For all these years we've been told it's "Osama," like he's part Irish. Now I've been seeing Fox News (and other news sources I'm sure) using "Usama." I've had a friend on Facebook ask me what the proper spelling is. Apparently it's both, so I devised a way to help people figure out which version should be used.
**UPDATE** Check out the companion to this post here.Add a comment
A tale of two victory laps...
When I learned of Osama's death I said he should R.I.H....some people thought the "h" was "hillbillies," others thought "Heather Locklear," which would really bend him out of shape after counting and recounting only 71 virgins.
Others yet thought it was Hervana, which is Nirvana for Buddhist chicks, which is what I read on Wikipedia after I posted it.
Steven Crowder knew what I was getting at.
A lot of people have admonished me for wishing Osama is in Hell. I want to clear the air. I don't wish he's there. I'm ASSUMING he is. I've made educated guesses in my life that haven't panned out, like when I thought even a socialist wouldn't try universal health care with the kind of deficits we have....ha...ha...ha...
I'm not the judge, I'm not a judge. I'm not even qualified to pick out what I'm going to wear to work much less which souls are "in" and which ones are "out." However, I think this is a guess that will probably hold water. Part of me wants to be wrong, because if non-Christian mass murderers don't go to Hell then I'm going to loosen up my life a bit and add jaywalking to my bucket list.
h/t IMAO for the videoAdd a comment
Frank J at IMAO has it right when he says we've really lost sight of the point of this whole freedom thing. President Obama doesn't waste anytime balancing out his victory over Osama bin Laden by bringing his "crappy president" meter back to 0 with his new proposal to tax on how much we drive.
"The power to tax is the power to destroy" is something people with a brain keep in mind every time the word comes up. That's why liberals love to play in that lion's den, they just don't get it.
Since I guess there is nothing off the table for the government to tax maybe we can put just more than our latest odometer reading on the table...
All the stuff we can tax is certainly not limited to the above, the sky is the limit, really. If you want to be honest about it this is really one of those Sputnik moments Obama told us about.Add a comment
Was finding Osama bin Laden child's play? Maybe the crack team of national security experts our government employs should ask some undergrad geography students...
College kids at UCLA put their beer bongs down long enough to guess with an almost 90% likelihood that Osama was hunkered down where he was found...and they did it TWO YEARS AGO!
In Obama's speech announcing they got him he said he received intelligence of his whereabouts months ago. So something doesn't smell right.
In fact something about all of this stinks, bad, like Michelle Obama's steamed cabbage for the kids bad.
Either the government knew where he was, but they didn't want to go busting down the door of
every the mansion standing in Abbottabad, Pakistan. Or they were two years behind a bunch of college kids who should have counter-terrorism jobs lined up for them the second they graduate.
Is it just me or did anyone else notice how everything turned into a big cluster *@*# the second the Seals passed the ball back to this administration?
Let's give him a funeral in accordance to
how he killed our people Muslim tradition
Don't release the pictures...release the pictures...what if people photoshop them....what if they tag their friends to it on Facebook, will people know it's not really them?
If we show the photo then that puts to rest a bunch of conspiracy theories, and how could we possibly keep count then?
Nobody can divulge the identities of who conducted the raid....ok....good.....wait, JOE DID WHAT?!?....
The military did a fantastic job of taking care of Osama.
Meanwhile, the government has been flawlessly protecting its reputation of incompetence.Add a comment
Frank J over at IMAO has been keeping score on who gets credit on the war on terror.
The current tally is Obama 2, Bush 4.
See why he "generously" gave Obama 2 points here.
So really that's like Obama scoring in his own goal, thrice. If it's true the real tally should be.
Obama , Bush 7.
Since, liberals fight terror like they're playing air hockey, the game would technically be over at this point, and they just got skunked.Add a comment
A friend on Facebook asked what was going through the mind of the Seal who killed Osama bin Laden. My response was:
The line from the song Kelly Clarkson sang when she won American Idol...
"I can't believe it's happening to me. Some people wait a lifetime for a moment like this."
Obviously this isn't what really what was going through his head...I don't think they're supposed to allow such wimpy songs into their brains.
However, it did get me wondering...before he died what was the last thing that went through bin Laden's head...other than the bullet...
10. Oh look, an E-vite to the ribbon cutting of the Ground Zero Mosque.
9. Seriously, if I ever accidentally allow my iPhone to "use my current location" I'm gonna blow my brains out.
8. I wish Biden was president, then my videos would only have to be two words, "meep meep!"
7. My dear wife I'm married to you, not my work. I would never let anything come between us.
6. Alright, more fan mail! I sure am glad Hollywood celebrities can keep a secret.
5. WTF...why did Facebook delete my "If I get 1 million fans I will legally change my name to Osama Sandiego" page?!?
4. Hey, can someone tell me why Biden just tweeted "toomorow is goin 2 b a big f**king deel?"
3. Let's see if I have any new followers on Twitter....when did the CIA start a profile?
2. I swear, seals are so freakin' cute! I hope I actually see one before I die.
1. I have to get ready, that call girl I found on Craigslist will be here any minute.Add a comment
Now that he has been handed an untimely resignation as CEO of al Qaeda whats next for this freshly minted free agent?
Who said second bananas couldn't have a second banana?
If you're not familiar with Jeff Dunham, and his character Achmed the Dead Terrorist, then you're in for a treat below...
I'm ok with the left gloating over this. Like everything else they do this will have a honeymoon period and then *poof* its gone.
Here's a comment left by one of my most persistent liberal trolls at this post today.
"conservatives" [sic] start wars. Progressives finish them!!!! ;-)
Digest that for a second, the war is now over?!? Barack Obama has ENDED the war against al Qaeda?
Lets take this even further...Democrats started the Korean war, and Eisenhower ended it. Democrats started Vietnam and Nixon ended it. Democrats started the Cold War, and Bush/Reagan ended it. On no level is this statement factual or correct.
Bloggers and commentators put up with kooks all the time, so it would be easy to write this moron off.
The problem is today on The View, Joy Behar, who I now realize poofs her hair as high as she does to hide the fact there is absolutley nothing in her head, thinks we should skip the next election, and she's only joining the chorus of liberal Johnny-come-lately's to the war hawk bandwagon that was built only a few hours ago.
Lets get something straight, liberals, when I go to the bathroom I remember to drop my pants first, that's about how much intelligence Barack Obama needed to authorize this operation.
That's right, AUTHORIZE. He didn't plan it, he didn't execute it, he didn't do anything to actually gather the intel needed to make sure it was even worth executing. He simply ok'd the hard work of others, which is to his credit, but IT ENDS THERE!
The United States military created a masterpiece of a fingerpainting at school and Obama hung it on his fridge. While that's a good thing, and we don't need to cancel any elections over it, this is a man who has turned our economy into a broken outhouse. He is steering our government's credit rating toward a cliff that bottoms out at Hell, and the only business benefiting from his presidency are golf ball manufacturers.
This is hardly the ace up his sleeve he'll need in any of the coming presidential debates that will shut down his GOP challenger...I mean, really now...
GOP guy: This president has recklessly piled a trillion dollar entitlement on top of our already trillion dollar deficits
Obama: Don't let that right-wing flabbajabba make you forget that my health care bill lead to the whereabouts and death of Osama bin Laden!
GOP guy: Um....is that Biden in a mask?.....Uh, why has your "stimulus" not reduced unemployment as promised?
Obama: Look at this picture of Osama with his eyeballs shot out and tell me the stimulus isn't working!
Even a broken clock is right twice a day, and Obama is slightly smarter than one of those. Having said that, I now don't want liberals to ever accuse me of never saying anything nice about their guy.

Remember, there is never a situation where "insert Biden joke here" wont work.Add a comment
I found this in my surfing for what happened with the demise of the most wanted man in history other than Hitler...
We have to give credit where it's due. Osama bin Laden was "had" on Obama's watch. YES, I know the it was the military's good work that got the SOB, but Obama is the commander-in-chief. He obviously had to know what was going on with this operation. So the animation isn't really all that out of line.
Nonetheless, I know this pushes some buttons with my conservative friends. I didn't create that animation, my DNA has a fail safe mechanism that would shut my body down before I could even conceive creating it.
That said, we definitely don't want to forget the coattails Obama rode into this victory for America. So I fixed it...

Well, BigFurHat over at iOwnTheWorld has a friendly reminder of the liberal perspective on that in a post he titled "Leftist Logic Dictates That Killing bin Laden Is Stupid and Dangerous"...
Trump stumpers take note, here's a headline today from CBS news.
Arizona Sen. John McCain on Sunday brushed off the idea that Donald Trump could be perceived as a "serious" Republican presidential contender, arguing that while the business magnate seemed to be "having a lot of fun," the GOP had "very serious" candidates in the field who would be focusing on more serious issues.

McCain knows exactly what he's talking about people...seriously...it takes one to know one.Add a comment
