Yes we can! We can change. We have changed! “Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.” (It’s from the Bible, Proverbs 22:6.)
“Borking” & “High Tech Lynchings” have been put on hold just in case a Republican is ever again nominated. Today there is a “Sotomayor LOVE FEST” in Washington DC!
What a difference there is between the treatment of a Republican President’s Supreme Court nominee and that of a Democrat President. This current President, Barack Obama, voted every single court nominee that came before him as a Senator, as UNQUALIFED to serve! He even said that Chief Justice John Roberts should not serve on the court. Yet now, his nominee, Sonia Sotomayor must be treated with much more respect, for she is GOOD! Viva La Difference?

The Apology of a Real Misogynist and a Probable Sexual Pervert
I would never even contemplate a joke about your 14-year-old daughter getting knocked up by a 35-year-old athlete, as that would be rape of course. I was joking about your 18-year-old daughter getting knocked up, and that is okay as that is not rape, but just plain old promiscuous sex that all girls are wild for.
It’s okay America, because the Real Misogynist and Probable Sexual Pervert has a national television show on CBS and the following advertisers who obviously support his pernicious and bigoted views of women and children.
- The Olive Garden
- Mars M&M Candy
- Hellmann’s Mayonnaise
- On the Border Restaurants
- Earn My Degree
- True Credit by Trans Union

Why is David Letterman a “probable sexual pervert?”
Because any man who would make jokes about a fourteen-year-old girl or an eighteen-year-old girl getting “knocked-up” by a thirty-something athlete is just that — a pervert, in my opinion. The same goes for any man who would make jokes about young girls being prostitutes. It is not funny; it is unforgivable. But I guess if you are not a women, you just would not understand how hurtful are David Letterman’s jokes about Child Rape and his vulgar humiliations of women as “slutty” and “knocked up.”
Know any good woman-hating, or child rape jokes? Sell them online to David Letterman of CBS. He is paying $100 a pop. Go for it!
Forget Progressive Taxation! We Now Have Confiscatory Taxation to PUNISH!
Now “We the People” have turned our U.S. Tax code into a weapon to bludgeon those we dislike with egregious Confiscatory Taxes. Granted, that is not as evil as strangling those we dislike and their families with piano wire, as some outraged Americans have suggested. However, once this government’s revenge gets going strong, many will be wishing for “death by piano wire.” Those others may someday be you, yourself, when you finally do or say something your government does not like.
The United States Congress, in its villainous plan to fully implement their President’s “Dreams of His Father,” has gone far further than Barack Hussein Obama, Sr. ever dreamt. Obama wanted 100% taxation in order to “spread the wealth around.” The United States Congress today passed into law a bill to tax fellow Americans by 90% solely as revenge; soley to punish them. Why 90% and not 100%? That was merely a technicality, as Congress explained that the State and Local Taxes will take the other 10%, of course. The senior Obama, a Harvard-educated economist, wrote of his plans for Kenya:
“What is more important is to find means by which we can redistribute our economic gains to the benefit of all. This is the government’s obligation. The “means” he had in mind were confiscatory taxes on a scale that redefines the term “progressive taxation.”
“Theoretically, there is nothing that can stop the government from taxing 100% of income so long as the people get benefits from the government commensurate with their income which is taxed.”
“I do not see why the government cannot tax those who have more and syphon some of these revenues into savings which can be utilized in investment for future development.”
“Certainly there is no limit to taxation if the benefits derived from public services by society measure up to the cost in taxation which they have to pay. It is a fallacy to say that there is this limit, and it is a fallacy to rely mainly on individual free enterprise to get the savings.”
Of course, we have all known about President’s Obama’s “Dreams of His Father” and Obama’s plans to implement them, as he wrote all about his father in two books. That’s where we find the above quotations. What we did not know is how eager our elected representatives would be to help Obama begin implementing the new Plan of Taxation. If you are counting on Republicans to come to the rescue and save us, forget it. Over half the Republicans in Congress voted to use the Tax Code as a weapon.
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.
“Picture By: dunno source” is how my stolen photograph is attributed at the ICanHasCheezeburger website, one of the most popular sites on the Internet. At my Flickr photostream it is “© All rights reserved” to me.
My “Good Cat – Bad Cat” copyrighted photograph has been illegally uploaded to the I Can Has Cheezburger site, credited as “Picture By: dunno source.” As of today, 26 December 2008, fifty-nine (59) derivatives (Lolz) have been made of this photograph, totally without my permission.
My original photograph that I published on 5 August 2006 is here: Good Cat, Bad Cat by Edna Barney.
ICanHasCheezBurger is a very popular commercial website which exists to make revenue from its posted cat photographs. CNet has one explanation on the popularity of the website and its picture books (CNET 2008). Here is another of why this website is so popular
“I came to ICHC to see the free photos of cats since I’m illustrating a childrens book about a cat.” (Tempie’s Profile)
ICanHasCheezBurger is on Flickr, profiled at www.flickr.com/people/icanhascheezburger. Here is the commercial website’s cat group on Flickr: Flickr Can Has Cheezburger. Does anyone else know of any other “commercial” websites who are allowed to have groups on Flickr? I could not find any, other than ICANHASCHEEZBURGER.
UPDATE: Cheezburger Cats
I had visited the ICANHASCHEEZBURGER site only a couple times after learning that my “Good Cat, Bad Cat” copyrighted photography was there without my permission, when I spotted an Abyssinian cat I recognized from Flickr. It is a very popular photograph at Flickr and since I own an Abby cat, I recognized it immediately. ICANHASCHEEZBURGER credited it to “dunno source.” I doubted that the source of such a popular picture could be unknown.
At ICANHASCHEEZBURGER the cat poster was made into a template named “I Am Goddess,” contributed by Ozzy Kat and camcat. I found what appeared to be the original photograph at Flickr, “(c) All Rights Reserved,”named “Belle on Black 4.” After I contacted the Flickr photographer about his non-credited photograph at ICANHASCHEEZBURGER, I noticed that the site changed “dunno source” to his name. However, at their LOLcat Builder page, his picture is still credited as “Picture By: dunno source”and there are seventy-five (75 and counting) derivative images of it. I found that not one credited the Flickr photographer of such a popular ICANHASCHEEZBURGER template.
UPDATE: Cheezburger Cats
It would NOT have been a good thing. Why do I think that it was a blessing in disguise that John McCain and Sarah Palin lost at the polls on November 4th, 2008? This video is why:
The above video is just one example of what is happening in California and other Western States to people who went to the polls, voting their consciences, expecting to participate in American democracy. These American terrorists in the video demonstrating their “insane rage” are Democrats who lost at the ballot box. If you found it troubling to have the term “RACIST” hurled at you for voting Republican during the 2008 election, think of what would be happening now, if Republicans had won. You would need police protection, if you could find it, to walk on city streets. You would be closing down your businesses. You would be in a heap of hurt if John McCain had won. Democrats, as proved by this video and many other videos, would NEVER, ever have accepted that your vote was valid. You would have been a Messiah-killer forever, instead of just a poor pitiful and misguided Republican, as you are now.
As it is, Barack Obama is your President and 52% of America is jubilant. Those who believe in His message of Socialism and His Redistribution of wealth believe in Him, even though you do not nor do you accept Him as your Messiah. You and your side have lost, and Conservatives and Republicans have NO chance to ever regain the Presidency nor the Congress in your lifetime. After-all, Obama will be selecting future Supreme Court justices and the Congress will vote themselves two more Democrat Senators when Washington DC becomes a state.
Learn to be thankful for small favors. At least for the next four years you can probably walk the streets unmolested, unlike Californians. You can probably enjoy your family, and still go to church, unlike Mormons, Catholics and Evangelicals in the West. All of those things that you can still do, even with Barack Obama as your president, you must appreciate and be thankful for. You are now “the minority” of this country and that is the way it will be in America of 2009 and forward. We do not know what the future holds; we know only that it does not hold the America of the past that we have known and loved.
Conservatives, traditional Christians, capitalists, libertarians, classical liberals, federalists, republicans and big “R” Republicans are now all part of a minority. If you, as a minority of this new regime, refuse to go along, if you rebell, you will bleed.
There is something called Bumper Sticker Application at Facebook which I encountered only because it was advertised on the profile of a 13-year-old Facebook “friend” of mine. Browsing just two or three pages of Bumper Stickers I saw that many of them are inappropriate for public viewing.
How about referring to women with the “H” or “WH” word? Even worse, how about referring to your mother that way? How about all kinds of sexual innuendo, some even gross, and glorification of various sexual fantasies? How about vulgar language that is NOT allowed on public radio and TV, such as the “F” word and other four letter words? How about Bumper Stickers that think it hilarious to describe various private bodily functions? And of course, a banner encouraging Pot Smoking, is just what our young people need to see.
Since Facebook thinks that this is appropriate for 13-year-olds, I think I will go back and see what other gems I may uncover there before I get grossed out again. I think parents need to be warned about Facebook.
Of course, Bumper Stickers has its own warning about inappropriateness:
What can I do about offensive stickers? If you see an offensive sticker, click on the image. On the next page, click on the “flag this sticker as offensive” link. We will review and take down stickers that are flagged as offensive by enough people.
Jolly Good! The Bumper Stickers I mentioned above, have obviously ALL passed the “Facebook Seal of Approval” as not enough people have flagged them as “offensive.” That certainly reveals much about Facebook. And, since 7 million Facebook users actively use and love these Bumper Stickers, it says much about them and our society.
