What's in a Word, in one which is not a Rose, if it Stinks as Offensive

"Barak Hussein Liar Obama said his father faught in WWII Barack Hussein Obama Sr. (Obama's father) Born 4/4/36 - Died 11/24/82 at the age of 46 He was 5 years old when WW II started . . ."

If, for the sake of political correctness, you cannot call this President a liar, the only appropriate word that I can think of is that the President is Delusional.  For the American populace to give him a pass for calculated statements of this genre, i.e., made confident that the public is too stupid to catch the falsehood contained therein, constitues a blatant abrogation of the responsibilities of citizenship.

In the name of anything decent in our history, this President has to go.  Re-electing President Obama is tantamount to a national political suicide.

Concerns on the Coratian Front


The Croatian portal selling the “Flirting” book,

http://www.superbookshop.net/index.php?page=book&ean=9781770676145

carries this prominent announcement on the website:

“All products on www.superbookshop.net buyer will be delivered within 25 days from receipt of order (customers within Croatian). Delivery times for overseas orders is approximately 35 days. In some cases it may be a delay in delivery.”

This does not seem to be a promising strategy for selling any product in any market.  Somebody’s got to do something about it and that somebody’s got to be me.  The something is still quite outside of my deployable arsenal of actionable options.

The Italians Have Gone Out of Stock


I wonder if I should notify the publisher about this. The Italian portal Amazon.it


featured this announcement on its page:

“Attualmente non disponibile.

Ancora non sappiamo quando l'articolo sarĂ  di nuovo disponibile.”

Translation into English:

Currently not available. Still do not know when the item will be back in stock.


To run out of the product you are supposed to be selling is no way to flourish in the marketplace.

Hubristic Exuberance

Hubristic Exuberance: A Memo to Bill O'Reilly

There is one word that most appropriately characterizes the Obama Administration: Arrogance. If one is a stickler for modifiers, the phrase would be Unbridled Arrogance. In essence, it is borne of, if not the exact equivalent to the memo headline, Hubristic Exuberance.

The underlying premise evinced in Bill O'Reilly's Factor interviews with Joe Trippi, Lanny Davis, Karl Rove and Denis Miller is demonstrably an unadulterated fallacy. It is a mistake to attribute the seeming bungling incompetence exhibited by the Attorney General Eric Holder and Presidential Press Secretary Joe Carney as stemming from not having been adequately briefed by their respective staff. The reality is far worse than that. It is that plainly and simply this administration just does not care an iota of what we the people think.

As aptly emphasized on page 202 (and several other parts therein) of my recently published book,

"We are at a crossroads when political decorum disregards well established protocols of intellectual inquiry in order to pursue and forcibly implement political agenda as demanded by ideology of the Progressives genre. The will of the governed is completely and unabashedly ignored by the ruling elite so obsessively blinded by their determination to control and lord it over the political landscape."

The list is legion to illustrate the Administration's total disregard for the will of the governed. To cite a few examples, it includes the manner with which ObamaCare (cf op cit pp 291-292 ff) was enacted into law, not to mention the very substance of the bill itself. The czaring of America is an attempt to implement policy by bureaucracies not accountable to any kind of monitoring by the governed citizens. The circumvention of congress respecting implementation of the Immigration Dream Act by the bureaucrats at ICE after the idea was summarily rejected by Congress approaches the apex of lawlessness.

Don't be fooled by the seeming clumsiness of Holder and Carney. This Administration needs to be stopped sooner than later by whatever means we can legally leverage to deploy to countermand its none too subtle subterfuge.
