Obama Approval Index at Minus 2; Voters Watch him enjoy ice cream while Irans citizens die for freedom; Way to Go Barack, voter eyes are opening

Dictator Silences the “VOICE” of One
thus strengthens
The VOICE
from beyond her Death

These are the final moments of Neda (Translated meaning is Voice) as she lies and dies on street in Tehran from bullets fired into her body from the Guns of Government Civilian Defense Force… and for what?

Because She asks… Where is My Vote?

It happened folks.. Obama’s exposed his lacking attitude concerning Iran Voters Dying in the streets asking a simple question and daring not to back down… Where Is My Vote? as the Iran Supreme leader orders Civilian Defense Force (Militia), Police, and the Army to attack them for protesting.

Obama first stated… I don’t want to Meddle… then when silent for days as the protests continued in the streets of Tehran… and finally, after both DEM majority houses of Congress voted in favor of supporting the Iranian People in their sacrifice of life and security for something all people deserve… freedom from oppression of a Government which thinks it is more important than citizens…

…Then THEN Obama presented himself before the eyes of the world and showed an unbelievable lack of empathy for the Iranian Citizens dying at the hands of an Oppressive Government over the Election Fraud perpetrated on them…

…by enjoying a Media photo opportunity licking the sweetness of an ice cream cone.

Obama goes for photo op to eat ice cream while Iran kills people asking "Where is my Vote?" Obama Approval Rating Index a Rassmusen goes negitive for first time

Obama goes for photo op to eat ice cream while Iran kills people asking "Where is my Vote?" Obama Approval Rating Index at Rassmusen Poll goes negative for first time

I AM SPEECHLESS…
as I cry for the People of Iran
who were being murdered
as he enjoyed his ice cream.

Both Joe Biden and Hillary Clinton sided with the Iran Protesters… and finally FINALLY The Enchanted One issued a statement, not to the IRAN PROTESTERS BUT TO THE DICTATORS… reeking of offering advice as to how to keep their grip on their power.

Take at look at Rasmussen Reports daily Obama Job Approval Index… it now has reached an all time low and for the first time it is NEGATIVE… a minus 2, which means…

More people now disapprove of Obama than approve

Obama responds with
Self-Image Damage Control
too little; too late

This is real folks… Obama, in spite of his Star Appeal and the unquestioned backing of the Massive Liberal Media,is showing the Real Obama and People are not Liking it.

See for yourself… this is historic and marks the end of the love affair:

    comment from Hot Air blog:

    I saw this part of a video covering the riots and watched her eyes open and look directly into the camera before passing, I said this is the picture that will embody the entire Iranian crisis.

    I also remember talking to the Shaw of Iran, I was part of the military unit training the Shaw to fly, just before returning to Iran. He warned of the Mullah’s unwavering belief that Muslim ideology will rule the world and stay in the 7th century, because life was simpler and the people easier to control.

    All this while DHS Gestapo get RECORDED Thugging a Conservative boarding a Plane…

    And the ACLU just Took On the Obama Administration for their Gestapo Behavior in this matter and filed suit against Janet Napoleon-Ano.

    Passenger says TSA agents harassed him

    WASHINGTON (CNN) — Steve Bierfeldt says the Transportation Security Administration pulled him aside for extra questioning in March. He was carrying a pocket edition of the U.S. Constitution and an iPhone capable of making audio recordings. And he used them.

    On a recording a TSA agent can be heard berating Bierfeldt. One sample: “You want to play smartass, and I’m not going to play your f**king game.”

    Bierfeldt is director of development for the Campaign for Liberty, an outgrowth of the Ron Paul presidential campaign. He was returning from a regional conference March 29 when TSA screeners at Lambert-St. Louis (Illinois) International Airport saw a metal cash box in his carry-on bag. Inside was more than $4,700 dollars in cash — proceeds from the sale of political merchandise like T-shirts and books.

    There are no restrictions on carrying large sums of cash on flights within the United States, but the TSA allegedly took Bierfeldt to a windowless room and, along with other law enforcement agencies, questioned him for almost half an hour about the money.

    The American Civil Liberties Union has taken up Bierfeldt’s cause and is suing Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano, whose department includes the TSA. Their complaint alleges that Bierfeldt was “subjected to harassing interrogation, and unlawfully detained.”

    Larry Schwartztol of the ACLU said the TSA is suffering from mission creep.

    “We think what happened to Mr. Bierfeldt is a reflection that TSA believes passenger screening is an opportunity to engage in freewheeling law enforcement investigations that have no link to flight safety,” he said.

    Schwartztol believes many other passengers have been subjected to the same kind of treatment, which he claims violates constitutional protections against unlawful searches.

    The TSA wouldn’t comment on the lawsuit, but said in a statement that the movement of large amounts of cash through a checkpoint may be investigated “if suspicious activity is suspected.”

    Unbeknownst to the TSA agents, Bierfieldt had activated the record application on his phone and slipped it into his pocket. It captured the entire conversation.

    An excerpt:

    Officer: Why do you have this money? That’s the question, that’s the major question.

    Bierfeldt: Yes, sir, and I’m asking whether I’m legally required to answer that question.

    Officer: Answer that question first, why do you have this money.

    Bierfeldt: Am I legally required to answer that question?

    Officer: So you refuse to answer that question?

    Bierfeldt: No, sir, I am not refusing.

    Officer: Well, you’re not answering.

    Bierfeldt: I’m simply asking my rights under the law.

    The officers can be heard saying they will involve the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Drug Enforcement Administration, and appear to threaten arrest, saying they are going to transport Bierfeldt to the local police station, in handcuffs if necessary.

    Bierfeldt told CNN he believes their behavior was inappropriate.

    “You’re in a locked room with no windows. You’ve got TSA agent. You’ve got police officers with loaded guns. They’re in your face. A few of them were swearing at me.”

    But the officers did not follow through on their threats. Near the end of the recording an additional officer enters the situation and realizes the origins of the money.

    Officer: So these are campaign contributions for Ron Paul?

    Bierfeldt: Yes, sir.

    Officer: You’re free to go.

    According to the TSA, “Passengers are required to cooperate with the screening process. Cooperation may involve answering questions about their property. A passenger who refuses to answer questions may be referred to appropriate authorities for further inquiry”

    Bierfeldt contends he never refused to answer a question, he only sought to clarify his constitutional rights.

    “I asked them, ‘Am I required by law to tell you what you’re asking me? Am I required to tell you where I am working? Am I required to tell you how I got the cash? Nothing I’ve done is suspicious. I’m not breaking any laws. I just want to go to my flight. Please advise me as to my rights.’ And they didn’t.”

    The TSA says disciplinary action has been taken against one of its employees for inappropriate tone and language.

  12. rosehips says:

    rose overboard. i’m wounded and only hope I will make it to shore. ouch.

    vf said: Rose… it does not matter what you think…

  13. samhenry says:

    Much as I adore you friend Rosie, I am more concerned with the Persian People. They are not only at risk from their government but from the nuclear materials within their boarders. With all of the “unidentified” military personnel from outside of Iran actively taking a role in putting the opposition in jail or worse, we need to worry that some of them are busy stealing from the nuclear stockpile to further their own agendas. Notice no word about nuclear materials in this one. With proliferation, every unstable country presents this terror both for their citizens and the world.

  14. rosehips says:

    vf, so if you are not with the majority, your views don’t matter?
    ROTFL

  15. rosehips says:

    sh, throw me a lifeline. I don’t think I’m gonna make it to shore. lol

  16. samhenry says:

    Rosie – you’ll swim back after heartbreak. I did. I’m a resilient type who can’t stand to stay silent on matters of meaning. Neither are you. VF would want you to keep debating but remember VF’s debating tactics stated yesterday:

    Try to prove the debate opponent correct and go find proof to support the opponents point of view.
    The ability to switch positions in order to look at both sides of an issue with a minimum of bias strengthens one’s ability to debate.
    Doing this provides clarity of sight…

    Rose – it is a lot like the old saw: Know thine enemy. This is a time-tested tactic and not one that insists on capitulation from your viewpoint only a strengthening of it if it has merit from consideration of both sides.

  17. rosehips says:

    sh, I just think we need to proceed with caution. I don’t really know what we should do. I think we are more at risk with NK than Iran right now. I don’t think our involvement will help. We do need to show the people of Iran that we care what happens to them. We cannot rescue every country from it’s dictators though. Next we’ll be wanting to invade Venezuela and god knows where else.

    I”m treading water here. where’s that line?

  18. samhenry says:

    Rose here’s the lifeline – caaaaaatch. You are needed here.

  19. m2 says:

    I’m pretty sure if anyone other than Obama were in office, we wouldn’t be in many of these situations with dictators. NK would not be firing off missiles if Obama had shown strength.

    Not sure if Iran would be killing their people if Obama weren’t in office.

    I think VF just mean the poll shows ppl have a diff. view of Obama’s “leadership” than you rosehips, not that she was saying you’re opinion doesn’t matter.

  20. rosehips says:

    sh, we are not debating facts here. I simply stated that I think Obama is correct to be cautious about interfering in Iran’s elections.

    Al Gore won the Presidency in 2000 and the Supreme Court sided with the Republican Party. It was a travesty. How would we have liked it if Iran decided to tell us what to do? HAHAHA

    just imagine what the blogosphere would look like if that happened?

  21. m2 says:

    Thank God Al Gore didn’t win.

  22. samhenry says:

    Rose – the lifeline then the life’s lecture from the old and venerable dawg: N Korea is not in turmoil. We know where the rockets are and will no doubt be able to shoot them down. If not, back to what’s left of the drawing board.

    But the location and security of nuclear materials in Iran and in Pakistan are dark, unknown entities. We need to get on the ground in some way. I warned a couple of months ago in a video of the import of talking with the Iranians:

    http://www.ireport.com/docs/DOC-241371

  23. rosehips says:

    thanks and hi m2

    I don’t agree that our relations with other countries are worse because Obama is not being hawkish enough. But I understand your pov and I doubt we will agree.

    and I’m sure you are right about vf not meaning it as a personal attack on the worthiness of my thoughts. I hope to hear it from her though. Then I will feel like I am not totally wasting my time here.

  24. VotingFemale says:

    While we are all free to voice our opinions… which is important… what really matters is the collective opinion of the majority…

    didn’t intend to offend, Rose…

    That Obama’s Approval Rating is now less than his disapproval rating should be a wake up call to his supporters…

    The man is a problem

  25. rosehips says:

    ty vf. my pity party is coming to an end. Last call!

  26. rosehips says:

    m2, but he did win. the election was stolen from him…

    m2 said: Thank God Al Gore didn’t win.

  27. samhenry says:

    VF – give Rosie a hug – can you?

  28. samhenry says:

    Morning M2 – I left a message for you at the end of yesterday’s blog.

  29. samhenry says:

    OOOOOOOOuch – that Cat’s got my tongue, drat it!

  30. m2 says:

    I don’t think Obama is handling Iran very improperly, however- he has handed virtually every foreign diplomatic situation up till now VERY BAD. Which has emboldened Chavez, Kim Jon Il, and Iran Achmadenijad.

    That’s why I wonder if they would get violent if a stronger president who had moral convictions were in office?

    As to this situation, specifically. I think he waited to long to comment and was purposefully generic (was it Thursday that he commented first?) I agree he can’t come out with condemnation in order to preserve the headway the revolutionaries are making, and keep the clerics from blaming us.

    Yes, that I understand.

    However, yesterday (today) they blamed America anyway.

    The Iranians are writing their signs in ENGLISH WHY?

    and for him to get ice cream on Saturday shows a very poor judge of character.

    Had that been Bush… ???? Yeah…. you know what.

  31. VotingFemale says:

    {{{{{{{Hugs to Rosie O’Hips!!!!}}}}}}}

  32. m2 says:

    and what I mean is, Bush wouldn’t even be seen doing that. Because he wouldn’t. But if he did, that would have been publicized for 7 years afterward.

  33. samhenry says:

    _og -ver_ord – _ongue _urts

  34. rosehips says:

    sh, that was a good video you made and I agree with you, we shouldn’t dismiss the value of dialogue with Iran. We really don’t know what the election outcome would be if they were conducted legitimately.
    One thing everyone who is supporting the protesters might not agree with them on. I believe the people of Iran feel strongly that they should be entitled to nuclear power. They feel Americans are oppressors for our attitude that it’s ok for us to have them because our gov’t can be trusted (despite the fact we are the only country who has used them) but they can’t have nukes because they can’t be trusted. Ok, they are not stable enough and I don’t want nukes anywhere. But why should we be entitled? Who declared us worthy?

  35. samhenry says:

    M2 the Bush family took many meals in via takeout – both Bushes. I used to eat at their favorite Chinese resaturant – The Peking Duck – (can’t remember location). They had takeout from there all of the time. I once hosted a small reunion party there with a centerpiece of two plastic pink lawn flamingos nesting – the female wearing Barbara Bush pearls. Backgrounder unimportant.

  36. rosehips says:

    {{{{{hugs back at you VF!}}}}}}

  37. m2 says:

    Saturday was a day of bloodshed and very horrible day for this planet when pundits, news anchors and congress reps were discussing how to “respond” and Obama gets photographed getting ice cream.

    Very poor taste, and sadly- for Iranians, poor symbolism.

  38. Foxwood says:

    “Al Gore won the Presidency in 2000 and the Supreme Court sided with the Republican Party.”

    And the Supreme Court is wrong if it sides with the Constitution, which I believe is it’s job.

    We would be in a world of hurt with a President Al.

  39. samhenry says:

    Rose – that argument (morality of having the bomb) persisted behind the scenes throughout its development. Teller (the primary scientest?) fought against its development. He saw the consequences very clearly. In the end, the argument that it was either we or them prevailed. There was credible intelligence that other nations were working on similar technology. Remember, we gave Werner Von Braun, Hitler’s top rocket scientist, a home here. HE brought us to the top niche in this technology of delivery and space exploration.

    Why we have the bomb and if it is right is no longer on the table. How to deal with what is on the table needs to be the focus. Right now why we should be the only ones to have radio active materials and delivery systems is really immaterial. Morally and practically, we need to be among those to stop proliferation. That is our role for letting the genie on the bottle in the first place. Who should know better the terrible power and consequences – after the Japanese. Perhaps a look at the fact that our nuclear power should be used to stop proliferation is in the end a good thing – with the current government here. Let’s not go down the road to our falling apart – that is also not on the table. I am ADD but in this I keep my eye on the prize.

  40. rosehips says:

    m2, I think Bush did it too. There is always sorrow and hardship going on in the world. I don’t begrudge Obama eating ice cream or my community continuing with plans for their parade, even while Iranians protested in the streets of Tehran. We can’t stop enjoying life when others in the world are struggling. But I hear what you are saying.
    I think Bush went golfing during Katrina, or something like that, but you see…I don’t even remember the specifics.

    I was appalled when my company had Vietnamese pedicurists come to our call center to paint the toenails of our call center agents during Katrina. People were literally on their roofs for 5 days straight in New Orleans and my co-workers were getting their toenails prettified. And the fact that it was vietnamese who sit on the floor and inhale toxic fumes for the beautification of toes just struck me as somehow demeaning. I wish I was an ireporter back then. It might have made compelling footage.
    Like I said, it appalled me and I can see how the Obama ice cream pic could be seen the same way.

  41. Foxwood says:

    The problem with the bomb was, if we didn’t develop it, USSR was going to.

    Mmmmmm…. I forgot, socialist nations are our friends and don’t dominate their people or other nations. (sarcasm)

  42. Foxwood says:

    Seems golfing is a good way to think on a situation. Always helps me. I wonder if Bush did that?

  43. rosehips says:

    sorry, I think Bush was vacationing during Katrina. This is what he got panned for :

  44. samhenry says:

    Rose – dont’ feel too sorry for the Viet Namese who do pedicures and for the Koreans who have dry cleaners. They are very well off. They are aware of the consequences of the fumes. A wealthy owner of a couple of nail salons who is Viet Namese lives near me. He is a lovely person and he also knows how to make money. His wife works like a beaver and is one of those who bend over and inhale fumes. You know the reason, IMO, that the Koreans, Viet Namese, Chinese and Jewish faith populations in this country are successful? They help each other. We wasps go to church, confess sins and then tend to put stilettos to the kidneys of our fellows in the coffee hour afterward. I have been the victim of the most powerful among them at a time when women were first coming into their own. I used my wits and won, thank goodness. Dogs bite.

  45. Foxwood says:

    If I remember, the state is supposed to take care of it’s people. No one ever says anything about Florida, and I believe that year Florida was hit 4 times. Florida took care of it’s people. Not Bush’s job.

  46. VotingFemale says:

    You would think Obama would have learned a lesson from that…

    Bush got rightfully nailed for that…

    rosehips says

    sorry, I think Bush was vacationing during Katrina. This is what he got panned for :

  47. Foxwood says:

    Libs called Bush on this because they are Libs. Louisiana was a Dem state. Mississippi got hit with Katrina also. We don’t hear about that. Mississippi took care of itself.

  48. samhenry says:

    As you say, Rosie, life went on – admittedly he could not bring his agency head to heel. I was not a great lover of the Bush clan (Eisenhower, you bet). That said, the Prez was laughing and licking and did not, as I recall, put down the ice cream to talk with reporters. “You have to put down the duckie if you want to play the saxaphone….”

  49. Foxwood says:

    VF, It was not Bushs job. That was the job of the state. No one called him on Florida or Mississippi because they were Republican states.

  50. rosehips says:

    lol, sh…@ “putting stilettos to the kidneys of our fellows” I am rotfl.

    I agree that the Vietnamese are a very industrious culture and many other cultures beat us hands down as family-centered and tribal. Many of us lost those values when we left the old country and we should have learned the values of the natives of this land. We would be better off, imo.

    I think the Native Americans should have had input into the Constitution. I think it would be a better document if they had.

  51. m2 says:

    so what? I hear about Bush and Katrina even now. So we can’t take a crap on Obama for being insensitive. Bush was relying on State gov’t first responders as is proper. But you have no trouble bringing up his “katrina/golf”… so I think getting ice cream while people are screaming in English for America’s help as they are gunned down is a foolish move.

  52. rosehips says:

    Obama was out with his daughters and I don’t think the press was necessarily invited. Actually I don’t know if it was a photo op or if the press just descended.
    Too bad the girls can’t go out for ice cream on the day before Father’s Day with their dad without him being vilified. But that is the sacrifice they agreed to. He should have sent out for Breyer’s and had it delivered in a brown bag.

  53. samiam60 says:

    There was minimal looting in Texas. New Orleans was ransacked. Personal pride vs corruption, plain and simple.

  54. samiam60 says:

    Texas used its school buses to evacuate but in the Democrat state the buses were left to flood and people stranded. It is what happens when a state government and police force are corrupt. You know, like Obama.

  55. VotingFemale says:

    Rose, this is not about his daughters….

    The Office of the President itself is Greater than Obama or any other politician…

    If that is a problem for him and his family perhaps he should have thought twice about running for President.

    rosehips says

    I don’t care but I think you and I were more concerned than Obama.

    And that’s how I feel about him.

    And his 100k date nights.

  57. newsbird says:

    Hi VotingFemale! Hi everyone!
    Great report! Obama has now shown without a doubt that he is not the leader of the free world. He is a bystander – not meddling. Gibbs called this blood and violence “internal debate for Iranians”.
    British PM Brown, speaking for EU, spoke with authority. Why can’t Obama come up with at least some kind of “presidential” comments other than “meddle”? Obama is an embrassament.

    Senator McCain: “He should speak out that this is a corrupt, flawed sham of an election and that the Iranian people have been deprived of their rights.”

  58. rosehips says:

    m2, I am just being ornery. I agree it was in poor taste to get a vanilla custurd with fudge and toasted almonds in a cup with his daughters. I think he should have at least forgone the almonds. Perhaps pistachios instead, in honor of the protesters. heehehee

    Just like Obama snubbing Wounded Vets in a hospital in Germany to go shoot hoops at a gym.

    I, for one, will never forget it… regardless of the lame excuses Obama tried to make which were outright refuted by US Army Command.

    Iranian protestor pleads for U.S., world to intervene
    Posted: 09:45 AM ET
    American Morning – amFIX
    Filed under: Iran

    A picture obtained on June 21, 2009 shows Iranian riot police on a street of Tehran on June 20, 2009.
    An Iranian student protestor in Tehran made a passionate plea for help from the world community this morning in a phone call to CNN’s “American Morning.”

    For safety reasons, CNN can only identify the student by his first name, Mohammed. He’s been a part of the protests and a target of the violence there. Below is an edited transcript of the interview.

    John Roberts: What is the scene like on the streets? Are there more demonstrators out there on the streets? Or is it much quieter than it has been in recent days?

    Mohammed: Hello. Actually I participated in Saturday’s demonstrations in parts of Tehran. What I saw, I saw thousands of security officers that tried to break up the crowd. They used canisters and batons and water cannons against us. They attacked us. And we also in response attacked them. We attacked them by throwing stones. And we built trenches in the streets…

    Roberts: So there was quite a large confrontation going on there over the weekend. But can you tell us what the scene is like on the streets today?

    Mohammed: Today was a long day in Tehran. And yesterday there weren’t any organized rallies in Tehran. Because we take orders from our leader…Mr. Mir Hossein Moussavi. The connections, the communication is very difficult, more than even you can imagine in Tehran. But I myself haven’t received any orders from our leaders yet. But as soon as I get any order, I will participate in any demonstration that they tell us.

    Kiran Chetry: When you say receiving orders, tell us how the protests are organized. How are you guys called to go and where?

    Mohammed: Actually, I’m a regular person. I’m not behind the scenes. I cannot tell you exactly how these demonstrations are organized. But as I know, as people said, there is a council, a group of Iranian reformists who organize these demonstrations and they tell us in any way that they could and we just follow.

    Chetry: Do you get it on your cell phone, text messages, are you able to use the internet?

    Mohammed: Actually, they reduce the internet speed. We have severe problems with the messenger software and every software like messengers. This is arranged by making calls, messages, calls to his friends or her friends and try to gather as much to tell as he or she can.

    Roberts: Mohammed, we have been talking this morning about what the students are fighting for and whether the students are fighting for something different than the older more established political candidates like Moussavi. Are the students seeking regime change? Are they looking to bring down the Ayatollah and completely change the form of government there in Iran? Or are you looking for – as has been suggested – more civil rights, more freedoms within the context of the existing regime?

    Expert: Protestors want civil rights, not revolution
    Mohammed: Yes. Let me tell you something. For about three decades our nation has been humiliated and insulted by this regime. Now Iranians are united again one more time after 1979 Revolution. We are a peaceful nation. We don’t hate anybody. We want to be an active member of the international community. We don’t want to be isolated… We don’t deny the Holocaust. We do accept Israel’s rights. And actually, we want — we want severe reform on this structure. This structure is not going to be tolerated by the majority of Iranians. We need severe reform, as much as possible.

    Roberts: Interesting perspective this morning from Mohammed, a student demonstrator there in Tehran.

    Mohammed: Excuse me, sir. I have a message for the international community. Would you please let me tell it?

    Roberts: Yes, go ahead.

    Mohammed: Americans, European Union, international community, this government is not definitely — is definitely not elected by the majority of Iranians. So it’s illegal. Do not recognize it. Stop trading with them. Impose much more sanctions against them. My message…to the international community, especially I’m addressing President Obama directly – how can a government that doesn’t recognize its people’s rights and represses them brutally and mercilessly have nuclear activities? This government is a huge threat to global peace. Will a wise man give a sharp dagger to an insane person? We need your help international community. Don’t leave us alone.

    Chetry: Mohammed, what do you think the international community should do besides sanctions?

    Mohammed: Actually, this regime is really dependent on importing gasoline. More than 85% of Iran’s gasoline is imported from foreign countries. I think international communities must sanction exporting gasoline to Iran and that might shut down the government.

  85. karmahd says:

    Jumping in here half assed and not informed as to the prior discussions, but I strongly agree that Bomwow is not and has not handled the Iran issue at all and said so late last night on the last blog.

    A little macro economics here that is not getting a lot of press, Iran, China Russia and several other nations are teaming together to develop another standardized form of currency based on the stength of there economies, in short they are trying to replace the US as the economic leaders of policy in the world, and are doing so with the use of oil and repression of their people. HMMM now that does not sound too good to me, if you are wondering why oil prices are so high and the value of our dollar so low, this is one of the primary reasons. They base this move on the fact that the US cannot sustain its military spending and is burying itself in debt!! All true, all the direct effect of the current administrations policies, the scales have tipped drastically to the left, and the world scuzzz bags are taking advantage of first Bomwow, and his incessant spending sprees with are deflating the value of the dollar and increasing the value of the debt due to this deflation. So we are in a world of shit if this new alliance is pulled off, and will be sucking hind tit, based on the whims of this new power structure. OK I am going to eat my lunch…

  87. karmahd says:

    Forgot to mention, by not coming out strong against Iran, he is ALLOWING Iran and the other oil producers to have there way to the benefit primarily of the Muslim countries and at the demise of our economy. This to me is the travesty ROSE

  88. Foxwood says:

    Lefty MO, Blame the Republican. Louisiana’s response, Fire Blanco.

  89. Foxwood says:

    “Iran spent nearly twice as much on U.S. imports during President Barack Obama’s first months in office as it did during the same period in 2008, showing that despite trade penalties and tense relations, the two countries are still doing business.”

    Which is a good reason to boycott GE.

  90. Foxwood says:

    You had to live here Karma.

  91. Foxwood says:

    We call Ex Governor Blanco, Katrina Blanco.

  92. Foxwood says:

    Replaced her with a good Republican, Bobby Jindal.

  93. rosehips says:

    karma, Obama should not base his foreign policy decisions around the cost of oil, imo. Let the bastards raise the price. I think high oil is good for us. We need to conserve and develop better alternatives to fossil fuels.

    If an increase in oil creates the demise of our economy, that is our fault for not listening to people who have been protesting for YEARS to stop depending on foreign oil. It’s not Obama’s fault….

  94. rosehips says:

    I’d be willing to bet if Obama came out strong against the Iranian Gov’t the price of oil would rise as well. But I can’t prove that. just my opinion.

  95. karmahd says:

    OK Rose, it is more than about oil, and what you are missing is twofold, first, the lack of reaction from BOMWOW is a travesty to the people of Iran, second, the price of oil will rise in the US and the usage will not go down it will just kill our economy and place the US in a second tier economically, while shoring up repressive dictatorships, I guess that is what you want and feel is pragmatic??? Got to run, but LILLY PAD thinking (superficial) will not solve the problems of the world, if we want a utopia all have to participate toward that goal!!! To think otherwise is DENIAL

  96. Foxwood says:

    “If an increase in oil creates the demise of our economy, that is our fault for not listening to people who have been protesting for YEARS to stop depending on foreign oil. It’s not Obama’s faul”

    I believe it’s searchable what Senator Obama’s voting record was on drilling in the states. He didn’t want to.

  97. rosehips says:

    karma, I really don’t think you or anyone knows how the Iranians would have reacted differently if Obama had strongly criticized the gov’t. I think it is a bit patronizing for you to think you have it all figured out and I am just a frog sitting on a lily pad dreaming about a utopia. Could it at all be possible that by denouncing the Iranian gov’t that is currently in control Obama might piss them off and eliminate any chance for diplomatic solutions between our two countries? Why is the tough guy approach always heralded as the most effective. I don’t believe it is always the best way but go ahead and dismiss me as unpragmatic. I still love ya bro.

    What do i do if a child swallows a penny?
    Best Answer – Chosen by Asker
    if he or she is breathing ok then relax and it will find it’s way out on it’s own, the Doc will tell you that it’s a good idea to watch for it or if the child has any abdominal pain or intestinal pain (blockage) to watch for that too and go to Doc if that happens but otherwise, this happens all the time and usually fixes itself.

    I have to just jump in here with a comment about that UCLA lawsuit against TSA.

    The guy with the metal box with money knows full well:

    1) You don’t mess with TSA. They take their work to protect us seriously.
    2) When he took a tin box full of cash on board, that is a red flag. He could have been running drugs.
    3) Asking TSA if he had to respond under the law. I heard the gentleman had a copy of the Constitution in his pocket. He knows the answer – the 5th and I’m not talking liquor here.

    This whole thing is bogus and is not worth tying up the court system.

    Neda Soltan, Young Woman Hailed as Martyr in Iran, Becomes Face of Protests
    Monday, June 22, 2009

    A young woman named Neda Soltan is being embraced as a martyr in Iran after a video of her purported killing at a protest Saturday was posted widely to YouTube and Facebook.
    A young woman named Neda Soltan is being embraced as a martyr in Iran after a video of her purported killing at a protest Saturday was posted widely to YouTube and Facebook.
    Protesters in Iran are hailing 26-year-old Neda Soltan as a martyr after graphic videos of her apparent murder at a protest in Tehran hit the Internet. Iran experts say images of her bloody death have galvanized the country and that mourning for her — which has been banned by authorities — will bring deeper unrest.

  128. arlenearmy says:

    Yeah Fox

    **** My POV as a natural born American citizen (which O is not) & who now reiterates the case for the protection of our 2nd amendment rights of the US Constitution *******

    I believe O would take ill gotten taxes if he could. But there is a certain thing that is missing from a lot of blogs, that I’ve noticed for past few days:

    1. There’s hardly if any discussion of what will happen if they take our guns. Look at what’s happening in Iran (fighting back w/stones & Ayatollah has the guns). If the Iranians had guns (or at least an NRA) like we do, would Ayatollah had been so aggressive ?

    2. What’s going on Iran is an PRIME example stabbing us in the eyes, that this could happen to us if they take our guns.

    And again I say yeah, O would take our taxes illegally & anything else he desires, if he gets rid of the 2nd Amendment.

  129. samhenry says:

    For the very first time, Arlene, I have become a fan of the NRA. Thank you for injecting this point at this time. You are a very bright person you know. You are armed with a very sharp brain.

Happy to do it for you. These are just learn able skills. I ‘m off to a Rotary dinner. Kiss the chickens. bbl

    Samhenry
    I’ll pm you.

    You got me inspired to do more research now instead of relying on my own perception. Do you know that until you brought this up I did not know what PUMA was? I have seen VF use the acronym PUMA & assumed it meant feline.

    So I goggled it & learned that it is a group of Hillary supporters who did not want Obama to win the election. I did find this in wikipedia, though due to certain recent events I don’t know if I can trust wikipodia. I am not bashful in admitting what I do not know. Like my mother told me a log time ago: “there is no such thing as a stupid question”. So I should had asked somebody.

  135. karmahd says:

    Rose, I don’t nor prescribe to have it all figured out. But history does, Iran has been at odds with any non Muslin country since the overthrow in the 70’s, they do not react to nice, they are a feudal society, as are most of their neighbors, they understand one thing and that thing is POWER, you cannot negoiate with them in the current conditions. They are making every effort to become a nuclear power, to further shake there fist of power at the rest of the world, they hold massive oil reserves, and hold alliances with Russia, and China, what that means is with our current financial situation which is growing worse every day there power increases and they can dictate world affairs. Those world affairs do not have the word freedom in its transcript, they are a totalitarian dictatorship which rules by intimidation. They treat there women like rats, they do not care what we think and will do as they please and are based in a deeply religious dogma. So when you have a foe, and they are a foe you have to deal with them on there level, that is not diplomatic that is by a show of power of which is not the current course of action by the Bomwow regime. That is reality, go check your sources, LOL

    The Blog’s Iran Protest Tweet Reflector is now working. located upper right…

  137. VF said: “…..The Socialist Party can not Erase it… it happened. [IRAN-Neda]

    Just like Obama snubbing Wounded Vets in a hospital in Germany to go shoot hoops at a gym……”

    Don’t get me started…. about that goofball TRYING to run/ruin America.

    This whole situation in IRAN is just so so sad and indicative of how weakness (worldwide) invokes violence.

  138. ohiobelle says:

    Hello everybody. I’ve had a very busy day and now I have to start on dinner so unfortunately I can’t stick around.

    vf, great post! My heart goes out to the Iranians. If I understand correctly the elders have formed a human chain to protect the younger Iranians that are protesting? The Ayatollah must go in order to see reform. I hope they stand strong and fight for their freedom.

    I wish I could stay longer but I have to run. I’ll have more time tomorrow.

    and hi belle, warranton, et al…

    I am running off to a meeting. driving up the Columbia River on the second longest day of the year. It’s been rainy most of the day, but it looks like it might clear up. We were supposed to have this meeting right on the river at a beautiful campground, but instead we must go to a microbrew up on the Canadian border. boo hoo.

    I am fit to be tied. I thought a flight anywhere in the world cost me 25,000 worldpoints and they jacked the cost up to 48,000! grrrrr… I only have 40,000 so I can’t even get myself a free ticket. I had to tell Jonah he can’t go to my mom’s birthday party. The prices are just too high for flights right now. Damn OPEC anyhow. lol

  141. rosehips says:

    actually it was supposed to be 25,000 pts for anywhere in the US…well, that will teach me. Things change.

  142. samiam60 says:

    For the better part of 30 years I have been watching Iran on the news and the Death to America chants. I vividly remember our serve men’s bodies being dragged through the streets after Carters failed resque attempt of the 50 or so American hostages. As cold hearted as this may sound I have to ask, what has changed?

  143. Foxwood says:

    The posters and tweets are in English people. They are asking for our help, and O stands by, because 1) he’s got a soft heart for hard line Islam and b) he’s sending US citizens a message.

    These children (they are under 30) may have been indoctrinated, but don’t know what happened 30 years ago. They try to live as Americans do. They don’t agree with Sharea (sp) law.

    Replace Poland in this speech with Iran:

    Sometimes, I feel bad because I don’t provide links as proof. I don’t know how ya’ll keep up w/all those sources. I do envy you guys’ effort & time to do background research.

    Being soft lets our enemy know how soft we are. Ronald Reagan knew this.

  144. Foxwood says:

    Don’t know what happened, Here’s the speech.

    As I speak to you tonight, the fate of a proud and ancient nation hangs in the balance. For a thousand years, Christmas has been celebrated in Poland, a land of deep religious faith, but this Christmas brings little joy to the courageous Polish people. They have been betrayed by their own government.

    The men who rule them and their totalitarian allies fear the very freedom that the Polish people cherish. They have answered the stirrings of liberty with brute force, killings, mass arrests, and the setting up of concentration camps. Lech Walesa and other Solidarity leaders are imprisoned, their fate unknown. Factories, mines, universities, and homes have been assaulted.

    The target of this depression [repression] is the Solidarity Movement, but in attacking Solidarity its enemies attack an entire people. Ten million of Poland’s 36 million citizens are members of Solidarity. Taken together with their families, they account for the overwhelming majority of the Polish nation. By persecuting Solidarity the Polish Government wages war against its own people.

    I urge the Polish Government and its allies to consider the consequences of their actions. How can they possibly justify using naked force to crush a people who ask for nothing more than the right to lead their own lives in freedom and dignity? Brute force may intimidate, but it cannot form the basis of an enduring society, and the ailing Polish economy cannot be rebuilt with terror tactics.

  145. Foxwood says:

    “Sometimes, I feel bad because I don’t provide links as proof. I don’t know how ya’ll keep up w/all those sources. I do envy you guys’ effort & time to do background research.”

    Links and URLs are about useless. I rarely use them.

    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    FOX – I cannot believe you have research envy. Pull up your socks, man. Stand by your beliefs. You don’t believe in references and citations. That is the way of the FOX. I for one accept that. Don’t bat your head a brick wall. Your blog brothers and sisters like you just the way you are – even when you mumble in the comment box. No one does asides better than you do FOX.

  148. samhenry says:

    Hey WG – sad times. Young people sacrificing and old people standing between the young people and the military. Courage we have rarely seen in these times. The Persian people will prevail. I join you and FOX in your belief about all of this.

  149. samhenry says:

    OK – Arlene – Fox was copying y our words about research. I don’t want you to have research envy either! If you don’t want to provide urls, etc. don’t. You are your own person. Why change?

    Fox – Arlene’s words are like yours. What I said above still stands.

    Both of you stop demeaning your brain power by worrying needlessly about citations and research. A lot of people can cut and paste urls. Not everyone can think clearly or with originality. Be grateful you are as you are.

  150. karmahd says:

    What is the difference between “Passion” and research, usually passion is true! If not to others it is true to you, speak from the heart and never fear, start quoting and you are sheep. I see no sheep on this blog, write ON!!! Hey that could be a new Tee Shirt “WRITE ON” Karma like…

  151. karmahd says:

    I have a very diverse background Samhenry, I look at all sides to plan my action, it was via a bing.com search on Obama and arab oil and that came up third or fourth!!

    I just realized I almost made a poem!!

    Thats better LOL

    Jim

  157. samhenry says:

    Now comes Karm trying to be a bad poet to make Fox feel better that he doesn’t like to do a lot of research.

    Now do I HAVE to put a positive spin on puerile poetry? You probably ARE a good closet poet but a guy’s guy can’t be seen to rhyme and shine. Oh no. You don’t own a velvet smoking jacket; your home does not have a paneled library with books stuffed onto every shelf and you don’t sip Spanish sherry and nibble upon madeleines. Yet, there are times when you are sitting in the warm waters of Tampa Bay looking out to sea thinking – “gee, this is worth a poem. I must write it down and run it past SamHenry.” It’s our secret. Tweet the darn thing to me KHD.

  158. karmahd says:

    That has to be a record for a run on sentence!!! I am so proud!
    Samhenry good idea on the poetry, but I do have a library full of books and I used to sip cognac, and a wee bit of sherry LOL

  159. karmahd says:

    OK back on point: Source, MR. Gray Matter

    The prom is over for Bomwow, now it is time to pay the piper, he can no longer claim the recent instability on Bush, that my friends is his doing, and what you have is all the slime of the earth testing him, hell we have missiles flying to Hawaii, Iran in turmoil, a withdraw from Iraq, Afghanistan is now on the front burner, stimulus money going for god knows what, reorganization of the finance system, we now own two car manufactures, the labor unions are getting paid off, an increase in Acorn, massive deficit spending, looming critical inflation, third world countries developing there own alliances to further bury us in debt, gas prices going through the roof when there is a massive supply, and did I tell you the world is going to end in 2012??? So Mr Prez Bomwow, how dat ice cream???

  160. karmahd says:

    how did that happen?? My back on point from Mr Gray matter was before the run on sentence, RUT RO the feds are on to us Samhenry, they read my poetry and now I am going to be under indictment for poor grammar!!

  161. karmahd says:

    OK I will be slightly politically correct for just a moment, I meant to type how is that ice cream, a Freudian finger fumble…

  162. samhenry says:

    KHD – we are both under the bus – face it. I am so glad you found that article on the BRIC meeting. I could not remember where that little despot Armad…?? went. It’s lucky for him he’s out of the country.

    If we had not gone into Iraq we would have been OK. Down the tubes; just like Rome. Damn shame.

    I am terribly upset about Iran but you know – it could so easily happen here and why – because there is an unknown quantity in the White House and no matter what flavor ice cream he eats, it’s the wrong flavor. By the way, he could have ditched the press. He thought that another family photo op would do it for him. He has no sense of timing and circumstance. I worry about US us – I worry and I’m angry. We’ve been fleeced, ripped off and robbed blind.

  163. samhenry says:

    Karm – bed beckons. First I have to kick two dogs out of it. I have an early morning appt. with an allergist. I can’t find the form of many pages his office sent for completion; I cannot find the directions to the office they provided AND HIS last name is Looney. This is insane so I’ll sign off my sinuses for the night and notify you about the nose tomorrow.

  164. karmahd says:

    Samhenry we are older and wiser, and the old saying goes, “what will be will be” There is not much we can do until the next election, and I do think that the general public will catch on, but this guy does have the media in his back pocket, so it will be a long 3.5 years. The damage is done, the course now is recovery, and that will only happen if someone comes up to bat that is a statesman, not another flash in the pan politician of which we are up to our gills with. I have hope, it is beyond my personal control, I know I can survive pretty much anywhere in the world if need be, I will just have to leave my toys behind. The clock on my days will be up before I know it, 20-25 more of which I hope to have 15 fun filled ones left in the tank, this mess will be left to the children, which is a shame. So I say live now, damn the torpedoes, and grasp life by the short hairs ya just never know when it will end!! So don’t fret or worry your self to an early grave, enjoy the simplicity of life, this mess is for the dwellers of minutia, vote and be done with it…

  165. Hey SamHenry, et al, just getting back by…sleepy. I see you’ve already hit the mat ‘ol dog and I’m right behind you…

    Karma! BITE YOUR TONGUE! hahahaah

  168. karmahd says:

    But it does stimulate thought!! that is the passion I feel, I feel we are at the end of days of the old political system, and something anew will spawn from all this, the fire was first started by Bush now the anti Bush, Obama, the Ying and Yang are severely out of balance, but the pond always settles, now is that time to regain balance between the left and the right, and live the middle way. Time to end the craziness…

  169. Foxwood says:

    I’m up late tonight. I’m on call. ugh!

    Night all, the days will go quick and the fall fast, it will be fun to witness this on the front lines to change!!

    Disheartening news: The results of the election will stand:

    TEHRAN, Iran (CNN) — Iran’s Guardian Council has ruled out the possibility of nullifying the results of the country’s disputed presidential election, saying irregularities were reported before the balloting — not during or after.

    The announcement, reported by Iran’s government-funded Press TV on Tuesday, was another in a series of inconsistent stances by the council on how to handle the unrest stemming from the disputed June 12 race.

  181. Foxwood says:

    Obama’s reluctance to do anything has given way to continue tyranny. Without “HOPE” from our leader, the Iranian dream has died. A Reagan or Bush would have given hope inspiration to the Iranian people. Hope and inspiration give drive to a people.

    Obama is hoping he can quash hope and inspiration in the United States as well. His handling of Iran is what you can foresee happen to us as well. For you that are to blind to see or sleeping, nice dreams, have fun in Candyland.

    Sorry bout the vid. Gonna be one of those days I think.

  187. samhenry says:

    Agreed Fox but what about the fact that if we intervene, the situation will move from one of Iranian against Iranian to one of the Iranian Gov against the US? Further pundits say that it will mean that the troops will then not hesitate to shoot more of their countrymen?

    “Crime History: Bobbitt attack gains instant notoriety
    By: Scott McCabe
    Examiner Staff Writer
    06/22/09 9:36 PM EDT On this day, June 23, in 1993, Lorena Bobbitt cut off her husband’s penis, becoming instant fodder for late night comedians and sparking a national debate over marital rape.

    John Wayne Bobbitt came home to the couple’s Manassas apartment drunk and raped his wife, according to Lorena Bobbitt. Afterward, she went to the kitchen, grabbed a carving knife, went back to the bedroom where John was asleep and severed his penis.

    She ran to her car and drove off, tossing the penis out the car window into a field. She then called police. During an extensive search, authorities found the penis, packed it in ice and took it to the hospital.

    It was reattached during a nine-hour surgery.

    John was tried on the spousal rape charge, but acquitted. For her attack, Lorena was found not guilty due to temporary insanity.

    John went on to appear in adult movies and have run-ins with the law, including convictions for domestic battery against a later girlfriend and theft of more than $140,000 in clothing.

    Lorena spend 45 days in a psychiatric hospital and continued living in the D.C.-area. “

    VF, you were right way back when you predicted the Supreme Court would rule in the mining company’s favor, remember?

    This paves the way for other bodies of water to be sacrificed for the pursuit of wealth. So sad…

    Mine can put waste into lake
    High court backs CdA-based company

    WASHINGTON – The Supreme Court on Monday upheld a federal permit to dump waste from an Alaskan gold mine into a nearby lake, even though all its fish would be killed. Environmentalists feared the ruling could weaken protection of other lakes, streams and waterways from mining waste.

    The court ruling clears the way for as much as 4.5 million tons of mine tailings – waste left after metals are extracted from the ore – to be dumped into Lower Slate Lake in the Tongass National Forest, about 3 miles from the mine, instead of being disposed of in a special tailings pond.

    The court, in its majority opinion written by Justice Anthony Kennedy, said the Army corps was correct in agreeing with the mining company that the waste should be considered “fill material” and not subject to more stringent Environmental Protection Agency standards under the federal Clean Water Act.

    lol @ huff post comment. I don’t run over to the huff post. It comes to me and I sometimes peruse it, but not regularly.

  211. rosehips says:

    VF, the ACORN-Iran election connection is a very well kept secret apparently. I did find this tidbit however:
    “A recent census pole taken by Iranian ACORN volunteers in the country had estimated that over 65% of the population was now gay, and no longer indulged in heterosexual activities, while the indigenous camel and sheep population had exploded.”
    http://www.thespoof.com/news/spoof.cfm?headline=s3i54802

  212. VotingFemale says:

    The basis of the lawsuit against the Government of Alaska was based, not on whether dumping tailings in a lake was a good or bad thing… rather on the subjective decisions of judges who obsufcated policies and protocol to affect a self-desired outcome.

    The government of Alaska ask for clear cut policies… and a halt to arbitrary tactics to skirt regulations.

    And I well remember our debate of so many months ago on this subject… and the USSC decision necessarily had to come down as it did.

    …and the decision was correct, in my view.

    This is a nation of law… where evading the law in a “end justifies the means” does not usurp the law. IF one wants to change the law then get it changed in a proper way… dont pull BS tactics from the bench.

    rosehips says

    VF, you were right way back when you predicted the Supreme Court would rule in the mining company’s favor, remember?

  213. VotingFemale says:

    That mine has close to one billion dollars in gold to be recovered and added to the wealth of the US.

  214. rosehips says:

    VF, so you don’t think that redefining the word “tailings” constitutes evasion of law? We have clean water laws designed to protect our water and life that depends on it. It is illegal to dump toxic tailings into the lake. So they changed the name to “fill”. Talk about obbuscation.
    This ruling is clearly a travesty of justice and a dodge of the law.

  215. rosehips says:

    VF, all that gold won’t do us any good if our water is at risk. Try quenching your thirst with gold next time you are parched out on the links.

    Confidence in Stimulus Plan Ebbs, Poll Finds
    Obama’s Approval Rating Remains High, but Shift in Public Outlook Has Political Implications

    Barely half of Americans are now confident that President Obama’s $787 billion stimulus measure will boost the economy, and the rapid rise in optimism about the state of the nation that followed the 2008 election has abated, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll.

    48%, and rising, say the stimulus package has not succeeded or will it succeed in restoring the economy, compared with 39%two months ago.

    well, re: toxics in our water. I have been very involved (as some of you know) in a the case of a Canadian company discharging over 40 million tons (yes tons!) of contaminated slag from its lead/zinc smelter into the Columbia River just above the US border.
    I used to live in the community of Northport just below the border and have been outspoken about the health issues of the people in the area.
    The Spokesman Review published an article on Sunday which was a full front page feature. I spoke with the writer extensively for the article and gave her contacts and background. She didn’t quote me, I think because I no longer live in the community. Four of my colleagues on the board were quoted however. We got some excellent press for a battle we have been engaging in for over 15 years. We are far from our goal and cases of colitis, chrohn’s disease, ms and a host of other illnesses continue in Northport. Where is the justice?

    I did a blog about it.

    Poll: Reid’s popularity falls among Nevadans

    Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s appeal among Nevadans has plunged dramatically in a new Review-Journal poll, which finds him viewed unfavorably by most likely voters in his home state.

    Reid is still slightly more well-liked than Gov. Jim Gibbons. Both the Democratic senator and the Republican governor are less favorably viewed than President Bush.

    “Fortunately for Reid, he doesn’t have to run for re-election for a while,” said Brad Coker, managing partner of Mason-Dixon Polling & Research Inc., the Washington, D.C.-based firm that conducted the poll. If they decide to run again, Reid’s name won’t be on the ballot until 2010, nor will Gibbons’.

    The poll asked 625 likely voters from around the state whether they recognized a politician’s name, and if so, if they had a favorable, unfavorable or neutral opinion of that person. The survey carries a margin of error of plus or minus 4 percentage points.

    Reid’s favorable rating was 32 percent, compared with 51 percent unfavorable and 15 percent neutral. Gibbons was viewed favorably by 30 percent, Bush by 34 percent.

    The Review-Journal last asked Nevadans their opinion of Reid in early May. At that time, he was seen favorably by 46 percent and unfavorably by 42 percent.

    Even that was seen as alarming for Reid because his favorability did not top 50 percent and because the difference between the two numbers was only 4 percentage points. It continued a slide for Reid that coincides with his taking the Democratic leadership after his re-election in 2004, with 61 percent of the vote.

    The new poll marks the first time the Review-Journal has measured Reid’s unfavorable rating higher than his favorable number.

    University of Nevada, Las Vegas political scientist David Damore said Reid’s position as top Democrat — the first Nevadan to lead his party in the Senate — continues to hurt him, as it makes him a punching bag for Republicans nationally. Especially now that Reid leads the majority party that is at odds with the White House, he is visible as never before.

    If I give you a peyote button but call it “candy” does that make it ok if you have a mind expanding experience and return to your body with a new outlook on life and politics? What if your hubby doesn’t like the new you? Do you think he would be justified to blame me for your transformation?

    The sleeze Sarkozy has said one thing right for a change:

    “The problem of the burka is not a religious problem. This is an issue of a woman’s freedom and dignity. This is not a religious symbol. It is a sign of subservience; it is a sign of lowering. I want to say solemnly, the burka is not welcome in France,” Sarkozy told lawmakers.

    While I agree with him – does this extend to other nationals wearing their traditional dress – such as saris and in the case of my family – kilts? It gets tricky.

    On the other hand, the requirement to wear the burka and other garb like them are the province of laws not practiced in France – yet.

    The USSC agreed with me on their decision on this case. The opposition was using tactics which were not in accordance with the law to attempt to use the law as a tool of their own design.

    Ah but this takes me back to one of the points the leftists have to support Obama’s mild mannered response to the Iran situation:

    Britain got bashed by Iran because BBC was actively involved in assertive reporting, etc. Because the US was more or less silent, the focus remained Iranian against Iranian. Okay – how do we answer this? I’d like to do an iReport with an alternative viewpoint.

  230. samhenry says:

    VF has said “even lion women need to recharge.”

    Indeed, VF, there are no scheduled protests today in Iran. It is well for a little pull back not only for rest and to refresh, but to allow thought to embrace all that has happened so quickly in the past week.

    I won’t continue trying to force a debate on the lake assassination-murder sentence by the USSC. I think I will make a movie about it. I have been having fun making videos and maybe that will help me to get my mind off other stuff.

    I am going to try to cut down on my blogging time. I know that will be tough, but I realized yesterday how much of rl I have delegated to the sidelines.

    The girl who is killed in the video is Neda Agha-Soltan. (Nedā Āġā-Soltān; b 1982 – d June 20, 2009) This is her sister’s eulogy (translation)

    “I am here in order to tell you that she died in her father’s arms.

    “I am here in order to tell you that my sister had big dreams.

    “I am here in order to tell you that my sister was very modest [in her dreams].

    “She longed – just like me – after one day feeling the wind in her hair, and just like me she loved poems by Farukh (?), a Persian poet, and she…

    “… More.. longed for freedom and equality.

    “She longed after one day being able to say, ‘I am Iranian’ with her head held up high.

    “She longed after one day falling in love with a man with a [inaudible] haircut, giving birth to a daugter, singing lullabies at her cradle, or to plait her child’s long hair.

    “My sister died because she was not allowed to live like a human being; my sister died because injustice would not end; my sister died because she loved life so much, and my sister died because she cared lovingly for her fellow humans’ well-being.

    “All our brothers and sisters in Iran: You are not alone!”

  263. tellitlikeitis says:

    Foxwood, What you are seeing are Iranian security forces dispersing the crowd in the video. I would love to help the Iranian people but the USA can no longer afford to be the saviour of the world. We have more than enough of our own problems to deal with these days in our country.

    The government took US$7000 from Neda’s family to release her body for the costs of the bullets they used on her. they then denied them a funeral. they then told her father if he did any interviews they would execute his son.

    About the Iran thing, I went to Wazoo’s website. I want to think that not all Iranians I saw in the recent civil war videos were the ones who yelled ‘Death to America’ & burned & stumped on our flag. This happened less than w/the current generation.

    As a freedom-loving American, I don’t like what happened to Neda. I say this from a humanitarian pov & I would say the same thing if this happened to innocent women & kids in Rwanda where the death toll was higher. And those villagers don’t have cell phones & internet.

    Thanks for the compliment.

    You know I could have instead written, “Many liberals greatly admire Obama, and are extremely devoted to him, ” but, my friend, that would be BORING! I’m trying to animate my readers, not put them to sleep.

    Plus, let’s be honest here. if I had McCain’s smiling mug splashed all over my T-Shirts, car, walls, windows, and owned life size cardboard dolls (I’ve seen several of Big O out here), and if I said stuff like, “McCain is special. I think he’s like Lincoln and FDR and maybe even God a little, and that he was freed from his POW camp because he has a special mission in this country and the world. When he speaks I get a chill up and down my legs,” wouldn’t you consider me “McCain-atized”?

    Yesterday he asked me how many seeds did I put in one hole cause corn looks real crowed.

  322. “Men are like grapes and it’s our job to stomp on them and keep them in the dark until they mature into something you’d like to have dinner with.”

  323. YES! Blogwood that is IT! Thank you! I love Rod Stewart but couldn’t wrap around what song it was.

    Thanks!

  324. Arlene, girl you’ve done it now! YOu know your husband knows what you did! Sneaking that extra corn in the hole!

    You are too funny! and I imagine my back would have been hurting too. We never planted corn.

  325. Foxwood says:

    This isn’t the best version I’ve heard.

    Every picture tells a story
    (rod stewart / ron wood)

    Spent some time feelin inferior
    Standing in front of my mirror
    Combed my hair in a thousand ways
    But I came out looking just the same

    Daddy said, son, you better see the world
    I wouldnt blame you if you wanted to leave
    But remember one thing dont lose your head
    To a woman thatll spend your bread
    So I got out

    Paris was a place you could hide away
    If you felt you didnt fit in
    French police wouldnt give me no peace
    They claimed I was a nasty person
    Down along the left bank minding my own
    Was knocked down by a human stampede
    Got arrested for inciting a peacful riot
    When all I wanted was a cup of tea
    I was accused
    I moved on

    Down in rome I wasnt getting enough
    Of the things that keeps a young man alive
    My body stunk but I kept my funk
    At a time when I was right out of luck
    Getting desperate indeed I was
    Looking like a tourist attraction
    Oh my dear I better get out of here
    for the vatican dont give no sanction
    I wasnt ready for that, no no

    I moved right out east yeah!
    On the peking ferry I was feeling merry
    Sailing on my way back here
    I fell in love with a slit eyed lady
    By the light of an eastern moon
    Shangai lil never used the pill
    She claimed that it just aint natural
    She took me up on deck and bit my neck
    Oh people I was glad I found her
    Oh yeah I was glad I found her

    I firmly believe that I didnt need anyone but me
    I sincerely thought I was so complete
    Look how wrong you can be

    The women Ive known I wouldnt let tie my shoe
    They wouldnt give you the time of day
    But the slit eyed lady knocked me off my feet
    God I was glad I found her
    And if they had the words I could tell to you
    To help you on the way down the road
    I couldnt quote you no dickens, shelley or keats
    cause its all been said before
    Make the best out of the bad just laugh it off
    You didnt have to come here anyway
    So remember, every picture tells a story dont it

  326. Foxwood says:

    What happened to the vid?

  327. arlenearmy says:

    WG
    Yeah girl, it’s not fun planting corn in a personal home garden, unless you got small kids (who are lower to the ground).

    But planting corn on acres is easier cause we can use farm equip. (a “planter” or “drill”).

    And the bad part of what I did, I planted the corn too close to the okra. And okra grows real tall.

  328. thanks Blogwood, that is it. I thought I remembered you saying, gotta shower…then quoting verses from that song.

    So, sorry man. Did I hurt your feelings? Truly I usually don’t have any time here but tonight I doAND, sometimes if something strikes me funny I almost can’t help myself. Totally, my GIGGLE BOX got turned over and I couldn’t stop it. Totally not meant to be rated R.

  329. Arlene, ooohhhh yes, how I remember the Okra!

    Tall and itchy too!

    Sorry you planted it too close, there goes the old addage, ” you live and learn”.

    I can’t believe your tomatoes aren’t doing better either. We planted some in 5 gal buckets and a two in my flower garden out back and they are all doing really well. It’s funny too because the first couple of tomatoes we ran in here, cleaned, sliced and ate it like it was a ceremony! Fresh tomatoes are so great!

  330. arlenearmy says:

    Hey ya’ll got me listening to this Rod Stewart. I want to hear the musty stuff too. Learn something new every day.

  331. Foxwood says:

    I gotta go, I’ll check back on my break.

  332. Taini says:

    Obama dares to still BLAME the USA for the problems in the Middle East. How totally divisive of him!
    IMO, this illegally elected official is a fraud and should be impeached as a traitor to our country and our people. He has the backbone of a jellyfish.

  333. Taini says:

    Perhaps he considers this a ‘learning” session? Sit back and watch the show and see what tactics works to keep the masses of angry protesting citizens at bay.
    Yeah really? Like our current congress attempting to force gun control maybe to disarm the people, leave them helpless to overturn corrupt powers and just shoot them in the streets if they protest?? Yeah, maybe that’s the plan??
    FORCE EVERYONE to OBEY or ELSE?

  334. Taini says:

    Off my soapbox for now. I’m just furious at watching that beautiful UNARMED woman die in the street like a rabid animal and at the lame ‘appalling’ comments of the current ruling US president elect.

  335. Taini, Amen sister! Yes he has an agenda and it is diabolical.

  336. Yes that is so true, it’s like she dies over and over again with every arrogant flippant comment B. Hussein O. makes.

  337. Foxwood says:

    Could not find a good working Cell Site. So I had to go to work and fix one. Guess that’s my job. Anyway. Sir Bob of Foxwood is back in his green tights to defend the fair Ladies of Nobamashire.

  338. Foxwood says:

    Darneth! I must slayeth the Dragon that ate my Lords Cell Site. Drateth! It be down again. I smite thee ye Dragon!

  339. samhenry says:

    I cannot stay silent about this.

    Obama can’t stop saying “but I won.” At his press conference June 23 when asked if John McCain’s comment about responding more strongly in support of protesters in Iran, President Obama said that while Senator McCain has a right to speak out, etc. that still his own responsibilities were greater because “I am the President.”

    There are some things that don’t need to be said; there is no need to state the obvious. The primary function of the President’s remarks were to cut Senator McCain off at the knees. He still can’t manage to bring us all together.

  340. samhenry says:

    Video not only supports my above assessment but shows his treatment of Conservative Media Representative:

  342. samiam60 says:

    Good morning Samhenry so good to see you this fine day

  343. samhenry says:

    Fox news is reporting that there is credible evidence that the President coordinated or preplanned exchange with Representative of Huffington Post. It is a distraction to the heavy issues of the conference. It is believed that the President made sure the Huffington Post rep had a front row seat.

  344. samhenry says:

    Thanks Sami. I’m supposed to be taking a break from blogging. Thought I’d make a quiet early morning one but glad you showed up. Good to see you too. What do you think of that pre-planned press conference of the Prez. His temper showed and IMO he was very heavy handed. He’s evolving as a dictator.

  345. samhenry says:

    I am thinking that the reason Obama feels simpatico with Middle East MuslimGovernments is that they are, in the main, dictatorships.

    His tone is really a concern IMO.

  346. samhenry says:

    Have to get back to bed, Sami. Dogs get me up early for FOOD. They are like that plant from outer space in “Little Shop of Horrors.” FEED ME!

    Have a very good day my friend. Dog overboard…

  347. samhenry says:

    PS Arlenearmy ordered me to bed early last night. I’ll bet she doesn’t want me up early! bbl

  348. samiam60 says:

    Hope to see you on later Samhenry. I always enjoy your input. Obama is a rising Dictator as it is now beginning to become very clear.

  349. samhenry says:

    BIG Thanks Sami – I am supposed to limit my on-line time and have not been doing it. If I don’t show up during the day, I’ll meet you hear about this time mornings for coffee and comment. Thanks for your appreciation of my input. The feeling is mutual – I look for yours.

  350. karmahd says:

    GOOOOOOOOOOD MOOOOOOORRRRNING BLOGWOOD!!!! Morning to the Sams, hope you two have a fine day, see you at lunch, K

  351. Hey SamHenryith, Blogwood, Karmish, et al.

    So, you guys are all off to the salt mines huh?

    Have a great day as you wortketh and eatith (karma)! hahaha

  352. rosehips says:

    good morning all. is anyone home?

  353. VotingFemale says:

    Moring Rose, Warrent, Karma, Samh, Samiam!

    Hope everyone is well.

    I needed to regroup and it was helpful… weather was sucky chilly but played 9 holes… 5 with light rain.

    Birds were really singing and everything was brilliantly green… due to all the slow rain over the last week. worms didnt like it too much and were at the surface looking for O2.

    Won by 1 stroke but the water really changes the dynamics of the game… especially on the greens.

  354. m2 says:

    Hi y’all! Nice day out today!! Elena sitting on her potty for the last half hour… not sure if this is how ppl go about “potty-training”…

    Love this comment by Sam,

    Hope to see you on later Samhenry. I always enjoy your input. Obama is a rising Dictator as it is now beginning to become very clear.

    Slipping in the “Dictator” always makes me chuckle.

  355. m2 says:

    VF or anyone, did you guys see Beck on O’Reilly last night. It was too funny…

    The “O’Beck Factor”… LOL

  356. VotingFemale says:

    Morning m2!

    I would not let her be the center of attention on the potty… 1/2 is too long. in my humble opinion… have potty trained two…

  357. VotingFemale says:

    I saw that! The O’Beck Factor!

    I think Bill O is bit jealous of the young new guy! 😉

  358. rosehips says:

    hey vf, m2…et al.

    m2, did the penny ever surface?

  359. m2 says:

    I know, it’s my husband!! He is letting her do whatever… but I guess I avoided her crying by letting her stay… I def. need to get a system going.

  360. VotingFemale says:

    Barney Franks-enstein is scheduled to appear on the Factor tonight.

  361. m2 says:

    I don’t know… I didn’t see any coins in yesterday’s diaper, and today I didn’t check. She seems to be going all right… So I ain’t gonna worry ’bout it… maybe she didn’t eat one and I just caught her with the 2 coins in her mouth before she could eat any.

  362. m2 says:

    yes, I heard about that. Wonder why Franks agrees to go? Because he wants to stick up for bad democrat policies?

  363. rosehips says:

    speaking of potty training…did I ever tell y’all about Austin’s duck poop (in his potty)? omg…I called him the Andy Warhol of “poop art”. It was so amazing I took a photo. haha

  364. rosehips says:

    I think it’s unlikely she swallowed one. she’d probably gag on it and choke.

  365. samhenry says:

    Although in the end hopeful about Obama’s potential to succeed in the Middle East, Reihan Salam wrote today in the DAILY BEAST. The last quoted sentence is the best, natch.

    ***********************

    After watching President Obama’s latest press briefing, I’ve reached a troubling conclusion: For the good of America and the world, the man badly needs a regular supply of nicotine.

    Though smoking will undoubtedly put the president at grave risk of developing a serious illness, it also will keep him from lashing out at innocent reporters and, behind closed doors, any number of worshipful subordinates.

    As America’s most beloved president in a generation, Obama has, you get the sense, grown accustomed to adulation. And when he doesn’t get it, he has a tendency to snap. Or he’s just going through nicotine withdrawal. Either way, it’s not pretty.

    ********
    No one doubts that the president wants to condemn the crackdown in Tehran, yet he’s also hoping to cut a deal with Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.

    The trouble is that Obama fundamentally misreads the Islamic Republic, just as he once misread Iraq and Afghanistan. To his credit, however, the president eventually reversed course on both fronts, without ever saying so.

    *******
    The great danger of Obama’s response to the street protests in Iran has been that he’d choose Iran’s thuggish ruling class over Iran’s masses on the grounds that Serious People don’t fret about human rights when grand strategy is at stake.

    *******

    If the regime can’t do business with the likes of Mousavi, they certainly can’t do business with Obama, no matter how many barbecues he invites them to.

  366. m2 says:

    Now when Austin finds the lady to call his wife, you def. have to show her the duck poo photo. For any mom to do otherwise would be escandalo!

  367. rosehips says:

    okay, working on an ireport. bbs.

  368. m2 says:

    axis of evil in 2003 quoted by Bush: Iran, North Korea, and Iraq.

  369. rosehips says:

    hey sh!

    I am so glad I never got addicted to tobacco, although lately I have thought about taking up the habit. lol. even jonah doesn’t see the harm. it takes years to develop lung cancer and i’ll be long dead by that time right? ha

    m2, i will definite show the pic to austin’s wife. scary thought but who knows?

  370. m2 says:

    Obama has the worst pressure/stress reaction of anyone. That’s what happens when you coast through your life and people suck up to you… you can’t deal with minimal serious questions directed at your decision-making.

  371. samhenry says:

    Hey Rosie – we don’t need tobacco. We can’t handle the blog/computer addiction! lol. Here we are blogging and iReporting. My report yesterday with only mild Presidential criticism ruffled feathers. So many bad birds shouldn’t roost together on a hot day. WG – they smell musty!

  372. samhenry says:

    Morning M2 enjoyed the tweeted vids. Love your humor – but especially re Elena. You two are a show in the making.

  373. m2 says:

    thanks, that jim gaffigan is pretty funny. I was watching all his vids on youtube last night and cracking up while I baked some from the box brownies.

  374. VotingFemale says:

    If she swallowed it as opposed to aspirating it… she will be fine

    but keep all things with magnets attached to it and magnets themselves away from her… swallowing two or more of those… even little ones will require surgery in many cases as they get stuck attracting to each other separated by intestine walls and will no move and cause very serious problems.

  375. rosehips says:

    m2, jim gaffigan is jonah and my very fav. oh, he is a pisser.

    just a driveby…

  376. VotingFemale says:

    Rose… you are too funny… re:ciggies but you have much better things to spend money on…

    and FWIW, ganja smoking leads to smoking harder drugs… such as nicotine

    hahahahahahahaha

  377. m2 says:

    yeah rosie, “King Baby” … so funny!!!
    (that’s Gaffigan’s comedic handle)

    and VF, you are so right about magnets. I have been fearful of those from day 1. They even have “magnet” toys out there, but I won’t buy any for her, just b/c she’s like a garbage disposal of eating things she shouldn’t. I don’t even have the letters for the fridge, b/c I figure she’d eat them. Yesterday she ate my blockbuster return envelope for my blockbuster movie-mail service… this kid!!

  378. VotingFemale says:

    Michelle Malkin has some real girl cajones alright…
    I respect her for that…

  379. m2 says:

    she ‘tells it like it is’ and never holds back.

  380. samhenry says:

    Malkin link appreciated M2. I have seen Obama asked if public financed healthcare for the masses would not put the private insurers out of business. He refuses to see that it will. He counters that if they run their businesses well, this won’t happen. He must be blind that businesses will not drop private insurance – or any insurance – from their employee benefits. Walmart is already infamous for INSTRUCTING its workers where to get aid – especially medical – in all of their locations:
    ***********
    nstead of providing affordable health care, Wal-Mart encourages its workers to sign up for public health assistance. On a Dec. 19, 2003 broadcast of “NOW” with Bill Moyers, former 10-year Wal-Mart manager Gretchen Adams said managers kept “a list of the state agencies so that we could have some place to send these associates…for Medicaid, for well-baby care, for whatever it is that they need.”

    ************

    The article also pointed out that of course what is happening is that Walmart is being subsidized by taxpayers.

    Potty training by samiam:
    I watched as my daughter in law when frustrated potting training my grandson. I felt bad and did not want to voice an opinion. So like a good grandpa I went and got him little boy under roo’s with a neat builder bob print on them. I told him that if he had an accident they would be ruined.
    Whalla, problem solved.
    Am I good or what?

  382. samhenry says:

    Sami – you approach magnificent in your poop parlance with your daughter in law.

    At the vet yesterday with Imp, I told staff I had to go to the bathroom. Staff misunderstood as the opened the door to the outside for me – or did they! Great embarrassment all around as I said “oh, that’s a good idea – I should try…”

  383. m2 says:

    healthcare can be solved by fixing insurance costs, not by destructing everything for State controlled care at 3 trillion expense. Why do liberals think that there is only ‘1’ way to solve a problem? Narrow-minded that.

    Either narrow-minded, or willfully blind in favor of power, in which case the latter is despicably immoral.

  384. samiam60 says:

    I also have a sex talk for 14 year old boys. It has a blindness clause in it and still works since I was 14.

  385. samhenry says:

    Sami – seeing eye dog – clever wolfman.

  386. m2 says:

    hey that’s a great idea Sam, thanks!

  387. samhenry says:

    Sami – blindness clause lol. MY PARENTS used that blindness technique. I’ve always had bad eyes. I never have to ask the doc why. Goes hand in hand that if you tell a lie, your tongue will turn white.

  388. samiam60 says:

    My avatar is a seeing eye dog by the way, lol

  389. m2 says:

    taking the subject out of any “argument” -is not the leftist way to only acquire ultimate central gov’t control as the solution. I thought “liberals” considered themselves educated ivy-leaguers… they can’t think of any way to solve problems except one?

    Pathetic.

  390. m2 says:

    another way they mis-represent is to “re-brand” …just like they recently have tried to do with “Cap and Trade” and “Global Warming”…

    It’s the Axelrod Modus Operandi :

    Axelrod’s great contribution: Re-branding! His firm recommended re-naming the initiative after “[i]nternal and external respondents expressed the opinion that the word ‘urban’ is code for ‘black’ or ‘black and poor’….Based on the research, consideration should be given to re-branding the initiative.” Axelrod and the Obama campaign refused to disclose how much his firm received for its genius re-branding services.

    Where do they learn that from? Stalin?

    http://michellemalkin.com/2009/06/19/the-obamacare-horror-story-you-won’t-hear/

    Ah the irony of the Left. They say they are the ones who “care” which is direct contrast to how they operate.

  391. samiam60 says:

    The Liberals are a one track trolly my friend. Or a one trick pony with blinders on all the time. Take off the blinders and they are rendered Mute.

  392. samhenry says:

    M2 – They have taken esoteric courses such as sophistry, logic AND alchemy. They know how to bring any of their programs to projection. Oh, yes and their all time favorite on their summer reading list “The Prince.” How can we fight that? They think because they can converse in Latin, they can walk on water and do miracles.

  393. samhenry says:

    And the walk on water bit has made for a lot of wet liberals. We always knew they were all wet. As usual, they wouldn’t face reality or heed our advice.

  394. samiam60 says:

    In this I do have to give Rosehips alot of credit being a self proclaimed leftist. She unlike other Libs is willing to come on here and hear the conservative point of view. Although she offers great debates I have to give her credit for having an open mind and at least hearing the other side of the coin. Very few a liberal can do that!

  395. m2 says:

    yes her respect to other viewpoints is commendable in a time when all liberals have fallen victim to “agitation” and Leftism.

  396. VotingFemale says:

    I am around… just working on a new blogpost… re: Obama’s unrestrained Iran hot dog diplomacy

  397. samhenry says:

    Sami – I’m a conservalib and I am here. I can see the other side and the other side is my better half. Don’t want to take Rosie’s thunder but you need to hear my confession! “I was blinded by the light…”

  398. samiam60 says:

    Thanks Samhenry and M2 for all your input here today. This is a great day off for me and I am looking forward to VF’s new post on the Obama weinnie.

  399. m2 says:

    rose has the ability to articulate and think for herself, when most liberals have 2 words circulating their brains. Bush and Palin. If you go out of their rabid foaming at the mouth against Bush/Palin league, they get defensive, personal and implode. It’s actually hilarious.

  400. samiam60 says:

    Samhenry I did not know you were both a Conserv and a little bit Lib. That can be a good balance sometimes when kept in check. I would like to hear more from you on this “Light”

  401. m2 says:

    they don’t know that for over 6 years there has been a driven effort by Soros and his billionaire friends, driving his Socialist effort, and buying up “supposed grassroots” organizations. These libbies think they are “fighting the man” and they are really just broadcasting the man’s desires and anti-American near-communist 1-worlder mission. Soros’. It it wasn’t so sad, and unhealthy for the Republic, I’d laugh myself to death.

  402. samhenry says:

    As a sometime liberal Republican who pulled the wrong lever in the voting booth, I have always been for McCain – I just wish he had chosen a more seasoned candidate. I also think that at times Palin divided Republicans. I think she is getting better at things. By 2012 she should be OK.

    Now we see that Obamer is not any better prepared that Palin – and a helluva lot nastier and arrogant.

  403. samiam60 says:

    M2 none of this Socialist crap just happened as you state. We can now look back as you have and see the trail that brought us to this unfortunate end. I only hope this is not the end.

  404. m2 says:

    great picture of “the Man” that cracks the whip on libbies here in my repost link,

    http://michellemalkin.com/

  405. samiam60 says:

    Obama truly has Less experience than Palin and it shows. Just look as his poll numbers begin to slide Samhenry. I pray that the American People in their Righteous Indignation wake up in time to stop the Madness and restore this once great Republic to its former Glory.

  406. m2 says:

    I do and don’t blame people that voted Obama. I do, but it’s not their fault the media didn’t vet him, show his slum-district Chicago results, or uncover his Marxism which would mean the death of America, the world’s 1 hope, where oppressed peoples scream in English daily “Help Us” and wish to move here.

    Also, in typical liberal fashion, they know they can’t be elected truthfully- so he painted himself as a fiscal conservative to get elected.

    That, and 8 years of incumbent rule, is why I don’t blame people. People need to get smarter though, and stop letting charged media heighten everything. I saw so many jokes from friends that I love about Palin and “birthing retards”… so again, I blame the media (which had been orchestrated/set-up by Soros since 2003) for creating vile and disgusting attitudes from countryman to countryman.

    If you voted for Obama, I don’t fault you.
    Many were duped. And many tensions were risen to the point that we forgot that we are all humans. Palin is one, and for one human to treat another in that way is the only 1-world notion of humanity I employ. Treat each other decently.

    But like the terrorists in oppressed countries know, human nature loves violence, and like Obama and Alinsky know, using the people in that way could only be better for hiding their motives.

  407. samhenry says:

    Sami – I was blinded by the light surrounding the pariah messiah. Since he really didn’t pay attention in church, he couldn’t be expected to get the messiah thing down. He wore a mask.

    I am VERY concerned about the Obama that is evolving. He is sinister, sneaky and scary. And I also am not pleased with his gardener girlfriend. What a ploy – a veggie garden on the WH grounds. That’s a lot like Carter and his wife walking down PA avenue the day of the inauguration – total socialist BC. If you succeed and want to ride in a limo to the WH, in their minds, that would be inappropriate. Well they dropped a lot of the plain from Plains garbage and started to use the good china by the end of his term.

  408. samiam60 says:

    I have some stuff to do for now but will be back later as I get a chance.

  409. samhenry says:

    GEEZE Sami – was it my word choice “conservalib”? I also have to get going on some chores.

    Dog overboard….

  410. m2 says:

    later Sam, and SH- I thought this was a good read from AT yesterday:

    Dear Robin:

    Can you explain why liberals are so angry?

    Jen

    Hi, Jen:

    Puzzling, isn’t it? You’d think that since liberals have won big time, they’d be sitting pretty, chilling on the couch, all happy clappy. Instead, they’re acting like angry victims of “the man.”

    Why is this? You don’t have to read much further than Saul Alinsky, Obama’s role model. Alinsky taught disciples to foster resentments, agitate people, and create paranoia. He preached ridiculing and intimidating all opponents, especially reasonable people. His mission — and I think the goal of the Powers that Be — was revolution so that the haves were on the bottom, and the have nots were in power.

    By the way, did you know that the dedication on the first edition of Rules for Radicals read as follows, “To the very first radical, the first radical known to man who rebelled against the establishment and did so so effectively that he won his own kingdom — Lucifer.” How creepy crawly is this? Once the book was a hit, the dedication was expunged from later editions. It makes me think of a line from a Bob Dylan song, “You have to serve somebody. It might be the Devil or it may be the Lord but you’re going to have to serve somebody.”

    For the average Joe to inflict cruelty on another, he has to trick himself psychologically into thinking he’s doing good. There are defense mechanisms employed, rather primitive ones like dissociation. He dissociates from his humanity and the humanity of the other. He represses his human urge to empathize and protect. He projects his self hate and shame onto the other person. Just look at what’s being done to good Christian women like Carrie Prejean and Sarah Palin. Most people know deep inside that making rape jokes and wishing decent folks harm is contemptible. So they turn it around, demonize the other. and delude themselves into thinking they’re right.

    Lastly, to control people, the power structure uses addiction. Our masses are fed addictive technology, media, highly sugared food, antidepressants, and illegal and psychotropic drugs. Anger itself is addictive. It feels powerful, and stimulates feel good chemicals like adrenaline.

    Now liberals will balk, arguing that conservatives are being mean too. But the crucial point here is that liberals are in power. When underlings at a job gripe about the boss, they are letting off steam. When people who hold the power act like schoolyard bullies, that’s dangerous. That’s the slippery slope into sadism and fascism. We might already be there.

    PS Under Carter (he is a good man, not a good president), I was so afraid he would put an old car seat on the front porch and sit in it with Roselyn nights.

    Thank s Samhenry I was curious as to how you came to your thinking. I too almost pulled the Obama lever myself after being swept away by his most inspiring speeches. Fortunately for me that old saying ” When in doubt don’t Prevailed and I went for McCain.

  413. samiam60 says:

    Roselyn was pretty hot as I recall, and Sarah Palin was what pushed me over the top for McCain.
    She is just so Hot and home spun like an every day American to me.

    M2 – a very good read indeed. We are on the slippery slope brought to us courtesy of a very slippery character masquerading as a 95% tobacco free agent of goodness. There is no 95%. It’s like being a little bit pregnant. Smoking behavior is the key to his personality: He is addicted to his persona of savior and he sneaks around to have a cig. And of course the withdrawal from either addiction makes him Explode

    Old Johnny Carson skit on TV last night. He was the mighty Carson with the turban divining answers to tricky questions. One was: Shish, boom, ba. Answer – the sound an exploding sheep makes. We soon should hear lots of explosions.

    Great read M2, I appreciate that

    Morning Sam, Sam and M2.

    Friday two important things get voted on.
    Cap and Trade in the House and Card Check in the Senate. Please call your Reps and Senators.

  418. samhenry says:

    Really hate to leave, M2. I have lots to do around here. I can’t afford help with a lot of it. I am the poster child for what has happened to the middle class – scorned as if we were the richest of the rich and taxed to death for it because we couldn’t afford to fight back. Obama thinks all of us oldies (and he knows we are a LARGE pressure group) will embrace free everything. There is no free anything. He just won’t give us a proper balance sheet for it all, but then we don’t have a proper birth certificate either.

    Have a great day with the dirt-eating one. Tell her to try dimes – smaller and tastier.

  419. samhenry says:

    Hi FOX – have tried to disengage here countless times but now it is chow time. bbl, friend

    Dog decidedly overboard…….

  420. m2 says:

    good reminder fox,

    and I too am heading out of the house to grab a lunch, maybe from that special Scottish institution, McDonald’s. After which, I will surely be sorry.

    later fox, SH and sam

    Latest news from Iran.

    Although things seem to be calming down in iran to outsiders, it is not. This is only because they have arrested the people who were getting the news out for the world to see. They are following IP addresses and crashing into peoples homes to arrest these people and to prevent the news from getting out.
    Arrested journalists have been threatened to write in support of Ahmadinejad and his government and not to support popular gatherings anymore

    Today the main gatherings are at Baharestan Square and Vali Asr in Tehran where there is army helicopters flying around with thousands of detainees family members gathered infront of Tehrans revoution (Enghelab) court. The force police surrounds them, and attack even pedestrians who are walking by.
    The Islamic Republic of Iran does not allow, under ANY circumstances any for of mouring for NEDA ( who represents all the martyrs during the past week).

    The steets , squares and around Baharestan (Approx. South-eastern of Tehran) is swarming with military forces, civilian forces, the security motorists and plain clothed BASIJIS.
    In Baharestan Sq. there is a police shooting, a girl is shot and the police is PREVENTING people from going to help this shot girl.
    People are gathered in Baharestan but the police & Basij’s dont let the core of the rally to form.
    All shops and passages are closed and gunshots are being heard from different streets.

    About 5000 protesters gathered at Sadeghieh Sq, Bassij and Hezbolla start attacking them with helicopters still flying up ahead and vans with heavy machine guns are moving towards Azadi St.
    Theres also protesters gathered at Sepah Sq.
    The shootings continue and the conflict between protesters and special guards is increasing, so far 3 people have been shot (known of). Peak of conflicts is happening at Jomhuri street.

    – these are bit by bit infos coming from someone in Iran via facebook – WHO is beeing looked for all across the country and now seems that facebook is trying to shut down his account.

    Good morning tellitlikeitis. Not sure what to call you now.

    More News on Iran.

    Since the Iranian government is tracking iranian internet users we can help them by changing YOUR time/location settings to Tehran/Iran (GMT +3.30).
    -Protestors in Jomhuri St make police and suppresion forces retreat. The crowd moves to the south of Baherestan Sq, where the shooting continues.
    Vanak, Tajrish and Enghelab square are in very bad situations, the Basij and riot police are placed every 10 feet and react quickly to any stoppage and arrest right on the spot.

    The people thought to be on the governments side, are being paid, BY the government to leave the country and go on vacation until the riot is over to prevent them from injuries by the harsh actions taking place.
    While Basijis are being paid by the government to kill the protesters in the streets…

    – IT HAS BEEN CONFIRMED THAT THE MILITIA ARE USING AXE’S TO CHOP PEOPLE UP. Completely disgusting.

  424. tellitlikeitis says:

  425. Foxwood says:
