Interesting how quickly a politician can lie to their most loyal of supporters. The many supporters of Barack Obama should have realized this truth by now--they have been lied to. Of course, many of them lacked the common sense in the first place, and are now waking up finally feeling duped.
Obama's promise on October 27, 2007, to bring the troops home as one of his first actions in the Oval Office is obviously a broken promise. The left-wing peace activist arm of liberalism is finally speaking up.
As Obama escalates the war efforts in Afghanistan, the anti-war crowd in joining Democratic members of Congress in condemning their dear leader's actions. Even Michael Moore is angry at Obama.
"I simply can't believe you're about to do what they say you are going to do," Moore said in an open letter to Obama posted on his Web site. Moore warned that Obama would become known as the new "war president" by sending the additional troops.
"With just one speech tomorrow night you will turn a multitude of young people who were the backbone of your campaign into disillusioned cynics. Your potential decision to expand the war ... will do more to set your legacy in stone than any of the great things you've said and done in your first year."
I think Moore suffered from delusion in the last part of this paragraph, as I am not sure what great things he is referring to. Maybe it's the very best of Obama's presidency, which I posted earlier today.
"For the sake of your presidency, hope, and the future of our nation, stop. For God's sake, stop," Moore wrote.
MoveOn.org is also begging Obama to bring the troops home and stop the quagmire in Afghanistan. Code Pink is requesting that people protest Obama's speech--before, during, and after. Democratic members of Congress are also opposing Obama's plans.
I myself don't believe that Obama has the kahoneys to finish the war with a victory. I still believe he is willing to risk more American lives for politics as usual as he looks for an exit strategy to blame Bush to save him from having to play president for real with this war. Obama is and always has been incapable of tough decisions--which we learned with his repeated present vote in the Illinois State Senate.
One thing is for sure about Obama, he's not only good at dividing the country--he has also become very good at dividing his own party and his core of looney liberal constituents. This is good news as even they are starting to wonder who in the hell they really voted for. Let me remind them one more time of October 27, 2007.
Thanks Phil in Wisconsin for all your contributions this year!
That's why, despite all the doubts now cast about the ethics of politically motivated global warming and all the scams surrounding it, Obama had Robert Gibbs continue the course with the Al Gore Answer.
Of course, Robert Gibbs didn't say it exactly like that. Here's what Gibbs said, "I don't think that's anything that is, quite frankly, among most people, in dispute anymore." This is even after there are thousands of scientists who now question the man-made global warming theory, and after numerous e-mails from Hadley CRU point to taking climate skeptics out of the peer review process. That's something Obama, Gibbs, and Gore don't want you to know though. They all stand to lose too much power and money from this controversy surrounding Hadley CRU.
Gibbs went on to say, "I think there's no real scientific basis for the dispute of this," responded Gibbs to questions about those scientists' credibility.
Let me put this as blunt as possible, when your White House follows a similar playbook as the scientists at Hadley CRU, with similar plays like intimidation, of course you are going to be blinded by the corruption. The Hadley CRU scientists were basically using an altered, scientific edition of Saul Alinksy's Rules for Radicals. For Gibbs to question the credibility of the scientists would be in essence Gibbs questioning the credibility of Obama--they play by the same rules of silencing your enemies using intimidation.
As far as Gibbs is concerned, this is just another day at the White House. Nothing new here. Move along.
The Associated Press is already repeating their Black Friday performance. Of course when the final numbers were tallied, Black Friday was ho hum compared to the rhetoric AP used to describe the shopping. Before Cyber Monday is even close to being over, the AP reports online sales are already up 20%.
Now, I don’t know if I need to remind you, the shopping opportunities on the Web are vast. How could they possibly have those figures? It’s like election night exit polls for John Kerry—so much excitement for Democrats but the truth is still waiting.
Apparently there is an analytics company out of San Mateo, California called Coremetrics that analyzes the total sales on the Internet. I am just asking why would any online marketer want a third party tracking their sales for? Does this make any sense? For this company to have an accurate projection, there are far too many variables, and I can’t imagine every major online retailer would want such a company tracking their sales activities. That’s too intrusive for most businesses, isn’t it?
Like retail, the competition has become so intense that it seems we hear of a pissing war daily between Walmart and Amazon. Sales may be up 20% but profits may be another story. Giving something away, which it seems is likely isn’t necessarily good for the economy either. When you mark down something $50 that sales retail at $200, you are destroying your margins. No big profits—less likelihood of hiring.
While a 20% increase may also sound like a lot compared to last year, and I do believe there is pathos in the headline, the bottom line is online sales only account for a little less than ten percent of the total holiday sales. They can spin this like the economy is chugging along, but seriously there is been minimal retail growth from 2008 even with the 20% increase in sales this Cyber Monday. Besides, it’s all speculation at this point. There is still six hours left to go on the East Coast.
I personally haven’t given it much thought until Newsweek’s John Meacham published Why Dick Cheney Should Run in 2012. I have to admit I was tired of George W. Bush at the end, especially with his decisions to move forward with the bailouts, but I have been inspired in recent months with Cheney’s constant challenges of the Obama administration.
Still I don’t know if I would support a Cheney candidacy. He is an insider, and I feel we need true representative of the people who understand the Constitution—and not special interests which Obama has proven to be, especially with Wall Street. There were far too many times in the Bush administration that these violations of the Constitution also occurred. Still it’s an interesting thought.
Yet there is part of me who hears Cheney and feels he does have the country’s best interest in mind and knows what it takes to protect the country from radical Islamic terrorism while bringing conservative ideas back to the White House. I am open to the idea, but it comes with caution.
Should Dick Cheney run in 2010? Here’s John Meacham’s thoughts:
Gallup is not asking about him in its prospective polling, and his daughter Liz's recent Fox News Sunday allusion to a presidential run provoked good-natured laughter, as though the suggestion were just a one-liner. Float the hypothetical in political conversation, and people roll their eyes dismissively.
But I think we should be taking the possibility of a Dick Cheney bid for the Republican presidential nomination in 2012 more seriously, for a run would be good for the Republicans and good for the country. (The sound you just heard in the background was liberal readers spitting out their lattes.)
Why? Because Cheney is a man of conviction, has a record on which he can be judged, and whatever the result, there could be no ambiguity about the will of the people. The best way to settle arguments is by having what we used to call full and frank exchanges about the issues, and then voting. A contest between Dick Cheney and Barack Obama would offer us a bracing referendum on competing visions. One of the problems with governance since the election of Bill Clinton has been the resolute refusal of the opposition party (the GOP from 1993 to 2001, the Democrats from 2001 to 2009, and now the GOP again in the Obama years) to concede that the president, by virtue of his victory, has a mandate to take the country in a given direction. A Cheney victory would mean that America preferred a vigorous unilateralism to President Obama's unapologetic multilateralism, and vice versa.
Three years out, the GOP field does not offer a putative nominee. When Gallup polled on the Republican race for 2012, it asked about Mike Huckabee, Mitt Romney, Sarah Palin, Newt Gingrich, Tim Pawlenty, and Haley Barbour (Huckabee won, with Romney and Palin tying for second among Republicans who were asked whom they would consider voting for). Cheney covers all the ground these folks do, and then some. (After Liz Cheney's remark on Fox News, a flood of subsequent e-mails asked her, "Where do I sign up?") In an era of ideological purity within the party, Cheney is among the purest; no one can question his conservative credentials on national security, and his record in the House and as vice president places him beyond reproach from the base. He was, it is true, second in command in years of great deficit spending, but his image as an implacable foe of terrorism and a hardliner on the projection of American power would go a long way toward securing his position within the party as a warrior of the old school offering himself once more to a nation he has served in four different decades.
A campaign would also give us an occasion that history denied us in 2008: an opportunity to adjudicate the George W. Bush years in a direct way. As John McCain pointed out in the fall of 2008, he is not Bush. Nor is Cheney, but the former vice president would make the case for the harder-line elements of the Bush world view. Far from fading away, Cheney has been the voice of the opposition since the inauguration. Wouldn't it be more productive and even illuminating if he took his arguments out of the realm of punditry and into the arena of electoral politics? Are we more or less secure because of the conduct of the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq? Does the former vice president still believe in a connection between Saddam and Al Qaeda? Did the counterterror measures adopted in the aftermath of the attacks go too far? Let's have the fight and see what the country thinks.
Historically the country has tended to muddle through somewhere between the extremes of right and left. There is often much virtue in conducting public life by fits and starts. When things drift too far one way in ideological terms, Americans are pretty good about tugging them back to the middle.
But the middle moves depending on where the poles of right and left are standing at a particular moment. Given Cheney's views, even conservatives who dislike him or think it is time to open a new chapter might give the possibility another thought, for it seems much more likely that Cheney would pull Obama to the right than that Obama would pull Cheney to the left. I think it is safe to say that neither a Huckabee nor a Palin bid would have the same effect.
No one foresaw Cheney's reemergence as a force in the politics of the 21st century until it happened. So perhaps the pattern is set, a pattern of insistent denial of interest—until it turns out that, hey, he is interested. Cheney's memoirs are due to be published—and thus due to be promoted—in the spring of 2011, not long before the caucuses and primaries begin. I'll bet you that the Barnes & Noble in Des Moines (there's a big one at The Shoppes at Three Fountains) is on the book tour.
Bill Clinton is salivating today. He’s hoping to get an invite to the bachelor party—and probably can suggest the names of a few strippers and hookers to entertain himself, Marc Mezvinsky, and his buddies. It’s unclear at this time if Mezvinsky wants to be upstaged by the former president, and the last thing Mezvinsky can afford is semen-stained bachelor party evidence that could ruin the big day. The Clinton women have struggled enough—of course something tells me Bill has struggled having to be married to HER!
The once awkward teenager that lived in the White House for eight years discovering so many family secrets is now prepared to start her own. Chelsea is getting married, and no doubt, considering those involved, it’s going to be a circus. I wonder which bridesmaid will learn which way the former first member is bent.
I wonder if he will shake is finger at Chelsea. “Marc and I did not have sexual relations with that hooker and her donkey.”
Senator Harry Reid warned the Senate today they better be ready to put in some weekends in December. There is no time off because healthcare needs to pass this year to give Obama a push he needs—no matter how unpopular it is with the American people. It doesn’t need to be popular—Reid knows they have ACORN to fall back on next November for their yes votes of the unpopular idea to take over the healthcare industry a step at a time.
“There’s not an issue more important than finishing this legislation,” Reid told his colleagues warning them there will be no time to enjoy the Christmas season. They will work seven days a week until they reach an agreement on healthcare. I am frequently reminded of how the criminals leading Congress in 1913 passed the controversial Federal Reserve Act. The similarities are eerie.
Bah Humbug, I don’t care if it’s Christmas, this is not time to focus on anything but Obama’s desires, right Mr. Reid? Obama is the reason for this season—at least according to Reid he is.
It didn’t take long after the debate began for the Democrats to start adding amendments to add to the nearly trillion dollar bill. Senator Barbara Mikulski (D-MD) quickly took the spotlight to win the hearts of women everywhere who are enraged over the relaxed findings about annual breast exams. Mikulski amended the current bill to drive up the costs of the bill through reducing co-pays for and deductibles for preventive services for women like breast exams. All political theater knowing the controversy of the report earlier this month. Oh she cares so much, that she is obviously willing to rack up more debt to pass on to the next generation of Americans. Playing politics isn’t providing practical solutions.
So if anyone asks you who the scrooge of the season is this year, it’s not Jim Carey, Harry Reid is the scrooge.
It’s been called the Graveyard of Armies, and unless Obama comes up with a strategy that more complex than sending more American troops to Afghanistan, this country may find out the hard way. Obama, who is breaking an October 27, 2007 promise, has decided 30,000 more troops are in order for the efforts in Afghanistan. This is what took Obama weeks and months to decide other than there is now an exit strategy.
This is why America will learn why Afghanistan earned its name. Obama is putting 30,000 more troops in harm’s way knowing they are part of the plan to leave. All Al Qaeda and the Taliban have to do is patiently wait, and Afghanistan will be theirs again, and we will be looking at a new strategy once Obama is out of office. You aren’t supposed to announce to your enemy when you are still trying to defeat them you are planning to leave. You just empowered them—America is preparing to run. Praise Allah the jihad is winning.
Why is Obama extending this war effort if his strategy is to exit rather than to win? Is it so politically correct to say that we have a winning strategy. Obama is arrogant in every other thing he does—just not in leading the military. Shouldn’t we see a President tomorrow night that is going to confirm our men and women are going to come home proud of the victory?
This seems like a game to me. Obama has taken heat for not listening to the commanders in Afghanistan who requested 40,000 additional troops. Instead Obama is sending 10,000 less troops and some Drug Enforcement Agents—that’s right drug enforcement agents. Obama may get to declare victory on the war on poppies while the rest of the efforts fail. Perhaps this is Obama’s way of saying, I tried doing it their way and it failed. No one who wishes for victory and claims he will undo the wrongs of the previous administration and get the job done instantly declares an exit strategy. The enemy is laughing once again at Obama.
It’s feeling more like 1979. Iran has taken five British sailors hostage, and we have Jimmy Carter Jr. in office to deal with it. Get the magic 8-Ball Mr. Obama, you have a crisis to deal with.
Early reports claim the racing yacht the sailors were in crossed into Iranian waters. Their yacht was tracked down by Iranian war ships and they were taken to Tehran. At this time the sailors are in good shape, and their families have been contacted, but it clearly shows the tensions between Iran and the West are tense and building. The idea of talking to these kind souls doesn’t seem to be working for Obama.
Al Gore betrayed this country. He played upon our fears. He should be the laughing stock on his way to jail, but he’s waiting for the right moment to come out again after this Hadley CRU e-mail controversy cools down. When he does, his rhetoric will be more fierce and based on more lies. He stands to lose too much money if he is proven a fraud, so he will dig deep into his pockets and the pockets of others to protect his green energy investments. This is all about Gore’s own self-indulgent greed. It has nothing to do with saving the earth.
Enjoy the words of Al Gore applied to Al Gore himself:
Serena Williams, who owns a minority share in the National Football League’s Miami Dolphins, was fined $82,500 for her comments which she threatened a US Open tennis judge with the words kill you. With heavy profanity, Williams made the threat to the judge, and then denied it. Witnesses were there quickly denying Williams’ claims.
Such behavior really isn’t fitting for an owner of an NFL team, is it Mr. Roger Goodell. Surely this isn’t the image you want portrayed by the owners of your valuable teams. There have been other high-profile personalities who were denied ownership for words far less serious, threatening, and profane.
I thought the National Football League had standard when it came to ownership, but I guess the female version of John McEnroe proves differently. She can get away with telling someone she will f’in’ kill them when she doesn’t get the call she wants.
The Politico features a great article titled the Seven Stories Obama Doesn’t Want Told. They cite the Obama story is his strength; although, there are reasons to believe it has been carefully embellished and rewritten for American political theater. Anyway, they have come up with seven weaknesses for Obama. The possible storylines Obama should fear includes:
1. He thinks he’s playing with Monopoly money
2. Too much Leonard Nimoy (too intellectual and not enough emotion—Obama isn’t from Kenya, he’s from Vulcan)
3. That’s the Chicago way
4. He’s a pushover
5. He sees America as another pleasant country on the U.N. roll call, somewhere between Albania and Zimbabwe
6. President Pelosi
7. He’s in love with the man in the mirror
The Politico really drives the final point on the head. It’s been eleven months all about Obama and Obama only.
It’s being reported, Florida police are seeking a warrant to search and question golf legend Tiger Woods, specifically his medical records for DUI purposes. Woods was involved in an accident after he left his house at 2:30 in the morning this past weekend. It appears to me Woods is a victim of his own celebrity, and if this was an average person, this wouldn’t have gone this far.
As details come out, its apparent Woods probably did the right thing as his wife, Elin Nordegren, seems to have acted upon her anger after rumors of an affair came to life. There are some conflicting stories, but it looks Nordegren chased Woods with a golf club and to avoid possible domestic assault charges himself, he apparently tried to leave the house as his wife chased him swinging the club. Her story now questionable conflicts have appeared in her story.
So why are they making Woods out to be the bad guy? If he even laid a hand on her it would have gotten ugly for him, and the best thing for him to do is leave the house. If she was chasing him, it’s easy to see how he could have made the mistakes behind the wheel of the car which would have caused the unfortunate chain of events.
This is not to give him a pass for the claims of adultery, but he clearly doesn’t deserve the destruction of his reputation over this. There are reports that prescription medications may have had something to do with it, which is why they may receive their warrant as they push DUI charges. If Woods was being beaten by his wife, he should be free to protect himself and remove himself from the harm she imposed.
I may be totally wrong in my analysis, but I believe Tiger did what Tiger felt was necessary to protect himself and avoid getting slapped with domestic violence charges. Coincidentally, I have been in his shoes many years ago when a girlfriend chased me with a baseball bat and actually struck my wrist braking my Fossil St. Louis Blues watch. Of course, I wasn’t cheating on her, but was rather upset with her about how she treated me on a trip we took together to Florida.
I told her I was going to fly home, and she said I wasn’t going to embarrass her in front of her family. I packed up and went outside to wait for my cab when she came out with the baseball bat. I can understand what Woods went through, and considering his image, one can understand him being elusive in hopes of a little privacy. Woods has done nothing wrong in terms of how he has handled any of the officers. He has the right to remain silent and shut the door on the cops until they come back with a warrant.
The favored tool of the liberal left to brainwash children in public schools these days seem to be music. Across the United States, we are seeing and hearing more videos of school-age children singing catchy lyrics full of left-wing rhetoric.
At first it was school music program with children celebrating Barack Obama with themed lyrics about what they can do to help Obama. Now children are coming home singing " . . . You can hear the warning -- GLOBAL WARMING . . . " School music programs have become indoctrination programs in which kids repeatedly recite lyrics they can’t possibly understand fully and often conflict with their parent’s beliefs. The seed is planted through the classical conditioning in the chants the follow catch tunes.
Andrea Peyser says her husband’s jaw dropped when her daughter came home from her New York public school singing what she calls “the Warming Song.” The song actually scolded the parents as selfish adults who have allowed all this warming to happen because they use energy. Peyser says the song is complete with polar bears and the birds, trees, and bees.
We have watched over the past few weeks as the left continues to use children in their commercials, like the World Wildlife Fund commercial begging Obama to travel to Copenhagen and agree to a climate treaty that robs the United States and Europe of their power while ignoring the carbon output of China and Mexico. The kids create instant pathos and nothing more. The kids are the obvious result of careless parents who have forgotten they are allowed to walk into a classroom and observe what their children are being taught.
It seems more and more like school music programs are the best way to program children into accepting the rubbish of the left. It totally makes sense. The kids I know are more likely to know Taylor Swift lyrics than the First Amendment, and that is just sad. Music is fun—much more fun than indoctrinating children through a text book.
For years political correctness as infiltrated through elementary schools in the most apparent of all elementary school traditions—the Christmas concert or show. It’s now called the winter concert or whatever, and often it has nothing to do with winter or Christmas. It has successfully taken Christmas out of many schools. Score one for the left.
Knowing their victory was too easy with Christmas, they are turning to music programs once again who have removed all traces of Christianity within their winter programs and now have substituted it with the pseudo religion of global warming led by 2009’s version of Jim Jones—the reverend of the new age, Al Gore. Oh great mother earth, they pray, and now they are teaching your kids to sing the hymns of Gore’s pseudo religion and you are paying for the hymnals with your personal property taxes.
In the past few years, MTV has pushed hard to raise awareness that music in schools may soon face budget cuts eliminating the programs. It’s no wonder they have fought so hard to raise awareness—music has become the highway to your child’s mind. Maybe it’s time to combat the efforts of MTV and other left-wing forces that are using music programs to program children into accepting the views of the left. After all, does your kid really need to spend hours each week learning silly songs so they can stand on a riser with other kids you could care less about and sing songs out of key? Sure it might create some great memories, but in that same hour they could learn real American history and the truth about the Constitution that is no longer taught today. They could be working on real science and mathematics, which US industries demand. Rather, they are singing silly songs like ‘the Warming song’ and many parents are losing their child’s brain to people who don’t have their child’s best interest in mind—they have a politician and their philosophies in mind for your child.
Oh, what mighty debates and questionable projects Obama’s stimulus packages creates! A controversy has broken out over a paving a stretch of bicycle trails between runners and cyclist thanks to stimulus funding.
The Frisco Highline trail is a primarily gravel trail connecting Springfield, Missouri to Bolivar, Missouri as it passes through communities like Willard. Thanks to this questionable job-producing $787 billion debt, more sections of the Frisco Highline Trail are about to become paved surfaces at the pleasure of cyclists in the community. This has local joggers fuming with the frustration of the promises of future stress fractures. (Never fear, Obama’s about to take care of those too. You may have to wait in long lines, but the governments going to provide healthcare for all. I really don’t see what’s the worry!)
"Should the Frisco Trail be paved, we runners will lose our escape from the knee- and back-breaking asphalt and concrete streets and greenways of Springfield. I've feared that this would happen because in all the places I've lived, I keep seeing great running trails ruined over and over again by those who do not understand their value," said Missouri State University cross country running coach Greg Hipp.
The nearly $350,000 paving project is said to be good for the community, according to Ozark Greenways Executive Director Terry Whaley, who claims trail usage has gone up 300% since other parts of the trail were paved. Then he says the stupidest most dangerous thing you can say about these bicycle trails, and as a cyclist who regularly used similar trails in Chicago, I can’t help but warn people these trails aren’t for young children on tricycles.
"Senior citizens are on the trail now. Families with young children on tricycles can use the paved trail. It's much more acceptable to a larger number of people," he said. "We estimate that trail use tripled after we paved it."
Just a side note, parents who place their kids on tricycles, training wheel bicycles, and battery-powered, pink Barbie Corvettes often don’t teach children to be aware of their surroundings and trail traffic. One day a child is going to get seriously hurt or die because they swerve into the path of an adult on the bicycle. That’s where the real threat of injury comes. I can’t tell you how many times I have ridden the trails in Chicago and found myself going head on with a child who swerved across the yellow line into my path. Of course, there are goofy adults wearing iPods that don’t pay attention to ‘on your left’ either and will walk right in front of you. I have hit a few of them on my bike, and they always seem dumbfounded by it.
Of course none of this is asking any of the questions that should be asked. I mean we can listen to Missouri State cross country runners cry about the changes all day long, which are featured in today’s Springfield News-Leader, but the real pain of this is what long-term jobs have been created with this careless use of stimulus money. This country is going into debt at a pace faster than any other time in our history, and we are worried about stress fractures!
The stimulus package was sold to create jobs, which it hasn’t. Unemployment has risen by three percentage points since its passage, and it’s now wonder why. It’s being used for trivial projects, which we find once again with this rails to trails project.
Happy Monday! Nothing like going back to work and logging into your computer with 50 different free porn Web sites showing up on your monitor. Clear the history! Clear the history!
I have a rouge program that looks like an Antivirus software. Every few seconds it lists another attack to another section of my computer—all fake! So now I am working to get it removed, but all the instructions on the internet seem dated, and it doesn’t appear the corporate antivirus software, Viper, is doing much to protect my computer from it.
It appears the Trojan horse may have come from People of Walmart—one of my new favorite Web sites. If anyone has any input how to get rid of this virus, I would greatly appreciate it.
My Internet Explorer has been disabled with the exception that it will take me to the order form for the full version of Antivirus System Pro or allow a pop up porn page to appear on my computer. Not safe for the work environment!
I have found the task that turns it off in Task Manager, but it won’t allow me to use Internet Explorer. I can’t find much else in the registry. Please help!
Since the days the Hadley e-mails have been exposed. Gore has been quiet except for an essay he released on Thanksgiving on capitalism--coded to his followers to be patient because there are still billions to make from the scheme when they figure out how to sweep it under the rug.
The World Health Organization released its recommendation on how to treat HIV just prior to World Aids Day. WHO says patients need AIDs drugs a year or two sooner than current recommendations. If their advice is accepted, it would more than double the amount of HIV infected people receiving treatment with over 5 million people added to the treatment list. The pharmaceutical companies are celebrating knowing US subsidies around the world for AIDs treatment will probably increase.
WHO now advises doctors to start HIV patients on drugs when their level of CD4 cells — a measure of the immune system — is about 350. Previously they said doctors should wait until patients' levels hovered around 200. In most Western countries, doctors start treating HIV patients when their CD4 count is about 500.
Not all doctors agree with the WHO AIDs report. Some worry putting people on HIV drugs sooner may cause the virus to strengthen over the drugs. Others believe putting 5 million more people on the drugs will cause distribution problems. Of course, some wonder where the funding is going to come from. I think we know where a majority of it will come from. George W. Bush increased the US Government's AIDs spending to record levels around the world, and of course it was never enough. Do you think Obama won't print or borrow a few billion so the world will celebrate and claim he's different than the previous president? Of course!
Of course, they care calling this a strong start to the Christmas season. I wonder if it would be considered a strong start had John McCain been president; after all, I did manage a retail store a few years ago, and my managers would not have considered 0.5 percent a strong start to anything--it's a slight improvement.

An elderly Ozark woman called the police when she saw a group of kids shooting with each other with of all things, Nerf guns. Nerf guns shoot a soft foam projectile from compressed air within the Nerf gun's mechanism.
Police showed up at the Waterford/Rivers neighborhood to investigate the complaint and found the children outside playing with their Nerf guns. Soon after they began lecturing one of the boys mother's about why the Nerf guns shouldn't be pointed at someone's face. I wish I were kidding, but It doesn't end there.
The Ozark police also told the elderly woman if she didn't like the kids playing she needed to move to an old folks' home. Like it's any of their business where the lady lives--sure her call to the Ozark police was petty and silly, but once again the Ozark police show why they have earned their bad reputations.
I think if any officer lectured me about a Nerf gun, I would probably be tempted to:
- Walk away laughing at the officer
- Walk away and show up with a Nerf gun to show him how silly he is for lecturing me.
I wonder when the last time the Ozark Police Department caught a real bad guy?
Now why would you throw away your scientific data? Could it be that an investigation is heating up the rooms at Hadley forcing these scientists to get a little CRAZY--perhaps worried of their reputations?
The scientists were requested to turn over their data under the Freedom of Information Act. The data which is in question are temperatures, that we know have been cooling and not warming, taken from weather station checkpoints around the world. They claim they dumped the data to save computer space. We've heard this one before from others who represent the government as well.
The scientists were able to present the revised data, but the original data has been destroyed. Don't you get the feeling each of these scientists have a panic button that acts like a self-destruct button in case someone was able to get close to their fraud? It sure seems that way to me.
The CRU posted the following on their Web site: “We do not hold the original raw data but only the value-added (quality controlled and homogenised) data.”
Of course, none of this means anything because Obama is headed to Copenhagen despite the obvious fraud continuing to grow. It seems to me the scientists learned from our own Richard M. Nixon, who liked to keep information on magnetic media in the form of a cassette tape. Purge the data quick, they are on to us!
Just Over Twenty Days Away Until Bungalow Bill Names 2009's Wackiest Liberals: Lets Heat Things up With Kate Beckinsale
Last year's winner was West Virginia Senator Robert Byrd, who exposed his secret love of Ted Kennedy on the Senate floor. Talk about political theater with a soap opera appeal! Since you are probably agonizing the this year's top ten announcement, I thought I would further heat things up at BBCW, taking an idea from the Other McCain, to take your mind off the wait with some sexy pictures of Kate Beckinsale--star of Serendipity.
Of course, this is a plot to bring more attention to the blog in hopes of getting to a million hits faster. Why not right?
So as global warming has been proven a fraud, and temperatures fall, we all dream of a warmer beach somewhere in the world with bikinis, sun tans, and waves--and I dream of a million hits in my second year of BBCW. So in a shameless marketing plot, here's the beautiful and hot Kate Beckinsale--ENJOY!

Shoppers at a Toy R Us became unruly because the store waited until after midnight, the posted Black Friday opening in hopes of having police officers there. When they opened the doors, Amy Serna was trampled and had to be taken to the hospital.
Is pushing material possessions on your already spoiled-rotten, bratty children really worth hurting a person over? How much did you save while Serna is in the hospital? $10, $15, perhaps $30? I hope getting your Zhu Zhu hamsters is worth knowing you are a sleazeball as this lady lays in a hospital.
Without any accountability over the ACORN controversies, it looks like their federal funding could be restored. The Obama administration is ready to write the check. This past week, Eric Holder issued a ruling that lifts the Congressional ban on federal dollars provided to ACORN and carries out any federal contracts with the corrupt community organizers.
If you remember, ACORN allowed a liberal democrat named Scott Harshbarger to conduct the investigation. Hashbarger promised to release the results of his investigation by the end of October. Breitbart points out its almost December, and there have been not reports of the investigation. It's almost quietly gone away, and now ACORN is getting more of your money to continue their corrupt work.
We also know from another corruption case in San Diego, ACORN dumped over 20,000 documents in a dumpster putting thousands of Californians at risk of identity theft. Those documents include strategies to carry out their 2012 election plans. It's no wonder Holder opened the government checkbook, especially with Obama's falling poll numbers. They are going to need every imaginary and illegal voter they can right now to pull of the Obama miracle in 2012. It's now wonder there are no investigation reports. Something tells me any investigation into the global warming e-mails from Hadley will also turn up as a dead investigation, and the Obama administration will prove they are part of the cover up as well.

That's right, so desperate are these people to save $20 maybe $30, sometimes more, they actually brought their RVs and parked in front of Best Buy to secure a spot in line. Now isn't this just the way to spend Thanksgiving, crammed into an RV camping with total strangers who also brought their RVs and tents totally falling for the exploits of the commercialism of Christmas.
For crying out loud--GET A LIFE! You are sacrificing quality time with your family to camp out in a parking lot of a retail store just to earn the CHEAP on your life's resume. I hope you considered the reason for the season while you were there.
Unfortunately, I see all the distractions Americans have been conditioned to for whatever reason. The kids get to grandmas and they run straight to the TV with their Wii games from home in hand. Come say hello to me--too busy with Super Smash Brothers--wham bam, look Uncle Clay I can take a picture of the epic battle. Back to smashing.
Then there are the adults who bring their laptops to the holiday celebration. This used to be me, but I would get in trouble at even the thought of blogging during holiday. Now it's my sister pretending she's a farmer on some Facebook ap, as the rest of strategize our Black Friday plans. I realize how distant it all seems now from the way it was just 20 years ago and before.
Too many distractions take away from the holiday experience. Most of them have to do with technology. Even I am guilty as I take my Palm Pre out of my pocket looking over blog stats for the day--and Thanksgiving traffic was very good with a few comments about my Article V blog that seemed to get past too many people. It may be the most important blog I have written to date. Yes, I may not have my laptop but I participate in the new traditions of the holiday that rob the charming traditional holidays.
Maybe America needs to think about turning off the technology that's robbing young Americans of traditional communications skills and of stories of days gone by before them. They don't have the attention spans anymore to care. If it's not flashing on a video screen, it doesn't keep their interest. Isn't it sad though when you reflect on your holiday what they used to be like and what they have turned in.
I miss grandma and grandpa. We would watch out the window for their Ford Fairmont to pull up in the driveway. Kids might do that today, but I am not so sure. I have been with my mom when we have driving to St. Louis to see my nephews. They are always someplace so far away from the window looking out to the driveway that I have my doubts.
I miss the stories of the depression and how a few sticks of candy and a some working gloves was all that Santa Clause brought. Now if kids aren't getting a $300 Xbox with another couple hundred worth of games, they throw it in your face. Maybe we have it too good. Maybe we do need another depression to make people more appreciative of what they have when the holidays roll around. Yes, maybe that wouldn't be a bad thing.
Over the last couple weeks, men and women from around the world who questioned the political motivation of climate change have watched as e-mails were leaked that were taken from one of the world's leading authorities on global warming. These e-mails present clear evidence that current global temperatures from the last ten or so years have been cooling and there have been efforts to raise these temperatures for political and scientific gain--taxes and research dollars. There has been a clear effort to intimidate and censor scientists who don't go along with the global warming scam. The e-mails at Hadley CRU even show celebration with a climate skeptic dies.
Where is our Dear Leader? Well, Mr. Obama has already figured in cap and trade taxes into his budget and deficit projections. In stead of doing the right thing and questioning the scientists at Hadley as well as NASA, who has been connected to the global warming scam, Obama is rushing off to Copenhagen now more eager than ever to get a deal--all so he can steal more from our pockets through the coming energy taxes.
Obama knows if the climate debate is lost, the government will be less likely to control you through more taxes and by limiting the amount of energy you can use. It's all part of the smart grid technology, the idea to put GPS in our cars to tax the number of miles we drive, and so many other sub schemes that have come about under Obama and his push to declare carbon dioxide, a necessary gas for life on earth, a dangerous pollutant. If he questions the debate knowing these e-mails are out, the government will be robbed of hundreds of billions of dollars each year. And to think, people actually thought Barack Obama cared about them.
