Can this be Right?

Remember the outcry when Obama was going to address every school-child in the nation? There was such a showing of distrust that he really did have to make it a harmless "do good in school, try hard, and prosper" kind of speech. Now, according to Pamela Geller, he's trying again with the older students:

Obama is using our public school system to recruit for his Alinsky-inspired private army. Organizing for America is (and I quote) recruiting in our high schools to "build on the movement that elected President Obama by empowering students across the country to help us bring about our agenda" ............of national socialism.

The Ohio High School is Perry Local in Massillon, Ohio.

This is incredible. And evil. Suffer the little children -- enlisted like SS youth. This is no accident. Obama is poisoning our public school system. He acts as if it's his own private breeding farm. Once again academic learning and achievement is hopelessly abandoned, and supplanted by radical leftist activism from the leftwing Alinsky indoctrinators in the perversepublic school system.

Children must be advised to expose this ugly propaganda. Children must tell their parents how they are being used and manipulated. Parents, warn your kids. Better yet, home school.

Check out the recommended reading list page 4:

* Rules for Radicals, Saul Alinsky
* The New Organizers, Zack Exley
* Stir It Up: Lessons from Community Organizing and Advocacy, Rinku Sen
* Obama Field Organizers Plot a Miracle, Zack Exley, Huffington Post
* Dreams of My Father Chicago Chapters, Barack Hussein Obama

I don't have a problem with volunteering. Our high school requires it, in fact. But there's a big difference between cleaning up at the Veterans Home and organizing rallies in support of government programs. This is a misuse of the school system.

I suspect though, with Obama's supporters dropping like flies buzzing past Rosie O'Donnell's armpit, this program will face more opposition than support. I even updated their poster for them:

Yes, it's true: in the future, our ears will be two inches

Turtle Wax

I had always assumed they called it turtle wax because it was
made from turtles. I imagined giant rollers and huge presses;
working through the night to wring out the precious wax.

It wasn't until the line stopped that the women began
noticing the amazing coincidence. Soon they realized

Going Out for Dinner

A group of 40 year old buddies discuss and discuss where they should meet for dinner. Finally it is agreed upon that they should meet at Gasthaus Gutenberger restaurant because the waitress’s there have low cut blouses and nice breasts.

10 years later, at 50 years of age, the group meets again and once again they discuss and discuss where they should meet. Finally it is agreed upon that they should meet at the Gasthaus Gutenberger because the food there is very good and the wine selection is good also.

10 years later at 60 years of age, the group meets again and once again they discuss and discuss where they should meet. Finally it is agreed upon that they should meet at the Gasthaus Gutenberger because they can eat there in peace and quiet and the restaurant is smoke free.

10 years later, at 70 years of age, the group meets again and once again they discuss and discuss where they should meet. Finally it is agreed upon that they should meet at the Gasthaus Gutenberger because the restaurant is wheel chair accessible and they even have an elevator.

10 years later, at 80 years of age, the group meets again and once again they discuss and discuss where they should meet. Finally it is agreed upon that they should meet at the Gasthaus Gutenberger because they have never been there before.

Don't Jump!

Deep within a forest a little turtle began to climb a tree. After hours of effort he reached the top, jumped into the air waving his front legs and crashed to the ground. After recovering, he slowly climbed the tree again, jumped, and fell to the ground.

The turtle tried again and again while a couple of birds sitting on a branch watched his sad efforts. Finally, the female bird turned to her mate.

"Dear," she chirped, "I think it's time to tell him he's adopted."

Hurricane Coming

No, you go ahead and evacuate. I'm going to save this tree.

To avoid being killed for their fur; this breed developed
what the scientists call "draping behavior".

More of a mutant than an evolutionary advance: the child-faced bunny.

One year in we get the answer to "why Joe Biden?" I have never seen such contemplative head bobbing and animated facial expressions. Why yes Mr. President I suppose that's true. Oh my, Mr. President, I'd never thought about it like that before. What a revelation, of course, why yes, I'd say you hit that nail right on the head, Mr. President. Oh Mr. O, that mot was so bon!

I'm not criticizing; I know he was just doing what was expected of him. I'm just amazed anyone could do it so well. It was distracting, how well he did it. Maybe that was the point though. Maybe they want us talking about Joe so we'll forget that the President said he would work with Republicans. He actually said that you know.

So I guess tort reform is back on the table. Yeah, sure it is. Even sagely nodding Joe can't get me to believe that whopper.

Obama Prepares

Obama straightens the tie in the mirror. Which mirror reflects Kit, the offshoot of foxifer former.

Behold Utopia

"I offer you health care that Latvians, circa 1930, could only dream about."

Next Costume

I know what my next Halloween costume is: 30 pounds of flank steak and a dozen rubber-bands.

"What choo talkin' bout Willis?"

"I know this picture will be all over the internet before I even get home."

Gary Coleman seems to have stepped in it again. He was arrested for domestic violence, and sure, it's an awesome mugshot, but I wish he'd get his act together. When you're shy of five foot tall you should avoid all violence, domestic or imported otherwise.

***Update, von brudi, har:

'Bout Willis, what'choo talkin' is.


The Obamanator said:

“We had to make so many decisions quickly in a very difficult set of circumstances that after awhile, we started worrying more about getting the policy right than getting the process right,” Obama told ABC’s Diane Sawyer Monday. “But I had campaigned on process—part of what I had campaigned on was changing how Washington works, opening up, transparency. ...The health care debate as it unfolded legitimately raised concerns not just among my opponents, but also amongst supporters that we just don't know what's going on. And it's an ugly process and it looks like there are a bunch of back room deals.”

So he admits to the no transparency part so he can assert that there aren't a lot of back-room deals. But if there aren't a lot of back room deals; why can we list them? Why does Nebraska contribute less than everyone else? Why are the insurance companies and big Pharma supporters of Obamacare? What about the Louisiana purchase? And why is a union member somehow a different class of citizen who doesn't have to pay a tax on the same exact product for which I am taxed?

And those are just a few of the ones we know about. What the lack of transparency does is make me wonder what the deals are that I don't know about.

No-Fly Guys

I think at the very least, when you catch some guy testing the system, he should say hello to mister potato in a sock. You know these guys are just looking for security weaknesses:

Security sources say an Egyptian was stopped last Saturday as he tried to board an American Airlines flight to Miami. A man from Saudi Arabia was banned from boarding a United Airlines flight to Chicago the next day and sent back to Saudi.

The incidents and the raised threat level follow the failed Christmas Day bombing on a plane over Detroit.

Anti-terror officials said the past week had seen an "unusually high" number of people on their no-fly list trying to board US-bound planes.

Also, re that no fly list, can you imagine how your life would change if you got on it? (either for cause, or by mistake) Places you can fly to in 4 or 5 hours would be a week away by car.

I remember while working in Utah, I got an afternoon call that my wife had appendicitis. (which turned out fine by the way) By 9:00 that evening I was standing in her hospital room in D.C., realizing that I still had parts and tools from the Utah job in my coat pocket. If it weren't for airlines, I wouldn't have seen her until after she had her appendix out and had gone home from the hospital. Heck, without airlines, I couldn't have worked in other states, at all. (much less ones that were at the other end of the country)

And there are a million names on that list? I'd be pretty ticked-off if I ended up on the list by accident. It would be like being transported back to the 1930's when it took six months to plan a cross country trip.

March for Life

Sorry for the light blogging. (ever think that sounds weird: "light blogging"? Like, "My uncle thought he was going to go to jail for the DWI, but the judge let him off with a light blogging.")

I was hoping to publish pictures from this year's March for Life, but a cantankerous USB cable is holding the pictures hostage in lumberkid's camera. Said kid, by the way, who marched with a broken foot this year.

The media's willful blindness to this march is way past being a joke. Witness CNN’s Rick Sanchez:

Huh? Rick guesses that there were probably fewer than 200 thousand (estimate) on the counter-protester side? Really?

The above picture is from the mass before the march last year. The kid says it was just as full this year. The child didn't see a single pro-deather all day. So yeah Rick, your team was outnumbered.
