Director Roman Polanski is sitting in a Swiss jail today while efforts to extradite him to the U.S. are ongoing. His supporters and his attorneys are all outraged that a 31 year old arrest warrant is being enforced! They state, for the record, and in all earnest lack of comprehension that after all, a long time has passed, the victim of Polanski's rape doesn't want him prosecuted and besides, the man is a genius and has already spent 40+ days in jail to answer to this charge.

I beg your pardon?

The average sentence for a convicted rapist is 288 months and heaven knows what the sentence would be for someone who rapes a child! An official familiar with the case had little sympathy for Polanski, pointing out that he raped a 13-year-old girl, pleaded guilty to a charge and then chose not to face imposition of whatever sentence a court was going to set. As the offender, the source said, Polanksi does not get to determine his punishment -- the legal system does.

I get such a kick out of liberals who think that one standard of legality should apply to them and another to the rest of us rubes out in flyover country!

Bring the kinky bastard back to this country, let him present his case of prosecutorial misconduct, renounce his guilty plea, whatever. But let him endure his day in court, just like any other sick s.o.b. who seems to think he is above the law!

We must and should remain vigilant vis-a-vis our egregiously incompetent President, his cabinet, his czars as well as the Senate and House of Representatives. I don't want to accuse them of being knaves and ne'er do wells, but how many of them have actually held a real job in the real world? 15% perhaps?

Our nation's founders never intended that we have a class of professional politicians sitting in the halls of Congress. They envisioned a system wherein wealthy landowners would contribute their time and wisdom to the nation a few months out of the year and then return to their normal pursuits for the rest of the year.

I find it fascinating that these feckless twits (well, let's be honest - most of them are less than that) who occupy both the House and the Senate do not even begin to understand that they work for the American people and not the other way around. And it's high time that they received an attitude adjustment.

They are all so happy to see us at their re-election rallies when they can hope to wrest a campaign contribution from us, and they are utterly dismissive of us when we express our opinions in public as we did on 9/12. President Bill Clinton has trotted out that old chestnut "vast right wing conspiracy" to explain the honest disapproval being expressed by American citizens toward President Obama's plans. Why does it have to be a conspiracy?

I will grant you that the self-righteous prigs of the Democratic Party (and a humorless bunch they are as well) honestly believe that we're too stupid to govern our own lives. They are so enamoured of their own intelligence and worthiness that they feel that if we don't do things their way, we're doomed! To that I say, as plainly as possible, horse feathers! Here's a bit of truth for all y'all. We "regular" Americans didn't create a corrupt group like ACORN. We "regular" Americans don't believe that our country needs to apologize for itself at every turn. We "regular" Americans are proud of our nation and consider getting it right in Afghanistan more important than going to Copenhagen to push an Olympics bid for the endlessly corrupt city of Chicago!

Does this President ever intend to leave "campaign mode" and start governing? Where our current president is concerned, the American people who voted for him really went for a "pig in a poke" and I have heard from many of them that they deeply regret their vote!

Remember 9/12 you morons! We aren't going away.

President Obama is so used to dealing with Madame Pelosi and the Cadaver from the Senate that he has probably become immune to crazy. But this past week, our President encountered crazy for real. Our lives will never be the same, methinks!

My theory is, if that pipsqueak in the White House is going to try to destroy the American way of life during his only term in office, I'm going to ENJOY and celebrate the American way of life at every opportunity.

So tomorrow, I will put on a pot of chili first thing in the morning so that it's ready to eat by the time the Ohio State game starts. I will bake a nice pan of corn muffins (with jalapenos). I will sit in the living room in my Ohio State sweatshirt, drinking iced tea out of my Ohio State chiller mug and, hopefully, enjoy both the OSU Marching Band ("TBDBITL") and an Ohio State victory.

Sunday morning, I will go to early Mass, then get a pedicure at 11 a.m. (TMI?) and then head on home to bake some goodies for my co-workers. This nice Catholic girl has the recipe for Mandelbrot and will make it for the staff and attorneys where I work. In honor of Yom Kippur. Leon - get your time entry to me please!

Bottom line, Dumbo the Flying Jackass may shake the foundations of our Republic but he won't kick them out from under us to the extent that we cannot recoup and repair. And the more we assert our American way of life in typically loud and exuberant tones, the more difficult will it be to unleash the depressing grind of socialism on this nation. It occurs to me that we may need and deserve this idiot's ascendancy - if only temporarily - to remind us of just how good we have it.

ON ANOTHER NOTE: Congrats to the Pittsburgh police department. You showed us how to keep order when there are crazies demonstrating and doing property damage. My mother was born in Pittsburgh and I always knew they produced good people for that reason!

This year, President Obama canceled [for the first time ever since its inception] the Annual Christian Breakfast.

However: ON THIS DAY.... Friday, September 25th, it is expected that upwards of 50,000 Muslims will participate in the reading of the Koran and prayers on Capitol Hill.

"The Athan [call to prayer] will be chanted on Capitol Hill, echoing off of the Lincoln Memorial, the Washington Monument and other great edifices that surround Capitol Hill"
Go to the website, consider Obama's roots and actions, and draw your own conclusion. Mine is simple: A moron was elected to the highest office in our land!

UPDATE: Let us pray:

What shall we pray? Paul said in Acts 17:22-23, 27 ". . . I perceive that in all things you are too superstitious. For I passed by and beheld your devotions, I found an altar to the UNKNOWN GOD. Whom therefore you ignorantly worship, Him I declare unto you . . . that they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after Him and find Him though He be not far from every one of us."
Let us pray that in their unawareness of the real One True God, and in their misguided sincerity, they will stumble upon the truth of Jesus Christ. Please make your local assembly aware of this event and your friends; then let us join together in prayer that the Lord Jesus Christ will do something earth-shaking on Friday as those lost people chant.
Let the True God be revealed to these hearts by whatever means the Lord chooses. Whatever happens, it is apparent that the American church must step up to the plate at this hour, and pray some powerful prayers.
This reminds us of Elijah on Mount Carmel in I Kings 18. After the false prophets prayed all day to the idols, Elijah stepped forward and prayed 63 powerful but simple words found in verses 37 -38, "Hear me, O Lord, hear me that this people may know that Thou art the Lord God . . . then the fire of the LORD fell . . . !"
Let us join together around the world and pray that the fire will fall upon the authentic sacrifice. We can do this because as Elijah said, "Let it be known this day that Thou art God in Israel!"
Let us pray I Kings 18:36-39. Lord, give us a true revival among the Muslims for the name of Jesus.

Let's just take a quick look at one of the more extraordinary features of a Midwestern College Football halftime! At least as it was when I was growing up and going to college, thank you very much!

You know you're in the Midwest when the classical music station is playing the Ohio State Fight Song all day long, every 15 minutes, on the Friday before each game. The entire town of Columbus, Ohio is Buckeye gaga every year. And Jim Tressel doesn't have to win national championships as long as he keep beating Michigan!

Watch the exceptional Ohio State Marching Band (The Best Damned Band in All the Land) and the incomparable, "Script Ohio".


A fellow named Creigh Deeds (D) is running against Bob McDonnell (R) for the Virginia Governor's office. Mr. McDonnell, a man with a specific agenda that is clearly spelled out in his campaign documents and in his television advertisements, began the campaign with a sizable lead against his opponent.

Creigh Deeds has put forth no agenda or plans for our state whatsoever and is so far running on only negative campaign ads which basically accuse Bob McDonnell of being a values voter who is opposed to abortion - over and over and over again! It may come as a surprise to Creigh Deeds that many Virginians are not big fans of the holy sacrament of the Democratic Party. I myself am adamantly opposed to abortion on demand or as a birth control method and most of my friends feel the same way. I do believe in the rights of the unborn and don't believe in murder or euthanasia.

Deeds is closing the gap. And that, my friends, is a damned shame. Creigh Deeds is a whining, ultra liberal and clueless dimwit who doesn't seem to have the slightest idea of what the governor of the Commonwealth of Virginia is to do in order to fulfill the demands of the job, but is apparently campaigning for the job simply because he wants it. Oh, and because he apparently wasn't a rich kid! Neither was I but I don't put myself forth as a candidate for governor. I don't consider myself qualified, although I do believe I am MORE qualified than that feeble moron being run for the office by the Dems. Do they honestly think we Virginians are sufficiently stupid to buy the Deeds Kool Aid being sold to us? Based on the polls, we are.

Dear merciful Lord - what is happening to our beautiful country?

Barack Hussein Obama is swanning about at the United Nations talking about how we are going to correct global warming in 2 seconds or less. I think our so-called President is a dunderhead most of the time but in this case, most egregiously so because the idea of global warming is a full on lie.

We are human beings and we cannot control hurricanes or earthquakes, let alone something as potentially disastrous as worldwide climate change, if it were happening, which it is not! The temperature of the earth has actually dropped over the past ten years, but the alarmists who are making careers from their junk science and boatloads of money as well are intent that you never know this!

These people have everything to gain from pushing their global warming agenda down your throats. It’s another scam folks so don’t buy into it!

It is my opinion that ACORN was not founded, nor funded, to be a corrupt, thuggish organization that would ultimately embarrass the President of the United States, assuming that actual embarrassment is in his repertoire!

The road to hell and all – that’s what I think of their good intentions. Now their hands have been found in the cookie jar and it is not seemly to use their disgrace and probable dissolution as grounds for our sniggering glee, as pleasurable as we might find it to do so.

The American people are not especially tolerant of that kind of behavior in the face of someone’s disgrace.

Where there is a vast sum of money involved, as was the case here, the temptation to play fast and loose with the rules can be overwhelming. And let’s be very realistic. The current administration has shown that running a business is not a part of the past experience of its members, nor is it within its realm of capability. The same can easily be said of ACORN – an enterprise which had a young attorney named Barack Hussein Obama in 1995 and an enterprise of which he denies any substantive knowledge. Given the fact that there is so damned much that our president doesn’t know, I’m inclined to believe him about ACORN.


Over the last few months, as regular readers will attest, I have been dealing with the effects of a long, enthusiastically lived life that involved - sometimes in equal parts - wine, good (or not so good) men and really good food. Once upon a long ago, I was an athlete and that, more than anything, may be what has kept me alive, despite myself!

In August and again this month, I have had the carotid arteries in my neck, both right and left and in that order, taken into an operating room (with me attached of course) and a roto-rooter job has been performed on them. My overall health is better than I deserve, but my poor beleagured arteries are showing the effects of too many quarter-pounders!

That my overindulgence has not killed me may be a testimony to my generally good health. I am as strong as an ox in most ways and am kept active thanks to Sam the Wonder Cat.

For what it's worth, I am immensely grateful to modern health care and to Mary Washington Hospital in Fredericksburg, Virginia for doing their part to care for me after the enormously talented (and rather cute) surgeon, Dr. Victor D'Addio cleaned up my self-made mess!

Would this excellent care been available to a woman of 67 years of age under the Obama health care scheme? I rather doubt it.

So crack open the pinot grigio kids. Thanks to privately held medical coverage, I'll live to bedevil our current administration at least another few days! Sam the Wonder Cat is very grateful. And I am very grateful for all the prayers that came my way. Their effect was definitely felt.

If I criticize the gentleman who is occupying the White House, I'm a racist. It doesn't matter if my criticisms are based on what he does, says or doesn't do or doesn't say - no matter what, criticizing Barack Hussein Obama makes me a racist.


Bob Beckel was on Fox News this weekend and opined that "only two" right wing voters were even aware that President Obama was stabbing Eastern European allies in the back (Poland and the Czech Republic to be specific) by reversing the agreement vis-a-vis the missile shield.

Loving our country does not mean we're stupid Beckel. In fact, making that unwarranted and indefensible statement proves that YOU SIR are woefully misinformed. I am fully informed and everyone I know is likewise fully informed. We are the people who are holding your messiah's feet to the fire for his lies. In my view, although his locution was inappropriate as to locale, Rep. Wilson is a hero to me! The only time President Obama is not lying is when his mouth isn't moving!

Speaking of misinformed - Bill O'Reilly is partaking once again of the Left's KoolAid averring that the District fire department said there were only 75,000 protesters in D.C. on 9/12. Anyone who has seen the footage shown on O'Reilly's network knows that the estimate is wildly off! But then, Bill O'Reilly is wildly off and is completely unwatchable! Incidentally, the bloviating gasbag O'Reilly got it way wrong. The National Park Service estimates 1 million or more.

What if an ACORN falls in the forest and nobody but one cable news outlet pays any attention? Does that mean that it didn't happen?

Even the Washington Post, and despite the Senate's vote to withhold further financing from ACORN last night (83-7 - fairly definitive vote), is not paying any attention to the building scandal involving ACORN being caught with their hands in the cookie jar of corruption! Gee, Mrs. Pelosi, it wasn't all that long ago that you were describing Republicans as having "a culture of corruption" and yet, it's your fellow Democrats who are displaying the acrid stink of ethical meltdown on a daily basis.

But then hypocrisy is the watchword of the Democratic Party these days - what with that despicable puppet occupying the White House (I'm sure George Soros has his hand up President Obama's shirt) and his endless lies about the Health Care Reform bill.

2010 is coming Madame Botox and with it the retribution of the voters you have had the effrontery to describe as "Nazis" and "silly" and all other manner of insults. No you stupid broad, we are your employers and we're about to see to it tht you're unemployed!

When I lived in California, I had the good fortune to briefly meet this talented young man and his beautiful wife since they just lived down the road from us, which is a very California thing.

He was lovely and gracious and charming and very very attractive! And now, he has lost his battle with pancreatic cancer and is in a place with no pain, no illness. Our hearts and prayers go out to his lovely wife, his marvelous and talented mother and his brothers, all of whom will be grieving the loss of someone so special.

He did give us "the time of our lives" and we didn't really know what a brief time we'd have with this talented and wonderful young man.


Aside from the problem we had with the incision continuing to bleed ever so slightly over the next 2 days, necessitating a trip to the emergency room on Friday night into Saturday morning (Thank you Linda) all is going well and I'm healing nicely. Thanks everyone for the prayers. I'm feeling very good, albeit a trifle woozy, but I'm attributing that to too much political news on TV.

Got a question. Are those idiots at ACORN actually planning to sue Fox News? That will give Fox News the right (and even the obligation) to closely examine your books and your past history in depth. Do you really think you want that?

Look at the bright side. At least they won't be involved with the census next year!

Left carotid artery receiving attention tomorrow morning EARLY (7:30 a.m.) and I will be home and recuperating until 9/21 when blogging will resume! Want to get it done before I'm condemned to an unhealthy old age by the Dems who think we're a disposable resource!

Van Jones has joined Reverend Wright, among others, under Obama's bus for those he uses and then discards - quite callously. What's most important is that the President now knows that we are watching him like a hawk and there isn't much wiggle room available. And we need to keep it that way. The person we most need to observe carefully and closely henceforth is one Valerie Jarrett. She is the person who claimed to have carefully vetted Jones and all the other feckless trivialities that The Won has nominated into positions of power in his administration.

Now don't get me wrong. I believe and support wholeheartedly the right of a President to surround himself with his own team. But it occurs to me that one requirement should be that the team chosen not be comprised of radical anti-American nimrods! It seems a small thing to ask, but an important one.

Meanwhile, one of the organizations that Van Jones founded has been working really hard to harm Glenn Beck and his show. Glenn's still there! Van Jones is gone. All is right with the world and God is in His heavens, looking out for us despite the fact that we don't deserve His kindness.

I'm really getting very weary of this Chicago politician/thug feeling he has the right to condescend to American citizens as though we were just a silly twits undeserving of his attention! It doesn't matter if he does it directly or through the mouth of his snarky Press Secretary Gibb. There's a young man who would benefit from having his mouth washed out with some Lava soap! Disrespectful mouth on him for sure!
WASHINGTON (AP) - The White House on Friday dismissed as pointless the furor over President Barack Obama's plan to deliver a televised back-to-school speech to the nation's students.

"I think we've reached a little bit of the silly season when the president of the United States can't tell kids in school to study hard and stay in school," presidential spokesman Robert Gibbs told reporters. "I think both political parties agree that the dropout rate is something that threatens our long-term economic success."

President Obama, buy a clue! The American people are your employer and we do not appreciate it when you feel compelled to smirk down your nose at us! If American parents find it objectionable for you to make a direct approach to their children, however benign, then you must respect that.

We deserve no less than that respect and will accept no less than that respect.

They have become scum-sucking, bottom-feeding whores who have about as much to do with real journalism as my cat!

Defense Secretary Robert Gates is objecting “in the strongest terms” to an Associated Press decision to transmit a photograph showing a mortally wounded 21-year-old Marine in his final moments of life, calling the decision “appalling” and a breach of “common decency.”

The AP reported that the Marine’s father had asked – in an interview and in a follow-up phone call — that the image, taken by an embedded photographer, not be published.

Then these cretins wonder why they are losing so much money and nobody wants to read their product any longer. They've self-destructed in a very real and public way, starting with the New York Times, the Washington Post and the Los Angeles Times. All of them and many others are mere shadows of their former admirable selves and do not deserve the trust and attention of honest Americans! This particularly saddens me because I was trained as a journalist during my undergraduate days. We were taught that ethics and fair dealing were qualities to be prized, and sensationalism was to be avoided. Clearly the AP hasn't learned this lesson, else they would not have found it acceptable to distribute this photograph nationwide over the objections of the Marine's father.

Shame on them. Shame on the newspapers who found it acceptable to use those photographs either online or in their print editions!

The hell of this is, due to their utterly despicable lack of ethics, the newspapers that were once essential to keeping our governing class honest, will be no more. It's up to the "new media" now, folks!

This young man is a hero to his hometown and now he's a hero to me as well!
A 14-year old girl got onto a school bus with 22 students (including Eulls) aboard, some of them little kids. Eulls was asleep in the back of the bus until one of his siblings awakened him.
Kaleb Eulls saved the lives of 22 students Tuesday morning.',

Eulls then opened up the emergency door located in the back and began evacuating as many students as he could from the rear of the bus while trying to reason with the armed female.

"I just tried to talk to her and calm her down," said the 6-foot-4, 255-pound Eulls. "She was just getting louder and louder. I guess for a quick second she looked out the window and when she did that I just sprung at her. I just knocked her down and got the gun away from her. When I got the gun I ran out the back door and disarmed it."

Eulls, who is a four-star defensive end that is verbally committed to play football at Mississippi State next year, was not concerned for his own well being at the moment. He selflessly did what he thought was the right thing to save the life of the others on board.

"I was just scared for the younger kids and my family that was on the bus," Eulls said. "I was just thinking things out step-by-step as quickly as I could. After we got to the school and watched the tape I just sat there thinking 'what in the world did I just do?' I just thought about what if this would have happened or if this would have happened? It was just crazy."
This is the kind of logical thinking under pressure that should be emphasized in our schools. Not the deification of a 2nd rate politician who got lucky!

I would vote for this young man. I didn't and never would vote for the other!

I was watching the YouTube clip of Michigan Congressman Rogers and his utterly sensible remarks on the current health care reform legislation. The entire time he was talking, you could see that nasty and ever-so-slightly-crazy Henry Waxman busily chit chatting with someone else sitting next to him and paying not the slightest bit of attention to what was being said.

Should they not be required to at least pretend they are doing the job we pay them to do? And shouldn't the chairman of a committee, in particular, make paying attention a primary goal?

I guess my thoughts were triggered by the utterly indefensible clips of some state legislators sitting in chambers during a debate playing solitaire on their (no doubt government funded) laptops!

They know nothing. They arrive with their agenda already well defined. They do as little as possible (not even reading the bill they are trying to cram down our throats) and they are doing their very best to screw up America!

Throw the bums OUT! As soon as possible.

Sis Linda and her sidekick Bobby pretty much closed up all of Sam's escape hatches on the screened in deck back in early August, but he is still in fine fettle when it comes to intimidating each and every dog in the neighborhood. He stands in front of the front screen door and hisses at them as they are walked by the house every afternoon, just to remind them that he's still around! I find it hilarious although some of the dog walkers are puzzled by why on earth their bulldog or German shepherd seems to be terrified of an ordinary house cat. Little do they know!

Once darkness has fallen and Sam is done hanging by the front door, he strolls back to my recliner, hops on my lap and chirps as if to tell me that he has done his job for the day! What a character. Is it any wonder that I love him so?

When I first started reading blogs, what seems like many years ago, I would never have imagined myself actually having a blog of my own and writing for it. More preposterous still was the idea that I would make great and good friends over the years, via the blogsphere, people who could and did comfort me when life handed me unmeasurable sorrow and who would celebrate with me when life (in its semi-balanced way) presented me with the opportunities for transendant joy. So it is that Beverly (Piano Girl) and Kitty (Kitty Litter) and Aaron (the most handsome proprietor of Lifelike Pundits) and the exquisite mother of the late, greatly lamented Baby and the now-courting Tiny, Miss Sissy all became utterly necessary parts of my life. And then there's the incomparable Anchoress (Elizabeth) and Michael of HNAV and the prickly Pat and then there's Paul of In My Taxi. They are all dear and beloved friends. Then there is Andrea in Florida and Dave Logan and Charles in Chicago and who keeps us apprised of the "Chicago Way" and too many others to mention.

They are all near and dear friends and I wouldn't trade one of them for anything on earth. They have encouraged me to write, something I very much enjoyed doing in my long-ago youth, and so I am writing. These exceptional people make me laugh, give me comfort when I cry, appreciate my (to some) unnatural attachment to Sam the Wonder Cat.

It isn't just that we share basic values (yes, Paul, even you), but we "get" each other's humor and point of view instantly.

We're facing a very bumpy time frame over the next year. It sure is good to know we have each others' backs! If they wish, the miserably dishonest Left (who assume that everyone is as corrupt as they) may make snide remarks about a Vast Right Wing Conspiracy, but those people going to the tea parties aren't part of any conspiracy. They are Americans, each and every one, who are standing up for what they believe is right. So to them also, these lovely roses are given. God Bless America. And God Bless AMERICANS!

A bill is now in Congress that would permit Zero to do the most insanely stupid thing he might want to do - shut down the Internet entirely (if that's even possible - IT experts' opinions requested here). He might be able to shut down AOL and/or Yahoo but it is my prediction that if he did so, the Iranian street demonstrations would appear to be a Sunday walk in the park in comparison to what His Nibs would experience here in this country.

The sleeping giant that is the average, normally compliant and quiet American citizen has already been awakened. And there are enough people in this country who know what procedures are involved in an impeachment trial forced by the American electorate who would help those of us who think that Zero is an anti-American "wholly owned" subsidiary of George Soros and his minions to bring it on - and no amount of lily-livered whiney Leftwing liberals would be able to stand against the American citizen thus aroused.

Remember when George W. Bush was intercepting the overseas phone calls of "suspect" Americans under the Patriot Act and the attacks of the vapors being had by the Left? We on the right don't have the vapors! We have the guns and the will to force the return of OUR government to OUR control. I am NOT advocating an armed rebellion - but I am fully cognizant that the wrong steps by the current administration might just piss off enough people that one might begin.
