    401st Obama fundraiser, singer belts out, ‘Signed, Sealed, Delivered’
    Vacationing President Obama is hosting his 401st fundraiser Monday night on Martha’s Vineyard, Mass., continuing his record-setting pace that has had him collecting checks from donors at events on average every five days since becoming president.

    I hate having to post stuff like this,but its about all he does.

    • Hey! Anthony Esolen is one of my heroes! He’s written some really good stuff on how our culture has screwed all our young people via the death of innocence, sexual rev, war on boys, etc. I’ll have to look into this book.

    “I found, as somebody from Hawaii, the water is still a little cold,” he said as the crowd laughed, although he acknowledged that the weather was nice.
    “It’s really wonderful to be at Martha’s Vineyard, especially when the weather is this good,” he said.
    Obama also told the guests that the first family spent time with some seals on the beach

    As my wisened grandfather used to say,(among myriad other things):
    ‘some people would gripe if they were hung with a new rope and kicked with an old boot.’

    Watters’ World visits Martha’s Vineyard to see if they still love Obama, finds out Obama has brought world peace

    I know these ‘man-on-the-street gags are highly edited,but the fact these mopes are waiting to vote for the “first woman president” to once again,make history” is terrifying.

    Y’all, I was invited to guest post at a blog run by some theologian best friends of mine. One is rather liberal, one rather more moderate, so I round us out as a bit more conservative. Anyway, their blog is about Theology and theological themes as seen in (American) Pop-Culture. I was invited to write something on the show Supernatural. So, if you’re familiar with the show, go check out my guest post:

    OH BEHAVE: Obama Makes Surprise Appearance to Kick Off Gay Games

    President Obama made a surprise video appearance at the opening ceremonies of the 2014 Gay Games in Cleveland on Saturday. Joining Greg Louganis, Lance Bass, the Pointer Sisters, and Broadway’s Andrea McArdle and Alex Newell in celebrating the event, Obama said, “Since 1982 the Gay Games have given lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender athletes and supporters around the world a chance to come together to compete, celebrate, and inspire others.”

    Maybe if we started the “straight games” we’d get as much attention as the 3% of the population who flaunt their ‘alternative lifestyle.’ I dare not get any more descriptive than that.

    Running as a Dem, sounding like a Republican
    It’s one thing for Democrats running in red parts of the country to sound like Republicans on the campaign trail. It’s another when Democrats running in purple or even blue territory try to do so.

    Yet that’s what’s happening in race after race this season.
    Faced with a treacherous political environment, many Democrats are trotting out campaign ads that call for balanced budgets, tax cuts and other more traditionally GOP positions. Some of them are running in congressional districts that just two years ago broke sharply for president Barack Obama.

    they see the polls.They know Barry is sacrificing their careers on the altar of his inflated ego.
    Too bad they don’t have the guts to march to the Spite house and demand his resignation the way the republicans did to Nixon.

  10. Cops shoot and kill dude holding air rifle that was for sale in a Walmart. He says: “It’s not real.” Cops think he said “Eat lead, Coppers.” Or something. Tell him to “get down” after he’s dead.
    Beaver Creek is a well-to-do Dayton suburb. It’s not like it’s Memphis or Chicago.
