Obama: Man of the World

As you read this editorial, keep in mind it was written in praise of the president of the United States:

Mr. Obama recalled the opening lines of the Arabic call to prayer, reciting them with a first-rate accent. In a remark that seemed delightfully uncalculated (it’ll give Alabama voters heart attacks), Mr. Obama described the call to prayer as “one of the prettiest sounds on Earth at sunset.”

Is this a man who identifies with the way of life, the values, and beliefs of the people he supposedly represents?

And how'd you like that nasty and gratuitous little jab at Christian Dixie ("it'll give Alabama voters heart attacks")? In the liberal mindset, scourging the South is always praiseworthy.

Oh, and one other thing: Ignore Kristof's snarky remark about Alabama voters. Expecting a New York Times writer not to be a mouthy moron is like expecting a Sumo wrestler not to be fat. It's part of his job.

If Obamanutjob wants to call his Muslim/Arabic friends to prayer let him.

Christian Dixie is no longer just in the South. After the WBTS people moved around. Now Christian Dixie is in several places even places that used to be exclusively Union/Yankee. Even a large number of descendants of Union/Yankee soldiers have now decided of their own free will to be wholeheartedly Confederate (as in: "And ye shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free").

I think we need to pray anywhere and anytime we want; but, it would be nice if we all decided to pray at the same time, then give this Muslim Loyalist and his Islamic friends something to listen to that would indeed be "one of the pretiest sounds on Earth at sunset" or any other time, the Rebel Yell.

Let us all take our stand throughout the land and give the Rebel Yell.

You know, for people that hate everything about us, it sure is strange that they fought a big war to keep us close to them. Sure doesn't make much sense to me.

Dutchy sez,
I'll have to take y'all's word for it since I'm not going to set up a userid and password to access the New York Slime! And thanks for sparing me.

Rex: Beautiful. And Right On.

"Deo": I can't resist - I have to take advantage of this one. This is a genuinely "True Story" (and No, it's not from Argosy - remember that one??).

I was "born & raised" in UPSTATE NY. When I was a kid, my best friend's older brother got a Yamaha YM-1 305. But guess what logo he had on his skid-lid? The whole helmet was covered in metal-flake Red - WITH THE STAR-SPANGLED BARS OF THE BATTLE FLAG CRISS-CROSSING IT. He wore it for years.

From age of 30 to 38, I "lived" in Ma-a-a-a-assachusetts. I stayed for some time in a Duplex in the hills around Amherst. One time I was out for a walk, and the roads around where I lived were "windy" & "twisty." I was lookin' down, thinkin' 'bout the famous "Nuthin'" when all-of-a-sudden, around the corner right behind me, comes a big-a_s hi-ground-clearance pick-up roarin' away, "not-at-all impressed" that it had just come around a sharp 90-degree hairpin WAY TOO FAST for that kind of vehicle.

Just as I looked up, it roared past me. And as it did, my vision was filled with the "thing" in the back window: a frame-fitting Confederate Battle Flag! I gave'im a smile and the thumb's up - EVEN THOUGH I WAS STILL A VERY MUCH BRAINWASHED YANKEE back then. I appreciated his guts to "be himself" and "be different."

That's a Yankee trait - let's use it to our advantage! Whether they agree with you or not, they very much appreciate that & those who take a REALLY 'ballsy' stand on or for sumthin.' What you have to worry about is NOT being TOO BALLSY - IT'S NOT BEING BALLSY ENOUGH!! LITERALLY.

And if they DON'T agree with you & what you believe PERSONALLY, the more 'ballsy' you are about it, the more they like YOU.

Enough 'Yankee Lessons' for today ;). Thanks for watching, TV Fans.

You hit the nail on the head, Anonymous. And while we're talking about what'll give someone a heart attack, I would LOVE to see the reactions of the latte' lapping liberals to a Rebel yell on a crisp Alabama morning. To be fair, I kind of like a latte once in a while.
