Acting Stupidly

Regarding the latest unbelievableness from Barack Hussein Obama...

Here's my take, in brief:

_Two people acted stupidly. 
Sgt. James Crowley was not one of them.

_It is my observation that the one who screams RACIST first or loudest is always the biggest one.

_Henry Louis Gates, who is supposedly smart enough to be an educator at Harvard, should have been glad his neighbor even called the police._After saying he "did not have all the facts", Barack Hussein Obama should have replied "I cannot comment", then shut his mouth.

Will he apologize?
Doubt it. He's too busy reminding everyone that he is the president.

Perhaps Barack Hussein Obama has some sort of grudge against the Cambridge police? Check THIS out.

And WHY did it take ten days for Barack Hussein Obama to comment on the explosive situation in Iran and ten minutes to comment on this?

What's Important

To paraphrase the words of Glenn Beck, "Blood just might start spurting from my ears".

I made a mistake this morning and didn't change the channel fast enough (or turn it off) when the Rachel Ray show came on. I have nothing personal against Ms Ray, I just don't watch her show.

The title of today's show:

"I'd Trade My Husband For A Housekeeper"

The two blonde guests, aka modern homemakers, expressed their angst about having to find a balance between time for themselves, time with their husbands, time with their kids, time with their husbands AND kids; they wonder about their roles and hope that their husbands will do their share; and they hope the laundry gets folded correctly.

They should talk to military wives whose angst is often expressed as hope that they'll see their husbands again.

Official Insanity

The highlights from Phil Kerpen's

Our Government Is Officially Insane
The deficit today crossed the startling trillion dollar threshold, a number never before even contemplated for a full year of federal borrowing, but that we have now breezed through in just half a year.
Such a deficit represents a crushing future tax burden for ourselves, our children, and our grandchildren -- who will pay back every penny with interest.
The so-called stimulus bill was slammed through on partisan lines despite the overwhelming anger of almost everyone who was paying attention. The bill, we were told, was our economic salvation (purely a coincidence, of course, that it happened to contain every item on the left's big government wish list).
Unemployment -- which the stimulus was supposed to keep under 8 percent -- is officially at 9.5 percent, and is 16.5 percent if you include people who have given up looking for work and part-time workers who wish they were full-time.

Walter Cronkite, Good Night

...and good riddance.

This is how I remember Walter Cronkite:

It was on February 27, 1968, when Walter Cronkite gave his "Mired in a Stalemate" speech.

He declared that the war was "unwinnable".
Except that we were not mired in a stalemate.
And the war was not "unwinnable".Read the memoirs of General Vo Nguyen Giap, North Vietnam, TET primary strategist.

ButWalter Cronkite was "the most trusted man in America".

American public opinion changed.

The North Vietnamese realized that they didn't have to win militarily, they only had to outlast the will of the American people, who were already sick of seeing husbands and sons, fathers and brothers coming home in body bags.

So, we declared a truce, pulled out our troops, and cut off funding to the South Vietnamese; the North Vietnamese restrengthened, the South Vietnamese government fell, and thousands of South Vietnamese were sent to 're-education camps' or killed outright.

Since then, even our fo…

Our Do-Nothing Senate

... Did nothing yesterday.

Here's why.

That meant the defense authorization bill, which contains a raise for U.S. troops and funding for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, had to wait. The floor however, was open for speeches.

I say that come November 2010, let's give them all the time time they want to watch baseball, as former Senators.

Keeping Secrets

According to the AP, CIA Director Leon Panetta terminated a very seriouscovertprogram that had been kept secret from Congress for 8 years. A covert program that had never been activated.

Now, why would the CIA want to keep something secret from Congress?
Well, duh.Because of those 535 self-important blabbermouths.

Witness the current revelation by Rep. Jan Schakowsky, chairwoman of the Intelligence Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations, who apparently managed to wait long enough for the AP to arrive before blabbing, and is now pushing for an immediate committee investigation of the (formerly) classified program.
Democrats revealed that CIA Director Leon Panetta had informed members of the House Intelligence Committee on June 24 that the spy agency had been withholding important information about a secret intelligence program begun after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.Panetta had learned of the program only the day before informing the lawmakers, according to a U.S. …

Applied Obamunism in Shreveport

I read the alt.binaries.humor.skewed Newsgroup.
This was posted by Morris.
There is nothing humorous about it. You don't have to go to Detroit for a preview of America's statist Third World future. Shreveport, Louisiana offers a glimpse:"Just ask Shreveport resident Robert Baillio, who got pulled over for having two pro-gun bumper stickers on the back of his truck — and had his gun confiscated.While the officer who pulled him over says Baillio failed to use his turn signal, the only questions he had for Baillio concerned guns: Whether he had a gun, where the gun was, and if he was a member of the NRA. No requests for a driver's license, proof of insurance, or vehicle registration — and no discussion of a turn signal. Accordingly, Baillio told the officer the truth, which led the police officer to search his car without permission and confiscate his gun. However, not only does Louisiana law allow residents to drive with loaded weapons in their vehicles, but Mr.…

Now I AM Pissed

I just now had to turn off the morning Fox and Friends show.

I am fed up to the ears with the continuous news coverage of Michael Jackson's death. He did not contribute anything to this world other than entertainment. H is death was not due to any sort of heroic cause. He is not a hero.

Now we have to hear about Michael Jackson's 11-year-old daughter's 'emotional speech' at her father's Memorial Extravaganza.

The child did not give a speech. There were no tears on her face.

See for yourself.

I am not slamming the child. I am not saying she didn't love her daddy.

I am taking issue with the media.

And the Jackson Family's attempt at drumming up pathos.
(There might be a DVD to sell.)

If you want real emotion and real tears, go to a funeral for a real hero.

The Michael Jackson Memorial Extravaganza

I'd be pissed if I were a resident of the financially strapped state of California ...

   because they are going to get stuck with paying the million+ dollar Tab for the Michael Jackson Memorial Extravaganza ... even though the entire thing will no doubt be made into a DVD to be sold for millions of dollars, none of which -I'm betting- will go towards paying any of the reported $400 MILLION debt owed by Jackson before his death nor the $3.5 million for the afore-mentioned extravaganza.

The services provided by the city of Los Angeles:

• At least 1,400 police officers to keep the peace
• Workers from the Department of Transportation to arrange and enforce street closures
• Still more workers from the Department of Public Works to keep the area clean and operating
• Fire and rescue specialists, just in case too many rabid fans moonwalk into one another out in the streets.
And get this:

And just in case you still think it's disrespectful to the dead to be discussing money lik…

Our Founding Fathers

Each state had only one vote but could send any number of delegates to the convention. The final vote was 13-0 making it unanimous. 56 signed.

Wake-Up Call from Luke AFB

Just recently I read the response of the original complainant to the response from the USAF Lt Col regarding the original complainant's original complaint. Got that?

If you're already familiar with the original complaint and response, skip down to Tom McRae's response.

Here's the Complaint:

Letter to the Editor (Arizona Republic)
'Question of the day for Luke Air Force Base:Whom do we thank for the morning air show? Last Wednesday, at precisely 9:11 A.M, a tight formation of four F-16 jets made a low pass over Arrowhead Mall, continuing west over Bell Road at approximately 500 feet. Imagine our good fortune! Do the Tom Cruise-wannabes feel we need this wake-up call, or were they trying to impress the cashiers at Mervyns early bird special? Any response would be appreciated.' _ Tom McRae
Here's Lt. Col. Rosensteel's response:

Regarding 'A wake-up call from Luke's jets'
On June 15, at precisely 9:12 a.m., a perfectly timed four-ship fly by of…
