I didn’t have a whole lot of online research time in the 2nd half of the week, so this one’s a bit shorter than usual.
A) The Obama Administration may have said “NO” to new F-16 sales to Taiwan (and to The Crawfish’s job), but there are efforts underway in the House and the Senate to push the sales through anyway. Senator John Cornyn has put up legislation attached to a trade bill, and co-sponsored by Republicans, Democrats, and an Independent, to force the sale, while Representative Kay Granger has done the same in the House. The Senate version could come up for debate as early as Tuesday (9/27). With strong bi-partisan support in both chambers, they just might be able to overturn His Majesty’s kissing of Chinese butt.
B) I know we all tend to refer to The Won and his party as socialists, but the more correct term would be fascists. Then again, they are two sides of the same coin.
C) If any of y’all thought that the jobs bill had anything to do about saving/creating jobs (other than those of Obama and the union bosses), take a look at some of the stuff that is in there. This bill is all about giving power to the federal government and taking it away from the states. It specifically throws out the 11th Amendment. Again, the Democrats will do anything possible to overturn our Constitution.
You simply won’t believe this story until you realize that it happened in Chicago. A union organizer got hired by the Daley Administration to work for the city of Chicago for a single day and then was put on an indefinite leave of absence so he could continue being a union boss. After many years of not working for the city, he is now retired and making $158,000.00 per year as a pension from the city. For ONE DAY of work!
D) Just in case any of you still harbored thoughts of Ron Paul being a viable candidate, the fact that he has stated that he would consider Dennis Kucinich for a Cabinet position is People’s Exhibit 72344 of his lack of fitness for duty.
E) The SEIU’s Stephen Lerner tells a “progressive” summit that the progs need to “create a crisis” for the rich. He advocates all sorts of law-breaking and such, including bringing cities like Houston, Seattle, Boston, and Noo Yawk to a complete standstill. Meanwhile, it is the Constitution-loving Tea Party folks who are on the terrorist watch lists. If any of that law breaking does occur, he should be charged as an accessory or as a conspirator. The evidence is on You Tube.
F) The only problem with this story is that the final act came about a decade late.
G) Rick Perry is trying very hard to lose the GOP nomination. How else can you explain his stupidity in doubling down on his support for TAXPAYER-funded lower tuition rates for illegal aliens? He says you don’t have a heart if you don’t want the illegals to better themselves. WE say you don’t have a brain if you don’t realize that the only taxpayer funds for illegals should be used to prevent their entry, to track them down if they do get in, and to deport their illegal arses once found.
H) This lady got all bent out of shape over a search by a TSA agent within a couple of days of the Afghan Turban Bomber. Kinda reminds me of the old Haarlem Globetrotters cartoon, where one of the guys had anything they ever needed in his ‘fro.
I) This is what you would expect from a company run by left-wing loons. Ben & Jerry’s ice cream now has a flavor named “Schweddy Balls”. It is named after a sexual innuendo from an old Alec Baldwin skit on “Saturday Night Live”.
“We must always remember that America is a great nation today not because of what government did for people but because of what people did for themselves and for one another.” – Richard Nixon
