I need to remember this!

Philippians 4:4-9

New International Version (NIV)

Final Exhortations

4 Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! 5 Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. 6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. 8 Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. 9 Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.

Photoshopping fun

I got this photo in an email from a relative. The kicker is my sibling’s grandson, so a something-something nephew.

The original is slightly out of focus and a tad overexposed from the bright sun, but the pose is SO good!

It is SO RARE to get a really good action sports photo, especially when the photographer is just amateur mom with a point-and-shoot camera. But this one is fantastic. So I did some photo-shopping on it.

I also did a gravatar.

This kind of tweaking is very easy for me to do. I’m seriously talking about 10 minutes tops. So say $5 worth. I’m just mentioning it in case you’ve got a photo you really wish was better so you could stick into your Christmas cards.

First v Forty-Fourth

I’m sure that, if you are a p.c. multi-culti type, you will approve of our latest presidential Thanksgiving proclamation. Personally, I’m inclined to see it as a symptom of why Obama is such a weak leader. Click to embiggen.

Discharge damaged batteries

Nov 29, 2011: NHTSA Opens Investigation into EV Batteries After Replicating Chevy Volt Fire

Reuters – After putting a Chevy Volt through a crash test, the NHTSA had put the plug-in hybrid out in a parking lot, seemingly awaiting the scrapper. Three weeks after the test though, a fire starting at the battery pack engulfed the Volt and damaged several nearby vehicles. This prompted the NHTSA to launch an investigation in electric vehicle battery packs.

Over the course of three days, the NHTSA conducted studies on three other battery packs, simulating an accident and rollover. One of the packs recorded a heat spike a day after the simulated accident, but no fire. It was then rotated 180 degrees as it would be in a rollover, and within hours sparks and smoke were seen emitting from the battery pack.

Another pack, undergoing a similar accident and rollover test, caught fire a week after the initial test. These two incidents are what have prompted the NHTSA to further investigate not just the Chevy Volt, but all electric vehicles with lithium-ion battery packs.

It’s too early to tell what, if any, impact this will have on electric vehicle sales and, and the attitude of people towards them. It is also important to note that the NHTSA did not follow GM’s procedures for discharging a battery that has been damaged (because GM didn’t bother to tell the NHTSA). But as electric vehicles become more prevalent, these are the kinds of issues that will keep cropping up, and automakers like GM need to ensure that they control the dialogue. That starts with getting the word out about the right way to deal with a beat-up battery.

Try to imagine

Click graphics to embiggen.

MIKA BRZEZINSKI makes me wanna puke

Brzezinski on November 21, 2011 edition of MSNBC’s Morning Joe — “Wow. It’s really not surprising, coming from me, but that’s about the most arrogant and un-self-aware — and those are probably the only words I can use — thing for any politician in this Republican field to say….Someone needs a bath, and I don’t think it’s the people from Occupy Wall Street….It’s absolutely disgusting. It’s a very angry way to start the show. I’m extremely sorry. But it’s the first time I’d seen that [clip], and it literally made my skin crawl.”

It made her skin crawl? Really?!

Look at this clip from April 2011 and keep in mind that it’s the SAME WOMANhttp://www.mrctv.org/node/76517.

Now .. TRY to imagine (if you can!) any Right-Winger (a) actually PLAYING a vile, personal attack video about Ted Kennedy’s brain cancer (provided one existed) on a morning news and talk show and then (b) LAUGHING uncontrollably at how very, very funny said video was.

BILL MAHER makes me wanna puke

Maher quoted in November 21, 2011, Newsweek — “When I point out that Sarah Palin is a vainglorious braggart, a liar, a whiner, a bully who sells patriotism like a pimp, and the leader of a family of inbred weirdos straight out of The Hills Have Eyes, that’s not sexist. I’m saying it because it’s true.”

I think Glenn Beck is fairly comparable to Bill Maher, not in humor or perspicacity, but in that they both do political comedy and political commentary. Try to imagine Beck saying, “When I point out that Barack Obama is a vainglorious braggart, a liar, a whiner, a bully who sells patriotism like a pimp, and the leader of a family of inbred weirdos straight out of The Hills Have Eyes, that’s not racist. I’m saying it because it’s true.”  Can you?

Well … actually the braggart, liar, whiner and bully parts, sure. Because they’re all true statements directed at the behavior of an elected public official.

What I can’t imagine is Beck making disgusting remarks about Obama’s family. And if he did … how BALLISTIC do you think the media reaction would be about it?  I’m thinking weeks of screaming RAAAAACISM!!!!! and condemning Beck to the fiery afterlife they don’t believe in.

Did you know that, all during 2007, the media speculated on Al Gore as a possible candidate and, even after it was clear he would not run, Gore still tied with Edwards in the polls?

Remind you of anyone?

Recall any Republicans making gratuitously repulsive remarks about the family of not-running-for-president Al Gore?

After all, he hails from the Great Bible Belt State of Tennessee where everyone is a racist, red-neck, bitterly clinging cracker with a family tree that doesn’t fork … unless they’re Democrats, in which case it doesn’t matter how many lies or stupid remarks they make, they’re all oh-so-BRILLIANT

Chrissy’s Site Bites: http://news.webshots.com/photo/2424024450056011884UOJLAL

and oh-so-TOLERANT of others

Chrissy’s Site Bites: http://news.webshots.com/photo/2327641290056011884eGpZds

If Gore had a disabled child and one of ours had made a remark like Maher did about Palin’s family, I’m thinking we’d all know about it, because the media would’ve played it about a bazillion times after which they’d pull their chins and seriously discuss how STOOOPID and INTOLERANT such attitudes are.

Chrissy’s Site Bites: http://news.webshots.com/photo/2587841680056011884pezFZA

Let’s revisit the 2007 race for the Democratic nomination for President, shall we? In November 2007, there were TEN Democrats running for the nomination: Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, John Edwards, Bill Richardson, Dennis Kucinich, Joe Biden, Mike Gravel, Christopher Dodd, Tom Vilsack and Evan Bayh.

So try to imagine, it’s 2007 and, let’s say, Rush Limbaugh comes out with this gem: “You’ve got to feel very bad for Joe Biden. I mean, he’s been led, so far, by Edwards, Gore, Clinton and Obama. I’m rooting for him. You know? Because, look, in a country with only two political parties, the Democrat can always win. I mean, at least he eats with a knife and fork. I mean, he is all that stands between us and the rise of the apes.”

Can you imagine the SHRIEKING from the Left Stream Media about the RACIST and SEXIST references to Obama and Clinton as “apes”?

So can I.

Chris Matthews makes me wanna puke

On November 15, 2011, Larry Elder asked Chris Matthews if he considers himself an “objective, down the middle journalist.”

Matthews said, “No, I’m not down the middle. I’m slightly to the left.”

Elder: “Slightly to the left?”

Matthews: “I’d say, 40 yard line.”

Speaking of “un-self-aware” … THIS is “40 yard line”? Seriously?!
