Today's Scriptural Passage: Proverbs 26:1-3

As snow in summer, and as rain in harvest, so honour is not seemly for a fool.

As the bird by wandering, as the swallow by flying, so the curse causeless shall not come.

A whip for the horse, a bridle for the ass, and a rod for the fool's back.


That last verse tickles me every time I read it. I think it's evidence that God has a sense of humor. Am I warped for finding it funny?

Obama's 2012 Campaign Song

How D'ya Like Me Now?

I was always the lucky one.
Was my mother's favorite son.
She read to me from Marx and Chairman Mao.
My old man was an absentee,
A truly brilliant deportee,
But he was more than Kenya could allow.

I only wanted every spotlight on me.
More exaltation than the Trinity.
I only needed constant confirmation --
Applause for my innate divinity.

How d'ya like me now?
Now that I'm president?
Up here in the Black Howse,
Folks think I'm Heaven-sent.
Communistic policies
Are all I dream about.
Still don't know where I was born.
How d'ya like me now?

Money Well-spent

Taliban, criminals get $360 million from US taxes.

After examining hundreds of combat support and reconstruction contracts in Afghanistan, the U.S military estimates $360 million in U.S. tax dollars has ended up in the hands of people the American-led coalition has spent nearly a decade battling: the Taliban, criminals and power brokers with ties to both. 

I'm just glad we're paying them over there, so we don't have to pay them over here.

Robbing Peter to Pay Juan

Keeping the premeditated economic apocalypse in mind, I'm delighted that the Obama administration has found enough taxpayer dollars for funding community health centers for the treatment of "migrants" and "seasonal farm workers." Now I have a window of insight into the inner workings of "community organization," in which Obama prides himself as an adept. Our unborn great-grandchildren may be in debt when they first pop out of the womb, but at least the undocumented rapists and murderers and welfare cases and drunk drivers and fraudsters will have adequate, inexpensive health care. That's what matters most.

Serving illegal aliens is a conscious objective, as this comment demonstrates:

“Health centers do not, as a matter of routine practice, ask about or collect data on citizenship or other matters not related to the treatment needs of the patients seeking health services at the center,” Andrews said.

“The Program’s authorizing statute does not affirmatively address immigration status,” said Andrews. “Rather, it simply states that health centers are required to provide primary health care to all residents of the health center's service area without regard for ability to pay.”

Given that "illegal immigrants make up an estimated 25 percent of all migrant farm workers," the intent behind this magnanimity with other people's money becomes clear: aiding and abetting lawlessness. Not only does the federal government refuse enforcement of our nation's right and proper immigration laws, but it provides services for criminal aliens at your expense.

That's what I call compassion.
