Kim (Ace) Jong Il

One of the nuts that drove the Axis of Evil recently passed away. North Korean strongman, and 'Dear Leader', Kim Jong Il reportedly died due to "working too hard". I'll leave it to others to write his history, I'll stick to sports.

Yes, KJ was one hell of a sportsman. He holds records in golf that may never be equaled. In 1994, during his first round of golf on a regulation golf course, he scored 11 holes-in-one! And, carded an amazing 38 under par!

Why haven't the PGA and the sports world in general given this man his due? He had dozens of witnesses (his personal bodyguards) to that round, but he still is not in the record books? He probably never went pro because he was busy despoting and tyranting and such.

Let's open the door of friendship with North Korea, and admit that KJ Il was the greatest golfer of all time!

That Uppity Cain!

I suppose when a candidate has absolutely no record to convince voters that he deserves to be reelected he must constantly try to defame the other candidates. President Obama has only Seal Team Six to thank for anything "he" has accomplished in his first term. So, Obama's minions and the main stream media (redundancy alert) have one chance in hell at reelection.... by destroying the reputations of any serious challengers.

Not content with allowing the sketchy public records of the Republican field to sink themselves, certain operatives have resorted to the lynching of Herman Cain via biased media outlets. A steady parade of dead beat women have been trotted out with claims against Cain. The media has ran with these stories despite a lack of proof, witnesses, or evidence.

Two decades ago Clarence Thomas, another conservative black man, faced bogus claims of a sexual nature as he was being nominated to the Supreme Court. The liberal, main stream press have no problems painting a conservative black man as some kind of sex maniac who can't control his animal urges.

As long as blacks know their place, and stay on the Democrat plantation, they will be built up, not torn down, by the liberal press. If a conservative black had committed even one of Jesse Jackson's public gaffes, he would have been banished to Antarctica long ago.

Corporate Jets are Killing U.S. Economy

Just five or six months ago Barack Obama floated a budget that raised the debt by ten trillion dollars over the next decade. The Senate shot it down 97-0. No one in the mainstream media has mentioned it since. Now, Obama is all about cutting debt... mainly by increasing revenue. Revenue is how Progressives pronounce the word 'taxes'.

Instead of bringing real solutions to our staggering debt, Obama and the rest of the Progs are more concerned with their reelection chances. They constantly pander to the clueless hordes of the entitlement society. Their latest talking point is the term 'corporate jets'. The evil corporate jets must be taxed to keep our country from defaulting!

Sure, Progs, go ahead and take away the rapid depreciation write offs for corporate jets. That would be less than a billion in 'revenue' against the 15+ trillion we're in debt now. But the liberal leaders know they can count on their base of non-taxpayers to swallow this whole.

The leaders of the liberal/progressive/socialist movement want increased class warfare and wealth envy. It's the one thing they can count on their base to buy into. Rich people are evil, tax dodgers... especially the ones in this administration, but that's another story.

The polls are showing Obama losing in 2012 to any Republican with a pulse, so expect this administration's "us vs them" message to get louder and louder. Obama has no accomplishments to get him reelected, so his message is that if you want to keep getting those government checks (like close to 50% are now) every month, you better vote for him.

The Unprogressive Progressive

Most rational people know that job creation is almost non-existent because employers will not hire people right now due to uncertainty about the future. They don't know what the tax structure will be in two years, they don't know if they will be forced to supply healthcare, and they have no idea if the EPA will backdoor cap and trade sanctions on them. They simply will not hire new people as long as the current administration continues to foist unpopular, anti-business, socialism upon them.

Earlier this week President Obama tried to blame ATMs and airport self-serve kiosks for high unemployment numbers; as if ATMs are displacing bank tellers. He can not possibly be that stupid, but he evidently believes his supporters are. As usual the main stream media overlooked this outright lie. Imagine the uproar if Sarah Palin uttered the same inanities as the man from Harvard.

The number of bank tellers is steadily rising, and the Bureau of Labor statistics predicts "favorable" job prospects for tellers over the next decade. So, try again, sir. Perhaps, your base will believe that the automobile industry is keeping all of the blacksmiths out of work. Or, the light bulb factories are responsible for all the candle makers currently on unemployment.

A Trip to The Post Office

Let me say first that I have not been to the Post Office in several years. I have a personal mail box at a private postal service, Postal Pal, which has excellent service. Yet, somehow, in this age of direct payments, I found myself in need of one stamp the other day.

I was close to the Post Office on Rivers Avenue in North Charleston. I last visited there more than ten years ago; you know, back when they still had stamp machines that took cash. As I pulled in, I noticed the lot was almost full, except for the three handicap spaces up front. Three? No matter, all I needed was the one stamp, I'd pop in and out in no time.

Upon entering the lobby, I spied the new fangled, postage machine, with fully functioning side scale. After waiting for the golden-ager ahead of me to complete his business, I stepped up and began touching the touch screen. Oh, by the way, it doesn't dispense stamps, it prints out the amount like a postage meter.

After the mini-ordeal of five or six screens to buy a stamp, the last screen said insert credit card. Great! I don't carry a wallet. I just leave my license, cards, etc in my car's console until I need them. So, back outside to get a credit card, back by the three, still vacant, handicapped spots, back by the twenty people still waiting for the next available USPS clerk, back inside to wait behind the three people who were once waiting behind me at the postage machine.

Now that I know that I need to bring a credit card to buy a forty-four cent stamp I probably won't be back, but I do love that postage dispenser. Just one thought for the highly efficient folks in postal blue.... Why don't you put up a couple of signs that say, 'No Cash, Credit Only'!

NWO at the DOJ

Should an outfit as huge as the United States Department of Justice be using some globalist, new world order, mumbo jumbo dogma as its slogan?

Last summer the DOJ took the US flag, and eagle, off its letterhead, and, off the home page of their website. The new letterhead is black and white, while the web page looks like one of the free options from Google Blogger. Oceanic Blue?

More disturbing than removing any hint of Old Glory is the addition of a globalist quote to prominence on the DOJ's public face. "The common law is the will of mankind, issuing from the life of the people." This globalist (I say, communist) double speak is credited to C. Wilfred Jenks.

Jenks was a lawyer for the International Labor Organization during the last century. Some of the ILO's great ideas were placing the first Soviet senior member of the UN, giving Palestine observer status in the UN, and making anti-Israel announcements. The ILO was so leftist that the US withdrew from them back in the 1970s.

Apparently, they are leaning just left enough for the Obama administration to plaster one of their leader's quotes all over our "unbiased" Department of Justice.
