Midweek Political Satire

(with a hat tip to Lisa of Who's Your Daddy?)


The original theme song of the television series The Addams Family, which was humorous while the Obama administration is not humorous in any way:


That little tune is an earworm — a rather pleasant and harmless earworm. As we read in Oliver Sack's book Musicophilia, earworms can, however, result in serious insomnia and can drown out the enjoyment of life; so does the Obama administration.

This Is Paris In 2014

Please watch this short video, which speaks volumes about the demographic tipping point that Europe has reached (hat tip to Infidel Bloggers Alliance):


Of all the nations in the EU, France has the highest population of Muslims.

CAIR AND ISNA In Miami: "We are Hamas!"


From the mouth of the enemy on Sunday, July 20, 2014:


What they screamed (commentary on the chant in red):
“The martyr is God’s love.” This encourages one to die while committing Jihad — it is a celebration of terror attacks including suicide bombings.

“Khaybar, Khaybar Oh, Jew. Muhammad’s army will return.” This refers to a seventh-century massacre in which Muhammad’s army attacked the Jewish community of Khaybar in the Arabian Peninsula. The Jewish males who surrendered were beheaded; Muhammad and his soldiers then divided the women, children, and property. Islamists today routinely invoke this battle as a rallying cry to attack Jews.

“We are Hamas!” openly confirming support for a group officially designated a terrorist organization by the United States, the European Union, Japan, Jordan, and Egypt.

“We are Jihad!” thereby calling for holy war.

“Hamas kicked your ass.” That makes for an interesting contradiction: While claiming Gazans are being massacred, the group also claims to have defeated the Israel Defense Forces. Which is it?
Why are CAIR and ISNA even allowed to be here on our home soil? Both organizations are sworn to our destruction.

Thought For Today

(If you must have politics, please scroll down)

Mr. AOW has not driven a vehicle since his brain hemorrhage of September 15, 2009, and frequently makes use of MetroAccess, the paratransit service here in the D.C. area. Fares for door-to-door service range from a minimum of $3.60 each way to a maximum of $13.00 each way – in a limited service area.  

The service is heavily subsidized. Those vans are expensive to purchase and to fuel!  In addition, the drivers, who work long shifts, must be specially trained and paid a salary.

FEATURED QUESTION: World News

(This blog post will remain here for a few days)

Many all across the political spectrum are opining that Russian President Vladimir Putin has blood on his hands because of last week's downing of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17.

This FEATURED QUESTION, in two parts:

(1) Is Vladimir Putin to blame for the downing of the flight?

(2) If Putin is indeed responsible, what is the appropriate reaction on the part of the United States?

Quotation Of The Day

In spite of all of the blogsphere's many flaws, the blogosphere still provides words of wisdom and cuts through the poison of political correctness.

From Finntann of Western Hero:


[C]alling [illegal immigrants] "undocumented" is like calling a bank robbery "an undocumented withdrawal."



Furthermore, llegal immigrants make undocumented withdrawals from American workers' and taxpayers' pockets.

The "Insufficiently Engaged" President

Thus has the Washington Post reported.

The most recent evidence of Obama's being "insufficiently engaged": Even MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski Can't Understand Why Obama Won't Visit the Border.

Remember back when — when, in New Orleans, Obama criticized George W. Bush for not visiting "down here on the ground" during the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina?



Look here, Obama supporters.

You can whine all you like about "phony scandals" (IRS, Fast and Furious, Benghazi, the ObamaCare rollout, the VA delays, etc.).  But your man's failure to visit the border last week exposes your man as the narcissist and failed leader that he is.

Furthermore, in the process of this particular failure of leadership, Barack Hussein Obama has likely doomed any needed changes of or any needed adjustments to our nation's immigration policy.

The midterm elections will be held on November 4, 2014. We'll find out then if American voters have learned anything since November 2012.

New Gadget: The Grillbot

 (If you must have politics, please scroll down)

The cost? $119.95 at Amazon:


I think that I'll stick with my method for this household's Weber charcoal grill: a ball of aluminum foil as a grill-surface scrubber. Rub vigorously along both sides of the grill grate, then toss the ball of aluminum foil into the trash. Done!

Commenters, if you have a favorite grilling recipe, please consider sharing it with us. Summer is for grilling!
