Obama Administration Gave General Electric—Parent Company of NBC--$24.9 Million in ‘Stimulus’ Grants CNSnews.com

GREEEEEEDY Republicans only want to see corporations run the.....oh, wait, this was a Democrat initiative, wasn't it?

Move along, nothing more to see here.

Second Amendment Task Force

This shop is owned by a Marine who saw an opportunity to make a little dough, support a cause, and spread the word.  For every t-shirt purchased, he donates a shirt (child appropriate) to the local authorities to assist in clothing those who cannot afford it.

True charity doesn't need the government to flourish.  It only needs honorable people to step forth and be good citizens. 

Semper Fi.

Tea Party

What I find amusing about the tea party victories in Alaska, Delaware, Florida, and Nevada (along with some other, lower profile spots) is that the media is playing it up like the voters are angry with Republicans, rather than that we're angry with government.  It's obvious that despite their arrogant "know-it-all" attitude, the major media (CNN, ABC, pMSNBC, CBS, et al) have absolutely no idea what is going on.  OR, being more cynical, know what's going on, but don't want to admit publicly that the god of government is no longer the sacred golden calf in the large majority of the population's eyes.

Truth is, you moronic talking heads, we're sick of arrogant government-types telling us what is best for us.  And that has nothing to do with party.  And you liberals who come along and ask where our voices were during the Bush administration can kiss my ass.  Look at this blog and you'll see exactly where our voices were.  We were screaming loud and long as the REPUBLICAN President Bush with the REPUBLICAN congress created Medicaid part D gift to the pharmaceutical industry and obligation that my children's children will pay for.  We fought and clawed and argued against the expansion of government and creation of the TSA, KNOWING that making these people government workers would do absolutely nothing to improve the security of our country.  Yet deficit spending continues to buy off a large number of the population.

We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America
Do you think the founding fathers really wanted the words "promote the general welfare" to be used to steal (yes, steal) tax dollars from the producers in this country and redistribute it to the non-producers?  Make no mistake, our founding fathers believed in charity and helping their fellow man, but not to the extent of doing everything for them.  The problem is that our "welfare" system has become an industry.  If you actually teach a man to fish rather than give him a fish, he'll eat for a lifetime, and some social worker will be out of a job.  Good GOD, we can't have that!

Our founding fathers wanted excellence.  They wanted people to have the freedom to pursue their dreams and achieve their highest possible position in society.  And if that person was happy with making very little money, that was fine too, as long as they were left free to do exactly that.  However, if that person chose to do that, our founding fathers didn't think that it was government's job to come in and assist this person despite their choice.  But apparently modern-day liberals are smarter than the men that created the document which founded the greatest country in history. 

Or at least, they think they are.

Stuff

I've not posted much in the way of original content lately, mostly relying on other folks to do my job for me.  This is partly because Facebook has taken over as my main venting area as well as a great area to have discussions with lots of folks, but also because I've been so amazingly irritated with various things that I can't sit down for any period of time and put my thoughts together sufficiently to get them here.  However, this is going to be an attempt to do just that:

1.  Michigan gubernatorial primary - There are those who are saying that the Michigan Right to Life is solely responsible for a candidate being chosen that is not explicitly pro-life.  I disagree.  Hoekstra and Cox split the right to life vote, opening the way for Snyder.  Additionally, I think a lot of Democrats went out and voted for Snyder thinking that he would be the weaker candidate of the three against Bernero, who pretty much had the nomination in the bag.  Those Democrats fully intend to vote for Bernero in the fall, but figured it'd be fun to f--- with the Republicans.  Had my candidate (Mike Cox) been solidly in the lead, I would have done the same, voting for Andy Dillon.  But that, of course, is the danger of having an open primary where you don't have to be registered as an R or D to get that particular ballot.  Same thing happened in 2000 when McCain won the Michigan primary after W had the nomination well in hand.  A large number of Democrats organized an effort to make Bush look bad and put McCain over the top. 
Snyder isn't my first choice, but given Bernero's slavish sucking on the union teat, he's definitely going to be better than that Lansing idiot.

2.  Immigration - several years ago, when the Bush administration was struggling (and failing) with immigration reform, I posted my opinion here on a regular basis.  It's not changed.  I support the Arizona law and believe that ALL law enforcement should have the ability to check an individual's immigration status, no matter whether they're Mexican, Cuban, Haitian, Russian, or Canadian (not that you'll be able to tell with that one, unless they ask the officer "Hey, what's this all about(pronounced a-boot)?" 
If law enforcement can give you a ticket for not wearing a seatbelt, why the hell can't they arrest you for being in the country illegally?  Seems like idiocy to oppose this.
However, I don't think that focusing on the supply is going to stop this problem.  Just like the "war on drugs" you have to focus on the supply and the demand if you truly want to address the issue (no, don't get me started on that).  Start arresting the people who hire illegal aliens.  Employers who fraudulently submit social security numbers that don't belong to their illegal employees should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.  Make it more expensive for those who hire illegals and they won't hire them any longer as it won't be worth the risk.  Perhaps you'll kill two birds with one stone and help the lower end of the employment scale, getting those lower skilled Americans some jobs.

3.  Gay Marriage -  Who the hell cares?  If two people want to get married, why the hell do I give a rats ass whether they're two women, two men, or a man and a woman.  And how the hell does that 'weaken traditional marriage'?  WTF is wrong with you morons?  Don't you think that we have a lot more immorality going on in our streets that needs to be addressed way before this sort of shit?  Oh, it's perfectly fine that my grandkids that aren't even born yet are already $40,000 in debt, thanks to the reckless spending of the government, but you want to make it a big deal that two people want to get married?  F--- off and die you busybody turd.  The government should not be sticking their noses in the bedrooms of anyone.  Ever.  I mean f---ing ever.

4.  Legalized Marijuana -  Again, who the hell cares?  I do find it ironic that many of the same people who fight against cigarette smoking in public are fighting FOR legalized marijuana, but eh, that's another discussion.  I fail to see the difference between alcohol and marijuana.  There are countless studies that show that marijuana is NOT a "gateway" drug and just as many people who move on to cocaine, crack, meth, or heroin also drink booze.  Just a waste of taxpayer dollars to arrest and incarcerate people who grow a little pot here and there or who are caught with a little here and there.  Get over it, Reefer Madness was a propaganda film.

And that's what I've got to say.....

PETE STARK: "The Federal Government can do most anything in this country"

Given the way the government has been acting the last 20 years, should this surprise anyone?

Renewable Energy in Afghanistan ?

In the dictionary under ignorant clueless bitch, there's a picture of this congresswoman.

Seriously? Most energy in the world? Who the f___ cares if they're burning jet fuel if they're defending our freedoms. Screw you, you tree-hugging idiot.

Sen. Kyl at townhall meet

Why am I not surprised? This from the "Never let a good crisis go to waste" crowd.

Nancy Piglosi

I couldn't have said it better myself.  All that "judge not, lest ye be judged" stuff aside, I have a feeling Madame Speaker will be a little warm where she ends up:

Hiatus

Hiatus.  Defined by Dictionary.com as "a break or interruption in the continuity of a work, series, action, etc."

Yeah, that pretty much describes any effort toward my blog over the last several months.

Maybe I'll continue, maybe not.  It seems my penchant for ranting has been better served on Facebook, but sometimes things need to be  more fleshed out and analyzed.  That sort of thing takes more than the little box on FB and as such, I'll likely continue here...at least for a while.


So, if you're still reading, thanks.  I'm still here.

Shameful

In the dark of the night, on the weekend, when they thought fewer would be watching, the spineless few imposed a huge tax on the many.  The gutless wonders in search of a legacy have imposed a moral penalty on those of us who are against abortion by forcing us to fund them (and don't tell me that there will be an executive order to ban them....I wipe my ass with executive orders every day, that's how worthless they are). 
The brainless masses have accepted the lie that this will not add to the deficit because that's what Nancy Pelosi and her fellow brown-shirts have told them.

Every government program in the last 100 years intended to perform these tasks has gone bankrupt.  Medicaid, Medicare, Social Security, the VA system...all of them needed (or will need, in the case of Social Security) a large infusion of funds at some point in their lives, much greater than the congress that passed them originally intended.  This will be no different

They say those who do not read history are doomed to repeat it.  I'd like to offer up my slightly different version.  Those to obfuscate history, are destined to screw up the future for you too.

God help the US now, because apparently the 70% that were opposed to the health plan weren't enough to convince their congresswimps.  Perhaps this November we'll convince them.

Smoking Nazi's

While growing up, both my parents smoked like chimneys.  I hated it, but figured that it was a good lesson for me to NEVER smoke.  It never occurred to me to become a smoking nazi and make sure that no one else would ever be exposed to smoke.

How do these do-gooder, control-freaks who want to control every aspect of our lives get the balls to tell people what they can or cannot do in their own personal space such as their cars, homes, etc?  And the ironic part is that they want to tell me I can't smoke, killing no one but myself.  But don't you dare tell the unmarried 19 year old girl that she should think hard before she has the abortion she's scheduling because she wants to go to Europe this summer, instead of lamaze.

These same people want to put graphic pictures on the packs of smokes, thinking that will deter people from smoking.  My dad has had two major heart attacks and several smaller warnings.  And ya know what?  He's still lighting up.  My mom too.

But since we're at it, let's make sure and ban french fries, and big macs, and many food products for that matter.  Should we put a picture of a big fat ass in a thong on the doors of the local McDonalds/Burger King/Wendys as a warning?Let's put warnings on car doors that show large pictures of car crashes and put warnings on home doors that shows what happens during a house fire.  Big grisly car accident photos and nasty corpses that are nothing but charred flesh.

Or maybe lets let people make their own choices and if that choice causes cancer, so be it. There's plenty of people out there who never smoked a day in their lives who also came down with lung cancer.  What happens when the boogeyman of tobacco goes away?  What will these Nazi's go after next?

Meh....

Looks like I've fixed the comments with a whole new template.  Probably time to shake things up anyway, I've had that same template forever.

But now my ads are right on top of the damn headers for the next post....

Yep, comments are broken.  I know.  Working on it.

John Murtha, dead at 77

John Murtha, unprosecuted ABSCAM participant, false accuser of Marines in Haditha, pork pursuer extraordinaire, and all around scumbag, died yesterday at 77.

He served his country well in the Marines during the Vietnam War era, but somehow lost his way after the ABSCAM scandal, yet the people of Pennsylvania continued to elect this bag of corruption year after year.

Seems the only way to get rid of some corrupt senators or congressmen is to have them die(see Ted Kennedy).  Here's hoping the swine flu makes its way through the chambers sooner rather than later.

See you in hell, Congressman.

Stupak get's Obama'd

In honor of the son of Bart Stupak, congressman from the upper penninsula of Michgan, who committed suicide, there is a scholarship for aspiring olympians at Northern Michigan University which is funded by the federal government.  While the merits of the federal government funding any scholarships can be debated in a different post, this one is dedicated to those who work in collaboration with President Barack Hussein Obama.  Stupak went along with Obama's healthcare plan, with the insistence that abortion not be covered, making life very uncomfortable for President Obama and his sycophants.

Yesterday, the budget that President Obama delivered to congress included the removal of funding for that scholarship.  Apparently it's Stupak's turn in the Obama Barrell

Chicago politics.  Ain't it grand?

In memoriam

From Redstate.com:


On this day 37 years ago, seven unelected lawyers (all male) spat on centuries of Western tradition, the plain text of the Constitution, and decades of precedent and declared that there existed in the Constitution a heretofore undiscovered right for women to kill their children in utero. In one fell swoop, one of society's burning moral questions was removed completely from the democratic process and placed in the hands of a black-robed oligarchy, jealous of protecting its own prerogative and manifestly afraid of "appearing weak" above all things; on at least one occasion it would refuse to reverse itself in order to teach the lowly population to be "tested by following" so that they might know the truth of the unelected Court above all other pedestrian concerns.

Almost four decades later, somewhere around 50 million unborn children have been victimized by the breathtaking arrogance of the Court. They committed no crimes, were afforded no due process or trials at all, and every appeal made on their behalf has fallen on deaf ears. They have been killed in the most brutal ways imaginable, unceremoniously sucked from their mother's wombs, and carelessly discarded without even the dignity of an unmarked grave. Every reasonable effort to curb the abuses of the system that has produced these gruesome results has been summarily rejected by society's robed masters. And so the carnage marches on.

The truth that these children are biologically human and biologically distinct from their mothers is beyond question to anyone who believes in the most basic tenets of science. Why, then, are they declared so totally bereft of rights in our society? The fact that a woman can, with the protection of the law, kill her child on the day of its planned full-term delivery, indicates clearly that the only answer to this question is "physical location within their mother's womb." If a child is in this place, it may be killed with impunity; if it is in another, to kill it is murder. Even the more generous (but less accurate) characterization of the Court's jurisprudence as respecting "stages of development" rather than physical location provides us no more satisfactory answer. If a child can be kllled with impunity because it has not reached 24 weeks' gestational age, why may it not be killed because it hasn't reached its first birthday? Or puberty? Logic and reason provide no defensible answer to these questions, because in the legalized abortion regime, logic and reason - like science and law - have been sacrificed on the altar of self-aggrandizement and convenience at any cost.

The evil Roe v. Wade has wrought has cheapened and weakened our society. It has decimated minority population growth, especially among African-Americans. It has caused us to devalue the handicapped and less fortunate, as mothers who carry these precious children to full term are now somehow thought to be less responsible for the decision. The damage to the fabric of the family itself - the most basic building block of our society - has been incalculable.

And so today, hundreds of thousands of Americans will march on our nation's capital to continue our peaceful protest against this policy which has been foisted upon us. And though most of us cannot be physically present with them, we stand with them in solidarity and in spirit, saying a silent prayer together on behalf of the fallen, and in the hope that the guilt of the blood spilt on our land might somehow be purged.

At RedState, we stand in solidarity with them. The question does not and should not divide us along conservative/libertarian lines, for even the most libertarian among us must recognize the right of the state to prevent and punish the killing of innocent humans. And we renew our pledge today and every day to work to support candidates who will do everything in their power to someday bring about the day when Roe v. Wade joins Scott v. Sandford as an aberrant footnote to our nation's great history.

On this day, we remember the nameless and the forgotten, and we lament our inability to even grasp the sorrow or the extent of their loss. Requiescat in pace.

File under D for 'Duh'

Congressman Chris Van Hollen - D, in an attempt to help Martha Coakley in MA win what the Dimwitocrats are calling "Ted Kennedy's Seat" (In actuality it's one of two Senate seats that belong to the people of Massachusetts you twits) said:  "Why would you hand the keys to the car back to the same guys whose policies drove the economy into the ditch and then walked away from the scene of the accident?"

Now this wouldn't be so funny if it weren't Ted Kennedy's seat.

Go ahead...think about it...I'll give you a second.....

Yeah..uh huh.
