CLF's Got More Talent!!

Michelle's little Spencer is quite the pianist, but my grandson, Marvin, has made up a new Christmas poem. He was named after me so he might have inherited my writing talent. I went ahead and illustrated it for him.

Six Christmas Places.

Five Onion Rings.
Four Hummingbirds.
Three Friends.

Two Singing Turtles. (Just pretend there are two of them. I have exhausted my technical skills.)

AND One Left in a Pear Tree.

The CLF's Got Talent!!!!

Hey all. I was wanting to take a slight diversion from our usual high brow analysis of policy debates of the day. Michelle, who is currently at church, just texted me about her little Spencer....
Reg, chk U-toob. Surch "child prodigy plays piano". Spncr is soo talintd
Well, I immediately stopped what I was doing and went to the YouTube site. And to my great surprise it was little Spencer showing off his chops at tickling the ivory.

Tell me what you think of the youngest member of the CLF. Needless to say, Michelle is very proud of her little guy. I think its great, considering his past problems with outbursts of colorful language. I'm glad he's channeling that rage into more artistic endeavors. :)

A Refutation of Heathen Lies

Lately I've been going to lunch with various co-workers at my IT department. I used to eat out of my lunch box prepared every morning by my lady. However, since the recent layoffs, we have had several weeks of unpaid overtime, so a few of us have decided to take advantage of our 30 minute lunch break. Usually we head over to the nearby Subway as my lady wants me to eat healthy. I usually get the 12 inch meatball with mayo and spicy mustard. I keep away from the cookies most days as I am quite health conscious.

Anyway, our lunch time discussions have changed from friendly to heated. Mainly, its because a couple co-workers are misguided heathens. They prove their heathen-ness by their consistent refusal to admit America was founded as a Christian Nation.

I have tried my best to see the error in their ways, but even cold hard facts can't convince them.

I ask them "what part of 'In God We Trust'" do they not understand. They respond with some mumbo jumbo about that God put on money well after this country's founding and in the Pledge in the 1950's at the peak of anti-communist fever. I say, whatever, its on the money and in the Pledge, so you can't argue with facts. The inception dates do not matter, so case closed on that one.

Then they talk about how many founders were not even Christians, many were Unitarian or Deists. Well, I have never heard of Deists, so that does not change my views in the least. As for Unitarians, I didn't even know they were still around. I have been told they were a liberal church, so I don't see how they could be called Christian. Really, how can you be a liberal and a Christian? I'm sure others have had difficulty grasping this contradiction.

After destroying their arguments one by one, I directed these heathens to a very smart man by the name of David Barton and his excellent WallBuilders site. Mr. Barton has set out to spread the unerring truth that the founders were all evangelical Christians. He even has quotes and beautiful prints proving his points. Here's one of Washington ushering Lincoln up to Heaven..

Mr. Barton has some excellent quotes that are irrefutable. My favorite is one that has been put on the Jefferson Memorial. The important quote is in bold and large font. Don't bother reading the smaller font, its not important.
I promised you a letter on Christianity, which I have not forgotten. On the contrary, it is because I have reflected on it, that I find much more time necessary for it than I can at present
dispose of. I have a view of the subject which ought to displease neither the rational Christian nor Deists, and would reconcile many to a character they have too hastily rejected. I do not know that it would reconcile the _genus irritabile vatum_ who are all in arms against me. Their hostility is on too interesting ground to be softened. The delusion into which the X. Y. Z. plot shewed it possible to push the people; the successful experiment made under the prevalence of that delusion on the clause of the constitution, which, while it secured the freedom of the press, covered also the freedom of religion, had given to the clergy a very favorite hope of obtaining an establishment of a particular form of Christianity thro' the U. S.; and as every sect believes its own form the true one, every one perhaps hoped for his own, but especially the Episcopalians & Congregationalists. The returning good sense of our country threatens abortion to their hopes, & they believe that any portion of power confided to me, will be exerted in opposition to their schemes. And they believe rightly;
for I have sworn upon the altar of god, eternal hostility against every form of tyranny over the mind of man.
But this is all they have to fear from me: & enough too in their opinion, & this is the cause of their printing lying pamphlets against me, forging conversations for me with Mazzei, Bishop Madison, &c., which are absolute falsehoods without a circumstance of truth to rest on; falsehoods, too, of which I acquit Mazzei & Bishop Madison, for they are men of truth.
This quote makes it clear as day that Jefferson was a full blown Christian, which directly infers that this country was and is a Christian nation.

CLF - 1, Heathens - 0.

Case closed. Nuff said.

Sesame Steet Hates On Fox News! (hippies incognito)

Well I knew Obama and the Demoncrats were trying to indoctrinate our children all along. He pulled a fast one at that school function thing he was at, but now he's been able to infiltrate children's programming. And probably the most famous and longest running one of all time - Sesame Street!

“I am changing the channel. From now on I am watching ‘Pox’ News. Now there is a trashy news show.”

No surpise it also comes from one of the most government funded piles of garbage (hear that Oscar?!?) ever invented - Public Broadcasting. Sesame Street has taken our tax dollars for decades and brought us black puppets, gay puppets, and worst of all, long haired liberal hippy ones. It's the tree huggers that are bringing us down by allowing the rest of the trash get away with whatever they feel like.

So watch out. This is the plan behind Barack Hussein Obama's Administration. He's trying to make us all hippy liberals and socialists and fascists through our children at an early age. Just like McDonalds heavily advertises to kids...but I figured them out.

Just What the Tea Party Movement Needs

Hi all. Sorry I've been away, but I have had to work several days of unpaid overtime at my company's IT department. Seems we have a labor shortage, so us remaining employees must take up the slack of those deadbeats that were just laid off. Isn't that just typical? No wonder our management sacked them.

Anyway, I am back and wanted to get the CLF going again. Michelle, Marvene, Fuido, and Winston, I must say I am surprised at the lack of postings. Heck, even Oma has refrained from commenting. What's up?

Here's something that should get you fired up. Remember how much fun we had having Tea Party House Parties, watching Fox News all day on 9/12, and that trip out to the 7-11? Well here was someone who put his artistic bona fides into the Tea Party movement. Even if you are not into rap (Marvene) and refuse to listen to anything but Elvis (Marvene), I think you can respect true talent when you hear it. Listen....

This is how we'll reach the new generation. With authentic sounding music stylings. I can just imagine hearing this on 98.7 The Beat!!

Michelle, remember that country-western ditty you made about the April 15 Tax Day protest? We should totally do that!!!! I have been practicing the bass, ala Mike Huckabee. With your guitar playing we just need a good drummer to keep the beat. Barring that I have an old Casio that we could use. Fuido has a strong yet lilting voice that I think would make that chorus pop. Think about it.
