Obama withdrawal strategy not one presented by military.

Also, F&F this morning said that military requested 40K troops to attack a particular network in the surge. They didn’t get 40K they got 30K so that network wasn’t attacked. Guess who attacked the hotel yesterday.  If you said the network that wasn’t attacked you would be correct.

As I said way back when he sent the 30K after dragging his heals like a drunk at last call, pull them all out now. He is killing more Americans and allies troops for covering his political ass.

Another futile attempt to look good with smoke and mirrors

Hahahahaha. Cut Congressional salary, gee look how good we are. Were are your friend, reelect us some more. I hope all the folks are on to this exercise in stupidity. Want to really cut some of the budget associated with Congress? Then get rid of the golden perks, get rid of about half of their staff, and totally eliminate travel budget. There is no reason for congressional members to travel. Last year the operating budget for congress was $5.42B.  That was also the yer they could only cut the “proposed” budget by $30M. MFM where are you? Why does it take a Moron to publish this?

Is 2012 truly coming IAW the Mayan predictions?

A leading watchdog group (CREW) is touting new evidence of alleged ethics violations by Rep. Laura Richardson (D-Calif.) and calling for a criminal investigation.

CREW has been long known as a Democrat front group at the same time they have a tax exempt 501(3c) classification.  That means they have to give the appearance of non-partisanship on occasion. So what do they do?

They call for a Democrat already under investigation by the ethics committee to be turned over for criminal investigation. A Democrat who is invulnerable to prosecution or any kind of meaningful punishment for corruption because she is shielded by the densest material on earth; blackdemocratium.

Thought killing that ethanol tax credit was done right?

Not so fast it is still in the Senate. Yeah the Republicans there are going to take it in the form of another bag of magic beans and spend the money for tax credits on other shit like wood chip that is frakin’ worthless.

Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) said Tuesday that she had reached an agreement with Sens. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) and John Thune (R-S.D.), although the lawmakers say there is not yet a final deal.

How about this Headline from the Hill

GOP bashes EPA over $100M in foreign anti-pollution grants

House Republicans launched a fresh attack on the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) this week, blasting Administrator Lisa Jackson for setting aside millions of dollars in grants to foreign countries aimed at reducing global pollution.

Republicans on the House Energy and Commerce Committee released a report Monday night detailing what they say is nearly $100 million in “foreign handouts” to countries like China, Thailand and Indonesia to support various environmental programs over the last decade.

Congress couldn’t cut but 30M from last year’s budget proposal (that actually spent more money) but we can send 100M to China for “green” shit. 100M we don’t have. You can’t even promulgate the standard lie that this is “stimulus”.

But the thing here is not that all of that shit is going on, it is that “the GOP” is bashing them.  Why isn’t this news organization, and every other damn on in the country, bashing them?

Why the hell is the MFM NOT doing their GD job?  Does commie George Soros own every media organization in the country? Stupid question I know.

23 In the headlines, there is a piece linked that purports to show that Chris Wallace is stupid because he is the only one who called Michelle Bachmann a "flake."  The problem with the piece is that they only looked for that one word.  Not any of the synonyms that people may have used.  While Wallace's may have been the only person to choose those words, we shouldn't dismiss him as being way off base.

Proposed Medicare "Fix"

This is supposed to be a compromise (more beans) between Republicans and Democrats (from local paper but haven’t seen it in national papers yet).

WASHINGTON — A bipartisan team of senators aims to raise the Medicare retirement age to 67 and require the wealthy to pay more for their care as part of the White House-congressional effort to dramatically reduce federal deficits.

The plan, authored by Sens. Joseph Lieberman, I-Conn., and Tom Coburn, R-Okla., would save an estimated $600 billion in the cost of Medicare, the government’s health care program for the elderly and some disabled. While the plan is expected to meet strong resistance, some of its elements could be incorporated into a bipartisan deal.

This is the exact kind of shit “fix” that I used to get into arguments with Monty on some of his doom threads. They did this kind of shit twice already with Medicare and SS and every damn time they did it because Congress REFUSED to reduce spending they spent the “fix” and the system stays broke. Not only did the not reduce spending, they damn INCREASED it because this was in effect, a tax increase and it supposedly gave them more revenue to spend (but as we know only for a short period of time).

Folks do not listen to the appeasers on the squishy bench. The ONLY way to “fix” this shit is to cut spending.

25 I caught the re-run of the george stupinopolis interview with Bachman. Man, how did she sit through that shit without without popping a vein? Gotta give her props for holding it in but I'll bet she had some choice words after the cameras went off. My guess is that she could beat the living crap out of little geore in a cage match or spelling bee.

Basically she said she has not decided yet (which is what both Ace and I said) and she said she chided Bristol because things that are said on the boat are supposed to stay on the boat.

Bristol said she was quoted "out of context" and Fox denied that.

I'll try to find a print write up on it. Above was best remembering from the couch discussion.

Who cares?  They're ugly.  Though the quote did say "things" so I'm assuming people are not necessarily the main focus.  There are plenty enough unshapely things out there to shun.  Take, for example, the "Smart Car."  Now THAT'S an unshapely thing the wrongness of which is exceedingly great.  Or, almost every public building built in the 1950's.

Dickhole, v.

1.       To make a deal which seems beneficial to both parties.  Without changing any of the language, of the deal, re-arrange ancillary components to create a far better position for one party than the other.

2.      To “stick it” to someone without making it look like you’re the bad guy.

Ex: Obama invited Hillary to be his Sec State, which is a prestigious position with great influence.  It also removes her from the position of being his adversary since they are working closely together.  It’s a win-win.

Subsequently, Obama appoints “special envoys” to every trouble spot in the world.  Every foreign policy victory opportunity that might go to enhancing Hillary’s reputation and resume will now go to someone else instead. 

Obama dickholed her.

LOL.... I was just watching videos on The Onion and there was an ad for "The Fiat 500 Experience" and I thought it was another Onion joke.

Apparently, that's the actual ad campaign for the Fiat 500.

Let me repeat: Fiat is affirmatively advertising the Fiat 500, instead of locking it in that little closet under the stairs when company comes over, so that it doesn't embarass them.

My gut tells me they're using American taxpayer dollars to do it, subsequent to the shotgun wedding of Fiat and Chrysler.

Third update on the Columbia Wilding

Although the Columbia police have filed 2nd degree lynching charges against some of these “yoots” in my first post I warned that they would attack everything but the problem itself. That is the standard modus operandi of city government when it gets larger than 30K.

Here we go. “Curfew” in the 5-points area (and only temporary).

Also note this little gem from the Columbia Police chief:

The case is also stoking racial tensions in the city. Strange is white, and all of his attackers are black. Although Scott called the attack heinous, he said the race of the victim didn't matter to the attackers.

Imagine that same statement reversed. A mob of white “yoots” attacked a single black youth severely injuring him and a white police chief says it wasn’t race related.

24/7 100 pt headlines about “South Carolina Burning”, every race monger in the country would be in Columbia, and the FBI would have a swat team in the State House.

I want to see some 25 year sentences for these “yoots”.

Fine.  Doug Ross only searched for the word that Chris Wallace specifically said people were using.  And people were not using it.

And he is way off base.  Way, way off base.  You know who is a flake?  Mitt Romney's a flake.  Ron Paul is a flake.  Herman Cain is somewhat flaky.  Jon Huntsman is like unto a bowl of Frosted Flakes.  Tim Pawlenty looks like a flaky hobo type.  There are a ton of flakes in the GOP field, and Michele is not one of them.

Furthermore, it's not necessarily the exact question that shows Wallace is "way off base" (except that it is, of course).  Why in the world would he ask a question with that smug, snarky, belittling tone?  What did he have to gain?  This is what he had to gain:  He attempted to gain legitimacy for journalists to ask loaded attack questions of our candidates.  He attempted to gain the intellectual high ground, from which the MFM can gleefully snipe down at our candidates and blow them full of holes.

This was a Charlie Gibson looking-down-his-nose-through-his-spectacles moment.  Chris Wallace wants to be known around the cucumber sandwich eating garden parties as the guy who shot Liberty Valance.  Michele is a goddamned honest to God threat to the GOP establishment, and you're going to see elitists from every clique in both parties going for her throat at every opportunity.

Michele realized this, and that's why it took her a few days to accept his lame apology.  That was her signal to the rest of the gutless pit Yorkies inside the Beltway that she's on to them, and she's only going to play nice as long as they do.

They're not going to Palin her and they're not going to Bork her.  And that's got to be her very first mission.  Before they will be willing to report on her seriously, they're going to have to take her seriously.  If she'd laughed off the "are you still a pedophile?" question, the press would immediately know they had an easy mark, just like every goddamned national Republican figure is an easy mark.

Where did we start here? Oh, yeah. Iron Balls McGinty, In my opinion, you're being just a little too picayune in your criticism of my criticism of Chris Wallace.

He tried to dickhole her, and she wouldn't stay put for it.

That poor white kid, it was his fault for gettign attacked. See the yoots were looking for other poor black kids to attack, and since it was late, and he was running, they just assumed he was a black kid and went after him. It just so happens that he was white. NOT their intended target at all.

56 Yesterday, old news, apologies. But it really sucks that the police incriminate a Military Cadet suffering from a concussion as unreliable regarding what he knows of the attack on himself, on security video, they nipping King's career in the bud.

US Military Academy Cadet Richard King, 23, was assaulted and slammed into the pavement, suffering a concussion at the Bush International Airport, Houston.

King's lawyer has said his client consumed "a few" drinks on the flight from New York to Houston, but was not impaired. After posing for photos with Patti LaBelle proving their prejudicial investigation, Police reported King smelled of alcohol and could not provide details of the incident.

Am I surprised that Obama lied about the military's recommendations for Afghanistan?  No!  The real surprise is who asked the question that revealed this.  Our favorite Senator from S.C., the lovely, Lindsey Graham.  Folks, let's give it up for Miss S.C., winner of this year's blind squirrel/nut award!

In response to questioning from Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC), Allen testified that Obama’s decision on the pace and size of Afghanistan withdrawals was “a more aggressive option than that which was presented.”

Graham pressed him. “My question is: Was that a option?”

Allen: “It was not.”

Allen’s claim, which came under oath, contradicts the line the White House had been providing reporters over the past week—that Obama simply chose one option among several presented by General David Petraeus. In a conference call last Wednesday, June 22, a reporter asked senior Obama administration officials about those options. “Did General Petraeus specifically endorse this plan, or was it one of the options that General Petraeus gave to the president?”

The senior administration official twice claimed that the Obama decision was within the range of options the military presented to Obama.

71 Paula Deen's hens are "rescue chickens" that were used to detect West Nile Virus.  Some of them had their beaks removed (!!).  Her spokesperson said she loves them and holds them in her lap like babies.

I don't understand.  You can have egg-laying hens in the city but the county wants to crack down on people who have large lots (and Paula has a huge new place on the Wilmington River).

Who keeps dogs like that around their own kids, let alone lets them get loose to attack other children?  A nurse who helped rescue the poor little boy said she removed her shirt to hold the child's face together.  Two brave men are credited with beating the dog who had the boy's face in its jaws with a brick until it let him go.  Then they shot it.  The second dog had other kids trapped at the top of a jungle gym and ran.

87 Pit bulls as a breed are dangerous.  Full stop.  They need to be culled, and drastically, and the owners of any pit bull (or for that manner, and dog) that attacks a person without provocation should be covered in gravy and  put in a cage with a dozen of that breed.

Sure, people will say it's how the dogs are raised.  But in 99% of these maulings, the owners stand there dumbfounded, exclaiming that it's a family pet that has never done this before.  Just like guns accidentally go off (when handled improperly.)

Bah - of course the owners say they're dumbfounded.  It's a lie to escape responsibility.  These things are very rarely out-of-the-blue.  Once pit bulls became the new animal status symbol of the ghetto, a gimick to say "I'm dangerous - look out" their doom as a breed was assured.  Inbreeding in rapant, making most of them genetic basket cases.  The idiots in the slums have no idea how to manage the breeding, and many are happy to have them go crazy because they want a violent dog.

When I was a kid we had a pit bull (back in the 70's).  It was an ideal dog.  You could train 'em to be mean, but the same can be said of Rots or Dobermans or whatever other dog you've got.

The Arlington story makes me physically ill.   Add to that this story from the Houston Chronicle that had me spitting nails yesterday like a MacGyverized machine gun, and I think I'm finally going to get that ulcer that's been threatening me since college.

Houston VA accused of censoring religious speech

Local veterans and volunteer groups accuse Department of Veterans Affairs officials of censoring religious speech — including the word "God" - at Houston National Cemetery.

In one example cited in documents filed this week in federal court, cemetery director Arleen Ocasio reportedly told volunteers with the National Memorial Ladies that they had to stop telling families "God bless you" at funerals and that they had to remove the words "God bless" from condolence cards.

"It's just unfair that somebody would ask us to take God out of our vocabulary," said Cheryl Whitfield, founder of Houston National Memorial Ladies.

"I could've kept my mouth shut and let things happen, but when it comes to standing up for your belief in God and giving comfort to the families, I don't want to regret not saying anything," Whitfield said. "We all had to stand up for what we believe in..."

And THIS is what made my blood boil.

According to court documents, Ocasio banned veterans organizations and volunteer groups from using certain religious words such as "God" or "Jesus," censored the content of prayer and forbade the use of religious messages in burial rituals unless the deceased's family submitted the text for prior approval.

When Tuscaloosa, Alabama, begins rebuilding more than 7,200 homes and businesses leveled by an April 27 tornado, it may find itself missing a workforce capable of putting the city together again.

That’s what Ever Duarte, head of the city’s Hispanic soccer league, said after losing a third of his teams in a week. Tuscaloosa County’s 6,000-strong Hispanic population --including roofers, Sheetrockers, concrete pourers, framers, landscapers and laborers -- is disappearing, he said, before a law cracking down on illegal immigrants takes effect.

“They’re leaving now, right now,” Duarte, 36, said during a pause in a pick-up soccer game last week in a neighborhood gym. “I know people who are packing up tonight. They don’t want to wait to see what happens. It started last week. Our league had 12 teams the week before that. Last week, it was eight.”

 

How about that? Pass a law and it already has positive effects.

We remember last week's Drudge link posting Obama's combat fatality rate (over one a day killed) in Afghanistan @ 6X the higher percentage rate against the GWB average loss of troops in combat. "Other" death statistics from our own troops being sabotaged by "allies" are extraordinarily high, as well.

Even with these deaths aside, the obvious reasons for impeachment mount, demanding immediate address ... moron crickets.

Perhaps Rand Paul will perform the formalities initiating Obama's impeachment on behalf of America, and on behalf of the indifferent Republican Leadership, given that Michele Bachmann is busy campaigning for potus to remove Obama via "people's voice" that Congress eschews, elections.

"America won't endure another four years of Obama." ?! Duh. Why endure the remainder of this Obama term without dragging him through impeachment? Why allow Obama's re-election campaign to avoid his Impeachment? If the Republican Leadership really wanted to oust Obama, they'd be pushing him through the impeachment process. That they aren't proves what they represent, "shared values" as Pelosi put it.

Constitutional Conservatism. I am appalled by the deceit from the "trustworthy" leaders of Republican conservatism when they whine about Alinsky tactics played against either Palin or Bachmann, only to finish their legitimate gripe by playing Alinsky themselves, attacking the Libertarian Republicans as if "anarchists". Congressman Ron Paul is no anarchist. His agenda is the application of our Constitutional Governance which is NOT anarchy. His books on the economy promote the Austrian School of Economics, nothing to do with anarchy. The stupidity of the establishment's smear makes a liar of Mark Levin who knows better, but is betting that people don't bother researching after the impression left by his WTF false charge and impact on public opinion. Since Levin considers himself the champion of truth, he must stay on record when assaulting an opponent. You can't select when to be truthful and when to deceive and call yourself honest. Don't propagandize fabrications and insist you're "the great one" unless you want to be compared to authoritarian propagandists. The applicable excuse/reason "Because I Could" would place Levin with Clinton, determining on behalf of the revisionist world what is means.  pff

And for the record, except when he lies, I like and admire Mark Levin. It's one thing to be mistaken, and another to knowingly deceive. No one's perfect.

What irks me is that his concussion would impair his ability to respond with details. If I were accosted and assaulted, or were in an accident and suffering a concussion, it would be wrong for the police to discredit what I can remember because questions regarding what I can't remember would remain unanswered. And were the police to play favoritism against me because they are fans of those who attacked me, or collided with me in traffic, that would make getting over my concussion more painful and difficult, adding unnecessary stress.

That King chose to drink liberally on flight, and to make contact with strangers rather than keep to himself in travel, and that he's already 23 and still carrying on perpetual juvenile behavior proves his poor value as a person to be entrusted with authority. Yes, that's a given.

John Lennon was a closet Republican at the time of his death according to his last assistant

“He’d met Reagan back, I think, in the 70s at some sporting event… Reagan was the guy who had ordered the National Guard, I believe, to go after the young (peace) demonstrators in Berkeley, so I think that John maybe forgot about that… He did express support for Reagan, which shocked me.

“I also saw John embark in some really brutal arguments with my uncle, who’s an old-time communist… He enjoyed really provoking my uncle… Maybe he was being provocative… but it was pretty obvious to me he had moved away from his earlier radicalism.

Brave, indeed.

132 I wonder if juries in MA ever heard of jury nullification? If I am not mistaken that was where it was originally born back when MA did actually believe in freedom.

Considering most Mass residents are illiterate losers (I may be exaggerating just a tad) I would be surprised if they could even spell "nullification," let alone define it.

Alec Baldwin shooting his stupid mouth off again by telling his Twitter followers to beware of Bachmann.

"Anyone that inarticulate and full of shit who is raising money that fast... is beholden to some mighty thuggish interests."

 

Yet another telling endorsement for Bachmann.  Love it.

Those who sit on juries certainly are.  The first time I got picked to sit on a jury right after I turned 18, I didn't weasel out of it, and I spent about five days with the 11 dumbest people I had ever met.

135 That is just so f'n sad. I love dogs but I wouldn't trust a pit at all. I understand that dogs are what their owners make them but pits just have that killer instinct and are brutal. and it's always someone elses kid. Damn. So sad.

I used to have a pit bull. Sweetest, most even-tempered dog I ever owned. Eager to please and patient to no end. I trusted her 100% around my (then) 2 year old son. The only time she ever snapped at him was when he was literally jumping up and down on her on the couch. And then, she only gave him a warning snap in the air, she came no where near actually biting him.

Anyone who ever met that do, loved her, even if they weren't a dog person. Damn, I miss that dog.

A good non-controversial quote to start the day, I always say.

Eh, I like the controversial ones.  Especially about religion.  It's what makes the world go 'round.

“He was a very different person back in 1979 and 80 than he’d been when he wrote Imagine. By 1979 he looked back on that guy and was embarrassed by that guy’s naivete.”

How 'bout that.

According to a PBS broadcast documentary, The Beatles made a revolutionary impact on the youth in the USSR. Though VIP treatment is the same wherever, visiting there should put communism in perspective, given any reflection.

Well, from imagine to realism, facing the blows as they came. Lennon certainly played an interesting figure, as did Harrison. RIP, RIP

I've heard that before about Lennon. I don't remember who said it about him, but what he said was, in public John was a big radical leftist but privately he was a real Tory.

140 Regarding the "kill whitey" mobs in Peoria and elsewhere, it occurs to me that this is one more reason why the Right needs to form street armies, as were common in 1930's Europe.  These ethnic mobs are tailor-made to be pressed into service by the Left.  The police already fear them, they'll probalby work for peanuts, and they will relish the opportunity to do violence to their betters.  It's only a matter of time (if it's not already happening) before the libtards are sending their hit squads after our kind.  The police will do NOTHING.  We have to accept that now.  And 1 man with a gun is not enough to fend off a mob, many of whom may also be armed.  Only organized defensive groups can protect our interests.

141 Surprised that no one had brought up the fact that Petey from the Little Rascals was a pit bull. Pit Bulls are down the list on breeds that have the most reported dog bites. The problem is that when they do attack it's much more severe because of their strength and innate 'to the death' character. Because of this ultimate danger, it may be better to require a license for ownership instead of outlawing the breed.

U.K. Unions Plan Massive 750,000-Worker Strike for Thursday

Now, if I were a Brit, I'd be looking at all the workers abandoning their jobs for a day and say, "Okay, what of those jobs can I do?  Hmm..."  Then I'd offer my services for the day at half the price of the typical government charge.

Pits and rots seem to be the breed of choice here in Waterloo, Iowa.  I see a lot of guys, gang-wannabe's, walking them uptown.  And if they don't behave, the owners often kick them.  They raise them to be badass.  Idiots.

146 The wrong of unshapely things All things uncomely and broken, all things worn out and old,
The cry of a child by the roadway, the creak of a lumbering cart,
The heavy steps of the ploughman, splashing the wintry mould,
Are wronging your image that blossoms a rose in the deeps of my heart.

The wrong of unshapely things is a wrong too great to be told;
I hunger to build them anew and sit on a green knoll apart,
With the earth and the sky and the water, re-made, like a casket of gold
For my dreams of your image that blossoms a rose in the deeps of my heart.

W.B. Yeats, The lover tells of the rose in his heart.

Oh, I'm glad he was blasted BUT it wasn't exactly how things go down with unarmed, high value targets either.  The bigger issue is what exactly do we do with captured terrorists?  The article implies that there is a lot of asking for further instructions from the White House in regard to captured terrorists with no two situations being handled the same with the risk of some captures being set free.
