Your Marxist Morons of the day are

The City Council of Concord, Taxachusetts! Thanks to William Teach for the story

I heard this one on the news yesterday or Wednesday, but, had completely forgotten about it during my morning news perusal. Fortunately,Tom Nelson is there to point the way

(Globe and Mail) Concord, Mass., has banned the sale of single-serving plastic water bottles, the Boston Herald reportsThe bylaw, posted on the Town of Concord’s website, states: “It shall be unlawful to sell non-sparkling, unflavored drinking water in single-serving polyethylene terephthalate (PET) bottles of 1 litre (34 ounces) or less in the Town of Concord on or after Jan. 1, 2013.”

Violators face up to a $50 (U.S.) fine, with Concord’s Health Division responsible for enforcing the ban.

What makes this REALLY stupid is that the ban apparently does nothing about other drinks in plastic bottles.

It’s not like someone could simply go to another town, say Maynard or Bedford, to purchase the evil water bottles. Or, that drinks like Pepsi, Coke, Ginger Ale, orange soda, tea, etc, come in….plastic bottles (I often reuse soda or tea bottles by putting water in them).

This is clearly a case of Do-something-itis which affects many politicians, especially Liberal politicians. In this case we have a “crisis”, which really isn’t a crisis, but stick with me here. A crisis that demands legislation according to Leftist theology. So, we pass a law, and we feel better. The fact that the law is stupid does not stop that good feeling Liberals get from “doing something”. The fact that the law allows certain liquid products in evil plastic bottles but bans others in the same evil plastic bottles matters not either.

By the way, it seems that at one time plastic bags and bottles were pushed by Liberals in order to save our environment from evil paper bags and glass bottles. And they wonder why I call Liberalism an ideology of failure.

 

Racism, is not racism, but chanting USA,USA IS RAAAACISM

Moonbattery explains

When Alamo Heights high school basketball players chanted “USA” after winning a game, they were punished severely by educrats and vociferously denounced in the media for “racism.” Elsewhere in San Antonio, punks broke into a guy’s house and spray-painted “Die Whitey” on the wall; the authorities can’t figure out if it’s a hate crime.

Why have we allowed the Left to screw this nation up this badly? And it  is not just limited to the absurd racial speech codes the left is shackling us with. You know,the ones that allow Liberals to use racist terms like “White Boys”. Kurt has another example of how the Left is killing us

Kalifornia is now forcing Coke and Pepsi to change their soda-pop recipes. Because the way they make the caramel coloring has cause cancer in some lab rats…who ingested the equivalent of some 1,000 cans per day.

So, do the two giant soft drink manufacturers pull their products from the shelves and tell Sacramento to pound sand?
NOoooo, they ask how much time they have to obey some BS health law that doesn’t affect anyone at all. So, California is broke, and THIS is what their legislature focuses on? And why do the voters keep electing these morons? Maybe they are all stoned

And of course, there is the Left, the self-appointed defenders of women playing politics with Mysoginy because, apparently some verbal assaults on women are more equal than others

The Hill reported:

Bill Burton, the head of the super-PAC supporting President Obama’s reelection effort, said Thursday that while some of comedian Bill Maher’s comments “were vulgar and inappropriate” he did not believe they were similar in tone to controversial statements last week by radio host Rush Limbaugh.

Maher, host of HBO’s “Real Time,” recently announced a $1 million donation to the Priorities USA group helmed by Burton. But conservatives have argued the group should return the donation because some of the comedian’s past statements have been as controversial as remarks made by Limbaugh and denounced by the president and leading Democrats.

Limbaugh came under fire for calling Georgetown Law student Sandra Fluke, who testified to Congress in favor of mandating coverage for contraception, a “slut” and a “prostitute.” But supporters of the conservative talk show host argue Maher has also used derogatory terms — including “bimbo” and “twat” — to describe prominent Republican politicians, including former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin.

MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell asked Burton, a former Obama campaign press secretary, if that was a double standard, a charge Burton deflected by arguing that Maher was a comedian, not a political commentator.

“First of all, obviously, some of those things were vulgar and inappropriate and said over the course of years of a comedian’s life. It’s not language I would use or language we would use at Priorities USA,” Burton said. “But the notion that there is an equivalence between what a comedian has said over the course of his career and what the de facto leader of the Republican Party said to sexually degrade a woman who led in a political debate of our time, is crazy.”

“There’s no just similarity about what Rush Limbaugh said, lying about the argument that Ms. Fluke was making — a law student at Georgetown — and what a comedian has said in the past,” he added.

Break out the tar and feathers. And hurry up before these Nanny Statists start rationing our food

After all, whosoever controls our daily bread, controls us—lock, stock, and large intestine.  Ask any Ukrainian.

The ultimate liberal goal is not a fair distribution of fresh food. The market distributes goods according to supply and demand and manufacturers distribute their products according to demand. The intent is to take away our freedoms. Food is now a variable of class struggle and a form of discrimination because “the poor and downtrodden are getting junk food while the snobs get fancy food.”

According to food police at school, your mom does not know what is best for you, your government does, following Michelle Obama’s nutrition dictates. Food and the distribution of food has become a social issue in the collectivist/socialist ideology. We must all be equal in the leftist view and the government must step in to regulate food distribution and delivery.  “Food Justice” Has Arrived

Or you could just ask George Soros:

Financier and progressive activist George Soros is formulating a move to control food and grain production by purchasing grain elevators in late March in several parts of the United States through his Soros Managment Fund’s backed Gavilon Grain.

With strong ties to the Obama administration, Soros now has both the economic, and political clout to begin consolidation of purchasing and shipping domestic agriculture around the world.

Why grain elevators, you wonder?

What most folks don’t understand it is the Grain Elevator Operator who makes the money, and controls the prices for the most part. Not the commodities market. You control the Grain operator, you control the food supply. (Bunkerville comment via George Soros: How Much Is Enough For This Man? | Conservatives On Fire)

Like I said grab the tar, the feathers,and hurry up!

Ads on school buses? Why the Hell not?

Chris at Wyblog has some fun with a solid idea.

Your child’s yellow school bus will soon be a rolling billboard. NJ Governor Chris Christie has signed into law a measure granting cash-strapped school districts the right to sell advertising on their buses.

Half of all revenue generated will be used by to offset transportation costs, while the other 50 percent will go to services chosen by the Board of Education.

Districts will have the ability to sell advertising space on the exterior sides of school buses owned or leased by the district. All advertisements will be approved by the local Board of Education, and tobacco, alcohol and political advocacy ads are prohibited.

Really, what could go wrong?

Tobacco and alcohol are off limits, but what about Coke vs Pepsi? Viagra vs Cialis? (Nah, the moment probably isn’t right.) Chevy Volt? Or BMW?

I don’t suppose too many local school boards would be eager to approve an ad for Huntington Learning Centers! But that still leaves the door open for lots of possibilities.

The wheels on the bus go round and round thanks to Michelin because so much is riding on those tires!

Forgot your lunch? Papa John’s delivers!

Hmmm. Maybe they’d better run that one by Michelle Obama first.
