“The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.”

Exotic pets are destroying the Everglades

I've never thought that owning as pets, otherwise wild predators is a good idea. These people who have giant snakes, tigers, lions, and other assorted reptiles and carnivores as pretend domesticated pets are idiots. Besides the fact that the animal is just biding his time until the owner gives him a chance to kill him or somebody else for dinner, when they get bored with the animal, they set them loose outside to wreak havoc on the eco-system.

Burmese Pythons are thought to number in the tens of thousands in Florida's Everglades alone, where they thrive by killing and eating an alarming number of indigenous animals including the Florida panther, possum, bobcat, raccoon, and white-tailed deer.

It'll only take a few more years and most of these medium-sized mammals will be gone from the Everglades altogether and the impact of that sized loss of entire species from an ecosystem could be devastating. This is one of those instances where I think the government should outlaw the private ownership of these exotic animals as pets and punish severely those who turn them loose outside.

If you own an exotic pet, either let it eat you or kill it, but don't turn it loose where it doesn't belong.

Solar Cycle 25 might be the death of us yet

Global warming dies a merciful, if tardy, death.

With the most recent measurements, taken from 30,000 stations around Earth, showing that not only has the Earth not warmed in the last 11 years, we are entering into a solar cycle so inactive that it might be categorized as a mini-ice age.

In the graph above, look to the far right at solar cycle 25. It is predicted to be the lowest energy cycle in millenia.

Can we finally, once and for all, put mercifully to rest the absurd hoax of man-made global warming. It never was about the Earth or pollution or conservation. It's always been about micro-management and control of human activities through insidious and capricious lies.

If these predictions are correct, millions of humans will perish from the cold and loss of farmable land. Then what will the smelly-hippie environmentalists whine about? They'll be telling us to pump out more, not less, CO2 in order to save some animal species they'll tell is in peril due to the weather.

Democrats are afraid of black conservatives

I don't remember seeing this picture in my various history classes....not even during black history month do you hear that the first black senator and congressmen were republicans.

Now, I'm not naive enough to think that the GOP of the 1870's was the same as the GOP of today, but liberal teachers, textbook writers, and media trolls still omit this information. Democrats view only black democrats as authentic blacks......how could a self-respecting black person be anything else, right?

The possibility, no matter how remote, of a black kid considering the GOP as a political home is anathema to liberals because they are counted on to block-vote for democrats. A black conservative is a self-sufficient voter who recognizes that government is a hindrance to his success and rejects the implied contract between democrats and blacks by which blacks receive hand-outs in exchange for D-votes. So for democrats to continue to be elected, blacks must not be allowed to wander off the democrat plantation, even as kids, with historical stories of black republicans.

Iran won't be as easy as Iraq and Afghanistan

By stationing 15,000 combat troops in Kuwait today, the US is sending a clear message to Tehran that we are prepared for a full-on invasion and occupation of that country if that's what they want by not abandoning their nuclear weapons program.

Is this really what we want? Another protracted engagement and occupation, and this time against a well funded, well equipped, and well trained military force in Iran? I don't think they'll roll over and within days become a tattered insurgent resistance the way Iraq's army did. They're going to fight back and a lot of our guys will get killed, as will a lot of theirs.

My hope is that this is just posturing to scare Achmadinnerjacket into giving up his nuclear ambitions, but somehow I think the decision has already been made in a small, dark room in the Pentagon to attack Iran at some point. Perhaps after 9 years of middle-east war, it's become a way of life for Pentagon officials and DOD weapons contractors. And now that Iraq is essentially over and Afghanistan is winding down....at least according to Obama, they need another target. I hate to be so cynical about our military because I was in the military for 16 years, but we sure seem eager to engage Iran.

Obama and his crony socialist tool, Warren Buffet

Worry not for the 20,000 construction and oil industry jobs that were lost because of Obama's myopic obeisance to environmentalists when he denied the Keystone XL pipeline deal, for zillionaire Warren Buffet, an Obama lick spittle and crony socialist, stands to profit handsomely from the deal.....

From Moonbattery -- Warren Buffett’s Burlington Northern Santa Fe LLC is among U.S. and Canadian railroads that stand to benefit from the Obama administration’s decision to reject TransCanada Corp. (TRP)’s Keystone XL oil pipeline permit.

With modest expansion, railroads can handle all new oil produced in western Canada through 2030, according to an analysis of the Keystone proposal by the U.S. State Department.

If you don't think that Obama's stooge Buffet didn't apply pressure for the administration to have the pipeline sidelined while Buffet repositions himself to profit from it, you're a grade-A moron! Obama needs desperately to have a billionaire like Buffet on his side so he can rail against all other billionaires, using him as an example of how all rich Americans should behave. He needs him so badly that he'll harm the nation on Buffet's orders. Buffet is so old that his dementia is probably kicking in so he's not ashamed that he's being used as an Obama tool.

Gazzilionaire Buffet and Obama conspiring to screw Americans...

Nancy Pelosi is a loathsome hag!

Nancy Pelosi is a vile, loathsome, wretched hag! I struggle to think of a politician, past or present, for whom I have greater contempt. Here she is repeating her threat to expose some dark secret of Newt's if he were to win the GOP nomination.....

She's despicable! That much is unquestionable, but what is she up to? Recognizing conservatives' hatred of her, is she attacking Newt in order to rally us to support him? And is that because Obama wants to run against Newt because he's more beatable than Romney, according to them?

Or is it that she's trying to scare republican primary voters away from Newt because Obama wants to run against Romney because they think he's more beatable?

Obama makes kids fat, and Michelle criticizes them for it

It's tragically ironic that Michelle Obama's personal crusade is against childhood obesity, yet it's her husbands fervent attack on the US economy that is causing families to only be able to afford the cheapest fast food.

That's where McDonalds comes in. McDonalds profits are a good indicator of the relative health of the American economy. As people rise out of poverty, they eat more quality and expensive food and when times are bad as they are now, kids get fatter because their families can't afford anything but fast food. McDonalds profits are up like 7% from last year to record levels. You know the economy is bad when McDonalds is making that kind of money.

The authorities own your computer.....who knew?

The rapid adoption of computers into every facet of our lives has introduced some interesting legal issues. Perhaps the most important is the right to privacy and how far the authorities can go to find dirt on you....

From Wired.com -- A judge on Monday ordered a Colorado woman to decrypt her laptop computer so prosecutors can use the files against her in a criminal case.

The defendant, accused of bank fraud, had unsuccessfully argued that being forced to do so violates the Fifth Amendment’s protection against compelled self-incrimination.

For now, I'm on the side of individual privacy. I don't like the idea of the authorities being able to seize your computer to find yet undiscovered "proof" of your crimes. That means they also have access to your diary, mail, notepads, whatever medium they think has evidence that you did something wrong.

This particular civil rights slope is a tad slippery to me. The law will have to be written to be much less broad. Perhaps before they're allowed to search your personal computer, they have to possess other sourced proof of your guilt.....or something like that.

If you own an encrypted personal computer, it's probably a good idea to have a re-format trigger so that if the authorities try to force you to unlock it, you can easily destroy it with a few key strokes.

Education in the US on display

This was obviously the product of dreadful public schools in New York City.....

As funny as it is, it's still a sad commentary on the competency of the people providing education in the US, that nobody caught this and corrected it.

Violinist displays talents in an unexpected way

Regular reader David sent this in. Normally artists become enraged if anything disturbs them during a performance. This guy chooses another response.....

Ubiquitous cell phones have changed our lives, mostly for the better, but sometimes people are just stupid with them. People who inappropriately disturb others because they refuse to turn their cell phones off for 15 minutes because they're afraid they might miss a tweet, call, or text from a friend, deserve to have blows reigned down upon them with battery filled socks.

Brazil humiliates Obama, sells oil to China

President Obama got exposed this week as the most incompetent, or hostile to America depending on how you view it, President in history....and that list includes Jimmy Carter.

Late last year Obama went, hat in hand, to Brazil to beg them to sell us their 38billion barrels of off-shore oil, but the catch is they must drill for it in an environmentally responsible way. Predictably, Brazil said no thanks, and signed a deal with China.

Then last week, Canada gave us every opportunity to buy their oil, but Obama said no thanks to them too. Predictably, Canada will likely sign a deal with China. Meanwhile Iran is threatening to close the Straights of Hormuz through which 17% of the world's oil flows on tankers.

All of this, yet Obama will not allow drilling for one drop of our own domestic oil, choosing instead to wasted billions of taxpayer money on solar power boondoggles, 11 of which are in bankruptcy or soon will be.

If Obama isn't hostile to America, he's the most inept, incompetent, ideology-driven moron to ever hold high office. I don't think he's a moron. I think he's doing this on purpose to punish a country he views as evil, colonialist, and corrupt, having gotten rich off the backs of slaves and by stealing wealth and resources from poor countries.

Nothing to see here folks, move along

Let's see now....

Corrupt government bails out, and now has a huge stake in General Motors' success

Gov't Motors' stupid electric car whose sales are abysmal catches fire

Gov't Motors recalls all Chevy Volts

Same corrupt government stages "investigation" into fires

Government stops investigation of itself and declares its electric car to be safe

Am I the only one that smells something rotten?

Flaming bull - 1, man - 0

In a small village in Spain, they put a flaming ball of wax on a bulls head and then perform the running-with-the-bulls suicide ritual. Sometimes the bull wins. On this day, a man was gored and then trampled to death by the flaming bulls. I find it hard to gin up much sympathy for the guy....after all, they set the bulls on fire first.

I love when the bull wins. Good for the bull.

It's funny because it's true

One of my FB friends posted this and I laughed out loud when I read it.

With no sense of irony, Obama whines about the media

Though it was the media who hand-delivered Obama into the presidency by making uninformed voters feel dumb, uncool, or racist for not voting for him, Obama is whining now that his haughty, elitist image is largely media driven. And all without a shred of shame or acknowledgement of the irony.

He claims that because he doesn't attend a lot of DC-insider parties, the media think he's aloof and distant. The reason he doesn't attend their parties is because he and Michelle host fabulous DC insider parties at the White House every week.

And no doubt if they think it'll help him seem like a victim and more like the common man with whom he has no connection, they'll dutifully accept blame for misrepresenting The One to the masses. Anything to convince people to once again vote for a tragically inexperienced community organizer for President.

Newt Gingrich rightly eviscerated John King and the media last night

Predictably CNN's John King began the debate last night by rubbing Newt's nose in a salacious claim made by his ex-wife Marianne in a hit-piece interview designed by ABC to harm Newt as much as possible before the SC primary vote on Saturday.....

Good for Newt!

The mainstream media template for republicans is to run as much dirt on them as possible believing that voters are too dumb not to know they are being manipulated. But voters don't rely solely on the mainstream-dinosaur media for information any more. Internet-savy voters recognize a hit piece when they see one and as a result, Newt's polling numbers have gone up, not down. Heh heh, the media hate that their influence on the American political stage is at an all-time ebb.

ABC does a hit piece on Newt Gingrich

I've been saying all along that the media, DC insiders, GOP leadership, and corrupt corporate CEO's want Romney to be the GOP nominee. That way no matter who wins the election, they get to keep fleecing the American taxpayers with impunity. Now, here comes Newt Gingrich surging in the poles after his stellar performance in the SC debate this week, and ABC decides to air a hit piece on him by interviewing his resentful, second wife. I'm not saying that Marianne shouldn't be resentful and angry that Newt dumped her for Callista, just that liberal ABC is trying to steer the nomination process toward Romney any way it can by destroying any serious competition. Then when Romney's nominated, the networks surely have hit pieces ready to air on him too.

This is why cynical political observers call the mainstream media the fourth branch of government. They have incredible power to guide voter ideas about candidates and being far left liberals, they never hesitate to use it. Of course they only have that power because most Americans are brain dead when it comes to picking political leaders anyway. They vote for which ever candidate is made to look "cool" by late-night comedians and day-time talk shows, then they go back to watching the Kardashians and Jersey Shore, oblivious to the peril in which they've placed the nation.

ABC should be more responsible and professional instead of glaringly partisan. I hope the American voters see through the hit piece and vote on the issues of the day. We were told on democrat Clinton's behalf that the personal lives of politicians are off limits and none of our business, why doesn't ABC have the same policy regarding a republican?

Obama caves to stupidity again

By denying the Keystone pipeline, Pres. Obama has denied as many as 100,000 jobs to Americans and thousands more in peripheral services associated with a construction project this ambitious. There are maybe three reasons why Obama would not allow millions of barrels of oil from Canada to be transported to our Gulf refineries:

1- Stupid environmentalists, anarchists, and other assorted crazies that make up Obama's voting core reject any fossil-fuel associated endeavor on global warming grounds.

2- China warned Obama not to compete for Canada's oil. The Chinese want it badly and hold most of our debt, and therefore Obama's testicles in their tightly gripped fists.

3- Obama hasn't finished punishing America for past racial and imperial transgressions. Americans who've enjoyed relative prosperity on the backs of minorities in this and other countries deserve to suffer smartly for crimes against humanity our grandfathers committed on our behalf.

So basically there are no good reasons for not allowing the Keystone XL pipeline to go forward. Given that it'll cost America at least 100,000 jobs, this might be the most monumentally stupid, of a lot of monumentally stupid, decisions Obama has made to harm America.

Russia tries and fails to be relevant again on the world stage

As you know, the US and Israel are preparing for a military adventure in Iran, ostensibly for Israel to destroy their nuclear capability, but for the US it's more about regime change than anything. Russia, always willing to stick its finger in our eye had this comment....

From The Times of India -- MOSCOW: Russia on Wednesday warned that a military strike on Iran would be a "catastrophe" with the severest consequences which risked inflaming existing tensions between Sunni and Shiite Muslims.

"Catastrophe"? Yeah, it would be catastrophic for Iran, since the Israeli military(pictured above) doesn't mess around. The rest of the world would probably shrug and go back to watching the Kardashians and eating Cheetos off their shirts.

Unless Russia shows that it plans to defend Iran against the "imperialist aggressors" who cares what they think? For the record, I'm opposed to yet another US military adventure in Iran. Israel can handle its own business if it looks like Iran is going to cause trouble. I'm just saying that the opinion of the Russians is irrelevant. We should ignore them.

If SOPA passes, hyperpolitical bureaucrats will be running the Interwebs

SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act) sounds like a good idea upon cursory examination, but when you look at the broad language, it's a little chilling in terms of free speech.

From what I've read, though it's noble intent is to stop piracy of music and other copyrighted material, SOPA would give the federal government's Dept of Justice(Eric Holder) the right to block unapproved, off-shore sites from viewing by law-abiding Americans because there might be some copyrighted material on them. That means that sites with millions of pages of information could be blocked if one sentence of copyrighted material were found there.

I don't know about you, but I'm uncomfortable with the federal government censoring sites from me for any reason. While a good idea in theory, because the very political justice department is the enforcement arm of the Act, owners of companies who donate to that President could apply pressure to have competing sites to their own blocked, effectively shutting them down. And don't tell me that our politicians and big-money donors are above that level of corruption. Every politician has his price and every donor is capable of bribery to help his business.

Wikipedia and other sites blacked out their web page for today in protest of SOPA and you may have noticed that Google put a black box over its logo with a link to get information on the slippery slope that is SOPA.

SOPA and the Senate version of the same bill, PIPA(Protect IP Act), both enjoy bipartisan support and Obama would like nothing more than to grab some power over the Internet. There has to be a better way than to involve the feds.

Say NO to SOPA and PIPA.

Obama gets betrayed by his blue-ribbon jobs council

President Obama stacked his phony-baloney jobs council with corporate donors who he rewards with favorable business policies, but even lapdogs like these guys see the disaster looming if we don't get the economy moving. So they staged a jobs-policy mutiny that is in direct opposition to Obama's stated policies....

From FoxNews -- President Barack Obama's jobs council called on Tuesday for a corporate tax overhaul, expanded domestic drilling and new regulatory reforms.

These policy suggestions sound exactly like stump speeches by GOP candidates. The question is will Obama implement these sound policies to get the economy rolling again in order to help win the election, but in doing so infuriate his big-government liberal supporters, or will he stay the course of economic ruin in order to appease the far-left radicals who control his party and make it more likely he'll lose the election?

He's already signaled that his electoral strategy will be to blame the "do-nothing" congress, specifically the obstructionist tea-party republicans, for not allowing him to get anything done, so he'll blame congress for not implementing these policies too. Let's hope he doesn't get away with it.

Coolest big-wave surfing video ever

If you like big-wave surfing you need to watch this. Chris Bryan shot these in Tahiti with his digital, high-speed HD underwater camera. Be sure to go to full-screen mode and turn up your speakers. Who cares if your boss gets upset? When he storms out of his office to see what your watching, he'll change his mind and insist that you forward it to him. Enjoy....

The awesomeness and power of big waves never fails to impress me. And those guys surfing and falling are surely dead.

Do we live an ineptocracy?

Ineptocracy (in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) -

A system of government where the least capable of leading are elected by the least capable of achieving, and where the members of society least likely to succeed or sustain themselves, are rewarded abundantly with goods and services paid for by confiscated wealth from a diminishing number of producers.

I'm thinking, yes.

--I borrowed this from FB friend and regular TRR reader Barry.

Ron Paul supposedly has a plan-B

Ron Paul has virtually no chance to win the GOP nomination because many of his views are contrary to mainstream conservatism, particularly on foreign policy. Specifically, the GOP won't rock the Federal Reserve boat with an audit, as Paul demands, because in my view, the GOP is as guilty as the dems when it comes to its incestuous relationship with the men on the reserve board. Neither will beltway neocons limit in any way our military engagements in other countries and they probably pine for a shooting war with Iran.

That said, Paul has a plan to at least exert influence on the eventual nominee if that person becomes President. He will use his stash of delegates, won during the primaries that are not winner-take-all, as leverage to force, say Romney if he's the guy, to promise to audit the FED, eliminate HUD, Commerce, Education, and Energy departments, and limit our overseas military presence. The cost to Romney will be the considerable votes of Paul followers who'd vote Obama or maybe Gary Johnson if Paul's not happy.

The GOP response will likely be that if Paul sabotages this election for the GOP, then his son Sen. Rand Paul will be virtually black-balled from serious GOP participation in the future.

Ron Paul invokes Golden Rule foreign policy to boos in SC

The nutty South Carolina debate audience booed Ron Paul when he suggested we apply the Golden-Rule strategy to our military foreign policy....

While I don't agree that we should always stay out of every body's business around the world if we don't want them in ours, he sort of has a general point with which I do agree. Unless there is a demonstrable and pressing threat to the US or our allies, we don't need to go into, and/or bomb, foreign countries just because we think the time is ripe to bring our brand of democracy to them.

There was no demonstrable threat to the US in Iraq, Libya, or Egypt. We went into two of the three countries and yet, it's looking more and more that we'll end up with radical Islamic regimes in all three before the accounting is done. Can anybody argue that Iraq and Libya were worth the trouble, especially Iraq? The argument for the Afghanistan war is a more valid one to me because that's where the Taliban and Al Qaeda are primarily staged.

I think Ron Paul is more or less correct and after all, who doesn't know that we are ramping up for an attack on Iran? Before it's over we'll have been in Syria too, and to what end? To have created by our actions, radical Islamic nations more determined to bring harm to us than before? I don't think Israel will sit idly by waiting for the US to protect it from a perceived Iranian nuclear threat, they'll handle their business with or without our permission....we don't need to attack Iran.

This is not an endorsement of Ron Paul, just an acknowledgment that his general notion of reducing our military presence and role in the affairs of other countries is a valid one.

"Stand Your Ground" is a good law

In Palm Beach County, homicides are definitely down, but justified homicides are up as residents put into effect the "Stand Your Ground" law that passed back in 2005.

Every community should have a "stand your ground" law that specifically states that home owners have the right to defend themselves and their families from intruders. This is different from most home-invasion laws which state that you must retreat if possible. This law gives residents legal protection when they choose not to run but decide to stand and fight against crime.

I look forward to reading more stories from PBC about residents killing home intruders and the cops shrugging because the shooting was entirely justified. When citizens are armed, violent crime always goes down.

Al Gore warns world of peril if we continue to ignore him

Since man-made global warming has been exposed over and over as the ridiculous scam that it is, Al Gore has been able to fleece money from only the most abysmally stupid environmentalists. Because his personal wealth is dwindling, he's whining to Current TV's 9 viewers that global warming should be a presidential campaign issue and that we ignore it our peril....

From DailyCaller -- “It should be in the presidential campaign,” Gore said. “And it is not at present. Not a single question was asked about climate in any of the numerous, multitudinous debates that these candidates have had. And yet in the year 2011, the United States of America had more than 12 climate-related disasters that cost over a billion dollars.

Gore added that the future of civilization was “at risk” if the issue continues to be neglected.

Heh heh, what a moron. Al should go back to sexually assaulting hotel masseuses and sleeping with his friends' wives and leave the politics to those of us who live in reality.

Congressional gridlock is good for America

The feckless media report ineptitude in Washington as a bad thing, but I cheer whenever I hear that Congress has failed to pass any bills of substance....

From WashingtonTimes -- It’s official: Congress ended its least-productive year in modern history after passing 80 bills — fewer than during any other session since year-end records began being kept in 1947.

Every day that Congress fails to pass any bills is another day that we retain what's left of our eroding freedoms and liberties.

"But Ed" you whine, "things need to get done in Washington." Like what? More stimulus? More EPA regulations? More seizure of power by our government overlords? No, Congress getting nothing done is good for America. It's bad enough that our state and local governments burdened us with 40,000 new laws that took effect on 1Jan. Why do we need our federal government taking away more rights?

Pit Bull body count goes up by 1

In Texas, a one year old baby boy was killed by the family Pit Bull. The boy was staying with his maternal grandparents. It was their dog.

The Pit Bull breed accounts for far more human deaths than any other breed. Pit Bull defenders use the old adage, "there are no bad dogs, only bad owners", but that's crap. These dogs were bred for killing and all it takes is time and the right trigger and your Pit Bull will kill you or your kids too.

When are you people going to learn?

Ron Paul's looking better and better

Here's Rick Santorum attacking the Tea Party. I guess he, like most beltway republicans, perceive the Tea Party as a threat to their gravy-train political system through which all entrenched politicians enrich themselves while doing little but paying token lip service to the actual conservatives who naively voted for them....

This is a political ad by Ron Paul, so the context might be questionable, but if it's contextually accurate, Santorum doesn't stand a chance. We Tea Party people haven't gone away as the media would have you believe, we're still here.

Borrowed from Moonbattery.

Gingrich and Perry narrow the GOP field to two

I'm not a big fan of Mitt Romney as my President. I doubt seriously his dedication to actually shrinking government rather than slowing the rate of expansion and he has shown no desire to scrap the labyrinthine tax code in favor of a flat tax. Who knows to what extent he'll actually deregulate business, lower taxes, drill for oil everywhere, or rid us of the useless departments of Education, Commerce, Energy, and seriously reign in the EPA. Essentially, I think as President, he'll be George Bush v2.0.

That said, Newt Gingrich and Rick Perry are attacking Romney for participating in the capitalist process as if venture capitalization and free-market creative destruction were immoral. For their phony, populist attacks on the free-market process, not just that Romney was involved, I cannot vote for either.

Being libertarian, I cannot vote for self-styled choirboy Santorum either. That leaves me with a choice between Romney and Ron Paul. Ron Paul may still get my vote in Alabama's primary, but we'll see. The question for me is electability. Can Ron Paul appeal to enough social conservatives to beat Obama....I think not.

Solyndra screws taxpayers again

President Obama forked over a half billion dollars of tax money to the utterly failed solar company Solyndra, which in turn forked some of it over to his campaign. See this is how Washington works? Politicians give other peoples' money to friends who promise to give some of it back to them as campaign donations.

Like we saw with the bailed out banks and Fannie and Freddie, the executives are very generous to themselves and love to hand out lavish bonuses for merely showing up for work. Solyndra is totally bankrupt and of the 1100 workers they had, only 84 remain and now the executives want to award themselves $500,000 in bonuses for a job well-done.

Nobody can account for the half billion we gave them, yet they continue to shower each other with our money, and all without a peep from their benefactor, Obama.

Mainstream media make sure Obama stays dry in Marine urination scandal

Remember when Abu Ghraib happened and the media immediately wanted to know how George Bush and Dick Cheney, indeed the whole Bush cabinet, were involved? Well, now that the video of US Marines urinating on corpses of Taliban fighters has surfaced, where is the media blaming Obama and Biden? You won't see any media reporting on Obama's negligence as Commander in Chief because they'll be too busy insulating him from blame and figuring out ways to associate the Tea Party with the urination scandal.

Greece demonstrates why they are swirling down the toilet and why the US is soon to follow

In a move that sounds eerily similar to something the Obama justice department or NYC mayor Bloomberg might hatch, Greece has decided that pedophiles are disabled because of their perversion. For that disability, Greek child molesters will now be paid handsomely by taxpayers to sit at home and plot their next molestation. And we wonder how Greece got into the mess they're in.

What should outrage you is that through the International Monetary Fund, US taxpayers have contributed to this funding of pedophilia. Of the $110billion Greece received to bailout its banks, $40billion came from the IMF, and of that the US kicked in 20%. Now, unless you went to dreadful public schools you should have calculated already that 20% of $40billion is $8billion US tax dollars that went to underwrite the comfortable lifestyles of Greek pedophiles.

Is this the kind of foreign policy boondoggle the US needs to be involved in? Unfortunately, if a republican wins the presidency, none of this will change. All the candidates who're left are center-right statists who embrace the idiotic, paradoxical concept of big-government conservatism. Once again, the US taxpayers get hosed by our feckless government, regardless of party.

Obama shamelessly puts Jacob Lew on the government dole

This is Obama crony Jacob Lew. He was just chosen by Obama to head up the OMB. As with all Obama toadies, they are either theorists with no actual experience or they are members of the criminally entitled class. In 2009 Lew was an executive at CitiBank raking in $1.1million a year in salary, after which he received a $900,000 bonus from taxpayer bailout money.

Does Obama have no shame at all? That these bailout recipients received one penny in bonuses paid for entirely by money taken from taxpayers was the worst kind of crony corruption in my lifetime. That Obama continues to shower fabulous cash and prizes of taxpayer money on these criminals is almost as bad as the quality of the toupee this guy wears.

What's on Ed's reading list?

I know you're in a reading rut, what with the dime-store romance novelettes, tired vampire tales, and lame self-help pamphlets your parents put in your Christmas stocking so that you might finally get your life on track, but fret not, there's some excellent reading out there that'll both inspire and entertain you.

My friend Pat over at Belchspeak showed a couple of the books he's planning to read so I thought instead of sharing what's in my iPod as usual, I'd share what I'm reading right now.

Here's a short list, not complete, but this'll get you started:

-Against All Enemies -- Tom Clancy

-The Declaration of Independents: How Libertarian Politics Can Fix What's Wrong with America -- Nick Gillespie

-The Litigators -- John Grisham


Debbie Wasserman-Shultz couldn't think her way off a stuck escalator

Here's loathsome dingbat, DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman-Shultz trying to convince Chris Wallace that Mitt Romney is responsible for Bain Capital holdings layoffs, but President Obama isn't responsible for jobs lost by Solyndra....

I would argue that Romney is far less responsible than Obama for the respective job losses. Romney's company Bain Capital purposefully took over failing companies and created usable capital for other ventures. Those jobs were lost already.

With Solyndra, Obama infused half a billion taxpayer dollars into a company he should have known was going bankrupt soon, but fleeced the American people into believing those "green" jobs were worth the investment.

Romney's company is part of the capitalist system of "creative destruction" that is necessary for any economy to thrive. Bad capital must be gotten rid of so those resources may be allocated more efficiently elsewhere. Yes, jobs were lost, but not by Romney. Those companies were already going under. When that capital gets used somewhere else, jobs will be created. With Solyndra, jobs were lost, not one was created....plus a half billion taxpayer dollars were stolen by somebody.

Wasserman-Shultz knows better, or maybe she doesn't, but she can't figure out how to spin it to Chris so it's believable. She just comes off looking like the moron she is.

Mass. voters to replace one degenerate with another

Female interns in DC beware, another Kennedy is running for national elected office....

From NYTimes -- Joseph P. Kennedy III, a grandson of Robert F. Kennedy, announced on Thursday that he was leaving his job as a prosecutor to explore running for Congress as a Democrat in the state’s Fourth District. Mr. Kennedy, 31, said he would soon form an exploratory committee, a key step that will allow him to start raising money.

It's hard to say which of the Kennedy men is the most loathsome. Among the long and distinguished role of Kennedy offenses are rape, negligent homicide, obstruction of justice, countless DUI's, and serial philandering....and that's just Teddy's rap sheet. At 31, this kid's too young to have amassed much of a list of crimes, but he's a Kennedy, above the law, and brain-dead Mass. voters will surely elect him to replace the degenerate Barney Frank.

When the cops say "drop the gun", it's a good idea to drop the gun

I'm guessing you've heard about the 15 year old kid in Brownsville, Texas who was shot and killed by police for brandishing and refusing to put down when ordered, what turned out to be a pellet gun similar to the one pictured.

Were the police justified? I say yes. After Columbine and Va. Tech, you don't bring any kind of weapon to a school. And, when cops tell you to do something, you'd better do it or you risk getting shot.

If you point one of these at a cop, you just might get shot.

Exit question: what's a 15 year old doing still in the eighth grade? Did he get held back for being stupid?.....evidently.

GOP gives the next guy in line his turn

It looked to me last night that the establishment writing is on the wall for the GOP. It's going to be a Romney/Santorum ticket because that's what the feckless beltway media and entrenched establishment GOP want.

Both Romney and Santorum are known quantities and the media and DC republicans are comfortable with both. And by comfortable, I mean neither will rock the establishment boat too much if elected and both are mainstream republicans who can be easily manipulated and controlled by the DC elites.

So essentially if Romney/Santorum beat Obama we'll basically get another four years of Bush....nothing new, nothing game changing, nothing dramatically different about how Washington is run, just more of the same spending and lip service about low taxes, budget cuts, and of course DOMA. I'm bored already.

Meteor showers tonight

If you like visible space phenomena as I do, then you might want to check out the Quandrantid meteor shower around 2:00 eastern time on Wednesday morning. Here's the sky map of where to look.....

I assume you recognize the big and little dippers in the sky map and know how to find them in the night sky. If you do not, then what dreadful government school did you attend and/or what were your parents smoking when they should have been showing you the night sky? Enjoy!

Unemployable hippie explains "down twinkles"

NYU isn't the only school to now offer course work in the Occupy movement. Columbia will begin offering students "field work" for full credit for studying the Occupy hippies. I hope you morons who sent your kids to Columbia are happy with their "education". Here's an example of what your kids will be learning at Columbia....

And people wonder why college graduates are leaving school wholly unprepared for real life in the real world. Columbia is doing every thing it can to give an Ivy League education a bad name. But I've never been impressed with it anyway....I mean if Barack Obama and Al Gore were Ivy League, how superior could it have been?

SEAL sniper = badass

The enemy didn't stand much of a chance with Chris Kyle around....

From FoxNews -- With 255 kills, 160 of them officially confirmed by the Pentagon, the retired Navy Seal sniper is the deadliest marksman in US military history.

That's a lot of death from a distance......cool!

Obama betrays the US again

This is the AT-6 weaponized reconnaissance aircraft designed by Hawker Beechcraft of Kansas. The Obama administration has chosen to have a similar plane built by the Brazilian company Embraer. In fact, Beechcraft is suing the US government because Embraer has links to the Iranian government and is being investigated for bribery. These two things automatically disqualify companies from receiving defense contracts. Why is Obama so in love with the Brazilians.

Earlier this year, he ceded our Gulf drilling rights to the Brazilians and funneled hundreds of millions of US tax dollars to Brazil to finance their off-shore petroleum industry while hamstringing ours for phony environmental reasons. Why? Occam's razor would suggest what we've always suspected which is that Obama is hostile to US interests and would like nothing more than to see America reduced to second-world status. If you can think of any other reason to hand out a defense contract to a foreign country when there is an American company perfectly established to deliver the same product, I'd like to hear it.

Exit question: why are we reverting to WW-II airplanes for recon missions? This looks like a refurbished Spitfire or Mustang from 1941 or something. Is it because they're cheaper than jets?

Iowa's overblown electoral importance

First of all, happy new year to everybody. Now down to business.....

Just because Iowans selfishly insist on being the first primary every presidential election year, why does that make it so important? Iowa is pretty much ignored by the rest of the nation except for two months during a presidential election year. For some reason the media, and therefor the rest of the country, put a huge amount of importance on the outcome. Making or breaking a presidential campaign in a state with a human population density similar to the Serengeti seems a tad absurd, but that's just me.

Even Iowans admit that the more a candidate pays attention to them and the more advertising he does, the more likely he is to get their vote. So it's not really about policy to Iowans, it's more about stroking their massive egos like attention spoiled toddlers.

For that matter, why do we care about New Hampshire? It's a tiny non-representative state filled with weirdos, just like Iowa. I think we put way too much importance on these two petulant states' primaries.
