In the one month since Gen. McChrystal asked Obama for more troops in Afghanistan, 43 Americans have lost their lives. It is outrageous for a commander in chief to ignore a theater commander like this. But Obama has more important things to worry about than Americans dying in God-forsaken, poppy fields half way around the world, fighting a war we'll likely not win. He's got his left base to appease.....the radical, peace-at-any-cost cowards who got him elected. The administration is hemorrhaging support over its disastrous domestic agenda and the last group they want to alienate is the anti-war peaceniks.....who he'll lose of he sends more troops to Afghanistan.
Look, I'm about as skeptical as anybody about the likelihood of successful nation-building in a country without a functing government and partially controlled by the Taliban and drug lords. I'm almost to the point of saying we should stop sacrificing Americans' lives in places where it does no good and come home, but if Obama is unwilling to pull out then he should support totally, the war effort there. Leaving McChrystal high and dry while our boys die is unforgivable!
I think this shows just what an amateur Obama is and what weak, panty-waste's he's surrounded himself with. These people are worse than the Clintons in terms of politicizing every single breath Obama takes. He can be political about the domestic stuff but, lives are being lost over there.....DO SOMETHING ALREADY!!! Be a leader or be a follower but, Obama can't just stand around waiting for the Afghanistan problem to go away.
You may also remember that Sharon Tate, who was murdered by the Manson gang, was Polanski's pregnant wife at the time of her murder.
Today, Sharon's sister, is claiming that the rape by Polanski of the 13 year old was actually consensual sex. I assume she said this with a straight face. But a 13 year old cannot consent to anything, certainly not to having sex with a dirty, old pervert. To Hollywood reprobates, any, and I mean ANY kind of sex is not only OK but, encouraged, especially if you're a depraved, tortured artist. The more perverted and disgusting your sex acts, the more artistic you become in their eyes. One need look no further than prime-time TV to see that anonymous hookups, infidelity, and children having sex is all the rage in Hollywood.
Look for more shameless celebrities to argue against the extradition of Polanski from Switzerland, to face sentencing for his crimes, on the grounds that he's a talented artist and should be given special latitude given his cinematic contributions, kind of the way the media gave Ted Kennedy special latitude regarding the death of Mary Jo Kopechne, because of his support of health-care reform.
Stupid, depraved liberals....I swear!

NEW YORK (Reuters) – A New York state appeals court on Tuesday dismissed former TV newsman Dan Rather's lawsuit against CBS Corp in which Rather claimed he was made a scapegoat in a scandal over a 2004 report on then-President George W. Bush's military record.
The ruling on Tuesday by a panel of judges of the New York State Supreme Court Appellate Division said Rather's $70 million complaint should be dismissed in its entirety and that a lower court erred in denying CBS's motion to throw out the lawsuit.
Heh, heh....what's worse to a former, self-important news anchor than being forgotten entirely, other than being a pitiful, historical footnote, and then be unceremoniously tossed into the dustbin of history....while you're still alive to be humiliated by it, in the news you used to anchor? 'Cause if there's something worse, I can't think of it.
He deserves exactly what he's getting, for trying to orchestrate a presidential election by presenting as fact, documents that he knew to be phony at the time he presented them. And somewhere in Texas, Bush is smirking right about now and thinking, "What a putz Rather is!" And he's right.
Degenerate child predator Roman Polanski got arrested by Swiss authorities regarding his 31 year-old guilty plea for drugging, and repeatedly raping and sodomizing, a 13 year old girl, Samantha Gailey, in the Los Angeles home of Jack Nicholson. He fled the country and has never returned though he enjoys the praise and accolades of Hollywood's elite actors, no strangers to perversion themselves, who are arguing against his extradition from Switzerland.
This is Chappaquiddick all over again. Ted Kennedy can leave a girl to die in a river and liberals ignore it because he's for health-care reform. Roman Polanski can drug and rape a 13 year old girl and liberals ignore that because he made a couple of movies they like. The lesson here is that to depraved liberals, your support of leftist causes, and that you made a couple of popular movies, more than outweigh the life and rape respectively, of women who you victimized.
The moral of this story for women here is: the more popular the leftist is among his peers, the less your life and safety are worth in comparison to his "accomplishments".

In response to the existence of NATO(North Atlantic Treaty Organization) two of the world's most vile, extremist dictators are making a pact, on behalf of their respective countries, to form the South Atlantic Treaty Organization. The only problem is that Qaddafi's Libya and Chavez's Venezuela are both above the equator and neither is anywhere near the South Atlantic....morons!
I'm still laughing at them but, it would be far funnier if they didn't harbor such hatred of the West and particularly the US. And though both are comically imbecilic, they wish great harm to America and our allies. I'd like to take them less seriously, for the comedy alone but, they pose a serious threat to world stability.
(NY Post) - The unemployment rate for young Americans has exploded to 52.2 percent -- a post-World War II high, according to the Labor Dept. -- meaning millions of Americans are staring at the likelihood that their lifetime earning potential will be diminished and, combined with the predicted slow economic recovery, their transition into productive members of society could be put on hold for an extended period of time.
And worse, without a clear economic recovery plan aimed at creating entry-level jobs, the odds of many of these young adults -- aged 16 to 24, excluding students -- getting a job and moving out of their parents' houses are long. Young workers have been among the hardest hit during the current recession -- in which a total of 9.5 million jobs have been lost.
There is a direct correlation between the level of unemployment of young people and the increasing of the federal minimum wage, as this graph clearly shows. Forcing employers to pay more for labor than that labor is worth means that some workers have to get laid off in order to keep the business profitable. And it deprives young people of skills and experience needed to move up the wage ladder.
Democrats love to rationalize increasing the minimum wage by pointing out that a family of four cannot live on that low of an income but, only a small percentage of people remain at the minimum wage 6 months after landing that job. Unless you are an addict or a moron, you learn new skills, demonstrate to your employer that you are worth more, and your wages go up from there.
Don't expect the MSM to link the unemployment rate among young people with the increasing of the federal minimum wage, they way they should.

SAN FRANCISCO, California (CNN) -- A man snuck into the grizzly bear exhibit at the San Francisco Zoo Saturday but was rescued immediately afterward without incident, authorities said.
A zoo visitor alerted the facility's staff about the 27-year-old man's presence inside the enclosure, said spokeswoman Gwendolyn Tornatore.
Staffers fired a warning shot to keep the two bears away from the man, before securing them inside their dens, Tornatore said in a statement.
First, if a dude wants to feed himself to the grizzly bears, let him. It'd be a rare and excellent wildlife-in-action lesson for onlookers, as well as a what-NOT-to-do-at-the-zoo cautionary tale.
Second, instead of firing a warning shot to scare the bears away, why not just shoot the idiot in the enclosure? The bears would have to work less hard for their meal that way.

I swear, the treachery of the Obama administration knows no bounds. They are going to remove 384 agents from the southern border and redeploy some of them to guard the dangerous Canadian border....are you kidding me? Guard the Canadian border from what? Unemployed comedians sneaking in? What this amounts to is Obama kicking wide open, the back door to our country and inviting every diseased, pregnant, ignorant, jobless, slacker from Mexico into our living rooms. Wages for all kinds of jobs will be depressed as a result and not only will the illegals be poor, the people who got displaced or who have to work for sub-market wages will be newly poor too....exactly what liberals want.....as many Americans toiling in misery and poverty as possible, because a poor American needs government help and they'll vote for whoever promises them the biggest goodie bags filled with other peoples' money.

Yet another example of political indoctrination going on in our public schools. And you people try to tell me it's innocent and above board, or at least an isolated incident....it is not! It is widespread and insidious! You had better sit your kids down and clue them in to the ways of the world before their teachers do it for you.
This is flat-out idolatry! Since when in America do we worship our elected leaders, and force children to sing hosannas to the President as if he were our personal lord and savior? This kind of crap makes me sick to my stomach! You know the other countries where young children sing worshipfully to their Dear Leader? North Korea and Nazi Germany for crying out loud!
Like you need another reason to home-school your kids!

President Obama's "safe schools czar" is a former schoolteacher who has advocated promoting homosexuality in schools, written about his past drug abuse, expressed his contempt for religion and detailed an incident in which he did not report an underage student who told him he was having sex with older men.
I couldn't care less that he happens to be gay but, I do care that he's in favor of promoting a gay agenda, cloaked under the innocuous-sounding veil of "safe schools". He'll be promoted to us as a big anti-bullying guy but, that'll morph quickly into setting teaching agendas for promoting the gay lifestyle....some schools are already doing it.
He's got a public drug-abuse past, public loathing for religion, and evidently is OK with men molesting underage boys. Do these influences seem consistent with the kind of learning environment you want in your kids' classrooms?
It's like Obama dredges the bottom of the barrel to fill every position in his administration. That this degenerate happened to be a teacher once, makes him qualified in spite of all his other flaws. Actually, I think it's because of his flaws that Obama picked him. It seems to be why he picked all his other czars. They're all either communists, socialists, eugenicists, or radical social engineers. Why shouldn't the safe-schools czar be anything resembling normal? And I thought we already had an education secretary....what's that person's job if not to promote safe schools?

Some comedic mileage certainly has been gotten at Kanye's expense lately. He takes himself so seriously, this is what he fears most....being the butt of jokes. He may never live that moment down.
Hat tip to regular reader BBC for the pic.
Linebacker Robert Henson has yet to play in a regular-season game for the Redskins, yet he drew plenty of attention from veteran teammates and coach Jim Zorn on Monday after tweeting about the home crowd at Washington's 9-7 victory over St. Louis.
Fans booed during and after the game.
Following the victory, Henson tweeted: "All you fake half hearted Skins fan can .. I won't go there but I dislike you very strongly, don't come to Fed Ex to boo dim wits!!"
He also wrote: "The question is who are you to say you know what's best for the team and you work 9 to 5 at McDonald's."
Does Mr. Henson not realize the source of his absurd rookie salary IS the fans who he's calling dimwits? Tickets to NFL games run between $50-$100 for basic seats. It would be a month's car payment or a month's rent to take even a small family to a game. If you play like crap, they have a right to boo your awfulness. Hopefully, some maturity and restraint of the team veterans will rub off but, I predict that in a year or two, he'll be found with drugs or guns or something embarrassing that'll get him drummed out of the NFL, and we won't hear from him again until he gets busted dealing drugs to homeless dudes under a Dallas bridge. Guys with as little sense as Mr. Henson can't handle the responsibility of fame, freedom, unimaginable wealth, and influences of dingleberry friends that'll get him in trouble.

When it comes to protecting Obama politically, literally nobody is safe from the wheels of the HopeyChange bus, not even one of only two black state governors....
NEW YORK, Sept 20 (Reuters) - Embattled New York Governor David Paterson said on Sunday he was still running for office, in the face of reports that President Barack Obama had asked him to withdraw from the 2010 race for fear that he cannot regroup from a series of political setbacks.
The word on the street is that Obama(read Rahm Emanual) is worried that Rudi Guiliani will obliterate Patterson in the NY governor's race, giving him a high-profile launching pad from which to challenge Obama in 2012 or 2016. Plus, a strong republican governor in NY will weaken that state's democrat delegation to Washington and serve to check them in the state legislature. To keep Rudi out of the governor's office, the Obama administration wants democrat and friend-of-Obama, Anrdrew Cuomo, to run in place of Patterson, so they asked Patterson to not run at all.
I wonder what black activists like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson will have to say about the administration forcing a black governor out, in favor of a rich, white guy? My guess is you'll hear nothing but chirping crickets, as rank-and-file black democrats will keep quiet so as to not upset the HopeyChange apple-cart.

From The Guardian...
The swine flu pandemic could kill millions and cause anarchy in the world's poorest nations unless £900m can be raised from rich countries to pay for vaccines and antiviral medicines, says a UN report leaked to the Observer.
"cause anarchy in the world's poorest nations"....heh, heh. There's already anarchy in the world's poorest nations. That's why they're poor. This is just another attempt by vile, corrupt UN officials to guilt the productive nations into forking over our wealth to them. If those countries would institute the rule of law, economic freedom, and representative government rather than blood-thirsty, lawless dictatorships, they could be productive members of the world community too, and maybe produce their own drugs to combat epidemics.
With Obama chairing the UN security council, however, we just might see that $1.5billion USD get handed over to the thugs and despots that created the anarchy and chaos in the third world.

The woman, 60-year-old Zhou Juchang, made the claim after winding up at the bottom of a seven-metre rockface, fracturing her hip and breaking three ribs.
Now she’s suing her travel agent, who organised her trip into China’s Chengdu Wildlife Park.
The monkey allegedly flew into a rage when the woman refused to hand over the bag of monkey food which her tour guide recommended she buy.
A spokesman for the park said the woman’s mistake was showing fear.
“If you show fear a monkey will bully you,” he told London’s Metro
TRR's Life Lesson of the Day: kids, never show fear before a monkey or you'll be pushed off a cliff.
Pushed off a cliff by a monkey....heh, heh!
She dared to compare Obama's policy critics to the murderers of Harvey Milk and SF Mayor George Muscone in 1978. She even tried to generate some crocodile tears for the occasion. Folks this is dangerous territory to be treading by the Speaker of the House. To falsely liken one's political opponents to racists and murderers is beyond reprehensible! His admonishment said it was a "discredit to the House" but, what about tax-cheat Charlie Rangel? Who's discredited the House more than him, yet not a word from Speaker Pelosi about him? This glaring hypocrisy proves that it's nothing but tactical political posturing in the short term but, in the long term, the admonishment and the larger racism charge is craftily designed to make other critics of The One think twice before voicing their policy concerns. After all, nobody wants to be forced by the complicit, feckless media to defend the racism charge, regardless of how preposterous it is.

This man penned the following in 1931. It is amazing how different times were and how alike they remain. Our country will slide in deeper problems if today's youth don't stand up and stop it now.
" You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that government does not first take from someone else. When half the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they worked for, that my dear friends, is the beginning of the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it!"
Statements made that should be emblazoned on all our hearts. We are eerily close to the precipice of permanent peril and an irreversible path towards destruction. We need to stop and turn the train around - and quickly!

"I think an overwhelming portion of the intensely demonstrated animosity toward President Barack Obama is based on the fact that he is a black man, that he's African-American," Carter told NBC News. "I live in the South, and I've seen the South come a long way, and I've seen the rest of the country that shares the South's attitude toward minority groups at that time, particularly African-Americans."
"That racism inclination still exists, and I think it's bubbled up to the surface because of belief among many white people -- not just in the South but around the country -- that African-Americans are not qualified to lead this great country. It's an abominable circumstance, and it grieves me and concerns me very deeply," Carter said.
Jimmy Carter is a decrepit, self-loathing race-baiter. It's so easy, and predictable for a liberal, to swing at the lowest hanging fruit by calling his political opponents, and singling out his home--the South, racists, rather than confront their legitimate criticisms with logic and facts of his own. But that's what gutless liberals and the media do, trot out the racist charge to nullify anything the critic has to say, regardless of it's validity.
The man for whom the misery index was invented to describe the utter dreadfulness of his presidency should just go quietly away.

House Rules Committee Chairwoman Louise Slaughter (D-NY) has released a helpful, updated primer for members regarding their conduct on the floor and in committees.
Especially useful: The section on how to properly insult the executive branch in the in the chamber.
Under section 370 of the House Rules and Manual it has been held that a Member could:
• refer to the government as “something hated, something oppressive.”
• refer to the President as “using legislative or judicial pork.”
• refer to a Presidential message as a “disgrace to the country.”
• refer to unnamed officials as “our half-baked nitwits handling foreign affairs.”
Likewise, it has been held that a member could not:
• call the President a “liar.”
• call the President a “hypocrite.”
• describe the President’s veto of a bill as “cowardly.”
• charge that the President has been “intellectually dishonest.”
• refer to the President as “giving aid and comfort to the enemy.”
• refer to alleged “sexual misconduct on the President’s part.”
How about "wretched knave" or "traitorous vermin" or "lying sack of s%#t"? Are those still legal?
No President has been treated worse in front of congress than George Bush was by the left yet, the whining democrats bristle when a lone republican dares speak the truth and call Obama on only one of the many lies he told during his desperate health-care speech last Wednesday. Is this really what the democrats want the American people to see them wasting time doing as our jobs, home values, money value, and way of life circle the drain?
Keep digging that hole democrats. Never mind that your approval numbers across the board are lower than a ghetto thug's jeans. You've got nothing better to do than suck up to Obama with a bunch of partisan nonsense, as if you haven't been doing that for the last 10 months. Keep ignoring the American people who bankroll your fat paychecks. Keep doing whatever Obama and Rahm Emanual order you to do even though it's in direct contradiction to what your constituents tell you to do on their behalf. Just keep doing exactly what you're doing and see how the midterms go for you.
Or maybe this all just comes out of a fury that there weren't enough screamers to keep the black guy from getting elected.
Of course Mike, call it racism like every other moron tool in the media who is a useful idiot of the Left. Conservatives never doubted that a black guy could get elected President in America but, this black guy's policies are dead wrong and will irreparably harm America. We couldn't care less about his skin color, it's his agenda we despise.
I guess I won't be watching The Sport Reporters any more....thanks for ruining it for me Mikey.
Who plays hide and seek in a big empty room?
It's as if deranged, sadistic scientists in a pediatric mental hospital designed an experiment to see how children would handle solving a problem with no solution...or....a couple of bored kids killing time....you decide.

In the NYT, there's an article outlining how the government nanny-State can reverse this trend....
No one disputes that the $2.3 trillion we devote to the health care industry is often spent unwisely, but the fact that the United States spends twice as much per person as most European countries on health care can be substantially explained, as a study released last month says, by our being fatter. Even the most efficient health care system that the administration could hope to devise would still confront a rising tide of chronic disease linked to diet.
That’s why our success in bringing health care costs under control ultimately depends on whether Washington can summon the political will to take on and reform a second, even more powerful industry: the food industry.
There's only one thing that needs to be done. Allow the insurance companies to charge whatever their actuarial tables say they should charge extra for every 10 pounds over-weight you are. Then stand back and let the market transform the nation's eating habits over night. We don't need government taking over the food supplies the way it's taking over everything else. The consumer market can handle it as long as there's a real price to pay for being obese. Right now there really isn't. The government isn't the best solution for every single problem society has....good grief!
And here is Washington D.C. in the wake of liberals gathered for The One's inauguration....utterly disgusting!!!
Democrats are supposed to be the protectors of the environment but, they are nothing but a bunch of dirty, verminous litterbugs.
Conservatives left the capital exactly as they found it because conservatives take responsibility for ourselves. Liberals think everything is somebody elses responsibility. Food, shelter, clothing, mortgage payment, rescue from hurricanes....it's all somebody elses responsibility to provide it.
Let's hope the 9-12 demonstrations marked the beginning of the end of these street vermin trashing the country the way they trashed the capital.
At the VMA's last night, teen sensation Taylor Swift had just started her acceptance speech for Best Video, when racist moron Kanye West ran up on stage, grabbed the microphone right out of her hand, and announced that Beyonce' had the best video.....what a douche!
He's been acting like a jackass ever since he announced that George Bush hates black people, right after Katrina. If a white artist had grabbed the mic from a black winner during her acceptance speech, in favor of another white artist, there'd be hell to pay for it. But, if you are a member of a politically-favored, minority class, anything you do is justified in the eyes of guilty white people...unbelievable!
I would love to have seen Taylor smack him right in the mouth with her trophy.

The foot-fault cost her one point, taking the score to 15-40, double match point for Clijsters. Then her tirade at the judge cost her another point which ended the match. Whether the foot-fault was a good call or whether it should have even been called at that critical time in a semi-final match of a major tournament, is up for debate but, already, the race hustlers are out crying racism. Here's a typical comment from somebody who used the name Changewecanbelievein....figures.
"A foot fault would never have been called on Sharapova. She's a beautiful WHITE woman. Just what the elite tennis hypocrites want as the "face" of tennis. Admit it, this is racial."
To believe that the Asian line judge conspired with the tennis elites in Flushing Meadows to oust the black players early so they can have an all white final beyond preposterous! But, in the coming days, you watch ESPN and see if some race cards start getting thrown on the table over this.
Up to two million people marched to the U.S. Capitol today, carrying signs with slogans such as "Obamacare makes me sick" as they protested the president's health care plan and what they say is out-of-control spending. The line of protesters spread across Pennsylvania Avenue for blocks, all the way to the capitol, according to the Washington Homeland Security and Emergency Management Agency.
People were chanting "enough, enough" and "We the People." Others yelled "You lie, you lie!" and "Pelosi has to go," referring to California congresswoman Nancy Pelosi.
Demonstrators waved U.S. flags and held signs reading "Go Green: Recycle Congress" and "I'm Not Your ATM." Men wore colonial costumes as they listened to speakers who warned of "judgment day" - Election Day 2010.
I doubt if any network other than FoxNews gave it much coverage if any. They don't want to be seen as assisting Obama's political opponents even if it's a news-worthy story. Let's hope that Americans stay focused and in 2010, make congress pay dearly for what they've done. If you are represented by a liberal big spender, work to kick the bum out of office, and send a message to those who remain.....THEY WORK FOR US!!!

“We do not come to this decision lightly,” Census director Robert Groves wrote in a letter to ACORN, which was obtained by The Associated Press.
In splitting with ACORN, Groves sought to tamp down GOP concerns and negative publicity that the partnership will taint the 2010 head count.
“It is clear that ACORN’s affiliation with the 2010 census promotion has caused sufficient concern in the general public, has indeed become a distraction from our mission, and may even become a discouragement to public cooperation, negatively impacting 2010 census efforts,” Groves wrote.
Groves was personally tapped by Obama to head up the census. For him to jettison all affiliation with ACORN is remarkable because you know he had to have Obama's personal approval. Obama realized his popularity and credibility, even among his typically wild-eyed supporters, were being eroded when it came to light this week that ACORN officials in different offices advised under-cover investigators how to run prostitution rings, and other felony crimes, undetected.
After it was shown last year how ACORN workers in all 50 states falsified voter registrations, Americans across the country had threatened to not participate in the census if ACORN people were involved. You can imagine with ACORN people counting heads, the populations of Detroit, Washington DC, and all black population centers would inexplicably increase, and their congressional apportionment go up accordingly. In terms of corruption, ACORN is right up there with labor unions and the MOB, only unions and organized crime don't get handed billions in taxpayer cash for their activities. They don't need to be simply distanced, they need to be shut down.

Idiots at CNN report on air, the words "Bang, bang, bang" as actual gun shots...heh, heh.
The Coast Guard refused to apologize for a training exercise it conducted Friday in the Potomac River that sparked panic and confusion moments before as President Obama and his motorcade crossed a nearby bridge on its way to the Pentagon to commemorate the eighth anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.
Earlier Friday, confusion reigned on the Potomac following CNN reports of the Coast Guard firing 10 rounds at a suspicious boat and showed vessels circling in the water. But Coast Guard Chief Keith Moore said despite earlier reports, no shots were fired as part of the exercise.
The president was not in the area when the training exercise took place, Currier said. He explained that as part of its exercise, the Coast Guard aired simulated instructions to participants to fire 10 rounds and someone said "bang, bang, bang" to simulate compliance. But he said there were no shots actually fired and there were no suspicious boats.
What a collection of hapless rubes they are over at the Communist News Network!

This is great news for FOX and me.....
The one-hour FOX Business program, entitled Stossel, will debut during the fourth quarter of 2009 on FBN's primetime line-up, featuring in-depth reports and discussions surrounding libertarian issues in the United States and abroad. Each week Stossel will be joined by experts to explore consumer-focused topics such as free-market economies, civil liberties, the business of health care, social security, and free trade.
I have no idea how John Stossel lasted as long at ABC as he did. As a libertarian, he opposes almost everything those liberals stand for. I tend to fall more toward libertarian ideals than the other political ideologies and I watch Fox News so, this will be a perfect fit for me.
KABUL (AFP) – Criticism mounted on Thursday of the dramatic airborne rescue from Taliban territory of a kidnapped Western journalist who walked free as four others, including his Afghan colleague, were killed.
Negotiators were deep in talks with the Taliban to free New York Times reporter Stephen Farrell and appeared to be progressing well when British commandos intervened with the rescue operation, a source told AFP.
Farrell, who has dual British-Irish nationality, was freed unharmed, but his Afghan colleague, father-of-two Sultan Munadi, as well as a British soldier and an Afghan woman and child were killed.

The one consistent theme to Obama is that his actions are generally polar opposite of what he says. "We don't want to own car companies"---yet they own two car companies. "We don't want to own or operate banks"---yet they own and operate many banks. "We don't want to own mortgage companies"---yet they own the two largest mortgage companies now. "We believe in the power of free enterprise and the market"---yet every move they make is designed specifically to thwart the market and skirt the Constitution.
RNC Chair Michael Steele hit on this topic in an article today in Politico. Here's the gist of it as you get ready for Obama's address tonight....
After a masterfully conducted campaign last year, a campaign that redefined the artistry of marketing a candidate, this president has now finally found the limit of the power of marketing. As Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, who is one of the nation’s leading health care policy experts, said a few weeks back, “I don’t disagree with the things the president says on health care, I just find no correlation between his rhetoric and his actions.” There you have it.
Obama will tell us tonight that if we like our private insurance, we can keep it. He'll tell us that he won't cut health care for seniors. He'll tell us that there are 47million uninsured. He'll tell us that he won't raise taxes on anybody but the rich to pay for it all. He'll tell us that the "public option" is the only way to provide for the chronically uninsured. All these statements will be lies! The bills that are circulating around the house right now do exactly every one of these things.
Don't be fooled by Obama's compassionate delivery and glycerin tongue. Make no mistake, he wants single-payer health care for America, just like Canada and Great Britain are suffering under. Keep that thought in your mind as you watch him glide into the House chamber tonight like a cool breeze and basque in all the ridiculous applause interruptions. No matter what he says tonight or how wonderful and ideal it sounds, it's not, NOT what's going to happen....it never is.
Go here and read the article.
STUART - A defiant Rodney McGill prayed for affliction upon his adversaries prior to his sentencing in Martin County Circuit Court, and turned his back on Judge Sherwood Bauer Jr. as he was handed a 20-year prison term for his part in fraudulently obtaining some $1 million in real estate loans.
"Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, for every witness called against me, I pray cancer in their lives, lupus, brain tumor, pancreatic cancer," McGill intoned at his counsel table prior to the start of the hearing Tuesday.
Wait, he mentioned cancer twice. And who jinxes his antagonists with Lupus? That's pretty specific. And no mention of pestilence, famine, drought, or plagues. What self-respecting, hellfire and brimstone preacher doesn't curse his enemies with those old-school torments and tribulations? Cancer....please! They can treat that but, what're they going to do about a plague of locusts and frogs? Now that's a curse!
Regular reader BBC involuntarily contributed this excellent poster to the TRR archives today....I swiped it from her. As a fellow parent of a teen, somehow I don't think she'll mind.
If you are a teen and you're reading TRR, I have to assume you have a modicum of sense. I must also assume you have enough street smarts to know on which side your bread is buttered. So show a little appreciation for the fact that your parents pretty much support you like a welfare case. Follow their rules and do what they ask you to do and don't act like you deserve what they provide for you.

See, by over-reaching on this relatively benign issue, we've fallen right into their trap and damaged our own credibility. We should have kept quiet, let him say something political in his 20min speech, and then hammer him for it after the fact. Now we just look like raving lunatics and conspiracy nuts. We have the advantage on Obama and the democrat-controlled congress...let's not get fooled into harming our position with red herrings like this again.
If you want to read the text of the speech, go here.

Some conservatives, driven by radio pundits and bloggers, are urging schools and parents to boycott the address. They say Obama is using the opportunity to promote a political agenda and is overstepping the boundaries of federal involvement in schools.
"As far as I am concerned, this is not civics education—it gives the appearance of creating a cult of personality," said Oklahoma Republican state Sen. Steve Russell. "This is something you'd expect to see in North Korea or in Saddam Hussein's Iraq."
Look, I have no problem with the President trying to inspire kids to stay in school, make better grades, strive to succeed, respect your parents and teachers, etc. If he makes any agenda overtures or makes the speech about himself and tries to inspire the kids to follow him rather than their parents, then that I have a problem with. It seems that since the uproar, the white house has backed off considerably on the politicization of the speech.
What conservatives have to fear is not the politicization of education, we already have that in spades. What we should avoid is getting sidetracked by silly stunts by the administration like this. If we go hysterical over this kind of thing, then nobody will take seriously our hysteria over health-care, defense, the Constitution, etc. Our kids are getting indoctrinated into liberal dogma daily already, what's one innocuous speech by Obama going to add? Conservative parents can use this as a "teachable moment", a phrase Obama himself likes to use. Explain to your kids that they don't serve the President, he serves them. Depending on age, explain the Constitution or other age-appropriate civics points.
We look a little silly getting bent out of shape over one speech, provided that Obama has toned down the political rhetoric and teachers don't demand students show fealty to, and a desire to serve, The One.
We should pick our fights when it's really important and this just doesn't register on the Richter scale enough for me to worry about that much.

This urinal is a combination sink and urinal. The top portion contains the sink for washing your hands after going. During and after washing, the sink water cascades down to flush the urinal part of the contraption. There’s no need for a separate flush which makes this a green device, saving water.
Hey, why not? Stupid, gross hippies already drink their own urine and shower water, why not wash their hands in the same porcelain opening they pee in? How long after installation before some jerk teenager decides to pee in the hand station? 5 minutes? And how long after that before another one drops a deuce in there? Then where'll you dumb hippies wash your hands?
Thanks to Moonbattery for the story.
There wasn’t much parenting in that house. Sarah doesn’t cook, Todd doesn’t cook—the kids would do it all themselves: cook, clean, do the laundry, and get ready for school. Most of the time Bristol would help her youngest sister with her homework, and I’d barbecue chicken or steak on the grill.
She told me that once Bristol had the baby she and Todd would adopt him. That way, she said, Bristol and I didn’t have to worry about anything. Sarah kept mentioning this plan. She was nagging—she wouldn’t give up.
...she started talking about how nice it would be to quit and write a book or do a show and make “triple the money.” It was, to her, “not as hard.” She would blatantly say, “I want to just take this money and quit being governor.” She started to say it frequently, but she didn’t know how to do it.
The media hate Sarah Palin so much that they'll run literally anything, regardless of credibility, if they think it'll smear her. If an alien with three breasts from Mars visited Earth and had something nasty and unsubstantiated to say about Sarah Palin, they'd gleefully run that too. Anything that bashes Sarah Palin, the more unfair the story and the more unreliable the source, the better. The template is to harm Sarah Palin so, nothing else matters.
Levi the weasel had better hope Todd Palin doesn't catch him in a dark alley somewhere or, hell need a proctologist to get Todd's boot out of his rectum.

As I'm sure you've heard, Obama will be addressing all school children in their classrooms. Ostensibly, it's to encourage learning, determination, staying in school, making better grades, etc but, teachers across the country are receiving marching orders in advance of the speech...
...in advance of the address, the Department of Education has offered educators "classroom activities" to coincide with Obama's message.
Students in grades pre-K-6, for example, are encouraged to "write letters to themselves about what they can do to help the president. These would be collected and redistributed at an appropriate later date by the teacher to make students accountable to their goals."
Teachers are also given guidance to tell students to "build background knowledge about the president of the United States by reading books about presidents and Barack Obama."
During the speech, "teachers can ask students to write down key ideas or phrases that are important or personally meaningful."
For grades 7-12, the Department of Education suggests teachers prepare by excerpting quotes from Obama's speeches on education for their students to contemplate -- and ask as questions such as "Why does President Obama want to speak with us today? How will he inspire us? How will he challenge us?"
The teachers' unions are in lock-step with Obama. This isn't a teachable moment, it's an indoctrination moment. If some kid is inspired to stay in school or make better grades, then good but, it's likely that teachers will use this to force students to pledge allegiance to Obama's goals for them and and country, to embrace Obama's ideas of collectivism and wealth spreading, and become even more glassy-eyed than they already are from environmental brain-washing.
I have a 15 year old sophomore. If he comes home with idiotic worksheets in which he must answer, "How will he inspire us?" and " How will he challenge us?", I swear my head's going to explode!
Here's how I'd answer how Obama inspires me....he inspires me to fight tooth and nail the coming collectivist nightmare he's envisioned for America, the nationalization of entire swaths of American private enterprise now under his control, the usurpation of powers that are not granted to the executive branch by the Constitution, and finally, I'm inspired to help kick out of office, any politician from national representative to local school boards, who support in any way, his deconstruction of America into a second-rate, nanny-State.
Yeah, I'd say I'm inspired!

LOS CABOS, Mexico (AP) - Emergency workers struggled to evacuate thousands of reluctant slum dwellers as extremely dangerous Hurricane Jimena approached Mexico's resort-studded Baja California Peninsula on Tuesday.
Jimena, just short of Category 5 status with winds of near 155 mph (250 kph), could rake the region of harsh desert fringed with picturesque beaches and fishing villages as a major hurricane by Tuesday evening
Police, firefighters and navy personnel drove through shantytowns, trying to persuade some 10,000 people to evacuate shacks made of plastic sheeting, wood, reeds and even blankets.
Perhaps New Orleans mayor Ray Nagin has some school buses the Mexicans could borrow to get the people out of harms way....that is unless the Mexicans, like the NO residents, refuse to ride school buses and prefer to wait on Greyhound to rescue them in luxury. Let's hope there's no Superdome in Baja for people to take shelter in, or else there might be some cannibalism in a day or two and we'd be treated to Shep Smith and Geraldo crying on air about it, only to find out there was none.
Or maybe, just maybe, poor Mexicans in the path of a cat-5 hurricane will get themselves out of the path and spare their country a national guilt trip for not doing more. And maybe there won't be any looting of TV's and booze just because it's there and nobody will stop them from stealing it. Regardless of what happens, somehow the US will be blamed for the squalid conditions of the area, or the slowness of rescue efforts, or the tininess of FEMA trailers, or the taste of the bottled water we send down there. Whatever, in the media, the greedy, rich US will get blamed for whatever ill befalls downtrodden peasants in other countries, especially if it can be linked to global warming.
WASHINGTON - He has torn through magazines and stray socks, even sunk his teeth into the president's gym shoes. Charm school taught him to sit, heel and shake a paw on command. He spent his first summer vacation on breezy Martha's Vineyard.
That's just a scoop of the poop on Bo's first few months as First Dog of the United States.
Is it just me, or does reading that from a serious news outlet make you feel like you've just stepped in a steaming pile of Bo's poo?
What explains the media's absurd obsession with Obama's stupid dog? Helpful hint: it's their absurd obsession with Obama himself that explains it. It fits their preconceived template of the perfect family, with the perfect daughters, the first lady with perfect, effortless style sense, advancing the perfect liberal agenda to fundamentally change America into the country it's supposed to be. It's the next Camelot for most of the press. What the Kennedy's left behind, the Obama's will move forward as they define the quintessential American, first family.
It matters not that Obama's agenda will quickly morph America into a second-rate, European-style nanny-State, flush with dependency and scarce on liberty. For America to have finally elected a suave black guy as President means that dissent must not be tolerated, or at the very least called racist, lest it impede The One's visionary molding of American in his own image. And the media should look away, ignoring the obvious wrongs with these ideas, instead focusing on the trivial, Obama minutiae like his stupid, mangy, flea-bitten, Portuguese water dog. After all, this is the land of Idol and Paris Hilton. Americans are shallower than bird-baths and dimmer than appliance bulbs, and they love pooch coverage. Any people that swoon every time Hollywood nitwits open their mouths, can be easily fooled into favoring any disaster of a health care/stimulus bill as long as they like personally, the Obama's and their dog.
Over in the Washington Post this morning, George F. Will is calling for our withdrawal from Afghanistan. I have to admit that he raises some good arguments. Is this cat box worth attempting to save? No matter how you look at it, the answer is basically, no.
For me, these are the questions that must be answered before we send Americans to die anywhere on Earth....if we are going in, what are our objectives? Are they realistic? How much American blood and treasure are we willing to sacrifice to achieve these goals. And in the case of Afghanistan, it's a God-forsaken, drug lord-infested, crap-hole without a shred of value other than the annual poppy crop. Suppose we do kill the Taliban, which we can't, what'll be left but a crater of destitution and Muslim fanaticism?
-Have we gotten rid of the Taliban? No
-Have we found Bin Laden and killed him? No
-Have many Americans died there? Yes
-What did their deaths ultimately accomplish, given that we cannot build a nation out of rocks, third-world, Muslim zealotry, and opium, because that's all there is?
