Obama Bitch Slaps Crazy Conservatives

High gas prices and the wisdom of drilling for oil
The writer says soaring gasoline prices are the direct result of failed federal energy policies of U.S. President Barack Obama.

.Gasoline prices are zooming past $4 a gallon and the United States is hardly freer from the grip of imported oil or closer to robust economic recovery. With his approval ratings dropping precipitously, U.S. President Barack Obama is blaming speculators and investigating fraud and at the pump when this mess is the direct result of failed federal energy policies.

By word and deed, the Obama administration has sought to limit off-shore oil exploration and development and hasten the commercial viability of solar, wind and alternative vehicle technologies.

All this is based on two erroneous but strongly held beliefs among liberal policymakers, academics and pundits -- increasing oil U.S. production would do little to lower U.S. gas prices and but for the vested interests of multinational oil companies, mankind would have long ago harnessed renewable energy sources and freed itself freed itself from the sin of burning hydrocarbons.

I know what you're saying.  "Rodge, why the hell are you posting that here?  There is not a jot of new information contained therein!"

It's a trick.  I'm titling this "Obama Bitch Slaps Crazy Conservatives."  The idiot blogs will blindly post it.  Mountains will move.

We all wanted a summer job here.  In retrospect, it couldn't possibly have been what ... . you know. Nah.   Still, there are those "horse back riding" explanations. Nah. This is a very sophomoric, even infantile thing to post.  Don't look at me; I'm hideous.

Self Defence 101

Improvised Self Defense

The are many reasons why a woman will not have a self defense pistola at her bedside.  She's married to a pasty-faced girly-man; she lives in a state like Maryland, where using it during a home invasion would only result in her arrest; she's uneducated about, and fears guns.  Whatever the reason,  this is a simple self defense tactic I teach in my Simple Self Defense Tactic course at the community d├ęcolletage.  I call this the "Instant Slingshot," and believe the picture is self instructive. 

Warning: Don't shoot your eye out.

Lie, Lies, and more Obama

The Obamissariat

A funny thing has happened on the way to the implementation of Obamacare, aka the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA): it’s become much less affordable. When the law was passed in 2010, the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) estimated it would cost $940 billion over a ten year period. The new estimate? $1.76 trillion.

But it gets even better. *gasp; gasp;* ... the number of non-elderly legal residents forced to obtain supplemental insurance policies will rise from 82 percent in 2012, to 93 percent in 2022.

None of this surprises those who warned that the original cost estimates of the healthcare bill were little more than Enron-like accounting gimmicks. [Costs for ObamaCare Skyrocket]

Towards an Open Convention

Against All Odds

Mitt Romney extended his lead in delegates in the Republican presidential nomination fight this week, but his hopes of avoiding a contested convention dimmed slightly after third-place finishes in Tuesday night’s two biggest contests.

While the former Massachusetts governor won the most delegates overall in Alabama, Mississippi, Hawaii and American Samoa, his three opponents — Rick Santorum, Newt Gingrich and Rep. Ron Paul — combined to win nearly 60 percent of the delegates awarded on Tuesday. Every night that Mr. Romney wins less than an outright majority makes it tougher for him to capture the magic number of delegates needed to clinch the nomination before the August convention in Tampa.

Cox’s threats included: “I plan to kill Arpaio first. He will be filled with a thousand bullet holes before the year is out. I promise you this. He won’t f**k with Obama. He will be buried 10 feet under and his whole family will be murdered along with him.” [Obama 'fanatic' guilty in Arpaio death threat]
