Death By PC

The shooting of the school children was one of the most horrific events I have ever seen. Keep in mind I watched the planes crash into the WTC towers on 9/11 and have spent the last 9 years of my life working in an inner city ER. I have seen all manner of depravity done to humans, including children.

It has also followed the typical pattern of the left screaming for gun control. Being that this was mostly children, the left was in rare form on this one with Mayor Bloomberg in front of a camera while the victims were still dying.

We have even had at least one Congressman say we need to take advantage of these deaths and one thoroughly repugnant British journalist wants us to tear up the US Constitution.

The icing though was the latest outrage from the professional groups for Psychiatrists and mental health professionals over comments made by the NRA CEO Wayne LaPierre.

In his recent comments he has called for armed guards in schools and for us to pay more attention to the mental health system.

His comments were a little inartful, calling the shooters lunatics, etc.

While he is right in that it takes a lunatic to commit such an act, using words like lunatic, monsters,or insane do not help move along the national conversation and makes him look like a loose cannon. In my opinion he could have made his case better if he had stayed away from incendiary words such as this.

With that said, what the APA and other groups did next was considerably more dangerous. They came out and attacked LaPieere and made clear that any conversation about the mentally ill and crime was out of bounds.

They took exception with the caricature (a slight mostly imagined on their part) that the mentally ill are psychopathic killers.

It is a common misconception that the mentally ill are dangerous. Some can be, of course. This is no more evident than many of the recent shootings, Connecticut, Colorado, Virginia Tech, Tucson, etc. A common theme is that all had a history of mental illness.

This does not mean however that the mentally ill are prone to violence. A small minority does not constitute the whole. For the most part the mentally ill are victims of violence instead of the perpetrator. They are often victims of domestic or care-giver abuse, sexual assaults, robberies and scams, and even murder.

So the outrage by the mental health advocates is not entirely misplaced, just inappropriate and misdirected.

What we are seeing from them is an absolute refusal to even discuss the issue of mental illness and violence. They are not only not refusing to discuss the notion but are ridiculing anyone who brings it up.

Why is this dangerous? They have made it politically incorrect to speak of such things. The media will now be cowered into submission. Leftist politicians will trip over themselves to be clear that some of their best friends are mentally ill. Finally, spineless Republicans will slink away and not speak of the matter for fear of being labeled insensitive to the mentally ill.

This is dangerous because the very conversation we need to be having now is about the mental health system and why it is failing us so miserably. We need to be discussing why these guys keep slipping through the cracks.

The "experts" who are attacking LaPieere need to take a good long look in the mirror. It is not the NRA that caused this mess in our mental health system, it is the members of the APA and other groups. Instead of having an adult conversation and getting these people the help they need, we will attack anyone who dares speak of it and cow them into submission.

This is becoming a far too common theme in our society. Terrorism is virtually non-existent anymore for fear of offending the Muslims. Illegal immigration is now a a matter of documentation and nothing more. To insist otherwise is racist.

We do not have conversations about terrorism anymore so we are under threat of dying. We cannot talk about the illegals anymore so our economy is in ruins. Now we have to pretend that some people who are highly psychotic, off meds, and being incompetently managed by a system that is broken are not a threat to us. So, we will continue seeing these attacks.

Quote Of The Week

I know. I said I was going to stay away. This quote just sucked me back in though. I could not resist.

 “I stood in line for four hours. They better give me a Wal-Mart gift card, or something.”

 Rodney Booker


This was said at a job fair in Chicago in which people waited in line to apply for city jobs only to find out that they actually had to apply on line, the fair was just for info and job skills.

Further, I will say I sympathize with Mr Booker a bit in that the city did not make this clear in advertising the fair. It does sound like it was poorly planned.

Take the quote in total though. "They better give me a Wal-Mart gift card, or something."

Does this sum up the 2012 election or what? He was at a free jobs fair in which the worst he was going to do was hear descriptions about city jobs and get help with resume building, etc.

Have we become a society in which even free is not good enough anymore?

We have a sizable portion of the population that not only does not pay taxes, they get a tax return on the taxes they do not pay. We give tax cuts to people who do not pay taxes. Sadly though, this is viewed by many as an unfair tax system for the poor.

I have said previously that the infamous "Obama phone lady" was the poster child for the 2012 election. Sadly she is not alone, she has legions behind her.

We could even see in the near future an even more amusing electoral phenomenon.

Obama has been widely criticized by the left for not being liberal enough. I am a little unclear on how liberal you have to be if you believe this but I have seen liberal trolls at other blogs saying this (yes, I am talking about a certain fowl).

Could we be headed to a time when even Democratic politicians will be held accountable by voters for not giving enough stuff away? Is this the new standard for a large portion of our country?

I have often used the slippery slope analogy, often for abortion, gay marriage, etc. I think it is a real and insidious progression of societal attitudes and mores.

Are we at a point in which the entitlement mentality is so pervasive that someone as fiscally far left as Obama will not be able to satisfy voters? Will we see liberal politicians out-giving each other?

The most relevant quote for all of this is from Alexander Fraser Tytler (often mistakenly attributed to Alexander Hamilton or Thomas Jefferson).

 “A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the people discover they can vote themselves largess out of the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidate promising the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that democracy always collapses over a loose fiscal policy--to be followed by a dictatorship.”

Is this where we are headed?

Fed Up

I have been largely absent for the last few months.

Some of this is because of starting a new job.

Most of it though is because I am simply fed up.

The election yesterday capped it for me but it has building for awhile. The media is so far in the tank for Obama and the rest of the far left that there is no real chance of a Republican getting elected.

Mitt Romney ran a fairly good campaign. Not perfect but good enough to win IMHO. He never had a chance.

Part of this was from the attacks from the left, usually inaccurate, always parroted by the media.

The large part of it though was the media working as part cheerleader for Obama, part shield.

This was no more evident than in the two most important recent events.

Sandy. Contrast the coverage of Katrina-Bush v Sandy-Obama. People are suffering on the East Coast. They are going without sufficient safe drinking water, fuel, etc. Yet the country thinks Obama is doing a bang-up job.

Why? He went to New Jersey for a photo-op and then back to the campaign trail.

Then there is Benghazi. We have never had an incident of terrorism so badly f'ed up on as many levels as this  one. Yet again, Obama gets high marks.

What has me really sour today though is the obvious and wide spread cheating yesterday and the lack of response by the Republicans.

We had:

-The New Black Panther Party out again.

-A poll worker in Chicago wearing an Obama hat.

-A gym voting place with an Obama mural behind the booths.

-A voting place with a picture of Obama on the wall.

-Allegations of unions in Nevada pushing illegals into voting.

-At least two incidents in which fathers of adults in group homes complaining Democrats took their daughters to the polls and "helped" them vote for Obama.

-70 Republican poll observers chased away from the polls in Philly, one woman literally assaulted in the process.

-A Republican poll observer threatened with gun violence in Detroit.

-18 people registered to vote at addresses that are in a large field in Cleveland.

-NAACP officials taking mover a polling place in Texas. Moving people up in line. Openly campaigning for Obama.

-A Republican Senate candidate for New York being told she was supposed to vote for the Democrats by a poll worker.

-The usual dead, illegals, prisoners registered to vote.

Today Republican officials act like this is just another day. None of this happened. Now I realize Holder is corrupt and will not investigate any of it but where are Republicans?

(Note: I did not link to the above because it would take way too much time although I assure everyone they all happened. Google the incidents and you will see them).

I'm done. I'm not necessarily giving up, my nature is to fight if there is a reason. I just don't see a reason. The fix is in. The game is done.

I am keeping my blog in case I change my mind. Further, I will likely have an occasion to post something.

I will try to make some rounds now that my life is settling down a bit. I apologize for not coming around. I genuinely enjoy the friends I have made and cannot imagine losing contact altogether.

I am working on another project more for fun than anything. If I do develop it, I will let you know. It may be ready in the next couple of days if I do it.

So long for now and thanks for stopping by, I have enjoyed the company.

Yet Another Pathetic News Article (with a theory)

47 of your pro-voting arguments

Read the article

47 arguments? not 40? 45? 50?

Could the fringe media get any more pathetic?

Was choosing the number 47 a coincidence? Yeah right...

I have had this thought recently.

Is it possible part of the Obama slide/Romney rise in the polls is from backlash against the media?

The far left media has been in the tank for Obama and the rest of the Democratic party for years (read decades).

This is obvious.

This year though we have seen the media become increasingly unhinged. Since the polls have been turning against the anointed one and in Romney's favor the media has gone completely insane.

There is one article on Drudge that contains a fairly long list of MSNBC morons attacking Romney for collecting goods for the hurricane victims.

So the question is, is it possible the media is driving voters to Romney?

The public is souring on Obama and his attacks. Is it possible the media is helping this?

Quote Of The Week

“I don’t think he understands the Constitution of the United States…He’s the President of the United States. You don’t say, ‘you’ll get your chance,’”


Most will dismiss this as Matthews being the idiot he truly is. That's fair and certainly is not inaccurate.

Realize though, these guys believe this nonsense.

Leftists believe that anything Obama utters is the gospel truth and there has to be some law, man-made or otherwise, against questioning the comment.

In short, Obama is viewed as a mixture of a potentate and minor deity by many on the left and the idea that he is not offered the proper deference is offensive to them.

Who Could Think This Was A Good Idea?

I don't have a real preference as to where I do my business when I have to pee. Any old clean urinal would do. Add in a place to wash my hands and I'm good.

This though...

who could possibly think this was a good idea?

Read the article.

Monday, October 8, 2012


I have an 18 year old son who is just starting out in life.

He is going to college after graduating this year from high school and is joining the workforce. He has had a job at a restaurant for about a month and by all accounts appears to be working quite hard at it.

He also has a friend who is currently starting a new job.

Both of them had a hard time meeting all of the new requirements for a new job. Having to show proof of residency, show an actual Soc Sec card, etc. They are working at different places and in different industries.

I have not started a new job in 15 years and do not remember ever having to do any of this.

My question is, is this because of immigration laws? Are there new requirements for employment to make people prove they are citizens and therefore keep illegals from working?

If so......

why the Hell are we letting all of the illegal immigrants stay and work?

Are we really harassing people born and bred in the US, who are trying to work in this horrendous economy, at the same time that we are turning a blind eye to the illegals the above mentioned laws were meant to stop?

Finally, are others seeing this or am I crazy?

What Do You Think About This?

Much has been said, good, bad, and indifferent, of Romney's remark about 47% of the population not paying taxes.

I have thought about this remark and whether I agree with his analysis that these people will vote for Obama.

I have decided that while there is merit to what he said, as with most things like this it is an over-simplification.

The group is comprised of a wide range of people. Among them are the elderly living on fixed incomes, the entitled class, the working poor, college students, etc.

Obviously the entitled class belongs to Obama. They are definitely going to vote for the one that gives them the handouts.

The working poor is a mixed lot. A lot of them are decent hard-working people who for varying reasons do not make a high income. Some of this is self-inflicted, some of it is from a life time of bad breaks.

They have one thing in common though, they want to make more.

There has been much debate about the effectiveness of the class-warfare practiced by Obama and other liberals.  A strong argument has been made that many among the working class and middle class do not buy into the class warfare bit. The argument is that they do not begrudge the wealthy their income, they envy it.

I think their vote is a little less reliable for Obama. A lot of this will be determined by how they view their path to a better life. Some will see this through self sufficiency and will see the danger in the entitlement class. Some will see the government as their savior. These will definitely vote for Obama.

The elderly are another group that is not real reliable for Obama but for different reasons. They are not primarily part of the entitled class, often their money comes from social security.

As an aside, I want to speak briefly of social security. There are some who consider it an entitlement. While I  do not like how it is administered, it is not an entitlement in my opinion. In my mind this is my money and I want it. I have worked for 30 years now paying into it and will work another 10 - 15 before I collect.

These people have a vested interest in us moving away from an entitlement economy. Many of them are smart enough to know that we cannot sustain our economy by paying out to so many who do not in turn contributed to society. They have spent a lifetime budgeting and know you cannot survive for long paying out more than you take in.

Their vested interest in moving away from entitlements lies in their children and grandchildren. They are at a point in their lives in which they have enjoyed what the US has had to offer. They want their descendants to have the same opportunities they had. In fact, most want those who follow them to do better.

Many of them are not going to see Obama as the answer to this.

Finally there are the college students and newly graduated.

The college students are not paying taxes because many of them simply do not work enough due to the pressure of college.

This group traditionally has been a fairly reliable voting bloc for the Democratic Party. Many of them are still idealistic. They have not lived long enough to see the destructive powers of an entitlement culture. They are, quite frankly, brainwashed by the indoctrination of today's public schools and universities. They are spoon fed the notion that we need to provide for all, whether they are willing to provide for themselves. They are taught it is only fair.

They are not a lock for the Dems this time around though. Many of them are becoming disillusioned by the persistent gloomy outlook after college under Obama. They see friends who have graduated recently that are not finding work.

They are not likely going to rush out and vote for Romney but they are also not feeling the thrill this time around. Obama is not stirring this group as he did in '08.

Finally, the other half of this group, the recently graduated. They are not a reliable group for Obama either. They are a part of the 47% because they cannot find work or are among the segment of the population that is underemployed.

Many of them voted for Obama in '08 but are realizing that the man they voted for then was full of empty promises. The world they are going into out of college is not the world Obama promised them when they voted last time.

Now we could argue all day if any or all of the above should pay taxes. That is not the point of this post. The point is to discuss the merits of his statement.

While I tended to agree with what seemed to be the sentiment behind the comment, I cannot agree wholly with it.

I take exception on two fronts.

One, I think some of the people he grouped together where maligned unfairly. I think there are good people in the group who want nothing different than the rest of us, to make a decent living and be left alone to live our lives.I also think they are not the mindless Obamamots he attempted to portray them as.

Second, I think he attacked the wrong group. Level of taxation is not the real root of our problem, we all want to pay fewer taxes. The problem we have is the notion that people are entitled to a living, health care, a phone, etc, regardless of their willingness to earn it.

Mitt Romney should have left the 47% alone and gone after the entitled among them and their enablers in government instead.

Now This From The AP

I was reading the following article on Fox.

 House lawmaker blocks $450M in US assistance to Egypt

Read the article.

It is a short one by the Associated Press about a Republican lawmaker, Kay Granger (TX), who was holding up the vote approving aid to Egypt over the recent embassy attacks by Islamic film critics.

This caught my eye:

More recently, demonstrators breached the U.S. Embassy in Cairo to protest an anti-Islam video

Where do I start?

"more recently"?


By "more recently" do they perhaps mean on 9/11? An attack on 9/11 is now relegated to "more recently" by the AP?

Also, not to be nitpicking, I think the term they are looking for is "overran". Breached seems like they were just inside the wall and the US forces held them at bay.

The real kicker though is obviously the bit about the film. The AP knows damned well that this has been determined to be a terrorist attack and not about the film. A film that it has been strongly speculated that none, or at least very few, of the protesters had ever even heard about.

Reality is that the AP has become state media. They are now getting their talking points from the Obama administration.

Salute To "Fashion Has Heart"

We have a three week indoor and outdoor art show in Grand Rapids that is in it's 4th year.

My wife, kids, and I were downtown walking around visiting the exhibits this past weekend when we wandered into a shop that said it was one of the venues.

The shop turned out to be quite unique.

Their mission statement summed it up best:

 [Fashion Has Heart] aims to benefit wounded soldiers through utilizing the mediums of fashion, art, and design.

What they do is pair up a wounded soldier with an artist. The two collaborate and design artwork that is unique and special to the soldier. They then incorporate this art into t-shirts, hoodies, posters, etc that the shop sells to benefit the soldiers.

While I was walking around the shop I noticed a Michigan map on the wall with markers scattered about the map. One of the staff saw me looking it over and pointed to a row of dogtags hanging from a wire stretched across one of the street view windows.There was one dog tag for each marker on the ma, each representing a soldier from Michigan who gave the ultimate sacrifice.

Check out their site:

and joining me in a salute to their efforts.

Quote Of The Week

the stuff they do on hard wood, it blows my mind

Joe Biden, Vice President of the United States, while commenting on high school cheerleaders.


The question is, did he know what he was saying and how he was saying it?

Is This Deer Smarter Than 47% Of Voters?

Texas couple snaps photo of deer destroying Obama front yard sign 

Read the article.

It seems that this couple's re-elect Obama sign was being destroyed. According to the article it was only their Obama sign that was being trashed, none of the Romney signs on the street were bothered.

Because of this, the couple was determined to get to the bottom of it. The wife was able to snap a photo of the deer just as their Obama sign was falling to the ground mangled.

The question here isn't why the deer was doing this, that seems pretty obvious.

The question is why doesn't the couple have as much sense as a deer?

Military Experts Question Yet Another DNC Military Photo

First we had the Democrats showing pictures of Russian naval ships instead of American ships at the Democratic National Convention.

DNC tribute to veterans commits major oopskie


Then they were caught using fighter jets from the Turkish Air Force instead of American jets.

Fighter jets in Democratic convention’s military montage were Turkish, not American


Now there appears to be a new embarrassment for the Democratic National Committee. Seems experts are now questioning their picture of Armored Personnel Carriers from the United States Army.

I don't know how they do it. I find it amazing that these experts can look at a single picture and distinguish between different countries.

Quote Of The Week

“Another way would be to say, Americans eat peanut butter and jelly, do you have anything like that. Let them tell you. Maybe they eat torta or pita. What about Somali or Hispanic students, who might not eat sandwiches?” 

Verenice Gutierrez, Elementary School Principal, Portland, Oregon.

This Principal is making the case that she sees "subtle racism" everywhere. Evidently this includes whenever one of these racist little brats asks for a peanut butter and jelly sandwich.

You have got to read this article, there is simply too much to post on.

This whole discussion of "white privilege" is really starting to give me a red ass.

From where I am sitting typing right now, white privilege means working my ass off for the privilege of struggling to pay my bills.

I also get the privilege of paying other people's mortgages, fuel bills, food bills, etc.

Basically I do all of this for the privilege of paying for the policies and programs of leftist loons like this nutjob.

Programs that make up for past racism, sexism, genderism, lunchism, and all of the other -isms "my people" have committed over the years.

Am I the only getting sick to death of horseshit like this?

While Obama Slept

Read this article from the LA Times.

The US Embassy in Benghazi was being over-ran by terrorists.

Obama was briefed on this Tuesday afternoon.

Tuesday night Obama was informed that the Ambassador was missing and unaccounted for.

Obama went to bed. He was informed of the Ambassadors death Wednesday morning when he got up.

What are your thoughts on this?

Should the President remain up to monitor a situation as bad as this?

Would this be an issue if it were Bush?

Do We Really Still Remember?

It's that time of year again, September 11th.

Time for the politicians to pretend we are all united as one to defend our great country.

Time to set aside petty political differences and, for one day, there is no partisan divide.

It's a day to run out and get a picture snapped with a service member. Since this is the year of the woman in politics and we have a war on women, the ideal would be to make sure there is at least one member of the fairer sex in there. This way we can show that not only are we patriotic but we also care about the plight of women.

The President of the United States is currently at a ceremony at the Pentagon, must have gotten directions to it from Google maps.

The Vice President is at Shanksville, Pennsylvania. Oh right, Pennsylvania is a battleground state this year.

I know this all sounds cynical and insensitive to the memory of those who died. It is neither, it is disgust.  

In the years since the horrific events of 9/11 we have seen an evolution in this country in which we have gone from wanting to punish the attackers and prevent another attack to using the attacks as political fodder and apologizing for us ourselves being the cause of any ill will towards the United States.

There is a segment of the country who look on the events of 9/11 with derision and as a tool to bludgeon George Bush and America itself with.

Bush did an admirable job this day. He remained calm and strong, thus assuring a reeling populace.

There are those though that have attacked him mercilessly for it. He did not do enough at the same time that he was doing too much. He did not protect us from the attacks at the same time that he himself bombed the buildings.

We have a new President who, upon taking office, set upon a whirlwind tour of Middle Eastern countries apologizing for American policy since 9/11 and basically everything we did before this day. Since his apology tour he has spent his time either polishing the ass of every despot in the Islamic world or at the very least ignoring their threat o us.

We have a Justice Department and Homeland Security department that are working overtime to protect us from the terrorism of middle aged white conservatives while preaching patience and caution before we label an attack by an Islamist as terrorism.

We have had a deranged individual labeled as a right wing terrorist (grossly inaccurately) for a shooting in Arizona by the same government officials who took months to decide that an attack on a US military base by a Muslim man who had a known association with an Islamic terrorist may have been an act of terror.

The same media who attacked George Bush for remaining calm and not running screaming from a classroom of children dismissed the actions of the current President for holding a press conference immediately after the Fort Hood shooting and did not mention it until after a 3 minute shout out to members of the Tribal Nations Conference he had attended earlier in the day.

We have let political correctness run amok to the point of being a threat to the very national security of the United States.

I remember the horror of 9/11 and honor those who died as I have no doubt that most do. I have not forgotten the attack by Islamist terrorist and the danger they still pose to us.

I am disgusted though how this day of tragedy has been twisted and used by some from within the US itself as a weapon against us.

At the beginning I said the following "It's that time of year again, September 11th. ". While this may have offended some, I do not apologize. This day has great significance to me but, quite frankly, it is not the only day I remember.

The Racist DNC

Whenever states try to pass voter ID laws all we here is that it is racist to ask for ID to vote. It is nothing more than a re-incarnation of the old Poll Tax that was used to prevent minority participation.

Well, it turns out the DNC is attempting to prevent minority participation at the Democratic National Convention this year.

This is a link to the form one has to fill out to pick up their credentials for the convention. Especially note this line of instructions about half way down.

 All pickup persons must have a state-issued ID that matches the name submitted below.

We need to stop this blatant racism of the Democrats. No one should be dis-enfranchised just because of an inability to obtain ID. One could only hope we will see a lawsuit stopping this abhorrent practice once and for all.

Hat tip to Twitchy for the blog.

Quote Of The Week

‘We won’t have the fact-checkers dictate our campaign. We will not let the truth get in the way.’”

Neil Newhouse, Pollster, Mitt Romney campaign

This quote is attributed to Mr Newhouse by Barack Obama as reported by the New York Times.

There is only one problem, it is not what Mr Newhouse said. What he said, while a little similar, has an entirely different meaning.

Following is the real quote:

“These fact-checkers come to those ads with their own sets of thoughts and beliefs. We’re not going to let our campaign be dictated by fact-checkers.”

Read the article

While the statement he made was kind of a dumb one to make IMHO, it is not the same as what Obama said and what the New York Times is reporting.

We might as well get used to this though, this is the American media.

While no one is calling Obama on this, we do have almost the entire fringe media out furiously fact-checking Paul Ryan's claims of marathon running prowess.

It seems that he misrepresented himself on his fastest marathon time in that he said he ran in less than 3 hours when he actually ran in over 4 hours.

When will these politicians learn that there are records? They can lie but sharp minded investigative journalists will find the truth eventually.

In this case we had the Associated Press, ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, CNN, and the Los Angeles Times uncover this story and report on it.

No word yet if Romney will replace him on the ticket.

Dear (Your Name Here), I am Sorry For the Loss....

Just when you think Obama can get no lower, he does something that shows there is always more down.

This Is The Democratic Party Now



The title of the article pretty much says it all. I strongly recommend you read the article.

Basically, the DNC is hosting a 2 hour Muslim prayer session before the Friday night slate.

Not only are they, yet again, they are doing it with radical Islamists.

Not only did the Dems set up this prayer session, they rebuffed a request by Cardinal Timothy Dolan to do a  prayer at the convention.

Cardinal sin: Bam blew off DNC blessing


This move is likely political in that it is payback for the lawsuit Catholics, including Dolan, have filed against the administration over the mandatory birth control ruling.

It is also stupid considering Dolan is appearing at the RNC and Paul Ryan is a Catholic.

Just keep telling yourself, 5 more months and he's gone.

Obama Pays Tribute To Himself Neil Armstrong

Here We Go Again

One of my arguments against the push to legalize gay marriage is that we don't know where it will stop. What "rights" will we be protecting next. I may have an answer.

Asexuals – the fourth sexual orientation


There appears to be a small movement to have this group recognized with one researcher even suggesting they be afforded protection.

"We want asexuality to be recognised as a valid sexual orientation, rather than a disorder or something people have to hide." 

So companies will now have to hire a certain percentage of asexual employees. Schools will not be able to discriminate against the sexless. Political campaigns will scramble over themselves to have at last a couple of asexual staff members on staff just to show they are inclusive. Finally, we will have to ask all visitors to the hospital if they have sex out of fear of not allowing an asexual person to visit their, um, partner?

It's going to be confusing.

Read the article, it's short but entertaining. While reading it I thought that it was like something straight out of The Onion but they are clearly serious.

Did Some On The Right Sucker Obama?

Joe Biden has been making a real ass of himself lately. Noting new but he dos seem to be overdosing on the stupid pills lately.

He has been saying things that, even by his own previously established ridiculously low standards, have been idiotic.

It has become apparent that he is an embarrassment to the Obama administration.

It has also become apparent that he has become a liability in a year when the election is going to be close and depend on success in a few close swing states.

This has become even more apparent since Mitt Romney selected Paul Ryan as his running mate.

Paul Ryan is the guy that has it together. He is smart, personable, crowd pleasing, and hand fishes for catfish.

Biden is the crazy uncle that you have over only at Thanksgiving. He comes and sits in the front room and makes everyone uncomfortable with his loony rantings and talk that is not appropriate for a family gathering. Everyone knows he's like this but they know he's crazy and they have simply suffered through the family gatherings over the years, relieved when his wife finally takes him home.

Anyone who does not believe that the Obama campaign was not making plans, or at least exploring the possibility of, dumping this nutbag is just as crazy themselves. The talk may not have gotten very far and not likely too far outside the President''s inner circle but you know it was there.

It does have to be noted that Obama, Biden, and Hillary Clinton met this morning at the White House. This is  significant in that Clinton is the target of the talk as to who would replace Biden on the ballot.

In comes Sarah Palin, Rush Limbaugh, Rudy Giuliani, etc.

They, and several others on the right, were openly speculating about and/or openly calling for Obama to dump Biden.

I was a little puzzled by this because it was not very self-serving. An Obama/Biden ticket would be far easier to beat than an Obama/Clinton ticket. Biden is an albatross where Clinton could be small advantage. I am not convinced Clinton would be a guarantee for a win. Basically, I see Biden as a bigger liability than I see Clinton as an asset.

So, why were so many on the right pushing Obama to drop Biden? Did they head Obama off at the pass?

Is it possible that having so many on the right calling for Obama to drop Biden was the one thing that made it impossible for him to do it? If he had dropped Biden after calls from the right to do so would Obama look weak? Would it just serve to highlight to the country that bringing Biden into begin with, and making excuses for him for 3 years, was a huge mistake? Did it keep Obama from pulling the old "Biden is too sick to run again" bit?

Finally, I could not help but notice that the calls from the right seemed...coordinated? It seems funny that after a long career of idiocy by Biden that so many on the right all of a sudden wanted him gone. Maybe the right is taking a cue from the left and getting on the same page?

What are your thoughts?

Will Tampa Burn This Month?

I am genuinely fearing for the safety of the people of Tampa.

 As everyone knows, the RNC convention is in Tampa later this month. I am sincerely afraid that the city will burn. Look at some of these points.

 -The professional anarchy folks have been quite. Last year we had the Occupy idiots all over the country.

No one is around this year but you still hear bits from them. I believe they are lying in wait for the convention.

-The Occupy nuts have been given a green light by the Obama administration

Revealed: Emails show Obama administration told police to 'stand down' and not arrest Occupy protesters

Read the article

-The Democrats have been getting nasty, with no apologies.

 Look at Biden's recent "They're going to put y'all back in chains" insane rant and the refusal by the campaign to back off the remarks.

 Recall the 'cancer' commercial and yet another refusal to disavow a commercial that even people on the left are squeamish about.

 -Remember the hatred and bigotry on display by the left over the Trayvon Martin shooting.

 -Go back to the beginning and the refusal by the Obama Justice Department to prosecute the New Black Panthers for ethnic intimidation.

 -Now, check this out:


Michelle Williams, New Black Panthers chief of staff threatens the upcoming RNC convention in Tampa FL  


If this were a country of laws anymore, and our Secret Service wasn't a bunch of whoring morons, this crazy racist bitch would be in jail right now.

To the people of Tampa, keep the fire extinguishers handy.

The Gift That Keeps On Giving

First, I should probably explain my absence. It has been a couple of busy months. I have had a 50th anniversary party for my parents, my sons high school graduation and open house, and I changed jobs. I could use any of the above as an excuse but it would not be honest.

To be quite frank, I got a little burnt out. I simply needed a break. This wasn't something that happened quickly. This is why I didn't post an "I'm taking a break for awhile" post. I did get busy and slowed down my posting. I realized one day I had not been doing it much. Then I realize I did not care.

I have missed talking to the friends I have made through this blog and have though of you often. I feel as if I am a little more energized now and will be back around.

Enough nonsense about me.

This article was enough to draw me back in

Biden Invokes Paul Ryan's Deceased Father to Question VP Candidate's Values

And I'm glad to see that Congressman Ryan likes his dad, too, and quotes his dad. I mean that sincerely. But my dad [had] a lot of wisdom.

Paul Ryan's father died when he was 15 years old. 

I know we have made a lot about Biden's gaffes and we will be here again. the man is complete and total idiot. One can only hope Obama does not figure this out before the election because Biden is the gift that keeps on giving. 

I wonder if there is a little something more here though. I wonder if part of the problem is that he is just a complete and total ass. I suspect part of the issue with him saying stuff like this is that he simply doesn't care. 

There have been articles lately about a forthcoming book that makes the claim that Obama hates Romney. Not just as a competitor but genuinely hates him. I have often gotten the impression that Biden seems like a jerk.

We have talked about the arrogance of both of these men, Biden and Obama, Is it too far-fetched that they really are nothing more than small, hateful men at the core? 

Maybe Biden's gaffes, such as this one about Ryan, aren't as humorous as we think.

Walker Election A Portend?

The recall election is over in Wisconsin and Scott Walker has won.

The White House and the rest of the Dems are trying their best to spin this as nothing more than a local election. It has no bearing on the November elections at all.

While reading this, keep in mind that Wisconsin is a big deal for Obama in November. It has 10 electoral votes, not a lot but it could be huge in a close election. Beyond that is the notion that if they were to lose Wisconsin, then what else would they lose? Michigan? Pennsylvania? Ohio? Minnesota?

So they can save their "it has no ramifications" bit for someone else.

To the point though.

As I often do, I look deeper into the exit polls for signs of danger (or reward for us).

As everyone knows, this entire recall election was about Walker "busting" unions. He is the bogey man for the left. The unions despise him. Unions poured money and resources into this election like there is no tomorrow.

Guess what? According to a Fox News exit poll 38% of voters from union households voted for Walker. Not a big number by itself. Certainly not 51%, the magic number needed to win an election.

Keep in mind the money poured into the election by unions. The demonization of Walker by the unions over the last year or so. After all the unions have thrown at him, after they have spent a year making him the man who will single handily destroy unions in the US, he wins almost one in four union votes?

Now, take this race to Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Indiana, Illinois, or any other pro-union state without Walker on the ballot. Would that 38% be 45% in one of these states?

Forgetting any other conjecture on Romney garnering a large portion of the union vote, do you think the unions can contain their members on a politician they have not campaigned so hard against for a year?

Think Obama can lose 38% of the union vote in one of these states and win it? Think he can lose many of these states and win the election?

Things are getting interesting.

Obama Solves Country's Traffic Problems

Anyone that lives in even a fairly large city knows that traffic snarls are a pain in the rear, especially if your car seat is not comfortable.

Well, don't worry. Not only has Dear Leader fixed our economy, racial climate, and world standing, he has cut down on traffic congestion.

 Gridlock eases in many metro areas

Read the article.

Thanks to Obama's economic and energy policies, we have fewer people needing to drive to work and those who do work are buying less gas.

What a guy. Who out there says this guy doesn't deserve a second term? I mean, come on, four more years of him and the few of us with jobs left will be able to zip right into work without being slowed down at all.

A Belated Birthday

Note: This is a few days late. I have been busy with Mother's Day, work, and life.

For those of you who do not know who the above lady is, let me educate you.

Born May 12, 1820 to affluent British parents in Florence, Italy. She grew to buck tradition, and her family, and became a nurse. This was unseemly at the time for a proper British lady of her stature. Florence always brushed this off, saying that she was called by God to nursing.

She went on to further the stature and practice of nursing in the Crimean War.

Finally in 1860 she formed the first secular nursing school in the world at St. Thomas' Hospital in London, making Florence Nightingale the most prominent person in founding my present profession.

For more info, read her Wiki page here.

While some still look upon a man in nursing as being a little suspect or even charming, I unashamedly pay homage to the founder of my profession.

As some may remember, my grandmother died last August. She was in and out of the hospital over the last couple of years of her life. My dad always sang the praises of the nurses caring for her. He even took a couple of big bags of popcorn up as a snack one night for them. (Note: if you want to thank a nurse, give food. We love food).

At the end she was in the hospital and on a ventilator - a breathing machine for life support.

I went to see her one last time and spent the afternoon in the room with her. I got back home, we live across the state, and talked to my father on the phone and he decided - with the blessing of my Physician brother and I and the rest of our family - to withdraw life-support. We all agreed that she was not going to recover and we were only prolonging her life and possible discomfort.

I got some sleep and then drove back across the state to be with my family when they withdrew the ventilator later that day.

Through all of this I was on the other side of the health care relationship. I am always the one with the answers. Always there to help ease a family into their decision and help them deal with the consequences of this choice. Always there with assurances that they did the right thing, it was what their loved one would want, they're at peace now, etc.

Sitting there in the room with no control over the situation and no tasks to perform, I only had time to sit back and watch the nurses.

I am never one to blow my own horn. In fact, it is one of the reasons I have not furthered my career from being "just a nurse". I am a charge nurse and would rather my staff get the credit. In my mind I am just dong my job.

Sitting there in my grandmother's room I was amazed at what an incredible service we provide for our patients. However I am perceived at the end of my career, I will always be indebted to those who serve now and those who came before me.

Thank a nurse the next time you have the occasion and join me in wishing Florence Nightingale a belated birthday, she left an incredible legacy in all who wear the uniform.

This Is Not Good News

Poll: Romney has slight edge over Obama

Read the article.

This is not the first, and not likely the last, poll to show Romney ahead of Obama.

Also, it is too early for any poll to have any true relevance.

This poll, while a small margin, is still not good news for Obama.

-It is among registered voters. This is a gimmick long used by the MSM to show a Democrat leading in a race. The only poll that has any credibility IMHO is one that measures likely voters.

A poll just measuring registered voters is skewed for a couple of reasons.

One, it measures people who vote and people who do not. People who do not vote have no bearing on an election. An obvious fact that seems to be lost on the MSM.

Second, Republicans tend to be more reliable voters so often Democrats are over-counted in polls of registered voters. In other words, more of the voters who do not vote are Democrats so this inflates the strength of the Democratic candidate.

-It is by CBS. In my mind any poll conducted by the MSM is automatically suspect.

So, take these two aspects in mind and Obama is still trailing?

This is not good news - for Obama.

Oops, About That Whole Cherokee Thing


Elizabeth Warren, the Democratic candidate for the Senate in Massachusetts, has claimed for decades that she was of Native American ancestry.

Well, it turns out that not only may she not be a Cherokee, there is an additional twist.

Quote Of The Week

It is ironic that someone whose claim to fame is fighting bullying would resort to bullying tactics in attacking high school students who were offended by his outrageous remarks. 

 Jimmy LaSalvia, executive director of GOProud

 Read the article.

This article is what LaSalvia was referring to.

 Anti-Bullying Speaker Curses Christian Teens

Read the second article, it gives the best background on what is happening here.

Basically the speaker was Dan Savage, an anti-bullying activist. He was speaking at the National High School Journalism Conference.

He was talking about the intolerance of Christians and attacking the bible. When he started his tirade a group of students from Christian schools stood and walked out. He then proceeded to attack and swear at them to cheers and howls of laughter from the audience.

I will say, liberals do love irony.

Agree Or Disagree

I have posted several times in response to public school policies that seem absurd to me.

A school in Texas would not let two sisters wear t-shirts with the logo for Home For Our Troops on them because it violated the school dress code of not allowing shirts without collars.

Read the article.

Is this a case of political correctness run amok or should everyone have to follow the rules?

Notice in the article that this was not the first time the mother had violated the school dress code.

Further, are we seeing the "troop card" played too much?

Before anyone gets bent out of shape, think about it.

I have always used this blog to support our men and women in the armed forces. I have used it to call out transgressions against the troops. I think I have actually written about this group a few years ago. It is a great organization and has a presence here in West Michigan.

I ask again though, is there a limit to when and how often people can cry wolf when they do not get their way?

Do you think the troops are fighting in harms way for American citizens to flaunt law and public and/or school policy?

Or is this a case of intolerance by the school district? It certainly would not be the first time a school has banned troop support in their district. We all know the public school system is far-left at it's very core. Is this just a case of a school pushing it's political agenda?

For a bonus, read the comments that accompany the article. As of this writing, they were coming out in pretty strong support of the school. Many from vets.

What Do You Think About This?

I posted at fellow blogger Brooke's site, PaleoCon Command Center, this last weekend. Her post was about a painting inspired by the Trayvon Martin case. The picture was disturbingly racist and credit to her for being willing to expose it. Part of the side conversation was that it is going to be a long summer.

I think we are going to see a lot of rioting this summer.

There is a lot of unrest on the left.

There are racial tensions, largely because of the lack of jobs. This is especially ironic considering that they will not be rioting against the source of the lack of jobs, Barack Obama.

We also have not seen the last of the 99% idiots by a long shot. I think a lot of the mainstream turds in this movement have gotten bored with it and are back home with their wealthy parents resuming their parasitical lives. What will be left over this summer are the socialists, communists, and anarchists. These are people that spend their free time burning police cars, shitting on the front porch of law-abiding citizens, and throwing garbage cans through the windows of stores owned by people committing the heinous crime of trying to make a living.

These people are like cockroaches that have come scurrying out from under the fridge when the 99%'ers started in.

I think we will see rioting in Chicago for the NATO summit, rioting at both conventions, and just general mayhem.

We will see rioting at the drop of a hat at any slight, real or imagined.

As an example, wait and see what happens if George Zimmerman is acquitted. This is a likely scenario given the evidence presented so far. Take an emotionally charged case, have the professional race baiters of Jackson and Sharpton along with the usual idiots in Congress screaming racism, add the New Black Panther Party. Then have the man acquitted and we have the ingredients for a good old fashioned riot.

I have a different take on all of this though.

I think it is going to be harmful to The One. I think it is going to more widespread and violent than last year and the media will not be able to control it.

Obama and the leadership of the Democratic Party have joined themselves at the hip with all of these people.

They have called the 99&’ers patriotic, which to them patriotism evidently means shitting on a police car.

They have not only shown strong support for the race-baiters in Florida but also have refused to ignore the public display of hatred and calls for violence by the NBPP.

Finally, we may actually see a sleeping giant in the GOP. There are several Republicans around the country, Mitt Romney, Donald Trump, the leadership of the RNC, etc. that are willing to say the king has no clothes.

This is one of the main reasons we lost in 2008, an absolute fear of speaking out against Obama.

Yes, this is going to be a long summer but it may lead to a nice fall…

What do you think?

quote Of The Week

It's a disgrace that man hasn't been dragged out of his house and tied to a car and taken away. That's the only kind of retribution that people like that understand. It's a disgrace that man hasn't been shot yet. Forget about him being arrested--the fact that he hasn't been shot yet is a disgrace.

Mike Tyson talking about George Zimmerman.

I don't know about anyone else but my mind is made up. I was waiting to hear the opinion of Mike Tyson before I decided how I felt about this case.

Now that we have heard from all of the geniuses on the left, Rep Hank Johnson (Guam could tip over), Rep Bobby Rush (formerly of the Black Panther Party), Mike Tyson (convicted rapist), it is clear what we should all think.

-How easy would it really have been for the police to racially profile someone with tinted windows?

The feds are accusing of bad faith in his negotiations. Get this:

The U.S. Justice Department tells one of Sheriff Joe Arpaio's lawyers in a letter Tuesday that the sheriff's office's precondition on being given facts to back up its 22-page letter alleging violations would result in the cancellation of negotiations

Quote Of The Week

“We have launched an internal investigation into the editorial process surrounding this particular story.”

Statement from NBC.

Read the article.

What is NBC looking into you ask?

The Today Show was running a fair and balanced story on the Trayvon Martin shooting. They were playing audio of the 911 call.

This is NBC's version of the tape:

Zimmerman: This guy looks like he’s up to no good. He looks black.

Now, the real version:

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.

Hey, wasn't it MSNBC that ran this picture about racism at the Tea Party rallies:

Instead of this one?

Just Another Liberal D-bag

Spike Lee tweeted what he thought was the address of George Martin in Florida.

Let's pause right there.

He was asking people to go to this man's house and harass him. There are people putting a bounty on his head. We have the NBPP saying they are going to form a militia to go and get this man. (aside: why the Hell is a black militia okay when a white one is a hate group?).

In short, there are a bunch of whack-jobs out there who would like to harm this man. A man who could very well be guilty of nothing more than protecting himself from an assault.

So what does Spike Lee do? The liberal POS sends the shooters address out so these nuts can go and harm him.

Problem is, that's not even the punch line yet.

It turns out that it was the wrong address. It was the address of a couple in their 70's who have no connection what-so-ever to the case except the misfortune of having a son with a similar name who lived with them briefly more than a decade ago.

That is still not the worst of it.

These people are being harassed. They have the media hounding them. They have gotten hate mail. They have had to move out of their house for their safety.

But we are still not to the worst of it.

This POS liberal refuses to apologize to them. When contacted his staff offered a "no comment".

Some Assaults Obama And Friends Have Yet To Comment On

President Barack Obama was concerned about the Traymont Martin shooting because the kid looked like him.

That must be why he has not shown much concern for these incidents.

Mississippi State releases more details on Saturday homicide

Notice this passage:

Three African American male suspects reportedly fled the scene in a blue Crown Victoria.

This was clearly a racially motivated killing. One can only assume the good men Jackson and Sharpton will stop by Mississippi since they are already in the neighborhood.

Then there is this one in which the perpetrators made racial comments during the attack.

Teen Set on Fire in Racial Attack; Media Silent

Hmm, that one happened about a month ago. That's the same response time as Obama and friends had on the Florida shooting. They'll probably comment on it any day now.

Obama Attempting To Walk Back Comments On Florida Shooting

"was speaking powerfully about this as a parent."..."no matter gender or race, this is a tragedy."

David Plouffe, White House adviser.

Read the article.

We have all heard about the shooting in Florida. While we have yet to hear any real evidence in the case, the shooter has been convicted by the court of public opinion and apparently sentenced to death by some in our society. Whatever else happens in the case, we still have a young man dead and family living the horror of any parent, the death of a child.

As he has been wont to do in other racially charged cases, President Obama quickly dove head first into the national discussion with what could easily be taken as a racially tinged statement.

The clear inference in his comment was that it was a tragedy because the kid looked like him. A comment that would have brought howls of protest from a white president. People would still be screaming if George Bush had made such a remark about a white teenager.

It seems as if Obama is now realizing that he may have made a mistake by misjudging how large the mob scene that is developing currently in Florida would become.

As with any case like this we have the Rev Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton rushing down to claim face time in front of any TV camera they can find. Truth, evidence, investigation all be damned. We don't need to know the truth, just give the man a fair trial and hang him.

Problem this time is someone slipped up and let the hard-core racists in. Now we have Louis Farrakhan and the New Black Panther Party in Florida forming a lynch mob.

We have Farrakhan calling for retaliation


Read the article.

Then we have the NBPP putting a bounty on the shooter's head and calling for the formation of a militia to hunt down the shooter and take matters into their own hands.

"An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth."..."If the government won't do the job, we'll do it."

Mikhail Muhammad, leader of the NBPP

Black Panthers offer $10,000 bounty to catch Trayvon killer

Read the article.

Bottom line is that Obama has once again, needlessly, put himself in a no-win situation with a racially-charged issue.

-If he backtracks now or condemns the NBPP and Farrakhan, as he should, he will get criticized from the left.

-If he does not criticize the NBPP and Farrakhan, which he should if he were to be fair, he will be attacked from the right as a racist and turning a blind eye to hatred from the left (again).

-Do nothing, as he pretty much is doing now, and the whole thing blows up in to a race-fueled frenzy and it is too late to do anything.

What is the solution? Elect a President (and by extension an Attorney General) that represents the entire country , not just one race.

Prefer Obama Over Romney - What Do You Think?

Rick Santorum has said if Mitt Romney is the nominee we might as well stick with Obama.

Read the article.

What do you think?

We have also had Newt Gingrich say he will stay in the campaign to try to derail Romney. Not to win, just to keep Romney from winning. His speech after the Mississippi and Alabama primaries bordered on delusional IMHO.

Like or don't like who we have as a choice this year, and I am not a huge fan of any of them, is this kind of rhetoric good for the GOP's prospects in the fall?

How could, for instance, Santorum or Gingrich now come out in the general election and throw their support (and supporters) behind Romney - the likely nominee?

Bottom line, they are writing campaign commercials for the Dems.

I wonder, and, as I said this is far from an endorsement, if it is time for Santorum and Gingrich to man up and step aside.

Gingrich was done when he started. His campaign has been a joke all along.

Santroum fought the good fight but, it's over. If he can't see this by now he's an idiot. He would have to get about 75% of the delegates from here out, in states where he is mostly trailing. There are some inspirational come-back stories, this isn't one of them.

Ron Paul, forget about it. He's quaint and a little crazy but completely irrelevant. He's hanging out until the end to give his supporters a voice at the convention. I'm not opposed to this. I actually respect it. And yes, it is different than trying to undermine the front runner like Newt is doing.

Forget a brokered convention. At best this would be disastrous for the GOP. What kind of dumb-asses do we look like to the swing voters if we cannot even choose a nominee? That inspires trust.

Also, who would be the nominee? Think Romney's supporters are going to be rabid supporters of a candidate that did not get any votes in the primary and was chosen instead by the party bosses? Should they be?

Think Romney is going to quietly go away if he has 85 - 90% of the delegates needed when no one else generated 40 - 50%? Should he?

The question for these gentleman becomes, which is more important - their country and party or their ego.

What are your thoughts?

The NAACP Wants ... Saudi Arabia To Investigate Our Voting Rights Record?

UN rights council delves into US voter I.D. laws

Read the article.

The make-up of the council who will judge us:

-China and Cuba, both known for their stellar human rights record

-Kuwait, allowed women to vote starting in 2005

-Qatar, women could vote starting in 2003

-Moldova, one of the pioneers. They have allowed women to vote for almost 20 years.

-Saudi Arabia, as of yet does not allow women to vote. Or drive. Or sunbathe.

What is the point? The point is that the NAACP, like the rest of the left, is willing to whore themselves out to make a political point.

What we need is for someone to have the stones to take the 2008 Black Panther's incident in Philadelphia. But then, the left would not see that as racism, it's against whitey.

The question is, what will Obama do if the UN council finds that we violate the rights of blacks?

The finding itself is irrelevant. It has no bearing onus and is from a council with no credibility what-so-ever.

But... will Obama and the "Justice Department" use this as ammunition against states trying to pass voter ID laws? Laws that have been deemed constitutional by SCOTUS, which obviously has no bearing with the left.

Addendum. Immediately after I posted this I went to and saw this article. Muammar Qaddafi and Libya are being praised for their human rights record by the same UN Human Rights Council that will investigate us.

What is there left to say?

Rush Has Company

There was a great article by Kirsten Powers published Sunday.

For those who do not know Ms Powers, she is a columnist, former member of Bill Clinton's staff, and Fox News contributer.

I see her as a fairly frequent guest on Special Report with Bret Baier. I like her although I don't very often agree with her because of her views. Bottom line? She's a consistent, strong willed liberal.

This introduction is important to know before you read this article. It is important to understand where she is coming from when she is writing this.

Rush Limbaugh Isn’t the Only Media Misogynist

Mar 4, 2012 10:00 AM EST

Rush Limbaugh apologized on Saturday for calling a Georgetown Law student a slut for testifying about contraception and starting a firestorm of outrage. Kirsten Powers says the liberals who led the charge need to start holding their own side accountable.

Read the article, it's well worth your time.

As a bonus, read this. It asks the question "Will Obama return the $1 million he got from Maher's PAC"?

Finally, when you are done, pass this on.

We are small bloggers with no real power but as a group we can make change.

Write your own piece, if you see fit.

It is time we bring the left kicking and screaming into the light of day. Time to put them on display for the misogynist, racist, hateful people they really are.

The media is not going to do it for us.

What Do You Think About This?

Medical Journal Advocates Killing Newborns

Read the article

This seems like a dumb question but what are your thoughts on this?

I have a thought on it that may surprise a bit but I want to see what other people think.

Read the article.

This is why the left hates any media that is not the nets, CNN, MSNBC, Associated Press, Reuters, well - you get the point.

It appears the Chairwoman of the DNC "Baghdad" Debbie Wasserman Schultz was going to be the keynote speaker at an organization headed by a man on the US' terrorist watch list. Schultz, who is Jewish, was scheduled to speak at a fundraiser.

As always happens when a lib gets caught by the non-MSM, she passed it off as a misunderstanding. Seems like quite a misunderstanding to me.

Bottom line, there is no moral compass on the left. Their only goal is to re-elect Obama. To hell with the US. No matter who they have to get in bed with to win.

Any questions?

Democrats For Santorum

We had our primary here in Michigan yesterday.

The Democratic Party, Democratic operatives, and unions came out for Rick Santorum. They did this mostly to embarrass Romney.

The amusing part of this that they are favoring Santorum over Romney because of Romney's opposition to the auto bailout which they both opposed. But, this is not a column about the idiocy of the left.

What is less amusing is that Santorum put out a robo call to Democrats today asking for their support.

Is this okay? Is it sleazy? Is it a case of anything goes to win? What are your thoughts?

Finally, does this hurt him going forward? Does he lose his conservative cred because of courting Democrats?

WHat do you think about it?
