People have been abuzz about the photo of Obama bowing to Chinese President Hu Jintao. I don't actually on that level at all. It looked to me more like a nod of acknowledgment...
But what was he acknowledging?
For the record, I don't think (yet...yet) that Obama is a communist, and I know the hammer and sickle is a Soviet thing...but I thought it would make a fun little graphic...so the literalistic people out there...CHILL OUT.
I do, however, think with a fair degree of certainty he is a closet socialistAdd a comment
Lou Pritchett is a retired executive for Proctor and Gamble. He wrote an open letter to Presdient Obama and submitted it to the New York Times and was summarily ignored. Proving why the newspapers are dying the letter was posted online and is believed to have received over 500,000 hits, to say nothing of its appearance on countless other websites.
The moral of the story is if you want news to get out there don't ask for it to go it in a newspaper.
The letter is authentic and Pritchett more than vouches for it.
As a convenience to you the reader I have provided a way you can look at the letter through "lenses" that best reflect your political point of view. To use the Democrat pair of glasses (coincidentally on the left) or the normal glasses (coincidentally on the right) all you have to do is click and the letter will present itself in it's proper context.
Dear President Obama:
You are the thirteenth President under whom I have lived and unlike any of the others, you truly scare me.
You scare me because after months of exposure, I know nothing about you.
You scare me because I do not know how you paid for your expensive Ivy League education and your upscale lifestyle and housing with no visible signs of support.
You scare me because you did not spend the formative years of youth growing up in America and culturally you are not an American.
You scare me because you have never run a company or met a payroll.
You scare me because you have never had military experience, thus don't understand it at its core.
You scare me because you lack humility and 'class', always blaming others.
You scare me because for over half your life you have aligned yourself with radical extremists who hate America and you refuse to publicly denounce these radicals who wish to see America fail..
You scare me because you are a cheerleader for the 'blame America' crowd and deliver this message abroad.
You scare me because you want to change America to a European style country where the government sector dominates instead of the private sector.
You scare me because you want to replace our health care system with a government controlled one.
You scare me because you prefer 'wind mills' to responsibly capitalizing on our own vast oil, coal and shale reserves.
You scare me because you want to kill the American capitalist goose that lays the golden egg which provides the highest standard of living in the world.
You scare me because you have begun to use 'extortion' tactics against certain banks and corporations.
You scare me because your own political party shrinks from challenging you on your wild and irresponsible spending proposals.
You scare me because you will not openly listen to, or even consider opposing points of view from intelligent people.
You scare me because you falsely believe that you are both omnipotent and omniscient. You scare me because the media gives you a free pass on everything you do.
You scare me because you demonize and want to silence the Limbaugh's, Hannitys, O'Reillys and Becks who offer opposing, conservative points of view.
You scare me because you prefer controlling over governing.
Finally, you scare me because if you serve a second term I will probably not feel safe in writing a similar letter in 8 years.
Last January I came up with a series of posts inspired by the self explanatory hashtag on Twitter (follow my tweets here) #3WordsLiberalsHate.
The idea is to come up with the 3 word phrases that liberals would hate to hear or say. I wanted to put them in a way that they could exist on their own, but also in the context of a larger story. So here's a new set for a new season:
Must Support Israel
Beat Iran back
No bowing allowed
Peace through strength
Backwards nuclear policy
ObamaCare's health deform
No new taxes
17 minute responses
Teleprompter needs vacation
Change looks hopeless
Tea Parties mobilize
Dems lose Congress
Obama's only term
President Mitt Romney
President Newt Gingrich
President Sarah Palin
President Sean Hannity
President Ronald McDonald
President "Anyone Else"
Oh yeah...three more words they may not like to hear...
GUAM CAN'T CAPSIZE!

Its the official game of the Minor League Foreign Policy Circuit. The rules are really simple...only you have to hold the cards like so AT ALL TIMES
As you place your bets you must never see your opponents hand and more important than anything else YOU MUST NEVER KNOW WHAT YOU'RE ACTUALLY DOING YOURSELFAdd a comment
We know he has placed restrictions to the nuclear option to almost never. So who is actually eligible to be nuked if they ever have the temerity to smack the Virginia Slim out of Barack's mouth?
Kim Jong Il's hair-do
Soviet Union (maybe)
Oh! here's something...
UPDATE: Apparently according to some readers my attempt at a clever pun of a headline for this post (Palin's Palm Pilot Should Reid (meaning "read"...haha, but not really) Into The Flattery of Imitation) didn't work too well, so it has been changed to something that "makes sense," post starts now:
Harry Reid is starting to make me think I've been channeling way too much energy into painting Biden as a gaffe factory
Its bad enough that Harry Reid views the Senate as a sort of open mic night at some smokey Vegas chuckle shack with only one patron busting out punchlines like Obama can hide his negro dialect, and ObamaCare opponents would fight for slavery, but now I'm starting to worry that he has run out of ideas for his own material. I mean really, the Palin hand joke...again?
What Reid should have remembered to write on that hand is that needed to tell that joke two months ago when it may have been funny to people who think toilet humor is for phD's.
How about this one Harry, can you fit the names of every person actually willing to vote for you on your hand?
And did you hear the woman that almost stepped on Reid's "joke"? She wants the Tea Partiers to "drop dead"...
Well lady, we're rubber and Reid is glue...whatever YOU say bounces off of us and sticks to HIS chances for reelection.
I swear, if the GOP doesn't take this seat....Add a comment
It looks like Obama's oratory skills need a tune up before he starts being known as President Mtrmuth.
Recently at a meeting where Obama was to force-feeding prime rib to a vegan a woman known as Doris questioned the him on the wisdom of piling on to the tax burden and informed him we are taxed too much already. What ensued was a 17 minute, 2500 word response.
The conclusion of the rant prompted a rousing. Nope, didn't forget to finish that sentence with "applause"...they had to wake up first.
Perhaps he was trying to be so boring that even Jesus would forget to rise for Easter yesterday. We know how much liberals hate competition.
Baseball season has started and maybe like a starting pitcher that has had enough Obama needs to bring in a relief teleprompter with a fresh take on his speeches. So meet Obama's new teleprompter.
As you can see this idea is something of a grassroots effort. Eat your heart out Tea Party.Add a comment
I was traveling and visiting family this weekend, so I was a bit indisposed. Now that the day is all but over I wanted to at least acknowledge what is the most important day of the year next to Christmas.
A big thanks to Lori Ziganto over at iOwnTheWorld.com for posting this first and inspiring me to share what is a beautiful rendition of arguably the most beautiful song (or at least one of them) ever created.
Happy Easter.Add a comment
