I like this look. It's one that she could shoot at Imadinnerjacket and he'd piss his pants.
That's a serious Presidential Look, right there.
And she's a Blue Star Mom. There's no topping that.
Now, would you be scared if Obama looked at you? In any way?

I was traveling to Detroit on business this week when the plots were announced. The wife and I drove down to Dallas yesterday from Wisconsin. On our drive, we discussed these terrorist plots recently uncovered, especially the Dallas bomb plot. You see, our son regularly works in the building that was targeted. As soon as she heard about the plot, she called him to make sure he knew.
Now, the folks in Dallas seem be shrugging the entire thing off. At it's heart, I think it's because Texans have a healthy faith in law enforcement. We respect cops and what they do, and we support the FBI and CIA as they try to root out nutjobs like this. We don't really worry too much about our rights getting trampled on. As long as the FBI stops this kind of thing, I'm not going to complain if Dallas Police have a roadblock and want to look in the back of my Suburban before they let me into the parking garage.
But what do we do with this punk?
I'll tell you the first thing we should do: Give him a good beating. Look, the FBI stung this guy. We have the evidence on him, and they actually waited to arrest him until after he tried to blow up what he thought was a bomb. So don't give me any crap about "innocent until proven guilty". He proved himself guilty as soon as he used that cellphone to try to bring down that building.
So here's my prescription for this POS:
1. Waterboard him. I'll supply the water, the board, and the tape recorder. Find out as much as we can about him and who he worked with, as fast as we can, using any means possible. I don't give a good g-damn if we hurt his feelings. Thinking about my son dying in that building if that bomb had gone off gives me all the incentive I need to ignore this SOB's rights. He gave up any rights he had once he started this plot.
2 Shoot him full of drugs. Give him whatever truth drugs are needed to get him to spill. Ruin his brain -- turn it to mush.
3. Once he's done giving us whatever he knows, don't send him to Gitmo. Send him to the Dallas Gun Club. Give good Texans the right to take out our frustrations on this weasel. I want to beat the crap out of him, then shoot him. Happy to do it. No second thoughts, no guilt, no regrets. I will be happy to personally put a bullet in this guy's brain.
I'll tell you something else. Texans are proud...we are proud of Texas and of the United States. We want the FBI protecting us against this kind of plot, and we really want our military along the border with Mexico to close it off (assuming we're not going to build a fence). But if one of these morons gets through, and we find out that the FBI was stringing him along, we'll secede from the union and shoot all Muslims on sight. You mark my words.
I speak for all Dallas natives. If you moved here from NY or Boston or LA...stay out of it.
This is personal.

Are you freaking kidding me? Brzezinski was interviewed by The Daily Beast (whatever that is) and was reported in The Weekly Standard. He said what?
My dad was an Air Force pilot. Here he is in 1957.
DB: How aggressive can Obama be in insisting to the Israelis that a military strike might be in America’s worst interest?
Brzezinski: We are not exactly impotent little babies. They have to fly over our airspace in Iraq. Are we just going to sit there and watch?
DB: What if they fly over anyway?
Brzezinski: Well, we have to be serious about denying them that right. That means a denial where you aren’t just saying it. If they fly over, you go up and confront them. They have the choice of turning back or not. No one wishes for this but it could be a Liberty in reverse.
He's no longer around for me to ask him, but I can tell you what he'd do if given the lawful(?) order to shoot down an Israeli F-16. Might go something like this:
Controller: Payday 21, bandit is at your 12 o'clock high, 50 miles, IFF indicates Israeli F-16. Consider hostile; repeat: consider hostile.He'd then land at the closest friendly airfield, resign his commission, and come home. No one would dare arrest him.
Payday 21: Right...what's that pesky Jooo gonna do, raise the interest rate on my mortgage?
Controller: Payday 21, you are cleared missiles hot.
Payday 21: OK, what's up? Is there an Iranian bandit on his tail that you want me to shoot down? 'Cause I can do that, you know.
Controller: Ah, negative Payday 21. Your target is Israeli F-16.
Payday 21: Oh, I see. I get to be an ace today, is that it? Shoot down an Israeli F-16, a Saudi F-15, then a German Typhoon , a French Mirage F-1, then top it off with a British Tornado? Cool. Then afterwards you'll hold the court-martial on the airfield as soon as I land, right?
Controller: Payday 21, knock it off. Your target is Israeli F-16; you are ordered to engage and shoot down. Acknowledge.
Payday 21: Are you freaking kidding me?
Controller: Negative, Payday 21. Repeat: You are ordered to shoot down Israeli F-16. Acknowledge.
Payday 21: In your dreams, pal.
Controller: Payday 21, that's a DIRECT ORDER!
Payday 21: Give your order to the girl at McDonalds. I'm RTB. You come fly this puppy and shoot down one of our allies!!!
Brzezinski: now there's a plane he'd shoot down.

I think that one of the main reasons that so many on the left and right are against the President's health care proposal (well, technically, it's Congress' bill, but Obama says it's his, so whatever) is that Obama keeps making preposterous claims about his plan. These claims are just so stupid that we all recognize b.s. when we hear it. And we're not buying it.
Take the fervor over Rep Joe Wilson's outburst ("You Lie!"). Obama continues his idiotic claim (yep, his lie) that under his plan, illegal aliens will not be covered or be able to get free health care. THIS STATEMENT IS A LIE! The current bill in Congress does specifically say that illegals are not covered. BUT -- there are no provisions in the bill that require health care providers to establish whether or not the person claiming benefits is legally entitled to them. So even though the left points out there is wording in the bill denying coverage to illegals, it's a hollow requirement.
We have E-Verify for employers to verify that potential workers are here legally. Why not add a provision that says folks must prove that they are legal residents or legal aliens to get insurance coverage from (ugh) the government?
Look -- we have laws that say the drinking age is 21. And we have laws that say the bar or the liquor store must check an ID card to make sure the drinker is of legal age. What's so freaking hard about requiring proof of citizenship or legal residency status?
I'll tell you what's so hard -- the hard left doesn't want it! They want to give universal health care to all who have the sniffles...no matter how they got into this country. I call "bullshit" on this. Prove you're legal, and get coverage.
We can offer health care to the 10 million or so who can't afford it without screwing up the system for the rest of us.
My advice to Congress: Get it done the simple way -- or you're going to find yourself out on your backsides come 2010.

Then check out the faces of the Muslim terrorist sympathisers in Harrow (UK).
Notice anything different about these two groups? Take your time.
Do you see anyone in DC who is trying to cover their face with a scarf?
For all of the idiocy of Obama and his cronies, we still have rights in this country. That includes the right to peaceably assemble and express our opinions without fear of the government arresting us or torturing us. I'm not saying that the UK government would arrest or torture these Islamic wackos. These protesters fear their own kind -- sharia-loving morons who will kill them if they express support for the west, say, or they worry about being identified and investigated (rightly) by the police and MI-5 if they show their faces during pro-Islamic violence rallies.
Anyway, we're free to scream at our government without fear of reprisal. Most of the world does not enjoy the freedoms that we take for granted. This is why you should always thank a soldier in the airport.
Think about these pictures and your freedoms the next time a lefty weirdo neighbor tells you Bush = Hitler or Cheney believes in torture.

Honestly...this guy is pissed-off. There are a lot of things that the President of the United States should be mad about:
1. Osama bin Laden is still on the loose. You remember him...killed 3,000 folks 8 years ago.
2. Soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines are being killed in Afghanistan and Iraq.
3. Iran is working on a nuclear weapon; North Korea already has a few.
4. We dropped the charges against the USS Cole killer.
5. Unemployment in the US is 9.7% and will probably go higher.
6. The budget deficit is $1.3 trillion this year alone -- and will go higher.
7. 1 to 2 million people marched on Washington, D.C. today demanding smaller government -- while Obama scurried off to Minnesota so he wouldn't have to face us -- the citizens, the angry mob, the astroturfers.
8. His aunt may be deported.
9. His dog is a pansy.
Wow...there is a lot to be pissed off about.
But here is what he spouted off about today in Minneapolis -- the fact that Americans don't want a new government program that will wipe out health care as we know it in America. Are you freaking kidding me?
But know this: I will not waste time with those who have made the calculation that it’s better politics to kill this plan than improve it. I will not stand by while the special interests use the same old tactics to keep things exactly the way they are. If you misrepresent what’s in the plan, we will call you out. And I will not accept the status quo as a solution. Not this time. Not now.
We are closer to reform than we have ever been. But this is the hard part. This is when the special interests and the insurance companies and the folks who want to kill reform fight back with everything they’ve got. This is when they spread all kinds of rumors to scare and intimidate the American people. This is what they always do.
Seriously...we have our military at risk every day, Iran is getting the bomb, North Korea's whack-job has one...and he's pissing and moaning about health care? HEALTH CARE? The thing that 90% of folks in the US are satisfied with?
And he won't do these things? What about us? What about what we want? The poor, dumb working folks out here in flyover country? I won't do squat that he wants. As I said yesterday, Mr. President, you can go straight to hell.
This guy needs an attitude adjustment. And not just a V-8.
I really love the fact that Rep Joe Wilson stood up and called Obama out on his lies. And he was a class act as he apologized immediately afterward. Look, we've all blurted out something in the heat of the moment and regretted it later. We don't regret the substance of what we said; we regret that we said it in an inappropriate way or place. Been there, done that.
I recall a day of football practice in college...the coach announced that we were all going to run double the normal number of wind sprints because we'd been lazy. I turned to the guy next to me and said, "Sh*t a brick!". Wouldn't you know it...there was dead silence as soon as I started talking. So my whispered expletive was heard by all. We had to run double the double number because of my big mouth.
Well, Obama is in the same place. He just can't break out of his same bullshit message. And regular Americans are having nothing of it. Neither, it seems, is the Congressional Budget Office (CBO).
I love political cartoons. I wish I was as clever as those who think them up.

He said nothing new; he took shots at everyone who disagrees with him (like ME); he complained that the cable news industry was spreading lies. Blah blah blah. Nothing new here; move along. He told so many whoppers that the whole speech became a lie.
I call BULLSHIT on his entire office. He can go straight to hell.
A woman had a premature baby in England, and medics refused to provide any medical attention for the baby, who died:
The doctors and nurses should go to jail, and the head of the hospital should join them.
Medics allegedly told her that they would have tried to save the baby if he had been born two days later, at 22 weeks.
In fact, the medical guidelines for Health Service hospitals state that babies should not be given intensive care if they are born at less than 23 weeks.
The guidance, drawn up by the Nuffield Council, is not compulsory but advises doctors that medical intervention for very premature children is not in the best interests of the baby, and is not 'standard practice'.
James Paget Hospital in Norfolk refused to comment on the case but said it was not responsible for setting the guidelines relating to premature births.
A trust spokesman said: 'Like other acute hospitals, we follow national guidance from the British Association of Perinatal Medicine regarding premature births.'
This is why we are very concerned in the US about "death panels". We are concerned that we will not receive any care at all, not just that the quality of care will go down. Even Obama said we should get a pill instead of having surgery. We see this happening elsewhere under a public health plan, and we want no part of it.
Why does the left not understand this simple truth?
(Oh, they understand it alright. They just don't let things like "facts" stand in their way.)
I don't care if Obama offers me a lifetime of never paying taxes again: I will not support nor will I submit to his "public option". He can kiss my ass.

I believe that Israel is our best ally (hell, our only real ally) in the Middle East. Say what you want about Bahrain, Qatar, etc. They are all nice enough. But Israel is a democracy, and we owe them our support. Of all the foreign aid that we send abroad each year, we get more for our bucks with our Israeli friends.
So, naturally, Obama tries to piss them off by demanding that they stop building settlements. Not asking -- oh no. The Anointed One never asks. All to appease the freaking Palestinian terrorists, don't ya know.
This story about Barak (that's Ehud, not our Prez) ok'ing new construction warms my heart.
Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak approved the building of 455 housing units in the West Bank, defying U.S. demands for a freeze on settlement construction.By the way, a great lesson we could learn from Israel is the wall. Israel has built a security wall on the West Bank, and it works. We should put one on our border with Mexico.

I thought I'd give you the "behind the scenes" look at what ole Commie Van was really thinking as he drafted his resignation letter. Here's the quote of his letter, along with what I'll bet he wanted to say.
Why don't people talk plainly any more?
"I am resigning (I quit, dammit) my post at the Council on Environmental Quality, effective today (lessee...is today Saturday or Sunday? I want this to go out after the deadlines for the newspapers. The last thing I want to see on the front page of the Sunday NY Times is "Commie Resigned to his Fate").
On the eve of historic fights for health care (you thought HillaryCare was a fight? I was gonna show you a real fight...) and clean energy (yeah, like that's gonna happen), opponents of reform have mounted a vicious smear campaign against me (waaaaa...they even...waaaaa...quoted me!). They are using lies and distortions (and...waaaaa...FACTS!) to distract and divide (ok, what's 37 divided by 12...oh never mind...I can't divide anyway, so they might as well do it).
I have been inundated (last time I was in a date like this was 1975) with calls - from across the political spectrum (even Bob Beckel backstabbed me!) - urging me to "stay and fight." (or was it get on the next flight?)
But I came here to fight for others, not for myself (I know that's right...I got beaten up when I was a kid. Now I was gonna have a big ole budget to fight bullies with!). I cannot in good conscience (if I had one) ask my colleagues (those a**holes) to expend precious time and energy defending or explaining my past (hell -- I can't even 'splain it). We need all hands on deck, fighting for the future (I'm enlisting in the Navy, so I thought I'd try out that metaphor -- what for? I don't know...3rd base).
It has been a great honor to serve my country (and make that big salary) and my President (who even let me fly on Air Force One!) in this capacity. I thank everyone who has offered support and encouragement (I'll buy that one guy a beer...maybe Henry Gates and that cop will join me). I am proud to have been able to make a contribution to the clean energy future (by farting away my chance to serve). I will continue to do so (serve, that is, not fart), in the months and years ahead." (And I'm going to Rev Wrights church service now. I want to learn more cuss words than a-hole.)

Oh, and by the way...kudos to Glenn Beck for bringing this out into the open. About 10pm CDT tonight I went out to CNN.com, Time.com, and MSNBC.com, and there was not a word on any of those sites about Jones that I could find. I'll bet this resignation will catch a lot of the left off-guard -- they didn't see it coming because it wasn't being covered in the MSM. You really had to be paying attention to Fox and the conservative blogs to hear or read anything about it.
Next up: Nancy Pelosi will step down from the Speaker's post. Something will "trigger" it.

I went onto Herb's website and signed up so that I would be notified when or if he'd have the cojones to hold a townhall meeting here in SE Wisconsin. I received no email notice, nor did he advertise a meeting or put his schedule up on his website. I had to read about it in the paper the day after the meeting. Lily-livered liberal.
So I went up on his website and clicked on "contact Senator Kohl". Here's what I wrote:
You sorry piece of horse manure. I signed up on your website to be notified when you were going to be here for a Townhall meeting. The date was not posted on your website, nor was I notified via email. Imagine my surprise when I had to read about it in the local paper.I left my name, address, phone number, and email address.
You are a coward who will not face your constituency. I loath you and will do everything in my power to let all my friends know not to support your re-election.
I want you to retire and go on the health care bill you are trying to shove down our throats.

He told me he supported universal care, but was concerned about the price of a public option. I asked him if he'd vote for it, and he said yes. I told him that's exactly why I can't support him. We shook hands, said "see you at the Veteran's Day memorial", and off he went.
Oh, yeah. I gave him one of these. He said "good for you".
