Question Answered

You know even if Romney wasn't the ideal candidate, the question asked after Obama won another term is how could we have lost?
I believe this video answers the question very nicely.

Some people scoff at the idea that Obama voters are low information, seems pretty evident that they are to me.

More News Speak

What is it with the liberal/commie/media and their desire to always change the language  of a debate to make it a little more palatable?
Add this to the new vernacular along with "same sex marriage", "opposite sex marriage", "undocumented immigrant" and "laser like focus".
“How do you respond to that with such a dramatic closure of access to choice providers for women?”
Yup, choice providers is now the new liberal buzzword for abortion, I suppose it makes low information voters  feel better about ignoring abortion mills like Kermit Gosnells abortion abattoir. But les's not forget about the liberal/commie state and federal officials that ignored the conditions, even when confronted with them,
Funny how they try and redefine it after the "pro-choice" crowds taken such a beating over the last few months.

Bradley Manning Verdict

So Bradley Manning was found guilty of every other charge except "aiding the enemy" or at least that's what most liberal news sources headlined with today.

Politico Bradley Manning trial verdict: Acquitted of aiding the enemy, convicted on lesser charges

U.S.News Manning acquitted of aiding enemy but convicted on other charges

Reuters Bradley Manning verdict: Judge finds soldier in WikiLeaks case not guilty of aiding enemy

I mean it goes on and on with the liberal/commie media seeming to signal their relief that Bradley ain't facing the consequences for his actions. Which in the case of "aiding the enemy" could have been life in prison of execution.
Of course they're basically just glossing over the other 19 counts of him leaking classified information which are serious enough on their own.

The guy is no hero, he purposely gave information to a foreign entity who's main desire is to damage the U.S. as much as possible and of course the liberal/commie media is cheering him on.

Personally I hope he gets the maximum possible for his "lesser" crimes maybe it'll inspire other whistle-blowers to find other ways to divulge government wrong doing with out passing them to enemies of the state.

Could Weiner Pull Out?

It seems that voters want him too.

Poll: Voters Want Weiner Out
A majority of likely voters in September's Democratic primary think Anthony Weiner should end his candidacy to be New York's next mayor, and while a new Quinnipiac University poll shows the disgraced former congressman retains a sizable base of support and remains in the running to advance to an October 1 runoff for the top two finishers, he stands little chance of advancing past that runoff to a general election in November.
The poll, conducted entirely after revelations that Weiner's online dalliances with various women continued well after his resignation from the House, shows City Council Speaker Christine Quinn is back in front, with the backing of 27 percent of likely primary voters. Public Advocate Bill de Blasio is second, at 21 percent, virtually tied with former Comptroller Bill Thompson at 20 percent. Weiner now runs fourth, with 16 percent, the poll shows. Seven percent of likely voters are undecided.
This does represent a drop for Weiner: In a Quinnipiac poll conducted just before Weiner admitted his virtual infidelities continued later that previously disclosed, Weiner led Quinn, 26 percent to 22 percent. But the new survey shows that Weiner remains tenuously in contention; because the poll carries a margin of error of plus-or-minus 4.6 percentage points, Weiner is technically within the margin of error for second place.~snip~
It actually seems that there are enough degenerate democrats in NYC who still actually support the guy. I wouldn't hold my breath expecting him to withdraw from the race. Weiners sense of entitlement is to massive to allow him to do that. Why else would he put his wife through a public spectacle?
A lot of people thought Bill Clinton's dalliance with Monica would finish him but guess what?
It didn't, I doubt Weiner will quit and there is still time for him to increase his poll numbers.
As long as another shoe doesn't drop.

On another note Maureen Dowd takes a shot at excusing Huma Abedin "standing by her man" by blaming it on her upbringing in Saudi Arabia "where women are treated worse by men than anywhere else on the planet".
But of course she offers nothing to explain why Hillary Clinton stayed with her lecherous husband. 

What it comes down to is that liberal/commie democrats will find any way they can to justify anything so long as they can assume power.

Former Mayor Crackhead endorses Weiner

Good news!!
Another former democrat mayor with poor judgment approves of Weiner as a "good democrat". I suppose it takes one to know one.

Marion Barry: Weiner a 'good Democrat'
Former Washington, D.C. Mayor Marion Barry said Anthony Weiner is a "good Democrat" who should be talking more about his accomplishments in Congress.
In an interview Saturday night on Geraldo Rivera's show on Fox News, Barry said, "One bit of advice to the congressman: I'd stop talking so much about now and start talking about what you did for seven terms while he was in the Congress. He's a good Democrat."
A couple weeks ago, Barry said he can "identify" with what Weiner is going through.
Earlier in the interview, Barry and Rivera clashed about the ex-mayor's past brushes with the law.
Barry, who is now a D.C. Council member, balked at Rivera's characterization of his past drug scandals.~snip~
Does anyone else not see the pattern here?
Apparently a good democrat consists of having poor judgement and a piss poor moral compass. It's also a contradiction in terms.
I gotta ask, out of 350 million people in this country why is this the best we can do as far as leadership?

The Dying Middle Class

I would think that anyone who has been paying attention to the news today would have read this article.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Four out of 5 U.S. adults struggle with joblessness, near poverty or reliance on welfare for at least parts of their lives, a sign of deteriorating economic security and an elusive American dream.
Survey data exclusive to The Associated Press points to an increasingly globalized U.S. economy, the widening gap between rich and poor and loss of good-paying manufacturing jobs as reasons for the trend.
The findings come as President Barack Obama tries to renew his administration's emphasis on the economy, saying in recent speeches that his highest priority is to "rebuild ladders of opportunity" and reverse income inequality.
Hardship is particularly on the rise among whites, based on several measures. Pessimism among that racial group about their families' economic futures has climbed to the highest point since at least 1987. In the most recent AP-GfK poll, 63 percent of whites called the economy "poor."
"I think it's going to get worse," said Irene Salyers, 52, of Buchanan County, Va., a declining coal region in Appalachia. Married and divorced three times, Salyers now helps run a fruit and vegetable stand with her boyfriend, but it doesn't generate much income. They live mostly off government disability checks.~snip~
That it comes from the AP is what's really amazing, usually they're very  pro Obama and loath to report on anything critical of him. Which is why you see the excuses right up front.
Things like globalization, the rich and poor gap and the loss of good manufacturing jobs without going into a lot of detail why those conditions exist.
Kindle Fire 7" Tablet, 8GB B0085ZFHNW (Google Affiliate Ad)
Although later on they do hint to the problem of single motherhood and then separate the statistic of more children living in poverty. Like there is no correlation between the two.
 Globalization and the lack of manufacturing jobs can be linked to the draconian obstacles that liberal/commie democrat politicians place in front of business driving them to other business friendlier areas.

Knowing the what does nothing to solve the why, making excuses for the piss poor administration that we have does nothing to confront them with their failure to stimulate growth in the jobs sector.

We all know what the problem is so the question is when will the media confront and make this administration accountable for these dismal statistics and demand to know what they are going to do about it.

Weiner Weasels Out

I would think that anybody in NYC should be concerned about how Weiner could justify any kind of moral authority to govern their city.
If he has no problem lying to and humiliating his wife, who he is supposed to care and love for above all others, then what's to keep him from lying to and humiliating his constituents? But of course he dances around this woman's question because obviously he thinks he doesn't owe the voters an explanation about his shameful behavior.

I personally can't believe that Weiner expects the people of NYC to turn themselves over to this guy and if they do then they deserve to be lied to and humiliated.

Obama to "Pivot" on Jobs, Depending on Global Warming.

Obama, sabotaging the middle class since 2008.

Obama criticizes pro-Keystone pipeline jobs, gas price claims
President Obama said the proposed Keystone XL oil sands pipeline would not be a major job creator and could increase gasoline prices, but added that the White House decision will rest on climate change
“Republicans have said that this would be a big jobs generator. There is no evidence that that’s true,” Obama said in a New York Times interview published Saturday.
Obama, in some of his most extensive remarks ever on the pipeline, also said Canada could “potentially be doing more” to curb emissions from the oil sands.
His comments follow his closely watched late June pledge that Keystone XL would only receive a federal permit if the “net” effects of the pipeline would not “significantly exacerbate” carbon pollution.~snip~
Where he gets the idea that approval for the pipeline wouldn't create jobs is a mystery to me but I gotta give him the credit for realizing that gasoline prices will rise. But not because of the Keystone XL pipeline but because of the the EPA's obstinate obstructionism to building more refineries.

As far as the "climate change" scare tactic well, there hasn't been any global warming for at least the last 15+ years.

So much for the Obama "pivot".

Monument Vandalized, Jim Carrey Approves

So a guy who's from Canada and came here to reap millions from the corporate film industry approves of defacing a monument to Lincoln.
July 26, 2013Green paint on Lincoln memorial. Ppl are getting tired of corporate tyranny disguised as democracy. ;^\
Honestly why do we tolerate these asshats? I mean really, what has he done that's anywhere close to being proud of other than take big money from Hollywood for his dismal crap?

Dumb and Dumber didn't elevate anything and The Incredible Burt Wonderstone was a complete flop.
Personally I'm getting tired of no talent hacks expressing their clueless opinions.

IRS Union, No Obamacare for us

Want to know how good Obamacare is?
Even the IRS employees union wants no part of it.

IRS employee union: We don’t want Obamacare
IRS employees have a prominent role in Obamacare, but their union wants no part of the law.
National Treasury Employees Union officials are urging members to write their congressional representatives in opposition to receiving coverage through President Obama’s health care law.
The union leaders are providing members with a form letter to send to the congressmen that says “I am very concerned about legislation that has been introduced by Congressman Dave Camp to push federal employees out of the Federal Employees Health Benefits Program and into the insurance exchanges established under the Affordable Care Act.”
The NTEU represents 150,000 federal employees overall, including most of the nearly 100,000 IRS workers.
Like most other federal workers, IRS employees currently get their health insurance through the Federal Employees Health Benefits Program, which also covers members of Congress.
House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Dave Camp offered the bill in response to reports of congressional negotiations that would exempt lawmakers and their staff from Obamacare.~snip~
These are the people that are going to have Carte Blanche to all our health and financial records yet as always think that what is good for the lowly citizens of this country isn't good enough for them.
They deign to decide if our politics are acceptable and now want to place themselves above us lowly serfs who don't have the option of declining Obamacare.

What could go wrong?

The Comprehensive Immigration Reform Lie

I ran across this article in the Wall Street Journal about some small businessmen in Georgia complaining about having to use E-verify to check and see if anyone applying for a job with them is legally allowed to work in this country.
They ain't liking it at all.

Small Businesses Say U.S. Background-Check System Has Drawbacks
Since January, Daniel VanLoh has turned away nine new dishwashers and one line cook from his four Atlanta, Ga., restaurants within days of hiring them.
The reason: Not one was authorized to work in the U.S., according to background checks he ran on the job applicants using a federal verification system, known as E-Verify.
He says he's now struggling to fill six openings, with some job seekers simply walking away after hearing that the company uses the free, Internet-based system to check their immigration status.
To date, Mr. Van Loh's firm, Rocket Farm Restaurants LLC, has used the system to check 180 recruits. "It has significantly increased our recruiting costs," he says. "We spend time and money recruiting and doing background checks on good candidates, and if the E-Verify comes back with a rejection, we have to start the process all over again."
Recruiting dishwashers is the most difficult. The jobs pay only $8 an hour, or 75 cents more than the federal minimum wage, and they involve a great deal of heavy lifting.
Launched in 1997, E-Verify matches job applicants' Social Security numbers and other identification against a national database kept by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, a federal agency under Homeland Security. Those who return a mismatch are deemed to be unauthorized to work. As of July 20, 467,328 employers nationwide, big and small, were enrolled in the system, according to immigration agency data.~snip~
Of course employers have been supposed to check employees eligibility since Ronald Reagan granted amnesty back in 1986. Where again the promises of controlling the border and worker verification were broken by the leftist/commie obstructionists and illegals continued to flood across until we find ourselves looking at "comprehensive immigration reform again".

The truth of it is that illegal immigrants provide unscrupulous employers with a labor base that they can under pay and exploit at will. These types of employers don't want real immigration reform, what they want is a totally compliant labor base, as one guy who owns a business here said to me "I like hiring illegals because I can work them into the ground and pay them shit and they'll come back for more".
Of course not all employers are like that but there are enough to keep illegals flowing across the border.

What "comprehensive immigration reform" will give them in the short term is a pool of low skilled (read low wage) workers that they will be able to "legally" hire. But how long do you think that will last?
A half generation, a full generation? depends on how fast unions and socialist backed "workers rights" groups get  to them.
Then they won't be content with low pay, long hours and crappy conditions. Like any other American they'll want a quality of life, higher income and then the whole cycle will begin again.

The answer to illegal immigration is to wean these employers off of the availability of illegal exploitable workers and require all businesses to use E-verify and to fine those employers who hire illegals.
The problem is not just illegals coming here to take American jobs, it's also the employers giving them one.

Obama's Assassination of the Middle Class

So basically Obama gives his major speech on his "pivot" on jobs and resurrecting the middle class and it ends up being the same old,same old.

You know it's gotta be a stinker when even the liberal/commie Yahoo news posts an article telling Obama there ain't much he can do about it.
Even though the article tries to blame the republican congress the majority of commentators ain't buying it.

There's lots that Obama can do about the employment situation and they won't cost taxpayers a dime.
For one thing he can repeal the god awful Obamacare legislation, I mean the problems with that are to numerous to mention but it is a major impediment.
Lowering tax rates on businesses and scaling back on the EPA and loosening environmental obstacles that prevent us from building more refineries for gasoline and all the other products that come from crude oil would be a start.
But see, fighting for the middle class is not on the agenda for Obama and his liberal/commie administration.
Sucking up to left wing special interests groups is.  
That's why we now have so many Americans leaving the labor force and why food stamp participation is so high.

If Obama really wants to help the middle class then all he has to do is get out of the way the free enterprise system will do the rest.

The Most Famous Weiner :Updated

Here's a guy with a lot of exposure. It seems that Anthony Weiner just can't help himself from waving his short comings around for various young ladies on line.
I've often wondered what their reactions would be if he was standing on a street corner dangling himself at women when they walk by?
In most places he would be arrested yet somehow, until his victims decide to reveal all, it's considered "private" while he's doing it online.
 Until it's not private.

For most people there would be consequences to this kind of behavior and there is an attempt to get him to quit the race and do what he really needs to do and just fade off into the sunset.

 Pressure mounts on Anthony Weiner to quit NYC mayoral race after sexting scandal
Anthony Weiner resisted calls to withdraw from the New York City mayoral race Tuesday after finding himself caught in another sexting scandal similar to the one that ended his congressional career two years ago.
Weiner admitted sending a woman sexually explicit photos and messages and acknowledged the activity took place as recently as last summer, more than a year after he resigned from the House in June 2011 for the same sort of behavior with at least a half-dozen women.
With his wife, Huma Abedin, standing an arm's length away from him, Weiner told a hastily called news conference he would stay in the race despite the new onslaught of negative publicity.
"I want to bring my vision to the people of the city of New York. I hope they are willing to still continue to give me a second chance," Weiner said.
In an editorial posted online Tuesday, the New York Times urged Weiner to drop out of the race, saying Weiner "should take his marital troubles and personal compulsions out of the public eye, away from cameras, off the Web and out of the race for mayor of New York City."~snip~
Even the New York Times, that bastion of liberal forgiveness in the face of outrageous scandal and incompetence, has called for him to bow out.

But you know what?

After thinking about it why should he?
With practically wall to wall coverage by the media when anybody asks about the NYC mayoral race the candidate most people know by name is Weiner. I mean really, how many other candidates can the majority of people name who' running for that office?
It's a low information voter gold mine for Weiner, people who pay little to no attention to what is really going on walking into a voting booth and seeing Anthony's last name and because they've heard it pull the lever for him.
It's a time honored liberal tradition in American politics, get the name out there good or bad, people will vote for what they know.In a city like New York waving his sch-long online and getting caught could be the best thing for him. Weiner becoming famous for whatever reason might be enough to make him mayor.

Here's a montage of Weiner trying to weasel out of his perverted predilections.

Spin Anthony spin!!!

Chaplains for Atheists?

I ran across this story before and thought to myself how, like all things radical atheists do, to be just silly.

Lawmakers battle over push to create military 'chaplain' for atheists
Members of Congress are set to square off over a push to create military chaplains for people who do not believe in God.
The effort to create a chaplain for atheists and "humanists" has been building over the last several weeks. While the title might sound inherently contradictory, supporters say the point is to give atheists in the military someone who will pro-actively reach out to them and facilitate meetings.
Jason Torpy, president of the Military Association of Atheists and Free Thinkers, claims that 23 percent of those in the military ranks assert no religious preference. And he argues chaplains are not providing enough "positive outreach and support" in the way "they do for all of those beliefs that aren't their own."
As might be expected, the campaign is running into some heated criticism.
Lawmakers turned away a Democratic-sponsored amendment last month that would have created the post -- and now, Republicans are trying to formally quash the idea, with an amendment to a defense budget bill that would require military chaplains to be affiliated with a particular faith.
"When it comes to the idea of an atheist chaplain, which is an oxymoron -- it's self-contradictory -- what you're really doing is now saying that we're going to replace true chaplains with non-chaplain chaplains," said sponsor Rep. John Fleming, R-La. "It's just total nonsense, the idea of having a chaplain who is an atheist." ~snip~
So apparently they're serious and and one has to question the sanity of someone so consumed by hatred for what other people simply believe.
Then it dawned on me, this is the liberal/commie's way of belittling and marginalizing Christianity again in order to make sure that a sense of morality doesn't interfere with their desire to put morally bankrupt people in positions of power.

Why else would we have the likes of Bill Clinton, Anthony Wiener, Elliot Spitzer or John Edwards all trying to get into public office?
The liberal/commies and atheists all ask what does it matter what these people do in their personal lives, it has nothing to do with their skills as politicians?

The difference is that we entrust our politicians with taxpayer money and believe their promises to strangers when they can't keep their promises to ones they are supposed to love and honor above all others.
If their real desire was to provide counselors for service members on a secular level (like the counselors or physiologists already provided) then why not call them "secular counselors" or something like that?
But that doesn't fit into the radical atheists plans to diminish and ridicule the position of "chaplain" which is the real goal of this push for an "atheist chaplain".
It's all in the intent and I believe that that is theirs.

The New Low in Liberal Media

Feminism has pretty much knocked women off the pedestal that they once stood upon in years gone by and for the most part I pretty much agree with the idea of equality for women. They are entitled to equal pay for equal work and more fulfillment in life than to be barefoot and pregnant.
But it doesn't seem enough to just knock the pedestal over.....some want to make sure it's ground into dust.

Here we have Melissa Harris-Perry donning a pair of tampon earrings ostensibly in solidarity with the women in Texas who are content with the borderline cleanliness and safety requirements for abortion clinics that existed before SB5 was passed.
Having been married I'm not offended by the sight of tampons, they exist to fill a need so to speak. But I've never known any woman in my life who would put them on display dangling from their body. I also have no idea what the purpose is or what tampons have to do with abortion or even what wearing them proves.

I suppose wearing them dangling from their ears is slightly more preferable than throwing them at Texas legislators, again not what they're designed for. Both of these scenarios show one obvious thing....a lack of class and decorum.
All pro abortion forces care about is winning, they don't care how ugly it is. Also for a news network to be so blatantly biased as to pick a side should be an indication of how the rest of their "news" is covered and can it be trusted.
People who watch these liberal/commie networks should be concerned about what they're not being informed about and demand better.

Wearing it on their Sleeve

Wow, Biased much AP?
Kaboom, with one tweet the AP shows without a doubt which side of the abortion issue they're on and by extension telling us which side we should be on.
Whatever happened to "just the facts" or the good old "who, what, when, where and why" standard?
This is a debate that Texans alone should be having seeing as how a majority are in favor of a 20 week ban on abortion.

The liberal/commie media bias is in full display all day every day now.

The Truth about Consequences

As the liberal/commie media continues to beclown themselves by having a snit fit over the George Zimmerman verdict there's a few things that they have left unsaid.
There's not a lot of "news" about the way that they twisted and distorted the truth to create an atmosphere of division for the socialist democrats to exploit during the 2014 elections.

There's a good possibility that NBC will face the consequences for their deliberate, fraudulent out and out lie of deceptive editing of the 911 tape in order to depict Zimmerman as a racist. Because that's what they do....deceive and lie for the benefit of the democrat party.

If you look at this timeline that lists the objectively terrible media behavior in the early days of the Zimmerman case last year, you will see how crucial NBC's fraudulent editing of a 911 call was in setting a media and political narrative that falsely claimed George Zimmerman is racist. This malicious edit made it look as though Zimmerman was profiling Trayvon Martin as black, when he was simply answering a dispatcher's question:
On the storied "Today Show," NBC News told America Zimmerman said this on the 911 call:
Zimmerman: This guy looks like he’s up to no good. He looks black.
When the truth is that the unedited audio actually went like this:
Zimmerman: This guy looks like he’s up to no good. Or he’s on drugs or something. It’s raining and he’s just walking around, looking about.
Dispatcher: OK, and this guy — is he black, white or Hispanic?
Zimmerman: He looks black.
Once NBC's fraud was publicly debunked, George Zimmerman filed suit against the network. After his acquittal last week, Zimmerman's attorneys said they will now turn their energies towards NBC. ~snip~
The truth, of course is whatever way the liberal/commie media wants to spin it and all of the mainstream media will be in on it. Don't expect a whole lot of "reporting" from the other liberal/commie news outlets about this lawsuit. It's not something they want to encourage, I mean accountability is something that the liberal/commie media thinks is beneath them.

What's really discouraging in my opinion is that even if they are found guilty of fraud and libel or whatever and rightly have to pay out millions in damages it will hardly make a dent in their credibility for millions of people that consume their tripe.
I wonder how much malfeasance and absolute fraud it will take before Americans start demanding that the media simply tell the truth once in a while.

Got a Match?

Here's how the Tampa Bay Times decides to announce that George Zimmerman's fate lies with the jury.
They ain't deciding whether he "deserved it" they're deciding if he shot Martin in self defense or not, if Zimmerman committed a crime.

My take on this is that the liberal/commie media ginned up the whole thing in order to create more race resentment so that various democrat politicians and race hustlers can continue to exploit it for political gain.
Otherwise this would have just been a tragic local story no worse or better than any one of dozens of shootings every day in places like Chicago or Detroit, New York. Ya know, all those places that have liberal/commie democrats running them.
At first the whole thing fit into the anti-gun, black against white narrative that the liberal/commie media is trying to push. Until they found out Zimmerman was hispanic so they crawled back into their back rooms and came up with absurd descriptions of him as a "white hispanic" or "self described hispanic" all in an effort to push the idea of "other". An "us vs. them" narrative that the liberal/commie media just won't give up on.

The only reason that they're even covering this story is because they can exploit it.
Which is all the biased liberal/commie media seems interested in doing anymore, exploiting others for a liberal agenda and making fools out of the public.

Common Sense Not Required

Here's the media's incompetence and malfeasence on full display.

KTVU Apology for Friday Noon report
We made several mistakes when we received this information. First, we never read the names out loud, phonetically sounding them out.
Then, during our phone call to the NTSB where the person confirmed the spellings of the names, we never asked that person to give us their position with the agency.
We heard this person verify the information without questioning who they were and then rushed the names on our noon newscast. 
I mean really....wouldn't you think the talking head reading the copy and pronouncing the first name have a light bulb come on and realize they had been had?

First off this is hilarious, second ....I can't believe there are people out there that hang on every word the media spouts off. If this is the kind of stuff we depend on for news then Ho Lee Fuk.

Societies Media Parasites

    The definition says it all and apparently more Americans are waking up to the fact.
    Pew Poll: 27 Percent Say Journalists Contribute Little or Nothing to Society
      The share of the public saying that journalists contribute a lot to society is down 10 percentage points, from 38 percent in 2009 to 28 percent in 2013.  The drop is particularly pronounced among women (down 17 points)...

      The decline in public views about journalists’ contribution to society since 2009 is more pronounced among women than men. Roughly three-in-ten women (29%) say journalists contribute a lot to society’s well-being, down 17 percentage points from 46% in 2009. Men’s views on this are about the same today as they were in 2009.

      The decline in the perceived contribution of journalists cuts across partisan leanings, age and education level. Democrats and Democratic-leaning independents as well as Republicans and Republican-leaning independents all are less likely to say journalists contribute a lot to society’s well-being today (down 8 points among Republicans/leaning Republicans and 10 points among Democrats/leaning Democrats).
Since the liberal/commie media's cheerleading for the ascension of Obama during the last 2 presidential elections they've pretty much openly abdicated their role as watchdogs of the government to expose cronyism and corruption. Because the media has become pretty corrupt itself. 
The way the liberal/commie media covers for Obama and his administration is so obvious it's nauseating.
Again I'll let the definition speak for itself.
    1. an animal or plant that lives in or on a host (another animal or plant); it obtains nourishment from the host without benefiting or killing the host

    2. leech: a follower who hangs around a host (without benefit to the host) in hope of gain or advantage

So all it takes is expressing an opinion to get yourself sued if your opinion is for traditional marriage.

Vt. B&B settles lawsuit with gay couple
LYNDONVILLE, Vt. (BP) -- A Vermont bed and breakfast has settled a lawsuit brought by the state's Human Rights Commission and two women who wanted to have a same-sex wedding reception on the inn's property.
The Wildflower Inn in Lyndonville agreed to pay $10,000 to the Vermont Human Rights Commission as a civil penalty for violating Vermont's Fair Housing and Public Accommodations Act as well as $20,000 in a charitable trust to be controlled by the couple, the Burlington Free Press reported Aug. 23.
"The Wildflower Inn has always served -- and will continue to serve -- everyone in our community. But no one can force us to abandon our deeply held beliefs about marriage," owner Jim O'Reilly, a Catholic, said in a statement. "Our beliefs haven't changed, but we do have lives to live, a family to love, a business to grow, and a community to serve.
"Small businesses like ours cannot match the limitless resources of the government and the ," O'Reilly said. "Ongoing litigation like this can cripple any small business and the livelihood of its owners, so we're relieved to put this ordeal behind us."
The story dates back to 2005 when two other women asked Wildflower to host their civil union ceremony and O'Reilly said he would be willing to host the ceremony in compliance with state law but disclosed his belief that marriage is the union of one man and one woman.
It's not enough to simply comply with the law you also have to keep silent about what you believe. The right to speak freely is being whittled away piece by piece by those hell bent on forcing society to not only just condone but to mindlessly approve.
Next step will be bankrupting churches and religious institutions for teaching their moral beliefs.

Sarah Palin,Rent Free and Living Large

Sarah Palin says she's considering running for the Senate from Alaska.
I think it would be great but that isn't my first motivation in posting this, it's the image of thousands of liberal/commie heads exploding all over the country just at the idea.

Truth be told I just love the way the mere mention of her name brings out the foaming of the mouth, pissing their pants derangement that liberal.commies have.
Electing her to the senate would be a well deserved thumb in the eye to the deranged leftists out there.

As an aside, if you really want to see how unhinged the left is over someone who is so irrelevent then check out the comments of each of these articles.

A Vagina's Got a Gun

Sometimes you just can't make this stuff up, while liberal/commie feminists in Texas are screaming for government to keep out of their vaginas by creating odes to crotch holsters.
 The poem, by Katie Heim:
If my vagina was a gun, you would stand for its rights,
You would ride on buses and fight all the fights.
If my vagina was a gun, you would treat it with care,
You wouldn’t spill all its secrets because, well, why go there.
If my vagina was a gun, you’d say what it holds is private
From cold dead hands we could pry, you surely would riot.
If my vagina was a gun, its rights would all be protected,
no matter the body count or the children affected.
If my vagina was a gun, I could bypass security,
concealed carry laws would ensure I’d have impunity.
If my vagina was a gun, I wouldn’t have to beg you,
I could hunt this great land and do all the things men do.
But my vagina is not a gun, it is a mightier thing,
With a voice that rings true making lawmakers’ ears ring.
Vaginas are not delicate, they are muscular and magic,
So stop messing with mine, with legislation that’s tragic.
My vagina’s here to demand from the source,
Listen to the voices of thousands or feel their full force.
One woman is going to serve time for just that.

Woman Who Hid Gun In Vagina Gets 25 Years
JULY 8--The Oklahoma woman who had a loaded handgun concealed in her vagina when she was arrested earlier this year on a drug charge has been sentenced to 25 years in state prison, according to court records.
Christie Dawn Harris, 28, last week entered no contest pleas to three felony counts during a hearing in Pontotoc County District Court. Harris, whose rap sheet already includes multiple felony convictions, copped on June 27 to possession of methamphetamine with intent to distribute, gun possession, and bringing contraband into jail.
Judge Steven Kessinger sentenced Harris to serve 25 years on each count, with the penalties to run concurrently. He also ordered her to pay $1363 in court costs and fees.~snip~
So, by the logic of the liberal/commie feminists in Texas, shouldn't they be outraged by this woman being prosecuted for what was in her vigina?
I mean what business was it of the governments to look in there anyway?
Also shouldn't the liberal/commie feminists in Texas be flooding into Oklahoma to protest this egregious violation of her vagina?
I'd be really interested to know why not.

Learn to Love Your Big Government Overlords!!!

He actually didn't literally say "love your government overlords" but he might as well have.
There seems to be this constant need by Obama and his liberal/commie minions to extol upon us the virtues of big government and the nanny state. Where they do all and know all.
Funny thing is that no one at present realizes the tremendous power government will have once Obamacare kicks in to see all and know all about every facet of you and your families lives.
Yet no one seems to be concerned about that even after all the fuss about the IRS and the NSA leaker.
I fail to understand why people want to turn that much power over to the state, no matter who's in charge.

The Obama Administration's Neglect

From Reuter's, I guess pigs do fly.
Obama's been enjoying himself at the taxpayers expense while the middle class shrinks and employment has stagnated since his inauguration.
David Rohde asks what does it say to the youth of Egypt that Obama goes golfing and Kerry suns on his yacht?
It says welcome to the incompetence and neglect America has suffered while Obama and the democrats hold power, not only do they not care about what's happening here but they couldn't care less what is happening in Egypt either.
You've been abandoned by the "leadership" here....welcome to the club.

Media Befuddled by Egypt

I was watching the CBS comedy called the nightly news the other day and was struck by the talking heads utter bewilderment that democratically elected president, like Morsi, could be just thrown out.

U.S.-Egypt relationship uncertain after Morsi's ouster
Days of tense street demonstrations in Egypt built to a dramatic climax on Wednesday, when the Egyptian military removed the Muslim Brotherhood-backed President Mohammed Morsi from power, installed a temporary civilian government and called for new elections.
Morsi denounced the move, labeling his ouster a "full coup," but he was ultimately unable to leverage his status as the first democratically elected leader of Egypt to remain in power.
Whether President Obama's administration agrees with Morsi's assessment that his removal was a "coup" could have significant ramifications for the future of the U.S.-Egypt relationship, particularly the continuation of roughly $1.3 billion in annual aid provided to the Egyptian military.~snip~
I suppose that they believe that no matter how oppressive or incompetent a country's leader is, if he was elected by a majority of constituents then they don't have a right to realize that they made a mistake and the attempt to show him the door.
(Makes you wonder what other oppressive and incompetent leader they may be preemptively covering for.)

In a true democracy the people have a right to choose another leader if the one elected cannot or will not perform his duties as promised or expected. Morsi was bent on turning Egypt over to radical Islamists enshrining sharia into the law and, like Obamacare, very hard to get rid of when fully implemented.
He and the Muslim Brotherhood oppressed minorities, meaning anyone who wasn't a muslim. 
The people weren't going for it, so they exercised their right to protest and force him out. Democratically elected doesn't mean you got to live with the mistake forever.

The Other New Normal

I guess getting used to having gas prices consistently hovering around 3 dollars a gallon isn't enough. We also have gotten used to unemployment hanging at 7.6% or more.

54 Months: Record Stretch of 7.5%+ Unemployment Continues
( - Since January 2009, when Barack Obama was inaugurated as president, the United States has seen 54 straight months with the unemployment rate at 7.5 percent or higher, which is the longest stretch of unemployment at or above that rate since 1948, when the Bureau of Labor Statistics started calculating the national unemployment rate.
Today, BLS reported that the seasonally adjusted national unemployment rate for June was 7.6 percent, the same it was in May.
In December 2008, the month after Obama was first elected and the month before he was inaugurated, unemployment was 7.3 percent. In January 2009, it climbed to 7.8 percent. In February, the month Obama signed what the Congressional Budget Office would later determine was an $830 billion economic stimulus law, the unemployment rate climbed to 8.3 percent.
In the Obama era, the unemployment rate peaked at 10.0 percent in October 2010. It did not dip below 9 percent until October 2011, when it hit 8.9 percent.  From August to September 2012, it dropped from 8.1 percent to 7.8 percent—the first time during Obama’s tenure it went under 8 percent.
Since then, the lowest it has gone has been 7.5 percent—the rate it hit in April. But after April, it ticked back up to 7.6 percent in May and stayed at 7.6 percent in June.~snip~
Add to that number of workers at involuntary part time as opposed to full time and we have a shift in wealth all right as our middle class shrinks. All thanks to Obamacare as employers try to avoid the penalties mandated by it.
It's a shame that the war on the middle class doesn't get the same amount of press as the "war on women" or even the george Zimmerman trial.

Gas Prices and the New Normal

Some good news, gas prices are going down some. The bad news is on average they're about 15 cents more than last year.

Gasoline prices begin summer slide
While analysts are not expecting a resulting surge in gasoline prices, they could rise quickly if the Mideast unrest does disrupt oil supplies. Gas could also climb if a hurricane threatens the heart of the refining industry along the Gulf Coast.
This year's early summer decline, while welcome, is smaller than the seasonal drops of the last two years, when gas prices also fell between Memorial Day and Independence Day. Gasoline is 15 cents more expensive than it was last year at this time.
Gas prices typically rise in late winter or early spring when refineries perform maintenance and switch from making winter gasoline blends to the more complex summer blends required for clean-air rules. When the nation's refineries aren't operating at full strength, supplies drop and prices rise. Once the maintenance is done, output rises and prices fall.
"When refineries go down it can create immediate and severe havoc," Kloza said. "It's a very shallow distribution system, quick to fill and quick to empty."~snip~
There's been a decline in the number of refineries but the ones still operational have been fitted to refine more. But when one goes down it really creates havoc.
On top of the fact that we depend on oil from a region of the world that is, to say the least, pretty unstable. Whatever happens there affects the price of oil here.

That could be softened by the Keystone XL pipeline that the enviro-nazis are so up in arms about.....aided and abetted by Obama and various commie/democrats of course because whatever might be good for the middle class they're against.
Of course the government, local,state and federal has to have their cut.
Some U.S. drivers will be paying a little more because of higher gasoline taxes that went into effect July 1. California and Maryland taxes rose 3.5 cents per gallon, Connecticut's climbed 4 cents, and Wyoming's 10 cents. Virginia drivers are getting a break — gas taxes there are falling 6.4 cents.
Gasoline taxes account for the biggest difference in pump prices for U.S. drivers. Local, state and federal taxes vary from nearly 70 cents per gallon in New York, California and Hawaii to half that in Missouri, New Jersey, Oklahoma, South Carolina and Virginia, according to the American Petroleum Institute, the industry's chief lobbying group.
Which would be alright if they actually used those taxes for road and highway improvement instead of putting into their general operating fund to spread the wealth around.
There's so many ways gas prices are manipulated to soak the middle class in this country that it's shameful, and we pay the price in higher fuel taxes and the cost of goods and services.
So when you're looking at the price at the pump and thinking you're getting a break paying 15 cents less this week than you were last week, remember how the government is getting richer and pandering to enviro-wackos for political gain and donations to their campaigns, while making you poorer and shortening the distance that a dollar will go just to get you to work and the grocery store.

We work for the government now, not the other way around.

Muslim Brotherhood Purge?

 I was looking at twitchy and found this thread where they're talking about the Egyptian army taking "revenge" against the Muslim Brotherhood whose motto happens to be:
  'Allah is our objective; the Prophet is our leader; the Quran is our law; Jihad is our way;  dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope."
It almost seems like they're feeling sorry for the misunderstood lads.
There was actually a reason that Hosni Mubarak outlawed the Muslim Brotherhood while he was in charge of Egypt.
The best one I could think of is because they were behind the assassination of Anwar Sadat because of the Camp David accord and peace treaty he signed with Israel in 1979.
Regardless of what the Obama administration and the liberal/commie democrats want you to believe, the Muslim Brotherhood isn't a civic or social organization. It exists for the sole purpose of spreading jihad in the name of Allah worldwide.
The truth is Egypt, and all other countries, would be better off if the Muslim Brotherhood was marginalized the same way the KKK is in the United States.

The fact that the Egyptian army knows enough to purge a failed ideology from their country is a lesson all aspiring democracies in the middle east should emulate.

MSM Moment of Clarity?

From CBS no less.
CBS' John Dickerson: Obamacare Roll Out Appears "Barely Operational".

Here you got the administration running around trying to get sports teams, librarians and anyone else he can find to sell it and CBS let it slip that government is pretty much incompetent on the roll out of the law.
Or are they.
It seems pretty convenient that the penalty for businesses has been delayed until after the 2014 elections. In other words they want to delay it just long enough to try and insure that it won't impact democrats getting re-elected. Since they're the ones who voted for it they don't seem to want to own it.
Pretty sneaky huh?

Rubio Tries Sucking Up

Rubio the RINO basically went out of his way to marginalize conservatives on the issue of illegal immigration.
In essence he's for the invasion of America by people who flout our laws and then expect a legal ticket to stay.

So in order to "make it up to us" he wants to be the sponsor of a bill to ban abortions after 20 weeks.

Rubio to Introduce Senate Bill to Ban Abortions After 20 Weeks
Senator Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) today agreed to be the lead sponsor of a Senate bill to ban abortion after an unborn child is 20 weeks old.  A similar measure passed the House last month and a state version is now being debated in the Texas legislature, where it is likely to be approved.
With Rubio’s presence, the bill is certain to gain enormous media attention and thus more national visibility for the issue of limiting late term abortions. Right-to-life groups have urged Rubio to take the lead on the issue, believing he would be the strongest possible advocate in the Senate. Several sources confirmed he’d agreed.
The bill faces an uphill fight in the Democrat-controlled Senate and a veto threat by President Obama.  But win or lose, Republicans and the leaders of the pro-life movement regard the 20-week ban as an especially favorable issue for their cause – and one that might strengthen GOP candidates in the 2014 midterm election.~snip~
As the article states, with a democrat-controlled Senate, it would be pretty much dead on arrival but obviously just sponsoring it Rubio hopes to rehabilitate his already tarnished image for attempting to open the floodgates for illegal immigration.
In other words he expects conservatives to compromise their values again when he attempts to run in 2016.
The question is, after all the lesser of 2 evils we've held our noses over and voted for anyway, are conservatives going to fall for it again?
I ain't.

How to Win Friends.....

....on the abortion debate?
Call on Satan!!

Or you could just exploit little children in an attempt to push your ghoulish agenda.

I'm really interested to see how they are going to spin "abortion rights" as being "for the children".

I can't really understand what the big deal is with the pro-murder a child in the womb groups, all this bill does is limit abortions to 20 weeks and lays out a few requirements to make abortion a little safer.
Isn't that what Roe vs. Wade was supposed to do?
Make abortion clean and safe, for the woman anyway.
I find it amazing that not even Kermit Gosnell wasn't enough to make some women take a pause for a moment and consider what is really at stake here.

Check out the "Hail Satan!!" video here. Cahnman's Musings

Obama Backed Despot Morsi on his way out?

I've been kind of keeping an eye on what's been going on over in Egypt what with all the protests rejecting Mohamed Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood and can't help thinking that this is the guy that our fearless leader has been propping up since Mubarak was ousted.

The Obama administration fell all over itself to help this guy try and establish an Islamic state and the Egyptian people don't seem to want any of it....or they want something closer to a more secular government like they had before.
Obama sat back on his hands and let Libya be taken over by radical Islam allowing an American Ambassador and others to become trapped and then killed and is arming Syrian "rebels" who are closely aligned with Al Qaeda that do stuff like slaughter Christians and behead priests or cut out hearts and livers to eat.
Al Qaeda?
Wasn't that the group that trained and sent terrorists to crash planes into the world trade center and possibly elsewhere if one plane hadn't crashed into a Pennsylvania field?

Anyway the Egyptian military is threatening to intervene and Morsi is pretty defiant about it claiming he was democratically elected and gathering Islamists and members of the brotherhood to rally to his defense. Even as cabinet officials resign.
The military don't seem to be backing down either.

I don't believe that this will end pretty at all and of course Obama is still trying to prop up the Muslim Brotherhoods pick because that's what he does. Pander to terrorists.

I wonder what would happen if the Egyptian military starts to move against Morsi and all of a sudden  his supporters started showing up with weapons?

This can turn into a raging civil war, one that we need to stay out of and let the Egyptian military oust a possible Islamist despot and call for new elections. Because at this point any interference from the US would damage our reputation even further in the middle east.

Obama needs to quit turning over these countries to radical Islamic terrorists, for our security and theirs.
