Mike Christian, a fine upstanding example of Oklahoma conservatism and the results of term limits, wants to save the State of Arizona from the distinction of being the dumbest effing State in the Union. He is pushing a proposal, if passed (hell if introduced), that guarantees that Oklahoma will fill that slot and reap all of the "benefits" that come with it.
"OKLAHOMA CITY -- An Oklahoma lawmaker's appreciation for Arizona's new tough anti-illegal immigration law has him considering taking it a step further.
State Rep. Mike Christian, R-District 93, said he likes Arizona's new immigration law and that he would like it to extend to babies born in the United States to illegal immigrant parents.
Once born, the children would be given back to their parents and deported."
The Rest of the Story
And to think his name is actually, "Christian."
WAIT! WAIT! CALIFORNIA SAVES OKLAHOMA
Less than an hour after I posted this I learned that California may have done us one better!
Maybe nobody will notice our Fox Pause.

Having watched the CSPAN testimony of the Goldman Sach's henchman about their labyrinth of deals and deals within deals and making bets on assets after sabotaging those asset so they fail and bribing other clients to bet on them so they could short their positions and sell their toxic assets to even different clients...etc. etc. etc...with sour contempt on their faces at the "ignorance' of the Senators, I have to note that the simplistic positions of the educated white middle class middle aged Tea Party members are from a different universe.
Wall Street Gobbledygook Vs. Tea Party certainties....
Wall Streeter's neck tie Vs. a Tea Partier's Sunday-go-to-meeting best suit.....
Wall Street's 10,000 page briefing book sitting on the table at the hearings and used in their testimony Vs. the Tea Partier's hand made sign "I want my Country Back".....
Wall Street's conceit and condescension Vs. The Tea Party superiority and aggressive demands....
Wall Street's Billions on Billions Vs. The Tea Party's nickles and dimes....
Wall Street's stealth Vs. The Tea Party's circus.....
Forever in turmoil and conflict,

Uncensored version of the Bear
Strange but True Tale About a Chinese Teddy Bear in Sudan
Fatman had the TV on this morning and I heard this story about a teacher who was going to be whipped because she sent a teddy bear home with her children. I was really really worried. Mama Bear is a Teacher and she gives her kids teddy bears all the time. Would she get in trouble too?
Fatman said , no Mama Bear will be just fine. We live in America and we don't do things like that here. I got on my computer and looked up "Sudan teddy bear" and got a lot of things about this story. Here is the picture of the teacher and of Muhammad the teddy bear. It seems that Sudan is a very very strict religious country that has something called Muslim Law. The head prophet of the Muslims was name Muhammad and in honor of him lots of parents name their boys Muhammad. So one of the teacher's students named Muhammad wanted to name the teddy bear after himself and she let him. Well naming anything Muhammad is considered disrespectful to Muhammad. Boys are people but they claim teddy bears are things. So she has been charged with a crime and may be punished a whole bunch.
I know this bear by the way. Mama Bear has one just like him and he is made in China and is a lot of trouble. So I am not surprised that he is the one causing trouble.
It makes me very very very sad to think that a teacher like Mama Bear is in jail and will be hurt because the teddy bear was named after some guy that died a long time ago.
When I was looking on the web I also found this picture of a teddy bear in Sudan. I wondered if this teddy was named Muhammad? I bet they won't whip this little boy, because he would probably shoot them. Sudan must be a very strange place. It lets boys carry rifles and punishes teachers for naming teddy bears.
I also learned while reading about Sudan that if you are really bad and blaspheme God there they will cut off your head. I am really worried that the teddy bear Muhammad might have his head cut off. Fatman says no that won't happen and I should not worry about it. So I asked about whether in my country would Mama Bear get in trouble if she named a teddy bear after God's son, Jesus? After all she has had many kids in her school named Jesus. Nope, that won't happen Fatman said. Even as weird as we get sometimes he said, we still live in America and have our freedoms.
Well now I feel better about Mama Bear and know that she is safe. But I am still worried about that bear and teacher in Sudan. I do hope the Chinese don't get mad at the people in Sudan if they do hurt their teddy bear made in China. Also I do hope that people in America don't get like those people in Sudan. I don't know much, but I know God can take care of himself. He doesn't need that kind of help. Cause there are two kinds of help Mama Bear says. There is the kind of help that helping is all about, and there is the kind of help that we can do without.
Editor: The story about the teacher can be found at: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/africa/7115400.stm
Editor: Friday November 30 Update: The 54 year old teacher has been convicted in court of showing disrespect for Islam and sentenced to 15 days in jail and then will be expelled from Sudan. No word on what happened to the Bear of the Children involved. Mobs in sudan inflamed by sermons delivered at Friday prayers are demanding that the teacher be put to death. The government of Sudan seems to be using the incident to create a crises with Brittan. Will this be the Teddy Bear that started a war? Where is Chinese Lord Gordon when we need him?

Catharsis or just a cafard?
Inarticulate this time.
Watched a special about Tim McVeigh's audio tapes a writer made of him.
McVeigh talked and talked,
but I never heard him say...why...I want to know what seed planted by whom grew that demonic cyst that replaced his heart.
I heard him claim to be a proud solider....in who's army..of what cause?
He never gives us an answer, just quotes for his personal place in history that are meaningless.
Somehow the word sociopath just doesn't cover it.

HANNITY: "When you think about the vast majorities that they have in Congress and they had to bribe, backroom deals, corruption, that’s all because the tea party movement, the people — all these Tim McVeigh wannabes here."
I walked in the blood that day.
I attend the funerals.
I buried the dead that died afterwards and never got counted in the totals.
They want to be Tim McVeigh!
That might be arranged.
But if you are not allowed to tune into a particular cable channel? Then, it is not you making the ratings, but the provider of the cable itself deciding for you. Funny, Americans are shitface incited that some health care law would get between them and their doctor, but unconcerned that some cable corporate conglomerate routinely gets between them and their information and understanding of reality.
Within the last year I have traveled into the mid-South, Tennessee, Louisiana, Mississippi, & Texas. I've traveled in Kansas, Nebraska, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, & Missouri. Recently I've been in Wyoming, Idaho, Utah, and Oregon.
I find that Fox News is all over the place. In the motels and hotels I have stayed in as well as on the TVs in eating and drinking places and reception area for doctors and tire companies. When I go to my motel/hotel room and look on the TV channel listings, Fox is always there. CNN is often there as well. Roughly 80 to 90% of the time MSNBC is not.
Someone has decided that I need to see the Republican pseudo-conservative crap ladled out by our Australian Invader, but not my preferred liberal biased MSNBC.
Someone is standing between me and my information and filling the unsuspecting consumer of their product with Fox's swill.
You know if you feed a hog a balance diet of good stuff they love it, but if you feed a hog a diet of leavings and swill they grow to prefer that to the good stuff even though it is not good for them or for the farmer feeding them.
So is it the cable providers that are between me and my news? Is it the motel/hotel owners that have decided I need more swill than substance in my news? I mean if you aren't allowed to watch MSNBC then how will you ever know what they are saying? Freedom of speech? Not hardly! More like corporate control of access to speech.
You know back in the 1960s I took an oath to uphold the Constitution not the Corporations' interpretation of the Constitution. Corporate America seems to have blacklisted MSNBC when they can get away with it.
MSNBC is mild version on the left (want a strong dose try Bill Maher on HBO) of what Fox is on the right. If the corporate mentality can't stand even that modicum of free speech then what is next?
Where is my MSNBC?
On the road.......
