Posts Tagged ‘red white and blue’

Late as usual, we all made it dressed in red, white and blue to our little podunk parade.  One of our elected officials also flies C-130’s, so we got a treat of a fly by at maybe 1500 feet overhead.  AWESOME.

Just one of thousand’s of parades, but the best part comes at the conclusion. The flag raising, playing of the National Anthem, and the 21 gun salute which sounded more like cap guns still all convince me that there is no greater country than America and how much a privilege it is to live here to be able to attend even a hokey ceremony.

The village mayor and a local Reverend did the speeches honoring all who have served and both reminded us that Memorial Day is about remembrance.  President Obama in another major gaffe had this to say- “On this Memorial Day, as our nation honors its unbroken line of fallen heroes — and I see many of them in the audience here today — our sense of patriotism is particularly strong.”  Dead people in the crowd, huh? 

Noting that Memorial Day is not Veteran’s Day – http://politicalderby.com/2009/05/25/obama-needs-to-google-memorial-day/ had this to say, “Hey, weren’t you the one that was considering a plan to make veterans pay for their medical treatment?  At any rate, I find it disheartening that he would lump us all in the category of ‘not paying respect to veterans’ to cover up his own shortcomings in that department. Newsflash Obama-wan: There are many of us who hold the utmost respect for those who have worn the uniform, served, and given his life for the cause of freedom. Many of us already celebrate Memorial Day (not Veteran’s Day) by honoring the brave men and women who have died to protect our freedoms and liberties. And there are many of us who would rather spend federal money on our military than converter boxes for digital television.”

“We at American Grand Jury are still asking the presumed president to stand up, become a man and quit hiding. Before you Mr. Obama are the charges of Eligibility and Treason. You speak of honor and integrity to the our fighting men yet you hide the truth from them as no president has ever done before.” http://www.oilforimmigration.org/facts/?p=1886

Our flags are flying, the pool is open, beers are cold, hot dogs ready, pasta salad made.  I wonder if the Obama’s will be eating Kobe beef burgers, maybe lobsters from Boston?  Salad from the thousand dollar organic White House Garden?

Americans are to observe the National Moment of Remembrance beginning at 3:00 p.m. local time on Memorial Day.  I wonder if  Janet Napolitano is worried about all those military extremists on this most special of days.

God Bless America.  Don’t get drunk and drive.

Reacting quickly, Cheerios- the best-selling cereal in the world, is taking advantage of the Obama administration’ s admonishment.  General Mills will be issuing a new cereal to be named Obama O’s, of course -in specially marked boxes.  In compliance with the FDA,  OBama O’s will have absolutely no health claims.  

Obama O’s cereal will be made with Stevia.   In marketing the new sugar, this new sweetener is derived from the leaf of an herb called Stevia.  Consumer demand for so called natural products continues to grow, even in this mind boggling deficit and season of bailouts.  The sugar alternative is also known as Truvia and PureVia.

Cheerios and OBama O’s couldn’t have bought the kind of advertising and commentary it is receiving after the FDA sent a letter to General Mills Inc.  The letter scolded the company for violations and gave it 15 days to change the claims that the iconic ‘Os’ may lower cholesterol and help to treat heart disease.

With Obama slipping a bit in the polls, his advisor’s felt this the right time to allow the release of OBama O’s to the nation.  The O’s in the New OBama O’s cereal will be dyed red, white and blue.  The dye will be similar to the renewable, vegetable-based inks that was used for coloring easter eggs on the White House Lawn.  Those toasted O’ s will remain their crunchy texture unless the milk come from injected rBGH- growth hormone cows. The FDA fast tracked its approval at the President’s request. 

Plans are in the works for OBama O’s to correspond to the ad campaign for the Olympic Rings. ““The Obama White House is playing an unprecedented role in the bid to bring the 2016 Summer Olympics to Chicago, with top adviser Valerie Jarrett spearheading an effort that draws on the international symbolism of his presidency,” Politico writes, adding that “the emerging effort by the White House is unusually pointed in its attempt to wrap the campaign around the president and his appealing image abroad.”

The Original design featured was during Presidential campaign.  In keeping with his Barack Star image, the boxes will now feature Michelle, the children, the dog and special guest  Bill Ayers, eating breakfast in The White House.  Ayers was invited in honor of the release of his latest book Race Course Against White Supremacy scheduled for release on Amazon.  http://www.amazon.com/Race-Course-Against-White-Supremacy/dp/088378291X/ref=cm_sw_em_r_dp_title_featured?ie=UTF8&tag=tellafriend-20 

While no one has ever seen President Obama’s birth certificate or medical records, by all accounts he appears fit enough to bow down to kings and most certainly presentable as setting a fine example of the American judicial and political system.   General Mills approached President Obama to lend his endorsement in lieu of a court injunction and or product seizure.  Obama O’s will be served at all state events. 
 
Obama previously said, “Why can’t I just eat my waffle?” –after being asked a foreign policy question by a reporter while visiting a diner in Pennsylvania.  Press Secretary Gibbs today, noted that in keeping with a great American Tradition, food products today aren’t as  healthy as its packaging leads shoppers to believe.

This is the change you can believe in.  Hope in every box?  Don’t choke on it. Satire of course.  photo props to http://www.thedieline.com/blog/2008/10/capn-mccains-ob.html
