Rumors of my demise…

Posted in Politics with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 2, 2009 by thedoyle

For anyone who has been here in the past few months and still comes back to read this, thank you.  So…we could have a new Supreme Court Justice. What’s that you say? What do I think about her? Funny you should ask. So many things to say and most of them have been said. I don’t know her. Until she was announced I had heard her name and seen very little and what I have seen since has not impressed me. But I don’t know her. I will she how she does when shes asked questions in the Senate. It is very likely she will be confirmed unless there is some smoking gun out there. But what she has said is important even beyond her as a Justice but also about the role of a Judge, the role of race and the role of Identity Politics.

Here’s the best of what I read:

Cowards? Moi? I think not Liberals.

Eric Holder, our new Attorney General, whom I have talked about before has claimed this country is a “nation of cowards on matters of race, saying most Americans avoid discussing unresolved racial issues.”

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20090218/ap_on_go_ca_st_pe/holder_race

I will now and forever say that Holder can go fuck himself. Is that a brave enough statement for you?

This liberal nitwit continues saying, “we, as average Americans, simply do not talk enough with each other about race.” Well let’s talk about talking about race. Liberals are the ones who care most about race, it matters the most to them. They claim to be the least racist but that is just untrue. MLK said he looked forward to the day when a person was not judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character. Liberals have NEVER lived up to that. Just look at our new President. Obama would never have been elected if he had been judged on his character.

Liberals are the MOST racist people I have ever met. It concerns them all the time as they are never able to see past skin color. That is the reason there aren’t more conversations about race. Why would I want to talk to a Liberal about race? I know they are racist, I know they are so small minded to not be able to see past that and it informs everything they say and do. And the worst part about it all is the hypocritical disingenuous way they go about acting as if they are above it all.

Let’s look at this new bullshit that Liberals have spewn upion us about Race. The NY Post had a political cartoon that has race huckster Al Sharpton and the liberal nitwits at the Huffington Post up in arms.

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20090218/ap_on_re_us/ny_post_cartoon

The AP article doesn’t even SHOW the cartoon, so how can anyone who reads the article make up their own mind? HINT: You aren’t supposed to make up your own mind, let the liberals make it for you.

Fortunately the guys at Powerline do have the whole story and the pic.

http://www.powerlineblog.com/archives/2009/02/022869.php

John Hinderaker also makes some very good points that need to be repeated. Obama didn’t write the stimulus, Pelosi did, so how could the chimp be Obama? Also after 8 years of comparing Bush to a chimp, why are the lovely little BJ and the Bear co-stars off limits for political commentary?

This goes back to my hypocrite statement I made about liberals before and I have talked about in other posts.

Liberals suck. Hows that for honest, Mr. Holder? You are the most racist turd-bags around. Hows that for honest, Mr. Holder? I am sick and tired of hearing about race because to me it isn’t an issue. I don’t care what color you are. I treat everyone the same when I first meet them. If I start to not like someone it has nothing to do with skin color, it has everything to do with the content of their character. People like Holder and Sharpton and Obama have the kind of character I despise, if they were white it would not make them any better, but for some reason since they are black the media and the rest of the liberals overlook their character and judge them by their skin color.

MLK was killed by a white man and his dream was killed by Liberals. Which is worse?

 

Some others who have been talking about this:

Obama wants to run the free world? He can’t even pick a good cabinet.

Posted in Culture, Economy, Politics with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on February 3, 2009 by thedoyle

Soo hear the one about the Obama pick with some tax issues? Which one you ask? Well let’s start with the one who just withdrew.

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/daschle_taxes

Tom Daschle withdrew his nomination on Tuesday to be President Barack Obama‘s Health and Human Services secretary, faced with problems over back taxes and potential conflicts of interest.”

Those last 5 words are very telling. Both men are just out for themselves so of course there will be a conflict of interest, but at the same time thieves work together all the time so what caused this particular split?

I am gonna skip the rest of the tax…”forgetters”? Isn’t that the official story for all of them? I want to talk about Eric Holder and more to the point how the media deals with anything from “The One”.

Whenever “The One” does anything the Media acts like a new mother whose baby has just filled his diaper. The mother coos and says, “Did you make a present for daddy?” I feel like the father who has the sense to say “That’s not a present…its shit.”

On that note lets talk about Holder and the Media’s reaction.

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20090203/ap_on_go_ca_st_pe/holder_confirmation

“The lanky, 58-year-old former prosecutor, federal judge and No. 2 official during the Clinton administration promised the start of a new era at the Justice Department, which was wracked by Bush administration scandals over politically motivated hirings and firings. Holder has pledged to restore its reputation.”

Let me pause while I laugh now and that gives you time to check out the excellent work Paul Mirengoff did way back in November.

http://www.powerlineblog.com/archives/2008/11/022113.php

Now that you’ve read what Paul said about Holder’s work helping Bill Clinton pardon the FALN terrorists in order to help out Hillary’s election chances, doesn’t this sentence from the AP article make you pause; “Holder also will play a major role in the future of terrorism detainees.”? He can’t even seem to hold on to the ones we had before, and they want to give him more? But the AP article never mentions that, instead we get more shit like this:

“Attorney General Eric Holder, on his first day on the job, signaled a clean break with past policies of the Bush administration and promised to hold Wall Street accountable if any major financial institutions engaged in fraud that contributed to the global financial crisis.”

Again, its shit folks. But the media is telling you its a gift. Look he’s “signaling” for a “clean break.” Its BS and it reminds me of someone else who seemed pleased with a clean break from the past:

Governor Tarkin: The Imperial Senate will no longer be of any concern to us. I have just received word that the Emperor has dissolved the council permanently. The last remnants of the Old Republic have been swept away.

Also let’s look at the second part of that sentence “promised to hold Wall Street accountable if any major financial institutions engaged in fraud that contributed to the global financial crisis.”

Two things leap out at me, first how the whole sentence with that ending makes it seem as if Bush let Wall Street do what ever it wanted.  Which isn’t true. Enron was happily cheating people during the Clinton years, it finally got busted and punished under Bush. I dont claim Bush busted them, they screwed up on their own but he didn’t just let it slide. Also for years Bush was trying to add more regulation to Wall Street and that legiislation was stopped by the Dems. So overall the first idea the AP tries to sell turns out to be shit, but lets look just at cleaning up Wall street and llok at holders past and OBAMA”S FUTURE.

Holder worked to get Marc Rich pardoned under Clinton. So here’s a guy who has done worse things then the guys at Enron and Holder helps get him out of Jail.

What does that mean for Obama’s future? I think it means that “The One” has picked himself a good crony who will do whatever Obama wants and who has shown Obama that he has no qualms about throwing ethics out the window for the right guy i.e. a Dem President.

What has the Media done? They took someone who’s past is very visiably tarnished by obvious partisan and political HACK moves, threw in some wealth envy and class warfare, some Bush Hatred and tried to wrap it up with a bow and tell you its a present, a gift to you.

Its Shit.

Shouldn’t the Media do some minimum research before it prints lies for Obama?

Posted in Culture, Economy, Politics with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on January 29, 2009 by thedoyle

When I woke up and turned on my computer one of the news stories I saw was this, headlined: “Obama signs bill making equal-pay lawsuits easier.”

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20090129/ap_on_go_pr_wh/obama

Please read the “news”story and see what you think. If I had zero information about the background I might have thought that the evil Supreme Court and Republicans were stil trying to keep women in their place especially that poor Ms. Ledbetter. But I DO have some background, apparently more than the AP does so I know the story is full of shit.

The good folks at Powerline had done some excellent research on their own about Ms. Ledbetter during the campaign since “The One” had made it an issue. Here is the post they had made in Sept about it:

http://powerlineblog.com/archives/2008/09/021565.php

Paul Mirengoff points out that Ms. Ledbetter is lying because her claim contradicts her own sworn testimony. Is it any surprise that such lies don’t alter the stance of “The One”? Nope because Democrats and Liberals never let a lie get in the way of their goal, as a matter of fact lies usually help them get to their goal. Mr. Mirengoff noticed the legislation as well and has posted again on the topic.

http://www.powerlineblog.com/archives/2009/01/022671.php

But there is one thing he missed and that is the comment in the AP, “Obama cited Census Bureau figures that women still receive only about 78 cents for every dollar that men get for doing equivalent jobs — “women of color even less,” he said.” That’s a lie, folks, disguised as statistics. And we all know what Churchill said. This lie in particular has been around for a long time and it proves the Nazis right that a lie repeated enough becomes the truth. You see those statistics look at the career span between men and women in “similar” jobs. So it will look at two candidates one male and one female who work from the time they get out of college until they are both 65 and notice that the man has made more. BUT they don’t take into account that the man has actually worked more hours because the woman has taken off 5-6 years to raise a child or whatever. They also do include that more often than not the man had worked many hours more per week at the office, say 70 hours as opposed to the woman’s 50 hours per week.

Now the funny part.

If you bring up those qualifiers as I have just done, you are accused of sexism. That’s right, because if you bring up those facts you are accused of not taking into account how difficult it is for a woman in business. You are told that women should not have to suffer because they sacrifice for their family.

What a crock of shit. You make choices in your life. EVERYONE does. Those choices mean that some things are more important to you. Once you have decided what is most important, whatever is left and left behind is NOT a sacrifice. Sacrifice is when you give up your most precious possession.  So to claim that women have sacrificed for their family means they didn’t really want the family, and to me that’s kind of messed up. Perhaps they should look at themselves instead of complaining about the “Phallacracy” is keeping them down. 

And here’s yet another good idea. Don’t LIE about your problem and expect sympathy from me, or any other person who can reason. Fortunately you have the Liberals to take you in, and “The One” to fall for your bullshit and change the world to accomodate your lies.

Climate Change Hysteria has been replaced with Climate Change Hubris

Posted in Culture, Economy, Environment, Politics with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on December 15, 2008 by thedoyle

For years the Goreacle and his lackeys have been screaming that we are all about to suffer a great cataclysm because of Global Warming.

goremock2

Of course a lot of their screaming would make more sense if they weren’t such hypocrites.

gore-chicken-little

Also perhaps if the leader of their cult was a little smarter that would help too.

gore-iq

Also it turns out the planet isn’t getting warmer, its actually getting cooler.

yo-gore

Of course those who follow the Goreacle say that the numbers NASA and IPCC put out, that have been PROVEN wrong, don’t actually prove that Global Warming is a myth.

interpretation

And of course the Goracle’s sheep refuse to acknowledge any other argument for possible warming.

global-warming-explained1

 

At any rate since the hoax of Global Warming is becoming clearer, the nitwits have wasted no time in renaming the issue. Now it’s no longer Global Warming now its Global Climate Change. That’s very good for them this way they can say no matter what happens to the weather it must be bad and it must prove their theory.

Well “The One” has picked his staff for Energy and Environment, I didn’t know they were part of the same department till now. I made the mistake of watching him roll out his new staff. Obama is a true “Snake Oil” salesman, the way he talks about “Global Climate Change” and has the balls to say he will be relying on “facts” without busting out laughing or having his eye twitch is amazing. Obama actually had the gall to say that he was going to “stop” climate change. Let’s think about that for a minute, he’s going to stop a natural function of the planet. The Climate changes four times a year, that’s why we have things called “seasons” and Obama is going to stop that. How can he get any dumber? Well he’s hired people to make sure his idiocy is put into practice. After his new staff made their little speeches, Biden got up there and showed the world not only his botox and his hair plugs but also his complete lack of intelligence.

joe-biden-brainless

 

Sooooo, how bad is all of this? John Hinderaker from Powerline shows the proof of the Climate Change nitwits and how it has seeped down to the Press.

http://www.powerlineblog.com/archives/2008/12/022303.php

All in all, I think people should worry about this cult that is Global Climate Change. Of course when the media is in the tank for the “The One” as powerline shows, it is unlikely that the light of reason will be seen any time soon.

Powerline looks for MSM candor…do you think they found it?

Paul Mirengoff points to a Washington Post piece that lacks any real substance but is trying to show Bush’s flaws while seeming to show some humanity at long last. Paul smacks around Dan Eggen the author of the peice. It’s worth reading…Paul’s take not the article itself.

Powerline exposes the New York Times

Posted in Politics with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on November 25, 2008 by thedoyle

Powerline is one of my favorite blogs. Its analysis is reasoned and the writers have class and they don’t stoop to …well my level really. 🙂 I just can’t help being “snarky.” (I heard that applied to an audience I was in over the weekend at the Federalist Society National Lawyers Convention, I liked it.)

Here, Paul Mirengoff shows how the NYT seems unable to look at its own archives while its strives to outdo all other Obama worshippers. Well worth a read.
