Film review time, folks. “The Hurt Locker” gets a solid thumbs up, but it is NOT a flick for everyone. It is intense, and the characters are well developed. Bomb disposal is a job that calls for extreme bravery, steady nerves, and a huge set of brass ones. It can also drive even the best over the edge. How they do it is beyond me. Say a prayer for those guys, and if you ever meet one buy him a beer.
Has any American President ever disrespected one of our allies like Obama has done to the Prime Minister of Israel? This time, Obama walked out of a meeting with Netanyahu because the Israelis refuse to give The One a written statement promising to never build another bit of housing for Israelis within the West Bank. He got up and walked out to have a private dinner and said to call him if Israel has anything new on the issue. Netanyahu should publicly state that he will not deal with Obama until he shows his original birth certificate to prove that he is legally the President.
The CBO has a habit of underestimating true spending in programs and budgets, but even they say that Obama’s projected 10-year budget deficit is over $1,200,000,000,000.00 too low, and that Obama will raise the national debt to over 90% of our annual GDP in that decade. His mission to destroy our nation is succeeding.
The Golden Dumb-Bass of the Year Award goes to Bart Stupak of Meeeeeechigan, and not just for voting for the Senate Obamacare bill while believing in an Executive Order that can overrule the law, that the Senate will take up a mythical “reconciliation” when they got the bill they wanted passed, and the Tooth Fairy. He also gets the award for saying this, “Planned Parenthood does not do abortions…in my district. Planned Parenthood has a number of clinics in my district that provide health care for my people. Therefore, these clinics do quite well in my district, and I’m all for health care and extending it to everybody--access to health care, so that’s just another way.” Planned Parenthood is not in the health care business. They are in the abortion business, and do it wherever they have offices.
Congresscritter John Dingel thinks the Obamacare legislation will only cover “300 people”, but that’s not the real news. He admits that the eventual goal is to “control the people.”
You know that the Obamacare legislation is horrid if it is endorsed by Fidel Castro.
Senator and Doctor Tom Coburn offered an amendment to the Obamacare bill in the Senate. All but one Democrat voted against the amendment. That means that the Democrats, with the sole exception of Evan Bayh, support giving Viagra and other erectile dysfunction drugs to sex offenders and having the federal government pay for abortion pills such as RU-486.
This story doesn’t apply to just Barack Obama, but rather to all Democrat Presidents, and their liberal allies in Congress and the Courts, for at least the past 100 years. Yes, I include non-conservative Republicans such as the Bushes in there as well.
So what else do the socialists want to steal from you? Well, the Obama Administration and the SEIU union thugs now want to take away your private retirement accounts and put the money of ALL Americans into a single government-managed retirement plan. Don’t we already have something like that? I do believe we have it and that it is financially insolvent. It’s called Social Security.
The arabs of Than Franthithco are miffed at the Police Chief. He had the unmitigated gall to notice that muslims are terrorists and vice versa.
Complete ignorance of what the Constitution actually says and support of illegal immigration are character traits found in many judges, not just those appointed by Democrats. U.S. District Court Judge Jane Boyle, appointed by noted friend of non-drybacks George W. Bush, has struck down a city ordinance that bans landlords in Farmers Branch, TX, from renting properties to any person who cannot show that they are in the country legally. She declared that such an ordinance is “an attempt to enforce U.S. immigration laws” which can only be done by federal officials. First of all, it is not enforcement of immigration laws. It is a city housing ordinance, and there is no mention in the Constitution about the federal government having purview over local housing laws, which means that the 10th Amendment overrules this judge. Secondly, if the locals authorities can’t have anything to do with federal laws, then the feds cannot have anything to do with local laws. Bank robbery and kidnapping are state laws, but are investigated by the FBI.
IT’S ABOUT TIME! It appears that the Noo Yawk Port Authority and developers have finally got their stuff in one sock and are going to start rebuilding on Ground Zero.
“Ginny” of the Poll Katz gets credit for this one. Folks, even The Crawfish can’t make this kinda story up. As Ron White said, “you can’t fix stupid!”
The leftists are up in arms because of some threats to Congresscritters over their usage of the Constitution as toilet paper. There are even calls for arrests. Funny, but where were those folks when the calls for W to be killed were going on from 2001-2009? The Crawfish believes that some of the threats are actually being committed by leftists in order to make it look like the conservatives are deranged and dangerous. There will probably be some kind of staged violence which will be all Barack Obama needs to suspend the Constitution for our own good while arresting every known strong conservative and confiscating all privately owned firearms. Check your history books for the Reichstag Fire and Kristallnacht.
Some folks have just gotta stop looking to be offended by every comment. A black Republican candidate for Congress said “Listen up, Buckwheat!” when referring to The Chosen One, and the leftists and blacks in his area are going haywire. Just like him, The Crawfish has used the name “Buckwheat” over the years to denote someone who ain’t exactly playin’ it smart. It is NOT a raaaaaaacist comment!
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 instrument by which it [government] must act are either the AUTHORITY of the laws or FORCE. If the first be destroyed, the last must be substituted; and where this becomes the ordinary instrument of government there is an end to liberty!" - Alexander Hamilton (quote courtesy of fellow blogger “Saltwater”)
