With the markets continuing their free fall, Obama and our elected officials merrily
go about doing the people's business. They are laboring so hard on
our behalf that, in the interest of space, I've outlined all their latest efforts
in my column: 'Politicians
Fiddle While America Burns'.
Caution - don't read on a full stomach.
The media is pretty much ignoring the massive government encroachments on individuals
and the formerly free market, preferring to focus instead on continuing the national
conversation on Michelle's buff triceps
. Oh, and they've launched a national
contest to name the Obama's
Newsweek's latest cover
on how radical Islam is now a fact of life and how to live with it
competed with Oprah's exciting announcement that she would be sharing the cover
of O with - you guessed it - Michelle Obama! Newsweek one-upped them by featuring
an online interactive map of Israel
, labeling it 'Palestinian
Territory'. Oh, those wacky guys!
In the continuing assault on the family, married same-sex couples are suing the federal government
, claiming the act discriminates
against gay couples and is unconstitutional because it denies them access to federal
benefits. And in Britain, new regulations
mean that a mother could nominate another
woman to be her child's 'father'. The 'father' does not need to be genetically related
to the baby. Does this mean men are now obsolete?
Continuing along progressive lines, a US clinic is now offering designer babies
. As in: making certain traits like eye and
hair color multiple choice for mommie. Can you imagine a world populated by millions
of Angelina Jolie's?
Speaking of Angelina, her wannabe, the infamous octomom, Nadya Duleman, has officially
passed on an offer of free 24-hour nursing care
for her kids by a nonprofit
group after they ruled out her request to do a reality show around her childrens'
care. Not to worry, octomom may still decide to avail herself of the free care -
she may just decide to accept the $1 million offer to star in hardcore porn, instead.
For the children, doncha know.
Mattel is releasing a new Barbie covered in tattoos
. She's called "Totally Stylin Tattoos
Barbie" and will hit shelves ready for spring. I have it on good authority that
the tattoos are permanent. Not to worry, the government has allocated some of our
tax dollars for tattoo removal.
On the left coast, San Francisco has launched a Healthy Penis campaign
. The budget for the program this
year is $122,575. It pays for health staffers walking around in giant penis costumes
to promote syphillis testing.
A drug court in central Pennsylvania is facing criticism for lending a
woman in treatment $275
to have an abortion.
Proving that it is indeed possible to fool most of the people most of the time,
by more than a two-to-one margin, Americans believe the Democratic Party is better
suited to getting the country out of a recession over the Republican Party, according
to the latest Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll
On a serious note, I've come across a couple of pretty scary video clips. The first
is a trailer to the
, 'Homegrown Jihad', produced by Christian Action.org. It
shows the training camps that are actually promoting and teaching radical Islam
Here you can view
Nation of Islam's youth drill at Mosque #7 in New York. Farrakhan's nation-wide,
grown-up military group, a Brown Shirt-like paramilitary group is called the Fruit
of Islam. These kids are being programmed to hate and kill. Right here in America.
Maybe someone should start spreading the word.
There's lots more news but I've decided to cut this issue short. The sun is finally
shining and I've had enough of all this crazy stuff for today.
Till next week, try to keep smiling,
