Political Correctness Run Amuck

Beachwood, Ohio, has canceled its annual Fourth of July Recreational Baseball League All-Star Game for 9-to 12-year-olds because "singling out certain kids as better players than others can hurt youthful self-confidence".
Santas in Sydney are rebelling against attempts to replace their traditional greeting of "ho, ho, ho," with "ha, ha, ha," because "ho, ho, ho," could be derogatory to women.

The Portsmouth, England, City Council informed a woman with an inflatable two-foot wading pool in her backyard that she must have a lifeguard on duty.

(NF: She should get an inflatable one.)

The British Youth Justice Board recommended that youths who hang around in groups committing anti-social acts should no longer be referred to as "gangs" because some youths who hang around in groups committing anti-social acts might find the word offensive.

In Tunbridge Wells, England, the borough council has banned the term "brainstorming" and replaced i…

Sci-Fi Phooey!

We watched the new "The Day the Earth Stood Still" despite its awful reviews.

We figured that's their opinion and besides, the CGIs will probably make it worthwhile.

The movie wasa huge disappointment.
Especially Gort. When it morphed into a swarm of robotic insect-thingys, what was that all about?

When the earth stood still (finally), it was like an afterthought.

And the ending? Well it ended. Abruptly. Like this sentence.
What was that all about?

Oh well, there's always the new Star Trek prequel, which BTW, is getting excellent reviews.

Beam me up, Mr. Scott

Our Commander-in-Chief

Remember Barack Hussein Obama's surprise stopover in Iraq a few weeks ago?
And the cheering soldiers?

Well, here's a different take on it:

Obama's Potemkin military receptionAccording to a sergeant in Iraq:
We were pre-screened, asked by officials “Who voted for Obama?”, and then those who raised their hands were shuffled to the front of the receiving line. They even handed out digital cameras and asked them to hold them up.

Right-Wing Extremism

A recently unclassified government report warns against the possibility of violence by “right-wing extremists".

The PDF File

Michelle Malkin:

"One of the spokespeople said he was told that the report has been in the works for a year. My b.s. detector went off the chart, and yours will, too, if you read through the entire report — which asserts with no evidence that an unquantified “resurgence in right-wing extremist recruitment and radicalizations activity” is due to home foreclosures, job losses, and…the historical presidential election."


John Lillpop at Canada Free Press
wrote a wonderful satire You Are A Right-Wing Extremist IF:
... but I wouldn't bet money that the left-wing howling mad Barking Moonbats don't take it as the gospel.

I guess I'm one (a RWE, NOT a LWHMBM) because I agree with over half of John's list, including:
I Believe that 9/11 was more serious than Watergate.I Wear an American flag (and a 'My Son is A Marine') pins.
I Want America’…

BOW -Wow

The White House is denying that Barack Hussein Obama BOWED to King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia at a G-20 meeting in London.
"It wasn't a bow. He grasped his hand with two hands, and he's taller than King Abdullah," said an Obama aide, who spoke on the condition of anonymity.So then Obama bent over to, what, talk to the King's right elbow?

Perhaps we need to define bow.

Look at the picture. That is Barack Hussein Obama bowing to a foreign potentate.

It's practically a curtsy.

POTUS bows to No ONE.

Until now.

Still need convincing?

Check out the video. It CLEARLY shows Barack Hussein Obama bowing to the the king, THEN reaching with both hands to grasp the king's right hand.





So Mr. Robert Gibbs ("I think he bent over with both, to shake - with both hands to shake his hand ..."), You are a LIAR.

Are you paying attention yet?


A Personal Thank You

... to the two Army helicopter pilots making an unscheduled stop at my son's base in Iraq.

His team was due to leave their FOB, the first step in returning home, but were told that air ops were being halted due to an approaching storm. They could expect a 3-day delay.

My USMC son heard the choppers, checked the board, asked a few questions, and long story short - they got a ride out just ahead of the storm.

The Army pilots dropped them and all their gear off where they needed to be in Baghdad before taking off for their own base.

Thanks to you good guys, my son and his team should make all their scheduled connections and we will see him soon!

Ooo Rah!

What Goes Around...

Apparently Khadija Abdul Qahaar -aka- Ms Beverly Giesebrecht, a Canadian journalist who converted to Islam after 9-11, is not enjoying the first-hand experience of Taliban hospitality.

Before:"It is my hope that this will inspire others to Islam and to take a stand against this shameful war on 'terrorism."

Now:"I need somebody to help me," Qaahar pleaded on the most recent video. "My government — the Canadian government, the Pakistan government — I want to go home."

President Polarizer

So much for unifying the country.


The PEW Research Center:
For all of his hopes about bipartisanship, Barack Obama has the most polarized early job approval ratings of any president in the past four decades.

The 61-point partisan gap in opinions about Obama's job performance is the result of a combination of high Democratic ratings for the president -- 88% job approval among Democrats -- and relatively low approval ratings among Republicans (27%).
Barack Hussein Obama rates lower than Jimmy 'Goober' Carter, the worst president ever.

Until Now.

Guns & Missiles & Nukes, Oh My!

Barack Hussein Obama has called for a "world without nuclear weapons", which means that we (The USA) will have none while North Korea and Iran continue developing them.

Make no mistake, that is what they are doing.

And I'm pretty sure that Russia, India and Pakistan will not be giving up their entire arsenals. Maybe a few older bombs, you know, to look good.

How secure does that make you feel?

It's kinda like the anti-gun lobby wanting to disarm the citizens by legislating gun control.

All this does is prevent the honest folks who believe in self-protection from having the means to do just that.

Meanwhile the bad guys keep their guns.

So the next time you're confronted by someone waving something that shoots a supersonic projectile (bullet) in a shopping center parking lot, or in your workplace, or classroom, or even in your own home, maybe you can quote the proposed gun control laws to them.

Mark These Words

Having taken over the Census Bureau, Barack Hussein Obama and his merry band of liberals are reshaping the electoral landscape.

Michelle Malkin:

Obama Census Plan: No illegal Alien Left Behind
The immediate agenda of the left-wing census volunteer groups: freezing immigration raids.

The long-term goal: Exploiting the massive population of illegal aliens to redraw the political map and secure a permanent ruling majority.
Mark these Words: There will be a push to abolish presidential term limits.



The Obama Youth

aka

GIVE "Generations Invigorating Volunteerism and Education" Act(House)
- and - SERVE (Senate)

SERVE would provide some kind of volunteer program for virtually all ages. It also concentrates efforts in low-income communities.
Michelle Malkin:
...In addition to recruiting up to 250,000 enrollees in AmeriCorps, the GIVE/SERVE bills would create new little armies of government volunteers, including a Clean Energy Corps, Education Corps, Healthy Futures Corps, Veterans Service Corps, and an expanded National Civilian Community Corps for disaster relief and energy conservation.
... Spending would include new funds for a Social Innovation Fund and Volunteer Generation Fund -- $50 million in 2010; $60 million in 2011; $70 million in 2012; $80 million in 2013; and $100 million in 2014. Social Innovation Fund? It is essentially a special taxpayer-funded pipeline for radical liberal groups backed by billionaire George Soros that masquerade as public-interest do-gooders. ...Amer…

One Scary Guy

Harold Koh.

Nominated by Barack Hussein Obama to be the State Department's Legal advisor.

Read about it HERE

Why so scary?

Instead of being a strong defender of America's sovereignty, Mr. Koh argues that the distinctions between US and international law should vanish.

Including, apparently, the world of radical imams.
A New York lawyer, Steven Stein, says that, in addressing the Yale Club of Greenwich in 2007, Koh claimed that "in an appropriate case, he didn't see any reason why shari'a law would not be applied to govern a case in the United States." And. Mr. Koh is reportedly on the short list forSCOTUS.

Imagine the SCOTUS applying Shari'a
It could happen.

Gutless Congressman
