Crush Liberalism

Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

Quote of the day, “Dem dismisses Constitution” edition

From Stop the ACLU:

Further proof of this came this week in the Pittsburgh City Council during the debate on an unconstitutional gun bill the city was trying to institute. After the lopsided vote was over — with the anti-constitution side winning — Councilwoman Tonya Payne told everyone that would listen that she didn’t care about the U.S. Constitution.

Who really cares about it being unconstitutional? This is what’s right to do, and if this means that we have to go out and have a court battle, then that’s fine.”

That, my friends, is the perfect illustration of how your average liberal sees the Constitution.  Keep this in mind anytime you hear some leftist act indignant about a Republican politician “shredding the Constitution”, because apparently, “shredding the Constitution” is fine so long as it’s a liberal that is manning the shredder.

Canuck university kills cystic fibrosis fundraiser

Why would they do that?  Because according to the Canucks at this school of “higher” learning, the victims of cystic fibrosis are all a bit too caucasian for their liking.  Details from Canuckistan:

The Carleton University Students’ Association has voted to drop cystic fibrosis as the beneficiary of its annual Shinearama fundraiser, arguing that the illness is not “inclusive” enough.

Cystic fibrosis “has been recently revealed to only affect white people, and primarily men” said the motion read to student councillors, who voted almost unanimously in favour of it.

Carleton students have fanned out across the city near the beginning of the school year to raise money to fight the illness for years. But according to the motion read Monday night to student councillors, “all orientees and volunteers should feel like their fundraising efforts will serve the their (sic) diverse communities.”

Mr. Bergamini said the orientation week fundraiser, which is carried out by students at many universities across Canada, raised about $1-million last year. Shinearama has raised money for cystic fibrosis research for more than 25 years.

“I think they see this, in their own twisted way, as a win for diversity,” said Mr. Bergamini. “I see it as a loss for people with cystic fibrosis.”

Meanwhile, he said the vote was an example of political correctness gone too far in student government.  (Ya think??? – Ed.)

The fact that C.F. does NOT kill only white people notwithstanding, what kind of depravity must one suffer from to where skin color of the victims of a heinous disease ever enters the thought process?  How would you sick Canucks like to stand in front of God Almighty on the day of your judgment and tell Him that you would have been glad to aid His children suffering from C.F. if only He had given them greater pigmentation?

Hey, let’s take this a step further, shall we?  How about not holding any fundraisers for breast cancer, since over 99% of the victims are female?  I mean, that’s not “inclusive”, now is it?  Or what about sickle cell anemia, since that primarily affects the black community?  The possibilities are endless!

And liberals think that we need to emulate the Canucks?  No thanks!

Obama picks Granholm to help hone his economic message

God help us.  Nothing says “I want only the best on my team” quite like picking a woman who has Michigan teetering on a full, total economic collapse.  From NRO:

Now we know why Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm is on President-elect Barack Obama’s economic policy team. Judging by Obama’s Saturday economic address, he plans to address the nation’s ills with the same inept policies Granholm has championed for the last six years here in Michigan.

Granholm and Obama have much in common: They are both young Democratic party protégés, both are charismatic personalities, and both are left-wing, Harvard-educated lawyers with little experience running anything prior to assuming office. Like Granholm, Obama appears to have little grasp of market economics, but prefers showy public-works programs and utopian visions of bridging a carbon-addicted America to a new green economy that will employ millions.

How has Granholm gone about creating this new green economy? With mandates and targeted tax breaks — just as Obama will likely propose. Granholm spearheaded a state Renewable Power Standard that mandates 20 percent of Michigan’s energy come from wind power by 2020, and she has showered tax breaks on alternative energy companies. Watch for Obama to do both on the national level.

The result has been a Michigan economy that has drowned under Granholm’s watch, with unemployment tripling to a nation-leading 9.3 percent at the same time that Michigan’s debilitating economic fundamentals — high taxes and overgenerous concessions to organized labor — have gone unaddressed. Granholm, however, has missed few opportunities for photo ops touting the companies that have benefiited from her tax handouts or her road-construction spending.

And she has landed a key position in Obama’s transition team, where she and the president-elect apparently agree that Granholmnomics is America’s future.

“Hope”?  I’m not seeing it.

Humor of the day

This is a hilarious satire site called “Best Obama Facts”.  A few of my favorites:

A microphone into which Obama has spoken, heals asbestos-related disorders and colorectal cancer by direct application.

In second grade Obama developed a concrete plan to save the children. When George W. Bush heard about it, he killed the children and exiled Obama’s family to Hawaii because Bush hated the children.

When Obama was five he fixed Social Security, but George W. Bush broke it again on purpose.

AP: You know, leaving Iraq early just might be a bad idea

From Ace:

Ah. Now that Barack Obama carries the responsibility for carrying the war to ultimate victory, it seems that victory is almost at hand and shouldn’t be unthinkingly squandered.

Funny, when George Bush said that, AP was so much more skeptical.

We can’t have a Democratic President losing a war. The political fallout could be harmful. Only Republicans presidents can — nay, must — lose winnable wars.

Nope…no liberal media bias!
