"Pope Rebukes Priests Who Advocate Ordaining Women and Ending Celibacy,"

Benedict, who at almost 85 has been ...  in fighting form as a defender of orthodoxy, favoring a smaller church of more ardent believers over a larger community that relies on what he sees as diluted doctrine.

That translates-- excommunicating the Pelosis, Mikulskis, and Kennedy ilks who use faith only as a political convenience.  Sort of like Hollywood Jews.  A parallel to this is the conservative movement's effort to rid the GOP of its RINO leadership.  Say Amen.

The Livermore Light Bulb

Res Ipsa Loquitur

The world's oldest light bulb has been burning for 111 years - so little wonder it has a fan club with thousands of members and its own website. The so-called 'Centennial Light' has been on almost constantly since 1901. It holds pride of place in Fire Station 6, in Livermore, northern California.

The longest time the Guinness World Record-holding bulb has ever been turned off for is just a week. Dangling above the fire engines, people come for hundreds and thousands of miles to see the diminutive symbol. The bulb was designed by Adolphe Chailet, who competed with the likes of the world-famous Thomas Edison to make the best bulb. [site]

I saw this on ACE a few weeks ago,  and it lit a light bulb.  And then, another one.

I have mentioned before that when I was a lad in Chicago you took your burned out light bulbs to Commonwealth Edison and got  free replacements. Years later I asked my dad about that during a reminiscence.  His explanation—  and he was never wrong about anything in his entire life, was that Com Edison's bulbs were made with extra heavy filaments, which served two purposes.  They seldom burned out, and they used twice as much electricity as bulbs we use today.  And  Com Edison was selling the juice. The free Gillette razor, you buy the blades gambit.  Looking up that reference led me to The Light Bulb Conspiracy – The Untold Story of Planned Obsolescence, which I haven't read, nor watched, but it looks like that other bulb I mentioned.

Coulter vs. Malkin: Female conservatives clash over Palin
While I've  noticed some leftward drift from Ann Coulter, I will for now side with the argument that Michelle Malkin (whom I also love) is making a bit much her statement "that the eventual Republican candidate shouldn’t pick “a novelty candidate” as their vice presidential nominee because it “would ring too much like Sarah Palin.”  In fact, and without knowing about this kerfluffle, I had exactly the same thought when I saw that Romney had South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley on his "short list."  It would be exactly what some (ahem) would expect from Romney,  whose campaign ideology seems to be one of meeting perceived  expectations of a group he really doesn't understand.  Conservatives. The answer, Mitt, is John R. Bolton.

A.K.A. Obama Boulevard

The most interesting recent political phenomenon, after the Teaparty, was the emergence of the PUMA (Party Unity My Ass) movement in 2008.  These were hard (HARD) core Hillary supporters; stunned by what they (accurately) believed was the Democrat Party's betrayal of their goddess Hillary.  When the SIEU pulled off a massive voter fraud to give Obama a critical western primary win in Nevada, they flipped.

From my vantage point, everything they railed about were the very things we put up with the Clinton's Democrat Party.  Illegal fundraising; vote fraud; baldfaced lies, etc.  Still, I welcomed them, their fervor, and their knowledge of how the left operates.  I believed there were enough of them to deny Obama's election in November, alas.

My favorite of the PUMA blogger was Texas Darlin' (TD Blog).  When she and her blog archives disappeared after the election, I entertained the thought  that her efforts against Obama had allowed her to also see how filthy the Democrat Party, and by extension the Clintons, had always been, which epiphany caused her to commit ritual Seppukblog.  Too bad.  She was sharp as a tack.

So I wrote on Tuesday,  November 02, 2010.  When I say disappeared, I mean bulldozer-leveled. Her archives, containing some of the best insights, documents and sleuthing went up in smoke. Not even  Google cache could produce an archived word.  Very strange.  Here today, erased from history in a heartbeat.  That light bulb lit last night when I read this:

.Michele Thomas, a professional photographer in Hollywood, told WND in an exclusive interview that her resistance to the Obama campaign made her a target of intimidation.

“I have received death threats from Obama’s people,” she said. “I think I was called a ‘racist’ a thousand times. If you didn’t stand for Obama, you were a racist. It was a way to intimidate you.”

Thomas’ charges were affirmed by a Hollywood producer who spoke to WND, Bettina Viviano, who claims that it was a common belief inside Hillary Clinton’s campaign that Obama was not eligible to be president and that she heard Bill Clinton say it in a telephone conference call.


What she witnessed while volunteering for Hillary in the Nevada Democratic Party caucuses eventually turned her into an activist.

“The Obama campaign people were stealing the caucuses – throwing away votes, intimidating people from entering the caucus locations,” she said. “It was very systematic. The Obama supporters got control over the caucus packages and they manipulated the vote.”

She said she was astounded that the media was not interested in covering the alleged abuses.

“Everyone knew the Obama people were stealing the election,” she charged.  .... [Horror stories]

Now, I have more than once had my own finger on a Kevorkian style Blogicide button, so that could explain TD's action.  Just fed up with the whole deal.  She did, evidently, make a brief reappearance, so I don't make too much of it, at least in the context of Obamunist thuggery charges.  We know with certainty that threats and intimidation are his style. We knew at the time that SEIU engineered his crucial Nevada primary win over Hillary in 2008.  We know that SEIU have emerged as his "Brown Shirts."

(Pop-up thought - Hitler had his ancestral home leveled after taking power.  Destroying all traces of his ancestry)

Imagine for a minute that your phone rang, and you were threatened ... your family threatened?  That's how easy it is to silence a nation when nobody dares, or wants to put a stop to it. 

Disclaimer:  I believe Obama is a very bad man.  I think he's worse than Hitler,  who at least loved the country  he ruled over.
