"We have piped unto you, and ye have not danced"
Its not that I take my politics too seriously, I take life very seriously, and "The Boss" bossed around too many voters to Gobama. No entertainer worked harder to elect a man, though I do like some of his personality, thoroughly unqualified to take on the job of Commander In-Chief and sundry other duties which are way above his pay grade. I actually blame the electorate who voted for the Democrats in Congress and President, more than the officials themselves.
Rose of Quinn and Rose fame (their Stream and XM radio broadcasts are conservative, addictive, and well worth a listen) claims that she will not do business with anyone who voted for Obama. Same here.
At one time, I could separate the politics of Sean Penn, George Clooney, John Cougar Mellencamp, Jessica Alba et al., from their unique talents and abilities, but now, looking at what is at stake, I am boycotting these people's
entertainment, and avoiding them like the Olbermann Plague which has epidemically infected the brains of so many victims.
Also on the hall of shame list are Garth Brooks, Beyonce, Bono, Sheryl Crow, Mary J Blige, Usher, Herbie Hancock, Shakira, James Taylor, and Stevie Wonder- who perfomed at the infamous Obama-Palooza.May they be Dixi-Chicked for life. I may even jump off an elevator if I hear their music as I enter. Notice to Wallmart: Don't be playing their muzak in the background, as I will leave and upgrade my shopping to Target.
I have not watched Rachel Madoff (even if she wore something frilly), Katie Couric, Bill Maher, Mike Wallace, Bryan Williams, Keith Olbermann, CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC, MSLSD (thanks, Mark Levin), or any of the other L-O-S-E-R news programs for more than five minutes since they started their Obama love affair.
As a disabled Vietnam veteran, I have been especially aggravated by Springsteen's singing overtime to defeat the United State's effort in Iraq.
I now sing a little ditty dedicated to Bruce which is based on his song Born To Run.
Baby, We Were Born To Cut And Run - Bruce Sprungspleen
I'm glad I'm not sweatin' and bleedin' in the streets of Baghdad - I am too clean a machine.
I evaded Vietnam like my friend Bill Clinton - I had to sing and make the girls scream.
No jeeps to drive, no tanks to ride in a hostile warring place.
I likes my cozy Asbury Park - let others take my place.
Its so much safer on E - Street and Greenwich has the poets.
I could imitate Bobby Dylan like Melencamp but many folks just didn't know it.
The way to protect America is with the guitar and not the gun,
'Cause, tramps like us, baby we were born to cut and run.
[The words don't exactly fit the music, but I'm singing it anyway]

Yeah Sure, And We Cannot Be Certain Of Nancy Pelosi's Feelings On Infanticide, Either
Glenn Mccoy's Original Cartoon Here
O'Bama is storm-trooping his way into the Presidency, treading on all that is holy, especially his disdain for the birth of babies, which is a 'punishment' as opposed to "Behold, children are a heritage from the LORD, the fruit of the womb is a reward" (Psalm 127:3)
Ohio is the slowest growing state, population wise, and we are suffering for it. We cannot even entice illegals because of the cold weather and high taxes. We need children. Japanese businesses are giving time off and other incentives to encourage the building of families as opposed to Planned Parenthood's destruction of families. Obama is not only increasing Planned Parenthood's budget for American infanticide, but he is sharing his HOPEless policy with foreign countries - again, as Democrats are known to enjoy.
That Bad Catholic, Nancy Pelosi, looks at abortion as a money saving issue. I would like to tell Nancy that a billion abortions would not save California from its financial crisis. What does it take to get excommunicated from the Catholic Church nowadays? What has Ted Kennedy paid to avoid excommunication? A soul, perhaps?
Twenty-five percent of Evangelicals, who identify themselves as "born again," voted for Obama, so their view on abortion is no longer a mystery. Evangelicals should be equally embarrassed by electing Ted Haggard as the President of the National Association Of Evangelicals. More on Ted Haggard: Not again! Ted Haggard stars in another Pelosi film AND another sex scandal. May God help them all, anyway.
If Nancy is concerned about the cost to the state for aiding children not supported by a father legally married to a woman, then just stop supporting the unmarried girls who give birth to bastards - which is the word that could not be used today, because it would be insensitive and, perhaps, might shame the tramps who have all the babies out of wedlock. Democrats, who have loathed the necessity of legitimate marriages in society, are now seeing their government budgets being bit in the rear because of their policies which promote promiscuity. In Ohio the Democrat governor recently killed the promotion of abstinence teaching in public schools. Chlamydia and syph are at epidemic levels. However, even bastards deserve to live. One ancient document even describes such women as whores. Not to worry, feminists, there are plenty of whoremongers contributing to the problem.
One study "proves" that with an increase in abortion, crime falls. How about if we just kill off the demographic that commits the most serious crimes - ages 25 to 34?

"IF CHENEY BECOMES PRESIDENT I'LL KILL MYSELF" HELEN THOMAS TO TIM RUSSERT
Some of Helen Thomas's most infamous quotes:
"This is the worst president ever," she told the Torrance, Calif., Daily Breeze . . . "she comes completely out of the closet in her columns, ripping "Bush's headlong drive into war, his favor-the-rich economic policy and his campaign to put right-wing ideologues on the Supreme Court." . . As the child of Lebanese immigrants, Thomas knows exactly which religious button she's pushing when she repeatedly condemns Bush's plans for war on Iraq as a "crusade." Slate
"Here's a bizarre Bushism. In one of his strangest statements as president, Bush said that Iraq's "not having weapons of mass destruction was a significant disappointment." HT
"To this day, Bush has not given a credible explanation for his war that also has killed tens of thousands of Iraqis." HT
"Bush told the news conference: "Israel has a right to defend itself." He did not say the Palestinians have a right to defend themselves. He also said the Gazans have to stop smuggling arms. But he said nothing about the tons of arms we have supplied Israel." HT
"As for the global economic meltdown, the president admitted he had to abandon his free-market principles and approve of massive government intervention in the economy. He said this switcheroo was required in order to save the free market system. The logic evoked the Vietnam era when we had to destroy a village in order to save it." HT
"The strange twist here is that both Bush and Cheney found ways to skip the draft during the Vietnam era, although they were eligible and in good health."HT
"Heading back home to Texas, Bush said he was "getting off the stage," adding he had had "my time in the klieg lights." Gone but not forgotten, he plans to write a book and said he will be "opining" at times. I'm waiting with bated breath." HT
"The Israelis will never find a better friend than President George W. Bush, who has blocked any early call by the United Nations for a ceasefire in Gaza.In doing so, Bush has enabled the Israelis' brutal land, sea and air offensive against the Palestinians, mostly with American-supplied weaponry." HT
"We have great expectations of the nation's first black president in American history. Right now he seems to be moving toward the comfortable center even when bold moves and compassion are required." HT
"Bush Again Breaks The Wall Between Church And State. Is there anything more that the administration can do to ignore the spirit of the U.S. Constitution before President George W. Bush leaves office? . . . It specifically applies to a $1.5 million grant to World Vision for salaries for staff members on a program that helps at-risk youths avoid joining gangs." HT
"Bush Turns To Government By Veto" HT
"McCain's Running-Mate Pick Reflects Poorly On Him" HT
"Bush Plans To Leave A Lot Of Unfinished Business" HT
"War Without End" HT

Robert Reich, January 2009: "If construction jobs go mainly to white males who already dominate the construction trades, many people who need jobs the most -- women, minorities, and the poor and long-term unemployed -- will be shut out."
Rev. Joe Lowery, Presidential Inauguration 2009: "When black will not be asked to get back, when brown can stick around, when yellow will be mellow, when the red man can get ahead, man, and when white will embrace what is right."
I must give credit to Dr. Martin Luther King for some of his activism which alleviated much of the angst, bias and lynchings suffered by blacks though the centuries. King's legacy should also include his sellout to the Left, which helped to separate African Americans from prosperity, a decent education, legitimate births, morality, and their Christian heritage. Don't call me a racist, yet. The Left has done the same thing for, at least, half of white Americans who vote Democrat.
Since King, however, was a lover rather than a fighter, I will remember him somewhat for his adulteries while posing as a Christian minister, as well as his "stealing the hearts" of patriotic Americans who wanted to win the Vietnam War where I served.
MLK's 1967 "Beyond Vietnam" sermon compared the U.S. effort in Vietnam with Castro's, Mao's, and Ho Chi's communism. No wonder that his progeny, Obama, is such a promoter of a large communal-style government.
King aligned himself with the selfish left which is usually only concerned for its own self preservation over the needs of fellow man, domestic and abroad. MLK opposed the African-American separatism encouraged by Malcolm X, and he seemingly denounced distinctions made by employers on account of racial bias. Unfortunately, it appears that African Americans have established to themselves a culture far separated from constitutional, traditional American values as has their liberal white blood brothers who bonded with black America - through Martin Luther King. IOW, MLK was one of the first Repubicans (Mark Levin's spelling) to pull a John McCain and sidle up with the socialist Democrats.
Racial quotas and other government favoritism has all but killed Martin Luther King's dream. For instance:Large Democratic cities have been under lawsuit attack for years because, "African Americans who cannot pass firefighter civil service tests should be given the civil service job notwithstanding that they could not pass various tests." The reasoning goes that even though the tests cannot be proven to be prejudicial against minorities, they must still be given the job, anyway, in order to satisfy civil rights and affirmative action goals/quotas. Large Democratic cities like Akron and Cleveland, etc., which are more likely to find Democrat "OJ" juries, almost guarantee a settlement in favor of "the little guy" over the "Man" ie., a private company or city government.
The "boosting" of unqualifed minorities (including women) also applies to favoritism in private employment where a business has a government contract, The same goes for hiring practices in academics, and all government jobs. The loss to the Gross Domestic Product because of the hiring of less proficient employees must be in the trillions of dollars, although it is hard to find an academic or government researcher to confirm this - since such research is, of course, verboten.
In the below reports of minorities winning lawsuits on account of "bias testing," examples of the bias are never published. One lawyer can easily persuade a Democrat jury without using solid evidence.
Cleveland Ohio - "More than two dozen African American firefighters filed a lawsuit against the city claiming a promotion test was unfair to their race and was not linked to job performance. The city has agreed to promote 15 black firefighters and pay a $650,000 settlement." (Mar-15-06) [BEACON JOURNAL]
Akron Ohio - Plain Dealer - "A federal jury awarded the 23 firefighters a total of $1.9 million Tuesday, finding that the exams developed by EB Jacobs were biased against white candidates for captain and black candidates for lieutenant. In both instances, the exams discriminated against officers over 40. Because of deficiencies, they contend, blacks were over-promoted to captain and under-promoted to lieutenant [?????????]. The lieutenant test also was skewed in favor of firefighters under age 40, according to the civil lawsuit filed in 2006."
New Haven, CT - Adversity.Net, Tim Fay - "New Haven paid $100,000 to a high stakes diversity testing firm, IO Solutions, Inc. of Illinois, to design the exams to be completely free of any racial bias. This is a necessary step these days in order to avoid charges of disparate impact upon protected minority groups -- and New Haven does have a large population of protected minority groups.
IO Solutions, Inc. is one of a few dozen firms which specializes in this kind of politically correct test design, and they are very good at it. According to court filings, IO Solutions did everything right in designing the New Haven fire department's promotional exams to be completely race-neutral, i.e., to not have a disparate impact upon selected, preferred skin colors.
Yet, when the New Haven FD administered the race-neutral tests in November and December of 2003, white firefighters scored so much higher than their black and brown counterparts that very few preferred minorities would have been promoted to the seven open Captain vacancies, nor to the eight open Lieutenant vacancies, if the exam scores were used. New Haven's city charter requires that they follow a "rule of three" which requires that each open promotional position be filled from among the top three scorers on the exams.
If the "rule of three" were strictly applied to the 2003 promotional exams, it would have resulted in all of the open Captain and Lieutenant positions being filled by the best-qualified, highest scoring candidates.
Unfortunately the best-qualified, highest scoring candidates turned out to be mostly white.
The City Fathers and Mothers of New Haven reacted quickly to this politically unacceptable turn of events. They simply refused to certify the results of their fire department's race-neutral exams, thus effectively nullifying the results.
A reverse discrimination lawsuit was filed by the mostly white, highest-scoring firefighters who insisted that the race neutral exam scores should be used to promote them. Their lawsuit was thrown out by a liberal judge (a Clinton appointee), and the firefighters have filed an appeal which they stand a good chance of winning. More on that later.
The upshot is that as of the date of this posting (12-11-06) -- three years after the race-neutral exams were administered -- vacancies have been allowed to go unfilled and are temporarily occupied by firefighters in an 'acting' capacity. Some of the temporary 'acting' firefighters occupying these positions actually failed the Lieutenant and Captain exams, thereby endangering firefighters under their command and the public at large."
This must be the grand slam, trifecta, triple-double, alltime powerball winner of discrimination lawsuits if anyone cares to research it. Too much for me!
"A Los Angeles firefighter who said she was harassed at work because she is African-American, a woman and a lesbian received a $6.2 million jury award Tuesday in her discrimination case against the city. "
Following, is the unbelievable, and common story describing how the voracious, unequaled harassing by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission hounded a simple Akron businessman for not hiring black employees. The owner of West Point Market did everything humanly possible to seek and hire minority job applicants except shanghaiing them off streets. Minorities simply did not want to work at the business. The EEOC still had the unmitigated gall to charge the market with discrimination, thus starting a three year, very expensive court battle. "

Any man who is under 30, and is not a liberal, has no heart; and any man who is over 30, and is not a conservative, has no brains." Winston Churchill
Since Obama left the Rev Wright and his cultic influence, I believe he has had several "come to Jesus meetings," as well as a couple of come to Bush meetings.
According to Wikpedia:"Neoconservatism is a political philosophy that emerged in the United States. Its key distinction is in international affairs, where it espouses an interventionist approach that seeks to defend what neo-conservatives deem as national interests. In addition, unlike traditional conservatives, neoconservatives are comfortable with a minimally-bureaucratic welfare state; and, while generally supportive of free markets, they are willing to interfere for overriding social purposes."
President Obama's very illusive inaugural speech, which followed equally evasive campaign promises, hinted that even he does not want to upset the applecart of capitalism and free(er) enterprise. Despite all his talk of the "unfairness of the rich being rich," Obama knows that any attempt to destroy the rich, destroys the economy.
Obama has worked most of his life - at Harvard, and in Chicago wanting to damn the Man, but now that he has grown up, he has become the Man, and husband, and father which requires more responsibility than a town-crying street activist shouting for the "workers (and welfare recipients) of the world to unite."
Obama's cabinet picks are not all far left and neither are they middle road, but he is a quick study of policy and may not swallow all the green,pacifistic, anti free marketing, liberal spending, union groveling, educrat money hogging, medical industry killing, or terrorist appeasing which his friends on the left live for. The Democrat electorate may be worshipping a man who has seen the light i.e. the darkness of gigantuous government.
Many have seen Barack's promise-breaking as a flaw. If people change their mind, or repent, for the better, I think better of them. We will soon find out if Obama is still that young commie activist, or if he has graduated to recognizing the United States as a democratic republic where freedom of enterprise is not cobbled by an imposing central government.
As far as Obama's Christianity, he may be seen as being "very young in the Lord," even though I know a Baptist minister who is nearly certain that Barack is the antichrist (Rick Warren was the Man of Sin last year), and I remember over thirty years ago when Henry Kissinger was - for sure - Satan incarnate. Obama confesses to be a Christian, and unless he studies and understands Christ in the Word, he will lose whatever savor of salt he has.
Obama will not be getting his spiritual guidance from Rev. White or Jesse Jackson, who may stow wire nippers in his Bible. Rick Warren, mentored by the ever positive Rev. Shuller, is probably not the worse choice, but I suspect and hope that Obama will be seeking guidance as his idol Abraham Lincoln did, one on One.

As the economy tanks, expect the FedGov to devise even more creative (devious) ways to get the fiscally cautious and conservative Americans to loosen up and spend their way further into oblivion in order to "save the economy."
John Maynard Keynes economic theory of "spending your way out of debt," has become the Obama mantra for saving the United States from another Great Depression, although there are good arguments that support the idea that the Depression was lengthened for years because of excessive government spending, illogical taxation, and severe intrusions into the private sector. Keynes, an infamous homosexual on the down low, had no care for the future of his children, grandchildren or anyone else's progeny because he was only interested in the here and now, and not the future. So why not institute the quick fix of massive government spending to jump start economies, if it only causes future bankruptcy? IOW Kenyes had no mind for eternity or the next year.
The bailout bills have been coming at us fast and furious, a trillion dollars at a time. Every push for manufacturing money out of thin air has been called an emergency measure, but neither the stock market, the banks, or the public is buying it.
In fact, the American public is loathe to buy anything - at Christmas or anytime else. The government, however, is obsessed with getting the citizenry to spend, or else. Or else, the government will spend for us, and send us the bill later.
A couple of the latest examples devised to ignite people to spend is the most recent congressional proposal to outlaw used clothing sales - so that even the poorest of people would be forced to buy new, and the Cash for Klunkers program that would all but eliminate the used car and parts markets, thus forcing the populace to buy new cars.
The government's not-so-bright idea to force record amounts of debt "for the economy's sake" has never worked, unless you count World War II which actually saved the day for the first Democratic messiah, FDR.
I don't even think that Obama or the Democrats know how much they need a World War III to hoist America out of the fiscal jam they got us into.
Since it would be "their war," the mainstream media and the Dem Congress,would suddenly become the most pro war, patriotic hawks history has ever seen.
