On Vacation

There's almost nothing better than the Memorial Golf Tournament in Dublin, Ohio. It has the atmosphere of Derby week in Louisville; friends are made as people walk by your home on their way to the tourney. I'll invite them in for a beer or soda and to sit on the patio. This happened with me three years ago with a couple from western Ohio who visit each year. When I write 'almost nothing better' in this case it's different. Three of my long time friends from Wisconsin are here to visit for the week. They are all former football coaches and when we get together it's lights out on the fun. One would have to be a member of the coaching fraternity to appreciate how utterly ridiculous, silly, funny and insensitive we can be to each other. It's a constant pimp session. We'll play some golf and when we do the needle is dug a little deeper on each errant shot. There is nothing more fun than being around my pals.
So, and this is a promise, I will not touch this keypad until this coming Friday at the earliest. I can hardly wait for the hilarity to begin.
The Memorial golf tournament at Muirfield Village. It's the place to be.

Liberal War On Women

Women working for Senate Democrats in 2011 pulled in an average salary of $60,877. Men made about $6,500 more.
While the gap is significant, it is slightly smaller than that of the White House, which pays men about $10,000, or 13 percent, more on average, according to a previous Free Beacon analysis.
The pay differential is quite striking in some cases, especially among leading Democrats. Sen. Chuck Schumer (D., N.Y.), who runs the Senate Democratic messaging operation, paid men $19,454 more on average, a 36 percent difference.
Majority Whip Dick Durbin (D., Ill.) paid men $13,063 more, a difference of 23 percent.
Other notable Senators whose “gender pay gap” was larger than 23 percent:
  • Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.)—47.6 percent
  • Sen. Jeff Bingaman (D., N.M.)—40 percent
  • Sen. Jon Tester (D., Mont.)—34.2 percent
  • Sen. Ben Cardin (D., Md.)—31.5 percent
  • Sen. Tom Carper (D., Del.)—30.4 percent
  • Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D., Minn.)–29.7 percent
  • Sen. Kent Conrad (D., N.D.)–29.2 percent
  • Sen. Bill Nelson (D., Fla.)—26.5 percent
  • Sen. Ron Wyden (D., Ore)—26.4 percent
  • Sen. Tom Harkin (D., Iowa)—23.2 percent

Pt. III 1001 Reasons To Vote Against Obama

The third installment of just over one hundred reasons:
  1. President Obama’s signature program, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), referred to colloquially as “Obamacare,” was signed into law in March 2010. According to CNN, public opposition at the time was 59%, or nearly six out of ten adults surveyed. All Republicans in the House and Senate opposed and voted against the passage of the bill.
  2. When Republicans were opposed to the bill and the possibility of a filibuster loomed (with the aid of any one Democrat or Independent Senator), President Obama supported the so-called nuclear option of “reconciliation,” a budget gimmick that would have seen the bill “passed” despite legitimate levels of opposition.
  3. Barack Obama on bipartisanship in The Audacity of Hope: “Genuine bipartisanship, though, assumes an honest process of give-and-take, and that the quality of the compromise is measured by how well it serves some agreed-upon goal, whether better schools or lower deficits. This in turn assumes that the majority will be constrained – by an exacting press corps and ultimately an informed electorate – to negotiate in good faith.” (131)
  4. The president once even tried to redefine “bipartisanship” as not measured by the amount of opposition party support or number of votes for a bill, but rather by the “ideas” contributed to a bill by the other party.
  5. Obama promised that passage of the PPACA would reduce overall healthcare expenditures. As reported by the AP, the plan will cost at least a trillion dollars over ten years.
  6. In order to make the plan “deficit neutral,” as meeting the PAYGO rule, the bill had to offset six years of “benefits” with ten years of taxes.
  7. Obama once vowed, “You will not see any of your taxes increase one single dime.”
  8. He also said, “I can make a firm pledge, under my plan, no family making less than $250,000 a year will see any form of tax increase. Not your income tax, not your payroll tax, not your capital gains taxes, not any of your taxes.”
  9. Another quote: “I will cut taxes – cut taxes – for 95 percent of all working families, because, in an economy like this, the last thing we should do is raise taxes on the middle class.”
  10. In just one year under Obama, the Democrats passed nearly $700 billion in tax increases, including nearly $480 billion related to Obamacare.

The Choom Gang


A new book on Barack Obama reveals fresh details about the president’s youthful days as an avid smoker of marijuana — a time when he and his fellow weed smokers called themselves the “Choom Gang.”
Among the highlights:
— Obama was known for his interceptions. This is the act of joining a circle of people passing around a joint, taking a hit and yelling, “Intercepted!”
— Obama and his friends at the Punahou School in Hawaii called themselves the “Choom Gang” — choom means smoking weed — and drove around in a Volkswagen bus called the “Choomwagon.”
— Obama and his crew enjoyed what they called “roof hits,” smoking pot inside a car with all the windows rolled up to maximize the amount of smoke they inhaled.

Will The Administration Start A War To Win An Election

U.S. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta on Sunday indirectly confirmed recent remarks by the Ambassador to Israel that the U.S. is “ready from a military perspective’’ to stop Iran from making a nuclear weapon if international pressure fails.
The U.S. and members of the United Nations Security Council recently met in Baghdad for talks about Iran’s suspected nuclear weapon program. Iran denies it has military intentions but has called for the destruction of Israel.

Kennedy Gosssip: "They're All Bullies"

Did Obama's 'Burnout Days' Destroy His Brain'

We all know the difference between normal mistakes and those that hint at a deeper, more frightening problem, such as Alzheimer's or other brain conditions. In light of this, how do you interpret a shocking mistake recently made by Barack Obama? Writes Terry Jeffrey of CNS News:
In two campaign speeches over the last two days, President Barack Obama has twice mistakenly mentioned "my sons" when defending his administration's regulation requiring virtually all health-care plans in the United States to provide women, without any fees or co-pay, with sterilizations and all Food and Drug Administration-approved contraceptives, including

2008: Obama Takes More $$$ From Bain Capital Than Any Other Candidate

What Obama intended as an attack on the business practices of Bain Capital transmogrified into a debate over the fairness of that attack. The press hates hypocrites, and it did not take much digging to report that Obama raised more from private equity in the 2008 cycle than any other candidate, and that the president’s negative ad buy went up on the very day he held a $35,800 per plate fundraised in New York City with the president of private equity firm Blackstone

Barack Holds Off On Swimming Pool Destroying Regulations

Just in time for Memorial Day weekend, in an amazing example of evolution, President Obama announced he wouldn’t enforce regulations written by his own Administration.

I’m sure we’ve all heard about the ADA swimming pool lift requirement by now. In order to make swimming pools and spas accessible to Americans with Disabilities, all facilities were required to install permanent lifts in every public facility, at a cost of at least $6,000 each, by the end of May. Locations with multiple pools would be required to install a lift for every single pool on their property. Of course, each lift would need to have a qualified operator and lifeguard on duty.

Obama's Favorite College Prof

“I had a wonderful political science class,” Obama told YouTube’s Steve Grove on January 27, 2011. “It sparked my general interest in politics. And he still teaches there and was just a wonderful, wonderful professor.” That professor was Roger Boesche. Obama took two classes from Boesche—one on Nietzsche, the other on American history—and they apparently left quite an impression.

But Obama’s “wonderful professor” had some rather odious views about the United States military, which contemporaneous accounts in the student newspaper of Occidental confirm.

What Sons

Twice in the last two days Obama has given speeches and spoken of his sons. What sons? Is there something we don't know. I'd know if I had sons.
I bring you an excerpt from The American Thinker:
I am gobsmacked, as the Brits like to say. How does one speak in public about sons if one is not a parent of male offspring? This is not the sort of slip of the tongue when a similar but wrong word is substituted for the right one.
It has never occurred to me that Barack Obama might have a second secret family, as Charles Kurault did, hidden from his first family (pardon the pun) and the general public. I still find this hard to believe.
But what kind of brain freeze or derangement leads someone to refer to my sons, when two daughters are the only fruit of conception one has created?
If George W. Bush has spoken of his sons in public twice, can you even begin to imagine the ridicule the likes of David Letterman, Bill Maher, and Jon Steward would heap on him? But with BHO, all one hears is the sound of crickets chirping.
My best guess is that the strain is showing. Obama likes to portray himself as "no drama Obama, always cool and in control. I think he is just good at maintaining the facade. Inside, he may be coming unglued.
Democrats must be hoping he can keep his story straight better than this

Confessions Of An Habitual Dope Smoker

School Celebrates Trayvon Martin Day

(WJLA) — A D.C. elementary school has declared Friday “Trayvon Martin Day.”
Teachers at Malcolm X Elementary in southeast are using the unfolding case to teach children about social injustice and race relations in the U.S.

Funded By Soros, Streisand To Destroy People's Lives


  • Drug dealer, alleged child molester, and convicted perjurer, forger and Indiana Speedway Bomber (who is also believed to have played a role in the assassination of a grandmother), Brett Kimberlin, spent 17 years in prison before his ultimate re-absorption into American society
  • He started a non-profit dubbed “Justice Through Music (JTM)” that has, since at least 2005, been funded by George Soros’ Tides Foundation and Barbara Streisand among other leftists
  • Along with his associate, Kimberlin also started an organization called “Velvet Revolution” that supports the Occupy movement.

  • Obama Belittles My Hawkeye State

    Der Schlickmeister is in Iowa and at a speech on the Iowa State Fairgrounds in Des Moines I believe the President is demeaning my ancestors, friends and relatives. Get a load of his speech:

    "Mitt Romney gave Iowans a “cow pie of distortion” when he said he knows how to douse the nation’s “prairie fire of debt,” President Barack Obama said in his first campaign event in Iowa of this election cycle".

    He thinks all we know are cow pies. I find this very insulting. My high school girlfriend, Dianne Tingwald, lived on a farm and that's as close to a cow pie as I got except for walking through the cow barns at the State Fair. For me, going through that cow barn was like going to the zoo. I had a chance to see the udder and teats up close and personal . Obama should have used a pig analogy. We are the pig capital of the nation but I've never fed a bottle of milk to a suckling pig, either. Dianne had the nicest dad in the world but laughed his rear off when I asked him about bailing corn. One day I was in the back yard looking out over a green field and knew the crop wasn't corn. I found out it was soy beans. 'Oh", I said. Then I didn't ask any more questions because I didn't know what soy beans were used for and who or what ate them. Have you ever had a plate of soybeans? To this day I couldn't tell you about their their purpose. Some sassy adviser in the administration came up with the 'cow pie' jargon. C'mon, Barry. Say something about our fine doctors at the Univ. of  Iowa hospitals. Iowa also has one of the finest writing schools in the world. The Iowa Test of Basic Skills is the model for testing elementary students in the nation. Why use cow pie? Iowa doesn't have that many cows compared to other states. Go to Wisconsin, see the Holsteins and use that derogatory phrase.  Texas has more cows than any other state. Why not make fun of them? You should have come out and said it, "Iowa-the cow pie state". As far as I'm concerned, he stepped in it big time.

    Boy, 15, Invents Simple, Cheap Test For Pancreatic Cancer

    ​While most teenage boys are inventing new ways to annoy each other and their parents, 15-year-old Maryland schoolboy Jack Andraka has been busily pioneering a new way to test for pancreatic cancer. Andraka was awarded first prize at the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair for his dipstick sensor which can test blood or urine to see if someone has early-stage pancreatic cancer. His patent-pending test has proved to be more than 90 percent accurate, and 28 times cheaper and 1000 times more sensitive than existing tests for the disease. Sounds like he definitely deserved the fair's $75,000 prize money.

    Hooray For Big Fur Hat

    What an exciting event in 'Blogdom'. It's like the saviour of the conservative movement in the genre of creativity and humor has been born. There's a new blog in our midst and you had better put it on your favorites list. Right away, now, click in www.itsbigfurhat.com and rejoice.
    Big Fur has been a main contributor of one of my absolute favorite sites, iOwnTheWorld, but has been given permission to branch out and start his own. The guy is so clever and funny he should be hired to replace Jay Leno immediately. I must warn you that The Hat can get somewhat earthy but you'll laugh your asses off after reading. No problem, though. I've got a big one and could use the extra space.

    He Is Spending More

    It's more than incredulous. It's super-incredulous. Obama and his mouthpiece, White House spokesperson, Jay Carney, are trying to make the people believe this administration has spent LESS than any administration in the last forty years. Yesterday, Obama in Iowa, was mocking the republicans, laughing at them, for suggesting Obama was the big spender and he'd prove it. What he did was give another speech in which his lemmings, those who can't or don't read, go along for the ride. Check out the spending chart. It's an undeniable truth.

    Pt. II: 1001 Reasons Why Obama Should Not Be Re-Elected

    1. Obama deprives GM bondholders of their rightful compensation in order to maintain perquisites for United Auto Workers, which drove the company into bankruptcy to begin with. This is in violation of Article 1: Section 8 clause on uniform bankruptcies.
    2. Despite being called a “success,” at least 16,500 jobs were lost due to GM and Chrysler plant closures.
    3. Dealerships contracted with GM & Chrysler all over the country were shut down. Evidence shows that Democrat-donating dealers were rescued from shutdowns.
    4. Obama’s touted “cash for clunkers” program was a fiasco that led to program mismanagement, taxpayer subsidized waste, and a temporary boost leading to original purchase levels.
    5. Thousands of cars were destroyed, harming the ability of the poor to have cheap transportation.
    6. Evidence shows that the program led only to an increase in national fuel efficiency of 0.65 miles per gallon.
    7. As part of the GM takeover, Obama authorized billions to be spent subsidizing the electric-powered Chevy Volt.
    8. The car was later proven to be prone to spontaneous combustion. Every single Chevy Volt sold, all 8,000 of them, were recalled.
    9. High campaign contributor General Electric received billions in subsidies and green energy tax breaks under Obama. In fact, GE paid zero taxes in 2010 on $14.2 billion in “profit.”
    10. General Electric spent more than $65.7 million on lobbying during the Obama administration – more than any other company.

    Women's Waist Size 6" Larger Than 60 Years Ago

    It's almost enough to make you put down the paper and pick up the Hoover.

    Women’s waistlines have grown by six inches over the past 60 years – because they don’t do as much housework as their forebears, researchers claim.

    Without the benefit of modern household appliances, 1950s housewives used to burn up to 1,000 calories a day simply by doing the chores.

    Pakistan Gives bin Laden Hero 33 Years In Jail: Obama Does Nothing

    Dr. Shakil Afridi was convicted of treason in Pakistan on Wednesday for helping the United States find Osama Bin Laden.


    In the kind of double game that has been characteristic of the Obama era, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton called for his release. But where was the administration during Afridi’s arrest and trial? Four months ago, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta openly admitted that Afridi had run a hepatitis B vaccination program in order to gather DNA samples from members of Bin Laden’s family, who were thought to be living nearby. When Afridi was charged with treason in January, Panetta lamely said that Pakistanis should be against the charge, because they were threatened by terrorism, too: “For them to take this kind of action against somebody who was helping to go after terrorism, I just think is a real mistake on their part.”

    Coal: It Could Cost Dumbo The Election

    Energy: As coal use drops, job losses rise and electricity prices skyrocket, an electoral map of the 16 top coal-mining states does not bode well for an administration whose energy policy consists of algae and exploding electric cars.
    Earlier this year, Houston-based GenOn Energy Inc. announced plans to close five of its older coal-fired power plants in Pennsylvania over the next four years, saying that tough new environmental rules make it unprofitable to operate the plants, which generate a total of 3,140 megawatts of electricity.
    The plants are in Portland, Shawville, Titus, New Castle and Elrama. Two plants in Ohio and one in New Jersey will also be closed.

    Bubba: He's Still Out There

    There's something about Clinton that fascinates me, wears me out, disgusts me, makes me want to vomit and infuriates no end. How he and Hillary could make it to the White House was a political bombshell of the worst degree. After 8 years of the Clinton's weren't you worn out from the constant soap opera scripts on a daily basis? Thanks a lot, H. Ross Perot. Now that Bill is out of the W.H. he gallivants around the world giving speeches at $100,000 plus. Seriously, how much would you spend to listen to a dissertation on bulls**t given by the former president? Yesterday, on lucianne.com , there was an article about Bill giving a speech in the UK. His picture was fully displayed and I was shocked. With Gwyneth Paltrow standing next to him the photo gave him the l look of a bad reaction to chemo. Bill is not aging well. I didn't want to bore you with the subject of Clinton so I let the article and photo slide by. Then, this morning, I was peering at lucianne again and along came another photo of Bill with buxom booby twins sidled up next to him. They happened to be at a gala festival in Monaco. I didn't include their names in this post because they might not be real;  one of them went by Kandy Kane. Both of them are movie stars but I won't be taking Lizzie to see them perform their skills at the local cinema. Two of their most famous major motion pictures are: Farm Girls Gone Bad and Baby Got Boobs 8.
    At any rate, I started to think about Lizzie and what she might say if I was traipsing around the world being constantly photographed with females standing four abreast. This will be easy for me since we've been married for forty-three years and I've put her to the test many, many times. Lizzie has a heart rate of five. Nothing phases her in her outward appearance or actions. Inside she can seethe. It was December of 1980 and we were in a bar in Clinton, Iowa with some friends. We'd been there for an hour so I was slightly lubricated; not overly but slightly. I reached for an object and knocked over a 16 oz. glass of brew onto her lap. She didn't blink, move, cry, grimace or say a word. She looked straight ahead while maintaining that 'faux smile' only she can do. I'd been down this lonesome road before so I knew what to do. Most guys would clean up their act and have a coffee. Not me. I'd already run the Jericho Mile and knew what to expect so I ordered another beer. It's like a guy on Death Row ordering his last meal. In other cases Lizzie, depending on the circumstances, would refer to me as 'old man' or 'grandpa' or "If you think you can handle them then go for it". This would be an appropriate response, "I think you'd better get to confession". And finally, "I hope you had a good time. When your grandson sees this you'll never seem him again".
    These super elites must have a differing moral code than the rest of us. From what I read Hillary and Bill have an understanding. He can go out with as many babes as he wants as long as Hillary can go out with as many babes as she wants. Such is the life of the rich and powerful. They can have all of it they want. I'm happy here in Dublin, Ohio; watering Lizzie's flowers while she's at the lake, eating more baked potatoes and looking forward to the my favorite part of the day---sleeping..

In addition, the story about Tanya Dixon-Neely, the teacher from North Carolina  who threatened a student with arrest for criticizing Obama ranks as the all-time read; 291 page views. Personally, I feel sad that the good looking ladies posts have been supplanted.

    What's Up With Bain Capital

    Are you as sick and tired of Bain Capital as I? It's turning out to be a 'pay your fare share' piece of garbage. It's also a dumbocrat talking point since they can't run on the record of this horrid president. Ask any dude on the street if he's heard of Bain Capital. If he says, "yes" you'll know if he's a republican or a member of the loser party in a heart beat by his facial response. If you would ask this same guy to explain Bain Capital he'd be clueless.
    I read a report and saw an Obama political campaign commercial how Romney destroyed a steel mill in Kansas City during the early 90's. Naturally, there were mostly likely actors telling viewers how they lost everything because Romney shut the place down and ran off with investment cash. What really happened was Romney and Bain bought the company from the previous owners who were going to shut it down. After Bain bought it they kept the place open for eight more years. That's eight years of salaries and bennies these men wouldn't have received.

    How many 'common folk' know about the businesses owned by Bain? These companies provide jobs for thousands of people. Have a look
    at some of these firms. The ignorance of people can be overwhelming. Thank the Lord MJ Hawkeye is here to educate.

    The firm was founded in 1984 by partners from the consulting firm Bain & Company. Since inception it has invested in or acquired hundreds of companies including such notable companies as AMC Entertainment, Aspen Education Group, Brookstone, Burger King, Burlington Coat Factory, Clear Channel Communications, Domino's Pizza, DoubleClick, Dunkin' Donuts, D&M Holdings, Guitar Center, Hospital Corporation of America (HCA), Sealy, The Sports Authority, Staples, Toys "R" Us, Warner Music Group and The Weather Channel.

    Very impressive I'd say. Jobs for America from Romney and Bain Capital.

    Network Silence On Catholics And Obama Lawsuit

    Change font size: A | A
    Nine prominent Catholic leaders have joined the Media Research Center to voice outrage over the broadcast networks deliberately withholding news of the momentous 43 Catholic entities suing the Obama administration for violating their religious freedoms. They represent major organizations including the Acton Institute, Cardinal Newman Society, SBA List and others. More are coming in every hour.

    There are 60 million Catholics in the US. The Catholic vote will be the most important swing vote this year. So it’s not just a major policy issue, it is one with massive political implications. Yet, 19 seconds of news coverage remains the only attention given by the evening broadcast networks. Two days after news broke, the tally is:

    - ABC World News – ZERO seconds of coverage. But, last night there was time for a full report on sleep apnea and Katie Couric discussing how she met Queen Elizabeth; how she wore a peach coat and "a lovely peach hat."

    - NBC Nightly News – ZERO seconds of coverage. But last night there was time to squeeze in a story on a new computer app that shows America's eating habits, "graphic evidence" of how we eat badly late at night.

    - CBS Evening News – a brief 19 seconds of coverage on the evening the lawsuit became public. ZERO coverage last night. But there was time in the broadcast for a Cincinnati Reds baseball fan lucky enough to catch two home runs in left field.

    The Real Story Behind The Raid On Bin Laden

    A few months ago The American Thinker ran a story about the raid on bin Laden, who was present in the situation room and of possible photo shopping in the picture that showed concerned looks on the faces of the participants. Now we find out that Obama knew where bin Laden was hiding for over a year but for whatever reasons refused to act.
    The American Thinker has a follow-up article with more pictures and even more questions. It's a good read and will give you plenty to think about and presents more questions to ask about how we, the citizenry, may have been set up.

    Did You Hear The One About The Zebra And The Parrot?

    DUBUQUE, Iowa (AP) — Police charged an eastern Iowa man with drunken driving after stopping him outside a Dubuque bar, where he was in a truck beside a small zebra and parrot.
    KCRG-TV reports (http://bit.ly/KkBp1j ) officers arrested 56-year-old Jerald Reiter on Sunday night in the parking lot of the Dog House bar. Officers gave him a field sobriety test and charged him with drunken driving.

    This guy is a poster person for not drinking. If it wasn't so sad it'd be hilarious.

    "I think my view of private equity is that uh it is. . . it is set up to maximize profits. And that’s a healthy part of a free market. That’s uh part of uh. . . ya know. . . the role of a lot of business people".

    Don't blame him. The teleprompter was in for repairs.

    $36 Million Of Your Money And Then Some

    In viewing Greta Van Susteren last night on Fox her guest was Senator Dr. Tom Coburn(Conservative-Oklahoma). Coburn was livid about, and get this, the Republican and Democrat(Liberal) National Conventions taking place this summer will be funded by you. At taxpayer expense we are being forced to allow these ying-yangs to have a good time. Sen. Coburn implored every citizen to write their representatives and senators to voice a complaint. Lotta good it's going to do. Have you heard about the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals from California? Their judgements have been overturned more times than a field of Idaho potatoes. Yet, they are attending a convention in Maui. Cost? Almost a million dollars. We are such a bunch of suckers--me included.

    The New Norm Pt. II National Masturbation Month"

    Gosh, was it only this morning I wrote about 'the new norm'? That which was shocking a year ago is now accepted as everyday fun.
    I thought you'd appreciate an update. It's going to be 'the new norm' for six year olds. My question is, when did Pelosi get a "National Masturbation Month" bill pushed through congress?

    May 21, 2012 (LifeSiteNews.com) — A Florida Planned Parenthood affiliate has taken the opportunity of “National Masturbation Month” to highlight the national organization’s promotion of masturbation as part of a “a common and safe kind of sex play” with “many health benefits.”
    On Friday, Planned Parenthood of Southwest and Central Florida tweeted, “Happy Masturbation Month! We’ve got lots of info on masturbation here,” providing a link to Planned Parenthood Federation of America’s page on masturbation.
    There, Planned Parenthood states that “there are many harmful myths about masturbation that may cause us to feel uncomfortable about it. These myths can cause guilt, shame, and fear. Let’s get the facts straight. Masturbation is a natural and common activity for both women and men.”
    The parenting section of Planned Parenthood’s website tells parents to encourage elementary-age children to experiment with masturbation.

    ChiComs Buy Largest US Movie Chain

    AMC, headquartered in Kansas City, Mo., operates 346 multiplex theaters, mostly in North America, with a total of 5,034 screens, an AMC release said today. The price was $2.6 billion. AMC happens to be MJH's favorite movie complex. I should write, "it used to be my favorite movie complex". People in this country won't have to worry about a war with China. They're going to own us in a few decades. Petroleum? Heck, the Chinese are buying it up faster than I eat M&M's.

    Another Foreign Policy Failure

    An Islamist who believes that the 9/11 terrorist attacks on the United States were an American conspiracy is the front-runner in Egypt’s presidential race, a new poll shows.
    Abdel-Moneim Abolfotoh, formerly a leading figure in the Muslim Brotherhood, led the field of 13 candidates with 32 percent of the vote in a survey released Monday by the Washington-based Brookings Institution.
    Mr. Abolfotoh expressed his views on the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon in an interview last year with Egypt scholar Eric Trager.

    1001 Reasons To Vote Against Obama

    From The Conservative Daily News: This is a first in a series of ten publications. I have listed 10 but click on the link to see the rest
    1. The man started his presidency off with a bang by botching his oath of office.
    2. For good measure, he set the tone for it by blaming Chief Justice John Roberts for the error.
    3. Obama promises on the campaign trail to immediately shut down Guantanamo Bay. The detention facility is open three years later and counting.
    4. In the same breath, he promises to restore habeus corpus. Three years into his term, he signs the National Defense Authorization Act, which leaves open the possibility of indefinite detention of American citizens.
    5. President Obama ordered the assassination of an American citizen.
    6. As Senator, Obama spoke out against but voted for the Patriot Act.
    7. As President, he extended it, with an auto-pen, while he was in France.
    8. Obama continues the “Bush practice” of extraordinary rendition.
    9. As a candidate, Obama promises to end the War in Iraq and bring all troops home within 16 months. He even says in 2007 that it would be the first thing he would do in office, and that “you can take that to the bank.” As president, he announces all troops would be withdrawn by the end of 2011 (34 months later).
    10. Obama states the Afghan War would conclude in June 2011, but projections now have us running into 2014.

    The New Norm

    There was an article in the Columbus Dispatch(Ohio) a few days ago about teachers in the Olentangy school district. The Olentangy schools, I presume, are the fastest growing and most financially sound in Ohio. Olentangy schools offer the very best with the most up to date facilities. To the victors go the spoils. The teacher's settled a contract last week. It didn't provide for much in the way of a pay increase BUT one provision stood out. Teacher's who are in a civil union with another person, even though that person is not employed in the system will receive equal health benefits. Does that sound strange to you? This might the first time you've hear about it. Then after awhile it becomes no big deal. Why? Because it's the 'new norm'. Times they are a changin'. What was 'verboten' five years ago is A-Ok now. You can come up with examples. You'd be surprised how many there are if you put you mind to it. A number of years ago I taught high school in southeast Wisconsin. One of my friends, before he retired five years ago, told me a 'new norm' story. A janitor was employed by the school. His name was Larry. On the first day of school the principal, over the PA system, announced that from now on 'Larry' was to be called 'Larissa'. It took about a week for the 'new norm' to kick in.
    I read an announcement about TV programming for the upcoming 2013 season. We are about to be inundated with more gay-type shows than one can imagine. I think we have two now: Modern Family and the soon to be departed Glee. If there are 10% of the population who are homo's(there fewer) why should we all have to suffer? Because television producers are libs from the East and West Coast who think they know what's best for flyover people. It's the' new norm'. Did you know that the obnoxious and gut wrenching MTV is having a show next year with the subject matter being about how to get teen-age girl's to lose their virginity? Isn't that disgusting? But for a lot of folks in this country, even though they won't take the time to watch this garbage, it very probably will become 'the new norm'.
    The 'new norm' is sad. A value system is destroyed because good folks get worn out and tired of trying to uphold a value system. We get used to things. One of the Kardashians, the fat one, was on Fox and Friends' yesterday morning for a nine minute segment. Unbeknownst to anyone she had a nipple exposed for the entire segment. She knew. It was on youTube for awhile. Was it big news anywhere? Was it like Janet Jackson exposing whatever she exposed. I forget. Was it her breast? Hmmm! I'm not sure because it's now 'the new norm'.
    I could go on and on for hours but you get my drift. Our society is out of control.

    Creative, independent thinkers are be a joy to be around but they sometimes frustrate the living tar out of me. One of my reader's, the Independent Thinker, is this way. Lizzie is the same. Just when I believe I've come up with a brilliant thought, an original idea, they'll counter with an opposite view then I'm back to square one in my process. I find that independent thinkers are also very creative. They create analogies. They can also be very humorous in way that Charles Krauthammer would understand.  As for me, I parrot ideas that sound good then embellish on them. A good example of original, creative thought occurred last Saturday. I was listening to radio during my trek to see grandson, Kingston.
    A fella from Michigan came on and started talking about how liberals use the Bible to justify their programs. They'll give us clap trap about how Jesus wants us to 'share the wealth' or use some incorrect reference to homosexuals made by Our Savior; turn the other cheek or some other silly reference they say was made in the scriptures as justification for what they want. Then, followers of said crap will follow along in lockstep. But, it's these same liberals who want to tear down the Ten Commandments from buildings, eliminate the word 'God' from any school or song. It's these out of the mainstream libs who ask us to turn the other cheek yet will allow a child still in the womb to be slaughtered before it's seen daylight. How many times do we have to read about the ACLU supported by the justice department wanting to eliminate any reference to God in the public school system?. Now Queen Nancy comes out with a statement that priests in the military should be forced to marry 'gay blades' but, in my opinion, she's the most godless Catholic of all. It's whatever fits the narrative, folks.
    I was so fired up listening to this Michigander I wanted to scream the hated phrase from the Sixties, "Right On", but I didn't.
    Anyway, the guy on the radio made some fabulous comments and he gave me a lot to think about. thinking can be a good thing, especially when I'm not a creator.

    Why Keep It Quiet; Dixon-Neely Should Be Fired

    I couldn't wait to give you the scoop on Ms. Tanya Dixon-Neely, high school teacher in North Carolina. The public school social studies instructor got into a heated debate with one of her students; told him he would go to jail if he said bad things about Obama. She said it was against the law and that Bush did it all the time. O Lord, what is this world coming to? The only advantage of having liberals is to make me feel more intelligent. There is a nine minute video of the heated argument.

    53,000 Dead Voters In Florida

    It has been learned that Florida election officials are set to announce that the secretary of state has discovered and purged up to 53,000 dead voters from the voter rolls in Florida.
    How could 53,000 dead voters have sat on the polls for so long? Simple. Because Florida hadn’t been using the best available data revealing which voters have died. Florida is now using the nationwide Social Security Death Index for determining which voters should be purged because they have died.
    Here is the bad news. Most states aren’t using the same database that Florida is. In fact, I have heard reports that some election officials won’t even remove voters even when they are presented with a death certificate. That means that voter rolls across the nation still are filled with dead voters, even if Florida is leading the way in detecting and removing them.
    But surely people aren't voting in the names of dead voters, the voter fraud deniers argue. Wrong.

    The Myth Of The Kennedy Curse

    Along with their waning power, wealth, privilege and prestige, here’s another element of the Camelot mystique that needs to be extinguished: the myth of “The Kennedy Curse.” It’s almost a reflexive national reaction when we hear of yet another Kennedy dying too young, so of course it was invoked again last week, when news broke that Mary Richardson Kennedy, the estranged 52-year-old wife of Robert Kennedy Jr., had hung herself in her barn on Wednesday. A curse, however, implies supernatural intervention by vengeful gods jealous of mortal youth, beauty, brilliance.
    ACE/INFphoto.com
    Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and his wife Mary Richardson Kennedy during a 2002 gala benefit to celebrate the Sundance Institute 20th Anniversary at Cipriani on 42nd St. in New York City
     
    Let’s just call it what it is: the natural fallout when you’re a member of a family riddled with entitled, underachieving drunks, drug addicts and adulterers, whose treatment of women is historically deplorable.
    It’s a top-down mentality that began in the 1920s, with patriarch Joe. Leaving aside his other character flaws — running with gangsters, espousing racist and anti- Semitic beliefs, buying his son’s presidential election — Joe was such a callous philanderer that he often brought his mistress, actress Gloria Swanson, home to dinner with his wife, Rose.

    Funny Letter From Pres. Reagan To Seventh-Grader

    An amusing letter from former President Ronald Reagan in response to a 13-year-old boy's request for disaster relief funds to clean up his room is making the rounds again on social media, thanks to a blog writer.
    Shaun Usher of Letters of Note tweeted the classic correspondence. Seventh-grader Andy Smith from Irmo, South Carolina, wrote Reagan in 1984: "Today my mother declared my bedroom a disaster area. I would like to request federal funds to hire a crew to clean up my room."
    It appears you'll have to ckick on the highlighted words to read the letter.

    5 Most Popular Posts Of 2011

    Readers: In checking out the stats for 2011 I came across the five most popular posts for the year. I had an inkling about #1. I don't know why? Wishful thinking on all our parts most likely. Here they are:

    1) 50 reasons why Obama should not be re-elected, April 25. Is it even necessary to explain this?
    2) Palestinian women vs. Israeli women, October 9. I mean, with a black veil over your face who wants a pig in a poke. Sorry, Muslims. Pig is not the operative word.
    3) The most beautiful women, December 30. I  must have a ton of mail readers or--------
    4) Star Jones proves herself to be foolish and racist, Septermber 24. Most of you might be asking, "who the hell is Star Parker"?
    5) Why not Boone, Iowa, April 13. Evidently, I have a slug of hometown readers. Good ol' Boone, Iowa. I'll be back June 27. I plan on driving through McHose Park then follow the road south to the Ledges State Park. I haven't been there in years; since high school. If you ever have the opportunity to drive west of Ames, Iowa  on Highway 30 and come to the 4 corner stop south of Boone it would do you good to turn left and drive five miles south to the Ledges. MJH has many memories of the Ledges and they don't involve girls or beer.
    And, as long as I'm on the subject of places to visit---I read an article in some national magazine about a couple who decided to drive across the United States from Massachusetts. They stopped in my town of Dublin and visited Jenni's Ice Cream and they raved about it. It seems people from the East Coast have this thing about having the best of everything from Philly cheesesteaks to baseball teams to pizza slices. Not this time. In my opinion, after Bruster's, Jenni's is the very best.

    Can You Read This?

    Do you know how to read or do you point your finger at pictures when going to Home Depot? Being illiterate must be frustrating for folks. A few weeks ago I was at my golf course and had an hour to wait for my buddies to arrive so I thought I'd walk the woods on hole #10 to kill time. I enjoy hawking for balls. It's a peaceful stroll among the flora and fauna and, once in awhile, an errant shot by a golfer finds it's way to your path. Anyway, on this particular day as I was looking for Titleists a maintenance man mowing the fairways rode up to me and began shouting in a hate-filled rant, "*%*^%#@### You and get the hell outta here".*** As you can imagine, since I pay to belong to this place, I was more than flabbergasted. I reported Joe Schmo to the management and requested an apology letter or I wanted the retirement aged guy fired. What I received on a piece of paper read like something written by Abraham Lincoln prior to the Gettysburg Address so I knew it didn't come from the grass cutter. It was later revealed to me that management had to write the letter because said yokel was completely illiterate.*** This brings be to the point of this post. The state of Florida requires its high school students to take a reading test before they graduate. All 9th and 10th graders, to meet high school graduation requirements, have to pass this test. 50% of them failed the exam.
    I can understand this result. Kids have many more important things to do than learn to read; hanging out at the mall is important. Working on schemes to get your girlfriend pregnant or high on drugs can work against them, too. It's impossible to lump all schools into the reading problem. Let's face it, the problems lie mostly in the inner cities. You know these. They're the ones controlled by the democrat party since the inception of the Great Society boondoggle. I'm willing to wager my next social security check that if private school scores are eliminated from the testing report the 50% score jumps dramatically. In 1985 I earned an interview at a high school in Kansas City, Turner H.S. to be exact, for a head basketball coaching position. Since I'd never been to KC for a professional job I was darned excited---until I saw the school. It was in the inner city. A chain link fence surrounded the school grounds of this coed facility. At the top of the fence was one of those barbed wire jobbers tilted inward. The air went out of my balloon faster than a bullet one inch away from the intended victim. Even before the interview I had my answer on whether or not I was going to take the job but I went through  with the interview anyway. After all, it was a life experience.
    So, who do we blame for this problem? How about the parent's who have the kids from day 1? If the children don't get the basics by third grade they'll lose interest. They become embarrassed and won't try. I recall going to the blackboard to diagram sentences or trying to solve a basic math problem in front of the class. It was frustrating because I just didn't get it. I was in a position where I didn't tell anyone how I felt because I didn't want to look stupid. Wouldn't it have been nice if I would have been able to tell a teacher or parent how I felt? To me, though, reading is much different that diagramming sentences. At least , "we ain't got no" gets the point across wheres 10 plus 10 equals 5,000 doesn't work that well. Do the teachers fit into the mix? I wonder how excited and motivated the teachers were to trudge into their classroom at good ol' Turner High School. Personally, I don't see a way out. The government has the answer as usual. Throw more money at the problem. Our money! I'd appreciate any and all comments on this subject. I'm at a loss and for me to admit that is a revelation for mankind.
    The next time you go into a Wendy's look at the register. The cashier takes your order by pressing a picture of what you want. Management will say it's to speed up the process and they're correct. If a kid had to look at numbers and names, cars would be lined up out into in the streets at the drive-thru. When my grandson was three he told me he could read. "Show me", I said. We drove by a Burger King and he shouted out what it was. That's the type of reading we're getting from our kids----in the inner cities.
    I think Elizabeth Warren, faux senatorial candidate from Massachusetts and faux Indian might have the correct response to education in America if interviewed: "We're in heap big trouble"!

    Irresponsibility 101 And Beyond


    And you thought Octomom had her hands full—a Tennessee man who has fathered 30 children is asking the courts for a break on child support.
    Desmond Hatchett, 33, of Knoxville has children with 11 different women, reports WREG-TV.
    The state already takes half his paycheck and divides it up, which doesn't amount to much when Hatchett is making only minimum wage. Some of the moms receive as little as $1.49 a month. The oldest child is 14 years old.

    Prime Example Of How Stupid Youngsters Can Be

    There's a NATO Summit meeting in Chicago this week-end. A mryiad of late age teens and those with two decades of breathing under their belts are in the Windy City to cause mayhem in the streets. As long as they were in town a few of their leaders thought it'd be a notch in their pistol to protest the racist, sexist pig, Rush Limbaugh. So, they all marched to his office to protest his radio show. Now is when we find out how really ill-informed and ridiculous young people can be. Any semi-informed individual knows that Rush has his offices in West Palm Beach, Florida. The 'office' these clowns picketed was WLS, 890 on your radio dial; the station that carries his show. Idiots!

    News Briefs

    I was checking out the DrudgeReport this afternoon. Matt Drudge is on top of everything. He received his initial fame for exposing the infamous 'blue dress' in the Monica-Bill scandal. Now that he's credible it's fun to read articles just below the fold. Maybe a couple of these will pique your interest.
    1) Debt per household increased $12, 984 for the year 2011.
    2)  The House GOP deamnds Eric Holder respond to Fast and Furious questions
    3) Barry Obama's literary description for his book, Dreams Of My Father, claim he was born in Kenya.
    4) Flesh eating disease has been in the news frequently lately. This article says it has eaten a man's penis. Ouch!
    5) There is talk of a government 'Fat Tax' for obese people.

    Word Of Wisdom About Socialism

    Socialism is a philosophy of failure,

    the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy,

    its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery.."

    -- Winston Churchill  

    1. You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity, by legislating the wealth out of prosperity.
    2. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving.
    3. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.
    4. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.
    5. When half of 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 work for, that is the beginning the of end of any nation.

    Gov't Fines H.S. $15K For Selling Soda

    A Utah high school is learning the hard way that the government is serious about nudging students away from food it doesn’t want them to consume. Davis High School in the Salt Lake City area is having to fork over a whopping $15,000 in fines to the Feds because it accidentally sold soda through a vending machine during lunch.
    Federal law requires the school to turn off its soda machines during the lunch period, which is 47 minutes a day. And Davis High school did turn off the machines in the lunch room. However, the school didn‘t realize that there was another machine in the school bookstore that wasn’t being turned off. And when the food police realized it, the school was hit with a $0.75 fine per student for the duration of the offense.
    Now the school is going to have to cut money to fine arts programs to make up the cost.

    As of today, May 17, 2012 I'm in the minority. According to whoever figures these things out there are more non-white babies being born in the US than whites. Hmmm! This means I can scream racism whenever I desire. I can sue for back pay because my great-grandfather had his green house destroyed by a tornado in Boone, Iowa in 1917. I'll use the excuse that his estate would have been richer than that of Bill Gates by now. I'll be able to scream, "It's not fair", and start receiving every entitlement due me. I like this. Who would have thought, even though I do look like an Indian, my life could be so full. Sorry Indians. You've been lumped into the majority.

    Drink More Coffee

    It's all over the radio, print media and television. WTVN radio in Columbus has been touting the coffee story all day long. According to the announcers and I quote: "If men drink six or more cups of coffee a day they won't die" This is fantastic. Women should drink coffee, too, but no mention was made of the death part. I drink at the very least 10 cups of joe a day. I should live beyond eternity.

    Where Are The People

    Don't bother me too much about my literary genius lately. My creativity juices are in limbo and nothing has struck me as newsworthy. Readership is down two hundred a day and the only reason(s) for this that come to mind are: weather is nice and folks are planting flowers, golfing and fishing or procreating. We won't know the real facts on the last one until next February. It could be that many are sick and tired of reading about BHO. Yep, that's my guess.
    I did attend another funeral yesterday. It's a sign of the times and I don't like it. Our next door neighbor, Mrs. Hoag, passed away. She was lovely in every way. I only knew her for three years and she was bedridden most of the time but she always invited me into the house and she had a perpetual smile on her face along with a good word to say. I emailed a few friends about the memorial and, since none of them knew the lady I decided to write them a frivolous comment. I wrote that I sat next to Jack Nicklaus, which I did. Anyway, I told the guys that during the service there was a lull and I sort of nudged Jack on the shoulder and said, "could you check out my golf grip"? As is usual one of the guys thought I was serious. Maybe I don't express myself well enough with the written word.
    I've decided I'm going to buy a suit for specific occasions. One for funerals, another for weddings and a third for Bar Mitzvahs. Speaking of weddings we attend a nifty one in Findlay, Ohio last Saturday. The young man is the most humble person I've ever met. He's an accountant and very devout in his Catholic faith. He met his Mrs. on an on-line Catholic dating web site. They dated for two years then he popped the question and a year later they tied the knot. For their honeymoon they're going to Rome and it's set up that they will have an audience with the Pope and he's going to personally bless them and their wedding rings. That's cool especially if you happen to be one of us. Their wedding reception was typical Catholic; lots of booze, dancing and toward the end of the evening many obnoxious wildly singing Irish impersonators. When there are wild Catholic weddings you'll see a boat load of protestants trying to crash the festivities. We can always ferret them out by asking them to show the 'secret hand shake' or by asking them to show their St. Christoper medal. If they pull one out we know they're bogus. He's been a Mr. Christopher for at least two decades.

    Last Sunday on HBO’s Girls (The show which everyone needs to debate! Needs to!), the character Marnie was having sex with her long-term boyfriend Charlie, who she’s grown to despise but is unable to break up with. Not even wanting to look at him, the bored Marnie tells Charlie to flip her over and have sex with her from behind, pretending that he misheard her every previous time she’d said she didn’t like that. He complies and, while Marnie stares off into space bored, Charlie happily exclaims how good it all feels. As you can tell, it was a pretty uncomfortable scene. Not, however, for the father of the actress playing Marnie; Brian Williams

    Tip Of The Iceberg

    CINCINNATI — A Catholic university in eastern Ohio says it will drop student health insurance partly because of a new federal health-care rule requiring religious-affiliated institutions’insurance plans to provide contraception coverage.

    An official with Franciscan University in Steubenville said today that another reason for the decision was higher costs resulting from other provisions of the federal health-care overhaul.

    The school’s vice president for advancement says the university, with 2,500 students, cannot include coverage of contraception services and products that are opposed by the Roman Catholic Church.

    Xavier University of Cincinnati has also followed suit. One can only imagine the impact Obama's healthcare debacle is going to have on the economy.  Ladies and gentleman, there are many, many Catholic organizations in this country. Who's going to pay the bill because of the governments intrusion into our religious freedoms?

    Obama A 1%'er--Ten Times Over

    How does a person who is a community organizer get to be worth ten million dollars in less than a decade? It's an easy answer. Go into politics. This is heady stuff for me. Being President gets you maybe $350K. I haven't checked it out recently. His books made him a little over 2 million at the top end. Somebody's got some splainin' to do.

    Obama Pal Gets $5.9 Million From HHS

    What are the odds that the president’s golfing buddy can secure a government grant? About 26 in 3000, or thereabouts.
    The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has awarded a $5.9 million grant to a University of Chicago Medical Center program run by one of President Barack Obama’s closest friends.
    Obama’s longtime friend, Eric Whitaker, runs the Urban Health Initiative (UHI), which was founded as a means of connecting low-income patients with health clinics in their own communities.
    The UHI was one of only 26 programs — out of 3,000 applications — to receive a slice of the $1 billion in taxpayer money from the executive’s “We Can’t Wait” initiative, which is aimed at spurring job growth via executive action, reported Keith Koffler at White House Dossier.
    HHS has denied any White House involvement in the decision, but the president will have a tough time feigning surprise given his deep ties to the UHI:
    • Eric Whitaker runs the UHI, has known the president since his days at Harvard Law and occasionally vacations with the Obamas.
    • Michelle Obama launched the UHI while working as an executive at the University of Chicago Medical Center, which runs the program.
    • Valerie Jarrett, the president’s senior adviser, was the chairman of the University of Chicago Medical Center board of trustees until she resigned her post to join the White House.
    • David Axelrod, now-communications director for the Obama campaign, provided public relations services to the UHI after Michelle Obama recommended that he be hired in 2006.http://pjmedia.com/tatler/2012/05/14/obama-friend-gets-5-9-million-from-hhs/

    Did Someone Say, "Frank Marshall Davis"

    Barack Obama is being presented as America’s first gay president by Newsweek, which glorifies his decision to recognize same-sex marriage. The Newsweek cover story will serve a purpose other than generating interest in a magazine that has been losing circulation and advertising revenue if it is viewed as an opportunity to finally discuss the taboo subject of Obama’s communist mentor, Frank Marshall Davis. This controversial figure, who drank heavily and smoked dope, wrote a pornographic novel in which the author declared, “under certain circumstances I am bisexual,” and discussed having sex with a young girl named “Anne.”
    Despite Obama’s ABC News interview, where he claimed coming around on the issue in part because of conversations about homosexuals with his young daughters, Davis is the key to understanding Obama. Davis influenced Obama from ages 10 to 18, his critical growing-up years in Hawaii. Obama admits getting “hard-earned knowledge” from Davis.

    Union Bosses' Hypocrisy

    The leaders of America’s unions have been very vocal lately in their criticism of Republicans and of business. According to them, Republicans care only about the wealthy and are unfairly targeting the workers of America with their reforms. These union leaders insist that only they can speak for regular Americans. In fact, their own salaries suggest that they have nothing in common with the average citizen. Here is a short list of some of the highest-earning, and most hypocritical, union presidents:
    Michael J. Sullivan, general president of the Sheet Metal Workers’ International Association
    Salary: $1,043,023
    Robert A. Scardelletti, international president of the Transportation Communications Union
    Salary: $748,531
    Newton B. Jones, president of the International Brotherhood of Boilermakers
    Salary: $607,022
    Terence M. O’Sullivan, general president of the Laborers’ International Union of North America
    Salary: $589,124
    John T. Niccollai, president of the United Food and Commercial Workers Union, Local 464A
    Salary: $532,752
    Gerald McEntee, international president of the American Federation of State, County, and Municipal Employees
    Salary: $530,000

    Cost To Taxpayer For Occupy Movements

    The total cost of occupations last fall hasn't been officially tallied by anyone. However, in most cases, each city that hosted a camp has released some information on the estimated cost for policing and cleanup. A tally based on press reports nationwide puts the total at nearly $30 million:
    Total: $29,110,827
