Sorting Day for Ted Kennedy

By John W. Lillpop

During most of his earthly life, Ted Kennedy was able to do pretty much as he darn well pleased, with little or no regard for the rule of law or other social conventions that apply to most Americans.

Wealth and power were his birth right, and Kennedy never missed an opportunity to use his privileges to his fullest advantage.

Kennedy's soul has now passed into a spiritual dimension where the Kennedy name, wealth and power are worthless. The once fearsome "Liberal Lion" has been declawed and must now yield completely to the will of a higher power.

The big questions of the day: How will the forces that rule the beyond resolve the paradoxical figure that is Ted Kennedy? And how will Kennedy handle his powerlessness?

Sorting day might go something like this for the former U.S. Senator:

Sorting Angel:

Mr. Kennedy, the purpose of the sorting procedure is to determine your eternal destiny based on your deeds and accomplishments while on your spiritual journey on planet earth.

We will also take into account any misdeeds and wrongs that you committed and must be held responsible for.

The standard we apply here is really quite simple: What would Jesus do?

Do you understand the process, sir?


Teddy:

Yes I do.

Sorting Angel:

Excellent. Let us get started then.

Senator, you were born into a family that enjoyed enormous wealth, power, influence, and privilege, and you were personally blessed with extraordinary intelligence and powers of persuasion,

You have a remarkable and most commendable record of working on behalf of the oppressed, the poor and the powerless. Your advocacy of equal rights for the less fortunate and down-trodden is nothing short of spectacular.

No one can deny that you worked fearlessly and boldly for the disadvantaged.

However, your record also includes political and personal actions that are not consistent with the blessing you received.

To begin with, we have the Chappaquiddick
incident in 1969 which cost Mary Jo Kopechne her life at the tender age of 29.

Because you were intoxicated, you abandoned Ms. Kopechne to drown to death in your automobile,

You then used your wealth and power to avoid equal treatment. The rule of law was essentially suspended because you were a Kennedy and despite the fact that you were guilty of manslaughter or worse.

We see no request for redemption with respect to this grievous sin. You made no direct public apology or good faith gesture of repentance; therefore, you were buried with the blood of Mary Jo Kopechne on your hands.

You often declare that you love the Catholic faith and the principles taught by Catholic clergy.

Yet, you were a leading advocate for abortion rights, an unholy practice staunchly opposed by the Pope and other leading Church authorities.

Senator, over the course of your many years in the U.S. Senate, 50 million babies were aborted in America alone. We see no evidence that you opposed the heathen and unholy practice of infanticide.

To the contrary, you were known as a powerful champion for abortion rights and completely insensitive to the rights of the unborn.

Sir, your behavior in these two areas is utterly indefensible, especially in a man who has received so many rich blessings from the Lord and who claims to have great love for the Catholic faith.

Based on these facts, Mr. Kennedy, it is my solemn duty to inform you that you will spend eternity in a state of isolated damnation.

You will be allowed limited visits with your liberal contemporaries once they have expired and are sorted into damnation.

That pretty much sums it up.

Are there any questions, Mr. Kennedy?

Teddy:

Thank you, Sorter. I will obviously appeal this blatantly anti-Catholic ruling once I am allowed to speak with my legal team.

We will request an immediate injunction to block enforcement pending adjudication of my appeal.

Until then, do you know of any local cocktail lounges that rock, and that will let me ring up a bar tab using my famous name as collateral?

Satire by John W. Lillpop

Senator Jay Rockefeller of West Virginia has enough money to demand and receive the best psychological care available anywhere on the planet. So, perhaps it is Rockefeller pride that keeps the senator from admitting that he has a problem and seeking immediate help from top mental health professionals?

Owing to Rockefeller's overly ferocious pride, this disturbed senator continues to participate in the mis-governance of America, his latest "contribution" being a proposed Senate bill that would give Barack Obama control of the Internet. *

Proponents of this Orwellian nonsense seek to dull the pain of such an idea by pointing out that the bill would confer such control only in emergency situations and only on a temporary basis.

Of course, with Team Obama in charge, Emergency could be defined as anything from plummeting approval ratings to town hall meetings disrupted by goofy right-wing extremists operating under the absurd delusion that the First and Second Amendments are still in force.

Temporary could mean until the next election, which Obama could rig (like he did in 2008) by putting ACORN fraud specialists in charge of the World Wide Web.

And with the U.S. Congress in the hands of folks like Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid, there is not, and never will be, any oversight of the Obama monarchy-messiahship.

Apart from the outrageous idea of granting even more power to government over the lives of once free Americans, Rockefeller's folly is particularly offensive in light of the current president.

After all, in just seven plus months, President Obama has managed to rack up more federal deficit than George W. Bush did in eight years. Obama has driven the American automobile industry into bankruptcy, his policies have devastated the U.S. economy and any hope for a recovery.

Obama has transformed the war on terror into a full frontal assault on the CIA and those (wildly successful) measures implemented by George W. Bush to keep America safe from terrorist attack.

This president has turned GITMO into a staging area for Jihad terrorists awaiting their next assignment from Osama bin Laden.

He has single-handedly changed USA from United States of America to United States of Apologies.

Our first African-American president, working in the post-racism era, has exacerbated racial tensions with truly "stupid" remarks about a white police officer simply doing his job.

All in all, Barack Obama has been the worst president in U.S. history, about which he knows next to nothing and respects not one whit.

Which begs this question: Senator Rockefeller, can you please explain why it makes any sense to turn control over the most profound communications tool in human history to a man whose sole success to date has to slaughter a common house fly on national television? After a long and vicious struggle in which the damn fly nearly prevailed?

Teddy, the Lady Killer

By John W. Lillpop

How is it that when a person dies, even the most despicable cad imaginable, a politically correct moratorium is immediately imposed to prevent the truth about the deceased from being mentioned?

Mind you, it is perfectly acceptable to conjure up all sorts of fluff and flattery, including downright lies, to send the dearly departed off in the best light possible.

President Barack Obama will confront this odd cultural dilemma when he steps before a large crowd to deliver the eulogy for Ted Kennedy, former senator from Massachusetts and renowned "Lion of the Left."

Or to be more precise, "Lying of the Left."

Obama already tripped the transparency and truth alarms when he declared that Kennedy was "the greatest senator of our time," at best an ignorant exaggeration, at worse a damnable lie.

Perhaps the president will redeem himself with an honest and objective eulogy, one that recognizes Kennedy's strengths while acknowledging his weaknesses as well.

Well, not ALL of Kennedy's weaknesses, for goodness sake. Time constraints should limit the president to citing, say, the top 50.

At the very top of the list, Obama should call out Kennedy as a Lady-Killer.

Figuratively speaking, Ted Kennedy was quite an accomplished charmer and skirt chaser. Being married was important to this man of faith, but not THAT important.

Kennedy was also a Lady-Killer in the literal sense as those who remember, or have heard about July 19, 2009 will recall.

For on that fateful day, the body of a 29-year old Lady named Mary Jo Kopechne was discovered inside an overturned car belonging to Senator Ted Kennedy, under water in a tidal channel on Chappaquiddick Island, Massachusetts.

Ted Kennedy, the man who was to become an icon in the fight for women's rights, didn't put up much of a fight for Mary Jo on that night because he was too blasted drunk.

Wonder if President Obama will include the Chappaquiddick Incident in his eulogy?

"Clunkers" Another Botched Performance by the Change Gang


By John W. Lillpop


In yet another dismal performance by the Obama Change Gang, the much ballyhooed "cash for Clunkers" debacle actually hurt sales of goods other than autos in the U.S. economy.

As reported at Bloomberg.com, in part:

"Aug. 28 (Bloomberg) -- Consumer spending in the U.S. rose in July as Americans jammed auto showrooms to take advantage of the “cash for clunkers” program while avoiding other purchases.

"The 0.2 percent gain in spending was in line with forecasts and followed a 0.6 percent increase in June, the Commerce Department said today in Washington. Excluding cars, purchases were flat. Consumer sentiment was little changed in August, a separate report showed.

"Auto dealers benefited from the Obama administration’s incentive plan, which ended this month, while retailers such as Kohl’s Corp. and J.C. Penney Co. struggled to lure customers shaken by mounting job losses. Spending gains aren’t likely to be sustained as incomes stagnate and households pay down debt, casting doubt on the strength of the economic recovery.

“The cash-for-clunkers program helped auto sales but hurt other sales, which shows consumption remains weak,” said Christopher Low, chief economist at FTN Financial in New York. “Consumers don’t want to spend on other things and cannot spend, to some extent, because income growth is still anemic.”

Even more distressing is the fact that the lion's share of the auto sales went to Japanese companies.

Apparently, Americans are skeptical of buying from a car company that is being "managed" by the U.S. government, an entity that has proven itself completely incapable of doing anything right while in the grips of Marxists in the White House and Congress.

Which brings up an interesting point about President Obama's recent boast that he "had saved the economy."

Perhaps he did, indeed, save the economy. The Japanese economy that is!

Still, on a more cheery note, a look at the "Countdown until Obama leaves Office" board reveals that there are just 1240 Days, 16 Hours, 43 Minutes, 57 Seconds remaining until America is once again free.

And counting!

President Obama's Vacation Musings










Satire by John W. Lillpop

By now, President Obama must be longing for his good old days as an U.S. Senator, or even better, as Community Organize on the streets of Chicago.

Things were far less unsettling back then. No town hall meetings with irate citizens to contend with.

Back in Chicago, the citizens and illegal aliens would line up in an orderly fashion and you would dole out the booty. No mess, no fuss, and no FOX news!

No Cindy Sheehan parading outside your window as a part of her annual mental breakdown. Has she forgotten who started that damn war? Won't someone please buy her a one-way ticket to Dallas or Crawford, or wherever it is that W. escaped to?

No screaming headlines about Afghanistan turning into the son of Viet Nam, on my watch. No Russ Feingold spewing hatred by calling for time lines for withdrawal of our troops, for God's sake.

Hey, Russ, wake up buddy! It's Barack, fellow Democrat. All that time line crap was supposed to be put away at 12:01 PM, on the afternoon of January 20. Remember?

Back in the good old days there were no pundits hounding your every financial move and blaming you for the "exploding deficit."

Just what in the hell is an "exploding deficit" anyhow? Does the roof of the U.S. Treasury burst into flames, shooting a plume of red ink 40,000 feet into the DC sky?

That's would be bad for the environment and Al Gore would have a cow. Maybe twins. Hope Geithner is on top of that.

No Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid to deal with by pretending that they are financial, military, environmental, and social gurus who know what is best for America. Those are two of the dumbest whack jobs I have ever met. How did they get elected and then reelected?

No Joe Biden. God of my life: No Joe Biden. That amiable dim wit is giving me lung cancer--with him roaming around unrestrained, I am back up to two packs a day!

Oh, for the good old days of corrupt, mob-infested Chicago.

Wonder if Mayor Daley needs an experienced fundraiser with ACORN expertise for his next election campaign?

Liberals' Shameful Exploitation of Kennedy Death

By John W. Lillpop


How desperate are liberals when it comes to their nearly- dead health care morass?

This desperate: Ted Kennedy had barely drawn his last breath before Shrieker of the House Nancy Pelosi rushed to her keyboard at 2 AM to dispatch an e-mail declaring that Kennedy's "dream" would be fulfilled by passage of a socialized medical health care bill.

Other liberals were not quite so obvious; some even waited for the official announcement of Kennedy's death before trading on his name.

Senator Robert Byrd of West Virginia, for example, first had his vital signs checked to make sure that that BREAKING NEWS headline about an old senator dying was not about himself.

Whereupon, the 90-something senator declared that the health care bill should be renamed the Kennedy Health Care plan to honor the younger senator from Massachusetts.

Prudence would dictate moving very slowly on this: Who knows, we might be looking at a Kennedy-Byrd health care bill in weeks, if not days.

Of course, the logical question in all this is: So, a 77-year old man died of brain cancer. Sad, regrettable, but it happens every day.

Why in the world should that fact cause the government to destroy the best health care system in the world and replace it with a Marxist HMO that will only burden taxpayers will trillions in added debt?

How will driving America into bankruptcy help to honor the memory of Ted Kennedy?

Ted Kennedy: Role Model for How Women Should Be Treated?

By John W. Lillpop

For the next several days, American media and liberal politicians will tell the world over and over and over again just how great and gracious Ted Kennedy was.

How Teddy was always the one to champion the cause of the little guy. How he fought incessantly for equal rights for minorities and women.

President Obama started the impromptu "whoppers about Kennedy" memorial by calling him the "greatest senator of our time."

Perhaps, but only when compared to the last elected senator from the not-so-great state of Illinois. A card-carrying Marxist chap with three Muslim names, he was.

One major news service said Kennedy "will always be best remembered by the American people as the brother of John F. Kennedy and Robert Kennedy, both felled by assassins' bullets."

No doubt many Americans will hold that memory of Kennedy first and foremost in their minds.

However, millions others will always remember the events of July 19, 1969 when it comes to the real legacy of Ted Kennedy.

For on that fateful day, the body of a young woman named Mary Jo Kopechne was discovered inside an overturned car belonging to Senator Ted Kennedy, under water in a tidal channel on Chappaquiddick Island, Massachusetts.

Ted Kennedy, the man who was to become an icon in the fight for women's rights, didn't put up much of a fight for Mary Jo on that night because he was too blasted drunk.

Does that sound like the "greatest senator of our time?"

Proof that ObamaCare Will NOT Cover Illegal Aliens!










By John W. Lillpop

One of the more disturbing aspects of ObamaCare is that it would apparently cover the 20 million or so illegal aliens from Mexico and further south of our borders whom have invaded our pristine homeland in quest of free education, health care, housing all and all of the other goodies that Democrats love to dole out to the least worthy among us in exchange for a lifetime of votes.

This issue is so heated that President Obama himself addressed it directly during his Saturday radio address to the nation.

As reported at the Washington Examiner, in part:

"Among the many claims being made during the August recess by Democrats from President Obama, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-NV, and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-CA, to the lowliest back-bencher is that Obamacare absolutely, positively, cannot possibly ever in a million, zillion years provide coverage to illegal immigrants

"Just this past weekend during his regular Saturday address - devoted to addressing what he called "false claims about reform" - Obama said he wants "an honest debate" on health care reform, "not one dominated by willful misrepresentations and outright distortions"

"In what he called the "first myth" being spread by critics of his proposal for a government-run health care system, Obama said they are wrong in claiming illegal immigrants will be covered: "That is not true. Illegal immigrants would not be covered. That idea has not even been on the table," Obama said."

However, as with everything this president says, one must dig a smidgen deeper to get to "the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth."

Claims of openness and transparency notwithstanding, even Helen Thomas realizes that Barack Obama makes Richard Nixon look like a Tibetan monk when it comes to candor.

With regard to illegal aliens and ObamaCare, the Lillpop Brigade for Spiritual Healing in Government (LBSHIG) has investigated the issue thoroughly and has reached the following conclusion:

Technically, the president is right. But only because he plans to grant carte blanche amnesty to the first 20 million illegal aliens who apply!

Simply put, when Obama finishes ripping the rule of law to shreds and remaking America into a third-world cesspool akin to Mexico, there won't be any illegal aliens to worry about!

Once again, the anti- transparency impulse has its way with our blessed president!

America's New "At Risk" Populace











By John W. Lillpop


Until very recently, the term "at risk" generally referred to low-income, minority youngsters without access to the resources and emotional support deemed necessary to develop into productive and law-abiding citizens.

Being designated "at risk" usually meant one was eligible to receive nearly unlimited goodies from federal, state, and local bleeding heart bureaucrats, all of whom were trained to find and nurture your "inner child" with other people's money.

It was almost like winning the lottery, except there were no taxes to be paid. At risk meant the goodies all went directly to you, the alleged victim.

The fact that your parents were not married to each other and were drug addicted alcoholics who robbed banks and engaged in prostitution to support themselves was not a mark against you; in fact, it usually meant you were a high priority for receiving cash handouts. Immediately.

However, under the guise of urgently needed health care reform, liberals in the United States government are in the process of expanding the definition of "at risk" to include those who are "takers" rather than "givers" in our new, diverse society.

Under the ObamaCare scheme, you are "at risk" if you are 55 or holder and:

Are Caucasian.

Take prescription medications.

Have served honorably in the United States military.

Speak and write only English.

Believe that acting out at Tea parties and Town Hall meetings is free speech and protected by the First Amendment.

Oppose abortion, illegal immigration, higher taxes, same sex marriage and Al Gore's campaign to wipe out global warming.

Have voted Republican within the past 10 years and/or are currently registered as a Republican.

The new "at risk" category is a humane and just solution to exploding deficits because it "spreads the wealth" by encouraging those who have led the good life to seek their rewards in the hereafter.

It is a subtle expansion of Joe Biden's philosophy, which holds that paying higher taxes is patriotic.

Under ObamaCare, getting off Social Security and Medicare ASAP is damn near as heroic as getting blasted to smithereens in Obama's Afghanistan quagmire!

Inconvenient Truth: Obama Woes Have Nothing to Do with Racism

By John W. Lillpop

With President Obama's approval ratings in free fall and showing no signs of rebounding anytime soon, it has become convenient, and even fashionable, for mainstream media to blame the fall and decline of Obamamania on an impromptu breakout of racism from coast to coast.

Mind you, seven months ago, when the world was in the midst of the "thrills running up and down my leg" pandemic, racism had pretty much been eradicated from the lexicon of demented dim wits at MSNBC, those talentless malcontents who fancy themselves as sophisticated pundits, but whom are actually bozo the clown clones.

From the Oddball musings of Chris Matthews to Keith Olbermann's daily struggle to count to 10 (even with an Obama- autographed teleprompter at his side), MSNBC has redefined political punditry as an art form which morphs the best (and worst) from mud wrestling and Obama informercials into one muddled evening of unwatchable television.

Parental discretion is always advised, unless one is determined to drive down the IQ of one's offspring to a level compatible with being a left wing extremist.

Blaming President Obama's plunge on racism makes about as much sense as:

-Blaming Jon Corzine's looming defeat on a sudden outbreak of voter rage aimed at liberal governors who do not wear seat belts while being chauffeured at 100-miles-an hour.

-Explaining Nancy Pelosi's dismal approval numbers on un-American voters who hate Botox, especially in silly women over 65.

-Recognizing that Harry Reid is in deep do-do because he has failed to deliver amnesty for 20 million non-English speaking illegal aliens urgently needed to do work that Americans (especially blacks) will not do, which is a huge concern in Nevada.

Enough is enough, already!

Liberal politicians, both those safely manacled to their cushy jobs for the time being, and those seeking reelection, are in trouble because the American people have at long last re-discovered a vital truth:

Liberalism simply does not work! Not in Russia, not in Cuba, not in China, and most of all, not in America!

That inconvenient truth is destined to provide an invaluable "Teaching Moment" for Obama, Corzine, Pelosi, Reid, and scores of other leftist politicians.

With any sort of luck at all, soon We the People will be able to thank God for deliverance from the awful scourge known as liberalism!

Does God REALLY Need President Obama as a Partner?

Satire By John W. Lillpop

No one knows for certain if God Almighty has a sense of humor, although I rather suspect that He does.

Heavenly humor might explain why the coolest summer in years has made Al Gore and other environmental nut balls look down right foolish for their pathetic attempts to sell global warming as an urgent emergency.

Only if HE had an uproarious sense of humor would such delicious irony be possible.

Heavenly humor might also explain how a simple, but determined, house fly could drive the most powerful man in the world to utter distraction as cameras from all across the globe broadcast the epic battle in living color and HDTV.

That fly MUST have had divine inspiration and help in order to pull off his kamikaze flying stunts despite the president's access to the Secret Service, CIA, FBI, US Marines, Army, and Air Force.

Assuming that God does, indeed, have a sense of humor, He must be roaring with laughter at Barack Obama's recent decision to let God in on major life and death issues.

As reported, in part, at inforwars.com, President Obama said, “We are God’s partners in matters of life and death,” an obvious reference to Obama's ambitious plans to reform health care.

Hmmmm. Since when has God needed a partner in matters involving the life and death of those He created in His own image?

And from a two-bit community organizer from Chicago, no less?

By the way, what about the left's folly about "separation of church and state" as an inviolable Constitutional principle?

Aside from the legal impurities involved, an Obama-God partnership could make for lively meetings and conversations.

A typical conversation might go something like this:

God:

Barack, I am very concerned that ObamaCare would infringe on some of my most precious prerogatives as Creator of all that is, ever was, or will ever be.

For example, on Page 1,902 of bill 3200, the government is authorized to fund abortions.

On Page 2,603, death panels would be authorized to deny care and medicine to anyone over 50 years of age based on "applicable cost-benefit models developed in accordance with the latest medical technology available, as appropriate."

That government gibberish and double talk is, at its core, blatant tinkering with my private property.

BHO:

Sir, please. I urge you to not be bamboozled by evil conservatives who are lying and spreading misinformation about health care reform in order to destroy my presidency.

God:

Barack, I happen to agree with those conservatives.
Human life is my most sacred Creation. It is not to be trifled with because of inconvenience or cost.

BHO:

Sir, Nancy Pelosi says 3200 will not pass the U.S. House without death panels and abortion on demand funding.

God:

Don't fret over Nancy Pelosi. Just between you and me, I am calling her home right after Labor Day. The new Speaker will be a Blue Dog from Alabama.

BHO:

Sir, I simply cannot work with a Blue Dog Democrat. It is untenable. I refuse.

God:

Keep it up, Obama, and I'll schedule you for an early call home as well. Don't forget that even a $20 million mansion in Martha's Vineyard is not beyond my reach!

And so it might go between the Omnipotent and the Obama fairy tale.

However, there is a "teaching moment" to be gleaned from this.

Namely: Let God be God!

Is President Obama " Burned out?"

Satire by John W. Lillpop

Although I am neither a psychologist nor psychiatrist, it seems to me that our once young and vigorous president has been worn to a frazzle.

It is called "burn out" in layman's terms, and middle-aged men who are having problems on the job are most vulnerable to this insidious disorder.

When you think about it, President Obama has every reason in the world to be overwhelmed and frazzled.

After all, working 24/7 to destroy America's social, economic, educational, and cultural institutions, all of which have survived for 233 years, is no menial task.

Attempting to CHANGE everything in seven months would wear out any idealist-plagued Marxist, regardless of age, health, or grit.

Even those whom would normally support Obama on health care, for example, are speaking out against throwing another $1.3 trillion dollars at the problem without intelligent planning, reasonable debate, and consideration of the impact on an economy that is still in recession.

As reported, in part, at Yahoo news, Senator Joe Lieberman hit the nail on the head with his remarks:

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20090823/ap_on_go_co/us_health_care_overhaul



"An independent senator counted on by Democrats in the health care debate showed signs of wavering Sunday when he urged President Barack Obama to postpone many of his initiatives because of the economic downturn.

"I'm afraid we've got to think about putting a lot of that off until the economy's out of recession," said Connecticut Sen. Joe Lieberman. "There's no reason we have to do it all now, but we do have to get started. And I think the place to start is cost health delivery reform and insurance market reforms."

The Senator is exactly right. Attempting a costly remake of health care would be a huge mistake during a recession and would be completely reckless and irresponsible.

President Obama needs to add the word "WAIT!" to his teleprompter scripts!

So what exactly is a left wing extremist addicted to wasteful spending to do when burn out shuts him down?

How about some well-deserved time off in a $20 million luxury estate in a paradise where only the filthy rich dare tread?

Take a few cartons of Pall Mall unfiltered longs with you, sir, and share a few private "wee-wee'' moments with Michelle and the girls.

Stay as long as you like, Mr. President.

In fact, your approval ratings might benefit if you remained sequestered at Martha's Vineyard for, say, three or four months.

Have a great time, sir, and focus on CHANGE--to that wrong minded liberalism which has left you befuddled and in a quagmire of your own making.

War on Drugs Over in Mexico: President Calderon Surrenders!










By John W. Lillpop

How do you say, "If you cannot beat them, join them!" in Spanish?

That term would appear to be most appropriate in third-world Mexico where President Felipe Calderon signed legislation to make the possession of "small amounts" of drugs, including cocaine and heroine, non-criminal.

The key here is small amounts. Addicts generally do not do well in limiting their pleasure to just small amounts. That is why they are called addicts.

As reported in the Phoenix newtimes, in part:

http://blogs.phoenixnewtimes.com/valleyfever/2009/08/want_drugs_go_to_mexico_now_it.php

"Parents will be delighted to learn that their college students now have a legal place to experiment with hard drugs. And it's just across the border.

"No joke. Yesterday, Mexican President Felipe Calderon signed a controversial bill into law that will decriminalize the possession of small amounts of drugs, including pot and hard drugs like heroin, cocaine, LSD and meth -- basically, the works.

"By legalizing possession of small amounts of drugs, Mexican lawmakers hope to help law enforcement separate casual users from addicts. But it's not necessarily related to the old jail-or-treatment debate.

"The old law gave Mexican cops the choice of either taking in offenders or telling them to get treatment, the result usually being that small-time users are pinched for la mordida -- a bribe.

"Officials expect the new rules to reduce rampant police corruption. The decision was also influenced by the drug war--which has killed about 11,000 since Calderon took office in 2006--and the rise of drug users in Mexico.

"Here's how it'll work: First and second-time users caught by police will be asked to seek treatment rather than be thrown in jail. If they're caught a third time, they might be required to seek treatment."

With this sort of lunacy now codified into the law in Mexico, one must ask, "Does President Felipe Calderon himself have Mexican Swine Flu?"

Of course, Calderon is under enormous pressure to ramp up tourism after the disastrous swine flu that originated in Mexico and which is now a global pandemic.

Making cocaine and heroine non-criminal (in small amounts, mind you) might do wonders for the Mexican economy.

Furthermore, Calderon knows that there is a high probability that poor drug addicts will invade the U.S. in search of better jobs with which to fund their "mainstream" drug habits.

Its called illegal immigration and Calderon is all for it, provided the invaders are headed north to America. He is not nearly so enthusiastic about illegal aliens coming to Mexico from south of its borders.

Borders? What borders? We don't got no stinkin' borders!

Then again, honorable citizens may take only "small amounts" of cocaine and heroine in order to comply with the law.

And perhaps Tom Tancredo will be elected president of Mexico on Labor Day?

Once Again, Ted Kennedy Expects Undeserved Special Treatment

By John W. Lillpop

Ted Kennedy was born into a life of privilege and advantage. His has been a life of elitist fame and fortune, unencumbered by the everyday worries that challenge most American families.

Money was never an issue with Kennedy and having it gave the younger brother of John Fitzgerald Kennedy and Robert Kennedy extraordinary power and the freedom to do things that a person of modest means would never consider, much less attempt.

Take for instance, the death of Mary Jo Kopechne who died as a result of Ted Kennedy's drunken driving in the Chappaquiddick incident. Anybody but a Kennedy would have been prosecuted for manslaughter, perhaps worse.

However, because Ted was a Kennedy, the rule of law was bent to accommodate his wealth and power.

Intimidated law authorities in Massachusetts overlooked the death of 29-year old woman in order to protect Kennedy.

40 years later, liberals regard Kennedy as an icon in the battle for the little guy. Mary Jo Kopechne is but a distant and fading memory, not worth worrying about.

Despite a lifetime of selfish indulgence, Ted Kennedy is not finished.

As reported at Boston.com, in part:

"Senator Edward M. Kennedy, in a poignant acknowledgment of his mortality at a critical time in the national health care debate, has privately asked the governor and legislative leaders to change the succession law to guarantee that Massachusetts will not lack a Senate vote when his seat becomes vacant.

"In a personal, sometimes wistful letter sent Tuesday to Governor Deval L. Patrick, Senate President Therese Murray, and House Speaker Robert A. DeLeo, Kennedy asks that Patrick be given authority to appoint someone to the seat temporarily before voters choose a new senator in a special election."

Unsolicited advise for Governor Patrick and the others:

Bestow upon Ted Kennedy the exact same measure of respect and compassion that he offered Mary Jo Kopechne in 1969.

Deja Vu All Over Again on Vast Right Wing Conspiracy?






By John W. Lillpop

Remember when first lady Hillary Clinton lashed out at that "vast right wing conspiracy" she was convinced was out to destroy her innocent Bubba? Only to discover later that Slick was charming every female (except her) in that notorious little back room off the Oval Office, reserved as it were for presidential dalliances?

Does the name Monica Lewinsky ring a bell? How about a blue dress bearing presidential DNA?

It now appears as though Hillary has gotten inside the head of our young and impressionable president and has succeeded in planting despicable propaganda therein.

As reported in the Washington Times, in part:

"President Obama took to the conservative airwaves Thursday to charge that Republican leaders are engaged in a vast right-wing conspiracy to kill health care reform in order to repeat the 1994 mid-term takeover of Congress, which followed the defeat of President Clinton's reform plan.

"I think early on, a decision was made by the Republican leadership that said, 'Look, let's not give him a victory, maybe we can have a replay of 1993, '94, when Clinton came in, he failed on health care and then we won in the mid-term elections and we got the majority. And I think there are some folks who are taking a page out that playbook," the president said. "

With all due respect sir, the problem with ObamaCare is that the numbers simply do not add up. That fact has been substantiated by the Congressional Budget Office on two separate occasions.

Is the CBO a part of your vast right wing conspiracy theory, sir?

Furthermore, much of the opposition to your plan comes from blue dog Democrats, one of whom who even suggested that the bill currently being considered be scrapped in total in order to achieve a fresh, new start.

Since when have Democrats been part of a vast right wing conspiracy?

Finally, the American people are fed up with politicians who support complex legislation of 1,000 pages or more without reading or understanding what is involved, but which costs taxpayers a trillion dollars or more that we simply do not have.

We the People are also opposed to having socialized medicine rammed down our throats, including provisions that cover illegal aliens and abortions.

Put simply, We the People are very apprehensive about a vast left-wing conspiracy that would grant unprecedented and unchecked power to government bureaucrats.

Thank God for blue dog Democrats and that vast right wing conspiracy for fighting on behalf of We the People!

Ted Kennedy Seeks Posthumous "Privilege"

By John W. Lillpop

Ted Kennedy was born into a life of privilege and advantage. He has never been challenged to "make ends meet" as most American families have.

Getting the best that money can buy, including education, was a foregone conclusion for the younger brother of John Fitzgerald Kennedy and Robert Kennedy, both victims of murder in the 1960s.

Ted Kennedy should have been prosecuted for manslaughter, or worse, in the death of Mary Jo Kopechne as a result of his drunken driving in the Chappaquiddick incident.

Because he was a Kennedy, the rule of law was bent to accommodate his evil, at the expense of a young woman who drowned to death.

Despite a lifetime of selfish exploitation, Ted Kennedy is not finished.

As reported at Boston.com, in part:

http://www.boston.com/news/local/massachusetts/articles/2009/08/20/kennedy_looking_ahead_urges_a_quick_filling_of_senate_seat/


"Senator Edward M. Kennedy, in a poignant acknowledgment of his mortality at a critical time in the national health care debate, has privately asked the governor and legislative leaders to change the succession law to guarantee that Massachusetts will not lack a Senate vote when his seat becomes vacant.

"In a personal, sometimes wistful letter sent Tuesday to Governor Deval L. Patrick, Senate President Therese Murray, and House Speaker Robert A. DeLeo, Kennedy asks that Patrick be given authority to appoint someone to the seat temporarily before voters choose a new senator in a special election."

Recommendation to Governor Patrick and the others: Bestow upon Ted Kennedy the same respect and privilege that he extended to Mary Jo Kopechne back in 1969.

Bad News for Liberals and ObamaCare: US Life Expectancy UP!









Satire by John W. Lillpop


In yet another jarring bit of awful news for liberals in general, and Obamacare in particular, life expectancy in these great United States has actually risen over the past year.

In years gone by, such news would have been seen by the president and Congressional leaders as confirmation of America's excellent heath care system and further proof that private enterprise is capable of amazing success if left alone by government.

However, that was before the current government that regards private enterprise as evil and the lives of Americans expendable at the whim of cost-benefit computer models.

As reported at yahoo.news, in part:

"ATLANTA – U.S. life expectancy has risen to a new high, now standing at nearly 78 years, the government reported Wednesday.
The increase is due mainly to falling death rates in almost all the leading causes of death. The average life expectancy for babies born in 2007 is nearly three months greater than for children born in 2006.

"The new U.S. data is a preliminary report based on about 90 percent of the death certificates collected in 2007. It comes from the National Center for Health Statistics, part of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

"The United States continues to lag behind about 30 other countries in estimated life span. Japan has the longest life expectancy — 83 years for children born in 2007, according to the World Health Organization."

This news is, of course, devastating to the Obama administration and to lefties running the US Congress because it means old timers will be around longer than expected to receive costly medical care desperately needed by illegal aliens.

It also means that the almost bankrupt Social Security system, another liberal ponzi scheme gone amuck, will be under added pressure to send money each month to selfish citizens who refuse to die for their nation.

Upon hearing the disturbing news, America's swat team for CHANGE--President Obama, Nancy Pelosi, and Harry Reid--immediately convened an emergency meeting in the basement of the White House to discuss this new economic catastrophe and to develop an effective counter strategy.

A 'War room" was set up to meet the challenge that could destroy the Obama presidency.

Speaker Pelosi was quoted (anonymously) as saying, "Living to be 78 is un-American! Old people are doing this because they are racists who hate our black president!"

Harry Reid was a tad more optimistic when he said, "This war is NOT lost. America needs a surge in the mortality rate among people aged 55-78, and we intend to implement such a surge in bill 3200."

President Obama was shooting hoops and not available for comment.

A source who is almost never right on these types of stories reports that the Swat Team for Change has a short list of three options to save America.

In no particular order, the list is:

* Raise the minimum age for Social Security to 79. Retroactive to 1992.

* Visit nations with lower life expectancies than America to discover their "secrets." Rewrite ObamaCare accordingly.


* Staff those death panels with left wing goof balls who hate old people and life in general. Change to 50 the minimum age for death panel review before or any medical treatment is authorized.

When finally reached by the media, President Obama had this to say:

"This is another crisis that the American people will have to work through. We have always succeeded when we work together.

"We are calling on anyone over 60 to do as John F. Kennedy asked in 1963, "Ask not what you country can do for you, but ask what you can do for your country."

"Doing what you can for your country in 2009 means getting off the Social Security and Medicare "gravy trains" as soon as possible. Remember, it was you people who caused the Great Depression, two world wars, the Korean and Vietnam wars, and the unwarranted invasion of Iraq!"

"It was you people who brought double-digit inflation to America and destroyed the presidency of Jimmy Carter by voting for that right wing demagogue, Ronald Wilson Reagan. It was you people that put America at war with Islam by electing that drunk from Texas, George W. Bush.

"My fellow Americans, the time for atonement is now. Please do the patriotic thing by leaving this worldly dimension as soon as possible.

"Good night, and God bless Americans with terminal, inoperable diseases!"


And so it goes with the most dangerous and reckless man to have ever stepped foot in the White House!

Progressive Mandate to Last 40 Years? 40 Weeks More Likely!










By John W. Lillpop


Just more than a year ago, the Democrat Party gave the American people a clear and convincing example of the disunity and chaos that their dysfunctional "family" was capable of.

Remember, this is the party that did not have the collective wherewithal to run a decent primary campaign, at a time when the GOP was splintered from stem to stern by an unpopular president and an unpopular war.

The Democrat Party, with all of its tradition and history, could not find a way to accommodate the delegate-rich states of Florida and Michigan into the primary mix. Unbelievable!

Bloodletting and throat cutting between candidates Obama and Clinton persisted until the very last minute, as super leftist egos clashed in epic battles.

However, liberal apologists insisted that all of that internal bickering from the primaries was healed under the "Obama is God" banner, raised after the deification of Obama at the national convention in Denver last August.

It was "all cool," according to lefty insiders.

After the results of the November 4 elections, who could argue with the notion that liberalism had somehow wedged itself back into mainstream America?

Obamamania, we were told, had delivered America to "progressives" for at least forty years, according to the crystal ball wielded by that kooky Cajun, swamp boy made good, the one and only (Thank God!) James Carville.

Recent events suggest that Carville's crystal ball needs a bailout and more of whatever it is that causes crystal balls to predict the future with at least 10 percent accuracy!

As reported, in part, at politico:
http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0809/26203.html#ixzz0OXzWGela


"The White House’s signal that it’s willing to back off support for a public health insurance option has sent congressional liberals into full revolt, bluntly warning the administration that no legislation will pass without a government-run plan.

"A group of left-leaning House Democrats tells POLITICO that a bill without a public option simply won’t win enough votes in their caucus – a sentiment that raises fresh questions about the prospects to enact sweeping health care reform this year."

Mega-dittos for the climate change bill, immigration reform featuring amnesty for invading criminals, and Lord knows how many other evil incantations Obama, Pelosi, and Reid have up their sleazy sleeves.

Forty years, Mr. Carville?

Your gang will be lucky to last forty weeks, given the sputtering and stammering of Obamamania these days.

Are Death Panels Killing Liberalism?










By John W. Lillpop

Even with a super majority in the United States Senate and a robust advantage in the United States House, President Barack Obama is being forced to do what leftists do best: Retreat and Surrender!

Liberals are especially keen on ceding to foreign enemies during time of war; however, this time it is all about domestic policy and yielding to the will of We the People.

We the People, who despite the hideous blathering of Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid and mainstream media lefties, are not Nazis, un-American bird brains, terrorists, or right wing extremists.

Rather, we are concerned Americans who find it damnable that elected representatives opt to add trillions to the national debt by voting for bills of 1,000 pages, or more, which they have not read and do not understand!

Concerned Americans who are repulsed by "Death Panels" for citizens and coverage for illegal aliens.

Concerned Americans who are outraged that the Congressional Budget Office has predicted that ObamaCare would increase medical costs, yet our arrogant president persists with the insane argument that he can add 46 million people, including 20 million illegal aliens, to the mix and reduce costs!

Concerned Americans who are wary after liberals dumped a trillion dollar "stimulus" bill on our backs in the name of creating jobs, when in fact the bill was about pork funding for liberal projects favored by the likes of Nancy Pelosi.

In a broader sense, the question of the day is: Is the decline and fall of Obamacare a harbinger of things to come? Is the insanity called liberalism in its final death throes?

Think of the damage done to America by liberal insanity.

Liberals have:

Demanded that mortgage loans be granted based on race and ethnicity rather than on the ability and willingness to repay, thereby bringing about the great economic meltdown;

Orchestrated the ruination of the automobile industry and the nation's system of education by supporting greedy and unethical labor unions;

Blocked efforts to achieve energy independence for America by opposing oil drilling, construction of additional refinery capacity, and other measures that could help make America less dependent on Middle East oil;

Refused to consider reasonable proposals to rescue Social Security and Medicare, major failed liberal programs;

Sponsored school busing, affirmative action, and other mindless programs that promote divisiveness and mediocrity while punishing excellence.

Perhaps that maniacal anti-American Revered Jeremiah Wright was right when he declared that, "The chickens are coming home to roost!"

If so, the death of liberalism is coming not a moment too soon for the betterment and future of America!

Economy Saved? What About Colonial BancGroup?








By John W. Lillpop

Despite nearly 10 percent unemployment, trillions of dollars added to the exploding national debt, a new and more bloody round of foreclosures on its way, and a stock market more jittery than a woman of the night in church, President Obama insists that he "saved" the American economy.

Ooops!

Apparently, not all bureaucrats received the "I Saved the Economy" message from the hallowed one, leading some pompous scalawags in green eye shades and bearing red ink pens to assault another major bank.

As reported at Mywaynews, in part:

"WASHINGTON (AP) - Regulators on Friday shut down Colonial BancGroup Inc., a big lender in real estate development that marked the biggest U.S. bank failure this year, and a small bank in Pennsylvania.

"The closures boosted to 74 the number of federally insured banks that have failed in 2009.

"The Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. was appointed receiver of Montgomery, Ala.-based Colonial, with about $25 billion in assets, and Dwelling House Savings and Loan Association, located in Pittsburgh. The agency approved the sale of Colonial's $20 billion in deposits and about $22 billion of its assets to BB&T Corp., which is based in Winston-Salem, N.C. The failed bank's 346 branches in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Nevada and Texas will reopen at the normal times starting on Saturday as offices of BB&T, the FDIC said."

The multi-trillion dollar question: Who is going to save America and her economy from our Marxist President and cohorts in Congress?

Hurricane Threats: Is YOUR FEMA Ready, Mr. President?






By John W. Lillpop

Mainstream, leftist media went to extraordinary lengths to vilify and persecute George W. Bush for the administration's response to Katrina.

Ever ready to find racism in everything, the media even stooped so low as to suggest that W. acted slowly and without conviction because only poor black people were floating about aimlessly in the waters of New Orleans.

However, W. is now enjoying retirement in Dallas and we have a new president who is responsible for dealing with major nation tragedies.

Obama's crisis-management skills may be tested in the very near future.

As reported, in part, at Reuters:


"MIAMI (Reuters) - Tropical Storm Claudette, the third of the Atlantic hurricane season, formed on Sunday in the Gulf of Mexico east of the heaviest concentration of U.S. energy platforms, as two other storms, Ana and Bill, raced across the Atlantic.

"The six-month season got off to a slow start with no storms in the first 2-1/2 months but exploded this weekend as three tropical storms formed in just over a day.

"The new system was expected to move ashore in the Florida panhandle, although at least one computer model showed it tracking farther west and hitting land near Mobile, Alabama. The greatest number of offshore oil and gas rigs span the coast from the mouth of Mobile Bay to Texas."

Is YOUR FEMA ready, Mr. President?

Yes, WE THE PEOPLE Can! Obamacare Turning to Mush














By John W. Lillpop

Declaring victory at this juncture would be premature and foolish.

Still, there are growing signs that liberal plans to convert America's health care into a Marxist HMO funded by Chinese communists are being vanquished.

Right wing extremists and good old-fashioned patriots appear to have regained their voices and cajole/bitch powers.

And that is a good thing!

As reported at Yahoo.news, in part:


"WASHINGTON – Bowing to Republican pressure, President Barack Obama's administration signaled on Sunday it is ready to abandon the idea of giving Americans the option of government-run insurance as part of a new health care system.

"Facing mounting opposition to the overhaul, administration officials left open the chance for a compromise with Republicans that would include health insurance cooperatives instead of a government-run plan. Such a concession probably would enrage Obama's liberal supporters but could deliver a much-needed victory on a top domestic priority opposed by GOP lawmakers.

"Officials from both political parties reached across the aisle in an effort to find compromises on proposals they left behind when they returned to their districts for an August recess.

"Obama had sought the government to run a health insurance organization to help cover the nation's almost 50 million uninsured, but he never made it a deal breaker in a broad set of ideas that has Republicans unified in opposition."

---

The above article credits Republicans for nudging our arrogant president in the direction of common sense.Thank God we have conservatives in Congress willing to fight for what is right!

However, town hall "terrorists" and Nazis also deserve kudos.

This battle is far from over, but at the least the enemy is in retreat, for the moment, on one issue.

There is much left to do to save America!

To all of the "right wing extremists," who have worked so hard, and spoken out so vehemently, keep it up! It is working beautifully.


And remember, "YES, WE THE PEOPLE CAN!"

Michael Vick's Return to REAL Inhumane Violence: Football






















Satire By John W. Lillpop

Michael Vick's return to professional football in the employ of the Philadelphia Eages reopens a can of worms, or fleas to be more precise.



Bleeding heart PETA types, re-energized by the Michael Vick signing, have taken to staged hand wringing and crying jags over a few wasted mutts. These outbursts can occur anywhere at any time, but are most likely to crop up whenever two or more television camera crews are spotted at a courthouse or on a football field.

Given their way, PETA would resolve the Vick matter by hanging the once beloved quarterback from a goal post during half time.

75,000 rabid fans would roar their approval in unison as Michael Vick's lifeless remains would be lowered from the goal post, signaling the end of half time festivities and the looming second half kickoff.

Justice is indeed a brutal taskmaster, especially when in the hands of reckless people who hold the lives of dogs, cats, canaries, field mice and rats in greater esteem than that of human beings.

Someone needs to remind PETA and supporters that dogs are just dogs. Dogs have no souls, none will go to heaven, they pay no taxes, and except for a few hundred thousand who are registered Democrats in Nancy Pelosi's congressional district, dogs do not vote or otherwise contribute to our freedom.

Face it, PETA, dogs are dispensable and totally replaceable.

Even the little old lady whose tender heart was nearly ripped out of her wrinkled chest when she accidentally microwaved her pet poodle got over the trauma and found a replacement pet-victim within a couple of days.

Ask her about Alice (the fried poodle) now and that old lady stares blankly into space and asks, "Alice who?"

And so it is, even for people without dementia. Dogs are dogs, but you can replace the darn things at the drop of a hat, or following an unplanned microwave nuking.

Those who really give a tinker's dam about life should abandon all this PETA nonsense and focus instead on saving human lives.

We can start by outlawing pro football.

This so-called sport is nothing more than controlled gang violence staged for the amusement of millions of "fans" who sit on their already elongated posteriors in front of plasma televisions for 10-12 hours every Sunday.

Not content with just eating ungodly amounts of chips, burgers, and hot dogs, and drinking enough beer to float the entire city of Milwaukee across the border into Canada, these Type 2 diabetics and heart disease patients in the making gamble away tens of billions of dollars on who will win and by how many points.

Mind you, this homage is paid to the god of 'blood and sport' each and every Sunday!

The charm of football is best seen in instant replays played in slow motion so that fans can see the spilling of blood and the actual breaking of human necks, arms, backs, and teeth time and time again. Concussions are a fan favorite and are tended to by physicians who are "on call" on the sidelines for $5,000 per game.

Not bad pay for watching a pro football game for a couple of hours while waiting for human disaster to strike.

Bloodthirsty fans can even DVD-tape the carnage for later viewing at church functions, family reunions, weddings, and other occasions held to celebrate traditional American family values.

To be fair, let's level the playing field by legalizing dog fighting and outlawing the far more inhumane and violent blood sport called football.

Do it out of respect and love for Michael Vick and other fun-loving good old boys from the south who simply cannot be expected to know any better!

Racists & Advocates of Violence Need Not Reply

By John W. Lillpop

I am NOT a fan of the policies and ideology of President Barack Obama. In my view, the president is wrong on the major issues of the day, and following his lead would, in my opinion, do great harm to America on many levels.

However, I do NOT personally hate President Barack Obama. I do not really give a damn what the color of his skin happens to be.

I do have enormous disdain for his agenda, which, in my opinion, is radical and not in the best interests of America.

I feel very strongly that this president, with the support of a liberal media and Democrat Congress, imperils America and Americans because there is no effective oversight.

In just seven months, one party rule by liberals has proven the axiom, "Power Corrupts, and Absolute Power Corrupts Absolutely!" to be a most powerful truth.

When I write about Obama and liberals, I sometimes (??) use strong language because I have strong views.

However, I never use vulgar language except an occasional attempt at satirical gimmickry. Nor do I advocate any sort of physical harm against the president or any other elected official, regardless of how liberal.

With the First Amendment still in place, we Americans do not need to resort to racial slurs or threats of violence. Such language is unacceptable and un-American.

From time to time I receive e-mail replies which would seem to diminish the president's worth as a human being because of his race, or which suggest that violence is needed.

Such e-mails and expressions are not welcome in my in box.

Again, Racists & Advocates of Violence Need Not Reply.

Please Stop Whining and Move On, Mr. President!

By John W. Lillpop


With all due respect to President Obama, it is time to stifle the impulse to whine about every sign of opposition to his very radical agenda, and to stop blaming George W. Bush for every bit of bad news.

Claiming credit for every bit of good news while lamenting all the bad as "inherited" may bamboozle dim wits like those at Daily Kos, but is not persuasive to normal Americans.

After all, Mr. Obama, you knew the challenges going in. Your wanted the job, remember?

In fact, you spent $750 million dollars and employed fraud specialists at ACORN to win the job, remember?

Your problem is that you over promised based on your naive over estimation of your own capabilities.

Those who voted for you did so with the expectation that you would work to solve problems, rather than waste valuable time blaming the Bush administration for bequeathing unto you an inherited mess.

At this point, sir, no one much cares about blaming George W. Bush anymore.

It is YOUR economic mess, YOUR exploding deficit, YOUR near 10 percent unemployment, YOUR quagmire in Afghanistan, YOUR terror problem.

Savvy?

New polls indicate that most Americans do not approve of YOUR performance, sir!

The American people want to Move On, sir.

Palin Power to the Rescue!




Sarah Palin Hits the Target Against Obamacare "Death Panels"





By John W. Lillpop

Back in 2006, Nancy Pelosi campaigned on the slogan, "Maybe It Will Take a Woman to Clean the House!"

History will long note that Pelosi got her shot at cleaning the House, and less- than- noble names like Jefferson and Rangel bear testament to her complete failure.

In contrast to the inept lefty from San Francisco, America is blessed to have a former Governor and Vice Presidential candidate eager, willing and able to do battle with the maniacs who have consumed Washington, D.C.

She is Sarah Palin, the most beautiful and intelligent woman on the national political scene. Because of her common sense and conservative views, Palin has been roundly scorned and ridiculed by leftist moonbeam media who favor the Marxist scatter brain, Nancy Pelosi.

Although she no longer holds any elective office or official capacity, Sarah Palin has apparently saved millions of aging Americans from the dreary and inhumane death panels hidden in the bowels of the Obamacare disaster.

Liberals deny that Obamacare includes death panels, but most of those damn fools have not read the 1,000-page monster.

Thank God Sarah Palin HAS read the hideous plan proposed by Barack Obama
, and she has spoken out loud and clear: Death Panels are inhumane and un-American.

Get that Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid? Un-American is when government threatens to wean out the weak and infirm in order to save money.

Un-American is refusing to speak out when the American people are endangered.

Patriotism is speaking in opposition to idiocy and inhumane government!

Palin's death panels analysis hit a bulls eye as reported in part at Yahoo.com:


http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20090813/ap_on_go_co/us_health_care_end_of_life_2

"Key senators are excluding a provision on end-of-life care from health overhaul legislation after language in a House bill caused a furor.

"Senator Chuck Grassley of Iowa, top Republican on the Senate Finance Committee, said in a statement Thursday that the provision had been dropped from consideration because it could be misinterpreted or implemented incorrectly.

"A health care bill passed by three House committees allows Medicare to reimburse doctors for voluntary counseling sessions about end-of-life decisions. But critics have claimed the provision could lead to death panels and euthanasia for seniors."

The sweet scent of victory is in the air on the outrageous Obamacare plan to kill, rather than treat, American seniors.

God Bless Sarah Palin for her heroic actions on behalf of the American people!

Case Against Black Panthers: More "Stupidity," Mr. President?







By John W. Lillpop

President Barack Obama shocked the American people last month with an outrageous smear of a law-abiding police officer, a Caucasian male, who had the audacity to arrest a black male for what seemed like a burglary attempt.

The burglary suspect ultimately turned out to be an esteemed professor at Harvard University and "friend" of Obama. The property in question turned out to be that of the professor.

However, without knowing any of the pertinent facts except that the officer was white and the suspect was a black friend, President Obama decided that the arrest was based on "stupidity," on the part of the arresting officer.

Obama's ill-advised dabbling into racial profiling while on national television cost the president at least one round of drinks at the summit he sponsored to bring the officer and professor together for a "teaching moment" on the White House patio.

Unfortunately for all Americans, black, white, brown, red, and yellow, Obama's callous disregard for a "color blind" system of justice has surfaced in an even more egregious and dangerous case.

As reported at freedomden.blogspot.com, in part, the Obama administration has elected to drop a complaint against the new black panthers for voter intimidation:


http://freedomeden.blogspot.com/2009/07/black-panthers-voter-intimidation-case.html

"From the Washington Times:

"Associate Attorney General Thomas J. Perrelli, the No. 3 official in the Obama Justice Department, was consulted and ultimately approved a decision in May to reverse course and drop a civil complaint accusing three members of the New Black Panther Party of intimidating voters in Philadelphia during November's election, according to interviews.

"The department's career lawyers in the Voting Section of the Civil Rights Division who pursued the complaint for five months had recommended that Justice seek sanctions against the party and three of its members after the government had already won a default judgment in federal court against the men.

"Front-line lawyers were in the final stages of completing that work when they were unexpectedly told by their superiors in late April to seek a delay after a meeting between political appointees and career supervisors, according to federal records and interviews.

"The delay was ordered by then-acting Assistant Attorney General Loretta King after she discussed with Mr. Perrelli concerns about the case during one of their regular review meetings, according to the interviews.

"Ms. King, a career senior executive service official, had been named by President Obama in January to temporarily fill the vacant political position of assistant attorney general for civil rights while a permanent choice could be made.

"She and other career supervisors ultimately recommended dropping the case against two of the men and the party and seeking a restraining order against the one man who wielded a nightstick at the Philadelphia polling place. Mr. Perrelli approved that plan, officials said."

*************

Just what gives, Mr. President?

Has American jurisprudence deteriorated to the point where legal action taken against African -Americans whom intimidate voters no longer actionable, and yet another instance of "stupidity" on the part of authorities?

RIP, the Cult of Obamamania

By John W. Lillpop

Barack Obama's falling star is NOT entirely his fault.

Yes it is true that the man has an ego the size of Mt. Rushmore. He is without question the most narcissistic, egotistical, and arrogant president to have ever occupied the White House.

It is also true that he is an unapologetic Marxist, a man who believes that he has been blessed with the only truth that matters. Only by following his way can America survive and grow, or so he thinks.

However, it was an unhealthy alliance between the mainstream media and vengeful liberals that allowed the Barack Obama myth to grow completely out of control.

That alliance turned an extraordinarily bright and charming man of limited achievement into a combination Messiah and Rock Star who was capable of smiting all of the thorny problems badgering weary Americans.

He would solve the economic crisis quickly and fairly, put desperate Americans back to work, end the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, bring the troops home, act to stop global warming from inflicting further harm on Mother earth, keep people from losing their homes to foreclosure, fix the automobile crisis, and heal the wounds resulting from hundreds of years of racial divide and stress.

When needed, he could even take to the national airwaves to recite bedtime stories full of Hope and more Hope to comfort anguished Americans during difficult times.

According to the mythmakers, Barack Obama was all things to all people. A one-stop Nanny solution to all of life's challenges and setbacks.

The only problem is that the myth was lacking in transparency and viability. Like most of the president's policies and actions, the Obama myth was little more than wishful thinking.

Concerned about 46 million uninsured people?

Solution: Cross your fingers, close your eyes and wish for health care reform and PRESTO! you have added 46 million to the ranks of the insured AND reduced costs in the process!

Concerned about terrorism and American homeland security?

Solution: Simply delete the terms "global war on terror" and "Jihad" from the vernacular, and PRESTO! the war on terror is no more!

Concerned about the exploding national debt?

Solution: Spend another few trillion dollars on unneeded programs and PRESTO! you have bought a way off the debt- begets- debt -begets- debt treadmill and are headed to prosperity and greener grass on the other side, forever!

So it was that the Obama Myth grew and grew, sort of at the same time and pace as the Mexican Swine flu as it were.

Unlike the Mexican flu, however, the Obama myth was without substance.

As someone famous once said about Oakland, California, "There is no there there!"

With Barack Obama, there is no there there, either.

That reality has started to resonate with millions of Americans who finally realize that the promised Messiah is actually a community organizer and Robin Hood want- to- be who does not grasp the laws of supply and demand.

A Robin Hood who spreads poverty rather than wealth!

Barack Obama, it turns out, is just another malcontent elitist with a chip on his shoulder, but without a clue about how to manage the complex and massive issues confronting a nation of three hundred million people.

Again, it is not entirely Obama's fault. We allowed him to hoodwink both himself and we the people at the same time!

Seething Rage Replaces Blind Infatuation

By John W. Lillpop

Barack Obama's falling star is NOT entirely his fault.

Yes it is true that the man has an ego the size of Mt. Rushmore. He is without question the most narcissistic, egotistical, and arrogant president to have occupied the White House during this century.

It is also true that he is an unapologetic Marxist, a man who believes that he has been blessed with the only truth that matters. Only by following his way can America survive and grow, or so he thinks.

However, it was an unhealthy alliance between the mainstream media and vengeful liberals that allowed the Barack Obama myth to grow completely out of control.

That alliance turned an extraordinarily bright and charming man of limited achievement into a combination Messiah and Rock Star who was capable of smiting all of the thorny problems badgering weary Americans.

He would solve the economic crisis quickly and fairly, put desperate Americans back to work, end the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, bring the troops home, act to stop global warming from inflicting further harm on Mother earth, keep people from losing their homes to foreclosure, fix the automobile crisis, and heal the wounds resulting from hundreds of years of racial divide and stress.

When needed, he could even take to the national airwaves to recite bedtime stories full of Hope and more Hope to comfort anguished Americans during difficult times.

According to the mythmakers, Barack Obama was all things to all people. A one-stop Nanny solution to all of life's challenges and setbacks.

The only problem is that the myth was lacking in transparency and viability. Like most of the president's policies and actions, the Obama myth was little more than wishful thinking.

Concerned about 46 million uninsured people?

Solution: Cross your fingers, close your eyes and wish for health care reform and PRESTO! you have added 46 million to the ranks of the insured AND reduced costs in the process!

Concerned about terrorism and American homeland security?

Solution: Simply delete the terms "global war on terror" and "Jihad" from the vernacular, and PRESTO! the war on terror is no more!

Concerned about the exploding national debt?

Solution: Spend another few trillion dollars on unneeded programs and PRESTO! you have bought a way off the debt- begets- debt -begets- debt treadmill and are headed to prosperity and greener grass on the other side, forever!

So it was that the Obama Myth grew and grew, sort of at the same time and pace as the Mexican Swine flu as it were.

Unlike the Mexican flu, however, the Obama myth was without substance.

As someone famous once said about Oakland, California, "There is no there there!"

With Barack Obama, there is no there there, either.

That reality has started to resonate with millions of Americans who finally realize that the promised Messiah is actually a community organizer and Robin Hood want- to- be who does not grasp the laws of supply and demand.

A Robin Hood who spreads poverty rather than wealth!

Barack Obama, it turns out, is just another black kid with a chip on his shoulder, but without a clue about how to manage the complex and massive issues confronting a nation of three hundred million people.

Again, it is not entirely Obama's fault. We allowed him to hoodwink both himself and we the people at the same time!

Liberals Resort to Recycled Mcarthyism









John W. Lillpop


Perhaps lunatics like Nancy Pelosi, Barbara Boxer, and other fascist liberals are correct in asserting that Town Hall meetings have been taken over by Swastika- carrying Nazis, corrupt medical professionals and other un-American characters.

Good call, lefties.

The late and honorable Joseph McCarthy would beam with pride to know that more than 50 years following his death, Mcarthyism is alive and well, driven by a need to stomp out un-American behavior.

However, McCarthy's pride would quickly give way to despair upon learning that the Pelosi-Boxer-Obama brand of Mcarthyism targets patriotic Americans rather than our enemies.

Even so, liberal excesses still elicit nostalgic memories of the notorious House Un-American Activities Committee from the 50s.

President Obama needs to make sure that his administration does not resort to black boot and brown shirt diplomacy in order to control the health care debate.

Perhaps a "Town Hall Czar" is called for, Mr. President?

Has Nancy Pelosi Lost her Bloody Mind?











By John W. Lillpop

Mind you, losing a mind as confused and convoluted as that of Nancy Pelosi would not be that lamentable. It might even be a blessing-- to the Speaker, personally, and to the entire nation.

Still, one must wonder what this woman eats and drinks that is causing such a steady and dramatic deterioration of her political judgment and acumen?

Is she suffering from early Alzheimer's brought on by severe Botox poisoning?

Pelosi's latest idiocy involves spending of $500 million for eight passenger jets the Pentagon does not want.

As reported at WSJ. com, in part:

"Bipartisan opposition is emerging in the Senate to a plan by House lawmakers to spend $550 million for additional passenger jets for senior government officials.

"The resistance to buying eight Gulfstream and Boeing planes comes as members of both chambers of Congress embark on the busiest month of the year for official overseas travel. The plan to upgrade the fleet of government jets, which was included in a broader defense-funding bill, has also sparked criticism from the Pentagon, which has said it doesn't need half of the new jets.

"The whole thing kind of makes me sick to my stomach," said Sen. Claire McCaskill (D., Mo.) in an interview Sunday. "It is evidence that some of the cynicism about Washington is well placed -- that people get out of touch and they spend money like it's Monopoly money."

"Several other senators said they share the concerns and will work to oppose the funding for the jets when the legislation is taken up by the Senate in September, including Sens. John McCain (R., Ariz.,) Jack Reed (D., R.I.), Richard Burr (R., N.C.), Christopher Bond (R., Mo.) and John Thune (R., S.D.).

"The funding for new planes is "a classic example of Congress being out of touch with the realities of deficit spending," said Mr. Thune."

At a time when Americans are struggling to keep their homes and meet their basic living expenses, and when the national deficit has exploded, why would any common sense politician propose to add to the economic chaos for frills?

Answer: Nancy Pelosi is not normal: She is from San Francisco!

Three Utterly Despicable Words












By John W. Lillpop

For nearly seven months, scores of millions of Americans have struggled and strained to incorporate three despicable words into our language and culture.

Three words that, even now, still cause nausea and stomach cramps, particularly among genuine patriots and those who love America.

Three words that cause even the most dedicated advocates of democracy to question whether that form of self-governance can, in fact, work.

Three words that challenge the assumption that the American people are generally wise, prudent and trustworthy.

Three words that suggest that 9/11 never happened.

Three words that would abandon America's commitment to that nation of Israel.

Three words that suggest that sound economic principles and free market capitalism are being abandoned in favor of "spread the wealth" socialism and tens of trillions of national debt.

Three words that embrace a strategy which would reduce America's defense and home land security in order to spend more money on unnecessary and wasteful social programs.

Three words that seek to use the tax code to punish success and achievement in order to reward mediocrity and sloth.

Three words that ridicule the Constitution and the notion that all three branches of government are equal.

Three words that replace judicial restraint and adherence to the Constitution with empathy and affirmative action as standards for selecting Supreme Court nominees.

Three words that embrace the notion that God-fearing, pro-life, pro-America patriots are "right wing extremists."

Three words that suggest that America is to blame for all the world's problems and must, therefore, apologize for Yankee ingenuity, entrepreneurial spirit and innovative; qualities which have made this the greatest nation in human history.

Three words that make "tax and spend" policies mandatory for establishment and maintenance of a fascist nanny state.

Three words that ridicule American borders, language, and culture.

Three words that suspend the "rule of law" in favor of racial politics when it comes to the black panthers and illegal aliens.

Three words that reflect disdain for our dedicated and long time allies in favor of crack pot dictators and communists.

Three words that deny America's Judeo-Christian roots.

Three words that reflect contempt and loathing for American culture, history, and values.

Three words that symbolize the ongoing refusal to accept responsibility and to blame the last administration for all current problems.

Three words that reflect the deep-rooted, hateful racism that causes one to accuse a white police officer of acting "stupidly" simply for doing his job.

The three utterly despicable words? President Barack Obama!

W.'s Birth Certificate Controversy












Satire by John W. Lillpop


Listening to the likes of Senators Barbara Boxer and Harry Reid, and their public relations water carriers like Chris Matthews and Keith Oaferman rant and rave about the "birthers" issue and the insanity of it all, one cannot help but fantasize what the media would have been saying back in 2000 if President-elect George W. Bush' birth certificate popped up as an issue.

Think back for a moment: It is December 12, 2000 and the United States Supreme Court has just ruled 5-4 that Al Gore's hanging chades were unconstitutional, which meant that George W. Bush was the 43rd president of these great United States.

Next, a breaking news headline from CNN's answer to Fox, the irrepressible and flamboyant Wolf Blitzer!

"CNN has it on good authority that newly elected President George W. Bush was actually born in Guadeloupe, Mexico in July of 1946 and is therefore NOT an American citizen.

"Repeating: President George W. Bush was apparently born in a village in Mexico and, according to our sources, is not eligible to serve as president of the United States!"


How might that bit of news go down at MSNBC, NBC, CBS, ABC, and the New York Times?

Would they dismiss it as "rubbish" and idle chatter from a bitter loser? Or would they invade Mexico in great numbers, thus partially canceling the impact of illegal aliens on America?

Would the New York Times run a 100-page expose, complete with color photos and sworn affidavits titled, "Why George W. Bush Talks That Way: He Is Not American!"

60 Minutes with Mike Wallace, a perky 93 back then, would use enhanced interrogation techniques to quiz GOP operatives on the science of forged birth certificates and would conclude: "Folks, this Bush will not hunt!"

On and on, a crescendo of outrage would flood the air waves as leftists would demand that W. release his official birth certificate, which was still being held by the Texas highway patrol as collateral for an unpaid DUI dating back 40 years.

Bush-gate would finally be resolved to the satisfaction of the Bush family, and only the Bush family, when the Mexican government would issue an official, "Declaration of Non-Birth, reading, in Spanish: 'We ain't never heard of no Dubya. He were not born in Mexico--we don't need no stinkin' Bush!"

Thus would end the kerfuffel and President George W. Bush would go on to be a Mexican mole serving in the White House at the behest of the Mexican government and illegal aliens for two terms.

W. would be best remembered as the greatest proponent of amnesty to have ever stolen the US Presidency!

Mr. President: Where Is Your TimeTable for Withdrawal?











By John W. Lillpop

In the eight years that W. was president, liberals chewed up a lot of time and released a lot of hot air into the environment with complaints and whining about a timetable for surrender in Iraq.

Iraq, the war that people like Hillary Clinton supported but then lied about. THAT Iraq!

Now that liberals infest most of Washington, D.C., the American people have a right to know: where is Barack Obama's timetable?

Yes, of course, with respect to Afghanistan and the quagmire that Obama has fostered there.

But on a larger, more pertinent scale, we need to know the timetable for the withdrawal of Barack Obama from the White House.

Waiting until 2012 is NOT an option. We need CHANGE now!

This president needs to bless America with a "Richard Nixon" moment and announce his resignation, effective September 11.

What a symbolic and beautiful gesture that would be!

Imagine the scene: Barack Obama, the first and hopefully last Jihad dude to win the presidency, leaves the lawn of the White House in an Air Force helicopter bound for Midway in Chicago.

Once at a secure heliport at Midway, the deposed president announces his candidacy to succeed Senator Burris, the crook who succeeded him.

That's the way it is done in Chicago, ya know?

Murder and back stabbing are OK, but you must keep the spoils within the family!
