Michelle Obama disgusts me. But, hey, just look at the way she dresses! I am sure that the local rags won’t touch this one. Her fashion sense is out of this world!


Michelle Obama Needs Miss Manners’ Help in Dressing
By Kyle-Anne Shiver

Rarely do I give a flying flip about what the first lady wears.  I’m not that shallow or flighty.  I don’t read fashion magazines; I have a real life to live.  I don’t spend time with women who are so into such things they don’t have time for genuinely important things.  But when dressing for a memorial service, anyone over the age of 12 ought to know that discretion, respect and good manners call for wearing inconspicuous clothing, generally black.

WTF over?

Look at me! I’m an attention whore!

Regardless of your feelings on President Bush, you have to admit, he’s more of a class act than President Obama ever will be. Obama failed once again in how he reacted to the massacre at Fort Hood.

George & Laura Still a Class Act
By Kyle-Anne Shiver

Last Friday, in the immediate aftermath of the Fort Hood terror attack, President Obama was no-doubt conducting focus group surveys to determine the possible political fallout as a result of the first terror attack on our soil since 9/11, while former President George W. Bush and his wife, Laura, went in secret to personally console the victims’ families.

As Fox News reported the next day, their visit was without any press coverage at President Bush’s instruction.  The former first couple traveled from their ranch in Crawford, Texas a couple of hours away from Fort Hood to meet for hours with the grieving families of Hasan’s victims.

A rather surprising source of praise for President Bush…

Thank you former President George W. Bush and former First Lady Laura Bush

We know absolutely no one in Bush family circles and have never met former President George W. Bush or his wife Laura.

If you have been reading us for any length of time, you know that we used to make fun of “Dubya” nearly every day…parroting the same comedic bits we heard in our Democrat circles, where Bush is still, to this day, lampooned as a chimp, a bumbling idiot, and a poor, clumsy public speaker.

Oh, how we RAILED against Bush in 2000…and how we RAILED against the surge in support Bush received post-9/11 when he went to Ground Zero and stood there with his bullhorn in the ruins on that hideous day.

We were convinced that ANYONE who was president would have done what Bush did, and would have set that right tone of leadership in the wake of that disaster.  President Gore, President Perot, President Nader, you name it.  ANYONE, we assumed, would have filled that role perfectly.

Go read the rest…

What’s wrong with socialism? It is completely incompatible with freedom. That, and socialism is all its forms has never worked. It always ends up destroying the society it is used on. It’s absolutely amazing to me that academia continues to try and push this form of government when history has shown it to be the worst form of government.

What’s Wrong With Socialism?
By
Joe Herring

I recall a conversation I had with a young coworker in the latter weeks of Obama’s campaign for president. Joe the plumber had just exposed the redistributionist bent of the candidate, and I expressed my assessment of Mr. Obama as a not-so-closeted socialist. My coworker then quite earnestly asked, “What’s so wrong with socialism?”

I initially assumed he must be joking, although his face gave no indication. I stared at him dumbfounded, only later realizing I must have looked like a palsied old man — my mouth working wordlessly, the incomprehension as evident on my face as the sincerity on his. It eventually dawned on me that he really didn’t know what was wrong with socialism. I began reciting the litany of horrors: the crimes of the Holocaust, the purges of the Soviets, the thuggery and inhuman brutality of the statist regimes of the last century. The Nazis, for crissake! How could he not know about the evil of the Nazis? He listened to all of this, nodding his understanding as he recognized some of the events I described, but I could still see a question behind his eyes. While he had been taught of the existence of these atrocities, he had not been clued into the one commonality they shared. They were all perpetrated by the adherents of various forms of socialism. Indeed, such crimes were the only outcome possible.

I shall criticize Islam every time some Muslim asshole carries out a terrorist attack shouting “Allahu akbar,” or referencing Islam, or calling my country the “Great Satan.” Islam can kiss my Infidel ass. Islam and terrorism go hand in hand. There have been 19000 terrorist attacks carried out by, wait for it; wait for it; Muslim assholes. Nope. Not Christians, not Buddhists, not Jews, not Taoists, not Hindus, but Muslims.

You dickheads that want to quote the Koran, how about quoting those verses that talk about killing us infidels? That whole religion is based on a pack of lies that were espoused by a murdering scumbag, pedophile by the name of Muhammad. Piss on Muhammad.

We can’t hurt the poor Muslim’s feelings; they might rise up and kill people. Oh. They don’t need that excuse do they? Has anyone noticed how the media has been tripping over themselves to call this anything but Islamofascism? Just saying.

It Isn’t Political Correctness, It’s Shariah
By
Pamela Geller

In surveying the cultural carnage in the wake of the worst terrorist attack on a military installation in US history, it bears noting that there have been seismic shifts in America. When America was free of the shackles of Islam, say, fifty years ago, the current response to such an attack by an enemy faction would have been unthinkable.

I have watched in abject horror the stunning reaction of elites in this country to this act of war.  The denial, the submission, the excuses, the dodging, the self-flagellation, the shame, the deceiving of the American people by the media, the military, society, law enforcement, authorities and politicians, all the way up to and including the White House, amounts to the enforcement of Shariah law.

Does Islam Breed Violence?
By
Amil Imani

There is a division of the house. On one side are the politically correct in government, the leftist mainstream media, and a raft of Islamist apologists. One and all are tripping over each other in reassuring us the mass murderers such as Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan and suicide-bombers who detonate their explosive vests in crowded marketplaces and even mosques are individual anomalies and Islam is not responsible for what they do.

On the other side are those fed up with the innumerable daily horrific acts throughout the world that are clearly committed under the banner of Islam. In all fairness, there needs to be a distinction. Numerous criminal acts are also committed on a daily basis by non-Muslims. The critical difference is that non-Muslim criminals do not hoist a religious banner to justify their misdeeds, while the Muslims proudly claim that they commit their heinous acts in obedience to the dictates of their religious faith.

Howard makes a good point here. DHS was supposed to save money. I still can’t figure out how politicians can say that creating a huge bureaucracy can save money, and also do it with a straight face. This is a prime example.

If health care passes, we the people are screwed. There are over 100 new bureaucracies created with that mess, but I digress.

The Fort Hood tragedy could have been prevented. It could have been prevented by several agencies that are sworn to do just that, prevent home grown terrorism. Even the Army had a shot at preventing this one, several times by the looks of things. I am absolutely positive that it was all DIVERSITY related.

Fort Hood: Who’s responsible?
By Howard Nemerov

In Old Media’s rush to find an explanation for the Fort Hood tragedy, nobody has asked the most important question: Did the government fail to protect us?

Brief history lesson

After the 9/11 terrorist attack, then-President Bush proposed a new federal agency to coordinate and oversee investigation and prevention of domestic terrorism:

The changing nature of the threats facing America requires a new government structure to protect against invisible enemies that can strike with a wide variety of weapons. Today no one single government agency has homeland security as its primary mission. In fact, responsibilities for homeland security are dispersed among more than 100 different government organizations. America needs a single, unified homeland security structure that will improve protection against today’s threats and be flexible enough to help meet the unknown threats of the future.
