Government Gone Mad – ObamAd, Inc is So Screwed Up

leave a comment »

I swear, the White House and Barack Obama’s entire foreign policy people are sick in the head. Deranged and totally clueless with a sincere loss of perspective.

As I read the news, I keep seeing more and more nonsense – it’s like someone just opened the spigot and let all the stupidity just dump on in. Perhaps I’m just overly sensitivie to it, but let me see if I have this right:

We give up five high-priority prisoners, very valuable detainees that had a lot of clout with our enemy,

because we are so concerned over a guy who is basically a disgrace to his uniform – a suspected deserter and a Coast Guard washout…

Image

yet…

We leave behind an honorable Marine in Mexico in a brutal stinking hole for simply making a wrong turn, in possession of lawfully purchased weapons, and ended up on the south side of the border.

Image

President Obama tries to utter the words, “leave no man behind”, like he even has the honor to make such a statement, yet he left four to die in Benghazi, including our ambassador.

Image

And while Sgt. Tahmooressi sits in a cell, held and potentially being mistreated by the Federalis, we collect up lots and lots of illegal refugees because the President refuses to control the border.

Image

Then Crazy Uncle Joe goes on record saying, “We need it badly from a purely — purely economic point of view”. So in other words, we use cheap illegal foreign labor to fill jobs and keep costs yet we still have a glut of Americans who need to work.

Image

(yet, these same idiots want to raise the minimum wage which kills jobs and puts more people out of work – but that’s domestic policy)

And this just in – a group of bikers are now set out to go retrieve Sgt. Tahmooressi. Good hunting, guys.

Also this week, we’re sitting back watching more and more cities fall in Iraq to the Islamo-facist insurgents – a decade of work done by our military being undone because we refuse to do anything about it now. But then, I can’t say that’s our problem, since it’s clear that the Iraqis are more interested now at squandering the freedoms they had. But sadly, many of our guys are awaiting medical attention while VA senior executives rake in bonuses – money that could be spent on our boys in civilian hospitals, if the VA were that backlogged.

I swear this administration is so screwed up in the head. And it’s like they don’t care. They…just…don’t…care.

Or is this how we “fundamentally transform the United States of America”? By taking a steaming poo on the Constitution and change American exceptionalism into global mediocrity?

I keep saying it – the Founders would have already started shooting over this stuff.

This is pretty creepy, and with it being All Hallows Day, even more so.  However, would anyone consider this video to be less creepy:  Watch Here

Mr. Vice President, please refrain from ever saying the word “load”…..ever.

Veep Debate – Could Have Been Better

leave a comment »

Well, I’m glad to see that the Veep debate wasn’t as much of a waste as I had previously thought. The polls and pundits are calling for a narrow Biden win over Ryan or a draw. If by win, we mean how many times we saw grumpy, old Uncle Joe interrupt the moderator and his opponent, then yeah, Biden won. But Biden basically used his constant interrupting and snarky-snark to win, in the absence of real facts. Once again, he kept trumping up the “five trillion” number and pontificating that people should “use some common sense”.

Still though, I do have to say that Biden did do one thing positive – he was able to at least not further the damage to Obama through horrible debate skill, not to say that Biden was saying anything really of note. Anyway, here are a couple of my observations:

1) Biden kept playing the “use some common sense” card, particularly during the Medicare debate. To me, this is more of an Appeal to Common Belief fallacy. The issue is that the bandwagon beliefs of Medicare are what got us here in the first place. Medicare needs to be overhauled, not maintained. Biden goes out there and tries to frighten people into thinking that seniors will lose their coverage under the Romney/Ryan plan, completely disregarding the 55-and-over pledge.

I think Ryan’s scare retort was pretty lame because it showed that Ryan didn’t have a complete answer to rebut what Biden was saying. The mark of skilled debate comes from actually rebutting points that the opposition makes. Biden and Ryan both were throwing out talking points rather than debating things. That’s what made me pass out on the couch from boredom.

And after I woke up, I caught the rest on YouTube…

2) Biden made the point regarding how he was this devout Roman Catholic and “accepted the position of the Church” with respect to abortion, but “wouldn’t impose his beliefs on others”. To me, this is two big bunches of malarkey, as he would put it.

  • There is no way a politician can serve without imposing some standard of morality on others. His sense of morality drives him to class warfare – that it is somehow immoral for rich people to make too much money, seeking instead to take that money and give it to the poor.  This is kinda ironic, given his paltry charitable donations as compared to his income.
  • Biden says he “accepts the Church’s position  but that is a far cry from personally believing in the position that life begins at conception. If he did, then he would also agree with the Church’s position on abortion itself, that all human life must be “protected absolutely”. According to the Catechism of the Catholic Church, part 3, section 2, chapter 2, article 5, 2272 says “Formal cooperation in an abortion constitutes a grave offense.”

Since Mr. Biden refuses to stand against abortion in his position as vice-president, it’s my belief that he is in discord with this position. Not very good as a “practicing Catholic”, since the Church considers it gravely contrary to moral law.  In other words, I wouldn’t exactly think of him to be Opus Dei material.

Other than that, I wasn’t overly impressed with this debate. I thought it was going to be more of a fireworks show, but it was more like a fizzle.

Well, Romney and Obama are back at it this Tuesday. ObamaAd, Inc promises that Barack will be in better form. I hope so, that way, Romney has someone to actually talk to, rather than sleepy Obama or boring Jim Lehrer.

Michelle Obama’s Pep Tour

leave a comment »

Today, Michelle Obama and Jill Biden are in Colorado Springs, dragging her entourage around at probably a pretty high cost to American taxpayers, to Fountain-Ft. Carson, on the south side of Colorado Springs.  Why are these two here?  To support military families, right?

What a joke.  If Michelle really wanted to support military families, she should tell her husband that he was wrong for electing to not pay the military during a government shutdown over keeping Planned Parenthood from collecting their due.  Instead, she’s going around talking about how much the military inspires her.  Is that just happen to be a follow-on from her actually learning to be proud of her country?

So, amidst all the fan-fare that surrounds the news, the real news is from the comments of those in the Springs, specifically parents who were told to keep their youngsters home because they didn’t fit the look and image.  Now we all know that the White House determines, in advance, the kinds of people, the numbers, and the like come to these things.  This tells me it’s only really about politics and trying to bolster Obama’s image in the eyes of the military.

But again, these comments caught my eye, amidst the scores of hate comments from the locals shooting at each other.

  • My kids go there, my daughter was one of the few selected to actually be in the same room. My son, well he was asked not to come today because, well quite frankly, he didn’t fit the profile of the community they are trying to portray. haha what a farce.
  • This is NOT an equal opportunity for students. Students/parents were NOT picked "at random". I know some students were "excused" and "given the day off" or simply asked "not to come". (High risk? Behavior?)Only 10% of students will actually meet her, the rest will see her by video broadcast (YAWN)and will be sequestered in the gym or cafeteria for two or more hours (yeah, that will work well). I assure you teachers won’t be teaching; students won’t be learning. They are only scheduled to be in 3 classes today for 10 minutes each and lunch won’t be served until 12:30 to 2:00. Nothing will get done today but I’m sure those 60 "random" students" will enjoy it.

I kinda wish I knew what students got selected – which kids were good enough to be in the same room, which ones were sent to watch the thing in the cafeteria or auditorium via camera feed and which ones got a school-sponsored day off.

Interestingly, Jamie Hyneman, the beret-sporting star of Mythbusters  was Michelle’s opening act.  However, some students were more interested in seeing Hyneman then they were in seeing the First Lady.  Perhaps because Hyneman does real work for a living and can still entertain the American people, versus Michelle who really does neither.

Assorted Rabidity

with one comment

I’ve been in a generally foul mood lately.  Those that know me know I’ve not been a particularly fun person.  And once in a while, I have to let out some rabidity.  So, I’ve trolled through the news headlines to fine a list of things at which I can throw bricks.

1. According to Crazy Uncle Joe, Iraq is one of Barack Obama’s greatest achievements.  You have got to be kidding me.  The guy who campaigned on how much he was opposed to Iraq and everything about it, they guy who believed the surge would actually make Iraq worse, contrary to what happened, now deserves credit for it?  I swear, every time Biden opens his pie hole, the complete opposite of common sense comes out, like it’s some sort of anti-language.  And what was Obama thinking in making this dork our Vice-President, anyway.  Most of the time, the Veep is supposed to not say anything – just do his job.  Maybe, once in a while, give a speech at Columbia U. or something.  I sorta wish Biden would do neither.

2. Conservatives have been telling people for years – when you give away free money, you essentially are fertilizing corruption.  In Polk County, Florida, there was a plan in motion, which got kaboshed for now, to give disabled kids a free iPod Nano, courtesy of Uncle Sam and Presidents Bush and Obama.  The idea was interesting on paper, but when the parents filed to get the nifty device, the parent would keep it for themselves, rather than giving it to their kid.  Since it was a foregone that these kids wouldn’t have any idea that the Porkulus bill had a little somethin-somethin for them, well, no harm, no foul, and mom or dad get a new iPod player out of it.  Like we didn’t see THAT one, eh?  Nancy Woolcock, the assistant super at Polk County Schools thinks these kids deserve a free iPod, on our nickel.  So where’s MY free iPod?

3. Once again, Obama is “playing the middle” regarding tax increases.  I’m sure he realizes they are a completely bad idea in a recession, and he even campaigned on not raising taxes “not one penny”.  But now, he’s “agnostic”about sticking it to the middle class to reign in the federal budget.   Seems we’re closer now to seeing the middle class have to pay for the bloated spending of the government – their only crime was electing a collection of idiots who were effectively responsible for jacking up the bill. 

4. I used to like Bill Nye, the Science Guy.  He was hip, for being an egg-headed scientist.  He helped make science cool for kids.  However, today, he’s just another political hack liberal doofus.  Turns out, Nye now believes that if a person denies climate change, that somehow, the person is ‘unpatriotic’.  Lately, the ‘unpatriotic’ card has been thrown around a lot, saying that if one person doesn’t do this or that, that somehow, they don’t love their country enough.  To me, it’s like that high-maintenance girlfriend that says, “if you don’t buy me that $2000 purse or take me to the Caribbean, even if it breaks your bank account, then you don’t love your me”.  There is only one way to deal with a high maintenance girlfriend – kick her sorry rear to the curb and let her be someone else’s parasite.  Same solution here.

Nye also said that it’s easier to sell the theory of anthropogenic global warming to younger generations since ‘older people’ have a harder time with the concept.  Hey Bill Nye, I’ve got something for you – it’s called SCIENCE – maybe you’ve heard of it.  Science doesn’t need to be ‘sold’, just told.  We put it all on the table, not just the stuff we wanna hear, like that sideshow in Copenhagen a few months ago.  Older people don’t have a problem with the concept; it’s the lack of real proof and discourse that they don’t like.  Younger people can be more easily fooled by Al Gore’s carbon credit Snake Oil. 

Silly rabbit. Tricks are for kids.  (yeah, I meant to spell it that way)

5.  Finally, more big brother stuff.  Turns out that the Obama Administration is opting to track cell phones, citing the point that tracking cell phones does not violate the intents of the Fourth Amendment protections.  I sorta think it does, given that the Fourth Amendment was intended to protect people in their persons, homes, papers, and effects.  Since cellular phones have become a very personal device, it would seem very much so that they would be protected.  In fact, in 2008, the Electronic Frontier Foundation successfully argued before the federal court in Western Pennsylvania that the Government would require a warrant before a cell company would be required to release tracking records.  Of course, this amuses me because members within Obama Administration have gone through great lengths to express their displeasure with the Patriot Act, a number of provisions which have ventured dangerously close to the Fourth Amendment line.

I wonder if Big Sis Napolitano wants to use warrantless cell phone tracking to keep an eye on all of us conservatives, which, according to her, deserve to be on government watch lists.

Sigh – and just as I get this rabidity out, there are more things on which to comment.  Onwards and upwards, eh?
