The Dumbest Thing I've Ever Heard - “Imagine if somebody were to really sit down with Osama Bin Laden and say, ‘listen man,what is it that you’re so angry at me about that you’re willing to have people strap bombs to themselves, or get inside of airplanes and fly them into buildings.’ That would be the miracle if we can get, sit down and talk to our enemies and find a way for them to hear us.” – Hollywood actor Matthew Modine
Alrighty then. Even though Modine is a big-time Hollywood movie star who has made such great films as...um, let's see...well, I can't think of one right now....he's an airhead. Here's an idea. Let's airdrop the airhead actor into Waziristan and have him serve as the ambassador of peace and love in dialogues with Osama Bin Laden. The later video that would surface of Modine's beheading would serve as a learning lesson to all like-minded naive liberal douchebags.
Note to Modine - it is well-documented why Bin Laden hates us. Maybe you'd know why if you didn't have your head stuck so far up your own blowhole. Btw, Matty, one of the reasons Bin Laden hates us is because of our culture, as portrayed in HOLLYWOOD MOVIES. Bin Laden would love to have YOUR head on a stick.
Dumbest Statement Of The Week - This comes from our Treasury Secretary, Tim 'TurboTax' Geithner. From Fox News:
Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner said Thursday it's "deeply unfair" that some financial institutions that got taxpayer-paid bailouts are emerging in better shape from the recession than millions of ordinary Americans. He acknowledged public outrage over that and said people watched with disdain as Washington protected high-risk banks and investment houses, even as the national unemployment rate was soaring to double-digit levels for the first time in a generation. But in a nationally broadcast interview, Geithner also argued that President Obama had no choice when confronted with a financial crisis. "As the president has said, we had to do some very unpopular things," Geithner said. "People looked at what had happened."
"It's not fair. It's deeply unfair," he said. "He (Obama) had to decide whether he was going to act to fix it or stand back ... and that would have been calamitous for the American economy."
As great as it is to have TurboTax Tim pedaling disinformation for Obama, I'd be remiss not to point out that the TARP program, which bailed out those financial institutions, came from President Bush, not President Obama. Obama's contribution to the recovery was the stimulus package. Geithner didn't mention that in his statement, but he did say the following:
The secretary agreed that the national jobless rate -- now at 9.7 percent -- is " still terribly high and is going to stay unacceptably high for a very long time" because of the damage caused by the recession.
Um, if unemployment is going to stay unacceptably high for a very long time, doesn't that mean Obama's contribution, the $876 billion stimulus package, didn't work ?
Liberals vs. Conservatives - This is from an e-mail I received from a friend, original source unknown. It seems worth repeating now:
If a conservative doesn't like guns, he doesn't buy one.
If a liberal doesn't like guns, he wants all guns outlawed.
If a conservative is a vegetarian, he doesn't eat meat.
If a liberal is a vegetarian, he wants all meat products banned.
If a conservative is down-and-out, he thinks about how to better his situation.
If a liberal is down-and-out, he demands that somebody else take care of him.
If a conservative doesn't like a talk show host, he switches channels.
If a liberal doesn't like a talk show host, he demands that the talk show host be removed from the air.
If a conservative doesn't believe in God, he doesn't go to church.
If a liberal doesn't believe in God, he demands that all mentions of God be removed from the public arena.
If a conservative decides he needs health insurance, he goes shopping
for it, or figures out what he needs to do to afford it.
If a liberal decides he needs health insurance, he demands that someone else provide it for him at their expense.
If a conservative reads this, he'll forward it to his friends so they can have a good laugh.
If a liberal reads this, he will delete it because he's offended.
It's no surprise that liberals want to be called progressives these days. There's not much about them that evokes the root meaning of the word "liberal," which is "liberty," aka, "freedom." Liberals are all about coercion. "Progressive" coercion, of course. They know they can't do it all at once, or America would rise up against them. Instead, they take incremental progressive steps towards totalitarianism, or as Soviet premier Nikita Kruschev once put it, "Oh you Americans! You're so gullible! We'll spoon feed you socialism until you're Communists and don't even know it." That's the endgame of progressivism. When we are all dependent on the government for our survival, they have won. Checkmate. Freedom gone. Friedrich Hayek called it The Road To Serfdom.
