"A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship. The average age of the world's greatest civilizations has been 200 years.

The people go from bondage to spiritual truth, to great courage, from courage to liberty, from liberty to abundance, from abundance to selfishness, from selfishness to complacency, from complacency to apathy, from apathy to dependence, from dependence back again to bondage." by Anonymous

Did George Washington ever suppose that prayer would someday be outlawed in his nation?
Almighty God: We make our earnest prayer that Thou wilt keep these United States in Thy holy protection; that thou wilt incline the hearts of the citizens to cultivate a spirit of subordination and obedience to government; and entertain a brotherly affection and love for one another and for their fellow citizens of the United States at large. And finally that Thou wilt most graciously be pleased to dispose us all to do justice, to love mercy and to demean ourselves with that charity, humility and pacific temper of mind which were the characteristics of the divine author of our blessed religion, and without a humble imitation of whose example in these things we can never hope to be a happy nation. Grant our supplication, we beseech thee, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
This prayer is engraved on a bronze tablet in Saint Paul's Chapel, Broadway and Vesey Streets, New York City, and supposedly was quoted from Franklin Steiner's "The Religious Beliefs of Our Presidents," pages 19, 20. Today, there are attacks upon this prayer claiming that Washington never wrote or prayed it. It is very difficult to discern the truth of history.

Last week, when we discovered that at least one Islamist Terrorist had openly infiltrated the Officer Corps of the United States Army, we stood in stunned silence as those who rule over us immediately attempted to convince us we did not see what we saw. They said we did not see a Muslim Radical gun down 44 unarmed American soldiers in their homeland. They explained that Major Hasan was just another deranged individual, whose religion was of no consequence as he committed workplace violence.
Our elitist betters have practically twisted themselves into pretzels to spin Major Nidal Hasan's act of warfare into something that they say American Christians do every day - massacre their fellows. America's media, military, society, law enforcement, authorities and politicians from the State House to the White House have been working overtime explaining, denying, excusing, dodging, blaming, and deceiving the American people. The treacherous lies of America's elites in defense of Radical Islam demonstrate their dedication to the enforcement of Shariah law.
Since September 11th, 2001, there have been 14,363 world-wide attacks by Islamists. Fifty percent of Muslims believe that Americans should be murdered because of their wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. However, under American Sharia Law, we are forced to not notice the Jihadis amongst us. We are silenced into submission and forced to turn our heads and look away as the evil-doers wage warfare against erstwhile free people, for to speak against the favored faith is a crime under Sharia.
It Isn't Political Correctness, It's Sharia

What happened to our brave soldiers at Fort Hood, Texas is a national outrage and the American people must rise up and kill, once and for all, the evil that is political correctness. Our government, our schools, our media, all of our institutions, and even our military are infested with the scourge which silences reason and paralyzes common sense. Political correctness killed our soldiers on American soil, where they should have been safe from the enemy they have sworn to protect us from. Instead, America's restrictive politically correct speech codes allowed the enemy within our own borders to form a fifth column which at this very moment flourishes, placing our fighting men and women in grave peril.
At this very time, a few days after a United States military doctor gunned down the very people the Army had placed under his care, most of America's media is still too politically correct to investigate the Islamist connection with the massacre and is continuing to come up with defenses for Major Hasan's treachery. Americans must await news coming from the overseas "London Guardian" which is not fearful of investigating and exposing the evil actions of Major Hasan. We watch with disgust as our our government, the U.S. Army and America's supposedly mainstream media institutions furiously attempt to cover up any inklings of terrorist connection to the massacre.
Political Correctness is a far greater danger to America than Al Qaeda and Radical Islam. Al Qaeda can kill our people, but the goal of Political Correctness is to exterminate the heart and soul of our nation. Wake up America! Plunge a stake through the wickedness of Political Correctness once and for all. Speak freely the truth and demand the same from your government!
Demand that treacherous journalists like Evan Thomas of Newsweek and Chris Matthews of MSNBC who ridicule Americans and spread untruths be punished. It was especially galling that Chris Matthews told viewers it was not a crime for a United States Army officer to make contact with America's enemy, Al Gaeda.

A democracy is always a transitory form of government. It cannot exist in a permanent state. A democracy survives until a majority of its people discovers it can vote itself largess from the public treasury. After that, the majority always votes for the politician promising the most benefits from the public till. The democracy then collapses upon the financial embers of its immolation. Thereafter it requires a strong man to rescue it, a dictatorship, until it evolves into a monarchy.
The video above is of American Muslims praising Major Nidal Hasan for his cowardly act of gunning down innocent, unarmed soldiers at Fort Hood, Texas. These Muslims described him as "an Officer and a Gentleman."
Major Hasan is also a hero on Facebook. Someone named Ra'd Jundallah has created a Fan Page where Hasan already has 48 devotees: Major Nidal Malik Hasan - True American Hero!. Ra'd Jundallah, creator of the Major Nidal Malik Hasan Fan Page, himself has 485 Facebook friends.
Fort Hood Shooting - The Army Killer Was Linked to September 11th Terrorists
Major Hasan worshipped at the Dar al-Hijrah mosque, named as the most dangerous mosque in America by Paul Sperry in his book "Infiltration." The mosque was led by a radical Imam who was a "spiritual adviser" to three of the hijackers who attacked America on Septeber 11th, 2001. Hasan was attending this controversial mosque in Great Falls, Virginia, at the same time as the three terrorists. His mother’s funeral was held there in May 2001. The Imam at the time was Anwar al-Awlaki, an American-born Yemeni scholar who was banned from addressing a meeting in London last August because he is accused of supporting attacks on British troops and backing terrorist organizations.
It has been three days since Major Malik Nadal Hasan, calmly executed twelve soldiers, one civilian, and gunned down 38 others as sitting ducks at Fort Hood, while chanting "Allahu Akbar." Since then, our politically correct government and media have been excuse-making for his actions since then. Professorial Barack Obama urged Americans not dwell upon the suspect’s religion and admonished us that "We cannot fully know what leads a man to do such a thing." Oh, really?
Those who worked with Major Hasan at Walter Reed knew he was a Fundamentalist Muslim. He explained what he believed in a Dawah Session, where he made four assertions about the Koran:
1. "If you don't believe, you are condemned to hell" -- Koran 4:140; Koran 9:49; Koran 9:68; Koran 9:73
2. If you don't believe, "your head is cut off" -- Koran 8:12; Koran 47:4
3. If you don't believe, "you're set on fire" -- Koran 33:64; Koran 48:13; Koran 76:44.
4. If you don't believe, "burning oil is burned down your throat" -- Koran 18:29; Koran 44:43-46
The University of Virginia refers on-line to al-qur'anu l-karîm, as the Koran and has turned it into an electronic version: The Koran at the Electronic Text Center, University of Virginia. The University of Michigan also has an electronic version of the Koran which is searchable at its website.
The University of Southern California has three translations of the Qur'an at its website, where they note: "any translation of the Qur'an immediately ceases to be the literal word of Allah, and hence cannot be equated with the Qur'an in its original Arabic form. In fact, each of the translations on this site is actually an interpretation which has been translated. The first-time reader is strongly advised to read the introduction to the translations we have made available. Corrections and suggestions are appreciated."
Catholic Encylopedia has a synopsis of the "Koran", from a Roman Catholic viewpoint of course, which is described as; "The sacred book of the Muslims, by whom it is regarded as the revelation of God. Supplemented by the so-called Hadith, or traditions, it is the foundation of Islam and the final authority in dogma and belief, in jurisprudence, worship, ethics, and in social, family, and individual conduct."
There is a site called Holy Quran Resource Group which has information on the Quran.
Scott Ott at Scrapple Face has an interesting post on the various names used for the Holy Book of Islam. Actually, I think he hits the nail on the head.
"Muslims Riot Over Spelling of 'Koran' in U.S. Media" by Scott Ott, (2005-05-17)
-- As many as 25 people died and dozens more were injured during riots in Afghanistan today which erupted over what one Muslim cleric called "the U.S. media's desecration-by-mispelling" of the name of Islam's most holy book. Indeed, American editors have failed to reach consensus on how to render the holy book's name. Some spell it with a 'K' others with a 'Q' and -- perhaps most offensive to Muslim sensibilities -- some insert a meaningless apostrophe in the middle of the word.

That is the question! I tried to telephone my Representative in Congress, Gerry Connolly of Virginia's 11th District, about the changes to my medical care in the new Health Bill. I guess he is too busy to listen to constituents. No one answered the phone. The new Health Care Bill is putting TRICARE for Life on the chopping block - Higher deductibles, Co-pays and even Premiums.
I am trying to find the Health Care Bill that the Democrats promised to post on the Internet so that I can read these changes they say are on pages 77, 172, 189, 218, and 434. Barack Obama promised that we get to keep our same plans, but now we find our plan costs $6000 per person more per year for the Medicare Supplement promised to military retirees.
So then I tried to telephone my Congressman again and got a constant busy signal! I did find the ObamaCare Plan posted at the his web site (Rep. Gerry Connolly, VA 11th District, "H.R. 3962" and I went to pages 77, 172, 189, 218, & 434. What I found is that I need to hire a lawyer to understand the gibberish. However, I found NO "TRICARE for Life" mentioned anywhere in the entire document. Why?
H. R. 3962 To provide affordable, quality health care for all Americans and reduce the growth in health care spending, and for other purposes.

Anderson Cooper was among the first of the so-called "journalists" who set the example for the rest of the rabid pack to follow. It was he who used the word meaning a homosexual act in April when Tea Parties were first being announced. Over and again Cooper gleefully injected the vulgar slang as often as possible into his derisive comments on the tea party protests. When his professionalism as a national journalist was questioned for such offensive language, Anderson Cooper eventually was forced to apologize.
But Anderson Cooper set the example that virtually all television networks and Democrat politicians today continue to use to ridicule American citizens exercising their constitutional right to assemble and protest. These journalists and Democrats have no shame at all in referring to grandmothers, stay-at-home moms, babes in arms, children in strollers, disabled veterans, and whoever else dares to protest the government, with a homosexual expletive so vile, that most citizens at Tea Parties have never heard before.
Media Ignorance of Tea Bags and Tea Parties
MSNBC - America's Sleaziest Television Network
The ObamaNation is a single-party state. Single-party states usually arise from Leninist, fascist or nationalist ideologies. When the ruling party subscribes to a form of Marxism-Leninism, the one-party state system is usually called a communist state. However, communist states do not like to use the failed term of "Communist" to describe themselves, so they adopt more acceptable words. The Democrats of the ObamaNation call their nation a "democratic republic."
Barack Obama was elected to the Office of Presidency with the votes of university-educated youths who had been indoctrinated by Leftist professors with socialist and communist-leaning ideologies, and immigrants and ethnic minorities whose interests lie with the furtherance of the Socialist Welfare State. Obama proclaimed that his political and cultural views could be judged by the people he appointed to run his government. We now see that a large number of Obama's appointees are unabashed communists, Marxists, Maoists, anti-Americans and NAMBLA members, as are many of the official visitors to the Obama White House. ("Tell Me Who Your Friends Are")
Those who believe in single-party rule believe that it strengthens the sense of unity and commonality found in single-party states. Allowing additional political parties to have an input into the government would introduce division and stymie economic and political development. This one-party type of government was responsible for the great success of transforming the backward, agrarian country of Russia into the superpower nation of the Soviet Union (USSR).
The Democrats of the single-party ObamaNation believe that one-party rule enables them to legislate "good" long-term policies, such as nationalized health care that opposition parties would block if they were able to obtain power. They consider a single party system to be truly democratic, as their candidates are popularly elected with the help of government-sponsored entities, such as ACORN, government-run media and state-endorsed unions such as SEIU.
The One-Party ObamaNation has its own national ensign which is usually displayed with the face of Barack Obama superimposed over the flag of the former United States of America. The ObamaNation flag by SICH, was originally uploaded by tofz4u.

Lord Christopher Monckton spoke at Bethel University in St. Paul, MN last week on the UN Climate Change treaty scheduled to be signed in Copenhagen this coming December 2009. His speech was entitled “Is Obama Poised to Cede US Sovereignty?”
Here is why the truth matters. It was all very well for jesting Pilate to ask that question and then not to tarry for an answer. But that question that he asked, “what is the truth?” is the question which underlies every question and in the end it is the only question that really matters. When you ask that question what you are really asking is “what is the truth about the matter?” And we are now going to see why it matters morally, socially, and politically, as well as economically and scientifically. That the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth should inform public policy on this question.

"The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down" is about the Danville train, the main supply line into Richmond during the War Between the States. During the Siege of Petersburg Stoneman's Yankees "tore up the track again." The siege lasted from June 1864 until April 1865, when both Petersburg and Richmond fell. The Confederates were starving: "We were hungry; Just barely alive." The South lost but forever afterwards, Southerners vowed to rise again. Perhaps that is what is a-happening now at this point in our history with the rise of Tea Parties, emphasis on honoring the Constitution and people's concerns with loss of liberties and the demise of capitalism.

The Associated Press in 2004, described Barack Obama as "Kenyan-born" when he was running for Senator. However, when he began running for U.S. President that same Associated Press always described him as born in Hawaii. In fact, some claim there is actually a Hawaiian Certificate of Birth which a few have said they've inspected. If anyone asks for explanation of such confusion or proof of Obama's actual birthplace, they are immediately labelled as RACISTS. It is known as the silencing of free speech with the "Audacity of Race-baiting" which rules America in these so-called enlightened times.
This was snagged from the the Sunday Standard of the "East African Standard" newspaper of June 27, 2004, verified by the Archive of the newspaper HERE.

David Letterman’s Hatred of Sarah Palin, Thursday, June 11th, 2009.
Poor Dave. Forced Into a Shotgun Marriage at His Advanced Age. What a Pity!
It was too, too sickening. Julia Roberts’ fawning and teasing 62-year-old David “The Lecher” Letterman on what had prompted America’s most celebrated woman-hater to tie the knot. “I don’t know if I can look you in the eye anymore…” she told him. “Last time I saw you, you were single and then I, like, hypnotized you in my white suit or something and you went off and married Regina.”
Oh, it was ME, ME, ME, Julia Roberts, who motivated old Dave to sneak out and secretly marry someone he had, for many, many years avoided marrying.
Well … Ms. Roberts, flatter yourself as you may, but YOU had nothing to do with David Letterman’s “shotgun” marriage. Neither did his bride, Regina Lasko, as she had tried and failed in the past to get him to the alter. It was Governor Sarah Palin who came gunning for him and FORCED him kicking and screaming to the alter. Dave was not a happy camper.
Since Sarah Palin appeared on the political scene, David LETTERMAN has been having a misogynist’s dream with ridiculing both her and her seventeen-year-old daughter for not aborting their “undesirable” babies, as any progressive Liberal woman would have done. He became especially obsessed with placing the Scarlet A upon the breast of Governor Palin’s young, underage daughter, whom David Letterman lampooned as “knocked up.” Yes, you’ve got that right. David Letterman, a sixty-something vicious comic labelling an underage girl as a slut for getting pregnant. As if the young girl did not already have enough problems, her pregnancy was the object of David Letterman’s vile lechery, night after night on national CBS television.
All the while that David Letterman was condemning Bristol Palin for getting pregnant, or “knocked-up” as was his usual description, he never once saw himself as he really was. He was never able to see his own reflection in a mirror, for if he had he would have seen that he was the superior “male” pot calling the slutty “female” kettle black. David Letterman had “knocked-up” one of his own employees six years prior, and she too refused to get an abortion. How about them apples? Poor Dave. He never once realized what a hypocrite he was until “friends” started pointing it out to him.
Not only his friends, but soon his enemies who were pro-women and supporters of Sarah Palin, began calling him a hypocrite for what he had been doing to the young Palin daughter. While Bristol Palin was condemned to wear the Scarlet A about her neck, lecherous David Letterman was getting lots of laughs from CBS’s audience of drunken and stoned twenty-year-old women-haters just by mentioning the Palin family.
So … one day, tired of being labeled a hypocrite, Old Dave sneaked off with his former “knocked-up” employee and her “out-of -wedlock” five-year-old child and had an official marriage ceremony performed. Looming over Old Dave with her moose-hunting shotgun to his head was Sarah Palin, the unofficial Maid of Honor. Later, David Letterman came to his senses and realized what had happened to him. After all these years of bachelorhood he had been forced into a marriage that he had never intended, to someone who was his definition of a slut who got “knocked-up.” This was a tragic state of affairs for an avowed chauvinist pig.
Knowing that his marriage was totally the fault of the Palins, as soon as he arrived back from his supposed secret honeymoon, off he went on the Palins. That is when he started making fun of the fourteen-year-old Palin daughter. She was not even pregnant, so he made up jokes about her being “knocked up” by a prominent athlete and serving as a prostitute for a former governor of New York.
David Letterman got lots of laughs from a CBS audience of sexual perverts when he described a fourteen-year-old child being raped by a male athlete while she was at a baseball game with her mother, who apparently looked the other way. (The Video) When complaints came in to CBS and Letterman’s advertisers, including Mars M&M Candy, Lexus, Kellogg’s, Olive Garden, Downey, Best Western, Hellman’s, and others about the harm being inflicted upon American women and children by David Letterman’s trivializing rape of a child, the comic, in a brazen show of contempt, followed up by repeating every one of the offensive jokes and more on a following national broadcast. CBS knows that David Letterman is a misogynist bigot, but as long as he is not a conservative misogynist bigot, that is A-okay with CBS.

That was the prophesy. The reality is that Democracy, the Internet, and the Overthrow of Everything to do with Radical Redistributionism is being led in this Digital Era by Counter-revolutionary Andrew Breitbart. Breitbart is denied access to America's state-controlled media, so he created his own website, BigGovernment.com, and instead of disseminating information on State-run Television, he used Google's YouTube as his medium to expose the Radical Redistributionists in real time, in their own words. Andrew Breitbart did not write a book "Rules for Counter-Radicals," he lived the life and did the deeds.
Writing in "NationalReviewOnline," Kathryn Jean Lopez labels Breitbart an "Internet Juggernaut:"
The Radical Left feels it has been endowed with the Keys to the Kingdom as it audaciously moves forward to advance Obama's radical "Change." With Andrew Breitbart leading the "Charge of the Counter-Radicals," the Left's success is no longer viewed as inevitable. Mainstream America has wearied of the "Audacity of Tyranny," as it sees its liberties trodden asunder by the Left's Annointed Elitists.
He took his inspiration from Sixties radical Saul Alinsky, author of Rules for Radicals, and quoted him thus: “We will start with the system because there is no other place to start from except political lunacy. It is most important for those of us who want revolutionary change to understand that revolution must be preceded by reformation. To assume that a political revolution can survive without the supporting base of a popular reformation is to ask for the impossible in politics.”
“Bypass the Gatekeepers.”
“Don’t Wait for Authorization.”
“Target Your Villain.”
“Adapt and Innovate.”
“Embrace the Attacks.”
“Fight Small, Win Big.”
As Radical Redistributionists chant praises to their Left-wing Monarch sitting upon America's throne, Andrew Breitbart stands alone pointing to him and revealing that the little Leftist Emperor has no clothes.

(Planned Parenthood Promotional Video, featuring "Superhero for Choice")
While ex-President Jimmy Carter, Bill Cosby and virtually all supporters of Barack Obama are labelling as RACISTS anyone who criticises Barack Obama's massive takeover of America's health industry, no one is pointing a finger at America's "official" Eugenics program that snuffed out the innocent lives of more than ten million blacks in just twenty years. In fact, the most enthusiastic supporter of Planned Parenthood's American Eugenics is the Democrat Party, supported overwhelmingly by black people. While blacks are labelling all white Southerners as RACISTS, none of them has ever peered into a looking-glass to glimpse the self-loathing black peering back. Those Democrat blacks in Congress condemning their white critics are all strong supporters of Planned Parenthood and the "pro-Choice" movement, which has practiced black eugenics since its founding by Margaret Sanger. This promotional video created by Planned Parenthood is evidence that they are indeed targeting youngsters "of color" with their message. But hey, who's noticing? Not any black leaders, as they are too busy trying to slander as RACISTS any and all white critics of Barack Obama.
She's Planned Parenthood's Superhero for Choice! Call Homeland Security - QUICK! We now have our own homegrown terrorists right under our noses in the City by the Bay - San Francisco, and funded by our own American taxpayers. Planned Parenthood's Superhero For Choice kills pro-life Christians and abstinence educators in her never-ending quest to make America safe for abortion. This jaw-dropping bad cartoon video's message to youngsters "of color" is that white people are evil Christians and Planned Parenthood is their hero. The promotional is so awful that Planned Parenthood San Francisco removed it from their site.
Watch as Superhero for Choice pounces upon peaceable Pro-Life demonstrators in front of a Planned Parenthood clinic. After she shoots and explodes them all with her condom gun, she smiles and says "That's more like it. Open for business $$! Now everyone who needs low cost and confidential health care may enter freely, without intimidation or violence." I kid you not!
UPDATE: When is Water-boarding Good? When used against pro-life Christians, but only when they are drowned by it.

As a result of the unbelievably vile and vulgar obscene names that have been hurled at me and others on Twitter by Scottish thugs, I have no more interest in anything Scottish or of Scotland. Scotland can just go to Hell, if it is not already there. These Twittering Scots should love Hell as they will think it Paradise.
In other words, I now have a visceral and emotional disgust with all things Scottish and Scotland which I expect to be with me for a long, long time.
I have been a blogger for many years. I have slammed many people and countries with my political pontifications when I disagree with them. BUT NEVER has any male, ever before, called me the most vile and foul name for a woman in the English language -- until now. Multiple Scottish male punks on Twitter have done just that, and I am a 68-year-old woman. That is in addition to the Scottish language names they've labeled me of which I know not the meaning. One Scottish man, Sparky, even wished me dead in this blog's comments. This has been in retaliation to me expressing my views of Scotland's freeing a terrorist convicted by Scottish courts of bombing PanAm Flight 103 over Lockerbie in 1988, and which a majority of Americans view as a moral outrage.
I will thank God every day remaining to me that my ancestors left Scotland long ago. Where did all the Bravehearts go that I've read about all of my life? They're obviously NOT in Scotland anymore. From what I can tell of Scotland, it has now become a land of lily-livered Chicken-hearts. And as for their attitude towards women? Well, I would choose their beloved Colonel Gadhafi's Libya as a better place for women, than I would judge Scotland to be. Shame, Shame on the Men of Scotland, and pity the women.
Ode to Twittering Scots: "With disgust I view your morbid face, Little chieftains of the sausage race! Above them all you take your place, Vulgarities, Obscenities, tripe, or Scottish links: Contemptous of women, you be unworthy of any respect, Even As long as a fly's ass."
This past week in Scotland saw release of the Lockerbie Bomber by the Scottish and UK governments. The government of Scotland and most of the Scottish people claim that their Justice Secretary made the "right decision" for "absolutely the right reasons." That he was bound by the so-called "Rule of Compassion" in the Scottish "Rule of Law" has been reiterated ad infinitum, by Scottish leaders and people, Scottish scholars, and UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown in support of their courts. They tell us that there was just no legal way for Scottish courts to show "compassion" to the families of the 270 slaughtered innocents. If it is true, as Scottish law scholars are saying, that their law can show mercy (compassion) only to convicted felons and not to the families of murderers' victims, how can that be justice? The answer is, there is no justice in Scotland, for "Justice without mercy is cruelty," taught Saint Thomas Aquinas.
No Mercy, No Justice: "Justice and mercy work beautifully together, and make no sense apart. Justice leads up to mercy, and mercy picks up where justice ends. Justice that does not allow for mercy is cold and inhuman. Mercy that does not presume justice is irresponsible and sentimental." Thomas Aquinas said that mercy "does not destroy justice, but is a certain kind of fulfillment of justice. .. Mercy without justice is the mother of dissolution; (and) justice without mercy is cruelty."
UPDATE: Even More Galling News! Scotland and Britain's new best friend, Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi, is due to set his bloody foot on U.S. soil for the first time next month when he comes to address the U.N. General Assembly. This evil-doer whose Libyan intelligence bombed an American airship out of the skies over Lockerbie, Scotland, killing 259 innocents on board, wants to stay in a Libyan compound in New Jersey. How appropriate considering that 33 of those murdered were from New Jersey and were never allowed to returned to their home state alive.
UPDATE 2: All for the love of Libyan oil and Colonel Gadhafi
The Scotsman is reporting that the Scottish government shopped around for doctors until they found one who promised that Lockerbie Bomber Megrahi would be dead from prostate cancer in three months, which would trigger Scotland's "Compassion" law for murderers.

Scotland releases, on "humanitarian grounds," a murdering terrorist of 270 innocent souls, which just goes to prove that all the Scots with brains must have emigrated from Scotland.

Have you ever had the unpleasant experience of biting into a delicious-looking peach, such as these, and ending up with a mouth full of tasteless mush? Well, I have, and it has happened one too many times for me. My latest experience comes from South Carolina peaches that I purchased yesterday at a boutique or upscale grocer in my neighborhood. In the past I've had good experiences purchasing fresh fruit there, but now it seems they have begun marketing mushy fruit too.
Three years ago when I first blogged about my disgust at purchasing mushy peaches, I asked America's grocers and fruit growers why they hoodwink American consumers into purchasing their picture-perfect fruit, such as these peaches, when the fruit is unfit for human consumption.
Mushy Peaches , 2 September 2006 - 3 Photos
I photographed the peaches to show their beautiful appearance before I flushed them down the garbage disposal. These peach beauties were home-grown. They spent months in orchard sunshine, precious Arab fuel was expended to take them to market, a customer spent hard-earned dollars to purchase them from a grocery store, and then they were sent down the drain, as they were too mushy and tasteless for human consumption.
At that time I received an email from a peach grower who told me I was being unfair to blame mealy peaches on the fruit growers, as he explained that the peaches are perfect when shipped from the orchards, but are damaged by being transported or stored at cold temperatures. He wrote that growers refer to this mealiness condition as “internal breakdown” and that it is the result of improper handling after the fruit leaves the orchard’s facility.
When fruit leaves the grower’s cold storage it travels in refrigerated vans, is unloaded to a retailers’ warehouses, sent to stores’ back rooms, placed upon store shelves, before being purchased by consumers. At any one of these points, if the fruit is subjected for too long to temperatures in the range of 36-46F, which growers dub the Killing Zone, there will be internal breakdown. Because the grower has no control over the fruit once it leaves his facility, he questioned whether growers deserve my bad publicity for as he claimed, “We do not ship mealy fruit.” Well, it was not my fault, as I never place fresh peaches in the refrigerator.
What infuriates me so much, is that when I as a consumer purchase pears and peaches, I cannot tell by their appearance that they have already been ruined for human consumption. The grocer obviously knows that they have, for he or she can taste-test samples. Yet grocers sell them anyway.

Obama Snubs America's Heritage While Praising Russia's! At the exact same time that President Obama dismissed the Revolutionary War heritage of America, he was praising with uplifted voice the "timeless heritage" of Russia.
For the first time in the history of the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution (The DAR), an American President officially snubbed its members at their yearly convention in Washington, D.C., appropriately named "Continental Congress." Every single American President for 118 years has addressed the respected, non-political woman's organization, either in person or via written or video address. This year, 2009, the stunned audience of descendants of Revolutionary War Patriots sat in silence awaiting a message from their President, for whom many of the women had voted.
The lineage society, whose motto is "God, Home and Country," accepts women who can prove direct descent from a patriot of the American Revolution regardless of race, religion or ethnic background. This year, civil rights legend Dr. Dorothy Irene Height was awarded the DAR's highest recognition, the DAR Medal of Honor, for her lifetime of service, leadership and patriotism.
Other events highlighted during Continental Congress were:
- Founders Medals for Patriotism, Education, Heroism, and Youth
- Americanism Award
- Outstanding Veteran-Patient of the Year
- Outstanding Youth Volunteer of the Year
- Dr. Anita Newcomb McGee Award for the Army Nurse of the Year
- Margaret Cochran Corbin Award for distinguished women in military service
- Outstanding Teacher of American History
- Outstanding Community Service Award
During 2008-2009, which included Barack Obama's tenure as America's President, women of the DAR volunteered more than 60,000 hours to veteran patients, awarded over $150,000 in scholarships to American students, and supported schools for the underprivileged with donations exceeding one million dollars.
While President Obama deemed that the women of the DAR were not worthy of their nation's gratitude, he did address the 2009 graduating class of the New Economic School at Gostinny Dvor in Russia on July 7, 2009, during the exact time that the Daughters of the American Revolution were in Washington remembering America's "heritage" and the sacrifices of their patriotic ancestors of the Revolution. Obama spoke to the Russians of their "heritage," with these exact words from The White House Official Web Site:
I speak to you today with deep respect for Russia's timeless heritage. Russian writers have helped us understand the complexity of the human experience, and recognize eternal truths. Russian painters, composers, and dancers have introduced us to new forms of beauty. Russian scientists have cured disease, sought new frontiers of progress, and helped us go to space.
These are contributions that are not contained by Russia's borders, as vast as those borders are. Indeed, Russia's heritage has touched every corner of the world, and speaks to the humanity that we share. That includes my own country, which has been blessed with Russian immigrants for decades; we've been enriched by Russian culture, and enhanced by Russian cooperation. And as a resident of Washington, D.C., I continue to benefit from the contributions of Russians -- specifically, from Alexander Ovechkin. We're very pleased to have him in Washington, D.C.
UPDATE: The official statement from Linda Gist Calvin, President General of the NSDAR, graciously states “Rumors have been circulating suggesting that the absence of greetings was an intentional slight on the part of the President. Your President General is sure this is not the case. … Greetings from the White House to the DAR Continental Congress actually did not begin until 1910. There have also been more than a dozen years since that time in which greetings were not forthcoming. Regardless, please be assured that the DAR will continue to foster relationships with those in the White House and share our objectives of historic preservation, education and patriotism.”

And BTW, should not Justices on the highest court in the land be Americans? When have you heard the word "American" used to describe soon-to-be Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor?

ABC News Covers Barack Obama's Rear - Once Again
But, it only gets worse for Big O the longer he hangs out in Italy with Sarkozy! Look at this and notice that the leader of Italy is behaving extraordinarily good: head hung low contemplating the ground:

From London come these most interesting photographs of Malia Obama and her family's political fashion statement. Pre-teen Malia was accompanying her father, the American President, in Europe. Why does the American media refuse to publish photographs of the Obama trip to Europe that America's taxpayers are paying for?
What was the message that the Obama family was sending to America and the world by having their daughter wear the American anti-war symbol on the very day that her father was shooting missiles into Afghanistan and Pakistan, killing scores of people? Is the Obama family protesting America's war policy? If so, why not tell the Commander-in-chief to just STOP IT? Or was Malia a walking poster child for the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament? No one believes this t-shirt to be just an inadvertent wardrobe malfunction with Malia choosing a peacenik, anti-nuke logo instead of a smiley face or pink flower. Oh no! This European trip was an "official" state visit by the White House entourage, which apparently even included American celebrities. Official state visits are always very well planned in advance, particularly the family's public wardrobe.
Even if one does not find the message of the t-shirt to be interesting of itself, what about the appearance of the President's daughter being abducted by P-Diddy while the Secret Service looks on? Should not that merit a mention by America's media? Here we see P-Diddy (at least that's who I think he is) trying to kidnap Malia Obama while one Secret Service bodyguard looks away, another looks bemused, and a third looks like he's either drunk or totally contemptuous of the entire scene. Meanwhile, the fourth and fifth Malia bodyguards are cross-moonwalking, while an Italian police officer is concentrating on nabbing a pickpocket. Who knows what else we would find in this photograph if we could see the rest of the characters. Perhaps everyone following the Malia parade was wearing a "Death to America" t-shirt. Believe it or not, but later on Malia Obama removed the Peacenik T-shirt to reveal underneath ... ta da ... another Peacenik T-shirt in a different color. At least it was not a logo of Che Guerrero.

Don't look for this story at any "MSM" site or news outlet. It can only be found in English in the British Press. The America Press is afraid the Obama administration will punish them if they print the photograph. Don't think for one moment that David Letterman and his ilk will mention this photograph during their comedy routines that pass for News in America of today. They are all too occupied slandering the children of Sarah Palin.
