Netanyahu, Israel, Stand Alone at UN

Great speech. Too bad Obama's Amerika stands with the enemies of Israel...

I've heard talk that if the Israeli Air force attempts to fly over Iraq in order to reach and destroy the nuclear reactors in Iran, Obama may order the United States Air force to intercept the Israeli bombers, and perhaps shoot them down.

More and more it appears that Obama feels the same way about Israel as her enemies do. In fact, Obama seems to feel the same way about America as her enemies do. That's why America's enemies love him.

Quote(s) of the Day

"... in that Qaddafi speech, I mean that guy covered every topic... 9/11, swine flu, Yugoslavia, jet lag, health care... how he wants 'Our son Barack Obama'... by the way, for the 'Birthers' I don't think that's a literal thing, so don't go hunting up the Libyan birth certificate... How he wants 'our son Barack Obama' to be America's president for life... and why not... It's worked out great for Libya and North Korea."
--Mark Steyn

"By the way, Colonel Qaddafi will be doing all five Sunday morning shows, so they should wrap up around Thursday..."
--Mark Steyn

"The problem with the United Nations is that if you take a half a pint of Vanilla Ice Cream and mix it with half a pint of dog doo doo, the result will taste more like the latter than the former... and that is the problem with the UN... When you mix free societies with totalitarian basket-case dictatorships, the result naturally inclines more to the dictator's view of things than to free peoples' view of things."

My Brother, My Sister(s), My Self

My Cousin, Jo Ellen (Shelley) Benbow posted the above picture on her facebook page. It's about 52 years old.
In a dictionary, the word "unassuming" would best be explained and illustrated with a picture of my cousin, Jo. She is the type of person that everybody likes.
Below is a picture of Jo Ellen, Jody, Jo Jelly Shelley.

Jo was our little sister who wasn't really our little sister. She was the quietest of us... and in many ways, I think... the best of us.

This picture better represents my immediate family.

Qaddafi Does the U.N.

Libyan leader Muammar Qaddafi is still speaking at the United Nations... Still speaking. I watched a little, but I had to stop.

The man is totally stoned. I don't know what he's on, but he is feeling no pain... And making no sense.

Democrats Win Republican Straw Poll

WASHINGTON — A straw vote suggests former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee is a favorite among religious conservatives to be president in 2012.

This is the same Huckabee that ran for Vice President in the primaries of '08. You remember him... He was the guy kissing John McCain's liberal rear end while attacking his conservative rivals.

Religious people should be more interested in finding out which conservative candidate the moderates and independents prefer. But they're not.

Obviously Christians are saved from sin, not stupidity.

Democrats must be thrilled with the vote.

First Lady Confirms Medical Condition

Michelle Obama announced Thursday that she has indeed developed a high abdominal hernia which will require surgical repair. The First Lady, shown here sporting a Bristol Myers High Abdominal Hernia Truss, said it didn't hurt much, but it did give her some powerful gas.
Mrs. Obama made her announcement before The National Council of Negro Women at the Marriott in Baltimore. She reserved announcements concerning her fallen arches for The National Council of White Women meeting across the hall. The National Council of Asian Women which huddled in the lounge were forced yet again to accept pot luck as they awaited word on Mrs. Obama's hemorrhoids.
The entire staff at Malott's Blog almost unanimously wishes the First Lady well.

Understanding Jimmy

I would love to be able to get into Jimmy Carter's head and understand why he says the things he does. Imagine the fascinating pathology that failure has inflicted upon the mind of an arrogant elitist like Carter. Since leaving office he has spent his energy looking for respect and redemption.

In these efforts, Carter naturally concentrates on the only two groups which are the least bit interested in what he has to say... The liberal media and the Democrat Party. He sides with the Palestinians, pays homage to Fidel Castro, and calls Obama's detractors racists in an effort to appeal to the Leftists and Socialists that run the media and his Party.

A proud and arrogant man such as Carter must find it hard to love a country who tossed him aside in favor of a Hollywood actor... An actor who experienced great success as president immediately following Carter's dismal failures... An actor who garnered the love and respect of his countrymen.

So Jimmy... I understand... And I'm sorry for you... But you're still an arrogant putz.

Hiring Blacks... Electing Blacks...

ATLANTA (AP) - Former President Jimmy Carter said Tuesday that U.S. Rep. Joe Wilson's outburst to President Barack Obama during a speech to Congress last week was an act "based on racism" and rooted in fears of a black president.

Carter does Obama no favors when he trashes the white electorate. He should stick to his first love... trashing the Jews.

A few years ago the University of Notre Dame hired a very good African-American man named Ty Willingham, as its football coach. The decision was heralded as the "right move." Unfortunately, Willingham didn't win. And more to the point, he didn't recruit well which meant there would be no winning in Notre Dame's future. So the university fired him, which was the "right move," because they wanted to win.

Articles were written about the firing of Willingham that criticized Notre Dame, and offered the fact that previous white coaches had been given more years to prove themselves with the Irish football program. Please note: Any suggestion of racism against a college football program hurts the recruiting of black athletes, so the criticism was not an insignificant thing.

The moral of the story? Be very cautious when you contemplate hiring a black coach, because if he doesn't work out... firing him will get ugly. The race card was used against Notre Dame by well-meaning sports writers, but I believe the effect had the potential at least to decelerate the rise of some very talented up-and-coming black coaches.

We are now seeing the same race card being played against critics of our first black president, whose socialist policies are becoming more unpopular by the day with conservative, moderate, and independent voters. American voters, and employers, are learning that Obama's election was as much a cultural cause as a means to a successful future. If we "fire him" in 2012, the mainstream media will no doubt trash the electorate with charges of racism.

The moral of the story? Elect white guys! If they don't work out, you can get rid of them without being branded with the most fearful and despicable label of our times... that being the label... Racist!

Good people of all political persuasions do not take kindly to having their knuckles whacked by left-wing pundits over nonexistent racism... a phantom evil that does not lounge in their hearts.

Who suffers in all this? The black politician? Yes! The average African-American looking for a job? Yes!

Moderates and conservatives have long been rooting for the black man, the black family, and their success. The race card is the political device that taints these good people with an unfair burden, a warning to employers that the hiring of this minority comes with a risk.

Proving yourself worthy of employment is hard enough without entertaining a monkey on your back. I hope that the race card albatross, the race card mill stone, will one day be mercifully put to bed.

Press Protected Minority

Precisely one year ago, on Sept. 12, 2008, 25 people died and many more were seriously injured in a commuter train wreck in California. For two days the horrific accident was front-page news, and then suddenly the story died. By the first week of November, Internet search engines for the most part found only stories that followed the initial crash.

In contrast, the Metrorail accident in Washington, D.C., that killed nine people in June 2009 has received massive media coverage. An Internet search of the operator's name, Jeanice McMillan, yields dozens of results despite the fact that she was blameless in the crash. Why, then, was the larger and more fatal accident dropped from the news in just a few days?

The answer: The engineer, Robert M. Sanchez, 46, was a homosexual, and he was sending a text message to a teenage boy when he blew through a red light, crashing head-on into an oncoming freight train. Because being "gay" is a media cause in America, and particularly in California, virtually no gay crime is reported. Domestic violence involving gays is rarely if ever reported in California newspapers despite the fact that it represents a disproportionate number of police calls. Simply put, the minute the individual who caused the train crash was identified as being homosexual, reporting on the disaster came to a virtual stop.

I found a link to this story on and showed it to a Christian friend at work who votes for Democrats (He's young), and after reading the above, he said you can't believe everything you read on the Internet. Case closed.

However... The article continues...

On Sept. 21, 2008, the New York Times did publish a 40-paragraph, sympathetic story about the killer engineer, Robert Sanchez, which centered on his diabetes and the suicide of his "partner" in 2003. The dead and injured passengers were not mentioned. In paragraph one of the story, titled "Several Portraits Emerge of Engineer in Crash," it is mentioned that he was sending a text message to a teenage boy at the time of the accident, saying, "He encouraged teenagers who showed their own enthusiasm for the rails. ..."

I take no pleasure in trashing this dead gay guy, but I know that if he had been a heterosexual texting his girlfriend it would have been a huge story. If he had been a Christian texting prayers to his pastor... Oh my!

Let's get real: Bob Sanchez was using his position as a railroad engineer to pick up teenage boys who had an interest in railroads. In his excitement in communicating with a teenage boy by text message he took his eyes off the rails in front of him and killed himself and 24 others while leaving dozens with permanent injuries, some crippled for life.

I don't know that the first sentence in the paragraph above is true, and neither does the author. But I know that linking gay men with young boys just isn't done in today's liberal news cycle. According to the liberal template, our young men are safe from gays, and there is absolutely no proselytizing going on. "Chickenhawk," a man who uses underage boys for his sexual pleasure, is a a prejudiced and unspoken slur.

Fine. This story unveils the liberal press, that picks and chooses who they will vilify.


White Student Beaten On A Bus By Black Students

"'The incident appears now to be more about a couple of bullies on a bus dictating where people sit,' said Belleville Police Capt. Don Sax, who originally said Monday's attack may have been racially motivated."

Racially motivated? Surely not! Blacks can only be victims, don't you know?

After a tornado hit our town, my class was bussed to a rural school. If the above had happened, the major damage would have been inflicted by our busdriver, who would have beaten the crap out of us.

Malott's Medical Tips

I love to give advice. I have no real concern as to whether or not my advice is followed... I just love to give advice.

1) Before choosing a physician, ask nurses and other medical professionals from the nearest hospital who they would recommend. They pretty much know who is competent... and though they won't tell you which doctors shouldn't be allowed to practice medicine, they will likely have, and be willing to offer, strong opinions about who is good. Try and find out which doctors the other doctors and their families go to for treatment.

2) As a rule, choose older physicians. Their vacation homes are already paid for.

3) If you have outpatient work to be done (lab, X-ray, etc.), find a way to have that work done early on a weekday morning. Don't expect the same quality at 6PM that you'd get at 8AM. The best technicians generally don't work evenings, nights, or weekends.

4) Sing, laugh, hug, kiss, hold hands, and have sex as much as you can. It's good for your immune system. Never pass up an opportunity to hold a baby or cuddle a child.

5) Go to the surgeon last.

6) Do not get emotionally involved with your physician. He is running a business, and you are not his relative. And remember, no matter how good he is, he has blind spots and bad days. Bedside manner and likability are the two most overrated aspects of physician care.

7) Don't go to the doctor for every little pain. My grandmother NEVER went to the doctor, NEVER was in the hospital, and lived to be 92. My mother has frequently visited the doctor all her adult life, has been on a multitude of medications, has been in the hospital numerous times... And I believe this is the proximal reason why at 83 she enjoys the same health that her mother enjoyed at 92.

8) If you don't exercise, don't get enough rest, don't keep your weight down... and if you eat junk... Don't expect to feel good. Clean up these areas of your life before you go to your physician for a pill.

9) Go to Church, practice fasting, read the Bible, and pray at least five minutes, out loud, every morning. You will enjoy better health.

10) Don't get critically ill or have accidents on the weekend.

11) Wear loose fitting clothing and comfortable shoes.

12) Forgive... especially family members. Find a way to be content with, and enjoy what you have. Avoid anger. You will grow fewer tumors.

13) Take a multiple vitamin once per day, and take a vitamin C & B complex twelve hours later. (Vitamins A, D, and E are fat soluble - your body stores them... C&B are water soluble, and you pee them away.)

14) Enjoy the sunshine, but stay out of tanning beds.

15) Do not have bariatric surgery.

16) Submit to necessary vaccinations. They stimulate your immune system.

17) If you live in an agricultural area, drink bottled water from somewhere else.

18) Prepare your own food (from unprocessed ingredients) as much as possible. Develop a taste for green things, and eat lots of them. Avoid arsenic, sugar, lead, mercury, and other poisons.

19) Carry hand sanitizer in your car. Use it after you go to the grocery or the mall... And be sure to use it after attending Church. And if you're sick, do the Christian thing and stay home from Church.

20) If you have a stressful job, find something to hit... like a punching bag, a tennis ball, or a liberal acquaintance.

Israeli Astronaut's Son Perishes

After hours of rumors, the IDF has lifted a gag order and permits the publication of the sad news that an IAF F-16 fighter plane went down in the Southern Chevron Hills area. The pilot, Lt. Assaf Ramon, was killed in the crash, which occurred near the community of Maale Chever.

He was the oldest of four children, and his father, Colonel Ilan Ramon Z”L, was Israel’s first astronaut, who perished along with the crew of the ill-fated Columbia NASA STS-107 Columbia mission in 2003.

Very sad for the family and all of Israel.

It made me think of sisters Lisa and Samantha Egan, 31 and 24 respectively who died in the Twin Towers.

Lisa got her younger sister the job at Cantor Fitzgerald Securities which lost 685 employees in the attack on September 11th.
And then there were the 5 Sullivan Brothers from Iowa who all died on the USS Juneau in WWII.
Some families sacrifice more than their share.

"You Lie!" - Rep. Joe Wilson OWNS Barack Obama on Illegal Immigration at Congress Health Care Speech

First of all, I don't approve of congressmen trashing the decorum that traditionally accompanies joint sessions of Congress. As a conservative, I wish, when representative Wilson lost control, he would have yelled, "That's not true!".

I'm sure Wilson was frustrated because Republicans sought to amend the House Bill demanding a "citizenship verification system," but it was rejected by Democrats. Illegals already have free healthcare in hospitals, and the hospitals eat the bill. Government-run healthcare would probably pass that bill directly to taxpayers, instead of the current system that indirectly passes the cost to Americans in the form of higher hospital procedure prices.

Wilson should not be praised for his vulgar outburst, nor should he be punished for speaking the truth. At least he didn't yell, "You suck," which I said several times, unreported, as I watched Obama's promotional instruction in socialism.

She Likes to Watch (Update)

I blogged here about visiting the Facebook page of a woman from our church of whom I'd heard such glowing spiritual things... And that I was soooo disappointed when I read that her favorite TV shows were Grey's Anatomy and House.

Well this weekend I was watching the news and surfing during commercials... And I came upon a re-run of Grey's Anatomy. This program was in the middle of a commercial break, but I decided to watch and see how long it took them to get to something immoral.

After the commercial, the scene opened with a male and female in scrubs, standing in a hospital stairwell, discussing the fact that they had recently had sex. The male wanted to know how many men the woman had been with, and ended up announcing that he had syphilis.

I remember thinking, 'Well now that didn't take long!'

Later this weekend I stumbled upon House, and decided to watch. About 5 minutes in, there was a bachelor party in which men were licking something off the bare midriffs of prostitutes, then using their mouths to retrieve a shot glass of liquor from the prostitute's cleavage, and then accepting some object mouth to mouth from the prostitutes. It looked like it could be a ritual from a temple of Baal.

Mm Hmm. Now I'm sure the spiritual lady from church would bristle a bit if I walked up to her on Sunday and asked if I could drink liquor from her cleavage. I'm sure she would be insulted being asked to participate in such a vile act...

After all, she is a Christian and prefers to just watch.

Now remember, this is one of the most respected and loved... Supposedly one of the most faithful and religious women in our church... Makes me wonder what the riffraff on the back row are up to!

And I suspect this is an example of why organized religion enjoys, and has earned, the reputation it has in this country. It may help explain why two thirds of our young people leave the Church.

Like I said in my previous post, I have my own list of spiritual short-comings. But I will not be bragging about them on Facebook.

Norma Aspinwall R.I.P.

"Grammy's" mother died this weekend. Her name was Norma and she was very bright and very refined. Grammy and I played tennis (doubles) with her and her late husband George on a few occasions. When Norma could get to the tennis ball, she knew what to do with it.

I liked her!

Grammy, our prayers are with you and your family.

Obama ‘Disingenuous’

British officials claim Mr Obama and Mrs Clinton were kept informed at all stages of discussions concerning Megrahi’s return.

Well now that can't possibly be. When the Lockerbie terrorist was released, Obama was outraged. Outraged, I tell you!

‘The US was kept fully in touch about everything that was going on with regard to Britain’s discussions with Libya in recent years and about Megrahi,’ said the Whitehall aide.

‘We would never do anything about Lockerbie without discussing it with the US. It is disingenuous of them to act as though Megrahi’s return was out of the blue.

During the campaign, Obama said a great deal about earning back the world's respect and trust. Obviously the respect and trust of our staunchest ally is of little concern.

But then, any country that loves and supports the United States has little in common with Barack Obama. I'm sure it stems from the teachings of that great theologian, Reverend Wright... Love thine enemy... And anyone else who despises America... At least white America, anyway.

I wonder if the mainstream media will display any curiosity over what the President knew, and when he knew it.

My Time Selling Bibles in Georgia... And Dr Manning... Seen Below...

Well... I doubt this African American has the support of the NAACP. I know nothing about him, other that I'm confident he is currently branded an Uncle Tom.

He reminds me of Blacks I met back in the summer of '76, when I was a college student selling Bibles door-to-door in Georgia. The black families I met were proud, family oriented people who loved Dr King, but were not sold on the Left Wing ideas that accompanied the Civil Rights movement. I'm sure they had witnessed injustice but they weren't filled with anger or bitterness... They had lives to lead and children to raise and friends to enjoy. They were very religious... they almost always invited me in... and their biggest concern was as to whether or not my Bibles were the "Holy Bible"... which meant that they wanted the "King James" version.

I remember that I once sat on the porch in Newnan Georgia with a middle-aged black man, telling him about my goods, when a truck pulled up and unloaded a bunch of young black kids that were selling magazine subscriptions. A black kid, about my age, approached us and started talking to this man... Acting as if I wasn't there... And the middle-aged black man pointed to me and said, "He was here first." The kid sort of snarled and walked away.

I remember being invited onto the screened-in-porch of an old black woman who sat in her bed-clothes... She didn't see well, and when I showed her my sample "Large-Print Bible," she cried. She said, "I can't afford this Bible... there should be a way people like me should get this." I just handed my sample Bible to her and walked down the street.

It was a learning experience.

I'm sure "The South" has changed since 1976. The black families I met were intact, welcoming, and secure in their Christian heritage.

Anyway, I suspect Dr Manning is a dying breed. He is linked to a culture that valued God and Family.

I suspect that popular Liberalism has destroyed much of the character I loved in the Black Community in Georgia... The good people that took a wandering white college student "in" and made me feel welcome.

Manning Speaks Out About The Mack Daddy (Obama)

I try to look away... And find that I can't.
