Pat-a-cake, pat-a-cake ...

I saw a defense attorney from Chicago on FOX tonight, saying that there is no such thing as an "enemy combatant" anymore. Her reason? Because Obama said that characterization is not to be used anymore in the U.S. So, the words don't exist? If you try to say them the words will fall off your tongue and evaporate into some kind of evil mist? Because you know, Obama said so.

The C.A.I.R. Communications Director was also on FOX tonight. And I could not care less what his name is. He was talking about profiling and how can you catch those Swedish grandma Muslim terrorists if all you're doing is looking for guys who look middle eastern? (insert rude noise here.) Well if we use profiling as our only tool, that would be stupid. If we used watch lists as our only tool, bad too. But if people paid attention when a young guy who is flying alone smacks down $3000.00 cash for a plane ticket (one way) and has no luggage to boot, that could be a tool we could use!

The point is - we need to use as many tools we have available to us and I am sorry if it hurts somebodies feelings. If I were profiled because people like me were running around doing bad things - I would be angry with those people who look like me! Not at the cops or security people who are trying to protect me and everyone who wants to get on an airplane!

Somebody ask Israel, would ya? They use profiling heavily, no bones about it. I'm sure they use many tools and it works quite well for them. We have to stop being sissies about offending people when it comes to safety! Did anyone do a breakdown of the people on that plane on Christmas? There were men and women, young and old, children, and if that guy hadn't started his underpants on fire and had actually blown up the plane - there were be some member of C.A.I.R. with his head held high that he kept us from profiling Muslims.

What do the people who have been trying to kill us using terror for the last 10 years or more have in common? They are Islamists. Muslims. Jihadists. And they hate us. They hate us because we are not of their religion and we breathe the air. Apparently that's all it takes. And they Want. Americans. To. Die.

If we want to protect ourselves we need to use every tool at our disposal. If that means my son (who has very black facial hair) gets pulled aside and patted down when he flies - SO BE IT!!!! Who the heck cares? It will make the person sitting next to him on the plane feel a bit better.

Our would-be Christmas bomber should not have gotten as far as we did but now - he should be treated as an enemy combatant, he is a soldier in a war declared against us many years ago. He does not deserve Miranda rights or a comfy cell and a well heeled lawyer.

I said it Mr Obama. Enemy combatant. Enemy combatant. What are you going to do about it? Just ridiculous.

Crowder says it all!

He really does. This is such a good example of failed government entitlements.

A perfect example

*
You know you're a Democrat if - you don't believe in Christ so you don't want anyone else to either.

It's Christmas for Goodness sake.

I understand the thing about division of church and state. But this man must be a miserable human being if all he does is go around looking for signs of Christianity in public buildings or on public land and trying to abolish it.

California Official Orders Removal of Christmas Angel After Complaint

Wednesday, December 23, 2009
FOX NEWS
By Joshua Rhett Miller

There's no place for angels atop Christmas trees, according to one California man who successfully lobbied for the removal of religious symbols at county buildings after spotting a yuletide decoration last week.

Stars and other religious emblems were ordered removed from Christmas trees in all government buildings in Sonoma County on Monday following a complaint by Irv Sutley, a disabled 65-year-old Marine veteran who said the symbols were "extremely offensive" and part of the "cult" of Christianity.
(Chris⋅ti⋅an⋅i⋅ty
  /ˌkrɪstʃiˈænɪti/Pronunciation [kris-chee-an-i-tee]

–noun, plural -ties.
1. the Christian religion, including the Catholic, Protestant, and Eastern Orthodox churches.
2. Christian beliefs or practices; Christian quality or character: Christianity mixed with pagan elements; the Christianity of Augustine's thought.
3. a particular Christian religious system: She followed fundamentalist Christianity.
4. the state of being a Christian.
5. Christendom.
6. conformity to the Christian religion or to its beliefs or practices.
That's funny. I don't see a number 7 saying "cult")


"I just don't believe government has the right to intrude on anyone and force them into sectarian behavior," Sutley told FoxNews.com. "I've opposed Buddhist statues, the star of David — anything of a religious nature." (But it's okay to force them into secular behavior apparently.)

Sutley said he filed the complaint with acting County Administrator Chris Thomas on Dec. 18 after noticing an angel atop a six-foot tree in the lobby of the county recorder's office. Sutley, a lifelong atheist and chairman of the county's Peace and Freedom Party, said he visited the office last week for his re-election bid next June. (Peace and Freedom Party? That name qualifies as 'ironic'.)

Sutley said the angel violated previous court rulings concerning holiday displays, including a 1989 U.S. Supreme Court ruling that found that government-sponsored Christmas trees decorated with religious symbols constitute an illegal endorsement of Christian doctrine.

Sutley said he was pleased with a subsequent e-mail sent by Thomas to managers of all 26 county departments instructing them to remove religious symbols like angels and stars from holiday displays.

Jim Toomey, a public information officer for Sonoma County, confirmed the removal.

"To avoid any controversy and to satisfy this gentleman's concerns, the ornaments were removed," said Toomey, adding that he knew of no prior complaints concerning the holiday display. (That's a great policy - offend many to please one.)

Sutley, of Santa Rosa, said he's pleased with Thomas' directive, but said his work might not yet be done. The veteran previously led successful efforts to stop prayers at government meetings in nearby cities and forced Rohnert Park to redesign its city emblem due to religious symbols.

He now intends to ask county officials to remove a steel cross near Ernie Smith Park in Sonoma that serves as a memorial to an accident victim. (Really? A memorial to an accident victim?)

"It was put up privately without a permit," Sutley said. "It shouldn't be there."


He looks like a happy guy, doesn't he?

Glenn Beck on Leno

*
I Tried to catch Glenn Beck on Jay Leno last week, but I only caught the cookie making part at the end. Another Black Conservative posted the video and remarked "Funny, I thought Glenn Beck was suppose to be evil incarnate..."

Even if you don't watch the whole video, pay attention to the audience's reaction. I think too many people have heard "right wing nut" and haven't bothered to listen to what Glenn and a lot of us are saying.


People are catching on.

Hell freezes over

*
And rightly so.

*

It's not just what's in the bill . . .

*
. . . it's the tactics used to move it through the Senate and the House. Threats, bribes and coercion. The man that swept into the White House with promises of hope and change is a liar, a bully, and no better than a thug on the streets of Chicago.

Angry? Yes. Very.

I am angry that all those people who voted this man into office could not or would not see through him. I am angry he has gotten this far with his un-American agenda.

I understand this healthcare bill is not a done deal yet but it is so very close. All Obama wants is power and control and a big write up in the history books. He does not care about me, my neighbors, or you. Because if he did - he wouldn't have continued to push this issue after the strength of the opposition from the American people was made known.

He didn't care.

The state of Nebraska will never, ever, have to pick up the tab for Medicaid in their state. Never. What kind of deal is that? It never should have been offered and Ben Nelson should be ashamed for accepting it.

The back room deals and force used to move this bill forward have been about the only thing transparent about the whole process. All involved are criminally negligent in representing their constituents. They are doing what THEY want to to do, not what WE want them to do, and they don't care who knows it.

We need to throw them all out and start over - for the people, by the people - as soon as we are able.

Going down the toilet

*
I have been busy. It's the Christmas season which brings it's own special kind of stress. There have been other issues to attend to and I have not had much time to blog. But also? I am disheartened. Obama gives himself a B+?

Everything going on in Washington right now is simply incomprehensible to me. Harry Reid and the White House are pressuring and bribing dems to support the healthcare bill. Obama called democrats to the White House today, he wants this bill passed because it's all about him. This is HIS chance to make history. Forget about all the promises about transparency and debates on C-Span and hell - forget a HUGE portion of the American people. People who will be footing the bill for this monstrosity. Because it's all about him.

He is closing Gitmo and those terrorist prisoners of war will be coming to the great state of Illinois. My state. Obama's state. It's enough to make me want to move.

The untruths, the flat out lies emanating from every corner of this administration and it's democrat majority in the house and senate are astounding! And it all boils down to one thing.

Redistribution of wealth.

I have worked my ass off for years being a single mom trying to keep my head above water and now when I have reached a place where I can sort of breathe every month instead of scrambling to decide which bill I can pay - I am going to be punished - for the greater good, of course.
*
There will always be an upper class, the wealthy. No matter what bills are passed or laws created - the rich will always be there because they can buy what they want be it healthcare or housing or status. But the middle class? People like me? We are the ones the money is going to be taken from. We are not going to be the ones to benefit from this government. I'm not asking for Washington to give me one damn thing. Unless you count asking them to just leave me the hell alone!

And the poor? They will still be poor. Except they will have even less incentive to NOT be poor with everything the government wants to give them. The more dependent you make someone - the more power you have over them. And when people are not encouraged to take care of themselves - initiative and a desire to succeed is killed. The poor - remain poor.

This healthcare bill is simply a huge leap into Socialism, giving a frightening amount of control to the government.

I won't stop fighting in any way I can. I won't stop speaking out but I am so disappointed that we have gotten to this place. And I am tired.

The plot thickens

NOBODY REMEMBERS OBAMA AT COLUMBIA

Looking for evidence of Obama's past, Fox News contacted 400 Columbia University students from the period when Obama claims to have been there, but none remembered him.

Wayne Allyn Root was, like Obama, a political science major at Columbia who also graduated in 1983. In 2008, Root says of Obama, "I don't know a single person at Columbia that knew him, and they all know me.

I don't have a classmate who ever knew Barack Obama at Columbia . Ever! Nobody recalls him. I'm not exaggerating, I'm not kidding." Root adds that he was also, like Obama, "Class of '83 political science, pre-law" and says, "You don't get more exact or closer than that. Never met him in my life, don't know anyone who ever met him.

At the class reunion, our 20th reunion five years ago, who was asked to be the speaker of the class? Me.

No one ever heard of Barack! And five years ago, nobody even knew who he was. The guy who writes the class notes, who's kind of the, as we say in New York, the macha who knows everybody, has yet to find a person, a human who ever met him. Is that not strange?

It's very strange." Obama's photograph does not appear in the school's yearbook and Obama consistently declines requests to talk about his years at Columbia, provide school records, or provide the name of any former classmates or friends while at Columbia.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wayne_Allyn_Root#column-one

NOTE: Root graduated as Valedictorian from his high school, Thornton-Donovan School , then graduated from Columbia University in 1983 as a Political
Science major (in the same class as President Barack Obama WAS SUPPOSED TO HAVE BEEN IN)

Things that make you go Hm-m-m .....
