Obama: "Not talking…is ridiculous"

My readers have better memories than I do. Today, I got this in the mail from an reader who asks to be identified as "A Product of Pittsburgh Steelworkers":I had written to you before the election about how then Candidate Obama would no longer talk to a television station in Florida because he didn't like some of the questions they asked Joe Biden. See your article Obama: Yes to Iran, No to WFTV from October 2008.But even I would never have imagined that he would carry this over to an … [Read more...]

Catching up on random things…

The US has relinquished control of the internet. Most powerful communication tool out there -potent delivery system for the weapon of ideas. Why should we want to control that? The internet is a pain, the MSM has to keep scrubbing it all the time!Then again we apparently do want to control this?About the Vinegar at Jesus' Crucifixion: We'd talked about it a little here, but Julie at Happy Catholics has been resourceful about it and you'll want to read what she's dug up. It's VERY … [Read more...]

Whataweekend linkfest

So, wait. Obama has known for months that Iran had made serious progress with nukes. Hmmm.Doesn't that mean someone has to answer for giving Bush the "Iran has no nukes, is no where near developing them" intel that the Dems and left used as yet another hammer to use against the last American president? I'm just asking. And here are a bunch of interesting links, offered without comment, for your Sunday reading between games:Religion: A Must Read: Giving Birth and "Yes" Inside Catholic: … [Read more...]

Headline questions

Saddest headline in my email today: George W. Bush was the last American President.I'm in sort of a cranky mood, especially after getting this thing in my email a dozen times. Not the HA post, the vid. If you can watch it you've got a stronger stomach than I do. And if you want info on the UI behind it, Malkin has it. Ugh, and ugh.So, I'll start with this video, instead. Note the line: "These are bad Americans, and they're putting our country at risk."Okay, I have questions.Oil … [Read more...]

Feel the Gleichschaltung

Reading through this transcript, I was struck by two things. One was the aroma of self-intoxication. These bureaucrats and artists and activists are utterly besotted by the contemplation of their own virtue. They know what’s good for the country, and what’s good for you, and they’re willing to devote themselves ceaselessly to making it happen.The second thing that strikes one about this transcript is the aura of menace that floats just behind the talk of passion, pushing the president’s agenda, … [Read more...]

Oh, nuts! Obama Speech Reax

I have not one, not two but three things I have to start writing for various deadlines, so I'm going to offer you a quick look-around from my email and a few sites and then tip the hat and ride off into the sunset for most of the day, pardners.Obama was going to bring "his own plan" on healthcare to the Congress yesterday, wasn't that the pre-speech meme?"This is the momentism!": Again with the Broadwayesque-Bombast. Every Obama speech is "the moment." Say, isn't that the big song from … [Read more...]

Prayer Requests & Housekeeping

Okay, it's a hodge-podge, but I have a lot to cover.First up, if you are inclined to prayer, please pray for a boy in critical condition: Ben had a heart attack a few days ago on the soccer field. His heart attack it turns out, was from a huge blood clot in his leg, which has since been amputated below the knee. He is stabilizing but still in need of much prayer.Also, some may recall praying for blogger Greg Cotharn's sister-in-law Lisa as she underwent some adult-stem-cell therapies. … [Read more...]

Sebelius cheers thugs & a GREAT photo essay

There is offensive language on this video, so if that bothers you, you are warned. To my way of thinking the physical violence is more offensive:Source: The indispensable Hot AirThe day after the attack on a fellow selling buttons and "Don't Tread on Me" flags (and which immediately preceded this event), Health Secretary Kathleen Sebelius held a conference call to the SEIU, during which she greeted her union "brothers and sisters" and said "keep doing what you're doing!"Culture of … [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...]
