Sticky Post Time
This is a Sticky Post, meaning it stays on top for a while (so scroll on down for the newest and latest updates...well, when I can get around to it, that is).
What to do for Christmas?
Well, how about doing something for the Men and Women in the Military?
How about making a donation to Operation Uplink which provides calling cards to our Soldiers so that they can phone home to their loved ones?
AnySolider.com has a great site of what you can to donate to our Service Men and Women.
Consider making a donation to the USO. Click under the heading "How To Help."
Disabled American Veterans is another worthy cause.
And something that costs absolutely nothing but a few moments of your time, but will mean so very much: Operation Dear Abby, Send a Message to Our Troops.
If you have a special organization that you would like mentioned, please add it as a comment.

Who Will Replace NPR's Retiring
Longtime National Socialist Radio's Carl Kasell is retiring. His final newscast will be December 30.
Considering NPR's wide and diverse (read "non-white") on-air talent, who will NPR select to replace Carl Kasell? Can you guess who it will be?
a) Kuntlatch al-Zwaharee-Wilson,
b) Joe Robinson,
c) Mary Willis,
d) Ja'tyala Pho'nique,
e) Reuben Gonzalez
Ooooooh....you thought it would be easy until you got to the Wild Card name of Reuben Gonzalez, didn't you? You thought you had it nailed down and picked Kuntlatch, but perhaps she was a red herring? Brew a second pot of coffee, you still have some head-scratching to do. Who will replace Carl Kasell?

Obama's Illegal Occupation of Afghanistan.
Where's ReidTard uttering his famous words, "we've lost," when we need him? We know we've lost in a war when the U.S. commits more Troops to the cause. This is known as Reid's Law: a Military surge of personnel means "we've lost." We sure don't hear Harry bad-mouthing the Military policies of Pbama the same as he did of W. Bush, do we?
One has to wonder if Pbama really wants to win the war in Afghanistan, since his Admin is tying the hands of U.S. Soldiers behind their backs in terms of Rules of Engagement. NPR:
... we were in this combat outpost down in southern Afghanistan, in the Helmand River Valley, and we were inside this center, a command center, watching a video screen. They were watching live while these guys were digging a hole for a roadside bomb. And there were other indicators, too, besides digging the hole. There was a guy swimming across a canal with this wire, and the wires are used to detonate the bomb.
Unidentified Man #1: I have two guys on the west side of the cow buoys(ph) running wires across the canal to the west side, where a (unintelligible) an IED the other day. So, they're watching them right now.
BOWMAN: There were a couple of guys keeping watch and stopping traffic. And the Marines were intercepting a radio call from these suspected insurgents while they were doing these other activities.
MONTAGNE: And on the radio, they were saying we're planting a bomb?
BOWMAN: And on the radio they were talking about planting a bomb.
MONTAGNE: So from the Marines perspective, the Afghans really did appear to be insurgents. So what did they do?
BOWMAN: Well, they felt comfortable. They had all the indicators that these guys were insurgents planting a bomb. So they thought about using a machine gun to shoot these guys. There was another combat outpost not too far away. The problem was there was a compound of houses between where the Marines were with their machine gun and the guys planting the bomb.
So then they decided to bring in the helicopters and use the machines guns and the helicopters to shoot these guys. As the helicopters came in, these guys look up in the air and start walking away. One of the guys was carrying a yellow jug - and that's become the icon of the roadside bomb. They mix fertilizer and diesel fuel in this, and that becomes a part of the bomb. And then we saw one of these guys throw this jug into a haystack.
Unidentified Man #2: And hiding the jug into the hay pile right now, and then are walking near the open field, so just wait until�
BOWMAN: And they were gone. It was all over. They could no longer shoot at them.
MONTAGNE: So why didn't they shoot at them?
BOWMAN: Well, they thought that they were still too close to this compound of houses to allow these helicopters to use their machine guns to shoot, so they decided against it.
MONTAGNE: So, in being very, very careful about shooting at what they absolutely believed to be insurgents, they ended up, in effect, losing these guys. How did that make them feel?
BOWMAN: Well, they weren't happy at all. And some of them stormed out of this command center. And we talked with one of them afterwards. This is Lieutenant James Wendy(ph).
Lieutenant JAMES WENDY (U.S. Marines): There's no way that anyone other than the enemy would've been injured.
BOWMAN: So, why weren't you allowed to shoot?
Lt. WENDY: Honestly, I don't know. I'd like to say I wish we could play by the big boy rules, you know, but, you know, it's just the way it is. And if I had known how frustrating it'd be and was able to better prepare myself for that mentally, I think that maybe I would've been better off.
MONTAGNE: What about the military leaders? Is it reaching the top? Are they hearing these complaints about these rules of engagement that are so restrictive?
BOWMAN: You know, they are hearing these complaints. And I had a few minutes this week with their overall commander, General McChrystal, and I told him the same story, Renee, I told you. And I asked him about the rules of engagement. Here's what he had to say:
General STANLEY MCCHRYSTAL (U.S. Commander, Afghanistan): I've been at this a long time now, since 9/11, and there were a tremendous number of times when I've seen activities done, which, on the surface of what was seen, looks exactly one way, looks completely convincing. And then in the aftermath, what you saw was incomplete. In fact, what we find is civilian casualties who are unarmed civilians.
I think when we err on the side of maturity and caution, there is a cost. And I know that we're asking an extraordinary amount from them to operate with such restraint and self-discipline, but I think it's how we win the war.
No one really knows what Pbama wants to do in Afghanistan. He's set no benchmarks, other than a withdraw date that is about as permanent as Nanny Pelosi's botox. From the hardly Right of Center Slate:
Since his inauguration, Barack Obama has tripled the number of troops fighting in Afghanistan. After announcing the latest surge of 30,000 new soldiers in a speech at West Point, it is clear that he is a president actively prosecuting a war, not merely tending to one that was left to him.
According to his speech, Obama is escalating while retreating, adding more troops while also setting a date for their departure. Obama said he was putting pressure on the Afghan government, but he didn't suggest how. Some of the blurring was by design. He smudged the border between Afghanistan and Pakistan, explaining that while he was sending troops to Afghanistan, the struggle was now more regional than it was when the war started eight years ago.
The president's critics will complain about the 18-month deadline Obama set for starting the troop withdrawal. The president says he set a deadline to focus the minds of our partners in Afghanistan, but he also said the departure decision would be based on the recommendations of his field commanders. This is a version of the debate we had during the presidential campaign, when Obama set a 16-month deadline for withdrawal from Iraq. His advisers will no doubt admit—as they did during the campaign—that if military advisers say a withdrawal from Afghanistan in 18 months is inadvisable, then the troops won't leave. His Republican critics will also presumably agree, as John McCain did during the campaign, that if the commanders say it's OK to start leaving in 18 months, then that's just fine with them.
Obama insisted that his deadline-that-isn't-a-deadline would put pressure on the Afghan government. "The absence of a time frame for transition would deny us any sense of urgency in working with the Afghan government. It must be clear that Afghans will have to take responsibility for their security and that America has no interest in fighting an endless war in Afghanistan."
But Obama said nothing in the speech that put actual pressure on the government.
Obama's tone was methodical and emotionless. He often sounded like a reluctant warrior. He told the West Point students about signing condolence letters and greeting coffins arriving at Dover. "As your commander in chief, I owe you a mission that is clearly defined, and worthy of your service," said Obama. There were repeated references in the speech to the honor of their service.
The president said twice that he didn't take his decision "lightly." This seemed like an obvious shot at Dick Cheney and other critics who had complained that he had taken too long to make his final decision. (On the day of the speech, the former vice president claimed that Obama had shown "weakness.") Obama also spent considerable time reminding his audience about the troubled history of the Afghan war since the attacks of 9/11, implying that if Bush and Cheney had taken a little more time during the first seven years of the war, there would be no need for him to be giving the speech—or sending more troops into danger.
Why...I remember a time where The Left jumped all over W. Bush whenever he mentioned the words, "nine-eleven." But Barry received The Coveted Free Mass from his Kool-Aid injecting Cult Followers.
Has Dear Leader His Kenyan Excellency "clearly defined" his Afghanistan surge?
Is Barry a Warmonger? Is he a pansy Pacifist? Is he a Wussy-Widdle Kenyan whose loyalty to the United States is virtually nonexistent? Is he a Marxist, set out to destroy America at the string-pulling expense of his puppet masters? Why, yes, he is. He's all these things. And more. He's what you call, a versatile.

White House Party Crashers Creates Competency Quagmire for Obama
The Secret Service has formally apologized for allowing two party crashers into the White House state dinner on Tuesday night. The Secret Service continues to investigate how the husband and wife — who are looking for a role in a reality TV show — got past security and actually met the president. Melissa Blocks talks with Roxanne Roberts of The Washington Post.
The Secret Service issued an apology today for allowing two uninvited guests to crash the state dinner at the White House on Tuesday. Director Mark Sullivan said the Secret Service is deeply concerned and embarrassed and that established protocols were not followed at an initial checkpoint. That failing, he said, is ours.
I don't understand all the feigned outrage from The Insane Liberal Clown Posse (ILCP) and the Pbama Cultists over this. It was, after all, Michelle Pickles The Dangerous Washerwoman Obama who said - and deemed - the White House as belonging to America and belonging to the American people.
So...a couple of Americans decide to take up Barry and Pickles on their offer and stop by for a state dinner. What's the big deal?
Oh - oh - oh...the big deal is the egg on the face of the whole Pbama Administration. The inexperience, the hubris, the narcissism, the deer-in-the-headlights management style and the lack of qualifications of The Kenyan. He's a fraudulent impostor who is in so far deep over his head he doesn't know what end is up.
Don Long at The Shaved Ape says the party crashing is yet another example of The Community Organizer In Chief's incompetence and inexperience. I fully agree.
I guess since The Pbamas are members of the uber-Liberal Elite they don't so much connect to the Great Unwashed. Not that they ever did.
The White House belongs to all Americans. It belongs to the people. Sure, Pickles, sure. Tell us more lies.

Bank Failures Skyrocket Under The Failed Obama Administration; FDIC Broke
We're up to 124 bank failures in the ten short months The Kenyan has been in office. Zacks:
U.S. regulators on Friday [November 20] closed down Commerce Bank of Southwest Florida. Though there are some early signs of economic recovery, bank failures go on growing with rising loan defaults. This takes the total number of bank failures to 124, compared to 25 in 2008 and 3 in 2007.
Yep...the bank failures under W. Bush, well...the numbers were negligible. But under Pbama the bank closure numbers are skyrocketing. But you won't hear a peep out of his Cultists because they are too busy eating their Obama Shit Sandwiches saying, "yum yum, give us more Prednint Obama, give us more! We love your shit sandwiches. These are the most tasty sandwich evah !"
And the FDIC is broke. NY Slimes:
The government-administered insurance fund that protects depositors fell into the red for the first time since the fallout from the savings-and-loan crisis of the early 1990s as the pace of bank failures accelerated.
The fund had a negative balance of $8.2 billion at the end of the third quarter, federal regulators said Tuesday.
So far, the F.D.I.C. has seized and sold 124 banks in 2009, and analysts expect hundreds more to collapse in the months ahead.
In eleven short months under the Pbama Regime, there are 7.5 million jobs lost or aborted under Pbama. This is exactly what Pbama wants. He is doing the will of his puppet master(s), most likely - in my opinion -
Oh those Kool-Aid-injecting Pbama Cultists must be proud of their election-stealing Kenyan. He is doing a Heckuva Job. Just a Heckuva job!

Pro-Baby Killer Holds Knife To Throat of Pro-Lifer
A Superior, Wis., woman was arraigned in St. Louis County District Court on Wednesday after being accused of holding a knife to an anti-abortion demonstrator’s neck outside of Duluth’s Building for Women on Tuesday morning.
Mechelle Tallulah Hall, 25, is charged with second-degree assault.
Hall’s alleged motivation is unclear. According to the criminal complaint, at one point, she held the knife in a threatening manner and said "The reason I’m doing this is because I am certified crazy." She’s accused of holding the knife to the throat of a 21-year-old woman who was handing out pamphlets outside the Building for Women.

God Bless our Men and Women - and their families - who have served, and who currently serve, in the Military. And the Men and Women - and their families - of our Allies across the world who, along with us, defend the oppressed, promote freedom for all people and who are willing to put their lives on the line so that others may live free.
Obama Spends Two Whole Hours
on The Afghanistan War!
You really have to hand it to Dear Leader His Excellency Barack Hussein Obama, Junior. He spent two whole hours being briefed on the Afghanistan war! NY Slimes:
President Obama said Tuesday that he was determined to “finish the job” in Afghanistan, and his aides signaled to allies that he would send as many as 25,000 to 30,000 additional American troops there even as they cautioned that the final number remained in flux.
Mr. Obama went around the table in the White House Situation Room asking his senior advisers for summations of their individual assessments and to voice any concerns they still had, said an administration official who was briefed on the two-hour meeting.
Of course, now we can all officially agree that he is a Warmonger, since his Afghanistan plan portends increasing the Troop levels by some 30,000.
Afghanistan was going rather well under the Bush Admin, but along comes The Kenyan and poof, it goes straight to hell.
Afghanistan, under Obama, the MOST DEADLIEST YEAR EVER and only 35 percent approval rating of his handling of the war. AFP:
With 2009 by far the deadliest year for foreign troops in Afghanistan, critics of reinforcing the 68,000-strong US contingent portray the mission as unnecessary and unwinnable, warning it has begun to resemble Vietnam.
A USA TODAY/Gallup poll released Wednesday showed rising pessimism among the US public, with only 35 percent approving of Obama's handling of the conflict, down from 56 percent four months ago.
America was divided on the president's expected decision to dispatch some 34,000 more US troops. Half of those surveyed backed the plans, while 39 percent said it was time to begin withdrawing forces.
Where is the "War is Always Wrong, Always," crowd? They are unamazingly silient, aren't they?
Oh those Kool-Aid Injecting Pbama Cultists...never underestimate their deepest depths of hypocrisy and denial. Never.
This is as good as time as any to remind everyone that Obama HAS NO MILITARY EXPERIENCE AT ALL! NONE! ZERO! ZIP! And either does Herr Biden who received FIVE DEFERMENTS FOR his alleged ASTHMA.

Geithner Under Fire and Underwater;
WaPo Busy Fellating Obama Admin
[White House senior advisers] said Friday they were not alarmed by Geithner's rough treatment at the hands of Republican lawmakers on the Joint Economic Committee, which even included a call for him to resign.
Oh...wait...it's the WaPoo! Did I say neutral and objective? I must have one-too-may hits of The Chronic.
Awwwww. Po' Widdle Timmy Tim Tim The Tax Cheater. He was asked some tough questions, gosh darn it, about the Obama Admin and the Treasury Department's profligate spending of billions and trillions of taxpayer money! How dare anyone hold responsible, let alone accountable, the likes of Timmy Tim Tim The Tax Cheater and his boss Dear Leader His Excellency Barack Hussein Obama, Junior.
There were plenty of Democrats who grilled Timmy Tim Tim The Tax Cheater just as harshly and roughly as did the Republican lawmakers. Anyone who followed Geithner's Grilling knows many Dem lawmakers were not impressed by Geither's performance and showed nothing but incredulity and "even" rough treatment towards Geithner's ignorance, arrogance and inexperience. He's in way over his head. If he were a human, physical representation of a mortgage, he'd be underwater.
Brwady Dennith didn't mention this in his story because - well, my guess is - the WaPoo is far too busy fellating Hussein Obama, Junior and his Crooked Communist Cronies.
Eleven paragraphs into the story, Brwady finally gets around to noting that Geithner used taxpayer bailout money to pay AIG's creditors at full face value! Had this happened under any Republican Admin, this fact would have been placed near the beginning of the story and would have likely been the screaming headline, something like: "Bush Treas Sec Bails Out Wall Street Cronies at Full Value!"
And it isn't until the twelfth paragraph that Brwady mentions that one House Democrat said "no" when asked during a television interview whether Geithner should keep his job.
Geither is a Wall Street Good Old Boy. He'd be vilified, demonized and forced to resign if he were a part of any Republican Administration. But he has the approval of The Kenyan behind him along with the Liberal press, including the WaPoo, which is far too busy fellating the Pbama Admin and swallowing like the good little guzzlers that they are.
I wonder if the WaPoo keeps a stomach pump on its premises for their reporters, just in case they swallow too much...well, you know.

Druggy Patrick Kennedy Barred From Communion
Awwwwww. Druggy Patrick Kennedy is barred from receiving Communion. Providence Journal:
Providence Bishop Thomas J. Tobin has forbidden Rep. Patrick J. Kennedy to receive the Roman Catholic sacrament of Holy Communion because of his advocacy of abortion rights, the Rhode Island Democrat said Friday.
“The bishop instructed me not to take Communion and said that he has instructed the diocesan priests not to give me Communion,” Kennedy said in a telephone interview.
Kennedy said the bishop had explained the penalty by telling him “that I am not a good practicing Catholic because of the positions that I’ve taken as a public official,” particularly on abortion. He declined to say when or how Bishop Tobin told him not to take the sacrament. And he declined to say whether he has obeyed the bishop’s injunction.
Isn't it time Druggy Patrick Kennedy check into rehab again? He's only made two or three or four trips - that we know about - to try and kick the booze, the pills and who knows what other substances this pig abuses. Yes, that's right, I called him a pig. All Kennedy males are pigs. Fcuking pigs. They're a bunch of substance abusing, raging alcoholic, serial philandering, rapist, misogynistic pigs.
Speaking of the Kennedy family, Druggy Pat's dad Fat Ted Tumor Head Kennedy is still dead and permanently residing in Hell. And this is a wonderful, glorious thing that I have not yet fully finished rejoicing or celebrating. It's a tragedy Fat Ted lived as long as he did, considering his heinous career crime.

Obama Economic Policies Hinder Recovery
Pbamanomics - the economic policies of Dear Leader His Excellency Barack Hussein Pbama Junior - Marxists policies created and intended to purposefully ruin the U.S. Economy - are preventing the rebound of the U.S. Economy. al-Reuters:
...with banks reluctant to lend and consumers afraid of borrowing, chances of a strong and quick economic recovery are slim, bankers and investors said at the Reuters Global Finance Summit this week.
"It will take at least a couple of years to come out of this recession," said Denis Salamone, chief operating officer of Hudson City Bancorp (HCBK.O), the biggest U.S. thrift.
CONSUMERS PULLING BACK
The U.S. economy grew at an annual rate of 3.5 percent in the third quarter, its first growth in more than a year. But the main impetus was government subsidies on cars and housing.
"We have to be cautious here because unemployment is still a big uncertainty, is forecast to continue to rise, and so we have to take a cautious outlook, even though things are notably better than they were a year ago," American Express Co (AXP.N) Chief Financial Officer Dan Henry said.
Unemployment rose to a 26-year high of 10.2 percent in October and is expected to be a drag on the economy for some time.
"Companies are not yet confident that we will be out of this. And some are concerned about a second dip coming out of this recession and, therefore, they are not hiring," Salamone said.
"People's consumption attitude is going to be different over a period of time, and I think that will lead them to not be the whole engine of the world economy," said Takeo Sumino, chief operating officer of Nomura Holding America, a unit of Japanese brokerage Nomura Holdings
Mortgage delinquency rates and the percentage of loans in foreclosure jumped to record highs in the third quarter, according to the Mortgage Bankers Association. It forecast the trend will continue into 2010.
Credit card losses are seen peaking next year, and commercial real estate losses will likely become a big headache for more lenders.
"If you think chargeoffs are bad now, wait until this unemployment rate sticks at 10 percent for over a 12-month time period," he said. "Everybody tries to live their lifestyle, and people only begin to change their lifestyle when they lose their job. Then reality sets in."

Obama Calls Great Wall, "Magical."
President Barack Obama absorbed history's expanse Wednesday from atop the Great Wall of China, a manmade wonder of such enormity that Mr. Obama found himself putting daily life in perspective.
"It's magical," Mr. Obama said, walking down a ramp alone, his hands in his pockets. "It reminds you of the sweep of history and our time here on earth is not that long. We better make the best of it."
Yeah. China has such fair and humane Human Rights Policies. One might call them Magical. I'm glad The Kenyan appreciates and endorses it.

Al Gore Claims Interior of Earth's Temperature, "Several million degrees."
Al Gore was on The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien recently and was attempting to explain the utility of geothermal energy, which taps the Earth's heat to generate energy. In so doing, former Vice President Gore proved to be an ignoramus.
People think about geothermal energy — when they think about it at all — in terms of the hot water bubbling up in some places, but two kilometers or so down in most places 'cause the interior of the earth is extremely hot, several million degrees aces there are these incredibly hot rocks, , and the crust of the earth is hot ..."
The problem is that Al Gore got the temperature of the interior of the Earth wrong by several orders of magnitude. The actual temperature of the Earth's interior is upwards to six thousand degrees Celsius. "Several million degrees" would describe the temperature of the interior of the Sun.
In other words, if Al Gore were right, the Earth would not be a planet but a star.
This is a man who, in a specific area of science, has no formal training and education in the area of which he speaks, yet millions of Kool-Aid injecting EnviroTards and Cultists bow to him like the Global Warming Guru that he poses and postures as.
Gore doesn't know Michael Jordan from Michael Jackson. And he's asking us to believe him on so-called Global Warming? I have ocean front property for sale for all you Gore Global Warming believers. Send me your money. I will reserve, for you in your name, 150 yards of prime, sandy, beach front property on Pluto. Plenty of land to build waterfront property. Low down payments and affordable monthly payment. Yeah...send me your money. You're gullible. Beyond gullible.
This must be true because Al Gore, Junior said so.

Mary Landrieu Is For Sale
Chubby LiberNazi U.S. Marxist Senator Mary Landrieu of Louisiana is for sale. Her price for voting to support the Rationed and Socialized healthcare program known as ObamaCare is one-million dollars...and then some. APee:
Section 2006 takes up only a few dozen lines in a sweeping health care bill that runs to 2,074 pages and mentions neither Sen. Mary Landrieu nor her state of Louisiana. But the section's purpose is indisputable: to deliver $100 million or more in federal funds to the state. And in the process clear the way for one of three moderate Democratic fence-sitters — Ben Nelson of Nebraska and Blanche Lincoln of Arkansas are the others — to help propel the legislation past its initial hurdle in a crucial Saturday vote.
"You're being mean, David."

Fake President, Fake Jobs, Real Costs
The Obama administration, under fire for inflating job growth from the $787 billion stimulus plan, slashed over 60,000 jobs from its most recent report on the program because the reporting outlets had submitted "unrealistic data," according to a document obtained by ABC News.
...the omitted data from the 12 outlets reflected 60,803 jobs saved or created from over $20 million in stimulus funds. If the administration had included the data in its report last month, the total job growth from the stimulus would have exceeded 700,000, rather than the 640,000 ultimately reported.
"The more we learn about the administration's 'jobs created or saved' methodology, the more questions we have regarding its accuracy and validity," Rep. Darrell Issa told ABC News Sunday night. "Now we learn that OMB is playing an active role in trying to filter information. Given this hands-on role that the administration is playing, it would be appropriate to have OMB represented at Thursday's hearing."
Since the latest stimulus report, there have been numerous media reports that the jobs numbers were inflated.
The Associated Press said the report "significantly overstates the number of jobs spared with money from programs serving families and children, mostly the Head Start preschool program."
The Denver Post also cited overstated federal figures with the Colorado Head Start program, noting that the government reported 269 jobs saved or created by the program, but only three were actually saved or created.
The Chicago Tribune noted that the administration said $4.7 million in stimulus money for schools in north Chicago had saved the jobs of 473 teachers, but the school district only employed 290 teachers. The statistics – claiming that stimulus money had helped save or create 14,330 school jobs in Illinois – were "riddled with anomalies that raise questions about their validity."
The Boston Globe also reported that Massachusetts recipients of stimulus funds claimed that 12,000 jobs had been saved or created, "that number has been inflated by miscounts, erroneous figures, or claiming jobs for work not yet started."
Lies. Nothing but Lies every time The Kenyan and his Admin speaks or releases information. Lies. All lies.
Where is the outrage from the Pbama Cultists who claimed they would hold their Messyiah responsible, unlike - they alleged - those of us who, at times, supported George W. Bush? Why so silent, Cultists? Why so deathly afraid to hold your failure of a Messyiah responsible and accountable for his actions and his policies? Why so afraid to speak up? Too busy intravenously injecting that Kool-Aid?
Just how deep is the Cultists' level of denial? How high is up?

Joe Biden+Cars=Accidents and Deaths
Biden escort involved in auto wreck. ABQ News:
A Bernalillo County Sheriff's deputy escorting Vice President Joe Biden's motorcade was hit this afternoon at Gibson and Carlisle.
Police say a woman drove around two police units blocking the intersection and hit a car driven by a sergeant with BCSO.
No injuries or arrests have been reported, but the sergeant has been taken to Presbyterian Hospital for evaluation.
A sheriff's spokeswoman would not say whether the vice president had already gone through the area at the time of the accident.
Two armored U.S. Secret Service vehicles, including a limousine sometimes used by Vice President Biden, struck and killed a man hours before dawn Wednesday as he was crossing rain-slicked Suitland Parkway near the District-Maryland border, authorities said.
The pedestrian, whose name was withheld by police pending notification of his next of kin, was struck by the limousine and a Chevrolet Suburban at 2:27 a.m. at Naylor Road, just over the District line in Prince George's County, according to the Secret Service and U.S. Park Police.
Biden had used the limousine Tuesday during a visit to Fort Lewis, Wash., and the Suburban had also been part of the vice president's motorcade during the trip, Wiley said.
Authorities said that a tractor-trailer hits the BMW driven by Jill Biden, wife of U.S. senator Joe Biden, on southbound I-95 south of Delaware 141 at around 9:45 a.m. when the tractor-trailer changed lanes and injured her.
According to Delaware State Police Corporal Jeff Whitmarsh, the Maryland tractor-trailer driver, Duane Vanderbosh, of Perryville, was driving a 1988 International tractor-trailer south in the left center lane of the highway next to the BMW being driven by Jill Biden, of Greenville. As the rig changed lanes to the left, it hit Mrs. Biden's car.
Jill Biden was injured to some extent and taken to Christiana Hospital, where she was treated for minor injuries and released.
Watch out! Get out of the way! Joe's driving or here comes his motorcade!
Biden lied, people died.
What is it with Herr Biden and auto-related deaths? I thought we put auto-related deaths to rest after Fat Ted Tumor Head Kennedy got a first-class ticket to Hell?
Is Herr Biden taking up the Fat Dead Ted Tumor Head Kennedy Legacy of killing people with automobiles? It certainly looks that way.
Bidencide? Or maybe Herr Biden is having these people killed, only he's making it look like a car accident? I mean, if Bush and Cheney can mastermind September 11, who knows if Biden is killing people under the guise of it being an "auto accident?"

Edward Woodward Dies
Actor Edward Woodward has died a the age of 79. BBC:
Veteran actor Edward Woodward has died aged 79, his agent has confirmed.
The Croydon-born star had been suffering from various illnesses, including pneumonia, and died in hospital, said Janet Glass.
Woodward is most famous for his roles in the cult 1973 horror film The Wicker Man, alongside Sir Christopher Lee, and TV series The Equalizer and Callan.
Sir Christopher described Woodward as "a very good friend and a splendid actor".
Ms Glass said he had been ill for several months and passed away surrounded by members of his family.
The actor, who lived in Hawker's Cove near Padstow, died at the Royal Cornwall Hospital in Truro.
"I knew him a very long time and he was a superb human being," she said.
"That integrity shone through in the roles he played. I can't ever remember, in all the productions he undertook, anyone having a bad word to say about him and he never had anything bad to say about anyone else either."
And from another BBC obituary story of Mr. Woodward:
The success of Callan earned him an award for TV Actor of the Year and led to Woodward starring in a long-running American television series, The Equaliser.
His five years in New York made him wealthy, but Woodward regretted making the series, which took a heavy toll on his health.
Working 20 hours at a time, he coped by smoking 100 cigarettes a day - and had a major heart attack.
But the role did win him a coveted Golden Globe for best actor in 1987.
"The Equalizer" was an awesome show. It's first season received so many complaints and public criticism about the level of violence and gunfire in the episodes that subsequent seasons were somewhat moderated - to a point - to the detriment of the content of the program and the issues it dealt with.
I don't think it was because the program and its creators deliberately intended to up the ante regarding the violent content; it was more that "The Equalizer" reflected real world violence and it did so without flinching. It was genuine, it was real, it was gritty and Woodward was suited-to-a-T for playing the character role of ex-spy/agent Robert McCall.
Full filmography here.
Two, of many, of Woodward's performances that are worth repeated viewings are the critically acclaimed film "Breaker Morant" (fantastic) and the cult classic "The Wicker Man."
Edward Woodward...a Class Act. May he rest in peace.

Obama Seeks Delay in Fort Hood Probe
Usually, it is impossible to keep The Libs and Progs from fast-tracking and rushing into an investigation. Any investigation.
But the Muslim-Terrorist-In-Chief, Dear Leader His Excellency Barack Saddam Hussein Obama, Junior wants to delay an investigation into the Fort Hood terrorist acts of Nidal Malik Hasan. APee:
Obama turned his attention home and pleaded for lawmakers to "resist the temptation to turn this tragic event into the political theater." He said those who died on the nation's largest Army post deserve justice, not political stagecraft.
Obama said he was not opposed to hearings — eventually. But he strongly pressed lawmakers to hold off until the probes now under way are completed.
"There is an ongoing investigation into this terrible tragedy," Obama said. "That investigation will look at the motives of the alleged gunman, including his views and contacts."
Notice he called what happened at Fort Hood a, "terrible tragedy," and not what it really is: Radical Islamic Terrorism.
We know the motives of Hasan. They can be summed up by Hasan himself when he uttered, 'Allahu Akbar'.
What is it Obama is trying to cover-up? Is he connected to Hasan in some way?
Obama is afraid to upset the delicate Radical Muslim world. The Religion of Peace. Yeah...I remember the peaceful protests over the Danish cartoons. Theo Van Gogh...he too was a victim of The Religion of Peace.
Thank Obama for showing the world Cowardice with a capital "C." When the U.S. experiences another terrorist attack - and it will, and it will happen while Obama is in office - be sure to thank Obama. He will have permitted and allowed it to happen. His weakness, his cowardice, his appeasement and his pacification will have invited another terrorist attack.
If Obama fought against terrorism and terrorists as hard as he fights FOX News, we could all sleep safely at night. But he won't do this. That's because he's a Muslim.

Bowing Obama or, How Barry Learned to Stop Wincing and Take it Up The Ass
Dear Leader His Excellency The Affirmative Action Prednint Barack Hussein Obama, Junior bowed to the Japanese Emperor. LA Times:
How low will he go? Obama gives Japan's Emperor Akihito a wow bow (Updated with video, pic).
(UPDATES: 12:22 p.m. A brief news video has been added below, showing the greeting in this photograph. Contrary to some claims, the video shows no reciprocal bow by the emperor, who traditionally bows to no one. And we've added a file photo from 2007 of Vice President Dick Cheney greeting the Japanese Emperor in the same door way in a different fashion.)
Here's how Former Vice President Dick Cheney greeted the Japanese Emperor:
America bows to no one, except when we have a Cowardly, Marxist, Pacifying, Appeasing Cokcsucker in the White House.
We all remember Pbama's submissive bow to the Saudi King:
Gay Barry. Flaming Barry. Barry likes having his butt up in the air waiting for penetrating incoming projectiles. Come out of the closet, Barry. There is no shame in your being gay. A sham, yes, a sham of everything you claim to be but aren't. Sham yes; shame no.

U.S. Army Suicide Rates on Track For Record High On Obama's Watch
The number of suicides among active- duty U.S. Army troops this year reached 133 in October, 18 more than in the same period last year and putting the service within reach of a new annual high.
The 133 reported suicides, including the National Guard and Reserves, between January and October compared with 115 during the same period in 2008 when the service recorded 140 by year’s end, an annual record, the Army said in a statement.
Increased suicides in the U.S. Military sent the Insane Liberal Clown Posse (ILCP) into fits of seething rage and venom-spitting hyperbole towards W. Bush when he was the president. Wanna bet the ILCP and the Pbama Cultists are being the dutiful, obedient, steeped-in-denial little Pillow-Biting goose-stepping Little Eichmanns that we all know they are?

Nearly 4,000 Dead in U.S. from H1N1...Blame Obama, it's His Katrina
Whew! 4,000 dead U.S. Soldiers were a big political deal for The Liberals, a political tool they used in denigrating and vilifying then-President George W. Bush.
We now have nearly 4,000 deaths in the United States from the H1N1 virus and the same LiberNazis who vilified Bush are saying...nothing about 4,000 of their fellow Americans dying from a lack of H1N1 immunizations due to a vaccine shortage.
Guess who is responsible for the vaccine shortage? That's right. It's The Affirmative Action Kenyan Prednint Dear Leader His Excellency Barack Hussein Obama, Junior. His Center for Disease Control has failed. His lack of preparedness at the federal level killed these 4,000 Americans.
Hell, even the World Socialist Web Site recognizes this:
A new estimate by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) places the US death toll from the swine flu, or H1N1 virus, much higher than had been previously reported. The death rate among the young and healthy is also far greater than both recent CDC estimates and that of normal flu strains.
Nearly 4,000 American have died as a result of the swine flu, out of an estimated 22 million who have been infected with the virus, according to the new CDC calculations, which are extrapolations based on data gathered in ten states.
Approximately three quarters of all deaths have been among those aged 18 to 64. About 540 teenagers, children and babies have died as a result of the swine flu—a figure four times higher than that reported last week by the CDC, and seven times the death total for a typical flu strain—with the heart of flu season, December through May, still to come.
There have been a total of 98,000 H1N1-related hospitalizations, with more than a third of these, 36,000, among those age 17 and under.
The Obama administration ordered approximately 250 million doses of the vaccine, and confidently predicted that 120 million of those would be available to the public by this point. Instead, the federal government has received only 42 million doses as of Thursday, and not all of these have been distributed.
The White House cannot claim that its response to H1N1 came for lack of time to prepare, with epidemiologists concluding last spring that the virus would produce a full-scale pandemic that could claim many lives.
Such has been the administration’s incompetence and indifference to the pandemic that commentators have suggested the swine flu may well become “Obama’s Katrina,” a reference to the callous and blundering response of the Bush administration to the hurricane that laid waste to the US Gulf Coast and its principal city, New Orleans, in 2005.
As was the case with Hurricane Katrina, the swine flu epidemic has revealed the decrepit state of infrastructure in the US and the indifference of a government whose overriding concerns are the profit margins of Wall Street banks and the imperialist wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Delivery and disbursal of the vaccine in the US has been compromised by the decimation of public health care over the past several decades through budget cutbacks and layoffs. This has only been accelerated by the economic crisis, with doctors, nurses and administrators being laid off from vital public health jobs even as they are most needed.
Way to go, Barry. You are doing a Heckuva' Job, darn it, just a Heckuva' Job.
This is all in The Kenyan's Master Plan...to kill as many Americans as possible.

Troop Morale Down in Obama's Continued Illegal Occupation of Afghanistan
Morale has fallen among soldiers in Afghanistan, where troops are seeing record violence in the 8-year-old war, while those in Iraq show much improved mental health amid much lower violence, the Army said Friday. It was the first time since 2004 that soldier suicides in Iraq did not increase. Self-inflicted deaths in Afghanistan were on track to go up this year.
I thought The ILCP said that since W. Bush failed to capture Osama Bin Laden in Afghanistan, that it was a failed war effort and that we should redeploy our Soldiers and bring them home. Well, Obama hasn't captured Bin Laden, so...why are we still in Afghanistan? What are the benchmarks? What is the point? Why are we there? Obama receives a Free Pass in not having to answer these same questions that were asked of W. Bush on a minute-by-minute basis by the ILCP during his Admin.
The Afghan report also found a shortage of mental health workers to help soldiers who needed it, partly because of the buildup Obama started this year with the dispatch of more than 20,000 extra troops.
Other findings of the Afghanistan survey included:
* Exposure to combat, long recognized as a strong factor in mental health problems, was significantly higher this year than rates in 2005 and similar to rates in 2007 for the combat units.
* Combat units reported significantly lower unit morale in the last six months of their tours of duty, more evidence of the wearing affect of long deployments.
But the bi-racial Kenyan-born piece of shit receives the Coveted Free Pass from all the good little goose-stepping Marxist, America-hating, knuckle-dragging drooling LiberNazis. This is no surprise to the rest of us. We know they hate America and they hate - absolutely hate - the U.S. Military.
All the bloodshed, all the torture, all the carnage, the decreased morale, the increase in suicides, the billions of dollar spent on Obama's Illegal Occupation of Afghanistan and Iraq. It's all his fault. He owns it now, fully and wholly. And so do his Cultists who, for almost eight years, did nothing but denigrate the U.S. Soldiers in Afghanistan.

The Skanky Miller Show: Nidal Malik Hasan's Murderous Rampage Not Terrorism
For instance, he said that Hasan's murderous rampage cannot really be classified as terrorism because "only 13 people died."
He said that Hasan's acts don't fall under the definition of terrorism because civilians were not targeted, only Military personnel.
He said that it is disrespectful to portray images of Barack Hussein Pbama, Junior with a Hitler-esque mustache. Awww. "Dat's. So. Sad." Especially considering how The Left never uses the politics of personal attack against their political opponents.
He said that Hasan's actions aren't terrorism because Hasan was "teased."
Awwwwww - poor diaper head was teased. Isn't that terrible? He must be the only one in the entire fucking world - let alone the Military - who has been teased. So of course, his actions are justified by Liberals. And using this justification, anyone teased by Liberals receives a "Get out of Jail Free" card. Huh, this has me thinking the rest of us can shoot and murder Liberals and Progressives with complete immunity considering how they tease anyone who doesn't believe what they believe.
The fact that Hasan targeted Military personnel should mean the crime is more heinous than if he had targeted civilians. After all, Hasan took an oath to protect his fellow Soldiers, an oath that is supposed to supersede one's religious beliefs, cultural background, race, ethnicity and skin color. But Hasan didn't honor his oath, did he.
And we now know that 13 is at least one of the magic numbers that is low enough to not qualify as being a "terrorist act." I'm not sure what the precise number of dead is supposed to be, or is supposed to reach, before it is declared terrorism, but we know that 13 dead...well, it's just not enough to be considered terrorism.
Then Fathead Jowly Jim Ward chimed in wondering how could one person, Hasan, kill so many people. Ward is proffering some sort of conspiracy theory. Yeah, uh-huh, he's probably right. Hasan had an accomplice. Probably situated on the Grassy Knoll.
It's okay to kill and murder Liberals, everyone. Get to it. We have complete and total immunity because we've been "teased" by Liberals.
HooRay! It's open season on killing Liberals! Hot Damn, this is going to be fun! I've been teased and ridiculed by Liberals. Guess that gives me complete immunity from going on a terroristic rampage of killing Liberals and Progressives. Now...what caliber should I choose? Any suggestions?
