Yes.  I am furiously clicking together the heels of my ruby red slippers (okay… green, badly worn, Crocs – but you get the point.)  We need to figure someway out of this parallel, bizzaro world that we find ourselves in and desperate times require desperate measures.

The heretofore unfathomable, unconscionable and unbelievable directive coming down from on high that has my panties all up in a wad is here.  To steal a page from F*** You Penguin,  Ho. Lee. SHIT!

Wambdi Wicasa, a Benedictine Father who co-founded The Blue Cloud Abbey in Marvin, South Dakota wrote:

A CONTRACT is an agreement made in suspicion. The parties do not trust each other, and they set “limits” to their own responsibility. A COVENANT is an agreement made in trust. The parties love each other and put no limits on their own responsibility.

Historically, the agreement with our service men and women has been one made in trust.  We have loved the persons who have boldly stood up and answered the call to defend our nation and consequently we have put no limits on our responsibility to taking care of them when they are unfortunate enough to need it.   The very notion that the men and women who have been injured on the field of battle, defending this country and our liberties are now not worthy of the finest, cost-free medical care that we can provide, is not only counterintuitive to our COVENANT,  it is frankly immoral and should be intollerable.  However, instead of taking the junior level bureacrat that came up with this horrific little gem out back and beating the ever living crap out of them for even giving voice to such an idea, the White House responded, “Hey! Now that sounds like an idea we can get behind!”

Oh, did I forget to mention that this is all in the works as a means to save a whopping $500M a year?  “What are we going to do with the money?” you ask.  Excellent question!  The bottom line is we need the cash.  Even though is seems like a small amount in relation to things like the $170 BILLLLLLLION we have already chucked into the raging bonfire formerly known as AIG, we have pressing needs that need to be met.  In fact, that $500M will knock out over half of the $900M that we pledged to the Palestinian Authority to rebuild the West Bank after they received the ass-beating that was due to them for lobbing rockets into Jerusalem.

Wait a second!  Couldn’t the money we are taking from our veterans go to support Hamas, the reigning terrorist group party in control of the West Bank?  NO!  Definitely not:

…The official added that the aid would not go to Hamas. The U.S. recognizes the West Bank-based government of Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas and has no formal contacts with the Islamic militant group Hamas, which runs a separate Palestinian administration in the Gaza Strip.  Money often is funneled into Gaza through international organizations such as the United Nations, or through Abbas’ government, which deposits it directly into Gazans’ bank accounts.

Whew! That was close!

…OHHHHHHHHHHHH CRAP!

On Tuesday, Abbas said a new national unity government that includes rival Hamas must be in place and internationally recognized as part of managing humanitarian aid for Gaza and elsewhere.  Reconciliation talks are scheduled to begin in Egypt on Wednesday between Hamas and Abbas’ Fatah movement.

Ho. Lee. Shit., indeed.

Excellent stuff on this abounds around the Web, however one that is particularly striking is here.  Thanks AoSHQ.

John How are you holding up (Senators Kerry and Obama)? Stewart thinks this is a crock of shit too:

<UPDATE, UPDATE>

Kabuki Backpedal Theater…

Scene opens on a flustered Robert Gibbs in the White House Press Briefing Room in mid response: “…Uh, did we say, ‘…make them pay for their benefits?’  What we meant to say was, ‘make them ‘gay’ for their benefits!’  I mean they are going to love their FREE benefits soooo much, they will be gay for them.  Shame on you for misunderstanding us.”

First – on the minute chance that anyone is still checking in periodically, let me apologize for my protracted absence.  As Louis wrote, life sometimes gets in the way and in my case that has especially been so.  My mother suffered a major stroke a little less than a month ago.  The past few weeks have been spent focusing on her care and transitioning her back home.  Thankfully, she is recovering nicely.  With continued rehabilitation, time and prayers, we expect her to make a full recovery.  

That being said, even if this crisis hadn’t happened, I cannot confidently state that I would have (or for that matter – could have) amassed enough energy, concentration, heart and fervor to blog much anyway.  The simple truth is that I am discouraged, disheartened, distraught, disincentivized and pretty much any other “dis” word that you could think of by the course that our country is finding itself on.  This frame of mind is not conducive to being creative, articulate and inspired.  Regardless, I am compelled to force myself into a renewed habit of putting my thoughts to “paper” in the hope that maybe something good, productive, inspiring and insightful might come of it.  So here we go…

As it has been so long and so much has transpired since my last post, I thought it would be best to compartmentalize my thoughts into several different posts over the next few days.

Today’s Topic: Rush Limbaugh

Rush has been targeted by the left and the media (sorry – redundant) as an evil ignoramus who is hell bent on the destruction of America by publicly wishing Dear Leader his worst.  By taking Rush’s comments that he wants Obama to fail out of context, the smear campaign (orchestrated by no less than the White House itself) is in full effect.  This obfuscation serves two purposes.  First it diverts the attention of the unwashed, inherently headline focused, masses to this kerfuffle while the Obama Administration sells our country to the lowest bidding foreign power.  Second, it distracts the Conservative Movement and the Republican Party (unfortunately there is a major difference between the two these days) from focusing in on and combating the common enemy of Big-Government Liberalism, and redirects attention to a futile and counterproductive in-fight where such “principled” spokesmen as HRIC (Head RINO in Charge) Steele and Newt “Wow! Thanks for the food. Can I now bite your hand” Gingrich lambast Rush as being incendiary and out of bounds. (Warning – both links are to HuffPost… You may need hot shower and extreme eye scrub once you visit… At the very least, wipe your feet before coming back in 😉 ) 

Disclaimer – I am not a Ditto-head.  I used to be a devotee of the man, however I must admit that I have not paid much attention to him as of late (“late” being the past 10 years or so).  It is not that I think him irrelevant, it is that I personally do not care for his self-aggrandizement.  I perceive it as buffoonish.  That being said (Sorry – I use that phrase a lot), the man is correct.  Obama’s policies (which are as far left as this country has ever witnessed) need to fail.  For if they succeed, we will no longer enjoy the liberties and opportunities that this nation has provided to us.  Every aspect of Obama’s agenda – uncontrolled and misdirected spending and inconceivable tax hikes during a recession, horrific policies on abortion, ESCR, and other life issues, ad hoc / half-baked policies regarding Gitmo and the War on Terror that will put our nation in grave danger and the eminent nationalization of health care system – drives us further down the path of European Socialist Democracy.  I too hope that our Lecturer in Chief fails.  I pray that he fails MISERABLY.  His policies must not stand and his administration must not succeed.

You know all of this self-righteous indignation would be ironic if the hypocrisy wasn’t so blatant… Just a few months ago, it was considered patriotic to denigrate our President.  In fact, the vitriolic spew leveled at President Bush was championed as the pinnacle of free speech and political discourse.  An entire cottage industry of t-shirts, bumper-stickers, placards and the like was born.  Cafe Press and other similar sites were churning out orders for the “Somewhere in Texas a Village is Missing its Idiot”, “When Clinton Lied, No One Died” and who could ever forget the dandy: “Bush, Pull Out Like your Daddy Should Have!” sticker? The principle stoker of this fire, James “Cletus” Carville, moments before the first plane hit the World Trade Center, himself stated that he hoped Bush would fail.  These same idiots are now crying foul that the most consistent and principled voice of modern conservatism disagrees with the most Liberal President ever?!??  Not to fear though.  I am sure that the above the fold, front page exposé on the hypocrisy of this whole episode is imminent.  Can someone check the New York Times Sunday edition for me?

Mission Accomplished (UPDATED)

I don’t have much to add to LAMayor’s take on President Bush’s record and ultimate legacy other than to say that I too believe he will be vindicated by history.  

However, not to take away from LAMayor’s “Church of Baseball”, but I believe that President Bush’s greatest accomplishment was that it has been 2,688 days since we have suffered a terrorist attack on our soil; which was absolutely inconceivable in the weeks and months that followed September 11, 2001.

For that I say:

Dear Mr. President,

The entire free world owes you their most sincere and unreserved gratitude for protecting us from another horror such as we experienced on 9/11.  No one will ever know the extent and the terrifying nature of the intelligence that you received on a daily basis.  I can only imagine the horrifying and gut-wrenching burden that you must have borne in every decision that you made to protect your charges.  Rest in the knowledge that you have served your country extraordinarily and that your legacy will reflect your honor, dignity and righteousness.

Thank you Mr. President.  From the bottom of my heart… Thank you.

If you would also like to leave a personal expression of gratitude for the 43rd President of the United States, click here.  The owners of this site will compile all of the comments left (over 12,000 thus far) and present them to the President in a leather bound volume at the dedication of his Presidential Library on September 11, 2011.

<UPDATE>

WOW!  Less than an hour after posting this, the number has risen to over 16,000!  I knew we had influence but, WOW!

What me worry?

Uh… Moe… I tried to warn you to take it down a notch.  But did you listen?  Nooooo.

I hope you have been working on your Yoga, you kooky little bastard, you…  It’s time for you to kiss your ass goodbye.

Here is a great idea for a War on Terror Bio-Pick:

The unbelievable, seemingly impossible, true story of a young, Chuck Norris’ Roundhouse Ass Kicking, Marine Marksman who goes 20 for 20, under heavy fire, while fighting off 250 Insurgents with his 29 brethren Marines.

Oh, that’s right… Might actually make money, rather than flop.  Don’t want to be war profiteers now, do we?

The Silver Star better be on order:

During the battle, the designated marksman single handedly thwarted a company-sized enemy RPG and machinegun ambush by reportedly killing 20 enemy fighters with his devastatingly accurate precision fire. He selflessly exposed himself time and again to intense enemy fire during a critical point in the eight-hour battle for Shewan in order to kill any enemy combatants who attempted to engage or maneuver on the Marines in the kill zone. What made his actions even more impressive was the fact that he didn’t miss any shots, despite the enemies’ rounds impacting within a foot of his fighting position.

God Bless the USMC.

H/T Ace.

Uh, Mahmoud… Buddy… Your flava of crazy, although waaaayyyy out there, has been relatively entertaining during the past few years.  I guess it was because although you are out-of-your-fricking-gourd-bat-poop-certifiably-insane, you have been a contained threat, affording the world the opportunity to laugh at you.   Essentially, under Bush, the world knew that you knew that America meant business.  Although your bravado has been extreme and your lunatic rantings have become, unfathomably, even more unhinged than ususal, everyone knew that Bush would not hesitate to unleash the gates of hell on your kooky little ass if you got too far out of line.  Consequently, our buddies over in Israel, have given you fairly wide latitude to “get your crazy on”… until now, that is…

Now, with an America tempered by the Concessionator-in-Chief, our good friends over in the Persian Gulf (the ones that you have promised to annihilate – you know the ones), they aren’t feeling so comfy with the idea of letting you roam free to do your evil, yet up til now, relatively harmless, bidding.  Soooooooo Mahmy… Maybe it’s time to take a step back, throw your hands up in the air and declare, “April Fools!”  If not, I think the “Infidels” are going to shove a few Jericho III’s up your heiney-hole

Looks like the “Zionist Vermin” mean bidness this time… My favorite clue comes directly from the Israeli Air Force Commander:

A strike against Iran’s nuclear facilities “is a political decision,” …. “Please understand that I do not want to get into details. I can only say this: It is not a technical or logistical question.”

In other words, Mahmo, this ain’t a matter of “Can they do it?”.  To steal a page from our recently elected demagogue: Yes, they can.

Time to start heading to the bunker.  Your goose is cooked.

Mr. Kmiec,

You were quite eloquent in your defense of Candidate Obama (now our Messiah-Elect) and adamant that his worldview would somehow rise above partisan politics and elevate the discourse to one where all views were acknowledged and given due consideration.  In your endorsement of the “One” you wrote:

 As a Republican and as a Catholic, I believe life begins at conception, and it is important for every life to be given sustenance and encouragement. As a Republican, I strongly believe that the Supreme Court of the United States must be fully dedicated to the rule of law and to the employ of a consistent method of interpretation that keeps the court within its limited judicial role. As a Republican, I believe problems are best resolved closest to their source and that we should never arrogate to a higher level of government that which can be more effectively and efficiently resolved below. As a Republican and a constitutional lawyer, I believe religious freedom does not mean religious separation or mindless exclusion from the public square.

In various ways, Sen. Barack Obama and I may disagree on aspects of these important fundamentals, but I am convinced, based upon his public pronouncements and his personal writing, that on each of these questions he is not closed to understanding opposing points of view and, as best as it is humanly possible, he will respect and accommodate them. 

So I ask you now… How is that working out for you?  This man, whom you deem to be “a person of integrity, intelligence, and genuine good will” has, through his minions (might I add, virulent partisan democrats Rahm Emmanuel and John Podesta – so much bipartisanship), declared that his first actions will be to rescind President Bush’s Executive Orders related to restrictions on ESCR and foreign aid to organizations that counsel women about the availability of abortion.  Full details here.

Oh wait… my bad… here is someone who’s views Barry O. is apparently “accommodating“:

ppcecileobama101108

Cecile Richards, president of Planned Parenthood Federation of America said her organization had been communicating with Obama’s transition staff almost daily. “We expect to see a real change,” the Washington Post reports.

Good thing the price of silver is on the rise.  Looks like you got 30 pieces coming your way.
