Titanium Isn’t Hard Enough

Posted by LC Aggie Sith on Wednesday, October 31, 2012 in 2012, Awesomeness, Politics

By now some of y’all who are lucky enough to live in Texas have heard of the Greg Abbott vs. Eurotrash kerfuffle. It all started when the members of the  Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) informed Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott of their intentions to monitor voting at polling places around the country on Election Day. Now, this is not new, nor did it alarm those of us familiar with the practice much, except the members were going to be monitoring for fraudulent conservative practices and doing so inside the polling stations. This came about due to a petition from liberal voting rights groups, including the NAACP and ACLU, that suggested the OSCE’s presence could help combat what they fear will be a “concerted effort to suppress votes from supporters of President Barack Obama”. Texas law prohibits any international observers from being inside the polling station, requiring them to be outside the 100 ft. perimeter. Well, our Attorney General was just NOT going to take that sitting down, and proceeded to inform the OSCE of their limitations:

“If OSCE members want to learn more about our election processes so they can improve their own democratic systems, we welcome the opportunity to discuss the measures Texas has implemented to protect the integrity of elections. However, groups and individuals from outside the United States are not allowed to influence or interfere with the election process in Texas. This State has robust election laws that were carefully crafted to protect the integrity of our election system. All persons — including persons connected with OSCE — are required to comply with these laws.”

Well, the OSCE got their thongs in a tight wad, and they in turn fired off a letter to the Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, whining about Abbott. Ms. Clinton fired off a letter to Abbott, whining to him, and he replied that he was only enforcing existing laws, and that if she didn’t like it, tough shit*. Not backing down, and reiterating to the whole fucking world that he has bigger balls than all of European weenies put together and weighed in Jupiter, Mr. Abbott made sure to send out missives to ALL polling stations that they would also be responsible for obeying and adhering to current Texas laws. Translation: “I catch any of y’all letting them inside, and y’all will also be charged with a felony.” And what did that get him? Well, only the highest compliment evah! Possible banning from Europe!!

A senior State Duma deputy has called on Europe to ban Texas’ top prosecutor for refusing to allow election observers from Russia and other OSCE member states to monitor the presidential vote next week.

Sergei Zheleznyak, a Duma deputy speaker and United Russia member, said Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott should face sanctions on a “position of principle.”

Because Russia has such a great track record on elections, or something. I imagine a conversation between the Euroweenies and Abbott would have gone like this:

OSCE Weenie: We are going to make sure your illiterate commoners do not rig this election for Romney, henceforth He-Who-Should-Not-Win.

Abbott: Y’all will obey the laws in this great state, or I will sling your asses in jail. Diplomatic Immunity my ass!

OSCE Weenie: Madame Secretary!! He called us names and threatened us, and hurt our feewings!!!

Secretary Clinton: You have to abide by international law, We are the WORLD!!

Abbott: Ma’am, rules are rules, and even your village’s idiot can figure that out.

Duma Dumbass: You will not obey international law?? Then you will be banned from Europe. BANNED, I SAY!!

Abbott: Oh, yeah? Like I give a shit! If I wanted to see bonfires, I would go to Aggieland, so kiss my ass!!

I’m telling y’all, Abbott has balls of adamantium.

*Poetic license ;)

Coffin, Meet Nail

Posted by LC Aggie Sith on Monday, October 22, 2012 in 2012, Government, Politics, War

Tonight is the last of the debates between Governor Romney and Prez Obama. As usual, Matt Drudge nails it:

Even if you were to sweep that off as just unfortunate, you also have to contend with this:

Don’t think that was just unfortunate timing and/or mistakes done on the ground. That’s the icing that several dictators are licking as they endorse Prez Obama. Just ask Putin, Chavez, and Castro. No, don’t bother with the Nork Dork. He’s too busy watching musicals and threatening South Korea to bother endorsing anyone over here. But the Prez can always blame the Afghanistan deaths on BusHitlerHalliburton or something.

Even the UN Dude for Counterterrorism and Human Rights (no, I’m not making that title up. Well, just the “Dude” part) has actually come out and WARNED the citizens of the US to NOT vote for Romney, because waterboarding!!!ELEVENTY111!!! And just to make sure that the conservatives do not cheat, the UN is sending some international poll watchers to you know, keep an eye out for disenfranchisement, like enforcing the law. That’s great foreign policying right there.

Truth be told, and I know I don’t have to say it, but the best summation of Prez Obama’s foreign policy comes down to one word: Benghazi.

Let us hope that nail is driven into the coffin until the wood splinters.

UPDATE:

From a friend in the Empire State:

Oh, and from blogger JohnD we get this hilarity.

There is no amount of deodorant for the desperation they reek.

Finally, Something That Isn’t Bush’s Fault

Posted by LC Aggie Sith on Monday, August 27, 2012 in 2012, Idiotarians, Politics, Total Bullshit

This…. this is monumental, y’all. Our esteemed Prez has finally found someone to blame other than BushCheneyHalliburton: YOU!!

From his latest campaign email:

Last week, when I was in Iowa, voters told me they were feeling it. The numbers back it up: Our side is getting outspent 2-to-1 on the air there.

“Y’all hear Romney ads more often, because I was a dumbass and spent too much money way back in June.”

But the folks asking me about this don’t want an explanation — they want to know what I’m going to do about it.

“Where are you going to get the money for my mortgage and free gas?”

And the fact is that solving this problem is up to you ….{snip}

“Y’all have to pony up for my campaign or y’all will be back in chains!!”

We’re losing this air war right now.

“The little people are questioning me and not buying the lies!!111!!”

I don’t have as much time to campaign this time as I did in 2008, so this whole thing is riding on you making it happen.

“Michelle and the girls need vacations from their vacations, and those little balls of mine won’t putt themselves, you know.”

I find it ludicrous that he doesn’t have time to campaign. Aside from golf, campaigning is what he does most often. The fact is, the man is desperate. I’m sure he didn’t write this schpiel, but he approved this message. Blame comes easily for those who are humble, which is why he will never take blame for anything.

But it’s ok, Mr. Prez. You really did build this.

Michigan: The trees are the right height

Posted by ArmedGeek on Tuesday, February 21, 2012 in 2012, Politics

No, I’m not kidding.

What the fuck is wrong with this dude?

“I was born and raised here. I love being in Michigan”, Mr. Romney said. “Everything seems right here. You know, I come back to Michigan; the trees are the right height. The grass is the right color for this time of year, kind of a brownish-greenish sort of thing. It just feels right.”

“I like seeing the lakes. I love the lakes. There’s something very special here. The Great Lakes, but also all the little inland lakes that dot the parts of Michigan.”

“You know, we’ve been to Massachusetts. I love the ocean, too, I do love the ocean, but there’s something special about lakes, where you don’t get salt on you after you’ve been swimming, where there’s no seaweed, where you don’t have to worry about things eating you in the water.”

“I grew up totally in love with cars,” he said. “It used to be in the 50s and 60s, if you showed me one square foot of almost any part of a car I could tell you what brand it was, the model and so forth. Now with all the Japanese cars I’m not so good at it, but I still know the American cars pretty well.”

Mr. Romney told the crowd that he drives a Mustang.

“I love American cars, and long may they rule the world,” he said. “Let me tell you, I want them to do well.”

I understand that all politicians pander to some degree or another, but this is just insane.

Santorum Makes an Appearance .. and other news

Posted by ArmedGeek on Wednesday, February 8, 2012 in 2012, Extra Hookers, Government, News

From VerumSerum:

Santorum racked up wins in all three contests. He won 40%-35% in Colorado’s caucuses and that was his least convincing win. He was 45% to Ron Paul’s 27% in Minnesota and 55% to Romney’s anaemic 25% in Missouri.

I have to admit that I’d written this guy off as an also-ran way back from the beginning.

My question is: Is this about Santorum or is this about middle America being a bit pissed about what the east coast is trying to saddle them with?

Now, its easy to point out that a win here and there doesn’t mean anything, but knocking down three states shows that you can win. People don’t want to vote for a loser. This is part of Romney’s advantage. We’ve been told for so long that he’s the only winner of the bunch. Maybe a night like this will help change that opinion.

The Gateway Pundit brings us this bit:

The protesters suggested pulling fire alarms in the hotel where the conference will take place, screaming “fire” during conference activities, “glitter-bombing” participants, cutting electrical power, and barricading entrances to the hotel, according to the source, who requested anonymity.

“Speakers will be physically assaulted, not just verbally confronted,” the source told Scribe in an email. Two Occupiers, who the source also identified as members of the New Black Panther Party, “said they would be disappointed if they didn’t get arrested and planned to ‘make it count.’”

So how long do we put up with the blatant criminal activity from these fucking losers? Either they’re going to continue to escalate until they seriously injure or kill someone or they’re going to rush the wrong stage somewhere and get shot dead. And before you say, “Fine, fuck ‘em”, you know what the headlines would look like.

From HotAir:

Few have lived in a world in which a handful of corporations don’t run the food system. The food industry has made our world theirs. Instant meals and ready calories are as much a part of the fabric of late capitalist life as the culture in which they’re acceptable. Excising corporations from an economy that has come to depend on their products addresses the problem of added toxins in food. But it does little to change the circumstance that renders those foods a caloric raft for the poor, nor does it address deeper injustices within the food system spawned by corporate power.

Even the Food NazisTM are motivated by a hate of capitalism. Here’s the thing: You can still walk into a grocery store and buy fresh fruits and vegetables and uncooked meat. I know, I was surprised too. To listen to the Food NazisTM, the only thing you’d find in a grocery store is aisle after aisle of Twinkies.

Newt takes SC

Posted by ArmedGeek on Saturday, January 21, 2012 in 2012

From FoxNews:

Newt Gingrich resurrected his campaign Saturday with a stunning victory in the South Carolina Republican presidential primary, leveraging strong debate performances and a handful of wrong turns for Mitt Romney to surge past the former frontrunner and reset the race which is now headed for Florida.

After claiming his first primary win, the former House speaker rallied supporters on the road to the next contest on Jan. 31. Gingrich, looking to convey the image of a general election candidate, focused his victory speech almost entirely on President Obama, unloading some of his toughest criticism to date on the White House incumbent.

Is this the beginning of the end for Romney or just a bump in the road?

Florida is up next and I’ve long thought that Florida will vote NotRomney no matter who NotRomney happens to be.

Perry’s out … endorsing Newt

Posted by ArmedGeek on Thursday, January 19, 2012 in 2012, Politics

From FoxNews (and Lizard):

Rick Perry will drop out of the presidential race Thursday and endorse Newt Gingrich, Fox News confirms, a decision that comes just two days before the South Carolina Republican primary.

There’s good news and bad news here. The bad news is that I still think he’s the best of the bunch and would make a damned good POTUS. The good news is, we get to keep our governor.

The big question is, how much help is endorsing Newt going to be?

Oh, and I have to admit I was wrong. I thought he’d stick until Florida, but endorsing Newt it makes sense to get out now. Now is when thinning the herd and endorsing Newt does Newt the most good.
