Shades of Clarence Thomas in the Herman Cain “Sex Scandal?”

It looks like the media is stepping up its game on Herman Cain, ditching – for now – attempts to paint him as a fool and instead trying to make him look like a hound dog, rather like they did with the Clarence Thomas sex scandal two decades before.

Back in 1991, when President George H. W. Bush nominated Clarence Thomas to the U.S. Supreme Court, the left called on Anita Hill to step forward with allegations of sexual harassment against the black conservative.

Nothing was ever proven and Thomas was confirmed regardless. But the left isn’t terribly imaginative (or intelligent) and so they’ve apparently decided to try, try again like the old school nursery maxim instructs all good little kindergarteners.

So that’s exactly what they’re doing, though instead of producing one woman to brand the enemy this time, they’re calling on two this time. Sort-of.

Once again, nothing has been proven in a court of law, so it’s mere allegations at play. And apparently, neither woman involved can come forward and say anything since they signed confidentiality agreements.

But Politico is still all too happy to publish a four page report about Cain’s time as head of the National Restaurant Association in 1990s, when two “women complained of sexually suggestive behavior by Cain that made them angry and uncomfortable.”

Because sexual harassment usually feels so good?

Not really sure what Politico is trying to say there, so I’m just going to dismiss the two adjectives as mere melodramatic journalistic spin, the kind the mainstream media is very well known for.

Knowing how they are, it’s quite tempting to dismiss the whole story as mere propaganda for the left. So tempting in fact, that’s it’s very nearly impossible to resist.

And who am I to defy such odds?

At this point, I have far better things to do than start believing the mainstream media when they cry wolf… even if it is Halloween.

Students Teaching Against Racism Preaches How to (Politically) Correct Your Halloween Costume

If you’re planning on donning a Halloween costume this weekend, you might want to rethink your outfit, says a group of Ohio University students.

Students Teaching Against Racism in Society (STARS) – as opposed to Students Teaching Against Racism in a Vacuum (STARV) – officially launched a now nationally known campaign against dressing up as anything that smacks of stereotyping, i.e. Japanese geishas, Latinos in ponchos and sombreros, Arab terrorists, etc.

If the admittedly short news story on this latest outbreak of political correctness is any indication, STARS would have no problem if you want to slap a cowboy hat on your head and pinning a star to your leather vest, however.

Also not mentioned were the prima ballerinas – who always get a bad rap – Darth Vader – who nobody remembers for his epic opt for good in his final moments – Big Bird – who, along with so many other fictitious critters, went full slut last year… probably without their signed and recorded consent! – and countless other much-maligned characters and groups.

I was going to dress up as Snow White for Halloween, since my dark curly locks automatically lend themselves to such an outfit, but who knows what real-life princesses I might offend with what could all too easily be seen as a stereotype? (I’m sorry Kate!) Or with any other costume, for that matter?

Clearly, the only solution to this dilemma is to ban all costumes altogether! And while we’re at it, in an effort to really make sure we never, ever, ever offend anybody else ever again, let’s ban people too!

Though maybe that won’t be enough since, according to PETA’s lawsuit against SeaWorld, we need to be considering animals’ feelings to. And you know how cruel they can be when a stripe or spot is out of place… so maybe we should ban them too.

But that still leaves Mother Earth, which could potentially be offended at the sheer lack of sentient life left on the planet. So perhaps nuking the planet into oblivion is really the only way to go.

That way – maybe – Students Teaching Against Racism in Society and the rest of the PC crowd will stop complaining about potentially offensive material.

And the rest of us will finally have some peace and quiet.

Occupy Wall Street’s Occupy Oakland Branch Member Suffers Serious Injury

So it’s finally happened.

One of the idiot Occupy Wall Streeters got injured and everybody is up in arms about it, as if the group hasn’t caused its fair share of grief for more than a month.

The injured idiot Occupy Wall Streeter, 24-year-old Iraq War veteran Scott Olsen, joined the Occupy Oakland branch about a week ago. But his stay was cut short by “a tear gas attack by police” – as NBC News terms it – on Tuesday night.

NBC kept the details – intentionally? – vague, so who knows who was actually to blame in the end: police or the idiot Occupy Wall Streeters (Who wants to vote for the second?). But suffice it to say that tempers are flaring in the already agitated bunch of nitwits these days since so many cities are trying to give their local groups the boot.

Let me just state the obvious that I do wish the best for Scott Olsen, which includes both a speedy physical recovery and a reunion with reality. But considering all of the trouble Occupy Wall Street has caused nationwide, it’s rather a miracle that there hasn’t been a police-induced injury before this point.

After all, between the dope smoking, rape, child molestation, indecent exposure, disorderly conduct, assault, vagrancy and the like, it's kinda obvious that these people aren’t exactly law-abiding citizens.

PETA Sues SeaWorld for Violating the 13th Amendment Ban on Slavery

“A federal court is being asked to grant constitutional rights to five killer whales who perform at marine parks – an unprecedented and perhaps quixotic legal action that is nonetheless likely to stoke an ongoing, intense debate at America’s law schools over expansion of animal rights.”

So begins an AP article, which just gets more ridiculous as it continues with: “People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals is accusing the SeaWorld parks of keeping five star-performer whales in conditions that violate the 13th Amendment ban on slavery… [which] does not specify that only humans can be victims.”

Here are a few other noteworthy snippets:

“The lawsuit asks the court to order the orcas released to the custody of a legal guardian who would find a ‘suitable habitat’ for them.

“‘By any definition, these orcas are slaves – kidnapped from their homes, kept confined, denied everything that’s natural to them and forced to perform tricks for SeaWorld’s profit,’ said [Jeff] Kerr [PETA’s general counsel whose legal team spent 18 months preparing the case]. “The males have their sperm collected, the females are artificially inseminated and forced to bear young which are sometimes shipped away.”

And…

“… the field of animal law has evolved steadily, with courses taught at scores of law schools. Many prominent lawyers and academics have joined in serious discussion about expanding animal rights.

“Rutgers University law professor Gary Francione, for example, contends that animals deserve the fundamental right to not be treated as property. Law professor David Favre of Michigan State University has proposed a new legal category called ‘living property’ as a step toward providing rights for some animals.”

Really, after all of that, what else is there to say? There are, quite simply put, no words to eloquently and efficiently sum up that level of stupidity.

So why even bother.

Meghan McCain Joins Occupy Wall Street in Making Little Coherent Sense

Meghan McCain is at it again, pretending that smarts can be bought in a box of hair dye.

Writing for the Daily Beast, McCain shares her journey through Occupy Wall Street, which “wasn’t as occupied as I expected it to be” and “smelled distinctively like marijuana.” She shares how the first person she ran into “couldn’t remember his last name” and the second was some crackpot prophet handing out fliers to “inspire hope.”

“But most of the people… had real stories of hardship and despair,” she continues. Apparently, that includes Yvette Vigo, a 45-year-old teacher who was laid of last year, has six children and “was lucky” if she made $15,000 a year.

“If anyone comes here and talks to us, they will know that we aren’t here for handouts. We want somebody to hear us,” she said, and declared that she’s in it for the long haul.

If McCain was prone to reasoning like an adult, she would ask the following perfectly logical follow-up questions: If Yvette Vigo has six children, where are they now, how is she supporting them… and where are theirs father or fathers?

That last one might not be the nicest inquiry to make, but it’s still perfectly relevant.

But of course Ms. McCain doesn’t bother with such details. She instead rambles on with about the same amount of cohesion as the subject matter she writes about, which even she (shockingly enough) has the ability to see “has no clear message or sense of direction.”

In fact, throughout the article, it’s completely unclear whether she’s pro-Occupy Wall Street, uncertain or hopeful. But with her middle school-esque writing style (Her Title is even “My Day at Occupy Wall Street”), she might do their already damaged reputation more harm than good, as she writes:

“The anger from Occupy Wall Street is coming from this simple fact: America no longer seems to be a place where you can work your way up, from rags to riches, from lower class to middle class to upper class. If people aren’t given a fair shot, how can they work to achieve their dreams? This should be the message of Occupy Wall Street: we just want a chance; our government needs to give us a chance. But through all the pot smoke and distracting costumes, I’m not sure if that message is getting out.

“As I was leaving Occupy Wall Street, I spotted a man who was attending the festivities wearing a giant cape made of tin foil. He was pretending that he could fly, but the tin foil just kept blowing around him, making an empty crinkling sound. He isn’t the kind of superhero that these people need.”

With that kind of reasoning (or lack thereof) – not to mention the other idiot things she’s said in the past – the liberally-motivated Occupy Wall Street can have Meghan McCain. Because conservatives have most definitely had enough of her.

Mom Shoots Would-Be Kidnapper: This Is Why the Second Amendment Matters

Let’s talk guns, dangerous subject though it might be.

Thomas Jefferson once said: “The Constitution of most of our states (and of the United States) assert that all power is inherent in the people; that they may exercise it by themselves; that it is their right and duty to be at all times armed and that they are entitled to freedom of person, freedom of religion, freedom of property, and freedom of press.”

And most of the Founding Fathers agreed with him on that point, as evidenced by the fact that it was in the Bill of Rights, guns and all. And, as Thomas Jefferson also said, that is because no “country can preserve its liberties, if its rulers are not warned from time to time that this people preserve the spirit of resistance… The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time, with the blood of patriots and tyrants.”

In other words, the only way to keep government honest is at gunpoint. Literally and figuratively.

But there’s another reason why gun ownership is a right that every free-minded American should support.

Because, let’s face it, with far more money going towards “fighting” poverty these days than crime, the law enforcement-criminal ratio isn’t exactly conducive to a good night’s sleep. And even if that wasn’t so, police officers are not personal bodyguards; they can’t be around to prevent every single crime.

Crime like the kidnapping that would have occurred in Naples, Florida last week if Elizabeth Easterly, a clerk at a convenient store, hadn’t had a gun.

Easterly was apparently alone in the store with her two young daughters when a man who was “acting erratically” walked in, demanded money, grabbed the younger child and headed towards the door.

So Easterly shot him, saving her daughter from who knows what. If she hadn’t had that gun and the nerve to use it…? Well, the news annals are filled with examples of what could have happened.

And that’s unfortunately exactly the point. Criminals automatically hold power over law-abiding citizens because they have more resources to work with: both legal and illegal.

Guns don’t always solve that problem, but they do oftentimes lessen the negative consequences or even prevent them altogether because they put power back into the hands of those who should have it in the first place.

A thief is much less likely to steal from a store with a gun-toting clerk. The same goes for rapists, murderers and other undesirables… including corrupted governments.

The United Nations on North Korea: It’s the Thought That Counts

When it comes to the United Nations, expecting inanity is like expecting the sun to rise. There’s always a chance it might not happen, but it’s infinitesimal.

Today in particular though, the organization outdid even itself in demonstrating exactly what is wrong with political thought today. The Associated Press reports:

“Wealthier countries need to put aside politics to help millions of North Koreans going hungry from food shortages, the U.N.’ top relief official said Friday, renewing an appeal for assistance that has largely gone unmet.

“Speaking at the end of a five-day visit to North Korea, Valerie Amos, a U.N. undersecretary-general, said millions of North Koreans, particularly children, mothers and pregnant women, need help. The millions of hungry, she said, is borne out by UN data and by what she learned from visits to farms, hospitals and orphanages, as well as from officials.

“People’s diets, she said, consist of rice, maize cabbage, little else and no protein or nutrient rich foods.

“While she acknowledged concerns about whether the authoritarian government diverts food aid or underfunds agriculture, Amos urged donor countries to put the needs of North Koreans ahead of other considerations.

“‘This is about helping the people who are most in need. It’s not about saying that this country has made a choice about spending its resources in one way rather than another. We don’t make those judgments in other countries, on humanitarian grounds. There’s no reason to begin to do it in’ North Korea, Amos told the Associated Press before leaving Pyongyang.”

A recent news story illustrated just how bad things are over there with a photo of two malnourished North Korean children sharing a hospital bed, covered in bright purple marks. Adorable as they still were, the image of them suffering was literally sickening.

Yet even so, there are other factors to be taken into consideration, no matter how much politicians might like to think and act otherwise. The fact that any resources sent probably won’t reach their intended targets poses an enormous problem, as does the fact that, if the relief miraculously does arrive, it will be temporary at best.

It might put people in happy places to pretend otherwise, but politics not only plays a huge part in this disturbing picture, it is the main cause and sustention of it! And until North Korea denounces its poor practices, nothing is really going to change.

The United Nations, as usual, is leading the way by denouncing reality. And, as usual, little good will likely come of it.

Dear Messiah College: An Open Letter from a 2006 Alumnus

Dear Messiah College,

I just received an email from a respected fellow 2006 alumnus informing me that you un-invited a Conservative writer from speaking on campus who might be “problematic,” but still allowed Frances Fox Piven to visit, a self-described Marxist and socialist who used her opportunity at Messiah to call the Tea Party racist and uphold the Occupy Wall Street movement as honorable, despite the latter’s short but noteworthy history of:

· Anti-Semitism (click here for supporting article)
· Illegal drug use (click here for supporting article)
· Public disorderliness (click here for supporting article)
· Preaching violence (click here for supporting article)
· Indecent exposure to minors (click here for supporting article)
· Threatening a former president with extreme violence (click here for supporting video)
· A complete lack of open-mindedness or manners (click here for supporting video)
· General inanity (click here for supporting video)

And are also allegedly tainted by:

· Spitting on members of the U.S. military (click here for supporting article)
· Rape (click here for supporting article)

After completing four years at your school, I am unfortunately well aware that you do not encourage or respect dissenting opinions that come from the political right. While I can easily recount various professors who blatantly abused their positions to preach their political opinions during class time (occasionally for 20 minutes or more), I will only point out the chapel where Messiah College invited an anti-war demonstrator to speak about how anybody who supported the Iraq War was not a Christian. So I am not at all surprised by this latest invite (and un-invite).

If Messiah College had any professional or academic decency, it would be ashamed of itself for obnoxiously preaching one ideology instead of encouraging students to think for themselves. However, I know better than to expect such integrity from your institution. Please know, however, that I will not be sending Messiah College any money in the future, and will make it a point now to openly advise potential students away from your facilities, as they can get the same unbalanced education at far less cost elsewhere.

Sincerely,

Jeannette DiLouie

What We Can Expect from Muslim Extremists and the Occupy Wall Street Crowd

Let’s see if we can somehow tie in two completely different but still destructive groups – Muslim extremists and Occupy Wall Street – together in one well-trimmed blog post.

Think it can’t be done? Well, watch and learn, grasshopper. Watch and learn…

Let’s start out with radical Islam’s role in the story of Gilad Schalit, an Israeli soldier who spent the last five years in the hands of Hamas.

Schalit was just released in a prisoner exchange swap brokered by Egypt, where Israel gave up 1,000 prisoners, including many convicted terrorists. This insanely unbalanced trade illustrates all too well how they expect us to behave: by bending over backwards.

And even then, there were strings attached, since Egypt first forced the captive into an interview in order to air Muslim grievances. Some of the questions they asked included: “There are more than 5,000 Palestinians in Israeli jails; will you help campaign for their release?” and “What has the experience brought you? Has it made you stronger?”

Since the Obama administration, is all about kowtowing for political points, first it favored the deal and now it’s backtracking a bit. (And then there’s also the little incident of Ali Reza Shahsavari, who started shouting mid-flight to Kansas City: “You’re all going to hell! Allahu Akbar!” which is quickly dismissed as an isolated incident instead of yet another example of how much these people hate us.)

But this situation proves exactly why traditional U.S. policy is to not negotiate with terrorists: because they always come back looking for more, like they already are in the case of Israeli-American and falsely accused spy Illan Grapel… who might be released from his Egyptian prison if Israel hands over another 80 terrorists.

Clearly, neither deal is fair. But that’s how Muslim extremists roll. That’s how they prefer it.

For that matter, the same goes for Occupy Wall Street: all take and no real give.

(Nice tie-in, right? Right?)

They’re peachy keen forcing others to share their property (i.e. wealth) but when their $5,500 Macbook gets stolen, suddenly it’s theft. Can anybody say hypocritical? (Does anybody think OWSers might know what the multi-syllabic, non-curse word means?)

Of course, this is also the group that hosts such people as men who expose themselves to children (Occupy Seattle), rapists or the kind of women who don’t mind falsely crying rape (Occupy Cleveland), and people who support storming hospitals (Occupy Atlanta).

With actions like that, they might as well just go join Hamas. They’d fit right in.

“Racist” Herman Cain Is Driving the Liberal Left Batty… Not That They Weren’t Already

Dig around in Yahoo a little bit and you’ll stumble onto an article by Kim Jacobs Walker titled “Herman Cain Proves Minorities Can Be Racist Too.”

The title alone speaks to Walkers overwhelming ignorance. And the rest of the piece just accentuates it:

“Political correctness is not Herman Cain’s strong suit. In fact, he seems perfectly comfortable dismissing black voters as ‘brainwashed’ and also doesn’t mind alienating Hispanics by suggesting we should just electrocute people crossing the border illegally from Mexico.”

Not black voters: black Democrat voters. There are some on the other side too.

“The New York Times reports Cain has been talking up a hypothetical plan to enforce U.S. immigration law with a fence the length of the Mexican border that’s ‘20 feet high. It’s gonna have barbed wire on the top. It’s going to be electrified, and there’s going to be a sign on the other side saying: It will kill you – warning.’ He further suggests that armed militia men can take care of any intruders the fence doesn’t get.


“According to the 2010 U.S. Census, 12.6 percent of the population is black and 16.3 percent is Hispanic.”

Is it just me or is she seeming to imply that all of those 16.3 percent are illegals? Rather racist of her, huh?

“That leaves 71.1 percent of potential voters who don’t yet have reason to despise Cain. What next, honky jokes ala George Jefferson – maybe a few ‘gook’ or drunken Indian references.”

Ok now. I had to look up what a “honky” was and I’ve never heard of a “gook” at all. How do liberals even learn these terms? And what does it say about them that they do?

“Cain says his comments were just ‘a joke,’ but not everyone finds it funny.”

Personally, I wish he wasn’t joking, considering what Texas Department of Public Safety Director Steven McCraw just revealed: that there’s evidence six Mexican drug cartels are now recruiting American children as young as 11 to assist in their illegal operations.


“Brent Wilkes of the National Hispanic Leadership Agenda points out that ‘to suggest that they would be electrocuted or shot would be to treat them harsher than we treat murderers or rapists.’”

In that case, maybe we should up the penalty for murderers and rapists.

“To Cain perhaps this seems like harmless fun, but how quickly hateful words turn into hateful actions.”

Who says that Cain’s words were “hateful” in the first place? And if she’s so concerned about such nasty words, maybe she should go address the Occupy Wall Street crowd, whose various members in various cities have called for George Bush’ execution, shouted anti-Semitic slurs, and swore people up and down who disagree with them.

“In times of economic distress racism becomes stronger as people look for someone to blame for their misfortune. Most illegal immigrants have menial jobs. They are the maids and laborers. They do the jobs most Americans don’t want.”

A common liberal line but in Lancaster, PA – where I grew up – it’s teenagers who do much of the nasty, sweaty crop harvesting. And the illegal immigrants are in the restaurants… taking jobs away from other youngsters trying to save up for college. Who is to say that wouldn’t be true elsewhere if more positions were open?

“Since they are here illegally, they are afraid to go to the police when they are robbed, and they can’t complain when the boss violates the labor laws that protect the rest of us.”

Since they’re here illegally, they don’t deserve the protection of the police or our laws.

“Cain is after all only echoing the growing anti immigrant sentiment. He is certainly not the only Republican candidate to do so, but Cain takes it further than most. Why so bold? If a white candidate said these things his campaign would be over. As a minority Cain enjoys more latitude to work outside the boundaries of political correctness.”

And whose fault is that? Oh, right: Liberals!

“Does he think that just because he’s black, no one will dare call him a racist?”

No. He knows that just because he’s a conservative, people will call him a racist.

Fortunately, Herman Cain has the integrity and the spine to not back down.

Herman Cain 2012!

Occupy Wall Street’s Message: Blah Blah Blah, Chirp Chirp, Beep Beep

I really don’t like the winter. In fact, I dislike it so much that I refuse to complain when it’s a hundred-plus degrees outside… just because I’m happy that it isn’t the opposite.

Yet right now, this staunchly pro-summer advocate is begging God for plummeting temperatures nationwide… just because it would drive the Occupy Wall Street protesters back into their comfy, capitalism-paid homes so that I don’t have to listen to their pointless, oftentimes non-existent – yet always loud and obnoxious – messages.

Until God sees fit to answer my prayers though, they’re sure to stay busy hiring lawyers to openly blackmail the New York City legal system. NYDailyNews.com reports:

“Lawyers representing about 800 Occupy Wall Street protesters arrested in the past month demand that prosecutors drop the charges. If not, they say they won’t deal and will insist on going to trial – putting pressure on the already overloaded Manhattan criminal courts.


“‘I’d like to suggest to the DA’s office the appropriate way to deal with these cases is outright dismissal,’ said defense lawyer Martin Stolar. ‘The leverage is, we take them all to trial.’”

Meanwhile, their free comrades are – as usual – making little sense apart from their very clear vulgarities. For example, down in Denver, they’re advocating taking “the thirteen families that own the world – including George Bush and his administration – get them in front of the White House and hang them and shoot them because they deserve that.”

It’s no wonder such vindictive nonsense is inspiring China – a communist country and therefore one based on vindictive nonsense – to chime in with equally confusing drivel. Liu Weimin, one of China’s foreign ministry spokesmen said:

“We feel that there are issues here that are worth pondering. We have also noticed that in the media there has also been a lot of commentary, discussion and reflection. But we think that all of these reflections should be conducive to maintaining the sound and steady development of the world economy.”

Huh?

Obama, however, says he gets it all. And if Martin Luther King Jr. was alive today, he says the American icon would “remind us that the unemployed worker can rightly challenge the excesses of Wall Street without demonizing all who work there.”

Of course, our dear leader didn’t stop there though. He continued, saying, “Those with power and privilege will often decry any call for change as divisive. They’ll say any challenge to the existing arrangement are unwise and destabilizing. Dr. King understood that peace without justice was no peace at all.”

Which is why I’m hoping for an Obama-free 2013 even more than I’m hoping for winter.

America's Occupy Wall Street Movement Is Several Steps Behind Europe

If you go to Yahoo this morning, you might catch a news story proclaiming that the Occupy Wall Street movement is going global.

But let’s face it, America is actually late to the game this time around, since protesters have been demanding the right to free… well…everything!… in Greece, England, Italy and France for months now.

In fact, we’re not only late to the game, we’re far, far behind it!

Sure, Occupy Wall Street protesters have defiled lower Manhattan with their garbage – both physical and metaphorical – and ineffectively tried to beat up Wall Street “villains.”

Yup, Occupy Denver protesters defied an order to clear out from the Capitol area, where they were encamped for days, making an even bigger nuisance out of themselves than they already are.

And ok, Occupy Boston members may have harassed and spat upon a U.S. Coast Guard officer in uniform. But David Pendleton, a spokesman for that local chapter, doesn’t even want to claim those men as part of his group and even went out of his way to apologize for their actions if Occupy Boston was at all involved.

Clearly, they’re not the leaders of any worldwide anti-capitalist, pro-socialist drive behaving like that.

Europe, on the other hand – with its still not-so-distant bouts of full-fledged communism – knows where it’s at. When Europeans protest capitalism, they burn busses and attack police in full riot gear and overturn trashcans and ransack stores and cars and cause millions and billions in damage to both the private and public sectors.

And that is why the Occupy Wall Street movement can’t really claim any originality. It’s merely a less showy – though perhaps more tenacious, depending on how you look at it – version of European madness.

And let’s hope it stays that way.

President Obama, the Obama Administration and Obama Zombies Are All Insane

If you’re too busy to read an entire blog post this morning, I can sum it up quite easily, without giving numerous examples to prove my already proven points:

President Obama, the Obama administration and Obama Zombies are all insane.

We can argue for a very long time whether Obama is incompetent or intentional in his atrocious handling of practically everything. But either way, he and his are still nuts, deranged, off their rockers, separated from reality, cracked, batty, out of their minds…

You get the picture.

There’s no other way to look at it. But if you want to waste your time trying, then consider these facts:

  • President Obama apparently wanted to not only bow to his Japanese counterparts back in 2009, he also wanted to apologize to them for the U.S. dropping atom bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki to end the Pacific side of WWII … even though Japan was far from an innocent victim in that conflict.
  • Oh yeah, and he apparently thinks the answer to America’s problems is to build more Latino-themed national parks and order 248 counties in the U.S. to provide bilingual ballots to Hispanics for election 2012. Can anyone say desperate?
  • Despite this PC mentality of embracing everything and everyone in love, not war, President Obama has publicly sympathized with Occupy Wall Street Protesters, who are calling for war against capitalists and an uprising of anti-Semitism.
  • And speaking of Occupy Wall Street, the equally insane New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, just days after announcing protesters could stay indefinitely, told the ridiculous rabble-rousers that they needed to scram by Friday.
  • Meanwhile, fellow flip-flopping moron Joe Biden – who earlier this month declared that the economy was just peachywarned that rape and murder rates – fueled by a poor economy – could easily go up if Obama’s “jobs bill” didn’t pass.
  • So since it didn’t pass, better stay indoors until the next administration is able to fix the economy. Either that or wait for Warren Buffett, “President Obama’s pet billionaire,” as Human Events’ John Hayward so aptly calls him, decides to cough up the $2 billion he owes in back taxes. If he does, I’m sure that the current leadership will use it to prevent such heinous acts in the future.
Just like they turned the economy around with all of that stimulus spending.

Newsflash: None of those political actions or opinions have much to do with logic. Therefore, logically speaking, they are insane.

And so are the people behind them.

Maryland Representative and House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer Blames Voters for America’s Problems… and Conveniently Ignores His Own Culpability

Blaming Republicans for everything – even in the face of overwhelming evidence that this is a Democrat-run mess of an economy – is getting old with a lot of voters. And tone-deaf Democrats might actually be finally – kinda, sorta, maybe – getting the message.

My own state of Maryland’s Representative Steny Hoyer – who also just happens to be House Minority Whip – had this to say the other day:

“The American people have every right to be angry [and] disappointed by the performance of the Congress. Of course, the American people have also elected people with hard stances, so that to some degree, the American people are realizing the results of their votes.


“If elections have consequences – which I think they do – some of those consequences are getting what you vote for. In this case, many people voted for people who thought compromise was not something that they ought to participate in.”

As with most liberal speeches, I can easily rip his comments to shreds.

Let’s start with his admission that America has “every right” to be ticked off with Congress. He’s part of Congress, isn’t he? Therefore we have “every right to be angry [and] disappointed” with him. It’s logic 101.

Then there’s his accusation that “we’ve elected people with hard stances.” Yeah, well, when we screwed up so badly in 2008 by electing people with unwaveringly appalling stances, we had to do something to combat their blatant disregard for American ideals, American rights and American citizens in general.

And if those “elected people with hard stances” refuse to back down from protecting their constituents, then more power to them! In fact, let’s get more of them in office… and less of the likes of Steny Hoyer, who says really stupid, Joe Biden-esque things like “If elections have consequences – which I think they do…”

Really Steny? You think “elections have consequences?” Where’dja learn such smart thinkin’? Did the American education system teach ya that?

Since his final comment about “compromise” simply parrots his previous statement about “hard stances,” I think it’s safe to leave my commentary at this point with a final thought:

The whole thing is pathetic.

On so many levels.

Occupy Wall Street and a Tree House in Virginia

Who’s sick of hearing about the Occupy Wall Street group, with their underdeveloped ability to reason and their distaste for law and order, not to mention basic sanitary needs?

I know that I am.

I’m sick of them dominating the news. I’m sick of reading about irresponsible politicians coddling them instead of calling them terrorists like they would – and have! – the Tea Party (*cough* *cough* *New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg*). I’m even sick of hearing how they got themselves arrested!

Now, don’t get me wrong: If they want to behave so poorly that even liberal cities like Boston and the Big Apple feel the need to lock them up, that’s all well and good. Heck, throw away the key for all I care! Just stop telling me about it everywhere I turn!

With that plea in mind, let’s not talk about them. Let’s talk about ridiculous restrictions instead: the kind that the Occupy Wall Street crowd is so certain big business is putting on the lower classes, when it’s really big government holding the reins… and the whip.

Right now, down in Virginia, a middle class family is fighting for their right to build a tree house on their own property. Apparently they made the mistake of setting it up in the front yard for their two young boys instead of the back yard.

(Insert gasp of shock and horror!)

And in Falls Church, Virginia, you need a permit to do any such thing, which the Grapins didn’t know until after completing the tree house.

(The diabolical fiends!)

Occupy Wall Street demonstrators and supporters might want to ponder this bizarre case and what it heavily implies…

That a government system controlling enough to regulate the placement of a tree house is just as capable – and even more likely – of messing around in its citizens lives in more meaningful ways.

Occupy Wall Street Gains the Approval of Iran and Hugo Chavez

The Occupy Wall Street “movement” just picked up a few more noteworthy supporters.

Our own FORMER Speak of the House, Nancy Pelosi (Why does it never get old to write that?), and more-than-likely soon-to-be former President Barack Obama and his embarrassment of a running mate, Vice President Joe Biden, have all offered words of praise for the supposedly grassroots, left-wing group.

But now Venezuelan socialist dictator Hugo Chavez and even members of the Iranian military – who don’t speak out without the support of their sadistic, freedom-repressing government leaders – are offering up good wishes to Occupy Wall Streeters.

Just out of curiosity, what does that say when Iran – a country that just sentenced one of its own to a year in jail and 90 lashes for pointing out the obvious: that citizens there lack basic freedoms of expression – supports your movement?

Somehow, I don’t think that it says anything good. But that’s just me.

Personally, I much prefer to be associated with reasonable, intelligent men like GOP presidential contender Herman Cain, a man who used logic to call it like he sees it.

When a reporter asked him his opinion on the Occupy Wall Street demonstrations, he first pointed out that, “Wall Street didn’t write these failed economic polices. The White House did.” And then he followed that statement up with a perfectly reasonable question: “Why don’t you move the demonstrations to the White House?”

Good question, right? But don’t expect an answer from the protesters. They’re too busy chanting at each other very oddly, as they did in Occupy Atlanta, or having sex in public, defecating on police cars and making a general nuisance of themselves in New York City.

I really wouldn’t be surprised if their supporters were also involved in the dangerous bleach fight at my local Wal-Mart, which I will not be patronizing ever again. And they’d probably riot just as easily for Connecticut prisoners’ right to pornography as they are against what they see as corporate greed.

They’re just that mature. And ridiculous.

Friday Fun with Joe Biden and His Continuously Dumb Comments

Even in this dreadful economy with its 9.1% unemployment and the worst housing crisis since the Great Depression, there are still some guarantees that America – and the world – can rely on…

· Winters are colder than summers (despite the supposed certainty of global warming).
· Communism doesn’t work, as poor North Koreans are finding out the hard way.
· Joe Biden can always be counted on to say something really, really stupid.

That last one is perhaps the most constant out of the three, which says something considering how practically unbeatable the other bets are.

And he didn’t disappoint on Thursday during an interview, where he ardently claimed that Obama and he “have turned it around” when questioned about the U.S. economy. Clearly, he doesn’t pay attention to what his Commander-in-Chief says though because, if he did, he would have known that Obama recently admitted Americans are not “better off than they were four years ago.”

Not to be outdone by his own self, Biden went on to compare the Occupy Wall Street group to the Tea Party. “The Tea Party started why? TARP. They thought it was unfair – we were bailing out the big guy,” he said.

So… by his own admission, his big government policies favor the “big guy” over the little guy? Thanks for clarifying that Joe. We couldn’t have done it withoutcha.

Ok, yes we could have. But you do make it so much easier to recognize that we’re right and you’re an idiot.

Herman Cain Stands Up to Wall Street Protestors and Stands Out for It

Pandering to fools and criminals is usually inadvisable.

That’s one of the many reasons why I like Herman Cain so much. Concerning the Occupy Wall Street protestors – mostly a bunch of ignorant college students with nothing better to do than wallow in stupidity – the GOP 2012 presidential candidate said this:

“Don’t blame Wall Street, don’t blame the big banks. If you don’t have a job and you’re not rich, blame yourself. It is not someone’s fault if they succeeded, it is someone’s fault if they failed.”

That message might seem harsh but, considering its targets, it’s actually pretty accurate. These people are so set on casting blame for the poor economy – largely brought on by the president they all doubtlessly voted for – that they’re causing even more trouble for “the little people” they purport to be standing up for… as evidenced by their disruption of NYC traffic on the Brooklyn Bridge last week.

Really, it’s a shame that more of our leaders aren’t willing to take that “harsh” stance with other troublemakers. Instead, they pander to them.

Ohio officials, for instance, just banned all pork products from prison menus after a Muslim inmate filed a lawsuit against the state, demanding that non-pork meats be prepared in accordance to Shariah law.

Seriously? Seriously.

Meanwhile, our president is busy screwing over non-criminal citizens adhering to a different religion. Under new Obamacare regulations, all private health plans will have to cover sterilizations and even abortion-inducing contraceptives.

That means that American Catholics – and, when it comes to abortion, their Protestant counterparts – will have to buy insurance that runs counter to their beliefs. No exceptions, exchanges or refunds.

Yet this same administration apparently gets pretty testy when its own stances are criticized. CBS News investigative journalist Sharyl Attkisson, who is covering the horribly botched Fast and Furious gun-running scheme – which allowed Mexican drug cartels to illegally purchase guns in the U.S., resulting in the deaths of both Mexicans and Americans alike – says government officials have been less than polite on the subject.

She said that, “The DOJ [Department of Justice] woman was just yelling at me. The guy from the White House on Friday night literally screamed at me and cussed at me.”

Classy, huh? It makes Herman Cain’s comments seem even more reasonable, doesn’t it?

BET’s Robert Johnson Calls Obama out on Taxing the Rich and Tells Him How It Is

For as much headway as President Obama and his fellow liberals have made inciting hatred towards “the rich,” let’s face it: Everybody wants to be in that category. So it’s all too easy to push that desire into envy, envy into jealousy, and jealousy into loathing, as if that insidious emotion will somehow hurt “the rich” and elevate “the poor.”

As if the decades-long War on Poverty hasn’t already proven the theory dead wrong.

From my own lower middle class perspective, I can tell you flat-off that I would love to have more money to throw around as I chose. If I were one of “the rich,” I’d move out of my apartment with its deadbeat landlord, pay off my student loans and buy a new car. I’d get a new bed, new comforter, buy up all of the available seasons of In Plain Sight, shell out enough money to attract the attention of prominent publishing companies so that I could finally publish my stories, take a few amazing trips around the world, pay off my siblings’ college debt, pay off my parents’ mortgage, donate a significant amount of money to worthwhile charities… and the list goes on.

But you know what? I’m not one of “the rich.” Yet. So instead of wasting my time reviling people who already are successful, I’m going to focus on changing myself… pursuing my dreams and making do with what I have until I can get there… rather like BET (Black Entertainment Television) founder Robert Johnson.

For (I’m assuming) a liberal (you don’t create something as godless as BET – or MTV, VH1 or any of their contemporary pop culture platforms, for that matter – unless you’re a liberal), Johnson hit the nail on the head when he went on “FOX News Sunday” to say:

“Well, I think the president has to recalibrate his message [about soaking the rich]. You don’t get people to like you by attacking them or demeaning their success. You know, I grew up in a family of 10 kids, first one to go to college, and I’ve earned my success. I’ve earned my right to fly private if I choose to do so.

“And by attacking me, it is not going to convince me that I should take a bigger hit because I happen to be wealthy… I’ve tried poor and I tried rich and I like rich better. It doesn’t mean that I am a bad guy.

“I didn’t go into business to create a public policy success for either party, Republican or Democrat. I went in business to create jobs and opportunity, create opportunity, create value for myself and my investors. And that’s what the president should be praising, not demagoguing us simply because Warren Buffet says he pays more than his secretary. He should pay the secretary more and she will pay more.”

And there it is: Obama’s “Tax the Rich” campaign shattered in three succinct paragraphs… at least for anybody who understands and appreciates logic.

Iranian Pastor Youcef Nadarkani Now Accused of Rape Instead of Christian Apostasy

Right now, there is a man – Pastor Youcef Nadarkani – who is on death row in Iran for being a Christian, leading Christian services, and converting people to the Christian faith.

Under Shariah Law, the law based off of a strict adherence to the Koran, none of this permissible.

Of course, according to any even semi-rational, civilized nation, practicing Christianity – or Islam or Buddhism or any other religion for that matter, just as long as it does not tread on other people’s rights – is perfectly acceptable. And so Pastor Nadarkani’s plight has gained international attention.

Now this case has been going on since last November, when the 32-year-old was arrested for apostasy (i.e. sharing his faith). And when he appealed to the Iranian Supreme Court, he was found guilty yet again for “turning his back on Islam” and “converting Muslims to Christianity,” and sentenced to death by hanging.

Yet only now, after increasing pressure from world leaders and organizations, Iran’s state-controlled media is claiming that Nadarkhani isn’t condemned to death for his Christianity at all, but for rape and extortion.

Now anybody who knows anything about strict Islamic practices, the kind that Iran most definitely adheres to, automatically knows that the first charge is a joke. Sure, rape in Iran is punishable by death… for the victim.

Women and girls who are sexually assaulted in Shariah Law-abiding areas of the Islamic world are far too often charged with adultery, a capital offense. And even if they never make it to court to plead their innocence, their male family members are considered well within their rights to simply take them out and shoot them for violating family honor, as if the victims had any say in the matter.

This is Shariah Law, America. It’s important that we understand what it is before we wholeheartedly welcome it into our schools, our government and our society like too many people are already pushing for… both the ignorant and the very well-informed.
