It's A Lesson to Me 


So I'm in the mood to listen to some Dead. Fine. But in the right pane of suggestions are what I would expect - Dead songs, except for the top entry: "Matt Damon Rips Sarah Palin". Obviously, that's a previously unrecorded Dead song I am not familiar with.

WTF does Matt Damon's opinion of Sarah Palin have to do with the Grateful Dead? Oh wait, this is Youtube, a Google subsidiary; an extension of the left-wing establishment.

Fear Mongering by the AP 


Wearing a 1940's German military uniform for reenacting? The horror! Next thing you know, someone will be portraying Amon Goeth in a movie!

This article serves no other purpose than to cause fear. Liberal bias by the media? Nah. If this guy were a Democrat, he'd be called a history buff.

Violence 
Funny how these stories just didn't get the coverage that recent stories about assumed conservatives acting in anger about this health care handout do.

via Instapundit:

REMEMBERING WHEN G.O.P. Offices Were Vandalized: “An apparent mob of vandals attacked the North Carolina Republican Party headquarters, causing minor smoke damage, breaking windows and leaving vulgar messages, police said.” I don’t remember a national panic over this, or over the bullet-riddled Bush/Cheney headquarters.

Then there was this episode. And, of course, this: “A group of protesters stormed and then ransacked a Bush-Cheney headquarters building in Orlando, Fla., Tuesday, according to Local 6 News.”

But those represented the righteous indignation of oppressed lefties, rather than the dangerous violence of nasty righties.


Remember the media outcry from these events? Me neither.

How about this Vietnam Vet's home being vandalized? Didn't hear about that one, either. Or this one, either: "Mary Landrieu: I'll Punch Bush, 'Literally'". Classy. Somehow, this didn't seem to be big news either.

Media bias? Nah.

And let's not forget who makes up a majority of protesters at G20 summits or who commits ecoterrorism. Hint: if they vote, they weren't voting Bush/Cheney or McCain/Palin, that's for sure.

Teleprompter Overdependency 
Bush may have said "is our children learning" which, of course, sounds foolish (but at least he didn't say it again within 30 seconds), but this BHO misspeak insults a lot of people.



One can defend Bush's example above. Bush may have really said "is...are children learning?" - having changed from the singular to the plural to agree with children. But, our current TOTUS cannot be defended other that to admit his addiction to the teleprompter. Smartest president ever, riiiight.

Everyone makes errors when speaking but the difference is that when it's the president, everyone usually notices. But with His Excellency in office, the solecisms are ignored. If Bush had said "corpseman" twice while over 100,000 men and women are deployed in Iraq and Afghanistan, the press would have ripped him apart. But, Barry? Nope. He's got unlimited 'get out of jail free' cards.

Maybe I'm being too hard on him. Perhaps he never knew how the pronounce "corpsman" in the first place?

And you can be darn sure that John McCain can pronounce 'corpsman' properly.

Miss Me Yet? 


Maybe not a great, nor even good president, but the Bush years were pretty good. Sure, the media was pretty upset about the 2000 election and even moreso at the 2004 election, but Bush never wavered and, unlike our current prez, never declared war on those who disagreed with him or his policies.

Frankly, I still think it's more than a coincidence that the "economic meltdown" started shortly after McCain's announcement of Palin as a running mate and the bump that put him even with Obama in the polls. Someone **cough** **cough** Soros **cough** **cough** panicked and pulled a lot of strings. I think time will tell that what happened in September 2008 was an October surprise that got well out of hand.

Dubya, things were good during your tenure. With all the crap you took and all the things you did wrong, we did pretty well overall. Even with the inept congress that took office in 2006, the ship held together quite well - until it was sabotaged.

Am I conspiracy nut? Maybe, but no worse than those who blame <insert world problem here> on Bush.

Yet Another Kool-Aid Drinker

It appears that the Nobel Peace Prize committee now has some competition for biggest Kool-Aid Drinker of the year:

Obama 'Most Powerful Writer Since Julius Caesar,' Says NEA Chief

Despite Rocco's bizarre statement, I would still give the award to the brainwashed dolts who gave BHO the Nobel Peace Prize for having the ability to read off of a teleprompter. Good try, Rocco, but not quite.

And speaking of Fox News - isn't BHO's war on them Fascism? In fact, isn't BHO pointing us towards that path? With, of course, help from idiots like Barney Frank, Christopher Dodd, Harry Reid, and Nancy Pelosi. Huh? um, ok, you're right; the real idiots are the ones who pull the lever.

Fascism (n) - "a political philosophy, movement, or regime that exalts nation and often race above the individual and that stands for a centralized autocratic government headed by a dictatorial leader, severe economic and social regimentation, and forcible suppression of opposition" (m-w.com)

Economic and social regimentation - health care, pay czars (and lot of other czars - one leader with many czars reporting directly to him and him alone), control of the automakers, etc. If Dubya was a Fascist like many on the Left believed, he wasn't very good at it. BHO has him beaten hands down in only nine months. But, let's be fair, the supporting cast has been in place for a long time. They finally got their guy in office.

Sinclair Lewis once said: "when Fascism comes to America, it will be wrapped in a flag and carrying a cross." His prediction was a little off. Since many Americans dismissed patriotism and religion years ago, we can amend Mr. Lewis' statement some:

When Fascism came to America, it was wrapped in hope and carried a check.

Handouts always come with rules. If you're willing to sacrifice something for a quick fix, then you deserve what you get. However, by doing so, you ruin a good thing for everybody by ceding all your power to those who should serve us; they end up not serving, but controlling.

Drink up, people. Soon it will be mandatory.

RIP Ed/Ted 
With the passing of Ted Kennedy, many news reports are referring to him as the "liberal lion." That's just not nice. It's not proper to point out the faults of those recently departed.

The Gitmo prisoner problem - solved 
It's so easy and simple, you'll be surprised you didn't think of it first.

Where do we put these prisoners? It's a NIMBY situation for sure. And, I'll give credit where credit is due. BHO promised during the campaign to close Guantánamo Bay, and he's doing it. But, surprise, no one wants the prisoners.

SOLUTION:

Find the US county that had the highest percentage of voters who voted for BHO, and build the prison there. Simple. Problem solved.

Be careful what you wish for because sometimes you get it. lol.
