This has been quite the busy week around Casa Crustacean, so y’all are just gonna have to deal with a short-than-usual column.
A) It is amazing how the leftists in America and their supposed “feminist” allies are attacking Herman Cain over false allegations of sexual harassment. These same people repeatedly defended Teddythedrunk (and completely covered up for his older brother), Bill Clinton, Silky Pony Edwards, Anthony Weiner, et al because the liberal positions of the offenders made them more important than their female victims. For liberals, sexual harassment is a resume enhancer!
B) Here is one situation in which I would welcome immediate US military involvement in Libya. Those munitions must be secured immediately and properly destroyed.
C) A protester at the Occupy Oakland protest was hospitalized with a head injury. As soon as it became known that he is a former Marine, lots of Marines rallied online to his support and against the Oakland PD, who they accuse of firing a projectile that hit him. Those Marines were sadly fooled. The protester is NOT one of their brothers. He is the founder of an anti-Marine website and an anti-Semite. He gets no sympathy from me.
D) Last week we brought y’all the news that ACORN was deeply involved in the “occupy” protests. Now the artists formerly known as ACORN have been shredding documents, firing staff, and telling folks to blame ex-employees in order to cover up their involvement. Sorry, but there ain’t enough litter in the box to cover up that cat turd now, and the shredding of documents might just be a bit illegal.
E) Michelle (***sigh***) Malkin brings us some more of the images from “occupy” protests that the Democrats and their buddies in the media don’t want you to see.
F) The union leaders are realizing that their only hope is to ally themselves with the radical protesters of the “occupy” groups, as the rest of America has pretty much had it with their idiocy. Check out this interview with the President of the United Steelworkers International union (why do American unions put the word “international” in their names when they are all about union power in America?) as he calls for “militancy” and other actions that will do absolutely nothing for the thugs except give them an outlet while they are out of work.
G) Speaking of union idiots and being out of work, the union The Crawfish is currently a member of (until my layoff next Friday) has their contract with Lockheed up for renewal this coming spring. They are already talking about the need to strike until they can get a much better deal than the contract they are under now. Since the F-35 program is under severe pressure from the government, this is the time to go big, and the company will have to cave in to the union, or so union logic says. The reality is that Lockheed is laying off lots of people because the government is demanding that the price of the plane be cut down, and since the government has already announced that they will be purchasing fewer jets over the next two years than originally planned there will be even more layoffs coming. Sounds like the perfect time to strike and make big demands, doesn’t it?
H) Nancy Pelosi believes that the federal government should shut down a manufacturing plant if the workers do not want to be unionized. Really? Where does the federal government get ANY say in the contractual dealings between employers and employees?
I) It is rather interesting that this story comes from an Israeli news source instead of an American one. The Obama Administration is pulling all law enforcement training manuals, including those dealing with terrorism, in order to purge them of all non-positive references to Islam, after the Injustice Department received pressure from Hamas operatives in the United States. The operatives mentioned in the story do not include the top Hamas operative in the country because the journalist didn’t want to offend Barack Hussein Obama.
J) I really don’t know how a football games ends up with the score in this story, especially a high school game in which the quarters are only 12 minutes long. Disclosure statement: The Crawfish played against Garland Christian in the early 80’s.
K) Our good friend Gunny G reminds us of the ten principles of conservatism, and what they mean as we gear up for the elections next year.
L) Another prominent, rich, white Democrat who has made a life out of using other people’s money finds himself in a potential heap of trouble. Former Goldman Sachs CEO, Democrat Senator from Noo Joisey, and Governor of Noo Joisey (who violated state seat belt laws every time he rode in a government vehicle and left the state with $8 billion in fresh debt) Jon Corzine runs an investment firm called MF Global. It has just been noticed that MF Global is MISSING hundreds of millions of investor dollars. Of course, the media is just noting that Corzine’s company might have some bookkeeping problems instead of pounding on MF Global like they did with Enron.
M) We know the GOP is on to something serious now, thanks to Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-Corruptionois). She compared the GOP Representatives who voted to subpoena White House documents dealing with Solyndra to “birthers”. Whenever conservatives get too close to the truth, Democrats try to belittle them, since the Dems have no factual ammunition.
N) Now this story is funny on two levels. A woman who was 19-years old at the time is claiming to have had sex with Justin Bieber, who was 16 at the time, backstage after a concert and it resulted in her having a baby. She wants child support. First of all, she is admitting to statutory rape, since he was only 16. Secondly, how could he be the father if his balls STILL haven’t dropped?
