North Texas has gone from record highs to approaching record lows in less than a week. The cooler temperatures are most welcome, but the winds and continuing dry conditions haven’t been.
Before we get started, I am working on a Special Edition of The Claw. I have been invited to interview (via e-mail) Senatorial candidate and former Mayor of Dallas Tom Leppert. I invite my readers to tell me what questions they’d like me to ask him. Post them as comments or send them to me in an e-mail if you have one of my addresses.
A) This guy had one heckuva first experience riding in a plane.
B) Is government in America out of control? Do we really have the right to live as we wish? Check out this story and then answer those questions.
C) Jimmy Hoffa, who has never actually worked a day in his life, has some tough words for those who do not believe in Big Union. Hoffa has gotten all of his money and power by extorting dues from workers who have no choice but to join a union, something The Crawfish knows all about. So does he care about “workers”? Nope. He’s just in it for his own power. He’s out there declaring war on Republicans, and prepping his thugs for fighting, saying union thugs like a good fight and they need to “take these sons of bitches out!” This is, of course, the new “civility” from the Democratic Party. When asked about his remarks, Debbie the Ditz refused to answer and changed the subject to non-existent coarse language at Tea Party rallies. President Obama said he was proud of Hoffa, while his Propaganda Minister avoided the subject completely.
D) So why would Jimmy Hoffa be so far into the hip pocket of Barack Obama? Maybe because Obama has vowed to end the long-running federal oversight of the Teamsters and their rampant corruption. If the feds are removed from the Teamsters headquarters, the corruption levels will reach Jimmy Hoffa Senior standards within a month.
E) Michelle (***sigh***) Malkin gives us the Top Ten union thug moments of the past year, and Hoffa’s remarks made the list.
F) As long as we’re on the subject of union stupidity, the US Postal Service is on the verge of a complete shutdown because they can’t meet their costs. Labor costs eat up 80% of the USPS budget, compared to 53% at UPS (which hires TEAMSTER drivers only), and 32% at FedEx (NON-union). USPS employees have benefits packages among the absolute best in the federal government (not including Congress, POTUS, of VPOTUS). One of the possible solutions is to cut 20% of the bloated work force. The hitch in that plan is that the union has a clause in the latest labor contract forbidding ALL lay-offs, and they are opposing any breech in that contract. When the union bosses face a choice between 20% losing their jobs and 100% losing their jobs, they choose 100%, believing that Barack Obama and the Democrats will come to their rescue with yet more money from the great-grandchildren of our taxpayers.
G) Obama’s Labor Day speech was seen as a possible preview to his Thursday jobs speech. So how did the markets react to his speech. I wouldn’t exactly call that a success.
H) I saw this post somewhere on Facebook and had to steal it: Tea Party Protesters are R.A.C.I.S.T. - Real Americans Challenging Intrusive Socialistic Tactics.
I)It is almost funny and yet so sad to see how the Democrats live in some fantasy world devoid of reality. Debbie the Ditz is now saying that the so-called “stimulus” actually WORKED! It created 3.6 million jobs! It turned the economy around! Really? Somebody get that chick a drug test. Here’s a look at jobs lost in recessions over the past 40 years and jobs gained in the 24 months following them. Does that look like success, Debbie?
J) Her fellow space cadet, Maxine Waters, is calling for another trillion dollar jobs program. Heck, the last one worked so well that we might as well spend TEN trillion so we can make sure EVERYBODY has a job! That would work, right? So what if we’d never be able to pay for it even if we taxed every wage earner in America at 100%. Communism has NEVER worked and never will.
K) I saw this story on Neal Boortz’s site and knew it was right for my readers.
L) The Noo Yawk Slimes has officially endorsed Sharia Law in America, and even went so far as to say it is just like Jewish Law. When in the past 2000 years did Jewish Law include commandments that all non-believers must be converted, enslaved, or killed? What part of Jewish Law says that women are property and are to be treated as such? What part of Jewish Law commands that the world be conquered and entirely subjected to Islam?
M) We have now found out why Barack Obama defied Congress and continued the war in Libya despite the War Powers Act. It is all according to the master plan.
N) Another former camper at Club Gitmo has been found on the battlefields of Afghanistan. Why have we let any of these illegal combatants go free? They do not qualify for POW status according to the Geneva Conventions, and illegal combatants normally fall under the category of having no rights, including that of life. When we are done extracting information from them (by whatever means necessary), we should turn them into shark food.
O) Nearly 40% of Europeans suffer from mental illness. We in America call it socialistic liberalitis or societus moochus.
P) Can we get this law here in America? I know a bunch of folks who would like to see it the other way around.
Q) I don’t know how Eric Holder allowed this, but the FBI has arrested a prominent Democrat donor and campaign treasurer on mail fraud charges.
R) So how does a workers’ paradise function, with years of liberal control of the legislature and liberal governors? Well, California’s employment rate is now at record lows. I know…it must be the fault of the Republicans and George W. Bush.
S) One of the reporters who first broke the Gunrunner/Fast and Furious story says that the roadblocks being put up in front of the current Congressional investigations show the need for a second front. The House Foreign Affairs Committee has jurisdiction as well, and has members who would love to sink their teeth into this case. The cover-up on this scandal is making Watergate look tame.
T) Did you know that one person arrested in the Gunrunner program confessed to making IEDs from American military munitions and selling them to one of the Mexican cartels? Within hours of his arrest, the US Attorney’s Office in Arizona ordered him released within hours of his arrest. His whereabouts became unknown shortly thereafter.
U) Forty eight people were shot in Noo Yawk over the Labor Day holiday. Mayor Bloomberg blamed the Constitution for the violence. Typical left wing Democrat.
V) Why is it that Democrat Presidents like to give military-grade technology to China under the guise of non-military technology? Bill Clinton directed Loral Corporation, whose execs were big Clinton donors, to sell China satellite guidance technology. Before that happened, their ICBMs could not accurately target American cities and military installations. Now they have the ability to hit us precisely. Barack Obama has General Electric selling avionics technology to China. This will benefit Jeffrey Immelt, GE’s CEO, who happens to be not only a big Obama Donor, but Obama’s job creation advisor. Congress and the Pentagon are now investigating this mess.
