Big T's Pic of the Day

Here is an image that probably never made your morning paper.
The good work continues in Afghanistan.

Joe Biden is an Odd Choice for Obama.

Barack Obama announced Deleware Senator Joseph Biden as his VP running mate. This seems to be a odd choice for Obama, considering Biden once supported John McCain as a vice presidential choice for John Kerry in 2004.

And let’s face it; Biden isn’t known for his smooth talking, savvy off the cuff comments. In fact, he is known for his politically incorrect comments, for instance when he called Obama a “clean” black person.

In a February 2007 interview with the New York Observer Biden said, “I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice looking guy. I mean that is story book, man.”

Biden stirred up the pudding good and race pimp Al Sharpton was quick to show his distaste toward the comments telling Biden, “I take a bath everyday.”

However this is not the first time Biden has gaffed. How about in October 2007 when he told the Washington Post, --One reason that so many District of Columbia schools fail is the city’s high minority population… What??? Let a conservative say that and their career would virtually be over.

Here is another quote from Biden:

“In Delaware, the largest growth in population is Indian Americans, moving from India. You cannot go to a 7/11 or a Dunkin Donut unless you have a slight Indian accent. I’m not joking.” [Video here]

Then in this video we have Biden basically bragging that Delaware was a slave state and that he is not a Northeastern liberal…huh???

So here we have a man who blurts out what is on his mind, politically correct or not, at not the best of times. This has the potential to make the rest of this election season highly entertaining, but this had very little bearing in Obama’s decision to pick him as his running mate.

What Biden ads to Obama’s ticket is experience, particularly on foreign policy. He has, after all, been the head of the Foreign Relations Committee since June 2001. At the same time what Obama does not need is someone to emphasizes his own inexperience.

Which makes the Delaware Senator an even odder choice, considering in the primary it was Biden who harped on Obama’s lack of experience and said he was not ready to serve as president.

In my opinion, Obama has displayed a complete lack of confidence by choosing a Washington insider that has been in office longer than half of all Americans have been alive. So much for a campaign of change, looks like the same old thing to me.

Michael Phelps Sends Right Message to Children

Olympic swimming star and living legend Michael Phelps is going to be on a cereal box. No not the Wheaties box, but on Kellogs Frosted Flakes!

There is some sharp criticism comming from health experts out there that Phelps on the box of a cereal with this much sugar content is sending the wrong message to children accross America... Are they serious....You know what message Phelps sends to children accross America? Get off the couch, work and achieve your dreams!

It may be true Kellogs Frosted Flakes is not the typical "breakfest of champions," but "they are great" and so is Michael Phelps.

Big T's Idiot of the Week

The Karachi Kids A Must See Documentary!

I just finished the film and documentary “The Karachi Kids” and was frighteningly shocked! I was unaware so many American children were being taught in these madrassa schools of hate throughout Pakistan. The real scary part is they will return to the United States after being brain washed in the religion of the Taliban. This is a must see documentary and the most powerful film of the summer sure to bring attention to a much needed debate about radical Islam to the home front.

Imran Raza, a Pakistani-American filmmaker, takes you inside Pakistani madrassas to examine the root of this radical terrorist idealogy. While there Raza shockingly discovers two American brothers from Atlanta, Georgia. 18 months later in march of 2007 he returns for a six month stay in the dangerous city of Karachi, to not only find the Khan brothers, but up to 80 other American boys in the same madrassa.

It is estimated there are more than 600 American children currently being taught in madressas throughout Pakistan. Some learning a radicalized version of the Koran called Deobandism, religion of the Taliban. There is no math, science, English, history or other subjects. They are taught to live for death and all of life’s many pleasures come in the afterlife.

It’s a story that will show you a world of abuse, loneliness and transformation into radical Islam the Karachi kids go through while in these madrassas.

Big T's Suggested Reading and Viewings from around the Web

If Obama-Biden wins the White House, John Kerry could end up as the chairman of Foreign Relations Committee. Now that is scary!
Here is some good news. Illegal immigrants are returning to Mexico in record numbers.
Here is an article that says racism is the only reason McCain might beat Barack Obama. I am so sick of these articles…
Toyota is moving their Prius production line from San Francisco to Mississippi because the Bay area has to high of taxes and regulatory cost. I don’t blame them, I am surprised they didn’t just leave the country all together.
John McCain did not have to fire economic adviser Phil Gramm for his “American’s are whiners” comment. Gramm resigned. By the way, Gramm was right. We are a nation of whiners. Watch the Democratic National Convention this week for proof.
