One Way To Cut The Deficit

I hereby suggest that we abolish the Defense Department completely.

And plant zucchini

FRENCHTOWN, MT — A Montana woman fended off a charging bear on her back porch early Thursday by using the first weapon she could reach — a piece of zucchini.

How To Insult 300 Million Customers

Yeah, I know Blockbuster just went Chapter 11 today, but the Netflix CEO can kiss my ass in Macy’s window

THR: American services when they enter the Canadian market typically charge the locals more than they charge stateside. Why the discount for Canadians?

Hastings: We want to provide an incredible value for Canadians, and it’s the lowest price we have anywhere in the world for unlimited screenings. And anyone can try it for free for a month. It’s pretty addictive.

THR: Are you concerned that American Netflix subscribers will look north and ask for the same discount Canadians get at $7.99?

Hastings: How much has it been your experience that Americans follow what happens in the world? It’s something we’ll monitor, but Americans are somewhat self-absorbed.


WHOA! Slick Writing There, Fella!

…Because when you get past the adjectives and soaring language, the talk of inalienable rights and constitutional guarantees, you’re left with a set of hard promises that will increase the deficit by trillions of dollars, take health-care insurance away from tens of millions of people, create a level of policy uncertainty businesses have never previously known, and suck demand out of an economy that’s already got too little of it.

Welcome to an Ezra Klein headfake! He just took ALL the complaints about Obama, scratched out the name and scrawled in “GOP’s Pledge to America”.

Obama Administration Is ‘Anti-Business’: Jack Welch

…President Barack Obama’s administration has an “anti-business” bias which manifests itself through intimidation, trade, taxes and regulation, Welch also said.

…”We have a culture that says ‘I want to make a lot of money, I want to make good with my money‘… that’s a hero, not a bum,” Welch explained.

Sacre bleu. Who would have ever thought we’d get to a point in this country where you’d actually have to explain that?

VOTE, people.

It’s our only HOPE.


Aw heck, it’s just too easy

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – New claims for unemployment benefits rose unexpectedly last week, government data showed on Thursday, highlighting continued labor market weakness.

Initial claims for state unemployment benefits increased 12,000 to a seasonally adjusted 465,000, the Labor Department said, breaking two straight weeks of declines.

Analysts polled by Reuters had forecast claims unchanged at 450,000. The government revised the prior week’s figure up to 453,000.

“Did I Vote For Him? Yes”

Er, and by “yes” of course what Andrew Cuomo really meant was “no”

But for all his actions as the state’s chief law enforcement officer, Cuomo did have a little problem with telling the truth about his election box support for Mayor Bloomberg.

“Have I voted for the mayor? Yes,” Cuomo said.

Actually, he didn’t. The Cuomo campaign had to issue a clarification, saying he was only registered to vote in New York City in 2005 when he endorsed Democrat Fernando Ferrer.

A “lie” is only a LIE if someone other than a Democrat says it, I guess.

Facebook While You Drive

That’s your smarter Government Motors, folks

DETROIT — General Motors’ OnStar telecommunications service plans to expand from a safety and security feature into a system that also includes entertainment features and will provide new ways to link drivers to their cars.

Details — including an introduction date and fees — are being finalized, but the new-generation OnStar should allow drivers to do such things as update Facebook status and listen to text messages read aloud while driving.

What could possibly go wrong?

It’s actually a brilliant idea: it lets dumb-asses concentrate on their Facebook accounts instead of, say, their driving. They then have an accident and need to use the OnStar emergency system!

Their Theoretical Core Discovered

Alberto at Babalu has discovered the core philosophy at work in the current administration

One of my favorite episodes of South Park is the Underpants Gnomes episode that aired in the late 1990s. The storyline included gnomes that would sneak into the rooms of the boys in the middle of the night and steal their underpants. One night, they followed the gnomes to an underground factory that processed the stolen underwear and asked them what they were doing with all the underpants.

…When the South Park kids asked them to explain the missing step between collecting the underpants and realizing a profit, the gnomes were dumbfounded. All they could answer was that they collect underpants, and then they profit.

It certainly covers their Cuba policy…and all of their economic plans for us as well.

And it also explains where Paul Krugman comes from.

When even the Russians are cutting government…

Russia plans to slash 100,000 bureaucrat jobs by 2013, Finance Minister Alexei Kudrin said on Monday, in a drive to reduce costs and modernize the country’s bloated bureaucracy.

Says a lot about the state of DC these days.

Honesty In Government About Who You Really Work For

Freedom and Liberty issues aside, what could possibly go wrong with this?

The UK’s tax collection agency is putting forth a proposal that all employers send employee paychecks to the government, after which the government would deduct what it deems as the appropriate tax and pay the employees by bank transfer.

The proposal by Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs (HMRC) stresses the need for employers to provide real-time information to the government so that it can monitor all payments and make a better assessment of whether the correct tax is being paid.

Sweet mother of God.

Run Away!

That seems to be the mantra of certain folks this year, isn’t it?

For example, just peruse through the website of my Congressman.

Notice anything missing from his site?
He doesn’t mention his Party.
He doesn’t mention his Speaker.
He doesn’t mention his President.
He doesn’t mention this.
He doesn’t mention this.
He doesn’t mention this.
He doesn’t mention this.

Rush has been a “good” Representative for our District, in the sense that he’s brought home lots of pork and has got a great staff to arrange tours of the Capitol.

But those days are over. We can no longer afford someone who has voted to expand government at every single opportunity.

It’s time for Rush to go.

It’s time for a change.

Are things looking so bad for the Dems…..

that the Obamas went to church? I’m sure Barry brought a mirror so he could focus in worship……..

Police Horrors

The days of the police rushing to your defense may sadly be gone. Now, after many years of very expensive SWAT-ization that we were told was needed because of all these scary assault rifles that criminals were getting, we have had several horrible instances where the police are seemingly more concerned with their organization and setting up perimeters and all the neat stuff like that they learned at SWAT Camp than actually stopping the bad guys

Podunk local cops wasted more than half an hour assessing the Connecticut home invasion and setting up a vehicle perimeter — time the two attackers used to strangle the mother in her living room and set the fire that claimed the lives of the two girls upstairs, according to shocking testimony today.

The revelation — which suggests perhaps the family could have been saved but for police bungling — came on day three of testimony in the murder trial of crack addict Steven Hayes, charged as one of the two monsters who launched a rein of rape and murder against a Cheshire, CT family on a Monday morning in July, 2007.

I simply can not fathom the horror that that poor family went through, and the father’s life of horror ahead as he relives what might have been avoided had the police acted instead of planned.

This has been troubling me a lot since the shootings at Virginia Tech, where on the YouTube videos you see the police behind their cars talking on the radios and “organizing” while you can clearly hear shots being fired in the building. How many lives might have been saved had they moved in earlier to take the bastard out?

Look, I fully recognize that it’s very easy to sit here and armchair quarterback the police in these cases, and I know they’ve got one hell of a tough job, never knowing when the door they knock on may have some nut with a knife or a shotgun behind it. I know that. I get it.

But the fact remains that the police are authorized to use deadly force to protect people in danger, and they are given great latitude when they do so.
