What did he say?

Somehow I just didn't hear anything new or encouraging in Obama's latest speech given to Congress last night.

Maybe it was the distracting jumping up and down of the freaks behind him. Pelosi was especially cartoonish with her clapping and that Joker/Joan Rivers like distorted smile.

The whole ceremony was surreal. It was more like a king and his court, all worshiping themselves for being the benevolent saviors of the common folk who are too dumb to understand what is needed for their own good.

I even lost a bet with my wife. I was sure Obama would once again evoke the ghost of bin Laden to scare us into getting behind his 'surges' in Afganistan and Pakistan. He did mention the ever elusive al qaeda but the old tactic of raising the dead man for support of our killing innocents was conspicuous by its absence.

Patrick Martin fought through the distractions to give us an analysis of Obama's words if you are interested - Obama pledges bigger Wall Street bailout.

The whole royalty aspect of the American political elite gathering together to persuade the public that their crimes are not really crimes but actions of a higher calling reminded me of some words from In the Court of the Crimson King......

On soft gray mornings widows cry
The wise men share a joke;
I run to grasp divining signs
To satisfy the hoax.
The yellow jester does not play
But gentle pulls the strings
And smiles as the puppets dance
In the court of the crimson king.


  1. You noticed Pelosi, too (and I only saw clips, I won't watch anymore. Can't take it)?

    I'm not a shrink, but that woman looks like she is in a delusional denial. A dangerous one, seeing as they can just chuck reporters out the office -- -- by calling a guard (or Pete Stark -- -- can tell them to get the f*** out). They all need a bath down there (tar and feather soap), if you know what I mean. The elite arrogance and superiority they exude is most distasteful.

    So sad is has reached that point. Peace out...

  2. Let’s see if I understand Obama’s speechifiying:

    Wall Street gangsters, aided and abetted by a corrupt SEC, Congress and White House, have stolen trillions of dollars of pension funds and 401K retirement funds.

    They are in the process of stealing several trillion more in assets, by foreclosing on homes lost by Americans who lost their jobs due to Wall Street machinations.

    For all of these criminal activities and conspiracies, they are getting rewarded several trillion dollars more of OUR tax money.

    Is that about right?

    Guess I’d better get on my knees and thank “Massa Obama.”

    At least I still have the gold fillings in my mouth.

    As for Pelosi's weirdness, she's suffering from BOTOX poisoning.

  3. Stimulus bill gives $1 billion to Jewish social service providers February 17, 2009

    WASHINGTON (JTA) -- The economic stimulus bill enacted by President Obama will provide $1 billion to Jewish nursing homes and social service agencies, according to the United Jewish Communities.

    The funds come from the $87 billion that the legislation allots for state Medicaid programs as a result of an increase in the Federal Medical Assistance Percentage, or FMAP. An increase in FMAP was a top priority for UJC, the Jewish Council for Public Affairs, the Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism and other Jewish groups that lobbied for passage of the $787 billion bill signed Tuesday by Obama.

    The federation system receives about 1.4 percent of total Medicaid funds, so it will get more than $1 billion of the $87 billion provided in the stimulus package.

    Jewish groups advocated for a variety of forms of assistance to vulnerable populations that ended up in the final version of the legislation.

    ONE BILLION would help prevent about 10,000 Americans losing their homes to Wall Street shysters thru foreclosure.

    Too bad they're only just Americans.
