Tyranny


Obama: Re-cutting the Constitution to suit his own whim and to try and cynically bait the Republicans into action that will be politically damaging to them. Barack-the-Compassionate? Will that be his legacy. If you listened to that speech without the slightest bit of insight and historical context, maybe. In the harsh light of reality -- no.


The real question is whether or not Republicans will take the bait, or if they will maturely and responsibly move forward, generally ignoring Barack-the-Malicious Narcissist.

Who Discovered the Americas?

President Barack Obama has long asserted that Muslims built America - and maybe that's part of what he means when he says, "You didn't build that!" Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan is echoing the same sentiments here (FOX News), as he asserts that Muslims, not Vikings, Spanish, Irish monks or Portuguese people discovered America. 
"It is alleged that the American continent was discovered by Columbus in 1492," Erdogan said. "In fact, Muslim sailors reached the American continent 314 years before Columbus, in 1178."
Some say it was Columbus, Muslims say it was one of their own (but they
don't know 'who') that discovered America
Does Erdrogan have proof?  Let's just say that he has as much proof as President Obama has -- and we will tread softly on the feelings of Muslims here at Virtual Mirage, because they are easily bruised. If I wasn't delicate about it, the Religion of Peace would declare jihad on me -- oh, they already have. Never mind. I forgot, I'm an American and live in "the Great Satan".

If you'll reflect back to last week's post about Kennewick Man (link), it's relatively clear these days that people have been crossing the Atlantic and Pacific for at least the past 9,000 years, as they were want to do. The technology has been in place at least that long. So there's nothing to suggest that rag heads didn't cross the ocean to the Americas at some point.

So why do these comments by President Obama and Prime Minister Erdogan rise to the level of being blog-worthy? Maybe because they were intended to be obnoxious.

Obama-the-Muslim, still hasn't discovered
America

Is it a Golf Thing?

I am not a golfer. I'd rather shoot skeet. So maybe I don't understand this. Perhaps y'all can explain it to me. (the y'all is because Jenny would like me to speak Texan properly - even though I'm not in Texas...)

Black golfer Charlie Sifford is to receive the nation's highest civilian honor, the Medal of Freedom, for being a black guy who golfed. It will take place, November 24 during a ceremony at the White House.

I don't know Charlie Sifford, and I'm glad that he likes to golf. The president also likes to golf, and it makes a type of synergy when the golfing president gives a golfer a medal for being a golfer...I guess.

This is one of those medals that the president can hand out to anyone because he's the president. I could get one for wearing a viking helmet at a Minnesota football game, for example - or for winning a pie eating contest at a church social. The president picks the criteria.

The Medal: 

Awarded for"An especially meritorious contribution to the security or national interests of the United States, world peace, cultural or other significant public or private endeavors."

Mother Teresa, heads of state, etc. have received the medal. I don't think that it's been awarded to a golfer before so it must have something to do with "love of the game"? If it's a racial thing why not Tiger Woods? He's more racially blended to Barack and is a better golfer, and had an extremely hot Swedish wife. Maybe that's the problem...he's heterosexual and he's a better golfer than Barack? Edgar Bronfman received the medal for being rich and Jewish (he's dead now) so maybe it's along the same lines.

I'm only trying to make sense of things that are going on in the White House these days. Barack humiliates himself in China and now he is handing out a really cool medal to a guy because he's a negro and he is a golfer, right after he makes all of the illegal aliens legal and affords them all the rights of citizens, even though he has no Constitutional authority to do so.
