Calling Biden BS on bin Laden story

So Biden, Hillary, and everyone except Leon Panetta vetoed the bin Laden raid? Baloney. This little piece of “news” is BS intended to 1] keep the bin Ladin kill in the spotlight 2] make Obama look tougher on national security and 3] give blowback to the snickers from many of us that a 5-year-old kid would have authorized the kill. No, says Biden, the decision by Obama was gutsy and he had to go against most of his team. Yeah, I guess that’s why he took 16 hours to sleep on it.

I say it’s election-year BS. For 99.9% of America, we would have taken about 16 seconds to authorize it. I’m impressed with the Seals, not Obama here. And I’ll always believe the Biden Big Mouth and Obama administration bragging revealed way too much about the kill mission, and led to the heliocopter takedown in Afghanistan that killed so many of our Seals.

It’s just talk. The elite 1% mostly support Obama. Victor Davis Hanson is always a good read and here’s some of what he says:

“Most universities are far more unfair to their part-time teachers than Wal-Mart is to their greeters. Robert Redford does not seem concerned that at least a few of his fellow HuffPo writers are paid almost nothing for their work. Al Gore would never ask an out-of-work pipeline worker to hitch a ride on one of his private jet swings. Hollywood predicates much of its production on the basis of non-union locations……”

Hollywood studios also use some of that funny-money tax rules to save on taxes and pay those big salaries to the stars.

Hillbilly pizza

I’ve had this recipe a long time. It’s lowfat and came from Redbook magazine. They called it Polenta Pizza. Hah! Polenta is just a foreign word for cornmeal mush. Man, I’ve had fried cornmeal mush throughout my life with just about anything you can imagine and I’m changing the name here.

Cornmeal Mush Pizza

1 c water      1/2 tsp salt     1 c yellow corn meal

8 oz can tomato sauce     2 T tomato paste

1/8 tsp garlic powder     1/2 tsp dried basil

8 oz part-skim mozzarella, grated

1 green pepper, seeded & cut into rings

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Grease 12″ pizza pan. Boil water; remove from heat and add salt and corn meal. Stir until all the water is absorbed and cornmeal is a thick, moist paste. Using wet fingertips, press corn meal mixture evenly onto prepared pan. Reduce heat to 350 and bake 20 min until dry & slightly crisp on edges.  Mix sauce, paste, garlic & basil. Sprinkle half the cheese over corn meal crust; pour sauce over cheese & top with remaining cheese. Arrange pepper on top & bake 15 minutes until cheese melts. Serves 4

Here’s what I changed: I skipped the tomato sauce, paste, garlic powder & dried basil and used a bottled prepared spaghetti sauce. Make life easier and it’s just as good. I didn’t use a green pepper because a single green pepper costs about a dollar at the grocery. I mostly use my peppers from my garden that I froze last summer but that would be yucky on pizza so I used Kalamata olives in oil instead. Instead of using my fingertips, I used my pizza dough roller, dampened with water. Occasionally, you don’t need to use a full cup of cornmeal. The dough here is stiffer than a wheat pizza dough  but it’s sticky and it needs to be a little moist to keep from baking into cardboard.

Woo hoo!

The first of my daffodils have appeared. This is one of the happiest day of my year since it means spring is really and truly around the corner. Who needs some rodent sticking his head out of the ground when you can have flowers instead?

Taranto strikes again

Putting Everything in Perspective

  • “I want to cut his nuts out.”–Jesse Jackson on Barack Obama, quoted by the Chicago Tribune, July 10, 2008
  • “The ultimate insult.”–Jesse Jackson on Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer’s pointing her finger at Barack Obama, quoted by the Chicago Sun-Times, Jan. 28, 2012

Just a small tidbit of Taranto funny wisdom. What? You aren’t reading James Taranto’s Best of the Web, and here I make it so easy for you by listing him on my blogroll.

Obama and his liberal followers keep wanting to turn us into a European socialist model. We’re getting there and it’s working out about as well here as it turned out there.  Compassionate entitlement spending is bankrupting us and making our citizens dependent upon the government.  Note that the source of the chart below is the US OMB.

I’ve gotten this a few times over the past several months via email. Doug Ross reminds us we have to stop pretending we can’t understand all those big, big numbers.
