America’s Top Reading Award

Filed under: Politics — dangrdave @ 11:58 am

I liked seeing what Trint came up with to show the eloquence of O’ when he loses his place on the teleprompter (here).  It sort of reminds me of this scene in Billy Madison (here).

In related news, Fox has decided (here) that it won’t air Obama’s speech tonight; I guess they realize that ad revenue and sweeps are more important than showing footage of Obama flaunting his reading skills.

Getting the Scoop

Filed under: Knee-Slappingly Funny — dangrdave @ 1:33 am

This evening, I went with my wife and daughter to Baskin-Robbins, which, as everyone certainly knows, held its annual 31-cent scoop night tonight.  That’s right, tonight and tonight only, ambitious Americans have the unique opportunity to try a scoop of each of  Baskin-Robbins’ 31 flavors for the low, low price of only $9.61, excluding taxes!  Then, those same ambitious Americans will have another unique opportunity to spend the evening throwing up into their home toilets!  Fortunately for America, Baskin-Robbins had some misspelled cheaply printed papers taped to the windows that announced that customers were only allowed “three 31-cent scoop of ice cream.”  Alas, my dream of eating a bucket full of thirty-one flavors of ice cream at once will have to wait.

One unique thing that my wife and I noticed at Baskin-Robbins was that there were triplets working the counter.  That’s right, there were three red-headed guys wearing glasses who looked exactly the same.  As I never want to miss an opportunity for a good joke, I asked one of the guys, “Hey, are y’all triplets, or am I just seeing double?”  Perhaps the throngs of people with snotty faced kids standing in line,  yearning to ingest cheap ice cream, took some of the steam out of my humor.  I just got a nervous smile…the fellow was most likely feeling under the counter, to the left of the cashier’s dried booger-wipings, for the silent alarm.  Oh, well…at least I had my ice cream.  Now, if you’ll excuse me, I think I just realized that Americans don’t need 31 ‘scoop’ of ice cream to feel like throwing up!

A Fast Update

I am proud, as a Texan, to announce that Kay Bailey Hutchison will retain her title as the Senate’s Fastest Woman (here).  I am glad to hear the news, and equally glad that I did not see any coverage of the event that culminated in her title of ‘Fastest Woman.’  According to the Houston Chronicle write-up, Kay competed in a fundraiser race along with “lawmakers, reporters, judges, and White House officials in running shorts.”  Now, congressmen running around in shorts is just not a pretty picture (imagine Ted Kennedy’s hairy bleach-white legs for a moment).  There’s only one politician that America deserves to see flaunting some skin:

Blessed

Filed under: Seriously Serious Stuff — dangrdave @ 11:39 am

I just want to say that I pitty and pray for those who believe in abortion.  Since I’ve had my daughter, my life has been blessed beyond measure.  At what point did she become a “human?”  At the point of conception.  She always was and she always will be a human.  A human can only come from a sperm and an egg; the joining of these two things do not make something that ultimately one day turns into a human; they become a human at the moment they join and begin to grow.

Stand Up

Filed under: Politics,Seriously Serious Stuff — dangrdave @ 11:39 am

I wanted to throw out some props to Kathy Ireland, which is something I never imagined myself doing on my blog.  However, according to a recent article (here), Kathy has taken a bold stand in defense of unborn children.  I guess this technically puts Kathy on the DHS watch-list for being a potential recruit of terror who believes in the sanctity of life.  Despite the increased scrutiny that she will face, I am glad that people with convictions are finally beginning to stand up for truth.

Our nation is going in such a direction that we shun those who speak the truth and hold conservative values.  So, my encouragement to you is to stand up for your conservative beliefs and make them known before you no longer have the ability to do so.

I’ve recently watched a couple of World War II movies, particularly Life is Beautiful and The Boy in the Striped Pajamas, and I often find myself wondering how the Germans could allow their country to become a dark place where dissent was silenced and where wrong became right.  The only conclusion that I can find is that conservative people did not stand up for their beliefs; they silently sat by while raging liberals took away their freedoms and their voices.

Now, we may not ever be sending conservatives to concentration camps, but Americans are surely losing their freedoms and their voice each day that they sit silently by and allow a liberal onslaught to overwhelm them.  If we cannot be bold enough to stand up for our beliefs, we will find ourselves living in a modern-day Gomorrah with our children being taught and indoctrinated into the very things that we detest, by the very people that we do not agree with.
