Quote of the Day - Kim Kardashian Edition

"After careful consideration, I have decided to end my marriage.  I hope everyone understands this was not an easy decision.  I had hoped this marriage was forever, but sometimes things don't work out as planned.  We remain friends and wish each other the best."
They were only married 72 days ago.  How careful could the consideration have been?

Quote of the Day - Ann Coulter Edition

"..this isn't dropping your pants and saying kiss it."  
Ann Coulter on the allegations of Herman Cain committing acts of harassment on two women in the 90's.

Occupy Wall Street Quote of the Day Part 7

“We’ve got five bike-powered generator systems that are coming from Boston and we’ve got five more plus other ones that are going to supplement as well so we’re completely, completely off the grid"
Lauren Minis - Occupy Wall Street Protester on New York City removing the gas powered generators due to safety reasons.  

My question is are they going to ask the homeless back to ride the bikes for them?

Quote of the Day - Bill Gates Edition

"You can't raise the taxes we need just by going after that one percent, to really deal with the deficit gap we're talking about, that alone just numerically is not going to be enough." 
Bill Gates on the Buffett Rule

Quote of the Day - Douglas Holtz-Eakin Edition

The protestors of the Occupy Wall Street complain about the unfairness of the bailout, unemployment, and taxes. But to make the U.S. economy more fair, Washington needs to use the capitalist system, not to destroy it.
Douglas Holtz-Eakin, President of American Action Forum and Former Director of the Congressional Budget Office.  He is respected on both sides of the aisle.

Occupy Wall Street Photo of the Day

And yes I know it was photoshopped.  It is still funny.

Gee, Catholic University Has Religious Symbols on Campus

Who would have thunk it.  A private Catholic university has pictures of Jesus and crucifixes on campus.  Gee, what a surprise.  But apparently this appears to be a surprise to some Muslim students who feel the university is not doing enough to provide them a place to pray that doesn't have catholic symbols.  

I am a strong and fervent believer in the right to practice your faith.  People should feel free to pray in this country.  We were, in part, founded on this tradition.  These students want to pray, then have at it.  But, do they really have to attend a Catholic University?  

Catholic University is a private institution.  Therefore, it is under no obligation to take down any symbols of their faith.  Period.  End of story.  But of course some activist Muslims are trying to file a lawsuit to force the university to give them a room to pray in that doesn't contain any of the symbols of the faith that is practiced by them.  

This is about getting special treatment.  Not equal treatment, which is what our country is based upon.  If a Jewish student were to go to Catholic University the same would be true.  The same for a fundamentalist Christian, who does not believe in using the image of Christ.  If you are going to be a student of this school you must accept the traditions and the use of the symbols of which created the school.  Obviously they are not discriminating against anyone as they will accept student regardless of religious affiliation.  Although, they would be not breaking any laws if they did.  

The Constitution only guarantees that the government does not discriminate based on religion.  It has no jurisdiction for a private institution.  Private institutions are free to discriminate as they so choose.  

I have an idea, if you don't like crosses and pictures of Jesus at your college, go elsewhere.

Occupy Wall Street Quote of the Day Edition Part 6

“We need to limit the amount of food we’re putting out to curb the influx of derelicts,”
A Kitchen Volunteer at Occupy Wall Street in New York.  

I thought they were trying to help the "little" guy.  

Truly disgusting.   

Can you say hypocrisy?  They say they want a world that is fair, and gives to the needy.  But they only want to take yours, they have no desire to share their own.

A Marine Wife Stays Until the End

The night before the burial of her husband 2nd Lt. James Cathey of the United States Marine Corps, killed in Iraq, Katherine Cathey refused to leave the casket, asking to sleep next to his body for the last time. The Marines made a bed for her, tucking in the sheets below the flag. Before she fell asleep, she opened her laptop computer and played songs that reminded her of "Cat", and one of the Marines asked if she wanted them to continue standing watch as she slept.

"I think it would be kind of nice if you kept doing it" she said.

"I think that's what he would have wanted".

Rest in peace Lt. Cathey.  Thanks for your service.

Occupy Wall Street Quote of the Day Edition Part 5

“I’m super passionate about the movement, but the frustration is feeling like you’re in a war zone with barricades in front of my apartment and cops with big guns standing around, we were okay being a little uncomfortable for a couple of weeks, but after six weeks it gets to be a little much.”
Winbush, 28, said inside a Brooks Brothers store across the street from Zuccotti Park.

Marco Rubio Sets the Record Straight on his Parents Refugee Status

I heart this man.  The liberal media is going to go after him in a big way, he is a rising star in the GOP and he is a minority, something the liberal left doesn't want to tolerate.

Reason #14,965 to Home School

It seems that New York City has decided it needs to do something about the levels of sexually transmitted disease and unwanted pregnancies.  While the horse has long left that barn, in their infinite wisdom, they have decided to require sex ed to all public school students.  Students will get one semester in six or seventh grade and again at nine or tenth grade.  While I feel that it is important to talk to your children about sex and the dangers of pregnancy and STD's, it is the graphic nature of these discussions that are very objectionable.

* Kids ages 11 and 12 sort “risk cards” to rate the safety of various activities, including “intercourse using a condom and an oil-based lubricant,’’ mutual masturbation, French kissing, oral sex and anal sex
We are going to be teaching 11 year olds about anal sex?  That is considered a good idea?  While I fully understand kids are by nature curious, this is not something that a stranger should be talking to our children about.  

But, it gets better.  The high schoolers will be involved in pseudo field trips that include:
* High-school students go to stores and jot down condom brands, prices and features such as lubrication.
* Teens research a route from school to a clinic that provides birth control and STD tests, and write down its confidentiality policy.
Just what I want, my teen being ordered to shop for condoms and a good route to a clinic that will give my child birth control pills without my consent.  But I would have to say the topper is:
* Teens are referred to resources such as Columbia University’s Web site Go Ask Alice, which explores topics like “doggie-style” and other positions, “sadomasochistic sex play,” phone sex, oral sex with braces, fetishes, porn stars, vibrators and bestiality
.Today on Go Ask Alice, the topics include oral sex and non latex condoms and easing orgasms for women.  Just the things I would want my teenager daughter to learn from someone who doesn't love her or know her as well as her mom does.  The department of Ed says that they are stressing that abstinence is the only way to avoid STD's pregnancy.  That seems pretty obvious to me from the workbooks!!  A Child psychologist is concerned about the teaching methods that are going to be used:

“Kids are being told to either abstain or use condoms -- that both are responsible, healthy choices,” said child and adolescent psychiatrist Miriam Grossman, author of “You’re Teaching My Child What?”
The DOE “relies on latex,” she said.
But Grossman argues that the books minimize the dangers that pregnancy can still occur with condom use, and that viruses such as herpes and HPV live on body parts not covered by a condom.
Parents will be allowed to opt their child out on the prevention part of the course, but the part that they learn what "doggie style" is, is mandatory.  Well yee ha, ride 'em cowboy.

Quote of the Day - Al Sharpton Edition Part 4

"...just like Clarence Thomas. Is it an achievement having Clarence Thomas on the Supreme Court? I don't think so," Sharpton said, because he doesn't believe their ideas "won't help Americans, including African-Americans."

Al Sharpton, in all his racial tolerance glory, on Justice Thomas and Herman Cain.  Their sin?  They don't agree with him.

Quote of the Day - Occupy Wall Street Edition Part 5

“The other day, I took in $2,000. I kept $650 for my group, and gave the rest to Finance. Then I went to them with a request -- so many people need things, and they should not be going without basic comfort items -- and I was told to fill out paperwork. Paperwork! Are they the government now?”
Bryan Smith, 45 TV Producer from Los Angeles who is now in charge of the comfort group at OWS.  

But, but, but, I thought the government was a good thing?  Don't they want you to pay more taxes so the government can take in more money and give people comfort items?  

Honestly, do these people think their belief systems through to the logical conclusion?

The Case Against Herman Cain

I remember listening to Herman Cain speak about 18 months ago.  After his speech, he walked off the stage only to return a few seconds later and mentioned that a "dark horse" just may be running for president.  I told everyone and anyone who would listen; Herman Cain was the man to be POTUS. 

When he officially announced his candidacy, I drove all night to get to Atlanta to watch it live.  Again, I told everyone and anyone; Herman is the man.  Well, time has passed and I realize just how wrong I was. 

The majority of his appearances on Fox News Sunday have been a disaster.  At the time I was willing to give him a pass on not knowing or understanding the Palestinian desire for the right of return to agree to a two state solution.  I was thinking, I didn't understand how he didn't know what it was, but OK, it was one gaffe.  You fix it, then you move on. 

We then can move onto another gaffe of his saying he wouldn't allow a Muslim in his cabinet.  I do understand what he meant, but he certainly didn't make it clear that he was specifically referring to people who believed that bringing forms of Sharia to the United States was a good thing.  His actual statement made him sound like a bigot.  Again, you fix it and you move on. 

Then he starts talking about the mosque in Tennessee that some are opposed to building.  He stated that communities can decide for themselves if they want to allow a mosque to be built.  He even went as far as to use a liberal talking point to make his case.  During this interview with Fox News Sunday he went to say this is how he would solve problems as president.  The problem is that he never spoke to those in the community that were not opposed to building of the center.  We already have a president who surrounds himself with people who agree with him and tell him what he already believes.  Do we really want another one? 

We now can move onto this latest statements on abortion.  I personally don't vote based on the abortion issue.  But, many in the conservative base do.  For some, it is a deal breaker.  Rick Santorum made his view on Herman's statement very clear.  He either believes that life begins at conception or he doesn't.  You don't get to say it is not life if it is conceived during rape or incest but life all the rest of the time.  Life is life.  There is no other way around it. 

We also have heard that he would entertain trading Gitmo prisoners for a captured soldier like Israel sometimes does.  Really?  How many soldier's lives would be put into danger if the U.S. started to dealing with terrorists in this fashion?  Is KSM one he would trade?  This statement is so incredibly stupid, I can't even come up with the words to describe my disappointment. 

I have met Mr. Cain on several occasions.  I think he is a good man who truly has the best interests of this country at heart.  He wants to see his children and grandchildren to have the same opportunities at the American dream that he was able to have.  He is a very smart man who possess very good business skills.  But, that does not make him capable of being President of the United States.  He isn't even really capable of getting the VP nod.  There are plenty of cabinet positions that he would be very well suited for. 

The conservatives can not and should not entertain the idea of putting a man on the ticket who doesn't have the proper qualifications to do the job, especially when one of the main arguments against Obama is that he isn't up to the task.  The American people deserve  better.  We deserve a president that is capable.  Sadly, Herman Cain is not that man.

Occupy Wall Street Quote of the Day Edition Part 3

"I don't expect any violence, but I don't expect it to be easy. The eviction is just a small thing in the bigger struggle. I don't think the struggle is going to dissipate in the near future at all. You have 400 to 500 people who have lived with each other for a week and dreamed to live in another world."
Jason (declined to give last name) about the eviction notice served to the Occupy Oakland camp site. 

Conditions have become unsanitory and the occupiers are refusing to let police do their jobs and not reporting crimes.  They will be allowed to protest from 6 am to 10 pm, but no over night camping to be allowed. 

Occupy Wall Street Quote of the Day

I agree with the inclusion principle, but I believe we have to be VERY wary of certain Tea Party elements. Clearly those who are against the banksters and the Fed share a lot in common with us. However, many are deeply opposed to liberalism and socialism and view those on the left as much of an enemy, if not more so, than the banks. I believe it is the INDEPENDENT voters who should be courted. They are a lot more important in the grander scheme of things.
Eric, part of the 99%. 

Shouldn't all Americans be opposed to socialism?

Occupy Wall Street Quote of the Day Edition 2

"You cannot not have strong capital markets in this country or the country is going to go down the tubes," he said. "I think most people want change in this country but they don't want the country to go down the tubes. They don't want the country to become England."

Alec Baldwin speaking to protesters at Occupy Wall Street Today.

I don't know about England, but the don't seem to mind becoming Greece. 

I also don't think he understands the audience that he is speaking to.  Many of them do want to see America go down the tubes. 

Quote of the Day - Rick Perry Edition

"I want to make the tax code so simple that even Timothy Geithner can file his taxes on time.”

Rick Perry on his tax plan.

He may not be a good debater, but he sure can deliver a line. 

Occupy Wall Street Quote of the Day - Ah, The Irony

Apparently, they are having some theft problems at poopalooza.

“Stealing is our biggest problem at the moment,” said Nan Terrie, 18, a kitchen and legal-team volunteer from Fort Lauderdale.

“I had my Mac stolen — that was like $5,500. Every night, something else is gone. Last night, our entire [kitchen] budget for the day was stolen, so the first thing I had to do was . . . get the message out to our supporters that we needed food!”
Now, what are the chances that she paid for that $5K computer herself?  I have this feeling it was a gift from Mommy and Daddy.  She is 18 years old and doesn't seem to have a job or classes to go to.  She can spend her time at "protesting" the dirty rich. 

I can't afford to spend almost 6 grand on a computer. 

So Nan, since you can afford a computer that is that expensive and I can't, it is only "fair" that someone else in need gets it.  After all, that is what spreading the wealth is all about.  You have more than others, so you have to share.  Even if it is taken by force. 

Dumb asses.

Say it Ain't So - Senator DeMint to Endorse Mittens Romney?

Mitt Romney is the favorite to receive Sen. Jim DeMint's (R-S.C.) much-sought-after endorsement in the race for the Republican presidential nomination, according to knowledgeable GOP sources.

This coming from a report from Roll Call

I just find this so hard to believe.  DeMint is known in Tea Party circles as a man of character and principle.  He has said in the past he will take a smaller number of true conservatives over a majority of moderate republicans.  How in heavens name can he endorse Romney? 

I can see the argument that Romney is the most likely to beat Obama. But, just today a new poll has Cain ahead of Obama.  This same poll has Romney behind Obama.  The other talk is DeMint's business background gives him a special kinship with Romney, but, Cain has that as well. 

South Carolina Republicans, including DeMint and Sen. Lindsey Graham, say the state's primary is fluid and within reach for almost any of the candidates. An American Research Group survey of South Carolina GOP primary voters released last week showed Georgia businessman Herman Cain in front with 26 percent, followed closely by Romney with 25 percent. Texas Gov. Rick Perry had 15 percent and 12 percent were undecided. The lead previously belonged to Perry
I am speechless.

There is Hope for this Country Yet

College students were having none of Francis Piven's nonsense and outright lies that the Tea Party is a bunch of racists.  While I do find it very strange that she was asked to speak at Messiah College.  I don't know what they expected her to say.  Her book speaks for itself.  The destruction of The U.S. is her goal, by any means possible. 

I am sure that the left is looking at this video and wondering why college students were allowed to be so rude to speaker.  Welcome to our world.  This is what happens to conservatives routinely.

The Occupy Wall Street Protesters are showing their true colors.

I say let them protest.  The more they do, the more they show themselves for who they are really are.  The selfishness and the anti-semitism being exhibited is something that all voters in this country need to see.  This is where this country is heading if Obama gets re-elected.

Heaven Help Us if this is What is Resonating

CNN wants Erick Erickson to admit that the Wall Street Protests are starting to resonate. 

I certainly hope not:

This young man can't even articulate why his education should be free other than someone else makes more money than he does.  He has no clue that we pay some of the highest corporate tax rates in the world.  He has not idea that the top 10% of tax payers already pay 67% of the bills.  He just knows that he wants something for nothing.  Just imagine if college were free in this country.  We already have free primary education, and the drop rates in some cities is over 50%.  When something is given to you, you rarely see the value in it.  Hard work is good for you, it builds character. 

These protests have very little to do with protecting the poor, it is about greed and wanting what some else has worked for. 

He should be fighting for people like her, instead of whining about himself.

Quote of the Day - Steve Zamfotis Edition

“They expect everything, everything for free, nothing to pay,”
Steve Zamfotis, Manager of Charley's Restaurant.  Charley's is located across the street from the poopalooza that is known as Occupy Wall Street.

Gee, what a shock.

Harry Belafonte in All his Socialist Wisdom

It never occurs to people like him that one of the reasons that blacks have higher rates of unemployment is the horrid public school system, a system that he and the unions defend to the death. Without an education the chances of people lifting themselves out of poverty is very difficult.

I have a tea party acquaintance that lives in D.C.; she volunteers her time to do tutoring to under-privileged children. Once the voucher system came back, she asked one of the mothers if she wanted some help in filling out the application for the lottery. The woman told her she didn't want her son going to some white school because he wouldn't learn how to fight. This decision by this woman is now putting her young son in the position that he has barely over a 50% chance of getting a high school diploma, based on dropout rates. His chances of getting a college education is even less. How is racism to blame for this? This is a mindset. Exactly what Herman Cain is trying to change. A change that the likes of Belafonte and Sharpton want to prevent

Today is Take Your Child to a Protest Day

Today being Columbus Day and many school children around the country have the day off from school, the "organizers" of Occupy Wall Street have decided that today this is a good time for a "Kids Speak Out Day". 

"Even as banks got bailed out, American children have witnessed their parents get tossed out of their homes and lose their jobs. Public school kids have lost arts, music and physical education, now our kids can see activists take these issues to the streets in a democratic forum at Occupy Wall Street."

Lovely.  Will anyone be taking a poop on police car while they are there? 

“Most of the kids are trust-fund babies. They don’t need to be here,” said Andre, 40, an activist. “I’ve seen some making out, having sex. It doesn’t look good.”
Are they going to be doing something about that before the school kids come?  Or what about this:

Many of the newcomers to the tent city are attracted by the donated freebies: pizza, sandwiches, fruit, as well as bins of sweaters, pants, boots, even underwear. There are also handout comforters for anyone who wants 40 winks.

And with complimentary condoms on hand, a 1960s-style free love has begun to blossom. More than 400 participants spent the night Friday huddling and cuddling in Zuccotti Park.
So, the organizers of this "leaderless" protest believes that bringing young children down to witness these things are a good idea?  This is democracy in action according to them. 

Yet another reason to homeschool.

Pelosi V. Cantor on Wall Street Protesters

"I didn't hear him say anything when the Tea Party was out demonstrating, actually spitting on members of Congress right here in the Capitol. And he and his colleagues were putting signs in the windows encouraging them. But let's not get down to that."
Nancy Pelosi on Eric Cantor's statement that he was worried about the Wall Street Protesters.  So, let's see, first and foremost, the spitting never happened.  At least not in the context that Nanny would like people to believe in this statement.  The video evidence of what happened was found, quite a while ago in fact.  It was a say it don't spray it situation.  There was no intent to spit on any member of congress during any tea party.  The Tea Party was responsible for shutting down one of the offices of congress when after Speaker Pelosi's office refused to open the door, let alone speak to the protesters they ripped up paper from a copy of Obamacare.  I witnesses that event, and at the time said it was a bad idea to allow ourselves to be provoked in this manner.  But what wasn't widely reported was the fact that other members of the tea party went back into the building and help clean up the mess after the offices were re-opened. 

Here are the facts, not one person who was attending a Tea Party protest as a real member of the Tea Party has been arrested.  Now, when the left sends their agitators, they get arrested, or bite off some poot guy's finger, but no Tea Party member has been arrested.  We have never demanded to use the restrooms in private businesses even when though we are not paying customers of those businesses.  We have not taken over any park and said to hell with the people who live in that neighborhood.  When two young people walked through the crowd at the Glenn Beck rally last August wearing Obama T-shirts to provoke the crowd, they themselves said that only thing that was said to them is that they would prayed for.  Other than that, all they got was strange looks.  I am guilty of giving a strange look to them.  I couldn't understand why they were there. 

To say that there is a comparison between the Tea Party and the Wall Street protesters is ludicrous.  The Tea Party protesters bring lawn chairs and listen to speeches.  We watch over each other's things when you need to take a bathroom break, we keep an eye on each other's children, and then when the rally is over we get out our garbage bags and clean up any mess that may have been left behind.  We neatly fold our signs and put them in the nearest garbage we can find.  The place is left spotless.  We then go over and thank the police officers for giving us security so the counter protesters don't bother us. 

The Wall Street protesters do this:

I can guarantee you, you will never see this at a Tea Party protest. 
If this man is the 99%, I will proudly be part of the 1%. 

Herman Cain - Value Voters Summit

This is well worth the 18+ minutes. 

I have some reservations with Mr. Cain, but the man can give a speech.  I have seen him speak live on a few occasions and he can bring down the house, just like he did here.

He speaks without notes and no teleprompter.  It comes from the heart.  Which is why he sometimes steps in it, politicians tend to be more careful with their speech.

Quote of the Day - Al Sharpton Edition Part 2

“What [Cain] does not have the right is to rewrite history by saying that blacks were brainwashed by becoming Democrats, We went with a Party that stood up for the Civil Rights Act of ’64 and Voting Rights Act of ’65.”

Al Sharpton’s response to Herman Cain saying many blacks have been brainwashed into voting for democrats.

Al needs a history book (although it probably doesn’t mention this), more republicans then democrats voted for both of these acts. Would seem that Herman Cain may be onto something.

So, exactly who is it that is rewriting history Al?

Quote of the Day - Terry O'Neil Edition

“the kind of sexist misogynistic attack that we have very sadly come to expect from politicians whenever there is a strong woman who is capable and really dedicated to the betterment of all people.”
Terry O'Neil's, President of The National Organization (of liberal) Women, response to Scott Brown's comment on Elizabeth Warren's shot about him posing nude to pay for college.

She goes on:

“reconsider whether he should be a United States senator,” and “he should seriously consider dropping out of the race.”
Hmm, let's see here, Meg Whitman was called a "whore" by Jerry Brown's campaign and less than twenty four hours later they endorsed him. The president of the California chapter said this:

"Meg Whitman could be described as 'a political whore.' Yes, that's an accurate statement."
No, there is no bias on the part of the NOW. Seriously, just change your name to The National Organization of Liberal Women and be done with it.

Oh yeah, one more goody from NOW.

Steve Jobs in His Own Words

Steve Jobs was a visionary.  But, beyond being a visionary he was a person who understood hardship.  He failed many times, but instead of whining, complaining, and demanding from others, he picked himself up, dusted himself off and got on with it.  Not only did he revolutionize the way we live our lives today, he was inspiration to us all. 

Except for maybe the Wall Street occupiers.  They are demanding from someone else.  Steve Jobs demanded from himself.

Herman Cain on Fox News Sunday

Are We Going to Follow the Constitution or Not?

Anwar al-Awlaki is dead.  Most people will think that is a good thing.  He was a terrorist that was hell bent on doing destruction to this country and to it's citizens.  Of that there is little dispute.  The dispute comes from how he was killed.  Not the drone, but the lack of due process in the situation. 

In most cases it only the very far right and the very far left that are up in arms.  It ranges from the ACLU to Ron Paul who have spoken out against this.  Now, I have not done any research but I am sure that the likes of Cindy Sheehan is also against what happened.  I hate to be in that company regularly, but today I must join them. 

Nothing, absolutely nothing, in the constitution gives the president the right to kill an American citizen without due process.  al-Awlaki was born in this country; if I am not mistaken that makes him an American citizen, with the rights afforded to all of us. 

The Obama and Bush administrations should have started the legal process to indict him.  Neither administration bothered to do that.  The Obama administration thought about it, but it never went beyond that stage.  Why?  They had the goods on him.  There were plenty of videos of the man declaring his desire to kill Americans and commit terrorists acts against the rest of us.  There are at least incidents in this country that lead back to him; the failed Times Square bomber, the failed Christmas Day airplane bomber, and the successful Fort Hood shooter.  All of which happened under the Obama administration.  Why didn't DOJ go to court and get him declared an enemy combatant?  I would like an answer to that question.

Just consider one thing, this is one man.  The fact that he is a bad man isn't the important point.  The important point is that we, as citizens, are willingly giving up our rights as American citizens and handing the president unprecedented powers.  We are not up in arms that the American president has killed an American citizen without any due process, and we should be.

How long ago was it that as a member of the Tea Party I was called terrorist? Don't say that this doesn't matter people, it does.  The terrorists are winning if are willing to give up this much power to one person.  I say stand with the constitution and demand an answer of why this terrorist was never formally indicted.  It isn't about one man, it is about the rule of law and adherence to our founding documents. 

Here are two other sides:

My fellow blogger at Potluck Fuzzi Slippers and I are in agreement
Silverfiddle on the other hand feels it was a righteous and legal kill. 

So I am on team Fuzzi.

What say you?
