Remembering the Reason for the Season

Luke 2

And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be taxed. (And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria.) And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city. And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judaea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage of David:) To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child. And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered. And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.

And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,

Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men

Matthew 2

Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem, Saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him. When Herod the king had heard these things, he was troubled, and all Jerusalem with him. And when he had gathered all the chief priests and scribes of the people together, he demanded of them where Christ should be born. And they said unto him, In Bethlehem of Judaea: for thus it is written by the prophet,
And thou Bethlehem, in the land of Juda, art not the least among the princes of Juda: for out of thee shall come a Governor, that shall rule my people Israel.

Then Herod, when he had privily called the wise men, enquired of them diligently what time the star appeared. And he sent them to Bethlehem, and said, Go and search diligently for the young child; and when ye have found him, bring me word again, that I may come and worship him also. When they had heard the king, they departed; and, lo, the star, which they saw in the east, went before them, till it came and stood over where the young child was. When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceeding great joy. And when they were come into the house, they saw the young child with Mary his mother, and fell down, and worshipped him: and when they had opened their treasures, they presented unto him gifts; gold, and frankincense and myrrh. And being warned of God in a dream that they should not return to Herod, they departed into their own country another way

Merry Christmas to You and yours!

2008 The Year Journalism Died.

It's been said that 2008 was the year that Journalism died. It's been on life support for years, but the Whitewashing and flat out campaigning for Barack Obama, pulled the plug on a Once great profession. Journalist were charged with Informing the Public, and keeping an eye on Tax Payer Dollars back in the day...Obviously that was then. This is now... All dreaming of being the next Woodward, today's "Journalists" leak Military Secrets, and do "in depth" investigative reporting on places they've never been, or interviews that never took place. You can argue over when Journalism kicked the bucket, but today the coffin was lowered into the ground.

America's most intellectually honest News man, Brit Hume delivered his last "Special Report". Hume has been named, Super important Political Correspondent or some such Title at Fox News but will no longer be doing nightly broadcasts. This is a sad day for me. Brit Hume was who I counted on to deliver the news with that smile that let you know he thinks the people in Washington on both sides of the Aisle are a little silly at times. Britt won awards for his coverage of the first gulf war before joining Fox News in 1995.

This video is an Homage to Brit Hume's "Stewardship of Special Report" as his friends and colleagues salute his career.

My Favorite News segment of all time is the "Political Grapevine" what Brit Hume calls the most "fascinating two minutes of television". Delivered with smirk, Hume reports stories that leave you shaking your head, but wanting to know more. Over the years, Brit Hume looked over his glasses at more than one correspondent, with a tilt and a nod to indicate what ever they were saying...He wasn't buying it. As a viewer you always had the sense that Brit was interested in the truth, not just what the PR people were saying. Whatever the issue effecting America, Brit Hume always seemed to actually care and he asked Questions. In a sea of yellow journalism, Brit Hume was always there with the Life preserver of common sense. Bret Bair, his named successor, has some impossibly big shoes to fill, I hope he's up to the challenge.

Brit Hume Delivered the News "Fair, Balanced and Unafraid" as he so often said with that knowing smile. I only wish there were more in his profession that felt the same way...The Media Research Center has delivered their 21st Annual Awards for the Year's Worst Reporting. Chris Matthew's won "Quote of the Year" with is tingling leg reaction to Barack Obama. As famous as this quote has become I was shocked to see the second half of it....

Co-anchor Chris Matthews: “I have to tell you, you know, it’s part of reporting this case, this election, the feeling most people get when they hear Barack Obama’s speech. My — I felt this thrill going up my leg. I mean, I don’t have that too often.
”Co-anchor Keith Olbermann: “Steady.”
Matthews: “No, seriously. It’s a dramatic event. He speaks about America in a way that has nothing to do with politics. It has to do with the feeling we have about our country. And that is an objective assessment.”
— Exchange during MSNBC’s coverage of the Virginia, Maryland and Washington D.C. primaries, February 12.

"And that is an objective assessment"? Holy Crap. We are in worse trouble than I thought. Thank God, this guy is out of the Democratic closet and running for Office in PA. Some people might actually think this guy gives them the "News" as in Factual information.
But Mr. Matthews is far from alone in his Ridiculousness.

Read this and Many other "Winners" selected by the Media Research Center in lots of fun categories.

Here are some of my favorites...and remember these "Journalists" are Supposed to be Giving you the News...not their opinion....

From the Category: Damn Those Conservatives

“[For Obama] the real test is yet to come. The Republican Party has been successfully scaring voters since 1968, when Richard Nixon built a Silent Majority out of lower- and middle-class folks frightened or disturbed by hippies and student radicals and blacks rioting in the inner cities....It is a sure bet that the GOP will try to paint Obama as ‘the other’ — as a haughty black intellectual who has Muslim roots (Obama is a Christian) and hangs around with America-haters....The real question is whether he [McCain] can — or really wants to — rein in the merchants of slime and sellers of hate who populate the Internet and fund the ‘independent expenditure’ groups who exercise their freedom in ways that give a bad name to free speech.”
— Richard Wolffe and Evan Thomas in an eight-page cover package touting “The O Team,” May 19 Newsweek. [64]

The Half Baked Alaska Award for Pummeling Palin was given to Matthews as well, but it was a runner up that got my vote. Ms.Robach manages to betray both Women and Journalistic ethics, when she said the following..

“If Sarah Palin becomes Vice President, will she be shortchanging her kids or will she be shortchanging the country?”
— NBC reporter Amy Robach on Today, September 3. [42]

The final quote I will share with you won The Obamagasm Award, a tough competition as you can imagine among the OLM. This category was as competitive as the Men's 50 Free in Beijing. Well the Winner is... Nancy Gibbs, Time magazine's Editor-at-Large during an interview with CNN. But I highly recommend you take the time to peruse the entire Media Research Center list yourself.

“Some princes are born in palaces. Some are born in mangers. But a few are born in the imagination, out of scraps of history and hope....Barack Hussein Obama did not win because of the color of his skin. Nor did he win in spite of it. He won because at a very dangerous moment in the life of a still young country, more people than have ever spoken before came together to try to save it. And that was a victory all its own.”
— Time’s Nancy Gibbs, Nov. 17 cover story.

I Miss Brit Hume Already....Thank you, Mr. Hume.

Obama Names Hyde Park Neighbor as Sec. of Education

So we heard from the imaginary "Office of the President Elect" today. And I've got to tell you Barack Obama has No Shame. None. Did he call a Press Conference to address the growing concern about the involvement of his staff in the Blago pay to play scheme? No you'll have to wait another Two weeks to find out what that 'internal investigation' uncovered. Today Barack Obama announced his pick for Secretary of Education, Arne Duncan. I'm sure it's a coincidence that Duncan just happens to be from Chicago's Hyde Park neighborhood, You know the same neighborhood where Obama lives along with his other Famous neighbors....

H/T HillBuzz Who asks the familiar question...Who are the people in Your Neighborhood?

One of the most common themes in all of the articles I've read is that Duncan is an outstanding Basketball Player, something Obama addressed during his Press Conference today...

President Elect Obama assures us:"I did not select Arne because he's one of the best basketball players I know. Although I will say that I think we are putting together the best basketball-playing Cabinet -- in American history. And I think that is -- that is worth noting." So if I've got this right, our Country is going to hell in a hand basket, but if North Korea challenges us to a pick up game, We will Crush them? Awesome.

Arne Duncan may be the Best Chicago has to offer, but he's still from Chicago. Duncan was selected by Chicago Mayor Richard Daily for his post as CEO of Chicago Public Schools in 2000. They don't call it Daily's Machine for Nothing, one day you're running a school system with a 50 percent graduation rate and over 30 violent deaths per year, Next day You're the United States Secretary of Education. While Duncan has been employed by Chicago Public Schools since 1998 he has never taught a classroom. The Hyde Park native first got involved in Education 'reform' in 1992 when he started working on the Ariel Education Initiative after he'd given up his career in Professional Basketball. Apparently Obama thinks Duncan's grasp of the educational system is Good enough for Your family....but not necessarily good enough for the Obama girls.

From US News and World Report:

Despite their friendship, the Obamas chose not to send their daughters to Chicago public schools. Instead, they enrolled them in the private University of Chicago Laboratory Schools, where Duncan went to school as a child. The Obamas have defended their decision to send their daughters to private school, saying they are doing what's best for them.

I'm sorry I've been trying to avoid writing anything related to the Cabinet selections or the possible "future administration" of Barack Obama. But this latest display of Nepotism by The One has pushed me over the edge. The Chicago Way has come to Washington, a place that needed more Scoundrels like New York City needs more Rats.

Is this the Change America Voted for? It's being widely reported that Rahm Emanuel or "Rahmbo" as he's know in political circles, Obama's choice for Chief of staff, had contact with Blago's people about filling the senate seat. With Obama himself stalling on releasing information, people are starting (finally) to ask themselves What did the Obama transition team know and When did they know it?....If what the Gateway Pundit has more on the Emanuel-Blago Connection:

Feds Taped Rahmbo Holding 21 Conversations On Senate Seat

Seven Days of Silence--
Have you seen Rahmbo?

The feds have 21 taped conversations of Rahm Emanuel
The Chicago Sun-Times reported:

Sneed hears rumbles President-elect Barack Obama's chief of staff, Rahm Emanuel, is reportedly on 21 different taped conversations by the feds -- dealing with his boss' vacant Senate seat!

A lot of chit-chat?

Hot air?

Or trouble?

To date: Rahm's been mum. Stay tuned.

Read the entire entry here along with Numerous back articles...Gateway Pundit: Feds Taped Rahmbo Holding 21 Conversations On Senate Seat

With all this flurry around in the News, one would think Obama would want to answer the questions and move on, but something tell me he can't as John Batchelor writes at his blog:
At the routine, glum media conference in Chicago to announce the new Education Secretary, the President-Elect Barack
Obama (or PEBO) took a second question that was aimed at the still mute Rahm Emanuel. PEBO cut off the inquirer with easy rhetoric, and there was no follow-up. Again, PEBO was obliged to point to the release of the results of the Obama team internal review of all contacts with Blago and his office re the Obama Senate seat since November 4, 2008. Before? And what is the definition of contacts? And will it include lists of emails or tweets or Ims? And what about contact between Obama team members re Blago and the now departed Chief of Staff John Harris? Unknown. Live blogging from the Wall Street Journal Washington Wire (all times Eastern Time Zone):

11:55: Second question on whether Obama supports a special election for his U.S. Senate seat, also asked about Rahm Emanuel's contacts with Gov. Rod Blagojevich's office. Obama cuts him off, notes that he will release his office contacts next week. On the special election, "I've said I don't think the governor can serve effectively in his office," he said, noting that he will defer to the legislature.

So that's how it's going to Be, Huh? Pres.-Elect Obama? We can ask all the questions we want, but you'll be avoiding them until you can devise the appropriate cover story. He should Hire Jesse Jackson Jr.'s PR People, they've been working double time to come up with something that will save J to Third Power's career...Sources tell ABC news in Chicago that Jackson may have been helping the Feds all along....They haven't gotten to the Chicago Sun Times yet as they have Other sources, who are telling them Jackson "isn't in the clear yet" But it's a start.

But with the Announcement today, I'm convinced Obama's now taken ownership of his Nepotism. As one blogger commented "I wish my friend was the President-elect." What is most annoying is how surprised I am with Barack Obama's brazen arrogance. I don't know why I'd be shocked when the man allowed himself to be referred to as "the Messiah" for over a year. But I guess I should be happy with Obama's choice of Chicagoans for Secretary of Education, instead of Arne Duncan, it could have been his other neighbor... Bill Ayers.

ATF Confirms Arson at Sarah Palin's Church

Previously labeled "Suspicious" the Fire at Sarah Palin's home Church in Wasilla was officially ruled an Arson today.

From the Anchorage Daily News:

From the Mat-Su Borough:

Federal ATF says accelerant poured on church

MAT-SU–The federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives said an accelerant had been poured on and around the outside of the Wasilla Bible Church in multiple places, including the entrances and exits, according to an ATF news release today.

Evidence that could help determine the type of accelerant that was recovered from the fire scene is being examined by the state crime lab. Results could be returned within two weeks.

On Friday Dec. 12, when the fire started five women were inside the 35,314 square-foot church on Nicola Ave. behind Burchell High School. Responders were dispatched at about 9:40 p.m. Friday. Temperatures were below zero. No one was injured. One woman said their vehicles were plainly visible near the main adult entrance where fire began.

In a separate article the Anchorage Daily Times reports that Wasilla Bible Church is home to several prominent Alaskans not that They have any idea what the Motive for the Crime is yet...

The church, just off the Parks Highway on the western edge of town, conducts Sunday services attracting up to 1,000 people. Church members include many well-known Valley residents, including Palin, Rep. Wes Keller, R-Wasilla, and Rep. Carl Gatto, R-Palmer.

Palin's ties to the church have sparked widespread speculation about whether the person who lit the fire was motivated by that connection. However, Central Mat-Su Fire Department Chief James Steele said that idea remains in the realm of pure speculation.

"At this point, there is no information that we have that even points in that direction," he said.

Read the Full Anchorage Daily Times Article Here

Sarah Palin must reflect the Positive unstoppable attitude of her home town as the members of the Wasilla Bible Church did not let this attack on their place of worship stop them from meeting this week as Alaskan NBC affliate KTUU is reporting...

KTUU reports
"After an arsonist ruined their church Friday night, members of the Wasilla Bible Church used their hope and faith to move forward."

Arson Supected in Fire At Sarah Palin's Church

Seriously? Now someone has set Fire to Sarah Palin's Church...

The Anchorage Daily News reported a suspicious fire at the Wasilla Bible Church, the home church of Governor Palin. It happened Friday night, while some ladies were making crafts in the basement there are some reports of children possibly being inside as well. And someone set Fire to the place... Police are not officialing saying that it is Arson at this point, but Church Pastor Larry Koone was quoted in the ADN as saying "The possibilities are so wide and variable," he said. "Someone intentionally did it, but we don't know who and why."

I don't know why either...but I have some ideas...

Sarah Palin is obviously thinking the same thing, her office released the following statement today....

"Gov. Palin stopped by the church this morning, and she told an assistant pastor that she apologizes if the incident is in any way connected to the undeserved negative attention the church has received since she became a vice presidential candidate on Aug. 29. Whatever the motives of the arsonist, the governor has faith in the scriptural passage that what was intended for evil will in some way be used for good."

I hope you are right Gov. Palin. I truly hope that this attack on your Church will be enough for thinking Americans to wake up from there cultural comas to see that Christians need to Defend our Rights before they are taken from us.

Oh and what about the fact this Fire took place on Friday night. I just heard about it a few minutes ago. Still waiting for it to be picked up by the National Media as a big story. My guess is, they'll "break" the news after Drudge or another Big Blog picks it up. As a fellow blogger pointed out, Can you imagine if someone had set Obama's Home Church of Trinity on Fire? What would the coverage look like then? And do you think they'd be so confused about the Motive?

Because KTUU in Alaska points out repeatedly, No Motives or Suspects? No Idea if it's even connected to Politics. The anchor in the 'news' segment below refers to Wasilla Bible Church as Sarah Palin's 'former church', but other reports have said her children had planned to attend services this weekend, while the Governor worked on the State Budget in Juneau. Sounds like her church to me.... Count how many times the Anchor asks the reporter to confirm that there are No suspects or Motives...

Yeah, I'm not a cop or a firefighter, so I'll stand back and see what the investigation determines, but they've already so much as admitted that it was Arson. So someone Intentionally set Fire to Sarah Palin's Church. Forget the Sarah Palin Part. Someone set Fire to a Church filled with at least five women, and I want to know who did it. My gut says Liberal Nutjob Group, but it could be anyone. I'm just wondering how many Church Burnings were in Wasilla prior to Sarah Palin's selection to ride Shotgun on the GOP Ticket?

Who ever is found to be responsible, I want them punished for one of those "hate crimes" the ACLU is always harping about. Politically motivated or Not this was still an Attack on a Christian place of Worship. It's time to start paying attention...before it's too late.

Update: The Ladies over at the Read My Lipstick Network provided the mailing address for the Wasilla Bible Church if you'd like to send a donation or a card of support.

Send it here:

Wasilla Bible Church
1651 W. Nicola Avenue

Washington Post Finally ran a story in Today's edition.

Fox News filed a report today as well....

CBS News: "Chief: Gov. Palin's Home Church Damaged by Arson"

Before they Were Viral: 12 Days of Obama

Liberals like to claim ownership of everything "Creative", and that includes Comedy. Just like everything else Liberals "claim" the Liberal myth that Conservatives are rigid and humorless is patently False. So I've decided to share some of the videos that I've come across recently that literally made me laugh out loud including a new twist on the Christmas Classic, 12 Days of Christmas. You let me know, but I think some of these are deserving of going Viral....

Hey Crazy Liberals! This video was put on youtube during the campaign season and is set to the tune of the song "Hey there Delilah", yet I never saw it until this week. Warning: After viewing you will find yourself humming and smiling for days!

The second on my list came via Gateway Pundit. The Bluebloggers or Liberal blogggers are kind of known for their crazy violent Screeds against Republicans and especially George W. Bush, but this week John Gibson highlighted that they are just as insane in Defense as they become when on the Attack! This video was put together around an audio segment of John Gibson's radio show, featuring Dramatic interpretations of Liberal Blog Entries in response the the "Obama-Blago" Scandal. Enjoy!

You can't make that stuff up!

If you still haven't finished up all your Christmas shopping the next video delivers the perfect for that Obamamaniac on your list. If you've got the cash and the stomach for it, Barack Obama's senate seat is On Sale Now, while supplies last...

And just in time for the Christmas season, the 12 Days of Obama. This is sure to be a favorite for Conservatives, as we remind our Liberal friends that elections have consequences. And this is What Obama plans to give all Americans for Christmas in the years to come...

Merry Christmas!!

Let me know what you think in the comments section, or share another video of your own!

Is Global Warming the Cause of Terrorism?

Considering how spoiled and sanctimonious Liberals are is it really any wonder Terrorists from all over the world want us dead? It all comes down to Maslow's Hierarchy...

Think about it, those that are trying to Kill Us are still struggling to meet their basic needs, while Americas biggest "crisis" according the OLM is childhood obesity, global warming and Same-Sex marriage. They must have loved "A Day without Gays" (or as it's know in Iran, Everyday) Now they are going to hear either by word of mouth or that complimentary subsciption to the New York Times, that some American have decided to eliminate a Food Source in the name of ""Global Warming".

They think we are over indulged brats who don't deserve to live. They might be right about some of Us. Currently the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is floating the idea about a Federal Tax on Cow Farts. You read that correctly, Cow Farts. This tax would punish those who owned Cows, you know the people who provide us with Beef and Milk, for their Cow's natural bodily function of "passing gas" or as they call it "methane emissions" because they claim it causes... global warming.

In reality the Tax will do nothing to stop the Cows from exhibiiting their flatulent behaviour, so there is NO benefit to the environment, but it will put Small Farms out of business.

As reports:

The EPA has floated the idea of taxing farmers for each of their cows.

Hanehan estimates it would cost about $175 per cow, per year. He milks 1,300 cows.

"It would probably be around $230,000 per year for our dairies," Hanehan said. "You can figure that that's pretty much going to wipe us out

Name someone Other than a Liberal that would think this is a good idea? No One, but the Guy in the cave doesn't know that most Americans think the idea of Taxing Cow bodily functions is insane, they think we're all that Stupid. And we're doing it in the name of the Greatest threat facing America...."Global Warming".

Al Gore's Money maker has got to be comedy gold in the Middle East where 110 feels a little chilly. Can you imagine how insulted they were to find out that some Americans are more concerned about "Global Warming" in the 2008 exit polls then were concerned about Terrorism?

It is somehow appropriate that the EPA would rear it's ugly head Today, the day after the House (including 32 Republicans) Voted for Socialism in the form of the GM/Chrysler Bailout. As much blame that is laid at the feet of the UAW, an equal amount should be dumped on the EPA. Environmental regulations on the Cars and of course how they are made, has played a role in the destruction of the Free Market in Detroit. The EPA forced Auto makers to go against the Golden Rule of "Supply and Demand". The EPA required Auto makers to create Cars for which there is limited if any Demand. Now they want to "clean up" the Farming Industry? No thank you. I like Food. Especially steak.

In spite of evidence that man made Global Warming is a Hoax and Junk Science they continue to worship follow the wisdom of the Gore-ical. It's also a Fact that the Earth has cooled in over the last Two years.

H/t Gatewaypundit

Global Warming Believers will tell you denying the existence of Global Warming is tantamount to refusing to acknowledge the Holocaust. I would tell them.... It's snowing today in Houston...

Liberals often cite that almost all the worlds problems can be traced back to "Global Warming", it's a bit like the six degrees of separation game. If I were playing by their insane rules, I think I just linked Terrorism to Global Warming in just one step, The EPA.

Swept up by The Christmas Spirit: The Nice List

It really is beginning to look a lot like Christmas! With President-elect Barack Obama's buddy, Illinois Governor, Rod Blagojevich, who in case you haven't heard also happens to be a Democrat, was arrested today on Federal Charges. Apparently he attempted to auction off The One's senate seat to the highest bidder. It looks like Blago will be joining Obama's Friend Tony Rezko behind bars this holiday season. Some have suggested the scope and depth of the Blago investigation could reach Rezko's real estate dealings.....Merry Christmas!! With Blago's pottymouth, he definitely belongs on the Naughty list I made yesterday, but there are plenty of people who found their way onto the Nice list....

Starting with my Current favorite member of Congress, United States Senator Richard Shelby, Republican from Alabama.

Senator Shelby had already made my Nice list earlier this year, when he and Senator Jim Bunning from Kentucky, called out the Financial Bailout by it's real name, Socialism. He has sealed the deal with his stance against the Big Three Bailout. For all those members of Congress that Voted for BailOut regardless of party, you can assume the position on the Other list.

The Next name on the good list is none other than El Rushbo, himself, Rush Limbaugh. The self proclaimed Father of Conservatism, has constantly given a voice to our movement while driving Liberals insane. Check out the "Harmless loveable little fuzzball"....

Rush is always Right, but he is particularly insightful on two issues in this piece. One is the way the Elite responded to Sarah Palin, assuming she was just a hick from Alaska. Notice how Babwa 'corrects' him, "She was uniformed!" This from a woman who has gotten all her information from a teleprompter for 30 years. The other issue that Ms. Walters wanted to use against Rush was the "aging woman" comment, which she portrayed as an attack on Hillary. Not so. I was listening to Rush the day that segment aired and it was an indictment on how Women are treated by the media and the public. You don't have to take my word for it, you can read the transcript and decide for yourself at Joinging Maha Rushi on the Nice list this year for being the Voices of Conservatism, are Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham and Mark Levine. Glen Beck just missed the cut this year, due to his prattling on about the Global Economic Collapse, and his perpetual promotion of "The Christmas Sweater". (Even if it is a really good book, which it is) I'm going to throw Ann Coulter into this section of the Nice list for delivering one of my favorite lines of the Election season, during the short time when John McCain surged in the Polls after announcing Palin for VP, Coulter was asked whether or not she liked Sarah Palin as the Pick, Coulter responded "I'm already planning the empeachment hearings!" For that she goes on my Nice list.

Which brings me to the next name on the Nice list this year, Governor Sarah Palin, Republican from the Great State of Alaska. Let's face it if you didn't know that Sarah was going to make My Nice list, you haven't been paying attention. Sarah is also known as The Reason Conservatives voted on November 4th. Without Governor Palin on the ticket, the base would have stayed home and McCain wouldn't even have had a chance against Obama. Sarah Palin is the Future of the Republican party, she is a strong, smart conservative with common sense, and it was obvious from the first time she was introduced to America that morning in Dayton, Ohio, Sarah Palin is the Real Thing. For bringing Positive Conservatism back to the forefront in the GOP, Sarah Palin has earned herself a spot on the Nice List. Governor Palin is accompanied on the Nice list this year, by two gentlemen from Lousiana, Republican Governor Bobby Jindal and newly elected Republican Representative for the House, Ang "Joseph" Cao . Jindal has been credited for his commitment to conservative fiscal and social ideals with great success in a state known for it's corruption. While Cao is new to the National scene his popularity in his district allowed him to defeat the incumbent, William "90 Grand in My Freezer" Jefferson in a delayed election just this week. Since the Voters of Lousiana gave victories to all of the above, they will also be added to the Nice List. In a suprise twist California voters made the Nice list for their vote to keep "Marriage" between a man and a woman, and of course, Georgia for saving us from a Rubber Stamp Congress. (Florida, you know what you did...)

We've had a some surprising entries to the Nice List this go round including the entire cast and crew of "An American Carol".

It takes a lot of guts to come out of the closet as a Republican in Hollywood. Hats off to those that got this movie made. By openly mocking the left with a Michael Moore-like character who has an Ebenzer Scrooge type of experience after he Protests for a Ban on the 4th of July, these guys lost their invitations to All the Cool Parties, instead they'll be invited to the Nice List.

Another less talked about movie, "Expelled" has earned it's entire cast and crew entry on the Nice List as well. In "Expelled", Ben Stein challenges the mother of all Liberal Holy Issues...Evolution. Or as the website discribes, "The freedom to legitimately challenge “Big Science’s” orthodoxy…without persecution." Good enough for me, Nice List all around!!

And this Nice List would not be complete if it didn't include the men and women who keep us all safe and free, the United States Military. Our Troops have bravely fought overseas to bring stability to Iraq, and are now creating bonds that will give us a strong Ally in the troubled region. But for each moment that a member of the Military is protecting you and I, they are away from someone they Love. Christmas time can be especially difficult for those with small children...but sometimes Little Girls get their Christmas Wish... (grab your kleenex, you've been warned...)

For the Troops that serve our Great Nation, there will always be a spot on the Nice List for you. This year you will be lead on the Nice List by your Commander in Cheif, President George W. Bush, the man who has kept us safe for seven years and has stayed the course towards Victory in Iraq. President Bush a man, Bob Geldof said "has done more than any other president so far.", in regards to Africa. Bush's unprescented committment to aid to Africa for Malaria, HIV/AIDS and business development had Geldof signing his praises in Rwanda earlier this year. Take a moment to read just that article and you will know why W. is on the Nice List.

Swept up by the Christmas Spirit, I've enjoyed creating the Nice List as a reminder of some of the good things happening out in the World. Sometimes we become so consumed by "The Naughty List", we forget to appreciate "The Nice List". This year, I'm trying not to do that.....Merry Christmas to all those who made The Nice List and to everyone else...There's always next year!

It's that time of Year....Who has been Naughty?

Now that the Christmas lights are out of the attic, I'm starting to get into the Holiday spirit. I just found out I even have the official "Yule log" channel available 24 hours a day. With Christmas just weeks away, it's time for Santa to make his list and check it twice, while I have no idea who Mr. Claus puts on which list, I do have some suggestions for him...

Inspired by one of my favorite Christmas movies, Elf,

I've decided to divide the list into two Obvious Categories, Naughty and Nice. Since I'm a cynic by nature, we'll be starting with those that bear the shame of finding their name on the Naughty List.

The Senator from Countrywide, Christopher Dodd. The Man who brought us the "Greatest Economic Crisis of our Time" is now trying his hand at the Auto Industry. Dodd has not only been allowed to retain his position as head of the Senate Banking Committee, but Now he's on Television, giving his 'advice' on how it should be handled and how GM should move forward. The Audacity of Hypocrisy. Making the list under this category will be Barney Frank, Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, Harry Reid and the remainder of Congress that has run this country into the ground in just under 2 years. That fantastic effort has gotten you all a spot on the Naughty List.

Then there is This Guy:

Dan Barker, speaking on behalf of his group, Freedom From Relgion on Fox and Friends, refers to the "Baby who grew up to be a dictator" as one of his reasons for considering the Nativity , Hate Speech. He's the one who put the "Winter Solstice" sign up in Washington state. The one calling Religon a Myth. This guy is in need of some seriously counseling and has been deemed Naughty.

As if you didn't already know this one,Iranian President Ahmadinejad or A-jad,as I like to call him is not going to make the Nice list again this year.... While he was sure to make the list after his rousing speech at the United Nations where he called America the Great Satan. The Murderous psychopath sealed his fate this week, when he announced that the United States was most likely behind the gruesome Terror attacks in Mumbai.

Watch the entire interview here.

You can also add Al-Queda, Islamofacist Terrorists, Hugo Chavez, Vladimir Putin, Kim Jong Ill(or whomever is playing him) and the Castro brothers to the list of enemies of Freedom that will Never be on the Nice list.

Next up, for naughtiness is the Prop 8 Crazies. Those who are angry that Californians voted to keep Marriage between a Man and Woman, have lost their minds. From storming the churches in Michigan to boycotting and terrorizing Mormons in California and Nevada. The supporters of Prop 8 have crossed over into Zealot territory and are starting commit the "hate crimes" they claim to protest.

Now some of their well meaning supporters have put together a Video mocking Christianity and those that oppose Gay Marriage. I like to think of it as just another clip of people I'll never spend another dime to watch....

See more Jack Black videos at Funny or Die

I could devote an entire entry to my issues with the Irony of this Video's usage of Separation of Church and state. Since that is precisely what the Gay Marriage issue Violates. But either way this entire group of Prop 8 thugs find themselves on the Naughty list.

The Voters in Minnesota have also found themselves on the Naughty list this year, while the re-count continues because almost Half of you voted for Stuart Smalley. Apparently he appears on the ballot with his other name Al Franken, maybe that's what confused you. Seriously, were you so swept up with Bush Derangement Syndrome that you actually voted for Al Franken or was it as he contends that you were just too stupid to know any better? Minnesota will be joined by Pennsylvania, Virginia and Ohio the Coal producing states that went Blue this year, but will cry when Obama's Green plan kills their economies.

And finally rounding out the List is the United Auto Workers Union. Not only have they managed to finally snuff out the last of the Big Three American Auto companies with their strong armed tactics, designed to grow the Union not help the Union worker. Now they are trying to make us feel guilty for not wanting to hand over our hard earned Money to them in the form of "Government BailOuts"...The Government has No Money, it's all Taxpayer Money. And this little screw up in Detroit is going to cost us all, but the UAW doesn't want you to think about how it's going to affect Your future....It's all about them.

Or as ALLAPUNDIT at Hot Air put it "New UAW ad: You people aren’t going to put us out of work, are you?"

You can add to this section of the Naughty list the NEA, that continues to support failure in the classroom,while demanding better pay, Wal-Mart haters and anyone who has ever utter the words "Corporate Greed". Silly, redundant term, they are businesses' not Non-profit organizations, They are supposed to be interested in Making money.

This is in no way a complete list of all those that belong on the Naughty List, but it does give a fair representation of what Santa is up against.

But as Buddy the Elf teaches us "there is room on the Nice list for everyone" and tomorrow I'll tell you who has earned a spot on that list this year....

New Poll McCain Voters and Fox News Viewers Most Informed

John Ziegler is at it again. The man who brought us the ten minute video "How Obama got elected" featuring 12 Obama Voters that were misinformed by the MSM, and subsequently was viewed by over 1.6 Million people on Youtube. Due to the overwhelming response and the Public Outcry from the Obama followers, Zeigler has run another poll, this time asking questions of both McCain and Obama supporters. The results confirmed what most of us already knew, McCain Voters were significantly more informed than Obama Voters. But the poll is not designed to make Obama voters look stupid, the purpose was to be an Indictment of the Media for their Negligence in informing the Public. The second study also offered some interesting results about Where the informed get their Information.
Those “exposed” to Fox News voted 70-29 for McCain.

Those “exposed” to CNN voted 63-37 for Obama.

Those “exposed” to MSNBC voted 73-26 for Obama.

Those “exposed” to network newscasts voted 62-37 for Obama.

Those “exposed” to national newspapers voted 64-36 for Obama.

Those “exposed” to talk radio voted 61-38 for McCain.
Ziegler was on Hannity Colmes earlier this week:

Some of the highlights:
35 % of McCain voters got 10 or more of 13 questions correct.

18% of Obama voters got 10 or more of 13 questions correct.

McCain voters knew which party controls congress by a 63-27 margin.

Obama voters got the “congressional control” question wrong by 43-41.

Those that got "congressional control" correct voted 56-43 for McCain.

Those that got "congressional control" wrong voted 65-35 for Obama.
One of the other more interesting tidbits from this survey is that only 48% of CNN Viewers surveyed got the "congressional control" question correct. They had a 50-50 chance just by guessing. Yet, CNN is still considered a viable source of "news" by some Americans.

Maybe Ziegler's effort will change that.

What is Wrong with Pennsylvania?

What is wrong with Pennsylvania? First they re-elect Governor Ed Rendell, over Pittsburgh Steelers legend, HOF and Super Bowl MVP Lynn Swann. While there are other much more valid reasons to Vote for 'Swanni', that should have been a good enough reason for at least Half the State. Yes, Western Pennsylvania I'm talking to you.

The same people who re-elected John "Marines are cold blooded murders" Murtha, You traded your PORK, for your souls with his victory. I would love to hear from just ONE person why they cast a Vote for Murtha. Was it because he accused our troops of War Crimes? Or because he called you a Racist that finally convinced you that He was Your Candidate? Maybe it was the over $300,000 in ads dumped into the campaign two weeks prior to the election that was funded by his democratic buddies that pushed you over the edge....Whatever the case, PA's 12th District, you should be ashamed of yourselves. But you are not alone, it took a consorted effort by the entire state to elect the man who called you "Bitter...clinging to YOUR guns and Religion".

Obama mocked you to his liberal donors out in San Fransisco. He mentioned Pennsylvainians by Name. Yet the majority of you still Voted for him. Even when it was found out just days before the election that Obama planned to fine the Coal companies out of business, which would elimate a huge number of Jobs in Pennsylvania, still you Voted for him. That doesn't even make sense. And you can't just blame Philly, although it's tempting.

Tell me something Pennsylvania when will you learn? Murtha's back, Obama's President and we have you to Thank for it. Now your Governor, Fast Eddie Rendell is at it again. This time caught being his sexist self on video tape. Apparently Fast Eddie thinks only Childless women should hold powerful office. CNN's Cambell Brown in a rare moment of clarity in the segment, takes to task the Governor's idea that Janet Napalatanio's "perfect" because she has "No Life"

As you watch him speak his mind, remember this man is a Prominent Democrat. The Party of what exactly again? Enjoy!

For once I agree with Cambell Brown, write that down. But when has a Man's children ever entered the conversation about qualifications? Never. But Fast Eddie's kind of known for his prejudices... In February of this year, when he was supporting a Woman with a Grown Child and absent husband, I'm assuming that qualifies Hillary in his mind. Rendell insinuated PA was too Racist to Vote for Obama in the General so they should vote for Hillary in the Primary. Well at least we found something he and Murtha have in common, they both think their constiutients are Racist. He gave this "Racist reasoning" for his Victory over Lynn Swann....

As Allahpundit reported back in February at
, here's a quote from a Pittsburgh Post Gazette article....

“You’ve got conservative whites here, and I think there are some whites who are probably not ready to vote for an African-American candidate,” he said bluntly. Our eyes only met briefly, perhaps because the governor wanted to spare the only black guy in the room from feeling self-conscious for backing an obvious loser. “I believe, looking at the returns in my election, that had Lynn Swann [2006 Republican gubernatorial candidate] been the identical candidate that he was –well-spoken [note: Mr. Rendell did not call the brother "articulate"], charismatic, good-looking — but white instead of black, instead of winning by 22 points, I would have won by 17 or so.”

That is your Governor, Pennsylvania. Nice work. Well, since Fast Eddie has reached his two term limit as Governor, now he's considering a run at the Senate. I bet Rendell was jealous of Michael Bloomberg route of just extending the term limits to the office, probably wishes he had thought of it first. Lord knows the people of PA would surely elect him again...

Updated: Looks like those in the Keystone state will have another excellent choice in 2010. MSNBC "Host" and Moonbat king, Chris Matthews. Turns out that tingle that Obama caused to run up his leg ignited a desire to Run for Senate. In where else, Pennsylvania. I'm telling you if PA elects this guy.....

Chris Matthews, Frat Boy

Chris Matthews, the Foul Mouth

As I was saying...if PA elects Chris Matthews, I'm going to start telling people I'm from Texas. (Maybe Georgia....)

We're Bringing Saxby Back!!

With the AP now reporting a Saxby Chambliss victory in the US Senate Run off race in GA, we can all breathe a sigh of relief. We've held off a 60 Seat Democrat Super Majority, meaning we can still throw a few road bumps in the way of Socialism with a big "S" when we need to. It's not great, but it's a start.

One other bright spot in this Chambliss Victory, is that we got to see Sarah Palin again, as she did a four stop tour of the State yesterday. Polls had Chambliss up by 7 points late last week, tonights early numbers have his margin of Victory at around 18%, Think it might have had something to do with this?

You know Sarah's a Rock star when even the AP calls her Chambliss' "closer". What would you expect from the Woman that Joe Biden said he wanted to hang out with so the Press would notice him. Her positive Conservative message is still resonating with not all is lost. Although some are wondering what it means for Obama....and wondering if the outcome would have been different if The One had come on down to Georgia, himself.

We have to start preparing now for 2010. Check out your local senate races, see where we can make some progress, find a good candidate to support and Do it. In the meanwhile as I've said countless times, Stay in touch with your representatives in Congress, remind them as often as necessary who writes their paycheck. Those remaining members of Congress with "R"'s beside their name will really need our support now. Remember that the phone calls and e-mails from consitiuients is what stopped the first Bailout Package. Never underestimate the desire for Politicians to get re-elected.

Having said that, tonight I will sleep just a little easier knowing that the Congress can't just rubber stamp every liberal policy Obama throws out. We still have a small form of checks and balance. Thank you Georgia! America should be thanking you as well! Thanks to Sarah Palin and the Voters in the great state of Georgia, We're Bringing Saxby Back!

Why You Should Know Who Samantha Powers is....

All the headlines are screaming "Hillary Clinton Secretary of State", like that is the real story of the day. In truth that was last week's story and they leaked it in my opinion to see how everybody would react. The real story isn't the assumed nomination of Mrs. Clinton, but instead the 'woman' who will be guiding the New Secretary of State, Samantha Powers.

If you just thought who is Samantha Powers, you are not alone. Until recently I didn't know who she was either. It's partially because her name surfaced briefly in the primaries just after Super Tuesday, a time when most Conservatives had stopped paying attention. 'Ms.' Powers was named an early foreign policy advisor to Barack Obama's campaign, something that got the Jews attention but was largely ignored by the OLM. That was until Powers gave an interview with The Scotsman where she called Hil a "Monster" and get this..."unattractive". At that point she immediately assumed the position under the Bus and resigned, as the Obama express rolled over her on the way to the White House. She was out of the public spotlight long before the General Election.

With Obama naming Samantha Powers to his Transition Team, America should be taking a closer look at the person who will act as a Liaison between Secretary of State Clinton, and President Obama. ( editor's note: I'm going to have to practice saying both of those, because writing it just now made me a little ill.) Anyway, Who is Samantha Powers and why is Obama so fond of her?

Prior to going to work for Obama in 2005, Powers was a Professor at Harvard who was best known for her Pulitzer Prize winning book, "A Problem from Hell", which according to was less "finger pointing".....

Earlier working titles apparently included The Guilty Bystander and Again and Again: Fifty Years of Genocide and American Bystanderhood, but it was presumably determined that these hit too close to home and so the benign, non-finger pointing title won out

According to the review, "It's an America Bashing Book" but that doesn't appear to deter the reviewer's enjoyment of the book.

For some it heightened the Importance of the book...

"Power's critique of American policy is devastating and fully substantiated by the evidence she brings to bear." - Warren I. Cohen, Times Literary Supplement

It's not surprising that Liberals would enjoy a book criticizing America. What was shocking was when I found out that "Problem from Hell" seemed a little too Anti-American for one L.A.Times Reviewer...

"Power seeks to show that American policymakers have knowingly turned a blind eye to massacres. In her view, the United States' policy of nonintervention in the face of genocide has not been a failure but precisely what diplomats wanted." - Jacob Heilbrun, The Los Angeles Times

I haven't actually read the entire book myself, but if the LA Times can see through Powers attempt to veil her Hatred for America in this book supposedly about "genocide" it must be spelled out in Capital Letters. (Twice)

Guess how Powers met Obama? Wait for it...according to an interview with, Obama contacted Powers after reading her book!! What was the other book Obama was reading on the campaign trail....(The Post American World)

"He had just read "A Problem From Hell" and wanted to meet to discuss fixing American foreign policy. I thought, "Well that's interesting -- clearly he's in some other league."

"In some other league", Well that's one way to look at it. If Obama's reading list is any indication, America's going to "Change" alright......By the end of their first meeting, Powers had agreed to quit her job at Harvard to go to work for Senator Obama.

But Wait! There's More! The reason the Jews paid attention when Obama named her as an advisor in the Primaries, is because she has openly criticized Americas relationship with Israel, suggesting we should take a more "even handed approach" to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, like not supporting Israel and backing the Palestinians as she does in this video from April of 2002

Ed Morrisey posted this at today....

This should give us some insight into the foreign-policy objectives of Barack Obama, who had Power as an adviser from 2005 until the “monster” comment in March of this year. He didn’t bounce her from his team over her views on Israel and … well, let’s recall how she described the pro-Israel lobby:

Putting something on the line might mean alienating a domestic constituency of tremendous political and financial import.

For those who may not catch the reference, Power means the Joooooos. And why would that alienate the Jewishcabalthatsecretlyrunseverything? For one thing, Power wants to spend billions on bolstering Palestinian military strength, instead of spending it on helping the Israelis to defend themselves. Bear in mind that this interview takes place about seven months after 9/11, when people supposedly still knew how dangerous radical Islamist groups like Hamas and al-Qaeda were. Power wanted to send them money and stop funding Israeli efforts to fight them.

Just when you thought it couldn't get worse Powers is an advocate for Negotiations with Iran without Pre-conditions. In January, she wrote an opinion piece for Time entitled "Rethinking Iran" where she dismisses the incident between a US Naval Ship and five Iranian speed boats as a scare tactic, not by the Iranians of who else...George W. Bush.

The war scare that wasn't stands as a metaphor for the incoherence of our policy toward Iran: the Bush Administration attempts to gin up international outrage by making a claim of imminent danger, only to be met with international eye rolling when the claim is disproved. Sound familiar? The speedboat episode bore an uncanny resemblance to the Administration's allegations about the advanced state of Iran's weapons program--allegations refuted in December by the National Intelligence Estimate.

And now The One has selected Samantha Powers to Advise the State Department....Does this sound like a good idea to any thinking person?

It certainly didn't sound good to this blogger at JBlog Central, The Jewish and Israeli Blog network:

The messiah-elect got rid of Power so that he wouldn’t lose the Jewish vote.Now that he got the Jewish vote, she’s back in.......To all Jews who voted for Barack Hussein Obama, may the blood of your brethren be on...

Obviously The One hasn't strayed too far from his Far Left Roots, I'm starting to think the Hillary and the other Clinton retreads are merely a cover, a figure head if you will for him to operate his Radical agenda through his hand picked "Liaisons" that Do Not Have to go through the confirmation process. For the sake of ourselves and Israel we cannot afford to stop paying attention even for a second. Samantha Powers is proof of that.

Is that a Murderer on your T-shirt? The Truth about Che Guevara

Stalin was Right. America is full of "Useful Idiots". The latest example of Liberals love affair with Communist Ideal...Where else? Central Park. It is being widely reported on the Web, and of course completely ignored by the OLM, that a statue has been erected in Central Park honoring cold blooded murderer Ernesto "Che" Guevara.

In his column, Visiting Che Guevara in Central Park, Jack Kemp wrote, "I read in AT that a statue of bloodthirsty revolutionary Che Guevara has appeared in Central Park, so I went to 5th Ave. & 60th street to see it for myself." I feel you, Jack, it truly is something you would have to see with your own eyes. In fact I waited to publish this blog until I was able to get confirmation from the reports over the weekend. I just couldn't believe that Anyone would want a statue honoring, Cuba's Communist Dictator, Fidel Castro's personal killing machine. I don't know why I'm surprised. My husband says I give people too much credit, that I'm always hoping they are 'better' than they turn out to be. Maybe he's right.

It's not like this is the first time the Liberals on the left have glorified this psychopath, they've been walking around with his Face on their dirty t-shirts for years, much to the dismay of Cuban Americans everywhere. In 2005, the Seattle Times did a story about the growing outrage from Cuban Americans over the continued marketing of Che t-shirts and trinkets. Who doesn't want a mass murder's picture on their Cup filled with overpriced Coffee? It's Seattle.

A Less Truthful version of the following image is what is considered "Trendy" amongst College Students and other mush minded individuals...

From The Seattle Times :
Increasingly, when young Latinos wear his image, older Cuban Americans are offended — to the point of shouting matches that threaten to erupt into fistfights.

One recent afternoon, 73-year-old Carlos Barberia was waiting for a bus in Union City, N.J., when he spotted a Guevara T-shirt on a sidewalk rack. He bought the shirt — and promptly set it on fire with a burning newspaper.

"Che Guevara killed my father," he told a police officer, explaining his outburst. "He had my father shot by a firing squad in Cuba."

The officer turned out to be Cuban American, too. "He told me, 'I have not seen anything' and he walked away," Barberia said.

From another Cuban American who writes at Sunrise in Havana,

Every time I see a teenager with Che Guevara's picture plastered on a T-shirt I feel sad. I wonder if they even know who this man really was.

During the first years of the Castro regime, Che was the head executioner. He is also responsible for founding the work camps, where the opposition were sent, including my father, who did nothing against the communist regime.

I have to tell you the Che T-shirt phenomenon is something that really gets under my skin, in fact one of the first groups I joined on Facebook was the "Che Guevara is a Murderer and Your T-shirt is Not Cool". Maybe not the catchiest of titles but effective and too the point. Thankfully I am not alone in my desire to openly mock Che t-shirt wearers. Which gives me some solace, but as Jay Nordlinger at National Review online points out, "The world is awash in Che paraphernalia, and this is an ongoing offense to truth, reason, and justice (a fine trio). "

Yet with all the evidence of his Barbaric behavior, Time Magazine still named Ernesto 'Che' Guevarra to their 100 Heroes and Icons list in June of 1999. Again we shouldn't be surprised, Time also featured him on the cover in 1960. They are just one of many OLM news outlets that have been accused of supporting Castro's dictatorship by Cuban exiles over the years.

In 2004 the film "The Motorcycle Diaries" was released to a flurry of praise by all those on the left. Supposedly a story of pre-Revolution Che. The Romantic beginnings that all the Liberals love....the story doesn't go in his later "Violent years" But does clarify one thing, Che was never poor. He was as most Liberals are Upper Middle Class. In one of the Most accurate Movie Reviews ever a reader known only as Zane wrote "It is as if someone were to make a film about Adolf Hitler by portraying him as a vegetarian who loved animals and was against unemployment. This would be true, but would be rather beside the point.Guevara was a violent, oppressive man. 'The Motorcycle Diaries' is the epitome of my generations pretentiousness." Couldn't have said it better myself.

For those of you who are unfamiliar with Che Guevara, he was supposedly a doctor in Mexico when he met up with Castro Brothers. He became the third leg of the "Cuban Revolution". Guevara fought side by side with the Castros then took their Revolution to the people. It is estimated that Guevara is personally responsible for anywhere from 2000 to 150,000 Cuban Deaths. Notice the low number is 2000. This man was a viscous henchmen for Castro, his job was to put down any dissenters to "the cause", it was a position he relished. Guevara famously executed political prisoners without fair trial. You want to know the Truth about Che Guevara, take a few minutes and watch the following video. While it in no way covers all of the treachery of this man, it will give you a good idea of what he was Really like.

There are several books available if you are so inclined on the Real History of this assassin, one of which is Exposing Che Guevara. It was while looking at this book written by Humberto Fontova that I came across a review, and the reviewers thoughts seemed to capture my thoughts and convey them in a way, that I think even Liberals could understand....

Even though it's about
Che and Cuba, it means a lot to me as well--a
Chinese-American. Any book against one dictator is a
book against ALL dictators. I imagine you must feel
the same rage seeing a Che T-shirt as I do seeing a
Mao T-shirt. It bothers me that many people do not
think twice about wearing either T-shirt, but if
somebody wore a T-shirt with the visage of Hitler,
Stalin, bin Laden, or that Virginia Tech guy it'd be
all over the news.

Since "History" is now confined to our lifetime in this country, I thought it was a brilliant analogy to use the VA Tech shooter as an example. Something so tragic perpetrated by one individual that caused so much pain for so many. That is what the image of Che Guevara means to Cuban Americans and exiles, yet someone thought it was a good idea to put up a statue in Central Park.

How did my friend over at Sunrise in Havana react to the news...

I am so angry, my whole body is shaking!
