Congratulations to the Texas Rangers for pulling off the biggest choke job in Texas sports history. Forty seasons. Zero championships.
A) Once again, an anti-American atheist group is suing a high school because they dare to pray before football games. The atheists once again say that the school is violating the First Amendment’s “establishment clause”, but they obviously have never read said clause, for it reads: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof”. Since this is a school or school district making the decision to pray and not Congress making a law, the “establishment clause” is not applicable.
B) That story dovetails nicely with this one, as it involves education, religion, and stooooooopid objections. An investigation has begun by the DC Office on Human Rights (why in the *@#@%^ does a city have that kind of entity?) responding to a complaint against a private Roman Catholic university by muslim students who are offended by the Christian symbols in all of the rooms. That’s like going to a strip club and being offended by nudity. We already over-accommodate muslims in America. When they allow a Catholic cathedral in the center of Mecca, we’ll discuss making more allowances for them here.
C) Here’s more of that liberal “new civility” from line-reader Orlando Jones. I’m happy to say that I do not believe I have spent a single dollar on any of his movies, and I don’t think I ever will. If any white male conservative had done this, he would have been arrested and charged with making a death threat.
D) How in the world do you get an eeeeevillll former Enron trader (they were all Republicans, according to the Democrats and the media, but I repeat myself), who is a billionaire (so he must be a Republican since he is not Warren Buffet) from Texas (where there are no such things as white heterosexual males who are not Republicans) and heads up a group trying to convert all public employee pensions into 401(k) style investments (which hacks off all of the public sector unions) to head up and host a fundraiser for Democrats with the star of the show being none other than micHELLe Obama? This is putting a lot of Houston area Democrats in a big quandary.
E) HYPOCRISY ALERT! (as if the previous stories didn’t give you enough) California is slashing Medicare and Medicaid funding, meaning the poor will have less healthcare available to them. The Obama Administration is giving their blessing to these cutbacks. So here we have the most liberal state legislature in the nation, with perhaps the most liberal Governor in the nation, cutting spending for the poor with the permission of the most liberal President in history, and the media is mum. What are the reactions from the Democrats and the media (but I repeat myself) when Republicans even mention cuts to social programs?
F) While he’s out on the “I’m really doing government business, not campaigning on the taxpayer dime” campaign trail, Barack Obama is claiming that over 60% of his 2008 Hopey-Changey campaign promises have been fulfilled. As is the norm when dealing with statements by Barack Obama, he is lying. Then again, math is not his strong suit so he could have just been proving his ignorance of reality…again.
G) Speaking of facts and Obama’s lies, the richest Americans already pay more than their fair share. In fact, the United States has the most “progressive” taxes of all the major industrialized nations.
H) Barack Obama is giving a huge nod to the “occupiers” by putting forth Son of Son of Son of So-Called Stimulus. This time, he is going to be federalizing student loans and only making the folks who took out the loans only pay back the taxpayers a very small fraction of what they borrowed. The idea is to cap student loan repayment rates at 10 percent of a debtor’s income that goes above the poverty line, and then limiting the life of a loan to 20 years. If The Chosen One wants to do something about college affordability, he should attack the colleges and universities. Because they are so heavily subsidized and give full pay and tenure to professors who teach two classes per week, the cost of college education has risen 439% since 1982.
I) Here is a great story that exposes a big reason why our public education system is so poor. In a word, it is liberalism. Hat tip to my co-worker, Ed.
J) Hot Air has a daily feature called the Obamateurism of the Day. The one from Wednesday showed the insatiable ego and self-recognized superiority of the only President in history who is worse than Jimmy Carter.
K) Severe criminal conduct and the oppression of those who stand for the rule of law has been the hallmark of the Obama Administration, and many members of this cabal have been engaging in such behavior for years. This Thursday’s column by Michelle (***sigh***) Malkin spotlights another member of the LEAST transparent Administration in history and her less-than-legal actions in support of the great liberal gods of abortion. When will the Republican Party grow a set large enough to prosecute criminal actions by Democrat leaders?
L) The “supercommittee” was charged with reducing the deficit by $1.2 trillion over a decade. So why are the Democrats in that group trying to spend MORE in yet another so-called stimulus plan? Could it be that they wanted this group to fail so that draconian cuts can be made in national defense and they can blame Republicans for it?
M) Paul Ryan is going to be one of the greatest conservative politicians in modern history. Here he is once again absolutely schooling Barack Obama on divisive rhetoric and economic reality.
N) Get this! The White House is ordering a review of the loans to Solyndra and other “green” energy companies. Watch for this “review” to completely whitewash any mention of Obama donors and bundlers or any other political connections involved with the loans. Everything will get blamed on some junior junior staffer or the eeeevilll Republicans.
O) So who is out there helping to organize the “occupiers”, raise money (fraudulently it seems) for them, and further their efforts? Could it be Barack Obama’s old “community agitat…er, organizing” group ACORN? You bet it could. There are also other groups behind this junk, and their trail leads directly to people such as Mayor Bloomingidiotberg and the Community Organizer in Chief.
P) Kasim Reed, the Mayor of Atlanta, shut down the “occupiers” and retook Woodruff Park for the people of Atlanta. As Neal Boortz points out, the “occupiers” screech of “This is what democracy looks like” as they were being evicted from the park is actually making the point of the real people of America. In a true democracy, majority (or mobs) rule. In a nation/state/county/municipality with the rule of law, you get permits for large gatherings on public grounds. When the time limit on said permit has expired, you must get the *(#$%@ out!
Q) I must give a language warning for this story and the embedded video of the “occupier” known as “Conan the Occupier”. This spoiled rich kid is a professional student who is transitioning to teaching assistant at Columbia University. Evidently he is quite allergic to the real world, so he will spend his life in academia if possible.
R) “Occupiers” at the Phoenix protests are handing out fliers describing when it is okay to shoot a police officer. Did the mainstream media report any of this? Nope, but they sure opined that the Tea Party protests were full of violent anti-government rhetoric that could have lead to escalations, even though they could never show any such rhetoric on their mass volumes of video and audio of those protests.
S) Then there’s the Portland “occupiers”, who vandalized, urinated on, and danced on a war memorial. Yep, just like the Tea Party, right?
T) Congresscritters from both sides of the aisle are now seriously questioning Barry’s Great Ugandan Adventure, with some even pointing out how this resembles some of our early involvement in Vietnam.
U) It is always a good day when union leaders get arrested, as happened in Noo Yawk this week. Now of course we know that the charges must be local or state in nature, since The Affirmative Action Attorney General’s Injustice Department would never prosecute union thugs in the Era of The Won.
V) If this were to happen in a Republican administration, the media would be up in arms, but since it is the Obama Administration that is requesting the censorship of anti-government posts on You Tube, the media is strangely silent.
W) If any of you are still seriously considering Mitt Romney as a GOP nominee, you need to read this. Then again, I doubt if any of my regular readers are dim enough to support another Taxachusetts liberal flip-flopper.
X) I’ve posted it before, but this cartoon needs to be seen on a regular basis.
