Are mutually exclusive. Always have been….and what’s worse, now that their Bush-bashing days are over, the sniping vacuous liberals and their moral relativism and equivocation…has FINALLY come under the national spotlight– joining the conspicuous glare with Obama. Even the MSM can’t cover their hideous assault on moral absolutes.
The Obama administration and the new Congress are quickly handing over to Republicans the same “culture of corruption” issue that Democrats used so effectively against the GOP before coming to power.
Freshman Sen. Roland Burris, D-Ill., is only the latest embarrassment.
The political mess for the Democratic Party, however, isn’t Burris’ conduct alone; it’s the pattern that has developed so quickly over the past few months.
-The chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, Rep. Charles Rangel, D-N.Y., is the subject of a House ethics investigation. It’s partly focused on his fundraising practices for a college center in his name, his ownership financing of a resort property in the Dominican Republic and his financial disclosure reports.
-Federal agents raided two Pennsylvania defense contractors that were provided millions of dollars in federal funding by Rep. John Murtha, D-Pa., chairman of the House Appropriations defense subcommittee.
–Blagojevich was arrested Dec. 9 on federal charges, including allegations he schemed to sell the Senate seat to the highest bidder.
–Tom Daschle, the former Senate majority leader from South Dakota, abandoned his bid to become health and human services secretary and the administration’s point man on reforming health care; and Nancy Killefer stepped down from a newly created position charged with eliminating inefficient government programs.
-Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner was confirmed after revealing he had tax troubles.
-Obama’s initial choice for commerce secretary, Bill Richardson, stepped aside due to a grand jury investigation into a state contract awarded to his political donors.
I mean c’mon….is this an absolute HOOT? Heck, if ‘the list’ gets any longer- Guinness World Records will be calling them. I haven’t seen this many names in one place…
…since I picked up a Los Angeles PHONEBOOK!

Good grief, exactly WHEN did cutting off someone’s head become the norm? I use to think it was a creepy and horrible Middle East Muslim thing….then I thought it was an evil Mexican Drug Cartel thing….now it’s an American Muslim and entrepreneur thing.
Orchard Park [Buffalo] police are investigating a particularly gruesome killing, the beheading of a woman, after her husband — an influential member of the local Muslim community- reported her death to police Thursday.
Muzzammil Hassan told police that his wife was at his business, Bridges TV, on Thorn Avenue in the village. Officers went to that location and discovered her body.
Muzzammil Hassan is the founder and chief executive officer of Bridges TV, which he launched in 2004, amid hopes that it would help portray Muslims in a more positive light.
Well….Hassan, here’s a newsflash. If you indeed LOPPED off your wife’s head…..you might want to rethink your idea of portraying Muslims ‘in a more positive light’.
Authorities say Aasiya Hassan recently had filed for divorce from her husband.
I’ve got bad news for you Mr. Hassan- in prison- YOU’LL be the one wearing the burqa.

If I were you, I’d skip that vacation to Cancun. Down in Mexico…the bad guys always win. Yesterday, the anti-drug chief turned up dead….after ONE DAY on the job.
A recently retired Mexican army general whose bullet-riddled body was found Tuesday near Cancun had taken over as the area’s top antidrug official less than 24 hours earlier, officials said.
Retired Gen. Mauro Enrique Tello Quiñonez, his aide and a driver were tortured before being killed, said Quintana Roo state prosecutor Bello Melchor Rodriguez y Carrillo. He said there was no doubt Tello and the others were victims of organized crime.
“The general was the most mistreated,” Rodriguez said at a Tuesday night news conference monitored by El Universal newspaper. “He had burns on his skin and bones in his hands and wrists were broken.”
An autopsy revealed Tello also suffered broken knees and was shot 11 times, Mexico City’s Excelsior newspaper said.
Gee, how pleasant.
Why would anyone take that job? I mean…unless Mexican President, Felipe Calderón, sends in a MASSIVE force of National Guard to eradicate the drug lords and the drug cartels in places like Acapulco and Cancun, nothing is going to change.

The NY Times is at it…again. Coloring all Americans who are against amnesty and want enforcement of our immigration laws as ‘racists’. On this issue, liberals are incapable of connecting the dots. Seriously. Liberals are incapable of critical thinking.
For some reason, which scientists who study brain activity have yet to identify, they can’t fathom that we are a NATION OF LAWS. That if people violate those laws, they should pay for their transgressions. Simple really. And if you don’t like the laws then you CHANGE THEM. But until then, shut up already. And yes….here’s a shocker….hold those who broke the law– accountable!
The Nativists are Restless
The relentlessly harsh Republican campaign against immigrants has always hidden a streak of racialist extremism. Now after several high-water years, the Republican tide has gone out, leaving exposed the nativism of fringe right-wingers clinging to what they hope will be a wedge issue.
Last week at the National Press Club in Washington, a group seeking to speak for the future of the Republican Party declared that its November defeats in Congressional races stemmed not from having been too hard on foreigners, but too soft.
The group, the American Cause, released a report arguing that anti-immigration absolutism was still the solution for the party’s deep electoral woes, actual voting results notwithstanding. Rather than “pander to pro-amnesty Hispanics and swing voters,” as President Bush and Karl Rove once tried to do, the report’s author, Marcus Epstein, urged Republicans to double down on their efforts to run on schemes to seal the border and drive immigrants out. This is nonsense, of course.
The NY Times, in particular, is famous for pulling out the Thesaurus or the Dictionary every time they want to marginalize the debate. This time the word is ‘nativist’. With Muslim psychopaths it was ‘insurgents’ or with their murdering behavior it was ‘restive’. How odd is it that they use the term ‘racial extremism’ and ‘fringe right wingers’ in the text, but title the article: The Nativists are Restless?
By assigning a thesaural word like nativist, they attempt to make it an intellectual debate…as if somehow, they’ve armed themselves with superior grammar and vocabulary. Well sorry fellas…I’m onto your pseudo-erudite manipulation.
You’re full of lexical feces, plain and simple.

Over the last year and a half, I’ve offered up a few of my reasons for leaving California. Although TOO NUMEROUS to mention, there were several that stood out. Hmmm…it looks like, I’m not alone.
Go East, young man? Californians look for the exit
Mike Reilly spent his lifetime chasing the California dream. This year he’s going to look for it in Colorado. With a house purchase near Denver in the works, the 38-year-old engineering contractor plans to move his family 1,200 miles away from his home state’s lemon groves, sunshine and beaches.
For him, years of rising taxes, dead-end schools, unchecked illegal immigration and clogged traffic have robbed the Golden State of its allure.
The clogged traffic? Um….only because 4 or 5 MILLION illegal immigrants walk the streets. Heck…the sidestreets are worse than the freeways.
The number of people leaving California for another state outstripped the number moving in from another state during the year ending on July 1, 2008. California lost a net total of 144,000 people during that period — more than any other state, according to census estimates. That is about equal to the population of Syracuse, N.Y.
The state with the next-highest net loss through migration between states was New York, which lost just over 126,000 residents.
Wasn’t I just mentioning New York? Uh….by George Stephanopoulos…I certainly was!
Why are so many looking for an exit?
Among other things: California’s unemployment rate hit 8.4 percent in November, the third-highest in the nation, and it is expected to get worse. A record 236,000 foreclosures are projected for 2008, more than the prior nine years combined, according to research firm MDA DataQuick. Personal income was about flat last year.
With state government facing a $41.6 billion budget hole over 18 months, residents are bracing for higher taxes, cuts in education and postponed tax rebates.
You can’t say, I didn’t warn you. I’ve blogged about this debacle, ’til I’m blue in the face. And let’s put it this way…(and in my best Arnold Schwarzenegger voice)… I’ll NOT be back.

By now, you and countless millions have seen the video. You’ve seen President Bush deftly duck a size 10 shoe being thrown at him, not once- but TWICE. Evidently, an irate Iraqi journalist called him a dog and began hurling insults along with his shoes.
The brother of the journalist now famous for hurling his shoes at President Bush said his sibling’s actions were “spontaneous” and represented millions of Iraqis who want to “humiliate the tyrant.”
Dhirgham al-Zaidi, who sometimes worked as his brother’s cameraman, described the reporter’s hatred for the “material American occupation” and the “moral Iranian occupation.”All that makes for great TV, but you gotta admit- the guy looked and acted JUST LIKE all those unhinged liberal retards who attempt to interrupt speeches, and meetings, and hearings, and….and…oh heck…the list goes on and on. Admittedly, the two shoes weren’t PIES, but the intent was the same. I will say this…one thing is clear about liberals:
Throwing a tantrum and acting childish seems to be important to them.

Every now and then…someone makes a statement that rocks me to my core. Yah. Something is said that is so profound..that I have to abruptly sit down- gasping for breath, my mind reeling in awe. I look on in splendor at their brilliance. The jaw-dropping acumen. The unbelievably clever insight…OMG, such perspicacity!
Over the weekend, that momentous remark came from a union.
Wal-Mart death preventable, union says
The death of a temporary Wal-Mart worker trampled by customers amid frantic Black Friday shopping could have been avoided, the union that represents retail workers said Saturday.
Steady….stay with me. I know. You’re rattled to the bone- to the very essence of your being. You mean to tell me, that man DIDN’T HAVE TO DIE?
Uh….leave it to a union man to say something my FIVE YEAR OLD boy could’ve said.
“This incident was avoidable,” said Bruce Both, president of the United Food and Commercial Workers Union Local 1500, the state of New York’s largest grocery worker’s union.
No, what couldn’t be avoided…was a union leader, with an ax to grind against Walmart, using the spotlight to say something..SO OBVIOUS…SO BANAL- that my kid would be embarrassed to say in front of his Pre-K friends.
Shut your piehole Local 1500. Of course this was preventable….and it starts with the animal-like ‘groupthink’ behavior of the mob- as they bum-rushed the store.

What the heck is going on in Thailand? I love this Buddhist country….I’ve been to this peaceful place…not once, but…TWICE. Four years ago, they were hit by a tsunami that wiped out Phuket. God Bless them….they managed to survive that. Then, murdering Muslims decided to amp up their discontent in the south.
And now this?
Flights into Thailand have been thrown into chaos Wednesday after explosions at two Bangkok airports wounded four people and triggered the closure of its main international gateway– a major hub in the region for travelers.The blasts come a day after thousands of anti-government protesters stormed the airports to protest the return of Thai Prime Minister Somchai Wongsawat from the APEC summit in Peru.
Anti-government group People’s Alliance for Democracy (PAD) has accused his government of being a front for ousted former Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra.
A natural disaster- I get. Angry murdering Muslims- I understand. This?uh…not so much.
Pro- and anti-government protesters also exchanged gunfire, a Thai police official said. Protesters with golf clubs and long wooden sticks also clashed with airport taxi drivers, with each side throwing things at the other.
I’m in shock…I’m still trying to picture this. Trust me…this use to be a peaceful place.

This kind of story makes me explode. Think: bellicose, truculent, and pugnacious- only psychotic. (And I’m trying to be polite for the liberals that read this.) Yah. Seems political correctness and the ‘rule of law for one person’ has struck again. And this time- the online dating service, eHarmony.com, had to capitulate. Yep. Nothing like a fallacious lawsuit to make someone bend to your will.
Online dating site eHarmony will create a service for same-sex matching in a settlement of a 2005 complaint that the company’s failure to offer such a service was discriminatory.
Under terms of the agreement with the New Jersey attorney general’s office, eHarmony Inc. will start the service, called Compatible Partners, by March 31.
The settlement also requires eHarmony to pay plaintiff Eric McKinley $5,000 and to pay the New Jersey Division on Civil Rights $50,000 to cover administrative expenses.
This kind of Jackboot lawyering is why our country is so wacked. Not only does eHarmony have to provide a new service to all gays- they have to PAY the plaintiff to cover his expenses. How INSANE is that?
And people wonder why Americans have started pushing back? Forcing a company or a person to embrace YOUR belief or YOUR grievance breeds intolerance not tolerance. I’ve had it with this ‘tiny minority is the majority’ mentality.
I can’t put into words how pernicious this is. Unbelievable.

Looks like those murdering jihadists who were responsible for the bombings in Bali in 2002- have been given ‘death by firing squad’.
Good riddance. Oh…and make sure you bury these Muslim psychopaths face down….so they can see Hell.
Three men convicted of carrying out two nightclub bombings that killed 202 people on the resort island of Bali six years ago will be executed by firing squad next month, Indonesian authorities said.
The men showed neither fear nor remorse in a recent interview with CNN.
The deadly blasts ripped through two popular nightclubs in Bali’s Kuta in October 2002. Most of the dead were young Australians. More than 300 people were wounded. Dozens of victims were burned beyond recognition or blown to pieces by the massive blasts.
Leave it to CNN to check in on them…to try and appreciate how ‘they feel’ and to try and find out why they’re so UPSET and ANGRY….and so MISUNDERSTOOD. Afterall, it’s the evil Westerners’ fault. Let’s make sure we engage in constructive dialogue…to try and ‘reach out’ to them….so that we can bridge our differences…..and….and….can’t we all just get along!
The pain and suffering these 3 animals have caused…takes your breath away. But the good news is: their breath will be permanently taken away.
