Obamacare explained… in a sentence


Brilliant!

That lady is Dr. Barbara Bellar, candidate for Illinois State Senate, District 18.

Tough call; she’s up against Chicago politics.

Meanwhile, Romney and Obama, who’ve both taken a day off from politicking today for obvious reasons, are pretty much even stevens.

LOL. Isn’t it crazy Republicans who you’d think would do something like this?


An Oklahoma senator wants an ammendment to a state abortion bill that would make masturbation illegal.

“However, any action in which a man ejaculates or otherwise deposits semen anywhere but in a woman’s vagina shall be interpreted and construed as an action against an unborn child.”

And just how would one enforce that law?

Too funny.

The senator, Constance Johnson, is to this blogger’s surprise, a Democrat.

UPDATE

To be clear, Johnson is pro-choice.

Rather than being funny, her snarky ammendment makes her look like a time-wasting oxygen thief. I am laughing at her, not with her.

Oh, bummer


The One may yet be the None come 2012, and Obama’s team is getting jittery.

It’s been a rough June for the White House. Instead of being able to run a campaign taking credit for economic improvement, President Obama will, according to the latest forecasts, be trying to win four more years amid a grim economy next year. The president’s reelection team, once hoping to run on a “Morning in America” theme now doesn’t have that luxury. No wonder, the president’s advisers over the past month have been making moves that suggest they’re awfully concerned about his prospects:

Indeed. Current polls have him at 42% against 46% for a Republican… any Republican.

H/T

UPDATE

Oh well. At least Obama still has the support of the US Communist Party.

Up is the new down


Via Tim Blair, 59 is greater than 41, Democrats are Republicans, and a carbon tax will save you money, create jobs, and heal the world.

We are living in times of High Dungeon.

News tidbits from around the Interwebs


As if Gillard’s week couldn’t get any worse, Nauru wants to ratify its UN Refugee Convention commitment. How embarrassing for a PM that is out of options.

Speaking of that issue, let’s just get scum like these pissants out of the way.

Worse? Ten million bucks of taxpayer BER funds were spent on schools slated for closure. :roll:

One last stab at our Prime Stabber:  So she’s convinced about man-made global warming, eh? And that a useless tax will fix it? And that scientific reports that aren’t actually scientific but actually directed by government policy makers – yes, we’re talking the IPCC here – can be trusted when written by Greenpeace activists? OH wait, it all makes sense now. ;-)

Keeping it in Australia for just one more blurb: Cory Bernadi for Libs presidency? Hmm, maybe, but wouldn’t he be better in a powerful ministerial role?

OK, crossing the puddle but still thinking of home, some Aussie mum reckons it was her boy getting it on with his girl. In Canada. In the middle of a riot. As you do.

BTW, in Greece they riot over “austerity measures” (i.e. not letting the country go completely down the toilet after decades of leftist government and social policy). In Canada, it’s over an ice-hockey game. Again, as you do.

OK, over to the US. Why did it take DEMOCRAT Weiner so long to resign in the first place? Anyway, Slate takes a look at some other frisky pollies who refused to resign… and got away with it. With the eight they showcase in all, five are Democrats including Bawney Fwank, Bill, and of course, Ted. Two are Republicans*, and they chuck Berlusconi in for good measure. The dude is 74 and still chompin’ at it! One almost has to respect that.

*Arguably, one of the Dems would be a Republican in the modern era.

On a more serious note, is Obama’s Libyan war – and let’s face it, it IS a war – even legal? He’s totally snubbed Congress aka the body that is actually authorised to permit a war. And he’s being sued for it.

Meanwhile, in yet another Obama Moment of FAIL™, he rejects a further push to US energy independence by turning his chin up to Alaskan oil and gas drilling. Good timing, dickhead, just when China and Russia announce closer ties (MOAR) whilst warning the US to butt out of Oil-land aka the middle East. Is Obama even pro-American? Is he just that plain fucking stupid?

China’s also taking steps against US cyberwarfare threats against them. Arrogant little bastards. Anyone who has Malware Bytes knows China is the biggest cyberwarfare threat by a longshot. Still, if I were China, I’d take advantage of that stupid clown in the White House now, too. It’s just how it works in the real world (as opposed to Obama’s leftist dream unicorn fantasy).

Speaking of unicorn fantasies, Eliot Spitzer claims Republicans have shifted beyond the far right. Give me a break, mate. Maybe he thinks that only because the left is currently halfway to an alternative universe that doesn’t even exist. Seriously, taxing a trace gas to save a 4.5 billion year old planet? How is taxing 0.001% of the atmosphere and ruining the livelihoods of millions of families reasonable yet a bloke who used to own a pizza joint is radical?

Maybe it’s because so-called “progressives” would be more accurately described as “regressives”.

Speaking of progressive, to save a planet that doesn’t need saving from a problem that doesn’t actually exist, everyone’s favourite pseudo-scientific political body, the IPCC, wants to put mirrors in space to… oh, I give up… to waste even more money (like we have any left)!

F*ck me. The Ridiculometre™ is fully functional and operational, Lord Vader.

And I mean FULLY functional and operational… steak made from human shit. :roll: They’ve been making us swallow their shit for more than 20 years now.

When figurative no longer is: FYYSFLT’s. As Penn & Teller note, always use the Japanese when trying to sell bullshit (‘cept it ain’t bullshit anymore).

Oh god. Can we just talk about real beef please?!?!

Beef producers call for live cattle export welfare checks to extend worldwide

Thank you.

Those greenies are just a bunch of hypocrites anyway, the lot of them. Sorry you didn’t get the house you wanted, Edge, but when you suck on about the environment, and then try to top Al Gore in the waste-stakes, well, that’s Karma baby.

Speaking of funny, it not just in the US – looking at you Stewart and Colbert – where comedians double as government and/or leftist propagandists.

*sigh*

Did anything actually positive happen in the West over the past week?

Yes it did.

Victory Over Islamic Influence at the National Defense University Foundation

So there you go.

PS He often doesn’t leave me in the best mood – no unicorns with this guy – but here’s Mark Steyn’s weekly round-up, too.

H/T s_dog, Matt Drudge, Instapundit, bingbing ;-)

*Quit the QLD mining crusade, Alan, and research, at least, the facts behind Gasland.

UPDATE

The cherry on the cake: windfarm shut down. Windfarms are noisy for those living next to them, dangerous for those building them, and don’t produce viable electricity.

UPDATE II

No wonder Spitzer lurches at the right. RINO Republican Romney is “ahead of the pack”. Fear not VRWC minions. Herman Cain is close.

The Republicans need the Tea Party


So says Sarah Palin.

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin on Monday warned Republican Party leaders that if they do not adhere to the message of the tea party, the GOP may be “through.”

She’s probably right. What do any American readers out there think?

Southern (white) Democrats “one step closer to extinction”


I’m no expert of American politics, but it’s clear the Democrats are going to really cop it this November.

Jeff Zeleny:

The Southern white Democrat, long on the endangered list, is at risk of being pushed one step closer to extinction.

From Virginia to Florida and South Carolina to Texas, nearly two dozen Democratic seats are susceptible to a potential Republican surge in Congressional races on Election Day, leaving the party facing a situation where its only safe presence in the South is in urban and predominantly black districts.

The swing has been under way since the passage of the Civil Rights Act in 1964, when President Lyndon B. Johnson predicted that his fellow Democrats would face a backlash of white voters that would cost the party the South. It continued with Ronald Reagan’s election and reached a tipping point in the Republican sweep of 1994, with more than one-third of the victories coming from previously Democratic seats in the South.

Good, considering their history.
