Is it Wednesday already? The Crawfish has been a rather bizzy bee, which has cut heavily into my news surfing time. That means you are blessed with a much shorter tome than usual.
A) Michael Moore-on has announced that he is boycotting the state of Georgia because Georgia executed a black man who was a cop killer. Georgia reacted by saying, “Thanks, we didn’t want your fat liberal arse here anyway!”
B) Rick Perry has been pilloried by the media and their allies in the Democratic Party, along with Mitt Romney, for his attacks on Social Security. That’s what happens when someone is 100% correct in exposing liberal demagoguery. You see, Texans showed the way in replacing Social Security with a better plan in the early 1980s, until the Democrats closed that door for good. It is time to reopen that door!
C) Every time Herman Cain opens his mouth or puts words on paper, I seem to like him more. His plan for real reform in the realm of taxation is the best of any politician out there with the sole exception of The Fair Tax. While I don’t believe straw polls are worth anything in reality, I hope his big victory in Florida gives his campaign a big boost.
D) Herman Cain wrote this article for Human Events back in 2006. If anything, it has become more relevant in the past five years.
E) One of the main plans that the Democrats had when Obama took office was to deeply slash our military capabilities. Even without the disabling cuts that the military budget would take if the “super-committee” fails to agree on a deficit reduction plan, the military budget would plummet to levels not seen since the 1930s in terms of a percentage of the overall budget. Take a look in this article at what kind of cuts we would face, and then realize that how much the Democrats hate our military and all it stands for.
F) Did you know that union violence in support of “legitimate union objectives” is not illegal? The Supremes of the early 70s even upheld that notion. It is well past time to change most of our laws regarding union activity.
G) The Chosen One has been trying out new campaign mantras recently, and one that he seems to like is blaming Congress for doing nothing, since the Blame-Bush thingy ain’t working anymore. If he really wants to go there, he needs to take a look at what Congress has done this year. The Harry Reid Senate has only recorded 137 votes, while the GOP House has made 711 votes, including over a dozen pro-growth bills that have gone nowhere in the Senate.
H) OMG! Obama, like, has been turned down by one of his, ya know, core constituency cable networks. MTV rejected his campaign’s overtures and actually stated it doesn’t do political work. Really? MTV has been one of the major media players in every Democratic Party campaign since the network started!
I) New unConstitutional regulations being put forth by the EPA seem to be a key to Obama’s “jobs program”, as they would require at least 230,000 bureaucrats and $21,000,000,000+ to administrate. Of course the cost to businesses would be much more. The EPA wants to implement these regulations under the Clean Air Act, which authorizes CONGRESS to make regulations, but not the EPA. Government jobs are the only ones the Obama Administration knows how to create or save.
J) How dead-in-the-water is Obama’s “Save My Job Bill”? Well, when you see that it has been introduced in the House and Senate “at the request of the President” and has a grand total of zero co-sponsors (combined House and Senate), I think that qualifies as a big ker-plop.
K) Every time someone claims that all of the Reagan and Bush tax cuts were only “for the rich”, just show them the graph in this article and ask them if they are ready to face reality instead of Democrat talking points.
L) Watch as Judge Judy tries, seemingly in vain, to get this societal leech to understand that he is misusing taxpayer money, and then she turns and nukes the plaintiff for being an idiot as well. Yes, we support this kind of stupidity with our hard earned dollars.
M) The Obama Administration continued their anti-Israel/pro-muslim terrorist policies this week as they called Israel’s approval of more housing for Israelis within Israel “counterproductive”. Jerusalem is 100% Israeli. The so-called “palestinians” have no legitimate claim to the Holy City, since their allies lost all of that territory when they tried to exterminate Israel.
