You gotta love the humor of my Great American friends, such as AGB who sent this in.

It's All About The Ice Cream
Also sent in by a true Patriot.



(author unknown)

In honor of the 44th President of the
United States, Baskin-Robbins Ice Cream
has issued a new flavor, "Barocky Road".

Barocky Road is a blend of half Vanilla,
half Chocolate, and surrounded by
Nuts and Flakes.

The Vanilla portion of the mix is not
openly advertised and usually
denied as an ingredient.

The Nuts and Flakes are all very
bitter and hard to swallow.

The cost is $100.00 per20scoop.

When purchased it will be presented
to you in a large beautiful cone, but
then the Ice Cream is taken away and
given to the person in line behind you.

Thus you are left with an empty Wallet,
no change, holding an empty cone,
with no hope of getting any Ice Cream.

Aren't you feeling stimulated?

Barack Obama Invited to Speak at the University of Notre Dame

Is School Honor a Dishonor to Catholics?

On May 17, 2009, Barack Obama will be honored as Notre Dame's commencement speaker, Notre Dame's president Rev. John I. Jenkins invited Obama to the event. The “honor” has outraged many Catholics and should earn the ire of all Christians.

Barack Obama’s policies and ideals run counter to morality and are in line with a perverse pro-abortion stance, which transcends the usual Democratic and Republican debate on the abortion issue. In the world of moral relativism, Barack Obama is its champion.

Obama’s radical abortion stance and position as an avid foe of the Born Alive Protection Act [1] places him left of NARAL Pro-Choice America. NARAL released a statement that said, “NARAL does not oppose passage of the Born Alive Infants Protection Act. Floor debate served to clarify the bill’s intent and assure us that it is not targeted at Roe v. Wade or a woman’s right to choose.” [2]

The radical abortion issue alone should revolt every American, including those Pro-Choice Christians and non-Christians, but Obama’s radical ideals do not end there.

Obama failed to protect children from pornographic material in public libraries and schools, [3] Obama was the only senator to vote against measure SB 485 (1999), a measure to prevent sex offenders from earning early release [3], he failed to protect schools and houses of worship from sex shops being established close by [3], [4].

Obama voted no to prohibit taking minors across State lines in circumvention of laws requiring the involvement of parents in abortion decisions, including knowingly transporting a minor across state lines to get an abortion after committing incest with a minor. [5]

Obama enjoys a record that unravels traditional and sound values, measures that if successful will harm the most vulnerable among us; no wonder why Obama was able to, with ease and poise, joke about the Special Olympics.[6]

The University of Notre Dame’s invitation to Barack Obama caught the attention of many Catholics. The Cardinal Newman Society wrote a letter to Notre Dame's president, Rev. John I. Jenkins and established an online petition against Obama’s appearance.

“It is an outrage and a scandal that “Our Lady’s University,” one of the premier Catholic universities in the United States, would bestow such an honor on President Obama given his clear support for policies and laws that directly contradict fundamental Catholic teachings on life and marriage.”- The Cardinal Newman Society.

Follow the link to read the entire letter and to sign the petition, Petition to Fr. Jenkins.

The bishop for the Ft. Wayne/South Bend diocese said Tuesday he is boycotting the university's graduation ceremony. Bishop John D'Arcy said his decision "is not an attack on anyone, but is in defense of the truth about human life."

"This will be the 25th Notre Dame graduation during my time as bishop. After much prayer, I have decided not to attend the graduation. I wish no disrespect to our president; I pray for him and wish him well. I have always revered the Office of the Presidency, but a bishop must teach the Catholic faith in season and out of season and he teaches not only by his words - but by his actions." [7]

Is this response over the top or is there validity in a sense of outrage and scandal for a Catholic University to bestow such honor upon Barack Obama? What say you Christians, do you share a similar sentiment or does relativism permeate your religiosity? Perhaps, allowing ones political ideology to trump their Christianity is acceptable in this environment of moral relativism.

The Real March Madness 2009

By Tony Vega

March madness is a term commonly used to describe the NCAA basketball championship tournament. Welcome to 2009, folks, where the real March madness can be found in Washington D.C; no, not as a result of the American Eagles basketball team, but as a result of Barack Obama's inept DC political team.

As your neighbors are losing their homes and jobs, not necessarily in that order, Barack Obama is putting on performances on late night TV inappropriately giggling about bowling scores. We should not begrudge our leaders their outlets, world leaders should be able to step back in order to re-energize and focus on pressing world issues.

Is the American president able to focus on the one issue that catapulted him into office, the economy? It doesn't appear Barack Obama is able to do that particularly with appointments such as Timothy Geithner and other irresponsible decisions.

As our economy is going the way of the Titanic, our president is making on air predictions for the NCAA basketball bracket; talk about March Madness. During sound times, NCAA predictions may be a light moment. However, when Barack Obama miscalculates the national deficit by 2.3 trillion dollars in the middle of a crisis, he cannot afford such leisure as college basketball predictions.

Barack Obama underestimated, in honor of presidential goofs perhaps that should be misunderestimated, his deficit increasing tactics by 2.3 trillion dollars. According to the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office (CBO) Barack Obama's policies will create a 9.27 trillion dollar hole, $2.3 trillion more than Obama indicated.

Folks, the little Obamanomic miscalculation translates to more that a trillion-dollars a year, every year for nearly a decade. Who is doing the math in his team? Perhaps, it is the person hired to do so; our favorite tax cheat and self-proclaimed incompetent accountant Timothy F. Geithner. Hey mister can you spare a dime? This is the change you were promised, spare change.

Keeping with the spirit of madness are the misguided antics of many of our fellow citizens by aiming their outrage at the families including children of the AIG executives. Rich welfare recipients should indeed spur outrage, but folks, the target of that outrage should be the clowns that allowed it.

Those clowns can be found in the DC team that is tanking our economy, AIG is merely a straw among many that will break our backs. The top politicians that are complicit are prominently displayed. Namely, Senators Barney Frank and Chris Dodd, Treasury Secretary Geithner, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, Chuck Schumer and many more.

Some of those named started long before Barack Obama benefited from the side effects of Bush Derangement Syndrome, but all are emboldened and empowered since Obama took office. We can only hope that their bright spark will soon burn out.

President Obama’s on the job training has brought us back to pre-9/11 safety standards and promised our children a future devoid of national prosperity. In addition to creating OJ like trials for enemy combatants, oh I forgot the Obama team doesn’t want to offend our enemies and the term “enemy combatant” is not allowed.

More March madness is Barack Obama’s home video of him utilizing his Farsi and genuflecting to the Mullahs of Iran wishing them a Happy Nowruz. Can it get any worse than this? Yes it can! Does anyone remember the Great Depression, the Day of Infamy, the tragic events of 9/11/01?

Are we a nation of cowards? Screaming at the kids of welfare recipients created by our government is not the answer to such egregious flaws and corruption by government officials. Teflon Obama is enjoying his popularity at the expense of your grandkids' future. March Madness will continue far into the November years.
