I know what Lincoln and MLK will be doing on Obama’s inauguration day.
Rolling over in their graves.
I’ll once again be fighting the urge to vomit.
Obama’s cynicism, hypocrisy and egotism really are insufferable. One bible isn’t enough for the “wonder boy” -- and he is a boy in all his arrested emotional development.
He has to have both Lincoln’s and MLK’s bibles?
Methinks thou art selling thyself too pathetically and shamelessly hard, Barack! Read below the fold...

Frightening, eh? Just think--literally every other person that you and I lay eyes on are not members of the much-vaunted "Middle Class," to which politicians on both sides of the isle incessantly pander.
I still cannot believe how little 'press' the AP piece below, on the 2010 US Census Bureau Statistics, got when it was published just over a year ago. I forget when and where I first saw this piece, although I posted it on several blogs. I apologize that it is dated, but the content is not of any lesser significance, in my opinion.

The LA Times editor says they are publishing this letter, so I'm posting it in case anyone else may want to send something like it to their paper. Feel free to rewrite, improve, expand, whatever you like. But as Ralphbon notes in the comments below, cut-and-paste copying is probably not the best idea. If it starts looking like a form letter, it'll be trashed.
The Times only accepts pieces under 150 words, so this one is short. It's in response to an editorial entitled "Debt and Taxes in DC."
And here's the letter:
RE: Debt & Taxes in DC (9 November, 2012)

Someone at Facebook temporarily banned New Yorker magazine for violating the "Nudity and Sex" standards. The problem: a cartoon that used two dots to represent female nipples.
The scandalous pencil dots are the subject of a follow-up blog post -- "Nipplegate" -- from the cartoon editor, a not-to-be missed gem. Read below the fold...

Because he lies about everything. Anyhow, just for the record, from CQ in mail:
Obama was a gun control advocate as a state legislator and an Illinois senator. As a candidate four years ago he called for reinstating the assault weapons ban, and after Giffords was almost gunned down last year he promised to propose legislation that would “keep those irresponsible, law-breaking few from getting their hands on a gun in the first place.” But he has never fulfilled that promise, and yesterday the White House made abundantly clear that no such proposal was coming.

Remember those 30 years you spent working at a job you didn't like all that much so that you'd be able to retire one day? Sorry about that. The states' public employee retirement and health care funds are in the hole by nearly $1.4 trillion -- with a T. Read below the fold...

What makes the nation's capitol so special? Yes, he actually asked that question. And yes, he is from South Carolina, funny you should ask.
Actually Congressman, DC has no more first amendment rights than anywhere else in the country, it is just that in DC we actually respect the constitution. Read below the fold...
