The Academy Awards White House

imageA Canada Free Press (CFP) columnist asked in passing over the weekend if I thought President Barack Obama is a Marxist, and if so “What kind?”

“The most anti-American, anti-freedom kind,” was my reply.

But does it really matter “what kind of Marxist”  Obama is?  What should really matter is that there is a president in the White House stealing individual rights and the freedom of his own people, not to mention the sincerely held hopes of all other little people affected by America’s place in the world.

A Genuine Black American Hero for Black History Month

Black History Month just ended-so can I nominate a genuine Black American hero for next year’s?

Don’t look for this from Oprah, Tavis Smiley, The Congressional Black Caucus, or anywhere in the MSM including (especially!) The History Channel, or PBS but the second in command of the freedom-fighters who hit the Bay of Pigs beachhead 50 years ago was a black Cuban (and today a proud U.S. citizen and retired Major General of the U.S. Amy) named Erneido Oliva.

Reader Comments for Ridin’ Out the Recession:

Reader feedback

From: Larry
Dear Dub and Deb,

Made me laugh.  Several summers ago, about 50 plus or minus, I took my trip to the “Big Lake”!  My Uncle Bob had been in an auto accident and was in a wheel chair.  He could drive but not get around very well on his own.  He was a little crazy on a good day!  Anyway, his Dad had a trailer park on Marathon Key and Uncle Bob decided to drive from De Land to Marathon with myself and his three small children.  He sold it as a better place to convalesce for awhile.  I think he wanted to get away from my Mother’s younger sister!  We had one of those crazy trips that all kids love.  We stopped at all those eccentric roadside tourist traps.  We saw wigwams, snake pits, alligator farms, the largest Magnolia Tree, biggest Cypress, we saw it all!  We all decided to go to the “Big Lake”.

Dave’s Cheese Grits:

-From Riding’ out the Recession

Dave Rankin is a good friend of my Mama’s and Dad’s, and all the family as well. Dave’s a great guy and loves my Mom to death. Dave’s been in the banking business for many, many years, and I believe may have been all his life.

I was going through Mama’s recipes, and ran across one Dave had tossed in the hat. I don’t think I’ve banked with Dave before but got to thinking this morning…”You know what Dub? Things are indeed tough right now, and with that said, these tough times may continue to deteriorate, and literally become really, really, tough times!”

The West’s proxy war against the Jews

It was a stunning moment of moral clarity. As the South Vietnamese refugees clambered onto rickety boats in the South China Sea to escape the victorious Communists, the American Left that orchestrated the US defeat through a sustained campaign of propaganda and fake calls for peace stood silent.

As Pol Pot, the “progressive” dictator tortured and murdered a third of his people in Cambodia, the leftists “peace” activists in the US and Europe who never saw a US military operation that was justified, turned a blind eye.

Ruthie’s Chip Beef Dip:

-From Riding’ out the Recession

This recipe is a dip and it’s a dern good one too! My Mama has made this numerous times and it’s always a hit. We were going through some of Mama’s recipes this morning and there it was, laying on top in one of her recipe books. I pointed out in the yard and told Deb, “LOOK!” Soon as she turned to look, I grabbed this recipe & took off upstairs! Gotcha Deb!

Simple, quick, economical, and oh so good!

‘The King’s Speech’ is Deserving of its Best Picture Oscar

NEW YORK, —Robert Peters, President of Morality in Media, had the following comments in response to last night’s announcement that the film The King’s Speech won four Oscars, including Best Picture.

“One can only wonder why the director of The King’s Speech chose to include scenes in which Colin Firth, the actor who played King George VI, repetitively utters the ‘F-word’ during sessions with a speech therapist.

ObamaCare Furthers Black Genocide

Thirty four hundred per day. I thought, per day? No, this can’t be true. Unfortunately, I was wrong. Over thirty four hundred babies are aborted in America every day. Wow!

Despite Democrat U.S. Senator Barbara Boxer’s feeble attempt to spin the truth otherwise, Obama’s Health Care Law does offer taxpayer funded abortions.

Frugality Is Fun

In this materialistic, card-swipe age, frugality and thrift are often ignored. But for those whose parents understood the value of dollars earned through hard work, and taught it to their children, those words are guideposts.

Watching the Democratic Party Implode

It’s déjà vu for me as I think back to the last two years of Jimmy Carter as his “progressive” program of “sacrifice” and his impotence in the face of the Iranian hostage taking of U.S. diplomats left him looking weak and overwhelmed by events.
