Wow. One week from today is my Navy retirement ceremony. I’ve got 16 days left of calling myself an active duty Sailor.
Do we really want the government to be in charge of health care when a government agency that’s already under heavy scrutiny, the TSA, can’t even keep someone who is on a list of people who are not allowed to board commercial airliners in the United States because he has tuberculosis from flying from Filthadelphia to Than Franthithco aboard a US Airways jet? I’m just sayin’…
A friend of mine and I were having a discussion about the Obamacare legislation the other day, and we came up with an interesting theory. If Queen of the House Red Nanny P-Lousy succeeds in forcing the House to accept the Senate bill (the only way it can pass without having to get 60 Senators to vote AYE again), and some of the “blue dog” Dems go along with her threats, that will make those somewhat conservative Dems very vulnerable to defeat in the fall. She wants a solid majority of FAR-LEFT Congresscritters, so what better way to ditch the Dems she despises? If they vote AGAINST Obamacare, then she can support leftists to run against them in primary elections. It’s a win-win situation for Nanny!
It looks like the unions have forced the issue and made the Obamacare legislation even more unConstitutional. They signaled that they were displeased, and The Chosen One snapped to attention, called House and Senate lead donkeys to the White House, and forced them to give the unions an exemption from taxation on health insurance plans. Isn’t there something about equality under law in that Constitution thingy?
Pat Robertson does a really good job of making all evangelical Christians look like complete morons at times. When will someone finally pull the plug on him? Not every negative occurrence in the world is the result of God being angry at someone.
Bob Maistros of North Star National has the right take on the upcoming federal court fight in California over homosexual marriage. The comments show that he has spun up some of the heterophobes, which is always fun. Check out the comment by some guy called “The Crawfish”.
Ben Rhodes said, “I very much wanted to be a fiction writer.” He succeeded in writing some of the most amazing fiction put forth in the past few years. It was written so well that millions of people believed it to be truth. Rhodes is one of the top speechwriters for Barack Obama.
The White House was involved in more fiction billed as truth earlier this month. The First Fashion Disaster and her personal chef were part of a Food Network special Iron Chef America show that began with the four competing chefs and FLOTUS in her garden at the White House, picking vegetables to be used in the competition. None of the vegetables from the White House made it to Kitchen Stadium. Stunt veggies were used, and the switch was not revealed to the audience. Can the Obamas be truthful about ANYTHING?
The Administrations Anti-Semitism Czar criticized the Israeli Ambassador because he refused to attend a conference of a group that wants to end the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The fact that the group basically wants Israel to surrender to the demands of the muslims is completely lost upon this appointee of Sultan Bu’raq al Obama.
“If the goal was and the mission in Afghanistan was to go in because we believed that the Taliban was giving harbor to terrorists. We supported that. I supported that. They’re gone. They’re not there anymore.” That statement came from Taxachusetts AG Martha Coakley (Dim-ocrat) during the televised debate between the candidates in the special election for the United States Senate seat defiled by Teddythedrunk (D-Chappaquiddick). She actually says that there are no more terrorists in Afghanistan. Hey ditz, tell that to the eight CIA operatives who got blown up by an Islamic suicide bomber. Tell it to the family of Marine Lance Corporals Mark A. Juarez and Jacob A. Meinert, both of whom were killed in Afghanistan this past weekend. When Coakley was asked about this comment later by a reporter, she immediately asked the other reporters if anyone had a different question (about 45 seconds into the lower YouTube video on that page).
Martha the Lefty will surprise you in other ways as well. Well, maybe not since we know how liberals are and this is right up their alley, but she is opposed to nuns and actual serious Catholics working in Catholic hospitals because they believe that performing or counseling for abortions is a sin. She believes EVERY medical center in the US should be an abortion factory. Meanwhile, she kept a pedophile priest out of the public spotlight for seven years, enabling him to prey upon more children. She evidently adores men who sexually assault children, because when a cop raped a 23-MONTH-old girl with a hot curling iron, she investigated and suggested that he be released with no bail and on his own personal recognizance. Her successor in the DA job convicted the cop and sent him to prison for two consecutive life terms. So it comes down to a liberal Democrat from Taxachusetts who supports sexual assault and opposes the Catholic Church on abortion…and we thought Teddythedrunk (D-Chappaquiddick) was dead.
How good of a job has Coakley done at protecting the lawbreakers from law enforcement and upholding liberal values? The fact that ACORN has given her an A+ rating should answer the question fully. Hat tip to Kerry Picket of the Washington Times editorial page.
It really is amazing to see how much of a complete jerk Upchuck Schumer can be. Chuckie the Gun Grabber is doing his best to keep Scott Brown from defeating Coakley, including using this kind of perverted and foul language in a campaign e-mail, “her opponent is a far-right tea-bagger Republican.” Does he really believe that the people wouldn’t notice his use of that term?
Keith Olbermann, who is one of the worst sportscasters ever and even worse as a news reader/commentator, went over the edge even by his own standards by using the Haiti earthquake disaster to say how necessary Obamacare is. Puh-leeze.
It gets better. Whenever you let liberals interview each other and let them ramble on a subject, you’re bound to catch them spewing forth something that proves beyond any doubt that they are utter morons. Take Hollyweird actor Danny Glover, for example. The Hugo Chavez lover said that the Haiti earthquake was caused by Glo-Bull Warming and was the result of the Copenhagen conference being screwed up and concluding with no world-changing agreement. Will someone please let this science-challenged dude know that plate tectonics are not in any way related to temperatures.
The U.S. Commission on Civil Rights subpoenaed a lot of information from the Affirmative Action Attorney General’s Injustice Department regarding the department’s support of the New Black Panther Party’s voter intimidation efforts. Eric Holder’s people have now said that they will refuse to abide by the subpoenas because of executive orders, privacy laws, and attorney-client privilege. Is that an admission that the Black Panthers are legally represented by Holder’s people and that the White House ordered the charges to be dropped against them?
Okay, so the Supreme Court has verified that the Second Amendment guarantees the rights of individuals to keep and bear arms, but what if something superseded the Second Amendment? The Constitution’s Article VI states that any treaty that the government of the United States ratifies becomes the supreme law of the land. That means that any treaty ratified trumps our Constitution, including the Second Amendment. There are a number of groups out there, properly called “enemies, foreign and domestic”, including George Soros’ “Open Society”, Amnesty International, UNICEF, and governments of many nations including Britain, Japan, and Canada, who are working with the United Nations to bring about a treaty that would ban all private ownership of small arms. Take a look at this video when you have about ten minutes of spare time. Remember that one of the first things any dictatorial government does is to remove all weaponry from the citizens. Tip of The Crawfish’s hat goes to Poll Katz e-mailer “Bill”.
Dan Calabrese of North Star National is right on the money again. This time he’s not talkin’ politics, just the politics of discrimination and political correctness. When the Seattle Seahawks fired Jim Mora Jr. last week, they already had USC’s Pete Carroll in mind for the job. Discussions happened immediately, and by Saturday morning sources were saying that it was a “100% done deal” that Carroll was being hired by the Seachickens. Late that afternoon, the Seahags conducted a phone interview with Minnesota Vikings defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier, even though everybody in the world already knew who they were hiring. Why did they conduct the interview with Frazier? Because he’s black. The NFL has the “Rooney Rule”, which states that any team looking to fill a front office or head coaching position has to interview at least one minority before filling the position. The phone interview fulfilled the team’s obligation under the rule, but in reality it was an insult to Frazier and all other qualified minorities who get interviews just because of their skin color. Hopefully, Frazier will someday get a legitimate shot at a head coaching job, if that is what he wants. If he does, I guarantee that it will be because he’s the right guy for the job, not the right black guy for the job.
How in the world is The Prophet Algoracle going to explain this one? There has now been a death from hypothermia reported in Miami. We’re not talking about Miami, Ohio. That’s Miami, Florida.
Oh, and about those claims that the polar ice caps are melting at an alarming rate? Yeah…the truth is that the summer ice cap size has increased by 26% since 2007. Have you seen that info posted anywhere in the mainstream media?
His handlers have found one way to keep Tiger Woods away from his stable of blonde bimbos. Reportedly he is in a sex rehab clinic in South Africa, far from hot white blondes.
One of the key figures in the ClimateGate scandal is in the news again. Professor Mann of Penn State not only manipulated data, but is also one of the originators of the “hockey stick” graph that was used in The Prophet Algoracle’s movie. Guess who got a $500,000.00 grant from the “stimulus”?
Forum Moderator “Wildman” at www.AllMilitary.com posted this story from Sweden and I just had to bring it to my readers. I don’t even need to comment.
The Crawfish is a bit busy these days getting ready to move, looking for a job, prepping my retirement ceremony, getting everything done in order to retire from the military, etc. I will probably not post any columns during the final week of January and the first week of February as I deal with the movers here and when I get home to Texas. If the Cowboys do not knock Mrs. Crawfish’s Saints out of the playoffs (if they meet January 24th), I’ll be back in the 2nd week of February. If they do…(gulp)…The Crawfish might be gator food in the swamps of Louisiana.
If y’all come across any weird/stoooopid/strange news stories that might be fodder for The Weekly Claw or The Weekend Claw, e-mail them to me at CrawfishsClaw@yahoo.com and I’ll consider ‘em. Yes, I will give you newshounds credit.
“The Utopian schemes of leveling [re-distribution of the wealth] and a community of goods [central ownership of the means of production and distribution], are as visionary and impractical as those which vest all property in the Crown. [These ideas] are arbitrary, despotic, and, in our government, unconstitutional.”– Samuel Adams
