Obama’s Answer

Posted in Humor, Politics on June 25th, 2009

Little boys grow up to into adult males; sometimes they actually grow up into Men. A very small few grow up to be President of the United States. In all cases though the answers to questions they had as a boy will be reflected in the answers to questions they have as adults.

A Young Obama always had an answer; it was just always the same answer
Obama’s Answer: Government – Irrespective of the Question

President Obama was and is an intelligent person. He likely nearly always had a ready answer to questions as a boy. Sadly, given his current predilections, it was likely to have always been the same answer…

I call it the law of the instrument, and it may be formulated as follows: Give a small boy a hammer, and he will find that everything he encounters needs pounding.

— Abraham Kaplan

When the small boy with a hammer grows up into a Liberal POTUS with a federal government at his disposal all us end up being “nails” and the whole country ends up with a gigantic headache. 😉

Khamenei’s Blog

Web 2.0 and what is now called the “New Media” are swiftly becoming pervasive in the world. Even the Supreme Leader of Iran, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, has taken up blogging.

Of course, due to cultural and linguistic differences, the Ayatollah Khamenei, the Revolutionary Guard, and the Basij enforcers have a different definition of the world “Blogging.”

Obama’s A Sham – Wow!

Posted in Humor, Politics on June 23rd, 2009

You’ve got to admit, no matter what your opinion is of President Obama’s agenda or his job performance, that he’s one of the world’s greatest Pitchmen. He opens his mouth and so many of the masses buy whatever he’s selling; it’s incredible in a terrifying sort of way.

Barack Obama – ShamWow!

I just think that America would be better off if we saw Obama on infomercials and on the Home Shopping Channel Rather than on C-Span and the international media.

Also, sadly nothing that Obama is shilling comes with a money back guarantee; it’s a sold as-is with no warranties implied…
