I make every effort to foster a ‘safe place’ for all types of discussion. There are no topics I consider off-limits. For that matter, most language is tolerated if it’s within context. However there is one word that’s absolutely forbidden.
The four-letter “F” word.
I find the “F” word so offensive that I’ve had to post signs during get-togethers reminding my friends that it’s not to be used within the walls of my home. At first they laugh, but then I remind them I’ve asked people to leave because they refused to stop using it.
I have to admit there is a longer list of words that I find disgusting, crude and distasteful. These words can cause me to flinch visibly when uttered in my presence. These are the kinds of words that if your kid comes in the room and employs them in a sentence, your face squishes up like you just bit into a lemon. But that one word, that single most offensive word, is the one that earns them a slap across the face. Possibly two.
I’m regularly appalled, as I’m sure you are, by how common the “F” word is used in public. I’m even beginning to hear it on television! It is commonly used in movies and music… and astonishingly, no one appears to care! It seems to easily slip off the tongue of young people and adults alike. Protesters waive it around on signs, even politicians employ it with ease and often loudly.
Just writing about this is making me feel dirty.
But we all know we can never fix that which we refuse to recognize.
So, for those of you easily offended, please cover your eyes… now.
There! I said it.
(I apologize for typing it out loud. I need to go was my hands, and find a random kid to slap a couple times… just because.)
“Fair” is the most horrific and misused word in any language.
“Fair” is a word used to divide.
“Fair” a tool used to destroy reason.
“Fair” is as undefinable as it is unachievable.
Each of us has a different definition of its meaning making it the perfect escape for those whose arguments are too weak to defend and have no other option but to imply any disagreement they encounter is malevolent.
It’s only use is to justify theft, oppression, discrimination, death and destruction.
It’s a word that above all others should be permanently removed from our lexicon.

If you haven’t yet viewed the interview of Bill Clinton on the Today Show… you must.
OK. First, Who was THAT Guy? It certainly wasn’t the Bill Clinton we all grew up to Know and Suspect.
Obviously this was some imposter brought in by The Clintons to throw us all off the track.
Between the appearance of a cadaver and all the bug eyed ‘Hems’ and ‘Haws’ there can be no doubt THIS was Not Bill Clinton.
So bad was this interview you might think it was the first time he had heard about the assertions emanating from the “Clinton Cash” book regarding his, and his wife’s, perpetually shady personal wealth accumulation. It even arrives at a moment when you could expect him to break into a loud “WHAAaaAAaAaaaaaaaaat?!”
This version of Bill Clinton was clearly unprepared for the very interview set up so He could knock it out of the park.
As much as I enjoy Bill stumbling around a bunch of softballs questions which were certainly pre-screened before the interview, it was genuinely painful to watch.
This is very different from the polished, prepared, statements we expect from the Clintons.
So what does this mean?
It means this book has them seriously concerned. More so than I would have expected. To understand what I’m saying you have to remember, these were the people who illegally accessed 400 FBI files on members of Congress… They were the people who purposely destroyed the lives and livelihoods of a number of women all because Bill had, or tried to have, sex with them… often without their approval.
These are the people who go to funerals and laugh their heads off until the moment they spy a camera and suddenly become sullen and consumed with grief.
These are the people who would debate on the meaning of “is” and the definition of “sex”.
They steal furniture from the White House… their staff ripped all the “W” keys off of the White House computer keyboards before the Bush staffers have to take over… they rented out the Lincoln Bedroom.
These are the people whose friends praised them because they were such good liars.
I must say I’m surprised.
What I just sat through was far from the caliber of work I expect from a Clinton.
So now I’m fully anticipating a statement from the Clinton Camp that “Bill was body-snatched by aliens…” because that could be the only explanation for such a train wreck.
I hadn’t planned on reading Schweizer’s book as I already know these people are the worst of the worst… and I don’t need more examples or evidence.
But now I have to.
And here’s a question… Is ‘Tax Avoidance’ now Cool since Romney’s not running?
Are You Ready?

Get ready to get Hammered.
Actually… getting hammered might be the best way to deal with what you’re in for.
The Left has no victory… no achievement… no success they can point to as justification for you voting for them. And to keep up the façade of everything not just being “okay” but “Improving” they need more money. A lot more money. Well, You and I are out of money and not buying that everything is Okay, let alone Improving. In fact, it seems that Major News Outlets are the only one’s climbing on the “everything is okay” bandwagon offered up by the Obama Administration.
With Detroit bankrupt and more to follow including the entire state of California, the majority of us Hating Socialized Medicine, Work Hours being Cut, Salaries dropping, Unemployment Rising and the Dollar being Devalued the Progressive Liberals will have to go after Someone.
Enter the Banks.
As if it hasn’t been bad enough for our lenders being forced by our elected officials (Hello Barney Frank and Chris Dodd) to give people money they could never pay back, they are about to get a hefty second dose of a pointed finger accompanied by a shrill scream of how Evil they are. This is the only page left in the “gin up the base” play book.
So batten the hatches and get ready for the storm. Get ready to hear about all the “favors” granted to the banks by a benevolent Government. Get ready to hear a constant whine of how unfair the banks have been to those segments of society who always seem to get treated unfairly. Get ready for the barrage of example where the banks have not yet paid their dues for the malfeasance during the housing bubble and subsequent collapse…
Even though it was Representative Barney Frank and Senator Chris Dodd who designed to scenario for it occur, then forced it to happen.
Why again are these two not in jail?
Anyway, here we go! It’s election time!
