Baby On Board III



Yes moms, an easily bored public no longer pay attention to your Baby-On-Board reminder to drivers—  "Please Don't Plough Into Me; BABY IS ON BOARD"  sign.  As a result,  death and injury levels skyrocketed.   The poorly received  BOB II  did naught to lower vehicular manslaughter rates (except in Pierre, SD).  In fact, insurance companies report  BOB II may have resulted in some mothers being pummeled  by drivers angered by the perceived  insensitivity and brutality.  They shan't easily ignore BOB III; and there is no blood displayed to raise hackles.  

Design was overseen by Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius.   She wants to make them mandatory, with severe penalties for use by drivers with no actual baby on board.

The Silence of the Republican Candidates

The Taliban Are Really Pissed On!
Taliban Are Really Pissed On!

I was just poined to this Bill Kristol piece on the Taliban Pissers.  It exactly comports with my stated view, only luke-warmly supported.  Kristol once again becomes a great thinker, and patriot; this is the full article. /

The Silence of the Republican Candidates

Obama administration bigwigs are falling all over themselves to denounce, condemn, lament, and apologize for the unfortunate behavior of a few Marines in Afghanistan last year. Defense Secretary Leon E. Panetta condemned the action as not just deplorable but “utterly deplorable.” Secretary of State Hillary Clinton expressed not just dismay but “total dismay.”
The Silence of the Republican Candidates

Give me a break. More importantly, give our troops a break. Yes, the Marines who appear to have done what they did should be reprimanded or punished, as they would have been in the normal course of things once their deed came to light. I will even grant that some higher-ups might have felt it prudent to deplore what happened, based on realpolitik considerations of depriving our enemies of excuses to whip up sentiment against us in the region (though I’m doubtful the effort to do this isn’t more counterproductive than not). But the administration’s reaction is over the top. And it smells of cheap self-righteousness and moral posturing from an administration that, to be honest, hasn’t devoted a whole lot of time to thanking our troops for what they've been doing in very difficult and dangerous circumstances.

Maybe it was too much to expect senior officials to make the common sense points that 1) this incident is not something to get hysterical about, and 2) it needs to be put in the context of the admirable behavior of 99 percent of our troops 99 percent of the time. But aren't there Republicans around who might want to make this point? I gather, for example, that there are several people running for the Republican presidential nomination. Maybe one of them could say a good word about our troops?

If they need some reassurance as to where public opinion might be, they can take a look at the results of a poll on the website of, yes, the Washington Post. The question is, “What was your reaction to the video that appeared to show Marines urinating on three Afghan corpses?”

So far, with over 20,000 votes cast, here's how the responses break down:

It's an unacceptable desecration - 11 percent
It's an embarrassment - 7 percent
It's not surprising -- things like this happen in war - 82 percent

If only our political leaders were as sensible—and our Republican leaders as willing to express their opinion—as Washington Post readers!

Under an illusion ...


It's hard to figure Jimmy Carter out.  Does he think Clinton relieved him of his "Worst ex-President Ever" title?  Or, Obama the "The Worst President?"   Did losing an election drive him insane, as it did Al Gore?  Or, is he just an anti-semitic, American hating corksucker?  A man of many such qualities, our Jummy.  Since he's not dead yet, Jummy continues to burnish that legacy; even treading on Ted Kennedy ground

Former President Carter meets with Muslim Brotherhood in Cairo

The chairman of Egypt’s new Freedom and Justice Party — a/k/a the Muslim Brotherhood — met last week with former U.S. President Jimmy Carter. The stated purpose of the meeting was the ongoing Egyptian transition process and the recent elections. Carter congratulated FJP chairman Mohamed Morsi on the parliamentary election results achieved by the party, the political arm of the Muslim Brotherhood (MB), noting there was international consensus to respect the results which reflect the Egyptian people’s choices, said a statement posted on the Muslim Brotherhood’s web site. “The former U.S. president called on the FJP to accommodate nascent and new parties of youth which have not achieved significant rates of victory in recent elections,” the web site stated.

President Carter is known for his enthusiasm for Islamist groups that takeover Middle Eastern and North African nations. He’s also known to curry favor with Islamic radicals, neo-Marxists and other enemies of the U.S. and Israel.

In fact, Carter angered the Israeli government and people when he compared Israel with South Africa during that nation’s Apartheid policy. [etc]

Any great thriller has a great villain.  What makes it great is the audience's anticipation of the baddie's demise.  If we 'mericans were a novel or a movie,  these last 50 years would be the greatest thriller of all times.  I can't wait for the spectacular ending that is our due. Or, I want my money back.



This morning the Muslim Brotherhood warned that if the United States continued meddling in Egypt , Libya , and other  potential hot spots in the middle east, they intend to cut off America's supply of 7-11 and  Motel 6 managers.

If this action does not yield sufficient results, cab  drivers will be next, followed by Dell, AT&T and AOL customer service  reps.

Finally, if all else fails, they have threatened not to send us any more presidents either.

It's gonna get ugly people.


Mr. Smith Beats Crap Out Of Obama

  • 12-year-old ChristianU2uber, whose video arguing same-sex marriage is morally wrong resulted in a stream of responses that called him a “fag in denial” and suggested he “kill Christianity, and then kill yourself.” The response was so vicious, WND reported, that Internet crime specialists in Texas tracked down the boy and his family and persuaded ChristianU2uber to remove the videos and receive counseling.

The Secrets of Tebow Hatred
It's easy to see why legions of loyalists lavish love on 24-year-old Tim Tebow, who leads his underdog Denver Broncos in a crucial playoff game against the New England Patriots on Saturday night. Yet other fiercely focused fans feel no hesitation at expressing their contempt and loathing for a remarkable athlete whose behavior on field and off exemplifies the values of hard work, fearlessness and concern for the downtrodden.

A popular website called serves as a clearinghouse for denunciations, while Jeff Darlington of got a big response for a survey on what offended fans most about the Broncos quarterback. An Orlando, Fla., radio station (WJRR) used crude language promoting a public campaign to terminate Mr. Tebow's well-advertised virginity and to break his pledge to save himself for marriage. Bill Maher, acerbic tribune of "Real Time" on HBO, got into the holiday spirit last month by celebrating a Denver loss and tweeting: "Wow. Jesus just f---- #TimTebow bad! And on Xmas Eve!" Novelist and blogger Drew Magary proudly declares on the sports website "Not only is it OK to root against Tim Tebow, it's practically your duty as cynical Americans."

It is a cultural thing,  For me the acid test in these matters is—  if  Frank Capra were to make a movie about any of these three people, who would be the villain? The hero?  Which culture would moviegoers want to live in?  Tebow's, or one where the President of the United States gives a thumbs-up to an army of filthy, disease carrying anarchists?  KISS.

A Bad Thing?

Congress logs most futile legislative year on record
Outlook for House, Senate also shows scant accomplishment for ‘12 session



This is a bad thing?  Congress does nothing?  I'd llike to have seen that headline every year since 1960— when Peeping Tom, Victim, and  Viridiana exampled what outraged the culture.
