Shen Xue and Zhao Hongbo are comfortably ahead in the Cup of China competition and their short program made it seem as though they had never been away. Their triple twist was a testament to his strength, their timing and her courage! I have no doubt, barring injury (heaven forfend) that they will win an Olympic Gold Medal for China. Consider that their coach was part of the first Chinese pair skating team and they were laughed at by the international figure skating community, so amateurish were their programs. From that very humble beginning, he has built a powerhouse in the area of pair skating and has recruited skaters who do honor to themselves, their coach and ultimately their country. Well done.

In other news, Tanith Belbin and Ben Agosto of the United States are well in the lead after the compulsory dances and the original dance. There is a wonderful synergy between these two - his in-your-face masculinity combined with her delicate beauty and strength! One can only say "wow" when watching these two.

It's gonna be a good weekend kids! Forget the clowns in Washington, D.C., none of whom can remotely approach the excellence and skill of the least of these competing skaters!

As an aside, I'm watching the competition on and just noticed that one of the advertisements along the "boards" is for Dairy Queen of all things! In China?

I comfort myself with anticipation of the humiliation to be dealt to our erstwhile president when Virginia votes in a highly qualified Republican as governor, and New Jersey does likewise. As thin-skinned as The Won has shown himself to be, he'll probably sob into his pillow for at least a month. "But Mommmmmmmmmmm! They were mean to me and wouldn't do what I told them to do. "

A better case of anticipation is this week's upcoming Cup of China competition wherein we will finally be able to enjoy the exceptional pairs skating of Shen Xue and Zhao Hongbo - two of the most extraordinary pair skaters I have ever seen (magnificent courage on her part and extremely well-developed athleticism combined with grace and beauty on both their parts - if you didn't believe that man - or in this case woman - could fly you should watch these skaters), excepting the revered and legendary Protopopovs (in their 70s they are STILL the gold standard in pairs skating - unbelievable). So plan your weekend around that particular pleasure. Especially you folks who live in the D.C. Metropolitan area - the Redskins aren't worth watching. NBC is broadcasting the competition on Sunday at noon!

You have to hand it to Redskins fans. They're a faithful lot, sticking with the team through absolutely horrendous season after season. But then I'd admire their faithfulness because I understand it. I am a fan of the Cleveland Browns, which has done me no good whatsoever for years.

His attention grabbing vituperative hate-speech vis-a-vis Republicans wasn't enough to paint him as a useless p.o.s., no, the dumb bunny had to make a comment about a "K Street Whore" that didn't even generate a ripple of protest from the crowd over at NOW. Turns out Rep. Grayson went to law school. He should know - but clearly doesn't - that what he said could be actionable speech. Here's the deal, if you call someone a name that CAN be proven to be wrong (like calling someone a bastard) proof can exist, such as a marriage certificate for your parents, showing that the name-caller was wrong - maybe maliciously so. On the other hand, if you call someone an s.o.b., that probably wouldn't be actionable because the commonly used name for a female dog is "bitch"! At the very least, it could be termed hate speech and thus not entitled to 1st Amendment protection.

Also, Grayson spent a whole four years as an economist (just like John F. Kerry spent a whole 4 months in Vietnam) - then he went haring off to law school and heaven only knows what else so how does his hubris qualify him as an expert on all matters economic?

Bottom line: Grayson doesn't really mean 50% of what his mouth spews - it's all an attention-grabbing ploy on his part. Nobody knew, or cared, who he was before he started running his ignorant mouth! And it's my opinion that Grayson is also offensively ugly, reflecting the ugly that lives within!

Today's edition of the Fredericksburg, Virginia Free Lance-Star carried a story on President Obama campaigning for gubernatorial candidate Creigh Deeds on Monday. I don't know if it was an intentional editorial decision or a happy accident, but the article appeared on the same page as the obituaries!

I'm just saying.

From Andrea Shea King's newsletter:

Russia is offering to modernize Cuba's deteriorating weapons systems – installed when the former Soviet Union was expanding worldwide – and it also wants to reactivate a sensitive electronic eavesdropping station on the nearby island at Lourdes, use Cuba as a base to refuel its bombers and a port to replenish supplies on its warships, according to a report from Joseph Farah's G2 Bulletin.

These developments emerged following the visit to Cuba in late September by Gen. Nikolai Makarov, chief of the Russian General Staff. Makarov met with Cuban President Raul Castro in Havana.

Cuba's Soviet-made military equipment has been falling apart. After an assessment, the Russian military has decided to undertake a comprehensive modernization. In addition, the Cuban army also will receive Russian military training.

Here we go again folks. Our president is rightfully perceived by the world, particularly the Russians, as weak (beyond weak would be my perception of him - my cat has more courage). Therefore, they start dipping their toe in the water of being aggressive toward our nation. Will our president, who thinks of himself as a modern day JFK do anything about it or will it be more chin music from The Won!?

This event was notable for the justifiably lauded return of Yvgeni Plushenko. Watching this man skate can bring nothing but pure pleasure, simply because he is so happy to be out on that ice. At age 27, he is at the height of his considerable powers and it is refreshing to see a skater whose jumps don't give you the nervous twitches.

On the other hand, can we talk about the U.S.'s Johnny Weir? He claims to be fully prepared and trained and yet he skates like a nervous virgin in a maximum security prison! I don't mean to be nasty, Johnny, but number one - at age 25 - you are no longer a "Johnny" and should be more of a "John". Second, if you weren't so concerned about your posing and preening on the ice, perhaps you could land a jump or two? I'm just saying! It's clear from looking at Plushenko that one doesn't need feathers and sequins (dear merciful heavens - in profusion no less) to be a respectable skater. What one needs is the heart of a champion. Plushenko has it; Weir does not!

Pang and Tong won the pairs title. Is it too much to ask that she get a decent haircut and new skate laces that are CLEAN? You are skating at an elite level. Surely your federation will treat you to new laces and a visit to a good hair cutting salon! Good grooming shows respect for self and respect for the event.

Keanu McLaughlin and Rockne Brubaker placed well. Is it strictly necessary for Keanu McLaughlin and Meryl Davis to talk like retarded 4 year olds? They are both very talented skaters. Listening to them being interviewed is excruciating!

Congratulations to the incandescent Miki Ando on winning the ladies' title over her vastly overrated teammate Mao Asada! I beat myself up about this because I find it despicable that I sometimes root against people (a character flaw - I'm working on it) but Mao Asada gives off an air that she is entitled to place well because she's well - entitled! And has anyone thought about doing something about her cross-eyes? Might help her performance; it sure would make her easier to look at.

We actually placed first in an ice dancing event! Huzzah! Hoorah! Davis and White were excellent, although this early in the season, I'm sure they'll be improving their program incrementally.

Next weekend - another competition! Meanwhile, the "Return of the King" was the theme of this competition and Plushenko was infectiously joyful thoroughout! I don't normally enjoy seeing this kind of thing - but even him holding up his forefingers toward the end of his long program - showing that he's number one, wasn't offensive! Just endearingly amusing.

Have Michelle buy you a pair of "big boy" panties and start wearing the damned things, Mr. President. Okay, Fox News criticizes you. I realize that you think you are the second coming of the Lord, sir, but in sober truth - you just aren't! You are a charming, charismatic Chicago ward heeler who lucked into the highest office in the land without any qualifications or abilities to fulfill the office. Yes, you are criticized. Do you think you are criticized any more than your predecessor? Trust me, if you had to bear the weight of unjustified and unfair calumny that George W. Bush endured during his 8 years in office, you'd be curled up on your bathroom floor in a fetal position, sobbing your little heart out! Take an "adult" pill and start acting like the President of the greatest country on earth. Quit being a whiney little brat. The American people and those idiots who voted for you all deserve better.

Incidentally, my cousin was driving to Home Depot (planning to infuse a little $$ into the economy) when he passed a p.o.s. car putting along with a sticker that proclaimed support for "Obama/Biden". He tooted at her and when she rolled down her window he said, "I like your bumper sticker. Nice that you're accepting responsibility for what you did." She gave him the finger and drove off. Shows the mental maturity of most of your supporters, doesn't it? Yep! We're all screwed unless you grow a pair and start behaving like a President.

After 4 years away from competition, the delightful and talented Yvgeni Plushenko is back and competing at what used to be called The Cup of Russia competition. He's 27 years old now and I'm sure the "young guns" in Russian skating, none of whom can hold a candle to Plushenko's style, technical ability and charm, are not exactly bubbling over with joy at his return and yet, since he is willing to put his body through the rigors of training Plushenko is doing Russian men's figure skating an enormous favor. Thanks to the pathetic showing of Russian men at the most recent World championships, Russia only has two spots at the 2010 Olympics for the first time in as long as I can remember. Plushenko will see to it that this doesn't happen again! And in his short program he once again proved that he owns the quad and is a skater with whom the world must reckon.

Welcome back, dear lad! You're growing up into someone I can and do respect!

Let's first eschew the reflexive "hell no" response of many who are delighted by Glenn Beck's virtual bomb throwing at the Left's agenda.

To me, the question can and should be divided into two categories. Rush Limbaugh is a wholly distinct category from Glenn Beck.

I cannot take Glenn Beck seriously. He is too much the naughty little boy dropping his britches in the public square to horrify his parents and scandalize the passing crowd. It doesn't mean that he gets his facts wrong, however, and so from that standpoint, I am of two minds about the Peck's Bad Boy of punditry. If he could dial back just a trifle on the outrageous locutions, he might be an effective mainstream pundit.

Rush Limbaugh has been around for what seems like forever. He is and always has been a burr under the saddle of any and all left-wing dopes trying to flimflam the American public into believing the latest load of bullshit being peddled by the great and [temporarily] powerful! Rush is Rahm Emanuel's worst nightmare and I'm sure it must be frustrating as hell to President Obama's nasty butt boy that he can't just wave his magic wand and wish Rush out of existence. Note to Rahm: Better men than you have tried, bucko, and have failed miserably! I don't always agree with Rush Limbaugh but I always love him and I always respect his intelligence and credentials as a conservative pundit. Demonizing him, as the White House is attempting to do, only makes him stronger.

All this White House posturing vis-a-vis Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh and Fox News is by no means anything other than a miserably pathetic attempt to distract the American public (the right leaning portion of it anyway) from the fact that the Obama administration is attempting to frog march us into outright socialism at an astonishing clip! And no, neither Rush nor Glenn Beck pose any serious impediment to the Republicans recapturing a plethora of House and Senate seats in 2010. The case in favor of that happy prospect is being made quite capably by the White House and the current administration.

I am a conservative Republican woman; have been one all my life and am not in the least ashamed of my political stance. My question to anyone who is not a conservative is, why in hell not? What's wrong with your critical thinking apparatus? Are you daft?

The Obama White House has foolishly declared war on Fox News Network. This is stupid behavior because it (a) thoroughly exposes the thuggish nature of the President's staffers and (b) displays for all the world to see just how thin-skinned Barack Hussein Obama really is!

So here's the deal. Make yourself a list of Fox News Channel advertisers. Christmas is coming and what discretionary Christmas shopping dollars we have should go to those good folks. And, make sure when you are shopping at these stores, we let them know we are shopping there because they advertise on Fox News Channel. Maximum benefit for minimum effort in my view!

The Roman Empire crumbled into bits in around 476 A.D. Some of the causes cited for this "fall" included Christianity, decadence, lead, monetary trouble and military problems all contributed although studies conducted at The Ohio State University cite the following causation:
  1. Economic (lack of circulating currency and trade deficit, and other factors not clearly economic, like environmental change and decaying infrastructure);
  2. Military (citizenship granted to all reduced the incentive to joint the army), and
  3. Gradual transformation from a pagan society to a Christian society and the internal struggles that resulted from resisting the imposition of Islam.
If any of those three above-listed factors look familiar, perhaps that explains the feeling of malaise we seem to be suffering at the moment. Certainly our country is experiencing a decaying infrastructure as well as monetary implosions of various kinds. In addition, we have a president who possesses no understanding of the military of which he is Commander in Chief, an "open borders" attitude toward illegal immigration and an only ephemeral adherence to Christianity in any form. As to decadence, one only has to look at our Hollywood folk who believe that someone may care about where their political impulses lead them, despite their clear inability to reason coherently, and despite the lives of moral turpitude most of them lead.

I think what is happening is something that we can and will be able to resist and change but not without some sacrifice and hard work on our part. We must not allow the Leftists to set and control our national dialogue; nor should we allow them to suppress or stifle altogether the voices of responsible opposition, as the White House is now attempting to do with Fox News.

It occurs to me that Barack Hussein Obama rarely put a foot wrong during his seemingly endless run for the White House. I don't think he ever gave a thought to the possibility that he might win and need to govern and that is why he is so clumsily incompetent now. Mr. President, I respectfully suggest that we aren't a banana republic and the American people will never countenance being treated as if we are! We won't do things just because you say so, we won't accept incursions on our liberty in the name of whatever snake oil you are trying to sell. In other words, we won't allow you to continue your destruction of our beautiful country in pursuit of your socialist aims. I don't even think they are your socialist aims; it occurs to me that you are an empty vessel being directed by George Soros, that ultra wealthy, anti-Semitic Jewish money manipulator who dislikes a country he cannot control and wants to either run us according to his own weird schemes or destroy us if we won't cooperate. He is doomed to fail. We, the American people, will see to it.

The Rev. Al Sharpton is ready for a Rush to judgment.

The civil rights leader, typically impervious to insults, said Saturday that he will sue Rush Limbaugh for defamation unless he gets an apology from the right-wing radio host.

Sharpton was outraged by a Limbaugh op-ed piece in The Wall Street Journal that blamed him for the 1991 Crown Heights riot and a 1995 killing spree at a Harlem store.

"I am definitely going to prove he makes reckless, unaccountable statements," Sharpton said. "Which is why he was forced out of buying an NFL team in the first place."

What good reputation does Al Sharpton have that could be damaged? He's a race baiting, anti-Semitic hustler who makes his living inflaming the worst aspects of our natures.


Target, predictably, caved in spinelessly to the bleating of some broad claiming to be a spokesperson for oppressed illegal aliens when they removed this Halloween costume from their stores. What a load of horse puckey that is. Why should anyone, least of all a French corporation, give a rap about the injured feelings of people who broke the law to come to our country and who now claim endless rights as a result? Screw 'em - let them go back where they came from! We don't want them here and they should buy a clue! People who have illegally entered my country and are making any kind of offended noises are definitely not welcome here.
Sense of humor transplant needed here!

By the way, didn't Mexico used to behead illegal aliens and send their heads back to our country? I'm just saying.

El Rushbo (as he is affectionately known by somedamnbody) was dropped from a group of investors who were planning on buying the St. Louis Rams. As a former Angeleno, I can tell you that nobody wanted the Rams when they were in Los Angeles and why anyone would want them now is beyond my ken! Whatever!

Immediately, our favorite and dependably vocal race-baiting chuckleheads started running their hate-filled mouths, claiming that Limbaugh has said all manner of hateful things about people of color. To that, I reply, bullshit!

It is absolutely true that Rush Limbaugh said none of the things of which he is accused. None. Zero. Zip. Nada! Still, pinheaded babblers repeated these foul and untrue canards ad nauseum on the premise that if you say it often enough - it will become true! Again, horsefeathers!

Last night , Juan Williams and some other young sprout were on O'Reilly. The young man in shrill tones insisted that he still considered Rush Limbaugh a racist because back in 1970, Rush Limbaugh told a radio caller to "take the bone out of his nose"! This whiney young punk wasn't even alive in 1970 (39 years ago, for heaven's sake) and now that the original charges have been proven utterly false (and in fact it has been proven that some left wing clown started circulating the dishonest charges a while ago), the left is casting about for some other way in which to smear Rush Limbaugh. It must be said that Juan Williams, a liberal, was a whole lot more reasonable and intelligent in his views last night! He kind of had a disgusted look on his face as the puppy was blathering on about how maybe Rush didn't say those things he had been accused of saying, but he still was a racist based on the "bone" remark! Give me a flipping break!

Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson, a pair of racial hucksters down to their toes have no room to talk about Rush Limbaugh although that didn't stop either of them. It was, after all, Rev. Jackson who made the "hymietown" comments. And where do we start with Al Sharpton? Tawana Brawley? Instigating riots and the destruction of Jewish owned businesses? Talk about your basic pair of whitened sepulchres! They are both anti-Semitic and only open their mouths when there is profit to be made!

Throwing around the charge of racist is easy to do and difficult to shake. In a nation where "innocent until proven guilty" is the rule of law, it is left to the accused in a charge of racism to prove that the charge is untrue.

And let's be very honest folks, the people in the NFL aren't angels either. Michael Vick and dogfighting? Over 200 of the NFL's roster having felony convictions to their names? If your hands are unclean, you cannot criticize others. My feeling is that, much as Rush Limbaugh adores the game of football (and it's well known that he does) he is better off not being involved with those people. And yes, I agree with Rush Limbaugh that Donovan McNab is overrated. And not because I'm a racist. I agree because I have watched McNab play! He's good, but he isn't all that! And, despite their best efforts, the Left has never been able to get rid of Rush Limbaugh (or for that matter any conservative radio personality) and it drives them nuts that he just keeps going from strength to strength, despite setbacks and personal demons, becoming more successful and more rich with every passing year. They cannot even throw jibes at his weight any longer (some of them still try), because the man lost 80 pounds recently!

UPDATE: Now on Hot Air comes a spirited and brilliant analysis of this awful debacle written by the incomparable Doctor Zero, including this trenchant paragraph:
The events of the past week were about more than simply thwarting Limbaugh’s desire to buy into a football team. There was the naked greed of parasites like Al Sharpton, desperate to maintain his relevance in a world that has wisely stripped him of the power to destroy a man’s life with a phony rape allegation, or launch murderous riots. There was the blind personal hatred of Limbaugh, by people who long ago tired of watching him rewrite their plans for the part of America that refuses to submit to them. And, of course, this was the latest offensive in a bitter war against the ideas that Limbaugh has long served, as their most cheerful and effective defender. Limbaugh’s enemies in that war are angry because they’re frightened. They’re frightened because all of their estimates and projections said they should have been able to claim victory by now.

The easy answer is "Hell to the 'no'!" Don't you understand, we are helpless idiots, unable to manage our own lives without their supervision? We cannot select what to eat intelligently. We cannot stop doing things that are perceived as unhealthy, such as smoking (and heaven help me, I miss it!). And of course, our legislators (both the House and the Senate) are all so very skillful in managing their own lives. Just ask Charlie Rangel's advice on tax planning. Just ask Rep. Jefferson how useful a freezer is as a bank.

Hundreds of thousands of Americans marched in the streets at the Town Hall meetings and on 9/12 in the streets of Washington, D.C. I would think the sight of so many previously quiet and compliant Americans being so fed up with their elected representatives would have made it clear to our "betters" in the Congress that we aren't in the mood for their shit any longer. But no, they dissed those good people (who happen to be their EMPLOYERS) and ignored what they were saying.

Maybe they'll finally, finally get the message in November 2010 when we boot their asses out of their cushy jobs and send them packing!

The striking differences between Conservatives and Liberals:

* If a conservative doesn’t like guns, he doesn`t buy one.
* If a liberal doesn't like guns, he feels that no one should have one.

* If a conservative is a vegetarian, he doesn`t eat meat.
* If a liberal is a vegetarian, he wants to ban all meat products for everyone.

* If a conservative sees a foreign threat, he thinks about how to defeat his enemy.
* A liberal wonders how to surrender gracefully and still look good.

* If a conservative is homosexual, he quietly leads his life.
* If a liberal is homosexual, he loudly demands legislated respect.

* If a black man or Hispanic are conservative, they see themselves as independently successful.
* Their liberal counterparts see themselves as victims in need of government protection..

* If a conservative is down-and-out, he thinks about how to better his situation.
* A liberal wonders who is going to take care of him.

* If a conservative doesn’t like a talk show host, he switches channels.
* Liberals demand that those they don’t like be shut down..

* If a conservative is a non-believer, he doesn’t go to church.
* A liberal non-believer wants any mention of God or religion silenced.

* If a conservative decides he needs health care, he goes about shopping for it, or may choose a job that provides it.
*A liberal demands that the rest of us pay for his.

A big shout out and thank you to Bookworm for this wonderful and thoughtful analysis!

Took the lovely "Sis" to lunch on Saturday. Wanted to thank her for taking such good care of me while I was being chopped and dropped (so to speak). Went to a place called Smokey Bones where we were informed that appetizers were half price (therefore we had 2 of them) and then we followed up with a 7 oz. sirloin steak with sides. I haven't had that much for lunch in over a year! Talk about stuffed.

Fell asleep watching Ohio State's defeat of Wisconsin about 2/3 of the way through. When I awakened, the game was over! Spent the entire afternoon loving on Sam the Wonder Cat who didn't enjoy that even a little bit. LOL!

Yesterday, had friend Bobby over to clean up the front yard for the winter months! It looks so nice and crisp and tidy! I just love it. Did some laundry, made a pot of beef stew (with beer in it) and went to bed early.

I love the autumn months. Chillier weather, college football and a comfortable home. That's called living the American Dream - and if that jugeared s.o.b. has plans to take that away from me, he'll find a veteran [and skillful] political operative fired up and aiming her best moves in the direction of the Democratic Party.

The Winter Olympics will be starting in Vancouver, Canada in approximately 120+ days. The events will take place in a gloriously beautiful setting with all the beauty the American and Canadian Northwest has to offer.

We will be fielding an interesting team. The qualifications for the team have not yet taken place but I think you can expect Alissa Czizny and Evan Lysacek to be on the team along with Tanith Belbin and Ben Agosto. I hate to be a grumpy old broad, but I really do think Rena Inoue and John Baldwin have gone as far as they are ever going to be able to go and I do wish they would get out of the way and let some other, more promising team take their place on the American team.

I see a great big limb looming ahead of me and I'm recklessly going to scramble out on that limb. The incomparable Shen Xue and Zhao Hongbo will challenge strongly for the Pairs Gold and it is my belief that they will win it easily. They are just magnificent skaters, albeit they are somewhat older than most of the field. I just harbor a burning desire to see them with a gold medal around their necks. Their courage and grace and the sheer beauty of their skating makes it a deserved honor.

It won't be long now, folks, when once again I will be in the throes of my favorite obsession which includes watching incredible performances whilst bitching about dirty skate laces and dark roots! Here's a foretaste: It's the Olympics ladies. Get the roots done beforehand and buy some new, clean, laces for your skates!

UPDATE: How on earth did I manage to overlook the shimmering beauty of Yu-Na Kim of South Korea. She is technically brilliant and beautifully trained (courtesy of the extraordinary Brian Orser) and she is lyrical and musical in her presentation - and stands head and shoulders above any of the other female skaters. In the Grand Prix Paris this past weekend, this magnificent young woman was a full 36 points ahead of her nearest competitor, former World Champion Mao Asada!

Barack Huseein Obama, the big Zero, has won the Nobel Peace Prize due to what a Russian commentator called "lots of nice words, no deeds"! When I heard it on the news this morning, I honestly through that Steve Doocy was kidding. But nay, it is true! In a lifetime of getting major credit for minor accomplishments, this is the pinnacle! Only Satan could produce such a overweaning nothingness being perceived as worth attention! I'm convinced of it. Our completely incompetent president is the most colossal fraud in the history of frauds! P.T. Barnum would be so proud of him.

The Norwegians are NUTS and the people who nominated Zero are either crazy or purely evil!

A senior aide to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) told that it is “likely” that Reid will use H.R. 1586—a bill passed by the House in March to impose a 90-percent tax on bonuses paid to employees of certain bailed-out financial institutions—as a “shell” for enacting the final version of the Senate’s health care bill, which Reid is responsible for crafting.

Under the procedure, the substance of House Resolution 1586 would be removed and replaced with the entire Senate health care package. The maneuver would initially require the support of 60 senators to vote for cloture on the motion to proceed to H.R. 1586 (i.e., end debate on the congressional procedure and move forward).

If Reid wins 60 votes, then debate begins on his health care package. Reid could then decide to block all amendments and attempt to get a vote on the entire package.
H/T Curmudgeonly & Skeptical website!

Nice going you despicable snakes! You know that Americans don't want your freaking bill and you're going to ram it down our throats by stealth. Can't even screw us in the unforgiving light of day, can you? I have a message for you from the American people. Your run is OVER. Come November 2010, you will be unemployed. In fact, many of you should and may be prosecuted for malfeasance and just generally being buttheads! Isn't there a law against being an asswipe? There ought to be!
and why they should knock it off!

Golda Meir famously opined that the Arab/Israeli conflict would cease when the Arabs loved their children more than they loved killing Israelis! Jon and Kate Gosselin - take note.

It doesn't matter one whit to me who is right and who is wrong. I'm delighted that Jon Gosselin shut down that execrable show on TLC - and it should have been done a couple of years ago. Kate Gosselin is so doggone money-hungry that she'd never do it on her own. In any event, the show cannot have been healthy for any of the children and, in point of fact, the twins have begun to believe that what they say at age 9 has some world shaking value! I ended up watching a Memorial Day marathon broadcast of the show out of sheer desperation and thus had an almost week-to-week view of the goings on. Mady is a full on version of her mother - emotional and totally bitchy. The other twin, Cara, is much easier to take. The little kids are like 5-year-olds everywhere: obnoxious, whiney and shriekey. Who needs to see that?

Throughout, Kate Gosselin treated Jon as though he was a grease spot under her feet, while she made it a point to have all manner of appearance enhancing treatments - including subjecting us to the tummy tuck she had to have after carrying six babies to term! She's had her teeth done (for free), and she gets tanning (you're a nurse for heavens sake Kate - don't you know how unhealthy that is?) and she flies all around the country doing book signings and personal appearances. She has that horrendous bi-level skunky hairdo and is apparently very dedicated to adorning herself! Her self-adulation is almost an 11th character on the show.

She has managed to have their kitchen remodeled for free and to have "little houses" erected on the property for the entertainment of her children - again for free. Who has been left at home with the kids? Jon Gosselin, that's who.

Bottom line: The parents are getting a divorce and this is going to be hard on the kids. It always is. I was 25 when my parents divorced and it devastated me despite the fact that I knew full well that the divorce was saving my mother's sanity and her life!

The original arrangement was that Jon would be with the kids when Kate was off flying around on her self-aggrandizement trips. All Kate really seems to care about is having the house cleaned and organized and that her children march in lock step like little automatons! Jon genuinely seems to love his children and - despite her control freak tendencies - Jon is a better and more even-handed disciplinarian than the children's mother! And Jon is the one who originally had a fairly good paying job that he was forced to give up because of Kate's grasping money-grubbing.

Apparently Kate is of the mind that all income to the family from TLC or other sources should belong to her and her alone. Wrong, beyatch! Jon is entitled to some of the funds and you having 11 bank accounts and him not having knowledge of or access to any of those accounts is just plain wrong.

It's time for the two of you to take your dispute into obscurity and quit pestering us with your dysfunction! Get your divorce, divy up the loot, and quit providing your 8 children with the need to see shrinks for the rest of their lives! I would, however, suggest that you two be forced to put that $1.3 million house and property into a trust account irrevocable and in the names of your 8 children. They've earned a secure home. And Jon, since you don't seem to have been able to sell your original house, rather than renting a pricey New York apartment, move in there why don't you? At least until you can sell it and remove that additional mortgage from the books. Perhaps an inhabited, somewhat furnished house will sell more easily, despite the poor market. After all, it's the Gosselin's former home.

That raging sociopath, Nancy Pelosi, promised "the most ethical Congress in History" when she took over as Speaker of the House (right before she declared herself the most powerful woman in the world - a claim Angela Merkel might dispute)!

How then to explain the "motion to refer" tool used by Madame Speaker yesterday to protect that monument to unethical conduct, Charlie Rangel!? As it stood, 243 Democrats voted (almost as one - resembled a setup but that would be an incorrect assessment - wouldn't it?) to protect the tax dodger who seems to have withheld reporting some $1.3 million in income to the IRS.

While I am no fan of the jackbooted thugs of the IRS, in this particular case, it may well be that they will be no respecter of Madame Botox's favorite sacred cow Rangel and haul his dishonest ass out of Congress and off to prison for his conduct! Just think - this is the man that La Pelosi has placed in the chairmanship of the Ways & Means Committee (the people who write tax code). The man she protects with what little prestige and respect she still may possess!

According to an article I read this morning online, the Department of Homeland Security is upset with Sheriff Joe of Arizona because he is performing the job that DHS should be performing - finding and deporting illegal entrants into our nation.

The department of Justice and other federal agencies are investigating the sheriff’s office on accusations of racial profiling during the operations, the paper says.
Well hell, we should be expressing concern over illegals crossing our borders in massive numbers, considering that some of those unwelcome and unwanted lawbreakers are here for reasons inimical to America's best interests! You know, like terrorism and the like?! It wasn't the Swiss who brought down those Twin Towers or blew a hole in the Pentagon!

When are we going to be less politically correct and more real!? We cannot just be all kumbaya with people and some of those people do not have our best interests in mind. In fact, they wish us harm. And all of our president's spineless apologizing and groveling won't change a damned thing.


All us poor schnooks who actually through our elected EMPLOYEES in the House and Senate were hearing what we were saying to them about the health care plan boondoggle, are being "punked" by our President and our elected employees! Flopping Aces has the entire story.

Why let a some strongly verifiable facts get in the way of a good shuck and jive routine folks? Al Gore and his confreres are making a bloody fortune over their ridiculous global warming scam! It's barely 70 degrees outside and yet Gore and his pals are running around screaming "The sky is falling, the sky is falling!" for all the world like a demented chicken. Natural gas supplies are up. Winter is soon upon us. Daylight savings time hasn't ended (I WANT my hour back) but when it does, we'll be moving into the official start of winter.

A "reliable source" has even made what I consider to be the most awesomely stupid remark of all time when that person said that the current lowered temperatures are exacerbating global warming! Huh? Really? Naw.........!

That is a fair description of most of the White House staffers, including Robert Gibb, the president's press secretary.

To say that this is the most thin-skinned administration in my lifetime is understatement. I well remember Harry Truman's fury at General McArthur or the N.Y. Times critic who was unkind to Margaret Truman's singing voice. But that was a manly kind of "seeing red" that one would more or less expect from a president. Not the bloodless whining of "It's not fair" we seem to be hearing more and more from the crowd at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

Here's a radical thought for a bunch of cretins who seem to adore radical thoughts: Give up the endless campaign and actually start to govern! It might be fun; it certainly might be risky but it's what the American people are paying you for, President Obama. We aren't paying you to take the First Lady out for dinner to celebrate 17 years of marriage. We aren't paying you to undertake a trip to Copenhagen to try to secure the 2016 Summer Olympics for Chicago, Illinois. That trip should have been taken by the Governor of Illinois and Mayor Richard Daley, not you, and certainly not your wife who treated the IOC members as though they were her servants! What an unpleasant woman you are married to, Sir! Demeaning and demanding and altogether unsuitable to be First Lady. But then, you are unsuitable for the Presidency, incompetent and unprepared. Unable to govern and it has absolutely nothing whatsoever to do with race! You are still voting present!

So you thought that ACORN's funding had been pulled by the House and Senate? Then you thought wrong! Just listen to this interview by Rep. Michelle Bachman! Smoke and mirrors, folks, smoke and mirrors!

And lest the left wing get all agitated, I am not advocating the failure of this presidency - far from it. I want this presidency to succeed at least to the point where it doesn't harm my country! And all of us should hope that President Obama succeeds at least that much. I'd like to see him do even better than that. I just don't think it's in the cards. Between his wife's manipulations, his own inexperience, incompetence and hubris, babycakes doesn't stand a chance, but I still hope for OUR sake that he's not quite the doofus that I'm very much afraid he truly is.

I received this from a good, almost-always reliable friend, so read it for what it's worth. I find it believable:

Yes, there is anti-American sentiment in the International Olympic Committee's snub of Chicago.

But again, it has been caused by Barack and Michelle Obama not by George W. Bush.

Chicago was by far the frontrunner a week ago.

Then, Michelle went to Copenhagen and insisted each one of the 106 delegates meet her privately and separately in her luxurious hotel room.

There she browbeat each one and insisted they vote for Chicago.

Read the European newspapers.

What an arrogant, silly bitch.

The European Union - with 27 member states - was already furious with Obama for snubbing Britain and treating Prime Minister Gordon Brown like some tinpot leader, even with Britain being America's best ally, embarrassing French President Nicolas Sarkozy, and betraying Poland and Czechoslovakia on missile defence - basically suggestng if Russia wanted Poland and Czechoslovakia and decided to take the countries by force the U.S. would do nothing to protect them. And Poland and Czechoslovakia are members of the European Union.

On top of these issues, when Brown gave her a miniature bronze bust of Sir Winston Churchill she sent it back to 10 Downing Street saying she wanted nothing to do with an "imperialistic" leader.

She didn't even realize but for Churchill refusing to surrender to Nazi Germany - and thereby giving the U.S. a landing strip in Europe - Adolf Hitler - the worst racist in modern times - would have won the war.

Where would the blacks be then?

So, Chicago went from being the frontrunner to getting a scant 18 votes and tossed out on the first bllot.
Karma IS a bitch! And I was starting to harbor some kind feelings for our First Lady - at least in comparison to her clumsily ignorant husband!

Many family members, sometimes me - although not always - have always blamed Eugene K. for our dear David's drug overdose death. Bottom line - David made poor choices and while Eugene may have been a "contributor" - it was David's choice to take that poison. Subsequently, and through her own intention, David's grieving mother died of a massive stroke. When David died she adamantly refused to take any of her diabetes or high blood pressure medications. She also made a number of direct attempts to kill herself.

Now Eugene has died of a brain aneurysm, I'm told, and at age 27, a bright and charming young man has gone from us and from his grieving parents.

Drugs are the bane of human existence and young men who think they are immortal have a great ability to find themselves dead as a result of playing with them in their ignorance. It isn't just the rich and famous, you know. It's also the young and stupid!

Meanwhile, a brilliant and beautiful young man is gone from us at a time when we need all the brilliant and beautiful we can find.

Rest in peace dear lad. I'm sure I'll be seeing you one of these days.

There is only one word for his efforts: "splat!" Apparently his efforts were required in order to pay back Mayor Daley 2.0 for Daley's support during the election campaign. Of course the public beating death of a 16-year old male bystander didn't help our President's cause occurring as it did within the same week as the presentation to the IOC! Then again, the IOC awarded the Olympics to Rio - an equally lawless city! Harumph!


Was his apparent need to try to make a joke out of the whole thing. They weren't good jokes and it wasn't a laughing matter. What is it with these liberals? They're the ones who have pushed the entire sexual harassment at work meme and yet they seem to be the ones who are getting caught doing it! Bill Clinton and now David Letterman. If these two goofs had to go after a woman on the open market, neither of them would "score". That's my opinion and I'm holding to it firmly.

Furthermore, Mr. Letterman's continuing and demeaning comments about Gov. Sarah Palin seen in light of his admitted infidelities and sexual harassment of employees is more than a little despicable! Shut your pie hole Letterman.
