Oh The Horrors!

clipped from

According to the New York Slimes it’s ok for obama, to support throwing a
newborn human survivor of a botched abortion into a dark storeroom to die of
dehydration and exposure

BUT - kill and dress a turkey.??.. OH THE HORRORS..

The NYT is nothing but a bunch of hysterical wusses.

Maybe they ought to ask obama about what happened when his buddy Odinga lost
the election.. You know, the machete murders, the buring of a bunch of refugees
in a church???

Oh, wait a dang minute.. I forgot, he is their chosen messiah and not Gov.
Palin plus those were just political opponents of his friend, not TURKEYS.. Gee
am I stupid or what??

Obama should surely now release the full details of his contractual relationship
with the Bertelsmann Corporation. After all, if one is to judge by his recent
tax returns, even as president, he will be paid far more by Bertelsmann than by
the American taxpayers.
It might be considered irrelevant today that Bertelsmann massively collaborated
with the Nazi regime during World War II.

The Obama team and the Mohns would undoubtedly say that it is scandalous to suggest that the Mohns were using their millions to influence the American presidency or that Obama could possibly be corrupted. But as a reputed former professor of constitutional law, Obama will surely recall the famous words of James Madison in the Federalist Papers: “If men were angels, no government would be necessary.” The president-elect’s most fervent followers may well be convinced that he is divine. But his financial relationship to Bertelsmann proves, after all, that he is only human.

What. A. Surprise.

clipped from

An interesting piece on changes to police tactics. The
traditional response was bring up the SWAT team, plan it out carefully, then go
in. As the matter was better understood, this switched to whoever gets there
first goes in immediately -- seconds passing means people dying. To my mind,
this is a powerful argument for allowing teachers to be armed. The article

"The other statistic that emerged from a study of active killers is that they
almost exclusively seek out "gun free" zones for their attacks.

In most states, concealed handguns are prohibited at schools and on college
campuses even for those with permits.

Many malls and workplaces also place signs at their entrances prohibiting
firearms on the premises.

Now tacticians believe the signs themselves may be an invitation to the
active killers.

As soon as they're confronted by any armed resistance, the shooters typically turn the gun on themselves."

The Microcosm

Bob Cunningham explains how Detroit's Big Three fit in:

The real story is the frightening extent to which Detroit is just the New
Deal U.S. in microcosm...the Big 3 became essentially private versions of the
middle class welfare agencies for providing non-market validated
income, health and retirement benefits, with a sideline of making cars....and
now the model is unsustainable. In part it is because of the burden of the
retired UAW workforce, which now vastly outnumbers the actual working
members. As of 2007, the UAW represented 180,681 members at Chrysler, Ford and
General Motors; it also represented 419,621 retired members and 120,723
surviving spouses.

This is not dissimilar to Social Security and Medicare for the U.S. economy
as a whole. Both of these entitlement programs are unfunded liabilities of the
U.S. government, politically, if not legally, and, on a current basis, consume
almost 50% of the $3 trillion federal budget.

Today's Cloward-Piven Update

clipped from

We can debate whether the policies of Frank, Dodd, Pelosi, Reid et al. accelerated, enhanced, exacerbated or caused the certainty of failures (Shumer’s actions related to Indymac and beyond as Exhibit A).

However, it cannot be seriously debated that it is in the interests of those who thrive on devouring the bloated carcass of an expanding bureaucracy…alternately fatting the beast and gluttonizing upon it…and that “nationalizing” banking and finance, manufacturing, energy, travel, print and airwaves communications, savings, health care, insurance, …would pretty much “tear down the system” of capitalism. Voila! On Ayers, on Dohrn, on Alinsky, Klonsky, Chomsky and Comet. Rudolph the Red knows reign, dear.

Whereupon, we come to Humpty Dumpty’s wall of bureaucratic red tape would put all the king’s horses and all the king’s men into a level of power heretofore not seen since we left the shores across the pond in the 1700’s. We know how that ends each time history has witnessed it…

O's Not The Source

clipped from
Sweetness and Light has an interesting post up.

Among many of the highlighted sentences are these:
A moratorium on foreclosures and evictions. Reset mortgages so payments are affordable. No bail outs for banks.

Extend unemployment compensation, increase payments and eligibility. Increase food stamps, WIC, children's health insurance, and low income energy assistance.


Enact massive public works job creation to make existing buildings energy efficient, construct new schools, hospitals, affordable housing, mass transit and bridges. Priority to areas hurt by loss of manufacturing, loss of family farms and highest unemployment areas including the Katrina-devastated Gulf Coast.
Ratify Kyoto Treaty and other climate change agreements.

Enforce nuclear non-proliferation, work to abolish nuclear weapons. Cut Pentagon spending in half, close down US bases around the world.
The incoming Obama Administration's wish list? Well, yes, but that's not the source.
Etc, etc...

The source would be CPUSA of course...

Shocking I know.
