What is the democrats problem with simple facts?

Thursday, July 28th, 2011

Clearly, the shared reality of rational adults is not the strong point of democrats.

Case in point, democrat party “spokesperson” Debbie Wasserman-Schultz.  Ms. Wasserman-Schultz goes on a hysterical rant accusing the Congressional Republicans, who only control one half of one third of the Federal government, of trying to impose “dictatorship” by means of following the defined Constitutional process.

Let us review who actually desires to impose a “dictatorship” on the American people.  President Barack H. Obama recently addressed the far left extremist racist organization “La Rasa” and said the following, “Believe me, the idea of doing things on my own is very tempting.”

Let’s review the facts here, the democrats control the White House and the Senate, and are accusing the House Republicans, who only have a simple majority in the House, of trying to impose a “dictatorship.”  Sounds more like the democrats are being whiny little bitches now that they can’t shove their far left extremist agenda down the throats of the American people unopposed.  The democrats are falling back on their basic argument that anybody who dares to oppose them should “shut up” and let them implement their far left extremist agenda.  The problem with this argument is, as our Dear Leader pointed out, Elections Have Consequences‏. The 2010 elections were a resounding vote against the extremist policies of President Obama and the congressional democrats. Unfortunately for the congressional democrats and our Dear Leader, they have to live in the reality they reject.

“MSNBC’s Chris Matthews: President Obama is “doing what Reagan did.” Yeah – making people not want to re-elect a Democrat President.”

“The thing the most bone chilling thing Bill Ayers said to me was that after the revolution succeeded and the government was overthrown, they believed they would have to eliminate 25 million Americans who would not conform to the new order.”

“Because despite the efforts of the administration and its willing accomplices in the media, the belief that the auto bailouts were a success is simply a myth. Leave aside the obvious point that the government still stands to lose billions of dollars on its investment as well as many billions more from the preferential tax treatment of the reorganizations. Not only was the bailout unnecessary to save the American automotive industry but the politicized bankruptcy process left both General Motors and Chrysler in a weaker competitive position than if they had simply reorganized in a standard chapter 11 process.”

Violent Luddites

Tuesday, July 12th, 2011

Great post by Oleg Volk on violent Luddites.

Anti-gun activists have much in common with the original Luddites. They blame new technologies and users of those technologies for their own plight, and aren’t above using violence to achieve their goals. Luddites did their own killing, whereas “anti-gunners” — more “anti personal guns for ordinary people” in truth — try to use the ATF and other government agencies as their cat’s paw.

The rallying cry of the anti-gun bigots is usually “for reasonable gun control!” They claim that old, simple guns are just fine, it’s the new and extra deadly weapons and ammunition that are the evil incarnate.

Mr. Volk then goes on to illustrate what those who pay attention know, leftists are really bad at history.

Sunday SciFi: The Middleman

Sunday, July 10th, 2011

I’ve only caught a few episodes so far from this one season wonder, but so far I really like The Middleman and his Sidekick Wendy Watson. It’s delightfully low budget, in an old school Doctor Who way, funny, a tribute to the pulp era, and the cast is clearly having fun.

The Middleman himself is a clean cut, all American, milk drinking former Special Forces veteran with authority issues and what appears to be a id case with Doctor Who’s psychic paper in it.  Hmmmm….a Doctor Who/Middleman crossover.  I’m sure there is some fan fic out there that covers it.

It’s good low budget fun entertainment.  It’s got robots, gadgets, blasters, intelligent apes, the supernatural and a spunky sidekick that steals the show.

It didn’t run in a drive-in, so I don’t know what Joe-Bob Briggs would say, but my advice is to check it out.

Obama is channeling Nixon again

Sunday, July 10th, 2011

The money quote:

“This Obama Justice Department reminds me of nothing so much as the Nixon Justice Department. You have the scent of high-level knowledge of serious wrongdoing and you have the smell of cover-up and I think the stench of cover-up on this gun-running operation is very strong indeed.”

What did President Obama know and when did he know it?


Friday B-Movie Pick: Marked for Death

Marked for Death

Classic Steven Seagal from 1990. Yup, this flick is now old enought to buy booze. Great martial arts scenes though. Solid ‘don’t piss off the wrong DEA agent by making it personal’ plot line and plenty of gun-fu, but like the other three word title Seagal flicks from that era, it’s watching Seagal’s rough and tumble, definately not “hearts and flowers”, Aikido that makes the flick.
