Homeless with a cell phone

homeless2

There’s nothing wrong with the First Lady helping to serve food at a homeless shelter for the needy.  I applaud her for that.  However, you’ve got to ask why a “homeless” man has a cell phone and would dare to step into a soup-line and use it to take a picture of the First Lady. 

This guy doesn’t have enough money for food, but he can afford a cell phone?  Where does the bill go if he’s homeless?  Maybe in this new era of hope, change, and a free-falling stock market, he sends the bill to the White House.

Iran Uses Apology Letters as Propaganda

In an unprecedented event on September 24, 2007, Iranian President Mahmud Ahmadinejad spoke in a public forum at Columbia University. His appearance was both hailed and condemned as it was the first time an openly communist leader was allowed to speak freely on U.S. soil. Interestingly, Lee Bollinger, the Chancellor of Columbia University, not only invited Ahmadinejad to the forum, but introduced him by berating him and his communist policies.

The response by many was rightful condemnation over Iran’s policies towards women, gays, and Israel. Ahmadinejad kept on message during the forum by denying the holocaust and affirming that he felt that the U.S. presence in the Middle East was unwarranted. However, there was a letter-writing contingent in the audience that felt that Ahmadinejad was mistreated and wrongfully criticized by Bollinger. This contingent did what they do best–write apology letters to Iran!

So, now the Iranian Presidential Office has published a book entitled “Dialogue In Iranian Style”, which contains the letters of American Citizens apologizing for the “offensive” behavior of the Chancellor. If this contingent of communist letter-writing sympathizers was consistent in their ideology, shouldn’t letters have be written to all the holocaust survivors in the U.S. for allowing Ahmadinejad to deny the holocaust at a nationally televised forum?

Which is more offensive? Truthfully describing the devastatingly oppressive effects of communism and drawing attention to a culture of human rights violations or denying the reality of the holocaust? Apparently in this day and age, progressives find the truth more offensive than deliberate lies.

Global Warming? Earth Day Celebration Blasted By Blizzard

Happy Earth Day! How about that out of control, man-made Global Warming? More like the lack of it in Edmonton, Canada.

Eco-friendly groups in Edmonton were forced to abandon their original locations for their Earth Day celebration due to the blizzard. I guess they had to change their talking points from Global Warming to Global “Climate Change” to not sound like complete lunatics.

Report from the Edmonton Sun.

So much for global warming. Earth Day festivities went ahead despite the blast of frigid weather yesterday.

Vendors and presenters from various eco-friendly groups, including Bullfrog Power, CO2 Reduction Edmonton and the local solar energy society, crammed into a lone tent in Hawrelak Park after a blizzard forced them to abandon their original locations.

Organizers crammed over 40 groups in a space that would normally be occupied by half that number. Presenters’ booths were initially planned to have been spread out between at least five tents, with far larger displays.

“We’re normally here with a lineup of cyclists for our free bike repair service. No bikers came today. Big surprise,” said Chris Field of Mountain Equipment Co-Op.

A handful of visitors still took the time to inquire about several solar-powered products on display at the M.E.C. booth and browsed several others before running off toward the lone heater in the tent to warm up.

A lemonade vendor towards the front might as well not have been there.

“Obviously we’ll have fewer people than we would have liked, but to cancel an Earth Day event because of weather would kind of be the antithesis of what this is all about,” said organizer Janice Boudreau.

“This isn’t about celebrating just the parts of the Earth that we like, it’s about celebrating all of it.”

Eco-Air representative Eric Gormley couldn’t convince local kids lobbying city council for an anti-idling bylaw to brave the cold yesterday, but happily stepped up on their behalf, offering stickers and information about greenhouse gas emissions from vehicles.

“We’re here to raise awareness of the problem, even though on a day like today you don’t necessarily think of global warming,” he said.

“We especially want to encourage young people in school to join us. It’s the youth that have the power to make real change.”

Toys “R” Us and Lower Back Tattoos

Apparently, Toys “R” Us doesn’t think our little girls are getting their trampy fix, so they’ve allowed lower back tattoo stickers to be sold in their stores….right next to Hannah Montana and Minnie Mouse. Nice.

I wonder if any of them say “Juicy” or “I’m easy”. What’s next? Fake body piercings for your six year old?

War Protesters Ruin Easter In Chicago Church

On Easter Sunday, six protesters of the Iraq war decided to stage their protest at Holy Name parish during Catholic Mass. Their tactic? Squirt fake stage blood on themselves and nearby worshipers during Mass. Despite their male and female membership, they referred to themselves as Catholic Schoolgirls Against the War. Their actions are an insult to real Catholic schoolgirls as anyone with a third grade education could have staged a much more intelligent and effective protest.

Absurd News of the Week (3/20)

Osama bin Laden has a lousy sense of humor.

As reported by the AP, bin Laden just released a five minute long audio message specifically dealing with the topic of….(drumroll)….cartoons. The message seems to be against cartoons published in Danish newspapers of the prophet Muhammad with a bomb shaped turban that were republished on Feb 13th of this year. However, these so-called “insulting” cartoons have been around for two years now, so I guess Osama bin Laden is behind the times. Must be living in a cave or something…

Mohammed bomb

But there has been increased chatter in jihad forums calling for revenge on European nations over the cartoons. Bin Laden called for “grave punishment” over them. Do these Muslims threatening to kill innocent people over cartoons actually use their brain for anything, or is their skin too thin to take any kind of joke?

Cat Hunting

In Boulder, Colorado a city official is seeking to pass an ordinance that would require cat owners to keep their cats indoors at all times. Why? Because cats are responsible for “the suffering of many small animals and birds.” No kidding! That is precisely why most farmers have dozens of cats…for pest control.

Apparently it isn’t good enough for environmentalists to “save birds” by forcing the elimination of nearly all effective pesticides after Rachel Carson wrote “Silent Spring” in 1962 or stop the building of a solar power plant in the California desert because of the endangered red-cheeked squirrel. Now we have to literally attempt to alter the food chain of animals to protect certain species. Let me ask you something….who made us God? Since when do we get to decide which animals and species are more numerous than other species? I thought most environmentalists believed in survival of the fittest. Isn’t this just an example of that?

What is next in Colorado? Banning of mouse traps or rat poison? How about banning sliding glass doors? I’ve heard of birds flying into those before. What about banning RAID? You wouldn’t want to kill the birds’ food after all.
