An Ode to Mary Jo

Yesterday marked the 45 anniversary of the death of Mary Jo Kopechne and the cover up that allowed Ted Kennedy to become the "Lion of the Senate".
I was 15 years old at the time and the moon landing pretty much took center stage in the news cycle But I was aware that something had happened at Chappaquiddick Island involving Kennedy and a young woman who died.
Of course the media at the time used the moon landing as the big story to cover up information about the facts surrounding Teddy's total disregard for a human life.
He pretty much skated responsibility for his actions and has never really been held accountable.
Democrats and the liberal media have honed their skills at altering the narrative on many issues since then to hide the truth behind their own racism, sexism and misogyny.

Anyway, over the years the truth behind a lot of these things have finally come out. Unfortunately too late to really do anything about it.
Like holding them accountable.
Over on Twitchy there's a compilation of tweets by Brian Cates (@drawandstrike) that tells the story of Chappaquiddick.

Must read: User @drawandstrike tweets ‘epic rant about Chappaquiddick’

Also there is Y TED that goes into more detail.

If there ever was a more obvious instance of the media not doing their job and exposing their bias this is it.
Hopefully the era of the internet is the beginning of the end of mainstream medias deceptions and malfeasance in support of liberal/progressive democrats.

The Worms of the GOP

Personally I think it's a little obvious why conservative voters didn't support Romney. After all he was offered up by the RINO RNC.

GOP Moderates in Kansas Endorse Democrat for Governor
Some 100 moderate Republicans have turned against Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback and endorsed his Democratic challenger Paul Davis, Politico reported.
Old-school moderate Republicans have lost their place in the GOP-controlled Kansas legislature. They blame Brownback, who is a fiscal and social conservative.
Under Brownback, the state has set strict limits on abortion. Davis, however, said he would leave them in place. "We have one of the most restrictive abortion laws in the country, and I'm not going to seek to change the law," he said, according to Politico.
Davis breaks with Brownback on implementing a planned tax cut saying he prefers to use the money on education.~snip~
 I think it says a whole lot that "moderate republicans" are closer in ideology to a democrat than a fiscal and social conservative.
There's no doubt that this country needs to get democrats out of Washington,DC but we'll have to be realistic about the type of RINO the RNC will offer us again because the track record hasn't been so great.
Reversing the damage that Obama and the democrats have done will go very slowly until the RNC can be purged of its gutless, spineless RINOs and a wave of conservatives takes it over.

Obama Worshipper Update

I'm sure most people remember Peggy Joseph and her breathless support for the Obamessiah, It seems that almost 6 years later she's had an epiphany and has now realized that Obama isn't all that she hoped he would be. 
Her message now is to basically be leery of the man behind the curtain.

Denying the Consequences

As always liberal/progressives go full bore ahead with their ill considered ideas without looking far enough ahead to see the consequences.

Report: SMALL LIFELESS, DEAD CHILDREN Found “Washed Up Along Riverbank” of Rio Grande
“The life jackets helped many make it across the Rio Grande from Reynosa, the Mexican city across the water from Mission, just west of McAllen. Sources say they come over on rafts ferried by the so-called “coyotes,” the human smugglers whose means of transport are rendered useless whenever discovered by the Border Patrol. Many don’t make it across the river; multiple sources became emotional when recounting their discoveries of small, lifeless bodies washed up along the riverbank.”
The flood of illegal immigrant children to our borders can be directly connected to the Obama administrations lackadaisical enforcement of our immigration laws. While they are all wringing their hands and squealing about how we have to be compassionate they ignore the ever increasing body count of the unaccompanied minors who are dying in their rush to get here.
What we are seeing now is just the ones we find within our borders. There's no telling how many have expired on the other side and liberal/progressives don't want to know.
The reason is that all the dead children can be laid at the feet of of this administration. Their contempt for the rule of law and the encouragement of the open borders zealots contributes to these deaths as much as the heat, drownings, or abuse by smugglers.
It just goes to show once again that liberal/progressives are neither caring nor compassionate to others.
If they were they would care about the body count and finding a way to stop it.

Another Example of Government Competence

What's really disturbing about this is this is the same government that wants to be in charge of our health care and be able to sick the IRS on us if we don't comply.

The Selective Service just reminded 14,000 men born between 1893 and 1897 to register for the draft
Are you a man born in Pennsylvania between 1893 and 1897? If so, a government agency may have just reminded you to register for the draft.
The Selective Service System, which keeps a roster of potential men who can be enlisted in the military, inadvertently sent out mailings to more than 14,000 Pennsylvania men born in those years, reminding them to register.~snip~
Also I gotta ask, why is the Selective Service System holding onto 120 year old records?

Meanwhile Back at the IRS

With the plethora of scandals and incompetencies coming from the Obama administration and his various obedient minions in government it's easy to lose sight of each individual outrage against the country.
So here's a reminder that the investigation into the repressive IRS is continuing.
Slowly but it is moving along.

Lois Lerner cautioned against email chatter amid lawmaker probes
Former IRS official Lois Lerner said she warned her colleagues to be careful about what they write in emails amid congressional inquiries, according to new emails released by House Oversight Republicans.
She also asked whether the IRS’s internal messaging system could be searched, in the same email to an IRS colleague. It was sent April 9, 2013, less than two weeks after the IRS inspector general that unearthed the tea party targeting practice shared a draft report with the agency.
“I was cautioning folks about email and how we have had several occasions where Congress has asked for emails and there has been an electronic search for responsive emails — so we need to be cautious about what we say in emails,” she wrote to Maria Hooke, the director of business systems planning for the tax-exempt division. “Someone asked if OCS conversations were also searchable — I don’t know. … Do you know?”~snip~  
Because,you know, if we're not doing anything wrong we still need to be careful what we say in case anyone calls us out on it.
The IRS has unprecedented power to disrupt and ruin our lives and seems to feel that it is accountable to no one. Federal agencies are also havens for leftist partisan hacks who can undermine or support various administrations based on ideology.
Some people have called for eliminating the IRS and establishing a flat tax or some such other scheme and while that would be ideal....and fair it'll never happen. Basically because politicians use the tax code to further their ambitions. But, other than public sector unions, there is really nothing standing in the way of congress purging the agency of leftist partisan.
If not then they will simply be sleeper agents for leftist politicians and we will never be rid of these socialist.

What liberals ignore 'about the children' and immigration

When it comes to the flood of illegal immigrant children coming across the border and overwhelming the agencies trying to help them there is an abundance of hand wringing and demands for compassion.
 There's not a lot of that when it comes to the rising death toll that occurs when people who are ill equipped or weakened by disease expire in the heat of the desert.

For the last two years, Professor Lori Baker of Baylor University has been lending her expertise to helping identify the bodies of those who tried and failed to sneak into our country through the forbidden landscape at our southern border.
But this year, she is seeing something different. Professor Baker told Waco's KXXV TV that they have been seeing the bodies of children more often this year. "I think it's something right now where we're in a crisis," Baker told the TV news. "Now with the number of immigrants coming and the number of children, it's a disastrous situation."
The job is a complicated and often fruitless one, as the professor and her students have to work with multiple agencies in multiple countries. These multiple languages, various bureaucracies, and sometimes even distrust between nations complicate her job.~snip~
I really haven't seen a whole of reporting on the senseless loss of life that occurs because of the constant open border advocacy by liberal/progressives, Obama and the democrats. Republicans aren't blameless either but democrats can minimize this loss of life by closing the borders and to stop encouraging illegals, especially children, to make the journey in the hopes of fading away into the country.
There just doesn't seem to be the same level of compassion from liberal/progressives for the children who die and their bodies are left alone in the desert to be picked apart by scavengers.
This hypocrisy shouldn't be much of a surprise. Anyone who's been paying attention knows that liberal/progressives care about no one. Not gays,not minorities, not women and certainly not children.
All they care about is advancing their agenda, which is to turn the United States into their twisted version of socialist nanny state.
