NOVA Obama

NOVA Obama = No Vacations for Obama (beginning on January 21, 2013).


The Obama effect, as Reliapundit says.

Even some in the Democratic Party are running away from Obama!

In Memory of Alex Münch

Our good friend Alex has passed away

On Sunday, as soon as I heard the sad news of Alex's passing, I spoke by phone to his son Amnon. Of course, I offered my condolences.

Alex was a good friend to Mr. AOW and me. When Mr. AOW was in the nursing home, nobody called him there - except for Alex, who phoned all the way from Israel to speak to my husband.

"Courage from Israel!"  Alex stated emphatically.

Alex also phoned our home several times after Mr. AOW came home. Mr. AOW loved those calls.  They meant a lot to him and to me as well.

Amnon asked me to post an announcement here on the web as Alex's family didn't know all the Internet acquaintances and friends that Alex had made.

Tough as I am, I am typing this post through tears.

I will miss Alex.  He was a rock - and lots of fun too.

For Memorial Day

Hat tip to Sam Huntington:

Memorial Day is a special one for me. I am a veteran of the Vietnam Era although I was stationed stateside.

In 1968, I lost one of my best friends in the Vietnam War. We went way back as friends -- all the way to our days in 6th grade.

Danny (enlisted in the USMC) was about 20 years old and engaged at the time of his death.

Danny and I used to run a bicycle repair shop together in Southern California; his father co-signed the loan for the building for us.

I was drafted about 2 years after Danny died.

I need to go to the Vietnam War Memorial and look up Danny's name.

The New Pledge of Allegiance

Mrs. AOW has been working in Christian education since 1978.

She found the following, written by a 15-year old, who got at A+ on the paper:
"New Pledge of Allegiance"
Now I sit me down in school
Where praying is against the rule
For this great nation under God
Finds mention of Him very odd.
If scripture now the class recites,
It violates the Bill of Rights.
And anytime my head I bow
Becomes a Federal matter now.
Our hair can be purple, orange or green,
That's no offense; it's a freedom scene..
The law is specific, the law is precise.
Prayers spoken aloud are a serious vice.
For praying in a public hall
Might offend someone with no faith at all..
In silence alone we must meditate,
God's name is prohibited by the state.
We're allowed to cuss and dress like freaks,
And pierce our noses, tongues and cheeks...
They've outlawed guns, but FIRST the Bible.
To quote the Good Book makes me liable.
We can elect a pregnant Senior Queen,
And the 'unwed daddy,' our Senior King.
It's 'inappropriate' to teach right from wrong,
We're taught that such 'judgments' do not belong..
We can get our condoms and birth controls,
Study witchcraft, vampires and totem poles..
But the Ten Commandments are not allowed,
No word of God must reach this crowd.
It's scary here I must confess,
When chaos reigns the school's a mess.
So, Lord, this silent plea I make:
Should I be shot; My soul please take!

Rip Off! Scam!

As a disabled veteran, this one really pisses me off (with thanks to Mrs. AOW, who received the following in an email from her friend Mustang):

Those Stimulus Grants

Funded by the taxpayers, of course:
The NBC Investigative Unit has raised questions about two grants totaling nearly $1.5 million dollars distributed to the University of California San Francisco. The money was part of the federal stimulus program and went to studies into the erectile dysfunction of overweight middle aged men and the accurate reporting of someone's sexual history....
The graphic and the label for this post says it all!

The Good Ol' Days

I miss those road trips that Mrs. AOW and I used to take.

One of the places we always wanted to drive to was Monument Valley:

Now, I'm lucky to get an outing once every few weeks.

Getting old is a bitch.

The Religion of Piece and Pedophilia

Look at the perverts in the photo.

Those nine perverts raped 631 girls in Great Britain!

The Muslim perverts are of Pakistani descent. No surprise there, huh?

The Obama Meal

The welfare state in a nutshell:

You order what you want at McDonald's, and the guy in back of you pays for it.

This works okay until you're in back of somebody with 10 kids.

Monday's headline Washington Post says, "French, Greek voters deal blow to austerity."

IDIOTS! It's the welfare-state spending that got France and Greece into economic trouble!

Reuters says:
President Barack Obama congratulated French president-elect Francois Hollande for his victory Sunday, but warned of "challenges" ahead, a clear reference to Afghanistan and eurozone debt crisis.

The US president was among the first world leaders to welcome Hollande's election as France's first Socialist president in nearly two decades...

Obama invited Hollande for bilateral talks at the White House later this month...

In a telephone call, Obama "indicated that he looks forward to working closely with Mr Hollande and his government on a range of shared economic and security challenges," White House spokesman Jay Carney said in a statement.
Do these recent votes in Europe bode well for Obama in November. GOD FORBID!

Judas Priest!

From Z's site:

PS: I use the phrase "Judas Priest!" when I've exhausted all the other similar phrases. Mrs. AOW wouldn't type in the original title that I came up with for this post.
