A great article by Ann Coulter

Teaching Democrats New Tricks

Fresh off my triumph over Kwanzaa, I thought I'd mention a couple of other facts that some of us are forced to keep repeating because liberals refuse to learn.

Ravens can learn to snatch fishermen's untended lines to get fish. Worms learn not to eat harmful bacteria (as opposed to the tasty nutritious bacteria they normally feed on). Fruit fly larvae can learn to detect the scent of predators.

But liberals cannot learn that the Aug. 6, 2001, Presidential Daily Briefing titled "Bin Laden Determined to Strike in the U.S." had not a speck of what we call "useful information."

I described the Aug. 6 PDB in detail in my 2006 book "Godless: The Church of Liberalism." The memo read like a fifth-grader's book report that he left to the last minute and had to quickly cobble together with old information on Google. The only "warnings" of future actions by al-Qaida were completely wrong -- for example, suggesting that terrorists might be planning an attack "with explosives" or preparing to attack "federal buildings in New York."

But liberals cite the Aug. 6 PDB as if it were a clarion warning of the 9/11 attacks.

On Dec. 3 this year, MSNBC's Keith Olbermann angrily announced that the Aug. 6 PDB "could have included copies of the terrorist itineraries and the message from the future," but if the president didn't "act on it or perhaps did not even read it," it wouldn't make any difference.

In fact, if Bush had directed all members of the executive branch to drop everything and jump on the "warnings" in the Aug. 6 PDB, bomb-sniffing dogs would have been prowling the nation and police lookouts would have been stationed at federal buildings in New York City -- as planes smashed into the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.

True, the title of the PDB was "Bin Laden Determined to Strike in the U.S." I have a memo on 10,000 waitresses in Los Angeles titled: "Aspiring Actresses Determined to Succeed in Hollywood."

But liberals endlessly repeat the same falsehoods like Stalinist party members, long after normal people have learned the truth and moved on.

Another Stalinesque classic is the left's claim that Sen. Saxby Chambliss ran an ad challenging Max Cleland's patriotism in the 2002 Senate campaign. I've seen the ad. You can see it, too: It's all over the Internet. It does not challenge Cleland's patriotism.

The ad begins by noting that America is facing "terrorists and extremist dictators" -- briefly showing pictures of them -- and goes on to say that although Cleland said he "supports Bush at every opportunity," in fact he had voted against "the president's vital Homeland security efforts 11 times."

Again, as I noted in "How to Talk to a Liberal (If You Must)," Cleland voted against the establishment of a Homeland Security Department ... because it didn't allow for unionization of the work force:

OH MY GOD! THERE'S A PLANE HEADED FOR THE WHITE HOUSE!

Sorry, I'm on my break. Please call back in two hours.

It was a completely legitimate campaign ad -- urgent in fact -- having nothing to do with Cleland's patriotism, but rather addressing his voting record (and, I would add, his sanity).

And yet, on MSNBC'S "Countdown" the host and guests vented their spleens at the ad all over again this year, during Chambliss' runoff re-election.

On Nov. 7, Olbermann called it "one of the most shameful moments in the history of American politics." His equally screechy guest Craig Crawford exclaimed: "I was horrified by what Chambliss did to (Cleland) in that campaign!"

On the Dec. 1 "Countdown," Margaret Carlson said: "I don't think enough attention can ever be paid to the ads that were run against Max Cleland. I'm waiting to hear if Chambliss apologizes for that someday."

At least liberals no longer lyingly claim Cleland lost his limbs because of a Viet Cong grenade. So there is that small victory. Soon, perhaps they'll learn to stop eating harmful bacteria.

Someday, I could stop writing new columns altogether and could just repost columns and book excerpts I've already written disproving the same yarns liberals spin over and over again.

One thing I don't miss about Colorado

I am a Coloradan. I was born in Alabama but by nature of being a military brat, I left Alabama when I was 5 to move to Okinawa as my father was in the military. When we came back to the states, though I thought we would go back to Alabama, we ended up moving to Colorado. So I lived in Colorado most of my life and accepted that I am a Coloradan. Even though I live in Arizona, I still consider myself a Coloradan. I love Colorado and if circumstances present itself, I will probably go back. But there is one thing I don't miss about Colorado. My brother sent me this picture from Colorado Springs. As I sit here in Arizona where it's about 65 degrees and relatively sunny, I ain't missing that snow.

Question...

You know, I wonder if God looks down and sees these kinds of sunsets and says "Hmmm, that was some good work there." I took this outside the station (it was actually video I shot on my Mino video recorder) while I was out having a cigarette.

Someone has a sense of humor

So I am watching (rather I am switching air at work really, I have no choice but to watch) "Last Call with Carson Daly" last night and who shows up other than Eddie Steeples. Now that name might not ring a bell, but he is best known as the Staples "rubber band man" and better known as "Crabman" on the show "Earl". I have to say that Earl is one of the few shows that NBC has that is really worth anything, seeing as how they program so much junk anymore, Remember the Rosie special? Anyway, I do like Earl even though it's cast are another group of limousine liberals. But at least, they don't take too many shots at the President (and I mean President Bush, not Comrade Obama).

(As a side note, why is it that liberals produce and program most shows on the networks? I think it is really another example of say, how conservative talk radio is popular, yet liberals never have any real success at it. I think it's the same way for TV. I bet if some talented conservative writers and producers created some decent shows, the ratings would be a helluva lot better than they are. But I digress.)

Anyway, as I am watching, Steeples talks about his wiki entry and how it says he's married, but he really isn't. I don't know why, but I decided to read his wiki entry and got to the bottom and read something that wasn't supposed to be there. I immediately saved the screen shot and thought I would post it. Click on the picture and look where I highlighted the text. It was gone later, you can go check. But whoever did this obviously feels the same way about Carson Daly that I do, he just sucks. He should have stayed at MTV as he is not very good at being a host.

And another thing

Yep, her "Variety" show bombed on NBC. Best news I have heard all week.

Guns N Roses new album

After what, 17 years in the making and 13 million, can you say "pretentious"?

Rock n Roll is not rocket science nor is it hard to figure out, but this has to rank along with another group that's pretentious, Fleetwood Mac.

You got your money Axl, you got the fame, so just go quietly into the night. This ain't rock n roll, it's just your ego looking for more stroking.

Snoopy

I am not much of an animal person. I mean I like animals, but I am not real crazy about dogs, they tend to get in the way and seem "needy". But I do like cats. I have always heard the theory that people who are dog people like to dominate other people and have bigger egos than most whereas people who like cats, aren't usually concerned with dominating anything. I don't know if that's true, but I just like cats. I prefer not having to every 5 minutes, let the dog out or in, or the constant barking. My favorite cat I have ever had was Buddy, but at only 8 years old, he passed away. I have never had nor seen a cat like him. Even as far as a cat, he was really different.

Anyway, the cat that has my attention now is Shammy. And this is a picture of her on top of my 16 track reel-to-reel in my studio. She has taken to sleeping there when I am in the studio and I have therefore given her the pet name "Snoopy" since she reminds me of Snoopy on top of his dog house, LOL.

And if you want any more evidence of his being a socialist...

Read this. It is no joke. This was released by the Communists of St. Petersburg regarding the election of Comrade Obama. This is scary. They endorse Obama. As I said, this is no joke. They really must feel that with Comrade Obama's election, the resurgence of the socialist ideal is alive and well and in all places, the United States. They also call for John McCain to shoot himself for being defeated! I am also providing the link to their site, though it is Russian (Cyrillic) and unless you have a translator or read Russian, you won't understand it. Below is the actual text that was translated.


Communists of Petersburg on Obama Victory

The Secretary of the Volkhov District Committee of the Communist Party Katerina Petrova has expressed the Party's position in her statement regarding the victory in the presidential election of the candidate of the liberal wing of the Democrat Party Barack Obama:

"The days of the bloodthirsty and thieving Bush administration are ending. The American people have rejected the rabid Russophobia and anti-Sovietism of McCain. We, the Communists, believe that McCain must respond to his own defeat like an honorable officer and shoot himself in the head. Or there will be no respect left for him.

Even though Obama was supported by many left-wing forces in the U.S., including - at our request - The Communist Party of America, Barack is clearly being controlled by the Pentagon and Wall Street. Comrade Zyuganov has correctly observed with dismay that Obama is surrounded by slithering certified Russophobes - Brzezinski and the maniacal Albright. Therefore, Russia cannot lower its guard - we must be prepared for the continuation of the Cold War. But there still is a chance that Barack Obama chooses a realistic policy and brings new people into his team. The Communists and the Socialist Party USA, as well as Negro organizations, must demand that Obama appoint their representatives to key management positions! Let's also hope that Obama is intelligent enough to reach out to Venezuela, Cuba, Syria, Korea, Zimbabwe, and Palestine.

We would like to alert the progressive forces of America: if Obama chooses the policies of reason and renounces Bush's policies of aggression and intervention, the CIA will try to assassinate the new president. To this end, the American Left must hide Obama in some sort of Uncle Tom's cabin. But in the event Obama succumbs to the pressure from the bankers and the military reactionaries, all the workers who have contributed money to his campaign must withdraw their dollars back.

We have noticed the hope and enthusiasm with which the people's America is celebrating the Negro boy's victory; how it is being cheered in the streets of American towns and villages by common toilers who are tired of the war in Iraq, of the absolute power of monopolies, of the hawks in the White House; it is impossible not to get excited at the sight of the dark-skinned Americans - so thirsty for change... You better not mislead them, Barack Obama! Do not leave them exposed to the forces of blind fate! Do not betray the legacy of glorious Americans - Lincoln, Roosevelt, and Martin Luther King! Or you won't be worth a red cent!"

If you want evidence that Obama supporters have no clue...

...watch this. Taken from video interviews outside a polling place, when asked questions about the candidates. You can tell by the responses, that most of these people got their information (or lack thereof) from the non-job the MSM did. Funny how they seem to be able to know about Sarah Palin and the myths surrounding her, the clothes issue (she didn't buy them, the RNC did), the whole "I can see Russia from my house" (which isn't what she said, that was a creation of SNL) and other things.

Plainly spoken, these people are idiots. They have no clue who Reid-Pelosi or Barney Frank is, the don't know what Comrade Obama said about the coal industry and they didn't know about about the 57 states gaffe he made as well as they obviously don't understand the theory of free-market economics, instead, saying "redistribute the wealth? sure". This is probably a small sampling of the people who voted for Comrade Obama. If there was any argument to be made that voters prove they are literate, and cognizant of how the government works and who is currently in government, this is it. This is just amazing and sad at the same time that so many people are so stupid.

Fascinating letter from Cory the Driller to Comrade Obama

This has been circulating around the net and yes, it's true. This guy, Cory Miller, is representative of what a real American is like, not some liberal socialist. Below is an interview on FNC with Miller. This is but one of they guys that Comrade Obama wants to raise taxes on. Read this letter and you get a good sense of what a Real American, yes I said a Real American thinks of the pending socialism and the twisted mindset of liberal socialists and expected entitlement. We seem to have morphed into a country dominated by wussy oprahfied, people. No wonder male enhancement pills are being handed out like candy, there are very few real Americans that have any balls to fend for themselves and instead want to rely on government subsistence.

Mr. Obama,

Given the uproar about the simple question asked you by Joe the plumber, and the persecution that has been heaped on him because he dared to question you, I find myself motivated to say a few things to you myself. While Joe aspires to start a business someday, I already have started not one, but 4 businesses. But first, let me introduce myself. You can call me “Cory the well driller”. I am a 54-year-old high school graduate. I didn’t go to college like you, I was too ready to go “conquer the world” when I finished high school. 25 years ago at age 29, I started my own water well drilling business at a time when the economy here in East Texas was in a tailspin from the crash of the early 80’s oil boom. I didn’t get any help from the government, nor did I look for any. I borrowed what I could from my sister, my uncle, and even the pawnshop and managed to scrape together a homemade drill rig and a few tools to do my first job. My businesses did not start not a result of privilege. It is the result of my personal drive, personal ambition, self-discipline, self reliance, and a determination to treat my customers fairly. From the very start my business provided one other (than myself) East Texan a full time job. I couldn’t afford a backhoe the first few years (something every well drilling business had), so I and my helper had to dig the mud pits that are necessary for each and every job with hand shovels. I had to use my 10-year-old, ½-ton pickup truck for my water tank truck (normally a job for at least a 2 ton truck).

A year and a half after I started the business, I scraped together a 20% down payment to get a modest bank loan and bought a (28 year) old, worn out, slightly bigger drilling rig to allow me to drill the deeper water wells in my area. I spent the next few years drilling wells with the rig while simultaneously rebuilding it between jobs. Through these years I never knew from one month to the next if I would have any work or be able to pay the bills. I got behind on my income taxes one year, and spent the next two years paying that back (with penalty and interest) while keeping up with ongoing taxes. I got behind on my water well supply bill 2 different years (way behind the second time… $80,000.00), and spent over a year paying it back (each time) while continuing to pay for ongoing supplies C.O.D. Of course, the personal stress endured through these experiences and years is hard to measure. I do have a stent in my heart now to memorialize it all.

I spent the next 10 years developing the reputation for being the most competent and most honest water well driller in East Texas. 2 years along the way, I hired another full time employee for the drilling business so that we could provide full time water well pump service as well as the well drilling. Also, 3 years along the path, I bought a water well screen service machine from a friend, starting business # 2. 5 years later I made a business loan for $100,000.00 to build a new, higher production, computer controlled screen service machine. I had designed the machine myself, and it didn’t work out for 3 years so I had to make the loan payments without the benefit of any added income from the new machine. No government program was there to help me with the payments, or to help me sleep at night, as I lay awake wondering how I would solve my machine problems or pay my bills. Finally, after 3 years, I got the screen machine working properly, and that provided another full time job for an East Texan in the screen service business.

2 years after that, I made another business loan, this time for $250,000.00, to buy another used drilling rig and all the support equipment needed to run another, larger, drill rig. This provided another 2 full time jobs for East Texans. Again, I spent a couple of years not knowing if I had made a smart move, or a move that would bankrupt me. For the third time in 13 years, I had placed everything I owned on the line, risking everything, in order to build a business.
A couple of years into this, I came up with a bright idea for a new kind of mud pump, a fundamentally necessary pump used on water well drill rigs. I spent my entire life savings to date (just $30,000.00), building a prototype of the pump and took it to the national water well convention to show it off. Customers immediately started coming out of the woodworks to buy the pumps, but there was a problem. I had depleted my assets making the prototype, and nobody would make me a business loan to start production of the new pumps. With several deposits for pump orders in hand, and nowhere to go, I finally started applying for as many credit card as I could find and took cash withdrawals on these cards to the tune of over $150,000.00 (including modest loans from my dear sister and brother), to get this 3rd business going.

Yes, once again, I had everything hanging over the line in an effort to start another business. I had never manufactured anything, and I had to design and bring into production a complex hydraulic machine from an untested prototype to a reliable production model (in six months). How many nights I lay awake wondering if I had just made the paramount mistake of my life I cannot tell you, but there were plenty. I managed to get the pumps into production, which immediately created another 2 full time jobs in East Texas. Some of the models in the first year suffered from quality issues due to the poor workmanship of one of my key suppliers, so an employee and I (another East Texan employed) had to drive across the country to repair customers’ pumps, practically from coast to coast. I stood behind the product, and made payments to all the credit cards that had financed me (and my brother and sister). I spent the next 5 years improving and refining the product, building a reputation for the pump and the company, working to get the pump into drill rig manufacturers’ product lines, and paying back credit cards. During all this time I continued to manage a growing water well business that was now operating 3 drill rig crews, and 2 well service crews. Also, the screen service business continued to grow. No government programs were there to help me, Mr. Obama, but that’s ok, I didn’t expect any, nor did I want any. I was too busy fighting to make success happen to sit around waiting for the government to help me.

Now, we have been manufacturing the mud pumps for 7 years, my combined businesses employ 32 full time employees, and distribute $5,000,000.00 annually through the local economy. Now, just 4 months ago I borrowed $1,254,000.00, purchasing computer controlled machining equipment to start my 4th business, a production machine shop. The machine shop will serve the mud pump company so that we can better manufacture our pumps that are being shipped worldwide. Of course, the machine shop will also do work for outside companies as well. This has already produced 2 more full time jobs, and 2 more should develop out of it in the next few months. This should work out, but if it doesn’t it will be because you, and the other professional politicians like yourself, will have destroyed our country’s’ (and the world) economy with your meddling with mortgage loan programs through your liberal manipulation and intimidation of loaning institutions to make sure that unqualified borrowers could get mortgages. You see, at the very time when I couldn’t get a business loan to get my mud pumps into production, you were working with Acorn and the Community Reinvestment Act programs to make sure that unqualified borrowers could buy homes with no down payment, and even no credit or worse yet, bad credit. Even the infamous, liberal, Ninja loans (No Income, No Job or Assets). While these unqualified borrowers were enjoying unrealistically low interest rates, I was paying 22% to 24% interest on the credit cards that I had used to provide me the funds for the mud pump business that has created jobs for more East Texans. It’s funny, because after 25 years of turning almost every dime of extra money back into my businesses to grow them, it has been only in the last two years that I have finally made enough money to be able to put a little away for retirement, and now the value of that has dropped 40% because of the policies you and your ilk have perpetrated on our country.

You see, Mr. Obama, I’m the guy you intend to raise taxes on. I’m the guy who has spent 25 years toiling and sweating, fretting and fighting, stressing and risking, to build a business and get ahead. I’m the guy who has been on the very edge of bankruptcy more than a dozen times over the last 25 years, and all the while creating more and more jobs for East Texans who didn’t want to take a risk, and wouldn’t demand from themselves what I have demanded from myself. I’m the guy you characterize as “the Americans who can afford it the most” that you believe should be taxed more to provide income redistribution “to spread the wealth” to those who have never toiled, sweated, fretted, fought, stressed, or risked anything. You want to characterize me as someone who has enjoyed a life of privilege and who needs to pay a higher percentage of my income than those who have bought into your entitlement culture. I resent you, Mr. Obama, as I resent all who want to use class warfare as a tool to advance their political career. What’s worse, each year more Americans buy into your liberal entitlement culture, and turn to the government for their hope of a better life instead of themselves. Liberals are succeeding through more than 40 years of collaborative effort between the predominant liberal media, and liberal indoctrination programs in the public school systems across our land.

What is so terribly sad about this is this. America was made great by people who embraced the one-time American culture of self-reliance, self-motivation, self-determination, self-discipline, personal betterment, and hard work, risk taking. A culture built around the concept that success was in reach on every able bodied American who would strive for it. Each year that less Americans embrace that culture, we all descend together. We descend down the socialist path that has brought country after country ultimately to bitter and unremarkable states. If you and your liberal comrades in the media and school systems would spend half as much effort cultivating a culture of can-do across America as you do cultivating your entitlement culture, we could see Americans at large embracing the conviction that they can elevate themselves through personal betterment, personal achievement, and self reliance. You see, when people embrace such ideals, they act on them. When people act on such ideals, they succeed. All of America could find herself elevating instead of deteriorating. But that would eliminate the need for liberal politicians, wouldn’t it, Mr. Obama? The country would not need you if the country was convinced that problem solving was best left with individuals instead of the government. You and all your liberal comrades have got a vested interested in creating a dependent class in our country. It is the very business of liberals to create an ever-expanding dependence on government. What’s remarkable is that you, who have never produced a job in your life, are going to tax me to take more of my money and give it to people who wouldn’t need my money if they would get off their entitlement mentality asses and apply themselves at work, demand more from themselves, and quit looking to liberal politicians to raise their station in life.
You see, I know because I’ve had them work for me before. Hundreds of them over these 25 years. People who simply will not show up to work on time. People who just will not work 5 days in a week, much less, 6 days. People always looking for a way to put less effort out. People who actually tell me that they would do more if I just would first pay them more. People who take off work to sit in government offices to apply to get free government handouts (gee, I wonder how things would have turned out for them if they had spent that time earning money and pleasing their employer?). You see, all of this comes from your entitlement mentality culture.

Oh, I know you will say I am uncompassionate. Sorry, Mr. Obama, wrong again. You see, I’ve seen what the average percentage of your income has been given to charities over the years of 2000 to 2004 (ignoring the years you started running for office - can you pronounce “politically motivated”); you averaged of less than 1% annually. And your running mate, Joe Biden, averaged less than ¼% of his annual income in charitable contributions over the last 10 years. Like so many liberals, the two of you want to give to the needy, just as long as it is someone else’s money you are giving to them. I won’t say what I have given to charities over the last 25 years, but the percentage is several times more than you or Joe Biden (don’t you just hate goggle?). Tell me again how you feel my pain.

In short, Mr. Obama, your political philosophies represent everything that is wrong with our country. You represent the culture of government dependence instead of self-reliance; Entitlement mentality instead of personal achievement; Penalization of the successful to reward the unmotivated; Political correctness instead of open mindedness and open debate. If you are successful, you may preside over the final transformation of America from being the greatest and most self-reliant culture on earth, to just another country of whiners and wimps, who sit around looking to the government to solve their problems. Like all of western Europe. All countries on the decline. All countries that, because of liberal socialistic mentalities, have a little less to offer mankind every year.

God help us…

Socialism comes to America

The election of Barack Obama as "President" is significant and historic in 2 ways. First off, being a black man and the first black man elected to the office is historic. I would only hope that those out there, usually black, would finally dispense with "this is a racist country". But I am more than willing to bet, if you disagree with his policies, you're a racist, if you call him a socialist (which he is), you're a racist, if you don't like him, you're a racist. I had some time ago, a co-worker where I work call me a "racist" because I told him I don't like hip-hop and think it doesn't take anything more than a beat and someone screaming some obscene nonsense to make. For that, I am a racist. I don't like country music all that much, so what does that mean? I believe that far from being a "uniter", what will happen is, that anyone who disagrees with him and his policies will fall under the umbrella of being a racist. Too bad, if that makes me a racist, so be it. Because I am not. I grew up with friends of mine while I was a military brat, whose parents were a black man and a white woman, and it never occurred to me to think about what color they were. I never really experienced racism until I started into public school and what a shock that was.

Contrary to what they claim, "we" meaning the US and not me, elected the first black man to president and are the first industrialized western country to do something like this. The second reason why, is for perhaps for the first time in America's history, we have elected a radical socialist to office. I have no problem with electing a black man to the office, certainly I admire quite a few, Michael Steele, JC Watts, Alan Keyes (often called a crazy uncle of the republican party) or even to an extent, Colin Powell. Hell, I would welcome Condi Rice as the first black woman as president, except that her own people displaying their racist tendencies, don't think she is "one of them". It's funny to see how now Colin Powell is "one of them" ever since he endorsed the Dalibam-uh. Before, he was an Uncle Tom.

I have never understood why black people vote democrat or as I now refer to them, the liberal socialists. After all, Martin Luther King was a republican, it was Eisenhower that really instituted segregating the military (even though Truman signed it into law), it was the republicans that fought to push through both de-segregation and the civil rights laws we have today, all the while Kennedy (who opposed the civil rights act while a senator) and the democrats fought tooth and nail to deny blacks equality in this country. Yet to hear someone like Marion Barry once state, "Lincoln was a republican? he couldn't have been a republican, he freed the slaves!" shows you how ignorant of history many, and not just blacks, are about history.

And it was President Lincoln that freed the slaves. The liberal socialist party (democrats) brought you Jim Crow, the KKK and violent opposition to allowing blacks the same rights as whites. And on top of that, the liberal socialists have distorted the history and really to be perfectly blunt, the so-called "black leaders" have done no justice for their people as they see the democratic party as a back channel way to reparations by basically giving their constituents welfare and free handouts in order to keep them placated. They say that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again expecting a different result, I would dare say, blacks that keep voting democrat expecting them to help are suffering from some sort of insanity. In essence what the democrats keep doing, is placing the blacks into positions of hand-outs and keeping them "down on the plantation".

I really hate to say it, but I think most blacks that don't know history other than their own lives, feel as if they are "entitled" somehow to free handouts. They have bought into this myth that by voting democrat, somehow their lives are going to be better. And they have swallowed this fallacy that the democrats have done more to improve their lives than republicans. Improved it how? by giving them welfare? by taking away through welfare, the responsibility of their men to be fathers? by promising a mule and 40 acres? Already we have seen an example of this in Florida with someone people are calling "Peggy the Moocher". This is what she had to say at a Dalibam-uh rally in Florida:

Who is Peggy the Moocher? She's Peggy Joseph, a voter in Sarasota, Fla., who exulted earlier this week at a Barack Obama rally that this was "the most memorable time of my life." Why? As she told a Florida reporter on a YouTube video that has been viewed by hundreds of thousands: "Because I never thought this day would ever happen. I won't have to worry about putting gas in my car. I won't have to worry about paying my mortgage. You know. If I help (Obama), he's gonna help me."

video
Like another famous liberal, Oprah Winfrey, the Lord Messiah, the Dalibam-uh is going to buy her a car, fill up her tank, pay her mortgage and buy her a new HDTV! This is the mindset of these liberals. Gimme, Gimme, Gimme... cos you owe it to me! I am waiting for Oprah Winfrey to invite Peggy on her show and hail her as a national hero!

And yet all the liberal socialists have done is promise handouts to minorities only to disappoint them in the end. And if you want to talk about racism, I heard a co-worker say at work that he was voting for Comrade Obama simply because he was black. If that is not racism, I don't know what is.

But back to as I will call him, Comrade Obama. I can not bring myself to call him "President". Knowing what I know after studying him. For 8 years, I have endured the name calling and downright malicious attacks on President Bush and yet now, I am expected to call Comrade Obama "President"? To me that's a bit like calling Hitler the Prime Minister if I was french during WWII when Hitler had a stranglehold on France. With his election and the troika of Obama-Reid-Pelosi, we are going to have a politburo as opposed to congress, with Comrade Obama as First Secretary. He wants to be my president too? then cut taxes, leave the Bush tax cuts alone, let the troops finish the job they were sent to do and put an end to abortion, partial birth abortion especially. What? he won't do that? then why should I call him President. For 8 years I have heard Bush called names, caricatured as a monkey, a buffon, Alfred E Newman and worst of all, Adolf Hitler, and yet they expect me to swoon over the Dalibam-uh? I don't think so.

So now, nothing can be done, other than to grit your teeth and hope that the republicans finally get off their asses and start acting like the party they should be. There needs to be strong opposition to Comrade Obama's policies. Otherwise, we start down the slippery slope toward a real socialist state. I have heard friends of mine saying that I should not be so critical toward Comrade Obama, as he is the elected president and that by taking the stance I have, I am acting like the kooky leftist that now run the liberal socialists and reducing myself to their level. That may be true, but I voted for a President of a representative republic, not a socialist state, and I am not going to change my principals for anyone. Comrade Obama is a very dangerous man, especially with the Reid-Pelosi partnership that has the potential to wreck this country beyond what it was envisioned to be by the founders. It's going to be a long seige, a very long seige.

Another prominent republican endorses the Dalibam-uh

Like many of the other republicans that have been dismayed by the endorsement of the Lord most merciful, the messiah, the Dalibam-uh (peace be upon him) by what we thought were conservatives or "good" republicans, I was a bit taken aback by Colin Powell's endorsement, even though I knew from what Bill Kristol said a few months back was going to happen. Now I am in utter dismay. After reading this endorsement from T. Coddington Van Voorhees VII,
I am just shocked. Yet another republican has fallen under the Dalibam-uhs spell. "T-bag" as he's known to his friends has become yet one more sell-0ut. Say it ain't so T-bag!


As a Conservative, I Must Say I Do Quite Like the Cut of this Obama Fellow's Jib

By T. Coddington Van Voorhees VII
Columnist, The National Topsider
Membership Chairman, The Newport Club

When my late father T. Coddington Van Voorhees VI founded the iconoclastic conservative journal National Topsider in 1948, he famously declared that "Now is the time for all good conservative helmsmen to hoist the mizzen, pour the cocktails, and steer this damned schooner hard starboard."

In the 60 years since he first uttered it after one-too-many Cosmopolitans at one of Pamela Harriman's notorious foreign policy black tie balls, father's pithy bon mot has served as a rallying cry for conservatives from Greenwich to Chevy Chase. Today, I say it's time for we conservatives to once again grab the rigging and set sail with the flotilla of the true conservative in this race: Barack Obama.

Trust me, I haven't taken this tack lightly. No Van Voorhees has supported an avowed socialist since great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great grandpapa Cragmont Van Voorhees lent Peter Minuet $24 and a sack of wampum to swing a subprime mortgage on Manhattan Island. Old dad himself often recounted how, as a lad, he would command the family chauffeur Carleton to drive the Duesenberg down to the Times Square Trans-Lux so he could hiss Roosevelt.

But I've taken a good measure of this Obama fellow, and I must say I like the cut of the man's jib.

How can I say this, you ask? One look at this Obama chap is all the answer you need. Suave, tanned, unflappable, Harvard connections; it's obvious that here is a man to the conservative manor born. One imagines him at the helm of the Ship of State, basked in the sunlight diffusing through the seaspray over the bow, like some beautiful rugged Othello from a rapturous Ralph Lauren catalog, calmly issuing instructions to the deck crew in that magnificent mellifluous baritone of his.

It's that easy-going, almost effortless grace that has all the A-list conservatives like David Frum and Kathleen Parker whispering Reaganesque in hushed tones. Even Peggy Noonan -- the Grand Dame of Gipperism -- has succumbed to Obama's undeniable conservative charms.

Just last month I listened to her wax poetic about the Adonis of Chicago between chukkers at the Newport Club polo tournament final. "Why Peggy, you old dowager," I quipped, "I believe you just had an orgasm."

Certainly, my endorsement has raised more than a few eyebrows around the National Topsideris hooey, over-the-top rhetorical flourishes obviously designed by Mr. Obama to win over benighted inner city hoi polloi (a feat, I might add, that even the Great Communicator himself was unable to accomplish).

As for his so-called radical ties, who among us hasn't sent dinner party invitations to Gore Vidal and a leftwing terrorist or two to enliven the postprandial conversation? Leonard Bernstein loved hosting all manner of Weathermen and Black Panthers and Symbionese Liberation Army celebrities at his Park Avenue pied a terre, but it didn't mean the Maestro wasn't in favor of low taxes.

On the contrary; I know for a fact he itemized every cent of the catering bills for his famous terrorist cocktail parties. water cooler, particularly among the alumni of jejune cow colleges like Michigan or Dartmouth. They sometimes point to Mr. Obama's radical Rolodex and his hooey about "wealth redistribution" and "dictatorship of the proletariat." But, as I patiently explain, this is precisely the point - it

Just so, I have every confidence that Obama's true conservative butterfly will emerge once in office, coaxed from its Maoist cocoon by conservatives like myself and Frum and Parker and Noonan -- all of whom I am pleased to report are already under consideration for the Obama Administration State Dinner shortlist. Certainly there may be a tax increase or two, but isn't that what estate attorneys and Cayman Island banks are for? Under a worst case scenario some of us may have to set up a lease-back depreciation arrangement on one or two of our vacation compounds, as Dad was forced to in the dark years of Carter.

But I'm not worried. I've got a pretty good sense for character, and I'd be willing to bet my Weejuns that inside this Obama fellow lives the soul a rock-ribbed old money Brahmin. Ask yourself: could a seriously committed Marxist carry off a Brooks Brothers suit like that? I mean, other than Dad's old commie nemesis and Harvard fencing club foe Alger Hiss.

But there is an even more compelling reason to support Barack Obama: Sarah Palin.

If you are a conservative like me, you guffawed when you heard John McCain announced this declasse rube as a running mate, followed by good-natured applause, thinking it was some sort of whimsical campus prank he was reenacting from his Annapolis years. This was, of course, quickly followed the shock of realizing that he wasn't joking, and all that Hanoi unpleasantness had finally driven him around the bend.

It's an inescapable conclusion that this woman has, in 6 short weeks, single-handedly destroyed the Republican party. Certainly George Bush may share some of the blame; but we conservatives must remember how our hopes were buoyed by his impressive bloodlines and Yale degree before we realized his excursion to Texas had caused him to "go native." But la Palin offers true conservatives no such extenuating graces. I mean, my God, this woman is simply awful; the elided vowels, the beauty pageantry, the guns, the crude non-Episcopal protestantism, the embarrassing porchload of children with horrifying hillbilly names, the white after Labor Day. As fellow conservative commentator Andrew Sullivan quipped to me the other day outside a Martha's Vineyard antique shop, it's gratifying to know the Gipper isn't alive to see what has become of his party.

But it's not just American conservatives who are appalled. Just last week conservative New York Times columnist David Brooks and I were enjoying an apres-badminton apertif at the family weekend house in Montauk with my good friend Viscount Klaus-Maria Von Wallensheim, the conservative EU Agricultural Pricing Minister with whom I shared an Alpine chalet and manservant during our years as classmates at a Swiss boarding school. "Kloonkie" (my old school appellation for the Viscount) reported the growing dismay of the Continental Right over Palin's embarrassing enthusiasm for childbirth and Israel.

"Coddsie, old chap," he warned, "You know I've always been America's biggest defender in Monaco. But if you elect this ill-bred charwoman, I will be forced to move anchor to St. Tropez out of pure shame."

David and I were left nodding silently, for how else could we respond? If Palin has lost Kloonkie, she has surely lost the entire conservative movement. The idea of this dreadful woman in Washington is almost too much to contemplate. Not only would it be a fashion disaster, one can scarcely imagine the White House social calendar -- mooseburger fetes to that ghastly Joe the Plumber, perhaps followed by snow machine derbies through the Rose Garden?

For now, we conservatives must do what we can to sabotage the ill-fated McCain-Palin fiasco and hope for the best. Once the election is over we can lick our wounds, read the entrails, and decide where the movement should go from here. In anticipation, the Topsider will be holding a top-level exclusive strategy conference in Nassau next January, featuring tout le monde of conservative intellectuals from the Back Bay Review, The Prospective Standard, National Bowtie, and The Swarthmorean. If you are attending, please be advised that gentlemen's jackets will be mandatory after six PM.

Until then, do not despair; the election of Mr. Obama means that at least some conservatives will still have a place at the table. I do hope I get seated next to this William Ayers fellow -- I've heard he has some amazingly droll anecdotes!

They call this music?

As anyone who knows me will tell you, I can't stand Rap or Hip Hop music (nor a lot of country either) as I just find it simplistic with no talent required. It just makes my head hurt and I am constantly changing the radio station, or turning down the audio on TV when ever it comes on. It doesn't take any talent at all to use a drum machine and then "rap" over it, and it might help if they learned to speak English.

Now, we have this stupid song by "Ludacris", another one of these "gangsta" "Thug" no-talent dudes putting out a "song", if you can call it that, about Obama. I don't consider this music and it doesn't help Barry Sotero (aka Barack Hussein Obama) and his campaign when you have someone like Ludacris doing something like this. How people like Ludacris can write this trash and call it music is beyond me, I'd rather listen to country, at least they can speak English without saying "yeah" all the time.

Here are the "lyrics":
"Politics, Obama is here"

I'm back on it like I just signed my record deal
yeah the best is here, the Bentley Coup paint is dripping wet, it got sex appeal
never should have hated
you never should've doubted him
with a slot in the president's iPod Obama shattered 'em
Said I handled his biz and I'm one of his favorite rappers
Well give Luda a special pardon if I'm ever in the slammer
Better yet put him in office, make me your vice president
Hillary hated on you, so that b^$&%* is irrelevant
Jesse talking slick and apologizing for what?
if you said it then you meant it how you want it have a gut!
and all you other politicians trying to hate on my man,
watch us win a majority vote in every state on my man
you can't stop what's bout to happen, we bout to make history
the first black president is destined and it's meant to be
the threats ain't fazing us, the nooses or the jokes
so get off your ass, black people, it's time to get out and vote!
paint the White House black and I'm sure that's got 'em terrified
McCain don't belong in ANY chair unless he's paralyzed
Yeah I said it cause Bush is mentally handicapped
Ball up all of his speeches and I throw em like candy wrap
cause what you talking I hear nothing even relevant
and you the worst of all 43 presidents
get out and vote or the end will be near
the world is ready for change because Obama is here!
cause Obama is here
The world is ready for change because Obama is here!

Dean plays a clip of Katie the mouse Couric interviewing Barry Obama and asks him what he thinks his biggest weakness is. You hear Dean and Generalissimo Duane making comments but BO never answers the question and just stumbles all over the question. I think this is some of the funniest radio I've heard in a while. It's 6:28 long, but at least he admits he's not a biochemist.



And to further add some insight to this, Rush Limbaugh has an official "Obama Criticizer" who happens to be none other than the great "Bo Snerdley". Rush has Bo criticize BO since BO is certified Black. So I had to include this. Courtesy Rush Limbaugh EIB network.








And you know, I really wonder if this guy is running for President or Porky Pig's job.

The loss of a comedic Icon

I saw this cross the wire tonight and thought it was sad. I really liked George Carlin and have listened to him since I was a kid.

Comedian George Carlin dies in Los Angeles at 71



Comedian George Carlin, a counter-culture hero famed for his routines about drugs and dirty words, died of heart failure at a Los Angeles-area hospital on Sunday, a spokesman said. He was 71.

Carlin, who had a history of heart and drug-dependency problems, died at Saint John's Health Center in Santa Monica about 6 p.m. PDT (9 p.m. EDT) after being admitted earlier in the afternoon for chest pains, spokesman Jeff Abraham told Reuters.

Known for his edgy, provocative material, Carlin achieved status as an anti-Establishment icon in the 1970s with stand-up bits full of drug references and a routine called "Seven Words You Can Never Say On Television." A regulatory battle over a radio broadcast of the routine ultimately reached the U.S. Supreme Court.

In the 1978 case, Federal Communications Commission vs. Pacifica Foundation, the top U.S. court ruled that the words cited in Carlin's routine were indecent, and that the government's broadcast regulator could ban them from being aired at times when children might be listening.
Carlin's comedic sensibility often came back to a central theme: humanity is doomed.

"I don't have any beliefs or allegiances. I don't believe in this country, I don't believe in religion, or a god, and I don't believe in all these man-made institutional ideas," he told Reuters in a 2001 interview.

Carlin, who wrote several books and performed in many television comedy specials, is survived by his wife Sally Wade, and daughter Kelly Carlin McCall.

When in Britain...

Well, well, well, you know most times, the weirdest studies come out of the UK. But I found this one interesting simply because, to hear the "BS" supporters say it, more people believe in "Climate change" or as it's referred to here "Blowhards Smarming" or BS for short.



Poll: most Britons doubt cause of climate change

* Juliette Jowit, environment editor
* The Observer,
* Sunday June 22, 2008


The majority of the British public is still not convinced that climate change is caused by humans - and many others believe scientists are exaggerating the problem, according to an exclusive poll for The Observer.

The results have shocked campaigners who hoped that doubts would have been silenced by a report last year by more than 2,500 scientists for the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), which found a 90 per cent chance that humans were the main cause of climate change and warned that drastic action was needed to cut greenhouse gas emissions.

The findings come just before the release of the government's long-awaited renewable energy strategy, which aims to cut the UK's greenhouse gas emissions by 20 per cent over the next 12 years.

The poll, by Ipsos MORI, found widespread contradictions, with some people saying politicians were not doing enough to tackle the problem, even though they were cynical about government attempts to impose regulations or raise taxes. In a sign of the enormous task ahead for those pushing for drastic cuts to carbon emissions, many people said they did not want to restrict their lifestyles and only a small minority believe they need to make 'significant and radical' changes such as driving and flying less.

'It's disappointing and the government will be really worried,' said Jonathon Porritt, chairman of the government's Sustainable Development Commission. 'They [politicians] need the context in which they're developing new policies to be a lot stronger and more positive. Otherwise the potential for backlash and unpopularity is considerable.'

There is growing concern that an economic depression and rising fuel and food prices are denting public interest in environmental issues. Some environmentalists blame the public's doubts on last year's Channel 4 documentary The Great Global Warming Swindle, and on recent books, including one by Lord Lawson, the former Chancellor, that question the consensus on climate change.

However Professor Bjorn Lomborg, author of The Skeptical Environmentalist, said politicians and campaigners were to blame for over-simplifying the problem by only publicising evidence to support the case. 'Things that we do know - like humans do cause climate change - are being put in doubt,' said Lomborg. 'If you're saying, "We're not going to tell you the whole truth, but we're going to ask you to pay up a lot of money," people are going to be unsure.'

In response to the poll's findings, the Department for the Environment issued a statement: 'The IPCC... concluded the scientific evidence for climate change is clear and it is down to human activities. It is already affecting people's lives - and the impact will be much greater if we don't act now.'

Ipsos MORI polled 1,039 adults and found that six out of 10 agreed that 'many scientific experts still question if humans are contributing to climate change', and that four out of 10 'sometimes think climate change might not be as bad as people say'. In both cases, another 20 per cent were not convinced either way. Despite this, three quarters still professed to be concerned about climate change.

Those most worried were more likely to have a degree, be in social classes A or B, have a higher income, said Phil Downing, Ipsos MORI's head of environmental research.

'People are broadly concerned, but not entirely convinced,' said Downing. 'Despite many attempts to broaden the environment movement, it doesn't seem to have become fully embedded as a mainstream concern,' he said.

More than half of those polled did not have confidence in international or British political leaders to tackle climate change, but only just over a quarter think it's too late to stop it. Two thirds want the government to do more but nearly as many said they were cynical about government policies such as green taxes, which they see as 'stealth' taxes.

"SUSAN SARANDON, who appeared in three films last year and won kudos for her TV movie "Bernard and Doris," is still not a contented soul. She says if John McCain gets elected, she will move to Italy or Canada. She adds, "It's a critical time, but I have faith in the American people."

Some people, I tell ya

Ya know, when I think about what character it took to explore, settle and brave the elements and other dangers in order to build this country, somehow I wasn't thinking of this. I mean, these people must be looney or there is something I am missing. Any major dude will tell you that we as humans, are bombarded constantly from RF waves every minute of every day of our lives. For these people to claim that they are being sickened by Wi-Fi, is utterly preposterous. What about radio waves? I bet they still listen to NPR. What about RF waves from their TV sets as they are watching PBS or PMSNBC or CNN? What about their microwaves? or cell phones for that matter? do they have them? they emit RF waves. I imagine too, they have Ipods so I don't get how they can claim that they are being made sick by Wi-Fi. Perhaps they need to buy one of these things.

Group wants Wi-Fi banned from public buildings

A group in Santa Fe says the city is discriminating against them because they say that they're allergic to the wireless Internet signal. And now they want Wi-Fi banned from public buildings.
Arthur Firstenberg says he is highly sensitive to certain types of electric fields, including wireless Internet and cell phones.



"I get chest pain and it doesn't go away right away," he said.


Firstenberg and dozens of other electro-sensitive people in Santa Fe claim that putting up Wi-Fi in public places is a violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act.


The city attorney is now checking to see if putting up Wi-Fi could be considered discrimination.


But City Councilor Ron Trujillo says the areas are already saturated with wireless Internet.
"It's not 1692, it's 2008. Santa Fe needs to embrace this technology, it's not going away," Trujillo said.


The city attorney hopes to have a legal recommendation by the end of the month.

Hippycrites-Celebrities that don't practice what they preach

With all the hysteria over global warming, climate change or as I call it, "BS" short for "blowhard's smarming", I thought I would start investigating and posting about the habits and excesses of self-righteous celebrities who are harping about how we have to reduce our "carbon footprint" in order to save the planet. I find it amusing how these whack jobs have the audacity to preach at common people, all the while, practicing the very excesses they pretend to loath. Let's lead off with one of the biggest hypocrites shall we? Leonardo Di (the) Crapio.

Ladies and Gentlemen, meet the new Jimmy Carter

So, Bo is out on the stump, and now he's ramping up to take on John McCain. He's already taking pot shots at McCain and in anticipation of the win in Oregon, where he is leading and expected to claim the mantle of the presumptive Democratic candidate for the General Election, he is slamming the policies of John McCain. I am not a fan of Johnny Mac. I respect his service in the US Navy and I do have respect for his hardship as a POW, but I don't agree with much of his views on things. However, in the interest of the country, I would much rather see a Johnny Mac in the White House as opposed to openly socialist candidates like Hillary "her thighness" Clinton or even further left, Good Ole' presumptive messiah, BO.

As the Bible warns, "beware of false prophets"

So, Bo is giving a speech (looking at the picture, the thought that came to mind is "the sermon on the mount" from the "messianic" candidate) and I thought I had gone back in a time machine or something. This is what he says;

"We can't drive our SUVs (bet he makes it to events and leaves in one) and eat as much as we want (I bet he's never hungry) and keep our homes on 72 degrees at all times (and I bet he does) ... and then just expect that other countries are going to say OK," Obama said.

"That's not leadership. That's not going to happen,"

My question is; why should we be concerned with what other countries think? That may sound arrogant, but think about it. Do the French care what we think? or the Germans? I am sure other countries would love to see use brought down to a 3rd world country if for any reason to punish us for our supposed "avarice". Does anyone else see what he is saying? basically, we are supposed to adopt the lifestyles and practices of other countries. What he doesn't say is that, America got to be great by being the leader in many areas. Improvements in our own lifestyle and country benefited the world, not hurt it.

We have as a country, raised the standard of living in the world. We produce more food, more technology, more wealth as a nation than any other on the face of the planet. And the thing that makes us different? We share what we have to all those that want to enjoy it, as long as they don't use it for malicious reasons. We have through our technology and improvements, created better ways of doing things that other countries hadn't figured out. Think of how long the US has been in existence and what we've accomplished as a nation and then look at the rest of the world. Our progress in so many areas for the length of time we have existed as a nation is astounding. We have brought the word "human rights" to a level not paralleled in modern human history.


Hmm, anyway, for anyone that remembers, or was alive at the time, Jimmy Carter gave a speech in the midst of the engergy crisis in the 1970's, often referred to as the "Sweater Speech" or the "Malaise speech".

On February 2, 1977, the newly-inaugurated president appeared on television clad in that sweater, and asked us all to take a simple step to save energy: turn down the thermostat, and put on a sweater.


So now, BO, jumping on what is the hottest topic right now, energy consumption, more specifically, Gas prices, says that we can't drive our SUV's anymore. Personally, I don't care for SUV's, I call them "UAV's" as in Urban Assault Vehicles. I find that many people who drive them tend to be arrogant with the mentality of "It's my road, you're just driving on it". But that is a subject for another post.


Here's a tip for you Barry, if you and your environmentalist whackos weren't too busy preventing the US from exploring and building new refineries and let the oil companies start harvesting some of the oil we have around the continental US, we wouldn't be in this position. Nuclear? no way, it is too dangerous. Drill in ANWR? nah, that sheet of sheer ice is much too pristine to allow drilling for oil. After all, the millions of tourists that visit each year might be upset with oil rigs in the proposed 33 square miles (out of how many millions?) and not come back. Not to mention the probable extinction of species that live there.


Oil derricks off the coast? Wind generators? oh no, then people like Ted the swimmer, Kennedy would lose worth in property value and it would spoil his view, not to mention the limousine liberals in California that would have to stare at those ungodly things. Oh, and by the way, guess it's okay for the Chinese to be drilling not 90 miles off our southern coast near Cuba, for oil. Ask the environmentalists why they haven't raised hell about that?


Lift federal taxes of gasoline? not on your life. The poor federal government would just go broke with no getting their share of the pie. It's the hypocrisy of the left that is astounding. Much of the issue with the price of gas can be laid squarely at the feet of the leftist environmental whackos and the democrats for not allowing the US to explore new and untouched oil reserves. Hell, if we were to start drilling in our territory, we might become energy independent in about 20 years. For a lot of people, that's 20 years too late.

And finally, has anyone else noticed how Barry is always criticizing anything about America? I never hear Barry saying anything good about America, just what's wrong with it. In the spirit of Jimmy, I am waiting for him to say, "Ladies and Gentlemen, America's best days are behind her."

Ladies and Gentlemen, please send your sweaters in care of Barry Obama.

Update on my friend Pete Christensen

For anyone that remembers, quite a while ago, I published a post about my friend Pete Christensen. Pete and I worked together at the station and we did some comedy bits for All Comedy Radio. But Pete had developed cancer. Since then, Pete's cancer has gone into remission or at the very best, it's gone all together. I posted a pic of Pete when he was in Illinois undergoing Chemotherapy where he looked like the Kung Fu Master from the old TV series Kung Fu. That's the picture on the left.

Now, you have to know Pete. I also mentioned that he is always Mr Optimist. Pete never has a bad word to say about anyone, which is certainly among others, one of his most endearing qualities. I used to kid him about always being so positive, but he just shines it on and says, "what's the point in letting it get you down?". He's right. Pete is a great comedian, that's his passion and it shows. He has the unique ability to look at life and come away with observations that most people wouldn't catch. He is just gifted at what he does.

So, Pete sends me this clip. He is now working with a songwriter, performer and fellow comedian, Ian Calvin as "the blackjack brothers". They have a website that you can go to called "AZcleancomedy". They do comedy that is G-rated and not a lot of blue, in fact, perhaps some edgy stuff, but nothing that would offend most families. You might want to zip over and take a look. It's funny and the DVD is probably a riot.

So, I am posting this clip that he sent me. It's only 2 minutes, but you can see them performing and I am sure, you can buy a DVD at some point. It's good to see Pete working on his comedy again and I am hoping that he has all the success with the gig that he can handle.
