Okay, I must post an update. Last Thursday, I posted on how Obama more or less dumped on the US Flag by marketing his own print version of the flag (“Our Stripes”) with what looked like blood wiped across a wall as the stripes and his hideous Communist logo in blue replacing the star field. Well, they took it down. Evidently, the campaign realized that Obama stinks so badly on foreign policy and can’t even fake true love for this country, that it might be bad for his bid at re-election to leave it in his little store.
It was just too eerily reminiscent of the grizzly murders that, with three days notice, they should have prevented at the Libyan consulate in Benghazi, what with all the American blood and stuff. They decided that it would keep Americans too mindful of the pathetic mistakes they made there, if they left it up for all of the lobotomized leftist igno-crats to worship. I mean, that’s like robbing a bank and then writing a song about it.
I can’t believe that this self-important narcissist even attempted something this pathetic! Aren’t there other ways to make filthy lucre, like, say, begging people to give Obama the money they were planning to buy wedding gifts and baby shower presents with, or something? Oh, wait. He’s already been there, done that and bought the t-shirt!
It’s not like people are going to forget this ever happened. Not after every blogger in the world has a copy of the image on their blog. It’s like stepping in doggy poo in the yard and then wiping it on the carpet so they can’t see it on your shoe. Besides, when you’ve piled up the failures and subsequent lies like this “President” has, this is just one more on the pile!

I Ironically Agree – Michael Moore Heckled By Occupiers – Mitt Romney Tells “Gimmee” Lady to vote For The Other Man
It’s pretty ironic how we sometimes agree with those with whom we generally disagree. Take the instance of the daughter of Nancy Pelosi, Alexandra Pelosi, who recently did an expose on the entitlement culture. Kudos, Alexandra, you’ve just been honest with yourself!
Today, I strangely find myself in total agreement with some Occupy Wall Street-ers, as well as Mitt Romney. First, with the OWS people.
Let it be known that I do not normally find it okay to make fun of someone’s appearance. It is used as an indication of his hypocrisy, however, in this post. Michael Moore stands for the feeding and entitlement of the masses, while not only eating more than his self-criticized “share” of the food, but also while owning more than his “share” of the wealth.
I definitely do not agree with much the OWS movement stands for, especially the principle of deserving the wealth of others. This movement is strife with hypocrisy – what with the use of all their technical toys, like Apple products, in the march against the rich industry types.
But members of this movement called out Michael Moore on Saturday, when he came out to “sympathize” with the OWS movement and show his “solidarity”. As he emerged from the crowd, many of the OWS people heckled the grotesquely obese Moore, who always reminds me of Danny Devito’s “Penguin” characterization in the Batman movie, shouting, “50 million dollar, Halliburton invested Michael Moore”. I love it! It’s so true of the filthy rich, obese “documentary film maker”.
Reuters had these excerpts from the words out of Moore’s normally food-engorged mouth:
“I think it’s great that this movement continues to grow,” Moore said. “I think the goals are clear. People are concerned that they have no control over their own democracy. They have no control over their own lives.
“This is the beginning. This park is sacred ground for millions across the country.”
Here’s the video, but beware. This was obviously taken by one of the OWS-ers, so if you want to skip the vomit-inducing part of the video, you can go straight to the heckling of Penguin – I mean Michael Moore by skipping to the 4:12 time mark:
Mitt Romney, who to me is the lesser of many evils, hit a home run as he was heckled while campaigning at Bradley University in Peoria, Illinois. He was speaking when a student, one of the entitlement “gimmees”, yelled out “You‘re all for like ’yay freedom and all this stuff and yay pursuit of happiness,’… “You know what would make me happy? Free birth control.”
Then Mitt , without a missing a beat, returned with, “Let me tell you something, if you‘re looking for free stuff that you don’t have to pay for, vote for the other guy,” Romney responded, “That‘s what he’s all about.”
I’m not a Romney guy, and there’s nothing that he would say that could put a thrill up my leg (wink, wink, Chris Matthews), but it DID put a righteous chill down my spine!
Watch the video, as Mitt Romney verbally spanks the entitled little college “gimmee” girl:
Ray Nagin, the Mayor of New Orleans who, along with then Louisiana Governor, Kathleen Blanco, did nothing during Hurricane Katrine except issue racist statements and blame George Bush (who also did nothing for a while), is under investigation by the Justice Department and the FBI. Nagin is under investigation for accepting gifts and bribes from contractors hired by the city. Is that just as surprising to you as it is to me?
It appears to me that the racist scum, Nagin, is extremely fortunate in the timing of this investigation! What “Attorney General” and pathetic racist, Eric Holder, needs more than anything at the moment (as he gets his hiney handed to him in the Fast and Furious investigation) is a diversion. He needs to go straight down there and drop charges against Nagin, using the extremely-scary-black-panthers-with-batons-harassing-voters defense, which is that he cannot charge Nagin because he is of his own race.
It’s sweet when two people going through the same hard times can help each other. They are both government officials (Nagin being an ex-official) who are under investigation for being crooked pieces of filth. I wipe away a tear as I write this. Sometimes I laugh so hard that I cry.
Do not be surprised when and if this happens. Birds of a feather have been proven again and again to flock together. I look at New Orleans as being the “Chicago of the South”. Both have their own unique brands of great jazz. And both have a special brand of politicians, who, more times than not, end up under indictment.
(Reuters) – Former New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin, the colorful and controversial spokesman for the city after the devastating Hurricane Katrina in 2005, is under investigation by federal authorities, a source with direct knowledge of the probe said.
The source told Reuters on Friday that several people linked to Nagin or the New Orleans city administration during his two terms as mayor ending in 2010 were cooperating with the U.S. Justice Department and the FBI.
The investigation includes whether Nagin received favors or items of value from vendors to the city in return for contracts they received while Nagin was in office, the source said.
A large percentage of this generation of young people are the “gimme” generation. A large percentage of this generation are the “Occupy” generation. A large percentage of this generation are, then, the “Obama” generation.
What happened to the young people who, through their own hard work and tenacity, wanted to be INSPIRED by those with special talents or the ability to make great lives for themselves. Nowadays, most of them want to skip the inspiration and the hard work and simply go for the goods those people own. They want what these people HAVE. They want them to GIVE them everything. They want the GOVERNMENT to give them everything for free! Here’s a hint, freeloaders: the government creates NOTHING. The government owns NOTHING!
Okay, think about it for a minute, geniuses! Assume that the government, who has the right to ZILCH that the rich man owns, takes what he has anyway and gives it to you. Got it? At that moment, you own more than those who are not pathetic enough to ask for more. Now YOU owe THEM what you have that they DON’T have – right?
Here’s the part that will have to be explained to the “gimmees”, because lazy people have no need to learn math. Recall that those with all the wealth are only 1%, while the ones who have less represent 99%. To shorten the process, just skip to the last step with me. After all the wealth of the 1% has been distributed evenly, until EVERYONE has what EVERYONE else has…….EVERYONE WILL BE POOR AND DEPENDENT ON THE GOVERNMENT, WHO HAS NO WEALTH OF ITS OWN!
Just watch this video of a Fox News interview of a Valencia College Economics professor discussing what eighty percent of his students feel the government (hence, we) owe them:
Okay, here goes another domino! American Airlines will file for Chapter 11 bankruptcy, and it blames the unions. One more company that was eaten from within, while given a push from without. When the fuel prices became excessive, AA couldn’t look to its own to tighten the belt and remain in operation. Read from an article at The Blaze:
Besides higher labor costs, American also struggled with rising jet fuel costs. Jet fuel cost an average of $3 per gallon so far this year – a record according to government data that goes back to 1990. Jet fuel is more expensive now than the average of $2.96 per gallon in 2008, when oil rose above $147 per barrel for the first time. It’s risen 56.4 percent in the past five years. The average price of jet fuel was $1.92 per gallon in 2006.
American lost $162 million in the third quarter and has lost money in 14 of the last 16 quarters.Read More…
I personally watched this process from the inside. I worked for a public entity that ate itself from the inside just like a cancer eats its host. I called it “the perfect Socialist storm”. The name of this company included the word “Service”, which is an oxymoron (accent on moron). Its purpose evolved into something that definitely included very little service to its patrons. Its purpose of existence became the fight between management and labor. The very thought of having to provide a service to its patrons became an annoyance!
The company still exists, but the government is planning its funeral as we speak. It tears at my heart to hear the struggles that my friends that remain there are going through right now. I’d give anything if all of them could’ve retired when I did in 2008, when I awoke and realized the nature of the beast and recognized the death rattle. My life has increased tenfold in value (nothing to do with money) since I retired from the US Postal “Service”.
I hate shopping – for anything at any time! I’m willing to camp out in extremely cold weather just to occupy a deer blind for many hours, but there is no way that I’d camp out to get the latest electronics, that I could buy for HALF the “sale” price a month later at WALMART! We’ve all seen the funny viral emails featuring strangely-dressed Walmart denizens!! If I need to buy something and I can’t get it on the internet (yes, I’m willing to sacrifice my sorry identity to stay away from brick-and-mortar stores), then I go straight into the store, after strategic planning, and come out minutes later with the item!
America and her values are in rapid decline. It seems that Americans don’t care about one another, as they did in the “good old days”. Most of us don’t know, or even speak to our neighbors. Shopping for items in the Black Friday-like sales causes once-civilized people to turn into feeding piranha! Can you imagine what the food wars will be like, if this country’s economy collapses? Here are three articles from three separate sources that illustrate how vicious we have become when we want to beat out others to get a good deal.

Black Friday turned into a black mark against American shoppers as riotous crowds brawled over video games, waffle irons and towels, drawing international condemnation and even raising questions about the state of humanity.
One of the most outrageous incidents of the day was in the Los Angeles area, where up to 20 people were injured after a woman at a Walmart used pepper spray to get an edge on other shoppers in a rush for Xbox game consoles. Read More…
Jerald Newman, 54, spent Friday night in a Maricopa County jail hours after being arrested for allegedly resisting arrest and shoplifting, according to the county sheriff’s department.
But the suspect’s family members, as well as at least one witness, said the man is innocent and that the treatment was unnecessary. Read More…
Family and friends were stunned by the loss of a West Virginia man who died while shopping on Black Friday as fellow bargain hunters reportedly walked around — and even over — the man’s body.
Family members told WSAZ-TV that 61-year-old Walter Vance of Logan County, W. Va., had become ill and collapsed while shopping for Christmas decorations inside Target in South Charleston. He later died after being taken to the hospital, family said. Read More…
On a lighter note, this last bit reminded me of an incident involving myself and my two youngest sons. This was four or five years ago at Christmas, so my 15 year old son was then 8 or 9 years old. I had gotten him a mountain bike for Christmas and, having been a rider myself (many moons ago), I was showing him how (not) to jump the bike over a waist-high hill from my from yard into the side yard. After saying (for real), “Watch this!”, I proceeded to jump and then land on the front tire at the bottom of the jump. As my weight shifted forward, I flew over the too-small handlebars and landed in a very bad way that would later require surgery to replace the bone guarding my spinal chord. Okay, so far this is not funny, but we’re getting there.
My youngest son, at 3 or 4 years old, loved to “mow’ the yard with his plastic mower. As I lay there, unconscious, he mowed right around my prone body – kinda like the Walmart Black Friday zombies made their way around the body of the dying man to get to the really good sale items! We now laugh about how my little boy, bent on his mission, mowed around me, but the Walmart incident is anything but funny!
