You think sure, but that was before we were a country and had the Second Amendment.
And I say sure, and that was before Executive Orders, Progressives, and Sandy Hook Elementary.
Never give up! Never surrender! And always remain vigilant.
In the “Who Else Saw This Coming” file, Charlie Crist registers as a Democrat.
Crist — Florida’s former Republican governor who relished the tough-on-crime nickname “Chain Gang Charlie” and used to describe himself variously as a “Ronald Reagan Republican” and a “Jeb Bush Republican” — on Friday evening signed papers changing his party from independent to Democrat.
He did so during a Christmas reception at the White House, where President Barack Obama greeted the news with a fist bump for the man who had a higher profile campaigning for Obama’s re-election this year than any Florida Democrat.
Frankly, his new nickname should be The Chameleon. Seems to me he changes with whatever is the “in thing” at the moment.
Charlie and Carole Crist had a tour of the White House on Thursday and ran into Valerie Jarrett, a senior adviser to the president. He mentioned that he was thinking of signing papers to become a Democrat the next night at a White House reception.
“She said, ‘You’re always welcome in my party. I think it’s a great idea,’ ” recounted Crist.
I would take that recounted statement with a grain of salt, but for the fact that Jarrett really thinks the Democratic Party belongs to her.
One thing’s for sure: tanning salons in Florida may suffer the tax, but Charlie more than makes up for that.
But I’m starting to think this Obama fellow might not be telling us the whole truth…
So tell me what you think is the lie that’s either furthest from the truth or the most damaging … or both.
I remember back in September of last year, when Hubby came home for R&R, we went to have lunch at Olive Garden. I had noticed a few changes to their kids menu and enquired about it. The waitress seemed oblivious to it, but I found out later that the restaurant chain and its owner, Darden Restaurants, made the changes in response to pressure from the “Let’s Move!” campaign First Lady Michelle Obama sponsors.
Obama launched the Let’s Move! campaign to fight childhood obesity, and has challenged restaurants to offer more healthful menu items. So far, establishments such as McDonald’s, IHOP and Burger King have jumped on board, pledging to include better options such as fruit.
In July, McDonald’s said it would alter its Happy Meals, cutting back on French fries and adding apples. The company also plans to reduce calories, saturated fats, added sugar and sodium on its menu. Other restaurant chains, such as Romano’s Macaroni Grill and the Cheesecake Factory, have also added more healthful items to their menus. Who said peer pressure was a bad thing?
Frankly, I was rather appalled. It isn’t the job of government to dictate what you can and cannot eat, though they damn well do it. But it is a private corporation and they have the right to do as they please with their menus, as well as the right to cave in to pressure. And before y’all go criticizing me for wanting fat foods, that’s not my point. I prefer to eat the fruit options rather than the french fries. My point is that the company is willing to tune out the will of their customers in favor of the will of the administration, thinking special favors like this may save them from other follies coming their way.
Well, guess what? It didn’t do shinola.
Orlando-based Darden Restaurants is testing cuts to workers’ hours in an effort to keep down costs of the health-care reform act, the Orlando Sentinel reports.
Darden (NYSE: DRI) told the Sentinel the tests would take place at “a select number” of its restaurants in four markets, including Central Florida.
The goal is to keep employees at 28 hours a week at the designated test restaurants.
They thought raising the minimum wage was the answer? How’s that working out when you DON’T GET THE HOURS TO COMPENSATE?? And if you aren’t a full-time employee, YOU become responsible for paying for the new and improved HEALTHCARE!!
But hey, you always have the Race Card™ to max out.
Yes, we are still in shock. Yes, we as conservatives underestimated the greed of those who believe they are entitled to everything by virtue of being in this country. Notice I did not say “being citizens”. Leeches abound regardless of citizenship.
But we will not be broken.
We have something no other country enjoys. I have lived and visited many places, and they all lack what we have here. It’s not pride. Having lived in Germany I witnessed how they lack pride of country, bringing out their flags only during the World Cup, and forgetting about countrymen such as Otto von Bismarck and Baron von Richthofen. You may counter with how the French are prideful braggarts and I would disagree. Oh, they have pride in their food and their language, and even of their citizenship, since they manage to hold those unlucky enough not to be born of French blood to be second class citizens. But country? Hell, they couldn’t tell me what building had been razed where the New Opera House stands. They think nothing of pissing against the wall of La Madeleine, not understanding the architectural and historical treasure it represents. To them, Napoleon is a dead guy, and Louis a common name. The Brits are not much better. They may rejoice in their former glory, but when it comes down to Socialism, they are quite happy to lay back and think of England. They carry so much guilt it shines like the sun off the Cliff of Dover.
No, we will not be broken. We have something they all lost long ago. Something they are unwilling to find, and unwilling to get back.
We have our American Spirit. And that, my friends, is something even the progressive culture can never take away. This cancer will eat at them, too. But unlike them, we will prevail, because it is in our veins to rise from the ashes and succeed.
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.
A few thoughts on what I have noticed around my corner of the world.
I have counted about 14 Romney/Ryan signs in my neighborhood. I have not seen an Obama/Biden one as yet. Not even from the ardent supporters from 2008, including my neighbors. As for bumper stickers, I saw two for Obama, and lost count on the Romney ones. The best bumper sticker I saw?
I found that pic at Legal Insurrection. The sticker I saw was on the rear window, above the brake light, and flanked by Gadsden flags. I ♥ Texas.
Unlike a few of you, I have many liberal friends at the social-site-with-faces. With two exceptions, they have refused to post any more political links at that site. The two exceptions? Well, one linked the “ZOMG!! TAGG ROMNEY OWNS VOTING MACHINES!!!ELEVENTY111!!!” story, which was quickly debunked in the comments, numerous times. The other one linked the Obama MTV interview, where he flubs the name of the Defense of Marriage Act, calling it the Defense Against Marriage Act. That link was flooded by plenty of her liberal friends calling Obama not only ignorant about the name, but also accusing him of flip-flopping over the issue, which he did. It was a rather awesome flame war among liberals.
Also, there have been no plugs for the SEAL Team 6 documentary airing on Nat Geo on November 4th. Usually something that makes Prez Obama look good is linked all over that site. So far, not a peep. My guess is, that would invite others to comment about the murders of our countrymen in Benghazi. And that is something that NO LIBERAL in my feed has brought up. NOT ONE!
Another thing I have noticed is the lack of denial coming from the White House as regards the Fox News exposé of the Benghazi emails and the timeline of events. My guess is to deny it is to bring attention to it, and the White House is trying to avoid that like herpes. But they can’t avoid it. Thank you, internet!
Anyway, feel free to add to my tinfoiliness in the comments. I’m sure there is more.
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.
From a friend in the Empire State:
There is no amount of deodorant for the desperation they reek.
Apparently, they are sick of this crap.
A new poll finds that 47 percent of New Yorkers say they are worse off financially than they were four years ago, compared to 37 percent who say their finances have improved.
Before y’all think they are waking up from the stupor, think again.
The Siena College poll released on Friday also found that 68 percent of New York state residents support raising the federal income tax for high earners.
And yet they do NOT understand why the wealthy are leaving New York in droves for places like Florida and Texas. But still, it is a small step, and I do have hope that someday the wonderful people of New York State will wake up to the fact that government is squashing them like cockroaches trying to drink a Big Slurp™.
Yes, that’s in New York City. No bets as to how long it stays up. However, the fact that it actually WAS put up should be cause for celebration, especially in that liberal
A word of advice? Start with removing the tin pot dictator y’all have as a mayor. The rest will fall into place
Today came the news that the jokers in Oslo gave the Nobel Piss Prize to the European Union.
The same European Union that is experiencing riots in Greece, marches against the EU in Spain, crises in Italy, Portugal and Ireland, where Belgium STILL has no working government, immigration is setting records, where France has no-go zones in Muslim districts (for fear of fires and riots), and could not figure out how to stop the slaughters in the Balkan Wars without (illegal) intervention from the US.
But in its defense, they have done far more for the advancement of “Peace” than Prez Obama.
It has been years since this award meant anything of value. It has become a joke, the laughing stock of the Prizes. Lucky for the others, they are awarded in Sweden, not Norway. I long for the day that someone worthy will win it. But I don’t think I will see it in this lifetime. Ever since Yasser Arafat won it, I have had my doubts.
And don’t get me started on the IPCC and The Goron.
So, who do y’all think would have been a worthy candidate to win the Nobel Peace Prize? My vote goes to the nukes
