Wow. The Crawfish went to the Tarrant County sub-courthouse on Monday to renew his auto registration, but was thwarted in the attempt. You see, the County Tax Assessor offices are not open on weekends, when the citizens have the opportunity to visit without missing work, and close during the week at 4:30, also to preclude the majority of citizens from being able to get the jobs done. I got off early enough on Monday to swing by, but they were closed all day. They were observing the birthday of Cesar Chavez. What does a non-dryback who unionized non-drybacks in California have to do with Tarrant County, Texas?
Since when does a President have the Constitutional authority to change the terms of contracts between individuals and their lending institutions? Of course, no such authority comes from the Constitution, but since when do Democrats care about that moldy and flawed document written so long ago by a bunch of old white guys, some of whom owned slaves? The Obama Administration is going to ORDER banks to cut mortgage payments for people who are unemployed. While The Crawfish and his conservative brethren all wish that banks would work with those who are unemployed to keep them in their homes by deferring some payments or something of that sort, it is wrong for the federal government to step into the matter.
So what does Homeland Security Ditz Nappy have to say about this story of an Arizona rancher near the border being murdered by border crossers? Will she say that “the system worked” again? Will she and her boss say that this is yet another reason to have amnesty and open borders?
Obama’s new pick to head up Mediscare and Medicaid wants a “radical transfer of power” and believes health care in America is based on skin color. It would really be nice to see an appointment of someone who is sane to an Administration post.
In a new Rasmussen poll, 62% of main stream Americans say that the Tea Party movement is closer to their views on the issues, while 12% say Congress is closer. When the political class is asked the same question, the margin is 90% to 1% (yes, ONE percent) in favor of Congress. This is sounding more like the Soviet Union or France of the 1780s.
Michelle (***sigh***) Malkin is on semi-vacation, but she still delivers a strong column regarding the fake violence claims by the leftists and the history of actual violence by the left that has been blamed on the right. She also has another column on how the liberal media is going along with all of the leftist claims despite all evidence to the contrary, along with the history of Democrats opposing the legislation that the left now claims as some of their monumental victories. Like I’ve said many times over the past couple of weeks, stand by for a new “Reichstag Fire” incident that will be used as the catalyst for the leftists to initiate a severe crackdown on all dissent. That will eventually be followed by a new version of Krystallnacht, with conservatives playing the part of Jews in Hitler’s Germany.
The supposed threats by conservatives have been proven false time and again; with exactly zero conservatives being charged with any crimes. Compare that to the liberals, one of whom has been arrested and charged with threatening the lives of Republican Representative Eric Cantor and his family through a YouTube video. Fittingly, the man was from the City of Brudderly Hate. And there was also liberal radio host Brian Maloney calling Representative Boehner “Boner” (they really do love sexual terms, don’t they?) and calling for the deaths of Beck, Limbaugh, and O’Reilly. Representative McDermott even ranted on the House floor, calling those who dare to support the Constitution “teabaggers”. You keep classy, liberals!
Then there was the violence in and around the Tea Party event in Dingy Harry’s hometown of Searchlight, NV. The ones making the threats and throwing the eggs were...yep, Reid supporters.
Senate Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus (D-Montana, where men are men, women are men, and sheep are scared) has now admitted that one of the goals of Obamacare and the rest of the Democrat agenda is to address the “mal-distribution of wealth in America.” In other words, their agenda is...trumpet fanfare please...socialism!
Gaffes Biden doesn’t like the terminology “redistribution of wealth.” He prefers the other socialist terminology: “just being fair.” No matter what you call it, a cowpie is still a cowpie.
AT&T, John Deere, Caterpillar, Valero Energy, AK Steel, and a bunch of other American companies have announced that they will take major hits to their bottom lines because of the provisions of Obamacare. For having the sheer nerve to announce the truth, their leaders have been summoned by Nostrildamus himself to appear before Congress and explain their vile, capitalist ways. In the 50s, Tail Gunner Joe McCarthy was reviled by the left and the media (sorry for repeating myself) for his crusade against communists in our government and the film industry (all of his claims later proven correct when the records of the Soviet Union and KGB were opened after the fall of the USSR). Will Nostrildamus be reviled in public, or cheered on by the left wing extremists at See-BS, NBC, CNN, ABC, the Noo Yawk Slimes, the Washington Compost, the El Lay Slimes, etc.?
The eleven supposedly pro-choice Dim-ocrats who switched their votes to pass Obamacare are now officially requesting their bribe payments. They have asked for a combined $3,400,000,000.00+ in earmarks for services rendered. I hope none of you are surprised by such prostitution.
I got this e-mail from the Democrats and James Carville:
This is nuts. At a time when most of America is celebrating historic health care legislation that's been a century in the making, a few narrow-minded tea party nut jobs are trying to tarnish this great achievement.
But if you think these vile two-bit wing-nuts are just gonna slink back into whatever century they crawled out from now that health care reform is the law, think again.
The same uncorked tea party rage that we saw before the health care vote is now being used against the courageous House Democrats who stood strong and made it happen.
In fact, the slimy thugs at the Republican National Committee already raised $1,494,084 in their "Fire Nancy Pelosi" campaign. That's why I'm asking you to help my Democratic friends in the House by contributing to their Million Dollar Match campaign.
Contribute $5, $10 or more to support Speaker Pelosi and House Democrats before the critical March 31st FEC fundraising deadline and your contribution will be matched dollar-for-dollar by a group of committed Democrats.
This is the first FEC fundraising deadline since the House passed health care reform. And, Republicans and the media are watching closely to see whether we reach our million dollar goal.
We gotta take this fight right to those Republican special interests and right-wing extremists determined to bring back the failed policies of the past.
Contribute $5, $10 or more to support House Democrats before the critical March 31st FEC fundraising deadline and your contribution will be matched dollar-for-dollar by a group of committed Democrats.
We will not be intimidated by the lies, distortions and hate spewing venom from the mouths of Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, John Boehner and the other Republican gas bags. And, we're not about to back down in the face of the tidal wave of special interest cash pouring into the campaigns of our Republican opponents thanks to the radical decision by the Supreme Court.
The March 31st FEC deadline is a golden opportunity to demonstrate that Democrats are on the march. We already dealt those tea party crazies a big blow by putting health care reform into the history books. Now let's make it a double-punch by beating them on this big fundraising deadline.
P.S. Republicans failed to block health care reform. Now, they are unleashing millions of dollars of attack ads on House Democrats who voted for it. Stand with Speaker Pelosi and those courageous pro-health care Democrats. Contribute to support House Democrats before the critical March 31st FEC fundraising deadline and your contribution will be matched dollar-for-dollar by a group of committed Democrats.
Since when does “most of America” mean the same thing as “a small portion of America and all of the Democratic Party”?
The story of the “Christian militia” in Meeeeechigan is getting curiouser and curiouser. The initial reports were that they were about to attack muslims, which means Obama was just protecting his own when he ordered them arrested. A day later, the story changed to say that the group was about to try to kill a large number of police officers from around the nation by shooting one or two, then hitting their funeral processions (which are normally filled with cops from all over) with IEDs. If THAT story is true, then I agree with their arrests fully, but which story is real, and which one was put forth for political reasons?
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.
