The left, which invented first "hate speech" (opinions they didn't like) and then "hate crimes" (crimes judged less on the criminal's actions than on what he was presumed to be thinking), has now gone on to its epiphany, which is "hate" defined not by your words or deeds but by what other people have decided you really think. "Hate" is no longer what you do or say, but what a liberal says that you think and projects on to you. You are punished for what someone else claims you were thinking. It hardly makes sense, but it does serve a political purpose. You could call it Secondhand Hate.Hey, Secondhand Hate kills. Just ask super-smart federal official Janet Napolitano. She knows how systems work.

Also, consider some of these facts about the St. Louis County Government and its working relationships with (guess who?)
Is it surprising to learn that the Department of Health (the department that oversees the operations of Keith’s agency) works very closely with SEIU Local 1 on County Health related issues and policies?
And why now? Of all times? If they really wanted to punish Keith for his statements in favor of his brother’s case, why wait until now?
Is it a coincidence that this happens hours after the Senate finally got Pres. Obama’s Health Care Scheme passed through the Senate cloture vote and on its way to final ratification?
Could it be that the power structure in the county was waiting for the cloture vote so as to act from a position of political safety with no potential negative repercussions?
By the way, this is the same St. Louis County whose Prosecutor (Bob McCullough) helped form a "Truth Squad" in 2008 to help Obama's campaign by threatening to arrest anybody who "misled" about The Messiah. The same McCullough who has been less than exuberant in prosecuting the beatings. The same McCullough who is one of the longest serving political hacks in the St. Louis area. Coincidence?
If this isn't the epitome of the "Chicago Way" of politics, nothing is.

Ember the Excellent sent this BBC article along about the collapse of the Copenhagen Climate Manbearpig Fuck The Global Economy Up Forever Conference, and it is full of the standard issue Euroweenieism and whining one would expect from our betters across the pond. Now, that in and of itself would be par for the course and unremarkable, except for this bullet point:
2. THE US POLITICAL SYSTEM
Just about every other country involved in the UN talks has a single chain of command; when the president or prime minister speaks, he or she is able to make commitments for the entire government.
Not so the US. The president is not able to pledge anything that Congress will not support, and his inability to step up the US offer in Copenhagen was probably the single biggest impediment to other parties improving theirs.
Viewed internationally, the US effectively has two governments, each with power of veto over the other.
Doubtless the founding fathers had their reasons. But it makes the US a nation apart in these processes, often unable to state what its position is or to move that position - a nightmare for other countries' negotiators.
OK. My responsemore...

Surprisingly, Manbearpig is not the only fool who stands to profit from the steaming bag of jackholishness that is Cap & Trade and Carbon Offsets. This guy from the UN also stands to make a killing.
A story emerging out of Britain suggests "follow the money" may explain the enthusiasm of the United Nations to pursue caps on carbon emissions, despite doubts surfacing in the scientific community about the validity of the underlying global warming hypothesis.A Mumbai-based Indian multinational conglomerate with business ties to Rajendra K. Pachauri, the chairman since 2002 of the U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, or IPCC, stands to make several hundred million dollars in European Union carbon credits simply by closing a steel production facility in Britain with the loss of 1,700 jobs.
The Tata Group headquartered in Mumbai anticipates receiving windfall profits of up to nearly $2 billion from closing the Corus Redcar steelmaking plant in Britain, with about half of the savings expected to result from cashing in on carbon credits granted the steelmaker by the European Union under the EU's emissions trading scheme…
Corus has accumulated 7.5 million European Union surplus carbon allowances, or EUAs, given the company free by the EU, after corporate officials lobbied EU officials aggressively in Brussels.The Corus-owned 7.5 million EUAs are estimated at up to $650 million; the company also anticipates "saving" 6 million tons of carbon dioxide by closing the plant and not producing the plant's capacity of 3 million tons of steel. The 6 million tons of carbon dioxide is worth an estimated $130 million at current rates and possibly as much as $325 million at expected market levels.
You know, I am starting to wonder if all of this "Green" stuff really is more about fucking the developed countries for the benefit of a few assfisters in charge of the reins of power. Fuck this shit. Fuck it with the swinging fuck bag of fuckity fuck.
But that's just me.

Progress on the Senate floor ground to a halt this past week. Lawmakers did not vote on any healthcare amendments Wednesday, Thursday or Friday as Reid and Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) wrestled with each other to a stalemate in behind-the-scenes procedural disagreements.
“For a lot of people it looks fairly dim,” said Sen. Ben Nelson (D-Neb.), when asked about the chances of finishing the healthcare bill in the Senate by Christmas. “I don’t know what process the leader is going to use to try to move this forward.
“I know this is a situation where people are not anxious to hang around but there are folks who are threatening to delay it,” he added.
Sen. Roland Burris (D-Ill.) said he is optimistic but “not overly optimistic because there’s a lot of nuance and the ball keeps moving.”
Senate Republican leaders have come under heavy pressure from conservative groups and pundits such as Rush Limbaugh to use every parliamentary tactic they can to slow down the bill.
Sen. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.), who has frequently used procedural rules to slow down legislation this year, said he would force Democrats to file as many motions as possible to proceed to a final vote on the bill.
“I’ve heard calls from constituents and from around the country that Republicans should do everything they can to slow this down so I’m not going to give them any concessions on that,” he said.
Senate Democratic Whip Dick Durbin (Ill.) estimates that it would take six or seven days to vote on a series of motions to end the GOP filibuster.
“There are three cloture votes and if [Republicans] make us walk us through all the lapsed time between the votes that’s what we’ll need,” he said.
It would take that much time to bring about a final vote on the bill because of its complex structure.
Good. Drag this fucker out and then kill it. And fuck anybody who either votes for it or doesn't help to kill it. Fuck them with a declining standard of living up their swordfish ravaged goatses for killing the innovation and improvements that come along when the dickgobblins in Government stay out of the way. Fuck them for trying to push through legislation that will deny treatments to the elderly or people with markers that would or could lead to cancer. And fuck them for trying to limit the pharmaceutical and medical companies, who come up with the new devices, procedures, treatments and medicines that save lives.
So fuck you, Senators. Fuck you for even trying to push this bill. And fuck you forever come next year.

Chamber of Commerce CEO Tom Donohue is a wanted man -- at least according to the liberal activist group that's put a de facto bounty on his head.
A network of liberal groups known as Velvet Revolution started an ad campaign offering $200,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the man whose trade organization has become a thorn in the side of the Obama administration and congressional Democrats.
The group is not leveling any specific charges of criminal behavior. Rather, it is casting a wide net, fishing for any whistleblowers from Donohue's past who might come forward with allegations of wrongdoing. The campaign against the Chamber was launched in response to the group's opposition to climate change legislation and health care reform, and its plan to spend $100 million lobbying against these and other initiatives.
Um, does anybody else remember this? (Link goes to the lefty site "Common Dreams.")
"A chill wind is blowing in this nation. A message is being sent through the White House and its allies in talk radio and Clear Channel and Cooperstown. 'If you oppose this Administration there can and will be ramifications.' Every day the airwaves are filled with warnings, veiled and unveiled threats, spewed invective and hatred directed at any voice of dissent. And the public ... sit in mute opposition and in fear."
Yeah, it sure was awful when the Baseball Hall of Fame put out a bounty on rescinded an invitation to Tim Robbins. And when the Bu$hitler White House declared war against various media outlets, using various degrees of, um, veildness.
Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr! Sure is cold out there.

And what really fucking sucks is how sneaky this is. No treaty. No legislation. Just executive fiat.
