Home of the Whopper

So this is happening:

Burger King may be the home of the Whopper, but Canada may be the new home of Burger King.

The restaurant operator said on Sunday that it was in talks to buy Tim Hortons, the Canadian doughnut-and-coffee chain, in a potential deal that would create one of the world’s biggest fast-food businesses.

If completed, the deal would mean Burger King’s corporate headquarters would move to Canada, raising the specter of yet

Why tell little lies when you can get away with big ones?

While I will admit that anyone making the case that there is plenty of competition for all the lying done by this WH, the argument can be made that the ludicrous claim they are transparent in their dealings and want an independent press can be seen as taking the cake. With so many key Obama people, all under investigation, destroying subpoenaed evidence, or the history of Obamacare and the lies and vote buying that … Read more

This “IS” how collectivism always plays out, idiots…

Surprisingly, in a parody I think most leftist, including the people at the WaPo, will miss, they have an article titled “Rare diary gives details of life under Khmer Rouge“, which describes the beautiful agrarian revolution brought to Cambodia by the Khmer Rouge. From the article:

Nearly 40 years ago, hunched on the floor of the wood-and-leaf hut he was forced to live in away from his children, Cambodian school inspector Poch Younly

This is happening by design

You would think that the morons at the LA Times, considering how blatant the evidence is to make the point, would realize that the revelation that 40% of American households are under financial stress, actually is a repudiation of the “social justice” agenda. Instead they are arguing that the cure for this distress is more of the very policies and practices that cause the harm. For these collectivist twits there is no economic malaise … Read more

Spin debunked.

Today’s big headline is that “Dow drops 200-plus points; stocks negative for July“, which coming on the heels of the almost surely to be found out as bunk revelation by the desperate Donkey mouthpiece of former fame and glory claiming for the umpteenth time that the economic recovery is here, should make you wonder.

Scuttlebutt I heard is that when you really break down that 4% growth the NYT claims happened you … Read more

What would the crack addict say?

Who would be surprised that when asked what the best solution to his drug problem would be, a crack addict would say the answer wasn’t to get into drug rehab, but to get more crack to smoke? Similarly, who would be surprised to find that when progressive shitbags get asked how to fix the massive deficit spending by the Obama administration their answer wouldn’t be to get spending under control, but that people already fleeced … Read more

The Obama economy

If you doubt that the things the left does and claims to do to help us are having the exact opposite result, check out ZeroHedge’s post. In one month the country lost 523K full time jobs, which were replaced with almost 800K part time jobs. Do I need to mention what signature Obama progressive policies are behind this shift, or is it sinking in for people that think if government says it is free, … Read more

The Book No One is Reading

Quick shot before today’s longer post: we have a new champion for the book that everyone buys and no one reads. Three guesses as to what it is and the last two don’t count.… Read more

It was a mistake! – just like the Learner IRS emails being eaten by her dog.. (UPDATED)

Make what you want of this – I know exactly what it means to me, but then again, I am not a cultists blinded by faith in AGW, and what it should mean to people that respect the scientific process – but if you suspect something is rotten in Denmark, you are on the right track.

According to NOAA’s National Climatic Data Center in 2012, the “average temperature for the contiguous U.S. during July

Another myth about “The Party of the Little People” getting busted?

And it is about time. People are wizening to the fact the people ripping them off the hardest are those that have been claiming, for decades, to be on their side and they are not happy. It is not a mistake that when progressives grab power, the policies they put into place to redress the wrongs they constantly harp about, actually do the exact opposite of what they tell everyone they want to do. … Read more
