2,000 dead mice parachute on to Guam, Hank Johnson hardest hit

Tylenol laced mice huh?

They floated down from the sky Sunday — 2,000 mice, wafting on tiny cardboard parachutes over Andersen Air Force Base in the U.S. territory of Guam.

But the rodent commandos didn’t know they were on a mission: to help eradicate the brown tree snake, an invasive species that has caused millions of dollars in wildlife and commercial losses since it arrived a few decades ago.

That’s because they were dead. And pumped full of painkillers.

The unlikely invasion was the fourth and biggest rodent air assault so far, part of an $8 million U.S. program approved in February to eradicate the snakes and save the exotic native birds that are their snack food.

“Every time there is a technique that is tested and shows promise, we jump on that bandwagon and promote it and help out and facilitate its implementation,” Tino Aguon, acting chief of the U.S. Agriculture Department’s wildlife resources office for Guam, told NBC station KUAM of Hagatna.

It’s not just birds the government is trying to protect. It’s also money.

Andersen, like other large industrial complexes on the Western Pacific island, is regularly bedeviled by power failures caused when the snakes wriggle their way into electric substations — an average of 80 a year, costing as much as $4 million in annual repair costs and lost productivity, the Interior Department estimated in 2005.

The U.S. has tried lots of ways to eliminate the snakes, which it says likely arrived in an inadequately inspected cargo shipment sometime in the 1950s.

Snake traps, snake-sniffing dogs and snake-hunting inspectors have all helped control the population, but the snakes have proved especially hardy and now infest the entire island. Guam is home to an estimated 2 million of the reptiles, which in some areas reach a density of 13,000 per square mile — more concentrated than even in the Amazonian rainforests, the government says.

But brown tree snakes have an Achilles’ heel: Tylenol.

So, the Tylenol in the dead mice will kill the snakes they say, but, I wonder has anyone warned Rep Hank Johnson about this? He will no doubt worry that the mice might, well, make Guam, tip over

 

Keith Ellison Bottom Feeder

He is so sorry, I mean really sorry that you stupid Americans misunderstood Dear Leader when he told you a bald-faced lie over and again!

Despicable little man, what an absolute disgrace. I cannot fathom how he can look himself in the mirror frankly! It is one thing to disagree on policy, but to lie, knowing you are lying, knowing you are defending lies, and knowing you have pushed through a law that is HURTING PEOPLE? Sorry, but that is evil, and such a person should be thrown out of office.

 

Offendeditis Outbreak after students learn something on Veterans’ Day

Via Bob Owens at Bearing Arms, and good for the principal for standing strong

Charlotte’s NBC outlet is pushing their anti-gun, anti-military agenda using the excuse of one middle school parent who was angry that a Rock Hill, SC Middle School Veterans Day appearance by active duty soldiers featured several unloaded military weapons.

The principal of Saluda Trail Middle School in Rock Hill is defending the decision to let students hold military weapons during a Veterans Day program at the school last week.

A parent complained after pictures of two students holding weapons were posted on the eighth grade school blog.

In each picture a member of the military is next to the student.

The parent thought, that in light of recent school shootings, it was inappropriate.

Principal Brenda Campbell disagreed.

“Those guns are completely no ammo. They had been checked out by the military themselves, who brought them into our school,” Campbell said.

She said it was all part of a larger Veterans Day program, where students could learn military history and meet and talk with real members of the military and with elderly veterans.

“It is kind of hard to teach students about veterans, and the military, and the history of patriotism without there being some weapons involved,” said Campbell.

I cannot believe it, some actual common sense in a school! Now, as Bob also points out, North Carolina grocers are also standing up to anti-gun nut cases!

In North Carolina, you’ve been able to open carry or concealed carry a handgun in most stores, including grocery stores, for years.

The Gunwire has found must-see video of two self-important, self-absorbed gun haters who are boycotting a local grocery chain, Harris-Teeter, because one of them was angry that her local store manager didn’t kick out an open carrier who was peacefully shopping.

The duo’s protests has been largely ignored, and they’ve responded by saying they aren’t going to shop in any grocery stores where guns are allowed.

Idiots!

 

President Obama redefines lying

At American Power, Donald Douglas links this piece at the Wall Street Journal and makes this observation about the “apology”

He didn’t really apologize, actually. It’s more like he feels sorry that people got screwed, not that he’s sorry for actually screwing people. It’s a few huge difference and people have noticed.

No, he did not apologize, he is, once again, refusing to step up and take any responsibility for the harm his “signature” legislation is causing. Consider this from the WSJ

The president’s comments marked a departure from his previous defense of the law and his oft-repeated vow that “if you like your plan, you can keep your plan.” Before Thursday, he had stood by his words, while adding some caveats. He had argued that the small percentage of people forced to buy new coverage would find more comprehensive plans in the new marketplace.

About 15.4 million people—about 5% of the population—are covered by individual health plans. Industry experts have said many of them will see their policies terminated by the end of the year as insurers switch to plans that comply with the health law.

Mr. Obama repeated Thursday that only a small percentage of Americans were seeing their plans canceled, but he acknowledged it was “scary” for those people and conceded the law was responsible for their situation. “Obviously, we didn’t do a good enough job in terms of how we crafted the law,” he said. “That’s something that we’re going to do everything we can to get fixed.”

That is a bald-faced lie and nothing more. Obama KNEW, that the HHS regulations would so narrowly define the grandfather clause in Obamacare that any change, no matter how minute, in existing insurance policies would make those policies illegal. He knew this, yet he continued to lie, and continued to lie, even after NBC News and others exposed the lie. This “apology” is as phony as it gets. Obama could have “fixed” this by not allowing the HHS to over regulate the grandfather clause. Sorry but this is nothing more than Obama going back into campaign mode. 

 

Why can’t you keep the health plan Obama said you could keep?

Weasel Zippers lays it out

We were the first to report on how the NBC story exposing the Obama administration knowledge of cancellations was pulled, then edited, then edited again.

There was a critical paragraph that was edited out, but then added back in after a furor.

What was the provision that was deleted and then added back?

None of this should come as a shock to the Obama administration. The law states that policies in effect as of March 23, 2010 will be “grandfathered,” meaning consumers can keep those policies even though they don’t meet requirements of the new health care law. But the Department of Health and Human Services then wrote regulations that narrowed that provision, by saying that if any part of a policy was significantly changed since that date — the deductible, co-pay, or benefits, for example — the policy would not be grandfathered.

Why is this critical, and why was it edited?

Because that means the law doesn’t actually dictate the cancellation of the policies, the cancellations are dictated by the HHS regulations, narrowing the law.

Regulations are completely and utterly within the power and control of HHS, Obama and the executive branch. What that means is they could change it if they wanted to, and that it was completely their choice to do this, despite Obama lying about it.

They dictated these cancellations because they want to drive people into the exchanges, because it is the only possible way to monetarily sustain the system, or it would collapse under its own weight.

So while Obama is lying to people, he is completely dictating the cancellations through his administration.

This is the twisted nature of the President we have.

So, tell me again about the wonders of Hope and Change there comrade.

 

Great News! RNC Officially Bans Republican Candidates From CNN And NBC Primary Debates

RNC Officially Bans Republican Candidates From CNN And NBC Primary Debates – Daily Caller

The Republican National Committee voted on a strategy on Friday to try to prevent Republican presidential candidates from participating in 2016 primary debates with CNN and NBC.

.
……….

In an unanimous vote at the committee’s summer meeting in Boston, the committee vowed to not partner with CNN and NBC for debates if they don’t drop their planned productions on potential Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, which they call “little more than extended commercials.”

NBC Entertainment says it plans to produce a miniseries on the former secretary of state. CNN has announced plans to produce a documentary on Clinton.

Here is the resolution language adopted by the RNC:

RESOLUTION IN SUPPORT OF MEDIA OBJECTIVITY AND ACCOUNTABILITY AND OF AN ORDERLY PRESIDENTIAL PRIMARY DEBATE PROCESS

WHEREAS, former Secretary Hillary Clinton is likely to run for President in 2016, and CNN and NBC have both announced programming that amounts to little more than extended commercials promoting former Secretary Clinton; and

WHEREAS, these programming decisions are an attempt to show political favoritism and put a thumb on the scales for the next presidential election; and

WHEREAS, airing this programming will jeopardize will the credibility of CNN and NBC as supposedly unbiased news networks and undermine the perceived objectivity of the coverage of the 2016 presidential campaign by these networks; and

WHEREAS, Robert Greenblatt, Chairman of NBC Entertainment, contributed the maximum amount to Hillary Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign committee, contributed $25,000 to Obama’s 2012 Victory Fund, and this year contributed $10,000 to the Democratic National Committee; therefore be it –

RESOLVED, that the Republican National Committee calls on CNN and NBC to cancel the airing of these political ads masked as unbiased entertainment; and, be it further

RESOLVED, that if CNN and NBC continue to move forward with this and other such programming, the Republican National Committee will neither partner with these networks in the 2016 presidential primary debates nor sanction any primary debates they sponsor, and, be it finally

RESOLVED, that the Republican National Committee shall endeavor to bring more order to the primary debates and ensure a reasonable number of debates, appropriate moderators and debate partners are chosen, and that other issues pertaining to the general nature of such debates are addressed.

Well I guess giving a gig to a vile, Homophobic bully with temper tantrum issues IS OK with MSNBS!

Donald Douglas gives us the news

Alec Baldwin, Left Wing nut case, abusive parent, Homophobe, and, now MSNBS host

Pat Dollard nails it, “Racist Homophobe Alec ‘Coon’ Baldwin Set to Host New MSNBC Primetime Show.”

Also at Twitchy, “Bring it on: Toxic little tweeters rush to name Alec Baldwin’s MSNBC show.”

Oh he will fit in perfectly. Another bigot with their own show

 

It is good to be hated

I know, that sounds way off base, but allow Bob Belvedere to explain

From Newsbusters, Noel Sheppard reporting, we learn [tip of the fedora to Rareand Smitty]:

NBC’s Chuck Todd told an inconvenient truth about Barack Obama on Sunday’sMeet the Press.

“The rise of the internet media and social media and all that stuff – he  hates it”

You know, this past five years have been tough for all of us who love and cherish our freedom and liberties.  It’s been damn depressing, too.  So it’s nice to know that the King Of Rat Bastards really hates us.  We must be doing something right.

And, as Mr. Sheppard writes:

Todd was likely quite correct, but chose not to disclose why Obama hates new  media. It’s because most of it isn’t in the tank for this President and can’t be  controlled by him.

I consider this a badge of honor. We must be doing something right!

 

Political has been heart broken Congress did not pass gun control after Newtown

Ah Peggy Noonan, who continues to get air time even though she is well past relevant

On this weekend’s broadcast of NBC’s “Meet the Press,” Wall Street Journal op-ed columnist Peggy Noonan said Congress has betrayed the public trust after the Newtown, Conn. elementary school massacre.

“I think a big part of this story is that people don’t trust Congress,” Noonan said. “After Newtown, there was a great bubbling feeling of, my goodness, there must be at least some things we can do legislatively to make this whole gun situation better. If the Congress, if the Senate had moved quickly on discrete, small bills having to do with background checks — I mean quickly, in the weeks after Newtown … They failed to move quick and small.”

I wonder what “small” gun grabbing bills Noonan would ask for. She mentions background checks, which we already have. Maybe she thinks the feds should stick their nose into every private gun sale? Such a bill would hurt the law-abiding and do nothing to stop criminals.

Not to mention that Congress really should NOT “move fast”. Thomas Jefferson certainly would not be a fan of that. Bills passed quickly are antithetical to liberty and open government. Frankly bills ought to take a long time, so the people can know what is in them and have their say.

Harry Reid is still a despicable troll

Senator Weasel Dick earning his nickname

On the Senate floor on Tuesday morning, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid appeared to suggest that military training exercises — like the one that led to the deaths of seven Marines at the Hawthorne Army Depot – are compromised by the automatic sequestration cuts, prompting immediate criticism from Marine officials.

“Mr. President, it’s very important we continue training our military — so important,” Reid said. “But one of the things in the sequester is we need to cut back in training and maintenance. That’s the way sequester was written.”

Of course, the  Marines have a different story

Later in the day on “Andrea Mitchell Reports” on MSNBC, NBC Pentagon correspondent Jim Miklaszewski indicated that there had been some pushback from Marine officials.

“Luke [Russert], you opened that segment with a sound bite from Senate Majority Leader Democrat Harry Reid expressing his condolences,” Miklaszewski said . But also during that statement, there was an implication there that under sequestration, when budgets are cut, that we may see more of these — that it may put the Marines and others and soldiers at risk because of the budget cuts.”

“Now I can tell you, Marine Corps officials this afternoon are taking a strong exception to what Harry Reid implied, saying that this this exercise, for example, was planned well in advance, had nothing to do with the budget cuts,” he continued. “There were no corners cut. And if they couldn’t afford to have all the safety precautions into place, they wouldn’t do the exercise. And in fact, one Marine Corps told us just, one Marine Corps official told us a short time ago, he considers this nothing but pure political posturing on the backs of these dead Marines.”

What a political hack Reid is, truly a disgarce

 

 

So where is news made these days?

The Liberal Consensus Factory of course!

Otherwise known as the news media:

In the wake of the horrific school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut on December 14, the Big Three (ABC, CBS, NBC) networks quickly moved to exploit the tragedy to push for more gun control legislation while mostly ignoring solutions that respect gun owners’ Second Amendment rights.  . . .
Stories advocating more gun control outnumbered stories opposing gun control by 99 to 12, or a ratio of 8 to 1.

And they wonder why we think they are biased?

 

NBC news president sh#@ canned

Via Stacy McCain

The New York Times spins it this way:

The longest-serving president of any of the three network news divisions, Steve Capus of NBC News, stepped down from his position on Friday, six months after Comcast restructured its news units in a way that diminished his authority.

Exactly how voluntary was this “stepping down”? John Nolte points to the scandal-plagued tenure of Capus at NBC News:

  1. During last year’s presidential election, Andrea Mitchell wascaught manufacturing a Romney gaffe where none existed.
  2. During last year’s GOP primary, Ed Schultz edited video of Texas Governor Rick Perry to make him look racist.
  3. In April of last year, the “Today Show” was caught editing audio of a 9-1-1 call to make George Zimmerman look racist.
  4. In August of 2009, Contessa Brewer sliced and diced a photograph so it wouldn’t look like a black man attended a Tea Party carrying a firearm.
  5. Just this week, NBC News maliciously edited video of a town council meeting to make it look as though Second Amendment civil rights activists heckled a parent who lost his son in Newtown.

The news is only important if it means NBC is going to actually restore journalistic standards to its news coverage, which, IMO, wold mean firing Andrea Mitchell, Contessa Brewer, Ed Schultz, and anyone else who committed these acts of journalistic malpractice. Otherwise, it is absolutely meaningless.

 

How would this story have ended in Liberal Utopian America?

Likely not very well

A group of college students said they are lucky to be alive and they’re thanking the quick-thinking of one of their own. Police said a fellow student shot and killed one of two masked me who burst into an apartment.

Channel 2 Action News reporter Tom Jones met with one of the students to talk about the incident.

“Apparently, his intent was to rape and murder us all,” said student Charles Bailey.

Bailey said he thought it was the end of his life and the lives of the 10 people inside his apartment for a birthday party after two masked men with guns burst in through a patio door.

“They just came in and separated the men from the women and said, ‘Give me your wallets and cell phones,’” said George Williams of the College Park Police Department.

Bailey said the gunmen started counting bullets. “The other guy asked how many (bullets) he had. He said he had enough,” said Bailey.

That’s when one student grabbed a gun out of a backpack and shot at the invader who was watching the men. The gunman ran out of the apartment.

The student then ran to the room where the second gunman, identified by police as 23-year-old Calvin Lavant, was holding the women.

“Apparently the guy was getting ready to rape his girlfriend. So he told the girls to get down and he started shooting. The guy jumped out of the window,” said Bailey.

How about this story?

Via Time:

A 12-year-old Oklahoma girl took extreme measures to protect herself when an unfamiliar man broke into her home last Wednesday. The girl, who was home alone during a day off from school, shot and wounded the home intruder, local NBC affiliate KTEN News reports.

Kendra St. Clair, was home by herself when a man rang the doorbell to her Bryan County, Okla., home. She didn’t answer, so the trespasser walked to the back of the house and kicked open a door. St. Clair called her mother, who advised her to grab the family’s gun and hide, according to an interview she gave to local broadcaster KFOR-TV. Authorities said that the girl found the gun and took shelter in a bathroom closet.

“I was sitting there in the closet, really scared, holding the gun, not knowing what was going to happen,” St. Clair told KFOR-TV.
I want to hear from these gun grabbing zealots on this. You want to ban guns, you want them locked up, so it takes the person, in this case a child, minutes to get the gun unlocked?

 

Why yes, Mr. President, there will be resistance

To the “you knew this was coming” gun grab effort by the Left, an effort that Stacy McCain notes Obama has vowed to put his weight behind

Never let a crisis go to waste:

Recalling the shooting of 20 first graders as the worst day of his presidency, President Barack Obama on Sunday pledged to put his “full weight” behind a legislative package next year aimed at containing gun violence.
In an interview with NBC’s “Meet the Press,” Obama voiced skepticism about proposals to place armed guards at schools in the aftermath of the Dec. 14 deadly assault at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn. . . .
Obama said he intended to press the issue with the public. . . .
“Will there be resistance? Absolutely there will be resistance,” he said.
“The question then becomes whether we are actually shook up enough by what happened here that it does not just become another one of these routine episodes where it gets a lot of attention for a couple of weeks and then it drifts away. It certainly won’t feel like that to me. This is something that – you know, that was the worst day of my presidency. And it’s not something that I want to see repeated.

Note that Obama discounted the idea of armed security in schools. That is no surprise, , Liberals have all ridiculed,  the suggestion of armed guards. Not because they do not think it will work, but because they want stricter gun laws. For them this is about getting legislation they want, and not about protecting kids.

 

Bob Schieffer=STUPID

Good grief. The Left is good at redefining words, and phrases. When it comes to guns, and gun control, the Left throws the term semi-automatic around constantly. They also invented the term “assault weapon”. They do this to create, in the minds of the public, images. Images of machine guns, spewing hundreds or rounds in seconds. these images frighten people. Then the Left comes along and says “Look what the NRA supports! They support everyone owning these semi-automatic weapons”. And meaningful debate on the topic is therefore largely destroyed, and replaced with hyperbole and emotional arguments, which benefits the Left. This video illustrates how ignorant the media is on the terms the Left has redefined

Fully automatic weapons (machine guns) have been illegal for 78 years now. Semi-automatic guns accurately describes most of the guns in this nation. You pull the trigger, the gun fires a round, and chambers the next round, you pull the trigger, the weapon fires again, and so on. It is sad that most Americans get suckered in by the misleading rhetoric of the Left, and even sadder that newsmen like Schieffer do not bother to educate themselves on the topic. This is yet another clear example of why the Left pushes for government-run schools, and mandatory Kindergarten, and preaches that everyone has a “right” to a college education. they want to indoctrinate as many Americans as possible. And they want to teach kids NOT to think, but to emote. they want to teach kids NOT to be pro-active, but to be reactive. The less intelligent the populace, the easier it is for the Left to win elections, and ideological debates.

 

What the mainstream media never reports

Defensive uses of firearms might make local news, but the national headlines never feature these stories, yes that also includes YOU Fox News. Imagine how the national attitude might differ if thee stories were reported.

Resident shoots, kills armed intruder

Man shoots two armed intruders killing one

Utah Pastor uses his gun to fend off, subdue attacker

North Carolina man fires at man invading his home

Concealed carry holder fires at two armed men, sends them running

Homeowner shoots, kills convicted sex offender during home invasion

Ohio Homowner shoots, kills burglar

Texas man shoots knife wielding home invader

More here

And Here Guns Save Lives has a map of many more defensive gun uses almost 700 stories are in their files

Of course these stories of average Americans stopping crimes, and many saving their lives are not reported by CNN, or MSNBC, or CBS, ABC, NBC, or even Fox. In researching crime stats, I found estimates of defensive gun uses, the lowest number I found was 108,000 per year, that adds up to almost 300 per day! But, these stories do not get told do they? Liberals love to discount any chance of am armed citizen using a gun to defend themselves, they also love to pretend that having a gun, or carrying one is dangerous, and will lead to Wild West shootouts. These stories disprove that malarky. Of all the people I have known, most had guns, heck in the South, guns are part of just about every home, and no bad ever comes  from the vast majority of those guns, or gun owners .

Trace Adkins: Yeah, I am a proud descendant of Confederate soldiers, so what?

I admire Adkins for not cowing to the Political Correctors who will do anything so as not to offend anyone at any time!

Trace Adkins refuses to apologize for using an earpiece emblazoned with the Confederate flag during a national TV appearance.

The burly country crooner sang during the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree lighting special, telecast Wednesday on NBC. He used an earpiece decorated with the Southern flag during his performance, a decision which caused some Twitter users to express outrage over his decision. 

Adkins addressed the matter on his blog.

“As a proud American I object to oppression of any kind.

To me, the battle flag represents remembrance of my Southern lineage – I am a descendant of Confederate soldiers who followed that flag into battle.

I advocate for the preservation of America’s battlefields and honest conversation about our Country’s history.

To those who view the flag as a symbol of racism, that was not my message and I did not intend offense.”

 

Standing strong! I, like Adkins will not shy away from defending my heritage, EVER! Anyone who disagrees, contact me, we can chat about it, but I will not allow PC, or biased history, yes, some taught by good Conservatives to silence what I know is the truth! Just as I will defend America to the last, I will also gladly defend my ancestors that wore gray.

 

Why does the Left see the decline of middle class White Christians as a blessing?

Alec Baldwin is gleeful after the election, and apparently he is euphoric over what he sees as the decline of White middle class Christians

The politically progressive actor rejoiced at President Barack Obama’s re-election precisely because it means his demographic, to his eyes, is politically on its last legs.

“Obama’s election signaled one change. His re-election signaled another — the end of white, middle-aged Christian male dominance,” the star of NBC’s “30 Rock” tweeted Saturday through his “Alec Baldwin Foundation” account.

Baldwin joins a long list of white liberals who eagerly use their own race as a pejorative

Yes, think of all the times the Left, often White Liberals, use terms like “lily White” or vanilla, or Cracker as if White is bad? I had a professor in college, in an American Sign Language class who called me white bread and peanut butter, as in stale, boring, and uninteresting. And yes, she was White. She was also overbearing and rude, a fact I shared with her and the whole class after her remark. I had another professor, in a Sociology course that told a story of Native Americans allowing a child to beat them in races. He then asked, in a serious tone, if any of us could imagine White people ever doing such a thing. And, yes, he was as White as they come. Most people in the class were stunned at his question, and we gave example after example of how our families had done similar things, I imagine people of all races do these things myself.

I have never understood this side of the Left, until today, I was thinking of Baldwin’s remarks, and  it hit me, the Left, and Baldwin is certainly a Leftist, have a very perverse definition of equality. In their view, White Americans, of all socioeconomic classes have it better and easier than minorities. So, there is some inherent inequality there that the Left must put right. Usually, that inequality is, in the mind of the Left, racism, sexism, or the evils of Capitalism, which is evil because it produces not just winners and losers, but different levels of winners as well. Of course, America itself is an easy target for the Left to blame. America has been a nation with a White majority, a nation where most are Christian, and where Capitalism has been the economic system for decades upon decades. And all of those things make America bad because America has inequality.

Of course, every nation has inequality, every nation always has, and always will, but the Left cannot tolerate inequality. This is why they can look at the Israel Palestine conflict and so readily sympathize with Palestine.  Terror groups in Palestine attack Israel, targeting civilians, and the Left says nothing. But, when Israel, uses its military to strike back, targeting ONLY terrorists, and doing everything it can not to harm civilians, the Left goes ballistic. They find it unfair, because Israel has far superior weapons, they have even called for Israel to only use “fairness” in retaliating. Fairness, in this case, means that if a rocket fired into Israel kills two Israelis, Israel should only kill two terrorists. Of course such a course will only lead to a longer, bloodier fight, but, it appeases the insensibilities of the left. But back to America and Baldwin’s inane comments.

Alec Baldwin and the Left see America as a bad nation. We are richer than other nations, we are more powerful than other nations, we have a higher standard of living and more prosperity than other nations, this is not fair, it is a clear case of inequality to the Leftist mind. This explains why the Left, if you notice, NEVER encourages poor nations to emulate America, or other Western nations. A sane person would think that teaching the less successful nations to copy the economies and governments of the West would lead at least some of those less wealthy nations to a more prosperous existence. Yet, the Left always wants to punish the more successful nations, especially America. They see this as more fair, because, even if some of the less successful nations raise themselves up, they still might be unequal to the West, and that equals inequality in Leftist thinking.

So, therefore, the Left prefers to use their “redistribute the wealth” strategy to make things more equal. All this will ever do is to tear down the West, and instead of spreading the wealth, it will spread the misery instead, but, that is more desirable to the Left, because it means all nations will be more equal.

So, Alec Baldwin, and the Left hate inequality, and thus hate America, and thus hate the people they associate with America’s rise as the world power, White, Christian men. What they miss in their hatred is that America has not become great because of skin color, or religion, but because of freedom, and opportunity. In other words it is not the skin color of the Founders, it is their ideals that set forth the successful nation the Left has been trying to tear down for 200 plus years.

 

A note to Joe Scarborough

 

Joe, Joe, Joe, you ignorant ass. Let’s see if we can get this straight. Your network, MSNBS, has quite the history of being dishonest in their reporting, even doctoring video and audio at times. YOU got busted doing that, and now you are throwing a hissy fit at those bloggers that are exposing your BS? I saw at Dan Riehl’s blog some comments you made

If that’s what he wants, we should give it to him.

Calling them “Cheetos-eaters living in their mothers basements,” Joe Scarborough, angered by criticism by conservative bloggers of a segment on last weeks Morning Joe, has told them to boycott the show. Via NewsBusters.org.

Unfortunately, the latest ratings don’t provide an air time. If there is anyone out here watching it who isn’t watching a recording  because they’re paid to watch it as a media monitor of some sort,  you could really help out the boycott effort by letting conservatives know what time it actually airs. I’d hate to tune in accidentally while flipping channels, or something, and violate the boycott.

Now Joe, to me boycotting your show is distasteful, for one thing, I do not like boycotts all that much. For another, our network, MSNBS is what I lie to call the Tree of Low-Hanging Blogging Fruit. That means that any blogger can find oodles of content to blog about anytime they check out MSNBS. By the way Joe, those sad ratings you have, I hope you realize WHO is tuning in to your show, and every other show on your network. There are people like me, picking from the Tree of Low-Hanging Blogging Fruit, and then, there are the buffoons that actually believe the lies MSNBS spews everyday. that IS your audience Joe. You have the nut jobs, and you have those that tune in to mock you.

Now, one more thing Joe, I must correct your definition of what bloggers are. Yes some of us DO eat Cheetos, and other snacks, but I rarely do that while blogging. For one reason that orange stuff gums up the keyboard, and for another, I could choke on a Cheeto while laughing at the idiocy that flows from your network. And let’s be honest here. No blogger wants to become a blog headline that reads “Blogger chokes on Cheetos, Morning Joe’s laughable content to blame!” That would be humiliating, sort of like it would be humiliating to be a former Congressman who works for MSNBS. OK, choking on Cheetos is not THAT bad Joe, but you get my point.

And, the comment about getting out of our mother’s basement? Come on Joe! Can’t you be more original? Or here is a better idea, just try being an honest commentator Joe.

 

NBC coverage of Olympics causes outbreak of Offendeditis, Racial Obsession Syndrome

Offendeditis: A Liberal Malady, diagnosed by Doug Hagin, that causes sufferers to constantly be offended, often over nothing. Most commonly associated with Liberals. Most of those afflicted seem happy only when they are offended.

Racial Obsession Syndrome (R.O.S.): A Liberal Malady, first discovered and diagnosed by Doug Hagin, that causes those afflicted, usually Liberals, to see racism everywhere, even if none exists. Also causes delusions of victimhood, and a demented belief that America is incurably racist.

Ah yes, Gabby Douglas wins a gold medal in the all-around gymnastics competition, way to go Gabby, and right after her medal ceremony, a commercial is run that features a monkey doing gymnastics. Will the Left laugh and say that is a cute commercial? Or will they scream RAAAAACISM? What do you think?

There’s lots of things one can complain about regarding the XXX Summer Games (snort). Most have seen the spectacular fail from NBC, no point in rehashing it. But, seriously?

Did NBC Just Air A Racist Commercial?

After Gabby Douglas won the gold and Bob Costas spoke about how amazing this was for the first African-American to win the women’s all-around gymnastics title, NBC aired a commercial of a Monkey doing gymnastics which has caused quite a stir. Racist, or just bad timing? Tons of people on Twitter seemed to think it was more on the racist side.

You can view some of the tweets at the link. It is very sad that so many people are locked into being offended. We have become such an overly sensitive society haven’t we? Ed Driscoll makes a fine point about those screaming RAAAAACISM, it is their problem.

Sigh. It was a commercial. As Ed Driscoll explains

While NBC will likely be forced to grovel an apology, even a fake “we’re sorry if you were offended” effort, they also have a chance to push back against this if they want, and remind viewers that:

1. Commercials and the main TV programming they sponsor are two separate entities; if you’re seeing a connection between the two, that’s your problem. And:

2. If you’re associating African-Americans with monkeys — or you think that we do — that’s really your problem.

BINGO!
