When Stating The Obvious Is Stigmatized.

So Rudy Giuliani is catching flack for questioning Obama's love of his country? Let us not merely pose the question, let us also answer it.

Barack America hates America.

His hatred for America is surpassed only by his hatred for Americans. America can be "fundamentally transformed" like Silly Putty in the hands of a child but he knows the bitter clingers will remain resolute in their thoughts and deeds. They need constant monitoring from NSA, IRS, DHS, FBI and DOJ.

I don't care how many years Barack Obama spent in a nominally Christian church, he despises all things Christian.

Barack Obama is not wild about Western Civilization except when it leads to has-been super powers as in Western Europe. Yes, he loves countries who promote economic underachievement and who provide a Welcome mat for terrorists. But the Western Civilization that feeds the world and who dominates technological innovation and who has the capacity and know how to energize the world and who stands up for what is right? Not so much.

Barack Obama has surrounded himself with America-bashers including his own wife. In the six years this blog has been active, we have rarely mentioned the first lady except for her lavish vacations and expensive tastes. Rest assured her "For the first time in my adult life, I am proud of my country" will live on just as long as Marie Antoinette's "Let them eat cake." Maybe longer because the latter quote is disputed but the former will live on as long as there is Youtube.

Are we also going to hear that Valerie Jarrett loves America or Jeremiah Wright or Eric Holder or Bill Ayers or Bernadine Dohrn? You make the case. I can't do so.

I am certain there are elements of America this president loves. He likes basketball and hip hop artists, if not hip hop. He likes corporate donors and mindless celebrities and brain dead apologists and fawning journalists and Youtubers who sing their praises to "The One" and he loves anyone who can be used a political pawn. But does he love the larger America, the larger America we regard as Exceptional?

Items From My Mailbox:Thanks Mooseman

Illinois & Oklahoma: 
I thought these two states, made for an interesting contrast. The first part about Illinois and the second part is about Oklahoma! 
PART 1 - Illinois 
"A State with No Republicans"! 
Some interesting data on the 'state' of, the State of Illinois... There are more people on welfare in Illinois than there are people working. Chicago pays the highest wages to teachers than anywhere else in the U.S. Their average pay is $110,000/year. Their pensions average 80-90% of their income. Wow, are Illinois and Chicago great or what? Be sure to read till the end. I've never heard it explained better. Perhaps the U.S. should pull out of Chicago ? 
I miss forwarding chains. Done in by Facebook, I suppose. I am not sure of the time frame of the statistics cited here. This lists Jesse Jackson, Jr., as Congressman but later reminds us that he vacated his seat to serve his country in another capacity.

The state of Illinois and the City of Chicago are in deeper trouble than most people realize and I suspect we will continue to hear more about their problems.

Body count: 
In the last six months, 
292 killed ( murdered ) in Chicago . 
  killed in Iraq AND Chicago has one of the strictest gun laws in the entire US. 

Here's the Chicago chain of command 

President: Barack  Hussein Obama .
Senator: Dick Durbin .
House Representative: Jesse Jackson Jr. .
Governor: Pat Quinn .
House leader: Mike Madigan .
Atty. Gen.: Lisa Madigan (daughter of Mike) .
Mayor: Rahm  Emanuel .
The  leadership in Illinois - all Democrats. . 

Thank you for the combat zone in Chicago . .
Of course, they're all blaming each other. .
Can't blame Republicans; there aren't any! . 

Let us get ALL   the facts out while we are at it: 
Chicago school system rated one of the worst in the country. Can't blame Republicans; there aren't any! 
State pension fund $78 Billion in debt, worst in country.
Can't blame Republicans; there aren't any! 

Cook County ( Chicago ) sales tax 10.25% highest in country. Can't blame Republicans; there aren't any! 
This is the political culture that Obama comes from in Illinois. And he is going to 'fix'Washington politics for us? 
George Ryan is no longer Governor, he is in prison. 
He was replaced by Rob Blagojevich who is, by the way, also in prison. 
And Representative Jesse Jackson Jr. resigned and, that's right, he and his wife are both in prison. 
The Land of Lincoln , where our Governors and Representatives make our license plates.  What? 
As long as they keep providing entitlements to the population of Chicago, nothing is going to change, except the state will go bankrupt before the country does. 
"Anybody who thinks he can be happy and prosperous by letting the Government take care of him better take a closer look at the American Indian." 
Don't forget Detroit , another great example of a Democratic empire. 
   With all the bad news, there is hope, so let's go to: 
PART  2- Oklahoma 

OKLAHOMA- may soon have plenty of new residents! 

Oklahoma is the only state that Obama did not win even one county in the last election...  While everyone is focusing on Arizona 's new law, look what Oklahoma has been doing!!! 
An update from Oklahoma: 
   Oklahoma law passed, 37 to 9 an amendment to place the Ten Commandments on the front entrance to the state capitol. The feds in D.C., along with the ACLU, said it would be a mistake. Hey this is aconservative state, based on Christian values... HB 1330 
Guess what... Oklahoma did it anyway. 
Oklahoma recently passed a law in the state to incarcerate all   illegal immigrants and ship them back to where they came from unless they want to get a green card and become an American citizen. They all scattered. HB1804. This was against the advice of the Federal Government, and the ACLU, they said it would be a mistake. 
Guess what... Oklahoma did it anyway. 
   Recently we passed a law to include DNA samples from any and all illegal's to the Oklahoma database, for criminal investigative purposes.Pelosi said it was unconstitutional SB1102.   
Guess what... Oklahoma did it anyway. 
Several weeks ago, Oklahoma passed a law, declaring   Oklahoma as aSovereign state, not under the Federal Government directives. Joining, Texas , Montana and Utah as the only states to do so. 

More states  are likely to follow: Louisiana, Alabama, Georgia, the Carolinas, Kentucky, Missouri, Arkansas, West Virginia, Mississippi and Florida.
     Save your confederate money, it appears the South is about to rise up once  
again. HJR 1003
The federal Government has made bold steps to take away our guns. Oklahoma, a week ago, passed a law confirming people in this state have the right to bear arms and transport them in their vehicles. I'm sure that was a setback for the criminals  The Liberals didn't like it- - 
Guess what... Oklahoma did it anyway. 
Just this month, the state has voted and passed a law that ALL drivers' license exams will be printed in English and only English and no other language. They have been called racist for doing this, but the fact is that ALL of the road signs are in English only. If you want to drive in Oklahoma , you must read and write English. Really simple. 
By the way, the Liberals don't like any of this either. 
Guess what... who cares... Oklahoma is doing it anyway. 
If you like it, pass it on, if you don't then delete it... 

Guess what:       the people I'm sending this to, will send it on.   

Well, at least the ones who love and
believe in freedom       will.

No, Fifty Shades Of Gray Is Not A Senior Dating Site

I am tempted to expound on the reactions to "Fifty Shades Of Grey" by people who have not seen the movie or read the book. I have not seen nor read and neither is a priority right now but I will address the condemnation at a later time.

For now, I will discuss "American Sniper." Cabin fever got the best of me and I raced out on a Sunday evening to view AS. It reminds me a bit like "Titanic" in that it appeals to both sexes. "Titanic" started out as a love story but ultimately morphed into an adventure film. The perfect date.

There are a dozen ways to tell the Chris Kyle story and all in all Clint Eastwood did a great job. I liked the battle scenes much more than the domestic scenes but there was a certain honesty there that was touching. Chris Kyle married a girl he met in a bar and in many respects they were average people. Watching the movie I felt like these were people with feelings, not actors with technique. Nothing schmaltzy here.

One way I measure movies is by how much my mind wanders. The older I get the more my focus wanes during movies. I attribute that more to the movie makers than to my concentration. I often feel like I have already seen the movie because the work on the screen has borrowed liberally from other films. This is especially true in this golden age of remakes. I found "American Sniper" engaging. My mind did not drift off to my endless To Do List or preparations for the weekly schedule. Roger Ebert described the state as an out of body experience. Quite a different event than what Robert Monroe described as an out of body experience. I experienced an OBE in the Ebert sense of the term. Mission accomplished.

I wish there were more movies like "American Sniper."
