The "King of Pop" is dead at 50

.. and I could care less.

If my Christian friends will excuse me for a moment-

- if there's ANYTHING to the Christian Mythos, I hope that it's the whole "burn forever if you're a sinner" bit.

Because that sonofabitch child molester is surely burning right now, and that makes me VERY happy.

Let's see you buy off THAT jury, "King".

I wouldn't be surprised to see them try to get him laid in state in the Capitol Rotunda.

Dear Friend,

Last week, I announced United We Serve – a nationwide call to service challenging you and all Americans to volunteer this summer and be part of building a new foundation for America.

And when I say “all,” I mean everyone – young and old, from every background, all across the country. We need individuals, community organizations, corporations, foundations, and our government to be part of this effort.

Today, for the official kick off of United We Serve, members of my administration have fanned out across America to participate in service events and encourage all Americans to join them.

The First Lady is rolling up her sleeves and getting to work too. But before she headed out today, she asked me to share this message with you.

Our nation faces some of the greatest challenges it has in generations and we know it’s going to take a lot of hard work to get us back on track.

While Michelle and I are calling on every American to participate in United We Serve, the call to service doesn’t end this fall. We need to stay involved in our towns and communities for a long time to come. After all, America’s new foundation will be built one neighborhood at a time – and that starts with you.

Thank you,
President Barack Obama

Got that in my email inbox the other day.

On Gmail, no less- interesting, that- they by and large supported Obama in the election- makes one wonder how they got my email address, since I have NEVER emailed the Whte House, and especially not from that address.

Don't know about you, comrade, but it makes me want to go grab a shovel and get to work. (Note my SEVERELY dubious smirk)

Guaran-dam-tee if the Bush White House had done this, the Leftards would have been all over it. But we won't hear a peep from them-- it's their rock star, Barack Hussein.

EDIT to add: if I were to use my government email account to send an email supporting a candidate or his policies, I'd be in SEVERE trouble. How is it different when it's the POTUS? IT's not HIS network, and I goddamn sure as hell didn't ASK to receive his propaganda...

There's strange... and there's ARMY strange...

- and now for something completely different...

Just ran across DeltaBravoSierra, a webcomic loosely based upon the cartoonist's experiences in the military...


(I'm assuming the artist won't mind, as I'm linking to and promoting his site. I get nothing out of this, folks, just sharing. Author: if you mind, pipe up!)

This one's gonna be linked to as a cartoon feed on the main page if I ever figure out how to do so!

Footage from the ground in Tehran...

Hattip to Breda over at Bredafallacy.....

Can't stop the signal

Personally I don't hold much hope for them-- but they're *trying*.

The other bloke that's running for election isn't much better-- after all, everyone that ran for election had to be given the nod by the Revolutionary Council (or whatever they're calling it in Iran)- point is, they're not exactly going to let some true freedom-loving antithesis to the present jackass that's running the show there, oppose said jackass.

But, you know-- it's a start.

What shames me is that if the same situation were to happen here in the US I don't know that I could expect my countrymen to stand up for what's right. After all- there's stuff to watch on the boob tube!
