Messiah wins Noble Peace Prize. Since the One has done absolutely nothing to merit any price at all, it’s safe to say that he has joined Teddy Roosevelt in the pantheon of Noble heros for something other than accomplishment. What could that be? He is not Bush, obviously. He will listen to Europeans, he will join the United Nations is affirming the right of Gaddafi to sit on the Human Rights Commission, he will wring his hands in helpless woe while regretting human rights abuses and, in short, he’s everything that the emasculated effete love and admire in a “world leader”. congratulations, fella.
By the way, is there any doubt what Obama will do in Afghanistan? Not in my mind. His generals have said we will lose there if we don’t bring in more troops. But Obama can’t do that without alienating his lefty nutbase, so he won’t. And if he pulls out all our troops, the ensuing collapse and chaos will be blamed on him and kill his chances of reelection. So he will do nothing, ensuring defeat and the needless death of more soldiers, while saying that he inherited the status quo from that evil Bush/Cheney.
Which is good enough for our Nobel Prize winner, if not his country.
Yes, The One will speak to our nation’s public school children on September 8th and, while the parodies have started, I was shocked to discover that this list of instructions to the NEA was not part of any parody – it’s straight from Command Headquarters.
• Why is it important that we listen to the President and other elected officials, like the mayor, senators, members of congress, or the governor? Why is what they say important?
During the Speech:
• As the President speaks, teachers can ask students to write down key ideas or phrases that are important or personally meaningful. Students could use a note-taking graphic organizer such as a Cluster Web, or students could record their thoughts on sticky notes. Younger children can draw pictures and write as appropriate.
As students listen to the speech, they could think about the following:
What is the President trying to tell me?
What is the President asking me to do?
What new ideas and actions is the President challenging me to think about?
• Students can record important parts of the speech where the President is asking them to do something.
• Students might think about: What specific job is he asking me to do? Is he asking anything of anyone else? Teachers? Principals? Parents? The American people?
This story, with full evidence to back it up, has been all over the Internet the past week but remains untouched by the NYT and other mains stream media because it might make the One look like Bush or something, you know?
North Korea defies world, fires rocket over Japan toward U.S. Obama is “really, really cheesed!”, vows unilateral disarmament .
Obama has heard our plea and acted. And, in view of the ridicule heaped on our former president who called the people held there “the worst of the worst”, this should be reassuring. “Freed from Guantanamo, accused terrorist renounces violence and spends time crocheting booties for Mother Theresa’s orphans.”
Oops! Wrong story. Here’s what I was looking for: “Freed by U.S., terrorist now is head of Al Qaeda in Yeman.”
BEIRUT, Lebanon — The emergence of a former Guantánamo Bay detainee as the deputy leader of Al Qaeda’s Yemeni branch has underscored the potential complications in carrying out the executive order President Obama signed Thursday that the detention center be shut down within a year.
The militant, Said Ali al-Shihri, is suspected of involvement in a deadly bombing of the United States Embassy in Yemen’s capital, Sana, in September. He was released to Saudi Arabia in 2007 and passed through a Saudi rehabilitation program for former jihadists before resurfacing with Al Qaeda in Yemen.
His status was announced in an Internet statement by the militant group and was confirmed by an American counterterrorism official.
Now that’s change I can believe in.
Damn! This is a first for the NAR – until now, the market was always “stabilizing”, “growing”, and one hell of an investment. As a small government proponent may I point out that only when the federal government started its bailout for everyone scheme did the real estate market crash? Cause and effect, clearly.
