    Ed Schultz just said: President Barack Obama, he waves the flag, too. Come on, Nashville! Give me a song! If you won’t do it, we’d like to hear from our viewers. If you have a patriotic song or even a rendition of another song already in the can and ready to go, you can go to our blog at Ed.MSNBC.com and leave a link to it. We’ll check them out and maybe even play it on the air, because I think President Obama and the SEALS deserve a song from those fun loving American rednecks in Nashville, Tennessee who love...
  • Remember Libya? We’re still there and fighting under the, “Pelosi Foreign Policy”

    Along the line of, “some things never change”, we have now entered a realm similar in to the passage of the Health Care Bill. Recall at that time, Madam Pelosi posited that because the bill was so large and unwieldy, and there was so little time to read it, it would be necessary to, “pass the bill, so we would know what was in it.” Now, at a time when the UN is full of itself in the absence of an American-interest protecting President of the United States, at a time when the world is waiting expectantly to see which...

    What might the phrase “natural-born citizen” of the United States imply under the U.S. Constitution? The phrase has always been obscure due to the lack of any single authoritative source to confer in order to understand the condition of citizenship the phrase recognizes. Learning what the phrase might have meant following the Declaration of Independence, and the adoption of the Fourteenth Amendment, requires detective work. As with all detective work, eliminating the usual suspects from the beginning goes a long way in quickly solving a case. What Natural-Born Citizen Could Not Mean Could a natural-born citizen simply mean citizenship due...

    Oh, my BFF Fabia Sheen, who is an Attorney, told me about these legal things called Requests for Admissions, where one side in a lawsuit gets to ask the other side to Admit or Deny something so that the process can move along faster. Sooo, since I write poetry and she writes all this legal stuff, we wrote the following like it was from the Obotski, who are just convinced that the ONLY reason people don't like Obama is because he is Black and we are just a bunch of racists. OH, do we ever get them back!!! Tee Hee!...

    My View of the World ^ | 04/07/2011 | James Willis
    As the deadline rapidly approaches for a deal to keep the government running, President Obama and the Democrat leadership in Congress have made it clear that the political game is more important that providing the country with responsible leadership. Sen. Harry Reid has drawn a line in the sand, setting the spending cut bar at the Cowboy Poet level. Former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has expressed her concern that cutting the federal budget will cause old people to starve, and President Obama has made it clear to all that he will not let efforts to pay the salaries of our...

    Colleges and universities pride themselves on producing erudite citizens. Nevertheless, by nearly available benchmark, they are failing in this regard, although they don’t seem to realize it. “While M. B. A. students’ quantitative skills are prized by employers, their writing and presentation skills have been a perennial complaint,” Diana Middleton wrote in The Wall Street Journal on March 3, 2011. “Employers and writing coaches say business-school graduates tend to ramble, use pretentious vocabulary or pen too-casual emails.” “Meanwhile, the Graduate Management Admission Council, which administers the Graduate Management Admission Test, says average essay scores on the GMAT fell to 4.4...

    Today is the 107th anniversary of the birth of Ted Geisel, the American-born writer best known for writing children’s books under the pen name, “Dr. Seuss.” A fan of his classic books, including Green Eggs and Ham, The Cat in the Hat, One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish, Horton Hatches the Egg, Horton Hears a Who! and How the Grinch Stole Christmas, I decided to pay tribute to Geisel by imitating his style Geisel by imitating his style with a decidedly-political twist.

    On Feb 10, while addressing a question about the Muslim Brotherhood from the House Intelligence Committee, James Clapper Director of National Intelligence responded, “The term ‘Muslim Brotherhood’ …is an umbrella term for a variety of movements, in the case of Egypt, a very heterogeneous group, largely secular, which has eschewed violence and has decried Al Qaeda as a perversion of Islam. In the case of Egypt, [it is] a very heterogeneous group, largely secular, which has eschewed violence and has decried Al Qaeda as a perversion of Islam…” This isn’t the first Gen Clapper’s public faux pas.

    Half the harm that is done in this world is due to people who want to feel important. They don’t mean to do harm- but the harm does not interest them. Or they do not see it, or they justify it because they are absorbed in the endless struggle to think well of themselves.

    A disheartening report from the American Society for the Defense of Tradition, Family and Property better know as TFP reveals that 101 (41%) of putative Catholic Colleges carry pro-homosexual organizations among their sponsored student activities. Worse still was the news that every single Jesuit university and college was on the pro homosexual school list. These student “clubs” sponsor events presenting and promoting homosexual conduct and culture as well as the redefining of marriage in direct contradiction to the teachings of the Catholic Church. Georgetown University, America’s first Catholic college, promotes such anti Catholic activities as “weeks” for National Coming Out,...

    Yesterday morning was Thanksgiving, and the first snow of the season. Across the street from our house is the historic Old Union Church building, Audubon Road at Pawlings, Audubon, PA, built in 1820. The old square building is crowned with a high pitched roof pinnacled in the center with a steeple. As the flakes began to fall, a man arrived who was readying the old sanctuary for its annual sacred use. I had never seen it used before living in this home less than a year. The flakes started coming down harder while more and more peoplearrived, resembling some natural...

    "President Obama once again is showing his true colors as an anti-gun ideologue with his appointment of a career anti-gun bureaucrat as Director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (BATFE)," gun rights expert John Snyder said here today. "This shot against America's 100 million law-abiding firearm owners could be critical in Obama's 2012 reelection campaign," Snyder added. "It certainly is bound to solidify opposition to his presidency." A former National Rifle Association editor, Snyder is Public Affairs Director of the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms, and serves on the board of the...

    The outlook wasn’t brilliant for the Liberal gang today: The House looked sure to lose it, and the Senate was in play. And when Blanche Lincoln lost her race, and Grayson did the same, A sickly silence fell upon the Left side of the game. A straggling few showed up and cast their votes in deep despair. The rest would cling to hope and change around the precincts there; They thought, “If we could only just explain to all the dopes The wonders of the Nanny State, we might not be on the ropes.” [snip] ...Oh, somewhere in this favored...
