Chew On This: As the World Burns….

Posted in politcs, rankers with tags , , , , , , on 3, December 2013 by chockblock

Chew on these tasty links (they are a little spicy, beware):

So what is the government doing? What is the priority?

The Colorado Springs Gazette reports that the Air Force Office of Special investigations (OSI comparable to the Army’s CID and Navy’s NCIS) has been running confidential informants among the student body at the Air Force Academy;
— “Snitching on classmates at the Air Force Academy“, This Aint’ Hell

Oh yeah, those informants are “disavowed” afterward.

The Afforadable Care Act’s web portal still isn’t working so sayth Instapundit.

The DoD is “floating” a plan to close Commissaries based in the US. Mind you, those are where many service members redeem their EBT (foodstamp) and WIC bennies. Cause we’re paid too much or something.

RSM gives is them gem from the New York Times:

Got that, troops? “Tough choices,” your compensation is “on the table,” because defending your nation isn’t really anything special.

On the other hand, says New York Times columnist Paul Krugman, something must be done for America’s real heroes, retail clerks:
Ask NY Times Who Deserves More Pay: America’s Troops or Fast-Food Workers?, The

So as the world burns, the DoD wants to focus on spice smokers and the Media wants to cut our benefits.

Really? At a time when we need the men and women in uniform the most they want to focus on things that don’t matter or view us as a liability.

The last time(s) we did this bad things happened. In the 30’s the military was ragged and understaffed with wooden guns, flour sack “bombs” and jeeps with wooden signs that said “tank” used in exercises. In the 70’s, the drugged out, worn out military was barely able to keep up with the USSR. Thief and drug abuse was rampant as the military was ignored, there were military familes on food stamps. In the 90’s, service members were on food stamps (again), all four services bled numbers. Worse, pilots, senior NCO’s and officers left in droves taking years of combat experience with them.

In the wars that followed, the men and women in uniform paid the price as lack of training, lack of support and bad gear bit us in the ass. We got lucky in Desert Storm, but after the Gulf War the cuts just kept coming (see above).

The post 9/11 era brought enough money to expand the military and I get that there has to be a contraction. But the cuts to pay and bennies AND cuts to training and readiness will lead to a hollow force. A hollow force just as the world isn’t getting peaceful.

It’s getting worse.

We can’t repeat the 30’s and the 70’s.

There are still service members’ families on food stamps. College, medical, dental and other “costly” benefits keep qualified people in the ranks. We can’t draft experience and esprit de corps. We can’t fly, drive or sail ragged rusted out tanks, planes and ships.

Either we are committed to Allies or it’s just empty talk. Either we fight for our principles or accept a world dominated by countries that hate us.

The world won’t wait for us to dither.

Chew On This: Truth to Power

Posted in politcs, rankers with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on 28, August 2013 by chockblock

And this nation finds itself on the brink of war. Ten years ago we hear the left howl in protest. And we heard many lies from the “reality based community”.

The more things change:

  1. A lefty author has the vapors over the phrase “Support Our Troops” This Ain’t Hell takes the whinny leftist down. Anti-war was naver about supporting troops or ending war, it was about Marxist hogwash and hating America.
  2. Instapundit looks at the Left’s war on Golden Rice and other GMO’s. Even Slate finds the left’s lies anti-science.
  3. links to a report on that Hillary’s press secretary refuses to admits that Alger Hiss was a dirty commie spy. Truth never stopped the left, why start now?
  4. Slate doubles down on #waronwomen, Ace o’Spades points out that somehow slience is teh sexist.
  5. Roger Kimall on a former US attorney flying into a rage when someone actually speaks truth to power. There are realfacts and there are goodfacts. He just wanted to send James O’Keefe to the Ministry of Love.
  6. Someone on Buzzfeed does speak truth to the power and the Guardian’s Fruzsina Eordogh won’t have any of that nonsense. Legal Insurrection is on it like a hobo on a ham sandwich.
  7. President goes to war without Congressional Approval. Stop Bushoh wait..never mind!

It was never about stopping war, world peace, science or truth. It’s always about the left and their love of power. The power to control the debate, take from your wallet and push other people around.

If you question the left’s agenda, you’re a tool or a pawn of the rich/Koch/government/GOP/Jews/girl scouts/the church/rich white men/etc. If you don’t believe the left you’re a racist/in denial/stupid.

They don’t what a debate. When there is one, they go insane. Either we take up the fight or we get the left’s boot on our faces.

The Party of Free Stuff

Posted in politcs, rankers with tags , , , , , , , , on 14, April 2013 by chockblock

“Here is something I don’t understand: liberals are often revealed as vile, vulgar hatemongers–not all of them, of course, but far too many–yet they never seem to pay a penalty at the polls. Why is that?”
— John Hinderaker “Why Aren’t More People Repelled by the Left?“, Power Line.

“You’re not going to sell swing voters on far-left liberalism by telling them their kids don’t really belong to them, but tell them that they have a right “at all times” to things they need and you’re golden.”
–Allahpundit, “New MSNBC promo: You have the right to health care, education, housing, and food at all times“,

Ask a stupid question. Student load debt is over a trillion, the teachers union is stuck in the past and liberals are attacking adoption and wiretapping their foes.

Vote Democrat, it’s easier than getting a job.

For decades the left has sold itself as the party of free stuff[tm]. Soak the rich to pay for stuff. College, welfare, gov’ment cheese, bennies out the wazoo and you are entitled to it. It’s your right. And if someone objects that racist!!1!!11!

The reality is that the country is broke. Employers can’t keep up with the new healthcare mandate, they are fleeing California and the blue states, Detroit is in shambles and the press is in the tank for liberal politicians.

The answer from our liberal overlords is more taxes and more spending of course. Never mind that we’re taxed to the hilt. The attacks will increase, the press will spin and spin, making dissent into a hate crime.

And the country will drown in red ink.

But hey, you’re “entitled” to free stuff.

Here and now

Two youtube videos to chew on:

Yes some NYT editorial from a law professor states the “reasons” to give up on the constitution and overthrow the law of the land.

When the law and public opinion don’t go their way, this is the left, (╯°□°)╯︵,,.┻━┻._.,

Bill Whittle states the obvious:

┬─┬ノ( º _ ºノ) Now the article is over, let me put it back up.

Chew on this: 2013

Some tasty links:

the left fails economics forever. I guess they want us to live in a third world country with hyper inflation.
The left always has some excuse, the rich, low taxes or some defense. Given that the left controls two branches of government, the branch that spends money and the branch that collects it, they have no excuse. So out comes the crazy solutions: more taxes, a platinum coin, soon pension funds may be at risk.

The left promised the moon: free stuff and a free ride. I have to wonder, they played to people’s greed to get into office. When the budget reckoning comes, will they play to the rage? Programs will have to be cut, may will be canceled to fix the budget. Entitlement fraud happens despite the left playing the race card, accusing people of racism when the welfare rolls have to be fixed. So the right, the tea party, ordinary Americans, thinking, will become the enemy. The economy and the country will be fixed until the next generation will fall for the okeydoke.

Well played lefties, well played.

In the Carboniferous Epoch we were promised abundance for all,
By robbing selected Peter to pay for collective Paul;
But, though we had plenty of money, there was nothing our money could buy,
And the Gods of the Copybook Headings said: “If you don’t work you die.”

— “The Gods of the Copybook Headings“, Rudyard Kipling

Dopes on the ropes

It is a terrible thing, make someone dependent on something, so dependent that they need it. Then the thing is taken away. A real dick move right?

For decades, the left as sold college and the welfare state as a golden ticket. No worries, big Santa Government will pay for it all. Until the country goes broke:

  1. Their ideas don’t work and they know it, so now all they can do is try to make you think their failure is somehow a statement of principle” on the 150 to 200 square feet of living space “houses” appearing in Washington DC. (via Insty)
  2. Eleven states, including California, have more residents who draw money from the government—as employees, pensioners, or welfare recipients—than people employed in the private sector.“: Walter Russell Mead
  3. Welfare Spending Dwarfs Poverty” and “It’s Time To Stick It To the Blue States” both via Powerline
  4. Detroit CouncilPerson Puts Teh Onion Out of Business“:
  5. Hey, Fat Cat Unions: Pay Your “Fair Share””, Michelle Malkin
  6. “UNPATRIOTIC MILLIONAIRES: Obama-Endorsing WaPo Rushes To Pay Dividends Before Obama Tax Increase Kicks In.Instaundit alerts the 99%!!

The left loves socialism as long as other people pay for it. If you disagree, your a racist/sexist/member of the 1% and hate people.

I’ll tell the left who’s racist. Racism is telling people that they don’t have to work or earn a living. Racism is telling them to vote year after year and their problems will be solved by someone else. Racism is kicking the can forward, telling the people of today that their problems are someone else’s fault and if they just hate them enough and tax them enough their problems will be solved. And then they toss around blame and offer no solutions when it all goes south. When the money runs out they have nothing. And the people hurt the most are those who need that money they really have nothing.

“City Council member JoAnn Watson said Tuesday the citizens support of Obama in last month’s election was enough reason for the president to bailout the struggling the city. (Click the video player to listen)

“Our people in an overwhelming way supported the re-election of this president and there ought to be a quid pro quo and you ought to exercise leadership on that,” said Watson. “Of course, not just that, but why not?”

The White House has expressed no plans to bailout the cash-crunched city that some experts say could run out of money by the end of the year.

The federal government has bailed out cities in the past, however. In 1975, President Gerald Ford extended more than $2 billion in credit to New York City to help it avoid a financial collapse.”

Detroit councilwoman to Obama: We voted for you, now bail us out: By FOX 2 News Staff DETROIT

Heh, Gerald Ford. Republican Gerald Ford? The stumbling Chevy Chase character bailed out New York City? Yes he did.

This time there will be no bailouts for the blue states (and cities). Sure big labor, Wall Street and K Street got theirs, but the people who need the blue model to live will get screwed. They sowed a crop of class warfare, dreams and envy, they will reap red ink.

So 2008 was supposed to be a break from the George W. Bush presidency. The left kept jumping up and down saying that he was an evil moron etc.

The media really didn’t know the people they put in the White House and they never bothered to find out. We have an administration that kowtows to an angry mob, thinks it can advance a liberal agenda on the backs of dead Mexicans, downplays a Marine unit that is non-mission capable and the media just goes along with it.

I get that the left hated Bush. The election, the Iraq war etc. The man could never catch a break. However our current government seems to be doing a worse job. The Arab spring? Came about because of Saddam’s fall. The administration sits on its hands as crazed radicals take control of Egypt and demand the release of the man behind the 1993 bombing of the World Trade center. Instead of charting its own course, the DOJ works with a liberal organization to slander reporters covering the DOJ. The media doesn’t cover the war in Afghanistan, yet lamets that there are no protests and outcry over it. Energy policy that hits the poor and working families hardest. There was never any hope and change. Only Washington insiders protecting their own. I’ve always suspected that the conspiracy theories about Bush were the left’s wishful thinking. They wanted to be able to manipulate the government for their agenda. Hence the millions wasted on Solyndra, high-speed rail in cali and our complete loss of influence in the Middle East. Why does the administration have to arrest a filmmaker?

Because theory and ideology are more important than real people and elections are more important than the truth. The lunatics are running the asylum.

You are what you hate lefties. You gave us a government that is made of fail. With the coming budget cuts and you’re leadership’s failure to act, this is your fault. Bush is out of office. This is not inherited . This. Is. Your. Mess.

Hot Crew! : Emlia Clarke

Emilia Clarke (born c. 1987) is an English actress, who is best known for portraying Daenerys Targaryen in the HBO medieval-fantasy series, Game of Thrones.[1]

And she’s a good reason to tune in…

The liberal narrative

Posted in politcs, Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on 1, September 2012 by chockblock

Liberals have a strange way of viewing the world:

As so it beings. The left is losing it’s mind as it’s confronted with reality. Maybe the voters are tired of not having jobs. Maybe the fading “Hope and Change” posters just aren’t enough.

There will be anger and protests. The “unbiased” media will stay in the tank for the left. There will be shitty movies and stupid actors.

Don’t panic! The key is for conservatives (the real reality based community) to stay on message. Let the lefties dress up in stupid costumes, parade fake veterans and riot. We have a party and a ticket that will fix what’s wrong. But we have to vote them into office. The left is good at shrieking when it can’t get it’s way. We need to be better than that. Gaffes will happen, it’s still a long way to November. But we have a candidate, a plan and a platform.

The left has it’s dog whistles. They bitterly cling to Bush, even though he’s been out of office for 3 1/2 years.

How's that hopey changey thing now?

About that Todd Akin fella…

Posted in politcs, rankers with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on 21, August 2012 by chockblock

So it seems that some GOP backbencher opened his mouth and the stupid thus flowed fourth:

““Legitimate rape” became a Twitter trending topic in the U.S. this afternoon after liberal blog Talking Points Memo posted a video of Rep. Todd Akin claiming that victims of “legitimate rape” are unlikely to become pregnant.” Twitchy

A washed up actor wanted Sarah Palin “gang raped.” Wayne Brady had to apologize for mocking Sarah Palin’s child. And a democrat was caught trying to have sex with a 17 year old boy.

And the media was silent.

The media is in the tank for the left. Anything to put democrats in office and keep them there.
$500 million was lost to Solyndra’s bankruptcy and all the taxpayers got was some crappy artwork.

I’ve held that the left will go insane, I think they already have. Of course the GOP establishment likes to front candidates who are brainless. It’s to be expected from stuffy old money “conservatives” more interested in mooching off the taxpayer. That’s why the 2008 McCain campaign sucked donkey balls, they ran a 1960’s era Republican campaign and forgot about the Tea Party. Akin is an oxygen sucker, someone the party should kick to the curb.

The left? A bunch of vile commie punks who will wreck the economy much like they did Hollywood.
