We are going to laugh at this fad 20 years from now, right?

This "green" product brings the movement form ridiculous to absurd.

Green funerals make for eco-exits

And check this out: Natural Death Centre, where they ask you, "How green is your life."

Obama is a politician in denial (video)

Here is Obama today in Pennsylvania, defending his demeaning put-down of blue collar America. Here is a politician who has already gotten away with so much, always escaping unscathed. Watch this video and you'll see someone in denial (yet sub-consciously, it is clear he knows he is in trouble). He is trying to spin his blunder like it is nothing, only he comes across as an insecure bully who knows he is cornered (even his laughs, and the crowd's laughs, are strange and pleading).

Look at this guy. There is no way he is going to be the next president. Even though I doubt Hillary catches him, especially after Bosnia-gate, it doesn't matter; you are looking at McGovern 2008.

8 Year Old Asks for Divorce

At Weasel Zippers: 8 Year-old Girl Seeks Divorce From Husband.....
SANA’A, April 9 - An eight-year-old girl decided last week to go the Sana’a West Court to prosecute her father, who forced her to marry a 30-year-old man.

Nojoud Muhammed Nasser arrived at court by herself on Wednesday, April 2, looking for a judge to handle her case against her father, Muhammed Nasser, who forced her two months ago to marry Faez Ali Thamer, a man 22 years her senior. The child also asked for a divorce, accusing her husband of sexual and domestic abuse.

Obama: Merely Changing the Subject

Investor's Business Daily understands that Obama is merely changing the subject:

But Obama's recent troubles, which this much-hyped speech was supposed to put past him, are not about race relations. They're about one churchman who happens to be black, whose views from the pulpit are repugnant and from whom Obama doesn't seem to have the guts to distance himself.


The supposed divide between black and white is not the issue here; Obama's longtime association with Jeremiah Wright is.

Obama is a cynical pragmatist

The Rev. Jeremiah Wright affair and his "oops, you got me" response speech has only confirmed the obvious. Obama is a typical cynical politician. In his case, he needed credibility in South Chicago so he partnered with the people who could buy him influence (Wright and Rezko).

Obama doesn't believe in Wright's foolishness because he doesn't believe in anything. His prime motivation is the ability to exercise power.

Obama doesn't care to sooth race relations. He seeks to exploit them, evidenced by his proposals for more socialism and more affirmative action.

Obama would happily throw Jeremiah Wright under the bus if it meant more power. His problem now is how to delicately do just that without looking like a hypocrite and damaging his credibility as a uniter. He must now attempt to present himself as a politician unique in American history, someone who doesn't just feel your pain, but feels everyone's pain.

It is Getting Worse -- Obama's Hollywood Cult has Officially Jumped the Shark

Found at Althouse.

You have to see this video to believe it -- Yes We Can by Will.I.Am was embarrassingly bad. Who knew it was possible, but this one puts it to shame. I'm smiling ear-to-ear. These fools are making it too easy. If they can top this one, I'll be shocked.

Is Will.I.Am working for Karl Rove or something? Wow...

The more I know, the more I doubt

Oops - Global Warming Paradox at the NY Times Science Blog.

If only the masses could understand the science of global warming, they’d be alarmed, right? Wrong, according to the surprising results of a survey of Americans published in the journal Risk Analysis by researchers at Texas A&M University.

After asking a national sample of more than 1,000 Americans how much they knew about global warming and how they felt about it, the researchers report that respondents who are better-informed about global warming “both feel less personally responsible for global warming, and also show less concern for global warming.” Another unexpected result: “Respondents who showed a great deal of confidence that scientists understand global warming and climate change showed significantly less concern for the risks of global warming than did those who have lower trust in scientists.”

To know Obama, look to the women in his life

I am throughly impressed with some of the articles recently written identifying the Obama phenomenon for the fraud it is, in beautiful plain English.

Someone writing under the pseudonym 'Spengler' for the Asia Times writes Obama's women reveal his secret. This is without a doubt, a must read. Spengler tells you to look to Obama’s mom and wife for clues to his real motivations. Here are some choice quotes:

"Cherchez la femme," advised Alexander Dumas in: "When you want to uncover an unspecified secret, look for the woman." In the case of Barack Obama, we have two: his late mother, the went-native anthropologist Ann Dunham, and his rancorous wife Michelle. Obama's women reveal his secret: he hates America


Obama profiles Americans the way anthropologists interact with primitive peoples. He holds his own view in reserve and emphatically draws out the feelings of others; that is how friends and colleagues describe his modus operandi since his days at the Harvard Law Review, through his years as a community activist in Chicago, and in national politics. Anthropologists, though, proceed from resentment against the devouring culture of America and sympathy with the endangered cultures of the primitive world. Obama inverts the anthropological model: he applies the tools of cultural manipulation out of resentment against America.


There is nothing mysterious about Obama's methods. "A demagogue tries to sound as stupid as his audience so that they will think they are as clever as he is," wrote Karl Krauss. Americans are the world's biggest suckers, and laugh at this weakness in their popular culture.

There is so much more in this one. Please read it all.

Thomas Sowell: Dangerous demagoguery

Another must read (from a long line of must reads) from Thomas Sowell.
"Many people find it thrilling that the mantra of "change" is ringing out across the land during this election year. But let's do what the politicians hope that we will never do — stop and think."

Oh, I love Thomas Sowell. I'm not sure I've ever heard him say something I've disagreed with.

Listen to him in 1980 addressing the Fairmount Conference in San Francisco (still so prescient today):

Make sure and buy his memoir, A Man of Letters

Religous nut-job of the day (The Obama Messiah Watch Continues)

I mean it -- I hope to see a lot more of this ridiculousness over the next few months. People like this just might convince enough people to steer clear from the Messiah. Watch this 60's throwback...laugh at her...and then weep for her and her cause.

BTW -- there is a new Facebook group dedicated to Obama as Messiah. Join it if you can.

Laughing at the Obama cultists

It is very encouraging to see so many people recognizing and starting to make fun of the Obama cult. This is the greatest attempt thus far:
Is Barack Obama the Messiah
h/t: instapundit

Read the entire site for the alternating chills and laughs.

It is funny to see the so-called secular leftists embracing religion so fervently. It pretty much blows a hole in Bill O'Reilly's thesis - the secular left was never secular.

Obama is a Messiah for the 21st century

Props to Jake Tapper at ABC for being brave enough to call Obama's campaign for what it really is -- a religion. Every time I see an Obama self-lauding campaign speech in which he says nothing except for how great the Obama movement is, I get chills in the same way I would if I was watching a fire and brimstone Southern Baptist stumping on a pulpit before millions of true believers. Get to someone's soul and you control their brain.

He quotes one Obama supporter who is starting to get freaked out:
Describing various encounters with Obama supporters, she writes, "Excuse me, but this sounds more like a cult than a political campaign. The language used here is the language of evangelical Christianity – the Obama volunteers speak of 'coming to Obama' in the same way born-again Christians talk about 'coming to Jesus.'

Tapper also refers to a Joe Klein piece titled "Inspiration vs. Substance":
"That is not just maddeningly vague but also disingenuous: the campaign is entirely about Obama and his ability to inspire. Rather than focusing on any specific issue or cause — other than an amorphous desire for change — the message is becoming dangerously self-referential. The Obama campaign all too often is about how wonderful the Obama campaign is. “

I've noted many times how empty Obama's rhetoric actually is. Even the NY Times is under his spell. I must say it now -- this man is dangerous.

Update: Check out this image direct from Obama's homepage!!!!

Van Jones -- Another Crook hanging around Davos


Hey Van -- how can we make the world a better place?
"Green collar jobs for 'working people'"

"Green pathways out of poverty"

"A green wave that can lift all boats"

"We need to connect the people who most need work with the work that most needs to be done."

Listen to him --- listen to the lack of conviction in his voice -- the tepidness of his message. He has no clue what the words coming out his mouth actually mean and he knows it.

Wow - Bono is annoying

Listen to this "rock star."

Bono's Remarks at the National Prayer Breakfast:
Please join me in praying that I don't say something we'll all regret.

That was for the FCC.

If you're wondering what I'm doing here, at a prayer breakfast, well, so am I. I'm certainly not here as a man of the cloth, unless that cloth is leather. It's certainly not because I'm a rock star. Which leaves one possible explanation: I'm here because I've got a messianic complex.

Yes, it's true. And for anyone who knows me, it's hardly a revelation.

Well, I'm the first to admit that there's something unnatural… something unseemly… about rock stars mounting the pulpit and preaching at presidents, and then disappearing to their villas in the South of France. Talk about a fish out of water.
It was weird enough when Jesse Helms showed up at a U2 concert… but this is really weird, isn't it?

Look at this empty sack of shit talking to a webcam in Davos. He says absolutely nothing in the most sanctimonious way possible. Nothing.

"Hello, my name is Bono and I'm a rock star....sort of."

While Bono's shtick is grating on the senses, I do think the fat guy chomping on his lunch in the background is a funny counter-point.

William J. Cole gets paid to write this shit

Take a look: World Captivated by US Presidential Race

Who the hell is this guy, William J. Cole of the Associated Press? Isn't this more like a blog post that belongs on Daily Kos?

Can we re-title this "William J. Cole loves Obama," please? This is not news -- it is so poorly written, it is almost not even pretending to be news. Every paragraph stinks. Every one of them.

"The idea since the country's founding—'You can't become president if you're not a white man'—has already been destroyed," the Mainichi newspaper said in an editorial.

"Nobody in Europe ever took Bill Clinton's problems in office seriously," said Patrick Dunleavy, a political scientist at the London School of Economics. "Nobody could ever understand why Americans were so upset. Bill Clinton was always a fantastic presence in Europe."

"People all around the world are pretty worried," he said. "They want a president who will restore a kind of U.S. legitimacy in the world."

Begging Tiger Woods to be a Democrat

This has been going on for years. Begging, pleading...

Today's blubbering attempt: Woods impressed by Barack Obama, via Drudge.

Tiger Woods is the consumate sports professional. He knows that, at the end of the day, he alone is responsible for the choices he makes.

See Tiger's response to the idiotic noose cover on Golfweek magazine:
"It was unfortunate," Woods said in a statement Monday. "Kelly and I did speak. There was no ill intent. She regrets saying it. In my eyes it's all said and done."

Something truly sick

The drug-store chain CVS wants to open a simple clinic service in their existing locations to assist people with easy-to-treat illnesses (such as sore throats). These clinics can help take the burden off of the existing health care infrastructure and in many instances significantly lower the cost of care, ultimately benefiting lower income families most. Of course, the city of Boston wants to outlaw this. Menino decries clinics in retailers
"Limited service medical clinics run by merchants in for-profit corporations will seriously compromise quality of care and hygiene. Allowing retailers to make money off of sick people is wrong."

That last sentence pretty much sums up the statist's view of the world.

Glenn Reynolds asks:
"Is it too cynical to suspect that the real opposition stems from fears that they will make national healthcare seem less urgent?"

The government doesn't like competition and they aren't afraid to stifle it. Upward mobility for this core-constituency is bad for business of expanding government, so outfits such as Wal-Mart have to be fought every step of the way.
