Why Would Someone Lie About Something Like This?

Acorn lady did not kill her husband.
Money quote: "The couple divorced in 1987, but attempted to reconcile and lived together from 2002 to 2005, Ronald Kaelke said in a telephone interview. In 2007, the couple traded allegations of domestic violence and received separate restraining orders against each other, he said.
“As far as her murdering an ex-husband, that’s news to me,” Ronald Kaelke said. “She’s definitely got problems and goes off the wall sometimes.”"

People Get So Political... that Obama's in office. Of course, I'm sure I'm just being a sour puss when I wonder how these people might have reacted if the board had allowed their children to watch a speech from George Bush when he was in office. Of course, it was okay to disrepect George Bush, because he was white.

Of Course.

Well, leave it to Carter to come out and say what all the Dems have been dying to say. I can see them all sitting around going, "Let's make Jimmy say it. He'll say anything." I don't know if black people are less qualified to run this great country, but I know you weren't, buddy.

Another 9/11 Post

Two other events we should remember on this day
Operation Iraqi Freedom
Operation Enduring Freedom

Friday Video

I realized that the last post was a bit of a downer and I apologize for that and so I am going to post something that is more uplifting.
Football does wonders in bringing people together.

9/11 Post

I never have anything relevant to say about 9/11. Partly, because it sounds cliche, but mostly, because I don't really care. I didn't fully understand the latter part until I read this really great post from Ace.

"We've been mythologizing 9/11 bringing us closer than ever before; maybe we can interrupt this myth-making from time to time to note it actually divided us more than ever in our history. It was actually my intent to write the same old cute story of that feeling of being united; when I got there, however, it was a bitter cliche and a lie I choked on."

I am shocked at how something as easy as 9/11 is so devisive. How something so obvious has led to, "it's only obvious to you" type remarks. This day has taught me one thing, there is a group of people who don't want to be associated with us, but still call themselves Americans. There is a group of people who are contrary for contrary's sake and will refuse to see eye to eye with who I feel are reasonable people. This same group is growing everyday, and I believe will ultimately destroy this country. I want to believe the U.S. will last forever, but I don't. I want to believe that 9/11 means something to me, but a part of me wishes the towers were filled with these types of people. I would not shed a tear nor would I think of their families. Therefore, I think I may be more like the 9/11 truthers than I once realized. A part of me thinks a section of this country deserves it.

I know this is stinkin' thinkin' and I think their is only one option. I must pray so that my heart doesn't blacken like so many others have.

UPDATE: After re-reading this post I felt myself screaming, "Shut-up you whiner!" But I am not going to erase it. I am leaving myself open for deserved criticism.
Have fun.

Double Hotair Post

Just found two great posts from hotair on the uninsured.
Number 1


Number 2


This picture is from this thoroughly annoying article.

Can anyone ever remember the media using a picture of George Bush that looked anything like this?

Hubby Hubby

Ben & Jerry's has changed the name of one of their flavors from Chubby Hubby to Hubby Hubby in support of Vermont's support of Gay Marriage.
I have no comment on this one. I mean I could point out that this particular flavor contains fudge packed pretzel sticks filled with nut butter, but I won't. That would be childish.

Now For Something Lighter

I loved this commercial and so I am posting it.

Charles Krauthammer Does It Again

Krauthammer defines what he sees as the result of Obama's diplomacy with Iran and Venezuela.
This is a must read.

One More Reason To Love Fox News

First it was Glenn Beck (a loud mouth freak who is appropriatly placed in the 3pm slot, but makes for great T.V. and totally exposed Van Jones), then Don Imus (who is also a loud mouth but is supposed to be a marketing genius and so he is joining Fox business report) and now John Stossel is leaving ABC for Fox
What do these three have in common other than the fact that Beck and Stossel call themselves Libertarians? All three have enough star power to make Fox the premiere news station. With Charles Gibson resigning as ABC news anchor it is clear that more people will be tuning into Fox for their news and I think that is great. For you news junkies, I liken it to an NFL dynasty and I hope people will tune in long enough before the news media puts a salary cap on the networks to create more parity.

I Can't Wait For 9/12!

Americans Observing 9/11 By Trying Not To Masturbate

He Lied!

So, if you haven't seen Joe Wilson call Obama a liar during his healthcare sales pitch, here it is:

Now, let's see if the media actually takes a break from vilifying Wilson to actually poke into the facts of the allegation. If that happens, Wilson will be a true American hero.

Can't Wait For Friday

Just sitting around listening to one of my all time favorite bands, The Oblivians, and I came across this wonderful video on youtube. What perfect accompaniment.

Susan Atkins To Be Released For Libyan Oil

Let's face it, the crimes of the Manson family is not so very different to the crimes perpetrated by the Libyan terrorist who was recently realesed by the UK on the grounds of compassion.

Like al-Megrahi the Manson family killed men, women and children without remorse in order, as I would argue, to start a "race war". Of course the Manson family acted on the orders of a freakish looking madman who charmed many of his followers while al-Megrahi worked alone. But with the heroes welcome he received by Libya, one wonders how much Gaddafi, another freakish looking madman, knew about the plot. (could this plot have been revenge for the death of his daughter just two years earlier?)

Now that Susan Atkins is dying of cancer, shouldnt' she be released on grounds of compassion? Of course not, but to me, comparing Atkins to Megrahi helps define the decision made by Scottland (a.k.a the U.K.) with regards to al-Megrahi's release. The only real glaring difference between the two is that Atkins has since shown remorse while al-Megrahi hasn't.
And since this is so obvious to me, I am forced to wonder what Scottland gained from it.

Therefore I do believe he was released for oil
I do believe Gordon Brown knew about the release based on that reason
and I do believe Obama was informed of the decision before al-Megrahi was let go.
And the reasons for my belief is based on what the pundits have been saying in the news lately.
Questions like "when has Scottland ever acted independently from the U.K. regarding foreign affairs?" and "when has the U.K. ever acted independently of the U.S. regarding foreign terrorists?" need to be answered.

I have thought before that it wasn't going to be domestic policy to sink Obama, but foreign policy. If people become suspicious of Obama's involvment of this case and if the war in Afghanistan is perceived as a failure, I don't think Obama will recover.

The President has one primary job... keeping the country safe. All this other stuff e.g. healthcare, cap and trade, stimulus etc. won't save him once the people see Obama as being weak and unable to keep this country safe. Even if his socialist programs work wonders, which they won't, Obama will be seen as impotent.

Maybe It's Good Thing I Don't Have Children

Because I don't see the crime in this.
Awwwww, just kidding.
But seriously, I have to admit that there have been times when I envisioned myself drop kicking a kid who wont shut up.

Palin Is The Next Ted Kennedy

One of the more interesting assessments of Ted Kennedy and why he was considered a powerful political figure. It appears that it has less to do with policy and more to do with influence.


Unscripted interviews that allow people to unknowingly mock themselves are always fun.
