Miranda Rights for Terrorists & President Opposite

Over breakfast, my husband and I were discussing President Obama's Cairo speech, wherein he lectured the West about the freedom of Muslim women to wear the hijab (Obama called it a hajib; is either correct?), but said nothing about Muslim nations giving them the freedom to not wear the covering, if they choose."He speaks here about nations not having the right to tell other nations what to do," my husband mused, "but does precisely the opposite with regards to Israel; he's always telling … [Read more...]

600,000 jobs "saved or created"

The intellectually incurious press is in full-obedience mode. If the president wants them to report - with straight faces - that Obama is going to snap his fingers and, using the same ideas he proposed before he took office, "create" 600,000 jobs, or save them, or something, well, that's what they'll do for him.Hmmm...now this doesn't add up: If Obama was making these proposals before he took office, but he's now claiming (as he does nearly every day) that the Big Bush Mess He Inherited On … [Read more...]

Lolcat Obama & Mustache: Hussein-alicious!

Barack Obama; Dreams of his MustacheBarack Obama continues to slowly reveal himself to the people he has been elected to serve.He told us something about himself when he put the murder of an abortionist over the murder of one of his soldiers. The death of the abortionist was immediately condemned with a security deployment ordered. It took days upon days for the death of his soldier, at the hands of a convert-to-Islam intent on mayhem, to be acknowledged with the release of a woefully … [Read more...]

The word of the week is "crazy" – UPDATED

UPDATE: Please note, I had a copy of the projected deficit chart which you can see here included with this piece, but it apparently violated my photohost's terms of use.So the Journolist or whoever it is who co-ordinates the narratives for the Mainstream Media, seem to have settled on the word "crazy," and "insane," to describe people who are not "moderates," like them.If you do not like this chart and think something should be done about it, you are "crazy"From the LA Times: … [Read more...]

If this is correct, liberty is almost gone -UPDATED

I am going to look around more before commenting further, but if this is correct then we're looking at something very bad, indeed....the democratically lead Congress has proposed the “Pay for Performance Act” which passed Thursday with even some Republican Congressman voted for it. ... The scariest part of the bill is that while you’re serving as a “volunteer,” you’re prohibited from participating in worship and church activities, political rallies and being involved in a union. In short, your … [Read more...]

SoulWow Clean, Cobb & other things

A friend of mine just dropped a hint - a veiled one, as in, "maybe I'll go to the church down the street and find out what it takes to become Catholic," which made me happy, of course. I gave him the line from noted conservative Paul Johnson: "come on in, it's awful!" We can keep each other company in exile.Anyway, that's cool. Pray for his discernment?While you're praying, please pray for Kim and her husband and their baby. I briefly mentioned their plight here, but was waiting for … [Read more...]

A Recovery Party? Random Chills, Thrills & Myths

Comrades, it's difficult to keep up, but the mandatory service requirement requires that you try. The oxymoronic thing passed in the Senate. It passed by a healthy margin.Yesterday a thoughtful young 24 year old whom I have known since he was about 10 or 11 sent along this piece about California regulating car colors, and I wrote back - feeling a little bit like King Arthur in the last scene of Camelot, "someday you will tell your children about the mythical land of America, where people … [Read more...]

Workers: Embrace your mandatory volunteerism!

Comrades, I am out today, but wanted to throw a few links up.On the heels of the very interesting Mike Rowe, of "Dirty Jobs", and his thoughts on work, dignity and AIG rage, some very disturbing reading, much of it thanks to Larwyn:Every American a Volunteer: the incomprehensible legislation that is speeding through Congress and will take away your right to do or not do a thing. So much for Freedom in America, circa 2009.Obama presses for more power, less transparency. What you O-lovers … [Read more...]

Obama & Co Theater: Chaos & Cajolery UPDATED

Okay, so...60 days into this new presidency, it looks to me like we're going to spend the next four years watching a non-stop play of infinite acts. With none of the wit or wisdom of Pride & Prejudice, Obama and Company are going to treat us to Chaos & Cajolery.Basically, the theater production is 137 acts (presented without intermission) of Barack Obama and/or any one of his supporting players (from the veep, the speaker, the secstate, the sectreas and on down to the lowly press … [Read more...]

PJ O'Rourke Pulls Not a Punch – UPDATE

PJ O'Rourke is dealing with cancer, right now, so if he wanted to, he could defend the president's recent executive order promoting (with his typical strawmen and ungenerously snide references to his predecessor) the federal funding of embryonic stem cell research. He could wail and weep "poor me, I might need this research. I might get healed with it, and since the world is all about me, me, me, we should take this big moral jump and try! For me!"O' Rourke could ignore the fact that … [Read more...]
