Alternate title: Obama Kinda-Sorta Resigned From Trinity United Church But Maybe Not.
Trinity United Christian Church is a resentful, fear-mongering, bigoted, race-baiting, anti-White establishment, anti-Semitic, anti-American, highly politicized, Marxist, Afro-centric, Black Liberation Theology Church with strong ties to the Nation of Islam.
To toss a quote back to Obama. . .“ . . .that’s just not how people should have to operate in their church.”
Well, Obama finally left his church, but then again, maybe not. Not really.
How could Obama leave his highly influential friends and not pay a huge political price?

General Motors is closing four truck and SUV plants in the U.S., Canada and Mexico as surging fuel prices hasten a dramatic shift to smaller vehicles.
CEO Rick Wagoner said Tuesday before the automaker’s annual meeting in Delaware the plants to be closed are in Oshawa, Ontario; Moraine, Ohio; Janesville, Wis.; and Toluca, Mexico. He also said the iconic Hummer brand may be discontinued.
Wagoner said the GM board has approved production of a new small Chevrolet car at a plant in Lordstown, Ohio, in mid-2010 and the Chevy Volt electric vehicle in Detroit.
Well, I didn’t want a GM truck anyway!
Patrons at Patrick’s Pub and Grill drink their beer in Tennessee, but a walk to the restroom in the same building takes them across the state line to a dry county in Georgia.
But as Georgia eyes a longshot bid to move its state line north to the Tennessee River in pursuit of water for drought-stricken Atlanta, residents fear this Appalachian tourist town and its bars would be left high and dry — literally. If the move went through, local watering holes would be in Fannin County, Ga., which bans alcohol.
Well now, there’s the best reason of all not to move a state border. Pfft! How about because the lines were drawn 200 years ago, and no one thought to make an issue of it back then? Georgia wants the Tennessee River because they didn’t plan for a drought.
Attacks on Christian targets and those identified with Western culture have grown more frequent in Gaza in the past two years, and especially since the Hamas takeover in June 2007, experts say. The targets have included churches, Christian and United Nations schools, the American International School, libraries and Internet cafes.
The most recent incident occurred this past Saturday, May 31, when gunmen attacked the guards at the Al Manara school, stole a vehicle belonging to the Baptist Holy Book Society which operates the school and threatened the society’s director. The Hamas leadership is not acting to stop the attacks and no one has been brought to justice.
You can claim none of these incidents are part of a “religious war”, but you’d be wrong. It is a war of religions, and it’s only going to get worse. (Pssst….no amount of chatting is going to change that.)
On a talk show last fall, a prominent political analyst named Mikhail G. Delyagin had some tart words about Vladimir V. Putin. When the program was later televised, Mr. Delyagin was not.
Not only were his remarks cut — he was also digitally erased from the show, like a disgraced comrade airbrushed from an old Soviet photo. (The technicians may have worked a bit hastily, leaving his disembodied legs in one shot.)
Mr. Delyagin, it turned out, has for some time resided on the so-called stop list, a roster of political opponents and other critics of the government who have been barred from TV news and political talk shows by the Kremlin.
The stop list is, as Mr. Delyagin put it, “an excellent way to stifle dissent.”
Wonder when ‘our’ very own Dhimmicrat Party is going to start doing the same thing?
A woman in the audience had a suggestion for McCain. How about Thompson as his running mate?
“I kind of got the impression that if he were the candidate I wouldn’t have to spend a lot of time in Tennessee,” McCain said, drawing laughter.
When asked about the idea after the town hall was over, Thompson said he won’t be a vice presidential contender.
“That’s not in the cards for me,” he said.
I think a better spot for Fred is in Nashville….as GOVERNOR. Or, how ’bout taking Lamar Alexander out? Tennessee needs a strong conservative, and right now, the closet we seem to have is Corker, and sometimes, I’m not too sure about him.
It wasn’t your typical field trip that Danielle Quinto took her fourth-grade class at Our Community School in North Hills on last week.
Her 25 students – all from lower- to middle-class working families – didn’t go to the Los Angeles Zoo or Travel Town.
Instead, they went to see men whom they said scared them, men they thought were dangerous and stole things.
Quinto took her class of 9-year-old children on a field trip to a city-funded, day-labor work site in North Hollywood near a Home Depot.
“It was a little weird taking the kids on a field trip like this, but it turned out to be a teacher’s dream,” the young, charter school teacher said Monday.
In one hour, she changed misconceptions and eased the fears of 25 children who thought all day laborers were “bad men.”
Were they LEGAL day laborers, or did the teacher fail to point out the difference between legal, and ILLEGAL. If they were illegal, yes, they are “bad men”. They broke the law.
After six months and 61 contests, the Democratic primary season finally draws to a close Tuesday, but the big question is whether this historic and at times bitter battle for the party’s presidential nomination will also come to a close.
Montana and South Dakota hold primaries Tuesday, but there’s much more at stake than just the 31 pledged delegates in those two contests.
Barack Obama is just 42 delegates shy of the 2,118 now needed to clinch the nomination. There are not enough pledged delegates at stake in Montana and South Dakota to put Obama over the top, but a rush of endorsements by the remaining undeclared “superdelegates” could allow him to claim victory when he takes the stage in Minnesota Tuesday evening.
I don’t want it to be “over”. It’s way too much fun watching them rip themselves apart! All the things that they’ve accused the Pubbies of over the last few decades is finally “coming home to roost” in their own front rooms.
Sen. Robert C. Byrd was hospitalized with a fever after showing signs of lethargy and sluggishness at home, his spokesman told FOX News Monday.
Legislative aide Jesse Jacobs said the 90-year-old Byrd, the longest-serving U.S. senator, looked ill after casting an evening vote on a climate change bill.
Jacobs said that paramedics were called to the home of West Virginia Democrat and he was later transported to a hospital where doctors diagnosed him with a fever and will hold him overnight for observation.
Lethargy and sluggishness? How could they tell the difference?
On the first day of operations for the 13 outdoor pools, 13-year-old Cameron Hogg drowned Saturday at Pine Hill Community Center in South Memphis. He was pronounced dead at 2:30 p.m.
In a separate incident, 15-year-old Damavius Bailey was rushed from the Charles Powell Community Center in Westwood, where he was pronounced dead at 3:02 p.m.
Both pools remained closed over the weekend, and the city ordered all city pools closed Monday pending investigations. They expect to reopen them on Monday.
Prayers with the families. I have to ask though, why close all the pools? In case they council hasn’t noticed, it’s bloomin’ HOT.
With voters sour on the status quo, Republican John McCain plans to spend the next five months arguing that he has a history of fighting to reform government and that Democrat Barack Obama talks of change with nothing to show for it.
“I have a record of doing that, not a rhetoric of doing that,” McCain told an audience last week, claiming he long has taken a bipartisan approach to fixing the country’s ills while suggesting that Obama simply offers empty promises of working across party lines.
Obama is a suit with a mouth. That’s it! Nothing more.
