Still alive and yet I can't help but wonder why when we are facing a healthcare disaster I mean reform, that the media is consumed with crucifying Tiger Woods.

Stevie Wonder: Obama's Approval Down Because ‘People Are Afraid of Change'

Well it seems more and more Americans are less happy with President Obama than before. His approval numbers continue to tank and this has the left scrambling to find excuses for it. The latest highly trained political scientist to chime in is Stevie Wonder. I was being sarcastic about the highly trained thing.

I really admire Wonder as an artist. His music has been an inspiration to me at many different points of my life. Many of his songs have made my short list of favorite tunes. BUT I do not believe his status as mega music star gives him any more insight on U.S. politics than anyone else. So why is everybody hanging on his every word about how Obama's declining approval rating is because people are afraid of change?
“I think as far as his [Obama’s] popularity decreasing, I think it’s because people are so used to, they’re so afraid of change and I think you have politics playing too much a role in what should be a natural, given that health care in this country needs to be improved and that’s just a reality,” Wonder told in an exclusive interview.
And all this time I thought the reason President Obama was elected was because people were embracing change. How do you install a President based on change and then disapprove of him for the same reason? Maybe people disapprove of him in ever increasing numbers because his flawed vision of healthcare reform is just a bad idea? I guess Mr. Obama isn't the sunshine of everybody's life.

I Have to Say Something

I have lost all respect for the Nobel organization. Oh it is not just the shocking news that President Obama won the Peace Prize for, well I am not sure why he won it. We are still in Iraq and Afghanistan and in larger numbers than the Bush days. So I am not exactly sure of what peace they are talking about.

No it is not Obama alone. Let's review. In 2002 they gave Jimmy "The Worse President Evah" Carter a Peace Prize. Granted he does have a post presidential history of humanitarian work, but face it, the prize was a jab at President Bush's policies. As was the 2007 Peace Prize awarded to Al "Global Warming Czar" Gore. Come on. A PEACE prize for global warming? What an affront to everyone who was working towards peace to have the award given to Gore. Was it for his brilliant scientific proofs of the dangers of Global Warming? Nope. Czech President Vaclav Klaus, another climate change skeptic, said the relationship between Mr Gore’s work and world peace was “unclear and indistinct”. But they gave it to him anyway. Remember President Bush resisted the whole Global Warming scam and wouldn't sign the Kyoto accords.

So now our newest Democrat Nobel Laureate is President Obama. An interesting soundbite I heard while surfing the news channels said that the committee would have given the award to anyone who wasn't G. W. Bush. Why do liberals hate that man so?

Obama Does It Again

He opened his big mouth while overseas and spouted a major lie...
If you actually took the number of Muslims Americans, we'd be one of the largest Muslim countries in the world.
World News Examiner: Obama: US 'one of the largest Muslim countries in the world'

The article immediately pointed out that even if we had six million Muslims we don't come close to being "one of the worlds largest Muslim Nations".
Having six million Muslims would still put America behind Indonesia, Pakistan, India, Bangladesh, Turkey, Egypt, Iran, Nigeria, China, Ethiopia, Algeria, Morocco, Afghanistan, Sudan, Iraq, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Uzbekistan, Yemen, Tanzania, Syria, Malaysia, Niger, Senegal, Ghana, Tunisia, Somalia, Guinea, Kenya, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Burkina Faso and Tajikistan in number of Muslims, which would make the US the 34th largest Muslim country in the world.

I will be interested to know how the Obama machine plans to spin Barack Obama's gaff. I think it is more bowing-ring kissing-sucking up by the President as he prepares to be awe struck in the Middle East by Islamic leaders again.

Whoa! Where Is Time Going?

First off I am not dead. Secondly I do plan to post and change my template and get back on track. The reason for my extended absence;
  1. World of Warcraft
  2. The general suckiness of the actions of our Executive Officer Barack "I'm Not Muslim Wait Now I Am" Obama
  3. World of Warcraft
  4. The continual state of flux of my home situation
  5. World of Warcraft
  6. Minor depression over the dismal economy
  7. World of Warcraft

World of Warcraft
Did I mention I am playing World of Warcraft. My primary Toon is a 36th level Paladin named DaneBramage. I believe several people on the Muradin server have made the connection hence the WoW comment spam that I have deleted. My first 30 days are up tomorrow. I think I will buy at least another 30 days. Beyond that my short attention span for games kicks in and I should be pretty bored with it. Meanwhile check out my blogroll. I'll be adding my friend Scott's blog once he gets past the introductory post. You know Scott. The photo of the zipper tattoo on the back of his neck has been the second biggest draw to my blog next ot Star Wars Femme. I know, I know, I should talk about people needing to post to their blogs.

See you soon

Will the Hating Ever Stop?

President Obama is on his way to Prague this week to meet with EU members. The bright and informed citizens of Prague have decided to protest the building of a U.S. missile base there by tossing effigies in the Vltava River of George Bush and Condolezza Rice?


Well didn't anyone tell them that GW was no longer in office? Or weren't they informed that Hillary is the SOS and Condi has returned to private life?

Of course Reuters is all over it with many pictures of the exploits of the dummies throughout the day. Because dummies of GW Bush and Condolezza Rice are so newsworthy.

One would think that if you were to protest the actions of a nation like the U.S. you would direct your ire towards the sitting heads of power. What message are they trying to send? "Tell George and Condi we don't want their stinkin' missile base in the Czech Republic!" Sure thing Jakub. I'll pass that message right along.

How the World Works

This guy is great. Give a look.

When America Needs to be Kicking Butt, Obama Kisses It


We've come a long way baby! We have the first African American President. And he bows to Islam. That is so wrong so many levels. First off I believe that as leader of the free world he should not have bowed to a dictator. Secondly there is no way a man who considers himself a Christian should have bowed to an Islamic leader.

I am sure many people, especially on the left, will try to play this down siting all kinds of diplomatic meeting protocols and past Presidential behaviors. But the bottom line is President Obama is suppose to represent America. He claims to be Christian so he is suppose to represent Christ too. In this instance he does neither.

Happy Blogoversary To Me

Well according to the widget I put in the sidebar, today marks the 4th anniversary of my starting this blog. Oddly enough I have not posted anything in over a month and lately I find it increasingly difficult to get motivated to post.

Don't get me wrong. I have had many ideas about Obama's winning the election, his handling of the economy to date, and his handling of his critics. I find that I have had some pretty strong opinions about racism in light of the "police shooting monkey" cartoon and the "chimps" book in the midst of the Obama book display. The whole Rush Limbaugh thing But I just can't seem to get myself motivated to put those thoughts to paper, (or computer.) I feel like why should I write when nothing will matter? The liberals are dismantling conservative reforms and really sticking it to the working class. They make no bones about turning America into a socialist cesspool. It makes wanting to write very difficult. Maybe I have a little bit of depression going on. Also one of my favorite things have gone by the wayside. The Thursday Thirteen folded up. I really miss them.

So what am I going to do about it? Well I guess I will have to force myself to post. And I am thinking about another format change. My current blog template is an old throwback to Blogger 1.0. I left it that way so the comics section would display correctly. Well it's been awhile and no one has mentioned the comics. As browsers advance, the little trick that allows the comics to display is failing. So I am going to upgrade my blogger template which means most of the comics go away. You will still see Day by Day and Dilbert.

Let's keep this up for another year and see how I feel then! Thanks for visiting!

Interesting Quote

The truth is, however, that if you go to South America, you will find a huge number of conversions to Protestant Christianity. If you go to Korea, you will find Christian churches with 100,000 members. If you go to China, you will find 100 million Christians. And if you go to Africa, you'll find that countries whose populations were only five percent Christian 100 years ago are now 50 percent Christian. These trends have not gone unnoticed by historians, who are startled by them and have attempted to explain them away, and they are the empirical basis for my claim that God is doing very well in this world. What's important to understand is that the New Atheism is not a triumphant cry of success, but rather a bitter reaction to the success of religion. -Dinesh D'Souza

Historians Rank George W. Bush Among Worst Presidents

Wow. Roughly 32 days into the Obama era and "historians" have labeled Bush one of the worse 10 Presidents of all time.
The worst presidents, according to the survey, were James Buchanan at 42, Andrew Johnson at 41, Franklin Pierce, William Henry Harrison, Warren Harding, Millard Fillmore, George W. Bush, John Tyler, Herbert Hoover, and Rutherford B. Hayes.

How can that be? I mean they ranked him lower than nut case farmer Jimmy Carter. That fact alone tells me there is political agenda behind the ranking more than an objective look at the presidencies of 42 men.
"How we rank our presidents is, to a large extent, influenced by our own times," Medford said in a news release. "Today's concerns shape our views of the past, be it in the area of foreign policy, managing the economy, or human rights. . . . Lincoln continues to rank at the top in all categories because he is perceived to embody the nation's core values: integrity, moderation, persistence in the pursuit of honorable goals, respect for human rights, compassion; those who collect near the bottom are perceived as having failed to uphold those values."

So if these scholarly historians perceive Bush to be a bad president in the context of today's concerns, they feel justified in putting him in the bottom 10.

U.S. News and World Report mentions another list of 13 Worst Presidents. GWB didn't make it but Nixon did (tied at 9th with Hoover)and Carter was #11. The bold names above made both lists.

Regardless of the current list I think George W. Bush was a good president. I certainly don't think he was one of the 10 or even 20 worst. Time will adjust his position, like it has for Ronald Reagan who has just now cracked the "Top 10 Best Presidents" of these same liberal historians. It takes time for them to figure out what exactly a good president is.

Quote about the Stimulus Package

In an open letter disseminated by the Cato Institute, two hundred economists stated, "More government spending by Hoover and Roosevelt did not pull the United States economy out of the Great Depression in the 1930s. More government spending did not solve Japan's 'lost decade' in the 1990s. As such, it is a triumph of hope over experience to believe that more government spending will help the U.S. today."

Black Jesus Has Come

I had often joked about how moonbats had elevated Barack Obama to the status of god. Well the Dutch have really gone the extra mile. A Dutch newspaper actually depicts Obama as God.

But the picture in free newspaper De Pers probably best sums up the mammoth expectations of the world on President Obama's shoulders. It prints a rendition of Raphael's The Transfiguration with the first black US president depicted as Jesus, flanked by two prophets, the clouds looming behind him lit up. The headline reads "Black Jesus has come".

True feelings or paper selling hype? I thought the latter until I read a little farther.
The Dutch Crown Prince Willem-Alexander told a press conference in Dubai that the inauguration of Barack Obama was "probably more important than the release of Nelson Mandela".

The election of the United States' first black President was monumental but I seriously doubt President Obama faced the persecution Nelson Mandela did. I get the feeling that there are a great many people whose grasp of reality is tenuous at best.

In closing I would like to treat everyone to this video;Hope and Change Fulfilled from the good folks at The Nose On Your Face

Obama Love Fest Marred by Violence


Yesterday was the historic inauguration of Barack Hussein Obama as the 44th President of the United States of America. Liberals celebrated the Great Obama Love Fest worldwide.
In Sweden, African-American singer Cyndee Peters was hosting a show named "A Gala for Obama," featuring dozens of Swedish soul, jazz, hip-hop, gospel, folk and blues artists.

"Obama fever is all over the whole world," said Peters, 62, who grew up in North Carolina and New York. "I was congratulated by I don't know how many Swedes after the election. I think what he stands for needs to be celebrated."

"No one is doing their favorite songs or greatest hits," Peters added. "We're doing songs about hope."

In London, Americans could get free admission to Madame Tussaud's waxworks to see the new figure of Obama, and Queen Elizabeth II sent the new president a personal message of support. Parties were scheduled in dozens of venues, from ritzy hotels to local sports bars.
Not everyone ushered in the new era with celebration and well wishing.
In Iran, protesters burnt posters of U.S. President-elect Barack Obama and waved flags in support of Gaza, Reuters reported.

"Where are the freedom seekers?" one poster read that had the word "Gaza" on it and a picture of a weeping Palestinian, Reuters reported. Demonstrators waved Palestinian flags and chanted "Death to Obama," outside the Swiss embassy, and Reuters said it obtained pictures of Obama's image laid on the road for cars to drive over
So much for Mr. President's universal appeal. In some ways this is a very important development and one I am sure the MSM, Democrats and liberals will fail to see. Haters don't care if your black, white or brown. The Iranian protesters showed just as much hate for President Obama, as they did for former President Bush. What people should take away from this is that the "New Era" replete with warm fuzzies of "hope and Change" is over already. The image that the media had built up of President Obama as some universally likable bringer together of different interests was mocked, stoned, run over by cars and burned. The man in the Oval Office today is hated by the middle east Muslims like his predecessors were.  Let there be no delusions about that.

And please somebody, anybody tell me what this "New Era" is? How is it different from the old era?  When Bush took over from Clinton was that a "New Era" too? Or are only Democrats allowed to have "New Eras"?

In the Inbox

A friend of mine sent me this joke. It actually made me LOL. Really it did!

Muslim Quarterback

The coach had put together the perfect team for the Detroit Lions. The only thing that was missing was a good quarterback. He had scouted all the colleges and even the Canadian and European Leagues, but he couldn't find a ringer who could ensure a Super Bowl win.

Then one night while watching CNN he saw a war-zone scene in Afghanistan . In one corner of the background, he spotted a young Afghan Muslim soldier with a truly incredible arm. He threw a hand-grenade straight into a 15th story window 100 yards away.


He threw another hand-grenade 75 yards away, right into a chimney.


Then he threw another at a passing car going 90 mph.


"I've got to get this guy!" Coach said to himself. "He has the perfect arm!"

So, he brings him to the States and teaches him the great game of football. And the Lions go on to win the Super Bowl. The young Afghan is hailed as the great hero of football, and when the coach asks him what he wants, all the young man wants is to call his mother.

"Mom," he says into the phone, "I just won the Super Bowl!"

"I don't want to talk to you, the old Muslim woman says. "You deserted us. You are not my son!"

"I don't think you understand, Mother," the young man pleads. "I've won the greatest sporting event in the world. I'm here among thousands of my adoring fans."

"No! Let me tell you!" his mother retorts. "At this very moment, there are gunshots all around us. The neighborhood is a pile of rubble. Your two brothers were beaten within an inch of their lives last week, and I have to keep your sister in the house so she doesn't get raped!" The old lady pauses, and then tearfully says, "I will never forgive you for making us move to Detroit !"

In Memoriam : Eartha Kitt

The world lost a very distinctive voice and an most unique personality Dec 25th. Veteran actress, singer, dancer Eartha Kitt died at 81.

Image Hosted by

Through the 1950s and '60s, she performed on stage and television, in films and nightclubs.

Her best-known TV performance was as Catwoman on the '60s series Batman. Her distinctive purr was later featured in the animated film The Emperor's New Groove and the Disney Channel series The Emperor's New School, for which she won Emmy Awards in 2007 and 2008.

The biggest controversy of her career occurred in 1968, when she spoke out against the Vietnam War at a White House luncheon hosted by first lady Lady Bird Johnson.

She was investigated by the FBI and the CIA and subsequently worked almost exclusively overseas. She later returned and, in 1978, was the toast of Broadway performing in Timbuktu.

Just before she died I had downloaded several of her songs including "I Want to Be Evil" I also have a copy of her version of "Santa Baby" which was certified gold last month. Earth Kitt had one child, a daughter Kitt Shapiro from her marriage to John Barry Ryan. Kitt said this of her mother:

"I had the most amazing mother. She was not afraid of dying. She was in pain, but funny right to the end. One of the last things she said when I was talking loudly to her - like you do to a sick person - was: 'I'm dying. I'm not losing my hearing!'
"And she said, 'There won't be a burial. I'll be cremated. I don't want to take up space.'
"My mother had no regrets. She said: 'I have lived an amazing life. I did everything I ever dreamed of.' I was truly, truly blessed to have landed in her lap."

Eartha Kitt had to rise above an early life of abuse and her story is inspiring. I hope that at some point she was able to come to the saving Grace and Knowledge of Jesus. Please pray for her daughter and two grandchildren.
