we’re not here to make fun of Barack Obama. Today, we aim our gleeful Schadenfreude at his blood relatives, many of whom have names that sound like slight variations of Ooga Booga Yabba Dabba Doo.
Barack Obama doesn’t merely have a single embarrassing family member. He has a whole litter of them. But he’s protected by the Black Shield, a new kind of skin privilege, one it’s impossible to even mention without being branded with the irrevocably shameful “R” word. Due to such fears and also their elaborate financial and ideological entanglements with the current administration, most of America’s press doesn’t leap nearly so eagerly on Obama’s familial skeletons as they do on Sarah Palin’s retarded child or Michelle Bachmann’s screaming faggot of a husband. The press isn’t even in Obama’s pocket—they’re snuggled deep up in his underwear.

The sum is part of a city pension that comes on top of the $198,000 annual salary he is paid to represent the interests of thousands of city workers. Villanova last worked for the city in 1989 as an electrical mechanic with the Department of Streets and Sanitation, making about $40,000 a year. Yet in 2008 he was allowed to retire at age 56 with a $108,000 city pension. That's because, under a little-known state law, his pension was based not on his city paycheck but on his much higher union salary.

There isn’t much policywise coming out of Europe these days that one would expect a conservative like Texas Gov. Rick Perry to emulate because the Continent typically is the domain of the left. However, Mr. Perry recently imported a reform from across the pond that is sure to make the Lone Star State, already the economic envy of the nation, even more of a job-creating juggernaut.
Under the current American legal system, each side in litigation typically retains financial responsibility for its own legal fees absent a prearranged agreement stating otherwise. Yet under the English rule, adopted by virtually every other legal system in the West, the responsibility for attorneys’ fees can be summed up in two words: Loser pays. When two sides enter into litigation, the losing side must pay the winning side any damages awarded, as well as compensation for legal fees incurred by the victor.

IS anyone going to denounce these hate mongers? Why would Rep. Andre Carson, a Democrat from Indiana say such a horrible thing? When does crying fire in a crowded theater become illegal? This is pure racism and it is evil. Speak out against this.
Just to be sure we know who we are dealing with over there
Hitler and Stalin in Illinos
IF this seems like a bad idea, consider, you might even get a $2500 tax credit for doing so. Still a bad idea? Then why is this what is being proposed?

But that's not just my opinion, from another critic:
This explains why Obama's educational transcripts are more closely guarded than the formula for Coke or the recipe for Kentucky Fried Chicken. I am convinced they are mediocre at best; likely containing a number of nebulous pass/fail "passes". Of course, we do have Obama's own statement that he has written two books, "and I wrote them myself". At least Nixon and LBJ can rest knowing their AA efforts were so successful they produced a president. The nation, however, is no better for it.
Michelle's ability is even less stellar
Excellent article that confirms what I have known all along. Neither one is the brightest bulb in the package - far from it. I agree with both Schmutzli and jmlsmb above regarding affirmative action. How can it be that anyone, and I mean ANYONE, would choose to fly under that flag? It is demeaning and absolutely counterproductive. It is nothing more than cheating, in my view. We have become a nation of educational dumbing down and look what that has brought to us. In order to begin any sort of 180 turnaround we must include a complete overhaul of our educational system, a colossal failure if ever there was one. Obama will go down as the biggest failure EVER, and rightfully so. I do hope those who so fervently advocate for affirmative action and extol its virtues will one day be properly ashamed of themselves. But I'm not hopeful on that one.
From the article
In the case of Michelle Obama, affirmative action did all three. The partners at Sidley Austin learned this the hard way. In 1988, they hired her out of Harvard Law under the impression that the degree meant something. It did not. By 1991, Michelle was working in the public sector as an assistant to the mayor. By 1993, she had given up her law license.
Had the partners investigated Michelle's background, they would have foreseen the disaster to come. Sympathetic biographer Liza Mundy writes, "Michelle frequently deplores the modern reliance on test scores, describing herself as a person who did not test well."
She did not write well, either. Mundy charitably describes her senior thesis at Princeton as "dense and turgid." The less charitable Christopher Hitchens observes, "To describe [the thesis] as hard to read would be a mistake; the thesis cannot be 'read' at all, in the strict sense of the verb. This is because it wasn't written in any known language."Michelle had to have been as anxious at Harvard Law as Bart Simpson was at Genius School. Almost assuredly, the gap between her writing and that of her highly talented colleagues marked her as an affirmative action admission, and the profs finessed her through.

If I were the owner of Gibson Guitar company I would be looking for a plant in Mexico or China tomorrow to make my guitars. Same with the NLRB hassling Boeing for it's new plant in Carolina. Send it to China. If you wonder why jobs are moving overseas...this is the reason. Regulation and taxation. And we wonder why there are no Jobs in the USA.
This is a pompous, race-baiting self-righteous bunch of drivel. He lost me at the idea that I must sit down, listen and shut up as a white man. This narcissistic cultural racist mentality is destroying a beautiful culture. I don't "get it."
I think this is so cool. Lucy in the sky with diamonds. AND...If God can create a planet made of diamond, why are streets paved with gold so hard to believe?
If food stamps are an economic stimulus as the White House claims then we should put everyone in the USA on food stamps. Just think of how stimulating that would be...RIGHT? RIGHT? I wonder if anyone in the White House ever took a class in economics, read a book on basic economics or know anyone who knows one peep about economics. And we wonder why we are going down the drain. Who are these people?
This college is affiliated with the United Church of Christ and the reason they ask if people are lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgendered is because they have scholarship money to hand out. Didn't they ever see the movie???
Is this true? I'm astounded. I don't know such people.
I have failed several times and succeeded several times. That record may make me a failure in the eye of the critic, but a success in the eyes of a God who spoke my destiny before the foundations of the earth. May we all "FAIL" like Steve Jobs did. We used to call it "Failing Up". If you never try you never have the chance to succeed (or fail).
A graphic representation of government revolution and situation in the world today. I think you will find this interesting. There's a whole lotta shakin goin on.
I believe this will all work out for good for those who are called according to his purpose and Love HIM. IF NOT...welcome to hell.
I have never understood Paula White. I have heard her speak. She and Mike Murdock are transparently carnal. This fiasco reveals who she really is. I know many love her. Count me out. The anointing can fall on people who are horribly fallen and fleshly (i e Sampson). Learn the difference. I am as flawed as any man you will ever meet...yet God uses me for His purposes. Same with Paula. DISCERN
You can either seek to get more out of an opportunity (job, technology, interaction, person, moment), or less.
More exposure, more risk, more upside, more work, more learning, more engagement, more passion, more chance to be blamed, more opportunity to make a difference, more effort...
Why does anyone listen to the UBER RINO Brooks. He is a friend of the left in SPADES!!
We are NOT obese...the rest of the world needs a burger. LOL
This is a civics test. I got a score of 93.94% 31 out of 33 correct. If you know history, government and economics I challenge you. No fibbing. BUT, if you do badly, perhaps it's time to bone up on your civics. How we live our life depends on how well we understand our foundations. The average American scores 49%, College Professors score 55% average. I'm not shocked. Those who can do, those who can't teach.
Pretty Cool. Shark swimming along beside a car on a flooded road. I have seen carp do this but never a shark
Pastor Phil read this today...I love hearing the raw word of God...no Expository Stuff. Seems appropriate to the day
For the director of music. Of the Sons of Korah. According to alamoth. A song.
1 God is our refuge and strength,
an ever-present help in trouble.
2 Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way
and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea,
3 though its waters roar and foam
and the mountains quake with their surging.
4 There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God,
the holy place where the Most High dwells.
5 God is within her, she will not fall;
God will help her at break of day.
6 Nations are in uproar, kingdoms fall;
he lifts his voice, the earth melts.
7 The LORD Almighty is with us;
the God of Jacob is our fortress.
8 Come and see what the LORD has done,
the desolations he has brought on the earth.
9 He makes wars cease
to the ends of the earth.
He breaks the bow and shatters the spear;
he burns the shields with fire.
10 He says, “Be still, and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth.”
11 The LORD Almighty is with us;
the God of Jacob is our fortress.
