Young Obama pot smoking choom gang

In his 1995 memoir “Dreams of My Father,” Obama writes about smoking pot almost like Dr. Seuss wrote about eating green eggs and ham. As a high school kid, Obama wrote, he would smoke “in a white classmate’s sparkling new van,” he would smoke “in the dorm room of some brother” and he would smoke “on the beach with a couple of Hawaiian kids.”

He would smoke it here and there. He would smoke it anywhere.

Obama speaks doom and gloom to Joplin graduating class

He has gone from hope and change to this::

As you begin the next stage in your journey, wherever you’re going, whatever you’re doing, it’s safe to say you will encounter greed and selfishness, and ignorance and cruelty, sometimes just bad luck. You’ll meet people who try to build themselves up by tearing others down. You’ll meet people who believe that looking after others is only for suckers.

His entire speech was not that depressing, but the fact thst he made such a statement as that to a high school graduating class is just unbelievable, and disturbing to know that he is our president.

Now watch the video below.  Rush Limbaugh in Joplin, Mo. on Independence Day 2011, a little over a month after the tornado.  Now this is what America is all about.  

Rush also donated $100,000 to the Joplin relief fund.

What a contrast, huh?

Preventive Service Task Force recommends no screening for prostate cancer

A prominent U.S. government advisory panel is recommending that men of all ages no longer be screened for prostate cancer by undergoing the prostate-specific antigen (PSA) blood test.

The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force, an independent group of medical experts in prevention and evidence-based medicine, said PSA screening results in overdiagnosis of prostate cancer and unnecessary treatment that can leave men impotent or incontinent.

Basing its recommendation mainly on two major trials of PSA testing in asymptomatic men in the United States and Europe, the task force concluded screening may only help one man in every 1,000 to avoid dying from prostate cancer.

Well, that’s a relief, only one in a thousand.  That is, unless you are the one that could have been saved.  It’s not the PSA screening that has all these side effects, but the surgery, right?  Those who oppose this say that the PSA is the only effective tool for early detection.   This panel is recommending that men of all ages no longer  be tested. 

The way this is written, it sounds like all these dire side effects are the result of the test.  There should be no side effects to a blood test.

This is the same panel that rejected regular mammograms for women in their 40s.

Rationing?  You betcha’.

The question is who and what is this panel making these recommendations?  Well, even though they are said to be “independent,” they are funded, staffed, and appointed by the HHS (under the direction of “she who sitteth upon many waters,” apostate Kathleen Sebelius.)

The task force (USPSTF), a panel of primary care physicians and epidemiologists, is funded, staffed, and appointed by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality

Obama campaign hires Faith Vote Director

President Obama’s re-election campaign has tapped a 23-year-old [just turned 24] executive assistant in the White House faith-based office to head up its outreach to religious communities.

Michael R. Wear, who has worked in the White House for the past three and half years, will move to Chicago to become the campaign’s Faith Vote director next week, White House officials confirmed on Monday.

“It has been an honor working with Michael Wear to create positive faith-based and nonprofit partnerships to serve people in need,” said Joshua DuBois, executive director of the Office of Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships. Wear was DuBois’ executive assistant. (CT profiled then 26-year-old DuBois in 2009)
A native of Buffalo, N.Y., Wear was an intern during Obama’s 2008 campaign, specializing in outreach to religious groups. He helped arrange candidate Obama’s appearance at a presidential forum at Rick Warren’s Saddleback Church in California as well as a meeting between Obama and prominent Christian leaders in Chicago. http://blog.christianitytoday.com/ctpolitics/2012/05/obama_campaign_2.html

A faith vote director?  Who is running this campaign?  Pardon me for laughing.  I think it’s just “brilliant” to hire a 24 year old boy, an ex-Catholic, who worships at National Community Church, a non-denominational “evangelical style” church, to capture the Catholic vote and the rest of the “faith vote.”

“Michael has spent a number of years in the faith-based office so he knows the territory,” said Amy Sullivan, author of “The Party Faithful,” a book on religion and American politics. “But the Republicans would put somebody senior with years and years of experience and a big Rolodex in that position. And I guess that tells you something about how Democrats still view faith outreach and its importance.”

Maybe Amy is speaking out of school, but I hope Michael will consult with her on how to “reach out.”  The democrats are so precious, aren’t they?

Although he has been at the white house since he was about 19 or younger, he will now be moving to Chicago to begin his duties to get out the faith vote.

Right into the lions den.

If he is a sincere young man and truly a man of faith, I hope he runs, not walks, out of this situation as fast as he can.  It’s not worth it, Michael.

More facts and documents in the Martin/Zman case

I found more raw documents in the case.  This link contains police reports, witness statements, ballistics, toxicology, and DNA results.

http://www.docstoc.com/docs/120698339/Florida-v-George-Zimmerman—Evidence-released-to-public-May-17_-2012

A few highlights:

  • THC 1.5 ng/mL
  • THC-COOH (Carboxy) 7.3 ng/mL

FDLE Report:

Trayvon was wearing

  • One light grey Nike sweatshirt
  • One dark grey Fruit of the Loom hooded sweatshirt
  • “Each sweatshirt displays a hole located in the upper left chest area. The areas around these holes were microscopically examined and chemically processed for the presence of gunshot residues  Both holes display residues and physical effects consistent with a contact shot.”

Like I mentioned in the previous post, Lawrence Kobilinsky said the Medical Examiner’s autopsy, which says “intermediate”, 1 to 18 inches would trump the FDLE ballistics report above.  But in a way they are both saying the same thing, one saying “contact” the other saying as close as 1 inch.  (Even though he whipped out a measuring stick to indicate just how “far” 18 inches could be…..)  Then they showed a diagram showing them both standing up with Zimmerman pointing the gun to further muddy the waters, even though by all accounts they were both on the ground, with one witness saying Martin was on top, straddling Zman and hitting him “MMA.”

The report of “bloody knuckles,” though, is not right.  There was an abrasion on Trayvon’s left ring finger 1/4 x 1/8 inch and doesn’t qualify as bloody knuckles. (I heard somebody say it was 1/4 x 8 inches.  Honestly, they just get on and blabber on and I don’t think some of these “experts” have even read the reports.)   The illustrative diagram also clearly shows that it is not very big.

The media is/are so shameless in their deceptions.

They don’t want to let go of their narrative.  And some accounts are clinging to the “it could have been avoided if Zimmerman had not gotten out of the truck.”  Well, of course, it could have, but it could have been avoided if he had not gotten into the truck in the first place, if he had not gotten up that morning, and if Trayvon had stayed in his apartment and not gone to the store.  That might sound good on tv but it won’t stand up in court.

They report said it could not be determined whose voice it was yelling for help.

There was blood, his own blood, on Zman’s shirt, I believe it was bout 16 stains that tested positive for blood.

A lot still remains to be cleared up.

P. S.:  Something just occurred to me.  I doubt these documents have addresses, but I am wondering if Trayvon Martin actually lived in this community.  It has been assumed or indicated that he did, but he was shot on the 26th but did not have any identification on him.  It was the 28th before his father identified him.  If there is a person killed on the grounds of your community and there’s police, et cetera, there for hours if not days investigating and questioning witnesses, you would think his father would have known right away it was his son.  Just a thought…..It would be relevant whether he lived there or not.

Debt crisis looms again

August 2, 2011, Obama signed the law allowing the federal debt ceiling be raised from $14.3 trillion dollars to $16.7 trillion dollars.

This is less than a month later, August 30, 2011, and the debt is increasing so fast you can’t even write it down.

Won’t be long before it reaches $16 trillion and they will want to raise it again.  That’s guaranteed.

According the CNN, this was supposed to extend to 2013 beyond the 2012 election.

Here’s a recap of how that went down in summer of 2011:http://www.npr.org/2011/08/02/138916516/senate-takes-up-debt-limit-bill-passage-likely

Well, in less than a year, that $2 trillion has been borrowed and spent and we are now up against the ceiling once more.

The national debt now exceeds GDP.

The debt is over $50,000 per citizen.

The obama has said he will not tolerate another fight to reduce spending that the republicans waged in 2011.  I think he wants to “tax the rich.”  Where did I get that idea?

Some calculations have been made that if you take every dime from every person and family with adjusted gross income of over a million dollars, it would run the government for about 100 days.

The obama submitted a budget that was so irresponsible it was just voted down in the congress with 0 votes – that’s Zero votes – because not even one democrat was willing to attach their name to it.

The Senate has not submitted a budget in over 3 years, which is required by law every year.

The republicn House of Representatives has submitted to the Senate 2 or three budget plans to cut spending and balance the budget, yet,

“Democrats controlling the Senate rejected for the second year in a row Wednesday a budget plan passed by House Republicans.”

That’s Wednesday, 5.16.12.

And further, you will hear the democrats and the president whining on about how it is republicans who are the problem.

And the corrupt media will serve as their mouthpiece, repeating whatever they are told to say.

Copy of autopsy provides important facts in George Zimmerman, Trayvon Martin case Update2

Trayvon Martin autopsy:

71 inches, 158 pounds.

Wound directly front to back with no exit

Soot, ring abrasion and 2×2 inch stippling around wound

Cause of Death:  Gunshot wound

Manner of Death:  Homicide

From a news report, it was reported toxicology showed marijuana, but I haven’t seen a toxicology report.

Note:  I keep hearing and reading about the shot being at a 1 to 18 inch distance.  Where did that come from?  I am unable to find any mention of 1 – 18 inches in the report.  The range is described as “intermediate.”  I thought, well, maybe the term intermediate refers to a 1 to 18 inch distance, but, if so, then what would be a close range? Update2: Now I know where it came from. Lawrence Kobilinsky, forensics examiner, describes a close range as 1 – 6 inches and intermediate range as 1 – 18 inches.  Either way it can be as close as 1 inch. Logically, it should be 6 – 18 inches, it seems to me.  A ballistic report indicates a “contact” wound.  Kobilinsky says the autopsy trumps the ballistics.   But he does not mention the soot and the stippling!  What I would like to ask him is what range is indicated by the 2×2 inch stippling.  So this is misleading not to mention that.  They obviously have read the same autopsy report I read so they HAVE to know it’s in there.  Funny how they are leaving this out.  (You can tell I’m detail oriented, but it is the details that ultimately get to the truth.)

Quote from report:

“The entrance wound is located on the left chest, 17-1/2 below the top of the head, 1 inch to the left of the anterior midline, and 1/2 inch below the nipple.  It consists of 3/8 inch diameter round entrance defect with soot, ring abrasion, and a 2 x 2 inch area of stippling.This wound is consistent with a wound of entrance of intermediate range.”

http://i2.cdn.turner.com/cnn/2012/images/05/17/trayvon.martin.autopsy.pdf

A medical report from George Zimmerman’s doctor, which I have not seen, reportedly says the next day he had two black eyes, a fractured nose, and two lacerations on the back of the head and an injured back.

All the hoop-la from the media putting out inflammatory lies or half-truths, they should be ashamed.  The president should be ashamed for reving up the frenzy, but that is what he does.

I heard Trayvon Martin’s attorney say that all they ever wanted was for Zimmerman to be arrested.  Well, they got what they wanted.  Now will they let the legal process play out and accept whatever the result may be?  We’ll see.
