Huge Backlash Against Obama Elitist Comments.

If you haven't heard yet, Barack Obama made some comments before some mega rich donors last Sunday in San Francisco that has the internet in an uproar and many saying that his candidacy may be in trouble.

"You go into these small towns in Pennsylvania and, like a lot of small towns in the Midwest, the jobs have been gone now for 25 years and nothing's replaced them. And they fell through the Clinton administration, and the Bush administration, and each successive administration has said that somehow these communities are gonna regenerate and they have not. And it's not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy toward people who aren't like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations."

Many may have wondered if Obama held the same beliefs as his elitist wife who has made a career of telling ordinary Americans they are "mean" or stupid. We needn't wonder any longer.

In His Own Words...Ouch...

Is it just me or does the Senator seem to not like white folk?

Beer Taxes may increase in California.

Tar. Feathers.

We've had revolutions over less.

Diplomacy is not the Dr. Phil Show.

Dear Mr. President and Dear Mr. Would-Be President. This is not the Dr. Phil Show. There are lives at stake, those who have already perished and those who are in the crosshairs of Hamas attacks at this moment and a nation that dreadfully awaits Iran's acquisition of the means to fulfill its pledge to eliminate Israel. By talking to terrorists and their sponsors, the President of the United States elevates the status of murderers, lends credibility to their ideology of hate, and makes the world a more dangerous place.

Seven New Deadly Sins Suitably Updated.

We need a deadly sins update. Anyway, Pride, Sloth, and Gluttony are now self-esteem, relaxation, and having gourmet tastes. P.J. O’Rourke offers sins for new millennium.

1.  Celebrity. This is far and away the besetting sin of the 21st century. Note that the root of the word is "celebrate." What evil, pentagram-enclosed, goat-heinie-kissing ceremony are we celebrating with Kevin Federline?

2.  Communication. In former days just Adam and Eve ate of the fruit of the tree of knowledge, and only one time at that. Now everybody's a know-it-all 24/7 thanks to Google, Wikipedia, Facebook, YouTube, email, cell phones, text messages, and so on. A cherubim with a flaming sword is expelling us from the office cubicle of Eden, or would be if he could tear us away from the Internet. (And you, young man in the reading audience, take those ear buds out when your elders are addressing you!)

3.  Youth. Talk about worshiping false gods; why would anyone pray--or pay!--for youthfulness? The young are spotty, sweaty, chowder-headed, and woefully lacking in wisdom, experience, or control over anything, especially themselves. Yet we bear witness to the eternally babyish baby boom. Men in their sixties are on Harleys and snowboards and basketball courts, from which they will proceed to damnation by way of the emergency room. The women go to and fro in the earth, mutton dressed as lamb, with liposuction well-applied to tummy, butt, and brain. And they all come to Mass, when at all, in shorts, T-shirts, and shower flip-flops.

4.  Authenticity. Please do your best to be someone better than who you truly are. Deep down inside we're ravening beasts. This is the meaning of original sin. Everyone's authentic self is horrid. God's message to man has always been, "You can't really be good, but you can fake it. Really."

5.  Caring. This takes so much time and effort that it necessarily results in the opposite of doing something. And notice that when someone says, "I care about the war in Iraq," he almost always means, "I want to lose it." Also there's a bullying logic among those who care. I care more about diddledydum than you do. Therefore I'm a better person than you are. Because I'm a better person than you are, I have the right to order you around. And vote for Hillary on November 4th.

6.  Opinion. It's the reverse of fact. Listen to NPR or AM Talk Radio if you don't believe me, or, better yet, read the opinion page of the New York Times. (I'm talking about you, Paul Krugman.) Some people have facts, these can be proven. Some people have theories, these can be disproven. But people with opinions are mindless and have their minds made up about it. The 11th Commandment is, "Thou shalt not blog."

7.  To Spend More Time With the Family. Alas, I couldn't get this into a single descriptive term, but it might as well be all one word. And when people say it we know that they've been doing something at least as bad as the former governor of New Jersey, his wife, their chauffeur, and Eliot Spitzer in a hot tub together. "We need to move on," is a similar phrase but with the implication of, "And I won't quit doing it until I'm actually behind bars."

Berlusconi: Only 'retards' would vote for the Left.

Politeness prohibits me from agreeing with him.

SKYY Vodka has a little fun at Absolut's expense.

With Absoult fantasizing about handing half of the United States over to Mexico, SKYY decides to rally in support of the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo. I think I may have a new brand.

Finally! Bill Introduced Permitting Liberals to Pay More in Taxes!

A new bill just introduced -- The Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is Bill (seriously, that's the unofficial name) -- will help our despondent liberal friends pay that additional 10% tithe (or more) to the StateChurch that they've always wanted to pay but just didn't see what box to enter their bonus largesse into.


The Wonderous Womb

There was a time in my life when I wanted to be a nurse midwife. I have always loved the miracle of life and pregnancy. I have gone through it successfully three amazing times. I found this video and I hope you think it is as cool as I do.
