In case you can’t read the tag line (Impish) its goes:
“Who needs to usurp a Chinese Lunar Year when you(r kind) have your own bloody museum?”
FAIR WARNING GIVEN: I’ve been on a bloody tear ever since Saturday when I came across the subject of today’s Parting Shot. Because I’m highly insulted and cheesed beyond words I’m even less inclined to be restrained or respectful of certain individuals in positions of power than normal in this issue. Best to place your beverage of choice in a travel mug with a secure lid, return your tray table to its upright position along with your seat and securely fasten your personal restraint devices, its likely to get damned bumpy around here today! It’s highly likely that before any of the liberal readers even make it to my Parting Shot they will be howling for my bloody and wanting to Occupy my Lap Top!
However before we get into any of that I have to first pay off on a bet I made with Impish regarding the Super Bowl.
As you know from our comments section Impish and I agreed to disagree on the probably outcome of the game. When I contacted him Sunday about an hour before the game we agreed to a small wager on the outcome. The short of it is I lost – he won and now I have to pay up. So here it is in all its painful payment.
In my (not always humble) opinion and from my point of view the outcome of this game just goes to show how pervasively far Obama’s Share Your Wealth and the Occupy Anything We Can Because We’re Too Lazy To Work mind set has become. The team with the better record and who was expected to win was clearly forced to give welfare points to the Giants at least twice during the game. This caused the better team (richer in wins) to lose.
[Hey I said I’d pay off I never said I would not bitch about having to do so!]
Jihad Awareness Month (Hat Tip: Barack Obama)
After complaints from Muslim organizations, the Obama Administration is eliminating all counter-Jihad training in the U.S. government.
Because you know it might save some lives of “The Great Satan” and that is offensive to Muslims.
Apparently counter jihad training for those who have reasons to fear being targets or work in a place conducive to another Sept 11th type attack is a “negative stereotype of Islam”.
People like Don Schindler our resident ill-informed by loudly vocal liberal loony will try to tell you that you have nothing to fear that who countries if Muslims do not gather and chant Death to America and that news reports in the blatantly liberal media reporting the breaking up and capture of terrorist cells intent on destruction both here and in foreign countries are just sensationalism and hype. According to Don I imagine we should lovingly embrace these bastards and allow the easier access to placing the knife in our backs but only after educating feeding and housing them at our expense!
Round and round they go.
This is a still image, but if you move your eyes around the central square pattern, the stars will seem to move. The effect is due to a phenomenon that’s colloquially called “eye jitter.” The eyes, constantly moving by imperceptible amounts, amplify the difference between the two patterns and create the illusion of motion.
Who’s Hugging Whom?
Here’s another accidental optical illusion photo that’s been circulating lately. When I first saw it, it seemed as if the guy’s head wasn’t in proportion with rest of his body… Only then I realized his girlfriend wasn’t the one reading the newspapers. Instead, she is the one standing behind the couch and hugging her boyfriend. It becomes harder to see the illusion once you understand what is going on here… You decide if it’s good!
Heikie Weber’s Fantastic Flooring
Imagine stepping into a room in the local art museum and suddenly not knowing where to step because the ground appears to be completely uneven. But that’s exactly what would happen if you happen to visit Kunstraum München in Munich, Germany. At least, if you happened to visit after Heikie Weber finished putting her installations up at the gallery.
That’s because the artist’s surreal creations convert ordinary rooms into mind-melding creations that seem impossible to walk on…of course, with art this fantastic, it seems a shame to trod on it anyway! But the most impressive part is how Heike does it…
From gentle, sea-like blue waves to red wobbling carpets that look even stranger when reflected in the mirror, Miss Weber’s creations turn something as simple as walking through a museum into a mind-altering experience.
Here’s a close up. Don’t fall in!
A Senior Moment
Several days ago as I left a meeting at church, I gave myself a pat down for my keys. They were not in my pockets.
A quick search in the church meeting room revealed nothing.
Then I realized, I must have left them in the car. So, I headed for the parking lot.
My wife has scolded me many times for leaving the keys in the ignition. My theory is the ignition is the best place not to lose them. Her theory is that the car will be stolen.
As I exited the church, I concluded my wife’s theory was right. The parking lot was empty.
I immediately called the police, gave them my location, confessed that I had left my keys in the car, and that it had been stolen.
Then I made the most difficult call of all, “Honey,” I stammered. I always call her “honey” in times like these. “I left my keys in the car, and it has been stolen.”
There was a brief period of silence, and then she said, “I dropped you off!”
Now it was my time to be silent. Embarrassed, I said, “Well, will you come and get me.”
She retorted, “I will, as soon as I convince this policeman I have not stolen your car!”
If Alcohol Labels Were Honest
Obama and a Skunk: What They Have in Common.
Yup this was an insulting and deliberate Obama bashing joke and I proudly admit it and proclaim it. However he has it coming and arguably took the first swing. You’ll see what I mean as soon as you reach the Parting Shot.
But first a response from the Obama camp to this joke:
Lets go with a two-for today, its been a while on the insights
Impish (thanks to me) had a very good last Word on Saturday (with a truly disappointing response from you readers I might add) regarding the goings on in Georgia as the relate to Obama being on the ballot there come November and his contempt for the court system in Georgia. While I did respond in the comments section of the issue I could not get this graphic into the comments. I was going to just let it slide but since the May NOT BE Legally Qualified to Be Commander in Socialist Turban cheesed me off at an epic level I decided not to.
DOESN’T PASS THE SMELL TEST: A Federal District Court judge in New York has ruled that the Clorox Pet Products Co. must stop running an ad claiming that their “Fresh Step” cat litter product is superior to Arm
& Hammer cat litters. Judge Jed S. Rakoff said he found it “highly implausible” that 11 panelists could “stick their noses in jars of
excrement and report 44 independent times that they smelled nothing unpleasant.” Therefore, he found the TV commercial’s claims “literally false” and allowed a lawsuit by Church & Dwight, the company that owns Arm & Hammer, to proceed.

PITY THE FOOL: Anquin St. Junious, 32, can scarcely walk and can only feed himself with a special lightweight spoon, said his attorney. The La Crosse, Wisc., man is accused of stabbing a bartender before he was badly beaten himself. But although St. Junious sat “motionless” in a wheelchair in court, Judge Scott Horne concluded the defendant was less disabled than dishonest: surveillance video shows that while awaiting his court hearing, St. Junious was doing pushups in jail. So instead of releasing him over his supposedly poor medical condition as his attorney had requested, the judge doubled his bond. St. Junious “left the courtroom humiliated,” a reporter noted. (AC/La Crosse Tribune)
…Advice to his lawyer: Check for video cameras at the crime scene before arguing his innocence at trial.
ANOTHER CRIMINAL CASE WRAPPED UP: The Buffalo News describes the suburb of Tonawanda as “sleepy,” but things were tense after a woman called police to say her son was holding two hostages in his home. The town’s SWAT team surrounded the residence and evacuated neighbors, but when they ordered the man via bullhorn to drop his weapons and come out,
nothing happened. The woman insisted her son was armed, so police stood watch from 5:45 a.m. until they finally reached the man at 10:45 a.m. on his cell phone, and he stepped out as requested. He hadn’t heard the commotion because he was asleep. “It was just a guy who had too much to drink,” said police Capt. Jonathan Scott. “It turned out not to be a hostage situation.” Still, the unnamed man, who is on leave from the Marines after serving in Iraq, was charged with fourth-degree criminal mischief and taken for a mental examination. (RC/Buffalo News)
…Wait: they charged a sleepy war veteran with a crime and let the mother go free?
ARE YOU JOKING? “I don’t think the national anthem is something we ought to be joking around with,” said Indiana state Sen. Vaneta Becker, explaining her proposed law to regulate the singing of “The Star-Spangled Banner” — the national anthem. Under the bill, the state education department would create “performance standards,” and anyone singing the anthem for school events would have to agree to comply –and face a $25 fine if the performance broke the rules. Becker said she was prompted by a constituent who was upset about altered lyrics that had been used in a school program, but says she had also heard the song
parodied on TV. (AC/Indianapolis Star)
…In some public schools, just singing “the land of the free and the home of the brave” is parody enough!
LET’S CHANGE THEIR NAME FROM “THE PALMETTO STATE” TO “THE ZOMBIE STATE”:
In the middle of a court fight to determine whether South Carolina’s Voter Identification law is Constitutional (so far: no), Kevin Shwedo, director of the state’s Department of Motor Vehicles, announced that “more than 900” people listed in state records as deceased have “recently voted” in elections. “If you have voted after you are dead,” Shwedo told reporters, “there is a goo d, strong possibility that you did something illegal.” (RC/AP)
…On the other hand, surely the dead would do a much better job of electing honest representatives.
SABER RATTLING: Police responded to a 911 call from a Toys ‘R’ Us store on Hayden Island in Portland, Ore., because of a man inside attacking customers. He allegedly assaulted three people and then went out to the parking lot with weapon in hand. Police tried twice to use a Taser on him, but he deflected the attack. Eventually, police pinned the 33-year-old man to the ground. The unnamed man was taken to a hospital for mental evaluation, after which he faces “several criminal charges,” says Portland Police Bureau spokesman Sgt. Pete Simpson. The reason for the mental evaluation may be due to his choice of weapon: a toy light
saber from Star Wars. None of his alleged victims required medical attention. (MS/Portland Oregonian)

Newt’s Ridiculous Wikipedia Page Edits
Newt Gingrich can’t change his past, but that won’t stop him from trying to hide it. The former speaker’s communications director, Joe DeSantis has made more than 60 changes to Newt’s Wikipedia page, including deleting any mentions of his three marriages and his House ethics charges. A Wikipedia editor even had to comment that “pointing out factual error is one thing, but your input should not go beyond that.” Another editor said “the fact that Callista is Speaker Gingrich’s third wife is well-known and indisputable. Please do not remove it from her biography.” DeSantis, however, continues to defend his changes.
Of course the fact that this is critical of a Republican will go by totally unnoticed by liberal Kool-aid swillers like old Don, right Don? Well shame on you Don for thinking you liberals are owed an uneven playing field and not being man enough to admit when your “facts” are wrong after taking us unnecessarily to task or that we call bullshit on all politicians, that it just so happens SOME are so much more full of it than others!

Eastwood: I’m Not Politically Affiliated With Obama
Chrysler ad a political football By Mary Papenfuss, Newser Staff Posted Feb 7, 2012 2:28 AM CST
(Newser) – God bless America … and the Chrysler bailout … seemed to be the message that left football fans misty-eyed after Clint Eastwood’s Super Bowl Chrysler ad. It’s “halftime” in America, and we’re all pulling together for a brighter economic future, says the gravelly-voiced star. But Eastwood was opposed to the bailout that made the Chrysler turnaround possible, and now the ad has become a political football as Dems score points with it and the GOP tackles it, notes ABC News. “Saving the American Auto Industry: Something Eminem and Clint Eastwood can agree on,” crowed White House spokesman Dan Pfeiffer on Twitter, referring to Eminem’s Chrysler ad during last year’s Super Bowl. “Powerful spot,” chimed in Obama re-election strategist David Axelrod. But George Bush’s political maven Karl Rove snapped that he was “offended” by the ad, which he argued was orchestrated by the administration to paint a rosy future.
Wait a minute there, pardner. “I am certainly not politically affiliated with Mr. Obama,” Eastwood shot back to Fox News. The ad “was meant to be a message about job growth and the spirit of America. I think all politicians will agree with it.” Ironically, the Republican star and former mayor of Carmel, Calif., blasted the $12.5 billion bailout that saved Chrysler’s bacon. “We shouldn’t be bailing out the banks and car companies. If a CEO can’t figure out how to make his company profitable, then he shouldn’t be the CEO,” he said at the time. Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne said the ad has nothing to do with politics, but was intended as a tribute to Chrysler workers and “the resilience of America.” Here’s the final irony: Chrysler isn’t an all-American company. Italy’s Fiat now owns a majority share.
Rush Limbaugh: Eastwood ‘Got Scammed’ on Ad
Super Bowl spot ended up being for Democrats, not USA, he says
(Newser) – Rush Limbaugh thinks Clint Eastwood “got suckered into” shilling for Democrats in the Chrysler Super Bowl commercial at the center of recent controversy. “I think he got scammed. I think he got roped into doing something he thought was patriotic and ended up being played,” Limbaugh said on his radio show today. Conservatives need to make a similar commercial, he says. “We need to have something like this ready to go next August-September when college football kicks up.”
The ad’s “working together” theme is standard fare for when Democrats are about to face a drubbing, Limbaugh added, according to Politico. “When the Democrats are on the ropes, ‘Time out! Time out, time out! We’ve got to stop all the partisanship,'” he said. “Of course that means, ‘Republicans need to shut up. Stop being critical! We’ve got to all come together now.’”
Now I have to sat that next to ”The Duke”, John Wayne ( said with hat off head bowed and quiet hushed reverence) there is no actor I know of with a greater love of America or understanding of what it means and takes to be a true American than Clint Eastwood.
I watched the ad in question during Super Bowl XLVI and I came away from it with the message Clint is quoting above based on his being an American Icon and Football being one of your two national pass time sports. It sort of made me feel vaguely patriotic and all 4th of July-ish inside ( ok that COULD have been just gas from the hot wings reacting with the mini pepperoni pizza calzones).
However apparently the Obama administration is taking a play from the Occupy Movement’s play book and occupying this ad. While I hate Rush Limbaugh almost as much as Obama and think he does the country a disservice and would best serve us by fatally over ego masturbating to death (Holy Mary Mother of God I cannot believe I am about to type these next words) I think Rush is correct and spot on Clint somehow got hosed in this either deliberate and premeditatedly or through and Occupy Movement Obama sponsored high-jacking.
I cannot say I’m surprised. Since he’s clearly such an Islamic terrorist lover, (see The Parting Shot below) how far a step is it to being a Technical Media Terrorist and high-jacking Celebrities and their commercial messages for your on purposes? I hope the next time Clint Eastwood sees Obama of any of his terror media tweeters he does the rest of America proud and goes all Philo Beddoe on their asses and turns then Every which Way But Lose until he beats some truth, honor and moderate sensibility into them. Sadly I suspect however that’s too much to ask even for a Patriotic American Icon like Clint.
Woolery is one of the founders of the political action committee RestartCongress.org, along with Mark Young and Michigan’s 41st Secretary of State, Terri Lynn Land. The organization is dedicated to passing an amendment to the United States Constitution establishing term limits for members of the United States Congress.
His view points though designed to be comedic are well thought out, elegant in their simplistic approach and refreshing.
Consider Chuck Woolery as a Third Party write in candidate, I mean seriously who better to run the Washington Government Game than a game show host? Can he possibly do any worse than the Muslim Clown Prince of Arrogant Buffoonery we have now?
One thing for sure Chuck Woolery (who is a Navy veteran) would NEVER for a nanosecond have considered the latest travesty and insult to servicemen being perpetuated by the Towel headed Muslim Lickspittle in Chief and aimed right at the families and memories of 281 fallen US Marines.
(See below but be prepared to be angry and outraged)
FAIR WARNING GIVEN!
Obama Sides with Islamic Iran on their 1983 Bombing that Killed 241 US Marines
Once again, Obama sides with our mortal enemies, a cornerstone of his foreign policy meticulously detailed in my book, The Post-American Presidency: The Obama Administration’s War on America. This is consistent with the same anti-America, anti-freedom, pro-jihad platform we have suffered the last three years.
Marines carry Lance Cpl. Paul Kotoucout of the rubble following the 1983 truck bombing of Marine barracks in Beirut. The blast killed 241 U.S. servicemen.
Back in September 2007, there was official recognition that Islamic Iran declared jihad warfare on America back in ’83 when they murdered 241 Marines in Beirut in what was the single largest non-nuclear explosion since World War II. Iran had to pay $2.65 billion to the families of the 241 U.S. service members killed in the 1983 bombing of the U.S. Marine barracks in Beirut.
U.S. District Judge Royce C. Lamberth described his ruling as the largest-ever such judgment by an American court against another country. “These individuals, whose hearts and souls were forever broken, waited patiently for nearly a quarter century for justice to be done,” he said.
Iran created the Muslim jihad group Hezbollah, which carried out the homicide bombing in Beirut. It was the worst Islamic (or any) terrorist act against U.S. targets until the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks.
Special to WorldTribune.com
WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama, in a bid to reconcile with the
Teheran regime, has blocked legislation that would hold Iran accountable for
the Hezbollah bombing that killed 241 U.S. Marines in 1983.
A survivors group has asserted that the administration is pressuring Democrats in Congress not to support a bill that would enforce massive judgments against Iran by the families of the Marines. In 2007, a U.S. federal district court judge found Iran liable for the Beirut bombing and ordered Teheran to pay $2.65 billion in damages.
A U.S. Marine searches the rubble on Oct. 31, 1983, after an Oct. 23 attack on the headquarters of the U.S. troops of the multinational force in Beirut, Lebanon. In twin attacks on U.S. and French military installations, suicide bombers driving trucks killed 299 French and Americans, including 241 U.S. service members.
“This administration talks a lot about sanctions, but we know Iran is watching this case closely and, astonishingly, Obama’s people are taking Iran’s side,” Lynn Smith Derbyshire, a lobbyist for the legislation, said.
Ms. Derbyshire, whose brother Marine Capt. Vincent Smith was killed in the 1983 bombing, said survivors and their families were urging Congress to support amendments to the Iran Sanctions Bill, scheduled for mark-up in the Senate Banking Committee on Feb. 2.
But they said committee members were being pressed by the White House not to vote for amendments that would hold Teheran responsible for the 1983 attack and transfer the $2.65 billion awarded in 2007. The Iran Sanctions Bill would enable U.S. sanctions on foreign companies that purchase or ship oil through the Iranian government or sell telecommunications equipment to Teheran.
“We have petitioned Congress to prevent the government of the Islamic republic of Iran from avoiding its obligations to pay judgments awarded to past and future victims and survivors of Iranian terrorism,” Ms. Derbyshire said on Jan. 30. “We’ve spoken with many sympathetic members of Congress but they won’t act while this administration is blocking what we and the
American people know is right.”
Over the last decade, the families of Iranian-sponsored attacks have won billions of dollars in suits against the Teheran regime. But the federal government, particularly the State Department, has blocked access to Iranian assets or funds in the United States.
Ms. Derbyshire said she represents more than 1,000 families across the United States in the campaign to target Teheran and its finances. The group has also lobbied Congress to strengthen the U.S. law that bans Iran from laundering money in the United States to finance Hezbollah and other insurgency proxies.
“We can show that international banks have moved billions of dollars of funds from Bank Markazi, Iran’s central bank, through banks in the U.S.,” Ms. Derbyshire said. “So far that money has been untouchable. We believe that is wrong. We are confident that most Americans would agree. Yet, the Obama administration is thwarting our efforts.”
Seems every opportunity this Arab loving asshole gets he goes out of his way to slap the American people and ESPECIALLY the military which he has repeatedly expressed his distain for. Were I one of the Marines responsible for guarding the White House after this I would be hard pressed not take hostile aggressive action on behalf of my fallen Marine brethren on this American/America hating Arab/Islam lover by lancing political pustule with a bayonet! Just HOW MUCH MORE insult must we the people tolerate before this guy gets impeached or cornered and made to give straight documentable and verifiable answers to some hard questions
[Before you go running to make asinine ignorance of the true facts showing comments about how shameful I am for making unsupported statement Don, here’s some facts to back it up: Fact 1 Fact 2 Fact 3 Fact 4 fact 5 Now chew on those Don and when you’re done put your foot back in your mouth because you are not done with chewing on it from the lat tile you mistakenly opened those liberal lips! ]
Its no secret that Obama seems to think America needs to apologize for everything it’s done historically, reducing our standing in the world to that of a sniveling, repentant bully despite the fact that it that meant the freedom of people suffering under the rule of cruel dictators or was in answer to naked aggression.
Now his treatment of and distain for our military men and women as even caught the eye of House Armed Services Committee Chairman Howard P. McKeon. Representative McKeon said that he thinks Obama and his cronies view our military as a principal adversary rather than as an asset in the pursuit of world peace. In fact McKeon when so far as to say
“President Obama’s policies often seem reflective of an ideology that treats American power as the principal adversary, not ally, to world peace.”
Obama is doing nothing short of taking sides AGAIN with a country aligned diametrically against America! Let’s be very clear about this. Obama is doing this to appease the country and leadership of Iran. A country who sponsors government run demonstrations like this:
THAT takes precedence over our fallen and their families best interests and welfare? Gives him the right to blatantly disregard a court order? You Democrats and Liberals lurking the the cyber shadows at the edge of the blog, THIS is your Messiah? THIS is your chosen one? Are you all SO desperate to be in power and control of our National Fate that you REALLY don’t care what the cost or damage for it is? Can’t you feel it when he slaps your faces along with the rest of us?
You cannot convince me that NONE of your were military or Marines. Yet you’re going to stand idly by and mutely at that and ALLOW the pencil necked Brooks Brother suited two faced sleaze balls in Foggy Bottom ( that’s where State Dept is based out of) to block a COURT ORDER allowing the dependant of these murdered Marines just compensation? Were these families minorities and the perpetrators rich or white you people would be screaming to bleed them dry PLUS a pound of flesh! Why is it different because they are Marines and Hezbollah is a bunch of toweled State sponsored terrorists? We are hitting them where it hurts them the most in their pockets depriving them of funds and paying them directly to the victims of the terrorists, but Obama has a PROBLEM with that? Well screw you Liberals and screw that closet Muslim asshole too!
What slap in the American pubic face in favor of Islam could possibly top this and be next? A Presidential Directive for a Mosque at Ground Zero? Maybe one at the Pentagon too? How about one encroaching on the 9-11Memorial Garden in Shanksville Pa.? Hell why don’t we just turn the Capitol over to them for one and pay to have the Rotunda Dome refabricated into a minaret? At least it will deprive Obama of the satisfaction of getting to slap us in the face and pride again!
I AM THE LETHAL BLOODY LEPRECHAUN AND I SAY: bloody well IMPEAH OBAMA FOR TREASON then drop the Muslim loving Shit Heel in Chief bare assed naked in the middle of the biggest Hezbollah stronghold we can find with a camera strapped on him so we can see just how friendly, peace loving and forgiving they are. Just let us know well in advance because I’m going to want to set my DVR to record it so I can play it back a couple thousand times and have some popcorn ready for the big show!
Unless of course President Obama has anything to say or do about it! Then its only for the Muslims, the Poor, the Illegal Aliens and Islamic Terrorists
