common ground

abortion doc killed in church.

Flashback to Obama's commencement address at Notre Dame on May 17th. Obama told the story of receiving a letter from a Christian doctor (Not to be redundantly repetitive here, but Christian = pro-life. Sad that this caveat is needed) concerned with the rhetoric from his campaign staff. He quoted this doctor as stating, "I do not ask at this point that you oppose abortion, only that you speak about this issue in fair-minded words."

Obama then goes on to say he wrote the doctor back and promised to "extend the same presumption of good faith... to those who may not think precisely like we do... that's when we discover at least the possibility of common ground."

His plea for "common ground" on abortion was ridiculous then, and it is ridiculous now. Let me demonstrate by taking a few more excerpts from this lame @$$ speech and swap out a few words and replace them with references to the murder of Doctor Mengele George Tiller:

"...That's when we begin to say, maybe we won't agree on abortion killing mass murderers, but we can still agree that this heart-wrenching decision for any woman isby this 51-year-old suspect was not made casually, it has both moral and spiritual dimensions.

So let us work together to reduce the number of women seeking abortions shootings of abortionist doctors, let's reduce unintended pregnancies church slayings. (Applause.)... Let's honor the conscience of those who (dis)agree with abortion killing this so-called doctor... (Applause.)... Each side will continue to make its case to the public with passion and conviction. But surely we can do so without reducing those with differing views to caricature."


Did that make you cringe? It was no more outrageous than his un"doctored" remarks.

Of course, HuffingGluePost readers wouldn't sink to caricature by impugning all pro-lifers for this lone gunman's actions, would they?

Leftwing whacko Comments:
* Let's compromise: Let's ban late term abortions and Republicans.

* We need to rally around this, leverage it to finally rid ourselves of the right wing.

* Do Republicans still think it's a good idea to have these whackos in the GOP?

* Note to self: Do not try to engage in intelligent dialog with the christian right.

* This is blatant act of domestic terrorism by the Christian Taliban.

* It is time to end the Religious Right and conservatives in general. They are hate-breeders one and all. When will we wake up to the dangers of allowing the Republican party to continue its existence?


Where do I stand? Right along side Randall Terry on this one:
Randall Terry, founder of Operation Rescue states, "George Tiller was a mass-murderer. We grieve for him that he did not have time to properly prepare his soul to face God. I am more concerned that the Obama Administration will use Tiller's killing to intimidate pro-lifers into surrendering our most effective rhetoric and actions. Abortion is still murder. And we still must call abortion by its proper name; murder.

"Those men and women who slaughter the unborn are murderers according to the Law of God. We must continue to expose them in our communities and peacefully protest them at their offices and homes, and yes, even their churches."
OBAMA: "...However profound our differences as Americans over difficult issues such as abortion, they cannot be resolved by heinous acts of violence."

What is ABORTION, mister president, if not heinous acts of violence?

Prediction: Detroit Red Wings in Four!

I'm breaking my paranoid Detroit Red Wings hockey jinx rule and going out on a a limb here to state my prediction on the eve of the Stanley Cup Finals 2009. Wings in four. There, I said it. Did it make you cringe Shang? Not only that, I am going to leave the 9" black and white dark and treat myself to the game on the large cinemaview LCD in the family room. I am going to do so with an arrogant confidence that nothing can derail my beloved Wings in their quest for their fifth Cup in the last 12 years, and their second back-to-back in that string.

Why tempt fate, DaBlade? Your Red Wings are on a roll for cryin' out loud! Didn't they sweep the Columbus Blue Jackets, handle a very talented and physical Anaheim team in 7 games, and dominate the Chicago Black Hawks in 5 games for the conference championship?

Exactly. They have lost 5 out of their last 16 games and I find this dismal performance simply unacceptable. Besides, this is a rematch with that same team they slapped around last year to lift the Cup. A team that is named after pudgy flightless water fowl no less. A fitting mascot for the likes of Cindy Crosby. Maybe the Mule will remove his mouth guard if he misbehaves, as he did with Kane in the last series.



Besides, any city that is proud of this...

The salad and fries are included ON the sandwich? I'm sorry, that's just lazy. Real men eat...

Two Lafayette coney islands. This platter is a tasty cardiological disaster and the pride of the city. Obama may have wrestled control of GM, but just let the POTUS POSSEE near this cherished establishment and you will see true anarchy in the streets. Tiananmen revisited. My chiseled frame would single-handedly stop a tank intent on moving on this coney dog heaven.

Bring it on! A win today and tomorrow, then it's two pickets to tittsburgh for the sweep!

POTUS POSSEE (and other nonsense)

Drew Peterson introduces his "new standup comedy act" via collect call to a radio show. He suggests they hold a "Win a Conjugal Visit with Drew" contest.
Hey girls, he is only accused of murdering wives number three and four, so your odds aren't impossible. Just laugh at his jokes and everything will be OK.

I'd be wary of "open Mike" night at the cell block if it were me. Just sayin'...



"I got a lot of buddies willing to wash my back in the shower, what's that all about?" Ba dum bum *rimshot*

"The food's different. Now I know why there are seatbelts on the toilets." Ba dum bum *rimshot*

"To be falsely accused of a homicide that didn't happen - twice now (chuckly chuckle)"... Ba dum bum *rimshot*

"I really miss my grooming aids like being able to trim my mustache and nose hairs, but then I don't want to be particularly attractive in this place so..." *crickets*

Thank you! I'll be here all week. Actually, I'll be here for the rest of my pathetic life! Tip your waitress, who happens to be Andy Defresne in drag tonight. Try the veal. Get busy livin' or get busy dying. YOu've been a great audience goodnight everybody.


Actually ladies, having to laugh at this guy greatly diminishes your odds.

Hmmmmm

Laughing hysterically at a very unfunny person. Kinda reminds me of the treatment White House press secretary Robert Gibbs receives from his adoring leftwing reporter hacks at the briefings. He is the flesh and blood equivalent of Obama's teleprompter, so why wouldn't they love him? BTW, Isn't his "Gimmee the phone" bit a Chris Rock routine?

Just like Peterson, I'm sure he could get any number of them to wash his back after the breifing. Or should I say "DEbriefing".

Here is today's understatement of the day...
"It's possible that reporters just think Gibbs is much funnier than the Bush people," Graham (for Media Research Center) said. "But I think this is another subliminal sign that reporters are much more comfortable with a spokesman that represents the hope and change they voted for."

For my entertainment dollar, I'd sit through a Drew Peterson standup while being waterboarded before I'd listen to this guy.

Hmmmmm

* When I first saw the picture of the black female reporter being dragged away by POTUS POSSEE from Air Force One on Drudge, I immediately assumed it was Oprah. "Michelle has finally had enough of that Winfrey groupie," I thought. (actually, I just wanted to say "POTUS POSSEE".) POTUS POSSEE, POTUS POSSEE, POTUS POSSEE. After all, the "Fresh Prince" needs to have his peeps looking out dontcha know.

Bogus conversations in my fertile mind

Obama's supreme court nominee Sonia Sotomayor on judicial prudence:
I would hope that a wise Latina woman with the richness of her experiences would more often than not reach a better conclusion than a white male who hasn't lived that life."

Gingrich: WTF?

Sotomayor: I was talking about Joe Biden there. C'mon now. Everybody knows he is a few hair plugs short of a full pate. The "JOBS is a 3 letter word" guy. I was being kind with the "wise Latina women" comment. I could have said Joe didn't have the intellectual range of a transgenic monkey.

Biden: What's a cross-dressing ape got ta do with it? One cross-species wardrobe exchange during my college days and now ol' Champ is labeled?

Gingrich: A racist Latina woman should have to withdraw.

Robert Gibbs: Careful! Measure those words carefully!
Ross Perot: Measure twice, cut once. Don't piss off those mexicanos Newt, or all you'll hear is a great sucking sound...
Bill Clinton: I didn't know that Monica was a salsa chick, but she knows her way around a Cuban cigar.

Janet Murguía, president of La Raza.“If there is the perception that somehow she (Sotomayor) is being treated unfairly or they are distorting her record or comments, I think there will be a backlash in the Latino community... There could be great resentment within the Latino community if it is seen somehow that she is not being treated with the respect due to a Supreme Court nominee.”

Robert Gibbs: Careful!

Clark Griswold: "Come on, honey. We can't close our eyes to the plight of the city! Kids, you noticing all this plight?" "Roll 'em up!" "Excuse me, holmes?"


Julianne Malveaux, African-American economist and president of Bennett College, made headlines on November 4, 1994, when she said this of Supreme Court Justice Thomas: "I hope his wife feeds him lots of eggs and butter and he dies early like many black men do, of heart disease."

and what does Malveaux think of Obama's latest nomination to the court?

Malveaux: I hope she eats A healthy, delicious and festive Latino menu specific for diabetics and stays healthy through the triangle of proper foods, exercise and medication. I hope she doesn't die early from beef tacos, wet burritos, or a late night knife fight like many overweight Latinos do.

Obama takes a closer look at his honorary Notre Dame law degree


Original artwork from my ND son who whipped this up on a drawing pad connected to his laptop. (I screwed up the cut and paste job, as his comic had the 4 panels in a row - which would not have fit on this blog). So in conclusion, he is an artist, a musician (guitar, cello, awesome vocals), a classroom prodigy, and a stud. He also doesn't like me bashing his school, although he never says so. He was arguing via Facebook chat with an old high school buddy the other day, talking out loud as he was hitting his keyboard keys with authority. "I dare anyone to sit in a mass on any given Sunday at my dorm and try to tell me Notre Dame isn't Catholic!"

He knows it's an imperfect institution, but is very protective of what's good about "her". I wouldn't want it any other way. After all, It's like-minded young people like my son who ultimately will make the necessary changes (not some old guy bitching on his blog every day :)

Bubble Domescope

Pope Benedict races to the Bubble Domescope in his retofitted Popemobile in an attempt to fix it's numerous flaws. Hubble astronauts from the shuttle Atlantis thought they had it rough dodging space junk. It is nothing compared to the danger of the low orbit the Bubble finds itself in.

Notre Dame and the Church need a coup of the faithful

My wife called me on my cell as she was leaving work yesterday, and she was livid. "You won't believe the article (my boss) gave me at work today," she said. Mrs. DaBlade explained that when she read the first sentence and realized it was another "pro Obama at Notre Dame" piece, her blood pressure spiked. She immediately looked up at her boss and told him, "we can discuss this if you'd like." He declined, simply telling her that he just wanted her to read it. "If you gave me an article, I'd read it," he told her as he walked away from her desk.

This is not the first time my wife has become extremely upset after being attacked for her Catholic faith while at work. She is surrounded by big government liberals in love with everything Obama, and she is constantly needled by some for her defense of the church. From a particularly obnoxious A@@hole janitor, all the way up to the principal. She really tries to stay away from discussing politics, but they are constantly in her face and "poking sticks" at her for her Catholic conservative beliefs.

What makes this so sad is that she doesn't work at a Planned Parenthood abortion mill. She works in the administration office at the local Catholic High School.

Just like what has happened at Notre Dame - the teachers, staff and administration at my catholic alma-mater has become infiltrated, diluted and deluded with leftist liberals holding beliefs anathema to the church. Catholiscm For Dummies. It makes us continually question why we actually pay for this.

The article that steemed her?
He Came, He Spoke, He Conquered

I especially loved the subtitle: THIS CATHOLIC'S (sic) VIEW. The "(sic)" is all mine. I assume it meant to say "secular" or "humanist" or "godless lib".

Don't waste your time reading the thing unless you're really bored (why else would you be here?). It's the same old drivel you've read elsewhere praising Obama for his Notre Dame speech. Somehow this author found Obama's speech "to be respectful of Catholic views." *gag* He quotes Obama crediting his community organizing in Chicago that brought him to Christ. *hurl* Here I thought that is was Chicago community organizing where Obama learned his brutal and ruthless political smear tactics. His community organizing skills inspired Bill Clinton to say that Obama had the "political instincts of a Chicago thug."
Sounding more like a preacher than a politician, he asked that we extend the "presumption of good faith" to those who disagree with us. "Because when we do that--when we open our hearts and our minds to those who may not think like we do or believe what we do--that's when we discover at least the possibility of common ground." It is clear where he thinks this common ground can be on abortion, which he declared has "both moral and spiritual dimensions."
*steamy pile of excrement*

There is no "common ground" on abortion. There is only victory or defeat, and life is not winning. Obama's silver-forked-tongue rhetorical flourish espousing his desire to "reduce the number of abortions" is a thinly veiled attempt to rope-a-dope namby pamby CASINOs (Catholics As Stated In Name Only) like the ones at Notre Dame.

And like this author, who says: "...can we not all work together to reduce the number of abortions? The political reality is that abortion is not going to be made illegal anytime soon. Simply as an intermediate strategy pro-life people should join with Obama in doing everything possible to reduce the number of abortions. Not to do so is to put politics above the life of the unborn."

UN... FREAKIN'... BELIEVABLE! Yep, he said it. To not support Obama is to "put politics above the life of the unborn".

And my wife's boss gave her this presumably to support his position.

Blah, blah, blah, the rest of the article talks about abortion just being another issue on the same level as the economy and climate change. Moral equivalence is given between the purposeful desecration of God's Love through the use of surgical knives on "unwanted tissue masses" and "saving "God's creation from a changing climate."

Not where I come from.

disengage your external inertial dampeners

Dear Blog,
Today I took a morning cyber-science fiction journey in my mind after reading a Discover Magazine article titled, Will We Ever Travel Faster Than Light, a la Star Trek? For some reason I thought of the Steven Wright joke about headlights on a spaceship. This led to scientist Carl Sagan and comedian Steven Wright bellied up to a bar drinking beer and discussing time travel. Yes I know Sagan died in 1996, but we're talking time travel after all. I love the idea of these two, with their individual and distinct voices, in a buddy picture. Smart and Smarter? It is a few hours of my life that I will never get back... Or will I?

So please disengage your external inertial dampeners. Oh, and Maureen Dowd states that the following attributed quotes are mostly theirs, not hers.


SCENE: Wright and Sagan are gripping a beer while slouching on their bar stools. The ball game is on the TV set mounted next to the mirrored shelving of colorful bottles, while the bald barkeep is wiping down the countertop with a towel and listening to the drunks on the stools.
Carl Sagan: Who are we? We find that we live on an insignificant planet of a humdrum star lost in a galaxy tucked away in some forgotten corner of a universe in which there are far more galaxies than people.

Steven Wright: If you are in a spaceship that is traveling at the speed of light, and you turn on the headlights, does anything happen?"

Carl Sagan: The most bizarre aspect of traveling near the speed of light is that time slows down.

Steven Wright: I didn't know it then, but looking back, in hindsight, I realize that when I was younger I could see into the future. Now I'm getting all my premonitions as flashbacks!

Carl Sagan: All clocks, mechanical and biological, tick more slowly near the speed of light. Point of fact, if one were to break the light speed barrier, they theoretically could travel backwards in time! I don't have to tell you about the dangers of the grandfather paradox!

Steven Wright: My grandfather gave me a watch. It doesn't have any hands or numbers. He says it's very accurate. I asked him what time it was. You can guess what he told me.

Carl Sagan: If we could travel at the speed of light, we would age more slowly than those we left behind.

Steven Wright: Four years ago... No, it was yesterday...

Carl Sagan: What do you make of Stephen Hawking's chronological protection conjecture, which holds that the laws of physics disallow time machines?

Steven Wright: Right now I'm having amnesia and deja-vu at the same time. I think I've forgotten this before.

Carl Sagan: Finally! Here comes Al Einstein and Bill Nye, the Science Guy. What took you fellas so long?

Bill Nye TSG: Al just discovered that relativity theory space and time are the same thing because he keeps showing up three miles late for his meetings.

Speaking of Star Trek, did everyone happen to catch

Two Graduates from the class of 2030 sit out their Notre Dame Commencement due to the fact that they were aborted

ALTERNATE UNIVERSE - CODEPINK protests Obama's visit to Notre Dame

In the "ALTERNATE UNIVERSE" department, I ask, "What if the ultra-wacko gals from CODEPINKO finally realized the hypocrisy of their militant anti-war (especially in the defense of this country) and pro-abortion (advocating unrestricted access to taxpayer-funded abortion-on-demand).

Notre Dame's invitation to Pro-infanticide president Obama has resulted in a constant stream of demonstrators getting arrested. The latest batch of protesters in defense of human life finding themselves "cuffed and roughed" were ladies from the pro-life group CODEPINK.

The CODEPINK ladies carried a lengthy sign that read "WE WILL NOT RAISE OUR CHILDREN TO KILL ANOTHER MOTHER'S CHILD".


When asked for clarification as to the meaning of this message, the spokeslady for the group stated, "It used to mean that our children would never become soldiers in the defense of this country under any circumstances, and that we would have been 'tickled pink' if our sons instead had become gay Miss America judges who threw hissy fits at conservative babes. Now that our pyschotic out-of-control progesterone levels have been brought under control, we now realize what a horror the so-called 'pro-choice' movement really is. So when we say, 'WE WILL NOT RAISE OUR CHILDREN TO KILL ANOTHER MOTHER'S CHILD,' it refers to our refusal to allow our children to grow up to become abortion doctors in this obamanation.

Only slight changes necessary for CODEPINK to come over from the dark side.

"Arise then...women of this day! Arise, all women who have hearts! From the bosom of a devastated Earth mother and child, a voice goes up with Our own. It says: Disarm! Disarm! LIFE! LIFE!"— Julia Ward Howe, Mother's Day Proclamation, 1870 Chattering Teeth, ND Commencement Day Proclamation, 2009

This Mother's Day Commencement Day, we held our second 24-hour vigil in front of the White House Golden Dome, where we honored all mothers and women who live where war abortions are happening— where women and their babies are paying the price with their bodies, loved ones, homes, future. We wanted to recognize the price they pay and honor their courage and power, by standing with them in solidarity to not only tell their important stories but to model what women-centered community looks and acts like.

We continued our call for our troops Obama to GO come home from Afghanistan and Iraq Notre Dame so that no more mothers will suffer the unbearable grief of losing a child to these wars Godless Liberals. And with your help, we have also sent a message of sorrow, friendship and peace directly to the women suffering in occupation from the democrat party and their families.

Successful entrepreneurs told by Obama, "No franchise for you!"

PICTURED: Joe Biden asks Obama a question while lunching recently at a Ray's Burger Hell: "Mister president, are you finished with the Jesse Jackson's fried nuts?"


In other, totally unrelated news...
Between GM and Chrysler, over 2,300 U.S. auto dealers have been given a pink slip and an Obama swift kick.
The unprecedented closures under the direction of the Obama administration put an estimated 100,000 jobs at risk and showed the economic pain from the collapse of the two Detroit-based automakers.

Ripples to be felt by this? More like a riptide through the economy, sucking many many more jobs out to into the Obamasea.

RUSH: It is a crying shame what is happening to the US automobile industry. I mean, this really makes sense, doesn't it? Here, we're going to save the automobile industry. We're going to get rid of 4,000 dealerships, making the cars invisible and hard to find and we're gonna cut our advertising budgets in half, that's right. And that's really going to help us sell cars. A tragedy, is what it is.

Chattering Teeth Exclusive!
Obama now moves on to "save" the hamburger industry by forcing the closure of McDonalds, Burger King, Wendys, and all other burger joints not named Ray's Hell Burger. It is unclear what the plans are for the existing inventories of patties at these franchises. I'm sure the SOBOTUS will think of something.

So now I have to travel 10 hours to the nearest Ray's Hell Burger location for my fast food fix. What happens if I get the bag home from the 20-hour roundtrip only to discover I am missing the order of fries? That's a long drive to get my order serviced.

Skipping Commencements

Some Notre Dame Students to Forego Commencement in Protest of Obama Visit

Good for them.

I'm thankful that my son at Notre Dame doesn't graduate for a couple more years. Not just because I am in no hurry for the kids to "grow up", but because I would have hated to miss his graduation over that S.O.B. Obama giving the commencement address. Hey, I like that! The SOBOTUS. Maybe it's already been used before. The internets is a big and scary place, afterall. But if I indeed coined the phrase, everyone has my permission to use the term freely.

I remember several years ago there was a parade of some sorts down Main Street Davison, Michigan (hometown of Michael Moore, and current hometown of DaBlade). We always took the kids to the parades and secured a front curb seat for the candy. Anyway, here comes ultra-lib democrat Rose Bogardus, waving from the back seat of a car in the parade. As she approached, I simply stood up and turned my lawn chair around and sat back down with my backside to the street. After she passed, I stood and turned the chair forward again. It was clear to all (including Bogardus) what I thought of her. Maybe that's how I would handle the SOBOTUS graduation speech. Headphones and my backside.

HEY SCUMBAG!


I took these pictures on the leisurely 15 mile morning commute from our quaint suburban neighborhood to the inner city of Flint, to drop off my eighth grader at his school (St. John Vianney). As I negotiated the pot holes at a decent clip, my head on a swivel checking for any suspicious or sudden movements from the street walkers, pimps, and gang bangers, I noticed this sign. "SCUMBAG! SLOW DOWN". I looked down at my speedometer and realized with horror that I was driving 32 MPH!

I thought to myself, "Scumbag, what are you doing? Listen up Scumbag, in your haste to selfishly get to your destination without injury, you have completely ignored the traffic laws! What are you trying to do, lower the property values Scumbag!?



So with a small wave and a nod toward the home with the white picket fence with the blooming Rhododendron flower bed, I slowed down to 25 MPH, smiled and yelled out of my windown, "NO PROBLEM SCUMBAG!", content that civil communication still thrives in the town of my birth.

When you spread the universe around, it's good for everybody

DARK ENERGY, it is theorized, produces a repulsive force in space and is causing the expansion rate of the universe to accelerate by 74.2 kilometers per second per megaparsec, which coincidentally is the same expansion rate of the U.S. deficit under Obama. Weird, huh?

What is the nature of this dark energy that is causing the total expansion of everything? The Hubble telescope just may be providing the answer.

White House jazz and hip-hop poetry slam

The first ever White House Poetry Slam will be hosted by the Obama's tonight. The featured performers include James Earl Jones, who happens to possess one of my very favorite voices.

"Luke, I am your father!"

"Simba! You deliberately disobeyed me!"

"People will come, Ray. They'll come to Iowa for reasons they can't even fathom. They'll turn up your driveway, not knowing for sure why they're doing it. They'll arrive at your door, innocent as children, longing for the past."
- Field of Dreams

Sneak Preview of James Earl Jones' poetry slam


According to White House press secretary Robert Gibbs, it is generally felt that Joe Biden has the most to gain from the Alphabet poem.

Oh, and some professional slam poet named Mayda Del Valle will be there, as well as jazz pianist ELEW. It is not known if Wanda Sykes will make a repeat performance of "Roses are red, Limbaugh's kidneys are blue". There could be surprise performances by Reverend Wright, with his ever popular "G-- D--- America" slam; and possibly Iran's own Mahmood Akmadeenadude, performing "Armageddon Thru To Jew?"

Maya Angelou is always good for a mish-mash of random words that are fawned over like they hold some cryptic deeper meaning. Sort of like Obama "hisself".

Wanda Sykes named as the new Obamacare czar

The messiah-in-chief claims that Obamacare could save U.S. trillions.
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Barack Obama will aim on Monday to build support for a sweeping overhaul of the U.S. healthcare system by highlighting a drive for greater efficiency he predicts could save trillions of dollars.

Blah, blah, blah. Of course, to position ourselves to save these trillions, The One will need to "invest" a few gazillions. Sure there will be upfront costs in providing health care to the 48 million unisured healthy Americans and some 20 million illegal aliens., but we can save gobs in "streamlining paperwork". Think of it as "creating health" in the same way he has been "creating wealth".

OBAMA: When you spread the health around, it’s good for everybody.

JOE THE PLUMBER: What if I have "plumbing problems", if you know what I mean. Say the ol' "garbage disposal" is backing up, or the pipes are leaking. How is your plan gonna help me?

OBAMA: My attitude is that if health is good for folks from the bottom up, it’s gonna be good for everybody. Besides Joe, I thought the media had already given you a colonoscopy?

JOE THE PLUMBER: I was talking about my friend, Rush Limbaugh.

OBAMA: Oh, him. Well part of our savings in health care is elimination of coverage for conservatives. We'd just let his kidneys fail. Did I mention that I've named Wanda Sykes as the new Obamacare czar?

Happy Mother's Day

Hanging in the study are 3 framed 3rd grade school assignments on why "I Love My Mom" from our 3 boys. The scans didn't come out legibly, so I retyped the text below (with a few editorial comments from Dad, of course). These sentiments from her boys are on the wall next to her computer, so mom will always remember how much she is loved. For me, these assignments represent a snapshot into the distinct personalities of our boys take from when they were roughly the same age.

The first "Dear Mother" is from Adam, our oldest. He just recently completed his sophomore year at Notre Dame and is doing splendidly, so PLEASE do not call protective services after reading his work. It was all a misunderstanding. How many times does his mom have to tell him, "NO WIRE HANGERS!"?

Dear Mother,
You're the best person I know. So what if you're mad at me sometimes. You care for me when I'm sick, and you even let us go in the road with our rollerblades! But that doesn't matter now.

You taugh(t) us how to be kind by reminding us to make a card for our sick cousin. You're pretty kind yourself, if you know what I mean! Wait! One last thing. I guess I'm just saying, you're the best mom!

Love, Adam


Now comes Joe, our middle child, who will be entering his senior year of high school in the fall. Apparently, the "many reasons" are all inclusive below. There are 3 reasons, and he very precisely lists them through and including "The last reason". He was just reading this over my shoulder, so I asked him if his list of reasons had grown at all over these last 8 years. "She's appreciated," he said, in reference to some rapper named Too Pock(?) whatever. Oh, the innocence of youth...

Dear Mom.
You're nice in many ways. I Love you because you are kind. Another reason I Love you is, if I'm sick you always are there. The last reason I Love you is you are always at my hockey games. I'm glad you're my Mom.

Love, Joe


Now for Josh, our baby, who will be entering into his Freshman year of high school in the fall. Obviously, a poet, or just a kid sucking up for his next meal?

Mom,
I love your cooking. It tastes like a piece of heaven. Thank you for the putter that you got me. Thank you for letting my friends come over. I love you! I know you love me! Thanks alot for helping me with my prep books and school homework. You're the best mom in the world!
Love, Josh

I'll take the "Fetal Hand Grasp" over the "Obama Fist Bump" any day

PICTURED: Meet Samuel Armas. He is a strong and healthy 9-year-old boy who lives with his family in Georgia. His mother Julie says that Samuel has a "very strong sense of right and wrong”. Is there is something about Samuel that looks vaguely familiar?

Look closely at those hands. Chances are, you've seen one of them before in his first baby photo. Samuel was only a twenty-one week old fetus who had just had successful surgery in utero. After the surgery, but before the C-section incision was closed, little Samuel must have decided to thank his doctor. Out pops Samuel's hand and closes on the doctor's extended finger for the now famous "hand shake".

It's almost as if Samuel was saying from his mother's womb, "Samuel Armas here, good to meetcha doc! I appreciate what you've done for me here. Don't take this the wrong way, but it's getting a lttle drafty in here. Can you close me in for another 4 or 5 months? I promise, we'll catch up then over lunch. Have your people call my mother."

That Little Hand from the Womb: Samuel Armas still Reaching Out for Life
In the propaganda war which has sadly convinced many that dismembering children in the womb - or killing them through chemical strikes - is some form of “health care”; it communicates the truth by exposing the evil behind every procured abortion.
Mister president, at what point does a baby deserve human rights?

OBAMA: “Whether you’re looking at it from a theological perspective or a scientific perspective, answering that question with specificity … is above my pay grade.”

You, sir, are an Obamanation and a disgrace.

Read his "first-hand" acccount (pun intended) of the tense surgery and how he got the shot he titled "Fetal Hand Grasp". Watch the sequence of stills of this event, but have some tissue nearby. It will take your breath away.

"As we enter into Mothers Day weekend we need to remember the women who were lied to concerning what really occurred in the Abortion they had. These mothers continue to suffer and are also victims."

Deeply religious Obama just can't squeeze in one more thing and skips National Day of Prayer

Pictured: Obama and Biden order burgers at Ray's Hell Burger. The president's handlers surreptitiously placed a teleprompter on the counter cleverly disguised as a chalk board menu.


Remember when McCain Called for a debate delay during the campaign in order to focus on the blossoming financial crisis? Obama's teleprompter instructed him to rebuff McCain's request to fly back to Washington, thus winning him political points.

September 24, 2008, in response to McCain:
OBAMA: "A president is going to have to deal with more than one thing at a time."

He added: "If there were ever a time for both candidates to hold a debate before the American people about this serious challenge, it is now."

Fast forward: President Obama makes a guest appearance on the 'Tonight Show’ to chat it up with Leno and to make fun of Special Olympian bowlers. This was the first time a sitting president makes such an appearance, and so he was asked whether the television stint distracted from his work to fix the economy.

March. 19, 2009, in response to his critics:
OBAMA: "I can do more than one thing at a time and am working on a host of issues, including climate change and health care reform."

Joe "The Simple-minded democrat": See there!? Obama is a multi-tasker. Unlike Bush, President Obama can walk and chew gum at the same time! Ha Ha!

Apparently, even our SUPER HUMAN president has his limits, for while he had time to wait in line yesterday for a hamburger with his vice president (and the full regiment of enchanted press corp followers covering this huge story and taking pictures from every angle), he just can't seem to make room for God.

Obama to be prayer day no-show
"President Obama is distancing himself from the National Day of Prayer by nixing a formal early morning service and not attending a large Catholic prayer breakfast the next morning."

OBAMA: You thought the Hell burger that I had for lunch yesterday was big, well I've got a lot more on my plate today. Get this... I will be spending the day signing a proclamation honoring the day. I couldn't possibly work in one more thing. Well, I might have time to walk Bo, but that's it! Maybe a few quick smokes on the back porch, but other than that, my schedule is booked! My lack of attendance at the prayer service should in no way insinuate that I harbor utter disdain for those bitter clingers.

PRESS SEC. GIBBS: "Prayer is something the president does every day. We're doing a proclamation, which I know that many administrations in the past have done. The proclamation was Mr. Obama's choice. That's the way the president will publicly observe National Prayer Day - privately, he'll pray as he does every day."

If there were ever a time for both candidates The President to hold a debate pray with the American people during these serious challenges, it is now.

"...Privately, he'll pray as he does every day."

Kneeling on a rug facing East, no doubt.

Late Night Crickets

What's so unfunny? Political comedians and their 'hero worship' of Obama.

Not only do late night comics NOT make fun of the target-rich environment that is our teleprompter President because they share his manifesto for America, they are still stuck on Bush/Cheney. It's actually rather sad.

DISCLAIMER: This video is a representative sample of David Lettermen "performing" patently unfunny material. Nothing to see here. Maybe this is why I haven't watched him in 30-some years.


DAVID LETTERMAN: What really can you say wrong about the determined new president?

JAY LENO: Today was President Obama's 100th day in office. Isn't that amazing? Actually, when you think about it, George W. Bush was president for eight years, and he never came close to spending 100 days in the office. So, we're way ahead.

CRICKETS: Chirp, chirp, chirp.

Sit on it Jenkins!

I know I seem fixated on this whole Notre Dame/Obama controversy, but I guess it has me torque off. I'm sure I will move on to other areas of interest after he gives his little speech on May 17th.

PICTURED: Notre Dame University replaces the statue of the Virgin Mary atop the Goldem Dome with that of a large Obama Chia Head in honor of the presidents' commencement visit.



The president of Notre Dame, Father Arthur Fonzi... I mean Father Jenkins, met with an ND alumni group and defended his decision to invite Obama to speak at this year's commencement. [source]

As he has repeatedly stated publicly, he reaffirmed that The University of Notre Dame is unequivocally and firmly committed to the Catholic teachings about the sanctity of life, and the protection of life. Father Jenkins stressed that Notre Dame’s fundamental commitment is to God, but the University also has a tradition of expressing respect for the political order by offering the elected leader of our nation an honorary degree.

Did Jenx really say, "...God, but"? Fr. Jenkins got a big ol' butt (oh yeah?)

I am sick and tired of this push to water down what should be absolutes. Jeb Bush said Saturday that it's time for the Republican Party to give up its "nostalgia" for the heyday of the Reagan era. Should Catholics do likewise and give in to the desecrators of life? What do you say Jenx? Should Catholics stop being "nostalgic" for the heyday of the era of the sanctity of life? Thank goodness Jenx wasn't around for input on the Declaration of Independence, or it might go a little somethin' like this:

"...We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness... BUT I don't want to be rude, so all of these terms are negotiable."

QUESTION: "What was with the Arthur Fonzarelli reference?"
ANSWER: Just like the Fonz, Jenx just can't seem to say he was wr-wr- wr... wro... wrrrrr... WRONG! Other than that, he has more in common with Potsy throwing airballs over the backboard. Yes, it's true I loved Happy Days. Look for the Fonz stutter at 1:40ish:

LCAHL TIGERS DAY AT COMERICA PARK

[click here for more pics]

My Album








What a great day for baseball, even for us diehard hockey fans and the knowledge that our hometown hockey heros were also playing just down the road. Prior to the game, all Little Caesar Hockey Champions and their coaches took to the field for a photo op and acknowledgement from the announcer. Each youth hockey team was sporting their colors, with the Flint 94's in their home darks. The scoreboard scrolled the champion teams by division to applause. Very cool! Then it was back to our seats for the 1PM start. The Tigers (and Verlander) did their part to complete a great day at the park with a 3-1 victory over the Cleveland Indians.

As for the Wings... nevermind. I take full responsibility for their triple overtime defeat at the hand of the Ducks. Had I been home in front of my 9-inch black-and-white t.v. screen, this never would have happened. Apparently the hockey gods do not appreciate my galavanting around to other sporting events just as much as they have made it clear that my big HD widescreen LCD is OFF LIMITS during the playoffs.

Notre Dame's new motto: "Obama, Country, Notre Dame"

Notre Dame has recently redesigned the carved inscription above the side door entrance to the Basilica of the Sacred Heart. What used to read "God, Country, Notre Dame" now proudly declares "Obama, Country, Notre Dame."

Not really, but my cheap cut-and-paste job more accurately reflects the universities' and U.S. Catholics' priorities.

*******************************

PRO-LIFE ACTIVIST ARRESTED FOR PROTESTING INFANTICIDE ON THE GROUNDS OF NOTRE DAME
This, from a so-called "Catholic University?" Arrested was none other than Randall Terry, Founder of Operation Rescue. What is he guily of? Take a look.
“Stop Obama at Notre Dame”
Our Mission:
1) Stop President Obama from Speaking at Notre Dame on May 17 by peaceful protests;
2) The dismissal of Rev. Jenkins as Notre Dame President.
Our Secondary Mission:
1) If Obama decides to run again in 2012, we have politically tarred him with the blood of babies in such a way that he cannot win;
2) Create such peaceful havoc that no other Catholic University commits this treachery;
3) Recruit and train new warriors to defend Life and Truth in “on the job” training.
This is blasphemy against The One, the most high Lord Barack Hussein Obama! The state has incarcerated Mr. Terry, while at the same time Obama works to release the terrorists from Guantanamo.

*******************************

A Pew Research survey shows Catholics approve of the decision by Notre Dame to invite President Obama to give the Commencement address and receive an honorary degree by a decisive margin, 50-28. But the difference between practicing and non-practicing Catholics is profound. Practicing Catholics disapprove by a margin of 45-37 while non-practicing Catholics approve 56-23.

CAFETRIA CATHOLIC: A Catholic will pick and choose what he/she chooses to believe in in regards to the faith. Typically they will deny or mutilate revealed truths in order to justify their sinful lifestyles.

Sometimes they are even priests.
Mrs. DaBlade:
Finally a true Catholic says no to Notre Dame President Father Jenkins. Mary Ann Glendon, a pro-life Harvard Law professor and former ambassador to the Vatican, had previously accepted an invitation to receive the prestigious Laetare Medal. This award has been given to American Catholics who have illustrated the ideals of the church and enriched the heritage of humanity since 1833. An inscription on the Laetare Medal reads “Magna est veritas et prevalebit,” which means “Truth is mighty, and it shall prevail.” The hypocrisy of this award being given the same year that Barack Obama speaks at the University was not lost on Mary Ann Glendon.

Empty Souter retiring

Liberal-leaning Justice Souter to retire
Empty Souter is "left-leaning"? More like a liberal left-wing political hack.
Judicial Philosophy:
He told the committee that he was opposed to using original intent as a method of constitutional jurisprudence. Souter has described himself as an "interpretationalist," who embraces a strict construction of the Constitution's language but reads its words "in light of contemporary conditions, and is not bound by [the framers'] original meaning."
In other words, just make it up as you go. Don't weigh yourself down with what the framers' meant, decide the case before you based on what you wish they had meant. Or better yet, find some European judge with whom you agree and cite them.

To think that Souter was a George H. W. Bush appointment. Nice job #41! You missed your calling and should have been a talent scout for the Detroit Lions. I'm surprised the wispy-framed Harvard philosophy major and lawyer didn't draw earlier Lion's interest to fill a need for outside linebacker.

Obama is expected to appoint a woman. At least that is what is stated in every article on this story. If you read between the lines, what it really says is, "OBAMA BETTER APPOINT A WOMEN." Liberals never look for the most qualified individual for the job at hand. They count noses and separate people based on sex and skin color. Fellow left wing justice Ruth "Buzzi" Ginsberg is the only women on the court, but has been in an ongoing fight cancer. The call for another women may spring from a desire to give Ginsberg a girl friend to accompany her to the powder room, or just to have a women on deck to prepare for the time when the frail Ginsberg finally kicks the bucket. Not that I would like to see this happen.

I have gone on record here wishing the 76-year-old Ginsberg a full recovery and a long life of at least four (but no more than 8) more years.

I wonder if Hillary is kicking herself with her thunderous thigh. She would have been a shoe-in for this post for life instead of this temporary 4 year gig she currently holds.

Hey Barry, you know what we don't have on the court right now? A lesbo.(John Paul Stevens questions notwithstanding) In the spirit of true liberal diversity, you need to appoint a special kind of women. Should "she" be a Dyke, Butch, Femme, Lipstick Lesbian, Girly Girl, Futch, Stone Butch, Stone Femme, Chapstick Lesbian, Baby Dyke, Tomboi, or Hasbian? (it must be tough to be a fair lib.)

by Allahpundit over at Hot Air: "The only “good” news is that Souter was one of the most reliably liberal votes on the Court. Barry O would have to appoint an out-and-out socialist, practically, to tilt it further left."

Hey Soutie! Don't let the small, hinged swinging door hit you in the arse as you leave the courtroom for New Hampshire.
