David Frum has mocked Glenn Beck from the standpoint of the 295 million Americans that don't watch Beck. Wonder if Frum realizes that the number having no idea who David Frum is surpasses even that figure?
Al Sharpton held a rally against the Congressional investigation into radical Islam. Amazing dupes such as him fail to realize he will be among the first eliminated should an Islamist revolution (or any kind of leftist revolution for that matter) ever takes place.
Even if the government gave every ghetto youth a laptop and an IPOD as Jesse Jackson Jr. suggests, they wouldn't use the devices for educational purposes.
Obama is having his own beer brewed at the White House. Guess it is revealed after all that the thing wrong with homebrewing is not so much the health concerns but rather that the government might not get its cut if you sell it to some friends or neighbors. You let it out that you brew your own beer and see if they don't torch your place like the Waco compound in the name of public safety.
A true cowboy wouldn't want the federal government to finance their poetry festival.
If you think it is mean spirited to cut Public Broadcasting, just think how mean spirited it will be when Americans are forced to live in conditions reminiscent of Mel Gibson's "Mad Max" or Kevin Costner's "The Postman".
Castro’s Twitter account breaks 100,000 followers. His regime heralds it as the first Cuban themed account to reach that plateau. Most Cubans probably don’t even have access to electricity and any with Twitter accounts are probably sent to labor camps or executed before being allowed to attract such a following.
A state park has celebrated Pancho Villa’s attack. Only in America are those out to destroy us lavished with government funds and public accolades.
Representative Keith Ellison broke down during Congressional hearings into radical Islam in recounting the plight of a Muslim rescue worker that perished in the attack on the World Trade Center. Wonder if Rep. Keith Ellison shed any tears for any non-Mulsims that perished on 9/11. Rep. Ellison notes 29 Muslims died in New York on 9/11. I guess adherents of other creeds perishing that day aren't worthy of this esteemed legislator's mention. With the name “Keith Ellison”, it’s doubtful the Minnesota representative was born a Muslim. Wonder if a Muslim converting to Christianity would even be allowed to remain alive in an Islamist society much less serve in its legislature. Wonder how many tears Keith Ellison has shed over Muslims killed for converting to Christianity. How come its an emotional act of courage for Ellison to weep but a lack of manhood when the Speaker of the House sheds tears?
Religious fanatics have already categorized the Japanese earthquake as God's judgment and insinuated the victims got what they deserved. Unless one of the victims was conducting seismic warfare experiments that got the best of them, isn't such a conclusion a bit presumptuous? It's not like the Almighty promptly issued a press release as to why this particular tragedy was allowed to occur.
A British mother claims her premature baby was tossed into a room to die. Struggling in his mother's arms as life slipped from his one-pound body, hospital staff did nothing (as stipulated by hospital policy) to save his life. Apparently there is no money to save you if you have a solid English name like "Godwin" as did this child. However, no doubt bags of cash will be tossed your way if your name is "Akmed" or "Hasan" and intend to defecate all over the Union Jack.
A Florida school has implemented a virtual police state, including gastronomical prohibitions and low tech breathalyzer checks, over the peanut allergy of a single student. Wouldn't responsible parents instead simply homeschool the child, acquire a tutor, or send their offspring to a special facility? So if a school can ban peanuts because even the aroma of this particular legume might send a single student into fatal apoplexy, if American students are sickened by the stench of the swill eaten by foreigners, will these kinds of victuals be banned as well?
Wasn't aware votive candles could be eaten. If not, why are they in the aisle listed as "Hispanic Food"? I don't remember there being an aisle demarcated as "Redneck Food" dedicated to Anglo dietary peculiarities.
On the 3/24/11 episode of "Radio Liberty with Stan Montieth", privacy advocate Katherine Albrecht warned that electricity rates could go as high as $1,000 per month for those not upgrading their appliances and utilities to "smart grid" technologies.
Farrakhan explicitly insists that Americans (especially the White ones which his sect believes are the result of an ancient experiment in genetic engineering) are beasts and not human. This is so when his minions start killing, in their eyes it won’t be construed as murder since that is a crime committed against human beings and not animals.
Scientists from Harvard and MIT are developing instruments to confirm their preconceived hypothesis that life on Earth actually began on Mars. Yet if one believes the Genesis account as literal, they are laughed out of academia. This is being done for no other reason than to lay the foundation for declaring humanity the greatest invasive species of them all and to justify what will become history's most notorious campaign of genocide. Mark 13:20 reads, “And except that the Lord had shortened those days, no flesh should be saved: but for the elect's sake, whom he hath chosen, he hath shortened the days.”

In his comments regarding the cancellation of a football game, Pennsylvania Governor Ed Rendell actually let slip the contempt he feels towards the citizens of the United States in general and the people of the Keystone State in particular.
In one remark especially, Rendell posited that the Chinese are to be extolled for the hypothetical situation that they would likely attend a scheduled athletic event despite dangerous weather conditions and march down to the arena on foot in the process.
While most of the hypertolerant zeroed in on what they perceived as the disparagement of the Chinese, that comment is actually quite revealing regarding Rendell's most deeply held social and political convictions.
For instead of being a mockery of China, Rendell's statement is the expression of a desire that our system become more like a totalitarian one.
Cancelling the game on account of foul weather is an acknowledgement of the principle that the individual possesses an inherent worth that certainly surpasses something like a football game that is not essential to maintain a function that could not be done without.
In China, the value of an individual life is next to nothing whatsoever. If a number of people die there, it is not seen as that big of a deal.
With the demographic situation there being what the government would categorize as an excess of population, a thinning of the social herd if handled delicately during an event that would bring glory to the state could be viewed as a win/win situation.
If Rendell thinks that we have an obligation to attend such communal functions irrespective of the consequences, another important issue is raised.
As a supporter of Obamacare with a number of its policy architects insisting that those having crossed the peek of midlife are less worthy of the full attention of the medical establishment, would Governor Rendell endorse the removal of treatment from the elderly heeding his admonition that they endanger themselves on hazardous roads?
Ed Rendell thinks that cancelling a game for count of snow contributes to the wussification of America. Perhaps he will be the one to slip on the ice and shatter a hip or have a loved one perish in a traffic accident on an icy road.

If Deism is the belief that God is so transcendent from the cosmos He created that He no longer participates directly in it, Pantheism must be the worldview at the other end of the continuum believing that a higher power exists as Pantheism holds that God is so immanent with the universe that God and the universe are one. As a worldview, Pantheism has plagued the religious thought of both the East and West from ancient times on up through our contemporary day.
Though there are various forms of Pantheism, most share a set of common characteristics. Pantheists will agree that ultimately there is but one substance.
Parmenides hypothesized that there is either being or nonbeing and in order to exist there must be being. And if everything possesses this quality, everything is of the same substance as to differ by nothing would be not to exist at all.
Though everything is ultimately one under Pantheism, what we perceive as multiplicity or distinction are either manifestations or emanations of the absolute unity.
In the "Enneads", the Greek mystic Plotinus said that from this impersonal unity flowed the various levels of reality starting with unity, then inward into mind, then the world soul, then multiple souls, then to the lowest level of matter. It is man, Geisler writes in "Christian Apologetics" of this brand of Pantheism as "the microcosm who possesses mind, soul, and matter" that the journey back to unity and oneness begins (175).
Though slightly different, other forms of Pantheism share considerable similarity. For example, in Spinoza's pantheism, God is a substance of infinite attributes and we exist as transient manifestations of the absolute that are eventually reabsorbed back into it. And in Hinduism, though that world religion is noted for its multiplicities of divinities, in its philosophically complex variants, the various gods all the way down to the material components of the physical world are the assorted levels of the comprehensive totality known as Brahman.
Though many Pantheists claim to embrace tolerance as they contend all religions are merely human efforts to understand the same all-encompassing God, one is really taking the serpent to one’s bosom when dealing with Pantheism. For example, in much of Pantheist thought, it is held that both good and evil flow from God much in the same way there is both a light and dark side of the Force in the Star Wars epic. Other Pantheists claim that God is beyond good and evil as understood by human beings.
Such positions could be used to not only to justify any number of atrocities but also to view them in a disturbingly detached manner or even positively in an around about fashion. For example, if good and evil are simply just human conceptions useful for ordering social relations, what is so inherently immoral about the Holocaust?
After all, were not the Jews the ones anyway that set the ball rolling on the theism that ended up promoting the conceptual dualism that now hinders the expansion of consciousness? Besides, by liberating them of their physical materiality, aren’t we doing them a favor by reuniting them with universal oneness? Under Pantheism, the “is” becomes the “ought” and that is why one sees cows strutting freely down the streets of India with the baby girls tossed out with the trash.

The African nation of Malawi has passed a law criminalizing public incidents of flatulence. This raises the question of what will happen in reference to the quandary where the rectal emissions are categorized as “silent but violent”? This will no doubt be resolved in the precedent-setting decision of “You Smelled It vs. You Dealt It”.
Don't know whether to laugh or cringe at the tone of some articles calling for eager obedience and compliance with government dietary guidelines. Elites wanting to alter the composition of snack foods should be told to go lick a salt block.
Wonder if Anderson Cooper is as enamored now as he once was of the proverbial "Arab Street". Wonder if Anderson Cooper realizes now the considerable differences between Islamists and those he once ridiculed as “Teabaggers”.
Interesting that the unions insisting Obamacare is essential to the Republic's survival have been granted exemptions from ithe legislation. Interesting how the corporations pledging allegiance to the Obama regime are being exempted from his punitive decrees.
The "pro-democracy" demonstrators of the present decade usually end up being the tyrants chased from office decades down the road.
In Canada, a child was excluded from a contest to win a stuffed animal because he brought his lunch in a Ziploc bag. Eventually, parents of students caught trafficking in prohibited forms of nutritional conveyance will find social services knocking on their doorsteps.
According to WUSA9.com, students in the “Social Justice” class at Archbishop Caroll School write letters to companies the students believe are exploiting the employees. Do they also intend to write letters about welfare recipients, that obviously don’t know how to keep a zipper up given their number of out of wedlock kids, who eat higher up the food chain than those paying the taxes providing entitlement benefits? Better yet, to understand the full implications of social justice, shouldn’t students acing the coarse have points shaved off their stellar grades and distributed to those that did not put forth as much effort in the class?
Obama is urging Mubarak to leave office promptly and peacefully. Wonder if he'll eventually follow his own advice when it is his own turn to leave power.
If Fox can reject a Super Bowl advertisement for advocating beliefs or practices that might spark “the wrong kind of controversy” in regards to John 3:16, shouldn’t the network ban ads for beer as well? For do not commercials for that particular product promote the position that it is moral to imbibe noxious liquids for nonmedicinal purposes often in pursuit of fornicative ends?
If an advertisement featuring John 3:16 couldn't air during the Super Bowl because broadcasting the segment would spark undue controversy and advocate a certain belief, will the Black Eyes Peas be punished for their ditty calling for increased education spending? Apparently the band is talented in neither music nor public policy.
No matter what side prevails in Egypt, we are pretty much screwed for failing to cultivate our own domestic petroleum resources.
If it is improper to ask potential voters or accused criminals to show their ID's to authorities, there is no reason for Burger King cashiers to ask me what my name is so they can print it on the receipt.
Traditionally, national security is invoked as an excuse to justify any assortment of civil liberties infringements. Thus, if Frau Obama is successful in persuading the policy establishment as to the veracity of her perspective linking obesity and nutrition to national security, just how much control will government exert over what Americans eat.
The White House Super Bowl party menu included bratwurst, cheeseburgers, pizza and beer. Where are the locally grown vegetables and low salt snacks?
Only asinine hippy parents make their kids eat carrot sticks, apple slices, and milk when they go out to eat.
If the federal government is going to send out Presidential Emergency Alerts to the nation's cellphones, is the message going to be charged to the recipients account or is Obama picking up the tab?
A WMAL host laments that the Super Bowl is not family friendly from the standpoint of the late kickoff. How is the NFL responsible if you can't get your kids to bed at a respectable hour? Not like youngsters are going to be irrevocably damaged by missing an ideal bed time. Guess this will be the next thing the Obama's monitor.
In comments at the Washington National Cathedral regarding faith and environmentalism, the head of the National Association of Evangelicals said that we need to revision our entire lives, families, and COMMUNITIES. Perhaps foremost among these is why does there need to be a National Cathedral? For though it is a beautiful and inspirational edifice, if we are to live lives of pious austerity, technically God doesn't really require a structure all that ornate.
In discussing GoProud (a group of gay Republicans) at CPAC, WMAL host Chris Plante invoked a quote by Ronald Reagan about working with those over which you agree 80% and disagree 20%. Does this mean that the Conservative Political Action Conference will eventually welcome a breakaway polygamist Mormon?
The New York Times is outraged that Disney marketers are targeting newborns by visiting mothers in maternity wards and trying to get new mothers to sign up for email updates and complimentary merchandize. Too bad the nation's paper of record is not as eager to expose how Social Services often pressures new parents into home visits.
The Washington Post reported that most handguns in DC were registered in Northwest neighborhoods. In others words, where the rich liberals thinking we rabble should be denied the Second Amendment reside.
Some banks have announced that they may impose fees on basic checking accounts. These financial institutions will no doubt moan and whine for more government handouts when consumers close out accounts.
If George Will is favorable to the presidential candidacy of Mitch Daniels and Mitch Daniels is hinting that healthcare should be denied to those of marginal social utility, does that include Will's mentally challenged son or is this something to be imposed upon those of us that don't wear red bowties, bad toupees or write useless tomes on baseball?
Hispanosupremacists are condemning an Arizona proposal to verify the legality of those utilizing that state's hospitals. You as a real American without lips chronically attached to the welfare teat try to get medical services without the proper paperwork. If You show up at some foreign hospital without proof that you are there legally, they'd probably vivisect you for organ harvesting.
Frau Obama believes youngsters are to suckle teat as long as possible. Is there any aspect of our lives that this government doesn't think is it's place to hand down a proclamation regarding? Guess we'll soon be given instruction as to which position the Obama administration prefers husbands and wives to partake of carnal relations in. A hypothetical future headline will read: "Obamas Insist Lefthand The One For Proper Anal Hygiene". This isn't too far out of a conjecture given their propensity to interfere in all aspects of our lives and for often siding with Third World cultures of a certain persuasion over our own.
It's time to sell off American park lands and museum treasures on Ebay to tackle the debt. It's heartbreaking, but less so than selling your children into slavery. What good is the Hope Diamond, Fonzi’s Jacket, or Archie Bunker’s Chair going to do you when you receive the mid to late 21st century’s equivalent of a jury duty notice that you are to report to a Chinese foundry where you are to render 15 years of hard labor to go towards national debt restitution?
What idea do you prefer and gives you greater comfort: that the First Ladies’ Inauguration Ball Gowns are on display or avoiding an old age living under what use to be a highway overpass as you evade being cannibalized by starving migrant teens?

Too bad no member of Congress possessed the courage to blurt out "You lie", especially in light how everyone was suppose to make bipartisan goo-goo eyes at one another.
Obama says cutting stimulus is akin to taking the motor out of an airplane taking off. But how can a jetliner even take off when the flue supply has already been burned up?
The camera panned the congressional gallery and showed the head of Xerox sitting in the crowd. Guess they need her to help make all that money that really isn't there.
Obama praised education for beginning earlier in China than in the United States. Guess the government should haul the child off as soon as the youngster emerges from the womb. Perhaps Obama should elaborate to the nation what he thinks of those slave labor camps where children are snatched from their parents and beaten into being Olympic athletes and the like.
Does Obama realize that it's not government that sparks imagination?
Soviets did not beat America into space not so much because of the superiority of their technology or social system but because we were concerned they would disapprove of us using a missile as a rocket.
If Obama believes in spreading the wealth around like he told Joe the Plumber, why should we bother being educated for the complex jobs he is promising?
If more students get college degrees through government subsidies that disrupt the market, the credentials will be useless in securing better employment and higher pay.
I guess $4.00 per gallon gas is reinvented energy policy.
Will one of the promised millions of electric vehicles be Obama’s or will he continue to ride around in gas guzzlers?
Obama is emphasizing rail transportation because the electric cars he is promoting will pretty much otherwise confine people to the areas in which government will permit them to live.
Wonder how many homes will be abolished and how much private property seized to build this fabled high speed train.
By calling the proposed high-speed rail system a "bullet train", isn't the President contributing to the coarsening of the national discourse?
Quite revealing how History is deliberately omitted from the list of subjects such as Math and Science that those advocating an increased federal role in education believe need to be emphasized as part of a renewed national education policy.
If Obama doesn't like foreign students returning to their native lands upon completion of their studies, perhaps they should not be admitted to American universities to begin with.
Obama insists that foreigners are the ones enriching America and fostering innovation. Guess actual Americans are just suppose to keep our mouths shut and paying taxes out the wazoo.
Many of the implications of what Obama says are more between the lines rather than said openly.
For example, the President calls for the leveling of tax rates. This could just as easily mean increasing assessments instead of lowering them.
Obama claims he will eliminate unnecessary regulations. Thing is, he no doubt sees the vast majority of those his minions are promulgating as absolutely necessary.
Contrary to the impression Obama attempted to create, deficit spending just didn't begin a decade ago. My grandfather passed away more than a decade ago and I remember him warning about the national debt when I was a kid.
The way the camera froze and elongated the image, for a moment, Obama looked like the Necromonger emperor in "The Chronicles Of Riddick".
Obama reassured that Muslims are a part of the American family. What about other religions, especially the ones not as inclined to blow things up when they don't get their way?
Likewise, Obama went out of his way to mention gay military personnel. Why aren't the sacrifices of heterosexuals worthy of mention?
Obama hopes to establish new alliances and friendships across the Americas. Wonder how much that is going to cost.
I tabulated 81 rounds of applause during the 2011 State of the Union Address.

A number of leftist Democrats either boycotted the reading of the Constitution in the House of Representatives or denigrated the ceremony.
These representatives should either resign or be removed from office.
For if they think that the very thing that authorizes them to hold office and wield authority is irrelevant, shameful or outdated propaganda, they certainly shouldn't be granted a hefty salary under a system that they have exhibited so much contempt for that they can't even grant the respect to to hear read aloud.
Americans would be shocked and outraged to learn of an athlete thinking themselves too good to be bothered with learning the basic rules of the game.
Then shouldn't we be even more so when it comes to those that actually assume that they have more of a right to run and order our lives than we do?

It was stated on Fox News that each family's share of the national debt is approximately $45,000.
In the attempt to make the amount more manageable, perhaps naming rights could be sold to various government landmarks or agencies in a manner similar to the way corporations currently purchase the ones to athletic stadiums.
For example, the Lincoln Memorial could be renamed “the Lincoln Mercury Lincoln Memorial”.
Social Security checks and statements could have boldly emblazoned across them “Brought to you by Depends Undergarments” or the name of a prominent retirement community in a given area.
The Capitol Building could have a giant Pepsi logo painted on it for the right price.
Prominent national parks could be sold off or contracted out as Disney resorts provided the Magic Kingdom agreed to leave these land holdings in a state close to natural. Given the levels to which gas prices are expected to rise over the coming years, it’s not like anyone other than the elites are going to be able to travel to enjoy these treasures anyway.
Since it has been hinted at in occultic circles that the Washington Monument is actually a gigantic phallus, it could be renamed “Trojan’s Washington Monument”.
Of course in each of these cases, steps could be taken to ensure that corporate influence would be limited to advertising and image purposes only.
Still distasteful and undignified?
Of course it is; but it less so than your children starving to death for lack resources available to feed them, being conscripted into Red Chinese slave labor factories, or having to surrender the nation’s daughters to Arab harems in the attempt to settle astronomical debt.

On the History Channel special "Prophets Of Doom", most of the talking heads assembled to discuss a number of the scenarios potentially instigating the collapse of the United States insisted that the nation must return to a system of localized agriculture.
Interestingly, though, none of the gathered researchers and theoreticians looked like they would be all that much into manual labor.
So I guess in their thinking, it will be up to you to give up your standard of living. They, on the other hand, will get to become the new feudal lords still sitting around thinking what by then will be useless kinds of thoughts while you will be the one toiling away in the fields.
Though an intellectually stimulating program and discussion, one couldn’t help but notice the hypocrisy of the analysts filmed driving around in their automobiles lamenting how human beings should have never been allowed to advance to the level of technology that we now enjoy.
Interesting how the old bald guy with the earring gripping about the decline of fossil fuel supplies never said a word about part of that crisis resulting from legislative and bureaucratic prohibitions against exploring for and developing new sources of oil within our own borders and off our own shores where other world powers are beginning to stake a claim.
If those assembled were suppose to be such experts about the threats that could lay west to modern civilization, how come not a single word was raised regarding electromagnetic pulse weapons?

The deficit reduction commission was a panel charged with suggesting ways to curtail America’s decline into paupery.
Foremost among these ranked increasing the retirement age to nearly 70 years. If such a proposal were ever enacted, it would be the first time in decades that the ruling elites have taken Biblical revelation into consideration.
You see, the Good Book teaches that that is about the end of the human lifespan and anything beyond that is usually categorized as a descent into suffering.
To state things bluntly, dear readers, the government eventually plans to cross its fingers hoping that you will just die on the job.
But whereas you will be extolled the glories and delight of sacrifice, it is doubtful the same will be required by the likes of those seated on the commission.
For example, the co-chair of this panel was retired Senator Allan Simpson. As part of the sacrifice we are all expected to shoulder with a smile, has Allan Simpson forsaken the benefits the members of that deliberative body have been known to accumulate once they leave it?
So before we ever cut back on the elderly tottering along the edges of destitution, perhaps we should curtail the lavish benefits extended to those elevated to membership in the federal legislative body already millionaires to begin with or whom often use their time in elected office as springboards to additional fortunes, accolades, and honors.
Perhaps better yet, lets abolish Congressional salaries all together. Then those entering these national halls will be more prone to depart from them under their own power long before they have to be pushed out in a wheelchair.
