You know I find it ironic how diametrically opposite the opinions of some individuals can be depending on who is in the White House. Take for instance the liberal talking head on FoxNews earlier today who was bragging about how tough Obama has been because of all his drone strikes in Pakistan. Compare that to how the left vilified Bush while he was in office for any drone strikes. Now the fact that Obama has had many more drone strikes than Bush is considered something to brag about. Consider also how incensed the left was during the Bush Administration because we were in 2, what they call, illegal wars. Compare that to the absolute lack of any outrage over the fact that it is quietly reported Obama has sent troops into 75 sovereign nations. So Bush entering 2 wars while involving Congress is warmongering and illegal while Obama lobbing drone based missiles into places who are supposedly our allies, against their permission and having combat troops in 75 countries is neither warmongering or illegal? I’m sure the left can come up with a perfectly irrational explanation to justify this. The reality is that it has to do only with the R or the D behind the name of the person in the office.
Well the headlines are out, Mitt Romney only paid around 14% in taxes last year. The spin is in full swing. What you will not find out is the fact that this was not from Income Taxes which he had already paid but interest so he is basically being taxed a second time. Also the fact that he paid about 30% of his income to charities is hid quite deep in each story I have read. The fact that he only claimed around 1% of his charitable givings on his taxes thereby paying a higher rate than the law requires is also buried deep. Something else missing? The fact that those who are most vocal about him releasing his taxes, people like Harry Reid and Debbie Wasserman Schultz have refused to release theirs.
From Merriam Webster:
It is curious that leftists are constantly preaching at those of us on the right about our tone, the level of discourse and etc. Yet all I seem to find from the left is petty, childish, slanderous, mud slinging and name calling. Take for example the Democrat Congressional Campaign Committee. This is not supposed to be some left wing bomb throwers like Media Matters or the New Black Panthers. These are supposed to be elected officials who represent all of their constituents when on the job. So how do they elevate the discourse? With this.
Well it looks like there is another flag bearing the image of Obama and this time it is on display in a school.
For starters the U.S. flag code states the flag must never bear any mark, insignia, letter, word, figure, design, picture, or drawing of any nature. So what the Obama Campaign has done with these flags is, well, illegal. Continue reading
This is an old story but still important. This is what some folks seem to mean when they say “never let a crisis go to waste”.
Arrests of religious people expressing their beliefs in public… brought to you by the same police force that stormed citizens in their homes and took their firearms by force after Katrina.
I have always been perplexed how American leftists can see this man as a hero. I have even seen people calling George Bush a Warmonger while displaying the image of Che’ Guevara. A man who once said “Crazy with fury I will stain my rifle red while slaughtering any enemy that falls on my hands! My nostrils dilate while savoring the acrid odor of gunpowder and blood. With the deaths of my enemies I prepare my being for the sacred fight and join the triumphant proletariat with a bestial howl!”
I have never been able to find a Liberal/Progressive who will actually try to explain their love for this man. I typically get answers like “you wouldn’t understand”, “he was a great man”, and even “Viva la Revolution” but never an intelligent answer as to why he deserves their idolizing.
“If any person has a good word for the previous government that is good enough for me to have him shot.” Dr Che Guevara Continue reading
