Would You Like Some OJ With That Race Baiting?

OJ of the Oval Office
If you've been a conservative who has ever spoken his or her mind about our current president, you've undoubtedly been treated to the mindless, knee jerk reaction of a dull witted liberal (but I repeat myself), that the only reason you oppose Barack Obama is 'because he's black'. The recent 20 year anniversary of the slow moving, white Bronco (no! Not John Elway!*), got me to thinking about O.J. Simpson. OJ was a very popular fellow. A football star in college, OJ played in the NFL for nine years: eight with the Buffalo Bills, one with the S.F. 49er's. He won the Heisman Trophy, among other awards, played in 6 NFL Pro Bowls, was drafted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame, became a commentator on Monday Night Football, acted and starred in numerous motion pictures...oh, and did I mention that OJ is black??? I only mention that, insomuch, that I don't think of OJ as a "black" NFL player, a "black" actor or a "black" murderer, any more than I think of George Hamilton as a "chestnut brown" actor or John Boehner as the "orange" Speaker of the House. Their race and color is irrelevant. 

So, here's OJ, a black man, a household name in most of America, well liked and popular, whose star was eclipsed suddenly because of something that he allegedly did. It wasn't his race that people took exception with, it was his actions, or at least those that people imagined he did. 

Why can't you modern liberals conceivably apply the same standard to the OJ of the Oval Office? Conservatives oppose the exact same policies when espoused by Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi, and Harry Reid and they are white, orange and gray, respectively. Still, the same old, tired canard about race pops up in nearly every discussion. Can't we just 'cut to the chase', as it were, and get to the part where you have absolutely no argument apart from the race card? It would save ever so much time and then we could reserve the term "racist" for those few despicable folk who truly deserve it, and not just people who disagree with you politically.

Please Don’t Feed The Animals

MINNEHAHA PARK—The World’s Most Dangerous Community Organizer spoke to a handpicked contingent of bored, phone-gazing millennials on Thursday.

“Let me tell you something, I’ve been really looking forward to getting out of D.C.,” TWMDCO said. “Our agenda’s still a little loose. You know I might pop in for some ice cream or visit a small business. I don’t know.  I always tease them [the Secret Service] I’m like a caged bear and every once in a while I break loose.  I’m just going to make it up as I go along.  I’m feeling super loose today.  So you don’t know what I might do. You don’t know what I might do.  Who knows?”

In the deep recesses of his narcissistic mind comparing himself to a caged bear connotes a fearsome creature, but to the rest of us poor schmoes all we envision is a pitiful creature relegated to wearing silly ruffles riding a ridiculously undersized tricycle.

Vladimir Putin, Bashar al-Assad, Hamid Karzai, Kim Jong-Un, ISIS and all the other bad actors in the world see him in ruffles too.

Today, Clinton “mechanic” George Stephanopoulos poked at the caged bear declaring that the American public doesn’t support his foreign policy.  “George,” the ruffled tricycle-riding laughingstock chuckled, “there’s going to be times when the world is messy.”

I’m With The Dog On This

Ann Coulter penned a spoof about soccer yesterday that I’m certain left many soccer fans feeling butt-hurt.  She fell short of explaining, as Bobby’s dad did in King of the Hill, that “soccer was invented by European ladies to keep them busy while their husbands did the cooking.”

Honestly, I can’t get into the soccer futbol thing.  I’ve tried.  Lord knows I’ve tried.  Team USA is in the so-called Group of Death.  Group of Death?  C’mon man.  Every time one of these guys trips on a blade of grass they roll around on the turf writhing in pain.  What a bunch of babies.

I tried again today to watch a game starring Team USA.  I know what to do when a real football game is on.  Invite a bunch of friends over to pig out on chips, burgers, wings—you know—party chow.

What does one do for a soccer game that airs at noon on a Thursday?  I had Chinese delivered:  hot and spicy shrimp, lobster fried rice, teriyaki chicken on a stick and Sa Cha chicken.

I fluffed up the pillows, put some of the tasty morsels in a bowl for Sophie my furkid to partake of and proceeded to watch men getting drenched in a torrential downpour kick the ball to and fro for an hour-and-a-half and once, only once, did the pretty little ball go in the pretty little net at the end of the rain-soaked field for a goooooooaaaaaalllllll.

Not even “Teddy Goalsevelt” could whip up any excitement in me for today’s game.  How is it even possible that you can lose a game and still win?  That’s f’d up.

I’m in the camp with Triumph the Insult Comic Dog who reported from the streets of Queens, NY, "Tens of thousands of Africans, Europeans and South Americans are converging in Brazil to create a flash mob of horrible BO.  The rest of the world calls it futbol.  In America, we call it a fucking waste of time…You have to love soccer:  the excitement of minimal contact, the thrill of low scoring. If you like watching porn in reverse, this sport is for you.”

There's Something About Wal-Mart...

...that drives the libs crazy!
Image and video hosting by TinyPic 
I was set upon by a couple of Wal-Mart haters on Twitter a week or so ago. These guys get really wound up in their vitriolic denunciations of poor old Sam Walton's little retail endeavor. Thinking back, I think the first time I ever heard of Wal-Mart was in a story in the Reader's Digest. (My mom used to subscribe).

There were some stories about how the evil corporate bosses of Wal-Mart would target Small Town USA, shop the competition to find what prices were being charged and then come into town and undercut everyone's prices, until all the small businesses went out of business, and then, when no one had any income left to purchase their products, Wal-Mart would pull up stakes and move to another town, leaving a devastated economy and a ghost town on Main Street.

How rude! Of course, many of the smaller businesses provided services that the big box store couldn't. Unfortunately, they would too often find themselves answering questions about their merchandise, that big box clerks had no idea about, and then, the prospective customers would drive down the street to Wal-Mart and buy the merchandise at a lower price. It's hard enough for a small business to keep their doors open without spending time dispensing free advice to their competitor's customers.

I got to thinking about this the other day, when I recalled a lumber yard here in Stockton, "Hank and Tony's". They were a fixture around here back when my family moved to town. I'd see their advertising year in and year out, and I'd drive by their lumber yard off Harding Way quite frequently. I Googled them to see if they were still in business (I hadn't heard of them in years) and there was a phone listed at a residential address, and the lumber yard on Harding is probably a liquor store or strip mall today.

But, there are at least two Lowe's and two Home Depots in Stockton. I've been doing a little project or two and have hit up all four of them in the last couple of months, to find necessary supplies. Who mourns for Hank and Tony's? There are big box lumber stores all over town, but who mourns the little Mom and Pop hardware stores? Book stores? Most of the little ones went out of business long ago and even some of the bigger chains like Borders couldn't cut it. Where is the protest against that 'predatory' Amazon putting book stores out of business?

Jewelry stores? Surely there were Mom and Pop jewelry stores before Zanes and Kay's and Rogers, corner lot car dealers put out of business by mega multi-dealerships, shade tree mechanics put out of business by Midas, and Sears, and Pep Boys... so, why the maniacal outrage over Wal-Mart?

If I had to guess, I would say that it is the non-union status of Wal-Mart that gets liberal panties in a wad. They pay good wages and benefits. Whenever a new Wal-Mart opens up, people line up around the block to apply for the openings. But, they pay less than union wages for similar jobs, which allows Wal-Mart to keep their prices lower than union shops. If Wal-Mart unionized tomorrow, I'd guess liberals would be singing their praises*.

Business who can cut their costs due to economy of scale or innovation will prosper. If the services you provide in addition to your merchandise are sufficiently valuable that your customers are willing to pay more, you will survive. There are no guarantees. If you want a guarantee, buy a toaster.

*and not just Hillary Clinton, who, to her embarrassment, sat on their governing board a while back.

Update: Economic illiteracy may be another reason for the unreasonable fear of Wal-Mart. During the aforementioned Twitter discussion, one of the Haters sent me a graphic which proclaimed : "Even if you don't shop there, Wal-Mart still gets your money." And the first thing on the list was "tax breaks" for CEO bonuses. If you are a socialist and believes everything belongs to the government, then allowing Wal-Mart CEOs to keep more of what they earned, is taking money away from you

Update II: Just saw another one! Unbelievable! Those Wal-Mart Derangement Syndrome folk just keep coming! The latest chart shows, among other things, the average starting salary of a Wal-Mart employee against how much Sam Walton's heirs are getting per year. Gee! Ya think owning the company might be a little more profitable than working for it?? Let's get some ketchup haters in here too! How much is the average starting salary of a Heinz employee compared to what Teresa Heinz Kerry pulls in every year?

Update III: Another example for all you Wal-Mart haters: Paris Hilton.  Paris is an heir to the Hilton hotel fortune. Anyone care to guess how her annual income compares to the starting salary of a Hilton hotel employee? Should we be outraged that Paris is paid more than the maid than cleans her hotel suite?? A little Paris hating, anyone???

Fun fact: The party whose followers bleat loudest about "loopholes" is the party that controlled one or both houses of Congress for about the last sixty years and personally wrote most of those "loopholes".

BTW, Fishersville Mike points out a great critique and fact check by Wal-Mart of a NYT editorial.

Chuck Todd: The Game Of Thronesniffers

Today, the results of a new poll from The Wall Street Journal and NBC News were released.  Ordinarily, this would be a non-event.

What made today’s polling so significant that it prompted a Drudge siren headline was the fact the NBC/Comcast thronesniffer, Chuck Todd, breathlessly declared the Obama presidency to be over.

The approval rating for The World’s Most Dangerous Community Organizer has dropped to 41 percent, a majority of Americans disapprove of his handling of foreign policy issues, he has lost support from the Hispanic community and Americans actually think his administration is less competent than the Bush White House post-Hurricane Katrina.

Here’s a partial transcript from Wednesday’s Morning Joe show:

TODD: It is. It's cratering. I mean, if you think about it, let's go back to September, Syria. Then you have the crisis in Ukraine and then you had the situation with the Bergdahl trade, then we can talk about the Iranian negotiations, we can talk about the Middle East flaring up, and now the situation with Iraq. Everything is a negative, and these are now creating a situation, lowest ever, lowest job rating, lowest approval rating among foreign policy.


GUTHRIE: Let's show the poll number you call the dagger. "Can the President lead and get the job done?" 54% say no.

TODD: And this is what's amazing here. This is as if the public is saying, "Hey, buddy, your presidency is over. You may not believe it is, but your ability to lead and convince us that you have the right policies anymore, we're not listening." That's what that poll question says. That's the most dangerous poll question in this—in this survey for the President.

‘Ol Remus from The Woodpile Report has some sage words for Chuckie that may help him grasp the concept behind the contempt:
“It comes down to this: we know what we are to them, enemies to be punished.  Their words.  They say they don't want to quell anger.  They say they're itching for a fight.  They say they'll hit back twice as hard. These are their terms. They believe, actually believe, their insults and libel and threats should go unanswered.  If treating the people as enemies is proper then punishing the people is proper.  And so they do.  They believe these things because resistance is what they fear, so resistance is what they see.  But something far tougher than resistance is emerging.  It's everywhere and nowhere, it's self-assembling, it's committed to restoring a legitimate Constitutional republic and therefore every bit the enemy they imagine it to be. They're looking for noise and drama. They're fools. They merely need to look around.  It's already upon them.”

Second Annual Paul Revere Awards

Last year at this time, I decided to honor a few of my favorite bloggers with an award.  Not just any award mind you, but a big ‘ol heavy bust mounted on an exquisitely carved mahogany wood pedestal with engraved brass nameplates.  No plastic.  That’s not how the Curmudgeon rolls.

I couldn’t afford to hire a focus group to decide who should be honored.  That would involve providing them with a glass of sweet tea and a slice of pizza.  The expenses would cut into my award budget.  Times are hard you know what with the most excellent Obama Recovery and all.  So, I consulted a most reliable source to assist in choosing this year’s winner of the Paul Revere Award.

I chose Paul Revere as the icon for the award because he was an American patriot whose legendary “Midnight Ride” to warn the colonists of Massachusetts before the historic battles at Lexington and Concord played a vital role in America’s struggle to gain independence from Britain.

Paul Revere was not born to wealth—he was an ordinary man who lived an extraordinary life. Revere was a patriot, a businessman, an involved citizen, and a popular and well-respected member of his community.

An obituary in the Boston Intelligence commented, "Seldom has the tomb closed upon a life so honorable and useful."

These bloggers are but a few of the brave and resolute men and women who hold down jobs and raise their families while standing guard over liberty. They don’t have big advertising on their sites nor do they have a bevy of contributing writers.  They pore over information and bring their opinions to their readers in order to inform and warn.

They have the keen zest of the citizen whose patriotism is of the lusty type that causes them to take an active part in politics.  They add humor and common sense.  They deserve to be recognized.

I will be contacting each winner via email to provide them with a personalized badge which they can place on their website if they so chose.

Thank you to each of them for all that they do and may God bless them.

Overpower The System Until It Literally Collapses

More than 90,000 children, mostly from Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador, will be caught this year, and more than 140,000 will be apprehended in 2015, according to an internal U.S. Customs and Border Protection memo.

Democrats intractably continue to demand a path to citizenship for the nearly 12 million unauthorized immigrants illegal aliens undocumented Democrats who are currently residing in our country and bring to an end strict deportation requirements.

The World’s Most Dangerous Community Organizer and incessant golf course denizen issued an executive action in June 2012 allowing hundreds of thousands of illegals who came here before the age of 16 to remain here untouched by immigration laws that the federal government refused to enforce essentially putting out a welcome mat for Central American women who mistake the U.S. for a brother-in-law with a job and a sofa.

Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson parroted White House talking points in testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee, “The situation is motivated primarily by the conditions in the countries that they're leaving—El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala.  Violence, poverty—I believe that is principally what is motivating the situation."

The unvarnished truth is they chose this particular time to migrate to the United States to take advantage of the "new" U.S. "law" that grants a "free pass" or permit (referred to as "permisos") being issued by the U.S. government to female adult Other Than Mexicans traveling with minors and to Unaccompanied Children.

The information is apparently common knowledge in Central America and is spread by word of mouth, and international and local media. A high percentage of the subjects interviewed stated their family members in the U.S. urged them to travel immediately, because the United States government was only issuing immigration "permisos" until the end of June 2014.  The issue of "permisos" was the main reason provided by 95% of the interviewed subjects.

Today it emerged that despite the inundation of diseased women and children Vice President Joe Biden believes more, not fewer, immigrants should come to America.

Speaking to a National Association of Manufacturers’ crowd this week he called for a 'constant, unrelenting stream' of new immigrants—'not dribbling (but) significant flows,' to bolster the national economy, The Hill reported.

‘We need it badly from a purely — purely economic point of view,’ Mr Biden said, The Hill reported.

Later, on Twitter, he wrote: “The final thing we need to do together is pass immigration reform…We need it badly. -VP at manufacturing summit.”

Neil Munro reports that Plugs will fly into Guatemala on June 20 to meet with the presidents of Guatemala and El Salvador, plus a top official from Honduras, and to tell the 28 million people in those countries that they can’t migrate to the United States, a White House official said Sunday.

“Anytime the administration sends Joe Biden to solve a problem, it’s clear evidence that the administration doesn’t see it as a problem worth solving,” the aide said, noting that Obama has not spoken in public about the crisis.

The administration has turned to the Department of Defense to use three military bases in California, Texas and Oklahoma to temporarily house other children once they are transferred to HHS care.

Baltimore may soon be the home to hundreds of illegal immigrant children who were taken into custody at the border.

WBFF-TV reports that the former Social Security building, which has been vacant for months, could be designated to house hundreds of children crossing the border illegally with no adult supervision.

According to the New York Daily News, those who became "state citizens" under a new New York state bill would "be able to vote in state and local elections and run for state office. They could get a driver’s license, a professional license, Medicaid and other benefits controlled by the state. Immigrants would also be eligible for in-state tuition and financial aid."

Good.  Our betters should be confronted with and forced to cope with the havoc they wreak.  There should be no escape for them.  We Kulaks always have to feel the pain of their assinine policies.  The consequences should fall on their shoulders where it so richly belongs.

A still better relocation scheme would be to load them up and take them directly to the front doors of the homes of Harry Reid, Chuck Schumer, Dick Durbin and Nancy Pelosi.  TV camera crews should be present the moment they open their doors to record their shocked facial expressions and their adamant declaration that “they can’t stay here!”

Happy Father's Day

Teetering On The Edge (Warning: Graphic Image)

The World’s Most Dangerous Community Organizer was handed a mostly peaceful Iraq.

A few days ago two reporters with the Associated Press, Hamza Hendawi and Bassen Mroue, filed a report about the fear and sectarianism behind the utter collapse of the Iraqi army.

The Western press is far too squeamish to publish reports about the savagery of the animals that inhabit the Middle and Near East.  We are a merciful and peace-loving people and as such find it difficult to understand the barbarous dogma of Islam. 

Hendawi and Mroue’s accounting describes a chilling video set to what they described as “lilting religious hymns” in which Islamic barbarians knock on the door of a Sunni police major in the dead of night.  The moment he opens the door he is blindfolded and cuffed.  Then they carve off his head with a knife in his own bedroom.

In an effort to show the world they will stop at nothing to achieve their end game, the blood-thirsty Neanderthals tweeted an image of the officer’s decapitated head with the revolting message, “This is our ball.  It is made of skin #World Cup.”

The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) propaganda video includes footage of “drive-by shootings of off-duty security personnel and the killings of captured army soldiers.  In one scene, fighters masquerading as soldiers set up a checkpoint on a main highway, stopped cars and killed Shiites and security personnel by the side of the road.”

Fighters abducted a Sahwa commander and his two sons and forced them to dig their own graves in the desert before they slit their throats.

The rest of the world is not as naïve as Westerners are.  Our press mollifies the masses by pixelating the videos and photographs of beheadings and the lopping off of hands and feet or hangings and stonings so that there is merely a gulp in reaction to them.  We should be exposed to the raw images so that outrage in its fullest form can be felt, not fear.  These filthy animals should fear the prospect of being vaporized and rotting in Jahannam.

Instead, we are subjected to a presidency that has consistently and deliberately weakened our nation and cleared the way for the American homeland to be threatened again.

Don’t agree with me?  Then consider carefully this fact:   The Wall Street Journal and the Times of London reported on June 12th that the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) has deployed units of its elite Quds Force to help Iraqi troops halt the advances of ISIL and ISIS forces.  Iranian security forces have said that two battalions of the Quds Force have come to the aid of Maliki’s government.  The ISIS assault may be just what Iran needs to turn Iraq into a puppet.

Troopathon VII

Nothing brings a serviceman or woman more joy than knowing that someone back home is thankful and thinking of them while they are on deployment.  You can help make the daily routine of our 33,000 troops putting their lives on the line in Afghanistan a little more bearable and thank them for their services all at the same time.

We've heard from countless members of the Armed Forces about items that the military does not provide, are hard to come by and they really appreciate getting. That's why Move America Forward has responded and compiled care packages that contain these goods as a way of saying "thank you" for their sacrifices and courage.

Each care package will include a personal message written by you where you can express your gratitude to our military.

Troopathon is a once-a-year month long campaign.  This year’s Troopathon begins on June 25, 2014 at 1PM Pacific time, 4PM Eastern live from the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library & Museum in Simi Valley, California. The webcast will be available on www.troopathon. If you miss the 8 hour broadcast you can still find videos and information on the website right now, leading up to, and after the show.

As in years past, we are partnering with The late great Andrew Breitbart was a constant co-host of the Troopathon and it was a charity and cause close to his heart.

While our Troopathon campaign culminates with the big event on June 25th, it is a month-long drive and we need people to donate today.  Our troops need support now.

Move America Forward is a 501(C)3 so all care package donations are tax deductible.

You can purchase a care package by clicking on the link, make a donation through PayPal or mail your personal check made out to MOVE AMERICA FORWARD at 8795 Folsom Blvd. #103, Sacramento, CA 95826.

Obama’s Gitmo Dream. America’s Nightmare.

I have held my tongue throughout the Bowe Bergdahl calamity.  There is a shitstorm brewing. 

Placing his political agenda above the lives of those Americans who are going to be killed in Afghanistan by these freed Gitmo detainees. Placing his political agenda above the lives of those Americans who were killed searching for the traitor and deserter Bergdahl. Placing his political agenda yet again above national security. One might almost get the idea that part of his political agenda is to weaken U.S. national security.
Obama ignored chances to rescue Bergdahl on the ground because he WANTED a terror trade to help close down Guantanamo Bay…
Terror came to America once then again in Boston.  This president has set the alarm on an unforgiving clock.  One year from now, or sooner, the battlefield against terror will widen.  May God have mercy on us all.
I cannot describe my outrage.  Instead, a picture is worth a thousand of my words.

The Movie Critics Can’t Stop Talking About

If the scandal sheets like National Enquirer are correct (it’s possible given the fact that the rag got it right when they scorched John Edwards), Michelle O will be settling down in D.C. with the girls and her mother while The World’s Most Dangerous Community Organizer will “settle in his native Hawaii, where he’ll live with longtime pal” Bobby Titcomb who was arrested in an undercover prostitution bust in Honolulu in April 2011.

So, if The High Priestess of School Lunches divorces ‘Ol Jug Ears, what will she do with her time?

Tongues started wagging when Keith Koffler, veteran White House reporter and proprietor of White House Dossier wrote:
“Look out. First Lady Michelle Obama might just run for Senate from Illinois in 2016.” 
“How do I know? She’s raised her profile a lot, she’ll have pressure from Democrats to get in and pick up a GOP seat, and her own strong commitment to left wing values will help impel her to make the race—to continue to ‘make a difference.’”
He kicked it up a notch with his piece in the Opinion Section of Reuters.  Then Sally Kohn opined.
“Should Michelle Obama choose to run, she would be a formidable candidate in every way, from public speaking to fundraising to policy to media and more. But either way, just the fact that anyone is speculating sends a flattering signal to a beloved first lady who America would clearly like to keep in the public eye.”
Oh, Sally, bless your heart.  Beloved First Lady?  I’m throwing the bullshit flag on ya.

Remember when the New Nefertiti of the Windy City on the campaign trail in Madison, Wisconsin said this, “And let me tell you something—for the first time in my adult lifetime, I am really proud of my country.  And not just because Barack has done well, but because I think people are hungry for change.  And I have been desperate to see our country moving in that direction and just not feeling so alone in my frustration and disappointment.”

Appearing on The O’Reilly Factor, Juan Williams fired off this comment.  "She's got the Stokely Carmichael in a designer dress thing going.  Her instinct is to start with this ‘Blame America’, ‘I’m the victim’.  If that stuff starts to come out people will go bananas.  She’ll go from being the new Jackie O to something of an albatross.”

I’d like to go back to what our LGBT friend Sally Kohn said about Lady M’s formidability on policy. “Should Michelle Obama choose to run, she would be a formidable candidate in every way, from public speaking to fundraising to policy to media and more.” [Emphasis mine].

Recently, The High Priestess of School Lunches defended the USDA rules she championed, telling Congress, “The last thing that we can afford to do right now is play politics with our kids’ health. It’s unacceptable to me not just as First Lady, but as a mother.”

Amanda Radke wrote:
“However, the changes the First Lady is pushing on public schools don’t apply to her daughters Malia and Sasha, who attend a swanky private school that is exempt. In fact, the Obama girls reportedly are served foods not allowed on public school lunch menus; this includes foods like meatball subs, ice cream novelties, deviled egg salad, barbecued chicken wings, barbecued sliders, all natural beef nachos, baked three-cheese lasagna, pepperoni flatbread pizzas, cheese quesadillas, and chicken curry.”
Some kids even tweeted photos of their stomach-turning school lunches.

The Hypocrisy Meter blows up when you read the menu from just one of the State Dinners at the White House:  arugula with onion seed vinaigrette, red lentil soup with fresh cheese, roasted potato dumplings with tomato chutney, chick peas and okra, green curry prawns, collard greens with coconut aged basmati, pumpkin pie tart, pear tatin, whipped cream and caramel sauce, petit fours, cashew brittle, pecan pralines, passion fruit and vanilla gelees and chocolate dipped fruit.  Is it any wonder she has such a ginormous ba-donk-a-donk posterior?

When she starts talking like she's Gandhi, the overheated Left start dreaming of their dynasty.  We’ve seen this movie before.

Seven months before the 2012 general election at a “Bring Your Kids to Work” day event, the Wookiee answered a child’s question about her interest in running for president.  "Absolutely not. No.”

"Being president is a really hard job and it’s an important job," she said. "And when my husband is running for president, we’re right in there; we’re serving, too.  And I think that once his terms are over, we’ll go on to do other important things—because there are so many ways that you can help this country and the world, even if you’re not president of the United States."

"And I think one of the things you learn about yourself as you get older are what are your strengths and what are your interests.  And for me it’s other stuff that is not being the president. So I probably won’t run. But that’s a great question."

Now, here’s what The Insufferable Airhorn told ABC’s Kelly Ripa when she asked, "In 10 years from now, if Mrs. Obama turns to you and announces that she wants to run for office, what would your honest reaction be?"
"I would say, 'Where did you take my wife?  I was sure that there had been an alien body-snatching going on. One thing I can promise you is that Michelle will not run for office."
You forgot to add “PERIOD” there buddy.

One final thought, in her 1985 Princeton senior thesis entitled Princeton-Educated Blacks and the Black Community, we can look through the window of her bias wherein she scolds universities as being designed to cater socially and academically to whites.

Affirmative action eclipsed racial diversity.  Her thesis’ suppositional conclusion condemned other black alumni at Princeton because they identified with inclusive American culture more than they valued the color of their skin.

We were fooled and made a fool.  We’ve seen this movie before.  Have we learned nothing?

Normandy: The 6th Of June

Normandy's cliffs are still littered with gun emplacements and other heart-rending reminders of the invasion that freed a continent including the white headstones of thousands of fallen American troops who fought against tyranny.

Today amid the stillness, it is disquieting to imagine that above the cliffs of Omaha Beach, the Germans had at least 85 heavy weapons and machine guns trained on the beaches below that could rain down about 100,000 rounds per minute cutting our boys to ribbons.

Ernie Pyle, the Pulitzer Prize winning war correspondent for Scripps-Howard, was walking along the beach and noticed something in the sand.
“The strong swirling tides of the Normandy coast line shifted the contours of the sandy beach as they moved in and out. They carried soldier’s bodies out to sea, and later they returned them. They covered the corpses of heroes with sand, and then in their whims they uncovered them.”
“As I plowed out over the wet sand, I walked around what seemed to be a couple of pieces of driftwood sticking out of the sand. But they weren’t driftwood. They were a soldier’s two feet. He was completely covered except for his feet; the toes of his GI shoes pointed towards the land he had come so far to see, and which he saw so briefly.”
It has been 30 years since President Ronald Reagan commemorated the 60th anniversary of D-Day.  Following his speech at Point du Hoc, he spoke at the Omaha Beach Memorial to honor those who died there saying, “…We can only honor them by rededicating ourselves to the cause for which they gave a last full measure of devotion.”

“Today we do rededicate ourselves to that cause. And at this place of honor, we're humbled by the realization of how much so many gave to the cause of freedom and to their fellow man.”

President Stompy Feet will commemorate the 70th anniversary of D-Day amid his squabble with Putin.  In light of his disdain for America’s military albeit the VA scandal and the 5-for-1 trade of high-ranking Taliban commanders for a “warrior of Islam” deserter, I am glad that the brave heroes who are resting peacefully beneath those white headstones cannot see the dishonor this president has brought upon America or know the cowardice of the man who currently occupies the Oval Office.

Ten Years Since Our Nation Mourned His Death

Today marks the 10th anniversary of the passing of America’s greatest president.

In this photo taken by AP photographer Mark J. Terrill, a still-grieving Nancy Reagan places 10 white roses on the headstone of her beloved Ronnie.  She has visited her husband's grave every year on the anniversary of his death.

Mrs. Reagan turns 93 on Friday.  In a statement she said, “I still feel his presence every day and often find him in my dreams at night.”

I wish I could give her a loving hug and tell her our nation dreams of him as well and misses his presence every day.

This tiny, frail woman seated in a wheelchair evoked such emotion in me.  It took a few minutes to wipe away the tears.

Ronnie awaits your arrival Nancy.  There will be a magnificent celebration in Heaven the moment you go home.

This Is Why We Sleep Well At Night Said No One Ever

The Polish tabloid Fakt ran pics and video footage of The World’s Most Dangerous Community Organizer working out at the Holmes Place Marriott gym in Warsaw.

When I saw the photos I nearly pissed myself laughing.  Hey world, I thought, look at our strong president.  Feast your eyes upon this magnificent specimen of American beefcake.

US security officials have since verified the video’s authenticity, and are understood to be investigating the incident. They have insisted it was not a security breach.

We can only hope our metrosexual Preezy of the United Steezy didn’t break a nail during his girly-man work out.

Next time, for the sake of the country, I hope that security suspends the policy of letting gym rats stay while he “works out”.  The embarrassment is too much to bear.
