Little Barry never won an award in school. He wasn't the fastest, he couldn't jump the highest and he certainly wasn't the smartest. Fame and awards alluded him. He was angry (see left)!!
However that never stopped our favorite narcissist. He became Barack HUSSEIN Obama. And while the allusion to the first Imam of Islam was appealing, there was no bling to go with it...until he became President. Then he trotted off to Saudi Arabia where King Abdullah dutifully draped a gold chain with a medal attached around his neck in an expression of appreciation for his...election. See, Barry did something no other half black person ever did and he received a medal for it.
And as nice as the Saudi medal is - complete bling and purest gold, he still wasn't anywhere caught up to the competition (see below) because you can't be a proper potentate without a lot of medals. No matter that you didn't earn any of them and in fact either bought them or awarded them to yourself. They look good. His latest award, the Nobel Medal for keeping the peace during the first week and a half of his presidency, will be yet another bauble he can strut about in his never ending quest for parity with Gaddafi (Libya), the late Doctor and President-for-Life Edi Amin Dada (Uganda), Party Secretary Leonid Brezhnev and others of their stripe.
One Question -
Is the medal as sweet when you buy it as it is when you earn it? Barry - can you weigh in on this discussion and let us know how it feels? Oh, never mind. You haven't earned anything. How could you possibly respond? Keep on sending out the bribes for medals because you're way behind Col. Gadaffi - who by the way told us in the UN last week that he's happy you're the US president. It seems you have a lot in common.

Welcome to Virtual Mirage
"But I don't want to go among mad people," Alice remarked.
"Oh, you can't help that," said the cat. "We're all mad here. I'm mad, you're mad."
"How do you know I'm mad," asked Alice?
"You must be," said the cat, "or you wouldn't have come here."
Virtual Mirage - What's on the other side of the mirror? Ask Alice how deep the rabbit hole really goes.
This blog is an extension of MY JOURNEY because sometimes my journey needs more explanation, and sometimes there is more to be said than can be expressed on one ordinary blog.
Sometimes it's politics (very serious), sometimes I address the human condition with a dose of humor, and other times it may seem as if the track is headed in a unique direction. I can be a complicated guy at times.
There are a few things you'll find I consider:
* Absence of proof is not proof of absence.
* Sometimes the questions are complex but the answers are simple.
* Love is the only condition where the happiness of another person is essential to your own.
* Steers do not sign treaties with meat packers. (think on that)
* Taxes are NEVER levied for the benefit of the taxed.
* The purpose of fighting is to win. There is no victory possible in defense.
WHITE POWDER (Novel)
There is something intoxicating about a secret.
THE OLD WHORE (NOVEL)
In the peculiar culture of the Central Intelligence Agency, "old whores" are people who will do whatever it takes to get the job done, irrespective of the cost.
EXILES FROM EDEN (NOVEL)
Sparks fly as two star-crossed lovers meet. He runs toward trouble as she yearns for something missing. And it ends in a flight from and toward justice.
Today, I balance work and play as much as anyone can. All things remaining equal, play is more important. Life is short - it's important to make every day count for something, if only to yourself.
I'm a former tinker/tailor/soldier/sailor who has now decided that maybe it really wasn't all done for nothing.
