Cheetah is Dead

He was a star of the silver screen during Hollywood’s Golden Age, but Cheetah, the original chimpanzee sidekick in Johnny Weissmuller’s “Tarzan” movies of the early 1930s, passed away quietly Saturday at a Florida primate facility. He was believed to be 80 and succumbed to liver failure.

Though some reports disputed that this was the original Cheetah, the chimp’s amazing longevity — a normal lifespan is usually about 40 years — helped continue his celebrity as did the continuing popularity of the MGM “Tarzan” series that starred swimming champion Weissmuller as Edgar Rice Burroughs’ loincloth-clad “King of the Jungle.”

We've lost many great actors this year... Harry Morgan, Jane Russell, Elizabeth Taylor... And now Cheetah.  I did a little research and learned that, in spite of an incredible body of work, Cheetah never received an Academy Award... Just like Cary Grant.

But we'll remember....

Ann Coulter on Illegals

Among the most effective measures against illegal immigration is E-Verify, the Homeland Security program that gives employers the ability to instantly confirm that their employees' Social Security numbers are legitimate. It is more than 99 percent accurate, and no employee is denied a job without an opportunity to challenge the records.

Although wildly popular with Americans -- including Hispanic Americans -- the business lobby hates E-Verify. Employers like hiring non-Americans because they can pay illegal aliens less and ignore state and federal employment laws.

Kowtowing to business (while pretending to kowtow to Hispanics), Ron Paul, Rick Perry and Rick Santorum oppose E-Verify. As a senator, Rick Santorum voted against even the voluntary use of E-Verify.

Only Michele Bachmann and Mitt Romney aren't trying to sneak through amnesty for illegal aliens. Both support E-Verify.

Coulter, shown above being interviewed by Peter Heck, feels that Obamacare and Illegal Immigration are the two issues in this election that will most effect the future of conservatism, and so the country.  She is a Romney supporter.

Deathbeds and Foxholes

Merry Christmas to all the atheists in the world... Especially the tedious ones who try to replace my Christmas expressions with Happy Holidays, Winter Solstice, holiday tree, and all the rest.

In honor of your outrageous and stubborn refusal to believe in God, I've decided not believe in you.

Besides, there is evidence that you don't exist.  I've heard that there are no atheists in foxholes.  I've heard of famous atheists on there deathbed praying to some generic god or shaking their fist at Heaven.

Eternity is in the heart of every human being.  And besides, I really think most atheists do not totally reject the concept of a Creator.  It's the Lordship of Jesus that atheists reject... Many lukewarm believers reject His Lordship, too... You can tell because they live as if their lives are their own.

So, I don't believe in atheists.

And it's Jesus who ticks everybody off... Well, Jesus and Tim Tebow.

The Married Minority

The Wasington Post-- Just 51 percent of all adults who are 18 and older are married, placing them on the brink of becoming a minority, according to a Pew Research Center analysis of census statistics to be released Wednesday. That represents a steep drop from 57 percent who were married in 2000.

 In 1960... when most baby boomers were children, 72 percent of all adults were married.

I blame myself.

Rush and Greta

In this interview from the 14th, Limbaugh is allowed to speak uninterupted for about 30 minutes.  He is allowed this format not because Greta is in any way conservative, but because Greta knows her ratings will skyrocket. 

Limbaugh's words are music to conservative ears, and I wish more of our candidates possessed his conservative principles and the talent to express them this well.

It is the best tea (and most expensive) on the market.  These are commercials that Rush Limbaugh listeners have made as part of a contest.

The Limbaugh owned company supports The  Marine Corps - Law Enforcement Foundation.

Quote of the Day

In America recovery begins with a declaration of dependence on Almighty God.  Recovery begins when we decide it's OK to offend a minority of people in order not to offend Almighty God.

Saturday Newt Fever

With Herman Cain suspending his campaign, I believe Newt Gingrich will gain supporters and achieve a double digit lead over Mitt Romney in national polls.  Also, I would be surprised if Cain didn't end up endorsing Gingrich.  This trend will most likely continue if other conservative candidates begin to drop out of the running.

Newt is saying the right things, mostly... But I still don't know who Newt is... Conservatives I trust aren't excited about his candidacy... 



Sounds like a good idea... Then get rid of unions, ObamaCare, and federal regulations, and we should be headed towards full employment!
