11-5-2011 The Weekend Claw

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?

Congratulations to the Texas Rangers for pulling off the biggest choke job in Texas sports history. Forty seasons. Zero championships.

A) Once again, an anti-American atheist group is suing a high school because they dare to pray before football games. The atheists once again say that the school is violating the First Amendment’s “establishment clause”, but they obviously have never read said clause, for it reads: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof”. Since this is a school or school district making the decision to pray and not Congress making a law, the “establishment clause” is not applicable.

B) That story dovetails nicely with this one, as it involves education, religion, and stooooooopid objections. An investigation has begun by the DC Office on Human Rights (why in the *@#@%^ does a city have that kind of entity?) responding to a complaint against a private Roman Catholic university by muslim students who are offended by the Christian symbols in all of the rooms. That’s like going to a strip club and being offended by nudity. We already over-accommodate muslims in America. When they allow a Catholic cathedral in the center of Mecca, we’ll discuss making more allowances for them here.

C) Here’s more of that liberal “new civility” from line-reader Orlando Jones. I’m happy to say that I do not believe I have spent a single dollar on any of his movies, and I don’t think I ever will. If any white male conservative had done this, he would have been arrested and charged with making a death threat.

D) How in the world do you get an eeeeevillll former Enron trader (they were all Republicans, according to the Democrats and the media, but I repeat myself), who is a billionaire (so he must be a Republican since he is not Warren Buffet) from Texas (where there are no such things as white heterosexual males who are not Republicans) and heads up a group trying to convert all public employee pensions into 401(k) style investments (which hacks off all of the public sector unions) to head up and host a fundraiser for Democrats with the star of the show being none other than micHELLe Obama? This is putting a lot of Houston area Democrats in a big quandary.

E) HYPOCRISY ALERT! (as if the previous stories didn’t give you enough) California is slashing Medicare and Medicaid funding, meaning the poor will have less healthcare available to them. The Obama Administration is giving their blessing to these cutbacks. So here we have the most liberal state legislature in the nation, with perhaps the most liberal Governor in the nation, cutting spending for the poor with the permission of the most liberal President in history, and the media is mum. What are the reactions from the Democrats and the media (but I repeat myself) when Republicans even mention cuts to social programs?

F) While he’s out on the “I’m really doing government business, not campaigning on the taxpayer dime” campaign trail, Barack Obama is claiming that over 60% of his 2008 Hopey-Changey campaign promises have been fulfilled. As is the norm when dealing with statements by Barack Obama, he is lying. Then again, math is not his strong suit so he could have just been proving his ignorance of reality…again.

G) Speaking of facts and Obama’s lies, the richest Americans already pay more than their fair share. In fact, the United States has the most “progressive” taxes of all the major industrialized nations.

H) Barack Obama is giving a huge nod to the “occupiers” by putting forth Son of Son of Son of So-Called Stimulus. This time, he is going to be federalizing student loans and only making the folks who took out the loans only pay back the taxpayers a very small fraction of what they borrowed. The idea is to cap student loan repayment rates at 10 percent of a debtor’s income that goes above the poverty line, and then limiting the life of a loan to 20 years. If The Chosen One wants to do something about college affordability, he should attack the colleges and universities. Because they are so heavily subsidized and give full pay and tenure to professors who teach two classes per week, the cost of college education has risen 439% since 1982.

I) Here is a great story that exposes a big reason why our public education system is so poor. In a word, it is liberalism. Hat tip to my co-worker, Ed.

J) Hot Air has a daily feature called the Obamateurism of the Day. The one from Wednesday showed the insatiable ego and self-recognized superiority of the only President in history who is worse than Jimmy Carter.

K) Severe criminal conduct and the oppression of those who stand for the rule of law has been the hallmark of the Obama Administration, and many members of this cabal have been engaging in such behavior for years. This Thursday’s column by Michelle (***sigh***) Malkin spotlights another member of the LEAST transparent Administration in history and her less-than-legal actions in support of the great liberal gods of abortion. When will the Republican Party grow a set large enough to prosecute criminal actions by Democrat leaders?

L) The “supercommittee” was charged with reducing the deficit by $1.2 trillion over a decade. So why are the Democrats in that group trying to spend MORE in yet another so-called stimulus plan? Could it be that they wanted this group to fail so that draconian cuts can be made in national defense and they can blame Republicans for it?

M) Paul Ryan  is going to be one of the greatest conservative politicians in modern history. Here he is once again absolutely schooling Barack Obama on divisive rhetoric and economic reality.

N) Get this! The White House is ordering a review of the loans to Solyndra and other “green” energy companies. Watch for this “review” to completely whitewash any mention of Obama donors and bundlers or any other political connections involved with the loans. Everything will get blamed on some junior junior staffer or the eeeevilll Republicans.

O) So who is out there helping to organize the “occupiers”, raise money (fraudulently it seems) for them, and further their efforts? Could it be Barack Obama’s old “community agitat…er, organizing” group ACORN? You bet it could. There are also other groups behind this junk, and their trail leads directly to people such as Mayor Bloomingidiotberg and the Community Organizer in Chief.

P) Kasim Reed, the Mayor of Atlanta, shut down the “occupiers” and retook Woodruff Park for the people of Atlanta. As Neal Boortz points out, the “occupiers” screech of “This is what democracy looks like” as they were being evicted from the park is actually making the point of the real people of America. In a true democracy, majority (or mobs) rule. In a nation/state/county/municipality with the rule of law, you get permits for large gatherings on public grounds. When the time limit on said permit has expired, you must get the *(#$%@ out!

Q) I must give a language warning for this story and the embedded video of the “occupier” known as “Conan the Occupier”. This spoiled rich kid is a professional student who is transitioning to teaching assistant at Columbia University. Evidently he is quite allergic to the real world, so he will spend his life in academia if possible.

R) “Occupiers” at the Phoenix protests are handing out fliers describing when it is okay to shoot a police officer. Did the mainstream media report any of this? Nope, but they sure opined that the Tea Party protests were full of violent anti-government rhetoric that could have lead to escalations, even though they could never show any such rhetoric on their mass volumes of video and audio of those protests.

S) Then there’s the Portland “occupiers”, who vandalized, urinated on, and danced on a war memorial. Yep, just like the Tea Party, right?

T) Congresscritters from both sides of the aisle are now seriously questioning Barry’s Great Ugandan Adventure, with some even pointing out how this resembles some of our early involvement in Vietnam.

U) It is always a good day when union leaders get arrested, as happened in Noo Yawk this week. Now of course we know that the charges must be local or state in nature, since The Affirmative Action Attorney General’s Injustice Department would never prosecute union thugs in the Era of The Won.

V) If this were to happen in a Republican administration, the media would be up in arms, but since it is the Obama Administration that is requesting the censorship of anti-government posts on You Tube, the media is strangely silent.

W) If any of you are still seriously considering Mitt Romney as a GOP nominee, you need to read this. Then again, I doubt if any of my regular readers are dim enough to support another Taxachusetts liberal flip-flopper.

X) I’ve posted it before, but this cartoon needs to be seen on a regular basis.

The Crawfish has a whopping three weeks left of being employed (oh how I love the life of a UNION worker), so if it looks like I ain’t taking the time to answer all comments, it might be because I’m busy looking for work.

A) “If you want to understand how totally broken Washington is, look at this entire model of a super committee, which has now got a magic number to achieve and if it doesn’t achieve the magic number then we’ll all have to shoot ourselves in the head. So when they come back with a dumb idea to merely cut off our right leg, we will all be grateful that they are only semi-stupid instead of being totally stupid.” That quote comes from none other than Newt Gingrich at Tuesday’s GOP debate. Ninety five percent of the time he is the smartest man in the room. It’s those other five percent that make him a non-starter as a GOP nominee.

B) “I guarantee it’s going to be a close election because the economy is not where it wants to be and even though I believe all the choices we’ve made have been the right ones.” That comes from The Chosen One. Yes, he still believes that every single disastrous decision he has made regarding the economy of our nation has been the right one. That can only mean one thing. His goal all along has been to “fundamentally change” our nation by destroying capitalism and replacing it with fascist-socialism.

C) While real Americans who are in economic trouble have things like Hamburger Helper for dinner, the socialist-anarchists at Zuccotti Park in Noo Yawk are getting gourmet meals delivered to them every night. This is the ultimate spoiled brat temper tantrum, not a coherent protest!

D) Just take a look at who supports these “occupiers” and realize what the goals really are. The “occupiers” don’t want to revive a middle class or anything of the sort. They want to destroy jobs, destroy capitalism, and get everything they want for free. The folks who support them want the death of America.

E) A black multimillionaire supporter of the “occupiers” admits on television that he refuses to pay taxes, but the media is completely silent about it. If this was a white conservative, he’d already be in federal custody.

F) Someone finally came up with some good signs for the “occupiers”.

G) Gaddafi Duck got the end he deserved, and Barack Obama is taking some of the credit (don’t all African dictators eventually turn on each other?). Of course, this and the other wars he’s started or joined don’t exactly fit the image of a Nobel Peace Prize awardee.

H) Bryant Gumbel of HBO’s “Real Sports” show said that National Basketball Association Commissioner David Stern is acting like a “plantation owner” with regards to league labor talks. In other words, he believes the Commish acts like the players are slaves. What kind of slaves average $4.8 MILLION per year in salary? The NBA players got 57% of all basketball revenue on their latest union contract, and are being asked to scale that back a few percentage points. Is that really being treated like slaves? Gumbel is using this analogy because the majority of NBA players are black, he’s black, and most of the owners are white.

I) So just how efficient are those electric cars being developed with OUR tax dollars? Just what you’d expect. Take what the government and those getting money from the government say, and know they’re lying through their teeth. This company got half a billion dollars from us, and they make the cars in FINLAND. Why are WE giving them a penny? Maybe because the company’s investors are Democratic power names and Democrat campaign bundlers? This pattern of crony capitalism is really disturbing.

J) Janet Incompetano has admitted in Senate testimony that her department is authorizing illegal aliens to work in our country, even if they have no right to be here in the first place. I have nothing to say here that would adequately describe my disgust with this Administration.

K) Another federal judge has joined in the fight to keep America from developing our own energy resources. Since it is the avowed position of the Obama Administration to raise our energy costs, it comes as no surprise to see that Judge William Martinez was elevated to his current position by none other than Barack Hussein Obama. The sooner we can get rid of Obama and most of the Democrats in the House and Senate, the sooner we can start getting rid of left-wing ideologue judges who pay no attention to the Constitution.

L) Justice Antonin Scalia made some interesting remarks in Chicago. The first half of this short article is not what I’m talkin’ ‘bout.

M) If Herman Cain is making the big labor union thugs nervous enough to attack him, he must be proposing something very good for America. In this case, part of his plans involves making areas “right to work”, which should be the case for every square inch of our nation. Another part would be to eliminate the unConstitutional minimum wage. Since nobody has ever been able to point out where the federal government gets any authority to have a say in the private business contracts between employer and employee, the Tenth Amendment applies, meaning there cannot be any federal minimum wage.

N) Someone in South Carolina made a sign that none of my readers will be able to argue with.

O) The ACLU is up in arms again. They are accusing the FBI of racially profiling muslims and other minorities. If the FBI is racially profiling, that means that they are DOING THEIR JOB PROPERLY! If the ACLU doesn’t like the FACT that muslims have a much higher probability of being terrorists, they should tell the muslims to stop being terrorists. If they don’t like the FACT that blacks have a much higher crime rate than any other race in America, they should tell the blacks to start acting civilized or go back to Africa.

P) Top Injustice Department officials have been meeting recently with Islamic terrorist advocates, who want the anti-terrorism programs cut back, additional curbs on investigation of muslims, and a legal declaration that criticism of Islam by any American citizen is criminal racial discrimination. Since they are lobbying the “Civil Rights Division”, the same folks who refuse to prosecute Black Panthers, they are barking up the right tree. Holder and his boss will support these efforts.

Q) Meanwhile, Democrats are circling the wagons to protest Rep. Issa’s investigations into Fast and Furious, Gunrunner, Castaway, etc. They are feigning outrage that he keeps investigating things that Eric Holder has denied, despite the evidence. Heck, even the HuffPo knows there’s something dreadfully wrong going on in this Administration with regards to these cases.

This quote just came in from Uncle Sam: “Where am I going…and why am I in this handbasket?”

A) Hispanic groups are very upset with the National Football League. You see, the NFL has awarded Arizona the 2015 Super Bowl, and that doesn’t sit well with those who support illegal immigration. The head of the biggest Hispanic racist group, LULAC, said: “In light of Arizona’s hate-based legislation, the action taken by the NFL serves as an endorsement of the state’s abhorrent actions against the Latino and migrant communities.” What part of Arizona’s law is “hate-based”? It only upholds our national laws regarding illegal immigration. Hispanics who are here LEGALLY are not affected by that law. Arizona has nothing against LEGAL immigrants. So being a sovereign nation with enforcement of its own borders is the sign of a “hate-based” society? On the other hand, these folks definitely love California. That state just passed a law stating that the state, counties, or cities cannot mandate that all businesses verify that their new hires are legal to work in America.

B) The “occupiers” refuse to believe that their completely incoherent movement is being used by all sorts of left-wing anti-Americans, but take a look at how the teachers unions are orchestrating some of the events of the protests in Chicago. Yes, they are coordinating with other union people (cops) on how many and which people in particular are going to be arrested.

C) The “occupiers” in Noo Yawk have an interesting problem. It seems that a bunch of their members are thieves and are stealing everything they can from their fellow protesters. The “occupiers” shouldn’t complain about it, since they are all for “redistribution of wealth” and other socialist rot. One of them had a $5,500 computer stolen. If you can afford a $5,500 computer, that means you have a pretty good job or really nice parents! My computer only cost me about $1,500 or so.

D) As for the usual cries of “RAAAAAAACISM!”…get used to ‘em again. The left will claim that ever single utterance by a Republican has racism in it. Here’s a good example from this week. According to NBC News, pointing out that half of the workers in America pay no federal income tax is RAAAACIST! Seriously?

E) Jimmy Hoffa is saying that the Teamsters will “hold accountable” Congresscritters who voted in favor of the free-trade agreements that were passed in bi-partisan fashion and gladly signed by President Obama. The Teamsters leadership already opposes the good of their workers by opposing every Republican anyway, so this threat is against the Democrats who voted for the agreements. What’s Hoffa gonna do, tell his people to vote for the Republicans in those Congressional races? Yeah, right.

F) Chewing tobacco is a legal product. Its use may be disgusting to 90% of us, but it is legal. I never have figured out why Major League ballplayers need to have a plug or dip in their mouths to play the game, but a large number still do. Well, they do as long as a few Democrats don’t get their way. Senators DICK “Turban” Durbin, Frank “The Louse” Lautenberg, Tom Harkin, and Richard Blumenthal, all Democrats, want the next union contract with Major League Baseball to include a ban on smokeless tobacco on the ball field. We’re drowning in a sea of debt and overspending, and this is the subject that these four have as their priority?

G) President Obama was left in a completely mute condition on Tuesday. He had no idea how to form a coherent sentence since TOTUS was stolen. Unfortunately for the nation, TOTUS was later recovered, so now we get to hear more about Republicans being eeevillll because they oppose socialism.

H) The left wonders why we don’t trust them when it comes to elections. Maybe it is because they have such a long history of lies and election fraud.

I) Here is yet ANOTHER breaking scandal involving a “green” power company, cronyism, big campaign donations, and hundreds of millions of YOUR TAX DOLLARS. I could do my own commentary, but our great friend Gunny G is on this one like a rat on Cheetos.

J) I’ll say it again. Ron Paul is outstanding on domestic policy, but is either the most naïve politician in the GOP or a sheer moron when it comes to foreign affairs. Now to be fair to Rep. Paul, I did hear part of an interview with him on Tuesday in which he explained many of his previous statements regarding foreign policy, and the explanations were actually reasonable for the most part, but his calls for deep reductions in the defense budget are ludicrous.

K) Why can’t I find a job doing this kind of research? I guarantee that I’d be quite diligent in my duties.

L) Why in the world did Israel accept a deal to get back one kidnapped soldier in exchange for 1027 Palestinian militants, including a number of murderers? The will just embolden Hamas to kidnap more Israelis.

M) Don’t you feel safe knowing that ICE is doing their job so well? I mean it’s not like they have released twenty eight illegal Iranians into the country and lost all track of them. Oh wait…yes they have.

N) With every interview or speech he gives, Allen West becomes more and more the frontrunner for the 2016 Presidential election. This interview sees him 100% correct on a wide variety of subjects, and he brings a sledgehammer down on Obama and the rest of the left wing extremists.

Back when we were stationed outside of Texas and had our home rented out, our property manager had to install keyless deadbolts in our front door, back door, and the door from the laundry room to the garage. The laundry room to garage door even had to have a peephole installed. She said it was per code for rental properties. On Thursday, I had a code inspector at the house to do a preliminary check for the replacement of our back door. He reminded me that for the post-installation check, there had to be doorknobs and locks on the door. I asked him about the keyless deadbolt and he informed me that it was not a city code mandate, but a FEDERAL HUD code mandate for rental properties. Where does the federal government get the power to say what kinds of locks I have on my property if I am renting it out, and why is it their business?

A) Speaking of federal interference with private property rights, check out how completely out of control the EPA got with this couple who were simply trying to build a nice home in Idaho. I hope the Supremes give that couple a HUGE settlement straight out of the EPA’s budget. If that makes them unable to do any work for the rest of the fiscal year, GOOD!

B) Barack Obama is now sending US combat troops to central Africa to help hunt down a warlord. He claims that this action “furthers U.S. national security interests and foreign policy”, but I know of absolutely zero American national security interests, strategic interests, or economic interests in that area. If he wants to help out central Africa, he can send about 10,000 African gang-bangers and 50,000 African welfare leeches from our inner cities. I’m sure their work ethic will be right at home.

C) A Clinton-appointed federal judge is now assisting the Injustice Department in making sure that Elena Kagan doesn’t feel the need to recuse herself from the Obamacare cases when they hit SCOTUS. The judge and DOJ are refusing to release e-mail traffic in which Kagan’s involvement with early defenses of Obamacare are subject matter.

D) Fellow blogger Garnet92 (who has a new blog, but my link is messed up) sent this one along. I presume the owner of this establishment is a bitter old women’s libber who is mad that she can’t spell her name in the snow.

E) know it is pretty bad when even MSNBC is reporting on union bosses getting insane pension payments. Nothing will come of it though, since it is the Chicago Way.

F) Obama’s 2nd favorite billionaire (after George Soros, of course), Warren Buffet, collected over $62.8 million in personal income last year while saying that he needs to pay more taxes. Meanwhile, his company owes over a BILLION dollars in back taxes. So the question remains, why isn’t he in prison for tax evasion?

G) There’s more tax fraud in the case of Solyndra’s main investor, who was a big “bundler” for Obama in 2008. How much do y’all wanna bet that he is mentioned in some of the Solyndra communications that the White House is refusing to let Congress take a look at? Whenever there is a scandal involving Democrats, follow the money.

H) Geez. Now the restaurant workers in Than Franthithco want to make 25% tips mandatory. I’m sorry, but a tip is based on the quality of service, and in the United States a 15% tip represents very good service. These people want to get tipped an amount that represents above-and-beyond great service no matter the actual quality of service. Instead of making something mandatory, try WORKING for it! Oh, I’m sorry…I forgot that Than Franthithco is full of liberals, so they don’t know what WORK is. That’s just another reason for me to never visit that city.

I) The Obamacare version of Social Insecurity is such a Ponzi scheme that even HHS Secretary Sebelius is admitting that it can never be fiscally solvent. CLASS was one of the major parts of the bill and was the pet project of Teddythedrunk (D-Formerly of Chappaquiddick, but now of the Lower Levels of Hell).

J) The leaders of the “occupiers” are starting to let their plans be known. They are now saying that they are going to start a bloody revolution. This is exactly what Barack Obama and the Democrats want, so they can institute martial law, cancel the 2012 elections, and throw out the Constitution. They are just waiting for their Reichstag Fire moment. When the Democratic Party, the American Communist Party, and the American Nazi Party all support the “occupiers”, it is quite clear that the goal is to overthrow our Constitution.

K) The “occupiers” are getting evicted from the park in Noo Yawk, since it is private property. Their response is to call for supporters to descend upon the park to defend them. As for the sanitation problems that they have created, they say the city should provide portapots and dumpsters. Sorry, but if you are having an event it is YOUR responsibility to provide those items, not the city’s. UPDATE: Bloomberg caved in to pressure from other Democrats who don’t want the “occupiers” disturbed in any manner. As per usual when appeasement is tried, it just emboldened the “occupiers”, who then marched on Wall Street and other areas to provoke and confront the police with violence.

L) The Boston “occupiers” went so far as to harass a female member of the US Coast Guard, who was in uniform at the time. She had water bottles thrown at her, was verbally assaulted, and was spit upon twice. These truly are the children of the scumbag hippies of the 60s and 70s (you know…the ones who are now the mainstream of the Democratic Party).

M) How desperate is the Administration getting about Obama’s “Save My Job Bill”? Gaffes Biden is now roaming the country freely and warning that failure to pass Obama’s bill will result in more rapes and murders. I thought that more rapes and murders were part of the marching orders they gave to the “occupiers”.

N) See what happens when Democrats start shelling out money to union schmucks as part of a “stimulus”? You get a new terminal at an airport, but the jetways can’t connect to any aircraft.

O) Oh. Good. Lord. The Obama Administration tried to get Japan to accept a FORMAL APOLOGY for nuking Hiroshima and Nagasaki to end the “overseas contingency operation” that we once knew as World War II. Let’s examine this for a moment. The two bombings and their after effects killed a total of less than 400,000 people. While the numbers are huge, they pale in comparison to the number of people who would have died if the Allies had been forced to invade Japan to end the war. Such an operation would have taken well over a year to conclude, and conservative estimates were that over 3 million Japanese would die, and American casualties would have been over a million between killed and wounded. Truman made the right call. Meanwhile, the Obama Apology Tour did continue with the Administration officially offering condolences to the family of al-Qaida propagandist and recruiter Samir Khan, who was the right-hand man of Anwar al-Awlaki and was killed with him. Yes, you read correctly. Our government is apologizing for killing terrorists before they can recruit more suicide bombers.

P) I keep harping on the Chinese military buildup and what it means for the future of the western Pacific, but one cause for concern is hardly ever noticed by the American left. By 2020, China will have over 20 MILLION more men than women thanks to their “one-child policy”. How do you think they will deal with that problem? If you answered “war”, you are indeed awake.

Q) We’ve all come to expect it, but I’ll go ahead and give y’all a link to this info anyway. The Obamedia went absolutely bat guano in reporting the Enron collapse, since that company had ties to GOP donors. Notice how the Obamedia simply refuses to acknowledge the Solyndra scandal. Also note how the “occupiers” are getting tons of positive coverage, while the Tea Party coverage was scant and heavily slanted to the negative.

R) Tony Bennett spent waaaaaay too much time leaving his heart in Than Franthithco. He left (or smoked away) most of his brain cells there as well. How else can you explain someone calling Barack Obama the “greatest accomplishment” in American history? My children cleaning their rooms is a greater accomplishment than the parasites electing Mr. Hopey-Changey.

S) This little girl had a greater accomplishment than the election of Barack Obama, and a much greater reward. I can never get tired of these stories.

T) So what are Barack Obama’s accomplishments in his first 1,000 days in office? A couple of them surprised me.

U) Wednesday afternoon, I heard Newt Gingrich go off on the Sean Hannity radio show about a bunch of people who should be in prison, but instead have reaped millions and become the power elite. This article shows some of his debate comments regarding Ben Bernanke, Bawney Fwank, and Chris “Countrywide” Dodd. In the radio interview he also mentioned Democrat power players Franklin Raines and Jamie Gorelick, both of whom made tens of millions of dollars while running Fannie and Freddie and submitting fraudulent numbers that helped lead to the housing/credit collapse. If you aren’t familiar with those names and their felonious behavior, look ‘em up and ask yourself how they are not in prison.

V) The Iranian assassination plot that the feds supposedly broke up is chock full of holes. Many people believe it to be a false-flag operation made up by the Administration for their own purposes and to get Fast & Furious off of the front page for a while. Even CNN is running an article stating five reasons to disbelieve it. I can give a sixth reason: This Administration’s track record on truthfulness makes the Clinton Administration’s look positively honest. If you want number seven, it would be the mantra of this bunch: Never let a crisis go to waste!

W) I love seeing Red Nanny P-Lousy becoming completely unhinged from reality. She stated that since Republicans don’t want abortions paid for by the taxpayers, they “want women to die on the floor!” If a woman wants to murder her baby, the law allows it, but she must do so with HER OWN money, or money from the sperm donor.

X) The Racist in Chief visited a racist forum and played the race card. Imagine that. The GOP only wants whites to succeed was his message. What a joke he is.

No, I did not watch the Washington Post GOP debate last night. I had better things to do…like work.

A) What is it about the power-mad control freaks of the left, especially in Europe? New EU safety rules now prohibit children from blowing on noisemakers and blowing up balloons. Since when are simple children’s toys such a severe threat to the entirety of a continent? This is the same cradle-to-grave nanny state mentality that the left wants to impose on us in the United States.

B) If this photo does not completely hack you off, you must be a Democrat. Then there is this one, which also shows the mindset of these “people” in the “occupy” protests. They are also calling for people to “kill the cops” among other things. Yes, these are the people that Nancy Pelosi praises, but about the Tea Party she said: “I have concerns about some of the language that is being used because I saw this myself in the late 70s in San Francisco, this kind of rhetoric. … It created a climate in which violence took place. … I wish we would all curb our enthusiasm in some of the statements and understand that some of the ears that it is falling on are not a balanced as the person making the statements may assume.”

C) The “occupy” movement tried to have a big rally in Fort Worth, but the crowd was quite small and completely unorganized. Check out the photo gallery from our local newspaper. Do any of these people really have a clue?

D) Aaron Goldstein delivers some advice from his grandfather to the “occupiers” out there. The message is completely timeless, but is probably not comprehendible to all those with graduate degrees in Women’s Studies or Parks & Recreation. David P. McGinley adds that there is a nation in which most of the demands of the “occupiers” have already been met, so why don’t they move there?

E) As if we needed any more reminders that Mitt Romney is an unacceptable liberal, he received the endorsement of Chris Christie on Tuesday. RINOs of a feather…

F) Here’s something about the Congressional Budget Office’s scoring of legislation that I didn’t know. When it comes to examining tax changes, the CBO must use static scoring, which does not take into effect what the reactions are to any tax increases or decreases. In other words, their scores are only correct if business practices, investment strategies, and personal spending remain the same after a tax change. In other words, this model significantly favors tax increases and says tax reductions will always lower revenue, when history has proven the opposite.

G) According to the official definition of a recession, the current one ended in June 2009. So how come household income has fallen more in the two years since the recession ended than it did during the recession? Sounds like the definition of a recession is a bit imprecise.

H) I keep telling y’all that these consequences were all part of the Democrats’ plan when they conned Boehner in that “debt deal” earlier this year. They have been looking for the opportunity to eviscerate our Armed Forces since they took over the House and Senate in 2006. Now they have the chance to do it without political fallout, since they will be able to blame the eeeevilll GOP half of the “super committee” for not agreeing to everything THEY wanted. (Democrat definition of bipartisanship: when the GOP caves in to every one of our demands and we give them absolutely nothing)

I) The Affirmative Action Attorney General and some of his minions at the Department of Injustice (or is it Department of Social Justice?) announced that they have foiled a major terrorist plot involving the assassination of the Saudi Ambassador to the United States and the bombing of the Israeli and Saudi Arabian embassies in DC. Is this for real, or is it just an act to make Holder’s bunch look competent and honest in the midst of the Fast and Furious/Gunrunner/Gunwalker/Castaway scandals?

J) Speaking of Saudi Arabia, they have once again shown that Islam practices tolerance about as well as the Democratic Party.

K) All I can say about this story is that the constant rain/light rain/drizzle associated with Seattle tends to rust the brains of that noted left-wing city’s residents.

L) Then again, there’s Canada, where brains get frostbite instead of rusting. Check out this reporterette in Calgary, who says gold is backed by nothing, while the dollar is backed by the US government.

10-5-2011 The Weekly Claw

So far, this has been a good week to observe and laugh!

A) By the time this edition of The Claw is posted, Amanda Knox will have already spent a night in her own bed in Seattle. Her lawyers will have also fielded at least 40 calls about book deals, 15 about movie deals, and 100 about porn deals.

B) All I can really say about this story is…See! It works! Get rid of the incentives and they will leave! Alabama found a way to cut the cost of public education without having any impact on the kids. It gets even better. The folks who were protesting the new law were all concerned about racial profiling against Mexicans, but the first illegal alien arrested under the new law is from Yemen, not Mexico, so he’s not only an illegal but also a possible terrorism suspect!

C) What happens when the drug addled flower children of the 60s raise children in their liberal mindset? You get the Wall Street protesters of today. Let this be a lesson to all those women who think it will be okay for them to smoke pot during pregnancies. Take a gander at their list of demands and see if any of them would work. Chances are you are going to see them as nothing more than typical leftist utopian dogma that has exactly zero chance of working in a world with any reality…but they are good for comic relief! While the protests are spreading to more liberal locals, one thing remains constant, and completely unmentioned by the media. This group of left wingnuts is almost exclusively WHITE. The media blasted the Tea Party constantly with the charges of non-diversity and extreme racism, but what about the lack of diversity with these groups?

D) In a number of speeches over the past 2 years, Barack Obama has mention trade agreements with South Korea, Panama, and Colombia, which he said he wanted passed quickly as they would help our economy and job creation. These agreements were negotiated by the W Administration, but held back from Congress while the union-owned Democrats held the House. You see, Big Labor disapproves. On Monday, The Won finally sent the agreements to Congress.

E) Big Labor isn’t gonna like this bit of news, either. Meeeechigan is the cradle of Big Labor, but the state’s legislature and Governor are now considering giving the workers of that state the freedom to choose whether or not they want to join a union, instead of workers being forced to join a union to keep their jobs. Liberals will have a cow, but then again the only right to choose that they support is regarding abortion. The Crawfish wants this to become federal law as well, since I am forced to be a union member in a right-to-work state because my employer’s building is on federal property.

F) “You don’t have some inherent right just to get a certain amount of profit” sayeth the Community Organizer in Chief. Oh really? Will you puh-leeeeeze show me where the Constitution allows the government to limit the profits of any company. I realize that banks are one of the declared enemy businesses according to our liberal fascist Administration, but how a business operates is not within the purview of our federal government.

G) The whole Bank of America debit card monthly fee issue came up because of the new Dodd-Frank financial regulation law, and an amendment put into that law by Senator Dick “Turban” Durbin. Durbin portrayed himself as a populist taking on the evil banking empire and their highly-paid lobbying machine, when in reality he was doing the bidding of the highly-paid lobbying machine of the big retailers like Wal-mart. That monthly fee is rightfully called the “Durbin Fee.” So how much did his campaign war chest get filled in order to make debit card users “pay their fair share”? A hint of that is found in the story. Just look for a reference to the Podesta Group.

H) Hall of Fame quarterback Fran Tarkenton has a great column regarding public education. He puts the teachers unions issue in simple terms that all sports fans can understand. What would happen if the NFL was run by the same rules as teachers unions?

I) I’m sure that this will not come as a surprise to anyone who reads my columns, but Eric Holder has been proven yet again to have committed perjury in his Congressional testimony involving Gunrunner/Fast and Furious. Holder testified in May of this year that he had only recently learned of the operation, but now there are e-mail memos showing that he was briefed on the op in July of 2010. We also know that he knew of the op well before that since he gave a speech in 2009 in which he told the Mexican audience that the operation was underway. Can we get an impeachment started?

J) Neal Boortz takes us on a trip on the Way Back Machine to examine the root cause of the housing collapse, and why it is NOT Bush’s fault. He also asks why the media has completely ignored the story.

K) On Tuesday, The Won said “It’s time to pass this jobs bill and get America working again!” Senator Mitch McConnell tried to do just that. He called for an immediate vote on Obama’s “Save My Job Bill” by trying to attach it to another piece of legislation. Senate Majority Leader Dingy Harry Reid blocked the move. Obama continues to blame the GOP for delaying his bill, but who blocked a vote on it?

L) On top of that, Dingy and the Senate Dems are changing all of Obama’s provisions to pay for the “Save My Job Bill”, since all of the tax and fee increases presented by The Chosen One are a bit unpalatable leading up to next year’s election.

M) Don’tcha just love it when a liberal blowhard gets completely schooled on live television? Once again we see the pattern. Liberal women are loud, obnoxious, ugly, and never know the facts. Conservative women are restrained, attractive, and smart.

N) This retired Squid has just one thing to say regarding this video…OOH-RAH!

10-1-2011 The Weekend Claw

Another week comes to a close. I checked the news wires on every break Friday night to see if the White House pulled their usual act of releasing really bad news after the national news shows on a Friday, but alas there was nothing earth-shattering.

A) How far are the courts going to go in getting rid of all of YOUR rights in favor of large corporate interests? In Wisconsin, Judge Patrick J. Fiedler has decided that individuals have no fundamental right to own their own dairy cows, drink unpasteurized milk, or even to produce and consume the foods of their own choosing. Is Wisconsin now part of the Soviet Union or something? How much campaign cash has been donated to this judge by Monsanto and Archer Daniels Midland?

B) I know that there are a lot of people out there (including Ron Paul, Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton) who are sympathetic to the cause of the so-called “palestinians” and want the US to sell out Israeli land for a possible, but highly unlikely, peace. The reality of the situation is that we are looking at a repeat of the Czechoslovakia situation from 1938 in which Hitler portrayed a German minority, which could have moved to the lands of their own people in Germany if the German people really cared about them, that occupied strategic land in another country as victims of an evil oppressor. Now it is an arab minority living in strategic Israeli lands, while their own fellow arabs, who could offer them land, don’t want to have anything to do with them except use them to fire up their own people and help destroy Israel.

C) Here is yet another analysis of Obama’s “Save My Job Bill”. I know high school students who could come up with a better plan.

D) Newt Gingrich showed once again that he would be an outstanding White House Chief of Staff and strategist when he unveiled a new version of the “Contract With America” this week. I have heard him talk about it on the radio, but haven’t had the time to completely go through it. What I do know of it looks and sounds pretty good, and it is still a work in progress. If he didn’t have the personal baggage and “dislikability”, he would be a good choice for the nomination, but as is he would never win the general election, even against Obama.

E) Just in case any of you have been drinking Ann Coulter’s Chris Christie Kool-Aid, take a look at some of the baggage Christie would bring to the table, including saying illegal immigration is not a crime, and then ask if he is a worthy candidate. He has also supported assault weapons bans, opposed concealed-carry laws, and believes in Al Gore’s Human Origin Global Warming And Similar Horrors (HOGWASH).

F) After reading this headline I had just one simple question…is Obama’s Secret Service call sign “Magneto”???

G) It may be one of the most beautiful areas on earth, but between the massed extreme liberalism of Seattle, the fact that a major eruption of Mount Rainier would wipe out the entire city within 45 minutes (with zero survivors), and this new seismic discovery I don’t think I will ever make Whidbey Island or the Olympic Peninsula my home.

H) Ahhhhh…the Arab Spring, where dictators and other non-Islamist leaders were overthrown, where the Muslim Brotherhood took over a peaceful Egypt, and now where 20,000+ anti-aircraft missiles have gone missing. How many of those missiles are now in the hands of Islamist militant groups?

I) A Congressional report is now showing just how catastrophic the automatic budget cuts will be to the Department of Defense when the “super committee” fails to come up with a bipartisan plan for $1.5 trillion in deficit reductions. Simply put, our military will be in a weaker status than the Jimmy Carter Hollow Force. This is exactly what Obama and the Democrats wanted, and why they gladly accepted the “super committee” plan in that “debt deal”. They have exactly zero intent to let the “super committee” be anything close to successful. This is also another example of why all of the leadership of the GOP must be removed and replaced with Constitutional conservatives.

J) More proof that the left wants an end to our proud military is found in another predictable bit of incrementalism. Now that they have lifted the ban on open homosexuality in the military, the next step is to remove the ban on transgenders, a group that includes he-she’s, she-he’s, cross-dressers, and other psychologically screwed up people. Do ya think this might give patriotic real Americans cause to reconsider joining our military?

K) Rush Limbaugh is now publicly stating what a bunch of us bloggers have been screaming for the past few years. The GOP establishment does not want any real conservatives to ever be nominated for POTUS. Real conservatism would upset their apple cart.

L) In addition to the half-billion that the taxpayers lost in the politically-connected Solyndra case, there are a number of other “green” companies getting government handouts totaling almost $5 billion right now, and when you take a look under the surface you notice that every single one of them is run by big-time Democrat donors and many of them have family connections to powerful Democrats. On top of that, the mainstream media is ignoring the story as if it is nothing more than a basic neighborhood drug deal (obeying their orders from the White House). This whole episode sticks of 3-day old skunk roadkill in the Texas summer. Do the Republicans in Congress have the “equipment” to make hay of this?

M) Here’s your “No S###, Sherlock!” Moment of the Year. Barack Obama stated that ethics would not have made his list of favorite subjects when he was in school, admitting that “ethics is about right and wrong”. We would never have guessed that from the leader of the most unethical administration in history.

N) Janeane Barfalo is at it again. She’s throwing up the racism card regarding GOP voters who support Herman Cain. Let me get this straight. If Republicans support a black man because of his ideas and policies, they are racists. If Republicans oppose a black man because of his ideas and policies, they are racists. If Republicans see a black man on television, they are racists. Where does the nonsense end?

O) Here are some more facts about taxing the rich that the Democrats probably don’t want you to see. It kinda destroys their arguments, again. Damn that Algoracle and his infernal internet.

P) American forces scored a nice victory this week with the sending of American-born muslim al-Qaida terrorist “cleric” Anwar al-Awlaki to his seventy two virgin male camels. Ron Paul responded by calling it an “assassination” and condemned the Obama Administration for not giving the illegal combatant a proper trial despite the fact that his being an illegal combatant means he has forfeited all rights to any legal protection according to the Geneva Conventions. How many times do we need to inform Ron Paul and his Paulbots that muslim terrorists are at war with us, with all of our allies, with Israel, and with anybody who is not a muslim? He once again has proven himself to be just as unqualified for the office of President as Barack Hussein Obama.

Q) This is rich. Mexican drug lords being held in American prisons are complaining about the conditions of their detentions. They are held in solitary confinement in maximum security facilities, which they contend violates international treaties. They have even found American judges who agree with them! These are cartel founders and leaders who have brutally murdered many people and ordered the murders of hundreds, in some cases maybe even thousands, more. If they really want to complain, we can make things a lot less expensive for the taxpayers and give true justice to the victims. Once per week we could take one of them, slice open his leg, and toss him in the waters off Catalina Island or in the Florida Straits. Within 30 minutes the complaining would end permanently.

R) I’ve said before that some people just need to take some drugs and chill out, but now it has been shown that “magic mushrooms” might have a positive longer-term effect than anyone ever thought of.

9-28-2011 The Weekly Claw

Is it Wednesday already? The Crawfish has been a rather bizzy bee, which has cut heavily into my news surfing time. That means you are blessed with a much shorter tome than usual.

A) Michael Moore-on has announced that he is boycotting the state of Georgia because Georgia executed a black man who was a cop killer. Georgia reacted by saying, “Thanks, we didn’t want your fat liberal arse here anyway!”

B) Rick Perry has been pilloried by the media and their allies in the Democratic Party, along with Mitt Romney, for his attacks on Social Security. That’s what happens when someone is 100% correct in exposing liberal demagoguery. You see, Texans showed the way in replacing Social Security with a better plan in the early 1980s, until the Democrats closed that door for good. It is time to reopen that door!

C) Every time Herman Cain opens his mouth or puts words on paper, I seem to like him more. His plan for real reform in the realm of taxation is the best of any politician out there with the sole exception of The Fair Tax. While I don’t believe straw polls are worth anything in reality, I hope his big victory in Florida gives his campaign a big boost.

D) Herman Cain wrote this article for Human Events back in 2006. If anything, it has become more relevant in the past five years.

E) One of the main plans that the Democrats had when Obama took office was to deeply slash our military capabilities. Even without the disabling cuts that the military budget would take if the “super-committee” fails to agree on a deficit reduction plan, the military budget would plummet to levels not seen since the 1930s in terms of a percentage of the overall budget. Take a look in this article at what kind of cuts we would face, and then realize that how much the Democrats hate our military and all it stands for.

F) Did you know that union violence in support of “legitimate union objectives” is not illegal? The Supremes of the early 70s even upheld that notion. It is well past time to change most of our laws regarding union activity.

G) The Chosen One has been trying out new campaign mantras recently, and one that he seems to like is blaming Congress for doing nothing, since the Blame-Bush thingy ain’t working anymore. If he really wants to go there, he needs to take a look at what Congress has done this year. The Harry Reid Senate has only recorded 137 votes, while the GOP House has made 711 votes, including over a dozen pro-growth bills that have gone nowhere in the Senate.

H) OMG! Obama, like, has been turned down by one of his, ya know, core constituency cable networks. MTV rejected his campaign’s overtures and actually stated it doesn’t do political work. Really? MTV has been one of the major media players in every Democratic Party campaign since the network started!

I) New unConstitutional regulations being put forth by the EPA seem to be a key to Obama’s “jobs program”, as they would require at least 230,000 bureaucrats and $21,000,000,000+ to administrate. Of course the cost to businesses would be much more. The EPA wants to implement these regulations under the Clean Air Act, which authorizes CONGRESS to make regulations, but not the EPA. Government jobs are the only ones the Obama Administration knows how to create or save.

J) How dead-in-the-water is Obama’s “Save My Job Bill”? Well, when you see that it has been introduced in the House and Senate “at the request of the President” and has a grand total of zero co-sponsors (combined House and Senate), I think that qualifies as a big ker-plop.

K) Every time someone claims that all of the Reagan and Bush tax cuts were only “for the rich”, just show them the graph in this article and ask them if they are ready to face reality instead of Democrat talking points.

L) Watch as Judge Judy tries, seemingly in vain, to get this societal leech to understand that he is misusing taxpayer money, and then she turns and nukes the plaintiff for being an idiot as well. Yes, we support this kind of stupidity with our hard earned dollars.

M) The Obama Administration continued their anti-Israel/pro-muslim terrorist policies this week as they called Israel’s approval of more housing for Israelis within Israel “counterproductive”. Jerusalem is 100% Israeli. The so-called “palestinians” have no legitimate claim to the Holy City, since their allies lost all of that territory when they tried to exterminate Israel.

9-24-2011 The Weekend Claw

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”.
