This is REALLY [Not] Funny [Anymore] – UPDATED

Buzzfeed is all agog over Obama’s secondhand campaign slogan.

But that’s not the funny part. If you can manage to read the entire post, you’ll find this gem:

According to the Obama campaign, the video will be played at President Obama’s first campaign rallies on Saturday.

First? I thought his first campaign rallies where the first week of his administration. After all, he’s held more fundraisers in his first (and hopefully only) term than the last five Presidents combined.

Yep, FIVE.

Can you hear me now?

UPDATE: Oh my, it gets even better. From the Washington Times

The Obama campaign apparently didn’t look backwards into history when selecting its new campaign slogan, “Forward” — a word with a long and rich association with European Marxism.

Many Communist and radical publications and entities throughout the 19th and 20th centuries had the name “Forward!” or its foreign cognates. Wikipedia has an entire section called “Forward (generic name of socialist publications).”

“The name Forward carries a special meaning in socialist political terminology. It has been frequently used as a name for socialist, communist and other left-wing newspapers and publications,” the online encyclopedia explains.

The slogan “Forward!” reflected the conviction of European Marxists and radicals that their movements reflected the march of history, which would move forward past capitalism and into socialism and communism.

UPDATE II: Honestly, folks, I couldn’t make this stuff up if I tried. Sing along with the Brown Shirts now…

Now it’s not so funny.

Dissent for me, but not for thee

Twitter has a problem. Conservative twitter accounts are being suspended “unexpectedly.” Self-proclaimed armies of liberals flag-spam legitimate accounts, simply for disagreeing with liberal dogma. It’s what all the cool kids do.

The latest victim is Chris Loesch, husband of Dana. Twitter evidently has no problems with the vicious attacks on Dana, but suspend Chris when he defends her.

Internet bullying is alive and well.

#freeChrisLoesch is trending worldwide. Too bad Twitter execs are asleep at the wheel. This would be a excellent opportunity to prove they are for free speech and on-line collaboration. A “teachable moment,” if you would.

Don’t hold your breath.

The New Normal

Well, The Hubster is safe and sound back from his trip. More about that in another post. And just in time.

Life will be getting back to The New Normal around here, whatever that may be.

In the meantime, here are the things that made me think today. Hopefully they will do the same for you.

The People’s Cube has a handy graphic for something we’ve all noticed, but have just been reluctant to point out, lest we get beat up by a crowd of friendly neighbors.

Time arithmetic is not a strong suit of liberals, especially those looking for a reason to blame past presidents for anything/everything.

More folks are spitting out the Kool-Aid. Here’s one that is most definitely, emphatically NSFW. In the meantime, the MSM continues to spread the unicorn butt sparkles.

I guess all that lukewarm press for Atlanta during the Eat Street Food Network challenge was good for something. Atlanta’s first permanent Food Truck Park opens tomorrow night.

Erick nails it. Obama is Woodrow Wilson reincarnated, but more socialist, if that is even possible.

This is just a given.

In the Atlantic archives, we hear a voice from 1932, warning about Hitler. Maybe this time people will listen.

Obama’s spending and the resulting new taxes proposed
will increase your tax burden by 11% if you make less than $200,000. NoHopeNoChange for you!

They grow up so fast. Why didn’t we do this?

I can see November from my house. Can you?

If I Wanted America to Fail…

…I wouldn’t change a thing.

This is the future we face. The choices we make in November will decide the fate of our nation.

Why So Quiet?

Well, for starters, I continue to struggle with our current state of affairs. There are all sorts of sayings and platitudes that people toss my way, but nothing seems to soothe my state of mind. My prayers feel empty and weak. And with hubby literally half a world away, my mood has turned very dark the last week or so.

Everyone knows the story of the Good Samaritan. But how many can relate to the fellow in the ditch? Wounded and bleeding, left for dead by the robbers who harmed him, watching all the supposed godly folks just walking right by. As if he was a streetlamp or a discarded candy wrapper (did they have candy wrappers back then?). Imagine the inner emotional damage he suffered, while his wounds throbbed and festered and those supposed pillars of faith disdained his plight.

Well, there you go. I’m the one in the ditch.

Please continue to pray for me and my family, if you feel so inclined.

Test of Fire

Via Gateway Pundit – a compelling ad from Catholics Called to Witness.

After, if Obama will purposely target Catholics, how long will it be before the rest of Christianity is in his sights?

What happens to the checks and balances…

…when there is no due diligence or foundational integrity in the process?

From Barbara at American Thinker:

How did this happen without any media coverage? Where’s Congress? Who is looking out for the American Election Process? Which bureaucratic agencies allowed our election process to sold to a foreign country? National Voter ID needed now more than ever, since there is a foreign company counting Americans votes.

Indeed. SCTYL acquires SOE Software, becoming the leading election software provider. SCTYL is headquartered in Barcelona, Spain.

No wonder Obama whispered to President Dmitri Medvedev that the election was in the bag and his DOJ seems so unconcerned about rampant voter fraud. Covert cheating worked so well last time, that he’s not even trying to hide the deception this time around.

When will America wake up and realize that not only is the fox wreaked havoc in the hen house, but he’s in the big house as well?

He is Risen

The President Presumes Too Much

Is there something in the water up at The White House?

First, The Won threatens lectures the SCOTUS to not strike down his pet project in socialism.

Thank heavens for the Fifth Circuit of Appeals, which promptly slapped Dear Leader with a homework assignment, which for such a lauded constitutional scholar should be child’s play. Unless one of his DOJ lackies handles the request. Or he is what John Hawkins (read the link) suggests. My money is on the latter.

But back to the erratic behavior…

He insults the neighbors.

He schools his lapdogs on how to report every word that spews from the executive pie-hole.

He noses through our trash and listens over the fence.

His front men are becoming less courteous and more contentious. Bad form for those sitting around in the highest office in the land.

But today, he stepped over a line. He compared himself to Jesus. Either he has finally succumbed to his delusions or he truly believes that the majority of Americans that still believe in God are dumber than dumb.


…what strikes the serious reader of the Gospels is that, given a spectrum with Jesus on one end and Pontius Pilate on the other, you, Mr. President, resemble the latter far more than the former.

But we’ll be about affording you copious time to repent after the first Tuesday in November.

Indeed. But I doubt such a devotee of Karl Marx would believe there was anything to repent of.

Random Sunday Randomness

As I returned from a week away, I found my life and subsequent mood was only sitting on the “Pause” button. I continue to wash adrift in this arbitrarily enforced purgatory, swinging between prayers for God’s vengeance on the wicked and rolling my eyes at the galactic three-ring circus of the rest of the world. Since the idiots in the state-run news are so much more entertaining in the short term, here’s a few shots that are sure to make you shake your head as well:

I wonder, does Justice Defector get to wear a Batsuit?

Smitty likes to make up words like I do: check out Erasism.

Althouse gets on her Mystery Science Theater 3000 during the ObamaCare SCOTUS arguments.

Allies, my hind-parts. Keep your friends close. Keep your enemies closer.

No media bias here. Move along, nothing to see.

The founder of TaxCheatStamps is “surprising” audited by the IRS. Insert your best Gomer Pyle impersonation here. (h/t Insty)

Bread and circuses.

Heh. Imagine that. A ring that doesn’t look like a big eraser.

Aside: For those lazy clickers out there (and that means YOU, Obi), clicking the links above take you to other stories written for your edification.
