You’re a failure - now get over it, Niggas Behaving Badly (Wrestling), A Relativist, Wrapped in a Muslim, Inside an Agnostic, Atheist doctors 'more likely to hasten death'

You’re a failure - now get over it - Telegraph UK
New research suggests our obsession with success is a handicap, says Max Davidson

Overheard in a boulangerie in the Dordogne last week: “If you are always ’appy, you are not truly ’appy. To be truly ’appy, you must first be sad.” Don’t the French put these things beautifully? And, of course, the Frenchman speaking – waxing philosophical to an English tourist while queuing for his baguettes – was spot-on.

Uninterrupted success is less satisfying than success intertwined with failure. That is not rocket science – even if, ironically, American rocket scientists have just reached the same conclusion as the Frenchman.

A study at the University of Colorado Denver Business School, drawing on data from satellite launches and space shuttles, concludes that success may be sweeter, but failure is the better teacher.

“There is a tendency for organisations to ignore failure or to try not to focus on it,” note the authors of thereport. Vital lessons for the future are overlooked in the rush to put a brave face on disappointment.

A Relativist, Wrapped in a Muslim, Inside an Agnostic - The American Spectator

Why does a significant chunk of the American electorate think Obama is a Muslim? Let's count some of the reasons: he speaks of his "Muslim roots," says he hails from "generations of Muslims," was born to a line of Muslim males and given by them an Arabic name, went to a Muslim school in Islamic Indonesia, speaks glowingly of Islam whenever he gets the chance, holds a Ramadan dinner in the White House, tells his NASA head to turn the space agency into a Muslim outreach program, and last but not least insults doctrinal Christians routinely.

The voice of the people is the voice of God, the pander bears and demagogues of the left usually say. But not on this one. With great impatience they have appeared on cable shows this week to lecture the American people on Obama's "real" religion. Has the left-wing chattering class ever been more eager to pronounce a president Christian?

Mosque already preaching Shariah near Ground Zero - WND
Seeking to 'raise flag of Allah' next to World Trade Center site

While the nation has been focused on a proposed Islamic center near Ground Zero, a mosque has been functioning just four blocks from the site of the 9/11 attacks with rumored plans to build even closer to the spot that once housed the World Trade Center.

The mosque, the Masjid Manhattan, recently boasted of plans to construct a "House of Allah" next to the World Trade Center, exclaiming on its website, "Help us raise the flag of 'LA ILLAHA ILLA ALLAH' in downtown Manhattan!"

The Masjid Manhattan has been holding classes at 20 Warren Street, four blocks from Ground Zero. The mosque also holds prayer services several times a day at a cramped location at 384 Broadway, eleven blocks from the former World Trade Center site.

Atheist doctors 'more likely to hasten death'

Study finds medics' faith affects care of terminally ill, as hospital clinicians admit 'ethically controversial' decisions
Terminally-ill patients would be well advised to find out the religious beliefs of their doctor, according to research showing the effect of faith on a doctor's willingness to make decisions that could hasten death.

Doctors who are atheist or agnostic are twice as likely to take decisions that might shorten the life of somebody who is terminally ill as doctors who are deeply religious – and doctors with strong religious convictions are less likely even to discuss such decisions with the patient, according to Professor Clive Seale, from the centre for health sciences at Barts and the London school of medicine and dentistry.

"If I were a patient facing end of life care, I would want to know what my doctor's views were on religious matters – whether they are non-religious or religious and whether the doctor felt that would influence them in the kinds of decisions they were looking at," said Seale.

ObamaCare May Screw Students' Health Plans, Another Tolerant Liberal, Opposition to Ground Zero mosque up to 71%, The Deficit Is a Symptom, Spending Is the Disease, WTF! The man who claims to have wrote ObamaCare, Max Baucus, admits that he hasn't read the entire bill

Obamacare Might Kill Off College Students' Health Plans - The Weekly Standard

According to President Obama, "If you like your health-care plan, you can keep your health-care plan. Period. No one will take it away. No matter what." You can keep your plan, that is, if your employer doesn't decide to dump it in the wake of Obamacare's passage (as many major employers are already considering doing), if you aren't one of the estimated 51 percent of American workers (66 percent of workers in small businesses) – according to the administration’s own figures – whose plans would have to be changed or dropped under Obamacare, and if you don't have a Medicare Advantage plan or a consumer-driven (high-deductible, low-premium) plan. Now it appears that another type of plan might well be on the chopping block: college students' health plans.

…But you sure didn’t read this in the state-run media.
On Wednesday Pelosi-Democrat Russ Carnahan admitted that a campaign staffer was responsible for firebombing his St. Louis finance office.
The suspect who firebombed Rep. Russ Carnahan’s office last week was reportedly a disgruntled progressive activist employed by the democrat. An unnamed source familiar with the case released the information. Suspect Chris Powers reportedly was upset because he did not get paid so he firebombed the Carnahan finance offices at 2 in the morning.

The Deficit Is a Symptom, Spending Is the Disease - National Review

We cannot tax or grow our way out of this hole.

Sometime in the next week or so, the U.S. national debt will exceed $13.4 trillion.

To put that in perspective: If you earned $1 every second, it would take you 425,000 years to earn enough money to pay off that debt. And it’s not likely to get much better any time soon. According to the Congressional Budget Office, the United States will run up more than $1 trillion in debt next year as well, and for years to come. And with entitlement programs like Social Security and Medicare facing more than $100 trillion in future unfunded liabilities, we may look back on this level of debt as representing the “good old days.”

Yet, as frightening as those numbers are, focusing on the deficit and debt is to confuse the symptom with the disease. As Milton Friedman often explained, the real issue is not how you pay for government spending — debt or taxes — but the spending itself. In other words: Don’t just look at the deficit, look at why we have a deficit. And the reason we have a deficit is pretty simple: Government spends too much.

The New Apartheid: World Silent on S. African Black v. White Genocide - Debbie Schlussel

In the 1980s, the world outcry was loud against racist Apartheid in South Africa. We heard the “Free South Africa” slogan often, and many companies that did business with the country were boycotted. Students at many college campuses built “South African shanties” on campus in protest (on my campus, the University of Michigan, one shanty read, “Free South Africa,” with someone else scrawling, “Not to Mention West Cleveland,” underneath). But now that the shoe is on the other foot–and has been for some years since Black extremists took over the South African government, race-based mobs rule much of the country. The same goes for some other African nations with White populations, such as Zimbabwe, where White-owned farms have been seized by the government and there is an epidemic of racist rapes of White women.

Bizarre, Crime Woman Nabbed For Auto Erotic Crime - Smoking Gun
Cincinnati woman was caught multitasking herself in Pontiac

A Cincinnati woman was simultaneously masturbating with a sex toy and watching a pornographic video while driving last week, according to cops who arrested her on assorted criminal charges.
Colondra Hamilton, 36, was pulled over last Tuesday evening in a traffic stop triggered when cops noticed she was driving a 2008 Pontiac with overly tinted windows.
That’s when officers noticed that Hamilton’s pants were unbuttoned. And she had a vibrator in her lap. Questioned by cops, Hamilton admitted to engaging in auto erotic manipulation, and revealed that she had also been watching a porno movie that was playing on the laptop of a friend in the passenger seat, according to an Elmwood Place Police Department report.
Hamilton, pictured in the above mug shot, was booked into the Hamilton County jail on a misdemeanor count of driving with “impaired alertness.” Hamilton was also charged with possession of drug paraphernalia since cops found a “broken piece of crack pipe” in her purse.
She was not, however, accused of using the pipe while she was driving and masturbating and watching an X-rated film, the title of which was not released.

White House Disappointed with America… Again! - Heritage
The U.S. State Department announced that the U.S. had submitted its “Report of the United States of America” to the United Nations (UN) High Commissioner for Human Rights. This report was submitted as part of the Universal Periodic Review (UPR) conducted by the UN Human Rights Council (HRC). In November, the U.S. Administration will formally present the findings of its report to the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva. Judging from the content of the U.S. report, that November presentation will consist of much wailing and gnashing of teeth over the inadequacy of America.

African-American leaders and intellectuals express dissatisfaction with President Obama - The Daily Caller

With President Barack Obama’s approval ratings dipping below 50%, members of his strongest voting bloc have also started to voice displeasure with the way he has chosen to govern.

Since Obama has taken office African Americans have faced a number of disproportionate “highs,” few of them good, such as an exceptionally high unemployment rate, a high foreclosure rate, and a high number of African-American political figures deprived of the president’s support or dismissed from his administration (such as former White House social secretary Desiree Rogers, former Department of Agriculture official Shirley Sherrod, South Carolina Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Alvin Greene, former green energy czar Van Jones, Democratic Illinois Sen. Roland Burris, Democratic New York Gov. David Patterson, would-be Democratic New York Senate candidate Harold Ford Jr., and Democratic Reps. Charlie Rangel of New York, Maxine Waters of California and Kendrick Meek of Florida).

Dr. Cornel West, professor of African American Studies at Princeton University, is one African-American leader who has been far from pleased with Obama’s neglect of African-American issues. West told The Daily Caller that he has been extremely frustrated with the president’s relative disinterest in civil rights issues.

“He can take the black base for granted because he assumes we have nowhere else to go,” West said. “But we just won’t put up with it. He has got to respect us.”

Barack Obama Vs. Majority Public Opinion - Investors Business Daily

Americans are being treated to welcome entertainment during the dog days of summer as we watch the Democrats wring their hands over Barack Obama's tone-deafness about political reality. Their despair about Obama is so painful that they are even calling on George W. Bush to come back and rescue Obama from his own mistakes.

The Democrats are reluctant to admit the truth that Obama is not a smart politician (like Bill Clinton, for example). Obama is a radical ideologue determined to "transform" America into the socialist mold, regardless of voter retaliation against Democratic candidates.

Let's tick off the issues where Obama staked out his lonely position at the same time public opinion polls showed the majority of Americans lining up on the other side. Obama's determination to achieve "change" doesn't include obeying the wishes of We the People.

Putting the Brakes on ObamaCare - Wall Street Journal
How a Republican Congress could begin the process of repealing this unpopular law.

If Republicans take control of one or both houses of Congress this fall, many will have been elected with a promise to "repeal and replace" ObamaCare. But what are their options, really? There likely will be an initial showdown, but President Obama will surely veto any challenge to the law, and it would be hard to imagine mustering the votes to overturn it.

Information is the key weapon. Republicans can use congressional hearings to explain what ObamaCare is doing to the economy and the health sector. Their strongest cases would be built around jobs, the cost of health care, and the rising deficit.

If evidence shows that looming mandates on employers are crippling job-creation, they should be repealed. If health costs are rising, as they inevitably will be, Congress needs to hold hearings to investigate the causes and explain why the offending taxes and regulations must be repealed.

The Real Moderate Islam: Media Ignore Muslim Opposition to Ground Zero Mosque - MRC

Mosque critics Miss USA, Zhudi Jasser and Al-Arabiya director disregarded by networks.

To hear the network news shows report it, much of the opposition to the Ground Zero mosque stems from a fear of Islam. But in reality, there are many prominent Muslims who have spoken out against the location of the Ground Zero mosque – only to be ignored by the evening news shows.

During the past month, the evening news programs on ABC, NBC and CBS have featured quotes from Muslim Ground Zero supporters nine times, many of whom described opposition to the mosque as “bigoted” or “Islamophobic.” In contrast, from July 22 to Aug. 22 only one evening show gave air time to a Muslim who is opposed to the Ground Zero project. Critics of the mosque such as first Muslim Miss USA, Dr. Zhudi Jasser and the director of Al-Arabiya were ignored by the news shows.

“Don`t they realize that this is bigotry? To scapegoat on the Muslim-Americans for the acts of foreign terrorists is equivalent to scapegoating upon all Christians for the acts of Timothy McVeigh,” said Talat Hamdani, a Muslim-American woman who lost her son Mohammad, a hero first responder in the Sept. 11 attack, on CBS Evening News on Aug. 22.

On Aug. 16, ABC World News quoted Council on American-Islamic Relations spokesman Ibrahim Cooper, who said that “Even after 9/11, there was a reservoir of good will. We had people bringing flowers to mosques that were vandalized nationwide, but I've really never seen the level of Islamophobia that we're experiencing today.”

Only one Muslim-American who opposed the mosque was quoted on any of the shows. “To us, it is the grave site of our loved ones …We are saying please not here. Nowhere as a part of your religious freedom does it guarantee you a location,” said Neda Bolourchi on CBS Evening News on Aug. 22. Bolourchi lost her mother in the Sept. 11 attacks, on. Bolourchi had previously written about her opposition to the mosque in The Washington Post, yet only CBS managed to find her for an interview.

The White House War on Jobs - Townhall/Michelle Malkin

The "Summer of Recovery" is looking more and more like the Beltway Chainsaw Massacre for America's workers. As President Obama lolls on Martha's Vineyard with his well-heeled Chicago pals, a new Reuters/Ipsos poll shows that 72 percent of people are very worried about joblessness and 67 percent are very concerned about massive government spending.

After a nearly $1 trillion fiscal stimulus and several multibillion-dollar corporate and union bailouts, unemployment remains stuck near 10 percent nationwide; jobless claims rose again last week. One shudders to think how many more jobs will be on the chopping block after the vacationing president finishes "recharging his batteries."

Where Are the New Jobs? - Townhall John Stossel

Why isn't the economy recovering? After previous recessions, unemployment didn't get stuck at close to 10 percent. If left alone, the economy can and does heal itself, as the mistakes of the previous inflationary boom are corrected.

The problem today is that the economy is not being left alone. Instead, it is haunted by uncertainty on a hundred fronts. When rules are unintelligible and unpredictable, when new workers are potential threats because of Labor Department regulations, businesses have little confidence to hire. President Obama's vaunted legislative record not only left entrepreneurs with the burden of bigger government, it also makes it impossible for them to accurately estimate the new burden.

Fishermen against Obama job destruction - Michelle Malkin

Leaders of the recreational and commercial fishing industry are planning a boat protest against federal policies Thursday outside the harbor of Vineyard Haven on Martha’s Vineyard, where President Obama and his family are summer vacationing.

The protest is being organized after a bipartisan, bicameral coalition of federal lawmakers — including the core of the President’s Congressional base on banking and health care issues — have given up hope of working productively with Obama’s top appointee for oceans and fisheries, Jane Lubchenco, who heads the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
******
Muslim, Christian, or Marxist? - Accuracy In Media

When questions came up during the campaign about Barack Obama’s religious affiliation, his aides flatly asserted that he was a “practicing Christian” and was “baptized” in the Trinity United Church of Christ. However, some of the same questions have come up again in the wake of opinion polls finding people confused about Obama’s religious identity. Our media cannot understand the confusion.

For most in the media, it is cut-and-dried: Obama is a Christian. People who don’t believe it are dumb or misled.

But calling yourself something is not the same thing as proving it is the case. This claim deserves to be scrutinized, even when it involves a sensitive and personal matter such as religious belief.

Unfortunately for Obama and his backers, the same Obama campaign apparatus which claimed that he is a baptized Christian asserted that the mysterious “Frank” in Obama’s book, Dreams from My Father, was just a black civil rights activist. It turned out that “Frank” was Frank Marshall Davis, a Communist Party member under surveillance by the FBI who served as a mentor for a young Obama in Hawaii. The 600-page FBI file on Davis even suggests he was an espionage agent on behalf of the Soviet Union.

Dupes, a forthcoming book by Professor Paul Kengor, promises to take another close look at Obama’s Frank Marshall Davis connection.

So what the Obama presidential campaign says about Obama’s religious affiliation is not something to be taken at face value. They have a vested interest in making Obama look more acceptable to the American people.

As President, he has gone to church only a few times, which undermines the claim that he is a practicing Christian. People see him playing golf on Sunday; they don’t see him going to church.

It’s Good To Be In Obama’s Government - Boortz

Take a look at these statistics from the New York Post. Considering these facts, is it any wonder that the private sector is scared to grow?
  • From January 2008 to January 2010, private-sector jobs plunged from 115.5 million to 106.8 million. But the number of federal, state and local public employees climbed up a tick, from 22.3 million to 22.4 million, as economist Veronique de Rugy recently noted. In other words, some 8.7 million private-sector jobs vanished, while the public sector gained 100,000 jobs.
     
  • Private-sector jobs began to fall almost immediately after the onset of the recession in December 2007. But state and local jobs remained steady, at least until last month, when states finally started laying off their workers, too. As for federal employment, as of July, it was nearly 10 percent higher than back then.
     
  • On Aug. 1, 2008, the portion of our national debt held by the public stood at $5.4 trillion. Now it stands at more than $8.8 trillion. As of the second quarter, GDP was growing at 2.4 percent, but many economists expect the growth rate to be revised down to 1.3 percent. So while our economy is growing at less than $19 billion per month, we are borrowing, based on the last two years, at the rate of more than $141 billion per month -- 7½ times faster.
This is exactly how Obama and the Democrats would have it. More government means more power to them. The private sector is the enemy. They will go to great lengths to demonize individual success and they will work to paint the rich as evil and greedy. The funny thing is .. at the rate we are going, the greedy rich will eventually be the very same government workers that they created. Then who will they pander to? Then whose pockets will they plunder?

Medical Care Facts and Fables - Real Clear Politics

By Thomas Sowell

There is so much political spin, and so many numbers games being played, when it comes to medical care, that we have to go back to square one and the simplest common sense, in order to get some rational idea of what government-run medical care means. In particular, we need to examine the claim that the government can "bring down the cost of medical care."

The most basic fact is that it is cheaper to remain sick than to get medical treatment. What is cheapest of all is to die instead of getting life-saving medications and treatment, which can be very expensive.

Despite these facts, most of us tend to take a somewhat more parochial view of the situation when it is we ourselves who are sick or who face a potentially fatal illness. But what if that decision is taken out of your hands under ObamaCare and is being made for you by a bureaucrat in Washington?

'1st term of Obama administration is over' - WND

Poll shows Americans aligned with states against fed intrusion

A new poll indicates that as far as accomplishments are concerned, "the first term of the Obama administration is over" because of the president's far-reaching federalization agenda that has included requirements to buy government-approved health insurance and to forbid enforcement of local laws protecting residents.

"That there is such strong opposition against the national government on a variety of issues must be alarming to those inside the Obama administration, in part because it creates a serious barrier they will have to overcome should they launch an effort to repair the image of the national government," said pollster Fritz Wenzel of Wenzel Strategies, which conducts the WND/WENZEL POLLS.

"It almost certainly eliminates any opportunity for popular support for any new national legislative initiative, such as cap and trade. To the extent that popular support is required to pass any sweeping new law, it is fair to surmise that the first term of the Obama administration is over," Wenzel said.

Advice from the Ledge - The American Spectator

It's really not a great time to be a Democrat. The economy remains, for the most part, as depressed as the millions of Americans who cannot find work, while scandal has engulfed the Party, with key, ranking members under indictment. Taking fire from both friend and foe, the president is mired in trouble, primarily
of his own making. And probably most distressing of all, the latest Rasmussen Generic Congressional Ballot poll has them nine points behind their rivals. Things are so glum that they're even
begging
George W. Bush -- noted liar and warmonger -- to come to the aid of his successor and make peace. No, things are not looking good for Barack Obama and friends.

So, faced with all of this adversity, what is the donkey party to do, you ask? Well, unless you have been in a cave for the last two decades or so, you know that their game plan calls for them to go on offense. Now in the past, Friends of Bill gathered in the War Room to plot their forays; sometimes vicious character
assassination against mild-mannered targets like Henry Hyde or Ken Starr, while other events caused the bimbo eruption squad to swing into action to defame historical figures, pointing out that "everybody does it." More often than not, though, the playbook called for a few simple talking-point salvos aimed at the Vast Right Wing Conspiracy to do the trick.

Hitler DNA Tests Show He Likely Had Jewish, African Roots, Daily Mail Says

Adolf Hitler may have been descended from both Jews and Africans, DNA tests are indicating, the Daily Mail reported.

Journalist Jean-Paul Mulders and historian Marc Vermeeren used DNA to trace 39 of the Nazi leader’s relatives earlier this year, the Daily Mail said.

The relatives included an Austrian farmer, indentified only as a cousin named "Norbert H," the Daily Mail reported.

A chromosome called "Haplogroup E1b1b," or Y-DNA, in the relatives’ saliva samples is rare in Germany, as well as Western Europe, the newspaper said.

"It is most commonly found in the Berbers of Morocco, in Algeria, Libya and Tunisia as well as among Ashkenazi and Sephardic Jews," Vermeeren said.

Mulders told Belgian magazine Knack that "[o]ne can from this postulate that Hitler was related to people whom he despised," the Daily Mail reported.

The move was lambasted by critics, based partially on the misconception that schools would be "teaching" Ebonics rather than standard English. The actual intention was to use a particular set of strategies to bridge students from their home-language to the standardized forms required by school systems. One media consultant, at the time, referred to the press response as a "media race riot." The validity of the school board's position was argued by numerous linguists and educators.

'Ground Zero Mosque' Imam: America Killed More Innocents Than Al Qaeda - Fox News

The controversial imam at the center of the debate over the construction of a mosque near Ground Zero says his goal is to create coalitions across the religious divide, but during a 2005 conference in Australia, he said America may be worse than Al Qaeda. "We tend to forget, in the West, that the United States has more Muslim blood on its hands than Al Qaeda has on its hands of innocent non-Muslims," said Imam Fiesal Abdul Rauf...

Why are so many people in their 20s taking so long to grow up? - NDTV

It's happening all over, in all sorts of families, not just young people moving back home but also young people taking longer to reach adulthood overall. It's a development that predates the current economic doldrums, and no one knows yet what the impact will be -- on the prospects of the young men and women; on the parents on whom so many of them depend; on society, built on the expectation of an orderly progression in which kids finish school, grow up, start careers, make a family and eventually retire to live on pensions supported by the next crop of kids who finish school, grow up, start careers, make a family and on and on. The traditional cycle seems to have gone off course, as young people remain un­tethered to romantic partners or to permanent homes, going back to school for lack of better options, traveling, avoiding commitments, competing ferociously for unpaid internships or temporary (and often grueling) Teach for America jobs, forestalling the beginning of adult life.

Oh Crap...My Two Cents....

I have been watching a number of shows dealing with this topic for the past few weeks and have read a number of articles none of these shows or articles hits on the relevant point. This is a generation of the some of the most emotionally immature, intellectually vacant and just plain laziest young fucks in human history.

Working at a university and witnessing countless other examples I have never seen so many examples of young adults so ridiculously dependent on their parents, unable to master some of the simpler aspects of life and completely devoid of basic common fucking sense. (Time Mag 2005 article: The percentage of 26-year-olds living with their parents has nearly doubled since 1970, from 11% to 20%.
This is nuts! Many of these kids are being raised by parents who can’t let go. Many of these parents feel some sense of guilt so they sacrifice their own livelihood and financial stability to coddle a bunch of worthless people and unfortunately society at large will pay for the fact that these parents simply refuse to allow these kids to grow the fuck up and they will one day be cast out for us to deal with.

Older generations forced kids to take responsibility at an early age, they had chores, many had jobs at an early age, and many had the concept of saving money and not spending it on ridiculous bullshit.
For many of these young adults a basic work ethic is lacking and that can’t come from anywhere else but these idiot parents allowing them to grow up to be disrespectful dolts on the job. These young people need to be told every damn thing and even the most menial task is met with resistance.

The parents have refused to teach these kids respect. Respect not only for the parents, but for themselves and the world around them.
I drive around campus and kids will walk right in the middle of the road and dare you to hit them. You see these kids driving and texting (shit infuriates me) almost running people off the road, dumping trash on the ground with no regard for the environment around them, rude behavior, boorish and abrasive and these articles and TV segments wonder why kids are not growing up?

I posted links about the graduation rate of black males; I posted another link about how more young adults today are diagnosed as clinically depressed.
So young adults are dumber then ever before, eating more than ever before, less likely to be physically active than ever before more socially retarded than ever before… this is not rocket science.

A paragraph later in the article…

Nor do parents expect their children to grow up right away -- and they might not even want them to. Parents might regret having themselves jumped into marriage or a career and hope for more considered choices for their children. Or they might want to hold on to a reassuring connection with their children as the kids leave home. If they were "helicopter parents" -- a term that describes heavily invested parents who hover over their children, swooping down to take charge and solve problems at a moment's notice -- they might keep hovering and problem-solving long past the time when their children should be solving problems on their own. This might, in a strange way, be part of what keeps their grown children in the limbo between adolescence and adulthood. It can be hard sometimes to tease out to what extent a child doesn't quite want to grow up and to what extent a parent doesn't quite want to let go.
Whether it is out of fear or guilt or something else this hovering sort of parenting is creating a generation of useless children and young adults and the result…? This social liberalism and socialized state where a generation of these young adults advocates the state providing every damn thing for them, the very people who vote in people like Barack Obama and every other liberal Democrat.

Ok..OK I’m in a crappy mood and I just had to blame something on liberals….sue me! I'm in a slightly ranting mood today :-)

Schlock Poll: Jersey Shore Does More Harm Than Good - Legal Insurrection

I can't believe they actually polled this:
It appears a majority of New Jersey residents agree with Gov. Chris Christie: The hit MTV reality show "Jersey Shore" is doing more harm than good to the Garden State.

According to the new poll from Quinnipiac University, 54 percent of New Jersey voters say the show is bad for the state's image. It's a sentiment that reaches across party lines (Republicans agree 57 – 18 percent while Democrats agree 52 – 22 percent) and gender division (men say the show is bad for the state 51 – 25 percent and women agree 57 – 15 percent).
"I am most interested in the 46 percent who do not agree or are unsure that the show is bad for the image of New Jersey. Does that say more about the 46 percent, or more about the image of New Jersey?"
Ya think this has anything to do with why young adults are so dumb? Jersey Shore is one of the most watched shows on TV. Do you have any idea how devoid of brain cells you must have to actually watch this idiot fucking show. Idiocracy clearly at work here.

Tennessee Football Coach Says He Was Fired For Recording Anti-Obama Song - Michelle Malkin

A Tennessee middle school football coach is looking to the future after his termination for alleged political incorrectness.

Twenty-six-year-old Bryan Glover is a Christian who co-wrote a song called “When You’re Holding a Hammer, Everything Looks Like a Nail,” which takes a dig at the current administration and what he believes to be the wrong moves for the U.S. He sent a link to his song to everyone in his personal e-mail inbox, which included parents from Grassland Middle School, where he coached football.

“An hour-and-a-half after sending out the e-mail, I got the phone call from the head coach saying that he had had complaints from parents; he was told to fire me,” the former coach accounts.

He notes that he was surprised by the allegations against him.

“When the coach first called me, he said his phone was blown up with parents saying that I was being politically incorrect — quote, unquote — if you will, and that some of them were even reading into racial overtones in the song,” Glover explains.

But he points out that the lyrics make no direct or indirect reference to race.

From Hanoi Jane to Imam Obama - The American Spectator

The Ground Zero Mosque has now become the values issue of the 2010 campaign. The party of Hanoi Jane has been updated -- but, importantly, not replaced -- with the party of (as Rush Limbaugh chortles) Imam Obama.

And there's more to this than just the values issue of the Mosque. Much more.

What made the image of Hanoi Jane or the blindfolded American hostages in Iran or the Dukakis veto of the Pledge of Allegiance so powerful with voters was not simply the "values issues" each came to personify.

Each was tied directly to the economy and the economic issues of the day.

Why? Because each image communicated to voters bad judgment.

President's socialist takeover must be stopped - Washington Times

President Obama has engaged in numerous high crimes and misdemeanors. The Democratic majority in Congress is in peril as Americans reject his agenda. Yet more must be done: Mr. Obama should be impeached.

He is slowly - piece by painful piece - erecting a socialist dictatorship. We are not there - yet. But he is putting America on that dangerous path. He is undermining our constitutional system of checks and balances; subverting democratic procedures and the rule of law; presiding over a corrupt, gangster regime; and assaulting the very pillars of traditional capitalism. Like Venezuela's leftist strongman, Hugo Chavez, Mr. Obama is bent on imposing a revolution from above - one that is polarizing America along racial, political and ideological lines. Mr. Obama is the most divisive president since Richard Nixon. His policies are Balkanizing the country. It's time for him to go.

The Real Radio Hatemongers - Media Research Center
Left-Wing Radio Hosts' Track Record of Vile and Vicious Rhetoric

The so-called “news” media have spent much of the past two decades demonizing the rhetoric of conservative radio talk show hosts as mean-spirited, divisive or a menace to civil discourse. But these same journalists — who gleefully castigate Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Mark Levin and other conservatives — are silent about the vile and vicious rhetoric that spews from the Left’s leading radio talk show hosts.

Since late 2007, the Media Research Center has collected numerous examples of the outrageousness of left-wing radio hosts. And, unlike the Left — which attempted to smear Rush Limbaugh with phony quotes — readers can find an audio or video of every one of these quotes posted at our Web site: www.MRC.org.

Among the lowlights:

■ Conservatives Want to Kill Barack Obama: “I really think there are conservative broadcasters in this country who would love to see Obama taken out.” (Ed Schultz)

■ Conservatives Are Terrorists: “Do you not understand that the people you hold up as heroes bombed your goddamn country? Do you not understand that Glenn Beck and Sean Hannity and Rush Limbaugh and Bill O’Reilly are as complicit of the September 11, 2001 terror attack as any one of the dumbass 15 who came from Saudi Arabia?” (Mike Malloy)

■ Conservatives Want You to Die: “If, in fact, the GOP doesn’t like any form of health care reform, what do we do with those 40 to 60 million uninsured?...When they show up in the emergency room, just shoot ‘em! Kill them!...Do we have enough body bags? I don’t know.” (Montel Williams)

■ Conservative Congresswoman Would Have Liked the Holocaust: “[Representative Michele Bachmann is] a hatemonger. She’s the type of person that would have gladly rounded up the Jews in Germany and shipped them off to death camps....This is an evil bitch from Hell.” (Mike Malloy)

■ Dick Cheney Eats Babies: “Cheney, by the way, looks very ruddy. I couldn’t get over that. Like, he must have feasted on a Jewish baby, or a Muslim baby. He must have sent his people out to get one and bring it back so he could drink its blood.” (Mike Malloy)

■ Dick Cheney Should Die: “He is an enemy of the country, in my opinion. Dick Cheney is an enemy of the country....Lord, take him to the Promised Land, will you? See, I don’t even wish the guy goes to Hell, I just want to get him the hell out of here.” (Ed Schultz)

■ Rush Limbaugh Should Die: “I’m waiting for the day when I pick up the newspaper or click on the Internet and find that he’s choked to death on his own throat fat, or a great big wad of saliva or something, whatever. Go away, Limbaugh, you make me sick.” (Mike Malloy)

■ Michele Bachmann Should Die: “So, Michele, slit your wrist! Go ahead! I mean, you know, why not? I mean, if you want to — or, you know, do us all a better thing. Move that knife up about two feet. I mean, start right at the collarbone.” (Montel Williams)

If the establishment media were really interested in cleansing the airwaves of hateful rhetoric, they would not confine their criticism to conservative hosts. Instead, they would — and they must — make an equal effort to expose the nastiness that runs rampant on left-wing talk radio. Unless and until they do, they are participating in an act of journalistic hypocrisy.

The Professional Left, Eugene Robinson Obama's personal fluffer, Is Obama 'American Enough?

What we have is the Amateur Right: a loose amalgamation of free-roaming conservatives and libertarians who engage in political activism in their spare time - and on their own dime.

The Professional Left vs. the Amateur Right - Pajamas Media

Of all the slips of the tongue and unintentional admissions by this administration, Robert Gibbs’ “professional left” comment may well be the one they wish they could squeeze back into their collective windpipe the most:

I hear these people saying (Obama) is like George Bush. Those people ought to be drug tested. … I mean, it’s crazy. … The professional left … will be satisfied when we have Canadian health care and we’ve eliminated the Pentagon. That’s not reality. … They wouldn’t be satisfied if Dennis Kucinich was president.
That is, perhaps, the first objective analysis we’ve heard from Gibbs in his career as Obama’s press secretary — and it’s likely to be the last one. For speaking his mind, Gibbs has been urged to resign in disgrace, as if he had committed treason. We may laugh it off, and leave it at that, but the left’s ferocious attacks on Gibbs might be caused by something more sinister than a mere suggestion that on the planet of Hopeychangia, reality is a buzzkill. The latter is not a secret; neither is the fact that the truth is to the loony fringe what the cross is to the vampires. If that were Gibbs’ only transgression, he would’ve been slapped on the wrist, not kicked in the liver. So why the uproar? Why the feeling of betrayal? And just who exactly is the professional left?

When did the loudmouths of the American right become such a bunch of fraidy-cats and professional victims? Or is it all just an act?

The hysteria over plans for an innocuous Muslim community center in Lower Manhattan -- two blocks from Ground Zero, amid an urban hodgepodge of office buildings, eateries and strip clubs -- is wildly out of proportion. It would be laughable if it didn't threaten to do great harm to the global campaign against Islamic terrorism.

Is Obama 'American Enough? - WSJ

Suddenly, it's not "racist" to criticize the president.
The good news for President Obama is that this week is likely to be better for him than last week was. The bad news? Last week! A week so bad, as we observed Friday, that the president ended it by clinging to his religion as the media revived the stupid-people-think-he's-Muslim trope. This, of course, was the result of his decision at the end of the previous week to weigh in on, then run away from, the debate over the Ground Zero mosque.

All week, the professional left hurled accusations of bigotry at the two-thirds or so of Americans who take offense at the idea of a fancy new mosque near the site of the 9/11 attack. But one familiar claim was notable for its absence. Hardly anybody asserted that the growing anti-Obama sentiment was the result of racism against a black president.

Does Barack Obama want to be re-elected in 2012? Got Enough Race...? Muslims Threaten Suicide Bombings, Mega-Climate Creationist, Chickens Out On Debate, Muslim Mosqueteers


Does Barack Obama want to be re-elected in 2012? - Telegraph UK

Few Americans consider themselves bigger than the presidency but Obama might be one of them. The man in the Oval Office, argues Toby Harnden, may already be preparing for a role as a post-president in a post-American world.

When David Plouffe, President Barack Obama's 2008 campaign manager, wrote recently that his former boss was "not concerned with his re-election", there was predictable scepticism.

After all, it has long been a truism that every politician wants to cling to power and a reality that presidential campaigns are planned years in advance. Pronouncements about not looking at polls and concentrating on getting things done are, moreover, standard fare from poll-driven, election-obsessed politicians and their apparatchiks.

In this case, however, Plouffe may inadvertently be onto something. Almost everything Obama does these days suggests that he doesn't care much about being re-elected. Strange as it might seem, perhaps he wants to be a one-term president.

MUSLIMS threaten SUICIDE BOMBINGS against ‘Qur’an burning’ church in Florida - Bare Naked Islam

According to the Wall Street Journal, Terry Jones, pastor at the Dove World Outreach Center will call for Sept. 11 to be an “International Burn a Koran Day.”

However, the Gainesville fire department has denied a permit for the event.

One jihadist website vowed to conduct suicide bombings in Florida to avenge the Quran burning, while others predicted an increase in terrorist recruits as a result of such actions.

“By Allah, the wars are heated and you Americans are the ones who…enflamed it,” says one such posting. “By Allah you will be the first to taste its flames.”

Jones said the radical threats confirmed his views of Muslims. “I can understand that they would be offended. I think their reactions–violence, threats, murders terrorist attacks–that only reveals the true nature of Islam which needs to be revealed,” he said.

Mark Hemingway: Ground zero mosque was powder keg from the start - Washington Examiner

Revisiting one of the first big stories on the now controversial Islamic center near ground zero, a New York Times piece from last December titled "Muslim Prayers Fuel Spiritual Rebuilding at Ground Zero," I found myself dumbstruck. As you probably guessed from the headline, the story was a laughably sunny gloss on an issue that was obviously a powder keg from the start.

It reminded me a of a joke from last season's "30 Rock," where Alec Baldwin's character was being told that in order to protect the feelings of a co-worker, he needed to "lie to her, coddle her, protect her from the real world."

Baldwin's retort? "I get it. Treat her like the New York Times treats its readers."

In fact, the aforementioned Times article ends with a quote from Sherif El-Gamal, one of the developers behind the Cordoba mosque project. "What happened that day [9/11]," he said, "was not Islam."

Muslim Mosqueteers - Human Events

By Ted Nugent

There are no words to express the outrage Americans would have expressed if the Japanese government proposed to build a memorial to their fallen soldiers at Pearl Harbor immediately following World War II. We can only hope that President Truman would have ordered our military to fire-bomb the Japanese again for being so rude and stupid.

Slice it any way you want but the Muslim community is being tremendously rude and stupid for wanting to build a mosque so close to Ground Zero in New York City. Instead of using the $100 million for their proposed mosque, I recommend they donate the cash to the U.S. military so that we can build more smart bombs to kill more voodoo Muslim radicals. That would earn my respect and admiration.

Killing more Muslim terror punks would make the world a more peaceful place to live, and safer for more Muslims, and we all know that Islam is the religion of peace. Yeah, right.

Detailing Obama’s Endless Radicalism - Human Events

Presidential nominee Sen. Barack Obama promised a post-partisan, post-racial presidency if elected.

What voters got was a third type of “post,” one for which they clearly didn’t bargain.

The Post-American Presidency by Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer argues that Obama’s every move bespeaks a call to internationalism at the expense of his own country.

The book details Obama’s radical roots, his consistent attempts to denigrate and degrade the U.S. as a super power and his uneasy ties to anti-Semitism.

It’s an exhaustive book, one that doesn’t dither like a Commander in Chief pursuing war-time strategies. It hauls out fact after fact to state its case with little or no fat to weigh it down. Dense but easy to read, alarming and yet not alarmist with its use of the political record, the book encapsulates a President who hid his true self during the election campaign.

NY Republican Candidate: Prison Dorms For Welfare Recipients - AP News One

Republican candidate for governor Carl Paladino said he would transform some New York prisons into dormitories for welfare recipients, where they would work in state-sponsored jobs, get employment training and take lessons in “personal hygiene.”

Paladino, a wealthy Buffalo real estate developer popular with many tea party activists, is competing for the Republican nomination with former U.S. Rep. Rick Lazio. The primary is Sept. 14.

Paladino first described the idea in June at a meeting of The Journal News of White Plains and spoke about it again this week with The Associated Press.

Throughout his campaign, Paladino has criticized New York’s rich menu of social service benefits, which he says encourages illegal immigrants and needy people to live in the state. He has promised a 20 percent reduction in the state budget and a 10 percent income tax cut if elected.

Asked at the meeting how he would achieve those savings, Paladino laid out several plans that included converting underused state prisons into centers that would house welfare recipients. There, they would do work for the state – “military service, in some cases park service, in other cases public works service,” he said – while prison guards would be retrained to work as counselors.

“Instead of handing out the welfare checks, we’ll teach people how to earn their check. We’ll teach them personal hygiene … the personal things they don’t get when they come from dysfunctional homes,” Paladino said.

New York, like other states, receives a federal block grant to provide cash and other forms of welfare to very low-income residents. Federal law already requires welfare recipients to do some form of work to receive benefits.

New York’s welfare rolls have grown slightly during the recession, while food stamp eligibility has almost doubled, according to the state.

DEA wants “Black English” linguists to decipher bugged calls

AUGUST 23--The Department of Justice is seeking to hire linguists fluent in Ebonics to help monitor, translate, and transcribe the secretly recorded conversations of subjects of narcotics investigations, according to federal records.

A maximum of nine Ebonics experts will work with the Drug Enforcement Administration’s Atlanta field division, where the linguists, after obtaining a “DEA Sensitive” security clearance, will help investigators decipher the results of “telephonic monitoring of court ordered nonconsensual intercepts, consensual listening devices, and other media”

The DEA’s need for full-time linguists specializing in Ebonics is detailed in bid documents related to the agency’s mid-May issuance of a request for proposal (RFP) covering the provision of as many as 2100 linguists for the drug agency’s various field offices. Answers to the proposal were due from contractors on July 29.

In contract documents, which are excerpted here, Ebonics is listed among 114 languages for which prospective contractors must be able to provide linguists. The 114 languages are divided between “common languages” and “exotic languages.” Ebonics is listed as a “common language” spoken solely in the United States.

Percy Sutton Reveals Association Between Khalid al-Mansour and Obama



Civil rights activist Percy Sutton recalled being solicited by a man named Dr. Khalid A-Mansour to write a letter of recommendation to help Obama gain acceptance into Harvard Law in this undated television interview available HERE.

“I was introduced to him [Obama] by a friend who was raising money for him and the friends name was Dr. Khalid al Mansour from Texas,” Sutton said. “He is the principle adviser to one of the world’s richest men. He told me about Obama. He wrote to me about him and his introduction was ‘there is a young man that has applied to Harvard and I know that you have a few friends left there because you used to go up there to speak, would you please write a letter in support of him?’…I wrote a letter in support of him to my friends at Harvard saying to them I thought there was a genius that was going to be available and I sure hoped they would treat him kindly.”

There are many videos available on the internet featuring a man named Khalid Al-Mansour, who describes himself as an author, scholar and businessman, blasting the Jewish culture and Christianity and preaching the virtues of Islam, reminiscent of the controversial clips discovered of Obama’s longtime friend and former pastor Rev. Jeremiah Wright that rocked headlines earlier this spring.

In one of the videos, titled “Christians Designed Discrimination” uploaded by a YouTube user named IslamStudios, Al-Mansour said, “White people don’t feel bad, whatever you do to them, they deserve it, God wants you to do it and that’s when you cut out the nose, cut out the ears, take flesh out of their body, don’t worry because God wants you to do it.”

Muslim Is New Code For Racism - Boortz

If you will recall, during the campaign there were some rather amazing charges of racism. Let's see if we can remember a few:
  • Using the word "skinny" to refer to Obama is racist.
  • "Community organizer" is a racist term.
  • Any reference to a connection between Obama and Franklin Raines, the former head of Fannie Mae is racist ... that would be because Raines is black.
  • All references to Jeremiah Wright are racist; that being due to Wright being black.
  • Referring to Obama as "eloquent" is racist because it infers that other blacks are not eloquent.
  • For goodness' sake, don't say that Obama is "clean."
  • Calling Obama a "socialist" is also racist because "socialist" is just another code word for black.
Well who knew that we were still adding to this list? In the wake of this discussion over the Ground Zero Victory mosque, Obama faith has come into question again. One out of every five Americans believe Obama to be a Muslim. Well now, according to MSNBC, calling Barack Obama a Muslim is a backdoor way of calling him the "N-word." That's right .. even talking about Barack Obama and Islam in the same conversation is the latest way of implying that you really don't like Barack Obama because he is black.

Defending Bin Laden's violence


Demonstrating that there is a lot more to this man than merely a cleric.

Ground Zero Mosque will help Islamic relations in U.S. - Wizbang
So sez the Imam at the center of the controversy:

The imam who is behind plans to build a mosque near Ground Zero insisted yesterday that the prayer space and community center will actually improve Islamic relations in the United States.


Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, who was in Bahrain yesterday as part of a 15-day tour of the Middle East funded by the US State Department, said the intense controversy over the plan is a good thing.


"The fact we are getting this kind of attention is a sign of success," he told a gathering at the US ambassador's residence there. "It is my hope that people will understand more" of the culture.


In an interview with Bahrain's Al Wasat newspaper, he also said America's sweeping constitutional rights are more in line with Islamic principles than laws imposed by some Muslim nations.


"I see the [Declaration] of Independence as more compliant with the principles of Islam than what is available in many of the current Muslim countries," he said.
