Party Hearty

It's New Year's Eve, roughly 3:00 pm ET, and it's colder than a pair of testicles in liquid oxygen. I don't know what the new year will bring, but I do know that whatever it is, Barack Obama is still our president so don't sing and dance just yet. At least he will not be running again, if he follows the Constitution.

Seriously though, I hope 2014 turns out to be a great year for you and our country. The one way to stack the deck on that happening is to make sure you vote in the mid-terms and put as many conservatives in office as possible.

If you're going out to party tonight, please take care and don't get into an accident--I don't want to have to do the paperwork. But again, seriously, please don't drink and drive--it isn't worth the cost no matter how you look at it.

If you will be celebrating tonight with a loved one, that's wonderful. Hold them close and kiss them when the New Year rings in, unless, of course, they have herpes or trench-mouth. 

If you plan to celebrate with your family, and they happen to be liberals, I am so sorry to hear that, but be nice--they're still your family. Of course, families tend tend to think alike politically, and except for my mindless "I love Hillary" sister in Boston, I don't know of any families with strong opposing views. I know they're out there, but I don't even want to know about them--I have enough with Susie, my sister.

Happy and healthy New Year!


The Meanstream Media: the real racists

Freedom of the press; it's guaranteed in our Constitution. There's a very clear and highly important reason this is in our legal system; it was supposed to be the watchdog of all branches of government, in particular, the executive branch. But today, the press has changed its role by becoming not the watchdog, but a guard dog for the left. And it isn't only what they report, it also has to do with what they don't. It also has to do with the difference in how they deal with both sides of the aisle.

If you only watched MSNBC during the Benghazi attack and its aftermath, you might believe the entire situation was caused by a video that was seen by no less than 300 people worldwide. Next, you would have been convinced that the man who made the video had no right to do so--there is no such thing as negative opinion, or freedom of expression when it goes against Islam. Make fun of Muhammed, a guy who "married" a six year old, and you will be killed.

And the Award Goes to Hillary

I think anyone would be hard-pressed to come up with another woman who has won as many awards as Hillary Clinton has ever since coming of age. It all began in 1983 when she won Arkansas' Woman of the Year, an award handed out by the Arkansas Democrat, a left-leaning paper. The very same year Hillary won "Headliner of the Year," gifted to her by the Arkansas Press Association. The following year, she was named Arkansas (Young) Mother of the Year and honorary doctorates followed that for years to come. In both 1988 and 1991, Hillary was named by National Law Journal as one of the top 100 influential lawyers in America, and they never mentioned how, when serving on the House Judiciary Committee under Jerry Zeifman way back in 1974, that she was fired from her job and given a few choice labels. Perhaps they never mentioned it because it came before all those awards.

Looking Back at Nothing

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas Day yesterday and you all feel at peace in your life. As the year comes to an end next week, I look back at all that has taken place and realize that what's more relevant to what has taken place is that which has not taken place. Let me explain.

Sliding Along with the Law

If unions can get Obamacare waivers, and people on Capital Hill can get waivers, and certain people in Nancy Pelosi`s congressional district can get waivers, what makes Obamacare a good thing if waivers are considered favors? People who can get out of it, get out of it. People in power who can get their friends or constituents out of it, get them out of it. So why do we need it? Who really wants it? Obamacare, what is it good for? Absolutely nothing.

The truth actually seems to be that not many people really want to be forced into Obamacare, but tough; many people on the left want you to have it. In fact, they want people who aren't going to actually need it, to get it first. They have to do that so they can pay for those older folks, people like me, who will need it and use it and have those youngsters pay for it.

Obamacare and Other Oxymorons

Jumbo shrimp, military intelligence--you've heard these oxymoron terms, but now we have the Affordable Care Act, which isn't affordable, and Obamacare, which doesn't care about you at all.

I saw a tweet on Twitter a little while ago that says Valerie Jarrett (the Iranian born leader of the USA) claims Barack Obama will sign up for Obamacare today. Maybe yes, maybe no; it's hard to believe anything that comes out of Washington these days, but if Obama does, in fact, sign up for his signature legislation, will Valerie Jarrett, Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi, and Harry Reid follow suit? I cannot wait to find out.

Today is "Deadline Day" to sign up for this socialist program. I know that older sheeple are on the bandwagon, but few young people are willing to tolerate the long web delays and are willing to pay the small fine for not signing up. And why should they--it doesn't make sense when they aren't going to need it, for the most part. 

It's 11:15 AM. I suspect Pajama Boy is awake, drinking his cocoa, booting up his laptop, and getting ready to sign up; he'll shower tomorrow. He can rest assured that his premiums will save him, on average, $2500 this year. Or not.

The deductibles are the closest we will come to reinstating our space program--they're astronomical. The monthly premiums are generally more for the general public. I just can't wait for Obama to unilaterally declare that undocumented immigrants will be entitled to Obamacare supplements, at the taxpayer's expense, of course.

Obama is the Big Kahuna

My fellow folks, I'm speaking ta you today from beautiful Hawaii, the state where I was allegedly born. I know the mainland, as we alleged Hawaiians call where most of you live, is being pummelled by snow and ice and tornadoes, I can assure you that no such problem exists here in Paradise. 

Everything is Political

Nothing anyone can say will get by without offending someone. Everything seems to be politicized lately. Everything bothers at least one group of people.

The latest Colorado school shooter was a socialist. Phil Robertson is homophobic, in spite of the fact that he used to bible to make his statement about gays. The Washington Redskins name is an insult to native Americans who used to be called Indians but that offended people from India and Indians born here. The New York and San Francisco Giants offends little people who used to be called midgets but were offended by that title. The Broncos, Panthers, and Jaguars probably offends PETA, an organization who likes critters more than they like people. Everyone is so easily offended about everything.

Aren't You Glad GLAAD is so Damn Tolerant?

A&E, as you may have heard, has suspended the Duck Dynasty patriarch, Phil Robertson, from the reality TV show for voicing his opinion to  GQ Magazine. The interviewer asked about Phil`s thoughts regarding homosexuality as well as his thoughts about how southern blacks faired when he was growing up. A&E was well aware of Robertson`s beliefs, but when they got heat from GLAAD, they cowered away like mice from pussy cats. You see, Robertson believes what the Bible says about homosexuality, (that it`s a sin), and the forces at GLAAD weren`t glad that he said it. The not-so-glad GLAAD folks got all in a tizzy and may have pressured A&E to drop the axe on Phil Robertson. 
GLAAD states on their website that they work "with print, broadcast and online news sources to bring people powerful stories from the LGBT community that build support for equality. And when news outlets get it wrong, GLAAD is there to respond and advocate for fairness and accuracy." From this, we can surmise that Robertson's interpretation of the Bible and his beliefs are a misunderstanding of God's word, is incorrect, according to GLAAD. Being gay is okay according to the Bible and GLAAD. Therefore, in order to provide "fairness and accuracy," GLAAD has pressured A&E to fire him. Makes perfect nonsense.

Warm, Fuzzy, ObamaCare

There seems to be no limit to the lengths this administration will go to push ObamaCare down our collective throats. Now we have "Pajama Boy," a Millennial be-speckled lad in red onesies, holding a cup of what I believe must be cocoa, shaken, not stirred, with little marshmallows floating on top, waiting for his government check to arrive.  He apparently plans to attack the Times crossword puzzle and devour a gluten-free cookie while his mother irons his clothes.

Muslim Link Ya Think?

I just got my copy of Muslim Link, a local free paper that focuses on convincing the public that Islam is a wonderful religion of peace and love, blue birds and burqas. Ah, if only that were so.

You might believe that I don't like Muslims but you'd be wrong. Like the saying goes, some of my best friends are Muslims, and that's the typical stereotype of someone who is covering up their real feelings. However, some of my wife's family are Muslims and my wife once was of that ilk, but left the religion of Muhammad, peas be up in him, long ago, and for that, she can be put to death, Islam-style. (A simple, low-budget stoning, where she is buried up to her chest and the villagers throw stones at her head until she's dead.)

If Lies Were Money, There'd Be No National Debt

You can get more accurate information from a Chinese fortune cookie than you can from Healthcare.gov. At least the fortune cookie company can't compromise your personal information so that when you get home after a hard days work, you'll find the home still belongs to you And you can't eat ObamaCare.

At some level, I hate to admit, the American public is getting what they voted for. But to make things better, they need to feel the pain of ObamaCare so, like Pelosi might say, they can pass on it before they need to know what's not covered. 

If you like your doctor, perhaps you can meet your doctor for a drink or a game of golf. Heck, you might even run into Barry on the links. If you like your health care, that's nice. Maybe you'll like what they have in store for you too. Maybe not. But hey, we're all in this together. Like the Billy Joel song says, "And we will all go down together."

But Barack didn't lie. He misspoke. He had a misunderstanding of the facts. He misinterpreted reality. He repeated what he heard on the news. It was not his fault. It was the GOP and other things starting with "G."

Finally, Obama's statement about keeping your doctor and coverage was dubbed the "Lie of the Year," by Politifact. What might have been even more interesting would be to come up with Obama's biggest lies of each year he has been in office. Just imagine if all of Obama's high echelon staff grew longer noses every time they told a lie to the public: Carney would accidentally kill Biden with his nose while Biden was in the middle of giving Obama a nasal enema; and I hate to say what would happen to Michelle--use your imagination.

But seriously, let's do what George Carlin once suggested: let's not vote anymore, "it only encourages the bastards."

Happy Holy Day

Holiday is coming and the children have hung their holiday stockings by the mantle and their balls and figurines on the holiday tree. In about two weeks, the country will celebrate the birth of Jesus of Nazareth, aka the Christ. The church mass celebrating His birthday (I am capitalizing His name and pronoun at my own legal risk) is known by some as Christmas, but Freedom from Religion demands we drop that term and call it the "Holiday" season. The word "holiday" comes from the two words "holy" and "day." If it's a holy day, there must be a reason for it.

Atheists become most offensive around Christmas and other Christian holidays. They seem so angry over Christianity. They deal a lot better with Muslims, or at least they don't seem to be as outspoken over Eid or Bakrid, and they never disrespect Mohammad like they do Jesus.

I wonder why. If you have any ideas on this subject, please feel free to comment. All comments will be held in strict confidence, if you know what I mean.

My latest novel, Jihad Joe, is about Islamic terrorism and suspense.  In it I challenge the precepts of the religion through my protagonist, Zed Nill, a journalist, captured by terrorists and who is destined to be killed if the American President refuses to release three Gitmo prisoners.  Of course, American policy demands we never give in to terrorists, and for Zed, the clock is ticking.

Kim Jung Un Executes Uncle Jung Without Dennis Rodman`s Input

"Don't buy any green bananas"
Seoul, North Korea: The uncle of Kim Jung Un, fearless leader of North Korea and BFF to dauntless cross-dressing Dennis Rodman, had his beloved uncle, Jung Song Thaek put to death for treason. Uncle Jung (no relation to famous psychologist Carl Jung) was considered to be the 2nd most powerful man in all North Korea. Now the number 3 man will become number two and four will be three, and so on.

Why Not Blame the Jews--Jihadists Do

Blame the Jews. Newly elected Brooklyn councilwoman, Laurie Cumbo does. She believes that blacks resent the success of Jewish people and this is why they have been targeted in the crime whose diminutive, less serious term is known as the "knockout game." 

Ms. Cumbo, who is black posted on her Facebook page that black residents in Crown Heights, Brooklyn, are afraid of being "pushed out" by their Jewish landlords. Now that is definitely a new, neat way of looking at what is motivating these young thugs to attacking unsuspecting, often elderly Jewish women and men. They are afraid they will lose their apartments. It makes perfect sense; if I want to remain living in my current apartment house, the way to ensure that is to beat the crap out of my landlord, or at least do it symbolically. That's like a damn James Joyce novel. To be fair, Ms. Cumbo stated that she admires Jewish people, but added "The accomplishments of the Jewish community triggers feelings of resentment, and a sense that Jewish success is not also their success." You mean to tell me that if I break a world record in the New York City Marathon that record doesn't include everyone else along the sidelines? Okay, maybe not the Jews, but what about all the others who stood there and watched me succeed--don't they deserve credit too?

She He It

The Associated Press and a number of liberal liberal arts colleges want to make language more user-friendly to those who are easily offended by gender stereotypes. The AP has stated:

"The 'she' and 'hers' that dominate introductions are keeping third-person company with 'they,' 'ze' and other alternatives meant to convey a more generous notion of gender."

Martin Bashir Flushed Away

Martin Bashir, that lovable, cuddly, and trendy, British "journalist" has decided to call it quits from MSNBC since suggesting almost three weeks ago, that someone should defecate in Sarah Palin's mouth. He also called her an idiot on that broadcast, as well as others. I wonder why he's resigning--he's just being his old, liberal self.

Bashir issued a statement to Mediate via email that read: 

"After making an on-air apology, I asked for permission to take some additional time out around the Thanksgiving holiday.

Upon further reflection, and after meeting with the President of MSNBC, I have tendered my resignation. It is my sincere hope that all of my colleagues, at this special network, will be allowed to focus on the issues that matter without the distraction of myself or my ill-judged comments.

I deeply regret what was said, will endeavor to work hard at making constructive contributions in the future, and will always have a deep appreciation for our viewers--who are the smartest, most compassionate and discerning of all television audiences. I would also wish to express deepest gratitude to my immediate colleagues, and our contributers, (sic) all of whom have given so much of themselves to our broadcast."

Uh Oh ObamaCare

You can't swing a Democratic donkey by the tail without hitting an ObamaCare problem. The problems effect the public as well as the king. Now the king wants the people to come up with our ideas to help him with ObamaCare. Does he want our input so he can blame us for its failure like he blames the Republicans for magically screwing up the website? If the GOP actually had the powers needed to remotely screw up the ObamaCare website, Obama would have never been elected in the first place. So what are some of the problems with ObamaCare?

First and foremost, Obama lied. I don't care how the New York Times tries to spin it with: "he misspoke," "he told an untruth," "he was factually incorrect," "he didn't mean it that way," he deliberately lied to the American public because he knew that many many people would not be able to keep their doctors, period, nor would they be able to keep their healthcare plans, period. He freaking lied. People do not trust him. That's not good for the Democrats.

Second, the number of insurance company options available are anemic. There are so few choices and you can't even shop for choices until you've actually given your personal information and have signed up.

Third, speaking about giving your personal information is extremely risky, according to the four "white hat hackers" who testified to congress about this issue. Not one of them when asked, said he would be willing to put his personal information online at Healthcare.gov. Why should we?

Fourth, ObamaCare is acting almost like a shill for Medicaid. Millions of people are being enrolled from the site. One man, a retired owner of a $5 million home, was told that in order to enroll, he would have to do so with Medicaid as his provider. If you know anything about Medicaid, the quality of care is horrible.

Fifth, ObamaCare has negative incentive for upward mobility. If you get a raise, you pay more. If you get married, you pay more. If you are a small business owner and want to expand, there's a disincentive to hire more than 29 people.

Sixth, ObamaCare favors the secular sector and disrespects the beliefs of the religious sector. This has fast become a trend in America and it's a disgraceful trend. The group Freedom from Religion is the biggest perpetrator of attacking religious values, and Obama seems to be a big fan. One can only wonder what the outcome would be if Islam was staunchly against birth control and abortion, and that included shops that sold Islamic items. I suspect the secular left would do as much to ensure that they would be forced to provide employees of, say, an Islamic book store with Sandra Fluke condoms, as they are willing to stop a stoning of women.

Finally, business owners will tend to hire people part time in order to avoid having to pay for healthcare. It would be poor business sense to do otherwise.

It's obvious that when a website is put together in the private sector, like the ObamaCare website was, heads would roll like a bowling alley on Saturday night. But more than this, there is more to ObamaCare than just the website that sucks. What should be obvious is that a government that has over 3 years and more than $600 million to put a website together puts out what we have seen, you can be certain that the rest of the planning will be similarly suck-worthy. 

President Obama has gone on the offense today, (which means he's offensive, as usual), but now he pledges this law will not be abolished while he still is president. I say "let it burn." Let people sign up; let it go into effect; and let people judge whatever it turns out to be. I suspect it will turn out to be exactly what the Obama administration supports: an abortion.

My latest novel, Jihad Joe, is about Islamic terrorism and suspense.  In it I challenge the precepts of the religion through my protagonist, Zed Nill, a journalist, captured by terrorists and who is destined to be killed if the American President refuses to release three Gitmo prisoners.  Of course, American policy demands we never give in to terrorists, and for Zed, the clock is ticking.

The Most Something or Other President Ever

Why was Barack Obama elected to the highest office on planet Earth? What did he do to deserve what so many others could only dream about? Why do some on the left still think he can walk on water and shoot a decent 3 point shot? Charisma.
Max Weber, a German sociologist, said charisma is a “certain quality of an individual, by virtue of which one is “set apart” from ordinary people and treated as endowed with supernatural, super human, or at least specifically exceptional powers--these were qualities that are regarded as divine origin or as exemplary.”
