Robert F. Kennedy Jr. Calls Senator Inhofe a ‘Prostitute’ and a ‘Call Girl’ – Will Media Be Outraged?

I’m thinking no.  It’s a leftist insulting a conservative.  No foul in the liberal media’s view.

The BCC reports on the effect the Obama economy is having on Americans.

… Tent cities have sprung up in and around at least 55 American cities – they represent the bleak reality of America’s poverty crisis.

… One of the largest tented camps is in Florida and is now home to around 300 people. Others have sprung up in New Jersey and Portland.

… There are an estimated 5,000 people living in the dozens of camps that have sprung up across America

The largest camp, Pinella’s Hope in central Florida – a region better known for the glamour of Disneyworld – is made up of neat rows of tents spread out across a 13-acre plot.

… The stark reality is that many of them are people who very recently lived comfortable middle-class lives

For them, the economic downturn came too fast and many have been forced to trade their middle-class homes for lives in shelters, motels and at the far extreme, tented encampments.

Obama To Congressional Democrats: Yeah, I Could Have As Much As $1 Billion in Campaign Cash But I’m Not Giving You A Dime Of It…


Mary Katharine Ham on leftist hypocrisy.

Cindy Sheehan on the democrat’s dishonest use of the anti-war movement for their political gain.
I’m betting that you never heard one peep from the liberal media about her being arrested, twice, protesting outside the White House, after GW Bush left and Barack Hussein Obama moved in.

Three Occupy Oakland protesters arrested for robbery and a hate crime, both felonies

“Congress has not unlimited powers to provide for the general welfare, but only those specifically enumerated. — Thomas Jefferson, third President of the United States of America

“[T]he politically correct are above the rules of ordinary civility, once they have identified you as an unbeliever in their religion.” — Orson Scott Card


Factual Observations about the US Federal Debt

Tuesday, March 6th, 2012

Let’s look at this data and what it shows.

• The vaunted “Clinton Surplus” was, in fact, the work of a GOP House that was willing to fight for fiscal sanity (current Ohio Governor John Kasich was one of the architects of the surplus); in addition, two events conspired toturbocharge the economy — in spite of Clinton, not because of him.

• Liberals like to talk about Reagan’s deficits, but they ignore the fact that every budget Reagan ever sent to the Democrat-controlled House was declared “dead on arrival”. Reagan supported a Balanced Budget Amendment, sought to eliminate useless agencies like the Department of Education, and otherwise believed in the U.S. spending within its means.

• Since the Democrats took control of Congress in 2007, they have jammed through the most fiscally irresponsible spending programs in world history (I won’t use the word “budget”, because they’ve refused to propose a budget for roughly 1,029 days).

In short, Democrats never propose less spending than Republicans — unless we’re talking about defense. And now, after four years of Democrat-controlled spending, the federal government is forced to borrow 40 cents for every dollar it spends.

The “anti-war” “left” was used by the Democratic Party. I like to call it the “anti-Republican War” movement.

While I agree with you about the hypocrisy of such sites as the DailyKos, I have known for a long time that the Democrats are equally responsible with the Republicans. That’s why I left the party in May 2007 and that’s why I ran for Congress against Nancy Pelosi in 2008.

Cindy Sheehan

How did the tolerant and opened mined liberals in the far left extremist Nancy Pelosi’s district react to Ms. Sheehan running against their sitting Congressional rep?

They slashed the tires on Cindy Sheehan’s van.

Friday B-Movie Pick: Digital Assassin

Digital Assassin

Way back when, I was working on some of the first commercial grade digital movie servers. One of our customers was a large pay for view service, so as part of the testing process, I had to watch a lot of B-Movies. This turkey was one of them. It has since be released under a new name, probably in an attempt to get anybody to watch it who wasn’t required to, like I was. So if you run across Cyberjack, same movie. Makes your typical B-Movie look like a snooty art film. Quick summary, Michael Dudikoff plays an alcoholic ex-cop haunted by the criminal who killed his partner. He is currently working as the alcoholic janitor of a high tech research facility that produces sophisticated computer viruses. The facility is taken over by a criminal gang lead by, yup, you guessed it, the same criminal who haunts the janitor’s cheap booze soaked nightmares. The drunken janitor must face his fears and remember all the training in close quarters urban combat with assault rifles that he learned as a rookie street cop and save the day. Brion James plays the criminal in question and delivers the best acting in the movie. The only other notable part of the movie was Suki Kaiser, providing good eye candy as the beautiful and brilliant Dr. Alex Royce.

If there were still Drive-In movie theaters in numbers enough to matter, this would be the second feature that you ignore in order to have cramped car sex with your date.

R.I.P Andrew Breitbart

Thursday, March 1st, 2012

Andrew Breitbart, cultural warrior for America, died today.

Condolences to his family and friends.

Joshua Trevino made an excellent observation:

Of course, the left is responding in their typical “new civility”, open minded and tolerant fashion.

Yup, cheering the death of someone who dared to disagree with them. Color me not surprised.

The Texas Public Policy Foundation shows more class than your typical leftist.

“The passing of Andrew Breitbart is a cause for much sorrow – but the life of Andrew Breitbart was a cause for much joy. Every defender of liberty takes heart in his accomplishments, and now in his legacy. He reminded us of things that should never be forgotten: that the truth has more power than the lie, that freedom defeats oppression, and that we must fight for both every waking day. He was a genius of the communicative art, and a pioneer in the marriage of new media to enduring principle. We walk in his footsteps, and our only regret is that we can no longer stand in his shadow.

“The Communications team of the Texas Public Policy Foundation bids farewell to Andrew Breitbart: this happy warrior, this American.”

If you haven’t been already, you should be reading Big Government and Big Journalism.

If you haven’t read his book, Righteous Indignation: Excuse Me While I Save the World yet, pick up and do so. It was one of my book picks from last year.

Andrew Breitbart tells the story of his transformation from clueless college student majoring in (anti-)American Studies to a warrior for the Constitution and for honesty in in reporting from the main stream media. He explains in detail about collaboration between theDNC and the Media Complex (which includes TV News, print magazines and the film industry) and how to use new media to combat them and win! In chapter 7, he lays out his game plan for fighting the left in details some of the highlights include: Don’t be afraid to go into enemy territory; Don’t let the Complex use its PC lexicon to characterize you and shape the narrative; Ubiquity is key; and Truth isn’t mean. It’s truth. Leftist will try to talk about “your truth” and “their truth”, which is bullshit. There is just the truth.

“Liberals are so open minded and tolerant they think they know how everyone else should live their life. And if you disagree, you’re a racist ignorant close minded bigot.”
