Wombat Helps the Journalists Do Their Jobs.

Here's what they reported:
Israeli naval commandos stormed a flotilla of ships carrying aid and hundreds of pro-Palestinian activists to the blockaded Gaza Strip on Monday, killing at least nine passengers in a predawn raid that set off worldwide condemnation and a diplomatic crisis.
Here's what they should have said (since it's much closer to the truth):
After repeated warnings to a flotilla of six ships carrying aid to the blockaded Gaza Strip on Monday, one of those ships refused to change course and as a result was boarded by a team of elite Israeli naval soldiers. Once the Israelis boarded the ship, they were attacked by dozens of activists wielding steel pipes and knives. Four of the Israeli soldiers were wounded and several had their weapons taken by the activists who then began firing upon the soldiers. Nine of the activists were killed in what was described as "self defense" by the Israeli soldiers.
Basically 6 of one, half dozen of another. As long as you don't know how to count or what a "dozen" means.

Gringomask.com Apologizes to Whites Everywhere.

Caucasians everywhere were outraged at Gringomask.com's use of these insulting and defamatory images of innocent white people who were subjugated and derided when their faces were used on these cardboard cutouts. The masks were intended to be used by Arizona residents wishing not to be racially profiled.

It's bad enough that they hold the better jobs, receive better pay, live in better homes, have higher IQs, have lower incidents of incarceration, and suffer significantly reduced acts of domestic violence to name a few of the injustices. As a result of their protesting the offensive use of the word "gringo", Gringomask.com issued a lengthy apology on their website and removed any indication of the offensive content. Clearly, white people have suffered enough discrimination and oppression at the hands of non-whites the world over and implored Gringomask.com to remove the offensive content. Gringomask.com is only the latest offender in what can only be described as a plague of unfair treatment that has gone on since the dawn of time.

Their apology is all that remains on their site. I am personally relieved that they did this. I don't think my sensitive racial identity could have handled much more of this abuse.

Thanks to your involvement, the GringoMask has achieved its primary objective to raise awareness of the potential for racial profiling by enforcement of Arizona SB 1070. GringoMask was not a commercial product or intended to be a long term project, but a piece of satire to promote discussion and thought.

In addition to raising awareness, the mask was used to promote dialogue between people of different opinions in the hopes of arriving at better solutions than SB 1070, and to show solidarity with Americans of every race and color across the country that found this law unfair in its targeting of a specific ethnic group even if only implicitly. We chose this mask because of its light-hearted nature and tongue-in-cheek approach much in the same vein as Jeff Foxworthy's shtick "You Might be a Redneck" or Carlos Mencia's "beaner" jokes. However, we in no way meant to offend anyone.

We understand from your responses that some people might equate the word "Gringo" with an ethnic slur. We do not. It is simply a slang term used to describe Caucasians, and we don't assign any negative connotations to it. In fact, the mask communicates that looking this way will keep you above suspicion of being an illegal immigrant in Arizona, a positive thing not a derogatory one. We hope everyone will view the mask the way we do...a comical tool to convey a message and raise awareness about an issue that is important to all Americans. If the campaign has been taken in a different light by some, we sincerely regret the misunderstanding.

Thanks for voicing your opinions and helping to get the dialogue going.
We look forward to a better solution to the illegal immigration problem.
Damn RIGHT you apologize. NOBODY oppresses whitey and gets away with it!

Responsible Reporting.

Arizona's immigration law has sparked outrage amongst many communities across the country. The law gives police the right to arrest anyone whose immigration status may be in question.
 That's it. That's the extent of their explanation of Arizona's immigration law. Anyone reading that article and only that article would leave thinking they understand the law but really having only part of the truth. Get enough of those type of people together and pretty soon you have people voting for things they don't understand.

Of course, this isn't the media's fault or responsibility. They only use their power to evoke change and advance their ideology report the news without filtration of any sort.

The rest of the article here.

It occured to me ...


The media is leading everyone to believe that they won't be able to stop the oil leak in the gulf until August. Hmmmm ... Huge oil slicks ... Hurricanes ... New Orleans (still below sea level.)

I wonder if Obama and the Democrats have had people feverishly working on those levies in New Orleans since they got super-majorities in congress.  I wonder if they have arranged for plenty of boats and booms and oil vacuums.  I wonder if they have approved any burning of oil off the surface of the sea -- or whether they have banned it ... you know ... cuz of the pollution.

I'm not sure of any of the above but I do know one thing for sure ... THEY HAVE THEIR JACKBOOT ON THE THROAT OF BP!!  Rest easy, America, Obama's in charge.

Woops, it ended badly - what a shocker!


A few days ago some "peace activists" set out to try to break the Israeli sea-blockade of Gaza.

Excerpts:

Israel says the activists attacked its commandos as they boarded the six ships taking tons of supplies to Gaza, while the flotilla's organizers say the Israeli forces opened fire first.

U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon condemned the violence, saying, "I am shocked by reports of killing of people in boats carrying supply to Gaza. I heard the ships were in international water. That is very bad." He called for a "thorough investigation."

Yes, we need a thorough investigation.  We MUST find out HOW this could possibly have happinked ... it's a real mystery ... a head-scratcher to be sure.

The raid, in which at least 10 pro-Palestinian activists were killed, was a new blow to Israel's international standing at a time when the West — including the United States — have grown frustrated with its stance in the peace process. More here 

I notice that nobody ever "grows frustrated" with the terrorists' "stance in the peace process" ... no matter HOW many bombs they lob into Israel.  Ever see any "peace activists" demonstrating against the terrorists who were lobbing the bombs ... every day ... for months and months?  No?  Me either.

In case you missed the beginning of this "saga" you can click here for more info but, suffice it to say, these people begged for it. 

Remember when the terrorists in Gaza kept lobbing 100 bombs a day into Israel?  Well, the juice got tired of it and handled the situation.  Do you recall any point during the daily bombings when UN "called for peace and restraint" from the terrorists?  No?  Neither do I.  Anyway, part of the solution to the problem of Gaza terrorists is a sea blockade to stop the flow of weapons etc into Gaza.

So these "peace activists" got a bunch of boats together to "break the blockade."  Ok, this was bad idea the last time they tried it and I believe people terrorists were killed in that attempt as well.  Perhaps they mistook Benjamin Netanyahu for Barack Obama a navel-gazing hippie.

Smart businessman, Steve Wynn, makes the call


Hey - that "Cage Fighting" is some good entertainment, no?


A U.S. cage fighter ripped out the heart of his training partner while he was still alive after becoming convinced he was possessed by the devil, it was alleged today.

Jarrod Wyatt also cut out Taylor Powell's tongue and ripped off most of his face in a brutal assault that police said looked like a scene from a horror film, officers said.

They claim they found the 26-year-old standing naked over his friend's body with parts, including an eyeball, strewn around the blood splattered room in Klamath, California.

Wyatt allegedly told police he had drunk a cup of tea spiked with hallucinogenic mushrooms and became convinced Powell was possessed. More gruesome details here:  And if that isn't enough for you there's  MUCH MORE here:

I guess a normal person would conclude that his cage fighting days are over.  I sure hope he doesn't spend long in prison, don't you?  If he got out and moved into my neighborhood I think I'd have to inform him that the person responsible for his release looks kind of "devily" to me.  I'd also get a concealed carry permit ... capisce?

Can libs really teach conservatives something?

So this guy (Frank J) over at IMAO is usually pretty funny. I wandered on over to his blog today and what's the first thing I see:

As a treat for Memorial Day Weekend, I have a new article up at Pajamas Media. Liberals keep worrying about how conservatives’ extreme rhetoric could lead to violence, but they never seem to use introspection to draw on their own experiences with extreme rhetoric when making those arguments. It’s almost like they want to be pestering instead of effective.

So I hops on over there and reads the article ... funny stuff ... but true.  I took the liberty of taking some excerpts from the article for your perusal.  The rest is at the link in the above block quote.

Could the overheated rhetoric of tea parties lead to violence? This is apparently a big concern of many liberals these days. Thus, they warn us over and over that we have to watch what we say and how we say it, or people could get hurt.

Bill Clinton recently brought up the Oklahoma City bombing, because if only people hadn’t talked so much about reducing government and hating taxes, Timothy McVeigh would have traded in terrorism for being a gender studies professor.

Conservatives don’t seem be to listening. Perhaps it’s because the left’s message of “You know that rhetoric of yours that is murdering us in the polls? You have to stop it, because theoretically it could lead to violence” just seems a wee bit opportunistic.

Basically, liberals are all starting to believe their own rhetoric about the right being unhinged, and it’s making them unhinged. Joe Klein recently raised the specter of sedition in relation to Sarah Palin and Glenn Beck. Soon, we’ll probably hear liberals saying, “Conservatives are becoming just like Nazis! We need to round them up and put them into camps to stop them!”

So, again, the keyword is “introspection.” Liberals have a lot to teach conservatives about the dangers of letting political rhetoric go too far, but they need to have the humility to take an honest look at themselves if they want conservatives to listen. But should conservatives be more introspective before criticizing liberals’ behavior? Of course not; we don’t have time for navel-gazing. What are we? A bunch of hippies?

Hey, on another subject, I also found this at IMAO.   It was another Frank J post wherein he says "It's like Reagan ate Limbaugh."  Here's New Jersey governor Chris Christie, kicking some more ass.  I'm starting to love this guy.

Major economic damage - Obama is up to the task


May 28 (Bloomberg) -- U.S. stocks slid, capping the worst May for the Dow Jones Industrial Average since 1940, while the euro slumped and Treasuries rose as a downgrade of Spain’s debt rating and escalating tensions on the Korean peninsula triggered a flight from riskier assets.

The Dow tumbled 122.36 points, or 1.2 percent, to 10,136.63 at 4 p.m. in New York and lost 7.9 percent this month. The Standard & Poor’s 500 Index sank 1.2 percent to 1,089.41, led by financial shares on the Spanish downgrade and energy companies after U.S. President Barack Obama extended a moratorium on new deep-water drilling. More here 

Atta boy, Obama ... you and the Democrats have crushed the economy and now you're going to ... STOP THAT EVIL DRILLING!!  I heard he was going to stop us all from driving the next time someone got in an accident.  He's cautious that way.

Lucky for us though, Obama's keeping his boot on the throat of the evil BP.

"We will keep our boot on their neck until the job gets done," U.S. Interior Secretary Ken Salazar told reporters after touring affected areas of the Gulf coast with Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano and a group of U.S. senators."
 
White House press secretary Robert Gibbs was asked about President Obama's approach to BP. "I point you to what [Interior] Secretary Salazar said about -- I think the phrase was -- at least the phrase I heard earlier in the week with him was to keep the boot on their throat
 
Soooo, everybody relax, the Obama administration has its boot on the throat of "big oil."  Yes, he's up to the task ... or ... he's up to SOMETHING ... what could it be?

Bill Maher - lefty genius


HBO's Bill Maher: "I thought when we elected a black president, we were going to get a black president. You know, this [BP oil spill] is where I want a real black president. I want him in a meeting with the BP CEOs, you know, where he lifts up his shirt where you can see the gun in his pants. That's -- (in black man voice) 'we've got a motherfu**ing problem here?' Shoot somebody in the foot." Video at Real Clear Politics:

Wow, at first I thought that was an outrageous racist remark but I guess it isn't.  You  want to know how I know? Easy ... if it were, the media would be going apeshit.

You may have seen this already, if not, it's pretty good

George Lopez gets in some good ones


Catching up on an item from the Thursday, May 20, The View on ABC, comedian George Lopez appeared as a guest and made a few anti-Sarah Palin cracks as he joked with the group about the new immigration law in Arizona, asserting that if Palin were to become President, he and other Latinos would flee the country: "This is the answer to immigration, I'm going to tell you right now. This is how to get every Latino to go back to where they came from: Elect her President in 2012. ... We will leave voluntarily. We'll leave. We'll go voluntarily and take Canadians with us."  Ha ha, funny stuff, Lopez.

He soon joked about Palin fitting the "profile" of a Latina: "Sarah Palin needs to be careful because she fits the profile of a Latina. ... Her and her daughter have a kid the same age. ... She works and her husband don't. ... She talks a lot of smack and he don't say one word. That's very Latino. But he's a stay-at-home dad. Where I come from, if you're a stay-at-home dad, your ass is unemployed." More at NewsBusters

Ok, those really WERE good ones.

Jews vote for anti-semites then wonder what went wrong


JERUSALEM -- White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel got a hot welcome to Jerusalem's Old City Thursday.

Arriving to celebrate his son's Bar Mitzvah, President Obama's right-hand-man was heckled by far right-wing Israeli activist Itamar Ben-Gvir.

"You are an anti-Semite, a hypocrite who hates Israel!" Ben-Gvir shouted. "You want Israel to return to the 1967 borders. Shame on you!"

Many Israelis feel betrayed by Emanuel, whose father is Israeli. They blame him for what they see as President Obama's anti-Israel policy. More here:

I mean, just because Obama's best buddies (Jackson, Sharpton, Reverend Wright) are anti-semites is no sign Obama is too ... right?  No need to jump to conclusions ... right, juice?

My heart breaks for the juice ... NOT!  Hey ... JUICE ... KEEP VOTING FOR LIBS!

Are YOU a NASCAR fan? Can we try to draw conclusions?

So I was taking this Zogby poll and they ask some really weird questions.  Some of the questions don't allow a proper answer.  In some of them, whatever answer you give looks like you support government intervention in something or other.  Some of them are heavily slanted.  Here's a few of the questions.
 
LMAO - "a resident of the planet Earth."  Kumbaya, my lord, Kumbaya.

Now what are they going to do with this "NASCAR fan" data?  They probably want to make NASCAR fans look smart, don't you think?

Your public learning institutions

Excerpts:

A public community college in California (Orange County's Santa Ana College) has set up a scholarship fund for immigrant students — including illegal immigrants. The $2,500 scholarship has sparked anger by some, including at least one lawmaker who is threatening to cut off federal funding to the school.

Weidner repeatedly emphasized to FoxNews.com that no public funds would be used for the scholarship.

But Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, R-Calif., whose district includes the taxpayer-funded Santa Ana College, says that isn't quite true — because the scholarship diverts resources from Americans in need of education funds.

"The fact that a public employee of a public college is seeking to circumvent immigration laws is problematic," he told FoxNews.com. "The fact that it's being associated with a public institution means there's public funds involved: If you have a fund being operated by public employees, it's public." More at FOXNews:

I just have one thing to say: What the hell are these people trying to prove? I mean does EVERYTHING they do HAVE to bring America/Americans down?

I have an idea -- let's go hassle the juice


NICOSIA (AFP) – Hundreds of activists braced on Friday for the final leg of their attempt to bust the Gaza Strip embargo, a bid Israel vowed to defeat, as each side accused the other of violating international law.

Two cargo ships and five smaller boats loaded with thousands of tonnes of supplies and hundreds of passengers steamed towards a rendezvous off Cyprus where they planned to group before setting out for the Palestinian territory. More here:

Ha ha - last time these idiots tried this, people got hurt. Apparently the pain was not acute enough for them to have learned their lesson. So I guess they're going to try again.

It's interesting to me that these people have nothing better to do than this. Do they have jobs? Or is being an "activist" their job? (That's rhetorical.) It's only obvious that this bunch of scumbags is being paid to start trouble.

I wonder how long it will take them to confront the juice? I can't WAIT for the outcome to be published. I sure hope it doesn't end in tragedy, don't you?

Perhaps I should call them on the phone and give them some advice. "Hey, don't go down there screwing around with the juice without any money ... you're just ASKING for it ... you'll see!!"

Who Is John Galt?

THE PRESIDENT SAYS you’ve got enough money. “During a conference at which I just spoke, the owner of several companies showed me a pair of cufflinks he’d just had custom-made, engraved with the words ‘Who Is John Galt?’ If the president isn’t familiar with Ayn Rand’s Galt, he might want to read up. This business owner said the cuff-links were the last item other than absolute necessities that he would buy until Obama was an ex-president. He said he was sending out a letter to the restaurants and shops he patronized, his dry cleaners, the service companies that tended his lawns at his homes – over 200 different business owners – letting them know that President Obama had determined he was making too much money and was too rich for reason. Therefore, he was going to cut sales and production at his companies by half, himself work but one day a week, cut business spending to the bone and personally buy nothing – other than vacations out of the country – until the president exits.”

Rhode Island House speaker kills immigration bill

Uh... Rhode Island? They have an immigration problem? Really?

"House Speaker Gordon Fox has decided not to take up the bill, a spokesman said Tuesday, because the speaker believes immigration matters are best handled at the federal level."

He does? Is that what he believes? Who gives a flying FUCK what he believes? This reminds me of a CT housewife deciding to "stay out of" the whole debate about inner city gang warfare. I mean, this guy has no fucking clue in the WORLD what AZ is experiencing and he's going to take a stand that it should be handled by the feds and not the states. Of course CNN gives it a full page article because "this is newsworthy". No- it's NOT. It matters about as much as a 5th grader's opinion of whether or not children should be allowed to have candy for breakfast and to stay up as late at night as they want to.

"The State House became the latest battleground in the nation's racially charged immigration debate. On Thursday, about 100 demonstrators chanted slogans and called on the bill's sponsor, Democratic State Rep. Peter Palumbo, to resign."

"About 100 demonstrators" who were "mostly younger people- white, Caucasian who were milling about" but this only gets mentioned 4 paragraphs later- LONG after the attention span of the average Lib reader has gotten distracted after already having made up his or her mind.

Democrats have the same answer to every problem

 California Democrats unveil tax-increase package

Mon, May 24 2010
SAN FRANCISCO, May 24 (Reuters) - Democratic lawmakers in California unveiled a plan on Monday for nearly $5 billion of tax and fee increases to help fill the state government's $19.1 billion budget gap. More here:

Notice, their answer never includes "STOP SPENDING LIKE IDIOT LIBERALS?"

Even the dumbest knuckleheads are starting to wise up


Bold is mine:

LONDON — Last month hundreds of environmental activists crammed into an auditorium here to ponder an anguished question: If the scientific consensus on climate change has not changed, why have so many people turned away from the idea that human activity is warming the planet?

Nowhere has this shift in public opinion been more striking than in Britain, where climate change was until this year such a popular priority that in 2008 Parliament enshrined targets for emissions cuts as national law. But since then, the country has evolved into a home base for a thriving group of climate skeptics who have dominated news reports in recent months, apparently convincing many that the threat of warming is vastly exaggerated.

A survey in February by the BBC found that only 26 percent of Britons believed that “climate change is happening and is now established as largely manmade,” down from 41 percent in November 2009. A poll conducted for the German magazine Der Spiegel found that 42 percent of Germans feared global warming, down from 62 percent four years earlier.

And London’s Science Museum recently announced that a permanent exhibit scheduled to open later this year would be called the Climate Science Gallery — not the Climate Change Gallery as had previously been planned.

“Before, I thought, ‘Oh my God, this climate change problem is just dreadful,’ ” said Jillian Leddra, 50, a musician who was shopping in London on a recent lunch hour. “But now I have my doubts, and I’m wondering if it’s been overhyped.” More hilarity here:

Ha ha - you just can't fool those libs ...  for long.  They won't blindly buy ANYTHING ... for more than 20-30 years. 

Hey, what happened to "the science is settled?"

Feds won't "process" illegals referred by Arizona


John Morton, assistant secretary of homeland security for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

A top Department of Homeland Security official reportedly said his agency will not necessarily process illegal immigrants referred to them by Arizona authorities.

John Morton, assistant secretary of homeland security for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, made the comment during a meeting on Wednesday with the editorial board of the Chicago Tribune, the newspaper reports. More here:

Well of COURSE you won't process illegal aliens ... you're Democrats ... the MASTERMINDS ... the intellectual elite.  As if we expected you to act like you have a brain ... we know better.  Don't worry, jackasses, we're coming for your ilk in November.  The only thing that makes me happy about this is you'll still refuse to enforce the borders even after you take an ass-whipping at the polls.  That means we'll give you another one in two years after that ... so, please, keep it up.

Also, did you notice?  The media turned on him.  He probably thought he was in a safe place (a meeting with the editorial board of the Chicago Tribune.)  He was just giving his buddies the old wink and nod.  We know what you mean, John Morton.  The illegal aliens aren't a problem ... ARIZONA  enforcing the border is the "problem."

U.N. finds something even MORE important than "climate change"



Excerpts: (bold is mine)

The economic case for global action to stop the destruction of the natural world is even more powerful than the argument for tackling climate change, a major report for the United Nations will declare this summer.

The Stern report on climate change, which was prepared for the UK Treasury and published in 2007, famously claimed that the cost of limiting climate change would be around 1%-2% of annual global wealth, but the longer-term economic benefits would be 5-20 times that figure.

The UN's biodiversity report – dubbed the Stern for Nature – is expected to say that the value of saving "natural goods and services", such as pollination, medicines, fertile soils, clean air and water, will be even higher – between 10 and 100 times the cost of saving the habitats and species which provide them.

That's right, folks ... EXTINCTION is a HUGE problemo!  Don't worry though because the answer is "just change your life and give some money/freedom to the United Nations" ... you know ... the same answer as the answer to Global Cooling ... Global Warming ... Climate Change.

To mark the UN's International Day for Biological Diversity tomorrow, hundreds of British companies, charities and other organisations have backed an open letter from the Natural History Museum's director Michael Dixon warning that "the diversity of life, so crucial to our security, health, wealth and wellbeing is being eroded".

Huh?  Since when do we need a "day" to appreciate biological diversity?   Does it seem to you they might have planned this "day" ahead of time.  That is to say, they KNEW they were going to make a big deal out of this when they planned the "day."  Hmmmm, mighty smart of our masterminds to think of this, wouldn't you say?  Nah, never mind, I'm just paranoid ... they UN would never manipulate us like this, after all, they only have our best interests in mind.

"We need a sea-change in human thinking and attitudes towards nature: not as something to be vanquished, conquered, but rather something to be cherished and lived within," said the report's author, the economist Pavan Sukhdev.

Yes, I agree, we need a sea-change in thinking alright.  What I have in mind is the immediate (and public) wet-noodle lashing for morons like you whenever you bring up idiotic concepts like this in the future.

The changes will involve a wholesale revolution in the way humans do business, consume, and think about their lives, Sukhdev, told The Guardian. He referred to the damage currently being inflicted on the natural world as "a landscape of market failures". More here:

Oh -- the ultimate wet dream of liberals everywhere.  "The wholesale revolution of the way we live and think."  How in the hell do these people worm themselves into positions of power?  THAT'S the "landscape of market failure" that I notice.

Meanwhile, species have been coming and going on earth for a million years and will CONTINUE to do so no matter HOW much money and freedom the masterminds of the world take from you.  That is the nature of the liberal.  No matter how much they take from you, it's never enough ... ever.  No matter how much they order you around, it's never enough ... ever.

Anyway, now that "Climate Change" has been shown to be a total scam is rapidly losing favor with the left, look for it to be replaced with this new mantra.  They're going to start saying how species are going extinct at an ever more rapid rate etc etc -  you know, very "scary" stuff.  And when that is discredited it will be something else.

Times Have Changed.

I remember a time when it was shameful to speak like this. Today, they defend "ebonics" as a legitimate form of communication. Have some dignity people and stop making excuses for not speaking properly.

Update on Mojave Cross ( 10/07/09 )








The longtime caretakers of a Mojave Desert cross that led to a Supreme Court case are vowing to replace the memorial, which was stolen less than two weeks after the high court allowed it to remain standing.

The American Civil Liberties Union of Southern California had sued over the cross on federal land, saying it was a violation of the constitutional separation of church and state.

The cross has been covered with a tarp or a wooden box since 2002 by a court order to avoid violating federal law mandating the separation of church and state. The 75-year-old monument was the target of a longstanding legal challenge from the ACLU, which charged that the cross is a religious symbol that shouldn't be allowed on public land. The U.S. Supreme Court last month refused to order that it be torn down in a 5-4 decision.

The Liberty Institute is now offering a $25,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction in the case, and the National Park Service has established a tip hotline seeking information leading to the recovery of the cross. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Park Service at (760) 252-6120.

It's not clear if a replacement cross will be permitted. A park service spokeswoman says officials are waiting on word from the Justice Department.

Olbermann Calls Palin an Idiot.

Olbermann: She continued, “I’m glad to be here on the president’s home turf. Somebody told me ‘you know, you’re going into enemy territory. I said it’s Chicago, it’s not MSNBC.’ That woman is an idiot. And the event at which that idiot spoke was sponsored by an Illinois firm that specializes in battery-operated back-up sump pumps. Not just a sump-pump political event: it was a back-up sump-pump political event. Moreover, to put it plainly, and this is a matter of record, that woman does not have the courage, personal or political, to appear on MSNBC. Not without and army with her, and I mean that literally. the half-governor of Alaska now celebrating two years without holding an actual news conference or having the guts to appear on a network like this one. But the toast of America’s back-up sump pump political circuit. Today’s Worst Person in the World.
It goes without saying that using dyslogistic terms like "idiot" says more about you than it does about the person you're degrading. Iterating the moniker only makes you look like an even bigger fool.

This idiot Olbermann pulls the classic Lib argument- when someone has the wisdom to avoid what would only be a highly biased, illogical, and abusive diatribe interview, you call them "scared" or "unready". Of course, to the thoughtful mind, it's just avoidance of an unpleasant waste of time where you have absolutely nothing to gain. His rant reeks of envy for someone with more character and much more popularity than he'll ever realize.

Differences in Conservatives and Libs


If a conservative doesn't like guns, he doesn't buy one.
If a liberal doesn't like guns, he wants all guns outlawed.

If a conservative is a vegetarian, he doesn't eat meat..
If a liberal is a vegetarian, he wants all meat products banned for everyone.

If a conservative is homosexual, he quietly leads his life.
If a liberal is homosexual, he demands legislated respect.

If a conservative is down-and-out, he thinks about how to better his situation.
A liberal wonders who is going to take care of him.

If a conservative doesn't like a talk show host, he switches channels.
Liberals demand that those they don't like be shut down.

If a conservative is a non-believer, he doesn't go to church.
A liberal non-believer wants any mention of God and religion silenced.
(Unless it's a foreign religion, of course!)

If a conservative decides he needs health care, he goes about shopping for it, or may choose a job that provides it.
A liberal demands that the rest of us pay for his.

None Are So Blind As Those Who Refuse to See.

However, I think this guy sees perfectly clearly but he realizes he'll get a lot more air time by arguing the ridiculous. It wouldn't be so objectionable to call radical islamists "Radical Islamists" if it weren't for the fact that they're all Islamic. It doesn't matter that they don't represent all Islamists, the idea is not to call them Islamists- the idea is to call them Radical Islamists. I guess Mr. Colmes just doesn't see the distinction. His argument makes about as much sense as objecting to the term "Crazy Person" because it implies that all people are crazy. Maybe he should google "qualifier" or "adjective".

The truth is that he's confusing the idea of discrimination with being discriminating. The truth is that most Muslims are peaceful but some Muslims are not. We intelligently identify those Muslims by calling them "Radical Islamists". To suggest that doing this maligns all Muslims is just a way of attempting to convince us that turning a blind eye to legitimate threats and danger will make them go away. For those of us living in the real world and not in fantasy land, this doesn't make any sense at all.

For me, it makes just as much sense to argue that driving a car for a long distance in the rain after having a few cocktails will be "fine" as long as you really concentrate. Anyone who has studied actual statistics for even a moment knows this is not true.

Mr. Colmes perpetuates the Liberal mentality that changing the name of something changes anything. It seems to be their goal in life to continually distract from the truth by either forcing the idea of using ridiculous nomenclature (e.g. African-American instead of Black) or by insisting that a meaningful and descriptive expression is bigoted, racist, or ignorant.

Even if he were able to make a strong case for his argument, what should we be calling them instead? When someone says "Radical Islamist", I know exactly what they mean. When someone says "heads up" at a baseball game, I know exactly what they mean. I guess they want us to be so politically correct that we can't say "Kleenex" when we actually mean "facial tissue" because, you know, "Kleenex" is a brand name even though we all know exactly what it means.

I guess being crystal clear and concise is a sin when you're a Liberal.

Today is May 20th- Draw Mohammed Day.

The project was a complete and utter failure. The cartoonist who thought up the idea has retreated and has implored everyone involved NOT to draw Mohammed for fear of Islamic retribution. There's a facebook group dedicated to this cause but membership is sparse [79,369 members] and while it's still early in the day, there were almost no [6,841 drawings] submissions of drawings. The terrorists have won. This drawing submitted shows just how paralyzed with fear we are.

If She Were a Republican, We'd Never Hear the End of This.

New York (CNN) -- The wife of Robert F. Kennedy Jr. was charged with drunken driving after a police officer saw her run over a curb outside a school, authorities said Tuesday night.

Mary Richardson Kennedy was arrested Saturday night in Bedford, New York, a sergeant with the town's police department said.

Kennedy's blood alcohol level was 0.11, said Sgt. Matthew Dunn. The legal limit is 0.08.

He confirmed published reports that an officer saw Kennedy drive over a curb outside a school in her station wagon.

A message left for Robert Kennedy's spokesperson was not returned.

Bedford, in Westchester County, is about an hour north of New York City.

Democrats were hear to say, "What's the big deal? It's not like school was in session when it happened."

Here It Is - For Politicians Who Don't Have the Time

The crux of the Arizona Immigration Bill:

NO OFFICIAL OR AGENCY OF THIS STATE OR A COUNTY, CITY, TOWN OR OTHER POLITICAL SUBDIVISION OF THIS STATE MAY ADOPT A POLICY THAT LIMITS OR
RESTRICTS THE ENFORCEMENT OF FEDERAL IMMIGRATION LAWS TO LESS THAN THE FULL EXTENT PERMITTED BY FEDERAL LAW.

The whole bill (too long for Mr. Holder to read, let alone understand), here.

It Sure Would Be Nice to Get a Yes or a No For a Change.

I mean, I'm in defense of elitism as much as the next guy. However, these people who think they should do our thinking for us are getting tiresome- particularly when we understand the facts and they don't. Furthermore, how does the Director of Homeland Security have the audacity to not know the facts of the controversial Arizona immigration law?

Attorney General Holder has already been run through the ringer of embarrassment. Shouldn't that be some kind of deterrent? Wouldn't that have inspired everyone who might ever be asked about their opinion on the law to make damn sure they fully understood it? Well the short answer is "no"- not for Democrats.

Democrats don't experience sensations of embarrassment. After eons of being surrounded by the "I'm ok, you're ok" crowd to whom self-esteem is infinitely more important than achievement they've lost touch with many basic human emotions. They're doused in a soup of unwarranted approval and live in an environment of "you help me and I'll help you" style of advancement. This system works perfectly fine for people who are employed in industries which exist solely to create jobs- the government, the post office, and museums for example, but it doesn't work if you want to be part of something that brings solutions and improvement rather than something to keep the second-stringers and bottom-feeders busy.

In spite of the embarrassment that Mr. Holder experienced, Ms. Napolitano somehow decided that she would never need to know nor understand this law. I guess she somehow came to the conclusion that it had nothing to do with her responsibilities as the Director of Homeland Security. Of course, she's the same person who proclaimed that the "system is working" when the notorious "underwear bomber" eluded countless security checkpoints and was ultimately subdued by passengers on the plane. I'm not sure how she worked it out in her mind that these passengers were under her purview but I guess that's how elitism works- you take credit for other people's work.

Awesome.

You creative types can quit your job and work on your music or your art because your healthcare will be paid for by taxpayers.  That is totally awesome. Unless you're a taxpayer but what do they know.

The media is so fair and objective - they show all sides



Yes, Chris Matthews, "totally objective jourrrrnalist."

This is how 99% of jourrrrrnalists think.  They may not have the guts to come out and say it like Chris Matthews just did, but that's EXACTLY what they think ... and it's EXACTLY what they want YOU to think.

He wants Obama to nationalize the oil industry.  He thinks someone should be executed for BP's drilling accident.  He HATES profits, free enterprise and capitalism.  Don't believe me, watch the video and judge for yourself. More at Newsbusters:

Big mouth lib mayor of Los Angeles

Mayor Villaraigosa (lib genius)

From HotAir:

The Los Angeles City Council voted to boycott the state of Arizona over its new immigration-enforcement law, and now the Arizona Corporation Commission has responded. Gary Pierce, one of the commissioners chosen in state-wide elections to the utility regulation panel, notes that Los Angeles gets about 25% of its power from Arizona producers. If the City of Angels really wants a boycott, Pierce offers his services to help, as he explains in a letter to Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and copied to Hot Air:

Dear Mayor Villaraigosa,

I was dismayed to learn that the Los Angeles City Council voted to boycott Arizona and Arizona-based companies — a vote you strongly supported — to show opposition to SB 1070 (Support our Law Enforcement and Safe Neighborhoods Act).

You explained your support of the boycott as follows: “While we recognize that as neighbors, we share resources and ties with the State of Arizona that may be difficult to sever, our goal is not to hurt the local economy of Los Angeles, but to impact the economy of Arizona. Our intent is to use our dollars — or the withholding of our dollars — to send a message.” (emphasis added)

I received your message; please receive mine. As a state-wide elected member of the Arizona Corporation Commission overseeing Arizona’s electric and water utilities, I too am keenly aware of the “resources and ties” we share with the City of Los Angeles. In fact, approximately twenty-five percent of the electricity consumed in Los Angeles is generated by power plants in Arizona.

If an economic boycott is truly what you desire, I will be happy to encourage Arizona utilities to renegotiate your power agreements so Los Angeles no longer receives any power from Arizona-based generation. I am confident that Arizona’s utilities would be happy to take those electrons off your hands. If, however, you find that the City Council lacks the strength of its convictions to turn off the lights in Los Angeles and boycott Arizona power, please reconsider the wisdom of attempting to harm Arizona’s economy.

People of goodwill can disagree over the merits of SB 1070. A state-wide economic boycott of Arizona is not a message sent in goodwill.

Sincerely,

Commissioner Gary Pierce

New pricing structure


CLAYTON, Mo. - Panera Bread Co. is asking customers at a new restaurant to pay what they want.

The national bakery and restaurant chain launched a new nonprofit store here this week that has the same menu as its other 1,400 locations. But the prices are a little different — there aren't any. Customers are told to donate what they want for a meal, whether it's the full suggested price, a penny or $100.

The new store in the upscale St. Louis suburb of Clayton is the first of what will Panera hopes will be many around the country. Ronald Shaich, Panera's CEO until last week, was on hand at the new bakery Monday to explain the system to customers.

The pilot restaurant is run by a nonprofit foundation. If it can sustain itself financially, Panera will expand the model around the country within months. It all depends on whether customers will abide by the motto that hangs above the deli counter: "Take what you need, leave your fair share." More here:

No wonder libs think Woody Allen is a genius


The notorious and formerly funny movie director Woody Allen is apparently frustrated with the cumbersome operations of American democracy too.

The one-time-father-now-husband-of-his-daughter tells the Spanish-language magazine La Vanguardia that the United States' Democratic Smoker-in-Chief could accomplish a whole lot more from his White House if he didn't have so many disorderly, annoying people objecting, distracting and criticizing him all the time.

Such social messiness has been known to occur in functioning democracies, even cinematic ones, although less often on celebrity-strewn movie sets under the direction of a dictatorial director.
"It would be good...if (Obama) could be dictator for a few years because he could do a lot of good things quickly," Allen is quoted as saying.
Allen is also said to have said:
I am pleased with Obama. I think he is brilliant. The Republican Party should get out of his way and stop trying to hurt him.
More here:

Yes, George Washington and Thomas Jefferson would be so proud to learn they have turned over the republic to people like you, Woody.  Hee haw -- Hee Haw!!

Actually, the founders knew damn well that people like Woody would always be among us.   That's EXACTLY why they wrote the Constitution ... to protect us from braying jackasses such as this.

Poor, poor, Jeremiah Wright


NEW YORK (AP) - The Rev. Jeremiah Wright, Barack Obama's controversial former pastor, said in a letter obtained by The Associated Press that he is "toxic" to the Obama administration and that the president "threw me under the bus."

In his strongest language to date about the administration's 2-year-old rift with the Chicago pastor, Wright told a group raising money for African relief that his pleas to release frozen funds for use in earthquake-ravaged Haiti would likely be ignored.

"No one in the Obama administration will respond to me, listen to me, talk to me or read anything that I write to them. I am 'toxic' in terms of the Obama administration," Wright wrote the president of Africa 6000 International earlier this year.

"I am 'radioactive,' Sir. When Obama threw me under the bus, he threw me under the bus literally!" he wrote. "Any advice that I offer is going to be taken as something to be avoided. Please understand that!" More here:

What?  You mean you can't say stuff like "God Damn America" and still have the President act like he knows you?  Well, I'll be. Sounds like the good "reverend" is flummoxed ... just can't quite figure it out ... it's a real mystery to him

The Klown ain't buyin' it


The London Post says a wager came off, the terms of which were as follows.

I will bet any man one hundred pounds, that he cannot make a million strokes, with pen and ink, within a month. They were not to be mere dots or scratches, but fair down strokes, such as form the child’s first lesson in writing. A gentleman accepted the challenge. 

The month allowed was the lunar month of only twenty-eight days; so that for the completion of the undertaking, an average of thirty-six thousand strokes a day was required. This, at sixty a minute, or three thousand six hundred an hour–and neither the human intellect nor the human hand can be expected to do more–would call for ten hours’ labor in every four and twenty. With a proper feeling of the respect due to the Sabbath, he determined to abstain from his work on the Sundays. By this determination he diminished by four days the period allowed him, and at the same time, by so doing, he increased the daily average of his strokes to upwards of forty-one thousand.

On the first day he executed about fifty thousand strokes; on the second, nearly as many. But at length, after many days, the hand became stiff and weary, the wrist swollen, and it required the almost constant attendance of some assiduous relation or friend, to besprinkle it, without interrupting its progress over the paper, with a lotion calculated to relieve and invigorate it. On the twenty-third day, the million strokes, and some thousands over, were accomplished; and the piles of paper that exhibited them testified, that to the courageous heart, the willing hand and the energetic mind, hardly anything is impossible.

– Francis Channing Woodworth, American Miscellany of Entertaining Knowledge, 1852

By way of information, 100 pounds in 1852 would be worth 8,630  pounds today - or $12,534.00

Quick, everyone ... UP IN ARMS!!


SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, Calif. (AP) - A California high school girl's softball coach has apologized for requiring eight players who struck out during a recent game to drink soda pop out of a team member's shoe, a school district official said.

The South Tahoe High School varsity players drank the soda at a team slumber party on May 1, hours after a game against Wooster High School of Reno, Nev.

"It was meant as a joke, and obviously it went too far," Lake Tahoe Unified School District superintendent James Tarwater said.

A parent complained about the incident and coach Anneliese Neitling has since apologized, Tarwater said. It was a young coach's mistake and the matter will be addressed during Neitling's postseason evaluation, he said.

"People learn from mistakes," Tarwater said. "She does a good job pulling the team together, morale-wise and support-wise." More here:

Ok ... wait just a dang minute.  Let me put this all together.   A woman's athletic coach .... mmm hmmm.  A  team slumber party ... mmmm hmmmm.  Drinking from a shoe .... mmmm hmmmm.  

Nah, that's just me being paranoid ... it all sounds like good fun to me.  Hey, I wonder if they had to drink the soda from a sneaker they wear at the games or if the coach had them all wear spikes to the slumber party.

Leave it to the libs to get the outrage going though.  My guess is they'll need to go ahead and make sure everyone wears sandals from now on ... you know ... to make sure this NEVER HAPPENS AGAIN!!!  That's how libs do it ... they ensure they address the sole of the problem ... no pussy-footing around.

Information about Gonorrhea Lectim

The Center for Disease Control has issued a warning about a new virulent strain of this old disease. The disease is called Gonorrhea Lectim. It's pronounced "Gonna re-elect 'em," and it is a terrible obamanation.

The disease is contracted through dangerous and high risk behavior involving putting your cranium up your rectum. Many victims contracted it in 2008...but now most people, after having been infected for the past 1-2 years, are starting to realize how destructive this sickness is.

It's sad because Gonorrhea Lectim is easily cured with a new drug just coming on the market called Votemout. You take the first dose in 2010 and the second dose in 2012 and simply don't engage in such behavior again; otherwise, it could become permanent and eventually wipe out all life as we know it.

Several states are already on top of this, like Virginia and New Jersey , and apparently now Massachusetts , with many more seeing the writing on the wall.

He's Just the Attorney General.

How should he know what the law actually says????

Libs...

They get it wrong, they get told they've got it wrong, they keep getting it wrong. It's somewhat as if they're hard of learning hearing...


I know I've personally been over this topic several times- a few times on this very blog- but this is yet another example of choosing a Red Herring rather than debating the facts. I mean, only a fool would argue that it's justifiable to pull anyone over and check their citizenship papers ["papers" I love that usage because it reminds me of all the WWII films I've seen where the Nazis ask everyone for their "papers". Of course, they then say in a very somber tone with very somber and serious and dire background music, "Your papers... are not in order... you must come with us." All the while using their finest, nastiest, Doberman Pinscher German Ockzunt.]

The fact that this is not what the law states nor is it what actually happens. This won't stop the Libs from chanting about the systemic violations of the civil liberties of our brothers and sisters to the south. Obviously (at least to those of you who read and understand this blog), if they chose to argue against the word and spirit of the actual law, they'd have nothing to pass the time.

I'm not going to fault the cartoonist here. Clearly, he's providing a visual commentary on what enough people actually believe to make his drawing popular. The problem here though is that- much like a Jackson Pollock painting with a cigarette extinguished in it- is he making a statement or is he just mocking us? I'll leave that for you to decide.
