So would Obama be a good Boy Scout? Let the Scout Law Decide!

A Scout is:

Trustworthy. A Scout's honor is to be trusted. If he were to violate his honor by telling a lie or by cheating or by not doing exactly a given task, when trusted on his honor, he may be directed to hand over his Scout badge.

OBAMA? NOPE he lies a lot.

Loyal. He is loyal to all to whom loyalty is due, his Scout leader, his home and parents and country.

OBAMA? NOPE- he actually hates this country and wants to remake it into a Euro-centric Socialist paradise.

Helpful. He must be prepared at any time to save life, help injured persons, and share the home duties. He must do at least one Good Turn to somebody every day.

OBAMA?- NOPE Help? What help? He does the oppistie of help everytime he can.

Friendly. He is a friend to all and a brother to every other Scout.

OBAMA- MAYBE- If you replace Scout with Democrat, this may be true.

Courteous. He is polite to all, especially to women, children, old people, and the weak and helpless. He must not take pay for being helpful or courteous.

OBAMA- NOPE He is rude to anyone that demands anything of substance in a leader. He panders to women, and old people and preys on the weak and helpless by keeping them weak and helpless and Dependant on government.

Kind. He is a friend to animals. He will not kill nor hurt any living creature needlessly, but will strive to save and protect all harmless life.

OBAMA- NOPE- He allowed the oil spill in the guilf to not only kill wildlife but also people's ways of life and living. Now to add more insult the moratorium could cripple the gulf states for decades.

Obedient. He obeys his parents, Scoutmaster, patrol leader, and all other duly constituted authorities.

OBAMA- NOPE- His Duly Constituted Authorities is the Constitution of the United States, and the people of the United States; both whom he ignores.

Cheerful. He smiles whenever he can. His obedience to orders is prompt and cheery. He never shirks nor grumbles at hardships.

OBAMA- NOPE!- He whines at every opportunity about how it's all Bush's fault, never taking any responsibility for himself. He snarled and made snide remarks to Senator McCain, when Senator McCain was trying to point out inadequacies in the Healthcare Bill.

Thrifty. He does not wantonly destroy property. He works faithfully, wastes nothing, and makes the best use of his opportunities. He saves his money so that he may pay his own way, be generous to those in need, and helpful to worthy objects. He may work for pay, but must not receive tips for courtesies or Good Turns.

OBAMA- HELL NO! He is the anti thrifty person who wastes not only money and property of the United States, but our good will that is harbored by our allies such as Israel, Great Britain, and Australia.

Brave. He has the courage to face danger in spite of fear and to stand up for the right against the coaxings of friends or the jeers or threats of enemies, and defeat does not down him.

OBAMA- Hell NO- Given the chance to fight to win in Afghanistan, he chose to hem-haw for 4 months, then give 70% of what was asked so that he could look moderately good to both the left and right. He has made a mockery of the United States, and the leaders of our enemy states openly laughs and mocks his impotence. See Korea, Iran, Venezuela, Pakistan, Russia.

Clean. He keeps clean in body and thought; stands for clean speech, clean sport, clean habits; and travels with a clean crowd.
OBAMA- NOPE- Smoking,and hangs with the dirtiest people on the planet; House and Senate Democrats, plus his own Cabal of Incompetents.

Reverent. He is reverent toward God. He is faithful in his religious duties and respects the convictions of others in matters of custom and religion.

OBAMA- NOPE- He may be faithful to HIS god, but he does not respect Jewish or Christian religions, nor the followers of the religions.

Pretentiousness, or just perturbing?

People that refer to their auto/bike by brand name usually annoy me in other ways also. "Well I was up in the mountains with my Porsche this weekend, and life was beautiful (in spite of my smallish penis)." 

I love Porsches. It is my favorite car, but unless I am specifically talking about the function of the automobile, with someone who would also be interested in such things, casually mentioning it in conversation is pretentious. 

An exception of this would be when talking to someone who would "understand". A friend of mine, whom I know owns a Porsche Boxster, asked me what I did this weekend, and I told him I went to Deals Gap on a Triumph Rocket.  The Rocket was not my normal ride, and a trip to Deals Gap (where he had already taken his Porsche, thereby with some understanding of the significance of the place). I also wanted him to ask me about the Triumph, and therefore baited him to do so, at which he of course asked me if we should put the vehicles through its paces, which we did. He couldn't hang with me on anything remotely straight, and his four tires versus my two on curves were better, plus, I wasn't going to push the envelope on a loaner bike.

Just my small opinion. Please return to your regularly scheduled program.
