It’s Halloween, so let’s keep with tradition here.
Bonus for this year, Ghostbusters!
“[Barack Hussein Obama] has contempt for the electorate. And, considering that it elected him, he has reason.”

As I have pointed out before, if you want to know what the left is up to, just check what they are accusing others of.
Case in point, the so-called “War on Women.”
While giving a get-out-the-vote speech at a Florence, South Carolina political event, Democrat gubernatorial candidate, State Senator Vincent Shaheen, told cheering fans of his opponent, sitting Republican governor Nikki Haley, “We are going to escort whore out the door.”
A so-called “reporter” at CNN by the name of Carol Costello, got on her high hobby horse in defense of “violence against women” when a football player got caught on camera, but she found the story of Bristol Palin being assaulted a source of humor. The hypocrisy of the left knows no bounds.
This double standard of the left, where they condone, and even support, violence against any woman who does not support their extremist agenda, is not new.
Why did I deserve it? Because I’m conservative, and to my liberal acquaintances, “conservative” is interchangeable with any number of fun words, like racist, homophobe, warmonger, and bigot. Even my best liberal friends have refuse to let go of these one-dimensional definitions despite the fact that a three-dimensional specimen has been disproving all of them throughout our friendship. So much for nuance.
In short, I deserved it because I’m a conservative (wink, wink, nudge, nudge.) And when you’re dealing with people as dastardly as conservatives, anything goes.
This same rationale allowed liberal acquaintances to giggle when Ann Coulter was attacked by two young men with pies and shrug as former Florida Secretary of State Katherine Harris was almost run over. NOW and NARAL would be holding weekly violence-against-women awareness marches if the same had happened to Maureen Dowd and Hillary Clinton.
There was the New York Times’ dreams of an assassination attempt on President Bush and Ted Rall’s double whammy hit on the mentally handicapped and Bush voters. But then came Condi Rice’s appointment to Secretary of State. What a goldmine that was!
Suddenly, racism was an acceptable political tool. Jokes about Mammies and big-lipped caricatures were en vogue. Most of us got the memo that our culture deems these kind of attacks to be about as reprehensible as they get. Liberal cartoonists and commentators got that memo too. But there was no retraction from them, and not a peep from the NAACP or NOW.
Why no outrage? Because Condi deserved it. She’s a conservative, you know.
Calling Condi “Brown Sugar” becomes a reasonable criticism because she is a member of the Bush administration. A physical attack on Coulter is a laughing matter because she is a hawk. Tailing a female acquaintance on a dark night becomes a funny joke because she’s conservative.
It seems to me that this is not the path to a civil political climate or national healing, both of which my liberal friends want. To me, my liberal friends and acquaintances are folks who are a little too soft on national defense and a little too heavy on the government programs for my taste. They do not deserve physical or racist attacks for that, and I do not laugh when they happen. I wish they felt the same way about me.

Let’s lead with Obama’s illegal “Fast and Furious” gun running operation. Read the whole thing, what the Obama White House has been claiming “executive privilege” over is all about the cover up of their illegal activities. This scandal has a large body count, and senior members of the Obama administration, including Valerie Jarrett, should be getting jail time for their involvement.
It’s has been obvious for a long time that the so-called “progressive” left is no fan of free speech. They are not just making it part of the official record.
Massachusetts democrat candidate for governor Martha Coakley is such a horrible candidate, that even the far left Boston Globe endorses Charlie Baker, her Republican opponent.
Speaking of far left wing newspapers, the Washington Post admits that not only is voter fraud widespread, it could even be the deciding factor in multiple elections.
Here is a clear example of a decline in economic literacy to start with.
In the early sixties, you had the head of the democrat party saying things like:
“…an economy hampered by restrictive tax rates will never produce enough jobs or enough profits.” — President John F Kennedy
Here in the early 21st Century, we have a former, and probably future democrat candidate for President spouting nonsense like this:
Really, she said that. What’s worse is the moonbats who actually believe this nonsense.
Let’s go to the video.
It’s not just HRC, back in 2010, another democrat was stumped by the question, “How do you create a job?”

You remember Christina “Tita” Ayala, the Connecticut state rep recently arrested on 19 counts of vote fraud. If you don’t, it probably because it didn’t get much news coverage. It didn’t promote the news media agenda on two counts. First, it was an actual case of vote fraud, which they constantly claim doesn’t happen, and she is a democrat.
This wasn’t an “isolated incident” either. Let us review some recent news.
‘Calibration error’ changes GOP votes to Dem in Illinois county. Let’s be honest here, it was perfectly “calibrated” for an election in democrat controlled Illinois. The only error was that someone actually complained about it.
Update: Mr. Reynolds makes the following true statement about democrats, “Remember, you don’t just have to beat them. You have to beat them beyond the margin of fraud.”
A Night in the Lonesome October by Roger Zelazny
A classic by the late Grandmaster. It is set in the month of October, which each day being a chapter. The story is told by Snuff, a watchdog, who like his companion Jack, is the owner of several Curses. One of Jack’s involves a large knife. Whenever there is a full moon on October 31, a group of people and their animal companions gather together and work toward a ritual on the night of the 31st. They are trying to either open or keep closed, a gateway for the Elder Gods (think Lovecraft). So far, the Closers have always won. Up until the end, it’s hard to tell who is an Opener and who is a closer, or even who is in the game. Others who are in the area with Snuff and Jack include: a vampire called “The Count” and his bat; a mad Russian monk and his snake, Crazy Jill and her black cat, the Great Dective and his sidekick; and Larry Talbot and his furry alter ego. Zelezny had a lot of fun with this book. If you can pick up a copy with the Gahn Wilson illustrations, you are in for a bonus treat.

Joe “Plugs” Biden’s son Hunter was booted out of the Navy for failing a mandatory drug test. In this case, he tested positive for cocaine. Hunter was only the Navy for about month before his illegal drug use was detected. He needed, not one, but two special waivers to enter the Naval Reserve in 2013. One for his age (i.e over 40), and one for his prior drug conviction. Waivers are usually given special skills in short supply, not “public relations”, which was Plugs Jr’s Navy job. It’s pretty clear that the only reason he got those waivers was that his dad is our Dear Leader‘s bullet proof vest. I’m kinda surprised that this story even ran the New York Times. I’m not surprised that they buried the story on page A22 of the print edition. If this had been the son of a senior Republican elected official, this would have been front page, above the fold news. The hypocrisy of the left knows no bounds.
Speaking of Presidents, AoSHQ shows how a President should behave. Here is a hint, it isn’t spending more time on the golf course than in intelligence briefings.
Back to one of Barry’s many, many scandals. Sharyl Attkinsson is still digging up fresh dirt on the Obama so called “Justice Department” illegally running firearms to Mexican drug cartels.
It’s good to know American still has real heroes. Example: Veteran stands up for 2nd Amendment at Chicago anti-gun forum
In democrat controlled Los Angeles, CA, police have been sending out patrol cars that collect the licence plate number of every car around them. These “Law Enforcement” agencies have refused to release any information about the data they have collected because, wait for it, every single car seen is under investigation. Really.
“Modern journalism is all about deciding which facts the public shouldn’t know because they might reflect badly on Democrats.”

“G.W. Bush was a fiscal loose cannon. Obama is a flaming fiscal train wreck colliding with a killer asteroid falling into a super massive black hole.”
