This is the first time since Liam was a week old that my brother, Jason, has got to hold his baby since he went into the ICU. (He just graduated to rehab)

Ugh. Work has been crazy this week, and I've been dealing with not only my insurance company, but another and the supposed owner of the truck that hit me NONSTOP.

It doesn't look good; these people have clearly been giving us a royal run-around. Dave had to call this guy back yesterday and be a bit heavy with him.

So, I haven't had much time for posting or making rounds on everyone's sites. I will soon! I hope!

Here is a bit of a potpourri of stories that caught my interest:

First, a woman is suing McDonald's for not having a proper grievance policy after a franchise manager fired her in the 80's and somehow forced her to become a legal prostitute. No, really. You can't make this stuff up.

Next, we have a couple of examples of religious discrimination here in America... And you won't be surprised that it isn't against Muslims!

A condo association is forcing a woman into taking down her mezuzah, and a man was arrested for daring to real aloud from a Bible in public.

The next story hacks me off; I own a Pitt Bull and she wouldn't hurt a fly; United Airlines has banned the transport of any bully breeds. You know, cause they're so vicious. Bah!

Also, the latest Dis Raps For Hire. A bit blue, but funny!

Finally, I leave you with another great Ramirez cartoon:

NOT Just Another Isolated Incident in France

Put down your drinks and have a seat, because I have a real shocker for you:

The French motorbike gunman who has murdered seven people, including soldiers, Jewish children and a Rabbi....


I know, right? You didn't see it coming that the murderer would be named MOHAMMED Merah, be an immigrant from a Muslim country and also claim to be a member of al-Qaeda! And also wanted to 'take revenge' for the psuedo-stinians! Who could've guessed it?

As of right now, French police have the filthy camel-humper surrounded in an apartment in Toulouse, and are deciding whether to raid or just wait him out.

I say send him to Allah's sky-brothel.

Miserable Weekend.

Between my work schedule and the mutha of all weekends, I haven't posted or made rounds for a little while. Perhaps tomorrow after Connor's doctor appt.

This Saturday, I was t-boned by a hit and run driver in a pickup truck and her 'guy'; the former was driving under suspension and without insurance. The latter had warrants and ran on foot. Fortunately, the police caught them both. They'd ran the red light.

After lying repeatedly to the police and me, they hauled her off. I later found out that the pickup didn't belong to them. We have no idea yet if the owner has insurance.

I am OK, just sore.

Here's the damage:

You can't see it well from here, but my wheel is caved in at about a 45 degree angle. The door was wedged shut, so I had to crawl out the passenger side. Thankfully, the window was down so I didn't get shards of flying glass. Since I bounced off a curb, the opposite wheel is also askew, though not as badly.

Curiously, the airbag did not deploy.

Extreme close up: That is a shard from their truck stuck in my door.

Thankfully, even though we'd paid the car off and I wanted liability, Dave insisted on keeping full coverage. We just got a rental car, and are waiting for the insurance company to make the call; the car could be fixed, but it would cost more than 60% or so of it's value to do so, so it may be totaled out.

Then, to make matters worse, on top of being sore on Sunday I ran a fever and couldn't keep any thing down!

Dave took care of me all weekend and took Monday off to deal with all the insurance calls, and it was a full-time job! I love my husband! :)

Things are starting to look up now, though.

Ben Stein is my hero:

“Fathom the odd hypocrisy that the government wants every citizen to prove they are insured, but people don’t have to prove they are citizens”.

Gift-Wrapped Election

I made this comment at Z's site regarding energy:

The nominee should point at the pump prices, and say something along the lines of, "Clearly the Democrats in the Senate are in Obama's pocket... But with gas prices soaring, the economy failing and prices at the grocery shelf also soaring as a result we have to ask, WHOSE POCKET IS OBAMA IN?!? Clearly, it isn't that of the American people!"

Well, Obama has ordered the Dems in the Senate to uphold his slaughter of the Keystone pipeline. Only a few Dems with some sort of cognitive ability broke ranks. 

This, with Obama's history, is an absolute gift to the GOP come election time. The nominee need only point to the gas pump, the grocery shelf, the unemployment rate, ect., and then quote Barry Barack Hussein Soetoro Obama himself: 

Thursday, March 8, 2012


Remember when anyone on the right would dare to ask if Obama is a Muslim and the left would freak out and get all indignant?

Well, read this article from Forbes contributor Asma Gull Hasan, and try not to freak out yourself:

I know President Obama is not Muslim, but I am tempted nevertheless to think that he is, as are most Muslims I know. In a very unscientific oral poll, ranging from family members to Muslim acquaintances, many of us feel, just as African-Americans did for the non-black but culturally leaning African-American President Bill Clinton, that we have our first American Muslim president in Barack Hussein Obama.
I know it's odd to say this. At first, I thought I was the only Muslim engaging in this folly, and I am reluctant to express it lest right-wing zealots try to use "Muslim" as a smear and cite my theory as proof of an Islamic traitor in the White House or some such nonsense. But, since Election Day, I have been part of more and more conversations with Muslims in which it was either offhandedly agreed that Obama is Muslim or enthusiastically blurted out. In commenting on our new president, "I have to support my fellow Muslim brother," would slip out of my mouth before I had a chance to think twice.

"Well, I know he's not really Muslim," I would quickly add. But if the person I was talking to was Muslim, they would say, "yes he is." They would cite his open nature and habit of reaching out to critics, reminiscent of the Prophet Muhammad's own approach, and also Obama's middle name, Hussein. Most of the Muslims I know (me included) can't seem to accept that Obama is notMuslim.
Of the few Muslims I polled who said that Obama is not Muslim, even they conceded that he had ties to Islam. These realists said that, although not an avowed and practicing Muslim, Obama's exposure to Islam at a young age (both through his father and his stint in Indonesia) has given him a Muslim sensibility. In my book, that makes you a Muslim--maybe not a card-carrying one, but part of the flock for sure. One realist Muslim ventured that Obama worships at a Unitarian Church because it represents the middle ground between Christianity and Islam, incorporating the religious beliefs of the two faiths Obama feels connected to. Unitarianism could be Obama's way of still being a Muslim. (And let's not forget that the church Obama worshiped at for so many years had a minister who reminds most Muslims of their own raving, excitable ministers. Even if Obama really is Christian, he picked the most Muslim-esque minister out of the bunch to guide him.)
The rationalistic, Western side of me knows that Obama has denied being Muslim, that his father was non-practicing, that he doesn't attend a mosque. Many Muslims simply say back, "my father's not a strict Muslim either, and I haven't been to a mosque in years." Obama even told The New York Times he could recite the adhan, the Islamic call to prayer, which the vast majority of Muslims, I would guess, do not know well enough to recite.
I think many of us Muslims see Obama as Muslim, or at least of Muslim heritage, because his background epitomizes one of the major Muslim experiences--a diverse upbringing that eludes any easy classification as specifically one religion or one culture. So many of us Muslims around the world have Islam in common, but an altogether different culture from one another. Many Muslims share a culture with a Christian, Hindu or Buddhist community but not the same religion. When faced with such diversity, there are no hard and fast rules for Muslim identity.
The Qur'an speaks often of the umma, or the worldwide community of Muslims. In the early days of Islam, the Prophet Muhammad led the small umma. Every decision, every effort, everything was for the umma--people who were often unrelated by blood but had become related by choice as Muslims. In those early days, many Muslims had gone against the wishes of their own families in converting to Islam, pitting brother against sister, father against child. Perhaps that's why the concept of umma became so dear and is still echoed today--in my opinion, echoed more than that Western favorite jihad--in Muslim homes, whether those homes are in the United States or in Palestine.
Perhaps it is my--and most Muslims'-- loyalty to the umma that is behind our insistence on seeing Obama as Muslim. Islam survived and continues to survive because Muslims believe we have to respect and take care of each other, as members of the umma. If we were to start excluding members, or revising our broad guidelines for admittance, the very essence of the community feeling that is important in Islam, that gives me and other Muslims comfort everyday, would be undercut. So when Obama says he's not Muslim, my umma mentality says I know better. Once you have a Muslim parent, especially a dad, you're in. Whether you like it or not, Muslims all over the world see you as one of them.
I work with my father, and, once, we were seeking business with a white American man who had married a Muslim woman. Noticing how much fond attention my dad paid to this man, I asked him why he liked the man so much. My dad responded that, in his marriage to a Muslim woman (who wasn't related to us), "He's our brother-in-law!" So if that white, middle-aged man can be my brother-in-law, then Obama can certainly be my Muslim president.
So paraphrasing, if you're a Muslim it is OK to say that you think Obama is a Muslim... And if you're not a Muslim, and if you say you think he is, you're a 'racist.'

Unbelievable. The whole article is a pant load.

Prayers Needed!

I just heard this morning about my brother:

Info on Jason... He is in a local hospitals' ICU with pancreatitis, kidney failure, enlarged spleen and liver, and diabetic ketoacidosis. They have him sedated, intubated, and on IV insulin. They have called in specialists from Dayton. The next 12 hours are critical.

Jason and I are half-siblings; we have the same father and he is only six years older than I am. He's 38. He and his wife just had a baby about three weeks ago.

Just Sayin'

I may have disagreed with a whole lot of GWB's policies, but I did find this funny.

Tuesday, March 6, 2012


It's Super Tuesday here in Ohio, and for once the GOP candidate may not be already decided! I usually vote Democrat in primaries because of that, but not today!

And yes, I have to sign a fascist party loyalty card whenever I 'switch' parties. Because Americans shouldn't be able to vote for whomever they damn well please. At least I don't vote 14 times with my dead dog and the entire Dallas Cowboys team!

So, in a couple of hours I will drag my miserable, sick hide out to work. On the way home, I will drag my miserable, sick hide to the polling station and cast my vote.

Out of curiosity, the local consensus is that it's pretty much between Romney and Santorum. Out of the two, who would you pick?

I mean, you could for Newt or Paul, but at that point you might as well just stay home and have a pan of Jiffy Pop. If you're a Paul supporter, you'd have the added bonus of the foil-dome when you're finished!

I leave you all with another video from Wild Bill on how leftists vote:

Angry White Imam Preaches It

A must-read satire courtesy of AWD:  

Shama lama and great big ding dongs from Allah, infidels! The Imam brings great news of the triumph of Islam over the Great Satan! Yes, infidel dogs, the Great Satan has been humiliated in the eyes of the world! The so-called greatest nation in the world has been brought to its knees by a simple holy man of Islam. An Imam who was born in humble circumstances and grew to be the most powerful man in the world. Yes, I’m talking about Imam Barack Hussein Obama!
Imam Obama has humiliated your Great Satan in front of the Muslim world before! His hatred of America is equal to that of the Muslim world! Imam Obama destroyed the great pride of America once again by apologizing for the burning of Korans by the infidel American military in Afghanistan. Predictably, our crowds of Muslims filled with pretend rage protested in the streets. Predictably, your politically correct, infidel press began non-stop coverage. Predictably, Imam Obama and his lap-dog Generals began getting down on their knees begging forgiveness. And predictably, your weak leaders say nothing when Muslims slaughter American soldiers with weapons that you have provided. So predictable America is these days, infidels!
What a fools game we play with the fools in America! Do any of you PC infidels really believe Muslims are THAT upset about the burning of a Koran? The Imam has to laugh at your PC stupidity! Why, then, do Muslims not show equal rage when other Muslims burn Korans? Or explode mosques? Or kill Imams or other Muslims? Because Muslims are not infected with the deadly poison known as political correctness. The only Gods we follow are Allah and power. One is the means, the other one is the end.
Islam now owns America. An American president apologizing to a nation of uneducated fools was all it took! We have used your pathetic sickness of political correctness against you and we have won. Muslims are now above reproach in America. Muslims are free to do any savage act. We can kill Christians, burn Bibles, kill your soldiers, kill your citizens, kill anyone we want anywhere we want without criticism. Why? Because we will not allow criticism! A Muslim Army Major can assassinate American soldiers at an Army base at Fort Hood, Texas and your weak military Chief of Staff for your president concerns himself with the future of his diversity program!
Any acknowledgement of the truth by infidels concerning Islam will be immediately branded as Islamaphobic or hatred by any number of our bought and paid for politicians or media networks. How ironic the strongest country in the world militarily is also the weakest? America is a man with a loaded gun fighting another with a stone but won’t pull the trigger! And the man with the stone kills the man with the gun. What was the difference between the two men? Will!
And what is the most delightful to watch are the leaders in America who have brought your downfall. Because they are the ones who despise America as much as Muslims! Imam Obama and his political party are your enemies yet control your country. The weak, pathetic Republicans are lapdogs scared of their shadows. Muslims are determined men while your leaders don’t have the courage of school girls we slaughter weekly! Only Allah’s will would have brought America to this sad, pitiful state. Allah’s will, the deceit of devious America leaders and complacency of American infidels!
Good bye, Great Satan. When a country refuses to acknowledge the truth, it is doomed. All your dignity are belong to us now! And we will kill you because of that!

Andrew Breitbart.

I'm sure by now everyone has heard the sad news of Breitbart's passing; too young and without warning.

God be with his family in their time of sorrow.

I want to link to this story, which I believe encompasses Breitbart's razor wit:

It’s stressful to be hated. It goes against our instincts. We want to be loved. But Andrew Breitbart was different. He relished his enemies and laughed when they threatened him. He wasn’t scared of conflict. He thought it was fun. He was, as Greg Gutfeld put it, “The bravest person I ever met.”
When I was on Greg’s show Red Eye with Breitbart we were asked what we thought of Trump sponsoring a GOP debate. Greg and I had the knee-jerk reaction of scoffing at the whole thing. When Breitbart asked us what was so funny we said, “Well, it’s obviously just some rich guy showboating.” Then he taught me a word I never really paid attention to before: “So?”
This word defines Breitbart to me more than any other. At a bar one night I was whining about the allegation that all libertarians are funded by the Koch brothers. “So?” he replied. Andrew didn’t play the PC left’s game. Libertarians don’t get magical checks from the Koch brothers, but so what if they did? George Soros spends billions paying people he likes. There’s nothing wrong with that, either.
Another evening we were both arguing with someone who still believed government can create jobs. She was from Madison and like all liberals there, she saw Governor Scott Walker as a union-busting thug who hated the working man. I explained that Walker’s privatization created way more jobs than the government did and she said, “Yeah, but they were all just tourism jobs.” Breitbart ended the whole argument with, “So?”
