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...]

Fun Game, Oratory Page & other stuff

Fun Game: Google "Obama agrees with Bush on Plame" & count the news outlets covering it. ZERO. unless you're looking at stuff from 2005, in which case you'll find tons of articles from Time, Newsweek and the rest decrying the "outting" of a Langley desk jockey; another of those "great moral imperative" stories that seem, well, so unimportant, now that Obama is president.My New Idea: An Oratory Page. Once this promised site re-do actually happens (and a get a few projects out of the way) I … [Read more...]

There go 150,000 jobs!

I'm not entirely sure the president hasn't reached outside of the scope of his job in setting emission standards - oh, what am I talking about - Obama is the Imperial President; the scope of his job extends to any place he says it does! He can do anything he wants to; (cuz he won) and the press won't complain. If he wants to come over to your house tomorrow and inspect your pantry shelves to make sure you're getting enough vitamin C and not too much fat, they'll be championing him for it. … [Read more...]

Is Obama trying to Lead or to Rule?

So, to no one's surprise, it looks like the US Government is going into the car business, something our founders certainly never intended.I keep watching Obama and wondering if he is trying to lead America to further greatness, or to simply bring her to heel?There is an absolute disconnect between what Obama says, and what he does. In his first 100 days he said he had "no interest" in running the banking and auto industries in this country, even as his hand crept out and snatched both under … [Read more...]

"…I prayed my way into thinking."

This I understand."The truth is that I did not think my way into praying. I prayed my way into thinking." - David P. Goldman, writing in First Things.Goldman gives a masterful exposition on why he wrote undercover as "Spengler" and looks at his journey into Jewishness, into becoming a prayerful, thinking, religious Jew.I recognize myself in some of what Goldman writes. I too blogged anonymously while writing freelance, and yes, coming out did have me pulling my punches a little at first, … [Read more...]

May 3; World Day of Prayer for Vocations & the Habit

The Benedictine Suscipe; "Accept me Lord, as Thou hast promised, and I shall truly live" A Benedictine of Mary makes her First ProfessionI want to invite all the People of God to reflect on the theme: Faith in the divine initiative - the human response. The exhortation of Jesus to his disciples: "Pray therefore the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest" (Mt 9:38) has a constant resonance in the Church. Pray! The urgent call of the Lord stresses that prayer for vocations … [Read more...]

A 7 year old's incredible legacy

Got this from reader Kay, and knew you'd want to know about it: You might remember her as the little girl with no hair — but with a huge smile — who asked the Washington Redskins’ Jason Taylor to dance during one of St. Jude’s “Thanks and Giving” commercials last fall.That was Catie O’Brien, 7, then a patient at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis, Tenn., where she was undergoing treatment for a rare type of pediatric cancer called Atypical Teratoid Rhabdoid Tumor. After her diagno … [Read more...]

Hail Colombia & other things

So, from 2006 onward, President George W. Bush tried to push a free trade agreement through Congress, and Mrs. Pelosi and her crew resisted and obstructed and vowed "no way" would it be allowed to happen. And Candidate Obama decried it. Mostly because Bush wanted it, you understand.Thankfully, President Obama - who, since his candidacy, has reversed himself with stunning frequency - has - as in the song "Simple Gifts" 'turned, turned to come 'round right' on this issue, and he is now … [Read more...]

Don't prosecute assaults, thefts & burglaries?

Reader misogynist - who is a libertarian sort - sends this along with the note, "this is some scary stuff, right here..."Misdemeanor crimes such as assaults, thefts and burglaries will no longer be prosecuted in Contra Costa County because of budget cuts, the county's top prosecutor said Tuesday.District Attorney Robert Kochly also said that beginning May 4, his office will no longer prosecute felony drug cases involving smaller amounts of narcotics. That means anyone caught with less than a … [Read more...]

On "feeling less free"

Yesterday I wrote about a conversation with a cabbie from Afghanistan who loves America but who feels "less free" here than he used to.We were talking about small laws and the encroachment of the state into our personal lives.In response I got an interesting email from an Aussie gent part of whose email I must redact for his own privacy:[Several] months ago I returned home to my home in. . .Australia, from the Middle East, where I had been deployed on operations. [It] is a generally … [Read more...]
