Hither and thither 9/25/09

Once again, we're all over the map. Let's launch! (As usual, click on pix to enlarge.)

  • Do tell. A poll claims that 89% have figured out that the MSM played a strong role in getting Obama elected. Inexplicably, 10% continue to enjoy sublithial living.
  • An alarming, but unsurprising two-pronged approach is revealing itself in President Obama's foreign policy: abuse our friends, and coddle our enemies. Note, for instance, his churlishness towards the British Prime Minister, and his putting Israel on the chopping block. President Obama basically apologizes for (and misconstrues) all of American history up to the past nine months. Hunh. "Nine months." What happened nine months ago?  Oh, yeah. The Ascension of The One, the first time his wife was able to be proud to be an American. On the other hand, some can be excused for gaining the impression that the president rather likes tyrants and dislikes America.
  • With that premise, this comes as no surprise, whatever.
  • By contrast, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu give a stirring, eloquent and instructive address, asking the UN if it had no shame. I think we know the answer to that one. (Excerpts; full text.)
  • Another Obamafriend is ousted Honduran president Manuel Zelaya, who William Jacobson calls "A crazy, power-hungry tyrant in the image of Hugo Chavez, Muammar al-Khadaffi and Mahmoud Ahmadinejad." The "crazy" part refers, I think, to Zelaya's belief that Israeli mercenaries are torturing him with toxic gases and high-frequency radiation. From a distance, I gather.
  • Hm, as reader Lee N. Field observed, looks like it's getting a bit worn-out 

  • The indispensable Mark Steyn offers us the witty and incisive Dislike Obama? You must be racistWarning: one coarse word and, thanks to CNN's Anderson Cooper, one nasty word-picture.
  • Reader Shannon Mitchell points us to this helpful comparison:

  • Yikes! This story will make my DAOD glad she's not Indonesian.
  • Oh, my. Now that is what I'm talkin' about!

  • Title of the Week. You have to read it the right way, but here it is.  Teen Drinking Tied to Bad Choices as Adult. I read that, and thought "Hunh. But... I'm a teenager. How do I know what bad choices I'm going to make when I'm an adult?"
  • Joe Biden Keeps Hope Alive! Happy Joe holds out some hope for the country, saying that a significant GOP win in 2010 could prevent most or all of the harm he and Obama mean to do to the country. Okay, he didn't put it exactly that way, but... go, GOP!
  • Our LEGO feature this week is really stellar. Check out this gallery of 18 superheroes built out of Legos. They're really all very good. Here are just three favorites. Guess them, then check the site.

  • More Lego. My DAOD points us to a 40,000-brick statue of Buzz Lightyear.
  • I don't know how many will have find this useful, but the iPhone has an app called Bionic Eye that showcases what amazing things this little rectangle is capable of. Endure the gent's rough accent for at least a minute or two, and marvel.
  • The Kanye West thing may be just about played out.  But not yet! 

  • Mood-shift Warning: wait until you're done laughing. We turn now to the not-remotely-funny.
  • Abortion addict has 15 babies killed in 16 years and writes a book about it. She has two worries. One is that her story might be "twisted by the pro-life movement to deny women the right to choose" to kill bunches of babies like she did. Yeah, because that would be terrible. And the second is: she fears that someone will target her for violence. Because, you know, it's a terrible thing to do violence to someone who just wants to live.
  • Now, back to a lighter mood.
  • Hungry for a Gummi Bear? I may just have the cure:

  • Leaving us with, of course:

Sham-Wow for President 2012!

The story of Irene Vilar, self-proclaimed abortion addict (better title would be sex addict) truly sickens me. She will actually make money from her tell-all book. If that's not blood money, I don't know what is.

Tim Bertolet said...

You've gotta laugh at Biden's logic: if the democrats retain control of the house "a new era of bipartisanship will begin".

It'll be a new era all right. So with no one to oppose of presidential agenda and limited representation of another party we will be more "bipartisan".

Mike Riccardi said...

Everyday Mommy has the exact same comment as I do. I began writing it out and realized she beat me to it. I suppose that doesn't stop me from writing my own anyway.

This woman sickens me. Not only is she a serial murderer but she's going to step on each of her dead children on the stairway to her 15 minutes. She should be locked up.

But the pro-life movement should just let this die after the first week. And they definitely shouldn't buy the book. Raise enough awareness so that even liberals are outraged, and then let it die without funding this psycho's 15 abortions.

DJP said...

Yup. Loving the bipartisanship so far.

When the GOP says "bipartisan," they mean, "We caved."

When the Dems say it, it means "Do it our way."

The Squirrel said...

Hmmm... Maybe cheeseburgers for dinner...

Usually I can trust DAN THE MAN to give me all the CRAP that the pigs are spewing out in the Obama-Care debate, but Dan the man missed this one.

And it directly affects me as a poor college student going into ministry with little income to spare. Not just this, but also the student loan takeover crap, which is not comforting.


Sen. John Ensign (R-Nev.) received a handwritten note Thursday from Joint Committee on Taxation Chief of Staff Tom Barthold confirming the penalty for failing to pay the up to $1,900 fee for not buying health insurance.

Violators could be charged with a misdemeanor and could face up to a year in jail or a $25,000 penalty, Barthold wrote on JCT letterhead. He signed it "Sincerely, Thomas A. Barthold."


Pay or go to Jail. Wow.

If this bill passes, CIVIL UNREST will hit every city in America.

Leaving my comments in random order...

1. Love the Sham-Wow vs. Obama grid. Who knew??

2. The gummy bear anatomy chart is hilarious!! Don't exactly remember where I put it, but I know I have a picture (on photo paper, not digital) of one of my friends performing "surgery" on a gummy bear some years ago. It was great fun. We might even have done some "head transplants" with those yummy critters that day....

"When Sheep Attack"

Hold on, just a it: Movie Review: Black Sheep. (Ob. warning: a bit of innuendo at the end that makes it not family safe.)

"Abortion addict has 15 babies killed in 16 years". Fifteen? Boggles the mind. I knew a woman, many years ago, that'd had 3. Basically a loose woman not bright enough to keep from getting pregnant. Fifteen?? How? Mutter, mutter...

"We might even have done some "head transplants" with those yummy critters that day...."

Peep Research is probably right up your alley.

jmb said...

"Sublithial"? I can't find it anywhere. "Lithial" is in Joyce's 'Finnegans Wake,' but that's not very helpful: "Will you not perhopes tell me everything if you are pleased, sanity? All about aulne and lithial
and allsall allinall about awn and liseias? Ney?"

DJP said...

I made it up, JMB. "Sublithial living" = living under a rock.

Becky, slave of Christ said...

Sermon Fire: That is creepy news.

Dan: Benjamin Netanyahu is a wise man and did a great job presenting his case. Thanks for link.

Also, thanks for the clarification on sublithial. When I googled it, only this post was found. I love coined words. :)

That burger makes my tummy hurt.

That's all I have time to get through right now; I'll be back.

Susan said...

2a. Wow, Lee--I never knew Peep research existed until today!! :)

Joshua Cookingham said...

I think those Mormons need to convert to Christianity FAST! We don't have such scruples about Giant cheeseburgers....oh, and we use God's actual Word...that helps too :)
