Happy Mother’s Day!

We Honor All Mothers Who Brought Us Into This World and

Thank Them for the Blessing of Life!




                 M – O – T – H – E – R

“M” is for the million things she gave me,
“O” means only that she’s growing old,
“T” is for the tears she shed to save me,
“H” is for her heart of purest gold;
“E” is for her eyes, with love-light shining,
“R” means right, and right she’ll always be,
Put them all together, they spell “MOTHER,”
A word that means the world to me.

                   ~By Howard Johnson (c. 1915)


Thanks to All You Moms,

We are Only Here Because of  You!

  1. Very sweet. I shared it on Twitter. Thought other moms would love it as I did. Thanks for posting. 🙂

  2. Hugsabunch.all around and Happy Mothers Day!!!! 🙂 🙂

    • Happy Mother’s Day to all our readers who are moms, stepmoms, grandmoms, great-grandmoms, ggreatgrandmoms, godmoms, foster moms, adoptive moms, any other kids of moms. Where WOULD we be without them?

  3. Hope all here that are mothers had a wonderful Mother’s Day. I did, but I was working on some jobs. Still it’s been a nice day. Hubby is cooking a steak outside tonight! He’s so sweet….

  4. Zenway,
    I loved my mom too, but she is now deceased and has been since 1976. I sure do miss her. Seems like only yesterday that she was here. Still, she is in my mind, heart. I will always love her, and we’ll meet again in the resurrection.

    • Newsweek outs Obama! Is that supposed to get people to read their unsavory magazine? They get people to buy it by making the statement “The First Gay President” and yet inside they find he is changing his stance on gay marriage vs traditional marriage, and not the stories about his attendance at the baths at Man’s Country.

      Isn’t that sweet – now he has a rainbow halo! This is 2008 redux only the halo color has changed. Obama as the Messiah makes a comeback. Now I can be very offended! I don’t see him making it to heaven – but I am not the one to judge. I am surprised they didn’t use the photos where his nose is farther up in the air.

      The liberal New York Times presented a poll asking people if they believed Obama on his newest marriage stance. 67% said he made the statement because of politics! Only 23% (not sure of this number – could be any of the low twenties) believed him. What a shocker – the highest percentage don’t believe him. He gets an F in the eyes of the people.

      I don’t think his stance has ever changed, it is just that he never told the truth in the first place. His opinion was apparent when he and Holder weren’t upholding DOMA. It was clear at the time what they thought and what side they were on. I say big deal that he announced his evolution. All it does is say he sides with a minority of the country. The majority has spoken in over 30 states who say marriage is between a man and woman.

      • Romney flip flops but Barry evolves. Romney is excoriated for something HE doesn’t remember but 5 DemocRATS claim happened, but the lamestream defends Warren for claiming to be Cherokee when she’s not. Double standard all the way.

  5. http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2012/may/12/obama-pushes-billion-dollar-stimulus-plan/

    Barry wants ANOTHER ($35 billion) stimulus with MORE MONEY for “green energy” companies. Has he NOT wasted enough of our money on these boondoggles? And he wants us to bail out people how didn’t pay their mortgages.

    • Obama and his cronies wouldn’t make it as investment specialists and their ability to do due diligence is highly suspect. I haven’t seen how many of these failed companies are under investigation. Where did all the money go? There were 13 failed green companies last I read, plus the car company.

      Just before the election he is pushing for jobs again..his record is abysmal. He gives Congress a “To Do” list? Really. And Obama’s job is? Any one remember how Joe was going to oversee all the stimulus money to ensure that it did what it was supposed to do – create jobs. Haven’t heard or seen Joe’s report, have you?

      “All told, the proposals on the president’s list could cost up to $34.7 billion: They are part of a more comprehensive $447 billion jobs package that Congress mostly has resisted.”

      Yeah, that’s the ticket spend more taxpayer money for imaginary jobs!

    • The Night Watchman, How Our Government Works”

      Once upon a time the government had a vast scrap yard in the middle of adesert. Congress said, “Someone may steal from it at night.”
      So they created a night watchman position and hired a person for the job.

      Then Congress said, “How does the watchman do his job without instruction?”
      So they created a planning department and hired two people, one person to write the instructions, and one person to do time studies.

      Then Congress said, “How will we know the night watchman is doing the tasks correctly?”
      So they created a Quality Control department and hired two people. One was to do the studies and one was to write the reports.

      Then Congress said, “How are these people going to get paid?” So they created two positions: a time keeper and a payroll officer

      Then Congress said, “Who will be accountable for all of these people?” So they created an administrative section and hired three people, an Administrative Officer, Assistant Administrative Officer, and a Legal Secretary.

      Then Congress said, “We have had this command in operation for one year and we are $918,000 over budget, we must cut back.”
      So they laid-off the night watchman.

      NOW slowly, let it sink in.

      Quietly, we go like sheep to slaughter…Does anybody remember the reason given for the establishment of the DEPARTMENT OF ENERGY during the Carter administration?




      Didn’t think so!

      Bottom line is, we’ve spent several hundred billion dollars in support of an agency….the reason for which not one person who reads this can remember!


      It was very simple… and at the time, everybody thought it very
      appropriate. The Department of Energy was instituted on 8/04/1977,

      Hey, pretty efficient, huh???




      34 years ago 30% of our oil consumption was foreign imports. Today 70% ofour oil consumption is foreign imports.

      Ah, yes — good old Federal bureaucracy.


      Hello!! Anybody Home?

      Signed….The Night Watchman

  6. Obama was so concerned that his stance on gay marriage might affect his support by black ministers (so much so that they might actually obey the law and NOT campaign for him from the pulpit) that he had a special conference call with them to order them, I mean, to ask them to keep supporting him. Contrary to an article in my paper today, which said it will have little or no affect on his support among devout Christian blacks, Gateway Pundit reports that many religious blacks ARE concerned and some may desert Barry come November. http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2012/05/damage-control-obama-called-black-pastors-after-announcing-support-for-gay-marriage/

    ““Gay marriage is contrary to their understanding of Scripture,” Mr. Coates said. “There are people who are really wrestling with this.”

    In the hours following Mr. Obama’s politically charged announcement on Wednesday, the president and his team embarked on a quiet campaign to contain the possible damage among religious leaders and voters. He also reached out to one or more of the five spiritual leaders he calls regularly for religious guidance, and his aides contacted other religious figures who have been supportive in the past. [TO LEAN ON THEM!]

    The damage-control effort underscored the anxiety among Mr. Obama’s advisers about the consequences of the president’s revised position just months before what is expected to be a tight re-election vote.” [Don’t they mean his FLIP FLOP?]

    Now is the time for Romney to show black Americans that HIS goals are very much their goals, if they’d sit down and listen to HIM and think about where he stands, instead of just believing Barry’s lies about Romney’s policies.

  7. One more from Gateway Pundit, who reports that the progressives are feeling emboldened and believe that these social issues won’t hurt them but will help them. They’re going on the offensive. (They’re offensive, all right!) But this won’t be the first or last time they “misunderestimate” the real Americans who DON’T live in ivory towers but who live in what they disdainfully call “flyover country”: http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2012/05/dems-no-longer-fear-social-issues-believe-gay-marriage-and-free-birth-control-are-winning-issues/

  9. Prepare to be infuriated by Bill Maher once again. He calls Rubio a “teabagger”: http://www.breitbart.com/Breitbart-TV?id=%7BAA4FBDDC-38C6-476B-83CC-B44196206FA5%7D&title=Longoria-Mexican-People-Occupied&utm_source=e_breitbart_com&utm_medium=email&utm_content=Breitbart+News+Round+Up%2C+May+14%2C+2012&utm_campaign=Breitbart+News+Round+Up%2C+May+14%2C+2012&utm_term=More And genius Eva Longoria gives a history lesson on the “pecking order” among Hispanics. So Rubio got special treatment as a Cuban but somehow, in her mind, Mexicans were “occupied.” Gee, I wonder what the “native” Americans felt like when the her ancestors, the Spanish, arrived to OCCUPY them. She says it’s insulting to assume Hispanics would automatically vote for Rubio. (Like assuming over 90% of blacks would (and did) automatically vote for Obama?) She actually gives Obama credit for securing the borders!! (He is responsible for fewer Mexicans coming here–but it’s because he’s destroyed the US economy!) She explains the “tenant” of why we need a guest worker program, and Maher says because “white people” won’t do the jopsssssss. And she agrees! They’re not “American jobs”, she says. Illegal immigrants aren’t “stealing” jobs. (We should go to Mexico and take jobs and see how they feel about it.) “We’re the most well fed country on the backs of people who go to bed hungry.” So she wants to enshrine that system in a government program? “Arizona is a mess,” she says in response to Maher saying “it seems so bullyingwhat they do in AZ. Please. Enforcing the law is bullying. When the Mexicans get around to stopping all the beheadings, is Maher going to decry them for bullying the cartels? What a load …

  10. It’s official: Obama ‘1st gay president’

    Yep…. that’s your….. ‘B ~GAY~ O’

    • I guess this is their latest ploy. Admit it without admitting it. Pretend he’s the first gay president in the same way Clinton was the first black president. Nudge, nudge, wink, wink. Say no more.

      • I wrote that before I read the entire post at WND. Others think the same thing:

        ““I am surprised,” says John Wolf of St. Louis. “Newsweek has six subscribers? I dropped them when they made up stuff for Obama during the election.

        And Larry in California noted: “Clinton was our first black president, according to author Toni Morrison. And Chris Matthews says we can’t vote Obama out because he’s our first black president. I’m confused. Is Obama our first black president, or our first gay president, or our first affirmative-action president?””

        First affirmative action potus. It’s how he’s skated through life. But the irony is that he may not even be black at all.

  11. Let’s get real. Clinton is not the First Black President. Neither is barky. He’s a white American and a pale Kenyan.

    bullpuckies. they’re egomaniacs. with huge libido.

    Allen West is a Natural Born Citizen. Different than barky. Perfect Example of an American with honor, pride and Nationality. BIG DIF.

    and Clinton is, well that depends on what the word is is.

    • Too funny – a pale Kenyan. Indeed.

      How lucky was he that he got more of his mom’s genes than his dads!

      Highly unlikely that the Dunham-Obama gene pool really produced BHO. One look tells you it was almost impossible when you see the rest of the BLACK family. Black was the dominant gene and the recessive gene was white. Think of that white Kenya family group photo where they plopped his head on somebody’s body. He stuck out like a sore thumb among the “real” family gene pool.

  12. funny, that the word ‘Nation’ is a companion with every word centric to ‘nature’. the root. nativity, by birth… ,

    they hate it. its not gay. orchestrated. contrived. weird and queer. odd and peculiar. its manufactured, manually. but impossibly, natural.

    plastic people everywhere in living eye bleeding color. fakery from head to toe, slice and dice and ink and boink.

    sham. usurpation of genesis. …. False

  13. O’Keefe Strikes Again–in North Carolina

    James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas exposed how easy it was for someone to walk in to a polling place and get Attorney General Eric Holder’s ballot, and now it has released another video that shows how easily non-citizens–and even dead people–can vote in North Carolina, a crucial 2012 swing .

    Project Veritas: In North Carolina we find people who are listed as non-citizens according to Jury refusal forms and who are also registered to vote. We get their comment and are offered their ballots. We are offered a ballot in the name of a dead man, and interview an election Judge who says he only wants to uphold parts of the state constitution. We also interview the following officials at UNC who seemingly embrace voter fraud:

    Terri Phoenix — Director – UNC LGBTQ Center
    Dean Blackburn UNC Assistant Dean of Students
    Adam Limehouse – Director for the Coalition to Protect All NC Families.


  14. What a pal! This is taking us back to Evelyn Pringle’s investigation, Michelle’s Increase in pay after BHO became a senator.

    Author Reveals Identity of Man New Obama Book Says Tried to Bribe Jeremiah Wright
    May 15, 2012

    Over the weekend, one of the many shocking allegations to come from Edward Klein’s controversial new book on Obama was the story that someone from the Obama camp tried to pay Rev. Jeremiah Wright — Obama’s controversial former pastor — $150k to keep quiet until after the 2008 election. Wright rejected the hush money. But we never knew who
    allegedly tried to pay Wright off.

    Until now.

    In an interview with Sean Hannity on Monday, Klein revealed the identity of his money middle man — and he’s a doctor from Chicago.

    “What happened is that after ABC’s Brian Ross broadcast the audiotapes –videotapes of the Rev. Wright God damning America and slamming whites and slamming Jews and America, he was contacted by one of Obama’s closest personal friends, a guy who travels on Obama’s plane, who plays basketball with him, who goes on vacations with him,” Klein told Hannity during Hannity’s radio show.

    “I didn’t name him in the book, but I can tell you who he is. His name is Dr. Eric Whitaker. Dr. Whitaker is the vice president of the University of Chicago Medical Center and he’s a member of Obama’s very tight inner-circle. And he sent an email to a member of the Trinity United Church of Christ,” Klein said.


    • Book: Obama Team Tried to Pay Rev. Wright $150K to Keep Quiet Until After 2008 Election

      Rev. Jeremiah Wright said members of Barack Obama’s team tried to buy his silence until after the 2008 election, according to a new book. “The Amateur,” author Edward Klein’s unauthorized biography of Obama, has been making waves with explosive claims that former President Bill Clinton called Obama an “amateur” and encouraged Hillary Clinton to quit her secretary of state post and run against him in 2012.

      VIDEO – Klein and Hannity – About Eric Whitaker, Jeremiah Wright


    • Dr. ERIC! And didn’t his wife go on the junket to Spain with Mooch? And their daughters, too? She’s Mooch’s gyn?

      • Riddle me this: John Edwards is currently on trial because some rich woman who loves him gave money to keep Rielle secret. They’re CLAIMING it was campaign funds, but if it was NOT, there’s no crime involved. So, why don’t they consider Dr. Eric’s “donation” an “in kind” donation to Barry’s campaign because THIS payoff was in the same vein as the Rielle Hunter payoff by rich woman number one? It was done FOR political reasons, to protect the candidates’ campaigns. Why isn’t Barry being indicted for this alleged bribery/payoff, just as Edwards was for having a rich friend pay off Rielle to keep HER quiet?

      • Wait! We’re supposed to believe that Wright didn’t take the money? Right.

      • No, sorry. I misremembered. The wife was Marty Nesbitt’s wife. Best friends, the lot of them: https://wtpotus.wordpress.com/2011/09/23/another-day-another-scandal-tread-marks-for-pals/comment-page-1/#comment-63109

  15. Who will investigate this payoff?

    Longtime Obama pal Eric Whitaker keeps popping onto political scene
    12:07 AM 05/15/2012

    Eric Whitaker has been friends with Barack Obama ever since they pursued graduate degrees at Harvard together.

    Whitaker — who now runs the Urban Health Initiative (UHI) out of the University of Chicago Medical Center .

    In a Monday afternoon radio interview with Sean Hannity, Klein revealed that Whitaker had purportedly offered Rev. Jeremiah Wright — an infamous and challenging weight on Obama’s 2008 campaign — $150,000 to stay silent until after the election was over. Wright refused Whitaker’s offer, Klein said.

    Also on Monday, White House Dossier reported that the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has awarded the UHI a $5.9 million taxpayer grant.The UHI was originally inspired by a program created by Michelle Obama when she was a highly paid executive at the University of Chicago Medical Center. She was involved in creating the UHI as a means of pushing low-income Chicagoans with non-urgent ailments away from the university’s emergency room and toward neighborhood clinics.

    Whitaker now leads that project.

    HHS insisted that the decision to award the competitive grant to a program run by Obama’s best friend was free from White House involvement. Obama’s relationship with Whitake also intersected politically in 2008 when then-Sen. Obama sought to fend off questions regarding his political proximity to Tony Rezko.Rezko, in his prior role as former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich’s fundraiser and adviser, had his business associates appointed to various positions and boards in the state. Using that leverage, Rezko was able to illegally demand financial kickbacks from businesses looking to set up shop in Illinois.Rezko is now serving out a 10 and a half year prison sentence for his involvement in political corruption.


    • This is going to be huge…I just listened to the video of Klein telling about his 3 hour talk with Jeremiah Wright. The Rev. is furious, fumigating is the word I think that was used, because he believes he was thrown under the bus by Obama.

      To Wright: Did you convert him from being a Muslim to a Christian? I don’t know if I can go that far, but I made it comfortable for him to accept Christianity without having to renounce his Islamic background.”


      • Klein is sending the 3 hr interview with Wright to Hannity, so more will come out. Obama didn’t want him to continue his speaking engagements either. I wonder if Wright was offered the money after he and Barack had their secret conversation, because Wright said he couldn’t stop accepting speaking offers because he had kids in college and it was his livelihood.

        Bribery is a felony, isn’t it?

        The Reverend is giving the ultimate pay back to Obama – revenge for tossing him under that bus.

      • Exactly what we found years ago, when looking into the website of TUCC. They supposedly are a Christian church but they “welcome” Muslims (black ones) and syncretize their religions. It allows Barry to CLAIM to be a Christian while he practices otherwise. No wonder so many Americans STILL believe he’s Muslim.

  16. http://www.theblaze.com/stories/new-obama-book-shocker-kennedys-and-obamas-at-war-caroline-considers-obama-a-liar/

    Who said this?

    “I can’t stand to hear his voice any more. He’s a liar and worse.”


  17. Egotist in chief Obama has modified the biographies of OTHER presidents on the WH website in order to ADD HIS NAME to their biographies and point out how his accomplishments are as good as or better than theirs! http://www.commentarymagazine.com/2012/05/15/obama-drops-his-name-into-presidential-biographies/

    “Obama has added bullet points bragging about his own accomplishments to the biographical sketches of every single U.S. president since Calvin Coolidge (except, for some reason, Gerald Ford). Here are a few examples:

    •On Feb. 22, 1924 Calvin Coolidge became the first president to make a public radio address to the American people. President Coolidge later helped create the Federal Radio Commission, which has now evolved to become the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). President Obama became the first president to hold virtual gatherings and town halls using Twitter, Facebook, Google+, LinkedIn, etc.

    •In a 1946 letter to the National Urban League, President Truman wrote that the government has “an obligation to see that the civil rights of every citizen are fully and equally protected.” He ended racial segregation in civil service and the armed forces in 1948. Today the Obama administration continues to strive toward upholding the civil rights of its citizens, repealing Don’t Ask Don’t Tell, allowing people of all sexual orientations to serve openly in our armed forces.

    •President Lyndon Johnson signed Medicare signed (sic) into law in 1965—providing millions of elderly healthcare stability. President Obama’s historic health care reform law, the Affordable Care Act, strengthens Medicare, offers eligible seniors a range of preventive services with no cost-sharing, and provides discounts on drugs when in the coverage gap known as the “donut hole.”

    •On August 14, 1935, President Roosevelt signed the Social Security Act. Today the Obama administration continues to protect seniors and ensure Social Security will be there for future generations.

    •In a June 28, 1985 speech Reagan called for a fairer tax code, one where a multi-millionaire did not have a lower tax rate than his secretary. Today, President Obama is calling for the same with the Buffett Rule.”

    And he can’t even spell doughnut.

    • Holy Toledo – they are really stretching it, aren’t they? When you have no real accomplishments that resonate well with the citizens, and the economy and our institutions are being destroyed by your policies, create a diversion by creating a few sentences to compare yourself to others. Really – Obama has ensured we have social security? Oh do tell us what he did! Congress hasn’t touched social security, but Obama threatened seniors that they might not get their checks!

      Obama’s healthcare – historic in that it was shoved through Congress without a single republican vote, historic in the fact that the darn thing wasn’t read in its entirety by anyone, historic in that the majority of Americans were against it and the democrats wanted it passed no matter the consequences to our healthcare system or our economy. But they want to tout they fixed the “donut hole” while trying to destroy the best healthcare in the world!

      Comparing his rhetoric and dozens of speeches about a Buffet Rule that doesn’t exist and was proven that on paper it wouldn’t help the economy – and he compares that to Reagan’s call for a fairer tax code? (without looking it up, I believe that is out of context for Reagan).

      One accomplishment – he got his face and words on every social medium available – and used it to his advantage to get elected. That is
      “his” accomplishment? Or is that the result of his marketers and advertising gurus?

      About those skewed statistics that were presented to Congress that helped get Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell passed! The numbers were changed to make it appear that those asked were in favor of it when in reality it was the opposite. It was a total scam and now our military is paying for it by having to do extra training and are forced to accept the changes, and the homophobes can lose their careers for any signs of resistance or by being accused of “hate” crimes – whatever those might be in the armed forces. Who was that Democratic Representative who resigned, a former Navy guy, that said “tickling” was common?

      The gall. This is almost as bad as them putting him atop of Mt. Rushmore. Still the epitome of low class arrogance, stupidity, and a form of idolatry was creating the photos of him as angelic with a halo or giving him the appearance of a Messiah.

      • An ordinary person would be embarrassed but he’s no ordinary person. IF this is the doing of his overenthusiastic webpage staff, then an ordinary person would be angry at them for making him look the fool. But he’s no ordinary person. It’s more likely that he ordered these changes. He has NO humility and NO shame about tooting his own horn over imaginary accomplishments. The gall to compare himself to other presidents. He’s THE ABSOLUTE WORST person to ever disgrace the office.

    • The White House is being ridiculed for making all those changes next to former presidents! Just a taste of the Twitters! Atttaaaack watch!
      These are hilarious!

      Making History: WH Ridiculed on Twitter for Altering Presidential Biography Pages

      @huds_d: In Greek mythology, Narcissus gazed into a pond and saw Obama’s face

      @JohnSantorelli: Christopher Columbus discovered the New World in 1492 and Obama was there to apologize and bow to the natives.

      @CuffyMeh: In 1803, Jefferson bought the Louisiana Purchase for $233 million in today’s dollars, which Obama spent while you read this.

      @EthanMyers007: 30,000 Americans died on the Oregon Trail due to lack of health insurance.

      @iowahawkblog: #Obamainhistory Washington could not tell a lie, Nixon could not tell the truth, Obama can’t tell the difference

      @red_red_head: Obama assured Henry Ford the Volt would be a great idea, but Ford wasn’t sold on the idea of exploding vehicles.

      ‏@AllanRofer: Prior presidencies are merely the canvas upon which Obama’s administration masterpiece is writ.

      @syruss: If you can’t have good history, why not rewrite [others’?]


      • That’s fabulous. We MUST ridicule. That is one thing Barry cannot abide. Too funny. Even Wright says they called Barry the “black Jesus” because of his MESSIAH COMPLEX!!!

        • “But the White House defended its actions, [Of course they did; they’re tone deaf and out of step with America. We don’t like no stinking egotists.] saying: “No biographies have been altered…We simply added links at the bottom of each page to related whitehouse.gov content, which is a commonly used best practice to encourage people to browse more pages on a site.”

          OMG. I can see it now. How much you wanna bet that they spent OUR MONEY to fund a study to determine the “best practice[s]?”

  18. http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2012/05/15/alarm-grows-among-dems-about-obamas-chances/

    Lots of good news in that story. Romney LEADS OBAMA among women AND independents in polls. DemocRATS are worried. Tone deaf Barry advises women at Barnard to “temper but preserve their interest in CLOTHING!” OMG. Talk about stereotyping. We’re not ALL your WIFE, Barry. We do think about more than clothes. But that was what Mooch told him to say, so she also thinks that we are all like her. Clothes HORSES. There are a bunch of good quotes at the end.

    • “What drew my interest initially was a poem published under Obama’s name when he was an Occidental College sophomore, titled “Pop.”

      To show how truly blinded by the Obama aura the media were during the 2008 campaign, all critics who reviewed the poem insisted it was about his grandfather, Stanley Dunham. Rebecca Mead, for instance, writing in the New Yorker, unhesitatingly describes the poem as a “loving if slightly jaded portrait of Obama’s maternal grandfather.” Biographer David Remnick makes the same point: “‘Pop,'” he says as though a given, “clearly reflects Obama’s relationship with his grandfather Stanley Dunham.”

      At least a few critics have seen in the poem an early flowering — please! — of Obama’s inherent progressive decency. Writes poet Ian McMillan in the U.K. Guardian, “There’s a humanity in the poem, a sense of family values and shared cultural concerns that give us a hint of the Democrat to come.”

      There may be family values on display in the poem — after all, the title “Pop” does have implications of paternity — but those values have nothing to do with “Gramps,” Stanley Dunham. As Gilbert argues, and as I do in my book, the poem is inarguably about Obama’s relationship with Davis. Davis almost certainly wrote the poem as well, giving Obama a head start on his career as a literary scam artist. Six years later, Davis wrote a poem under his own name eerily similar in both style and subject matter called “To a Young Man.” Tellingly, perhaps, the Davis family denied me permission to reprint the poem in my book.”

      That poem shows a “sense of family values and shared cultural concerns?” Family values? Please. I was never good at interpreting poems, but that one is CLEARLY, CLEARLY, about a deviate sexual relationship between the young man and “Pops”.

    • Are you kidding me both MO and Oprah both have SIX TOES on their feet! What an aberration..yet no signs of photo-shopping. They look normal until you see the close-ups. I wonder if it occurs on one foot or both?

      They are not Marilyn Monroes!

      What animals have six toes – a sloth?

      What would evolutionists say?

    You see that lovely girl? She was kicked out of the Miss World beauty pageant. She was chosen as Miss Fiji and was to represent the country in the Miss World contest. However, when it was learned that she’s mixed race, part “European” and part Fiji Islander, the Fijian public made a huge to-do because she doesn’t “look Fijian enough.” After the controversy, they found another reason to technically disqualify her–they said she’s a year too young, although the pageant apparently told her earlier that should she win, she’d be able to compete in the Miss World pageant. She said, “I am proud of my identity as a Fijian and have never considered my people as racists.”

    Have never considered. Past tense. I bet she considers them racists now. A full blooded Fijian is replacing her. So much for valuing diversity and not being racist. Oh, yeah. I forgot. Only white people can be racist. Nevermind.

    “Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) wants to know if Google is getting a sweetheart deal from its lease of a California airfield operated by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration.

    In a letter to NASA administrator Charles Bolden, Grassley inquires as to “troubling allegations” regarding the fleet of Google-owned aircraft at California’s Moffett Airfield, a former Naval Air station now operated by NASA.”

    I’m sure it is a sweetheart deal. Payment for services rendered.

    So, I’m reviewing this article and I came across two interesting things:

    (1) Saman, SAD’s “houseboy” in Indonesia, backs up adopted sister Lia’s contention that SAD was physically abusive to Barry: “Saman said that when Barry failed to finish homework sent from Hawaii by his grandmother, Ann “would call him into his room and would spank him with his father’s military belt.” President Obama, through a spokeswoman, said his mother never resorted to physical discipline.” Doesn’t this remind you of “Upstairs, Downstairs” or “Downton Abbey? Who to believe, the potus and his sister OR the servants? My money is on the servants.

    (2) BARRY BULLIED AND ABUSED THE SERVANTS. Call the Washington Post!!!! “On this occasion, Barry, who was 8 or 9 at the time, asked Saman to turn out the light. When Saman did not do it, he said, Barry hit him in the chest. When he did not react, Barry hit him harder …” Of course, they’re not about to report this because it will call attention the FACT that Barry HAD servants in Indonesia to abuse.

  22. Rush: Obama planning late-year surprise?
    Limbaugh: ‘I wouldn’t rule out something happening’
    May 16

    PALM BEACH, Fla. – A new poll shows Barack Obama trailing likely GOP nominee Mitt Romney in North Carolina – home of the upcoming Democratic Convention – by eight percentage points, and that has some Republicans seeing hope for ousting the incumbent, but also fearful of a late-year Obama surprise.

    Among them is conservative giant Rush Limbaugh, who warned, “I wouldn’t rule out something happening wherever the Democrat Convention is. I don’t know what it would be.” “As president, Obama can do a lot of things later on in the year,” he continued. “He can pull all kinds of rabbits out of his hat.”
    Limbaugh noted Democrats are pulling political ads in Missouri and yanking their money out of Wisconsin in the recall effort of Republican Gov. Scott Walker. [I read this yesterday and the notification came from Media Matters that the DNC was not putting anymore money into the recall battle in Wisconsin! – They are losing in the state where they sent all of the Union and Leftist thugs!]

    “Over at Salon, Glenn Greenwald has a story on a controversial executive order that has civil libertarians fuming.

    According to The Washington Post, Obama has just issued an executive order claiming the power to freeze any assets you own, if you “directly or indirectly” obstruct the new government of Yemen.

    There are hardly any criteria for judging just how broadly this order can be interpreted.

    Here’s the background:

    Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi is the new Yemeni president, and the former Vice President of long-time dictator Ali Abdullah Saleh. Hadi was recently installed after an “election” where he ran unopposed, prompting celebrations about a new blooming democracy in the Middle East. Subsequently, the U.S. has sent millions in aid and military assistance to the Hadi government, despite its unpopularity among observers in the West and most importantly, the Yemeni people.

    Do you oppose this? Better not say or do anything to protest it, or your bank account is getting frozen. The Washington Post sums it up:

    President Obama plans to issue an executive order Wednesday giving the Treasury Department authority to freeze the U.S.-based assets of anyone who “obstructs” implementation of the administration-backed political transition in Yemen.

    The unusual order, which administration officials said also targets U.S. citizens who engage in activity deemed to threaten Yemen’s security or political stability, is the first issued for Yemen that does not directly relate to counterterrorism. … ”

    The story goes on to say that we are currently bombing civilians in Yemen and have OUR TROOPS on the ground there. So this order could be interpreted to BAN protest against our actions there, to install a dictatorship!

    You must read this one. Michelle had divorce papers drawn up after Barry lost his first run for office in 2000. She also was insanely jealous when he was AWAY at Harvard Law School, or so this unauthorized biography says. I didn’t know they were an item then. They met when he was in Chicago working for Sidley-Austin during summers.

  25. Hannity is interviewing Ezra Klein who wrote his latest book, Amateur, and the revelations about Jeremiah Wright, Eric Whitaker, Hillary and Bill, Ophra and MO etc. He played excerpts from the 3 hr interview with Jeremiah Wright. Apparently he interviewed over 200 people and have most of those on tape and he based his book on those interviews. There will be more tomorrow.
