I saw this picture on Drudge and had to put it up for a caption contest. I do not know who owns it so until someone official asks me to take it down, we can use it for the contest.
First the rules. There are no prizes in this contest. Just have fun.
Write the caption that you think should go with this picture. I will put up a few to start us off. You can put yours in the comments.
“Now we know why Michelle and the family were not with him on his birthday.”
“I want you so badly right now Barry…”
“Now this is the Chicago way.”
“Dude, did you just smoke a Newport? That so ruins the mood for me.”
“Oh Barry, your wrist is so limp it turns me on.”
“The gay judge in California said it is OK so how would you like to see my prop 8?”
UPDATE: The best for last, wait for it…
“Once you go Barack you’ll never go back…”
OK, the rest is up to you so have fun…

Mayor Daley is not happy with the decision by the Supreme Court that says the Second Amendment applies to the states. He is an anti gun politician and he wants guns banned. He has no concern for the Constitution or for freedom. He only cares about power and how to get rich through Chicago corruption.
The people of Chicago see things a bit differently. They are happy with the decision. Some indicate that they have weapons to protect themselves even though the weapons are illegal (by virtue of the gun ban). People are willing to break the law to ensure their safety.
Daley cares not one bit and he vowed to enact a new law that will make it extremely difficult to own a gun. These tactics usually involve undue barriers that prevent people, particularly the poor, from getting weapons. The very same tactics that liberals used after slavery to terrorize the freemen.
Why should Daley care? He has armed guards to protect him.
At least the people get it. As one person puts it:
Another neighbor, 50-year-old Charlene Figgins, thinks Chicago Mayor Richard Daley is living in a different Chicago than she is and that he doesn’t understand the citizens’ need for protection.
She says it can take 30 minutes for police to respond to calls for help in her neighborhood. She says the mayor doesn’t have that problem. Chicago Tribune
Or as the bumper sticker says, when seconds count the police are minutes away.

Voting linked to taxes…
Walter Williams has made a bold statement but it is something I have said for some time. He does a great job of explaining it:
I’m not proposing that we take voting rights away from those who do not pay taxes. What I’m suggesting is that every American gets one vote in every federal election, plus another vote for each $20,000 he pays in federal taxes. With such a system, there’d be a modicum of linkage between one’s financial stake in our country and his decision-making right. Of course, unequal voting power could be reduced by legislating lower taxes.
This is not a far-out idea. The founders worried about it. James Madison’s concern about class warfare between the rich and the poor led him to favor the House of Representatives being elected by the people at large and the Senate elected by property owners. He said, “It is nevertheless certain, that there are various ways in which the rich may oppress the poor; in which property may oppress liberty; and that the world is filled with examples. It is necessary that the poor should have a defense against the danger. On the other hand, the danger to the holders of property cannot be disguised, if they be undefended against a majority without property.” Jewish World Review
Makes perfectly good sense. If you have more skin in the game (or as Biden would put it, if you are more patriotic) then you should have more of a say in how things are run. It would force politicians to new ways of thinking. One way might be to lower taxes so we all only have one vote…
Obama and state run media incite black man to commit violence
A white supremacist was beaten to death by a black guy. How ironic is that? According to the article, the white guy kept to himself in his neighborhood and had protested different things but never amounted to much in the supremacist movement and the black guy was a criminal who served time in jail for assaulting a police officer.
The police found the supremacist, Richard Barrett, after he was stabbed and beaten to death and then set on fire. Police arrested a neighbor, Vincent McGee, (who had done work for Barrett) and charged him with the murder. Here is the interesting part:
[Sheriff Ron] Pennington did not disclose a motive but said neighbour (sic) Vincent McGee, 22, was charged with murder on Thursday and deputies charged three other people in the case on Friday. Daily Mail UK
I can tell you the motive, McGee is a racist and he was incited by the rhetoric of Barack Obama (if they bring a knife, you bring a gun) and the state run media. For some time now Obama and his state run media have told us that anyone who opposes them is a racist and that they are dangerous and could commit violent acts. After hearing all this rhetoric from Obama and the state run media, McGee decided that he needed to get the racist before the racist got him. This is a direct result of Obama and the state run media using inflammatory language and causing the fringe elements to go berserk.
And since it was a black guy killing a white guy it had to be racism. We all know that if this white supremacist had killed the black guy Clinton, Obama and the state run media would be talking about Beck, Limbaugh, and Palin inciting him to violence and how this is an act of racism.
Well, the truth must be the same when the roles are reversed.
What to do about violence?
Two lawmakers in Illinois want the governor to activate the National Guard and have them perform police duties because of all the crime and gun violence in Chicago. Officials are even more concerned that since warm weather is upon us the number of murders will increase. Seems that Chicago has more death and violence than an actual war zone and the police are unable to do anything about the violence.
It must be an election year because these bozos are trying to show their concern for the citizens. They are at wit’s end with the problem they created and now they want to activate a military force to handle it. Not a wise idea. Let the police handle it, let the politicians handle it but keep the military out. I would love to see the military go in to neighborhoods and wipe out gangs but that is not their job and they will be set up for failure. The minute they kill some thug in a shootout the same politicians who put them there will scream about what they did and then yell torture and Abu Ghraib and then blame it all on George Bush.
Besides, how credible is this information concerning violence? Chicago has one of the most stringent gun laws in the country so no one is using guns to kill people. They can’t be because they cannot buy guns, they cannot carry guns, and they have a hard time keeping guns in the home. The only people who can carry guns are politicians who tell the rest of us that they are not necessary and others who have greased the correct political palms. No one is buying guns elsewhere and bringing them in because there are laws against that as well. Laws always work because criminals have a lot of respect for the law and law enforcement. They would never consider buying guns illegally or carrying them illegally or importing them illegally because there are laws against that and liberals tell us that gun laws work.
Nope, Chicago has no gun crime and no murders by gun because guns are practically banned there. This must be some election year stunt to get the National Guard on all the streets to make people feel safer and have them believe that their government is there for them.
I wonder what would happen in Chicago if the state of Illinois allowed law abiding citizens to carry concealed firearms. They should probably give that a try since the way they are doing it seems not to be working. Seems to me it would be a lot cheaper than calling out the Guard.
Crime would go down fast.
One other thing they might consider and that is letting gangs have shootouts with each other. Put them all in an abandoned part of town and let them have gun battles with each other. If they are hell bent on killing each other then why stop it? We do not need them and putting them in jail does not seem to curb gang violence so just let them kill each other off.
Keep the people of Mississippi in your prayers
A number of people were killed and many more impacted by a tornado that touched down in the Yazoo County area. Keep these folks in your prayers.

Crime in Chicago will be down on Christmas Eve because the government will be shut down with the exception of essential services.
The City of Chicago will be shutting down early for the Christmas holiday, as part of Mayor Daley’s plan to save the cash-strapped city money.
City Hall, public libraries, health clinics and most other city offices will be closed on Christmas Eve as those city workers are being forced to take the day off without pay. CBS 2 Chicago
Since most of the crime in Chicago is committed by the government then it stands to reason that there will be less crime.
Of course, the Chicago thugs in DC will still be committing crimes against humanity.

The Democrats will do whatever it takes to get what they want. Nancy Pelosi said that they will do whatever they have to in order to get health care reform passed. The Senate is locked in a battle over their, as yet unwritten (but debated in secret) bill and each new change causes a gained vote at the loss of another. So what do the Democrats do in order to get what they want?
Well, when Lieberman was not on board they went after his wife. A blogger/Hollywood type by the name of Jane Hamsher started the attack on Lieberman’s wife Hadassah who is the global ambassador for the Susan G Komen for the Cure breast cancer group. Hamsher is trying to get her fellow Hollywood types to put pressure on the organization to get rid of Mrs. Lieberman.
This is Chicago politics at its best (though Hamsher probably learned her thuggery from SEIU). To be fair it is not the Democrats in Congress doing this but the Democrats in the field. To giver further credit, The Daily Kos thought it was over the top and if they think so, it must be because they are really out there.
Hamsher is a liberal activist who thinks it is perfectly OK to go after the family of politicians with whom she disagrees. This is not unusual for the left. Look at how they went after Palin’s family while leaving Obama’s alone. Imagine how Hamsher would react if people tried to inflict some personal (not physical) harm on Obama’s kids because of his actions. I imagine she would be pretty upset, and rightly so. But she seems to think it is OK to attack Mrs. Lieberman because of her husband’s political acts. The Komen for the Cure group does a lot of great work in the area of breast cancer and it raises a lot of money. Hadassah Lieberman is a cancer survivor as is Hamsher who had breast cancer. One would think that this yenta could leave the politics out of such a worthy pursuit.
The attacks on Hadassah Lieberman are wrong, period! I understand that Komen for the Cure has no intention of releasing her and this is commendable. I will continue to donate to this worthy organization but will have to reconsider if they allow politics to take over and fire Mrs. Lieberman.
There is more to the thuggery. Democrats are apparently so eager to get the health care bill passed in the Senate that Ben Nelson might have been threatened. The Weekly Standard is reporting that Nelson was told if he did not get on board that Offutt Air Force Base would be put on the BRAC (Base Realignment and Closure) list:
According to a Senate aide, the White House is now threatening to put Nebraska’s Offutt Air Force Base on the BRAC list if Nelson doesn’t fall into line.
There are varying stories on this and Nelson has denied it (what else could he do to spare his party) and there was initial word that Rahm Emanuel was behind the threat. This would not come as a surprise given the way twinkle toes Emanuel has played politics in the past. He is a hard nosed Chicago thug and threats are a way of life to him.
If this turns out to be true then the Obama administration has placed the passage of an agenda item above the security of the US. It shows that the administration is willing to play politics with our security.
Whoever made the threat though, is unfamiliar with how BRAC works. It is a long drawn out process that takes years. The reality is that by the time this would even be considered many Democrats will be out of a job and Obama might be on a speaking tour discussing why he was a one term leader.
These thugs go after family members and make threats to get what they want. Of course they try bribery first, that is what got Mary Landrieu on board. She sold herself to the highest bidder so it was not necessary to leave a horse’s head in her bed.
But there are plenty of those heads being distributed as Democrats look for a way to jam this through at all costs.
As for Hamsher, Glenn Beck revealed tonight that she dated Andy Stern of SEIU for about two years. Since we know how thuggish SEIU is, some of it must have rubbed off on Hamsher. She went from being a liberal to being a violent activist.
She is so insignificant I can’t think of anything she has done in Hollywood but if I know she is involved in something I will be sure to avoid it.
Maybe she can lose her job…
Or maybe she will die of the disease Mrs. Lieberman is working hard to help eradicate…
I don’t wish her death but that would be rather ironic.
