Polish econuts: beavers log illegally

Some Polish econuts walking along a nature reserve in northern Poland, no this is not a Polish joke, thought they had scored an environmentalists wet dream of a coup. They found what they established were trees with their trunks partially chopped or notched ready to be felled and some 20 neatly stacked tree trunks. In other words an illegal logging site. Being brainwashed and rabid econuts they naturally assumed the worst and without doing any further investigating rolled, hopped, ran or slithered to a police station where a report was filed hoping to expose the bad guys.

Duty bound by the always present threat of a public relations black eye by a militant liberal press if they did not investigate a crime against the environment, the Subkowy police showed up where the econuts declared nature had been defaced and yes they confirmed the econuts had found something. But not being lazy or educated beyond their intelligence, followed a trail created by something or someone that had dragged a tree trunk away.  At the end of the trail many other trees and the culprits were found.

What did they find? A portable illegal saw mill? No. A truck full of illegally felled trees guarded by sweaty, musky smelling loggers cruising for econuts? No but the econuts could always dream. Perhaps a bunch of crazed and deranged stock brokers chopping down trees because they had been fired and could no longer afford to buy arrugula or fetta cheese? Not even close.

Picture a beaver dam. Beavers were to blame. Police reaction to econuts who had wasted their time: you are stupid. There is nothing more natural than a beaver. No word on what the econut response was. They probably told the police to go out and shoot some cows because the methane they fart contributes to global warming.

Rosie O’Donnell show tanked, cancelled….

Last week the cat dragged Rosie Live to the TV screens of millions of viewers. They took a quick peek, a wiff, held their noses while their eyes watered, ears folding back into the head in protest and quickly threw Rosie and her show in the garbage. Wraped in a double layered, bio degradable poop bag with safety seal. Next to all the other soft to the touch poop bags containing the stinkaroos the loony left wing nuts of NBC have been trying to feed the public but no one wants to see.

The hype around Rosie O’Donnell had been building for months, carefully cultivated by the American left. Every Mainstream Media standard bearer had been breathlessly promoting her variety show as being cutting edge, raw, politically savvy, the bane of conservative thought and the mainstay of the new NBC season. It was going to be the equivalent of the New York Times, Huffington Post and Late Night with David Letterman all rolled up into the shinning beacon of comedy, thought, analysis, opinion and celebrity worship missing on TV screens. Oprah, dare they say, should be worried. It was going to be glorious! Who were they kidding?

Truth be told Rosie O’Donnels show was cancelled because no one saw it. Sorry, let me correct myself in the name of objectivity. Don’t want to give you the wrong impression! Five million people saw Rosie Live, about the same number of people that think Barack Hussein Obama really IS the Messiah. Nah, bad comparison. 63.7 million Americans bought the Obama’s song and dance extravaganza and believed he was the Messiah, the One, the Almighty, the Black Superman to borrow a phrase from the 1975 song by Johnny Wakelin And The Kinshasa Band. Some are starting to get buyers remorse but that is a topic for another time.

Guests were many and varied, from a retired Minnelli to a gay as a three dollar bill Aiken, but for whatever reason they had something in common that night and I don’t mean being Barack Obama supporters. Most were talentless as in having lost their talent at home and not finding it before leaving the house. So bad in fact that if bad taste and a poor performance were a crime they would all be serving time working as hotel staff at the Taj Mahal Palace Hotel in Mumbai, India. Among the worst offenders we find: Liza Minnelli, Harry Connick Jr., Conan O’Brien, Jane Krakowski, Alec Baldwin, Clay Aiken, and Alanis Morissette.

I guess that by her stint at The View the people know what a far-left-wing kook O’Donnell has become and no one outside the knife-wielding, loony toon left wants anything to do with her. Except Obama central, NBC, of course. Not withstanding the Mainstream Medias disengenuous pre-airing hype, Rosie Live was dead on arrival. A POS and no, I’m not talking about my newly found passion, EVE Online.

McCain to Letterman: I screwed up

A couple of days ago on YouTube I watched a short clip of John McCain’s appearance on the Late Show with David Letterman. The show airs on CBS. To my horror I thought McCain looked inept, out of touch, on the defensive and clueless under the barrage of rapid fire questions from Letterman. That is, until my curiosity got the best of me and I searched for, found and saw the whole unedited interview a couple of days later, also on YouTube.

You can watch the edited interview, with commercials (sorry blame CBS), HERE.

You can watch the full interview, with commercials (sorry blame CBS), HERE.

What a difference, no? Remember the hit pieces disguised as interviews both Katie Couric (CBS Evening News) and Charles Gibson (ABC News) did on our gal Sarah “Barracuda” Palin? Liberals had a field day with those edited interviews, doling them out like fast acting poison pills meant to maim not kill, until they were debunked. Weeks later. Some of the damage they inflicted on Palin’s credibility still lingers to this day. 

As has become the norm the shortened interviews from members of the Mainstream Media (MSM) have morphed from meant to inform to cleverly edited vicious hit pieces. There is a lesson to learn here folks: When looking for stuff on YouTube one has to search a bit, maybe even repeating the search several times using different words, and not be swayed by the first video the search engine throws up or at best, coughs up.

John McCain roasts Barack Obama

John McCain and Barack Obama roasted each other at the 63rd Annual Alfred E. Smith Foundation Dinner in New York City. McCain was the first up and set the bar pretty high cracking jokes and jabbing away at Obama about Joe The Plumber, his gaffe at not remembering how many houses he owns, Bill Clinton campaigning half heartedly for Obama, the Mainstream Media bias in favor of Obama, ACORN and voter fraud, etc. In the last part of his speech he praised Obama and the strides made by the USA is fighting racism. All in all a must see masterful performance by McCain. Yes, even his praise of Obama.

Watch the first part of McCain roasting Obama HERE.

Watch the second part of the McCain’s performance HERE.

There is about a minute and a half overlap between the first and second video. Enjoy!

Video of SNL skit bashing democrats for financial meltdown

Did you watch all of Saturday Night Live last weekend? If you tuned off after the Sarah Palin / Joe Biden debate skit you missed seeing, in my opinion, some very interesting political satire. The following link takes you to an almost picture perfect satire of a skit about the role the White House, democrats in the House, their enablers, greedy speculators, and the “victims” of the meltdown play/played in the financial crisis. It has been yanked from many places because it ruffled a lot of democrat, liberal and progressive feathers but hopefully it will still be available at PatDollard.com.

The skit makes fun of a clueless President Bush, a mean to republicans Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, a hard to understand when he speaks Chairman of the Financial Services Committee Barney Frank, a haughty multibillionaire George Soros, and two gleeful liberals Herbert and Marion Sandler who sold their mortgage business to Wachovia Bank for about $ 24 billion before the meltdown. The only currently hot political topic missing is a reference to the ethically wrong homosexual 1990’s relationship between then Representative Barney Frank and Herb Moses, an executive at Fannie Mae.

List Of 300+ Celebrities That Support Obama

The celebrities listed below this introduction were chosen because they have either been recently in the news or were run across in my non-scientific Internet search. A short explanation is given about some of their comments or actions in favor of Obama but please take it with a large grain of salt as it is in no way complete. In case someone asks, of course there are a small number of stars that support the John McCain / Sarah Palin ticket like Sylvester Stallone, John Voight, Ted Nugent and Charlie Daniels.

It is no secret that most Hollywood and music stars are liberals and have become a reliable source of campaign cash for Democratic candidates. So far the music and entertainment industry has given around $ 15 million to the Obama presidential effort and donated $ 3.4 million to the Hillary Clinton campaign. How did John McCain fare you ask? His campaign has received around $1 million.

Not included are many rap and hip-hop stars like 50 Cent, Chamillionare, Scarface, etc., because around 95% of their community supports Obama’s candidacy. To list them all would take forever. They support Obama by using clothes with Obama’s image on them on stage, by putting up Obama or Obama/Biden banners at their concerts, etc. Almost all speak favorably of the candidate and hope the more outspoken members of their community tone down their support for fear of alienating voters that do not understand what their music is about. Some artists have said they support and will vote for Obama because he is one of them. Others say he is the most qualified for the job with race having nothing to do with their decision. To say that they are excited about this election is an understatement!

Below the stars, more or less in alphabetical order, listed by their last name. Looking for Oprah? She’s under W for Winfrey. How about Jay-Z? He’s under C for Shawn Carter. Homer Simpson? Try S for Homer Simpson. Yes, even Homer tries to vote for Obama.

April 2008 after the ABC debate with Hillary Clinton, in a speech a few days later, Obama used the the motion of brushing dirt off his shoulder to make a point. Most people outside of the hip-hop community missed the significance of the gesture but it quickly became controversial. In a mater of days after the controversy that a presidential candidate for the first time ever used hip-hop inspired gestures during a speech had reached a crescendo, it was learned that the gesture could be related to a song by Jay-Z called “Dirt Off Your Shoulder”. The gesture meant shaking those that hate you off or getting rid of negative energy. Obama and his campaign have said that in his iPod Obama has songs by Jay-Z…. September 5, 2008 he performed at a concert to register to vote, and vote for Obama, in Miami.

On August 31, 2008 Diddy posted his video blog “Diddy Obama Blog # 16: Attention John McCain” saying he does not agree with McCain as he is making crazy decisions like choosing Sarah Palin as his running mate because, Diddy said, there are no crackheads, black people and not enough crime in Alaska. He added that instead of Palin, McCain should have chosen Michelle Obama as his running mate. October 2, 2008 on his new blog “Diddy Blog # 24: Sarah Palin Scares Me!!” the singer says, well, that Palin scares him.

In 2007 continues the Drudge Report, conservative Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas was not allowed to go on when he was promoting his book. Later on September 5, 2008 Oprah stated to TMZ that she would love to have Palin on, after the election, as the staff had not discussed the Palin appearance and she had made the decision not have her show become a platform for candidates. Oprah has said about Obama: That would be my favorite guy, ….I know him well enough to believe in his moral authority. And that is the number one reason why I am supporting him, ..my Senator, my favorite Senator, and my choice.

List of Hollywood and music stars that support Obama

UPDATE October 5, 2008: An updated and much longer list has been posted HERE.

The stars were chosen because they have either been recently in the news or were run across in my non-scientific Internet search. A short explanation is given about some of their comments or actions in favor of Obama but please take it with a large grain of salt as it is in no way complete. In case someone asks, of course there are a small number of stars that support the John McCain / Sarah Palin ticket like Sylvester Stallone, John Voight, Ted Nugent and Charlie Daniels.

It is no secret that most Hollywood and music stars are liberals and have become a reliable source of campaign cash for Democratic candidates. So far according to the Center for Responsive Politics the music and entertainment industry has given over $ 5.6 million to the Obama presidential effort and donated $ 3.4 million to the Hillary Clinton campaign. How did John McCain fare you ask? His campaign has received $ 885,000, total.

Not included are many rap and hip-hop stars like 50 Cent, Chamillionare, Scarface, etc., because around 95% of their community supports Obama’s candidacy. To list them all would take forever. They support Obama by using clothes with Obama’s image on them on stage, by putting up Obama or Obama/Biden banners at their concerts, etc. Almost all speak favorably of the candidate and hope the more outspoken members of their community tone down their support for fear of alienating voters that do not understand what their music is about. Some artists have said they support and will vote for Obama because he is one of them. Others say he is the most qualified for the job with race having nothing to do with their decision. To say that they are excited about this election is an understatement!

Below the stars, more or less in alphabetical order, listed by their last name. Looking for Oprah? She’s under W for Winfrey. How about Jay-Z? He’s under C for Shawn Carter. Linda Evans? Try E for Linda Evans.

Enjoy. Or not.

Most people outside of the hip-hop community missed the significance of the gesture but it quickly became controversial. In a mater of days after the controversy that a presidential candidate for the first time ever used hip-hop inspired gestures during a speech had reached a crescendo, it was learned that the gesture could be related to a song by Jay-Z called “Dirt Off Your Shoulder”. The gesture meant shaking those that hate you off or getting rid of negative energy. Obama and his campaign have said that in his iPod Obama has songs by Jay-Z….

Later on September 5, 2008 Oprah stated to TMZ that she would love to have Palin on, after the election, as the staff had not discussed the Palin appearance and she had made the decision not have her show become a platform for candidates.

List of Hollywood, music and sport stars for Obama

UPDATE October 5, 2008: An updated and much longer list has been posted HERE.

The original list was posted September 8, 2008 and it can be found here.

The stars were chosen because they have either been recently in the news or were run across in my non-scientific Internet search. A short explanation is given about some of their comments or actions in favor of Obama but please take it with a large grain of salt as it is in no way complete. In case someone asks, of course there are a small number of stars that support the John McCain / Sarah Palin ticket like Sylvester Stallone, John Voight, Ted Nugent and Charlie Daniels.

It is no secret that most Hollywood and music stars are liberals and have become a reliable source of campaign cash for Democratic candidates. So far according to the Center for Responsive Politics the music and entertainment industry has given over $ 5.6 million to the Obama presidential effort and donated $ 3.4 million to the Clinton campaign. How did John McCain fare you ask? His campaign has received $ 885,000, total.

Not included are many rap and hip-hop stars like 50 Cent, Chamillionare, Scarface, etc., because around 95% of their community supports Obama’s candidacy. To list them all would take forever. They support Obama by using clothes with Obama’s image on them on stage, by putting up Obama or Obama/Biden banners at their concerts, etc. Almost all speak favorably of the candidate and hope the more outspoken members of their community tone down their support for fear of alienating voters that do not understand what their music is about. Some artists have said they support and will vote for Obama because he is one of them. Others say he is the most qualified for the job with race having nothing to do with their decision. To say that they are excited about this election is an understatement!

Below the stars, more or less in alphabetical order, listed by their last name. Looking for Oprah? She’s under W for Winfrey. How about Jay-Z? He’s under C for Shawn Carter. Linda Evans? Try E for Linda Evans.

Enjoy. Or not.

Christopher Bridges (Ludacris): April 2008 in a concert the rapper said Obama had his unwavering support on his bid to become President of the USA. In July 2008 the Obama campaign has distanced themselves from Ludacris because of his song “Politics: Obama is Here” that contains some controversial material the campaign said was outrageously offensive, something akin to: President Bush is mentally handicapped, Vice President Cheney belongs in a wheel chair paralyzed, an Obama presidency is destiny, criticized Reverend Jessie Jackson, and called Hillary Clinton a b***h.

Jackson Browne: On August 14, 2008 he sued the Ohio Republican party (ORp) and the Republican National Committee (RNC) because the ORp used his 1977 song “Running on Empty” in a TV ad. The ad poked fun at Obama because of his comments to tune up cars and inflate their tires to make the US independent of foreign oil. Browne has been a liberal all his life and thought that if his music was used in Republican ads the public might think he endorses McCain. Since 2004 he has contributed at least $ 4,300 to Obama’s coffers. After the lawsuit was filed the ORp pulled the ad. Browne is asking for around $75,000 in damages.

April 2008 after the ABC debate with Hillary Clinton, in a speech a few days later, Obama used the the motion of brushing dirt off his shoulder to make a point. Most people outside of the hip-hop community missed the significance of the gesture but it quickly became controversial. In a mater of days after the controversy that a presidential candidate for the first time ever used hip-hop inspired gestures during a speech had reached a crescendo, it was learned that the gesture could be related to a song by Jay-Z called “Dirt Off Your Shoulder”. The gesture meant shaking those that hate you off or getting rid of negative energy. Obama and his campaign have said that in his iPod Obama has songs by Jay-Z….

He added that instead of Palin, McCain should have chosen Michelle Obama as his running mate.

John Cougar Mellencamp: February 4, 2008 the singer was annoyed that the McCain campaign was using his music at their rallies so his representatives asked the campaign to stop using his music.

September 10, 2008

Is Sarah Palin the raptress and hip-hoptress of politics?

The East Coast-West Coast liberal establishment does not know what to make of Sarah Palin. She is unlike anything they have had to deal with in years, if ever. To their eyes she is a woman who has the audacity of challenging the status quo by dressing differently, speaking differently, moving differently, holding a different set of beliefs and whose moral compass points in a different direction than their own. An abomination, something similar to what the establishment thought about rap and hip-hop when they first came out and started gaining strength and followers. Remember all those holier than thou politicians, commentators and religious people, most all of them hypocrites, that denounced the artists because they were polluting the culture and poisoning the minds of those that heard their music? I believe Sarah Palin is thought of in the same way by Democrats and their supporters as Republicans and their supporters thought of the first successful rap and hip-hop artists many years ago. They are justly afraid of the new ideas and the reality that Palin represents and the willingness of people to hear her out.

To the Democrats horrified realization, after only one televised appearance in which she gave one speech, Palin immediately and strongly connected with a demographic composed of millions and millions of Americans that since the 1980’s Reagan era had not had a strong voice or a supporter in politics who shared their views and I don’t mean the usual crowd of the religious right, the NRA or GOP conservatives but a whole amalgam of disgruntled voters. Fearful libs realized that if they didn’t neutralize her immediately, she could become a star. So they did their best to slime her in the days before her speech at the RNC in the Twin Cities. Her second public appearance proved how right they were as Sarah rocked those present at the convention and those watching at home in Middle America.

She spoke to them in their language, like rap and hip-hop speaks to those in the ‘hood. Palin is as street as conservatives get with their base because she talks the talk after having walked the walk. She is one of them, not a fake not a poser but someone with a lot of credibility. She started out as a PTA mom who wanted to change the system, became a City Mayor, then a State Governor and now is a VP nominee. While I cannot draw a responsible, credible or logical similitude between Palin and any artist that started helping out at a street corner to make some bucks, who then began “singing” on the side and after years of hard work ended up giving concerts all over the world, being flown in private jets with so much bling and people that he needs two planes to travel; some might get the similarity I am trying to portray. As in any activity success can be ephemeral and hard to come by.

I guess saying the “make love not war” mantra or the “why can’t we just get along” phrase spoken by libs only applies to conservatives and Iraq. Because as Palin has found out there is an all out war against her and her family. A ghetto is not exclusive to the inner cities, it can become a frame of mind and applied to any area of the country. Palin does not share the appropriate area code because she comes from the Alaskan boonies, Palin does not belong to the right clubs or knows the right people, Palin has not kissed or paid respects to those who consider themselves above her on the lib side of the power ladder, and some even say she is the wrong gender with the wrong skin color for this historic election. In liberal circles Palin is painted as an outsider looking in but so far no one will unlock and open the door to her and, God forbid, her kind.

But like the backlash suffered by those that opposed rap and hip-hop, the backlash against the lib establishment has been huge and building in strength for some time. Look at magazines and newspapers that have lost thousands of subscriptions and advertising dollars, TV and cable shows that have kept the same number of viewers for months or in some cases lost viewers and websites that once were mainstream but now only preach to the quire. The folks know what they want to see and hear once they find it, not what interested parties tell them is right and politically correct.

How long will it take libs to understand that saying and writing falsehoods about Sarah Palin hurts them the most? To many on the political left Sarah walks on hoofs the size of diner plates and has a long tail ending in a spear tip, she wears a tight black leather dominatrix suit, holds a bullwhip in one hand and an assault weapon in the other, has horns on her forehead, exhales fire and steam, speaks in tongues, has a pig’s face, wears lipstick and uses her curvaceous body and good looks to make men horny. That is not the woman conservatives, many independents and dare I say it some Hillary supporters have fallen in love with.

In my opinion libs should remember the number of careers, reputations, businesses and congregations destroyed once the hypocrisy about those opposing rap and hip-hop was revealed. Once the sham was exposed, there was no stopping the music with its new reality getting out to the world. Women in particular are starting to get fed up with those gender bashing. They already saw Hillary Clinton go through the wringer and this time are not willing to give those piling up on Palin the benefit of the doubt about their intentions, not for a second time.

List of Hollywood and music stars that favor Obama

UPDATE October 5, 2008: An updated and much longer list has been posted HERE.

It is no secret that most Hollywood and music stars are liberals and have become a reliable source of campaign cash for Democratic candidates. By May 21, 2008 the music and entertainment industry had given $ 4 million to the Obama and $ 3.4 million to the Clinton campaigns. How did John McCain fare you ask? His campaign received $ 636,000, total.

Below is a partial list of some of the many Hollywood and music stars that support Barack Obama for president. They were chosen because they have either been recently in the news or were run across in my non-scientific Internet search. A short explanation is given about some of their comments or actions in favor of Obama but please take it with a large grain of salt as it is in no way complete. In case someone asks, of course there is a small number of stars that support John McCain like Sylvester Stallone and Charlie Daniels.

Not included are many hip-hop stars like 50 Cent, Chamillionare, Scarface, etc., because around 95% of their community supports Obama’s candidacy. To list them all would take forever. Several use clothes with Obama’s image on them on stage, speak favorably of the candidate and hope the more outspoken members of the community tone down their support for fear of alienating voters that do not understand what their music is about. Some artists have said they support and will vote for Obama because he is one of them while others say he is the most qualified for the job, race having nothing to do with their decision. To say that they are excited about this election is an understatement!

In no particular order or preference:

Jackson Browne: On August 14, 2008 he sued the Ohio Republican party (ORp) and the Republican National Committee (RNC) because the ORp used his 1977 song “Running on Empty” in a TV ad. The ad poked fun at Obama because of his comments to tune up cars and inflate their tires to make the US independent of foreign oil. Browne has been a liberal all his life and thought that if his music was used in Republican ads the public might think he endorses McCain. Since 2004 he has contributed at least $ 4,300 to Obama’s coffers. After the lawsuit was filed the ORp pulled the ad. Browne is asking for around $75,000 in damages.

Shawn Carter (Jay-Z): March 3, 2008 an audio only voice recording made by the rapper is put out asking voters to vote for Obama on the Mar 4 Ohio Democratic primaries. The rapper has said he supports Obama for president. April 2008 after the ABC debate with Hillary Clinton, in a speech a few days later, Obamausedthe the motion of brushing dirt off his shoulder to make a point. Most people outside of the hip-hop community missed the significance of the gesture but it quickly became controversial. In a mater of days after the controversy that a presidential candidate for the first time ever used hip-hop inspired gestures during a speech had reached a crescendo, it was learned that the gesture could be related to a song by Jay-Z called “Dirt Off Your Shoulder”. The gesture meant shaking those that hate you off or getting rid of negative energy. Obama and his campaign have said that in his iPod Obama has songs by Jay-Z….

Heart: On September 4, 2008 a “cease-and-desist” letter was sent by singers Ann and Nancy Willson to the McCain campaign because they were using their 1970’s song “Barracuda” without their permission. The sisters added that if the McCain campaign had asked for permission it would have been denied. Republican Vice Presidential nominee Sarah Palin’s nickname in High School was Sarah Barracuda thus the use of the song. The campaign says they have paid all necessary licenses to ASCAP (American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers) and the song is available for public performances as long as the licensing fees are paid.

Christopher Bridges (Ludacris): April 2008 in a concert the rapper said Obama had his unwavering support on his bid to become President of the USA. In July 2008 the Obama campaign has distanced themselves from Ludacris because of his song “Politics: Obamais Here” that contains some controversial material the campaign said was outrageously offensive, something akin to: President Bush is mentally handicapped, Vice President Cheney belongs in a wheel chair paralyzed, an Obama presidency is destiny, criticized Reverend Jessie Jackson, and called Hillary Clinton a b***h.

Jon Bon Jovi: On September 5, 2008 the singer and his wife Dorothea hosted over 100 guests for a $ 30,800 per person fund raising diner in favor of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and the Obama campaign. Obama gave an very short speech, about 8 minutes long, to the guests before mingling.

Oprah Winfrey: On September 5, 2008 the Drudge Report said that the show is receiving a lot of emails asking that Sarah Palin be on. Half of the staff really wants Palin to appear but that Oprah and a couple of her people do not because it might hurt Obama.
