Sometimes "conservatives" act like idiot-liberals


WASHINGTON — They hear that their cause is lost, that demographics and the march of history have doomed their campaign to keep marriage only between a man and a woman. But the young conservatives who oppose same-sex marriage — unlike most of their generation — remain undaunted. 

And then these cheeseburgers, who constantly cry for freedom, put out their "great argument" for stealing the freedom of others ... oh, the ironing.

Last week, the Heritage Foundation released a report by Ryan T. Anderson, 31, in defense of traditional marriage, “Marriage: What It Is, Why It Matters, and the Consequences of Redefining It.”

Yeah, yeah ... hey, I have an idea ... LEAVE PEACEFUL PEOPLE ALONE ... LET PEOPLE BE FREE ... LET ALL PEOPLE HAVE THE SAME RIGHTS AS YOU!!!!

Idiot libs find out things aren't really "free"


If you haven't heard, they're trying to take money right out of bank accounts to pay for a "bail out."  That's funny too, because here in the US, bailouts are free, right?

In a move that could set off new fears of contagion across the eurozone, anxious depositors drained cash from ATMs in Cyprus on Saturday, hours after European officials in Brussels required that part of a new €10 billion ($12.6 billion) bailout must be paid for directly from the bank accounts of savers.

''This is a clear-cut robbery,'' said Andreas Moyseos, a former electrician who is a pensioner in Nicosia, the capital. Iliana Andreadakis, a book critic, added: ''This issue doesn't only affect the people's deposits, but also the prospect of the Cyprus economy. The EU has diminished its credibility.'' More here:

Ha ha ... "Clear cut robbery " quothe he with the look of "I just ran smack-dab into reality" plastered across his pasty lib kisser. 

And this is the problem with idiot-libs.  They are actually shocked to find that things are not free ... as they are when confronted with most of reality.

They are in a constant state of amazement, the libs.  Yes, often you see them, nodding their heads as they grasp some profound concept or another ... and it seems they're ALWAYS grasping one, doesn't it?  It seems like all they do is grasp one profound concept after another ... and always as conspicuously as possible, no?

That behavior is designed to show the public how open-minded (and therefore, smart) they are.  They do it so you can see how they're always "learning" ... the nodding of the melon and the gushing of "ohhhhh, I understand" ... like a little kid who just learned how to put the chain on his bike ... you know ... now he/she is a GENIUS.

If only there were some way we could find to force the libs to leave us alone.  Alas, libs MUST apply their great genius to us all ... for our own good, of course.  You see, WE, don't know what we're doing so they're here to help.   And if you refuse their help, they'll have the government FORCE you to do their bidding.

Have you ever noticed?  Everything the libs do MUST affect YOU.  And all they need to help you is a little bit more of your freedom and money ... and it works great ... just ask them ... unless they've just experienced a totally unforeseen "clear-cut robbery."

I tell ya, that just cracks me up  ... they're forced to pay for their actions and they call it "clear cut robbery."

Hey, women don't need to be equal, you idiots



(Reuters) - Egypt's ruling Muslim Brotherhood warns that a U.N. declaration on women's rights could destroy society by allowing a woman to travel, work and use contraception without her husband's approval and letting her control family spending. More here:

Yes, let's give them some more money, shall we?

Here they come ... for more of your money and liberty


President Barack Obama is preparing to tell all federal agencies for the first time that they should consider the impact on global warming before approving major projects, from pipelines to highways.

The result could be significant delays for natural gas- export facilities, ports for coal sales to Asia, and even new forest roads, industry lobbyists warn. More here:

"The impact on global warming" LMAO.  I'm sure this won't cost a dime or add massive red tape onto a huge ball of red tape.  Of course, red tape is free and provides great efficiencies.

Activist strikes blow for midgets


An average day at the grocery store for Rhode Island mom, Michelle Martinka, turned into a moment of activism when she noticed that Cains Pickles, a popular New England brand, produced a line called “Kosher Dill Midgets.”

Martinka is the mother of ten-month-old Adelaide, a little girl with a form of dwarfism known as Achondroplasia—and “midget” is a derogatory way of referencing those born with the condition.

No, let's just stop right there.  I doubt the usual use of the word "midget" was meant in a derogatory fashion.

However, if you've somehow decided you're a "victim" (and you're an idiot-lib) then it's only natural to try to find ways to "make a difference."   And for the completely uninspired, the usual answer is to walk around harrumphing and pretending you changed something by changing a word

In her email to TakePart, Martinka explains, "Although many people do not know, the m-word is derogatory, not just some innocuous word meaning small, as it was 50 years ago." More here:

Hey, Martinka, did you know your name contains the word "tink?"  Yes, and did you know the t-word is is derogatory? It turns out that many people do not know this.  Shall you be changing your name?  It's very hurtful to tinks.

Why are lesbians fat? WHY?


(CNSNews.com) – The National Institutes of Health (NIH) has awarded $1.5 million to study biological and social factors for why “three-quarters” of lesbians are obese and why gay males are not, calling it an issue of “high public-health significance." More here:

And yet we have to stop White House tours because of budget cuts, right?  Of course.

Helpful "Democratics"


Just like ALL idiot-liberals


She admitted voting twice in the presidential election last November, and now, Obama supporter Melowese Richardson has been indicted for allegedly voting at least six times. She also is charged with illegal voting in 2008 and 2011.  More here:

Sure she did it ... and by doing so, she canceled out your vote.  But she knows that sometimes you have to cancel the votes of others ... for their own good, donhca know. 

But don't worry, she's probably the only one.

Without Commentary


Juan Williams Caught Plagiarizing, Takes Full Blame.

Figures if he stuffs enough "research" under his arm, nobody will be able to figure out what's his and what's plagiarized. If it weren't for the confounded internet, his plan would have succeeded.


Well, not full blame. He didn't want to be greedy. He let his "researcher" share in that glory.

In a phone interview Thursday evening, Williams pinned the blame on a researcher who he described as a “young man.”

“I was writing a column about the immigration debate and had my researcher look around to see what data existed to pump up this argument and he sent back what I thought were his words and summaries of the data,” Williams told Salon. “I had never seen the CAP report myself, so I didn’t know that the young man had in fact not summarized the data but had taken some of the language from the CAP report.”

Full Story HERE.
In other words, and according to his "logic" he asked the "researcher" to find data and when he gave him that data, he no longer thought it was data but his summaries of the data and so he copied it word for word as if it were his own work. Yep. Classic Lib tactic. If you can take enough steps away from the dog poop, you never stepped in it. Of course, only Libs fall for that nonsense.

The Colorado Coalition Against Gun Violence

Never heard of them? Can't find their website? Limited referencing of their name outside of Sen. Hudak (D) and her condescending scolding of Amanda Collins? Strange, right?

Here's a clip from the Fox News article (emphasis mine)...
 
A Colorado state senator has come under fire for remarks she made to a rape victim at a committee hearing Monday on a bill that would ban concealed weapons on public college campuses.

Sen. Evie Hudak, a Democrat from Westminster, Colo., criticized testimony provided by Amanda Collins, 27, who said that the attack on her at University of Nevada, Reno, may have been avoided had she been allowed to carry a gun on campus, The Denver Post reported.

"I just want to say that, actually, statistics are not on your side even if you had a gun," Hudak told Collins during the hearing, according to the report. "And chances are that if you would have had a gun, then he would have been able to get that from you and possibly use it against you."

Hudak cited statistical data compiled by the Colorado Coalition Against Gun Violence, claiming that for every woman who used a handgun to kill someone in self-defense, 83 were murdered by their own weapon, The Post reported.

 "Hudak cited statistical data compiled by the Colorado Coalition Against Gun Violence, claiming that for every woman who used a handgun to kill someone in self-defense, 83 were murdered by their own weapon, The Post reported."

That is *not* what the Post reported. The post reported what Ms. Hudak actually said which was, "The Colorado Coalition Against Gun Violence says that for every one woman who used a handgun to kill someone in self-defense, 83 were murdered by them."

What I'm wondering is what she actually meant by that because to me, it sounds like these dubious statistics coming from a spurious source are more of a convenience than actual science. Due to the lack of detail in her statement, it's entirely possible that she used total gun deaths to contrast gun deaths during a sexual assault. It is also possible that she's using statistics where the attacker was armed but the victim was not during a sexual assault.

However since she is not specific, and since it's as hard to find a reference to "The Colorado Coalition Against Gun Violence" as it is to find references to Afrighting Laws without Scalia being mentioned.

There's another mention of this phenomenon but the blogger who talks about it is unavailable for comment due to his Iron Curtain security preventing any sort of comment or contact. (23,169 comments successfully blocked and counting).

Shhhhh, you're in the presence of genius


A Florida legislator wants anyone trying to buy ammunition to complete an anger management program first, in what critics say is the latest example of local lawmakers reaching for constitutionally-dubious solutions to the problem of gun violence.

The bill filed Saturday by state Sen. Audrey Gibson, D-Jacksonville, would require a three-day waiting period for the sale of any firearm and the sale of ammunition to anyone who has not completed anger management courses. The proposal would require ammo buyers to take the anger management courses every 10 years.

And then the kicker ... yes, all the genius-libs of today can't resist lecturing with "it's not about _____, it's about ______."

“This is not about guns," Gibson said. "This is about ammunition and not only for the safety of the general community, but also for the safety of law enforcement.” More here:

Ha ha, I wonder how long a genius-lib can go without uttering that line (or a variant.)

Fatties can watch soccer in comfort - kinda

 

The 2014 World Cup in Brazil is set to be the first to offer special seats for obese fans. 

FIFA told The Associated Press that the seats will be offered to conform to Brazilian legislation, although international supporters will also be entitled to them. More here:

Oh that sounds great, doesn't it?   All the fatties sitting together in one section of the stadium.  It's about time we separated Fatty McFatstick from the rest of polite society.  Sheesh.  Just looking at them is brutal.

You say you have some insane morons? Let's let them be teachers.


Baltimore, MD (KTNV) -- A student in Baltimore was suspended over breakfast.

7-year-old Josh Welch was eating a Pop-Tart at school. A teacher saw the pastry and said she thought it looked like it was being shaped into a gun.

The teacher also said she heard Welch say, "Bang Bang" while he was holding it.

That was enough to get him suspended. More here and here:

Hey, sheep ... these are your intellectual betters, teaching your children.
But Josh's dad is not happy saying, "I would almost call it insanity. I mean with all the potential issues that could be dealt with at school, real threats, bullies, whatever the real issue is, it's a pastry.., Ya know?"

Oh woe is us ... the government doesn't have enough money


(CNSNews.com) – Federal revenue will return to its pre-recession levels in 2013, according to projections from the Congressional Budget Office (CBO), setting a record for the most money the government has ever taken in.

In its latest Budget and Economic Update, the CBO forecasts that federal revenue will top $2.7 trillion in 2013, slightly higher than the $2.6 trillion the government collected in 2007, when the last recession officially began.

In fact, the $2.7 trillion in revenue will be the most money the federal government has collected in history. More here:

Right, and it's still not enough.  And it will NEVER be enough.  They need to tax more ... and print more and borrow more ... so they can hand it out to their friends ... and screw you and your children, jackass.

From Bits and Pieces:

The "Sequester" - aka "end of the world"

 
From here:

Yes, but we all know about this already ... because of the jourrrrnalists/media. Can't get anything past THEM.  They talk about it every day, non stop ... because they think it's so important.

LOL @ the government squandering our country ... just so they can give money to their buddies. 


In the "What was I thinking?" department


A state lawmaker has issued an apology and been stripped of his leadership title over what some perceived as a lewd remark to a 17-year-old girl on the House floor.

State Rep. Ernest Hewett made reference to "a snake" under his desk as he addressed the girl at a budget hearing last week. He has said his remark came out wrong and he understands how it could be misconstrued.

The girl, a high school senior, had been testifying in support of funding for the Connecticut Science Center's youth programs, which she said helped her to get over a fear of snakes. One lawmaker told her she was a good spokeswoman for the center and asked if there were any questions.

"If you're bashful I got a snake sitting under my desk here," Hewett then said. Laughter at his remark from those in the room is heard in an audio tape of the exchange.

Oops, that "came out wrong.:"  Yes, yes, it was just a Freudian slip.

Hewett, a five-term Democrat from New London, said his words did not come out as intended. He told The Day of New London, "What I meant to say was, if you are shy then I have an acre of land in the Everglades." More here:

Hey, how about that, they actually identified him as a "Democratic" ... and it only took them five paragraphs.

The government teaches you a lesson


Hey, sheep ... so, you dared to cut the federal government by 2%? 

We'll teach YOU idiots not to screw around with us (the government.)

The Homeland Security Department released from its jails more than 2,000 illegal immigrants facing deportation in recent weeks due to looming budget cuts and planned to release 3,000 more during March, The Associated Press has learned. More here:

Yes, a 2% reduction in planned spending="looming budget cuts." That's how it's presented by the media.  Have you heard the media tell you it's only 2%?  Or have you heard the media act like it's the end of the world?  Exactly.

Here's what Charles Krauthammer has to say (in part.)

Hail Armageddon


By Charles Krauthammer - Published Feb 28

“The worst-case scenario for us,” a leading anti-budget-cuts lobbyist told The Post, “is the sequester hits and nothing bad really happens.”

Think about that. Worst case? That a government drowning in debt should cut back by 2.2 percent — and the country survives. That a government now borrowing 35 cents of every dollar it spends reduces that borrowing by two cents “and nothing bad really happens.” Oh, the humanity!

A normal citizen might think this a good thing. For reactionary liberalism, however, whatever sum our ever-inflating government happens to spend today (now double what Bill Clinton spent in his last year) is the Platonic ideal — the reduction of which, however minuscule, is a national calamity.

Or damn well should be. Otherwise, people might get the idea that we can shrink government and live on.

Hence the president’s message. If the “sequestration” — automatic spending cuts — goes into effect, the skies will fall. Plane travel jeopardized, carrier groups beached, teachers furloughed. And a shortage of junk-touching TSA agents.

The Obama administration has every incentive to make the sky fall, lest we suffer that terrible calamity — cuts the nation survives. Are they threatening to pare back consultants, conferences, travel and other nonessential fluff? Hardly. It shall be air-traffic control. Meat inspection. Weather forecasting. More here:

Happy ending, feel-good story of the week


The trouble began around 8 p.m. on Thursday while the family was baking a cake. They were interrupted from the task by a knock on the door, KHOU News is reporting.

“I see a young boy and I think it is a friend of my son so I open it a little bit,” the father recalled while talking to the station. 

“These guys push and out comes two more, they push me on the ground.”

The suspects reportedly went after the mother of the family while the father was knocked down, as the son ran to get his father’s gun. Once he retrieved it, he  fatally shot one of the invaders.

The other two suspects then fled the scene.

After they ran away, authorities from the Harris County Sheriff’s Office were called to the scene. Soon after, the other two suspects were found and taken into the custody, the station learned. More here:

LOL @ "Ban on plastic bags causes more shoplifting"

Yes, that's the headline of this story:
 

A customer enters the Lake City Grocery Outlet. The store is struggling because of a significant increase in theft. The increase is blamed on Seattle's plastic bag ban and a concentration of inebriates and drug users in the neighborhood.

LOL - "... the ban on plastic and a concentration of inebriates and drug users ..."

My comment?  They left out "criminals."

When the Seattle City Council unanimously passed a ban on plastic bags and required businesses to charge a nickel for paper bags, city leaders believed it would be better all around.

I love it when some asshats with temporary power the government "requires" things.

"I think we've gotten to a place where it's really going to work for the environment, businesses and the community in general," Councilman Mike O'Brien said at the time.

I love how these jackasses toss the word "we" around.  Hey, councilman, I think "we've" gotten to a place where "we" need to punish tyrants ... ever thought about that?

But the bag ban is contributing to thousands of dollars in losses for at least one Seattle grocery store, and questions have been raised about the risk of food-borne illness from reusable bags that shoppers don't often wash. More here:

Don't worry, safety is never an issue unless the government wants to shove some rule down your throat.

Politically Correct Police strike again


Has Joan Rivers gone too far (again)? 

The comedian has sparked controversy over a joke she made about Heidi Klum in a sexy Julien Macdonald dress at Elton John's AIDS Foundation Academy Awards party. 

"The last time a German looked this hot was when they were pushing Jews into the ovens," Rivers said of the German-born supermodel on Monday's episode of E!'s Fashion Police. 

The Anti-Defamation League's director Abraham H. Foxman, a Holocaust survivor himself, said in a statement that the comments were "vulgar and offensive to Jews and Holocaust survivors." 

The anti-Semitism watchdog group also criticized Rivers' Fashion Police co-hosts Giuliana Rancic, Kelly Osborne and George Kotsiopoulos, whom the statement says were "doubled over with laughter" after she made the joke. 

When asked for comment, Rivers, who is Jewish herself, told The Hollywood Reporter, "My husband lost the majority of his family at Auschwitz, and I can assure you that I have always made it a point to remind people of the Holocaust through humor." From here:

Can you believe these people?  No jokes about Jews, no jokes about slavery, blah blah ... the "Political Correctness Police" shoving people around. Hey, jackasses, how about you leave people alone?  How would that be?

But no, they won't be leaving you alone.  You see, for some people, their only "claim to fame" as it were is their vigilance against .... something.  Oh yes, they have their eyes and ears open ... ready to strike at any perceived slant.  And they've trained themselves to twist the slightest mention of their topic into a strike against society itself. 

Oh yes, and don't you forget ... it's of the UTMOST importance.  Because if it were not, these people would have to do something else besides whine and sound off like Joan of Arc being burned at the stake every time someone gives them an opening.
