Rubio’s tax reform plan…

leave a comment »

In the opening paragraph,  Sen. Marco Rubio displays more economic savvy than His Oneness has in six years as President.   I’d like more details,  but the outline  is quite  interesting.

I will say that the Senator’s statement on Mr. Obama’s understanding of the economy is correct.  Both Barack and Michelle Obama have at various times issued statements evidencing that they believe economic winners win by taking from the losers.   They see the  pie as static,  and their only aim is to be in control of selecting the winners.   That is the statist mind at work,  totally incapable of comprehending that the size of the pie can be increased so that everyone benefits.

Such entitlement…

leave a comment »

His Oneness and Our Lady of Perpetual Dissatisfaction have  just wasted another $2 million of your tax dollars by flying to California and back on the same day in two separate planes.

But the Obamas love the little people,  don’t they?   How could we be so churlish as to object to helping out the ultimate power couple who were unable to sync their schedules so that Our Lady didn’t have to twiddle her thumbs for two hours while Oneness swung by a VA hospital and pretended to give a happy damn.

UPDATE:  They blew  even more  of your money than we first calculated.

2014 Christmas leftovers…

leave a comment »

Stephen Moore has devised the  Christmas letter  the Obamas might pen if they were honest and straightforward.   This is  about all His Oneness actually managed on a military base,  in addition to  his Christmas message.   He  did send  Kwanzaa greetings,  a message for a holiday  made-up  by a criminal  black activist,  presented by a pretend president.   Our Lady of Perpetual Dissatisfaction’s  Instagram throwback failed to impress.   Pres. George W. Bush’s  practice of  staying at Camp David until the day after Christmas,  so staff and Secret Service and reporters could spend Christmas day with their families,  still impresses.

Senator-elect James Lankford delivered a  traditional message  on behalf of the GOP.  Sir Winston Churchill did a  lot better  than either of them last century.   So did Pope Francis this year.   Heck,  even Baghdad’s Christians  managed better.

The mountains of Hawaii were under a  blizzard warning  for Christmas,  which was better than shopping under the threat  of lava  flows.   The Chinese China’s Grinch cranked down  another couple  of notches on churches.   Tolkien’s  view of  the season may explain why statists of all stripes,  and progressives,  hate religion in general and Christianity in particular.  Nasty punks in Oakland  went on  a destructive tear,  joined by black mobs  all over the country.

Many people apparently  didn’t like  their presents,  but it seems only one was angry enough to get  tossed off  a plane.   Some people gave remarkable  presents.    If you received  a drone,  the FAA has issued warnings for you.   As usual,  ’tis the season for non-believers  to despise  and denigrate.   It must infuriate them all that believers are generally much  happier than  others.   NBC investigates the meaning of Christmas and fails  to mention  Christ.   Not to be outdone,  Newsweek publishes a  hit piece  smearing the bible and Christians.

A theologian said Jesus  wasn’t born  in a barn,  and he may be correct.   After all,  there are still plenty of places where the ground floor serves as shelter for animals, and the people live above,  benefiting in the winter time from the heat the animals produce.   John Henry Faulk’s story of Christmas  still makes  for interesting reading.

The British monarchy  still does  Christmas festively.   In 1914 Americans did it right by sending a ship with  5 million  presents for Britain’s children who had lost their fathers in the war.   That was also the year of the  Christmas Truce,  which has now  been commemorated  by British and German graffiti artists in London.

P.J. O’Rourke delivered  some amusing  humbug,  and Snoopy showed how most of us felt the  day after.

Obamas to vacation…

leave a comment »

No matter  how much  His Oneness and Our Lady of Perpetual Dissatisfaction are looking forward to their taxpayer-funded,  annual lavish Hawaiian Christmas vacation,  I am even more excited to be rid of them for a couple of weeks.

At least his poor daughters put on smiling faces for  this fundraiser,  after looking like sulky brats for Thanksgiving,  but you can’t really blame the girls for acting like their parents,  can you?

Obama’s Thanksgiving…

leave a comment »

His Oneness has flunked the Thanksgiving proclamation  test yet  again,  as expected.   I confidently predict that he will fail it twice more,  since he has no real understanding of the holiday’s meaning.

My Thanksgiving featured plenty of food and a nice array of desserts,  but certainly not  the six pies  the White House had,  so it’s nice to know the president at least  had to pay  for the food.

White House pix…

leave a comment »

These are  actual signs in the White House,  not products of Photoshop.   Is it any wonder that its occupants are such feckless,  gormless,  profoundly unworthy people?

I’m glad…

…to know that His Oneness  has promised  that Our Lady of Perpetual Dissatisfaction will never run for public office,  but I’m only too well aware Mrs. Obama can do plenty of damage without being elected.
