Another Power Grab ...

Another Day, Another Power Grab ..

Warding Off Obamunists

What’s the major difference between George W. Bush’s No Child Left Behind law and the new education program that will be announced by President Obama today?

It’s there in the very sentence above.

The Bush law is a law. It was the result of arduous bipartisan negotiations that led to an agreement between, of all people, Bush and the late Sen. Edward Kennedy.

The Obama program is a program. It is federal fiat, a decision about what’s best by your superiors in the Obama administration. It’s a unilateral move to bypass the legislative process. It may or may not be good education policy. But the Chinese Politburo also may or may not be doing good education policy. [Full]

Living under Obama is like watching that interminable desert crossing scene in Lawrence of Arabia.  The torture goes on and on and on ... .

Gee - why do they want my health records?

I'm pressing the button here boss ... pressing the button. Anyone hear anything?

Stages of Gayety


Harry Reid's Americans

Democrats reject stop-gap spending bill—  government shutdown unavoidable?

From my vantage point, if Reid doesn't budge (i.e. Republicans cave), he just bukakied himself. It'll be pretty damned hard for the Democrat media to spin "Republicans wanted spending bill, Democrats didn't" into something Obama palatable. Especially given the depth of democrat constituencies ability to understand anything more complex than "It's Free"

Sue Random House for $10 Billion - Sounds Good ....

More Dudley Breitbart
Rotting AF1

In an email dated January 27, 2011, Joe McGinniss, author of The Rogue: Searching for the Real Sarah Palin, says that Random House lawyers have told him he has provided nothing more than “tawdry gossip” to substantiate “any of the salacious stories about the Palin family.”

Below, I present each of these accusations in turn, and how McGinniss used most of them in The Rogue, even though he admitted in his email that he could not prove them:


a) Todd had sex with a hooker, or with anyone else outside his marriage.
McGinniss dropped the “hooker” accusation–probably because he was afraid, as his email suggests, that the sole source “may be mentally unstable” and that even the National Enquirer appeared to be ready “to back off this story.”  Yet McGinniss did publish allegations in The Rogue that Todd flirted with other women

b)  Sarah had an affair with Brad Hanson, or anyone else.
McGinniss presents no named source for this accusation in The Rogue other than an article in the National Enquirer in October 2008 [and third party sources] McGinniss does not quote Cottle directly, but says that she fills him in on local gossip ... .

c)  Track was a druggie who enlisted in the army to avoid a jail term.  Or that he vandalized Wasilla school buses.
McGinniss’s basis for accusations of drug use by Track Palin is the National Enquirer, which in turn had quoted an unnamed “source” in 2008. He adds that “reports of Track’s drug use persisted even into the summer of 2010” but does not specify what those reports are, or from whom (p. 114). His primary source for the accusation of vandalism in 2005 is local gossip: “word spread immediately in Wasilla,”  Blah-blah-nlah

d)  Willow was involved in the vandalism of the empty house in Meadow Lakes.  Or that Sarah rushed back from Hawaii to put the lid on that.
McGinniss’s only source is the National Enquirer, which made these claims in 2010. He also claims “[m]any in Wasilla” believe the story (p. 111). He also cites gossip related by Colleen Cottle in 2010–again, Blah-blah-nlah

e) Trig is not Sarah’s natural born child. [Me: I think this is the most inexcusably malicious of the lot]
McGinniss provides no new evidence for this debunked claim, quoting “questions” being asked on “blogs” and the like (p. 316). McGinniss also cites “many Wasillans” who allegedly say that “even if she had not faked the entire story of her pregnancy and Trig’s birth, it was something she was eminently capable of doing” Blah-blah-nlah

f)   Bristol was promiscuous as a high schooler and drank and used drugs, or became pregnant again after Tripp’s birth.
McGinniss’s source is again local gossip in the summer of 2010: “Rumors immediately run rampant,” he says (p. 204). Once again, he also cites gossip allegedly related by (but not directly quoted from) Colleen Cottle in 2010. He mentions a July 2010 interview in The Daily Beast with Bristol’s alleged new boyfriend at the time, Ben Barber, which does not discuss promiscuity or drugs, and actually contradicts the claim that Bristol became pregnant again Blah-blah-nlah

The cure of course is to successfully sue McGinnis and Random House for, oh I dunno, $10B?

Joint Operations


Universal Language

One reason the Military Services have trouble operating jointly is that they don't speak the same language. For example, if you told Navy personnel to "secure a building," they would turn off the lights and lock the doors. The Army would occupy the building so no one could enter. Marines would assault the building, capture it, and defend it with suppressive fire and close combat. The Air Force, on the other hand, would take out a three-year lease with an option to buy.

Smartly Said- "Free Shit"

Free Shit

Cuzzin Ricky sent me this, adding "I have never heard this said as plain or as well.  Class war at its best." I think you will concur. 

Free Shit

The folks who are getting the free shit, don't like the folks who are paying for the free shit, because the folks who are paying for the free shit can no longer afford to pay for both the free shit and their own shit.

And, the folks who are paying for the free shit want the free shit to stop.

And the folks who are getting the free shit want even more free shit on top of the free shit they are already getting!

 Now...  The people who are forcing the people who Pay for the free shit have told the people who are RECEIVING the free shit that the people who are PAYING for the free shit are being mean, prejudiced, and racist.

So... the people who are GETTING the free shit have been convinced they need to hate the people who are paying for the free shit by the people who are forcing some people to pay for their free shit and giving them the free shit in the first place.

We have let the free shit giving go on for so long that there are now more people getting free shit than paying for the free shit.

Now understand this. All great democracies have committed financial suicide somewhere between 200 and 250 years after being founded.  The reason?

The voters figured out they could vote themselves money from the treasury by electing people who promised to give them money from the treasury in exchange for electing them.

 The United States officially became a Republic in 1776, 231 years ago. The number of people now getting free shit outnumbers the people paying for the free shit. We have one chance to change that in 2012. Failure to change that spells the end of the United States as we know it.


And as if by magic ...

The GOtP - Great Ideas Series


New GOP Logo

S2 (formerly stoo-pid)  suggests that could well be the GOP's  new logo.  Yes; yes it could.  Which lead me to again brain wrestle with the problem of how to repudiate and help destroy a party that has become little more than the democrat party in  drag, and then raise out of its  ash the Grand Old Party that defeated Democrats on slavery; put teeth into the Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution, and exposed the degree of the Communist Party's infiltration of our body politic and culture in the post WWII era? .  The answer of  course is the Grand Old Tea Party.  GOtP?  We need a suitable logo too.  Maybe this?


So, what do you think?
