The Union of the Snake

9 April 2010

According to The Plum Line (H/T: Hot Air), the SEIU (the purple-shirted union thugs who were being bused to town hall meetings to rough up anti-Obama protesters) is starting a third party in North Carolina, as a “shot across the bow of Dems” who just aren’t sending this country to socialist hell in a handbasket fast enough to suit them.

SEIU officials setting up the new party, called North Carolina First, are currently on the ground collecting signatures to qualify as a state party, SEIU officials tell me, adding that there are around 100 canvassers on the ground right now. The goal: To have the party up and running so candidates can run in this fall’s elections. It won’t be lost on political observers that three House Dems who voted No on reform are from the state: Heath Shuler, Mike McIntyre, and Larry Kissell. The new project is an outgrowth of SEIU’s earlier vow to hold House Dems accountable for voting against health reform and against labor’s interests in general.

Don’t the labor unions get to keep their expensive “Cadillac” health plans? So the only way in which destroying everybody else’s health care is in “labor’s interests” is if it forces more and more people to join unions in order to get a health care plan that actually, you know, cares for their health. In any event, vagabond trader over at The Blogmocracy referred to them as “The Purple People Beater Party”, which inspired me to pen this ditty (apologies to Sheb Wooley):


Ban the Burqa

9 April 2010

The muslim mobile tent has claimed another victim – Muslim woman strangled by her burkha in freak go-kart accident – and even the oh-so-politically correct Canadians of all people are mulling a ban on the burqa, which is actually being supported by moderate muslims (see, they do exist!) Let the cries of raaaaacism and the complaints to the “human rights” commissions begin!

There are three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies, and deceptive WikiLeaks editing. (Full analysis at Jawa Report.)

Try Embedding in Reality for Once

7 April 2010

CNN “embedded” reporters with the recent Tea Party Express, and discovered – to their shock, but not to the shock of anyone not blinded by left-wing propaganda – that not all tea partiers are racists! Goodness! Unfortunately, the story is still heavily slanted, opening as it does with a complete and utter baldfaced lie…

Here’s what you often see in the coverage of Tea Party rallies: offensive posters blasting President Obama and Democratic leaders; racist rhetoric spewed from what seems to be a largely white, male audience; and angry protesters rallying around the Constitution. Case in point: During the health care debate last month, opponents shouted racial slurs at civil rights icon Georgia Rep. John Lewis and one person spit on Missouri Rep. Emanuel Cleaver. The incidents made national headlines, and they provided Tea Party opponents with fodder to question the movement. [emphasis added]

The slurs, the spit – that didn’t happen. Period. So, while it’s a departure from the year-long narrative for CNN to admit that “maybe some tea partiers aren’t racists”, the article still opens with and carries on the message that all of the rest of them are. So, rather than a major reversal and an acknowledgment of reality on CNN’s part, this merely represents an extremely minor concession… Because, by now, the general populace knows damned well that there is no truth to the statement that “all tea partiers are racist”; so CNN thinks they can continue the smears if they merely make the cosmetic change of declaring that “most tea partiers are racist”. Meanwhile, the rest of us can take some pleasure in the admittedly exaggerated but still closer to accurate statement that “most CNN viewers have changed the channel to FOX News.”

Flash Your Headlights in Protest

7 April 2010

“Women march topless in Portland without incident” The Portland Press Herald (H/T: Weasel Zippers, who would “pay money to the feminazis that I’ve seen to keep their tops on…“)

About two dozen women marched topless from Longfellow Square to Tommy’s Park this afternoon in an effort to erase what they see as a double standard on male and female nudity. The women, preceded and followed by several hundred boisterous and mostly male onlookers, many of them carrying cameras, stayed on the sidewalk because they hadn’t obtained a demonstration permit to walk in the street.

I wonder how many of those “boisterous” males had longfellows?

After the marchers reached Tommy’s Park in the Old Port, some turned around and walked back to Longfellow Square, but most stayed and mingled in the park. Some happily posed for pictures. Police said there were no incidents and no arrests – nudity is illegal in Maine only if genitals are displayed.

So if it was already legal, what was the problem?

Ty McDowell, who organized the march, said she was “enraged” by the turnout of men attracted to the demonstration. The purpose, she said, was for society to have the same reaction to a woman walking around topless as it does to men without shirts on.

Yeah, good luck with that. Was she really not expecting men to show up to see boobs? (Paging Captain Obvious on the white phone!) Is she one of those idiots who are “surprised” by the unemployment figures every month?

However, McDowell said she plans to organize similar demonstrations in the future and said she would be more “aggressive” in discouraging oglers.

Exactly how do you do that when you’re in a public setting? And doesn’t that prove that your whole quest to undermine biology and reality is futile?

Boobs: the protesters or the photographers?

The boyz at Hillbuzz ask, “How often would you see this clip if it was President George W. Bush falling on the ground?” Apparently, it’s easy to trip when your head is up in the sky surrounded by rainbows and unicorns.

Another Fascist Teabagger — From the Left

3 April 2010

Remember that evil right-wing “Christian” militia that the Obama administration was taking down just as muslims were blowing up trains in Moscow? Well, they’re registered voters; and although the records of the Michigan residents are not available to the public, the party affiliation of the one from Ohio can be easily determined. Surprise! Arrested militia member Jacob J. Ward (from Huron, OH) voted as a Democrat in the 2004 and 2008 primary elections. He’s a member of the same political party as “conservative” gaybasher Fred Phelps and perennial Presidential candidate Lyndon LaRouche. Of course, there’s already the precedent set by a certain brain-damaged blogger that Democrat party affiliation is “proof” that one is really a “crypto-fascist teabagger”; but for those of us in the real world, this exists as merely another incident in a string of left-wing lunatics being “tied” to the Tea Party movement by completely false accusations of guilt by association. Go figure. You know, if the Tea Party movement was composed primarily of neo-nazi anti-government traitors, you’d think the Democrats and the media (but I repeat myself) would be able to actually produce some examples; but every time they try, the perp ends up being on their side of the spectrum. (We’re all still waiting to see that video of the racist epithets and saliva hurled at the Democrats as they goose-stepped to the Capitol to vote on ObamaCare; but we’re not holding our breath. Even the Congressman who was allegedly spit on is starting to back away from that story.)

Obama Takes Care of His Own

1 April 2010

According to the National Review‘s (H/T: AllahPundit) analysis of recipient report data from, as well as economic and political data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the Census Bureau, and, there was

no statistical correlation for all relevant unemployment indicators and the allocation of funds. This suggests that unemployment is not the factor leading the awards. Also, I found no correlation between other economic indicators, such as income, and stimulus funding. … On average, Democratic districts received one-and-a-half times as many awards as Republican ones. Democratic districts also received two-and-a-half times more stimulus dollars than Republican districts ($122,127,186,509 vs. $46,139,592,268). Republican districts also received smaller awards on average. (The average dollars awarded per Republican district is $260,675,663, while the average dollars awarded per Democratic district is $471,533,539.)

On the other hand, I live in a heavily Democratic district (my representative is the House Majority Leader), so let me tell you that receiving all of this money (the district, not me!) is no bed of roses either. In the last year they’ve ripped up and repaved just about every road in my area – in some cases, more than once. I guess that’s what happens when you run out of roads before you run out of pork.

Pissing me off: my stimulus tax dollars at work!
