Toward the end of the 19th century (1892), was the beginning of a unique emporium,
later located at Madison Ave. and 45th St. in Manhattan, that outfitted and catered
to a discriminating and adventurous clientele. Among them was Teddy Roosevelt,
Robert Peary, Ernest Hemingway, Amelia Earhart, the Duke of Windsor, Katherine
Hepburn, Clark Gable and other presidents and people of note, plus yours truly.
Abercrombie & Fitch was a landmark that fell in disgrace when The Limited took
over and dismantled an icon, replacing it with sickly fashions and advertising.
It doesn't make a difference what you pick off their rack. That item can be worn
by either sex.
This once unique store lost its identity as progressives are working to eliminate
the differences between sexes. Straying from political correctness, I see
it as a change from rugged to pansy.
There is a reason God created two opposite entities called male and female. Each
has its place and functions that follows throughout nature. In proper company
parlance ........the birds and the bees.
What is wrong in the world are persons who want to change this order. They are not
God nor nature to want to change or disturb the order, but pervasive bungling fools.
As a friend put it, they are seeking acceptance and approval for a kinky life style.
I may reconsider my view on same sex marriage when the male species can menstruate
and the female is concerned about her erectile dysfunction.
If we allow Hollywood, rappers, Ad men, Marxist academia and their likes more
leeway, there will be more Abercrombie & Fitch's in the future, falling by the
wayside and we will wake up one morning and say, "What happened?"

That was the phrase that was used by many Mafia thugs when they were questioned by authorities about their criminal activities. Well, it seems like the Obama Chicago thugs have adopted that phrase when they are questioned by the various Congressional committees. Some have called these tactics “selective amnesia” - could it be they have something to hide? Nah, according to our “Liar in Chief”, remember when he said he was going to have the most honest and transparent administration in history - well, how has that turned out?
What is so frustrating to the average American (not the Obama Zombie supporters), is that these government servants with the memory problems, are working for us, the taxpayers. Shouldn’t we expect that our tax money be spent on having competent people work for us?
Go on down the list. Starting with our “Liar in Chief”, Barack Hussein Obama, who claims that he doesn’t know who, what, when, or where, about anything that happens under his watch. He claims that he finds out things reading the newspapers or by watching T.V. Is he a lowly clerk in the White House or is he the President of the U.S.? He’s leading from behind all right.
Then we have our now former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who stated that she knew nothing about the lack of security in Libya and didn’t know the details about the attack on our compound in Benghazi where Ambassador Stevens and three other Americans were killed, except that it was a video that caused it. Well, by the way, it tuned out that the video had nothing to do with this pre-planned attack, it was a false statement. And, this woman wants to be our next President?
Then we get to the IRS scandal, where Lois Lerner, head of the IRS tax-exempt division, who instead of testifying about what she knew about the targeting of Conservative and religious groups applying for tax-exempt status, took the 5th Amendment about self-incrimination and refused to testify. As a result, she was suspended with full pay and benefits. Couldn’t that be called a paid vacation? Why doesn’t the President call for her resignation?
I almost forgot, but didn’t Attorney General Eric Holder claim in the Fast & Furious scandal that he didn’t know about anything important about the gun running operation with the Mexican drug cartels even though he is the Attorney General? And, just recently he claimed that he knew nothing about the Justice Dep’t. targeting of Fox News reporter, James Rosen, for a possible felony for reporting classified information. It was later revealed that he had signed off on it personally. Maybe it was Eric Holder who should’ve been charged with a felony, for perjury, not James Rosen?
All in all, the “selective memory” lapses, all seem to be orchestrated attempts to thwart the legitimate oversight investigations of Congress, which quite obviously, might embarrass the Obama Administration. It seems like Obama and his Chicago thugs have their fingerprints all over these scandals, and why not, that’s how they operate in the corrupt City of Chicago from whence he came and where he was tutored by the Chicago political machine.
Other than that, “I Don’t Know Nuttin”.

We were clearly warned, 237 years ago.
A number of the Founding Fathers who had a direct hand in writing The Constitution, expressed at that time, their reservations and concerns about the propensity for humans to act corruptly as they jump at opportunities to pander to their own selfish interests.
That gathering of patriots from the thirteen Colonies, had the foresight and the collective genius to create this most sacred document. It is their concept that they conceived, considered, debated and agreed to - hand-inscribed on a piece of parchment - that has successfully guided the leaders of our nation since that tumultuous time. Those patriots were exceedingly wise men. They knew human nature and they were prescient in their concerns.
Sadly for our nation, as this is written - greed, stupidity & self-indulgent behavior en masse seem to have become the order of the day. Unabashed avarice appears to have gained the upper hand over the so-called, ‘better angels’ of men. ‘Something-for-nothing’ now trumps entrepreneurship. ‘An honest day’s work for an honest day’s pay’ has become a laughable creed to deride and snicker about.
The question is, ‘How to overcome this seemingly insurmountable majority of people who are committed to immorally voting themselves more and more goodies – that are of course, paid for by somebody else?’
Silly me, I’m placing my faith in divine intervention by that same Creator to whom George Washington prayed on that freezing night in 1776, as he was preparing his rag-tag army to cross the ice-choked Delaware River and take the enemy by surprise. I pray for a reincarnation of that American icon. We desperately need someone who has the wisdom and the fortitude to lead this nation back into some semblance of its former sanity. We need a man of Washington-like character.
Is this one small miracle too much to ask?

The brilliant Bill Whittle examines the death of Trayvon Martin and trial of George Zimmerman.
The Left will have you think the acquittal of Zimmerman was one of the great civil rights injustices of our time.
Bill Whittle presents the facts to prove that the Left Wing in America is wrong again as usual.

I followed with intense interest, the Martin/Zimmerman case/trial and was eerily reminded that a ”Rush to Judgment” was the prime mover in bringing this case to trial. It became a political case not a judicial case, ever since the “racial hustlers” arrived in Sanford, Florida on their “black horses” to stir the pot of racial turmoil.
The State of Florida got seduced by these racial agitators out of fear of racial riots, unrest and property destruction. They caved in like a cheap camera and charged George Zimmerman with 2nd degree murder when the facts uncovered by the Sanford Police Dep’t. and the local district attorney, didn’t warrant an arrest. There was a lack of evidence from the git-go, but the “wusses” in charge of the state prosecutors office didn’t listen or they listened to the wrong people. The head state prosecutor, Angela Corey was the main culprit in bringing this case to fruition. Her two stooges, state attorney’s, De La Rionda and Guy, carried the water for her misguided attempt at justice. Their whole case was based on emotion and not facts, and the jury ruled in favor of the defense. Thank God!
The “poverty pimps” look for anything they can exploit racially to benefit themselves as “self-elected” black leaders. Look at some of the other “rush to judgment” cases that also had racial overtones. Remember the Tawana Brawley fiasco, the Yakel Rosenbaum killing in Brooklyn, the Duke lacrosse case in No. Carolina, and now the Zimmerman trial? What’s the one thing that was present in all these cases - yep, you got it right - the “Rev.” Al Sharpton was in the middle of all these proceedings preaching “white racism”. His partner in crime, Jesse Jackson, was also involved in stirring the pot of racial animosity among the black community and guilt-ridden white liberals.
The NAACP, now is petitioning our “racist” Attorney General, Eric Holder, to open a probe of George Zimmerman by using the federal government instead of the state government, as the vehicle to try to continue the “lynching” of George Zimmerman. It seems they can’t accept the will of the jury, that heard all the evidence, and found George Zimmerman NOT GUILTY for the killing of Trayvon Martin.
The case brought by the state prosecutors was very weak and the jury ruled that there was insufficient evidence to convict George Zimmerman of either 2nd degree murder or the lesser charge of manslaughter (a charge thrown in at the end to try to salvage the prosecutions case). Most legal observers agreed with the jury’s verdict. Unless the feds are pressured by these self-serving “civil rights” organizations and racist preachers, to bring charges in federal court, how do they expect to change the facts of this case? The facts are the facts and no amount of spin or obfuscation by the “racial arsonists” can change them. It would be a case of monumental vindictiveness by the feds to put George Zimmerman and his family through another gut wrenching trial.
This was a case of “rush to judgment” gone completely wacky by emotions rather than by logic, with complicity of the immoral main stream media who convicted Zimmerman before any testimony or evidence was presented in a court of law. Thank God that the jury upheld the law, in spite of others who wanted to undermine our judicial system.

We learned about the extravagant conferences and seminars in fun spots and
exotic venues, held by various departments in the Obama administration from
listening to the congressional hearings. The latest being the IRS indiscretions
and scandalous biased procedures, handling conservative tax status applications.
One wonders if these sessions involve marching orders to maintain job security,
by keeping everyone in step with the Obama agenda, democratic talking points
and lessons on how to stonewall congressional committees.
There are five points of contention still unanswered in each of the scandals,
with others yet undiscovered in queue.....What, When, Who, Why and How?
Fast and Furious, Benghazi, IRS, the DOJ's James Rosen/AP's false accusations
and first amendment violations all have a similar ring....the Three Monkey
Defense ....."I see nothing, I hear nothing, I say nothing!" Followed by the,
in your face middle digit response.
This is not a grass roots arrogance, but a well orchestrated and organized plot
from the top!
The administration under the direction of President Barack Obama, is running
our country like it is theirs, and Eric Holder's DOJ is another,
"Bad Day at Black Rock!" So, to get to the bottom of all of this, you
have to start seeing at it from the top!
Conservative writings from George Giftos
Islam is not a legitimate religion. It should be equated to insanity or an
oppresive, tyrannical form of a system of rule.
It promises virgins in paradise as payment for heinous acts. It delegates
women be in servitude, to pleasure the urges and needs of their husbands,
who are allowed as many as four poor souls to fulfill the chauvinistic egos
of stupid, ignorant poor excuses for men. It endorses honor killings if their
egos are bruised. It encourages these backward thinking followers of radical
Islam, to sacrifice their hapless sons to be human bombs, and brainwashes
them into thinking it is of great honor to give the life of their child
It would be a preferable fate for their little girls who have been promised to
dirty old men from birth, in marriage. The insanity of this so called religion
is proven when their Imams and Mullahs hide from danger, but teach their
congregations to go out and blow themselves up for the glory of their god,
because it will please him.
There is only one God, and He or She is not the Muslim image radical
sharia jihadists follow, whom they say demands the destruction of anyone
not accepting their interpretation of who God is.
The senseless murder of Lee Rigby, of the Royal Regiment of Fusiliers on a
street in London cannot be called a rational act.
Here in the states, we share these tragedies befalling nations infested with
Islamic ghettos; but our president refuses to label them acts of terrorism.
Suspect for cause of this omission may be due to his Muslim heritage.

That phrase doesn’t sit well with many people, but when you predicted that something would happen and it did, albeit against majority opinion, it’s hard to resist proclaiming the obvious, “I hate to say I told you so”.
Back in 2008, during the run-up to the presidential election, I, along with many others, pointed out that the front-runner for the Democratic nomination and the eventual Democratic candidate and presidential winner, Barack Hussein Obama, had a lot of personal baggage and that he would be a disaster for the future of our country. Well, it has been almost 5 years since that time and look what we are faced with today as a nation, scandal after scandal, with new revelations coming out almost on a daily basis. I guess you could say that the prescient remarks of Obama’s mentor, Rev. Jeremiah Wright, when he said, “the chickens are coming home to roost” seems to be coming true in spades (no pun intended).
When Obama was sworn in on Jan. 2009, he proclaimed that he would have the most honest and transparent administration in U.S. history. Starting with the ill-conceived 2,700 page “Affordable Care Act” (a/k/a Obamacare); followed by Fast and Furious (supplying guns to Mexican drug cartels); the disaster at Benghazi where our ambassador and three other Americans were killed; the IRS harassing conservative groups before the elections of 2012; the tapping of phones and e-mails of AP correspondents and Fox news reporter James Rosen; and the listening in on U.S. citizens under the Patriot Act, which was supposed to be used, like under the Bush Administration, for foreigners calling other foreigners; it seems that he no longer can lead the country as his credibility has practically been destroyed and most likely is not repairable.
Obama’s political career was nurtured in the corrupt City of Chicago. His rise to political prominence was less than honorable as he was noted for throwing fellow Democrats under the bus in order to clear his path to being elected within the City of Chicago and then the State of Illinois. His mentors in Chicago were nefarious characters like the Rev. Jeremiah Wright (noted anti-Semite and black liberation preacher), Bill Ayers and his wife Bernardine Dohrn (admitted domestic terrorists), Tony Resko (convicted felon), Louis Farrakhan (anti-white black Muslim leader), Valerie Jarrett (a known Chicago slumlord and presently his presidential advisor), and buddies David Axelrod and Rahm Emanuel (known ‘red-diaper babies”) etc. These contacts besides the fact that he was a silver-tongued, educated black, “clean cut and articulate” (Joe Biden’s words), moved him up the political ladder post haste, that eventually resulted in his winning the presidency in 2008.It seems like it has been downhill ever since.
Obama’s personal positives are slowly evaporating with the announcement of each new scandal, with more to come, as his leadership style has left him open to having a “trust” problem, even among some of his most ardent supporters. It’s almost like déjà vu Richard Nixon all over again.
The old expression of, “you can fool some of the people some of the time, but you can’t fool all of the people all of the time” applies in his case perfectly. I guess you can say that, “you can’t polish horse manure” no matter how hard you try.
Sorry liberals, I hate to say I told you so!

Barack Baby, we understand . . . really, we do.
You wanted to be the President because you longed to reshape this nation and to share your vastly superior insight into the sophisticated matter of governing the affairs of your fellow man plus - you wanted the bling that goes with the job. We understand. Really, we do.
You’d always been told how special you were and people had always smoothed the path in front of you because you were a “clean and articulate black man”, as you were once so lovingly described by your VP, His Royal Honkyness, good ‘ol Joe Biden. We understand him, too. Really, we do.
And, miracle of miracles – enough coerced members of labor unions, enough racists of all colors, and more than enough others who could smell ‘something-for-nothing’ a mile away, just gobbled up your ‘redistribution of wealth’ rhetoric. And you were off to the races. The Republicans found an empty suit to run as their candidate and ‘Voila’ Barack Baby, you became the President of the United States. Simple as that.
With the able assistance of ultra-leftist, Dumbo Democrap characters like Harry Reid, the Bela Lagosi’ of the Senate and Nancy Pelosi, the rattle-brained screed of the House, both operating under cover of darkness, things got done overnight, just like magic. A bit of bribery here, a bit of intimidation there; a string of appointed Czars beholden only to ‘The Anointed One’; some skullduggery here and a few end-runs around recalcitrant Republicans in the Congress there - - and ‘Voila’ once again, Barack Baby, you were on a roll – as unstoppable as a runaway freight train.
No one wanted to spoil the progression of your lunatic policies that were implementing the dreams of your Father’s Marxist-Communist ideology – unrealistic reveries that have put our economy onto the expressway to economic doom. All this is directly attributable to your mindless, overwhelming urge to punish the practitioners of the free-enterprise system and redistribute the nation’s treasure that simply doesn’t belong to you and therefore, wasn’t yours to give – but, you did it anyhow.
There’s not an awful lot you can do that you are not already in the process of doing to complete the destruction of our country. Once you have opened every door to our governmental structure to permit the entry of the evils of Islam’s Muslim Brotherhood, your treasonous work will be complete.
However, we do understand the terrible obstructions that constantly plague your progress:
1. Those damned patriotic Republicans in the Congress and -
2. Those really ridiculous Amendments to the Constitution of The United States of America.
We understand Barack Baby . . .really, we do.

Everyone I talk to seems to agree that “political correctness” is out of control and a severe detriment to our society, as it plays out today.
One area that that falls into this category is in what we call “insensitivity”. It seems that whatever you say today might just offend somebody else regardless of the subject or the innocuousness of what was said. All it takes is for someone to take offense, a very subjective claim, to say the least. We are becoming a nation of “victims” who are becoming overly sensitive about anything negative said about him/herself, his/her political party, his/her church, his/her gender or sexual orientation, his/her race or ethnicity etc., etc. It is especially true when it comes to race. A off-hand remark, said in public, that could be taken as a knock on someone’s race or ethnicity, is a prime target for the race-hustlers to jump in and stir up the cauldron so that they can run in to get publicity by claiming “racial insensitivity”, and by getting the “offending” party to apologize in the least and getting him/her fired in a worst case scenario.
Just in the past few years, a woman T.V. anchor, on the Golf Channel, said in jest to another pro-golfer that the only way for him and his fellow golfers to dethrone Tiger Woods, would be to “lynch him in the back alley”. Her sin was trying to be funny and clever at the same time. She had no animosity towards Tiger Woods or to blacks and minorities in general. Her poor choice of words was sloughed off by Tiger Woods as a non-racial remark and he said it was no big deal. He is a personal friend of the anchor. Not good enough for one of the “Rhyming Reverends”, Al Sharpton. He got involved and the charges of “insensitivity” and “racism” were inserted into the debate, and the weak-kneed T.V. station suspended the T.V. anchor for two weeks when all that should’ve happened was for them to accept her apology and Tiger Woods acceptance of it and then move on.
In my former career as a classroom teacher, I had a couple of occasions when “political correctness” put me in a vulnerable position. In my role as a business education teacher, I had this student, let’s call him Lenny, in my class. He was an African-American who lived in a Catholic sponsored Home for Inner City Kids. Well, Lenny enrolled in my marketing class and performed very well on his tests, his homework assignments, and in his
class participation. I gave him an “A” for the first marking period. The second marking period happened to coincide with the basketball season. Lenny was on the basketball team. During the second marking period Lenny failed the class tests, and cut classes regularly. As a result, I gave him an “F” on his report card. When Lenny received his report card, he became irate and ran down to see his guidance counselor. Lenny said to his guidance counselor that he thought that Mr. Lehmann was prejudiced against black people because he gave me an “F”. The guidance counselor, took his report card and looked at it. He asked Lenny, “What grade did Mr. Lehmann give you in the first marking period”? He said, “He gave me an “A”. “Well”, said the guidance counselor, “What color were you then when he gave you an “A”? Case closed because the charge was bogus, but I had to answer the charge which put me in a position to prove my innocence. In today’s PC climate, I might have lost my job if the “race hustlers”, Al Sharpton or Jesse Jackson, decided that I was “guilty” of being insensitive or worse to this black student.
In another case, a girl received an F from me because she failed the class tests and cut class on a number of occasions. Upon getting her report card she reacted negatively and ran to my Dep’t Chairwoman, complaining that Mr. Lehmann was prejudiced against non-Jewish students for giving her a failing grade. The chairwoman, a Jew herself, looked this student in the eye and said, “Did you know that Mr. Lehmann is not Jewish? Suppose I was Jewish, would this bogus charge have had any more validity? Maybe only in the eyes of the P.C. police, who are unelected busy bodies and self-proclaimed arbiters of right and wrong?
This craziness has got to stop. Is that being politically “incorrect”? You make the call.

There is a tragic story in an online blog which details how two gay men in Australia paid $8,000 to a Russian woman to act as a surrogate for a child they wished to adopt. The details can be found by Clicking HERE.
At the time the Australian newspapers gushed over how wonderful these men were. However, it turns out the real purpose of the adoption was to sexually exploit the child. The sexual abuse began just days after he was born and continued for over six years. In that time the couple traveled the world offering the child up for sex with men and recorded the abuse by uploading film footage to an international syndicate known as the Boy Lovers Network. The pair brainwashed the child to believe sexual abuse was normal and to deny any of it if questioned by authorities.
The men live in L.A., California - what a surprise - and when the authorities began to investigate them they, of course, claimed the investigation was caused by homophobia. On Friday the couple were convicted of their crimes. One individual was sentenced to 40 years in prison and ordered to pay $400,000 in restitution to the child. The other individual is waiting sentencing.
Recently we have seen nothing but positive reaction in the media to the Supreme Court ruling on same sex marriage. What are the odds a story like this will ever make the same news media?
