Happy Draw Mohammed Day.
Archive for May, 2010
A harbinger of November loomed this past week when predominate Senators from both sides, including turncoat Arlen Specter were booted out in the primaries this past Tuesday. Think the voters are fed up with Washington, being led by the Socialist leader Barry Obama? If you had any doubts, they should be gone by now. All these Incumbents, who haven’t conveniently retired, are on notice that if they are against the will of the people, the will of the people will toss them out. Just look at Republican Trey Greyson from Kentucky, who was booted out by Rand Paul, son of Ron Paul. Why? Because this incumbent voted for the TARP bailout program. Bad-move Trey, enjoy your time off.
So the Democrats kept John Murtha’s old seat in Blue State Pennsylvania. Doesn’t mean much to me, as the grandfather of them all Arlen Specter was tossed out on his Kiester. If this isn’t a big shout out that people are getting ready to flood the polls this November, then non-believers are in denial. Arkansas’s Blanche Lincoln is next on the hit list, being forced into a run-off this June.
Whether or not this incumbent shooting match will spell big Republican Victories in November remains to be seen. Will the Tea Party movement move toward the Republican side or will they just move towards non-political candidates? Only time will tell, but I do know that those of that still believe in this country are getting what we want: the people taking their country back!

This coming Thursday is one of my favorite holidays of the year, behind Christmas, Independence Day, and Talk Like a Pirate Day: Draw Mohammed Day.
The premise of this event is very simple: I am not a Muslim. I have absolutely no need, desire, or requirement to bow to the whims of the Koran or those who interpret it in a way that would ban me from drawing Mohammed. In fact, the use of Mohammed in art and imagery is well-documented, to the point where, throughout history, even Muslims drew his picture without any fear of reprisal from extremists.
And yet today, people who aren’t under the thumb of the most oppressive major religion on earth are cowering before Islam. Interestingly, they have no fear of insulting Christians. This may have something to do with the fact that there haven’t been any reported terrorist incidents against artists who defame Christ, but those who have drawn or depicted Mohammed or have questioned the sincerity of the Religion of Peace have often found themselves at the end of a Koran-inspired goon squad, and in some cases have been attacked and killed.
This is ridiculous.
So, on May 20, a bunch of freedom-loving folks from around the world are gathering together for the first annual Draw Mohammed Day. I will be participating and will share my image here. I would encourage you to draw your own image, but…. a few thoughts:
First, try to be at least somewhat pleasant. While pictures of Mohammed eating a canned ham with his camel wife may have comedy value, that’s not really the point. This isn’t about comedy – it’s about freedom.
Second, be aware that some people will find this offensive – usually people who’re more concerned about insulting one group of people and are less concerned about insulting another group of people who are in direct opposition to the first group. What we need to realize and they need to learn is that it’s OK for them to be offended.
Finally, be creative. Seriously… Mohammed eating a canned ham? It’s been done.
See you on Thursday.

Sometimes, you just can’t help laughing at the state of affairs in the world. Laughter helps the world go ’round. It also distracts my brain from its deep-seeded desire to eat its way out of the back of my skull for having been exposed to the ongoing theater of the absurd that is the war on the Tea Parties.
Now, it seems that our beloved Teleprompter has joined in with the self-appointed clowns of the left in referring to those who disagree with Obama, Communism, and the general flushing of our Constitution, principles, and nation down the toilet… by vulgar sexual slang. Honestly, if it were just him as a private citizen, we could almost laugh it off. Especially the whole hypocrisy part, where he calls for civility while at the same time calling people names like any good 6-year-old bully would do. But A) he’s the President; and B) it’s a pattern of behavior by members of the left.
From unapologetic vulgar sexual slang to bizarre theories of assistance based on political voting patterns to false accusations of racist comments to conspiracy theories that would normally get one committed to an asylum, the left’s war on the right – and common sense – continues, unstopped by any of those pesky “facts” or “opposition in the media”.
And they wonder why the latest polls show a butt-whoopin’ coming this November.
So during the presidential election in 2008, one of the main cornerstone’s of Obama’s campaign (besides Socialist Change) was criticism of then President Bush and the 4 day wait in response to the devastation in Louisiana and Mississippi caused by Hurricane Katrina. For months President Bush was hounded by the slow response of FEMA and relief by the Federal Government. Of course the fact that then Democrat Governor of Louisiana, Kathleen Blanco, turned away Red Cross Relief efforts that day after Hurricane Katrina struck is never mentioned. Months on end, we heard basically how President Bush screwed it up, and well he hates black people.
Now, because of the tragic explosion and sinking of BP’s oil platform in the coast, which is causing 5,000 barrels a day to pollute the gulf and wash up in Louisiana and threaten 5 other states, it only took Obama NINE days to take notice, and ELEVEN days for the EPA to get into gear. Where is the media on this presidential blunder? Where is it on the news for 24 hours a day? Why Obama must hate white people, because all those people who make their lively hood by running shrimping boats are going to go out of business. There is nothing like a little oil flavoring to season our Shrimp Etouffee.
Of course, common sense dictates that disasters, whether caused by Mother Nature, or by human accident will happen and occur from time to time. Human lives will be lost, no matter what race, color or creed of those involved. It is always a tragedy when these things occur, and in many cases these things cannot be prevented no matter how many safety procedures or precautions we take. The matter of fact to lay the blame of Katrina on President Bush and lay the blame of BP’s disaster on President Obama is an oxymoron. The issue I have is one: Is it really up to the Federal Government to provide relief? Note: Florida and not the Federal Government has provided its own hurricane relief efforts. and Secondly: If you are going to criticize President Bush for Katrina, is it not only right to criticize President Obama for the BP scenario? I mean don’t you think a nine-day response is worse than a four-day response? And Obama recently eased restrictions on Oil Drilling Platforms as well. Ain’t that a wonder?
