Very few of the really important things in life are urgent; that’s why it is so easy to procrastinate on them. In contemporary culture, very few important things have precedence over the immediate. So, for the record, I have very little interest in Justin Bieber’s infantile foolishness, the Richard Sherman-Michael Crabtree testosterone fueled feud or Sarah Silverman’s blasphemous, pathetic attempts at comedy. Furthermore, I have even less interest in all things Kardashian.
In another stunning display of unnecessary divisiveness, our imperial leader has proclaimed that since there are now enough people offended by the name “Redskins”, team ownership should consider changing it.
This, from an article appearing today on the Associated Press website:
President Barack Obama says he would “think about changing” the Washington Redskins’ name if he owned the football team as he waded into the controversy involving a word that many consider offensive to Native Americans.
Obama, in an interview with The Associated Press, said team names such as the Redskins offend “a sizable group of people.” He said that while fans get attached to the names, nostalgia may not be a good enough reason to keep them in place.
“I don’t know whether our attachment to a particular name should override the real legitimate concerns that people have about these things,” he said in the interview, which was conducted Friday.

In a post on Breitbart.com, Wynton Hall reports the following:
“What we shared is a belief in changing the world from the bottom up, not from the top down,” Obama told Google employees.
Google employees have been among Obama’s top campaign contributors, donating $814,540 in 2008 and $801,770 for his reelection campaign.
The likes of Apple, Facebook and others have been racing to reporters to say that they were unaware of the existence of “Prism” and would never knowingly provide information to the U.S. Government without the proper legal documentation.
As with all others listening to Obama’s mantra of “fundamental change”, has Silicon Valley been duped into providing information by “trusting” the Obama administration?
If the shit doesn’t hit the fan soon and if Silicon Valley doesn’t start naming names, are we already hosed?
I am so disgusted with everything going on in Washington right now. I’m disgusted with the Obama administration and its continuing assault on our liberties. I’m disgusted with all things relating to Congress, both the House and Senate. What the hell are they doing there? They sure as hell aren’t representing “We, the People”!
Not only do we have to continue to watch the unfolding scandal of Benghazi, we have to beg the Speaker of the House to begin a special, select committee to investigate all there is to be found. Speaker Boehner sits in his office on Capital Hill and does absolutely nothing! Nothing! Not only is the guy a complete failure as a Speaker, he has no balls! He wields immense Constitutional power to reign in the Executive branch and he does nothing!
Now comes the latest scandal with the IRS. Excuse me, the American Gestapo. They are acting like partisan hacks for Obama! I know what’s going on. Over the last 20-30 years, we’ve allowed government jobs to become tenured at all levels. The liberal radicals have slowly infiltrated all levels of government. They just needed a Marxist crony in the White House, which they now have.
Unbridled radicalism and a Marxist fervor has unleashed them!
We know that sleeper cells of radical Islamists will lie in wait for years before blowing something up. Why do you think the same thing couldn’t happen with our “civil servants” in Washington?
The sad truth is that it already has. We’re just now starting to see the results!

The link tells you this:
Hello, this is Sarah Palin calling to urge you to go to the polls on Election Day, or better yet, vote early. We have a critical choice to make this year and America needs leaders who believe in limited government, individual liberty, a robust national defense, stronger families, the sanctity of life and marriage, and time-honored values. Our nation is at a crossroads. So please go to the polls and vote for the candidates who share your common-sense values. Urge your friends and family to vote, too. Thank you and God bless you!
Notice the absence of references to Mitt. She’s correct!
It doesn’t matter who’s running, we just can’t re-elect Obama!
I talked about it today on my show.
Although I have no way to verify it, a contact in Virginia claims that the Obama campaign has pulled its advertising efforts from Virginia airwaves. Is this a concession that Virginia is going to Romney?
I don’t know about you, but I am at my wits end trying to figure out why the mainstream media won’t cover the Benghazi killings!
We have an Ambassador of the United States come under siege and our fearless leader in the White House does nothing? After the fact, no one in the mainstream media seemed interested in what happened and it continues today. Why?
We are watching the United States of America become a laughing stock throughout the world. It’s because our so-called, national media is coddling a Commander in Chief who is nothing but!
