Soros Losers

 There seems to be a disconnect going on out there.  The latest Rasmussen Poll shows that despite Saturday Night's House passage, the public is against Obamacare 52%-45% .  Worse for Obama, only 25% Strongly Support the plan while 42% are Strongly Opposed.  With that in mind, I wonder what MoveOn.Soros is thinking? 

MoveOn Attacks Dems Who Voted Against Health Care

The backlash has begun.
MoveOn.org is launching a round of TV ads this week targeting Democratic House members who voted against the health care bill over the weekend.

Thirty-nine Democrats voted against the bill, though MoveOn is starting by targeting only six fiscally conservative "Blue Dog" Democrats: Rep. Mike Ross, R-Ala.; Rep. Jason Atlmire, D-Pa.; Rep. Glenn Nye, D-Va.; Rep. Rick Boucher, D-Va.; Rep. Larry Kissell, D-N.C..; and Rep. Heath Shuler, D-N.C.

All but Ross and Boucher are either in their first or second terms in the House. A spokesman for the group said MoveOn plans to spend $500,000 on the ads, which come as liberals seek to pressure moderate Democrats in the Senate to support President Obama in his quest for health care reform.
For the most part those 39 no votes were cast by democrats from Republican leaning districts where, one would expect, opposition is strong.  So what do the MoveOn.twats hope to accomplish with that $500,000?  Encourage more liberal candidates to contest in the primaries?  My guess is that by next summer Obamacrats will be fearful of appearing in public at all.  I say that without hyperbole.

Fort Hood Fallout

GHACK!


 I puckishly commented on a post about the Fort Hood murders that we'd soon be hearing cries to "Ban guns in the military"  More prescient than puckish, that now seems.
My heart goes out to the victims of the Fort Hood and Orlando shootings and their loved ones. Senseless, senseless incidents. I will not go quietly into the night on this one. America needs to do something about idiots with handguns. How many more Fort Hoods and Orlandos do there have to be before our political leaders have the guts to severely restrict access to murderous weapons?

View From The Porch mistress Tam (think Agent Bedhead's scalpel in Kim du Toit's hands) earlier launched on Lt. Gen. Robert Cone for rationalizing the defenseless condition troops were in with "this is our home.  We're supposed to be safe ... "
Sure, General, your troops were "safe at home"... in a war with no fronts.

They were every bit as safe at home as the crews of the USS Cole or the battleship Arizona. Safe at home like the Marines in their barracks in Beirut.

An army at war does not have the luxury of "safe at home". Do you think the bomber crews of the Mighty Eighth landed in southern England after pasting the hell out of the Nazis and called out "Olly olly oxen free! We're safe at home now; we'll be putting on our slippers and lighting a pipe. No fair bombing us 'til tomorrow, Adolf!" or do you think they made sure that there were plenty of slit trenches, anti-aircraft guns, and armed guards on the base?
And this seems as good a time as any to throw this e-mail out there.
Civilian officers Kimberly Munley and Mark Todd arrived minutes later. They found the shooter outside, standing about 15 yards away, calmly firing at people as they ran.
"I yelled at him, 'Stop! Drop the weapon!' And that's when he raised his weapon and fired a couple of shots at me," Todd told CNN.
Munley and Todd took cover, the gunman walked behind a building, and the two officers apparently became separated. Todd said he went around the other side of building and exchanged gunfire with the shooter, who flinched, slid down against a telephone pole and fell onto his back.
The confrontation was over in less than a minute, Todd estimated. By then, Munley was down with gunshot wounds to both legs and a wrist. Todd said he did not know whether his fellow officer had wounded the shooter; earlier reports had Munley and the gunman wounding each other in an exchange of gunfire.

Is Kimberly Munley another Jessica Lynch?  Sorry for the cynicism.  I just cannot allow myself to take anything at face value these days. 

The House Bitch

The NUTC's Choice

 Red State's Dan Perrin looks at what happened Saturday night, and sees a bitch from hell throwing her babies into the fire for a moment of self aggrandizement.
Had Rep. Stupak’s amendment failed, the House bill would have failed.

No doubt, and the shock of seeing 64 Dem votes for Rep. Stupak’s don’t use public money to kill the innocents was a Maxell moment for both the Democratic and Republican House Leadership. No one predicted that high a Yes Dem vote.

The desperate position the Speaker must have been in to have to accept the Stupak amendment should not be understated. She and her pro-abortion pals understand that Stupak was a huge step down the path of America becoming a pro-life nation. They have imposed upon themselves and their ilk a negative precedent which cannot be undone.

Dropping the Stupak amendment in conference, should the bill pass the Senate, which I doubt — will mean the conference report will fail on the House floor.

Just think of the desperation of the Speaker, to be FORCED to accept this political price. She pivoted on abortion, and decided the Stupak amendment was worth the price to pass the bill.

For the Jamestown Kool-aid brigade of Dems who voted with the Speaker who are from Red States — you will die a hard and agonizing political death of your own making. Whatever rationale you used to vote for this politically and fiscally toxic bill $3 Trillion spending ObamaCare bill — you are wrong and you are TOAST. (Here is the Congressional Budget Office letter on the $3 Trillion in spending number.)

John Pinette

French v. Italian Bread



 At first I didn't like John Pinette, but over time he's become one of my favorite comics.  Always clean.  Anyway, Cuzzin Ricky and honey are touring the continent.  He's been sending me pictures of each meal, but yesterday sent this video of Pinette's adventures with French cuisine. If you like it, a bunch more selections will appear after this ends. 

Enemy Within

What if ...
 ...  Japanese military cadre took to New York city streets on December 9th, 1941, gloating over their successful sneak attack on Pearl Harbor, and enlisting support from the Nipponese community?  What response from average passers-by would they have received?  And what if the New  York Times wondered whether the attack on Pearl Harbor hadn't been somehow justified?  What response from  that day's "Tea-Bagger?" What if FDR removed our military presence in the Philippines and Hawaii, so as to foster a closer relationship with Tojoboys?  So, what's changed?  And what are we waiting for?
