Hello all! Well there was (just in case you noticed)  a new blip in my normal, quiet, political existence!  I will name it a lifus interruptis.. or perhaps a shit happens episode; but whatever it was,  my last blogging was .. actually my last blogging for quite a period of time.  I will say that the loss of my dear Sister and traveling companion affected me in many ways, and I was sort of sucked into myself dealing with loss (ps – it takes longer than you think, no matter how you try to intellectualize it). And of course as sisters go, I believe we were closer than most get an opportunity to be; having been roommates for many of our Senior years.

Anyway, now I am back and with brains and fingers working together with eyes and opinions bouncing around looking for a way to get out! I am once again committed to the daily review of left wing baloney and BS – after all, what’s more fun than picking apart left wing political philosophies! It’s a wonderful thing: that is of course unless it’s yours that’s being picked apart!!

And I salute the Washington Career Politicos to continue to chaff, gaff and help us laugh. Thereby providing fodder for the grist mill. Which of course ends when the mischief making is self destructive to our union!

And lately, one could spend days counting the bad ideas spewing from Washington!  Don think so? Well consider how many States have been reviewing the rules to withdraw from the “United” States as a precursor to an all out battle for the heart and soul of our beloved country. Who can blame “we the people” having suffered through all the Obama mischief making to void the constitution and make our country his kingdom!

All the government freeloaders finally outnumber those that prefer work. Yep those folks who don’t want to be in charge of their own lives; who want to be told what to do, what to think, what to eat….. you get the drift! The welfare Zombies. It’s just to bad that the freeloaders just don’t get it that, when to working people stop working there won’t be anyone to provide largess for the freeloaders!!

You think there may be a bit of rioting? Pissed off people when the stuff runs out? Duhhhhh!




Written by a female Obama supporter who voted for him for president.

Legitimate Question

This election has me very worried. So many things to consider. I voted for Obama. McCain was a Washington insider and we don’t need any more of them. I have changed my mind three times, since then. I watch all the news channels, jumping from one to another. I must say this drives my husband crazy. But, I feel if you view CNN, and Fox News, you might get some middle ground to work with. I started thinking “where does all the money come from for President Obama”? I have four daughters who went to College, and we were middle class, and money was tight. We (including my girls) worked hard and there were lots of student loans. I started looking into Obama’s history for my own peace of mind.

Around 1979 Obama started college at Occidental in California . He is very open about his two years at Occidental, he tried all kinds of drugs and was wasting his time but, even though he had a brilliant mind, did not apply himself to his studies. “Barry” (that was the name he used all his life) during this time had two roommates, Muhammad Hasan Chandoo and Wahid Hamid, both from Pakistan . During the summer of 1981, after his second year in college, he made a “round the world” trip. Stopping to see his mother in Indonesia , next Hyderabad in India , three weeks in Karachi , Pakistan where he stayed with his roommate’s family, then off to Africa to visit his father’s family.

My question – Where did he get the money for this trip? Nether I, nor any one of my children would have had money for a trip like this when they were in college. When he came back he started school at Columbia University in New York . It is at this time he wants everyone to call him Barack – not Barry. Do you know what the tuition is at Columbia ? It’s not cheap to say the least.

My girls asked me; where did he get money for tuition? Student Loans? Maybe it’s none of my business?

After Columbia , he went to Chicago to work as a Community Organizer for $12,000. a year. Why Chicago ? Why not New York ? He was already living in New York . By “chance” he met Antoin “Tony” Rezko, born in Aleppo Syria , and a real estate developer in Chicago . Rezko has been convicted of fraud and bribery several times in the past and in 2011.

Rezko, was named “Entrepreneur of the Decade” by the Arab-American Business and Professional Association”. About two years later, Obama entered Harvard Law School . Do you have any idea what tuition is for Harvard Law School ?

Where did he get the money for Law School ? More student loans? His family has no money that’s for sure.

After Law school, he went back to Chicago . Rezko offered him a job, which he turned down. But, he did take a job with Davis, Miner, Barnhill & Galland. Guess what I discovered? They represented “Rezar” which is Rezko’s firm.

Rezko was one of Obama’s first major financial contributors when he ran for office in Chicago . In 2003, Rezko threw an early fundraiser for Obama which Chicago Tribune reporter David Mendelland claims was instrumental in providing Obama with “seed money” for his U.S. Senate race.

In 2005, Obama purchased a new home in Kenwood District of Chicago for $1.65 million (less than asking price). With ALL those Student Loans – Where did he get the money for this property? On the same day Rezko’s wife, Rita, purchased the adjoining empty lot for full price. The London Times reported that Nadhmi Auchi, an Iraqi-born Billionaire loaned Rezko $3.5 million three weeks before Obama’s new home was purchased. Obama met Nadhmi Auchi many times with Rezko.

Now, we have Obama running for President. Valerie Jarrett, was Michele Obama’s boss. She is now Obama’s chief advisor and he does not make any major decisions without talking to her first. Where was Jarrett born? Ready for this? Shiraz , Iran ! Am I going nuts or is there a pattern here?

On May 10, 2008, The Times reported, Robert Malley advisor to Obama was “sacked” after the press found out he was having regular contacts with “Hamas”, which controls Gaza and is connected with Iran . This past week, buried in the back part of the papers, Iraqi newspapers reported that during Obama’s visit to Iraq , he asked their leaders to do nothing about the war until after he is elected, and he will “Take care of things”. What the heck does that mean?

Oh, and by the way, remember the college roommates that were born in Pakistan ? They are in charge of all those “small” Internet campaign contribution for Obama. Where is that money coming from? The poor and middle class in this country? Or could it be from the Middle East ?

And the final bit of news. On September 7, 2009, The Washington Times posted a verbal slip that was made on “This Week” with George Stephanopoulos. Obama on talking about his religion said, “My Muslim faith”. When questioned, “he made a mistake”. Some mistake huh?

All of the above information I got on line. If you would like to check it – Wikipedia, encyclopedia, Barack Obama; Tony Rezko; Valerie Jarrett: Daily Times – Obama visited Pakistan in 1981; The Washington Times – September 7, 2008; The Times May 10, 2008.

Now the BIG question – If I found out all this information on my own, Why haven’t all of our “intelligent” members of the press been reporting this? Is this a Kettle of Fish?? As Arsenio Hall would say.—-“HUMMMMMMM! Does something stink or is it my imagination?” These are legitimate questions for our president.

Pass along as is…


And of course, then, it only depends on exactly what your “it” is..

Just in case during your reading of my musings you haven’t realized it, the Pundit is a strict constructionist. As, in my humble opinion, if you have a document, containing set of precepts that have been proved, over time to allow freedom, while protecting the governed, that has built in checks and balances to discourage the usurping of power by any one branch, person or group and at the same allows for thoughtful and balanced governance. And includes the peaceful transfer of power from one group to another, one person to another, by the will of the people who exercise their vote. By gosh, by golly!!! You have a gem and need to keep it protected and safe!

And based on the latest activities in Washington by our Dictator in Chief, who is trying to jam socialism (then communism) down our freedom loving throats, I am happy to report that the attempt is beginning to stick in our freedom loving craws!! The great expectations and adoration what has been heaped on Obama is beginning to wane and more people every day are realizing that this dude has an agenda, one which we all object to (except for a few communists and other types who want to see the fall of the USA).

When I am contemplating the state of the union, I try to imagine Ben Franklin, or Patrick Henry, or George Washington and what they would be thinking and doing during these dangerous times. And so, like Patrick Henry, I have started by being a town crier and volunteered to do some phoning for group of patriots in a state where getting out the vote will mean electing a conservative, strict constructionist. It doesn’t matter that I am not residing in the state, but I can make a difference – or at least try!

So if things go the way I fear they will, since our Peoples have become lazy and slothful and the majority seem to want something for nothing, they will get nothing for something – their personal freedom!!


Call me a stickler, but I believe that the “Bill of Rights” was meant for everyone, and it’s especially for those with whom the majority may disagree. So, for the record, below is the short version: (click on “Bill of Rights” to get the full text!)











Having enumerated those rights above, I must say that as of late there have been seeing comments appearing across a variety of blogs and posts on the internet that question the rights of others that are writing and posting on the internet things with which they disagree.

Could anything posted on the internet be more dangerous than those who want to take away another authors right to post? Of course that would probably be close to impossible, but the very idea is alarming! Disagreement and debate is a necessary activity of a free people! And the internet has allowed peoples all over the globe to read and learn about the rights of others. So we must exercise CAUTION, and WISDOM, as if the rights of one person are threatened, it affects the rights of ALL people! So suggesting, even thinking of quashing debate…is a very, very slippery slope. As, who will decide what is acceptable and unacceptable?

Without a doubt, I believe that the situation we currently find ourselves in is exactly what our Forefathers had in mind when they wrote and adopted that venerated document  the BILL OF RIGHTS!

It is a double edged sword for us to proclaim freedom for ourselves and for those who agree with us, but leave out those that don’t have similar beliefs. This is certainly NOT freedom and especially not religious freedom! Are we Christians so insecure in our personal beliefs that we feel we have to control those that don’t share our beliefs?

I certainly hope not!!


As a Senior Citizen, it has never, not once in my entire 65 years occurred to me that we would be making a Presidential choice between a Conservative Republican and a Marxist Democrat. And if you had asked me even 4 years ago, I would have guffawed at the thought.

But, here we are. It has become evident that the “great” Obama has turned out to be a “Manchurian Candidate” and the only difference is that Obama is conscious of what he is doing, and the “candidate” was at least a brain washed pawn. Sadly, today the only “brain washed pawns” are the people who believed the “hope and change” line that pivoted Mr. Obama into the Whitehouse. Not the communists mind you, but the hopeful, and optimistic Americans in all walks of life that put their hopes into this President.

And, now I realize that truly, many of our young Americans have been brainwashed into believing that a basically communist social and governmental system can right all the wrongs, take care of all the problems, feed all the people without sacrifice, and not have those that were in power abuse it!! What a big order, and of course a farce! It is, I believe, unforgivable and cruel of their educators to allow this. However, I also know that it is not surprising that this “collective” philosophy is the rule of the day because teachers “unions” are powerful, and all teachers must conform. And given the reduced interest in such things by most Americans of any and all ages, (And that is one of the saddest statements that I have made.) “The great experiment”, as John Adams called the USA, may after all succumb to the rule of “the path of least resistance”.

So while I can still remember, I have found myself more and more saying, “it used to be”, “in my day”, “it wasn’t always” and a litany of other such remarks. And I work hard to instill the love of freedom in any and all youngsters that listen!


I think we could all agree that those of Liberal leaning are not the most subtle of folks. And this is especially so when they think they have a conservative target in their cross hairs! But unfortunately for them (and fortunately for us) their very zeal is that which usually is their undoing as they are attacking what they perceive as a weak target.

These last few weeks, their target of choice has been Rush Limbaugh, whom they believe would be run out of town on a rail, not to mention lose his very popular radio show for some comments he made about a certain Georgetown student! Why I understand that Gloria Allred even went so far as to suggest that he be arrested!

It amazes one that these same zealots loose their enthusiasm when it comes to an out of place comment that was made by one of their own!

The posturing all started of course over his comments on Sandra Fluke, and though the support for Rush was overwhelming, it never occurred to the liberal misogynists to simply look in their own backyard if they wanted to find some truly attack worthy misogynistic statements! How about Chris, Kieth both commentators!

What this pundit finds really amazing in this situation is that the “liberal” media types feel totally comfortable applying an obviously double standard – which reminds me of my father who when I was a little tyke used to say: “DON’T DO AS I DO, DO AS I SAY!”

Well I say conservatives have been quiet for to long and letting these doublespeak doofuses get away with bad politics, bad grammar and bad ideas!  It is too bad that the word conservative also means: marked by or relating to traditional norms of taste, elegance, style, or manners. It’s the only thing that keeps us from burying the left wing in rhetoric and pithy repartee surpassing their own pointed and somewhat lacking attempts at wit!!
