The Crawfish apologizes for the lateness of this column. It was a very busy week for me and my family, and I didn’t have as much computer “quality time” as I wanted.
For those of you who are wondering why I no longer have advertisements on my blogspot site, Google AdSense has declared that my site “poses a significant risk to our advertisers”, but they refuse to tell me what they have based this decision on. They have done this to a number of bloggers recently, most of whom were just short of the threshold of getting another check. I have not broken their terms of usage, so I don’t know what to tell y’all. It is just another way to screw a disabled veteran out of money for no apparent reason. Here’s more on how Google engages in censorship in order to maximize their own income.
Parents of girls, be aware. Do NOT let your girls join the Girl Scouts. Check out what is getting pushed on the girls in the Scouts by their organization and the United Nations.
Why does the Catholic Church not excommunicate someone who claims to be a Catholic, but supports abortion and calls for people to pray to Saint Joseph in support of a bill that supports abortion? Nancy Pelosi even notes that she regrets that her family is pro-life, so I guess she regrets that God is pro-life. What an idiot.
Why is it that celebrities who are married to beautiful women with great bodies can’t be satisfied with having those hotties in their beds and have to go off and cheat on ‘em? The big story of that nature recently has been Tiger Woods and his wife Elin, but now Jesse James has had an affair with a chick who is covered in tattoos (The Crawfish likes a few tats, but not complete body coverage) while his own bed was occupied by Sandra Bullock. Dude, are you stooooopid?
At least this Democrat is being somewhat honest.
Honesty is NOT part of the mainstream Democratic Party. They are touting how the CBO scored their bills to show a large deficit reduction, but that score was based on all sorts of predictions regarding the economy and tax revenue that are pipe dreams at best. They also left out the “Medicare fix” part of the bill, so they can put it in separately. The CBO says that if the “Medicare fix” is included, Obamacare goes into the red like we all know it will.
Let’s keep with this theme of honesty and Democrats for another paragraph or two. Last summer, Representative Joe Sestak was offered a high-ranking job, possibly Secretary of the Navy, by the Obama Administration if he would not run against Arlen S.P.E.C.T.R.E. in the Democrat Senatorial primary this year. Sestak admitted this numerous times to multiple media outlets. Now both the White House and Sestak refuse to comment on the matter, since it has been noted that any such offer would be a felony, and an impeachable offense for Barack Obama. Look for the Affirmative Action Attorney General’s Injustice Department to investigate the matter for 15 seconds before declaring it a non-issue.
House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer kept up the dishonesty throughout an interview with PBS’ Charlie Rose. He said Obamacare is “not a controversial item”, “we've had more town [hall] meetings and citizen input on this bill than any bill I've seen in the 30 years I've been in Congress”, “a relatively small group, particularly partisans, who have tried to inflame and incite the American public”. Let’s see…if there was no controversy, then why is the public so outraged and why is it taking so long for a solid Democrat majority in both houses of Congress to pass a bill? As for “town hall meetings and citizen input”, the vast majority of the people at the town hall events were there to tell your party to ditch the Obamacare bills, and well under half of the people polled support the bills. That’s real citizen input, Steny. Oh, and the majority of the American people is a “relatively small group”, eh?
The House voted 222-203 in favor of the Slaughter Rule on Thursday. This means that they will not actually vote on the Senate bill, but will “deem it to have passed” when they vote on their “reconciliation” bill. This means that the Senate bill will not have been passed per the rules set forth in the Constitution, which requires a recorded actual vote on every bill for it to pass in each chamber. This also means that there can be no “reconciliation”, since THAT rule requires the bill to have been passed by both chambers. The Democrats are now officially operating outside the boundaries of the Constitution, and they don’t care what anybody thinks about it. Now let’s see how fast this can get challenged in federal court.
Now this story begs for conservative commentary on a number of angles. We have an escaped murder from Panama who crosses our porous borders illegally, then acquires a false Social Security card and uses it to obtain federally subsidized housing, where he lives for over a year. First of all, it shows that the Obama Administration and the P-Lousy/Reid Congress still oppose doing anything about securing our borders. Secondly, according to the Social Security Act, Social Security cards and numbers are to be used for administering the Social Security program only. Any other usage (for identification, applying for other government benefits, for tax ID number, for credit reporting, etc.) are all ILLEGAL. Thirdly, why should a single penny of my taxes go to subsidize housing for anybody who is not physically or mentally disabled to the point of not being able to work at all? I still don’t see anything in the Constitution authorizing it.
Representative Alcee Hastings, the only impeached federal official ever to be elected to Congress has this to say about the process, “When the deal goes down, uh…all this talk about rules..uh, we make ‘em up as we go along.” In other words, “Screw the Constitution, we are Democrats!”
As long as impeachment is part of the discussion, there are a lot of folks out there calling for Obama’s impeachment if he signs the anti-Constitutional result of this weekend. There’s a slight problem. As of now, impeachment articles would never pass the House, so that must wait until at least January of 2013. Then again, this year’s Senate election cycle is highly unlikely to result in a GOP takeover of the Senate, because of the breakdown of the seats up for election. That means that articles of impeachment cannot be considered until at least January of 2013, and hopefully The Chosen One will be being replaced at that point anyway.
Many people, sadly this includes The Crawfish’s father, believe that the Senate Obamacare bill does NOT include federal funding of abortions. Thankfully, the Republicans, Congressman Stupak and his group of pro-life Democrats, and the US Conference of Catholic Bishops have actually read the bill and know that it does in fact force taxpayers to pay for abortions. The Catholic bishops support the socialistic “universal health care” plans, but will oppose any bill that includes taxpayer-funded abortions.
How do you improve the medical system in the United States? Well, according to the folks who support Obamacare, the answer is to create 159 new federal bureaucracies! What a crock of fecal matter.
Gaffes Biden thinks Israel slapped him across the face by having the unmitigated nerve to announce that they would build housing for Israelis within Israel, but a real slap came when Biden himself said “God rest her soul” when talking about the Irish Prime Minister’s mother as he introduced the PM at a White House Saint Patrick’s Day event. Unfortunately for Biden, the PM’s mother is very much alive.
Continuing the theme of Biden the Dunce, we have an interview that is full of brain-dead statements, including one that the Obamacare vote will help the Democrats in the fall elections. Yes, voting against the will of the American people and doing it in a way that voids the Constitution is a GOOD thing for Democrat candidates. He must live in Bizarro World.
Joe Biden also declared that if Obamacare passes “you know we’re going to control the insurance companies.” I still haven’t found any language in the Constitution that allows the federal government to control any privately held companies.
Recently we brought y’all word of the Obama Administration banning all new offshore drilling by American companies. Last year, the Chinese government made a deal with the Cubans to start drilling in Cuban waters, closer to the US coast than our own companies can drill. Well, another of our antagonists is joining in on the drilling spree...the Soviet Unio...er...Russia. Way to go, Barry!
Recently, the Affirmative Action Attorney General’s admission that not only did HE work for a law firm that represented and supported terrorists, but that he had hired a number of lawyers who represented or supported terrorists to work at the Injustice Department hit the news wires. In response to those stories, Eric Holder now calls lawyers who represent terrorists “patriots”.
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.
