The Obama Lie Detector

Cannot resist passing this one along:
The Lie Clock

A man died and went to heaven. As he stood in front of St. Peter at the Pearly Gates, he saw a huge wall of clocks behind him.

He asked, 'What are all those clocks?'

St. Peter answered, 'Those are Lie-Clocks. Everyone on Earth has a Lie-Clock.

Every time you lie the hands on your clock will move.'

'Oh,' said the man, 'whose clock is that?'

'That's Mother Teresa's. The hands have never moved, indicating that she never told a lie.'

'Incredible,' said the man. 'And whose clock is that one?'

St. Peter responded, 'That's Abraham Lincoln's clock. The hands have moved twice, telling us that Abe told only two lies in his entire life.'

'Where's Barrack Obama's clock?' asked the man.

'Obama's clock is in Jesus' office.

He's using it as a ceiling fan.

Obamacare: The New Golem?

While we sleep safely in our warm beds, secure and oblivious in the comfort of our cozy homes, Congressional Democrats labor ceaselessly in a ancient ruined castle atop Capitol Hill. A wolf howls, the gloomy night darkens, storm clouds rage, and bolts of fierce lightening flash through the sky as they struggle with all their genius to create their newest vision...

Bride of Frankenstein: Above is what your health-care looks like after redesign by a congressional committee (with some assistance from their lobbyist/donor friends). Here is another image with the same message:

This flow chart shows the planned entrails, er... organizational structure of our new friend: Government-controlled Health Care. Click here to see the full-size version. Feeling dizzy yet?

"Watch, Igor, as I throw this switch and bring the monster to life!"

Mary Shelly's Frankenstein was a critique of scientific hubris, of the Scientist too blinded by his science and his Pride to realize until it was too late the Horror he was creating. Is FrankenCare (ObamaCare) the same sort of monstrosity, a product of Congressional and Political Hubris, an abomination created by those who thought they knew better, who viewed the voters as beneath them, a force merely to be tricked, bullshat, and coerced into compliance with the wiser vision created by the superior political class? Do they know better? Or are they blinded by their egotism and their pride?

Stop ObamaCare while we still have a chance

Worried about ObamaCare and those "lower premiums" you'll be paying for government-mandated health insurance? Why worry! I'm sure that the drug companies are lobbying for passage of Obamacare -- including up to $150 million spent for TV ads -- because they believe it will reduce their profits! Righto! Even if the drug companies want to turn the program into a new, porker-friendly, government-filled feeding trough, who am I to argue? This is one of the results of passing a bill designed in smoke-filled backrooms by cigar-chomping political hacks with no sense of real responsiblity to those who elected them.

Despite some small glimmers of hope this government-designed monstrosity is still being intended as law. Now is REALLY the time to let our representatives know how we feel, before they pass this Frankenstein's Monster in some midnight session. According to Michelle Malkin, there are new nationwide protests planned for August 22. From the protest site
Many of the original groups behind are joining together for the Nationwide Recess Rally. This is a collaborative effort to make it known that we will not stand for socialized, government controlled healthcare.

Barack's American Dream: Everybody gets a Handout.

For Barack Obama, the "American Dream" is: Everybody gets a Handout. The American citizen, great or small, black or white or latino, is just a larger version of Oliver Twist, holding his gruel bowl and asking, "Sir, could I have some more, please?"

Somehow this has never been my dream, or the dream of the America I knew. Is this the new America? Time will tell. Perhaps "what we inherited from our fathers we must earn again, if it's to be our own."

The American Dream?

The Founding Fathers beg for some more Gruel

The Modern Bloodletting, or, Dr. Obama Applies Energy Taxes

Here is my take on the new cap-and-trade energy taxes, whose final results will be showing up on our utility bills, and in the prices of anything which energy is used to produce, in the near future:

The Modern Bloodletting --or-- Dr. Obama's Urgent Care Technique:
Economicus: Help, I feel fainter, I am slipping away!
Dr. Obama: Quickly, Cut deeper! We must have more Taxes if we are to save him!

A hat tip to the headline of Louis Woodhill's recent article, Bleeding the Economy Back to Health, although his point seems a different one.

Another of Obama's Friends

Whatever else you can say for Obama, you sure can't say he chooses his friends well. First we had his racist and rather nutty mentor Jeremiah Wright, and his early political guiding light, Bill Ayers, the domestic terrorist. OK, fair enough. Now we find this unpresidential President using a prime-time news conference to defame the Cambridge MA police department for arresting his "friend" Harvard professor Henry Louis Gates. Obama admitted he didn't know the facts of the case, but went on to call the police "stupid" anyway. Yet from the police report it appears that his "friend" Gates was himself the one who acted stupidly, in fact like a stupid racist, interfering with a white police officer dispatched on report of a break-in into Gates home.

I don't know anything else about Gates, so unlike our President I won't jump to conclusions and say that he is a bigotted black racist, but his behavior on this occasion sure don't look too good. Read the full police report here, and make your own judgement. The police officer's response can be found here. Apparently Obama is now trying to provide cover for his own stupidity in making his initial remarks with his usual brand of wheedling backpeddling. Big O now claims that he didn't mean the police were stupid, just that they acted stupidly, or some half-assed bullshit along these lines. However, the point is that from the police report it appears Gates was the one who was out of line, not the cops. Why not spare us innocent parties the racism song-and-dance routine (we've heard it before) and just fess up that your friend acted like a jerk!

Kids, don't act this way at home..

The Famous Obama Poster

Famous Obama Poster BullshitThis is the famous Obama poster from his 2008 presidential campaign... with... err... some small changes to make it better reflect reality. Personally I like this better than Shepard Fairey's poster, but perhaps I'm biased.

Gallery Notes: Close observers of this work will note the recurrent theme of "bullshit," which plays the role of a subtle leitmotif in this artist's depictions of Barack Obama. These early graphic works led to his later absurdist installation "The Presidential Crap Machine" which combined a converted industrial-strength snow-blower, brown-dyed snow, and continuous video loop of Obama speeches.
