  • Bob Dylan is 70 today (Did you know?)

    The Cinch Review ^ | May 24, 2011 | Sean Curnyn
    Happy birthday to Bob Dylan, born May 24th, 1941. I’m not big on birthdays, to be honest. What difference does it really make that on one day you are technically one age, and the next day you’re technically another age? You’re as young as you feel, and the older I get, the more it pleases me to think so. There’s predictably been enormous hoopla over Bob Dylan turning 70, and at least 30 new books have been added to the groaning shelves of tomes analyzing, documenting and distorting his music and/or life. I should talk — I’ve written untold thousands...

    Bear Memories The youngest baby was about three, a carbon copy of him in me, When Dad took us all to Yosemite. Not expecting it to become a calamity. The chubby baby smelled of food. He wouldn't share, which the bears thought rude, so when Donnie bopped the bear's brown nose. The bear's unpredictable anger rose. Donnie took off in high gear, wailing. The bear growled, his patience failing. The bear chased the babe. The baby ran. Dad heard him yell near the garbage can. The bear looked around and saw Dad coming But followed the child who kept on...
  • Dissecting Obama’s March 2008 speech would have proved he is an anti white male bigot

    coachisright.com ^ | May 15, 2011 | Suzanne Eovaldi, staff writer
    Barack Obama’s speech on race, given to expiate the offensive race baiting rhetoric of his pastor of 20 years, Rev. Jeremiah Wright, was the angry rhetoric of a politician or his propagandist who told us just what he would do if and when elected, and he is doing just what he said. The syntax, choice of words, and use of grammatical devices suggest to me that a white man wrote Obama’s March 18, 2008 speech that now is his. White House play book. Having taught very diverse students for 30 years, I never heard an American of African Descent using...
  • A Conservative Rap Song

    Canada Free Press ^ | May 13, 2011 | Doug Gamble
    If any administration was going to invite to the White House a rapper whose lyrics have supported a cop killer and advocated the killing of President George W. Bush, it would be this one, as demonstrated by its hosting this week of rapper Common. But why should rap “music” be the preserve of thugs who preach violence. How about a conservative rap song, like this: He’s a socialist prez and his name is Barack; he has American freedom under attack. He was elected on speeches that mesmerized, but his lips are betrayed by his lying eyes. He came with a...
  • Obama Lackey Compares Radical Cop-Killer Promoting Poet ‘Common’ to the ‘Pedophile Enabling’ Pope

    05/10/2011 9:53:37 PM PDT · by massmike · 6 replies
    This is a perfect example of what the left thinks of the Catholic Church. In their eyes the church is an evil entity that abuses and molests children. And, now they’re smearing the pope as the molester in chief. Obama lackey, Huffington Post contributor and author Keli Goff compared cop-killer promoting poet Common, a member of Barack Obama’s former radical church, to the "child molester enabling" Pope Benedict. What an outrageous statement.

    First Lady Michelle Obama has invited a rapper who called for the burning of George Bush to perform at the White House. Lonnie Rashid Lynn Jr, who uses the stage name ‘Common’, will be welcomed at an event celebrating American poetry on Wednesday. He is expected to take part in rap workshops with schoolchildren in the afternoon before performing in the evening. In footage on YouTube he is seen calling for the burning of the former president. ‘Burn a Bush cos for peace he no push no button,’ the hip-hop artist raps in one video, which has more than 800,000...

    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...

    Federalist Blog ^ | November 18, 2008 | P.A. Madison
    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...

Sen. Harry Reid has drawn a line in the sand, setting the spending cut bar at the Cowboy Poet level.

    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...

    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,...

  • My trip to a liberal institution (vanity)

    07/14/2010 6:30:12 AM PDT · by Old Teufel Hunden · 4 replies
    As a young teenager, like most people I'm sure I had a little bit of a liberal streak. Sure, I loved John Wayne and America but I also believed in helping all the people in America and feeding the poor. Through my 10th grade English teacher I fell in love with the poetry of Lawrence Ferlinghetti and from there moved to Jack Kerouak, Neal Cassidy, "On the Road" and the beatnick movement. So of course one of my dreams was to eventually go "On the Road" and visit the City Lights Bookstore owned by Ferlinghetti. Well, he's the last living...

    I thank you, Lord, not for the pain But that Your love redeems. I know that I must walk though this As heavy as it seems. But when I think I can't go on, The pain is so intense, It's then You whisper in my soul, "Of this I will make sense." This too You'll use to help someone, In this I'll give You praise. I'll gladly bear the price of pain If this Your hand displays. For in my weakness You are strong, This pain is not in vain, For You waste nothing in my life, Myself and others...

    I must down to the seas again, to the lonely sea and the sky, And all I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by, And the wheel’s kick and the wind’s song and the white sail’s shaking, And a grey mist on the sea’s face, and a grey dawn breaking.

    God bless America, This country built by grace, Restore the faith that made her great That she might seek Your face. Forgive the self-reliance, Rejection of Your Word, And grant us the desire To let Your voice be heard.

Forgive us, Lord, we've wandered far, Restore us by Your grace, For You, Lord, first established us, Redeem this fallen race. Restore to us Your conscience, Desire to follow You, Renew our land that we again Your principles...

    The Zulu shaman, or sanusi, Credo Mutwa, has written a poem to express his thoughts on what he sees as the true nature of Barack Obama and the agenda for Africa and the world that he represents. "An actor walks upon the floodlit stage of life wearing a mask of an angel beneath a demon's gown. Pretence smiles upon the crowded hall of life holding out hope as bright as it is false. Son of a woman in whose veins flows the blood of ancient Ireland and dark Africa's plains. You are Obama, nick-named the standing king You are Barack,...

    The Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW), a government watchdog group, says the White House is committing “willful violations” of federal and presidential records acts, along with violating disclosure laws, and is calling for a congressional oversight hearing into administration officials meetings with lobbyists. The problem arises from White House officials having met with K- Street lobbyists hundreds of times over the past 18 months at “off-campus” coffee shops. Some lobbyists claimed they frequently receive e-mails from White House staff members’ personal accounts, rather than from their official White House accounts. CREW says this is “an apparent attempt...
