When Liberals Attack

“What he did was make an unremarkable observation about 80 years of Supreme Court history,” Carney told reporters during a White House briefing dominated by the President’s ‘threat’ to the Supreme Court.

“Since the 1930s the Supreme Court has without exception deferred to Congress when it comes to Congress’s authority to pass legislation to regulate matters of national economic importance such as health care, 80 years,” Carney said.

“He did not mean and did not suggest that … it would be unprecedented for the court to rule that a law was unconstitutional. That’s what the Supreme Court is there to do,” Carney said.

Wow! that’s some spin. Has the Planet starting moving backwards yet?

FAST & FURIOUS

Despite the so-called “ongoing,” year long internal investigation by the inspector general, Eric Holder has yet to be interviewed.

During an appearance in Chicago, the attorney general made the comment about the inspector general’s office at the Justice Department, which has been examining who is responsible for employing the risky tactic known as gun-walking.

Holder said he would talk to the inspector general investigators when they request it.

Insider ATF sources have told me the inspector general report is nearly finished, but that it hasn’t been made public because “they are trying to come up with a report everyone can agree on.” So, not only is the “ongoing” investigation from the DOJ inspector general not really “ongoing” at all, DOJ doesn’t plan to produce a factual report, but instead one that everyone can agree on. This isn’t surprising considering the inspector general, Cynthia A. Schnedar, is a good friend and former colleague to Eric Holder. She has also been leaking information in order to jeopardize Issa’s investigation. (Katie Pavlich)

MORE DOJ FUN

PHOENIX, Ariz. — The day after negotiations between the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office and the U.S. Department of Justice fell apart, Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery accused federal prosecutors of playing games, instead of handing over evidence to back their claims.

“I demand as the duly elected officer with responsibility for prosecutions, to be given that information immediately,” Montgomery said. “This posturing, this playing hide the ball in the context of civil litigation, is disgusting, particularly when it involves criminal prosecutions”

“Put up, or shut up,” he added.

Montgomery sent DOJ officials a letter on December 16, the day after they announced findings of racial profiling and discriminatory policing within MCSO, requesting documentation of ongoing instances of such claims.

Negotiations between MCSO and Justice Department officials crumbled on Tuesday when attorneys for Arpaio refused to agree to have an independent monitor oversee terms of an agreement.

A DOJ spokesperson said the monitor would ensure “fair and sustainable reforms.” but Arpaio’s attorneys said the monitor would infringe on Arpaio’s law enforcement authority.

Kind of remind you of de-segregation?

You need a Kindergarten monitor you “racist” “profilers”

We have to watch over you racists and make sure you’re being “fair” to minorities and illegals.

And of course, they are just playing games. They just want the perception out there and have no intention of actually backing it up.

Keep the pot stirred up.

Smearing people without any ethical standards is just so Liberal.

GIVE THE KING YOUR TITHE

A bill authored by a Southland lawmaker that could potentially allow the federal government to prevent any Americans who owe back taxes from traveling outside the U.S. is one step closer to becoming law.

Senate Bill 1813 was introduced back in November by Senator Barbara Boxer (D-Los Angeles) to “reauthorize Federal-aid highway and highway safety construction programs, and for other purposes” .

In addition to authorizing appropriations for federal transportation and infrastructure programs, the “Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act” or “MAP-21″ includes a provision that would allow for the “revocation or denial” of a passport for anyone with “certain unpaid taxes” or “tax delinquencies”.

Section 40304 of the legislation states that any individual who owes more than $50,000 to the Internal Revenue Service may be subject to “action with respect to denial, revocation, or limitation of a passport”.

The bill does allow for exceptions in the event of emergency or humanitarian situations or limited return travel to the U.S., or in cases when any tax debt is currently being repaid in a “timely manner” or when collection efforts have been suspended.

Like ObamaCare tax penalties (if the thing survives)?

You will tithe your King or else peasant!

President Obama ought to be a figure skater, the way he spins.  We’ve heard facts and figures distorted, stretched, embellished, exaggerated, diminished, overlooked, ignored, and otherwise rent meaningless by the Obama White House.  Why heck, you might even reach the conclusion that the future is bright, if you hear and grant any credence to the so-called “information” emerging from the president’s staff and spokespersons.  But it’s simply not true.

In 1930, 1931, 1932, and 1933, the Great Depression got underway with major contractions in the economy.  But then in the next three years, the economy grew by 11%, 9%, and 13%, respectively.  Compare that with the current economy, which while it’s not currently in recession, is not recovering.  In 2010, it grew by 3%, in 2011, it grew by 1.7%, and in 2012 it looks to grow by about 2%.  This is not a recovery – it’s treading water.

I believe that the economy is actually straining at the leash – champing at the bit – but what’s holding it back is the continued residence of President Obama at 1600 Pennsylvania.  Once he’s gone, business will take off like a cat with turpentine on its hiney.  And Americans know it, so they’re going to get out and vote for the GOP nominee in November.  And it doesn’t much matter who that is.  The president, as a result of his obfuscation, lies, and exaggerations, has angered people, and that makes him vulnerable to being beaten by a Ham Sandwich.

Recovery?  What Recovery? (Junkman-KFYI)

I love that segment.:)

Democratic officials Wednesday launched a two-pronged attack on states with new laws requiring identification before voting, the highlight being a call to boycott Coke, Walmart and others that back a leading organization pushing for voter ID laws.

Coke was quick to react to the political boycott threat, pulling support from the targeted group just five hours after it was called. Walmart said that support for a group does not mean it backs every decision by those groups.

At issue: Liberal claims that some states are trying to keep minority voters from the polls via voter ID laws, a suggestion conservatives call silly.

“The Coca-Cola Company has elected to discontinue its membership with the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC). Our involvement with ALEC was focused on efforts to oppose discriminatory food and beverage taxes, not on issues that have no direct bearing on our business. We have a long-standing policy of only taking positions on issues that impact our Company and industry.”

WIMPS!

ALEC by the way is the same origination that the AFL-CIO said was behind George Zimmerman and the Trayvon Martin shooting.

“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.”

So do I smell a new Liberal Meme and boogeyman?:)

PHOTO ID VOTING

The group complained that some states want to limit the time allotted for early voting, bar ex-felons from voting and require government identification to vote. Polls show that most Americans back the laws. But Clyburn compared them to segregation era “Jim Crow” laws and he said that he is “very, very anxious” that the conservative Supreme Court “as it is presently constituted” will support the new anti-voter fraud laws.

Jim Crow, really?  Gee, getting on a plane requires a picture ID (or a Passport for international) must be hell for Liberals but then again they want to prevent you from going anyhow if you haven’t paid your tithe to the king.:)

You need an ID for the following (not comprehensive):

obtain a bank account

College Entry (gee I thought they had none?)
obtain a credit card
obtain a passport
write a check
make a credit card purchase
apply for a loan to purchase anything
to prove your age
to get married
to receive a marriage license
to drive
to buy a house
to close on a house
to get medical care
to get on a plane
to get insurance on anything
to get a job
to get a post office box
to get a hunting license
to get a fishing license
to get a business license
to cash a paycheck
rent an apartment
rent a hotel room
rent a car
rent furniture
rent tools and equipment
receive welfare
receive social security
receive food stamps
buy cigarettes
buy alcohol
buy a bus ticket
buy a cell phone
buy any antihistamine
go in to a casino
go in to a bar
go to college
have your water turned on
have your electricity turned on
have your cable turned on
have your gas turned on
obtain trash pick up service
pick up a package from the post office
pick up a package from fed ex
pick up a package from ups
pick up a prescription

Even grandma (who conservatives want to throw off a cliff :)), who is retired and needs to cash her check, has some form of government I.D.

The Democrats have to protect their dead voters, ACORN staffers, and Illegal Alien Voters.

“Any revolutionary change must be preceded by a passive, affirmative, non-challenging attitude toward change among the mass of our people. They must feel so frustrated, so defeated, so lost, so futureless in the prevailing system that they are willing to let go of the past and change the future. This acceptance is the reformation essential to any revolution.” — Saul Alinsky

“A Marxist begins with his prime truth that all evils are caused by the exploitation of the proletariat by the capitalists. From this he logically proceeds to the revolution to end capitalism, then into the third stage of reorganization into a new social order of the dictatorship of the proletariat, and finally the last stage — the political paradise of communism.”  p.10 Rules for Radical, Saul Alinksy

“An organizer must stir up dissatisfaction and discontent… He must create a mechanism that can drain off the underlying guilt for having accepted the previous situation for so long a time. Out of this mechanism, a new community organization arises….
     “The job then is getting the people to move, to act, to participate; in short, to develop and harness the necessary power to effectively conflict with the prevailing patterns and change them. When those prominent in the status quo turn and label you an ‘agitator’ they are completely correct, for that is, in one word, your function—to agitate to the point of conflict.” p.117

The Silly News of the Week

What’s wrong with this picture? Illegal aliens and terrorists from Islamic countries are flooding into the United States on a daily basis, but a little boy in the UK has been denied a vacation to Disney World with his grandparents by US Immigration because he reportedly posed a “threat” of not leaving the country after his vacation.

Seriously. No Joke!

The story was in the UK Telegraph.

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/northamerica/usa/8259484/Boy-9-has-Disney-World-trip-ruined-after-US-immigration-rules-him-a-threat.html

Way to go Janet! Yeah, we have to keep 9 year old British schoolkids out of the country, they are evil!

Mexican Drug Cartels, Coyotes, criminals, and gangs on the other hand, not so much…

TUSCON SHOOTING UPDATE: The Far Left at NPR are having a moment of “Brown Relief” over Jared Lee Loughner.

More brilliant insight coming from NPR.

Daisy Hernandez, former editor of ColorLines magazine, is relieved that Jared Loughner is a “gringo” or white man rather than a “brown” man after the shootings over the weekend.

From NPR:

I wasn’t the only person on Saturday who rushed to her Android when news came of the Tucson shooting.

What I wanted to know was the killer’s surname.

My eyes scanned the mobile papers. I held my breath. Finally, I saw it: Jared Loughner. Not a Ramirez, Gonzalez or Garcia. It’s safe to say there was a collective sigh of brown relief when the Tucson killer turned out to be a gringo.

I admit sadly that it was only after I saw the shooter’s gringo surname that I was able to go on and read the rest of the news about those who lost their lives on Saturday and those who, like Rep. Giffords, were severely wounded.

Which side is bringing up the race issue again? (Townhall.com)

But don’t worry, if you complain to NPR you’ll be the racist!:)

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

Illinois, ignoring the axiom that when you tax something you get less of it, expects economic activity to be unaffected by these disincentives and expects the added revenues to close a $15 billion budget shortfall. Ignoring another axiom — that when you’re in a hole, stop digging — the legislation that Gov. Pat Quinn signed allows a 2% increase in spending.

In addition to its budget shortfall, Illinois owes $6 billion to vendors and has unfunded pension liabilities estimated to be as high as $78 billion.

“It’s like living next door to ‘The Simpsons’ — you know, the dysfunctional family down the block,” Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels, a possible 2012 GOP presidential candidate, said in an interview on Chicago’s WLS-AM. Daniels notes that Illinois-based Caterpillar recently chose to make a major investment in Indiana with a plant to build locomotives in Muncie.

According to the Tax Foundation, a nonpartisan research group in Washington, the tax hike would force Illinois businesses to pay the highest combined national-local corporate tax rate in the industrialized world.

And you know the liberals will be both surprised and angry (at business) when it falls flat on it face.

It was your fault!!:)

Americans for Tax Reform found that the average personal income-tax rate in states losing seats was a high 6.05%. The average rate in states gaining seats was a more modest 2.8%. Per capita government spending is also lower: $4,008 for the gainers, $5,117 for the losers. (IBD)

Tom Brokaw on MSDNC:

Gun control is too simple a phrase to define all the complications and nuances of it, frankly. In Arizona they have a wide open system. I would be nervous about going into a bar or restaurant in Arizona on a Saturday night where people can carry concealed without permits.

Gee, thanks Tom for your uninformed, hyberbolic, liberal BS. Don’t bother coming then.

Go to Illinois instead, they’ll need the cash.

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

<Bill> Maher said that Tea Party members are crude and poorly educated, people who the founding fathers would have wanted to keep far from political influence.

“The one thing they never argued about was that political power must stay in the hands of the smartest people,” said Maher, “and out of the hands of the dumbest loudmouths slowing down the checkout line at Home Depot.”

Gee, thanks Bill. I always value the opinion of a Liberal Marxist Elitist who things he’s funny.

Yeah, I’ll take that under advisement.

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

Chris “tingle up my leg” Matthews ‘Journalist’ at MSDNC:

“Sam, it seems to me it is a big question,” Matthews said. “So much of this attack on Obama has been ad hominem – directed at the person of the president, whether it’s somebody – some cracker out there on the right calling him — some birther-type who says he’s not an American or someone more sophisticated but basically saying he’s a socialist. Will this be on the merits of the bill? Will it stay off the personal? Is it your hunch coming into Wednesday’s vote?”

Ad hominem much, Chris?  hateful much?? And that softball question was squishy you have to squeeze Lake Michigan out of it!

So on that note, the culmination of this silliness with a compilation of sorts.

A shameful week for America’s liberal elites. The top 10 most ridiculous left-wing attacks on US conservatives following the Arizona shootings

By Nile Gardner, UK Telegraph

I have compiled below a list of some of the most egregious examples of Leftist hysteria over the past week. It is by no means an exhaustive list – this list could easily be expanded to 20 or 30 further instances, especially crude statements from liberal politicians. New York Times columnist Paul Krugman was among the very first to link the mass shooting to conservatives, and two of his hugely irresponsible pieces feature in the list below. The list also includes a major article from American Guardian writer Michael Tomasky, as an example of how the Left-wing vitriol of the last week emanated not only from the east and west coasts of the United States, but also in some cases from across the Atlantic.

So here is my top 10 list, which Telegraph readers will no doubt wish to add to in their comments.

1. Paul Krugman, The New York Times, January 8, 2011

We don’t have proof yet that this was political, but the odds are that it was. She’s been the target of violence before. And for those wondering why a Blue Dog Democrat, the kind Republicans might be able to work with, might be a target, the answer is that she’s a Democrat who survived what was otherwise a GOP sweep in Arizona, precisely because the Republicans nominated a Tea Party activist.

You know that Republicans will yell about the evils of partisanship whenever anyone tries to make a connection between the rhetoric of Beck, Limbaugh, etc. and the violence I fear we’re going to see in the months and years ahead. But violent acts are what happen when you create a climate of hate.

2. Keith Olbermann, MSNBC, January 8, 2011

This morning in Arizona, this time of the ever-escalating, borderline-ecstatic invocation of violence in fact or in fantasy in our political discourse, closed. It is essential tonight not to demand revenge, but to demand justice; to insist not upon payback against those politicians and commentators who have so irresponsibly brought us to this time of domestic terrorism, but to work to change the minds of them and their supporters – or if those minds tonight are too closed, or if those minds tonight are too unmoved, or if those minds tonight are too triumphant, to make sure by peaceful means that those politicians and commentators and supporters have no further place in our system of government.

If Sarah Palin, whose website put and today scrubbed bullseye targets on 20 Representatives including Gabby Giffords, does not repudiate her own part in amplifying violence and violent imagery in politics, she must be dismissed from politics – she must be repudiated by the members of her own party, and if they fail to do so, each one of them must be judged to have silently defended this tactic that today proved so awfully foretelling, and they must in turn be dismissed by the responsible members of their own party.

3. Pima County Sheriff Clarence Dupnik, Press Conference, Tucson, January 8, 2011

When you look at unbalanced people, how they respond to the vitriol that comes out of certain mouths about tearing down the government. The anger, the hatred, the bigotry that goes on in this country is getting to be outrageous. And unfortunately, Arizona I think has become sort of the capital. We have become the mecca for prejudice and bigotry.

4. Michael Tomasky, The Guardian, January 9, 2011

Republicans and even Tea Partiers will have the sense – again, for a while – to steer clear of directly gun-related rhetoric. We won’t be hearing much in the near term about “second amendment remedies” and insurrection and so forth. But this will be temporary. Guns are simply too central to the mythology of the American right, as is the idea of liberty being wrested from tyrants only at gunpoint. For the American right to stop talking about armed insurrection would be like American liberals dropping the subjects of race and gender. It’s too encoded in conservative DNA.

… Direct responsibility for what happened Saturday? No. Mentally ill people are mentally ill. The Beatles weren’t responsible for the messages that Charles Manson heard in their music. But there’s a difference. Paul McCartney had no earthly reason to think that an innocent song about a fairground ride (Helter Skelter) would lead a man to commit barbarous acts of murder. Today’s Republicans and conservative commentators, however, surely understand the fire they’re playing with. But they do it, and a tragedy like Saturday’s won’t stop them, as long as they can maintain a phoney plausible deniability and as long as hate continues to pay dividends at the ballot box.

5. Paul Krugman, The New York Times, January 9, 2011

it’s the saturation of our political discourse — and especially our airwaves — with eliminationist rhetoric that lies behind the rising tide of violence.

Where’s that toxic rhetoric coming from? Let’s not make a false pretense of balance: it’s coming, overwhelmingly, from the right. It’s hard to imagine a Democratic member of Congress urging constituents to be “armed and dangerous” without being ostracized; but Representative Michele Bachmann, who did just that, is a rising star in the G.O.P.

And there’s a huge contrast in the media. Listen to Rachel Maddow or Keith Olbermann, and you’ll hear a lot of caustic remarks and mockery aimed at Republicans. But you won’t hear jokes about shooting government officials or beheading a journalist at The Washington Post. Listen to Glenn Beck or Bill O’Reilly, and you will.

… So will the Arizona massacre make our discourse less toxic? It’s really up to G.O.P. leaders. Will they accept the reality of what’s happening to America, and take a stand against eliminationist rhetoric? Or will they try to dismiss the massacre as the mere act of a deranged individual, and go on as before? If Arizona promotes some real soul-searching, it could prove a turning point. If it doesn’t, Saturday’s atrocity will be just the beginning.

6. Michael Daly, The New York Daily News, January 9, 2011

But anyone with any sense at all knows that violent language can incite actual violence, that metaphor can incite murder. At the very least, Palin added to a climate of violence.

And, now that Palin may have the blood of more than some poor caribou on her hands, I wonder if she will continue putting people in cross hairs and calling on folks to RELOAD!

7. George Packer, The New Yorker, January 10, 2011

But it won’t do to dig up stray comments by Obama, Allen Grayson, or any other Democrat who used metaphors of combat over the past few years, and then try to claim some balance of responsibility in the implied violence of current American politics. (Most of the Obama quotes that appear in the comments were lame attempts to reassure his base that he can get mad and fight back, i.e., signs that he’s practically incapable of personal aggression in politics.)

In fact, there is no balance—none whatsoever. Only one side has made the rhetoric of armed revolt against an oppressive tyranny the guiding spirit of its grassroots movement and its midterm campaign. Only one side routinely invokes the Second Amendment as a form of swagger and intimidation, not-so-coyly conflating rights with threats.

Only one side’s activists bring guns to democratic political gatherings. Only one side has a popular national TV host who uses his platform to indoctrinate viewers in the conviction that the President is an alien, totalitarian menace to the country. Only one side fills the AM waves with rage and incendiary falsehoods. Only one side has an iconic leader, with a devoted grassroots following, who can’t stop using violent imagery and dividing her countrymen into us and them, real and fake. Any sentient American knows which side that is; to argue otherwise is disingenuous.

8. Arizona Congressman Raul Grijalva, in an interview with The Huffington Post, January 8, 2011

“The climate has gotten so toxic in our political discourse, setting up for this kind of reaction for too long. It’s unfortunate to say that. I hate to say that,” Grijalva said in an interview with The Huffington Post. “If you’re an opponent, you’re a deadly enemy,” Grijalva said of the mindset among Arizona extremists. “Anybody who contributed to feeding this monster had better step back and realize they’re threatening our form of government.”

Grijalva said that Tea Party leader Sarah Palin should reflect on the rhetoric that she has employed. “She — as I mentioned, people contributing to this toxic climate — Ms. Palin needs to look at her own behavior, and if she wants to help the public discourse, the best thing she could do is to keep quiet.”

9. Harold Meyerson, The Washington Post, January 12, 2011

The primary problem with the political discourse of the right in today’s America isn’t that it incites violence per se. It’s that it implants and reinforces paranoid fears about the government and conservatism’s domestic adversaries.

Much of the culture and thinking of the American right – the mainstream as well as the fringe – has descended into paranoid suppositions about the government, the Democrats and the president. This is not to say that the left wing doesn’t have a paranoid fringe, too. But by every available measure, it’s the right where conspiracy theories have exploded. A fabricated specter of impending governmental totalitarianism haunts the right’s dreams.

… That doesn’t make Beck, Erickson, Rupert Murdoch and their ilk responsible for Tucson. It does make them responsible for promoting a paranoid culture that makes America a more divided and dangerous land.

10. Jane Fonda, Twitter, January 8, 2011

And finally, Oscar-winning actress and liberal darling Jane Fonda emerged from hibernation and delivered some of the most tasteless tweets in the brief history of Twitter, brazenly exploiting the shooting of a Congresswoman to make a monumentally shallow political attack. (hat tip: NewsBusters)

@SarahPalinUSA holds responsibility. As does the violence-provoking rhetoric of the Tea Party 2:51 PM Jan 8th via Echofon

Progressive Arizona Rep Gabrielle Giffords is shot. In her ads, Sarah Palin had her targeted in a gun site. Inciting to violence. 2:11 PM Jan 8th via Echofon

But don’t worry, according to the Left, they are the most tolerant, sensitive, rational, mature, caring, loving and Intellectually Superior beings on this planet.

Just ask them.

Political Cartoon

Don’t Worry, It’s All Bush’s Fault!! Go #1 and #2!

Michael Ramirez Cartoon

Wanna see MINORITY Leader Pelosi spout the same old parrot, I mean party, lines about how she Democrats lost 2 months ago in the worst “shellacking” in nearly a century BECAUSE IT WAS GEORGE W BUSH’S FAULT!

Yes, even in 2011 it’s still his fault! And those mean old, rich-loving obstructionist Republicans!

http://www.cnn.com/video/#/video/politics/2011/01/07/jk.pelosi.dem.loss.bush.cnn

http://www.tradingeconomics.com/Economics/Unemployment-Rate.aspx?Symbol=USD

So as predicted the liberals, and especially Queen Pelosi learned ABSOLUTELY NOTHING for Nov 2nd other than what they have have known in their own heads all along, it’s not their fault!

It’s not their fault that unemployment has been over 9.4% since the Spring of 2009 (nearly 2 Bleeping years!!).

Nope, Not their fault. They were large and in-charge, but it wasn’t their fault!!

That there “economic” and “jobs” focus passing Health Care boondoggles, crushing Financial reforms, Oil Moratoriums, EPA,FDA,FCC,FTC regulatory dictatorships, and their Class Warfare and Race Warfare hasn’t doesn’t any good is because of Bush and the Republicans!

Liberals have to be the thickest, greediest, most narcissistic people on Earth.

And Liberal Politicians lead the way! And Queen Pelosi is the true Queen of them all.

President Obama insisted America was ‘digging itself out of hole’ today as new figures offered a glimmer of hope for the country’s beleaguered economy.

103,000 new jobs were created last month and the unemployment rate dropped to 9.4 percent, its lowest level in 19 months, the Labor Department said. (Daily Mail)

However, to get a true understanding of the data we must go further into the story.  For example, the economy needs to create 125,000 new jobs per month simply to keep up with the population demands for work.  You will notice that even during December, one of the highest months for hiring due to temporary retail needs, only 110,000 jobs were created, and thus there was a deficit of 15,000 jobs last month simply to stay even with the population. (Globe & Mail)

Secondly, the Labor Department does not record those unemployed who are not out actively looking for work.  Once someone falls off the unemployment benefit roles, there is no requirement to apply for jobs to ensure benefits.  When these people fall off, they are no longer counted in the unemployment data.

Still, the unemployment rate has topped 9 percent for 20 months, the longest such streak on record. And even with last year’s job gains, the unemployment rate fell only from 9.7 percent to 9.4 percent. (Daily Mail)

That would not be the “saved or created” jobs in Unions and government jobs, by the way…

So we had less employment than we need, we had by estimates something like 260,000 people stop looking (so they aren’t counted) and this was the good news!

But don’t worry, this is all Bush’s Fault too!.

And when Ben Bernacke estimates that it could be 5 years before employment levels are “normal” that too is Bush’s Fault! (and if unemployment over 8% becomes “normal” that too will be Bush’s fault).

This is the slowest recovery, if you can call it a recovery, since the 1930s. Businesses beset by the highest corporate tax burden in the world and the looming presence of ObamaCare and cap-and-trade regulation are simply marking time in an uncertain future.

Of the more than 14.5 million people out of work in December, more than 6.4 million have been out six months or longer. The mean length of time the unemployed have been out of work rose a third straight month to 34.2 weeks, the third highest level ever.

Add in those who’ve stopped looking for work or who are working part-time but want to work full-time, and the number of unemployed climbs to 26.1 million — for a jobless rate of 16.7%. (IBD)

But that too is Bush’s Fault!

If by a miracle Obama is re-elected that won’t be Bush’s fault, but the economic ruin left by ObamaCare (if it survives that long) as it kicks into high gear will be. Just wait and watch.

Obama, if re-elected will leave office in 2016, just at the point where ObamaCare really hits the gas with spending.

But that will still be Bush’s Fault if it survives The Supreme Court or the House Republicans.

Isn’t that nice to know. Your economic ruin in 2016 is because of George W. Bush!

You get the feeling that we will all be dead and the Democrats in 2111 will still be blaming Bush for everything.

Nauseating isn’t the word for it.

Unacceptable is.

POLITICAL CORRECTNESS UPDATE

The words “mother” and “father” will be removed from U.S. passport applications and replaced with gender neutral terminology, the State Department says.

“The words in the old form were ‘mother’ and ‘father,’” said Brenda Sprague, deputy assistant Secretary of State for Passport Services. “They are now ‘parent one’ and ‘parent two.’”

A statement on the State Department website noted: “These improvements are being made to provide a gender neutral description of a child’s parents and in recognition of different types of families.” The statement didn’t note if it was for child applications only. (FOX)

So my mother who passed away on Sept 29th was she #1 or #2??

Gay rights groups are applauding the decision.

“Changing the term mother and father to the more global term of parent allows many different types of families to be able to go and apply for a passport for their child without feeling like the government doesn’t recognize their family,” said Jennifer Chrisler, executive director of Family Equality Council.

Her organization lobbied the government for several years to remove the words from passport applications. (FOX)

Global Term??? What the F*ck!

So how long before Mother and Father or even ‘Parent’ is Orwellianly struck from the language?

After all, it is discriminatory!

So should we now call it the “M”-Word or the new “f-Word” or the “P” word and start re-writing classic literature like they have to Huckleberry Finn??

Mommy Dearest is now #2 Dearest? Or #1 Dearest??

I Guess TV Moms like Mrs Cleaver will just now be TV #1’s or #2’s

So what happens to “going #1” or “#2” Then??:)

Sh*t Happens I guess.

Especially when Liberals have their way.

But don’t worry it’s all Bush’s Fault and the homophobic (which is anyone who might disagree with the radical gay agenda much like being  a “domestic terrorist” if you are a tea partier according to the left.)

So just remember, if you’re toaster over burns your toast or you Tasimo Brew Bot screws up your cup of morning joe that it’s George W Bush and his evil Corporate friends who screwed you!

Take comfort in the knowledge.

 

LA Vs. AZ

No, it’s no the Lakers vs. The Suns.

But it is LA vs Los Suns.😦

Los Angeles’ city council votes to boycott Arizona for its enforcement of existing federal law. No word yet on how China’s human rights violations will be treated. Ignorance of the law is no excuse.

The next time the Lakers play Los Suns in Phoenix, traveling fans are advised to bring their own snacks. The L.A. City Council voted 13-1 on Wednesday to economically boycott the state of Arizona for daring to protect its borders against the crime, violence and illegal immigration that recently took the life of an Arizona rancher and has made Phoenix the kidnapping capital of the U.S.

Council member and co-sponsor Janice Hahn, who is also running for California lieutenant governor, was asked about the Lakers’ upcoming NBA playoff series with the Suns. Games 3 and 4 are scheduled in Phoenix. Hahn told NBCLA, “If you go, we’re hoping you take your own snacks and won’t buy things in Arizona.” This is beyond silly.

The Arizona law, SB1070, empowers local police officers to check the immigration status of individuals whom they have encountered during a “lawful contact,” if an officer reasonably suspects the person stopped of being in the country illegally, and if an inquiry into the person’s status is “practicable.”

Councilman Ed Reyes, one of the measure’s co-sponsors, sees it differently: “As an American, I cannot go to Arizona today without a passport. If I come across an officer who’s having a bad day and feels that the picture on my ID is not me, I can be … deported, no questions asked. That is not American.” Neither is it true.

The police are authorized to act only when an individual is suspected of some other violation of the law and “reasonable suspicion exists that the person is an alien who is unlawfully present in the United States.” The law says that police “may not solely consider race, color or national origin” in inquiring about the immigration status of a suspect individual. However, if you’re caught speeding without a valid driver’s license and don’t speak a word of English, that’s probable cause.

This doesn’t make Arizona South Africa or require Councilman Reyes to carry a passport lest he be immediately taken to the transporter room and beamed to Mexico City. As Heather MacDonald of City Journal points out, the law does require legal aliens to carry their immigration documents. This mirrors an existing federal law that also applies to Swedish moms.

Failure to comply with the federal law on carrying immigration papers becomes a state misdemeanor under the Arizona law. Critics of Arizona enlisting local police to enforce federal immigration law fail to note the existence of the federal 287G program that trains local police to do just that.

Los Angeles, of course, is considered a sanctuary city for illegal aliens. This policy is embodied in Special Order 40, a more than 30-year-old Los Angeles Police Department rule that bars police from arresting anyone based solely on their immigration status, or from notifying immigration officials about an illegal immigrant in their custody.

We won’t even go into the irony of L.A. declaring a boycott of another state at the very time its most productive citizens have declared a silent boycott against the city — leaving it in droves due to the corrupt and highly racialized political culture, high taxes, excessive regulations and overtly hostile attitude toward businesses and entrepreneurs.

Addressing her state’s new law, Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer said: “It’s already the law in the United States, and I have a responsibility to stand up and protect the people of Arizona and we will do that. I find it really interesting that we have people out there that are attempting a boycott in favor of illegal actions in Arizona. That to me is just unbelievable.”

We find it unbelievable too. There are plenty of unsavory places on this planet to boycott. We also know Phoenix is lovely this time of year. (IBD)

I would add, since Arizonians love to to go to LA and San Diego for vacations in the summer time that maybe you should rethink that.

Your “racist” “Nazi” License plate may attack unwanted attention from the California Holy Crusaders.

After all, if they want to boycott us, why not boycott them?

Go to Utah instead. It’s beautiful country and they don’t have any “sanctuary” cities like California, Colorado, New Mexico and parts of Texas.

And you won’t risk some liberal vandalizing your property in the name of their “moral superiority”.

Or you could go to these places and just say “in your face”.

Your Choice.

As of yesterday, AG Eric Holder still hasn’t read the law. But Holder’s spokesman, Matthew Miller, said Friday that his boss “has been thoroughly briefed on the law, which has already been amended since the initial version passed, and has heard concerns from a range of law enforcement and community officials. He and the Department will continue to review it in detail to determine what options are available to the federal government.”

Translation: He hasn’t read it and probably never will.

It’s beneath his time and stature to do so.

But he will pontificate and pass judgment though.

Beside, it’s better to not know the truth and look a fool than to know the truth and BE a fool.

That’s what Liberals do.
