My daughter, 23, brought home a friend of hers today. The girl seemed nice enough. She’s 25 and believes in blunt honesty. No problemo… She works at a call center during the day and has her own food delivery business at night. I do love young entrepreneurs.
But that was where the good times ended. Somehow the discussion turned to the disaster in Japan. I commented on how I really felt for them; that the poor Japanese were going to be devastated for some time.
My daughter’s friend then stated that she tended to agree with her mother’s opinion. And it is a whopper… Her mother feels that what happened to Japan is Mother Earth’s way of getting even with them for whaling. Imagine the look on my face. Imagine the thoughts that flitted across my mind. I told the girl that I did not agree with that assessment. But before I could shine sanity into the darkness that Mother Gaia had bestowed on this person and her mother, she had to leave with my daughter.
After she left, it occurred to me if that sentiment is that widespread, we are truly doomed. Then I remembered that her mother lives in Southern California with a preponderance of other flakes and nuts. My apologies to those who are actually sane that live there.
Mother Earth is no more responsible for Japan’s disasters than the moon is made of green cheese. I am truly and thoroughly sick of this green Marxofasicsm. My prayers are with Japan. I think Mother Earth can take care of herself.
It’s really tough being Obama these days. For instance, today he had to make the monumental decision of whether or not to release OBL’s death photo. Tough decision. It ranks right up there with “should I play just nine holes or 18?”
As for the death photo, Obama decided against its release. Later he’ll decide to play the entire 18 holes, I’m sure.
The reasoning for not releasing the photo seems to be that it will be used to shape a negative opinion of the United States, thus making this a national security issue.
One picture has the power to bring the United States of America to its knees? Of course not, because Obama is dead wrong. Let me give you an example of a real difficult decision.
On the morning of Sept 11, 2001, you kiss your spouse and kids good-bye as you prepare to rush off to work. You work atop the World Trade Center. Not long after arriving to your office, you put your things away, settle in and prepare for another day of work. As you check your calendar, you make note of the decisions you’ll be making as your day progresses. Some important ones, some rather routine ones. Just another day at the office.
Barely into your work day, you and your co-workers find yourselves faced with one little decision that wasn’t listed on your day’s calendar: Do I burn to death, or do I jump to my death?
In a split second, you are faced with what will be your last decision ever: how shall I die, burn or jump? Many decided to jump–over one thousand feet, reaching terminal velocity just prior to impacting the sidewalk below.
Videos and photos of this horror sped around the globe. OBL enjoyed the sight, relishing in its awesomeness. And Obama is worried that the world might think ill of us if we release OBL’s death photo. Rod Serling would have trouble writing this script.
Now, let me tell you about some photos and videos that will be released to the world, and probably already have been. OBL’s funeral and burial at sea–in proper accordance with his so-called religion. Yes, these photos and videos will be shipped to all points on the globe, and in short order. That way a positive opinion of the United States of America will be solidly formed and all Americans will be hailed as great and wonderful people. Loved the world over. Yes, good times are just around the corner. The muzzies finally do love us!
We need to stop worrying about what the world thinks; it’s time the world started worrying about what we think. (Someone famous might have said that, I’m not sure.)
One question, then I’m outta here:
I already know what Bill Posey’s thinking, but what’s Rick Rescorla thinking now?
As I reported in my Surfin Safari column at World Net Daily this week, Facebook investors have been all of a sudden offloading huge shares of Facebook on secondary markets. Why now? Why in such huge quantities? Why secondary markets? To keep a low profile??? From my column:
This should raise many questions, for not only investors, but for all you Facebook users as well. Recall that Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg has become very cozy with Obama in the past few months, sitting beside him at the Big tekkie dinner held in California, and hosting the first ever streamed Facebook town hall meeting with Obama.
The founder of WikiLeaks Julian Assange said that Facebook is the most ‘appaling spying machine ever invented’.
Are you concerned about Facebook sharing your information with the government?
Maybe he’s a MySpace guy.
WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange called Facebook “the most appalling spying machine ever invented” in an interview with Russia Today, pointing to the popular social networking site as one of the top tools for the U.S. to spy on its citizens.
“Here we have the world’s most comprehensive database about people, their relationships, their names, their addresses, their locations, their communications with each other and their relatives, all sitting within the United States, all accessible to US Intelligence,” he said. “Facebook, Google, Yahoo, all these major U.S. organizations have built-in infaces for US intelligence.
“Everyone should understand that when they add their friends to Facebook they are doing free work for the United States intelligence agencies,” he added.
The comments were a bit strange, coming from the founder of a website best known for pushing spilling secret information.
In an email to the Daily News, a Facebook spokesman denied the company was doing anything that they weren’t legally obligated to do, saying that “the legal standards for compelling a company to turn over data are determined by the laws of the country, and we respect that standard.”
“We don’t respond to pressure, we respond to compulsory legal process,” the spokesperson wrote. “There has never been a time we have been pressured to turn over data — we fight every time we believe the legal process is insufficient.”
In any event, many Facebook users have been increasingly concerned about the sharing of their information.
In 2010, three Democratic senators asked the FTC to look at the social networking site’s information-sharing policies.
The Wall Street Journal has reported that popular Facebook apps like Farmville and Causes also shared users’ information with advertising and tracking companies.
Concerns about information-sharing has seemingly done little to dissuade the more than 250 million people who use Facebook – including someone who created an official WikiLeaks page on the site.
More than 1.72 million people clicked that they like it.
Assange is currently in England, awaiting extradition to Sweden to face sexual assault charges.
Last night we learned that four “Draft Allen West for President” FaceBook pages had been removed without warning or explanation.

Here’s the deal. There were three or four Facebook fan pages dedicated to “Drafting Allen West for President”. Facebook took all of those sites down yesterday. Facebook is an arm of the Obama regime. Facebook is Obama’s Ministry of Public Enlightenment & Propaganda. Facebook is running interference for Obama. Straight up. Do you understand why I won’t have anything to do with that Commie outfit?
Why are they doing this? Because they KNOW that LTC. Rep. West would beat Obama like a rented red-headed mule in a head-to-head.
Conversely, Facebook will fall all over itself to facilitate Romney, Pawlenty or any of the other no-name pathetic RINO unelectables out there. Wise up, people. This is a CLEAR TELL on the part of the Obama regime. They QUAKE and TREMBLE at the thought of a West candidacy.
I recommend that everyone who is interested in the “Draft Allen West” movement go to this site, which was just started up yesterday after Facebook got their Geheime Staatspolizei on:
…for our WWII Vets. Today, we are beginning to find out who the REAL patriots are. The masks are coming off.
As for these WWII Vets, patriotism flows freely through their veins… always has, always will. We could never repay these warriors for what they’ve given each of us, our children, our children’s children. But we will try our best to make those payments, now and forever.
Obama’s preening and arrogant strutting over this is disgusting. Tomorrow he goes to hallowed ground in NYC to capitalize on 3,000 deaths and take all the credit and glory for taking down Osama bin Laden. I give the credit to special forces (Navy SEALS and Army Rangers rock!) and the CIA on this one. Obama just loves to bask in the light of what he perceives as adoration. More like his own light of self-love and trust me this isn’t just a spring fling between O and himself. He went all the way long ago… These useful idiots fawning over their dear leader are just fuel for the Marxist machine. I guess they feel it is better to rule in Marxist Hell rather than serve in a free America. But justice is a funny thing and comes knocking on the doors of the elites in the dark night of their souls when they will least expect it I would wager.
