San Bernadino

liberal gun violence

Nuff said.

It’s all our Political Opponents fault!

They are Evil!

It’s the Guns Fault. If people just didn’t have guns this wouldn’t happen!

That about sums up the Democrats and Liberals response to 2 Arabs shooting up a Social Center.

Authorities identified one of the suspects as Syed Rizwan Farook, 28, an environmental health specialist at the San Bernardino County Health Department.  Late Wednesday night, police identified the second suspect as Tashfeen Malik, 27.

Both we killed in a Police shoot out.

I suppose that was the Police’s fault. They were being Islamophobic. 🙂

It must be “workplace violence”. (which it could be…)

The Los Angeles Times reported that Farook attended a San Bernardino County Department of Health holiday event at the Inland Regional Center, and that he got into a fight with someone before returning with two accomplices to shoot up the place.

He Was An American Citizen. The media were quick to point this out, though they did not state whether he was born in the United States or naturalized here. He graduated in 2003 from La Sierra High School and studied finance at California State University Fullerton until 2013.

He Was A Religious Muslim. According to his father, he was “very religious. He would go to work, come back, go to pray, come back. He’s Muslim.” A neighbor said, “He was quiet but always polite. Maybe two years ago he became more religious. He grew a beard and started to wear religious clothing. The long shirt that’s like a dress and the cap on his head.”

Farook Worked For The Government. He was a business taxes representative for the California State Board of Equalization. His father told The New York Daily News that his son “inspected restaurants and hotels for health violations, and was married with a child,” according to The Washington Times.

Early on they even tried to float that there was a Planned Parenthood 2 blocks away so this was another attack on THEM.

Christine Nangle, a writer for Inside Amy Schumer, blamed pro-lifers:

As news of the deadly shooting unfolded in California, MSNBC riled many by reporting the status of the local Planned Parenthood clinic.

Hyper-partisanship is disgusting.

Less than an hour into the breaking news of the shooting, Markos Moulitsas, founder of Daily Kos and co-founder of Vox, blamed the GOP for “shooting up America.”

M.S. Bellows, Jr., a contributor to The Guardian, Alternet and Huffington Post advocated violence against NRA members, comparing them to Nazis:

He went on to blame the NRA for “stoking the conditions for mass shootings”:

NEVER LET A CRISIS GO TO WASTE.

After all, it’s the Guns fault. Anyone opposed to Absolute 100% Gun Control is a crazy loon waiting to go off and it’s my political/idedological opponents fault!

What about Illegal Aliens, terrorists, and “refugees” let in by Liberals??

RACIST!  ISLAMOPHOBIA!!

🙂

UPDATE 9:20 PM PT: A neighbor of Farook’s now apparently says that she didn’t report his suspicious activity so as not to be accused of racial profiling.

‘Nuff Said…

Igor Volsky of ThinkProgress was so enamored of prayer shaming that he devoted his day to calling out politicians who offered thoughts and prayers rather than “actual gun reform,” whatever that entails.

My thoughts and prayers are with lawmakers actually passing gun reform in my lifetime.

That’s only a fraction of Volsky’s effort today, but you get the idea. It’s too bad that much work was based on the mistaken assumption that prayer precludes action. It also ignores President Obama’s message to today’s victims and his failure to convince the American public to buy into his ever-nebulous “actual gun reform.”

4/2 it (is) US

Well, yesterday was an extreme day. Today, my computer eats my blog.

So, like many things I have to start over again.

So here goes…

Yesterday was quite a day. Obama cemented his “legacy” in his mind and how “safe” the world will be because of him. The Iranians called him a liar and basically said they were going to do what they were going to do anyways.

And a little Pizza Shop in Indiana became Ground Zero for the Leftist Nuke attack on Freedom.

The “tolerant” Left threatened to “burn down” Memories Pizza. They trashed the store’s social media, hacked its website, made the family fear for their lives, and destroyed the business.

The Police have a patrolman outside the closed doors of the business 24/7 to keep the “tolerant” and “diversity” loving Left from vandalizing the physical store.

Then the Right sets up a Go Fund Me page for the store and it raises $300,000+ in 1 freaking day!

We are now a nation of extremes. The volcano can off at any second of any day and it burns everything in it’s path, especially Freedom.

With the Left you have one choice: Do everything they want and believe everything they believe 100% or you’re a “bigot” or a “racist” or both. End of Discussion.

And if you are either, then you are sub-human a deserve absolutely no human decency whatsoever. You are so far beneath their contempt you might as well be microscopic.

But remember, these are the “tolerant” ones. If you not 100% with them, you’re the enemy.

They only want to “burn down” your business and destroy you and everything about you because you dared to cross them.

So you want Peace, do as they say without hesitation,deviation or even a rational thought and everything will be wonderful.

FREEDOM IS SLAVERY.

You want Freedom, do as they say and they’ll leave you alone. But, Big Brother is watching you and you never know when a “gotcha” journalist will turn up at your door trying to trap you.

So, you aren’t Paranoid, the LEFT really is out to get you.

Be Afraid, Be Very Afraid.

And if you set up a Go Fund Me page as a protest to help a business owner who was firebombed by Leftists its just proof positive that a) it was all a ploy to begin or b) that there are a lot of bigots out there that will help out a fellow bigot. The idea that it might be kind hearted people who feel that the owner was done wrong by extremists and they, out of the kindness of their hearts, want to help a fellow American who has been the subject of a Leftist Terror Attack is obvious ridiculous in the extreme.

They are all just bigots.

So if you don’t want to be a “bigot” or a “racist” you just do everything your Leftist Slave Master says and you don’t even think of defying Leftist Big Brother, or else you could find that you’re a pariah and have your life destroyed in an instant by the Left flash Mob of “tolerance” and “diversity”.

For example:  a couple of You Tube Commenters put it so eloquently: “I wouldn’t piss on that bigoted cunt if she was on fire. Personal beliefs end where civil liberties begin.”

“America doesn’t tolerate racist homophobic whitewing trash anymore. You lost. Now kill yourself. LOL!”

They destroyed George Zimmerman, who eventually was acquitted of any wrong-doing by a jury of his peers. Then they destroyed Darren Wilson, also acquitted by a jury who had all the facts. They next destroyed the City of Ferguson, MO (amazingly, no charges filed against anyone ;-). Now they’ve destroyed a father-daughter small-time pizza establishment. Thanks, lefties!!

You’re Next! Are you now or have you ever been a “bigot or a “racist”?

Think very carefully, you’re life may depend on it. 🙂

And on that bombshell… Peace and Love from The “tolerant” “compassionate” “loving” diversity filled dreams of the Left. 🙂

The Liberal Arts

Thomas Sowell:

An op-ed piece titled “Conservatives, Please Stop Trashing the Liberal Arts” appeared last week in the Wall Street Journal. But it is not conservatives who trashed the liberal arts.

Liberal professors have trashed the liberal arts, by converting so many liberal arts courses into indoctrination centers for left-wing causes and fads, instead of courses where students learn how to weigh conflicting views of the world for themselves. Now a professor of English, one of the most fad-ridden of the liberal arts today, blames conservative critics for the low esteem in which liberal arts are held.

Surely a professor of English cannot be unaware of how English departments, especially, have become hotbeds of self-indulgent, trendy fads such as trashing classic writings — using Shakespeare’s works as just another ideological playground for romping through with the current mantra of “race, class and gender.”

Surely he cannot be unaware of the many farces of the Modern Language Association that have made headlines. And when our English professor uses a phrase like “critical thinking,” he must be at least dimly aware of how often those words have been perverted to mean uncritical negativism toward traditional values and uncritical acceptance of glittering catchwords of the left, such as “diversity.”

Diversity of political ideas is not to be found on most college campuses, where the range of ideas is usually from the moderate left to the extreme left, and conservatives are rare as hen’s teeth among the faculty — especially in English departments. Academics who go ballistic about an “under-representation” of ethnic minorities in various other institutions are blissfully blind to the under-representation of conservatives among the professors they hire. On many campuses, students can go through all four years of college without ever hearing a conservative vision of the world, even from a visiting speaker.

The problem is not political, but educational. As John Stuart Mill pointed out, back in the 19th century, students must hear opposing views from people who actually believe them, not as presented by people who oppose them. In the 18th century, Edmund Burke warned against those who “teach the humours of the professor, rather than the principles of the science.”

During my years on the lecture circuit, I liked to go into college bookstores across the country and see how many of their courses assigned “The Federalist” among the books students were to buy, as compared to how many assigned “The Communist Manifesto” or other iconic writings on the left.

“The Federalist” is a classic, written by three of the men who were among those who wrote the Constitution of the United States. It is a book of profound thoughts, written in plain English, at a level aimed at the ordinary citizen.

It might even be called “The Constitution for Dummies.” There are Supreme Court Justices who could benefit from reading it.

My survey of college bookstores across the country showed “The Communist Manifesto” virtually everywhere, often required reading in multiple courses — and “The Federalist” used virtually nowhere. Most college students will get only the left’s uncritical negativism toward the American form of government, under the rubric of “critical thinking.”

The liberal arts in theory could indeed make valuable contributions to the education of the young, as our English professor claims. But the liberal arts in practice have in fact done the opposite, not just in the United States but in other countries as well.

The history of the 20th century shows soft-subject students and their professors among the biggest supporters of extremist movements, both fascist and communist — the former in central and eastern Europe before World War II and the latter in countries around the world, both before and after that war.

Those who want liberal arts to be what they were supposed to be will have to profoundly change them from what they have become. Doing that will undoubtedly provoke more denunciations of critics for “trashing” the liberal arts by criticizing those who have in fact already trashed the liberal arts in practice.

Case in point: Apparently there is a poll out there that says that the American people are in favor of giving Nuclear Weapons to Iran so they can nuke us with them in the future. Now, how could that be?

Oh, right, the Liberal News Intelligensia (The Liberal Art of TV News) said so and then you click over to “Dancing with The Stars”…That’s how. 🙂

Public Servant

Lois Lerner — faithful, impartial public servant:

Fascinating

He is after all, the most Interesting Man in The World. Stay thirsty my friends.
🙂

Here’s what I find fascinating.

VP Biden makes his “chains” comment and almost immediately every liberal and liberal biased media person comes screaming out of the wood work to “contextualize” it to minimize it, to “explain” it away.

But a Republican makes a gaffe and nearly  week later those same people are still having a field blaming every Republican that has ever lived for it.

Well, count veteran Congressman Charlie Rangel among Mr. Biden’s critics on the Democratic side of the aisle.

“The Vice President said he’s going to put “y’all in chains,’” Mr. Rangel told The Perez Notes in a recent free-wheeling interview. “Was he talking about slavery? You bet your ass he was. Was he using the vernacular? Yes, he was. Did he think it was cute? Yes, he did. Was it something stupid to say? You bet your life it was stupid.”

“It was something that if a black had said it, we would have been laughing, because we would know deep down, they may be beating the hell out of us but they ain’t thinking about putting us into any chains,” he added.

But will that change anything? No. The extreme partisan bias and un-“fair” treatment will continue.

As I have said before, Liberals believe they can say anything, but you can’t. They can do anything, but you can’t.

You didn’t “build it” but they did.

The level of hubris and sheer balls is fascinating. And the fact that it’s also utter shameless is truly fascinating.

Mr. Biden raised eyebrows this afternoon with a speech in Minneapolis likening Mr. Romney and his fellow Republicans to “squealing pigs.”

Congressman Charlie Rangel blamed gridlock in Washington on an “extreme, conservative new element” in the Republican party that’s “willing to bring down the United States of America”

It sure a hell can’t be them!! The facts that the US Senate controlled by Democrats hasn’t passed a Budget in over 1200 days and continuously stonewalls anything the Republicans pass is the Republicans fault after all.

Fascinating.

“When the Democrats had the majority, we liberals who thought we were the heart of the party had to yield to conservative Democrats, because without them we would not have had the majority,”

Virtually every “conservative” Democrat was exterminated in the 2010 elections, by the extremists on the Left. But we won’t talk about that. They were a “centrist” majority. 🙂

Fascinating.

California’s Barbara Boxer opened the bidding this week in her familiar low-key style.

“There is a war against women, and Romney and Ryan — if they are elected — would become its top generals,” Boxer told a Planned Parenthood meeting. “There is a sickness out there in the Republican Party, and I’m not kidding. Maybe they don’t like their moms or their first wives.”

Reichsmarschall Romney and Generalissimo Ryan are both still married to their first wives, so it must be the moms. No wonder Ryan wants to throw his off a cliff.

To win the “war on women,” the Democratic Party’s general staff is planning its own Normandy invasion, adding to their convention line-up a host of stellar “pro-choice” speakers, including Desperate Housewife Eva Longoria, Planned Parenthood’s head honchette Cecile Richards, NARAL Pro-Choice America abortion supremo Nancy Keenan, and Georgetown Law’s contraceptive coed Sandra Fluke.

President Obama’s lavishly remunerated strategists have presumably run the focus groups and crunched the numbers. But if I were a moderate, centrist, eternally indecisive swing-voter in a critical state, and I switched on the Democrat convention to find a bunch of speakers warning about the threat to your abortion rights, I would find it a very curious priority in the summer of 2012.

None of us can know what the world will be like in four years, but one thing can be said for certain: an American woman will still enjoy her “right to choose.” Whether one supports or opposes abortion, the practical reality is that the biggest “threat” to your “right” to one is that you might have to drive a little bit farther for it.

Still, one should never underestimate the peculiar lens through which “progressives” view reality: The “war” on women boils down to Sandra Fluke, a 30-year old schoolgirl, demanding Georgetown Law should pay for its students’ contraceptives — notwithstanding that the entire cost of that four-year contraceptive bill works out to less than the first week’s paycheck of a Georgetown Law graduate’s first job (average starting salary: $160,000 per year). War is hell.

If you think Boxer’s right about Gen. Romney’s war on woman, feel free to waste your vote. But what else is likely to happen between now and the next time you cast a presidential ballot?

We’ve rehearsed the fiscal stuff in this space before: China becoming the world’s biggest economy, another American downgrade, total U.S. liabilities equivalent to about three times the entire planet’s GDP.

A “non-partisan” Pew Research study says the American middle class faces its “worst decade in modern history” — and the first bump down starts on Jan. 1. The equally “non-partisan” Congressional Budget Office now says that the tax and budget changes due to take effect at the beginning of 2013 will put the country back in recession and increase unemployment. This is a revision of their prediction earlier this year that in 2013 the economy would contract by 1.3%. Now they say 2.9%.

These days, CBO revisions only go one way — down. They’re gonna need steeper graph paper. In a global economy, atrophy goes around like syphilis in the Gay Nineties: A moribund U.S. economy further mires Europe, and both slow growth in China, which means fewer orders for resource-rich nations . . . Four wheels spinning in the mud, and none with a firm enough grip to pull the vehicle back on to solid ground.

Oh, well, it was like that in the 1930s and then, as the ever-optimistic Paul Krugman likes to trill, the Second World War came along to stimulate the economy. Given that in Afghanistan the U.S. and its allies have just taken 11 years to lose to goatherders with fertilizer, I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the global-conflagration chips falling our way next time round.

But don’t worry, ObamaCare will “lower costs.” Since passage of the bill in 2010, the CBO has revised its estimate of ObamaCare’s gross costs over 10 years. Can you guess in which direction, boys and girls? Yes, up from $944 billion to $1.856 trillion.

That’s some “revision.” I wonder where it’ll be in another two years.

Well, I’m not the CBO, but I’ll take a wild guess: ObamaCare is going to be expensive on a scale unknown to European health systems.(Mark Steyn)

Or human history, but that will be someone else on the right’s fault, after all. It can’t possibly be a Liberals fault, that never happens in their universe and shouldn’t happen in yours, you ignorant bigot.

Fascinating.

Here’s Stephanie Cutter’s quote in full — uttered Wednesday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” — just so no one can accuse us of taking anything out of context:

“Well, I think that worker probably has a good understanding of what’s happened over the past four years in terms of the president coming in and seeing 800,000 jobs lost on the day that the president was being sworn in, and seeing the president moving pretty quickly to stem the losses, to turn the economy around. And over the past, you know, 27 months we’ve created 4.5 million private-sector jobs. That’s more jobs than in the Bush recovery (or) in the Reagan recovery.”

You’d think that if the Obama campaign wanted to peddle outright fabrications, they’d at least do it so they weren’t so easily debunked.

Not that the mainstream press, so deep in the tank for Obama, will bother. (IBD)

Fascinating.

What’s more, after 29 months of allegedly stellar job growth under Obama, the jobless rate is still 8.3% (Over 8% since February 2009). By this point in the Reagan and Bush jobs recoveries, the unemployment rate was 7.2% and 4.9%, respectively.

If we were one of those fact-checking organizations, we’d give Stephanie Cutter the “Lying Liar from Liersburg” award. (IBD)

But she wouldn’t accept. After all, you’re just a partisan extremist if you don’t agree with a liberal.

To quote the 20th century American philosopher Mel Brooks, “It’s good to be king!”

Obama: “It is very rare I come to an event where I’m like the fifth or sixth most interesting person. Usually the folks want to take a picture with me, sit next to me, talk to me. That has not been the case at this event and I completely understand.” (ibd)

He is after all, the most Interesting Man in The World. Stay thirsty my friends.
🙂

Fascinating.

Anyway, the new Rasmussen poll reports that this time 51% of likely voters now fully expect reporters to help the incumbent Democrat keep his office, while only 9% expect reporters to help the Republican ticket of Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan. Nine percent? Really that much?

Other Rasmussen findings: 18% of likely voters, presumably deaf, blind and living in closets, can’t make up their minds, while 22% absolutely expect unbiased coverage throughout the remaining national agony and bonanza for commercial TV stations. Obviously, they only watch C-SPAN. (IBD)

Fascinating.

A choice between a career pol from the crooked Chicago machine with his aged crony who’s clearly off his meds, who want to insert government into every conceivable crevice of American life because they know best how to over-spend other people’s money; and on the other side, two handsome Republican men with clean records, lovely families and long lists of impressive achievements in both politics and business, who honor their countrymen by trusting that every American knows best how to build their own lives within a safe, prosperous and free society.

Once you remove the bias, see, the choice is really pretty simple.(IBD)

🙂

Fascinating.

Extremes

Bill O’Reilly: New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd writes: “Ryan should stop being so lovable. People who intend to hurt other people should wipe the smile off their faces.”

So in Dowd’s estimation, Ryan is in politics to harm the folks. He gets up every day and plots the personal damage he might be able to achieve.

This is now where we are in American politics. If Ryan’s reform vision will harm Americans, let’s hear some specifics. So far, under Obama, we have a sluggish economy, high employment and record debt. Sounds harmful to me.

But then again, I’m an extremist. (human Events)

🙂

If a person is to believe his media, he would have to accept that bringing discretionary spending back to 2008 levels, as Ryan has suggested, is like letting a Koch-funded plutocrat in war paint shred the social contract and throw it into a Klan-lit bonfire. Nearly every outlet, every interviewer, every reference about Ryan’s plan is imbued with a tone that asks, “Isn’t this nuts?”

But adding $11 trillion to the national debt, as Obama’s proposed budget does, well, that passes the levelheaded policy test. One day, perhaps when fact checkers take a break from crunching every uncompromising decimal point in Ryan’s budget proposal, they can explain how Obama’s plan is supposed to work and how spending without end ends — you know, for the kids.

If, that is, they survive. Medicare, as you’ve also heard, will cease to exist in its present form once free market jihadists storm the White House, abolish the program and exact their revenge on the elderly. And no, forcing Americans to participate in an entitlement mere years from its collapse is not a radical proposition. Rather, offering Americans who are 55 or younger a menu of (slightly more) competitive market options to drive down prices — funded at approximately the same level Obama proposes — can be forever referred to as “controversial.”

And when the president carves out $700 billion from Medicare as seed money for a new trillion-dollar entitlement project, we are keeping with our nonradical traditions, even if we have to force everyone to participate. When Ryan proposes similar cuts to extend the life of Medicare, he is a granny-starving Pericles.

Put it this way: Ryan’s plan injects the same reactionary idea into Medicare that the average American struggles with every day as he heads out into the marketplace to buy food or furniture or a phone — which, according to many Democrats, is the kind of social Darwinism that no decent person should ever be subjected to.

Which reminds me: If you happen to be attracted to some of the broader ideas in an Ayn Rand book, you, my friend, are an extremist for life. If, on the other hand, your ideological education was provided by an all-star lineup of leftist thinkers, you’re good. Certainly, no one is going to demand that you accept or repudiate the teachings of Frank Marshall Davis or Karl Marx in toto.

This is the world we’re in. In Washington, extremists stand (somewhat) firm on the idea of preserving decade-long tax rates in a terrible economy, whereas reasonable presidents have no qualms heading toward a fiscal cliff, as long as they have a class-envy tax hike to campaign on (for what is, in the context of spending, a pittance).

As it turns out, radicals provide budgets that curb growth by a few percentage points over many years, whereas rational politicians don’t even bother passing budgets.

Then again, Ryan the Unreasonable supported TARP, auto bailouts and Medicare expansions, so we can agree that radicalism does exist. It just depends, I suppose, on how you look at things. (human Events)

They generally shriek about “new tone” and “civility,” while trying to paint the Right as dangerous extremists, consisting of “hate groups.” The tolerance tyrants preach anti-”hate,” while being full of hate themselves. The shooting that occurred at the Family Research Council yesterday is further exposing this. And the media should be ashamed.

After first trying to sweep the news under their lapdog rugs, they then moved onto trying to spin it all away. (Michelle Malkin)

From The Washington Post news item:

Family Research Council security guard shot

A security guard a was shot and wounded after a scuffle with a man who expressed disagreement with the group’s conservative views.

Huh. Kind of like how Politico called SWAT-ting, a potentially deadly form of political terrorism, “an elaborate practical joke.” It’s totally hilarious when conservatives are put in harm’s way. What’s a little scuffle? It was simply a disagreement and stuff!

One of the Commentors on the Washington Post site:

Even Nazis like the FRC hate group should not be shot or murdered.

but the FRC is not just about self-righteous we are right you are wrong speech a la radio talk hosts.

It’s about advocating death and violence against gays and fomenting hatred spewing lies about gays such as  that they are child molesters.

Another:

When will we ever learn that this can only continue in the climate of hate created by the incendiary words of the Tea Party, regressive Right Radio and Fox News. First Gabby Gifford, then Aurora and now in DC, disturbed people have reacted to the words of fear and hate shouted by the reactionaries. The only way out is to go FORWARD!

Another:

Incidentally, I consider this man’s action foolish and counterproductive. As a convicted felon he may not be able to vote in November. He would have been more effective had he chosen to vote to keep Romney out of the office of president where, if he reaches, he will try to repeal Rowe vs, Wade and doom poor women to seek back street abortions or raise undernourished, underprivileged and undereducated children doomed to do menial jobs for his rich friends and cronies?

But What do I bnow, I’m just another “extremist” after all… 🙂

FEAR IS HOPE

NOVEMBER IS COMING

Cowardice

Liberal Education & Officious Bureaucracy Strikes again:

So remember:

Student: Do you know the Constitution? Administrator: Yes I do.

Student: You do? What does the First Amendment state?

Administrator: [It states] free speech [is permitted] in a designated time, place and manner.

And as you say 4 other officious little wanna-be Orwellians came by and parroted the same crap.

BTW, the “time place and manner” decision by the Supreme Court that these Liberals are hiding behind:

In conclusion, the U.S. Supreme Court has recognized that the crucial question [for application of time, place and manner restrictions] is whether the manner of expression is basically incompatible with the normal activity of a particular place at a particular time.@ Grayned v. Rockford, 408 U.S. 104, 116-18, 92 S.Ct. 2294 (1972). To that end, time, place and manner restrictions may be placed on expressive activities that Amaterially and substantially disrupt the operation or function of a university or interfere with the rights of its students to obtain an education.

Time, place and manner restrictions permit the University to avoid disruptions and protect the rights of speakers and those who want to listen. Examples of proper restrictions include those required to prevent disruptive activity, obstruction of vehicular or pedestrian traffic, excessive noise levels or noise that interferes with classroom‚ business or other university activities, interference with the normal functions and processes of the university or the rights of others to effectively use university facilities and property, blocking doorways, or an imminent threat of physical violence or destruction of property. On most university campuses, the responsibility for making time, place and manner determinations and decisions rests with the Dean of Students or similar representative.

So the administration called the cops and had their student records tarred.

Aren’t Liberals and Liberal Bureaucrats fun.

Oh, and media bias: The Young American Foundation, that sponsored the event was referred to repeated as “The NAU Conservatives”.  Fascinating…

Speaking of that…Our Dear Leaders “All or Nothing!” ‘Jobs’ Bill:

Clearly, after watching the video below, these students were not in violation of the law. They did not disrupt students, obstruct traffic, or interfere with the rights of others. Nevertheless, four different school administrators tried to silence them by forcing them into “designated spaces” away from the student body.

You Should Read Title 4 of the “American Jobs Act”. Then puke.

This is pure cowardly Obama. Over on the White House site, you can read the summary of the goodies. But when it gets to the part of paying for it, hahaha. That’s to come “later”.

Well, later for everybody who doesn’t know how to google up things. Here’s the text of the bill:

Also known as the “Obama Knows You’re A Bunch Of Rubes Act of 2011″

The tax increases are in Title IV, which starts around page 134-ish. Basically, it’s Obamunist class warfare on everybody making $125k (for married filing separately) or better.

From what I can tell, and I’m not a tax attorney (and you need to be one to read this gobbledygook pile of crap), ALL deductions are limited if you’re in the upper income bracket defined there. It looks like you’d get a nice haircut on your deductions including your mortgage. All without bracket relief. Gotta love that Obama.

It’s also got a lot of “The Secretary Shalls” in it, which is Obamaspeak for “We’ll make up the rules as we go along”. Obama needs a little Colonel’s outfit and some Idi Amin dark sunglasses. He’d be right at home running some South American banana republic.

The act also repeals tax breaks for new oil and gas drilling. The beat goes on. That’s in Subtitle D.

The other interesting thing is that the tax increases DO go into effect AND the Joint Committe is supposed to come up with $450 billion in new “deficit reduction”, which in Obamaspeak means more taxes. So he’s raising taxes by $450 billion with this act and then it also forces the joint committe to either cut spending (LOL) or raise taxes by another $450 billion.

A couple of other things:

*As far as I can tell, this bill is just like Porkulus I: A wealth transfer from the upper middle class to the construction unions. It’s got the usual state subsidies in there so the teacher’s unions stay funded.
*If you’re near AMT territory now, this bill ensures you will be smack in the middle of it as your deductions get whacked. This will force thousands more people into the AMT adders, and their tax bills will SKYROCKET from that.
*It also has some great perverse incentives. “Work sharing” will go into effect. Let’s say you’re sick of the 8 to 5 grind. Well, has Obama got a deal for you! Instead of getting laid off, you can voluntarily reduce your hours *and* have the feds pay you partial unemployment. The best of both worlds! Tell your boss, “Smell ya later!” at 12 noon and hit the beach for some waves. But still go to the bank and get paid for a full day. What’s not to love?!

*Here’s the thing about the SuperCommittee: We all know they’re never going to agree to just cut $1.5T in spending.  Oh, no.  There WILL be new taxes out of this.  By upping the ceiling by ANOTHER half a trillion, Obama figures he can wring even more taxes out of folks without anyone really tying it to him.  Because if the SC can’t agree, then the automatic triggers for defense and Medicare provider cuts kick in…and the GOP gets the blame.

Also, read Section 366 on the “Career Academies” and other assorted pork in the bill. You’ll love it.

David Axelrod gave away the game this morning by declaring that there will be no negotiations on the bill (Hat tip to HotAir): Axelrod speaketh

“We’re not in a negotiation to break up the package. It’s not an à la carte menu. It’s a strategy to get this country moving,” Axelrod said Tuesday on ABC’s “Good Morning America.”

“The president has a package; the package works together. We need to do many things to get this economy moving,” Axelrod said.

So in other words, you can stuff bipartisan compromise.  We want to have our cake and eat it, too.  And we want you to swallow this tax-and-transfer payola scheme so we can get kickbacks to the democrat party via all the unions we’re going to fund with taxpayer dollars.

GOP:  Circular-file this bill the second it shows up.  Most. Dishonest. President. Ever.

And if you don’t do exactly as we say you’re and obstructionist, extremist, partisan racist! 🙂

Where’s my industrial strength Barf bag….
