White Guilt 101

As most of you likely know, against his better judgment McCain went on The View, which should really be titled "The Ignorant View of a Bunch of Ugly Women - Except Elizabeth Hasselbeck". While on "The Ignorant View", McCain commented something to the effect that, [paraphrase] "…I want judges on the bench who do not mess with the Constitution…", meaning that he doesn't want judges who disregard the Constitution, and thus legislate from the bench. Now McCain's mistake was attempting to provide a serious, well-thought-out answer to a bunch of Liberal ignoramuses, except Elizabeth Hasselbeck.

During McCain's response, Whoopi Goldberg could hardly contain herself. She had the perfect question. So as McCain pontificated, Goldberg was literally squirming in her seat like a first-grader who needed to "go pee pee". She finally interrupted, saying something to the effect, "…So what? You want me to go back to being a slave?"

She had gotten McCain, because after all it is the Republicans who have oppressed Blacks all these years, right? All together now, "NOT!"

This was an "Oh my God", game-changing sound-bite opportunity, that unfortunately McCain missed. How could he miss this opportunity to teach, and put Whoopi back in her cage? I know. Teaching Whoopi would be like trying to teach a gorilla Shakespeare!

So I thought to myself, perhaps McCain, like most Americans is not armed with proper knowledge…history! With the proper historical ammunition, McCain would not have been caught off guard, and he wouldn't have performed the mea culpa to Goldberg, as he ultimately did in view of all of America's NOW generation.

So what should McCain have said to Whoopi? Since you asked, I will tell you verbatim what McCain should have said.

"Whoopi, you obviously are not a student of history, as it was the Republican Party who freed your sorry Black ass from slavery!"

How about that for a sound bite?! And it would have been step one in McCain's education of America on the Republican Party and on Black history for that matter.

Now admittedly, perhaps McCain should not say, "…freed your sorry Black ass", and perhaps toned it down a bit in case there is media bias against him? But he could have said something like, "…freed Black people". You get my point. McCain missed his moment, and what I believe could have been an election-saving moment.

So this got me thinking, that if a Republican presidential candidate doesn't even know enough about history to tell Whoopi Goldberg that her "reality check bounced", then my white brethren and sisteren likely are not properly armed either? Thankfully, you have The League of Black Republican Superheroes!

My treatise is, if I held a gun to the head of the average American, and asked him to name ten Blacks of significance, pre-1950, you know I would have to shoot 99% of them.

Don't believe me? Then try it!...The squeamish should turn away right now… Booyah!

So what is the significance of this short history lesson? To arm you against those who would call you racist because you are a proud Republican. With the knowledge you will gain today, you can debate any Hypocrat, and thus "flip the script" or turn racism back on them. You will be able to prove to them that it is they who are either racists or stupid...or both.

So here are three of the most powerful bullets in your gun, yes I love you gun-toting NRA-loving Republicans. You are my people, which is why I scribe!

  1. All legislation to protect the rights of Blacks was initiated by Republicans! That sentence is worth reading again, isn't it? This may come as a surprise to you, since Democrats have usurped the Civil Rights laws as their own. You will learn below how they were able to accomplish this.
  2. All legislation to prevent Blacks from voting was sponsored by Democrats. Yet another sentence worthy of a re-read! Many of you may find that shocking, but it is true.
  3. Finally, what was not legislated to prevent Blacks from voting was accomplished through intimidation tactics of…you guessed it, Democrats and their minions, such as organizations like the Klu Klux Klan.

So here is the brief history. The first civil rights laws were passed right after slavery, and were the first legislative attempts to assure African Americans an equal political and legal status. Those acts were the Civil Rights Acts of 1866, 1870, 1871, and 1875, all Republican-sponsored legislation.

I promise not to belabor these in great detail, except to explain what they covered. Remember, you need this information to battle White "meddlers" and elitists, as well as "silly Negros". I have underlined some "code", so that you see where the Democrats fit in all of this.

1866 - A law passed by the Republican-dominated Congress on April 9, 1866, during Reconstruction to protect the rights of freed slaves and to guarantee equal rights to blacks. It was passed "…over a March 27 veto by President Andrew Johnson, a Democrat." The 1866 act was of dubious constitutionality and was reenacted in 1870, only after the passage of the Fourteenth Amendment.

1871 - In March 1871, President Ulysses S. Grant, a Republican requested from Congress legislation that would address the problem of KKK violence, which had grown steadily since the group's formation in 1866. Congress responded on April 20, 1871, with the passage of the Ku Klux Klan Act, originally introduced as a bill to enforce the provisions of the Fourteenth Amendment and for other purposes. So what was this act meant to do? The Civil Rights Act of 1871 made it a crime to deny any citizen equal protection under the law by means of "force, intimidation or threat."

1875 - The act of 1875 further guaranteed blacks the right to use public accommodations, but this legislation was declared unconstitutional by the Supreme Court in 1883. Well guess what the makeup of the Supreme Court was in 1883? That is indeed a rhetorical question, but I will answer it, in case I have a Democrat, excuse my Hypocrat reading my blog. The Supreme Court of 1883 was made up of Democrats, yes racists!

After the Civil Rights Act of 1875 there was no more significant federal legislation in this field until the Civil Rights Acts of 1957 and 1960, although several states passed their own civil-rights laws.

1957 – The Civil Rights Act of 1957 was introduced during the presidency of Dwight Eisenhower, a Republican. This act is credited with kick-starting the civil rights legislative program that was to include the 1964 Civil Rights Act and the 1965 Voting Rights Act. Eisenhower was able to get 1957 Civil Rights Act passed, though cynics would say that "…this was simply to win the 'Black Vote'". In 1957 roughly 20% of African Americans were even registered to vote, so it was essentially irrelevant, given the numbers that actually voted. Good try, Hypocrats!

Now there is really no need to go further, except to explain that Eisenhower's civil rights program was the runway for all civil rights legislation to launch. And LBJ's signing of The 1964 Civil Rights Act was purely symbolic, and based on the vision and previous work of Eisenhower.

But enough about us! Let's talk about the Hypocrats. Needless to say, I have proven my point that these people wanted to keep Blacks in slavery, and are still succeeding to this day. But they also tried sneaky tactics along the way to minimalize Blacks, like the 3/5th Compromise1 and Poll Taxes2.

And Hypocrats did not only try to stop Blacks from voting, but also from enjoying the same way of life that the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. The Democrats created things like Jim Crow Laws3 and Black Codes4, all legislation undone by Republicans.

So in short, when confronted by Hypocrats or silly Negros, you should now have enough of a historical backdrop to "flip the script".

That's my rant!

13/5th Compromise – I won't give you a bunch of historical goblet-goop. Suffice it to say that the Democrats, which were mainly the Southern states wanted their cakes and to eat it too. They didn't want to recognize their slaves as humans. However they wanted them counted for census purposes, thus giving them more representation in Congress. The Northern states, in an effort to thwart slavery and bestow full rights to slaves, proposed legislation that would not allow the Hypocrats to count slaves, unless slaves were given rights. The "compromise" was the 3/5th Compromise, which bestowed upon Blacks, 3/5th rights. So essentially Republicans got Blacks some representation.

2Poll Taxes - A poll tax, in the sense of a discrimination tax which was a pre-condition of the exercise of the right to vote, emerged in some US states in the late 19th century. After the right to vote was extended to all races by the enactment of the Fifteenth Amendment, many Southern states, code words for Democrats, enacted poll tax laws which often included a grandfather clause that allowed any adult male whose father or grandfather had voted in a specific year prior to the abolition of slavery to vote without paying the tax. These laws achieved the desired effect of disfranchising African-American and Native American voters as well as poor whites who immigrated after the year specified.

3Jim Crow Laws - The Jim Crow laws were state and local laws enacted between 1876 and 1965. They mandated de jure segregation in all public facilities, with a "separate but equal" status for black Americans and members of other non-white racial groups. Some examples of Jim Crow laws are the segregation of public schools, public places and public transportation, and the segregation of restrooms and restaurants for whites and blacks. [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jim_crow_laws]

4Black Codes – The Black Codes were laws passed on the state and local level mainly in the rural Southern states in the United States to limit the civil rights and civil liberties of African Americans. While some northern states also passed legislation discriminating against African Americans before the Civil War, the term Black Codes is most commonly associated with legislation passed by Southern states after the Civil War in an attempt to control the labor, movements and activities of African Americans. There were signs posted in towns to keep blacks from integrating with the whites. These signs read "if black, stay black!" [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Black_Codes_in_the_USA]

Bizarro World

DC Comics could have never predicted that the fictitious Bizarro World would indeed come to pass in 2008. The idea is so far out there, that one would find it…bizarre.

Bizarro World is the world of "Htrae" ("Earth" spelled backwards), where society is ruled by the Bizarro Code: "Us do opposite of all Earthly things! Us hate beauty! Us love ugliness! Is big crime to make anything perfect on Bizarro World!"

There is an episode in Bizarro World where a salesman has a great business selling Bizarro bonds: "Guaranteed to lose money for you". It is easy to see what DC Comics likely thought was a fictitious, weird place in the universe. However, when you analyze America today, one can conclude that the nonsensical Bizarro World has become our bizarre reality.

So we begin our analysis by examining the Financial Crisis of 2008.

First, the truth is that it is the Democrats are chiefly responsible for the financial crisis, and they have created our Bizarro World. I won't take you through my normal history lesson, as most of you have been deluged by the facts. However I will outline a few relevant facts:
  • Fact – Jimmy Carter signed into law the Community Reinvestment Act (1977), authorizing loans be made available to low-income households
  • Fact – Clinton repeals Glass-Stegall and reduces reserve requirements with Fed bank
  • Fact – Obama the lawyer threatens lawsuits against institutions for not making suspect loans
  • Fact – Obama (Dem) receives 2nd most PAC money from Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac
  • Fact – Dodd (Dem) receives the most PAC money from Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac

  • Fact – The Democrats thwarted any and all legislation to put controls on Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, though Republicans were initiating it
  • Fact – Barney Frank (Dem) was the Chairman of the House Financial Services Committee during this time and has been on the committee for ten years...oh, and Frank received the 3rd most money from Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac

Now this is enough evidence for any reasonable person to concede that the Democrats are chiefly to blame, though I defy you to find me a reasonable Democrat, for that is truly an oxymoron. So using logic, ask yourself, "If a Republican was to blame, given the temperament of the Democrats who control both Houses of Congress, and who wanted to impeach Bush for "war crimes", then why hasn't a Republican been drawn and quartered?" Surely there is some Republican for the Democrats to drag behind a truck through the streets of Washington DC. Let me answer my rhetorical question: No Republican has been dragged, because there isn't one to drag.

And because we are in "Bizarro World", Obama has convinced America that it is George Bush's fault and then tied the 800-pound gorilla on McCain's back, when both Bush and McCain warned of the crisis as early as 2004! Since we are in Bizarro World, I must say…"Well done, Obama!"

But there is more to Bizarro World. Where else can you grow up with work ethic, study hard in school, get good grades, and land yourself a good job, only to be called a racist, self-indulgent son-of-swine? And if you advance to ownership, then you are scum for breaking the backs of the poor Bizarro World non-worker. Since we are in Bizarro World, I say…"Shame on you, you hardworking, college-educated person of character".

Bizarro World is a world, where known terrorists are freed, and innocent babies are killed. So in Bizarro World, you can blow up police stations and commit other acts of terror, and be lauded as a citizen, and be given lots of money by the government, and then allowed to teach others of your disdain for the government at the University of Chicago, where you will be lauded as one of Bizarro World's finest professors. Such is Bizarro World.

But woe be to the innocent babies, because they hate innocence in Bizarro World.

But there is more to Bizarro World. Bizarro World is the only place in the universe where you can be lazy, actually encouraged not to work, have six children by four "baby's mama's", and you will not be required to pay child support.

In Bizarro World the government will dispatch your checks to you twice a month, because you needn't get up from your rest. So you can sit leisurely in your government-subsidized air-conditioned or heated home, eating government provided food, watching cable TV in your $100 Nikes, your $50 jeans, your $350 "throw-back" Jersey, while talking in intelligible language on your cell phone, playing on your PlayStation, with an iPod and keys to your tricked-out Lexus in your pocket. Since we are in Bizzaro World, I say…"Touché, you lazy Knucklehead. Well done!" But there is more to Bizarro World.

In Bizarro World, if you molest a child, they send you to a spa for a month for rehab, and then celebrate your release. Job you say? Well why not work at a day-care center. Because in Bizarro World, everybody deserves a second chance [to molest a child].

In the real world, a criminal breaks into your home, rapes your cat, and steals your loot, you shoot him, he's arrested, tried by a jury of his peers, then sent to jail, hopefully to be tormented as he tormented your cat.

But in Bizarro World, in the same scenario, the criminal is not arrested, you are. Then you are sued by the criminal for violating his rights to steal your loot, lose your home to the criminal, while the criminal marries your cat. Congratulations to the miscreant, and welcome to Bizarro World…oh, and let's not forget to welcome him to your family. As for you, well now you're getting what the cat got from the criminal! Our criminal is now an outstanding citizen of Bizarro World!

In the real world, one learns a craft, and works at a job for many years, in order to gain true expertise. However in Bizarro World, you can get hired at a junior level, go on sabbatical for 18 months to write a book, return for six months, and then ask to be made president. Not president of the company, silly, but of the United States! Since we are in Bizarro World, I say…"Well done, Smooth Criminal!"

And finally, in Bizarro World the president can hang out with criminals, and terrorists who surprisingly are mostly university professors. In Bizarro World the president hates the country, and he demonstrates it during the pledge of Allegiance, as he doesn't put his hand over his heart, nor does he show any patriotism, like wearing an American flag on his lapel, unless it is upside down! And in Bizarro World, the president disregards the Constitution.

Welcome to the new world that is America. Welcome to Bizarro World…Have a crappy day!

That's my rant!

Obama Love

Since I consider Obama a Black racist, and a terrorist-loving, America-hating, resume-building, no talent hack, and I say this affectionately, I have wondered what is White America's fascination with him. It's not like the 60s when it was much more difficult to find an "articulate, eloquent and…clean" Black man as it is these days. We are everywhere, I am proud to say. And while I am interested in the White male point of view on this subject, I am more interested in the White female point of view.

Recently I attended an event, where James Carville was one of the keynote speakers. Typically I would never attend such an event, as I find the man both irritating and funny to look at. I was struggling with a stomach bug, so why run the risk of losing my lunch in two ways. However Carville's wife was to be the "better half" of the speech, which is why I decided to put my $7 at risk.

Admittedly I enjoyed Carville, and remembered that he said "…statistically speaking, over 65% of White women with Masters degrees vote Democratic". He went on to discuss other demographics, and essentially the net was "…dumb White chicks dig Obama." Obviously. They are dumb, I ROFL'd at the thought!

So the two-thirds so-called educated White women who vote Democrat, according to Carville do so mainly because of the right to choose. They are the NOW generation women, though I have another name for them. They remind me of precocious teens, trying to upset Daddy. Enjoy your hell ladies. As you have likely figured out, it ain't all wine, truffles, and caviar. In short, these women are of no interest to me, at least in this hypothesis.

My fascination is with the White women who might not normally vote Democratic, but find themselves drawn to Obama, like a moth to a flame, no, no…like a mosquito to a bug zapper! Yes, that's more analogous!

These White women would have you believe that it is because of the war, or Obama's stance on socialized medicine, or one of Obama's other inane, nonsensical policies. That's what they want you to believe. But I know the truth.

I believe this demographic has come down with a fever that is typically limited to warm, tropical environs, though it has become more prevalent in the US. Yes America, there has been an outbreak of not Scarlet, not Yellow, but Jungle Fever with these White women.

This demographic of White women of which I speak are the women who attended mostly White high schools and played it straight. They dated Eric, John, or Bill, the all-America White teenage boy, and either married him, or maybe three to five White boyfriends removed from him is their present husband.

Now life is mundane and tedious, and they have begun to reflect on the handful of Black boys that were in school. These Black kids were good athletes, good students, but they were "off limits". Nevertheless, secretly the White girls were jonesing for these Black stallions; their lust remained hidden. But Jungle Fever lay dormant, boiling like a cauldron deep within.

Lost in suburbia, the symptoms of Jungle Fever are difficult to spot. The occasional Black UPS driver or oil change mechanic might invoke a headrush, however not enough of a sympton to allow the disease to the surface. Then Obama enters, stage leftist or "leftest", pick the one you like!

"Oh my God, Sharon, did you see that Black guy with the funny name…Usamba or something? He is so good-looking, and articulate…and clean!"

The fever rushes to the surface like an erupting volcano, evoking in these White women the memories and pent up, unexplored passions from their pasts. They recall all the Reggies, the Tyrones, and Dmitriuses from high school.

Toys in hand, this group of White women all across America began indulging their Mandingo fantasies, deepening their love for Obama.

Their friends say," He's a terrorist-lover." "I don't kayer," they moan.

He's unqualified. "I don't kayer."

He has ideas that will bankrupt the country. "I don't kayer."

He's a socialist. "I don't kayer."

He's a racist. "I don't kayer."

He wants to kill babies after they are born. "I don't kayer."

He hates America? "I don't kayer! I LOOOVE him!", they say sobbing.

So far, no cure offered by the McCain campaign can combat Jungle Fever. Black Republican scientists are working feverishly (pardon intended!) on an antidote, which will involve Sarah Palin's DNA.

That's my rant!

Powell Demoted to "Field Negro"

The video below shows Al Sharpton demeaning General Powell as a "house Negro", when Powell was with the Bush administration, and a noted Black Republican. Little did Sharpton know what was to come in the past week, with Powell's announcement to support Barack Obama.

APO Oct 27, 2008 - In an apparent retaliatory move of Colin Powell's endorsement of Barack Obama, President Bush is stripping Colin Powell of his rank. When asked about the recent demotion, President Bush had no comment. The White House press secretary said that if you review the Sharpton comments [video below], you will see that Powell was not demoted, but instead was reassigned to the FIELD!

Black Legion of Superheroes!

Though not widely known outside The Black community, Blacks have a checkered past in the area of racism against our own. For example, "light-skinned" Blacks were considered superior to "dark-skinned" Blacks, mainly because light skin was closer to white, i.e. Caucasian. In my childhood, it was not uncommon to hear comments about a Black not passing the "color test", meaning that he or she might be a shade "too Black". We called each other names like Black Sambo, and used terms such as mulatto, octoroon, and quadroon to describe our various colors. Too Black and you were considered "African", a derogatory term for Blacks back in the 60s. But there was no such thing as "too light".

Black on Black racism continued with physical features like hair. Blacks had a grading system for hair back in the day. Blacks with fine, softer hair were considered to have "good hair", good being defined as "closer to White hair", and were looked on as better than their counterparts, who had "bad hair".

"Bad hair", or hair that was more course and more typical in our culture was called kinky or nappy. Many Blacks were so stigmatized by their hair, that an entire industry was spawned to "soften" the hair, a term called 'processing'. Blacks up until around the late-70s wore their processed hair slicked back, adding palm-aid to keep it in place. A notable Black example with 'processed' hair, though he wore more of a bouffant style, was Al Sharpton. Few Blacks wanted to have "bad hair", because in the Black community you were talked about, belittled, besmirched.

Circa 80s introduced the Jeri-curl or S-curl. This added the larger curl, which more closely mimicked the hair Blacks wanted to have. Pursuit of "good hair" is one of the reasons for many of the interracial relationships of the time, and one of the reasons for Black men's so-called fascination with White women.

The lips that have made famous Angelina Jolie were a trademark characteristic of Blacks. However for Blacks that feature was not considered endearing back in the day, as the Hollywood crowd might have us believe. Quite the contrary. Back in the day, if you wanted to really get a Black person upset, one might call him a "…big lipped, nappy-headed, Black as tar, big ass so and so". This brings us to our "junk in the trunk".

Yes, Blacks are known for our "junk", aka ghetto booties. Not to get all "Jimmy the Greek" on you, but it is likely less genetic, and more to do with the type of work that we did many years ago. So again as flat-bottomed women everywhere are paying thousands of dollars to get surgical "junk", genetic "junk" in the Black community was again be a focus of derision and ridicule in the past, particularly for women.

I'm happy to report that Blacks have shifted focus from our intra-racial differences, and in fact, thankfully Blacks are seeing the beauty of our people in all our splendor, be they so light, "…they make Michael Jackson look Black", or so dark, "…they could leave fingerprints on charcoal". That was for those of you who play the "dozens".

So again, Blacks have finally evolved from this nonsense, and now embrace all our beautiful qualities, as we should. However with this evolution from body parts, there has been devolution to racism that is targeted at Blacks with differing political views. And the new racism is directed at Black Republicans.

Shhh…There are Blacks, shhh, who are Republicans…in secret. I know, because I have met them in the speak-easies, whispering quietly about their drug of choice…Republican politics.

So I know a "user" when I see one. And take heed folks, there are more Black Republicans than you think. Most are scared, truly scared to voice their views, particularly to other Blacks. And scared they should be, because the backlash can be disturbing. Because Black Democrats are racists against Black Republicans. Those racist Black Democrats are some silly Negros! Here is why I call them silly Negros…

Negros in the 60s were taught…better word, indoctrinated by Democrats to be racist against learned people, particularly learned Republicans, and they are most cruel against learned Black Republicans, practicing fratricide in that respect. If a young Black child grows up "talking proper", and doesn't learn his second language, ebonics, he is teased at the very least, and likely attacked by silly Negros. Silly Negros literally want to beat the intelligence out of our brightest Black kids. You will hear comments like, "…ah, he wona [want to] be white." No silly Negro, "…he wona be intelligent". I believe if Negros had a test for Republicanism at birth, no Black Republicans would get a chance at life. Lord Obama would certainly kill Republican Blacks, reminiscent of Ramses in Egypt killing the first born of the Jews!

Democrats love silly Negros! That's the truth, the whole truth, and nothin' but. Democrats need silly Negros, because silly Negros (read slowly) eat what you feed them. Silly Negros are content with the leftovers of the pig…you know, the "chitlin's" and "pig's feet", while (read slowly) Massa eats the meat. You know they must have been starving to decide to eat pig gut?!! And pig skin?!! Well damnit, I want pork chops, not pork rinds!

So continuing with the metaphor, Black Republicans started killing their own pigs, and eating pork tenderloin and center-cut pork steak. "No pickled pigs feet for us!", they protested.

So the silly Negro got jealous and decided like every good Democrat, that he wanted the Black Republican's meat, though the silly Negro did nothing to deserve it. Being outnumbered 94 to 6, the Black Republican was forced to give up his pork, and go underground, so to say.

But while underground, Black Republicans trained like Navy Seals. Sleep deprivation (metaphorical references), debilitating wet and cold, pushing the log above our heads until our shoulders were on fire. We trained at the ocean, fighting the surf until waterboarding seems like bobbing for apples.

Not all Black Republicans made it. Some remained scared…silent, closeted, "moderate". [See Colin Powell – Outed!]

But the few who made it through training left hardened, ready for battle. Because we not only have the enemy of 'regular life', we have the enemy of fratricide, i.e. Black on Black racism.

We Black Republicans are a small, but elite fighting force, much like the…The Legion of Superheroes. We call ourselves, The Legion of Black Republican Superheroes!

The Black Republican knows why he enlisted. He knows there can be and will be casualties, but he is willing to sacrifice for the greater good. So we are content to fight back. We speak for White America, saying what Whites wish they could say, because no matter what they say, as a non-Black person they appear racist.

The "Obama Black" is fueled by the duality of a White person's plight…you know, "damned if you do, damned if you don't". They enjoy seeing them squirm. Whites say, "Janice, the printer needs a new Bla…I mean, African-American ink cartridge?", as silly Negros snicker behind their backs!

So the Black Republican Legion of Superheroes, namely Black Intellect, Black Reason, and Black Logic, use our superpowers of intellect, reason and logic to challenge Democrats, wherever they may be. It's difficult, but occasionally we can get one or two of them to mutter something intelligible and lucid, despite their feeble little minds.

Regardless, we pound them with ideas and concepts, notions and speculation, challenging them to think. We provide them with the facts of the Democrat's racist, sexist, and "otherist" past. We inform them that the policies of the Democrats have destroyed and continue to destroy the Black community, the Black family. We challenge them to name one thing, just ONE, that Black voting overwhelmingly Democrat has gotten Blacks, except occasional visits by rich White men and women to Black churches during elections? "What was that little Who'?" I CAN'T HEAR YOU!

So fellow Republicans, rest assured that this small, but elite insurgent force of Black Republicans called The Black Republican League of Superheroes (we are working on shortening this) is on the job and ever vigilant. We have lasers on the targets, and just need F-22 Raptor air support.

In case you were wondering, over the past few years we have been able to marginalize two insurgent targets, namely Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton. These attacks were part of Operation Afro. Both were recently targeted on the ground by our elite force, while Predator Drones fired missiles hitting both their intended targets, right in the wallet.

The operation was a complete success. Both targets have been relegated to meaningless cable shows that get about as much viewership as your kid's YouTube musical. So progress has been made.

However we didn't have enough G-2 on the upstart Obama, so frankly…we were caught off guard. Our White counter-intelligence (pun intended!), the Clintons let us down. Nevertheless we have our core team redirected from other lesser ops, like Tavis Smiley and Tom Joiner. We are learning Legalese and various Arabic dialects, so we can keep the pressure on Obama and his terrorist friends, and all silly Negros.

That's my rant!

The Intervention

I was recently invited by my cousin, a Democrat, to attend a Black Democrat "post debate get-together." As a known Republican in my family and the Black community where I live, they said they were interested in my point of view.

Being a political junkie, I was interested to get my fix. Yes politics is my drug of choice.

The event was advertised as "A Peaceful Discourse on the Subject of Politics - We welcome differing views." I thought to myself, "…Yeah right, and streets named after MLK are the safest streets in America…NOT!" My grandmother didn't raise no fool! Anything that you have to advertise as "peaceful" has the potential to be violent.

But I am not a punk, so I decided to go, as I felt the ideas they would espouse would be "experimental drugs" and would sate my need for the "hard stuff" -- you know, the election, the potential to elect our first terrorist-sympathizer as president, and the people who support him.

As I prepared to go, I "shot up" on my facts, reviewing Unfounded Loyalty, by Dr. Wayne Perryman, a book that was a revelation on how Blacks have been shafted by Democrats for years. I reviewed Timelines of African American History, so I wouldn't get the shakes during the event, and would be properly armed with information on Black Republicans throughout history.

The message coursed through my mind: Republicans, GOOD - Party of Lincoln, freed the slaves, Civil Rights Act of 1875, 1960, 1964, started Historically Black Colleges. Democrats BAD - Jim Crow laws, poll taxes, high taxes, lynchings, George Wallace, Senator Byrd, KKK, racists. My head was spinning, and yes, I was tripping, pupils dilated. I was ready to go.

I hid an extra hit, bringing the book 1001 Things Everyone Should Know About African American History. OK that was enough for me to share with other junkies, should I make a few converts and feel magnanimous. I was willing to share my "stuff".

Into my cousin's car I slid, concealing my 'stash', and wearing sunglasses to hide my dilated pupils and glazed over eyeballs. I wondered why we were taking his hoop-t, and not my Acura. But then again, I was in no condition to drive, Man.

Being a Democrat, he would hit me up for gas I figured, because Lord knows though we were only going seven miles, his "out of gas" light would come on. I anticipated that he would ask me for some money, as if our trip was the reason. This is a textbook Democrat ploy.

Sure enough, a minute later like clockwork there it was. I can't say for sure, but I think he pushed concealed button to get the light to come on.

"Yo Cuz, spot me twenty, til I see you again? I need to get that petro.", my cousin extorted.

I thought, "Only $20…Suckerrrrr! Haha, I had $50 on me and that sucka left $30 on the table."

Fully gassed, we headed off to the event. Left on Russell to Grand. Left on Grand. Two miles…wait a minute, check cashing place, self-serve car wash, liquor store, Chinese restaurant, bail bond, Chinese restaurant, Quik-Trip gas station, liquor store…wait a minute, hmmm…Chinese restaurant, Korean dry cleaner, check cashing place, bail bond, massage parlor [mental note], liquor store, Del Taco…wait a minute! "This is not the place where we are supposed to be going", I shout.

We arrive, where I find other members of my family sitting there, teary eyed, with their letters, notepads and hankerchiefs. There is a guy I don't know, who says to me, "Kevin, your family is here because they all love you," as I glance around the room to see everyone nodding and trying to smile, behind the tears.

The stranger continues, "Your family members are going to say a few things to you, then you can say a few things, then you are free to go."

I was at a Black Republican intervention!!!

So my older sister is first to go, and she says to me, "…Kevin...I've watch you for the past 37 years, since you were eight years old, do this to yourself [pause, wipe tear] and I can't take it anymore. If you insist on being a Black Republican, then I will have no choice but to continue to ask you for money, that I will never repay. And I will continue to show up unannounced at your home, and eat all your food, never bringing a dish. And I will ask you to watch my kids for a minute, only to stay away the entire day, regardless of your plans."

She continued, "...But if you take this gift, and it's a gift of love, that we are offering you today only...and go to 'Rehab for Black Republicans', [intentional run-on sentence, for you purist] and get the help you need, so you will no longer keep asking me for the money back, that you loaned me and instead consider it the gift that it needed to be, though I did ask for a loan, because you have the money, and it wasn't like you would miss it anyway, and stop being 'perturbed' because I won't stop to buy Cokes on the way to your house for dinner…anyway, take the gift!", she implored, yes begged of me.

Next was my cousin, then an uncle, and an aunt…they were ruining my buzz, and I began shouting uncontrollably things like, "reparations, and…Jesse Jackson, and love child, Bill Clinton wears Al Sharpton wigs, US of KKKA, Oprah, socialism, raise my taxes, Madonna loves Bush..." [see if you pick up that double entendre!]

Then I began speaking in tongues, and with Turrets, saying repeatedly, "Mattel an' Mimosa: Tepatated at Bird" [Translated: Michelle and Amarosa separated at birth]. Then somebody slapped me…

I went to rehab, and was walking the line for 32 days. But they found my copy of Black Puritan, Black Republican: The Life and Thought of Lemuel Haynes, 1753-1833 by John Saillant, and they kicked me out. I haven't been clean since.

That's my rant!

Racist Rednecks Spotted in PA

Before we delve into John Murtha’s recent incendiary comments, let’s review what Obama said about people in PA, back in April, as it provides the right context for the Murtha discussion. Obama said at an elitist gathering on the Left Coast…

"Our challenge is to get people persuaded that we can make progress when there's not evidence of that in their daily lives. You go into these small towns in Pennsylvania and, like a lot of small towns in the Midwest, the jobs have been gone now for 25 years and nothing's replaced them. And they fell through the Clinton administration, and the Bush administration, and each successive administration has said that somehow these communities are going to regenerate and they have not.

"And it's not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren't like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.
"

So in his comments, Obama has set the stage for Murtha’s comments, since he talks of the small town Pennsylvanians “cling(ing) to guns or religion…”. This comment was Obamaspeak for small town Midwesterners being stupid, racist, and redneck.

So the other day, in an effort to bolster Obama’s sentiments, 17-year Democratic Representative John Murtha from Pennsylvania said that his constituents, at least those in Western Pennsylvania are racist. He left no doubt about this, as his actual statement was, "There is no question that western Pennsylvania is a racist area."

After ‘catching hell’ as we say in the vernacular, for characterizing Pennsylvania’s hard-working blue-collar constituents as racists, Murtha offered his explanation. "What I said, that indicted everybody, that's not what I meant at all. What I mean is there's still folks that have a problem voting for someone because they are black."

I read Murtha’s comment to my dog, a proud Western PA half-Rotty half Lab mutt, and she is still licking her butt to get the taste out of her mouth. He is still calling them racist, he just didn't use the word!

But Murtha was not finished. He wanted Americans to have complete clarity on his statement. He wanted to further explain that he meant no disrespect to the good people of western PA, you know… and Joe Biden’s neighborhood. Thus, Murtha made the following comment about racism, to WTAE Channel 4 Action News: “It's difficult for many in the area to change…That just five to ten years ago the entire area was redneck.” Oops!

So what Representative Murtha is saying is there is a Hierarchy of Stupidity for residents of Western Pennsylvania. Apparently you begin as (1) a Redneck, then get promoted to (2) Racist. I’m not privy to the talking points, but I’m guessing the next step is (3) Classist. And borrowing from Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs, one is self-actualized with the title of (4) Elitist. Republican’s rarely achieve this title, unless they are “posers”, i.e. Moderates with Liberal leanings [see Colin Powell - http://theblacksphere.blogspot.com/2008/10/colin-powell-outed.html]

I’d like to say to the good hard-working blue-collar folks of Western PA, if you are Rednecks, then be proud Rednecks. I have lots of Redneck friends, and they are the salt of the earth. I wouldn’t take them to a consulate party, but we tailgate often. And we share our disdain of Obama, the real racist.

So let’s discuss racist for a moment. You see, I think there are fewer racists in America than people thinks. I believe that many so-called racists are in fact just regular people, who have tired of the focus of America being on Blacks. I know I am, and I am Black. I want to be like the Asians, where we just run our businesses, and are concerned with the real issues of life, and not how we can get more for doing less. The fact is there are too many able-bodied "porch sitters" in the Black community, waiting on the 1st and the 15th for Massa to provide.

Most people are tired of people, regardless of color, always bitching about their circumstances, given all that America has to offer. These people, and I am one of them, are true patriots, and believe in the American dream and American values. Now I am not saying that they all want my sons to marry their daughters, and that there is no racism in America, or Western PA for that matter. But what I am saying is that most of these people don’t care who the president is, as long as he or she has real American values, not African values, not Muslim values, not Euro-values, but American values!

Why do Obama and Murtha believe Western PA and Midwestern people are racists? And why do Obama and Murtha wonder why these small town values people are so unwilling to accept Black Jesus as their potential savior? They don't have an answer, but I do.

Because what you find in “middle America and small town Pennsylvania” is good old fashioned horse sense. Horse sense is something elitists like Obama don’t understand, and never will. Small towners and Midwesterners live by the saying, “my cow died last night, and I don’t need your bull.”

Most of these people have no problem with Obama being Black. And in fact I’d bet you dollars to dog turds that most actually would gladly embrace an "articulate and...clean" Black candidate who actually held their vision of America, and not the socialist version of the "US of KKKA" that Obama, his consorts, and the media have force-fed them for the last two years.

So what don’t Midwesterners like about Obama in reality? Here’s my guess.

They question Obama’s redistribution of wealth program, aka “trickle up poverty” [http://theblacksphere.blogspot.com/2008/10/messiah-visits-average-joe-satirical.html]. They see it for what it is, which is taking, stealing from the hard-working, blue-collar, small town folks, who have dreams of owning their businesses, and living the American dream. They, like other Americans are tired of being penalized for their dreams superseding Obama’s dream for them. And I can tell you they are pissed about paying for the mistakes of other, like paying for the babies of irresponsible youth, youth who will be turning out in droves to vote for Obama. That is not the dream they, nor anyone else signed up for. Bush is not the "Baby Daddy" of these kids. So why not hold the real "Baby Daddy" responsible. And that is only one example.

They are also tired of paying for America’s so-called poor, who are capable of working and just don’t, providing more excuses than Obama has "uhs". And they are tired of America’s poor who spend their money on frivolities, such as 5000W car stereo systems, spinning wheels, and gaudy “bling”, and none on educating their kids or investing in businesses. America’s poor has Section 8(a) subsidized housing, socialized medicine (yes, we have socialized medicine!), subsidized food programs, subsidized schools, and a host of other programs. The fact is, it “pays” to be poor in America.

These proud West PA people resent the idea of America being an apologist around the world. And Obama is the biggest apologist in the country, unwilling to explain the true heart of America, a heart so large that we give ten times more to world than all other countries combined. The president is the leader of America, as a parent is the leader of his/her family. Talk bad about my children, and see how I respond. Strike one of my kids, and your burial plot will have a sign saying, “occupied” or as Obama would have it "occupado". What type of leader do you think Western PAers and Midwesterners want?

Further, these good solid Americans of Western PA are concerned with an Obama who socializes with terrorists, like Bill Ayers and Rashid Khalidi, people who have nothing but ill-will towards America, an America that they love. They are concerned at how Obama so easily brushes over his associations with people like Rezko, et al, people from whom he has gotten sweetheart deals on his houses, and who knows what else. They know that Obama’s promise for his America and their America are two different things. Obama will live in his $1.6M home in an exclusive area of Chicago, while providing you with your $80K home in a crime-riddled area. When Obama moves into a “real” American neighborhood, and puts his kids in the same schools as ours, then he can talk to me about improving education, because his kids are in an exclusive private school. You think he is trying to get all American children into the school where his daughters attend?

Finally, you will find that many of these people resent the idea of a person with no qualifications, except resume-building, running their country. Many have seen lesser qualified or talented people be promoted ahead of them, in some cases Blacks and in other cases not. So Obama represents an “in your face” promotion, mainly by the Liberal media of a guy who is in no way qualified to be president of this country. Sure, after two years on the job, weren't you qualified to run your company?

These people are not racists, they are realists. And they have sickened of the politics of pimping poverty, and the class warfare of rich against poor. Ask the average American to choose between rich and poor, and outside of some elitist who wants to be considered existential or Nietzschesque, most will answer, “Rich!” Given the choice, I choose that long line with "Rich" at the window. It's lonely in the poor line!

Most people do not want to be rich beyond belief. Most of us just want to not worry about paying bills, and getting some enjoyment out of life, that money can bring. Is there excess in America, yes, and mostly with prominent Democrats. But regardless, if you aspire to be the next Warren Buffet, who is the government to stand in your way. I applaud that type of drive and initiative, and hope I am related to you! Personally I will settle for Kerry or Kennedy money, but then I am a slacker, not setting my sights on Bill Gates money.

The key to the American Dream is pick your level. But if you settle for welfare, and a guy like Obama says he wants to redistribute my wealth to your lazy ass, then I will introduce you to the racist Redneck that lives in me.

So let all us hard working, family-oriented, spiritually-based, gun “will shoot your ass if you break in my house” toting, soccer-coaching, golf-playing, Nascar-loving racist Rednecks UNITE!

That’s my rant!

The Biden Experiment


At some point we have all wondered why in the world would Obama select a de facto knucklehead like Joe Biden as his VP? When you consider that Biden has publicly stated that Obama essentially was not ready for prime time, the choice just didn’t make sense.
Obama is to silk, as Joe is to sandpaper. With the exception of coma victims, we are all aware that Biden suffers from “foot in mouth” disease, and has coined many “Bidenisms” over the past decades. Compound this with Biden always being the smartest guy in the room [Biden will “pencil whip” the crap out of anybody in a resume-writing contest!], and again, you wonder why oh why on ”Obama’s green earth” would he pick Biden?

Biden’s most recent gaff happened today, where he commented without knowing the press was in the back of the room, "...It will not be six months before the world tests Barack Obama like they did John Kennedy…” Biden went on to say, "I can give you at least four or five scenarios from where it might originate [mentioning the Middle East and Russia as possibilities], and he's gonna need help."

Rumor is John McCain dispatched a case of Cristal to Biden by courier, within minutes of Biden’s statement. The note attached said: “It’s three against one…thanks for the support!”

So why did the Anointed One choose Biden? I know you think you know the answer to this, and you likely believe it was because of Biden’s so-called foreign policy experience. Well you would be wrong. Don’t feel bad fellow Republicans, because the answer is not obvious. And you have not been trained to think as Obama does, and I have, so I will explain his reasoning.

The answer is Obama is getting his revenge on White America, and I must admit he is doing it brilliantly. He is essentially exposing a supposedly intellectual, cultured White Senator, as the complete knucklehead that he is. And behind closed doors Obama, Michelle, and Reverend Wright are laughing their butts off at “Black Only” cocktail parties.

Obama is saying, “…here is a man that America holds in the highest regard, and I am showing them (he’s not one of us) and the rest of the world that all these White guys that you hold in such high esteem are two tacos short of a Mexican platter.”

Obama, though only half Black is a self-proclaimed Black man. Obama resents the idea that Blacks are considered less intelligent, and incapable of being in charge. So he had to expose a prominent White man as a dolt. Enter stage left, Joe Biden.

So Obama uses Biden as his public lab rat, performing a "Reverse Dr. Shockley” experiment on America, called The Biden Experiment. The Biden Experiment  intentionally “dumbs down” Biden publicly, thus making Obama appear to be more brilliant than he really is. And all Obama has to do let Biden out of his cage for the experiment to work.

Now we Republicans have known for some time that Biden’s “engine’s running, but nobody’s driving”, though you likely didn’t know of the Top Secret program now officially known as The Biden Experiment.

However, due to developments from today, in an extremely rare move, Obama ended funding to the program. Apparently Biden is starting to become more like that “Uncle” Obama refers to from time to time. 

Asked for comments on the program by Fox news, and Obama’s comment was “...we are considering muzzling Uncle Joe or buying a new bus.” We were left to interpret the meaning of the second part of the comment.

An Obama publicist asking to be anonymous commented off the record, that “The Biden Experiment was an insurance policy for Obama, if elected, since nobody could possibly want Biden as president.”

Fox new was able to track down John McCain for comment, and McCain said that "...he was unaware of The Biden Experiment, but he was sad to see this program not get future funding…at least for the next two weeks."

That's my rant!

Obama Grandma Gravely Ill

According to Jennifer Loven of the AP, Junior Senator from Illinois and the man who would be president is canceling “…nearly all his campaign events Thursday and Friday to fly to Hawaii to visit his suddenly gravely ill 85-year old grandmother [Madelyn Payne Durham]”. According to the article, Obama’s grandmother’s health had deteriorated “to the point where her situation is very serious”.

So first, I find it interesting that Obama is canceling nearly all his campaign events. I guess some campaign events are just a wee bit more important than a gravely ill grandmother, at least in Obama’s world.

So what is trumping Grandma’s grave illness? According to Loven, “events originally planned for Madison, Wis., and Des Moines, Iowa, on Thursday will be replaced with one in Indianapolis before he makes the long flight to Hawaii.” So stumping in Indiana is apparently even more grave to Obama, than grandma.

There is no need to panic Democrats, for you will get your money’s worth. As campaign spokesperson Jen Psaki assures the faithful, “…On Friday, Obama's wife, Michelle, will sub for Obama at rallies in Akron and Columbus, in Ohio.”

So let me get this straight. The woman who Obama says is one of the most important people in his life is gravely ill, and his wife is not going to visit, but will campaign? I wonder if Michelle would have joined if Granny was Blaaa-aack? And if Michelle’s absence is not insult enough, Obama isn’t taking his daughters to see their great-grandmother, possibly for the last time. I wonder if they would go visit Black Granny, if the situation were reversed? I wonder what John and Cindy McCain would do? I wonder what The Palins would do? Actually I don’t have to wonder what the Republican ticket would do.

We are told in Loven’s report that Obama is expected to resume campaigning on Saturday, at an undecided location in the West. You read that right. Obama is doing a “drive by” in Hawaii to see his dying grandmother, then he is back on the campaign trail, the next day.

In a word…Wow! When you consider the flight time and time change and all the logistics around secret service, and so on, Obama may not have time for the limo to stop rolling, before he is back on the presumptive presidential plane, headed back to “an undecided location in the West.” My advice to grandma is to get nowhere near that limo, lest she end up under it…

I’m guessing the conversation on this “distraction” of his grandmother’s imminent death went something like this:

Aide to Obama: “Mr. President?”

Obama: I love it when you call me that. Yes, what do you need?

Aide: Sorry to bother you, Your Eminence, particularly in your time of grief [Aide almost laughs]. But we need to review your itinerary for your visit to see your gravely ill grandmother, matriarch of your family and woman who gave you your start in life and set your value system.

Obama: OK, but be brief, as I am reviewing a stump speech for my campaign swing out West tomorrow.

Aide: OK Sir. Fly to Hawaii, landing in Honolulu at 1400 Honolulu time

Obama: Check.

Aide: Spend undetermined days with your grandmother and other White family members, and help the family get things in order…

Obama (interrupts): Let’s change that. I will exit the plane, enter the limo, roll down the limo window, and issue a statement to the press. Statement as follows: I will be setting up a commission to study and understand how I can blame the death of my grandmother on eight years of failed Bush policy, and a lack of healthcare that has not allowed this woman, scratch that, my loving grandmother who raised me, to survive well into her nineties, and the lack of clean energy, and global warming.

Aide: OK, I will make that change in the agenda, and order a teleprompter. OK, let’s continue. 1420 Zulu…

Obama (interrupts): What did you call me Sucka? I’m not Zulu, I’m Kenyan

Aide: No Your Highest of the High, I was speaking in military time…depart the airport at 1420 Zulu, i.e. 20 minutes after arrival.

Obama: I was about to nunchuk you, you mutha…well anyway, I understand now.

Aide: Thank you for your kind indulgence Messiah. I will continue. Take limo back to the presidential jet, without visiting the hospital.

Obama: Check.

Aide: Take jet back to undisclosed location out West to resume the campaign.

Obama: Check

Aide: Set up press conference reinforcing eight years of failed Bush policy as the reason for your grandmother’s illness, and link McCain. And don’t forget to mention the financial crisis was McCain’s fault.

Obama: Check.

According to the article, “…Citing the family's desire for privacy, [Robert] Gibbs, [another spokesperson for Obama] would not discuss the nature of Dunham's illness. It seemed likely that she was close to death, as Gibbs said that "everyone understands the decision that Sen. Obama is making." Dunham turns 86 on Sunday.”

Here’s a hint to the nature of Durham’s illness: (1) broken bones, (2) contusions, (3) lacerations, and (4) concussion all associated with being thrown under a bus by one’s grandson!

Loven writes, “…In a campaign ad this year, Obama described his Dunham as the daughter of a Midwest oil company clerk who "taught me values straight from the Kansas heartland" — things like "accountability and self-reliance. Love of country. Working hard without making excuses. Treating your neighbor as you'd like to be treated." All lessons completely unheeded by Obama.

All I can say is I’m touched that Obama would take less than a day from his record-breaking fundraising, and hectic campaign schedule to pay homage to the woman who raised him, and “taught him his values.”

In that statement, yet again Obama has thrown his grandmother under the bus. Because it is doubtful that she taught Obama to be so relentless in his pursuit of power, that he would treat the matriarch of his family with such utter disdain. This is a glimpse of how Obama will treat America. Hopefully if this wonderful woman happens to pass away, Obama may have someone from the campaign send flowers.

War Update - Part Deux

As a follow on to my post the other day about how America is winning the war, I wanted to highlight recent actions in Tikrit, and how the US continues its dominance in other areas of Iraq. Needless to say, this is not good news for Obama.

As you view the video of the insurgents, you will undoubtedly hear in their rhetoric that they are ideologically in sync with our own Democrats, such as Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reed, and too manyu others to mention. It might surprise you to discover that many of these insurgents have received their educations from prominent universities. After viewing this video it should enlighten even the casual observer as to how academia is able to hide terrorists so well.

With close inspection of the video, though grainy, you should notice the leftmost insurgent, pun intended, as he is rumored to be Humbuqu "Harry" Obama, Obama's half-Kenya, half-Somali cousin, who bears a striking resemblance to his Americanized cousin, except that he is, well... "articulate, but not as clean".

The video is graphic. I think you will find one of the insurgent’s behavior reminiscent of many of America’s Democratics in Congress, and Obama supporters. The word that comes to mind is "childish".

The British Interviewer however never loses control of the interview, despite the distractions, and in what could have been a highly volatile situation. She maintains professionalism throughout.

video

It should be noted that shortly after this interview was held, a Predator drone flying 10,000 feet above took out all of this insurgent group. The missile was marked, “McCain-Palin 2008”.

Colin Powell "Outed"

Colin Powell was finally outed as a Democrat. Rumors have persisted for some time of Powell being a closeted Democrat, being spotted at “dress up” parties, bath houses, and movie theaters where they show, well…foreign films! Recently Powell was seen, as one observer put it, ‘wiping away tears’ as he exited the theater where Rent was playing.

Interviewed in the Green Room of the Today Show, Barney Frank commented, “…I think most people have suspected for some time that Powell was at the very least ‘bi’, i.e. a Moderate, and I suspected for some time he was a full-fledged Dem.

To put the rumors to bed, today Powell formally came out, announcing on Meet the Press that he would be voting for Obama, saying in a high pitch voice, and with a finger snap in a z-formation, “…I ain’t cha Mama, and I’m for Obama”!

As to why he was coming out, Powell said he is voting for Obama, because he is a “transformational figure”.

Powell added, "I can't deny that it will be a historic event when an African-American becomes president…It would also not only electrify the country, but electrify the world." Powell continued, "And I come to the conclusion that because of his ability to inspire, because of the inclusive nature of his campaign, because he is reaching out all across America, because of who he is and his rhetorical abilities — and you have to take that into account — as well as his substance — he has both style and substance, he has met the standard of being a successful president, being an exceptional president."

I will agree with Secretary Powell that Obama has a bit of style, which I describe as “two-bit actor”, or “snake oil salesman”. I want to apologize to all two-bit actors and snake oil salesmen in advance for this comparison, as I mean you no disrespect. I only mean to compare your “gift of gab” and ability to delivering lines. At times, Obama is a gifted snake oil salesman and two-bit actor, again I beg the indulgence of those who have these careers, as I respect you. I do require my president to have a bit more, well...substance.

Speaking of substance. To say Obama has substance, is “substance abuse” at the most heinous level! And I can only wonder what substance the General was abusing when he came to this conclusion. Needless to say, Secretary Powell and I disagree greatly on this.

Obama made good grades, was the president of Law Review at Harvard, and became a practicing lawyer. These are notable achievements. However, beyond that Obama has proven only that he knows how to manipulate any system for his own political benefit. And Obama has used the law masterfully in his pursuit of power, but for all his so-called talent, the man has accomplished next to nothing.

In the IL State Senate, Obama sponsored 823 bills, of which nine passed. Don't believe me, here is the link to his record.

http://www.nytimes.com/imagepages/2007/07/29/us/politics/20070730_OBAMA_GRAPHIC.html]

The overwhelming theme is “…a bill to establish a commission” or “…a bill to establish a study”. Forget the idea that a guy can’t get a fraction of his bills through committee (thankfully).

In the US Senate, it was no different. Since Jan 24, 2005, Obama has sponsored 121 bills, and co-sponsored 504 during the same period

[http://www.govtrack.us/congress/person.xpd?id=400629],

yet he has only gotten three pieces of legislation enacted, the most recent was a law banning dangerous mercury exports. Wow, that’s an issue all Americans have at the forefront of their lives. I can find people who work at Ronald McDonald house, who have contributed more to society than Obama, and I am being completely serious.

With the exception of helping drive America’s financial institutions to the point of bankruptcy, Obama and his cronies get nothing done. And below is an example of how the lawyer in Obama thinks. And if you think he will be any different as president, think again.

The professor of a Contract Law class asked one of his better students, "If you were to give someone an orange, how would you go about it?"

The student replied, "Here's an orange."

The professor was outraged. "No! No! Think like Barack Obama!"

The student then replied, "Okay. I'd tell him `I hereby uh, give and convey to you, uh all and singular, my estate and interests, rights, claim, title, and advantages, of uh, and in, said orange, uh, together with all its rind, juice, pulp, and seeds, and uh, all rights and advantages with full power to bite, cut, freeze and otherwise eat, uh, the same, or give the same away with and without the pulp, juice, rind and seeds, uh, anything herein before or hereinafter or uh, in any deed, or deeds, instruments of whatever nature or kind whatsoever to the contrary in anywise notwithstanding...and uh, I will be taxing that orange!'"

Does Colin Powell really believe that Obama has substance? Not! Perhaps this is payback by Powell for his treatment by the Bush administration during his UN briefings regarding invading Iraq, a stance for which I respected Secretary Powell. Despite his coming out, I continue to accept General Powell as a patriot, and for his contribution to America. It took courage for him to 'out' himself as a Dem.

That’s my rant!

Obama '09 Job Plan

For all Republicans, anybody with half a brain, and 2% of Democrats, it is evident that the Democrats were the genesis of the financial meltdown that Obama has so skillfully heaped on the tortured shoulders of Senator John McCain. The two ironies are that McCain is the person who rang the warning bell on the crisis and the corruption associated with it to begin with, while Obama was one of the corruptors, receiving lots of mula to help Fannie and Freddie! I promise this will not be yet another blog about the financial crisis or the bailout, but I do want to put it in a bit of context, then we will focus on the Obama ’09 Job Report.

So the crisis began under Jimmy Carter, the 2nd worst president in US history, next to Clinton. Carter engendered the Community Redevelopment Act, a well-intended law designed to encourage minority homeownership. Democrats have good ideas, as they are idealists. However they rarely look beyond their noses, and then play “Who’s on first”, when the cake hits the fan. So Carter got it started, then Clinton entered stage “left”, pardon the pun.

Now I won’t give Clinton all the blame since it was two Republicans who sponsored this bill. The Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act, enacted November 12, 1999, is an Act of the United States Congress which repealed part of the Glass-Steagall Act of 1933, opening up competition among banks, securities companies and insurance companies. The Glass-Steagall Act prohibited a bank from offering investment, commercial banking, and insurance services. Clinton should have vetoed this bill, and he knows it.

He knows what the truth can do to his legacy, or what legacy he believes he as. So in an effort not to torpedo his legacy, Clinton actually “Obamaed” his party, throwing them under the proverbial bus [Hey Grandma and Reverend Wright, it’s Barack!].

In a statement to ABC’s Chris Cuomo, Clinton said that Democrats for years have been “…resisting any efforts by Republicans in the Congress or by me when I was President to put some standards and tighten up a little on Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.”

Obama and his advisors have released their ’09 Jobs Plan, in a bold and pre-emptive move, and I was privy to the advanced report. Please review the video posted, as the report is a testament to Obama’s and his staff’s bold new ideas for America.

War Update - Part Un

I usually don’t watch 60 Minutes, because I find them to be liberal hacks most of the time. However, recently they did a story on how the US is winning Sadr City in Iraq with a new strategy. I found it interesting that their timing on a topic like this cannot help Obama, and in fact would be more helpful to McCain. Who are they, and what did they do with the real 60 Minutes?

It turns out that 60 Minutes was given clearance to discuss new technology that is being deployed in Iraq, that essentially allows the military to hunt and kill insurgents, pretty much at will. Prior to the 60 Minutes expose, Bob Woodward in his latest book release alluded to how we were winning. The information at the time was classified, thus he could not discuss the way we were winning openly. Apparently the gauntlet is down. Here is a link to the video -
http://cnettv.cnet.com/9742-1_53-50004046.html

Woodward’s comment was “…I wouldn’t want to be an insurgent leader in Iraq, knowing what I know”. And after seeing the piece on 60 Minutes I know why. I won’t bore you with the details, since the link is much more informative. But cutting to the chase, I can tell you that Woodward was right. The insurgent leaders are running for the hills, and frankly it’s not safe there!

The new technology and new methodology for waging this war is to essentially watch the insurgents as they do their dirty work, such as planting roadside bombs (IEDs), and fire RPGs, all while we get them on camera real-time with a nearly undetectable UAV or “Shadow drone” flying high above. As the bad guys reassemble to congratulate themselves, an armed UAV or “Predator drone” is dispatched to send a Hellfire missile to “…hit ‘em, where the good Lord split ‘em”. The 60 Minutes report actually showed video of the system in action.

In one video, a team of insurgents tries to recover a mortar tube from a bombed vehicle. Then like the sons-of-motherless-goats that they are, they run from the scene of the crime, pack up the RPG unit, and load it in the back of a waiting car. The insurgents transfer the weapon, and head through the city to an open field, where they are greeted with an American-made “Tony Montana - Say Hello To My Little Friend”, laser-guided hellfire missile, courtesy of the world’s best military. And the military showed other examples of surveillance, and said that they can wait hours before executing a strike, because of “persistent surveillance”. Persistent surveillance allows our military to watch a target for as many as ten hours, so the bad guys think they are safe. And as soon as they show their face, we introduce them to their American ingenuity.

So what is the message to the rest of the terrorist world? I quote George Bush - “…If you jack with Uncle Sam, we’ll jack you up! We don’t care if you’re in the mountains of Afghanistan or the streets of San Francisco (homage to Karl Malden), we will find you, and we will castrate you. We know you’ve been promised virgins, but trust us, you won’t need your nuggets where you’re going. Yes, we are bad motha ‘shut yo mouths’!” [OK, Bush didn’t say that, but it what he would say if I asked him!]

The real shame of all of this is that the media will not credit Bush and team for showing the world that America is without a doubt the most ingenious country in the world. We are problem solvers. We have tactics and strategies. What's the word I'm searching for? Yes “strategery” Hopefully our technology will preclude terrorists from wanting to fight us.

Of course Obama won’t admit to this tactic working. He will give his liberal talking point that we “…shouldn’t have been in Iraq to begin with, blah blah blah wahn wahn [Charlie Brown’s teacher]. “

But eventually with this new strategy, the US will need fewer troops, because the success in Sadr City will be duplicated in other Iraqi towns. And like in Sadr City, the people will be providing intelligence to the military on weapons stores, and the location of the bad guys [Definition for Democrats: Bad Guys - “Bad guys” are not the US military, but the Iraqi insurgents…just a point of clarification]. And eventually, Iraq will go back to a normal way of life.

Is it still dangerous, sure. But there is remarkable improvement. And because of the efforts of Bush, McCain, and our extraordinary armed forces, we will cut this war short, and start getting our troops home…with honor.

Next stop, Afghanistan. And don’t think that the word hasn’t leaked out about Sadr City, thanks Al Jazeera. And after we go kick some Al Qaeda butt there, we will sound the warning bell to Iran. And if McCain’s in charge, Iran will listen. 60 Minutes, you surprised me on this one!

By the way, did anybody notice that North Korea destroyed a nuclear plant the other day, a product of The Bush Doctrine? You won’t see this in the mainstream media.

That’s my rant!

Messiah Visits Joe

[Music is playing] It’s a beautiful day in the neighborhood, a beautiful day to be neighborly…would you be my, would you be my…wouldn’t you really like to be my neighbor…

Media, entourage, hangers on, sycophants, leeches, terrorists, excuse me, ‘university professors’, and other malcontents in tow, The Messiah comes down from hither others yon, to get the “common man’s” view on his mandate for America. Average Joe steps out of his home in Middle-Class America, OH to check out all the hoopla and is spotted by an operative for The Messiah. The scene below is what took place.

Master, Master, please look?”

What do you need, Sodomite?

Master, I believe I have found our Average Joe, look yonder.”

And In a scene reminiscent of Moses parting the Red Sea in The Ten Commandments, The Messiah walks towards a home, crowd slowly separating to reveal… Joe the Plumber. There stands Joe the Plumber in the presence of The Messiah, The Messiah looking like an Average Joe himself, sleeves askew.

And as it had been foretold, a light shines down on Joe, so much so there is a reflective sheen on Joe’s fish-belly-white bald head. I watched the video in wonderment, as Joe is about to spend five minutes with the Saviour of America…perhaps the world!

[I know this is a satirical blog, however below are some of the actual quotes taken directly from the 1video of this encounter.]

The Messiah says to Joe, “…Yes Sir, what’s your name?”

Joe replies, “Name’s Joe Wurzelbacher.”

Good to see you, Joe.

Joe continues, “I’m getting ready to buy a company that makes ‘bout 200 uh, 250, uh 70, 80 thousand dollars a year. Your new tax plan is gonna tax me more, isn’t it?”

The Messiah, not pleased with Joe’s line of questioning, replies [1:06 seconds from the end of the video], “…I do believe that for folks like me, who are, you know, have worked hard, but frankly also been lucky, um I don’t mind paying just a little bit more than the waitress who I just met over there…”

The Messiah went on to explain his policy on “Trickle Up Poverty” - “…If the economy’s good for folks from the bottom up, it’s gonna be good for everybody…”

There were two key messages in The Messiah’s comments: (1) People making over $250K haven’t necessarily earned it, and in fact are “just lucky”, and (2) Trickle Up Poverty trumps Trickle Down Economics. Let’s briefly explore both these messages from The Messiah.

First, it is a self-imposed polygraph, when Obama says that he “worked hard”. He literally stumbles over the thought, as he speaks it. And the idea that people making over $250K are just lucky is integral to the understanding of Obama and his “et al”.

I have said for some time now that the reason wealthy Democrats are indeed willing to pay more in taxes is most haven’t earned their money. They feel as if they are stealing. Look at the ridiculous incomes of people doing what they truly love, like (a) actors, singers, writers, artists, etc, and (b) those who were born into royalty, such as the Kennedy’s. And then there are the (c)gigolos like John Kerry who marry into money, which is closely related to (b). Point is, rich Democrats don’t believe people actually work for a living. They think we all feel like we are stealing. After all, don't you arrive to work in limos and helicopters, and shoot scenes in places like London and Paris, party on yachts, and eat at lavish restaurants on a daily basis?

These people live on trust funds, residuals, and royalties. If Streisand doesn’t make another CD or sing another song, the money will just keep coming in. Teddy Kennedy’s trust fund income is larger than the GDP of Haiti. Obama’s adult life is not much different, now that he has rock star status. And his past wasn’t so bad either.

Essentially Obama has gone through life with a silver spoon, yet decrying all that life has provided him. His life in comparison to most has been relatively easy, and it keeps getting better. He has parlayed his silver spoon background, and bi-racial culture into a Vegas progressive slot-machine jackpot payout.

Obama was the Black “exception” growing up. You know, the Black guy that Whites would say, “…Barry is not like other Blacks. He’s so smart, articulate…[and clean]”. Barry [I call him Barry, because this was the pre-Messiah time in his life] appreciated these comments, and knew that this was his ticket up, as he never needed a ticket out.

He cultivated White relationships, knowing that they viewed him as the Black exception, and this was a big advantage. Barry was a novelty and felt this way, though again, he recognized his advantage. Nevertheless he harbored secret resentments for Whites, resentments not born of anything White America had ever done against him directly, but only anecdotally.

Phyllis Schlafly so eloguently writes, “Obama describes [in Dreams from My Father] how [Obama] he deliberately separated himself from his multiracial heritage in order to give himself a 100 percent black persona, different and alienated from the white world around him. Obama writes that the book is "a record of a personal, interior journey" to establish himself as "a black American."

With his new all-black identity, Obama stews about injustices that he never personally experienced, and feeds his warped worldview by withdrawing into a "smaller and smaller coil of rage." He lives with a "nightmare vision" of black powerlessness.”

Confused, Obama wandered through the world looking for guidance, which he found in the countryside of Kenya, and from radical consorts, who felt that America is a gluttonous, self-indulgent pig, ready for slaughter. So Obama sees our so-called self-indulgence, and compares it to the way of life of people in Kenya, as an example. He said in one speech that America could "save energy by turning our thermostats to 80 degrees, instead of 72." Why don’t we just turn them off, and all live in thatched huts too?

In Obama’s world-outside-of-his-world, $250K is rich. But make no mistake about it, Obama's view of wealth for us does not apply to him. It’s “…do as I say, not as I do”.

Obama will never live a normal life again, president or not. He will command ridiculous amounts of money for speaking engagements. He will write more books. He will consult with industry leaders, and be a darling of Hollywood for the rest of his days. He will hobnob with the wealthiest people in the world, and he will be embraced by his Muslim ideologues. So these policies are meant to help impoverished Blacks in America, whether impoverished by fate or by choice. So what if helps a few other cultures, by casting such a wide net. The point is to repay Blacks.

Let’s move on to The Messiah’s second message: I affectionately call The Obama Economic Plan, “Trickle Up Poverty”. I cannot take credit for the term, as I heard it on talk radio from a caller. Nevertheless, I completely endorse the concept, and usurp the usage of the term.

So in describing TUP, I will put it this way. I can hardly wait to work for my next poor, as in broke employer. I know that The Messiah’s plan will put more money back into the hands of people who haven’t earned it, and don’t know what to do with it when they have it. However through some stroke of genius, these folks will magically create businesses. They will invest in and grow their businesses, thus creating more jobs and opportunities, employing the middle-class and the rich. And as The Messiah said to Joe, “I think when you spread the wealth around, it’s good for everybody.” And so the Trickle Up Poverty doctrine is born. So it is written, so it shall be done.

So here’s the wrap. Old Joe the Plumber was just minding his own business, when the chariots arrived with The Messiah. He asked a simple question. That’s all it takes, when you challenge a god. The liberal media piranhas are picking the flesh clean off Joe the Plumber's bones. After all, Joe isn’t a licensed plumber and he owes taxes. Tragic, particularly when compared to the trivial things that friends of Obama have done, like blowing up police headquarters (Ayers), and firing missiles into Israel from the Gaza strip (Khalidi). Given the relevance of Joe's faux pas', these new revelations against Joe certainly negate the validity of Joe's question, right?

Last time I checked, you didn’t need a license to buy a company. And as for owing taxes, well I think this was Joe’s point – he is paying too much in taxes already. So the guy is late paying his taxes. Big whoop. Joe’s only point was that he wants to buy his company, and he doesn’t want to “gift” his money to some schmuck who is too lazy to work for his own, because he is avoiding child support, or is ‘building his record label’. And if Joe does want to give his money away, why can’t he do it, and not The Messiah? After all, it’s not the government’s money.

That’s my rant!
