Slow and steady wins the race for Romney

Mitt Romney survived another charge from the right last night. This time it was Rick Santorum who was vanquished by Romney. If it holds, Santorum will be the 4th "not Romney" candidate dispatched by Mitt after attaining frontrunner status.

As you recall, Perry soared to the top of the polls when he entered the race in Sep. A couple of lack luster debate performances later, where he forgot one of the four government departments he would cut and calling people who want to enforce the law on illegal immigration “heartless,” Rick dropped like a stone before the Iowa caucuses and was gone before the SC primary.

Then it was Herman Cain’s turn. Who? Yeah, how quickly we forget. Cain was all the rage. He imploded under a load of unsubstantiated harassment allegations. Then when it came to light that Herman was paying some gal money without his wife’s knowledge, the jig (Can you say that? No. Not on ESPN.) was up. Herman was gone.

Then in Dec, after several strong debate performances, Newt rocketed to the top. Romney dropped a ton of ad money on Newt’s head before the Iowa caucuses basically reminding voters about Newt’s past. It worked. After mustering a SC win, Newt has disappeared.

I suppose Santorum had been riding under the radar all along. After a close second to Romney in Iowa, that turned out to be a Santorum win, Rick started to tick up in polls. Then in Feb, Santorum swept three state primaries, CO, MN and MO. With Newt sitting MI out, Santorum piled up a 15 point lead over Romney, but after a lack luster debate performance in AZ, last night he lost MI by 3. If my public school math is correct that’s nearly an 18 point swing.

Santorum is trying to color this as a win because Romney had to spend money and time to win his native state. When you have a 15 point advantage and end up losing by 3, it’s not a win Rick. It actually shows how brittle your support is. Consider how bad it might have been for Santorum had the Demo-Dopes, whose votes Santorum actively campaigned for, not been allowed to vote in MI. 3 points might actually be 5 or better.

Is Santorum dead? Don’t know. Doubt it. Can Newt make a come back? Don’t know. Probably. Has Romney been the steadiest horse in this race? Yes.

Check out this very interesting chart on Real Clear Politics. It summarizes the above clearly, accurately and quickly. Lex, why didn’t you put the link at the top then? Well, why would anyone read my musings if you could just look at the chart?

Still a free country?

Under the guise of knowing what’s best for you, the government requires that you do all manner of intrusive things like wear a seatbelt. Few argue the sense of wearing a seatbelt. It saves lives and lessens injuries. Under that logic, the government can and should also force you to wear a helmet, fireproof suit and maintain a flotation devise (in the unlikely event you have to make a water landing) in your car. Oops, I shouldn’t have given them any ideas.

Though dead for now, the Libs want you to have to register your guns. It’s the same as registering your car they whine. It isn’t. Besides, the only reason you have to register your car is so that the state can make money off of the transaction. If it were for any other purpose, the ONLY time you’d have to do it is when you bought the car.

And if you don’t think every freedom the Libs want to wrangle from you is for political reasons check out this bit of scatterology from the mind of the Lib. Libs will claim that every gay marriage from one state must be recognized by other states because of Article IV Section 1 – the Full Faith and Credit Clause in the constitution:

Full faith and credit shall be given in each state to the public acts, records, and judicial proceedings of every other state. And the Congress may by general laws prescribe the manner in which such acts, records, and proceedings shall be proved, and the effect thereof.

Now if anyone tries to apply the exact same logic to concealed carry laws, the Libs predictably go nuts. Wait, they already were nuts. They go ballistic. Nice pun Lex. Thanks.

But the fact of the matter is concealed carry laws are an infringement of the 2nd Amendment:

A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.

Concealment laws are an infringement on the right to BEAR ARMS. I can hear even the neo-cons saying, “Oh, come on! Be reasonable.” I am. I don’t know why I can’t legally throw a revolver into the glove box of my auto while on a cross country trip without having to worry about 50 different laws pertaining to that constitutionally protected activity.  I happen to think that the people who want to infringe on that right are UNREASONABLE.

But one by one we let the “we know better” crowd have their way on these “common sense” issues. And before you know it freedoms are gone like a beautiful sunset, never to be seen again.  Sadly 50+% accept it. It's as if we're setting up our own pre-crime units. Can't carry that gun, you might use it.

There is a means by which to amend the constitution. It is a long and difficult process by design. That’s why Libs prefer to use the 9th Circus Court. All it takes are three wildly Liberal judges to reverse the constitution, an election, a law enacted by the duly elected representatives of the people. Then every hare brained idea the Libs come with is touted as “common sense” by a lazy and complicit LameStreamMedia.

On a different note, the PC police are now going after free speech.
I was driving like Jackie Chan in Rush Hour 2 to pick up my Chinese take out box with extra fortune cookies from the Love You Lin Time No $h!t GI Chinese carry out in order to get home in time to see the almond eyed, yellow mamba, Jeremy Lin, lay a Kung Foo arse whippin’ on the Miami Heat – provided they’ve fixed the chink in his armor.

There! I got every one the Asian American Journalist Association’s taboos on Jeremy Lin coverage into a single sentence. Uh oh, here comes the boss to fire me.

The religion of peace is at it again

Yes, of course we are a religion of peace.  Why would you think otherwise?
As is the case day to day, there is way too much BS flowing from the P-BO administration to keep up with. After what seems like the 50,000th apology from every level of government to what seems like every individual Muslim world wide, those who practice the religion of peace are still rioting and killing people over burned paper. This is proof positive, as noted several posts below in the Jeremy Lin case, apologies never work.

It’s time we realize what the Israelis found out decades ago, there is no getting along with these radicals trapped in the 12th century. Instead of apologizing, someone with a nut sack, perhaps Martha McSally, should have doubled down and told Karzi, “Look you corrupt cocaine snorting @$$monkey, you are sitting where you are sitting because we let you. The korans were burned by accident after your home made terrorists used them as note pads to pass messages endangering Americans. If it’s anyone’s fault that those books were burned, it’s theirs for defacing them in the first place. Got it! Why don't you dopes storm the prison and kill them and be done with it?  It's a win win.  Idiots get to kill people for misusing your book and the idiots they kill desperately need killing.  Now, if you care to hang on to your good deal, shut the f$%k up. Now.”

And, I’ll remind my two faithful readers that back in 2009 the US government burned scores of Bibles in Afghanistan for fear of offending the poor dears of perpetual rage – aka Muslims. Oddly, the Pope and other Christian leaders did not call for riots and murder in the streets and the P-BO nor anyone in his crummy administration said so much as “sorry ‘bout that.”

Not only are we apologizing everyday in Afghanistan, the Dep of Bend Over (formerly Defense) sent an emissary to a mosque in Sterling VA to apologize. Pete Lavoy got down on his hands and knees and groveled for forgiveness during a speech at the ADAMS Center mosque in Sterling. Bravo, castration of the American military is nearly complete.

Fortunately, there are dozens of US general officers standing up for the American fighting man. They have signed a letter to the P-BO telling him to cool it with the apologies and investigations every time something goes amiss in war. They wrote, “To be totally PC, we promote murdering scumbags like Maj Hassan. While that cretin gets promoted, we are currently investigating peeing Marines, Marine scout snipers who adopted a unit flag eerily similar to a Nazi SS flag and now an entire base of fighting men to find out who started the fire that burned up some books and promise to punish them. This insane policy of investigating our own fighting men instead of the corruptocrats in your own administration is mind boggling.”

Ha, that’ll be the day. Not one word of reason from the general officer class.  Istead they rush to offer their own apology to the enemy for the actions of what I’m sure they think are the degenerate @$$holes that make up the American military. I’ll tell you this, I’d rather share a table in the chow hall with any of the peeing Marines, any of the SS scout snipers or the guys who lit the match on the korans before I’d want to sit with any of the eunuchs with a star on their collar.

Can you imagine Washington, Grant, Pershing, Macarthur or Ridgeway being obsessed with any of the crap our current crop of politicogenerals deal with? When will one, just one, stand up and shout - ENOUGH!

Do something? There's nothing I can do.

Yesterday the P-BO, as is the norm for a know nothing buffoon, was talking about something knows nothing about. This time it was energy. The dope who still blames George W. Bush for everything that goes wrong during his day, claims there’s nothing he can do about the rise of prices at the gas pump. He blamed the conflict in Iran, growing Chinese and developing countries’ demand, Wall St. speculators, the Grinch and Big Foot for the skyrocketing price of gasoline.

Typical whinny Lib. Boo hooo, there's nothing I can do. I might as well try to squeeze in a couple more of rounds of golf before this month’s vacation.

Hey idiot! How about:
- The Keystone pipeline
- Renewing off shore drilling in the gulf and off the west cost
- Encouraging new nuclear plants
- Allowing construction of a new refinery or two
- Getting rid of half the 100 or so mandated gasoline blends to make current refining procedures more efficient?

Nothing he can do? BS! The absolute fact of the matter is that Dopulous Maximus is delighted that gasoline costs so much. All the better to force Americans into exploding coal burning electric cars manufactured by a government subsidized auto maker.

Excrement for brains went on to drop these lines:

"It's the easiest thing in the world (to) make phony election-year promises about lower gas prices. What's harder is to make a serious, sustained commitment to tackle a problem that may not be solved in one year or one term or even one decade.''

Serious? Solyndra was a serious effort? What does that tell us about the absolute insanity that permeates this administration. But we’re on from exploding coal burning cars and failed solar companies to gasoline produced from algae. Serious?  That's a serious answer to today's near $4 a gallon gas?  I’m sure that’s off the shelf technology that will drop gas prices $1 by tomorrow morning.   These are the same people telling rational humans that we shouldn't drill in ANWR because we're years away from seeing any benefit from that activity.  If we're years away from seeing benefits from ANWR, we're decades from seeing the benefits from gasoline produced from algae. 

Commitment? What commitment you dim witted, sail eared loser? Not only have you done nothing to pursue energy that is proven to work, you have actually made an anti-commitment. You flushed 100s of millions of dollars down the crapper chasing a phony baloney made up pipe dream of green energy. YOU ARE AN IDIOT!

And it’s only going to get worse. Dill weed and his SecState have so botched the events in Iran that the nut jobs running that country are threatening to shut down the Straight of Hormuz. When there was a popular uprising in Iran, Sir Jack@$$ couldn’t be coaxed off the golf course long enough to say, “Maybe we should be helping these people.”

Now they are months from going nuclear, and the Dope's chief military advisor is claiming that Iran is being run by rational actors. Well you believe that to be true, the rational actors in Iran have threatened to wipe out Israel and the west. Whatta you going to about it? Well there’s really nothing a clueless, weak, spineless P-BO can do.

Now if we had a leader, we’d be spreading money and guns around in Syria and getting that situation to turn in our favor. Then we’d say, well who knows who is next? Probably Iran. We wouldn’t be calling Iran rational. We’d be calling them the new axis of evil. We have a pretty good track record of bring down things we call their name – evil. We wouldn’t publicly be holding Israel back. We’d be saying, well you know Israel is sovereign state that must take action to protect their people from a regime that has openly and publicly threatened them.

Last we’d be issuing permits for drilling, refinery building, pipelines and nuke power plant construction at the rapid rate here at home. If Republicans can't hit this slow, high hanging curve ball out of the park, we are truely doomed.  As always, Newt hit the nail on the head. He would do all of the above and in the process get us off Middle East oil and get gas to $2.50 a gallon. Still too high in my opinion, but anything under $3 is looking good right now.

As the Nike ad says, Just do it!  In P-BO speak that translates into, there's nothing I can do.

And the winner is...

The problem with having a record, unless you’re the P-BO, is that you have to defend that record. I thought Rick Santorum looked foolish defending his last night. He didn’t quite make a reasonable defense for his vote to fund contraception for Planned Parenthood. It basically boiled down to I’m a principled conservative, but not that principled. Defending the Ted I only drowned one woman in my car Kennedy inspired no child left behind act, Santorum actually said that “politics is a team sport; sometimes you have to take one for the team.” I think that’s what many of us have been pointing out for low these too many years. The fix is in among the political elite. Get in line take one for the team and get your re-election campaign funds.

That’s how we got:
McCain Feingold campaign finance debacle
P-BO care
Stimulus I and II
That’s how the debt ceiling gets raised without so much as a ten cent cut anywhere

Frankly, Rick, that’s how we’ve gotten to where we are, pols being pols, going along to get along. Hell you can not even count on the Republican ruling class to stand up to the Demo-Dope ruling class anymore. Sorry Rick what we need, at least with respect to getting our domestic house in order, are more contrarian, stick to their guns, what? are you nuts? types like…well like…Ron Paul. Paul drives off the cliff when argues that we’re responsible for Iran’s irrational behavior. We’re not. They are totally nuts and will nuke Israel and us if they get the chance. So we ought to prevent that if at all possible.

Newt was the debate Newt, which for some odd reason is not the day to day Newt. The debate Newt is smart, forceful, articulate and calm. He attacks the president with ease and has 2-3 take away lines every time. Taking CNN to task for assailing the Republican field on contraceptives, while giving the P-BO a pass on his support for infanticide of babies who survive an abortion, was brilliant. But alas, the day to day Newt talks about moon colonies, bitches about the rough and tumble of politics when it is directed at him and arrogantly calls for people who have beaten his brains out to get out of the race. If debate Newt can lock day to day Newt away until Nov, who knows what could happen.

Almost by default, I thought Romney was the big winner. He brushes aside, almost with ease now, the tired old attacks of “Romneycare is the same as the P-BOcare.” First, it isn’t. We have a 10th Amendment for a reason. Next, he always ends his argument by stating that he will in effect repeal P-BOcare on day one, by offering waivers to anyone who wants one. That’s good enough for me. He clobbered Santorum on his support for Scottish law expert Arlen Specter and Santorum’s own support for Romney in 2008.

Then there’s this:

Black dog?  Why defame black dogs?

This is so offensive in so many ways. First, I have a black dog. Comparing good ol’ George to the P-BO really, really Pees me off. George has actually made something of himself and has way more sense the P-BO. It beaks my heart that black dogs like Georgie are being defamed by an unfair comparison to a complete and total loser like the P-BO.

Next, I thought that the P-BO’s out reach to the Muslim world was going to cure all of this? WTF? (Win the future). Could it be that these people are just perpetually offended jack@$$es? Why yes, I think that’s the problem.

Tonight's debate

Don’t get the words contraceptives or abortion or the phrase women’s health for your drinking game during tonight’s Republican debate. Demo-Dopes and their lemmings in the MSM are going to go for the kill shot against Santorum tonight. He’s vowed to defend everything he’s said.

Contraception is phony issue drummed up by phony media shills and desperate Demo-Dopes. But don’t think that just because it’s phony it won’t work. Remember when Republicans tried to slow the growth of certain programs, Dopes used demagoguery to lead Americans to think that the Republicans wanted to “cut funds.” So only in America can a 3% increase in spending successfully be labeled a “cut.”

While no one wants to end the use of contraception, Dopes will frame Republicans’ stand for religious conscience and neighbors not wanting to pay for a neighbor’s birth control as a “ban.” This is typical Dope Lib logic. The Supreme Court said abortion is legal. So now, it’s a Constitutional right. Since it’s a Constitutional right, the government must pay for it.

So where’s the argument for me paying for your birth control? Exactly! Where is it? We jumped from a Supreme Court decision making abortion being legal; to it being a Constitutional right; to the government has to pay for it; to abortion includes birth control. It’s mind boggling. It would be like the NRA claiming that because we have a 2nd Amendment right to keep and bear arms, the government has to buy them for us and the ammo as well.

Anyone who dares say, “Whoa up there Skippy. I’m not sure much of that logic makes sense” is labeled a right wing, Bible thumping Neanderthal who wants women to suffer and die horrible deaths, because after all, it’s a women’s “health issue” don’t you know?

That’s absurd. Given the threat of AIDS and other sexually transmitted diseases, it would seem to me promoting all manner of aberrant sexual behavior by removing any consequence through contraceptives and abortion is bigger threat to women’s health than issuing a simple statement that says, “Hey, you’re going to have pay for your own damned abortion and birth control.” I really do not see how that makes me a bad guy. But in LiboLand, where thinking is a crime, it does and probably a racist to boot.

The best defense of the right of conscience act that I’ve heard came from a priest schooling Demo-Dopes on the absurdity of forcing people of conscience to foot the bill for objectionable procedures and medicines. He said, "Making a Catholic shop owner pay for abortion would be like a man walking into a Kosher Deli and demanding a ham sandwich. When the owner refuses, the government steps in and says not only do you have to serve him a ham sandwich, you have to pay for it.”

I don’t know how we got here. Oh yeah, Santorum is going to get hammered in tonight’s debate. Might be worth watching to see how he does. Newt will try to lay waste to the host. The host will be prepared. Newt and Santorum will gang up on Romney. Paul will come off as the real deal until the debate turns to foreign policy.

Could banning words be a chink in the armor of free speech?

An ESPN writer has been sacked leaving a permanent black mark that not even spic and span can remove. It’s not even certain if the chief financial officer, a niggardly tribe if ever there were such one, will honor his salary. His crime against humanity was to use the word “chink” properly in a headline to describe New York Knick phenom Jeremy Lin. As in: “Chink in the armor” referring to Lin’s 9 turnovers in a game.

The offending party, Anthony Federico, apologized to no effect. Does it ever work?  No.  Why even try? He’d have been better off if he’d just said, “I tried to avoid the use of the word chink, but bug-eater, zipper-head, fish-head and gook just didn’t seem as clever a fit.”

Of course, Jeremy Lin graciously accepted the apology and said it wasn’t a big deal. Not good enough for the race police at ESPN. No way could they give a 28 year old kid with a wife - who oddly enough is Asian - a break. They had to ruin his life just in case any of the excrement rolled in their direction. The writer has way more sense and integrity than the dopes who fired him. 

The only thing worse than the spineless creeps who fired this guy are the even creepier creeps piling on.  Oh, how could he have been so insensitive?  You just can't do that.  Never mind that the kid said he didn't realize his mistake until it was too late.  Never mind that the kid apologized.  The sanctimonious BS artists couldn't care less about what what Frederico wrote, thay are just interested in burnishing their own moral superiority with some faux outrage at what was a mistake. 

Sports people always strike me as odd. The athletes and coaches can be forgiven. The owners and front office people can be excused as well. They are running a business. But what kind of loser makes a living writing and talking about the athletic prowess of others 24-7? Usually these sports guys are old, fat, bald, white guys telling us where the sleek young black man failed. Yeah, sure, I watch. So what? These old un-athletic wannbes are as pathetic as some guy tapping out 700 words in his PJs every morning for a blog nobody reads. Hey, waaaaaaaait a minute.

Just in time for Black History month
The P-BO went on YouTube to announce the formation of the 2012 African Americans for the P-BO. This is stupid on so many levels.

One - why waste your time? 98% of blacks vote Demo-Dope - any Demo-Dope - even a jug eared, brain dead affirmative action pass through every election anyway.  If he's trying to shore up that group, he's in serious trouble.

Two – Shouldn’t the P-BO have let one his race baiting gravy stain surrogates make this announcement? He might have asked Rev? Jessie Hymietown Jackson make the announcement and color the announcement with a rhyme about rainbow Americans for the P-BO. As in:

Every four years appears the rainbow
In support of our jug eared P-BO.

The power of the rainbow
Can insure that the P-BO
Gets enough votos
To beat the Republican RINO.

Oh, is Hymietown more offensive than the word chink? Apparently not.

Three - It seems racist for the P-BO himself making a plea for the African American vote, which is already locked up. Imagine Santorum announcing the 2012 white evangelical gun toting Bible clingers for Rick drive.

Four – This is what the Demo-Dopes in general and the P-BO in particular do. Divide, divide and continue to divide until you get the votes. Have you noticed that the P-BO and his handlers never say that you should vote for them because they have done X, Y and Z and will do A, B and C if re-elected? It’s always, Romney is a big business crony. Santorum wants to snatch your birth control. Paul will snatch your welfare check. Newt will send you to his moon colony. Because everything that they have done is so unpopular, it’s never about one thing that they have done or will do.

McSally wants Santorum's jimmy

Some former Air Force hag named Martha McSally wants to kick Rick Santorum in the “jimmy” what ever that is. I have a pretty good idea what was going through her mind, but with 20 years in the Marine Corps, I thought I’d run across all of the euphemisms for “it” but never ran across that one.

McSally is outraged at Santorum for his remarks about women serving in combat. Here’s what Santorum said:

“I think that could be a very compromising situation, where people naturally may do things that may not be in the interest of the mission because of other types of emotions that are involved. It already happens, of course, with the camaraderie of men in combat, but I think it would be even more unique if women were in combat. And I think that’s not in the best interests of men, women, or the mission.”

To me, it’s obvious that Santorum is talking about the emotions of men.  Given that,  it is a perfectly reasonable statement for the way most men are raised – or at least were raised.  But McSally, known for never letting a slight, no matter how slight, pass without a lawsuit or sexual harassment charge wants Santorum’s jimmy – to kick anyway.

McSally, too stupid or too emotional to understand Santorum’s point, mischaracterized his statement this way:

"He's totally out of touch. I mean, completely out of touch. These are the types of arguments we heard 20, 25 years ago as to why women couldn’t be fighter pilots and it's an insult to the men and women who are serving overseas, putting their lives on the line and focusing on the mission right now."

McSally seems to me the perfect example of the modern military woman. If you treat her like a lady she bitches and writes you up for harassment. If you treat her like a man, she bitches and writes you up for harassment. So you have but one course of action, ignore her. Only thing is McSally will not be ignored.

Now just where in Santorum’s statement is there one thing that says women can’t fight? Hell all kinds of people can fight. Some 10 and 11 year olds boys - and for Martha girls too -could fight as well as some of the 18 year olds we currently employ to do the task. As a society we choose to draw the line at 18. Given the sisification of the modern American male, maybe it should be 21.

McSally is clearly too emotional to address Santorum’s larger point. If she had a clue she’d have said, “Look, times change. Use to be a man would protect any woman he saw in trouble. He’d give up his seat on the bus, his coat in the cold and an umbrella in the rain. Modern men now know that there very few women worth dying for, getting beat up over, catching a chill over, getting wet in the rain for or being uncomfortable in even the slightest degree. Now a day, if a woman gets a flat on the hiway, she’d better be damn good looking or hope a man over 50 years old passes by, we’ve made that much progress.”

Well in mind, it’s not progress and the result is a bunch of self centered dopes more interested in what their hair looks like than helping a damsel in distress. I’ve asked before, when something goes bump in the night, what the hell kind of man rouses his wife and asks, “You going to check that out?” Apparently that’s the norm in the McSally family.

The good news in all of this is that McSally has a genuine American war hero running against her in the primary – Frank Antenori. Unlike McSally, who bitched her way to the top, Antenori did it the old fashion way, by killing enemy soldiers and destroying their armored vehicles while serving with the Green Berets during Desert Shield/Storm.

Ms. Lex is going to kill me, but I sent Antenori $10. I included a note to watch his jimmy and promised a C note if he kicked McSally in the sara, ran a boot up her sue and bitch slapped her across her celia.

Demo-Dopes losing issues to common sense and thechnology

A big Demo-Dope campaign issue USE to be gun control. Now there 80 million guns in Americans' hands. As noted here before, that’s a good start. All but the safest of the Demo-Dopes – Nanny Bloomberg - have backed away from openly campaigning as the gun grabbing morons they are.

Instead you have Cambodian war hero John Françoise Kerry walking into a gun store and proclaiming for all hear, “Is this where I get me a huntin’ license?” Then the faux war hero and hunter wasn’t man enough to carry his own “kill” for the cameras. Afraid of offending the PETA crowd, Kerry had some sap tote the dead birds back while he mugged for the camera carrying his Italian made shotgun.

But don’t think that the Demo-Dopes have given up on grabbing your guns. The entire Fast and Furious debacle was staged for that very purpose. And if Border Patrol agent Brian Terry gets killed in the process, well that just a bit of collateral damage for the greater good.

The Demo-Dopes are just as anti-2nd Amendment as they ever were but now they have to go into stealth mode because everyone with a brain knows what they are up to. So instead of openly campaigning as the gun grabbing d-bags that they are, they creat hare-brained schemes in the DOJ to grab your guns.

Demo-Dope use to go around the country campaigning as the party that would support a woman’s right to kill her baby, ok abort the baby in the first trimester. Then something happened, ultrasound technology made it pretty clear that what was being removed from a woman’s uterus wasn’t just a blob of cells.

When referencing a VA law that requires women seeking an abortion to get an ultrasound and listen to the baby’s heart beat, great Demo-Dope philosopher and thinker Joy Blowhard,asks rhetorically:

“It’s like, what are we? What is this, the Taliban now? What are we, in Afghanistan?"

No, Joy it’s not. If it were the Taliban in Afghanistan, you’d have that ugly mug of yours where it belongs under a burlap bag.

Just like with gun control, the Demo-Dopes have lost their advantage in the abortion argument. So what to do? Well simply conflate abortion with birth control. Everyone use birth control, right? One poll says 98% of Catholics use birth control, never mind that 98% aren’t of child bearing years, or having sex, or using contraceptives. The true stat is that 98% of Catholics having sex and not wishing to get pregnant are using birth control.

As near as I can tell, no one, not even the Catholic Church wants to ban contraceptives. Most of us, including the Catholic Church do not want to pay for them for other people. Most of us don’t want to foot the bill for other people who are nothing more than too lazy and too cheap to buy their own. The church has a pretty good moral argument for not wanting to do it. It’s a long and for most I think an uncomfortable read. OK for me an uncomfortable read. (You can look up on Today’s Catholic web site.) Uncomfortable not because it deals with human sexuality but rather because it sort of nails what a hedonistic bunch we’ve become over time, bit by bit without really noticing.

More crap than it is possible to keep up with

As usual there are a bunch of things to worry about and be POed about with the P-BO and his posse of @$$clowns this morning.

First: The P-BO claims to be dumber than we thought. After claiming for months and months that George Bush’s economy was the worse economy since the great depression, the P-BO is now claiming he was too stupid to fully understand how bad the economy really was.

Now it’s totally believable that the P-BO is too stupid to understand much of anything – like how many states there are in the United States for example – hint Mr. P-BO it’s not 57. But how can even this walking talking sock of crap go on and on for months, hell years, about how bad the economy is and then when his tried and true Demo-Dope proscription for economic ruin produce the predictable result, claim he didn’t know?

Simple, when his lips are moving, he’s lying his @$$ off.

Next: There’s a little gem the P-BO budget farce that calls on us to borrow 800 MILLION from the Chinese to give to the “Arab Spring countries” to build good will and promote democracy. Hint to his Royal @$$holiness and the boot licking morons he’s chosen to surround himself with. Egypt just had the freest fairest elections in 60 years. The result was a takeover by the Muslim Brotherhood.

Now that crowd is blackmailing this administration of clueless halfwits by saying if we don’t pay them off with continued aide, they will junk their treaty with Israel. So the natural reaction to that type of “diplomacy” is to give into it and budget for it by asking for another 800 MILLION to “spread around.”

I’m POed enough about this pant load redistributing money here at home. I’m really, really, POed when he talks about confiscating wealth to redistribute around the Middle East to governments who would prefer to see us on the ash heap of history, which is ironically where the P-BO plans to deposit us.

Next: After throwing Naval tradition to the wind by naming US Navy ships after the likes of Cesar Chaves and John the jack@$$ Murtha, Navy Secretary Ray Mabus has taken the steps necessary to name a new LCS after wounded Rep Gabriel Giffords.

What a load of crap. I’m certain Mz. Giffords is nice lady. Let’s put this as plainly as possible. Her main claim to fame is for surviving a gun shot wound to the head. Of that class of people, I’m certain there are Marines alive today who have contributed more to the Naval Service and their country than Mz. Giffords. And if we include those who didn’t survive their wound – Mz. Giffords would be so far down the line of heroes you’d need 10,000 reams of paper single spaced, four columns to a page, in 8pt print before you got to Gabriel.

For the love of Pete, you'd think her husband, Navy Captain Mark Kelly, would step up and say, "Whoa there.  Hold on just a minute.  Let's not get carried away."  Not in this day and age.  Embarrassment in these things died off when we got used to giving every kid a trophy no matter how badly they played. 

I e-mailed former Navy Sec, Sen James Webb:

Sen. Webb,

Please school your Democratic colleague, Navy Secretary Ray Mabus, on the history and tradition for the naming of US Navy warships before he names the next aircraft carrier after himself. I would have thought the naming of US Navy warships was above politics. With this crowd, apparently it is not.

Semper Fi,
Doug Schumick

Last: Is the end near? Recent polls give the P-BO an upper hand against all Republican challengers. I believe the polls about as much as I do government stats on unemployment and economic growth in a campaign year. Remember this is the same bunch that told us that P-BOcare, even though it provided millions with “free healthcare” wouldn’t add to the deficit.

A.B. Stoddard, a regular on the Fox all-stars, predicted that if unemployment and the economy “continue” to improve, voters will forget about $5 gasoline, Fast and Furious, Solyndra etc. etc. That’s breathtaking. Are we really that shallow? We’ll believe cooked stats designed to bolster the worst president in US history and re-elect a buffoon that has taken the country to the brink of ruin. Yes, I believe that we are.

It's a trap

OK men listen up. When a woman tells you, “Really, let’s not exchange ANYTHING for Valentine’s Day.” A normal man thinks, “Wow that’s really cool. She knows that Valentine’s Day is a Hallmark Holiday with no personal, religious, national or organizational significance. She's so comfortable with our relationship that she doesn’t need to phony it up with $50 worth of crap that will end up in the garbage in two days anyway. Besides that puts me $50 closer to that really cool saw at Lowe's.”

Unbeknownst, to the foolish man, she really means, “Look you cheep bastard, this is just a test. You’d better make an extraordinary effort for Valentine’s Day.” Yeah, I fell for it. I can see the Griffin now shaking his head in disbelief, “You dope! How could you fall for the oldest trick in the woman’s playbook?”

I should have known I was toast when I got up in the morning to cards, candy and heart shaped donuts on the counter for Lex jr. and me. It didn’t faze me. How nice I thought. By noon I was informed that “let's not exchange ANYTHING” didn’t include a card, even though cards were specifically mentioned as a waste of money. So at 9 pm after Scouts, there Lex jr and I were at the 24 hour Kroger making our Valentine’s Day purchases. That’s when Jr. informed me he made a card for his mom in French class. The only thing better than a dozen red roses and a Hallmark card that requires extra postage for your wife on Valentine's Day is a homemade card in French from jr. Trust me I know.

Never again.

Subsidizing the rich

Of course we should subsidize this to the tune of $10,000

As part of his asinine budget proposal, the P-BO would like to offer a 10,000 dollar tax rebate for anyone dumb enough to buy a Chevy Fire Trap (aka Chevy Volt). Brilliant! We’re dead broke so let’s subsidize stupid people. What’s next, a 5,000 dollar subsidy for the cast of Jackass III? 2,000 dollars for people who spill coffee on themselves then bitch because it’s hot? 1,000 dollar subsidy for each contraption that Wiley E. Coyote purchases from the Acme Co.? Demo-Dopes have a long history of buying off stupid people (aka Demo-Dope voters).

The problem with the Chevy Fire Trap is that it’s a crummy coal burning car that catches fire, can only travel 30 miles on a charge, and costs in excess of $40K. Even with a 10K tax credit the piece of crap car will still cost in excess of $30K. Only an idiot with more money than he knows what to do with would even consider buying a crappy car that is known to spontaneously combust and arguably exacerbates the problem it was designed to contain.

A recent study of electric cars in China finds that the enviro-friendly electric cars may be causing more harm than good. And that’s not even counting the pollution spewed out into the environment when they catch fire or the enviromental nightmare that is coming when all of these dopes start disposing of worn out car batteries. I wonder if Chinaman wannabe Thomas L. My Head is Flat Friedman knows about this?

Why would Chevy Volt owners worry about any of that? Few of them as there are, the whole point of buying a volt was so that they could turn up their noses at their less environmentally conscience neighbors. So even if the piece of crap never leaves the garage, they can brag, “Why yes, I’m environmentally friendly. I own a Volt.” Never mind that they never drive it and showed up to the party in their 12 cylinder Bugatti.

Now the poor saps who invested in this coal burning piece of junk have a 3,500 pound fire bomb plugged into their garage outlet. But “poor sap” isn’t even an accurate description. It turns out that the average Chevy Volt buyer earns about $170,000 a year. The P-BO wants to subsidize these rich saps with your hard earned tax dollars. Isn’t that a tax break for the rich?

Let me break this down to the simplest terms. What kind of man lets his wife and kids travel around town in a fire bomb? Ahh yes, that kind of guy. He takes out a million in life insurance on his wife. After buying her skydiving lessons with instructor Drew Peterson, a bungee jumping package in Mexico, a SCUBA diving excursion in Aruba with some guy named Van Der Sloot, a crotch rocket motor cycle, flying lessons for his home built helicopter and a ticket for a cruise on the Costa Concordia, he says, “Uh honey, why don’t you be environmentally friendly and take the Volt today.”

The only people who are dumber that the dopes who bought this piece of junk are the people who think it’s a good idea to subsidize the piece of junk.

Catholic Bishops begin to get it right

After the P-BO tried to fool the American people with a non-compromise “compromise” Bishop Dolan, the head of American bishops, issued this statement:

"Today's decision to revise how individuals obtain services that are morally objectionable to religious entities and people of faith is a first step in the right direction. We hope to work with the Administration to guarantee that Americans' consciences and our religious freedom are not harmed by these regulations."

I thought, oh crap, they fell for it. I was outraged that they would surrender this issue as soon as their ox stopped being gored by an intrusive government bent on making taxpayers and everyone who holds an insurance policy support all manner of deviant destruction of life. If the government can require insurance companies to offer life ending “medical procedures” where does the government’s authority stop? Can they then require each of us to house a OWS loser for the summer while they go about destroying the country? Can they require that everyone with more than one car be forced to purchase a Chevy Fire Trap (aka Chevy Volt)?

I thought the bishops were ready to return the status quo ante, a time when they turned a blind eye to the excesses of the Demo-Dope party. Then this statement was released by the Catholic Bishops that pretty much puts them back in line with church doctrine and sends the P-BO and his idiot HHS Sec back to the drawing board.

Here are just few gems from the statement:

First, we objected to the rule forcing private health plans — nationwide, by the stroke of a bureaucrat's pen—to cover sterilization and contraception, including drugs that may cause abortion. All the other mandated "preventive services" prevent disease, and pregnancy is not a disease. Moreover, forcing plans to cover abortifacients violates existing federal conscience laws. Therefore, we called for the rescission of the mandate altogether.

Second, we explained that the mandate would impose a burden of unprecedented reach and severity on the consciences of those who consider such "services" immoral: insurers forced to write policies including this coverage; employers and schools forced to sponsor and subsidize the coverage; and individual employees and students forced to pay premiums for the coverage. We therefore urged HHS, if it insisted on keeping the mandate, to provide a conscience exemption for all of these stakeholders—not just the extremely small subset of "religious employers" that HHS proposed to exempt initially.

But stepping away from the particulars, we note that today's proposal continues to involve needless government intrusion in the internal governance of religious institutions, and to threaten government coercion of religious people and groups to violate their most deeply held convictions. In a nation dedicated to religious liberty as its first and founding principle, we should not be limited to negotiating within these parameters. The only complete solution to this religious liberty problem is for HHS to rescind the mandate of these objectionable services.

We will therefore continue—with no less vigor, no less sense of urgency—our efforts to correct this problem through the other two branches of government. For example, we renew our call on Congress to pass, and the Administration to sign, the Respect for Rights of Conscience Act. And we renew our call to the Catholic faithful, and to all our fellow Americans, to join together in this effort to protect religious liberty and freedom of conscience for all.

Now if the Catholic Bishops would issue a statement that indicates Catholics, like Slowest of all Joes, Joe shovel ready Biden, Cambodian war hero John Françoise Kerry and Grand Fran Nan Peloser, who support the HHS decision should stop taking communion and consider a change of religion, they’d have hit a home run.

Oh, and don’t fall the Lib BS trick of polling info that indicates 60+% of Catholics want free contraceptives. 100% of Catholics want free ice cream. Ask the question this way: Do you support your cash strapped family paying additional insurance fees to pay for some woman’s 5th abortion in two years? Or, Do you support the government forcing Americans to purchase anything? That 60+% would dip to about 20% pretty quick.

If the bishops win the battle for an exemption from P-BOcare based on “conscience”, you’ll be amazed how quickly about 98% of Americans develop a conscience.

Buying votes

Yesterday the P-BO and certain big banks teamed up to buy votes for the P-BO by bailing out homeowners who are delinquent on their house payments. Now I’m current on my house payment. Soooo, should I consider becoming delinquent so that I can become eligible for the P-BO’s plan to write down the principal on my loan? Why yes I think I should. I won’t, but you can bet thousands of other home owners will.

Also, the 27 billion banks are taking out of one pocket to stuff into another represents less than 1% of the cost of homes in America that are behind in payments or where the home is worth less than what is owed. So this whole charade is like the P-BO showing up in New Orleans after Katrina with a bucket and after pouring a few bucket loads of water over a levy that has a quarter mile gash in it, declaring he has saved the city. Like everything with the King of the @$$clowns, this is all smoke and mirrors.

But this arrangement will not stop the banks from raising ATM, checking, savings, and loan fees to recoup the cost of the money that came from the left pocket and was put into the right pocket. Again the only people who get screwed in these deals are the poor saps playing by the rules.

The only good news in any of this is that the P-BO is trying to buy votes from people he’s already paid off, moochers.

Waste associated with this program will surpass even the waste associated with most government programs.

Somehow a dozen or so P-BO campaign bundlers will be paid hundreds of thousands of dollars from the fund.

Audits of the program will reveal lots of money legally went to wealthy home owners who easily out witted the dim witted government bureaucrats administering the program.

Any shortcomings of the program will be blamed on George W. Bush.

At some debate ahead of the Nov election the P-BO will declare the mortgage crisis over as a result of his own fearless leadership. The press will run with the story irrespective of the actual truth.

In reality, aside from a staged press opportunity, not ONE USEFUL thing will be accomplished by the program.

Pay for your own damned abortion

The latest line of attack on the Catholic Church’s stand against the P-BO’s boneheaded move to force the church to pay for and make available all manner of Liberal socially destructive BS, is that 98% of Catholic women use contraceptives. Let’s say that’s true. Who’s paying for them? Certainly the church isn’t.

I’m pretty sure a very large percentage of Catholics cuss from time to time, that doesn’t mean the church should be forced by the government to hold workshops on how to cuss.

And isn’t it, even for the moral relativism crowd, a rather long leap from contraceptives to abortion and sterilization? Do these giants of deep thoughts throw the kid who swipes a candy bar from the corner store in with adults who invade a home, rape and kill its occupants and steal the plasma TV?

The church’s moral argument against contraceptives can be seen in practical terms in the demographics in Europe and it is beginning to show here in the US. The European train, after leaving stations marked, socialism, social and multicultural decline, is pulling into the station marked irreversible loss of identity. The US train is only a few stations back up the track.

It strikes me - that is the whole purpose of everything that the P-BO does. If you think he’s destructive to the American way of life as we knew it now, while he’s trying to thread the needle to a second term, wait until he is unencumbered by the need to run for re-election. Our decline in a second P-BO term will be, to borrow a term from the Justice Dept., fast and furious.

Don’t fall for the avalanche of BS that is sure to flow from this administration of lying turd biscuits and their willing accomplices in the lame steam media. It is the church’s responsibility and, for now anyway, right to proclaim its doctrine as it sees fit. It is the flock’s responsibility to live within the doctrine as best they can. The fact that a large percentage of flock fails, doesn’t give the government the right to declare the doctrine null and void.

Now, let me put the entire religious argument aside. Just when did it become my responsibility to pay for some woman’s abortion or birth control anyway? Pay for your own damned abortion. And while we’re at it, your own sex change operation, sterilization, cosmetic changes, implants, and all manner of other degenerate crap that is being forced on an already broke and struggling middle class.

Prop 8, Newt, Super PAC

Back in 2008 over 80 million dollars were spent advertising the pros and cons of a gay marriage amendment to California voters in advance of Proposition 8. In November of that year, over 13 million California votes let their opinions on the matter be known. Even though they were outspent by over 7 million dollars Proposition 8 carried the state by over 52%.

Yesterday TWO federal court judges cancelled the will of over 7 million California voters. Now irrespective of what you might think about Prop 8, it passed. It was overturned by TWO judges drove a stake into the heart of the notion that America is a land “of the people, by the people and for the people.”

And don’t lay any of that civil rights BS on me. This has nothing to do with it. Any civil discrimination can be dealt with. This is nothing more than another chip in the bedrock foundation that has made America the envy of the world for over 200 years.

I don’t even know why we have elections. We should let a three judge panel from the 9th Circus Court of Appeals decide everything for us. They seem to think that that is their role.

Everyone is saying Romney had a bad night last night. If Romney had a bad night Newt had a disastrous night. The self proclaimed conservative alternative to Romney didn’t even show up as the conservative alternative to Ron Paul. Will this drubbing stop Newt from calling for Santorum’s exit from the race? Of course it won’t. Newt’s not running a campaign anymore. He’s running a vendetta. Newt ought to be out this morning hitting his theme of dismantling the 9th Circus. There is just something so wrong about a state defining marriage by law as it has been defined over the last 2,000 years only to have that definition declared unconstitutional. There is traction here for Newt if he can just stop whining about Romney for half an hour.

The P-BO to accept super PAC money

Surprise, surprise, surprise. After blasting the Supreme Court decision that allowed the formation of Super PACs during one his more un-presidential moments – I know, how do you choose – the P-BO threw principle to the wind and jumped on the Super PAC band wagon. After all it’s more important to be elected than be elected for standing for something.

During the last election cycle, the P-BO swore he’d be taking federal matching funds right up to point that it looked like he’d make more money by not taking them, then he reneged. Can you say that any more? So complaining about Super PAC money right up to the point that you take it is par for the hypocrite Demo-Dope sail eared dope’s standard.

The P-BO is no bitter clinger

Channeling his inner Revs? Al and Jesse at last week’s National Prayer Breakfast the P-BO misinterpreted this scripture passage:

“for unto whom much is given, much shall be required”

The full passage can be found here. Were the P-BO’s interpretation of this passage correct, yeah it’d be a miracle, but it would also mean that we could simply buy our way into heaven. No?

Jesus expects much more of us than a willingness to “spread our wealth around.” I’ll tell you this, anyone who thinks that he is doing his share for mankind because he pays taxes is missing the point. Were that the case, Warren Buffet would pay his taxes and instead of just talking about wanting higher taxes for the rich, he and others who make that ridiculous argument would gladly send them in with little fanfare. And if the P-BO were making an accurate interpretation of the Bible they could buy their way into heaven by paying higher taxes.

First off, and I’ve said before on this page, if your great contribution to man is paying your taxes, you’re likely to have problems at the gate of heaven. If when asked, “What contributions have you made for man?” Your answer is, “Well, I paid my taxes.” You are likely going to have a tough sell. Next, and I believe this to be absolutely true, we’d all be better off giving the money we spend in taxes to help the poor to the Catholic Church. They do a better more compassionate job serving the poor with far less waste than the bloated federal government.

But sadly for Warren and the other raise my taxes please crowd, God never said material wealth and what we did with it would be the measure by which He would judge us. In fact, I’d guess that criterion is pretty far down his list. A poor man, contributing nothing to the offering plate or tax collector but living a Godly life is surely doing more than a rich man who tithes but otherwise does little to live his life inside God’s teachings. We call the first group saints. We call the latter group hypocrites. Since the word hypocrite is synonymous with Demo-Dopes, we know why the P-BO botched this passage.

And couldn’t we make the case that America is like the servants in the parable? Certainly we have been given much. Certainly we have done much. We were able to contribute because our economy has been powered freedom. Our people are the freest most giving in the history of the world. We now stand on the edge of losing our freedom and the economy will follow whatever path we choose. What we as a nation are able to contribute will be affected by the choices we make as a people.

If we believe as the founder did that this land of ours was founded by divine providence, I’d argue that parents who are teaching their children what American exceptionalism truly means and thereby persevering her greatness are doing great things not measured in dollars.

Last and not surprisingly, the P-BO just flat out missed the primary focus of Jesus’ parable. The primary purpose of the parable is to teach us to be always prepared for the Master’s return, for we do not know the time of His calling. The “much is given” in this passage, I think, refers to eternal life. The “much is expected” refers to living a good life. Only a shallow dope would cherry pick the last line as means to argue for higher taxes. He should have asked a bitter clinger for advice on this passage.

Church complicit in policy it opposes

The Catholic Church is in an uproar over the P-BO’s Health and Human Services’ insurance mandate forcing Catholic affiliated institutions to provide and pay for abortions, contraceptives and sterilizations on demand. In Ft. Wayne, Bishop Kevin Rhoades not only said no, he said hell no. Well sort of, Bishop Rhoades issued a scathing statement of the mandate that included this gem:

We cannot and we will not comply with this unjust federal order. We cannot and we will not accept this egregious affront to our religious liberty.

All right some good old fashion civil disobedience for a cause other than SEIU demanding that its members get paid three and half times what the average worker in the state is earning. No doubt the Catholic Church will find out what a mean vindictive bunch the Demo-Dopes are when someone, anyone, crosses them. Look for a bill from the senate before the week is out attempting to pull the church’s tax exempt status.

I’m all for our bishop’s stance. But like the illegal immigration issue, it’s 40 years too late. We’ve been allowing people to come and go across our southern border willy nilly for 40 years. Now we want to stop it, and guess what? It’s too late, or at least takes a great deal more effort to get it done. If you’ve let your kids sit at the dinner table with their elbows propped up, chewing with mouths open and burping and flagellating at will for 40 years, you can’t say, OK we’re going to have manners at the dinner table tonight and expect success.

The same is true for this new mandate.

The Catholic Church has stood mute while Demo-Dope Catholic politicians have backed abortion on demand and in many cases using tax dollars to pay for it. They did it with the Kennedy’s. They continue to do it with Slowest of all Joes, Joe shovel ready Biden, Cambodian war hero John Françoise Kerry, and box-o-rocks Grand Fran Nan Peloser.

Now, after 40 years of ignoring Catholic politicians who support abortion, in direct contradiction to their religious teaching, the bishops are pissed that these politicians are supporting the issue in direct contradiction to religious teachings.

In the last election there was a pro life candidate and a pro abortion candidate. 54% of Catholics supported the pro abortion candidate. I remember sitting in the pew before the last presidential election while a priest danced around endorsing a candidate. His approach was that the really important thing was to get out and vote, not get out and vote pro life. Well excuse me, but I’d rather pro abortionists not vote at all. Now three years later the church is pissed that Demo-Dopes do what Demo-Dopes do.

Sorry bishops, you’re 40 years too late. Had the church stepped up early on and denied communion to these half Catholics they’d have firmer ground to stand on. As it is, I’ll bet not one bishop has the guts to name the three half Catholics mentioned here and demand they stop taking communion.

OK, that’s it. All ya all at Andy on Call get back to work. You’d best believe he’s watching.
