CNN's Ashleigh Banfield...Idiot

It never ceases to amaze me how progressive liberal idiots continue to try and make comparisons between Christianity and Islam.
It's just one other way they show their stupidity by demonstrating that they don't know shit about either one.

CNN Anchor Draws Legal Parallel Between Catholic Teacher's Firing and Sharia Law Stoning
Chalk this one up to the absurd. CNN's Ashleigh Banfield on Wednesday tried to draw a legal parallel between a Sharia Law execution and a Catholic school firing a teacher for violating her contract by disobeying church teaching on pregnancy. Banfield argued both violated the teacher's Constitutional rights.
"Well if it's an Islamic school and they decide to go with Sharia Law and they decide to stone me for this, they can't do that either," Banfield ridiculously argued. "Then don't sign up to be the teacher," responded prosecutor Christine Grillo, who multiple times reiterated that the teacher had violated her contract.
The teacher in question, Christa Dias, was fired from her position with the Archdiocese of Cincinnati because she got pregnant through artificial insemination, contrary to the teaching of the Catholic church. Since her contract stipulated that she could not do that, Dias was fired.
Banfield was obviously frustrated with Dias's plight. "At what point, though, do their rules and regulations stomp all over your rights as an American?" she fretted, comparing the firing to segregation.
"Separation of church and state," answered Grillo. "You are deciding to work for a Catholic school. It's just like deciding to attend a Catholic school. You are there – you must abide by the rules and regulations or they are free at will to kick you out."~snip~
There's just so much stupid here I don't even know where to begin, but the first thing that jumps out is the vast difference between being fired from a job and being stoned to death. The former allows you to go out and whine about how your rights have been violated (which they weren't, she signed a contract to behave in a certain manner and didn't so she forfeited her job), the latter just simply allows you to die and then nothing.

I would think that the first thing liberal morons would notice is that that there are all kinds of reasons to kill someone in Islam, Christianity not so much.
Yeah I know all about what supposed Christians did in the middle ages to Jews, witches, muslims etc. but then again that's where their true ignorance really comes in. If they actually understood Christianity then they would know that even though those things were done in it's name, they were nowhere near Christian acts. They were committed by men for power, not for Christ.

CNN needs to quit hiring people to comment on subjects that they know nothing about.
It's embarrassing.

Michele Bachmann Calls it Quits

Michele Bachmann calls it quits and has decided not to run for reelection.
No surprise here as the left has continued to "Palinize" her in the media, both leftard and social.

Bachmann Won’t Seek Re-election Next Year

WASHINGTON — Representative Michele Bachmann, the Minnesota Republican whose status as a leading voice of the Tea Party movement in Congress has faded in the wake of a failed presidential bid and a widening investigation into her campaign spending, said Wednesday that she would not seek re-election.
Mrs. Bachmann, defiant as ever as she insisted that she would have won re-election had she tried, also said the legal inquiries had nothing to do with her decision. She vowed to continue to fight for the principles she said she holds dear: religious liberty, traditional marriage, family values and opposition to abortion.
“I fully anticipate the mainstream liberal media to put a detrimental spin on my decision not to seek a fifth term,” she said in a gauzy network-television-quality video posted on her campaign Web site. “They always seemed to attempt to find a dishonest way to disparage me. But I take being the focus of their attention and disparagement as a true compliment of my public service effectiveness.” ~snip~
What would be really great is if she turns to social media like Sarah Palin did and post her thoughts and opinions on current events.
Then she can also live rent free in leftard progressives heads.

Unions Doing the Heavy Lifting

You know if I were a dues paying member of a union then the picture to the left would really piss me off.

Labor big a real heavy sleeper
Union fat cat Mark Rosenthal spends more time sleeping at his desk than organizing labor, a series of damning photos reveals.
The 400-pound president of Local 983 of District Council 37 — the city’s largest blue-collar municipal-workers union — often downs a huge meal, then drops into dreamland in the early afternoon, members of the union’s executive board told The Post.
“He eats lunch when he arrives at work at 2 p.m. Then, like clockwork, he goes to sleep with a cup of soda on the table and the straw in it,” said Marvin Robbins, a union vice president.
“Then he wakes up, looks at his watch and says, ‘I have to get out before the traffic gets bad.’ He’s usually out by 4 p.m. after being at the office two hours.”
Rosenthal is a former Parks Department employee who rose to power campaigning to rid the union of corruption in the late 1990s.
He last made embarrassing headlines in 2009, when he inspired a City Council bill requiring jumbo-size ambulances for morbidly obese patients after he had a stroke at City Hall.
Since then, he hasn’t been making much of an effort to give the city’s ambulances a break and slim down. Union officials say he racks up $1,400 in monthly food bills on the union dime.
Much of the 5-foot-7, 400-plus-pound Rosenthal’s food tabs are for catered union events and meals he writes off as “union business,” board members claim.~snip~
The term "gravy train" takes on new meaning doesn't it?
 This guy knocks down $156,000 a year and claims he puts in 12 to 14 hour days, he doesn't say how many of those hours he's awake.
His salary, and the salary of others who hold these unaccountable gravy train union jobs comes from the dues of the members.
These are the guys who closed down Hostess, gave their members Obamacare and support democrat fat cats with the money paid to them by the rank and file. They also use those dues to rack up perks for themselves and their democrat buddies.

Is this what you guys think you deserve as representation?

OK, I'm Officially Torn

Here's one of those things where you're not sure whose side you should be on, the left wing nutjob or the conspiracy troofer nutjob.

Alex Jones responded to Rachel Maddow‘s skewering of his special tornado-weather-machine-conspiracy theory on his radio show Friday by saying she looks like a man.
After noting that the media was out to get him by hounding people he went to high school with, Jones said, “Or they could just do what Mr. Maddow does, I mean Janet Reno—Janet Napolitano! I get them all confused.” Jones pounded the desk in mock-frustration. “Pat from Saturday Night Live? No, no…Ron Maddow?”
“Nothing wrong with it, I mean, he’s a handsome guy.”~snip~
The best thing I suppose is to pop some corn and sit back and watch them go at it.

Done Nothing Wrong So I'll Plead the Fifth

Because innocent people refuse to answer questions that may incriminate them.

This is the kind of contempt that the Obama lead IRS has for the citizens it supposedly serves. One thing that everyone forgets is that these are the people who confiscate the fruits of your sweat, labor and intellect with the force of law and a gun if necessary.

The IRS is full of "Lois Lerner" types who suck off the public teat and then abuse their position along with displaying open disdain for the people the are supposed to serve.
Civil service is a stain on our society that should be granted only sparingly and limited in service.
It attracts the least competent and rewards them with perpetual employment on the taxpayers dime.
In other words it's chock full of progressive liberal commies.

Global Warming Hysteria

I've lived in "tornado alley" just about most of my life and up until just a few years ago tornadoes hitting communities were considered mostly local stories.
Now they've become national news and I think we all know the why.

Piers Morgan and Bill Nye Speculate on Climate Change’s Role in Deadly Okla. Twister

During CNN’s live coverage of the deadly Oklahoma tornado on Monday night, host Piers Morgan and Bill Nye speculated on the possible role of climate change in the disaster.
“As a scientist, when you hear about the size, scale, power, devastation of this tornado, what does it tell you about the ongoing debate about climate change?” Morgan asked his guest.
Nye said climate change has to be considered after a catastrophic weather event like the devastating tornado in Oklahoma. He also claimed 10 of the last 12 years are the “warmest years recorded.”~snip~

Also we knew this was coming.

 Boxer uses Okla. tornado to push carbon tax

California Democratic Sen. Barbara Boxer blamed the tornado that devastated Oklahoma on global warming during a Senate floor speech Tuesday, using the opportunity to push her own plan to tax carbon dioxide emissions.
“This is climate change,” Boxer said. “This is climate change. We were warned about extreme weather: Not just hot weather, but extreme weather. When I had my hearings, when I had the gavel years ago — it’s been a while — the scientists all agreed that what we’d start to see was extreme weather.”
“Carbon could cost us the planet,” Boxer added, plugging her own carbon tax bill, co-sponsored by Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders. “The least we could do is put a little charge on it so people move to clean energy.”
Never mind that there has been a decrease in the number of strong to violent tornadoes since the 50's.

There seems to be a misconception out there that "global warmists" and the modern progressive media care about what happens to the people in this country.
The truth is they don't, what they do care about is controlling every facet of our lives from birth to death and finding a way for us to pay heavily for being alive and using the "resources" of the planet. Of course they'll be the ones who decide how best to distribute the confiscated, by force, funds.

What happened to the people in Oklahoma city and other areas affected by tornadoes is tragic and they deserve all our efforts to help them.
What is reprehensible is the way the liberal progressive commie politicians and lapdog media stand upon the bodies simply to push their ill considered and heartless agendas.

It's time to call these clowns out for what they really are and stop buying into their blatant lies about them caring about anyone but themselves.

Complaining About the Smell of Bacon?

This is just wrong on so many levels.

Bacon restaurant shut down for smelling like bacon

It turns out that not everyone loves the smell of bacon.
A San Francisco bacon restaurant, fittingly called "Bacon Bacon,” was forced to shut its door on Friday after neighbors complained that the "porcine aroma" wafting from the establishment was too strong. 
According to the San Francisco Examiner, neighbors also alleged the store was illegally dumping bacon grease into the sewers and the restaurant lacked the proper health permits to operate the business.
 The restaurant may be able to secure a permit and resume operations, but a hearing cannot be held until July, so for now the restaurant will remain closed.~snip~
OK I get the other issues and proper permits and a way to dispose of the grease are concerns that need to be addressed but complaining about the smell?

Frying bacon is one of natures most gentle of alarm clocks, bacon itself is one of the the most perfect foods and gives countless forgotten men around the world a reason to get up and face the day.
Getting the permits won't stop the aroma of frying bacon.

If busy bodies can ban bacon then there is nothing they can't forbid.

It is to Laugh

Here's a funny idea.
Aside from the idea that anyone who doesn't walk in lockstep with the rigid liberal ideology is, by their definition, like..... just totally evil,is the thought that commie progressives would spend their own money on anything "for the common good".

Then add to it that one kind of billionaire is bad (The evil Kochs) yet other "one percenters" (Oprah and Beyonce) will somehow step up and do the right thing.
The Tribune company is up for sale because obviously the business model they have ain't working. Which is reporting the news from the liberal commie view.

Might as well just ask them to put the bong down and walk away.
BTW this video on Youtube has less than 10,000 views, seems they'll come up just a little short of what they need to raise.

Crowley Carrying Water for Obama Again

Candy Crowley is actually trying to put out an excuse of innocence for the IRS's deliberate targeting of groups opposed to the democrats progressive agenda?

When I got out of the service in the mid 70's the civil service had a program that they would hire veterans while they were attending school. I got a minor position at one and let me tell you it was an eye opener. Civil servants don't do squat unless it's authorized by someone above their pay grade.
It's not exactly the kind of career that encourages a lot of independent or original thinking.
Even the ones who finally approve something don't do it without the official okey-dokey of their supervisors.
The idea that it was just a few "rogue" employees is laughable. Even then liberals made up over 90% of government employees in that one agency.

I remember that they were dumbfounded when Jimmy Carter was kicked to the curb, that's how clueless those idiots were.
Handing over Obamacare to agencies that promote incompetents as opposed to firing them is a disaster waiting to happen.

Outrage over IRS's Unchecked Power

Rep. Mike Kelly gives the IRS a piece of Americans minds during Ways and Means committee hearings.

Funny how the IRS doesn't tolerate taxpayer errors at all but tries to invoke lame excuses for their own dereliction and malfeasance.
Again it has to be emphasized that this is the agency that will be responsible for enforcing Obamacare and will extend their tentacles into every aspect of our lives.

Opportunity Lost?

There is an opportunity here for the liberal lapdog main stream  media to redeem themselves for their blatant dereliction and incompetence in failing to properly vet Obama and their insistence on carrying his water for the last 5 years.
Between Benghazi, the IRS targeting opponents to the liberal agenda , the AP scandal and Kathleen Sebelius soliciting "donations" from  health industry officials whom she has direct authority over there should be plenty of  reasons for the press to really look into and expose the malfeasance and corruption of the Obama administration.

The whole idea of the creation of a free press is to have a ready group of watchdogs to watch the powers that be and expose their excesses and corruption to the public in order to keep them accountable to the people.

The next few weeks will tell, they will either continue to hold the administration's feet to the fire and show that they are a press for the people or they will find a way to excuse the violations of trust and transparency by the Obama administration and continue their slobbering love affair with everything Obama.  

They will either be for the people or become partisan political hacks....again.
And we'll either make them answer for it or or give up our right to a free and transparent government.       

Tuesday, May 14, 2013 the Masses!!!!!

Jon Stewart can't help noticing the ineptness and incompetence of this administration.

This is a big deal.
Now even low information voters can't ignore the scandals sweeping through Washington.

Liberal Paradise Detroit's Future Bleak

There are so many examples in our country of what happens to communities when liberalism runs amuck.

What was once a great city now is a festering cesspool.

Report by emergency manager says Detroit's finances are crumbling, future is bleak

Detroit is broke and faces a bleak future given the precarious financial path it's on, according to a new report out by the city's state-appointed emergency manager.
The report was released late Sunday by bankruptcy attorney Kevyn Orr and is his first on Detroit's finances since officially taking the job in March.
Under state law, the report was due within 45 days of Michigan's newest emergency manager law taking effect. Orr's spokesman Bill Nowling had warned last week that the report was an early look at Detroit's fiscal condition and would not be glowing.
The summation is the latest blow to the city which came under state oversight in March when Gov. Rick Snyder selected Orr to handle Detroit's finances. Then, the city estimated its budget deficit to be about $327 million. Detroit also has struggled over the past year with cash flow, relying on bond money held by the state to pay some of its bills.
But Orr reports that Detroit's net cash position was negative $162 million as of April 26 and that the projected budget deficit is expected to reach $386 million in less than two months.
He also warns that the city's financial health might change as more data is collected and analyzed.
"What is clear, however, is that continuing along the current path is an ill-advised and unacceptable course of action if the city is to be put on the path to a sustainable future."~snip~
I find it truly astonishing that there are so many in this country that wants this kind of rot and corruption for the entire nation.
Detroit is a canary in the mine type warning of what will happen to all of us if progressive policies aren't stopped and then reversed.
If not it will be generations before we will be able to dig ourselves out of liberalisms misguided ideas.

Government Guidos

My wife worked for a local hospital and was involved in billing. This particular hospital (like most I'm sure) employed certain collectors to harass and harangue what they considered the basest deadbeats of all. You know, the unemployed, the destitute, the extreme elderly who eat dog food 3 or 4 times a week to get by....and they were referred to as "Guidos".

Guidos used every dirty trick they could to humiliate and strong arm every penny they could get from the the clients they were assigned to.
They are the clowns that force many to seek bankruptcy protection and occasionally a few suicides to keep them from contacting their clients any further.
Well it seems that the Obama administration made an attempt to activate a few Guidos on his behalf.

Tea Party groups, Republicans slam IRS for flagging conservative groups

Tea Party leaders refused to accept an apology from the IRS Friday in which the agency acknowledged that it inappropriately flagged conservative groups for additional review during the 2012 election to see if they were violating their tax-exempt status.
Jenny Beth Martin, national coordinator for Tea Party Patriots, said she wants to see resignations over what she called the "disturbing, illegal and outrageous abuse of government power."
Republican lawmakers also seized on the acknowledgment, after having complained about the suspected harassment more than a year ago. Senate GOP Leader Mitch McConnell called for a "government-wide review" to assure "these thuggish practices" are not in use elsewhere. House Republican Leader Eric Cantor later said the House would investigate.
Reaction was swift and harsh after Lois Lerner, who heads the IRS division that oversees tax-exempt groups, acknowledged the issue at a conference Friday sponsored by the American Bar Association.
She confirmed that organizations were singled out because they included the words "tea party" or "patriot" in their applications for tax-exempt status. ~snip~
So the IRS says "oops".
Everyone wants to know who or if anyones heads will roll, I ain't holding my breath cause I know it ain't going to happen. All government agencies are overwhelmingly staffed with union owned left wing communist progressives and the IRS ain't immune.
Obama and the democrat party will give cover to the faceless leftist democratic operatives of every government agency that exists because they know they will be there long after they're gone.
For the last 50+ years the democrats and unions have been putting their hand picked minions into the positions of "civil servant" so that they can interpret the rules and regulations to benefit the progressive liberal communist party.
Want to eliminate the Washington, DC rot?
Fire all the union owned progressive leaning civil servants and hire only what's needed for essential services.
A clean sweep and then we might have a chance.

Oh, and by the way, remember that Obamacare gives the IRS even more sweeping powers. I'll bet you progressives are really looking forward to that.

Rising up for "My Education"

It's not news that over the last 40 years education is this country has been dominated by leftist union tools who, on a good day, do a little more than show up for a paycheck.
What is news is when the ones they are actually supposed to be teaching notice.

This is a video of a student calling out a lackadaisical teacher for not bothering to even try and inspire the students under her charge to learn.
More info about this can be found here.

Duncanville student's teacher rant goes viral

A Duncanville High School student who was kicked out of class lectured his teacher on his way out.
FOX4's Calvert Collins spoke with him after his rant, which was recorded by a fellow classmate.
His passionate speech has gone viral. It's gotten tens of thousands of hits and comments after it was posted online. The 90 second video message has caught the attention of newspapers and TV stations nationwide.
Jeff Bliss said he was standing up for his education but admits he could have handled it differently.
He hit a boiling point over a test in his World History class Tuesday morning.
"My question was, why we don't get the same amount of time to take the test as the rest of her classes," said Bliss.
He says his teacher replied with profanity telling him to stop his questioning and leave. That's when he erupted.
Dr. Alfred Ray wouldn't confirm if the teacher cursed at Bliss although he says she did.
Bliss says in the rant, "If you would just get up and teach them instead of handing them a freaking packet, there's kids in here who don't learn like that."
He then left the classroom.
Dr. Alfred Ray, the superintendent for Duncanville ISD said, "less than 10 minutes after it occurred, the teacher cared so much about her student that she went down to the office with the assistant principal while someone else watched her class and they had a conversation in that office and came to some agreement and the student came back to the class later that same period."
In an interview with Steve Eager, Jeff Bliss said one of his key points is the fact that it's not just about his education, it's about our education. "If we embrace this, I feel as if we can make a serious change and a positive change. But if we just want to ignore and push this to the side then I expect to see the same problems again and again."~snip~
The video on YouTube has almost 300,000 views and most support what he had to say.
When even students notice the piss poor techniques of the educator class who've devolved into a mere presence for a paycheck then it's time to re-evaluate our public education system.
The quote below is attributed to Albert Shanker, president of the United Federation of Teachers from 1964 to 1985 and president of the American Federation of Teachers (AFT) from 1974 to 1997
"When school children start paying union dues, that’s when I’ll start representing the interests of school children."
It's in dispute whether he made the quote or not, but one thing is clear.

Babbling Babs Boxer

Here's another incoherent tirade from Babs "don't call me ma'am" Boxer going off on republicans for boycotting a hearing on for the nominee of the EPA.

Mostly because they have the nerve to ask for some transparency from the administration....the cads.

Normally I'd say that her constituents should be ashamed of themselves for constantly re-electing her but it's California so obviously they have no shame.

More Media Bias

Lawrence O’Donnell shamelessly sucking up to Elizabeth Warren asking for her autograph while on air.
If the guy really admires her then why not wait until the cameras were off before kissing her ass?
The liberal commie media wastes no opportunity to show how deep in the tank they are for the democrat party and Obama.

CNN...Muted on Gosnell, Yukkin' it up Over Romney Advice

And what was Romney's advice?
Psalms 127:3-5

Why do they find someone encouraging others to build loving families so funny?
It's a shame they can't seem to focus that high toned, elitist perception to a multi-murdering baby killer but they seem to have plenty of time to go after our rights and make fun of middle class values.

Death by a Thousand Cuts

I read about a lot of crap that really just ticks me off to no end, so much so that sometimes I need to back away from the news feeds and do a little computer solitaire or something to clear my mind.
The stupid just becomes too painful to endure.

Take, for instance, the apparently successful media blackout of the Kermit Gosnell trial.

Good job liberal media, you're successfully covering for a mass murderer to advance your agenda of enabling more mass murder in the future. That's why people roll their eyes whenever you claim you care about the children.

Speaking of incompetent boobs, how about the judge who ordered Massachusetts to provide a sex change operation for a convicted murderer serving life in prison.

A pretty good rundown of this dirtbags crime can be read here.

Robert Kosilek: Rewarding the Man Who Murdered His Wife With a Free Sex Change Operation

First off lets just get away from the LGBT thing and consider for a moment that the guy/girl is serving life for murder, he/she committed a heinous crime against a person and society resulting in him being convicted for first degree murder. Common sense says the guy/gal pretty much abdicated his/her "rights" by depriving another of theirs.
He/she lost his/her freedom, can't vote, can't own a firearm and is told when to get up, when to eat, when to go to bed get a job buy a car and on and on.
But there is nothing cruel or unusual about getting a bed, three meals a day, shelter and not having to worry about going into debt or paying bills.....for the rest of his/her life.
All in all I'd say he/she should consider it all a wash.

If he/she hadn't committed the crime he/she was convicted of then he/she would be free to mutilate his/her body at his/her leisure.  
But since he/she is a convicted murderer his/her right to do to himself/herself what he/she pleases should be restricted to reflect the idea that he/she is being punished for depriving another human being of their life.

This should be a no brainer, he/she got himself/herself into the position he/she is in and should be made to live in it.
That's what individuals risk when they commit these kinds of acts. They lose the right to determine their own future.
That is something he/she took from his wife and it's only fair that he/she suffer the same fate.
