The Arrogance of the EPA

Looks like the IRS will have to share the moniker of most oppressive government agency with the EPA. While the IRS says "we'll do as we damn well please and don't have to answer to anybody" the EPA says basically the same thing.

EPA Chief Promises To Go After Republicans Who Question Agency Science
 Environmental Protection Agency administrator Gina McCarthy has issued a warning to Republicans who continue to question the integrity of the agency’s scientific data: we’re coming for you.
McCarthy told an audience at the National Academy of Sciences on Monday morning the agency will go after a “small but vocal group of critics” who are arguing the EPA is using “secret science” to push costly clean air regulations.
“Those critics conjure up claims of EPA secret science — but it’s not really about EPA science or secrets. It’s about challenging the credibility of world renowned scientists and institutions like Harvard University and the American Cancer Society,” McCarthy said, according to Politico.
“It’s about claiming that research is secret if researchers protect confidential personal health data from those who are not qualified to analyze it — and won’t agree to protect it,” she added. “If EPA is being accused of secret science because we rely on real scientists to conduct research, and independent scientists to peer review it, and scientists who’ve spent a lifetime studying the science to reproduce it — then so be it.”
Republicans Sen. David Vitter of Louisiana and Rep. Lamar Smith of Texas have led the charge on pressing the EPA to make publicly available the scientific data behind its clean air regulations. McCarthy promised she would make such data publicly available during her confirmation process last year. Now her refusal to cough up the data has angered Republicans.~snip~
On top of the fact that the EPA's regulations are helping push electric rates ever higher they don't seem to feel the need to justify their onerous regulations by sharing the data they use to continuously oppress the taxpayers with ever larger expenditures of our tax dollars.
This is another government agency that needs to be eliminated by congress.

Waiting for the MSM's Wall to Wall Coverage

For some reason I'm not holding my breath.

Race hate spewing Clippers owner is Democratic donor
According to records obtained by the independent data research tool – maintained by the Public Accountability Initiative – the owner of the LA Clippers embroiled in controversy has only donated to Democratic candidates.
Between 1990 and 1992 Donald Sterling made a $2,000 donations to the former New Jersey Senator Bill Bradley, a $1000 donation to current Vermont Senator Patrick Leahy, as well as a $1000 donation to the recalled former governor of California Gray Davis. Despite having a 100% track record of donating to Democrats, has no records of him donating to either of President Barack Obama’s election campaigns.
Donald Sterling was exposed Friday by TMZ making racially charged comments about African Americans to his girlfriend V. Stiviano in an audio recording.
Portions of the audio posted by TMZ included:
– “It bothers me a lot that you want to broadcast that you’re associating with black people. Do you have to?” (3:30)
– “You can sleep with [black people]. You can bring them in, you can do whatever you want.  The little I ask you is not to promote it on that … and not to bring them to my games.” (5:15)
– ”I’m just saying, in your lousy f******* Instagrams, you don’t have to have yourself with, walking with black people.” (7:45)
– “…Don’t put him [Magic] on an Instagram for the world to have to see so they have to call me.  And don’t bring him to my games.” (9:13)~snip~
I wonder if the liberal/progressive/commie media will now condemn all democrats as racists because this guy supported democrats?
Like I said....ain't holding my breath.

The Racist Myopia of the Left

I ran into this little gem over at the Daily Beast.

Republicans Are Racists? No, It’s Just All a Big Coincidence
Come on, fellow liberals. Calm down. I guess maybe it’s fair to call Cliven Bundy a racist. That “picking cotton” business put it over the top, and wondering whether they were better off under slavery. Even Sean Hannity, Bundy’s greatest media champion, threw in the towel last night: He wanted it to be “abundantly clear,” Hannity said at the top of his show, that he found the remarks “downright racist,” “repugnant,” “beyond disturbing,” and so on.~sni~
As you delve further into the article you'll find that the statute of limitations for repugnant actions and deeds seem to be about 60 years ago where the "author" of this piece begins to "apologize" for Robert Byrds membership in the KKK and then points out that he "recanted" 40 years ago and that Byrd is dead. I guess that means no harm or no foul right.
Surprisingly he does acknowledge the firm connection between the democrat party and the Klan but then he claims that that was "100 years ago" so obviously the democrat party can't be held accountable for their poor choice in association anymore. Now can they?

Apparently the purpose of this little piece of contrived tripe is to suggest that the parties have flipped sides over the years and that republicans are now the real bigots and racists so it's OK to white wash the entire episode of history.
Well the clown writers assertions are pretty much false. For one thing a lot of the statements being made nowadays by misguided conservatives are out of racial ignorance, not malice Also as sad and misguided as these statements are they don't rise to the actual actions of the Klan and the democrats. Some of which happened in the 1950's to the early 1960's.
Statements and missteps by republicans and conservatives nowadays in no way rise to the equivalence of the violence, burnings and lynchings during the klans hayday.
Nor do we see the actions we were witness to by Orval Faubus in 1957 or George Wallace in 1963, both democrats who actively opposed desegregation, by republicans or conservatives.
The democrats obsession with race persists today in the way they try and make everything about race in order to do what they have done for the last 100 years. To divide this country and hold power.
Missteps, misquotes and ignorance by conservatives and republicans are not equivalent to the overt and criminal acts committed by democrats for the last 100 years. First in the interest of "racial purity" and now in the interests of the democrat party.

So mock all you want libs because there are still people out here who know what you really are and we're not going to let you cleanse away the truth.

Here's Your Government Healthcare

You know the government could have just contracted to a private insurance company to take care of our veterans and they would be better off in most cases. Because the idea that they created a government agency to control costs is laughable. No government agency can control their costs.

'Pushed Aside Like an Animal': Vet Dies While Unable to Get Care Through VA
There are alarming new reports this week about how difficult it has become for veterans to receive medical care from VA hospitals. Reports indicated at least 40 veterans died while awaiting appointments at the Phoenix VA Medical Center, prompting calls for an investigation and Senate hearings from the state's two senators, John McCain and Jeff Flake.
A former doctor alleges that senior management kept a secret waiting list in order to conceal the fact that 1,400 to 1,600 sick veterans were forced to wait months to see a doctor. ~snip~
The examples of malfeasance, incompetence and bias of government civil "servants" have been plain to see for decades. Yet people still voted for a second term of Obama so he could begin to implement another government program that will punish the American people with ever rising taxes and declining accountability.

Plenty of Seating on Cliven Bundy's Bandwagon Now

Well the liberal/commie media finally got what they were waiting for, Cliven Bundy finally put his foot in his mouth and the gleeful liberals are running away with it.
/snip/“I want to tell you one more thing I know about the Negro,” he said. Mr. Bundy recalled driving past a public-housing project in North Las Vegas, “and in front of that government house the door was usually open and the older people and the kids — and there is always at least a half a dozen people sitting on the porch — they didn’t have nothing to do. They didn’t have nothing for their kids to do. They didn’t have nothing for their young girls to do.
“And because they were basically on government subsidy, so now what do they do?” he asked. “They abort their young children, they put their young men in jail, because they never learned how to pick cotton. And I’ve often wondered, are they better off as slaves, picking cotton and having a family life and doing things, or are they better off under government subsidy? They didn’t get no more freedom. They got less freedom.”/snip/
Frankly I'm not surprised I mean the liberal media has just been waiting for something like this to happen so they can slap down "conservative" pundits. As a matter of fact Bundy's chief cheerleader, Sean Hannity, has already thrown him under the bus.
I get the desire to want government to back off on the overreach, it seems that all our politicians want to do is tell us how to live our lives, what to buy,eat,drink what to weigh and take ever increasing amounts of our money to pay for it.
Hell if there was a line to slap Harry Reid I'd try to be among the first.
But going ballistic over Cliven Bundy's ranch is in my opinion a poor cause for conservatives to embrace mostly because, legally , he has no standing.

The bottom line is the public has again been victimised by the media whores on both sides of the aisle and when it blew up in conservatives faces the leftist media will use it to smear all conservatives in the eye of the public.
We did it to ourselves by believing that conservative media types actually believe more in conservatism than they do their ratings and paychecks.
The simple fact is that that isn't true. We have to learn to be a little more discriminating and learn more about the causes we are going to support in order to advance our agenda and not to be manipulated by media types on either the left or the right.
We need to demand more balanced information with the rhetoric so we can get the whole story.
Until then people will continue to get whipped up for those who covet ratings more than truth.

Disposing of Aborted Babies goes Green

These instances are the ones we're hearing about.
Does anyone honestly think that this activity doesn't happen anywhere there's a need to dispose of "medical waste"?

Canadian aborted babies incinerated in Oregon waste-to-energy facility to provide electricity
VICTORIA, British Columbia, April 23, 2014 ( – The British Columbia Health Ministry has admitted that the remains of babies destroyed by abortion in B.C. facilities are ending up in a waste-to-power facility in the United States, providing electricity for residents of Oregon.
The province’s Health Ministry said in an email to the B.C. Catholic that “biomedical waste” shipped to the U.S. to be incinerated includes “human tissue, such as surgically removed cancerous tissue, amputated limbs, and fetal tissue.”
“The ministry understands that some is transferred to Oregon. There it is incinerated in a waste-to-energy plant,” the email stated.
The ministry said that contractors handling the province’s “biomedical waste” follow “health and safety protocols, as well as federal, provincial, and local regulations.”~snip~
If we're going to have such a cavalier attitude about the disposal of human remains and body parts then how far away are we from shoving the whole remains of our loved ones into an incinerator for the purpose of generating electricity?

Poll on "Gay Marriage" Doesn't Show What We've Been Told

We've constantly been told through mostly the dinosaur liberal/commie media, that is in the back pocket of gay activists btw, that attitudes about homosexuas are changing.
Even though just about every time "gay marriage" has been put to a vote it fails miserably.

That's why the current trend for "gay activists" is to bypass the referendum process, shop around for a liberal judge, and do a run around of the voters.
So now the GOP has decided that it's an irrelevant issue that is costing them votes.
So you wonder what the RNC will make of this poll?

  GOP poll defies tide on gay marriage
Two conservative groups are pushing back on moves by the GOP to drop opposition to same-sex marriage from party platforms, releasing a poll of base voters taken last month that found in favor of defining marriage as “only” between a man and a woman.
The poll, commissioned by groups led by conservatives Gary Bauer and Tony Perkins, runs counter to a wide variety of opinion polls that show movement on the question of same-sex marriage, with more voters favoring it than opposing it.
Last week, the Nevada GOP removed opposition to same-sex marriage from its platform, with the state chairman saying the move was indicative of where the party is headed.
The survey by the GOP polling firm Wilson Research Strategies was of Republican and Republican-leaning independents and was taken over a month ago, sampling 801 people nationwide from March 18 through 20, with a 3.5 percent margin of error.
The survey showed 82 percent agreeing with a statement that marriage should be between “one man and one woman.” It also found that 75 percent disagreed that “politicians should support the redefinition of marriage to include same-sex couples.”~snip~
First off if there was a "tide" for "gay marriage" it would hardly need to be taken out of the hands of the voters and placed in the courts.
But another thing that should trouble the republican party is the wide margin of "Republican and Republican-leaning independents" who favor traditional marriage.
Now commie/leftist/liberals ridicule the poll because it focused on the groups "Republican and Republican-leaning independents" because being the self-centered, narcissistic boobs that they are, they believe their opinion matters. Even though they wouldn't vote for a republican to save their mothers life.
What should matter to the RNC is the opinion of voters who are most likely to vote for them. The best chance for that to happen is if they pay attention to the actual thoughts and opinions of their constituents as opposed to what the commie/liberal mainstream media tells them what we think.
Trying to move towards the democrat platform is what cost the RNC and Mitt Romney last time. Voters want to see a clear choice between returning to responsible governance and the politics of division that's been shoved down our throats.

Banning Scouting in California

There used to be a time when having "Boy Scout" on your resume' was considered a good thing. To belong to an organization that promoted the virtues of honesty and truth. 
But now it seems it's just another thing from your past that can haunt you.

Calif. moves to ban judges affiliated with Boy Scouts
California is proposing to ban members of the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) from serving as judges because the Boy Scouts do not allow gay troop leaders, The Daily Caller has learned.
In a move with major legal implications, The California Supreme Court Advisory Committee on The Code of Judicial Ethics has proposed to classify the Boy Scouts as practicing “invidious discrimination” against gays, which would end the group’s exemption to anti-discriminatory ethics rules and would prohibit judges from being affiliated with the group.
“The Committee’s invitation ignores the fact that the change also encompasses other youth organizations whose membership is limited on the basis of gender, e.g., the Girl Scouts, as well as the military, which continues to practice ‘discrimination’ on the basis of gender,” wrote Catherine Short, legal director of the pro-life group Life Legal Defense Foundation, in a letter to the Committee obtained by TheDC that predicts possible implications for pro-life judges in the future.
“Perhaps this is not an unintended consequence,” wrote Short.~snip~
 I think what we're seeing is a template for the future when the groups and organizations that our parents and grandparents belonged to and benefited from will be "purged" from society.
The leftist communists are not content to simply marginalize groups that foment hate and bigotry (groups that originated from the democrat party itself, the KKK just changed it's name to the DNC.) they now want to go after those whose thoughts and beliefs are contrary to theirs. Like the article states , there may eventually(likely) be  a move to purge people with pro-life leanings who ever spoke out in the past about high taxes or government overreach. There are probably issues the commie/leftists haven't even gotten around to yet that people will lose their job over.
Like calling someone "bossy".
It's kind of alarming that people in the future will have to be anxious about what in their past can be used against them.
Whoever thought that repeating the Scout Oath or the Scout Law could cause you to be banned from being a judge?

A look into the near future.

Liberals Announce Plan to 'Purge' Christians
~snip~But as you read the article a frightening reality quickly rises to the surface. It's neither funny nor untrue. None of it. The cultural Marxist American left is 100-percent serious about "purging" Christians from society.
They're as serious as Josef Stalin's heart attack.~snip~

Liberal Idiot

I'm not sure this needs a whole of comment but Chris Hayes is definitely out of his element here. He really should have stayed home.

SPLC Continues Conning the Public

There's this weird idea out there that the Southern Poverty Law Center actually cares about civil rights and "hate" in America. 
Truth is that they're simply a money generating machine that uses slander and leftist sensibilities to scare people into donating.
Their list of "anti-government groups or militias" is pretty laughable.

Record number of anti-government militias in USA
Radical anti-government "patriot" groups and militias, galvanized against gun control, will continue to grow even as the number of groups operating in the USA reached an all-time high in 2012, a report Tuesday by the Southern Poverty Law Center finds.
The center tracked 1,360 radical militias and anti-government groups in 2012, an eightfold increase over 2008, when it recorded 149 such groups. The explosive growth began four years ago, sparked by the election of President Obama and anger about the poor economy, the center says. That growth is likely to continue as the groups recruit more members with a pro-gun message, the center's senior fellow Mark Potok said.~snip~
They've in essence reduced anyone who believes in the second amendment or limited government as a "radical".  Believing in certain amendments of the constitution  like say the first, the fourth or the fifth is OK but believing in the second makes you an anti-government loon.
I'm not anti-government, I'm anti-over reaching government. Being a "Patriot" is not a dirty word and when the hell are Americans going to push back against media organizations who use the SPLC as a source for anything.
The SPLC is nothing but a self serving group of leftist goons and the liberal media are basically acting as their fund raising organization.
We need to stop buying into it.

Vaccines, Victims of their own Success

There's been a lot of noise recently about vaccines for children and celebrities who advocate skipping them for various reasons.  Along with Jenny McCarthy, Alicia Silverstone has jumped on the crazy train of vaccine deniers.

Miso soup to prevent measles? Why Alicia Silverstone is feeding her two-year-old son a plant-based diet instead of getting him vaccinated

There's really not much to quote there because what she believes is basically ditzy crap.
Although this attitude doesn't surprise me mainly because vaccines have been so successful.
When I was growing up I met kids my own age who were victims of polio who had wasted limbs, for the rest of their lives. They couldn't participate in sports or run away from girls or after boys, they got to wear braces on their legs and a few related tales about older or younger siblings who lost their lives to polio.
I also met adults with terrible scars on their faces from smallpox with similar stories about relatives they had lost to smallpox.
You don't see those things much anymore, mostly because of vaccinations smallpox has been eradicated in the world and polio is not far behind. So far anyway.
I've also had mumps,chickenpox and measles. Conditions I wouldn't wish on anyone because they are miserable diseases and can be fatal as well.

Because of vaccines mumps,chickenpox and measles are not common. There are no more "contagious parties" where parents would take their kids to expose them to "get it over with" because for the most part it was one and done.
Because of vaccines people don't have to be exposed to the misery and suffering that these diseases cause.
That's why these celebutards can get away with spewing this stuff. If they were exposed to family and friends who suffered or where lost due to these diseases then I seriously doubt they would be giving bad advice on how to protect your children.

Obama Dances Around Biden Endorsment
Some how I don't get the feeling that the Obamessiah and Joe are besties.
When the time comes I'm betting Obama's endorsement will go to Hillary as payback for her losing the nomination to him in the first place.
On the other hand Obama probably doesn't feel like wasting his endorsement.

Government Confiscation of S.S. Overpayments Halted "for review"

So last week a story hits about the government seizing taxpayers refunds to satisfy old Social Security payments Payments that were made decades ago.
It seems that there was a line inserted into the farm bill removing the 10 year statute of limitations on debts to the government(as taxpayers we have a whole lot less than 10 years to apply for moneys owed us by the government).
About 400,000 people are on the hook for these old debts, but the good news is that since it's come to light and because of some backlash prompting some politicians to walk back from their previous support for the bill, the Social Security administration has decided to halt the collections pending a "review".

 Social Security halts effort to collect old debts
WASHINGTON (AP) -- The Social Security Administration is suspending a program in which thousands of people were having their tax refunds seized to recoup overpayments that happened more than a decade ago.
Acting Social Security Commissioner Carolyn W. Colvin said Monday she has directed an immediate halt to the program while the agency does a review.
Social Security recipients and members of Congress complained that people were being forced to repay overpayments that were sometimes paid to their parents or guardians when they were children.
"While this policy of seizing tax refunds to repay decades-old Social Security overpayments might be allowed under the law, it is entirely unjust," Democratic Sens. Senators Barbara Boxer of California and Barbara Mikulski of Maryland said in a letter to Colvin.
After Colvin's announcement, Boxer said in a statement: "I am grateful that the Social Security Administration has chosen not to penalize innocent Americans while the agency determines a fair path forward on how to handle past errors."
The Social Security Administration says it has identified about 400,000 people with old debts. They owe a total of $714 million.~snip~
A "review" doesn't necessarily mean they are going to suspend the program nor is Barbara Boxer or Barbara Mikulski seem to be inclined to call for reinstatement of the 10 year statute of limitations. What is apparently happening is that the government agencies involved are looking for a cooling off period so they can go ahead and move forward with the program with a little less attention.
One thing that seems to be missing is a review as to why the incompetent civil servants managed to overpay to the tune of $714 million. As always it's never the bureaucrats fault and they'll never be held accountable.

Rotating Hacks

One thing you can be sure of and that is no matter who the public official is that "resigns" there will certainly be a partisan hack behind them ready to go to new heights of incompetence.

On Thursday, Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius resigned her position. The New York Times reported the resignation as a punishment for failure:
Officials said Ms. Sebelius, 65, made the decision to resign and was not forced out. But the frustration at the White House over her performance had become increasingly clear, as administration aides worried that the crippling problems at, the website set up to enroll Americans in insurance exchanges, would result in lasting damage to the president’s legacy.
So Sebelius stuck around just long enough to reach the mythical 7 million enrollment number so Obama didn’t have a major public relations fiasco on his hands. Then she was forced out – although, in a final touch of somewhat charming bewilderment, she announced to the press that she had no clue just how many Americans who signed up for Obamacare were previously uninsured. Competent to the very last drop.
This, of course, provided a vicious coup de grace to Sebelius’ waning reputation. In order to prevent the fallout from wounding The One, Obama acolytes rushed to Sebelius’ defense, hoping to rehabilitate both her and Obamacare by proxy.~snip~
Forcing Sebelius out does nothing to change the fact that many Americans were hurt badly by her clumsy implementation of Obamacare. The only thing that will change is the name of the one in charge of the clusterf*ck known as Obamacare.

Also in case anyone is still buying the BS about Obamacare victims not being real.


Sins of the Fathers

Here's something we all should have expected. The governments extreme overreach into the distant past to be able to confiscate even more of our money. What's even more chilling about this is that they don't even need specifics about what is owed from decades ago.

 Social Security, Treasury target taxpayers for their parents’ decades-old debts
A few weeks ago, with no notice, the U.S. government intercepted Mary Grice’s tax refunds from both the IRS and the state of Maryland. Grice had no idea that Uncle Sam had seized her money until some days later, when she got a letter saying that her refund had gone to satisfy an old debt to the government — a very old debt.
When Grice was 4, back in 1960, her father died, leaving her mother with five children to raise. Until the kids turned 18, Sadie Grice got survivor benefits from Social Security to help feed and clothe them.
Now, Social Security claims it overpaid someone in the Grice family — it’s not sure who — in 1977. After 37 years of silence, four years after Sadie Grice died, the government is coming after her daughter. Why the feds chose to take Mary’s money, rather than her surviving siblings’, is a mystery.
Across the nation, hundreds of thousands of taxpayers who are expecting refunds this month are instead getting letters like the one Grice got, informing them that because of a debt they never knew about — often a debt incurred by their parents — the government has confiscated their check.
The Treasury Department has intercepted $1.9 billion in tax refunds already this year — $75 million of that on debts delinquent for more than 10 years, said Jeffrey Schramek, assistant commissioner of the department’s debt management service. The aggressive effort to collect old debts started three years ago — the result of a single sentence tucked into the farm bill lifting the 10-year statute of limitations on old debts to Uncle Sam.~snip~
Notice how the sentence was pretty much just snuck into the bill with the government feeling no obligation to inform anyone about it's backhanded plan to seize our assets under almost any circumstances.
It's a pretty sad situation to realize that the government who is supposed to work for us schemes behind our backs.

The Lefts Intolerance

Commie/liberal/leftists will do whatever it takes it shut down dissent. Unfortunately with the mainstream liberal media in their pocket they can manage to get way more attention then they deserve.
Charles Krauthammer takes them to task for trying to control not only speech but our thoughts as well.

Thought police on patrol

Lots of good points in this article but the one thing that needs saying. We, as in the public, allow the lickspittle media to get away with creating mountains out of molehills.
The shrill shouting of the liberal/leftist/commies will only stop when we start ignoring the bleating of the lapdog media.

Nope...Still Won't Watch

Yeah...still not much of an incentive to watch "the Late Show". I gave up on Letterman over a decade ago. Colbert ain't much of an improvement.

The CBS Television Network today announced that Stephen Colbert, the host, writer and executive producer of the Emmy and Peabody Award-winning “The Colbert Report,” will succeed David Letterman as the host of THE LATE SHOW, effective when Mr. Letterman retires from the broadcast. The five-year agreement between CBS and Colbert was announced by Leslie Moonves, President and CEO, CBS Corporation, and Nina Tassler, Chairman of CBS Entertainment.
     Letterman, the legendary, critically acclaimed host of the CBS late night series for 21 years, announced his retirement on his April 3 broadcast. Colbert’s premiere date as host of THE LATE SHOW will be announced after Mr. Letterman determines a timetable for his final broadcasts in 2015.
     Specific creative elements, as well as the producers and the location for the Colbert-hosted LATE SHOW, will be determined and announced at a later date.
     “Stephen Colbert is one of the most inventive and respected forces on television,” said Moonves. “David Letterman’s legacy and accomplishments are an incredible source of pride for all of us here, and today’s announcement speaks to our commitment of upholding what he established for CBS in late night.”~snip~

Megan Kelly Slaps CAIR Spokesman

I saw this last night and I'm glad there is a clip to post. For the most part this is pretty typical of CAIR, trying to shout down anything it disagrees with. Which is why there can't be any real "conversation" because dialog is instantly denounced as "hate" or "bigotry".

The Corrupt Medias Echo Chamber

I'm sure everyone's seen the news about Brandeis and Ayaan Hirsi Ali.
Basically it's another cowardly capitulation to a vocal sub minority raising a stink because they can.
CAIR is probably one of the most subversive organizations in this country who pretty much is opposed to any information about Islam, radical or not although the lines are pretty blurred, getting out to the masses unless they approve of it.
But you got to ask yourself why do they have this kind of power over the free dissemination of information?

The reason is simple, they have he ear of the corrupt liberal/commie mainstream media.
I mean really, who else but a red diaper wearing liberal reporter would wet their pants over what a bunch of terrorist apologists think about any issue?
This is something that has been going on since Obama and his minions entered office, for some reason the liberal pantywaists in the mainstream media have been emboldened to the point that they amplify these sub minorities grievances to a point that low information voters believe there is some kind of consensus of unfairness.
They've hit every group they can think of, gays, Muslims, women, minorities. Any group that they believe will divide Americans and give democrats the opportunity to ride in and save them.
They're trying to create pockets of dependency for the commie/liberals to exploit.
And to many Americans are falling for it.

Global Warming and Baked Beans

Flatulence.... the bane of the planet.
Of all the multitudes of
ginned up fear based results of "climate change" they pale in comparison to the solutions.

People should eat fewer baked beans as the flatulence they produce contributes to global warming, a minister has suggested.
A Labour peer raised the issue during questions in the House of Lords earlier today, saying that Britons eat more baked beans than any other country and raising concerns over "smelly emissions".
Climate change minister Baroness Verma responded by urging the public to 'moderate' their behaviour on this 'important' issue.
Labour's Viscount Simon asked: "In a programme some months ago on the BBC, it was stated that this country has the largest production and consumption of baked beans in the world.
"Can the noble Baroness say whether this affects the calculation of global warming by the Government as a result of the smelly emission resulting therefrom?"
Baroness Verma described the Viscount's question as "so different", but said that he raised "an important point" and appeared to suggest that people should moderate their consumption of the product.
Baked beans are especially popular in the UK and Ireland, where they are a staple part of the traditional full English breakfast. In Britain, they are commonly made by stewing beans in a tomato and sugar sauce, and are notorious for their ability to induce flatulence.~snip~
I know there are a lot of people out there who don't want to hear this but in the 60 years I've been alive weather has continuously changed. Some years were cooler and some were warmer. As a matter of fact I remember a time when books were published warning everyone of a new ice age.
For some reason that never caught, on inducing panic among the masses that we would all freeze to death if we didn't warm up the planet.
Of course a little flatulence in sub-zero temperatures would be a welcome moment of warmth. Baked beans would be all the rage then.

Well just in case some people out there ain't puckering their anus tight enough to avoid the cataclysm of baked bean induced global warming here's a partial list of things caused partly by smelly emissions.

Read and panic at your own leisure.

Pulling the IRS's Strings

I worked in the civil service for about 2 years in the late 70's and even then it was a den of elitist liberalism. They all swore fealty to Jimmy Carter so you know they were a bunch of clueless, blind followers then.
This kind of revelation doesn't surprise me at all.

Darrell Issa: Emails suggest Elijah Cummings prompted IRS targeting of True the Vote
House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., has accused the panel's top Democrat of prompting the Internal Revenue Service in 2012 to target a conservative organization applying for nonprofit status.
Issa said records obtained last week from the IRS show communications from the office of ranking member Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., about True the Vote, a Texas-based, nonprofit conservative group that aims to prevent voter fraud.
The communications at one point involved Lois Lerner, the ex-IRS official who Issa's panel is poised to hold in contempt of Congress on Thursday for refusing to provide testimony about her involvement in targeting conservative groups.
“The IRS and the Oversight Minority made numerous requests for virtually identical information from True the Vote, raising concerns that the IRS improperly shared protected taxpayer information with Rep. Cummings’ staff,” a statement from the Oversight panel reads.
According to Issa, Cummings and his staff sought “copies of all training materials used for volunteers, affiliates, or other entities,” from True the Vote.
Five days after the Cummings inquiry, the IRS sent True the Vote an email requesting “a copy of [True the Vote’s] volunteer registration form,” “… the process you use to assign volunteers,” “how you keep your volunteers in teams,” and “how your volunteers are deployed … following the training they receive by you.”~snip~
Liberal commies have been corrupting government for decades, we can vote out politicians but the entrenched commie/liberal civil servants that infest government jobs are pretty much untouchable.
They lie in wait either to subvert leadership that doesn't conform to their ideological views or to await instructions from their leftist overlords.
The best thing that could happen is if congress does a clean sweep of all government agencies.

I would bet real money that this kind of thing goes on in just about every government office.

IRS under fire: Vote for Obama stickers, campaign cheerleading commonplace
Even as the IRS faces growing heat over Lois G. Lerner and the tea party targeting scandal, a government watchdog said Wednesday it’s pursuing cases against three other tax agency employees and offices suspected of illegal political activity in support of President Obama and fellow Democrats.~snip~

Why we can't have nice things

Ugh, you know the thing is people expect this kind of behaviour from leftist/commie/liberals because everyone knows they're degenerate perverts and proud of it.
I can't think of any democrat who ran on family values or promises of upholding morality. I mean after all, they don't promise that there is anything decent about themselves at all.
That's why idiots like this give us a black eye...because leftist/commie/liberals just can't wait to pull out the hypocrisy card.

News-Star exclusive: McAllister says he's 'ashamed,' asking for forgiveness
Freshman 5th District U.S. Rep Vance McAllister, R-Swartz, said Monday night he doesn’t intend to resign despite the release of a video showing him kissing a woman who isn’t his wife.
McAllister, in an exclusive interview with The News-Star, said he has asked his wife Kelly and their five children for forgiveness and plans to stand for re-election next fall.
“I have fallen short as a husband and a father, and I feel more ashamed than you can imagine,” said McAllister, R-Swartz. “I’ve asked them for forgiveness, and I’m asking forgiveness from my constituents who elected me to serve them.”~snip~
If the guy had any real decency he'd step down and save conservatives the embarrassment of having him thrown in our faces. Course decency is a ship that's already sailed.
We don't need any more smooth talkers in politics, what we need are leaders who will walk the talk.

The Confiscation Continues

Just a little reminder that government is not our friend.

‘Tax Freedom Day’ falls three days later this year
The day when the nation collectively has made enough money to pay its total tax burden for the year is three days later this year, according to a new report.
According to a report released Monday by the Tax Foundation, this year Tax Freedom Day falls 111 days into 2014, on April 21.
By April 21, to group says, Americans will have made enough to pay the $3 trillion in federal taxes and $1.5 trillion in state taxes — more than they will spend on food clothing and housing combined.
Tax Freedom Day is later than it was last year, due in large part to the slow economic recovery, the tax policy research group argues.
“Tax Freedom Day is three days later than last year due mainly to the country’s continued slow economic recovery, which is expected to boost tax revenue especially from the corporate, payroll, and individual income tax,” authors Kyle Pomerleau and Lyman Stone write.~snip~
The liberal/democrats continue to cause the economy to go down in flames and yet continue to confiscate our hard earned money in taxes without a pause.

Support for WinXP ends

Tomorrow will be the end of support for Window XP, where Microsoft forces you to basically upgrade to it's newest OS.
Here's a link for more information, what to expect and what your alternatives are.

Tech Tips: A guide to upgrading, using XP computer
NEW YORK — Microsoft retires its 12-year-old Windows XP operating system on Tuesday. Even so, there are still millions of XP computers out there. Here’s what to do if you own one of them:
What happens Tuesday?~snip~
I've got another machine with Win7 installed so I'll be moving to that one tomorrow but I suppose sometime this year I'll buy a new computer with Windows 8 . I've read some good and bad reviews on Windows 8 but I'm sure it'll just be a matter of getting used to something a little different.
I'm not really sure what I'll do with my current XP computer, maybe I'll install Linux on it but truth is I'm not really excited about going that way so I suppose it'll really end up in the back of a closet somewhere gathering dust.

Mickey Rooney Gone at 93

As trite as it sounds this is something that I thought might not happen for another decade or so.

Mickey Rooney, Legendary Actor, Dies at 93
Mickey Rooney, the pint-sized actor who was one of MGM’s giant box office attractions in the late ’30s and early ’40s, has died, sources confirm. He was 93.
As adept at comedy as drama and an excellent singer and dancer, Rooney was regarded as the consummate entertainer. During a prolific career on stage and screen that spanned eight decades (“I’ve been working all my life, but it seems longer,” he once said), he was nominated for four Academy Awards and received two special Oscars, the Juvenile Award in 1939 (shared with Deanna Durbin) and one in 1983 for his body of work.
He also appeared on series and TV and in made for television movies, one of which, “Bill,” the touching story of a mentally challenged man, won him an Emmy. He was Emmy nominated three other times. And for “Sugar Babies,” a musical revue in which he starred with Ann Miller, he was nominated for a Tony in 1980.
Both in his professional and personal life Rooney withstood many peaks and valleys. He was married eight times and filed for bankruptcy in 1962, having gone through the $12 million he had earned. And until middle age, he was never able to quite cast off his popularity as a juvenile. Nonetheless, Rooney’s highs more than compensated for his lows. Via his “Andy Hardy” series of films, the five-foot-three Rooney came to embody the virtues of small-town American boyhood. Those films and a series of musicals in which he co-starred with Judy Garland made him the nation’s biggest box office attraction for three years running.~snip!
I can't even begin to think of all the times I've seen him in movies and on TV, the guy was a talent and lived a long and interesting life.
If only we are all so lucky.

Krauthammer on totalitarian discourse

This has become a consistent tactic of the radical left on many issues. Attempting to shut down debate by declaring that an issue is "settled" From abortion and Obamacare (it's the law of the land) to global warming ("settled science") to pretty much any issue of the week that they want to screech about.
The question becomes will we, as a society, allow the radical leftist/communists to control the discourse or push back against the thug tactics being used against us?

Dissent Will not be Tolerated

What's interesting about this to me is just how far back will the mob go to demonize their opponents? This brouhaha was over a donation made in 2008. Paula Deen was excoriated for something she said over 20 years ago.
What commonly held opinions and attitudes that are held now will become fodder 10 to 20 years from now that will be used to ruin the lives of our children or grandchildren?
No matter how you feel about the issue of same sex marriage the kind of tactics used by the brown shirts of the pink mafia enabled by a lick-spittle ravenous media needs to suffer a backlash.

Why Pick Hillary?

Basically her reasons are,"I got nothing".

Hillary struggles to list accomplishments during tenure as Secretary of State

“When you look at your time as Secretary of State, what are you most proud of? And what do you feel was unfinished, and maybe have another crack at one day?” the moderator asks.
“Well, I really see — that was good — that’s why he wins prizes. Look, I really see my role as Secretary, in fact leadership in general in a democracy, as a relay race. When you run the best race you can run, you hand off the baton. Some of what hasn’t been finished may go on to be finished, so when President Obama asked me to be Secretary of State I agreed,” Clinton responded.~snip~
Of course Obama won 2 terms without any qualifications or experience other than community organizing so it's no stretch for Hillary to think she's qualified, After all she was married to Bubba. Just ask Monica.

Hey! Lets get em all!!

Ran across this article today.

Purge the Bigots
~snip~Some of my colleagues are celebrating. They call Eich a bigot who got what he deserved. I agree. But let’s not stop here. If we’re serious about enforcing the new standard, thousands of other employees who donated to the same anti-gay ballot measure must be punished.
More than 35,000 people gave money to the campaign for Proposition 8, the 2008 ballot measure that declared, “Only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in California.” You can download the entire list, via the Los Angeles Times, as a compressed spreadsheet. (Click the link that says, “Download CSV.”) Each row lists the donor’s employer. If you organize the data by company, you can add up the total number of donors and dollars that came from people associated with that company.~snip~
While the article does come off as a satire piece pointing out the absurdity of selective outrage it's also a warning of sorts.
Because the information about who donated is in the public domain, and the commie/liberal media is more than happy to compile a nice list, of anyone who donated for or against prop 8, easily sorted by name and location.
Which means they are all vulnerable to the same harassment and/or "purging" as Brandon Eich. Not only that but it's a warning to anyone who considers supporting the opposition to think more than twice before acting on it..
Mob politics.

What a $1000 Can Get You

*I've been away for this month due to some personal reasons and then some technical ones. However with the midterms looming I fully intend to get back into the swing of things.
I've also taken some time to reflect on what this blog should be and represent and not just a magnet for spammers trying to fill the comments.*
With a little help from the IRS it can get you shown the door.

Mozilla CEO “resigns” after uproar over his opposition to gay marriage
His opposition consisted of a $1,000 donation to support Proposition 8 in California made years ago. ~snip~
The difference between Eich and Obama is that. as far as we know, Eich didn’t lie to people’s faces about his views to further his own ambition. He could have publicly renounced his donation this week in the name of keeping his job, but apart from a statement about making sure that Mozilla supports everyone regardless of orientation, he didn’t. I imagine there must be some satisfaction to him in that. The ultimate goal in boycotts like these isn’t getting people fired, it’s enforcing uniformity of thought on the subject. When forced to choose, Eich evidently preferred to sacrifice his job rather than his beliefs.~snip~
The pink mafia has been in search of a pound of flesh since their attempt to strong arm Chick-fil-a back fired on them showing that Americans are more interested in the free expression of an individual than the whiny rantings of a intolerant minority. Leave it to the tech types to fold like a cheap suit.....sissies.

Keep in mind that the IRS is going to be in charge of enforcing Obamacare and as such will have access to just about everything about you that they will be more than happy to "leak" to their chosen organizations for "social justice".
