Relative Morality

This week bored teens shot and killed a jogger for the thrill of it. A teen purposely shot a 13-month old baby in the face during a robbery.

In 2000, teens kidnapped, tortured and murdered an 85 year old woman. They rode her dead body around in the trunk, showing it off to at least 10 friends. Not one friend reported the murder.

In 1997 a teen gave birth in the restroom at her senior prom; cut the umbilical chord, choked her baby to death, put him in a plastic bag which she threw away and returned to dancing the night away.

I could go on and on with countless examples of youths displaying a callous disregard for human life and the moral decay eating away at the soul of America.

In an on going discussion with colleagues, we ponder. What marked the genesis of it going so horribly wrong in America?

My wife Mary believes it began with liberals being allowed to infiltrate our public schools. Their philosophy is, in a nutshell, God out and government in. Liberals introduced the concept of moral relativity. In other words, nothing is absolutely right or wrong.

Personal accountability is for the most part unheard of in our liberal government and liberal media-dominated America. Consequently, disability, food stamp, and welfare fraud are through the roof.

A colleague suggested that the root of our decline is parents dropping the ball and surrendering responsibility for their kids to the schools – free breakfast and lunch, not vetting the curriculum, and so forth.

Rush Limbaugh believes our youth’s callous disregard for life stems from abortions on demand (4,000 per day) and Dr. Jack Kevorkian promoting assisted suicide. In essence, the devaluation of life.

I was devastated after watching the Fox News special report, The Great Food Stamp Binge. The program exposed how the Obama Administration is actively attempting to change the mindset of Americans, telling them self-reliance is bad and government dependency is moral and just.

Another thing that I find depressing is that the Obama administration believes enforcing our laws should not be applied equally. They claim defending our borders and enforcing immigration law is racist because the offenders are mostly people of color. And who can forget when Attorney General Eric Holder refused to prosecute New Black Panthers members for intimidating voters at the polls?

Beyond the obvious negative political and economic consequences of our cultural and moral decline, what breaks my heart is the loss of what it means to be an American.

I have written about my dad on numerous occasions, but for those of you who are unfamiliar, my dad epitomizes what it used to mean to be an American.

Born out-of-wedlock, dad was raised in the ghetto of east Baltimore by his aunt, and has been an entrepreneur since age 10. He shined shoes on the weekends at the Greyhound bus station. On a good weekend dad earned $1.25. Dad bragged to his buddies that he was a man because he purchased his own clothes — a t-shirt — and paid room and board — 25 cents to Aunt Nee. Now in his 80′s, I still feel dad’s pride when he talks about his first job.

Dad served in the Merchant Marines. He still bears deep emotional scars from an incident when whites in the South tried to hang dad for simply getting off the ship. White shipmates saved dad’s life.

Dad married and had five kids, while breaking the color barrier in the Baltimore City Fire Department in the mid 1950s. Dad could not use the same eating utensils or drink from the same coffee pot as the white firefighters. Despite deplorable, humiliating and unfair conditions, dad won Firefighter of the Year twice. Not once did dad expect or request special concessions or lower his standards due to his skin color.

As a young minister, dad strove to be excellent; a good representative for Christ and Negroes.

After two years, a new white firefighter arrived at Engine 6. Dad said the new guy came upstairs and invited dad to have coffee with the crew.

Dad’s oxygen mask malfunctioned causing him to pass out in a burning building. The chief ordered his crew out of the inferno. Upon realizing that dad had not exited the building, John, who was the most racist of the crew, went back into the smoke filled burning building. He found dad and saved his life. The two became lifelong friends.

Dad became Baltimore’s first black paramedic. He was also a chaplain in the Baltimore Fire Dept for 50 years. He earned a doctorate in theology and has authored books.

I feel incredibly blessed that I still get occasional phone calls from my 85 year old dad who calls to tell me his latest corny joke, or one he forgot he told me. I laugh regardless. His wife, my mother, passed away almost 20 years ago.

Dad is all about trying to do the right thing and striving for excellence, not expecting anyone to give you anything. Pastor of four churches, dad still stays busy visiting the sick and the shut-ins.

So, when I see Obama and the mainstream media constantly lowering the bar, expecting less and less of Americans in every area of our lives, morally, educationally, economically and etc, I mourn the loss of what it use to mean to be an American.

If Obama and the mainstream media’s vision for America is realized, there will be far fewer great American success stories like my dad’s. Most Americans will be on food stamps, abortions and murder rates will continue to skyrocket, and mediocrity will be distributed equally. (DC)
But at least it will be “fair” and “equal” for everyone. You can’t get more than that from a Liberal.

All hell all the time.

Oh, and it’s the Republicans/Conservatives Fault! 🙂

“I actually think that a lot of people have lost their ability to laugh. Look at the country as a whole. There’s a lot more to be mad at than a rodeo clown at a rodeo trying to make somebody laugh.”– Tuffy Gessling, the Missouri rodeo clown who wore a President Obama mask at the state fair,now gets death threats from the “kind” “compassionate” and “sensitive” Liberals.

Though shalt not make fun of their God, Government, nor his emissary, B.O.

After all, Government always makes everything “fair” 🙂

Giving People What they Ask For…

In the middle of massive tragedy in Connecticut where another little cherub of joy has killed people what I want to focus on is from the truly horrible to the truly silly  bureaucracy that Liberals (and the American People by their vote) are so fond of. So fond of it in fact that you want even more of it, and you want it for your Health Care Overlord. Congrats.

So I give you, the TSA. Bureaucratic Brainless Monkeys in Uniform. Keeping you safe. Maybe we should have them in schools. 🙂

A 12-year-old girl who suffers from a bone disorder and uses a wheelchair was detained for nearly an hour at DFW International Airport after TSA agents said they found explosive residue on her hands.

Shelbi Walser was traveling to Florida for medical treatment with her mother when the incident occurred last weekend.

Her mother, Tammy Daniels, says that TSA agents pulled her to the side after a test revealed explosives residue on the girls hands. However, Daniels believes that TSA agents never used common sense during the ordeal.

At one point, agents called a supervisor in to deal with Daniels, who is very angry about the way she was treated.

“Never once did I lose my composure with them,” said Daniels. “I never screamed at them – nothing. And the lady had the audacity to call who she called and tell them I was being hostile, which I find funny.”

Shelbi and her mother were released after a bomb expert showed up and found nothing hazardous.

“I understand other people’s concerns that they are just providing a safety for everyone who flies – I understand that,” said Daniels. “But that was not the case here.”

They NEEDED A BOMB EXPERT to tell them the wheelchair wasn’t going to explode! ARE YOU SERIOUS!

I bet this wouldn’t have happen if she was wearing a Burka or looked Muslim… 🙂

So how long before we find out some bureaucrat mental health person screwed the pooch on our little Connecticut Cherub, Hmmm??

“We are sensitive to the concerns of passengers who were not satisfied with their screening experience and we invite those individuals to provide feedback to TSA through a variety of channels.  We work to balance those concerns with the very real threat that our adversaries will attempt to use explosives to carry out attacks on planes.”

This has been a recording if you’d like to leave a message Press 1 now…

Oh then there was little ditty:

According to the Public Religion Research Institute poll, released Wednesday, 55 percent of respondents who identified themselves as many members supported allowing people to carry guns to church. This contrasted with 38 percent of Republicans, 17 percent of independents, and 9 percent of Democrats.

So all Tea Partiers are gun toting whackos…. 🙂

So has the our Connecticut cutie been ID’d as a Tea Partier yet?

Townhall: Parents today are neglecting their children, and when things don’t go well, rushing to get divorced instead of trying to work things out first. Children suffer emotionally when their parents fight or split up. Parents are ignoring their children so much they don’t even see the warning signs that something might be wrong. The New York Times study found that 63 of 100 rampage killers had made threats of violence before the event.

Parents are no longer taking their children to church, where they would learn stability and morals. Fewer than 20% of Americans now regularly attend church. Every year there are 3000 fewer churches across the U.S, even though the population is growing. God and morality have been taken out of the public schools and replaced with political correctness and non-judgmentalism. “Public virtues” are no longer taught in today’s schools. People who do not attend church are more likely than churchgoers to have stress and to be less optimistic about the future. When parents split up and there is no father to take the children regularly to church, the children are much less likely to become regular churchgoers than if their mother regularly takes them.

The New York Times study found that at least half the killers in 100 rampage attacks showed signs of serious mental health problems. 48 killers were formally diagnosed with mental illness, often schizophrenia. The mentally ill used to be kept in hospitals, where they were not a danger to others. Beginning in the 1950s in California, the ACLU successfully filed lawsuits to take the mentally ill out of hospitals, known as “deinstitutionalization.” By the 1980s, most state-run mental health hospitals had closed.

Now, most of the mentally ill are out on the streets or in prison. The laws have been changed to state that the mentally ill cannot be hospitalized until they’ve already attacked someone. As a result, more mentally ill people are incarcerated than in hospitals, with the seriously mentally ill three times more likely to end up behind bars than hospitalized. More than half of all people in prison report that they have mental health problems, and more than 40 percent of the seriously mentally ill have been in jail or prison. A study at the University of South Florida found that the highest users of criminal justice and mental health services were 97 people who had been arrested 2,200 times. It is ludicrous that those 97 people are not contained for their safety and others in mental health hospitals.

The 22-year old Oregon shopping mall gunman who killed two people earlier this week is sadly typical of the rampage murderers the decay of society has spawned. He had this written on his Facebook page, “I’m the conductor of my choo choo train. I may be young but I have lived one crazy life so far.” One of his friends said he raised himself; his mother died at childbirth, he never met his father, and he left his aunt’s home at age 14.

The left will use the high level of emotion stirred up by this past week’s two rampage killings to push through new gun control laws. Liberal New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg called upon President Obama to enact tougher gun control laws immediately after Friday’s mass shooting at an elementary school in Connecticut. Yet demanding more gun control laws will not solve anything. Gun control advocates have already increased the number of laws around the country requiring background checks, waiting periods for purchases, and tracking of firearms. Many of the rampage killers obtained guns illegally. If they can’t obtain guns, deranged individuals will find other ways to commit mass murders – by setting fires, making bombs or running people over with vehicles. One day after the shootings in Connecticut, a man in Beijing stabbed 22 primary school students with a knife.

The left should not be allowed to dominate the dialogue after these tragic events with a red herring argument for gun control, in order to sneakily distract Americans from blaming them for what they have wrought. Americans who believe in traditional values must speak up and denounce the degradation of society’s morals as the root of the problem behind these rampages, or the tragedies will continue to escalate.

But never let a crisis go to waste… 🙂

The Vain Hope of Change

“Reality exists in the human mind, and nowhere else. Not in the individual mind, which can make mistakes, and in any case soon perishes: only in the mind of the Party, which is collective and immortal.”
― George Orwell, 1984

Thomas Sowell: It bothers me a little when conservatives call Barack Obama a “socialist.” He certainly is an enemy of the free market, and wants politicians and bureaucrats to make the fundamental decisions about the economy. But that does not mean that he wants government ownership of the means of production, which has long been a standard definition of socialism.

What President Obama has been pushing for, and moving toward, is more insidious: government control of the economy, while leaving ownership in private hands. That way, politicians get to call the shots, but, when their bright ideas lead to disaster, they can always blame those who own businesses in the private sector.

Politically, it is heads-I-win when things go right, and tails-you-lose when things go wrong. This is far preferable, from Obama’s point of view, since it gives him a variety of scapegoats for all his failed policies, so that he no longer has to use President Bush as a scapegoat all the time.

But he still has him to use as the catch-all for everything anyhow. And it, after all, all about HIM. You little people only matter if you are going to a) give him money or b) vote for him regardless of anything he says or does.

Government ownership of the means of production means that politicians also own the consequences of their policies, and have to face responsibility when those consequences are disastrous — something that Barack Obama avoids like the plague.

Thus the Obama administration can arbitrarily force insurance companies to cover the children of their customers until the children are 26 years old. Obviously, this creates favorable publicity for President Obama. But if this and other government edicts cause insurance premiums to rise, then that is something that can be blamed on the “greed” of the insurance companies.

And his surrogates in the Liberal Media also writes do pieces to back him up.

The same principle, or lack of principle, applies to many other privately owned businesses. It is a very successful political ploy that can be adapted to all sorts of situations.

One of the reasons why both pro-Obama and anti-Obama observers may be reluctant to see him as fascist is that both tend to accept the prevailing notion that fascism is on the political right, while it is obvious that Obama is on the political left.

And thus they also ignore his very Orwellian moves, words, and actions.

Doublethink: The power of holding two contradictory beliefs in one’s mind simultaneously, and accepting both of them… To tell deliberate lies while genuinely believing in them, to forget any fact that has become inconvenient, and then, when it becomes necessary again, to draw it back from oblivion for just as long as it is needed, to deny the existence of objective reality and all the while to take account of the reality which one denies – all this is indispensably necessary. Even in using the word doublethink it is necessary to exercise doublethink. For by using the word one admits that one is tampering with reality; by a fresh act of doublethink one erases this knowledge; and so on indefinitely, with the lie always one leap ahead of the truth.

To know and not to know, to be conscious of complete truthfulness while telling carefully constructed lies, to hold simultaneously two opinions which cancelled out, knowing them to be contradictory and believing in both of them, to use logic against logic, to repudiate morality while laying claim to it, to believe that democracy was impossible and that the Party was the guardian of democracy, to forget, whatever it was necessary to forget, then to draw it back into memory again at the moment when it was needed, and then promptly to forget it again, and above all, to apply the same process to the process itself – that was the ultimate subtlety; consciously to induce unconsciousness, and then, once again, to become unconscious of the act of hypnosis you had just performed. Even to understand the word ‘doublethink’ involved the use of doublethink.

-George Orwell

Back in the 1920s, however, when fascism was a new political development, it was widely — and correctly — regarded as being on the political left. Jonah Goldberg’s great book Liberal Fascism cites overwhelming evidence of the fascists’ consistent pursuit of the goals of the Left, and of the Left’s embrace of the fascists during the 1920s.

Mussolini, the originator of fascism, was lionized by the Left, both in Europe and in America, during the 1920s. Even Hitler, who adopted fascist ideas in the 1920s, was seen by some, including W. E. B. Du Bois, as a man of the Left.

It was in the 1930s, when ugly internal and international actions by Hitler and Mussolini repelled the world, that the Left distanced itself from fascism and its Nazi offshoot — and verbally transferred these totalitarian dictatorships to the Right, saddling their opponents with these pariahs.

What socialism, fascism, and other ideologies of the Left have in common is an assumption that some very wise people — like themselves — need to take decisions out of the hands of lesser people, i.e., the rest of us, and impose those decisions by government fiat.

Like the immigration fiat just handed down and high handed and high minded way they think of themselves for doing it.

‘This is Not Amnesty’: Pres. Obama Defends New Immigration Policy in White House Speech

Yes, it is. It’s nothing but, but he has to play his games with words and let his minions pound you with them and your “racism” because you disagree with The First Black President!

President Barack Obama says his plan to stop deporting younger illegal immigrants who came to the U.S. as children will make the system ‘more fair, more efficient and more just.’ (The Blaze)

The vision of those of the Left is not only a vision of the world, but also a vision of themselves as superior beings pursuing superior ends. In the United States, however, this vision conflicts with a Constitution that begins, “We, the People . . . ”

That is why the Left has for more than a century been trying to get the Constitution’s limitations on government loosened or evaded by judges’ new interpretations, based on notions of “a living Constitution” that will take decisions out of the hands of “We, the People,” and transfer those decisions to our betters.

The self-flattery of the vision of the Left also gives its true believers a huge ego stake in that vision, which means that mere facts are unlikely to make them reconsider — regardless of what evidence piles up against the vision of the Left, and regardless of its disastrous consequences.

Only our own awareness of the huge stakes involved can save us from the rampaging presumptions of our betters, whether they are called socialists or fascists. So long as we buy their heady rhetoric, we are selling our birthright of freedom. (NRO)

AMEN.

The U.S. has never before had a President who thinks so little of the American people that he imagines he can win re-election running on the opposite of reality. But that is the reality of President Obama today.

Waving a planted press commentary, Obama recently claimed on the campaign stump, “federal spending since I took office has risen at the slowest pace of any President in almost 60 years.”

Peggy Noonan: “There is, now, a house-of-cards feel about this administration.  It became apparent some weeks ago when the President talked on the stump – where else? – about an essay by a fellow who said spending growth [under Obama] is actually lower than that of previous Presidents.  This was startling to a lot of people, who looked into it and found the man had left out most spending from 2009, the first year of Mr. Obama’s Presidency.  People sneered: The President was deliberately using a misleading argument to paint a false picture!  But you know, why would he go out there waiving an article that could immediately be debunked?  Maybe because he thought it was true.  That’s more alarming, isn’t it, the idea that he knows so little about the effects of his own economic program that he thinks he really is a low spender.”

Or more like someone who is so Orwellian that he wants you to believe a complete falsehood as the truth. And many liberals do buy into it because this an ideological falsehood not a factual falsehood. As Mr. Sowell pointed out and I have pointed out on many occasions Liberals do not response favorable to ACTUAL facts.

What this shows most importantly is that the recognition is starting to break through to the general public regarding the President’s rhetorical strategy that I’ve have been calling Calculated Deception.  The latter is deliberately using a misleading argument to paint a false picture.  That has been a central Obama practice not only throughout his entire presidency, but also as the foundation of his 2008 campaign strategy, and actually throughout his whole career.

Rest assured, Ms. Noonan, that the President is not as nuts as he may seem at times.  He knows very well that he is not a careful spender.  His whole mission is to transform the U.S. not into a Big Government country, but a Huge Government country, because only a country run by a Huge Government can be satisfactorily controlled by superior, all wise and beneficent individuals like himself. 

The analysis by Internet commentator Rex Nutting on which Obama based his claim begins by telling us “What people forget (or never knew) is that the first year of every presidential term starts with a budget approved by the previous administration and Congress.”  Not exactly.

The previous administration, or President, proposes a budget.  The previous Congress approves a budget.  And what Congress approves can be radically different from what the President proposes. (Forbes)

The Democrat controlled Congress passed the budget in 2008 for 2009 and has refused to pass another budget since 2009. The Republicans pass one and the Democrats ignore it, or demonize it or both.

That’s is called “obstructionist” by the Liberals. Because you are obstructing their attempts to take over every facet of your life! And that’s the Republican’s Fault! The Teap Party’s Fault! ,The “rich”!, “The right wing”,”Greedy” Corporate America’s Fault!

The President has put a budget for the last two years that was mere showpiece and it has been shot down twice in a row with zero votes for it because it wasn’t a serious proposal and was never designed to be one. But  you have to keep up the facade of it’s the Republicans fault for not passing the President’s budget that is the problem, not that the Democrats not passing the Republican’s (or even negotiating) is the problem.

It’s all in how they want you to look at it.

Reality is just a game. A political game. A game to be played to win.

“Reality exists in the human mind, and nowhere else. Not in the individual mind, which can make mistakes, and in any case soon perishes: only in the mind of the Party, which is collective and immortal.”

What was Old Is New Again

Three years ago, President Obama cut a secret deal with pharmaceutical company lobbyists to secure the industry’s support for his national health care law. Despite Obama’s promises during his campaign to run a transparent administration, the deal has been shrouded in mystery ever since. But internal emails obtained by House Republicans now provide evidence that a deal was struck and GOP investigators are promising to release more details in the coming weeks.

“What the hell?” White House Deputy Chief of Staff Jim Messina, who is now Obama’s campaign manager, complained to a lobbyist for the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America (PhRMA) in January 15, 2010 email. “This wasn’t part of our deal.”

This reference to “our deal” came two months before the final passage of Obamacare

The email was uncovered as part of investigation into Obama’s closed-door health care negotiations launched by the House Energy and Commerce committee’s oversight panel. (KFYI)

I certainly hope they do.

You are your brother’s keeper and WE are yours. Enjoy.

And from the “It Takes a Village”:

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, told an assemblage of human rights and “civil society” activists gathered at the State Department Wednesday that “government cannot and should not” control the lives of individuals.

And she said it with a straight face!

DEBT

Under President Barack Obama, the federal debt has been increasing at a rate of $1,148 per month per American household.

Now that’s Hope and CHANGE. 🙂

The White House and the congressional leaders of both parties in Congress have begun maneuvering this week over the issue of the federal debt and what to do when the government hits the latest statutory limit on that debt–$16.394 trillion—which Congress and the president agreed to when they cut a deal on the debt limit last August.

When the Republicans caved in to the Democrats. And the Republicans are posturing like they did previously so they can cave in end when the Democrats and the Liberal media assault them and they go all weak in the knees and cave in.

The federal debt is currently $15.709 trillion, or about $685 billion below the limit.

The first spending deal the White House and leaders of both parties in Congress made last year was on March 2. On that day, the president signed a continuing resolution to keep the government funded past March 4, when the previous continuing resolution, passed by a lame-duck Congress in late 2010, expired.

The March 4 CR kept the government funded for two weeks and was approved by a bipartisan 335-91 vote in the House and a bipartisan 91-9 vote in the Senate.

Since that March 4, 2011 bipartisan continuing resolution, the federal government has been funded by a series of bipartisan deals cut between the White House and congressional leaders.

In the meanwhile, under these bipartisan spending deals, according to official figures published by the U.S. Treasury, the federal debt has climbed from $14,182,627,184,881.03 to $15,708,753,671,767.64.

That is an increase of $1,526,126,486,886.61.

Given that the Census Bureau estimates there are about 117,538,000 households in the United States, the per household increase in the federal debt since Congress enacted its March 4, 2011 bipartisan spending deal has been approximately $12,984. (CNS)

The drug addicts are still getting their fix and come January, MASSIVE Tax increases because the Bush Tax cuts expire, the payroll tax breaks expire and the Debt Ceiling is reached.

Gee, I wonder if that timing was deliberate? 🙂

But don’t worry, if Romney wins, it will be the Republicans Fault. If Obama Wins, it will be Bush’s Fault! 🙂

VP Biden just days ago: When you’re out of work, man, it’s a depression. And a lot of people are still hurting because of this god-awful recession we inherited that cost 8.4 million jobs before we could really get going. And so I don’t blame people, they’re frustrated, they’re angry…

OBAMACARE

“In his talk to Protestant ministers,” Sebelius said, “Kennedy talked about his vision of religion and the public square, and he said he believed in an America, and I quote, ‘where no religious body seeks to impose its will directly or indirectly upon the general populace or the public acts of its officials; and where religious liberty is so indivisible that an act against one church is treated as an act against us all.’”

But the Government can force you and religious institutions to act against their general will because the government is all-powerful and besides you don’t want to elect a cultist Mormon now do you???

Irony is always lost on Liberals.

Sebelius told the students that to engage in debates, such as ones dealing with religion and public policy, will require them to follow their “own moral compass.”

But her own Catholic compass was broken by her ego to be the Minister of Health to all the unwashed, uneducated, and untamed masses.

And if this “compass” conflicts with Government you lose every time they want you to believe it doesn’t, so go ahead, have your “moral compass” then do what the government demands of you, serf, or else the IRS will be coming to your door and you will have to pay a fine to your Lords and Masters!

“It will also require the ethical skills you have honed–the ability to weigh different views, to see issues from others points of view, and in the end, to be true to your own moral compass.”

I’m just blathering platitudes  I don’t mean but “feel” good to say now because I’m and the Supreme Overlord of Health Care and you will do as I say regardless.

It kind of reminds you of Obama and his speeches about unity, and civility that were a total joke and he knew it. But it sounded good.

“The conversations can be painful, But it’s through this process of conversation and compromise that we actually move forward, together, step by step, towards that ‘more perfect union.’”

That’s why we rammed it down your thought in the most partisan bitch fight in US history!!

Liberal concept of Compromise: You give in, we don’t, we win. 🙂

BUDGET

Oh, and Obama’s much heralded budget when down in flames yet again because it wasn’t a serious attempt anyhow it was just a show piece and a fraud so voting it down is just a game to be played while the Democrats ignore the Budget.

1,127 days without a Federal Budget!

The White House dismissed the vote entirely as a gimmick.

Ah, the good old days are here again. 🙂

Mississippi Burning America

Apparently, some Liberals are unrepentant. Apparently, all the Spike Lee mess just wasn’t enough.

The comedian Roseanne Barr last night tweeted the home address of George Zimmerman’s parents to her 110,000-plus Twitter followers, only to delete the posting after “not fully understanding that it was private not public.”

Barr, who deleted her tweet in the face of criticism from some Twitter followers, noted that she first thought it “was good to let ppl know that no one can hide anymore.”  That stance quickly changed, with Barr reporting, “But vigilante-ism is what killed Trayvon. I don’t support that.”

I would laugh, but it’s not funny that some Liberals are this casual about such things as privacy,race hussling and “moral outrage” vigilantism.

“If Zimmerman isn’t arrested I’ll rt his address again.” She added, “maybe go 2 his house myself.”

Cross a Liberal and they tweet you to death!! 🙂 Be Afraid, Be Very Afraid…of them!

So with that…

UK Telegraph: Parents of murdered British students criticise Barack Obama

The parents of two British students murdered in Florida have criticised President Barack Obama for his lack of compassion over their sons’ deaths.

His failure to respond to three letters sent to the White House was because there was no “political value” and not worthy of a few minutes of his time.

They spoke out as teenager Shawn Tyson (he was black) began a life sentence after being found guilty of the murder of James Cooper and James Kouzaris last April.

The 17 year old, who shot the men as they begged for their lives, will die in prison.

His conviction of first degree murder carries an mandatory life sentence without the chance of parole.

The powerfully built teen even looked bored as emotional DVD presentations about the dead men prepared by their grieving parents were shown in court.

Tyson, who has the word ‘Savage’ tattooed across his chest didn’t show a flicker of emotion, slumping in his seat as he was forced to watch a montage of photos showing the victims from early childhood to young men.

Two close friends of the dead men who had attended the eight day trial in Sarasota, Florida. had also delivered highly emotional impact statements to the court prior to the sentencing.

Paul Davies and Joe Hallett spoke of the “living hell” they and others who knew the men had suffered since the murders.

During the eight day trial they had been shown graphic crime scene and autopsy photos shown in court.

Later speaking after Tyson was jailed Davies and Hallett lashed out at Mr Obama saying the deaths of their friends was “not worthy of ten minutes of his time.”

Davies said:”We would like to publicly express our dissatisfaction at the lack of any public or private message of support or condolence from any American governing body or indeed, President Obama himself.

“Mr Kouzaris has written to President Obama on three separate occasions and is yet to even receive the courtesy of a reply.

“It would perhaps appear that Mr Obama sees no political value in facilitating such a request or that the lives of two British tourists are not worthy of ten minutes of his time.”

The rebuke follows Mr Obama’s personal intervention into the shooting in Florida of a young black teenager by a white-Hispanic neighbourhood watch captain.

The death of 17 year old Trayvon Martin has sparked nationwide protests with his supporters claiming he was victim of a racist attack.

Mr Obama entered the controversy last week by saying if he had a son he would have looked like Martin.

The alleged assailant in Martin’s death has not been charged with any crime having claimed he was attacked first and used Florida’s ‘stand your ground’ law to shoot in self defence.

The criticism of the US President was made on behalf of the Cooper’s parents Stanley and Sandy, from Warwicks, and Peter and Hazel Kouzaris, from Northampton by Davies in a statement read outside the courtroom.

The parents of the two victims did not attend the trial but they had access to the proceedings from a live video feed.

The filmed interview of the Kouzaris’s was played to the court while a message from Sandy Cooper was read out by the prosecutor.

The victims close friends delivered an emotional impact statement with Hallett telling Tyson he hoped he would be haunted by his actions.

He told him: “Imagine them being killed. Now try to imagine that they died because someone creept up on them and shot them numerous times for no good reason. Welcome to our world. Every night you go to sleep, every morning you wake up, I want you to think of my friends who you murdered. Their images will be imprinted on your conscience up until your very last breath in life.”

Remember, when you have no standards (as Liberals don’t) you don’t have to worry about hypocrisy or even common decency because it’s all about the short term political gain, not the truth.

And you can’t be held to account for something you have no morals or ethics about in the first place.

Trayvon Martin, whether victim or Perp doesn’t matter. The race hussling and racial division does.

People are just useful tools. That’s all they are.

The Post-Partisan, Post-Racial “uniter” President everyone! 🙂

Yeah right…

A “white” man was “stalking” a little black kid — who could be Obama’s son! — confronted him, beat him senseless as the small black child screamed for help, and finally shot the kid dead, “just because he was black.” (Ann Coulter)

Oh, and then there’s this: AFL-CIO Executive Vice President Arlene Holt Baker told The Daily Caller that it is “conservative, right-wing policies that are to blame” for Trayvon Martin‘s death.

OF COURSE IT HAS TO BE THE RIGHT WING/CONSERVATIVE’S FAULT!!!
Everything in the Universe is, according to Liberals. so it was only a matter of time.
“The same folks who want to kill workers’ rights in the work place are the same folks who want to kill voters’ votes (Black Panther Case excluded :)) … and now they are literally supporting legislation that is literally killing our children.”
“When you look at whose behind it, you find that the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC), a very conservative think tank comprised of corporations and very conservative representatives at the state level are behind this.”
George Zimmerman, the “white” Hispanic was a Manchurian robot pawn for ALEC!!! Wow! what a revelation!!! Who Knew!
This is big News!
Call Rachael Maddow! 🙂

Rules to Live By

Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals”:

Rule 4: Make opponents live up to their own book of rules. “You can kill them with this, for they can no more obey their own rules than the Christian church can live up to Christianity.”

But if you have no standards, like Liberals, then you have no rules, morals or ethics to uphold. You are not bound by any conventions. You cannot be held responsible for your actions in your mind. You cannot be a hypocrite if you have no standards to compare to.

So you can call women c*nts,bitches,sluts,whores, prostitutes,bimbos, et al and no one on “your side” will give a crap.

So what if Bill Maher (who has said all of these) gives Obama a Million Dollars for his re-election campaign that’s ok.

One Radio Talk Show you despise slips and uses just 1 of those words just in the context of contraception and suddenly all women are under attack and when people call you on it, you blow them off.

What matters is ideology. Not standards. Morals. Or Ethics. Ideology is king.

And you being “right” 100% of the time, every time because you’re so superior to the heathens is all important.

A perfect example of no standards to live up to is David Axelrod, a very smart guy. After all, he got a radical leftist nutjob elected president on “hope and change” and “yes we can” BS. So he’s not a dumb guy.

But when asked about the whole Rush Limbaugh/Bill Maher comparison he becomes nearly incoherent and babbles like a nervous first time public speaker in front of a crowd because he has no choice but to defend the completely indefensible hypocritical stance and make it sound like it’s no big deal.

<Axelrod> described that as different than Rush Limbaugh calling law student Sandra Fluke a “slut.”

Axelrod made the comments in an interview on “Erin Burnett OutFront” on CNN, saying, “There’s been a coarsening of our political culture. I don’t think that language is appropriate, no matter who uses it. And I think — whoever you are — in politics, you ought to be willing to say so. I was disappointed that Gov. Romney didn’t stand up more forcefully when Rush Limbaugh said what he said.”

He added, “But understand that these words that Maher has used in his stand-up act are a little bit different than — not excusable in any way — but different than a guy with 23 million radio listeners using his broadcast platform to malign a young woman for speaking her mind in the most — in the most inappropriate grotesque ways. And and nor does Bill Maher play the role in the … Democratic Party that Rush Limbaugh plays in the Republican Party, where he’s really the de facto boss of the party. Everybody responds to him. Which is the reason why I think Gov. Romney was afraid to take him on. “
                               
“I do not excuse those kinds of characterizations of women,” he went on. “I don’t think those kind of gratuitous nasty words about anyone is appropriate in the public sphere. I — I’m not excusing anyone.  (I will anyways)  But I think what what Limbaugh did was — was particularly egregious. And it wasn’t just once. It was … he built on it and built on it to the point where — he built into a sort of perverse soliloquy at the end about, you know, whether she post[s] her — her relationships online.”

The pro-President Obama super PAC Priorities USA Action has gotten $1 million from Maher, which Republicans have seized on as a double-standard, given his language in the past. Democrats, as Axelrod did, insist there is no parity between someone who plays little role beyond the liberal wing of his party as a talk show host, and Limbaugh, who has much greater sway. (Politico)

Romney didn’t denounce Rush, so I don’t have denounce Bill Maher. (see Rule #4).

You can say or do anything you want because you want and don’t have to live up to anything other than what you want at that moment.

Your Opponent is hamstrung by having morals or ethics or a code of conduct, you aren’t.

Rev. Al Sharpton: “[Republicans] have really made Rush Limbaugh such a great part of the conservative movement … you can’t have him as a major spokesman in your movement and then he says something as offensive and misogynist as this and you act like he’s just an entertainer.”

But Bill Maher is “an entertainer” when he says far, far worse things (and even Al has said far worse).

Rev. Al Sharpton that the GOP has “two RCs — Roman Catholics — running and a Mormon, so three cultists running.”

Then you make it appear that you do care by playing games with words, situations, and creating distractions like the “War on Women” and “the economy created 200,000 jobs this month” and just conveniently leave out that 1,000,000 people gave up (and when unemployment goes down because of it you take credit for it, when it doesn’t you ignore it or blame it on corporate america anyhow).

“Not since the days of Franklin Roosevelt had so much fallen on the shoulders of one president. Now when he faced his country who looked to him for answers, he would not dwell in blame or dream in idealism,” narrator Tom Hanks said in the Obama biopic “The Road We’ve Traveled.”

Ah, he’s so great, why are you picking on him! He’s so Great! Wahhhh! 🙂

He’s not to blame. He’s not responsible.

Because they have no standards to begin with. Thus they are always perfect. And they can never be wrong.

Then once you have that going,  you prevent people from thinking things in opposition to you in the first place, so that if they can’t think of opposition they can’t oppose them. Pure Orwell. That’s the beauty of Political Correctness.

You can’t for Border Security without being a “racist”, for example.

A Conservative calling someone a “slut” is a “War on Women”. A Liberals calling a Conservative woman that and ever other offensive word in the English Language “is not the same thing” so it’s just mindless partisanship on your part to object to my blatant hypocrisy and should be ignored and excused.

Trying to make your opponent live up to their standards doesn’t mean you have any of your own.

Another example, Democrats ALWAYS want to spend even more on Education (so the Unions can feed them more money) so if you object, obviously you’re against Educating our Children– not Unions.

So you limit speech. You limit Thought. You have no standard to live up to.

Life is good, if you’re a Liberal, in your mind. You’re Perfect.

MSNBC’s Melissa Harris Perry on Al Sharpton’s radio show: And I’ll say this, I was in Trinity United Church of Christ on the Sunday after September 11th. I was at the time living in Chicago, I attended church the Sunday after September 11, 2001 and I will never forget that Rev. Wright on that day preached a sermon that was an anti-war sermon before anyone was even fully talking about war. Rev. Wright understood that what the American state normally does is to respond to this kind of attack with war and that that war was going to be against poor countries and countries with people of color and it was probably going to be a war that did very little to keep us particularly safe relative to terrorism. And in all of those ways Rev. Wright was exactly right. (RCP)

Our President was also their that day, but he wasn’t  listening! 🙂 (Rev. Wright married Obama and his wife Michelle, baptized their two daughters and is credited by Obama for the title of his book, “The Audacity of Hope.”)

In addition to damning America, he told his congregation on the Sunday after Sept. 11, 2001 that the United States had brought on al Qaeda’s attacks because of its own terrorism.

“We bombed Hiroshima, we bombed Nagasaki, and we nuked far more than the thousands in New York and the Pentagon, and we never batted an eye,” Rev. Wright said in a sermon on Sept. 16, 2001.

“We have supported state terrorism against the Palestinians and black South Africans, and now we are indignant because the stuff we have done overseas is now brought right back to our own front yards. America’s chickens are coming home to roost,” he told his congregation.

Rev. Wright: “God Damn America!”

But since he’s Liberal, and they have no standards all of this was quickly forgotten by the Left and if you brought it up you were a “racist”. 🙂

Oh, and it’s nothing…Obama’s press spokesman Bill Burton said, “Sen. Obama has said repeatedly that personal attacks such as this have no place in this campaign or our politics, whether they’re offered from a platform at a rally or the pulpit of a church. Sen. Obama does not think of the pastor of his church in political terms. Like a member of his family, there are things he says with which Sen. Obama deeply disagrees. But now that he is retired, that doesn’t detract from Sen. Obama’s affection for Rev. Wright or his appreciation for the good works he has done.”

No big deal, move along. Mind you if a Conservative or Republican said even 1% of this crap they’d be hounded until the coming of the end of universe.

But that’s Saul Alinsky for ya.

So what does this lead to?

Of course, the greedy, self-absorbed hubris and need to control everyone and everything so this can continue destroys the society. But hey, who cares, you’re large and charge and can do anything you want, when you want, because you want to. No consequences.

And it’s ALWAYS someone else’s fault. Because after all, You’re Perfect!

Life is good. 🙂

“What has happened, that we are fighting again for reproductive rights?” wonders Rosie O’Donnell, filling-in for Piers Morgan. “And how did guys, get to be the ones to solely discuss it?” responds Angelica Huston. “It’s absolutely astonishing to me, it’s the Dark Ages.”

This misses the point of the actual argument about religious freedom (because Liberals hate religion more and more in large part- especially anything Christian) completely but makes hay out of straw man BS.

They aren’t going to see the real problem because they aren’t capable of it. They simply aren’t.

When they control the government, Government is God. And everyone should bow down to their God. It can fix anything or anyone.

When they are not in Control (or not in Control of a part of it) then Government is the Devil and since you don’t want to be ruled by the Devil now do you?

So you should vote God back in. 🙂

Government is God. So who needs religious freedom in that case.

Only “evil” “right wing” “extremist” Conservatives and “Fundamentalists”. 🙂

And we sure a heck don’t care about them at all. Except to demonize them and destroy them, make fun of them, and make them live up to their own standards.

And since we have none, we’re perfect! 🙂

Kumbuya! Praise The Lord! And pass the Campaign cash! 🙂

Right In Front of Your Face

Here’s something to make the Fluke-Obsessed Left Very unhappy. 🙂

So now Gloria Alred will be calling for a ban on “Saturday Night Live” and we will have to prosecute all it’s writers and ostracize Dan Ackroyd… 🙂

Yes, I was mocking and being being absurd. Not that the Left would ever have known.

They have a fake “War on Women” to fight as distraction of the real issues. But it mkes the Left “feel” good when they can score childish partisan shots.

Excellent Article: http://dailycaller.com/2012/03/05/the-lefts-respect-for-women-a-look-back/

Jennifer Rubin: Limbaugh attack boomerangs on the White House.“The White House and its allies set the standard — condemn, distance, disassociate — with misogynistic entertainers. Now the president is stuck with it… The White House, I am quite certain, never expected this issue to come back to bite the president and his campaign… Call it the legacy of Andrew Breitbart: The left needs to abide by the same rules it sets for its opponents.” Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules. Who was it who said that? Can’t recall offhand…

Hint: Saul Alinsky, “The Rules for Radicals” 🙂

After making a point of standing up for women during the Rush Limbaugh controversy, President Obama is taking flak from one corner for not speaking out against “vile misogynist” and liberal Obama supporter Bill Maher.

Maher, a comedian who specializes in politics, is also a $1 million contributor to Priorities USA Action, a super PAC that supports Obama’s reelection.

Penny Nance, president of the conservative group Concerned Women for America, said in a letter to White House chief of staff Jack Lew that Obama “needs to publicly disassociate himself from Priorities USA” until it returns Maher’s money.

“President Obama cannot put forth the eloquent position he announced on Tuesday, while sending administration officials out to raise money for an organization that not only counts a vile misogynist as its largest single donor, but whose executives actively boast about that vile misogynist’s support,” Nance wrote in her letter to Lew.

Last month, in an about face, Obama approved support for Priorities USA Action, a super PAC backing his campaign, allowing senior White House officials to appear at Priorities fundraisers. . . .

A spokesperson for Maher declined to comment when reached by ABC News.

“It’s never appropriate to degrade women, no matter whose side you’re on,” said Obama campaign spokesman Ben LaBolt in an e-mail.

I would have reiterated the examples Nance used of Maher’s language, but I was informed that such language doesn’t meet with The Post’s standards (not even for illustrative purposes). So you can use your imagination, or go look for yourself, or run a Google search. You’ll be appalled, I imagine.

So why not give the money back? White House press secretary Jay Carney lamely tried to argue that Obama “has no direct ties to Priorities USA and cannot tell the group what to do with respect to Maher.”Oh no, it’s not that easy, Mr. Carney. Didn’t Obama just announce he would help the group with fundraising? I bet if he made a rule that he wouldn’t appear before or assist groups that don’t abide by his “Sasha and Malia” standard they’d snap to. The White House and its allies set the standard — condemn, distance, disassociate — with misogynistic entertainers. Now the president is stuck with it.

Just remember that the Left has no standards, no morals or ethics. That’s how you get away with such blatant hypocrisy and expect no one to notice. And then when they do, just ignore it like it never happened (unless it politically useful to score cheap and childish points for you).

Say whatever happened to those Herman Cain accusers?  🙂

[E]ven the most ardent Obama supporter would have to admit that if Limbaugh crossed the line on acceptable discourse, then Maher obliterated that line, even acknowledging the difference between a political talkmeister and a comedian.”

No, they don’t. That’s the beauty of Doublespeak and Doublethink on the Left. No, they don’t. They can say whatever the hell they want and there are no consequences in their minds.

When you are childishly ruled by your emotions and have no standards to live up to you can or say anything and not hold yourself accountable for any of it.

Blatant hypocrisy is so normal to The Left that they can’t even see it anymore, even if you slap them in the face with it.

And speaking of blatant…

Thomas Sowell: “[I’m] in fear and trembling because I have this terrible feeling that they’re going to end up giving this election to Barack Obama,” Sowell said. “And I cannot imagine what this country will be like after a second term for Obama, after he has had a chance to pack the Supreme Court with his own nominees who will rubber-stamp anything he does regardless of how much it may violate the Constitution.”

“He is an extremely clever politician. He knows that one of the ways to get votes is to simply create dependencies. And he’s doing it all over the place and no one seems to be calling him on it. Most recent thing I heard is he’s going to bail out housing speculators who are one of the reasons for the boom and bust in the housing market. But the point is those are the people who are going to vote for him.”

Sowell urged Republicans not to expect the beleaguered economy to be the key to electoral success in November. He pointed to former President Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s run of victories, despite the Great Depression.

“I hear others taking comfort in the notion that the bad economy will defeat Obama,” he said. “It will not. A far worse economy did not defeat Franklin D. Roosevelt. He swept 46 out of 48 states. After his first [term], in which unemployment never fell as low — even for a single month — as twice what it had been under Obama, he understood that if you came to the rescue of people they were likely to vote for you. Never mind that it may be your own policies that made it necessary for them to need a rescue.”

Sowell explained later why having a Republican nominee who wasn’t a “cult” figure like Obama was a net positive.

“I think the fact that we don’t have a glorious leader is a plus,” he said. “It means there will be a far less chance of having a cult of a leader that we’ve had the last few years, and such as we have had in the past with people like [John F.] Kennedy and FDR. We don’t need that.” (DC)

I agree completely. The Republicans seem determined to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory at every turn.
