The "MC" words

Is There An Imposter In The White House?

Maybe the “birthers” were a little extreme, but is there something wrong with this “manufactured candidate,” whose history remains sealed from public view? What is he hiding?

Res Ipsa Loquitur
Could the “Hawaii birth certificate” be a forgery? Is there something much worse—like “sponsorship” by an unnamed special interest? I don’t know. I do know that the man in the White House now is an imposter. The only question is which kind of an imposter: an incompetent “pretender” or a genuine phony, a “Manchurian candidate,” who is a liberal, ½ black and ½ white, and an obvious Muslim sympathizer (despite claims of being a Christian—in clear conflict with his non-Christian behavior). [FORBES] (This link is an arbhived page of the deleted article)

What a schmuck.  The dude is asking the very question "birthers" ask, but he's been so cowed by the Alinsky branding tactic that he goes  limp wristy apologetic from the outset. Of course that sumbitch Soetoro is a phony; and the preponderance of evidence suggests he's of Manchurian descent. And you, Mr Mariotti, are now a birther. Welcome. 

4 Best Legal Arguments Against ObamaCare

The 4 Best Legal Arguments Against ObamaCare
Why the president's sweeping health care overhaul should be struck down by the Supreme Court.

If the court fails to strike down Obamacare, it really is all over for this country, even if Obama is defeated in November.  The Individual Mandate is at the heart of it.

As you are prolly aware, Top Gear (UK) is my go-to feel good place of all time.  There were 117 episodes available on NetFlix (and Amazon).  Because I husbanded them (rationed to watching just one a day), I squeezed better than 3 months out of the series.  I am today on episode 111 of the second go-around.  Which meant I had only a week left.  Last night I noticed the NEW EPISODES alert on my (NetFlix) recently watched icons.  HFS!  I looked,  and indeed there are seven heretofore unseen (by me) treats in store (don't  watch Top Gear on BBC- America, they trim a good 22 minutes from each episode).  Brilliant!

By the by, I'm reminded of a question I've been wanting to ask.  By what convention are we, here in the US,  proscribed from watching  media from other countries?  Who decided that?  And, why? In my case I'm referring to BBC-UK.  I know you can download nearly unfathomable software to make the BBC think you live in Chelsea, but why is it necessary? It's Un-American!

Gas Pain

A short note on gasoline prices and the election

Res Ipsa Loquitur

[...] This graph from Trevor Houser, a partner at the Rhodium Group and an energy and natural resources specialist, appears to suggest that the relationship between voting preferences and oil is incredibly strong.

A chart plotting political analyst Charlie Cook's Partisan Voting Index against gasoline expenditures as a share of personal income demonstrates the tight relationship between how much voters spend on gas and how they vote.[... Tiger Hawk]

Tiger Hawk 'splains this chart, but what it implies is that Obama's ass is grass.

Never talk to the police (sometimes)


Never, Ever, Talk to the Police
Lightheartedly spellbinding!

I felt this advice was so important when I first posted it in 2009, that my plan was to reprise it once a year.  I forgot.

Santorum's Inner Santorum

Pennsylvania conservatives reluctant to forgive political transgressions

"It's (Choosing a Republican candidate) like Sophie’s Choice if Sophie didn’t really like either of her kids."

Res Ipsa Loquitur

Santorum’s support for pro-choice, Republican-turned-Democratic-incumbent Arlen Specter over resolute fiscal conservative Pat Toomey in the 2004 Senate race remains an inexcusable sore point (!!!), many PLC attendees said.

But let's not some of us be too cocky ....

10 Scams not dealing with Obama

            —   you berk.   

Res Ipsa Loquitur

I was sure this TOP 10 SCAMS OF THE YEAR list would be pedestrian, containing none that I could possibly fall victim to.  This hotel guest scam is brilliantly conceived however, and I can see how my neighbor could fall for it.  (No, Obama for President was not on the list).

ASIDE- Several years ago I idea'd this mission for our military, after we found and killed bin Laden.  Devote all of the nation's resources to finding and killing the world's biggest Phishers.  After we rid ourselves of Obama, it's still a grand idea.
