No, I didn’t bother watching the “date night” State of the Union event. I wasn’t in the mood for a lot of lies from the Socialist in Chief.
The past week has been one of both joy and sorrow around Casa Crustacean. Our daughters each got a 5 week old dachshund puppy, Bella and Oreo. That was the good. Our eldest’s cat, which she got for Christmas when she was one, lost his fight with diabetes at age 11 and had to be put down. She made the final decision, and that is hard on a 12 year old.
Abortion, especially late-term or “partial-birth” abortion is back in the spotlight. A “doctor” in Filthadelphia has been revealed to have performed many grisly procedures over the past 27 or more years since his last inspection by the State of Pennsylvania. He’s being called a monster, and worse, for what he did. Meanwhile, the Democratic Party and their allies in the National Abortion Rights Action League, the National Organization of Women, and other left-wing extremist groups have been supporting exactly the same kinds of procedures this whole time. Barack Obama and other Democrat Senators have supported the procedures on the floor of the Senate. Obama even supported the procedures as a State Senator in Corruptionois, since a hospital run by Reverend Wright’s associates performed partial-birth abortions like the “doctor” in Philly. Can anybody explain how the left is so shocked, amazed, and disturbed by partial-birth abortions when they have been championing them for decades?
If Obamacare was such a good deal and soooooo absolutely necessary to keep all Americans from dying, then why are so many organizations that helped get it passed getting waivers so they don’t have to comply with it? Congressional Republicans were already investigating over 200 waivers, and now there are three that have really caught our eyes. Three chapters of the Service Employees International Union, the Obama-Soros Purple Shirt thugs from campaign season, are getting waivers, including the Chicago chapter.
Once again it is time for me to rant about the stooooopidity of those who run our court systems. The shooting in Tucson was caught on video, and was witnessed by many, including the people who tackled and captured the shooter. Will someone give a rational explanation of why experts are saying that it will take years for the case to get through the legal system? This case could be taken to a grand jury tomorrow and to a courtroom next week. He could, and should, be tried, convicted, sentenced to death, and the sentence carried out before July 4th. This is yet another example of why we need serious legal reform in our country. As for the shooter, he and his lawyer actually had the nads to plead NOT GUILTY on Monday. How does a judge even let someone who is caught in the act make such a plea? It defies all logic and reality.
A miracle has occurred in the courts of Corruptionois. The state appeals court has thrown Rahm Emanuel off of the ballot in the Chicago mayoral election. Everybody and their dog knows that Rahmbo did not live in the city for the past year, which is a requirement to be eligible for election, but Chicago Board of Election Commissioners and a Crook County judge had decided that it was in the mafia’s best intere….er, the best interest of the Democratic machine to….uh, best interest of the voters in the graveyards of Chi…..well, it was in THEIR best interest to allow Rahm to break the law and become Mayor. We all know how much the actual LAW is respected in that city and by all Democrats even remotely associated with Chicago.
Boy, am I glad that I will soon be a FORMER UAW member. The United Auto Workers union has just proved that they really don’t give a rat’s arse about American union members. For them it is all about power and money. The UAW, thanks to violations of federal bankruptcy laws engineered by the Obama Administration, has majority ownership of General Motors. GM, and the UAW, will spend $540,000,000+ to build facilities and start production of two new low-emission vehicles. “But Crawfish,” you say, “isn’t that going to bring in some new jobs?” Yes, it will. The problem is that the jobs will be in Central Mexico! Oh, and by the way…much of that money came from you and me in the form of federal bailouts.
The Crawfish thanks regular Claw contributor “Buck” for this article concerning the firing of the Commanding Officer of the aircraft carrier USS Enterprise (CVN-65) earlier this month. The author properly points out that the videos in question were simple buffoonery intended to keep up morale for a ship that has been at sea for quite a while, and that the officer’s misconduct pales in comparison to one William Jefferson Clinton’s misconduct. Clinton wasn’t just in command of a ship. He was in command of all of the armed forces and the whole nation, yet the Democrats, many of whom are happy with the ending of this Captain’s career, not only refused to relieve Billy Jeff of his command, they re-elected him! As a sidebar, note that the author also points out that our Navy is now smaller than it has been since 1916, yet SecDef Gates, POTUS Obama, and the rest of the liberals want to cut it back even farther.
Wow. A black man born in Africa, who is a longtime ACORN organizer, and is a thug who is well-schooled in the tactics of Saul Alinsky is taking over the Democratic Party. No, I’m NOT talking about Barack Obama, although every bit of that description fits him as well.
The Religion of Peace struck again, this time at the airport in Moscow. The suicide bomber killed at least 35 and wounded over 150 in his quest for the mythical 72 virgins promised by the Pedophilic False Prophet. Will CAIR come out and say that Islam is just misunderstood, and that this is a valid way of protesting?
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.”
