Obama official clarifies that he thinks it does nobody any good to vilify overpaid public employees because in the eyes of Democrats taxpayers count about as much as an unborn child.
Obama Administration responds to criticism it is being timid about a military response in Libya by reminding world it's keeping the military in a state of readiness in case it needs to respond to Fox News or the Koch brothers.Add a comment
Open Secrets maintains a list of the top all time donors to political campaigns, and it busts the Koch brothers BIG TIME! Check out the top 20 donors.
Wait, I don't see them on the list....Just a bunch of highlighted unions. Man thats a lot of donkey icons. Whats the deal Republicans? Where's the waterfall of corporate money into your coffers that the left promised? Are you all country club poor? I'm sure it's a typo.
Hold on a sec....
Read it and weep Teabaggers! Bow before your corporate overlords, even if they give a greater percentage to Democrats than the unions give to Republicans.
It's a good thing those unions outspend them by, like, 50 to 1. Gotta keep things fair, huh "progressives?"
High fives are on me tonight, left hands only.
The ratings for the Oscars were down again. I don't know if they've figured out what the reason is yet, but I would be surprised that one of them isn't the narcissistic of winners to use their moment on stage to pontificate to the world. It's not just the Oscars, it's all the awards shows, these idiots just can't help themselves
When Al Gore did it he declared to a packed house of limousine liberals, who live their lives to the absolute height of excess, that we should all do our part to reduce our carbon footprint. I drive a Toyota Corolla, I should be telling Gore what HE needs to do...if only he could hear me over the engine on his private jet, or from the gates of his energy guzzling mansions.
All those hypocrites have to do is adopt a middle class lifestyle....I'm sure they'd rather move to Hell.
Then we have this year, with these make-believe bubble dwellers chiming in on what's happening in Wisconsin and extolling the "woes" of public employee unions...
At the Academy Awards tonight, best cinematography winner Wally Pfister made a point during his acceptance speech of thanking his union crew on “Inception.”....
“I think that what is going on in Wisconsin is kind of madness right now,” Pfister says. “I have been a union member for 30 years and what the union has given to me is security for my family....”
From The Note
Taxpayers don't pay for your private sector union Mister Pfister (of course the "P" is silent). Maybe you should learn the difference between your union and the public sector before spouting off like you get your news from a Magic 8 Ball.
Hollywood has forgotten that the world tunes in to the Oscars for pomp and circumstance....not pompous circumstance. Thats why I don't just choose to not watch, I actually despise the entire event.
If they want to bring people like me into the fold I have a modest proposal...try some honest marketing, so we all know what we're actually getting....it might actually work.
I would like to thank the liberal bellyaching about billionaire boogeymen that allow them to deflect blame for their own electoral inadequacies. This concept would not have been possible without it.Add a comment
This obsession liberals have with making the Koch brothers the scapegoat for all things conservative these days is just too nauseating. They don't cry like babies when, as Eleanor Clift on "The McLaughlin Group" puts it below, "monied interests" like George Soros stick their billion dollar noses in our business.
I love Pat Buchanan laughing at the stupid harpy when she wonders why people think Walker is representing the people. Elections never seem to count when it's not their ilk who won.
I also loved how John McLaughlin told them to let her finish, like he was doing her a favor. If Clift thinks she is fooling anyone with her intellect then she must think we're pretty damn dumb, because she makes a 40 watt bulb look like a supernova.
So what about the Koch brothers? Why don't we consult liberalism's public enemy number 1......
According to followthemoney.org Koch Industries contributed exactly $43,500 to the governors race, which is .19% of the total money raised, and a WHOPPING .47% of the total contributions to Scott Walker's campaign.
Who contributed MORE than the Koch brothers to the Wisconsin governors race?
International Union Of Painters & Allied Trades - $43,528
Wisconsin Laborers District Council - $47,400
Wisconsin Afscme - $48,600
Electrical Workers - $49,000
So according to Clift, Scott Walker is looking out for "monied interests," meanwhile the unions (and the above is just a partial list) are throwing around money like they're starring in a rap video and outspending the Koch brothers, at a minimum, by 4 to 1...and that makes them what?
A caucus of paupers?
All of that money filled Democrat coffers, is anyone really dumb enough to suggest the Wisconsin Fleebaggers are acting out of principle?

This video may be traumatic to any "progressives" whose virgin brains have never been penetrated by intelligent thought and would come to the "logical" conclusion that olive branches and chit chat are the way to save yourself from savages that want to skin you into pioneer jerky.
The narrator called the air rifle featured in this video "peace through superior firepower."
Reagan called it "peace through strength."
Whatever it is one thing is for sure, it's undeniably effective...progressives. I don't care what your deity's teleprompter has to say on the matter.

I have to be honest, I thought Two and a half Men was a really stupid show. I saw a few episodes and the wonder that it had gone on for as long as it has is flabbergasting to me.
That said, the one thing I can appreciate about it is the people who worked on the show were able to put food on the table and a roof over their head because it provided their employment. This includes Charlie Sheen, but in his case that roof over his head was made of coked out porn stars.
It wasn't enough for Sheen to be satisfied with being the highest paid actor on television. He needed to be perpetually messed up on drugs too. Now some selfish rant against the network has caused the show to be cancelled for the season, effectively screwing hundreds of people out of work they need because they don't get to make millions for "acting" like an ingracious piece of s**t on camera.
Rather than cancel for the season, I think CBS should just reboot the show with a new cast. I have a few ideas, starting with a very obvious option...
Then there's a choice even more obvious than that...
I call this one "the trans-gender barrier buster"...
This is the best option, but the need for special effects make it cost prohibitive...

Eliot Spitzer welcomes Kathleen Parker's decision to leave the primetime CNN show they co-host, saying that if she's getting paid to spend an hour with him he should've gotten some sex out of it.Add a comment
This is how crappy it is to work for CNN...
Kathleen Parker, the Pulitzer-Prize winning journalist who co-hosted CNN's 8 p.m. show, is leaving just five months after the show debuted, the company announced Friday.
"I have decided to return to a schedule that will allow me to focus more on my syndicated newspaper column and other writings," Parker said in a statement.
This is like James Carville canceling an appointment so he can go get a haircut.
I'm sure it wasn't a very pleasant experience working with a man like Eliot Spitzer, who probably was offended being in the presence of a woman who was getting paid spend an hour with him without sex being part of the deal.
My only experience with the show was highlighted in this post from last November, when Rand Paul made Spitzer his Client Number 9 while Parker was probably too busy avoiding the reach of Spitzer under the table to concentrate on having an actual thought to contribute to the show.
So I don't blame her for wanting to leave the last place network in cable news to refocus her work on that 21st century dinosaur we call NEWSPAPERS.
After all, she's got to go where the audience is.Add a comment

A man in Lubbock Texas was arrested...
...late yesterday by FBI agents in Texas on a federal charge of attempted use of a weapon of mass destruction in connection with his alleged purchase of chemicals and equipment necessary to make an improvised explosive device (IED) and his research of potential U.S. targets.
Check out the story at Right Network
The most shocking part of the story is that the man was caucasion with sandy blond hair, blue eyes, wearing a cowboy hat and was a known Tea Party organizer in the area. See for yourself...
Obviously he beat himself until his skin bruised into a nice olive tone. In fact he be beat himself so bad even his hair bruised black.
Even though he attempted to hide himself from DHS by changing his name to Khalid Ali-M Aldawsari there were a few signs of suspicious activity that got them on to his scent:
He once drank tea at a party
His radio could pick up AM signals
He knew Glenn Beck spelled his name with two "n's"
His racist streak (he once posted on Facebook that the govnerment should heavily scrutinize Arab Muslims for suspected terrorism)
He went around shouting Reagan Akbar
America! F**K YEAH! Hi fives all around! Score one of the good guys, even though liberals run the Department of Justice, and thus have no clue they're the good guys.Add a comment
Liberal organizations coordinating advertising for Obama's reelection bid see major challenges ahead and start with hiring consultants who have attempted to sell ice to Eskimos.
Gay activists praise Obama's abandonment of DOMA defense and potentially paving the way for federal recognition of gay marriage, prompting promises from gay men to show female "breeders" how wedding dresses really get done.

When a company runs out of money to pay for the workers it has it gets rid of workers until they can afford themselves again. I know that sounds callous because jobs should be as plentiful as air, but they're not.
I hate to burst anyones bubble but your job isn't that important either, compared to air that is. Air sort of defies the laws of economics because its value doesn't go down with its seemingly infinite supply, it's THAT important.
In fact, it's second most important job, at the moment, is to give life...until it's done proving Al Gore wrong.
Compare that to a job that's really rare, the fewer of them the more valued they are, like being president B.O.
If the country had a million presidents, being one of a million would be a lot less impressive than one IN a million. Try dividing the job into a million pieces...that puts each president in charge of one page of ObamaCare. You just can't have that because then the law would REALLY be a mess.
This is just not true with air, being one of a bazillion makes air the king of the hill of all exceptions.
That's why this fight in Wisconsin is too important for Scott Walker, and the universe, to lose.
Because it has transformed into a beast that can never be fed, the public sector unions now think they're better than air. In fact, they think we need them more than air.
They've become so selfish they don't see that money is air for an economy...only A LOT more finite. Even though there isn't any more money the unions have been so big for so long they think they can continue to grow without it, and thus dethrone air.
After decades of this air is trying to be all like, "dude, unions, wtf? If you try to spread like me everything will die!"
But air can't talk, and here we have people like Governor Scott Walker trying to be a voice for the voiceless, and the unions are like, "you're wrong buddy! Look at the state's bank account, we're not choking it to death."
The bottom line is this, air is pretty awesome, even though it's everywhere. Which is actually why it's awesome, because it gets to be an exception to the rules of economics.
When you think of it that way you'll see air is a lot like God. Then there's Satan, who think's he's better than God, and the harder he tries to prove it the more stuff he ruins.
Basically, if we draw this out to it's logical conclusion, we are all innocent bystanders caught in the crosshairs of a sibling rivalry between the Satan and the public sector unions.Add a comment

A friend at Free Republic sent me this nifty graphic last weekend.
The GOP gets accused of fiscal fuzzy math all the time, that's because they're not visionary enough to know that the best way to deal with crushing government debt is to do nothing to reduce its overhead.
Then there is numerical comprehension, especially when looking at Wisconsin. For instance...
Chris Matthews: Let me go to the Republican, Senator Grothman. My question of course is why does the Governor pick on the unions that didn't endorse him in the last campaign but give a free ride to the firefighters and the cops who did and the localities? Why did they get off and are allowed to continue to negotiate collectively?

When it comes to Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker's efforts to fix that state's budget this has been the major point of attack for the left, if not the only one. Which is interesting because what has actually not been in dispute is the fact that Wisconsin is too broke to maintain the public sector status quo, but what about this attack?
Well, according to the Newsbusters article Walker points out that only 4 out of 314 fire and police unions actually endorsed him.
And THAT, my friends, is "progressive" math!
Apparently the exceptions are the rule, and if you take Obama's perspective on the exposing of Planned Parenthoods criminal cover up of exploitation the rule is the exception. The trick is knowing which one is which, and when.
It's actually not that hard. Basically, proglodytes always take the path that makes them look less guilty of idiocy. Take these equations, for example:
Dan Quayle + potatoe - liberal media bias = Joe Biden
Global warming + Science x "2 + record snow + Al Gore x Gore's two cents = Climate Change
Bush Recession + Obama Stimulus - Bill Clinton / shovelsHOPE + higher unemployment = Bush Recession
Michelle Obama + (Childhood Obesity x veggie tyranny) = Fat free hypocrisy
Conservatism + Major Hasan x DenialJared Loughner = Sarah Palin
Bill Maher + Helen Thomas - (TalentActual x Halloween365) = Nose
All of this is part of a far more complex equation, but I don't know all its components. I just know that you don't need a calculator to solve it because the answer is always "progressives are wrong."Add a comment
The first lady, in Vail with her daughters and some friends for the Presidents Day weekend, dined at Restaurant Kelly Liken in Vail Village Saturday night, enjoying a pickled pumpkin salad with arugula and a braised ancho-chile short rib with hominy wild mushrooms and sauteed kale....
A braised short rib is a relatively lean cut of beef, braised with most of the fat cooked off. The 5-ounce serving runs about 600 calories, Liken said — a far cry from the 1,500 calories and 141 grams of fat it's accused of.
If the Vail Daily is trying to audition to the official distribution arm of the Obama Administrations propagandistic flatulence they should've realized that the internet exists beyond the little world their article creates.
What was sure to be a five second Google search The Drudge Report uncovered that they're pissing on us and calling it rain with an extraordinary amound of patronization.
Drudge links to Livestrong.com, which has a list of "food with lots of fat".....guess what they have at the top of their list.
Other than Liken's say so there appears to be absolutely nothing that corroborates that Michelle Antoinette's meal actually was only 600 calories. Which begs the question...where does this 600 calorie short rib Kelly Liken supposedly prepares come from?!?
The exit, of course, is on the leftAdd a comment
