Alan Grayson: racist liar

Yuck it up, you pond scum excrement. You accuse racism (among other outrageous lies in this short email) with absolutely no evidence at all. So you are the racist, you pathetic loser. Shut your hate hole. (image and article via Weasel Zippers).

tattered boots, bootstraps intact

bootstraps intact

I’m not going to sugar coat it, last night’s results were very bad at the national level. But America has persevered through tough trials before: starvation at Jamestown, seemingly hopeless odds in the American Revolution, Brits burning the White House in the War of 1812, bitter division that stewed for decades leading up to and through the Civil War. We’ve put Jim Crow laws in our past, suffered terrible poverty and the Dust Bowl in the 1930s. We’ve defeated genocidal monsters all over the world. Through each of these seemingly insurmountable challenges, we’ve emerged stronger on the other side. Chin up, young Lady Liberty. Be patient with us – it’s going to take years. But we will not let you down.

exactly which lady part?

Yes, I’m well aware that the left classifies me as a card-carrying Samurai in the War on Women.

that’s me, fighting women

On the other hand, Barack Obama and the left really care about women. Don’t take my word for it, just watch this perverted ad for conclusive proof.

Surely Obama will be quite proud to show that crowning achievement “first time” ad to his grandchildren one day. We “Warriors on Women” have a polar opposite message for the ladies we love: vote for your individual liberties, vote with your God-given ability to reason.

yes, that part

2010 Republican Handshake with Alabama

Since some “Handshake” links from algop.org are now broken (as of October 23, 2012), see below for a full text capture of the 2010 Republican Handshake with Alabama from handshakewithalabama.com. Also, here’s a PDF copy of the Handshake downloaded from kurtwallace2010.com also on October 23, 2012.

Are you terrible at math?

Hair on fire about Mitt’s tax returns?  Let me help you out:  Mitt has earned millions, $0 direct impact on you.  Obama has stolen & wasted trillions of your grandchildren’s yet earned money.  So Obama is very literally a million times worse, and infinitely worse if you have an ounce of intellectual honesty.

Obama didn’t fail

Rush Limbaugh’s hope that Obama would fail has (unfortunately) failed.  Everything that Obama has touched since he became President is a contemptible mess, but that’s not the same as saying that he failed.  He has succeeded beyond all expectations using methods similar to General William Tecumseh Sherman’s – sheer destruction along his entire Presidential march.  Yet in Obama’s case, his ends do not justify his means.  His ends and his means are immoral.  In that way, his Presidency has been closer to Charlie Sheen’s infamous drug-crazed #winning campaign.

Obama has “succeeded” with Sherman-esque means, and #winning ends that’d make Charlie Sheen blush

what individual freedom remains?

Today we frittered away the historically sound legacy of true historical greats. We gave away the foundation of individual freedom that our forefathers fought for and died to defend. We surrendered the very essence of this country. For what? To stroke an arrogant, misguided, impossible fool – a small man, a temporary politician unworthy of his post. Welcome to the US, our dying soft (currently hardening) tyranny. To future generations, some of us are immeasurably sorry for the harm we’ve inflicted on you. We fought this, I shed tears this morning – but we failed you.

Mr. Cain, please raise more Cain

Mr. Cain, please toughen your fiscal criticism of the US Government. In your Cain Commentary this morning, you used the following phrases: “patchwork”, “Taxmageddon”, “recent history […] does not inspire confidence”, “Congress can never seem to agree”, “serious drag on economic growth”, and “endless tinkering”.  Those phrases are listed here out of context (guilty as charged), but hopefully that choice won’t detract from this request.

a humble request for Mr. Cain

“Patchwork” brings to mind a nice quilt Grandma made. “Taxmageddon” sounds like late-night Discovery Channel fare. Compare your words to the current Wikipedia words remembering Charles Keating’s legal consequences for his involvement in the 1980s S&L Scandal: “duped”, “worthless”, “junk bonds”, “fraud”, “racketeering”, and “conspiracy”.

Presidents and Congressmen can and do use words like “patchwork” and “endless tinkering” to defer blame away from themselves when it comes to taxes and government spending. That’s not leadership.  These servants’ actions (or inexcusable inaction) would be high crimes in any other setting. Mr. Keating’s fraud was in the single digit billions, for which he spent 4.5 years in jail. Our federal government defrauds our future generations of tens of trillions. And yet, too many modern US politicians act as if the true question should be “who’s counting?”  If those politicians aren’t actively working or supporting virtuous economic purpose, we must frame our criticism in criminal terms.

As Doug Bandow points out today at American Spectator, even the CBO admits we’re headed to national insolvency very soon.  Bandow explains why even these reports are too optimistic, because they include fairy tale projections (i.e. fraudulent budgeting).

Propagandists, all together now!

Real Clear Politics, the Weekly Standard, and Politico set the “heckle” bar pretty darned low, especially when carrying the water for the Beloved One.  MSNBC also led the “heckle” echo chamber, but also astutely (cough) observed the “racism” involved.

So there you have it, my friends:  “heckle” is the newspeak word of the day, meaning “to dare expect Obama to field a tough question” or “to disagree with an Obama policy (usually risked only by a racist)”.

a followup question for Spike Lee

After watching Spike Lee’s 2012 Sundance “rant” (I’m willing to give him a break because he didn’t start dropping gratuitous F-bombs until Chris Rock primed the pump with his question), and reading his entire June 12 GQ interview, I’d like to address the portion of the GQ interview that raised so much attention this week:

GQ: The election is coming up. You’ve been a big supporter of Barack. Why do you think so many people are so critical of him?
Spike Lee: I can’t say to all the people that are unhappy with him that they’re racist people. People ain’t got jobs, people are hurting. So I don’t care what color you are, if people are out of work, it’s tough. And then when you’re the first African American president, that’s not helping either.

a followup question for Spike Lee

Spike, you “can’t say […] all the people that are unhappy with [Obama] […] [are] racist people.”  And you go on to say “when you’re the first African American president, that’s not helping.”  I don’t understand what you meant by that second part, but I’m more focused on the first part.  If you can’t say all the people who oppose Obama are racist, can you name one who’s racist?  You made the charge, so you should bear the burden of evidence.  I don’t support Obama at all, and yet I have not one racist bone in my body.  Why the need for floating an unsupported charge of racism?  Doesn’t that cheapen instances of true racism in the past?
