Olby Out: Al Gore's Current TV has canned it's lead purveyor of left-wing hate speech, Keith Olbermann. Awww. I'll sure miss Olby, even though I haven't watched him since he was on that other left-wing hate speech station, MSNBC (quick MSNBC hate speech example - last night Chris Matthews' show was calling Florida's Stand Your Ground law the "Kill At Will" law, which of course it is not. I don't know how anyone watches that crap). Olby will be replaced by the disgraced former Governor of New York, Eliot Spitzer. You really can't make this stuff up. I assume Malik Zulu Shabazz wasn't available.
Escalate: Speaking of MSNBC, former Democratic presidential candidate, riot inciter, race baiter, framer of innocent people, MSNBC talk show host, and lynch mob leader, Al Sharpton, has called for an escalation of civil disobedience if George Zimmerman isn't arrested for the shooting of Trayvon Martin. Sharpton said he will take things to the next "level", all peacefully, of course. Maybe someone should inform Sharpton that the shooting is under investigation at both the state and FBI level, and if the facts warrant it, Zimmerman WILL be arrested. The last time I checked, Al Sharpton was not the American justice system.To read more or comment...
On wednesday, the House of Representative voted on three budget plans. Here are the results:
- A budget based on President Obama's 2013 budget plan was defeated by a unanimous vote of 414-0. Not even one Democrat voted for it. This is a similar outcome to the last Obama budget Congress voted on, over in the Senate in 2011. That one was defeated by a unanimous vote of 97-0. Again, not one Democrat voted with the President. Who says this President can't unite the country ?To read more or comment...
Because the Obama administration couldn't get Cap And Trade passed through a resistant Congress, it has turned to another legislative branch of the federal government (though we thought there was only supposed to be one), which is known as the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The EPA is a curious federal entity. It can make it's own rules, and those rules don't have to be approved by the constitutionally authorized legislative branch. That makes the EPA sort of an Americanized version of the old Soviet Politburo. The consent of the governed is not required.
Here's the latest unilateral action taken by the EPA:To read more or comment...
In the following video, Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia knocks down the federal government's alleged Commerce Clause case precedents for the ObamaCare individual mandate (and makes the point of my previous post). Scalia also gives the government solicitor a lesson on enumerated powers and the Tenth Amendment. This is music to my ears.To read more or comment...
The Supreme Court is hearing a case about the ObamaCare mandate this week. Under the mandate, all citizens of the United States will be forced to either purchase government-approved health insurance from private providers or pay a fine. The case is an appeal of an Eleventh Circuit Court decision which held the ObamaCare individual mandate to be unconstitutional under both the Commerce Clause and the Taxing And Spending Clause of the Constitution. That ruling stated the following:To read more or comment...
Correction: Before I get into today's subject matter, I want to issue a correction regarding a source I used in a post about voting fraud. In a January 23rd post titled, 'Monday Madness', I cited the South Carolina Attorney General's letter to the U.S. Justice Dept., which stated that 953 dead people voted in a South Carolina election. I used that source to say liberals were lying about occurrences of voting fraud. Liberals have been contending recently that there are very few instances of voting fraud (contrary to what liberals contended in the aftermath of the 2000 and 2004 elections). After a partial investigation of the matter, it turns out the S.C. Attorney General's voting fraud fears may be unfounded:To read more or comment...
On television last night, I saw both Rick Santorum (R-PA) and Newt Gingrich (R-GA) waving Etch-A-Sketches around onstage, saying Mitt Romney (R-MA) would erase his primary campaign and move left for the general election. This was meant to imply Romney is a flip-flopping politician with no conservative principles, and came after Romney adviser Eric Fehrnstrom went on CNN and compared the general election to an Etch A Sketch, saying Romney can "shake it up" and "start all over again" in the fall.
Such is politics, I suppose, but this prompts me to share a few thoughts about the GOP primary race.To read more or comment...
Normally, I would rather get a root canal than post a clip from Bill Maher's show, but I'm going to make an exception here. The following videos were made by filmmaker Alexandra Pelosi (Nancy Pelosi's daughter). The first part of the video shows some stereotypical rednecks from the deep South being...stereotypical rednecks from the deep South (Stereotype Right). The second part of the video shows stereotypical welfare seekers looking for handouts being...stereotypical welfare seekers looking for handouts (Stereotype Left). Unfortunately, Bill Maher also appears in the video. Sorry about that. I would have edited out his dumb comments if I could have, but I couldn't.To read more or comment...
Happy St. Patrick's Day, everyone !
Time for some Irish jokes. Because I'm a good Catholic boy, and 1/4th Irish, these jokes will be clean.
An Irishman was walking through a graveyard, when he saw a headstone with the inscription, 'Here Lies A Politician And An Honest Man'.
"Faith and Begorrah", exclaimed the Irishman. "I wonder how they fit the two of them in the same coffin ?".
"Seamus, why don't you give up the drinking, smoking and carousing?' asked Mrs O'Leary.
'It's too late,' replied Seamus.
'It's never too late,' assured the virtuous Mrs O'Leary.
'Well, there's no rush then,' smiled Seamus.
Two Irishmen, Pat and Murphy, saw a sign saying "Tree fellers wanted".
Murphy said to Pat, 'If only Seamus had been with us, we'd have got that job.' [wait for it...]
David and Peter, two English men, are walking along O'Connell Street in Dublin, when they see a sign in a shop window: Suits £15.00, shirts £2.00, trousers £2.50.
Peter says to Dave, 'Look at that - we could buy a lot of that gear and, when we get back to England we could make a fortune. When we go into the shop don't say anything, let me do all the talking, because if they hear our accent they might not serve us, so I'll speak in my best Irish accent.'
They go in, and Peter orders 50 suits at £15.00, 100 shirts at £2.00, and 50 trousers at £2.50.
The owner of the shop says, 'You're English, aren't you?'
Peter replies 'Oh bother... Yes, how on earth did you know that?'
The owner says, 'Because this is a dry cleaners...'
This next bit of humor came from Kimberly Driscoll, the mayor of Salem, Massachusetts:

From the Obama administration's sexist belief that women aren't capable of being responsible for their own sex lives (birth control), to the Obama administration's racist belief that minorities are too dumb to obtain id's (even when those id's are free), you'd think three-fourths of the country would be pissed off at the Obama administration by now.
Then when you add in the Obama administration's belief that adults are too stupid to figure out what constitutes healthy food, and are unable to feed their children properly, almost everyone should be offended.To read more or comment...
In general, if you ask Republicans, they say the government spends too much. If you ask Democrats, they say the government taxes too little. Conservatives talk about cutting spending. Liberals talk about raising taxes. There are, of course, variations to this generalization, but I'm not going to get into that today. I want to focus on the bigger picture.
Who is correct in this debate ? Let's look at some numbers.To read more or comment...
My liberal blogger friend, the Reverend, speaking about Rush Limbaugh's nasty name-calling directed toward Georgetown law student Sandra Fluke, claimed there was no equivalent misogynistic behavior coming from the political left. Because that was one of the more unbelievable statements I've heard in my life, I decided to write a post showing the Reverend exactly how wrong he was.
Luckily for me, liberal columnist and Fox News contributor Kirsten Powers did my research for me, with an article called 'Rush Limbaugh Isn't The Only Media Misogynist'. Ms. Powers save me a lot of time and effort, so I'll just print her entire column here. She nailed it:To read more or comment...
When Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) put forth his budget plan in 2011, it included a provision to make Medicare sustainable into the future, but Democrats dishonestly pretended Ryan was setting out to destroy Medicare rather than save it. You may remember the Democrat ad that showed Ryan pushing a wheelchaired grandmother over a cliff. The Democrats were so dishonest about Ryan's proposal that Factcheck.Org deemed the Democrat lie one of the worst politiical deceptions of 2011 in it's Whopper's Of 2011 list.
To those dedicated to the truth rather than deception, it is obvious the only thing that will ultimately destroy Medicare is to leave it unsustainable, as it is now. The unfunded Medicare liability stands at over $81.755 TRILLION dollars. We don't have to come up with all that dough immediately, of course, but we do need to start addressing the problem sooner rather than later, or we'll be in a world of hurt. As things stand now, the Medicare Hospital Insurance Trust Fund will become insolvent in 2024.To read more or comment...
I don't understand why people support President Obama, unless it's out of some sense of misguided tribal loyalty. By any objective measure, Obama has done a terrible job as President, but for some reason, liberals and Democrats want to re-elect him. Why ??? If Bush was still the President and had done everything Obama has done, I doubt you could find a Democrat in the country to support him. So what gives ? Is party (tribe) really THAT important ? Is it more important than country, the Constitution, fiscal sanity, and honesty ???
If any of you are confused as to what I mean here, allow me to explain. Let's play the 'What If His Name Was Bush ?' game. Imagine Bush was still the President, and had done what Obama has done. Would you still support these things ?...To read more or comment...
