LSM Shrugged

The liberal lame stream media supports big bloated government and over regulation.  What they fail to understand is that a government big enough to control almost every aspect of life from individual health care to the content of radio programs will eventually get around to regulating out their sacred first amendment free speech. In effect these useful idiots are contributing to their own destruction.  Why?
Who is John Galt?

Giving Thanks

Every day is Thanksgiving Day for me.  I am indeed blessed. These are a few things for which I am thankful.

I am thankful that my mother and father met and married even though they lived in a sparsely populated rural area around Montreal Canada.

I am thankful that they chose to migrate to the United States to improve the standard of living for them and their children even though they left behind many close relatives and friends.

I am thankful they decided to have one more child (me) after already having five during the worst depression in this country’s history.

I am thankful I was born and raised in the greatest country in the world.

I am thankful that my parents taught me to be honest, thrifty, hard working and to plan for the future.

I am thankful they baptized and raised me in the Catholic faith and sent me to a Catholic grade school at their own expense.

I am thankful there was an affordable college close by that I could afford without accumulating significant debt or over burdening my parents.

I am thankful my circle of friends in college were mostly married military veterans on the GI bill who were hard working and dedicated to getting a good education and taught me how to study.

I am thankful I met Nancy in a crowded drive-in restaurant and she later agreed to marry me even though we had so little time to date between my college and working evenings and weekends.

I am thankful for our 3 healthy offspring and for Nancy who raised them very well with little help from me because I was absent so much between work, school and extensive business travel.

I am thankful I lived and worked in a relatively free economy that rewarded hard work.

I am thankful that none of our immediate family has had serious life threatening illnesses.

I am thankful that all three of our children avoided the drugs, alcohol and other social corruptions of many of their peers and grew up sharing our values and are now married and have children of their own.

I am thankful for our grandchildren who are healthy, happy and well adjusted.

I am thankful we have not been adversely affected by a natural disaster even though we live in an active earthquake region.

I am thankful that I have SO MUCH to be thankful for.

John Kerry: Media Should ‘Not Give Equal Time’ to Tea Party

John Kerry (D-MA) does not believe the media should give equal time to the tea party.


Apparently he only supports equal time for movements with which he agrees.  So much for the left wing liberal "Fairness Doctrine".

Crime and Punishment

Thirty two year old Norwegian Anders Behring Breivik is suspected of killing about 92 people in Norway, 85 of which were teenagers.  The lame stream media, specifically NBC News, stated 3 times that the suspect is not a Muslim extremist.  They reported, with righteous indignation, he is a right wing Christian conservative as though his acts reflects poorly on Christians even though they espouse that terrorist acts by Muslim extremists do not reflect poorly on Muslims. This is just another example of the LSM bias.

In Norway the maximum prison sentence for ANY crime is 21 years.  If Anders is tried and convicted in a Norway court the maximum sentence he will receive is 21 years so he will be free at the age of only 53 years after killing almost 100 people.  How ignorant can a country be???

War Powers Act

Let me start by saying I am no expert on the War Powers Act so if you stop reading at this point it is understandable.

As I understand it the WPA allows the president to engage in military hostilities against a sovereign nation provided he reports to congress within 60 days so they can decide whether or not to declare war. (Only congress can declare war, not the president.) Recall George Bush obtained congressional authorization for military action in Afghanistan and Iraq.

The 60 day WPA window is closing on the US Libyan hostilities.  Barrack Obama is claiming the WPA does not apply because troops are not in harms way on the ground. By that logic, Japan did not engage in military hostilities when they attacked Pearl Harbor.

Weiner's Weiner

The US is involved in three wars, many middle eastern countries are in chaos, many areas in the US have been stricken by natural disasters, our economy is in shambles, we have presidential primary elections just over the horizon yet the first story on all three national evening news programs is about a perverted New York Congressman. Americans are being ill served by the lame stream media in this country.

That said, I am amazed that after lying to them over and over for more than a week, 53% of Weiner's constituents do not think he should resign according to a recent poll.  To the best of my knowledge, every national politician, liberal or conservative, that had a sex scandal has either resigned or been elected out of office except Bill Clinton. This story, unfortunately, has not yet played out.

Natures Payback

Tonight ABC News reported that the deadly tornado in Joplin MO may be the result of global warming.  That may or may not be the case but what they claimed next revealed their clear bias toward the man made global warming religious cult.  They referred to the tragedy as natures payback implying that humans have violated nature somehow and nature is retaliating. This moronic statement exposes them as members of the man made global warming religious cult.

Wet Streets Cause Rain, Part II

The federal deficit in 2011 is predicted to be $1.5 trillion, 40% of the 2011 budget!   

Only 53% of wage earners pay all federal income taxes.  47% pay no federal income tax.

So the left wing liberal politicians conclude the problem is that the 53% are under taxed!

Really? Really? Really?

Don't tax you,
Don't tax me,
Tax the man behind the tree.
(Russell Long, Louisiana)

Pro Choice vs Pro Life

The lame stream media has done a good job educating the US public about the meaning of  the "pro choice" and "pro life" labels.  But here is what they fail to explain.

A CONSERVATIVE is pro choice when they are talking about school vouchers, union membership, light bulbs, gun ownership, health insurance, etc.

A LIBERAL is pro life when they are talking about convicted murders, rapists and terrorists.

Why Public Sector Unions Should Be Illegal

Two states (Virginia and North Carolina) prohibit public sector unions but not private sector unions. Why?

Here are the main differences between private vs public sector collective bargaining.

1. Conflict of interest: Unlike private sector unions public sector unions wield power over their government counterparts. Government depends on the support of public union members to help their re-election. Public sector unions support government bosses with their votes, their money and election organizing.

2. No skin in the game: Government negotiators are giving away other peoples money. They have little to lose personally by their give a ways.

3. No accountability: Government negotiators have little/no accountability to the general public. The persons most negatively affected by their incompetence are the very young and the unborn that cannot vote.

4. Motivation: While private sector negotiators are motivated to keep their company competitive to keep their jobs there is no similar motivation with government sector negotiators.

With all these advantages public sector unions have the power to plunder state treasuries and bankrupt state and local governments.

Wisconsin Teacher Protest

Wisconsin teachers are protesting state budget cuts needed to balance the state budget that reduce teacher salaries and benefits. The cut also affect many other department budgets and state employees.  After implementation the average state employee wage and benefits would still be better than the average non-government employee that is paying their salaries. Some teachers are in Madison protesting rather than at work teaching their students.  Those who lie by claiming they are sick should be disciplined or fired.

With all the whining and temper tantrums you have to wonder if Wisconsin children are learning from the teachers or the teachers are learning from the children.  Waa, waa, waa.

Love vs Greed

We had a visiting priest celebrating Mass this weekend.  The topic of his sermon was love vs selfish greed. He told a joke to make his point.

A 60 year old couple were walking down the beach when they found a magic bottle.  When they opened the bottle a Genie came out and, as a reward for freeing him, offered each of them a free wish.  After some thought the wife asked for a one year trip around the world for her and her husband.
She was given first class tickets and hotel reservations and $50,000 for meals.
After much thought the husband asked for a wife 20 years younger than himself.
He became 80 years old.

There is no i in love but there is in live.

Exploiting Tragedy For Political Gain

Rahm Emanuel stated “Never let a crisis go to waste.” Prominent left wing liberals (including politicians and the lame stream media) are masters of that philosophy. When a deranged individual shoots 19 people and kills at least 6 in Tucson, left wing liberals immediately sprang into action. First they tried to blame the tee party movement, Sarah Palin, talk radio hosts and Fox News accusing them of inciting violence while ignoring the hate speech of the left during the Bush administration. Then they seized on the (crisis) opportunity to advance liberal causes including gun control, radio content control and internet control.

In my view most liberal causes are an affront to liberty rejected by the vast majority of Americans unless scared into submission by phony crises such as uninsured health care, man made global warming, financial meltdown or even the tragedy of a psychotic gunman.

Arizona Congresswoman Shot

This afternoon Arizona Democratic Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords was shot in the head
by a crazed mass murderer.  When asked if Gabrielle had any enemies her father replied "Only the tee party.".  The shooter has been identified as 22 year old Jared Lee Loughner.
Jared sure does NOT look like a Tee Party supporter to me.
