Nobody Gets Email From Rush

Nobody's EMail:

This is me smiling...(Who says dogs don't smile?) because I got this e-mail from my very liberal friend, J.R., who sent THIS really great piece spoken by the man he absolutely abhors! Rush Limbaugh!


It's a good day when a liberal sees the light, even if it's only lights up a few neurons behind his ears, don't you think!

So, here it is...

Loathe him (and I do -jR) or love him he nailed this one right on the head...........

By Rush Limbaugh:

I think the vast differences in compensation between victims of the September 11 casualty and those who die serving our country in Uniform are profound. No one is really talking about it either, because you just don 't criticize anything having to do with September 11. Well, I can ' t let the numbers pass by because it says something really disturbing about the entitlement mentality of this country.

If you lost a family member in the September 11 attack, you' re
going to get an average of $1,185,000. The range is a minimum guarantee of
$250,000, all the way up to $4.7 million.

If you are a surviving family member of an American soldier killed in action,
the first check you get is a $6,000 direct death benefit, half of which is taxable.

Next, you get $1,750 for burial costs. If you are the surviving spouse, you get
$833 a month until you remarry. And there ' s a payment of $211 per month for each child under 18. When the child hits 18, those payments come to a
screeching halt.

Keep in mind that some of the people who are getting an average of $1.185 million up to $4.7 million are complaining that it ' s not enough. Their deaths were tragic, but for most, they were simply in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Soldiers put themselves in harms way FOR ALL OF US, and they and their families know the dangers. (Actually, soldiers are put in harms way by politicians and commanding

We also learned over the weekend that some of the victims from the Oklahoma City bombing have started an organization asking for the same deal that the September 11 families
are getting.. In addition to that, some of the families of those bombed in the
embassies are now asking for compensation as well.

You see where this is going, don 't you? Folks, this is part and parcel of over 50 years of entitlement politics in this country. It' s just really sad. Every time a pay raise comes up for the military, they usually receive next to nothing of a raise. Now the green machine is in combat in the Middle East while their families have to survive on food stamps and live in low-rent housing.

Make sense?

However, our own US Congress voted themselves a raise. Many of you don' t know that they only have to be in Congress one time to receive a pension that is more than $15,000 per month. And most are now equal to being millionaires plus. They do not receive Social Security on retirement because they didn' t have to pay into the system.. If some of the military people stay in for 20 years and get out as an E-7, they may receive a pension of $1,000 per month, and the very people who placed them in harm' s way receives a pension of $15,000 per month.

I would like to see our elected officials pick up a weapon and join ranks before they start cutting out benefits and lowering pay for our sons and daughters who are now fighting.

"When do we finally do something about this?" If this doesn' t seem fair to you, it is time to forward this to as many people as you can.

How many people CAN YOU send this to?

How many WILL YOU???


Yeah, it's great. And it's about right too. And so when they cut "military" costs, you can bet it won't be the pilots jetting around all the senators and their families on Military planes.

But WE are asked to send care packages to the boys....

Anyway, thanks JR...there is hope for you yet.

This House is Clean....

Nobody Reports:

Zelda Rubinstein, died yesterday.

If ever there was anyone that could make us truly believe in ghosts, it was her. Her performance in Poltergeist should have won her an Oscar.

She had a spirit that shone as big as a redwood tree..and thanks to Steven Spielberg for letting us all see it.

A real original. A tiny package, with a big heart, and a great actress, and a wonderful voice. A fighter for aids...which costs her many a part so it is said.

I will, miss her--- simply because she reminded me of my own mother, who, when she died was exactly the same size....

Another angel, gone, and don't we take them all for granted.


Solar Panel Ice Rink Trumps NASA

Nobody's Absurdities, No. 80
Solar Panel Ice Rinks Trumps NASA
I woke up this morning to hear the news that America's plans to get back to the moon have been...trashed.
This "Oh, we're SO sorry we have been so superior in getting to the moon first, and you know, so advanced in technology, and we Americans have always been the first in science and engineering helping the WHOLE GODDAMN PLANET with our inventions...that Obama feels really bad that the rest of the world just is just not feeling good about it, psychologically.
"Not fair! You guys always win!"
Okay, says Obama. We'll just let you guys do it all. If we have to go to space, we will let the Russia and China put up our satellites, and our companies can take over. You know, AT&T, or Microsoft, or GE...those companies which our government owns half of anyway, at least this way, any fortunes made out of space can be put in OUR pockets! You know, it will go into that OTHER book we keep off the records....
The public sees the "OH we are TRILLIONS in debt...we need MORE money!" Instead of the book that shows, "Hey, we made over 165 trillion last year, let's not let the people find out!" book.
Yes, that one.
As Machu Picchu explained it this morning on FOX, this is like just cutting off your right arm. The nine-billion dollars that have been already spent trying to catch us up to Russia's rocket capabilities, have just been wasted.
In the meantime, we can spend billions of dollars putting Russian nuclear scientist on permanent payrolls dismantling their nukes, (You didn't think the Russians actually paid for that did you?) Yes, we will be giving hundreds of Russians big paychecks until they retire because..well, they will have no jobs to go to after they lose their jobs. I'm sure that even includes yearly vacations to DisneyWorld.
Not to mention, who paid for that international space station?
In the meantime, it seems the stimulus money is going to go to such wonderful and important things like--- exploring fossils in Brazil.
Right. That's a good one. The University of Chicago (Michelle and Obama's Alma) is getting lots of money to explore fossils too. Maybe they are going to dig up Hoffa's bones and he is going to be moved to the Capitol, and given a monument next to Mao.
But here's my personal favorite:
In my local paper I just discovered that a nearby neighborhood, Florissant, Missouri, a suburb of North St. Louis, basically a minority area, filled with black citizens who have public pools that are not over 4 feet because they can't swim...and now, they will be getting an $450,000 Federal stimulus grant for a solar panel roof at an ICE RINK, which nobody goes to because black kids for the most part, WOULD RATHER PLAY BASKETBALL!!
Nobody is ever on this ice rink. I know, I pass it all the time. BUT...a nice solar panel roof will not only melt the ice, but cost more money to keep that will cost us more money to keep the ice cold because the solar panels will melt the ice, and more energy will be needed ...and what planet am I on?
We can only demise that Obama is officially...either working for the communists, or certifiably insane.
Last night on Coast to Coast am....a man who has written 16 books on making prophesy predictions, tried to convince the radio audience that Obama really is NOT the Antichrist that Nostradamus talked about. No that was Saddam Hussein.
Obviously , that guy has been to the moon, and is in dire need of stimulus money. I'd beginning to think the jury is still out on that one.
I say, we give it to him.

Baptism or Water-boarding...What's the Difference?

Baptism OR Water-boarding…What’s the Difference?

Nobody Knows:

Water boarding: Push someone under the water and hold him there.
Baptism: Push someone under the water and hold him there.

What’s the difference? One is done as “torture.” One is done for “benefit.” But the actual physiological “damage” or stimulation to the brain…if measured…what does that tell us? What happens scientifically to that ball of funny-looking blubber in our heads after the fact?

Nobody wants to know, but it does have me wondering.

One of the reasons that Scott Brown won the hearts of Americans in his race for Ted Kennedy’s seat in Massachusetts was his stance on water-boarding: he supported it. It’s no secret that these guys want to kill us all…so what’s a little “nudge” under the water? Many sane Americans agree.

It’s not like any of them suffer permanent damage from water getting into the brain---like some wacky science fiction movie. I can speak from experience when I say that ear wax alone makes a pretty good plug. As for the lungs…they are very careful.

But ‘President’ Obama ran on the notion that this terrible practice, done to elicit important information, was so barbaric of a practice, that he wanted it outlawed forever.

Nevertheless…I had a crazy thought: Can water-boarding be compared to baptism? Could we be doing the “tortured” soul that we water-board an actual favor, according to the latest psychiatric research?

There is now new evidence that not only could water-boarding save lives, as many CIA agents along with Dick Cheney have insisted, but it could mean a whole new life for the person who goes through it and comes out alive on the other side!

Think I’m crazy?

Not according to Dr. Frank Lawlis. In his book, Retraining the Brain, he sites that over the years, psychiatrists have used lots of different methods to help mental sufferings, and dunking a person under water has been successfully used throughout history as a very effective maneuver, in order to…heal.

They don’t know why it works, but it does.

He notes that in Egypt and Ireland a method called “purposeful ritual” was a sure help to many a suffering mind. Unlike the damage of the frontal lobes that comes with electric shock treatments, the person who underwent the “drowning” treatment would be placed underwater and come up…transformed---

In a better way. (He doesn’t suggest we do this, mind you, but makes the point.)

Here’s how it works: “In reaction to possible drowning, the brain shunts blood into different parts of the brain, based on a priority system of immediate needs. The first area is the need for survival. This is where the person does a life review. Once the brain believes that death is inevitable, it reserves the remaining energy for relaxing and preparing for a transition---some see angels.”

(Or Elvis, but that’s another blog.)

“In the last phrase you get a message that since you probably are not going to survive; you start to think of just what you might have done to benefit the world and those you love. If you are then brought back to this reality and escape death, this last phase appears to have a lasting effect.”

Therefore, if you were just about to blow up a million people in the name of Allah, you might come to see that this really doesn’t benefit humanity at all, let alone your own family, and you would give up the plans of your cousin bin Laden, and tell what you know.

Dr. Lawlis also notes that many who come out of this “drowning “dramatically reinvent their lives as missionaries or messengers of spiritual truths.”

So, this nobody wonders… just how LONG did John the Baptist hold Jesus underwater when he was baptized? Long enough for him to kick in his, “I want to really save the world!” neurons and come out the Messiah?”

If so, thank God for John the Baptist. He did humanity a wonderful favor. He kicked -started a great movement that saved much of the world, and continues to this day.

And if holding a person underwater can deliver such a miraculous tendency for that person to want to come back to reality and devote their lives to helping humanity…I say we put in a clause in the Constitution that all members of Congress have to be baptized…

And if they refuse then we water-board them on their first pork-barrel project.

We might not get any messiahs, but maybe they would stop acting as if their heads are filled with… dish-water soapy greedy sap.

The 111st Congress…Stop the Torture! Water-board or Baptize?

It’s all the same to me.

Nobody's Perfect: Bamopoly

Nobody's Perfect:

Last week, it was reported, (for the best and most accurate report on this event, see Doug Powers site and achieves) that 'President' Barack Obama didn't find out until it was too late, that his decision to practice his first State-Of-The-Union Speech in front of second graders, was not exactly a smart thing for a sitting President to do.
Simply because, some of the children had no clue who he was.
His reasoning to the man standing on his right, ( a man who many of the kids thought was his butler) was that only the children are worth his attention now, due to the fact that most of the adults in the country are too stupid to want his "hope and change," and if he was to save the galaxy, he would have to start with the very young. most leaders find out, sometimes even the very smallest kid can ruin your day.

Like little Shanisha Williams. When she saw the strange man standing in front of her she got very scared and called her mother on her cell phone...

"MOM! Hurry, come up to the school fast!"

"Why honey...are you okay?"

"Mom...that guy on Star Trek, you know, the one with the funny ears...Spock...he brought a part of the Enterprise and is right here in our SCHOOL! Hurry! You gotta come get me!'

"Oh sweetie, that' impossible. Even if it was Spock, he's not real...he's an actor."
"No mom, this guy is REAL. He is standing on that platform where they beam people up...and what if he beams us all up!? MOM...I'm scared!"
"Honey, now calm down."
"No mom, there are two big weapons on each side of his head, those are the machines that can make you disappear with their rays! Mom...hurry...come GET ME!!"
" to me...Shanie...Shanie...?"
Well, due to the fact that, only by the swift reporting of many intelligent Internet bloggers, we might never have known about this incident at the school...I felt it only my duty to tell you the rest of the story.
And as for what happened to the little girl...we are still waiting for the answers.
But, since little Shanie was not the only kid frightened by the strange man who was on the platform, it was decided by the principal, in order to help the children all get over the shocking event, to give all the kids the brand new game called BANOPLOY to take home and practice...
So that they too could grow up one day, and scare the next generation!

How About that Global Warming?

Nobody Remembers:

Here we have a picture from a woman who admits, that global warming got so bad this year, the ice from the North Pole actually broke up and floated down the Mississippi.

Well, okay---Nobody makes this stuff up.

But this picture is REAL and not too far from my house in North St. Louis!
Yep, that's Alton Illinois, in the background, (What's left of it.) in the middle of the country---and that's the Mississippi River that she is sitting on...last week...see more pictures here.

And yet, Al Gore is still riding around in his jet.

Modonna... Where's Your Mercy?

Nobody's Opinion:

Clearly, this mother has issues.

This is Madonna's latest "adoptive" baby girl, who she named, Mercy James.

At least she got the name right.

It seems that Madonna can't decide if she wants Mercy to be a ballerina, the reincarnation of Michael Jackson...Al Jolson, or the cast of "Mammy"--- I mean, is it me?

Is this outfit just screaming for a pair of white gloves?

I happened to remember the old Minstrel shows, where white gloves were mandatory. In fact, my brother and I (as young kids) performed in some of them. The men would paint their faces black, and wear white gloves, and sing great old black hymns...and the whole town would come out, sort of like a small town Ed Sullivan show.

At that time, in my little small town, believe it or not, Minstrel shows were not considered "racist." But this was in the late 1950's. It was just a "format" for entertaining. Everyone had some kind of talent. Our town Minstrel Show was the biggest thing to happen all year. It was just plain fun. (Now, we have karaoke and American Idol)

And I always thought that when the men that dressed up in their fine suits and painted black faces, with their white derby hats and white gloves...I thought they were actually doing a tribute to the great black musical heritage of American. That's what I was told. And that's the way that they presented it. They practiced hard on their songs...and they did hand jive stuff...and it was a joy to behold. They would turn off the lights, and you'd just see their hands a was a real sight for everyone.

It was the one night of the year that a bunch of white guys could get together and really sing!

And even though we didn't have too many black folks in town, they were there too. One black lady sang the most beautiful opera songs I've ever heard.

You see, we didn't think about "prejudice" so much. The civil war had been fought, and the south was never to rise again. Even the youngest of kids knew that.

That was before Martin Luther King and the Great Society, rolled in. And then we got hit with the black panthers, and the leftest movements where we were told that forever more, we were an evil, racist, nation. Minstrels were looked back on as horrible blemishes on our nation's psyche.

Which is why, I can't for the life of me, figure out why Madonna, a woman so sensitive to black suffering, put Mercy in this outfit.

After seeing this getup, I can't say I blame Guy Richie for leaving. What mother in her right mind, would fight tooth and nails for a child, spend millions of dollars flying to Africa just to adopt her, and then come back to dress her up as some kind of spectacle?

But, maybe that's just the point. Madonna is using her children to keep her in the tabloids.

Can you see someone like Billy Ray Cyrus adopting a black child and then dressing her up like this? Don't you think someone in the liberal press would say..."Hey, this looks a bit...strange?"

And that brings me to my opinion of the day: We never talk about it, but what is it with the white rich movie stars all adopting black babies? Steven Spielberg started it. Angelina Jolie just adopted another black child (Brad is divorcing and moving in next door.)

It's not that these children are NOT very, very lucky...and don't need good homes...but for just once, I'd like to see a famous rich black couple adopt a poor white child from....Russia, or even Tennessee.

I'd like to see Oprah Winfrey adopt a couple of white kids who lost their parents in a car accident, or to drugs.

The message is always: only the black suffer and we must take care of them, like children.

And here's another thing you don't see. Why don't the black families adopt some of these Haitian kids? All we see are the wonderful white people opening up their hearts and homes to the orphans, as if to say that the "black" families don't have the money.


Somebody take a survey of just how many black families work for the government. And wasn't it just reported that governmental workers actually are doing better in wages than the rest of us?

And if that is happening...why are they not reporting it?

So, has Madonna lost her mind? Has Lady GA-GA driven her over the edge?

Or...could it be that she is getting old, and no one wants to see her naked anymore..soooo the next best thing for keeping herself in all the tabloids (and therefore money) is to cause controversy by adopting poor orphaned black children and dressing them up as organ-grinder monkeys.

Who knows, maybe these black kids will grow up one day, paint their faces white, put on black gloves, and sing good old Conway Twittey a whole new Minstrel Show of their own.

In the meantime, I can't wait to see what Mercy wears to the White House.
