UPDATE: Carter’s Cash Caper

with 2 comments

I never claimed to be, aspired to be, nor pretended to be a fan of James Earl Carter. Simply put, he was one of the least effective Presidents of the twentieth century and yet he is a hero to many. Why that is, is beyond me. I believe that the only reason he was elected was that he was the “Anti Nixon”. He was the image of propriety, charity, and a real American. Miss Lillian sure seemed to have raised herself a good’un.

Let’s fast forward into the twenty-first century and take a peek at what “Jimmy” has been up to. One of Jimmy’s latest acts of charity is to criticize other Presidents. This practice used to be taboo for former Presidents to do, but hey, Jimmy is a righteous man so it must be ok now.

Carter’s Geo-Political views, once heralded as a result of the Camp David Accords, now challenge us to believe that he thinks in terms of Americanism. His demand that America should give Hamas millions of dollars is an example of this. One should also remember how he handed Iran over to the Ayatollahs and his weakness during the Iran Hostage Crisis but the latest news on Jimmy should have even his staunchest supporters scrambling for some damage controls.

Discovered while hiking along a Carter paper trail, was the fact that the Carter Center in Atlanta was supported in part by the Saudi Bin Ladin Group. Since September 2000, $1,000,000 has been siphoned to the Carter Center through Bakr M. Bin Ladin.

Could this donation have been made in gratitude for Carter’s “Blame America First” tour?

TERESA adds: Julie Gorin’s insightful article on Carter’s Lifetime Bigotry and Racism. Shameful.

The major bloggers have Haditha covered. We’ll leave it in their able hands. Don’t miss the experts’ comments or the MSM liberals pathetic interviews.

Fraud Part Of Public Service’s Job Requirements

John Stossel with another eye-opening myth buster. And here I thought that everything you read in the Congressional Records actually happened.

Linda Chavez’s Republican hypocrisy can be thrown in there with the mix.

Japanese Scientists Allow Mona Lisa To Speak

leave a comment »

Inspired by Monty Python, Japanese acoustics experts have created a way to hear what the Mona Lisa’s voice would sound like. Mona Lisa was heard to stomp her feet and say “È romanzo, nell’interesse di qualità.”

Translation? “It’s fiction, for goodness sakes.”

Only With The Yankees

leave a comment »

I asked Tony if I could post that there was no god in Toronto. He said that’s only when we play against the Yankees and lose. Boston got their asses kicked tonight and had a chance for a comeback in the 7th inning. Pitching in general is just in the pits.

Boston Red Sox loses to Toronto Blue Jays 5 – 8 in Toronto.

I’ll still say it… there is no god in Toronto.

Red Sox 30 – 20 .600
Yankees 29 – 20 .592
Blue Jays 29 – 22 .569

Pre-Teenage Years Can Start The Battle Against Breast Cancer

leave a comment »

Latest studies show that females can start reducing their risks for breast cancer as young as pre-teens by exercise and a low-fat diet. Makes sense to me.
