I’ve been fighting a cold all week and I’m not sure who is winning. Friday was the first time I was out of the house since Sunday. I felt reasonable well and went out for my monthly haircut and beard trim. By the time I got home, I was sneezing and blowing my nose again like earlier in the week. I guess I was due. I haven’t been sick since early last winter. Working from home does tend to keep you away from communicable diseases.
Obama continues spewing the big lie. All week Obama and his White House trolls have been crowing how the “Stimulus” package worked. Lessee. This time last year unemployment was around 6%. Today, unemployment is “officially” a hair under 10%. They don’t include the other 8-10% that have exhausted their unemployment and have fallen off the roles. That’s a real unemployment rate of 18-20%.
Obama went to Las Vegas to stump for Harry Reid. That’s another nail in Reid’s coffin. Obama offered a $1.2Billion bribe to Nevada for “Mortgage Foreclosure” relief. Just how is this any different from the Obamacare bribes to Mary Landrieu (D-LA) and Ben Nelson (D-NE)? A bribe for votes is still a bribe.
Andrew Breitbart’s Big Journalism blog has a two-part article on The New Fascists. It’s worth a read.
The New Fascists: Part 1 – A Political Primer
The New Fascists: Foundation – Part 2
Bullets from the Heritage Foundation…
- In light of the failed United Nations Conference on Climate Change in Copenhagen last December, U.N. Climate Chief Yvo de Boer announced his resignation yesterday.
- The International Atomic Energy Agency declared for the first time yesterday that they had extensive evidence of “past or current undisclosed activities” by Iran’s military to develop a nuclear warhead.
- A series of online attacks on Google and dozens of other American corporations have been traced to computers at two institutions in China, including one with close ties to the Chinese military.
- Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) personally attacked Reps. Eric Cantor (R-VA), Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV), Scott Garrett (R-NJ) and Tom Rooney (R-FL) for their participation in a video web chat about Obama’s Failed Stimulus hosted by Heritage yesterday.
From Rasmussen, Friday, February 19, 2010.
Seventy-three percent (73%) of U.S. voters agree with Vice President Joseph Biden that “Washington right now is broken.”
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that just 15% disagree with the vice president’s analysis of the polit
ical situation in the nation’s capital. Twelve percent (12%) more are not sure.
Yet while 87% of Mainstream voters say Washington is broken, 73% of the Political Class disagree.
However, 75% of all voters now say they are angry at the government’s current policies, up four points from late November and up nine points since September. Sixty percent (60%) think
neither Republican political leaders nor Democratic political leaders have a good understanding of what is needed today.
Sixty-three percent (63%) believe, generally speaking, that it would be better for the country if most incumbents in Congress were defeated this November. Their confidence in their own congressman also continues to fall.
The State Media is trying to label the Austin Kamikaze as a Tea Partier “because he was anti-government.” As usual, MSNBC and the other liberal propaganda organs still don’t understand the core beliefs of the Tea Party. We’re not anti-government. We’re against socialistic, tax and spend statists.
The truth about the Austin Kamikaze is that he was a leftist radical. If you read his online manifesto, you’ll see he praised the communists, hated capitalism and organized religion. His fault with Pelosi and the democrats was that they didn’t go far enough, fast enough.
When the truth gets out the State Media will drop their attacks just like they’ve ignored the leftie murderer at the University of Alabama. She and the Kamikaze are two sides of the same coin.
In closing, this word from Obama on America’s success in being the Gold and Silver medal leader in the 2010 Winter Olympics.
And one last parting shot.
Bribery by any other name… But this is 'politics'…
I prescribe copious amounts of Southern Comfort, a few good DVDs, and some gumbo. You'll be right as the mail used to be in no time.
Snarky, I'm in trouble. Haven't drank any alcohol for a couple of decades, don't do DVDs (only way to view one is through my laptop) and don't care for gumbo (chili on the other-hand is doable.
We had an ice storm overnight and everything is encased in 1" of ice. I'm just staying home, keeping warm and trying to find a post for tomorrow.
Thanks for the thought though. Have some yourself on me.
Sorry to hear you've not been feeling well, Crucis. Hope you're on the mend ASAP. I have no chili, but you're welcome to the huge pot of venison stew (complete with hot biscuits) I've got. That'll cure anything. 😉
Thank you, Snigs. I appreciate the thought. We've some venison hamburger courtesy of a church friend. He and his son got two within minutes of the start of the season. He and his son drove out to their stand. While they were standing there next to the truck just before heading to the stand, two deer walked out of the brush about 20 yards away. One for dad, one for son. Nice ones, too.
