The War Room

For as long as you've looked at this blog you know my wife and I are movie goers. She's more of the serious type, likes those films where thinking is involved. I'm one of those who enjoys mindless comedy. As an example, last week I watched a W.C. Fields marathon on the Decades Channel. It's so sad that we can't have that type of writing and performances today.

There is a film going around called The War Room. It doesn't deal with WWII or other battles of the military kind. But, it exposes life's battle between unhappily married couples and families.

The main characters are a wife who works in  real estate business, her husband who is a pharmaceutical salesman and their precious 7 year old daughter. They are a family but, in reality, the mom and dad are adrift and working toward a divorce. There is no familial love and this knowledge is not lost on their daughter.

Then, through the wisdom of an elderly woman, a great transformation takes place. I don't want to scare you off but their epiphany is due to the love and grace of God. This is a God movie. It is one about Christianity and how we should treat each other, especially the ones we should love the most.

I've seen many God movies in my life dating back to the Charleston Heston  film titled, The Ten Commandments and this ranks in the top two. Don't ask me which is number one because I'd be at a loss to come up with an answer.

If you're wondering why it's titled The War Room I'm not telling. You'll have to shell out the coin and find out yourself.

Let me put it this way: If you are a man or women, Christian or not, parent or non-parent see the film. If you are a human being go tonight. After you leave the theater you'll feel better about yourself and your fellow man.

And You Think High Schools Are For Educating Your Children

Hendrickson High School, Pflugerville, Texas has come up with a new course of study for it's students.

The course syllabus must read like so, "We think you're stupid and want to send your parents to jail" or something like that.

The school passed out a self test to it's students. Call me crazy but I'd use it for toilet paper then turn it back to a guidance counselor for the circular file.

Another Sign Armageddon Is Upon Us

Mexican Restaurant Banned From Handing Out Sombreros As University Brands Them Racist

It's not only the Ugly American who can become an obnoxious racist. We now find out that it can happen across the pond, as in Norwich, England, the home of East Anglia University. You may have already heard of this university. It's the home of the fabled hockey stick for determining global warming.

It seems a local bistro, Pedro's Tex-Mex, was offering free sombrero's to college students as a promotion. The University, in it's deluded state of mind banned the practice of acceptance by members of the student body. It's reasoning? It would be racist for a non-Mexican to sport a Mexican sombrero. I can't make this stuff up.

Obama Relases 20th Hijacker From Gitmo

Need any more proof about where Obama’s loyalties lay? Abdul Rahman Shalabi the so called, 20th hijacker on 9/11 (who was trained to hijack a plane and fly it into a building). Abdul Rahman Shalabi never made it on a plane, but he was still a part of Bin Laden’s network of terrorists. Here are just some of the things the declassified memo said about Abdul Rahman Shalabi:

Really now, what is Mr. Obama's justification for releasing a person who planned the slaughter of 3,000 innocent souls? Is it because he wishes for his Muslim brothers to take pity on him?

San Francisco Is Now Crime Free

Business for the last gun shop in the city of 840,000 has been good, according to Alcairo, especially since the store, which caters to law enforcement and outdoors enthusiasts, announced it would close next month.
Situated in the prominent city heart of Mission Street, High Bridge Arms was founded in the mid-1950s by Bob Chow, who competed in the 1948 Olympics 25-yard pistol shooting event. By some accounts a Bay Area institution, it has long been a tourist destination - specially for members of the law enforcement community who visit the city.

Even Steven Might Be A Good Deal

You know about those people whose goal in life is to amass tremendous amounts of financial gain.
Then, on their death beds, they'll go the same way as me. Some will go kicking and screaming and others will fade into the darkness without a whimper.

I've always had a philosophy about money and life. I want to get out of it 'Even Steven'. In other words, I came in with nothing and want to leave it that way.

Five years ago on a wintry January evening I visited a domed indoor golf facility. There were piles of snow on the ground as I walked to the entrance. I was looking at the ground to shield myself from the wind and spied what I thought was a dollar bill wedged in the snow.

I picked it up and saw that it wasn't a dollar bill but a hundred dollar one. Being the good Catholic boy I am I told the man behind the counter about my find without mentioning the exact amount and gave him my home phone number. No one ever contacted me so I kept the money and purchased a low class hooker!(Only wanted to see if you were paying attention). I donated it to my cousin for the Muscular Dystrophy since she's a victim.

I've been down the money finding road before. In 1979 my then seven year old son and I were walking downtown in Davenport, Iowa. Lying on a curb, with no personal information, was a wallet containing $75.00.

I don't know what I would have done had my son not been with me but I felt this was as good a time as any to teach him a life lesson so we went to the police department and turned it in.

I suspect it eventually found its way into the pocket of the desk sergeant but who knows.

I've decided The Queen needed a house cleaner. Actually, she made that decision but I'm paying for the lady to come in and do her work. If you're a young man about to get married this is how it works to make a marriage work. It's sort of like when Her Majesty, just prior to our 25th wedding anniversary, asked me: "Am I worth a hundred dollars a year"? There's an easy answer to this so I said, "Of course, you are". What else can a guy say? Anyway, she came back with: "That's good because I just bought a $2,500 sapphire ring"?

This morning on the way back from the golf course driving range I laid two twenties and a ten spot on the front car seat. Not thinking, I had both windows down. Soon the bills were flying haphazardly
around the front of the car so I immediately closed up the windows. Upon further inspection when I arrived home I was left with thirty dollars.

Some lucky person is going to have lunch on me. I hope they're needy but since I was driving through Muirfield Village in Dublin, Ohio my assumption is they'll be used for a couple of martini's at an upscale bistro.

Then I started thinking about unseen wealth I've accumulated in my life and money that I've lost.
Know what? In the long run I'd like to believe it's going to be 'even steven' when I get outta here.

For instance, my car glove compartment serves as my personal bank. When I get my monthly allowance a packet of twenties is placed in it. Since I don't like using credit cards on a whim along with carrying a wad of bills in my wallet the glove bank serves the purpose. Six months ago I was cleaning out the compartment and three renegade twenties showed in the accumulated clutter. Taking this into account and thinking about today's lost twenty I figure I'm forty dollars to the good.

You readers should make a listing of your own 'even steven'. It'll help you decide if you're an optimist or pessimist.

You Might Have To Be A Practicing Roman Catholic To Understand The Indignity

The Obama administration made several incendiary invites to the pope’s visit to the White House on Wednesday.
Obama invited gay Episcopalian bishop Gene Robinson, Catholic transgender activist Matteo Williams, and Sister Simone Campbell, a nun who lobbied for Obamacare’s passage despite its provisions funding abortion and forcing Catholic organizations to provide birth control.
A gay Catholic school teacher and her wife were also invited to the event this morning.
The Obama administration also gave 10 tickets to Trita Parsi and other Iranian regime stooges.

Although Obama did invite a pro-abortion nun to the speech, he did not hand out any tickets to pro-Life groups.

R.I.P. Viktor The Viking

Viktor Viking

It was ten years or so ago this proud father wrote the story of the Minnesota Viking's newest mascot, Viktor the Viking. At the request of The Viking's CEO, Ziggy Wolff, a contest was held to create a kid friendly mascot to counter the brutish Ragnar who rode into the stadium on a motorcycle scaring the bejeezuz out of anyone under the age of 12.

Anyway, my eldest son was named the winner and came up with the design pictured above. Actually, he doesn't think it was all that good and it might not be. I'm privy to much of his work and he's come up with some great ideas and pieces of artwork.

I found out today Viktor has gone to wherever Nordic mascots go four years ago. I told my son he should ask for the costume and put it in his garage so his kids have something to wear on Halloween.

As for Ragnar, he was fired yesterday. His demand of $20 thousand per game appearance seemed a bit high for the Viking management. Twenty grand is a pretty good gig if you can get it. Heck, I would have settled for fifty bucks and all the popcorn I could eat.

What's The Big Deal About A President Being Muslim

Dr. Ben Carson is under fire from the media, such a surprise, for saying a Muslim shouldn't be our president. The Trumpster, at a political meeting, was asked a question by a Hillary supporter about Obama being our president and didn't put him down or refute his statement.

These remarks or lack thereof have the MM in a tither. It's their story of the day. I can only guess what will show up tomorrow.

Regardless, concerning Obama's supposed Muslim faith as to whether he is or isn't what's the problem?

I look at it this way. Obama's daddy was a Muslim. His granddaddy was the same. His brother(s) are Muslim as is Aunt Tooney and a whole slew of relatives in Kenya.

When Obama was a youth in Indonesia he went to a Muslim school and it wasn't called St. Gertrude's or St. Michael's so he doesn't have that to fall back on.

During the first election cycle in an interview with George Stephanopoulos he stated he was a Muslim until he was corrected by George that he was mistaken. Obama quickly corrected himself saying he was Christian.

The Rev. Jeremiah Wright has stated he is a Muslim.

Holy Cripes and sakes alive. How stupid are we?

We've had a Muslim in office going on seven years so who cares what Trump and Carson say?

Syrian/Iraqi Muslim Refugees Demand End To Oktoberfest


Dear City council of Munich,
I am writing this letter to bring to your attention something that I
and many Muslims believe is unfair and requires attention. I would like to inform you that the Oktoberfest is an Intolerant and Anti-Islamic event. We tried to ignore the event, but there too many Un-Islamic acts done at the Oktoberfest. Such as alcohol consumption, public nudity etc.
We understand that the Oktoberfest is a yearly German tradition, but we, Muslims, can not tolerate this Un-Islamic event, because it offends us and all Muslims on the earth. We are requesting the immediate cancellation of the upcoming Oktoberfest event.
We also believe that the Oktoberfest might also offend all the Muslim refugees coming from Syria, Iraq,
Afghanistan. The cancellation of the Oktoberfest event will help refugees not to forget their Islamic history. Thank you for your attention to this matter.

Tales Of An Aging Man

When we first married, around a hundred years or so in living in the village of honey and nectar Her Majesty once told me, "I can hardly wait to turn 70". Now, I'll never pretend to understand women but even back then I thought this was a ridiculous statement.

Maybe she thought great wisdom would be hers. A week ago The Queen celebrated number 68. For one day depression set in but she soon got over it.

Anyway, I got to thinking about this aging process and how it's affected me. Sad to say it happened at Mass this morning but it wasn't my fault. As I was about to get in my pew I genuflected. The problem was, how do I get up without using a hoist? I did make it with the help of a grunt, sort of like "Uhn".

The last time I played a 7,000 yard golf course was in 2001. I shot a 78 at a place called Echo Springs.

Since then I play at 6,400 yard. Ten years ago I could drive the ball a good 250-260 yards. Now, if it goes 230 I want to call a television network and shout the news.

I wear hearing aids----and like it. When I go on a trip I have a large plastic container filled with prescription pills. A vacation requires the organization of the CEO at Pfizer.

Three nights ago, while getting ready for bed, I brushed my teeth and threw down my nightly pills and went to bed. Then I'd forgotten to fill my CPAP machine with water for sleep apnea so it was back to the bathroom. I'd left the water spigot on my previous trip. "Man, what an idiot" I said to no one in particular and promised never to do it again.

This morning I got up and came downstairs and was met my The Queen. "Do you know you left the bathroom water on all night"? The sad aspect to this is I went to the bathroom four times and still didn't hear it. This, too, wasn't my fault. I don't wear hearing aids when I sleep.

I'm not certain if it's hard being me or getting old. What I do know is old-timers, really old-timers, don't care if they die. It's a heck of a lot easier than spending a good part of the week re-filling prescriptions, buying inserts to correct hammer toes, re-filling the CPAP machine and all that jazz.

I have many good and dear friends and they all have the same first name. They're called called Doctor.

About The Clock--it's A Fraud Story

We should have known. The kid who made the clock. Well, he didn't. he bought a panel made in the early 70's.

Did you know his old man is a Muslim activist?

The funny part of the story is that Obama made such a big deal out of the kid's supposed scientific expertise. Remember how he tried to make a hero out of Bowe Bergdahl? It backfired.

It's the same old story for liberals. They overreact then have to pick up their bat scat quietly. A good example would be when Al Gore is invited to speak at a global warming conference but it has to be canceled due to a massive snowstorm.

Liberals, you gotta love them for their comedic relief.

Raggin' On The Trumpster

Please don't be confused by the Trumpathon. He can't win. His negatives are so high he'd have to climb a ladder, grab them and start a fire to get rid of them.

Donald Trump can't win---period.

Give him credit if you're on the Right. He started a movement. He said what those of us who are patriots believe. He started saying those things before the establishment had a clue. The Republicans we elected are losers. All they think about when they get out of bed in the morning is how I'm going to get re-elected. They could care less about the people.

Take some time and check out the net worth of every member of Congress and the Senate to see there net worth when they entered office and what it is now or when they leave office. It's a travesty.

The bottom line is this. In order for the Republicans to win the presidency they have to have a ticket composed of two people from Florida and Ohio. Without these two states they will lose. Trump is from New York. Who in their right mind thinks NY will go Republican.

My neighbor is a national pollster of great repute. He told me that Bush and Kasich absolutely hate each other; that neither one would serve on the same ticket. This leaves Rubio and Kasich in either position. This man still insists Kasich will be the nominee but I don't see it. However, he gets paid big bucks and who am I to doubt his veracity.

I've thought long and hard about Trump's popularity. He reminds me of popular songs from the past. Think about the Beatles singing 'I Wanna Hold Your Hand' from the Sixties. Kids of that time played that bit of music over and over. They played the disc so much that after awhile they couldn't stand it.
Trump would and will have the same effect.

Donald Trump's incessant bloviating would be worse than Hillary's cackling. Do we really want to listen to him tell us how great and wonderful he is for four years.

Let's cut to the chase. Donald Trump is a pompous ass. The American people do not want insiders from DC but do we really want someone who would bring on a war more quickly than the idiot we now have in office?

Words Of Wisdom From A Troll

CNSNews.com) - Rep. Rosa DeLauro (D-Conn.) told members of the House Thursday that a bill putting a moritorium on the funding of Planned Parenthood tells Americans, “forget your health, you can just die.”

It's not often I can one up a member of Congress but in this case I can. In the State of Texas there is not one, I repeat, not one mammogram unit in any Planned Parenthood facility. If you don't believe me you can look it up.

I sort of felt badly about calling Rosa DeLauro a troll. She isn't. She's flat out ugly.

Adios To Minnesota

My next door neighbor is a legend. Not only did he play football for the Ohio State Buckeye national championship teams in 1954 and 1957 he was a draftee of the Cleveland Browns. However, he opted to become an oral surgeon then moved on to facial surgeries; anything above the neck.

He numbers among his friends George H. Bush, John Boehner, Arnold Palmer and Jack Nicklaus and that's only the beginning.

Last year this man wanted to go to Minnesota with me to close up my lake place at Ten Mile Lake outside of Hackensack. Unfortunately, he suffers from stage IV cancer and had to opt out of the trip. This year he was feeling much better and we made the drive.

I always detest closing up the northern Minnesota lake place. Not so much because I love it. It's a pain in the ass shutting down the house, packing the car and getting the boat out of the water and driving it to the boat storage facility.

It was my intention to drive to Eau Claire, Wisconsin and bed down in a motel for the night. That's a ten and a half hour drive and more than enough for me. My buddy decided we should drive further. What did he have to worry about? I was doing the driving. So, we drove and we drove and we drove until I'd done the entire 17 hour trip. When we arrived at the cabin I literally crawled in the back door---with dry heaves.

My friend was looking forward to doing some fishing and having a boat and motor makes it that much easier except, the last person I let use it forgot to pull the plug on the boat. Not only that a flap on the cover was open. This occurred a month ago. As I pulled the entire boat cover back my eyes met the inside of my boat filled to the brim with God's water.

This meant both batteries, the one connected and my spare had been inundated for a month. Both were Lazarus dead with no resurrection possible. One hundred and thirteen dollars later we were on the lake to catch massive amounts of nothing. If you've read this blog before you know that fishing in my lake is like fishing in the Dead Sea.

Four days later we were ready to come back to Ohio. At five in the morning I heard a moaning and my name being called. I ran into the bedroom and saw my 78 year-old friend lying on the floor with blood oozing in every direction. He told me he was having a stroke. I called 911 and eventually had him transported to a hospital in Brainerd, Minnesota an hour away.

The stroke wasn't a stroke. At the time we thought he had a severe shoulder injury so began driving for Dublin, Ohio. The man was in complete agony all that day and the next. Thank God he played for Woody Hayes. He was tougher than tough.

When we arrived in Dublin he went to Dublin Methodist Hospital. His injury wasn't a shoulder or ribs. It wasn't a concussion or skull fracture, either. The man had a broken neck. Can you believe it? I transported a man with a crack between his 6th and 7th vertebrate and he survived.

This man is a real man. On the way home he said, "I can hardly wait to go back to the lake next year".
Can you believe it. This guy has been through something akin to having razor sharp swords run through his body and he's talking about a 17 hour drive to some god forsaken woods.

Adios, Minnesota. I hate you in winter and the mosquitos are a killer in summer. I'd sell the cabin except the Queen thinks it's the best spot on earth. And what the Queen wants the Queen gets.

I can hardly wait until next year and the experiences I'll endure. The way I figure it's time burned off in Purgatory.

Another White House Invitee


This Is A Clock?

Screen Shot 2015-09-17 at 1.43.39 PM

So, Obama has invited a 15 year old kid to the White House because school and police officials questioned whether or not the gizmo in the photo is a clock. Obama is making a hero out of the Muslim student by telling the world the little scamp is a victim of discrimination.

I thought there was a zero tolerance policy considering Columbine and every other slaughter brought on by freaky liberal democrat card carrying nitwits.

Now, if you were a teacher and a kid brought this contraption to class in a brief case would you soil your pants? I know I would.

Bill Gates and that other clown who started Facebook have also shown their disapproval of the entire scenario. Go figure. Oh yeah, they're also card carrying members of Obama's communist party so it goes with the territory. I can promise you this. If the kid was from a Republican family he'd now be in shackles.


Appendix: Following news that high school freshman Ahmed Mohamed brought a homemade clock which police described as a “hoax bomb” onto campus, police declined to file charges and President Obama reached and invited Mohamed to bring his clock and visit the White House. Contrast that with the experience of an unnamed elementary school student who was threatened with expulsion–and ultimately pulled from the school–for drawing a picture of a Ninja holding a gun. Or contrast Mohamed’s experience with that of the Washington state elementary school students who were suspended for bringing a Nerf gun to school.

Appendix: Who is Alex Stone? He’s the South Carolina 16-year-old who was arrested and suspended last year for writing a purely fictional story about a dinosaur in which he killed the prehistoric beast with a gun. Stone was a white kid.

There’s also the case of the five-year-old Pennsylvania girl who, in a debate at the bus stop, insisted that princess bubble-blowers are superior to Hello Kitty bubble guns.
When the princess bubble-blower girl suggested that the two friends test their claims by shooting each other with soapsuds, the barely-out-of-diapers five-year-old was accused of making a “terrorist threat,” mandated to attend counseling sessions with a therapist, and suspended for 10 days.

Appendix: In 2009, an 11-year-old student was arrested, thrown in jail, and charged with a third-degree felony for bringing a plastic butter knife to school.  That same year, an eight-year-old Massachusetts boy was mandated to have psychological counseling for drawing a picture of Jesus on the cross while in school.

Narcissist-in-Chief Says Americans, Not He, Are To Blame For The Poor Economy


Comments anyone.

Television Gadgets That Suck

There are some who are skeptical when it comes to buying items from TV ads. I'm one of those guys but I do it anyway.

There's be an ad playing lately selling the Swifty Sharp knife sharpener. Not only can you hone your knives to perfection the ad says it will also work on scissors and garden tools. It doesn't.

Once again, it took me $14.95 plus shipping to figure it out. I sort of assumed the Swifty ran on electrical power. It takes 4 AA batteries. I have more power in my hand than 4 AA batteries.

 I inserted and gave my fishing knife a rocking motion according to the directions. There was minimal pressure as the knife hit the grinding stone and then it happened. The Swifty stopped. The grinder came to a complete halt. The only thing to be heard was me swearing.

I can send it back but I'll have to pay more shipping. There is a box in the garage of things I've ordered over the years. It's a space taker. Someday, thousands of years from now all the crap I've purchased will be in a museum and labeled: 'Stupid things MJ Hawkeye bought'.

Did you buy one of those plastic pillow shaped bags water filled? If so, then welcome to the club. It's placed inside your pillow to simulate the 'as cool as the other side of the pillow' effect. It's in the garage now, too. I think the original water is still in it along with whatever algae and bacteria has built up over the years.

In 1992 I began developing one of those tires around the waist. A secretary at my company told me about a waist band, battery operated, that sends constant electric shocks to your waist thus eliminating ugly fat. After a month of use the waist band found itself in the garage. I keep thinking I can pawn it off to other suckers. That one was $25.95.

As a practical joke I bought my son an electric ear cleaner and got one for myself as a bonus gift. Those two are still in the box because I was too embarrassed to give it to him. Besides, a Q-tip or hair pin works just was well.

Word to the wise; never watch television commercials after midnight. You're bank account won't last a month.

I am and continue to be a salesman's best friend.

Devo: Worse Than Disgusting

Devo's Jerry Casale sparks outrage for his Twin Towers-themed wedding cake Jerry Casale started the singing group Devo in the early 70's. Surely you remember such songs like 'Whip it'.

Casale was recently married. As a matter of fact the wedding took place on 9/11. Now for the disgusting part. The wedding cakes were in the shape of the Twin Towers. To add more insult the cute couple gave out box cutters as party gifts.


Iowa Falls To # 2 In The Polls

No, silly goslings, Iowa wasn't #1 in the football polls nor any other sports poll. But, was it 2013 or 2014, they were the number one party college in the nation as stated by Playboy.

The Hawks are number 2 followed by Florida State. Tulane and the Univ. of Illinois. I wonder what happened to the University of Wisconsin. They fell all the way to #7

The new party monster is Ohio University located in the southeastern Ohio community of Athens. It has a beautiful setting in the Appalachian foothills but other than that there isn't a heck of a lot to do but drink and tip over Guernsey cows.

Ohio U. is most notorious for its Halloween fires and vandalism. Kids from other Ohio high schools, mostly, come in droves to get drunk, stupid then arrested to celebrate this annual event.

I was trying to recall what we men folk did at Coe College in the Sixties to leave our mark. I think it had something to do with every 'manboy' begin drinking at noon on Wednesday(no classes on that day-it was supposedly for studying). As soon as the sun went down we all dressed in a belt and cowboy shoes holding swords made out of cardboard and swarmed the Commons screaming incoherent shrieks and waling.

Of course, the sorority girls housed in one building cheered wildly. Ah, those were the good ol' days.

Nobody was torched, no buildings went up in flames and the ladies had a good view of who they considered dateable material.

Top 10 Party schools

  1. Ohio University
  2. University of Iowa
  3. Florida State University
  4. Tulane University
  5. University of Illinois
  1. University of Texas
  2. Syracuse University
  3. University of Wisconsin
  4. University of Mississippi
  5. University of Michigan

Clueless Obama Promotes Solar Panels For Alaskan Community Of 3,000

On December 22, the winter solstice, the sun rises in Kotzebue at 10:12 am and sets at 3:42 pm – for a total of just five and a half hours of sunlight. During the 34 days between December 3rd and January 6th, Kotzebue’s days are less than six hours long.

Is Obama a moron or what? Solar panels for a town that receives a minimal amount of sunlight.

Tim Tebow, Very Classy

Tim Tebow was cut by the Philadelphia Eagles in his quest for a position on the team. I've come to expect class from Tebow over the years. Unlike many in the sports arena you'll never see him spouting unprintable expletives, drugging or banging his girlfriend's head against a brick wall. He's a good guy and he's a Christian.

The media has had a field day making fun of his Christian principles and the example he has given to the public, especially young people. In my opinion he should be put high on a sports pedestal.

After Mr. Tebow was cut he left this message on his twitter account. As I stated, a classy guy.

Thanks and Coach Kelly for giving me the opportunity to play the game I love! Romans 8:28

The Magic Words That Exposed Planned Parenthood

David Daleiden says his investigators at the pro-life Center for Medical Progress were able to gain access to top Planned Parenthood officials by using “the magic words.” “It was definitely surprising to myself and to some of the other investigators on the team that when our investigators basically said two things to Planned Parenthood representatives — number one, you know, ‘We love abortion, we think what you do is great, thank you,’ and number two, ‘We want to harvest your baby parts and sell them, and pay you money in exchange for that,’ ” he said. “Those two statements were like the magic words that got us in the door.

Did you know the Republicans have leaders referred to by the lovely Michelle Malkin as 'Crap Weasels'? I' referring to Boehner, McConnell and the tools who support them.

There's a guy out there in hashtag land who has come up with sarcastic tags for these losers by the name of Thomas H Crown.
So Mitch McConnell can be Majority Leader and help the Democrats to victory.
So John Boehner can fund President Obama's usurpation of power.
So Planned Parenthood can continue using tax dollars to butcher the unborn and sell their parts for profit.
So Fortune 100 Companies can be shielded from the free market.
So yet another Clinton or Bush or whatever can be President.
So Supreme Court rulings that clearly exceed any possible basis in the Constitution can be quietly accepted.
So that we continue to turn perfectly useful corn into energy-inefficient and starvation-causing ethanol.
So the regulatory state will continue to grow without even pausing.
So Christians can be forced to materially cooperate with evil as long as Wal-Mart is happy.
So my children can be forced to learn how all the heroes of the twentieth century were Democrats.
So every bank about the community bank size is too big to fail.
So every major investment firm is protected from any downside risk to gambling with shareholder money.
So that Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac may live forever.
So that Iran will be in a position to destroy Israel utterly within a handful of years.
So that China will have de facto hegemonic control over East Asia. Or a war. Whatever.
 So that our immigration laws are merely code for "whatever the Chamber of Commerce wants."
So conservative Republicans can be called racists basically whenever.
So that John McCain will be a Senator until 2136.
So that one million children, give or take, will be aborted per year, and I'll learn about it in fundraising letters.

On Being A Wonderful Husband

Today is the Queens 68th birthday. It's quite easy to remember. It's the anniversary of the day Germany invaded Poland to start WW II.

My bride had arisen before I so when I got up I made the bed. She came up later and thanked me. And I said, "No problem. It's your birthday". She responded with, "Well, I can hardly wait until next year". I think it was a dig.

Our eight year old granddaughter came to visit us recently and spent a few nights in our home.
My wife came across her her making a list and wondered about its contents. The kid responded with, "Well, you have quite a few nice items in here and I want to make sure I get what I want after you die". Say what you want the kid has moxie.

Let's hope we see a few more birthdays before then.

As White House Spokesman, Josh Ernest, Said Today, "No One Is Above The Law"

The White House has a unique way of making a statement. Josh Earnest was speaking about the woman in Kentucky who refused to issue marriage licenses to gays. Josh put his foot in his mouth. He forgot to mention, no one is above the law unless their names are Harry Reid, Eric Holder, Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton

51% Of Immigrants On Public Welfare


About 51% of immigrant-led households receive at least one kind of welfare benefit, including Medicaid, food stamps, school lunches and housing assistance, compared to 30% for native-led households, according to the report from the Center for Immigration Studies, a group that advocates for lower levels of immigration.

What's Up With People In India

Four or five years ago I was visiting my son and his wife. I don't recall the exact conversation but it had something to do with religion and India.

I made a comment, "What can one expect from people who worship monkeys and cows"? My daughter in law gave me one of those stares that would kill. It's as though I said I wanted her in my bedroom for fun and frivolity.

Admittedly, the Indian culture has been one of consternation for me over my lifetime. It's not that the dot head thing bothers me. I've always found it unrealistic that the caste system is still in place.

I should be more understanding because every country and society has a system of their own. Ours is based on race and economics. One of my students, in history class in 1984, told me there was a Black class system. She was light skinned and said that dark skinned Blacks were frowned upon by lighter ones.

I came across a story that illustrates the oddity and inanity of the Indian culture but from my viewpoint. It might be one that you agree with, too.

So, the story goes like this and I quote:

"A 24-year-old Indian woman was forcibly married and gang-raped as a brutal 'honor punishment' after her brother eloped with his girlfriend, it emerged today.

The woman - who cannot be named for her own safety - was told she would wed the husband of her brother's new girlfriend as 'revenge' for the couple's adultery".
Does this seem odd to you especially in the 21st century? It does me but I don't know why.
In the US the Supreme Court has allowed marriage between people of the same sex which has opened the door for bestiality. I'm not sure if it's okay to do it with a female sheep but all bets are off.

Is Hillary Suffering From Alzheimer's

Emails released by the State Department on Monday raise troubling questions about former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and her ability to lead the country and make it great again. Clinton, who will celebrate her 68th birthday next month, has been known to make embarrassing memory-related gaffes, and had trouble remembering the things she said and did as secretary of state, the emails show.
In an email dated November 13, 2010, Hillary asked a State Department aide whether she gave an interview to a certain Lebanese newspaper, apparently after reading about it in her daily press briefing. In fact, the interview occurred just three days earlier, on November
