A Catholic who follows Rome & the Magisterium. I'm against gay "marriage", abortion, embryonic stem cell research, euthanasia, human cloning. Altar girls, Communion in the hand, Eucharistic Ministers and "Protestant" music in the Church doesn't bother me at all. A proud American retired submarine sailor. Our borders should be secured with a 10 ft. high fence topped by concertina wire with minefields out to 20 yards on both sides and an additional 10 yards filled with warning signs outside of that Let's get energy independent NOW! Back Israel to the max, stop appeasing followers of the Pedophile Prophet. Pro 2nd Amendment, pro death penalty, Repeal all hate crime legislation. Back the police unless you'd rather call a hippie when everything hits the fan. Get government out of dealing with education, childhood obesity and the enviornment. Stop using the military for sociological experiments and if we're in a war don't micromanage their every move. Kill your television, limit time on the computer and pick up a book. God's will be done and may He have mercy upon us all.

Whats good for the goose is good for the gander...

No doubt you've already seen this little gem, it's making the rounds. Below it is an article from out in Los Angeles;

LOS ANGELES -- A poster showing President Barack Obama as Heath Ledger's "Joker" character from "The Dark Knight" is creating a stir on the streets of Los Angeles where the image began appearing over the weekend.

The Obama-Joker poster shows President Obama with white face paint, dark eye shadow and smudged red lipstick and also has the word "socialism" printed in bold, dark letters under the image of his face.

It's unclear who created the image and who is posting it across the city. No one has taken credit so far.

Los Angeles Urban Policy Roundtable President Earl Ofari Hutchinson is calling the depiction, politically mean spirited and dangerous.

Hutchinson is challenging the group or individual that put up the poster to have the courage and decency to publicly identify themselves.

"Depicting the president as demonic and a socialist goes beyond political spoofery," says Hutchinson, "it is mean-spirited and dangerous."

"We have issued a public challenge to the person or group that put up the poster to come forth and publicly tell why they have used this offensive depiction to ridicule President Obama."

The poster has also gone viral online, crashing the website that first posted images of it and rising to the top of Google's "Today's Hot Trends" list.

What got my attention was the colossal amount of gall it must have taken to label this "...mean-spirited and dangerous." after eight years of the vilification that Bush took. Bush was labeled everything under the sun including; an active alcoholic who hid his drinking from public eye, a coward who got out of "real" military service through family connections, a war mongering racist, a plain old racist, an idiot who needed Carl Rove and the like to prop him up, etc. and etc.

I won't even touch some of the things mentioned about his wife and daughters. But I will mention that the original story line for Comedy Central's "Thats My Bush" had the twin daughters cast as lesbians. Heard anything like that about the daughters of B.O.? Me neither.

Now supporters of B.O. are shocked, shocked I say to hear that someone is trashing their icon!

Welcome to politics as it gets practiced outside of Chicago, folks. It's a rough game and you need to wear your rhino hide underwear to work every day.

Things are just starting to get rowdy for Obongo and his Circus Czars. This will get better as more and more people dig their heads out of their asses and realize what this clown is doing.

Rev. Gregori, right on target!

VSO, yep. Seems they can dish it out but not take it.

Amy, intimidation tactics from this man and his supporters don't surprise me at all. As I understand Chicago politics, it's par for the course. Now that they're in a bigger pond they're finding out big fish are a dime a dozen and those intimidation tactics will only work for so long without some kind of modification. My biggest worry in that area is that they'll figure out exactly what to do.

Sig94, if enough folks can get onboard fast enough and B.O.'s folks don't figure out how to adjust their tactics, we might just see his ONLY term in office become a historic train wreck. I mean that last in ways not yet apparent.

Because it's already a train wreck.
