Just a thought.

I wonder if all that traffic from Iran (and indeed around the world) is causing an unprecedented slowdown of Internet speeds not seen since dial-up days, and hindering at least my end of the Information Superhighway from loading web pages and connecting to them.

It is a bittersweet predicament to be in. On the one hand, I want Iranians (and everyone else!!!) to be morally free if not politically-- and the free exchange of ideas facillitated by the Internet and cellphone technology is vital to that end. On the other hand, we all have a lot of work to do to accomplish this-- and the Internet needs to be freed up as well as its users!

I know I am stating the obvious, but that's what bloggers do. I am sure that more qualified heads are being scratched at this moment to come up with a plan or course of action to rescue this wonderful resource from information overload

Thank God for it.

It's bad. But thank God there are people Twittering about events and developments from Tehran, Iran and around the world.

Search, Twitter, and be moved.


Well, in the interest of providing hope to a seemingly hopeless situation (the state of our economy and President Obama's socialist decapitation of it), I want to link Mises.org here.

If you have any interest (and spare time), check out any of a myriad of multimedia resources there which will educate you in short order about the ills and remedies of any economy, but particularly the remedy of Austrian Economics.

Like I said, for a free/low-cost, self-driven economics education, this is a great place to learn the right way to do economics--something "they" did not teach me in school!

I thought I would join the chorus of onlookers and admirers of the world who saw our disputed (or beloved) president kill a fly during a televised interview. CNBC chief Washington correspondent John Harwood was interviewing President Barack Obama when a fly interrupted the proceedings. Obama then swatted it effectively and basked in the glory of his enemy's demise.

It's all over the news and the blogosphere. Even Rush Limbaugh (of course) got in on the act. On his show today, he made hilarious comments and played a sound clip from his original TV show, during which he steps on a fly and shows it to the camera and audience.

The best soundbite from the whole exchange of audio on his show was Rush's comment:

RUSH: Later in the show, I then murder the sucker, but not with my hands like Obama. I used my shoe. And killing a fly with a shoe is a much bigger insult in the fly world than killing an insect or a fly with your hand.

I laugh out loud every time I read that last sentence.

As you may or may not know, the biggest insult you can heap on your Middle East neighbor is to pound your shoe (or throw it at him, as one Iraqi reporter did to former President Bush) in a demonstration of disgust and disdain.

I know, jokes you have to explain aren't that funny. It still strikes my funny bone.

With a shoe.

I'm going out on a limb here and posting an article from the American Thinker, from a link on Rush Limbaugh's website, wherein it is posited that Mahmoud Ahmedinejad DID NOT WIN THE ELECTION in Iran.

In the article, the author makes it abundantly clear that Iran's "elections" are shams designed by the mullahs (religious leadership) to showcase their already-selected choice for office. The popular vote is a farce wherein the nation registers its disapproval of the mullahs' selections. Here is a quote:

"The great majority of the people of Iran are disillusioned and even disgusted by the mediaeval incompetent, oppressive, and corrupt rule of the mullahs, irrespective of which mafia gang is in power. The votes, more than anything else, are protest ballots cast against the entire system, rather than indications of support for the so-called conservative-moderate coalition." [emphasis mine]

Here is the diamond I found:

"However, the turnout was massive, a near record high 85 percent of Iran's 49.2 million eligible voters. Based on the information from Mousavi's website , a group of Interior Ministry employees have leaked out the following results which seem to be closer to reality than the one released by the establishment:

Total eligible: 49.2 Million

Participated in the election: 75% to 85%
Mir Hussein Mousavi: 45%
Mehdi Karoobi: 33%
Mahmoud Ahmadinejad: 13%
Mohsen Rezai: 9%

Cancelled votes: 3%

The article goes on to say that in spite of the regime's brutal and oppressive ways, the people are rendering them less effective and thus scaring them to death. May the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob help them to rise up peacefully and win their country back from the Enemy (Satan).

Here is a story with a sad ending-- at least it looks that way for public education:

Kansas Teacher Claims Conservative Views Led To Loss of Job

Don't get me wrong: I'm not saying all public education is bad. But I have to feel sorry for those who don't "get it" when it comes to truth.

The last question in the article is asked by a former student of the teacher. She asks, "Why would they let a good teacher go?"

Because they're stupid. Read the story.

In keeping with the Fairness Doctrine, I am posting this link to Snopes.com for the purpose of balancing the argument which continues regarding President Obama's birth certificate. The thing that really convinced me was the clipping of the birth announcement in the Hawaiian newspaper that day.

Is that a fake, too? The debate never ends...


The official interview with Obama's teleprompter, affectionately known as TOTUS (Teleprompter of the United States), is here:

Just want to post this link to Barak Obama's Teleprompter's Blog:

I give credit to my brother's blog, Machiavellian Messiah, for showing me the link to BOTB. Actually, it is known as TOTUS (Teleprompter of the United States), and readers of its blog are known as FOTs (Friends of TOTUS).

I encourage you to read both blogs, but especially my brother's.

You know, this story keeps coming up like a bowling pin in the ocean (I assume it will float, but I've never seen it chronicled on David Letterman's "Will It Float?" segment).

There is still sharp controversy surrounding his birth certificate, and indeed his citizenship--and therefore, his right to be president!

I'm curious what all the hubbub is about. So I go to WorldNetDaily and see a few stories still doubting his legitimacy. I order a copy of WhistleBlower magazine using my hard-earned Unemployment Insurance money and await its arrival in the mail.

The April 2009 issue, with the headline, "Your Papers, Please?" is touted by WND founder and CEO Joseph Farah as:

"...the most complete and thorough exposé of the eligibility questions surrounding Barack Obama's presidency. It is an indictment of the process that put him in the White House Jan. 20 of this year.

"Although Article II section 1 of the Constitution clearly requires that all presidents be 'natural born citizens,' the 2008 election proved, Farah points out, 'that no controlling legal authority bothered to establish' that Obama was qualified for the Oval Office. 'Everybody dropped the ball,' said Farah.

"The biggest reason interest in the Obama eligibility issue continues to mount, with ever more legal actions being filed and more Americans demanding answers, says WND Managing Editor David Kupelian, is simple: 'Barack Obama is hiding something.' "

Well, we Americans can engage in this sort of thing because after all, we are a nation of checks and balances.
