If there was any wonder how truly $#$%ed we are when it comes to fixing our addiction to spending money Harry Reid answers that question once and for all...
“The mean-spirited bill, H.R. 1, eliminates National Public Broadcasting," said Reid in a floor speech. "It eliminates the National Endowment of the Humanities, National Endowment of the Arts. These programs create jobs. The National Endowment of the Humanities is the reason we have in northern Nevada every January a cowboy poetry festival. Had that program not been around, the tens of thousands of people who come there every year would not exist.”

Not exist? Tens of thousands of people would apparently disappear if there wasn't taxpayer funded cowboy poetry? What happens? Would they become unborn? Is the GOP trying to abort cowboy poets?
Wait a sec, tens of thousands of people show up to this thing? Are any of them actual cowboys that write poetry, or is it like the benefits of ObamaCare and its all make believe characters in one of the poems?
This is hard to believe, I mean, President Obama can't even get 100 high schools to beg him for an appearance at their graduation ceremonies. 100 times more people gather to find out what rhymes with cowboy?
Here's an idea! Its a win win, Reid can still have his festival, and Republicans don't have to be the bad guys for nailing its coffin shut. Send Obama there to read some of the poems.
Boy wouldn't that be fun? We could place bets on what he would do to embarrass the country next...here's my prediction...

So apparently do their executives! Nothing makes a man sing better than a juicy five million dollar carrot being served as dessert I guess.
I'm relieved that NPR is appalled by recent comments caught on tape of Former Senior Executive Robert Schiller calling conservatives everything but Satan's barnacles. I would be appalled too if I got caught with my hand in the liberal bias fat free cookie jar.
Between what they did to Juan Williams and now this maybe liberals have a crush on Allah.
One thing is certain, NPR is not appalled about anything. They're embarrassed. Executives with five million dollar checks being dangled in front of their noses don't tow any line that wasn't handed to them at some point by someone higher up.
Which begs the question, other than a thorough butt sniffing from Robert Schiller what would Muslims get if they gave a REAL five million dollar check to NPR?
Whatever they want?
Another one knocked out of the park from YouTube user Battlefield315.
A couple of months ago I was flipping through channels and came across this panel discussion on CNN. I caught it near the end so I had no idea what they were talking about.
I did, however, nearly hurl after hearing some idiot celebrity tart on the panel say that she was a progressive, thus SHE believed in "progress." Right, as opposed to everyone else on the planet who isn't her intellectual clone. WE all wake up every morning wondering how we can bring the world to apocalyptic destruction.
It's a wonder liberals don't resolve in one of their meetings to just don capes, they go on enough about themselves saving the world. Now they believe they have a monopoly on "progress."
When I refer to "progressives" in my posts I always try to make sure there are quotes, because that label is based entirely on their say so. If liberalism was really so self evident in its righteousness they wouldn't need to run from it.
They want to be "progressive?" Fine, from now on I'm going to start doing more than just use quotes to point out the absurdity of this notion by pointing out their only real contribution to it...
In California we have similar signs for illegal immigrants, so it's almost the same thing...
Wisconsin keeps their eyes peeled for the politicians, we look out for their constituents.
I don't normally (or ever) do this, but I got an idea to add to it to make the whole thing a bit more...comprehensive for road safety sake.
Protesters in Madison have "aroused a sleeping giant" in the national fight for workers' rights, filmmaker Michael Moore told thousands at the Capitol Square on Saturday, as rallies opposing Gov. Scott Walker's budget proposals wrapped up their third week....
"America is not broke ... Wisconsin is not broke," Moore said. "The only thing that's broke is the moral compass of the rulers."

A "sleeping giant" was aroused?!? I'm confused, I'll explain why in Pulp Fiction style:
First of all, Boobs...check...liberal ideology....check...did I not just say a fat lady is singing?
Second, assuming his skin down there didn't already naturally crawl up into himself and connect with his newly lady parts (as clearly stated as a medical side effect when one registers Democrat) wouldn't a lack of circulation have caused it to fall off a long time ago?
Thirdly, for the sake of argument how could Moore possibly even know he's "aroused"? I'm just sayin'...when I come home from the grocery store and I insist on bringing all the bags in on the first trip my fingers become NUMB....
Isn't that what it would be like to be Michael Moore's penis?
Being a dick doesn't mean you get to pretend you still have one
And what's this crap about America not being broke?

At the very least he's definitely jealous of the wealth of praise the one who does all the work is getting, he must believe that if it got spread around it would be good for everybody...
Maybe I'm just overly sensitive because my wife just gave birth...*sniff*Add a comment

Suddenly Obama doesn't seem so unqualified...
Top Senate Democrats sought to recruit Ken Jennings to challenge Utah Sen. Orrin Hatch (R) back in 2004, the "Jeopardy!" contestant revealed Thursday.
Jennings is famous for holding the record for consecutive wins on the quiz show. His streak of 74 straight victories brought him to the attention of the Democratic Senate leadership in 2004.....
Jennings continued: "I am not making this up. Win on a game show and you can apparently run for the US Senate. That was when I realized the Democratic Party was f@#$ed in '04."

According to the article Harry Reid and Chuck Schumer PERSONALLY reached out to Jennings to run. Do you think Sharon Angle would've won if she was able to run ads showing how Reid thought a game show contestant could do what he does?
I would've loved to have seen that debate...
Jennings: What is capitalism?
Jennings: What is that's my answer...
Hatch: To...the moderator's, question?
Jennings: What is Harry Reid wanted me to find out for him?
Hatch: Well I believe you were asked if you support the war on terror?
Jennings: What is can't you just freakin' ask me about stuff that ends in "urple"?
Hatch: Citizens of Utah I look forward to serving another term as your senator.
Jennings: What is WHERE THE F**K IS MY BUZZER?!?
That's Democrats view of leadership for you. Become famous for knowing stuff like the names of craters on the moon and that can be your golden ticket to becoming a cog in the machine that makes trillion dollar deficits.Add a comment
