Leany on Life -- March 2014

I may not agree with your opinion, but I will defend to the death my right to ridicule it.

Meanwhile, over in an Alternate Universe

Forever Wednesday

Billy Shakespeare once said "There is nothing new under the sun." True it is.

I really don't need to post new material every Wednesday; I've posted enough to show you the correct viewpoint on whatever comes up. But even if the news is always the same, you like to have a fresh clean newspaper with breakfast every day.

Clicking the "Billy's Blog" button to the left will deliver a fresh old post right to your screen. No matter how old it is, it will probably be relevant to what's happening today.

Today's Second Amendment Message

What to do until the Blog arrives

The John Galt Society

It can be discouraging to look around at who's running the show these days and wonder "Where have all the grown-ups gone?"

Take heart. There are still some people who are not drinking the Kool-aid. Here's where to find them. I would suggest going down this list every day and printing off the most recent articles you haven't read to read over lunch.

Michelle Malkin
Michelle Malkin is a feisty conservative bastion. You loved her book "Unhinged" and you can read her columns here.
Ann Coulter

Ann posts her new column every Thursday, or you can browse her past columns.
George Will
What can you say? It's George Will. Read it.
Charles Krauthammer posts every Friday. Just a good, smart conservative columnist.
If you want someone who gets it just as right, but is easier to read, try Thomas Sowell, who just posts at random times.
Jonah Goldberg seldom disappoints.
David Limbaugh carries on the family tradition.

Jewish World Review has all these guys plus lots more good stuff.

Or you can go to radio show sites like
 Laura Ingraham's or Glenn Beck's or Rush Limbaugh's..

If you'd like you can study The Constitution while you wait.

Then there's always TownHall.com, NewsMax.com, The Drudge Report, FreeRepublic.com, World Net Daily, (which Medved calls World Nut Daily), News Busters, National Review Online, or The American Thinker.

For the Lighter Appetite

If you have to read the news, I recommend The Nose on Your Face, news so fake you'd swear it came from the Mainstream Media. HT to Sid for the link.
Or there's always The Onion. (For the benefit of you Obama Supporters, it's a spoof.)

Dave Barry's Column
Daryl Cagle's Index of Political Cartoons
About half of these cartoonists are liberal (Latin for wrong) but the art is usually good. (Fantastic, if you're used to the quality of art on this site.)
Another Cagle Index
Townhall Political Cartoons
In case you want cartoons that are well-drawn and don't make your jugular burst.

Or just follow the links above and to the right of this section (you can't have read all my archived articles already). If you have read all my articles (you need to get out more) go to my I'm Not Falling For It section.

Above all, try to stay calm. Eventually I may post something again.

The Litter-ature novel is here. I update it regularly--every time Rosario Dawson tackles me and sticks her tongue in my ear.

And the blah-blah-blog continues . . .

Flight 370 Update
Here's everything we know about the missing Malaysian Flight 370:


That's it. That's what we know. Feel free to look at this same update anytime in the future.

We don't know one blessed thing. I'm betting money that we never will. But that doesn't keep people from wildly speculating.

Toon time!

Dignity Schmignity
I got wind of Obama doing something with Zach Galla . . . Gallopin . . . Goofusalumpus . . . some guy, so I asked Uncle Google about it. All I could find was this spoof interview where they put together clips of someone like he's really interviewing a person like this:

I wondered how in the Utah they could get those clips of Obama, and I searched and searched to find the real interview that spoof was made from.

I have fallen down a rabbit hole.

I hesitate to report this, because I feel like that person that buys the hoax everybody knows is a hoax . . . but . . . but . . . it would seem at this point in my investigation . . . all indications I have been able to find point to the fact that Obama might have actually done that interview.

I'm not 100% on this yet; I still hold out hope that the President of the United States isn't a complete horse's arse . . . but if it is a killer hoax all the news outlets are in on it.

Reports are—and I say it that way to give the White House the benefit of the doubt—that the White House defended the decision to do the interview.

Asked whether Obama's appearance on the "show" was beneath the office of the president, Carney said he did not think so, saying "we made the right call here."
You know I like humor as much as the next guy. Just look at the hilarious stuff I write here!


But the Office of the President isn't really the place for that. It's like that episode of Seinfeld where Kramer makes a salad while naked in the shower. There are some things you do in the bathroom, other things more suited for the kitchen.

Splling Erorrs
The way I even came across that story was I saw a cartoon with an aide telling Obama "the good news is they didn't make you spell . . . " Galifalinakusupulous . . . whatever his name is.

So I asked Uncle Google about Obama and spelling. I finally came across the story about Obama trying to spell Respect, like from the Aretha Franklin song.

Okay, whatever, people goof up sometimes.

The obvious point is that nobody talks about it when Obama does it. Every single time Bush said "Uh . . ." it was front page headlines. "Bush Is Stupid." Letterman would run the clip over and over and over again. And you're still hearing about Dan Quayle.

Here's a fact: Bush is more intelligent than Obama. If you think that's not true you haven't been paying attention and, beyond that, are weak minded because you believe what the media has been feeding you.

Here's a great line from the move Jack Reacher (and the book One Shot). Training can take someone who isn't smart and make them seem smart.

That's Obama. The man is freaking clueless. But he has trained in the art of speaking well.

Anyone can recite poetry; that doesn't make him a poet.

The man is a freaking idiot.

Stand up or keep your head down?
That's a good segue (or Segway, as "Ron" might say) into this topic: do you stand up against evil or just keep your head down?

I've flapped my gums to you about this before. Dennis Miller talked about it in the context of praising Dick Cheney (more below). He said, "I'm telling you, when it gets ugly, I'm gonna lie."

Smart strategy, actually.

Right now I can still call Obama an idiot. He is an idiot, but I can still say that because . . . well, because I'm a nobody and nobody reads this blog. Do you honestly think we still live in a country so different from Peron's Argentina where you can criticize the King and not have consequences? Again, you have not been paying attention.

At some point the Sam Adams question will come up. Do I stand up for what's right (even though it's futile) or do I protect my family and just keep my head down?

The point of this post was that that question is the theme of two plays: A Man for All Seasons and Sound of Music. In both cases the guy took the hard route.

Sorry . . . I'm boring myself. This topic deserves a better treatment than I'm giving it.

This is like what Stanley Kubrick did. Who would have guessed that anybody could make nudity so boring?

Almost Done
Dick Cheney is a great American. If you disagree with that you have a weak mind.

Anyone who hates Dick Cheney obediently does because they've been told that they do. The cross-eyed goat doinkers in the media have told them over and over and over again what an evil person Dick Cheney is. They can't site one single reason to dislike the man. But if you have no more brain power than the average mutt the second you hear his name you have the pavlovian response to say "Evil!"

Si vis pacem, para bellum
Here's the paradox: You say "But . . . but . . . but . . . Obama doesn't like war! He'll keep America out of war!"


The fact is that Obama's policies make wars more likely.

The way you avoid war is to make it the least attractive alternative for the enemy. Obama is a wuss. Can we just agree on that? He is a estrogen-soaked pantywaist beta wuss. He is exactly the kind of prissy pansy that invites attacks from bullies.

Anatomy of a Feckless Presidency
Read this article in the Wall Street Journal. You know the deal; the link's not going to work. Just Google "Anatomy of a Feckless Presidency"

I don't know what feckless means, but it sounds naughty.

Ann Coulter
Obviously one of the best take on the Ukraine deal comes from Ann Coulter who took a break from talking about immigration this week.

On the topic of Ann Coulter's timely posts . . . sorry, I know, I missed a week. I'm surprised the cosmos survived that disturbance in the force. I went to Vegas on Wednesday and had the notes all ready to go Tuesday, but didn't get them polished up and posted. That's what accounts for the material being old this week.

More toons of those idiots Obama and Kerry trying to deal with big boy issues

I love that I can still call Obama an idiot without having my door kicked in.

Enjoy it while it lasts.

I'm not kidding.

And I'm not crazy.

What? You think we fixed the glitch that allowed that to happen every other time infantile egomaniacs got control throughout all history?

Kerry is an idiot
I'm not going to get my door kicked in for that. Even that idiot Obama knows that Kerry is an idiot.

More Toons
To keep the NSA chuckling. Poor guys. Whoever is assigned to read this blog . . . wow. And you thought your job sucks.

Ban Bossy
Have you heard about this campaign to ban bossy?

Wait! Before you summarily dismiss as supremely stoooooo-pid the idea of deforesting the language and establishing thought control, think about it. As long as the Book Burning Society is decreeing what words and thoughts we can have, maybe they should make it illegal to say "Racist."

I know, I know, MSNBC would have to close its doors. Bill Maher will have to have his mouth surgically sewn shut. But if you're serious about purifying society there are going to be some casualties.

Up for a laugh?
Just in case John Kerry isn't ridiculous enough.

Some moron lawmakers stayed up all night to discuss Global Warming, even though they have no intention of introducing any legislation about it.

The comments are hilarious. Wait . . . if it's "settled science," why all the discussion?

If stupidity endangers the ozone layer we might as well suck on an exhaust pipe right now.

Have you noticed . . .
. . . that I still have all the boring words but now I have more easy to paste cartoons?

This was great. Romney and Palin both predicted the situation with Russia, and were vilified for it.

Can you believe Romney said "binders of women?" Ha ha ha ha hah! Good thing we didn't elect him President! All he could do is fix the economy and deal with Russia. Who needs that?

We may have a crappy economy and be a laughing stock in the world, but at least Obama can deliver zingers like "The 80s called; they want their foreign policy back."

And man can that guy ever give a speech about gay marriage and Global Warming.

All right, let's wrap it up
Read this article about Obama grabbing dictatorial power.

Just do it.

Why do you have to fight me on everything?
