Barack Obama Presidential Facts–Hashtag Alert

Tuesday, March 20th, 2012


If Mr. Obama is the smartest person in the room, then he must be by himself, and the room must be very small. How he could fit himself and his ego in this room is unknown.

President Barack Obama walked into an unnecessary controversy when he decided to take on former Republican President Rutherford B. Hayes. President Hayes, who has been deceased for approximately 120 years, was not available for comment.


Deport all feminists to Iran and Syria

Monday, March 19th, 2012

Deport all feminists to Iran and Syria.

There is no more reasoning with these zealots.

They are not interested in equality. They are interested in advancing a political agenda, and to hell with everyone standing in their way.

Well I say to hell with them.

Just deport them to Iran and Syria and be done with this.

The “war on women” is a complete and utter myth. It is an election year weapon of mass distraction to take away from the fact that Barack Obama is a failed president. The economy is a mess, people are out of work, food and gasoline prices are skyrocketing, and the world is engulfed in a global conflagration.

What are feminists clamoring for?

Birth control subsidized by others.

In short, they want free stuff. This is the essence of liberalism. Give me free stuff.

The fact that it is birth control and not fee I-Pads is totally irrelevant. It is all about free stuff.

Sorry to disappoint the femizealots, but their right to freedom ends when it encroaches on mine. They are not required to pay for my sexually medically necessary items such as candles and Marvin Gaye and Barry White cds. I am not paying for their birth control. For ladies who complain (feminists) about men getting free viagra, that is wrong as well. The only difference is men are not going on television and claiming that this is the defining issue of our time.

Radical feminists have no idea how good they have it in this country. They should live in Iran or Syria for a few weeks and then they would come home and kiss the American ground.

This is not about birth control. It is about feminists needing to complain about something to maintain the illusion of relevance. It’s too late. American feminists are the Chevy Volt of citizens. They’re defective. Subsidizing them will not help.

This is about more than birth control for me. It is about peace and quiet and the right to get through a day without their complaining.

Everybody knows this is a manufactured election issue.

By sending feminists to Iran and Syria, it could also help us win the War on Terror. After all, maybe Assad and Ahmadinejad would surrender after a few days of listening to these modern women yammer. Perhaps the women would just be shot, but maybe they really could talk the dictators to death. It would be fun to watch.

Iran is trying to blow up the world, and Syria is murdering its own citizens. It’s high time the radical feminists in this country start caring about the world around them rather than focus on their own selfish, liberal agenda.

Live your lives. Pay for it yourselves. Do it quietly.

Everybody else does this. It’s time for equality. It’s time for feminists to do this as well.

If not, Damascus and Tehran are waiting with open arms for their seldom closed yammering mouths.

A day to raise a glass to our Irish friends

Saturday, March 17th, 2012

To all who are connected in any way to the Republic of Ireland, a Happy St. Patrick’s Day to you.

One does not have to have any lineage or emotional connection to Irish Americans to appreciate them.

Today is their day, and my bright green shirt is ready to go.

The stereotype of the Irish is that they are drunken brawlers, as if no other culture enjoys alcohol or fighting. Yet to me, when I think of the Irish, three images come to mind.

1) Hard work–The Irish helped build America. Despite signs that said, “Irish need not apply,” they did apply. They applied themselves, got past the bigotry, and helped make America the nation it is today.

2) Commitment to family–We hear about “clans,” but a clan is just a tightly connected family. The Irish are devoted to their kin and their kin’s kin.

3) Love of America–Some people come to America and lose their own culture and heritage. Others bring their culture and heritage to America yet refuse to embrace the melting pot. The Irish assimilated while maintaining themselves. They wax poetic about the “Old Country,” and they mean it. Yet they also love this new country, this shining city on a hill. Those marching in St. Patrick’s Day parades are honoring where they came from and their pride in where they are now.

While John F. Kennedy might be the most famous Irish President, half of our American presidents have some Irish ancestry. In fact, Gerald Ford was the last non-Irishman to lead America, as the rest since have been Irish.

(One odd note: Bill Clinton claims Irish ancestry, but no actual evidence of this has surfaced.)

Perhaps the Irish do not settle for second best, but despite having 22 of 44 presidents, there had never been an Irish-American Vice President until now. Joe Biden is the very first one.

When people think of the Irish, they automatically think of Catholics. Yet Ireland has Protestants, and even 2,000 Jews (down from a peak of 5,000). There are four Synagogues in Ireland, three in Dublin.

Tonight I will be joining my close friend and his wife for a dinner of Corned Beef and Cabbage. I wondered why we were eating this given that we were Jewish, and not Irish. He informed me his wife actually does have Irish heritage. We have been friends for years. Who knew?

So to all these great people among us, I say we raise a glass to our Irish friends.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!


The other war against women

Friday, March 16th, 2012

Over the last few weeks, the American people have been bombarded with allegations that there was a “War against women” occurring in the United States.

This war on women is apparently the defining issue of our lifetimes. The fact that this issue became paramount at the exact same moment that a liberal presidency is on the verge of collapse is purely coincidental.

Rather than dismiss the National Organization for Women and other feminists as hysterical hypocrites, the honorable thing to do was research whether or not this war on women real or fictional. It took only moments to confirm that the war on women is a global problem.

The feminist mistake has now become an entire ideology of Marie Antoinette’s. The difference is instead of “let them eat cake,” it is “let them get beaten and raped.” Like Miss Antoinette, the Middle Eastern women have a death squad waiting for them. The difference is the guillotine would be a relief from the torture most of these women face before their slow, painful deaths.

So for those in the feminist movement who are so distraught over the mythical war on women in the United States, spend a week in Syria or Saudi Arabia. Then come back here and kiss the feet of every conservative Republican male willing to save them from life under the Caliphate.

Oh, and for all of those liberal males who watched Phil Donahue and think that liberal women respect you…they don’t. They think you are a bunch of momma’s boys who need to grow a pair. Feminized men are so disgusting that even feminists can’t tolerate them.

So to those who know what is best for liberal women more than they ever will, thank you for being you. Now go blow up Iran and Syria and free those women from their bloodthirsty dictator captors. Unlike the leftist rich white women in America who will forever complain about nonsense, the Middle Eastern women will be grateful. After all, they are real women dealing with real women’s issues. Real men understand this.
