My Healthcare Message To The Left

As the Democrats seem bound and determined, electoral bloodbath be damned, to ram Obamacare through, I decided to offer one last message to them:



Yes, fuck you lefties. Fuck you for what you are trying to do to my family and my country. And may you never run into me if the shitty care you intend to impose upon us leads to ill events happening to the people I know and love.

Leave those kids alone

I hope these people aren't anywhere where the mad mullahs can get to them.

Via the Jawas who think it should be seen widely.

Any musician who thinks he's brave for standing up to fascist W should watch this and be ashamed.

Everybody Knows.....

Ace links to Rubio's fundraising "bomb" or something.
Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying don't give him money, but....

Ace quotes something from the link
While Marco enjoys a 14 point lead today, this race will certainly tighten up as Gov. Crist has a commanding cash advantage ($9 million raised to Rubio's to $3.4 million). That's why Marco's trip to California is so important to helping him raise the funds necessary to turn his lead into a victory.

It's the Holy Grail to politicos* that money=votes.

I don't know if that is a valid assumption anymore.
It used to be the only time anybody heard about a politician was when he was in a commercial. Most people didn't watch debates or really pay attention to politics until the weekend before the election.

Now?
Teh Peepul are angry so they're looking for information, it doesn't have to look for them.
There is suddenly a bad form of publicity in politics not involving dead hookers or live boys.


*No, not the lying blog that's hilariously trying to claim the name, the original use of the word.

Ahhh, the sweet smell of success.

You know, sometimes you work and you work and you just don't know if you're doing any good.

Other times, you see results. You realize you're not just pissing into the wind. Those are the good times.

Just 8 percent of Americans want the members of Congress re-elected, according to a CBS News-New York Times poll

Yes, CBS and the NY Times, probably even with their usual demographic tricks, found out that people are totally pissed off at the Democrat led gov't.

How cool would 100% turnover be?
Not because it would mean that Republicans would be the majority in the House and would at least gain seats in the Senate, but because of all the career pols sent home. Think of those members of the House who've been elected every two years for decades going home to K Street....errrr.... home.

Yeah, Puppy-blender link. So sue me.

Not just "No", but "Hell No!"

Yawn, another day another beltway-better saying, "What happened to the great, intelligent, Obama?"
Quote
How could such smart people do so many stupid things?

Because they weren't smart, you were willfully ignorant (which equates to functional stupidity).
Obama was never tested. Remember the one semi-difficult question?
Quoth Obama
I don't want you to waste your question.

Fuck you Captain America! (?)

Via the Jawas, we see this link to Right Wing News about Captain USO...errrr...Captain America.
Some blog nobody reads commented about how he's embarassed about the American flag.
Now? He's opining on how the Tea Parties are racist. A black superhero is thinking about infiltrating but...
Quote
"I don't exactly see a black man from Harlem fitting in with a bunch of angry white folks,

And no, Falcon is not talking about getting a job at CNN or MSNBC.
Quote from RWN
After this we find that the Captain's plan is to send the black man into a redneck bar to pretend to be a black man working for the IRS and to get everyone all mad

So, Captain America is NBC in disguise?
Double fuck you.

I never really was all that into comic books, I just read my brother's, but this pisses me off.
Next up, the Haunted Tank will listen to J.E.B. Stuart and start running down black folks outside tea party events.

Popcorn Stocks Through the Roof

Even with O'Keefe getting busted, Big Gov't managed to slap Minitru around again.
That's just funny.
They got too complacent and out of shape in the Bush years when he didn't fight back and they just can't learn. The warm cocoon of leftist thought makes learning difficult.
They think everybody is stupid but them, in other words, they know far too much to learn anything.
Forgot the h/t, same place you saw it, Ace's headlines.

Is our politicians learning?

Not just no but Hell No!
You saw the link, Shelby is "holding" all of Obama's nominees.
Not because they give "misleading" and more "misleading" testimony in their nomination hearings, or because they all seem to have a tax "forgetting" problem nor of course,because of the interesting choices like the union rep/labor board member, no, not because of all the ethical problems from what seems like each and every nominee, but because Shelby wants some of that sweet, sweet pork.
He's gumming up the works in a totally unrelated area in a particularly lame, but obviously totally legit, move to suckle at the public teat (I'm not talking about the merits of the deal, I don't care. It doesn't make any difference.)
It's funny how often I agree with idealistic lefties, you can do the right thing for the wrong reasons. I'm always in favor of gumming up the works of gov't but that's a lame reason and way to do it.

I wonder if he'll have a realistic, conservative challenger in his next primary.

Curiouser and Curiouser

The Saga of Treacher is getting curiouser and curiouser.

The State Dept's  attitude is pretty much, "Shut up and go away."
Now they're claiming a jogger collided with their SUV.
According to the link, he doesn't jog.

I'm not going to excerpt it, RTWT, it's.... interesting reading.
Edited for clarity.

Rahm meets Alinsky's 4th rule

The left demands rigid political correctness, well, they got rigid political correctness.  The Special Olympics is really making Rahm Emmanuel squirm.  Fun to watch, really.

America's Economy is De-Evolving

A couple months ago I posted an op-ed I had submitted to the Washington Post both here and as part of an Open Blog over at Ace's . In it I speculated that one of the things that will be necessary to rebuild the American economy is a resurgence of on shore manufacturing. I was pretty thoroughly shouted down at Ace's both by those who believed I was advocating a command economy and by those who believe that manufacturing in the US is dead.

Well I am happy to say I am not alone in thinking that a service economy is not sufficient to sustain American dominance.

That lack of an industrial base has put the American economy and worker in jeopardy, says distressed investor Lynn Tilton, CEO of Patriarch Partners. "The reality is, in recent times, every great empire has been built on a manufacturing economy," notes Tilton. "The fall of every empire has been the failure to remember that one fundamental fact."

Tilton's point is simple: the country cannot thrive as simply a service-based economy. As Tilton explains to Aaron and Henry in the accompanying clip, there isn't enough demand for services and those related jobs to keep the U.S. competitive on a global scale. We should also not over look the fact some people are better at building and making things then working on spreadsheets in a cubicle

 Now  I have to admit I'm not sure what empires she is referring to but she agrees with me so she must be a genius.

Could Another Conservative Conquest Happen In Obama's Home State?

Adam Andrzejewski (yeah, I copy and pasted his name) is running in the Republican Primary for Governor as a conservative against a guy who endorsed Obama. Andrzejeswki is not only unabashedly conservative, but he recently received an endorsement that rises to the "Holy Shit!" level by having Lech Walesa endorse him. And last time I checked, Chicago has a large Polish and Lithuanian population.

Internal Polling (FWIW) has Andrzejewski only down 2 points, so we will see what happens. But either way, this guy is making waves in a state that is otherwise tough sailing for non Democrats, and with what just transpired in Massachusetts, who knows what could happen?
