Obama proves once again that it's not about experience...'s about rewarding his cronies.

Louis Susman, a 71-year-old retired Citigroup Inc. senior investment banker, helped raise between 200,000 and 500,000 dollars for Obama's campaign, and another 300,000 for his inauguration. Mr. Susman has just been nominated to be the US ambassador to to the United Kingdom.

Look, I understand this isn't the first guy to be nominated for a position simply because he donated or raised hundreds of thousands of dollars. But here we are again witnessing that Obama's mantra of "change" is just an empty one. And the Obamazombies are still foaming at the mouth with excitement, ignoring every blatant sign that their Great Leader is a straw man.

I'm sure as long as Mr. Susman does whatever he can to insult the British, he'll do a fantastic job.

My Two Cents on Torture....again.

This will be my third post on the topic, but I think it's really important. And I want the liberals who read this to comment.

I found out about this from NewsBusters.

On Memorial Day 2002, Hannity and Colmes interviewed Army Staff Sergeant Troy Dunlap, who was held in Iraq as a POW during the 1991 Persian Gulf War. He was bringing a lawsuit against Iraq and Saddam Hussein for the torture he and other POWs had to endure.

"We have 17 POWs, the injuries range from broken legs, fractured skulls, beatings that were so bad that the body looked like it had been dipped in indigo dye. Techniques that were used where things such as beatings to the point where most of the beatings stopped only when the POW reached unconsciousness, use of electric shock, cattle prods, drug injections."

"In another case described in the lawsuit, Navy Cmdr. Lawrence Randolph Slade remembers fearing for his life 'every single second' of his six weeks in captivity. Guards broke his teeth and his nose, ruptured his eardrums, fractured vertebrae and knocked him unconscious. On four occasions, they put a gun to his head and pulled the trigger. "

"The 200-page suit details beatings of American POWs with pistols, weighted rubber hoses, blackjacks and fists. POWs were subjected to mock executions, threatened castrations and electrical shock. Some were kicked with steel-toed boots or hit on their knees with mallets. In at least one case, a POW plaintiff was so severely starved he ate the scabs off his own body. 'The first night I was there I was sure I was going to die,' the 31-year-old Dunlap said Tuesday. What kept him going, he said, was that a fellow captive was a female flight surgeon, who was seriously injured and sexually assaulted. 'I felt like I had to be strong for her' he said." (Andrew Herrmann, Chicago Sun Times)

The article literally brought tears to my eyes. Starvation to the point of eating your own scabs? While the scumbags at Gitmo gained weight from their three square meals a day?

To the traitors coming to the defense of the three terrorists who were waterboarded: you should be ashamed of yourselves. Where were you when these guys, OUR guys, had burning hot spoons placed on the back of their necks? Where were you when they were systematically starved? Why weren't you there, pointing fingers at the Iraqi teorrists who did this? Why weren't you screaming "torture" then!?

If someone says anything along the lines of "two wrongs don't make a right" or "we are better than them," your argument means nothing. It is IMPOSSIBLE to compare our techniques to theirs. Waterboarding does no physical damage; it creates the illusion of drowning. On the other hand, our guys were scarred and legitimately suffer from the real torture they had to endure.

Supreme Court Pick

I am sick and tired of this fascination with diversity. "Obama and Sotomayor stood with Vice President Joe Biden. It was a striking picture of diversity: a black president, a white vice president and a Hispanic nominee to the nation's highest court." What does diversity have to do with ability? It's obvious now that neither the black president or white vice president know what they're doing. But according to the MSM, being a minority is the best attribute one can have when vying for a public position (just ahead of being a tax cheat and a botox-filled clown).

Sotomayor is a graduate of Princeton and Yale Law School (but so is Obama, and we all know how smart of a person he is). "
In one of Sotomayor's most notable decisions, as an appellate judge she sided last year with the city of New Haven, Conn., in a discrimination case brought by white firefighters. The city threw out results of a promotion exam because too few minorities scored high enough. Coincidentally, that case is now before the Supreme Court," (AP). Too few? What determines "too few"? What if more minorities scored high enough than whites? Would it still be a case of discrimination? Sickening.

But you know what this is really about? Votes for the Obamanation in 2012. Hispanics usually vote democrat anyways, but by nominating a Hispanic woman to the Supreme Court, Obama is ensuring his securing of the Hispanic vote.

Sotomayor said over ten years ago, "I don't believe we should bend the Constitution under any circumstance. It says what it says. We should do honor to it." Let's see if she honors those words.

Memorial Day

I am so grateful for all of the armed men and women who have given their lives for this country.

Both of my grandfathers, who I mention below, were WWII vets. Unfortunately I do not know a whole lot about their time in the service. Neither of them talked about it.

Joseph W. Kielbasa
He was stationed in the Philippines and would have had to invade Japan if the bombs weren't dropped. I think my grandmother mentioned once that he never ate rice again after getting back.

Francis X. Smith
He was an ex-POW. In fact, he was captured twice and escaped once.

May they and all those who gave their lives to defend freedom rest in peace.

Obama Sets Car Emissions Standards

The Great One has decided. Passenger cars and light trucks will be required to get 39mpg and 30 mpg, respectively. In order for vehicles to be this efficient, they will have to be much smaller and lighter than we see today. The new standards are going to cost car companies billions of dollars, which of course will be passed on to the consumer (Isn't that a GREAT idea? Forcing companies to start spending billions and then forcing consumers to spend more during an economic recession? Sure, by 2016 we might be out...but we might not. And what happens now affects what happens then.).

What bothers me the most is that these new cars are NOT safe. 115 people die every day in car accidents in the United States [citation]. I predict that number will increase significantly once everyone's driving so-called smart cars, and I love how these liberal wackos are so interested in putting the environment before safety. (Speaking of the environment, I actually think it's ignorant for people to think that they can stop climate change. I don't buy that it's man-made. We are not that significant. How do these people think the ice age ended?) If I was starting a family, I would NOT want to buy some cheap, flimsy vehicle to carry my most precious cargo. I guess big brother's not going to let me have a choice in the matter.

But isn't that what it's all about? Limiting our choices? Controlling us? It starts with one thing - fluorescent light bulbs - and then it becomes unstoppable.

Big Mouth Biden is at it again

I'm going to start taking these things down so I can patent a Bidenisms calendar.

Clearly the vice president was not taught to think before speaking, as he has proved to us time and time again. This time, however, might be the worst yet. He actually disclosed the location of what used to be a secret VP bunker. He even described it in detail. You can read all about it here.

And people think Bush was an idiot...pffft.

Obama Opposes Detainee Abuse Photos

From Reuters: "President Barack Obama said on Wednesday he would fight the release of dozens of photographs showing the abuse of terrorism suspects, over concern the images could ignite a backlash against U.S. troops."
(Probably a good idea.)

But honestly, I would LOVE to see these pictures. I can see it now. Terrorist #24 pressing himself into a corner from fear of the caterpillar. Terrorist #16 has dark circles under his eyes from sleep deprivation. But what's this? Oh, it's the Daniel Pearl beheading video! How about we show THAT one to the public right along side photos of detainee abuse, and then continue to call what we do to terrorists "abuse." Wait, we can't. Because it's NOTHING compared to what those animals do to our guys (and Pearl was just a journalist!).

Why, why, WHY are people so concerned with how TERRORISTS are treated? Did they forget that these men are willing to kill themselves in the name of some God? That these men's torture tactics include putting a blowtorch to the skin or hanging one upside down and electrocuting him?

9-11 happened because we weren't on the offensive. Now we and our cities have been kept safe. A major terrorist attack in LA was thwarted thanks to waterboarding.

The problem with liberals is that they think a psycho terrorist can be cured with love and affection, and that if we just torture them with hugs, they'll realize the error of their ways.

On another note, I was having dinner with some of my 09-10 suitemates and politics came up....most of them love Obama. Guess I have some serious work to do starting in August!

Do you live in MA? Are you on welfare? Then you get a free car!

Massachusetts just might be the most worthless, useless state in the nation. Track record: Willie Horton, gay marriage, the "big dig," and now? Free cars for welfare recipients! Way to go, MA!

I originally saw the story here:

(I love his rants.)

And then I googled it and found it on So not only would the car be free, but the state, aka, taxpayer, covers "insurance, excise tax, title, registration, inspection, and approved repairs. The absolute frosting on the cake is a free AAA membership."

Honestly, it would be more beneficial to me to drop out of college, live at home, and go on welfare and unemployment. And if I move in with my grandma in MA, I could get a free car!

Catholics Attack 'Angels and Demons'

I didn't read the whole article because I was afraid there would be plot spoilers (I'm halfway through the book right now). I remember when The Da Vinci Code came out and Catholic priests were telling their parishioners not to go see it. This kind of attitude does not stop people from reading books or seeing movies. When someone tells you not to do something, it just makes you want to do it even more!

This is like banning Harry Potter books in libraries. It's absurd. These are FICTIONAL BOOKS, people. I thought The Da Vinci Code was a great book - but does that mean that I believe that Jesus had kids and His descendents are walking the earth today? No! Banning books/movies is so medieval. And if the Church is worried about getting a bad rep, too late. The media's already brainwashed people into thinking that every priest is a child molestor and every Christian is a psycho.
