Reading the vaporings of the unstable of editorial writers at the New York Times, one can well believe that the editorial board believes that the New Deal saved America in the 1930s. Their editorial page is a WPA-like project, providing work for the otherwise unemployable.
Every school year we get to read about American schools which are exposing our young people to Islamic indoctrination under the guise of "multi-culturalism". I'm glad these dhimwits
weren't running the schools during World War II. They would have had their pupils goose-stepping through the halls and at gym class.
When Rand Paul was campaigning for the Republican senatorial nomination in Kentucky, I predicted that he would lose if nominated. He has since not only been nominated, but has opened up a considerable lead in the polls against his Democratic opponent. I would like to say here that if I am proved wrong on this one, I will accept my embarrassment with a big smile on my face. Go, Rand!
Is anyone else as tired as I am of Michelle "Boo-Hoo" Obama complaining about her sheltered, priviledged life? The woman was raised in a comfortable style that fewer than half of Americans can match, she sails through an Ivy League college without attaining any intellectual distinction (the one thesis she wrote that leaked out was a self-pitying embarrassment), she gets a job at a hospital which pays six figures because she's the daughter of a prominent political family, she gets a position created for her at that hospital (with a $200,000 raise) the same day that her husband becomes a United States Senator (the job was eliminated when she left the hospital -- can you say "bribe"?), she wastes millions of taxpayer dollars on her entertainment and vacations while First "Lady", she's narcissistic enough to think that being FL gives her the right to tell us what food we should eat, and now she says that being FL is "hell"? Poor little rich girl!
If you hate the life so much, Michelle, just give it up -- and go away!
The Crab notes with disgust that the teacher's union machine in Washington DC (Den of Corruption) has defeated reform-minded Mayor Adrian Fenty's bid for re-election by beating him with a typical Democratic hack in the Democratic primary. If the Republicans had any sense, they would select Fenty as their nominee for the usually-unattainable office. It would be fun watching the septic stream media trying to cover that race.
Did anyone else notice how abruptly the WikiLeaks scandal vanished from the headlines when it was discovered that the leaking soldier, PFC Bradley Manning, is a militant (pun intended) homosexual? They don't want a debate on this matter, or else some unkind souls and rigorous thinkers might decide that having homosexuals in the military might be a bad idea. Number me among them.
Given the weekly revelations about terrible ideas in the so-called health care reform bill (I contend that "deform" would be more accurate), maybe the bill should be referred to as the Patient Protection from Affordable Health Care Act.
Funny, isn't it, how we are supposed to hold the youthful dabblings of Republican Senate candidate Christine O'Donnell
with witchcraft against her, but we are never to mention the Muslim schools that BO attended, or the sincerity of his conversion to Christianity? Actually, as an old-fashioned Catholic Christian, I contend that their were no NO Christians in Jeremiah Wright's indoor circus. To call that Christianity is to rob the word of its meaning. Wright was (and is) working for the other side.
