Some celebrities prefer colored Christmas lights: Ben Stein for one

Several weeks ago I wrote a column about the current commercial-like use of white lights for decorating during the Christmas season.  (Being a traditionalist, I flatly refuse to call it the “Holiday season” when we are clearly talking about Christmas.)  I advocated strongly, again for traditionalist reasons, for the old-fashioned, but never outlived multi-colored lights, in particular for our homes and neighborhoods decorations of Christmas trees, house and yard trimming.

Maybe Obama really can’t remember connections and people!

Is Illinois in need of an inpatient treatment center or something?  They certainly seem to have a problem getting a good Governor don’t they? Nice, hair Governor Blagojevich was hauled off in handcuffs and facing many charges, one of which was trying to sell for big bucks Obama’s senate seat. Isn’t that precious?  Before that they had Governor George Ryan, once again the center of a corruption investigation who is serving a six-year prison sentence.  I believe racketeering and fraud charges ring a bell with that joker.

Raging Constitutional Debate: Can Obama Pardon Himself?

image- Satire -
From the Washington Times, yet another nasty example of corruption from Illinois:

”A former Illinois bank official, now claiming whistleblower status, says bank officials replaced a loan reappraisal that he prepared for a Chicago property that was purchased by the wife of now-convicted felon Tony Rezko, part of which was later sold to next-door neighbor Barack Obama.”

Hear Me!  For I Am The Dying Voice of Liberty

Hear me, oh you lost and depraved citizens of America.  Hear me!  For I am the dying voice of Liberty.

I beseech you to listen closely to the sounds of the death throws of your freedom.

  Listen to the wrenching noise as the jagged cracks open up wider in Lady Liberty’s foundation. 

The sounds of the angry sea of socialism pouring into the cracks at a rapid rate and eroding the fissures even more, echo in the distance.

America Must Not Trust ANY Politician from Illinois!

imageThe arrest of Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich on corruption charges, including allegations that he solicited bribes to fill the vacated Senate seat of President-elect Barack Obama, confirms what thinking Americans have always known.

Illinois is, and has always been, a congregation of corrupt politicians, vipers who buy and sell political offices and favors to the highest bidder, with little or no regard for the integrity of our democratic process.

The Cult of Obama

David Limbaugh, a widely read conservative columnist, recently wrote about the “Obama cult factor” and what it portends. From my point of view, however, it is one thing to rise to the highest office as the apotheosis of hope and change, and quite another to deal with nasty reality.

Why The Media Blackout On Obama’s Citizenship

It seems that everyone today is asking why there is no media coverage of the many legal challenges to Obama’s eligibility to become president, based upon many valid questions regarding his citizenship. Instead of simply answering these challenges with documented proof of his citizenship, he has chosen instead to conceal from public view, every single legal document he has, and spend a half million dollars in lawyer fees to fight the cases in hopes of getting them dismissed or delayed indefinitely.

Jon Favreau is a precocious young lad who has been invited to work in the West Wing of the White House as the Director of Speechwriting for President-elect Barack Obama.

All of 27, Mr. Favreau began his writing career for Senator John Kerry’s presidential campaign. On a happier, more successful note, Favreau was Barack Obama’s chief speechwriter throughout the 2008 campaign.
