Giuliani Versus Obama

What's sad is not that people buy it; I buy it. What's sad is that it's probably true. There is no reason to believe Obama has ever been a consistent church attender. I have no doubt that his membership in Jeremiah Wright's church means only that he figured that since most Americans have some kind of religious affiliation he should too. He chose to join a church out of political expediency. He chose badly, of course, but then bad choices are the pattern of his life.

The SPLC Owes Me An Apology Too

There may have been a time when the SPLC provided a valuable service, but that time is long gone. The great irony is that for all their denunciations of "hate" groups (translation: any group they disagree with), the SPLC has become one of the worst hate groups.
He got in trouble because,in addition to telling lies to make the Democrats look good (which they wanted him to do), he told lies to make himself look good. How could he think he would get away with that? Did he actually believe the network executives cared about him? They're liberals, fer cryin' out loud. They care about making the world a better place. They couldn't care less about the people who live in the world, including Brian Williams.

Shut Up, Because the Crusades

This idea that Obama is a closet Moslem keeps coming up. A moment's thought will make it obvious that Obama is not Moslem. Neither is he Christian. Were he either one he would acknowledge that there is a Supreme Authority to whom he owes obedience, whether Allah or Jesus. Obama cannot do that. He knows no greater authority than himself. Not Moslem, not Christian; he is Obamist.

Your grandma probably knew the popular song, "Ain't We Got Fun?" For all I know, it may have been a common saying before Ray Egan and Gus Kahn included in their lyrics, but it was certainly common after that.

It is also important to note that justice and fairness are not the same thing. That there is some overlap in colloquial usage distorts the reality. Justice dictates that our laws be applied the same for everybody, but under those laws, justly applied, those with greater ability and drive will prosper more than others. Life is not fair, any anybody who thinks it is should try volunteering at a hospital or at a home for people with Down Syndrome.
Then you should be more judicious in what you say about things of which you are admittedly ignorant. It does not require a book to refrain from saying what you do not know.
So ... are we to understand that the White House was built during the Revolutionary War and six years before the Constitutional Convention?
What you are failing to see is that it took the murder of a Jordanian pilot to outrage Moslems. Where was their outrage when it was Americans, British and Japanese who were being murdered? Nowhere! For them to express their outrage now does nothing to enhance their humanitarian image.
