Fahrenheit 1861

What if Ken Burns produced
a Michael Moore movie?

 I've been going through my old program backups, and found lots of interesting stuff.  Bookmarks from 2003-2004 were particularly interesting, like a link to this video that I'd all but forgotten forgotten.  Fahrenheit 1861 - part 1 (there is no part2 )

Birther Primer 101

Know Your Birther Put-Downs
 It's okay to be an anti-birther.  But why not be (the only) one who has the facts straight?


Chapter One: How Stuff Works in Hawaii.

This could have been you
  1. In 1961 you were born in Teaneck New Jersey
  2. Your aunt, who lived in Hawaii, thought it would be nice if you could attend her alma mater, the University of Hawaii at reduced rates. 
  3. So, Aunt Bess trucks down to city hall and fills out a form declaring your Hawaiian birth. 
  4. A certification of  live birth is duly issued.
  5. Birth data is retrieved pro forma by Hawaiian newspapers.
  6. A birth notice appears in the local papers.
 That's an actual scenario based on Hawaiian law.  Hell , the ( born in China)  Father of Modern China,  Dr. Sun Yat-Sen,  did same thing when having a Hawaiian birth was advantageous.  And while this  is not proof that Obama benefited from the same process, it does demonstrate that a  Certification of  Live Birth, with its attendant announcement in a Hawaiian newspaper,  is not the magic enema Obamunists claim.  Quiz tomorrow.

People who steal from babies

U.S. troop funds diverted to pet projects
Study finds $2.6 billion taken from guns and ammunition



  Senators diverted $2.6 billion in funds in a defense spending bill to pet projects largely at the expense of accounts that pay for fuel, ammunition and training for U.S. troops, including those fighting wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, according to an analysis.

Among the 778 such projects, known as earmarks, packed into the bill: $25 million for a new World War II museum at the University of New Orleans and $20 million to launch an educational institute named after the late Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, Massachusetts Democrat.
More of the "Screw what voters want, we're special" mentality from the House of Lords.  If this government was a Frank Capra movie,  the audience would be screaming for blood and throwing Milk Duds at the screen.  Bullets would be the better choice with this bunch. .45 calibur.

So many targets ...

In passing
 They're so many, and moving so fast we can't get a good shot.

Rev. Al Sharpton  threatens to sue Rush Limbaugh over Wall Street Journal op-ed
A little late to be looking for respect Al.  Hell, Rush left out race hustler and extortionist.

Thatcher adviser: Copenhagen goal is 1-world government
"At [the 2009 United Nations Climate Change Conference in] Copenhagen this December, weeks away, a treaty will be signed.  Your president will sign it."  Silliness aside, these people are serious. 

George Soros to invest $1 billion in green tech, will found and fund a climate policy initiative

Soros, defacto head of the Democrat Party, sees real green (soon pastel
Euro trash
, if he can help it) in Climate law.

Dems Go Nuclear
So all those "town hells" during the summer, where senators and congressmen were given an earful about passing secretly written thousand-page bills without reading them, will be ignored.

Child porn fears scupper airport ‘nude X-ray’ scans
Airport  security chiefs have been banned from subjecting children to a controversial new X-ray scanner that produces ‘ naked
Ha Ha
’ pictures of passengers because of legal warnings the images may break child pornography laws.
Yes, the entire world is now officially insane. 

Not only is this cool, but the babes are hot! The original.

The Kenyan Wetback

Birth of the Birthers?

 

Kenyan-born US Senate hopeful, Barrack Obama, appeared set to take over the Illinois Senate seat after his main rival, Jack Ryan, dropped out of the race on Friday night amid a furor over lurid sex club allegations.

The allegations that horrified fellow Republicans and caused his once-promising candidacy to implode in four short days have given Obama a clear lead as Republicans struggled to fetch an alternative.

Ryan’s campaign began to crumble on Monday following the release of embarrassing records from his divorce. In the records, his ex-wife, Boston Public actress Jeri Ryan, said her former husband took her to kinky sex clubs in Paris, New York and New Orleans. Cont

 I assume one will find several contemporaneous denunciations of this 2004 Associated Press allegation of Kenyan birth.  If not, wait a few days. One will be found in the New York Times archives.
