Obama Pokes Fun at Washington’s Snow and Ice

January 28, 2009

You can take the Obama out of Chicago, but you cannot take the Obama out of Obama. Obama is a combination of Arrogance, Hubris and Ignorance.

After his daughters got a snow day Wednesday, President Barack Obama said that he wants Washington to show some “flinty, Chicago toughness.” Double WOW! One week in town and he’s already preaching to the people who voted overwhelmingly for him – his now hometown. This screed comes from someone who doesn’t have to drive anywhere in the ice and snow – much less drive to work. Where’s the compassion man, for those who do have to drive on streets that suddenly become sheets of ice between the melting and thawing temperatures? WTOP.com

Obama seems not changed at all from his younger days he wrote about in his books, when he was living in New York City and critiquing the natives there. They were so bourgeois that “We’d Laugh at the Faces.” He and his buddies entertained themselves laughing at the upper-class “white people from the better neighborhoods” because they were actually following the rules of the community in which they lived. Obama wrote it in his own words in “Dreams From My FatherBarack Obama Book,” pages 3, 4.

“I’d usually stop to talk to the boys who hung out on the stoop all summer long about the Knicks or the gunshots they’d heard the night before. When the weather was good, my roommate and I might sit out on the fire escape to smoke cigarettes and study the dusk washing blue over the city, or watch white people from the better neighborhoods nearby walk their dogs down our block to let the animals shit on our curbs — ‘Scoop the poop, you bastards!’my roommate would shout with impressive rage and we’d laugh at the faces of both master and beast, grim and unapologetic as they hunkered down to do the deed. I enjoyed such moments –” ~~Barack Obama in “Dreams From My Father,” pages 3, 4.)

Obama has probably already started writing his latest book: “Dreams from My Father for Washington – No Mo’ Snow Days.”


America’s New Theme Song

January 28, 2009

FORGET ‘My Country Tis of Thee.’ America’s new song is “PAY ME MY MONEY DOWN.”

Corporations do it, banks do it, Wall Street’s a doing it, so why not us working stiffs? March on Washington and surround the White House, chanting to Mr. Obama: “PAY ME MY MONEY DOWN.” Afterall, Obama loves chants, doesn’t he? Do you think we can enlist “The Boss” Mr. Springsteen as our leader?

Don’t worry about that nasty threat of  “go to jail.” That’ll never happen again, as our great new leader of America’s Treasury and Income Tax Departments, Timothy Geithner, has shown by example. Secretary of the Treasury Geithner says to follow his lead and don’t bother paying your taxes. “Go to jail” ain’t never gonna happen no more. The worst to expect is that you may be asked to fill a high-paying, fat cat goverment position – like Secretary of the Treasury, in charge of the IRS. OH GLORY!


OBAMUNISM

January 26, 2009

America is in such terrible shape because the American electorate is dumb and uneducated, the American media are disgracefully corrupt and ignore their Constitutional role, our political leaders are self-serving and inept, or dishonest, our business leaders are crooks and the administrators of America’s banking system are swindlers. Thankfully, OBAMUNISM has arrived just in time to save us. OBAMUNISM is a combination of communism, socialism, and Marxism implemented and overseen by the Alpha and Omega of our time, our beloved Messiah, Barack Obama.

I know it is true as I read it in an advertisement on Facebook for tee-shirts.

Paying Taxes Is Voluntary

January 24, 2009

Great News! Change Has Arrived. It is Change You Can Believe In!
The American government does not FORCE you to pay taxes. Paying taxes is voluntary.

The Senate Majority Leader of the United States Congress, Senator Harry Reid, says that paying taxes is NOT mandatory for Americans. It is voluntary.


Facebook for Idiots

January 23, 2009

Facebook Scams For Idiots

Facebook applications are mostly designed for idiots. When I first joined Facebook, because I love genealogy, I got involved with the Family Tree Application. It was so difficult to set up, entering all of my ancestors and relatives, that I have hesitated to delete it, as I have already done with most of the other applications I had set up. After doing all of that setting up, I cannot use the Family Tree App as it is more difficult to edit than it was to set up. Who has that much time to tinker?

The Facebook applications that I use that I find worthwhile, good and not idiotic are Stanza, Twitter, Photos, Portable Reading, Posted Items and Notes. Groups, Events, Picnik, WordPress and Gifts seem to be okay although I’ve not used them much.

I have come to despise  all of those Facebook applications that come to you as “Invitations from your Friends.” You feel the need to honor your friends, so you respond. Then when you allow your “friends’ application” to access your information, the first thing it does is to go in and grab the names of all of your friends and mass spam them with the very same “Invitations from your Friends” that you just received. Only this time, your name is on it as the sender. I HATE, HATE, HATE them for doing that! Those applications that do not Mass Spam have a different ploy. You need to enter your cell phone number to get the response that they tell you is awaiting you from your friend. Once you give that information, then you are told that $9.95 will be charged to your cell phone. Oh cool! Well, I have been getting wiser and warier with these tricky FaceBook apps.

Back to the “Family Tree” application. I’m a genealogist, so I couldn’t resist. First mistake! It could be fun, but it is instead bogus. Everytime I go to edit it, there is a “flashing” message, such as today’s “You Have Two Secred Admirers. Click to Find Out Who They Are.” So, idiot that I am, I click. Next the Family Tree App wants to know whether I am male or female, before they give me the messages from my secret admirers. Next step, it will cost me $9.95 to retrieve each one of the “Secret Admirer Messages.” I’m only a little stupid – I’m not THAT stupid!

Oh FaceBook, Grow Up Before I Really Get Ticked and Leave You For Good!

Obama, He’s NO Caroline Kennedy “You Know”

January 23, 2009

Obama Speaks – But He’s NO Caroline Kennedy! He’s worse! But no one’s brave enough to tell him!

It is one good thing for Barack Obama that he was not born a woman like “You Know” Caroline Kennedy. He would be burnt toast, “You Know.”  Obama would never have survived the vetting to be appointed a Senator, much less become the President of the United States of America, “You Know.” Three “Uhs” and Four “You Knows” in just fourteen seconds sets a world record that even Ms. Kennedy has never beaten. It must be their uppercrusted Harvard University education, that most of the rest of us lack.

WOW! We got us such an articulate “UH” President, who would ever “UH” ‘misunderestimate’ him, “You Know?”

Vodpod videos no longer available.

 Barack Obama to the Press: “Ask me no questions and I’ll tell you no lies, ‘UH’ … ‘You Know.'”


American Insanity

January 22, 2009

It is a “World Turned Upside Down.”

Inauguration Week of 2009, finds the United States of America beginning a descent into self-destructive insanity. How else can one describe a nation that is planning to close down an off-shore island prison housing dangerous terrorists, and bring them all into the United States where they will have the same rights and protections as any American citizen, and the same access to the courts as any red-blooded American burglar? While, at the same time, the government of the United States of America wants to hand over the former administrators of its nation, Bush, Cheney, CIA operatives and anyone else involved in the War on Terror, to a World Court, to be prosecuted as War Criminals, outside of the United States.

“If terrorists suddenly get the same rights as citizens, then we’ve turned the world upside down,” said Rep. Lamar Smith, R-Texas, as he attempts to introduce a bill that would outlaw the release of known terrorists into the United States when President Obama closes Guantanamo.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Rep. John Conyers, Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee Plan to Prosecute Bush Administration Officials for War Crimes, January 18, 2009.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is receptive to the idea of prosecuting some Bush administration officials, while letting others who are accused of misdeeds leave office without prosecution, she told Chris Wallace in an interview on “FOX News Sunday.”

“I think you look at each item and see what is a violation of the law and do we even have a right to ignore it,” the California Democrat said. “And other things that are maybe time that is spent better looking to the future rather than to the past.”

Rep. John Conyers, chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, announced Friday he wants to set up a commission to look into whether the Bush administration broke the law by taking the nation to war against Iraq and instituting aggressive anti-terror initiatives. The Michigan Democrat called for an “independent criminal probe into whether any laws were broken in connection with these activities.”

President-elect Barack Obama has not closed off the possibility of prosecutions …

MSNBC News Call for Prosecution of Bush Administration as War Criminals  (Rachel Maddow and Jonathan Turley, 19 January 2009)

“Are we literally looking at a possibility,” Maddow asked, “where administration officials from this [previous] administration cannot travel abroad to the other 145 countries that have signed the torture treaty because they might get arrested?”

“Most certainly,” Turley replied. “The status of George Bush is not that different from Augusto Pinochet. They’ve both been accused of running a torture program. And outside this country, there’s not this ambiguity about what to do with a war crime. … Most people abroad are going to view you not as former President George Bush, they’re going to view you as a current war criminal.”

“And they’re going to view us as an outlaw regime for not arresting him on our own soil,” Maddow remarked.

“I think so, unfortunately,” Turley agreed. “A lot’s at stake.”

9/11 Families Outraged by Obama Call to Suspend Guantanamo War Crimes Trials

Families of victims of terrorist attacks say they are outraged by President Obama’s call to halt the trials of detainees at Guantanamo Bay. Family members of people killed on September 11, 2001, and in other terror attacks say they are outraged by President Obama’s draft order calling for the suspension of war crimes trials of prisoners being held at Guantanamo Bay.

Murtha Says He Welcomes Guantanamo Prisoners in His Pennsylvania District

Rep. Jack Murtha volunteers to house prisoners from Guantanamo Bay in his Pennsylvania district, as President Obama prepares to order the shut-down of the facility.

Rep. Jack Murtha, D-Pa., says he’d be willing to house prisoners from Guantanamo Bay in his congressional district if President Obama makes good on a plan to close the U.S. prison there.

As one of his first acts in office, the president circulated a draft Wednesday that would shut down Guantanamo Bay within a year.

Murtha only has a minimum security prison in his district. But he says he’d have no reservations about holding detainees there in a maximum security prison.

“Sure, I’d take ’em,” said Murtha, an outspoken critic of the Iraq war. “They’re no more dangerous in my district than in Guantanamo.”

Murtha added that there was “no reason not to put ’em in prisons in the United States and handle them the way they would handle any other prisoners.”


When “Pigs Have Wings” Environmentalism

The National Mall, Washington DC, TRASHED, after the Inauguration of Barack Obama. The photograph was taken on January 20, 2009 at 12.53pm EST.

“The time has come,” Obama said,
“To set aside childish things:”

Of shoes–and ships–and sealing-wax–
Of cabbages–and kings–
And wonder why America’s Mall is trashed–
And whether pigs have wings.

America’s Mall Trashed

January 21, 2009

The time has come,” Obama said “to set aside childish things.

Did anyone listen? Look how the Obama children desecrated our National Mall. They were too lazy to carry their trash to the nearest trash bin, so they threw their drink cups on the nation’s hallowed grounds for someone else to pick up. Obama’s supporters disrespected their own President and their own Nation’s grounds. What a travesty. What a day full of hollow rhetoric and promises. What a disappointment. But nothing more can be expected of Obama’s immature supporters. Obama knows them well and that is why he begged them to set aside their childishness. But they did not, nor will they listen to their Obama. They see him not as a national leader, but as an “American Idol.” They live only to idolize their Obama as the rock star that he is. They live to chant “O-BAM-A, O-BAM-A,” as they ignore his pleas to be their leader.

They Came; They Saw; They Trashed Our Mall!They were Obama’s supporters.

They Came; They Saw; But  … THEY did NOT listen to their new President, for he said:

Starting today, we must pick ourselves up, dust ourselves off, and begin again the work of remaking America.

“For everywhere we look, there is work to be done. The state of the economy calls for action, bold and swift, and we will act – not only to create new jobs, but to lay a new foundation for growth.

“We will build the roads and bridges, the electric grids and digital lines that feed our commerce and bind us together. We will restore science to its rightful place, and wield technology’s wonders to raise health care’s quality and lower its cost. We will harness the sun and the winds and the soil to fuel our cars and run our factories. And we will transform our schools and colleges and universities to meet the demands of a new age. All this we can do. And all this we will do.”

Oh Yeah?? You “children” of the Obama Nation are going to “harness the sun and the winds” and more, but you cannot stoop to pick up your own rubbish? Like, when pigs have wings, “yes you can.”

“The time has come,” Obama said,
“To set aside childish things:”

Of shoes–and ships–and sealing-wax–
Of cabbages–and kings–
And wonder why America’s Mall is trashed–
And whether pigs have wings.
