Navy Seals Slam Obama For Using Them In Bin Laden Killing

By Toby Harnden

|

Serving and former US Navy SEALs have slammed President Barack Obama for taking the credit for killing Osama bin Laden and accused him of using Special Forces operators as ‘ammunition’ for his re-election campaign.

The SEALs spoke out to MailOnline after the Obama campaign released an ad entitled ‘One Chance’.

In it President Bill Clinton is featured saying that Mr Obama took ‘the harder and the more honourable path’ in ordering that bin Laden be killed. The words ‘Which path would Mitt Romney have taken?’ are then displayed.

Hello Chairman Mao



The 'Hopey/Changey/ thing is history. As of today the official Obama slogan for the election of 2012 is, get this, "Forward". The left wing arm of the DNC, MSNBC, latched onto 'lean forward' a few months ago. I have no idea what it means. It's sad the powers to be in the Obama administration didn't use a slogan from one of their heroes, "The Great Leap Forward". Chairman Mao would be so proud.



Huffington Rips Obama For Osama

Who would have seen this coming?
On Monday’s “CBS This Morning,” Huffington Post editor-in-chief Arianna Huffington condemned President Barack Obama’s re-election campaign for an ad questioning whether or not presumtive GOP nominee Mitt Romney would have killed Osama bin Laden.
The campaign ad features former President Bill Clinton applauding Obama, and takes what some say are Romney’s own words out of context to score political points. The Romney campaign condemned the ad and Huffington agreed.
“I agree with the Romney campaign,” she said.

Where The Heck Is Mom?



UK Mail Online: London England:

Frightened and alone, 95-year-old Doris Miller lay on her hospital trolley as hour after hour went by, wondering why no one had come to see her.
The old lady was exhausted and in pain after falling in the shower and hurting her leg. But following the drama of the ambulance dash to A&E, she had been wheeled into an ante-room . . . and parked there, like a piece of left luggage, for 28 hours.
Away from the routine meal-and-tea rounds on the wards, she had been given hardly anything to eat or drink and no proper medical care. She vaguely recalls being given a sandwich or two, but can’t quite remember by whom.
And she simply could not understand why her devoted son Michael had not arrived.


Harrowing delay: Doris Miller, 96, with her son Michael, who had been frantically searching for her
Harrowing delay: Doris Miller, 96, with her son Michael, who had been frantically searching for her

As day turned to night, and night became morning, Mrs Miller became more confused, distressed, and fearful for her safety. She had no way of knowing that Michael, 67, had been frantically searching for her — but East Surrey Hospital in Redhill had completely lost track of where they had put her.
In fact, they managed to locate her only after Mr Miller called the hospital chief executive to say he was phoning the police to report his mother as a missing person.
‘I was furious,’ said Mr Miller. ‘This is what happens when you put too much pressure on a system that doesn’t work.’
An appalling but isolated case? If only it were.
Earlier this month, the College of Emergency Medicine (CEM), which represents A&E doctors, told NHS managers that they should routinely leave patients on hospital trolleys to alleviate overcrowding in casualty units.

Dog Jokes

They're all the rage don't ya' know. Ever since it was revealed that Obama liked hot dogs as a lad we, the electorate, have been subjected to pooch humor. Here exposed are a couple of jocular stories from Jimmy Kimmel and our leader:

From the Secret Service to the Kardashians, everything was fair game at the annual White House Correspondents' dinner. But the featured item on the menu was dog ... jokes -- which figured, since Barack Obama's old admission to eating dog as a child was just recently revived as a campaign sideshow. "Last week we learned that the president's two favorite steaks are rib eye and seeing eye," cracked comedian Jimmy Kimmel, the evening's host. But even Kimmel got a taste that it's tough to work a room better than the Obama himself. The president touched on Sarah Palin's recent hosting of "Today" to segue into the night's toughest line: "What's the difference between a hockey mom and a pit bull? A pit bull is delicious."

"I Am So In Love With Me"

hat tip: no way girl

Shockaroo

Barack Obama has already held more re-election fundraising events than every elected president since Richard Nixon combined, according to figures to be published in a new book.
Obama is also the only president in the past 35 years to visit every electoral battleground state in his first year of office.
Things not included: riding a girls bike with a leg clip attached. Golfing with no women in his group. Most communists in an administration. Having a troll for a spouse.

Vertigo: It's More Than A Movie

Every once in awhile God throws a curveball my way. Lizzie headed out for San Antonio March 15 to help out with out new granddaughter so I had the condo all to myself. It wasn't two days after she left that I developed one of those dreaded chest and head sinus colds. For Lizzie it was a stroke of luck because she wouldn't have to listen to me go through those hard cough jags all night. Why is it we humans keep putting things off? Prior to my hip replacement of two years ago I prayed to every saint from the protector of German Shepherds to Our Lady of Lourdes to make me better. I'd throw holy water on the painful area everyday hoping for the big miracle. I detest knives, especially those that cut into my skin. Common sense finally prevailed and the magical fingers of my doctor did their work.
After three weeks of coughing my lungs out I made a trip to our local CVS and bought a bottle of the nighttime cough syrup. It worked.
My sickness decided three weeks was enough so it went on hiatus only to appear again another day, I'm sure. Even so, I still didn't feel up to snuff. I'd be at the golf course and didn't have much get up and go. You know the old story: "My get up and go got up and went".
Last Friday morning I had my semi-annual teeth cleaning and the dental assistant mentioned to me that I seemed sort of dehydrated. I let it slide since I'd consumed six cups of Joe before the visit. "Hydrated, Schmydrated", I thought.
On Friday evening Lizzie and I were preparing to to attend the play, "Godspell", with our neighbors. I'd eaten dinner early, around 3:30 PM and was lying on the couch when I spotted on the night stand next to me an entire bag of Dove's raspberry dark chocolate candy. "I'll have four or five", I thought. An hour later I started counting the wrappers and was amazed to come up with sixteen of those bad boys. I am the most compulsive person alive. At ten minutes to seven I got up off the couch, or tried to, anyway. I fell to the right and banged into a chair. I fell forward then backward. I fell down. My eyes were spinning and I couldn't focus. It was reminiscent of the world's biggest drunk except I haven't so much as had a beer in ten years. And do you know the first thing that entered my mind: I ate too many chocolates! At this point I was not the brightest bulb on the tree.
Regardless, because I'd sprung for the theater tickets I walked to our car to pick up our friends and a half hour later we were at the location. I was sweating like a mouse cornered by Tabby. I couldn't keep my eyes open but somehow I made it through the play. The smartest thing I did was let my friend drive home. As soon as I hit the house I stumbled upstairs and crashed. I don't upchuck often but when I do it's like water going over Niagara Falls. Thank God the toilet bowl took the brunt of, and you guessed it, the Dove's candy.
"Well, that's over with", said I. Except it wasn't. I had to do my man thing around 3AM. I don't usually mind this because I normally hit the head four or five times a night. The way I see it the more trips I make the more calories I burn. As I got out of bed I crashed into our patio window then the television stand. I fell to the floor and assumed the Tim Tebow position before I made it to the bathroom. "Hmmm! This is not good". Well, after returning to my bed I passed out until 10AM. Lizzie had some errands to do and called home at noon to see if I was alive.
I do not like hospitals. I detest hospitals. I know people who not only enjoy going to hospitals they even relish the thought of having operations just so they'll receive a card or flowers or, quite possibly, a gift.
"Lizzie", I said, "I think I need to go to the hospital".
If you're still hanging in there with me this is when it gets good. We went to the emergency entrance at the Dublin Hospital. Thank the Lord nobody was in the lobby. I later found out that if it had been a nice day outside instead of having arctic weather the emergency room would have been jammed. Are you ready for this? From the time I arrived at the information desk and transferred to a private room it took exactly two minutes. In the course of one and a half hours I had a background check done. I had blood taken. I was given a CAT scan and had chest X-rays. I was given meds. An Assistant's Physician and a real, not fake, doctor checked me out. I was as tired as Rip Van Winkle on his worst day and was allowed to sleep for two hours and when I awakened my television was on and tuned to Fox News. What an experience.
Try and tell me this sort of happening would occur under ObamaCare and if it would I'd kiss your rear end at downtown Columbus, Ohio at lunch time.
I thought I was having a stroke but as it turns out it was a case of vertigo. Before my friend told me about vertigo I thought it was something you were born with or the name of a Jimmy Stewart movie. I'm taking medicine and resting and as I understand I might be better in three days. I hope so because one of my dear friends from Racine, Wisconsin will be in town to play some golf.
My friend in Dublin had vertigo a month ago. One of the nurses said it might be developed from a virus and/or transmittable. I don't know how I got it but I do know this, 'it ain't fun'. If I'm going to act like a drunk I'd like to have a bottle of Jack to help me achieve it.

3. "Remember when the country rallied around you in hopes of a better tomorrow? That was hilarious."

4. "Democrats would like you to stick to your guns. And if you don't have any guns, you can ask Eric Holder to get some for you."

5. "They say diplomacy is a matter of carrot and sticks, and since Michelle Obama got to the White House — so is dinner."

6. Kimmel to New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie: "I think you're misunderstanding New Jersey's slogan. It's not the Olive Garden state."

7. "You'd recognize Jay Carney as the white guy from the LensCrafters commercial."

12. "Eric Cantor can’t be here tonight, he’s at the gym working on his gavel arm." (Cantor was, in fact, at the dinner.)

13. On Mitt Romney: "You can't have a beer with him, because he doesn't drink. You can't have a cup of coffee with him, because he can't have caffeine. You can't even play Monopoly with him because he keeps trying to put the dog on the car."

14. "It's great to see the Gingriches here, because that means the check cleared."

15. "Supercommittees are to committees what Supercuts are to hair cuts."

16. "I'd like everyone to look under their seats. You'll find a copy of Keith Olbermann's resume."

17. "It doesn't matter if you're black, like President Obama, or white, like President Obama, or red, like President Obama's agenda."

18. On those who want to attack Iran: "They're a bunch of yahoos, and Netanyahus."

Obama Overrides Congress: Sends $192 Million To Palestine

Right Scoop
Obama has gone around Congress again, this time to ensure that we financially support Israel’s enemy across the border. Yeah, Obama’s got their back:
Times of Israel – US President Barack Obama has lifted a ban on financial aid to the Palestinian Authority.
Obama stated that the aid was “important to the security interests of the United States.”
The US Congress froze a $192 million aid package to the Palestinian Authority after its president, Mahmoud Abbas, defied US pressure and sought to attain UN endorsement of Palestinian statehood last September. The presidential waiver means that aid can now be delivered. …

A Woman Scorned

A dentist pulled out all her ex-boyfriend’s teeth after he dumped her for another woman – who has now left him because he is toothless.
Anna Mackowiak, 34, is facing jail after taking her revenge on 45-year-old Marek Olszewski when he turned up at her surgery with toothache just days after breaking up with her.

She gave him a heavy dose of anaesthetic and plucked his teeth out.
She then wrapped his head and jaw in a bandage to stop him opening his mouth and said there had been complications and he would need to see a specialist.
The dentist, who works in Wroclaw, Poland, said: ‘I tried to be professional and detach myself from my emotions.
'But when I saw him lying there I just thought, "What a b******".'
Mr Olszewski said: 'I knew something was wrong because when I woke up I couldn’t feel any teeth and my jaw was strapped up with bandages.

Joe Biden: "He's A Beaut"

From The Washington Examiner:

Vice President Joe Biden jokingly berated campaign donors at a fundraiser this morning in Washington D.C.
“I guess what I’m trying to say without boring you too long at breakfast – and you all look dull as hell, I might add. The dullest audience I have ever spoken to. Just sitting there, staring at me. Pretend you like me!” he said according to the pool report.
The breakfast was held at the Fairfax Hotel with more than 200 members of the Turkish and Azerbaijani communities, according to the campaign. Tickets started at $2500, with all proceeds from the event going to the Obama Victory Fund.

Bin Laden: It Wasn't Obama's Call


Killing Bin Laden: Like so many others, the final decision to pull the trigger on the world's most-wanted man was delegated to an admiral who undoubtedly would have been thrown under the bus had the mission failed.
It's been almost a year since President Obama's leadership and foreign policy bona fides were allegedly established by the operation that killed Osama bin Laden. A campaign film narrated by Oscar-winning actor Tom Hanks tells of the president's alleged solitary, agonizing decision.
With apologies to Vice President Biden, maybe President Obama doesn't carry quite as big a stick as Joe would lead us to believe.
As reported by Big Peace, Time magazine has obtained a memo written by Leon Panetta, then-director of the Central Intelligence Agency and now-Secretary of Defense, that says "operational decision-making and control" was really in the hands of William McRaven, a three-star admiral and former Navy SEAL.

Bubba Clinton Tells A Whopper

Stiles -
Former President Bill Clinton appears in a new Obama campaign ad suggesting that Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney would not have ordered the raid that killed Osama bin Laden, even though Clinton himself repeatedly spurned opportunities to capture or kill the 9/11 mastermind.
Reuel Marc Gerecht, a senior fellow at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, told the Washington Free Beacon that Clinton’s appearance in the ad was “just astonishing.”
“It’s pretty preposterous to suggest that he ran an aggressive counter-terrorism shop,” Gerecht said of Clinton. “Far, far from it. The notion that President Clinton was focused on the issue, was aggressive on the issue and was willing to really put his presidency on the line to go after bin Laden is absurd.”
In a 2006 interview on Fox News Sunday, Clinton animatedly claimed he “worked hard to try to kill [bin Laden].”
The facts suggest otherwise.

Chicago: Students Told NRA Wants "Porch Monkeys" To Die

Jones College Prep, a Chicago Public Schools “selective enrollment” school, held “Social Justice Week” in March, a collection of events geared towards turning students into activists. [...]
On Wednesday of Social Justice Week, Black Star Project, a Chicago-based community organizing group, was brought into the school after school hours to teach students about “non-violent” protesting. Led by Phillip Jackson, former “Chief of Education” under former Mayor Richard Daley, the optional discussion was focused on students fighting back against gun crime.
Black Star Project, according to its website, is funded by Open Society Foundations (i.e. George Soros), Best Buy, ING and Toyota Motor Sales, among others.
But Jackson apparently had no interest in allowing students to come to their own conclusions on gun ownership.
Jackson’s co-presenter, Camille Williams of the Peace in the Hood movement, made several inflammatory statements about gun ownership and the National Rifle Association. She claimed the NRA is indifferent to gun violence. She also asserted she has received emails from the NRA and/or its members claiming she is “going to hell” for her advocacy and “these porch monkeys deserved to die,” referring to black children killed by guns.

Puttin On The Ritz

There's a YouTube going around called 'Puttin' on the Ritz-a Moscow variation'. It takes about five minutes to watch and is one of those flash dance videos that are so popular. I had forwarded it to the Council Bluffs Cowboy but he'd already seen it from a week ago(I don't know why I wasn't on his list to send to--guess he thinks I don't appreciate music). I was happy to see that it happened in the City of Moscow, Russia. We always have stereotypes of people 'not like us'. In this case, because these folks live in a communist country we think of them as droll, no fun, never smiling, fat babushka's looking for potatoes to make home made vodka. In reality, they smile, dance, and enjoy life as much as we. I emailed 'The Cowboy' and mentioned all this to him then concluded with; "people are the same wherever one goes. It's the politicians who screw things up for us". His only response was, "Correct".
If you haven't seen the YouTube google it because I still can't figure out, with this new blog program, how to link to this site. The video is  fun , snappy and took a lot of choreographing. Enjoy.

ObamaCare Lie #50,000

Des Moines Register) — A Des Moines woman who publicly thanked President Barack Obama on Tuesday for helping her obtain health insurance actually is receiving her coverage through a long-standing state program.
CeCe Ibson was asked to share her story as an introduction to a Michelle Obama speech Tuesday in Windsor Heights. She talked about losing her health insurance when she lost her job as a lawyer two years ago. She bought private coverage for her two children, she said, but could not find it for herself.
“No one would insure me because of my pre-existing conditions. No one. Until President Obama stood up for me and millions of Americans like me across Iowa and across the country,” she said.
In fact, Ibson’s current coverage is provided by HIP Iowa, a state program for people whose health problems make them ineligible for most commercial insurance. HIP Iowa was created in 1987, during Republican Terry Branstad’s first stint as governor. Most of the program’s subsidies come from fees paid by commercial insurers.

A Fund Raiser Every Three Days

Tony Harnden @ UK Daily Mail: President Barack Obama has already held more than twice as many re-election fundraising events than President George W. Bush did in his entire 2004 re-election campaign. According to Mark Knoller of CBS News, unofficial keeper of presidential statistics, Obama has held 124 fundraisers - about one every three days - since he launched his re-election bid last April compared to the 57 Bush held to raise cash for his re-election bid eight years ago Obama’s frenetic fundraising schedule had prompted the Republican National Committee (RNC) to lodge a formal complaint with the Government Accountability Office (GAO) about misuse of taxpayer money. Undignified: President Obama returns to the White House from trips to North Carolina, Colorado and Iowa. He is being accused of wasting tax payers' money on fundraising trips Obama speaks with a group of students at the University of Iowa: He is being accused of wasteful spending because he has held more than twice as many events than Bush did in 2004 The Obama campaign dismissed the complaint as a ‘stunt’ and the White House said that it would follow the same rules as previous administrations and refund the appropriate amounts. According to the Pentagon, the Boeing 747 that normally squires the President around costs $187,000 an hour.

Michelle's Spain Trip: A Paltry $470K

From Fox News: First lady Michelle Obama's 2010 trip to Spain cost taxpayers nearly $470,000, according to a conservative watchdog group that obtained Secret Service records from the overseas excursion. That trip, which the first lady took with her younger daughter Sasha, drew widespread criticism at the time -- as the visuals of the first lady in an elegant Mediterranean setting clashed with the still-struggling U.S. economy.

New Sharia Law In Egypt: It's About Necrophilia

My southern correspondent, Jude Rolfes, just sent me a note asking if I'd heard of a new law in Egypt saying men and women can have sex with their spouse-------up to six hours after their death. I don't know where to go with this. Normally grief, I think, doesn't cause arousal but I may be wrong since I've never done it before. If Egyptians can have sex with goats why not do the old lady even though she's about to go into rigor mortis. I can hear Mohammad now asking Shekil-Alwasari: "How was it"? The answer, "She just laid there stiff as a board" I took a clip out of a foreign news source but the story is all over the news sites if interested. News Site: "Talk about a grave mistake. Husbands in Egypt will soon be legally permitted to have sexual intercourse with their dead wives for up to six hours after their death. The controversial new “Farewell Intercourse Law” is part of a slew of measures being introduced by the Islamist-dominated parliament. It will also see the minimum age for marriage lowered to 14 and the elimination of women’s rights to education and employment. Egypt’s National Council for Women is protesting the changes, saying that “marginalizing and undermining the status of women would negatively affect the country’s human development.” The subject of a husband actually having sex with his dead wife came about in May of last year when Moroccan cleric Zamzami Abdul Bari said marriage remains valid, even after death. He added that women also have the right to have sex with her dead husbands'.

Chairman Of Oklahoma Dumbo Party Likens Tea Party To Tim McVeigh

'The chairman of the Oklahoma Democratic Party is refusing to back down from comments he made that likened convicted Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh to tea party activists. Chairman Wallace Collins, who last week told a Fox News reporter that if McVeigh were alive today he would likely be a member of the tea party, reiterated his position Tuesday. “I certainly stand by my remarks, because it's widely known that McVeigh was anti-government. I think that he was a right-winger, and I think the current tea party people, while I'm not saying that they're proposing violence, they're anti-government,” Collins said Tuesday". Do the Dems plan this stuff in a private room? Is it said when only news reporters are within shouting distance? How many Debbie Wasserman Schultz's are there?

It Must Be Fun To Be Clever

John Edwards

There's slime and then there's slime. I don't understand polling systems but they seem to be on spot quite a bit of the time. Our country functions by polling. Bill Clinton polled every single day--literally. There's an approval poll out on John Edwards. 97% of the American people have a very negative opinion of him. my question is, who are the moronic 3% who like him?

The Jimmy Fallon Show

Jimmy Fallon's TV show comes on right after Jay Leno. I stopped watching after his musician from the band Roots played the song, "Lyin Ass Bitch" as Michele Bachmann was introduced by Fallon. Last night our special president made and appearance. He did some 'slow jammin'. In other words, he's sucking up to young kids instead of presenting a message. Do you know why? He doesn't have one. Obama was at the U. of Iowa today talking about interest rates on college loans. That's called preaching to the choir. What will be his tune next week when he's with some old-timers and tries to explain away his plan to take away cash from Social Security and Medicare to pay for the college kids tuition? I am so tired of Obama's act; all sizzle and no steak.

EPA Official; Crucify Oil Companies The Way Romans Conquered Citizens

Sen. James Inhofe (R-OK) took to the Senate floor today to draw attention to a video of a top EPA official saying the EPA’s “philosophy” is to “crucify” and “make examples” of oil and gas companies - just as the Romans crucified random citizens in areas they conquered to ensure obedience. Inhofe quoted a little-watched video from 2010 of Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) official, Region VI Administrator Al Armendariz, admitting that EPA’s “general philosophy” is to “crucify” and “make examples” of oil and gas companies.

Taxpayers Spend $200 Million On Bankrupt Battery Company. It's Now Sold To The Russians

From The Washington Post: CHICAGO — Batteries made in America for America and backed by America. That's how politicians hailed Ener1. The company tapped the country's top scientists at Argonne National Lab in Illinois, and U.S. taxpayers pledged up to $118 million in federal stimulus funds and $80 million in state and local incentives to help Ener1 produce cutting-edge battery technology for electric cars and the U.S. military. "This is about the future. And the question is which nation is going to seize the future. Some nation is going to grab it by the throat. One of the nations of the world is going to lead the world in green energy and technology," Vice President Joe Biden said in January 2011 in a speech praising federal support for Ener1 at its facility in Indiana. That nation, in this case, is Russia. A little more than a year after Biden's visit to Ener1's Indiana manufacturing plant, the company is owned outright by Boris Zingarevich, a Russian businessman with ties to Russian President Dmitry Medvedev, a fact that concerns some technology experts in the U.S.

TSA Pats Down 8 Year Old With Cerebral Palsy: This Is Beyond Ridiculous

Security Administration is once again the subject of national scrutiny, this time after aggressively screening a 7-year-old female passenger with cerebral palsy which caused her family to miss their flight. The girl, identified as Dina Frank in a report by The Daily, was waiting with her family on Monday to board a flight departing from John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York headed to Florida. Since Dina walks with the aid of leg braces and crutches, she cannot pass through airport metal detectors, and must instead submit to a pat-down by TSA agents. Dina, who is also reportedly developmentally disabled, is usually frightened by the procedure. Her family reportedly requests that agents on hand take the time to introduce themselves to her.

Screwing With My Mind

Yesterday morning before golf I was feeling like a hipster dude. I had everything from linking to articles to putting in pictures with captions down pat on this blog site. Then along came some Bozo sending me a message telling me my blog site had been updated to make life easier for me. This guy doesn't know senior citizens. We like things to stay the same. It'd be like some young kid coming along and telling me, "I'm going to give you a new recipe for scrambled eggs" so from now on you have to make 'em this way. I'd have to tell him to "stay the hell out of my life". If you've scrolled down on some recent posts you won't find highlighted words linking to a source. There's a good reason for this. I don't know how to do it---yet. I'm asking myself, "where the heck is the spell check"? Now it's going to cost me money to find out. There's a kid--40--who is my computer guru at MicroCenter in Columbus. He gets me in and gets me out. He sets up my computer for me when it goes haywire or after I've stepped on the computer and shattered the screen while 3,000 miles from nowhere while at the lake. So I've got to put a halt on my busy scheduled day of napping and find my lad, Sean. I always tip him so there goes another 15 or 20 depending on th leength of my tutorial. If people who change sites would wise up they'd do it this way: over age 50 it stays the same. Under age 50, who cares?

The Soviets Called Them 'Collectives'

From The Daily Caller: A proposal from the Obama administration to prevent children from doing farm chores has drawn plenty of criticism from rural-district members of Congress. But now it’s attracting barbs from farm kids themselves. The Department of Labor is poised to put the finishing touches on a rule that would apply child-labor laws to children working on family farms, prohibiting them from performing a list of jobs on their own families’ land. Under the rules, children under 18 could no longer work “in the storing, marketing and transporting of farm product raw materials.” “Prohibited places of employment,” a Department press release read, “would include country grain elevators, grain bins, silos, feed lots, stockyards, livestock exchanges and livestock auctions.” The new regulations, first proposed August 31 by Labor Secretary Hilda Solis, would also revoke the government’s approval of safety training and certification taught by independent groups like 4-H and FFA, replacing them instead with a 90-hour federal government training course. Rossie Blinson, a 21-year-old college student from Buis Creek, N.C., told The Daily Caller that the federal government’s plan will do far more harm than good. “The main concern I have is that it would prevent kids from doing 4-H and FFA projects if they’re not at their parents’ house,” said Blinson

Trayvon In Reverse

From The American Thinker: Police have yet to charge a black motorist who shot dead a mentally disabled and unarmed "white Hispanic," Daniel Adkins, in a Taco Bell parking lot near Phoenix earlier this month. The two reportedly exchanged words before the shooting that occurred, according to some accounts, after the motorist almost ran over Adkins who then banged his fist on the car's windshield. The April 3 shooting by the 22-year-old black man -- whom police in suburban Laveen have yet to identify -- has gotten little if any coverage by the national media. Nor has President Obama weighed in on the case. Is it because Adkins doesn't look like his son? Whatever the case, the slaying of Adkins -- who was walking his yellow lab on a leash -- has ignited controversy in Arizona, and it has been commanding increasing attention in the blogosphere. Adkins' grieving family says he had the mental capacity of a 12 year old. He lived with his mom and dad. Local media outlets are describing Adkins as a Hispanic -- yet with an "Anglo" name and light complexion, he easily qualifies as what the national media have called a "white Hispanic" when describing George Zimmerman. Is this why the national media has yet to take an interest in the case?

Four Year Old Had Gun Says TSA

Of all the many complaints about airport security and the TSA, one of the most common is that they make little distinction between plausible security threats and passengers unlikely to be doing anything wrong. And a recent incident in Wichita, Kansas has reinforced that argument, as a four-year-old girl was apparently subjected to a humiliating ordeal after she hugged her grandmother while she was waiting in line. The girl was accused of having a gun and declared a 'high security threat', while agents threatened to shut down the whole airport if she could not be calmed down. The family was returning to their Montana home after attending a wedding in Kansas. It's another example of how people in this country, any country, don't care until after it's too late. This incident happened a month ago and the only reason MJH knew about it was because I read it in the UK Mail, a British newspaper. Wake up, America!

MJ Hawkeye Pageviews By Country

Did you take statistics in college? I didn't because I'd still be in the classroom. Some of my fraternity brothers did and they had nervous breakdowns. In looking at a map of the United States there has been MJH readership in every state. I wonder how the folks in Mumbai, India came across the site? Possibly in between charming cobras--or fixing some computer in the states. Personally, I could care less about any of this. At one time there were some readers in Indonesia. That's scary. They might have been Obama's relatives. It makes me happy to see Australia on the list. They drink a lot of Foster's beer. It's good stuff. I once won a prize, a t-shirt, on a cruiseship for drinking the most Foster's on a week long cruise. Lizzie was oh so happy for me. There were even 7 pageviews from Bulgaria. Can you believe I've had over two grand in Ruskie looks? Mostly they came in the winter months. It's called boredom.

Tale Of Two Plantations

Florida Man Mistakes Girlfriend For Hog, Shoots Her

A Florida couple was on a weekend camping trip that ended in an airlift to the emergency room. 52-year-old Steven Egan was hunting with his girlfriend Lisa Simmons in the northern part of the state when he mistook her for a hog and shot her. "He saw a hog and thought he shot it and went to look for it," Maj. Steve Clair of the Flagler County Sheriff's Office told ABC News. "He heard herand thought it was a hog and just shot." Lisa didn't go to hog heaven.

You Could Put Two Cue Balls In That Mouth

Utah's Love Looks To Be First Black Republican Woman In House

Mia Love, the Republican candidate in Utah’s 4th Congressional District, speaks at the Utah Republican Convention on Saturday in Sandy, Utah. “What makes America great is this idea that we are free - free to work, free to live, free to choose, and free to fail, because our failures make us better,” she said. Sooner or later, a black Republican woman was bound to run for Congress. It’s just that nobody expected her to hail from Utah. Mia Love won the GOP nomination for the 4th Congressional District race Saturday at the Utah Republican Convention, scoring a major upset after wowing the crowd with a roof-raising speech at the South Towne Expo Center in Sandy.

Understanding Play Dates

When did the term 'Play Date' come on the scene? It has the feeling of contrived friendship to me. Maybe it's something that came about when parent's became aware of bad people who roam the streets preying on little kids. I wanted to see my grandson last Saturday but was informed I should come later in the afternoon because he had a 'play date'. I never had one of those. We'd tell our parent's we were going over to Jude's to mess around. Sometimes we'd walk out the door with no plan at all and end up at Jude's. A guy could see all kinds of nifty things when he was eight or nine. You know these. Those distractions that made the ten minute walk into a forty minute one. Early on in the Fifties homes were being built at a record pace. Big shovels would come in and dig out a basement then leave the dirt piled high around the outside. I was a post World War II baby. I can't relate to the war because I wasn't born until five months after it ended. Even so, we learned and heard and knew about the Germans and the Japs. Know what was fun? Being at that newly dug home site and lying up next to a huge mound. Then grabbing a dirt clod about the size of a hand grenade and throwing it as far as was humanly possible for a kid my age. When the clod hit we'd make an explosian sound. I wiped out more Nazis that way. When I finally did arrive at Jude's we didn't have anything planned. Kid's today have on paper activities. We'd go outside and make do with whatever was around. Jude might say, "Wanna start a fire". I matter of factly answer, "okay", then we'd go into the alley, pile junk onto a heap and light it. At the end of our sixth grade year we threw in all of our books and papers we'd saved. If we found a dead bird we'd throw that on the fire, too. When I was six I lived across the alley from Tom Sellers. He was a couple of years older than I but he had neat stuff. His dad was in the war and afterwards became a policeman. It was a big deal to see a kid's dad wearing a pistol. Anyway, when his dad came home from the war he brought a couple of rifles and other souvenirs. Does anyone play war today? We did it all the time. It was always the Germans against the Americans. The nifty thing about being an American was you never died. If you were a German you knew you were going to get shot and when you were it was a big deal. The bullet(s) would pierce you body and you had to dramatically fall over tree stumps or wheelbarrows and at the end scream out in agony. But you were only dead for a few seconds because you knew the next time you were an American. Do kids on play dates play war? I think it'd be fun to wipe out twenty or thirty Taliban every day. Kids do a lot of art work today. The only time I did art was on Friday afternoon in school. I was a horrible artist but I knew a ton about world affairs. When I was in kindergarten I visited Sacred Heart. One of the nuns asked me a question about the Middle East. I promptly answered, 'Kalestine'. Pretty good for a five year old. Eveyone laughed. My art projects involved making a circle and calling it the earth. I'd make sure I'd put in the United States in a prominent position then off to the right I'd write, 'Red China'. Even in 1952 there was an awareness of the world. Maybe play date means an organized get together. In the old days we went out and played baseball. There wasn't an adult in site. We'd play football in Mike Culver's back yard. If it was only the two of us we'd play slow-motion football. That was exactly what it was. One guy ran in slo-mo and the other had to touch him doing the same method. While I'm on the subject of Mike Culver: He lived on a lot right next to the Chicago and Northwestern railroad tracks. There must have been thirty trains go by his house on a daily basis. Never once can I remember his mom, Fern, saying, "don't go near the trains". Shoot! As soon as one came by we'd grab rocks and throw them at freight cars but only to practice our baseball pitching motion. When I was a kid a had a zillion pets. I had chickens until I got tired of them then lopped off their heads and cleaned 'em for dinner. I had rabbits but, SOMEHOW, one got in a cage with another and, SOMEHOW, little baby rabbits came along. I had more dogs that a kennel. Today kids are allergic to most mammals so they get a fish. When I was young fish were called, 'bait'. That's about it for this jaunt down memory lane. It's fun for me. I hope my grandkids look back with the same good memories even though they might have to say, "Tommy, remember that time we had a play date"? Sounds silly, doesn't it?

Trumka Makes 8 Times As Much As Average Worker


Known thug, Richard Trumka, president of the AFl-CIO brought home a gross salary of $264,827 in 2010, plus another $18,513 in additional compensation, to represent his union. The union leader has earned well over $200,000 every year since he was promoted to Secretary Treasurer in 2003. You remember Trumka from his co-appearance with Pres. Obama last year. While on a stage he said that we(AFL-CIO) need to take the son of a bitches out(Tea Party). That statement must have gone unheard of by Obama because he let it pass withot saying anything.

But If The GOP Suggests Reform They're Called Heartless



Medicare and Social Security, the nation's two largest programs, have long-term deficits of $63.3 trillion, according to annual reports from the programs' trustees released today. The reports underscore the dire need to reform the programs if the nation wants to avert a fiscal crisis.

Google Books Lists Bill Ayers As Author Of Dreams from My Father

Google, which sits atop more data than anybody outside the NSA, is presenting Bill Ayers as the author of Barack Obama's purported first autobiography, Dreams from My Father. Follow this link and see it while you can. If it is gone by the time you read this, a screen shot of the page, and a close-up on the Dreams entry are provided for posterity.

"I said Pepperoni Not Puperoni"


The dog caper stories involving Romney and Obama haven't given me much of a writin' bug but I did catch one snippet of info I found interesting and it's from Obama's autobiography. Most all of us know that most everything contained in Dreams From My Father is bogus but there is a tidbit that caught my eye:

ONE MORE THING: Muslims don’t eat dogs. Barack Obama lived with a Muslim stepfather in a Muslim area of Indonesia. Dogs were not eaten there; presumably not in Obama’s Muslim household. So Obama’s claim in his autobiography that he ate dog in Indonesia may well be false–an error introduced by Bill Ayers or whoever actually wrote Obama’s autobiography. But it is way too late now for Obama to disavow the autobiography that he allegedly wrote.

How Three Boys Became Three Doctors


They grew up in Newark, New Jersey without father's. When they were in their early teans someone planted a bug about succeeding and staying out of trouble. They had mother's who worked two and three jobs to make sure they could go to college. Others, like the police and family members, made sure they were safe while on the streets of one of our worst cities. Nowhere in this article will you find mention of how they wouldn't have made it without the government being the impetus behind their success.

Great News For U.S. Taxpayer

Hallelujah! The U.S taxpayers are going to be nailed for $1.5 million so investigators can shoot on down to Cartgena and do further investigations in their never ending quest to interview hookers and other persons of interest. My question is, "what're they going to do in their free time"?

Oreo: The Breakfast Of Champions


Kraft Foods is in big trouble because, somehow, this ad was released uncensored. If we lived in Sweden no one would give it a thought. Personally, I belive it to be a clever promotion. Here's another example of how I'm aging. When I first looked at the picture I only saw the cookie then said to myself, "I need to go to the grocery store".

Thomas Roberts: Check Out This MSNBC Genius


From: 'The Powers That Be':

NASCAR drivers, not unlike MSNBC hosts, get moving that fast by leaning forward:
NASCAR Chairman and CEO Brian France was a guest on MSNBC on Thursday to talk about the sport’s green initiatives in advance of Earth Day.
France was asked several questions about NASCAR’s environmental push by anchor Thomas Roberts, who apparently thinks race cars are actually fighter jets.
“The obvious draw for NASCAR is the speed,” Roberts said to France. “Cars going up to about 500 mph, right?”
And these are the people who are going to spend the next 200 days calling Romney out of touch?
France didn’t respond to the 500 mph claim, but I would have replied, “Yes, Thomas, and by going 500 miles per hour we get the race over a lot faster, thus sparing the environment unnecessary pollution. We’re Al Gore approved!”

Extra credit question for Thomas Roberts: Assuming the cars go 500 miles per hour, why does it take several hours to complete the Daytona 500'?


The irritating aspect of the entire story is these people actually make big money for being ignorant.

Election Of '08: Proof Positive Dems Stuffed Ballot Boxes In Ohio, Pennsylvania

John McCain knew of the shenanigans that led to ballot box stuffing in the major inner cities in '08 but decided not to make a fuss. This time around there had better be 'cops on the street' to keep things in order. As our President said, "If they bring a knife we bring a gun".

Three and eleven is not a good way to start a baseball season. My Cubs may set an all-time record for futility; maybe even worse that them Amazin' Mets under Casey Stengel. I'm waiting for the barrage of Cub jokes. Winning one game would be a hot streak. I believe we're going to have the opportunity to test out my theory. Wrigley Field is a 'happening'. If, by September, the Cubs record is ten wins and 132 losses will the stands still be jammed with paying customers? I say, "yes".

Jon Corzine Still An Obama Bundler; Should Be In Jail


Jon Corzine, according to the Obama campaign, has once again helped raise more than $500,000.

(He was likewise named a bundler in January, when the Obama campaign last released the names of their money men.)

"MF Global and its brokerage sought Chapter 11 bankruptcy after a $6.3 billion bet on the bonds of some of Europe’s most indebted nations prompted regulator concerns and a credit rating downgrade. Corzine quit MF Global Nov. 4," Bloomberg reported.

As ABC reported, "President Obama once hailed [Corzine] as an 'honorable man' and one of his 'best partners' in the White House." Since that time, Obama has tried to distance himself from Corzine, who at one point was considered for the treasury secretary slot.

But apparently Obama is still willing to use campaign funds from the embattled Corzine.

An Uninteded Consequence Of ObamaCare

Edward Morrisey of the Fiscal Times asked in a recent column if the current Administration has thought through their threats to force religious healthcare providers to offer insurance that covers all services, even if those services run contrary to religious beliefs. For example, if Catholic bishops decide to close charitable operations rather than compromise their beliefs, the impact would be greatest on those most in need:
•The loss of $100 billion in healthcare costs now covered by church hospitals
•The loss of one-seventh of all U.S. hospital beds, about 120,000 existing beds
•The loss of more than 400 health center s and 1,500 specialized homes
•The loss of more than 500,000 jobs

Government-run health care might win, but many of these facilities provide care to the poor, especially the urban poor, and those in rural areas who have limited healthcare options.

This is one more way ObamaCare is a disaster for an already fragile economy and an over-burdened healthcare system!

When Did He Go Goofy

Here's the deal. I rejoined a golf club from five years ago. Long story short; my other club was too expensive and this one is a bargain. I've met a couple of guys who have become regulars with me and one, in particular, is an almost daily partner. He's 39 years old and kind of out of a job. He has a wife who works and there are two small kids at home. I had made a comment about our dorky leader a week ago and received no feedback so I had to assume he swings the other way politically. I was correct. We had a four hole conversation about Libs and conservatives today. Finally I asked him, "What is it about liberals that makes you keep voting for them What's the appeal"? His response caused an immediate upchuck. He told me that liberals are more compassionate. In other words, they feel our pain. That was a Bill Clinton response so you know it's a crock of crap. As of now I'm considering myself this kid's surrogate dad. I'm going to make it my goal to straighten him out. I'll no doubt be subtle with him as I always am---for awhile. Then I'll crush his skull with a sledge if he doesn't get his act together.
This isn't an earth shattering post. I wanted you to know that I did, against my promises, play golf with a democrat today. I am a very nice person.

Barack Obama Is Not A Nice Guy


Two weeks ago I wrote about a lady in my howetown who, while watching Obama on TV, turned to me and said, "Isn't he just the nicest guy"? My eyes filled with blood at that notion. "No, he's a ruthless communist", I stated. One of my favorite wrtiters, Michelle Malkin, has written a very nice piece for National Review explaining just how hateful this man can be; in both words and actions.

Tiger's And Weiner's And Spitzer's, Oh My

The scandal mags are all juiced up with the photos of the main hooker sought out by the Secret Service agents in Colombia. I've decided not to put her picture on the site because she looks like any other great looking girl who gets paid to have her body used by someone else. If you want to see her you have two options: (1) click on the highlighted word or (2) look at pics of Tiger Wood's and Eliot Spritzer's strumpets. For the life of me I don't understand the concept of paying money for something that seems so natural. I also don't understand how a young lady, a 24 year old single mom who looks this good, can sell her body to the highest bidder but that's just me.

Ann Coulter: 'Negroes With Guns'

MJ Hawkeye Has Loyal Followers

Every so often I'll take a glance at those courageous souls who put their name, real or otherwise, as faithful readers of this blog. Most of them, seventeen or so, have been there for months and I thank them for their loyalty. There has to be something I offer that fished them in and has kept them interested. Most of them I know already but there a few with whom I have had no personal contact nor probably ever will. That's too bad but I think I can rectify this situation and I'll explain how later. If you take a peek you'll see three football helmet icons. I like sports though I'm not as immersed in it as I was when I coaching. As a matter of fact I've been working on a piece about how winning is not important in this country, anymore. To me, winning may not be the most important thing in the world but it damned sure beats whatever comes in second.
Four folks have come on board in the last week: one is Dkmastr. I tried to pronounce it phonetically but it didn't sound right. Dr. Rock 29 also signed up. What's his story? I'd sure like to know. A man named Michael also jumped on ship. That's nice. Michael has been a favorite name of mine for sixty-six years. It's always been my call to dinner. When I clicked on these three icons there wasn't a lot of personal info and, being that I'm a computer klutz, I got frustrated trying to figure out how to send them a message. I think it's a possible--maybe--could be--but I don't know how--so I gave up. Finally, I clicked on Dogger. With him I got some personal info. How could a man from Orange County, California find MJ Hawkeye in Ohio? I checked him out and found out that he's a christian. I like that. It's better than being on Bill Maher's list of favorites and having 'atheist' listed. Or having a person write: My two favorite journals are MJ Hawkeye and Out Magazine. Dogger was in the armed forces and loves the country. Already we're pals and we've never met. This is what I know about Orange County or assumed I did. I thought is was economically upper crust but now maybe not so. I know that one of my all-time favorite congressman, B-1 Bob Dornan represented the good citizens. Oh, how I loved to watch him on C-Span doing Special Orders ripping Bill Clinton apart. Now we, or the people of Orange County, have to put up with Loretta Sanchez. I ask Mr. Dogger, can she still not count to ten?
I made a dear friend off of these postings and bloggings two years ago. He's the (in)famous Council Bluffs Cowboy. We email each other daily and he's as witty and smart as Will Rogers but much prettier.
I've recently re-connected with a lovely person from my Class of '64 in Boone, Ioway. The poor lady lives in Madison, Wisconsin. Try being a conservative in Madison. That's like being 'cute' in a men's prison. A month ago she sent an email saying how much she enjoyed this blog. Well, I wondered how she got my email since I haven't spoken to her since our high school graduation night when John 'Cowboy' Hammond lit a cherry bomb as we were about to receive our diplomas. Sadly, John missed out on his sheepskin by about thirty seconds but you know that story already. Anyway, she contacted one of my listed favorites, Dan Cirucci, at Penn State U. and he gave it to her. Small world. BTW, if you check out the other favorite blog of mine it's my son's in KC. If you like beer give it a look see. He's clever and funny and he makes good beer.
So, now that I'm at the end of this, if any of my loyal reader's wish to contact me personally my e-mail address is: mjloehrer@hotmail.com. If Ann Coulter can lay her email out to the public then what do I have to worry about?
Who knows, you might invite me out to your place and if it's to my liking I might come. Or, Dublin, Ohio is a nifty place to visit, too.
Thanks, everyone, for your many kindnesses.

Now Do You Understand The Problem



Since I'd never visited the Quaker State(Pennsylvania) until I was forty I thought there might be a couple of reader's who haven't done the same. Pennsylvania is composed of 44,000square miles. That's the same as Ohio. In comparison, Iowa has 55,000 squares miles. My friends in Wisconsin didn't believe me when I told them Ohio had a land mass much smaller than the Badger state. But they, like me, are physical education majors so they get a pass. How many people know the land mass of Alaska is 586,000 square miles? Hold onto your proverbial hats but that's greater than Iowa, Ohio and Pennsylvania combined. The purpose of this exercise is to look at the typical voting bloc of Pennsylvania. The color blue denotes the liberal regions. Gray is either/or and the Red is Republican. In this instance the Dumbs are in Pittsburgh, Erie, Scranton and Wilkes-Barre plus Philadelphia. They vote entitlements while the rest of the folks vote American. Now you can understand the problem when it comes to cities that are in debt up to their collective scrotum's and the others who pay their own way. Frustrating isn't it?

It's About Time: Bishop Compares Obama To Stalin & Hitler

I’m sure a great many of our Catholic clergy were not thrilled with Obama back in 2008, but too few of them spoke out.

Thanks to Obama’s War on Religion, those days are over…

Via Washington Examiner:


In a homily delivered Saturday, Bishop Daniel R. Jenky of the Diocese of Peoria, Illinois challenged President Obama’s HHS mandate, suggesting that the president was following the same path as Hitler and Stalin.

“Hitler and Stalin, at their better moments, would just barely tolerate some churches remaining open, but would not tolerate any competition with the state in education, social services, and health care,” Jenky said. “In clear violation of our First Amendment rights, Barack Obama – with his radical, pro abortion and extreme secularist agenda, now seems intent on following a similar path.” Jenky added.

I’d like to see more Priests and Bishops speaking out, but Obama will not be getting anywhere near the majority of the Catholic vote in 2012.

Thank God.

Criminals For Obama


It's not often I take a forward from my computer and put it on this blog. I received one today from a buddy in East Troy, Wisconsin that's been around the block a couple of times and it's worth repeating. It's difficult not to notice the line-up of characters all wearing their Obama clothing. The point of this photo being, have you ever seen some dude with a mug shot sporting a George Bush t-shirt? How about his dad or Bob Dole? The chances of this occurring are about the same as seeing Charles Manson with a Ronald Reagan campaign button on his orange jump suit.

The Least Newsworthy Item Of The Year


I'll be upfront with this story. It's a nothing one. A British airport worker, akin to a TSA agent, put the squeeze, aka hands, on Bar Rafaeli. This stuff happens every day and, as you already know, I'm a lesbian in a man's body, so in the big picture of life this is a blip on the screen. There's only one reason for this post: Bar looks very, very good.


"Supermodel Bar Refaeli claims she feels violated after a screening by a female airport security worker in London this morning … saying the incident “left no doubt about her sexual preferences.”

Bar — who didn’t specify which airport she was at — just vented about the incident on Twitter … saying, “I got a security ‘patdown’ by a woman at the airport that made me feel very uncomfortable and left no doubt about her sexual preferences.”

Another Obama Gaffe Goes Uncovered By The MSM

OK, picture this: President George W. Bush, he of the cast-iron Texas tongue, at a news conference concluding an international summit.

He's asked about a dispute involving Argentina and Great Britain, our closest overseas ally, the one that's lost 408 soldiers by our side in Afghanistan, where we've fought a decade together to prevent a second 9/11.

In his answer, Bush refers to the disputed territory by the wrong name, misplacing the islands by some 8,000 miles. Worse than his geographic ignorance, instead of backing Britain, whose prime minister he just buddy-buddied at an NCAA game and White House state dinner, Bush says, Well, that's not really something he thinks the United States would take sides on.

Britain?

Or Argentina?

Seriously?

Do you think there might be some prolonged outraged news coverage back home about the latest Bush blunder, this time a two-fer

The Queen Returns

Has it been a month already since The Queen left for San Antonio? Yessiree Bob!(Howdy Doody Show) She returns tonight around 8 after being re-routed from St. Loo to Denver? Do you remember the famous baked potato diet? It must have worked because I've put on 3 lbs. That's like saying, "I have to start smoking because my doctor says I'm not getting enough tar".
Here's the thing about Lizzie or myself coming home after a visit away. We have a night time tradition that's carried over the years and it happens as soon as we hit the bed. Now stop it, already! Whoever is home is responsible for having clean sheets and pillow cases on the bed. Trust me when I say at our age it supercedes sex. I don't know how often Lizzie changes sheets on a regular basis. Is a month too long? I also set a record for not making the bed. What's the point. I'd only mess it up the next night. If I wanted a made bed every night I'd get a room at a Super 8.
There is a method to my cleaning process. I always 'almost' perfectly clean. It's important to leave a slight mess only to make the wife feel she's really needed. It took 43 years but I'm starting to get the hang of this marriage deal.

P.S. She's here and ol' MJ received the compliment of all compliments on the condition of the condo when She walked in: "Hey, the house doesn't stink". Life is good.

36 Obama Aides Owe $833,000 In back Taxes

How embarrassing this must be for President Obama, whose major speech theme so far this campaign season has been that every single American, no matter how rich, should pay their "fair share" of taxes.

Because how unfair -- indeed, un-American -- it is for an office worker like, say, Warren Buffet's secretary to dutifully pay her taxes, while some well-to-do people with better educations and higher incomes end up paying a much smaller tax rate.

Or, worse, skipping their taxes altogether.

A new report just out from the Internal Revenue Service reveals that 36 of President Obama's executive office staff owe the country $833,970 in back taxes. These people working for Mr. Fair Share apparently haven't paid any share, let alone their fair share

New Test For Alzheimer's

I can't think of anything worse than being diagnosed with onset dementia or Alzheimer's. Except for pancreatic and multiple myaloma most every other cancer at least gives a person a fighting chance. One of my parent's has dementia and it's not only a pain to visit but it's also a tedious exercise. It's my hope she's comfortable. I've told Lizzie that when(if) I get this way to throw me down an elevator shaft. Now, there's something to get excited about. The Brits say they have come up with testing to determine the beginning of Alzheimer's and, hopefully, a drug to eradicate this insidious disease.


"A BREAKTHROUGH in the fight against Alzheimer’s could pave the way to early diagnosis years before the devastating symptoms appear.
Scientists are hailing a new test which detects changes in the brain that can help to identify those people who are likely to go on to develop the disease.
Potential sufferers could be spotted and treated early, delaying the onset of the illness by years and allowing what few remedies are available to minimise its effects".

Happy Birthday To Bo


Bo is the one in front


What has to be a first in the annals of campaigning the Obama's want you to wish a happy third birthday to their dog, Bo, by donating to our leader's campaign. Starting best wishes begin at $10.

Bob Beckel Directs F Bomb At Lady On Live TV



From Newsbusters.com:

Fox News contributor and former Democratic strategist Bob Beckel directed an F-bomb at female Tea Party activist Jennifer Stefano during Monday’s Hannity.

The two were arguing through a commercial break, and Beckel apparently didn’t know they were back live when he made his indelicate remark (video follows with transcribed highlights and commentary):

“If you say that Head Start is a failure, you don't know what the f—k you’re talking about,” exclaimed Beckel as the program came back from commercial.

“It is a failure,” responded Stefano who also happens to be the Pennsylvania state director for Americans for Prosperity.

Hannity interrupted, “Whoa, bleep. What are you doing?”

Stefano needed to get in the last word saying just, “Failure.”

Beckel responded, “I just can’t stand right-wingers. They’ve just got their mouths running all the time.”

Hannity then asked Beckel to apologize. He initially refused until Hannity made him understand that he said that on live television.

“I try to put signs up and help you,” Hannity told Beckel who has a history of losing control of his tongue.

Beckel finally acquiesced saying, “I’m sorry about using that foul word, yes. But the intent about it is still there.”

“And you should run your show a little better,” he continued, “instead of having me get caught like that.”

“Now you’re blaming me for this,” exclaimed Hannity.

“Typical liberal,” added Stefano. “No personal responsibility."

“You’re like Obama – you’re blaming me,” joked Hannity.

This led conservative talk radio host Neal Boortz to comment, “This thing about me guesting on The Five? Maybe I’d better rethink that.”

For his part, Beckel has already apologized on Twitter saying, "I apologize to anyone who heard me on Hannity. I honestly thought we were off air. I just may not be cut out for the tv business. Peace."

Oh those nutty liberals.

The Buffett Rule

Do you know what the Buffett Rule is? If you don't if doesn't matter because it failed to pass in the Senate today. If passed it would have resulted in adding $47 billion to the government coffers over a ten year period. That's about how much we spend in one morning---every single day.
One more thing: the tax would have doubled the capital gains tax to 30%. I'm being somewhat selfish here but years ago, anticipating old age, I sort of thought after I retired my investements would help cover needed expenses. Lizzie and I planned ahead. Capital gains taxes hurt retirees but it's evident the Obama administration could care less about us geezers.

DOJ Trying To Put Gibson Guitar Out Of Business

For starters maybe the reason is because Gibson, unlike Martin Guitar's, is non-union

It’s been almost 3 years since the first raid in 2009 and almost a year since the 2011 raid of Gibson Guitars by the DOJ, yet Gibson says they are still waiting on the DOJ to charge them. The CEO of Gibson, Henry Juszkiewicz, says the feds have taken aggressive action against his company that has hurt them severely, and now he worries about the long-term damage to their company.

Fox News’ reported on this last year revealed that the feds wouldn’t have targeted Gibson had the imported wood been a completed fretboard, leading Gibson to believe that the Obama administration is simply tried to force American jobs overseas. They also reported that other guitar manufacturers who import the same wood had not yet been targeted by the DOJ, perhaps because their CEOs weren’t Republicans who have donated heavily to Republicans, like Henry Juskiewicz.

Rock On, Hilly


Wow! There are boo coup photos of Hillary in a Cartegena bistro downin' the suds and doing some kind of hip grind. The accompanying photo, which I'm sure was taken on an airplane, means the party must have had a conga line to the airport. She has a glass of something in her hand, might be scotch, while a young stud behind her is moving in for rub rub. I'd tell that boy to settle down unless he wants to wake up in the morning trying to gnaw his arm off. One thing's for sure; after the shenanigans with the secret service, armed forces and our state department Colombia might be the place to visit. I'm happy our dime let them all have a fun time.

Have You Lost Your Dog

My telephone rang this afternoon. I always look to see who's calling. If it's my former college the phone rings as many times as it can. If it's a golfing friend I click on before ring number one has ended. Know what I saw on my phone screen this afternoon? It read 'lost doggie'. It was a taped message along the lines of an Amber Alert and more info can be found at lostdoggie.com. I've never heard of such a thing before. The recorded message was designed for my neighborhood, telling when the pooch turned up missing and gave it's coloring and breed. It was a Chihuahua and it's been gone for a week. If I were the owner and not embarrassed to let people know I owned a floor mop for a pet I think I'd give up. Just two nights ago I saw a fox sprint across the field behind us. There are birds that fly above our condo, sometimes high and sometimes swooping. We call them hawks. If I were the owners I'd say a rosary for their rodent and move on. The dog's name was Lucky.

Bill Maher: The Gift Who Keeps On Giving

Oh goodie, another firestorm from the Left. Bill Maher is the dude who this time, referring to Ann Romney said, "She's never had her ass out of the house". Nice! Will Obama return his million dollar gift from Maher for his PAC? I don't know but when libs get frustrated they turn to dark humor, foul mouths and vile talk. Keep it up. It's at times like this I wish for my liberal family members to tell me how they respect their leaders: Jackson, Sharpton, Maher, Maxine Waters and the Congressional Black Congress, Keith Olbermann. It's a never ending list. And as long as I'm on the subject how is it women on the right don't get in the gutter? The closest we come is Coulter but she only exposes the foibles of the left. Laura Ingraham? Would never happen. Barbara Bush, Laura Bush and Ann Romney; they are something the progs don't have---manners.

This Is Obama's 99%: "Shout All Pigs Must Die"


In the East Village of NYC over the week-end these people, after attending an Anarchists book fair, decided to show their displeasure for the Establishment by taking to a Starbuck's. We can expect more of this as the summer moves on. Remember: It was the leftist members of Congress who came out in support of this scum.
I don't think this is going to play well in Fargo, North Dakota, Biloxi, Mississippi or Boone, Iowa.

Even In Jest, Not A Smart Thing To Say

CNSNews.com) - "Just two days after President Barack Obama gave a sharply edged response to news anchor Larry Conners of KMOV in St. Louis after Conners had asked the president about Americans who “get frustrated and even angered when they see the first family jetting around [to] different vacations and so forth,” Obama told a panel at the Summit of the Americas in Cartagena, Colombia that part of his job there was to scout out locations for a future vacation with First Lady Michelle Obama".

The guy is 100% clueless.

Infrastructure Jobs In US Go To ChiComs

Here's a story that will blow your mind and it comes to us from the perky and sometimes obnoxious, Diane Sawyer. Obama's stimulus cash has been used to spend billions on jobs on in the US but the administration has hired the Chinese to come over here and build. Not much comment, as of yet, from the union thugs.

A Girl You Might Not Want To Take Home To Mom


If you're driving a stolen vehicle and are "not trying to go to jail," it's best to keep a low profile. You shouldn't do anything to draw attention yourself. You certainly shouldn't pull over and drop a number two on the side of one of Florida's busiest highways. Basically, don't be Mellisa Mansfield.

Tough Questions

How would you like to be on the jury for the George Zimmerman trial? How would you like to be a juror and find him not guilty? Can jurors be sent to the witness protection program?

Were You One Of These



My high school era of the early Sixties was fairly benign when it came to attire. We were very laid back and didn't bring a lot of attention to ourselves. For my Prom Night I wore a snazzy tuxedo; searsucker black and white striped and black slacks with the standard patent leather shoes. My date looked outstanding. She slinked into a red, form fitting gown that went to the floor. We looked very, very good together.
When I began teaching in 1968 the faculty were sometimes forced to chaperon Prom. It seems I always came up with some kind of excuse to get out of it. I thought it was interesting how prom clothing changed from my era through my teaching years; twenty in all. First off, a guy's hairstyle went from standard to bizarre. For some reason I was at my sweet cousins home in Milwaukee around 1976 when her prom date picked her up. I sat back and looked at him as he arrived at the front door and thought, "if she were my daughter I'd lock her in the closet".
Getting to the point of this post I was looking at Yahoo. They posted some of the most 'embarrassing prom photos' of years gone by.
My thought(s) was I wonder what their kids thought of mom of and dad now.
Go ahead and give yourselves a chuckle. Who knows, maybe one of these is you.

$300 Million Of Job Stimulus Funds Went To Korea

I don’t know if I should laugh, or be pissed off about this. The Obama stimulus bill has been an epic failure. Nearly a trillion in tax payer dollars has been flushed down the toilet. There have been a ton of examples of what a waste the stimulus has been. Anywhere from Solyndra to millions wasted to study cow farts. Now comes word from CBS that $300 million of your tax payer dollars from Obama’s failed stimulus went to two electric battery plants in Michigan. Using that $300, the plants bought equipment and hired workers from Korea, not America. The only reason why I snicker at this is that Obama’s union thug pals are pissed off over this.

Does Obama Get Credit For This Maneuver

Ask any member of the current administration and they'll let you know that Barack Obama personally took down Osama bin Laden. It was his skill and brain power used at the appropriate time to personally destroy the greatest mass murderer in modern times.
Fast forward to Columbia and the present scandal involving the Secret Service plus some alleged members of the Armed Forces. What's wrong with a boys night out now and then? Apparently, some of our finest were caught up in some prostitute shenanigans. Let me say this: If Obama rescinds his, "I got bin Laden" talk I'll give him a pass on the prostitue problem. If not, he can hang this escapade around his neck.

As long as we're on the subject of the Secret Service it was divulged yesterday that Joe Biden received an income last year of $21,000 from the SS. They rented a condo on his property. That's a nice gig if you can get it. Here's another nugget of info. A few days ago I was wondering where Joltin' Joe's charitable giving of $5,000 went. It just so happens I found it. Mr. Charitable and Dr. Jill Biden should pat themselves on the back, especially for the $50 they gave to the Wounded Warriors. You churchgoers can also be smug. They gave $1,000 to their church---for the year.

"Of course, the Bidens badly need the money. They only had an adjusted gross income of $379,035 last year. This probably also explains why they gave less than 1.5 percent of their income to charity.

Among the $5,540 in charitable donations were $1,000 to the UN World Food Program; $1,080 to the Northern Virginia Community College Alumni Scholarship Fund; $1,000 to the Diocese of Wilmington; Delaware; $360 to a breast health initiative launched by Dr. Jill Biden; and $50 to the Wounded Warrior Project".

Greatest Obituary Ever

From The Daily Caller:

Michael “Flathead” Blanchard, a Colorado citizen and community activist, died this week at the age of 68 — but we sure wish we could have known him when he was alive.

Blanchard’s obituary in the Denver Post is probably the greatest thing you will read all day:

“Mike wanted it known that he died as a result of being stubborn, refusing to follow doctors’ orders and raising hell for more than six decades. He enjoyed booze, guns, cars and younger women until the day he died.” The obit continues to say that Blanchard was an avid Republican and NRA member.

He also takes jabs at some of his former friends from the grave: “So many of [Blanchard's] childhood friends that weren’t killed in Vietnam went on to become criminals, prostitutes and/or Democrats. He asks that you stop by and re-tell the stories he can no longer tell.”

The last line of the obituary reads: “As the Celebration will contain Adult material we respectfully ask that no children under 18 attend.”

If you are in the area on April 14, stop by 8160 Rosemary Street in Commerce City at 3 p.m. to celebrate Flathead’s life. It is sure to be a good time.

American Federation Of Teachers Hires Socialist To Lead Them

The AFT has hired a Socialist, Shaun Richman, who is also a Truther and Osama bin Laden apologist. [Sorry, but I think that he needs psychological help with that mindset.] Shaun Richman, the new deputy director of organizing for the AFT, gained his experience organizing for the Socialist Party USA.
