  • I love this! There might be insignificant similarities between Lincoln and Obama but when it comes to what counts, Obama will never be able to fill his “hero’s” shoes as a human being, much less as a president.

  • Is that “Obama is a skinny lawyer or a skinny liar?” Could’t quite make that out…

  • Same on you!!!!!!

  • It’s sad that the Honorable Resident Abe Lincoln was assinated.Can’t say much good for ubama!

  • Now thats funny.Yeah we can all see the resemblance…skinny….The only lesson to be learned from all this is that the suceeding of the states from the union at this point will not prove to be good ,but, harmful.That civil war will most likely occur here soon.And that there will probably be an assasination attempt…I wouldnt suggest that this makes the 2 men alike…only history to repeat it self in some way…By the way I love President Lincoln………thats it…

  • Lincoln was a Liberal…Obama is a Liberal

    Lincoln was Pro-Government…Obama is Pro-Government

    Lincoln was for Minority Rights…Obama is for Minority Rights.

  • Lincoln was a good president but he was no George Bush!

  • obama is from kenya not illinois…..

  • Worsham Abbott

    Lincoln was a malignant chimpanzee who believed in the DC empire. Obama is a malignant chimpanzee who believes in the DC empire. Seriously, why do Yankee conservatives always trot out this avowed enemy of the Southern People when Southerners are the backbone of what is left of the conservative movement? Why sow divisions within the ranks? SOUTHERNERS DO NOT VIEW YOUR GOD LINCOLN AS ANY SORT OF HERO.

    Loyalty and Enmity: Parallels between Islam and the Mafia

    Editor’s note: The following is Part Two of a three-part series examining the many parallels between Islam and the mafia following Bill Maher’s recent exclamation that Islam is “the only religion that acts like the mafia, that will f***ing kill you if you say the wrong thing, draw the wrong picture, or write the wrong book.” Click here for Part One.

    Death to Traitors (AKA “Apostates”)

    Once a Mafioso takes the oath of loyalty to the mafia—including the Omertà code of silence and secrecy—trying to leave the “family” is instantaneously seen as a betrayal and therefore punishable by death. Any family member, great or small, is given authority to kill the traitor, the “turncoat.”

    ‘LGBT’: The ‘T’ Is For Tyranny

    Tranny tyranny. Strike that. “LGBT” tyranny. Lesbian, gay, bisexual tyranny. That, generally speaking, is what’s on display in Houston right now. But trust me: Unlike Vegas, what happens in Houston will, most definitely, not stay in Houston – not if Democrats continue to have their way.

    Houstonians elected themselves, as mayor, an extremist lesbian Democrat (but I repeat myself). She quickly, and quite naturally, took to doing what extremist lesbian Democrats do. Annise Parker is her name, and spreading political Ebola is her game. That and trampling the U.S. Constitution. As you’ve likely heard, Parker’s office has illegally subpoenaed the sermons and privileged communications of a number of Christian pastors who vocally opposed the city’s ironically branded “Equal Rights Ordinance” (aka, the Houston Bathroom Bill).

    Muhammad and Islam’s Sex Slaves

    Once again, Islamic State Muslims are pointing to Islam in order to justify what the civilized world counts as atrocities.

    According to an October 13 report in the Telegraph,

    Islamic State jihadists have given detailed theological reasons justifying why they have taken thousands of women from the Iraqi Yazidi minority and sold them into sex slavery.

    A new article in the Islamic State English-language online magazine Dabiq not only admits the practice but justifies it according to the theological rulings of early Islam.

    “After capture, the Yazidi women and children were then divided according to the Sharia amongst the fighters of the Islamic State who participated,” the article says.

    Texas Water Pump Builder, Gator Pumps, Is Helping Panama’s Rice Farmers

    Changing weather patterns and unusually dry conditions are having a serious impact on rice and sugar cane production in Central America and El Niño year is certainly living up to its reputation. The continuing delay in rainfall will undoubtedly reduce the yield and quality of this year’s rice and sugar cane crops in several areas of Central America. When combined with an equally harsh La Niña winter, perhaps the greatest impact will be within the important bridge countries that connect [...]
