Change We Can Count On

"So let me be clear: Iran's nuclear and ballistic missile activity poses a real threat, not just to the United States, but to Iran's neighbors and our allies. The Czech Republic and Poland have been courageous in agreeing to host a defense against these missiles. As long as the threat from Iran persists, we will go forward with a missile defense system that is cost-effective and proven. If the Iranian threat is eliminated, we will have a stronger basis for security, and the driving force for missile defense construction in Europe will be removed."
                -President Barack Obama in Prague on April 5, 2009

Kanye West is a Racist

Ok, I don't really know if Kanye West is a racist or not, but that's the conclusion he came to in 2005 about President George W. Bush.

During "A Concert for Hurricane Relief," aired on NBC, West exclaimed, "George Bush doesn't care about black people." West came to that conclusion because the federal government was not evacuating black folks from New Orleans as fast as he thought they should. So the natural conclusion is that George Bush is a racist.

Well, ok. During Sunday evening's 2009 MTV Video Music Awards, West jump onto the stage and took the mic from country singer Taylor Swift while Swift (who is white) was accepting her "Best Female Video" award. West then blurted, "Yo Taylor, I'm really happy for you, I'll let you finish, but Beyonce has one of the best videos of all time. One of the best videos of all time!" Beyonce, of course, is black.

So that settles it. Kanye West doesn't care about white people. His statement on stage Sunday was a racist statement. He's a racist. It's all about race.

Of course, I don't really believe that West's outburst Sunday had anything to do with race. I really believe it was about an out-of-control, egotistical, celebrity individual. But I'm going to say that Kanye West is a racist and that his outburst was all about race. After all, that always works for the Left.

9-11 "Never Forget"

Pics from the Kokomo Area Tea Party

There was a great turnout this evening at the Kokomo area tea party. Here are a couple pictures of the "mobsters."

Obama's Next Czar?

Barack Obama's former green jobs' czar Van Jones was, among other things, a 9-11 conspiracy nut. In 2004 he signed's "Truth Statement" which called for inquiry into "unanswered questions that suggest that people within the current administration may indeed have deliberately allowed 9-11 to happen, perhaps as a pretext for war."

Van Jones has since resigned from his position in the Obama administration (in addition to being a "9-11 Truther," he was a radical black nationalist and self-proclaimed communist), but here's a suggestion for Jones' replacement: Charlie Sheen.

Yes, I'm talking about actor Charlie Sheen. In an open letter to President Obama, Sheen has requested a meeting with the President. The letter is in the form of a transcript of a fictional meeting between Sheen and Obama during which Sheen tries to convince the President to reopen the investigation into 9-11 and to investigate the possibility that the Bush administration allowed or perhaps even caused the events of 9-11. During the fictional meeting, Sheen tells the President, "9-11 has been the pretext for the systematic dismantling of our Constitution and Bill of Rights."

So Charlie Sheen is more than just a Hollywood actor. He's also a 9-11 conspiracy nut. I think that qualifies him for a czar position in the Obama administration.

Where Does the Buck Stop?

On March 16, 2006 Senator Barack Obama spoke on the floor of the U.S. Senate as part of the Senate debate on increasing the limit on the national debt.

Senator Obama said, “The fact that we are here today to debate raising America's debt limit is a sign of leadership failure… Leadership means that ‘the buck stops here.’ Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren.”

The leadership that Senator Obama was criticizing in 2006 was that of President Bush.

On February 17, 2009 President Obama signed the $789 billion stimulus bill, which included an increase of the limit on the national debt to $12.1 trillion. Now, the Obama administration has asked Congress to raise the debt limit again, saying that the $12.1 trillion limit set in February could be reached by mid-October.

Can we expect to hear President Obama admit that the limit on our national debt needing to be raised twice during his first year in office is “a sign of leadership failure”? Will the buck stop at the office of this President?

I doubt it.

"The Government Can" - by Tim Hawkins

One of the best parody videos I've seen. Hat tip to The Peter Heck Show, which is where I first heard this.

Kudos to The Kokomo Perspective

In the spirit of giving credit where credit is due, let me give kudos this week to The Kokomo Perspective. Last week I posted that the Perspective would not print a letter to the editor that I had submitted expressing an opposing view to a column the paper had printed which advocated Cap and Trade legislation as an answer to what the author called the "fact" of global warming. Two issues of the paper were published without printing the letter; therefore, I published the letter on this blog. Peter Heck also read the letter on The Peter Heck Show, for which I would like to say, "Thanks Peter."

Today, however, The Kokomo Perspective did publish the letter. My hope is that the people in the Kokomo area who read the letter will see that the so-called "fact" of global warming expressed in the original column is not fact at all; there is another side to the story that needs to be told. Thanks to The Kokomo Perspective for helping to tell that other side.
