Here, you are urged and encouraged to run your mouths about something important.

Before I comment on this, let me first say that Steve Doocy at Fox News is a class act all the way. That will become apparent at the end of this video clip. In any event, something very nefarious is afoot in this country. Last week, students were sent home for donning clothes that showcased Old Glory on Cinco de Mayo. Then, in the same area, a passenger in a vehicle waving an American flag had it ripped out of his hands and thrown to the ground by an hispanic student with baggy pants.

Now this. A young girl is chastised by her teacher for drawing the American flag - which included the phrase "God Bless America" - while that same teacher praised another student for drawing a picture of Barack Hussein Obama.


More on the previous infractions here and here.

If John McCain is such a hawk on the immigration issue, why is the most recognized immigration enforcement stalwart and sheriff in Arizona - Joe Arpaio - adamantly supporting McCain's opponent, J.D. Hayworth? The answer should be clear. McCain is a political animal and knows how to read the tea leaves being put on the table by the tea party. Prior to sowing up the 2008 presidential nomination, McCain talked tough on immigration because he was going head to head with opponents who were on the right side of the issue.

After securing the nomination, McCain drifted back to his La Raza supporting roots in an obvious attempt to garner hispanic votes. He also supported a path to citizenship in the immigration reform bill that was shot down by the American people in 2007. Now that he's in the battle of his political life with Hayworth, an immigration enforcement advocate, McCain is portraying himself as John "Tough Guy" in this new ad.

This is embarrassing. No, really.

One of those show excerpts you'll find yourself laughing at all the way through. When CNN's Rick Sanchez read aloud words from a teleprompter that were actually telling him what to do - not what to say - it was funny to be sure. Beck made it infinitely funnier on his radio show, pointing out other aspects of Sanchez's faux-pas.

After he's done poking fun at Sanchez over what is now known as the latter's "Ron Burgundy moment", Beck goes after Sanchez for how he covered the volcano eruption in Iceland. To be fair to Sanchez, I did see his explanation of that segment being rooted in a joke that was taking place off-air. That said, the funniest part of this clip has to do with Sanchez's contention that "Hawaii" is a "long word" compared to "Iceland". Beck nails him there, regardless of whether Sanchez was joking about not understanding how a volcano could erupt in a cold place like Iceland.

While the countries all across Europe are coming face to face with an economic black hole, the Barack Obama administration seems intent on hitching America's economic future onto their wagon. Enter conservative up and comer, Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) who has as good a grasp on economic principles as anyone - a reality that may catapult him into a field of future presidential candidates.

Ryan is young but his economic expertise may more than compensate for any experience concerns the former may illicit. Perhaps no one in congress may be able to more clearly enunciate the differences between capitalism and socialism which is always doomed to fail, whether viewed through a societal or economic lens.

Can you say, Ryan 2012? Yes, it's a stretch but in light of where we're headed economically, he may be the best possible candidate when the time comes.


Rush Limbaugh has said for nearly a year now that he is living inside Obama's head rent free. While giving the Hampton University Commencement speech on May 8th, Obama seemed to bolster that notion with one of the most bizarre statements he has uttered - and there have been many. As he spoke about the new media and the 24/7 news cycle, Obama singled out the iPad, the iPod, the Xbox and PlayStation.

Here is the money quote Obama delivered that is likely to have many people scratching their heads for several reasons:
"Meanwhile, you're coming of age in a 24/7 media environment that bombards us with all kinds of content and exposes us to all kinds of arguments, some of which don't rank all that high on the truth meter. With iPods and iPads; Xboxes and PlayStations; information becomes a distraction, a diversion, a form of entertainment, rather than a tool of empowerment. All of this is not only putting new pressures on you; it is putting new pressures on our country and on our democracy."
Information becomes a distraction? Isn't this the most visible president in American history? Isn't he on television every single day giving us all kinds of distracting information? What he really seems to be saying here is that when people are reading, watching, or listening to media that either doesn't involve him or portrays a negative image of him, it's a distraction from what HE wants you to be paying attention to - him, in the way he wants you to see him.

Drudge is linking to a New York Times article from 2009, which talks about how much Obama loved his Blackberry:
President-elect Barack Obama has repeatedly said how much his BlackBerry means to him and how he is dreading the prospect of being forced to give it up, because of legal and security concerns, once he takes office.

“I’m still clinging to my BlackBerry,” Mr. Obama said Wednesday in an interview with CNBC and The New York Times. “They’re going to pry it out of my hands.”
Gateway Pundit reminds us that Obama gave the Queen of England an iPod last year. In fact, that iPod also included two of Obama's speeches. Over at Weasel Zippers, it's noted that Obama's presidential campaign advertised on multiple Xbox games. Additionally, Obama at one point divulged the music he carried on HIS iPod.

This is beyond reproach. The iPod is apparently a distraction unless it contains information Obama wants you to have.
