Free Guns!

Best liberal smack-down of the day.


Move To Tuscon, Have A Blast



A former mayoral candidate in Tucson, Ariz., is drawing heated criticism from Democrats after he launched a program this week to hand out free shotguns in high-crime neighborhoods.

Shaun McClusky, who kicked off the program Monday, financed it with initial donor commitments of $12,000. He told FoxNews.com that with those private donations alone, he can arm and train 36 people—and hopes to begin that process in 60 days.

McClusky said he’s already received more than a dozen responses from residents, “none of them negative, all of them positive.”

The 9 shot Mossberg 590, about $325, makes a great home defense gun. Comes in 12 or 20 gauge



But with McClusky launching the gun handout program in the same area where former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords was shot in 2011, he’s running into stiff resistance from Arizona officials.

State Rep. Victoria Steele, who represents Tucson, called the program “plain lunacy.”

“Arizonans in Tucson and across the state are demanding that we reduce gun violence and create safer communities. Handing out shotguns is not a solution,” she said in a written statement.

Want to bet Ms. Lib? $50 says that crime in the neighborhood he distributes the guns in drops like a friggin’ rock within 3 months.
Especially if he talks up the act, adds some possible BS about a new Neighborhood Watch and Citizen’s Night Patrol. That will drive the Left and the media ( but I repeat myself) bugpoop, freak out the police, and result in a much higher patrol presence in the area. Which will cause crime rates to drop.  Hahahahaa. Just make sure that old Jim Crow helps the guns go to the proper people. Otherwise it WILL be the Wild West.

The program, though, is actually the brainchild of a master’s student at the University of Houston. The student, Kyle Coplen, launched what he calls the Armed Citizen Project, a nonprofit that is handing out “defensive shotguns” for free in certain neighborhoods of Houston and studying the effect on crime rates.

Reached Thursday, Coplen said it’s too early to tell whether there is an effect—but he said he intends to expand the program to 15 cities by the end of the year. Right now, the program is only in Houston and Tucson, with McClusky’s help.

“His idea’s great,” McClusky said Thursday. “So I took his idea and I ran with it here in Tucson.”

McClusky said he’s working with a gun shop that will help procure the shotguns and run the background checks and another school that will help conduct training classes. He said he’s identified three high-crime neighborhoods and estimates it will cost $300 to $350 to arm each person who signs up.


Pure undiluted awesome.

That’s right you EUrowienies, in America we sell ammo designed specifically for shooting people

20 gauge shells are very similar




Don’t know shotgun gauges from a hole in the ground? Here’s Heather to help show you the differences. Smaller gauge number equals bigger gun and more recoil

Six Months Too Slow Buttheads

(R) Lawmakers demand access to survivors injured in Benghazi attack



Six months after the Sept. 11 terror attack in Benghazi, Republican lawmakers are fuming that they haven’t been granted access to the survivors – several of whom, Fox News has learned, are still recovering at Walter Reed.

Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, told Fox News on Wednesday that he spoke to a “handful of people” when he visited Libya shortly after the attack but has struggled to gain access to the survivors ever since.

“We want talk to the survivors—they won’t do that. And then the president has the gall to go on television and say ‘oh, we’re providing all the access’? Baloney. Bull-crap. That is not happening.”

Estimates of how many Americans were injured in the Libya assault vary.

Reps. Frank Wolf, R-Va., and Jim Gerlach, R-Pa., claim sources have told them up to 30 were injured, and up to seven may still be at Walter Reed. “Several may have required amputations,” they wrote in a letter to colleagues last week.

A source close to the survivors, though, told Fox News that seven were injured – not 30 – and that at least three are still at Walter Reed. Another may be recovering in California. The source said one of the injured underwent a partial leg amputation. Another is suffering from smoke inhalation and possible brain injury.

Fox News has been told that some of the survivors work in clandestine services and do not want their names made public, though they do wonder why nobody from key committees has called them in for closed hearings to testify on what transpired that night.

You sominabatching morunes. You fargin iceholes. There ought to have been a full blown committee there to meet these guys the day after they came out of surgery. This whole situation is a disgusting catastrophe. And I blame the worthless, comingled* backstabbing Republicans for this entirely. They should have been wailing like air raid sirens, every damn one of them, 24-7, from the moment this fiasco went down. And the truth should have been DRAGGED out of the administration and all the Secret Squirrel alphabet SpyBoy agencies no later than late September. And impeachment hearings begun immediately for the total bullshit story sphinctered out all over the American public. It may have turned the tide of the election.  It ought to have caused a massive pogrom at State. Instead, Boner and his band of knee-pad wearing corksnockers just rolled over on their backs and let the country be lied to and the media allowed to bury the story. And let that lying muslime jizzstain get re-elected.

Worthless bastiges.



* yes, comingled. Like you do with your recycling: several different kinds of worthless garbage mixed together in a dirty dumpster.

Fire It Up!!

Paul Ryan for Veep

Mitt Romney announced Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan as his running mate Saturday, selecting the Republican Party’s go-to man on budget issues in a decision that signals the campaign will make the nation’s spiraling debt a centerpiece of its attacks on President Obama.

Romney made the selection official during a campaign stop Saturday morning in Norfolk, Va., before launching a four-day bus tour. 

The Republican presidential candidate called his new running mate a man of “steadiness” and “integrity.” Speaking Saturday morning, Romney praised Ryan as an “intellectual leader” of the party, one who understands the toll the debt is taking on the country but is optimistic about the future.

“He doesn’t demonize his opponents. He understands that honorable people can have honest differences and he appeals to the better angels of our nature,” Romney said. “He’s never been content to just curse the darkness. He’d rather light candles.”

To the backdrop of retired battleship USS Wisconsin, an energized Ryan then riled up the crowd with a feisty speech that promoted Romney as the solution to the problems under President Obama. Ryan, met with chants of “USA, USA,” gave a sweeping vision speech on free enterprise, one laced with attacks on the White House incumbent.

“No one disputes that President Obama inherited a difficult situation. And, in his first two years, with his party in complete control of Washington, he passed nearly every item on his agenda. But that didn’t make things better,” Ryan said. “In fact, we find ourselves in a nation facing debt, doubt and despair. ...

“Whatever the explanations, whatever the excuses, this is a record of failure.”

Paul Ryan came out swinging Saturday in his new role as Mitt Romney’s running mate, accusing President Obama of presiding over a “record of failure” and promising to speak “truth” to America’s problems and correct course.

“We can turn this thing around,” Ryan vowed, as he and Romney joined for the first time as the official 2012 Republican ticket.

The Wisconsin congressman, to the backdrop of retired battleship USS Wisconsin, gave a feisty opening speech—setting the tone for the Romney-Ryan bus tour that’s next on the agenda, and the race going forward. Dutifully promoting the top of the ticket, Ryan touted Romney as the solution to the economic problems under Obama.

Met with chants of “USA, USA” from a riled-up crowd in Virginia, Ryan spoke broadly about the virtues of free enterprise and specifically about America’s economic woes, all laced with pointed attacks on the White House incumbent. Though Ryan’s reputation is that of a reserved and wonkish pol, his break-out speech as running mate signaled he’ll be playing offense for Romney quite frequently.

Ryan accused the Obama team of being “more worried about their next election than they are about the next generation.” He blamed Obama’s “misguided policies” for the economic rut the country’s been stuck in.

Well, that’s a fine pick I guess. We’re ready to rumble, so now let’s get it on. And FOR ONCE answer fire with fire. Smack the Dims with their own weapons. Don’t be afraid to fight dirty. Don’t apologize for anything, other than that you’re sorry Obama’s an illegitimate loser of a foreign communist who’s mother was an underage statutorily raped cheap white trash ho. And how you’re sorry that Obama and his evil manipulating wife were able to snooker America into electing him by hiding nearly everything about his past and covering the rest with lies. And how you’re sorry about the damage he’s done to our economy, our government, and our nation’s standing in the world.

Bugger Off Mitt

I am so sick and tired of the damned RNC/GOP/Folks For Romney people calling me and calling me to get a donation.

LEAVE ME ALONE.

I don’t care that your records show that I gave you $X last time around (for McCain). No, you can’t put me down for some amount today, and no I’m not giving you a credit card number to make a valued donation the easy way.

If I want to write you a check, I can use any one of the mailers you send me ALMOST EVERY DAY to send one in.

And they’re calling me almost every day.

Crivens, I just had the worst call yet from one of their high pressure bastards. Not only was the volume cranked up so loud that I could hear him clearly from arm’s length, he wouldn’t shut up or let me get a word in edgewise. I tried to tell him he was way too loud but that only helped for a second. When I tried to actually converse with the guy and explain my situation he went right back into PUSH MODE and started giving me the extra loud machine gun fast sales assault. I could not interject; he just ran over every thing I tried to say. At 130 decibels, I swear.

So I yelled back at him. Told him to take me off the list, never to call me again. LEAVE ME ALONE. Top of my lungs.

Son of a bitch. I don’t need this. Mittens, you’ve got a quarter billion dollars of your own. You want to be President, buy it just like everyone else does. But not with my money this time.

Romney scores no points on trip.

I’m not sure if Americans are getting news of, or are even interested in the recent artificial bru-haha created overseas during speeches and Q & A sessions with Mitt Romney.  Below is just one of the usual swipes taken by Martin Samuel, who delights in finding fault with things American on the political front.  Now that’s my take mind ya and I could just be a bit thin skinned on the subject of things American.

So the first thing that happened was, Romney was asked a question and he answered it based on all the news that the Brits themselves were putting forward.  What else was he supposed to base his answer on?  And .... btw .... he didn’t come into the Brit house as a guest and be all critical about the house curtains, as suggested by CNN’s Brit mouthpiece, Piers Morgan. 

For some few weeks before the Olympics, there was GREAT concern about security. Seems the company that was contracted to provide the bodies at just about the last minute, suddenly announced that they were unable to provide the trained personal needed. In fact dear reader, it turned out that they were, SEVERAL THOUSAND SHORT! Sooooooo, the powers that be here filled the shortage with, the Army.  Many returning from a war zone and leaves cancelled etc.  There were a few other problems reported on.  Also, before Romney’s visit there was threat of a couple of strikes by unions the day before the games began.  So you can see where people would worry or at least show some concern about the London Olympics.  And naturally, the newspapers weren’t shy and didn’t avoid loud headlines.  Especially were the issue of security was concerned.

Enter Mitt Romney on the heels of all of this.  He was asked his view about the games which, keep in mind had not yet begun. And so he said,
It’s too soon to tell and went on to explain all of the above that he’d read or had heard.
Wellllllll boys and girls.  The poo hit the proverbial thingy that goes round and round and came out having Romney sticking his nose in Brit business and commenting on things best left not commented on and as described by Morgan, came into their house as a guest and was critical of the curtains.
All of it rubbish. 

Mitt’s a disaster — except in the U.S.
By Martin Samuel
Daily Mail

Mitt Romney certainly is a U.S. presidential candidate who could unite the world. Everybody hates him.

This last week, Romney has been crossing continents and boundaries, bringing people together with their shared belief that he is a complete doofus.

Britons, Russians, Palestinians, Slovakians, Chinese, Polish union leaders, somehow Romney has alienated them all — yet back home his popularity has risen to the extent he is tied in the polls with Barack Obama.

Further evidence, if any were needed, that America is the most foreign country of all.

The trip got off on the wrong foot immediately after Romney questioned whether London could pull off holding the Olympics.

Romney, who managed the Salt Lake City Olympics in 2002, faced an angry British public and press, putting Cameron on the defensive.

“We are holding an Olympic Games in one of the busiest, most active, bustling cities anywhere in the world. Of course it’s easier if you hold an Olympic Games in the middle of nowhere,” the prime minister fired back.

The cheeky British press had a field day with Romney, basically labelling him an “American Mr. Bean.” It was a far cry from the hero’s welcome Barack Obama received in Europe during his 2008 campaign.

SOURCE, NATL. POST

Now then, the remark made by the PM, Dave Cameron, was a reference to the games held in Utah and provoked a reply from the mayor of Salt Lake City.

Salt Lake City’s mayor on Thursday extended a tongue-in-cheek invitation to host British Prime Minister David Cameron, offering him a map to show him where the “middle of nowhere” is.

“While those of us who have had the fortune of visiting London know it is certainly a wonderful city, Prime Minister Cameron’s comments likely reflect his lack of familiarity with Salt Lake City,” he said through his spokesman Art Raymond.

“He can stop by, any time — we’d love to have him and happy to send a map so he doesn’t run into any trouble locating the middle of nowhere,” he said in a statement.

The taunt was the latest salvo in a heated transatlantic exchange over the Olympics.

It all started when US presidential hopeful Mitt Romney made some ill-advised remarks about London’s Olympic preparations after arriving in Britain on the first-stop of an international tour designed to showcase his diplomatic skills.

Within hours of landing, NBC television broadcast an interview in which Romney, a Republican, said it was “hard to know just how well” the Olympics would turn out and said there were “a few things that were disconcerting.”

The British press poured scorn on Romney’s comments.

“A few things that were disconcerting”
So that’s all it takes to bring the house down.  But hey, when one is desperate to find fault with a Republican candidate, one takes whatever one can grab at.  Bad American Romney.

Then Mitt flew on to Israel where he spoke in support of the Israeli state and had some words about, oh right. You can read.
Here. Take a look.


It was Romney’s comments in the Middle East that drew the most serious rebuke, however.

On Sunday, he seemingly set aside decades of U.S. foreign policy by calling Jerusalem Israel’s capital and also had an aide say he would “respect” Israel unilaterally striking against Iran.

On Monday, Romney was forced on the defensive after he told a group of wealthy Jewish donors at a breakfast in Jerusalem that their culture was one of the reasons Israelis were more economically successful than Palestinians.

“And as I come here and I look out over this city and consider the accomplishments of the people of this nation, I recognize the power of at least culture and a few other things,” Romney said citing an innovative business climate, the Jewish history of thriving in difficult circumstances and the “hand of providence.”

SOURCE, NATL. POST

The wire services were full of this meanwhile.

Mitt Romney creates fresh divisions on Israel tour with ‘racist’ economic remarks.

Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney has been accused of undermining the Middle East peace process and making “racist” statements during his trip to Israel after telling wealthy Jewish donors that their culture is part of the reason Israelis are more economically successful than nearby Palestinians.

How is it “raaaaaaacist” to point out the obvious truth of a situation?  How far along have the richer Arab countries come with all that oil money?
Sure, they’re better off then the Palestinians.  But as a people, they so far have not matched the Jewish culture in human achievements.
What’s so racist about that?

I’d Go With Reason #6

Oh Noes, Mittens Won’t Release His 1040s!!!

6 reason why - what is evil Romney hiding???



Just another day in the liberal attack dog media. GOP Presidential Candidate Mitt Romney still refusing to let the press pour over his tax returns. And thus they suspect nefarious doings!!


Romney digs in his heels even as some Republicans say it’s time for him to give the public a better look at his personal finances

With President Obama’s campaign hammering Mitt Romney over his personal finances, even some Republicans have begun calling for the presumptive GOP nominee to release more than two years of his tax returns. Conservative political analysts say Romney is allowing people to assume he has something to hide. “It’s crazy” not to release several more years of returns, “tomorrow,” says William Kristol, editor of The Weekly Standard. Despite the pressure, Romney said Monday on Fox News that he was releasing his 2010 and 2011 returns, and nothing more.

Wait, what? You run the headline Why Romney Won’t Release His Tax Returns: 6 Theories, and in the very first paragraph you’re telling us that he is actually releasing his tax returns? Some of them? Misleading headline, much?

So you make up a list of maybes, pure supposition, and you then call this news? You’ve got to be kidding me.
1. Romney is really rich, therefore evil.
2. Romney is really rich, therefore evil, and can afford the best accountants, thereby not paying any taxes at all and thus more evil.
3. Romney is really rich, therefore evil, and therefore his riches came from exploiting everyone else, legally or illegally, therefore he has something to hide. Which makes him more evil.
4. Romney is really rich, therefore evil, but he’s one of those sex cultist morons Mormons, so he probably does that perverted tithing thing, and seeing his tax returns would show just how close his fiscal ties to that sicko cult really are. Which makes him more evil.
5. Romney is really rich, therefore evil, and he’s all stuck up about it because he thinks he’s better than everyone else. Which makes him more evil.
6. Romney is ... damn, I’ve run out of reasons. Maybe he won’t release his tax returns because IT’S NONE OF YOUR DAMN BUSINESS.

He’s not telling us how many guns he owns either. And we’re not seeing text message pics of his man junk. Because that’s none of our damn business either. And I hope it stays that way.

It’s not like you or I or almost any journalist could make sense of his tax returns. The guy has bucks, big ones, so I’m assuming his investments are broad and deep. That implies that his tax returns are large and highly complex. They’d be clear as mud to everyone except other seriously rich people and the tax accountants who work for them. So if the IRS isn’t coming after him, I say that’s good enough. And the press should eff off.

The IRS only requires you to keep records going back 7 years. The press would really like to see at least that far back, even further, so they can make a bunch of noise about his time at Bain Capital. I think it’s time some of these baying hounds were given a NoBark collar with a double battery pack.

More Jus Than OJ

Marco Rubio: Natural Born Citizen




Oh Lord, here we go again. It seems that some folks think that Florida’s Senator Marco Rubio might be on the short list for Mitt Romney’s choice of Vice Presidental candidate. So naturally the LLL (Lunatic Loser Left) is trying to disqualify the guy, crowing that he isn’t eligible because he isn’t a Natural Born Citizen. Golly, didn’t we go through this crap TWICE with John McCain? And hasn’t the LLL and the MSM spent more than 3 years now lambasting those sicko Birthers on the Right for trying to make the same case against Obama, even when their claim may be far more valid? That’s why I dug up the “LLL” term, one that we used to use way back in the day when McAmnesty was running the first time around.

Ok, I live under a rock apparently. I was completely unaware that such a movement to discredit Marc Rubio existed. But GOP author, historian, and public speaker Michael Zak wasn’t, and he emailed me a link to his latest essay over at Human Events where he says Rubio is Natural Born, and urges the Republican party to get past such allegations and get behind this probable VP candidate. Unfortunately he uses the “Chester A. Arthur was president, so it’s Ok for Rubio too” approach, which any child can immediately see as the standard Mom pitch of “If all your friends jumped off the Brooklyn Bridge ...”. I’m not sure the debate over Arthur’s Natural Born-ness is over yet, and he was president over 125 years ago.

I have to disagree in part with Mr. Zak. We’ve exchanged several emails on the subject. Nice and cordial, as is our wont. No reason to be act like deranged Democrats. And reading his responses has caused me to look a bunch of things up, and to reform my opinion. That’s what healthy debate should be, right?

Marco Rubio’s parents came from Cuba. They did not become American Citizens until a few years after he was born. Marco was born in Miami. So, is he thus a Natural Born citizen, or even a citizen at all? That question does relate to the whole Birther thing, but more importantly it relates to the bigger Anchor Baby thing.

Zak feels that the language of the 14th Amendment grants instant citizenship to Marco on his birth. This is what lawyers call the Jus Soli viewpoint; being On The Soil is all that is necessary. [ as opposed to jus sanguinis, citizenship from the parents ] Being rather a Strict Constructionist myself, I countered that the 14th clearly does not say that at all, what with the “subject to jurisdiction” clause. I backed up that view with excerpts from the Congressional Record, which contain the explanation of the Senator who wrote the citizenship clause to the 14th Amendment when it was first being debated (lower half of center column) wherein he specifically says that this does not apply to foreigners who just happen to be here.

I could have linked to several Ann Coulter essays where she says pretty much the same thing:

The very author of the citizenship clause, Sen. Jacob Howard of Michigan, expressly said: “This will not, of course, include persons born in the United States who are foreigners, aliens, who belong to the families of ambassadors or foreign ministers.”

Zak’s response was that it didn’t matter so much what the Senator meant, the opinions of everyone else mattered more. This left me a bit non-plussed, sitting there with my head tilted to one side the way your dog looks at you when he can’t figure out what on earth you’re doing, making sounds like Scooby-Doo. This is the scene from Rodney Dangerfield’s movie Back to School where the professor flunks him for his paper on Kurt Vonnegut’s Welcome to the Monkey House, which he had hired Kurt Vonnegut to write, and tells him “whoever wrote this paper doesn’t know the first thing about Vonnegut.” Harrooo?

So I took a different approach. Rubio’s parents came from Cuba, and he was born here in 1971. I had heard his parents only became citizens 4 years after he was born. Cuba, 1971: it was natural to assume his folks were refugees.

Back in 1885 the Supreme Court reached a decision in the United States v. Wong Kim Ark case, which effectively (and rather retroactively) granted citizenship at birth to that person based on the 14th Amendment AND his parent’s status of Permanent Resident, their current employment, and their having a permanent place to live (domicile). Ah ha.

The Cuban Refugee Act of 1966 gave permanent resident status to all Cuban exiles. [ except later for Elián González ] So if his folks had escaped the Bearded One, then Wong Kim Ark ought to apply, right? Well yes, but then again, no. Rubio’s parents were not exiles in the normal sense. Even though Marco has spoken about the plight of the Cubanos in Florida, and shown solidarity with their movement, it turns out that - to his own surprise! - he isn’t really one of them. His parents came over here in 1956, before Castro came to power. So while he grew up with them, he wasn’t legally part of that group, even though he thought he was. But his parents were legal residents, permanent ones. Heck, his grandfather, an emigre, used to go back and forth between Cuba and Florida all the time, and only got in trouble for it once. Things were a bit different in those days! So the refugee angle doesn’t work.

But the permanent resident angle does. I’m pretty sure. Someone with better knowledge of the world of the Green Card please correct me, but I’m fairly sure that the child of permanent legal residents becomes an American citizen at birth. By pure jus soli and by only a small stretching of jus sanguinis, because of the domicile aspect of Wong Kim Ark. And that makes Marc Rubio a properly Natural Born citizen. And Michael Zak has arrived at the right conclusion by almost the right path. Good enough for me, and I hope he accepts my Wong refinement as right. [ ooh, I just missed that oh so tempting little landmine!! grin ]

On the other hand, if I am wrong about the children born here of legal residents, then Marco Rubio should be passed by for the VP slot. Find someone else. We had enough of this mess with the fallacy of the John McCain situation, twice. And - justified or not, and I lean to the justified side - the Birther situation with Obama has been 100 times as divisive. I’d really like to get past that with our next crop of leaders. What would really help would be a clear statement from the Supremes on just who is and who ain’t Natural Born. The 14th Amendment has already suffered more than any other Amendment, being nearly gutted by Slaughter House Cases amongst others. While I would dearly love to see it revert - at least in this citizenship clause aspect - to it’s original intent, I’d be happy with a clear interpretation of any kind at this point from them there black robes. And failing that, I’d want to see the people running for the nation’s highest offices to be 3rd, 4th, or greater generation Americans, just so we don’t have to fall down in this puddle every 4 years. I think we can all agree on that one. Wet shoes are such a bother. [ ooh, I sidestepped another one!! ]

Obama Lite, Already

Mittens: Tax The Rich!



rolleyes  Already? Couldn’t the Heir Presumptive at least pretend to be a Conservative for a week? If not huff and puff and shoot dragon fire and brimstone, couldn’t he at least blow a little smoke up our ass until the primaries are over? rolleyes


At this point even Elmer Fudd would be better than Obama, and many of the Republican voters have been willing to overlook much of Romney’s shortcomings with the belief that despite Mitt’s inability to be conservative at his core, at least the guy is trying to pull us back from the brink Obama has been pushing us towards at break-neck speed. . .

And then Romney reveals that the anti-Romney folks may have a point by providing his own “Tax the Rich” plan.

Gee wonderful. This is where I stick in that I’m a firm believer in equality under the law, and therefore in favor of a flat tax? 12% for everybody, no deductions. 5% once the federal government gets cut down to it’s proper size, and a complete lack of deficit spending. And if you can’t wean the nation immediately from Progressive taxation, then set up a 4 tiered structure starting at 8%. Earn $100, owe the feds $8. Nobody rides for free. 8%, 12%, 18%, 27%. Something like that, but no escaping the bottom tier. And the whole thing flattens out in 15 years.

Not that this will happen in my lifetime. Or ever. No, the Old Boys Club said it was Mitt’s TURN, and that was decided before any candidates even announced. And that’s exactly how it will turn out, and exactly NOTHING WILL CHANGE in government. It may merely slow down, just a tiny bit, for a couple of years.

Romney is not naturally conservative. The strong conservative showing in the primaries have nudged him a little to the right, and that is good. But folks have been hoping, for the sake of turning things around, that Romney isn’t just a Republican version of Barry Obama. But when at that fundraiser Romney talked about eliminating deductions for the rich, and creating special plans for the rich, women, and Hispanics, it makes one realize that identity politics and class warfare lives and breathes in Romney’s skull. He has bought into the liberal lies, and he’s trying to appease those that have somehow made him feel guilty about being rich.

...

The liberal left says we must soak the rich, but that is a communist concept. A progressive tax rate is the second plank of the ten planks of communism in the Communist Manifesto. Why would we want to hammer on the producers at the time of economic difficulties, anyway? Have you ever gotten a job from a poor person? Is it anyone other than the wealthy that produces goods and grows our economy? How insane is it to go after those that makes our economy work?

...

Romney has bought the liberal lie hook, line and sinker, and I think he is embarrassed over his wealth.

...

Personally, he should tell them to take the guilt and shove it! Mitt Romney needs to shed the liberal skin he’s got clinging to him and be happy about being rich. Say to us, “Yep, I am successful, and you can be too!” His wealth was not ill-gotten. He’s not a criminal. Therefore, his wealth is the result of what America is all about.

Equal protection under the law, right? So why do the democrats believe the rich should not be equally protected, but that they should somehow be targeted, and made to pay? Liberty does not work that way.

No kidding. Preaching to the choir in an empty church. Nobody who doesn’t already believe this will read this essay or hear the message. An essential truth, but a waste of breath. The first comment is nearly as long as the essay, and lays out - again, for the millionth time - just how bent the tax rates are, but doesn’t mention the Leona Helmsley Clause: taxes are for suckers. The truly rich, smart, successful, or perhaps merely dishonest, don’t pay anywhere near what the official rate is. They have deductions, exemptions, tax credits for things the rest of us can’t even conceive of, plus teams of accountants to hide the money in all sorts of special nooks and crannies all over the world. Look at the Obamas ... in the news just a couple of weeks ago ... “earning” nearly $900,000 and paying 20% when that income bracket is already way up at the top rate level (38%?); he’s paying only about half of his “fair share”.

Flat rate, no exemptions. And the same rate for businesses. It’s your choice to own a home, and it’s your choice to send your kid to college. It’s also your choice to elect fiscally responsible representatives who understand both how to balance a checkbook and what good value means. A little understanding of the Constitution wouldn’t hurt either.

The guy just couldn’t stand to not be in the center of the limelight for even one lousy day. I can hear his drivel on the TV downstairs, going on about the military, the mortgage situation, the international situation, oil, Israel, Iran, blah blah blah.

myths about republicans and can we actually win come november.

I happen to catch Janet Daley on the radio last night for the first time.  Hope it won’t the last cos she can wipe the floor with any lib. they put against her.
Oh how I wish she could take the time to answer each of her critics on this article.  Of course, there may an honest point or two made by those who oppose her comments here. I’m not posting the comments cos while interesting, they are also anger inducing. So you read them if you want to, at the link.


Three myths about the Republican primary contest

Explaining the more arcane procedures of the American presidential primary system to my British friends is difficult enough. The distinction between a caucus and a primary ballot, and the various forms of the latter – those that are open to everyone in the state, as opposed to those that are restricted to registered voters of a particular party; those that are winner-takes-all as opposed to those in which the delegates are distributed in proportion to the votes won, etc - can take up half a lunch time by itself. But once these technical matters have been mastered, there are more serious political misconceptions that must be dispelled. So in the interests of international understanding, let me take on three prevailing confusions about the current Republican primary season.

Myth 1:
There is so much acrimony and bile being expended between the candidates that irrevocable harm is likely to be done to all of them in the eyes of the electorate. The mudslinging – all the negative ads and personal malice – will leave a permanently unsavoury impression of the party, whoever wins in the end.
Refutation: no, it won’t. Primary contests are always bloody and bitter. In 2008, Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton gouged lumps out of one another for months. She accused him of being hopelessly callow and inexperienced – and worse, her husband unforgivably dismissed Obama’s campaign as being similar to Jesse Jackson’s ie just another futile attempt from an over-ambitious black politician to leapfrog over the legitimate candidate. Obama in turn, implied that Mrs Clinton had no legitimate political credentials at all: that she seemed to think that having lived in the White House as a First Lady was sufficient qualification to be president. All of this nastiness was forgotten once Obama got the nomination whereupon the entire Democratic machine got behind him and propelled him to victory. What the melodramatic vitriol had served to do was make the Democrats seem like the centre of the political universe, providing a setting in which its rising star could establish a national reputation.

Myth 2:
The longer this ugly race goes on, the worse it will be for the Republicans who will end up looking like vindictive children, and damage each other so much that they will be crippled when it comes to the actual election. It would be better if everybody except the obvious front-runner pulled out now.
Refutation: The longer the race goes on, the more the mettle and personal courage of the candidates will be tested. There is always something of the OK Corral shoot-out in American elections: behaving like a gentleman is fine for a president once he is in office but a candidate needs to be able to remain standing in a long and bruising fight to prove his fitness. And, as I noted above, the longer the national drama is centred on the Republicans, the longer voters will pay attention to them. As soon as the nomination is seen to be a done deal, the public gaze will move away.


Myth 3:

Gingrich is now a dead duck. Defeat in Florida has finished him.
Refutation: This is likely to be true but not necessarily so. In 2008, Hillary’s campaign came back from the dead repeatedly. She was written off – only to recover again – so frequently that it became the received wisdom that Obama had failed “to seal the deal” until virtually the last moment. The outcome which seems in retrospect to have been inevitable was very much touch-and-go during the primaries – and the dramatic suspense of that uncertainty almost certainly helped the Democrats in the presidential election.
Moral of the story? American politics is very, very different from our own. US voters are not so repulsed by “unpleasantness” as the British, and they really, really do not like being second-guessed by the media.

COMMENTS AT SOURCE

Hope I don’t P.O. my friends here but .........

I am not feeling very confident about the election.  People who voted for Obama and are now unhappy, are not necessarily Republican friendly.  But they might vote for him again if only because of ill feelings about our side.  And to be frank, while I like Gingrich, and I think he’s far and away smarter then any of his opponents, I don’t think he can win.  And that leaves who as a choice? 

When I was in Ca. a few months ago, I watched one of the debates and was thoroughly put off by the bad behavior of Santorum.  If some didn’t spot it, and I was surprised hardly anything was made of it, then some just weren’t listening and watching as closely as they might have. 
I’m not crazy about Mitt either and I heard him singing on the radio last night.  Good grief how embarrassing.  I thought he appeared desperate.  Some may not see it that way.  I don’t feel too good about this. The prospect of another term for Obama is genuinely a very scary thought.  So I suppose I’ll either have to pass on voting, which is not an option, or vote for whoever wins the Republican nomination, which is the only option open to me that I can see.  And it’s far too late to run for office myself and anyway, even I wouldn’t vote for me. Depressing thought here.  We may not have anyone on our side who will be able to defeat Obama.
I am not feeling very well at that thought.  In fact, I am increasingly sick over it.

Homerun For Newt

Gingrich Tramples SC Primary

Garners as many votes as Romney and Santorum Combined

Delivers knockout victory speech!

UPDATE: Here it is!  And here it is:

Says the choice - between him and Obama - is one between an America that stands for freedom/opportunity/independence and one that’s a Saul Alinksy socialism that bows to Saudi princes. (actually he first says “the centerpiece of this campaign is American exceptionalism versus the radicalism of Saul Alinksi”, and then it gets better)

HORRY CLAP. Newt didn’t just throw down the glove, he picked it up and smacked the crap outta the left time after time after time, in plain straight up talk, and called the far left and their policies a destructive anti-American bunch of pinkos, and the media their running dogs. He hit just about every single Tea Party point, and then a dozen more dear to Conservative hearts. Then he smacked Obama upside the head with a dead fish over the Keystone XL pipeline and our nation’s debt to China. By gosh, gumbo, and by Hillary’s hoary beard, hit the news sites and/or YouTube and listen to that speech. He’s on fire!



Not the victory speech, but a good talk, half an hour, from Newt:

Hero of the Week





The only thing he could have done to make it better would have been to say “Don’t be like Obama and try to blame your mistakes on someone else.”

Never retreat, never surrender. Now let the smack-down commence.
