Mindless II: The Sequel

San Antonio, TX: “When you get to name calling that just shows that there is no logic to your argument any further. It’s all emotion, ” said George Rodriguez, President of the San Antonio Tea Party.

The teacher’s emotion came from a panelist’s comment that school administration should deport undocumented students.

“So you would have students in this room deported?” asked the teacher.

The panelist replied, “Yes, I would if they were illegal. You bet.”

Rodriguez also told the teacher if the person is here illegally, they are breaking the law.

“You know what I would have? I would have you teach more balanced – conservative,” added Rodriguez.

After those remarks is when the teacher made the Nazi comment saying, “You can just say what you are – a Nazi.”

Edgewood ISD will not be taking any disciplinary action against the teacher.

“He realized he shouldn’t have gone that far, and he gave us a statement and expressed his concern and regret,” said district spokesperson Maclovio Perez.

Perez adds the teacher was at the town hall meeting on his own time and students were invited, but not required to go. Perez went onto to say the teacher is a good educator and has been with the district for more than six years.

The Tea Party would like the chance to go and speak to the districts high school students “to explain to them our position in a controlled, quite, calm manner” added Rodriguez.

Perez said he will proposed the idea to the school administration. (WOAI)

And they will politely blow it off. The Left yet again goes over the cliff and no one on the Left cares.It’s no big deal and we have the excuses to prove it. So what if this was the GOVERNMENT teacher. Gee, I wonder if he even teaches the Constitution?

Your kids are in good Hands at this school. 🙂

Proof: Eyehatehicks (comments): Good for him! lol All these tea party hicks want to name call Obama a socialist all the time! But we cant call them a Nazi when they act like fascists? lol yeah right, you feeble minded Republicans can talk a lot of trash but you cant back it up! Good job! lmao

That’s what your dealing with, 2 years olds. Get used to it. (bet he doesn’t even know what the words mean…can you hear the parrot voice in his head?).

Godwin’s Law: As an online discussion grows longer, the probability of a comparison involving Nazis or Hitler approaches 1. In other words, Godwin observed that, given enough time, in any online discussion—regardless of topic or scope—someone inevitably criticizes some point made in the discussion by comparing it to beliefs held by Hitler and the Nazis.

That’s especially true of Liberals. You’re either a Racist, a Nazi, or just too stupid to understand their superiority.

If you feel so inclined to post a respectful disagreement with our dear Liberal email: Jonathan.Bryant@eisd.net

But do not violate Godwin’s Law in the process. But also, don’t expect a reply either.

But it is curious that that in the same town in May 2010 they were talking about suspending a teacher for even bringing up SB1070 in class because it was an “attack” on Mexicans.

But a Liberal calling someone a Nazi. No big deal. Move on, nothing to see here. 🙂

Commenter atomic weasal: You’re not officially winning an argument with a liberal until he stomps his foot, calls you a Nazi, takes his ball, and goes on home.

Or a racist, or some other childish assertion. Liberals don’t like debate.

Obama said 2012 would be an especially tough election because people are discouraged and disillusioned with government, but he also said he was determined because so much is at stake.

The GOP alternative, Obama said Sunday, is “an approach to government that will fundamentally cripple America in meeting the challenges of the 21st century.”

Remember “civility”, “compromise”, “unity” he doesn’t. 🙂

Another Government shutdown, you say?

At issue is a small part of the almost $4 trillion budget intended for an infrequent purpose: federal dollars to help victims of floods, hurricanes, tornadoes and other natural disasters and whether some of the expense should be offset by cuts in other government spending.

The current standoff raises a question: If lawmakers can’t even agree to help victims of natural disasters, how are they going to strike a deal to cut $1.5 trillion in spending this fall in the white-hot climate of presidential and congressional politics? (townhall.com)

They can’t. And they won’t. It’s that simple.

If Americans want to see some really fancy footwork, just watch the senior members of the Obama Administration as they do the hokey pokey. The President is, perhaps, the greatest dancer of all as he constantly talks about his policy goals, waves it all about, only to take it all back as he turns himself around.

He knows his speech/bill is not going to pass. He just wants the Republicans to take the blame for it. He throws a stink bomb in the run, it goes off, and it’s the Republicans fault. That’s all it is.

Vote for me, the other guys an asshole who doesn’t want to do anything and I do.

But the cure being worse than the disease is not on his mind. Just re-election at any cost.

President Obama puts his Left hand in, then takes his Left hand out; he does the hokey pokey and he twists himself around, and that’s what it’s all about! (Lurita Doan)

A LUMP OF COAL IN YOUR STOCKING

EPA: Causing electricity costs to necessarily skyrocket while killing American jobs one ridiculous regulation at a time.

Get ready, the EPA has implemented a new regulation called the “Cross-State Air Pollution Rule,” and it’s going to cost a lot of a money and Americans will pay with their jobs. The new rule will force coal power plants to limit emissions and pay for emissions that cross state lines through the air. From the EPA website: 

The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) finalized a rule that protects the health of millions of Americans by helping states reduce air pollution and attain clean air standards. This rule, known as the Cross-State Air Pollution Rule (CSAPR), requires 27 states to significantly improve air quality by reducing power plant emissions that contribute to ozone and/or fine particle pollution in other states. (Sounds a Bit “Cap & Trade”-y doesn’t it!) 🙂

“The EPA is ignoring the cumulative economic damage new regulations will cause,” said Steve Miller, president and CEO of the American Coalition for Clean Coal Electricity.  “America’s coal-fueled electric industry has been doing its part for the environment and the economy, but our industry needs adequate time to install clean coal technologies to comply with new regulations.   Unfortunately, EPA doesn’t seem to care.”

Susan Kraemer at CleanTechnica can barely contain her excitement at the prospect of environmental regulations. In an article titled “Obama’s EPA Cues 130 Billion Race to Cut Pollution By 2015”, she reports that the EPA will shut down 20 percent of coal plants through the Cross-State Air Pollution Rule. She acknowledges the cost of these regulations ($130 billion), but insists that this is actually good for the economy.

How, pray tell, does $130 billion in regulatory expenses transform into a $130 billion boon?

Because it will push coal plants out of the way and free up energy production for green technology, of course! (the fact that “green” energy is at least 20 years from viability doesn’t matter- The Agenda is The Agenda! ans we’ll force it on you whether you like or need it we don’t care. It makes us “feel” good.)

The EPA will shut down an estimated 20% of the nation’s coal plants through the ground-level ozone rule (the Cross-State Air Pollution Rule (CSAPR) ) through cap and trade that is about to be implemented in January 2012. Opponents of the Obama administration’s “over-reaching” EPA say these are costly regulations. Financial analysts estimate that the cost of this rule will be $130 billion by 2015. But if that figure is correct, that’s good news for the US economy.

Because there is another way of looking at that $130 billion “expense”. One industry’s expense is another industry’s sales bonanza. For the coal industry’s balance sheet, it is an expense, but think about who is going to perform this $130 billion cleanup – fairies? Hardly. This is a job for real American industries.

In the most depressed economy since the Great Depression, a slew of US companies will be selling the clean energy solutions (and adding employees to manufacture them) as coal companies must begin a race to have the least polluting coal plants.

Source: Clean Technica (http://s.tt/13hj9)

Real American industries? Like Solyndra? Given all the green scandals that are coming to light, now might not be the best time to advocate these types of solutions. The kicker, though, comes in the last paragraph of the article:

A hand-full of coal industry plutocrats are simply not able to inject $130 billion into the US economy just taking cruise trips around the Mediterranean or whatever it is that they do with the profits that they don’t spend cleaning up.

If the concern is that coal plants don’t put enough money into the economy, then what’s going to happen once there are fewer of them? My guess is that we will be left on the hook for more large loans to green technology companies that eventually go bankrupt, and other goodies that could only come about when people like Kraemer decide they know best how companies should spend their profits. (townhall.com)

Say, are poor people going to be hurt by this? 🙂

So get out your vastly underpowered, over priced solar panels out and heat up your government approved no-fat, no-salt, no taste gruel then drive your electric car /hybrid car (if you can afford one that is)-according to the Energy Information Administration, vehicles that currently cost $15,000 will be regulated out of existence and be replaced by more expensive cars that meet fuel economy and emissions requirements. They claim they want to help poor people – but maybe they just want them dependent on the government for their transportation needs. 

But what we really don’t understand is why the Obama Administration would work to eliminate hundreds of thousands of good-paying jobs – many of them filled with union workers who swore a loyal oath to the President…the DeFour Group. . . estimates that auto industry job loss when the 55 to 66 mpg fuel standards are met in 2025 could reach 220,000) to your government approved job and be happy that the government runs your life for you.

Think I’m being hyperbolic?  Tom Vilsack, the same guy who said Food Stamps was an economic stimulus:

It’s not like you have a choice.

Perish the Thought. As a matter of fact, perish all thoughts. It’s much easier that way. That way you can never be a racist, politically incorrect, or a Nazi ever again.

Is’t that just peachy-keen neato! Like totally, for sure… 🙂

The Speech

The Almighty Barack Hussein Obama gave a speech last night and I have only 4 words in summary: I TOLD YOU SO!

President Obama’s address to Congress was exactly what we thought it would be: a shallow, callow campaign rally masquerading as something serious and important.  As Charles Krauthammer framed it on Fox, tonight’s address represented the first presidential campaign speech delivered in the House of Representatives in US history.

The tone and tenor of the address, which was sprinkled with superficial appeals to bipartisanship, was highly political and practically unhelpful.  Straw men were introduced and torched at record pace.

Spend More Money! Tax The “The Rich”!

Create more Union jobs and temporary “infrastructure” Union jobs.

Oh, and “Pass the Bill”! Only there is no bill. There aren’t any concrete, written specifics, but if you don’t pass it we’ll beat you senseless Republicans! (But we will create one in a week-and-a-half, in the meantime we’ll beat you senseless first then tell you to pass it or else!)

Of course, we were going to do that anyhow, but who cares. We don’t.

“Just Pass the Bill” but not just any bill, like the Ryan Budget, or Cut, Cap & Balance, or any right wing “extremist” bill, a bill that we the left wing extremists can be happy with. That’s “compromise”, after all.

Just do as I say, not as I do.

President Barack Obama proposed a $447 billion jobs package (More Spending!!) on Thursday to help boost the U.S. economy (That’s worked so well before- I think it was called THE STIMULUS!) , challenging Congress to pass legislation made up largely of tax cuts for workers (the same ones that haven’t worked so far)  and businesses (but we’ll choke them with other taxes-The highest in the world and regulations and ObamaCare!)

“It will provide a jolt to an economy that has stalled and give companies confidence that if they invest and hire there will be customers for their products and services. You should pass this jobs plan right away,” Obama said.

The agreement we passed in July will cut government spending by about $1 trillion over the next ten years (That was a cut in the growth of expenses not actual expenses).  It also charges this Congress to come up with an additional $1.5 trillion in savings by Christmas.  Tonight, I’m asking you to increase that amount so that it covers the full cost of the American Jobs Act.  And a week from Monday, I’ll be releasing a more ambitious deficit plan – a plan that will not only cover the cost of this jobs bill, but stabilize our debt in the long run.  This approach is basically the one I’ve been advocating for months.

Can you hear The Punt (That’s right, Obama punted the heavy lifting to the super-committee, and pledged to introduce another general deficit plan in twelve days. ) from here and it sounds familiar…

The Stimulus and the Armageddon speeches he gave to get it passed. This is so 2009.

Taking aim at Republicans who have consistently opposed his economic initiatives, Obama said it was time to “stop the political circus and actually do something to help the economy.”

The political partisanship is entirely the Republicans fault, you know. 🙂

The 2 years prior to the Republicans taking the House 8 months ago doesn’t count.  It’s doesn’t matter. My words are supposed to be bigger than my inaction.

So what if every Republican led initiative has died in the Senate, it’s still their fault.
And we (Liberals) aren’t the partisans in this mess. 🙂

But after saying it was a crisis our Dear leader went on vacation for a Month. It was that “urgent”. Now he’s had his big speech, which doesn’t have a plan yet, but you have to “just pass the bill” and we’ll come out with a plan in a week-and-a-half. We’ll lead from behind as always.

Obama said he would propose a deficit-reduction plan on Sept. 19 that will cover the cost of his jobs bill and include “modest adjustments” to Medicare and Medicaid and more taxes for the rich and corporations. (Unlike the $500 Billion Obamacare is supposed to cut so it can be double counted as savings! or the evil Ryan Plan 🙂 )

“A week from Monday, I’ll be releasing a more ambitious deficit plan — a plan that will not only cover the cost of this jobs bill, but stabilize our debt in the long run,” he said Thursday to Congress in his speech on job creation.

So the tease and denial continues. After all, Keynesian Economics and his own rigid Ideology prevent him from doing what is really necessary.

So the media tease continues. But you have to “just pass the bill”. 🙂

“…by making modest adjustments to health care programs like Medicare and Medicaid; and by reforming our tax code in a way that asks the wealthiest Americans and biggest corporations to pay their fair share,” he said. (CNBC)

Soak the Rich. As for “fair share” get I though paying the the majority of taxes ALREADY would be enough, after all 47% of all American Pay NO taxes at all and $4.2 Billion dollars in tax refunds went to Illegal Aliens.

And we have to remember that his definition of “millionaires and billionaires” starts at $200,000 a year.

Tax Year 2008 (latest available): Top 5% (which fit into his category of “millionaires and Billionaires” : 58.72%

The Bottom 50% pay 3% of all Taxes.

But it’s “fair” to tax them even more because they aren’t paying their “fair share”.

Class Warfare at it’s ugliest.

So we Have Tax & Spend Keynesian Stimulus.

We Have raise taxes on the rich. Class Warfare.

So what was different from before last night? NOTHING!

But you have to wait until Sept 19th for his “urgent” plan that will take him a month-and-a-half to put together on his vacation and now his tease and denial.

Can the media stand the hype or will they orgasm all over themselves before Sept 19th. Tune in and find out!

That’s very “urgent”.  It’s ANOTHER CRISIS! And we all know “never waste a crisis”. 🙂

Two quick examples that illustrate why this entire spectacle was a sham.

(1) Obama lamented teacher layoffs: “While they’re adding teachers in places like South Korea, we’re laying them off in droves.  It’s unfair to our kids.  It undermines their future and ours.  And it has to stop.  Pass this jobs bill, and put our teachers back in the classroom where they belong.” But later in the speech, he went out of his way to condemn budget fixes like Wisconsin’s, which limited collective bargaining “rights” for government employees, but has saved thousands of teachers’ jobs.

(2) The president demanded swift action on three pending trade agreements, heavily implying that Congress has been dragging its feet on these items: “Now it’s time to clear the way for a series of trade agreements that would make it easier for American companies to sell their products in Panama, Colombia, and South Korea…”  But the reason these agreements have stalled is because he refuses to send them to Congress unless Republicans agree to lard them up with special goodies for labor unions.
Liberals on MSNBC and Twitter seem to be energized by Obama’s aggressive performance.  They think this was just what the doctor ordered, and that Republicans have been put on notice, or something. 

Liberals?  Excited by a passionate, but ultimately unserious, Obama campaign speech?  Color me stunned.

If President Obama plan to convince Americans that the economy sucks because the GOP wouldn’t go along with every last piece of his re-run stimulus plan, let him try.  “You should pass it.  And I intend to take that message to every corner of this country.”  Go for it, champ. (Guy Benson)

Armageddon Is Upon Us! Repent!

The so-called (by themselves) “Last Hope of the Middle Class” lost yesterday.

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — The nearly month-long standoff in the Wisconsin Legislature over explosive union rights legislation rocketed toward a dramatic finish Thursday after Senate Republicans outmaneuvered their missing Democratic counterparts and pushed through the bill.

The dramatic turn of events late Wednesday set up a perfunctory vote Thursday morning in the Assembly on the measure that would strip nearly all collective bargaining rights from most public workers. Once the bill passes the Assembly, it heads to Republican Gov. Scott Walker for his signature.

So the 88% of people not in any Union and the 93% of us not in a Public Sector union are now doomed to be slaves of our oppressive capitalist bosses!

Dr Ray Stantz: Fire and brimstone coming down from the skies! Rivers and seas boiling!
Dr. Egon Spengler: Forty years of darkness! Earthquakes, volcanoes…
Winston Zeddemore: The dead rising from the grave!
Dr. Peter Venkman: Human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together… mass hysteria!

Evil! Pure Evil! Armageddon is upon us all!

For the 93% of us not in a Union we are all doomed!!

Uh…yeah…whatever…

Senate Democratic leader Mark Miller of Monona says Democrats will “join the people of Wisconsin in taking back their government,” but he refused to say when.

Gee, we’ve been saying that about  the Left, Obama, and ObamaCare for 2 years now. 🙂

Funny how the Left won’t see it that way. 🙂

“In 30 minutes, 18 state senators undid 50 years of civil rights in Wisconsin. Their disrespect for the people of Wisconsin and their rights is an outrage that will never be forgotten,” said Democratic Senate Minority Leader Mark Miller. “Tonight, 18 Senate Republicans conspired to take government away from the people.”

Public Sector Union= Civil Rights. Interesting juxtaposition. 😦

But, you know what, I and many of the Tea Party have said the exact same thing about Obama and The Left.

Funny how that happened?

And electing Obama was supposed to unify us all, after all he was “The First Black President”.

I don’t think The Left will see the irony.

So what are the Democrats (not in the Legislature) up to now that they lost.

Simple. Recall the Republicans. The dirty rotten bastards defied us!!

How’s this for states’ rights?

This morning (Wednesday), Wisconsin Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald said in a radio interview that President Obama’s political team is directly involved in burgeoning efforts to recall Republican elected officials (emphasis on the word “elected,” as in chosen by the people of Wisconsin in a democratic vote four months ago):

“There’s many people that are beginning to believe this is a delay tactic by the Democrats in the Senate so that these recall elections can be organized by the Obama team out of Chicago, which they are, as we start to do the research on the people that have filed the petition,” Fitzgerald told Newsradio 620 WTMJ’s “Wisconsin’s Morning News.”

The Chicago Union Leg-breakers are on the case.

Expect to see “expose’s” a plenty as the smear campaign ratchets up. After all, no one does smear jobs better than pissed off Democrats who don’t get their way.

Nationwide liberal groups Progressive Change Campaign Committee, based in Washington, and Democracy for America, based in Vermont, have raised more than $500,000 online in the past week.

Not the People of Wisconsin, you notice.  Oh no! This is Liberal Moral Outrage!

How dare you defy them!! The Almighty!

You heathens! You will be struck down!

Obama, Jan 12, 2011: But at a time when our discourse has become so sharply polarized – at a time when we are far too eager to lay the blame for all that ails the world at the feet of those who think differently than we do – it’s important for us to pause for a moment and make sure that we are talking with each other in a way that heals, not a way that wounds.

So much for the “New Tone”, “Civility” or “Adult Conversations” This is all out war!

We are the Rebels. They are Qaddafi and it’s War!!  JIHAD HAS BEEN DECLARED!!

The gauntlet has been thrown down.

The LEFT will destroy you for this you heathen peasants!

HOW DARE YOU!!!!

Meanwhile the 88% of us not in Unions and the 93% of us who aren’t in a Public Sector Union still have to pay for own benefits and our own ObamaCare largely by ourselves.

And the Federal Union employees who had their collective bargaining outlawed by President Jimmy Carter and the Democrats themselves just look on incredulously.

But don’t worry, The Liberal hyperbole machine is going into high gear– Armageddon is upon us.

The Rapture is just minutes away. So you must repent for your sins against the Liberal Orthodoxy or be cast down in the fires of Hell forever!

Repent you evil sinners! 🙂

NPR : Republican state senators in Wisconsin figured out how to pass controversial budget repair legislation without the help of missing senate Democrats. In a sudden move Wednesday evening, GOP senators stripped all the financial proposals from the bill but kept the language ending many collective bargaining rights from nearly all public sector unions.

Now imagine a year ago, after 15 months of “debate” by Democrats on Obamacare, the same opening paragraph:

Democrat senators in Washington figured out how to pass controversial health care legislation without the help of senate Republicans . In a sudden move Wednesday evening, Democrat senators passed the House version of the bill without any changes in a parliamentary maneuver.

Gee, sounds familiar somehow? 🙂

But, remember, Liberals get REALLY REALLY PISSED OFF when you do exactly as they do to them and not just do as they say!!

A Leftist at Us News and World Report: When a politician says that something is just about the budget and not about grinding ideological axes, it’s really grinding ideological axes.

I wonder if he said that about Obamacare, The FDA, EPA, Cap & Trade, Dodd Financial Reform, Homeland Security, The Justice Department, Illegal Immigration, Suing Arizona….probably not.

It was HIS AXE!! 🙂

The “new tone” is even MORE VITRIOL than before, if that is even possible.

So much for “civility”. This is war!!

We have defied the will of the Left and that shall not stand! 🙂

The Evil Corporate Fascists who passed this must be crushed!

(am I going over-the-top just a bit? am I really?)

Ann Coulter: Can we stop acting as if people who work for the government are the heroes of working people?

Fine, we understand that Wisconsin public sector employees like the system that pays them an average of $76,500 per year, with splendiferous benefits, and are fighting like wildcats against any proposed reforms to that system. But it’s madness to keep treating people who are promoting their own self-interest as if they are James Meredith walking into the University of Mississippi.

This isn’t how we usually view people fighting for their own economic interests.

When Wall Street opposes financial reforms or a tobacco company opposes new cigarette taxes, no one hails them as “working men and women” who “deserve a decent pay and decent retirement.” We’re not told Wall Street has a “fundamental right” not to be regulated, or tobacco companies promoting their own interests are just trying to “help working people and middle-class people retain a good job in America.” People on the other side of the issue aren’t said to be “just trying to kick the other guy in the shin and exterminate him.”

And yet all that was said by the Democratic governor of Illinois, Pat Quinn, on MSNBC’s “Hardball” last week, about government workers fighting to preserve their own Alex Rodriguez-like employment contracts.

Yes, we understand that public sector employees got themselves terrific overtime, holiday, pension and health care deals through buying politicians with their votes and campaign money. But now, responsible elected officials in Wisconsin are trying to balance the budget.

MSNBC is covering the fight in Wisconsin as if it’s the 9/11 attack — and the Republicans are al-Qaida. Its entire prime-time schedule is dedicated to portraying self- interested government employees as if they’re Marines taking on the Taliban. The network’s Ed Schultz bellows that it is “morally wrong” to oppose the demands of government employees.

Yes, and I guess pornographers are noble when they launch a full-scale offensive against obscenity laws.

Public sector workers are pursuing their own narrow financial interests to the detriment of everyone else in their states. That’s fine, but can we stop pretending it’s virtuous?

Because of the insane union contracts in Wisconsin, one Madison bus driver, John E. Nelson, was able to make $159,000 in 2009 — about $100,000 of which in overtime pay. Jackie Gleason didn’t make that much playing bus driver Ralph Kramden on “The Honeymooners.” Seven bus drivers took home more than $100,000 that year.

When asked about the outrageous overtime pay for bus drivers — totaling $1.94 million in 2009 alone — Transit and Parking Commission Chairman Gary Poulson said: “That’s the contract.”

It’s ludicrous to suggest that these union contracts were fairly bargained. Only one side was at the negotiating table. Ordinary people with jobs were not at the meetings where public sector compensation was discussed.

Union hacks play on our heartstrings, weeping about the valuable work government employees do: These are the people who educate our children, run into burning buildings and take dangerous criminals off our streets!

Politicians who do not immediately acquiesce to insane union demands are invariably accused of hating teachers, nurses or cops. In California, this has been standard operating procedure for decades. The voters never seem to catch on.

In 1972, E. Richard Barnes lost his re-election campaign to the California state Assembly after being accused by cops and firefighters of coddling criminals.

In fact, Barnes, a conservative Republican, had one of the toughest records on crime. But he had voted against fringe benefits and better pension benefits for public employees.

Years later, in 2005, Don Perata, Democratic state senator from Oakland, suggested that the legislature reconsider the requirement that 40 percent of the entire state budget be spent on public schools. The teachers’ unions instantly plastered his district with fliers calling him anti-education. Perata is a far-left Democrat, who had himself been a teacher for 15 years before entering politics.

Fine, we like teachers, firemen and police officers. We appreciate them. (And for the record, it is statistically more dangerous to be a farmer, fisherman, steelworker or pilot than a cop or fireman. Soldiers also have pretty dangerous jobs, and they don’t get to strike.)

Does that mean we should pay them $1 million dollars a year? How about $10 million? After all, these are the people who educate our kids, run into burning buildings and take dangerous criminals off our streets!

Assuming the answer is no, then apparently we’re allowed to discuss government workers’ compensation — even though they do important work. As George Bernard Shaw concluded his famous quip (often attributed to Winston Churchill), “Now, we’re just negotiating over the price.”

Why do public sector employees have absurd overtime rules? Why don’t they pay for their own health insurance? Why do they get to retire at age 45 with a guaranteed pension of 65 percent of their last year’s pay — as state police in New Jersey do?

This is asymmetrical warfare. Seven percent of the population cares intensely about public sector union contracts — and nothing else. The remaining 93 percent of voters can’t be bothered to care.

Meanwhile, state after state spirals into bankruptcy.

But it’s not as if the Democrats and Unions actually care. This is THEIR MONEY  and THEIR SACRED RIGHT to suck off your money for their own good that matters and how dare you defy them!!

Who cares if 88% of America is not in a Union and has to pay for their own retirement with their own money.

Not Democrats.

Armageddon is upon us all. And the democrats will be sure to beat that drum 24/7 from now until Hell freezes over!

Larry Elder: Charlie Sheen, at least, has an excuse. He’s on a drug he calls “Charlie Sheen.”

But what powerful hallucinogen inhaled by the left induces the mental fantasy that makes them believe:

Spending nearly a trillion dollars in “stimulus” money “created or saved” 3.5 million jobs?

A “tax cut” means giving checks to the nearly 40 percent of the workforce that pays no federal income taxes?

Racism drives the tea party/conservative/right-wing criticism of a left-wing black president — who received more of the white vote than John Kerry, in every age demographic, and who at one time enjoyed an approval rating of almost 70 percent?

Government can “invest” in “green jobs of the future” better than can the private sector, can pick winners and losers better than the marketplace, and can do this while not rewarding those with political influence or punishing those without it?

The rich pay no taxes — even though the top 1 percent of income-earners pay nearly 40 percent of all federal income taxes?

Tax cuts only benefit the rich — even though they disproportionately pay the income taxes (see above)?

Federal and state budget problems can be solved by simply raising taxes on “the rich” and making them pay “their fair share”?

Governors’ attempts to rein in public-sector compensation — because it vastly exceeds the private-sector counterparts — constitute an “assault” on “all unions”?

Expensive, anti-competitive, job-killing “global warming” regulations imposed on U.S. businesses can significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions — even though the No. 1 and No. 4 “polluters,” China and India, respectively, say, “Go to hell, we’re growing our economies”?

ObamaCare adds 30 million uninsured to the insured; allows people to keep their doctor or health insurance; forces health insurance companies to “insure” applicants with pre-existing illnesses — all while saving money, lowering costs and retaining the same quality?

President Barack Obama presented a “fiscally responsible” 2012 budget — even though it adds to the debt, continues high annual deficits and changes nothing about the three autopilot entitlement programs, Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid?

“Greed” and lack of Wall Street regulation caused the housing meltdown — even though the Community Reinvestment Act, Freddie Mac, Fannie Mae and the Federal Housing Administration distorted behavior; pressured lenders to give loans to the “underrepresented”; incentivized people who should have been renting to buy homes; and put taxpayers on the hook for the losses?

“ObamaCare” is a racist and offensive word — but not “RomneyCare” or HillaryCare?

The Muslim Brotherhood is “primarily secular”?

Health care is a “right” — but keeping a handgun in your own home should be a crime?

Public education can be fixed by spending more money — without allowing greater parental choice and more competition against government schools?

If millions of illegal aliens would likely vote Republican, liberals would (SET ITAL) still (END ITAL) support putting them on a pathway to citizenship?

If convicted felons would likely vote Republican, liberals would (SET ITAL) still (END ITAL) push to restore their full “voting rights”?

Right-wing “vitriolic rhetoric” caused the mass shooting in Tucson — but left-wing rhetoric like MSNBC’s Chris Matthews’ description of former House Speaker Newt Gingrich as “a car bomber” does no damage?

The Bush tax cuts for the rich “caused the deficit” — even though Obama says maintaining the current rates for the top 2 percent of income-earners “costs” $700 billion over 10 years, or for each year, less than 5 percent of the current annual deficit?

The war in Iraq caused the deficit — even though the combined annual costs of the Afghanistan and Iraq wars represent about 10 percent of the current annual deficit?

President George W. Bush and his policies made America hated in the Middle East — even though polls show the Egyptians have a lower opinion of America under Obama than they did under Bush?

Obama can convince Iran from continuing its nuclear weapons programs — by criticizing Israel for building “settlements,” and by breaking missile defense promises made to the Czech Republic and Poland to get Russia’s help in pressuring Iran?

Questioning Obama’s place of birth or religion is insanity — but not believing that “Bush lied, people died”; Bush had prior knowledge of 9-11; Bush allowed America to be attacked on 9-11 to provide a pretext for war in Iraq; 9-11 was a government-involved inside job; and that WTC Building 7 imploded from planted explosives?

Bush governed as an evil, civil liberty-crushing warmonger — even though Obama continues the same war on terror programs and policies, including the use of the “state secrets” courtroom defense to prevent national-security-sensitive documents from being turned over to the defense; rendition; the terrorist surveillance program; the Patriot Act, including the despised library provision; drone attacks in Pakistan; and the continued use of Guantanamo Bay prison?

Obama fulfilled his campaign promise to reduce the influence of lobbyists — while members of his administration hold meetings (SET ITAL) off White House premises (END ITAL) to avoid the requirement of having to keep a record of the meetings?

So here’s the question. As between Charlie Sheen and the nonsense-believing left-wingers, who should be drug tested?

I already now the Left is on drugs, it’s call Power and money begets Power. And Democrats get the majority of their money from Unions and Unions take it forcefully from taxpayers.

And Wisconsin just cut them off and the addicts are howling!!!!
