Obama retains his halo in this AP photo of May 6, 2009
Culture Watch, Vol. 66

The media continues to wax rhapsodic on everything Obama, leaving the conservative press to report on the actual details and probable consequences of the broad 'change' he is foisting on an unsuspecting nation. The old media has given up any pretense of objectivity and is now actively involved in Media Malfeasance. The halo Obama wears in this AP photo is a perfect example. 
Meanwhile, the Obama administration continues to steamroll Obama's new budget proposal that sets a historic record deficit of $1.8 trillion. Four times larger than its ever been. Your grand kids are going to be paying for all this stuff. 

The media, following Obama's cue, deflects attention from this historic spending by concentrating on the $17 billion of proposed cuts. That comes to .05% of his budget, showing, once again, that it is still possible to fool most of the people most of the time.

Some of the 'wasteful spending and unnecessary programs' Obama is claiming as budget cuts include:
* Nixing aid to states to pay for jailing illegal immigrants
* Nixing abstinence only sex-education
* Cutting in half a benefits program for the families of slain police and safety officers 
* Eliminating new funding for advanced-generation equipment to detect nuclear weapons and radiological materials at U.S. borders and ports and around New York City .
* canceled plans to extend the border fence along the U.S.-Mexico border beyond the 670 miles already completed or planned.
Obama proposed on Thursday nearly doubling funds to enforce U.S. tax laws next year, with an aim of more than quadrupling funding for tax compliance to $2.1 billion within five years. This, after adding 20,000 new bureaucrats to the Pentagon -that's paper pushers, not warriors. Oh, and he'll be beefing up our Diplomatic Corps also. Just because diplomacy hasn't yet worked, doesn't mean it won't now Obama is in charge. 
In a massive payback to union contributors, the Obama administration has threatened to rescind billions in stimulus money if Gov. Schwarzenegger and lawmakers do not restore wage cuts to unionized home healthcare workers.
The National Institutes of Health (our tax dollars) are paying researchers to cruise six bars in Buenos Aires to find out why gay men engage in risky sexual behavior while drunk -- and just what can be done about it.

The government will begin taking land from seven property owners so that the Flight 93 memorial can be built in time for the 10th anniversary of the 2001 terrorist attacks, the National Park Service said. That's right, the government can now just take any formerly private property it wants. Getting scared yet?

The Consumer Product Safety Commission reminds the American people that, thanks to the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act, the government is totally in charge of your yard sale.

Maine's governor signed a freshly passed bill Wednesday approving gay marriage, making it the fifth state to approve the practice, which, by the way, is opposed by the majority of Americans.
Hawaii's state Senate overwhelmingly approved a bill Wednesday to celebrate "Islam Day" -- over the objections of a few lawmakers who said they didn't want to honor a religion connected to Sept. 11.
Gov. Deval Patrick’s free wheels for welfare recipients program is revving up as the keys to donated cars loaded with state-funded insurance, repairs and even AAA membership are handed out to get them to work.
From the fake but accurate files: Oprah and CNN have decided that there is a growing "new" trend in American sexual relations, claiming that "women are leaving men for other women." No proof has been provided, but hey, its on TV so it must be true.

In a historic first, Uncle Sam has supplanted sales, property and income taxes as the biggest source of revenue for state and local governments. I'm getting depressed. Even though there is much more to report, I prefer to skip ahead to the:

US scientists say they have successfully reversed the effects of Alzheimer's with experimental drugs.
New applications for jobless benefits plunged to the lowest level in 14 weeks, a possible sign that the massive wave of layoffs has peaked.

The Nevada Attorney General and the Secretary of State have filed a criminal complaint against ACORN for compensating employees to register voters based on a quota system. They're also cracking down on ACORN in eight other states. Hey, its a start.
A measure that would prevent radio and television broadcasters from airing advertising between 6 a.m.-10 p.m. related to erectile dysfunction has popped up again in Congress. My take: it will be voted down - after all, the guys that buy these aids have got to be Obama voters:)
Tennessee: A new law is under consideration that would say if firearms are manufactured and sold inside the state of Tennessee, federal gun law would not apply.
In a classic case of getting what you asked for: Executives at the Big Four broadcast networks are seething that Obama has cost them about $30 million in cumulative ad revenue this year with his three primetime news conference pre-emptions.

At, you can send a grade to individual Members of Congress — an A, B, C, D, or F — and write a letter explaining your grade.
You, as a citizen, may enter a Freedom of Information request. Although there is no standard form to use when requesting records from the U.S. Department of State, you may find the FOIA Request Letter Generator here helpful in structuring your request.
The National Rifle Association is still offering free one-year memberships. No strings.
In keeping with my desire to leave you with a smile on your face, I include this cute video. This cat actually says Hello....

Till next week, keep smiling. Remember, history shows that when you give liberals enough rope, they end up hanging themselves.
