Elsewhere on the Internet

I wrote some schtuff recently. You should go read it, because I love my readers and my editors enjoy the web traffic. See? Everyone is happy! Well, except for my liberal friends that don’t like to be reminded of my conservative leanings. So you guys are excused from reading. Except that you really should read, because it will help you to see another perspective.

Perspective is good, people.

I went to Las Vegas last week with a $51 Spirit Airlines ticket. After purchasing said ticket, I found out about the $35 fee for overhead bin usage. Each way. Needless to say, I packed everything into a bag that fit under the seat in front of me. Viva la capitalism!

President Obama is fear mongering again, trying to get his latest stimulus jobs bill passed. You know, because it worked so well in 2009.

In the latest edition of Crap My Veep Says, Joe Biden says he wishes Republicans knew what rape and murder felt like. Yup, he actually said that.

President Obama continues to push the jobs bill, even as we’re finding out that the 2009 stimulus gave money to electric car company Fisker … who sent jobs to Finland.

Guess what happens when the government takes over health care? Rationing!

And last but not least, Muslim students at the Catholic University of America are peeved that there are crosses on the walls of classrooms where they are allowed to perform their prayers toward Mecca.

Happy clicking reading!

Top 50 Dumb Liberal Quotes

Without much preamble and hardly any ado, I present to you 50 dumb quotes from those on the left side of the aisle. From crazy ideas about toilet paper usage to freak-outs over balloons, this list will make you laugh and shake your head in disbelief (and maybe even vote Republican in November?).

1. Sheryl Crow on Environmentalism: “I propose a limitation be put on how many sqares [sic] of toilet paper can be used in any one sitting. Now, I don’t want to rob any law-abiding American of his or her God-given rights, but I think we are an industrious enough people that we can make it work with only one square per restroom visit, except, of course, on those pesky occasions where 2 to 3 could be required.’”

2. Joe Biden on culturalism: “In Delaware, the largest growth of population is Indian Americans, moving from India. You cannot go to a 7/11 or a Dunkin’ Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent. I’m not joking.”

3. Whoopi Goldberg on 43-year-old Roman Polanski raping and sodomizing a 13-year-old girl: “I know it wasn’t rape-rape. It was something else but I don’t believe it was rape-rape. He went to jail and and [sic] when they let him out he was like “You know what this guy’s going to give me a hundred years in jail I’m not staying, so that’s why he left.”

4. Joy Behar on Economics: “Isn’t it a little racist to call it Black Friday?”

5. John Conyers on the Health Care Bill, which he voted for: “I love these members, they get up and say, ‘Read the bill … What good is reading the bill if it’s a thousand pages and you don’t have two days and two lawyers to find out what it means after you read the bill?’”

6. Former DNC Chairman Donald Fowler on possible delay of RNC convention due to Hurricane Gustav: “Plus they think the hurricane’s going to hit (starts laughing) New Orleans about the time they start. The timing, at least it appears now, that it’ll be there Monday. That just demonstrates God’s on our side”

7. Barack Obama: “I’ve now been in 57 states? I think one left to go?”

8. John Kerry on the troops: “You know, education, if you make the most of it, you study hard, you do your homework and you make an effort to be smart, you can do well. If you don’t, you get stuck in Iraq.”

13. Alan Grayson on Health Care: “The Republican health care plan: don’t get sick … The Republicans have a back up plan in case you do get sick … This is what the Republicans want you to do. If you get sick America, the Republican health care plan is this: Die quickly!”

14. Nancy Pelosi on the economy: “every month that we do not have an economic recovery package 500 million Americans lose their jobs.”

15. Helen Thomas: Jews should “get the hell out of Palestine” and “go home” to Germany and Poland.

25. Michael Moore on terrorism: “There is no terrorist threat. Yes, there have been horrific acts of terrorism and, yes, there will be acts of terrorism again. But that doesn’t mean that there’s some kind of massive terrorist threat.”

26. Henry Waxman on Environmentalism: We’re seeing the reality of a lot of the North Pole starting to evaporate, and we could get to a tipping point.

And if it gets to a point where it evaporates too much, there’s a lot of tundra that’s being held down by that ice cap.”

27. Marion Barry, former mayor of Washington, DC: “If you take out the killings, Washington actually has a very very low crime rate.”

I don’t see anything happening. Go, balloons. Go, balloons. Go, balloons. Stand by, confetti. Keep coming, balloons. More balloons. Bring them. Balloons, balloons, balloons! More balloons. Tons of them. Bring them down. Let them all come. No confetti. No confetti yet. No confetti. All right. Go, balloons. Go, balloons. We’re getting more balloons. All balloons.

39. Al Gore on zoology: “A zebra does not change its spots.”

41. Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz on the newly passed health care law: “We actually have not required in this law that you carry health insurance.”

42. Congressman John Dingell on freedom: “The harsh fact of the matter is when you’re passing legislation that will cover 300 million American people in different ways, it takes a long time to do the necessary administrative steps that have to be taken to put the legislation together to control the people.”

43. Former Congressman Eric Massa: “Now, they’re saying I groped a male staffer. Yes, I did. Not only did I grope him, I tickled him until he couldn’t breathe and four guys jumped on top of me. It was my 50th birthday.”

45. Radio personality Ed Schultz on elections: “If I lived in Massachusetts, I’d try to vote ten times … Yeah that’s right, I’d cheat to keep these bastards out. I would. Because that’s exactly what they are.”

46. John Kerry on health care: “I’m going to be honest with you — I don’t know a lot about Cuba’s healthcare system. Is it a government-run system?”

47. Congresswoman Maxine Waters on socialism: “Guess what this liberal would be all about? This liberal will be about socializing…uh, um…Would be about, basically, taking over, and the government running all of your companies.”

48. Senator Harry Reid on Barack Obama: “…light-skinned,” and with “no negro dialect.”

48. Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano on national security, after a man attempted to blow up a commercial airplane with a bomb in his panties: “The system worked.”

49. Nancy Pelosi on legislation: “But we have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it.”

50. Joe Biden to Missouri State Senator Chuck Graham, who is wheelchair bound: “stand up … Chuck, stand up, Chuck, let ‘em see you!”

Media Control Controls the Masses

I am not a journalist. I am a commentator. I present the facts and I offer my opinion. I try to be persuasive and logical, because my goal is to get readers to see my point of view, understand it, and even occasionally agree with it.

I don’t report on stories, as reporters do. Reporters report the facts, just the facts. They do not pick and choose their stories. They do not ask softball questions to public figures they like and grill those they don’t care for. In fact, they are so unbiased in their reporting that determining their political affiliations is difficult.

At least that’s how journalists and reporters used to be. That’s not quite the case these days. Reporters today get tingles up their legs when they listen to President Obama. Journalists call Sarah Palin an idiot, but laugh off then-Senator Biden when he said FDR went on television in 1929 to address the public. Household television sets didn’t exist in 1929, nor was FDR the President, just in case you needed a brief history lesson.

Personally, I wasn’t surprised to find out about JournoList last month. JournoList was an online forum created and controlled by liberal blogger Ezra Klein, and its membership was limited to “several hundred left-leaning bloggers, political reporters, magazine writers, policy wonks, and academics.”

Joe Biden on Flotilla

I. Am. Shocked.

I am usually impressed by what our Vice President has to say, but it’s usually more in the “I’m impressed this idiot ended up as the VP of our country” category. Heck, he even has his own category on this blog- Did Joe Biden really just say that?

A few days ago, Mr. Biden made some comments about this whole Flotilla thing. Flotilla is a fancy word for small group of ships, it has nothing to do with carne asada or guacamole.

The Flotilla thing in a nutshell- There’s this tiny strip of land in the middle east called Gaza, and it’s bordered by Israel on three sides, and water on the fourth side. It’s filled with people that loathe the Israelis and want to kill them. They bomb Israel all the time, mostly with petty little bomb thrown over the border that don’t do substantial damage, but still suck and people do die. I wrote a little bit about the whole situation here, if you’d like more background.

Ok, so last week a Turkish charity group tried to bring aid into impoverished Gaza. MSNBC reports that the super mean Israelis boarded the ship and started killing the poor sweet protestors. Ok, I’m paraphrasing, but not by much. Go ahead. Click the link. If you can stomach it.

It has since come out that that “aid” was sent by a Turkish “charity” group with terrorist ties. And that the flotilla carried Jihads openly ready to be martyrs. In other words, they came looking for a fight.

Here’s the thing that Joe Biden said. That I totally agree with.

“They’ve said, ‘Here you go. You’re in the Mediterranean. This ship — if you divert slightly north you can unload it and we’ll get the stuff into Gaza,’”, he said. “So what’s the big deal here? What’s the big deal of insisting it go straight to Gaza? Well, it’s legitimate for Israel to say, ‘I don’t know what’s on that ship. These guys are dropping… 3,000 rockets on my people.

“Look, you can argue whether Israel should have dropped people onto that ship or not — but the truth of the matter is, Israel has a right to know — they’re at war with Hamas — has a right to know whether or not arms are being smuggled in.”

During the interview, Biden also blamed Hamas for the crisis that has wracked the coastal territory and for the ongoing state of conflict with Israel.

“As we put pressure, and the world put pressure on Israel to let material go into Gaza to help those people who are suffering, the ordinary Palestinians there, what happened? Hamas would confiscate it, put it in a warehouse [and] sell it.

I wonder what MSNBC has to say about that.

Joe Biden Redefines “Fair”

From Yahoo Finance:

Vice President Joe Biden wants all Americans to know about the roughly $300 billion in tax breaks that were part of the Recovery Act passed last year.

There’s also the issue of whether these tax cuts, in conjunction with the health care reform bill signed last week, represent a redistribution of wealth in America, as many claim.

“It’s a simple proposition to us: Everyone is entitled to adequate medical health care,” Biden says. “If you call that a ‘redistribution of income’ – well, so be it. I don’t call it that. I call it just being fair – giving the middle class taxpayers an even break that the wealthy have been getting.”(Emphasis mine)

Hey Joe, I think everyone’s entitled to a representative government. You don’t mind if we drastically slash your pay, do you? While we’re at it, I think everyone is entitled to organic meats and produce to feed their families. I would love to buy only organic, but the price is so high that I simply can’t do it. I demand a government subsidy. And why am I still getting a water bill each month? Isn’t water a necessity? Of all the things you can’t live without, I’d put water second on the list, right after air. It’s so unfair that I have to pay for water, when it should be a basic human right.

Are you getting the picture, Joe, or should I go on? Or did I just provide you with a whole new list of government programs? That’s a scary thought.

The fact is that people have rights so long as they don’t infringe upon the rights of another person. To say that one person has the right to a service provided by someone else is not fair, it’s insane.

She’s Not Dead Yet, Joe!

This is too good not to share.  From the AP:

WASHINGTON — Vice President Joe Biden asked for God’s blessing for the late mother of Irish Prime Minister Brian Cowen during a White House celebration of St. Patrick’s Day — except the elderly lady is very much alive.

“God rest her soul,” Biden said Wednesday night as he introduced Cowen and President Barack Obama. He quickly caught himself and noted that it’s Cowen’s father who is no longer living. Of the prime minister’s mother, Biden said, “God bless her soul.”

Biden then cited the Irish proverb that “a silent mouth is sweet to hear” and yielded the podium to the president.

I bet Dan Quayle is quite amused over Biden’s frequent verbal vomit.

Joe Biden: More Entertaining than a Circus Clown

Our VP can always be counted on to say the most insane things at the most bizarre times.  He did not dissapoint last night on Larry King.  Let me share with you some of the gems he dropped.

Regarding airplane attacks by Muslim extremists:

“I think what you’re seeing morphing here – and it’s a concern to us – is you’ll see the concern relates to somebody like a shoe bomber or the underpants bomber, the Christmas attack or someone just strapping a backpack on them with weapons that are indigenous and blowing up, you know, walking into in airport…I think there are going to be attempts.”  Biden also insisted that the Obama administration, which ordered a review of security and terrorism procedures after the Christmas Day incident, is prepared to deal with such attempts. “I’ve been really impressed with the success we’ve had, building on the last administration, in dealing with these.”

Hmm… I feel safe now.  Especially since the head of Homeland Security thinks the system works, but just in case it doesn’t, let’s steal pillows from toddlers during the last 90 minutes of all flights.

Regarding that three-letter word JOBS:

“I think now the jobs bill, I think, will be probably less than is needed initially, but it will be very helpful…by the spring, I think people are going to begin to have more confidence in the policies we’ve put in place.”

Is this the same Jobs Bill that extends unemployment benefits?  Why don’t they just go ahead and call it a “don’t bother looking for work because we’re going to pay you even longer to sit at home heckling the *rich* people providing for your existence”?  Too long?  Bummer.

Regarding Iraq:

“I am very optimistic about Iraq. I mean, this could be one of the great achievements of this administration…You’re going to see 90,000 American troops come marching home by the end of the summer.”

So he’s optimistic about having the troops home, not about Iraq or our own national security.  When the US leaves, the fledgling democracy in Iraq will most likely crumble to the extremists, and we’ll see all sorts of lovely new terrorist cells plotting the destruction of the US.  Perfect.

Regarding Sarah Palin (this by far is my favorite):

“I like her…She’s an engaging person. She has a great personality. I don’t agree with what she says and I think some of the things she says are not – well…Well, you know, it’s sort of like – some of the comments made are just so far out there, I just don’t know where they come from.”

Seriously Joe? Maybe you could explain some of your comments before you go ripping into Sarah Palin for her far-out comments.

“It Won’t Be Six Months In…”

Remember that warning from gaffe-tastic VP Biden during the 2008 election?

Can we safely say that the President is being tested, and he definitely made the cutoff. It’s only been five months. Predictably and unfortunately, he doesn’t seem to be passing at the moment.

From Iran-

President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad won re-election in a landslide, a feat which US officials say is, “not credible.” The Iranian government tried to shut down communication between its citizens to prohibit them from organizing protests, but it didn’t matter. The people are protesting, riots are erupting, and people are dying.

Biden commented this morning-

Vice President Joe Biden says he has doubts about whether Iran’s presidential election was free and fair, as Mahmoud Ahmadinejad claims from his landslide victory.

Biden says the U.S. and other countries need more time to analyze the results before making a better judgment about the vote. He says the administration’s interests are the same as they were before the vote — ending Iran’s attempts to develop a nuclear weapon and its support for terrorism.

The vice president says he’s disturbed by the way the Iranian government seems to be suppressing speech and cracking down on crowds protesting Ahmadinejad’s re-election.

Biden says there are lots of questions about the election, but that the U.S. doesn’t have enough facts to make a fair judgment. He wonders whether the outcome is an accurate response of the Iranian people.

Well, I’m glad that the administration is “looking into” the obviously rigged election that kept in power a man that hates Americans, and to whom our President gave the go ahead to persue nuclear power. As long as, you know, they promised not to make weapons out of it. After his bogus re-election:

Ahmadinejad consigned Iran’s nuclear dispute to the past, signaling no nuclear policy change in his second term, and warned that any country that attacked his own would regret it.

“Who dares to attack Iran? Who even dares to think about it?” he said at a news conference.

So I guess the Iranian policy of developing nuclear weapons and lying about doing so won’t be changing. I’m guessing that that the Obama Administration policy of pretending like it’s not happening still stands as well. Ahmadinejad even mocks and dares us to try and stop him. This is some seriously scary stuff.

Meanwhile over in North Korea-

North Korean officials have announced that they are enriching uranium and building a nuclear bomb. They also “threatened war if its ships are stopped as part of new U.N. sanctions aimed at punishing the nation for its latest nuclear test.” They added, “An attempted blockade of any kind by the U.S. and its followers will be regarded as an act of war and met with a decisive military response.”

How is the US responding to the news that North Korea has atomic weapons and enough materials to make at least one nuke? You’ll all feel very safe to know that the State Department has firmly wagged it finger and said, “No, no, no!”

I wonder when the apology tour for the US provoking these great and diverse nations into building devastating weapons will begin.

I Will Not Say, “I Told You So.”

If Senator Obama wins the election today to become the next President of the United States, I believe that the magic pixie dust surrounding him will slowly start to disintegrate. As he enacts some of his far left policies and the repercussions begin to hurt American lives, there are going to be people that cry out, “How could we know this was going to happen?”

I’m going to be tempted to say, “I told you so.” But I don’t need to. It’s already been said.

When energy costs skyrocket, when gas is $8 a gallon and electricity rates are doubled, I’ll say, “Obama told you so.”

When I was asked earlier about the issue of coal…under my plan of a cap and trade system, electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket…even regardless of what I say about whether coal is good or bad, because I’m capping greenhouse gasses, coal power plants, natural gas…you name it…whatever the plants were, whatever the industry was, they would have to retro-fit their operations. -Obama, Jan. 2008

When we’re attacked by middle eastern terrorists on a regular basis (like we were during the Clinton Administration), I will say, “Biden told you so.”

Mark my words. It will not be six months before the world tests Barack Obama like they did John Kennedy. The world is looking. We’re about to elect a brilliant 47-year-old senator president of the United States of America… Remember I said it standing here if you don’t remember anything else I said. Watch, we’re gonna have an international crisis, a generated crisis, to test the mettle of this guy. -Biden, Oct. 2008

When people diagnosed with cancer have to wait weeks or months to begin treatment due to the slow moving process of socialized, universal health care, I’ll say, “Obama told you so.”

I am absolutely determined that by the end of the first term of the next president, we should have universal health care in this country…The time has come for universal health care in America. -Obama, Jan. 2007

When unemployment goes up because businesses are unable to afford his income and capital gains tax hikes, while at the same time actually paying their employees, I’ll say, “Obama told you so.”

I will raise CEO taxes. There is no doubt about it. -Obama on CNN, May 2008

When Obama appoints questionable characters to his cabinet and to the US Supreme Court, and grants Presidential pardons to monsters that should be locked away from society, I’ll say, “Obama told you so.”

In both his (Jeremiah Wright) case and Father Pfleger’s case, they’ve done great work in the community, and I worked in some very poor communities. That’s how I got to know these folks because I was working in these neighborhoods. Obama, Sept 2008

I’ve been fighting alongside ACORN on issues you care about my entire career. Even before I was an elected official, when I ran Project Vote voter registration drive in Illinois, ACORN was smack dab in the middle of it, and we appreciate your work.
Obama speaking to ACORN, Nov. 2007

[It] never ventured into the issues of redistribution of wealth … It didn’t break free from the essential constraints that were placed by the founding fathers in the Constitution. -
Obama’s view of the Supreme Court, Sept. 2001

When people start to wonder why the alcoholic dad down the street (the one whom everyone suspects is molesting his 9 year old daughter but no one can prove it) is getting a welfare check from the government paid for by a small business that had to lay off half a dozen employees to provide that check to that man, I’ll say, “Obama told Joe the Plumber.”

It’s not that I want to punish your success. I just want to make sure that everybody that is behind you, that they have a chance for success too. I think that when you spread the wealth around, it’s good for everyone. -Obama, Oct. 2008

When people start to wonder if he was ready to become the leader of the free world, I’ll say, “Obama told you so.”

I was elected yesterday. . . . I have never set foot in the U.S. Senate. I’ve never worked in Washington. And the notion that somehow I’m immediately going to start running for higher office just doesn’t make sense. So look, I can unequivocally say I will not be running for national office in four years, and my entire focus is making sure that I’m the best possible senator on behalf of the people of Illinois. . . . I am not running for president in 2008. -Barack Obama, Nov. 4, 2004

Biden Folds Under Tough Media Questions (10/27/2008)

In a TV new interview last Thursday, anchor Barbara West asked some questions that much of the public has been wondering about the practices and beliefs of the Democratic ticket, but hence far has been too afraid to ask.

Barbara West- “Aren’t you embarrassed by the blatant attempts to register phony voters by ACORN, an organization that Barack Obama has been tied to in the past?

Biden’s answer- “I am not embarrassed by it, we are not tied to it, we have not paid them one single penny to register a single solitary voter, we have the best get out the vote operation in modern American history. We registered the voters ourselves, and so there is no relationship. I’m embarrassed for anybody in ACORN who went out there and registered somebody who shouldn’t be registered. But I’m not embarrassed because of our campaign, we haven’t paid ACORN a single penny to register a single voter. Those are the facts.

West- “But in the past, Senator Obama was a community organizer for ACORN, he was an attorney for ACORN, and certainly in the senate he has been a benefactor for ACORN.”

Biden- (chuckles) “How has he been a benefactor for ACORN? He was an organizer. John McCain stood before ACORN not long ago complimenting them on the great work they did, does that make John McCain complicitous in any mistake ACORN made? Come on, let’s get real here.”

Wow, Sarah Palin would’ve been raked over the coals had she ever been caught in such blatant truth shifting. One of Barack Obama’s first big “community organizer” jobs involved ACORN in 1992. Obama also trained ACORN employees, represented ACORN in court, and worked with and protested with ACORN. His campaign donated $800,000 (that’s 80 million single pennies, FYI) to ACORN this year for voter registration efforts. And, ACORN even canvassed for Obama this year.

Ms. West got a little bit tougher with another question- “You may recognize this famous quote: From each according to his abilities to each according to his needs, that’s from Karl Marx. How is Senator Obama not being a Marxist if he intends to spread the wealth around?”

Biden laughed himself out of the unusually tough interview asking in response, “are you joking? Is this a joke?”

“No,” responds West.

“Is that a real question?” Biden continues.

“That’s a question.” West said.

With a chuckle, Biden firmly tells West, “He is not spreading the wealth around. He’s talking about giving the middle class an opportunity to get back the tax breaks they used to have.”

“We think middle class tax payers should get a break, that’s what we think,” Biden added. “That’s a ridiculous comparison with all due respect.”

Obama himself has said that he intends to redistribute the wealth, and has stood by those remarks with pride! A radio interview from 2001 proves that socialism is not a new line of thinking with Barack, but a long time foundation of his beliefs. Then State Senator Obama, talking about the civil rights movement and Supreme Court, said: “I think where it succeeded was to invest formal rights in previously dispossessed peoples so that I would now have the right to vote, I would now be able to sit at the lunch counter and order [and] as long as I could pay for it I would be OK. But the Supreme Court never ventured into the issues of redistribution of wealth and sort of more basic issues of political and economic justice in this society.” (emphasis mine)

Just last month, Obama told Joe the Plumber- “It’s not that I want to punish your success. I just want to make sure that everybody that is behind you, that they have a chance for success too. I think that when you spread the wealth around, it’s good for everyone.”

Some days after this heinous comment about stealing from the hard-working rich Americans and handing the cash over to low-income earners (many of whom are deadbeats, for lack of a better term), Obama made an appearance on Good Morning America with interviewer Robin Roberts. She asked him if he had any regrets about his “spread the wealth” comment to Joe the Plumber. Obama’s response? “No, not at all.”

The infamous father of socialism Karl Marx’s socialist/communist agenda can be summed up as, “From each according to his ability, to each according to his need.” Isn’t that exactly what Obama has been touting? Tax the rich, give it to the poor! Left-wingers are proud of their socialist leader, but are afraid to be linked with the father of the reform that they’re trying to bring to America. Why can they spew the lie that “Socialism works!” but not give credit to it’s founder, Karl Marx?

But wait! Barbara West still wasn’t finished with her pointed questions. She then proceeded to a question about foreign policy and defense of our country. West asked, “Now you recently said, ‘Mark my words, it will not be six months before the world tests Barack Obama,’ but what worries many people is your caveat, asking them to stand with him, because it’s not going to be apparent initially that he’s right. Are you forewarning Americans that nothing will be done and that America’s days as the world’s leading power are over?”

Biden responded, “No, I’m not at all. I don’t know who’s writing your questions.”

Senator Joe was so riled by the interview that his campaign canceled a scheduled interview between West and Joe’s wife Jill Biden, citing the “unprofessional interview” with Joe Biden as reason for backing out.

Biden couldn’t answer direct questions posed by a 60 year old female TV news anchor. My brother Steve does a killer impression of Cartman from South Park, and I can’t help but hear his voice in my head saying, “Screw you guys, I’m going home.” What a baby! If he thinks that Barbara West is a bully, how is he going to respond in negotiations (you know, those sit down chats without preconditions) with Kim Jong Il of North Korea, Vladimir Putin of Russia, or Mahmoud Ahmadinejad of Iran? If he scoffs at them, calls them bullies, and picks up his toys and heads home, American lives will be in danger in a way that I’m not sure our country has ever witnessed before. 9/11 was a drop in the bucket compared to what these regimes want to do to America, and if they are not kept at bay, they will stop at nothing to destroy us.

Keep that in mind on November 4th.
