A guy traveling through Mexico on vacation lost his wallet and all of his identification. Cutting his trip short, he attempted to make his way home but was stopped by the U.S. Customs Agent at the border.

"May I see your identification, please?" asked the agent.

"I'm sorry, but I lost my wallet," replied the guy..

"Sure buddy, I hear that every day. No ID, no entry," said the agent.

"But I can prove I'm an American!" he exclaimed.

"I have a picture of Ronald Reagan tattooed on one side of my butt and George Bush on the other."

"This I gotta see," replied the agent.

With that, the guy dropped his pants and showed the agent his behind.

"By golly, you're right!" exclaimed the agent. "Have a safe trip back to Chicago."

"Thanks!" he said. "But how did you know I was from Chicago?"

The agent replied, "I recognized Obama in the middle.

Where are Reagan, Nixon, Bush, Truman, FDR when we need them? They were men who understood executive leadership. Were they perfect? Of course not. But when called upon by unexpected and unpleasant events, they led. And they didn't spoon-feed us mushy mush and call it "bold vision."

Speaking of executive leadership and escaping the mush men, what happens when "Mama Grizzly" meets the Iron Lady? Are they perfect? Of course not. But they are no more Ivy League than were Truman, Reagan and Nixon. (Wouldn't you say, Cara Mia?)

Who'd have thought we'd miss the arrogant contempt George Bush showed for the Constitution and separation of powers. But great as the Constitution is as a guide there are times great Presidents step beyond it. Jefferson did and got us the Louisiana Purchase, Lincoln did and saved the Union, FDR did and prevented starvation and probable descent into anarchy.

If Obama had a pair he would have demanded that workers cleaning the Gulf have respirators and hazmat gear and that BP executives and anyone else interfering with that would be labeled a non-uniformed combatant and detained as such. Subjecting workers to exposure without protection is equivalent to a chemical attack on the United States. We don't know how many Vietnam vets died or live their lives in misery because the government lied about agent orange. We have the Gulf disaster because BP decided to take a chance in ignoring safety. Now they want to take a chance with our people's lives by ignoring safety because it would look bad to have people in hazmat suits. They are willing to wait and see just how sick people will get and how long it will affect them. A responsible President would back the people not BP, even if he had to push Constitutional boundaries to do it.

Well Obama just got BP to pony up 20 Billion into a fund that will be administered by Fiengold? How much would W Bush and Cheney have gotten from THEIR PALS in the oil industry?

"Obama could also propose an increase in the federal gas tax, to help pay for years of cleanup in the Gulf, beef up enforcement of drilling regulations, and fund subsidies for new energy development. If the goal is to break America's dependence on oil--and reduce the need for risky practices like deepwater drilling--then higher gas taxes are a logical step, supported by many tax and energy analysts and even some automaker CEOs. But this is another shell game. An increase in the gas tax, of course, would be politically explosive, especially since Obama has pledged no new middle-class taxes. So he's likely to keep telling us we should use other kinds of energy without taking the bold steps that would make it happen. He'll also probably avoid any sanctions on BP that could be passed on to consumers via higher prices. We wouldn't tolerate it."

Don Smails said - Barack Obama makes Jimmy Carter look like Harry Truman.

Wha.....? Harry Truman was a haberdasher. Jimmy Carter was a peanut farmer. So,......Obamugabe is a well dressed peanut head?

All I know is Jimmy goes to sleep with a smile on his face knowing he's no longer the worst US president in history.

This is the exact opposite of leadership Obama is desperate for something,anything, BP knows it and he jumped at the first bone they threw his way.Its the presidential version of a stupid pet trick.

TAXATION WITHOUT REPRESENTATION: What is really disturbing is this "fund" that Obama has coerced BP to cough up $20 billion dollars. Since when can the President force a corporation or anyone to fork over billions to the government? That is taxation without representation. Only Congress can pass tax legislation and the President has no authority to raise revenue whatsoever. Never before in the history of this country has a President took it upon himself to coerce a corporation to hand over billions to the government. This is an outrage and a perversion of our Constitution.

Ok, then how can the President force BP to cough up $20 billion dollars? Do we or don't we have a Constitution? Since when can the President raise revenue from the Oval Office by bringing CEOs into the WH and coercing them to fork over the money to the Federal government. Is this something they do in Chicago? This really stinks.

You mean a President with a parent naturally born in Kenya, a President able to hypnotize Americans into accepting this Constitutional conundrum, Republicans terrified that Libworld might call them "birthers"?

That President? Come, come. Punking out the Constitution with a corporation, even one that gave a million dollars for his election? That's a problem for him? That's cake. Americans have already shown him how seriously they take their own Constitution. Barry likes cake.

Some speculation and evaluation of the BP gusher :

http://motherjones.com/blue-marble/2010/06/worst-already-true-BP-well-now-unstoppable

It is believed that the rate of flow will increase, possibly to 150,000 barrels a day. According to this, BP is gone as a company, and execs are posturing themselves so as to escape litigation and personal loss. They are comparing this to Chernobyl. The Gulf would be a dead zone for years to come, with no hope of returning business.

They have taken the position that opening up the riser, would prevent further erosion at depth, and possibly fracturing that would lead to oil and gas escaping through fissures into the water that would be unstoppable. This gives them more time to drill before the entire well system fails.

They are wondering why more relief wells are not being drilled since if the two they have fail, it would take months again to drill new ones.

Truther

Lieberman and Rockafeller are cosponsoring a bill to allow the WH to stop all Internet traffic at the press of a button. Such a level of control is always a danger - like shutting off the water supply all over the country at once.

What the public needs is a decentralized network that cannot be shutoff. If public utilities want more security, that is one thing, but to stop all information flow, reducing the US to China or worse, is unthinkable. HISPEED PACKET is the answer, or a public constellation of satellites. Why not start immediately?

LOL, Ann Coulter's analysis of the SC senate primary is spot on. See here:


ALVIN GREENE: THE MOST QUALIFIED DEMOCRAT I'VE EVER SEEN
June 16, 2010


Democrats have decided that Alvin Greene's surprise victory in the South Carolina Democratic senatorial primary must be the result of a Republican dirty trick.

Greene beat Vic Rawl, a former state representative and judge, with a whopping 60 percent of the vote in last Tuesday's primary, despite Greene's having no job, no house, no campaign website, no campaign headquarters -- indeed, no campaign. Other than paying the $10,000 filing fee, Greene seems to have put no effort into the race whatsoever."

[snip]


Rep. James Clyburn, D-S.C., has demanded that the U.S. attorney investigate, ominously suggesting that Greene may be a Republican plant. Clyburn is the third-ranking Democrat in the House.

[snip]

They're hopping mad, these liberals, but it's not clear what their theory of the crime is. Before accusing Republicans of committing a dirty trick, apparently no one asked the question: "OK, but what was the trick?"

The key to Greene's victory, you see, is that he got more votes. How do liberals imagine Republicans pulled that off? Mesmerize the Democrats into voting for an idiot? If Republicans could do that, John McCain would be president. (ROFL!)

The Greek Football team is playing with a lethargy that suggests that they need foreign players to come in and play their games for them.

They already have a German coach which doesn't seem to help much. And they have German taxpayers financing their retirement.

This team they have on the field looks like they are prematurely retired.

Sad, the state of the erstwhile cradle of civilization. Something definitely NOT to be emulated.
