Quips and Quotes

From a column by Kevin McCullough on why Dick Cheney is gaining in popularity while Barack Obama is losing it: "President Obama lives in a world that he desperately wishes existed. Vice President Cheney lives in the world that actually does."

From a column by Austin Hill on why many Americans object to Obama's scheduled speech to school children: "Perhaps most troubling about the President’s upcoming address to school kids is the accompanying curriculum provided by the U.S. Department of Education....For example, it is suggested that students in grades 7-12 should, before the President’s speech, write their responses to the following questions: “Why does President Obama want to speak with us today?” “How will he inspire us?” and “How will he challenge us?” ....notice that President Obama, himself -- not education, not the idea of becoming a learned person, but Barack Obama -- is the central theme of the questioning."

From a video produced by Demi Moore, a video which has been distributed and shown in some schools. The video features celebrities making promises and pledges. To the question of What's your pledge? some of the answers were: “To be a servant to our president,” says Demi Moore. “To be of service to Barack Obama,” says Anthony Kiedis. (Does there seem to be a common thread running through the propaganda that Obama and his worshipers are distributing?)

It may not be much longer until the rest of us are being burned at the stake as heretics.
