This week, The Crawfish’s home metropolis saw the end of a 40-day streak of 100+ degree temps, the return of the Dallas Cowboys to the field of Cowboys Stadium, and some actual water falling from the sky. Life is getting better.
A) The Crawfish doesn’t say things like this lightly, but Barack Obama is a scumbag. The families of 19 of the 30 Navy SEALs whose remains were returned to the US on Wednesday officially requested NO MEDIA COVERAGE, which includes photographers, at the “dignified transfer” ceremony at Dover Air Force Base. The official policy is that is any family members object to media coverage, it is forbidden. B. Hussein Obama turned the arrival of the caskets into a photo op for himself and his 2012 campaign, and had the White House Press Office distribute that photo to the media, while the White House web site posted it as their “Photo of the Day”. This is beyond disgusting.
B) The most recent Gallop poll shows that muslims are the group that approves of Barack Obama’s performance in the highest percentage, with 80% approval. I’m sure this will shock somebody, but probably not anybody who regularly reads my columns or who knows the reality of the Followers of the Pedophilic False Prophet. If he had really left that religion, they wouldn’t approve of him, but would be calling for his execution, since leaving Islam is the highest sin of that death cult. The fact that 65% of America’s Jews support Obama goes to show that America’s Jews are JINOs who hate Israel.
C) In a 2-1 ruling, the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals in Atlanta gave a partial blow to Obamacare. The ruling states that the individual mandate is unConstitutional, but that the rest of the law can stand (even though the individual mandate is the lynchpin of the whole system). This is big because it is the first time that a judge put on a court by a Democrat (Clinton) has ruled against Obama. Of course, the Super Committee would do well to consider repealing Obamacare in its entirety, since it will cost over a trillion in the next decade.
D) The ultra-liberal Contract for the American Dream has nothing to do with the traditional American Dream, as Neal Boortz so poignantly puts it. It is rather a dream of government control over every bit of life in our nation.
E) Meanwhile, a HARVARD study shows that the best way to get debt reduction is to cut spending and lower taxes. Yes, HARVARD has to admit that conservatism works and liberalism doesn’t.
F) There appears to be some shenanigans going on in a federal trial in Arizona. A man is on trial for making illegal firearms purchases including the guns that killed Border Patrol Agent Brian A. Terry. The US Attorney has denied the family’s request to be considered crime victims, a request that is routinely granted. The US Attorney, it seems, has a severe conflict of interest in the situation. His office was in charge of Operation Fast & Furious, and that is how the defendant got the weapons. He says that crime victim “is not any particular person, but society in general.” The family has already stated that they will be filing a wrongful death lawsuit against the government, so this US Attorney is trying to cover his butt and that of the Affirmative Action Attorney General.
G) I’m not sure if this is a fair comparison (to Putin), but it does explain a lot.
H) As if y’all need any more examples of the media being less than fair and impartial, it appears that the mainstream media is taking orders from and defending D!CK Durban. When a conservative reporter dared to ask D!CK a tough question, they had him thrown out of the press event. They also failed to report the confrontation, because D!CK said to them: “You guys aren’t going to cover this are you?”
I) Yes, the riots in England are made up of welfare mobs that are upset about their free ride possibly coming to an end. They might actually have to WORK for a living. Expect this same behavior in the USA when adults finally take over DC and cut off the unsustainable New Deal and Great Society programs. The Great Society was supposed to be part of a War on Poverty. Forty five years and trillions of dollars later, the poverty rate never changed. The only thing that changed is that there is now a permanent underclass that has no work ethic and a high moocher ethic. It has also destroyed the black family unit in our nation.
J) Dan Calabrese of The North Star National asks “Is America Going to Make It? Are You Sure?” As long as we have liberals in control, the issue is definitely in doubt.
K) All I can say about this column from American Spectator is…this is what I’ve been saying here for years!
L) No, I did not watch the GOP debate. I caught a few snippets online, but not enough to comment on anything except for one exchange. As much as I like Ron Paul on domestic and fiscal policy, he proved that he is a complete idiot on foreign policy. He has no problems with Iran developing nuclear weaponry and supporting terrorist groups like Hamas and Hezbollah. If those nukes get developed, the H groups will in turn detonate those nukes in Tel Aviv and Haifa. He said that sanctions always lead to war, but refuses to notice that Iran has been fighting us and Israel since the return of Khomeini. Iran supported and supplied most of the Iraqi insurgent groups that fought our people, even allowing the short, black diaperheaded mullah of the worst group to run the operation from Iran. Iran supports and supplies Al Qaida and the Taliban in Afghanistan. Paul even compared Iran to the USSR during the Cold War, and noted that we talked to the Soviets. Representative Paul, the Soviet Union was run by people with sanity, who did not believe in muslim martyrism, who did not repeatedly call for the annihilation of one of our allies like Iran has done with Israel! There is a HUGE difference!
M) The Post Office is losing $8 billion AGAIN this year, so layoffs and other cost-cutting measures are definitely needed. Of course, the unions are demanding that no layoffs happen and none of their benefits get touched. Since the union contracts have clauses stating that layoffs are forbidden unless Congress authorizes them, don’t expect the USPS to do anything other than lose billions more until the adults can take over Congress and the White House in January 2013.
N) Considering most of the women I’ve seen working at those establishments, do NOT expect me to ever order “extra sugar”!!
O) It really is astounding the lengths that the lamestream media will go to in order to prop up the Democratic Party. After their recall efforts failed in Wisconsin, the peacock’s people said it was “an amazing win for Democrats.” That’s like saying Super Bowl 45 was an amazing win for the Pittsburgh Steelers. True, the Green Bay Packers took home the Vince Lombardy Trophy, but it was an amazing win for Pittsburgh.
P) The Crawfish had to laugh at The Chosen One on Thursday. He had a speech in which he was telling Congress to get past their differences and send him a highway bill! The Blithering Idiot already got a huge highway bill. It was called…uh…lemme think…er…oh, yeah. It was called the STIMULUS BILL! Yes, it was to be filled with “shovel ready” construction and infrastructure jobs, wasn’t it?
Q) I’m not saying that the government is spying on us and is afraid of anybody who does NOT want to be dependent upon government, but that’s just because the government is doing such a good job of broadcasting those notions without my help. First they wanted citizens to send in e-mail reports about people who dared to oppose Obamacare, then they demanded that all gun shops anywhere near the border to report multiple gun sales, and now this. Outrageous! This is quite typical of how statist dictatorships build their power. Our good friend Gunny G has some comments of his own on this matter.
R) This is why we should outlaw malls. They just seem to bring out the most well-intentioned weirdoes.

“The Constitution on which our Union rests, shall be administered by me [as President] according to the safe and honest meaning contemplated by the plain understanding of the people of the United States at the time of its adoption – a meaning to be found in the explanations of those who advocated, not those who opposed it, and who opposed it merely lest the construction should be applied which they denounced as possible.” – Thomas Jefferson, letter to Mesrs. Eddy, Russel, Thurber, Wheaton, and Smith, 1801
