You’ve heard it by now, Hank Williams Jr (“Are you ready for some football?”) worked for ESPN for 23 years and they dropped him like a hot potato after an analogy he made on Fox News’ Fox & Friends comparing the so-called golf summit between Obama and House Speaker John Boehner as “one of the biggest political mistakes ever.” As Williams put it: “It would be like Hitler playing golf with (Israeli leader) Benjamin Netanyahu.”
Well political correctness may have cost Williams his longtime job with ESPN (Extra Stupid Programing Network), but it unleashed the artistic juices and the song he wrote in response (Keep The Change) shot to #1 in 48 hours and it’s still going strong.

While rummaging around in my top drawer recently amongst the undies, empty little boxes, spare buttons and stuff like that, I found a silver Star of David charm and I’ve decided to use it as a pendant for a necklace.
I am not Jewish, but you see, I think it’s time for us to think about Israel. Really consider what is happening in their world. It’s been going on for centuries, but it’s coming to a head again with Arab Spring phenom. These new found ‘freedoms’ won’t end up liberating people, but they are emboldening them to act on age-old, inbred beliefs and hate: Kill the Jews! But that’s only job-1. Next on the list is ‘Death to America’.
As Prime Minister Netanyahu stated recently when addressing the US Congress,
“In an unstable Middle East, Israel is the one anchor of stability. In a region of shifting alliances, Israel is America’s unwavering ally. Israel has always been pro-American. Israel will always be pro-American.
My friends, you don’t need to do nation building in Israel. We’re already built. You don’t need to export democracy to Israel. We’ve already got it. You don’t need to send American troops to defend Israel. We defend ourselves.”
By Mr. Obama’s many deplorable actions toward Israel since taking office, I am not sure he gets it, but support for Israel’s security is a wise investment in our common future. AND IT’S THE RIGHT THING TO DO!

OMG, what happened to that million dollar smile and open arms President Obama is so famous for?
Check out the body language. What I see from the President is anger, disgust, outrage, disrespect, indignity, rankle, insult and contempt as Prime Minister Netanyahu tells Mr. Obama,
“It ain’t gonna happen. Israel has to have certain security requirements in place to exist. Israel cannot be expected to negotiate with a government backed by the Palestinian version of Al Qaeda.”
The cameraman cannot even stand it. He has to pan in on the Prime Minister as Obama refuses to change his physical stance of defiance for the nearly 8 minute duration of this exchange. A-mazing!
