“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.”

Socialist Party presidential candidate Norman Thomas

Obama declares open-season on barred owls

Just like he did with the car-company economy when he chose winners and losers based on his personal political favorites, Obama will start killing barred owls in order to save the endangered northern spotted owl.

Just like in any thriving economy, nature thrives best when left alone. There is no system in which Obama won't meddle in order to score political points....this time with stupid conservationists who prize the spotted owl.

Just as it sucked to be one of the car dealerships that got closed because you were in political disfavor with Obama, it sucks to be a barred owl too.

Food-stamp nation

I borrowed this from my friend Ricky Cadeaux....

The food stamp program, part of the Department of Agriculture, is pleased to be distributing the greatest amount of food stamps ever.
Meanwhile, the Park Service, also part of the Department of Agriculture, asks us to "please do not feed the animals" because the animals may grow dependent and not learn to take care of themselves.

Democrats gleefully, proudly, and shamelessly conscript millions of Americans onto the welfare rolls as if lifelong dependence on government is the end goal rather than a temporary helping hand. What is wrong with these people?

TEA Party intimidation by soulless democrats

It would seem the democrats are once again afraid of the tea party's influence on elections. Otherwise why would six democrat senators sign a letter to the IRS commissioner demanding that he investigate TEA Party activities and demand answers to ridiculous questions such as......

From Biggovernment.com -- “Please identify your volunteers” or “are there board members or officers who have run or will run for office (including relatives)”?

These documents are further undermined by a letter sent to the IRS Commissioner Shulman. Signed by six Senators, it requests that the commissioner investigate 501(c)(4) groups to determine whether they are engaging in substantial campaign activity, including opposition to any candidate. Who signed this letter? Senators Schumer, Franken, Udall, Shaheen, Whitehouse, Merkley and Bennet — all Democrats.

Dozens of TEA Party organisations around the country have received intimidating letters of investigation and the cost in money and effort to answer these questions will be great. Dastardly democrats like Chuck "the schmuck" Shumer believe that if the threat of investigation doesn't intimidate the TEA Party folks, the cost of compliance will at least distract them from influencing the re-election of Obama.

Bill Clinton used to use the IRS as his personal thug squad in order to intimidate political rivals and critics from challenging him. It's a tried-and-true tactic of democrats which shows that to them, any method of winning is OK no matter how immoral or wrong. What a horrible, contemptible bunch of people democrats are!

Obama is hostile to the American economy

This cartoon, borrowed from regular reader Billy, pretty accurately sums up the problem with the Keystone Pipeline's passage. Obama detests anything to do with energy production in the US if it isn't "green". He wants gas to be painfully expensive. Expensive gas forces Americans to embrace so-called "green" energy alternatives. He predicted that energy prices would necessarily skyrocket under his administration and he was correct.

The Keystone Pipeline from Canada down to our Gulf refineries wouldn't so much affect the price at the pump as it would create thousands of jobs. It would also reduce our importation levels of middle east petroleum for refining. That's always a good thing.

Anybody who can't see Obama's hostility toward the American economy is a moron.

Obama's next "green" energy idea.....algae

Obama's plan to rescue America from a major, gas-related depression.....algae

From WashingtonExaminer -- "We’re making new investments in the development of gasoline, diesel, and jet fuel that’s actually made from a plant-like substance, algae -- you've got a bunch of algae out here," Obama said at the University of Miami today. "If we can figure out how to make energy out of that, we'll be doing alright. Believe it or not, we could replace up to 17 percent of the oil we import for transportation with this fuel that we can grow right here in America."

This is no different, and only slightly less stupid, than putting corn in our gas tanks. Dumb hippies want us to replace meat in our diets with algae and now Obama wants us to put it in our gas tanks. Like all the other green energy fantasies such as wind, solar, electric cars, wave, ethanol, etc., this technology is at least 20 years from viable marketability.

Based on this statement by Obama, no doubt algae farms will spring up, donate to Obama's campaign, and the administration will fund them with billions of taxpayer dollars only to have it disappear down the rabbit hole of uselessness.

The "drill baby, drill" fallacy

With gas prices already at record highs for this time of year and the likelihood of $5 or even $6 a gallon gas this summer, republicans are demanding that the US "drill baby, drill!", but would more domestic oil production do anything to lower prices at the pump? The answer is, no.

When Exxon/Mobile, Shell, ConocoPhillips, or any other US-owned oil company pumps oil, they sell it where they can get the highest price, that is unless republicans plan to nationalize the oil companies. In this case that's the world market. Since our meager contribution to the world pot would be tiny, the change in prices at the pump would be practically zero.

But Ed, you point out, why can't the US owned oil companies just sell their oil directly to American refineries?

Because to do that would mean even higher prices at the pump for American consumers. It costs huge amounts of money and time to pump the first drop of oil and to recover those costs means selling where they can get the highest price....the world market. In order to recover those costs would mean charging ridiculous prices at the pump here.

We should be drilling alright, but we should make the refining process and costs associated with production low enough so that oil recovered domestically could be refined domestically and not have to be dumped into the world pot first. But that won't happen.....so get used to paying high prices and stop whining about drilling for more oil, it won't help at all.

Judge Napolitans exposes the charade, gets fired

Here's the last-straw that got libertarian-leaning Judge Andrew Napolitano fired from FoxNews....

This is what I've been saying for months. The fix is in my friends. The presented struggle between democrat and republican ideology is just an illusion to convince gullible voters that we can make a difference with our votes.....we cannot!

It doesn't matter what you do, who you vote for, or who wins the election, the same people will be making policy behind the scenes in Washington regardless. I've reached the conclusion that we are useful, easily-manipulated tools that our political overlords use to cling to power.

Nothing changes in Washington, not really. The government gets bigger and more intrusive into our lives regardless of which party holds the Presidency. Judge Napolitano is right....we are duped simpletons who care more about who attended Whitney Houston's funeral than how our lives are being stolen by the paternalistic charlatans we freely elected. Our liberties, freedoms, and choices are for the most part, manufactured illusions that we accept without question like stupid children.

We are powerless against the political ologarchists. Short of emigrating to another country, all we can do is become as financially independent as possible and minimize their effects on us. But that's much easier said than done when they intentionally create for us a system that compels us to be dependent on them.

The celebritization of the news

CNN lightweight Soledad O'Brien and pompous ass Peirs Morgan were tapped to host a live news broadcast from Whitney Houston's funeral on Saturday. They entertained various celebrity twits including Jesse Jackson and Roberta Flack who bizarrely used the occasion to request "Obama fist-bumps" from the two "journalists". Predictably Soledad exclaimed, "absolutely" as she bumped Ms Flack.

Since when is any celebrity funeral worthy of an on-site, live television broadcast of a supposedly serious news show, even if nobody takes either journalist seriously? The sad, tragic story of Whitney Houston's life barely warranted coverage when she was at the top of her career, and we send anchor crews to host their shows from the street outside the funeral? She wasn't a head of state....good grief!

I realize that maybe they were just being polite to Ms Flack by returning her Obama fist bump and you wouldn't expect anything else from a couple of dim bulbs like O'Brien and Morgan, but what does it say about American political culture that it's expected that we canonize a tragic celebrity with fawning posthumous attention and somebody thinks it's appropriate to politicize the event? I doubt Ms Flack would have Obama fist-bumped a FoxNews team. Obviously she understands that CNN is pro-Obama.

What a decadent, misguided culture that exists in America today.....pathetic! 

America's political oligarchists

This is (from R to L) Ted Kennedy)D), Lindsay Graham(R), and Mel Martinez(R) off-camera, laughing it up before a very serious immigration-compromise press conference.

Over on FaceBook there's a discussion going on about how, or even if it's possible, to rid ourselves of the entrenched big-two political parties in favor of multiple parties with more specific appeal to various voter groups.

Clearly, there's not much light between democrats and republicans. Sure, they get in front of cameras and the Sunday news shows and blast each other, but at the end of the day, they meet at local bars and drink together and laugh at the stupidity and gullibility of American voters that we let them get away with what they do.

The fix is in, in American politics. It doesn't matter if the republicans or democrats control which branches of government, the same exclusive benefits and barely-legal trappings of power continue to be shared between them. And as oligarchists, they'll resist too much change to the system they've designed to benefit themselves. All the ideological party talk is designed for public and media consumption, and is mostly meaningless.

In my opinion, we are stuck with the entrenched political ruling class as our overlords. Too many Americans accept the status quo and aren't willing to attempt any real change.

Ask not voter, at whom the political ruling class laugh, for they laugh at you.

Federal school lunch mandate is an utter disaster

Thanks to Michelle Obama's unhinged obsession with mandating health, the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act got passed and is going into effect July 1. Among other things it mandates lower sugar and sodium in foods to the point of tastelessness, it bans chocolate milk unless it's skim, and all children must, MUST receive a 1/2 cup serving of fruits or vegetables whether they like it or not.

Of course with liberal elitists who think they know everything, their good intentions are what count, not the actual outcome of their idiotic, overbearing, policy dictates. Of course it's not really about the kids' health, it's about keeping the food-service unions fully funded since they bill the American taxpayer for every serving of lunchroom slop the spoon onto some kid's plate.

In Florida alone, where the program is already in effect, over $70,000 worth of fruits and vegetables have been thrown in the trash cans, yet Michelle remains steadfastly undeterred even as nationwide implementation looms.

Government Motors screws us again

Thanks to massive taxpayer bailouts, union intimidation, and extra-Constitutional political corruption in the Obama administration, Government Motors turned a $7.6Billion profit last year. You'd think the generous American people would get some of their money back, but you'd be wrong....

From FoxNews -- GM also said Thursday that its 47,500 blue-collar workers in the U.S. will get $7,000 profit-sharing checks in March. The checks are based on North American performance and are a record for the company.

Not only were the unions given the company from whom they extorted outrageously overpaid jobs, they're getting bonuses for being union thugs....well, not just for being union thugs, but also for donating millions to Obama and for block-voting for him.

If you buy a GM product, you are complicit in the outrage that is the continued existence of a badly run company that should have gone bankrupt three years ago.

Customs seizes scary hair dryers, ignores alien criminals

Our crack border protection division is hard at work protecting the US people from dangerous hair dryers, but finds it difficult to protect us from actual illegal alien criminals who waltz across the border unquestioned.

DHS secretary Janet Napolitano thinks these are dangerous enough to waste your money stopping them at the border....

She doesn't think these are dangerous enough to stop though....

What a joke our border protection department is. It brags about protecting us from scary hair dryers while letting guys like this come and go as they please.

Santorum's going to have trouble with women

This interview from 2006 is one reason Rick Santorum might have trouble getting modern women to vote for him....

"Harmful to women"? Does he mean physically or spiritually harmful? Either way, he comes off looking like a 17th Century tool who thinks every family should look like the Duggars. Don't think we won't see this interview clip played over and over the closer to the convention we get if Santorum is still standing. And if he wins the nomination, Obama and the media will have a field day clubbing Santorum with this archaic personal belief.

Egypt lurches toward extremism

As you may know, as a condition of the Camp David peace accords between Israel and Egypt brokered by Jimmy Carter, the US must every year, fork over what has grown to $1.2Billion in US taxpayer-funded aid to Egypt. That's never been a problem as long as Mubarak ruled Egypt. But now that Mubarak is gone, the Muslim Brotherhood won 50% of the recent voting and are sure to shift that country decidedly toward a more radical form of Islamism than under Mubarak. As a result, the US is threatening to withhold our aid as an incentive for Egypt's ruling authority, who ever that ends up being, to stay moderate and honor the peace accords.

In reply to our threats, the Muslim Brotherhood has warned the US that any cessation in aid would put in great jeopardy the peace agreement with Israel.

What is a meddling superpower to do? Do we stop the aid and hope it compels the citizens of Egypt to demand a moderate government that honors the Camp David accords, or do we cave to the Brotherhood's veiled extortion and keep sending the money, essentially participating in a protection racket on Israel's behalf?

Polls in Egypt indicate that around 70% of the citizens don't even want US aid any longer. Maybe we should withdraw it on those grounds.

Having said all that, if Egypt then, under the Brotherhood's direction, starts something with Israel and the whole Mideast gets entangled in a move against the "Zionist state", we cannot then go to Israel when the dust is settled and demand they give back all the land they just won like we did with Sinai which Israel won fair and square in 1967. Israel will likely own the Sinai Peninsula again, and who knows what other parts of various countries who attacked her, and I doubt she'd again relinquish that won land anyway.

To the victor go the spoils.

The Occupy drones protest at CPAC

Our feckless media would have us believe that the Occupy protests and CPAC protests should be taken seriously as legitimate voices of the oppressed, but these retards don't even know what they're protesting about? This is from TheDailyCaller via Moonbattery....

Ask any TEA Party activist to explain why he or she is marching or attending a rally or protesting something and you'll get a well-reasoned, logical defense of the Constitution and argument for limited government. I have yet to hear a single Occupy moron be able to regurgitate a single salient talking point about what they oppose or support.

These soapless idiots and union members were paid $60/day to come hang out at the CPAC conference and they can't even read their own signs.

That in a nutshell is the political left in America.....mindless, rabble-rousing drones who don't possess an original thought among the bunch and they blindly and obediently take marching orders from their union masters and civil-rights agitators.

Calling all snitches, calling all snitches

The Obama campaign is becoming more paranoid in direct proportion to their desperation about his electability. What else explains a new Obama snitch site called Truth Team? It still features the originsl paranoia site called AttackWatch, but instead of ratting out republicans for saying mean things about their messiah, it encourages self-styled Obama operatives to dispell the lies being told about him by GOP candidates for President, to undecided moderates in their lives. Here's what the site says....

Every time a baseless attack comes to light, we’ll arm you with the truth so you can spread the word.

Basically it's a propaganda site for mindless democrat drones who can't think for themselves.

Israel and Iran about to tangle?

In recent months, an Iranian nuclear scientist as well as a top Hezbollah official were killed. Iran blames Israel and they're probably right. Over the weekend, Israeli citizens associated with embassies in New Delhi and Tbilisi, Georgia were unsuccessfully targeted by bombers, thought to be Iranian.

If you consider the ramping up of violence on each side, against the backdrop of a possible nuclear Iran being in such close proximity with the "Zionist state" as they like to call Israel, you can envision nothing but trouble ahead.

In addition, Saudi Arabia is saying that if Iran completes its nuclear weapons development program, it will do the same thing to prevent Iran from establishing a nuclear hegemony in the region. The US and some others are applying pressure to the Iranian regime through boycotts and embargoes, but they won't work as long as Russia and China continue to deal with Iran.

I guess the US's role in the eventual hostilities between Iran and Israel will be determined by what kind of conflict takes place. If it's just a surgical strike on Iran's nuclear facilities, I doubt we'll do anything. But what if Iran decides to retaliate with a ground attack on Israel? Do we jump in and come to Israel's defense or let her fend for herself? I don't think Iran will attack Israel first. Ahmadinejad is posturing, using the guise of peaceful energy development, so that Israel is compelled to attack first, affording Iran with sympathy from the world community.

Anyway it plays out, the US doesn't need to get into yet another theater of conflict in the middle east. Hell, by then we'll probably be overthrowing the Syrian regime. The last thing we need to do is exactly what the neocons want us to do which is be quick to get into a fight with Iran.

Greece is perfect example of what NOT to do

Greece's parliament passed harsh austerity measures last week in a last-ditch effort to avoid total collapse. Predictably, the citizen recipients of Greece's very generous, socialist give-aways are none to happy about having to actually work now. They clash with riot police daily as in this picture.

We smug Americans watch and think those crazy Europeans, that can't happen here. It almost did happen with the Occupy crowd of soapless degenerates. This is what happens when you have generations of citizens whose lives are entirely underwritten by the government and then you try to take away that support. They riot to get their stuff back. Greece is a perfect bellwether for trouble when a welfare state nears economic collapse. Our government overlords should be paying attention.....but they aren't.

Whitney Houston was a victim

I hate to admit it but upon hearing the news yesterday of the untimely demise of Whitney Houston, I sort of shook my head and remarked, "That seems about right." Hers is another story in list of early, drug-related celebrity deaths that is long and distinguished.

Not to be making excuses for her choosing her own path, and there's no indication that drugs played a direct part in her passing, but over the last 20 years, Whitney allowed herself to be surrounded with enablers who rather than help her stay clean and sober, provided illicit drugs to her, knowing how damaging they are. And of course, Bobby Brown didn't do her any favors either.

Celebrities need to be adored, especially the diva females, and they'll allow adoring dingle berries to symbiotically hang around like cleaner fish to a shark, because it gives them the constant validation they crave. And the dingle berries will say or do anything to be kept around, even if that means providing drugs.

My guess is that her heart stopped and that damage from chronic drug use played a role, maybe not directly at this time, but over time. Whitney Houston was a victim of her own vices and a victim of the people who indulged them.

BREAKING NEWS: Now it's being reported that her body guard found her drowned in the tub and bottles of prescription medication were in the room.Heavy sedation and water don't go together.....sad.

Kim Jong-Un rumored to be dead

There's a rumor going around that North Korea's new dear leader Kim Jong-Un was assassinated yesterday. Of course, this is from the Chinese News Agency, so it's not exactly reliable.

Because North Korea is such a closed country it's hard to tell what's going on there. But one thing we do know, is that like his father before him Kim Jong-Un likes to look at things. Every few days or so, a new image is released to the media of Jong-Un looking at assorted, every-day items. He rarely does anything with them, he just looks at them. Until they stop posting pictures of him looking at things, I won't believe he's really dead.

Click on over to kimjongunlookingatthings and check out all the interesting things he likes to look at. Here's an example of Kim Jong-Un looking at some baked goods.

Jerry Falwell's famous misuse of "literally"

When he was alive, right-wing lunatic Jerry Falwell said some monumentally stupid things but this might take the cake....

"Someone must not be afraid to say, 'moral perversion is wrong.' If we do not act now, homosexuals will 'own' America! If you and I do not speak up now, this homosexual steamroller will literally crush all decent men, women, and children who get in its way ... and our nation will pay a terrible price!"

Literally Jerry? Literally? Well, it turns out that there is actually a gay steamroller and it could literally crush all decent men, women, and children who get in its way. I stand corrected.....

Gays subjugate their agenda to support The One

Obama is famously against gay-marriage, not because he cares one way or the other I suspect, but because he thinks it'll cost him electoral support among blacks and Latino's who tend to be, or at least pretend to be, fervently religious and against gay-marriage though liberal in every other way. So why is Chicago's most famous married gay couple hosting a fancy fund raiser in their home for the homophobe in chief?

Why would activist gay couples plop down tens of thousands each to glad-hand with Obama when he opposes the one issue they fight for....legal gay marriage?

Either they think they can turn him, or as obedient liberals are wont to do, they are willing to subjugate their most personal beliefs to his agenda when the two are in conflict. It's as if their convictions count except if Obama disagrees with them, then not so much. He'll get their votes anyway because he's black and democrat.

A curious, self-loathing bunch, liberals.

Obama/Bush comparison

Don't let the Obama spin machine get him elected again by blaming George Bush for the state of the union. Sure Bush had plenty to do with it, but Obama gave it many shoves toward the precipice over the last 3 years....

Whether you prefer Romney, Santorum, or a can of corned-beef hash for President, any one of the three would be superior to another Obama term.

The pernicious creep of Islam claims another victim

As the formerly great Britain careens toward oblivion under the weight of its own politically-correct insanity, roving gangs of "Asians" have been brutally attacking white kids for no apparent reason other than they are white, at least judging by the slurs that were hurled at them along with bottles, punches, and kicks to the face and head.

In case you live in a hole, "Asian" is the term by which Europeans call Arabic or Muslim people. The hostile north Africans who've colonized entire neighborhoods around London are so belligerent, even cops won't respond to calls there and spineless bureaucrats protect them as a minority class.

Any society that is unwilling to fight for itself doesn't deserve to exist and England's existence may well have an expiration date if she doesn't wake up.

How the Zebra got his stripes

How the Zebra came to have stripes has eluded scientists for all time, up until now apparently. It seems that the African blood-sucking flies that carry blood-borne illnesses among other things, are attracted to reflected sun light that is polarized in a plane that is parallel to the ground. It turns out that most warm-blooded animals have coats that reflect light this way. The Zebra's vertical stripes, however, reflect sun light polarized in a vertical plane and the flies don't like it.

In conversations with my son about why living things are the way they are, I've always told him to apply the caveman/saber-toothed tiger example to the question....or in this case the zebra/blood-sucking fly example. That is, if a genetic mutation helps the caveman not get eaten by the tiger, then it will remain in the genes of that civilization until everybody benefits from it.

Every physical characteristic every living thing has can be explained by thinking about how it makes life easier on a dangerous planet, with predators, temperature and light fluctuations, and gravity.

Frisbee's now on the banned list

When the authorities can punish you for throwing a Frisbee on the beach, the terrorists have already won in this country.

Busy-body councilmen in L.A. County passed a 37-page ordinance elevating the fine for throwing a Frisbee or football on the beach to $1,000 per offense. That's like fining somebody for having candles on their birthday cake because fire is hazardous. The utter stupidity of bureaucrats knows no bounds.

"Quick, it's a scofflaw. Somebody call the cops and have him fined..."

Olby in trouble again....heh heh

Utterly deranged moonbat Keith Olbermann is reportedly "hanging by a thread" over at Al Gore's Current TV....that nobody watches. Heh heh....to bad that thread isn't around his neck.

Current TV is supposed to be the liberal answer to FoxNews, but the abandonment of journalistic professionalism in order to shamelessly advance pernicious liberalism by MSNBC, ABC, CBS, NBC, and CNN make that a crowded market to break into.
I stumbled across a new source of news and information the other day. It's called Newsy. You should check it out and add it to your daily-stops list for staying updated on the happenings of the day.

Too good to check

This is half-witted Louisiana congressman John Fleming(R). He fell for the year-old, hilarious Onion story about Planned Parenthood building an $8Billion Abortionplex by posting a link to the satirical story on his Facebook page. Predictably, his FB "friends" mocked him by wondering how somebody so dumb managed to get elected in the first place.

See, this is what strident, unhinged fundamentalism gets you.....embarrassed. When your beliefs are so feverish that you'll fall for obvious satire as reality, without checking sources, perhaps you are unfit to rob the people of tax money in order to enrich yourself as a congressman...heh heh, what a moron.

Obama: "Super PAC's for me, but not for thee".

Ever since the SCOTUS decision on Citizens United back in 2010, President Obama has been railing against the Super-PAC's the landmark ruling allowed, calling them a "threat to democracy".

Apparently he's had a change of heart and decided that since he needs Super-PAC's to campaign on his behalf, they're actually OK. Yesterday he asked a room full of rich donors to give their money to his own Super-PAC called Priorities-USA. Obviously the media will let him have it both ways and won't even ask a question about the glaring hypocrisy. Administration officials are excusing it by saying that the President should be able to play by the same rules as everybody else, but principles are principles and Obama clearly has none.

Teachers' union leadership parties while teachers suffer

Over at the National Education Association, the NSO(National Staff Organization), which consists of union bureaucrats who exist solely by extorting dues from underpaid teachers, decided to take a 7-day Mexican cruise odyssey to celebrate just how much money they had wrung out of teachers around the country.

Bureaucrats at all levels are known for being entirely out of touch with the people whose interests they pretend to care about. Taking a week-long cruise that rank-and-file teachers are paying for, while teachers are losing jobs like everybody else, puts on display the hamfisted carelessness of thug union leadership. I hope there is video evidence of their shenanigans to be shown to teachers around the nation. Perhaps teachers will start to see how the union doesn't represent them, the union represents themselves at teachers' expense.

The coming war in the middle east

Despite many, including some readers of this blog, who think that the US and Israel are provoking Iran into a war just because we're through with Iraq and Afghanistan and we want to continue killing Muslims/Persians because we like it, here's some provocation for you from Iran.....

From WND -- The Iranian government, through a website proxy, has laid out the legal and religious justification for the destruction of Israel and the slaughter of its people.
The doctrine includes wiping out Israeli assets and Jewish people worldwide.

And lest you think World Net Daily is just a warmongering fascist site from which I'm drawing content, here is the quote from the Ayatollah himself regarding the existence of Israel.....“this corrupting material. It is a “‘jurisprudential justification” to kill all the Jews and annihilate Israel, and in that, the Islamic government of Iran must take the helm.”

That said, I am wholly against the US attacking Iran, enough already with toppling regimes in the middle east. Here's what's going to happen, Iran will wait until it's apparent that Israel and/or the US is poised to attack, then they'll invite IAEA weapons inspectors to come have a look-see, which will postpone for months any attacks. This will go on for possibly years, just like Saddam did in Iraq.

Americans are giving up on jobs

The Bureau of Labor Statistics announced yesterday that a staggering 1.2million Americans dropped out of the employment statistics just last month. That means their outlook is so bleak, they aren't even looking for work at this point. It also explains the slight drop in unemployment that Obama and the democrat media are crowing about. Even a government-school graduate knows that when the number of people looking for work drops, the unemployment rate, measured based on the number of people actually looking for a job, goes down regardless of whether any actual jobs were added.

Don't let the media and the Obama regime fool you this election year. The unemployment rate is awful, hovering around 11%, and Obama doesn't have a clue what to do about it because he's just a community agitator in a nice suit. His pretend jobs initiatives are just political payoffs from the last election that he must do reflexively if he wants their money for this election.

If the kids are our future......we're screwed

Watch these high school students attempt to answer some basic US history and geography questions....watch and weep for the future.....

I work with a lot of foreign graduate students and they've informed me that they had to learn US history and English, obviously, before they came here to study. I'll bet they can each answer most if not all of these rudimentary questions about the US and the world.

What are our kids being taught when they should be learning basic US history and world geography? Let me guess.....sex ed. and environmental activism.

Mitch Daniels sticks it to the Indiana unions

Today Gov. Mitch Daniels signed into law a bill that makes Indiana a right-to-work state. It allows any worker to opt out of union membership and coerced union dues. There has been an exodus of manufacturing jobs from rust-belt states that have coerced union membership, to right-to-work states, because unions extort ridiculous contracts agreements from employers that make the cost of doing business unacceptable.

This means that Indiana joins Wisconsin and Arizona as battle-ground states for union influence this election year. Hopefully that will spread thin the money with which unions intimidate and threaten state legislators. 23 states are now right-to-work states and when the statistics show net manufacturing job increases in these states while union states lose those same jobs, other right-to-work bills will be swiftly introduced out of sheer self preservation.

Unions are a bad and unnecessary drain on the economic health of any state. Getting rid of their influence and thuggery is a step in the direction of sound fiscal policy.

Al Sharpton embarrasses himself.....but without embarrassment

Liberals this morning are using Romney's quote about not being concerned with the very poor, entirely out of context. Romney correctly said that the very poor have plenty of safety nets but that if holes are found, he'd fix them. But that wasn't good enough for village idiot Al Sharpton....

What programs for the poor? Is he serious? There are literally hundreds of government programs to assist the poor. Everything from rent to education, to food, to transportation, to health care, you name it, if the poor would like to have it, our generous government will happily fund it with money expropriated from other Americans.

And Romney's right. The focus of economic policy in the US right now, should be directed at the middle class. The very poor have safety nets and the very rich will take care of themselves, but who's going to make sure everybody else has a fighting chance? That's what he meant and Sharpton knows it.

Without a whimper, England accepts enslavement to Sharia

Over at CreepingSharia, there's a story detailing the horrifying cases of dozens of British girls as young as 9 being forced under Sharia law, into marriages with grown, adult men.

Girls as young as nine are being forced to marry in mosques in Islington, according to the findings of a leading women’s rights group.

The Iranian and Kurdish Women’s Rights Organisation (IKWRO) has reported that at least 30 forced marriages took place in the borough in 2010, involving at least three 11-year old and two 9-year old girls.

Unless the formerly great Britain turns away from this self-destructive obeisance to Islam, hostile Muslims will establish Sharia sectors where British national law does not apply and Islamic savagery toward women can carry on unabated.

Using the mincing pederast Mohammad as their example, barbaric Muslim men believe it's OK to have sex with any age girl as long as she's his "wife" and old enough to menstruate.  

I don't understand the moribund complacency and disinterest of British citizens toward the Muslim hordes who're overtaking their country little by little.

Lady Gaga makes a bold career move

Vacuous ding-a-ling Lady Gaga, real name Stefani Germanotta, evidently senses that her tedious insanity is running a tad thin with music fans so to stay relevant, she's decided to have a baby and her only criteria for the sperm donor is that he be Italian.

Most performers suffer from an external locus of their ego. They correctly value themselves only as much as their audience values them. That's why attention starved celebrities are always having babies at the ebb of their careers. The purpose for half of all celebrity babies is to accessorize their careers to keep fans interested a little longer.

Record sales for LadyG are flagging and as any attention whore knows, when fans stop buying your crap, your relevancy has an end-date. Celebrities will do almost anything to cling to popularity, from running around without panties so the paparazzi can take pictures, to posing for Playboy, to guest spots on Lifetime movies.
