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
Remember that racist do nothing Mayor Nagin of New Orleans, the guy that sat on his ass and ignored the “suggestions” of Bush to get his people out of the city the day before the hurricane struck? he is going to the big house;
Former New Orleans mayor C. Ray Nagin — who became the face of a desperate, drowning city during Hurricane Katrina — was convicted Wednesday on charges of accepting bribes from
I’ve been holding back on commentary on the latest Israel-Hamas conflict to see what was going to happen. What’s happening is a war. The latest news is that Hama militants crossed the border into Israeli territory and have fired over 150 rockets into civilian areas. Israel is responding with air strikes. And the sordid mess goes on and on.
There’s a lot of blaming both sides going on. And while I can certainly see … Read more
Since the US is out I don’t know if any more WC posts will garner much interest, but I’ll throw it out there just in case.
Germany/Brazil in about 2 hours. While I always root for the host country, I can’t see Brazil going forward, not without their two best players (one out on yellow cards and the other with a fractured spine). While watching the Brazil/Columbia match that first half had more muggings than … Read more
Remember last election, when all the pundits kept telling us that no one in history had ever won reelection with approval poll numbers so low, with unemployment this high, with the economy this bad, with (plug in any number of aphorisms used) indicating that Obama was toast? Clearly we were in uncharted territory. In a prior post Hal told us that we did it in the 1990′s (balanced a budget) and we can do it … Read more
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
I bookmarked these two video over the weekend. The first is a TED talk from George Takei. While I’m not fond of TED talks — they often cross me as smug and overly confident in their points — this one explains why George Takei still loves the country that interred him during the war:
(I’ve found this embed tends to hang. If someone has a better link, I’ll update the post.)
This comes close to … Read more
So, yesterday, we celebrated Independence Day, recognizing the birth of out great nation and the courage of the men who took on the world’s greatest empire to be free of oppression. Despite my general curmudgeonliness about many things, I do love the Fourth. I read the Declaration of Independence each Fourth of July and spent the hour before the fireworks talking to Sal 11000 Beta about our history and what it all really means (the … Read more
That mistreated, discriminated and misunderstood segment of society, the one that is totally under reported and ignored by the Hollywood crowd, is getting it’s own Whopper from Burger King, I suspect it will come with fabulous fries;
Burger King has concocted yet another way to have it your way: a gay pride burger.
The Proud Whopper, as it’s called, comes wrapped in a rainbow colored wrapper with this inscription: “We are all the same inside.”
