“It could probably be shown by facts and figures that there is no distinctly native criminal class except Congress.” – Mark Twain
Nancy Pelosi, self-professed warrior for oppressed women, minorities, the poor and assorted downtrodden masses has done quite well as Robyn the Hood. As Speaker, San Fran Nan’s net wealth doubled the year Obama took office, then doubled again the following year, in the midst of the worst recession since 1928 – and while median net worth for the proletariat plummeted some 20%. From Open Secrets.
More gold from San Fran Nan’s hypocritical hit parade:
“As a practicing and respectful Catholic, this is sacred ground to me when we talk about this”
She is referring here to late term abortion as “sacred,” and implying the Catholic Church concurs – for which the church suspended her from the holy Eucharist.
“Democrats believe we must create jobs, not protect the special interests; build the economy from the middle out, not the top down.”
The stimulus is nothing if not “top down”, and here in Georgia, the average cost was about $5,000,000 per Stimulus job created. The only way to build anything is from a foundation up.
“The American people voted to restore integrity and honesty in Washington, D.C., and the Democrats intend to lead the most honest, most open and most ethical Congress in history.”
Oh, gag me with a stimulus shovel. “Congressional Ethics” is an oxymoron.
The Ship of State has an idiot at the helm.
John F’n Kerry on the most explosive crisis in Europe since the Cuban Missile Crisis…
There is one sign the Soviets can make that would be unmistakable, that would advance dramatically the cause of freedom and peace. General Secretary Gorbachev, if you seek peace, if you seek prosperity for the Soviet Union and eastern Europe, come here to this gate.
Mr. Gorbachev, open this gate.
Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall
But alas, queue the Egg Man & the Walrus
F’n Kerry: Let me be clear, I am he as you are he as you are me and we are all together.
Putin: See how they run like pigs from a gun, see how they fly.
F’n Kerry: I’m crying.
Putin: Man, you been a naughty boy, you let your face grow long.
F’n Kerry: I am the egg man
Putin: No, I am the egg man
F’n Kerry: I am the Walrus.
Putin: Goo goo g’joo…
F’n Kerry: Gesundheit.
Putin: Thank you
F’n Kerry: Welcome
President Obama on the 41st anniversary of Roe v Wade:
Today, as we reflect on the 41st anniversary of the Supreme Court decision in Roe v. Wade, we recommit ourselves to the decision’s guiding principle: that every woman should be able to make her own choices about her body and her health. We reaffirm our steadfast commitment to protecting a woman’s access to safe, affordable health care and her constitutional right to privacy, including the right to reproductive freedom. And we resolve to reduce the number of unintended pregnancies, support maternal and child health, and continue to build safe and healthy communities for all our children. Because this is a country where everyone deserves the same freedom and opportunities to fulfill their dreams.
The Framers of the Constitution could not in their wildest imagination have foreseen that the very protections and freedoms they endeavored to create would one day be perverted to embrace infanticide under the pretense of “women’s health” and “freedom.” Had they known, “Abortion” would certainly have appeared in the Constitution as a repugnant evil absolutely forbidden in civilized society.
President Reagan on the 10th anniversary of Roe v Wade (1983)
“Make no mistake, abortion-on-demand is not a right granted by the Constitution. No serious scholar, including one disposed to agree with the Court’s result, has argued that the framers of the Constitution intended to create such a right. Shortly after the Roe v. Wade decision, Professor John Hart Ely, now Dean of Stanford Law School, wrote that the opinion “is not constitutional law and gives almost no sense of an obligation to try to be.”
This idea that a woman with limited resources or support – or pursuing a career – has “no choice” other than abortion contradicts the very essence of “pro choice.” Given reality and the facts, most would choose life.
Never abandon HOPE! This evil must CHANGE!
Just last week, The “Titanic” Times – ironically never particularly passionate “Clintonistas” – suddenly found themselves desperately weaving Benghazi fairy tales of whole cloth to clear the path for the Proglodite heir apparent, Hillary “Cackles” Clinton. The addled account ignored or missed – and was in outright contradiction to – a comprehensive Congressional report published one month before the Benghazi attack:
AL-QAEDA IN LIBYA: A PROFILE. I strongly recommend reading this. Among many other things, Obama, Clinton and Congress knew a month before the Benghazi attack:
Al-Qaeda has established a core network in Libya, but it remains clandestine and refrains from using the al-Qaeda name. (Hence al-Qaeda’s “absence” in NYT’s account)
Al-Qaeda adherents in Libya used the 2011 Revolution to establish well-armed, well-trained, and combat-experienced militias.
Ansar al-Sharia, led by Sufian Ben Qhumu, a former Guantanamo detainee, has increasingly embodied al-Qaeda’s presence in Libya, as indicated by its active social-media propaganda, extremist discourse, and hatred of the West, especially the United States.
Which brings us to this week’s Grey Lady delusionary debacle – Hillary’s most prominent nemesis and contender (pretender) to her throne presents an opportunity for a ponderous proglodite pounding – for maybe, possibly having something to do with a petty political power prank in NJ. The loony line up:
“Imagining (i.e. mocking) President Christie” – “One Way or the other He Should Resign” – “The ‘I’ in Christie’s Storm” – and of course, from that loony libro ho, Mo Do, “Thunder Road.”
And if that weren’t enough – here, for your ponderous Pièce de résistance, its that Kooky Keynesian Krugman explaining how America’s investors, innovators, entrepreneurs and job creators are in fact “The Enemies of the poor.” Or something. Beam me up, Scotty.
Welcome to the New Age:
Obama’s dismal 39% approval from Gallup reflects more than his pathetic performance. The main street folks are becoming increasingly frustrated with his incessant complaints, excuses, blame shifting, accusations, innuendo, hyperbole… the whole whiney sorry sophomoric shtick. This from that radical right rag of record…The Boston Herald??
President Obama’s tanking approval rating in newly released polls shows Americans are tired of his whining, according to some experts who also see a fighting chance for Republicans to rack up coast-to-coast victories in the 2014 midterm congressional races.
That, of course, assumes the Republicrats don’t drop the ball right when they finally have an advantage, and launch into their classic self-immolation routine. Not a safe bet by any means, yet the pouty POTUS continues to whine about everything from George Bush to Wall Street, to banks, millionaires, billionaires, heirs, Congress, Republicans, Bush, Rush, SCOTUS, FLOTUS, Fox News, the Jews, Tsunamis, Jihadis, Bush, Arab Spring has sprung, Bible clingers, gun clingers, country singers, Secret Service swingers, Bush, Anthropomorphic Global [Ice Storm?] Computer worms, bogus IRS forms, Rodeo Clowns, Flyover Towns, Putin’s frowns over gay Olympic Crowns, Gay significant others, the Muslim Brothers, and young healthy invincibles who won’t pay too much for something they don’t want or need and couldn’t afford if they did wanted it ’cause they’re still “remuneration challenged” [i.e. no freakin jobs]. Oh, and Bush.
All this has me singing a new tune and anticipating a great New Year – what with Oblamacare spiraling in flames toward Terra Firma – Barry’s B.S. battery out of bullets, and the loony lefties shifting into full on panic mode… — why, this should be about the best year since the people people thought were the ones they’d been waiting for turned out to be the cesspool cleaners. Or something.
Thus I leave you with the philosophical reassurance that the world we now inhabit, despite all the democretin defecation is still the best of all possible worlds! Imagine, if you dare, another world, an alternate reality where Barry Soetoro came on the American scene in 1776 and Washington turned up now! Hard to imagine what the little fella would have done, but we’d likely be residing in the not-so-United Provinces of Uzbekistan! Alas, all is well. Have a Happy and prosperous NEW YEAR!!
I saw Handel’s Messiah last night for perhaps the 100th time, yet it’s as fresh and awe inspiring as the day it first brought me to tears.
…and the government shall be upon his shoulders. The King of all the world.
Wonderful Counselor, Almighty God, the Everlasting Father, the Prince of Peace
And He shall reign for ever and ever. Halleluiah!
I #StandWithPhil because Phil stands for Jesus – God bless him and his family today! And you!!
Peace on earth and good will could never exist without Jesus and Hope is the one thing that overshadows and overpowers pretenders who would destroy it while professing to present it.
Diogenes was the notorious cynic and forefather of Stoic Philosophy. He renounced his citizenship, divested himself of money and possessions, and lived in an overturned washtub at the marketplace. He used his simple lifestyle and behavior to criticize the social values and institutions of a corrupt society. He’s best known for walking about Athens with a lit lantern, in broad daylight, claiming to be “looking for an honest man.” It struck a nerve with the folks, and he became quite the 3rd century BC celebrity.
Diogenes was also known as the only one ever to mock Alexander the Great – and retain his head. Alexander sought out the rock star/philosopher, and found him sunning himself at the market. He asked Diogenes if there were something he could do for him, to which Diogenes replied, “Yes, stand out of my light.”
Later, Alexander spotted him looking thoughtfully at a pile of human bones. Diogenes explained, “I am searching for the bones of your father but cannot distinguish them from those of a slave.” Ouch.
I hate cynicism. I’ve always tried to keep positive perspectives in the most dismal circumstances, but given the current political, economic and cultural circus – and now intentional deception and obfuscation about government actions clearly injurious to the wellbeing of our children – how can anyone with the brains God gave a coconut not become a world class, kick ass cynic?
I could take my lantern to DC – but “looking for an honest man” there is infinitely more absurd than in ancient Athens.
Let’s just say to the empty emperor:
