Is the President Too Good for ObamaCare?

By John W. Lillpop

President Obama has made it clear that enactment of health care reform is a make or break proposition for his presidency. He has even indicated that his passion for universal health care is so strong that he might forego ambitions for reelection rather than back down.

He and other liberal politicians have tried to frame the issue as a moral one, a battle in which Democrats have been righteously engaged for decades, only to be stymied by big business and Republican interests more concerned about profits than the health of average Americans.

However, all that alleged liberal compassion has not been powerful enough to cause Democrats to address the devastating impact of money-grubbing lawyers on health care costs. The obvious need for tort reform has been simply ignored, except for an occasional outburst of truth by Howard Dean.

By all means, liberals say, the working classes must be served, provided that the revenue streams which serve as the Democrat party’s cash cow are not threatened, especially with mid-term elections looming.

So much for the moral basis for ObamaCare!

In promoting ObamaCare, the president has promised that his plan will result in lower overall health care costs and will even reduce the federal deficit while “spreading the wealth” of coverage to millions of deserving Americans and millions of not-so-deserving illegal aliens,

ObamaCare is offered as a government solution to a very complex problem made all the more vexing by the greedy drive for obscene profits by medical professionals, pharmaceuticals, insurance companies, and other Republican capitalists.

That is, excepting ambulance chasing lawyers who are much too vital to the liberal agenda to be held accountable for anything except campaign donations.

Liberals fail to see the garbled message that is being delivered to the American people. Namely, greedy insurance companies and medical providers are out, whereas greedy lawyers are always welcome to feed at the public trough of health care compassion!

Overall, an apt description of ObamaCare and the people who support might be: Hypocrisy on steroids!

Think about it.

If President Obama really considered ObamaCare to be a prudent and quality solution, he would commit himself and his family to the same health care plan that he wants to download on 300 million people.

If he really cared, Obama would warn Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid that any bill which does not require the president and members of Congress to participate would the first victim of his unused veto pen.

Realistically, Obama’s liberal arrogance and holier-than-thou belief system will probably prevent him from acting responsibly.

This confirms that in his elitist mindset, Barack Obama sees himself as too good for ObamaCare!

Guess what Mr. President: So are the rest of us!

Hate Christmas and Fireplaces? Welcome to San Francisco!















<





Satire By John W. Lillpop

Just how kooky is San Francisco?

The short answer: Think Nancy Pelosi.

In most civilized communities, Nancy Pelosi would be strapped to a padded cell and given insulin treatment every hour, shock therapy every two hours. For security purposes, she would be banned from stepping foot in any local, state or federal government building for any purpose whatsoever, except to execute documents needed to effect her permanent and irrevocable deportation to India or Pakistan.

But this is San Francisco, nut ball capitol of the civilized world. A place so bizarre that Nancy Pelosi is regarded as a hero, and is reelected time and time again.

Remember that voters in San Francisco made it possible for Pelosi to be within an irregular heartbeat and justifiable impeachment of moving into the Oval Office.

Try saying President Nancy Pelosi twice without a barf bag at the ready!

Still, Nancy Pelosi is not alone in her goofy politics and liberalism bordering on outright insanity. San Francisco's Mayor Gavin Newsom, in conspiracy with the San Francisco Board of Supervisors, have also made history by using Sesame Street as their model in shaping the City Charter.

Among the more egregious decisions by San Francisco elected officials are the following dillies:

* Sanctioned same sex marriages despite state law and a voter mandate.

* Refused to allow the USS Iowa to dock in San Francisco waters.

* Attempted to prevent the world famous Blue Angels from performing.

* Censored conservative radio talk show Michael Savage.

* Tried to convert dog poop into electrical power.

* Approved ID cards for illegal aliens.


And just in time for Christmas, the Lords of Folly have initiated a ban on fireplaces. You see, fireplaces are considered a global warming threat here, even though most family hearths are rarely fired up more than three or four times a year, and then normally only for family photos and videos.

Still, making headlines in the war on global warming is more important than fact, science, or other bothersome details to politicians who share Nancy Pelosi's outrageous political perspective and bias.

As they say, "Only In San Francisco."

To which one can gratefully add, "Thank God!"

A Tale by the Tiger?

Satire by John W. Lillpop


Tiger Woods is inarguably the best and most famous athlete in the word. He is also a gentleman and a terrific role model for American youth irrespective of race or ethnicity.

However, it turns out that Woods is a mere mortal, unlike that other prominent African-American in Washington D.C., who lays claim to deity and messianic privilege.

As presented in his own words at http://web.tigerwoods.com, Tiger made the following statement concerning that crash in Florida at 225 AM the other day:

"As you all know, I had a single-car accident earlier this week, and sustained some injuries. I have some cuts, bruising and right now I'm pretty sore.

“This situation is my fault, and it's obviously embarrassing to my family and me. I'm human and I'm not perfect. I will certainly make sure this doesn't happen again.

“This is a private matter and I want to keep it that way. Although I understand there is curiosity, the many false, unfounded and malicious rumors that are currently circulating about my family and me are irresponsible.

“The only person responsible for the accident is me. My wife, Elin, acted courageously when she saw I was hurt and in trouble. She was the first person to help me. Any other assertion is absolutely false.

“This incident has been stressful and very difficult for Elin, our family and me. I appreciate all the concern and well wishes that we have received. But, I would also ask for some understanding that my family and I deserve some privacy no matter how intrusive some people can be.”

Hmmmm.

If Tiger’s account is gospel truth, one wonders why he has allegedly refused (on three occasions) to consent to an interview with law authorities?

As to his assertion that the mess is a “private matter,” most extra-marital affairs are, although ramming one’s Cadillac into a tree at 2:25 AM is quite extraordinary. Perhaps anger management would help, Tiger?

Someone Please Slay the Climate Change Turkey

By John W. Lillpop

With the exception of several million unlucky turkeys and Tiger Woods, most Americans have a reasonable shot at escaping the Thanksgiving holiday unscathed and not all that worse for the experience.

Tiger will probably be OK as well, eventually, although he will need to explain where the hell he was headed at 2:25 in the morning in his spiffy Cadillac Escalade.

Hint: Given your billion dollar fortune, claiming to be in a hurry to beat the crowds at a Black Friday sale simply will not be credible.

Mrs. Woods, also known as Elin Nordegren, will need to explain a few things as well such as how it was that she mistook Tiger’s head for a driving tee in the wee-wee hours. The Florida Highway Patrol needs to explain why Ms. Nordegren was not handcuffed and carted off to jail for her violent assault on the world’s greatest golfer.

Before America moves on to the full-blown Christmas season, there is one remaining piece of business from Thanksgiving that must be seen to: That grotesque turkey known as Climate Change must be killed and disposed of once and for all.

Thanks to the efforts of Dr. Tim Ball, frequent contributor to CFP, and other honorable scientists, the myth of climate change has been exposed for the fraudulent hot air that it really is.

Leftist politicians like Al Gore, Barbara Boxer, and Barack Obama need to be held accountable for their alarmist rants and raves which have unnecessarily panicked millions of folks into passive acceptance of junk science as a New Age cult religion.

The whole sordid mess needs to be investigated with those found guilty subjected to severe punishment.

Al Gore must be ordered to refund the proceeds from his “An Inconvenient Truth” flick and his book sales, and fitted for an EXTRA EXTRA large orange jumpsuit for his retirement while in federal custody.

Barbara Boxer should be appointed Governor of California, a punishment bordering on “cruel and unusual,” given the mess created by liberals there.

And what about Barack Obama? The president should proceed to Copenhagen as planned, but he should add a stop in Oslo, Norway in order to return that flaky Nobel Peace prize.

With 34,000 additional American troops headed to Afghanistan at his behest, Obama’s Nobel Prize is nearly as much a hoax as the Climate Change turkey!

Good Times Roll for Black Panthers, 9/11 Terrorists, & ACORN

By John W. Lillpop

Attorney General Eric Holder is to justice what Nancy Pelosi is to fiscal responsibility: Less is good; none at all is “progressive” paradise!

Holder’s latest outrage involves ACORN, the street bullies and tramps that used “Chicago tactics” to elect Barack Obama, including voter fraud, illegal campaign practices, prostitution, and probably much worse.

As reported, in part, at the NY Times:

“WASHINGTON — The Justice Department has concluded that the Obama administration can lawfully pay the community group Acorn for services provided under contracts signed before Congress enacted a law banning the government from providing funds to the group.

“The department’s conclusion, laid out in a recently disclosed five-page memorandum from David Barron, the acting assistant attorney general for the Office of Legal Counsel, adds a new wrinkle to a sharp political debate over the antipoverty group’s activities and recent efforts to distance the government from it.

“Mr. Barron said he had based his conclusion on the statute’s phrase “provided to.” This phrase, he said, has no clearly defined meaning in the realm of government spending — unlike such words as “obligate” and “expend.”

“Citing dictionary and thesaurus entries, he said “provided to” could be interpreted as meaning only instances in which an official was making “discretionary choices” about whether to give the group money, rather than instances in which the transfer of funds to Acorn was required to satisfy existing contractual obligations.

“Since there are two possible ways to construe the term “provided to,” Mr. Barron wrote, it makes sense to pick the interpretation that allows the government to avoid breaching contracts.”

Can you imagine? Our Justice Department is wasting valuable taxpayer money debating “provided to” and other word games when the very essence of American democracy is in peril.

Besides, I thought we had moved beyond the Clintonesque practice of parsing and pinching every word and phrase as Slick did with his infamous, “Depends on what the definition of Is is,” which was finally answered by a white spot on a blue dress.

Come on, Mr. Barron, get real!

Why in the world should the US government knowingly fund a group that worked to subvert the rule of law? How in the hell is that a difficult interpretation?

Still, I suppose that this sort of excrement is to be expected from an administration that wants to prosecute and punish former President George W. Bush for using enhanced interrogation techniques to save the City of Los Angeles from KSM and fellow terrorists!

What the hell?

President Obama Gives New Meaning to the N Word

By John W. Lillpop

No, not that N word, for heavens sake!

After all, America has advanced to the point where racial slurs are (thankfully) out of vogue and are recognized as vulgar, vapid and unacceptable expressions of ignorance and hate.

Nonetheless, there are several perfectly appropriate, N words that apply to our president among which the following seem to fit particularly well:


Narcissist

Novice

Naïve

Neophyte

Namby-pamby

Neglectful

Nebulous

Nabob

Notorious

Nag

Narrow minded

Nonsensical

Nervy

Nefarious

Nuisance

Nightmare

Numb, and

Nut (ACRON)

So you see: Any number of N words can be used to characterize President Obama quite well, with no reference whatsoever to his skin pigmentation or race.

My favorite combination: President Obama is a narcsisstic, naive, and neglectful neophyte who has been a nightmare for America!

The tragedy is that this president’s fault lines run deeper and are far more dangerous than skin color!

Obama Flubs Job Count: Why Trust His Health Care Numbers?












By John W. Lillpop

The Obama administration has shown a remarkable inability to apply simple math in order to keep track of the number of jobs created and saved as a result of the stimulus blowout.

Without accusing anyone of anything (except fraud and deceit), it is an incredibly curious fact that the White House consistently reports creation or salvation of jobs in non-existent congressional districts and other anomalies which erroneously inflate the success of the stimulus bill.

Given the administration’s dreadful performance, why would anyone of sound mind and disposition trust anything this president and his like-minded hucksters in congress have to say?

This band of bandits want the American people to believe that they will add 30-40 million uninsured to the ranks of the insured AND, by so doing, cut medical costs and the federal deficit.

Does that make any sense whatsoever?

Is there even one person in America who does not believe that if ObamaCare is enacted it will quickly join social security and Medicare as bankrupt entitlements programs that will add more even more crushing debt to the backs of American taxpayers?

Given the fact that Barack Obama and his administration can not keep track of the number of jobs created or saved, how in the hell they be expected to accurately predict the costs associated with the Marxist HMO that they call health care reform?

Giving the Bird on Dead Turkey Day and Other Holiday Traditions










Satire By John w. Lillpop

Years ago, it came to pass that I discovered that those obligatory family gatherings on big holidays can be more hazardous to one's health than smoking.

Therefore, being of sound mind and addicted to tobacco, I did the prudent thing: Gave up the family gatherings and kept the smokes!

Thirty years and one less lung later, I now realize that giving the Bird to family on Dead Turkey Day may be a ball at the time, but can lead to unintended consequences. Like being written out of a rich aunt's will, for example.

Caution: My comments about family should not be misinterpreted as anti-social in any way.

I genuinely love each and every member of my family and am more than happy to attend important events like funerals. All that I require is sufficient advance notice (ten day minimum), round trip first class fare, lodging in a VIP suite in a five-star hotel with HBO and wet bar room service, and airport limousine service to and from my castle in San Jose, California. Important: Please include a $50.00 tip for the limo driver for each leg of the trip.

Meet those conditions and I will be there with a fresh orchid in my lapel and an appropriately sorrowful look on my face to mourn one less Lillpop polluting the planet.

But please do not ask me to be a pallbearer. With 38 million illegal aliens in the nation, the least my family can do is to find six sober ones (illegals, that is) to carry Uncle Heathen to his eternal resting-place.

Compensate said illegals with a six pack of the best Mexican import beer one can buy at the nearest 7-11. Important note 2: Do NOT hand out the beer until after dear uncle has been safely laid to rest, or his remains may end up in a Tijuana prison along with six drunken Mexican pall bearers and a sleazy madam from the local bar scene.

Holiday tradition has always been vital in my family and has been the "glue" that keeps us together.

For instance, immediately after receiving a Christmas card from a friend or family member, and upon verification of the authenticity of the handwriting, I send out a like-priced card to the sender. I enclose a Flash drive with an Excel spread sheet that lists all of my color preferences and sizes for clothing, and an inventory of all home appliances and electronics (televisions, home sound systems, etc.) with year of purchase, current condition, and dimensions.

A new tradition has been added this year: A "COD Gifts Not Accepted" footnote has been added to the Excel spread sheet.

Another time-honored tradition: An estranged sister has a burning lump of coal fired through her living room window at midnight every Christmas eve. This is my way of helping the poor and stupid stay warm--in keeping with the spirit of the season.

My favorite tradition involves my ex-wife. When Thanksgiving is hosted at my home, I tell the women in attendance to ignore the dirty dishes, greasy cooking pans and spilled food. I tell them I will personally take care of the mess.

Once the crowd has been ushered out, I invite the ex to bring her Brillo pads, pot scrubbers, 409 spray and mop for a quiet evening by the fire. While she cleans the kitchen and dining room, I nap by the fire.

Once the kitchen has been released by the Board of Health, the ex I and top off the evening with our most memorable tradition: We fight for several hours.

It is all quite touching, really. But it is a family tradition that I would not trade for anything.

Except, that is, for a holiday spent strapped to a water board at Guantánamo!

Got water?

Has Obama Forgotten About That Nobel Peace Prize in His Trophy Case?

By John W. Lillpop


America’s Nobel Peace Prize winner and Ditherer-in-chief has apparently forsaken the naive notion that diplomacy and talk can trump armed troops when it comes to foreign entanglements in Muslim waste lands.

At least that is what White House officials are leaking to the media. According to those leaks, President Obama plans to send another 34,000 American troops to Afghanistan in what insiders are calling the “good” surge.

The “bad” surge, it will be remembered, came when W. refused to heed Harry Reid’s “the war is lost” warning and instead sent enough troops to Iraq to win the damn war there.

By contrast, Obama has been stalling on Afghanistan for months, his deliberations made all the more complex by that idiotic and fraudulent Nobel Peace Prize awarded to his undeserving self.

With the Democrat party already in the final stages of divorce over health care reform, Obama’s surge plans will surely push this party of butts over the edge and into open war fare among themselves.

Unable to blame W. for this surge, Obama may soon be forced to taste approval ratings even lower than those of W., at least among liberal, anti-war moon bats.

And how will President Obama pay for this “good” surge?

Cut another 500 billion from Medicare? Raise the Social Security retirement age to 70?

Why not tax abortions? Levy a $5,000 death tax on each aborted fetus and you could end up with more than enough cash to slaughter a few cantankerous Taliban in Afghanistan!

If worse comes to worse, perhaps Obama can ring up Russia’s Michael Gorbachev for help in developing an exit strategy?

Blessing Conservatives Can Give Thanks for at Thanksgiving






















By John W. Lillpop


Although America is under siege and occupied by liberal fascists, conservatives still have much to be thankful for this holiday.

Among the blessings for which right-wing extremists should give thanks:

* Barack Obama’s plummeting approval numbers, indicative of America’s spiritual awakening and intellectual recovery

* Exposure of global warming as yet another monstrous liberal fraud

* Joe Liebermann + the filibuster rule

* Mid-term elections less than a year away + Republican prospects for rescuing America from Marxist extremists

* The rising star of Glenn Beck and banishment of Van Jones

* Tea parties and disruptive town hall meetings

* Election results from New Jersey and Virginia

* William Jefferson and Charlie Rangel are Nancy Pelosi Democrats

* Prospects for booting Chris Dodd, Harry Reid, Roland Burris, and Arlene Specter out of the US Senate in 2010

* Delivery of justice to Beltway sniper John Allen Muhammad

* Voter recognition of the fact that CHANGE does not always mean better or improved

* Janet Napolitano has no twin and is incapable of reproducing

There you go: Just by opening one's mind to the presence of positive Karma, there is plenty to be thankful for.


HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

Book Review: Nancy Pelosi’s, Going Rouge











Satire by John W. Lillpop

In an obvious attempt to upstage Governor Sarah Palin and her fabulously successful Going Rogue, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi has entered the book selling fray with her bleeding heart autobiography, appropriately titled Going Rouge.

While Governor Palin’s book is a rehashing of mundane political experiences from the 2008 presidential campaign, Pelosi’s book is more intellectually stimulating as it is describes the economic, social, and physical challenges that the most powerful woman in America faces in her never-ending journey to mask her 69 years with a lethal combination of botox and prescription cosmetics.

Pelosi provides a fascinating, but heartbreaking, account of her daily regime which requires her to get out of bed at 3am in order to complete her rouge routine which takes five hours to complete.

While Going Rogue is billed as a non-partisan, non-political work, Pelosi does stray a bit when it comes to promoting the trillion dollar health care reform bill that recently passed the House.

According to Pelosi, all women have a constitutional right to look as young as possible regardless of the costs involved, or impact on the federal deficit.

“Looking young is an essential part of the American Dream for women,” Pelosi contends in Fight Wrinkles, Not Foreign Wars, a controversial chapter in which the Speaker takes on President Obama and his Afghanistan war.

Pelosi believes that hundreds of billions of dollars being spent to kill innocent Muslims overseas should be diverted to providing “on-demand” wrinkle removal surgeries for poor women of color, especially those who speak no English and are in America illegally.

Pelosi proudly admits that the health care reform bill passed by the House provides unlimited botox and cosmetic surgery for twenty million old hags that are denied the opportunity to look young because of racism and bigotry.

Covering those twenty million hags under the public option advocated by Pelosi would significantly reduce the cost of being beautiful in America and would take a huge chunk out of the federal deficit as well, according to the Speaker.

Summary: A good read for those who enjoy the rants and raves of a mediocre mind devastated by botox poisoning. Not recommended for those with known self-esteem problems or a history of mental issues.

Obama’s Hair-Brained "Jobs Created" Scheme: Import GITMO Terrorists!















By John W. Lillpop


Reflecting back on that awful September 11, 2001, morning, who would have imagined that the economy of the United States would deteriorate to the point where importing terrorists would become a viable option in addressing sky rocketing unemployment?

Yet, that is precisely the current situation as the trillion dollar “stimulus” bill signed into law by President Obama has failed to produce the 3.5- 4 million new and saved jobs promised by spend happy liberals.

Obama’s jobs fiasco has been complicated further because the administration’s numbers have been found to be inaccurate and unreliable, usually in the direction of overstating the “success” of the stimulus.

Unable to cook the jobs books without being exposed, President Obama has decided to bring real CHANGE to the way the government addresses job creation.

As reported, in part, at ABCnews.com, (1):

“President Obama's Council of Economic Advisers has prepared an economic analysis of job creation if the federal government takes over the underutilized Thomson Correctional Center in Illinois for the purposes of housing detainees currently at Guantanamo Bay as the Obama administration is strongly considering doing.

“Over the first four years, the CEA assessment states, the facility would create 840 - 910 temporary jobs and 3,180 - 3,880 ongoing jobs, increasing local earnings by a cumulative $793 to $1,015 million.

"Approximately 80% of all of the jobs created by the facility will be held by people residing in Illinois, while people in Iowa will fill the remaining jobs," the study states. "These jobs could reduce the unemployment rate in Carroll County, Illinois, where Thomson is located, by 2 to 4 percentage points."


As a spokesperson for Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Kentucky correctly pointed out, this is the same CEA that promised that the stimulus would keep unemployment from exceeding 8 percent!

What will it take to arouse President Obama and his Marxist pals from their desperate and dangerous fantasy thinking?

Rather than importing terrorists or implementing foolish stimulus spending sprees, Obama and pals should immediately cut taxes for both private individuals and business interests.

Obama and the nutty left need to be reminded of a vital truth about America: The economy can and will recover when the government gets the hell out of the way, thereby allowing American ingenuity and grit to take over.

In other words, Mr. President, given your ideological bent, doing precisely nothing would be the very best thing that you could do for America!

By the way, that admonition also applies to the issue of health care!

Higher Taxes on Rich: Discrimination Based on Race?










By John W. Lillpop

Not only do liberals want to tax the so-called rich in order to fund health care for illegal aliens and other uninsured millions, now a prominent member of the U.S. Senate has proposed a tax on the well to do to pay for Obama’s quagmire in Afghanistan.

As reported at Bloomberg.com, in part:

“Higher-income Americans should be taxed to pay for more troops sent to Afghanistan and NATO should provide half of the new soldiers, said Carl Levin, chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee.”

Levin’s un-American scheme may actually find support among leftists who hate the rich more than they hate war!

When will this madness be halted?

When will the Supreme Court step in and rule that taxing the wealthy for every hair-brained scam and failure committed by our inept -president is unconstitutional, un-American, and just plain immoral?

Think about it: Why in the hell should the rich pay for Obama’s war in Afghanistan? Wealthy people already pay the vast majority of the taxes paid to Uncle Sam—what could possibly justify slamming the successful with even more financial pain?

Clearly, liberals like Levin regard the tax code as a means for punishing those who succeed and who are also a vulnerable minority.

Have you launched a new company, hired scores of employees, and earned a handsome income in the process? According to fractured the mind of Carl Levin, you must be punished for outshining the great unwashed masses.

There is a racist element in all this. For the most part, America’s rich are Caucasian which means that they are “fair game” for liberal tax abusers like Obama and Levin.

Why is there no civil liberties group in place to defend the rich against higher taxes and discrimination based on racial profiling?

Open Letter Concerning Health Care Reform

November 19, 2009

Dear Editor,

Back in February, newly- inaugurated President Barack Obama signed into law a nearly-trillion dollar “stimulus” bill which he promised would create or save 3.5 to 4 million jobs. The president urged Congress to pass the bill without delay because of the urgency involved.

According to the president, the stimulus would revive the American economy and prevent unemployment from exceeding 8 percent.

Nine months later, America’s economy continues to hemorrhage jobs, and the national unemployment rate is 10.2 percent, which may actually be closer to 17 percent were the true number of out of work Americans known.

Clearly, the stimulus has failed to produce the promised results. In fact, because the bill has added to exploding federal deficits, many economists believe that the stimulus is, in and of itself, costing America jobs and hindering the prospects for economic recovery.

Unfortunately, the problem has been aggravated by the administration’s jobs creation data which have proven to be inaccurate and unreliable. Those data include claims for creation of jobs in non-existent congressional districts and other irregularities which overstate the actual number of jobs added or saved.

President Obama’s reaction has been to dismiss concerns about the data as of secondary importance by stating that accounting is an “inexact science” and that the focus should be on job growth, rather than details.

That argument begs the obvious question: How can one know when, and if, growth is achieved without accurate accounting data?

The president’s cavalier attitude toward accounting and accountability seems to have spilled over into the current debate over health care reform.

Indeed, the numbers used by President Obama and Democrat supporters simply do not add up!

For example, Democrats would have us believe that 30-40 million uninsured people can be added to the rolls of the insured while at the same time reducing health care costs and the deficit!

While optimism is always a virtue, this type of magical thinking must not be allowed to obscure the fiduciary responsibility that the president and Congress have to the American people.

Government run programs are notorious for being poorly managed and almost always produce huge budget overruns. One need only look at this nation’s bankrupt social security and Medicare entitlements to recognize this truth.

With America still in the clutches of economic disaster, we simply cannot afford another trillion-dollar miscalculation by politicians all too eager to ram socialized medicine down the throats on a skeptical public.

Health care reform as proposed by President Obama and Democrats is unworkable, illogical, unfair, imprudent, and perhaps even unconstitutional.

These proposals must be defeated for the health and well being of over 320 million Americans!

Sincerely,

John W. Lillpop

BHO on KSM: Give Him a Fair Trial, Then We Hang the SOB!










By John W. Lillpop

OK, perhaps the president did not use those exact words, but that is the essence of what our terrorist-coddling, PC addicted ditherer said.

As reported, in part, by National Review:

“In a meeting with the press in China, President Obama said that Khalid Sheikh Mohammed would be ‘convicted’ and had ‘the death penalty applied to him’ . . . and then said he wasn't "pre-judging" the case. He made the second statement after it was pointed out to him — by NBC's Chuck Todd — that the first statement would be taken as the president's interfering in the trial process.

"Obama said that wasn't his intention. I'm sure it wasn't — he's trying to contain the political damage caused by his decision — but that won't matter. He has given the defense its first motion that the executive branch, indeed the president himself, is tainting the jury pool. Nice work.”

So just what did Obama set out to accomplish by moving KSM to a civilian court? Was he attempting to assure the Muslim world that American jurisprudence is based on a presumption of innocence and fairness?

Why then did he “act stupidly” by condemning KSM before the trial even began?

Again, we have another example of this none-too-bright community organizer trying to have it both ways, only to be tripped up by his own hypocrisy.

Comedian Bill Cosby still had the best overall advice for Mr. Obama: Keep your mouth shut, sir!

Obama’s Past Due Epiphany on Federal Debt






















By John W. Lillpop

Consistent with his governing philosophy of accepting responsibility for nothing, President Obama is speaking out against soaring deficits as though he were an innocent bystander as reckless spending pushes America to the brink of being a third-world, failed state.

As reported, in part, at Reuters.com (1):

“President Barack Obama gave his sternest warning yet about the need to contain rising U.S. deficits, saying on Wednesday that if government debt were to pile up too much, it could lead to a double-dip recession.

“With the U.S. unemployment rate at 10.2 percent, Obama told Fox News his administration faces a delicate balance of trying to boost the economy and spur job creation while putting the economy on a path toward long-term deficit reduction.

‘It is important though to recognize if we keep on adding to the debt, even in the midst of this recovery, that at some point, people could lose confidence in the U.S. economy in a way that could actually lead to a double-dip recession,’ he said.”

People losing confidence in the U.S. economy,’ sounds as though Obama was lectured to by President Hu Jintao. Has China threatened to cut America’s credit line, sir?

Obama’s spiritual awakening could have come much sooner, saving America trillions, if the president had only listened to Rush Limbaugh instead of Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi last February.

After all, it was President Obama—not George W. Bush or any other Republican—who signed that foolish stimulus bill into law.

President Obama was in charge when the federal deficit exploded out of control which, among other things, reduced the value of the dollar to play money.

And it is President Obama who continues to push for a health care reform bill and amnesty for illegal aliens that will dump even more trillions onto the backs of American taxpayers.

Time to wake up and smell the coffee, Mr. President! With a simple flick of your veto bic, you can stop the carnage!

Obama by the Numbers: Calculator Abuse or Outright Fraud?









By John W. Lillpop

President Obama seems to have a problem with simple arithmetic. Or does he?

His stimulus package, the first trillion-dollar pig roast in U.S. history, was supposed to produce 3.5 to 4 million jobs. This pork fest was so “right for America” that Congress was enjoined to pass the damn thing without reading or understanding the details.

No time to dither with details, warned America’s war time Ditherer-in-chief, as he painted a verbal picture of America’s economy falling into insolvency without that trillion-dollar nudge from Uncle Sam.

Approve this now, or America will be forced into Chapter 7 bankruptcy advised the president, who chided conservatives for using scare tactics.

In the months since the stimulus was enacted, more and more Americans have lost their jobs. Whereas Obama’s plan was supposed to cut-off unemployment at 8 percent, that grim statistic has risen to 10.2 percent, and as high as seventeen percent when the data are not Obamasized for political purposes.

In addition, because of liberal malfeasance, the federal deficit has mushroomed out of control causing many economists to warn that the Obama stimulus may, in and of itself, be costing America jobs.

So rather than creating or saving jobs, Obama’s plan has apparently produced the exact opposite result.

Stung by the bitter truth, the Obama administration has tried to gloss over the facts, initially by accusing those who challenged the effectiveness of the bill of engaging in “calculator abuse.”

As it turns out, the only calculator abuse worth fretting over originated in the White House: It has been determined that the “jobs created” numbers issued by the White House have been deliberately bloated and exaggerated, including claims for creation of jobs in non-existent counties.

None of this should come as a huge surprise when one considers Obama’s machinations with health care reform data. Remember, Obama has promised to add 46 million uninsured to the rolls of the insured, while reducing health care costs!

Clearly, neither the president nor his leftist cohorts in Congress intend to be open and honest about health care reform and the related costs, or about unemployment.

Which begs the obvious question: Obama by the Numbers-- Calculator Abuse or Outright Fraud?

Will ObamaCare Deny Tests Needed to Keep Abreast of Cancer?

By John W. Lillpop

Just the thought of breast cancer is enough to drive most women to tears, if not suicide. There has never been a more brutal and vicious assault on the human female species.

Over the past decades, many women over 40 have grown accustomed to having an annual mammogram to keep abreast of their vulnerability to this hideous disease. Keeping abreast has help save lives and breasts over the years.

Alas, as reported in part at philly.com, (1) all of that may change if an influential task force has its way:

“Women in their 40s should not automatically be screened for breast cancer, and older women should have a mammogram every other year instead of annually, an influential federal task force has concluded, challenging a bedrock belief of cancer prevention.

“In its first reevaluation of breast-cancer screening since 2002, the panel that sets government policy on prevention recommended the radical change, citing evidence that the potential harm to women having annual exams beginning at age 40 outweighs the benefits.

"We're not saying women shouldn't get screened. Screening does saves lives," said Diana Petitti, vice chairwoman of the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force, which released the recommendations yesterday in a paper being published in today's Annals of Internal Medicine. "But we are recommending against routine screening. There are important and serious negatives or harms that need to be considered carefully."

“The task force's new guidelines, which also recommend against teaching women to do regular self-exams of their breasts and concludes that there is insufficient evidence to continue routine mammograms beyond age 74, immediately triggered intense debate.

“Several patient advocacy groups and many breast-cancer experts praised the shift, saying it represented a growing recognition that more testing, exams, and treatment were not always beneficial and, in fact, could harm patients. Mammograms produce false-positive results in about 10 percent of cases, causing anxiety and often leading to unnecessary follow-up tests and biopsies.

“But the American Cancer Society, the American College of Radiology, and other expert groups condemned the change, saying the benefits of routine mammography had been clearly demonstrated and played a key role in reducing the number of mastectomies and the death toll from one of the most common cancers.

"Tens of thousands of lives are being saved by mammography screening, and these idiots want to do away with it," said Daniel Kopans, a Harvard radiology professor. "It's crazy - unethical, really."

“Oncologist Mary Daly, chair of the clinical genetics department at Fox Chase Cancer Center in Philadelphia, said the reevaluation was flawed by its reliance on data from outmoded technology, namely film mammography. Digital mammograms, the new standard, have reduced the false-positive rate in women under 50.

"I'm not pleased, because I don't want any more women to die of breast cancer than have to," she said. "I'm going to tell my patients to continue getting screened as they have been. I'm willing to sit down and go over the data if they want to."

The big question: Will ObamaCare deny routine mammograms because of cost?

An Obama “Olive Branch” for Osama bin Laden?












Satire by John W. Lillpop

Rumor has it that President Barack Obama has used "back channels" to deliver the following olive branch to Osama bin Laden.

Dear Fellow Muslim:

Praise be to Allah!

It is with great hope and audacity that I present to you an offer for reconciliation between your noble Al-Quaeda operatives and the once-great forces of the United States of America.

Allah willing, of course.

This offer, which must never be made transparent to the media or public, is predicated on the notion that Islam is the new and only super power in the world. It is further understood that the sooner that that reality is accepted by American capitalists and Democracy-crazed politicians, the better it will be for all concerned parties.

As you are doubtless aware, I have taken several steps since January to realign America’s financial and political priorities so as to accommodate a smooth, seamless transition to a Jihad state where Sharia law will replace the archaic and bothersome U.S. Constitution.

Among my early successes is the order to close GITMO, slashing of the U.S. military budget, the requirement that all ‘terrorists’ captured on the battlefield be notified of their Constitutional rights and be offered free legal representation and a free swine flu shot, and on and on it goes.

You can tell that my efforts to “Islamicize” America are spot on because Republicans oppose them vehemently, while Democrats absolutely love them!

My proudest moment to date is the transfer of Khalid Sheikh Mohammed to New York where he will be treated like a U.S. citizen, including processing of his case through the civilian judicial system, a move that damn near guarantees acquittal, or at least an appeal which could take ten years to adjudicate.

According to my Attorney General, Eric Holder, by the year 2019 America should have elected its first openly Jihad president which means that KSM would be pardoned immediately, probably as part of the elected brother’s inaugural speech.

By the way, KSM sends his warm regards and asks that you postpone any further 9/11 attacks on New York until his trial is over. Upon acquittal, KSM plans to move to San Francisco in order to take advantage of that town’s “Sanctuary City” idiocy.

KSM also indicated that he may run for Mayor against that Useful Idiot, Gavin Newsom, although KSM acknowledges that he may too conservative for Nancy Pelosi’s home town. His weight and unsightly facial hair are also issues that he is working on.

It is my sincere hope that this offer will persuade you to unclench your fist and agree to peace with America. To that end, we are prepared to make the following additional concessions, effective upon official acceptance by you:

*All Red States shall be organized into a new United States of Islam, a sovereign and independent nation totally separate from the United States of America;

*U.S. forces to be withdrawn from Afghanistan and Iraq and redeployed to prevent Israel from constructing any new settlements and, ultimately, to remove interloping Jewish occupiers from the new Palestinian state;

*All surviving members of the Bush administration shall be tried as war criminals. Said criminals shall be arrested immediately and sent to GITMO for trials pursuant to Sharia law.

*Former President George W. Bush shall be subjected to enhanced interrogation techniques, including water boarding, until he reveals the location of Saddam’s WMD. We know that Hussein had the WMD, and we suspect that W. has stockpiled the weapons to use in an extortion attempt against my presidency.

With best wishes for a happy and prosperous holiday season, I remain your devoted servant.

BHO

P.S.: Please tell Rashis, your honorable wife # 44, that we should get together some time.

Allah willing, of course!

Obama: Bowing in All the Wrong Places!














By John W. Lillpop

There he goes again!

America’s reputation and image as the world’s sole superpower is once again undermined by President Barack Obama as he assumes his surrender pose, this time to Japanese Emperor Akihito.

Obama’s latest bow follows on the heels of his outrageous display of deference to the King of Saudi Arabia, and is in marked contrast to his utter lack of respect for American institutions, values, leaders, and history since taking office last January.

Perhaps Obama did not get the urgent breaking news message from the 19th century?

Slavery was abolished in 1863, Mr. President, and it is no longer necessary, or even appropriate, for any black American to bow to any foreign ruler or official. That protocol is especially true when one happens to be President of the United States, sir!

This latest faux pus is yet another glaring example of President Obama’s inexperience and, more importantly, his viral hatred of events and people that symbolize America’s moral, military, and economic superiority.

After all, America did win World War 11, you know, to the dismay of liberals all across our great nation.

Furthermore, Japan was on the losing side after President Truman gave in to anti-Japanese racism sparked by American imperialism by dropping A-bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki in order to win the damn war!

That was back in the days when winning the war was considered acceptable and the American way, even to Democrats.

Of course, President Obama was elected because he promised CHANGE in all matters, great and small.

However, how many Americans would have voted for Obama had they known that he would apologize for America’s victory in World War 11 while bowing to the Emperor of Japan?

The larger question: Does this man have any idea how offensive his actions are to U.S. soldiers who fought in World War 11 and to the families of Americans who did not come back, or came back in coffins?

Wll Obama Bow to Khalid Sheikh Mohammed?










By John W. Lillpop

Welcome to the Big Apple, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed!

President Obama may be a brilliant former law professor, gifted community organizer, and silver-tongued orator, but when it comes to insight and sensitivity, this man has all the sophistication of a bloke born and raised in a Kenyan mud hut.

Consider, please: Just as America struggles to recollect its collective wits after a fanatic Muslim gunned down thirteen soldiers in cold blood at Fort Hood, President Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder announce a real shocker:

9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed will be tried in a New York court near the site of the World Trade Center, the most gruesome notch in the holster of the sub-human killer relic from the 7th century.

How does that feel, those of you who lost loved ones on 9/11, or who had family slaughtered at Fort Hood and whose emotional wounds remain agonizingly raw?

Are you comforted by this clue less president’s moves to make Khalid Sheikh Mohammed as comfortable and protected as a citizen, regardless of the pain afflicted on you and other decent Americans?

And to those brave men and women in harm’s way on the ground in Afghanistan, and others who will soon be deployed: How inspired are you by a Commander-in-chief who cannot make a decision and, when he does, inevitably comes down on the side of the thugs assembled on the other side of the battle field to kill and or maim you and your fellow soldiers?

Cheer up, all!

Remember, because of liberal bleeding hearts like Barack Obama, Khalid has been advised of his Miranda rights and has even been given a swine flu shot!

Welcome to New York, Sheikh!

There is a possible upside to Obama’s latest attack on America: Should a New York jury acquit Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, President Obama will have succeeded in permanently destroying the Democrat party.

THAT would be CHANGE that would benefit America for decades!


Khalid Sheikh Mohammed Should Not Be Put to Death!

In the event that Khalid Sheikh Mohammed is convicted of masterminding the 9/11 attacks, he should NOT be put to death.

I repeat, do not kill Khalid Sheikh Mohammed!

Why?

Because Islamofascists like Sheikh Mohammed do not fear death.

In fact, they welcome death as an urgent calling from Allah, not to mention the possibility of spending eternity in orgiastic rapture whilst engaged with 72 virgins, should one be fortunate enough to be designated as a Martyr.

By the way, since the term virgin can be correctly applied only until the young woman has been defrocked, can one assume that Allah provides a fresh supply of sweet young thangs every one and again, based on the Martyr’s libido and staying power?

Which prompts an indelicate, but relevant, question: Do they have Viagra in Muslim heaven?

Whatever, the point is that killing this hairy ball of fat would do nothing but send the fool to Paradise, when, in fact, ‘cruel and unusual punishment’ is clearly called for.

To affect an appropriate measure of justice, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed should tattooed with “Jesus Is My Kind of Jew!” on his forehead and arms, and he should be forced to watch Pat Robertson’s “700 Club” reruns 15 hours a day.

A daily baptizing, suspiciously similar to water boarding, should also be administered until the Sheikh accepts Jesus as his personal savior and Lord, at which point his water boarding should be reduced to every other day.

Pray for the Sheikh: There is simply nothing equivalent to 72 virgins in the Christian faith!

Is "Black Friday" Racist?







By John W. Lillpop

In the summer of 2008, Dallas County commissioners discussing traffic ticket collections were jolted when Commissioner Kenneth Mayfield, who is white, used the term "back hole" to describe the recurring problem of lost paperwork.

Mayfield's statement was immediately challenged by Commissioner John Wiley Price, who is black. Price belted out a loud "Excuse me!" and proceeded to upbraid Mayfield by saying that the problem of lost paperwork was the unwelcome byproduct of a "white hole."

That caused Judge Thomas Jones, who is black, to demand an apology from Mayfield for his racially insensitive analogy.

This dust up provided a keen insight to the precarious state of race relations in America and the obvious need for change.

Those who believe in fairy tales thought that Barack Obama, although the least qualified candidate for the presidency in decades, would bring healing to America in the area of race relations.

Unfortunately, Obama's "post-racial" America is not even close to being reality, partially because of missteps by Obama himself.

It was he who accused a white police officer of "acting stupidly" for arresting a black man who appeared to be involved in a crime.

In addition, the Obama administration's refusal to prosecute New Black Panther members for voter intimidation during the 2008 election serves to deepen the wounds of racial unrest and distrust.

Clearly, when it comes to race relations, Barack Obama is no "healer" nor even a reasonable voice. He would do well to heed the counsel of black entertainer Bill Cosby by keeping his mouth shut.

What to do, then, about the day after Thanksgiving? Traditionally, that day heralds the start of the Christmas shopping season, and is known far and wide as "black Friday."

Is that a racist term?

What of black sheep, black clouds, black box, black humor, black Monday, black magic, and black helicopters?

Indian summers, Mexican stand-offs, and white washes?

All to be stricken from the vocabulary of those who practice PC speech for fear of being of being regarded as racist?

I say to heck with it all.

Let the whiners and weasels debate the issue all they want.

Just don't get in my way when I have that $500 46" HDTV in my sights on Black Friday, mate!

Time for Lou Dobbs to Run for Elective Office!
















By John W. Lillpop

At first blush, the departure of Lou Dobbs from CNN seems disappointing. After all, Dobbs was one of a very few media pundits willing to tell the unvarnished truth about the corrosive and costly impact of illegal immigration on America and American society.

Precisely because he spoke intelligently and forcefully for law and order, American sovereignty, and border security, Dobbs was branded as a racist by hateful racist groups like La Raza and by mindless lefties in the media like Keith Olbermann at MSNBC.

In fact, Lou Dobbs presented the facts in a logical and measured manner. Of course he was opposed to the invasion of America by illegal aliens. Anyone with a lick of sense and pride in America would feel the same.

Dobbs leaves CNN just as that network crashes to the bottom of the network ratings, driven into submission by the “fair and balanced” folks at FOX News. Clearly, Dobbs needed a better platform from which to deliver his pro-America message.

Lou Dobbs should expand his campaign to the Halls of Congress by seeking elective office in 2010. What a perfect time for a real conservative to join the GOP revolution in what promises to be a banner year!

Word has it that a corrupt Democrat from Connecticut by the name of Christopher Dodd can be beaten and his seat in the United States Senate returned to responsible hands.

Why not replace Dodd with Dobbs, Connecticut?

There are other races that Dobbs would be very competitive in next year. His sights, however, should be set on 2012 and the United States presidency.

After just 10 months of the Obama, Pelosi, and Reid government, America has had its fill of liberal nonsense. Imagine how much more intense the anti-incumbent sentiment will be in three years?

Lou Dobbs is needed to restore common sense and intelligence to American politics.

You go, Lou Dobbs!

Has Obama’s Silly Nobel Prize Driven Him to Perpetual Dither?

By John W. Lillpop

Pity poor President Barack Obama. Even when he wins, he can’t help but lose.

Take Obama’s undeserved and silly Nobel Peace Prize for instance. Meddling leftists in Norway decided to play politics by awarding the prize to a do nothing, know nothing community organizer as a definitive message concerning the presidency of George W. Bush.

The message? “Thank God he is gone!”

So delighted were the socialists in Norway with W’s departure that they would have awarded the prize to Sesame’s Street’s Big Bird just to humiliate the former president.

With Obama’s deification on January 20, it became unnecessary to use the Bird to give W. the Bird. Obama filled the role nicely, and with gusto, because he actually believes he deserved the award, a mind warp that would never entrap Big Bird!

Obama’s narcissist bathing in the glory of international acclaim has, however, been cut short by the R word: Reality.

For all of his talk and double talk about diplomacy and peace, Barack Obama was elected president, a position that imposes upon him the responsibilities of Commander-in-chief.

Like it or not, that role involves more than spouting off about the failures of George W. Bush.

Indeed, after his swearing in, Obama was given the Nuclear Codes. Having the codes does not mean that diplomacy can never be pursued, but it does mean that the holder has one hell of a lot more responsibility than simply talking about talking.

America’s Commander-in-chief needs to be decisive and tough in order to protect 300 million Americans. Pandering to nut balls on the far left about peace and harmony may help raise money during the campaign, but it has little or no value when dealing with the regimes of North Korea, Iran, or Russia.

Decisive and tough is hardly the image that President Obama has portrayed thus far. It turns out that the president has rejected all of the options presented to him about Afghanistan by the best and brightest military professionals in the nation.

Apparently, none of the options meet all of Obama’s criteria:

* Must be acceptable to Nancy Pelosi and Cindy Sheehan;

* Must be deficit neutral;

* Must allow the president to continue to blame W. for all wars, past, present, and future, and

* Must be bullet proof from those in Norway who might like to take back the Nobel Prize.

Tough criteria? Yes, indeed, but nobody said being president AND Nobel Peace Prize winner was an easy task!

It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like—Hanukah, Kwanzaa, the Holidays?

By John W. Lillpop

With Thanksgiving Day just a fortnight away, it must be getting close to---dare I say it? ---Christmas!

Yes, ladies and gentlemen, the day set aside to commemorate the birth and ministry of Jesus Christ.

Amazingly enough, His birthday remains an official public holiday, despite President Obama’s foolish attempt to convince the world that America is no longer a Christian nation.

Observant citizens will note that America has no companion holiday to celebrate Kwanzaa, Hanukah, or Ramadan. Obviously, this makes us a despicable nation of evil zealots who discriminate based on religion.

Thanksgiving also marks the unofficial start to the Christian-bashing season. It is during this special time of the year that dim witted losers protest the presence of Christmas trees at airports, thereby denying the overwhelming majority of travelers the pleasure of seeing these precious, traditional symbols of the season.

It is this time of year when the sight of a simple manager scene in a public venue can send an ACLU lawyer into a towering rage and to the nearest court house to seek relief from the unconstitutional violation of the separation Church and state.

Showing Jesus in swaddling clothes in a manager is unconstitutional?

Egad, what would the founders think?

Wishing a co-worker “Merry Christmas!” on the job can lead to blockbuster lawsuits and allegations of harassment and insensitivity, if you can imagine.

Only at this time of year are Christmas classics like Oh, Little Town of Bethlehem, Silent Night, and Noel more offensive than rap music with its profane and misogynist lyrics.

Despite all the agitation and silliness of the anti-Christmas crowd, Christmas is still the greatest celebration of the greatest birth and life in history!

How do you say Reconquesta in Arabic?










Satire by John W. Lillpop


As an English-speaking Caucasian, I have learned to accept the
fact that America is in transition, and is likely to become less and less Anglo.

The only remaining issue seems to be the competition between Islamofascists and Mexican illegal aliens. Which group will take over America and really ruin things?

Or will illegal aliens and Jihadists form a coalition and convert the United States into a Muslim version of Mexico--an Islamic-Latino third-world terrorist state?

Before those hot-blooded Latinos and short-fused Islamic extremists merge into one big dysfunctional family, several pressing issues will need to be resolved. Those issues include:

* What will the national language be--Arabic or Mexican? Or will they create a hybrid called Arabmex?

* Will the official national headdress be the sombrero or the exploding turban?

* Will women be required to wear mantillas or burkas?

* Will Mexican parents be required to raise their children to be suicide bombers?

* Will Mexican teens be shipped to Israeli pizza parlors on missions to blow themselves up for Allah?

* Will Muslim teens join street gangs, wear their baseball caps backward and jeans ten inches too low, and drive 1955 "Schevies" with boom boxes loud enough to register on the Richter?

* Will Muslim men be required to eat greasy tacos and get drunk every weekend?

* Will the official weapon of choice for domestic violence be switchblade knifes or mosque-certified axes?

* Will Mexicans have to buy prayer rugs, face Mecca, and pray to Allah five times a day? In Arabic?

* Will Muslims set up employment vigils outside Home Depot stores?

* Will adulterous Mexican women be stoned to death?

* Will adulterous Muslim women be able to achieve redemption through confession to a priest, rather than through public stoning?

* Will Muslims celebrate with piñatas and do the “Mexican Hat Dance?” at Christmas? Will the pinatas explode on contact?

* Will the faithful travel to mosques on camels or donkeys?

* Will Mexican martyrs be rewarded with 72 virgins upon reaching heaven? Where will God and or Allah find 72 Mexican virgins?

All of this pessimism can be summarized in one simple question:

How do you say Reconquesta in Arabic?

Guns Don’t Kill People, Islamofascists Do!

By John W. Lillpop

How ironic that as America struggles to cope with the insane slaughter of thirteen people at Fort Hood by a Muslim fanatic, the so-called “Beltway Sniper,” another convert to the Religion of Peace, was put to death for killing ten people in 2002.

As reported, in part, at wtopnews.com:

“JARRATT, Va. (AP) - John Allen Muhammad, the mastermind behind the sniper attacks that left 10 dead, was executed Tuesday night as relatives of the victims watched, reliving the killing spree that terrorized the Washington metro area for three weeks in October 2002.

“He looked calm and stoic, but was twitching and blinking as the injections began, defiant to the end, refusing to utter any final words. Victims' families sat behind glass while watching the execution, separated from the rest of the 27 witnesses.”

Meanwhile, new developments concerning Major Nidal Malik Hasan indicate that he warned military officials of the dangers associated with admitting Muslims into the services.

As reported at foxnews.com, in part:

“According to The Washington Post, Major Nidal Malik Hasan was supposed to make a presentation on a medical topic during his senior year as a psychiatric resident at Walter Reed Medical Center.

“Instead, Hasan lectured his supervisors and two dozen mental health staff members on Islam, homicide bombings and threats the military could encounter from Muslims conflicted about fighting against other Muslims in Iraq and Afghanistan.

“A source who attended the presentation told the paper, "It was really strange. The senior doctors looked really upset."

“The Powerpoint, entitled, "The Koranic World View As It Relates to Muslims in the U.S. Military," consisted of 50 slides, according to a copy obtained by the Post.

‘It's getting harder and harder for Muslims in the service to morally justify being in a military that seems constantly engaged against fellow Muslims,’ Hasan said in the presentation.

“Under a slide titled "Comments," he wrote: "If Muslim groups can convince Muslims that they are fighting for God against injustices of the 'infidels'; i.e.: enemies of Islam, then Muslims can become a potent adversary i.e.: suicide bombing, etc." [sic]

“The last bullet point on that page reads simply: ‘We love death more then [sic] you love life!"

That last quote is a non-politically correct summary of the Muslim mindset that should be heeded by those responsible for Homeland Security and the national defense.

Unfortunately, with people like Janet Napolitano in positions of authority, this government is more interested in coddling terrorists than protecting Americans.

How much more carnage must occur before the Obama administration will take terrorism at the hands of Islamofascists seriously?

Breaking News: Not All Racial Profiling Is Un-American

By John W. Lillpop


In post-rational America, racial profiling has become the ‘go to’ defense for those who are as guilty as hell but need some way to escape justice.

The lengths to which some minorities will go to exploit racial profiling are both maddening and mind boggling.

An example, as reported, in part, at discriminations.com back in 2004:

“OAKLAND -- Oakland police officers have stopped setting up roadblocks to check whether drivers are under the influence because of a rash of complaints from the Latino community and City Council President Ignacio De La Fuente.

“The checkpoints, which allow officers to demand licenses and proof of insurance, are an effective way to get drunken drivers off Oakland's streets, city leaders agree. But the checks also have ensnared dozens of illegal immigrants who are not licensed to drive yet otherwise obey the law.”

Why would any responsible, thinking adult conclude that protecting illegal immigrants is a greater priority than getting drunken drivers off the road? What would motivate such stupidity?

The answer: Hispanic racism.

Ignacio De La Fuente was so obsessed with protecting fellow Hispanics that he lost sight of the needs of the community at large.

Unfortunately, De La Fuente is hardly alone in his willingness
to sacrifice the greater good in order to carry water for illegal aliens because those criminals happen to be Hispanic.

As reported, in part, at rollcall.com, the Hispanic caucus in the House of Representatives threatened to sabotage Nancy Pelosi’s
health care blowout in order to advance the cause of illegal aliens:

“Congressional Hispanic Caucus Chairwoman Nydia Velázquez (D-N.Y.) warned President Barack Obama on Thursday that 20 members of her caucus are prepared to vote against the House Democratic health care plan if language restricting the rights of illegal immigrants to buy insurance is added to the bill.

“Velázquez met with Obama at the White House with a handful of other CHC members, including House Democratic Caucus Vice Chairman Xavier Becerra (D-Calif.) and Reps. Charlie Gonzalez (D-Texas) and Lucille Roybal-Allard (D-Calif.).”

Imagine that! Velazquez was willing to abandon health care reform for 300 million Americans in order to protect people who do not belong in the country to begin with, and who certainly do not deserve insurance coverage,

Why? Because of the Hispanic ethnicity of the invading criminals.

Apparently, racial profiling is not a bad thing when used to seat Hispanics at the public trough!

Karl Marx Would Be Proud, But Not Giddy

John W. Lillpop

Given the high five mania and celebratory gloating by liberals after the US House voted to install Marxist medicine on Saturday night, one would have thought that the United States had just officially lost the war in Afghanistan or that the Berlin Wall had been re-erected.

From death panels to waiting lists, liberal extremists and one RINO got their way while following Speaker Nancy Pelosi over the cliff into oblivion. The final tally was 220-215, not much of a margin of victory for a speaker obsessed with the notion that she has a mandate to install socialized medicine.

Please understand Nancy Pelosi. This crown jewel of liberal malfeasance actually believes that she is main stream Americana. From her perspective, voters are ravenous for CHANGE that will remake all of America into the image of San Francisco.

There is some good news from Pelosi’s Saturday Night Massacre: 39 members of her own party refused to abandon common sense and fiscal responsibility.

Those thinking patriots, representing 15 percent of the Democrat count in Pelosi’s House, prove that even Democrats can see the truth and act responsibly, every once in a while.

Notwithstanding the broad smiles and V signs all around Speaker Pelosi following the carnage on Saturday night, the brutal truth is that much of the Pelosi Manifesto will never become law.

There is another potent body of Congress called the United States Senate which must also approve health care reform. In her haste to promote herself as a heroine-nanny for the great unwashed masses, Madam Speaker seems to have overlooked the fact that the Senate will most likely obliterate or downgrade many of the more outrageous and costly provisions in the Pelosi Manifesto.

Mind you, Karl Marx himself would be proud of Speaker Pelosi and her anti-American minions after Saturday night.

Unlike Pelosi, however, Karl Marx would understand the reality involved, and, thus, would not be giddy.

Obama-speak Versus W. -Talk



Angels Gather for a Barack Obama Speech






By John W. Lillpop

The thing is, with President Bush you never quite knew for sure what he said. Asking him for a translation was a colossal waste of time, because W. himself could not untangle his garbled English into meaningful dialog.

Still, with the exception of excessive spending and pandering to illegal aliens, it was not all that important to understand W's exact words. He usually came down on the right side of issues like terrorism, taxes, and Supreme Court nominees, his corrupted English notwithstanding.

With the not-so-new kid now on the block at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, the situation could not be more different.

When President Obama speaks, the angels of Heaven sing his praise and celebrate the glory of his words. This president is able to move mountains (but not real patriots with his high-minded eloquence.

Not since the days of Adolph Hitler has a world leader used his speaking ability to run thrills up and down the legs of political pundits and anti-semites as well.

There is rarely any doubt about what President Obama has just said, so clear and precise is his delivery. As it turns out, that is his biggest problem.

Obama's speech, though pristine and Camelot-like, falls prey to his ideological bent, which means another dose of wrong-minded Marxism.

Which is worse for America: A bumbling, English-challenged president who often gets it right in spite of himself, or a Hitler clone who always gets it wrong despite his gifted oratory?

Obama: Don’t ‘Jump to Conclusions’ About Nidal Malik Hasan

By John W. Lillpop

As the facts surrounding the slaughter of thirteen people at Fort Hood continue to unfold, President Obama urged restraint.

As reported, in part, at breitbart.com: (1), the president tried to calm the American people:

“President Barack Obama said Friday the entire nation is grieving for those slain at Fort Hood, and he urged people not to jump to conclusions while law enforcement officers investigate the shootings.

“Obama met Friday morning with FBI Director Robert Mueller and other federal leaders to get an update on what they've learned. Thirteen people were killed and 30 others injured in the shooting rampage at the Texas Army post on Thursday. The suspected shooter is an Army psychiatrist; his motive remains unclear.

‘We don't know all the answers yet. And I would caution against jumping to conclusions until we have all the facts,’ Obama said in a Rose Garden statement otherwise devoted to the economy.”

The president is right, of course. Jumping to conclusions, like accusing a white police officer of “acting stupidly” for simply doing his job, is un-American.

Without jumping to conclusions, one can consider the pertinent facts known thus far:

* The suspected shooter, Major Nidal Malik Hasan is a Muslim, a member of the ‘Religion of Peace’

* Hasan was about to be deployed to fight in Obama’s war in Afghanistan.

While investigating this act of terrorism, President Obama needs to answer a basic question about United States military policy: Why are Muslims allowed to serve at all, and why are they allowed access to lethal weapons?

Asking that question may be loathsome to politically correct liberals, but it needs to be asked and answered. ASAP!

American lives are at risk, and the time for simple minded political correctness and pandering has long since passed.

This was an act of terrorism by an Islamic extremist and it must be treated as such by Obama and the Democrats who control Congress!

What About the Constitutional “Right” to Dental Health?













By John W. Lillpop

While liberals like President Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi, and Harry Reid plot the next three of four trillion dollar “reform” rip-off programs, scorers of millions of innocent Americans suffer in agony.

This is so because, in their angst to pass health care reform and reward trial lawyers/donors in time for the next election cycle, lefties have overlooked a genuine constitutional benefit owed anyone residing in America, regardless of immigration or criminal status: That is the “right” to dental health.

Dental health includes freedom from the pain of rotten molars, unattended cavities, unsightly chipped teeth, the emotional devastation of less than pearly white teeth, and the socially unacceptable condition known as halitosis, more commonly referred to as “bad breath” by the unwashed masses.

Any one who has been to a dentist lately knows that affordable dental care is fairy tale to all but the very rich. Most modern dentists are taught to extract “healthy” teeth immediately and to leave the rotting ones in place as a way of assuring a steady cash flow for the next several years.

Paying for dental care without robbing a bank or extorting funds from the estate of a deceased parent is impossible and is not recommended for anyone with a queasy stomach.

If ever there were a “broken” system, it is America’s dental care!

So, Ms. Pelosi, what say ye about adding dental health to you reform blow out? Doing so would only add a trillion dollars or so to your deficit buster, a modest amount that can be recovered by levying a luxury profits tax on right wing dentists!

As such, that would be a win-win for liberals and their rotten mouthed constituents.

Moving on to the next nectar of neglect: Where is the constitutional right to erectile function in the Pelosi bill?

How in the hell can the American male be guaranteed the right to pursue happiness if this vital function is wonky?

Solution: Add erectile function to the reform bill, a steal at one-half trillion dollars. Pay for this right by applying a windfall profits tax on the makers on condoms and other prophylactics.

Other “rights” that need immediate attention:

Right to high-speed Internet connectivity;

Right to psychological counseling and free match making services for those who are HIV positive and shy;

Right to earthquake insurance for residents of California, Oregon, and Washington state;

Right to health insurance for one’s pets;

Right to Rush Limbaugh-free High Definition radio, and

Right to free round trip transportation to and from the polls on Election Day for those who intend to cast a straight Democrat ballot.

Face it, America: There is hardly a good, service or privilege on the planet that is not a fundamental right, at least in the convoluted minds of liberals like Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid.

According to the Curious Mind of Nancy Pelosi, Winning Is…















Satire by John W. Lillpop



This reporter has it on good authority that Nancy Pelosi, Shrieker of the U.S. House, has never been invited to a Mensa meeting.

There is a perfectly good reason for Pelosi’s exclusion: She has the IQ of a bag of polluted San Francisco fog, and all the charm and appeal of a pitcher of recycled tobacco spit.

Pelosi’s latest faux pas involves the election results from Tuesday night.

Most normal people, regardless of party or ideological affiliation, would agree that President Obama and, liberals in general, suffered sharp rebukes in New Jersey and Virginia, and that said rebukes should be heeded as a warning.

That is not how Nancy Pelosi sees it. According to Madam Speaker, the Democrats were the real winners on Tuesday evening.

As reported, in part, at thehill.com:

“House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said she sees no need to be worried by Republican victories in two governors’ races last night, because for her the news was all good.

"From my perspective, we won last night," said Pelosi (D-Calif.), referring to the New York special election for the House seat previously held by Republican Rep. John McHugh. "We had one race were engaged in."


Mind you, this is the same wacky lefty who believes that the Catholic Church has never made its views on abortion known.

The same botox-blasted character who called enforcing U.S. immigration laws “un-American.”

Pelosi is the same out-of-touch “leader” who branded as Nazis those town hall revilers who opposed the socialist agenda of Barack Obama.

Unfortunately, Pelosi’s curious mind is responsible for that 1,900 page monster gratuitously called Health Care Reform.

In fact, Pelosi’s prescription for America is a sinister attempt to impose nanny-state communism which, if actually codified into law, would bankrupt the nation while improving heath care for none, save a few million illegal aliens who should be deported rather than subsidized by taxpayers.

But back to the definition of winning, from the curious mind of Nancy Pelosi.

Using Pelosi’s warped logic, one would be forced to conclude that:

The Philadelphia Philles, not the New York Yankees, are 2009 World Series Champions;

President Obama won the 2016 Olympics for the city of Chicago;

10 percent unemployment is a huge victory for American workers;

Exploding federal deficits are a big win for economic recovery and future growth; and

Sky-high disapproval ratings for Congress are to be celebrated as a sign that liberalism is here to stay!

Nancy Pelosi: Only in San Francisco could this disturbed and mentally crippled old woman be elected to a position of responsibility.

God speed November, 2010, so that this pitiful lady can be shoved into retirement!

President Obama Did Not Watch Election Returns?

By John W. Lillpop

As the first significant “test” of his omnipotence and Messianic powers was being tallied, we are told that President Obama was so detached that he did not even watch the returns.

According to Robert Gibbs, White House spin doctor and BS Recycle Czar, as reported at Politico, in part:

“Hours after urging reporters not to draw sweeping conclusions from Tuesday's gubernatorial elections in New Jersey and Virginia, White House press secretary Robert Gibbs told POLITICO President Barack Obama wasn't even keeping an eye on the results.

’He's not watching returns,’ Gibbs said.

”The Obama administration and other top Democrats have consistently tried to play down the import of this week's contests, which Republicans have sought to portray as a referendum on the Democratic-led government in Washington.”

”In Tuesday's White House press briefing, Gibbs dismissed suggestions that the two governor's races and a special election in upstate New York could be a preview of the 2010 congressional midterms.

’I don't think, looking at the two gubernatorial races, you can draw with any great insight what's going to happen a year from now,’ he said.

”But while Obama may not have been following Tuesday's returns, he and Vice President Joe Biden campaigned repeatedly for candidates in all three of the night's key races.”

Imagine that! One would have thought that, at the very least, the president would have tuned in for a quick peek at the polls, just to see how his hug-buddy Jon Corzine was doing in New Jersey.

Any modestly decent fellow would have been curious to know how his ideological pal was faring in the war against Republicanism and evil in the Garden state.

Which begs the question: What on earth could have distracted the president so completely on election night?

Perhaps he was cogitating over the difficult decisions that must be made concerning Afghanistan?

Or was he thinking about how to save face now that Congressional Democrats are saying that the president will not get his coveted health care reform bill this year after all?

Was he busy plotting another two or three bankruptcies to force private enterprises out of business? Like he promised to do to the coal industry, and has done to domestic auto makers?

Or were the president and his lady celebrating their victory from a year ago, and too damn absorbed to be bothered with Democrats taking gas in Virginia and New Jersey?

Whatever, one thing is sure: If Democrats had won in Virginia and New Jersey, Gibbs would have made the following press release, or something very similar:

“President Obama and key advisors have watched the returns on CNN since the polls closed in Virginia at 7PM.

“The president is obviously delighted that his personal campaigning was able to make such a difference in boosting Messrs. Corzine and Deeds to the winner’s circles in their respective states.

“The president believes that these two important victories are a clear and unambiguous confirmation of the fact that the American people are pleased with the change that has been brought to bear in just 10 months. He also believes that the momentum gained tonight will be invaluable in passing health care reform and other items on his agenda for the people of America.”

“Thank you, and good night!”

Funny how unabridged reality can spoil a president’s television viewing for an entire evening!

Sally Lillpop: AKA, the Purrfect Mouse Repellent












By John W. Lillpop


Being of an affectionate nature when it comes to most of God's creatures, the unexpected arrival of several infant mice in my home two seasons ago presented a vexing dilemma.

On the one hand, I find it cruel and unusual to lure an unsuspecting mouse into the traditional trap, which terminates the critter's life with little or no uncertainty, but which also leaves an unsightly, bloody mess.

With all of the technological advances available these days, one wonders why lethal injection is not an option for executing mice foolish enough to invade one's castle?

On the other hand, mice are an unseemly lot and are among the most grotesque and notoriously arrogant interlopers in California. Only illegal aliens steal more, carry more disease, and are more unwelcome.

The bottom line: The mice had to go, sans the guts and gore.

It was with that objective that I visited an animal shelter in search of a killer cat to keep yet another litter of narcissistic mice from taking over my palace.

The cat I had in mind was to provide zero tolerance for offending mice, without directly involving me. There was to be no blood on my hands from the ugly genocide that was sure to unfold in the wee hours of the night, while I lie fast asleep and without blame.

Those looking to adopt an animal should be aware of the fact that animal shelters run by city governments are decadent bureaucracies, better known for the number of files they stuff with worthless paperwork, than for the number of animals they save from extinction.

Consequently, before I could actually interview a prospective feline, there was the obligatory criminal background check, a credit check, a sanity screening, and a morality hearing to endure. In addition, it was necessary to provide three references, all of whom had to be known PETA extremists.

References with dossiers graced by documented threats against the life and well being of Michael Vick were a real plus.

Looking back, I realize that getting a visa in the name of Osama bin Laden would be far less problematic than adopting a cat from a city animal shelter.

Still, one cannot be too careful when it comes to protecting innocent cats.

In any event, after I passed all of the intrusive checks, the animal attendant escorted me to the cat colony in which was housed the kitties and cats waiting for new homes.

It was love at first sight and sound when the attendant handed me a ball of purring fur, also know as a Tabby cat. She was a four-month-old kitty with orange fur, big brown eyes, and the most- cuddly demeanor imaginable.

The moment I took Panda (her maiden, before Lillpop, name) into my arms, she purred heavily and non-stop as if to say, "It's about time, John! Let's get out of this dungeon and go home!"

And so we did. Me and this precious bundle of feline ferocity at least that is what she was hired to be. From that first day, however, Panda seemed more content to sleep, answer the calls of nature, and purr incessantly.

Not much killer there, thought I. Would she attack a mouse, or would she run like hell should one stick its ugly head out in defiance?

After a day or so, it seemed fitting to change her name from Panda which an associate objected to because of memories of a romance gone sour. Sally was chosen as her new moniker because--hell, there is no good reason. Why would one need a good reason for naming a damn cat whatsoever one wants?

Sally is her name and it shall always be so.

At first, Sally weighed only three pounds and was so small that she often fell over on her side after a particularly profound sneeze. This antic made for a lot of rip-roaring laughter from her human host, but Sally never seemed to appreciate the humor in her end over flip flops.

It quickly became obvious that Sally was not just another abandoned kitty with the good fortune to be adopted. For instance, Sally refused, and continues to refuse, all animal treats, as well as human food such as chicken and fish. Fresh milk? Forget it. This cat eats only dry cat food. Period.

Another peculiar fact: Sally will sit for hours without touching her food. But the moment that I enter the room, she immediately races to the feeding bowl and starts eating. Extreme manners or extreme neurosis?

Sally has a very strong personality. In human parlance, it's her way or the highway. Example: Petting is allowed, but only on her terms. She sleeps in my bed on a cat blanket, but not too close. Sally is affectionate, when she wants to be.

And what of Sally's mouse-killing accomplishments? Since her arrival, no new mice have showed up. But then again, I have not seen her hunt down any mice either.

Which is all good as far as I am concerned--no new mice and a great pet as well!
