Happy America Charles Brown

I didn’t dare use the name of the Cashew comic strip for fear of getting a nasty note from some lawyer like I did from Gary Larson’s legal team. Here are a few comic strips you probably won’t see in most media outlets…

Deputy prime minister Dmitry Rogozin posted a picture on his Twitter account of President Vladimir Putin petting a leopard next to one of Mr Obama holding a fluffy poodle, with the caption “we have different values and allies.”

The Liberty Amendments

liberty amendmentsI feel bad for Mark Levin and unfortunately for the rest of America too.  He puts forth in The Liberty Amendments a framework for “restoring the American republic” and one that will in no way shape or form be instituted.  Perhaps he too admits this early in the book with a quote about soft tyranny by Alexis de Tocqueville;

Don’t Piss On My Leg…

Is Petraeus carrying the ball for Obama?

I’m imagining a high school kid sitting in the principal’s outer office waiting for his sure to be angry parents to arrive.  They were summoned by the school because of the student’s misdeed.  The tiny little brain is churning, trying desperately to come up with an excuse; any reason to wiggle out of this tough spot; as if this couldn’t be helped; as if it wasn’t their fault.  What kind of a whopper would they come up with?

Obama In His Own Words – Transparency

“The Freedom of Information Act should be administered with a clear presumption: In the face of doubt, openness prevails. The Government should not keep information confidential merely because public officials might be embarrassed by disclosure, because errors and failures might be revealed, or because of speculative or abstract fears. Nondisclosure should never be based on an effort to protect the personal interests of Government officials at the expense of those they are supposed to serve. In responding to requests under the FOIA, executive branch agencies should act promptly and in a spirit of cooperation, recognizing that such agencies are servants of the public.”

Obama In His Own Words – The Middle East

This is a new series prompted by the recent attacks against America by radical Muslims.  One must consider that our embassies are American soil and rather than react strongly, Obama has sent out his advisers to continue his apology tour further projecting weakness that is his not ours.  Here are his own words from November 2008 (You can listen to the audio at the end if you wish;

It’s Not Civics, It’s Politics

From the workshop - Sorry about the quality...I was sitting in the back

That is the recurring message delivered by author Dr. Timothy Daughtry to an enthusiastic audience of about one hundred and fifty “activists” yesterday afternoon.  The funny part is none of us in attendence were activits.  We were just mainstream Americans who are very concerned about the direction that our country is being driven by the far left.  “Driven” may not be the correct term as it seems like we are being “herded.”  We peaceful Americans want to enjoy our families, work hard, play hard, and basically want to be left alone.  Between elections we expect our elected officials to keep their promises and act in ways that do not require our oversight.  That really hasn’t worked really well for American ideals for the last century.

Waking the Sleeping Giant

How many of you just let obnoxious, misleading (i.e. lies, falsehoods), arrogant comments just slide by when uttered by the left? In the interest of peace and not starting an argument most of us let things slide. We are not by nature confrontational. In essence we are the “sleeping giant.” We are MAINSTREAM AMERICA and we are generally silent with our beliefs.

Rules for Radical Conservatives

“Ivan is thrilled.  Mikhail is devastated.  All their lives, they have been equal, the way good Soviet Men should be.  They had nothing, and nothing is what they shared equally.  You could not have asked for a purer expression of true communism.  As Mikhail watches Ivan’s lot improve, he seethes.  He complains to the local soviet, but there’s nothing they can do, because even in the U.S.S.R., it’s not against the law to have a cow.  Mikhail briefly considers reporting his friend to the Cheka, but finally decides against it; after all, he’s not a bad man, just a poor man…he does something he’d almost forgotten how to do.  He prays…’All my life I have striven to be a good atheist and not believe in you.  But now, I humbly come to you directly.  Please, God, please hear my prayer.  Please make us equal again.’  For a moment all is silent.  Then, to his utter amazement, a voice emerges out of the clouds, a voice that only he can hear, ‘Mikhail,’ says God, ‘your prayers have been answered.  You shall be made equal again.’  Mikhail leaps to his feet in disbelief.  A look of transfigured radience plays across his noble Slavic peasant features.  He cannot believe his good fortune. ‘Oh good!’ he exclaims. ‘You’re going to kill Ivan’s cow!”
