I know, I know….I’m a day late in posting. Things are a bit nutso around Casa Crustacean, so I didn’t get around to it until today.
While this may be old news, it is good to run across a story about someone who does his best to honor his comrades in a meaningful way. As one who definitely appreciates the pipes, and who can easily lose it when the pipes play “Amazing Grace”, The Crawfish salutes Technical Sergeant Iain Morrison of the United States Air Force.
The “memorial service” in Tucson on Wednesday was almost as sickening as the Paul Wellstone Memorial Pep Rally held by the Democrats a couple of years back. The White House is saying that they were surprised at the applause from the crowd, even though they were asking for applause on the Jumbotron. They even had t-shirts made up and given out to the participants. Is “Together We Thrive” replacing “Hope and Change” as the new Obama campaign slogan? Well, maybe. You see, the Administration tried to say that it was the university that did the t-shirt handout, and that the Administration (and the Obama campaign team) had nothing to do with it, but thanks to Al Gore and his invention of the internet, we see that the Obamites were using that slogan on their campaign website as far back as February of 2008.
The whole address by The Chosen One was a call for more “civility” in our political dialogue. How did it go over? Well, less than a week later, the Democrats are comparing the Republicans to the Nazis. Why do they have such a hard time realizing that the National Socialist Workers Party was a socialist party, and therefore more kin to the Democrats than the GOP? I know, why let facts get in the way of rhetorical attacks.
Nutsy P-Lousy now says that the Tucson shootings were a “tragic accident.” Accident? Is that what they call it when a lefty goes berserk and starts shooting people? I guess the strategy of calling him a right-wing follower of Beck, Palin, Hannity, and Limbaugh isn’t panning out. Nancy Pelosi has become the official spokesperson for EPIC FAIL!
One of the victims of the shooting has been involuntarily committed to a mental health facility by the Pima County Sheriff’s Department. During a taping of an ABC town hall event, he took a photo of the local Tea Party spokesman and shouted at him “You’re dead!” The man had previously made public comments that Glenn Beck and Sarah Palin had gotten their “first victim” in the shooting. The man is obviously mentally “touched” and has Palin Derangement Syndrome, since he still blames the right for the actions of a man who has been repeatedly described as a “liberal pothead”.
So which side of the political coin really does engage in hate-filled rhetoric that calls for violence? Well, there’s this listing of death wishes against conservatives by media-types. Michelle (***sigh***) Malkin provides this primer of left-wing hate from 2000-2010. Do ya get the picture yet, lefties?
If not, Michelle has another fantastic column detailing how the left tries to pin EVERY big episode of violence in America on the eeeeeevillll right wing Constitution lovers, when in reality it is more often disgruntled leftists who are the culprits.
Then there are the Democrats who are using the Tucson shootings to attempt to defend Obamacare. Talk about grasping for straws in a desperate manner!
The Administration, like the good anti-American socialists they are, wants to slash defense spending to cure our budgetary problems, instead of cutting spending on entitlement programs that are unConstitutional. Ben Stein does not believe that this is the prudent thing to do.
The Canadian Broadcast Standards Council really does have nothing better to do than go searching for any possible outrage, no matter how old. They have now determined that the Dire Straits mega-hit “Money For Nothing” is extremely offensive, because it uses the word “faggot” three times, and thus must never again be played in its unedited form over Canuck radio waves. Uh, folks…the song was released in 1985 on the album “Brothers in Arms”, was one of the early huge hit videos on MTV, and has been played unedited for a quarter of a century with a grand total of about 4 complaints. In a meaningful salute to those dorks up north, The Crawfish will make sure that his iPod plays that album daily during my workdays over the next 2 weeks.
The people of Houston are idiots. What else can explain how Sheila Jackson Lee keeps getting re-elected by those people. Oh, I mean besides her skin color. The Blog Prof has a nice video of Sheila explaining how a repeal of Obamacare would be unConstitutional. How can the repeal of something that is completely unConstitutional be unConstitutional? Stand by to be amused at her ignorance.
Then there’s the people of Georgia, who keep re-electing John Lewis. That dolt says that the Preamble to the Constitution’s “pursuit of happiness” language makes the Obamacare REQUIREMENT that individuals purchase health insurance perfectly Constitutional, and so does the 14th Amendment’s “equal protection” clause. Affirmative Action worked for him!
How is this for an outrage. In Columbia, South Carolina, the NAACP (racist organization) ran the local Martin Luther King Junior Day celebration. To make sure it was a celebration of skin color instead of America, they concealed the statue of George Washington at their rally site. What would happen is a white organization covered up a statue of a black man at their rally?
Remember how, after the 2010 elections, Hawaii’s governor promised to produce the long-form birth certificate? Well, uh, about all they can find right now is notation that such a record was entered in the official records. FAIL!
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 national budget must be balanced. The public debt must be reduced; the arrogance of the authorities must be moderated and controlled. Payments to foreign governments must be reduced, if the nation doesn’t want to go bankrupt. People must again learn to work, instead of living on public assistance.”
