Gloating Over American Superiority in Ice Hockey & Health Care













By John W. Lillpop

It is not often that we Americans gloat with pride at victories over our Canadian brethren.

However, two recent events proved to be too delicious for modesty to prevail.

The first involved the huge upset posted by the US Hockey team over the Canadian team in Vancouver. It was like de ja vu all over again in 1980 when the Americans defeated Russia in a game just slightly over-hyped as the “Miracle on Ice.”

The other newsworthy item is far more serious than a damn hockey match. It involves the whole issue of health care in the United States as opposed to the Canadian system which US leftists are trying to impose on 300 million unwilling American patriots.

As reported, in part, at Goggle news, Newfoundland and Labrador Premier Danny Williams came to the US when his health was on the line:

“An unapologetic Danny Williams says he was aware his trip to the United States for heart surgery earlier this month would spark outcry, but he concluded his personal health trumped any public fallout over the controversial decision.

"This was my heart, my choice and my health," Williams said late Monday from his condominium in Sarasota, Fla.”


What a perfect slogan for defeating ObamaCare and commie medicine:

“It’s my heart (or whatever), my choice, and my health!”

You rock, Danny Williams!

Essential American Truths





























By John W. Lillpop


After watching millions of illegal aliens and advocates protest in the streets of America in recent years, it is clear that many newcomers, including those here legally, need to understand the following essential American truths:

*In 1848, The Treaty of Guadeloupe Hidalgo was ratified by both the U.S. and Mexican Congresses. That Treaty ended any and all claims Mexico had to land now a part of the United States.

* Native American Indians were the original owners of the American southwest. Were there were any valid property rights claims concerning that land, such rights would belong to Native American Indians, not Mexicans.

*America is a sovereign nation, totally independent of Mexico. It has been that way for over 200 years. We intend to keep it that way.

*Brown may be beautiful in Mexico. But in America, we are partial to colors that symbolize freedom under the rule of law. That would be Red, White and Blue.

*In America, Mexico is considered a FOREIGN nation and Spanish is a FOREIGN language.

*America operates according to the rule of law which applies to everyone. This is true whether one is brown, black, yellow, lily-white, red, or an exotic hybrid of lavender and green.

*Being hard-working and good hearted is commendable. But those qualities do NOT entitle anyone to enter America illegally.

*Bilingualism is cool---provided one of the languages is English. Literacy in only Mexican and Spanish is not cool in America.

*Celebrating ones cultural heritage is perfectly fine--as long as it does not interfere with complete and prompt assimilation into American culture.

* Driving while loaded or drunk may be "macho" in Mexico. But in America, driving under the influence is considered stupid and criminal and is not tolerated, regardless of one's country of origin or cultural heritage.

* People here illegally are common criminals, and as such, are most unwelcome. American citizens will fight to have such miscreants deported, regardless of whether or not families are involved. Illegal is illegal, Family or not.

* Demanding that our borders be secured and that the law be enforced is the right of all American citizens; doing so does not make any one a racist or bigot.

*U.S. immigration laws exist to protect American citizens & others here legally, not to facilitate a foreigner’s pursuit of a better life, and

*Those who come to America must adjust to our culture and traditions. We have no obligation or desire to change in deference to foreign newcomers.

Illegal aliens: Take this list with you when you are deported back to Mexico, and share it with other Mexicans considering invading.

Your experience may cause them to reconsider, and that would be a good thing!

Celebrate President’s Day by Remembering Barack Obama’s Many Great Achievements









Satire by John W. Lillpop

Once again America and all of the free world really, is indebted to Vice President Joe Biden for bringing needed attention to a noteworthy achievement that has been systematically usurped by evil conservatives in the mass media.

Specifically, as reported in the Los Angeles Times, our affable VP actually said the following on national television:

“I am very optimistic about -- about Iraq. I mean, this could be one of the great achievements of this administration. You're going to see 90,000 American troops come marching home by the end of the summer. You're going to see a stable government in Iraq that is actually moving toward a representative government”

Good grief, is that the same Iraq that Obama called “dumb” earlier this week? The same Iraq war that Obama and Biden opposed and which was a major factor in cleaning up the US Senate by shipping these two malcontents to the Executive Branch?

There are, of course, many other major Obama achievements that deserve far more attention. Among the “under reported” heroics of The One are these jewels:

* Created and or saved 3.5-4 million new jobs

* Because of the “stimulus” bill, kept unemployment below 8 percent

* Demanded fiscal restraint which lowered the federal deficit and assured China and other creditor nations of America’s continued economic viability

* Terminated waterboarding, closed GITMO, and approved a civilian trial for KSM, all of which “engaged” Al-Queada, thereby reducing the threat of terrorism

* Ended the war in Afghanistan by using talk rather than shock and awe to subdue the enemy

* Officially ended the era of race-based politics by nominating a “wise Latina” to sit on the U.S. Supreme Court

* Passed landmark reforms in health care and immigration policy, leaving only tort reform and open borders as open issues

* Talked smack at the US Supreme Court during the State of the Union, an act of political courage unprecedented in America’s 234-year history

* Secured the 2016 Olympics for Chicago

* By virtue of his intellect and charm in Copenhagen, united diverse world communities into a single force committed to combating global warming, sooner rather than later

* Kept the Senate seat of the late Ted Kennedy in the Democrat Party, safe from the clutches of simple-minded conservatives who drive trucks and pose nude in porno magazines


What would we do without Joe Biden to set the record straight?

And to think, America came within 10 million votes of
installing Sarah Palin as Vice-President!

When It Comes to National Debt, Obama Eschews Transparency





By John W. Lillpop

If ObamaCare had actually made it all the way to Obama’s inbox, America would have been witness to a grotesque ceremony in which Marxists like Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, and The One would have congratulated each other for a “historic moment” in winning one for the underdog under classes,

High fives would have cluttered the air at the White House along with exaggerations and outright lies about how great socialized medicine is for the unwashed masses, although not quite great enough to meet the needs of elitist politicians and their families.

Liberals would have dedicated their win to the memory of the late Ted Kennedy, champion of communist medicine, and would have spared no cost in spreading the news of their greatest victory since the Emancipation Proclamation, which they would claim credit for, even though Abe Lincoln was a Republican.

That is always the way with liberals: Trumpet social programs that use government to “spread the wealth,” especially those involving at least one trillion dollars of taxpayer wealth.

However, the liberal lust for transparency goes missing once the bill for those social programs comes due.

Like for instance, raising the public debt limit from $12.294 trillion to $14.294 trillion.

As reported at ABC News, in part, (1), President Obama decided that paying for all of reckless spending was something that the American people did not need to hear about:


“Behind closed doors and with no cameras present, President Obama signed into law Friday afternoon the bill raising the public debt limit from $12.394 trillion to $14.294 trillion.

“The current national debt is $12.3 trillion. Check out the National Debt Clock, which tells you your share of that -- roughly $40,000 per citizen, $113,000 per taxpayer.”


Once again, the president who promised transparency and open, honest government makes Richard Milhouse Nixon look saintly.

Shrieker Pelosi Heads to Haiti: Why?







Satire by John W. Lillpop


As if the poor people of Haiti have not suffered enough, Nancy Pelosi, Shrieker of the US House, is headed to their god-forsaken island in a gesture that can only add to the misery while loading a few hundred billion more deficit dollars on the backs on American taxpayers.

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

“House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is leading a 12-member congressional delegation to Haiti Friday to assess ways to aid the recovery from a devastating earthquake.

“Pelosi, D-Calif., said the five senators and seven representatives would examine reconstruction efforts and consider long-term assistance for Haiti.

“Sen. George LeMieux of Florida is the sole Republican in the group. Other participants include Sen. Tom Harkin, D-Iowa, chairman of the Senate Health Committee; House Ways and Means Committee chairman Charles Rangel, D-N.Y.; House Transportation Committee chairman James Oberstar, D-Minn.; and House Judiciary Committee Chairman John Conyers, D-Mich.”

Why would anyone in his or her right mind dump characters like Charles Rangel and John Conyers on an unsuspecting populace, and do so in the name of bringing “long term assistance” to the needy?

Surely, there must be another, less charitable reason for Pelosi’s latest boondoggle?

Hint: Washington, D.C. is uninhabitable because of snow and rumors of snow.

Record amounts of snow have done what Republicans have tried, unsuccessfully, to so for months—shut down this Marxist government in order to preserve American liberty and wealth!

It is as though God has had enough and has decided to use snow as a filibuster agent!

Meanwhile, the five day forecast for Port-au-Prince, Haiti calls for temperatures in the 90 degree range.

Perhaps Pelosi is on another “mission” to save the planet from climate change and, given the fact that Washington, D.C. is frozen solid, Madam Shrieker is taking her message to a locale with weather more consistent with her nut ball theories?

After her smashing success in Copenhagen last December, Pelosi has probably found an extra million dollars or so to waste on alcohol and frivolity in Haiti.

She would term it a “humanitarian stimulus” bill for the tourism market in Port-au-Prince, and some leftists would actually believer her.

Or is Pelosi trying to ace out former President Bill Clinton for some free PR and headlines now that he is sidelined by that heart surgery?

Whatever Pelosi’s sinister motive might be, President Obama needs to step in and save America’s reputation.

Why not apologize for Pelosi’s foolish behavior, Mr. President, since compulsive apologizing for American politicians and policies seems to be in your DNA?

Lincoln, Reagan, and Obama: American Presidents with Ties to Illinois










By John W. Lillpop

On February 16, America will celebrate President's Day to honor the 44 men whom have served as president of our great nation.

Presidents Lincoln, Reagan, and Obama all have roots in Illinois.


Abraham Lincoln was born in Kentucky, but moved to Illinois which eventually became renowned as the Land of Lincoln. He is the most beloved of all of America's presidents, past and present.





Ronald Reagan was born in Illinois. He moved to California (Hollywood) and was elected governor of that state for two terms. The Reagan Revolution culminated with Reagan's two-term presidency and the triumph of conservatism over liberal socialism. He is the second most beloved president in American history.






Barack Obama was allegedly born in Hawaii, although that fact remains in dispute. Obama parlayed $750 million dollars, massive voter fraud (ACORN), and a mainstream media afflicted with "thrills running up and down their legs" into a victory for the most liberal candidate in history.

His first year in office has been marked by staggering incompetence, grating arrogance, and an unhealthy obsession with anti-American behavior.



The state of Illinois deserves a special tip of the hat for gifting America with Presidents Lincoln and Reagan.

Thanks, Illinois: Two out of three ain't bad!

Will Obama’s Failure Be a “Teaching Moment” for Conservatives?

By John W. Lillpop

Just fifteen short months ago, Barack Obama was heralded as The One who could, and would, change everything.

He would:

* End the need for war by engaging, rather than fighting, our enemies.

* Repair an utterly devastated economy by spending, spending, and more spending.

* Provide universal health care for all.

* Spread wealth from the haves to the have nots.

* Solve the global warming crisis.

* Cut middle class income taxes.

* Eliminate poverty.

* Reform education.

* Heal the wounds of racial turmoil,

and still have enough time left over to shoot hoops in the White House gym now and again.

He was a light-skinned clone of John F. Kennedy, a black Camelot with no Negro dialect.

That was then, this is now.

Now, the world, and especially the American people, understands that being clean and articulate is simply not enough. Silver tongued oratory, in and of itself, is worth damn little, unless one is a motivational speaker.

Being president of the United States demands that one be capable of intelligent planning and decisive action in a world where simple-minded nice talk and wishful thinking can cost millions of people their lives.

As Barack Obama has learned, the Oval office is located right in the middle of a “no dithering” zone. Inexperienced community organizers rush in at their own peril!

Will Barack Obama’s nightmare be a teaching moment for conservatives and the American people?

Before any candidate, regardless of how handsome or beautiful, or how articulate, is considered as a nominee for the presidency he or she must be thoroughly vetted:

* Does he or she understand the complexities involved in the global economy and America’s role?

* Does he or she understand the geo-political landscape and just how America fits in?

* Does he or she possess enough scientific intelligence to digest and process the complexities of technological issues like global warming?


* Does he or she understand the true evil of Islamofascism and its potential to wreak havoc through terrorism?


Although they are good conservatives, I do not believe that folks like Glenn Beck, Lou Dobbs,Scott Brown, or even Sarah Palin for that matter, possess the depth of experience, knowledge and savvy that America needs in the White House.

Like Barack Obama, each would be out of their league, in over their well-meaning heads.

America can no longer afford to elect people simply because they look or sound good.

We need people who know what they are talking about.

Will conservatives find and nominate such a person in 2012?

What’s So “Super” About the Super Bowl?











Satire by John W. Lillpop

Next to electing anti-American Marxists to positions of high power and authority, the greatest proof that America is in the midst of a massive cultural and social “dumb down” is the annual carnage known euphemistically as the Super Bowl.

Sold to a gullible public as an epic battle between two great sports titans, in truth this “event” is nothing more than another excuse for the unwashed masses to consume ungodly amounts of chips, burgers, and hot dogs, and to swallow enough beer and other forms of alcohol to solve California’s drought problems for a decade or two, provided that reasonable rationing is enforced.

Think about the curious timing of this so-called spectacular: It happens in early February, which gives the masses enough time to recover from the legal, social, marital, and medical upheavals of the next greatest “drunk out “ in American culture, that being New Year’s Eve.

Moreover, by early February most, if not all, of the meaningless New Year “resolutions” will have been abandoned in favor of returning to the wretched excesses that stimulate Type 2 diabetics, heart disease, grotesque obesity, early dementia, incontinence, strokes and alcoholism.

Fancy heath care reform, Mr. President?

Then push Congress to outlaw professional football, especially the Super Bowl, and watch health care costs drop quicker than your approval ratings!

Then get to work on a jobs bill to assist unemployed beer truck drivers, DWI lawyers, endocrinologists, heart specialists and a few million others in the work force that thrive on America’s addiction to debauchery and suicidal over consumption.

Outlawing football would also eliminate reckless gambling, which costs football fanatics tens of billions of dollars each year.

We know that President Obama is obsessed with the evils of blowing money in Las Vegas, so this should be right up his meddling, nanny-state alley!

What about the needs of dedicated football fans, you ask?

Face it, this so-called sport is nothing more than controlled gang violence staged for the amusement of millions of spoiled brats who sit on their already elongated posteriors in front of plasma televisions for 10-12 hours 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.

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.

Heed this clarion call, Mr. President: Outlaw football in order to reform America’s health care system in an intelligent, responsible fashion!

Is President Obama Stable Enough to Serve?






























By John W. Lillpop

During the 2008 presidential campaign, Barack Obama paid exceptional amounts of money to have his image crafted by savvy professionals who made the Democrat appear cool, calm, and collected, a stalwart with both feet squarely on the ground, unflappable, and always in control.


Unfortunately, one year into the Obama presidency, the facts reveals a much different story.

To begin with, the candidate has a history of drug use as chronicled in The Audacity of Hope, in which he confesses to illegal drug experimentation.

As commendable as it is for Obama to voluntarily expose his dirty laundry, it is worth noting that former drug offenders are often quite skilled at manipulating facts to avoid the full, ugly truth from being exposed. Many drastically and deliberately understate the extent of their drug use, and hide other less innocent crimes in the process.

No one is saying that that is the case with the president; however, it is prudent to be alert to all possibilities, especially where the presidency of the United States is concerned.

Furthermore, Obama has apparently been unable to break his addiction to tobacco. Smoking cigarettes is a particularly pernicious weakness that speaks to a character defect of the type that rarely curses strong, capable leaders.

Smoking is a killer of weak community organizers, rather than bold innovators and agents of change.

Smoking cigarettes obviously poses a grave health risk.

Even more importantly, the President of the United States is a role model for young people all over the world; he is supposed to be an inspiration to those starting out in life with stars in their eyes and dreams in their innocent minds.

Seeing an African-American with a cigarette dangling from his mouth, obviously bound by the slavery of tobacco addiction, sends an awful message to our youth, one that makes the Audacity of Hope seem a cruel hoax.

To say nothing of the obvious appearance of impropriety. How can Barack Obama be an effective warrior against Big Tobacco moguls when the man is utterly dependent on their products for his own emotional stability?

How can the Chosen One be the poster child for "Just Say No!" when he himself is a veritable bowl of jelly without a Camel to puff on?

As if Obama's past drug use and current addition to tobacco were not bad enough, it is well known that the 47-year-old is hooked on cell telephones, again almost to the point of addiction.




In fact, unconfirmed rumors suggest that the cauliflower ears sported by the candidate are the direct result of over exposure to cell telephones!

Were it not for the disfiguring effects of constantly being affixed to a cell phone, some scientists claim that Obama's ears would be close to normal.








As it is, Obama seems a dead ringer for that popular Disney figure, Dumbo the Flying elephant.

The fact that the elephant is a copyrighted icon of the Republican Party makes Obama's appearance highly offensive to both liberals and conservatives alike.






In addition to the bad karma wrought by unsightly big ears, there is a credible health risk to take into account.

Specifically, some scientists believe that "The potential link between mobile telephones and brain cancer could be similar to the link between lung cancer and smoking -- something tobacco companies took 50 years to recognize, according to US scientists' warning."

http://afp.google.com/article/ALeqM5i2GtaXt_4waJptMgS8t9Kt2fx7RQ

Besides the obvious health issues involved in drug use, addiction to tobacco, and dangerous overuse of cell phones, a vital question must be answered: Why would one so cool, calm, and collected need drugs, tobacco, or cell phones to function?

Barack Obama seems to need artificial substances and or devices in order to cope.

The big question: Is Barack Obama stable enough to be Commander-in-Chief and holder of the nuclear codes?

Mr. President, You Do Have the Right to Remain Silent!
















Satire By John W. Lillpop

It occurs to me that a lot of President Obama’s problems over the past twelve months have to do with “spontaneous foolishness,” situations in which The One speaks his mind candidly, without giving what he is going to say, and the impact thereof, a great deal of forethought.

Take, for example, Obama’s feeble attempt at humor on the Jay Leno show last March. With millions of curious Americans tuned in to watch their new president unwind, Obama decided, spontaneously it would appear, to ridicule Special Olympics children

Outrage over the president’s foible was palpable, as the nation groaned in misery at Obama’s lack of presidential discretion.

Those on both the left and the right scratched their heads in puzzlement. After all, attacking the disabled was the sort of dumb remark one would expect from W., but the very last thing one would imagine from a Harvard elitist and lefty intellectual.

Incidentally, over the course of eight long years, not once did W. demean the disabled or otherwise attempt to abuse the less fortunate just to get a laugh.

Obama managed to do so after just two months in office.

Then on July 16, Henry Lewis Gates, an African American professor from Harvard and “friend” of the president, was arrested by Sgt. James Crowley, a white police official in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

Without the benefit of first hand knowledge or any sort of grip on the facts involved, Obama’s mouth once again out ran his mind as he accused the white officer of “acting stupidly.”

Chalk up another one for spontaneous foolishness, as the president personally set race relations back 75 years with that race-based tirade.

Everyone knows that Obama was raised in Hawaii. That being the case, one would expect The One to understand that a presidential jab at an economy heavily dependent on tourism would be devastating, regardless of how innocent the intent.

Yet, President Obama has managed to offend Las Vegas, AKA, Sin City, on two separate occasions in his infant presidency.

The last presidential blunder caused a major firestorm, at least among Nevada's elected officials, when The One offered this not-so-sage financial advise:

"When times are tough, you tighten your belts," Obama said. “You don't go buying a boat when you can barely pay your mortgage.” "You don't blow a bunch of cash on Vegas when you're trying to save for college. You prioritize. You make tough choices."

Sin City Mayor Oscar Goodman was not amused, as reported, in part, by the Las Vegas Sun:

“Mayor Oscar Goodman delivered a double-barreled verbal blast at Obama for telling people not to spend their money in Las Vegas during the town hall forum.
“Obama is "no friend to Las Vegas" and "I think he has a psychological hangup about us," Goodman told reporters he gathered into his office at City Hall.”

“Goodman, whose face became red as he spoke at his desk, said he was "incredulous" when he heard that Obama had again attacked the city and that a simply apology was not enough this time to undo the damage."


Psychological hangup, Mr. Mayor?

Hmmmm, very interesting, especially when one considers that Obama’s frugality lecture came right after his deficit-busting, $3.8 trillion dollar budget was dumped in the laps of Congress!

Mind you, no one is suggesting that President Obama is anything akin to the underwear bomber or other terrorists that the Obama administration has decided to Mirandize.

Still, it might be prudent for a few powerful Democrats to pull the president aside and say to him, “Mr. President, you do have the right to remain silent!”

What are the chances of that happening? Let me put it this way:

Don’t blow the family cash on such a wager-- in Las Vegas, or any other venue, for that matter!

Ten Obama Disasters That Have Nothing to Do with W.

By John W. Lillpop

In addition to his dependency on tobacco,President Obama has developed an unhealthy addiction to blaming his failures, past and present, on George W. Bush. From soaring unemployment to the staggering federal deficit, Obama would have the American people believe that the foul odor emanating from the White House is the result of policies and practices inherited from W.

There are, however, a few Obama “originals,” disasters that even the most ardent Obama-mite cannot blame on W.

Ten of the most obvious are:


* Ridiculing disabled children on Jay Leno

* P*****g off entire city of Las Vegas—twice!

* Trying to close GITMO & moving KSM trial to New York

* Reading Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab his Miranda rights

* Lying about the number of jobs created/saved in order to justify “”stimulus” fiasco

* 2016 Olympics in Rio

* Van Jones, Timothy Geithner, Erick Holder, and Rahmn Emanuel

* Inappropriately bowing to a king, an emperor, and a mayor

* Losing Senate seat held by Ted Kennedy for 46 years

* Falling behind Sarah Palin in presidential polls


Bottom line: Obama has been a complete failure on his own even without W.’s help!

“F.....g Retarded” or “F…..g Stupid”? Absolutely!














Satire by John W. Lillpop


Rahm Emanuel may very well qualify as the dumbest,most trashy-mouthed scalawag to have ever served as Chief-of-Staff to any American president in this nation’s 234 year history.

Nonetheless, the man does have a way with words, especially when it comes to describing liberals.

As reported at the Washington Post, in part, (1):


“White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel has apologized for referring to liberals as "retarded" during a strategy session last summer.

"F---ing retarded," the Journal reported Emanuel as saying during the meeting. A report last August recounted Emanuel as having said "f---ing stupid" at the meeting with liberal Democrats.”


There is no need to waste time trying to determine whether Emanuel called liberals “Retarded” or "Stupid.” Fact is, most liberals are retarded AND stupid, which is why they are liberals!

Give Emanuel credit for having the good sense and decency to apologize to the Special Olympics, rather than to liberals.

Nonetheless, Emanuel’s faux pas exposes a larger, much more distressing concern about hypocrites within the Obama administration:

Namely, just about a year ago, President Obama likened his bowling skills to the Special Olympics, an obvious slam at the physically disabled. Now, Obama's Chief-of-Staff joins his boss in beating up on the innocent and defenseless.

Just why do President Obama and his minions take such delight in ridiculing the least able and cursed among us?

A free word of counsel to the Obama-mites: Never refer to Special Olympics children as liberals. That would really be offensive!

Barack Obama: Quintessential Late Developer?















Satire by John W. Lillpop


By the time one attains age 48, most of the fairy tale allusions that one has held about life have been thoroughly debunked and are replaced with the cold hard facts of life.

Most 48 year old adults no longer believe in Santa Clause, the tooth fairy, the Easter Bunny, or big government nannies as the solution to all problems confronting human kind.

There are exceptions, of course. So-called intellectuals raised in a cocoon of elitist liberalism are often late in accepting reality over facts. Even so, some are quite bright, articulate, and even charismatic, despite their withering liberalism.

President Barack Obama is an excellent example. Having turned 48 last August, it is remarkable that such an educated and presumably bright man still believes:


* There is no such thing as evil. All men are imbued with an abundance of good just waiting to be coaxed into action by a clean and articulate man who is light-skinned and who has no Negro dialect.


* All cultures are equal. America is not, and has never been, special.


* Islam is a great religion of peace.

* Government can and should create millions of high-paying jobs that will last forever.

* Higher taxes are needed to curb corporate greed and promote economic growth.


* America can spend its way out of an economic depression.

* The President of the United States is personally and constitutionally obligated to oversee college football and to lobby on behalf of American cities when it comes to hosting the Olympics.

* Multi-billion dollar corporations are run by corrupt and greedy men, a situation that does not pertain to labor unions.


* Caucasian law enforcement authorities always “act stupidly” when dealing with Latinos and African-Americans.


* All conservatives are racist homophobes who hate liberal presidents, especially black ones.


* Spreading the wealth is one of very few Christian principles worth observing.


* Terrorists are actually garden-variety criminals who can be salvaged by reading them their Miranda rights, trying them in civilian courts just like American citizens, and by working to address their self-esteem issues.


* Janet Napolitano, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, Barney Frank, Barbara Boxer, and Timothy Geithner connect with mainstream America and reflect the views and opinions of most thinking Americans.

* The SCOTUS is a gaggle of radical-right extremists that should be watched carefully by Janet Napolitano and the Department of Homeland Security.

* When you think about it, a trillion dollars is not all that more onerous than a billion. Other than a few zeros, that is.


And so it is that our na├»ve president continues to dither away in dream land, all the while musing of the day when he too will be able to “change” anything and everything with just a twitch of his nose, Ala Samatha from Bewitched fame!

Still, there is hope. Perhaps Obama is just a late developer who will mature in wisdom and grace by the time he reaches 50, at which time he will be forced to seek honest employment outside government?
