(more) Proof of the cult

This made a small headline on

"Obama cookie bringing in a lot of dough for cafe"

My initial thought was, "oh, they made a cookie to look like Obama, or say 'hope' or something" but sadly, no, it was just a simple cookie that the Obama family liked.

But it doesn't stop there.

DES MOINES, Iowa - Want an example of the change Barack Obama is bringing to the country?

Check out cookie sales at Baby Boomers Cafe in Des Moines.


His daughters, 10-year-old Malia and 7-year-old Sasha, would stop by with their mother, Michelle, and Maxfield said they loved the cookies. During a stop in Iowa last month, Obama's staff ordered about a dozen cookies for the family. That's when word got out about their affection for the confection.

Suddenly, sales of 400 cookies in a good week soared to more than 1,000 a week, with requests coming from as far away as Mexico. Alas, the price is going up, from 50 cents to 75 cents a cookie to make up for the time it takes to make more each day.

Don't stop reading now. It gets even better. This is where the cult shines like a beacon.

“I think everybody just ... thought, 'Oh, great cookie, great president — the world is a happy place. Barack's going to fix all the problems and if I have a bite of this cookie it's going to make me feel good,'” Maxfield said.

What exactly is the correlation between a president and a cookie? How is a cookie going to make you forget your unpaid mortgage, failing business, and repossessed car? For that matter, how is a socialist president, who wants to destroy America in the name of "fairness" (i.e. keep everybody down fairly) going to make anyone feel good? I just don't get it.

I am starting to think that Islam is not the greatest threat to our nation but rather Obamunism. These Obama supporters are nothing but sheep. Their shepherd Obama says, "eat here" and they do. New York has already renamed an elementary school after Barack Obama and one in Tacoma is already trying to follow that lead. They are obsessed with hope & change, chanting "yes we can!" to anyone who will listen. (cult alert! cult alert!)

In case you forgot, Obama only won by 6 percent. That's 58 million votes for McCain and 66 million for Obama. He only got one percent more of the votes than George W. Bush did for his second term. So.... yeah.

I think it's sweet

Found via the David Boze Show blog, this story struck more as cute than weird.

Practicing abstinence, bride and groom have never kissed


The "no-kissing" rule came up as a way to prevent things from getting out of hand. You see, Fabien and LaLuz both teach abstinence courses to Chicago Public Schools teens. And they say they practice what they preach.

To avoid temptation while dating, they made sure they were never alone with each other in a house. When they watched movies on the couch, they snuggled sitting straight up, never lying down.

"It really tested us and encouraged us to grow closer in our hearts and our minds, just expressing things verbally," Fabien said.

Despite abstaining, they have no anxieties about their upcoming Bahamas honeymoon.

Yes, they've heard "test drive the car before you buy," but LaLuz has her own analogy.

"You can't take the car out of the parking lot until you pay for it," she said.

Some people have commented that this story is weird but I think it's sweetly old-fashioned, something that is not practiced enough. Perhaps I do not have the shock-factor because I recently watched the show on TLC about the Duggar's, the family with 17 kids who's oldest recently got married and shared the same dating values. He gave a touching analogy about the difference between dating and courting and why he chooses not to kiss before marriage. He said that when you date a lot, you give pieces of your heart away to each person. Later when you find The One, you have a tattered bit of heart left give them and all you can say is, "Well, this is what I have left to give you."

One person comment on the Boze blog about TMI or too much information about this couple's first kiss. I so humbly replied saying how it's a nice change to hear about a couple who's waited till marriage rather than *yawn* another knocked-up unwed mother. Our culture has made perverted acts acceptable (a la Sex & the City) yet makes conservative acts such as this be the perverted and "weird" ones.

What has our culture become? What will become of us?

Three days so far

It's been SO nice sleeping, getting errands done, watching movies, and going shooting but mostly I'm bored out of my mind. My head was invaded yesterday with pesky little germlins which finally seized my left nostril and throat today. Today I played the waiting game, just biting my nails, hoping for my body's defenses to kick in. Maybe my antibodies will make a Trojan horse and take back my nostrils. I think tonight I shall act as a liberal, drugging myself up with NyQuil and falling asleep while hoping for the war to end (in my favor of course) but not actually doing anything productive to help. Then I'll piss and moan about how I'm losing the war.

Ha ha.

I'm excited for Thanksgiving tomorrow though. (Cranium!)

Terror in Mumbai

Terrorism is not a ghost. It is not a phantom nor is it a wild goose chase. So liberals you need to shut the hell up unless you can be productive about this matter.

Emails from the Deccan Mujahideen claim they are responsible for these coordinated attacks on hotels, restaurants, train stations, landmarks, police headquarters and other busy parts of India's financial capital, Mumbai (Bombay), according to the news story on Apparently this Islamic extremist group was targeting Americans and Britons, asking to see passports. Some suspects from the group were killed, some were detained.

Interesting. So freaking interesting. Why on earth would they target the busy city of Mumbai for Americans and not LA or New York? Is it because we are armed?? It's easy to make an indirect political statement at another country but meant for the US. Russia did it when they invaded Georgia earlier this year. They wanted to start WW3 and even said so. They know we want to protect the little guy. If Russia could start a war, oil prices would go up therefore making their country richer than ours and in turn more powerful. The statement from these Deccan Mujahideen fellas seems to be the same as the al Qaeda statements-- religious intolerance and they think the UK and the US are a bunch of perverts who must be destroyed lest we poison the rest of the world with our stank of freedom and rights.

I'll be curious to see how this unfolds. The terror attacks on London done after 9/11 went almost entirely ignored or at least forgotten quickly. Armed or not, Americans are still at risk. And it will only get worse after BHO is inaugurated.

"Gird your loins" is right, Gaffing Biden. 'twill be a long 4 years.

Brett Favre invented football

Brett Favre is a talented athlete. He is enjoyable to watch. But I am annoyed because as I watch Monday night football Packers vs. Saints, all the commentators can talk about is how Aaron Rogers is like Brett Favre in some way but doesn't measure up in other ways. Why can't Rogers have his own identity? Instead, he is the-guy-who-took-over-for-Brett-Favre. Poor Aaron Rogers.

Just your average mall shooting

The people of south Seattle are unfazed by another mall shooting. Not that they happen often in the mall but I think Tukwila is pretty used to it happening in general. Yesterday about 4pm there was a (possible) gang-related shooting by a young man which critically injured a 15 year-old and killed another teenager.

The reason I say "unfazed" is because just 24 hours later, the mall was packed. Not without extra patrol of course. This is why they built the Southcenter mall-- to keep us lowly south-enders out of the Bellevue mall, lest we muss up their pretty city.

Oh yeah? Well once I spit in Bellevue. Take that!

Where am I?

Just when I start doubting people...

...someone goes and gives me their sighting scope for FREE! Wow! Thank you kind stranger!

Not that I base my opinion of people on how giving they are but lately there has been a lot of issues with crime and the sagging economy which tend to make people a little more grumpy than usual. Worse, the economy troubles are right before Christmas which probably magnifies just how broke and in trouble financially people really are. So when a stranger gives me something "just because" in the middle of such times, it makes me a little more appreciative.

And for those who are worried about this being a shady kind of giving, don't worry; the person who gave it to me is a regular at the gun range who I've seen from time to time.

I say Christmas and Holy Day

I got to thinking about the PC holiday greetings we are supposed to say but get this-- Holiday = Holy Day. Christmas is a Holy Day. So technically wishing someone a Happy Holiday is as good as saying Happy Christmas.

So to all you libtards, I tell you Happy Holy Day and Merry Christmas.

That's right. Jesus Christ loves you.

Can you handle it?

Grumble, Groan & Whine

I just... I'm so... ugh...


I'll get over it.

More importantly, I have the week off so that is good news. I shall sleep. Then shoot. And life shall continue as planned.

Front page news! Huge story! Obama gives up BlackBerry!

Yes you read correctly. Obama must give up his BlackBerry which is such a huge, must-report piece of information that it made the front page of the Seattle Times. This is ground-breaking, earth-shattering news! Why did they not tell us sooner??

Obama used e-mail to stay in touch with friends from the lonely confines of the road, often sending messages such as "Sox!" when the Chicago White Sox won a game.


Should Obama want to break ground and become the first president to fire off e-mails from the West Wing and wherever he travels, he could turn to Al Gore as a model. In the later years of his vice presidency, Democrats said, Gore used a government e-mail address and a campaign address in his race against Bush

Oh for crying out loud! Really? That was front page worthy? I don't understand it completely why such a silly and obvious thing would be such a big deal. Of course he will have to give up most things of his former life-- he is the POTUS! His life will never be the same so he will not be allowed to have such normal and peasantly things. This article kinda makes me want to vomit a little bit.

But it gets worse. Arley mentioned how he is doing video addresses a la 1984 and it appears to be true.

On Saturday, as Obama broadcast the weekly Democratic radio address, it came with a twist. For the first time, it was also videotaped and archived on YouTube.

I haven't read it yet but the blurb via wikipedia says it's a book about a repressive totalitarian political regime, propaganda, surveillance, and society's increased encroachment on the rights of the individual.

Guns are racist

Found via massbackwards, the libtards have yet another reason so call us racists. If you ask me, that word is getting thrown around all too much these days and might be losing meaning.

Anyway, according to a dimwitted, feel-good, so-called expert, if you have bought guns since the election, you are a racist.

"Why are white people buying assault weapons?" said Ben Agger, a sociology professor at the University of Texas at Arlington who wrote a book about the Virginia Tech slayings. "I almost hate to say it, but there is a deep-seated fear of the armed black man, because Obama now commands the military and other instruments of the justice system. They are afraid Obama will exact retribution for the very deep-seated legacy of slavery."

Oh for the love of Pete! If Obama were white with the same exact policies, said the same exact things on the campaign trail and had the same exact record, everyone would still buy lots of guns 'n ammo. If John McCain had the same policies, stances and record that he has now but was middle-eastern, black, Asian, Hispanic, etc., I would have still voted for him. When are the liberal idiots going to get that it has nothing to do with race? When? They are the ones who keep bring up race! Maybe they are truly the ones who are racist but express it by blaming the Republicans because they don't want to be called on it. After all, it was democrats who wanted to keep their slaves and it was democrats who instilled the Jim Crow Laws of "separate but equal." It's democrats who don't believe in God and therefor do not believe in God's will for Christians to love everybody no matter their age, gender, sexual orientation, race, or any other thing about how God made them.

How does that make you feel?

I took the kid to Barnes & Noble today, as I do most days. Each day has a whole new weird thing happens as we frequent the one in the U-Village. The other day I heard a mother call after her son, Rufus (poor kid!). Once I saw a three or four year old being breast fed in the kids area/train table area. Earlier this week I saw my old 8th grade history/writing teacher and for the first time, her one-year old son. Today was a little different. Story is with Grandma and boy about age 4.

(as kid and I enter the train table area, she crawls to the table and pulls up to a stand)
Boy: Look it's a baby! I have a baby at home.
Gma: Yes you do have a baby brother at home. This baby is about the same age.
Boy: The baby doesn't walk. My baby doesn't walk either.
(kid throws a train on the floor)
Boy: That baby threw the train on the floor. My baby does that too.
Gma: Yes, your brother throws stuff on the floor too. (pause) How does that make you feel?
Boy: Well, he always throws stuff on the floor. My trains and food.
Gma: Yes, but how does that make you feel? How do you feel when he throws things on the floor?
Boy: (pause) My baby throws things on the floor. That baby threw the train on the floor. My baby is little too. (...)
Gma: How does that make you feel?

And so on...

What the heck is going on? Why is it so interesting how he feels about something so weird? The only possible theory I, as an unknown outsider, could make is that maybe the kid is autistic and Grandma is trying to do emotion differentiation but if that would be true, Grandma is going about it the wrong way. You identify the feeling for them in the moment and talk about it. Example, when brother is throwing his trains and boy gets mad, you say, "you're angry that brother threw your trains" or something like that. Kids don't always remember how they felt hours or days ago, especially autistic or other kids with special needs.

So this proves how sissified Seattle is. Stop over-thinking this whole parenting thing. Relax. Take a chill pill. Kids will learn at their own pace. And stop chucking this "feelings" garbage down their throats and let them learn through experience and play. My boss thinks his one-year old will get "ideas" and end up as a pregnant teen if she plays with the doll and doll stroller she got for her birthday.

Maybe fake but still true

The Lange's emailed this letter out to everyone and it is said that it may be a letter from President Bush hater David Letterman. Call me a skeptic but I don't think it's an actual letter from David Letterman however it makes a really good point.

As most of you know I am not a President Bush fan, nor have I ever been, but this is not about Bush, it is about us, as Americans, and it seems to hit the mark.

The other day I was reading Newsweek magazine and came across some Poll data I found rather hard to believe. It must be true given the source, right?

The Newsweek poll alleges that 67 percent of Americans are unhappy with the direction the country is headed and 69 percent of the country is unhappy with the performance of the President. In essence 2/3 of the citizenry just ain't happy and want a change. So being the knuckle dragger I am, I started thinking, 'What are we so unhappy about?'

A. Is it that we have electricity and running water 24 hours a day, 7 Days a week?

B. Is our unhappiness the result of having air conditioning in the summer and heating in the winter?

C. Could it be that 95.4 percent of these unhappy folks have a job?

D. Maybe it is the ability to walk into a grocery store at any time and see more food in moments than Darfur has seen in the last year?

E. Maybe it is the ability to drive our cars and trucks from the Pacific Ocean to the Atlantic Ocean without having to present identification papers as we move through each state.

F. Or possibly the hundreds of clean and safe motels we would find along the way that can provide temporary shelter?

G. I guess having thousands of restaurants with varying cuisine from around the world is just not good enough either.

H. Or could it be that when we wreck our car, emergency workers show up and provide services to help all and even send a helicopter to take you to the hospital.

I. Perhaps you are one of the 70 percent of Americans who own a home.

J. You may be upset with knowing that in the unfortunate case of a fire, a group of trained firefighters will appear in moments and use top notch equipment to extinguish the flames thus saving you, your family, and your belongings.

K. Or if, while at home watching one of your many flat screen TVs, a burglar or prowler intrudes, an officer equipped with a gun and a bullet-proof vest will come to defend you and your family against attack or loss.

L. This all in the backdrop of a neighborhood free of bombs or militias raping and pillaging the residents. Neighborhoods where 90% of teenagers own cell phones and computers.

M. How about the complete religious, social and political freedoms we enjoy that are the envy of everyone in the world?

Maybe that is what has 67% of you folks unhappy.

Fact is, we are the largest group of ungrateful, spoiled brats the world has ever seen. No wonder the world loves the U.S., yet has a great disdain for its citizens. They see us for what we are. The most blessed people in the world who do nothing but complain about what we don't have, and what we hate about the country instead of thanking the good Lord we live here.

I know, I know. What about the president who took us into war and has no plan to get us out? The president who has a measly 31 percent approval rating? Is this the same president who guided the nation in the dark days after 9/11? The president that cut taxes to bring an economy out of recession? Could this be the same guy who has been called every name in the book for succeeding in keeping all the spoiled ungrateful brats safe from terrorist attacks? The commander in chief of an all-volunteer army that is out there defending you and me?

Did you hear how bad the President is on the news or talk show? Did this news affect you so much, make you so unhappy you couldn't take a look around for yourself and see all the good things and be glad? Think about it......are you upset at the President because he actually caused you personal pain OR is it because the 'Media' told you he was failing to kiss your sorry ungrateful behind every day.

Make no mistake about it. The troops in Iraq and Afghanistan have volunteered to serve, and in many cases may have died for your freedom. There is currently no draft in this country. They didn't have to go. They are able to refuse to go and end up with either a ''general'' discharge, an 'other than honorable'' discharge or, worst case scenario, a ''dishonorable' discharge after a few days in the brig.

So why then the flat-out discontentment in the minds of 69 percent of Americans?

Say what you want, but I blame it on the media. If it bleeds it leads and they specialize in bad news. Everybody will watch a car crash with blood and guts. How many will watch kids selling lemonade at the corner? The media knows this and media outlets are for-profit corporations. They offer what sells, and when criticized, try to defend their actions by 'justifying' them in one way or another. Just ask why they tried to allow a murderer like O.J. Simpson to write a book about how he didn't kill his wife, but if he did he would have done it this way......Insane!

Turn off the TV, burn Newsweek, and use the New York Times for the bottom of your bird cage. Then start being grateful for all we have as a country. There is exponentially more good than bad. We are among the most blessed people on Earth and should thank God several times a day, or at least be thankful and appreciative.' 'With hurricanes, tornados, fires out of control, mud slides, flooding, severe thunderstorms tearing up the country from one end to another, and with the threat of bird flu and terrorist attacks, 'Are we sure this is a good time to take God out of the Pledge of Allegiance?'

-David Letterman

This particular letter wasn't my wake up call but I did receive one about a month or two ago. I realized that I too have succumbed to the entitlement mindset. The government doesn't owe me anything. I don't always deserve a raise at work. I can't stop the rain. And so on. I believe that I still have an Eeyore view of the world but I am working hard on changing my attitude. When I start groaning to myself about having to go to work, I stop mid-groan and thank the Lord that I have a job. When I have a want, I thank the Lord for what I already have. It would be nice to have lots of things but I am truly grateful for being free. I know I have a long way to go in fixing my attitude but I am grateful to have the opportunity and insight to be able to do so.

I once read in an autobiography of Michelle Akers, women's soccer player with CFIDS, a little life lesson: Sometimes God taps you on the shoulder to get your attention but I needed a hammer to the head.

King County Young Republicans

I joined the KCYR group about a month ago, mostly going to social events. I think the actual productive meetings start up again in January in hopes of moving our party forward and getting rid of the RINOs. (Republican In Name Only) The main (left) stream media is obsessing about how Republicans have lost their way and subtly suggest that the right needs to be more liberal. Some of the RINOs are definitely up for that but us few conservative-republicans are concerned about losing our core values of the right.

On election night, I went out afterwards to a Denny's with 5 other YRs. Two of them got into a heated debate with the other three as Moderate-Republicans vs. Conservative-Republicans discussing God and whether He created the earth and allowed evolution or if things have always been as they are. The CR brought up great points about the difference of adaptation vs. evolution which make a lot of sense. I mentioned how the measure of time was established by man so who knows how old the earth really is since 6000 years to God may be different to 6000 years to man. The MR couldn't differentiate adaptation and evolution and really couldn't express whether they had faith in God or not.

After one CR girl left to use the restroom, I spoke with the remaining two MR girls. I said that the difference is that she is conservative and they are moderate but we are still on the same side and must stop acting like name-calling, whiny Liberals. I was offended when one girl said that yes, she is moderate and when people ask her what party she affiliates herself with, she would reply with "I'm an open-minded Republican." Talk about slap in the face! I said conservatives are more open-minded than anybody because we live by God's law that we must love and accept everyone even if we don't love and accept what they do. but before I was too drawn into the conversation, I receded. It's no use. This girl, I found out later, is a former Democrat who is slowly being brought to the right by her Moderate boyfriend.

Our party is doomed.

However, I strongly believe that sometimes it takes such a crisis to reevaluate what and who we are and it will ultimately make us stronger. I pray that we do not succumb to the liberal disease but I just don't know anymore.

On the upside, I have met some pretty incredible true Republicans and I am excited for the next events. This weekend is the Woodinville Wine tour, next week is shooting with the gals for ladies night at Wade's, plus a lot more to come. Just as I was losing faith, I found this wonderful group.

Thank you, God.

Now if only I can find a good church...

Onion Blues

Tears and all, I get the blues when chopping onions. It never fails. Every time I chop white onions I cry and after a few episodes I finally got smart-- ski goggles. Douglas makes fun of me as he has seen me in my pathetic attempt to escape the onion fumes but it works!

Yeah, and that's my story.

Take that.

I made it to the news!

I was a hit at the Republican gathering on election night for the shirt I wore. The front said, "McCain, Rossi, Reichert 2008" with check marks next to each name. The back said 'God Guns Guts." I was interviewed, videoed, and photographed by many people and news people but unfortunately I was only able to get one business card for one story. Here it is. It's actually not a news story but just a picture and a blurb. Oh well, I'm an attention whore and will take what I can get.

The empty life of an Obama supporter

This video is more true than it seems. The celebration was big last night but the mood was very somber today. I think Libtards wanted Obama to lose so they have something to bitch about.

Enjoy the video.

Obama Win Causes Obsessive Supporters To Realize How Empty Their Lives Are

My letter to America

Dear America,

I apologize sincerely for not writing sooner and I regret the circumstances in which I do so now. I know your family has fallen victim to unfortunate circumstances before but this one might be the most painful for you and all your relatives. Your fall to communism will be a resounding thud heard by all nations and felt by your family with the pain of a thousand knives in the gut. I know you may never fully recover but your bloodlines are strong. My family will pray for yours.

Rumor has it that the elderly in your family have been ill for some time and have taken a turn for the worst. Please send my best wishes for a full recovery to Democracy and Capitalism. Scientists have not yet found a cure for the Liberalism Disease that infects them but they are working night and day on it. The Conservative family has been dedicated in the search for the cure, particularly Mr. Conservative who has been working night and day both with people and prayer. He sends his love to your family. Sadly, Dr. Republican in the Washington Research Center says this new strain of Liberalism is stronger than the strains discovered in the 70s, originating somewhere in California and is proving to be much stronger, more violent, more aggressive and even deadly in some cases. Democracy and Capitalism will stay in my prayers in hopes that God will have mercy on them and help them heal.

How big your children must be! Life and Liberty have made a wonderful reputation for themselves. I was so proud of your family when reading about them in my high school history books. Life has done amazing things along with her friend Opportunity—what a dear one she is. There are whole sections in the books describing their amazing work with your family including the free market, inventions, space travel, art, music, etc. I was most happy to read of her accomplishment of introducing our founding fathers to the well respected family of Mr. and Mrs. Pursuit-of-Happiness. However, it deeply saddens me to hear about Life’s work being destroyed. I wish to understand better why the Libtards are set on aborting her project with infants and children. Please pass along my blessings to Life. I pray she gets stronger and receives the respect she deserves.

Liberty is my hero—please tell him that next time you see him! Perhaps Liberty has been mentioned most of all in the books with his noble deeds of freeing your family of the tyrannical rule of England, the blacks from slavery, women from oppression, and barriers of those who are different physically and mentally. Liberty has allowed us the ability to enjoy the fruits of our labor and shown us the wonders of the constitution. America, I was heartbroken to hear your son has a warrant for his arrest. I heard the Independence family has been interrogated for aiding his escape but I won’t ask for details lest your return letter is intercepted by the communist army. In speaking with the Conservative and Republican families, we’ve agreed to hold off our own fight to save your son to see if your family can overturn the warrant. But at any moment your family needs us, our families will be ready to fight for you.

America, I want you to know that even thought the Leftist-Extremist mafia family has been harassing your family, hurting your pets and property, and stealing your identity and ruining your credit, We The People are here for you through the times of turbulence as well as the times of smooth sailing. God blessed your children and elderly 250 years ago and He will protect them now; this is a time for learning and there is no one better to teach than the strong ones.

Again I must beg for your forgiveness for the lack of respect I have shown your family in not writing sooner. I greatly apologize for my actions portraying a disgraceful citizen and hope to redeem myself in helping your family out in the future. Please accept my deepest sympathies for your fall, not as pity, but as my most profound admiration for your ability to handle such anguish in a respectful and tactful way; I am unsure if I could be as resilient as you.

Stay strong America, your freedom shall return; the brave are ready. May God bless you a thousand times over.

Most sincerely with respect,

Tara Babcock

Tomorrow is the big day. Tomorrow will decided whether America will stay free for at least 4 more years under McCain or if we will succumb to socialism under the iron-fist rule of Obama.

I predict a Nazi like rule under Obama but hope for the rule of Freedom under McCain.

Dear Lord, save us all.

Obama's price signals

Found via massbackwards

More of Obama's "change." I really don't understand why the leftist extremists think that electing a black person for president is better than electing a qualified person for president. No I am not being racists because Tom Hanks made a video endorsement of Obama and even said he wants a black man for president to free his white guilt. If I am being racists for what I said, so is he.

Obama would probably be more successful as a leader in another country, a communist one or a poor one. Maybe he should lead his home-country Kenya. But he needs to leave America the hell alone.

Pass this around.
