You may have heard about this blog already but I’m linking it up anyway. Obama’s teleprompter has quite a lot to say and is also a fairly prolific blogger. Get the inside view of the administration from the one electronic communications device that knows all–the TOTUS.

Prelutsky just wants to help liberals get better from the mental illness that has afflicted them. What astounds me is that he was able to keep it to only 12 steps…ok, he made it a baker’s dozen at 13. Here’s my favorite:
“Step #7: Stop using the word “big” as a pejorative. There is nothing intrinsically bad about big oil, big agriculture or big pharmaceuticals. Overall, they do a very good job of keeping our cars on the road, food on our tables and most of us over 60 alive and functioning. On the other hand, big government, which so many liberals simply adore, represents a usurpation of the allegedly inalienable rights of individuals. A quick perusal of the Constitution should convince you that beyond declaring war, forging treaties, overseeing patents, printing money, running the post office, collecting taxes and protecting our borders — and a few other things that Washington doesn’t do at all well these days — the federal government has very limited responsibilities.”

I received this as a forward yesterday. I realize that e-mail forwards are probably considered low-hanging fruit in the world of blogging but I liked it and this is my blog. Therefore, I will post and you will read.
Dear American liberals, leftists, social progressives, socialists, Marxists, Obama supporters, et al:
We have stuck together since the late 1950’s, but the whole of this latest election process has made me realize that I want a divorce. I know we tolerated each other for many years for the sake of future generations, but sadly, this relationship has run its course. Our two ideological sides of America cannot and will not ever agree on what is right, so let’s just end it on friendly terms. We can smile; slate it up to irreconcilable differences, and go on our own ways.
Here is a model dissolution agreement:
Our two groups can equitably divide up the country by landmass–each taking a portion. That will be the difficult part, but I am sure our two sides can come to a friendly agreement. After that it should be relatively easy!Our respective representatives can effortlessly divide other assets since both sides have such distinct and disparate tastes.
We don’t like redistributive taxes so you can keep them.
You are welcome to liberal judges and the ACLU.
Since you hate guns and war, we’ll take our firearms, the cops, the NRA, and the military.
You can keep Oprah, Michael Moore, and Rosie O’Donnell (you are
however, responsible for finding a bio-diesel vehicle big enough to move them).
We’ll keep the capitalism, greedy corporations, pharmaceutical companies, Wal-Mart, and Wall Street.
You can have your beloved homeless, homeboys, hippies, and illegal aliens.
We’ll keep the hot Alaskan Hockey Moms, greedy CEO’s, and Rednecks.
We’ll keep the Bibles and give you NBC and Hollywood .
You can make nice with Iran , Palestine , and France , and we’ll retain the right to invade and hammer places that threaten us.
You can have the peaceniks and war protestors. When our allies or way of life are under assault, we’ll provide them job security.
We’ll keep our Judeo-Christian Values. You are welcome to Islam, Scientology, Humanism, and Shirley McClain.
You can have the U.N. but we will no longer be paying the bill.
We’ll keep the SUV’s, pickup trucks, and oversized luxury cars.
You can take every Subaru Station Wagon you can find.
You can give everyone healthcare, (if you can find any practicing doctors) and Howard Dean, who will follow you to your turf.
We’ll continue to believe healthcare is an amazing privilege and not a right.
We’ll keep The Battle Hymn of the Republic and the National Anthem. I’m sure you’ll be happy to substitute Imagine, I’d Like to Teach The World To Sing, KumBaYa, or We Are the World.
We’ll practice “trickle down” economics and you can give “trickle up” poverty its best shot.
Since it so often offends you, we will keep our History, our Name, and our Flag.
Would you agree to this? If so please pass it along to other like-minded patriots, and if you do not agree just hit delete and hang on.
In the spirit of friendly parting, I will bet you ANWAR on who will need whose help in 15 years.
A Right Wing American
P.S. please take Barbara Streisand.

How can you not laugh at this?! They took a black widow spider to the zoo. These people found a poisonous spider in their food and they saved it in a jar until they could get it to the zoo. I would say “only in Seattle” but I’m sure that wouldn’t be true.

I’m looking forward to a joyful Christmas spent with family and friends. Let us not forget that the birth of Jesus is the real reason we will celebrate tomorrow. I wish you safe travels, contented children, lots of gratitude, plenty of fudge and no fruitcake on your Christmas table. Take the time to relax and reflect on all that you have. Remember to thank God that you have the privilege to celebrate the birth of His Son in the greatest nation that has ever existed–America.
“In spite of everything, we Americans are still uniquely blessed, not only with the rich bounty of our land but by a bounty of the spirit—a kind of year-round Christmas spirit that still makes our country a beacon of hope in a troubled world and that makes this Christmas and every Christmas even more special for all of us who number among our gifts the birthright of being an American.”
From his Christmas Day radio address; December 25, 1982

The Drudge Report has a poll up this morning. You can vote on which shirtless stud you find more appealing–Vladimir Putin or the chosen one, Barack Obama. Currently, Putin is leading with well over 50%.

With approximately a foot of snow out in my yard, my mind is more made up than ever that manmade global warming is a fraud. The only thing that really leaves me really dismayed is the prospect of a period of prolonged cooling. I was looking forward to hotter summers…heck, living in Western Washington, I’d settle for having summer at all.

“As a parent, there’s a certain joy in giving, in seeing the packages pile up and in surprising the kids. But excess also runs counter to the message we try to send all year, that money doesn’t fall from the sky and we should buy and consume thoughtfully. The challenge is particularly acute this year, when many of our budgets are tighter and we are, or feel, poorer than just a few months ago.”
I’ve been experiencing a little of this feeling this year. It will be my daughter’s first Christmas and I can’t wait to see her open the presents that we’ve picked out for her. But, I’m leery of overindulgence. There are those children who are so blessed with material things that they fail to appreciate what they have. I can only imagine that they grow into really miserable adults. In the future, when my daughter is more aware of her surroundings and is able to think about what it means to want, have and give, we’ll talk about the real significance of Christmas. I hope to be able to teach her that sometimes she should be grateful for the things that aren’t under the Christmas tree, too.

I do grudgingly have to give PETA credit. Despite their growing irrelevance, they still stand for their principles. And it’s funny. I wonder what they would have to say about the guys who crammed 12 pigs in their van.

Maybe not so funny for the farmer who had his pigs stolen–hopefully these 12 were returned to him. But just put your imagination to work and really visualize 12 pigs in a small van–see, you’re laughing now, right? Happy friday!
