Om Mani Padme Hum

Matthew 25:40

And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.

Matthew 7 1-6

1. Judge not, that ye be not judged.
2. For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.
3. And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?
4. Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye?
5. Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye.
6. Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you.

Obama in Calif for Fundraiser

Watching KTLA 5 at 7am this morning. Obama flew in for ONE day, and created one hell of a traffic jam with his motorcade from LAX to the Beverly Hilton, and then again going to the fundraiser last night at some hollywood mogul's, (who I never heard of), house. First of all, I think he has a hell of a nerve, spending OUR money for a suite or probably floor at a place like the Beverly Hilton.  Second why didn't he just stay at the mogul's house as a guest? He's ok to help raise money, but not to be a guest at his house? Third he only raised a million dollars, it probably cost US that much, or more, for him to fly across the country in Airforce 1, stay at the hotel, and show up there.  What a waste. Who does he think he is, a King, an Emperor?  I'd think considering his responsibility for the state of the economy, he'd at the very least use a smaller plane, instead of that huge, thirsty, Airforce 1. The man is certainly caught up in using all the perks of the Presidency, too bad he's not as caught up in the job of the Presidency.

PS They just came back on Channel 5 and said the intersections around the Beverly Hilton are closed and Obama may be leaving shortly, his paranoia, or that of his security is astounding. Makes you long for the days before Kennedy when they weren't terrified of the people.


  1. "Makes you long for the days before Kennedy when they weren't terrified of the people."

    And we know how that turned out.

  2. Of course you know it wasn't the people in that, or in any case. It was an allegedly crazy, or for hire, person in the case of Kennedy, a zealot in the case of Lincoln, Garfield by a crazy, and McKinley by an anarchist. The terror that they feel, and that their security people feel stimulating the paranoid and excessive security measures only serve to seperate them from, and make them unnessarily fear their subjects, I mean people.
    These and the unsuccessful alleged attempts on both Roosevelts, Truman, Nixon, Ford, Regan, both Bush's, Clinton, and Obama by nuts of one type or another do seem to make the paranoia necessary, but as I said before if it's your time, you'll go if not you won't and all the paranoid security in the world won't make a bit of difference. All it does increase the certainty that they must be better than the people they rule, I mean serve.
