Everyone should be able to guess Sen. Murphy’s NRA rating. Nearly a third of the press releases the Senator has sent out since he took the oath of office in January have had NRA in the headline, as he’s made it his mission to take on the powerful pro-gun lobby. The latest: Murphy Urges NASCAR to Reverse Decision To Name New Race NRA 500.
Murphy wrote to NASCAR CEO Brian France Thursday asking him to knock the NRA off the sponsor list for the Sprint Cup Race Series in April. NRA is the title sponsor of the race, which will be named the NRA 500. Murphy told France that post-Newtown, aligning yourself with such an extreme position on guns is insensitive to the people of Newtown and puts you at odds with the the ‘overwhelming majority’ of the American public.
“Why take sides against the families of Newtown, Connecticut, by teaming up with the NRA in the middle of an intense legislative fight over gun laws?” Murphy asked.
Well, poll after polls how the NRA MORE popular than the gun grabbing nut jobs like Murphy, and, frankly, many NRA members would have tried their level best to protect those kids at that school. They only one playing politics here is Sen. Murphy, who would be ashamed of himself if he was not so morally retarded.
Stacy McCain opines today that everyone hates Piers Morgan
The petition to deport Piers Morgan is now nearing 90,000 signatures— which is what I’d call “a gpod start” — and this groundswell of antipathy to being lectured by a smarmy Brit on CNN has now reached America’s youth, including Michael Butler at The High School Conservative:
Piers Morgan “has a case of the sads” over the deportation petition, tweeting things such as “Ironic U.S. gun rights campaign to deport me for ‘attacking 2nd amendment rights’ – is my opinion not protected under 1st amendment rights?” One witty twitter user responded with “You ignore the Constitution, why shouldn’t they?” For those of you wondering if we really can deport Piers Morgan for being stupid, we can. James Taranto of the Wall Street Journal explains, “Your opinion is protected, your presence in the U.S. is not. See Kleindienst v. Mandel (1972).” . . .
There is also a response petition from British citizens which reads, “We got rid of him once and why should we have to suffer again. The Americans wanted him so they should put up with him. We washed our hands of him a long time ago.
McCain goes on to suggest we send Piers to France, or Canada. Hmmm, I can see Morgan in a beret, in fact, he sort of looks like he is wearing one when you watch him on CNN, if you are among the 77 people who do. He has that air of arrogance, that air of self-importance, and that accent, which is super hot on a woman (think Julia Ormond, Emma Samms, Kate Beckinsale or Kate Winslet), but on a man? But, to be fair here, not everyone hates Piers, just those that have heard him and his snooty drivel. Poor Piers, he just does not understand that when you start berating people who own guns, and criticizing the Bible, lots of folks will hold it against you. And guess what Piers, that First Amendment you are so worried about? It also grants us, the right to criticize you.
This piece by The Lonely Conservative got me thinking. She points out, rightly, that the Cloward-Piven strategy worked in last week’s French and Greek elections.
Most people who believe in freedom and free markets are probably wondering how on Earth France could have voted in an openly socialist president, and the Greeks voted Neo-Nazis into power. Don’t these people realize how perilous their situation is? Why would they vote this way, rather than vote for politicians who will cut spending, cut government debt and put their countries on a path to solvency and economic prosperity?
The answer is simple. They are voting for politicians who have promised to keep the gravy train rolling, consequences be damned. It’s the Cloward-Piven strategy in action – get enough people on the government dole and they will vote to keep the benefits they’ve grown used to.
BINGO! I have believed for a while now that this is the NUMBER ONE aim of the Democrats here in America. Like a crack dealer they seek to make as man of us as dependent upon government as possible. They know, that once hooked, the people will be very loathe to break the cycle of dependence. Now, consider how Obama and the Democrats have increased government jobs the last three plus years. Think of how much they have hammered the class warfare rhetoric. And it will not end in 2017 if Obama is reelected either. This is a long-term strategy to keep Liberals in power for decades.
Once the government provides jobs, or benefits for a majority of Americans, then there will likely be no turning back. As government dependence grows, people will feel an increased pressure to continue to vote Democrat. And need I say where that road eventually leads?
Smitty notes that the French voters have voted to double down on Socialism
According to Breitbart, Nicolas the Short has been ousted in favor of Francois Holland. Holland seems to favor:
- raise taxes (including a marginal tax rate for earnings above $1 million to 75%),
- lower retirement age, and
- boost spending levels
Well, because it is easy, I mean they wear Berets and talk funny. Also, it is safe, because no one from France will kick your butt for doing it, I mean they wear Berets! Lastly, it is fun, I mean they wear Berets!! Just ask Chris at Wyblog who is more afraid of literate baboons, because they do NOT wear Berets.
Dan the baboon sits in front of a computer screen. The letters BRRU pop up. With a quick and almost dismissive tap, the monkey signals it’s not a word. Correct. Next comes, ITCS. Again, not a word. Finally KITE comes up.
He pauses and hits a green oval to show it’s a word. In the space of just a few seconds, Dan has demonstrated a mastery of what some experts say is a form of pre-reading and walks away rewarded with a treat of dried wheat.
Dan is part of new research that shows baboons are able to pick up the first step in reading — identifying recurring patterns and determining which four-letter combinations are words and which are just gobbledygook.
The study shows that reading’s early steps are far more instinctive than scientists first thought and it also indicates that non-human primates may be smarter than we give them credit for.
“They’ve got the hang of this thing,” said Jonathan Grainger, a French scientist and lead author of the research.
Sure, this week they give him some dried wheat. Next week? Next week he gets a rifle. The French immediately surrender. Then we find out Dan’s real name is Dr. Zaius.
Where’s Charlton Heston when you need him?
Yeah, go ahead, laugh now, but when we are fighting monkeys in the streets, we will know who to blame won’t we? Yeah, those beret-wearing Frenchmen!
