My New Restaurant


Announcing "La Serk"
Res Ipsa Loquitor

I've been planning ahead for this year's post college hoops boredom.  To wit, I spent all day cleaning the basement and setting up my new restaurant "La Serk"  I will accommodate one sitting per night, five days a week.  The prix fixe price for the table, of up to four people, is $1000 (plus 20% gratuity).  I plan on giving a Michelin Three Star dining experience.  I'm  working on the menu now, but here's a hint.  I've ordered vanilla beans, truffle oil, and the best Omaha steak package available.  Blogging will be way down beginning in April.More later.

Make that "AmeriKa"

Only in America

Res Ipsa Loquitor

1) Only in America could the rich people - who pay 86% of all income taxes - be accused of not paying their "fair share" by people who don't pay any income taxes at all.

2) Only in America could people claim that the government still discriminates against black Americans when they have a black President, a black Attorney General, and roughly 18% of the federal workforce is black while only 12% of the population is black

3) Only in America could they have had the two people most responsible for our tax code, Timothy Geithner, the head of the Treasury Department and Charles Rangel who once ran the Ways and Means Committee, BOTH turn out to be tax cheats who are in favor of higher taxes.

4) Only in America can they have terrorists kill people in the name of Allah and have the media primarily react by fretting that Muslims might be harmed by the backlash.

5) Only in America would they make people who want to legally become American citizens wait for years in their home countries and pay tens of thousands of dollars for the privilege while we discuss letting anyone who sneaks into the country illegally just 'magically' become American citizens.

6) Only in America could the people who believe in balancing the budget and sticking by the country's Constitution be thought of as "extremists."

7) Only in America could you need to present a driver's license to cash a check or buy alcohol, but not to vote.

8) Only in America could people demand the government investigate whether oil companies are gouging the public because the price of gas went up when the return on equity invested in a major U.S. oil company (Marathon Oil) is less than half of a company making tennis shoes (Nike).

9) Only in America could the government collect more tax dollars from the people than any nation in recorded history, still spend a Trillion dollars more than it has per year - for total spending of $7-Million PER MINUTE, and complain that it doesn't have nearly enough money.

10) Only in America could politicians talk about the greed of the rich at a $35,000.00 a plate campaign fund-raising event.
11) Only in America can a man with no background, no qualifications and no experience ... and a complete failure at his job ... be reelected.

Two Commies Named Wallace?

FBI reveals surveillance of 60 minutes correspondent Mike Wallace, who was accused of being a communist

Res Ipsa LoquitorWallace was not discovered to be a communist

 Determining who is or is not a communist is tricky.  The "Hollywood Ten" actually had American Communist Party membership; Roosevelt's closest adviser Harry Hopkins, among others, "was assuredly a major-league Soviet agent."   Had FDR died just a few months earlier,  communist & V.P. Henry A. Wallace would have become president instead of Truman.  Since 1984's CPUSA's  ticket of  Gus Hall/Angela Davis, the Party simply endorses the Democrat Party ticket.  Ahem.

But not being a official member does not mean you can't be a "Communist."  It's here that actions speak louder than a membership card.  I've long been intrigued by  CBS Television News's line of succession since  Edward R. Murrow. Murrow pretty much invented CBS TV NEWS, and was pivotal to the success of  portraying Senator Joseph McCarthy as a "Right Wing Nut."   Murrow decided who would be hired and fired at CBS.  From Walter Cronkite forward, CBS News presenters  have consistently acted in a manner that can only be described as "very acceptable" by Uncle Joe." Wallace included.  I'm just saying.

The woman was working in an upstairs office when she spotted a strange man outside a window, according to Walton County Sheriff Joe Chapman. He said she took her 9-year-old twins to a crawlspace before the man broke into the home,  using a crowbar.
The perpetrator opens that door. Of course, at that time he's staring at her, her two children and a .38 revolver," Chapman told WSB-TV.
The woman then shot him five times, but he survived, Chapman said. He said the woman ran out of bullets but threatened to shoot the intruder if he moved.

Obama's Enabling Act- the Executive Order

Hitler's Mustache

On August 2, 1934 Paul von Hindenburg, president of the Weimar Republic of Germany died.  Chancellor Adolf Hitler immediately invoked the Executive Order Enabling Act which  empowered him to  dispense with the constitution for four years while he issued laws, unchecked.  In a heartbeat Adolf Hitler dissolved Germany's parliament and forced the army to swear an oath of allegiance to him—personally. He was, in a flash, absolute Dictator.

In addition to potential legislative proposals, Biden’s group has expanded its focus to include measures that would not need congressional approval and could be quickly implemented by executive action... Possibilities include changes to federal mental-health programs and modernization of gun-tracking efforts by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. - Obama promises broad gun control action.

No apologies for using the the Hitler thing with Obama.  The parallels are just too compelling.  And, don't you know, nobody—I mean nobody—had heard of Godwin's Law until Obama was elected.
This clip from yesterday's The McLaughlin Group is interesting, aside from Pat Buchanan's "There Would Be A Revolution" If Government Confiscated Weapons." quote.  Namely, the staggeringly stupid  Eleanor Rodham Clift is not only still alive, but still part of the panel.  Little matter however; while The McLaughlin Group was once an important part of the public debate, is ain't no more.  I wonder if defunct Newsweek is sending Clift her retirement check?
