"Shut Up," he explained – UPDATED

Source<centerWrites Allahpundit: "It’s practically a taunt."Indeed, I find it breathtaking. The man is supposed to be the leader of the country, the president of ALL the people, not just the ones who agree with him, and he's basically over half the nation to just shut up and fall in line.In fact, the president and his White House have been so irresponsible this week, what with their, "punch back twice as hard" nonsense (good going, there, chief) and so blatantly authoritarian with t … [Read more...]

Protesting with Detachment, MLK-style -UPDATED

Early yesterday evening, I wrote:You know who could put a stop to the bad feelings arising in this country? President Obama, who is supposed to be the leadership. Just as Bill Clinton and Hillary Clinton backed off when they realized America was not into having their Healthcare taken over by the government, Obama could say, “you know, I’m moving kind of fast here, maybe we’ll shelve this for a while and concentrate more on putting people back to work, which is urgent.”Such a move would be an … [Read more...]

"You can't talk to them…"

This is nonsense.(H/T ArmyWifeToddlerMom and reader Dick T.Because I want to assume the best, and not the worst, I'm going to assume that the police officer, who would not allow people to converse and who apparently did not want the vid-taker to discuss Obamacare with anyone, was simply trying to make sure nothing got out of control.What I don't understand is why conversation between peaceable people should require a police presence? Clearly these ladies were no threat to anyone and were … [Read more...]

"Carrying Swastikas…"

(H/T)Nancy Pelosi, Speaker of the House: "They're carrying swastikas and symbols like that...".Kevin Aylward says of Pelosi's assertion: What a CROCK! You'll want to read it, and then take a look at the "nazi thugs that have Pelosi so worried.Barbara Boxer, D-CA: Townhall protesters are "too well dressed..." to be real.Repeat after me:The fascist is whoever is trying to shut you up, shut you down, dis-employ you, silence you, cripple you or marginalize you for the crime of daring to … [Read more...]

Obey-mian Representative Democracy

SourceI'll say this for Life Under the Obama Regime, the inclusion of communist-inspired propaganda art has certainly upgraded and enlivened political expression. This is much more captivating (and substantive) than, for example, the played-out Bushian beheadings and vampires. (H/T)Then there is the spreading Joker, which apparently has been collecting new captionsArt appreciation aside, does anyone remember the recent demonizing of corporate fellows who dared to take private jets to … [Read more...]

Obama as the Joker

For reasons that baffle me, a big deal is being made over someone photoshopping the president's face into a representation of The Joker from the The Dark Knight. The LA Weekly, eager to play the racism card says "the only thing missing is the noose."Whaaa?Now, I can see if someone had taken a picture of President Obama and photoshopped whiteface for spite and without context, (or, for that matter, blackface as done here to Michael Steele) then one might have a credible case for crying … [Read more...]

"Obama is making a birther out of me…" – UPDATES

Plowing through my email this morning that comment caught my attention: "Obama is making a birther out of me."The remark came from reader D. S.,someone who emails every few months, usually send me some obscure or amusing news tidbit, or sometimes writing about something military. He's a well-educated and most sensible chap who has never mentioned the birther bunch before, but apparently Congress passing a resolution proclaiming that Obama was born in Hawaii bothered him.I never gave … [Read more...]

Benjamin Franklin, We Need You!

Over the years, Franklin had been developing a social outlook that, in its mixture of liberal, populist and conservative ideas, would become one archetype of American middle-class philosophy. He exalted hard work, individual enterprise, frugality and self-reliance. On the other hand, he also pushed for civic cooperation, social compassion, and voluntary community improvement schemes. He was equally distrustful of the elite and the rabble, of ceding power to the well-born establishment or to … [Read more...]

No, you can't see the numbers; the King is a Fink

The King is a Fink by Parker & HartSo, the White House is not going to give us taxpayers a timely update on the nation's money and employment situation.They're just gonna "hold that information back" until Congress goes into recess.They're just gonna keep everyone in the dark until they muscle through his unpopular Healthcare legislation - that 1,000-page, unread, undebated document - that will push our deficit into unbearable territory, give the government unprecedented control over … [Read more...]

Ok, concedo; the world is nuts

Reading the news today, I feel a little like Roberto Duran, blocking the blows and shouting, "no mas, no mas!"Let's start here:Pop’s parents, both 24, made a decision when their baby was born to keep Pop’s sex a secret. Aside from a select few...nobody knows Pop’s gender; if anyone enquires, Pop’s parents simply say they don’t disclose this information.In an interview with newspaper Svenska Dagbladet in March, the parents were quoted saying their decision was rooted in the feminist … [Read more...]
