There’s always someone lurking in the bushes, as it were, waiting to be “Oh ffended”  … waiting to pounce!

We have sunk to a new low in sniveling Political Correctness.  Yes boys ‘n girls our ubiquitous Chia pets cannot mingle one with the other because the new Obama Chia pet is racist!  SAY WHAT? What lunatic hospital let these people out?  Can you people get a life?


Walgreens has removed a Barack Obama version of the Chia Pet from its stores.

The Deerfield-headquartered drugstore chain made the move Friday after getting a few complaints about the item since the product”s April 1 launch, a spokeswoman said.

Chia founder Joseph Pedott — a Chicago native whose San Francisco-based Joseph Enterprises provides local jobs for the disabled — said he was inspired to create the Obama head as a show of patriotism

Maybe its just me, but I didn’t find the Obama Chia offensive.  After all haven’t most of us received  one of these little critters at least once in out lives?  Usually you could tell it was from someone who decided to go to a drugstore for a last minute gift (under $10 bucks)  and saw the Chia displays at the checkout counter.

Personally in my humble opinion,  if the manufacturers had come out with one of those wall mounted singing fishes, put an afro on it, and called it an Obama Singing Bass . . . that might have been what?  Funny, perhaps?

At least the White House didn’t put out a press release condemning the the newest addition to American kitsch.  AND blessedly, Joe Biden did not regale us with  his story about how Chia Pet people came to him with an idea for a Biden Buffoon Chia and he said, “look behind you Mr. President no one is following.”  Opps,  looks like Joe got his stories mixed up, again.

Revelation 13:17 … and that no one may buy or sell except one that has the mark, or the name of the beast, for it is the number of a man.  His number is 666

Well, before anyone wants to jump ugly . . .

let me say up front I wasn’t looking for this quote.  I happened to hear it today while I was channel surfing.I usually don’t quote Bible verses, but this one resonated today given the fact that (Hail Caesar) Geithner wants even more control over our financial institutions and the economy.

Since I’ve quoted from the one above let me also quote from my favorite Bible verse, as well.

Micah 6:8 … What does the Lord require of you?  To love justice, to show mercy, and to walk humbly with Him.

Sometimes one needs to take a break, step back, and make assessments. After having taken a step out the Obama maelstrom for a few days, I wish could say I felt this country was heading in the right direction. I can’t because it isn’t.

During mass yesterday, interspersed between the prayers and music for Palm Sunday, were thoughts of the fraud Obama and his hitman Tim “gimme more power’ Geithner.

Until such time as the evidence proves contrary, Obama remains the first man to fraudulently secure the office of  POTUS knowing from the beginning that he was always  ineligible.

His election to the highest office in the land remains a travesty.  I could almost find a way to make this abomination less disgusting if his policies were good for this country or if he was a good president; neither is true. The truth is his economic policies are tearing the country into pieces.

SO,  here we are with  Geithner seizing control of the nation’s banks through extortion (take the TARP money, or else!)  using fear and yelling “chaos, crisis, hurry…. hurry….NOW!” The faux President fires the head of General Motors, and the Congress tries to pass a retroactive law taxing bonuses of AIG executives at a 90% rate . . . and the MSM is talking about Michele’s short sleeve dresses!

I have but two questions:

  1. Where in the Constitution does the faux President, or any president have the power or authority to fire an executive of any company (public or private)? SHOW ME THE ARTICLE OR PARAGRAPH THAT ENUMERATES THIS.
  2. Where in the Constitution is it written that Tim Geithner has the power or authority to force the nation’s bankers to take the TARP money, or to determine how a bank will be run, or to refuse to allow a bank to re-pay the TARP funds? SHOW ME THE ARTICLE OR PARAGRAPH THAT ENUMERATES THIS.

Did you find it?  Didn’t think so!

By now most people have either  read or heard about the Obamas’ shabby treatment of England’s  Prime Minister Brown, one of America’s resolute allies.  I promised myself that I would let this pass, but I can’t.  There are faux pas and then there are faux pas, and this one was a dozy . . . by the Obamas . . . the duo who wants us to think Jack and Jackie every time we see them!

Candidly, I am ashamed that the Mr. Obama, America’s faux President, behaved in such a low class and boorish manner. You better believe the Kennedys’ would never have behaved with such a stunning lack of sophistication. This is from Canada Free Press:

Obama, the man that would “fix” our (America’s) “bad image” with the rest of the world, has just dissed Churchill after only one month in office. […] the British government has been made nervous about the relationship between England and the U.S. because of the casual return (given to President Bush immediately after 9/11 as sign of solidarity between our countries) of their generously loaned Churchill bust.

It isn’t just the shabby thoughtless gifts that the Obamas exchanged with the Prime Minister and his wife, it is the obvious fact that Obama and his team were clueless & didn’t recognize that the stagecraft needed for a visit from the British Prime Minister required the same careful stagecraft and planning as was displayed  by Obama during his run up to the presidency.

British officials admit that the White House and US State Department staff was utterly bemused by complaints that the Prime Minister should have been granted full-blown press conference and a formal dinner, as has been customary. They concede that Obama aides seemed unfamiliar with the expectations that surround a major visit by a British prime minister.

(Say what?)

[…] the mood of the event was at times strained, as Mr. Brown handed over carefully selected gifts, including a pen holder made from the wood of a warship that helped stamp out the slave trade, a sister ship of the vessel from which timbers were taken to build Mr. Obama’s Oval Office desk.  Mr. Obama’s gift in return, a collection of Hollywood film DVDs that could have been bought from any high street store, looked like the kind of thing the White House might hand out to the visiting head of a minor African state.

My immediate thought, after hearing about the Hollywood collection of DVD’s (presented in a format that the British PM cannot play in England) was hey, “why not also give Prime Minister Brown and his wife coupons for Pizza Hut or Kentucky Fried Chicken?”  At least the coupons could be redeemed!  After all, what kid doesn’t like pizza?  Maybe the DVD collection can be used for a door stop.

Is it necessary to point out that:

“British Prime ministers are just not treated this way by American presidents.  They are personally greeted at the airport. They are treated to state dinners or overnights at Camp David. Their private meetings are always followed by a long joint press conference in which members of each nation’s press get to question both heads of state at length.”

Well, apparently it is necessary to point this out to the Obamas. Here’s something else, “he made Prime Minister Brown look foolish back home, something that will not be lost on other heads of state.”

Making a guest look foolish is simply unforgivable, particularly when the guest is a representative of one of America’s most steadfast allies.  One wants to scream, “Are you kidding me?  Obama, are you so lame, so dumb, so self-absorbed as to not get this basic point?”

Memo to the Obamas: visits by Heads of State and British Prime ministers are not to be taken casually. Visits of this nature demand that you, America’s representative, present the very best of our country.These visits can either cement relationships or destroy them.

These visits should be handled with grace and dignity (DVD’s don’t qualify as dignified) and you should be aware that they require statesmanship, staging, and clarity of purpose.

BTW, Barack, you know those little gauze covers placed on lemon halves that sometimes accompany meals? They are to be left on when squeezing the lemon. It is gauche to remove them and demonstrates a lack of breeding.

Also, I bet if Michelle takes the time to look, she can find a book on proper White House etiquette that you two can read, before you welcome guests to our White House, again!  I’m not sure, but I think Letitia Baldrige may still be available for advice.

bailoutObama has been in office less than 60 days and the damage he and his team have wrought on the nation’s economy verges on the criminal. The market is in free fall. Just yesterday, the DOW dropped another 300 points, reaching depths not seen for decades and the lowest in 14 years. There’s no end in sight and why should there be? Obama has done his very best to talk the economy down using fear and warning of catastrophe . . . recently 25 times in one 20 minute speech!

I find myself wanting to yell, “Can’t anyone take that damn microphone out of his hands?” Every time he opens his mouth the markets go down! Investors on Wall Street and people on Main Street have no confidence in this scatterbrain incoherent policy; and rightfully so. The Obama team’s attempts at radical transformation of this country from capitalism to socialism are being soundly rejected by millions who know that the Obama stimulus plan stinks that the bailout plans are pure insanity, fiscal suicide.

So we are faced with Obama’s ambition and the Democrats greed . . . evil twins working to end this country’s greatness while stomping on the Constitution. But do we have to endure this wholesale destruction of our economy until the next election; maybe not.

There may be a way to stop the hemorrhaging of confidence and dollars from the U.S. treasury. Obama’s presidency needs to be aborted. Let me very clear. I am not advocating anything other than a lawful removal of the Usurper and the end of this fraudulent presidency. How?

In point of fact, if we who oppose his faux presidency on Constitutional grounds are proven to have been correct from the “get go” any and all legislation passed in a phony president’s term of office would be null and void never having been legal from the onset. Let me emphasize that point yet again. The $787 trillion legislation . . . the 1,000 page bill no one in Congress read and passed would not have the force and effect of law because Obama’s presidency was never legitimate.

Quoting from Dr. Edwin Vieira, Jr., Ph.D., J.D.

Fifth, as nothing but an usurper (if he becomes one), Obama will have no conceivable authority “to make Treaties”, or to “nominate, and * * * appoint Ambassadors, other public Ministers and Consuls, Judges of the Supreme Court, and all other Officers of the United States, whose Appointments are not * * * otherwise provided for [in the Constitution]” (Article II, Section 2, Clause 2). And therefore any “Treaties” or “nominat[ions], and * * * appoint[ments]” he purports to “make” will be void ab initio, no matter what the Senate does, because the Senate can neither authorize an usurper to take such actions in the first place, nor thereafter ratify them. One need not be a lawyer to foresee what further, perhaps irremediable, chaos must ensue if an usurper, even with “the Advice and Consent of the Senate”, unconstitutionally “appoint[s] * * * Judges of the Supreme Court” whose votes thereafter make up the majorities that wrongly decide critical “Cases” of constitutional law. Sixth, and perhaps most importantly, Congress can pass no law while an usurper pretends to occupy “the Office of President.” The Constitution provides that “[e]very Bill which shall have passed the House of Representatives and the Senate, shall, before it become a Law, be presented to the President of the United States” (Article I, Section 7, Clause 2). Not to an usurper posturing as “the President of the United States,” but to the true and rightful President. If no such true and rightful President occupies the White House, no “Bill” will or can, “before it become a Law, be presented to [him].” If no “Bill” is so presented, no “Bill” will or can become a “Law.” And any purported “Law” that the usurper “approve[s]” and “sign[s],” or that Congress passes over the usurper’s “Objections,” will be a nullity. Thus, if Obama deceitfully “enters office” as an usurper, Congress will be rendered effectively impotent for as long as it acquiesces in his pretenses as “President.”

Sixth, and perhaps most importantly, Congress can pass no law while an usurper pretends to occupy “the Office of President. The Constitution provides that “[e]very Bill which shall have passed the House of Representatives and the Senate, shall, before it become a Law, be presented to the President of the United States” (Article I, Section 7, Clause 2). Not to an usurper posturing as “the President of the United States,” but to the true and rightful President. If no such true and rightful President occupies the White House, no “Bill” will or can, “before it become a Law, be presented to [him].” If no “Bill” is so presented, no “Bill” will or can become a “Law.” And any purported “Law” that the usurper “approve[s]” and “sign[s],” or that Congress passes over the usurper’s “Objections,” will be a nullity. Thus, if Obama deceitfully “enters office” as an usurper, Congress will be rendered effectively impotent for as long as it acquiesces in his pretenses as “President.”

Yesterday World Net Daily reported that Obama’s eligibility is topping AOL News:

Internet giant America Online headlined its daily news coverage today with a story and polls covering the “Birthers,” a group of people it describes as “fringe conservatives convinced that Barack Obama is ineligible to be president because of supposed questions surrounding his birth status.”

Let me state for record. I am neither a conservative, or a tin foil wearing wingnut, or any other pejorative descriptor typically used to isolate anyone who opposes Obama and his poisonous policies. I don’t believe in conspiracy theories except for Kennedy’s assassination.

Thus far the MSM and pro-Obama sites would have you believe that only a small fringe element is concerned about Obama’s eligibility. Nothing could be farther from the truth. We are young, old, rich, poor, male, female, and our political positions and affiliations wide and varied. But we all agree on one thing. Obama needs to produce the records that show unequivocally that he has always been eligible to hold the office of POTUS. There is no longer any other option . . . this story is not going away.

If you hate Obama’s financial policies join us and let’s find out once and for all if he was ever eligible to hold office. If it turns out he has always been eligible, we are stuck with him for the foreseeable future. If it turns out he was never eligible, everything out of legal necessity, would be put on hold until a legitimate person was elected to hold the office.

BTW, that doesn’t mean Biden would automatically assume the office since he was chosen by an ineligible Obama. If you are a Obama supporter, join us, if for no other reason than to “shut all birthers up!”

The citizens of this country and the world deserve the truth. The time has long since passed!

Keith Olbermann . . . bad actor and cartoon character is at it again! He called Senator Richard Shelby a traitor last week. Yes, a traitor, because Shelby had the temerity to answer a constituent’s question about Obama’s eligibility to hold the office of POTUS . Hat tip to a recent post on The Betrayal Blog which brought my attention to this. I stopped watching Olbermann & MSNBC months ago and would have missed this. Olbermann’s harangues and constant ravings having become so predictable, silly, and (worse still) boring! Why watch?

Which brings me to March ’08, when Olbermann & MSNBC devoted an entire hour of coverage to Obama’s passport breaches by contract workers at the State Department. Here’s a reminder of “Great Passport Firestorm” of 2008 for those who may have missed it.

At the time I thought the story was an odd one to devote so much time and attention to. If a plane slams into a building that’s “breaking news”, but this? Passport peeking? I thought the coverage at MSNBC verged on the bizarre. Someone looked at Obama’s passport information . . . really what was the big deal? Strange, indeed, to devote so much time to something, that on the surface appeared to be rather minor and of little note.

Remember, at time, the issues concerning Obama’s eligibility had not been raised. Those stories were on the horizon, months away from the initial passport story . In fact, my first post questioning Obama’s eligibility was related to Obama’s dual citizenship. This was later in the summer of ’08 when an article in the Rocky Mountain News first appeared. It mentioned BHO’s dual citizenship referenced back to 1963.

Now let’s fast forward to Olbermann and his assault on Senator Shelby.

How are these incidents ties together?

Well for starters, the answer to the question of “what’s the big deal” about looking at Obama’s passport has turned out to be a very big deal. Passport information includes date and place of birth . . . Hawaii or Kenya, for example. Passports information also details countries traveled to, travel dates and citizenship . . . US? Kenyan? Indonesian?

Suddenly the passport peeking is a very big deal if a person is perpetrating a hoax and knowingly running as an ineligible candidate for the office of President. Wanna bet Olbermann’s over the top, knee jerk reaction to the passport peeking was because Olbermann (and I would venture to say a host of others) always knew Obama was ineligible to run for POTUS.

The traitors among us do not include Senator Shelby . . . quite the contrary. Mr. Olbermann, you and everyone who has aided and assisted in bringing the faux President, the fraud Obama to the White House, you are the traitors and should be treated accordingly. Senator Clair Mc Caskill that includes you. The tip off? Olbermann’s over reaction and continued obfuscation of the truth as it relates to Obama’s citizenship. Olbermann has become a brazen liar and MSNBC is nothing less than Obama’s Pravda.

As an aside, I wonder who those two contract workers were who looked at Obama’s passport records? I sure as hell would love to talk to them and find out what was really in Obama’s records . . . the ones he continues to hide from the American people. Think there’s a way to find these two?

I am a small business owner. My company is one of the 24,000,000 small businesses that create 50% of the jobs in this country.

Without us, the politicians chant and drone on & on, the American economy would not be able to expand. We keep America afloat! (Oh, say can you see?  Sing it, everyone!)

Small business owners are a lot like “our brave men and women” who serve the country.  We get trotted out every time a politician needs a sound byte, needs to let the world and the MSM know that he or she supports Main Street over Wall Street . . . that they feel our pain.  What a crock!

Take a look at the Obama Albatross Plan  and see what you can find that helps small businesses out. (H/T Ahrcanum “ahR-Kah-noom” > secret secrets)

In a WSJ article, Coburn wrote, “What is not in the bill is as troubling as what is. The package does nothing to clear the toxic assets and bad mortgages that helped trigger the credit crisis. It also contains very little meaningful tax relief to make small businesses and American companies more competitive. Instead, the tax provisions of the stimulus are essentially a modest cash handout that repeats the failed policy of George W. Bush’s rebate-check stimulus.”

A quick read of the excellent article in the National Review of what is in the Bogus Stimulus Plan is enough to make anyone hurl.  Below are a few of projects the Obama/Democratic Washington lunatics think will help our economy recover:

$50 million for the National Endowment for the Arts
$380 million in the Senate bill for the Women, Infants and Children program
$300 million for grants to combat violence against women
$2 billion for federal child-care block grants
$6 billion for university building projects (at least there are construction jobs here)
$15 billion for boosting Pell Grant college scholarships
$4 billion for job-training programs, including $1.2 billion for “youths” up to the age of 24
$1 billion for community-development block grants (hmm, how do you spell ACORN?)
$4.2 billion for “neighborhood stabilization activities” (WTF is this?)
$650 million for digital-TV coupons; $90 million to educate “vulnerable populations” (WTF is that?)

Many of these projects have merit, but have absolutely no business in a plan designed to stimulate the economy.  In truth, Obama and the Dem’s really don’t know what they are doing, although they acknowledge what they are doing will double the $1 trillion debt left by Bush.  This is Washington’s version of throwing everything up on the wall and hoping something will stick. Well, Barack, Nancy, Barney, & Chuckie babe . . . guess what?  Hoping won’t get the job done.  Common sense and restraint will.  What am I talking about?  This is Washington, after all.

This is big government as its worst, and getting bigger every day.  As you reviewed this list, did you find anything it that helps the “back bone of the American economy”, small business? No? Me neither, because, it’s not there! BTW, if you are a homeowner, you won’t find anything here, either.

What we have here is the Grand Gesture, the “See, aren’t you glad you elected me? Look how much money I know how to spend!) designed and put together by the fools in Washington who absolutely no idea what it means to own a small business . . . what it means to meet a payroll . . . what it means to make a profit . . . what it means to “make do” with the resources at hand and keep your business afloat.

In part II,  5 things that Washington could do that would really stimulate the economy without emptying the treasury, help small business, and get consumers spending, again!
