They Keep This Up & They're Going To Ruin Our Fun

What are we going to do for entertainment if the "Occupy Wall Street" loons end up killing each other?

Report: Fights erupt among Occupy Wall Street protesters

Oh, dear.

Looks like the best reality show on TV may be coming to an end soon.

Guess we'll have to turn to that program called ...

... oops, looks that that freak show's down the drain too.

What's Good For The Goose ...

This seems only fair:
Richmond tea party: Charge Occupy protesters or refund $10,000 we spent to rally in Virginia
Associated Press

Richmond, Va. — The Richmond tea party is demanding a refund of about $10,000 from the city, claiming it unfairly charged them for rallies while allowing the Occupy protesters to use the same space for several weeks for free.

The political organization is sending the city an invoice for the charges incurred for three rallies held in Kanawha Plaza over the past three years. The Occupy protesters have been camped in the plaza since Oct. 15.

Richmond Tea Party spokeswoman Colleen Owens says it's not fair that her group had to pay fees for permits, portable toilets, police presence and emergency personnel. The group also had to purchase a $1 million insurance policy.

Tea party groups across the nation have raised similar concerns since the protests spread from New York earlier this month. [link]
It seems there are a lot of allowances being made for that stinky, lawless mob of clueless losers who have rallied behind the "Occupy Wall Street" banner.


Yeah, But That's Okay

They're not members of a protected class:

Asian Americans most bullied in US schools: study

Too bad.  If only they were "a minority."  Thus: African-Americans, Native Americans, Hispanic Americans, Disabled Americans, Homosexuals, and Women Only need apply.

Besides, as everyone knows, only gay boys are bullied.

Like I Said

As I wrote the other day in "I've Got A Bad Feeling: I am really not getting the man's say-nothing approach to the issues of the day," Washington Post columnist George Will, too, is troubled by the fact that Mitt Romney has taken positions on every issue of the day; make that lots of positions on every issue of the day.  Says Will in "Mitt Romney, the pretzel candidate":

"A straddle is not a political philosophy; it is what you do when you do not have one."

Yeah, he's better than the hapless, detached community organizer who occupies the White House today.

But Romney's not the guy who's going to dismantle the colossus and save our country.

I'm reminded of the time when Bill Clinton - hero of the news media - that unarguable master of the presidency - came before the American people and told them that he was prepared - at their growing insistence - to cut the federal budget. But when asked where specifically he was prepared to make cuts, he could only come up with the honey beekeeper subsidy.  A mere spit in the ocean.  Needless to say, nothing changed during his reign.  Except the level of fawning from that media.

Romney?  I can't honestly say I expect better from him.

Though better we deserve.

I'm still not sure who that better presidential candidate is, but I'm increasingly sure who it isn't.

OWS Like the Tea Party?

I'm trying to recall any incident at the hundreds of Tea Party rallies that warranted a headline like this:

Flier at Occupy Phoenix asks, “When should you shoot a cop?”

And they called the Tea Partiers terrorists?


I'm Getting Really Tired Of This

Said Obama's top aide: It was so much easier for The Miracle Worker to run the country back when he wasn't running the country and Bush was president.  Now that Obama is in charge and is actually expected to do shit, it's so much more difficult.

I'm not even believing these people.

In "Bill Daley, unplugged":
“It’s been a brutal three years,” he says. “It’s been a very, very difficult three years, an incredible three years. And we are doing all this under the overhang of the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression. F—k! It wasn’t like all this was happening in good times.”
Is this the same bunch who chanted "Yes, we can!" back when they didn't have to?

Let it be remembered that these whiners told us - in 2008, when things were already awful - that they were on top of the problems and were prepared to fix them.

Now it's We thought we could, but we had no idea it was this bad.

Oh, and they expect to get reelected too. Because they are prepared to fix the problems.  Again.

New Obama campaign slogan:

And keep thinking it ...

Gotta Love Them Democratic Strategists

Uh.  Yeah.

Dem strategist: Conservatives like Herman Cain because he’s a black man who knows his place

That "place" being their leader and standard-bearer?

Look.  That kind of nonsense worked in the days of Stepin Fetchit.

But a lot of conservatives today are prepared to elevate Herman Cain to the highest public office in the land.

A "black man who knows his place"?

If "his place" is LEADER OF THE FREE WORLD, it works for me.

I Worry About The Intelligence of Those 'Occupy Wall Street' Warriors

If this wasn't enough to shake one's confidence in their mental capacities ...

... how about this?

Rick Rice thinks that last one might be photoshopped.

Considering the acuity demonstrated by the first sign-holder, and by this ... human being ...

... I think these people are the real deal.

If they represent "the 99%," we're in big trouble.

Best Comeback Line Ever

Received via email:
Police work must be entertaining as well as dangerous. In summary, the police arrested Patrick Lawrence, 22 year old white male, in a pumpkin patch 12.01 A.M. on Friday. On Monday, at the Gwinnett County (Georgia) Courthouse, Lawrence was charged with lewd and lascivious behavior, public indecency, and public intoxication.

The suspect explained that as he was passing a pumpkin patch on his way home from drinking when he decided to stop, "You know how a pumpkin is soft and squishy inside, and there was no one around for miles, or at least I thought there wasn't anyone around," he stated in a telephone interview.

Lawrence went on to say that he pulled over to the side of the road, picked out a pumpkin that he felt was appropriate to his purpose, cut a hole in it, and proceeded to satisfy his alleged need. "Guess I was really into it, you know?" he commented with evident embarrassment.

In the process of doing the deed, Lawrence failed to notice an approaching police car and was unaware of his audience until Officer Brenda Taylor approached him.

"It was an unusual situation, that's for sure," said Officer Taylor. "I walked up to Lawrence and he's just banging away at this pumpkin." Officer Taylor went on to describe what happened when she approached Lawrence.

"'I said, 'Excuse me sir, but do you realize that you're having sex with a pumpkin?'"

He froze and was clearly very surprised that I was there, and then he looked me straight in the face and said... "A pumpkin? Shit ... is it midnight already?"

This was in the Washington Post ... the title of the article was "Best Come Back Line Ever."
