Internet chatter had led to speculation that it might be an urban myth — nothing more than clever digital trickery spreading via the Web.
But our friend Bob Collins at Minnesota Public Radio assures us he’s seen it with his own eyes:
There is a billboard along I-35 near Wyoming, Minn., with a huge photo of former president George W. Bush and this question: “Miss Me Yet?”
Now, the push is on to find out who paid to have it put up.
Bob says there’s no readily apparent claim of ownership on the billboard, so he’s heading back to the scene to see if he can find out who’s behind the message. He’s also got some local politicos looking into it. He’ll keep us posted.
At first glance, it would seem to be from some person or group who isn’t thrilled by President Barack Obama’s performance so far — unless it’s a more ironic message from those who didn’t think too much of Bush and want to remind voters about him.
Anyone out there know anything about where it came from? Tell us and we’ll pass the word to Bob. As he says, we could do a little crowdsourcing.

The National Tea Party convention was held this weekend in Nashville, Tennessee, and has, predictably, been a hot topic on cable news.
Tonight Bill O’Reilly took his turn, discussing the third party phenomenon/movement with Fox News pundit Brit Hume and offered a frank and candid assessment on some of the participants of the Tea Party movement.

In this post I highlighted the link between Barack Obama’s communist childhood mentor, Frank Marshall Davis and Chicago journalist Vernon Jarrett, father-in-law of senior Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett.
I cited the link as evidence that the communist networks that touched Obama in both Hawaii and Chicago were connected.
Vernon Jarrett and Frank Marshall Davis worked together in a communist front, the Citizen’s Committee to Aid Packinghouse Workers in 1948 Chicago-the same year Davis moved to Hawaii.

Apparently there is a big demand from the American public for “relevant and timely information” about global warming “to inform decision-making about virtually all aspects of their lives”–such a big demand, we need a new government agency to manage it. “By providing critical planning…

The lessons of history are very clear; and it is highly unlikely that Obama’s socialist mentors have not pounded this lesson deep into Obama’s intellect. As the recession deepens into a depression, the solution that has worked in the past is to engage in a war and begin a draft. It worked for Roosevelt, and Obama has attempted to model himself on Roosevelt’s mold. The opportunities for war are many, Sudan, Yeman, Iran, even N. Vietnam….

Google is set to establish a working relationship with the National Security Agency, the government spy force responsible for warrantless monitoring of Americans’ phone calls and e-mails in the wake of 9/11.
With influential proponents recently calling for a newly regulated world wide web, we got a preview of how that might look this past weekend after both Infowars.com and Prison Planet.com were completely blocked to many Internet users in New Zealand.
