We are still without a winner, or even a serious guess as to who our mystery Hoosier baseball player is for Part 2 of the Hoosier Mug Shot Challenge. Update: tessa50 wins!
Go here to make a guess! I know that some of you may be hesitant and think that winners will be paid in merely virtual beer, but the truth is, winners will get actual beer just as soon as delivery becomes possible. In fact, we are in the process of buying beer for Freedom1781 and her hubby and root beer for their little girl this very week. Not because they won anything; just because they’re good folks and we happen to be in their neighborhood. Also, they forgot to pay the usual protection money to keep us from visiting. ;)
“In 2003, when he was an ambitious Illinois state senator from a hyper-statist district, Obama declared: ‘I happen to be a proponent of a single-payer universal health-care program. I see no reason why the United States of America, the wealthiest country in the history of the world, spending 14 percent of its gross national product on health care, cannot provide basic health insurance to everybody. . . . Everybody in, nobody out. A single-payer health care plan, a universal health care plan. That’s what I’d like to see. But as all of you know, we may not get there immediately.’ Continue reading
That’s assuming, of course, you can legitimately call Obama “a man.” After his recent cuddle-date with Chris Matthews, one wonders. There can be no doubt that America (and the world) would be better off if Nelson Mandela were President of the United States right now. Even dead. At least school children could visit the White House, and the destruction of America might take a brief pause. Breitbart’s Pollak makes the case: Image from WNB.
Breitbart.com, 6 Dec 2013: The comparison is so crude as to be laughable, but given the mainstream media’s immediate linkage of the two, and President Barack Obama’s insistence on talking about himself in his eulogy for Nelson Mandela, it must be said: Obama is no Mandela.
For one thing, their societies are different: the U.S. bears no resemblance to post-apartheid South Africa. For another, Mandela chose to govern differently from Obama in many key respects.
1. Mandela was a uniter, Obama is a divider. Mandela was not above playing racial politics at times, but generally did all he could to bring people together, in both real and symbolic ways. He famously donned the Springbok rugby jersey, once a symbol hated by blacks, to show solidarity with whites. Mandela left South Africa more united than when he took office. Obama will leave the U.S. more divided than when he began.
2. Mandela obeyed the constitution and the courts, Obama flouts both. Mandela not only signed a constitution that guaranteed individual rights and constraints on state power, but made an impressive show of subjecting his administration to the will of the courts. Obama, by contrast, is “becoming the very danger the Constitution was designed to avoid,” ignoring court rulings and greatly expanding his executive powers.
