Addressing the tired line of "Blaming the poor, for being poor."

I've heard this line before and am starting to hear it again in light of the resistance by the public against the porkzilla spending bill.  This is a strawman if I have ever heard one.  I don't blame (all) the poor for being poor (many have brought it on themselves.)

First and foremost, I blame liberalism and liberal policy makers.  Let's not kid around here, the housing crisis was the final straw that broke this camel's back.  But how did the housing market get in such bad shape?  Liberalism!  We are seeing the effects and it is being reported as the problem.  Years ago, liberals dictated that banks had to give loans that they would not make money on.

Not only were these loans unprofitable, they were not going to get repayed.  It isn't just politicians that set this table.  Organizations, like ACORN, extorted banks and threatened boycotts, civil suits, protests and all the other liberal tricks if the banks did not make these bad loans.  So you take unprofitable loans, and then flat don't pay them.  The only way for the banks to control the losses is to repossess the houses.  But banks were prevented from doing this too.  The banks have no choice but to fold.

So now here we are.  There are a lot of people who do what they are supposed to do and now we are being told we have to pay for those who did not.  Do you think everyone who makes their payments are just lucky people who just fell into a pile money we didn't earn or deserve and it is all fun and games?  No!  I scrape by every month and work long hours and everything else in my power to meet my obligations.  

So don't sit there and act like you are owed something.  I had an offer to get a loan far more than I ended up getting.  I chose to get less of a loan so I could be sure to make it.

It is called personal responsibility, but I guess it is now a thing of the past.

I am no coward, on race Mr. Holder.

Attorney General Eric Holder, this week, referred to the people of the United States of America as "cowards" on issues concerning race.  He feels that we as a nation do not discuss this enough openly.  I take his meaning to mean that white people have no apologized enough (and frankly never will.)  I will admit that there are many white people who do not talk about their thoughts about race (actually culture.)  But why would any white person want to get into this discussion?  They can never be right and it is a losing battle.  If a white person engages in this discussion and expresses any opinion other than, "It's all our fault" they are immediately branded a racist.  And being branded a racist is the single worst thing you can be branded in the United States today.  Don't believe me?  Look at how much anger there was when terrorist Zawahiri referred to President Obama as "house slave."  That was just too much, it was over the top and the last staw.  This is one of the masterminds of 9/11 for crying out loud and people get that upset over him making a racial slur?!

The other problem is that the "racist" label is thrown around so much now that if you listen to certain people then everyone is a racist.  As it stands today, if you oppose ANY portion of the liberal agenda you are racist.  Period.  Don't want tax raises?  Racist.  Don't support the stimulus package?  Racist.  Don't support abortion?  Racist.  Don't want more of your tax dollars going to welfare?  Racist.  Didn't vote for Obama?  Racist.  And I could go on all day.  It's like taking a trascript of Joe McCarthy, hopped up on acid and replacing "communist" with "racist."  And everyone is afraid of having that label aimed at them.

In that respect, maybe AG Holder is right.  Too many people afraid to speak the truth out of fear they will be labeled racists.  So speak your mind, and labels be damned.  The truth is, the civil rights movement was meant to make us a classless society.  How can we be a classless society if so much emphasis is put on segregating us into demographic groups such as, I don't know... RACE?

Attorney General Holder, the way that you will know we no longer have a racial problem is when no one cares about the color of your skin, including you.

Leftie Thought Police and Race Baiters are on the march... again.

New York Post cartoonist Sean Delonas published this cartoon rich has quickly brought out the hyper-sensitive victim class and PC crowd, including race baiter in chief Al Sharpton.

The debate is still fresh, was the cartoonist referring to Obama as the monkey or wasn't he?  For those of you who don't know, President Obama did not write the stimulus bill.  Congress wrote it as a group.  The Congress, basically compiled a wish list for all of their pet projects and pork into one massive spending bill, slapped a title on it and called it stimulus.

But what if he was referring to Obama?  What then?  How about this, so what?  As long as I can remember Presidents have been constantly compared to chimps and other primates.  As a matter of fact, this is an indicator of equality.  Obama is being treated no differently than any other President.  And really, this is nothing.  Compared with what the President of the United States has to deal with on an hour by hour, minute by minute basis Obama had better have a thicker skin than his advocates or GTFO.

Let's keep in mind that the cartoon does not implicitly say that the chimp in this cartoon is Obama.  The detractors of the cartoon are just assuming that themselves.  Since they associate Obama as the only person invlolved with the stimulus bill as being comparable to a chimp doesn't that make them the racists?  Anyway, here's some of the handy work of people pulling off Bush=Chimp and even Clinton=Chimp.

I know, "but comparing white people to chimps isn't the same."  Spare me.  But I'll humor you.  Ok let's assume that this is an attack on a minority.  Let's look at how so called "progressives" handle a Democrat who does not tow the line a la Joe Lieberman.

In case you don't know comparing the black person to a chimp is the same as comparing a Jew to a rat.  Oh and WTF with the black face on Joe Lieberman?  Speaking of black face, let's have a look at what "progressives" had to say about Michael Steele.

Progressives are always the first to the gutter.  And they are the quickest to justify and excuse their own racist behavior.  I don't know about you, but I would rather be called a chimp than Hitler; and Bush took that for 8 years.

President Obama and Julio...

I ran into this today.

At first all I can say is wow. Then, "This guy is a plant."

But let's look at his message. Julio works at McDonald's (and has been for four years) and wants to either find a better job or get more pay and more benefits than he is currently getting at McDonalds. First and foremost, the trade between the President and Julio about whether Julio is getting healthcare at McDonald's is flat our false. McDonald's most certainly does offer healthcare benefits. Not only do they offer healthcare coverage, they also offer retirement, investing and profit sharing; and college assistance. Granted its not a dream job but I've seen worse.

What is at the heart of Julio's message? Here it is: I work at McDonald's, and have been for four years. There are other people out there who make more money than me and I don't like that. Mr. President I want you to either give me that high paying job I've always dreamed of or make McDonald's pay me more.

Here is my official response:

Julio, I think it is great that you are working and getting educated to improve your life. However, there is a pecking order. As you gain experience and qualifications your income will go up, provided the demand is there. That's what your income is based on. You are selling your skills to the highest bidder. The fewer people who can do your job, and the more places that need that role filled, the more your skills are worth. You can teach anyone how to push grocery carts in about 30 minutes. This job pays around $7 per hour depending on where you are. Compare that with say an electrician journeyman makes about $18 per hour. Why the difference? Because as it stands today, you cannot do an electrician's job, but he can do yours.

The day that a cart pusher or cashier makes the same as a dentist the world will be broken. And once you get your communications career rolling you will feel the same way.

Finally, here's a secret of success. Don't depend on the person in the White House to "give" you a job, opportunity or anything. I recommend that the only thing you ask of the government is to get out of your way.

Leftard Fairy Tales.

That's right. I'm about to ruin breakfast. Judith Warner has a piece in the New York Times (as if anywhere else) on how the many masses are enthralled by the glowing perfection of the Obamas. This ranges from petty envy of the, public, "perfection" of the Obama marriage to sexual fantasies about the One.

Pathetically, one laments while explaining that he was at Columbia the same time as the Obamas, "I feel like if I’d been a better person I would have gotten to know them." Still others cry out why are they so perfect and not me? Still others have recurring nightmares, apparently, where they have a chance to interact with Barack and to be inadequate to win the favor of the One.

This is akin to all of the writings we saw in the 1990s about how many women wanted to bang Bill Clinton. It is for certain that, as Rush Limbaugh so aptly pointed out, Barack Obama appears to be the ultimate empty suit or blank slate. People just make him, in their, minds whatever they want him to be. It is also stands to reason that since the left had such a primal hatred for W, HW and the Gipper that they would have an equal and opposite reaction to any moonbat that comes on the scene.

If these worshippers weren't enabling someone to cause such great damage to our nation's rights, economy and national security it would be amusing. They are on even keel with the celebrity worshippers who gaze on celebrity pictures and obssess over whether Britney Spears is pregnant in the line at the supermarket. You can expect to see more articles like in the New York Times as the focus tries to shift to how the Obamas are like "Camelot" and away from the already increase in aggressiveness of other nations, the cost of the "stimulus package" and more.

Abortion clinic kills born alive baby.

As seen here, a Florida woman was 18 and pregnant went to an abortion clinic to kill her baby.  She was given a drug to dilate her cervix and the doctor did not make it to the office in time.  Instead of an abortion Sycloria Williams gave birth to a "live" baby girl.  The owner of the clinic promptly cut the umbilical cord and tossed the baby in a bio-hazard bag and right in the trash.

Seems as if everyone is handlin this one with the kid gloves.  The local rep for NOW said "It reall disturbed me."  And young miss Williams had even give the baby a name.  Well Ms. NOW, it really disturbed you?  This is what you are about!  This is what you define as a fundamental part of being a woman, or pardon me womyn.  What difference does it make that the baby fell out of this woman before having its brains sucked out?  And Sycloria, you don't name someone that you are out to kill.  Did you think up this name before or after you went to have your baby murdered?  Why is everyone so shocked about this?

Is it because Williams actually saw the living baby before it was killed.  I guess that does make it easier to kill someone you never have to see.  I case you don't know the score, that baby was alive and I mean it was alive before Sycloria Williams set foot in that abortion mill.  Don't believe me?  Go to an OB and check out a 4-D ultrasound.  I don't know what it is about these stupid women who view their nether regions as some magical portal that grants life and turns all "unviable tissue" mass that passes through into humans with full rights.

I can't figure out if Williams is so stupid that she didn't know that her baby was a living person until she saw her die or if she is trying to milk this for cash.  Either way she's one who deserves to be in a bio-hazard bag.  The NOW folks are acting this way because they don't want what they're really about to get out.

I want you to remember though.  This is what we voted for.  This is the change.  Barack Obama opposed "born alive" legislation.  Expect more.  And everytime this or something like it happens there will be plenty of us to remind you.

Looks like loving your country, being patriotic, and helping others is the "new black"

Get your bucket ready.  Now watch this.  

Well looky there.  Looks like the beautiful people of Hollywood have found a couple new trends.  Being patriotic, loving you country, helping others?  Look at them all proud.  They remind of a small child that finds an Indian arrowhead and thinks it's something new.  They stand there and tell us how they pledge to love their country and help others and so on.

Well welcome aboard, we're glad you can make it!  But to most of us, love of country and others means more than your latest hand bag or exotic car.  For most of us, patriotism isn't a fad to engage in based on who sits in the Oval Office.  Most of us have always support our country.  The faux patriotism and love of country shown in this video is as shallow as Demi's facelift is obvious.

The truth is, this is not about love of country or patriotism.  This is about love of someone, Barack Obama.  These celebritards didn't give a damn about this country when Bush (either one) was in office, they didn't care about this country when Reagan was in office and they would not care if it were John McCain in the White House instead of Barack.

They preach about the country and "others" but they tip their hand at the end when they pledge to be a servant to Barack Obama.  The truth is that if they did not have feelings of patriotism, caring for others, and sacrifice before, they don't have them now.  These feelings are likely to prove fleeting.

But hey, if those celebrities are really all about love of country and helping, then good.  Glad to see you could finally make it, but we got started without you.  No offense.
