Heh. Nearly 60% of the American voters aren't nearly as worried about touchy-feely as the president seems to be. They don't want that Christmas unipants bomber tried in criminal court - they want the s.o.b. waterboarded until he gives up information. Yo, Barry - you got a mandate!
Willy Week's "Rogue of the Year" award goes to the inept Portland "Mayor", whose sole accomplishment thus far has been to remain in office. What a guy. He lied to get into office, doing his best to destroy the reputation of others in the process. He drove around in a mall parking lot, wrecking his car and those of others, allegedly reeking of booze and with his pants undone. Not a problem for him, of course.
First new car off the blocks in the new government-run motor industry:
Chevrolet Consensus, a ``green'' car featuring a compressed-soybean chassis, the world's first engine powered entirely by dew, and a 14,500-page owner's manual, accompanied by nearly 6,000 pages of amendments.
The manual and other documents are still being written, but Harry Reid insists that once Americans get a peek under the hood, they're going to love what they see.
Islam is, of course, widely recognized as the Religion of Pieces Peace. It's very disturbing to see someone here or there engaging in horrific acts - sometimes against masses of people; sometimes against a woman. It must be something that infidels will simply never understand. Just a "cultural misunderstanding".
What do terrorists know that American voters don't get?
Immediately after Jimmuh Cahtah's defeat, the Iranian hostage situation ceased to exist.
Today, we have The Great Appeaser - and attacks are on the rise; indeed, they've more than doubled in the past year. While Abbie the Crotch-Bomber got all the press, there was another Christmas hopeful:
A man who allegedly claimed he wanted to start a holy war in Memphis will return to court Jan. 11 on charges of threatening to blow up several businesses on Christmas Day.
Mohamed Ibrahim, 35.
You may notice that he isn't a Norwegian grandmother. As a matter of fact, although approaching the upper age-range, this Islamic nutball nonetheless falls perfectly into a profiling curve. We just can't use such profiling, because that's "politically incorrect".
It's why everybody else must be thoroughly inspected, even though they are clearly unlikely to be terrorists.
It's really time to shut down the whole "PC" bs. Who cares if some nutball gets "offended"? Nobody's ever been "offended" to death.
Let's focus on the nutballs. And like it or not, there's one salient fact that the pc crowd deliberately overlooks: not all Islamists are terrorists, but all terrorists are Islamic.
And ever since Americans went with The Great Appeaser, Islamic terrorists have stepped up their efforts.
Obama is a robot, loaded with socialist programming. "Speak softly, but carry a big stick" is a concept that is completely foreign to him.
After that whole Christmas Crotch-Bomb scare, it was nice to see the Prez whip out his teleprompter 72 hours later (hey, he was on vacation!) to deliver the following lies reassuring words to an adoring media the American people: "We will not rest until we find all who were involved and hold them accountable."
Those are some really great words. Spoken by the President of the United States while on vacation (resting) in Hawaii.
The same guy who stated last month, "I will not rest until all Americans who want work can find work." With roughly one in ten Americans unemployed, where is the President? Why, I believe he's resting, on vacation, in Hawaii.
President Barack Obama, in his first public comments on the attempted bombing of a U.S. airliner traveling from Amsterdam to Detroit, described the suspect as “an isolated extremist,” despite reports that the 23-year-old Nigerian had been trained in Yemen, a country he visited twice.
Unlike the President, some local Detroit Muslims have had about enough, and are speaking up to make their views known: Area Muslims, representing the local Nigerian and Yemeni communities, gathered to condemn the failed terrorist attack aboard a flight headed to Detroit on Christmas Day and send a message to al-Qaida supporters that their actions are not condoned by Islam.
"Killing and targeting civilians is unacceptable in Islam," said Dawud Walid, executive director of Michigan's Council on American-Islamic Relations, at a press conference convened this morning in the local chapter's office in Southfield.
He was flanked by three area Muslim leaders: Imam Kazeem Agboola, head of the Muslim Community Center in Detroit; Noa Fasina, secretary of the center; and Ibrahim Aljahim, president and CEO of Arab American Outreach.
The President of the United States is an actor. So was Ronald Reagan. But Reagan excelled at his craft, whereas Obama is a rank amateur. And Reagan didn't need a teleprompter. He had defined priorities. Of course, so does Obama: his just happen to involve a golf course.
In general, it can be agreed that Democratics are inveterate liars: "oh, we're gonna have the most ethical administration in the history of the country", "oh, we're gonna work in a bipartisan effort", "oh, we're gonna put each bill up on the inertubes for 72 hours before any vote". There is only one constant among Democratics: they lie.
This is why the plan to add a runway to Chicago's O'Hare airport is so controversial, as the new runway runs smack into a cemetery. While officials plan to work "sensitively" in order to see the expansion through, the project could displace as many as 1100 voters. This has the potential of disrupting upcoming elections in both the city and the state. Democratics will be working 'round the clock to ensure that the new resident addresses are properly reflected in voter registrations, so damage should be minimized.
But enough of Chicago-style politics; Barry's looking at a tough putt, here. Fortunately, somebody tried to blow up a plane, which affords Barry the opportunity to improve his lie.
There are many legitimate targets in the political arena. But I don't think that Baucus is among them. The blogosphere has been exploding with allegations that the Democrat senator from Montana was drunk or otherwise impaired when he recently spoke on the floor, and the video links seem to support the claims. But this sort of thing is wrong, and conservatives have no business going there.
Baucus may have been drunk, but there is no evidence to support such a contention. The behavior apparent in the videos (find them yourself) may well be completely unrelated to any alcohol or drug ingestion. He may be exhibiting symptoms of Alzheimer's. All we can really say for sure is that as a Democratic, we can be reasonably certain that some form of brain damage is afflicting him.
Our best thoughts go out to him, and to his loved ones.
Oh, and for the people he's supposed to represent: sorry for your loss.
Metal detectors are useless against non-metallic weapons. Wow. And to think we've made Grandma empty her coins into a little tray, and inquired about that hip-pin all these years. Yo! Abdul! Hey, you want your usual seat?
Pregnant Dawn and Sean Cain's huge family, aged 21 years to 19 months, have just enjoyed a very merry Christmas, with every mouthful of their turkey dinner, and every present stuffed under their tree, paid for by taxpayers.
To match their breathtaking haul from the public purse Sean would have to clinch a job paying a gross salary of £51,500 ($82,200). Britain's average salary is just £21,320 ($34,000).
And although he is able, he's definitely not willing.
He and wife Dawn admit their New Year's resolution is never to find work, because no job they'd get in Britain's recession-hit economy will come close to paying the same.
Sean hasn't lifted a finger since 2003 when he took time off to help Dawn handle a problem with the kids. He soon realised he was better off on benefits and has stayed home ever since.
The 20-a-day smoker, who has never worked since she became a mother at the age of 18, said, "People expect us to be scruffy and dirty because we're such a big family, but we're not.
"I look after my kids well and make sure we get by. And every Christmas I make sure they get everything they want."
You bet. When you get everything for free, why not pull out the stops? The guy hasn't worked a day in six years because - well, where's the incentive?
Perhaps the only surprising thing here is that the government hasn't pulled "Mummy's" smokes away from her. Though it's probably the only thing that keeps her calm around all of the children.
Small wonder that Britain is no longer "Great". How long, though, before Americans follow their lead? Or have we already begun?
Not seeing much of it in the mainstream American media, but it looks like all hell has broken loose over there. The government denies that it instructed troops to shoot live ammo into protest groups, but... hard to say what to believe from that government. Protestors report several dead and others wounded - but in at least one case, the security forces have been overrun, judging from the photo. The only US media reporting the story, at this time, is the Wall Street Journal. It almost looks as though average Iranians harbor some strong disagreements with their government.
Looking at the photo, it's easy enough to visualize the military uniforms replaced by expensive suits that our Senators seem able to afford. This sort of reaction seems overdue in the USA.
