    Well, thanks to Gwyneth Paltrow we now know water has feelings.

    It’s all of a piece: Proclaim Cesar Chavez Day to coincide with Easter and use the Easter service to promote a radical agenda.

    In my world, the Imam’s comments are called “blackmail”.

    Our freedom of speech is not the creation of government but of God, therefore “inalienable”, therefore not something with which government may interfere. Sorry, fella. If you can’t handle that then leave. But don’t sit here telling us that we have to limit our speech because if we don’t you might get violent. That is a terrorist threat in and of itself, and we will not cower before you.

    Lolo finished 4th behind three Olympic and world champions. What have any of you done lately? Depraved morons.

    LGBT response in a nutshell: “He didn’t do it, wouldn’t do it, and anyway straights do it all the time.”

    Given this guy’s high profile I find it difficult to believe that the police would have moved without very strong probable cause.

    And BTW, to Theresa Sparks: the information may be incredible (difficult to believe) but you are “incredulous” (skeptical, disbelieving).

    Let me see if I tracked Gross’ logic:

    DG: “We’re not anti-gun, we’re anti-killing people” (tell it to al-Awlaki’s family)
    SEC: “Guns don’t kill people, people kill people”
    DG: “And usually people with guns” … Therefore … we’re anti-gun. No?

    And of course he’s got his foot on the Harvard stone. Just getting ready for putting his feet on the furniture in the WH.

    First, it is no surprise that Obama is proceeding in this way. This is a man who demands — needs — absolute solo control.

    Second, I couldn’t help but note that the decision to assassinate al-Awlaki (the American citizen referred to in the article) was “an easy one”, but the decision to pull the trigger on bin Laden was “the gutsiest call in the history of the world” (or something to that effect). I’m sorry, but I struggle with this a bit. Deciding to assassinate an American citizen without respecting any of the rights of due process under the Constitution that inhere in his status as a citizen is “an easy one”, but deciding to kill a man who was an international outlaw and on our kill list for 10 years was “gutsy”? Wow. The mind boggles at the upside-down world view that could come up with that one.

    I remember once somebody said “the internet is the greatest experiment in anarchy the world has ever known.” Of course, those days are gone in any event. Create a situation and inevitably somebody is going to try to control it. But we don’t need that kind of control; we just need freedom of expression.

    Astounding. Who thought to put a camera on his board?

    A small discrepancy: D’Souza claims that Obama Sr married three times (including Duncan) without ever divorcing any of his other wives, yet this article asserts that Obama and Duncan divorced. Somebody needs to check some facts.

    Also, it is to say the least highly doubtful that OWS derived any inspiration from Days of Rage, which was a 1968 demonstration against a Democratic Party convention in Chicago. OWS has never been even remotely that political notwithstanding the efforts of various leftists to pour their visions into it.

    I have been opposed to Obama since his 2004 speech at the DNC, and despise OWS. Nonetheless, let’s keep facts and inferences straight.

    Isn’t this the same one who thought it might be a good idea to suspend elections in 2012? Now we have a better idea as to why.

    @DB321: “What are we talking about here – Obama has done nothing compared to Romney bulling a Closet Gay youth in High School with Beach Blond Hair. He and his buddies held him down and cut his hairs with scissors. The youth was so traumatized that he die at 50 riddled with Canser as a result of his inhumane treatment from the the 60′s Worst Bully the World has known.

    OK, time for you to grow up and pay attention. The WaPo article was false; there is no actual evidence that this happened, no evidence Lauber was gay, no evidence anyone thought he was gay (this was in the 60s, and long hair meant “hippie rebel”), no evidence that “the incident” haunted him his entire life, and certainly no evidence that his final illness was somehow related to this “incident”, assuming of course that the “incident” ever happened.

    And finally, “the Worst Bully the World has known”? Aside from your issues with written English, can you possibly be serious? You have lived a sheltered life indeed if you think for a moment that is true; in my elementary school we had a kid who went after kids he didn’t like with the buckle end of a belt. Nothing described in the WaPo fairy tale even comes close, even assuming anything in the WaPo story is remotely true, which is is not.

    It’s just confirmation of Mark Twain’s old comment that a lie travels around the world 1,000 times before the truth can put on its pants.

    It’s simple: Planned Parenthood is an abortion mill. They promote abortion based in part on the claim that what is inside the women is not a human being but a mass of undifferentiated cells. They know it would take a lot for a woman to go forward with an abortion once the woman hears the heartbeat, because unlike the cold calculations of Planned Parenthood real people cannot easily destroy life. I think the woman should know what she is doing, and if her own convenience is still more important to her than that fetal life, she can live with that decision the rest of her life.

    Is it freedom of speech? Yes. The Supreme Court has said so more than once.

    Is it tasteful? No. Is it where I would like the level of our political discourse to be? No. Do I think it worth paying attention to? No. Let the beat go on.

    “And you got me in the house!”
    “C’mon, you can clap, it’s OK!”
    “But enough about me. Do you love me?”

    Jeez. I have a HS emo-girl daughter with more emotional maturity in the bank than this Urkel, this petulant man-child. News flash to the Big O: The White House is not where you work out your self-esteem issues or your burgeoning mid-life crisis.

    As I note elsewhere in this thread, Panetta produced a memo for the CIA in which Admiral McRaven is identified as the man behind the planning and calling the signals, not Obama. All this has been for the resident president is one extended photo op.

  • May 1, 2012 at 2:15am

    And now we know that the SEAL Teams are making it clear that from their POV the decision was a “no-brainer”. And more, the NYT has released a memo from Panetta identifying Admiral McRaven as the signal-caller, not Obama. So Obama is taking all the credit for a call that was not all that difficult, and that he did not even make himself. And that’s the best thing he can point to in three years in office.

    Sigh. Doesn’t anyone get it? A leftist cannot be a bully any more than a black person can be racist. The streets always only run one way.
