I know it’s Monday. I apologize. My usual excuse is caregiving duties – which did play a role Sunday – but also a fast-moving front of rapid barometric pressure changes brought a sensation of head implosion with suddenly swollen sinuses. Life in the Ohio Valley, a little strip of residential land between hills.
We had a lovely Thanksgiving community service with mmore than a half-dozen churches participating in either readings, sermon, choirs, organ music, acolytes, leading prayers or confession, or simply in attendance.

Can’t remember name of her character. We never find out if she was pregnant or if Anne Archer/Mike Douglas stay together but I remember that tone in Close’s voice when he’s clearly dumping her. It’s a warning. I don’t want to compare Prez Stompy Pants with a fictional character but there’s something clearly wrong with this man. It’s not just immaturity and inexperience, although both apply. There’s a smallness, a malevolence, an antipathy toward this country and anyone who doesn’t agree with him that is a real character flaw. Democrats need to stop pretending this is politics. This isn’t politics, this isn’t even policies or ideology, it’s a sickness. The only questions are: can America fully recover and is it worth saving the Democratic Party?
Obama went out of his way tonight to offend Middle America and the GOP and frankly anyone who doesn’t adore him. Is he being such a jerk to antagonize the GOP into doing something stupid or is he simply a jerk?
The really scary part is: what is wrong with us that we tolerate him and the lying media that cover for him.
Another historic event under Obama http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/under-obama-u.s.-personal-freedom-ranking-slips-below-france/article/2556322

“Doctor, what are we going to do about this dangerous virus from Africa?
And he said, “I don’t know, at least he has only two more years in office.”
Yeh I think he was born in Hawaii but pretended to be from Kenya to sound more cosmopolitan and to gain admittance to the Ivy League schools as a foreign student [in his own words he admits he took drugs and had bad grades so how did he get a transfer to Columbia after 2 barren years at Occidental?] but I strongly suspect he had dual citizenship to the US and Indonesia when his mom remarried and he was a child. It only makes sense. Dual citizenship at any time disqualifies anyone from POTUS. Funny how the file on his passport was broken into soon after it began to look as if he might actually have a chance to win the 2008 Dem primary. But the joke above, still haha.
Obama and the left keep emulating old European policies. They looked good for a while but socialism never holds up to a close look for very long. This did help the Labour party win elections and take control for a while so I guess that’s all Obama cares about. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/immigration/7198329/Labours-secret-plan-to-lure-migrants.html

http://I got this from http://www.powerlineblog.com/archives/2014/11/hitler-finds-out-field-marshall-gruber-spilled-the-beans.php, who evidently got it from http://pitchforkpatriots.wordpress.com/2014/11/18/hitler-finds-out-field-marshal-gruber-spilled-the-beans/
Or nearly anyone else in the MSM. The few that do mention it, such as Chuck Todd, dismiss it as old or meaningless. It’s sure as heck not meaningless to me. If fact, it’s nearly Biblical in its implications. Nearly. Not quite.
They all friggin lied to us about this whole entire bill, lied about everything so they could cram it down our throats and change the American economy and culture. Not to mention raise taxes from some of us, after saying it wouldn’t. Liberals: there’s never enough tax money for their nanny-state, big government spending. More, more more. A lying administration. A corrupt government. A fiscally irresponsible government. A compliant media that ignores all questions or wrongdoing from Obama and the Dems.
Always trying to turn us into socialist Europe, when it’s painfully clear that’s failing over there. Why follow the sheep over the hill?
Been busy with caregiving duties most of day but I meant to post something about IMD.
I didn’t see a post on International Men’s Day over at Dr Helen but she has an excellent book on men that I can recommend entitled Men on Strike : http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1594036756/ref=as_li_qf_sp_asin_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=1594036756&linkCode=as2&tag=wwwviolentkicom
Her regular website is here: http://pjmedia.com/drhelen/
Most people played it straight but William Jacobson had fun with the day. Let me link to him here: http://legalinsurrection.com/2014/11/8-reasons-to-celebrate-men-on-international-mens-day//#more.
Go read all 8 reasons to celebrate men, maybe link to some of the dismal PC’ers who want to turn the day into ‘male privilege’ crap if you need to beat your head against the wall. Then go show your appreciation for the man [men] in your life.
Here’s #1 of reasons:
1. Men grow beards and beards are hot
but my favorite is #4, which is definitely true of both my dad and my husband:
4. Men always know how to have a good time
My local newspaper The Daily Insult, actually the Daily Independent, is your typical modern chain-owned liberal newspaper. It’s owned by a Canadian corporation and they’re especially insulting because they pretend they’re not liberal. Today they had two especially annoying articles that they plastered on the front page. You can always tell if an article helps Democrats or not: Is it prominently displayed? Is it downplayed or totally ignored? If displayed prominently, it helps Dems.
The first article is a front page article that also garnered multiple across-the-paper back page prominence and concerned yet another lawsuit by Appalachian Voices and presumably KFTC [Kentuckians For The Commonwealth, an uber liberal organization formed by a University of Chicago social worker who's moved on to community organizing in Va] against a coal company. The voters of KY reelected coal-supporting Mitch McConnell but as Obama used to say, hey, there’s more than one way to skin a cat. Of course, Obama also told the GOP that if you don’t like his policies then go win an election but he was obviously lying about that. Greenie organizations receive national and international money and training from lefty/green groups and foundations then join up with the EPA, often using taxpayer money, to sue fossil fuel companies or manufacturers and kill development and jobs, especially in Eastern Kentucky. They’re self-righteous about it all; personally I believe there’s an unspoken goal to turn most of Eastern KY into a big national park/forest and stop all mining, logging, development, etc and force us into cities, a la Agenda 21. I’m betting that after a while the US government will allow limited development and mining to the likes of George Soros, who would have snapped up bankrupt companies here for a song.
Hey, it’s not paranoia or conspiracy theory when you keep being right.
The paper also had front page articles about how helpful ObamaCare has been to Eastern Kentucky, singing up people left and right, and saving the newly insured so much money while creating some jobs. We can thank Dem Gov Steve Beshear, who I predict will enjoy a future in some Dem consulting/lobby firm. Too bad the newly registered are mostly Medicaid and the subsidies are paid by we taxpayers without any option on our part. No mention on how KY, like other states, will be forced to pay for all these new Medicaid enrollees in 2017. No word on the fact that Beshear will no longer be governor as of January, 2017 or that the state has experienced budget shortfalls since the 2008 recession or that we’re facing a disaster of baby boomer state employees retiring in a grossly-underfunded pension system. No explanation on why our health care system had to be destroyed or 15-20% of our national economy turned upside down just to enroll new people in a Medicaid program we already had or why the Dems lied about those of us already with insurance saving money and tax? what tax? you stupid voters.
Yeh, no word at all this week on the lies of the Obama administration on the ObamaCare bill or GruberGate. Sometimes what a newspaper doesn’t say is as important as what is does. Sins of omission. http://www.dailyindependent.com
Of course, it’s not just a local problem. There’s nothing unusual about fluctuating animal populations, including humans, but greenies used a temporary polar bear population drop to raise money and spread global warming panic. It’s not about the climate, it’s about money $$ and political power. http://wattsupwiththat.com/2014/11/19/newspapers-mislead-public-about-polar-bear-numbers/
Putting a phony green agenda before jobs and the economy is giving us a slow economy, fewer jobs, fewer full-time jobs, fewer well-paid jobs, a nation that can no longer get anything made or done, and a dwindling middle class.
