"Shut Up," he explained – UPDATED

Source<centerWrites Allahpundit: "It’s practically a taunt."Indeed, I find it breathtaking. The man is supposed to be the leader of the country, the president of ALL the people, not just the ones who agree with him, and he's basically over half the nation to just shut up and fall in line.In fact, the president and his White House have been so irresponsible this week, what with their, "punch back twice as hard" nonsense (good going, there, chief) and so blatantly authoritarian with t … [Read more...]

Protesting with Detachment, MLK-style -UPDATED

Early yesterday evening, I wrote:You know who could put a stop to the bad feelings arising in this country? President Obama, who is supposed to be the leadership. Just as Bill Clinton and Hillary Clinton backed off when they realized America was not into having their Healthcare taken over by the government, Obama could say, “you know, I’m moving kind of fast here, maybe we’ll shelve this for a while and concentrate more on putting people back to work, which is urgent.”Such a move would be an … [Read more...]

Obey-mian Representative Democracy

SourceI'll say this for Life Under the Obama Regime, the inclusion of communist-inspired propaganda art has certainly upgraded and enlivened political expression. This is much more captivating (and substantive) than, for example, the played-out Bushian beheadings and vampires. (H/T)Then there is the spreading Joker, which apparently has been collecting new captionsArt appreciation aside, does anyone remember the recent demonizing of corporate fellows who dared to take private jets to … [Read more...]

Little Sisters of Poor, seeking alms

Sr. Maria Lourdes, L.S.P. makes her First Profession of VowsSome of you may remember Sr. Maria Lourdes from her appearance on In the Arena a few months back. Making the acquaintance of Sr. Lourdes, Sr. Camille and Sr. Mary Richard was a memorable day; all three women were lit with uncommon joy and were so lovely to talk to. Sr. Lourdes stayed in my awareness (and my prayers) because she was so serenely composed, even when discussing her excitement that "if it pleases God," she would soon be … [Read more...]

No, you can't see the numbers; the King is a Fink

The King is a Fink by Parker & HartSo, the White House is not going to give us taxpayers a timely update on the nation's money and employment situation.They're just gonna "hold that information back" until Congress goes into recess.They're just gonna keep everyone in the dark until they muscle through his unpopular Healthcare legislation - that 1,000-page, unread, undebated document - that will push our deficit into unbearable territory, give the government unprecedented control over … [Read more...]

Obama, "no excuses," Boxer inexcusable – UPDATED

I like this clip of President Obama speaking forcefully and passionately, and I think, from the heart, about teaching our children to expect more from themselves.Embedded video from CNN VideoObama is speaking to the NAACP, but his message is pertinent to all of America, where we spend a lot of time telling our children how "special" they are, but don't re-inforce that message by allowing them to really discover their uniqueness and individual genius by offering enough daily challenges and … [Read more...]

Science Czars & Healthcare; When Life is devalued…UPDATED

President Obama's plans are to appoint 32 Czars within his administration. These are people about whom Congress does not advise or consent, and about whom the press is conveniently incurious. So far, the press thinks they're all just brilliant and they have no problem with a president appointing 32 Czars accountable only to him.Whadda you think of that? You comfortable knowing that these "czars" escape serious but are given some rather potent power with little oversight?I mean, come … [Read more...]

The difference goes beyond the pitch

I see I was not the only one watching last night's All-Star Game who wondered if David Axelrod had negotiated the bizarre angle (there is no other word for it, if you're a baseball-watching fan) used to showcase President Barack Obama's ceremonial "first pitch." I have never seen a president throw a pitch, before, where the angle left out the catcher at the plate.Yes, I had to wonder if the shot was planned that way, if the White House was so insecure about this teleprompter-addicted … [Read more...]

Palin, Obama & Not quite pulled together yet

I know it must seem like I'm being lazy and not attending to my work over here; it's not that. I just can't seem to settle in and focus on much.The news feels like it's all coming in too fast to process, the congress is passing mammoth bills it can't be bothered to read. As the deficit tops ONE TRILLION DOLLARS for the first time, ever, the president is standing at ship's helm, a deep gouge in his hull, and blocking our views while saying "everything is mostly great; things are working … [Read more...]

Iranians use Michael Jackson to get attention

The clever Iranians have figured out that the only way to get the attention of the press today is to do a Michael Jackson Merge, intersecting their story with his.More on the excessively pop-minded press by Francis Beckwith.If we could just get these Iranians freed up, maybe a few of them could teach us how to throw stones and stuff at this absurd rogue congress, before they completely destroy our own country with their fake climate bills that Obama has already promised will lead to … [Read more...]
