This article from the American Thinker is an eye-opener...
President Quixote's Legacy: Confused, Ill-Educated And Not Too Bright
Only thing I don't agree with in Mr. Pelerin's fine article is when he writes that that the democrats will likely turn on "this poseur [Obama] before the election."
There are still a lot of "free stuff" people out there. A GOP win in 2012 is not a sure thing.

This sunflower showed up in our garden uninvited, i.e., we didn't plant it. No doubt it was a product of a sunflower seed from the bird feeder that was dropped onto the mulch bed surrounding our intended plants and made itself at home in our garden.
Today I ran across the use of sunflowers in:
Phytoremediation: You Can Grow Plants That Help Eliminate Radiation In The Soil
I'm not sure how much scientific proof there is so far, but the theory is that the sunflower's root structure is so dense and strong that it is able extract heavy metals such as arsenic, lead, and radionuclides Cesium 137 and Strontium 90 out of the soil or water.
I'm not sold on it yet, but I thought it was worth passing on.

Spring has sprung.
Winter has fell.
Summer is here,
And it's hot as...
Hello, what is summer without grilling and what is grilling without hot dogs?

Happy Father's Day to all the dads out there who do right by their families every day of the year.
Today will be a special Father's Day in our household. My sister's son is being baptized and Mr. Cube will be the Godfather and I will be his Godmother.
This is new experience for us and we hope we are up to the task.
Now all I need to do is get Mr. Cube to stop with the Godfather jokes

I confess that I do watch some reality shows, but "I'm a Celebrity ... Get Me Out of Here!" is not one of them. That's why I missed this...
Blagojevich: Patti Ate A Tarantula For Her Family
It makes me wonder what lies in store for Huma Weiner and her family.
[The BLOG note: this is a photo of the tarantula paperweight that sits on my desk. I would never even think of eating it, despite the plexiglass...]

“Why Aren’t You Speaking English?” : A Texas Senator Is Receiving Praise And Criticism
I can't believe Senator Chris Harris (R-TX) is getting any criticism at all for asking a man who has been living in the United States since 1988 why he wasn't speaking English during his testimony during a committee hearing.
I think it is a legitimate question.

$5 Raffle Ticket Buys Dinner With Obama
Firstly, this email is riddled with lies, lies, and more lies. It is obvious that BO knows his constituency is beyond stupid.
Secondly, if I were BO, eating is the last thing I would highlight given the history of gag-inducing pictures of me stuffing my piehole. Google image 'Obama eating' if you don't believe it.
Thirdly, I wouldn't have dinner with BO if he paid me!

Yesterday I read about Cedar Falls City Council OKs Controversial Lock Box Ordinance where the government demands the keys to your home... for your safety, of course.
Today I read about this:
Coral Gables: Keep Parked Pickup Trucks Out Of Sight Overnight
This is government gone wild with abuse of power over our lives.
