The King’s Weather Forecaster

The king wanted to go fishing, and he asked the royal weather forecaster the forecast for the next few hours. The palace meteorologist assured him that there was no chance of rain.

So the king and the queen went fishing. On the way he met a man with a
fishing pole riding on a donkey, and he asked the man if the fish were biting.

The fisherman said, “Your Majesty, you should return to the palace! In just
a short time I expect a huge rain storm.”

The king replied: “I hold the palace meteorologist in high regard. He is an educated and experienced professional. Besides, I pay him very high wages.
He gave me a very different forecast. I trust him.”

So the king continued on his way.

However, in a short time a torrential rain fell from the sky. The King and
Queen were totally soaked. Furious, the king returned to the palace and gave the order to behead the meteorologist.

Then he summoned the fisherman and offered him the prestigious position
of royal forecaster. The fisherman said, “Your Majesty, I do not know anything about forecasting. I obtain my information from my donkey. If I see my donkey’s ears drooping, it means with certainty that it will rain.”

So the king hired the donkey. And so began the practice of hiring dumb asses to work in influential positions of government. And thus the symbol of the democrat party was born.

The practice is unbroken to this day.

NORMANDY, FRANCE (June 6, 1944)

 

American Troops Destroyed Miles of France’s Pristine Shoreline

 

Three hundred French civilians were killed and thousands more were wounded today in the first hours of America’s invasion of continental Europe. Casualties were heaviest among women and children. Most of the French casualties were the result of artillery fire from American ships attempting to knock out German fortifications prior to the landing of hundreds of thousands of U.S. troops. Reports from a makeshift hospital in the French town of St. Mere Eglise said the carnage was far worse than the French had anticipated, and that reaction against the American invasion was running high. “We are dying for no reason, “said a Frenchman speaking on condition of anonymity. “Americans can’t even shoot straight. I never thought I’d say this, but life was better under Adolph Hitler.”

The invasion also caused severe environmental damage. American troops, tanks, trucks and machinery destroyed miles of pristine shoreline and thousands of acres of ecologically sensitive wetlands. It was believed that the habitat of the spineless French crab was completely wiped out, thus threatening the species with extinction. A representative of Greenpeace said his organization, which had tried to stall the invasion for over a year, was appalled at the destruction, but not surprised. “This is just another example of how the military destroys the environment without a second thought,” said Christine Moanmore. “And it’s all about corporate greed.”

Contacted at his Manhattan condo, a member of the French government-in-exile who abandoned Paris when Hitler invaded, said the invasion was based solely on American financial interests. “Everyone knows that President Roosevelt has ties to ‘big beer’,” said Pierre Le Wimp. “Once the German beer industry is conquered, Roosevelt’s beer cronies will control the world market and make a fortune.”

Administration supporters said America’s aggressive actions were based in part on the assertions of controversial scientist Albert Einstein, who sent a letter to Roosevelt speculating that the Germans were developing a secret weapon — a so-called “atomic bomb.” Such a weapon could produce casualties on a scale never seen before, and cause environmental damage that could last for thousands of years. Hitler has denied having such a weapon and international inspectors were unable to locate such weapons even after spending two long weekends in Germany. Shortly after the invasion began, reports surfaced that German prisoners had been abused by American soldiers. Mistreatment of Jews by Germans at their so-called “concentration camps” has been rumored, but so far this remains unproven.

Several thousand Americans died during the first hours of the invasion, and French officials are concerned that the uncollected corpses will pose a public-health risk. “The Americans should have planned for this in advance,” they said. “It’s their mess, and we don’t intend to help clean it up.”

The invasion is blamed on Roosevelt’s hawkish military advisers and the influence of British Prime Minister Churchill, who have repeated ignored calls for a negotiated settlement to end the war and who have reportedly rejected peace overtures from Germany through several neutral parties. Instead, the Roosevelt administration and its allies have chosen to insist on maintaining their extreme policy of demanding unconditional surrender.

There have been notable voices of opposition from sports figures and celebrities decrying the horrific violence and saying that this is not who we are.

FOOD FOR THOUGHT

The Deplorable Infidel

 

BARACK OBAMA AND THE REV. JEREMIAH WRIGHT

From March 1972 until February 2008, Jeremiah Wright – whom Barack Obama described as his “spiritual advisor,” his “mentor,” and one of the greatest preachers in America – was the pastor of Chicago’s Trinity Church of Christ (TUCC), where Obama had attended services since 1988, and where he had been a member since 1992. Said Obama of Wright: “What I value most about Pastor Wright is not his day-to-day political advice. He is much more of a sounding board for me to make sure that I am speaking as truthfully about what I believe as possible and that I’M not losing myself in some of the hype and hoopla and stress that’s involved in national politics.”

Wright embraces the tenets of black liberation theology, which seeks to foment Marxist revolutionary fervor founded on racial rather than class solidarity. His writings, public statements, and sermons reflect his conviction that America is a nation infested with racism, prejudice, and injustice. Wright is also a strong supporter of Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan. Controversy erupted in early 2008 when news reports surfaced detailing Wright’s incendiary comments. Obama initially dismissed the audio/video clips as mere “snippets,” claiming that the media were highlighting only Wright’s “most offensive words, and that his statements had been taken out of context. In May 2008, Obama finally made a move to distance himself from Wright and formally ended his membership in the church. As a result of the controversy, Wright stepped down from his position with Obama’s campaign’s African American Religious Leadership Committee. Long before the controversy over Wright had erupted, Rev. Jim Wallis. The founder of the Sojourners evangelical ministry, told an interviewer: “If you want to understand where Barack Obama gets his feeling and rhetoric from, just look at Jeremiah Wright.”

During his years as a member of TUCC, Obama had given a great deal of money to the church. In 2005, for example, he gave $5,000. The following year he gave $22,500. According to their 2005-2007 tax returns, Obama and his wife donated a total of $53,770 to TUCC during the three years following Obama’s 2004 election to the U.S. Senate. Moreover, during his tenure as a board member of the Woods Fund, Obama helped steer $6,000 to Trinity. Soon after the Wright controversy became public – and indeed threatened to derail Obama’s campaign – Wright was interviewed by author Edward Klein. Wright told Klein that “one of Barack’s closest friends” had sent him an e-mail offering him $150,000 “not to preach at all until the November presidential election.” Wright elaborated: “Barack said he wanted to meet me in secret, in a secure place… So we met in the living room of the parsonage of Trinity United Church of Chris… just Barack and me… And one of the first things Barack said was, ‘I really wish you wouldn’t do any more public speaking until after the November election… It’s gonna hurt the campaign if you do that.’” Wright replied, “I don’t see it that way. And anyway, how am I supposed to support my family?” According to Wright, Obama then said: I’m sorry you don’t see it the way I do. Do you know what your problem is? You have to tell the truth.”

“Experience hath shown, that even under the best forms of government those entrusted with power have, in time, and by slow operations, perverted it into tyranny.”

Thomas Jefferson

 

“It is a misfortune incident to republican government, though in a less degree than other governments, that those who administer it, may forget their obligations to their constituents, and prove unfaithful to their important trust.”

James Madison

 

“Government is about coercion. Limiting government is the single most important instrument for guaranteeing liberty. We’re working on a third generation which has little in the way of education about what our Constitution means and why it was written. Thus, we’ve fallen easy prey to charlatans, quacks, and hustlers.”

Dr. Walter Williams

 

WAKE UP AMERICA BEFORE IT’S TOO LATE!

 

AN OPINION FROM THE DEPLORABLE INFIDEL

The Rev. Jeremiah Wright is just one of the many far-left, America hating radicals Barack Obama associated himself with his entire life. It just amazes me how a person that hates this country as much as Barack Obama, can get elected president.

 

A SIMPLE TRUTH FOR TODAY

If you put the federal government in charge of the Sahara Desert, in five years there’d be a shortage of sand.

Astronomy Picture of the Day

The Cave Nebula in Infrared from Spitzer

Explanation: What’s happening in and around the Cave Nebula? To help find out, NASA’s orbiting Spitzer Space Telescope looked into this optically-dark star-forming region in four colors of infrared light. The Cave Nebula, cataloged as Sh2-155, is quite bright in infrared, revealing details not only of internal pillars of gas and dust, but of the illuminating star cluster too – all near the top of the image. The red glow around the Cave’s entrance is created by dust heated by bright young stars. To the right is Cepheus B, a star cluster that formed previously from the same cloud of gas and dust. Other interesting stars of Cepheus come to light in infrared as well, including those illuminating an even younger nebula toward the image bottom, and a runaway star pushing a bow shock, tinged in red near the image center. This region spans about 50 light years and lies about 2,500 light years toward the constellation of the King of Aethiopia (Cepheus).
