God Needed a Caretaker for His Planned Paradise, So What Did He Make?

Enjoy Paul Harvey's Farmer commercial (via Conservative Videos).
God said, "I need somebody willing to get up before dawn, milk cows, work all day in the fields, milk cows again, eat supper, then [stay up] past midnight"
"To the farmer in all of us": Of course, in olden days, the caretaker God made would not have been a farmer per se, only (so to speak) an average citizen, an average human being. (Thanks, American capitalism, thank you, free market, for bringing that dreary life to an end…)

And while you're at it, think of the video the next time that you hear feminists bewailing how poor, abused, terrorized, slave-like women have been oppressed by cruel, clueless, unthinking, lazy men (95% of whom were farmers, needless to say) through the centuries…

And on the eighth day, God looked down on his planned paradise and said, "I need a caretaker." So God made a farmer.

God said, "I need somebody willing to get up before dawn, milk cows, work all day in the field, milk cows again, eat supper, then go to town and stay past midnight at a meeting of the school board." So God made a farmer.

God said, "I need somebody willing to sit up all night with a newborn colt and watch it die, then dry his eyes and say, 'Maybe next year,' I need somebody who can shape an ax handle from an ash tree, shoe a horse with hunk of car tire, who can make a harness out hay wire, feed sacks and shoe scraps. Who, during planting time and harvest season will finish his 40-hour week by Tuesday noon and then, paining from tractor back, put in another 72 hours." So God made a farmer.

God said, "I need somebody strong enough to clear trees and heave bales, yet gentle enough to yean lambs and wean pigs and tend the pink-comb pullets, who will stop his mower for an hour to splint the leg of a meadowlark."

 It had to be somebody who'd plow deep and straight and not cut corners. Somebody to seed, weed, feed, breed, and brake, and disk, and plow, and plant, and tie the fleece and strain the milk, . Somebody who'd bale a family together with the soft, strong bonds of sharing, who would laugh, and then sigh and then reply with smiling eyes when his son says that he wants to spend his life doing what Dad does. "So God made a farmer."

GUNSHOTS VIDEO: Obama, he goes a-shootin' all da time

Now, when the White House says "you shan't Photoshop President Shotgun", you obey, right? 
asks The Dissident Frogman.

And you make a video instead.

Complete with compositing, motion tracking and synthetic voice-acting. And guns firing, and explosions. And little birds singing too.
Go to DF's website to see the video.
In what is probably his most laughable feat of demagoguery to date, President BHO tried to control the damage he'd done running his big mouth with the release of a photo you're supposed to accept as a proof that he "goes shooting all the time"—and therefore it's perfectly OK if he decides to rule out the American people's natural right to do so.

At least that's out it looks like, seen from here.

The White House warned that this picture shall not be manipulated in any way (insecure much Barry?), and that's fine by me. Photoshopping news items is so Hezbollah '06. Every blogger and their dogs do it theses days.

Better go for video compositing, complete with music, and sounds, and explosions and little birds, and funny synthetic voice acting. The works.

No One Is Allowed To Doubt Barack Obama's put-me-(or-keep-me-)in-the-White-House-and-everybody-will-love-us Foreign Policy

"Hillary walked out of that hearing with Johnson's nuts in her briefcase.
Kerry chopped off his wienie the following day." 
That's the type of comment one could read on Huffington Post after Hillary Clinton's "What difference it make outburst, and which led me to reply thusly.
Are you #$^&@# kidding me?!?!

Reading liberal comments is mind-boggling.

What is it that we are being taught in American schools nowadays?!

Is political science 101 totally out the window, in favor of
"Compassionate Democrats, good; treacherous Republicans, bad"?!
"Whatever a Republican administration says must be mocked and opposed;
whatever a Democrat administration says must be taken at face value and never doubted"?!

Four Americans were killed — in the pursuance of their duty of implementing Barack Obama's put-(or-keep-)me-in-the-White-House-and-everybody-will-love-us foreign policy — and the only thing that people are concerned with, indeed obsessed with, is a Democrat in power taking on (and allegedly winning over) a Republican in opposition?!

You are not allowed —NOONE is allowed (how DARE they?!)— to put the word of Barack Obama in doubt or question the least of his policies, foreign, economic, or other.

Not least the mainstream media — thanks (sic) for quoting Soledad O'Brien, who was outraged about Ron Johnson's treatment of Hillary Clinton (how DARE he?!) but who has not seen it fit to question her, Obama, or anyone else about the Benghazi incident and that, for the past three months (unless it was of course to take the administration's excuses at face value).
I had more concerning the double standards involved:
You are not allowed — NOONE is allowed (how DARE they?!) — to put the word of Barack Obama in doubt or question the least of his policies, foreign, economic, or other.

Few seem even interested, intellectually speaking, of learning what happened that night:
the White House says there's nothing to talk about, so — since it is in Democrat hands — let's drop the matter…

How about playing the What If It Were Bush game?
What if the Benghazi incident, or something similar, had happened while Dubya was in the Oval Office?
What if Condi Rice had been the Secretary of State getting emotional, lashing out at entirely normal lines of reasoning from a senator (of whichever party), and shouting "What difference … does it make?!"
What if the media refused to press the case, especially in the days before the election?

Liberals are supposed to be smarter, more neutral, and more objective than those perfidious, clueless conservatives…

How about setting a standard, then?!
A standard that stays clear of… double standards?!
