The Idea Is Spreading?

(With a hat tip to Beamish)

A follow-on to THIS INFORMATION, read these words from Peter Orszag, Obama's former OMB director (dated September 14, 2011):
To solve the serious problems facing our country, we need to minimize the harm from legislative inertia by relying more on automatic policies and depoliticized commissions for certain policy decisions. In other words, radical as it sounds, we need to counter the gridlock of our political institutions by making them a bit less democratic. [source]

Midweek Humor

With a hat tip to Randy's Roundtable:

The more you learn about Obama's so-called jobs plan, the more you'll realize the truth of the above political cartoon.

If the so-called jobs plan is implemented, the failure of it will be Solyndra on an epic scale.

Litigious Idiocy

(With a hat tip to Tammy Swofford)

Check out this story, dated September 14, 2011. Read the entire article, but first set down your beverage so as not to ruin your computer or choke when you guffaw.

A morbidly obese stockbroker is suing a White Castle restaurant in New York because he cannot fit into the restaurant's seats.

He has been eating the restaurant chain's food for some fifty-two years and still sends his wife on burger runs to the restaurant!

Tolerance For Its Own Sake

For those of you that do not know me, it has been one of my ongoing themes that one of the ways leftists seek to control the masses is through the twisting of language and the redefinition of words. Abortion become freedom of choice, taxes become investments (and so on) in an Orwellian fashion.

Is discrimination a bad thing?

We all know that racial discrimination is a civil crime and not to be tolerated but discrimination, in and of itself, is not a bad thing. At one time a refined person would have been said to have discriminating tastes and we all discriminate in our personal choices whether it is in our choice of food or our style of hair cut. We also discriminate when we choose not to associate with criminals but in this age of political correctness discrimination, along with profiling, has become the war cry of the Progressive witch hunt.

Leftists, become Socialists, become Liberals, become Progressives. Wearing out each name until it becomes a bad taste in our mouths and then moving on to another label with the same old tired tactics and asking... no DEMANDING, our toleration of the intolerable and intolerant.

Blog Break

The homeschool classes that I teach resume today. I'll return to blogging as soon as I've settled into my schedule for this school term. I will be making blog rounds if and when I can.

In the meantime, I leave you with the following videos (hat tip to Z):

Never Forget

Set to the music of Samuel Barber's "Agnus Dei" from Adagio for Strings:

Leftist though he may be, Bruce Springsteen's "You're Missing" reminds us of the personal devastation wrought by Muslim terrorists on 9/11:

For this tenth anniversary of 9/11, as Barack Hussein Obama and a whole raft of others try to sing kumbaya with the Islamic world, we see that the left would like for all of us to forget 9/11 and ignore the still-present threat of Islamic terrorism.

I won't.

Not ever.

No matter how much revisionism is tossed out there for the dhimmis to suck up — even as the Ground Zero Mosque rises above the World Trade Center in New York City on the occasion of the tenth anniversary of 9/11 is used as a fundraiser for that Islamic center.

Read the names of the fallen. And take time to watch this excellent flash presentation, and gaze upon the faces of the fallen.

Never forget what happened on that day of cerulean and cloudless skies — cloudless until the smoke billowed from three sites: the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and Shanksville.

Never forget that on this tenth anniversary of 9/11, by order of Mayor Bloomberg, the first responders on that day will be denied admission to the 9/11 National Memorial in New York City.

The President has turned the commemoration of 9/11 into a day of community service instead of a solemn commemoration that focuses on the events of that day (Alinsky Rule #6). And a few weeks before 9/11, the Empire State Building was, once again, bathed in the light of Islamic green. Not to mention this inclusion in the 9/11 Memorial in New York City: this hardhat with an Obama symbol on it.

The attack on the Pentagon is all but forgotten in several respects. The official memorial built in Shanksville, Pennsylvania, is a betrayal.

9/11 is morphing into stories about how Muslims are victims; see this Associated Press video. And the Washington Post has been publishing the series entitled "Under Suspicion: Muslims in America."

We are watching revisionist history taking place.

Never forget that human remains are still being identified through DNA testing, even ten years later. See THIS STORY in the August 24, 2011 edition of the Telegraph. Ernest James is the 1629th victim to be identified; some 1121 victims have not been identified, and the forensic experts are not yet halfway through the 21,000 fragments of human remains retrieved for testing. Many human remains have not been, and never will be, recovered.

Remember 9/11, that day of horror: where you were, what you were doing before and after the attacks, the shock and the sorrow and the rage you felt.

And remember that the Sons of Allah would again do the same — or worse — if they could.

Quote Of The Day (With Video)

From 2421Rich, who commented HERE to my crosspost of "YOUR TAX DOLLARS AT WORK":

Obama has done what many thought was impossible. He has brought much more than the usual share of baseness and depravity to the machinations of our Government. The corruption is many sided and far reaching but it all starts with him. The quality of the man is seen first in the little things.

It is conspicuous in his personal rapacious attitude toward the perks of the presidency. When he is not perverting and misusing those perks, he and the First Lady are grabbing all they can get regardless of what people in the rest of country are suffering.

His moral hollowness has spread with his appointments to all the government agencies.

We have a State Department that insults and attacks the victim (Israel) while upholding the enemies of the USA.

We have an unjust Justice Department that thinks it is charge of Affirmative Action and attacking political targets.

We have crony-ism, graft and corruption throughout the Federal System as Obama uses the government to reward his friends and punish his enemies.

The stench Obama has brought to Washington is spreading through out the country and rising to the heavens.

Come 2012, Washington will need many long hot showers with several cleansing enemas!

Particularly appropriate after Obama's speech to Congress last night. As Les Carpenter III, the blog master at the previous link, stated:

Your Tax Dollars At Work

(Two posts today, the earlier post a humorous one)


From this source:
Reuters' Caren Bohan (via Weasel Zippers) alerts us to another judicious use of taxpayer dollars: employing Air Force One to fly a bunch of overfed union bosses to a Labor Day rally in Detroit. These are the same lugs who feed at the troth of the taxpayer and then declare all-out-war on us "sons-of-bitches".
Go HERE to see the screen shots.

And the mainstream media remain silent, with the result that most Americans don't know just how hideous the level of corruption under the Obama administration, an administration that harps on "shared sacrifice."

America has become an oligarchy.

Of course, no member of Congress will be driving it. Heh.

Finally! An Invitation!

(If you must have politics, please scroll down)

About a year ago, I wrote THIS. Much of what I wrote then has remained the same. Mr. AOW and I are isolated because of his physical disabilities.

Then, out of the blue, we have received an invitation for a cookout today!

Plenty of men will be there to help me unload Mr. AOW from the car and to help him during the cookout.
