These moronic twits cannot possibly inhabit the same reality enjoyed by thee and me! They just cannot. They look at some demented Jihadist whose only goal in life is killing us because we are free, Christian or American and definitely not THEM and they actually feel sorry for the sons of bitches! Why? Because they started life so disadvantaged.

So what about the latest nutbar who wanted to incinerate an entire planeload of people over a city that already has big problems - Detroit, Michigan! He's a son of wealthy parents and was raised with all the finer things in life, well educated and generally pretty doggone privileged. He isn't some backwoods rube who believes what he believes because of cultural or physical deprivation. He's just freaking NUTS with hatred of our way of life! There's no reasoning with these people, there's no negotiation, there's no "coming together" with them. Their only aim in life is our destruction. Period. And by the way, just so we're clear, Osama Bin Laden, the biggest asshat of them all, is also a son of wealth and privilege!

The reason these people want to kill us is that they are CRAZY and they belong to a so-called religion of peace which is actually all about murder - of us! So let's quit being fatuous idiots and call them what they are - murdering lunatics who can only be stopped by killing them. We start showing these pieces of shit that we mean business and they'll back off right quick. Because at their most basic level, they are cowards - one and all. That's why they make war on the defenseless!

Wake up people. Start PROFILING these bastards and keep them off our planes! And out of our nation. Do we honestly want people living here who rape 2-1/2 year old little girls because her father wouldn't convert to Islam? Canada is giving these people asylum! Read about it here.

I had low expectations from Janet Napolitano when she opined that people like me, the backbone of America, were the real terror danger! She fears that we'll get on to her and her minions and run their happy asses down to Gitmo in perpetuity!

Well Ms. Napolitano, those free Americans who have consistently clung to their guns, their religion and their belief in the American dream are just about at tipping point and your assertion that "the system worked" on Christmas Day is just one more nail in your administration's coffin!

In the first place, the American TSA would not permit the kind of body scan in Amsterdam that would have kept that Muslim (not Nigerian, MUSLIM, you demented crone) off the Northwest flight headed to Detroit! Secondly, searching women like me - age 67, short spikey hair, round gormless Midwestern face - patriotic American citizen, native-born and practicing Catholic - is a waste of time and resources. Get those guys who are loudly speaking Arabic and testing us to see if we have the balls to keep them off our airplanes! PROFILE WENCH, PROFILE!

And just as an aside - the planners of this new threat were recently released from Guatanamo! Good reason to confound the liberal asshats and keep the place open, don't you think? Are you CAPABLE of thinking?

You're stupid, you're ignorant and you're clearly an anti-American tool! Buh-bye! Your Lord and Master, Herr Czero, will be flinging you under the bus any day now.

There are people out there in the world who seek to reconcile the differences between their theological beliefs and our own by way of murder (of us) and that's not going to change any time soon. Treating these incursions as police matters, instead of the acts of war that they truly are isn't going to do us any good either!

There have been several recent "testings" of airport security and, predictably, most of those threats were met with spineless wimpiness by our corporate and public officials who made quite a point of appeasing these Islamofascist murderous thugs! It was then left to ordinary passengers (on Christmas Day of all days) to show the savage cretins that we don't just genuflect to any radical religious nutbar but rather, prevent them from doing whatever nasty business they are planning to do to us.

The assumption of the Islamist loon crowd is that we are too weak, too cowardly to stand up for ourselves and our nation. That would be a very stupid assumption with which to continue to live what's left of your worthless lives!

I have said before, I have absolute faith in MOST of the American people. I have faith in my own courage; I have faith in the courage of others. We will defend our nation. We will, in fact, fulfill the pledge and vow our public officials took and are now ignoring. We will, in fact, preserve, protect and defend the United States of America against all enemies, foreign and domestic!

Can I ask a question? Who decided that profiling is WRONG? I don't happen to believe that!

Janet Napolitano, Dept. of Homeland Security's resident idiot, was actually quoted as saying that "The system worked!" in the case of the would-be bomber of the Northwest flight into Detroit.

Bullshit you ignorant crone! What worked is an alert citizen stopping that loon from murdering a planeload of people! What else can we do? Our so-called leadership is busy searching little old grey haired ladies rather than Islamists who are part of a religion that wishes us and our nation ill!

What part of "They want to KILL US!" do you morons not understand? Dear merciful heavens! God has to protect us. The government that has sworn to "preserve, protect and defend" certainly isn't making any effort to do so.

Our beloved liberal idiot legislators and "leaders" are stone idiots who have insisted, with their heads firmly implanted in the sand (or up their asses) that because we're joining hands and singing "Kumbaya" that we are safe from any kind of threat from Islamofascist murderers! Well, on Christmas Day a plane bound for Detroit sure found out the contrary thanks to one nutbar who got past the no-doubt slack scrutiny of the powers that be (under a slack and idiotic president whose staff didn't even tell him until three hours after the fact that this infamy was taking place - imagine if his name had been Bush instead of Obama - what wailing and gnashing of teeth we'd have heard) and onto an airplane bound into this country! He was on BRITAIN's terror watch list, but not ours! How does that happen?

I don't intend to fly any time soon and, if I did, I would object to being scrutinized closely by the TSA instead of some Islamic type. Yes, I DO believe in profiling - my question is WHY DON'T YOU?

Or full of whatever emanates from one, at least! This ridiculous creature feels perfectly free in labeling a young woman he has never met as a "K Street whore" but is offended when a Florida woman starts a website that opines he is crazy! Whatever happened to freedom of speech, Congressman Grayson? Are you THAT thin-skinned? Are you a bully who can dish it out but cannot take it? Ahhhh - now we're zeroing in on reality with you, you droopy-drawered piss poor excuse for a human being!

You want a woman who is exercising her right of free speech to be jailed for criticizing you. What horse feathers! You are completely fair game Congressman. You are one of 535 members of the House of Representatives who have done precious little good and a whole load of BAD during this current legislative session. You should have your heinie spanked good and proper for your offensive and amateurish behavior during your time in office. I'd be happy to do it were it not that I suspect you'd enjoy it!

They haven't really passed a definitive health care bill as yet and are trying to have the Senate's version pass on Christmas Eve because funding the murder of the unborn is just such a Christmasy thing to do! And do not think for one minute that, however much those lying sacks of excrement swear to the contrary, abortion isn't on the table, along with the souls of those Senator willing to establish a price for their whoredom in full view of the voting public. Do I sound like my Christmas spirit is somehow deficient? It is - and it's because those brainless, spineless creatures in the Senate and the House are selling America and Americans down the river and not out of conviction (although a great many of them ought to be convicted - starting with Charlie Rangel), but just out of greed and avarice. So to Senators Landrieu, Nelson, Dodd and Lieberman - screw you! You have committed what is, in my opinion, treason and ought to be impeached! Then tried, convicted and jailed. Then tarred and feathered and ridden out of town - in January cold - on a rail!

This son-of-a-bitch killed 14 good Americans! I only wish that the policeman who stopped his rampage had had better aim!

Attorney John P. Galligan said police stopped a phone conversation between Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan and one of his brothers Friday because it was not in English. Galligan told the San Antonio Express-News on Monday that police at Brooke Army Medical Center in San Antonio refused to let Hasan pray in Arabic from the Quran with his brother.

The attorney says he thinks that's illegal and violation of religious rights.

Aw, shut the hell up Galligan! How do you KNOW they were praying? Because your scumbag client told you so? How credulous can one man be? Your client is lucky to be alive, unlike the 14 hapless and PATRIOTIC Americans he murdered in cold blood. Don't expect sympathy for him from anyone who cares about this country. He was born here and used taxpayer [my] money to get a first-class education, one that I could not afford, and then he repays our generosity in this way. And don't try that "diminished capacity" crap either - he's a terrorist, plain and simple! He should burn in hell for all eternity but that isn't my sentence to impose, it's God's! The one who said, quite clearly, "Thou shalt not kill" and meant it!

The shameful and absolutely unabashed selling of their votes to pass an abysmal so-called health care package that provides neither health nor care to its consumers, the American public is a new low and perhaps the tipping point in our great national debate of left v. right. I actually had some respect for Nelson, Lieberman et al. before they put their integrity and their votes up for bids, quite shamelessly and publicly!

Meanwhile, according to at least one Dem, anyone who opposes anything the Dems choose to do, be it constitutional or not is - well read it yourself!

Senator Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.) today took shots at those who are not supporting the health care legislation. During a floor speech, he excoriated Senate GOP members for up holding the pending health care bill and accused their supporters of being birthers and fanatics in right-wing militia and Aryan support groups. He started off by citing an editorial from the Manchester Journal Inquirer, which used insults like "lunatic fringe."
Senator Whitehouse - you are, in my opinion, a complete horse's ass and should be thrashed by any one of your colleagues for insulting the representatives of 40% of your nation's population!

Apparently the Dems aren't interested in being returned to office in 2010! They are so completely ready, willing and anxious to insult the population of this country that yes, DOES question their patriotism!

UPDATE: I always knew what they were - we've just settled upon their PRICE! About Chris Dodd and Landrieu I'm not surprised. But I honestly thought that Lieberman and Nelson had one or two principles!

RIO DE JANEIRO – Brazil's Supreme Court on Thursday delayed the return of a 9-year-old boy to his U.S. father only hours after the man arrived from New Jersey in hopes of taking the boy home for Christmas.
David Goldman's son, Sean, was kidnapped five years ago by his then-wife and taken to Brazil where she then divorced Mr. Goldman and subsequently married another man. She died giving birth to her second child, a daughter! Mr. Goldman was, even then, attempting to get his son back. Since then, her widower, a man with no blood relationship or claim to Sean Goldman, has been blocking David Goldman's wholly legal access to his son with the aid of the Brazilian court system.

Brazil is a signatory to an international treaty which specifically states that in the cases of parental abduction, the child is to be returned to the custodial parent immediately and in the past five years, Brazil has done everything in its power to keep a father and son separated - not even permitting Mr. Goldman to SEE his son except on a limited basis.

To his credit, President Obama has been putting pressure on Brazil to give Sean Goldman back to his father, along with the U.S. Congress and Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton have all urged the child's return, and a U.S. congressman traveled to Rio on Thursday to continue lobbying for Sean's return.

Brazil - quit crapping around and behaving like a third-world thugocracy. Allow Sean Goldman to return to the United States with his father David Goldman. Enough with permitting Sean's Brazilian grandparents and his mother's former husband to treat the biological father of Sean Goldman as though he has no rights to his own son. That's bullshit, any way you slice it and all of you should be ashamed of yourselves!

UPDATE: Brazilian grandparents ordered to turn the child over to his father!

Both the U.S. and Brazilian governments have said the matter clearly fell under the Hague Convention, which seeks to ensure that custody decisions are made by the courts in the country where a child originally lived — in this case, the United States.

Silvana Bianchi, Sean's maternal grandmother, wrote an open letter to Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva just hours before the Tuesday ruling, in which she said cultural differences and international pressure were driving the case.

"Our moral foundation values the mother's role. In the absence of the mother, the raising should be done by the grandmother," she wrote. "That's how it's done in Brazil, from north to south, regardless of race, religion or social class. It's natural that foreigners, with a different foundation, would not understand these authentically Brazilian feelings." (Does the old biddy understand International Law? and is she suggesting that her family's money and influence is more weighty than a father's right to raise his own son?)

Meanwhile, Goldman has said his parents and other relatives have been waiting for years to be reunited with Sean.

Silva has said he would not intervene in the case, that it was purely a matter for Brazil's legal system.

(Actually, it’s a matter for international law and U.S. law, whether the Brazilians like it or not! Authentically Brazilian feelings are apparently to disregard and disrespect a child’s legal parent!)

UPDATE #2: Sean Goldman is now in the United States with his father. This is a good thing. It will take a while for the wounds inflicted by the selfishness of Sean's mother and the unbelievably insensitive behavior of his stepfather and his grandparents to be healed. Meanwhile, negotiations are underway to arrange for the Brazilian grandparents to visit Sean.

It is commendable that David Goldman does not intend to do to them what was done to him! I applaud him for his decency and concern that his son continue to know his maternal grandparents through the years. But David - make sure they never get their hot little hands on Sean's passport and make sure that their visits are always supervised!

UPDATE #3: In a statement dripping with effrontery and arrogance, the Brazilian grandparents of 9 year old Sean Goldman have now announced that they are going to continue the fight to remove Sean Goldman from his father's care and custody and return him to the custody of his grandparents in Brazil - the same grandparents who wouldn't even permit David Goldman to see his own son during their entire five-year separation. What kind of evil people are these? Please do not tell me they are loving grandparents. The father of this child is the truly loving one - he is willing to allow Sean to spend time with his grandparents - granted under supervision and in his own home here in the U.S. But here is the statement from the attorney for the grandparents:

SAO PAULO – The Brazilian family of a 9-year-old boy returned by court order to his U.S. father said Tuesday it will fight to regain custody.

Lawyers for the relatives of Sean Goldman said they will push forward with a request from his Brazilian grandmother to allow the boy to make his own wishes known in court.

Nine-year old boys are not permitted to express their wishes! And the longer it takes for the grandparents to get this kid into court, the less effective will be the brainwashing they have inflicted on him. This is not love, this is child abuse!


For those of us who do not consider Charlie Crist to be the ideal candidate for any office, this is great news. Everything I know or have read about Marco Rubio leads me to believe that this fine, Cuban-American gentleman is exactly what the Senate and the people of Florida need. And now to the great shock of all - even the pollster - Rasmussen is showing that Rubio and Crist are in a dead heat! THAT is stunning.

In the first place, it has long been my opinion that our Americans of Cuban ancestry are the most vibrant and energetic contributors to the health of our conservative culture. In the second place, Charlie Crist is one of those RINO types who don't really represent the Republican Party to which he putatively belongs. I also feel that he is a sycophant and a dissembler of the first water!

Granted, I live in Virginia so it isn't really my call, but come on - the future of American legislative politics IS at the top of this post! And it doesn't look half bad, does it?

And God bless us, everyone of us! Especially God bless the leftwing loons who are doing all they can possibly do to destroy this beautiful country. They need all the blessings they can get.

God bless Barack and Michelle Obama. Two of the most ill-prepared and incompetent humans ever to occupy the White House, surpassing only James Earl Carter, Jr. in lack of intelligence and class! I believe that the occupant of the Oval Office is a man with deeply seated feelings of displacement and disconnection from normal humans, and an absurdly elevated idea of his own importance and capabilities. Here's the memo, Mr. President. You are just an ordinary human, like the rest of us. You are also NOT our ruler, but rather our SERVANT and EMPLOYEE. I pray that his naive arrogance and her bitter disdain for our nation are both ameliorated by the love of God throughout this blessed season and throughout the coming year 2010. May the Holy Spirit visit their hearts and bring them peace and joy.

God bless Michelle Duggar and her husband Jim Bob or whateverinhell he's called, the randy s.o.b. who has kept her pregnant almost nonstop throughout their marriage. She just gave birth to her 19th child, a little girl who was months premature! What part of "keep your dick holstered you hound" does this man not understand? Yes, God wants us to be fruitful and multiply. But there's fruitful and then there is ridiculous. The Duggars are now in the realm of ridiculous, not to mention life-threatening danger to Michelle. Who, by the way, I find myself disliking - the long hair to her waist and the little girl, breathy voice. I always get the feeling with these endlessly pious Christian women that there is something rotten lurking under the surface. Call me a cynic; you'd be correct.

God bless Tiger Woods and his wife Elin. May their lives return to some semblance of order sometime soon, if only for the sake of those two beautiful little children of theirs. Tiger, my advice to JimBob Duggar applies to you as well. You took vows. Be prepared to keep them. Humble yourself before the woman you have offended so grievously. You may yet salvage your dignity and reputation, if not your marriage.

Left-wing loons of the chattering classes (Garofolo, Olbermann, Joy Behar, Chrissie Matthews) - just shut the hell up already! None of you knows what you're talking about and you display your ignorance so proudly! Does any of you have the ability to self-evaluate and realize that you are embarrassing yourselves? Boneheaded, mean-spirited dopey haters all of you!

I survived numerous health challenges during 2009 and am heading into 2010 with joy in my heart and hopes for the future. I wish the same joy and hope to all of you and will suspend blogging until 2010!

From me and from Sam the Wonder Cat (who has taken to sleeping at the end of the couch, on his back, with all 4 paws sticking straight up - what a beloved dweeb), all love and prayers for the coming Holidays and New Year.

And no, I'm not referring to Bill O'Reilly, although heaven knows he qualifies. Does he even listen to people when they're speaking or is he so enthralled with his own self-perceived brilliance that he's busy formulating his next interruption or snide remark?

However, the windbag to whom I refer is one "Plugs" Biden, vice president of the United States, who has pronounced that:

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – If the U.S. Congress fails to agree on a healthcare bill soon, the opportunity for a sweeping overhaul of the $2.5 trillion system will be lost for a generation, Vice President Joe Biden warned on Tuesday.

Biden was speaking just hours before Democratic lawmakers were to meet at the White House with President Barack Obama, who is pressing them to reach agreement and pass a bill on his signature domestic policy issue.

Obama has invested much of his political capital in trying to get the Democratic-controlled Congress to pass a healthcare bill by the end of the year. The bill has been passed by the House of Representatives, but Democrats have struggled to win the 60 votes they need in the Senate.

From your mouth to God's ear, Vice President "Rosary Joe" Biden. The healthcare reforms being considered in both the house and the Senate are egregiously flawed and don't deserve to see the light of day - or the acquiesence of our erstwhile President!

And just as an afterthought, God is truly great and good, Vice President Biden. It's the only explanation for how one with your limited intellectual abilities was able to rise to such a lofty office!

UPDATE: Over at Contentions, Jennifer Rubin has an excellent take on the matter!

I am likewise tired of the speculation about what his wife, Elin, plans to do about his philandering. She has two small children to think about and by the way National Enquirer, you aren't making her job any easier!

Whether or not the family or just Elin and the two children retire to the house in Sweden for six months, I don't CARE! Whether Elin decides to continue in the marriage, I don't CARE! Whether or not Tiger has been taking performance enhancing drugs, I don't CARE! I want one day to pass without hearing about this athlete's self-indulgent, self-involved behavior and I DON'T want to hear about the 14 skanks who are trying for their 15-minutes of fame by claiming to have slept with him. You knew the man was married so what's your beef. You behaved in a slutty manner and now you want to make money from it? There's a name for women who make money from sexual behavior! Don't be so freaking proud of yourselves, bimbos!

I am not interested in the slightest about whether or not Tiger Woods is a cheapskate, non-tipping piece of excrement! I don't CARE! Golf is a game, people, not the mover and shaker of the world. It's a GAME!

I guess nobody should be surprised that the Italian general population and their news media are reacting with shock and dismay to the attack by a mentally disturbed man on their prime minister Berlusconi as he was signing autographs in a cathedral over the weekend. In a cathedral? Really? How deeply inappropriate!

ROME (Reuters) – Italians asked on Monday if an ugly assault on Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi was prompted by a "climate of hatred" splitting their nation and commentators said a wave of sympathy looked set to boost his political fortunes.

Berlusconi was hospitalized on Sunday with broken teeth, a fractured nose and a scarred face after a man with a history of mental problems hurled a statuette of Milan's cathedral at him as he signed autographs after a political rally.

A medical bulletin said on Monday there were no big worries about Berlusconi's condition but that he would stay in hospital at least until Tuesday because he was complaining sharp pains in the head and face and had lost about a liter of blood.

Sr. Berlusconi claims to be a devout Catholic despite multiple marriages and very public liaisons and now he is attacked signing autographs in a cathedral. Excuse me if I opine that the so-called climate of hatred is directed more toward his utterly inappropriate behavior and far less toward an atmosphere of political hatred.

The man is a pig. A public pig. He has directed completely inappropriate and vicious language and attitudes toward Pope Benedict and behaved in a manner that is in flagrant violation of both Church and Italian law. Sympathy for this cretin? I think not. But then, these are Italians! So what can one expect? A beautiful country filled with beautiful people, food and wine, and not exactly overly endowed with backbones.

REALLY? HE'S GOING TO VIOLATE THE CONSTITUTION AGAIN - Isn't that an impeachable offense?!

Our president, Captain Moonbeam, is actually planning to accept the Noble Peace Prize - an award to which he is hardly entitled and an award, the acceptance of which is specifically interdicted by our Constitution. But hey, why deal in trivialities like the Constitution when you're the savior of the free world? Right? Yeah, well, not so much.

Article I, Section 9, of the Constitution, the emolument clause, clearly stipulates: "And no Person holding any Office of Profit or Trust under them, shall, without the Consent of the Congress, accept of any present, Emolument, Office, or Title, of any kind whatever, from any King, Prince or foreign State."

An opinion of the U.S. attorney general advised, in 1902, that "a simple remembrance," even "if merely a photograph, falls under the inclusion of 'any present of any kind whatever.' " President Clinton's Office of Legal Counsel, in 1993, reaffirmed the 1902 opinion, and explained that the text of the clause does not limit "its application solely to foreign governments acting as sovereigns." This opinion went on to say that the emolument clause applies even when the foreign government acts through instrumentalities. Thus the Nobel Prize is an emolument, and a foreign one to boot.

Second, the president has indicated that he will give the prize money to charity, but that does not solve his legal problem. Giving that $1.4 million to a charity could give him a deduction that would reduce his income taxes by $500,000 -- not a nominal amount. Moreover, the money is not his to give away. It belongs to the United States: A federal statute provides that if the president accepts a "tangible or intangible present" for more than a minimal value from any foreign government, the gift "shall become the property of the United States."

So he's accepting an award from a foreign government (i) to which he is not entitled, (ii) the acceptance of which is clearly unconstitutional and (iii) monies which he is accepting and then donating to charity - monies that are not his to give away since they belong to the U.S. Treasury!

Didn't our president advertise himself as a "constitutional lawyer" during the campaign. Surely he knows he is committing clearly impeachable offenses here. Or does he even care?


Ahmadinejad - the utterly demented, babbling idiot who is the president of Iran, made the following comments recently (see post below):

“We have documented proof that they believe that a descendant of the prophet of Islam will raise in these parts and he will dry the roots of all injustice in the world,” Ahmadinejad said during a speech on Monday, according to Al Arabiya."
First, you moronic piece of camel excrement, let's see your documented proof. Secondly, what he calls "injustice" is actually the result of poor governance, complete lack of work ethic and a desire to have handed to you all that others have produced with their hard work and dedication.

I'm truly surprised that when we see this poor excuse for a human speaking, his eyes aren't spinning counterclockwise. He's just that crazy! And possibly with nuclear weapons at his disposal. Now THAT is truly batshit crazy!

Tuesday, December 08, 2009


Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad claims the United States is attempting to thwart the return of mankind's savior, according to reports from Al Arabiya, a television news station based in Dubai.

Ahmadinejad reportedly claims he has documented evidence that the U.S. is blocking the return of Mahdi, the Imam believed by Muslims to be the savior.

“We have documented proof that they believe that a descendant of the prophet of Islam will raise in these parts and he will dry the roots of all injustice in the world,” Ahmadinejad said during a speech on Monday, according to Al Arabiya.

"They have devised all these plans to prevent the coming of the Hidden Imam because they know that the Iranian nation is the one that will prepare the grounds for his coming and will be the supporters of his rule," Ahmadinejad was quoted as saying.

Mind you there have been reports over the past few years that Ahmadinejad believes himself to be the Hidden Imam so he isn't even making any sense. Either he's already here (in a manner of speaking) or he isn't. Just more proof that this man is a psychotic, loopy-dee-loop nutbar! With his finger on a possible nuclear trigger! If you aren't scared, you should be.

So here's the deal. I made my first predictions several months ago and, at the time, thought I was waltzing way out on a very shaky limb. Now I think I've pretty much figured it out!
Figure Skating:
Women's Singles: Yu Na Kim, South Korea (also in the mix, Rachael Flatt and Alissa Czizny of the U.S.)
Men's Singles: Yvgeni Plushenko, Russia (Nobunari Oda of Japan and Evan Lysacek of the U.S. also on the podium)
Ice Dancing: United States (either Belbin and Agosto or White and Davis), Canada (Moir and Virtue) or Russia. This is way too close to call!
Pairs: Xue Shen and Hongbo Zhao of China - in a sprint away from the others, with Pang and Tong of China and Szalkowy and Savchenko of Germany also figuring in the mix.

Hold me to these predictions kids. Barring injuries, I very much believe that these are about as accurate as any handicapping coming out of Vegas!


True to my predictions, Xue Shen and Hongbo Zhao won the pairs final at the Grand Prix competition in Japan over the weekend. They are platinum in a field of lead! They command the ice with joy and passion in a way that no other contemporaneous skaters are able to do! In short, they are mind-boggling and remarkable in every way. Total champions of the heart and the technique which is impeccable. Even the current world champions from Germany were pale by comparison and they are magnificent skaters themselves! I'm not all that impressed with the other Chinese pairs teams as they strike me as still being somewhat sloppy in their presentation - but Shen and Zhao are brilliant by anyone's measure.

In the ladies free, Yu Na Kim halted her brief and totally expectable slide from perfection at 2 performances and won the final handily. All she did with those 2 losses is prove she is human! Evan Lysacek skated extremely well to win the Men's title while Charlie White and Meryl Davis gave the United States an unprecedented win in Ice Dancing. Johnny Weir skated well in the men's final. I will withhold my rants until after I'm done with Mr. Lysacek.

Okay, Evan, what's with the freaking five o'clock shadow and the greasy hair? I realize you need to show that you're using your upper body in the step sequences, but is the endless arm waving and flapping really necessary? You look ridiculous. That asinine snake on your costume isn't well taken either.

Now on to Mr. Weir. He is frail - both emotionally and intellectually. Having barely managed to win third place in the final, he was predicting that he will beat Mr. Lysacek (who won the competition) at the U.S. Nationals - in other words he expects (or says he does) to defeat the reigning World Champion and the reigning Grand Prix champion in just 8 weeks' time. Mr. Weir, it's called Mens skating - you are a boy and an immature one at that. You are so busy taking yourself oh-so seriously and paying assiduous attention to your sequins and feathers and other fripperies that you cannot even begin to realize that Evan Lysacek is a MAN and a powerful one at that on the ice. Don't kid yourself. You aren't up to defeating either Evan Lysacek or Yvgeni Plushenko in a direct competition which is what the Olympics will be. So quit running your mouth. You've finally managed to skate two relatively clean programs for the first time in 18 months and now you think you're ready to defeat the world? Talk about hubris! And get a haircut instead of going out on the ice with that scrambled and untidy mop on top of your head!

I must give a kudo to the ice dancers and the other women skaters who had clean skate laces and roots that matched their ends this time! It's about time that they started showing respect for themselves as world class athletes and for their sport and the occasion!

The matter of the Salahis insinuating themselves onto the White House grounds for the State Dinner being given by President and Mrs. Obama for the Prime Minister of India continues to exercise Congress - as it should. I don't like our current White House occupant but I for damned sure don't want anything untoward to happen to him either! Nor do I want his wife and daughters to be endangered in any way by the bad behavior or carelessness of others. Despite the Salahis breezy assertion that they've already talked to the Secret Service, the brass balls required to tell the U.S. Congress to go take a hike is exactly the same kind of brass balls needed to crash a White House State Dinner.

The latest fusillade of childish rhetoric has been (naturally) participated in by Robert Gibbs, the unbearably smug little twerp who is serving as White House Press Secretary and April Ryan of American Urban Radio, in which Gibbs essentially compared Ryan to a petulant child. Ryan said that Desiree Rogers had overstepped the traditional role of her title at the event to become the "belle of the ball," thus "overshadowing the first lady." Frustrated by Ryan's tabloid-y line of questioning, Gibbs instructed her to "calm down" and to take a deep breath," adding "I do this with my son and that's what happens." The smarmy and offensively condescending Gibbs is displaying none of the tact and patience exhibited by predecessors - although it must be said that the White House Press Corps is an unruly bunch, seldom amenable to being kept "on message" much as the White House would like them to do so.

It is my belief that the Obama White House, like the Clinton White House, is staffed with childish and immature people who see only their own self-aggrandizement and have no thought for their responsibilities to the president, his family and the nation that pays their salaries! It is my further belief that Robert Gibbs is a horse's patoot! In spades!

In view of the Flight 297 situation several weeks ago, would you be willing to board an airplane that was also being boarded by a bunch of men who look like they've hit the white sale at Macy's?

Personally I would rather WALK than get on the same plane with these bozos - even one bozo - and I don't walk all that well.

What's your opinion?

There are pairs skaters - and then there is Xue Shen and Hongbo Zhao! This married couple has come back after being off the competitive circuit for nearly 3 years and they haven't missed a beat. They are the gold standard when it comes to pairs skating and in the short program at the Grand Prix Final in Japan - they set a new record for a pairs short program! They were so incredibly good and skated with such evident joy that I was moved to tears!

If you get a chance to watch any figure skating over the next few days - try to get a glimpse of these two luminous and brilliant skaters from China. I am betting on them to win Gold in Vancouver!

Thanks to our out-of-control lunatics in Congress, led by Madame Pelosi and Harry "The Cadaver" Reid and encouraged and abetted by Captain Czero the current occupant of the White House - our one nation, under God is in serious trouble.

So what do we do?

First, we must inundate our elected representatives (who think they are the bosses of us) with letters reminding them that 33% of the Senate and ALL of the House is up for re-election in 2010 and that they will not receive our votes should they pass into law that egregiously flawed health care reform bill currently under consideration, or should they romp further down the road to socialism - a philosophy on which this country was not founded. We need to take back OUR government and carefully think out the transformative measures required to return us to our proper philosophical pathway, completely respecting of the U.S. Constitution which the current powers that be are treating as a set of suggestions rather than settled governing law.

Second, we need to resist in every way we can, the federal incursions onto our liberty. Don't let those bozos abrogate our rights under the 1st or 2nd Amendments. Give only the most basic of information to those intrusive census takers or - better yet - just don't ever be "at home" when they come around. Continue the Tea Parties up to and including 7/4/2010. Don't stop reminding these dimwitted ignoramuses (?) that WE the people don't like what they're doing one little bit. Contribute money to the candidate seeking to defeat Harry Reid. Send money to San Fran Nan's opponent. Continue to believe, as I do, that nobody is absolutely ENTRENCHED.

There is hope, there is a remedy - if only we believe in ourselves, our nation and our fellow citizens.

I was under the impression that our president was an electrifying speaker. So why did his address to the nation vis-a-vis Afghanistan succeed primarily in putting the cadet corps into a coma?

I watched part of the speech and it had the same effect on me. But then again, I'm 67 years old and afflicted with sleep apnea!

What I got from his speech is that (a) it's all President Bush's fault, (b) he's only going to give General McChrystal (President Obama's handpicked general) 75% of what he requested in terms of additional troops, (c) it's all President Bush's fault, and (d) we have a definite withdrawal date (in much the same way that we had a definite close-down date for Gitmo).

My assessment of last night's speech? Blah-blah-blah! Nothing new here; more along!

Maggots and slime and all manner of nasty pests can be found in the woodwork - particularly in the case of the Tiger Woods saga. Suddenly this intensely private man is having his personal business bruited all about the Internet and people who should know better are speculating on what happened over Thanksgiving weekend, even though the Florida State Police have already closed the case.

Here's the deal - I absolutely do not believe in unfaithfulness within a marriage. I think you take vows and that's that! You live up to those vows. Period. However, it is not my place to tell Tiger Woods how to live his life and I sure as hell don't need to have any respect for those cretinous bimbos who are suddenly stepping forward claiming to have had a "relationship" (Gadzooks I am starting to hate that word!) with the finest golfer of his generation. Maybe all they did was say "hello" to him at a business function or maybe they did do the horizontal mambo with Mr. Woods. I don't know and frankly, I don't CARE!

Sit down, go away and shut the hell up you self-promoting clowns! It should purely be a matter between Mr. Woods and his WIFE. Nobody else. Let them work out their marital situation as best they can for the sake of their two little children.

My guess is "no", given the nonsense that pours out of his ignorant piehole! The latest (And could MSNBC sink any lower?) from the mouth of Matthews, when he referred to West Point as an "enemy camp" and wondered why the COMMANDER IN CHIEF of the U.S. military would go to such a place to make a speech.

Have the tingles up this tool's legs finally rendered him incapable of coherent thought? The fact that he is free to spout such foolishness is the result of the vigilance of our military who protect not only those of us who value and love our country but also idiots like Matthews who possess the IQ of a kumquat!

When, oh when, dear Lord will we be delivered from this moronic twit and his deeply stupid commentary? My sister's pit bull Zeus makes more sense! And is a great deal more likable.

So apparently a pair of socialite wannabes managed to either crash the State Dinner last Tuesday (a rude act at the very least, possibly an actionable national security breach at the other end of the scale) or show up without an invitation in hand or anywhere in evidence. Trust me, if they had an invite, they'd have shown it by now. The President is - reportedly - absolutely furious and he has every right to be. It's seldom that I agree with President Obama but on this score he is absolutely correct to be angry. Michelle Obama is also absolutely within her right to be steaming angry as well. Her family's security and safety were at risk when a combination of stupid mistakes by various people allowed these fame whores to crash a State Dinner in honor of the president of India! Michaele and Tareq Salahi reportedly wished to be included in Bravo's "Real Housewives of D.C." program and were using this as their entree. Dear merciful heavens, have we now completely blurred the line between reality TV and reality? Whatever their motivation, their "crashing" of the State Dinner was rude, unconscionable and downright dangerous!

Tiger Woods crashed his Escalade just outside his home in Florida. I think he's being somewhat foolish in not talking to the authorities about what happened. I also think it is none of anyone's business what happened if no crime was involved. It was an accident. He was injured. That's the end of it. Let's not use this accident as an opportunity to smear one of the truly great athletes AND gentlemen of this decade with unfounded and scurrilous rumors. It's just not right.

We are too much up in other people's business these days. We need to step back, take a deep breath and mind our own more thoroughly instead of being sanctimonious inquisitors of people we don't even know. I don't give a rat's eardrum if Brad and Angelina have differing political views. I don't CARE if Jennifer Anniston is getting laid. I don't have the slightest desire to hear about what Jon and Kate Gosselin (a pair of despicable creatures both) are up to except that I hope someone is looking out for the welfare of those 8 chidlren. I don't really care one way or the other if the President is having sex with his own wife. It isn't any of MY BUSINESS. The only reason that Bill Clinton's liaison with a slightly overweight yenta the same age as his daughter was that he freaking LIED ABOUT IT TO A FEDERAL GRAND JURY. That's a whole different thing. Tiger Woods doesn't owe me an explanation, even if he was having a domestic with his wife! As long as he's okay and nobody else got injured - the hell with it.

We're a nation of people who whisper in corners - and it's demeaning to us all as a culture. Five days off work gave me time to really think about it.

(And the fact that my eyesight was unaffected by the April 2009 stroke I suffered was the best news I could have gotten from my lengthy visit to the eye doctor yesterday - seriously, 3 HOURS?)

Sweet sis Linda and I are recovering from two days of merry-making. Somehow we ended up going over to Joyce's house for Thanksgiving dinner - with her entire merry crew of children, grandchildren and adopted grandchildren who are treated in no way different than the blood relations. And a good time was had by all! Then yesterday, I went over to Linda's house, toting the turkey breast we deep fat fried at Joyce's house, and we watched some really good TV movies, played with the livestock (Tim the perfidious Siamese spent a good portion of the afternoon on my lap whilst Zeus and Harley managed to snatch their portion of snuggle time - who can deny that worried pit bull face of Zeus' or Harley's neediness). Today, I relaxed a tad and tomorrow we're doing it again at my house so that Sam can get his share of snuggles from Auntie Linda.
Hope everyone is having the kind of spectacularly family-oriented holiday that we are. It is the unintended and unexpected benefit of our less than hearty financial times that families are doing more things together and spending more quality time together.
Love to you all. Have a great day on Sunday.

Rep. Kennedy, a Rhode Island Democrat and son of the late U.S. Sen. Edward Kennedy, was criticized by Bishop Tobin of Providence for his attacks on the Catholic bishops’ opposition to abortion funding in health care legislation. Recently, Kennedy revealed that Bishop Tobin had asked him to refrain from receiving communion because of his public contradiction of Catholic teaching. Rep. Kennedy is playing fast and loose with reality here since the good Bishop asked this of the Representative in 2007 (long before the health care debate even began) and now the whining little scion of the reprehensible Senator is trying to lecture the Catholic Church on how it is supposed to behave and believe vis-a-vis the health care debate as it pertains to abortion, which any intelligent and marginally well-educated Catholic knows is a big no-no! It's called MURDER, Rep. Kennedy. It isn't an elective belief. It's an absolute. Supporting abortion rights, however politically expedient it may seem to you, is an endangerment of your immortal soul.

Rep. Kennedy - quit trying to be a Catholic scholar. You don't have the requisite intelligence to do so. Listen to what your Bishop is telling you and act on it. Or don't receive communion. It's your choice. Just as it's my choice to pray for the health of your immortal soul.


Suddenly, suddenly the unscientific science behind the global warming terrorism of people around the world is being exposed! Suddenly, it is clear that Albert Gore, Jr., huckster extraordinaire, was spouting bullshit when he wrote "An Inconvenient Truth" and accepted an Academy Award for the film of the same name AND a Nobel Peace Prize which was less deserved than even the one awarded President Obama!

The earth has been cooling over the past ten years. This is a normal cyclical pattern and nothing new except to those who, like Chicken Little, prefer to believe that the sky is falling. Guess what Al Gore? You're an idiot. The earnest, essentially humorless, sanctimonious hucksters such as Al Gore have made a lot - and I do mean a LOT - of money pushing this fraudulent point of view and now they are about to be exposed - maybe even prosecuted for their nonsense.

I think a better policy would be to utterly ignore them henceforth. Never listen to another word they say. That would be the MOST crushing punishment of all. Making them live with how truly insignificant they really are!

I am so happy I stocked up on incandescent light bulbs at BJ's Warehouse store!

I'm really not one to say "I told you so!" but - - - I told you so!

The University of Minnesota is apparently ready to demand that its education graduates (future teachers of Minnesota and other locales) confess to their own bigotry in order to remove cultural bigotry from their psyches. In other words, their thought processes are under review and subject to revision by those who think they know better!

The University has program called Teacher Education Redesign. Its purpose is not as one would guess to improve the quality of teaching in Minnesota. Oh no, my friends, its purpose is to reeducate (sounds like something Mao would have thought a good idea) the minds of future teachers so that they achieve something called "cultural competence". To me it sounds like total nonsense and offensive, anti-First Amendment bullshit.

Since when is dissent something to be suppressed? Certainly when Code Pink was making an ass of itself down in Crawford, Texas - annoying the President of the United States, we were told that dissent is an essential part of our nation's mental health and welfare. How is it any different when the right is dissenting?

I would support a Teacher Education Redesign if it led to our children being taught actual history, reading, writing and how to add, subtract, multiply and divide. I would be thrilled if our children were taught how the federal government worked, so that I wouldn't have to hear pinheads say things like "President Obama passed a law that . . ." No, he did not pass a law you nitwit! Congress passes the law. President Obama only signs it or vetos it. And as it happens, I wish to never ever hear a candidate for U.S. president assert that there are 57 States! So train our teachers to teach more effectively and with less bias and I'll be happy. Mess with their minds in pursuit of some pie-in-the-sky attempt at political correctness and I'm bound and determined to kick your ass with my elderly size 11 boot!

If you know any woman currently undergoing Chemo, please pass the word to her that there is a cleaning service that provides *FREE* housecleaning - 1 time per month for 4 months while she is in treatment. All she has to do is sign up and have her doctor fax a note confirming the treatment. Cleaning for a Reason will have a participating maid service in her zip code area arrange for the service. Please pass this information on to bless a woman going through Breast Cancer treatment. This organization serves the entire USA and currently has 547 partners to help these women. It's our job to pass the word and let them know that there are people out there that care. Be a blessing to someone and pass this information along.


Captain Zero, our ignoble commander in chief, is going to finally, finally, finally (maybe) going to make a decision vis-a-vis the war in Afghanistan on Tuesday of next week. Meanwhile, American soldiers are dying over there, partially as a result of Zero's dithering!

What a useless piece of excrement someone voted into the Oval Office - and trust me, my vote was for John McCain. Hey - all you people who didn't vote in order to "teach the Republicans a lesson" - how's that working out for you, eh? Morons.

It is more likely that Jon and Kate Gosselin will reunite and go off into the sunset as a happily married couple than it is that the varying personalities and constituencies of the various Senators will unite to pass any kind of meaningful health care reform bill. In other words, those of us who consider any of the bills presented so far to be disastrous will be the winners if nothing gets passed into infamy!

33% of the Senators are up for re-election in 2010. ALL of the members of the House of Representatives are up for re-election in 2010. The American public has spoken - loudly - and continues to so speak and at some point (probably after the first of the year) it is going to dawn on these clowns that - if they want to keep their jobs - they are going to have to be more thoughtful and more intelligent in their approach to reform. A good start would be tort reform. It is long overdue. That alone will cut health care costs significantly.

I cannot support anything that removes from me the opportunity to continue to consult the team of physicians who have gotten me through 3 serious health care crises during 2009. I have carefully scrutinized their bills and do not find them to be outrageous. I don't have any issues with my insurer either. So why would I want any kind of change? I'm not an idiot. What I do think is necessary is the tort reform and I am expressing that opinion based on a couple of years as a legal secretary in a personal injury defense law firm. Some of the lawsuits were just plain asinine and yet, the insurance companies had to pay to defend them. Just as one example, a woman with a sick baby case who had had gonnorrhea three times during her pregnancy and had smoked and had consumed alcohol AND drugs non-stop throughout that selfsame pregnancy. Her baby was born brain damaged and she had the effrontery to blame the doctor! Talk about brass balls! These are the kinds of baseless lawsuits that must be curtailed in order to reduce costs. People who have experienced genuine injury at the hands of careless physicians certainly should retain their right to seek redress, but people like the sick baby complainant described above - she should be incarcerated in solitary confinement for a lengthy period as her punishment for the egregious harm she deliberately and stupidly inflicted on her own child. Fair comment: I was born unable to bear children and thus have absolutely no patience with women whose ability to bear children is intact and who abuse their bodies or their offspring in some way!

The final qualifying competition for the Grand Prix final took place in Kitchener, Ontario last weekend and was - to say the least - an interesting competition. The astonishing pair of Savchenko and Szalkowy (Germany) took a huge risk after their rather mediocre season debut earlier in the Grand Prix series. The created an entirely new free program just 4 weeks ago and debuted it this weekend, serving notice that the two time and reigning world champions are a force to be reckoned with. The new program looks totally polished and technically challenging and was skated with the speed and precision for which this team is known. And gave them first place in the competition. The Chinese will be a factor in the Grand Prix final, however, and at the Vancouver Olympics.

Canada's occasionally inconsistent Joanie Rochette won the Ladies' competition but not by a lot over America's enchanting Alissa Czizny. It appears to me that Yu-Na Kim will have some solid competition at the Grand Prix Final and also at the Olympics in Vancouver.

Jeremy Abbott of the United States won the men's competition, skating with some emotional turmoil (the skiing accident death of a dear friend of his just a few days before) over Takahashi of Japan who is recovering from knee surgery and skating better than anyone could hope to expect. Of course, for all of them, there is the spectre of Plushenko at the Olympics, but he won't be at the Grand Prix final and thus, the competition is between these two and Evan Lysacek, also of the U.S. Great skating expected.

As to ice dancing, Virtue and Moir of Canada won, thus setting up some serious competitiveness for the Olympics. Belbin and Agosto, White and Davis and Virtue and Moir all will be challenging for the gold medal.

Now for the carp! The women of ice dancing have a bad habit of showing up for competitions in beautiful outfits with filthy skates. Not just the laces, although those tend to be disgracefully dirty but the skates themselves! Ladies, there's this new invention called shoe polish! Use it!

Dark roots seem to be fewer and fewer between but men with 5-o'clock shadow are my new gripe. Is the idea of a competition for which you and your families and sponsors have spent thousands of dollars preparing not sufficiently important to cause you to SHAVE? Come on! No point in looking like a bum from the neck up fellows! Scruffy is a look, but not a good look!

The headline on the Associated Press story in my local newspaper read "Hundreds Turn Out for Palin" while the article started out "More than 1,000 fans cheer former Alaska Governor in Michigan for Book Tour," and the subsequent online story read: "Thousands gathered outside a Barnes & Noble bookstore in Grand Rapids to get a signed copy of Sarah Palin's new book." So which was it AP? Did y'all fail basic math?

Is this kind of nonsense really necessary or useful? It's no wonder that the credibility of the formerly elite media is at an all time low! And to be very realistic, we need them to be vibrant and healthy and successful because they should be the watchdogs over elected officials - reporting the facts without fear or favor! Doesn't happen, kids. Doesn't happen at all. Which is why the newspaper business is dying and TV news programs have ever slimmer audience share.

You'd think they'd learn but they are so deep in thrall to the present administration as to be wholly deaf to reality!

Are BHO and company deliberately throwing the KSM prosecution? That question was asked this morning during our [too lengthy] commute from Fredericksburg into the District by someone whose intelligence I very much respect.

I will grant you that the Left prefers to see the prosecution of Khalid Sheik Mohammed as a law-enforcement matter, rather than the prosecution of a person who has been part of a deliberate and violent act of war towards our country, but even so, both our President and Attorney General Eric Holder (for whom I have no admiration and no respect - fair disclosure here - nobody calls me a coward and keeps my good regard) should know that their flat-out statements yesterday and the day before could easily be seen as poisoning the potential jury pool. And that is if, in fact, it is even possible to get an unbiased jury in New York City. Suspicious minds could easily posit that this is a deliberate and coordinated effort to so poison the atmosphere at a potential trial that the murdering bastard who admitted proudly to being the mastermind behind 9/11 will get off scot-free!

I'm not usually big on conspiracy theories, but this one resonates a bit with me. Is it possible that the reason for all of the huge amounts of money spent to elect Barack Hussein Obama to the presidency and the smooth confirmation of his incompetent and hate-spewing Attorney General was all geared toward getting KSM out from under the charges and the execution by a firing squad using bullets soaked in pig's blood he so richly deserves? I'm just wondering.

I was fortunate enough to spend my college years in Columbus, Ohio where I majored in journalism at The Ohio State University and learned to appreciate the game of football, fraternity men, and quarterbacks! The advisor to my sorority was Anne Hayes, wife of Woody, who was an exceptional and fascinating gentleman. Forget the neanderthal reputation foisted upon him by nasty newspaper persons (most of whom probably went to that "school up north"), Woody was a true gentleman and a scholar.

Jim Tressell is now the coach of The Ohio State University football team and a better example for his young charges I cannot imagine. The Coach believes in proper behavior both on and off the field and takes the descriptive phrase scholar-athlete very seriously. Bad grades and free rides in class are not his cup of tea. He believes in preparing the young men under his tutelage for a full life after college - whether or not they manage to make it to the NFL.

I received an excellent education in my years at Ohio State - even though there were times when I seldom attended classes. They kept giving me 8 o'clock classes and I don't DO mornings! A pledge in my sorority was persuaded to attend the class in my stead with a tape recorder. With over 500 students in each class (the leading edge of the baby boom don't you know), there was nobody taking attendance. Let the record show that I managed to "ace" most of those courses because my note taking was so first-rate!

Now, once again, the school I so proudly call my alma mater has managed to secure the Big Ten Championship. This coming Saturday, they are scheduled to play "that team up north" and then they will be playing the Pac-10 champions in the Rose Bowl. And I will, again, complain that the network broadcasting the game has not shown the Marching Band doing Script Ohio. It's on YouTube folks - I recommend it.

The elites who seem to think they are our rulers, not our employees, tend to look down their narrow noses at those of us who attended local and state-run colleges. Pfui on them. I got a great education at a reasonable cost, although I'm told that it isn't as affordable now as it was when I was there and it was only $100 per quarter! That's unfortunate.

Last night I stopped at Sis's house to pick up some back meds (OTC) from her because we have had a lot of rain lately and more is predicted. My back is totally out and I feel like my bum is sprained! Don't you hate when that happens?

Anyway, I went running into her house (limping is more accurate actually) and she was putting a good sized portion of freshly made potato soup into a plastic container for me to take home with me! Then she sprinkled the top of the soup with gorgonzola cheese, minced up tomato and green onion. When I got home, I had a spoonful of the soup and then I dove in because it was GOOD beyond my wildest imagination. I have to hand it to her - she's a great cook!

Then this morning, as I was struggling to get dressed and ready for work, I happened to spot Sam the Wonder Cat staying out of my way in the dining room, sound asleep on his back, all 4 paws sticking straight up in the air. I had to laugh. Not a bad way to start the day! He is, after all, the clown prince of Fredericksburg, Virginia.

Now they are seeking to take over the safety regulation of all the subway stations in this nation under their control.
The Obama administration will propose that the federal government take over safety regulation of the nation's subway and light-rail systems, responding to what it says is haphazard and ineffective oversight by state agencies.
Did it even begin to occur to these moronic twits that what they propose to do is unconstitutional? Of course it didn't.

A few things happened in this competition. Ryan Bradley of the U.S. utterly charmed me and the entire live audience during his free skate on Saturday. Skating to a selection of chamber music, Mr. Bradley performed 2 quads, a number of very difficult triple jumps AND he was utterly delightful while doing so. I haven't ever been a big fan of his, but any skater that can make Scott Hamilton giggle nonstop throughout a performance has to be doing something right.

Belbin and Agosto won the Ice Dancing gold medal to the surprise of absolutely nobody. Xue Shen and Hongbo Zhao turned in a workmanlike but flawed performance that was still many miles above what any of their competitors are putting out there. Evan Lysacek won the men's competition to the surprise of absolutely nobody, but Ryan Bradley was still a standout!

Now for my rant. Zoe BLANC and Pierre-Loup BOUQUET placed 8th in the ice dancing competition - they should have been deported before being permitted to sully the venue with their sloppy appearance. It was opined that they pride themselves on being cutting edge! Too bad they do not pride themselves on bathing and polishing their skates. Get a decent haircut and wash your hair. Do your roots, chica! They would be decent ice dancers if they'd quite trying so hard to be "cutting edge" and instead learned the basics of ice dancing - like good edges! A number of female skaters were not only guilty of dirty skate laces, some of them had the lack of respect for themselves and the occasion to show up with filthy SKATES as well.

Kim Yu-Na proved she was human by delivering a very flawed long program. She was, however, so far ahead in points that even Rachael Flatt's riveting performance could not prevent the pride of South Korea from winning the competition.

All in all, it was a very interesting and entertaining weekend of skating. The grooming issues aside, most of the skaters delivered halfway decent performances, although it was indeed distressing to see Emily Hughes back on the scene. The commentators kept commenting on how "in shape" she looked. I think she looked like she'd been hitting the mac and cheese a little too frequently at Harvard. Granted, she has never been a slender skater - but her ass and thighs are gigantic! That is not "in shape" to me. And frankly, she gets the attention that she does because of her vastly overrated older sister Sarah Hughes, Olympic gold medalist by accident! Emily Hughes simply is not that good a skater! She is merely mediocre.

Finally, I was sorry to see Sasha Cohen was unable to return to competition at Skate America. She would be an exquisite addition to the competitive ranks.


In his continuing effort to deny and denigrate American exceptionalism, our President was seen bowing to the Emperor of Japan. How many American Presidents have done this? One! The current occupant of the Oval Office. What is wrong with our president? Does he not listen to the people whose job it is to teach him protocol and proper behavior? Was TOTUS turned off that day? Is he an anti-American tool?

In the picture below, we can see him not showing proper respect to the American flag. Now this! Grounds for impeachment? Not just yet - but soon!

Self-proclaimed Sept. 11 mastermind Khalid Shaikh Mohammed and four other Guantanamo Bay detainees will be sent to New York to face trial in a civilian federal court, an Obama administration official said Friday. The official said Attorney General Eric Holder plans to announce the decision later in the morning. The official is not authorized to discuss the decision before the announcement, so spoke on condition of anonymity . . .
Has Holder lost his itty bitty little mind? Does he WANT to see New York City decimated by bombings? Does he want to see our economy totally destroyed by the clearly insane but still utterly dangerous jihadists?

I knew the appointment of Eric Holder was a huge mistake; I just didn't recognize how monumentally stupid it was! Our president is an idiot and even those of us who did not vote for him will pay the price! Again, and again and again!

I'm beginning to think my friend David is correct when he says that historically all republics fail after some 200-300 years due to the dead weight of its leadership as it evolves. Or non-leadership as the case may be. In our nation's case, political correctness is the poisoned arrow that is destroying one of the grandest experiments ever attempted by mankind!

That murderous son-of-a-bitch who slaughtered 14 fine Americans and put 30 additional fine Americans in the hospital (and having been in the hospital several times of late - in a GOOD hospital - I can tell you that putting someone in the hospital can qualify as "cruel and unusual" on any scale you'd like to name) who was shouting Allah Akbar and wearing his Jihadists draperies - he is just a misunderstood, stressed out sufferer of Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome ahead of the fact of actually being deployed into the war zone.

Give me a break!

Maj. Nidal Hasan committed an act of TERROR folks! Nothing less. And anyone who tells you to the contrary is (1) a fool or (2) an enemy of this nation. Period.

Unless and until we start calling terror precisely what it is when it happens, we are all going to be destroyed by these 7th Century lunatics. I'm not saying it is Islam's fault. What I AM saying is that it is RADICAL Islam's fault. It's entirely possible however that all Islam is Radical Islam but you can't prove it one way or the other by me!

Just go read this and you'll be pleasantly surprised.

Starting in 1775, this nation has always been blessed with heroes who have by their actions made this country not only possible but exceptional (yes, President Obama, EXCEPTIONAL). In a world that is p.c.-crazy, I refuse to be stomped into accepting that other countries have just as much claim to exceptionalism as do we. T'ain't so. They'd be speaking German in Paris were it not for us. And had Lyndon Baines Johnson not decided that he was a wartime tactician, South Vietnam would not be dominated by North Vietnam. There will always be an England but it might not be the England we know and frequently love, were it not for us. A lot of monuments would have bit it had our brave soldiers not joined in the European war effort. And had Harry Truman not made the tough decision to drop the A bomb on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, many hundreds of thousands of American and Japanese citizens might have died before the War in the Pacific ended. Were it not for our military, South Korea might not be as vibrantly free as it is today and it could not have produced the radiant Yu-Na Kim.

So thank you my dear Veterans. I appreciate your sacrifice and your hard work on behalf of a country that seems to only really express its gratitude once per year, another luxury you have won for us!

John Allen Muhammad will die via lethal injection tonight at 9 P.M. unless Virginia Gov. Tim Kaine grants clemency which he is unlikely to do. Muhammad's attorneys are claiming that the poor soul was abused and suffered from PTSD (which is a real illness and not something to be claimed lightly) and Gulf War Syndrome. This flies directly in the face of evidence offered at his trial which indicated that his intent was to kill his ex-wife and that the other killings were just done as a smoke screen to obscure his involvement. Either way - he fomented a reign of terror in the D.C. Metro area and Virginia as well (I was living in Ohio at the time but my sister was here and I was seriously frightened for her).

I'm conflicted about the execution because I do believe in the sanctity of human life (unlike Mr. Muhammad and his cohort Malvo) but I also believe that some crimes are so heinous that they beg for the death penalty and I also believe that once the death penalty has been imposed, it's cruel and unusual punishment to the families and friends of the victims to prolong things indefinitely!

UPDATE: I've never like our governor particularly but today he showed me something. He said as far as he could tell, the Courts had done a good job and he saw no reason to interfere or intervene. So the execution will take place tonight at 9 p.m.

Virginia has handled this expeditiously and since the Supreme Court has denied any involvement, and since Gov. Kaine has indicated a lack of interest in granting clemency - Mr. Muhammad will pay with his life for his despicable crimes!

UPDATE: Last night at 9:11 p.m., Mr. Muhammad breathed his last and was pronounced dead. He died as he lived, never once expressing the slightest bit of remorse for his evil deeds. At the end he even denied the families of his victims the satisfaction of knowing that he suffered, as he quietly closed his eyes, took a deep breath and left this world. Pfui on him and leave him to Satan or God - as the case may be. There's no possibility that Mr. Muhammad will ever come back and wreak havoc in the lives of any other innocent people.

The above-listed members of Congress who voted in favor of San Fran Nan's disaster of a health care bill deserve to be voted out of office in November 2010. It is up to the individual voters in the various states to see to it that these EMPLOYEES of Americans who do not want this unbelievable intrusion into our personal business and lives and who have made it clear that they do not want this despicable health care debacle to continue should be handed their "walking papers" as of next November 2010. It's up to us to chastise them suitably. They do work for us - however much they'd like to ignore that fact!
