Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

Va Tech shootings postpone Gonzales inquisition…er, questioning

Headline: “Va. Tech tragedy delays Gonzales testimony”

How long until the moonbatosphere concocts conspiracy theories linking these two events (or, more appropriately, this event and non-event) together? Maybe Chimpy McHitlerburton planted the shooter (you know, the way he bombed the Twin Towers and Pentagon on 9/11?) to take the heat off of Gonzo! That evil b@stard!!!

Quote of the day

Some moonbat chick on the dismissal of charges against the Duke lacrosse team:

The charges were dropped. Does this mean that they are innocent?

Well…uhhh….yeah. Yeah, Toots, it means exactly that, especially since that Attorney General feller said so:

“We believe that these cases were the tragic result of a rush to accuse and a failure to verify serious allegations,” Cooper said. “Based on the significant inconsistencies between the evidence and the various accounts given by the accusing witness, we believe these three individuals are innocent of these charges.”

Cooper’s declaration that the three were innocent — a word prosecutors rarely use — brought a long-awaited freedom for men who lived the past year under the threat of decades in prison.

He jumped through hoops to say that they were exonerated and innocent. He didn’t say “lack of evidence” or “inconsistency in testimony” or any technicalities like that. No, he said “innocent”. Google it, Yummybritches.

Her post is entitled “You will not shame me”, though I’m convinced she left off the words “into accepting reality”.

I’ve been tagged to do a Meme

I’m not much into memes, but my new friend and visitor Ev has kindly requested me to do so, and so I shall.

Why are the 5 reasons we blog?

1. To educating America to the pitfalls and perils of the “feeling, but not thinking” ideology known as modern American liberalism.

2. I’m passionate about politics.

3. I’m passionate about writing.

4. I like to entertain. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t.

5. Because no one in his/her right mind would ever pay me to write my crap for a living, so I have to do it gratis. 😀

Florida legislator calls illegal aliens…“illegal aliens”!

If dude’s not careful, he’s gonna get the Imus treatment! From Jacksonville.com:

At least one member of the Florida Hispanic Legislative Caucus has demanded a public apology over an e-mail that a fellow Republican lawmaker thought was a funny way to remind people to pay their taxes.

Rep. Don Brown, R-DeFuniak Springs, recently forwarded a cartoon from his state e-mail account to his colleagues that read: “Don’t forget to pay your taxes … 12 million illegal aliens are depending on you!”

Brown said Friday he meant the message as a joke, but it was met with a fierce reaction from many other lawmakers. He later sent a follow-up e-mail to apologize.

Brown still needs to make a public apology, said Rep. Juan Carlos “J.C.” Planas, a Miami Republican and member of the Hispanic caucus.

“I think he has to specifically state that he understands now that that term, illegal alien, is extremely insulting to many individuals, and I think there has to be something a little bit more public and a little bit more contrite in his apology,” Planas said.

“That term, illegal alien, is extremely insulting to many individuals”…such as illegal aliens! Yessiree, if I were an illegal alien, I’d sure as hell hate for someone to remind me of that! If I were Brown, I would have responded to Planas’ galling demand for more contrition thusly:

“I represent the good people of DeFuniak Springs, none of whom are, to my knowledge, illegal aliens. Those who are illegal aliens in DeFuniak Springs can simply forget to ask me for their representation. I am disheartened to see my esteemed colleague, J.C. Planas, taking up the cause for illegal aliens in his district and volunteering his services of representation for them. I would like to encourage him to represent his legal constituents as his oath of office compels him to do.”

Here’s how Imus should have handled the “nappy-headed” flap:

Brown said he’s finished with the issue.

“People were offended by it and I have apologized to those who were offended by it,” Brown said. “As far as I’m concerned, I’m done. Now if they want to elevate it to an entire new debate about illegal aliens, then we can have that debate.”

Well done, Brown. Personally, I wouldn’t have apologized for it at all, and I’d tell people to go pound sand before getting an apology out of me for stating the obvious (a fact that pro-illegal immigration apologists frequently tune out): illegal aliens impose a cost on society. However, if he is determined to bow at the altar of political correctness, he did so the right way: say it, and be done with it. After all, groveling and perpetual apologies didn’t Imus anywhere, now did it?

Mockumentary leftard "Sicko" Moore takes 9/11 reponders to Cuba for health care

Sometimes, words just don’t properly convey the outrage felt, but I’m going to give it my level best. From the NY Post:

Filmmaker Michael Moore’s production company took ailing Ground Zero responders to Cuba in a stunt aimed at showing that the U.S. health-care system is inferior to Fidel Castro’s socialized medicine, according to several sources with knowledge of the trip.

The trip was to be filmed as part of the controversial director’s latest documentary, “Sicko,” an attack on American drug companies and HMOs that Moore hopes to debut at the Cannes Film Festival next month.

Two years in the making, the flick also takes aim at the medical care being provided to people who worked on the toxic World Trade Center debris pile, according to several 9/11 workers approached by Moore’s producers.

But the sick sojourn, which some say uses ill 9/11 workers as pawns, has angered many in the responder community.

“He’s using people that are in a bad situation and that’s wrong, that’s morally wrong,” railed Jeff Endean, a former SWAT commander from Morris County, N.J., who spent a month at Ground Zero and suffers from respiratory problems.

Regardless, some ill 9/11 workers balked at Moore’s idea.

“I would rather die in America than go to Cuba,” said Joe Picurro, a Toms River, N.J., ironworker approached by the filmmaker via an e-mail that read, “Joe and Mike in Cuba.”

After helping remove debris from Ground Zero, Picurro has a laundry list of respiratory and other ailments so bad that he relies on fund-raisers to help pay his expenses.

He said, “I just laughed. I couldn’t do it.”

Another ill worker who said he was willing to take the trip ended up being stiffed by Moore.

Michael McCormack, 48, a disabled medic who found an American flag at Ground Zero that once flew atop the Twin Towers, was all set to go to.

The film crew contacted him by phone and took him by limo from his Ridge, L.I., home to Manhattan for an on-camera interview.

“What he [Moore] wanted to do is shove it up George W’s rear end that 9/11 heroes had to go to a communist country to get adequate health care,” said McCormack, who suffers from chronic respiratory illness.

But McCormack said he was abandoned by Moore. At a March fund-raiser for another 9/11 responder in New Jersey, McCormack learned Moore had gone to Cuba without him.

“It’s the ultimate betrayal,” he said. “You’re promised that you’re going to be taken care of and then you find out you’re not. He’s trying to profiteer off of our suffering.”

The left accuses Bush and his buddies from “profiteering off of the war”, but I guess that Moore profiteering off of the suffering of 9/11 responders is A-OK.

Might I suggest that the next time Moore takes his ample posterior to Cuba, he should check out the free gastric bypass they offer? His bloated socialist mindset must be getting choked off.

By the way, here is an accurate representation of the real Cuban health care system. While the Silky Pony may be campaigning on “Two Americas”, there are “Two Cubas” when it comes to health care. Something tells me that Moore has seen only the better of the two in Castroland.

Dem Congress taking lavish junkets on taxpayer dime

Why, it seems like yesterday that Dems were sharing our outrage at excessive and unnecessary Republican spending! They campaigned on cleaning things up in D.C., including curbing unneeded spending. Apparently, the unneeded spending they wanted to curb must be defense spending, because I’m not seeing it much in other areas. From the Examiner:

Congress is keeping Andrews Air Force base plenty busy this year ferrying lawmakers all over the globe at taxpayers’ expense. Rep. Bennie Thompson of Mississippi took his wife, nine Democrats and two Republicans – Reps. Dan Lungren of California and Mike Rogers of Alabama – on a whirlwind tour of the Caribbean last week. After stops in Honduras and Mexico, they stopped in the U.S. Virgin Islands, where the delegation stayed at the five-star Caneel Bay resort.

In a separate trip to the Caribbean last week, Rep. Eliot Engel of New York squired his wife and four Democratic members to Grenada and Trinidad.

All told, the military flew at least 13 congressional delegations to various destinations during the Easter recess — at an estimated rate of $10,000 or more per flying hour.

The congressional delegation trips, known as CODELs, are paid for by taxpayers. They are supposed to be directly related to members’ official duties, and House guidelines also stipulate that delegations include members of both parties to qualify for military planes — a requirement that Speaker Nancy Pelosi waived for Engel’s group and two other delegations.

“There was a good faith effort made to include Republican members,” a Pelosi spokesman said. “For one reason or another, that did not work.”

In their successful campaign to win control of Congress last fall, Democrats accused Republicans of extravagant travel paid for by lobbyists. Some of these trips carried a strong whiff of influence peddling. The worst that can be said of CODELS, and critics often say it, is that they’re junkets.

BEVERAGE ALERT! Put down your drink. You’ve been warned!

Thompson’s office said he toured the Caribbean because he now chairs the Homeland Security Committee and wanted to see vacation hot spots to “examine border security and port security.” Three other members of the delegation also brought along their spouses.

Yeah, and I’d also like to check out St. Croix and Cancun to see how Al Qaeda might hit us there! Continuing:

At the Caneel Bay resort, where room rates reach $1,100 per night, the spokeswoman said Thompson and his wife paid the “government rate.” But, according to the reservations department, Caneel Bay doesn’t “offer any government rates.”

How’s that for “fiscal responsibility”? Let’s stay at a $1100/nt. hotel with no government rates. Obviously, a Red Roof Inn would be beneath them, huh?

Storm front’s damage

Floods in New York and New Jersey. Winds are beating down D.C. Snow, winds, tornados…everywhere. Record cold temperatures here in Florida.

You know what caused this mess, don’t you? No, it wasn’t a Nor’easter. It was Chimpy McHitlerburton’$ evil Rovian anti-Kyoto global “warming” machine! MWHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

Speaking of which, some global “warming” Chicken Littles braved freezing cold temperatures (and obvious undermining irony) to alert the world to how serious global “warming” really is. Other activists, however, pansied out and opted not to freeze in the “feverish” elements.

Irony…it’s not just for breakfast anymore!
