Y’all had best be glad that I didn’t include every story that hacked me off this week. If I did, you’d still be reading this column next Wednesday!
In these tough times, Americans are cutting back and having to sacrifice. Then there’s The Chosen One and micHELLe Antoinette. They are the poster children for extravagance and excess. As I have said puh-lenty of times, he always wanted to be President, but he never wanted to BE President. They love the power, perks, and adulation, but avoid the responsibility and duty as much as humanly possible.
There are some other liberals who won’t sacrifice. I mentioned this a couple of weeks ago, but the city of Oakland had to lay off 10% of the police force, and now I know why. Take a look at the salaries and benefits given to those union stooges! Their ROOKIE salary is more than TRIPLE what a first-year enlisted military person makes, and over DOUBLE what a Noo Yawk City cop makes.
The Arrogant Incompetent (aka Press Secretary Gibbs) lost it again. This time he’s calling the LEFTIST critics of Obama “crazy” and saying they need to be drug tested. The Crawfish finds it difficult to believe that there are actually people to the left of Obama.
Five “Republicans” proved on Thursday that they are in actuality far-left liberals and oppose the Constitution of the United States. They all voted in favor of Elena Kagan for the position of Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States. Three of them were no surprise, as they have made it a habit to vote with the far-left: Olympia Snowe-job, Susan Collins, and Lindsey Grahamnesty. Also opposing the Constitution were Judd Gregg and Richardcranium Lugar. Gregg is retiring, thank God, but the other four need to be removed from office at the earliest possible moment.
The Governor of the Great State of Texas, Rick Perry, has told Washington “NO!” when they have tried to force Texas to accept money with lots of strings attached. The result is that the left wingnuts in Congress have attached language to a $10,000,000,000.00 education funding attachment to a war supplement bill that specifically puts Texas into a different category from the rest of the nation. Governor Perry has this reply to the schmucks in DC.
You really have to love it when the Democrats give the shaft to one of their core constituencies in order to please another one. In their great bailout of the teachers unions and government employee unions, the libs took $12,000,000,000.00 from America’s leeches and their food stamps. They are claiming that this is not a bailout of the unions, but since the money is directed to keeping teachers, cops, and firefighters (all unionized) on the job (remember that by the rules of almost every union, the people who would be laid off are the ones who are new to the job and actually work while the ones who have seniority or “tenure” can sit on their asses and do nothing all day and still get paid max wages).
Welcome to the “Recovery Summer” as proclaimed by Hussein and Gaffes. Does a net job loss of 131,000 jobs in July and a negative adjustment of 97,000 jobs in the May/June timeframe show economic growth and success for the so-called “stimulus”? This is the kind of “recovery” that causes Administration economic advisors to resign. If we can get some adults to run Congress and the White House instead of the clowns and children in there now, we might be able to turn it around eventually.
Since he assumed the throne in January of 2009, King Barak I has bailed out GM and Chrysler and turned GM over to the union thugs at the UAW (Note: The Crawfish is a card-carrying member of the UAW). So how do the leftists and Big Union look after the rank and file workers? They decide to build up a plant in Mexico for the next line of vehicles and engines. That is gonna really help out American workers, ain’t it.
There are times when you really have to wonder what the union leaders are thinking. The teachers union in Milwaukee is up in arms concerning one of their medical benefits that is no longer. The school budget in Milwaukee, just like most other public school systems, is so small that the students have to provide many of the classroom supplies. Many teachers are being laid off, and since this is a union the ones being let go will be those with the lowest seniority instead of those who are crappy teachers. So the union is making a demand for an unnecessary prescription drug that will cost the school district more than keeping 12 new teachers. Yep, unions really care about their members…wait…which members are we talking about?
The surrender to Islam is underway in the United States. A judge in Noo Joisey denied a Moroccan woman a restraining order against her ex-husband. The man has repeatedly raped his now-former wife, but Judge Joseph Charles ruled that he was just acting upon his muslim beliefs, so it was all well and good. No, “judge”, rape is rape and the perp needs to be sent to prison for a lengthy stay. This “judge” is, of course, a Democrat. He is a former member of the Noo Joisey General Assembly and the Noo Joisey Senate. He was appointed to the Noo Joisey Superior Court by Governor McGreevey, who himself was forced to resign from office when it was found out that his marriage to a woman was a sham and that he had a male lover (an Israeli) whom he appointed to the position of Noo Joisey Homeland Security Advisor.
It gets worse. The ACLU and the far-left Center for Constitutional Rights are teaming up to represent (on a pro bono basis) the father of an Al Qaeda recruiter who is linked to the attempted Christmas Day airline bombing in Detroit and with the Fort Hood massacre. The poor misunderstood lad is on a list of designated terrorists that some say is also a target list. Any American-based organization that gives aid and comfort to our enemies in wartime is committing treason, and every single board member of those two organizations should be arrested and charged with that treason, tried, convicted, and executed by firing squad the next day.
The hate-filled imam of the proposed Ground Zero Conquest Mosque has friends in high places, by that The Crawfish means the Oval Office and the SecState’s office. The State Department is sending him on a trip to the Middle East to recruit for Al Qaeda and to raise money for the conquest mosque. Okay, that’s not the OFFICIAL business of the trip, but it is what he is going to do. Oh, and this will all be paid for by you and me.
There are times when Democrats propose things that turn me into John McEnroe. The man who almost became President in the 2004 elections just provided one of those moments, proving once again that liberals are working for the downfall of our nation. Yes, let’s bring over a bunch of muslims who are in the prime age groups for Islamic terrorists, and let the “city planners” have access to the underground passageways of Noo Yawk City, so they can plant tons of C4 and semtex in relative cool temperatures and undisturbed by anyone. “You cannot be serious!”
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 United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion; and on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive (when the Legislature cannot be convened) against domestic violence.
-Constitution of the United States, Article IV, Section 4.
