Okay, gang. I had TONS of material ready for a weekend edition and even more standing by for this edition, but I got really bizzy. You see, Friday was the day that I took my kids to a NASCAR race, and this weekend was the opening weekend for Scarborough Faire, which is always part of our family’s schedule. Toss in taking a kid to dance lessons on Monday, and…ohcrap…MATERIAL OVERLOAD! I’m tossing this column together quickly, and dumping well over half of the links I had lined up, but it should still be enough to keep the comments flowing for the next few days. I would comment on Obama’s fiscal responsibility speech today, but I might have to do a whole column on that pile of bovine excrement.
The wonderfully ecological folks from Cuba can drill anywhere they want in the Gulf of Mexico, but His Majesty has decreed (even though the federal courts have said otherwise) that no such deep-water drilling shall be done by companies that need American permits. Which side is more susceptible to having spills? Which side will help us get over our dependence on arab oil? Which side is Obama on? Well, since he’s doing his best to piss off one of the biggest suppliers of oil, he must be on the side of whoever will stick it to the American people.
There were three constant themes in the debate leading up to the Boehner capitulation last Friday. The biggest theme from the Democrats was that the GOP wanted to kill women. This was because the GOP wanted to take federal funds away from Planned Parenthood, which Upchuck Schumer tried to say was a women’s health organization. (How many “health organizations” murder the equivalent of the entire city of Cincinnati in a single year?) Representative Slaughter (Dimwit-Noo Yawk) said that the incoming class of GOP Representatives are Nazis who want “to kill women”. Yes, there was puh-lenty more. Since the Hyde Amendment prohibits federal funding of abortions, how is any funding of this group legal, and why does a private organization need federal funds in the first place?
Another theme was that the GOP cuts were racist. This one was presented by Andrea Mitchell, once again pretending to be an unbiased reporter, Jesse the Racist saying that this was the Civil War all over again, and DC Delegate Norton who said the GOP’s efforts were like “bombing innocent civilians”. Of course, the real racists are those who support Planned Parenthood in their quest to kill as many black babies as possible. Even Ruthie-baby Ginsburg said that she thought Roe v. Wade was intended to rid us of “undesirables”.
Then we get to the Democrats supposedly being the ones who are fiscally responsible, with the GOP giving tax cuts for the rich being the only thing standing between America and a balanced budget. White House advisor David Ploufe laid this one on quite thick, but was an epic fail.
So what did the GOP get out of the budget negotiations? They claimed $38 billion in cost cutting, which means Boehner is a sellout, but it gets worse. Quite a bit of those “cuts” are just accounting gimmicks or cutting positions that were already vacant. The Congressional Budget Office goes so far as to say that the actual savings are a meager $352 million, or less than 10% of the tiny amount Boehner claimed as a victory. John Boehner needs to be relieved of his command.
Back to the liberal racists for a moment. I would comment heavily on this story, but I just don’t have the time, energy, or column space to do it properly. This one really takes the cake.
Obama’s friends in the media keep attacking Israel as much as possible, equivocating Hamas terror attacks on civilians with Israeli strikes on terrorists who happen to hide among civilians.
Here’s yet more information regarding the liberals who made big bucks while intentionally reporting false accounting data at Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae. It appears that the Democrats don’t even want to allow hearings into these organizations, which were among the leading factors in the housing/credit collapse of 2008, since it is their cronies who are about to be barbequed.
Our old friend Peppermint2 sent this one along. Geert Wilders is a hero in my book.
I was concerned when I saw this headline, but then I realized that it was the Ninth Circus Court of Appeals, so it will probably be reversed like the majority of their decisions.
ACORN has been found guilty yet again, but the Eric Holder Department of Injustice still refuses to investigate them. 2012 can’t come soon enough.
Holder’s ATF gun smuggling scandal just won’t go away. Some of his people might even go to prison. Let’s hope he is eventually one of ‘em. Hat tip to Buck.
Reader REC48 sent along this article, which compares the rhetoric of Obama and his fellow Democrats to that of Leon Trotsky’s 1934 speech “If America Should Go Communist”. By the way, Ann-Marie Murrell writes almost as good as she looks, which means she is a fantastic writer!
I’m not saying that Janet Incompetano’s not doing her job, but… Okay, yes I am, and yes I am again. The security of our nation cannot be this horrid unless it is by design.
The design is further shown by Obama’s CIA cutting back on interrogation of muslim terrorists. Yes, we have no need of any information that they might have.
Here we go again with a union persecuting real people. It’s all about the power. Heck, The Crawfish lives in a “right to work” state, but there is a union at my company. That union’s contract with the company mandates that all employees pay union dues even if they don’t wish to be part of the union.
The Democrats portray themselves as Robin Hoods, taking from the eeeeeevillll rich to serve the poor, but it doesn’t really work that way. In many cases, they have the roles reversed.
Why are control freak liberals always hypocritical when it comes to the behavior that they are trying to control?
Speaking of control freaks, look what we found in Obama’s hometown. Parents are not allowed to have any say in what their kids have for lunch at school. You’ve just gotta love the union power mindset.
James Earl Carter poked his head above water again, and reminded the world how much of an idiot he is. He said that religious leaders trample the rights of women, and that even Christian leaders condone the beating of women by their husbands. Will the 2nd worst President in American history like to back up that statement by naming a single religion other than Islam that condones wife beating? He can’t, because there isn’t one.
One of my liberal readers wanted to know more about the liberal indoctrination in our public schools. Well, Expat Yank, this one is for you. The 1% who are queer wag the dog.
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.
