Thar She Blows ...

Big Guy and I took the family to see the Grand Canyon and Old Faithful over the weekend. A fun time was had by just about everyone. The Grand Canyon on Sunday was awe-inspiring, but Big Guy's mood darkened a bit when our tour guide mentioned that it used to be the national debt could barely fill the canyon, and now it probably fits just right. As a result, we shortened our stay there from about the planned seven hours to about four. And I think our guide is now now the head ranger at the "national park" in Leavenworth, Kansas.

While most of us had a good time at the Grand Canyon, my time at Yellowstone on Saturday wasn't quite as enjoyable. I mean, I don't mind being used as a crutch by Big O; after all, we go way back, and I am critical to this administration's operation. But on Saturday I didn't appreciate having my screen used as a makeshift umbrella by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi when Old Faithful blew. I guess it was just instinctive; maybe she feared that if she got wet she'd melt.

  3. We missed you Totus! Glad to see you are back after your "vacation". Apparently, you managed to stay away from the cliff edge while Toes was around. And that was dangerous going to Old Faithful. All that hot air in the same place - bet there was a mini global warming event going on.

    Fancy Nancy had every reason to be afraid. She WOULD have melted. The character of the Wicked Witch of the West in the Wizard of Oz has always been her idol, ever since she first saw the movie while in college. She modeled herself after the WW character. That's why she went into politics, a profession where she could wield immense power over others just like her idol. Unfortunately, she has never been able to find any of those flying monkeys, but she is still looking. For now, the liberal members of the House and the SEIU/Acorn employees will just have to do.

    The current situation does tend to remind me of the Land of Oz, complete with the "man behind the curtain". We touched on this a bit in an earlier blog post.

    the bad guys:
    The Great Oz - Obama (he isn't what he seems)
    WW of West - Pelosi (a natural for the part)
    WW's Flying monkeys - liberals in Congress
    WW's Castle Guards - liberals in Senate
    The Talking Trees - the msm

    The good guys:
    Dorothy - Sarah P.
    Scarecrow - Rush
    Cowardly Lion - Glenn Beck
    Tin Man - all of us MOBsters

    supporting players -
    Munchkins - Obama voters who voted for Hope and Change (Just follow the yellow brick road!)
    residents of Oz - liberals

    Just who is playing the man behind the curtain pulling the strings of the Great Oz puppet Obama? Will we ever know who this is? Is it one man or many?

    Come on FOTUS, you guys are better at this stuff than I am. Set me straight on the cast of characters!

  4. If I were his MIL, I'd be nervous...what a perfect example she would be of healthcare reform. He could have just nudged her off the side of one of the cliffs, and then MoBo and he could make some decisions...Then again, if that happened, MoBo would have to raise her own kids...Yeah, life is full of tough decisions...

  7. Here is some information about the new director of AARP's biography:

    - He says that he was a "man of the sixties" who sees the organization as an extension of the Civil Rights Movement.

    - He also says that he wants to make insurance plans available to all people, not just the elderly.
    - He admittedly says he is a strong Democrat and that he gave a lot of money to President Obama's campaign.

    Now, does anyone wonder why AARP supports the current plan(s) for Health Care/Health Insurance/Health whatever they call it next, Reform?

    AARP members should cancel their memberships and find another advocate group for senior citizens.

  9. TOTUS:
    MAYBE she feared getting wet or she'd melt?! Chrikies, TOTUS - take a look at her. By the looks of her face she's already melted a few times. They didn't need a map to find the grand canyon. Just take a look at Fancy Nancy's face, and there by the grace of God every arroyo from here to D.C is imprinted, then she opens her crinkly mouth and the whole country falls in.

  10. The alternative to AARP was called NASCON, Nat'l Assoc. for Senior Concerns. They have now changed their name to ASA, American Seniors Association. Their website is http://www.americanseniors.org. It's fairly new (only about 40,000 members, so far). They are focusing on these four issues:

    1) Social Security Reform
    2) Medicare Reform
    3) Tax Reform by way of the Fair Tax
    (Congressman Linder's legislation)
    4) "Keeping citizen benefits out of the hands of Illegal Aliens".

    I am not recommending this org nor am I a member. It's a little too early for me to join even though there is no age minimum. I just had heard of it and wanted others to know they have an alternative to AARP. Too many "sheeple" belong to AARP for the benefits but do not agree with their liberal leanings.

    ASA's website says their President will be appearing on CBS tonight, Aug. 17 at 6:00 or shortly thereafter. He'll also be appearing on CNN's Lou Dobbs show during the 7:30 segment, if your teevee is so inclined to stop on one of these channels.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Lisa - Thanks for the tip about ASA. I was looking for an alternative for my mom.

    Writer X, as the President is always saying (at least for the last three or four days), "You are absolutely right" when you say that the president is desperate when he visits Arizona in August! I've visited Phoenix. Great place. I was there in MAY and the temp was already up to 95 in the afternoons. They say its a "dry heat", so it doesn't feel that bad. No, it doesn't. You just feel like you are in an oven being baked, instead of steam cooked, like it feels here in Alabama sometimes.

    I guess he is trying to suck in the Vets now, by acting like he cares about the military and honors our veterans. If he cares so much about the vets, then why are they cutting the VA budget? If he cares so much about the military, why is he constantly trying to cut the few benefits that they get? Which, btw, G.W. Bush restored after Clinton eviserated the military during his term.

    I'm listening to BO's speech to the VFW now. He is talking all about how we can't use military strenght alone, blah, blah, blah....

    Diplomacy, moral authority, financial might, etc.

    Uh-oh, now he is lying.

    "I will not hesitate to use force to protect the American people".

    "THAT'S WHY MY BUDGET INCREASES DEFENSE SPENDING".

    But, what about those Pentagon cuts, Mr. Pres?

  12. Now THIS is a whopper:

    "And if Congress sends me a bill loaded with pork, I will VETO IT!"

    Yeah, right.

    But, remember, it depends on what the definition of "pork" is. According to Obama,
    “One Man's Pork is the Same Man's Vital Local Project”.

    SO, like in the Stimulus bill and the House Cap & Trade bill, there will be a lot of those "Vital Local Projects" slipped into every bill that comes across his desk.

    And Obama will sign it.

    ReplyDelete
  13. No one is mentioning this, but Obama slipped in a dig at the townhall protesters. He said something about "we won't get there by being loud and boisterous."

    OH, and here are the new "buzz words" for the Obama Admin when talking about the Health Care/Insurance/whatever reform:

    "Its all about CHOICE and COMPETITION".

    SO, letmebeclear. Youareabsolutelyright if you think that the Health Care whatever is a load of bull and has nothing to do with CHOICE or COMPETITION.

  14. I just thought of something. A lot of the Dems in Congress and the Senate are getting up there in age (with all the botox, its hard to tell how old they are):

    Nancy Pelosi - 69
    Harry Reid - 69
    Barbara Boxer - 69
    Ted Kennedy - 77
    Barney Frank - 69
    Henry Waxman - 69
    John Dingall - 83
    Robert Byrd - 92
    Arlen Specter - 79
    Steny Hoyer - 70
    John Conyers - 80

    No wonder they are all adamant about not being included in the "public option". They are all over 65, therefore, they are on the list of expendable humans.

  15. Would to God that Kennedy would expend. I have never wished that for anyone ever, but I swear when that man coaks, I am going to throw a party.

  23. Jamie, "youareabsolutelyright." (C:

    H.R. 3200,

    instead of releasing the existing competition among insurance carriers from the chokehold of gov't. ANTI-competition so they can compete nationally,

    introduces a taxpayer-subsidized "choice" that will completely destroy the free market for health insurance.

    WickedWitch: "Come here, my pretties, you can compete in our 'national exchange;' the starting line is over there."

    InsuranceMunchkins: "Okay, but what's that big giant doing in our heat? How are we munchkins supposed to compete with that guy?"

    WickedWitch: "[GRIN] That's your problem."

    Witch'sPetMonkey: "You munchkins are being punished for your 'obscene profits.'"

    Munchkins: "'Obscene?!' 3.3% is 'obscene?!'"

    Witch: "In Oz, it is. Now, scram! Or I'll set you on fire!"

    Munchkins: "Free Market Dorothy! Where are you?"

    [TWW in a cameo (aside): "Better yet, where's the little dog, Toto? We need him to spill that water right-about-now.]

    Jamie, your Oz analogy is an inspiration and FUN. Thanks!

    I'd give Rush the Cowardly Lion, though, he is bigger on courage than he is on brains. And I'd make the Scarecrow (who always had a WONDERFUL brain) Mark Levin who is super-bright.

    Perhaps, we could cast TOTUS as Toto. But... being as that valiant little dog was a Pitcairn Terrier..... Perhaps someone with those initials.... ;) -- now, P.T., Toto was a hero first class in that movie. So, don't go naming me The Wicked Witch .... '_'

    No, I know! Jamie, your little Yorkie would be PERFECT. :)

    Betty Ann, I'd like to see a re-do of "TWofOz" with you as Aunt Em -- and we'd have you go ahead and REALLY let Miss Gulch have it -- no mealy mouthed, (paraph.) "I'd tell you what I think of you, Miss Gulch, but I can't because I'm a Christian woman."

    BettyAnn (as Em): I'll tell you what I think of you, Miss Gulch, BECAUSE I am a Christian woman! I'll quote something Jesus said that just fits, "'You serpen[t], you spawn of [a] vipe[r]!'"*

  27. TWW - I knew you could help out with the cast of characters of the remake of The Wizard of Oz! I don't know why I didn't think of Mark Levin. I'm not terribly good with things that take an inventive imagination. Being a programmer/analyst/researcher for 25 years, I tend to get lost in the facts, the data ... I'm the ma'am in the "Just the facts, ma'am" scenario.

    I just realized that besides forgetting about Toto (how could I!), I forgot about Glynda, the Good Witch! Who shall play Glynda?

    Speaking of Barry-O's smoking. You know how he always claims that he has quit? Well, I was reading about Ronald Kessler's new book on the Secret Service and one of the things it mentions from the book is that:

    === Contrary to Obama's repeated claims that he is quitting smoking, he has continued to smoke regularly, agents say. A week after being sworn in as president, Obama told CNN's Anderson Cooper that he hadn't had a cigarette on the White House grounds. That left open the possibility that he smokes on the Truman Balcony and in the White House residence and West Wing.

    Agents say he smokes outside the White House as well. ===

    Here is more on Obama:
    === Kessler's book reveals that on April 4, 2008, just before Obama's pastor, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, spoke at the National Press Club, Obama secretly met with Wright at the pastor's home. So that they would not be noticed, agents made a point of driving Obama in a minivan instead of the usual Suburban. They parked their other vehicles a block away. Obama spent an hour with Wright and then left.

    During Wright's Press Club speech, he confirmed that he thought America created the AIDS virus to kill off blacks. After that, Obama claimed to have severed ties with him.===

    It sounds like a book that the President and ex-President's (still living) won't like very much. Did you know that:

    - Lyndon Johnson would walk around naked in the presence of his daughters; his wife, Lady Bird; and female secretaries. He was quite well endowed in the testicles, so everyone started calling him bull nuts. He found out about that and was very disturbed.

    - Agents say Richard Nixon was the strangest president they ever protected. He had no relationship with his wife and did not sleep with her. He also would walk on the beach wearing a blue suit and dress shoes. Even in the summer he would insist on having a fire burning in the fireplace.

    - Gerald Ford was, indeed, a klutz. The day after he left office, he was driving an electric golf cart in Palm Springs, Calif., when he accidentally crashed into an electric panel hanging on the wall of a shack for golf carts.

    - Agents considered Jimmy Carter sanctimonious and a phony. The former peanut farmer pretended to be one of the people but actually had little regard for the “little people,” agents say.

    - Ronald Reagan was folksy, and agents loved him. But they feared Nancy Reagan, and many saw her as cold and calculating.

    I can't say that I really wanted to know that about particular fact about Lyndon Johnson.

  30. Rep. Eric Massa (D-N.Y.) spoke to a group of Netroots Nation activists at a gathering in PA. Although he is a Democrat, Mr. Massa won his 2008 race by 2 percentage points in a heavily Republican district. What Mr. Massa told those folks is indicative of the way these Democrats think about their constituents. Here is a small excerpt from the conversation:

    MASSA: I will vote for the single payer bill.

    PARTICIPANT: Even if it meant you were being voted out of office?

    MASSA: I will vote adamantly against the interests of my district if I actually think what I am doing is going to be helpful.

    (inaudible participants' comments regarding the "interests" of the district statement from Mr. Massa)

    Massa: I will vote against their opinion if I actually believe it will help them.

    See, his constituents really don't know what is good for them, but HE does, so, he plans to vote fpr a bill "against the interests of his district".

    Oh, and here is something funny - Cindy Sheehan plans to go to Martha's Vinyard to protest against Obama. I doubt the msm bothers to cover it the way they covered her protests of Pres. Bush.

  33. Oh, now he's gone and done it - Obama has tee'd off the Postal workers! So funny. Here is what the The National Association of Postal Supervisors President told him in a letter:

    === With all of these efforts underway within the Postal Service community, it was a kick to the chest to have you take a shot at a group of federal employees who are working hard every day to support this country.

    Employees of the Postal Service are largely represented by unions and management associations, all of whom strongly supported your candidacy last year. For our support we do not expect any special consideration. However, we would like to be treated fairly and not have our current situation misrepresented, especially by the Commander-in-Chief. ===

  36. Jamie, I think that Barry Manilow should play Glynda because he is a fairy and he could sing that stupid song she sings better than Billie what's-her-name.

    If he's not available, any general in the U.S. army who was promoted beyond his (or her) level of competence (NOT all of them, just those who make great Lieutenants, but lousy generals). They're pretty good about coming up with great ideas for how OTHER people can risk their necks. And they're also pros at LATER, telling you, "Oops. You didn't need to go that long way/do that involved approach; why, by Jove, you could have just turned the little handle and been done with it days ago." When you ask them very politely why you were not informed about "turning the little handle," they (shock) get defensive and bellow that "YOU DIDN'T ASK!" [In our re-do with Betty Ann as a more assertive Aunt Em, we could add a few lines like this for General One-Promotion-Too-Many as a less drunken Glynda]

    Thanks for your encouraging praise, Jamie. Your gift of being able to focus solely on the facts is a wonderful strength. Too bad it's so rarely found amongst politicians -- AND REPORTERS!!

  42. MM:

    The one constant I've read in infection control updates about this year's flu season is that it will be "unpredictable."

    They (CDC, HHS, WHO and other ... ahem, government health agencies) are preparing for it to hit early and hard, but they don't really know. A shortage is NOT expected of the seasonal or H1N1(Swine flu) vaccines, but a delay in the H1N1 vaccine is likely, so the recommendation is to take each as soon as it becomes available (although they can be given safely together).

    The ultimate recommendation is for everyone to have both, although priorities are listed: older, sicker people first in line for the seasonal flu, and younger, healthier people first in line for the swine flu.

    Remember, the seasonal vaccine is developed based on researchers' best guess about what strains will be prominent this year, and many strains of the flu are now becoming resistant to oseltemivir (the anti-flu, make-you-feel-better-faster shot).

    So, whether you take one, both or neither vaccine, your best defense is to wash your hands frequently and vigorously (sing the entire Happy Birthday song while you use lots of soap and friction) and don't touch your eyes, nose mouth or face. In public (even at home if people are sick) use paper towels to dry hands, turn off faucets and open bathroom doors.

    That's way more than you asked, huh? My guess? Winter.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Thanks bnm for that info. When they first came out about swine flu, my office got geared up for it, installing several of those hand sanitizer "stations" and putting up posters, etc.

    I get the flu shot every year. The only year that I missed was the year that there was a shortage of the vaccine. And that was the year that I got a mild case of the flu!

  44. Congress and Federal Employees have great health insurance. What makes their insurance so sweet is NOT that they have a great insurance COMPANY in particular, its that they have a choice between several fee-for-service and HMO plans, who compete with each other to get people to enroll. (USPS workers have it even better than reg Fed employees.)

    I don't know much about regular union members' insurance, but I believe they would benefit because the unionized companies would not be penalized by the 8% tax and thus not inclined to drop what they already have.

    But think about it: Congress, Federal Emps and union members have insurance with some of the same private insurance companies as regular folks do. If these private companies go out of business, who will Congress and the union members get insurance with if all the private companies have gone out of business? Are their enough people in Congress, Federal Agencies and unions combined to make it profitable for private companies to vie for their business? I doubt it. So, who will they get health insurance from? Won't they eventually be forced onto the public plan, too?

    Does that make sense?

The writer pointed out the blatant hypocricy, how they never shut up for eight years about Iraq. Now Afghanistan is Obama's war - remember he said he would do this back in 2006? - 68,000 troops sent there by him. Where are the protestors? Oh yea, busy excoriating Americans who exercise the same right to protest that they enjoy BECAUSE of soldiers, throwing feces and urine and denigrating everything about this country. Where are you libs now?

    My husband made the interesting observation between Obama and Icarus. Remember that he realized he could fly, and got to close to the sun, and he perished as a fool for his own egoism. Look what the democrats have done to this guy. They found a douchbag to do their bidding, they set him on a pedastal and the fool believes all the hype.

    "Let not they foot be always in thy neighbor's house, lest he hate thee." He won't get off the teevee. We used to go weeks without hearing from Bush. Obama hasn't the class George Bush has in his little toe.

  48. One of the arguments that nurses in academia use to promote a national health plan is that 64% of all people currently insured are insured "through the government."

    What they don't tell you is that although this number does include Medicare, Medicaid, SCHIP and SSI, it also includes an equally large (or larger) number of military and government employees (federal, state and local) AND THEIR FAMILIES who are insured through Tricare, BCBS, Aetna and other private insurers.

    While the employee's healthcare is usually subsidized, most add spouses and/or children at some cost to the employee. The sheer number of people insured reduces the risk pool so the private companies can remain competetive serving government employees. Furthermore, imagine how the government will grow even more if a public health system is enacted. We'll be waiting in line to get healthcare from the very people who will retain our private option. (Kinda like we're here to serve Congress now, apparently.)

    I worked for a very large state agency for 12 years as a health facility surveyor, and for every productive employee we had, there were three that were dead weight. When I moved into management, the bureaucracy made it nearly impossible to enforce minimum performance standards. What you hear about government employees is not an exaggeration. There are a lot of good government employees, but then again...

    Usually I have nothing but praise for you, but I must offer you a kindly correction and rebuke. Remember, we've all been told we're to sacrifice. Never mind that sacrifice in the general sense of the word is a voluntary decision (or else it *isn't* sacrifice).

    In this administration we're going to be literally forced to sacrifice. Good thing our Dear Leader knows more than all of us put together.

    Anyway, you were doing your part in protecting Nancy P's doo. She (and her family) get their own plane, too.

    Thats okay though, TOTUS. We're all learning. Except for BO, that is. Never forget that.

    P.S. That was some trick getting your boss to give that post office line not just once, but twice in three days! He must really believe that line. Any chance you can pull it off one more time?

    BNM, thanks for the info. My doc friend from the CDC says H1N1 has mutated while down in the winter in the S. Hemisphere, so some strains no longer responds to Tamiflu and the med. that starts with "A." It only responds now to the med. that starts with "R." (I'm awful at remembering names, but with meds., it's ridiculous; sorry.)

    O Lord, Andrea Mitchell is saying that Misinformation is throwing off support for the White House's medical plans. SHE IS NUTS! SHE and the MSM are who put out misinformation!

    -- I’m sick of TOTUS calling B.O. “Big Guy”

    -- Islam is an inherently and viciously violent (all infidels or non-Muslims should die) religion (See Koran; See also book: Why We Left Islam); its adherents should, therefore, be FORBIDDEN to ENTER a non-Muslim country, much less reside there.

  80. Hi, Jamie. Thanks for the kudos earlier about LIPS. Heh, heh.

    Unlike your gracious approach, this is how I feel about Mr. Hanif:

    If that kid is Muslim, then either:

    A. He is literate and has read the Koran in his language [unlike thousands of Muslims worldwide] and knows and agrees with its evil tenets and I don't care if he is offended; OR

    B. He has not studied the Koran and does not know the tenets of his own religion and I hope that he will now be motivated to seek the truth and, hopefully, successfully get out. Good luck, Hanif. Both those who have never been Muslim and those who leave are up for the death penalty. [See Koran; See also book: Why We Left Islam]

    Hanif, I know your English is quite, but, I hope you can understand enough of what we write here to learn some of the facts about Barry Soetoro, a.k.a. Peach Obama and his National Socialist-like (i.e., Nazi-like) policies.

    If you are a "greenie," if you haven't been permanently brainwashed by the Cult of Environmentalism, read the 2007 book, The Politically Incorrect Guide to Global Warming.

  81. HEY! I have that book, too! Great minds enjoy the same book, eh?

    Well said, TWW. I learn new BAD something about the Koran every day. Those Muslims who ARE peaceful must interpret it much differently than the radicals do.

    I work with a lady from Bangladesh who has been here for a very long time (since her early twenties, she is now in her fifties.) She raised here children here. Yet her husband lives in Bangladesh. She goes back once a year for a visit and her kids (when they were young) spent their summers there. I find all this to be rather odd.

  82. Dear Jamie:
    I used to post, for three years, at "shiachat". My interest began in 2001 in earnest, but I read the koran entire back in the 90's. When 911 happened and then we went to war, the whys of it all sent me back to read the koran, and many other books on Islam by both muslims and non-muslim historians, and while I studied I also began posting at shiachat, to learn from muslims first hand what they were all about, and what they intended for themselves, the world, their world. I would like to note in addition, that I have been a life long student of the bible, the old testament my very favorite book. You may notice I quote from it at times, this is because long texts are rooted in my memory.

    I am, in short, a life long student of religion. I went to 2 years of bible college also.

    So, here I dive into Islam with much enthusiasm, but it took three years to make a final judgement. I did not begin my study to judge, but to understand. This is what I learned in great clarity, on my own and in my own words:

    The reason Islam hates the west, and calls us the Great Satan, is because we have seperated church from state. This is the very soul of the conflict between them and us. Because we have seperated church from state, we have the immoral culture that we have - everythingi s rooted in this great evil we did to ourselves and to God, especially. We kicked him out of governence. This is not true in our minds, because we do believe in God and His word and hold the ten commandments as standard morality. Yet in their eyes we have declared seperation of church and state - in the OT it says we are to stone an adultress. Why doesnt' our court system do it? Because, we removed the government - God - from our courts.

    It also became clear to me that muslims worship Mohammad. They say that they don't he told them not to - but when you r read the koran - he is actually instructing them to worship his words, him, and his role in creating for them a religion!

    A woman, wrote Mohammed, who if there is really an hell burns there as we speak, is worth 4 dogs, but two women are worth one horse. Also, he wrote under Allah's inspration, that almost all women go to hell, only those who absolutely completely obey their father and then husband get to go to heaven. Where they are allowed to feed grapes to a hairy backed muslim slob for all eternity.

    I hate Islam, with every fiber in my body. It is anti-human. Mohammed was a fiend, a plagerizer, and a pedephile. His favorite wife was six.

    Okay, I hope I didn't offend any muslims. NOT.

    ReplyDelete
  83. Amen, Betty Ann.

    One of the most misleading pieces of propaganda used by groups like C.A.I.R. is that "most Islamic people are peaceful, therefore, Islam is a religion of peace."

    That is a lie.

    Only apostate (most unintentionally so) Muslims would say that sincerely.

    Most Muslims have never read the Koran (they either cannot read at all or do not have a copy of it in their own language). Those who claim Islam (which tranlates to "submit," not to "peace") have invented their own "interpretation." The Koran is clear and so are the ijtahads (or whatever those interpretive teachings are called).

    An infidel has only two choices: convert or die. Killing infidels is justified if they are subverting Islam's rules, e.g., by publishing a cartoon of Muhammed with a bomb in his turban.

    Islam is evil.

    I stand by my assertion that no adult Muslim should be allowed to enter a non-Muslim country. The non-negotiable, not-up-for-interpretation, essential, doctrines of Islam justify and even command the murder of innocent people. Followers of Islam are inherently enemies of the United States. Some of the many Muslim immigrants are apostate and, thus, "peaceful." That is no protection from the thousands who are not.



    Christians may try to persuade you that Jesus is the Way to heaven, but they will not kill you if you do not convert. And the Bible nowhere commands this. When God commanded the Israelites to kill pagan tribes or peoples, they were following God's direct order -- limited to those people at that time. Killing those who refuse to convert to Christianity has NEVER been a tenet that had any foundation in Scripture.



    And we have a man in the White House who considers himself to be a Muslim. ["... my Muslim faith." said by B. Hussein Obama to George Stephanopolous on (ABC?) TV, summer, 2008].

    Kadafi just purchased this unfounded mercy for mass murder for a lousy 20 cents a gallon.
    In metric currency that is 30 pieces of silver to those no longer selling me scotch.
    Kadafi as head of the African Union supports an islamic CONTINENT there,and of course,everywhere else too.
    Consequently he supports the same proxy jihadi domino teams one finds demanding chadored swimming in Gaza this very week.
    Devoted supporters of famously secular and generous 'social organizations' like HAMAS,and like minded nursery school bombers infest the west today.
    How PC.
    Persia tuned Pariah (aarrgghh) when she 'got religion'.
    So did Pakistan.

    Is anybody noticing a problem here?
    Other than with the Ps I mean which already keep me up at night.
    Still again,allow me to apologise for 'P'ing all over this post.

    Pardon a TWWainism upon exit.
    Pshaw on those punks who CHEERED for a mass murderer yesterday.
    Any condoning enabling and supporting theocrats and prefering sharia laws over the civil ones cannot be described as CIVILized.
    Some ,as above are clearly BARBARIANS.

  91. totus - what the hell is "wee-wee'd up" mean?

  92. TOTUS:
    Puh-leeze - Soros, inside trading Petrobas, where Obama has redirected tax supported credit dollars? Now, pray tell us TOTUS - how did Mr. George Soros hear about the Holy Obamination's intentions to pass along credit to drill before we, who own those tax dollars, knew? Because according to the story, Petrobas is Mr. Soros's firm's fund's largest holding. And the last time I checked, insider information, given then acted upon, is AGAINST THE LAW. Just ask Martha.

    Clearly TOTUS, your boss is repraying Soros for services rendered. But exactly how much money does the liberal end - sorry, I mean socialist end - of the Democrat party need?

  93. TOTUS?
    You must be tired and overworked. I just read this in a New York Post article:

    "He said the reforms aim to carry out one of God's commandments. "I am my brother's keeper. I am my sister's keeper," Obama said."

    "Am I my brother's keeper?" Is a five word line from Genesis and is asked of God by Cain after he murdered his brother Abel. The answer, of course, is no.

    It is no where a commandment of God's. Nowhere. It is not part of the culture of the old or new testament. It isn't in the bible except as Cain smarting off to God due to guilt.

    But, it would be a part of Rev Wright's biblical view, wherein he also HATES Jews, God's chosen, and this country, the only country in the world founded on God's principles of right to self determination.

    In short, TOTUS, please get more rest. You are making our Dear Leader look like the ass he really is.

  95. I've been rather hoping for an opportunity to post a recurring thought I have, and this appears to be a good opportunity.

    Seems like often when I've heard Obama speak (which I actually avoid), or when I've thought of things he says, the phrase, "Ye shall not surely die" runs through my mind.

    Appropriate, no?

  96. Don't take it so hard TOTUS, Old Drum Face (Fancy Nancy) was just concerned about being wee-wee'd on by Old Faithful.

    Oh aero don't say that. It gave me the creeps. God forbid we lose our country to socialist/ progressive agenda, in your metaphor Eden, and here is the snake trying to make it so!

    And isn't Nancy Pelosi and Reid and Kennedy and Soros and all the far left the same as the serpent, whispering, "...and ye shall be like unto Eutopia".

    We have to keep fighting back.

  98. 'scuse me, i was going to post the doggie video again but i am all wee wee'd up.

    ReplyDelete
  99. Was all this Wee Wee nonsense designed to endear?Perhaps in his family one discusses one's wee wee in public,or what is done with it.I can empathize,needing to drain the anaconda nightly,IT becomes a matter of some concern.Just not to strangers in public.
    Or speaking to a worlwide audience of millions from a Presidential podium.
    Wonder if he choked on my gag about making a wee wager against the Uighers.Wood that it would qualify under the we we wules,as Elmer Fudd might say.Fudditabout that tho.
    What say you Teleprompter?
    We suspect you were witness to this weeness.
    How about the weal story?

  100. and while all the other 'piggies' were doing something useful and helpful,

    'this little piggie went "wee, wee, wee" all the way home.'

    I always thought he was intellectually infantile, now I KNOW it. I have never heard anyone use the term "wee-wee'd up" -- not even 3-5 year-olds (after 5, they're much too mature to use the term wee-wee).

    what an incrdible simp

  101. Mrs. 1953, "I wanted a Shelby Cobra..."

    ..... but you got a V8.

    Bwah, ha, haaa!

    [Sounds like a cool car (even if it is a Ford. ;)]

    Thanks for the compliment!

  102. [aero]"... heard Obama speak ..., "Ye shall not surely die" [quoting Satan from Genesis 3:4 telling the first lie].

    Perfect sense.

    Big Fat Liar who masquerades as a "messiah," quoting the Father of Lies who "maserades as an angel of light" [II. Corinthians 11:14].

  103. Ah, I just had a chance to read last night's posts (when I saw today's new post I came straight here). TWW you are the MAN! Your latest skit was so funny. Hey, I liked it that our GANG (FOTUS) each had a part. I laughed myself silly just now. I laughed till I cried. Heck, I'm still laughing.

    OH, and btw, the WH has explained the wee-wee'd comment. And it is as moronic and juvenile as BO's statement.

    note to Susan: I loved that doggie video. I got it in an email the day before and watched it several times. that is one smart doggie.
