A laughter a day keeps the witches away.  So, let’s laugh first. I read this somewhere, but I can’t remember where.  It’s so hilarious, I think, that I just have to share it with y’all.  It’s about the characters in that classic book and movie, “The Wizard of Oz” and their parallel resemblances to some of America’s political leaders.


Here goes . . .
George W. Bush – the Scarecrow that has no brains.

Dick Cheney – the Tin Man that has no heart.

Ms. Condi Rice – the Dorothy who has no home.

Karl Rove – the Cowardly Lion

Bill Clinton – the Blowback who gets blowed!!!

 

Har!  Har!  Har!  Okey ngarud, enough of that to keep the witches away.

 

FIFTY LIES AND COUNTING: What follows was sent to me by Jesse Farrales of Chicago, but who’s more famously known in Chicagoland as the “Debonair.”  He said this was posted on www.Politicalforum.com by “Latisha” and all the LIES here have been verified for its truthfulness by a group of his computer-savvy friends.  

 

Also, I’ve seen some of them printed in mainstream newspapers and used and re-used as background information by many mainstream columnists.  I’ve used some of them myself in my past stories.  There are 50 of them.  But since my space is limited, I couldn’t use them all. 

 

So, here goes.  Enjoy.  Get mad.  Smear feces on my photo.  I don’t care.  What I care is that my readers, and whoever I can reach in America, would know who B. HUSSEIN Obama is.

 

He said his father was a “goat herder.”  A lie.  Obama’s father was a privileged, well-educated man, who worked for the Kenyan government.

 

He said his father was a “proud freedom fighter.”  A lie.  His father was part of one of the most corrupt and violent governments Kenya has ever had.

 

He said his “grandmother has always been a Christian."  A lie.  She does her Salat prayers at 5 a.m., according to her own interviews.  Not to mention, Christianity wouldn’t allow her to have been one of the 14 wives to one man.

 

He said his name is “African Swahili.”  A lie.  His name is Arabic.  Baraka, from which his name, BARACK, was derived from, means “blessed” in that language.  The name, HUSSEIN, is also Arabic and so is the name, OBAMA.

 

He said, “I never practiced Islam.”  A lie.  He practiced it daily in his early school years.  He was registered as a Muslim and kept that faith for 31 years, until his wife, Michelle, convinced him to convert to Christianity, so he can run for office.

 

He said, “I was fluent in Indonesian.”  A lie.  Not one of his teachers said he could speak the language.

 

He said in one of his books, “An Ebony article moved me to run for office.”  A lie.  Ebony has yet to find the article that he mentioned.  It does not, and never did, exist.  He said, “A Life magazine changed my outlook in life.”  Another lie.  It does not, and never did, exist.


Editor's Note: Perhaps the tombstone of Mr. Obama's political grave can read: "Here LIES a man who never told a lie . . ." ? (With apologies to Poet-pundit Fred Burce Bunao, who penned the original inscription way back in the 1980s.)
 

He said to vote as “PRESENT” in the Illinois legislature is a “common” thing.  A lie.  It was common for him to vote ‘PRESENT.’  He had under his belt 130 NO VOTES when he served as a state senator in Illinois.

 

He said, “I passed 900 bills in the State Senate.”  A lie.  He passed 26 bills, most of which, he did not write, but handed to him by a fellow Senator to assist him in his future bid for higher office.

 

He said he was a “PROFESSOR” of Constitutional Law at Harvard.  A lie.  He was a SENIOR LECTURER, on leave.

 

He said, “Without me, there would be no Ethics Bill in Congress.”  A lie.  He did NOT write it, he did NOT introduce it, he did NOT change it … nor create any Ethics Bill at all in Congress.

 

He said, “I took on The Asbestos Altgeld Gardens Mess.”  A lie.  He was merely a part of a large group of people who remedied Altgeld Gardens.  He wanted to take all the credit to himself that in one of his books, he left out all the other people’s names who worked with him.

 

He said, “I have always been against Iraq.”  This, I think, is the biggest lie of all!  He was NOT even in the U.S. Senate as an elected senator when the invasion of Iraq happened.  So, how could he claim that he VOTED against the war?  When he became a Senator, he voted for every funding bill for Iraq to the tune of $300-billion.  Until January 2007, when he ran for President, he has NOT sponsored a single resolution or legislation to end the war or to bring the troops home.  And, he seems to be stepping back now from his proposed withdrawal date of U.S. troops from Iraq.

 

He said, “I have always supported Universal Health Care.”  A lie.  His plan will leave us all, the taxpayers, to pay for the 15,000,000 who do not have to buy it.

 

He said, “I am as patriotic as anyone.”  A lie.  He won’t wear a flag pin on the lapel of his jacket and place his hand over his heart while America’s national anthem is played.

 

The list goes on … and on.

 

He also said that he did “run ads in Florida.”  That’s a lie.  He allowed national ads to run 8 to 12 times a day for two weeks.  He also said, “I won Michigan.”  He did not.  He said, “I won Nevada.” He did not.

 

He said, “I want all votes to count.  I want America to decide.”  A lie.  He prefers caucuses that limit the vote, confuse the voters, force a public vote, and only operate during small windows of time.

 

Yeah, the list of Mr. Obama’s lies goes on … and on.

 

Does Hillary lie, too?  Of course.  She had regaled audiences with tales of a dangerous landing under sniper fire in Tuzla, Bosnia 12 years ago and then running for cover.  None of this happened.  When CBS provided the tape, she confessed that she “misspoke.”  But her list of lies does NOT go on and on, UNLIKE that of B. HUSSEIN Obama’s list that goes on ... and on.  JJ
