Erik Holder baby! You need to call Obama right away!

Click to make this guy seem larger

With the election now only a few months away, the Democratic Party needs more than ever to show philosophical solidarity by flocking together around their President and Supreme Leader. Even Erik Holder could benefit by hanging near (or on) the President's right arm. Heck, a group picture with our main man surrounded by folks like Holder, Reid and Pelosi might even serve as a clear reminder of just what four more years of his iron-fisted rule could bring! Let’s take a moment to think back to all that has been accomplished by this stellar group lo these past few years:

Obama Nannycare – Surely, now that the Supreme Court has given its approval, everyone can now see what a genius this man is.With over two thousand pages, experts predict it will be sometime in the next decade before everything in it is understood. Truly, a document for the ages. Yes? No?

The No Budget Budget – Only Obama and the Democrats could have had the leadership to show the world that you can run a government with absolutely no controls on spending. Budget! We don’t need no stinking Budget!

Foreign Relations – This man named Obama, this President of the Free World, now stands alone when it come to Foreign Affairs. Uh, that’s it. He pretty much stands alone now as the one friend he did have, Israel, can no longer stand the guy. But wait! I understand that he is warming up to the Muslim Brotherhood...

The Great Comer Together Guy – Let’s all face that fact that were it not for those insane Republicans, this man (who I secretly like to refer to as the New Moses) would have passed more significant legislation than he did…which has been pretty much nothing to date. So, is that really a bad thing? Perhaps he's just holding back until he gets re-elected...

Fast and Furiously – The President has craftily managed to not only exert his Executive Privilege on suppressing all those pesky documents that crazy man Issa has been seeking, but has also made the point to Americans everywhere that his government business is really none of their business. I say bravo to that! I mean being a mushroom is a good thing, right?

Well, that's about all I could find. Perhaps there's more! Please let me know if there's more...

No, it's a penalty insists the White House!

First it was a penalty. Then it was a tax. Now it's a penalty again. Huh?

The war of words over what to call the fine attached to the federal health care overhaul's most controversial provision continued Friday, as the White House took issue with the Supreme Court's argument -- even though that argument alone spared President Obama's law.

The five-justice majority argued that, while the fine imposed by the law for not buying health insurance would otherwise be unconstitutional, the fine is actually legal under Congress' authority to tax.

Ergo, the fine is officially a "tax" in the eyes of the court. The law stands.

My take: The difference between the two forms of revenue income ( commerce mandate and a tax) are terms that even the most junior statesman is well aware of.

The fact that the Democratic Party and the President spent so much time assuring a Nation that is was the former and not the latter is very telling as to the core integrity of those who would deceive a Country.

Forsythkid’s Top Five List of cities we could sell to China!

Alrighty! It seems the Fed owes China quite a huge sum of money. I think we all know that. And, it seems that our little friends have also figured out Mr. Bernecke and his plan to print our country out of debt. So, what say we offer these little people some honest to goodness real estate that they could come over and take charge of?  Here’s my top five list of candidate cities to sell off:

No 5 – Akron, Ohio

This city in Ohio made the top five list for the simplest of reasons. I’ve never actually met anyone from there! So, really, who would miss it if it went under Chinese control? Value: $20 billion.

No 4 – Chicago, Illinois

Old Chi town is going down! At least that’s the word on the street these days. Selling this city to the Chinese would give these people a pretty decent football team not to mention one hell of an L-train. Value: 45 billion

No 3 – Detroit, Michigan

The Motor City’s best days are now in the rearview mirror as far as I’m concerned. Would give the Chinese a chance to experience some really heavy lake effect snowfalls! Value: 15 billion

No 2 – LA, California

Now here’s a real no brainer! LA already boasts a large Chinese population with only a boatload of Latino’s coming into that city while everyone else quietly leaves. In addition, let's not forget that this piece of real estate could drop off into the ocean at any moment! Value: 50 billion

No 1 – New York City

This Democratic bastion of loons, misfits and genetic hairballs should be offered to China for free! Hopefully, they would be also dumb enough to take over this royal mess. It would give them a nice sea port over here and who knows! Perhaps it can all work out! Value: $1

After adding everything up on the old calculator, I come up with a figure of just over 1.3 trillion or about what we owe those yellow midgets. Voila! Suddenly America is not only out of debt, but we've also has taken care of the Democratic Party problem. Sounds like a win win situation to me!

When hot becomes almost normal!

“There’s something going on here
What it is ain’t exactly clear!”

Another mind numbingly hot day draws slowly to a close. Another in a series of days spent huddled inside the way one might during a hard winter blizzard, only baby it’s not the cold that’s the problem round here, it’s the heat. The kind of heat that would do the Dog Days of August proud, only it’s still June and the summer of 2012 has barely begun!

It’s seven AM and the temperature overnight has never dropped below 74 Fahrenheit! Already, the talking heads on TV are warning that the string of one hundred degree days (three so far) are about to be a string of 110 degree days. I get up and go out while it’s still relatively cool, knowing full well that by noon, I’ll once again be closed up in my home with the AC running full blast.

Somewhere out there will be those electric power people or EPP’s, watching their load meters climb steadily towards the danger zone. Inching every closer to a point where the brownouts and rolling blackouts begin in earnest.

Later on, I’ll stick my head outside and it will feel just like an oven. I’ll worry about my fellow men who lack central air and who are suffering through that day as though living in a world Dante created. How many will die of heat stroke, I wonder. I shake my head and duck back inside where the AC has just kicked on and will now begin a grim struggle to keep my home cool for the next fifteen hours or until well past midnight whichever comes first! As it groans and clanks, I picture in my mind that little metal wheel on the power meter outside, spinning as though on some weird form of metallic meth. An ‘electric high’ that will last for most of the summer, spitting out the occasional bill I can’t afford to pay.

On the flip side, I envision the owners of my local power grid doing a little jig of joy as they contemplate the incredible wealth now headed their way. (But, that thought leaves my mind poste-haste. Who really wants to dwell on those fools anyways)? Best that I focus on adapting to a changing world where the word hot will soon become synonymous with normal as Global Warming reasserts its own version of hell on earth.

Obama to offer immunity to hundreds of thousands!

The Obama Administration will stop deporting and issue work permits to as many as 800,000 young illegal immigrants who came to the U.S. as children and have never committed a crime, Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano said Friday.

Napolitano said the change is needed to ensure enforcement resources are not expended on “low-priority cases” and are instead focused on people who “meet enforcement priorities.” But the move angered Republicans, who viewed it as an overreach by the administration on a matter that should be addressed legislatively.

My take: This latest move by the President is one of shear political desperation! He is trying to appeal to the Hispanic and Latino vote (at least from those who are here legally) as none of these ‘pardoned’ illegal’s can vote.

The message he is sending to everyone, in the meantime, is that no law cannot be broken, as long as it means his re-election.

Recession has wiped out two decades of wealth!

WASHINGTON — The recent recession wiped out nearly two decades of Americans' wealth, according to government data released Monday, with middle-class families bearing the brunt of the decline.

The Federal Reserve said the median net worth of families plunged by 39 percent in three years, from $126,400 in 2007 to $77,300 in 2010. That puts Americans roughly on par with where they were in 1992.

NYC principal bars students from singing 'God Bless the USA' at graduation!

A New York City principal has pulled the plug on patriotism by preventing students from singing "God Bless the USA" at their graduation.

The decision has sparked fireworks at a school filled with proud immigrants.

Greta Hawkins, principal of PS 90, the Edna Cohen School, will not allow kindergarten students to belt out the beloved Lee Greenwood ballad, also known as "Proud to be an American," at their moving-up ceremony.

My Thoughts – Well, most of you already know what my thoughts are concerning this latest Marxist thrust of the followers of the current Leftist Administration. Get ready, everyone, to take back this country in November! What a load of crap! I want my Republic back!

And the beat of Syrian executions goes on!

BEIRUT — Bullet-pocked homes and bloodstained walls. Shell casings littering the ground in a ghost town still smoldering from the onslaught.

A United Nations observer team on Friday finally reached the site of Syria's latest apparent massacre, a now-abandoned farming village where opposition activists accuse pro-government forces of killing dozens of civilians this week in an artillery bombardment and grisly door-to-door executions.

The world is warming for real, scients warn!

(CNN) -- It's hot out there. But this time, it's more than idle water cooler talk, according to weather scientists.

At the same time the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's National Climatic Data Center has released a report noting that this spring in the United States has been the warmest since record-keeping began in 1895, a group of scientists has published a paper in the journal Nature warning that the planet is approaching a critical tipping point because of climate and other factors. 

My thoughts - The message this sad world of ours is sending is getting clearer and clearer. Halve the population of the world, right now, or go over the edge. It's your choice. You can do this, or nature will do it for you. Think I'll hedge my bets on Mother Nature... 

More teens commiting suicides! Can you blame them?

Scary statistics from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released Thursday revealed that the number of attempted suicides among teenagers had increased from 6.3 percent in 2009 to 7.8 percent in 2011.

The information comes from the CDC’s 2011 National Youth Risk Behavior Survey (YRBS), a report designed to find health-risk behaviors among youth and young adults related to injury and violence, sexual behaviors, alcohol, and drugs.  Along with the increase in attempted suicides, the survey also showed an increase in teens texting behind the wheel along with an increase in marijuana use.

According to the CDC, suicide accounts for 13 percent of all deaths among youth and young adults aged 10 to 24 and is the third leading cause of death for that age group.

My thoughts - DUH! - A crappy, corrupt and invasive nanny government, student loans that mean long term government service (10 years), way too much information via the Internet and ... STOP! Hold it right there, you moms and dads - Kids drink information the way hummingbirds go after nectar, it's natural and the internet is the wellspring - did anyone think of this, or care? Are you even thinking right now? No, I didn't think so...

Accused men who beat a San Francisco Giants fan go to trial!

LOS ANGELES -- The two men accused of beating a San Francisco Giants fan after last season's opening day game at Dodger Stadium were ordered to stand trial Friday on charges stemming from the brutal attack

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge George Lomeli made the ruling after a five-day preliminary hearing against Louie Sanchez, 30, and Marvin Norwood, 31

The pair are accused of mayhem and assault and battery in the attack on Bryan Stow, a paramedic from Northern California who attended the game at Dodger Stadium. Stow suffered brain damage and is permanently disabled.

The violence drew scrutiny of stadium security and fan behavior. The defense typically does not present a case during such preliminary hearings. Both men have pleaded not guilty.

My thoughts – If these men are tried and found guilty by a jury of their peers – please let them be executed in whatever manner is afforded by the state.This form of bestiality fuels the arming of America, and can you blame them?

Whoever beat up this poor man, to the point of near death, are prime examples of just how incredibly stupid and debased human beings can be and yet still make it to a mature age. Any man who is capable of harming another innocent in such a horrible manner is the spawn of the devil and have no place living on this planet. God please forgive them because I will never.

Critique: Marie Callender’s Herb Roasted Chicken

Whoa there partner! What we got here is perhaps the all American meal! Chicken with the bone in, corn and mashed pertaters! Wow! And, at only about four dollars per this could be a real steal. Or could it? Only way to find out will be to stick her in the microwave and see what’s up the old skirt.

Right off the bat, I’m a little confused when the box directions say to cut a slit over the vegetables. Are they talking just the corn or would that also include the pertaters? OK, then, I’m going to guess they mean just the corn since the mashed potatoes are in there together all cozy-like with them chicken parts.  Next, you  are instructed to nuke this baby on high for four minutes, then you stir them potatoes like there’s no tomorrow and then you reseal and give ‘er another go in the microwave for bout three minutes or so. Then, ya’ll get ready to eat!

Here I have a picture of the finished meal. Hmm. Maybe the arrangement could use some work. Well, who really cares…as long as it tastes good. (Remembering now, this whole shebang cost me four bucks, so you get what you pay for…)

So, how did it taste. That, after all, is the point of any food critique!

Nutritionally, you’re getting it in the old caboose with this dish. I’m sorry to have to report that the cholesterol is at 45% of your daily needs while the salt is almost a third. Not very good numbers if you’re watch either. The caloric content stands at 470, so that puts this offering pretty far up the scale for just one meal.

As to the taste! Well, that was a bit of a disappointment also. The taters looked and tasted like toothpaste (perhaps I didn’t stir them enough or more likely they were not very good to begin with)! The chicken was just OK while the corn was the only part of the meal I really did enjoy. Sorry to say, this one will not be revisiting my humble place in the near future. Scored only a 6 or less!

Update: March 27, 2013 - And yes, I decided to give this meal another chance. Call me crazy...

The meal (on sale) cost just $2.50! Wow! I'm guessing that's a good deal. Right?  I prepared it as before, but this time I made sure to add some butter to the mashed potatoes.

The results:  The chicken - just acceptable - still not sure where the 'thigh' portion originates on the chicken. The potatoes - well, any portion you don't eat could be used as bondo for your car, perhaps. The corn - great as it was last time! Bottom line, even at $2.50, this dish should get a pass.

Update: October 30, 2013 - No small amount of time has now passed since I last made the mistake of purchasing this meal from Marie Callender. But, as a testament to my short memory - I bought this sucker again! I figured that perhaps, since it's so close to Halloween I might be able to resurrect it from the dead. Well, it was a thought anyway.

Sadly, this meal was identical to the previous two, even down to the mysterious piece of chicken stuck firmly in the middle of the mashed taters....

Update: January 12, 2015 -  The cost of this mysterious meal was $2.99, but this time things had
changed! I was able to discern quite clearly what the chicken parts were! Swimming in a sluggish sea of mashed pertaters was a thigh and a leg! Clear, Marie C must be following my blog and mended their ways by offering real chicken parts! And, OK, perhaps it was the passage of time in that the meal had improved to some extent. Still, it will always remain a weird sort of duck as you have to fish around for the chicken in all them potatoes! A messy meal that requires lots of napkins for sure.
