The Obama Nag, Body Armor Disparities & Dobsonian Maoists: Headline Potpourri #15

-By Frederick Meekins

MSNBC denounced the Tea Party as overwhelmingly White. Will the network denounce illegal aliens as overwhelmingly Hispanic?

Cops should have probably shot the owner along with or rather instead of the dog at a DC street festival. As with people that drag newborns out into extreme cold or heat, often those that have to drag their dogs to mass gatherings unless they are seeing-eye type dogs merely want attention for themselves and don’t really care about their animals.

First Nag Michelle Obama believes restaurants should serve more apples and less butter. And that is from someone that’s probably barely cooked a meal in her entire adult life. Her mother lives with here and she has had a chef on her staff back when she was a nobody just like the rest of us. Frankly, if one goes out to eat, one is going out for the slop. One can eat healthy at home.

The government is deploying X-ray vans to gather intelligence of motorists. The stated purpose is to find contraband such as weapons, narcotics, and human smuggling. But given the Obamas’ propensity to control every aspect of your existence, what is to prevent them from determining what kinds of foods you are purchasing at the supermarket?

Bob Schieffer condemned John Boehner for smoking. Did the CBS correspondent ever go after with similar vehemence Ted Kennedy’s boozing, whoremongering, and generalized subservience to Moscow? Is Bob Schieffer going to point out the medical drawbacks to Barney Frank of the alternative lifestyle wallowed in by the lisp-speaking Massachussetts Congressman?

Time magazine’s 2010 annual national service issue insists to “Teach Is To Serve”. So if government teachers can get paid upwards around $45,000 to $50,000 and still be considered to be engaged in public service, why should the rest of us be continually hounded about “giving back to the COMMUNITY” for free when the occupations we are engaged in are as every much a social and economic necessity as the teaching profession?

According to the 9/14/10 edition of USA Today, Colorado provides a free school breakfast for all students. From the text and photo, it seems this meal consists primarily of a carton of milk and a prepackaged serving of cereal. If parents can’t afford this at home, THEY OUGHT TO KEEP THEIR PANTS ON AND REFRAIN FROM PROCREATNG!!!

Because the preponderance of students achieved standardized assessment benchmarks, the principal of Bladensburg Elementary dressed as a giant wiener and allowed students to squirt condiments such as catsup, mustard, and relish all over her. Perhaps the taxpayer-subsidized school lunch program needs to be curtailed since no one enrolled there is near starvation if food can be spared for such deliberate waste.

Those that go around burning books or flags at mass rallies have too much time on their hands. A sizeable percentage of these probably live on some kind of welfare — be it government (Food Stamps or foreign aide) or ecclesiastical (handouts collected by threatening congregations how they will incur God’s wrath if they don’t pony up into the collection plate).

Maybe if thousands of Afghans were as enthusiastic about going to work and actually taking care of their families as they are about rampaging in the streets, that nation wouldn’t be one of planet earth’s toilet bowls.

Are these hayseed clergymen so bereft of rhetorical and homiletical aptitude that they must resort to pyrotechnics in order to exort as to the dangers of false teaching?

Before threatening to resort to pyrotechnics, did these pastors actually take the time to teach their respective congregations as to the dangers posed by Islam or its methods of ensnaring minds and cultures?

A Tennessee pastor stepping forward to burn a Koran needs to be asked exactly how does burning one make you a better Christian as he insists.

In his Sept 11th remarks, Obama insisted Americans need to “give back to their COMMUNITIES”. You’ll be doing plenty of that in more ways than you realize come January when tax rates are expected to rise.

For supposedly being among the toughest people to walk the earth, the NFL certainly gets its collective athletic supporter in a jumble in regards to every politically correct cause that comes down the pike.

Wonder if cashiers at Aldi’s more foo-foo line of Trader Joe’s stores also toss the food in the cart as if the customer is a piece of gutter trash.

An immigrant woman in line proceeded to pay for eggs and such with WIC credits. She then paid for chips and such out of her own pocket. If she has enough for the extra snacks, she essentially doesn’t need the government “entitlements” to provide necessities.

So if Focus on The Family has altered its abstinence curriculum to curry the favor of Chinese Communist overlords, does that mean there will be an episode of the audio drama “Adventures in Odyssey” assuring the kiddies its OK to compromise your values and to deny the Lord when it suits your pragmatic agenda?

Salvatore Giunta is the first living recipient of the Medal of Honor since the Vietnam War. Wonder how many other soldiers named John Smith have acted as valiantly but whose names were not alluringly exotic enough to merit such public accolades.

A kook suspected of threatening the President is being charged in part with illegally possessing body armor. So basically, the police are allowed to protect themselves from homicidal miscreants but we as citizens are not allowed to protect ourselves from homicidal miscreants which easily include errant police. Since no one is harmed if an individual owns a bullet proof vest since the vest alone cannot be used as an implement of violence, a free citizen would be allowed to own a bullet proof vest.

In coverage of a lunatic possessing body armor believed to be a threat to the President, it was remarked one should not be allowed to threaten the President. And that is absolutely correct. But shouldn’t it be as much a crime to threaten all of America as a whole? As such, the Ground Zero Imam should be taken into custody as well.

Interesting how the leftist media will ridicule someone for having repented of witchcraft as if it doesn’t exist but will herald it as an alternative, enlightened form of spirituality when it is advocated in mainstream cultural dialogue. You don’t hear them snickering at J.K. Rowling. If Obama used dope as a youth, technically in terms of Biblical definition, wouldn’t that make him a greater sorcerer than Christine O’Donnell likely ever was?

Obama removes mention of Creator from recitation of Declaration of Independence. Makes you wonder what else liberals expunge from the historical record.
