Outlawing Bad Thoughts…
Wednesday, April 30th, 2014 | Author:

I don’t often agree with commentary from Slate, but this makes sense:

the process does raise some troubling issues. A private citizen whose private thoughts were audio-taped perhaps illegally has been told he can no longer own his private property because of the thoughts that were revealed on that tape. These thoughts were loathsome to be sure, but didn’t advocate anything illegal and didn’t call for any violent or even literally hurtful actions.

Krazy Kerry and the Anti-Jews
Tuesday, April 29th, 2014 | Author:

This says it all

It’s the Peace Lobby that is frantically struggling to keep its big lie together. Its attacks on Israel are not a show of strength, but a desperate cover-up. From the high chambers where John Kerry suggests Israel is going to be an Apartheid State to the low chambers of failed boycotts against academics and soda companies, the purveyors of the big lie are coming apart at the seams.

A Contemporary Parable
Saturday, April 26th, 2014 | Author:

Fred was in the fertilized egg business. He had several hundred young ‘pullets,’ and ten roosters to fertilize the eggs.

He kept records, and any rooster not performing went into the soup pot and was replaced.

This took a lot of time, so he bought some tiny bells and attached them to his roosters. Each bell had a different tone, so he could tell from a distance, which rooster was performing. Now, he could sit on the porch and fill out an efficiency report by just listening to the bells.

Fred’s favorite rooster, old Butch, was a very fine specimen, but this morning he noticed old Butch’s bell hadn’t rung at all! When he went to investigate, he saw the other roosters were busy chasing pullets, bells-a-ringing, but the pullets, hearing the roosters coming, would run for cover

To Fred’s amazement, old Butch had his bell in his beak, so it couldn’t ring. He’d sneak up on a pullet, do his job and walk on to the next one.

Fred was so proud of old Butch, he entered him in the Brisbane City Show and he became an overnight sensation among the judges.

The result was the judges not only awarded old Butch the “No Bell Piece Prize,” but they also awarded him the “Pulletsurprise” as well.

Clearly old Butch was a politician in the making. Who else but a politician could figure out how to win two of the most coveted awards on our planet by being the best at sneaking up on the unsuspecting populace and screwing them when they weren’t paying attention.

The Obama Era of Irrationality
Wednesday, April 23rd, 2014 | Author:

This situation is mind-bending.  It reads like something you would observe in a Monty Python skit or read in the Onion:

In a perfectly Orwellian dissenting opinion, which she read dramatically from the bench, Justice Sotomayor argued that the decision of the people of Michigan to end racial discrimination is itself an instance of racial discrimination and that the only way to mitigate such racial discrimination is through the mandatory maintenance of racial discrimination.

Supreme Court Decides Against Affirmative Action
Tuesday, April 22nd, 2014 | Author:

I’ll sum up the upside-down thinking for you: the Liberal justice insists that not providing biases in favor of minorities is tantamount to racism… go figure:

Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia faulted Justice Sonia Sotomayor for making what he regards as a “shameful” suggestion that the Michigan voters who decided to ban affirmative action in college admissions were motivated by racism.

Reality Doesn’t Really Matter
Tuesday, April 22nd, 2014 | Author:

As noted recently by John Fund:

Democratic rhetoric is become ever more desperate and overheated as we approach the November midterm elections…

What is going on? Increasingly, journalists who cover the White House are concluding that the smears are part of a conscious strategy to distract voters from Obamacare, the sluggish economy, and foreign-policy reverses; the attacks are intended, the thinking goes, to drive up resentment and hence turnout among the Democratic base.

Does Obama Really Believe in Communism?
Sunday, April 20th, 2014 | Author:

It appears that others see a Manchurian Marxist Moslem:

Have you noticed the similarities between Barack Obama’s platform and that of the Communist Party USA? The correlations are undeniable to anyone who is being honest.

Real Politics – Tyranny versus Anarchy
Wednesday, April 16th, 2014 | Author:

People (including yours truly) often exclaim that the future of the country is about Left versus Right, or Socialists versus Capitalists…  In reality, it’s about tyranny versus anarchy,  That is, how much Government do we want versus how much potential chaos can you accept?

The issue is immune to your political affiliation. The coercive power that the Government is unleashing is getting out of control. This video highlights the creeping path of Tyranny.
