Stand and Deliver

So Big O was looking over his schedule for the next two weeks and saw that he's on the hook for several pretty big speeches. Next week, we'll be beamed live into every public school classroom across America. It's true that this has been done before in places like the Soviet Union, China, North Korea and Venezuela, but this will be a first here in the U.S. and we can't be prouder to be the first administration with the TV programming chops to pull it off.

The program will go like this: after the students sing Big Guy's song, he will talk to them about the importance of health care and how if we don't have universal, government-managed care, all of their parents will die and the kids won't have any candy or allowance. This isn't a scare tactic. It's an age-appropriate and verifiable fact from the Office of Management and Budget. And just to perfectly clear, this won't come off as overly threatening, because Elmo will be sitting on Big Guy's desk signing the speech. It could be worse, we could have Joey B doing the signing.
Then, once again, Big Guy and I will be going up to Capitol Hill on September 9th to make a nationally televised speech before a joint session of Congress. Big Guy was a little confused about this event. He saw the title, "Chronic State of the Health Care Debate" and "joint session" on the briefing document and thought he was going off with his "green" adviser Van Jones for what we in the Oval call a "policy briefing."
Toes said those "policy briefings" weren't going to be happening as often as they have been, since that's where we hatched the whole idea for national health care in the first place.


  1. Mind control over children and "re-educating adults:" they are just so key to "transforming America."

    Ever see the video of the children who were singing the "Yes, we can!" song? Their conductor was practically flopping her head off, bouncing from one side to the other very rapidly while in some sort of joy trance. Ack! The whole event looked like something right out of North Korea.

    TOTUS, some of the FOTS are losing respect for you. How do you "stand and deliver" while BO is telling one lie after another?

  2. Yipes! When I first read the above article, I totally missed its reference to the "Obama song," then ON MY OWN remembered it, and how creepy-commie it was!

    Not sure if this is a "great minds" moment, or just what's so obvious. Probably the latter.

  3. And then all the kids will stand up to say the "I pledge to Obama" pledge! :

  4. The absentee rate at schools will be ASTRONOMICAL that day, you just watch. There are millions of parents outraged over this; I'm one of them.

  5. I've called my school and asked their plan. So far they have not gotten back to me.

  6. I spoke with my local school and learned that the principal is leaving it up to each individual teacher. There will also be other "activities" for the children to do who's parents want them to opt out. Plan on talking with my daughter's teacher tomorrow morning as well as finding out what the other "activities" are.

    Still leaning towards extending our Labor Day Weekend Holiday.

  7. TOTUS:
    Does this mean that by the time our first graders are able to vote, that The Magic Negro intends to still be president? Or does he plan to simply lower the voting age, to say about ten? Which is the compatable emotional age of his 08 voters?

    Maybe both, eh TOTUS? AH?! A-hahaha!! You devil you - tell us. C'mon.

  8. I hope this is optional and the Dept of Ed did not tie funding into whether or not they run this, or something LIKE this in the future. Of course, I'm sure that inner city schools will not only do it without question, but with great fanfare.

    Tuesday, the 8th, will be the first day of school for a lot of school systems. The schools here have been in session for over a week already. As a matter of fact, we have a lot of absenteeism right now because of an outbreak of strep and also swine flu (or just plain flu).

    I saw the comment from a person or two that stated their particular school(s) did not plan to take part in it.

    My daughter's kids go to DOD schools in Italy. She plans to ask the teachers what they plan to do. Because of the time difference, school won't be in session when this airs live, so maybe they won't do it at all. She is going to ask anyway, because if they do plan on doing this, she wants to opt her kids out of the indoctrination, as is her RIGHT.

    If my kids were still in school, they would be staying home that day.

    If ANY Republican president had tried this, the ACLU would have been all over it. The liberals would be protesting it, etc, etc. As it is, comments from liberals on blogs, etc, are very supportive.

  9. This comment has been removed by the author.

  10. bettyanne, not only does TMN plan on running again (and being re-elected) in 2012, there are already plans being made for his successor in 2016! There are already websites advocating for Anthony "Van" Jones to run for President in 2016. (Jones is TMN's avowed communist "Green Jobs Czar". Here is who some folks think would make a good President -

    I believe if TMN had his way, our country would end up like Iran, where 70% of the population is under 30 years of age. That would be perfect, as we know under 30 are some of TMN's most ardent supporters.

    TMN probably is conferring with John Holdren on population control as we speak. Holdren (Science czar) is the guy who co-authored the book about population control via additives to our food and water supplies, forced sterilization, etc.

    TWW can you use your psychic powers and be the "fly on the wall" during that conversation and let us know what they say?

    Health care costs would go WAY down if you got rid of the majority of people over 30. Since under-30's tend to have fewer health issues, his Health Care Plan would work and both cut costs and be "deficit neutral"! (as long as he includes something in his plan similar to what the NHS in the UK is doing -

    Maybe that is what he will talk about in his address to Congress the day after he starts the "Obama Youth" movement on the 8th. He is supposed to clarify to Congress exactly what he wants to have in the Health Care Plan.

  11. 09/19/09 -- a turning point?..............................................................................................................................................................................................................look to the sky...

  12. Jamie, thanks for the vote of confidence in my ability to intuit what Dope might mumble to his Senior Solutions Assistant at an upcoming "joint session" [Bah, ha, haaa!].

    Don't think I'll go as a fly, though..... Peach's little beady eyes would spy me right away and......... [SNAP!] I'd be dead, squished between the bony, nicotine-stained, fingers of that fiend, that MARXIST MUSLIM FROM INDONESIA BORN IN KENYA.

    Most likely the "conversation" would go something like:

    TMN: Here, need a light?

    JH: Yeah, ... thanks [puff, puff]. Aaah. [puts his feet up on the white Secret Serviceman they're using as a foot stool this time] This is the life. Great stuff, man. Where'd you get it?

    TMN: Hooooommme groown (giggle, giggle) -- in Mitchell's little garden. (giggle)

    JH: So, yeah.... [puff]... well, what you want to do is just, well, you know, get rid of all the "bread gobblers."

    TMN: .......................hmmmm…………………..

    JH: Dope?

    TMN: Uuuuuh...... yeah.... wuddayouthinkof 57 fornaverage Merrcan life exshepinsee? (giggle, gigggggggle)

    JH: .... sounds groovy. We can do it with flu shots. I know some German investors who are highly motivated to provide us with "vaccine." [per Mark Steyn, subbing for Rush today-- IF ONLY HE WOULD SUB FOR RUSH 3 (other one to Walter Williams) out of 5 days a week PERMANENTLY -- Europeans are losing big on their investments in the life ins. policies of Americans who just (darn it!) won't die.]

    TMN: Aaaaaaaaaaaaa..........(giggle, giggle, giggle).... I'm "punch drunk" agaaaaaiin. (giggle)....... hhheeeee, heeeeeee. I AM THE PRESHUHDENT...... haw, haaaaaaaw.

    JH: [who had put out his joint after only a puff or two, glances at Dope slyly] Yeah, Barry, sure you are. [GRIN] You just keep on readin' and leave the driving to us.

    TMN: Always have! [gigggggggggggggle] I'm the...... theeeee uuuuuuuuhfirmative ackshun preshdnt. [suddenly serious as paranoia sets in]. And don't you forget it, Holem. I've taped everything. No one double crosses me and lives to write a book about it. Aaaaaaaaand... (giggle, giggle)..... hooooweeeeeee.... Give me a breaaaaaththtthalyzuh...... [slumps over, fast asleep].

    [Secret Serviceman nimbly rolls away as fast as he can, a regular human steam roller -- say, he just might have a second career working with Shovel Ready on one of those nifty highway projects that are not happening yet. :D]

    JH: [tip toes away toward Rahm who is beckoning him urgently from the back door to the Donkey Barn -- whispers to Rahmbo] Thanks, man, I sure don't want to be here when he wakes up. Last time, he thought I was his teleprompter. Every time I turned to go, he'd say, "Stop him! I need to read this!" And the Secret Service kept me there for HOURS.

    Rahm: "Read this?"

    JH: Yeah. I was wearing my "Yes, We Can" T-shirt. Big mistake. Don't ever wear anything with writing on it, Rahm. You'll be sorry.

    Rahm: [curls lip] Oh, I'm not worried, Mr. Holdren. Good night.

    JH: [stumbles and nearly falls down the stairs after a little pat on the back from Muck Monster]

    Rahm: Watch it, JH. People have fallen down those steps and broken their necks. Take care.

  13. First, in regards to the linked video, I will post my response to it on YouTube...
    "I HATE it when people use children, their own or others, to promote political ideals.....doublplusungood..."We are at war with Eurasia, we've always been at war with Eurasia..."

    How long before creeping socialism gives way to full blown communism. I already see the deft hands of zealots removing money from my paycheck to give to others who refused to get an education and who now refuse to work. Is is any wonder that middle class Americans of all colors are simmering in rage. What will it take before the pot boils over?

  14. Oh, TWW, I knew you would come through. Sorry about the "fly on the wall" suggestion. I had forgotten about BO's penchant for fly catching! TOO FUNNY! And perfect to illustrate that BO is just their puppet and they are the puppet masters.

    MM - you have my curiosity up now. What about 9/19/09?

    Are you talking about "International Talk Like a Pirate Day"? ARGH-H-H!

    Or... Rosh Hashanah (Jewish New Year)?

    Rosh Hashanah 2009 - In 2009 Rosh Hashanah begins at sundown on Friday September 18 and ends at nightfall on Sunday September 20.

    What? What?

  15. Ellen K - you mentioned "others who refused to get an education and who now refuse to work".

    The other day when I was posting on a blog, I read an entry by a young woman talking about the health care plight of her parents.

    It seems that all their lives they have been "good liberals" who never smoked, ate organic foods, didn't pollute, protested the war, blah, blah, blah, ad nauseum. They dedicated themselves to working for non-profits and thus made very little money. And since they made so little money, they did not have any spare money to put into savings.

    But now that they are older and having health issues and can't afford to buy insurance, they are wanting Obama's public option to be passed to take care of their health care needs. And the young lady, being a good daughter, wants it passed, too.

    They expect those of us who worked at a decent job for many years, saved money when we could, paid our taxes on time and can thus afford insurance, to foot the bill for insurance for them, too.

    Well, gee, her parents made choices in their lives. Apparently they were very poor choices. Maybe they should pay a visit to their favorite non-profit and see if they can get a handout.

    I, on the other hand, am NOT a non-profit.

    If I blew my money on poor choices and could not afford my mortgage, would they offer to bail me out? Would they house me if I was kicked out of my house? Probably not. Because I'm not a "good liberal".

    I accept the consequences for my poor choices. They should do the same.

    I know, I'm just heartless and mean.

    So be it.

  16. I had already signed off when I remembered something I wanted to tell you FOTS.

    Today at work we had an office-wide meeting. As we were waiting for the bosses to get started (they were late, as usual), someone said to me "have you seen Rolanda's new hairdo?" Since I had not, I looked around the room and did not see her at first, then I focused and saw Rolanda ....

    She had "Michelle Obama HAIR"! Well, her latest hair style, anyway. Complete with the long bangs and everything.(obviously, it was a wig). The woman looked totally different, and it was NOT in a good way.

    Can you believe that? A woman in her late forties emulating a prominent woman's hairdo How silly. I would think that would be something that only teens or twenty-somethings would do.

    Are we going to start seeing a lot of women sporting MO's "do"? I believe that MO wears a wig, or extensions or a weave or something.

    LOL - my verification word for this post?


  17. FINALLY!!!..

    TOTUS returns!!!..

    i thought for a while that TOTUS was going to the dark side...that all the power was going to his hard drive..

  18. "Porker!" Ha, ha, haaaaaaaa.

    Hi, Jamie. Thanks. How in the world did you keep from laughing OUT LOUD at that poor Wookie-Wannabe's hair-do?! Oh, man, I would probably have been fired. I highly admire your self-control.

    Yeah, Mrs., I was wondering about that 9/19/9 thing, too................................................................???

    B. HUSSEIN! Obama (that's how the REVrund Jerry Wright says it) slobbered all over himself at the Ramadamadingdong dinner recently. Hmmm.... I just wonder what he will do for Rosh Hashanah? Will he repent with devout Jews on Yom Kippur? Oh, yes. He will have another private "celebration" of the Jewish holidays (like he did Passover) at which he will ...... do nothing -- OR..... more likely, watch Nazi propaganda films about The Final Solution while eating pork chops, rabbit stew, and bacon, grinning all the while, grease dribbling down his chin.


    GOOD FOR YOU, Chris!! I hope every parent in the United States keeps their children out of school when the Con Man in Chief makes his pitch for socialism, gay adoption, and Environazism. He SHOULD say, "Hey, uuuh... kids... smoke dope. I did.... aaaaaaaaaaaaaaand look where it got me?..... Uuuuuh, any of you have asthma? Well, don't go to the emergency room next time you have an attack..... just use your uuuuuh, breathalyzer er..... dammit.... I mean inhalazer -- ater... . Oh, crap. Just vote Democrat. I am the president." [off camera -- D'OH!!!!]

  19. Tww ,you got that line in before I could post this, you dog........
    (and in so saying,please remember how I feel about greater doggiedom).

    What we need to know Teleprompter ,is how went the Ramadama dingdong diner.
    One presumes the ding dongs were saved for dessert.

    How about all the inside poop,and I do not refer to that left by that puppytraitor ,FIDOTUS.

    Are dogs even allowed in the vicinity of a religous observance like the Iftar dinner?

    Those two congressmen and the high school basketball star convinced me that all this time I had been living in one of the largest muslim countries in the world and didn't even know it.

    Was Kadafi also invited to help celebrate his 40 years as a theocrat ? Any Ahmandinejhads?
    As head of the African Union Kadafi's hopes for an ISLAMIC CONTINENT rankle some,
    as did those rose petals thrown in the path of Lockerbie's killer.
    Perhaps in the interest of us all just 'moving on' from this O can lobby him into a bad HMO.

    Cannot wait to see religions of every stripe welcomed by Obama but think that less likely than a Whitehouse special olympics sponsorship.
    Instead he makes his outreach to islam in hopes of a peace deal now,before hard liners regain power and prevent cuddling w CAIR and MPAC & assorted other HAMAS supporters.
    Resembling Mccain's outreach to Democrats it was noteworthy for degree of technical difficulty considering whose lap he was sitting in at the time.

  20. CHRIS! GOOD IDEA to keep the kids home from school on Sept. 8th. From the description of that day, there is NO DOUBT that it involves pure indoctrination----and not just for the kids, but also for the teachers AND FAMILIES of the kids (did you notice how the O-teachings emphasized assessing the kids' parents and their values? ACK!).

    Bettyann, I also wonder what the other M meant----Mrs.1953----meant by "09/91/09----look to the sky." What!?

    - Is there a comet flying by that day?

    - Or is it supposedly the "Second Coming?"
    (Which I doubt, because even Jesus said that the precise date was known only by God.)

    - Is that the date when Israel will FINALLY strike Iran?

    - How about: is that the date when Obama is having the terrorists strike our country again, so he can fully take it over?

    - God forbid it's the date when China or N. Korea will set off a bomb that knocks out every wire in America, throwing us into a panic about receiving even basic services?

    - Or is it simply the date that Obama has chosen to declare a "crisis" and send airplanes in the sky that carry the signs that say, "All is well! Pay no attention to that monitoring device implanted in your heads!"

    C'mon, Mrs. 1953----let us know what's up with that date!? And what equipment do we need to survive it: food, water, ammo and guns, etc.?

  21. They are singing for change...which is good practice. By the time they become adults, singing for change will be about the only job available.

  22. Imagine the reaction to a group of children singing the same empty praises of, say, Ronald Reagan. And did you notice the almost orgasmic smiles on the faces of the adults as they were inculcating their children?

  23. Time to change his name from Big Guy to Big Brother!

  24. There's rumors rumbling, and I wondered if anyone else had heard about it. It's probably nothing, but then....

    Some talk is floating around about 'lightming from the heights' -- a friend in the Security service area was taliking to my husband about it.

    When my husband questioned him, he only shook his head and said, "We'll know for certain on Sept. 19." (I assume he meant of 2009) This Security fellow works up north.

    I've heard a few other rumors and mutterings, but nothing really concrete.

    So I wondered if anyone else heard anyting.

    you know how rumors can get...assuming, of course, it's something the public will even be aware of.

  25. I did ask ask my husband that since this a Jewish holiday if Iran was going to do something stupid (since Israel's enemies like to strike during Jewish holidays), and he said he didn't know.

    The 'lightning from the heights' reminded me of the German Blitzkrieg (sp?) -- didn't that mean 'lightning war' or somehting?

    Anyway, if no one else has heard anything, then I'm putting the info in a 'Watch' column as a possible rumor and nothing more.

  26. RE: MObitch hair: how exactly would one get that hairstyle? I wouldn't even call it a 'style', more likely an 'attempt'.

  27. Okay, I do hope this is a rumor: I've now heard that the propaganda speech is going to go to grades K-12;, instead of just K-6.

    I wa told this by someone who has pre-school kids, so I don't know how accurate it is.

    anyone know for sure?

    lol, like those High Schoolers will even pay attention...

  28. Aha, found this on ABC News website:

    President Obama will talk to students from Pre K thru 12th grade about personal responsibility and the importance of staying in school, White House aides said.

    As one of the preparatory materials for teachers provided by the Department of Education, students had been asked to, "Write letters to themselves about what they can do to help the president. ....etc.“

    but then, we all know what ABC is.

  29. Does anyone know if the video that is linked in this story is what is going to be shown on the 8th? All articles make it seem like the event on the 8th will be live.

    And supposedly some of the wiriting assignments for the K-6 kids have been reworded so they don't say what will you do to help the presdient...instead they say what will you do to meet your short-term and long-term educational goals. Wow, that comepletely changes the meaning. Should have been that way to begin with since this is supposedly a speech encouraging kids to stay in school to be successfull in life.

    Although, it seems some pretty lofty assignments of K-6 graders to write such deep things. The writing assignments seem more appropriate for the 7-12 graders who can better comprehend how their choices for education can affect their long term success in life.

  30. Chris....

    Wait and see how the media will spin the high rate of absentees on Tuesday.

    It will be that children who didn't show up "acted stupidly and that they are racists"


    WE are officially entering the stage of picking one or the other...

    Are you a RACIST?
    Are you a COMRADE?


  31. This comment has been removed by the author.

  32. My daughter: "Dad, what are 'talking points?'"
    Me: "It's what you would have been given a whole bushel of if we didn't keep you home from school next Tuesday!"

  33. My racist grandson will certainly be home that day. Why, we may go opossum hunting. On Harleys. Waving confederate flags.

    MRS1953 you are a hoot. Thanks for the laughs this morning.

    No fear, FOTae! Greater Hands hold this nation close to a Heart that loves human beings, being the source of all that is noble and good in humanity. Socialism is the enemy of the human being, as it seeks to squelch the very gifts our Maker bestowed - the uniquiness of each and every soul, and the longing for that soul's freedom to express divinely given potential. The days are darkened, but in no way does the light go out.

  34. Has Obama's FCC diversity czar issued a statement yet?

    Imus signs with Fox Business News.

  35. Ramblings from an ADOS (Attention Deficit Ooh Shiny)mind,

    It is too bad Jacko is being laid to rest today. They could roll him out for the Big Guy's classroom coup d'état.
    Maybe it is not too late for Jacko's last show. As my wife pointed out while I lamented about the 9 weeks of laying said Jacko's corpse to rest.
    "He will keep. He is practically all plastic anyway."

    Will Joey B be speaking directly to the special needs children? I can hear it now.

    "Stand up Chuckie!"

    Do you have the energy wise logo? I sure hope so. The appliance "Cash for Clunkers" program is next?

    Criss and Chris,

    Thanks ROFLMAO!

    I love today's thread oh my side my side! You have to laugh otherwise the plaintiff wailing in the office would be too much for my co-workers/co-mrades.


    The entire shovel ready family is taking 9/8 off.

    Does that make us racists too?

  36. This comment has been removed by the author.

  37. I do know that the focus has been changed.

    The coward BObastard doesn't even have the courage of his convictions. The conservatives got wind of if, reported it via talk shows and other media, and WHAMMO!, suddenly the speech is about 'staying in school'.

    yeah, right.

    what a loser this fool is.

    Vacation day for all; let the liar talk to (mostly) empty classrooms, the teachers are the only ones who want to obey him anyway.

  38. Oh, TOTUS, Dear, has anyone even SEEN the puppytraitor since the end of last night's Ramadamadingdong Dinner? I'm just askin' knowing how they feel about dogs, and all...

    word to post: boonalms. Hmmm...

  39. Well, Prep T., great minds... . :)


    Cris of [somewhere in Ohio], you are an inspiration:


    (to tune of "Mr. Bojangles")

    Well, it's 9 'o clock on the corner here,
    the regular crowd's here again.
    Oh, we're all out-of-work little liberal kids,
    smokin' dope, drinkin' whiskey an' gin.

    [skip part of song]

    La dee dah diddy daa-ah.
    La dah diddy dah -- how dumb.

    [skip part of song]

    Oh-ooh, why did we listen to Empty Suit?
    Why weren't we home on the range?
    We're all stuck in the Cult of Obama now,
    On the street corner singin' for change.

    La dee dah diddy daa-ah,
    diddy daaah, did....... duh.

    They should have followed Writer X's advice and just said, "NO!" "NO, WE WON'T!"

    I'd rather stand silently for my principles and be thought a racist than to spew like a lib and be one.

  40. TWW,

    I like those lyrics.

    Thanks for leaving out the part about the dog in your version of "mister jojangles" (Spanish pronunciation). However, I have a list of cabinet members that could "up and die" and I would never grieve (let alone for 20 years).

    I always liked the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band. Having typed that band name reminds me of the current administration.

    I am sure there is a version of Fine Young Cannibals' "Drives me Crazy"/"He's Gone Csar Crazy" out there. But my ADOS requires more self medication (Red Bull) in order to put it together right now.

    You have to stand for something or you will fall for anything.

    I believe we are led not to be lukewarm on any issue or our stance wherein. Much like being double minded it can be the path to ruin.


  41. Great song parody, TWW, but I thought the song was called "The Piano Man." Is it one of those songs with a title that isn't in the lyrics?

  42. Here is a bit of good news:

    Obama Facing Hurdles to Nuclear Disarmament Goals
    Thursday, September 03, 2009
    By Desmond Butler, Associated Press

    == There is little indication Obama will have the votes he needs for a cornerstone of his nonproliferation efforts: Senate ratification of a nuclear test ban treaty. If Obama can't get the treaty approved, he probably will have a hard time persuading the rest of the world to rein in nuclear weapon programs. ==

  43. David Letterman is doing his part to help Obama. He had John Holdren (Obama's Science Czar) on as a guest. Since when did Letterman start having presidential advisors as guests? (I wouldn't know, I don't watch Letterman). Here is a clip:

    How boring can one person be? Its just a short clip. I wonder if he espoused any of his population control wisdom for Dave.

  44. And do you remember the townhall where SEIU thugs beat up a conservative black guy (Ken Gladney)? Well, there is an update to the story....

    One of the thugs, Elston McCowan, sought WORKMAN'S COMP for his injuries. (It was denied.)

    Not only that, SEIU is paying his legal fees to defend himself with "assault associated with the Union".

    Here is video of the attack. Its the entire video, not just the clip that has been shown on tv.

    There are some links on that page that had more details.

  45. Mrs1953----Thanks for giving us the followup information re. 09-19-09.

    On the one hand, yes, the Jewish holiday, Rosh Hashanah, begins at sundown on the 18th, and yes, Israel's enemies like attacking during holidays.

    Recently, various enemies (Syria, etc.) have been making ultimatums about granting peace (HA!) only if Israel gives up the Golan Heights. (Ri-ight.... that would be SUCH a good idea----if Israel wanted to commit suicide.) Anyway, perhaps some enemies are planning an attack on Israel from The Heights of Golan on that date (09-19-09).

    On the other hand, since "Barak" in Hebrew means "flash of lightning," perhaps the security rumor pertains to BO? We'll just have to wait and see----while praying.

    Thanks, too, bettyann, for reminding us that God is in control. BO only THINKS he has power, and he'll lose it SO-O fast if he doesn't push the agenda he was prepped to push.

    Say, have you heard anything about BO's putting our troops at risk almost purposely? I have contacts in the military over in Afgh. and Iraq who are just sick at this, since it seems to be happening.

    (How much longer can BO get away with ALL this socialism (or worse), before somehow he's stopped entirely!!??)

    (On a much lighter note: GO BSU!)

  46. Shovel and Rattle -- thanks. Oh, brother. (eye roll) Yeah, Rattle, that song was "The Piano Man;" Shovel, I not only left out the dog part.... I left out the WHOLE thing (of Mr. Bojangles). How in the world?..... I think it's because I saw my aunt's music for "Mr. Bojangles" sitting on her piano a lot when I was little.


    Oh, well. I guess it still made some kind of sense. %/

    I wasn't even self-medicating!!!!


    Like the "He's gone czar crazy...." idea, Shovel. Hope you'll post that one (when you're in the mood).

    Jamie, you've done it again. Great info.. Thanks. "How boring can one person be?" LOL. :D Duuuuuuuuuuh, .....I wonder ... .

    Those union thugs are such creeps. Go beat someone up and get paid for it. Hmmm, sounds like MSNBC, ABC, et. al. and Sarah Palin.

    I suppose the Black Panthers who were CONVICTED of voter intimidation are STILL on the loose, too. Aaaaaaaarrrgh!

    That's cool about the likely prevention by Congress of the reduction in our nuclear deterrent -- never won a peace through intentional vulnerability.

    Yes, MM, I've been appalled at the policy of Dope to put "more boots on the ground" in Afghanistan while pulling back on the air support to "avoid killing innocent [NOT -- often] civilians." When the head army guy in Afganistan was fired WITHOUT cause a couple of months ago, I thought, "I'll bet he opposed B. Hussein's lack of air support "strategy."

    It's made me wonder if he's deliberately trying to reduce the size of (or at least demoralize) our armed forces by reckless endangerment. He is that evil.

    I've been hoping (counting on) our fine military commanders to ensure our nation's (and our troops') safety. Looks like Dope et. al. are just going to fire anyone who lets out the slightest peep of disagreement with their Con Man in Chief. I wonder about the Navy Commander at Bangor (in Wash. State, Cmdr. Block (?) [could be Bojangles, for all I can count on my brain these days!!!]. He was fired recently for apparently BOGUS reasons. Soon, only the boot lickers will be left. It's amazing how many libs there actually are in the military. Hopefully, they are still far and away in the minority.

    MM -- how's it going with your husband's health? Been praying. Take care.

    Preptile, sure hope all is well with you. You've been kind of quiet lately. :(

  47. I try not to blog while I’m at work, it’s a definite “no-no”, but I have to tell someone about this.

    This morning on my way in to work at 5:30 a.m., I saw something odd. I was driving down the main drag in my little blazer and this white panel truck passes me. It was the type of truck used by UHaul, with the back “door” that rolls up. The truck was all white, no lettering of any kind on the cab or the sides.

    Anyway, the back door was rolled up and I could see people sitting on benches along the sides of the truck bed. At first I assumed it was a bunch of workers (most likely immigrants) for a landscaping company.

    But then a car got behind them and their headlights illuminated the inside and that is when I noticed that all these men were wearing military uniforms (BDUs). A couple of them looked like they were wearing helmets, and one of them had on what looked like knee pads.

    I slowed my truck down so I could stay even with them and get a better look at the people in the back, as I tried to figure out who they were. Then, as we were passing thru an intersection, the truck abruptly turned left at the intersection.

    They may have done it because they had almost missed their turn. Or did they do it because I was so curious? Whatever, the guys in the back nearly fell off of the benches.

    Is that not weird?

    Wouldn’t army/national guard guys be driven around in military trucks? Why an unmarked truck? Obviously, they were trying to hide anything, with the back door open like that.

    You know, it probably WAS immigrants who just happened to be wearing camo clothes that they picked up at the army surplus store.

    Now THIS is freaky - my verification word on this is

    notelit = NO TELL IT ?

    (am I in the twilight zone?)

  48. Jamie:
    Military trucks have military tags, and are unmarked. They also usually travel in convoys, with a radio guy in front and back. Military convoys observe almost paranoid safety precautions. Do you have a base near you? Or a National Gaurd Armory? They could have been NG troops on their way to a weapon's training course. Although, if they were NG I bet that driver has only half an ass left by now.

  49. Just read a report that Joey B. has hijacked you for his speeches. That is scary.

  50. TOTUS: You’re not the only one working on the “Big Read” to kids. I’ve got to do double duty slim-fracting M and giving Big Guy's pecs that
    OBAMA-MAN boost

  51. The picture in DRUDGE today, showing an utterly depressed and shellshocked Obama, masks the shock and depression that WE feel: We have over four more years of this guy yet to go! I cannot EVER trust anything this man says, after a stimulus that didn't stimulate and an unemployment rate that is soaring past where Obama 'promised' it would top out at. There is no coming back from this; the cigarette smoking will increase; the hair will get more gray; the lips more blue. The Dear One is toast.

  52. Progressives to Democrats Jump.

  53. I don't blame you for getting the willies about that truck, Jamie, since we FOTS are on the White House's list of Problem People. It's silly that we're treated like potential "mob" participants, just as the other Americans who oppose BO are treated, when in fact we are all just NORMAL AMERICANS who can't stand socialism, lying, etc.

    My home was actually bugged by the REAL mob once, nearly 30 years ago, when I was working against them in Chicago (lo-ong story). This administration in the White House sure (mis)behaves like them sometimes....

    The largest problem with BO and his crew is that THEY keep reading THEIR lifestyle and "character" into OTHER people. That is, since BO et al. are sneaky and lie, they assume everyone else is sneaky and lies. Sad....

    Hubbie's still waiting for test results, and getting more tests soon, TWW. Thanks for your prayers. What did you think of:

    Say, besides the fact that you are crazy for dogs, you don't share about your life, TWW. You okay?

    Sometimes you seem pretty youthful and hilarious, then at other times, you are very intellectual and informed.
    Say, are you and Preptile related!?

  54. MM,

    Having grown up a Vandal, I was still happy to see your Broncs beat the ducks. As a kid, when visiting Boise most of my time was spent kicking hackey sack at Ann Morrison, skiing at Bogus and clubbing at Humpin' Hannah's. Does Carole King still live outside Boise?

    I have your husband on my prayer list too. I wonder if bloggers are considered gathered in HIS midst when we all are in agreement in prayer. I am sure we are.

    Like you, I think the thug/mob mentality is prevalent in our Nation's Capitol. They are literally thieves in the night. At least they get paid while they jackboot "astroturf" protesters HuH? Who is your astroturf now? Not to point any fingers. Heaven forbid, I might pull back a bloody stump.

    I think the revolution that BO and the Joneses were hoping for backfired like a 6-wheel drive Twin Falls potato truck. We just need to keep our eye on the ball. The lamestream, state controlled media won't even touch a story about Van, Jeff or even Geraldine Jones. But, given enough outcry they will relent just as they have with health care, Obominating our youth and anything else with enough resistance.

  55. Hi FOTS. I think I've figured out who the BDU wearing guys were in that truck that I saw this morning. It was announced in the news that a local man was arrested for a bank robbery. The bank was robbed on the 27th by a man who escaped ON FOOT. I guess they knew he was a local. Anyway, they must have been the swat team heading back to the police station.

    I just read a GREAT article by Krauthammer:

    Obama, the Mortal

    By Charles Krauthammer
    Friday, September 4, 2009

    === After a disastrous summer -- mistaking his mandate, believing his press, centralizing power, governing left, disdaining citizens for (of all things) organizing -- Obama is in trouble.

    Let's be clear: This is a fall, not a collapse. He's not been repudiated or even defeated. He will likely regroup and pass some version of health insurance reform that will restore some of his clout and popularity.

    But what has occurred -- irreversibly -- is this: He's become ordinary. The spell is broken. The charismatic conjurer of 2008 has shed his magic. ===

    link -

    When the townhall protests first started, Krauthammer was dismissive of the townhallers on "Fox News Special Report". About a week or so later, Krauthammer had to admit that he was WRONG about the townhallers. He is one of the few beltway pundits that has openly admitted it.

  56. Fox News is airing a great one hour special about the miss-information that can be found in our kids' textbooks.

    It is going to be hard for the msm to continue to ignore the Jeff Jones issue. More videos of his offensive statements have surfaced.

    Here are some of the latest:

    I heard tonight that if Jones doesn't remove himself from his position, or if the WH doesn't act to remove him by Tuesday, when Congress returns, then the msm will most likely HAVE to address it. Because the Republicans will bring it up and make it public record.

  57. Van Jones is a communist America-hater; he is a race-baiting racist. BObastard has outdone himself with this one.

    Send them all to Africa, so they'll be content and feel more at home, since they seem to hate it so much here, in the USA, where they have risen so high, and can fall so far down...

  58. This comment has been removed by the author.

  59. What is so very apalling is that they are so BRAZEN about putting these nuts into positions of power! They actually believe that Obama can do anything he wants, without question!

    Video after video of Jones saying these things are out there, and they think all he has to do is deny saying it (Obama's favorite stance) or act as if it was just youthful indescretion (yeah, from March of this year, SO long ago wasn't it?).

    Science czar John Holdren's radical population control book is out there, but "he has changed" - "that was then, this is now".

    And the media just fluffs over it, as if there is nothing unusual about the President of the U.S. surrounding himself with radicals, admitted Communists, tax cheats, shoplifters, etc.

    I just read Peggy Noonan's latest column. Her description of the people surrounding Obama is typical of the head-in-the-sand beltway pundit, out-of-touch with the country, mentality.

    She started it off by saying that Van Jones engaged in a "flirtation with radicalism" and that she hoped that "it did not become a full, deep and continuing relationship". And she then just dismisses the flap about him as irrelevant.

    She goes on to talk about Obama's aides as being just "young and untried":

    === Mr. Obama's young aides are hardworking, humorous and bright as pennies, but I wish they had an arthritic ache or two, I wish they told old war stories because they'd been in old wars, I wish they knew what it looks like when an administration goes too far and strains the ties between itself and the bulk of the people. ===

    Who the heck is she talking about?

    The czars aren't "young and untried". I suppose one or two of them could be considered young, but the majority of them are old radicals from the sixties; Obama's old cronies from the corrupt Chicago political machine; or old Clinton retreads.

    And if any are "untried" its because, up until now, no one has been foolish enough to put them into positions of power where they could put their radical and/or crooked "ideas" into play.

    Unfortunately, millions of voters WERE foolish enough to vote for Obama, another "young and untried, bright as a penny" radical.

    Peggy is head over heels enamoured of Obama. She can't bring herself to say anything against his policies, she just can't. The worst she can say about him is that he is "cold", but then she makes it sound as if he is cold in an intellectual way.

    === Long-term it is hard to get people to trust your policies if they think you're coolly operating on some intellectual or ideological abstractions. ===

    No, Peggy, that isn't what we think. That is what YOU think. WE think that he is cold because he has no heart, no soul.

    Obama is narcissitic to the core. THAT is why he thought that no one would have a problem with the curriculum sent out by his admin. Because its ALL ABOUT HIM and the masses who LOVE HIM.

    "Have the children read books about Obama".

    "Have the children read his speeches and write down quotes that they like".

    "Have the children write essays on how Obama inspires them".

    THAT is not propaganda?

    Makes me want to barf.

  60. TWW,it is true posts are sluggish on this end.Since no one noticed my gag about ding dongs for dessert at that Ramadama ding dong dinner,I have been sulking.
    Also had hell getting online all week.
    Someone sent me a virus in a video that produced persistent popups.
    One knows how aargghh inducing that can be. (See clean version at you tube,it is titled "Pasta in Riyadh").One imagines similar amusements might have occured at that Iftar dinner/diner mentioned above.

    I have another prediction.
    (Still batting.000 for those scoring at home).

    Van Jones will soon be thrown under the bus.
    Obama will be shocked and stunned to find out what a looney this lovely is just as when discovering that Reverend Wright was all wrong.
    Hopefully his remaining 5 year politburo plan, aka,'the stimulus',will join him under
    the rear wheels w all the other less favored family & friends.
    It's a pity a passal of patrician politicians cannot join him there,and both political parties too.
    One would find that particularlly pleasing.

  61. Seems that on Sept. 20 the national flag of China will be flown at the White HOuse; Isn't that treason of some kind???

    or did BObastard sell the White House to the Chi-Coms, too?

    I guess the hammer and sickle flag will be waving over DC next (right under the Crescent Moon and Star).

    what a travesty, and the ultimate insult to those who fought and died for our country.

    BObastard is getting more disgusting every day.

  62. Mountain Mama, thank you for YOUR concern. I'm okay. Someone dear to me is going through a tough time (and will be for awhile). Guess that has me more depressed than usual.

    Yeah, you guessed it. Sometimes, I am "youthful and hilarious" and, at other times, I sober up and say something useful. Thank you for your kind (and encouraging) words.

    You ALSO know that I am more paranoid (and I have some real, if small time, "enemies" whose spyware -- the type that sends them a copy of every e mail I send -- may very well be in my computer; I need to address this with some good software, but just haven't) that my posts on the giant billboard that is the internet will cause me personal difficulty. I'll try to be a little more forthcoming.

    Bwah, ha, haaaaaaaa! Did you see that, Prrrreeeeptile? Heh, heh, MM figured out that you and I are related!

    Yeah, MM, my TWin brother, Preptile [whose real name is George, just like Merve Griffin's was -- remember the Weird Al Jankovick song? :D)] just stopped by on his way home from playing tennis and told me it was okay to tell you. He was, nevertheless, PERTURBED (with a capital "P" and that rhymes with "T" which stands for...... TRUTHWILLWIN!) that someone actually realized that we're related. As you know, he's a golf pro while I know NOTHING about golf. He is more careful to post something worthwhile, while I just "let 'er fly." He keeps his BMW washed and waxed, I...... well, I just don't see washin' the mud off my 4x4 Suburban to be much of an improvement. He saved his allowance; I squandered mine on bubblegum cigarettes and DING DONGS.

    [Say, Prep, that WAS a funny gag -- I was going to say something at the time about the Ding Dongs being the ones who ATE the dessert... but I was just too tired that night and never came back to it.]

    He was voted "Most Likely to Succeed"... I was voted "Class Clown." He was VERY relieved that I did not go to the same college he did, heh, heh, remember that P.T.? Ha, haaa. Didn't stop me from showing up at the frat house on the weekends though, did it?

    I guess this sums it up: we both like dogs; we're both conservative -- aaaaaand that's about it. ;)

    Seriously, I am honored to have been thought to be related to one with such a fine mind as P.T..

    Well, that was a barfingly ALL-ABOUT-ME post.

    Enough already!

  63. [Shovel Ready]"... bloggers are considered gathered in HIS midst when we all are in agreement in prayer. I am sure we are."

    You betcha! "'... if two of you on earth agree about anything you ask for, it will be done for you by my Father in heaven. For where two or three come together in my name, there am I with them.'" Matthew 18:19, 20.

    There are several bloggers on the TOTUS blog who are believers (in Jeshua as Messiah). Cool! WE WILL MEET IN HEAVEN AND KNOW EACH OTHER someday. :D

    [Shovel] "Not to point any fingers. Heaven forbid, I might pull back a bloody stump." LOL. THAT WAS FUNNY. We'd all better be careful and wear our welding gloves or we'll all be Mr. and Mrs. Bloody Stump. Eeeww! If that attack didn't epitomize the rabid (sure hope the elderly victim DOESN'T get rabies!) "progressive" movement.

    Loved that whole "backfired like a 6-wheel drive Twin Falls potato truck" [KER-POW!] post, Shovel. Trucks like that rumbled along the roads of my home county, too. Runnin' just a leeetle bit too rich.


    Jamie, what a fine critique of mealy-mouthed Peggy's article. While I admire her, I've been disappointed in many of her articles for the Wall Street Jrnl. over the past few years, too. STOP BEING LUKEWARM. As God says in Revelation 3:16, it makes you want to spit!

    Reminded me of a quote I just read today: "[One] who is not angry when [one] has cause to be, sins." (John Chrysostom, Homily 10?) [Quoted in Steering Through Chaos by Os Guinness, p. 116]

    Heh, heh, Jamie, I loved your Illegal Mexicans on Their Way to Work theory -- wearing camouflage so Border Patrol will neeeever see them amongst the shrubbery they were hired to trim. (:D)

    Hopey the Clown wears a suit for just that purpose -- "No one will eeever realize that I'm an imposter." As Rush Limbaugh reported last week, reporter David Brooks (?) proves my point; the fact that Barry's trouser legs were pressed to a fair-thee-well convinced Brooks that ol' 57-state D'oh! was THE candidate for POTUS. That suit may be empty, but it is well-pressed.

    Nice to hear from you, P.T..

    And all of you -- good to hear from you!

    AND THOSE OF YOU LURKING, both old-timers like Shaun and newer-timers like Bossy Nurse Mom -- SPEAK UP! You will never make sillier mistakes than I already have. :)

  64. [Jamie] " was just youthful indiscretion (yeah, from March of this year, ... ."

    Thaaaaaaat's Barry! The Perpetual Youthful Indiscretion.

    From the "I Haven't Been Stoned in Over 2 Weeks" File:

    Please, dear God, end that fiend's wicked career -- now.

    I HOPE HE FAILS to ruin the United States of America.

  65. TWW, I'll pray for your dear friend. Long-term problems require Persistent Prayer!
    Speaking of P's---
    Plaudits for peachin' 'bout your Peerless Partner in Parental Pestering, the Prepster. How perfectly praiseworthy, too, that you pass on pugnacity!

    Preptile, pout not, punkin: you're our prized Plato of parody, perception, and perpetually piercing perspective. Please pledge to pursue positive pleasures: pets, plays, and picnics----perhaps poetry?----and we'll do penance for just partly perceiving your points.

    (Ack! I'm all outa "P's" here...!)

    Oops! There's another one!

    Jamie, you've outdone yourself with your recent, long post; it's SO on target. Nowadays, the MSM is totally "outed" as biased beyond belief, causing the far-more-balanced Fox News to win the ratings war.

    Frankly, few reporters and pundits (including C. Krauthammer, whom I treasure) perform in-depth research anymore: the news hole fills too quickly and they don't have (or take) the time.
    (CK has been seeking a FT researcher of late, so I give him a break.)
    Nevertheless, you'd THINK they'd do more reading, simply as American citizens! It's our JOB to make sure we have SOME IDEA for whom we're voting!!!!

    Glenn Beck is just terrific lately. If only he could devote as much energy to researching and revealing lies in other international efforts, in which he.... uh.... is involved himself. Ah, people avoid truth to gain support every day.

    A colleague who works with the military writes:
    << Our troops have no supply routes open and not nearly enough helicopters. They are not getting mail for 6 weeks at a time and I doubt they're getting much else either. This is no accident. Every idiot in the world knows what happened to Napolean: Waterloo, supply lines, etc. And still this POSeur throws them all to his friends the ---- >>

    I get literally sick just thinking about this. Our collective sons, daughters, and parents serve over there!

    (And my bet is that BO will defiantly KEEP Jones in place. Jerk.)

  66. OH! And shovelready---I thought Carole King moved out of Idaho entirely. She might still be shuttling between here and NY City, though.

    Yeah, Boise is the BEST. Our weather and scenery are just perfect. And WOW, what a cliffhanger last night with the Broncos and Ducks! If one more turnover happened, I'd have DIED. Once it appeared that our player just LET GO of the ball, very gentle-like. ACK!
    (The horrid thing is: my LEAST fave-rave colors are orange and royal blue. BLICK!)

    Time to hit the sack. God bless you, FOTS and TOTUS---although YOU are disappointing us lately: make more errors for BO, please!

  67. Quoth MM- "Preptile, pout not, punkin: you're our prized Plato of parody, perception, and perpetually piercing perspective. Please pledge to pursue positive pleasures: pets, plays, and picnics----perhaps poetry?----and we'll do penance for just partly perceiving your points."

    Amen, I say to you, amen.

    PS- Resident Truther - loved the list! It helps to summarize while perpetually grinning!

    And thank you TOTUS for keeping THE PICTURE alive. Will they use it Tuesday for the Address to the 'Chilren' in school?

  68. MM, I loved your P's post. It is a real tongue-twister:

    == Preptile, pout not, punkin: you're our prized Plato of parody, perception, and perpetually piercing perspective. Please pledge to pursue positive pleasures: pets, plays, and picnics----perhaps poetry?----and we'll do penance for just partly perceiving your points. ==

    (Did you forget about Preptile's PEAS.)

    Now, FOTS, try saying that three times, as fast as you can without making a mistake!

    So funny!

    I can't say even ONE sentence from that without getting tongue-tied. LOL

    I know I'm showing my age, but when I was in "grade school" (what it was called way back when), we had lessons where we had to repeat a couple different tongue-twisters without making mistakes.

    One of them was:
    "Sue sells sea shells by the seashore".

    and another:
    "How much wood would a woodchuck chuck
    if a woodchuck could chuck wood?
    He would chuck, he would, as much wood as he could, and chuck as much wood as a woodchuck would chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood."

    I think the exercises were supposed to teach us how to speak more clearly. Now children are taught much more useful things ... like 'ebonics'.

    Of course, my time in school was back in the day when children were also taught to respect their elders; had instruction in things like 'penmanship'; and we learned about American History and Civics/Government. There was no "Social Studies".....

    Well, your tongue-twister had me looking at the internet and I found out about "spoonerisms":

    == Some tongue-twisters are specifically designed to cause the inadvertent pronunciation of a swearword if the speaker stumbles verbally (see spoonerism).

    An example of this sort:

    I'm not the pheasant plucker, I'm the pheasant plucker's mate,
    And I'm only plucking pheasants 'cause the pheasant plucker's late.
    I'm not the pheasant plucker, I'm the pheasant plucker's son,
    And I'm only plucking pheasants till the pheasant pluckers come. ==

    That one gave me a hard time. I'm afraid that I said the 'f' word.

    More than once.

  69. As for the Van Jones thing. This is a holiday weekend. Lots of folks are on the road, taking that last chance mini-vacation.

    Aren't unpleasant things usually announced during holiday weekends when people's attention is elsewhere? Especially this weekend, when the news is all about BO's attempt to launch his plans to indoctrinate our children (in addition to the usual indoctrination via the crap in their schoolbooks, that is).

    SO, wouldn't this be when they would quietly announce throwing Jones under the bus?

  70. Little known fact (or fact not covered by msm):

    Republicans Have Offered Three Alternative Health Care Reform Bills

    The Democrats need to stop lying to the American citizens.

    >|< >|< >|< >|< >|< >|< >|<

    Here is a great piece by Mark Steyn (or I should say, ANOTHER great piece):

    BTW - I know that Obama has promised to put his speech to the children on the White House website for parents to review. This is supposed to happen on Monday.

    The White House website is a govt web site. So, I caution anyone who plans to go there on Monday - remember, the Obama admin lifted the ban on allowing govt websites to put tracking cookies on the computers of people who visit govt web sites.

    And here, is an editorial that ALL Americans should read -

    The Perspective Of A Russian Immigrant
    By SVETLANA KUNIN | Posted Friday, September 04, 2009 4:20 PM PT

    In the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, I was taught to believe individual pursuits are selfish and sacrificing for the collective good is noble.

  71. Yeah, several pundits also wondered, Jamie, if BO would toss Jones this weekend. I think BO will keep him! After all, they totally agree---but BO lies about it.

    Plus, I read somewhere (was it here, from you, Jamie?) that BO actually wants Jones to SUCCEED him as President! CAN you IMAGINE!?

    I swear: if Americans are STUPID enough to vote in Sicko Jones, then America as < I > know it will be GONE, and I'll be making tracks elsewhere.

    That said, I don't think Americans are stupid NOW; they might become less with-it, though, if they keep getting "free" stuff from Obama.

    Isn't it creepy how BO makes himself the center of everything? What a narcissist! "How can you help President Obama?" the upcoming curriculum states. Best idea yet: PRAY FOR HIM, that he'll have an Encounter of the Deepest Kind with GOD----Who can just be amazingly BLUNT, when necessary: "Thou shalt have NO other gods before ME." End of "Messiah-BO"-ness!

    Anyway, I loved your list, too, TWW. SURELY Americans are waking up to what a liar BO is.

    And thanks for your tongue-twisters, Jamie, but I can't say them! (I just posted all the P's to honor Preptile.)

    Bettyann, I'm scared for our troops. Tell me your relatives are okay, that they aren't being shafted by our JERK CIC! How terrifying, to think that he'd put them purposely in danger. Hey, wouldn't that be grounds for impeachment?!

    Mutiny: it's what's patriotic, with this perfidious CIC....

    Mrs1953, it's a waste of tax dollars to try sending BO or other blacks "back" to Africa, and they aren't really at home there: they were born and raised here. Let's just clap BO and others in irons here, if they commit treason----and vote the lyin,' cheatin' elected officials OUT of office in 2010!

    (That's one-half of the list of Requirements for Country Music Songs: "Lyin,' cryin,' cheatin,' dyin' songs." hee hee)

  72. List of Obama's czars:

    Afghanistan czar,
    AIDS czar,
    border czar,
    car czar,
    climate czar,
    copyright czar,
    cyberspace czar,
    drug czar,
    economic czar,
    education czar,
    energy czar,
    executive pay czar,
    faith-based czar,
    Great Lakes czar,
    green jobs czar,
    Guantanamo closure czar,
    health reform czar,
    infotech czar,
    intelligence czar,
    Iran czar,
    Middle East peace czar,
    non-proliferation czar,
    Persian Gulf/Southeast Asia czar,
    regulatory czar,
    science czar,
    stimulus accountability czar,
    Sudan czar,
    TARP czar,
    terrorism czar,
    urban czar,
    war czar
    WMD and terrorism czar

    This is just thirty-four of them. There are now 37. I'm not sure of the titles of those three which were recently added.

    At least one Obama pal is functioning in a similar capacity without the awesome Russian title of czar. Former Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle is providing "outside advice" to the president inside the Oval Office and to top White House officials while continuing as a highly paid policy adviser to hospital and pharmaceutical clients of a law and lobbying firm.

    How convenient - he represents hospitals and Big Pharma!

    here is some news about Obama's Regulation czar:

    === Cass Sunstein, President Barack Obama’s nominee to head the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA), has advocated a policy under which the government would “presume” someone has consented to having his or her organs removed for transplantation into someone else when they die unless that person has explicitly indicated that his or her organs should not be taken. ===

    I guess if its against someone's religious beliefs, that's just too, too bad.

    Besides, isn't it the liberals who say a woman has the right to decide about abortion, since its "her body"? What is different here?

    The fact that you are dead when they harvest your organs.

    >|< >|< >|< >|< >|< >|< >|< >|<

    Something else that is not making the news:

    === Rep. Jack Kingston, R-Ga., has introduced the Czar Accountability and Reform Act to cut off the salaries of these czars (estimated at $172,000 plus their staffs of 10-plus people). It's unlikely the Democratic Congress will let this bill see the light of day. ===

  73. MM - great post. You have a great way with words.

    I'm worried about the troops, too. I have heard and read things that seem to indicate that they are tying the hands of the troops and making it harder for them to do what they need to do. You can't micro-manage a war!

  74. BObatard does not want to win any war against his Muslim brothers; remember, he said his had a 'problem' with the word 'vicotry'?

    If not victory, then what? A Tie, Defeat -- aohter Viet Nam?

    a neverending war???

    BObastard, I fear, wants our military dimished to the point that his civilian corps can take over; what better way to get rid of regular military than put them in a war, then make sure they lose?


    I thought he wanted Van Jones for next prez, too, but was afraid to post it. Horrible thaing is, I'm terrifed he would be elected.

  75. AS for sending them back to Africa - its been tried before. I am reading about the attempt to "repatriate" free-born blacks and ex-slaves in Liberia back during the times before the Civil War ....

    === In 1816, a group made up mostly of Quakers and slaveholders in Washington, D.C., formed the American Colonization Society (ACS). The Quakers opposed slavery, and the slaveholders opposed the freedom of Blacks, but they agreed on one thing: that Black Americans should be repatriated to Africa. The Quakers felt that freeborn Blacks and former slaves would face better chances for freedom in Africa than in the United States. They also saw repatriation as a way of spreading Christianity through Africa. ===

    This is REALLY very interesting. I had heard before that the American blacks treated their "brothers" in Africa the same way that they had been treated back in this country.

    === The settlers recreated American society, building churches and homes that resembled Southern plantations. And they continued to speak English. They also entered into a complex relationship with the indigenous people -- marrying them in some cases, discriminating against them in others, but all the time attempting to "civilize" them and impose Western values on the traditional communities." ===

    BUT... here is the most interesting part of what I've read so far.

    === Despite these developments, the gap between the ruling elite and the indigenous populations increased. Tubman was criticized for being too influenced by the United States and its interests in the area (i.e., the fight against communism), and for repressing political opposition. Tubman's rule became gradually more authoritarian : He changed the constitution to allow himself to remain in office for seven consecutive terms, gagged the press, and introduced a system of government spies to report on all political activity. ===

    BOY, does that sound familiar! Is that what we are headed for?

    source -

    After reading this and seeing what the people of Liberia experienced, I doubt that Africa wants them back.

  76. TWW-love your 'joint session'

    bettyann- kudos to you -grandson home, possum huntin', riding Harleys with your confederate flags. This yankee LOVES the mental picture!

    Jamie-you are brilliant! Light years ahead of me with your research...thanks for your links. I am learning so much. How do you make them 'tiny'?

    It is a frightening time and I thank all of you who post! You help keep the humor and courage up...

    Oh yeah, thanks to TOTUS too!

  77. To make tiny urls you just

    copy the url
    go to -
    plug it in
    "tiny it"

    Someone once showed me how to make the url into an actual link that you would just have to click on ... but I forgot how to do it and I can't find where I wrote it down.

    There is a way to add "tiny" to your toolbar, but I haven't gone so far as to do that. Haven't quite figured out what to do. It tells you how, but it won't work for me.

    (I programmed huge mainframe computers for over twenty years, but I have yet to figure out what to do with these little bitty pcs!)

  78. In looking around on the net for information about Liberia, I came across this 'Liberia Forum'.

    You should read some of the entries in the thread "LIBERIA is for American-Blacks !!!".

    It contains posts from Liberians and also posts from American blacks who want to move to Liberia so they "can live there in peace without the race discrimination that is so prevalent here in the United States."

    (As on any internet forum, I can only assume that these people are what they say they are.)

    Here is a sample posting -

    post from patrick savice, who claims to be a Liberian:

    === king, what a misnomer,the dork, i am a bonafide (black)liberian and pure blood at that. you insult all when you make such outrageous statements. do you know the history of liberia?do you know about the discrimination and prejudice carried out by americo-liberians or conger-people? when you make such unfounded statements, you not only insult the rest of the population, but re-ignite the main conflict that exists in liberia, thereby inflaming the sentiments of the majority of the liberian populace. i hereby repeat,grow up, are a dangerous fool!!shut up!! ===

    And the response from 'king', a North-American black:

    === If it wasn't for Americo-Liberians you wouldn't have a Liberia today, you should be grateful to us Black-Americans, it was on our blood and sweat that you got a recognized country. you owe us !! we don't owe you ! I wouldn't be surprised if it was your Ancestors who captured and sold my ancestors to the Whitey. so hush-up and humble yourself !!! ===

    here is the link:

    Remember when I said I didn't think Africa wanted them back? Well, they DON'T. Here it is in the words of a Liberian named Joseph (who is going to school here in the States) - according to him, they don't want American blacks to move to their country:

    === Liberia belongs to Liberians and not porn-minded or lazy minded African- Americans. We Africans come to America to learn and contribute to our continent. We are all aware about how you think about us here in America and how you African- Americans think you are better than us. People like King should not be allowed in Liberia because they will bring about conflicts, drugs and all their dirty habits to our country. Come to Liberia and experience the fire that we can warm ourselves with. We are working hard and striving for higher education in America why you lazy African-Americans sleep, do drugs, drink, listen to music and drop out of high school. We Africans are all contributing to our continent and we don't need African-Americans. We will one day turn the so called village to a heaven for us and our children. King, I am sorry for you because racist America is all that you have. Don't even think about coming to Liberia because we don't want to see you. Warning:King stay out of Liberia today, tomorrow and forever! We Liberians love Liberia!!! ===

  79. TOTUS you should be speaking to the kids on Tuesday, not potus. Leave him home.

  80. If the teachers truly wanted to inspire children, they would point out that Obama's speeches were written by someone else. Obama is "just the man who delivers the speech" (an actor). The true talent is with the speechwriter.

    And that if they stay in school and study hard, they might someday be a speechwriter for a president.

    They could compare the speeches of other presidents and the writer for each.

    OR, after showing the video of Obama, show a video of BO speaking on his own, without a speech in front of him to read, and thus demonstrate how a well-written speech can transform an ordinary person into something completely different.

    They could also highlight the advances of technology. Start out with the speeches by Presidents delivered on the radio, before television. Then the speeches through the years as technology improved, ending with Obama speaking with TOTUS.

    Again, show the contrast between Obama giving a speech using TOTUS, and holding a press conference without TOTUS.

    Let's be honest. What BO says in those speeches aren't HIS words. They are words written for him by someone who writes speeches for a living.

  81. So much to write about, so little time. Glenn Beck has been at the forefront of exposing the czars, and I'm so glad others in the media are finally talking about Van Jones. But there are other radical czars that need to be called out, like John Holdren and Cass Sunstein, as Jamie mentioned. BTW, Jamie, thanks to the link to the Russian immigrant's article.

    "Again, show the contrast between Obama giving a speech using TOTUS, and holding a press conference without TOTUS."

    That is a fantastic idea!

    Today I attended an ENORMOUS rally/townhall meeting, organized by the Cincinnati and Dayton Tea Parties and the Cincinnati 9/12 Project. The Sheriff estimated a crowd of 18,000. Them's three 0's, folks. You heard it here first.

    The article just says "thousands." I hope the meeting will get national coverage because of its sheer size, but I probably shouldn't hold my breath. Nothing really exciting (read: violent) happened, and it is the weekend.

    The main focus of the meeting was healthcare, but other issues brought up included TARP, 2nd Ammendment rights, the Bill to end funding for the czars, illegal immigration, and the war in Afghanistan. One person even asked a gubenatorial candidate if he would consider Ohio seceding from the US. My jaw dropped at that one. (The candidate said we don't need to secede, we can claim our state's right to govern ourselves under the 10th Amendment). I'll have to go back and watch my videos and see exactly what they said. I plan on posting them on youtube, which I've never done before, so wish me luck!

    Word verification: unpay. As in, we should unpay the czars?

  82. My two favorite signs from the rally were "Trade your czars for cash" and "With ears like those, why aren't you listening?" (with a charicature of BO in the middle).

  83. MM, thank you for your concern and for your prayers.


    Debbie D., thank you, glad you enjoyed that. I had fun writing it. :)


    Jamie, Hi! Thank you for yet another trove of valuable information. LOVED (as usual) the Mark Steyn article. Sure was wonderful having him sub for Rush last week. I'm glad you directed me to's site; I clicked on "Cartoons" and spent nearly an hour chuckling and nodding at Michael Ramirez's super-witty creations. That guy is a genius.

    One way to insert a hyperlink to an internet site in a TOTUS blog post might be [I’m trying this here as a test] to open up a new Word document and “Insert” [from tool bar on top of screen] a hyperlink like this one: http// - comments

    then, copy and paste the text in your Word document into the TOTUS comment box. Voilá! (I hope).

    The other way I can't remember, but you do something like,
    - add an "=" after "hyper"
    - replace the first "/" with a "["
    - add a "]" at the end.

    /*\!/*\ /*\!/*\/*\!/*\/*\!/*\/*\!/*\/*\!/*\/*\!/*\(I liked your snowflake border above, Jamie -- pretty and inspiring... then I saw it as a "D'oh!" kind of facial expression and liked it even more.)
    /*\!/*\ /*\!/*\/*\!/*\/*\!/*\/*\!/*\/*\!/*\/*\!/*\

    Thanks for the fervent Liberia posts. Boy, they really get hot under the collar over that issue, huh? Fun reading.

    **How is little sweetie pie Yorkie?**

    WARNING: Illegal aliens in camouflage at 5 'o clock! ;)


    Hey, Rattler, thanks for the hot-off-the-presses "Extra! Extra! Read all about it!" report. 18,000?!?!!! THAT WAS IMPRESSIVE. What a thrill it must have been to be a part of that event.

    "Czars for cash" --
    "With those ears..." @(>.<)@ -- LOL. Those WERE great signs.

    I admire your attempting to post a video -- I wouldn't know the first thing about how to do that. Good luck! [and a prayer -- just asked God to help with that project].

  84. Well, that [the hyper link idea] didn't work.


    Oh, well. It's not a big deal just to copy and past it into a new Explorer window. I kind of like the long version better than the tiny because I can see where I'm going.

  85. Re: TOTUS' twitter (ugh!) about "transparency":

    LOL. They get 0.

    "Nuthin'," muttered Yukon Cornelius, hoisting his pick axe back onto his shoulder once again.

  86. I agree, Mrs.1953: BO seems to be diminishing our military's power, so he can take over by using his civilian goon "army." ACK!

    Yes, various African tribes sold each other into slavery, Jamie----just as Native American tribes were vicious toward each other (except the Navajos were nonviolent). Libs are SO silly to idealize them, since, given a measure of power, ALL people of any race or gender can become corrupt. Even bleeding heart liberals!

    Grr-EAT ideas, Jamie, about how TRULY to teach children about "The Front," BO.

    HEY, FOTS PARENTS, try sweetly to persuade YOUR kids' teachers to teach their students about our government in the BEST way, showing them videos, speeches, and other written material that proves how:
    -- it's speechwriters who have the real brains and gifted word-smith ability, not (usually) the presidents,
    -- the research, deep thinking, and creation of actual policy are usually done by behind-the-scenes ADVISORS, who move from administration to administration, aren't elected, and thus aren't accountable to the population (oh, terrific!----NOT!), and
    -- most presidents are selected, primed, and promoted by party bosses----in BO's case, by the CORRUPT Chicago/Daley machine (read Mike Royko's timeless columns about it).

    Anyway, COOL idea just to revert immediately to State's Rights. I wonder if BO would use the National or Civilian Guard to take over the state governments?

    I forgot to thank you for your prayers, too, shovelready----as well as thank again all the other FOTS (TWW, Jamie, etc.) who are praying for my husband. Ever foremost in our thoughts is that our family would be set aside under Obama"care." I've never done this before, but it IS biblical----

    "Maranatha" means literally, "Come, Lord!"----but it doesn't mean, "Come, Lord Jesus, be our guest," la la la...
    Instead, "maranatha" is an ancient formula for calling upon one's god to (1) witness and (2) strengthen a curse. BOTH times it's used in the Bible (I Corinthians 16:22, and Revelations 22: 18-22), it's connected FOR THOSE TWO REASONS with curses. SO here goes:

    If government officials do not keep their vows to serve their constituents and uphold the US Constitution, let them be accursed.

    If our president does not lead our nation honorably and protect it as our Commander in Chief, let him be accursed.

    And if Americans don't wake up, read more, and do their DUTY by working hard to vote out of office all corrupt government officials who want to ruin our nation for their own selfish benefit, let them be accursed.

    MARANATHA! May the Lord witness and strengthen these curses!

    Please note:
    I pray that every American, including (presently) corrupt politicians, will devote their hearts to serving God and humanity, so the above curses are unnecessary.

  87. The REAL Story of a Boy Named Barry

    [sanitized version]

    A brazen, August sun beat down on the roof of Barack Obama's hut in British Kenya. It was 57?.... 65?..... whatever, it was hot. Stanley (Livingston was long gone) knelt on the floor, angrily shoving all her (Yup. Stanley was female.) belongings into her suitcase. Slamming the lid shut, she stood up and turned toward Barack who was scowling in the doorway, holding a newborn baby. "Why didn't you tell me you already had a Mrs. Obama?" Stanley snapped.

    "Uuuuuuuuuuh, well..... I, uh, didn't think it mattered. I just uuuuuuh……thought to myself, 'Barack,' I said, 'Barack, one wife is good, so, two must be better.'"

    "It matters. Give me that." Stanley snatched the tiny infant from Obama's arms. “Well, as soon as I get to Hawaii, you will have one. Move!" Tucking the baby under her left arm, the suitcase in her right hand, Stanley elbowed her way past a shocked Barack and didn't stop until she reached the local car lot.

    After paying $12.00 for a Land Rover, she stowed her possessions in the back, jumped in, and ground her way through the gears until she was bumping along the dirt road to the airport. The baby began to bellow. "Shut-up!" she yelled.

    Reaching the airport, Stanley pulled over to the side of the road, jumped out, grabbed the baby, and stood beside the Rover holding up a sign she'd made earlier that read, "Clunker for cash. Runs."

    Before long, a fussy looking little British man wearing a white safari suit and a tiny, white, moustache and carrying a tranquilizer gun walked up and said, "How much?"

    "Fifty dollars." said Stanley, her chin jutting into the air defiantly.

    "Fif-- Fiffffty... dollars?" sputtered Perkins. "I'll wager that pile isn't worth ten."

    "It may not be worth ten, but I paid $40.00 for it and I won't take a penny less." [Lying is a congenital disorder.]

    "Twelve dollars."
    "Twenty and not a penny more."

    Hurrying across the road toward the airport, Stanley paused long enough to toss something into the trash. "There! We'll get you a new birth certificate in America, Barack. I have big plans for you, elephant ears. And a Kenyan birth certificate would never do."

    After a long flight, the plane finally touched down in Vancouver, B.C. and two hours later, Stanley was in Seattle, knocking on the door of her old schoolmate Susan Blake. "Stanley? Stanley Dunham?!"

    "Yeah, Susan it's me, Stanley OBAMA."


    "Can I come in or are you just going to stand there gawking?" Stanley brushed by Susan into the entry, set down her suitcase, and tossed Barack, Jr. onto the settee.

    "Is this your baby?" Susan picked up the wailing child, cuddling him in a motherly way that he was not accustomed to.


    "Oooo, such a cyuuuute little oookums pookums," Susan cooed. "Uh, oh, he's wet -- REALLY wet. Here, let's take him upstairs and you can change him in the master bath."

    Susan raised her eyebrows as Stanley stomped upstairs packing Junior under her arm like a bundle of kindling. Catching up to Stanley at the bathroom door, Susan watched as Stanley, having tossed the used diaper onto the floor, nearly covered the newborn with a dry one, wrapping him like a package of hamburger. "Here," said Susan gently, "let me help." And she proceeded to show Stanley how to properly fold and put on a diaper.

    "So that's how you do it. Huh."


  88. ***Due to "technical difficulties," folks, I will now make a long story tiny, er, short.

    Stanley made it to Hawaii and went down to the county courthouse, lied to the clerk, and got herself, er, got her baby, a certificate of live birth. "Where was the baby born?"

    "K-uuuh, er, here. Hawaii, yeah, that's the ticket."

    "That will be $5.00 please."

    Tired of "mothering" after a month, 18-year-old Stanley left Junior with her parents and went to college in Seattle. For awhile.

    Bored with school, she got married again. This time, to an Indonesian. Taking her prize possession with her, the three of them made their home in Indonesia where Junior became an Indonesian by adoption, taking the name of his new dad and becoming Barry Soetoro.

    In Indonesia, Barry learned to catch flies with his bare hands. He became a Muslim [as he reminded George Stephanopoulos last summer, "my Muslim faith"].

    Tired of rice and beans, Stanley packed up again and moved back in with Barry's white grandmother in Hawaii. There, Barry learned how to roll a joint and made some new friends like that gay man who did so much for him. Barry liked high school so much that he stayed in for an extra few months, graduating a little late (oops). He WAS going to join "the army" (no one knows which one), but didn't.

    Instead, Barry HUSSEIN Soetoro took a little field trip to Pakistan to find himself. At that time (c. 1981), Americans could not enter Pakistan. Hmmm.

    Well, Barry made some more friends. His special Saudi friend got him into Columbia University. Other friends wrote his papers and got him into the "Pass/Fail" program (and then destroyed his records so he "passed"). In his essay, "Books I Read During My Summer Vacation" (they gave him some pretty challenging assignments), he wrote about the only book he ever read in his life cover to cover, Saul Alinsky's Rules for Radicals. "I liked Saul's book because it is cool. The End."

    With lots of cigarettes and affirmation, Barry made it into the Harvard School of Law. Disgusted by the mural of the Good Shepherd in his apartment, he collected enough speeding tickets to remedy the situation. Popular (who wouldn't be with all the free cocaine he handed out thanks to his sponsors, er, "friends"), Barry was elected to be the mascot of Law Review, "the President," not to be confused with the Editor, a real job. He wrote no articles. He reviewed no papers. He just showed up..... once in awhile.... and grinned.

    He ended up in Chicago where he was advancing rapidly as a community organizer. Made more friends including terrorist Bill Ayers. Elbowed his way into the Illinois state Senate. He joined a "church" where the pastor hollered stuff that Barry liked to hear, stuff about how white people (with blue eyes) were evil and that Jews were evil and how America wasn't special and that Muslims were cool.

    He met a big woman who made more money and who hated America even more than he did and they teamed up. He made more friends. Some of them, such as Syrian Tony Rezko, David Axelrod, Rahm and Zeke Emmanuel, and Bill Ayers, realized they had a "useful idiot" in their midst. "That is one slick con man, there. He has a gift. Why, he could take a child's soda pop away and the child would beg him to take his candy bar, too. Let's ‘help’ him."

  89. So, they helped and they helped and they got ol' Barry elected to the highest office in the land. Realizing that he was WAY over his head, Barry got nervous, so, Rahm & Co. gave him 37 helpers to do his job for him. Dope (as he came to be called behind his back) was relieved, "Whew," he said, wiping the sweat from his brow, "this is like old times. I'll be able to be president, now."

    But, one day, not too many months after “The Magic Negro” [coined by L.A. Times editorialist] conned the simpleminded and white-guilt sufferers into voting for him, God finally said, "Enough." The quiet sound of a single sheet of paper slipping into the tray of the printer at the U. S. Supreme Court that read "certiori granted" started an avalanche that would eventually bury Peach Obama in the mountain of lies that had been told on his behalf.

    Headline: OBAMA IMPEACHED!

    And church bells rang throughout the land as the good people of the United States of America gathered to give thanks to the One who had set them free. The Christmas services were full, the worshippers faces beaming with joy, not only for the birth of the Messiah, but that "the messiah" was gone! He had failed to carry out his wicked schemes to destroy the U.S.A..

    "God rest ye, merry gentlemen,
    let nothing you dismay.
    Remember Christ, Our Savior, was born on
    Christmas Day to save us all from Satan's
    power when we were gone astray.
    O tidings of comfort and joy,
    comfort and joy!
    O tidings of comfort and joy!"

  90. If the above posts do not motivate "Totus" to post a new topic, I don't know what will.

  91. BRAVO, TWW, BRAVO!!!! That was great!

    After seeing your post, it might be difficult for TOTUS to post a new topic. How can he possibly top that?

    But, if he does, it most likely will be about the very first thing they said on "Fox 'n Friends" when they came on this morning. It was a "Breaking News Alert" -

    Van Jones submitted a letter of resignation on Saturday.

    "On the eve of historic fights for health care and clean energy, opponents of reform have mounted a VICIOUS SMEAR CAMPAIGN against me. They are using LIES and DISTORTIONS to distract and divide."

    It could have been one of Dope's previous announcements. You would think that they would come up with some different wording. You know, use a Thesaurus and change it up a bit.

    I guess they won't change the wording because, with so many people who have to resign, they must have a form letter all ready to fill in the name of the person who is resigning.

    Well, since the msm has not covered ANY of the controvery about Jones, they were already set up to whitewash it:

    The AP is already "reporting" that the whole controversy was just that Jones had "made a derogatory statement about Republicans and his "name 'appeared' on a petition connected to the events surrounding the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks". And that he apologized and denied, blah, blah, blah ....

    Of course, there was NO mention of his statements about "white men poisoning minorities", "Columbine attacks only committed by white children", etc.

    They also made it sound as if the only reason Glenn Beck exposed Jones was because " led an advertising boycott against Beck's show to protest his claim that Obama is a racist".

    Talk about SPIN.

    Wonder how long it will be before they bring out the "its because he is a black man" charge?


    TWW - @(>.<)@ - Good one! Looks just like him. I imagine that he is frowning mightily right about now.


    Hey Rattlesnake, you said "I probably shouldn't hold my breath".

    Have you turned blue yet?


    TOTUS helped me out when I could not figure out who the three new czars are by providing one of them on Twitter:

    Rev. Wright - Stimulus for Crackheads Czar

  92. TWW, thanks for your prayer. Good story. I especially liked the part with Barry's mom at the beginning, probably because it was the most detailed. I am also a so-called "birther" who would love to see BO impeached. But there is a big problem with impeachment. Say by some miracle the Democrat-run Congress brings charges against their President and manage to remove him from office. We would never hear the end of it from the Obamatons: how he "never got a chance." That's why our best bet is to vote conservatives and constitutionalists into Congress in 2010 to limit BO's power, and push for state's rights to block some of the unconstitutional policies.

  93. Pleased as punch w the P poppin praise?

    You Betcha !

    Peadidly,eased even.

    Still not all puffed up tho.

    Peadidly, is not the same as PDiddy,or Puff Daddy aka Sean Puffy Combs.
    I just cannot imagine wishing to smell like him,P-eww one imagines.
    Even his 007 commercials have not persuaded me to purchase his perfume.
    No doubt he prefers his 40 shaken not stirred.
    Have heard his other 40 is a fine caliber .Perhaps even,preferred.
    He must truly be a man of discriminating tastes as his 'music' probably proves.
    Never having been particularly a rap fan,I prefer music w a melody.
    Beats me why I find beat alone reductionist.

    Thanks MM and all others.
    I grinned my way around all 18 yesterday.

    Even moreso w this morning's Drudge report detailing how a certain Van got crushed
    under the wheels of our short bus.
    That raised my prediction batting average to .333 for those still scoring at home.
    Stunning stamina there guys.
    We are not talking T ball either.

    Again to the woodshed w the readership tho,who missed that you tube video titled 'Pasta in Riyadh'.It was peripheral to my post intended as is my (unseen) avatar to further flesh out the funny.Go see why.
    Speaking of avatars Teleprompter ,Gravatar if enabled, would allow perfectly precious pups (like my own avatar) to show their great regret (as mine does) for peeing the carpet(as my avatar has just done),Yet again.
    One just cannot imagine how that happens.

    Adding gravatar,and bringing back the widget would comfort this poor soul.
    I yearn for the readership figures for France & other fur flung federalisms ,even Yalta.
    Who reads in Eithiopia ,Iran ,Estonia and even among our beloved soldiers in Iraq or Oman?
    Whither those E I E I O figures TP ?
    Are you too stuck to the socket providing all that power,to share some of yours ?

  94. Preptile called it! Van Jones is outta here! Encouraging news. Keep up the pace... maybe we can 'out' a csar a week? Although BO will probably create 2 new positions for each failure...

    MM great article on the flamingo site! I can relate.

  95. Thanks, debbdi. Probably MOST people can "relate" to my article, because every family includes someone with an ongoing health condition (arthritis, etc.) or is elderly or dying. We all want to keep making our own health care decisions, not have the government withdraw options (ie. ration care).

    I agree: wouldn't it be cool if Congress could end the Czars' salaries, or pull some other tactic to end their power!?

    Well, Prepster, you da Man! I am truly shocked, shocked that Jones was tossed. (SU-URE he "resigned:" NOT!) Jones' being tossed under BO's bus means two very important things are true:

    1. Obama has learned there are limits in life, even to His Holiness' power and influence! Alleluia: BO himself might "learn from mistakes," as he patronizingly said to the CIA.

    2. Jones' failure to hold onto his position also shows American voters that WE STILL HAVE POWER OVER THE WHITE HOUSE! We need to keep up the pressure on BO by promoting and attending Tea Parties, by reading about public officials BEFORE voting them into office (ya THINK!?), and seeking candidates who are authentic, exemplary citizens publicly and privately. No more hazy histories, please!

    Hey, bettyann, are you taking a break, celebrating your book's publication? Good idea, but I still crave more first-hand info. (if you can get it, with the lousy mail service) re. whether or not your relatives in the military are also getting the feeling that BO is purposely sabotaging their success. I am WORRIED for them!---but I try to keep praying about them, which is more positive.

    TWW----great play, except BO's mom seemed more loving and yet calculating, and probably had lots more help, possibly from Frank Williams Davis----more than just sneaking little BO into Hawaii, if ya read me (BO as mole-from-birth, not Messiah).

    I hope, rattlesnake, there's an economy left to save, if/when we vote conservatives into office in 2010! (But you're right: impeachment would only garner sympathy for the Dems.)

    Finally, you're right, Jamie! The MSM is already mentioning how this BLACK activist, Jones, was "forced to resign."

    For 2012, Palin (or whoever is the Republicans' presidential candidate) must select a VP of color, simply because people of color literally have HAD it with being kept outside the walls of power. We just need to make sure, obviously, that we elect DECENT people----and I hope for conservatives of course----not shady jerks with socialist (or worse) agendas who ignore or circumvent the US Constitution.

    Well, I can't go to church (rats) because of a very sore throat and I'm covered with hives, either from the new med. or the new recliner we just bought (probably the latter). I'll be praying for y'all at length then: God bless you!

  96. Hey TOTUS - if you get a chance, kick Van Jones on the way out the door for me..

  97. New info about the release of the Lockerbie bomber (Al Magrahi)- UK officials say that the reaction of Obama and Sec. Clinton to his release was 'disingenuous':

    === We would never do anything about Lockerbie without discussing it with the US. It is disingenuous of them to act as though Megrahi’s return was out of the blue.

    'They knew about our prisoner transfer agreement with Libya and they knew that the Scots were considering Megrahi’s case.’===

    Read more on UK's Daily Mail:

    But I think we all knew that, didn't we?

  98. There is another story that has not been mentioned by the msm.

    =CIA Asks Justice Dept. to Probe Secrets Leaks=

    === One element of the new leak investigation involves a New York Times story last month that said the secret program employed the security contractor Xe - formerly known as Blackwater. The plan was never put into effect - and Mr. Panetta canceled it as soon as he learned of it, according to the CIA.

    But the disclosure has had other consequences: Al Qaeda has placed Xe's chief executive, Eric Prince, on its own version of a most-wanted list, said Mark Corallo, a spokesman for the contractor.===

    The news of the request came out on Friday morning, but I've heard nothing else about it since. (link -

    I'll bet that Justice declines to investigate, since they are more intent on prosecuting Bush officials instead. And here is another reason they will decline:

    === Because the program was briefed to Congress, it opens the prospect that the FBI could place lawmakers and congressional staffers under polygraph. ===

    THEN, Friday night comes this story:
    = CIA Chief Panetta's Job Appears Secure =

    === According to one senior intelligence official, several senior Obama administration officials told Panetta at the White House this week that the spy agency's work was vital and appreciated.

    According to the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to reveal internal White House discussions, administration officials felt the assurance was necessary to offer in the wake of Holder's controversial Aug. 24 decision to investigate whether CIA interrogators broke laws against torture during the Bush administration. ===

    link -

    Oh the games these politicos play - with our national security.

  99. Victor Davis Hanson has great insight into future problems for BO:

    September 4, 2009
    Whining Will Get You Nowhere
    by Victor Davis Hanson

    === Apparently, Obama grasped (and he hints at this in his memoirs) that his rhetorical powers, and singular heritage, allowed him to achieve things not commensurate with the facts of the matter, or prerequisite knowledge and prior experience. But on a global stage, it is not so easy to wing it with just "forget the details and what I said in the past — now just trust me, since I'm young, charismatic, and different."

    Proof of all this is not just the waning polls and the grassroots anger of hoi polloi, but a strange and sudden end to last fall's elite-left puff pieces that used to run the gamut from women dreaming of seducing Barack, desire to change the law to allow him to begin governing almost immediately in November, worry over a Bush coup to abort the dreamy Obama presidency, and all sorts of personal testaments about how suddenly the world will be a utopia. That entire genre of liberal therapeutic Obama musings in print and on the screen has quite incredibly simply vanished.===

    Hanson writes something new nearly every day, you can read all of his papers here-

  100. MM, I'm afraid that I don't know where to look for your article on the "flamingo site". If you posted a link earlier, I missed it. Could you point me in the right direction, please? I would really like to read it.

  101. And Rush being on vacation, he had nothing to do with the firestorm around one czar, Van Jones! Ha! Take that!

    Now it's time for Valerie Jarrett who bragged about how great it was that Van Jones joined the O'Bama Team and said "we've been watching him for a long time...well, not THAT long, he's not that old....blah blah blah".

    Hey Hey, High Ho!
    Valerie Jarrett's got to go!

  102. Did you guys know that on January 6, 2009, there was a bill submitted in the House of Rep by José Serrano (NY District) as follows:

    == H. J. Res. 5: Proposing an amendment to the Constitution of the United States to repeal the twenty-second article of amendment, thereby removing the limitation on the number of terms an individual may serve as President. ==

    This bill is currently being considered by the following House Judiciary committees.

    One of many bills we have not heard about, but need to watch out for!

    I also saw a bill to do away with the Electoral College and change to Popular Vote. This one is also in committee.

  103. Jamie- is that one of those first session bills that seem to always come back like a bad penny ...Think of the Town Halls if that got any further! Ha!

    ...thinking about the role of a Senior Advisor to the President (Valerie Jarrett)...If a senior advisor is to advise and protect the boss' reputation and make good political judgements for him....well, Yikes! Van Jones' selection reeks of bad judgement. Failure at that level deserves the resignation letter to be proffered. Pronto.

  104. Susan, There were literally hundreds of bills submitted during that first session. Many of them sit in committee, some with and some without co-sponsors. This may be how they slip things in when we are least expecting it.
    Are these to be "stealth bills"?

    I think that Jarrett actually believes that these people, their ideas and associations, are ACCEPTABLE and "mainstream" and thus would be acceptable to the public at large. She obviously also believed that they were acceptable to her boss, BO. (I believe that as well.) Remember, BO himself told us to judge him by the people he surrounds himself with.

    If someone looked closely at the czars, they would probably find that many more of them have links to radical groups, radical ideas.

    Glenn Beck has only televised these kinds of links for a few of the czars. I'm hoping that he has found such links on more of them and just has not aired the information because he has not verified the information to be true (he has to verify anything and everything that he airs).

    IF, after exhaustive research, he finds links from those radical groups directly back to Jarrett (and others in the administration), it should also be revealed. In this age of technology, you would think that these people would realize that their public statements would come to light. In all actuality, they probably know this and are so brazen to believe that they will get away with it. VDH wrote about it -

    === Michelle Obama articulated that view with her trope about not previously being proud of America until her husband became a serious candidate, but apparently for the next few years we are supposed to endure lectures from a variety of leftists like Jones that their own success allows us to find (temporary) redemption from them. ===

  105. Hey TOTUS,

    Are you coming to my city with BG today? I'm not going down to the river to watch. It might rain, so be sure to keep yourself covered.

    Preptile, I watched the pasta video. Wow. XD

  106. Jamie,

    As always, your extensive research is helping to educate me. You are right. In this information age in which nothing can be permanently deleted, the elite's words are exposed and hopefully truth will win out. These Bohemians feel they are above all. The haughty nature they exude will bring them to ruin.


    I hope your story of Barry comes to fruition. However, as the snake pointed out, it will be awhile before the Demoncrats would ever eliminate one of their own. After all, they know what is best for America. What a charade. The irony of it all is the fact that by putting czars in place, BO is attempting to do away with the checks and balances in spite of the "mandate" (hopefully said mandate will by null and void after 2010) the phlegms have in Congress. It is almost laughable when you think of how the progressive movement (BM) has tried to legislate through the legal system and now controls congress and the executive branch but still exhibits the ultimate example of the Peter Principle. And these Bozos want to run our health care? They couldn't run a 7-11.


    I loved that P-popping alliteration. Which would never be confused with p-diddy's (rhymes with sh***y) illiterations. Rock on Idaho!

    Finally, when the wheels fall off of this fraud with the broad (michelle) maybe we can get czars for clunkers in place. I would much rather have some of those old rides around than the comrades in the midst.

    Mu login word...listin. Something that Washington should heed.

  107. I kept hearing that Van Jones's resignation came with an apology. While I heard excuses and denials in the news, I have yet to hear the "apology" part. Anyone actually hear one??

  108. Greetings FOTae! And....whew!! It took two hours to catch up.

    MM: Thanks for asking - had the first book signing Friday and sold out of books. Now I'm waiting for the mob to arrive for my tar-and-feathering :)

    A note about the sacred American Indian: Navajos were and often still are violent - most nwise to go on BLM land near the rez unarmed. Almost all western tribes practiced some form of cannibalism. Hamburger Helper is a favorite food stuff, with dog, though both are suspect.

    Mark Steyn's article (thanks Jamie)was excellent, his concluding statement poignant:

    "The president is not our ruler but our representative, a citizen-executive drawn from the people."

    It is strange, is it not, that liberals literally believe the reverse; instance the obsession with GW's presidency, hating him as a ruler. Andyet now here they have the Obamination and want him to rule! Especially us.

    I had an unfortunate confrontation with a liberal this weekend. Actually, it was a bullying session, where they spewed the "genius" education that googling provides - all the facts (dirt) and conspiracy (insanity) and patriotism (treason) about what this country is "REALLY" doing. In between I was asked a view - then promptly shouted down with more of same. He called it a "debate", yet it was not even a discussion, but literally a rant, a bitter sermon on this evil country and how GW ruined it. I am still shaken, and furious, by the treatment I recieved from a "friend". It was not his views that upset me - he said nothing new, only the same boring bullshit liberals have spouted for a decade - but the complete loss of decorum bitter hatred for GW inspires liberals to treat fellow Americans with, making of us enemies and shouting at us as such for having an other view of matters. It's frightening, actually: you cannot get a word in, and they escalate the tirade through frantic dramatic vocal patterns. But it was I who finally said, "Shut up. Right now. Before I break this broom over your fat head."

  109. Ah, you are here, TOTUS! I saw a picture of you.

    How could you stand to scroll the lie that opponents of BO's healthcare plan (whatever it is) want to "do nothing"? Bullcrap. There are a few plans proposed by Republicans in congress. You should direct Dope to this URL:

    BTW, the unemployment rate here in OH-land is 11.2%. BO has a lot of supporters here, but even they aren't dumb enough to believe Joebiden about the Stimulus working.

    Bettyann, congratulations on your book!

  110. bettyanne - you GO girl! Maybe the loss of decorum is actually caused by FEAR - your "friend" realizes that what he thought he was going to get from Obama isn't what he is getting. (One can hope.)

    I started reading your book last weekend. (I actually got a case of the giggles, visualizing Delbert's bear imitation.) But I didn't get very far because I was interrupted so many times by people coming and going (son, sister, etc), that I finally put it down and decided that I wouldn't start back until I get the chance to read it totally uninterrupted! Which has not happened YET. I am so frustrated these days.

    All that is going on these days has me agitated more often than not. I want to be encouraged by the tea party and townhall protests, but (being the pessimist that I am), I'm worried that as soon as we get past this HC issue, people will go back to ignoring what's going on. After all, it IS football season.

    Besides all that, we have things going on at my office that keep me upset on a daily basis. Since we had new mgmt come in two years ago, they have been changing - ever changing - just about everything! And it has not been good change. It is "change for the sake of change", if you know what I mean. According to them, we have never done anything right. They are turning our office upside down, people are demoralized, and are leaving left and right.

    We went from being the best, most productive office in the country to the least productive, most error prone office. There no longer is any accountability, no more rewards for a "job well done" or anything like that. Anyone and everyone who touches a project is rewarded. People who make mistakes are forgiven for "not being trained properly" (even when they have been doing the same job for many years and should know better.)

    But what I am struck by, is the sense that it almost seems to parallel what is going on in the country.

    Oh, did I mention that the new upper mgmt are BIG TIME Obama fans? Oh, yeah.

  111. Jamie, your office situation sounds similar to what happened with my office. We were bought out by another company last year, and a lot of people were laid off. Then things calmed down until we relocated six months later. That's when things really started changing for the worse. We stopped getting reviews for our work, most likely because the managers didn't want to give us raises. We stopped having monthly birthday parties and donuts on Fridays. The whole work environment became colder and more hostile. My supervisor started telling me to redo certain files, because apparently the way I have been doing them for the past 9 months was wrong the whole time.

    Finally, about a month ago, Indians started coming to the office once or twice a week. I wasn't sure whether or not they were new hires, because they were never introduced to anyone. Then, this past Friday, my supervisor told us that our company was bought by an Indian company, and our jobs will be outsourced to India. Our office is closing in a month, but they still won't tell us the exact date.

    So, I am a statistic in the Oconomy. I hope things don't go the same way with your office, Jamie.

  112. Oh Rattle, that is a terrible story! Your's too, Jamie! My brother has just moved from the Tampa area, to out west, here in the mountains with me! His story is the same as your's! This is alarming. He was the manager of a successful business, being a developer of the product. He says the same thing about upper managment, and the loss of what had before seemed constructive comaraderie. So he has tossed in his hat and come out west. My son is having troubles also; hard times may come upon us, I fear - when the men begin to grumble around the kitchen table about the ability to provide, there is trouble brewing. Those who enact policy must do so with an eye to giving the people opportunity to provide for their families, not recieve a hand out. What are all these folks supposed to do, recieve unemployment? Where is that money coming from?? The liberals have elected their messiah, and he is a moron.


    Our Messiah's speech to the kids tomorrow. I fell asleep half way through it. I wonder how an eight year old is going to manage. TOTUS, how are you going to stay awake?

    I confess speed reading and skipping to the end. But it sounded to me like he was encouraging kids to adopt conservative values of innovation and hard work, of supporting the country and being a productive part. Okay. That means his motive must be to talk about himself, which, as we all know, he loves to do, and does in this speech. Which means he wants to be the center of attention to the kids, so that they think about him. Which means that even though they changed the language, this speech is still about Obama's cult of personality. And that personality is BOR-ring.

  114. I can guarantee that what is going to be said to the school kids isn't the original version; but it's still the smae in that now this insipid fool wants children to adore him as well as the adults.

    He craves adoration; fool, fool, fool.

    I accidently cautht the 'fired up' POS comment while clicking through channels; his yellow face turned me off more than his smarmy, fake tone of voice. What a lousy story, and no doubt a lie like everythng else he says.

    fool, fool, fool

    no doubt about it.

  115. I am fortunate that this year I reached the correct combination of age + years working, so I am going to retire. I could work many more years (I am not THAT old), but I don't think I could stand by and watch the office fall further. It makes me sick to my stomach. Right now I have to bite my tongue every time one of the bosses walks by so I won't show "disrespect" and be fired before I can retire. There are two others who are also going to retire with me, who are just as upset as I am. Unfortunately, the other people at my office won't fare so well.

    As for Obama's speech to the children. I believe announcing it and releasing the lesson plan ahead of time was a trial balloon to see if they could get away with it. They announced it far enough in advance so that, if there was an outcry, they could change the lesson plan to something more benign. As for the actual speech, it is probably the same as he planned all along. As bettyanne said, its all about Obama and the cult of personality. It is just the start to indoctrination. Don't think that it isn't. We'll see more of it in the future. Parents with school age children need to pay special attention to what is going on in their children's schools, what books the children are reading in school, special projects assigned, etc. and be sure to look through the actual schoolbooks to see what is in them!

    Get this - one school system in Florida is making it MANDATORY to watch the speech:

    "After receiving dozens of complaints from parents who didn't want their children to be forced to watch the speech, the Broward schools superintendent issued a ruling Thursday: There will be no opting out. `It's an important event,'' Superintendent Jim Notter said."

    FOXNews reported on this story, saying that Superintendent Notter has stated that if kids don't show up, they will be punished.


    Verification word - antinc

    Its official - I'm an antique!

  116. Yo, FOTs.
    Jamie, the Obots want to hang Bush and his administration, and not risk being investigated themselves. Think Panetta's job is secure because he knows where all the bodies are buried!? You betcha! I hope YOUR job situation improves, too.
    Oh, my article is at:

    Right, aero: Jones ran plumb out of apologies last week, so none came with his "resignation"----but he was actually tossed under the bus, cum Rev. Wrong. Not to worry, though: they'll find a way to slip Jones another job, maybe as a consultant to another Czar? They need his brain and "creative ideas," as Valerie Jarrett called it. ("So how else can we get rid of these conservatives, Jonesy?")
    Charles Krauthammer made the point that Jones "resigned" precisely at 12:01 p.m., the usual time for executions! BWAH HA HA! See why I treasure that CK!?

    (I got that laugh from YOU, TWW! Yoo Hoo, where art thou!?)

    Sorry your liberal "friend" ranted vs. you, bettyann! It's awful when a "friend" shafts us. Feel better: {{{ HUG }}}
    Thanks, though, for the (chilling!) info. re. Native Americans. Hmm.... I read somewhere that one tribe was completely nonviolent, and remembered it as the Navajo. Maybe it was the Hopi? Pretty sure it was a SW tribe. SO sorry!
    But I'm glad your books sold out!
    Yep, BO's crew merely switched the lingo for tomorrow's "lesson," but they left in all the hero-worship, cum all commies. "How can YOU help our BORE-in-Chief!?"
    Hey, I hope you'll let me know if your contacts in the military also feel (as mine do) that BO is sabotaging their work and putting their lives at risk?

    Oh, Rattlesnake! SORRY that your job is nearly gone. We'll pray you find another one, pronto. This economy is getting ridiculously scary.

    Well, FOTS, the Dems are trying to snip their health "care" plan into little pieces which are passed separately. They are pretending to skip a public option, but planning actually to build in an automatic trip for the PO----according to none other than Big Mouth Pelosi.

    And Gibbsy says the White House's opponents only want to start an "Animal House food fight," rather than propose health care plans. Sigh... what a lame analogy, given that it's the WH which is full of brutes.

  117. "THEY WILL BE PUNISHED!?" I thought the wienie liberals didn't BELIEVE in any of those silly old ideas and practices like "punishment" or "shame!"

    Also, I read that school books have had for YEARS already a lot of chapters and information about Obama and his supposedly "inspiring" life. The brain-washing continues!

  118. Rattler, that is sad news. Betty Ann, I'm sorry to hear that your bright, creative, brother was so mistreated that the only course left was to leave. I'll be praying for you, Rattler and for your son and brother, Betty Ann(and you, too, SusieQ -- are you out there "listening"? -- Take care.) Lots of dark gray clouds obscuring the sun for you these days. Keep on believing. It WILL come out again.

    Please allow me to share two favorite quotes; they seem to fit:

    "I believe in the sun even when it is not shining.

    I believe in love even when I feel it not.

    I believe in God even when He is silent."

    [Found written on a cell wall of a prison in Cologne, Germany]

    And, from the finest champion of liberty the world has ever known, Sir Winston Churchill:








    Dear Jamie, I am sorry to hear of your frustratingly obnoxious new management. I'm going to presume and pray that God will provide a different workplace for you. I doubt your current one will get any better. The pigs are living in the house now and they've turned it into a sty [Animal Farm allusion]. Hang in there, kid. Even THIS is going to "work together for good." [Romans 8:28]

    HEY, MM! Somehow, you knew that Charles Krauthammer was looking for a research assistant. If you have any contacts in that area, how about helping out Jamie? She's a NATURAL. And, Jamie, look around for research assistant jobs (you could to it at home, so don't limit yourself geographically).


    Congratulations on a sold-out booksigning, Betty Ann! :D My guess is, if a posse arrives at your door, it will be to demand autographs or that you hurry up and finish the next book.

    So, you were wearing your Joker T-shirt again, huh? ;) Seriously, I'm sorry you had to go through that abusive encounter. Dealing with the mentally disturbed can be unnerving at times. As Jamie pointed out, fear was likely sending the blood rushing to his brain and the faulty wiring was burning up. Rage in a patient is a strong indication that the therapist is getting at some powerful truth. Remember the movie "Snowbound?" Every time psychiatrist Ingrid Bergman brought patient Gregory Peck near the truth, he became engraged.

    As a therapist once advised me re: an abusively, slanderously, angry confrontation I had on the phone once: It was okay to have that conversation -- once. Don't have it again.

    Cult members react strongly, even violently, when confronted with the truth about their twisted leader or about the falsity of their Cult's teachings. Remember in the 70's how hard some parents tried to "de-program" their children who had been brainwashed by cults? Some of those kids are still out there, huh?

    Guess the best thing a person can do is just break a broom over their head. Heh, heh.

    You go, girl! HURRAH FOR BETTY ANN.

    Oh, and yes, the "noble savage" idea about American Indians and their "religious" beliefs is a bunch of bunk. There are good and bad Indians just like there are good and bad of any culture/race.


    MISTER Preptile! Another stupendous piece. That E I E I O was brilliant. "Van crushed ... under the wheels of the bus." LOL. Loved it. Can't watch the video with my dial-up -- excruciating load:play ratio.

    By the way.... MM ran out of peas (she used them like they were going out of style). Perhaps, you might lend her some.

    Glad the golfing was a grinningly good time.

    Say, do you have a real dog now (that has a P problem) or just an avatar?

    Yeah, I always wondered about that widget, too... it was fun to think that folks whose "English is quite" were reading, but it appeared to be a little "canned." Perhaps, it was the readership of the entire "Blogspot" site.

    Just about used up my word quota, I think.


  119. [MM] "TWW! Yoo Hoo, where art thou!?"

    I was writing and writing and writing (again!). Then, a 45 min. long distance phone call ... .

    Thanks for the sincerest form of flattery, imitating the "Bwah, ha, haaaaaa." Actually, I used to spell it Bah, ha, haaaa! (sometimes still do). I saw another blogger (Who??) spell it "bwah" and liked that better.

    I like Rattler's emoticon above... XD


    Shovel, that was a wonderfully well-written post. Enjoyed it and forgot to mention it above.

    [Shovel] "... these Bozos want to run our health care? They couldn't run a 7-11."

    LOL. Hopey the Clown and the Bozos are in the pilot house --whooopeeee. And, you're right. They'd have to hire an (East) Indian to run their 7-11. Ouch! Sorry about that, Rattler. Say, R., maybe those rotters who took over at your workplace are planning to turn it into a mini-mart? Well, you can just tell them,

    "I AM OUT OF HERE. Come on, Louie, let's blow this popsicle stand."

    [Louie is just the stock straight man - sidekick character.]

  120. Jamie, you're retiring!!!

    That's GREAT NEWS!

    Sometimes, God has to put thorns in the nest as eagles do to get us to move on. [as with the eagle, so with the Lord, see, e.g., Deut. 32:11] Fly, Jamie! Fly! Soar high, aloft on the mighty breath of God, the sun glinting off your beautiful wings.

    The best is yet to come!

    Say, that reminded me of the lyrics of a poigant song I often hear at memorial services (DON'T CRY!):

    "And he will lift you up
    on eagles wings,
    bear you on the breath of God,
    make you to shine like the sun, and
    hold you in the palm of his hand."

  121. PPPPPPRreppppptile!

    Just remembered something funny I heard on XM Ch. 5 (50's music) yesterday. There was a bee boppin' little song that went:

    "Who put the bop in the bop-shoo-bop?


    I couldn't believe my ears.

    Just had to share.

    You're welcome.

  122. Just returning from din-din, TWW!
    Hey, next time you write Preptile about the RHAMADAMADINGDONG, say, "Thank me!"----just as "The Great One," Mark Levin, would say.
    hee hee ;->

    I'm glad you're able to retire now, Jamie! TWW is totally correct that you'd make a terrific research assistant. Send your resume to ----and the job is for a one- or two-year term (so maybe his usual assistant is off, having a child or caring for another relative?). If he's already hired someone, he still might pass your resume on to other Big Time columnists or pundae.

    Hey, TOTUS, ole buddy, ole pal! I know why you aren't posting a new article: you're waiting until the holiday is over (check!), and also waiting until BO's Big Teach-In tomorrow (checkmate)! I can't wait to read your "take" on THAT sickening Fawn-Away. BLEAH!

  123. Hey TWW - now you know how I feel when I get online and everybody else disappears! LOL

    Don't worry, they'll be back.

    RAHM-a-DAM-a-dingdong ..... love it! The WH is full of dingdongs.

    Just got off the phone with my son, who is in school at Auburn. One of his frat brothers was diagnosed with Swine flu and had to go home. Official school policy = SEND THEM HOME. I just told Nick to be careful and go to the doctor if he ran a high fever, started coughing, etc. (He won't go to the doctor unless you make him.)

    It seems that BO is back on Card-Check! That is what his speech to the AFL-CIO picnic was all about today. I guess they figure they had better RAHM the Card-Check bill thru asap. They need more companies unionized so they can get MORE POWER, MORE VOTES!

    If it isn't one thing, its another. I had forgotten about Card-check. Actually, I thought that it had been defeated! I had better check NumbersUSA to see if there are some faxes for me to send out!

    Yes, Jones will still be involved in policy making, just as Daschle is still involved in the admin, even after he didn't make it to BO's cabinet post. He is an "advisor".

    This all stinks to high heaven.

    The sad thing about the Obama speech in schools and kids staying home or "opting out" for alternative activities - there will be some teachers (Obama-ites) who will make it a point to ostracize the kids who opt out. Just like that teacher last year who picked on the little girl who said she supported McCain (on the video that was being filmed for Swedish tv.)

    And we all thought that they didn't allow bullying in schools these days. OH YEAH - kids can't bully other kids, but the teachers can bully whomever they want.

  124. I uploaded a video from the rally!

    My username is punkinheadcharlie on youtube. I'll upload another one tomorrow.

    MM and TWW, thanks for your prayers. I'm not sorry to leave that office, I just wish it was under better circumstances. "Let's blow this popsicle stand!" Good one, I should say that when I leave. Or, like that country song says, "Take this job and shove it!"

    As for BO's speech tomorrow, I'm glad he's not talking about anything too political, but I still don't think kids should be forced to watch it. Jamie's right that the announcement ahead of time was a test to see how much Obama could get away with.

  125. "Who was that man? I'd like to shake his haaaa ah ahnd. He made my baby fall in love with me. Bhaw...."

  126. Hi, MM! Thanks for giving Jamie that job lead.

    Hi, Jamie. I just prayed for Nick (and his frat brother).

    [Jamie] "This all stinks to high heaven."

    LOL. That reminds me of a verse I just read (or I wouldn't have remembered it!):

    "Though the Lord is on high, he looks upon the lowly, BUT THE PROUD HE KNOWS FROM AFAR." [Psalm 138:6]

    God doesn't come near the wicked because......... THEY STINK! >.<

  127. Susan.... ? LOL. I have no idea what you are singing about, but you sure are fun!



    WAY TO GO!

    Glad to hear you're "okay with it" re: the release from job hell.

    Jamie, you might want to (after you get all your retirement benefits written in stone!) say a few choice words, say, how about:

    ".... and you, Ms. Wonder Hair, WHAT WERE YOU THINKING?!?"

  128. Well it's just another line from the song you referenced...

    "Who put the bop in the bop shoo bop shoo bop? who put the ram in the ramalamadingdong?...
    Who was that man....I'd like to shake his hand, he made my baby fall in love with me! Yeah!"

    You are kiddin do know that song, no?

  129. Oh.

    Thanks, Susan. (:D)

    I've heard that song before on the oldies station and now, on XM 5 ('50's), but I haven't heard it enough to memorize the words (that would take a LOT of times, for me -- I was just lucky to remember what I did!).

    I DO know (I think) this one:

    "He wore tan shoes with pink shoelaces,
    a polka-dot shirt and
    man, oh, man!
    He wore tan shoes with pink shoelaces -- a big Panama with a purple hat band.
    -- Big Panama with a purple hat band!"

  130. Hey, guys----I don't know those songs! What are their titles, so I can see if they're available on Youtube?

    That last song's lyrics sound like they'd work PERFECTLY for the young Obama-pimp of the photo on this, TOTUS' most recent article. CREE-pay!

    Eeyew! O'Reilly said tonight that he doesn't side with the nut-jobs like US who think BO has evil plans. HUNH!? O'R just ripped up his true-reporter card, imo.

    Well, FOTS, time to drop the Benadryl, which will put me out for the duration. The hives are worse: ack!

    Hold your noses tomorrow, with all the fawning over BO's Teach-In. Let's pray that the children will all be SO-O bored with his 30+ minute ad that they'll nod off----thus avoiding the mind-bending indoctrination.

    TOTUS! SCROLL, baby.

  131. The View from England -- A Conversation Between the Sam Wellerses, Jr. and Sr. (of Dickens' Pickwick Papers)

    [Please pardon my poor attempt at their diction and style -- anachronisms intentional]

    Scene: Typical London pub mid-morning; the two Sams are reconnoitering over beer, bacon, and boiled eggs until Sam, Jr.'s next stagecoach run; Jr. is reading the morning Times while Sr. listens and emits verbal annotations.

    Jr.: Says 'ere, "The new occupant of The White House stolidly refuses to reveal his birth certificate --

    Sr.: -- Not born in the United States, that 'un. (places finger beside his nose and nods significantly)

    Jr.: -- but holds to his claim to be native born."

    Sr.: Wot did aye tell ye? Came from the land of the Hottentots, he did.

    Jr.: (glances over paper at dad, raises eyebrow, and continues to read) "Mr. Obama appears to have some gaps

    Sr.: -- an' in 'is medical records an' 'is edyoocation records an' 'is passport (Ha! That bloke couldn't get from Dover to Calais with his papers)... the man's one big gap.

    Jr.: -- in his education, for instance, the fifth grade, as evidenced by his failing to know how many states there are in the United States."

    Sr.: Wot? E's dumb as a post. Even my cleanin' lady's ten-year-old knows that. (head shake) They've really outdone themselves this time, them 'mericans have.

    Jr.: I'll drive on past the speech bits, mostly just, "Uuuuhs and aaaaands." Well, listen to this, dad: "As a gift to her majesty the Queen, Mr. Obama presented a toy and a copy of" -- hold onto yer 'at -- "HIS SPEECHES!"

    Sr.: (eyes widen) A toy? A TOY?! An insult to our Queen is an insult to all Britain! Why, oiv 'alf a moind tah dig out muh old gun and hop a ship and teach that blighter a lesson! ..... His speeches? Why, he's made an attempt on the Queen's loif, 'e 'as -- troid tuh bore 'er tuh death, 'e did. (starts to rise and wrap his scarf about his neck -- Jr. gently grabs his arm and pulls him back onto the bench)

    Jr.: Aaa, wait a bit, dad. Wait'll I 'avetuh leave, don't get to see much of you. (tilts his head with a smile)

  132. Sr.: (growls) Oh, all roit, then, son. Guess it can wytuntill this evenin'. Go on. Read.

    Jr.: "Mr. Obama goes nowhere without 'is teleprompter." --

    Sr.: -- dumb as a post.

    Jr.: "Mr. Obama is a Muslim, proudly affirming that fact in an interview with journalist George St...fflapos."

    Sr.: 'E's wot?! Wot ails these 'mericans? Do they all want to commit suicoid? Why don't they just jump off a bridge.... or buy some quinine ..... (head shake) Tsk, tsk, tsk. I alwyse thought them Yankees was touched, but oi never thoht oid see the day.... tsk, tsk.

    Jr.: Well, blow me down.... (reads silently) --

    Sr.: Wot isit? Yer killin' me, here.

    Jr.: -- (guffaws) get a load of this, dad, "At a rallies across the land, thousands

    Sr.: -- there's thousands of them lunatics runnin' around loose? --

    Jr.: -- "...of Mr. Obama's supporters waved banners and chanted slogans demanding that Congress hand over control of the entire medical establishment to" -- are ye ready for this? -- "to MR. OBAMA to run."

    Sr.: (shocked silence -- then, solemnly) ... They want that numbskull to dole out their medicinals. A man wot doesn't even know what language they speak in Austria.... .

    Jr.: (stunned, slowly puts down paper, stares soberly across table at dad) Dad, I ... jeeehosaphat, dad, I got to get over to Murray's brokerage right now and get my money outta them American investments. I'd heard their shyster of a treasury secretary was printing money by the coal bargeful, but I was holdin' steady..... until now. (gets up, wraps scarf firmly around neck, heads for door with determined step) I'm sorry, dad, if ya can see it, wait fer me, if not, farewell. I've got to get my money out before the ship goes down. (heads hastily up the street, slamming door behind him)

    Sr.: (sadly takes a long pull on his beer, wipes the foam from his upper lip and a tear from his cheek) Always did like them 'mericans. They was too cocksure and full of vinegar, but, I liked them. D--n! Why did they have to go insane? (stands up straight and stiff, at attention, salutes) Farewell, old chum. It was nice knowin' ye.


    "'In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.'" John 16:33.]

  133. Hope you're feeling better today, MM. Take care.


    "Now I've got a guy and his name is Dooley
    He's my guy and I love him truly
    He's not good lookin', heaven knows
    But I'm wild about his crazy clothes

    He wears tan shoes with pink shoelaces
    A polka dot vest and man, oh, man
    Tan shoes with pink shoelaces
    And a big Panama with a purple hat band

    ooh-ooh, ooh, ooh
    ooh-ooh, ooh, ooh

    He takes me deep-sea fishing in a submarine
    We got to drive-in movies in a limousine
    He's got a whirly-birdy and a 12-foot yacht
    Ah, but thats-a not all he's got

    He's got tan shoes with pink shoelaces
    A polka dot vest and man, oh, man
    Tan shoes with pink shoelaces
    And a big Panama with a purple hat band

    Now Dooley had a feelin' we were goin' to war
    So he went out and enlisted in a fightin' corps
    But he landed in the brig for raisin' such a storm
    When they tried to put 'em in a uniform

    He wanted tan shoes with pink shoelaces
    A polka dot vest and man, oh, man
    He wanted tan shoes with pink shoelaces
    And a big Panama with a purple hat band

    ooh-ooh, ooh, ooh
    ooh-ooh, ooh, ooh

    Now one day Dooley started feelin' sick
    And he decided that he better make his will out quick
    He said "Just before the angels come to carry me
    I want it down in writin' how to bury me."

    A'wearin tan shoes with pink shoelaces
    A polka dot vest and man, oh, man
    Give me tan shoes with pink shoelaces
    And a big Panama with a purple hat band

    ooh-ooh, ooh, ooh
    ooh-ooh, ooh, ooh
    ooh-ooh, ooh, ooh

    And a big Panama with a purple hat band!! "

  135. WHO PUT THE BOMP...?

    "I'd like to find the guy who wrote the song,
    That made my baby fall in love with me.

    Who put the bomp in the bomp-a-bomp-a-bomp?
    Who put the ram in the ram-a-lam-a-ding-dong?
    Who put the bop in the bop sh-bop sh-bop?
    Who put the dip in the dip da dip da dip?
    Who was that man? I'd like to shake his hand,
    He made my baby fall in love with me.

    When my baby heard,
    Bomp, ba-ba-bomp ba bomp ba bomp bomp,
    Every word went right into her heart,
    And when she heard them singing,
    Ram-a-lam-a-lam-a-lam-a-lam-a ding dong,
    She said we'd never have to part.

    Who put the bomp in the bomp-a-bomp-a-bomp?
    Who put the ram in the ram-a-lam-a-ding-dong?
    Who put the bop in the bop sh-bop sh-bop?
    Who put the dip in the dip da dip da dip?
    Who was that man? I'd like to shake his hand,
    He made my baby fall in love with me.

    Each time that we're alone,
    Boogity boogity boogity boogity boogity boogity shoo,
    Set my babies heart all a-glow,
    And every time we dance,
    Dip da dip da dip dip da dip da dip,
    She always says she loves me so.

    Who put the bomp in the bomp-a-bomp-a-bomp?
    Who put the ram in the ram-a-lam-a-ding-dong?
    Who put the bop in the bop sh-bop sh-bop?
    Who put the dip in the dip da dip da dip?
    Who was that man? I'd like to shake his hand,
    He made my baby fall in love with me.

    Yeah! Bomp-a-bomp-a-bomp-a-bomp-a-bomp my heart aches,
    Ram-a-lam-a-ding dong for ever,
    When I say dip da dip da dip da dip,
    You know what I mean,
    From the bottom of my boogity boogity shoes.

    Who was that man,
    I'd like to shake his hand,
    He made my baby fall in love with me,
    Who put the bomp in the bomp-a-bomp-a-bomp?
    Who put the ram in the ram-a-lam-a-ding-dong?
    Who put the bop in the bop sh-bop sh-bop?
    Who put the dip in the dip da dip da dip?"

  136. and, one of my faves:


    "Six foot six, stood on the ground, weighed two hundred and thirty-five pounds,
    But I saw that giant of a man brought down to his knees by love.

    He was the kind of man to gamble on luck,
    Look you in the eye and never back up,
    But I saw him crying like a little whipped pup, because of love.

    Can't see it with your eyes, hold it in your hands,
    Like the wind it covers our land,
    Strong enough to rule the heart of any man, this thing called love.

    It can lift you up, it can put you down,
    Take your world and turn it around,
    Ever since time nothing's ever been found, stronger than love.

    Some men are like me, they worry and doubt,
    Trouble their minds day in and day out,
    Too busy with livin' to worry about, a thing called love.

    But then I see a mother's tenderness,
    As she holds her young close to her breast,
    Then I think by God this world was blessed, with a thing called love.

    Can't see it with your eyes, hold it in your hands,
    Like the wind it covers our land,
    Strong enough to rule the heart of any man, this thing called love.

    It can lift you up, it can put you down,
    Take your world and turn it around,
    Ever since time nothing's ever been found, stronger than love."

  137. another good sound effects song:


    "I told the witch doctor
    I was in love with you
    I told the witch doctor
    I was in love with you
    And then the witch doctor
    He told me what to do

    He said that

    Ooo eee,ooo ah ah ting tang
    Walla walla, bing bang
    Ooo eee ooo ah ah ting tang
    Walla walla bing bang...
    Ooo eee ,ooo ah ah ting tang
    Walla walla ,bing bang
    Ooo eee ooo ah ah ting tang
    Walla walla bing bang

    I told the witch doctor
    You didn't love me true
    I told the witch doctor
    You didn't love me nice
    And then the witch doctor
    He game me this advice

    He said that

    Ooo eee,ooo ah ah ting tang
    Walla walla, bing bang
    Ooo eee ooo ah ah ting tang
    Walla walla bing bang...
    Ooo eee ,ooo ah ah ting tang
    Walla walla ,bing bang
    Ooo eee ooo ah ah ting tang
    Walla walla bing bang

    You've been keeping love from me
    Just like you were a miser
    And i'll admit i wasn't very smart
    So i went out and found myself
    A guy that's so much wiser
    And he taught me the way to win your heart

    My friend the witch doctor
    He taught me what to say
    My friend the witch doctor
    He taught me what to do
    I know that you'll be mine
    When i say this to you

    Ooo eee,ooo ah ah ting tang
    Walla walla, bing bang
    Ooo eee ooo ah ah ting tang
    Walla walla bing bang...
    Ooo eee ,ooo ah ah ting tang
    Walla walla ,bing bang
    Ooo eee ooo ah ah ting tang
    Walla walla bing bang

    You've been keeping love from me
    Just like you were a miser
    And i'll admit i wasn't very smart
    So i went out and found myself
    A guy that's so much wiser
    And he taught me the way to win your heart

    My friend the witch doctor
    He taught me what to say
    My friend the witch doctor
    He taught me what to do

    Walla walla bing bang...
    Ooo eee ,ooo ah ah ting tang
    Walla walla ,bing bang
    Ooo eee ooo ah ah ting tang
    Walla walla bing bang"

    BO dressed as an African-Kenyan tribesman, singing this to get the world to lvoe him LOLOLOLOL

  138. I can imagine that, but he couldn't sing it without TOTUS. Too many words to remember.

    Can't you just imagine it,
    BO in his homeland's traditional garb,
    his head moving from side to side,
    as he read the words from TOTUS's screens?

    Except for the refrain (which I really love), I never knew the words to that song.

    Here is a verse from a song that I used to love to sing when I was a kid. Its the only part I can remember:

    Three, six, nine,
    The goose drank wine,
    The monkey chewed tobacco on the streetcar line,
    The line broke,
    The monkey got choked,
    And they all went to heaven in a little rowboat.
    clack, clack!

    I'm not even sure that the words are correct.

  139. "My friend the witch doctor
    He taught me what to say
    My friend the witch doctor
    He taught me what to do
    I know that you'll be mine
    When i say this to you"

    well, I figure the friend the 'Witch Doctor' is TOTUS ;-)

    I remember that being sing-songed while jumping rope;, AND WHILE PLAYING 'Patty-Cake' ("ooooh noooo, Jessicaaaa.....*sob*' Roger Rabbit) :


    Three, six, nine
    The goose drank wine
    The monkey chewed tobacco
    On the streetcar line

    The line broke
    The monkey got choked
    And they all went to Heaven
    In a little row boat

    Clap, pat, clap, pat
    Clap, pat, clap, slap

    //Clap, pat, clap your hand
    Pat it on your partners hand
    Right hand, clap, pat
    Clap your hand cross it
    With your left arm
    Pat your partners left palm

    Cap, pat, clap your hand
    Pat your partners right palm
    With your right palm again

    Clap, slap
    Slap your hands, slap your thigh
    And sing a little song, go//

    My mother told me
    If I was goody
    That she would buy me
    A rubber dolly

    My auntie told her
    I kissed a soldier
    Now she won't buy me
    A rubber dolly

    Three, six, nine
    The goose drank wine
    The monkey chewed tobacco
    On the streetcar line

    The line broke
    The monkey got choked
    And they all went to Heaven
    In a little row boat

    //Clap, pat
    Clap your hands and prepare to pat
    Clap, take your right arm
    Pat your partners right palm
    Lyrics courtesy Top40db.
    With your right palm

    Clap, take your hand back and clap
    Pat, take your right arm
    Cross your right arm with your left arm
    Pat your partners left palm
    With your left palm

    Clap, take your hand back and clap
    Pat, take your right arm
    Cross your left arm
    Pat your partners right palm
    With your right palm
    Clap, now back with the clap

    Take the pats of your palms
    And slap your thighs
    And watch the fun materialize
    As you sing this little song//

    My mother told me
    If I was goody
    That she would buy me
    A rubber dolly

    My auntie told her
    I kissed a soldier
    Now she won't buy me
    A rubber dolly

    Three, six, nine
    The goose drank wine
    The monkey chewed tobacco
    On the streetcar line

    The line broke
    The monkey got choked
    And they all went to Heaven
    On a little row boat

    Clap, pat, clap, pat
    Clap, pat, clap, slap
    Clap, pat, clap, pat
    Clap, pat, clap, slap....
