The Crawfish must apologize to his readers for not posting any columns last weekend. My hard drive died and the recovery disk was junk. I had to get new disks from HP after replacing the drive unit. I also had problems restoring my files and even lost a ton of internet bookmarks, which will reduce the variety of sources used for these columns until I remember all of those sites.
A) Ron Paul and the Democrats don’t want y’all to notice how China is building up their military forces and making threats around the South China Sea and Indian Ocean, but at least the US Navy is still paying attention. In case y’all have missed it, which is easy with the lack of media coverage, China is now operating their first aircraft carrier, with plans for many more. They are also flight testing their first stealthy strike fighter. They have something like 40,000,000 more men than women, and the only way to start balancing that out is through a very bloody war. They still wish to conquer Taiwan, and now they wish to dominate the entire region.
B) The Taliban and Afghan leader Karzai have their turbans in a twist, and that means the Obama Administration has to get miffed. It seems some Marines were filmed urinating on some dead Taliban. There is outrage galore. The Noo Yawk Slimes will probably run it on their front page for a month or two, like they did with Abu-Ghraib. The Crawfish counters this wailing and gnashing of teeth with a couple of points. First, why is this considered outrageous behavior, when beheading innocents and holding up the head on video isn’t, nor is shooting dozens of school kids like at Breslan? Second, it was probably the closest thing to a bath that those Taliban had received in the past decade. The only thing that offended me was the fact that the bodies were still recognizable as humanoids. That means that the Marines didn’t use enough firepower or explosives. Go watch HBO’s “The Pacific” and tell me that these Marines were sooooo bad.
C) The Obama-Holder war against religion, which is just a small part of the war against religion (except Islam) being waged by the Democratic Party, the media, Hollyweird, and powerful leftists throughout the USA and the world, was delivered a solid kick to the junk by the Supreme Court. In a UNANIMOUS decision, the Court ruled that the Constitution does not allow the government to have any say in the decision of a religious entity, in this case the Lutheran Church, to hire or fire a minister. A female had been trained and accepted as a Lutheran minister, but evidently did something to convince the Church’s governing body that she was unfit to be a minister for their Church. When they fired her, she claimed discrimination. The Obama Administration, seeing another opportunity to diminish religious liberties in America, immediately joined her case. Chief Justice Roberts and the entire Court stood tall for the First Amendment. Now, will they do the same for the anti-Christian aspects of Obamacare?
D) Here is The Crawfish’s nominee for “Mother of the Year” for 2011. This young lass lost her husband to cancer on Christmas Day. Then she had armed men trying to break into her home on New Year’s Eve. She went to protect her baby, and called 9-1-1. She told the operator that she was armed and asked for a police officer to respond immediately. The operator let her know that it would be okay if she shot to defend herself after the men got into the house. One perp eventually got arrested. The other one assumed ambient room temperature. Whenever a liberal brings up gun control, just remind them that when seconds count, as in this case, the police are always just minutes away.
E) Poll Katz e-mailer Bill sent along word that President Obama is considering a 40% tax on aspirin. Evidently this is because aspirin is white and it works.
F) The judge for the trial of former Democrat Senator and Vice Presidential nominee “Silky Pony” Edwards says that Edwards has a “life-threatening” condition. Did he run out of hairspray?
G) Here we go again with liberals at an unConstitutional government agency running amok. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission is warning employers that any requirement that a job applicant be a high school graduate or equivalent violates the Americans with Disabilities Act. Where does the Constitution give the federal government the authority to interfere with the private business contracts between an employer and an employee, and since when does not wanting an education qualify as a disability?
H) A one-month old in New Mexico was raped and murdered by an illegal alien in the first week of 2012. Since the perp was a non-dryback, the major media and the Obama Administration acted like nothing happened.
I) Speaking of media cover-ups, there was a mass murder in the Fort Worth-Dallas Metroplex on Christmas Day. Members of a family were shot to death while opening their presents. The killer was the estranged Dad, who was there in a Santa suit. The cops said that motive was “unimportant”, which is unusual until you notice that the killer was a muslim who didn’t like the fact that his family was not adhering to Sharia Law. They had become Westernized, so he did his religious duty according to the Quran and the faithful Followers of the Pedophilic False Prophet. Whenever the motive is Islam, the media, the Democratic Party, and some law enforcement agencies consider the motive “unimportant” or “unknown”.
J) While Sultan Bu’raq bin al Obama and his party refuse to acknowledge Islamic terrorism, they are also failing to acknowledge that there are now 35 Islamic terrorist training centers around our nation. Of course, since these people are not white Christian veterans they are to be ignored by Eric Holder and Janet Napolitano.
K) Here’s more on how Obama, the Democratic Party, most of the media, and Ron Paul are ignoring the truth about the Muslim Brotherhood, Islam, and Islamists. Then again, are they ignoring the truth or are they just trying to shield the truth from the American public?
L) Check out this graph from the St. Louis Federal Reserve and note how national debt as a percentage of GDP has shot up since Harry Reid took over the Senate, which coincided with Nancy Pelosi taking over the House, and Barack Obama being a Senator. Then watch it go much higher after Barack Obama became President. Yes, those numbers went up under W, but it took Democrats to make them skyrocket.
M) I brought this story to y’all a few months back, as a co-worker of mine was from that area. Now it has FINALLY gone to SCOTUS. Some of the Justices, especially Justice Alito, seemed to be highly offended by the actions of the EPA and the government. Let’s hope that the rights of property owners are, for a change, upheld.
N) His Majesty took the time to jack with American military personnel and their families over the Christmas holiday. The man has absolutely zero respect for our men and women in uniform. He’s in it for the power and whatever perks he can squeeze out of the taxpayers. I’d say that he is a jackass, but that would be an insult to Democrats and other jackasses.
O) It must be nice to live in a world completely void of reality, like Debbie Wasserman Shultz does. Here’s the latest quote from the one brain cell wonder: “You know, I’m a hundred percent confident that the people of Iowa and the American people will win the day on November 6th of this year when President Obama is re-elected because of his policies, because of the fact that he has brought this country out of the worst economic disaster that we faced since the Great Depression and the people of America know.”
P) Hmmmm. It looks like someone needs to be arrested next January! We know it won’t happen under the current Administration.
Q) The Administration and Incompetano’s Department of Homeland Insecurity screwed up big time. They had officers with semi-automatic weapons set up a checkpoint outside of a Florida Social Security office, and they were checking IDs. I thought checking IDs was only something those RAAAAAAACIST Republicans wanted to do!
R) Meanwhile, there is evidence starting to pile up showing that many non-living people and people who live in other states are indeed voting in elections. James O’Keefe and his organization even made videos during the New Hampshire primaries showing election officials handing out ballots in the names of dead people. Just imagine what it is like in Chicago! Now remember that the two main lines of reason that the Democrats are using in court action against voter ID laws are that the law disenfranchises the poor, especially blacks, and that voter fraud never happens in the US. This kinda shoots that last one down.
S) Barack Obama’s drunk driving illegal alien uncle STILL has not gone to trial. On top of that, his lawyer is demanding to get a copy of the driving record of the cop who arrested Uncle Onyango. What does the COP’S driving record have to do with the illegal alien driving drunk? Why would any judge allow this tripe? The judge must be a good Democrat hoping for an appointment to the federal bench.
T) Those folks at Solyndra, you know…the ones who got a $500 million gift from Obama and an illegal change in bankruptcy laws so that they got to keep some of the money in order to make donations to Obama and his friends…well, their bankruptcy attorneys were in court asking the judge to let the company hand out bonuses, supposedly to keep their remaining workers at the company. One worker who made over $206,000.00 last year would get another $50,000.00 if the plan is approved. I’m sorry, but if that person made over $200K last year, they don’t need any more of the taxpayers’ money. If they want to pay bonuses, they should pay them from the pockets of the people who have profited from Obama’s gift and from the campaigns that received donations from that company.
“[A] wise and frugal government … shall restrain men from injuring one another, shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned. This is the sum of good government.” –Thomas Jefferson, First Inaugural Address, 1801
