There ARE some things you can blame on Mr Obama…

But this ain't one of them. I mean, Gitmo is still open, torture is still happening, the murderous God-damned wars for profit are still happening.... and he hasn't managed to fix 30 years worth of pure destructive "trickle down free market" economic policies which favor only people willing and able to loot other peoples' treasuries. But according to Right Wing bullshit-monger The Daily Caller, there's a massive increase, (not true, the figure is less than half a percentage point) in pedestrian deaths. And that Michelle Obama is at fault because she encouraged kids to get out from in front of the TV and go for walks, exercise, do things for which the human body is geared. The "Debating" points... as reported at HuffPo: Slight Uptick In Pedestrian Deaths Is Apparently Michelle Obama's Fault Jason Linkins jason@huffingtonpost.com As Ashley Halsey III, in the Washington Post, reports: It is the kind risk teenagers take: darting across six lanes of traffic, paying no mind to the flashing sign warning pedestrians to await the green light. Wayne Cuffy and his buddies bolted across Landover Road on their way to the mall Tuesday night, a mistake that cost the 15-year-old his life when he stepped in front of a Ford Expedition at Dodge Park Road. A terrible tragedy, to be sure, one that figures into new statistics from the Governor's Highway Safety Administration, which finds that pedestrian deaths ticked upwards by a teensy 0.4 percent in 2010. And all of those deaths could have been prevented if only Michelle Obama hadn't been encouraging Wayne Cuffy and his buddies to get out there and start exercising, right? The Daily Caller is pretty sure they have this all figured out, anyway: Pedestrian deaths increased sharply during the first half of 2010, according to the Governors Highway Safety Association (GHSA). The reason may be First Lady Michelle Obama and her "Let's Move" campaign. That's right! While an intelligent read of everyone else's reporting on the slight uptick in pedestrian deaths might lead you to conclude that more pedestrians are distracted by their iPods and smart-phones, or that pedestrians are growing more aggressive, The Daily Caller's Amanda Carey is pretty sure that this is all being caused by that time Michelle Obama urged children, "Let's Move!" as though she meant, "Let's move right in front of some moving cars!" Carey basically echoes this piece from the Washington Examiner, in which the executive director of GHSA discusses the extent to which Michelle Obama is to blame for people dying in the streets in a way that I would term "highly equivocal": GHSA executive director Barbara Harsha said her organization doesn't know why there were more deaths in the first six months of 2010 than in 2009, but the increase is notable because overall traffic fatalities went down 8 percent during this period, and the increase ends four straight years of steady declines in pedestrian deaths. But the "get moving" movement, led by Obama's "Let's Move" campaign to eliminate childhood obesity, could be to blame, Harsha

R W Lunartic fringe and the Lunar Year

One would think that people who claim to be very pro-Israel (long as them thar jewboys don't get too uppity) would at least know when the High Holy Days are. Glenn Beck, for instance, Breitbart, Fox News, all of them claiming a victory for Right Wing Lunatic Fringe politics and policies because the Israeli delegation wasn't at the U.N. on one of the days, Sukkot. These are the leaders of the same fringe groups who tried to make meat of the end of Ramadan being the day before September 11th this year, difference, their Adult Handlers noticed it so there weren't any Hysterical Shrieks about "Muslim Triumphalists dancing in streets on 9/11!!!" And MOST of them have dropped their ridiculous pointed slur that Barack must be an exclusively Muslim messianic name... in the face of some people replying to the their Jackass Statements with the notation that one of THE Judges, from the Book by the same name in the Old Testament, was named Barak (although today he would be described as an Unlawful Combatant and Terrorist) and the Israeli Defense minister is named Ehud Barak. One of their "oopsie" moments, one of several (hundred) (thousand) (hundreds of thousands) similar Oopsies. I'm thinking, here, that it's a massive failure of Private Education and Hoam Skewl and no, their Pastors don't know a thing about their own religious beliefs either. Oh, and these are the same Dangerously Inbred Cretins who call us Ignorant Morons because we don't share their vision of English Americans as "The New Jerusalem", don't call for the destruction of Israel in order to usher in the End of Days or other Semitic Anti-Semitism crap-ola. "Stand with Israel" except they want the Jewish people to be (almost) completely wiped out.

Bibi is NOT Israel, revisited.

The Israeli Knesset is debating a bill proposed by David Rotem of the extreme right Yisrael Beiteinu party that would require all Israeli citizens to swear loyalty to Israel as a “Jewish and democratic state.” This bill is targeted at increasing pressure on the twenty percent of Israelis who are Palestinian citizens while forcing the ultra Orthodox Jewish minority who reject the legitimacy of any state not based on Jewish biblical law to accept Zionism. If passed in its proposed form, citizens unwilling to take the loyalty oath would be at risk of losing citizenship I wrote an article about a year ago, I think, titled "Bibi is NOT Israel!" but the title was in Hebrew. The Modern State of Israel uses Judaism the way George Bush uses Christianity, a prop, only that and nothing more, quoth the Raving, nevermore.. and yeah, I deliberately mangled the line from Poe. Zionism is at most a sect of Judaism, so in fact are any Christian sects. In fact, when Judah split off from Israel while Solomon lay dying, it was done on a sectarian level equal to England and the Vatican. Bibi courts some reactionary extremists who are pushing him as a Jewish Pope, who would imagine? Other than the Zionist faction is more secular than sectarian... And the absence of a "Unified Judaism" doesn't seem to have wiped out Judah in the past 3500 years, so why the new Anti-Semitic actions from people claiming to represent Israel, the people, in the form of Israel the state? Bibi can no more claim to represent Judaism than the Pope could. Either the people or the faith. When I looked up the Hebrew spelling of the last post, that Bibi is not Israel, I also tried and gave up after a few moments (I had a headache, the soup was boiling over, the dog ate my homework, whatever) but I stumbled across some sectarian Messianic as in "Jewish to Christian Convert" website claiming that Netanyahu is a Messianic name. Which could be and probably is exploited in Israeli politics when dealing with people who are sectarian. This is like the term "under God" being placed into the Pledge of Allegiance to try to overcome LEGITIMATE sectarian concerns, by Christian Groups and JEWISH groups, over the Idolatrous worship of the State embodied in the rest of the pledge. These groups are, now, commonly dismissed as being "Not REAL Christians" by the same groups, like the TeaBags and RepubliKlan Party as being "Not REAL Americans". Arbitrarily because we don't share the Fascist Agenda so common in such groups. Or Plutocratic. The way of saluting the flag during the Pledge was changed at the same time, due to political expediency, from the Roman Right-hand-extended forward salute, known as the Bellamy Salute, to the Roman hand-over-heart salute, equally a salute to the power of the state, worshiped as a god. The other two are a (now) Military Salute and one used when invoking the name of any god while taking an oath, all
