Nothing to brief Obama on

An investment didn’t pan out. Sure, it was a bigger loss than Enron, but there is really nothing to bother Obama about.

Then, of course, the White House blames Bush.

Red Lobster, Olive Garden Hitch Their Wagon To Obama

If Darden Restaurants – parent of The Olive Garden and Red Lobster – thinks it is best that government, not consumers, dictate what is on their menu – then I am done.

I will not spend a penny in either place, ever again. I vote with my dollars, and my dollars are libertarian. The First Female says that they are “doing what no restaurant company has done before.”

Form a corporatist partnership with the state? Agree to serve shit you don’t want, in exchange for special tax breaks?

Michelle Obama said Thursday that a pledge by the Olive Garden and Red Lobster restaurants and its sister chains to serve healthier meals is a “breakthrough moment” for the industry.

Darden Restaurants Inc. is pledging to cut calories and sodium in its meals by 20 percent over a decade. Among promised changes for children, a fruit or vegetable side and low-fat milk will become standard with kids’ meals unless a substitution is requested.

No more French fries for the little ones unless an adult asks for them.

“With this new commitment, Darden is doing what no restaurant company has done before,” said the first lady, who joined executives of Orlando, Fla.-based Darden for the announcement at an Olive Garden restaurant in Maryland, just outside Washington.

Filthy whores.

The Second Coming of Jesus H. Obama

You know “The Campaign” is in full-swing when they begin making Jesus comparisons. I thought we had leaned forward, beyond this tripe.

The realities of governing as opposed to the unrealities of presidential campaigns may have made President Obama a much more human figure compared with the almost messiah-like status he had in the eyes of many supporters in 2008.

But that doesn’t mean there still isn’t the occasional moment reminiscent of a Bible story.

At a rally on the campus of North Carolina State in Raleigh, N.C. Wednesday where President Obama went to drum up support for his jobs bill, this happened.

AUDIENCE MEMBER: I love you, Barack!

THE PRESIDENT: I love you back. (Applause.) But first — but if you love me — if you love me, you got to help me pass this bill. (Applause.) If you love me, you got to help me pass this bill.

Here’s John 21:15, the New International Version, describing a scene between Jesus and his disciples:

When they had finished eating, Jesus said to Simon Peter, “Simon son of John, do you love me more than these?”

“Yes, Lord,” he said, “you know that I love you.”

Jesus said, “Feed my lambs.”

Whiskey. Tango. Foxtrot? Over.

Nah. WaPo Doesn’t Run Interference For Obama

The original headline suggested that everyone on the internet is laughing, the second one implies that only conservatives are laughing.

The totalitarian temptation

Obama has it and he isn’t embarrassed to admit it.

Facing growing opposition to his economic proposals and dimming prospects that Congress will pass other parts of his agenda, President Obama told a Hispanic group in Washington Wednesday that when it comes to the issue of immigration, “I’d like to work my way around Congress.”

“As I mentioned when I was at La Raza a few weeks back, I wish I had a magic wand and could make this all happen on my own,” Obama told a meeting of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus. “There are times where — until Nancy Pelosi is speaker again — I’d like to work my way around Congress.

Support The Todd Palin Legal Defense Fund

Stacy McCain, AKA ‘The other McCain’ has proposed a legal defense fund for Todd Palin. The purpose of it is to make sure he can afford the legal defense after he beats the crap out of Joe McGinniss. McGiniss has just released his book about Todd’s wife, Sarah in which he alleges she did, or thought of doing, every evil thing in the world, including drug use and trysts with people other than Todd. Todd’s reaction so far:

This is a man who has been relentlessly stalking my family to the point of moving in right next door to us to harass us and spy on us to satisfy his creepy obsession with my wife. His book is full of disgusting lies, innuendo, and smears. Even The New York Times called this book ‘dated, petty,’ and [said] that it ‘chases caustic, unsubstantiated gossip.’”

McCain:

During my trip to Wasilla last year, I told Todd Palin that if he had shot Levi Johnston, no jury in the world would have convicted him, and his wife’s poll numbers would have gone up.

Joe McGinniss deserves The Mother of All Ass-Whuppings, and Todd Palin ought to give him exactly what he deserves.

So I’m asking readers to go make a $25 donation to SarahPAC to help defray Todd’s legal expenses when he shows up at McGinniss’s first book signing and pounds that scurvy worm into a bloody pulp.

Please give $25 to SarahPAC, so that we can bail Todd Palin out on that assault charge — and then fly him to the next Joe McGinniss book signing to deliver yet another brutal ass-whupping.

Lather, rinse, repeat.

RD Walker might be in big trouble

The Obama Administration wants to make using a pseudonym on the Internet a felony.

If that sounds far-fetched, consider a few recent cases. In 2009, the Justice Department prosecuted a woman for violating the “terms of service” of the social networking site MySpace.com. The woman had been part of a group that set up a MySpace profile using a fake picture. The feds charged her with conspiracy to violate the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act. Prosecutors say the woman exceeded authorized access because MySpace required all profile information to be truthful. But people routinely misstate the truth in online profiles, about everything from their age to their name. What happens when each instance is a felony?

Good thing Alexander Hamilton, James Madison and John Jay didn’t post the Federalist Papers online. Using the pseudonym “Pubilus” could have landed them in big trouble.

Obama: Don’t Deport Anymore Illegals

With all of the scandals and bonehead mistakes coming out right now – I urge you all to watch the man behind the curtain!

Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-Ill.) thanked President Obama for circumventing the Legislative branch when it comes to immigration law.

Title 8 Section 1325 of the U.S. Code makes it a federal crime to be in the United States illegally. Nevertheless, the Obama administration in August directed federal immigration officials to use “prosecutorial discretion” in deciding which illegal aliens to detain and deport.

“We had a president of the United States that recently was speaking at National Council of La Raza who said during his speech, ‘There are those who simply wish me to bypass Congress when it comes to immigration,’ and many in the audience clapped, saying, ‘Yup, bypass Congress. . .’” Gutierrez told the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute (CHCI) conference on Monday.

“He (Obama) said, ‘But I can’t bypass Congress,’ and people in the audience said, ‘Yes you can,’ and you want to know something? They were right — he could and he did, and I want to thank the President of the United States, and I want to thank all of those that work at the White House for issuing new guidance when it comes to deportations,” Gutierrez added.

“You don’t deserve to keep all of your money.”

Rep Jan Skankowsky says that you don’t deserve to keep all of your money. Simple. “Government is what we decide to do together” she says. Funny, I don’t remember anyone listening to “we” when they rammed through TARP, Failed Stimulus, American Destruction & Reinvention Act, ObamaCare, etc, etc, etc…

It took me all of two seconds to come up with an ‘appropriate’ response to the question. “You deserve to keep all of it, but societies are formed by people who agree to provide funding for common services. Hopefully, we can reduce the costs and allow you to keep more of it.”

Yet another example of the flawed liberal logic (sic) which believes that the fruit of your labor belongs to them first.

Read it here.

In a interview with Chicago’s Don Wade & Roma radio show this morning, Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky claimed that Americans aren’t entitled to all of their own money.

Toward the end of a wide-ranging interview, the hosts played a clip from this week’s Republican Presidential Debate where California teenager Tyler Hinsley asked, “Of every dollar that I earn, how much do you think I deserve to keep?” Co-host Don Wade asked Schakowsky to answer the same question.

After some initial back-and-forth, she replied, “I’ll put it this way, you don’t deserve to keep all of it. It’s not a question of deserving, because what government is, is those things that we decide to do together.”

“You don’t deserve to keep all of it.”

Look, there is never going to be a tax free world. We know that. Still, Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-IL) and her associates want to take ever increasing amounts of every dollar you make.

On the Don Wade & Roma show on WLS-AM, Schakowsky is asked how much of every dollar we make we should be allowed to keep. No straight answer is forthcoming.

Naturally, she immediately attacks and knocks down strawmen as she defends fire protection roads, bridges and so forth. She knows that everyone agrees those items should be funded.

She has nothing to say, on the other hand, about millions of bureaucrats deep within the leviathan. She has nothing to say about cost associated with two-thousand-page bills, unread and indeed unwritten at the time of passage. She says nothing about the trillions the state spends to increase dependency, disincentivize self-reliance and absolve the citizenry of responsibility for their actions. She is silent the multitrillion-dollar debt catastrophe that is not the problem but merely the symptom of her tax and spend philosophy.

She just wants more.

Obamacare: Praising the seen, ignoring the unseen

Here is another example of a media outlet praising the seen while ignoring the unseen. A New Republic article claims that, perhaps, Obamacare is working. It couches its claim by stating that the data is difficult to interpret but then says this…

Need a reason to believe the Affordable Care Act is starting to work? The Census Bureau just gave you a half million of them.

That’s how many young adults had health insurance in 2010, as compared to 2009, according to the official estimates.

They go on to speculate why this might be.

Remember, one of the first provisions to take effect was a requirement that insurers allow young adults, up to age 26, to stay on their parents’ policies if employer-sponsored insurance is not available. Even though that requirement didn’t kick in until the fall, several insurers began offering such coverage earlier, in anticipation of the new rule.

Nowhere in the article does the author mention that, perhaps, there are costs associated with allowing young adults to cling to their parents’ health care plan.

People who carry family health care insurance generally don’t pay extra for additional children beyond the first. By allowing young adults to “strap hang” on their parents’ plan well into adulthood, insurance carriers are being required to provide what is essentially no-cost coverage to hundreds of thousands of adults to whom they were not required to provide coverage in the past. Many of those who are now covered but pay nothing would have purchased plans prior to Obamacare.

In other words, the insurance companies have been required to cover a half a million adults who were formerly potential customers for no charge. This has a cost and that cost will be paid by other insurance customers in the form of increased insurance rates. There is no such thing as a free lunch and other customers are and will be forced to pay for insurance for these young adults in the form of increased health insurance fees.

Nowhere in the New Republic article is even a hint of this fact. It is almost as if they believe that Congress can pass into law cost free health care. It is this type of weak reasoning that creates economic crisis after economic crisis in America.

No Jail Time For Woman Who Strangled Newborn Because Canada Accepts Abortion

EDMONTON, Alberta, September 12, 2011:

An Alberta judge has let a woman who strangled her newborn son walk free by arguing that Canada’s absence of a law on abortion signals that Canadians “sympathize” with the mother.

Katrina Effert of Wetaskiwin, Alberta gave birth secretly in her parents’ downstairs bathroom on April 13, 2005, and then later strangled the newborn and threw his body over a fence. She was 19 at the time.

She has been found guilty of second-degree murder by two juries, but both times the judgment was thrown out by the appeals court. In May, the Alberta Court of Appeal overturned her 2009 murder conviction and replaced it with the lesser charge of infanticide.

According to Justice Veit, Canada’s lack of an abortion law indicates that “while many Canadians undoubtedly view abortion as a less than ideal solution to unprotected sex and unwanted pregnancy, they generally understand, accept and sympathize with the onerous demands pregnancy and childbirth exact from mothers, especially mothers without support.”

“Naturally, Canadians are grieved by an infant’s death, especially at the hands of the infant’s mother, but Canadians also grieve for the mother,” she added.

Infanticide Is Kind Of Like A Fourth Trimester Abortion

RNC Paying Off Its Inherited Debt

From Hot Air.

The Republican National Committee raised over $8 million in August, the highest amount the group has raised in an August of a non-election year and reportedly more than $2 million more than their Democratic counterparts.

The RNC said it had raised $8.17 million in August, giving them $9.22 million in cash-on-hand funds. The organization also reported holding $15.9 million in debt.”

I wonder if this has been reported to Attack Watch.

More FAIL: GOP Congressman Files ‘Real’ Jobs Bill Using Name Of Obama’s Bill – Before Obama Files

From The Heritage Foundation.

Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX):

My bill is not the president’s bill, it’s a real job creator,” Gohmert told The Hill, shortly after filing his two-page alternative to the president’s plan, under the same title.

Gohmert said that he read the president’s 155-page jobs plan, when it was emailed to lawmakers on Monday afternoon.

Calling the president’s plan a “disaster,” Gohmert said that he checked to see “who filed the ‘American Jobs Act’ for the president, here in the House, since we had to do it ‘now, right away,” but discovered that the plan had not been officially introduced in the House.

So, at 1:20pm Gohmert filed his own version of a jobs bill, under the title included on the president’s legislation distributed to members of Congress two-days prior.

Gohmert’s bill is two pages long. Text is here. The whole thing does this:

A BILL

To amend the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 to repeal the corporate income tax.”

Now there will either be two bills before the Congress with the same name ore Obama will have to rename his bill. Are there any other options?

What is dumber than Attack Watch?

It is hard to believe but Attack Watch is not the dumbest political item in the news today. She-of-the-Angry-Perm, Debbie Wasserman-Shultz serves up something even dumber.

Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman-Schultz declared last night that the seat vacated by disgraced Rep. Anthony Weiner — and held by the party since 1920 — is a “very difficult district for Democrats.

Not just difficult. “Very” difficult. Yep. That was just 91 years of good luck for the Democrats in NY-9.

Hat tip to Moonbattery. By continuing to pretend they can spend their way out of the problems caused by their spending, Obama et al. confirm that they dwell in some other dimension, outside the laws that govern reality. It’s called the Keynesian Twilight Zone.
