Speaks Volumes

The same people who applaud the efforts of the locals to bring 19th century technology to Roanoke so that they can get to Washington D.C. inconveniently, inefficiently, non-environmentally, and expensively also come out in support of snail mail.

What next?  Crying out for the return of the barouche?

Cause & Effect

I'm reminded of how liberals do their level best to drive oil prices up and then decry the price poor people will have to pay for home heating oil come wintertime. Does that make sense? Not on this planet.

Along the same lines, remember that Roanoke Times story from not long ago about certain sections of the city of Roanoke, Virginia being "food deserts"?  (A food desert being defined in the article as being "an area where residents are poor, lack transportation and have no supermarkets nearby to supply healthy food choices.")

The conservative response to such a circumstance: Clean up that section of town, make it inviting to capital, and it'll correct itself.  You'll have more "healthy food" than you can ever need.  Or pack your bags and move.

The liberal response: We need to feed those poor slobs.  Let's set up a government-run soup kitchen.

What you'll never read as a liberal response to the plight of the poor?  The best solution of all.

See "Dems Say No Thanks to Walmart Offer to Eliminate Food Desert."

A Wal-mart?! With all its low-priced food?!  Can't be having that.

Let the poor bastards starve.

How do you deal with idiots like these?

In West Virginia, The Chant Goes Up ...

... More of the Same!  More of the Same!  More of the Same!

Democrat Earl Ray Tomblin wins West Virginia special election


And yet again the chant goes up:

Mississippi is still worse! Mississippi is still worse! Mississippi is still worse!

Some folks in Virginia's wayward western counties (they prefer to call their section of the Commonwealth "West Virginia") refer to their poverty-plagued region as "The Panhandle State."

And, from the result obtained in yesterday's election - another election, another Democrat put in charge, one of many over the last sixty years, more poverty, more degradation, more ... panhandling,  they seem to take pride in that motto.

It took them a lot of hard work over the years to get them to 49th place.  May they take satisfaction in their achievement.

Separated At Birth

Doesn't Vice President Biden seem to be the spitting image - in countenance and in IQ - of Commandant Eric Lassard?


(Except for the well-done hair grafting of the dolt on the right.)

See "Vice President Joe Biden doesn't know who Van Jones is." You'll understand what I mean.

Another Rich Black Guy Talking About How Tough It Is

Samuel L. Jackson, actor and self-appointed psychoanalyst:

"The division of the country is not about the government having too much power. I think everything right now is geared toward getting that guy out of office, whatever that means. It's not politics. It is not economics. It all boils down to pretty much to race. It is a shame."

If that were the case, dumbass, I wouldn't have contributed to your enormous wealth over the years.

Care to explain that?

Makin' 'Em Run In Circles

This is hilarious.  Barack Obama a few weeks ago introduced a "jobs bill" intended to (a) put Republicans on the defensive by forcing them to vote against a "jobs bill," and (b) get him reelected.  (So you know, it had nothing to do with jobs.)

Then President Obama launched his road tour denouncing the GOP at sundry stops for not passing his "jobs bill" "now."

See "Obama Attacks [Republican Representative Eric] Cantor Over Jobs Bill" in today's news.

Well, I want to hear the genius explain this:

Dems Block McConnell Bid to Call Vote on Obama Jobs Bill

So a Republican - Senator Mitch McConnell - wants to give the president exactly what he says he wants - a vote - but Democrats refuse.

It don't get better than this.

What Drives 'Occupy Wall Street'?

I'll leave it up to the executive editor of The Nation, the most radically leftist media outlet in America, to give definition to the movement to which only a drugged-up, under-aged half-wit can relate.

Betsy Reed:

"Maybe this will go nowhere too. The odds are against it, after all. But what do we have to lose? We have to try something new."

To arms! To the ramparts! Prepare for the revolution! It's a good day to die in the name of ...

... "something."

These people crack me up.

For further amusement, here's a quote from Michelle Malkin:
The protesters who gripe about being up their eyeballs in college debt (actually, it’s usually mom and dad who are up to their eyeballs) will protest the squandering of their future by squandering time away from the classroom sipping Snapple, munching Powerbars, Tweeting from their iPads, and bemoaning the homicidal corporatization of America.
In truth, the "protesters" are too stupid to associate Snapple®, Powerbars®, Twitter®, and iPads® with corporations. Those, after all, are good things. Yummy things.  Fun things.  Corporations, well, they're bad things.

I'm lovin' this. I hope the protesters extend their jihad right on into winter. What an ongoing hoot.

- - -

Food for thought:

If the purpose of this "movement" is anarchy, and the effort of the pimple-plagued "occupy something" protesters melts into "chaos," haven't they achieved their goal?

- - -

How about this for amusement?  Protesters set up a tent city in Boston and ...

... it attracts all the city's homeless people.

They're willing to stand up to The Man.  But can they deal with body odor, diarrhea, and puke in the tent they "occupy"?

Stay tuned ...

They Can't Take The Heat

Even though there's been very little media heat applied over the last three years.

Here's a reporter - one - who dared defy the Obama administration by reporting on the developing (no thanks to the rest of the press) Fast and Furious scandal in which Eric Holder's Department of Justice sold guns to Mexican drug cartels, one of which was subsequently used to kill an American border agent.

From NewsBusters:
CBS's Sharyl Attkisson revealed on Tuesday's "Laura Ingraham Show" the extent of the rage directed at her from the Obama administration for her reporting on the "Fast and Furious" controversy: "The DOJ woman was just yelling at me. A guy from the White House on Friday night literally screamed at me and cussed at me." Attkisson also stated that "they think I'm unfair and biased by pursuing it."

They will tell you that I'm the only reporter - as they told me - that is not reasonable. They say 'The Washington Post' is reasonable, the 'LA Times' is reasonable, 'The New York Times' is reasonable- I'm the only one who thinks this is a story, and they think I'm unfair and biased by pursuing it.
It's an interesting definition that the White House has when it comes to the media and "fairness." By "fairness" the lowlifes there mean stick to the playbook. As the New York Times and the Washington Post and the L.A. Times have obediently done.

Well get to the bottom of this story. We will get no help from those really ... fair ... mainstream press outlets. But we're going to get to the bottom of this story.

Heads Up

From the George Allen for U.S. Senate campaign:
George Allen To Unveil “Freedom To Work” Agenda
Wednesday, October 5, 2011

Henrico, VA –George Allen will be visiting Dynax America in Botetourt County on Wednesday, October 5th at 1:00 PM to take a plant tour and unveil his new three-part “Freedom to Work” agenda that will help businesses create jobs, save taxpayers money, and protect the liberty of working men and women.

WHAT:
Town Hall with Dynax America Employees

WHEN:
October 5th, 2011 at 1:00 PM

WHERE:
Dynax America
568 East Park Drive
Roanoke, VA 24019
In this an era - if brief - of America's unions thinking they can intimidate We the People with threats and coercion, Allen's move is rather gutsy, I think.
