…which caused me to recall this skit from Monty Python’sThe Meaning of Life:
Whatever happened to “it’s my body, my choice?” Is it truly a donation if you don’t have a choice in the matter? Hmmm. I guess folks could theoretically opt out, but I still don’t like the precedent that this law would set. What say you?
This article detailing the secrets of Obama’s “underappreciated” success was linked to by a friend of mine on a social networking site. She’s thoroughly brainwashed, and I didn’t see the use in pointing out to her how bloody stupid this this, since she thinks communism is a dandy idea, for reals. I skimmed through the article, produced by TIME magazine in partnership with Communist News Network CNN, thinking, “What planet are these people from? And how can we send them back to it?”
Lets peruse some of the statements made that are so absurd, they gave me a Porky Pig as Friar Tuck moment of unmitigated mirth:
But by Election Day 2010, Obama will have soundly achieved many of his chief campaign promises while running a highly competent, scandal-free government.
Obama’s two best personnel decisions are probably the two men serving right below him: Vice President Joe Biden and White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel. Yes, Biden still falls victim to caricature as an irrepressible big mouth and is the butt of late-night jokes. And Emanuel can be overly brash and flutter nerves on Capitol Hill and among Administration allies. But Obama knew what he was getting in both men, and they have performed up to or above his expectations.
You simply cannot make this shit up! Oh, yes, and furthermore…according to the author, Mark Halperin, Obama (unlike Bill Clinton) has managed to “preserve the majesty of office.” *cough* There is already such a wealth of evidence to refute every statement this wingnut makes in this embarrassingly fawning, ass-kissing article, that a person would have to be completely without reason to agree with it. Yet my friend thinks it is all true, but I guess that’s what a liberal education will buy you.
George Soros seems to pull the strings of the Obama administration…this postulates that he controls much of our information technology, as well, particularly Google (no surprise). Apple and Microsoft apparently have similar political leanings, and are directly influenced by Soros’ “open society” (i.e., socialist) vision for the world. Pay particular attention to part where Bill Gates is discussing ways in which to reduce the world population (this is particularly creepy): vaccines, health care, and reproductive health services (code words for abortion). The abortion part, I get. No babies = fewer people, if that is your objective. But vaccines and health care are supposed to improve life expectancy, so WTF does he mean by that statement? It sounds kinda sinister.
It’s not that I’ve had nothing to post about, it’s that there is too much to post about, and real life gets in the way of sitting down and composing my thoughts. Too much nasty shit is coming down the pike, and it sometimes gets overwhelming to to contemplate it all. For instance:
Apparently, if you’re not a socialist, you’re a racist. I didn’t get that memo…did you? Also, according to the CEO of ACORN, the Tea Party is a “bowel movement.” Bertha Lewis told a group called the “Young Democratic Socialists” that “This is not rhetoric or hyperbole — this is real,” Lewis said. “This rise of this Tea Party so-called movement — bowel movement in my estimation — and this blatant uncovering and ripping off the mask of racism.” She also said that we are plotting their doom. Which we are. Meanwhile, stay classy, Bertha.
We all knew it was coming, and as promised, The Cap and Tax bill is scheduled to be voted on in the Senate. This legislation is ugly, folks; not that we’d expect anything less of our Congresscreeps. Among the many draconian gems we can expect to have imposed from this legislation, the most economically disastrous one is this: you will not be able to sell your house. As stated at Repubx:
In effect, this bill prevents you from selling your home without the permission of the EPA administrator.
To get this permission, you will have to have the energy efficiency of your home measured.
Then the government will tell you what your new energy efficiency requirement is and you will be forced to make modifications to your home under the retrofit provisions of this Act to comply with the new energy and water efficiency requirements.
Then you will have to get your home measured again and get a license (called a “label” in the Act) that must be posted on your property to show what your efficiency rating is; sort of like the Energy Star efficiency rating label on your refrigerator or air conditioner.
If you don’t get a high enough rating, you can’t sell. And, the EPA administrator is authorized to raise the standards every year, even above the automatic energy efficiency increases built into the Act.
The EPA administrator, appointed by the President, will run the Cap & Trade program (AKA the “American Clean Energy and Security Act of 2009″) and is authorized to make any future changes to the regulations and standards he alone determines to be in the government’s best interest. Requirements are set low initially so the bill will pass Congress; then the Administrator can set much tougher new standards every year.
This is glaringly unconstitutional, but that little fact will not deter the current runaway Senate. What we are experiencing in the era of Hope and Change is the rape of the American economy. It doesn’t seem to matter how loud we scream…all we manage to do is amuse Obama, and the hits keep coming. Disgusting. Democrats need an ass whupping on a major scale, and as I’ve said before–November cannot come soon enough to suit me.
As a follow up to my earlier post about the false information in Obama’s resume, I present you with this follow up article. Here’s an excerpt:
The White House directive was issued as part of a deal struck between the Office of the President and reporters of the mainstream media.
In exchange for being given unprecedented access to Barack Obama, reporters would promise not to report ‘certain matters’ they may discover while covering the President.
From Steve Clemons at The Washington Note:
What I have learned after discussions over the last several days with several journalists who either have regular access to the White House or are part of the White House press corps is that there is a growing sense that access is traded for positive stories — or perhaps worse, an agreement that things learned will not be reported in the near term.
What, exactly, is meant by ‘things learned?’ What information could a journalist uncover while having close access to the President that would be deemed so damaging, embarrassing, or even worse, that the White House is exhibiting a near-paranoia in making sure such information is not reported?
And more importantly, why would any true journalist who is worth his/her salt agree to such a scheme?
Clemons believes that part of the reason is that some reporters who cover the White House want to write books about Obama.
A ‘sell-out’ to the dreaded Capitalism on the part of liberals? Say it ain’t so.
The agreement between the White House and reporters is mutually beneficial. The White House gets what it wants. Any information that it considers to be negative or damaging to Obama will not be reported. The reporters also get what they want–unprecedented access to the President of the United States, which will help their careers and eventually earn them millions in book royalties.
In the meantime, what are the citizens not being told about Barack Obama?
In honor of Earth Hour, I present you with this glorious clip of George Carlin; everything I want to say to navel-gazing global warmists, he says right here:
“Environmentalists don’t give a shit about the planet; not in the abstract, they don’t…not in the abstract, they don’t! You know what they’re interested in? A clean place to live. Their own habitat. The worry that sometime in the future, they might be inconvenienced. Narrow, unenlightened self-interest doesn’t impress me. Besides, there is nothing wrong with the planet, the planet is fine. The people are fucked! Difference! Difference! The planet is fine! Compared to the people, the planet is great! It’s been here four and a half billion years…do you ever think about the arithmetic? The planet has been here four and a half billion years; we’ve been here, what– a hundred thousand? Maybe two hundred thousand, and we’ve only been engaged in heavy industry for a little over two hundred years. Two hundred years vs. four and a half billion, and we have the conceit that somehow we’re a threat, that somehow we’re gonna put in jeopardy this beautiful little blue-green ball that’s just a-floatin’ around the sun? The planet has been through a lotworse than us. The planet has been through all kinds of things worse than us. Been through earthquakes, volcanoes, plate tectonics, continental drift, solar flares, sun spots, magnetic storms, the magnetic reversal of the poles, hundred of thousands of years of bombardment by comets and asteroids and meteors, world-wide floods, tidal waves, world-wide fires, erosion, cosmic rays, recurring ice ages, and we think some plastic bags and some aluminum cans are going to make a difference? (laughs) The planet…the planet…the planet isn’t going anywhere. WE are!
Abso-freaking-lutely. “The planet is fine. The PEOPLE are fucked!” And the sad thing is, our demise likely won’t be from any form of natural disaster, but from the purile antics of self-interested, ham-fisted politicians and the stupid, mindless sheep who unquestioningly do their bidding.
“Well, a lot of those folks, your employer it’s estimated would see premiums fall by as much as 3,000 percent [sic], which means they could give you a raise.”–President Obama in Strongsville Ohio, March 15, as quoted on the White House Web site
Gee, is it just me, or is the math off on this just a bit? I mean, I’m not Hahvahd-educated and all Supah Smaht like Teh Prezident, but a 100% reduction in premiums would reduce your premiums to zero, right? So how much is the insurance company going to pay you to insure you?
Can this guy be any more ignorant than he seems to be? As Elphaba informs me, that is a scary question.
Here’s the clip, if you can stand to gaze upon the blinding stupidity:
This whole Toyota “unintended acceleration” thing reminds me of the Audi “unintended acceleration” hoax back in the 1980’s: a complete sack of wet brownies. Sub-intelligent knuckledraggers who don’t know how to drive a car are causing this “problem” as is clearly demonstrated in the video of this rigorously documented scientific experiment: WARNING: highly unsafe for work, due to the multiplicity of f-bombs. In fact, this guy curses harsher than eddiebear writes. Or possibly, maybe they’re the same guy…
This is so good, this will be the Friday Funneh, Premature Edition.
From some link on the sidebar at Ace. What, you think I do my own research for this blog?
Sometimes, all you can do is just wonder at the sheer creative stupidosity (I coined that word just for this post) of some people. Particularly when it comes to being so loony that there isn’t a sufficient word in any language for it.
