So Secretary of State John Kerry believes that Israel is becoming “an apartheid state”?

if I could rewind the tape (of that hateful video), I would have chosen a different word...

As it turns out, a different word wouldn't have mattered. The typical democrat man/woman/'other' doesn't know what Kerry said in the first place, nor could tell you what 'Apartheid' even means if told.

Poll results from random progressives on the streets of Anytown, USA.
What did Secretary of State John Kerry say that Israel is becoming? (all answers are anagrams of the word 'apartheid')

23% Tapir Head
34% Diaper Hat
18% Taped Hair
24% Aphid Tear
1% Apartheid

Coincidentally, "Paid Hater" is also an anagram of the word apartheid, and is an accurate description of our secretary of state.

obama foreign policy 'month in review'

While Russian troops mass on the Ukraine border, it would appear at first blush that obama is out of options to prevent an invasion. However, I may just have a solution.

But first, let's look at the obama foreign policy 'month in review' and the frightening escalation to date (sadly, despite my embellishments, these are all true):

1) Obama applies personal sanctions against some in Putin's inner circle, including his barber and Horse Whisperer after Crimea was annexed.

2) When a Russian jet fighter buzzed a U.S. warship in the Black Sea 2 weeks ago, obama through surrogates called this Russian aggression "provocative and unprofessional" and "inconsistent with international protocols".

TAKE THAT PUTIN! Don't be buzzing our warships again, or Obama will be forced to up the rhetorical flourish and call you something really pseudo-intellectual, and won't that be embarrassing for you sir? How would you like to be on the business end of a "galling and unscrupulous"? Nyet? I didn't think so.

3) Obama decides 'sh*t gettin' real', and a week ago sends Joe Biden to Ukraine (purpose unknown). My guess is that Biden was sent to rally the wheelchair-bound Ukrainians to "stand up and let 'em see ya! Oh, God love ya!"

4) In a bold move, Obama has his Secretary of Defense, Chuck Hagel, making prank calls to his Russian counterpart, whom he has on speed dial. The Russians are no longer taking our calls now, after the first 3 times Hagel did the "Do you have Prince Edwards in a can?" routine.

(BTW, I'm guessing Hagel's Russian counterpart is Putin's stable boy Horse Whisperer)

I know it's hard to believe, but not one of these bold obama initiatives have worked.

Then it occurred to me. Remember the cheap, plastic red button that read "RESET" in English on one side, and the misspelled Russian word inadvertently translated to "OVERCHARGE" on the other?

Here's your RESET BUTTON!

Imagine if these buttons were mass produced and included the advanced technology Chipcorders, or sound-recording chips used in many Greeting Cards today. And what if these buttons were installed along the Ukraine border 'button-side up'? And what if someone stepped on the button, thereby engaging the prerecorded sound installed? And what if this sound was an actual recording of Hillary's annoying and unpleasant cackle? Peace on Erf. You're welcome. Just watch your step as you exit this blog.

The 28th Chernobyl Anniversary Dinner

My wife and I went to dinner Saturday to celebrate the 28th Anniversary of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster, which just coincidentally shares the same exact date as when we were married.
(Happy Anniversary Babe, Now go get me a cold one!)
We toast to another year, EVERY year! I mean, with a half life of a couple thousand years, we are 28 years closer to being able to honeymoon in northern Ukraine.

My wife and I are separated in age by 4 years and 4 months. Not that big of deal now, and not that unusual of an age spread. I did meet her just prior to her 15th birthday (well, you do the math) and apparently this was considered scandalous and worthy of joke-making over the years. Hey, she was mature for her age, and I'm still waiting. Of course, there have always been the obligatory "school bus" jokes and "Big Wheel" jokes over the years, what with several brothers chiming in.

I only mention this as evidence that I "dug" her despite her age, not because of it. Over the years, I have joked with the misses that I married young so she would be in good shape to spoon feed me my oatmeal down the road. She hasn't warmed up to that idea yet, but I'm hoping I have a few more decades to get her to quit looking for a retirement home for me.

I mention all this as context for this picture I posted on Facebook to everyone's amusement Saturday. I thought I might as well include my blog friends.

Kids, I don't care WHAT your uncles tell you. This is NOT...
I hate to get all sentimental, but I'm just gonna put it out there. As I look at this picture and tear up, I am reminded of first love. Oh sure, you were quite a bit younger than I was when we met, but you were not without many years of experience. and we did hit a few potholes over the years, but we managed to perservere. When your under carriage started to drag, I moved on and have ridden many since those days. But there is nothing like a first love. Thanks for the memories, my 1976 Camaro Rally Sport. Oh, and Happy Anniversary to the wife!

I apologize for not posting a picture of my plate of food I ate for my Chernobyl Anniversary celebration dinner, breaking an unspoken FB rule of sorts. I wasn't carrying my phone (and I don't mean this to brag, but my phone apparently has a built in camera).

As I've mentioned before, I quit carrying my phone. A side benefit is that it makes it harder for the government to track me. In fact, if the government is tracking me by my cell phone GPS chip, they must think I haven't left the dark, yet comfortable confines of my bedroom closet in months. Haha! I actually only spend a few hours a week in there, curled into a ball and sobbing. Buffoons!

As for the line-of-sight drone picture taken from 30 thousand feet of my 12-ounce medium rare Sirloin with a side of mashed Cesium 137, it was delish!

Obama Asia Tour Pop Quiz

President Obama wraps up his visit with Japan, leaving for South Korea later today in the next leg of his Asia tour. Let's see if you were paying attention while he was in Japan.


The Japanese press were upset that obama left his (BLANK) at home.
a) Golf clubs
b) Vice President Joe Biden
c) Choom gang
d) wife, The First Lady, Michelle Obama

2  Obama was caught bowing again, this time to a (BLANK)
a) half eaten plate of sushi
b) 90 degree sand wedge
c) bowl of noodles
d) male Japanese Robot

3  Obama was criticized for not being able to finish his (BLANK)
a) male Japanese Robot
b) wife, The First Lady, Michelle Obama
c) golf round
d) half eaten plate of sushi

ANSWER KEY (all 'd')
But I would like to dispute ONE of these...

I'm just happy that Michelle was able to join her husband (the one in the sensible shoes) in Tokyo before the president departs for South Korea later today. This should FINALLY put to rest the rumors of divorce, as well as indescriminate rampages through the Japanese capital, toppling buildings and breathing fire at fleeing taxis.

**whispering urgently** Psssst! Mr. President... That is not the First Lady! Please quietly extricate yourself from the scaly creature and move away slowly... DO NOT RUN!

OBAMA: Uhhhh... What are you talking about? Not Michelle? Why I'd recognize her anthropomorphic torso, muscular arms, furrowed brow and hot breath anywhere! Oh sure, the spikes along the back and tail are new, but who's to say that's not an improvement?

BONUS QUESTION:  Who picks up a bus and throws it back down
As (they) wade through the buildings toward the center of town?

Hint: "More Cow Bell!" (no, not Mooshell)

If it quacks like a duck, then it just may be a flatulating Antarctic minke whale

It may sound quacky, but mysterious duck-like sounds in the oceans are made by whales, a new study says.

Scientists have been trying to decode the perplexing low-frequency sounds, which occur every winter in the Southern Hemisphere in the ocean around Antarctica, since sonar began detecting them in the 1960s.


WE INTERRUPT THIS BLOG to bring you this urgent disclaimer by announcing that your blog host was unsuccessful in reading his own linked story in its entirety, and so therefore any opinions and conclusions cannot be relied upon or used as source material in any major college theses... Unless you want an 'A+'.

It was not for lack of trying, people. The title intrigued me enough to click the story, but I quickly lost interest and started to daydream. First, I wondered what a mad scientist marine biologist dude who had been in search of the source of duck sounds in the ocean since the 60s would look like. I know. Shallow of me, right? Why would there be a correlation between a man's life's work and his appearance.

I settled on this image.

Next I wondered how the whale made these duck-like quacking noises and I settled on Whale flatulence. It makes the most sense, and it is yet one more thing to worry about as it relates to the destruction of our prestine planet.

Then it struck me! WHALE COMMANDER DYNASTY! What self respecting aquarium wouldn't want their very own flatulating whale to draw huge crowds of paying customers? I foresee WHOLE parks created for just these gassy creatures. Whale Fart World! 

Instead of deep fried elephant ears, I can almost smell the deep fried whale fins sprinkled with confection sugar and tuna, or some anchovy-flavored cotton candy! I see gift shop vendors selling the stuffed animal mascot named something catchy... How about BEANO the Whale?

Before I count my riches, I need to catch a few of these gassy cetaceans, and for that I will need some Duck Fart Calls. I will reach out to Willie, Jase, Si and Phil of Duck Dynasty fame to gage their interest in this brand new business venture. I will promise to grow a beard and find a crazy uncle or two, if the networks come knocking for a spinoff TV show.

Then I started to doubt the veracity of my hasty conclusion. What if the source of the duck-like sounding flatulence wasn't coming from the whale's blowholes after all? What if (and isn't this the most likely cause) the 50+ years of repetitive "duck" sounds are actually flatulence originating from the gassy mad scientist marine biologist dude himself? Its human nature. Everybody blames the dog.

and really, who would want to visit Farting Marine Biologist World (besides me)?

*sigh* Oh well. Back to the drawing board. Side note (and true story) Around my house, I blame Miss Kay. :)

What used to be Black and White and Read all over, and Spoiled after just a few hours if not consumed?

Construction progresses in the new Flint Farmers Market in downtown Flint.
While many see "progress", I still feel heartbreak.

The new Farmer's Market is almost completed but I doubt I will ever go. I only live maybe 5 minutes from downtown Flint, but I have not been down there since my departure from the Journal in early 2010. That's not out of bitterness or any pledge I made. Its because it makes me sad, and I don't like to be sad. I've heard there is a renaissance of sorts, what with the new pubs, restaurants and diners (catering to the numerous college students, lawyers and courthouse employees and bail bondsmen?).

But I won't go there because instead of seeing 'progress' of new possibilities, all I see are the ghosts and memories of what once was.

Let me ask you a question: How hungry would you be for carrots, corn, or other fresh produce if the new Farmer's Market were to be constructed in a cemetery on the graves of your long dead memories?

Hard to believe it was 10 years ago this month when the shiny new newspaper press was unveiled at The Flint Journal. If this state-of-the-art, offset Regioman press from the German manufacturer MAN Roland was the mechanical heart of the newspaper's circulatory system, then the four press towers were the heart's chambers, pumping out thousands of newsprint copies per hour and sending them along the arteries of conveyors to be racked, stacked and misscounted before leaving the facility through the loading dock to waiting contractors.

Of course, the real heart of this newspaper were the hundreds of dedicated folks from reporters, photographers, advertising, accounting, circulation staff and distributors and all the staff who worked long hours swimming against the overpowering digital current.

The new $30 Million Presshall was mothballed in 2010 after 6 years of dedicated service. I was mothballed that same year after a measley 31 years.

I remember when this picture was snapped, and the excitement we felt during construction. I hope the folks involved in the retrofit are just as excited but have better luck with it. Me? I'm happy and doing well, but will get my fresh produce elsewhere.

PICTURED: Happier times for the press hall. About half of the then Flint Journal staff in April, 2004, pose with the new press. Click the picture twice to expand (hosted at my golf site). I'm at 57,27 (row,column).

A Secular White House Egg Roll Short Story

Once upon a time... 

Joe 'Reek' Biden woke up at dawn on the morning of April 21st, 2014 and catapulted out of his Trundle race car bunk bed he shared with Press secretary Jay Carney. Today would be the 136th White House Egg Roll hosted on the South Lawn, but Joe just hoped it would be his first egg roll victory.

The bottoms of Little Joe's feetie pajamas barely touched the floor, as he zoomed toward his large-handled wooden spoon atop his dresser that he would be using in today's contest. Little Joe ran his finger along it's smooth edge, as he thought fondly of the hours Barack and he had spent over the past year whittling, shaping and sanding this spoon from a piece of virgin pine, like father and son creating a Pinewood Derby car. The difference being, Little Joe had the benefit and use of NASA supercomputers dedicated to making the perfectly balanced wood spoon, with various Small lead weights inserted at just the right places.

Little Joe winced as he remembered the long weeks it had taken to become desensitized to this wooden spoon, as it reminded him of the metal serving spoons and spatulas used by White House kitchen staff to beat him when he said something stupid. These metal utensils had since been retired, as they had become more bent and twisted than the dining set of a hotel after hosting the mentalist and magician convention.

Then Little Joe smiled as he remembered the hours of training endured rolling frozen egg rolls on the Oval Office carpet. The grueling training was over. It was now show time and Little Joe knew that he was ready.


I am really going to be bummed if there is not more raw footage of Obama "playing basketball" on the South Lawn court again. Remember last year when he bricked air ball after air ball from the free throw line?

I'm not holding my breath. I'm sure his handlers have moved the barricades once used to block out the veterans from the WWII Memorial to now block Obama's access to the court and prevent more of this embarrassing footage from taking place.

Happy Easter! He is Risen!

The wolf will live with the lamb... DaBlade will not eat any progressive's lunch today... and the Chattering Teeth will lie with the peeps.

PICTURED: A gaggle of Peeps should always remain encased in a prison of packaging and plastic wrap lest they are set loose to create diabolical havok and decay. They're like liberals that way, but take it from me, you can get into trouble wrapping liberals in cellophane.

Seriously, those  marshmallow flavored chicks and bunnies are safe with me today and every day. As far as I'm concerned, they belong on the Island of misfit inedible Holiday treats, along with Christmas fruit cake, Valentine's Day chalk hearts and Halloween's candy corn. Now if a chocolate bunny or Cadbury egg wanders in front of my chattering teeth, I will not be held responsible for the carnage.

I would even eat a Peep if there was chocolate involved.

Peep 'Smores anyone?

Will Hillary's Campaign be Punished with a Grandbaby?

WITCH: There must be something your little heart desires.

HILLARY: Well, there is something. I want to be president, but I'm afraid the country isn't ready for a grandma president.

WITCH: I thought so. The presidency was stolen from you last time and You've EARNED it! Old Granny knows! Now take this apple, dearie, and give it to your daughter and make a wish!

HILLARY: You're right! Why should I be punished with a grandbaby during my campaign? And all I have to do is give her this apple?

WITCH: Yes, dearie. What difference, at this point, can it possibly make?


Isn't it sad, when you wonder whether the news that a married couple are expecting a baby is actually welcome? Apparently, if you're a progressive, it's not really a baby until you say it is. 

Abortion supporter Chelsea Clinton announced today that she’s pregnant — not with a fetus or clump of cells but with a “child.” 

from Chelsea's official announcement:
“Marc and I are very excited that we have our first child arriving later this year, and I certainly feel all the better — whether it’s a girl or a boy — that she or he will grow up in a world full of so many strong young female leaders...

Uhhh... excuse me Chelsea, but "whether it's a girl or a boy?" The LGBT called to complain you are forgetting someone.  

By the way, I'd be careful accepting any congratulatory cigars from grandpa Clinton if I were you. Now go eat your apple!

Freed Bundy Cows Exhibiting Livestock-holm Syndrome

While it's true that  the Feds left a trail of wreckage after the Bundy ranch siege, we are only now just discovering the psychological impact on the freed cattle.

The cows have been exhibiting communist and socialist tendencies since the release. I have coined this form of mad cow disease as "Livestock-holm Syndrome", a form of the more widely known Stockholm Syndrome, where the captive hostages express empathy and sympathy and have positive feelings toward their captors, sometimes to the point of defending and identifying with them. (per wiki)

As regular readers of this blog know, I have dedicated my life and lengthy career, if not the last 5 minutes in this nonsensical blog post, in the study of cow psychology. It is with those impressive credentials that I sat down to interview the self-named Cow Tse-dung, newly appointed leader of the herd (who asked to be shown only in silhouette to protect himself from the "Free-rangers").

CT NEWS: Mr. Dung, thank you for doing this.
COW TSE-DUNG: My pleasure. Before we get started, can I have the first cow, Mooshell, get you a cup of tea?
CT NEWS: No thank you. Good to know some things never change. First question, why is the entire herd just laying around smoking the tumbleweeds instead of grazing?
COW TSE-DUNG: In my cowmune, its each according to his ability, to each according to his need for feed. We just send a few agents out to tip over the few cows still trying to graze for themselves, and add their cuds to the collective. It's all gooooood.

To be continued...  (some people still have to go to work :)...

AMCs new series Turn gets a 9.5 out of 10 Desert Tortoises

What I'm watching: AMC's TURN
 ...The storyline follows a farmer who just wants to grow his cabbages in peace, but the red-coated Bureau of Land Management Stormtroopers of his majesty's army have other ideas.

Desperately out-numbered and against all odds, these freedom loving patriots of childhood friends band together to form The Culper Ring, an unlikely group of spies who turn the tide in America's fight for independence.

It's early, and only two episodes in, but so far I give this new historical series a nine-and-a-half Desert Tortoises out of ten.

I do believe I've watched this movie before. A thief steals a cowboy's property. The thief tries to sell it back to the cowboy. It doesn't go well for the thief.

Bureau of Land Management: "Did you bring some gold or silver with you?"
The Duke: Just lead.

Somebody ought to belt that thief in the mouth, but I won't... I won't...

Eric Holder is an Asparagus

Holder goes green
Excuse me...
Are there IRS agents targeting tea party groups in my teeth? I did some Fast & Furious tooth brushing, but it still feels like I have some fully armed Mexican Drug Cartels in there. Tell me the truth, do I have a few stalks of dead and abandoned U.S. diplomats in my teeth? You should not assume that is not a big deal to me. I think that it was inappropriate, I think it was unjust. But never think that was not a big deal to me.

First Lady Criticized Over Trip To The International Space Station

Fresh on the heels from her estimated $150 Million March Madness trip to China, First Lady Michelle Obama is now en route to The International Space Station (ISS) and once again is accompanied by her mother and daughters. Right wing critics are once again bellyaching at the price tag, this time estimated to be $1.5 Billion.

Once again, the First Lady is traveling conspicuously without her husband, pouring rocket fuel on the rumor flames that their marriage is on the rocks. Sources say the couple had another blowout, during which Mr. Obama was overheard pleading with his wife not to go to the ISS.

Excerpts of fight:
OBAMA: Woman, Where's yo dollah? Don'tchu even think about another vacation woman! Makes no sense! Makes me look bad!
MICHELLE: Don't YOU tell me what to do! I need another vacation from YOU! I need SPACE!
OBAMA: (*pause* *hand on chin in thought* *IDEA!*) Let me be clear. I forbid you to go to space.

A reporter for Chattering Teeth News caught up to the president at the putting green at Augusta National Golf Club.

CT NEWS: "Mister president, there are some who say you used reverse psychology on your wife, and that you really wanted nothing more than having her, the two brats and the mother-in-law orbiting 240 miles above the surface of the Earth because you had already made this tee time.
OBAMA: *wink* Now what kind of husband would I be if I denied my wife another spectacular view of the Great Wall of China.

The First Lady's itinerary includes space walks, zero gravity "Let's Move" aerobics and classroom video lessons, and a possible moon landing to collect rocks and maybe make a deposit or two, depending on the girls behavior.

The space station has more than 15,000 cubic feet of habitable volume, 14,500 of which has been cordoned off by a very demanding mother-in-law, who has already been insulting the international astronauts and scientist with orders to retrieve her floating shawl.

Did Obama Daughter's Twitter Post Leak Parent's Divorce Rumors?

"Yah! Two Ramadans Bitches!"

BARACK and Michelle Obama are getting closer to divorce!
He's lost control of his wife
The couple apparently had a MAJOR blowout over Michelle’s lavish vacation trip to China!

Sources say Barack exploded when Michelle refused to cancel her pricey getaway – even after White House advisers warned him that the first couple’s six-year string of extravagant vacations had already drained the U.S. Treasury of a whopping $150 million in tax­payers’ money.

“This was a blowout of epic proportions. Probably the nastiest White House fight they’ve ever had,” a Washington, D.C., insider told American tabloid the National Enquirer.

“They were both screaming at one another."

OBAMA: If my marriage to Mooshell was a sandwich at Zingerman’s, they’d have to call it the Stinkburger, or the Meanwich. Or maybe a Double decker Furberger with cheez whiz... uhhhh, maybe a Bratwurst and fish taco slider. Let me be clear. When this Amazon straps on her cod piece, it's like Chipped Beast on Powdered Toast Man. What a pulled Pork on Panini with limburger crap sandwich.... uhhh, gotta go now. I made myself hungry."

zero-sum passion, and how to properly display the flag

When you watch the following video,

Who do you most identify with?

A) The marine and soldier who "serve their f-ing country" and take back the flag from protesters for disrespecting it.
B) The two protesters on the moped with the upside-down flag, celebrating one of those amendment thingys.
C) The seemingly homeless dude who appears to be panhandling on the side of the road and who mumbles something to the marine soldiers.
D) Any one of the honking drivers who just want them to get out of the way so they can get to the liquor store.
E) Need more info to answer.

I contend the answer is 'E'. I need more information before making an informed selection.

"C'mon 'Blade! The obvious answer is 'A', the marine and soldier who protected the honor of the flag. I thought you were patriotic?"

I am patriotic, just to the country as it was founded. And I have nothing but love and admiration for our service men and women risking everything to protect what's left of our freedoms (just not the pseudo-service folks planning jihad). I just don't salute the 'new' flag and what it stands for these days. I will always salute and honor the Old Glory from the history books. You know, the flag obama refused to salute before Mooshell and him actually loved their country?

Stunning satellite photographs prove Obama is not impressed.

and now for Sports...

I will not be watching the NCAA Final Four Men's Basketball tournament games this weekend. I'm not bragging, just stating a fact. I have only watched parts of two games total in this tournament out of a mild interest in the 'home' teams, Michigan and Michigan State, and they were both losses. That's OK. I'm not bitter and it didn't ruin my day or ruin my non-existing bracket.

I used to care about March Madness. I used to be totally invested. I would have several variety of pools going simultaneously. I watched every game, including matchups of teams I had never heard of... like Gonzogobeans vs Beaver Lick State. I had a war room of brackets affixed to the wall with push pins, inter-connected by various colored crossing strings and yarns signifying outcome scenarious, yellow highlighters and black markers nearby and at the ready. It may have appeared to passerbys I was trying to solve a series of crimes by my "clue wall" rather than following a basketball tournament.

Now? Meh.

Is 'passion' a zero-sum game? Is one's passion like a finite amount of water in a bucket? In other words, if my passion and concern for something is increasing exponentially, does it draw that passion and concern from other areas in my life, thereby causing me to necessarily care less about something else? An interesting query that I would ponder further if I could only manage to muster the passion to care about the answer. Meh.

During the Michigan game, I sensed that my wife was actively rooting AGAINST my Wolverines. After almost 28 years of marriage, you fine-tune that sixth sense regarding your spouse. That, and I heard her say, "I hope Michigan gets their a$$es kicked!," or something to that effect.

Hmmm. She was evidently more passionate regarding this game's outcome than I was. Oh well, here's my 'Man Card'. It was a good run... Wait! My wife doesn't care about basketball, let alone any sport for that matter (unless when her boys were playing).

No, my wife is not a passionate Kentucky fan. And no, she is not a Sparty fan who relishes in the intrastate rival's woes. In fact, her passion for Michigan to lose had nothing to do with basketball at all and everything to do with the story I mentioned in yesterday's blog about the university sponsoring a perverted, disgusting and blasphemous exhibit praising abortion as a "Gift From God".

"Honey, do you think the other team's university is any less secular-progressively screwed up?," I asked.

"I don't care," she answered. AH HAH! ZERO-SUM!

The brand that is "Michigan" has taken one too many hits, as far as my wife is concerned. I get it. I like to watch sports as an escape from the reality that the progressive left has destroyed this nation's cultural foundation, not to be reminded of them. I guess that's hard when your home team's uniform represents a school who's mission seems to be to tear down truth and righteousness. When I see the Maize and Blue, I try to remember the Wolverines from my youth when the brand was shiny and seemingly wholesome.

Maybe that is how to view the flag. I know what it stands for, regardless of how the left tries to re-define it. So without evidence to the contrary, I change my answer to 'A'.

7.1 MILLION students to attend Obama's speech at U-M in Ann Arbor today proposing to raise the minimum wage to $10.10/hour

(and other completely arbitrary and made-up bogus numbers to appease his low information supporters)

The serial-liar-in-chief really is paying a visit to U-M today, but the 7.1 MILLION attendees number is completely fabricated on my part. I just wanted to get in tune the our president and his propensity to make s*%t up.

Top 5 reasons why the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor is a good venue for Obama:
#1: Mooshell will not be there.

#B: Michigan constitutes one of the largest Arab and Muslim populations in the U.S., and Dearborn to Ann Arbor seems to be ground zero. The president should be made to feel very welcome here.

#&: Obama does NOT have to send his advance team with various tarps and canvas to cover Christian religious symbols like Crosses and any mention of Jesus (like he has done before when desecrating the grounds of Georgetown University or Notre Dame with his presence).

In fact, the University of Michigan actually has a pro-abortion display on campus called “4000 Years of Choice”, which declares “Abortion as a Blessing” and a “gift from God".

Seriously, how much more f%$*ed up can the progressive left get?

(yes, I used an ampersand instead of the #2, and a 'B' instead of a '2'. This is my blog and I can make 'numbers' up to.).

Cute li'l guy, ain't he?

Common Core in Obama's War Room

What I'm reading

Common Core Predictions Offer Much-Needed Dose Of Encouragement

Though the leftist indoctrination of America’s public school system has been a concern for parents over the past several generations, the introduction of the federal curriculum known as Common Core has caused anxiety to increase exponentially. Course material in all subjects has a very direct political agenda that contradicts the values held by millions of American families.

As disastrous as these initiatives are, some experts have found a potential bright spot. All but five states have begun to adopt the Common Core curriculum and, in those states, the backlash among citizens has been cacophonous. Many feel such activism at the community level will translate to big wins for conservative candidates who adamantly oppose the intrusive and propagandistic educational material.

Obama uses Common Core worksheet for the problem of the day
