The Call of the RINO in Virginia and Mississippi

Stop feeding RINOsIt would be a lot easier for conservatives to tolerate the sanctimony of Republicans In Name Only (RINOs) if they weren’t so hypocritical — or in the case of Mississippi RINOs — despicably hypocritical.

‘Moderate’ Republicans never tire of telling us conservative extremists how they are inclusive and ready to reach across the aisle to get things done. While we are exclusive and alienate and people that disagree with us.

Well the Sen. Thad Cochran campaign got things done in Mississippi all right and in the process of building their ‘big tent’ party the RINOs turned race–baiting 180 degrees.

Formerly in Mississippi and other states where Jim Crow was president of the chamber of commerce, unscrupulous white bigots used the threat of black voting, lawlessness, sexual potency, you–name–it to frighten other bigots into voting against the opposition. Typically this was another Democrat that only had one parent in the Klan, as opposed to the baiter who had two.

The lurid overt and covert campaigns wielded scurrilous attacks in the primary because in the South at that time the general election didn’t count. Republicans were as scarce as black members of the Sons of the Confederacy.

This year in a new low for even bottom feeders, the RINOs in the Cochran campaign used race–baiting to scare blacks into voting against Cochran’s conservative white opponent. In the process smearing State Sen. Chris McDaniel with all the mainstream media and leftist TEA Party slanders.

None of it was true, but accuracy was beside the point when crony capitalists, lobbyists and an entitled Senate staff were working to keep their access to the government trough.

The sleazy campaign hired sleazy consultants and then denied involvement with the product. The Cochran group — lead by lobbyist Haley Barbour and his nephew Henry Barbour —denied knowing anything about the content of the robo–calls or radio ads. The nephew told The Daily Caller, “She (a discredited black consultant forced to resign from the mayor of Atlanta’s staff for filing false financial reports) and I talked message for calls, but I never heard them.”

As lies go this isn’t even as good as an Obama lie.

I’ve worked in campaigns for over 30 years and I assure you that when a campaign pays for a product, they approve it before it goes on the air. Heck, campaigns argue about yard signs for days, so you can imagine the discussion around radio advertising.

So at least Barbour knew, but I’m not so sure Cochran did. Coordination between an ‘independent’ expenditure and the campaign is illegal and even if it wasn’t, Thad occasionally has difficulty distinguishing between the days of the week.

The ads specifically warned black voters that McDaniel had a “racist agenda” and that blacks “could lose food stamps, housing assistance, early breakfast, free lunch” and all the other handout programs. The ads concluded with the ominous, “We’ve come this far, we can’t go back now!”

Say to the time when Mississippi was run by white bigots who were Democrats.

This combination of pandering and lying is actually worse than the old–fashioned race baiting, because then, after the election, the race–baiting winner was going to vote the way the bigots wanted. In fact the loser in the primary probably would have voted the way the bigots wanted.

Which lent the practice an air of twisted integrity. But the herd of RINOs, Barbour & Barbour, backing the longtime and frequently out­–of–touch incumbent Cochran will do no such thing. If the primary result stands, Cochran will go back to voting the same way that earned him a zero civil rights rating from the ACLU.

Giving ‘credit’ where ‘credit’ is due, the Cochran victory was remarkable. Typically when a long–time incumbent is forced into a runoff, he loses. Cochran trailed in the first vote by 2,000 votes and then won the runoff by 7,000 votes. The difference being the McDaniel campaign spent the runoff turning out it’s base and the Cochran campaign spent its time turning out Obama’s base.

But there is no guarantee the Cochran ‘victory’ will stand.

Mississippi law says anyone can vote in the Republican runoff as long as they did not vote in the earlier Democrat primary. If they did, those votes are illegal. McDaniel campaign representatives have already begun checking names and claim that thousands of Cochran votes came from voters that had already voted in the Democrat primary.

Meanwhile back in Virginia, those inclusive RINOs in the Cantor organization are busy making sure the Dave Brat campaign won’t have the use of the hundreds of thousands of dollars that until last week were sitting in the 7th District Republican Committee.

Eric Cantor — either ambitious or too–big–for–his–britches, take your choice — had turned the committee into an influence–peddling machine. He raised almost $400,000 for the committee so he could contribute campaign funds to other Virginia candidates and build up a bank of political chits he could call in later.

This money was in addition to any leadership PACs and his own federal campaign account that he used to buy influence with his fellow members of Congress. Of course a funny thing happened to Cantor on the way to being Speaker of the House or governor of Virginia.

He lost a primary to Dave Brat. So instead of healing the wounds and uniting for victory in November, Cantor had his lackeys on the committee give the money away in a breath–taking display of spite and poor losership.

Brat’s plan initially was to use a bit over half of the money for a grassroots get–out–the–vote effort with a dozen staffers who would supervise telephone call centers and a direct mail campaign.

Instead the RINOs charged in and gave $150,000 to the Republican National Committee, $150,000 to the National Republican Congressional Committee, $5,000 to Ed Gillespie’s campaign for US Senate, $25,000 to a GOP state senate candidate and $13,000 to the VA GOP. And oh yes, they left a $10 gift card to Ace Hardware in the deposit box so Brat could buy a bucket to soak his head.

Once the deed was done, the lying could begin.

Cantor’s consultant assured the media the best way to insure the money will come back to the 7th district is to send it off to Washington, as opposed to leaving the money in the local bank account where is already was. Possibly he thought the money would gain momentum as it traveled through the banking system and return to Virginia with the impact of an asteroid.

But I’ll tell you what will happen. Most of the money will go anywhere but Virginia. These committees are run by 24–year–old masters of the universe that let polling do their thinking. Brat’s seat is a safe seat, so he won’t get a dime. The money will go to other House races in other states.

If Gillespie polls well, he could get some of the 150K back, minus a few miscellaneous handling fees, but that’s a big if. What is not in doubt is that Dave Brat won’t have a GOTV operation unless he raises the money for it himself.

So who are the fanatics now? The TEA party–backed candidates who worked hard and turned out conservatives or the RINOs who use sleaze and spite to get their way?

Eric Cantor Picked the Wrong Base

Speaker John Boehner is among those mystified by Eric Cantor's loss.

Speaker John Boehner is among those mystified by Eric Cantor’s loss.

It’s no mystery why Eric Cantor lost his primary last Tuesday. He simply failed to turn out his new Hispanic base. And Cantor is not completely to blame for this failure, because events outside his control were also working against him.

On the day of the vote many members of his new voting block, Futuro Ciudadnos for Cantor couldn’t votar because they were waiting outside the local bus stations and airports to be reunited with younger members of their extended family. It’s really a shame Cantor lost because footage of these tearful reunions would have made great feel–good television spots in November, as long as the crew made sure no weeping taxpayers could be seen in the back of the frame.

[CULTURAL SENSITIVITY NOTE REGARDING OUR NEW NEIGHBORS: When Gringos send their unaccompanied minors to visit the ex, they complicate the process with needless rules and bureaucracy. On United Airlines — my carrier of choice — parents pay a fee of $150 each way for an unaccompanied minor, on top of what the airfare cost. The parent or guardian is required to arrive early at the airport, with photo identification and contact information and the same info regarding the person meeting little Belgium at his destination.

The child gets an I.D. badge and experiences the tender mercies of the TSA, which may include being felt up. When boarding the plane, flight attendants greet him personally, escort him to his seat and buckle him in. At the destination a United employee meets your child and escorts him to the arrivals area where the identification of the ex is checked closely to make sure there is an exact match with the data supplied before the child boarded.

Once the paperwork is complete, Belgium is handed over.

Futuro cuidadnos in need of an anchor adolescent have a much simpler system. First of all it’s a one-way trip. Jesusito — who can be a son, cousin, uncle, nephew, foster child, drinking buddy or fellow gang member — is tossed on the nearest autobus heading for El Norte. His documentation, if any, consists of tattoos and a handwritten note listing the town where his ‘relatives’ are living in the shadows doing the work US business won’t pay citizens enough to do.

Once he arrives at the border he wades, rides, walks, sneaks, jumps or runs across. If he’s not lucky enough to be captured immediately by the Border Patrol, Jesusito must track one down and inform the CBP officer of his rights and what services the officer needs to provide to avoid a UN investigation.

On the United flight the unaccompanied minor gets a bag of pretzels.

At INS Daycare Jesusito gets food, a bed, his diaper changed (only if necessary), a shower, entertainment, visits from befuddled Members of Congress and transportation that will reunite him with the family whose deportation he will prevent in the future. And it’s all free! Well, free for Jesusito since the taxpayers are footing the bill.]

So it’s no wonder Cantor lost with that kind of distraction affecting his base. Of course there is no guarantee Eric would have won even without the interference of the infant invasion. His new amigos aren’t known for displays of gratitude, in fact amnesty advocates invaded Cantor’s ‘Victory Celebration’ after he lost demanding legislation he was in no position to pass after the polls closed.

Now that he’s no longer a political factor the rumors of how hard it was to work with Cantor’s arrogant staff start to surface. This is plausible. Cantor was House Majority Leader, so he gets funding for two sets of staff members: The Congressional staff and the majority leader’s staff. I used to work for a majority leader and in DC this officer holder is not a mere congressman or representative. People address him as ‘leader’ and do so with a straight face. It’s like ruling in your own private North Korea without the really bad hair and mass starvation.

You can imagine what a shock it must have been to go back to the district were voters not only didn’t call him ‘leader,’ they asked impertinent questions and wanted college recommendations for their kids.

The same goes for the staff. In DC everyone treads lightly around these pencil necks because they have Cantor’s ear and can make your political life miserable. But they, too get no respect when some rube from Virginia calls wondering where her Social Security check is and why her son can’t get full disability after that unfortunate explosion in the meth lab.

The only portion of Cantor’s new base that came through for him was the big business money that allowed him to outspend opponent Dave Brat by 25–to–1.

Which reminds me: How many of you took my excellent advice shared here and contributed to Brat’s campaign BEFORE he won? I feel like one of those guys that bought Apple stock before Steve started using deodorant and came back to save the company.

Cantor is another one of those too–clever–by–half politicians that outgrew their voters and made the fatal mistake of letting the voters know it. His focus–group tested language and his amnesty triangulation — conservative enough to confuse the district, but not so much that the US Chamber of Commerce, agriculture lobbyists and HB–1 visa proponents would shut off the money spigot — had one fatal flaw. Clinton, the inventor of triangulation, did his in the general election, not the primary.

Brat’s campaign and his fund raising just got him over the threshold of credibility and angry voters did the rest. But Brat should take care that Cantor’s defeat doesn’t go to his head. When an incumbent loses the vast majority of voters don’t vote for the winner, they vote against the incumbent. Brat just happened to reap the whirlwind.

He must still continue to make the case for his ideas and build strong ties with the district before November.

In the meantime conservatives can enjoy watching the amnesty lobby explain how illegal immigration had absolutely nothing to do with Cantor’s loss. In fact, if Cantor had only come out stronger for amnesty and Chipotle has closed early on the day of the primary, he would still be the Congressman.

It’s like trying to explain that Noah’s flood didn’t wipe out the earth’s population. The root cause was lack of oxygen and no Corps of Engineers.

Why Col. Sanders Is a Better Strategist than Col. Riley

In spite of his superior numbers, Maj. Gen. Jubal Early didn't meet with any more success than Col. Riley.

In spite of his superior numbers, Maj. Gen. Jubal Early didn’t meet with any more success than Col. Riley.

Don’t take your guns to town son,

Leave your guns at home Bill,

Don’t take your guns to town.

Johnny Cash ‘Don’t Take Your Guns to Town’

Marching on Washington, DC to change the government has not met with success. 150 years ago Maj. Gen. Jubal Early traveled up the Shenandoah Valley in an effort to outflank the Union and attack Washington from the North.

He was making excellent progress until he reached Monocacy, MD. There the campaign began to lose momentum under a blizzard of regulation and EPA requests for environmental impact statements. There was also some concern regarding the potential for Chesapeake Bay pollution due to cavalry manure runoff.

Lacking a parade permit, his 14,000 men were turned away at Fort Stevens just outside the District’s city limit.

Not only did Early fail to set foot in Washington, his march had no effect on the election that November. Abraham Lincoln was returned to office, the war continued and Early — joined by a few other ‘angry white men’ — fled the country when Gen. Robert E. Lee surrendered the next year at Appomattox.

Now retired Army Col. Harry Riley planned to march on DC last week with a group of what The Washington Times describes as “revolutionary–style patriots.” Riley’s goal, like Jubal Early’s, is to change the government starting with Barack Obama, John Boehner, Eric Holder, Harry Reid, Mitch McConnell, Nancy Pelosi and ‘Shotgun’ Joe Biden.

“We are calling for [their] removal … as a start toward constitutional restoration,” Riley explained. “They have all abandoned the U.S. Constitution, are unworthy to be retained in a position that calls for servant status.”

So far, so good, I’d take a walk, too, if getting rid of even three of the seven named was a possibility. But I’m going to sit this one out. The colonel’s effort is called “Operation American Spring” and Riley describes it as the American answer to the ‘Arab Spring’ in more ways than one.

So far he’s not calling for black flags to be flown, but the colonel does envision somewhere between 10 million and 30 million “mobilized militia members” marching down Pennsylvania Ave over the weekend. Arab Spring marchers were known mostly for their propensity to riot, toss Molotov cocktails and fire the occasional RPG. In addition, under Arab Spring rules government change does not appear to be limited to one per customer. Turnover is more like the management suite at an Obama health exchange.

According the Cheryl Chumley, “Col. Riley said he hopes the event will go forward peaceably, but that so far, peaceful protests haven’t brought citizens much luck. He also said that more than 1 million militia members have already mobilized for the event — and that projections of 10 million to attend aren’t pie in the sky.”

No, I would call that crack in the pipe.

Leaving aside Riley’s wildly delusional crowd estimate, just the mention of the word ‘militia’ is enough to cause Starbucks baristas to start calling in sick. The last thing conservatives need is for even 10 gun–toting militia members to cross the Potomac and enter enemy territory.

One picture of a rifle slung over a ‘militia’ man’s shoulder is all it takes to reinforce every misleading stereotype of 2nd Amendment supporters and conservatives. Even if the group is unarmed, when only a handful joins the colonel in his forlorn hope that too will damage our movement, since lack of numbers is an indication of lack of support.

Riley won’t even be able to claim his hardy band drove the targets out of the capital, since everyone knows the House and Senate leaves on the weekend and Obama plays golf.

It almost makes one wonder if Col. Riley isn’t an agent provocateur planted among conservatives by MSNBC.

The reality of Riley’s Raid was somewhat less impressive. His gathering was described as “tens of people” and fortunately none of them were toting weapons any more dangerous than a lawn chair. And as of the date of publication, the same crowd of pretentious hashtaggers was still in power.

Fortunately, I have a better idea for conservatives interested in changing the government and it doesn’t require extensive hydration or risk arrest. Follow my example and make a contribution to the Dave Brat for Congress campaign.

Brat is challenging Eric Cantor in Virginia’s 7th district primary. Cantor is a former conservative that went native in record time. As House Majority Leader he’s surrounded by people who actually call him “leader” as they shine his shoes with their tongue, so it’s no wonder the power and position have gone to his head.

He’s managed to make himself disliked by Speaker Boehner and distrusted by conservatives in the House. He’s betrayed conservative principles, backed a budget bill that gutted the sequester and has gone south on amnesty.

The incomparable Ann Coulter has endorsed Brat and the best part is Brat doesn’t have to win — although that would be best — for Cantor and the rest of the leadership squishes to get the message that conservatives are unhappy and ready to take action.

Incumbents are personally offended by primary challenges. Chamber lobbyists tell them what a great job they’re doing and then some yokel announces for his seat. The nerve of some people! So Brat already has Cantor’s attention.

If Brat can get over 40 percent of the vote, then Cantor gets a message even the self–important can’t ignore. Even if Brat doesn’t win, but is still able to raise a significant amount of money, that money talks, or in this case grumbles, and sends another type of message to Cantor.

I felt so good after giving money to Brat that I also donated to Anthony Riedel who is challenging Rob Wittman in Virginia’s 1st Congressional District where I live. After he supported the budget sellout I wasn’t voting for Wittman anyway, so rather than sit the election out, I’ll vote and contribute to Riedel. That sends two messages to Whittman, too.

So here’s my advice: If you want to visit a colonel this weekend, go to KFC. And if you want to change GOP leadership thinking in Washington, contribute to Dave Brat and Anthony Riedel.

Far Left Radical Extremism on Full Display

Sometimes words are not needed to show just how disgustingly hateful certain members of Congress can become. See for yourself, and drop in a comment below about this disgusting disply of Liberal lunacy. (unless you condone this type of hate-speech)

That display of hateful rhetoric was spewed while speaking to delegates at the 2012 CA Democratic Party Convention. Thank you, Mrs. Waters for providing the perfect example of just what the Democratic party of 2012 has become. PS: Has Maxine Waters been brought back up on the ethics trial for her TARP fraud-bank bailout graft to her husband yet? Nope! Why not, Republican Leaders in the House?

House Republicans Pass Highway (to Hell) Bill by Voice Vote

Yesterday, Sept. 14, 2011 should be marked as an eye-opening day of revelation for conservative voters across the nation that handed the U.S. House of Representatives to the GOP in the historic 2010 elections. Why should this day be such an eye-opener? Well, this is the day that Republicans used the Liberal trickery that we have seen for the past 5 years to pass a critical leglislative spending bill by voice vote.

First of all, they quietly passed the bill by voice vote. This is the gimmickry that politicians use when they want to deny grassroots watchdog groups the ability to hold representatives accountable for their votes on such critical issues as highway funding. Speaker Boehner will have a hell of a lot of explaining to do when the media gets ahold of this information. This all started when House Majority Leader (and Boehner confidant/apprentice) Eric Cantor announced that the House GOP would not use the looming short-term C.R.spending bill to continue the fight with Democrats over spending levels.  So the people handed the GOP a majority in the House, which is supposed to control the taxpayers purse by the way, and instead will go along with increased spending levels dictated by the “grand bargain” known as the debt deal. This intial capitulation was noted over at Roll Call here, in which we see Cantor brush off the very folks who put him and Boehner in control of the House in 2010:

The Virginia Republican said that while he and other Republicans will continue to seek cuts to the federal budget, they will stick to the debt deal with the White House that sets spending at a higher level than the GOP’s budget.   ( emphasis mine)

So once again we see that the cowards of Congress are afraid to hold the line on debt spending even though America’s credit rating was downgraded and we are fast approaching $15 trillion dollars of national debt. Cantor basically came out with the excuse that the government will shut down if they don’t continue to collapse the U.S economy through fiscal insanity:

The risk of bringing about brinkmanship or another shutdown [fight] would not be helpful,” Cantor said, insisting that Republicans by and large support addressing the CR in a manner “without there having to be another potential for shutdown and [instead] maintain our focus” on jobs.

This is what happens when you have elected officials perpetually concerned with scoring campaign points over actually doing the jobs they are paid to do. Cantor releases that statement on Monday, as a way to prep the conservative base to get used to more bloated debt spending bills that will increase our debt instead of putting up a fight to get spending under control. That statement was released on Monday and low and behold look what transpired on Tuesday the very next day: This comes to us from Mr. Russ Vought via redstate.com, who actually works for The Heritage Foundation:

Then we find out that a separate bill (H.R. 2887) to extend the federal highway and aviation programs for six months was rushed through the House this afternoon without even a recorded vote. ( emphasis mine)

Holding votes on massive spending bills which allow reps. to hide under the cover of a voice vote where they can not be held accountable for their actions is a nasty disservice to the American people, no matter how you slice it. While we have come to expect this kind of tyrannical gimmickry from the Liberal fake Democrats, we expect better from the GOP. If you clowns think you can slip this past we the people, you’ve got another thing coming. Witness Mr. Vought’s above-linked article and this one right here. Boehner, Cantor and company have effectively used the “sacred debt ceiling deal” to line up with the fake Democrats of the past five years to keep on spending America into insolvency. This points to a famous saying of yester-year: “They are all in this together!”

The Progressive Socialism pimps have effectively moved the bar by controlling the message once again. It is now [supposedly] unacceptable for we the people to demand that Congress stop the insanity and only spend what they take in every year. America has now moved from a center-right, prosperous freedom-loving nation, to a nation of cowards who will allow the tyrants of big government to drive our system right into a collision with massive debt problems from which we will never recover. The “R” that is supposed to represent the conservative values of our Republican Party has been tarnished once again today. To pull this kind of stunt all in the name of being moderates to work with our ” friends across the aisle”  while irreparably damaging American’s future prosperity through irresponsible debt spending increases, and then using Liberal leglislative gimmickry to avoid accountability by doing it through a voice vote really makes me lose hope for the future of our Republic. While we need to remain optimistic about the future of America, it is very hard to do so considering the fact that, thanks to Liberal Democrat Harry Reid blocking and refusing to act on any House passed spending bills in the U.S. Senate, America will once again operate with no firm spending budget in place for the third straight year. How’s that hope n change workin out for you America? Barack Obama and the Liberals want to dump four more years of this nonsense onto us in the 2012 elections, and now apparently have enlisted the help of  House Republicans.  We truly are on the Highway to insolvency hell people, and it is just a matter of how fast we will get there now.

Obama’s Speech on Deficit Reduction: “My finely honed Political Instincts”

Our Obama, who art on vacation, Hollowed be thy head.
Your limo come, vacation’s done,
in Chicago as it is in Hawaii.

Give us this day our daily cheese,
and forgive us our conservatism,
as we forgive those commie, pinko, progressive, tree-hugging environmentalist wacko Van Jones clones who trespass against us.

And lead us not into solvency,
but deliver us from living within our means.

For thine is the Federal Reserve, and the student loans,
and the Obama stash, forever and ever – at least until the worm turns.
Amen.

The stupidity of Barack Hussein Obama’s supposedly intellectual political arguments goes beyond the pale. No, take that back! Obama didn’t say a thing. TOTUS did all the talking. Obama’s overhyped speech today, Wednesday, April 13th, didn’t deviate one whit from his commie track record. In fact it didn’t even start on time. He was late as usual…word has it that he was on the toilet. Presidentin’ makes you want to “go” don’t cha know. And then rumor has it that while walking to the speech he allegedly stopped along the way to squeeze the fruit – regrettably, Barney Frank couldn’t be reached for comment. Another possible reason given for the lateness of Obama’s arrival at the podium was the suggestion that the Obamas were held up reenacting that scene from the Geico commercial featuring Abraham and Mary Todd Lincoln. So Michelle supposedly told Barack to get her something good for her birthday and gives him some hints like “I want something shiny, which goes from zero to 200 in five seconds.” So Barack gets her a scale! But anyway, we digress – Time to get back on track with the weightier matter of the stupidity of Obama’s political speechifying arguments.

He’s a moron when it comes to economics, commerce, business, and finance.  Stealing the message of conservatism from the true conservatives, Obama magnanimously called on both Democrats and Republicans to balance the budget and work toward paying down the debt of the federal government. But then his inner communist took over and he decided that the way to accomplish the feat would be to put an end to the Bush-era tax cuts for those making more than $250,000 a year. Somehow, Obama is convinced that penalizing the productive will somehow translate into exalting the nonproductive elements of society. In other news apples and oranges have been deemed to be identical. “The only concrete proposal that he proposed was raising taxes,” said Eric Cantor, a member of the House GOP leadership. “That solution falls far short of dealing with the kind of crises that we’re facing,” said Cantor.

A blogger known only as Freddie Cougar said it best: “Raising taxes = ‘reducing tax expenditures,’ addressing ‘spending reductions in the tax code,’ ‘spending in the tax code,’ and ‘spending reductions in the tax code.’ Doublespeak at its finest.” It was a friggin’ campaign speech. Government has been the source of our prosperity? Good grief, it was another revisionist history lesson from our commie president. According to Obama tax cuts are the problem. “It’s all the Bush’s fault” – signed Moses. Poor Dubya, the Evil Genius. Obama is good at only one thing. He is an exceptional liar. Obama is a crybaby. Obama is a wimp. Obama is a whiner. Obama blames everyone but himself. Obama sucks. His entire talk could have been summed up thusly: “When I took office…it’s not my fault!”

Behold the Lying King! We’ve all heard the old joke that goes something like this: “What is the difference between the Lion King and Barack Obama? The Lion King is an African Lion. Obama is a Lying African.” Liberals inevitably call the joke racist. They don’t get the fact that liars can come from any continent. It’s just the plain fact, Jack that this one’s roots are from Kenya. Last we heard, after that stupefying speech, is that the village doesn’t want its idiot back. Good for the village! Perhaps the HildaBeast can spare a dime.

In a poor zoo of Africa, a lion was frustrated as he was offered not more than 1 kilogram of meat a day.

The lion thought its prayers were answered when one day a Honolulu Zoo manager visited the zoo and requested the zoo management to shift the lion to the Honolulu Zoo.

The lion was so happy and started thinking of a central A/C environment and a goat or two every day.

On its first day after arrival, the lion was offered a big bag, sealed nicely for breakfast. The lion opened it quickly but was shocked to see that it contained nothing but a few bottles of KGBean dip. The lion thought that maybe they cared too much for him as they were worried about his stomach as he had recently shifted locations.

The next day the same thing happened. On the third day again the same food bag of KGBean dip was delivered. The lion was so furious; it stopped the delivery boy and blasted him, “don’t you know I am the lion…King of the Jungle? What’s wrong with your management? What nonsense is this? Why are you delivering KGBean dip to me?”

The delivery boy politely said, “Sir, I know you are the King of the Jungle … but… you have been brought here on Frank Marshall Davis’ visa!”

Now we know that Obama’s speech was timed so as to not go up against Dancing With The Stars. We don’t know why; but considering the way Obama tap-danced around Libya and the economy, he might have won. Some people are saying Obama was a little bit testy during the speech. Hmmm… it looks like somebody’s March Madness bracket pick didn’t do so well. You know, ever since the CEO of G.E. became his advisor, everything Obama says sounds like a light bulb commercial. Walk to the light, little people! Walk to the light!

It was recently reported in the news that Obama had been accidentally locked out of the White House. For that one panicked moment Obama thought that they must have found his real birth certificate. At least the locked door to the White House gave Obama an alibi. “I didn’t do it. It was broken when I got here.” – Barack “Bart Simpson” Obama.

America has taken up the drinking game to pass the time during Obama’s speeches. Drone. Drone. Drone. Drone. Drink. Of course the game gets a little mixed up when it comes to the Obamartini – made with Absolut Zero.

And then there was Barry’s Audacity of Hype. Did he really say “My finely honed political instincts”? Bwahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha! I can’t breathe! First off, Barack, you are a politician. Second, all of our taxes are spent on the entitlements. Everything else is funded by loans. Barack, you are a fiscal imbecile. “Gubmint cheese is the best cheese there is. And it is free. Free for you and free for me,” – the essence of Obama’s talk about his stash and entitlements. “I’ll take Manchurian Candidate for $500, Alex.” Ahhh, Komrades. It is boootiful day in USSA. Did he say corpseman? This dumbass couldn’t even pass a middle school speech class. By Friday afternoon he will backpedal on everything he said by making what he said “perfectly clear”. Got it? For the Obamassiah, there is no issue he cannot straddle. Oh fer cryin’ out loud. Did he just denounce his own 2012 budget? Is he mentally challenged? Does he not recall what he threw out in January? Obama is nothing but a Puppet of Meat. Yo, Meat Puppet! Nobody’s clapping so quit waiting for the applause. It ain’t coming your way.

Is there any doubt about his Marxism? Like was said up front, Obama’s stupidity goes beyond the pale. What level of Hell has the United States of America sunk to when Obama’s sophist rhetoric is actually taken seriously?  Isn’t America starting to feel a bit bloated from all the smoke being blown up its collective arse? Furthermore, what the Hell is a Kwag-mahr? Is Kwag-marh a city in Pohkeesstohn?

Four trillion in cuts over 12 years…backed by his “fail-safe” guaranty. Wimpy: “I’ll gladly pay you Tuesday for a hamburger today.” LOL, when has congress ever followed up on a guarantee? Lock box anyone? America is going to have to practice bending over a LOT more… Can this get any worse? Of course it can! Darn it, Mr. President, would you at least treat us to dinner and a movie first?

Obama’s pandering for the senior vote is getting old. Note to Obama: You have lost the senior vote and you will not get it back. You stupid meat puppet teleprompter reading political hack. We all find you taxing, which explains this:

The Tax System – Explained With Beer

Suppose that every day, ten men go out for beer and the bill for all ten comes to $100.

If they paid their bill the way we pay our taxes, it would go something like this:

  • The first four men (the poorest) would pay nothing.
  • The fifth would pay $1.
  • The sixth would pay $3.
  • The seventh would pay $7.
  • The eighth would pay $12.
  • The ninth would pay $18.
  • The tenth man (the richest) would pay $59.

So, that’s what they decided to do.

The ten men drank in the bar every day and seemed quite happy with the arrangement, until one day, the owner threw them a curve.

‘Since you are all such good customers,’ he said, ‘I’m going to reduce the cost of your daily beer by $20.’
‘Drinks for the ten now cost just $80.’

The group still wanted to pay their bill the way we pay our taxes so the first four men were unaffected. They would still drink for free. But what about the other six men – the paying customers? How could they divide the $20 windfall so that everyone would get his ‘fair share?’

They realized that $20 divided by six is $3.33. But if they subtracted that from everybody’s share, then the fifth man and the sixth man would each end up being paid to drink his beer. So, the bar owner suggested that it would be fair to reduce each man’s bill by roughly the same amount, and he proceeded to work out the amounts each should pay.

And so:

  • The fifth man, like the first four, now paid nothing (100% savings).
  • The sixth now paid $2 instead of $3 (33%savings) .
  • The seventh now pay $5 instead of $7 (28%savings) .
  • The eighth now paid $9 instead of $12 ( 25% savings).
  • The ninth now paid $14 instead of $18 ( 22% savings).
  • The tenth now paid $49 instead of $59 (16% savings).

Each of the six was better off than before. And the first four continued to drink for free. But once outside the restaurant, the men began to compare their savings.

‘I only got a dollar out of the $20,’ declared the sixth man. He pointed to the tenth man, ‘but he got $10!’
‘Yeah, that’s right,’ exclaimed the fifth man. ‘I only saved a dollar, too. It’s unfair that he got ten times more than I!’

‘That’s true!!’ shouted the seventh man. ‘Why should he get $10 back when I got only two? The wealthy get all the breaks!’

‘Wait a minute,’ yelled the first four men in unison. ‘We didn’t get anything at all. The system exploits the poor!’

The nine men surrounded the tenth and beat him up.

The next night the tenth man didn’t show up for drinks, so the nine sat down and had beers without him. But when it came time to pay the bill, they discovered something important. They didn’t have enough money between all of them for even half of the bill!

And that, boys and girls, journalists and college professors, is how our tax system works. The people who pay the highest taxes get the most benefit from a tax reduction. Tax them too much, attack them for being wealthy, and they just may not show up anymore. In fact, they might start drinking overseas where the atmosphere is somewhat friendlier.

For those who understand, no explanation is needed.

For those who do not understand, no explanation is possible.

So Barry, what are we cutting in order to balance the budget? Oh, I see, you’re cutting employment and taxing the rich. Great plan!!! Okay, JackWagon, WHAT DO WE CUT? – Besides Defense? Typical Obama speech, lots of hype and no substance. I thought Pakistan said no more drones. Obama never ceases to amaze. He is laying on the lies and class warfare like there’s no tomorrow. Logic isn’t his strong suit. Come to think of it…nothing is his strong suit…unless flies on the lip count for something. America felt like it was watching tennis during Obama’s speech. Left – right, left – right. Teleprompter 1, teleprompter 2.

Obama could have stood on the podium and picked his nose for 30 minutes. The Main Stream Media would have still declared the speech a victory, and that was that. Obama throws out accusations at conservatives but offers no plan of his own. He avoids specifics like the plague. You can just envision Obama saying something like this: “I will give every American everything they want and it won’t cost a cent. I’m leaving it to Congress to figure out how to make that happen.”

The jackwagoniest of jackwagons; what a miserable, pathetic president we have. Expectations for today’s speech were low, but he still managed to hook an ankle on the bar he could have easily stepped over.

The highlight of the speech was Rip Van Biden’s reaction to it – which was a big effing deal! Joe slept though it!

Joe Biden engaging in a Big Effing Deal!

See the photo for proof. Old Joe has heard the commie spiel so many times that he can doze off through an entire progressive speech and not miss a thing. No big deal, Joe. The rest of the country was going comatose, too. All you missed, Joe, was Obama saying “My vision for America is one where we live within our means, blinded by my socialistic government ideology.” Got it, Joe? Good! Now, remember, Joe, that for the rest of us our vision for America is to wipe away all you FDR/Johnson/LBJ/progressing/Obama stains from our Republic. All we know is that Obama’s plan is heavy on the “fail” and light on the “safe.” Obama says he wants America to live within its means? Okay! – Then no more flying in a favorite chef from Chicago to make pizza at the White House. No more ridiculously expensive vacations on the public’s dime! No more lobster deliveries for Michelle. No more flying Obama’s dog Bo around on his own private jet. Man, I dunno. I mean, it’s probably pretty hard subsisting on a $15T budget. Perhaps Obama meant everybody but the government has to live within their means. There, that’s better! Be thankful for small gifts, America – at least he’s not using the stupid Slurpee story anymore.

That’s an F+ for effort, Barry, and a G- for substance. “My vision for America is one where we live within our means.” No it’s not, Barry. LIAR! LIAR! LIAR! LIAR! LIAR! LIAR! LIAR! LIAR! LIAR! LIAR! LIAR! LIAR! LIAR! LIAR! LIAR! LIAR! LIAR! LIAR! LIAR! LIAR! LIAR! LIAR! LIAR!

Gene Roddenberry was a prophet. Ladies and Gentlemen, I present Landreu, the automated president….programmed to respond. Click, whir, Dolby Sound enabled. Here’s Barry at his best:

Same Old GOP: $22Billion in Cuts Voted Down

I recieved a very disturbing Email  news bulletin today from The Hill.com today. Here is the headline  that I find it to be disturbing:

House rejects extra $22 billion in cuts that divided Republicans*

The House rejected a measure cutting an additional $22 billion from the Republican spending bill, as conservatives ran into a wall of opposition from the GOP establishment over the depth of reductions to federal funding.

Lets review our debt numbers today, just in case the Old Guard GOP has forgotten them. The CBO projects our National Deficit to be $1.62 trillion dollars (and counting) this year. That is basically just what our illustrious members of Congress have overspent for this year. Today the House was working on the ( what should be considered illegal ) continuing resolution to run our government for the rest of this year. Yes folks, we once again are running our country without a set budget thanks to our elected representatives of Congress. But isn’t the House supposed to control the purse of the taxpayer, and didn’t the voters fire a record number of members of congress due to these kinds of actions in 2010? Didn’t we elect a record number of Republicans with the promises that they would be cutting spending and reducing our debt? Apparently, this has all been just another con job, and we have seen today that this is nothing more than The Same Old GOP. Just who is behind this refusal to make the serious cuts we have been promised? Further on in The Hill.com article we see exactly what happened here:

“Authored by RSC chairman Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), the proposal would have dramatically reshaped an appropriations bill that already slashes federal spending by $61 billion over the next seven months.”

“More than half of the Republican conference backed the measure in opposition to two party chiefs, Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) and Whip Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.), who voted with every Democrat against it.” (emphasis mine)
“Like no previous proposal, the heated debate over the amendment drew a bright line through the GOP conference, pitting conservatives pushing the deepest spending cuts against senior Republicans who denounced them as “misguided,” “indiscriminate” and, in the case of Rep. Daniel Lungren (R-Calif.), “lazy.”

Political pundits from across the spectrum, and propagandists from the left have been blowing up a supposed rift between the GOP and the new members of the house including the Teaparty for months now, and apparently the Old Guard GOP is dead set on proving them right. I don’t view this as anything less than broken promises and the continuation of the GOP to spend us into economic Armageddon like the last 4 years of Democratic rule have done. Once again. numbers do not lie when presented completely and truthfully. Our total national debt was $8.5 Trillion dollars at the end of 2006. At the end of 4 years of Democratic control of our entire Congress in 2010, the national debt was $13.5 Trillion dollars.** That is an increase of $5 trillion dollars of debt piled onto the backs of every taxpaying U.S. citizen in 4 years. Lets not forget that the big spenders are not done spending in 2011, as we see in the above statements. The CBOprojects another $1.62 Trillion in debt for 2011. $61 billion dollars is a drop in the bucket when we consider how much these mathematically challenged elitists have already spent this year.

So, the current Congress, while staring at $1.62 trillion dollars of debt for this year alone, refused to cut another measly $22 Billion dollars, leaving the cuts to total at $61 Billion in cuts in spending. I must note here that over 1/4 of the fiscal year 2011 is already gone! So yes, we will still have well over $1.5 trillion dollars in new debt this year alone.Same Old GOP. Here is something that needs to be told here also. Kristi Noem (R-SD), the freshman congresswoman who received the backing of the Teaparty to get elected voted against the cuts. She was also given a house leadership position by Speaker Boehner. Same Old GOP. Now we know why the Teaparty folks were concerned that the Old Guard GOP would corrupt their newly elected representatives. It also happened in the first real budget issue that has come before the house. Same Old GOP.

I watched some of the continuing resolution debate in the house today. What I saw was The Same Old GOP, arguing that $22 billion in cuts was too much, would hurt the people, cost us jobs, collapse the economy, on and on with the same old excuses as the Democrats were using, while exhibiting an elitist attitude in refusing to do what we elected them to do. At one point I thought, “I can’t tell the Republicans from the Democrats here.” It sounded like 80% of the house members were Progressives ganging up on the other 20%, who were Conservatives working on restoring some fiscal sanity into America today. Same Old GOP.

2012 will see another historic election, my only question is which type of big spending Progressives will get the most pink slips, the ones with the “D” after their name or the “R”.
