Narcissist in Chief strikes again

Last April, at a campaign fundraiser at the Henry Ford Museum in Detroit, President Obama had a chance to sit and reflect inside the old Montgomery, Ala., bus on which Rosa Parks made history.

“I just sat in there for a moment and pondered the courage and tenacity that is part of our very recent history but is also part of that long line of folks who sometimes are nameless, oftentimes didn’t make the history books, but who constantly insisted on their dignity, their share of the American dream,” Obama told campaign donors.

ABC called this event a “personal moment for Obama.”

Riiiiiiiiiiight. Cuz “personal” moments are always photographed, yapped about to donors, reported on by national newscasters and then recycled months later to honor the oh-so-sensitive Barack Obama on the anniversary of someone else’s courage.

The White Hut recycled the “personal moment” photo yesterday, to “honor” Rosa Parks.

Betcha didn’t know Rosa Parks Day was All About Obama, did you?

The difference between COMPLETE and FINISHED

Some say there is no difference between COMPLETE and FINISHED, that they are completely synonymous. This is not true, as this short paragraph makes clear:

When you marry the right woman, you are COMPLETE. But, when you marry the wrong woman, you are FINISHED. And when the right one catches you with the wrong one, you are COMPLETELY FINISHED!

Infidelity

Number Symbolism in the Bible

In Scripture, numbers are used not only for counting stuff, but also as symbols for or indicators of various Big Ideas.

Bible open on blue

Many of these numbers are combinations of the two most important numbers, ONE and THREE.

ONE stands for God and all things divine.

I, then, a prisoner for the Lord, urge you to live in a manner worthy of the call you have received, with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another through love, striving to preserve the unity of the spirit through the bond of peace: one body and one Spirit, as you were also called to the one hope of your call; one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all. [Eph 4:1-6]

THREE stands for God’s actions. E.g., Three visitors came to tell Abraham and Sarah they would have a son [Gen 18], God came down on to Mount Sinai on the third day [Exod 19], and, of course, Jesus rose from death on the third day.

For I handed on to you as of first importance what I also received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the scriptures; that he was buried; that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the scriptures. [I Cor 15:3]

FOUR, being ONE (God) + THREE (God’s actions), stands for God’s creative works, both as He created them and as sin distorts them. E.g., in the fourth chapter of Genesis, the first human births are recorded, shortly after which the first human murder is also recorded.

Four appears very frequently in Scripture. It is the number of the great elements (earth, air, fire, and water), directions of compass and wind (north, south, east, and west), divisions of the day (morning, noon, evening, midnight), seasons of the year (spring, summer, autumn, winter), and the phases of the moon (new, waxing, full, waning).

SEVEN, being THREE (God’s actions) plus FOUR (God’s creative works), stands for natural and divine completeness. The Bible is so chock full of sevens, it would be silly to try to quote them here. Click on the link after this quote to see a sampling.

“In the Hebrew, 7 is shevah. It is from the root savah, to be full or satisfied, have enough of. Hence the meaning of the word “seven” is dominated by this root, for on the seventh day God rested from the work of Creation. It was full and complete, and good and perfect. Nothing could be added to it or taken from it without marring it. Hence the word Shavath, to cease, desist, rest, and Shabbath, Sabbath, or day of rest.”

The Spangled Darter has been named for Obama

This month’s Bulletin of the Alabama Museum of Natural History carries the the exciting news that five new species of the darter fish have been identified and named for U.S. “leaders” (Obama, Gore, Carter, Clinton and Teddy Roosevelt) who have demonstrated their “commitment to the environment.” So, kinda like that Nobel prize, right?

Darters are small, perch-like fish found in freshwater streams in North America. There are loads of different ones, some of which live only in a single stream, making them ideal for tree hugging lefties to wreak havoc in the courts protecting them from “extinction” … never mind that darters are all over the damn place, they can be transplanted, and anyway, who CARES if one particular variation on the theme dies out anyway?

Besides which … how weird is it that they chose to name one of these new darter species after Jimmy Carter. He signed the bill that allowed the Tellico Dam to open, thus wiping out the then-endangered Snail Darter’s habitat. Of course, five years later, the Snail Darters that had been transplanted to some other stream had managed to propagate enough progeny to get moved off the Endangered Species list, making it plain to everyone with two brain cells that the whole dam controversy had, in fact, been the ginormous waste of time and money everyone with four brain cells had known it was in the first place.

But I digress. So, Obama’s gotten his name attached to the Latin for the Spangled Darter of Tennessee. I think there’s a joke in there somewhere.

Spangled Darter Etheostoma obama

Free Republic blogged about it. Here are my favorite snarky comments:

  • The Clinton species is misnamed, it’s not bent.
  • Cold-blooded scaley small-brained bottom feeders?
  • Hirudo obama would sound so much better! Hirudo medicinalis is the common leech.
  • Very offensive to darters, they are nice fish, perhaps the nicest native American fish!
  • I think my cat would like to eat one of those Spangled Darters while I sit back and smile and imagine.
  • Here grandson, let me help you hook that obamafish for you. Yeah I know he a slippery and slimy but the big mouth bass love him as baitfish.
