Sea Kitten Taxonomy

Posted in Humor, Society on January 26th, 2009

PETA, in their bottomless stupidity, ignorance – yes, they manage to be both somehow – and arrogance wants to re-educate America’s children. In an effort to twist the minds of America’s youths PETA wants to indoctrinate them into calling fish “Sea Kittens.” But, if the Liberals actually allow PETA’s agenda into the schools and classrooms of America, what will they teach our children? What exactly is a Sea Kitten?

Felis Marinus

Common Names(s):Sea Kitten, Oceanic Split Tail, Yummy Things

Felis Marinus is a family of sea creatures that encompasses a variety of individual genera and species. There is a great deal of variance in the physiognomy, not only between species but also between individual specimens of the same species.

In an effort to further our children’s “education” I’ve provided sample images of some of the more well established branches of the Sea Kitten family. Biology is part of America’s core curriculum after all. 😉

Not exactly NSFW, but I put the lesson in biology, taxonomy, and species identification after the break just in case.

US Reparations Package?

Posted in Politics on January 25th, 2009

It’s fairly old news that Obama, leading the pack of Liberals in Congress, is planning on “providing” a $825 billion stimulus package that is focused on repairing, expanding, and upgrading America’s transportation, communication, and power distribution infrastructures. Obama – much like the unlamented President Roosevelt – believes that a New Deal style of public works as welfare program will save our economy…or does he?

There may be another more sinister motive for Obama’s new New Deal. That motive might be Slavery Reparations and “correcting the flaws” of Civil Rights Movement.

So there we have it; Obama’s economic adviser Robert Reich demanding that the – admittedly temporary – jobs created by Obama’s stimulus plan be apportioned along racial and gender lines – with the focus being on an “affirmative action” that would exclude qualified Whites from the positions.

I am concerned, as I’m sure many of you are, that these jobs not simply go to high skilled people who are already professionals or to white male construction workers.

Robert Reich
Jan 7, 2009 Congressional testimony

And in keeping with the long standing tradition of the American Black Liberal – Liberation? – Politician, Reich presents the readily expected dog-eared means for going about ensuring that Blacks, and presumably other minorities by osmosis, if not intent, get these jobs – hiring quotas.

There is one interesting thing about Mr. Reich’s apologetics on his blog. He explicitly mentions keeping skilled White workers from getting the jobs based on their qualifications, but lumps “women, minorities, and the poor and long-term unemployed” under the sweeping banner of “low-income and low-skilled workers.” Nice.

Well, as long as we’re sure of Reich’s preferred demographic and his opinion of them…

Killing Babies Abroad

Posted in Politics, Society on January 24th, 2009

It’s a fact that US tax dollars are being used to fund the killing – intentional or inadvertent – of foreign children. This isn’t a post about Iraq or Gaza though; I’m speaking for the moment about the recent shift in regulations that will once again send American tax monies to foreign countries to fund abortion centers in those lands.

On Friday, January 23, 2009 – the day after the 36th anniversary of Roe v. Wade – President Barack Obama repealed the Bush administration’s existing ban on giving federal money to international groups that perform abortions or provide abortion information. This once again paves the way for American taxpayers to be forced to fund abortions in foreign countries.

This should have come as no surprise to anyone with a basic knowledge of modern American history and politics. The policy in question is known as Mexico City Policy and has been a counter is the game of hyper-partisan, tit-for-tat, politics since its inception in 1984.

  • President Reagan enacted it
  • President George H.W.  Bush  upheld it
  • President Clinton  reversed it
  • President George W. Bush Jr. re-enacted it
  • President Barack Obama rescinded it

Back and forth it goes with each change in the party affiliation of the White House. Some years international organizations must meet a US authored criteria to recieve American tax dollars, other years these international non-governmental organizations (NGOs) are just given American money to do with as they wish in any manner that they wish.

I personally like the The Mexico City Policy. This is more because I favor the US setting stringent requirements for the receipt of US funds than an absolute hatred of abortion on my part. Though I am against US tax dollars being spent on the extermination of the unborn children unless it is done under the auspices of a full national referendum vote. Too many American citizens consider abortion to be utterly reprehensible and evil for it to be proper to force the American people to pay for abortions – in this country or any other.

Change We Expected

Posted in Politics on January 23rd, 2009

America’s new President, Barack Obama campaigned on the twin single-worded “platforms” of “Hope” and “Change.” Some of us saw little or no hope in Obama’s reign and had unsettling – to say the least – expectations of what sort of change he would bring onto our country. Very sadly, we’ve not been – even in this minuscule amount of time since Obama’s inauguration – proven too far wrong.

The Congressional Medal Of Honor Our newly sworn-in President opted not to attend what most would have considered one of the most important Balls on his agenda for that evening – The Salute to Heroes Inaugural Ball.

For the first time in 56 years and 14 inaugurations the incoming POTUS did not attend this celebration. In point of fact, this is first time in the The Salute to Heroes Inaugural Ball’s history that the incoming President did not attend.

The Salute to Heroes Inaugural Ball, first held for President Eisenhower’s inauguration in 1953, recognized recipients of the Medal of Honor, the nation’s highest military award.  Forty-eight (48) of the ninety-eight (98) living Medal of Honor recipients were in attendance that night, but not the man who now holds the rank of Commander in Chief.

Guiness Ad – Brilliant!

Posted in Beer, Humor on January 23rd, 2009

This is possibly the best and funniest beer ad ever, and it comes to us from Guinness. In their own words – it’s brilliant!

Guinness – Share one with a friend…or two.

What could be better – and better mannered – than sharing your beer with your friends? And Guinness is just the perfect beer for it since it’s best served somewhat…um…hotter?…than many other stouts, porters, or lagers.
