The Shell Game

Political Cartoons by Glenn McCoy

President Obama’s proposed 2013 budget will forecast a $901 billion deficit for next year, falling far short of his goal to halve the deficit in four years.

The budget, an outline of which was released by the White House Friday night, will show a higher deficit this year than in 2011, up from $1.3 trillion to $1.33 trillion.

So that’s 3 strikes and hopefully he’s out! What a Turkey!

Wonder if this one will go down 96-0 like last years.

Mind you the US Senate that hasn’t passed a Budget in 1, 018 days has already telegraphed that it has no intention of passing a budget this year anyhow.

So this is largely an exercise in campaign BS. Which is all we’ve gotten since January 20th, 2009 anyhow.

The full blown still-born cow of a budget comes out Monday. I’m sure it will bloated, class envious, have lots of flashy fake or useless “cuts”, and totally political. What else would you expect.

“We will talk more before the end of the month on what corporate tax reform would look like,” the official said on Friday, confirming that it would include a call for “lower rates.”

Facing a potentially tough presidential re-election challenge this November, Obama will propose cutting the rate following the release of his 2013 budget plan on Monday, February 13, according to the sources, who were not authorized to speak on the record.

While he spent a big part of his January speech to Congress criticizing businesses for moving jobs overseas, Obama said that “companies that choose to stay in America get hit with one of the highest tax rates in the world.”

So what do you wanna bet it’s going to be very selective and very “democratic”. 🙂

You do it my way or else. Or he’ll propose all new taxes to make up for it, disguised as something else or some other Orwellian turn of phrase.

Typically with this White House “tax reform” means bend over you’re about to get a massive enema!

Gene Sperling, director of Obama’s National Economic Council, has told reporters that the president will be laying out “principles” for corporate tax reform close to the budget release.

Obama’s corporate plan will also include a new minimum tax on foreign profits earned in low tax countries – an unpopular idea in the corporate community. (yahoo)

“principles” eh…This should be good… 😦

Ann Coulter:Having given up on pillorying Mitt Romney for plundering his way to vast wealth — because, unfortunately, it isn’t true — the Non-Fox Media seem to have settled on denouncing him as a rich jerk.

Liberals are disgusted by people who made their own money, as Romney did at Bain Capital. But they admire ill-gotten gains, which is how John Kerry, John Edwards, Jon Corzine, John F. Kennedy, Franklin D. Roosevelt and innumerable other spokesmen for the downtrodden amassed their fortunes.

Democrats are very proud of the rich, patrician FDR — who inherited all of his money and then launched a series of federal entitlements designed to bankrupt America 60 years later.

JFK also inherited his wealth, from a father who made his money as a bootlegger and stock manipulator. (In their defense, both went on to create jobs for bartenders and prostitutes.)

Kerry is in a special category of the gigolo. He acquired his fortune by marrying someone, who married someone, who inherited the money — leading Kerry’s children to refer to Teresa Heinz Kerry as their “step-money.” In what can only be described as luck, Kerry’s first wife was also an heiress.

I’ve been diligently searching for the shrieks of horror from the media over John Kerry’s tax returns when he ran for president eight years ago, but I can’t find anything. (Although I did find a reference to Kerry’s having served in Vietnam. Anybody else hear about that?)

Even when Kerry refused to release his wife’s tax returns in order to avoid the humiliation of revealing his allowance, the press was demurely silent.

John Edwards made well over $50 million by shaking down hardworking doctors with junk science lawsuits — as the New York Times has since admitted. The highlight of his sideshows was when he channeled unborn children in front of illiterate jurors.

(In the Democrats’ moral universe, the unborn have no right to life, but they’re perfectly acceptable as witnesses for the plaintiff in a malpractice suit.)

Democrats were overjoyed with Wall Street financier-turned Democratic politician Jon Corzine. It was just three years ago, in 2009, when President Obama was hailing Corzine as one of the “best partners I have in the White House.” Today, prosecutors are trying to find out what Corzine did with hundreds of millions of his customers’ money.

The media do everything they can to avoid looking into these mountebanks when they are active politicians. Then, when they’re out of office, the NFM summarily announce that they always knew the Democrats were sleazeballs, and why are we still talking about them?
It’s never a good time to talk about Democrat plutocrats until it’s way too late to talk about them. With Corzine, we’ll have a window of three seconds to talk about his financial shenanigans. He’s innocent until proved gui — Convicted! — What? You’re still burbling about that guy?

Liberals will be carrying on about Richard Nixon until we’re all long dead. Why has the time passed for them to really examine the man who was their vice presidential candidate only eight years ago and was desperately seeking the presidential slot four years ago?

Until we hear ferocious denunciations of FDR, JFK, Kerry, Edwards and Corzine, liberals have no business criticizing Bain Capital.

Maybe some people are irrationally offended by the rich, but Democrats aren’t. It’s the party of George Soros, Goldman Sachs and Nancy Pelosi!

The six wealthiest senators are all Democrats, half of whom married or inherited their money. Some other multimillionaire Democrats are:

• Jay Rockefeller of West Virginia, the second-richest senator after Kerry, who inherited his money.

• Dianne Feinstein of California, the sixth-richest senator, who married her money.

• Maria Cantwell of Washington, a bogus dot-com multimillionaire who cashed out before the stock crashed.

• Claire McCaskill of Missouri, the ninth-richest senator, who failed to pay taxes on her private plane until she was caught last year, and who married her money.

Meanwhile, with few exceptions, Republicans either made money on their own or they don’t have it. It’s no accident Democrats oppose a tax on wealth, of which they have boatloads, but strongly support taxes on income, which they typically do not have.

Democrats don’t hate the rich; they are the rich, luxuriating in fortunes acquired by inheritance or marriage, fleecing the taxpayer, trial lawyer hucksterism or disreputable money manipulation. Their contempt is reserved for those who engage in honest work for a living, whom they accuse of “greed” for wanting to pay the government a little less.

As I have said many times before, I believe the greediest people in this country are Liberals. Period.

So get out your Salt Mine, because here comes another Budget from Dear Leader! Can you take it?

Wait and See Jobs

The American people didn’t send us here to wage symbolic battles or win symbolic victories.  They would much rather have the comfort of knowing that when they open their first paycheck on January of 2011, it won’t be smaller than it was before, all because Washington decided they preferred to have a fight and failed to act.

Make no mistake:  Allowing taxes to go up on all Americans would have raised taxes by $3,000 for a typical American family. And that could cost our economy well over a million jobs.–Obama Dec 6, 2010 from Whitehouse.gov.

So what’s changed in 7 months?

Why is creating jobs so hard for business these days?

Think of it this way. When an employer hires a full-time worker, the employer thinks of the relationship as long term. During an initial training and learning period, the employer probably pays out more in wages and benefits than the company gets back in production. But over a longer period, the hope is to turn that around and make a profit.

When employers hire new employees, then, they are making a gamble. They are betting that over time, the economics of the relationship will pan out.

The problem in the current economy is that hiring new workers and committing to new production has become extremely risky. As the JCA folks explain, an employer who hires workers today has no idea what the company’s future labor costs will be. Or its building and facility costs. Or its cost of capital. Or its taxes.

What’s causing all this uncertainty? You guessed it. Nobody knows what is going to happen in Washington, D.C.

Take the cost of labor. The Affordable Care Act (what some people call ObamaCare) is designed to force employers to provide full-time employees with comprehensive health insurance in less than three years. While the goal may be admirable, the consequences are not. Although no one knows how much this extra burden will cost, estimates are that the required family coverage will reach $15,000 a year or more — the equivalent of an additional $6 an hour minimum wage.

Employers could decide to drop their health insurance altogether; and if they do so they must pay a fine of $2,000 per employee per year. Yet if a lot of employers do this (and apparently a lot of them are thinking about it), don’t you think the federal government will respond by making the fine a lot higher?

Then there is the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB). After the aircraft maker Boeing spent $1 billion building a new plant and hiring 1,000 workers in South Carolina, the agency brought a halt to the whole thing, calling it an unfair labor practice. Boeing’s sin? South Carolina is a right-to-work state. The company should have built the plant in Seattle, where it would be required to use union labor.

There is more bad news. The NLRB is considering rule changes that would make it much easier to unionize workers. Would you like to see employers across the country facing the same kind of turmoil state governments are now facing in dealing with public sector unions? Most employers don’t relish that idea either.

Under the Obama presidency, the NLRB has made a radical change of direction. Some would say it is much more pro-labor, but this is a misnomer. What the agency is dedicated to is not labor, but making labor more costly.

As for capital investments such as new buildings and new equipment, here again there is considerable regulatory uncertainty. It should come as no surprise that the Obama administration is overly friendly to environmental groups who see carbon dioxide emissions as pollution. Yet every act of production emits carbon dioxide. You even emit it when you exhale.

As for the cost of financial capital, what is going to happen is anybody’s guess. When the Bush tax cuts finally do expire, the tax on capital gains will increase by a third and the tax on dividends will more than double. The administration has made no secret that it would like to accelerate these tax increases and make them even higher.

Bottom line: even if there were no Republican opposition in Washington, we would be in trouble. The Obama administration is profoundly anti-labor. It thinks it is pro-labor, of course. But that is because it is so naïve about economics that it doesn’t understand that when you make hiring more costly there will be less hiring.

But there are Republicans in Washington, and (ironically) their presence in some ways adds to uncertainty. While the two parties are battling, who knows what the outcome will be? No one can.

So the best strategy from a business perspective is to sit on cash, delay the employment of labor and capital and wait to see what happens next. (John C. Goodman)

After all, if you’re deemed “rich” or a “fat cat” that is also a politically incorrect one then you’re just waiting for the hammer to fall.

Is the risk worth the reward?

Basic human nature says no.

And with Class Warfare in full bloom and anti-business Democrats on the warpath for Obama’s Re-Coronation why bother.

The Dream

You have a dream to build Widgets.
You don’t have the money. But you start small. Just you.
Long, Long hours. Not making any money.
Owing people lots of money.
But you believe.
You work hard.
People start buying your Widgets.
More and more every year.
You get to the point where you need to hire someone else.
You continue selling. Working many long hours.
Your life is your business. it’s all about your Widgets.
But people Like your Widgets.
People buy more of your widgets.
You need more production space so you expand.
People buy more of your widgets so you hire more people and not just to make your widgets.

You need a receptionist, an accountant, suppliers, and more.
You get big enough to start selling your Widgets outside of your immediate neighborhood.
So you expand. You hire more people.
You even open a 2nd location, then a 3rd and more.
You are successful. It feels good. But it’s very hard work.
You now have hundreds, maybe even thousands of people depending on you and your widgets.
You have retail space that costs money.
You have taxes. You have regulations.
But you’re doing fine.
You continue to grow. You hire more people to help with making and selling even more Widgets.
You and the people you employ are successful.
People really like your Widgets. But now yo’re big enough that the other Widget makers notice you so you have to step up your game to survive — Competition.
But there is enough of a market for your widgets, you work hard, you carve out your place.
You hire more people.

Then the economy goes down. People aren’t buying your widgets as much as they used to. Not because of a bad product, just because they fear for their own survival.
So your buisness starts going down. You have to cut where you can to keep the jobs you have.
You can’t just keep on spending more and taking in less.
To keep the dream you have you have to prune the tree to keep it from dying.

But then the Democrats come along and call you an “evil” “rich” person who exploits people and make money to be greedy.
They demonize you as a greedy “fat cat”.
They want to take even more of your money so that they can give it to their people. But they aren’t “greedy” like you. They just more and more of your money.
They pass regulations that hurt your business.
They are endangering your people. Their jobs.
They don’t care because to them it’s all about “fairness” and their people.
If you don’t cut something you won’t be able to make it.
You have to turn a profit in order to re-invest money into the business. To feed your family.
The socialist Democrats call that being greedy. Too much profit (defined by their own nebulous and ever changing whims on  the winds of fickleness) is evil.
The economy is down.
People aren’t buying your widgets like they used just because they have other things they have to buy first or bill they have to pay first.
You have bills to pay also.
The Democrats continue to demonize you.
The economy continues to go down.
Now regulations and the costs to comply with them are going up.
You can either continue losing money or cut somewhere, possibly jobs.
If you cut jobs and shrink the money tree so that the roots survive you’ll be demonized for that too. If you continue losing money eventually the tree itself will die.
Tough choices.
The people are buying less.
You’re selling less.
But you are demonized for not hiring more people.
But if you hire more people, you will lose even more money because the Government have not only piled more regulations that cost money on you, they have “reformed” the Health Care plan you have been paying FOR your employee generously out of the profits of the business even when it’s slow, and now the costs are even higher.
But they don’t care. You’re just a one-dimensional villian.
And if you hire more people and start to get more successful the Democrats will demonize you  as a greedy “rich” person anyhow and want to take even more of your money.
So if spend more money to hire people the Democrats want to tax and take more.
If you don’t hire more people you’re just a greedy rich person.
People are not buying your widgets like they used to because they can’t afford them like they used to.
But don’t worry, it’s all your fault!!
You had a dream. A dream of making a Widget others would appreciate.
That grew into a business others could thrive from.
Now, all you have is your damned if you do and damned if you don’t.
You continue to struggle to keep the dream alive.
The Democrats just call you greedy and demonize you for being successful at it so you must do it against their constant barage of criticism, taxes, and regulations.
You have other people depending on you.
But you’re just a greedy capitalist.
You aren’t supposed to care.
You’re just supposed to be a miserly scrooge who just wants the buck and nothing else.
The people who are depending on you for their jobs, their bills, their dreams you’re not supposed to care about them because you’re just a heartless capitalist Widget maker.

But you’re supposed to hire more people so the socialists can tax you more and call you a greedy capitalist and take even more tax money. The money that you can’t use to make your business  better and make your employees lives better,or even hire more,so they can give it to their slacker constituents who have been told they are entitled to your money because you “have enough” and it’s “fair”.
And besides they vote for the Democrats to give them more of your money.

And if you protest. Well, they have their apparatchik media as weapon against you.
After all, you’re just a greedy, capitalist Widget Maker.
They are Social Justice.
So what if making things worse is suppose to make them better.

So you guard your resources so that the tree of life that is your dream doesn’t die.
Now, they say you’re “hoarding” your money.
That’s evil.

So if you hire more people you can’t afford they will tax you more so you lose more money.
If you don’t hire more people and protect what you have, you’re a greedy capitalist hoarder.

Maybe it’s time to just chuck the whole dream in the bin!
And forget about all the people who depend on you.
Not just your employees.
Your sales team in the field. The advertisers. The accountants.Your parts suppliers.
The mall owners who rent you space. The warehouse space you pay for.
the Drivers for your trucks.
The shop owners of your locations.
The city & state who tax you.
The Electric company who supplies you power.
The people they employee.
The dreams they have.
The stuggles they have.

Just chuck it all.
Is your Dream worth all this hassle??

If it is, the Democrats will hate you more and want even more of your money to feed the  people who’s only dream is to take your money “for free” and to continue to take more.
They are the drug addicts and prostitutes on the corner that make your neighborhood seedy.

But they are categorically not greedy!

Oh, and you’re a greedy capitalist pig either way.
If you’re successful they want more.
If you’re struggling, they want more.
If you’re failing, they don’t care. They want more.
And if you fail, well you were just too greedy.

But if you fail, it’s not just you. It’s all the other people who lose also.
So is failure a better option than success, hoping that someday success will be rewarded rather than punished??
So is taking your Widgets and going away until the Winter of Liberal discontent is over?
Good Question.
Because, for them it will never be over.
But for you, you have to survive.
For others to thrive you have to survive.
Even if that makes you a greedy capitalist hoarder pig.

Because after all is said and done, The flame of the Dream must not die.
The American Dream.
Take an idea. Make money.
Give People what they want and you can make more dreams come true and enable other people to pursue their own dreams.
Become a Success.
From Nothing to Something.
from Ramen to Success.
Whatever that success is to you.

But if you do, the Liberals will be right their with their drug addicts, pimps, and

prostitutes to take a piece of the action for themselves.

So is it worth it?
Hell yeah!!
But can you survive, that’s a question that has no answer.
We are only a brief candle in history to begin with.
Survival is a day to day struggle.
But a dream keeps hope alive.
But if you’re only dream is to take from others, then that dream is a nightmare.
And the road to hell is paved with good intentions.
So be careful.
Wishes are not always horses, sometimes they are horsemen.
But most of the time Wishes are Dreams and Dreams can come true. But not without lots of hard work, sacrifice, and challenge.
That’s what makes life worth living.
No matter how long or short it is.

But if a successful Widget maker can pass down his legacy to the next generation who can keep it going then you have a dream passed on, not just for the Widget Maker, but for the world and history and generations of people who benefit from that single dream.
And that’s worth fighting for.

And your time starts NOW!

p.s I have a dream. I may not be rich. I may not employee people. I may not make world-famous Widgets. But I have a dream.

So why do Liberals want to ruin it for their own greed?

I think you have your answer.

The Circle of Life continues.

Distrust and Verify

Before my rant, I saw this cartoon and busted out laughing.

Political Cartoon by Michael Ramirez
DAMN STRAIGHT!!
Now on with the show!

Ever feel like your life is the subject of opposition research. Research to to know exactly how much of risk you are. To know everything about you.

No trust. No freedom.

Well, if you don’t. Then read this, and you may. It was in the Wall Street Journal, so not some wacky blog.

Big Banker is watching you—more closely than ever.

With lenders still skittish about making new loans, credit bureaus and others are hawking services that help banks probe deeply into your financial closet. The new offerings include ways to look at your rent and utility payments, figure out your income, gauge your home’s value and even rate your banking habits based on details like whether your direct deposits have stopped.

All of this could influence your financial freedom—not to mention the number of junk-mail solicitations you receive.

Ken Lin, CEO of Credit Karma, a credit-score information website, knew he had a good credit score. But when he recently applied for a new credit card, he was rejected: The lender had flagged him as a higher credit risk because the value of his California home had declined and his mortgage principal wasn’t declining—giving away that he has an interest-only mortgage.

“It’s a lot more than just your credit score today,” he says.

Your credit record still matters, of course. But here are some newer ways lenders and financial-services companies are sizing up your financial behavior and credit-worthiness:

• Bank-depositor behavior scores. Fair Isaac, the creator of the widely used FICO credit score, is marketing bank-depositor behavior scores, which are used by banks to assess their own customers.

The scores are based on balances, deposit records and withdrawal activity, says Debb Gordon, a senior principal consultant at Fair Isaac.

Unlike credit scores—which are most affected after payments are late or credit is maxed out—behavior scores can be a leading indicator of credit risk. They also can help banks identify which of their customers might be ripe for additional services and rewards programs and which might need special attention because, for instance, their direct deposits had stopped.

• Income estimation. This business took off earlier this year after the Federal Reserve allowed lenders to use credit bureaus’ income estimates to satisfy new requirements that credit-card applicants show the ability to pay their debts.

The bureaus use credit-record information, such as the size of your credit lines and the age and size of your mortgage, and plug it into models to predict your earnings. Those estimates also may be used to double-check the income you report on credit applications or to determine if you should be preapproved for credit.

You can’t see those estimates. But if you are denied credit because of them, you must be given a chance to provide additional information.

• Rent payments. An estimated 40 million consumers, including young people and people who prefer to pay in cash, have too little credit experience to generate a useful credit score. But they are likely to pay rent or utility bills, which could help credit bureaus better assess their credit-worthiness.

Experian, one of the three major credit bureaus, bought RentBureau—which collects rental-payment data from large property managers—and expects to integrate that information into credit records before the end of the year.

Even if those consumers don’t want credit, that information could help them win better rates from insurers, which may use insurance scores based on credit records, and fatten up thin credit files, which some employers check before making hiring decisions.

Credit bureaus say they also would like to offer data on cellphone payments, but have run into concerns over privacy issues, which may require legislation to untangle.

• Collection triggers. If you owe money, you can run, but you can’t hide. Credit bureaus can now send daily reports to collection companies when a debtor’s financial status changes—say, if new employment information appears or if a debt starts to decline. A drop in credit use would indicate that the consumer has more capacity to pay and a better chance of repaying other outstanding debts.

• Home values. As home values have plummeted and foreclosures have soared in many states, lenders of all stripes have become more cautious, as Mr. Lin found. Using home values as a factor in credit decisions doesn’t appear to be widespread, but it may come into play when someone in, say, Nevada or California applies for a new loan. Of course, it also could work in your favor if you are one of the roughly 25 million Americans who owns a home outright.

• Your wealth. Information about your assets other than homes and cars, which aren’t part of the credit record, may soon play a bigger role in your financial life. With a better sense of a consumer’s balance sheet, lenders might be able to target potential customers better and also have a fuller sense of their likely risk. Equifax, another of the big three credit bureaus, offers financial-service providers an estimate of liquid wealth as part of a financial “suite” of information.

As all of this becomes a widespread practice, those who are prompt and careful in all aspects of their financial life may have more options—and those who have been sloppy with, say, their bank accounts may be penalized for that.

And mind you, Obama’s Federal Reserve  just gave the banks another stimulus.

I wonder if they’ll track the money you lose due to government policies like massive tax increases, say 1/1/11, Health Care, etc al??

Or the Inflation that even more spending by the Fed will cause?

Too bad no one is watching the government or these “too big to fail” banks like a hawk.

We are the prey.

“Trust Me, I know I’m doing” — Detective Sledgehammer (love that show).

We just don’t trust you, citizen. On anything!

Attack of The Commie Chihuahas

Before I get off on the main rant I found this in the Wall Street Journal and is very indicative of the Progressive Left and Obama and Co. in general.

Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner said he would use weekend meetings of G-20 finance ministers to advance efforts to “rebalance” the world economy so it is less reliant on U.S. consumers, to move toward establishing “norms” on exchange-rate policy, and to persuade others the U.S. doesn’t aim to devalue its way to prosperity.

In an interview with The Wall Street Journal, Mr. Geithner said the world sorely needs to agree on guidelines for exchange-rate policy. “Right now, there is no established sense of what’s fair,” he said.

If you won’t stop depending on the US and it’s consumers for the world economy we’ll force you. After all, we are just a bunch of greedy pigs who deserve to be downgraded because it’s only “fair”.

Devalue it’s way to prosperity?

“The rest of the world wants us to save more—and that means less U.S. demand for the rest of the world. Demand is going have to come from other sources,” Mr. Geithner said.

Gee, I thought that was at the heart of Obamanomics. 🙂

***************************

Democrats battle imaginary racist conspiracies, claim that ghostly foreign financiers oppose them and even smear one Republican with bizarre kidnapping charges. Can’t they just run on their record?

The 111th Congress fulfilled liberal Democrats’ decades-long goal of government-run health care, spent over a trillion dollars on a Keynesian stimulus that promised millions of yet-to-arrive jobs and punished Wall Street for the financial crisis with a massive new regulatory regime.

So shouldn’t running for re-election be simple?

That’s the way many pundits confidently said it would be. Before Newsweek was sold for a dollar — a fraction of the newsstand price for a single issue — its editor was claiming that Barack Obama was a “Burkean” conservative (in the mold of Edmund Burke, the 18th century British parliamentarian and scourge of the French Revolution), in tune for the long term with center-right America.

New York Times Book Review editor Sam Tanenhaus wrote a book on conservatism being dead now that “the Democrats are in charge and, in Obama, have a leader of rare political skills.”

Now, seemingly overnight, Democrats may lose their majority in the House, and in the Senate their majority leader maybe unseated.

So they’ve decided on the Hail Mary pass. Since they think Republicans are nut jobs, maybe they can convince voters of it.

Those thousands of Tea Partyers, including many women? They can’t be a true populist uprising. So the NAACP, a stalwart ally of liberal Democrats, unveils an October Surprise: a report charging that the Tea Party is chock full of “anti-Semites, racists and bigots.”

This week, House Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Henry Waxman reiterated the White House’s charge — backed by zero evidence — that the U.S. Chamber of Commerce financed ads against liberal Democrats with cash from foreign corporations.

Congress invites a comedian like Stephen Colbert to testify; the president plans to tarnish his high office by appearing on Comedy Central. With no winning issues to run on, Democrats seem to have embraced the politics of the absurd. (IBD)

The report released by the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (Colored people? Isn’t that a racial slur? :)) argues that Tea Party groups “have given platform to anti-Semites, racists and bigots,” and have attracted white nationalists looking for recruits.

“The Tea Party movement has unleashed a still inchoate political movement who are in their numerical majority, angry middle-class white people who believe their country, their nation, has been taken from them,” it says. (WSJ)

I have new name for the NAACP. The National Association of The American Communist Party. They sure aren’t into civil rights anymore.

They are just a partisan attack dog for the Far left Progressives in the Democratic Party. And that’s it.

So you get these little yappy attack dogs who just bark and yip about “racism” and “bigotry” the moment you disagree with them or their God.

I think I preferred “Yo quiero Taco Bell”.  But even that chihuahua was fired for not selling enough Tacos.

Can we fire the NAACP for not even giving a crap about civil rights, or even civility?

But the report also points to signs at Tea Party rallies with explicitly racist or racially charged language. It notes that several black congressmen accused Tea Party supporters of shouting racial epithets at them during a rally against health care legislation on Capitol Hill in March. Mr. Jealous called on Tea Party leaders to repudiate this kind of racism, as well as ties to white supremacist groups and “birthers” within the ranks of the movement.

This was a very long time ago in politics. There was a $100,000 reward for anyone who had documented proof that this incident ever even happened. No one ever came forward. No evidence was ever presented.

Like the Far left needs evidence and facts to back up their childish over-the-top hysterical claims. Like they care.

The end justifies the means.

Morals and ethics are irrelevant.

More from the NAACP:

“We have to have particular concern about supremacy attitudes, violence, hate language, particularly when it’s rooted in notions of restoring or taking back or redeeming the country,” Barber said. “Because, in the American social-historical-political psyche, we have historical markers that tell us how dangerous this is to be given legitimacy.”

For instance:

“We know in 1867 when the Ku Klux Klan, for instance, laid out its political purposes, it was about restoring and re-enfranchising, if you will.”

“And then when you go to the Reconstruction Era, you find this same attempt to spew this division, this hate language out…. ‘We need to restore America. We need to take it back.'”

Barber moved on to 1963. “When George Wallace used this language and themes of division, very vitriolic hate language,” Barber said, “Medgar Evers was killed in June of that year… We had the bombing of a church, four girls were killed at Sunday school and then we had a president assassinated.” (Washington Post)

This would be the President that if he tried to run today as a Democrat he’d be run out of the party so fast the earth’s rotation would reverse, right? 🙂

And of course, the logic errors and over generalizations and hysterical partisan Alinsky tactics in all this are very apparent but since the end justifies the means what does it matter to them.

As long as you’re stupid enough to be influenced to either stay home and not vote them out or to vote FOR them what do they care.

They are earnestly concerned that anyone who disagrees with their Messiah must be an unbeliever and must be exposed as a witch and burnt at the stake.

Sorry, that’s Christine O’Donnell. :0

You Heathens!

‘It is evil when anyone person feels like their child is better than any other child and it’s evil when they take the money that all of have suffered to put into this community and use it for their benefit as opposed to all of our benefit,” said Rev.

Mind you he was talking about the School district there’s plans to close some schools (naturally only “white” schools should be closed).  But I can only wish he felt the same way about the organization itself.

“Part of the reason that our politics seems so tough right now, and facts and science and argument do not seem to be winning the day all the time, is because we’re hard-wired not to always think clearly when we’re scared,” Obama told Democratic donors at a fundraiser in Massachusetts last week. “And the country is scared.”–President Obama.

Democrats appear united in warning voters against the dangers of making ballot-box choices rashly because of their discontent with the status quo.(MSNBC)

Now that they are the “status quo” and not Bush/Cheney/Rove. Remember all that anger at Bush that still exists today?

So all you “scared” “angry” “racists” out there vote on November 2 and vote bums out!

“I’m Mad as hell and I’m not going to take it anymore!” 🙂
