Cover The Sphinx With Wax?

From this source:
The new and fresh like Arab Spring Egypt may desecrate the Sphinx...[and destroy]...the country’s $13 billion a year tourism industry while robbing the world of precious, priceless historical artifacts and landmarks. Welcome to Iran 2.0.
Fundamentalist Muslims do have a propensity for destroying artifacts. HERE is one example.

Hunkering Down Here

(Weekend humor post directly below this one, and political posts further down. Keep scrolling)

1. Inverter (DC to AC) for the sump pump and the fridge? Check. An inverter is especially useful as it doesn't have to be ventilated as does a gasoline-fueled generator.

2. Some bottled water and plenty of canned goods, etc.? Check.

3. Prescription meds for Mr. AOW and for me? Check.

Blogger Z! has this anecdotal story of interest today. Excerpt:
...In a shop in Beijing (a city in which guides tell you NOT to talk politics), [my cousins who recently visited China] saw row upon row of T shirts and coin purses that have a picture of Obama on them and the words OBA-MAO! My cousins asked how they heck they could do that and WHY? They said people in CHINA say that Obama's "MAO'S MOST FAMOUS STUDENT".......My cousins were stunned. The shop owner said "We here in Beijing think America's more Communist than we are now...we get to keep some of our money now."...

Quote Of The Day

From this source:

This president treats the gilded trappings of his office like they are his rights of kingdom.


He dances away the night of his 50th birthday at the White House and aims only for re-election, oblivious to how his administration has been destroying our economy, security and national cohesion.

But why blame a child for playing with his toys? It’s ignorant voters who present him with the toy chest.

Quote Of The Day

From the Telegraph in the UK:

Since President Obama took office in January 2009, the United States has embarked on the most ambitious failed experiment in Washington meddling in US history. Huge increases in government spending, massive federal bailouts, growing regulations on businesses, thinly veiled protectionism, and the launch of a vastly expensive and deeply unpopular health care reform plan, have all combined to instill fear and uncertainty in the markets. Free enterprise has taken a backseat to continental European-style interventionism, as an intensely ideological left wing administration has sought to dramatically increase the role of the state in shaping the US economy. The end result has been a dramatic fall in economic freedom, sluggish growth, poor consumer confidence, high unemployment, a collapsing housing market, and an overall decline in US prosperity, with more than 45 million Americans now reliant on food stamps – that’s over one seventh of the entire country.

These are increasingly dangerous times, with American leadership being challenged across the globe. Only an historic reduction in government spending combined with pro-growth measures including lower business tax rates to stimulate job creation and attract investment can turn the US economy around. Unfortunately, as Standard and Poor’s decision has shown, this is a presidency in extreme denial over America’s towering debts, leading a nation on a precipice while blindfolded to reality.
