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...]

Happy Labor Day!

As you gather with your families today, for one last cookout, enjoying your easily-purchased beer, cold-transported from the brewer, your propane grill -probably invented by someone who'd forgotten to buy the charcoal lighter fluid, some time in the past- texting on your phones and so forth, remember to be thankful; say a prayer for those who have less, particularly those people who dream of living the life you have while facing oppression in third-world countries, where their "president" is … [Read more...]

Pushing Suicide when Love will do…

I don't know how I missed this piece, a guestpost at Jim Blazsik, by someone I think I may have heard of before, a woman who calls herself Sr. Kerry of the Immaculate Heart. who gives a brief bio here and also describes the organization she is apparently in the process of forming, the Institute of the Queen of Peace.None of that is what matters, though. What matters is the incredible truth she has written here, asking "Is Suicide the Answer", and recounting her experiences in a UK hospital … [Read more...]

"The stuff priests are made of…" UPDATED

Wow, a great photo via the Crescat, who recounts the story she found here and marvels at "the stuff priests are made of":4 June 1962. Navy chaplain Luis Padillo was giving last rites to dying soldiers as sniper fire surrounded him. A wounded soldier pulled himself up by clinging to the priest’s cassock, as bullets chewed up the concrete around them. Hector Rondón Lovera, who had to lie flat to avoid getting shot, later said that he was unsure how he managed to take this picture. [See all pi … [Read more...]

"The narrative WILL be maintained…" -UPDATE

A terrific spiel by Bill Whittle - a nice history lesson and forbidden logic to boot. It's 13 minutes long. Don't miss it.UPDATE: Don't miss this: Another example of how narratives are maintained. But you know that's one of my pet peeves, right - how the press reports on presidents with differing letters after their names?Although I don't hear "the recession is over", anymore. Do you?I don't know how we're supposed to believe in anything, trust anything or have faith in anything the … [Read more...]

Equality of Opportunity or of Outcome?

Let's look some more at this piece by Jillian Bandes, on Obama's new "Chief Diversity Officer," Mark Lloyd.I was a bit snarky yesterday when I wrote of this newly-created office:Does it seem to you that the Obama administration makes up titles and offices the way Bluto made up new names for Animal House Pledges?“You’ll be…the Chief Diversity Officer!”“Why?”“Why the hell not?”It certainly does seem that the Obama administration is interested in creating a million little bureaucracies … [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...]

"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...]

"Carrying Swastikas…"

(H/T)Nancy Pelosi, Speaker of the House: "They're carrying swastikas and symbols like that...".Kevin Aylward says of Pelosi's assertion: What a CROCK! You'll want to read it, and then take a look at the "nazi thugs that have Pelosi so worried.Barbara Boxer, D-CA: Townhall protesters are "too well dressed..." to be real.Repeat after me:The fascist is whoever is trying to shut you up, shut you down, dis-employ you, silence you, cripple you or marginalize you for the crime of daring to … [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...]
