Not too long ago, someone commented that although they loved the political content here, my Daley Babes offended them. One reason was I “only” featured “19-year-olds”. Well I have featured women of all ages, like this lady, who is 42. I feature a wide range of women, because there are many different types of beautiful/cute/sexy/desirable women. If anyone is offended, well, too bad. Yes this blog is foremost about politics, but, I like to offer humor, sports, and yes, hot women too. I hope a wide variety of readers can find something to enjoy here. that is why Ed and I do this

 

It always amazes me when smart men like Bill Gates crave more government power

How can someone so smart be this foolish?

Via Daily Caller:

Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates, the wealthiest American, said on “some days” he wishes the U.S. political system were like England’s, so that President Barack Obama could have “slightly more power.”

Gates was asked for his assessment of President Obama’s job performance during an interview at Politico’s “Playbook Cocktails” event.

“Some days I wish we had a system like the U.K. where, you know, the party in power could do a lot and you know, you’d see how it went and then fine you could un-elect them,” said Gates on Wednesday.

“Now, over time, our system has worked slightly better than theirs, theirs has worked okay but so it’s ironic that right now it feels like I wish there was slightly more power in the presidency to avoid some of these deadlocks. So I think what he [Obama] wants to do and what he’s actually able to do, the gap is so big there that it’s hard to know in some ways.”

Good grief! Gates obviously does not keep up with how Obama has operated has he? Obama has not even tried o work with the GOP. He has either rammed through what he could, or played political games to make the GOP look like they are the problem. Count Gates among the uniformed voters!

 

Do you notice that the Left always categorizes “gun crime” as different than “other” violent crimes?

It might seem odd that the Left always wants to talk about gun crimes, gun murders, gun deaths as if putting a gun into the equation makes a violent crime less violent somehow. Personally, I do not wish to get shot, nor do I wish to  be stabbed, or beaten with a bat, or hammer, or to be jumped by a gang of thugs, a gang of NFL cheerleaders is a different story but that is a another matter altogether. The point here is that the Left cannot win the debate over guns by sticking with legitimate stats. So they use emotional appeals, or cooked statistics that are meant to make us believe that gun violence is  a raging epidemic, and that America is awash in gun deaths. Of late their tactic seems to be to segregate crimes, committed with a gun from other violent crimes committed with other weapons. Zion’s Trumpet links to Mark Steyn who explains that while the Left loves to hold the UK up as a shining example of the glorious bliss that are gun bans, the truth is that the UK is a lot more violent than America.

Between the introduction of pistol permits in 1903 and the banning of handguns after the Dunblane massacre in 1996, Britain has had a century of incremental gun control—“sensible measures that all reasonable people can agree on.” And what’s the result? Even when you factor in America’s nutcake jurisdictions with the crackhead mayors, the overall crime rate in England and Wales is higher than in all 50 states, even though over there they have more policemen per capita than in the U.S., on vastly higher rates of pay installing more video surveillance cameras than anywhere else in the Western world. Robbery, sex crimes, and violence against the person are higher in England and Wales; property crime is twice as high; vehicle theft is higher still; the British are 2.3 times more likely than Americans to be assaulted, and three times more likely to be violently assaulted. Between 1973 and 1992, burglary rates in the U.S. fell by half. In Britain, not even the Home Office’s disreputable reporting methods (if a burglar steals from 15 different apartments in one building, it counts as a single crime) can conceal the remorseless rise: Britons are now more than twice as likely as Americans to be mugged; two-thirds will have their property broken into at some time in their lives. Even more revealing is the divergent character between U.K. and U.S. property crime: In America, just over 10 percent of all burglaries are “hot burglaries”—committed while the owners are present; in Britain, it’s over half. Because of insurance-required alarm systems, the average thief increasingly concludes that it’s easier to break in while you’re on the premises. Your home-security system may conceivably make your home more safe, but it makes you less so.

Conversely, up here in the New Hampshire second congressional district, there are few laser security systems and lots of guns. Our murder rate is much lower than Britain’s and our property crime is virtually insignificant. Anyone want to make a connection? Villains are expert calculators of risk, and the likelihood of walking away uninjured with an $80 television set is too remote. In New Hampshire, a citizen’s right to defend himself deters crime; in Britain, the state-inflicted impotence of the homeowner actively encourages it. Just as becoming a drug baron is a rational career move in Colombia, so too is becoming a violent burglar in the United Kingdom. The chances that the state will seriously impede your progress are insignificant.

Now I’m Canadian, so, as you might expect, the Second Amendment doesn’t mean much to me. I think it’s more basic than that. Privately owned firearms symbolize the essential difference between your great republic and the countries you left behind. In the U.S., power resides with “we, the people” and is leased ever more sparingly up through town, county, state, and federal government. In Britain and Canada, power resides with the Crown and is graciously devolved down in limited doses. To a north country Yankee it’s self-evident that, when a burglar breaks into your home, you should have the right to shoot him—indeed, not just the right, but the responsibility, as a freeborn citizen, to uphold the integrity of your property. But in Britain and most other parts of the Western world, the state reserves that right to itself, even though at the time the ne’er-do-well shows up in your bedroom you’re on the scene and Constable Plod isn’t: He’s some miles distant, asleep in his bed, and with his answering machine on referring you to central dispatch God knows where.

Yes, I know, Liberals will screech that this piece was written over a decade ago, but, as recent stats show, the UK is still a lot more violent than America. The murder rate, burglary rate, robbery rate and stabbing rate are all much higher in the UK. Yes, I understand the Left will ignore those facts. In fact, I have heard more than one Liberal say that somehow a gun makes every crime worse. Not sure how that happens, but we are dealing with Liberals here, their arguments do not have to make sense, they just have to feel like they do to Liberals. Despite the negative impact on the feelings of liberals facts still do matter. And the fact is this. the Left has been pushing gun control for a long time, and they often use the UK as the shining example of how the UK is a more safe nation. This is simply not true

Britain’s violent crime record is worse than any other country in the European union, it has been revealed.

Official crime figures show the UK also has a worse rate for all types of violence than the U.S. and even South Africa – widely considered one of the world’s most dangerous countries.

The figures comes on the day new Home Secretary Alan Johnson makes his first major speech on crime, promising to be tough on loutish behaviour. 

The figures, compiled from reports released by the European Commission and United Nations, also show: 

  • The UK has the second highest overall crime rate in the EU.
  • It has a higher homicide rate than most of our western European neighbours, including France, Germany, Italy and Spain.
  • The UK has the fifth highest robbery rate in the EU.
  • It has the fourth highest burglary rate and the highest absolute number of burglaries in the EU, with double the number of offences than recorded in Germany and France.

But it is the naming of Britain as the most violent country in the EU that is most shocking. The analysis is based on the number of crimes per 100,000 residents.

In the UK, there are 2,034 offences per 100,000 people, way ahead of second-placed Austria with a rate of 1,677.

Less guns means less crime? No, it does not. The USA has a violent crime rate of 466 per 100,000 people. Canada, another panacea of strict gun laws has a rate of 935 per 100,000 people. In the UK, which bans guns, the rate is 2,034 per 100,000 people. FIVE TIMES the rate in America. 

This is why the Left talks only of GUN crimes, rather than violent crimes. They are lying by omission. And they KNOW they are lying. So, ask yourself this. Why? If their agenda is not truly reducing crimes, what is it? 

 

The Science of Hot Lesbians

Stacy McCain, who is neither a scientist, nor a Lesbian posts about some science that has piqued his interest.

Denial can be a powerful defense mechanism. Apparently, homophobia is too — at least according to a new study from researchers from the University of Rochester, the University of Essex, England, and the University of California in Santa Barbara.

Their research concluded that the intense fear and repulsion college-age homophobes feel toward gays and lesbians is likely due to the fact that they see similarities in themselves.

“Individuals who identify as straight but in psychological tests show a strong attraction to the same sex may be threatened by gays and lesbians because homosexuals remind them of similar tendencies within themselves,” said lead author Netta Weinstein of the University of Essex, according to Science Daily.

Interesting, of course it is true that some people do over compensate.Your anti-porn zealot who secretly plays choke the chicken in front of their PC every night. Or the prohibitionist who battles against alcoholism. Of course,this study might be outcome based , so who knows how accurate it is. But, I am very interested to find that Stacy McCain is interested in a scientific study that has lots of merit.

For many years, I’ve been working on a scientific study to confirm my hypothesis that some lesbians — the really hot ones — are in fact secretly bisexual and eager to have me join them for a threesome.

Now THAT is science I would love to delve into! Strictly for the science of course. Because science is important!

Your Marxist Morons of the Day?

Come to us via Weasel Zippers. As you read this, ask yourself this. How stupid does a person have to be to decide that the nursery rhyme Baa, Baa, Black Sheep is RAAAAACIST

(Daily Mail) — A school has been accused of political correctness after  

No political correctness

changing the words of a traditional children’s nursery rhyme.

At their Easter concert, pupils at Park Hill School swapped the word ‘black’ in Baa Baa Black Sheep for ‘little’ as they sang.

It confused parents and friends watching the performance at the fee-paying Kingston Upon Thames school.

Kingston Councillor Andrea Craig, whose son sang in the show, tweeted on the night: ‘At my son’s Easter concert I saw a song called Baa Baa Little Sheep which I assumed was new.

‘Not so – not allowed black. Really?’

The school insisted the song had been changed as a way of teaching children phonics and to fit in with the Easter theme, rather than a skewed approach to political correctness.

You can read the excuses at the link, but, frankly, the excuse given set off my BS Meter! Maybe because the Left is constantly pulling stunts like this in their crusade for “sensitivity”

Boy,those Democrats sure do love Democracy don’t they?

As long as it suits their needs it seems. Then, well……….

Peter Orszag, President Obama’s first Director of the Office of Management and Budget, has a piece in The New Republic that dips its rhetorical toe in the same authoritarian waters as Bev Perdue’s “joke”.

To solve the serious problems facing our country, we need to minimize the harm from legislative inertia by relying more on automatic policies and depoliticized commissions for certain policy decisions. In other words, radical as it sounds, we need to counter the gridlock of our political institutions by making them a bit less democratic.

Radical as it sounds? You bet. Here, let me translate that for you: “This would be an awesome country if you rubes would just lie back and think of England while your betters fix the mess you made.”

This isn’t really shocking in its scope, though. Both Orszag and Perdue are giving us an insight into the way liberals think, but its not anything that isn’t readily apparent from their actions.

Yes, they are Statists, that is the root ideology of the Left. They usually mask those ideals, but sometimes, the mask slips,and the truth emerges. Take the charge that the Tea Party is racist for example. It is BS, and the Left knows it

Incredible as it may seem, a Democrat Socialist just slipped up and accidentally told the truth.

Tainting the tea party movement with the charge of racism is proving to be an effective strategy for Democrats. There is no evidence that tea party adherents are any more racist than other Republicans, and indeed many other Americans. But getting them to spend their time purging their ranks and having candidates distance themselves should help Democrats win in November. Having one’s opponent rebut charges of racism is far better than discussing joblessness.

I’m shocked almost speechless here — not that “liberal” rabble rouser Mary Frances Berry thinks it, but that she’d say it right out loud. But how despicable is it that this bint is willing to recommend such a heinous subterfuge as a viable Democrat Socialist strategy for glomming power? Is there no depth to which these vermin won’t stoop?

NO, there is not, and it is sad that so many Americans would rather digest a steady diet of victimology, than to dine on the inherent optimism of the Founding principles!


Rumors confirmed! Formerly relevant blogger IS still on the Internet!

That former relevant blogger, now just another Leftist douchebag with an over-inflated sense of self-importance is Charles Johnson. Stacy McCain wanted to remind us that Johnson IS, indeed STILL on the net, and that he is STILL, a fool!

Excuse me for reminding you that Charles Johnson is still on the Internet. He hasn’t done anything useful in so long, you might not realize he used to be somebody important.

Here is what Chuckles posted about Michelle Bachman, who he hates because she is smarter, and far more relevant than he is
