Obama's Special Olympics comment

In a preview of the Jay Leno taping, various people saw that, at the end of his 40-minute segment, he compared his bowling skills that of the Special Olympics.

Many people are outraged by this.

1. Will that be cut from tonight's broadcast?
2. Should it be cut from tonight's broadcast?
3. Are people just too senstive? Next, every Jerry Lewis movie ever made will have to be deleted!
4. Will people compare this gaffe to Limbaugh's saying Michael J. Fox faked his Parkinson's symptoms? One hopes not, since Limbaugh never said that - he merely said that Fox deliberately didn't take his medication so people could see what he looked like if he didn't take it. (And frankly, I'm with Fox on that. Anything you can do to get research to stop that or any other horrible disease.. stemcells or whatever, go for it.)

On a side note, the White House is going to start a garden to help stock the kitchens. How soon before they have cows and chickens, I wonder?

Does the treatment of Barack Obama resemble that of Hitler?

One should never make comparisons to Adolph Hitler lightly. Hitler was a vicious man who instigated the Holocaust - and to me the Holocaust means the Jews, the Gypsies, the Commies, the Gays, etc, everyone who suffered under Nazi regime.

But what is the one thing people said about Hitler, when the economy and later the war wasn't going well? He had great personal charm, he was able to inspire people (albeit by demonizing entire races of people - the Slavs, the Jews, the Gypsies), and when the country was falling down around their ears, the people never said - "It's Hitler's fault." No, they said, "If only Hitler knew what was going on, he wouldn't allow this."

Now, Bush was likened to Hitler by somebody for his at one time secret "renditions" - grabbing up people and imprisoning them without trial for years on end, etc., and frankly, I've got to agree that that certainly seemed like stormtrooper policy. But (yeah, I know there's always a but) he was doing it against terrorists who were out to *blow up* buildings and kill thousands of people.)

Now, can Obama be compared with Hitler? I think he can. Not for any policies that might lead to the destruction of peoples such as the Jews, but the fact that, no matter how incompetent the people around him look, he is not blamed. But the people around him are the ones he chose.

Camille LaPaglia had an article today in which she says she likes Obama, and blames the incompetence that's been on display in the last 50 days on the people surrounding him.

Then there's Warren Buffet and a few other guys. All of them emphasizing that they like Obama, they voted for Obama, they want Obama to suceed...but then go on to say that his economic policies are going to be disasterous for the country.

So all the criticism slides right off Obama, just as it slid right off Hitler. It's just the people surrounding him who are stupid...

Get out of jail -- paid

In England, as in the US, there is a dearth of prison space for inmates, so people are being let out early. As in the US as well, sometimes the people let free early should not have been. But, that's not the point of this article.

What is the point is that these people are let out of jail early because there's no room for them... yet they are being given the money it would have cost to keep them in jail.

Where is the savings in that? (There is none. 5 million pounds have been given to these criminals. Better than spending 5 million pounds on them in jail? No, because many of them simply reoffend when they get out, so they can be sent back to cushy prison, while the people they've harmed are left to try to recover as best they can.)

One would have thought that when criminals get out of jail, they return to their families and get on with their lives through local programs to help them. But to be "recompensed" for not being in jail any more? That's downright ludicrous!

Our Great God is not surprised...

Latest of many that occurs every day..

Man walked into a church during Sunday services, shot and killed the pastor, and then was subdued.

Here's what one of the religious folks had to say:

"Our great God is not surprised by this, or anything," Nate Adams, executive director of the Illinois Baptist State Association, said in a statement. "That He allows evil and free will to have their way in tragedies like this is a mystery in many ways. But we know we can trust Him no matter what, and draw close to Him in any circumstances."

So what's better to believe...that human beings are human beings, responsible for their own actions and with no greater power watching them by night and day, or...that there is a God.... who does watch every human being on earth every second of the day.... and lets an innocent person be murdered, an innocent baby be beaten to innocent woman have acid thrown in her face....thousands of people killed by a mudslide....millions of people killed by a "Holocaoust" ya da ya da ya da.

Frankly, I'd much rather believe there was no god (which I do), because if there is a god, what a sick god he is...

IN an interesting twist, the headline of the story is now changed. "Priest used bible to deflect first bullet."

But the other 3 got through and killed him.

To me, if I read a headline that says, "Priest used bible to deflect bullet," I'm thinking, well, they mention the bible and say he's a priest, don't tell me a miracle occured and the bible saved his life? Of course not, he still died! Why in the world have a headline like that!??? If you're trying to turn people to religion, that's surely not the way to do it!
