Citizens Urged to Get Involved Identifying Terrorist Threats

After reading a WTOP radio report about the disastrous impact a sequester will allegedly have on the nation’s intelligence-gathering capabilities, I came to the tongue-in-cheek conclusion that it’s time to get every American citizen involved in the fight against terror.  Toward that end, I’m sharing anew the Top 5 Signs Your Neighbors Might Be Terrorists that I shared with my readers for the first time almost six years ago.

Below is a recap of the information aimed at helping Americans identify possible terrorist threats and, thereby, prevent much heartache an anguish.

1.  Your neighbors might be terrorists if they have a yellow “Bomber On Board” sign for each of their children in the rear window of their minivan.

2.  Your neighbors might be terrorists if they invite your kids to attend their child’s birthday party at the Build-A-Bomb Workshop.

3.  Your neighbors might be terrorists if their kids take Bomber’s Ed Class instead of Driver’s Ed in high school — and their high school offers the class!

4.  Your neighbors might be terrorists if they give their kids the keys to shiny new car-bombs on their 16th birthdays.

5.  Your neighbors might be terrorists if the camp they send their kids to every summer is located in North Africa.

Please take head of this information, then share it far and wide.  I thank you and, I’m certain, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano thanks you.

‘Point of Order!’

Americans learn a lot about politicians during election years, and they learn a lot about the political process during caucus meetings.  That in mind, I decided to follow Robert’s Rules of Order and make a motion calling for an injection of humor into my far-too-serious ongoing coverage of the 2012 St. Charles County (Mo.) Republican Presidential Caucus and politics in general.  In other words, I’m sharing the video below which features the Australian comedy team of John Clarke and Bryan Dawe, with the former of which playing the role of a newly-appointed “impartial” politician.  Enjoy!

New Video Reveals ‘A World Without Guns’

Gun ownership is one of the rights many Americans believe will come under fire if Barack Obama is elected to a second term in 2012.  With the Second Amendment in mind, I share “A World Without Guns,” a seriously funny video from my friend, Joel Berry, at SweetTeaFilms.com.

Enjoy Some Christmas Videos From the Trailer Park

Over the years, I’ve shared a lot of great videos from my friend, Joel Berry at SweetTeaFilms.com.  Today, I offer two of his funniest Christmas videos starring “Tavin Dillard,” his character who lives in a trailer park with his grandmother, “Meemaw.”

In the first video (above), Tavin recounts how he got roped into playing the role of Joseph in a live nativity scene at the local Presbyterian church during the midnight-4 a.m. shift.  In the second video (below), he makes a not-too-subtle and politically-incorrect point about the idiotic “war” on Christmas.  It’s all good!

For more enjoyable humor from the trailer park, visit SweetTeaFilms.com.

Meanwhile, I hope you and yours have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Barack Obama’s Vision for the State of Israel

With the Obama Administration doing almost everything possible to undermine Israel, I thought I’d offer a 2011 update of the State of Israel coin originally “minted” in 2009 as one of Barack Obama’s Seven Mystery States Coin Collection.

Can We Improve Politicians With Modern Medicine?

Yesterday, an online friend of mine, Tom Birkenmeier, published a post under the very long headline, An Idea Whose Time Is Long Overdue! How Modern Medical Science Can Help Us Select Better Senators, Congressional Representatives, Federal Judges And Supreme Court Justices.  Here’s a snippet:

Tom Birkenmeier

I hear a lot of people, me included, saying things like:

“Politicians are crazy?”

“What are they thinking?”

“Are they out of their minds?”

“How can they think is that a good idea?”

“They ought to have their heads examined!”

Well, where there’s brain smoke…there might also be some brain fires!

While reading the remainder of Birk’s post, I was reminded of several pieces I’ve published during the past five years about politicians, their brains (or lack thereof) and ways to improve both.  With the 2012 election cycle gearing up, I think it’s worthwhile to share them with readers again:

Politicians Should Donate Their Brains to Science (2-2-10) — It’s not often when one can draw parallels between professional athletes and elected officials in Washington, D.C..  Today, however, one of those opportunities surfaced, causing me to conclude that politicians, like professional football players, should donate their brains to science.

Biotech Firm Offers ‘Mental Stimulus Package’ (2-24-09) — Quincy Bioscience President Mark Underwood is so concerned about the declining quality of memory among federal government officials that he is offering free bottles of a brain-enhancing supplement to any member of Congress or official in the incoming administration who has forgotten to pay taxes within the last 10 years.

Size Matters When It Comes to Your Brain (4-15-08) — During nearly a quarter-century of marriage, I’ve been conditioned by my wife to be self-conscious about the size of my forehead — the one she likes to describe as “Enormous!” That said, it should come as no surprise to anyone that I was interested in what followed this headline: How Big Is Your Brain?

Doctor Calls for Scans of Candidates’ Brains (12-5-07) — In an editorial published in the Los Angeles Times today, Dr. Daniel G. Amen recommends brain scans for presidential candidates. As a neuropsychiatrist and brain-imaging expert, he writes: I want our elected leaders to be some of the “brain healthiest people” in the land.

I hope you enjoyed this buffet of food for thought.  Please vote wisely during the 2012 election cycle.

‘Obama Gets Tough’ Video Wishful Thinking

Though I’m not convinced President Barack Obama has lost any fights with members of Congress, the “Obama Gets Tough” video below is the kind of wishful thinking I hope will become a reality soon.

This excellent video was produced by my liberal friend, David Donar at Political Graffiti, whose editorial cartoons appear often on the pages of this site.  Thanks, Dave!
