How ironic is this?

And what do you mean by “appear?” Is he going to emerge from a mythical, magical cloud of smoke? Since they’ve already announced it, they kind of blew that surprise though, don’t you think?

But I guess it is an option.

Via the Christian Science Monitor comes the headline:

“Obama on ‘MythBusters’: Will he get to blow something up?”

I would have edited that to read “Will he get to blow something else up?” especially after the last year and a half with  he, Pelosi, Reid and the whole Hee-Haw gang of Democrats having presided over the destruction of what remained of our Constitution.

Never mind the facts though. The CSM staff is giddy, giddy with excitement.

We can’t wait – will Obama wear a toga? Will he hold up a big magnifying glass and light fire to a sheet of poll numbers to show the gang how it’s done?

Sheesh. I bet given the chance, he’d light The Bill of Rights with that magnifying glass and use it to light a cigarette.

OOPS! Look what I did! Tee Hee Hee. Oh well, time for a smoke break.

Here’s an idea that will never happen: Howsabout we take that magnifying glass and examine that mythical birth certificate? Hmmm? Let’s put those years of mythbusting to some actual use. But alas, that ain’t gonna happen. I wouldn’t believe anything that came out of their leftie little mouths anyway.

Still, there are endless possibilities and mysteries to be explored. They could hook him up to one of their lie detectors, but then again, I’m quite sure the polygraph machine couldn’t take so much abuse. There just isn’t that much room on those graphs for the required squiggling needle movement.

Bzzzzt. flappt. Ping!

Where did YOUR campaign contributions come from Mr. Obummer, sir? hmm?

Uhhh, Uhhh…

Is it true that you are secretly a Muslim?

Umm, er Uhh…

How many hospitals have you claimed to be born in? Hmmm?

Uhhh. Uhhmm. Well.

Which one was it really? Was it Kenya perhaps?

Uhh. I er um.

How about those communist connections with Frank Marshall Davis and Harry Bridges in Hawaii or Bill Ayers in Chicago?

Michelle, help!

Yes, these mysteries and more could be explored and the myths surrounding the man could be busted, but it isn’t going to happen.

One thing is sure. I won’t be watching.

I’m busy.

Barack Hussein Obama, Known aliases: Barry Soetero, Barry Obama, Barack Dunham and Barry Dunham

UPDATE: Steve of Motor City Times laments on the ruination.

I’ve been at a loss lately for some topic for an essay. Maybe not so much at a loss as much as experiencing a bit of burn out. Here’s a stream-of-consciousness piece I wrote trying to break the blockage:

Writer’s block party!

Everyone is invited, of course. I’ll let you guys start the conversation since lately I’m kind of at a loss with what to discuss.

Well, since you ask; the way I see it, you can only say Obama sucks in so many ways. Besides, if you haven’t chosen a side by now, in this political climate, you are purposefully ignoring the gravity of the situation here in America. And if you are still on the leftist side, there’s nothing I can say to you that will change your mind. Lefties are a lost cause as far as I’m concerned. The evidence is there. Ample evidence. You lefties just choose to ignore it or worse, actually want to tear this country apart at the seams, which, in either case makes you an enemy of freedom and a traitor to this country. Aiding and abetting the destruction of my country  is not something I take lightly.

I recon I’m going to lose a few friends in the near future but lines have been drawn long ago that must be beaten back. We can quibble all day long about libertarian versus conservative. Hell, even old school liberal versus republican, but when push comes to shove, if a person today sides with the Democraps, they are an enemy of the Constitution and by inference, the people of this country.

Come November 3rd, we will have a new kind of country, one in which a goodly number of people have awakened. The new electorate will have yet to be sworn in and I wonder on the rashness and brashness of the existing aristocracy and how much damage they have yet to do. Once, I made an Automotivator that stated making Obama and his congress a lame duck  would be the best that could happen. I have to retract that statement in this case. Pelosi, Reid, Obama, Greyson and their ilk have proven time and again they have no shame and will stop at nothing to wrest control of the country from the people. I worry that they will, after a sweeping Conservative victory this November, get vindictive over their coming loss of power and push through more destruction of our Constitution. Worse yet, is the possibility of stolen elections. I don’t hear much of that in the sources I keep up with but I put nothing past these criminals.

Yep, we’ve got a lot of work to do. We really have yet to get started. It’s like watching a bad contractor tear up your house only, in this case, we have to wait until their contract is up until we can fire them. Why is that? Why can’t we at least expunge these bastards right after the election. At least in a contractor’s case you could fire them and get them off of your property before they can do more damage. It would be nice to tie their hands so they could cause no more damage is all. I know what I speak of is not allowed in the constitution, just wishful thinking and impatience on my part.

That’s my rant for the day. I feel better. How about you?

I’ve got a football game in my near future and a baseball game this evening as well, so…

If you have a notion, stop by Wyblog, my Jersey buddy Chris Wysocki’s place, and congratulate him for getting picked by PJTV’s  Vodkapundit, Stephen Green, for the number 4 spot on blog headline of the week!

Way to go Chris!

As a bonus to the ‘bot, Chris was recently kind enough to put the Socia.list graphic up there top, front and left on his blog. Now that graphic has been seen by ten’s of thousands or millions! You keep on keepin’ on, Chris. I’ll take your stragglers any day.

If you recall, Chris was also recently picked as a contributor to Right Wing News. The hits, as they say, just keep comin’ for Chris. We’re proud of you buddy. Keep up the great work!

Nudge nudge, wink wink, say no more, say no more. Aye? Aye? Know what I mean? Know what I mean? Aye? Aye?

Cheers! ~ bot

Another conservative lady comes to Arizona’s defense, and by doing so, America’s as well. Ruth McClung is a physicist who is concerned about the direction of our country, not a career politician, concerned with lining their pockets.

…I cannot stand on the sidelines when politicians in Washington (like my opponent) are grabbing control of our personal freedoms, wrecking our economy, recklessly spending our money, and destroying America’s greatness. We need to return to limited government, personal responsibility and integrity, a strong work ethic, and opportunity for all. The American dream is to be self reliant and work to achieve the life that you want, not live off the government.

As a nation, we face many complex challenges requiring innovative solutions. My technical knowledge and expertise in scientific problem solving will be valuable in solving these problems. I will take strong, decisive stands on border security and immigration, curbing out-of-control government debt, and promoting job creation through a free market economy. I am committed to limiting our government and defending our Constitution. Working as a physicist, I understand the importance of finding the right solution instead of causing new problems. Maybe it does take a rocket scientist.

This song’s been stuck in my head for days…

The next featured blog has been a favorite of mine since before the Robot was a stray synapse in my tin-clad head. Like many of you, I admire Pundit & Pundette’s style, straight forward nature and spot-on commentary. To me, it reads less like a blog than a news site with a bit of a smirk. Perusing P & P, I feel like I’m perhaps sitting at an outdoor cafe, discussing the day’s events over coffee with some snarky friends.

An excerpt from “TIME columnist admits we were right about Obama”

Mark Halperin of TIME magazine can just barely make out the real Barack Obama from his house:

With the exception of core Obama Administration loyalists, most politically engaged elites have reached the same conclusions: the White House is in over its head, isolated, insular, arrogant and clueless about how to get along with or persuade members of Congress, the media, the business community or working-class voters… [snip]

Isolated, insular, arrogant, and clueless. Well, that’s a start. Let’s not forget narcissistic, thin-skinned, unscrupulous, polarizing, and socialist.

Whoa. Don’t hold back there, Jill. How do you really feel?

All kidding aside, I agree with her assessment one-thousand percent. I also happen to like the way she gets her point across. Like this morning’s post:

Are we talking about the President of the United States or Justin Bieber? I was going to ask whatever happened to the dignity of the office, but then I remembered Bill Clinton.

And I was going to ask if Bill Clinton was aware of his punching-bag status, but then I remembered he’s married to Hillary.

Wait, did I just steal an analogy method from Jill?

Yes I did.

Imitation is, after all, the highest form of flattery.

We can also be thankful that Pundette keeps people like Virginia Ironside front and center. Is Mzzz. Ironside the type of person who would presume to sit on the Obamacare health care panels and decide whether or not we get medical treatment? If you answered no, you should take a deeper look into Obama’s Cabinet appointments. This is what passes for compassion in those “educated” circles:

[Ironside]: ‘If a baby’s going to be born severely disabled or totally unwanted, surely an abortion is the act of a loving mother.’

[Pundette]: It’s a cold, cold arrogance which, after a look into the future, considers the following issues for others and decides on the death sentence:

Does your life have intrinsic value? No.
Because you may suffer for years, should you desire to continue living? No.
Is your death preferable to X amount of suffering, as perceived by me? Yes.
Can suffering have redeeming value for the sufferer? No.

And let’s not pretend that the advice columnist’s “good mother” doesn’t have a conflict of interest. Her own suffering, that ultimate evil in Ironside’s world, is surely part of the equation as she ponders the destruction of her child.

Jill then adds a “palate cleanser” and some further background on the “loving mother.” The entire article begs for your attention.

She can also spot a great quote when she sees one.

When it comes to school reform, I’m with John Derbyshire:

Here is my prescription for a reform of the nation’s education system. First, destroy all the schools. Cart away the rubble for landfill and sow the ground with salt. Abolish the federal Department of Education and all state equivalents. End all education funding from public sources.

Pundit and Pundette is a site that has proved it’s worth time and time again in the realm of analysis, commentary and aggregation of news from across the political spectrum. It’s written with a style that feels like home cooking and I love the smell of freshly brewed snark in the morning…

If you haven’t already done so, be sure to bookmark Pundit and Pundette.

Add P & P to your blogrolls, and visit P & P at least once a day. You’ll be glad you did.

Be sure to let them know a rusty tin man sent you.

Longhaired Conservative no more.

I meant to send off this little caterpillar a month ago, right after I had it cut. It evidently had other plans.  I just found the tin-foil it was wrapped in tucked behind some other things on the to-do list, hiding. Maybe some kid will enjoy having salt and pepper hair. I suspect they’ll dye it, or take one look at that mass of stuff and chunk it.

Wigs for Kids is an organization that makes wigs for children who lose their hair due to some medical treatment or disease, similar to Locks of Love. They provide the wigs free of charge but each wig takes around $2000 to produce. If you can make a donation, I’m absolutely positive it would be appreciated.

I had a time picking which to donate to. It came down to a coin toss and Wigs for Kids got the nod.

Back to house work. I’m a Domesticated Robot this weekend. Mom should be proud.

Some random thoughts before I commence on the weekend duties:

I see that Joel Demos won the TBF poll this week. I’ll be donating to his campaign shortly.

From Joel’s website:

I cannot sit still while our country goes down a road that has proven to lead to financial ruin. For my children and yours, my family has decided to embark on this journey to help restore some sanity to Washington.

Thanks to Right Klik for running the Ten Buck Fridays poll and Conscientiously Conservative for coming up with the original concept. Great work both of you and the over 80 bloggers who participate. Speaking of CC, I just looked and realized, she’s not on my blogroll! DOH!

Wait a second while I correct that omission.

While I’m on the subject of blogroll, There are a couple of additions you may be interested in: Holding the Line in Texas, and Fleece Me, who was kind enough to link to the Socia.list page.

We’re down to the last few weeks of the campaign season. Is it just me or do any of you feel a bit burned out from all of the politics? I know I am. Not being a career political junkie or reporter, this season has got to be the most focused I’ve ever been on politics. It wears on a robot. I need a good lube job. And a shot of rum. How do the politicians do it? Are they all on coke?

After the election, I’m going to form a new band or at least join one.  I’m feeling the urge to beat on some skins and stretch out the vocal chords. I’ve definitely got some frustration that needs venting. Not sure how much of those happenings I’ll post on this blog though, as some people are more interested in politics than music and I like my political anonymity. I may have to start another, just to separate the two. Or maybe another page on this one. It’s up in the air for now. We’ll see.

For the rest of the weekend, posting may be lite. My freaking DSL is on the fritz again. Come this Tuesday, that problem will hopefully be solved. The ‘bot is going to cable. Buh-Bye ATT with your dropped service every 5 minutes and a ten minute post taking an hour to complete. Also, my house needs cleaning and the studio needs some maintenance. Bottom line is, it’s just too pretty outside to spend dealing with an off and on internet connection, so there you have it.

Speaking of music, here’s one of my faves from the Doobies:

Enjoy your weekend, my friends.

After much contemplation, a lot of hand-wringing analysis of the site stats, and a few beers, I’ve come to the conclusion that Bob Belvedere is right. I have a problem titling my posts. See, I’m stoopid. I was under the impression that people might actually be interested, even a bit PO’d to find out the identities of the insidious  Socialists in their State Governments, but I guess not. (Those of you who shared the posts are of course not included.)

The socialists at the national level? Who needs to search for those? They are on TV and the intertoobz every day. I can’t turn on my radio without hearing Obummer spouting off about his latest Baracklishment, and after the HealthCare jam-down, anyone who is remotely sane has already put names to their particular demons.

So, where are you going with this ‘bot?

Glad you asked.

From now on, I’m going to strive to be more creative, more exciting, tantalizing, even titillating with my headlines.

For instance, I think the “1000+ Socialists in State Governments” post could have been helped with some more panache’. How about:

“Beer Swilling Space Aliens Take Over Capitol!”

No? OK, let’s try to inject a bit more sex.

“Big Breasted Babes Danger to Mother Gaia!”

“Massive Melons Threaten to Tip Earths Axis!”

“Cleavage Crisis Widens! Enviro-Mentalists Urge Ban on Silicone!”

That one should start a riot or two.

Here’s one for the “Twilight” crowd:

“Deadly Vampire Swamp Creatures Invade New Hampshire! Ignore At Your Own Peril!(Some may be more truthful than others.)

Sure, they have no relevance to the article. So what? The New York Times and National Enquirer get away with overblown hype every day. People want entertainment. They don’t want the truth. The majority of them wouldn’t know the truth if an America-hating Commie/Muslim was in the White House stealing trillions from them for his personal slush fund and trashing the nation’s sovereignty while smacking them in the face with a Ground Zero Mosque! To them I say, careful what you ignore. In today’s day and age, what you don’t know can and will kill you.

Hope you’ve enjoyed today’s rant. I was really pissed off when I started this. Now I’m only slightly flustered.

Lately, we bloggers have been focused on the national elections in our attempts to reclaim and restore our Constitutional Republic. The people who belong to the Progressive States Network are working against that goal at all levels, including the State Legislatures.

As noted in the previous post, 1000 Progressives in State Governments,

The PSN is a network of Progressive organizations that share Obama’s goal of the ‘fundamental transformation of America’

and as noted on the new Socia.list page, the members of the PSN Board of Directors include a bonafide “who’s-who” of Progressive/Socialist/Communist thought.

The Socia.list is depressingly long.

It shows just how much work we have to do to vote these people out and restore sanity to our Republic, but it can be done. Here’s how, as I see it:

1. Make note of who your representatives are along with their opponents.

2. Get that list to your TEA Party and Republican Party leaders for distribution.

3. Get out the vote!

4. Watch the Progressives lose office on Nov. 2.

5. Rest a bit.

6. Get back to work!

There are still some Progressives left, but we will have hopefully ousted enough to make the rest fear for their jobs. Go forth and strengthen the organizations you’ve joined and or started. Two years remain before we can truly turn the ship of state in the right direction, towards a restoration of our Founding Principles and a Constitutional Republic.

The new Socia.list page can be found at the top of the blog, just under the masthead and to the right of the Shoppe tab.

Thanks to Steve from Texas Pixel Magic and Libertarian Buddha for the Socia.list graphics.

Today we remember that it’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month. In order to help my readers in prioritizing the significance of the event, I’ve chosen a few appropriate photos which, in addition to the national campaign, I hope will also serve as a reminder of a friend whom we all miss dearly.

Is it “who” or “whom” in that context? I never can remember.

At any rate, on with the post.

This being Rule 5 Saturday, and pink being the color chosen for Save the Tata’s Month, this two part theme will be of a very pinkish hue. I’ll let the loyal reader guess as to the identity of the person I seek to honor and send well wishes to, because they have specifically asked to receive no undue attention.

As usual, some of these embiggin with near life-size results.

We pause for a little Rule 5 for the ladies:
