"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...]

Chronic Pain, Insurance & Neo

NeoNeocon goes deeply personal to chronicle a horrendous-sounding injury, years of pain, and how this is relevant to what may be in our own future. It's long, but please give it a read. Neo was told there was "nothing" that could be done and that pain management would be difficult as well. Finally - after years - she had surgery. But this is pretty sobering when our president is saying, "maybe you won't need the surgery, maybe you just take the painkiller."It was actually my injuries that … [Read more...]

Michelle Malkin, The View, The Book

Promoting her book Culture of Corruption; Obama and his Team of Tax Cheats, Crooks and Cronies Michelle Malkin made it to The View this morning and hashed it out with Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar and the rest.The video is probably going viral, and you can watch it either here.The View is execrable programing, shrill and often demented. It would be vastly improved by simply replacing Joy Behar with a genuine magpie, (it was Behar who convinced me that President Bush absolutely needed to be … [Read more...]

All of your base are belong to us…UPDATED

Considering that for many of us our computers are very much our "base" this is pretty damned chilling. Not a Beck fan, but pianogirl sent this my way and urged me to watch. WOW. Astounding. Is this still America? Where is the press on this? I know the clause being cited here is meant to apply to dealership computers (and not ordinary buyers) but the fact that the clause exists at all is troubling. At its most innocent, this is unbelievably sloppy. At it's worst, it's downright … [Read more...]

"Immoral Villains!" sez Nancy "Queeg" Pelosi – UPDATED

Okay, I've decided that Nancy Pelosi (whose Native American name might be "Stands With An Angry Little Fist" ala "Dancing With Wolves") is beginning to sound like a paranoid lunatic who can find a convenient villain any time she needs one, as Tom Elia points out here.Thus spaketh The Pelosi:"They are the villains in this," Pelosi said of private insurers. "They have been part of the problem in a major way. They are doing everything in their power to stop a public option from happening. And … [Read more...]

"I Love My Life"

I don't know why it is but my nightstand drawers routinely get filled and then overfilled with the weirdest, most random stuff, until finally I cannot close them anymore. This morning became "clean up" day, and aside from finding scores of broken pencils and no sharpeners, a paper I'd written for an Anthropology class 15 years ago, a worrisome number old invoices, some snarled up threads and a small tube of toothpaste, I also found a little card Buster had made for me when he was about 5 or 6 … [Read more...]
