THE POST TURTLE Print E-mail
Written by To The Point News   
Friday, 20 June 2008

While suturing a cut on the hand of a 75 year old Texas cowboy rancher, whose hand was caught in a gate while working cattle, the doctor struck up a conversation with the old man.

Eventually the topic got around to Barack Hussein Obama, Jr. and his bid to be our President.

The old cowboy said, "Well, ya know, Obama is a 'post turtle'."

Not being familiar with the term, the doctor asked him what a 'post turtle' was.

The old cowboy said, "When you're driving down a country road and you come across a fence post with a turtle balanced on top, that's a 'post turtle'."

The old man saw a puzzled look on the doctor's face, so he continued to explain.

"You know he didn't get up there by himself, he doesn't belong up there, he doesn't know what to do while he is up there, and you just want to help the dumb ass get down."

DUMB AND DUMBER: MCCAIN AND OBAMA ON OUR OIL Print E-mail
Written by Jack Kelly   
Monday, 16 June 2008

Sen. John McCain plans to visit Colombia and Canada this summer, presumably to contrast his views on free trade with those of Sen. Barack Hussein Obama.  He may also visit Iraq, in part to remind people Sen. Obama hasn't been there in more than two years.

Sen. McCain should add one more stop on his summer travel itinerary.  He should visit the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, an area about the size of South Carolina in Alaska's far north.

Oil companies want to drill in a portion of ANWR roughly the size of Dulles airport, where the U.S. Geological Survey thinks there may be 10.4 billion barrels of recoverable oil, an amount equivalent to 37 percent of the current U.S. proved reserves of 21.7 billion barrels.  

But Sen. McCain says he'd no sooner drill in ANWR than in the Grand Canyon.  And Sen. Obama is even dumber than that.

HAPPINESS ISN'T ALWAYS VIRTUOUS Print E-mail

Happy people make the world a better place. They tend to be more virtuous and to bring positive relationships and effective problem solving where they go.

But not always.

Some of the happiest people on earth are those who hold very rigid and inflexible beliefs with absolute certainty. And these are also the people who tend to make life miserable for the rest of us.

The terrorist leader of Al Qaeda in Iraq, Abu Musab al-Zarqawi talked about how miserable he had been before he committed himself fully to his "cause", and how happy he had been since - happily beheading innocent people for the cameras so that he could horrify as many people as he could.

I don't doubt that he actually felt happy. He was totally absorbed in what he considered meaningful "work", and he could put everything he had into it, without the burden of doubt or reflection. He was certain, and passionate, and committed.  Happily, our soldiers killed him in June, 2006.

In a few hours from now (6/12 noon), I'm off to Iraqi Kurdistan, then Jordan and Israel.  In July, I'll be retracing Cortez's route from Vera Cruz to Tenochtitlan (Mexico City) launching his conquest of Mexico in 1519.  In August, there's our To The Point Revolutionary Rendezvous in Boston.

So this is to let you all know we're switching to our summer schedule for To The Point starting next week.  There will be pretty much the same number of articles per week, but we'll be posting them as they come in - rather than compiling them in the TTP Weekly Report on Friday afternoon.

Because other TTP authors also will be traveling a lot as well.  Right now, for example, Joel Wade is in the wilds of the Australian Outback with his family.

Thus instead of a Weekly Report, we'll be sending you a TTP Article Alert whenever a new article is up.

Now let's talk about the Revolutionary Rendezvous.  The place:  Boston.  The dates:  August 22-24.  The schedule:

CONFIRMED: BUSH IS NO RONALD REAGAN AND NEITHER IS MCCAIN Print E-mail
Written by Dr. Jack Wheeler   
Thursday, 12 June 2008

On February 11, 1985, President Ronald Reagan hosted a State Dinner for Saudi King Fahd at the White House.  It was earlier in the day at a private meeting between the two that history was made.

With oil at sky high prices and the Soviet Union producing more oil than the Saudis, the oil revenues provided Moscow with a cash cow financing an incredibly aggressive expansion of its imperialist empire.

The Soviets had added 14 colonies to their empire in recent years, and with Nicaragua and the El Salvador insurgency as its bases, were ready to make a move on Mexico.  The largest Soviet embassy in the world was in Mexico City.

With this in mind, Reagan told Fahd what he wanted the Saudi king to do:  quadruple oil production and crash world oil prices.  Fahd was stunned.  "Why should I ever want to do that? " was his response.

The Chicoms' prospects for their Genocide Olympics keep rolling downhill.  The latest headline indicator:  Will The Olympics Not Be Televised? 

Incredibly, the Chicoms are putting so many restrictions hampering television coverage that IOC officials fear the Beijing Games may not be broadcast to the world at all.  The whole thing is increasingly likely to be one giant MCF - Mongolian Cluster Foul-up...

...An even bigger MCF may have caused China's Sichuan earthquake last month.  It's become known that the earthquake zone was where China had its secret nuclear weapons research facilities.

What's much less well-known is that a nuclear explosion occurred at one of these secret underground facilities, either triggering or triggered by the earthquake...

... The HFR now raises its glass of rice wine to toast cumbay! to all those poor demented souls in Seoul suffering from Mad Korean Disease... Yet Mad Obambi Disease is far more dangerous to America than fear of mad cows is to Korea.  To see just how dangerous it would be to our national security, watch this 52-second anti-military rant Obambi goes on...

... Which is why the HFR hoists a mug of Pabst Blue Ribbon beer to Tony Rezko in hopes he lives a long life - or at least long enough for him to turn state's evidence and rat on Obambi.

[This commencement address was originally published three years ago. We  rerun it annually at college graduation time. Feel quite free to send this to any recent college graduate you may know.]

Mr. Chancellor, Members of the Board of Regents, Members of the Faculty, Honored Graduates, Families and Friends:

It's funny that they call this ceremony a Commencement, for you've all reached the finish line:  college, goodbye, we're outta here.  Yet of course, "commencement" means a beginning, not an end.

But one is supposed to at least start - commence - a talk such as this by saying funny things.  So I'll start by talking about Clark Gable movies.  If you've heard of Clark Gable at all, you know he was the biggest movie star in Hollywood a long time ago.  His most famous movie was of course Gone With The Wind.

He made a movie in 1955 called The Tall Men with Jane Russell as his girlfriend and Robert Ryan as the heavy.  It's a pretty ordinary Western flick with outlaws and cowboys and Indians - and at the end, Ryan, the bad guy, and his henchmen get the drop on Gable, the good guy, and all seems lost.  Suddenly, surprise, Gable outfoxes Ryan and triumphs.  Gable makes his exit, and after he does, Ryan delivers a line that I want you to never forget.

Serendipity is funny, a very funny thing, finding something where you least expect it.  Out of the blue, out of a movie awash with pedestrian dialogue, comes a line so profound it detonates inside your brain. Ryan turns to his men and says:

The half life of a Barack Hussein Obama campaign pledge is getting shorter. 

Last Wednesday (6/04), Sen. Obama spoke before the American Israel Public Affairs Committee.  Though the group is predominantly Democrat, Sen. Obama wanted to reassure it, because many AIPAC members know he has chosen as his foreign policy advisers and spiritual mentors people who have said unkind things about Israel.

Reassure them he did.  "Jerusalem will remain the capital of Israel, and it must remain undivided," Sen. Obama told AIPAC.

The next day, however, after receiving criticism from, among others, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, Sen. Obama's campaign issued a "clarification."  And that is just the start of his hypocrisy regarding Israel.

THE VAPID MESSIAH Print E-mail

Sen. Barack Hussein Obama celebrated clinching the Democratic nomination with a speech from the convention center in St. Paul.  Future generations, he told his adoring audience, will look back upon that night and say: "this was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal..."

Canute the Great (995-1035), the Viking king of England, Denmark and Norway, is reputed to have waded into the ocean and ordered the waves to recede.  Canute, who was actually a pretty modest guy for a king, didn't really expect the water to obey.  He staged the scene to teach a lesson about the limits of a king's powers to sycophantic courtiers. 

But Sen. Obama apparently wasn't kidding.

It'd be hard enough for a President Obama to bring peace to the Middle East and carbon free energy independence to the United States without regulating sea levels too.

OBAMA FAN Print E-mail

Thursday, 12 June 2008

A teacher in Elmira, New York asked her 5th grade class how many of  them were Obama fans.

Not really knowing what an Obama fan was, but wanting to be liked by the teacher, all the kids raised their hands.  Except for Johnny.

The teacher asked,  "Johnny, why did you decide to be different from the rest of the class?"

Johnny explained, "Because I'm not an Obama fan."

The teacher asked, "Well, Johnny, why aren't you an Obama fan?"

Johnny explained, "Because I'm a Republican."

The teacher asked, "Why are you a Republican, Johnny?"

Johnny answered, "Well, my mom's a Republican and my dad's a Republican, so I'm a Republican."

With a smirk that made the class giggle, the teacher asked, "Johnny, if your mom was a moron and your dad was an idiot, what would that make you?"

A huge smile broke out across Johnny's face.  "That," he happily replied, "would make me an Obama fan!"

THE MCCAIN-HILLARY PACT TO SCREW OBAMA Print E-mail
Written by Dr. Jack Wheeler   
Thursday, 05 June 2008

The Democrat Circus continues to be the zaniest show in town.  Obambi exults the nomination is barely his while Hillary the Loser angrily demands she be his running-mate. 

Angrily demanding something is rarely the most effective negotiating technique to get what you want.  A smart person will use it only when both the anger and the demand are a pretense, when you want your demand rejected, not accepted.

Yes, intimidation often works when your opponent is a pussy.  Obambi is indeed a pussy, and voters' suspicion that he is would only be confirmed if he capitulated to Clinton intimidation - which is why he has to reject her, even though he knows she wants to be rejected.

It's not complicated once it's understood what Hillary's game plan is now - and the pact she's making with John McCain to achieve it.  So the plan works like this.

O = ZERO Print E-mail

To The Point is proud to present its candidate for Best Bumper Sticker of 2008:

ozero

The O-man, Barack Hussein Obama, is an eloquently tailored empty suit.  No résumé, no accomplishments, no experience, no original ideas, no understanding of how the economy works, no understanding of how the world works, no balls, nothing but abstract empty rhetoric devoid of real substance.

He has no real identity.  He is half-white, which he rejects.  The rest of him is mostly Arab, which he hides but is disclosed by his non-African Arabic surname and his Arabic first and middle names as a way to triply proclaim his Arabic parentage to people in Kenya.  Only a small part of him is African Black from his Luo grandmother, which he pretends he is exclusively.

What he isn't, not a genetic drop of, is "African-American," the descendant of enslaved Africans brought to America chained in slave ships.  He hasn't a single ancestor who was a slave.  Instead, his Arab ancestors were slave owners.  Slave-trading was the main Arab business in East Africa for centuries until the British ended it.

Let that sink in:  Obambi is not the descendant of slaves, he is the descendant of slave owners.  Thus he makes the perfect Liberal Messiah.

It's pretty obvious what most needs to be celebrated this week:  that unless she manages to have Obambi rubbed out in the next few months, the nightmare of President Pantsuit has been postponed to at least 2012...

... We need to celebrate something else that crashed and burned like the Clintons this week:  the greatest piece of fascist legislation since the 16th Amendment, the Lieberman-Warner Climate Security Act...

... We need to follow this victory up now with a Pro-CO2 Movement, extolling the extraordinary benefits of more CO2 in our atmosphere - such as wiping out hunger.  As we discussed in Solar Warming back in September 2005...

... The best way to produce more CO2 is to produce more of what we need more of most:  oil, oil and gas, oil and gas and coal.  Thus the HFR is grateful to the US Geological Survey and the Minerals Management Service (USGS/MMS) of the Interior Department for releasing its current assessment of our country's oil and gas resources...

... One thing the world needs a lot more of is Moslems converting to Christianity.  Which is why a shocked HFR hoists an amazed glass to the Church of England, which announced it is launching a campaign specifically targeting Moslem for conversion...

... and the HFR has lots more this week.

FIRE AND NICE FOR MCCAIN'S VP Print E-mail
Written by Jack Kelly   
Wednesday, 04 June 2008

Who? When?  Republicans, including Sen. McCain himself I would imagine, are asking these questions about his selection of a vice presidential candidate.

Ideally, a presidential candidate wants a running mate who will help him win the election, and (maybe) to govern afterwards.  But most will settle for a veep who isn't a drag on the ticket, as Dan Quayle was for the first President Bush.

Traditionally, a presidential nominee has chosen a running mate to balance the ticket geographically, or to appease a faction of the party.  The most successful example of this was when John F. Kennedy picked Lyndon Johnson, though neither liked the other, and LBJ joined the ticket only because he thought Kennedy would lose.

Bill Clinton broke with this tradition when he chose another young (purported) moderate from a neighboring southern state.  By picking Al Gore, he hoped to reinforce his campaign theme of generational change.

Which way will Sen. McCain go? The potential running mates most often discussed have downsides nearly as great as their upsides.  There's an exception, however, who has virtually no downside.  Those conservatives who've heard of her - yes, her - were delighted to learn that McCain advance man Arthur Culvahouse was in Alaska recently, because they surmised he could only be there to discuss the vice presidential nomination with Gov. Sarah Palin.

DOING BUSINESS WITH THE FRENCH Print E-mail
Written by Mercury Traveler   
Thursday, 05 June 2008

Traveling to Paris in search of business for a Belgian steel mill, after trying 14 days to find the responsible person in the ministry of energy, I sent a telex to the "Director General of the ministry of Energy, department Coal Mines", even though I hadn't a clue what his name was.

Arriving unannounced the next morning at the ministry I bluntly show my telex to a clerk with a pretentious uniform, and, miracle of miracles, he calls somebody who calls somebody and another uniformed clerk appears who guides me through the portals of heaven.
 
I am ushered in a palatial office, compared to which the Oval Office is a cubicle, and I am introduced to a rotund gentleman behind a massive desk: Director General Vautran of the French Coal Mines. My telex had specified why I wanted to see this Emperor of the French Mines.

He looks at me and my young face, asks me my age and: "Do you drink wine?"  I admit that I like a glass from time to time and let slip that my father-in-law is a wine merchant. He ducks behind his imperial desk and hauls a 5 liter (1½ gallon) belly bottle of wine, fills two glasses, hands me one, says "santé" and gulps his down. It is not quite 9 o'clock in the morning.
