No man should be allowed to be the President who does not understand hogs, or hasn’t been around a manure pile.” ~~Harry S. Truman (1884–1972), Kansas farmer and 33rd President of the United States, from a joke in 1948, at an Iowa plowmen’s competition.

Oh what would Harry have to say about a woman being allowed to be President, or even Vice President?

Obama’s Granny Attacked

September 11, 2008

While every Republican and his cousin is jumping to the defense of Governor Sarah Palin, a gun-slinging Alaskan Annie Oakley who needs no help defending herself from Democrat attacks, another female named Sarah is being attacked and no one cares except the BBC.

Poor Sarah Hussein Obama lives in daily fear, because she has already been the target of invaders at her home in a remote village in Kenya, only because she is the grandmother of presidential candidate Barack Obama. On Wednesday, four outlaws broke down the kitchen door of the 86-year-old woman. These are just people from around who think that Obama has been sending me a lot of money, she explained.

Candidate Barack Obama claims that he is in no way responsible for these attacks upon his grandmother, as he has NOT been sending her lots of money, as has been scurrilously reported. Obama’s claims seem to be true, as when the thieves found no money, they had to content themselves with removing the solar panels of Granny’s home as their only booty. Obama said that he is planning to demand Secret Service protection for his grandmother at her Kenyan village of Alego-Kogello,  which is but 37 miles from Kisumu, and also for the rest of his extended family in Kenya, Indonesia and Hawaii. 😉

Unlike as has happened with candidate Sarah Palin, so far, no one has charged that Obama is neglecting his family by running for president. After-all, Barack Obama is a man and Sarah Palin is woman.


A Woman Dies for Freedom

I’m standing up for the principle of democracy. I’m standing up for moderation. And I’m standing up for hope for all the people in Pakistan who today are poor and miserable and really quite desperate..” ~~ Benazir Bhutto, CNN Interview of 28 September 2007.

In 1775, Patrick Henry delared “Give me Liberty or Give me Death,” at Saint John’s Church in Richmond, Virginia. That declaration set the course for revolution and independence for Americans. It was the cry that has reverberated in the hearts of mankind ever since. Many freedom lovers around the world have met death in their quest for liberty for themselves and others.

Today it was the American educated woman freedom fighter, Benazir Bhutto, who was martyred in freedom’s name in her own native land of Pakistan. Today, it was a Muslim woman, Benazir Bhutto, murdered in a Muslim land, by her fellow male Muslims. BBC News.
