All That She Wants is Another Baby by Ace of Base does not mean boyfriend, it means baby.

Some claim that in the song “All That She Wants” by Ace of Base “another baby” is synonymous with boyfriend (“Of course, baby means boyfriend”. *1).

Of course that is nonsense if you look at the lyrics to the song.

Look at:

She’s going to get you All that she wants is another baby
She’s gone tomorrow, boy.

How often is someone you would term of “boyfriend” “gone tomorrow”.

And look at:

“So if you are in sight and the day is right
She’s the hunter, you’re the fox
The gentle voice that talks to you
Won’t talk forever
It is a night for passion
But the morning means goodbye

So a one night stand is a “boyfriend”? Since when?

The meaning is what it says: she wants a baby, perhaps in order to collect welfare benefits in Sweden – which were quite generous at the time.


Joe Biden misunderstands the Constitution

Gwen Ifell asked in the Vice Presidential Debate:

Governor, you mentioned a moment ago the constitution might give the vice president more power than it has in the past. Do you believe as Vice President Cheney does, that the Executive Branch does not hold complete sway over the office of the vice presidency, that it it is also a member of the Legislative Branch?

Senator Biden’s full response:

Vice President Cheney has been the most dangerous vice president we’ve had probably in American history.The idea he doesn’t realize that Article I of the Constitution defines the role of the vice president of the United States, that’s the Executive Branch.He works in the Executive Branch. He should understand that. Everyone should understand that.And the primary role of the vice president of the United States of America is to support the president of the United States of America, give that president his or her best judgment when sought, andas vice president, to preside over the Senate, only in a time when in fact there’s a tie vote. The Constitution is explicit.

The only authority the vice president has from the legislative standpoint is the vote, only when there is a tie vote. He has no authority relative to the Congress. The idea he’s part of the Legislative Branch is a bizarre notion invented by Cheney to aggrandize the power of a unitary executive and look where it has gotten us. It has been very dangerous.

1. It is Article II, not I.

Obama creates ‘truth squad’

KMOV reports:”Last Tuesday without any fanfare, the Barack Obama campaign announced Jennifer Joyce and Bob McCulloch, the top prosecutors in St. Louis city and St. Louis County, were joining something called an Obama truth squad.”

Biden says higher taxes are patriotic!

After noting that wealthier Americans would indeed pay more taxes, Biden said, “It’s time to be patriotic … time to jump in, time to be part of the deal, time to help get America out of the rut.”

Joe, two questions for you:

First, how patriotic have you been in the past 20 years? Have you been paying extra taxes to be patriotic?

Theodore Roosevelt: Anarchist is the enemy of humanity

Theodore Roosevelt: Anarchist is the enemy of humanity

“When compared with the suppression of anarchy every other question sinks into insignificance. The anarchist is the enemy of humanity, the enemy of all mankind, and his is a deeper degree of criminality than any other. No immigrant is allowed to come to our shores if he is an anarchist; and no paper published here or abroad should be permitted circulation in this country if it propagates anarchist opinions.”

– President Theodore Roosevelt (April 9, 1908)

‘My Muslim faith’ – Barack Obama

On ABC’s “This Week” with George Stephanopooulos, September 7, 2008, after GS stated”The McCain campaign has never suggested you have Muslim connections.”

Senator Obama replied: “Let’s not play games. What I was suggesting — you’re absolutely right that John McCain has not talked about my Muslim faith. And you’re absolutely right that that has not come.”

After Stephanopooulos interrupted with “Christian faith,” Senator Obama changed what he said to “Christian faith.”

If you are Muslim, have you ever said “My Christian faith”? If you are Christian, do you ever say “My Muslim faith”? Or “My Jewish faith?” If you are Jewish, have you ever said “My Christian faith”? Or “My Muslim faith?”

You decide.  Not that his faith itself is a problem, whatever it is, honesty is the issue.  Faith is a personal matter between the individual and God.
