Chia Pet-sident Of the United States

It's been one full year since we elected Barack Obama into office as the 44th President Of The United States Of America.
When he was elected into office, the nation was full of hope and pride. We saw the worst of times and only prayed that President Obama could pave a path of recovery for us all.


In this first year we saw an ambitious man leading the way. He was bold and yet very human. He spoke kind and yet stern. We saw bailouts and talk of a national health care system. We saw and heard his supporters and we saw what is now called "The Year Of Hate" from some very resentful republicans and an even spiteful Fox News Network.

I wanted to write about our President in this posting. I knew I didn't want to post some heavy handed, criticizing account of Barack's first year. I figured that there was enough of that all over the news and other blogs. What I wanted was to make it a lighter post. I wasn't to sure of what it was going to be, and then I saw it!
I wasn't sure if it was a joke or if it was real and then I realized that it was the genuine article. It was a Chia Obama.


Now for those of you that aren't sure what a Chia is, I'll explain. The Chia is a clay like base that you spread "chia seeds" on. As you water it, the clay base is slowly covered with a growing leafy plant. In the 1980's, the Chia Pet became a national craze. Now the Chia company usually sells the Chia in the shape of a donkey but this year they out did themselves. Yes, it was real. It's the Chia Obama and it's only $19.99 at

Now this was my posting. Strange Obama novelties. So here are a few I've come across. If you know of any others, please put them in my comments section. Thanks and enjoy.

Yea, I agree, these are crazy products but I don't think he endorses them. I think it's more of a case of people trying to cash in on him.
