Today is a major celebration day in The Crawfish’s home state of Texas, but thanks to our crrrrappy public schools, most of our kids and young adults don’t even know about it. Today is San Jacinto Day, commemorating the victory of Sam Houston over Generalissimo Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna. That battle ended the Texas Revolutionary War.
The liberal media keeps on screaming about the Tea Party folks being on the verge of committing some major violence, even though they have not done anything of the sort. Contrast that with the liberals, who beat up a BLACK conservative protester in St. Louis, are at the heart of the violence in all of the violent WTO protests, and the beatdown (including a broken leg) of a FEMALE Bobby Jindal staffer outside Brennan’s Restaurant in N’awlins. The attack included political insults, and was committed as the staffer and her boyfriend were leaving a meeting of the Southern Republican Leadership Conference at the N’awlins landmark restaurant where Banana’s Foster was invented. The story shows how the leftists planned their protest and were ready for action.
The other major talking point is that the Tea Parties are made up of a bunch of redneck racists. One of the ways the pundits prove this point is to point out that, in the South, some rallies include some Confederate Battle Flags. Of course, anybody who supports the South or opposes Obama is obviously a racist, despite the fact that most Southerners who fought in the War of Northern Aggression were not slaveholders and really didn’t care about slavery. Some former slaves even fought for the South. The major reason for the secession of the CSA was that the federal government was starting to intrude upon the Constitutional rights of the Southern states. If you can’t win the debate on the facts, demonize your opponent. This is right out of the Alinsky playbook.
Arizona’s recent court battle over illegal immigration showed that the state is somewhat conservative. Now Arizona is setting themselves up for yet another court battle against anti-Constitutional liberals. The Arizona House has passed a bill that would require all candidates for the Presidency to prove that they are Constitutionally eligible for the office before their names will be allowed on the ballot in the state. In other words, if Barack Hussein Obama wants to run for re-election, he must produce the original birth certificate. Expect his legal team to keep this in the courts until at least January of 2016.
Are there any sane people left in the State of Noo Yawk? First you had a State Assemblyman trying to ban the use of all salt in restaurant cooking. Now another person in that legislative body is trying to ban high fructose corn syrup in the state. What will liberals try to ban next? Caramel coloring in sodas?
Charlie “George Hamilton Tan” Crist is proving that he has never been a true conservative nor a true Republican. He has decided to run for the Senate as an independent, since Marco Rubio is smoking him badly in the GOP primary race. Crist knows that this will cause the Democrat to be elected, but he hates conservatives more than he dislikes the far-left agenda of the Democrats.
The main reason for the crash of the financial markets a couple of years ago was the actions of Freddie and Fannie. Those two entities were the keystones of the subprime mortgage system, and were fully run and supported by big-name Democrats, including the person who put up the wall of separation between our intelligence agencies before 9-11, Jamie Gorelick. So what part of the whole reform packages that are either proposed or already being discussed in Congress have to do with fixing Freddie and Fannie? Yeah, right…you really think that Bawney Fwank, Countrywide Dodd, and John Kerry-Heinz are going to give up that honey hole?
The National Basketball Association, which used to be a professional league worth watching until they threw the entire rulebook out, is maintaining its spot as the professional league with the highest average player salary in the world. While the salary cap per team is dropping by $1,600,000.00, a smaller drop than expected in the current Obarecession, teams will still be able to spend $56,100,000.00 for their 12-man rosters next season, meaning player salaries will average $4,675,000.00. With a 12-man roster, the AVERAGE players are the first and second players coming off of the bench, and they are gonna average that much? Then again, that’s if the teams abide by the salary cap. The way the union has written the league rules, however, there are salary cap exemptions for almost every roster spot, so many teams will have their 12-man rosters getting paid well over $70,000,000.00.
The weirdbeards in Saudi Arabia are proving once again that Islam is all about the 7th century uneducated arab male mindset. The religious police have fired their commander for the “holy city” of Mecca because he had the temerity to say that men and women should be allowed to mingle freely. Since women are property of their husbands or their nearest male relative, this is completely unacceptable. In reality, the religion of the Pedophilic False Prophet is what is completely unacceptable.
The blatant lies from the White House continue, and The Crawfish ain’t buyin’ the line of bovine excrement being laid out by Ballerina Emanuel this time. This week, while the White House and the Dems on Crapitol Hill are pushing for major financial reform including controls over Wall Street, the Securities and Exchange Commission somehow decides to file charges against Goldman Sachs. Those of us who have been paying attention know that there is no such thing as a coincidence when the Obama Administration is involved, despite Rahmbo’s protestations.

"Freedom- no word was ever spoken that has held out greater hope, demanded greater sacrifice, needed to be nurtured, blessed more the giver, damned more its destroyers, or come closer to being God’s will on earth, and I think that’s worth fighting for if necessary." – General of the Army Omar N.
