Obama is flopping around like a fish out of water. He’s still lying, he’s been lying so long over so much to so many that he doesn’t seem to realize most of us don’t believe him anymore. Even his supporters – some of whom declare they will continue to support him – are taken aback by his blatant lying. He increasingly resembles Baghdad Bob, but he seems unable to stop lying. http://dailycaller.com/2013/12/03/krauthammer-its-sort-of-touching-the-way-obama-believes-in-the-power-of-his-rhetoric/
Twitters abound on what to do with those bothersome AARP letters; the AARP heavily pushed ObamaCare passage. That’s when I ended my AARP membership, along with a terse note on the card and an email decrying the liberal makeup of AARP. They didn’t care, and told me so in no uncertain words. http://twitchy.com/2013/12/04/what-do-you-do-with-aarp-junk-mail-8-ways-to-send-an-unforgettable-message-pics/
So a couple of liberal students at a liberal university vandalized the school with hate speech, supposedly done by conservatives. So another hoax perpetrated by liberals. In this case, one of the students was a transgendered person and member of a diversity team designed to deal with hate speech against gays/minorities/protected groups. So, hey, the guy was just trying to drum up a little business for himself and his agency. How many of these liberal hoaxes have occurred within the last year? Last five years? http://dailycaller.com/2013/11/27/exclusive-shocking-discovery-in-hoax-bias-incident-at-vassar-college/
So this group was paid $1 Million by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation to put out stories favorable to ObamaCare? No surprise here. The RWJ Foundation – it’s in Chicago, natch – is well-known for its liberal slant on health information, expensive brochures with slick liberal statistics gladly accepted by news sources and health libraries everywhere. http://capitolcityproject.com/non-partisan-group-paid-1-million-produce-positive-obamacare-stories-close-obama-administration-tied-enroll-america/
An intelligent and well-written column by former Reagan speechwriter Peggy Noonan that pretty much declares Obama dumb and his followers dumber. Noonan is no conservative, and is widely considered a Beltway moderate Republican. http://blogs.wsj.com/peggynoonan/2013/12/03/low-information-leadership/ . This is a significant article.
I have mixed feelings about the Noonan article: If she’s so smart and attuned to politics, why did she vote for Obama in the first place? Why did she dote on him in 2008 and still consider him better than Romney in 2012? If not for journalists like Noonan, Republicans who refuse to support the Republican candidates, we might not be dealing with the “dumb” Obama. Frankly, he’s not any dumber now than he was in 2008. I figured it out, so did plenty of you. Jim Geraghty agrees with me: Welcome to the party, Peggy, kinda late though. http://proteinwisdom.com/?p=52111

About a year ago, I posted about a local column by a self-professed feminist reporter on a book and article criticizing feminist gains at the expense of men. Why, oh why, she lamented must there be comparisons between men and feminists? I responded that feminists have made every gain by comparisons to men. Feminism today is nothing but a lefty ideology of abortion on demand and power for a specific group of elites that does not include white men, prolife women, rural America, blue collar America, big business or conservatives. Feminists don’t support black Mia Love because she’s conservative. Feminists don’t support Sarah Palin because she’s prolife. On and on. Power grab. Just like the diversity/mulitculturism power grab in universities.
Get a load of this woman who’s the CEO of Archie Comics. Can you imagine a white man who’s CEO of a company acting this way? Boycotts, Congressional hearings, protests outside the offices. http://www.jammiewf.com/2013/war-on-men-archie-comics-ceo-accused-of-referring-to-male-employees-as-penis/
The co-CEO of Archie Comics’ says she couldn’t have discriminated against her underlings – because they’re white men.
In papers filed in Westchester Supreme Court, Nancy Silberkleit’s lawyer says a gender discrimination lawsuit filed against her earlier this year by a group of Archie Comics employees should be tossed in part because white guys aren’t members of “a protected class.”
Well! No civil rights for you, white man!
The embattled co-CEO’s filing also mocked the five employees’ claim that she’d used her “gender as a weapon” by yelling “Penis! Penis! Penis!” during a business meeting.
“Plaintiffs fail to allege that any such comments were directed at any of the plaintiffs in particular, or they could cause extreme emotional distress even if they had been,” her court filings say.
The lawyers for the plaintiffs, who include Archie president Mike Pellerito and editor-in-chief Victor Gorelick, countered that Silberkleit used the anatomical term many, many times.
“[T]he word ‘penis’ became somewhat of a campaign slogan and her preferred method of referring to employees in lieu of their names,” their new filing says.
So her defense is that she didn’t say, “Harold, Penis?” BTW white women are a protected group only if they’re liberal. Gotta be part of that lefty ideology or a minority to have any rights or value in Obama’s America. Also – and I know this is just mean of me – but doesn’t she just convey the very image of snotty feminist?
Of all the idiots, the Che devotee may be the biggest idiot. You find them a lot on campus, where kids of privilege love to identify with a “rebel” who wears a cute beret and has a beard. It’s especially idiotic to see a black person wear a Che t-shirt. Bad move, Che didn’t much care for blacks. Che was a fascist, a murderer, an opportunist and overall jerk.
Yet Che was no innocent freedom fighter. Known as ‘the Butcher of La Cabaña’, Che Guevara is known to have ordered the execution of several hundred people he suspected of betraying his communist ideology. Often, he would have his soldiers and commanders shot without trial, in numerous cases performing the executions himself. After successfully taking over Cuba, Guevara proceeded to order the imprisonment of gay men, sought the execution of all political dissidents, severely restricted the press, tried to ban rock and roll music, and drove the Cuban economy into the ground. In his youth, he was even known by many of his friends to be an incurable racist, and rarely bathed. In response to Che’s entirely undeserved popularity among anti-establishment youth in the UK and around the world, many organisations have begun to put up posters with select quotes from the guerrilla fighter, titled, “Can You Tell Who Said What?: Che Guevara or Adolf Hitler.” All the quotes, selected for their brutality, are from Guevara.
3) “The victory of Socialism is well worth millions of atomic victims!”
5) “To send men to the firing squad, judicial proof is unnecessary. These procedures are an archaic bourgeois detail. This is a revolution! And a revolutionary must become a cold killing machine motivated by pure hate.”
8) “The black is indolent and fanciful, he spends his money on frivolity and drink; the European comes from a tradition of working and saving which follows him to this corner of America and drives him to get ahead.”
