This is a rare Sunday post because the omnipotent (impotent?) master of all he surveys (in his delusional mind) will grace his subjects with the thrill of his dulcet tones at 8:00 PM this evening and to report on it tomorrow would make as much sense as anything this turd is likely to say.
Obama Preparing Oval Office Address in Response to Islamic State
Obama has only delivered two other televised Oval Office addresses during his presidency. In June 2010, he delivered a speech detailing the national response to the Gulf of Mexico oil spill in response to weeks of negative press coverage of his handling of the situation. In August 2010, he delivered an address to signal the end of U.S. combat operations in Iraq.
Obama will also talk about his “firm conviction” that the Islamic State will be destroyed and how Americans must hold true to their values in order to prevail over terrorism, according to the White House.
ISN’T THAT JUST THE MOST AWE-INSPIRING THING YOU EVER HEARD?
I’M GOING TO GO OUT ON A LIMB AND GUESS HE’S GOING TO PUSH FOR MORE LAWS TO CONFISCATE LEGALLY-OWNED GUNS, MAYBE THROUGH EXECUTIVE FIAT. GOOD LUCK WITH THAT.
What the left will never understand is that many gun owners are veterans and many others feel this is a right secured by previous generations and will sell their liberty at a dear price. I just wonder if Obama or Clinton would send SWAT teams door-to-door to try to confiscate legally-owned firearms. It is unthinkable that they would even consider such action, but then we’re talking about Obama.
I still refuse to believe Trump will be the Republican nominee. It will either be Rubio or Cruz. Trump will run as a third party candidate just to sat his immense ego. He is a publicity whore and an opportunist, but he can play on peoples’ emotions simply because he doesn’t owe anybody anything.
“That Shit Is Not Gonna Happen Anymore”: Crowd Erupts When Trump Says He Will Take On Terror
This week, Dearest replaced an old, dim, buzzing fluorescent light over the sink with a bright, white LED one that is blessedly silent. The up side is obviously that there’s no hum and the light is bright enough at the sink now that I can see clearly. The down side is that I discovered the sink area was not actually clean. Ahem.
I had a little spiritual ah ha moment from the Lord during my Bible time today on this topic. Two of the readings mentioned light … Jesus is the light of the world and God shines His light into the darkness and reveals hidden truths.
My kitchen light revealing subtle splashes and schmutz I hadn’t been able to see before reminded me of St Teresa of Avila’s thing about spiritual growth being like gardening. She said that, first, God goes in with us and starts ripping out the ginormous weeds. When that’s done, He wants us to tackle all the middle sized weeds we couldn’t see before. When those are gone, He wants us to get down and really dig into our consciences to get at those small and hidden things that lurk like bits of crab grass root.
I’ve noticed that the more a person works at being truly holy, the more humble they seem to become. I think I get now why that is. 🙂
“If you’re ‘politically correct’ nowadays, it doesn’t mean you’re polite or considerate or kind, it means you’re delusional, cowed and intellectually dishonest.”
“Here’s the reality: There’s really no reason to be suspicious of groups of white teenage girls or middle aged white men or elderly Chinese women, because they aren’t the ones carrying out terrorist attacks. Now, sure, if you know a kooky, disheveled, white guy who lives by himself in the woods, abuses animals, hides in the bushes to spy on women, and babbles about his conspiracy theories, then you ought to be suspicious of him, too. Disturbed, lone white guys kill people, but they don’t generally come together in groups to plot out an elaborate siege on a local office complex. Muslims do that. That’s almost exclusively a Muslim thing.
“Likewise, if you’re walking down the street alone at night and you see a young black guy coming toward you, it’s rational to be more wary than you’d be if he was a young white lady (although, these days, I guess he could be both). Blacks are only 13 percent of the population but they commit a vastly disproportionate number of homicides and other violent crimes. That’s the reality. You can diagnose the statistics however you want and come up with any number of reasons to explain them, but the facts are the facts. You’re more likely to be killed or mugged in the street by a black person than by any other kind of person.”
