Jersey fix going in…

leave a comment »

New Jersey Democrats are terrified about the gubernatorial race, so they’re doing exactly as you would expect — putting a convenient fix in place just in case the luminous,  repeated presence of His Oneness and all the behind-the-scenes help of his staff aren’t sufficient to convince Jersey voters to re-elect Mr.  More-of-the-Same.

Fish funeral…

Wait a few more hours and someone will  blame this on global warming — no , no, it’s climate change now, isn’t it?  They have to cover all temperature variations,  you know,  because stupid old Earth has stubbornly refused to get any warmer since 1998.

Happy 40th, Net…

Happy 40th birthday to the Internet,  a military invention which I once thought might free us from an encroaching government.    I’m hoping for a guest post on this sometime later,  and will update then.

Citizenship for census?

leave a comment »

Do you think it Is unreasonable to ask the citizenship status of  those filling out the census?   Democrats do,  more particularly what’s  being described as a “coalition of black, Latino and Asian” Democrats,  who falsely claim that Republicans don’t want to county everybody.   Read Andy McCarthy’s  explanatory post at The Corner.

And then consider just how seriously any of the Democrats have taken their many oaths of office.   Most of the states with high illegal immigrant rates are under Democrat control.    They depend on wrongly inflated population numbers to get more federal dollars and to retain undue influence.

Dover deception…

leave a comment »

His Oneness made a midnight visit to Dover, Delaware to pay tribute to the troops returning in caskets.    Of course,  Obama could get his photo snapped there, because he lifted the ban on photos.    His  claim about  the trip is demonstrably false,  because if he were so concerned about the troops,  he would send them what they need to accomplish the mission.    I’m not alone in thinking this.

If you’ll remember,  when he went to Germany to make his citizen-of-the-world campaign speech,  he was going to visit US military personnel in hospital there,  but no photos were allowed,   and his schedule suddenly allowed little time for the visit.

Obama went to Dover to help himself,   not to show respect for the dead,  because he has already given the military more than ample reason to distrust him.    If he does the sort of half-measures in Afghanistan that Senators John Kerry and Carl Levin are mouthing off about,  he will succeed in reminding voters that liberals see the military as a place to conduct social engineering and pay for pet pork projects —-merely another chess piece to be shoved around the political board.

Bush, Cheney and Rumsfeld made many trips to hospitals where they actually visited wounded troops,  and the media rarely reported even the few it new about.   I’m fortunate enough to know a  couple of who received such visits,  and to a man they appreciated that the visits were personal,  not for media consumption,  and they found their visitors astonishingly approachable.

I recently contacted them again to see what they thought of Cheney’s speaking out on the issues,  and they all approved.  How liberals,  which includes most of the media,  really feel about the military is nicely illustrated in  this joke.
