Geez, DC thaws out and the nuts come out in full force.
“Applications of constitutional text and principles must be open to adaptation and change ... as the conditions and norms of our society become ever more distant from those of the Founding generation.” What liberal politician made that statement? Well, he’s not exactly a politician. That quote comes from the writings of Goodwin Liu, who President Obama has nominated for a spot on the 9th Circus Court. Did you really expect Obama to nominate someone who doesn’t wish to overturn the entire Constitution? The Constitution means exactly what it says, and all judges who oppose that meaning, and the politicians who nominate and vote to confirm them, are in dire need of deportation.
Once again, the Obama Administration proves that they are siding with the muslim world against Israel, by condemning the planning of more Israeli housing within Israel. Israel’s lands include the Golan Heights, the West Bank, and the Gaza Strip, so they can do whatever they want in those areas. If the so-called “Palestinians” don’t like it, they can move back to Jordan, where most of them came from in the first place. Does Iran condemn the building of more housing for Americans in San Diego because the Mexicans used to claim that land?
Muslim leaders in America are proving again that a person can be a muslim, or an American, but it is not permissible to be both.
How does a radical socialist with power say “screw you, I’m getting whatever I want no matter what happens to you”? The headline of this story will answer that question. For any “reconciliation” to happen, the House must first pass the Senate bill, which Obama will immediately sign into law. At that point, the Senate has no incentive to consider any “fixes” to the bill, because Reid got the whole Senate bill passed! Game over.
Rep. Bart Stupak (D-Meeeechigan) is either a complete moron or incredibly naïve. He actually believes that President Obama and Dingy Harry will write a fix into the “reconciliation” that will change the abortion language currently in the Senate bill. That bill mandates abortion coverage in all gummint or gummint-subsidized insurance plans, which means that taxpayer money will pay for abortions. I don’t know how many times I will need to say this, but there will be no “reconciliation”!
The Chosen One went to the northern suburbs of Filthadelphia on Monday to make another campaign rally-type pitch for Obamacare, during which he intentionally lied about the budget impact over the next decade. He flew Air Force One up to NAS JRB Willow Grove, where The Crawfish was recently stationed, for this little speech. Wouldn’t it have been a LOT cheaper to make his speech by teleconference? Doesn’t he know we’ve got a big budget deficit? He’s wasting hundreds of thousands of YOUR tax dollars just to be seen in Pennsylvania with Arlen S.P.E.C.T.R.E., who flew up with him. He’ll be wasting even more money to rally the people for Obamacare later this week.
The Completely Stoooopid Politician Quote of the Month goes to…drum roll please…Queen of the House Red Nanny P-Lousy, for this absolute beaut while talking about the Obamacare bill, “But we have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it, away from the fog of the controversy.” Yes, before you can find out what’s in the bill, you must pass the bill. Only in the “most ethical Congress in history” can that quote make sense. Queen Botox has lost her mind.
The Obama budget plan has been scored by the CBO, and it ain’t a pretty sight. The Socialist in Chief’s plans will increase our national debt by $9,800,000,000,000.00+ in just the next decade. The interest payments on this debt alone will be $800,000,000,000.00+ per year just down the road. Senator McConnell remarked, “in just four years the administration predicts the government will have to spend more just to pay interest on the federal debt than it spends on the Departments of Agriculture, Commerce, Education, Energy, Health and Human Services, HUD (Housing and Urban Development), Interior, Justice, Labor, State, Treasury, and the Corps of Engineers, Environment Protection Agency, GSA (General Services Administration), NASA, National Science Foundation, Small Business Administration and the Social Security Administration – combined.”
It’s funny enough for us when Democrats attack each other over their beliefs, but when a liberal attacks his own stances on the issues, you just have to sit back and enjoy it.
Do any of you out there like to go fishing, or have family members that enjoy fishing, or even watch the occasional fishing show on TV? If so, that’s just another reason to oppose the Obama Administration. They’re putting forth a proposal that might severely limit recreational fishing in American waters, including inland.
Ahhh… Ya gotta love those TOLERANT liberals. Hollyweird idjut Sean Penn, whose only quality roles have been when he has played a druggie (“Fast Times at Ridgemont High” and “The Falcon and the Snowman”), in other words when he has played himself, says that any journalist who calls his best friend Hugo the Red Chavez a “dictator” should go to prison. As for anybody who questions the humanitarian motives behind Chavez’s meager bit of aid to Haiti, Penn says “Do I hope that those people die screaming of rectal cancer? Yeah.”
The Dems are so concerned about the vote in the House that they have shoved a Democrat Representative out of the door. Representative Massa (D-Noo Yawk) says that the only reason anything has been brought forth to the Ethics Committee regarding him is because he was not going to vote for the Senate bill.
There was some good news over the weekend in the War of Islam vs. the World. An American-born Al Qaeda member was arrested by Pakistani forces. Now the question is: Will the Obama Administration try to get him extradited to the US, charge him with treason, and execute him 24 hours after conviction? That would be the proper thing to do and would capture the attention of the muslim world, who see us as weak in these matters.
If you didn’t think that giving the World Cup to South Afreaka this year was a bad idea before, try this on for size. One in every five adults there is HIV+, so the world needs to send a BILLION condoms there in preparation for World Cup 2010. How about just having the tournament in the civilized world instead? Just a thought.
Here we go again. The Chosen One has nominated a retired General to head the Transportation Security Agency. Okay, so far so good. The retired General is black. That doesn’t matter to me in the least. The retired General is a big proponent of “diversity”, even calling it a “requirement”. Now we’ve got problems. There’s too much emphasis on “diversity” in this nation. We celebrate the things that divide us, when we should promote the things that UNITE us! Calling for “diversity” means you want to promote minorities who are inferior in their job performance. Sorry, but as the old Ford commercial says, “Quality is Job One!” Hat tip to regular Claw contributor “Beachmom”.
Considering the politicians they’ve had over the past few decades, Noo Yawk could do a lot worse than electing this woman as their next Governor.
Every once in a while, a story comes along that deserves to be shared, and I simply don’t need to really comment on it. This is one of those stories.
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.
