President Obama, already showing signs of physical and mental fatigue after just 10 days in office, excused himself from the Oval Office game of power Monopoly long enough to zing the same crooks and vultures most likely to benefit from the latest bail out scheme being crafted by his economic professors.
As reported in the Wall Street Journal, reference 1, in part:
"President Barack Obama stepped up his rhetorical attacks Thursday on the same banks his officials are planning to aid. Summoning reporters after a closed meeting with Mr. Geithner, Mr. Obama blasted earlier news that Wall Street had paid out $18.4 billion in bonuses, calling it 'the height of irresponsibility' and 'shameful.'
"There will be time for them to make profits, and there will be time for them to get bonuses," he said. "Now is not that time."
Wonder how many of those Wall Street thugs standing on the White House lawn with tin cups in their hands realize that those billions from Treasury come with the following socialist hook:
Wall Street surrenders its financial sovereignty and will engage in the obscene business of "making profits and getting bonuses" only when President Obama says it is "time" to do so?
Still, it is inspiring to learn that our newly installed president is interested in combating irresponsibility and shame. Lord knows there is an abundance of both throughout Washington, D.C., particularly among politicians with the D brand next to their names.
In fact, one really on the prowl for irresponsibility and shame would find a veritable gold mine in the Democrat position on illegal aliens.
Illegal aliens cost American taxpayers nearly $100 billion dollars every year for education, health care, welfare assistance and other public services to which they are not entitled.
Liberals constantly lament overcrowded classrooms, soaring health care costs, and other economic conditions that afflict the middle class. All of those problems are exacerbated by the presence of millions of invading criminals who have no legal or moral basis for being here.
Want to reduce school room class sizes,health care costs, and crime, ease state budget crises, and make the American Dream once again attainable by American citizens, Mr. President?
Then order Homeland Security and or the Defense Department to secure our borders with Mexico and begin the process of deporting the millions of invading criminals already here.
At a time when the American people are confronted by the worse economic crisis since the Great Depression, wasting hundreds of billions of dollars on illegal aliens is indeed "shameful and the height of irresponsibility!"

For years, the holiday set aside to celebrate the birthday of Martin Luther King was justified as being necessary to atone for slavery and discrimination, and to recognize the many contributions made by African-Americans to American culture and society.
America does not celebrate the birthday of any other individual as a separate holiday. Presidents, past and present, are celebrated collectively on President's Day each February.
When Barack Obama is sworn in as America's 44th President, he will be celebrated, along with the 43 former presidents, each February.
Thus, Martin Luther King Day will be superfluous to the need for a day to honor black Americans.
Eliminating one costly federal holiday may be the most productive CHANGE that Barack Obama can bring to America!

On January 20, 1961, John Fitzgerald delivered an eloquent, hopeful, and pro-American inaugural address to the nation and the world. See Reference 1 for the complete text.
Among other things, the brilliant new leader issued the following challenge to the world:
"Let the word go forth from this time and place, to friend and foe alike, that the torch has been passed to a new generation of Americans--born in this century, tempered by war, disciplined by a hard and bitter peace, proud of our ancient heritage--and unwilling to witness or permit the slow undoing of those human rights to which this nation has always been committed, and to which we are committed today at home and around the world.
"Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe to assure the survival and the success of liberty."
Forty eight years later, America is set to "pass the torch" to a non-citizen Marxist who parlayed $750 million dollars, massive voter fraud, and " Play pay for politics" into an amazing hijacking of the US Presidency.
An appropriate speech to replace American patriotism and pride with Obama-mania would read as follows:
"Let the word go forth from this time and place, to friends, and especially to foes, that the torch has been passed to a generation of Americans who fervently hate this nation and who believe that every wrong in the world can be traced back to American policy and actions.
"This generation, ashamed of wars fought to defend America from destruction at the hands of evil terrorists, embarrassed by our ancient heritage, has elected a non-citizen Marxist to the presidency, a man unwilling to fight the slow undoing of the human rights to which this nation has always been committed.
"Let every nation know, that we shall pay no price, bear no burden, meet no hardship, support no friend, oppose no foe to assure the survival and the success of liberty if said actions would be offend any nation, whether it wishes us well or ill.
"This generation has elected a president who understands that being a compliant "citizen of the world" is far more important than preserving American liberty, culture and heritage, and influence throughout the world."
In that same speech on January 1961, JFK uttered this famous line:
"And so, my fellow Americans: ask not what your country can do for you - ask what you can do for your country."
To accommodate Obama-mania, those words would need to be changed to say:
"And so my fellow citizens of the world living here in America: Ask not what you can for your country-ask what big government can do for you.
"From paying that mortgage that you could not afford to begin with; to taking care of all of your health care needs through socialized, and inferior, medicine; to spreading the wealth from the ambitious and successful to the lazy and failed; to assuring that extreme opinions expressed in the name of free speech are appropriately balanced with progressive ideals through adoption of a "fairness doctrine;" to slashing hundreds of billions of dollars wasted on homeland security and defense and using those funds to assist and support needy illegal aliens and other minorities; to easing enforcement of the "rule of law" to overcome America's obsession with borders and illegal immigration; to recognizing that the United States Constitution is more than 230 years old, and as such, must be regarded as a "living" document, subject to contemporary values and moral, especially in this era of CHANGE; to assuring that old-fashioned values concerning homosexuality, marriage, and abortions must be vacated to assure maximum diversity and tolerance, to protecting average Americans from the ravages of corrupt greed and capitalism:
"Never forget, we are here to take care of you and your family from cradle to grave!"
JFK must be rolling over in his grave!

To Americans, except for mindless liberals hypnotized by the alluring scent of Marxism, Hugo Chavez is a brutal, tinhorn dictator whose final destiny should parallel that of Iraq's Saddam Hussein.
The only problem is finding rope of sufficient strength to hold up under the bloat of Venezuelan's chunky brown giant until his commie frame is relieved of 70 pounds of disgusting fat, his butt -ugly head!
As reported by Reuters in Reference (1), Chavez has decided to deal with political dissension in the only way a none-too-bright dictator thug knows how: Break out the tear gas!
From the referenced report, in part:
"CARACAS, Jan 17 (Reuters) - Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez ordered police on Saturday to use tear gas on anti-government protests that block roads, heating up a campaign for a referendum that could allow him to run for re-election.
"Venezuelans will vote next month on a proposed change to the constitution that would allow Chavez, a foe of the United States, to seek re-election when his term ends in four years.
"In 2007, voters rejected a package of political reforms that would have allowed him to run again for the top office.
"Small groups of students in gas masks and wielding plastic shields protested the proposal this week. They threw stones at police, blocked a highway and were accused of setting fire to a national park. Chavez said police on his orders used tear gas to disperse the protest.
"Chavez said the protest was part of a U.S.-backed plan to destabilize the oil-exporting nation ahead of the referendum."
And so it goes. The despicable dictator attempts to blame America, the most free and humane society in history, for his inability to govern.
God Bless and keep the good people of Venezuela and may they shake off this tyrant like the piece of animal excrement that he is!

Atheists, wanna be atheists, and other liberal heathen can always be counted on to scowl at the mere mention of the "Power of Prayer" or other religious beliefs based on faith in the supernatural.
Atheism is a growing menace in America, especially among uneducated twits who believe that being anti-God is a sure mark of intellectualism, when in fact the exact opposite is true.
Another obvious truth: The number of non-believers surely took a big hit as a result of impromptu conversions that took place in the freezing waters of the Hudson River this afternoon.
The drama began minutes after US Airways Flight 1549 suffered a "double bird strike" during take off, which choked off both of the airliner's engines and left the Airbus A320 suspended in mid-air above the great metropolis area of New York City.
As reported, in part, by WCBSCTV, reference (1):
"The pilot of US Airways Flight 1549 was being lauded as a hero Thursday night after he somehow managed to land a plane with two blown engines safely in the middle of the Hudson River. All 155 passengers and crew have been accounted for, according to the Federal Aviation Administration.
"There appear to be only minor injuries at this point, in addition to fears of hypothermia. Mayor Michael Bloomberg said passengers were taken to Manhattan and New Jersey on various ferries. He said there was believed to be no significant injuries. The city is trying to contact everyone who was on that plane.
"CBS 2 HD has learned the crippled plane missed the George Washington Bridge by just 900 feet.
"The veteran pilot, Chesley Sullenberger, guided the Airbus 320 into the Hudson near 48th Street after it lost two engines shortly after its 3:26 p.m. takeoff from LaGuardia Airport. Early reports said the plane hit a flock of birds.
"We have a heroic pilot who saved himself and 154 other passengers. We've had a Miracle on 34th Street and now I believe we've had a miracle on the Hudson," Gov. David Paterson said at a joint press conference with Bloomberg on Thursday evening.
"Passenger Jeff Kolodjay of Norwalk, Conn., said he heard an explosion two or three minutes into the flight, looked out the left side of the Airbus 320 and saw one of the engines on fire.
"The captain said, `Brace for impact because we're going down,"' Kolodjay said. He said passengers put their heads in their laps and started saying prayers. He said the plane hit the water pretty hard, but he was fine."
Did those prayers save the 155 people aboard Flight 1549? Atheists will point out that a loving God would not have allowed those birds to blow the jet engines of the Airbus 320 to begin with.
To which the obvious rejoinder is, "How the hell do YOU know what a loving God would do? You insist there is no such entity, so your opinion is worthless!"
Praise be to God, brother!

Satire By John W. Lillpop
Upon moving into the White House in 1961, John F. Kennedy, America's First Camelot president, was famously quoted as saying: "The thing that surprised me most was to find that things were just as bad as we'd been saying they were. "
JFK was, of course, referring to his predecessor, a two-term Republican from Texas, Dwight David Eisenhower.
Forty eight years later, America's second Camelot, also successor to a two-term Republican from Texas, is pinching JFK's idea, if not exact words.
It will be remembered that candidate Obama, and Democrats in general, ruthlessly lashed out at the Bush Administration for wasting American lives and treasury in Iraq while failing to capture OBL, CEO of global Islamofascism.
How difficult can it be, they ridiculed, to find a 7-foot, bearded Jihadist with a dialysis machine permanently affixed to his terrorist frame?
Candidate Obama even intimated that as president he might order an invasion into Pakistan, an American ally in the war on terror, to smoke out the elusive OBL.
However, with his presidential aspirations just days away from fruition, President-elect Obama has apparently discovered that things are as bad as he has been saying.
Which may help to explain Barack Hussein Obama's apparent "bail out" of Osama bin Laden, as reported in the Morningstar, in part: (Reference 1)
"I think that we have to so weaken his infrastructure that, whether he is technically alive or not, he is so pinned down that he cannot function," Obama said.
"My preference obviously would be to capture or kill him. But if we have so tightened the noose that he's in a cave somewhere and can't even communicate with his operatives, then we will meet our goal of protecting America."
Thank you Mr. President-elect.
George W. Bush could not have said it better, although Lord knows he tried!

John Ziegler is a brilliant, world-class political commentator, talk show host, and documentary filmmaker. Talkers Magazine listed Ziegler as number 54 on their "Heavy Hundred" list of the most important U.S. radio talk show hosts in 2007.
His national credentials include hosting the Matt Drudge Show during Drudge's absence as well as appearances on FoxNews.
Ziegler is currently producing an important documentary titled "Media Malpractice," which dissects the election of Barack Obama in response to a challenge issued by the very first president of the United States:
"Promote then as an object of primary importance, Institutions for the general diffusion of knowledge. In proportion as the structure of a government gives force to public opinion, it is essential that public opinion should be enlightened."
George Washington, Farewell Address, September 19, 1796
An important part of Ziegler's project includes an exclusive interview with Alaska Governor Sarah Palin.
Excerpts from that interview and other information concerning "Media Malpractice" are must viewing for those interested in the truth.
