No, I did not watch the Washington Post GOP debate last night. I had better things to do…like work.
A) What is it about the power-mad control freaks of the left, especially in Europe? New EU safety rules now prohibit children from blowing on noisemakers and blowing up balloons. Since when are simple children’s toys such a severe threat to the entirety of a continent? This is the same cradle-to-grave nanny state mentality that the left wants to impose on us in the United States.
B) If this photo does not completely hack you off, you must be a Democrat. Then there is this one, which also shows the mindset of these “people” in the “occupy” protests. They are also calling for people to “kill the cops” among other things. Yes, these are the people that Nancy Pelosi praises, but about the Tea Party she said: “I have concerns about some of the language that is being used because I saw this myself in the late 70s in San Francisco, this kind of rhetoric. … It created a climate in which violence took place. … I wish we would all curb our enthusiasm in some of the statements and understand that some of the ears that it is falling on are not a balanced as the person making the statements may assume.”
C) The “occupy” movement tried to have a big rally in Fort Worth, but the crowd was quite small and completely unorganized. Check out the photo gallery from our local newspaper. Do any of these people really have a clue?
D) Aaron Goldstein delivers some advice from his grandfather to the “occupiers” out there. The message is completely timeless, but is probably not comprehendible to all those with graduate degrees in Women’s Studies or Parks & Recreation. David P. McGinley adds that there is a nation in which most of the demands of the “occupiers” have already been met, so why don’t they move there?
E) As if we needed any more reminders that Mitt Romney is an unacceptable liberal, he received the endorsement of Chris Christie on Tuesday. RINOs of a feather...
F) Here’s something about the Congressional Budget Office’s scoring of legislation that I didn’t know. When it comes to examining tax changes, the CBO must use static scoring, which does not take into effect what the reactions are to any tax increases or decreases. In other words, their scores are only correct if business practices, investment strategies, and personal spending remain the same after a tax change. In other words, this model significantly favors tax increases and says tax reductions will always lower revenue, when history has proven the opposite.
G) According to the official definition of a recession, the current one ended in June 2009. So how come household income has fallen more in the two years since the recession ended than it did during the recession? Sounds like the definition of a recession is a bit imprecise.
H) I keep telling y’all that these consequences were all part of the Democrats’ plan when they conned Boehner in that “debt deal” earlier this year. They have been looking for the opportunity to eviscerate our Armed Forces since they took over the House and Senate in 2006. Now they have the chance to do it without political fallout, since they will be able to blame the eeeevilll GOP half of the “super committee” for not agreeing to everything THEY wanted. (Democrat definition of bipartisanship: when the GOP caves in to every one of our demands and we give them absolutely nothing)
I) The Affirmative Action Attorney General and some of his minions at the Department of Injustice (or is it Department of Social Justice?) announced that they have foiled a major terrorist plot involving the assassination of the Saudi Ambassador to the United States and the bombing of the Israeli and Saudi Arabian embassies in DC. Is this for real, or is it just an act to make Holder’s bunch look competent and honest in the midst of the Fast and Furious/Gunrunner/Gunwalker/Castaway scandals?
J) Speaking of Saudi Arabia, they have once again shown that Islam practices tolerance about as well as the Democratic Party.
K) All I can say about this story is that the constant rain/light rain/drizzle associated with Seattle tends to rust the brains of that noted left-wing city’s residents.
L) Then again, there’s Canada, where brains get frostbite instead of rusting. Check out this reporterette in Calgary, who says gold is backed by nothing, while the dollar is backed by the US government.
