The Golf Address
New York Times, by Maureen Dowd

Original Article

Posted By:mitzi, 8/23/2014 9:18:52 PM

FORE! Score? And seven trillion rounds ago, our forecaddies brought forth on this continent a new playground, conceived by Robert Trent Jones, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal when it comes to spending as much time on the links as possible — even when it seems totally inappropriate, like moments after making a solemn statement condemning the grisly murder of a 40-year-old American journalist beheaded by ISIL. I know reporters didn’t get a chance to ask questions, but I had to bounce. I had a 1 p.m. tee time at Vineyard Golf Club with Alonzo

Read the comments and be completely discouraged about the intelligence of the voters of this country. They seem to think that being president means working a 35-hour work week, or less. He needs his vacation even when the country and the world are in the middle of a collapse all around him. He´s tired, poor little boy.

Let´s be clear, Maureen. You know your precious Lightbringer, who you´ve been so exquisitely moist in the nether regions about, has been an embarrassment from day 1 when he botched his oath of office in 2009. A real, undeniable, historic embarrassment. You´ve wanted him to occupy the Oval Office not in spite of the embarrassment but specifically because of it: Lightbringer´s hotpink-neon unqualifications for the presidency make America look bad - which is the entire point for you "progressives": getting your revenge at the big, bad USA. So now, after years of intentionally lying about the Hopenchange Charades, you claim he´s making you blush over some golf? Really?

We´d only like to know how much did you-know-who´s campaign commission you for this piece? or is the entire NYT now on board to make sure a certain Smart Woman will use her time baking cookies instead of putting bogies?

As they say about all the others who are slowly opening their eyes, better late than never. This column will surely get the notice of the White House. It has just the right amount of irreverence combined with some near-racist overtones. Somebody will read it to the Fraud-in-Chief and he will be properly miffed.

But none of it is all that attention-getting any longer. Ear Leader is certifiably insane, with multiple mental malfunctions. His bizarre behavior would be nothing more than an interesting case study if he didn´t have his black fingers all over the nuclear football.

Agree #6. The liberal bitter clingers cannot let go of the myth that Obama was to them. The visual of Obama pretending to be brokenhearted about anyone´s tragedy besides his own petty whining then heading immediately to the golf course yucking it up on camera with his butt kissing toadies goes down in history as the sum total of his so-called Presidency.

Guess I´m in a minority. Didn´t think this was funny or clever. The column besmirches one of the finest eulogies of our nation and approaches plagiarism at the least.
A back-handed slap to the country at best, and nothing we didn´t already know about the sorry subject.

We should also take a moment to recognize the members of the US military who pay for Obama and his buddies who take free rounds on military courses that are run on non appropriated funds which come from service welfare and recreation funds that come military exchange profits. Every dollar spend on Obama ´s golfing is one less dollar spent on troop recreation . Also when Barry and his pals play on a military course our servicemembers are denied access to the course.

If he got his mind right tomorrow, she´d be back on her calloused knees again.

That said, this is good, but had she been less funny and a tad more serious about him, it could have been a great piece.

Now we are engaged in a great civil divide in Ferguson, which does not even have a golf course, and that’s why I had a “logistical” issue with going there. We are testing whether that community, or any community so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure when the nation’s leader wants nothing more than to sink a birdie putt.

It´s pretty clear now that even liberals are on to O´s careless presidency and worse, to his pathetic persona. They are getting wise to the fact that the country is in a bad place, existentially, than it´s ever been, even during the Great Depression or the Cuban Missile Crisis.

Clever as MoDo´s piece is, she spared him the grief he deserves for placing America in the degraded ranks of being just one country among many, no different, no better. That was his goal and now it is realized. He can play golf with a clear...

....schedule.

Nicely done, Ms. MoDo! St. Thomas More said: “The devil … that proud spirit … cannot endure to be mocked.” And the same goes for the devil´s servant Obama. Maureen is about five and a half years too late, but better now than never. This pathetic character (who could take Mickey Mouse´s place on the watch face) ought to be mocked clear off the earth´s surface.

FTA: We are testing whether that community, or any community so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure when the nation’s leader wants nothing more than to sink a birdie putt.

With that powerless powder-puff uncoordinated move--he has two left hands and two left feet--Obama doesn´t have to worry too much about making any birdies. He hasn´t any athletic ability at all. (Or any other type of obvious ability, for that matter.) You´d have thought that any son of Frank Marshall Davis would have inherited the ability to hit a small white ball, dribble and shoot a larger orange ball, or shove a convenience store manager right over a rack of Jack Links Beef Jerky sticks, but alas....

Very well done. I don´t have any problem with her using the Gettysburg Address as the template for her satire ridiculing Obama. Actually, I think this is more stinging than if her criticism was simply a negative piece on Obama´s appreciation of Presidential perks and ennui regarding the duties.

Not bad, Maureen! You forgot the famous passage in there about how the US citizens fought each other in a bloody Civil War...fighting to the death to free up our victorious fellow liberal Americans to use the IRS and other federal agencies to spy upon, publically broadcast private information, and destroy fellow conservative citizens with whom they disagree with politically. I believe that ´truth´ became apparent sometime during the 9th hole.

FWIW There may be no golf courses in Ferguson but some venerable clubs are as good as next door. Normandie Golf Course claims to be the oldest course west of the Mississippi, designed by a Scottish emigre who honed his craft under Young Tom Morris. With Ferguson to one side and the pitiable and deadly Wellston to the other, one of my favorite area courses has not seen my company in some years. Nor will it soon, very sad for me.

Silly column. In fact offensive, especially since libs like Dowd ignored ALL the evidence readily available in 2008. Instead they chose to project their own hope, change and liberal white guilt upon this clown. So now six years later they´re having in turn their own belated epiphanies. And giving us these intellectual games and clever columns as some kind of mea culpa and penance??? They make me sick.

Maureen, you and your dangerously duped lefty buddies in the news media need to each in turn tell us plainly, ´´I screwed up, big time. I am sorry a was a significant factor in installing this empty charlatan in the WH. How could I have been so blind and stupid.´´

Please give us THAT column, Maureen, and save us the cutsy, insulting columns like this useless tripe.

Poll: Fewer Than One Third of Americans
View Obama as Friendly to Religion
Breitbart Big Government, by Thomas D. Williams, Ph.D.    Original Article
Posted By: mitzi- 9/22/2014 11:45:59 PM     Post Reply
Some 70% of Americans do not designate the Obama administration as friendly toward religion, according to a Pew poll released Monday. The share of Americans that sees the Obama administration as friendly toward religion took a dramatic drop to 30% from 37% in 2009. The percentage that rates the administration hostile to religion increased from 17% in 2009 to 29% in the latest poll. These findings come from a new survey by the Pew Research Center, conducted Sept. 2-9 among 2,002 U.S. adults. Some of this suspicion of Obama seems related to the administration’s perceived hostility toward religious liberty, manifested

Half of Americans Believe Gay Sex Is a Sin

This has been a big year for gay rights in America. In state after state, either judges or voters have affirmed the constitutionality of same-sex marriage, and public support for gay unions reached an all-time high. But there´s still a tension between the acknowledgement of gay rights and the acceptance of gayness itself. A new Pew poll on religion in public life found that exactly half of respondents said they consider "homosexual behavior" sinful, a five-percentage-point increase since May 2013. This view is most prominent among white evangelicals and black protestants; more than three-quarters of each group said they see

Hundreds of Catholic protestors prayed and sang outside a satanic “black mass” held in a small theater in the Civic Center in Oklahoma City on Sunday, while only 42 ticket holders showed up to attend the event inside. As NewsOK reports, about 1,600 Roman Catholics gathered Sunday afternoon to bear witness to their Christian faith, 1,200 of them crowded into the sanctuary, gym, and cafeteria at St. Francis of Assisi Church for a holy hour prayer service convened by Archbishop Paul S. Coakley. About 400 more gathered outside the church to listen to the service through speakers set up outside.

At a news conference last week, Rep. Chris Smith (R-N.J.) called President Obama´s promise that no taxpayer dollars would be used to fund abortions under Obamacare, "the biggest lie in 2014." Smith, speaking on a new GAO report that indicated public funding of abortion, said, "The president issued an executive order on March 24, 2010 and it said: ‘the Act maintains current Hyde Amendment restrictions governing abortion policy and extends those restrictions to newly created health insurance exchanges. It turns out that those promises made both on the floor of the House and in the president´s executive order are

Study links changing
winds to warming in Pacific
Associated Press, by Jeff Barnard    Original Article

A new study released Monday found that warming temperatures in Pacific Ocean waters off the coast of North America over the past century closely followed natural changes in the wind, not increases in greenhouse gases related to global warming. The study compared ocean surface temperatures from 1900 to 2012 to surface air pressure, a stand-in for wind measurements, and found a close match. "What we found was the somewhat surprising degree to which the winds can explain all the wiggles in the temperature curve," said lead author Jim Johnstone, who did the work while a climatologist at the Joint Institute

Learning of a refugee flood, John Stanmeyer went to the border. At least 66,000 Syrian Kurds streamed into Turkey on Saturday, fleeing the latest advances of the Islamic State—the violent Sunni group that has declared a caliphate in parts of Syria and Iraq—as it moved further north in a bid to extend territorial control. The militants’ onslaught left as many as 40 towns and villages in northern Syria, including the border city of Ayn al-Arab, called Kobani in Kurdish, virtually empty, as thousands of men, women and children sought safety. Turkey has received more than 1.2 million Syrian refugees since

According to China’s state-media, two were killed and many more injured on Sunday when Uyghur Islamic radicals bombed an area in the country’s western region of Xinjiang, Reuters reports. The state-press report added that hundreds of innocent Chinese citizens have been killed over the past year. The report was short on many details. “At present, all the injured have been sent to hospital for full treatment, local social order is normal, and the cases are being investigated,” the report said. The alleged terror attacks comes following an announcement over the weekend that China is holding responsible seventeen police officials

Ransom: Dems sold top House positions

House Democrats, panicked after Newt Gingrich and the GOP shocked Washington by winning the House in 1994, became so obsessed with raising money to take back the chamber they even sold off top leadership jobs, according to a longtime Democratic fundraiser. In an explosive book out next month, Lindsay Mark Lewis said that former House Minority Leader Dick Gephardt’s team set a price of $100,000 to be the top Democrat on every House committee, $100,000 on a trade deal and $200,000 for a tax proposal to be considered by the House Ways and Means Committee. They also demanded that members

Employers won’t hire her. She’s been berated with epithets like “dirty Jew.” Federal agents have guarded her house because of death threats. And she’s spent hundreds of thousands of dollars defending herself against accusations she orchestrated a coverup in a scandal that has come to represent everything Americans hate about the IRS. Lois Lerner is toxic — and she knows it. But she refuses to recede into anonymity or beg for forgiveness for her role in the IRS tea party-targeting scandal. “I didn’t do anything wrong,” Lerner said in her first press interview since the scandal broke 16 months ago. “I’m

The former Vice President candidate hailed her child as a ´straight shooter´ in a Facebook which appears to be her first veiled reference to the fight two weekends ago. The 23-year-old is said to have repeatedly hit the owner of a home in Anchorage, Alaska, during an outburst in which her brother Track broke four ribs and her father Todd was left with a bloody nose. (Tweet) It came after Willow Palin´s ex-boyfriend allegedly engage in some

The United Nations Climate Summit will begin in New York this Tuesday, but environmental activists didn’t wait. All day Sunday, they filled the streets of Manhattan for a march that featured Al Gore, New York City mayor Bill de Blasio, and various Hollywood actors. But they certainly didn’t act like a movement that was winning. There was a tone of fatalism in the comments of many with whom I spoke; they despair that the kind of radical change they advocate probably won’t result from the normal democratic process. It’s no surprise then that the rhetoric of climate-change activists has become increasingly

Camp Edwards - Police and military officials are searching for three officers from the Afghanistan National Army who were engaged in a training exercise at Joint Base Cape Cod. Massachusetts National Guard spokesman Lt. Col. James Sahady said the three men were reported missing on Saturday night after travelling into Hyannis that day. “They didn´t report back (to the base),” Sahady said. “There is no indication they pose a threat to the public.” Police and base officials are cooperating in the search for the three men, identified as Maj. Jan Mohammad Arash, Capt. Mohammad Nasir Askarzada, and Capt. Noorullah Aminyar.

He was a leading figure in one of the biggest climate change marches to date. But it seems Robert F Kennedy Jr was not so forthcoming when it came to questions about his own carbon footprint. Confronted by a reporter asking if he would give up his phone and car, the environmental lawyer became visibly irate before grabbing the microphone and accusing her of ´destroying democracy´ as a member of the press. The interview in New York yesterday afternoon started with a conversation about the number of flyers produced for the event, which Kennedy Jr claimed was necessary to garner ´people power´.

Note: Read the Hillary Clinton-Saul Alinsky Letters here. Previously unpublished correspondence between Hillary Clinton and the late left-wing organizer Saul Alinsky reveal new details about her relationship with the controversial Chicago activist and shed light on her early ideological development. Clinton met with Alinsky several times in 1968 while writing a Wellesley college thesis about his theory of community organizing. Clinton’s relationship with Alinsky, and her support for his philosophy, continued for several years after she entered Yale law school in 1969, two letters obtained by the Washington Free Beacon show. The letters obtained by the Free Beacon are part

WASHINGTON — WHEN Willie Nelson invites you to get high with him on his bus, you go. The man is the patron saint of pot, after all, and I’m the poster girl for bad pot trips. It seemed like a match made in hash heaven. When Nelson sang at the 9:30 club in D.C. one recent night, I ventured onto the Honeysuckle Rose, as his tour bus and home-away-from-home is called. I was feeling pretty shy about meeting him. The 81-year-old Redheaded Stranger is an icon, one of America’s top songwriters and, as Rolling Stone said, “a hippie’s hippie and

I know a lot of people are giddy at the prospect of Republicans taking the Senate this November, but that’s becoming less and less likely. It’s not because Democrats are rallying around a particular mission or set of candidates; it’s because Republicans and conservatives aren’t. It seems like I’m always writing on issues no one wants to hear are mistakes, such as messaging or social issues. But I don’t care. These things have to be said. If these columns are received like a gaseous cousin on a long car trip through the desert, so be it. Crack a window… If things continue on their current course, the GOP will not retake the Senate.

It was once said, “religion is designed to comfort the afflicted and to afflict the comfortable.” Jesus’ parables – short stories with moral lessons – were likewise designed to afflict, to draw us in but leave us uncomfortable. These teachings can be read as being about divine love and salvation, sure. But, their first listeners – first century Jews in Galilee and Judea – heard much more challenging messages. Only when we hear the parables as Jesus’ own audience did can we fully experience their power and find ourselves surprised and challenged today. Here are four examples of Jesus’ teachings that everybody gets wrong: 1.

The man who jumped the White House railing Sept. 19 deserves the right to live in President Barack Obama’s home, just as the president is allowing hundreds of thousands of border-jumping Central Americans to live in Americans’ homeland, says a new tongue-in-cheek petition posted at the White House website. “We urge President Obama to immediately and publicly recognize that Mr. Omar J. Gonzalez, an oppressed migrant, was merely looking for a better life when he entered the White House after going over the classist, divisive and needless fence,” says the petition, which was authored by D.A. King, founder of the Georgia-based

When Anthony Weiner’s mayoral campaign imploded last year amid new sexting revelations, the fallout buffeted his wife, longtime Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin. Clinton’s inner circle was furious with Weiner, and Abedin’s role with Hillary was said to be in doubt. “Huma has a choice to make,” New York magazine quoted a “close associate” of Abedin’s as saying. “Does she go with Anthony, or does she go with Hillary?” The magazine described Abedin as “traumatized” by the prospect of leaving the inner sanctum. One year later, Abedin’s marriage to Weiner appears intact, and her role in Hillary’s camp is secure. As Clinton’s personal chief

AUSTIN, Texas -- At an event today at the University of Texas Austin campus, Texas Governor Rick Perry reaffirmed his support of allowing illegal immigrant students to pay in-state tuition at Texas colleges and universities, while U.S. citizens from other states continue to pay higher out-of-state tuition rates. Perry made his remarks in a "One-on-One Conversation" with Texas Tribune CEO and Editor-in-Chief Evan Smith at the Texas Tribune Festival, an annual event organized by the online media outlet. Breitbart Texas made several queries to Governor Perry´s press office for comment, but as of press time,
