Don't embarrass your liberal friends or show them how out of touch you are by buying them a Che t-shirt or a Black Panther Fist t-shirt (though the Cobra Kai Fist t-shirt from the Karate Kid is pretty tits). This year, don't be an out-of-touch Republican. This year, you should stay ahead of the curve. Being current is very important to the Borg for it helps them to assimilate your uniqueness into their collective, as well as, help them to attract other Borg mates.
They are smarter than you.
Just accept it.
(By the way, follow Michelle Malkins Prop. 8 mob watch.)
I got such a kick out of this quote, I had to post it.
"The report sympathetically portrays these women as desperate hut wives who, faced with tribal extinction, are forced to take extreme measures in order to survive. One wonders how sympathetic the writers of this story would be if the men of the tribe killed all of the female babies to prevent them from growing up and committing male infanticide."

Recently Obama appointed Volcker, who worked in the fed. during the Reagan revolution, as his economic advisor and has named Gates to stay on as secretary of defense. (which means we aren't leaving Iraq anytime soon.)
It appears Obama is more pragamatic than idealistic.
Therefore, the steps Obama took during his life (Wright, Ayers, memoirs, etc.), points more to political expediency than to a philosophy.
Which is fine by me.
To quote Glenn Reynolds - “Leaving the Bush tax cuts alone. Putting Iraq-war supporters in as Vice President and Secretary of State. And now keeping Bush’s Defense Secretary on. I’m beginning to feel like I won this election!”
See what the Politico has to say.
Here is a statement made by team Obama condemning the terrorist attacks in Mumbai.
“President-Elect Obama strongly condemns today’s terrorist attacks in Mumbai, and his thoughts and prayers are with the victims, their families, and the people of India. These coordinated attacks on innocent civilians demonstrate the grave and urgent threat of terrorism. The United States must continue to strengthen our partnerships with India and nations around the world to root out and destroy terrorist networks. We stand with the people of India, whose democracy will prove far more resilient than the hateful ideology that led to these attacks.”Doesn't that statement sound like something Bush would say?
Karl Rove jumps on the Obama bandwagon...somewhat.

For the rest of us Thanksgiving is time to remember our families and our proud American heritage. The amount of generosity and goodness that comes from this nation has never seen it's equal. I think we all should be thankful for that.
For those of you who can't seem to get beyond the crimes of our past and the persecution of the Noble Savage, remember this, the majority of the Indians were sadly lost to an invisible killer shortly after first contact. Well before people even knew what a microbe was, or that Indians were so defenseless to them.
"The exhibit points out that disease was the chief cause of suffering after European contact. Therefore, the horrors that beset The Ancient Americas following 1492 would have happened if the Niña, the Pinta, and the Santa María had been manned by Jimmy Carter, the Dalai Lama, and Bono." - O'Rourke
Also, as Medved reminds us, how many people do you know who is 1/4 or 1/8 or even 1/32 indian? Countless? The settlers didn't kill the Indians, they slept with them. (Or did the indians sleep with the settlers? I get that confused.) :)
Don't let guilt get in the way of your Holiday.

(Moe Chavez) "In power for almost a decade, the popular anti-U.S. president won 17 of 22 states, but the opposition held onto the two states it won at the last regional elections four years ago, picked up three more and won the powerful mayoralty of the capital Caracas."
"(Opposition) winning six top posts that govern over almost half of the population,.."
Though I often lose faith in the average voter, things like this remind me why the people ultimately should have the right to decide.
"democracy is the worst form of Government except all those others" - W. Churchill
We are going to need the people Venezuela to stand up even more in the future. Read this
"Russian warships arrived off Venezuela's coast Tuesday in a show of strength aimed at the United States as Moscow seeks to expand its influence in Latin America. "

(Step 2: Now take 360,000 dollar bills and lay it as such, but I'm sure most of you couldn't get past step one so go here and watch the money grow)
Who knows how accurate all that is, but it sure does look cool.
"About four times a year, those guilty of noise ordinance violations are required to sit in a room and listen to music from the likes of Manilow, Barney the Dinosaur, and The Platters' crooning "Only You""
Here are a few that would do it for me.

The Beatles - Yellow Submarine

Judging by the reaction of the girl in orange she secretly was a David Cook fan but didn't have the courage to tell her friends. She will most likely become a Republican.
Gotta love hotair for always posting such great stuff

Oh, and here's a version of the trailer that's about ten thousand times better than the cell phone cam pirate job Blogust posted earlier.
Looks good, except someone tell me how the part with Kirk as a kid driving the car off of the cliff can end up being anything other than ridiculously cheesy. That monster looks pretty boss, though. I hope he defeats it by fashioning some sort of rudimentary lathe.
Okay fine, not everyone knows the definition of suffrage. Not unusual, but of the four I think Whoopie and Shamu should have at least known since they are both black, both women and both Know-it-alls.
Now watch one of my favorite clips from the Man Show.

"These people, who have good jobs and drive a hybrid car or cycle to work because they care about the environment, may go to party and do some lines of coke and they are thinking it is no problem," Francisco Santos told The Associated Press Tuesday. "They are absolutely unaware of the ecological impact of their drug taking and we want to change that."
"It is becoming apparent that some species can respond to things like climate change, and others cannot."
my eyes glazed over and I farted.
Read it yourself.
"She is the best politician in our family," he was quoted as saying.
"Hillary and I are very proud of her because she never tried to take advantage of our position. I would think it was wonderful if Chelsea went into politics."
You know she will.
and it is paying off
UPDATE: Speaking of India, looks like they are kicking butt as well. I wonder if the Indian people protested in the streets after their govt. acted in such a brazen manner
Damn Imperialist world police warmongers. (do I need to use the burnt umber sarcasm coloring?)

Pretty harmless at first, but it gets good as it goes.
Was this the media's fault or was it just an example of people only tuning to info they want to hear?
I wished they tested McCain voters as well, but eh...
I am sure McCain voters would have been able to answer such questions as who has a pregnant daughter, who said they could see Russia from their house (though Tina Fey said it I am still giving it to Palin.), who is William Ayers and who called to redistribute wealth. Of course I don't know for certain, but I think they could have answered those.
Then again, maybe not. I don't know. If they watched Fox news then they could.
Go to this site, where I ripped off this video, and check out a very interesting Zogby Poll.
One says the movie is filmed using Michael J. Fox cam (like they did in the Bourne movies)
And the other says it is big time lefty movie.
Too bad, but I am going heed the warning and save my money for this instead.
Check out the preview for this so called "Swedish Gem"
Gross and Creepy!

This line is gold:
3. Increase food stamp benefits so low-income Americans can afford high quality organic foods. One way to do this would be to double the value of food stamp debit cards for fresh food purchased from farmers markets.
Why don't you just charge less, you money grubbing, whole foods shopping nut case?

Personally I am saddened by this whole thing. Why have the parents left it up to her to decide?
Is this the product of the single pay system? Has the British healthcare system bred apathy or is this an isolated case?
"Today’s bombings in Iraq which left dozens dead is a stark and horrible reminder that, while violence has dropped significantly there as a result of the U.S. military’s surge, that country is still very dangerous.
It’s a measure of progress that today’s blasts, which killed at least 31 people in Baghdad and more elsewhere, according to the Associated Press, represented the worst day of violence since June. Less than two years ago such a time gap in major attacks was unheard of.
But it’s also true that the continuing violence indicates how difficult the challenge will be for President-elect Barack Obama. "
http://www.patdollard.com/ has the story.
Case In Point.
McCain ran a MUCH more transparent campaign. Obama's was full of eyebrow raising instances. Yet who get audited because he used public funds? McCain.
No one will ever use public funds again. This ridiculous action by the FEC has made it so that no one in their right mind will use public funds. So much for any sort of accountability.
"I'm not going to use public funds so that I don't put undue stress on the people." has become "I want to cheat the hell out of this system, suckers."
Did we really need to go to the moon over and over?
Latest case in point: this fiasco. $475 million to send a robot into space that tells us pretty much everything we already know about the red planet? I'm so confused. And it was planned that it would die after 5 months????
By the way, who came up with word "horny" anyway. It is a terrible sounding word. Hell I'm embarrassed to write it.
UPDATE: Foreplay is overrated, researchers claim. But intercourse has to last for an average of 16.2 minutes if you want to seal the deal.

Hey Farrelly Bros., you can't redo The Three Stooges. It isn't yours to redo. It's like Steve Martin bringing back The Pink Panther. Or when Tim Burton redid Willy Wonka and created that piece of trash, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. (Which so happens to be Maximum Colossus' favorite movie BTW) Bad idea!
I don't know. Anyone optimistic?
It is a post called "from 52 to 48 with love" and it appears to be some sort of internet olive branch. Check it out. You'll get the point.
What makes me mad the most is that we will have to take this peace offering. That is who we are, but I wish the post was a little more honest.
Stuff like "I'm sorry I was a crazy fucking lunatic for the past 8 years. That was really rude of me. And all those times I called you warmongers and burned the flag and spit on George Bush, well that was way out of line. I am lib, what can I say. I think in emotional terms and sometimes I can't control them. Anyway, I hope you all forgive us and I hope that you don't follow our bad example and bash our new president without mercy." That would have been better.
I stole this from Ace of Spades. Make sure you read his post. He did a far better job summing up his frustration than I did.
p.s. If you noticed, the post is designed to make it seem that both 52 and 48 came together in a mutual effort of solidarity. I am sorry, but I am not buying it. I assume the idea was hatched and created primarily by lefties. Oh well, like I said, we'll have to take it.

I spent a whole semester studying the the Cuban missile crisis in my AP history class my senior year in high school. Yeah, I was/am a geek that way. Russia, our main enemy at the time, wanted to test a young, inexperienced president. And they did, and the result was the Cuban missile crisis, the bay of pigs disaster, and the Berlin wall.
A similar version is going to happen again, folks. More here. Barry 0's (yes that's a zero) consistency on wanting to offer group hugs instead of pointed spears has been heard by our enemies. They will start stepping up.
As this kind of stuff ramps up, Barry 0's attention will turn to foreign affairs. This will require him to give less time to his spreading the wealth, health care, carbon taxing, etc. He will be forced to defend freedom, or give up and let our enemies run all over him while he focuses on domestic issues instead.
If he does not defend freedom, people at home will be angry. If he does not follow through on his whole hope/change/yes-we-can mantra, people at home will be angry.
The honeymoon will be short. I'm going to keep saying it.
And heck, I'll throw this in here too. A bit long, but a great read. Not really related to the post topic either, but eh...
on the one hand he says
"hopes that in an Obama America, straight people would be willing to let gay people have the basic right to equality in their personal relationships. It appears not."
and on the other hand he says
"Part of the reason is that Obama inspired unprecedented numbers of African Americans to vote. Polls show that black voters are more likely to attend church than whites and less likely to be comfortable with equality for gay people."
Hmmmm... Very interesting, but I think he is wrong and a dummy. Prop. 8 passed 52.2% to 47.8% during this election, but only eight years ago, prop. 22 passed with a much higher percentage. 61% of the state voted to ban same sex marriage then, which means a higher percentage of voters voted for Gay marriage rights this time around than ever before. (I think ever before. How many times has this issue been on the ballot?) How does Mr. Cloud explain that? He doesn't.
The worst part about this article is that while he seems to toy with idea that blacks are to blame at first, the last three lines he solidifies it.
"The entire New York legislature is now in Democratic hands, and New York's governor, David Paterson, is one of the nation's most eloquent pro-marriage-equality representatives. He is also, by the way, African American. Perhaps he can help bridge the gap between gays and blacks that widened on Nov. 4."
Therefore, you people who voted yes on 8, don't worry about feeling guilty. It was the black christians fault.

Look where they are today.
I'm not happy about our new commander-in-cheif (yuck!), government run health care, union bullying, carbon offset tax fiascos, the fairness doctrine, protectionism, etc.
But this is just temporary. Things go in cycles. The Dems will really mess a lot of things up. This will suck for the US, and I'm sad to have to live through it, but it seems to be what is necessary so that the US will pay a price for its stupidity so that we can move away from today's major mistake. It will take a while for his empty suit to show, and when it does, and when the truth of his goofball followers starts to show (like it already has with the FM/FM and bail out fiasco), and when his past is uncovered more and more, then people will wake up, and we'll hopefully be happier 2 and 4 years from now.

Here is an old Commie sign. Doesn't it look awfully similar to the "Bark For Barrack" sign?
And here is Obama using a quote straight from Chairman Mao.
Obama - "I feel like we got a righteous wind at our backs here, but we’re going to have to work. We’re going to have to struggle. We’re going to have to fight."
Mao - "The ill wind of opportunism is falling, the righteous wind of socialism is on the rise.By the end of this year the victory of socialism will be greatly assured. Naturally there will be many struggles ahead and we must struggle hard."
I'm sorry but that quote is way too similar to be just a coincidence.

It wasn't until I learned who took their places did I realize what an egotistical move this really was. Reporters from Ebony/Jet, Essence and and a guy doing an HBO documentary about Obama are now apart of the elite.
Now I would write an opinion about this decision, but I'm sure Andrew Malcolm did a much better job of it.
When you are reading his article, keep in mind that the expelled newspaper reporters had nothing to do with their papers endorsement decision. That task is performed by the editorial board which is a whole seperate department.
I really like Hot Air's take on it: "Malcolm sees what the Tanning Bed Media has largely missed in the general election. Barack Obama has no interest in bipartisanship or reaching across the aisle. He wants power, and Obama hits back ruthlessly to those who challenge his bid for it."
Also, Pelosi has made it plain that she wants to bring back the Fairness Doctrine. Does anyone here believe that Obama wouldn't sign such a thing if he becomes President?
Prinicipal: "Children were [asking], where is the boy who is Jesus Christ?" she said. "It was disrupting the education process."
"Woinski has developed an interest in religion. His mother is Catholic and his father is Jewish. He recently celebrated his Bar Mitzvah and his also studying Bible scripture. His school says this was the first time anyone had ever dressed up like Jesus. They say other students were ordered to alter their costumes because they were deemed inappropriate."
What do you think? was he sent home because he was offending christians, or was he sent home because he was offending non-christians?
Or was it because he was a disruption, as the principal claimed?
I have to admit I find a Jesus costume a little odd for Halloween, but...
