“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

Happy Easter!

Good: The wife cooking fried chicken and potato salad for Easter dinner

Better: Smelling an apple pie in the oven for dessert

Best: Her telling me to go down to my garage wood shop and as she put it, "do my thing" and she'll let me know if she needs my help with something

Climate change "science" gets punched in the gut by reality

 This climate scientist finally acknowledges the obvious....

"The global temperature standstill shows that climate models are diverging from observations," says David Whitehouse of the Global Warming Policy Foundation. "If we have not passed it already, we are on the threshold of global observations becoming incompatible with the consensus theory of climate change"

Or in other words, "All the global-warming we've been pretending exists in order to get huge financial grants from the Obama administration's funding apparatus is a bunch of bull-shit! We are liars and thieves. Nothing we say regarding the climate should be listened to by the American people because we've shown that we cannot be trusted to tell the truth. We say whatever keeps getting us funded and providing validation for Obama's ridiculous green-energy initiatives makes us rich so we'll lie to keep it coming" 

Well, that pretty much sums up the climate-change hogwash. If you still believe the "the science is settled" as these admitted liars tell you, then you are probably a delusional about a lot of things and you should pause to reassess all your life decisions until now.

Kim Jong-un plots world domination

Here's North Korea's clown of a leader Kim Jong-un diligently planning, not only the downfall of the United States but eventually world domination, using his state-of-the-art (circa 1959) mini-mainframe computer with a super cool, 1st generation Logitech mouse.

Apparently his current targets include Hawaii, Los Angeles, D.C., and Austin, Texas......wait, what?

I get Hawaii, it's easy to hit with a missile. I get L.A. it's the American head-quarters of decadence, indulgence, and moonbattery. And D.C. as a target is obvious, but Austin? Heh heh....go figure.

Ashley Judd has a way with words

Despite being far easier on the eyes than Mitch McConnell, Ashley Judd is still a stark-raving moonbat. Democrats are actually relieved that she decided not to run against him for the senate seat in Ky. because even they knew her campaign would become a laughing stock. We conservatives were looking forward to the campaign of a political utter novice who's used to getting by on her celebrity and looks....not to mention pictures of her on the news every night.  

But before she announced that she was not running, she had this bizarre response to the question of how she'd handle a campaign against a professional politician like McConnell. “I have been raped twice, so I think I can handle Mitch McConnell.” 

How charming.

Indians can't even get rich owning casinos.....pathetic

The Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation owns the Foxwoods Resort Casino in southeastern Connecticut, but back in 2008 when the economy took a down turn, the tribe didn't have enough money to meet its obligations to members of the tribe and they defaulted on a couple of loans. Now they are begging the federal government for bailout money to make up for casino losses.
Are you friggin' kidding me? The whole purpose of the 1988 Indian Gaming Regulatory Act was to allow federally recognized tribes to become self-sufficient. 

I'm sorry but it's been what, 500-600 years since white Europeans brought guns, liquor, and syphilis to the America's. Isn't it about time for lazy, drunk Indians to get over that and assimilate into society like all other minorities have managed to do? 

They can't even get rich with a casino for heaven's sake. That's like hitting the lottery. How inept and incompetent do you have to be fail to make money with a money-making machine? 

Greg Gutfeld nails Obama and the media

Greg Gutfeld paints liberals in ways the cut to the quick. That's why I record RedEye every night. They put a libertarian slant on the news of the day, but in a funny way.

Nike ad captures the relationship between Americans and our heroes

Here's Tiger's new Nike ad. And it's absolutely right.

If there's anything that we shallow Americans love more than a hero that crashes and burns in a lurid scandal, it's him rising like a Phoenix out of the ashes of his self-caused destruction to be the world #1 winner we loved and adored before.

We Americans will overlook any, ANY indiscretion or misjudgment as long as you come back and win for our entertainment once again.

Bloomberg tilts at gun-control windmill

New York's authoritarian moonbat mayor, Michael Bloomberg has used money seized from taxpayers to fund an antigun campaign, despite there being no recently passed antigun bills, but if it offends Bloomberg, never mind that it's a constitutional right, it must be stamped out.

Here's a screen shot from one of his ads featuring what I can only imagine is a liberal's idea of prototypical gun owner with a shotgun. Right away, I see at least 2 and possibly three things wrong with this picture. If this guy is an actual gun owner and not a dimwitted actor as I suspect, his finger should not be on the trigger, the weapon should not be pointed in the general direction of the children on the tire swing behind him, and because we can't see inside the chamber, who knows if the gun is loaded or not? It should not be unless he intends on shooting something in the immediate future.

What a pointless waste of taxpayer money!

DHS's military build-up

Why is the DHS amassing enough firepower and materiel to outfit a small nation's army? Here's what Janet Napolitano has quietly purchased for the DHS and about which the media has shown not the slightest curiosity?

-2.5Billion rounds of .40cal, hollow-point bullets
-7,000 fully automatic assault rifles
-9,000 armored personnel/combat carriers and riot control vehicles
-a $2Million contract with a training-target manufacturer who makes targets of pregnant women, children, and elderly gun owners for residential combat training
-hundreds of bullet-proof guard checkpoints with stop-and-go lights
-hired hundreds of private security guards to protect government buildings
-hundreds of sets of body armor and riot gear
-training exercises in which DHS agents armed with semi-automatic weapons check the ID's of ordinary citizens at gov't building checkpoints.

If this doesn't look like a military buildup in preparation for possibly, martial law, I don't know what does. Why won't the media demand to know what's going on? Why won't the administration hold a press conference to explain? Why in hell won't the media confront Jay Karney and keep asking him until he answers or starts crying?

Obama, the royal President

The Obama clan is yet again headed out on an international, vacation odyssey, care of taxpayers of course. The first daughters will be spending their spring breaks at a fabulous Atlantis Caribbean resort, complete with round the clock secret service protection.

Meanwhile, as Obama sanctimoniously preaches to the American taxpayers about "shared sacrifice", the white house remains closed to tours for the children of taxpayers who are footing the bill for another lavish vacation for America's imperial first family.

The arrogant entitlement of these people knows no bounds. While most American families suffer financially, wondering if they can even afford a quick trip to the beach, the Obama's happily jet to the Caribbean to spend money earned by Americans who are sitting at home this summer.

We won't know the total bill for entertaining Sasha and Malia at our expense until the FOIA's are filed, but for one week in Aspen last year, taxpayers coughed up $485,000. For 10 days in Hawaii, we paid $4million which did not include a separate, private flight for their stupid pet dog.

In America, it's better to be a rapist than a meatball thief

A housekeeper at the US Military Academy at Westpoint was questionably charged with theft after her manager caught her with a bag of frozen meatballs, apparently headed home for dinner. She faces 2 years in jail, which is more than either of the two Steubenville convicted rapists got.

Anybody besides me see anything wrong with a judicial system that is so subjective that the theft of a bag of frozen meatballs could carry a larger sentence than rape?

Debbie Wasserman-Shultz is a loathsome idiot

The loathsome Debbie Wasserman-Shultz is concerned about her staff being able to eat due to sequestration  budget cuts. The salary range of DWS staffers is $60,000-$160,000, so just how painful and humiliating must it be for her staff to dine like regular Americans? To the rescue rides perennial anti-hunger advocate, the well-fed Sally Struthers. Here's her ad pleading on behalf of the poor, put-upon staffers of DWS......

"Please, please won't you think of the staffers? For the small price of 75 Grande' Latte's at Starbucks, you can provide a single meal for a DWS staffer in the lifestyle to which they've grown accustomed. Please, won't you think of the staffers?"

The hypocrisy of liberals in a Peanuts cartoon

By posting this cartoon, I'm not making a statement about abortion one way or the other, just the hypocrisy of liberals who demand that you accept their choices for themselves, but also that you accept their choices for you.

British prefer cryptosporidium to safe, irradiated lettuce

Heh heh, just how dumb are the British? They'd rather take their chances with a cryptosporidium infection from contaminated salad than harmlessly irradiate the lettuce leaves and kill the bug, because they are too stupid to accept modern science. The irradiation process makes food more safe to eat, but like our silly, child-like hippies in America, they irrationally fear anything whose name contains the following sequence of letters..."r-a-d-i-a-t-i-o-n", no matter how safe it makes our food. 

If you are a dumb hippie, pay attention; irradiated food is not exposed to any, ANY radioactive materials, just the naturally occurring waves we are exposed to every day as part of the normal wave spectrum.....gamma, X-rays, and accelerated electrons. The food doesn't retain any of this irradiation, but the pathogens are all killed. 

Now quit yer whining and have a salad.

GOP fractured over gay marriage?

There is a schism brewing within the GOP over the gay marriage issue. According to Huck, evangelicals, a significant component of the base, will bolt if the party accepts gay marriage, but polls show a plurality of Americans either support gays marrying or don't care about it one way or the other. Conversely, young otherwise conservative voters may bolt if the party clings to traditionalism. That's a problem for the GOP when national elections come around.

I predict the GOP will stick with "no gay marriage" positions, at least for the next few elections, therefore I welcome all the disgruntled, young conservatives into the libertarian fold where arbitrary moral judgments have no place in the political process.

If you are fiscally conservative, believe in small limited government and low taxes, and believe that people should be free to pursue happiness how ever they like, no matter how offensive it is to certain other people, as long as they don't break the law, hurt themselves, others, or impede anyone else's pursuit of happiness, then you might be a libertarian.

Eco-kooks threaten protests over Keystone....nation shrugs

Some flaky environmental group called CREDO is threatening a demonstration against Obama if he abandons them and his pledge to deny construction of the vital Keystone Pipeline. Canada has been begging the US to build the pipeline to send billions of gallons of petroleum down to our refineries in Louisiana. But so far, Obama has refused because he's a slave to the nutty environmentalists and his idiotic commitments to nonexistent green energy.

They claim they have 50,000 smelly moonbats willing to be arrested during the demonstration. Heh heh, I seriously doubt if they'll get 1,000 to show up. Still, Obama stated recently that he would likely not even make a decision on the pipeline this year. That sends all that oil to China, who's ready to purchase it with our money, so they can go ahead an pass the US as the most productive nation in the world by 2016, which they're on schedule to do. Meanwhile, we're hamstrung by our moron of a President, the regulation-obsessed democrats, and hippie environmentalists, all of whom hate the very existence of a fossil-fuel based economy. Idiots, I swear!

For the news media, black = virtuous and noble, white = evil and callous

Two urban(black) youths shoot a 13 month old white baby in the face during a street robbery in Brunswick, Georgia, and you'd be hard pressed to find a picture of the perps anywhere. There's one out there of the oldest(shown above), but most news stories do not mention the race of the murderers, just that they are teens.

I'd like to know where Pres. Obama is to say that if he had a son he'd look like DeMarquis Elkins?
Where is Eric Holder to prosecute these thugs for hate crimes and prosecute the family for their unlawful gun possession like he would if they were white?
Where are Rev's Sharpton and Jackson to hold a vigil for the dead baby and publish personal address data about the two murderers so citizens can terrorize their families like they did Zimmerman after he killed the thug Saint Skittles?

Black youths being cold-blooded killers doesn't fit the media template for crime reporting. Blacks are only reported as being virtuous, noble, and entitled to understandable retribution against whites. Only when the murderer is a crazed white loner do they gleefully report on the race.

Friday tunes

I've been getting into some Neon Trees lately. This is their single "Animal". Oh, and did I mention that I dig chick drummers?


Rory McElroy ditches Bay Hill.....he's weak

The Bay Hill Invitational hosted by Arnold Palmer started yesterday. This is Palmer's signature tournament and out of respect, pretty much everybody plays, as they should.

World #2 Tiger is playing, but world #1 Rory McElroy is skipping it, claiming he has to have his wisdom teeth out. He's been playing like crap lately with a new set of clubs so he's probably at home trying to find his game in time for the Master's in two weeks.

I'll remind Rory that Tiger played and won a golf tournament two years ago with a broken leg. Professionals play in important tournaments with pain and a sore tooth doesn't count. Rory isn't quite ready to be the face of golf. I predict Tiger will be #1 soon enough anyway.

Why stand when you can sit on your ass?

This pic has been floating around the interwebs. It's rumored to be a welfare, or other public assistance, office. The hand-out class can't be bothered to stand in line for other peoples' money, so they line their flip-flops up and sit on their asses playing video games on their $600 iPhones no doubt.

As regular reader David remarked, "What a great country!"

John Kerry beclowns self with inanity

The U.S. Minister of Philosophy John Kerry was addressing the imaginary menace of climate change when he offered this sage observation, and with a straight face too.....

 "we call it Earth, but it could well have been called Ocean because three-quarters of it is ocean."

It's a good thing for Kerry that he's got money and an inexplicable appeal to rich widows who he serially beds for personal gain, because his brains wouldn't have gotten him very far.

Ipswich Middle School disregards the achievers so the failures don't get hurt feelings

Ipswich Middle School in Mass. is cancelling Academic Honors Night because some other kids who tried hard but were still too dumb to make A's, would get their feelings hurt by being excluded. So if everybody can't get a prize, then nobody can have a prize? Idiots!

I remember when my son was like 7 and we got a stupid baseball trophy for just fielding a rec. team(our record was maybe 5-9). He and half the other kids looked around like, "What the hell is this for? We were terrible." And the trophy meant nothing to him because it was given in recognition of nothing. 

It's a harsh reality, but failure, shame, and exclusion are terrific motivators to succeed in the future.

Single-payer is the end goal of Obamacare

For the truly imbecilic, let me go over what the actual purpose of Obamacare is, and it's not portability or affordability as liberals have lied to you that it is. It is about rigging the system so that eventually the US ends up in a miserable, single-payer system of government-run healthcare.......

By Jim Meyers over at Newsmax -- An exhaustive study by three congressional committees delivers startling news about the dire effects of Obamacare: President Barack Obama’s signature legislation could increase health insurance premiums by over 200 percent and render insurance coverage unaffordable for millions of Americans.

We're already seeing the effects, but here's how it is intended to work, but that they won't admit to:

Through massive regulations and mandates in the 2000 page Obamacare bill, the government forces private insurance premiums as high as possible so that employers and individuals cannot afford them. One by one, employers will stop providing healthcare insurance to employees as part of the benefits package. They'll go out of business if they continue, so what choice to they have? As companies and individuals stop paying for private insurance, two things will happen that Obama loves.....millions of Americans will be forced onto the Medicaid program and private insurance companies will go out of business altogether because of a dwindling customer base. 

Once the insurance companies go out of business, we'll have no choice but to be a nation completely on government healthcare(Medicaid).

Obama keeps saying, "Oh, you can keep your private insurance if you want." knowing that you won't be able to afford it. And when the insurance industry collapses into bankruptcy, he can laugh and say that the free market failed at providing affordable care. 

He, Pelosi, and Reid are despicable, lying sacks of shit. They know exactly what they are doing. And that is intentionally destroying the private insurance industry in order to get to single-payer with the federal government in total control of distributing healthcare in the US.

Mike Rogers wants to invade Syria next

Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, Mike Rogers (R) Michigan, thinks it's time for the US to sacrifice more billions in treasure and thousands of lives in yet another middle-east hell-hole. This time, it's Syria. 

Rogers lectured the pinheads on CBS This Morning,  "The U.S. knows there has been some forensic evidence that at least small quantities" of chemical weapons may have been used. Rogers also says the United States has "lost the faith" of the opposition forces, adding, "This is the time to act. Don't wait until we have 5,000 dead."

Not only do we not need to invade Syria, we need to pull completely out of Iraq and Afghanistan. That part of the world is a lost cause. Regardless of which blood-thirsty dictator terrorizes those cat-boxes of sand, they'll continue to sell their oil on the international markets as always. 10 years in Iraq and Afghanistan and nothing has been accomplished.....if that's not the definition of a military quagmire I don't know what is.

Rogers thinks we've "lost the faith"? We never had the faith of the middle east. What bizarro world does he live in? Why do we, the US, have to solve every third-world catastrophe that comes along, for humanitarian reasons?  

Authoritarian busy-bodies in New Jersey

In New Jersey, the verminous, busy-body authoritarians who constitute what passes for government in that God-forsaken shit-hole of a state can, without any notice or judge-issued warrant, demand entry into a private home and force the owner to demonstrate registration and what they deem to be proper gun safety practices....all because a snoopy bureaucrat saw a picture on Facebook of a kid holding a gun.

The kid is 12 years old and is a legal hunter in New Jersey. He has passed a gun safety course and his father is a gun-safety instructor and gun-range supervisor. But that didn't matter to New Jersey's dept. of family services who threatened to take the kid away.

The father knew his rights and bravely refused entry to the jack-booted government thugs. Gun registration is voluntary in NJ so the cops had nothing to do but turn around and go away. That they even attempted to enter this guy's home simply on the word of a sniveling, liberal busy-body is appalling.

Elizabeth Warren is stupider than a 5th grader

The reprehensible, "mother of the Occupy movement", Elizabeth Warren demonstrates just how stupid she is by suggesting that the minimum wage should be indexed to overall economic productivity. It is terrifying that people this moronic are leading our nation.....


Even someone with a child's understanding of economics can tell you why the existence of a minimum wage costs poor people their jobs. Yet these people who are given, not earn, minimum wage continue to vote for smarmy politicians like the maniacal moonbat Elizabeth Warren, who by increasing the MW would cost those same voters the jobs they hold. But then rampant unemployment, misery, and dependence is the end-goal of democrat politics.

One is hard pressed to find more child-like, self destructive, and pathetically ignorant voters as those who occupy the bottom of the democrat base.

Why the GOP will lose the next election

Yesterday on Meghan Kelly's show, neo-conservative and consummate Washington insider, Bill Kristol criticized Rand Paul for being a "neo-isolationist" and said the GOP would never nominate somebody like that to head up the party ticket against Hillary, probably.

This old-school, 1980's, America is the world's beloved policeman, thinking that will lose election after election for the GOP. Bill Kristol and his ilk at leadership levels is exactly what's wrong with the GOP. Reagan was terrific in the 80's, but the world and the US is vastly different than it was then. Clinging to 80's foreign policies of intervention every time there's a ethnic-skirmish in some third-world shit-hole of a country, having our military serve as meals-on-wheels delivery boys, lavishing billions in aid on stated enemies of the US, insisting on deporting 20million illegal aliens, refusing to consider gay marriage and marijuana legalization,  are not ways to win national elections. Those are how you win elections in rural Alabama.

Rand Paul's brand of libertarianism is what conservatives need to gravitate toward if we want to have a seat at the grown-up table when it comes to nationsl-level decision making.

The Pope's true identity revealed

A startling discovery from the Vatican today as onlookers were shocked to learn the true identity of Pope Francis. He's actually Batman.

CNN mourns the rapists' shattered lives rather than the victim's

When the two Stubenville rapists were sentenced over the weekend, CNN's Candy Crowley and Poppy Harlow stupidly wasted time lamenting the lost futures of these two boys who were convicted of raping an unconscious girl, as if the boys were unfairly convicted because of an overly harsh justice system, not because they are you know, brutal rapists....


Candy Crowly is known to be a pretend journalists from her piss-poor job moderating an Obama-McCain debate and she sure lived up to that reputation by not once wondering how being brutally raped by a couple of psychopathic thugs might affect the future of the girl who was raped.

Perhaps CNN should reconsider having two women with silly, little girl's names reporting on something as serious as rape and assign them to report on the local Better Homes and Gardens convention, annual white sales, and cats stuck in trees stories.

Separated at birth? Heh heh

Like tens of millions of other Americans, my wife and I are watching The Bible on the History Channel. Last night they did the part where Jesus wanders the desert for 40 days being tested for his life ahead, during which Satan tempts him. The actor/makeup they used to portray Satan bore a striking and hilarious resemblance to Barack Obama. It was as if they used a forensic program to age Obama 25 years and then used the result as the face of Satan.

I doubt it was intentional, but it was certainly funny.

$10,000,000,000 LHC finally pays off

Based on data analysis of collisions at the LHC, scientists think they have confirmed the existence of the sub-atomic particle, predicted in the 60's, that gives everything in the universe, mass.

From MYWAY news -- GENEVA (AP) - The search is all but over for a subatomic particle that is a crucial building block of the universe. Physicists announced Thursday they believe they have discovered the subatomic particle predicted nearly a half-century ago, which will go a long way toward explaining what gives electrons and all matter in the universe size and shape. 

The particle's existence helps confirm the theory that objects gain their size and shape when particles interact in an energy field with a key particle, the Higgs boson. The more they attract, so the theory goes, the bigger their mass will be.

I still don't get it. How does particle interaction in a field impart mass to the larger object (atom) of which they are sub-parts? 

I'll be impressed when somebody finally defines a unified theory of physics, that is, one that explains gravity.

Sarah Palin spanks Michael Waltrip for being an idiot

This was Sarah Palin's tweet to Michael Waltrip who stupidly mocked her for using the word "strategery" and then mocked her again for saying that she could see Russia from her house in Alaska.

First, "strategery" thought by many to have been used by George W. Bush, was actually an invention of Will Ferrell's as a way of mocking Bush. Bush never used that word.

Second, Tina Fey used "I can see Russia from my house" as a line in an SNL comedy sketch to make fun of Sarah Palin. Sarah never said that.

NASCAR had better yank the reigns on their announcers because most NASCAR fans are very conservative and adore Sarah Palin. Trying to sound cool by ridiculing her falsely is not a good business decision.

The Duggar expansion

The Duggar hillbilly clan announced that their oldest son's wife is expecting her third baby already. I don't know their names or which one that is really.....does it matter?

That poor girl married(and by married I mean was abducted and held captive) into that weirdo, circus-freak-show of a family and they're making her have a litter too. She already looks like a carbon copy of the Duggar mom.

Women in that family are little more than breeding cows.....how progressively modern.

Two words.....Stockholm Syndrome.

If the eyes are the window to the soul, then her soul is saying, "Somebody call the cops. I don't want to be a breed cow."

Jeb Bush is delusional

"No, I don't think there is any Bush baggage at all". So claims Jeb Bush when asked about the trouble with his name if he ran for President in 2016.

How's this for baggage? "Read my lips, no new taxes."(Bush '41), bailouts, TARP 1, billions in blood and treasure wasted in Iraq and Afghanistan, "I have to abandon free market principles in order to save the free market.", pro-amnesty, the sad disgraceful list goes on and on. 

No Jeb, you are a Karl Rove RINO with a couple of good ideas, but you can't win the conservative/libertarian vote, so don't bother running. Your family is done in American national politics for at least another generation.

Kwame Kilpatrick, please report to the hoosegow

The most corrupt mayor in the US(at least until Rahm Emanuel gets caught), Kwame Kilpatrick of Detroit, was sentenced today to prison on 40 charges including racketeering, mail fraud, extortion, bribery, kickbacks, bid rigging, and more. 

A local radio station hired a plane to fly over the city towing a sign that read, "Hey Kwame, don't drop the soap." 

Hahahaha......hilarious! Politicians deserve every bit of disrespect we citizens feel like throwing their way.

Mark Kelly, hypocrite or one-man sting operation

Astronaut, long-suffering husband of Gabbie Giffords, and outspoken gun-control nut Mark Kelly was caught legally purchasing an AR-15 in a Tucson gun store this week. He claims that he was just proving how easy it is to obtain an "assault weapon", whatever that is.

But Kelly's purchase was easy because he's a law-abiding citizen without any criminal record so he passed the background check with flying colors. He claims he'll turn it over to the sheriff's department as soon as he receives it. That's the lamest "sting operation" I've ever seen. All he demonstrated is that an otherwise lawful citizen can buy a gun. If he really wanted to make his point, he should have enlisted a felon or somebody in a straight-jacket and showed him buying a gun...illegally.

I think Mark Kelly was being a hypocrite. He wanted an AR-15 for himself before they're outlawed, though his position is that nobody should be allowed to own one. When he got recognized, he made up the story about his one-man "sting" operation.

RINO McCain just doesn't get it

Fresh off his unnecessarily harsh and rather obtuse criticism of Rand Paul's filibuster of John Brennan as CIA chief, John McCain want on the slithering, leftist tool Peirs Morgan's show to defend himself and be used as a useful idiot by Morgan to marginalize the conservative wing of the GOP......

From Daily Caller -- “Well, you know, I am always intrigued by the fact that when I disagree with my own party leadership, my own president — like saying that Donald Rumsfeld ought to resign, [or] we need to do the surge — then I’m a brave maverick,” McCain said. “When I’m taking on others, then he’s just an angry old man.”

Lindsay Graham and McCain actually thinks they're being conciliatory toward the Obama administration by confirming without objection John Brennan as CIA chief. Rand Paul's filibuster wasn't about Brennan personally, though a cogent argument could have been made for it, it was about the constitutionally unclarified question about killing American citizens with drones on US soil without due process. The administration had steadfastly refuse to rule that out and Paul rightly wanted somebody in the administration to say, not that they promise not to do it, but that they couldn't legally do it, period. Finally Holder wrote a brief memo stating that killing by drone, US citizens on US soil, without due process was unconstitutional. 

The question wasn't whether it is preposterous for any administration to kill US citizens without due process, of course it preposterous. The question was, did the administration think it was legal to do so, not whether they intended to do it.

Rand Paul stood for the Constitution while McCain and Graham did not, and for that, they are both dead to me.

CPAC warms to gays?

The GOP seriously needs to increase the size if its tent by including the only minority who actually wants to be included, gays. Whether accurate or not, the perception is that conservatives are hostile to gays, but it's only because of their lifestyles. Many gays I know are as conservative as I am, and I'm slightly to the right of Attila the Hun. The conservatives at CPAC need to reach out to the Log Cabin Republicans and GOPround folks and show that we don't care what your orientation is, just be fiscally conservative and in favor of small government......

From NBCnews -- GOProud, a Republican gay-rights group, is still not officially invited to attend CPAC, next week's conservative conference in the D.C. area -- but it will be on site. Jimmy LaSalvia, GOProud's co-founder and executive director, will be participating in a panel happening at the same time as CPAC, in the same building as CPAC, sponsored by one of the same hosts of CPAC.

I sincerely hope for the future of America that the GOP decides to move toward the libertarian wing of the party and I think it will as the old guard dinosaurs like McCain and Graham retire and are replaced by more libertarian thinkers like Rand Paul and Ted Cruz. I don't know what those guys' stands are on gay marriage and all that, but they'd be stupid not to welcome any conservatives into the fold via an equal seat at the CPAC table, regardless of sexual orientation.

Rand Paul's filibuster was a watershed moment for a possible third political party

While the old guard GOP guys wined and dined with Obama, Rand Paul and his Tea Party friends defended the Constitution from Obama stooges like Eric Holder and John Brennan, by filibustering into the night, the nomination to the CIA of Brennan.

Earlier Eric Holder, in Brennan's defense, could not say definitively that a President did not have the Constitutional authority to kill by drone and American citizen on American soil without due process. Brennan would effectively be an Obama rubber stamp at the CIA, which is why Paul was correct to oppose his nomination.

By standing up for the Constitution by filibuster, Rand Paul left the old-school GOP in his dust, and hopefully in the distbin of history, and established himself as the putative leader of a new third party(yet to be named) that may be electorally viable in the next few elections.

African lion 1, dumb lion handler 0

When you keep wild carnivores as pets and then let inexperienced people handle them, bad things tend to happen. Such is the case in California when a young woman entered a lion cage during feeding time.....

From ABCnews -- The victim was identified as 24-year-old Dianna Hanson, who was two months into her internship program at the Cat Haven in Dunlap, a small town in Fresno County near King's Canyon National Park.

Ok, African lions don't much care what you bring them to eat. It could be a dead chicken, a bowl of Alpo, or yourself....they can't much tell the difference.

Why the lion was shot is a mystery. It was just doing what lions do, they kill. This girl had almost no experience with these cats and she was practically unknown to them. Why did she have keys to their cages? Her own hubris and stupidity killed her. 

Thanks to regular reader David for sending this in.

Sequestration hurts Americans, but not Islamic radicals

In 1971 John Kerry earned for himself a hallowed lifetime place of honor in the democrat party by slandering fellow soldiers, while in uniform. Instead of being hanged for treason, he was awarded with a seat in the US Senate and most recently, the plum job of Sec. State, replacing Hillary Clinton. But that's how it is in the democrat party, the more you loathe and criticize your own country, the higher up you rise....witness the man who has more contempt for America and Americans than any other.....Barack Obama.

To see Kerry's and Obama's contempt for America's interests, one has to look no further than the 16 F-16's, 200 tanks, and now $250million we are shoveling to our enemies the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt. And that's on top of the $110million we just approved for the Syrian rebels.

And our government and the media grin and lecture us like we're stupid children that there isn't enough money to keep illegal aliens in prison, pay teachers, firemen, cops, or meat inspectors.

7 year old Josh Welch of Baltimore decided to munch his strawberry pop-tart into the shape of a mountain, but it vaguely reminded his teacher of the shape of a gun, so she smiled and complimented him on his creativity.

Just kidding, the militantly stupid teacher suspended him for two days and every child in the school was sent home with a letter detailing the "disruption" their child experienced having to do with a possible gun at school. In America, zero tolerance has replaced common sense and apparently public-school teachers are ok with not having any responsibility to think.

When my nephew J.P. was like 4, he ate his PB&J sandwich into the shape of a gun once and even pointed it at my sister and laughed maniacally. Luckily we were a sane nation 15 years ago and it was at home not school, so my sister just roller her eyes. If that had been at school today in Obama's zero-tolerance America, he could've ended up in juvee for that.

Obama cries "Wolf!" with sequestration cuts

President Obama and his personal lapdogs in the media would have you believe that the budget apocalypse is upon us and treasonous republicans are to blame for any pain felt because of it. Well, because of "baseline budgeting", a treasonous yet clever, accounting trick used by congress to make sure government never ever shrinks from one year to the next, the amount of money spent this year by congress is still more than last year. It's just that the increase is less than expected. This helpful chart I found over at Moonbattery.com will simplify just how small sequestration is and why any panic suggested by the verminous media is wholly manufactured for Obama's political benefit.

If the American economy cannot absorb even this small of a decrease in spending, what possible future are we leaving to our kids who'll have to pay these bills we're running up?

Donna Brazile humiliates self as an ignorant 'tard

This tweet from democrat talking-head Donna Brazile might win the award as the funniest so far of Obama's second term......

What a stupid moron! What did she think would happen when you put government in charge of 1/7th of the US economy? Yet there was Brazile from '07-'12, shilling for Obama on every news talk show that would have her. I guess she should have actually read the Obamacare bill before she advocated that it be passed, after all.

Alabama leads the nation in something good for once

For once Alabama leads the nation in something positive: the state GOP reps rammed through a school voucher program so that students in failing schools can attend better schools, private or public, outside their district. 

Of course the teachers' union is apoplectic because their utter failure to teach will now receive the sunshine it deserves and teachers in unions, like vampires, hate the light of day being shone on them.

Chicken Littles in Washington

In January, any working American saw their paychecks take a 2% hit when the social security tax holiday wasn't renewed. Today the Obama-defined sequestration cuts take effect and you'd think the sky was falling. Why is it that American families can adjust to less money, but the federal government cannot. And that's not even the real story....

Because of practically criminal "baseline budgeting", an accounting trick the federal government uses to make sure the size of government never, ever shrinks, The sequestration cuts amount to only slowing the increase from last year. No budgets are actually getting cut.

All the histrionics and drama in Washington amount to Obama trying to make the cuts as painful as possible so he can blame it on republicans, and the republicans running around trying to find enough cameras to yell into as they point the finger of blame at Obama, when republicans are just as bad about spending too much money as any democrat ever was.

They're all just useless parasites, sucking at the public teat and setting themselves up for bright and rosy futures at our expense. Besides there's so much fraud, waste, and abuse associate with taxes and spending that if you cut all that out, line by line, you'd have so much money left over we could all enjoy a fat tax cut in perpetuity.

Nerd outrage over "Jedi Mind Meld"

Color me outraged. The coolest man on the planet caused nerds' heads to explode today when he stupidly mixed Star Wars and Star Trek references. "Jedi Mind Meld"? Lame!!!


Joe Biden's pro-shotgun tour gets more ridiculous

Last week our idiot vice president offered advice for women who want to deter a home invasion. They should simply go outside on their porch and fire a double-barreled shotgun into the air. Here's why that's a bad idea......

First, it'll give away your position to the attacker. And second, it takes time to reload a double-barreled shotgun so for maybe 20 seconds, you'll be unarmed and vulnerable.

Yesterday, he doubled-down on his stupidity by suggesting that if there's an unwanted person at the door, just fire a shotgun blast through the door. How is this the worst advice ever? Let me list the ways....

a. what if it's a stranger, but a non-threatening one like the postman with your Omaha Steaks shipment or the cable guy?
b. now that you've destroyed your door, you are really vulnerable to intruders.
c. you could be in serious legal trouble for shooting somebody who hasn't entered your home uninvited.

I'm sure you can think of other reasons why shooting through your door sight unseen, is a bad idea. Why the administration is hellbent on talking the American people out of using semi-automatic weapons to protect themselves escapes me, but I'll guess that general disarming of the American citizenry is always the goal of democrats. What does the government have to fear from an armed populace? Too much resistance?
