Update – With Friends Like These

A few days ago I posted a number of comments by Obama’s “friends that were less than complimentary.  At the end I purposefully left off the thousands and thousands of gaffes by his running mate and the guy next in line to the presidency, Joe Biden.  I shouldn’t be surprised that even Joe couldn’t find a way to force me to use him in the post.  IT IS EXTREMELY SCARY THAT THIS LOOSE-TONGUED IDIOT IS THE VICE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES.  He is like an overdone SNL skit though all SNL skits are almost always overdone.  I have to grudgingly admit that the new teeth and hair look better than the old Joe.  You can put new hair and teeth on a pig, but it is still Joe Biden.

Dancing on His Grave Yet Taking His Money

In what is the worst of all manners, President Obama has bragged thousands of times about “getting bin Laden,” but has recently taken campaign donations from the dead al Qaida leader.  Say what?  As his campaign did in 2008, Obama “turned off” the controls/safeguards that prevent foreign contributions to his campaign coffers.  World Net Daily had the idea to see if Osama could donate from a Pakistani Internet Protocol using a throw away credit card and a fake address.  So what do you think happened?

No Easy Day

I had not planned on reading the “firsthand account of hte mission that killed Osama Bin Laden (UBL),” but there has been so much writhing and hand-wringing and threats and whining I thought that I’d weigh in and give the former Navy SEAL some of my hard EARNED money. No Easy Day, first off, is an extremely well written book that grabbed me and forced me to read it in about a day.  One may want to give credit to the co-author, Kevin Maurer, but I have to remember that to be a SEAL doesn’t just mean that you are good at killing people.  These young men are the best of the best and then the best of those are chosen to be special operations forces.  Mark Owen (a psuedonym – he has since been outed, but I won’t do that) shares some of his other missions leading to UBL’s untimely death (it should have been many years before).

2011 Top Ten News Stories

I hesitate to call my list “news stories” because many of them have not been covered by the Obama-media because they would make the liberal administration look like the miserable failure that it has been.  On with the list.

  1. The Economy:  If you look past the cheerleading reporting that the recession is over and jobs are being created, and a falling unemployment percent, you might just see how bad things still are.  I don’t remember a time where I have sweated my employment for so long.  I am not consumed, but the gnawing feeling is always there in the background.  As of November 2011 the U6 Unemployment (U-6 = Total unemployed, plus all persons marginally attached to the labor force, plus total employed part time for economic reasons, as a percent of the civilian labor force plus all persons marginally attached to the labor force) rate is 15.6 percent. 

News Briefs – Volume XXV

News briefs are a collection of interesting news stories…

Brief 1: Never content to accept a win, special interest groups (perhaps the bane of our society) have already begun to dissect America’s victory when a team of soldiers killed Osama. The Onondaga Indian tribe released a statement criticizing the use of the code name “Geronimo” for bin Laden,

“Think of the outcry if they had used any other ethnic group’s hero. Geronimo bravely and heroically defended his homeland and his people, eventually surrendering and living out the rest of his days peacefully, if in captivity…Geronimo is arguably the most recognized Native American name in the world and this comparison only serves to perpetuate negative stereotypes about our people…Why would that be honorable to us? All they know is just cowboys and Indians, the stuff they saw on TV.”

We Are Not At War With Islam

Lest You Forget!

Lest You Forget!

The title of this piece is sort of a quote from a speech that President Obama gave to the Turkish legislature in April 2009.  His actual words were; “The United States is not, and will never be, at war with Islam.”  Many of his and his administrations actions certainly bear out his words.  In light of the recent events at Fort Hood and his response to that tragedy, I started to look back at his words and more importantly his actions.  I should let you know that by “his actions” I do mean things that he has done and that members of his administration have done.
