Occupy This

19 October 2011

Joe Biden wishes opponents of President Barack Obama’s latest stimulus knew what it felt like to be robbed or raped. Really. Well, fortunately for us, Obama’s new BFFs are there to help us! If we want to know how it feels to be robbed or raped, all we have to do is go to one of those Occupy rallies that he’s so fond of.

Update: If you do get raped at OccupyBaltimore, keep it to yourself; or report it to the OccupyBaltimore staff who will arrange counseling for you and the rapist. But they’d prefer to keep the police out of it.

A Song For #OccupyWallStreet

Of course, I’ve got my own set of lyrics for this tune…

They Have No Hope, But Change Would Be Nice

10 October 2011

OccupyReality … for a change.

Carbon Credits for Corpses

5 October 2011

From Watts Up With That? we learn that a University of Toronto study (with an inappropriate photo) that “Herbivore populations will go down as temperatures go up.” (H/T: JCM) Well, that explains why wimpy liberal vegetarians are the people most likely to be frightened by global warming fairy tales.

Speaking of decreases in population, the end result of carbon trading is the same as the end result of every other socialist scheme: Mass killings.

GWPF — The reported killing of 23 Honduran farmers in a dispute with the owners of UN-accredited palm oil plantations in Honduras is forcing the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) executive board to reconsider its stakeholder consultation processes. … At issue are the reported murders of 23 local farmers who tried to recover land, which they say was illegally sold to big palm oil plantations, such as Grupo Dinant, in a country scarred by widespread human rights abuses. In July, a report by an International Fact Finding Mission was presented to the European Parliament’s Human Rights Sub-committee, alleging that 23 peasants, one journalist and his partner, had all been murdered in the Bajo Aguán region, between January 2010 and March 2011. The deaths were facilitated by the “direct involvement of private security guards from some of the local companies who are complicit with police and military officials,” the report said. In some cases it cited “feigned accidents” in which peasants were run over by security guards working for two named palm oil businessmen. In other cases, the farmers were simply shot, or “disappeared.” … carbon credits from the plantations can still be freely traded on the EU ETS, which allows polluters to offset their carbon emissions by nominally clean energy investments. … for now, business continues as usual in Aguán and the world’s carbon markets, despite the “systemic and grave human rights violations” noted by the IACHR report. “If this is really a direct consequence of Europe’s climate policies then I would like to send my sincere apologies to the people of Honduras,” [Green MEP] Bas Eickhout said. “The CDM is supposed to be offering environmental benefits and sustainable development but these kinds of stories are really terrible. I don’t want to hear them anymore.” (H/T: Soylent Green)

Someone just pointed out to me that similar things are happening in Africa as well. Looks like Al Gore’s AGW Hoax is competing with Barack Obama’s Fast and Furious program to see who can kill more foreigners.

Yes, I Know It Should Be “Fewer”

29 September 2011

With the popularity of the President and his party in the toilet, with the possibility of the Republicans not only taking the White House but also the Senate as well next year, the mask continues to slip off of the would-be tyrants and commissars of the Democrat Party. They have never had anything but contempt for the American people, have always thought that they knew best how to control our lives, resent the Constitution standing in the way of their agenda, and detest the fact that they need to be accountable to the voters who are too stupid to act as the MSM tells them to do.

“I’d like to work my way around Congress.” –President Barack Obama (D)

“I think we ought to suspend, perhaps, elections for Congress for two years…” –Governor Beverly Perdue (D-NC)

“We need less democracy.” –Peter Orszag, former Obama OMB director

We do not need less democracy. We need less Democrats.

Isn’t Everything “Commerce”?

16 August 2011

Obama thinks that forcing people to buy health insurance – specifically, his health insurance at his prices that covers only what he thinks should be covered and refuses the care that he thinks should be refused – “should not be controversial”… (H/T: WZ)

If the government has a right to control its citizens’ actions in the name of “commerce,” just think about all of the other “non-controversial” things the government can do with the exact same justification… (H/T IMAO)

“If Congress has the power to make you buy health insurance, where does it stop? Then they’d have the power to make you get tattoos, and they’ve got the power to make you wear little yellow stars on your coat sleeves.” –Doug Urbanski

“…If the government can compel people to engage in private economic transactions like… the individual mandate… because it might affect interstate commerce, then imagine if the government had the power to force people to pick cotton in return for room and board…” –ibid

Do you see any controversy? No? Me neither.

Outrage? Where is your HONESTY?

25 July 2011

Today’s dose of Leftist revisionism and propaganda comes from Where is the Outrage:

GOP Equals Hypocrisy — With Eric Cantor walking out of the high-level debt ceiling negotiation, I thought it’d be interesting to look back and figure out how many times the House Majority Leader and his colleagues voted to raise the debt ceiling under George W. Bush. One would figure, because they are fiscally conservative, they probably only voted to raise the debt ceiling once or twice under the eight-year tenure of George W. Bush. The GOP hypocrites raised the debt ceiling … 7 times … under George W. Bush and not once did they hold the president hostage to debt ceiling negotiations. (H/T: Babbazee)

The bias and motivation are obvious. It’s also obvious that, in order for his claim (that hypocrisy is exclusively a GOP trait) to be true, that the Democrats (including Obama) must have remained consistent on their positions towards the debt ceiling. But since they voted against raising the debt ceiling under Bush, but are rabidly in favor of it now, why is a change of attitude only evidence of hypocrisy when the GOP does it? Surely, on that basis, if hypocrisy exists at all, it must certainly exist on both sides of Congress (and in the White House as well), no?

Of course, that makes the assumption that the situation under Bush then is identical to the situation under Obama now. If the only thing that’s different is that a Democrat (or “a black man”, to quote the deranged Sheila Jackson Lee and others) is in the White House now instead of Bush, and that this is the sole reason for the change in opinion (on both sides); then yes, a claim of hypocrisy may credibly be made (although the claims of racism, lack of patriotism, and so forth also being hurled at the GOP remain unsupported and reprehensible). However, the situation is not identical…

Highway to Hell

20 March 2011

“The road to Hell is paved with good intentions.” One has to wonder why people so willfully refuse to see where their intentions are leading… thus making it impossible for them to turn, slow down, or stop.

And They Should Know

26 December 2010

Staten Island, NY – Many Russian immigrants to the “red borough” of Staten Island are flocking to the Republican Party, saying that the national Democrats’ “socialistic” policies remind them too much of the top-down oligarchy they fled in their native land. With many of the borough’s Russian arrivees already owning businesses and active in civic organizations, their muscle could help the Island GOP solidify electoral gains made this year, when the party took back congressional and Assembly seats. Businessman Arkadiy Fridman said that the newly formed Citizens Magazine Business Club, a confederation of more than 50 Russian-owned businesses here and in Brooklyn, has aligned itself with the Molinari Republican Club (MRC) in an effort to increase the Russian community’s political and economic clout. … Fridman said that the Democrats “are going in an absolutely different direction,” focusing on “income redistribution” and rich-versus-poor “class war.” … The Big Brother approach reminds Fridman too much of what he left behind in the former Soviet Union. … Former Borough President Guy Molinari, the MRC’s namesake, said he’d noticed over the years that Russian immigrants here tended to register Republican. Molinari called the affiliation with MRC “a natural marriage.” State Sen. Diane Savino (D-North Shore/Brooklyn) said she understands the Russian aversion to anything that looks like big government, but thinks the criticism of the Democratic Party is off-base. … “You can’t compare the policies of the Democratic Party with communism. It’s absurd.”

*This* is “Truth to Power”

30 November 2010

I got this video from I Hate the Media! “Who the hell do you think you are? The Euro game is up!”

…Consider it the European equivalent to that moment that moment when Rick Santelli erupted on CNBC and the Tea Party was created. The scene is European Parliament in Strasbourg on November 24. Nigel Farage, a member of the European Parliament representing the United Kingdom, is involved in a debate about economic governance when he loses it. “Who the hell do you think you are? The Euro game is up! … We don’t want that flag, we don’t want the anthem, we don’t want this political class. We want the whole thing consigned to the dust bin of history … You are very, very dangerous people indeed. Your obsession with creating this Euro-state means that you’re happy to destroy democracy. You appear to be happy for millions and millions of people to be unemployed and to be poor. Untold millions must suffer so that your Euro-dream can continue …”

Funny, that last bit sounds very similar to the situation and complaints back here in the states, too. “I should thank you! You should perhaps be the pinup boy of the EuroSkeptic movement!”

Extreme Domestics

24 November 2010

According to Doug Hagmann at the Canada Free Press (H/T: Saynsumthn)

Following the publication of my article titled “Gate Rape of America,” I was contacted by a source within the DHS who is troubled by the terminology and content of an internal memo reportedly issued yesterday at the hand of DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano. … The memo, which actually takes the form of an administrative directive, appears to be the product of undated but recent high level meetings between Napolitano, John Pistole, head of the Transportation Security Administration (TSA),and one or more of Obama’s national security advisors. This document officially addresses those who are opposed to, or engaged in the disruption of the implementation of the enhanced airport screening procedures as “domestic extremists.” The introductory paragraph of the multi-page document states that it is issued “in response to the growing public backlash against enhanced TSA security screening procedures and the agents conducting the screening process.” Implicit within the same section is that the recently enhanced security screening procedures implemented at U.S. airports, and the measures to be taken in response to the negative public backlash as detailed [in this directive], have the full support of the President. In other words, Obama not only endorses the enhanced security screening, but the measures outlined in this directive to be taken in response to public objections. … It labels any person who “interferes” with TSA airport security screening procedure protocol and operations by actively objecting to the established screening process, “including but not limited to the anticipated national opt-out day” as a “domestic extremist.” The label is then broadened to include “any person, group or alternative media source” that actively objects to, causes others to object to, supports and/or elicits support for anyone who engages in such travel disruptions at U.S. airports in response to the enhanced security procedures. … [emphasis added]

So, just by objecting to the new security theater, in my blog and in song, I am officially considered by the administration and President Obama personally to be a “domestic extremist.” And any of you who have done likewise are sitting on the Group W bench with me. So, what does that mean?

For individuals who engaged in such activity at screening points, it instructs TSA operations to obtain the identities of those individuals and other applicable information and submit the same electronically to the Homeland Environment Threat Analysis Division, the Extremism and Radicalization branch of the Office of Intelligence & Analysis (IA) division of the Department of Homeland Security. For “any person, group or domestic alternative media source” that actively objects to, causes others to object to, supports and/or elicits support for anyone who engages in such travel “disruptions” at U.S. airports (as defined above) in response to the enhanced security procedures, the [applicable DHS administrative branch] is instructed to identify and collect information about the persons or entities, and submit such information in the manner outlined [within this directive].

It’s the holiday season; the government is making their lists and checking them twice. Forget about terrorists or even illegal aliens, the government is far more interested in tracking and controlling us.

Nancy Pelosi’s San Francisco

15 November 2010

I haven’t seen it, but people (or, to be more accurate, leftists) have been complaining about a new show called Sarah Palin’s Alaska. Zombie has responded with a collections of photos from the Zombie archives called Nancy Pelosi’s San Francisco. (Warning! Not safe for work, and not in a good way!) These are all pictures taken by the undead one in San Francisco, and provide yet another timely reminder of what used to happen when dissent was still considered “the highest form of patriotism” by the left (a philosophy when ended the very second Obama was sworn in), and also of what hateful, angry protest (complete with swastikas and death threats against President Bush) really look like. Photos like this never appear in the mainstream media, since leftist protests are always sanitized (and the numbers exaggerated) while conservative protests are endlessly denigrated (and the numbers understated) if they’re even reported on at all. Not for the weak of stomach!
