After 32 days Obama has deigned to make photo op at oil spill.

Many expected him to part the oil from the water as Obamasiah. Others though he would turn to the sea and yell SHAZAM!. A few thought he would turn on the Bat Signal for help. Alas they were all wrong. As they brought King Canute's throne to the water edge and Canute commanded the tide to recede, so in Louisiana they brought the TOTUS ( Teleprompter Of The United States) to the water edge and the Obamasiah spaketh. He "took responsibility" but with an asterick; his administration failed him but it was mainly because Bush had so ill prepared for this catastrophe and he, The Messiah, had inherited this 'mess'.

The governed are stupid and the polititians are mendacious

By the way, where does the government get the money to fund all these immensely useful programs? According to a Fox News poll earlier this year, 65 per cent of Americans understand that the government gets its money from taxpayers, but 24 per cent think the government has “plenty of its own money without using taxpayer dollars.” You can hardly blame them for getting that impression in an age in which there is almost nothing the state won’t pay for.

Quoting Louis Bourdaloue, the celebrated Jesuit priest at the court of Louis XIV, who preached on the four kinds of conscience: 1) the good and peaceful; 2) the good and troubled; 3) the bad and troubled; 4) the bad and peaceful. The first is to be found in Heaven, the second in Purgatory, the third in Hell, and the fourth—the bad but peaceful conscience—sounds awfully like the prevailing condition of the West at twilight. We are remorseful to a fault—indeed, to others’ faults.
Ezra Klein ( Obama acolyte): Obama's finest speeches do not excite. They do not inform. They don't even really inspire. They elevate. They enmesh you in a grander moment, as if history has stopped flowing passively by, and, just for an instant, contracted around you, made you aware of its presence, and your role in it. He is not the Word made flesh, but the triumph of word over flesh, over color, over despair.... Obama is, at his best, able to call us back to our highest selves, to the place where America exists as a glittering ideal, and where we, its honored inhabitants, seem capable of achieving it, and thus of sharing in its meaning and transcendence.

Or, as a less politically sophisticated but no less besotted analyst, actor Will Smith, said last year, "Barack Obama as an idea marks an evolutionary flash point for humanity."

This week Pres. Obama gave commencement address at West Point. As usual his speech, as spun out on his teleprompter, was about himself. After describing how bad off the world he inherited was, he listed the solutions that he was implementing to save the planet. Cadets gave only polite applause as he praised himself. He and his writers had expected wild enthusiasm from the Cadets; so much so that after he listed his accomplishments the teleprompter text had a pause for applause and then his humble follow-up line “ Wow, that was a lot of cheering.” But since there was no cheering he skipped the line but it remained in the pinted text that came from teleprompter. I am sure all those cadets begin their military careers with a black spot on their records. They never forget; I had a notation entered in my 201 file after I had some critical remarks I made to the Secretary of Defence published. They never forget.

Arizona Univ. Graduation School of Social Studies had Chicano Study Professor as graduation speaker. She ripped her version of the new Arizona Immigration Law up and down. Had not read law but knew what it meant. Never mentioned graduates. Honor students cheered wildly. Mediocre students sat there. But, the parents booed so constantly the dean had to ask for civil discourse ( he of course was ignoring that she was insulting them and calling them racists). Best line was an adult shouting “ get a haircut” which drew wild acclamation. She looked like she had a beaver clamped on her head.

New 6th grade social study text covers Declaration of Independence thus. “Furthering the concept that all men are created equal the Declaration” , totally ignoring that this is the FIRST ever political declaration that ‘all men are created equal’. And then moves on quote “ that they are endowed by their .... with certain unalienable rights”. See if you can remember the word that used to be where .... is? School district says certain words cannot be used in text or discussion because it might make some uncomfortable or excluded.

Senate has introduced bill today to have the words “mentally retarded” banned from all new federal laws and all existing laws are to combed for the offending words and are to be replaced by politically correct verbage.

All hail the Age of Obama

The Dalai Lama is a Marxist Idiot

Canada, the world capital of PC, has canceled the re-enactment of the crucial battle on the Plains of Abraham, in 1759, where Wolfe defeated Montcalm and Canada became British and France was banished from the New World ( I am sure you all remember this from elementary school [both mom and I do ]) but now Canada fears the re-enactment would offend Canadians of French descent. Canceling the event is equal to cancelling Gettysburg re-enactment in U.S. Canada already eliminated teaching about it is school.
Mark Steyn responding to Canadian H.S. student trying to get info on Plains of Abraham comments:
“Not so long ago, there were millions of people in every corner of the world who attended schools that taught them that the Britannic inheritance was on balance a good thing as opposed to the root cause of all the planet’s woes. Good for individual liberty, standard of living, constitutional democracy: See, eg, Canada, America, the Bahamas, India, Australia, and even a few francophone redoubts such as Mauritius. But then the alumni of Canada’s residential schools sued for “cultural genocide” (a novel concept), and on the whole you’re safer to steer clear of the whole business. The past didn’t change: It is what it is. But the present changed, and the future will be beyond recognition. A couple of years ago, The Mail On Sunday in London reported as follows:
Schools are dropping controversial subjects from history lessons - such as the Holocaust and the Crusades - because teachers do not want to cause offence, Government research has found ... Some teachers have even dropped the Holocaust completely from lessons over fears that Muslim pupils might express anti-Semitic reactions in class.
This was from a study for the Department of Education, which noted that “teachers and schools avoid emotive and controversial history for a variety of reasons, some of which are well-intentioned. Staff may wish to avoid causing offence or appearing insensitive to individuals or groups in their classes. In particular settings, teachers of history are unwilling to challenge highly contentious or charged versions of history in which pupils are steeped at home, in their community or in a place of worship.”
Cross the Channel to the Netherlands: Different country, same discreet closing of the door on awkward corners of the past. Dutch teachers are wary of mentioning the Second World War because “in particular settings” most pupils don’t believe the Holocaust happened. If there happens to be a Jewish child in the class, it could be a little distressing. But fortunately Europeans won’t have to worry about Jews in the school system much longer. A few weeks ago, during the Israeli incursion into Gaza, Olav Nielsen, headmaster of Humlehave School in Odense, Denmark, announced that he would no longer accept Jewish children. The Copenhagen Post reported that several other principals had also decided that they would no longer let Jews enrol at their schools. Once that’s system up and running, they’ll be able to teach the Second World War without any complicating factors. Likewise, those soi-disant “Church of England” schools in Yorkshire where every student is Muslim will soon be able to resume teaching the Crusades, albeit from a fresh perspective.
In 1984, George Orwell wrote, “Who controls the past controls the future. Who controls the present controls the past.”

From Australia Times ; “TIBETAN spiritual leader the Dalai Lama says he's a Marxist, yet credits capitalism for bringing new freedoms to China, the communist country that exiled him. "Still I am a Marxist," the exiled Tibetan Buddhist leader said in New York, where he arrived today with an entourage of robed monks and a heavy security detail to give a series of paid public lectures.
"(Marxism has) moral ethics, whereas capitalism is only how to make profits," the Dalai Lama, 74, said.”
Said he loves Obama who triumphed in a viciously racist America. Moral ethics killed 100 million people, including his Tibetans, but it is still morally superior to capitalism. You can see why he loves Obama and Obama loves him, both intellectually and morally blind. By the way is his “heavy security detail” there to protect him from moral marxists, terrible capitalists or deranged Tea Partiers?

As every school child knew in my day, both Wolfe and Montcalm died in the battle. Reality really does bite!

Consumerist is up in arms about a new KFC sandwich, which will "start killing people nationwide April 12":

The cosmic arroga Justifying her support of the F.D.A.’s proposal to forcibly limit the amount of salt that Americans consume, Johns Hopkins epidemiologist Cheryl Anderson is quoted in today’s Washington Post declaring that “We can’t just rely on the individual to do something. Food manufacturers have to reduce the amount of sodium in foods.”
The cosmic arrogance of the likes of Dr. Anderson was described by H.L. Mencken:
A certain section of medical opinion, in late years, has succumbed to the messianic delusion. Its spokesmen are not content to deal with the patients who come to them for advice; they conceive it to be their duty to force their advice upon everyone, including especially those who don’t want it. That duty is purely imaginary. It is born of vanity, not of public spirit. The impulse behind it is not altruism, but a mere yearning to run things.

SHRINK WRAPPED: “I have written many times about the tendency of the Narcissist to assume that the mind of the other is a mirror reflection of his own mind. The true Narcissist does not see the "other" as an independent person, complete with agency and desire of his own.]

Regrettably, though, politicians of all stripes regularly promise “solutions.” The reason is plain. Any politician who speaks honestly of tradeoffs would remind voters that he or she is a mere mortal, one with no more power than a dentist or a taxi driver to feed the multitudes with only five loaves and two fish. And such a reminder puts that politician at a crushing disadvantage against opponents who portray themselves as secular saviors.

When do career politicians who owe their celebrity to taking credit for others’ work and placing blame on us for the failure of their laws, rules, and regulations ever ask themselves: What would an honest man do?

Sen. Nelson’s “answer to America’s energy needs” deserves no more attention than does any such prophecy issued by a Ouija board or by a witch doctor reading the entrails of a rooster.

Saul Alinsky “"A Liberal is [a person] who puts his foot down firmly on thin air.") Society's crisis called for Radicals.

Margaret Thatcher, “the problem with socialism is that eventually you run out of other people’s money.”

Jonathan Meades spoke of Thatcher's legacy in Fife: "Fife's mining towns and villages were victims, collateral as they say, of that bloody spat of 25 years ago; - mining might, just might, have been economically exhausted, but it was socially cohesive; it's undeniable that jobs do foment pride, they inculcate an idea of self worth. Finchley was quite incapable of empathy. There is much to be said in favour of inefficient industry, not least that that the human cost of efficiency and adherence to the bottom line does not have to be paid, - nor for that matter does unemployment benefit have to be paid to the tens of thousands rationalised into involuntary idleness. Further, the Finchley faith, which became the enthusiastically adopted cross-party consensus of the past 25 years, the faith that manufacturing industry was an irrelevance, and that an entire economy, a soufflé economy, might be founded on the no-holds-barred selflessness of deregulated debt rights, peddling expensive money, proved to be just that, a faith, an expression of unfounded wishfulness."

"...the educated strata are more gullible than the less educated. The most enthusiastic supporters of Marxism, Nazism, and Fascism were the intellectuals, not the [blue collar folks]."

Obama has raised lying to an art

Budget Director Peter Orszag, grilled about Obama’s pledge not to raise middle-class taxes, left the president wiggle room. Lloyd Grove reports.
Remember President Obama’s supposedly inviolable pledge—repeatedly uttered during the 2008 campaign and at countless town meetings since the inauguration—that he would never raise taxes on middle-class citizens who earn $250,000 a year or less?
This morning at a Manhattan breakfast sponsored by Thomson Reuters, White House Budget Director Peter Orszag threw that pledge out the window. Instead, he described Obama’s “read my lips, no new taxes” pledge as a “stance” and a “preference” that is subject to study by the president’s newly-formed bipartisan Commission on Fiscal Responsibility.
“The president has been very clear about what he prefers,” Orszag said under questioning from Thomson Reuters’ Chrystia Freeland

Lying as an art form. Obama repeatedly and publically swore 95% of Americans would not see a "dimes increase" in their taxes.

City Council hears request from High School seniors in Ap Government class to pass ordinance banning all smoking in vehicles passing through town if there are any minors passengers in vehicle. Logic is ‘ driver has no constitutional right to inflict grievous bodily harm on passengers”. They proposed this ordinance because the City Council had already usurped them and passed an ordinance banning ‘texting while driving’ before the class could introduce their urgent plea to prevent that new social ill. Other towns banning salt, soda , sugar, “Big Macs, ice cream, doughnuts and God knows what else. Of course we all know smokers are criminals. There is no end to sticking noses in other peoples business or pleasure.

“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised
for the good of its victims may be the most
oppressive. It may be better to live under robber
barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The
robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his
cupidity may at some point be satiated; but
those who torment us for our own good, will torment
us without end, for they do so with the approval
of their own conscience.” ~ C.S. Lewis

NATO has created a medal of dishonor called the Courageous Restraint Award, honoring the daring-do of a soldier not using his weapon when faced with personal danger. Obviously Western civilization has vomited its guts. This award, alien to common sense, profiles a stance, the opposite of which enabled the winning of world wars, especially World War II, a true world-wide war. Without restraint, the United States, Australia, Great Britain and Russia ( who hands down wins the Red Star medal for aggression) defeated Hitler and the Nazis. True, millions suffered in the process. But Holland, Belgium, Switzerland, Norway, Italy and especially France, exercised “courageous restraints” in their prosecution of resistance. My suggestion is that NATO award France the 1st posthumous medal for courageous restraint. What once was the Napoleonic empire is long dead and gone.

Unfortunately the world has seen the rise and crescendo of new warriors hell bent on spitting in the face of a NATO’s creative award for cowardice. The unrestrained and downright dangerously courageous Muslim terrorists, specialize in selected terrorist attacks and suicide bombings. No matter the laws, such as in China where guns are forbidden, killings continue apace. Chopping up school children in a mad, terrible, cowardly and uncontrolled rage points out the need for genuine courageous restraint in a rational being. Such a murderer blackens the image of a human soul.

Kagan's nomination

Kagan's nomination is absolute post-post-modern egalitarian brilliance by President Obama. Devoid of a single meaningful accomplishment in a life spanning over five decades (which is remarkable given her Upper West Side and Harvard pedigree), she's the poster child of the anti-exceptionalist.
Her nomination itself signifies the end to an America that differentiates itself based on achievement, quality, uniqueness, drive, character and intelligence. She's the UnterMensch, the antithesis to Nietzsche's differential aspirations. She's the interchangeable part, the anonymous cog, the anonymous participant that is important only through Empire's proclamation. Lacking an Obama appointment, she'd retire a nameless, accomplishmentless being only known for her proclivity for cats.
Conservatives have completely underestimated this President. He's rewriting America on a completely deeper level, changing its fundamental hermeneutic meaning and sociological values. Bravo to the President for his brazen effort expressed through this nomination!

Need to cover Obama’s butt:

The Liberal Press advise to Obama on oil spill: “So what does this mean for the president? It means that he had better cut a more vigorous and public figure along the Gulf — stat — and give the appearance of taking charge of the disaster, while operationally doing no such thing.” And who if not this president is good at giving appearances but doing nothing of substance. Ordinarily this ‘crisis’ would be made for a personality like Obama.

Routinely Education Advocates claim that only higher pay can draw ‘the best and the brightest’ into teaching, and in fact even higher ‘combat pay’ is necessary to draw these super-teachers into the inner city schools. But, the same advocates uniformly oppose ‘merit pay’ or charter schools as unfair to both teachers and students. It is unfair to demand success in teaching for the excess pay need to attract the ‘best and brightest’. Would such standards hold in any situation other than government work? I think the following letter would make any educator squirm if they had a conscience.

Ms. Clara B. Floyd, President
Maryland State Teachers’ Association
Dear Ms. Floyd:
One of your organization’s spokeswomen (speaking today on WTOP radio) explained that performance-based pay for teachers is “unfair” to teachers. The proffered reason is that so much of a child’s intellectual development is affected by home environment, neighborhood influences, and other factors outside of teachers’ control that it is impossible to determine each teacher’s success or failure simply by measuring changes over time in the academic abilities of that teachers’ students.
Fair point. But if it’s true that teachers have so little influence over their students’ learning that it’s “unfair” to tie teacher pay to the measured academic performance of their students, then what’s the use of public schooling? If what students learn or don’t learn is largely outside of the influence of their schoolteachers, why spend all of these resources, year after year, on government schools? Why continue to fund schools if children are so impervious to the fruits of formal education that any amount of knowledge that might actually take hold in their minds as a result of their schooling is too small to be measured?
In short, if your spokeswoman is correct, not only should pleas for performance-based pay for teachers be tossed into history’s dustbin, so, too, should government schooling itself be abandoned – for we can have no reliable evidence that it is serving its stated purpose of educating children.
Donald J. Boudreaux

The education advocates position reminds of a phrase from my youth "Whiteman(Educator) talk with forked tongue"' of course with political correctness we can no longer say that

Existence of Evil

New book out about does evil exist. Author attempts to see difference between true EVIL and mere sinfulness. Author concludes if there is no God, of the Judeo-Christian concept, there can be no evil. If all is matter, materialism, or nature, pantheism, then there is no such thing as evil. All is meaningless, materialism, or just natural, pantheism, then adding a higher concept, like evil, is total nonsense. Only if the Judeo-Christian God exists does evil exist. Analyzing the meaning of that has occupied man for 5,000 years and is far beyond a few comments here.

God either knows everything, or He knows nothing at all,"

A lot of people think religion is something you piece together [from] ideas you think are sweet and that you personally find beneficial," says Mr. Dever. "No. It's like a doctor's report.... It's an objective reality. It's just what is."

“Right. Your feelings are your truth.” say some. Consider, feeling don’t make reality. Reality exists.

“Its’ not denial. I’m just very selective about the reality I accept.” Spoken like an idiot.

I have seen the light at the end of the tunnel and it is the fires of Hell. Anon

This book is a product of its time and does not reflect the same values as it would if it were written today. Parents might wish to discuss with their children how views on race, gender, sexuality, ethnicity, and interpersonal relations have changed since this book was written before allowing them to read this classic work.

The book involved? A reprint of The Constitution, the Declaration of Independence, and the Articles of Confederation. The language is apparently boilerplate from the publisher, and appears on (among other things) The Wind in the Willows, The Federalist Papers, Nietzsche’s Beyond Good and Evil

I think this quote from Winston Churchill’s puts it well: Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery.

Reagan's Rule, otherwise the Iron Law of the State: any Government that can give you everything you want can take from you everything you have.

Expropriate The Expropriators! “In Marxist theory, the Communist Party represented the interests of productive workers, the value of whose labor is expropriated by others. That was wrong, but at least it had a certain coherence. Greek Communists (and more generally, 21st century socialists) stand for something quite different: the ‘right’ to be supported by the labor of others (in the Greek case, Germans); the ‘right’ to be a sponge, forever; the ‘right’ to be an exploiter. It would be hard to think of a less attractive political program.” And yet it is generally regarded by “right-thinking” people as respectable. . . .

VDH on Obama & Obamaism “ I went on at length with all these hypotheses, because it is inexplicable how sane people could do such insane things.”
The rational mind can never penetrate the mind of the marxist or socialist. Thought without contact with reality.

World War II, outskirts of a town in France. “Hundreds of horses, evidently stolen from the French farmers, have been caught in the barrage. They look at us with puzzled, unblaming eyes, whinnying softly as their torn flesh waits for life to drain from it. We are used to the sight of dead and wounded men, but these shuddering animals affect us strangely. Perhaps we have been in the field too long to remember that innocence is also caught in the carnage of war. A horse, trailing entrails from a split stomach, staggers down the side of the road. Mahler, a gentle Texan who lived on a ranch in civilian life, stops; and I hand him the Luger which I took from the German colonel. He goes over to the hose and pats him on the neck. ‘What did they do to you , boy? What did they do?’ he croons. Then he raises the pistol and shoots the horse behind the ear. He hands the pistol back to me without speaking. ‘Keep the gun for a while,’ I say. ‘You’ll need it further on.’ As we move up the road, he begins to talk. ‘I’ve known horses all my life,’ he says; ‘and there’s not one dirty, mean thing about them. They’re too decent to blast each other’s guts out like we’re doing. Makes you ashamed to belong to the human race.’ ‘Yeah, I know horses too. For a time they were the only real friends I had. You couldn’t have had better. If I ever get out of this war, I want to live so far back in the hills that I’ll never see another human being.’ During our advance, he steps stoically over the corpses of Germans to put horses out of their agony with the Luger.

So writes Texas-born war hero, Audie Murphy in his memoir, TO HELL AND BACK. What happened to Mahler? Shortly after this period, Murphy writes that Mahler is hit. “He is on a routine patrol when he is struck in the back by a fragment from an air burst. His spine is injured; and I hear that his legs are paralyzed. Remembering his face as he patted and shot the horses, I wonder whether he will ever ride again.”

We, of course, will never forget our fallen soldiers. Today, when Super Saver won the Kentucky Derby we also remember the fallen horses. We continue to honor and love them and their descendants for their examples of patience, service and beauty.


May Day is now a soft and cuddly day celebrating Fabian socialism, big labor unions and now, illegal immigration. Let us remember what May Day is really about for the last 75 years - the Red banners of May Day stand for bloody Communism. We should interpret the Red as representing the blood of communism’s victims.

May Day began as a holiday for socialists and labor union activists, not just communists. But over time, the date was taken over by the Soviet Union and other communist regimes and used as a propaganda tool to prop up their regimes. I suggest that we instead use it as a day to commemorate those regimes’ millions of victims. The authoritative Black Book of Communism estimates the total at 80 to 100 million dead, greater than that caused by all other twentieth century tyrannies combined. We appropriately have a Holocaust Memorial Day. It is equally appropriate to commemorate the victims of the twentieth century’s other great totalitarian tyranny. And May Day is the most fitting day to do so. I suggest that May Day be turned into Victims of Communism Day....
And today we are ruled by ‘regime’ politicians who revere Marx, Alinsky and Mao. We may soon need more red on the American flag.
