Now THAT’S what I call a metaphor for Obamacare.

Optimism on Border Crossings

A Border Patrol agent reports that illegal border crossings have doubled since President Obama started hinting about pushing amnesty.

Don’t worry, it’ll drop again soon. Mexico can’t have THAT many people left in it.

California Ban on GPS

So, in California, you can’t use your phone’s GPS to get around. What is it with states failing financially interfering in your every day life? Is it they’ll hope you’ll be so annoyed by the small things like telling you how big your soda can be and how you’re allowed to drive your car that you’ll stop noticing how they’re failing in the larger areas? How about a new law: States aren’t allowed to pass laws on piddling crap issues until they get their economies in order. If you want to focus on annoying little things, then you fix everything else first. When the economy is booming and crime is under control, then you can pass laws on cellphones and plastic bags to your hearts content.

Though I’ll punch you in the junk for it. I need my cellphone GPS. If you have a problem with that, you shouldn’t have given me a car and a taste for freedom.

Obama Warned Us – Hope

Hope is the bedrock of this nation; the belief that our destiny will not be written for us, but by us; by all those men and women who are not content to settle for the world as it is; who have the courage to remake the world as it should be.

BARACK OBAMA, speech, Jan. 3, 2008

I liked J. Robert Oppenheimer’s version better: “Now I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds.”

Margaret Thatcher R.I.P.

I don’t really have any memories of Margaret Thatcher as prime minister. I was eleven when she left office. Of course, I was only nine when Reagan left office, but it’s a bit different when he’s the leader of your own country — plus all politics in America afterwards were very much influenced by him. What I do know about Thatcher is that whiny people really seemed to hate her, and there is no better aspiration for a politician than that.

Reagan and Thatcher seemed like quite a pair; they must have really given hope to conservatives that the biggest enemy of our countries — big government — could actually be tackled. We seem to have stumbled quite a bit since then, but it’s a good sign that even Democrats feel the need these days to pretend to like Reagan. I get the impression that in Britain, it’s not the same way with Thatcher. And that country is much worse off than we are. Someone can show you the way, buy you have to be man enough not to despise her for it.

White Males Compensate for Sexual Insecurity with Guns and Freedom

I have a new PJ Media column in which I explore how white males try to compensate for sexual insecurity with guns and freedom.

But the Childresses are right: Where guns are concerned, we have a white-male problem. And Karlin is correct that the root of that problem is sexual insecurity. To really understand this, we have to look at the history of sexual insecurity. Throughout most of history, men lived in harmony, hugging each other, playing in drum circles, eating organically grown food. But then several hundred years ago, sexual insecurity arose among white men. At first, all the white men did was kind of be quiet and curt with each other, but then finally one of them invented a solution to his insecurity: a gun. I believe the inventor’s name was Bob Gun — he named it after himself. And white males, upon seeing the new invention, said, “Well, this shall compensate for my lack of manhood. And now I will find people with darker skin than me and shoot them, because I am racist.” And then white males unleashed on the world massacres, genocide, arrhythmic dancing, mayo — you know, white people stuff. And all because white people tried to handle their sexual insecurity by owning guns.

Read. Enjoy. Learn. Eat (must supply own food).

Random Thoughts: Morality, Attractive Attorney Generals, and Roger Moore

Wow. That was pretty gruesome going through my tweets from a day the automatic spellcheck wasn’t working.

Yay. Reset Chrome and finally got the spellcheck redline back. I don’t like tweeting without a net.

If the solution to economy is having illegal aliens gay marry in ceremonies filled with assault weapons, we have a bright future ahead of us.

As a Christian, I want to judge people and force my morality on others, but the left have a monopoly on that 🙁

Nothing wrong with Obama’s compliment about the attorney general’s looks, but how he interrupted her shouting, “TAKE IT OFF!” was pretty bad.

Hillary Clinton seemed a lot more formidable before she was beaten by Obama and served unremarkably as Secretary of State.

This is so hypocritical. There were all those female attorney generals Obama called unattractive to their face and no one cared.

We probably don’t take the North Korean regime seriously enough considering its body count.

I tell every woman I meet whether I find her attractive or not. Women crave feedback.

I’m just kidding; I don’t know what goes on inside a woman’s brain. I swear half of it is a random number generator tied to mood.

I had the perfect murder planned until I accidentally live tweeted it.

I don’t think you can actually blow a guy’s head clean off with a .44 magnum; you need like a shotgun for that. CC: MythBusters

Nothing makes you feel like a real, professional writer like a royalty check.

Despite Obama’s reelection, people apparently still like books making fun of him.

Since this was way before my time, I have to ask: Did anyone really take Roger Moore seriously as James Bond?

Well, I guess “way before my time” isn’t quite true; I was six when the last of his films came out – but I was not the target audience.

Trippin’

Seems some folks are getting their panties in a wad over Mr. & Mrs. Shawn Corey Carter’s trip to Cuba. You may know the Carters as Beyoncé and Jay-Z. Or, you may not.

Mrs. Carter is the one called Beyoncé, in case you aren’t familiar. She’s a singer or something. She also acts. You may have seen her in the Austin Powers movie Goldmember where she played Tamara Dobson.

Mr. Carter is a singer and part owner of the Brooklyn Nets, a former ABA team.

Anyway, now that you know who they are, they’re catching a lot of grief over their trip to Cuba. They went for their fifth wedding anniversary.

“So, where do you want to go for our anniversary, Sweetheart?”

“Well, I’ve always dreamed of walking the streets of a city where there are chickens running around loose.”

“How about Cuba? Lots of places like that down there.”

“Perfect!”

Okay, maybe that’s not how it went, but then again, maybe it was. You don’t know.

A couple of Florida Congressmen (okay, a Congressman and a Congresswoman) are all up in arms over it, according to the Washington Post.

Personally, I don’t have a problem with their trip to Cuba. I’m all in favor of them going there. I’m even more supportive of them staying there.
