Michael Cane is awesome!

For background, Britain is on the verge of collapse.

Instead of cutting back on spending, they want to raise taxes up to 50%.

Will there be a Tea Party in Britain like here in the States?

Maybe if there are more people like Sir Michael Cane...
His name, as they say, is Michael Caine. And he's not a happy bunny. The 76-year-old film star has revealed in colourful terms that he has had it, and will leave Britain if taxes get any higher.

"The Government has taken tax up to 50 per cent, and if it goes to 51 I will be back in America," he said at the weekend. "We've got 3.5 million layabouts on benefits, and I'm 76, getting up at 6am to go to work to keep them. Let's get everybody back to work so we can save a couple of billion and cut tax, not keep sticking it up."

Who knows, but doesn't that response sound remarkably similar to what we will being doing in the US soon?
The Obama administration wants a de facto nationalization of GM, probably Chrysler too.
Of course the Treasury math doesn't add up.

The point is, Britain nationalized their car industry and it is gone. Now they don't get any revenue from it. Their industrial base is dying and now they are on the verge of bankruptcy.
Unions help kill theirs and now want to help kill ours.
How long before our car industry is gone?
How long before we are all bankrupt and forced to live off China's handouts?
I'm sure glad I bought a Ford now!

Obama Tortures NYC

What would you call flying a plane flying this dangerously close to the NYC skyline?

I don't quite know how to embed a video so you'll have to watch this at breitbart.tv

What in the hell were they thinking?
President Obama's White House was forced to issue an apology Monday after a photo opportunity gone badly wrong — an Air Force 747 plane did a low flyover over Lower Manhattan, prompting terrified citizens to flee from their offices and high-profile accusations of government insensitivity in the post 9/11 era.
All for a damn photo op? Something is seriously wrong with these people in Government.
If anyone had any thought that the Democrats in power have reverted back to a pre-9/11 mindset, this should be proof positive that they have.

So let's get this straight.
  • Slapping a terrorist is torture.
  • Putting a terrorist in a cell with a caterpillar is torture.
  • Waterboarding the mastermind behind the 9/11 attacks to get information to stop future attacks is torture.
  • Flying airplanes over the New York skyline not all that far from ground zero is "insensitive."
Let's get this straight right here and right now. The CIA interrogation techniques were used against enemy combatants. They weren't innocent victims plucked of the street. These people killed or had the intention to kill American civilians any way they could. These people killed innocent women and children. These people beheaded civilians and soldiers alike. And these asshats in Washington, want up to feel sorry for them, and wand us to feel immoral because we slapped them around to get information? Get fucking Real!!!!

Then those asshats in Washington think it's ok to partially recreate one the worst acts of violence in the last 50 years for a fucking photo?

What side are they one?

A civil rights President?

There is really not much to say here. Obama pretty much says it all. Why did anyone vote for this man?

The Michigan vs Jackson ruling in 1986 established that, if a defendants have a lawyer or have asked for one to be present, police may not interview them until the lawyer is present.

Any such questioning cannot be used in court even if the suspect agrees to waive his right to a lawyer because he would have made that decision without legal counsel, said the Supreme Court.

However, in a current case that seeks to change the law, the US Justice Department argues that the existing rule is unnecessary and outdated.

The sixth amendment of the US constitution protects the right of criminal suspects to be "represented by counsel", but the Obama regime argues that this merely means to "protect the adversary process" in a criminal trial.

Go figure, only a UK paper will cover it.

Why are Democrats so dumb?

So they were tricked by that "idiot" Bush into a war with Iraq.

Now Pelosi is playing dumb on when she was briefed on CIA interrogation techniques.
Representative Nancy Pelosi of California, who in 2002 was the ranking Democrat on the House committee, has said in public statements that she recalls being briefed on the methods, including waterboarding. She insists, however, that the lawmakers were told only that the C.I.A. believed the methods were legal — not that they were going to be used.
Now it's really not hard to believe that Pelosi is an idiot. Still...Democrat's will tell everyone how stupid they were to be tricked into doing what they were "morally" opposed to.
And this woman is 3rd in line to POTUS!!!!

Thor help us!

Political Compass Test

Here take this test.

Have to warn you though, it's heavily liberally biased. It's a perfect example of how Obama can get a 73% approval rating.

All you have to do is frame the question a certain way, oh like..."Do you agree with Dick Cheney's assessment that Obama is going to wreck the country?"
Since you know most people hate Dick Cheney, then most people will automaticall disagree with Cheney and Obama's "Approval Rating" will then go up. That's what CBS/NYTimes poll did last week.

What Pew did was different. They just sampled 100 more Democrats than Republicans, and then who knows how many of the "independents" were in fact independents. Obviously they weren't any Tea Party demonstrators, that is sure.

They go by the philosophy that perception is reality. If you don't agree with Obama, they want you to think your the extreme minority and therefor your opinion should be marginalized. It's a tactic they have and will use time and time again.

I rather like this poll.
Sixty percent (60%) of Americans say the federal government has too much power and too much money, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey.
Or how about this one?
70% of U.S. voters believe that big business and big government generally work together against the interests of investors and consumers, according to Rasmussen Reports surveying. Just 14% disagree with the assessment, and 17% are not sure.
So who do you think Obama is working for?

Oh yeah here is my score for the political compass test.

Economic Left/Right: 5.38
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -0.92

Liberal Hypocrisy

Now I don't watch pageants at all. I didn't even know that Miss America was on this last weekend. I had much better things to do, so I didn't watch it.
I watched this clip. I was totally appalled.
Perez Hilton is a jackass, asshat. I really can't apply describe the level of bigotry and hate coming out of that man.
For one, trying to make a political statement out of a damn beauty pageant is stupid. That is besides the point, but his tirade after the fact. Calling Miss California and "B$%ch" and a "Cu$t" is beyond mean.
Watching Perez and Garaffalo, you can get a real sense of how tolerant Liberals really are.
Democrats have been and still are the party of bigots. They hate anyone that doesn't think exactly like them. They hate you if you have an opinion of your own and they hate you for any reason they can think of.

I'm so glad I dumped the Democratic Party.

Fiscal Responsibility?

I can't believe it but the Associated Press is calling bullshit on Obama's budget cuts.
Cut a latte or two out of your annual budget and you've just done as much belt-tightening as President Barack Obama asked of his Cabinet on Monday.

The thrifty measures Obama ordered for federal agencies are the equivalent of asking a family that spends $60,000 in a year to save $6.

Obama made his push for frugality the subject of his first Cabinet meeting, ensuring it would command the capital's attention. It also set off outbursts of mental math and scribbled calculations as political friend and foe tried to figure out its impact.

The bottom line: Not much.

Is it the end of the honeymoon?

I'd say so, now that Axelrod calls protests "Unhealthy."

Seriously, such hypocrisy is why I left the Democratic Party. Thank the gods I did!

Non-Political Front

I miss Vegas. I can't wait to go back for a week or so in October.

Climate Change Update

Great news today from Rasmussen.
Just one-out-of-three voters (34%) now believe global warming is caused by human activity, the lowest finding yet in Rasmussen Reports national surveying.
That number is down from last year's number of 47%. Now that we are getting real scientists looking at the problem, I think that number will drop another 10 points next year. Especially now that the EPA wants to regulate CO2.
Forty-eight percent (48%) of all likely voters attribute climate change to long-term planetary trends, while seven percent (7%) blame some other reason. Eleven percent (11%) aren’t sure.
Imagine that, the Earth actually goes through natural climate changes? So all the warming since the last ice age wasn't caused by man? Oh no...Gore's head will explode soon.
Sixty-two percent (62%) of all Americans believe global warming is at least a somewhat serious problem, with 33% who say it’s Very Serious. Thirty-five percent (35%) say it’s a not a serious problem.
That number will go down as soon as the schools start teaching little things like Photosynthesis, and how the ecosystem works. Of course that would mean, schools would have to divert resources away from teaching kids that FDR is a God and all must worship him. No matter, I have my faith in science and that cooler climate heads will win out. Much like the Flat Earth is a no brainer now, AGW will be a no brainer in 20 years.

This is on top of the wonderful news that Antarctic Ice is growing.
A paper to be published soon by the British Antarctic Survey in the journal Geophysical Research Letters is expected to confirm that over the past 30 years, the area of sea ice around the continent has expanded.
I don't expect that paper to be circulated much around the US though. The MSM here has been way too over the top in the tank with Gore and the blame humans for everything crowd.

If you actually want to have a debate, read this article by Roy Spencer.
There are two new scientific findings that will have a huge impact on the global warming debate—if they are allowed to see the light of day. The fi rst is compelling new evidence that suggests that global warming has been mostly natural, the result of an internally generated climate fluctuation called the Pacific Decadal Oscillation. The second is the increasing amount of observational evidence that the climate system is largely insensitive to our greenhouse gas emissions.
Imagine a scientist actually doing real science. Life is good again.

Obama's CIA doubletake

There is growing anger from the Left over Obama's refusal to charge CIA agents with war crimes. You know you have made the Left mad, when Olbermann wags his finger at you.
On one of my favorite blogs Liberal Rapture a commenter asked this.
"Why is it ok for them to be arrested and tried and not the CIA agents who participated in this torture? Were the guards and officers in the Concentration Camps only following the orders of their leader, Hitler? Am I the only one who sees this?" - Mary Ellen
This was my response.

The simple reason is that the Nazi were the enemy. The CIA agents are working for the US.

If Hitler would have won, who would he have had tried at Nuremberg? He who wins, gets the spoils. It's not "fair" or "just" but neither is war and neither is terror. Was it fair for AQ to ram planes into the WTC? Was it fair for AQ to behead American, Japanese citizens and broadcast it over the Internet?
Let me be clear here, I'm not complacent in what happened. We (the US) needs to be held accountable for our offenses. Yet I only have sympathy for those that were not guilty, but just happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time.
For those like Khalid Sheik Mohammad that planned the WTC attack and those like him, they deserve what they get.

Think about this, how far would you be willing to go to get information from someone who, let's say has kidnapped your child and that child will die if the police don't get them quickly? Yes it's a rhetorical question, but it needs to be answered. Would you let your child die, because you think shoving water down the perps thought to get him to talk is wrong? Or would you pull out his fingernails to get him to talk. Say what you want on this board, but at least be honest to yourself.
Make no mistake, I would take a frackin meat grinder to any asshole that messed with my family like that, nail guns, hot oil and bacon if their Muslim.
But it got me thinking about what Obama is doing. Seriously why did Obama release the memos then go and say he wasn't going to do anything?

By releasing the memos, I think Obama is at once trying to appease the growing hostility from the Left, that feels like he is dragging his feet. Remember how Obama said he was going to shut Guantanamo down immediately, but it's still not shut down. Obama doesn't know what do to with the prisoners, France will only take 1.
The memos from the Bush administration will and have created a outcry for "justice" from the Left. But really, it's just more Bush bashing. See how quickly Bush and Nazi have come up. The problem with that is obvious. Hitler killed millions of Jews, Bush overthrew Saddam and set up the foundation for a deomocratic government in Iraq.
To the Left though, the ends don't justify the means. If they did, then the shear proof that we haven't been attacked since 9/11, while Spain, UK, and India all have should be enough.

No...Obama's release is a political ploy. But what is he trying to hide?
I think he is trying to hide his domestic spying power grab from the Left. What else could blind the Left more fervently than more Bush bashing. Meanwhile Obama lays waste to all his campaign promises on domestic spying and FISA. Glenn Greenwald has been adamant in his attacks on Obama over this.
I've said before I don't agree with Greenwald on much anymore, but at least he has a core set of values. Something Obama clearly lacks.
Yet in simultaneously releasing the memos and don't doing anything, he opened a can of worms. The Right will attack him no matter what. But now the he has given the Left some new ammunition to use. And we all know the kind of venom the Left can spew. Just look at Garofalo talk about the Tea Party Protests.

The Right has been saying Obama = Carter 2 for a while now.
The Left is now going to start saying Obama = Bush 3.

We are all 'Right Wing Extremists" now

The DHS has a new report out titled:
Rightwing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment.

Michelle Malkin has excellent coverage of it on her site.

The best part is that by the DHS, own definition everyone can be labeled a "Right Wing Extremist."
Rightwing extremism in the United States can be broadly divided into those groups, movements, and adherents that are primarily hate-oriented (based on hatred of particular religious, racial or ethnic groups), and those that are mainly anti-government, rejecting federal authority in favor of state or local authority, or rejecting government authority entirely. It may include groups and individuals that are dedicated to a single issue, such as opposition to abortion or immigration.
The Left definitely falls into the anti-government during the Bush years, the Right is that way now.

It's good to now that if you don't follow exactly the Left's talking points, you are by definition a "Right Wing"er.

Anyone know where I can find another copy of 1984?

It's nice to know that the Government is watching the little guy.

Moar Churchill

We need more men like Winston Churchill in times like these.
North Korea vows to boycott any disarmament talks, basically telling the world to eat shit.
Iran trying US citizens behind closed doors on propped up charges.
Is there a leader we can turn to?
For god sake, we are all screwed if all we have to rely on is President "Blame America for everything" Obama.

There is a striking similarity between the current situation of North Korea and Iran trying to get nuclear weapons and 1930's Germany and Italy. Particularly in the reactions from the international communities.
What did the League of Nations do to stem the rise of Fascist Italy and Nazi Germany?

What has the UN done to stop North Korea and Iran from gaining nuclear weapons?

Obama did give a strongly worded letter to Mr Kim Jong Il.

No what we need are men of courage and men of integrity like Churchill.
Churchill on the Munich Agreement:
"We have suffered a total and unmitigated defeat...you will find that in a period of time which may be measured by years, but may be measured by months, Czechoslovakia will be engulfed in the Nazi régime. We are in the presence of a disaster of the first magnitude...we have sustained a defeat without a war, the consequences of which will travel far with us along our road...we have passed an awful milestone in our history, when the whole equilibrium of Europe has been deranged, and that the terrible words have for the time being been pronounced against the Western democracies: "Thou art weighed in the balance and found wanting". And do not suppose that this is the end. This is only the beginning of the reckoning. This is only the first sip, the first foretaste of a bitter cup which will be proffered to us year by year unless by a supreme recovery of moral heal
th and martial vigour, we arise again and take our stand for freedom as in the olden time.

I'm on Twitter


Paul Krugman is a Dips#$t.

Just to let everyone know, I really don't like Paul Krugman.
His new column doesn't help that any.
Today’s G.O.P. is, after all, very much a minority party. It retains some limited ability to obstruct the Democrats, but has no ability to make or even significantly shape policy.
Ok I can buy that, the Democrats have a majority in the House and almost Filibuster proof majority in the Senate.
Then Krugster goes in to his GOP bashing.
Beyond that, Republicans have become embarrassing to watch. And it doesn’t feel right to make fun of crazy people.
Actually it doesn't feel right to make fun of Democrats, but that's subjective. Let's see, the Dems have the power to do what they want but can't get:
  • Card Check
  • Cap and Trade
  • Health Care
through Congress....yeah must be those Republicans that have "no ability to make or even significantly shape policy."

But of course since the GOP doesn't have the ability to shape policy, that doesn't stop Paul from making fun of them. But then to say that the only policy Debates are coming from the Democrats? What the hell is he smoking?
There is no debate among the Dems, if your not with them, then your a racist....just see the whole Sen Roland Burris debacle.
Actually the only debate at the Obama Administration seems to be how many of Bush's policies can we keep in place without everyone knowing about it.
Oh wait Republican's are "crazy people."
So Obama is dumber than a "crazy" person, for keeping all those "crazy" policies in place....

Yeah some policy debate.

I have a big problem with Krugman's arrogant stance against the Tea Party movement.
These parties — antitaxation demonstrations that are supposed to evoke the memory of the Boston Tea Party and the American Revolution — have been the subject of considerable mockery, and rightly so.
The only mockery comes from the Left. Spending 13 min on MSNBC to "Teabagging Puns." Yeah that's real mature from the Left.
What do you expect from the "War is lost" party, to the now let's escalate the war in Afghanistan, and ask for more money, while hoping no one calls out the rank hypocrisy of the whole situation because they voted against Bush doing the same thing.
So what does that say about Obama, who is keeping all of Bush's "crazy" policies in place?
Yeah no need to answer...

I think Paul is upset because the Left can't organize demonstrations of their own anymore.
He is probably sad because no one actually agrees with his own call for nationalization. And rightly so, that would be socialistic. So Krugman tries to deflect the charge of socialism.
But the charge of socialism is being thrown around only because “liberal” doesn’t seem to carry the punch it used to.
Didn't Obama say something about "spreading the wealth around?" Oh I'm sure little details like that are too petty for Krugman to worry about.

Then Krugman tries to smear the Tea Party movement using flat out lies.
Then there are the claims made at some recent tea-party events that Mr. Obama wasn’t born in America, which follow on earlier claims that he is a secret Muslim.
Yeah claims...no need to quote a source at all...just throw out insinuations and lies to make a point. Oh wait, my bad....yeah there were people saying those things, they work for ACORN.

Don't let the facts get in your diatribe Mr. Krugman. No one is seriously listening to you anyway.

Why do we have to go to Foreign Media to get the story?

From the Australian:

After all, on all the big foreign policy questions, Obama has continued Bush's policies. The predator drones still fly over Pakistan, destroying any al-Qa'ida operative dumb enough to talk on the phone. The terrorists are still in Guantanamo as Obama's administration develops the Bush administration's decision to shut Guantanamo, as a necessity of global PR, while trying to stop the terrorists from going back to killing civilians. Like Bush, Obama is pursuing an attempt to engage the Iranian regime and even using the same official Bush did. He is withdrawing from Iraq very slowly, on a timetable approved by Republican senator John McCain. He acknowledges the success of the US troop surge in Iraq and wants to emulate it in Afghanistan. He stands four square behind Israel's security. And so on.

Yet while much of the world hated Bush with an irrational passion, allegedly for these policies, it loves Obama with at least a seemingly similar passion, notwithstanding these very same policies.
From the UK Telegraph:
President Barack Obama has recently completed the most successful foreign policy tour since Napoleon's retreat from Moscow. You name it, he blew it. What was his big deal economic programme that he was determined to drive through the G20 summit? Another massive stimulus package, globally funded and co-ordinated. Did he achieve it? Not so as you'd notice.

Then came the dramatic bit, the authentic West Wing script, with the President wakened in the middle of the night in Prague to be told that Kim Jong-il had just launched a Taepodong-2 missile. America had Aegis destroyers tracking the missile and could have shot it down. But Uncle Sam had a sterner reprisal in store for l'il ole Kim (as Dame Edna might call him): a multi-megaton strike of Obama hot air.

"Rules must be binding," declared Obama, referring to the fact that Kim had just breached UN Resolutions 1695 and 1718. "Violations must be punished." (Sounds ominous.) "Words must mean something." (Why, Barack? They never did before, for you - as a cursory glance at your many speeches will show.)

President Pantywaist is hopping mad and he has a strategy to cut Kim down to size: he is going to slice $1.4bn off America's missile defence programme, presumably on the calculation that Kim would feel it unsporting to hit a sitting duck, so that will spoil his fun.

That's just for Foreign Policy. when we start talking about something closer to home like the Global Warming Hoax, we get gems like these.

The president's new science adviser said Wednesday that global warming is so dire, the Obama administration is discussing radical technologies to cool Earth's air. John Holdren told the Associated Press in his first interview since being confirmed last month that the idea of geo-engineering the climate is being discussed. One such extreme option includes shooting pollution particles into the upper atmosphere to reflect the sun's rays.

Of course nothing can possible go wrong, right? Oh but wait is the science behind this global warming fiasco conclusive?
Well of course you have to go to the UK Register in order to read about a new NASA study on the melting Arctic ice. The AGW alarmists love to use Arctic Ice as evidence of AGW, so what dos NASA have to say?

New research from NASA suggests that the Arctic warming trend seen in recent decades has indeed resulted from human activities: but not, as is widely assumed at present, those leading to carbon dioxide emissions. Rather, Arctic warming has been caused in large part by laws introduced to improve air quality and fight acid rain.

Just let the Left keep telling themselves, that there is no Media Bias. Just like little kids hide under the blanket to protect themselves from the Boogyman. The left keeps it's blinders on to what Obama is doing. See no Evil, Hear no Evil, Speak no Evil....eventually you can convince yourself of anything.

At least there are a few Left commentators that actually have some values and a spine.

The Obama DOJ is now squarely to the Right of an extremely conservative, pro-executive-power, Bush 43-appointed judge on issues of executive power and due-process-less detentions. Leave aside for the moment the issue of whether you believe that the U.S. Government should have the right to abduct people anywhere in the world, ship them to faraway prisons and hold them there indefinitely without charges or any rights at all. The Bush DOJ -- and now the Obama DOJ -- maintain the President does and should have that right, and that's an issue that has been extensively debated. It was, after all, one of the centerpieces of the Bush regime of radicalism, lawlessness and extremism.

I encourage everyone to read Glenn Greenwald at Salon. I don't agree with him on much anymore, but at least he is willing to challenge Obama on the Administrations hypocracy.

This is scary


Then we can be like Venezuela too!!!

More Sowell

It gets harder and harder for me to make regular posts with school and work. I did work 112 hours this last two weeks. I need to find a format that works for me. Instead of try, rather badly IMO, to write a big commentary, I think I will try a Post a link and write a few sentences about it approach. I will rant and rave on a few things though. I also will try and post some comments that I make to various blogs, I think my 5 min of madness posts are the better ones than my try to think of something for 50 min approach. Anywho on that note...some killer quotes from Professor Sowell, my favorite economist and social commentator.

The famous editorial cartoonist Herblock could write as well as draw. In one of his books, he said something like: "You too can have the soothing feeling of nature's own baby-soft wool being pulled gently over your resting eyes." I think of that every time I see Barack Obama talking.
You ain't kiddin'. The hope and change mantra is slowly going away but there are way too many people still star struck. Maybe now that his budget is passed in the House and Senate, people will realize the kind of deficits Obama will "enjoy" for his term.

Barack Obama seems determined to repeat every disastrous mistake of the 1930s, at home and abroad. He has already repeated Herbert Hoover's policy of raising taxes on high income earners, FDR's policy of trying to micro-manage the economy and Neville Chamberlain's policy of seeking dialogues with hostile nations while downplaying the dangers they represent.
The reason more people don't talk about his....see quote one.
Perhaps the scariest aspect of our times is how many people think in talking points, rather than in terms of real world consequences.
I agree this is the scariest one. People want to think in terms on labels. If your free market and less government intervention, then you must be a "Rethuglican." If you want low taxes on what you earn and want to keep the fruits of your labor, then you must just want to horde and stick it to the poor while trying to keep them down.
It's truly disingenuous argument to say that if your a AGW (man made global warming) skeptic, then you must be bought and paid for by the oil industry or worse they say you must not believe science. Of course the fact that they "have the soothing feeling of nature's own baby-soft wool being pulled gently" pulled over their own eyes by the likes of Al Gore and his fellow Democrats because they see Cap and Trade as a money making venture, never come into question.
What is truly sad is the state of education in this country. Me and my wife have already decided that we are going for private school starting with pre-K. She told me the story of her history teacher telling her that the Holocaust didn't happen, and that she was sent to the dean because she called "BS" on her teacher did it for me. I can see that the current public system is rotten to the core. It only took reading about the Little Rock School District and how it is so ineptly run by the gang of 4, to get me on the path to private school. They are getting way too much money for the shitty job they are doing to our kids. That is a fact.
We have two sides in my view. On one side is the people that really want whats best for the kids. They want more choice in schools. Letting parents decide which schools they want their own kids to go to, that means vouchers for those that can't afford them. That's what DC kids enjoyed until recently. The other side is on the side of teacher and administration unions. They want more money, more money and yes even more money. They say they don't have enough funding and the only way to improve schools, test scores and graduation rates is more and more money. Where has all the previous money gone? No, I'm not talking about TARP. Why are teachers being paid so little and the administration being paid so much for such and inferior product?
This being my blog, I'll tell you what I think. I think it because they want it. They want an inferior product. They are against vouchers, private schools and homeschooling because they want the money those programs get. They pay teachers so much less, so they drive out the good teachers, keep the shitty ones and then use that to say they need more funding. Like the Leviathan, they will never be satiated. They want all the money.

Liberals seem to think that they are doing lagging groups a favor by making excuses for counterproductive and self-destructive behavior. The poor do not need press agents. They need the truth. No one ever said, "Press agents will make you free."
Thank the Gods for people like Sowell.
