New Video Released: ‘I Do Not Like Barack O’Bam’

On Friday, I wrapped up production of a new video, “I Do Not Like Barack O’Bam.“ Now, I want to share it with you.

I wrote the copyrighted words for this “slam poetry” effort in March 2011 and only recently decided it was time to combine those words with images to convey my feelings about President Barack Obama. If you’re a conservative and a fan of the late Ted Geisel (“Dr. Seuss”), I think you’ll enjoy it immensely.

FYI: Notice I didn’t say I hate the man. Very important difference.

Please enjoy and share.

‘Tryphorgetin’ Back to Haunt Hillary After 8-Year Hiatus

Eight years ago this month, I was in fairly-regular contact with Bruce Chapman, the part-time producer of short and funny politically-incorrect videos. One of his spots touted the fictitious pharmaceutical product, “Tryphorgetin,” as it poked fun at Hillary Clinton in the fall of 2007 before seeming to disappear from the web after the 2008 elections. Today, it resurfaced in my Facebook feed, and I decided it was worth sharing again as the former first lady, senator and secretary of state makes another run for the White House.

Worth noting, this spoof ad was such a hit at the time that conservative talk radio giant Rush Limbaugh played it during the Oct. 5, 2007, broadcast of “The Rush Limbaugh Show.” Now, I hope Rush will play it again as we approach the homestretch of the 2016 presidential campaign.

American Cat Confirmed as Cecil the Lion’s Distant Cousin!

Although I rarely discuss family matters of any kind on this site, I decided to make an exception today after receiving confirmation over the weekend that one of my cats is a distant relative of the late Cecil the Lion who died last month in Zimbabwe.

Cecil the Lion and Butters the House cat bear an uncanny resemblance.

Though distant cousins, Cecil the Lion and Butters the House cat bear uncanny resemblance.

Seven-year-old Butters the House Cat (a.k.a., “Butters, my office assistant”) is, according to Miz Lize Terre Blanche, Zimbabwe’s High Chancellor of Feline Affairs, the 215th cousin of Cecil the Lion.

Cecil the Lion is, according to media reports,  the 13-year-old few Zimbabweans even knew existed before he was hunted down and killed by Walter James Palmer, an American dentist from Minnesota who apparently deserves to die, according to people like animal rights activist and former game show host Bob Barker.

The news arrived Saturday via unsolicited email from the high chancellor herself, and I was fortunate enough to discover the message in my spam folder before it was automatically deleted. In her message, she told me I can receive a copy of the official government documents that prove the existence of the familial relationship between Cecil the Lion and Butters the House Cat if I am willing to pay, via Western Union money order, administrative and acquisition fees totaling USD $10,500.

Now what should I do? Launch a GoFundMe account to raise the money to pay the fees and launch a public relations campaign to capitalize on the commercial viability of Butters’ confirmed relationship to the posthumously-famous Cecil? You tell me.

Celebrate Cinco De Mustard Instead!

Instead of celebrating Cinco De Mayo, a holiday focused on Mexican culture, I urge my fellow Americans to celebrate Cinco De Mustard! After all, what’s more American than going to a baseball game and eating a hot dog or a hamburger topped with mustard? Nothing!

Cinco De MustardTo anyone who takes offense at this post, be advised that no offense is intended. Instead, I’m simply being pro-mustard instead of mayo. LOL

You’re Not Getting Any of My Chocolate!

I enjoy chocolate and politics, but I’m not a big fan of Valentine’s Day. Therefore, I decided to share some history that combines the first two topics with the commercialized holiday instead of sharing my chocolate.

A look at the cards show topis that remain at issue today, including politicians who love themselves more than anything else, an out-of-control judiciary, campaign promises and even the word, insurgent, in 1912!
