Nanny Nazis Regulate the Holes in Salt Shakers

Posted by Dave Blount at 9:05 AM


Don't let the man keep you down. Play online gaming blackjack using the blackjack cheat sheet from, and win big with all the black jack secrets. Or if blackjack's not for you, try out casino game craps at the best craps gambling spot in town!

Nothing could be too small to escape the notice of Britain's totalitarian Nanny State — not even the holes in a salt shaker:

Pot-holed roads, crumbling schools, litter-strewn streets — there's no shortage of problem areas crying out for their attention. But councils believe they have found a better use for their money: reducing the number of holes in chip shop salt shakers. Research has suggested that slashing the holes from the traditional 17 to five could cut the amount people sprinkle on their food by more than half. And so at least six councils have ordered five-hole shakers — at taxpayers' expense — and begun giving them away to chip shops and takeaways in their areas.

Salt — an essential nutrient, without which many foods don't taste very good — is on the rapidly expanding list of substances bureaucrats have decided we need to be protected against.

Unfortunately, people have been seen unscrewing the lids of the five-hole shakers to get at the salt inside. Clearly legislation is required to prevent this. Alternatively, they might try non-opening shakers with no holes and no salt.

AP Discovers the Benefits of Drilling

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:45 AM

According to the endlessly repeated Democrat talking points, it would be useless to drill in the ANWR wasteland, off the coasts, or anywhere else environmentalist extremists have forbidden it, because it would take years and years to get the oil out, and it would only lower prices by a few pennies anyway. But wait, what's this from liberal AP:

Khurais Oil Field, Saudi Arabia — This massive oil field surrounded by the desolate sands of Saudi Arabia's vast eastern desert feels like the middle of nowhere. But what happens over the next year at Khurais, one of Saudi Arabia's last undeveloped giant oil fields, could hold the key to what drivers will pay at the pump for years to come. […] The project forms the centerpiece of the Saudi plan to increase the total amount of oil it can produce to 12.5 million barrels per day by the end of 2009 — up from a little more than 11 million barrels per day now.

It seems that oil can be extracted from the ground in less than a decade, and that increased supply really will lower prices, just like we learned in Economics 101 — but only if it's someone else's oil.

Here's an idea: why don't we give Alaska back to the Russians? Then they could drill the oil, and we could buy it from them. Cuba and China are already helping themselves to the neglected oil fields off the Florida coast.

Even Gray Lady Admits Downside to Mugabe

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:07 AM

Robert Mugabe personifies the future liberals have planned for us. He took the "Breadbasket of Africa" and turned it into a squalid, totalitarian hellhole with his race-based socialist ideology in the name of sticking it to Whitey on behalf of the historically oppressed. But even moonbats who deify his socialist colleague Nelson Mandela have a hard time excusing Mugabe's savage excesses. The New York Times' Nicholas Kristof has been forced to admit the obvious: Africa was much better off before it was supposedly liberated.

Being a moonbat, Kristof can't help but bleat piteously about white racism. He condemns Britain for the "tribalism" of not liking it when white farmers — mostly descendants of Britons — are beaten and killed so that their land can be stolen and then left to lie fallow. But even Kristof was forced to cough this up:

When I grew up in the 1970s, a central truth was that Ian Smith was evil and Mugabe heroic. So it was jolting on my last visit to Zimbabwe, in 2005, to see how many Zimbabweans looked back on oppressive white rule with nostalgia. They offered a refrain: "Back then, at least parents could feed their children."

One day American parents holding their starving babies in their arms may say: Yes, capitalists were racist demons with horns growing out of their heads, just like they teach at school. But there used to be food.

Mugabe could scare sense even into moonbats.

Obama Tool Wesley Clark Attacks McCain's Experience

Posted by Dave Blount at 7:11 AM

Here's a criticism I thought I'd never hear from an Obama supporter. Creepy ex-General and BHO stooge Wesley Clark says that war hero, former squadron commander, two-term Congressman, and four-term Senator John McCain would make a lousy President because of his lack of experience.

Sniffs Clark:

I don't think riding in a fighter plane and getting shot down is a qualification to be president.

Obama's most notable experiences consist of getting really stoned a lot in college, which he brags about like the teenager he still mentally is in his excruciatingly revealing Dreams from My Father. BHO has no serious qualifications at all, a fact that the bumbling Clark apparently believes he can obscure by attacking McCain's decades of relevant experience.

After denouncing his thin resume, next Clark et al. can go after McCain for spending 20 years in the pews of an anti-American church of race hate, for hanging around with unrepentant terrorists who bombed the Pentagon, for being an insufferable snob, for being married to a nasty little America-hating piranha, for advocating surrender to the terrorists we have on the ropes in Iraq, for not being able to decide whether Iran is a threat, for promising to suck up to hostile dictators, for being likely to subordinate our national interests to the execrable United Nations, for wanting to destroy our healthcare system with socialism, for intending to gut the military, for being likely to appoint left-wing extremists as judges, for promising to jack taxes through the ceiling, for having the most liberal voting record in the entire Senate, for being incapable of speaking publicly without a teleprompter, for hanging out with sleaze bucket Tony Rezko, for being a compulsive liar, for having a campaign that draws anti-Semites and 9/11 conspiracy kooks, for suggesting previous administrations should be imprisoned, for standing ready to deflect legitimate criticism with the trusty race card, for being pushed by the vile and fanatical mainstream media, et cetera.

The nice thing about projection is it gives liberals lots of rocks to throw.

BHO isn't getting any wiser about choosing his company.

Google Shuts Down Anti-Obama Blogs

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:45 PM

The leftists at Google help the communist Chinese censor their opposition, so it should come as no surprise that they appear to be doing the same for Obama.

Among Google's many Internet tentacles is Blogger, which allows people with no technical knowledge to set up blogs for free. But of course, nothing is really free — the price you pay to use Blogger is subjecting yourself to Google's control.

NewsBusters reports that at least seven blogs belonging to the anti-Obamination Just Say No Deal coalition have had their plugs temporarily pulled by Google:

Supposedly, they were suspected of being "spam" blogs. Even Google's authoritarian soul mates behind the bamboo curtain would be ashamed to use such a lame excuse to harass opponents.

It seems most of the targeted blogs are not conservative, but pro-Shrillary. Something tells me the honeymoon Shrillary and the Obamessiah have been staging for the media is going to end in an ugly divorce.

After this passionate air kiss, they both probably rinsed with Listerine.

What's in a Name?

Posted by Dave Blount at 10:41 AM

Some say the Obamessiah has no qualifications to be President. But from the point of view of moonbats, he actually has three: 1) he is a left-wing extremist who has spent his life surrounded by fanatics who hate America and everything it stands for; 2) he's mulatto; 3) his name recalls America's two worst enemies over the last decade, Osama bin Laden and Saddam Hussein.

No, Obama's name doesn't mean he's still a Muslim. But out of all the unqualified left-wing mulattoes out there, why did liberals settle on him? Because they like his name. If this were 60 years ago, they'd fall in line behind someone named Tojo Hidler.

Don't believe me? Here's some evidence:

Barack Obama's middle name Hussein has been used in some corners as a rallying cry to cast false aspersions against him, but in a growing movement, some of his supporters are adopting his middle name as a show of solidarity with the candidate. […]
"My name is such a vanilla, white-girl American name," Ashley Holmes of Indianapolis told the [New York Times]. She said she changed her name online "to show how little meaning 'Hussein' really has."

Ashley actually shows how much meaning "Hussein" really has. She doesn't like her own name because it's American. The name Hussein appeals to her because it represents the other — i.e., the enemy. This is Obama's appeal in a nutshell.

Does anyone think he'd have gotten this far if his name were Leroy Jackson?

Moonbats Turn Kindergartener into Transgender Freakazoid

Posted by Dave Blount at 1:37 PM

Frankenstein's monster was downright wholesome next to what social engineering has wrought:


As V the K notes, this 6-year-old experiment, who despite appearances is actually a boy, is the perfect liberal child — "feminized, confused, living in denial of reality, and demanding that society cater to it."

The depraved propagandists at ABC News are delighted with this bold leap forward into our progressive future, dutifully calling little Jazz Jennings "her" and bleating about how wonderful it is that "she" has been turned into a walking billboard for liberal perversion, so that the "transgender children" lefties have invented will no longer have to "live in the shadows."

Jazz's moonbat mommy explains how she raises her son:

We'll say things like, "You're special. God made you special." Because there aren't very many little girls out there that have a penis.

The poor kid is only in kindergarten and they've already made him into a freak. It won't be long before they start with the permanently disfiguring hormone therapy.

Amnesty International Hits Bottom with Phony Gitmo Display

Posted by Dave Blount at 9:59 AM

Amnesty International used to be on the side of the good guys, drawing attention to the horrors inflicted by America's authoritarian enemies. Now, it is a shill for those same enemies, and its farcical tactics are worthy of the most juvenile left-wing extremists. The group that once defended liberty has reduced itself to touring the country with a phony replica of a Club Gitmo maximum security cell, as part of its campaign to discredit America and whip up support for the Muslim terrorists attempting to bring about a worldwide totalitarian caliphate.

The display cell is 7' X 8'; in terms of square feet, the real ones are nearly four times as large at 10' X 20'. Needless to say, the many amenities that are obsequiously provided to the homicidal vermin at Gitmo are left out of the display. No trace can be seen of the darling terrorists' bedding or toiletries, the free prayer rug and Koran, the three gourmet meals they get every day, the soccer games, the chess, the checkers, the cards, the personal lockers for belongings, et cetera.

You do get to see the orange jumpsuits though, just like at the adolescent spectacles arranged by the communist group World Can't Wait.

Amnesty International has now sunk to this level.

Liberal Congressman Roots for Al Qaeda to Kill American Official

Posted by Dave Blount at 9:14 AM

Hugo Chavez's buddy William Delahunt is spinning like a dervish after wishing publicly that Cheney aide David Addington would be identified by al Qaeda and presumably killed.

From The Politico yesterday:

One of the most curious exchanges in today's testy hearing in the House Judiciary Committee was this exchange between Rep. Wiliam Delanhunt [sic] (D-Mass.) and David Addington, chief of staff to Vice President Cheney.
Addington had acknowledged earlier in the hearing that he took part in discussions with CIA lawyers over the agency's interrogation policies. Delahunt tried to find out what Addington knew about the use of waterboarding on suspected Al Qaeda terrorists, or more specifically, whether Addington knew it was approved as an interrogation technique.
Addington told Delahunt he couldn't discuss specific techniques being used, or even discussed for use, by CIA agents because terrorists may be watching his appearance and would gain insight into what U.S. intelligence agents are up to.
"You kind of communicate with Al Qaeda if you do. I can't talk to you because Al Qaeda may watch C-SPAN," Addington said.
Delahunt responded: "I'm sure they are watching. I'm glad they finally have a chance to see you, Mr. Addington, given your penchant for being unobtrusive."

Addington responded sarcastically, "Yeah, I'm sure you're pleased." Clearly he took Delahunt's comment to mean that the liberal Congressman wanted him rubbed out by terrorists. But no, no, not at all:

Delahunt said he was just trying to express that he was glad to see Addington. Delahunt said he recalls saying "I," not "they," during the testimony — though the video, broadcast on C-SPAN, shows he was talking about Al Qaeda.

Good thing liberals have such dominance over the media. Otherwise the existence of video would be a real problem for them.

Mike Klonsky Joins the Crowd under Obama's Bus

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:14 AM

Another militant kook has joined the crowd under Obama's bus. Gateway Pundit reports:

Mike Klonsky, the Maoist Hardliner, Obama supporter and former best friend of the Weatherman terrorist group founders William Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn, received a $175,000 grant from the William Ayers/Barack Obama-led Annenberg Challenge to run the Small Schools Workshop.
Klonsky belonged to the Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) and was best friends with William Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn who later became famous for their acts of terrorism when the SDS broke up and the Weathermen terror group was formed.
Between 1979 and 1981, Communist Party (Marxist-Leninist) (CPML) chairman and Obama supporter Mike Klonsky was repeatedly feted with state-dinner-level visits to Beijing.

Unsurprisingly, Klonsky was such a big supporter of Obama, he had a community blog on BHO's official website — until the other day, when he was airbrushed out of existence, just like a disfavored party member in the late and lamented (by moonbats) Soviet Union.

No doubt Klonsky was not the Maoist maniac Obama knew. As history aficionados may recall, Mao managed to kill more of his own people than any other tyrant in human history. But 77 million deaths is just a statistic — the real crime is that if fellow travelers like Klonsky don't stay in the closet, they could stand in the way of the Obamessiah taking power. So under the bus he goes, to join Jeremiah Wright, Tony Rezko, Trinity United, the New Black Panthers, Detroit area Muslims, BHO's white granny, et al.

The Jawa Report is right; Obama needs a bigger bus. Here it comes now:

Airstrip One Bans Winning at Soccer

Posted by Dave Blount at 7:14 AM

Moms love to send their tykes out to play soccer because it's so harmless. The kids run around on the grass kicking at a ball until they run out of gas without any danger of getting beaned with a baseball or bruising their knees on a basketball court. But not even soccer is safe enough for the Nanny Nazis running Airstrip One, because it leaves children at the mercy of the "pressure of winning." Consequently, competitive leagues have been banned:

Under-eight teams will be stopped from taking part in knockout tournaments where cups and medals can be won, and no results will be publicised for any matches.
Junior teams across Britain will have to adopt the new policy from the start of the 2008/9 season in September.
It means that managers will no longer be able to publish the under-eight league results, tables and cup competition score lines in the local paper, or pin them up on notice boards in the clubhouse.

One day these kids will grow up to apply liberal politics to sports, so that if one team scores three goals and the other scores one, the points are redistributed for a final score of 2-2. Interest in sports will curl up and die, and competitiveness will be behind us at last. People will get less exercise, but the State stands ready to keep everyone in shape with ever more stringent dietary restrictions.

Founding Father of Canada's Socialized Medicine Rejects the Monster He Helped Create

Posted by Dave Blount at 10:01 AM

If we follow Canada over the edge and into the abyss of socialized medicine, it won't be because we weren't warned of the consequences:

Back in the 1960s, [Claude] Castonguay chaired a Canadian government committee studying health reform and recommended that his home province of Quebec — then the largest and most affluent in the country — adopt government-administered health care, covering all citizens through tax levies.
The government followed his advice, leading to his modern-day moniker: "the father of Quebec medicare." Even this title seems modest; Castonguay's work triggered a domino effect across the country, until eventually his ideas were implemented from coast to coast.
Four decades later, as the chairman of a government committee reviewing Quebec health care this year, Castonguay concluded that the system is in "crisis."
"We thought we could resolve the system's problems by rationing services or injecting massive amounts of new money into it," says Castonguay. But now he prescribes a radical overhaul: "We are proposing to give a greater role to the private sector so that people can exercise freedom of choice."

Castonguay has been forced to reverse his views because authoritarianism has made such a mess of healthcare in Canada, people enter lotteries to win a doctor's appointment. Fortunately Canadians are still able to cross the border to a free country, where all you have to do to get medical attention is be willing to pay for it. But if Democrats have their way, that won't be the case for much longer.

Freedom works. Socialism doesn't work. Yet socialism means more power for the authorities, so we will have to keep fighting it off, no matter how many times it has been exposed as fundamentally dysfunctional.

Obama or Die, Obama or Die, Obama or Die

Posted by Dave Blount at 9:23 AM

The unhinged cult known as Obama Nation keeps getting scarier:

Barack Obama didn't attend the BET Awards, but that didn't stop attendees from talking about him.
"If we all register and vote, we will have the first black president in the history of America," Sean "Diddy" Combs told the crowd Tuesday at the Shrine Auditorium before chanting "Obama or Die"…

BET recently picked black Nazi Louis Farrakhan as Person of the Year. It has publicly granted awards for beating up white people. But don't hold your breath waiting for Obama to throw it under the bus with Reverend Wrong, Tony Rezko, et al. Violent hatred of Caucasians is rapidly becoming mainstream.

Militant racist Alicia Keys, who holds that Whitey brought about the death of lowlife criminal Tupac Shakur "to stop another great black leader from existing," was also on hand at Tuesday's event:

"Together we can do anything," she said, playing on the Democrat's "Yes We Can" mantra before shouting: "Obama y'all!"

This gives an idea of how pathological Obamania has become:

One attendee used fashion to show her support for Obama. Actress-comedian Kym Whitley, who revealed she'll be appearing in a small role in the upcoming "Transformers" sequel, donned a tight purple shirt that read 'Barack Obama 08' in glittery black letters.
"I don't know him, and he doesn't know me," she said. "But we're gonna make eye contact one day."

At that point, her vacuous life will become fulfilled.

At least the devotion of the depraved entertainment community will help dissuade the handful of sane people who might otherwise be misled into voting for BHO. Unfortunately, moonbattery has progressed to the point that sane people no longer seem to constitute a majority.

Madhouse Madison Considers Ban on Drive-Through Windows

Madison, Wisconsin — which competes with Ann Arbor for the title of the Berkeley of the Midwest — has solved both high gas prices and the imaginary global warming crisis in a single blow: by proposing a ban on drive-through windows.

Given the concern about all the carbon going into the atmosphere, I'm not sure we should be building more places for people to sit idling in their cars.

Obama's True Faith: Hanumanism

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:24 AM

At last we know the truth about the Obamessiah's religion. He's not a Muslim (anymore), certainly not a Christian, and not even a true follower of the sociopathic cult called Black Liberation Theology. Apparently BHO worships Lord Hanuman, the Hindu monkey god.

NEW DELHI: Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama can now expect help from an unexpected quarter — Lord Hanuman.
All-India Congress Committee member Brij Mohan Bhama has organised a 11-day religious ceremony at Karol Bagh here for his success in the U.S. elections.
The idea of sending an idol of Hanuman dawned on him after friends in the United States mentioned a "prominent American politician who carried a miniature Hanuman idol in his pocket for luck," Mr. Bhama said speaking on the first day of the ceremony on Tuesday. […]
"We will ensure that Mr. Obama receives the idol by August 24, a day before the Democratic National Convention in Denver, Colorado," said Mr. Bhama.

Yet Obama's supporters get bent out of shape when anyone mentions his resemblance to another famous monkey, Curious George. Good thing Obama looks more like Curious George than Hanuman:

Dems Force Intelligence Agencies to Waste Time on Global Warming Farce

Posted by Dave Blount at 7:00 AM

The next time Muslims launch a major terror attack, people will inevitably ask again, why didn't the intelligence community connect the dots? The answer: because they were too busy defending Americans against their own breath.

CO2 is a harmless gas produced by all human activities, including breathing, that is highly beneficial to plant life. It's been found that when our perpetually changing climate warms, there follows a rise in CO2 levels, because the warmth allows for more life, which creates more CO2. Yet liberal ideology dictates that CO2 is bad, so our intelligence agencies have been tasked with investigating the imaginary global warming crisis it has supposedly caused. From yesterday's The Corner:

This morning, the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence and the House Permanent Select Committee on Energy Independence and Global Warming held a joint hearing on a "National Intelligence Assessment" on global climate change. This analysis was ordered by the Democratic Congress last year and was issued a few weeks ago. […]
In response to a question by Global Warming Committee member Greg Walden (R-OR), the Intelligence Community admitted they had "low to medium confidence" in the accuracy of this estimate because intelligence officers lack the expertise to write such an estimate (it was mostly contracted out to other organizations) and climate change science is so uncertain. […]
Intelligence Committee Ranking Member Peter Hoekstra asked what intelligence was used for this estimate and whether intelligence collection requirements were prepared. National Intelligence Council Chairman Thomas Fingar said no clandestine intelligence was used and that intelligence officers extrapolated what would happen if the "mid-level estimates" by the UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change were correct. When Hoekstra asked why the U.S. Intelligence Community would write a major analysis of low to medium confidence that contained no intelligence, Fingar answered, "because you [Congress] told us to."

There you have it — the Democrat conception of national security. Meanwhile, liberals' al Qaeda beneficiaries are busily figuring out how to turn Manhattan into a mushroom cloud.

Mexican Army Invades Phoenix

Posted by Dave Blount at 9:07 PM

Now can we start defending the border?

Police reports show that three men arrested in a Phoenix home invasion and homicide Monday may have been active members of the Mexican Army.
While on the J.D. Hayworth show, Phoenix Law Enforcement Association President Mark Spencer said that the men involved were hired by drug cartels to perform home invasions and assassinations.
The Monday morning incident at 8329 W. Cypress St. resulted in the death of the homeowner. Between 50 and 100 rounds were fired at the house.
Spencer said a police officer told him that one of the men captured said they were completely prepared to ambush Phoenix police, but ran out of ammunition.
He added that all were all dressed in military tactical gear and were armed with AR-15 assault rifles. Three other men involved in the invasion escaped.

Yet there is still no chance whatsoever that this president or our next one will establish control over the border with Mexico.

Whether these particular goons are active duty Mexican Army or not, they've helped make it obvious that the bloated obscenity metastasizing in Washington is not a legitimate government, since it willfully neglects a government's most fundamental duty: to protect its citizens and territory from foreign aggression. It is a gang of vampires that feeds on our money and our votes, nothing more.

Eco-Missionaries Subject Third World to Moonbattery

Posted by Dave Blount at 9:22 AM

Having decided that it would be hurtful to Gaia for the Third World to rise up out of poverty, condescending eco-missionaries have taken their moonbattery on the road to places like Haiti, where the picturesque peasants are expected to generate electricity in an Earth-friendly manner: by pedal-powered generator.

Green Tech Blog gleefully reports

Dissigno works to build businesses with nonprofit groups and communities in Haiti, India, and Tanzania. In Haiti, the company set up a system so that people can rent portable LED lights, which are recharged by plugging into a generator powered by a bicycle-like device, for $2 per month. Kerosene lamp refills, by contrast, cost around $3.50 per month. Six hours of pedaling charges the 12-volt battery. Each 1.5-watt LED light running several hours every night should last a month.

As BelchSpeak points out, that means pedaling 6 hours for $1.50. This comes to 25¢ per hour. No sooner do green collar jobs start to materialize than they are outsourced.

Based in San Francisco, Dissigno is backed by World Bank funding. Capitalism provides wealth where it can be used to create more wealth. International organizations provide wealth were it can be flushed down the toilet in the name of moonbattery.

Nanny State to Confiscate Children's Incorrect Meals

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:36 AM

Britain's totalitarian Nanny State has found a new menace against which to defend its subjects: the lunches parents pack in their kids' lunchboxes.

Under the Government's obesity strategy, all schools will be expected to design a "healthy lunchbox policy" on what makes a nutritional packed lunch over the next year.
Some parents may even be asked to sign a form agreeing to ban unhealthy foods from their children's lunches.
If a packed lunch is deemed to contain too much fat and sugar, parents could be sent warning letters or their children's meals confiscated.

No aspect of human existence will escape bureaucratic supervision and regulation. But anything having to do with children takes special priority, because the State must usurp the role of parents before it can attain the progressive dream of destroying the family, which threatens its absolute hegemony. This is why the government uses your money to pay women to have children out of wedlock.

Hold on, you two. First your lunch has to pass inspection.

Dems Attempt to Greenwash Convention

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:04 AM

The Dem convention is still two months away, but moonbat insanity is already choking Denver. Mayor John Hickenlooper has declared that it must be "the greenest convention in the history of the planet" — meaning that every detail must conform to absurd environmentalist ideology.

Greenwashing a moonbatfest of this size entails challenges. Many souvenir goodies will be passed out, and all must be of sound ideological pedigree. Fanny packs and baseball caps that are made of "organic cotton" (as opposed to inorganic cotton) by union labor in the USA are not easy to come by.

Convention organizers have actually hired someone with the title Director of Greening. Her responsibilities include trying to get allegedly biodegradable balloons to decompose by burying them in a compost heap. Under the Director of Greenwashing serves the Official Carbon Adviser, who measures the greenhouse gas emissions of placards, appetizers, and coffee cups.

The good news is that green collar jobs — which Dems have promised in compensation for the millions of jobs that will be lost when they strangulate the economy in the name of the global warming hoax — have actually begun to appear:

Decked out in green shirts, 900 volunteers will hover at waste-disposal stations to make sure delegates put each scrap of trash in the proper bin. Lest a fork slip into the wrong container unnoticed, volunteers will paw through every bag before it is hauled away.

In addition to providing a substitute for useful employment, Dems have also replaced the love of country they hold in such low esteem. According to Hickenloopy, environmentalist tomfoolery is "the new patriotism."

Dem State Rep. Gets Nasty in Defense of Child Rapists

Posted by Dave Blount at 6:37 AM

Liberals might not have the belly for resisting Islamic maniacs, but they sure aren't taking any guff from 6-year-old rape victims. Democrat Massachusetts State Rep. James Fagan doesn't like Jessica's Law, because it calls for mandatory sentences for child rapists, which New England is notorious for letting off with wrist slaps. His bizarre justification is that harsh punishments for rapists would force his fellow lawyers to be extra mean to their victims.

Fagan makes his case, via The Next Right:

It's so wrong because in these situations … that 6-year-old is going to sit in front of me, or somebody far worse than me and I'm going to rip them apart. I'm going to make sure that the rest of their life is ruined. That when they're 8 years old they throw up; when they're 12 years old, they won't sleep. When they're 19 years old they'll have nightmares and they'll never have a relationship with anybody. And that's not because I'm a nice guy. That's because when you're in court, and you're defending somebody's liberty, and you're facing a mandatory sentence of those draconian proportions, you have to do every single thing you can do on behalf of your client. That is your obligation as a trial lawyer.

Homosexual Mayonnaise Commercial Pulled

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:39 PM

When it becomes impossible to stuff any more black people into television commercials, the moonbats who create them will have to move on to another favored group. Homosexuals would seem a natural choice — but the public might need a little more softening up first. An appallingly tasteless mayonnaise commercial featuring men kissing in front of children had to be pulled from the British airwaves after less than a week due to an avalanche of complaints.

Here it is — guaranteed to kill your taste for mayonnaise:

Advertising agencies would be more effective if they focused on selling products, rather than pushing their moonbatty social agenda.

Justice Department Found Guilty of Discriminating against Wackos and Extremists

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:23 PM

Bush's Justice Department is in the hot seat again, this time for having implemented a screening policy to weed out job applicants who are "wackos" and "extremists." Naturally, Democrats are highly displeased to find themselves discriminated against.

A particularly egregious example:

One candidate, a Harvard student fluent in Arabic who was at the top of his class, was put in a "questionable" category evidently because of his membership in the Council on American Islamic Relations civil-rights group.

While CAIR is a civil rights group to Reuters, others know it as a front group for Hamas. Through CAIR, Hamas has set up a legal fifth column, modeled on the ACLU and devoted to softening our resistance to future terror attacks. The operation has admitted that convicted Islamic terrorists were CAIR officials. Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY), no friend of conservatives, has referred to CAIR's "intimate links with Hamas." Even Dick Durbin, the Senator who compares our troops at Club Gitmo to Nazis and communists, has noted that CAIR is "unusual in its extreme rhetoric and its associations with groups that are suspect."

But Patrick Leahy, Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, appears less squeamish as he righteously intones:

Never again should blatant partisanship be made the crux of the Justice Department's hiring practices … It houses our nation's top law enforcement officers, and it has been crippled in the last seven years.

How the Justice Department has managed to function without being infiltrated by Hamas is anyone's guess. But not to worry: Democrats will soon put it to rights.

Kofi Annan Demands "Climate Justice"

Posted by Dave Blount at 9:43 AM

Just when it seemed we had finally heard the last of the corrupt and incompetent moonbat Kofi Annan:

We must have climate justice. As an international community, we must recognise that the polluter must pay and not the poor and vulnerable. […] We cannot allow the extra cost of adapting to climate change to be siphoned off from the ongoing poverty challenge. We should act immediately to provide them with additional funding and appropriate technical assistance.

To summarize, climate justice = international socialism. No wonder they dumped him as head of the UN. If moonbats don't learn not to be upfront about the objectives driving the global warming hoax, they'll scare people into putting up resistance.

At least we're truly rid of one of them.

Mark Morford: Moonbat, Bigot, Pedophile

Posted by Dave Blount at 9:21 AM

The San Franfreakshow Comical's Mark Morford is even creepier than I knew. In addition to being a farcically slavish Obammunist and an obnoxious bigot, he dwells on the sexual corruption of children with the glee of a second-rate demon. From an old piece he did on sex ed in public schools:

Telling teens to repress their burgeoning beautiful natural chemical lustful cosmic urges that have been only recently delivered to them on the wings of salacious and well-lubed angels is like telling a fervent piano devotee that Mozart is a hack. […]
And oh my great goddess would it not just be goddamn shockingly fabulous if we could somehow be bold and different? If we could, for example and across all of America's public schools, teach the absolute opposite of abstinence? What a utopia we could envision. What a radical and gorgeous and messy and funky and delirious new world we could perhaps slowly, slyly nudge into being. Don't you think?
Which is to say, what if our schools, from kindergarten on, from our earliest textbooks and curricula and chalkboard diagrams, contained unashamed and unembarrassed and all-natural and healthily playful and (as time and age permitted) deeply informative and honest and raw and real information about human sexuality, all woven naturally into the curriculum much like math and reading and biology and revisionist world history and all those lies about World War II and Vietnam and Communism and religion? I mean, can you imagine?
And what if said information was designed to be all about natural, respectful, consensual sexuality, as honest and fleshy and complicated and potentially harmful but as ultimately gorgeous and peculiar and raw as human sexuality is so stickily wont to be?
Would that not, as I truly believe it would, be a major step toward curing many of the ailments plaguing our youth, and, by extension, our culture?
In other words, would a relaxed, sex-positive education planted like a hot seed from a very early age not affect a gradual and rather luscious sea change in the overall sexual attitudes of the culture, much the way you can slowly train the ear to hear nuances in music in or the eye to see the divine in nature the tongue to taste God in a bottle of Lagavulin 16? You're goddamn right it would.

Unsurprisingly, his cheesy, hollow god Obama also advocates sex ed starting in kindergarten.

Morford may be the creepiest and most repulsive creature alive.

Imus Commits Another Thought Crime

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:54 AM

After 8 months of banishment for saying "nappy-headed hos," Don Imus has managed to grovel his way back onto the airwaves. But already he's back in trouble for saying something insensitive:

Imus and sportscaster Warner Wolf were addressing Dallas Cowboys football star Adam "Pacman" Jones' involvement in a fight at a Las Vegas nightclub last year that led to a shooting. Jones, who was not accused of the shooting, was suspended for the 2007 season.
When Wolf said Jones had been "arrested six times since he was drafted by Tennessee in 2005," Imus responded by asking "What color is he?"
"He's African-American," Wolf said.
"Well, there you go," Imus said.

Al Sharpton, who has become the ultimate moral authority on all things racial by getting people killed with his race-baiting, darkly intones that he finds this "disturbing because it plays into stereotypes."

Like everything else deemed unspeakable according to the dogma of political correctness, Imus's comment wouldn't be controversial if it weren't valid. Imagine how this scenario would play out if Jones were Chinese. People would go, "huh?" and the show would move along.

Here's how Imus is attempting to spin it:

I meant he was being picked on because he's black.

Actually, it appears that what he meant is that a lot of black people play the race card when they get into trouble. But being a creature of the MSM, Imus wasted no time slipping on his kneepads.

Phony Amazon Find Is Moonbattery in a Nutshell

Posted by Dave Blount at 7:56 AM

Phony and insane — these two words best sum up the liberal point of view, as demonstrated perfectly by the story of a recently "discovered" tribe of Amazon savages:

They are the amazing pictures that were beamed around the globe: a handful of warriors from an 'undiscovered tribe' in the rainforest on the Brazilian-Peruvian border brandishing bows and arrows at the aircraft that photographed them.
Or so the story was told and sold. But it has now emerged that, far from being unknown, the tribe's existence has been noted since 1910 and the mission to photograph them was undertaken in order to prove that 'uncontacted' tribes still existed in an area endangered by the menace of the logging industry.

The phony discovery was publicized by José Carlos Meirelles of the Brazilian National Indian Foundation, aka Funai, who like many moonbats wants civilization curtailed and Stone Age barbarism to be given another chance. Meirelles describes his spotting the savages from an airplane:

When I saw them painted red, I was satisfied, I was happy. Because painted red means they are ready for war, which to me says they are happy and healthy defending their territory.

Just when it seems nothing could lift the pall of gloom that hangs over liberals, they find something to cheer them up: cavemen on the warpath. But the savages themselves might be even happier if treated to a decent meal and a trip to the dentist.

Like the lies generated by the global warming hoax, the point was to advance a left-wing agenda:

Survival International, the organisation that released the pictures along with Funai, conceded yesterday that Funai had known about this nomadic tribe for around two decades. It defended the disturbance of the tribe saying that, since the images had been released, it had forced neighbouring Peru to re-examine its logging policy in the border area where the tribe lives, as a result of the international media attention. Activist and former Funai president Sydney Possuelo agreed that — amid threats to their environment and doubt over the existence of such tribes — it was necessary to publish them.
But the revelation that the existence of the tribe was already established will provoke awkward questions over why a decision was made to try to photograph them — a form of contact in itself — in order to make a political point.

The important thing is that the do-gooders meant well — i.e., they were promoting moonbattery "by any means necessary," as their hero Malcolm X would say.

Here's an alternative plan for preserving the sacred ways of the noble savage: Fence off a few acres of forest, and let pointy-headed liberals live in it without the corruption of any technology more advanced than bows and arrows. My guess is the project would last until dinnertime.

Moonbats Respond to National Anthem

Imagine if a horde of vampires were to creep out from their unclean lairs, set on defiling the innocent, only to be sent into paroxysms of agonized rage with a shower of holy water. A similar scene occurred in Berkeley the other day, when Code Pink and World Can't Wait moonbats were confronted by decent, patriotic Americans. Via Zombie, here's their reaction to our National Anthem:

Maybe there's a solution to the moonbattery that threatens to reduce our country to something sordid and shameful. Just as Dracula could be driven back to his coffin with holy symbols, maybe the anthem could be used to drive moonbats onto college campuses, where they might be contained.

Obama Dumps His Seal of Arrogance

Posted by Dave Blount at 9:02 PM

Actually on the level.

At last the Obamessiah has been laughed into abandoning his pompous pseudo-presidential seal:

After days of media mockery, Barack Obama has decided to stop using a presidential-looking seal that his campaign designed and affixed to his podium on Friday.
Journalists said the seal, which features an eagle clutching arrows and an olive branch, smacks of arrogance. John McCain's camp had a field day, calling the seal "laughable, ridiculous, preposterous and revealing — all at the same time."
The seal was conspicuously missing from Obama's lectern when he spoke to a group of women in Albuquerque on Monday. Not surprising, given how much grief Obama took from a normally laudatory press corps after unveiling the seal at an appearance in Chicago on Friday.
"What a bizarre and dumb idea," railed NBC political director Chuck Todd. "It really feeds the arrogance narrative."

By now we know that Snobama's arrogance narrative doesn't need feeding. But he's got to have some kind of seal, to help his cult pretend he's a grownup. Right Wing News offers a few possibilities, including these:

AP Wallows in a Parody of Gloom

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:29 PM

Republicans hold the White House and there's an election coming up, so naturally the media wants us sunk in doom and gloom — but the liberal tools at AP have gotten a little carried away:

Midwestern levees are bursting. Polar bears are adrift. Gas prices are skyrocketing. Home values are abysmal. Air fares, college tuition and health care border on unaffordable. Wars without end rage in Iraq, Afghanistan and against terrorism.
Horatio Alger, twist in your grave.
The can-do, bootstrap approach embedded in the American psyche is under assault. Eroding it is a dour powerlessness that is chipping away at the country's sturdy conviction that destiny can be commanded with sheer courage and perseverance.

Paragraph after paragraph of misery is heaped upon the hapless reader. We're told that America feels a loss of control.

In case anyone fails to be steered in the right (I mean, Left) direction, we're reminded that we've gone through periods of supposed lost control before — and not to put too fine a point on it,

Each period also was followed by a change in the party controlling the White House.

But until Barack the Magic Negro can save the day by turning the clock back to the 1970s, we have to an endure a world so dreadful that Hollyweird writers go on strike and moonbatty newspapers stagger toward bankruptcy. Also, the weather has allegedly turned against us, New Orleans hasn't rebuilt all its slums, and some airlines charge for luggage.

Bloomberg Wants Still Higher Gas Taxes

Posted by Dave Blount at 10:21 AM

Gas prices aren't too high — they're too low. But not to worry, New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg knows how to fix the problem. Unsurprisingly, his solution is the same moonbats use for all problems: raise taxes even higher.

Bloomie explains his deranged conception of capitalism:

I think he [McCain] and Hillary Clinton couldn't both have been more wrong when they wanted to reduce the gasoline tax during the summer. They should be raising the tax and encouraging people to reduce consumption. The anti-tax people don't like that. But using capitalism to encourage the right behavior is exactly the [right] direction of going. Tax policy is the way government uses capitalism.

Actually, tax policy is the way government perverts, distorts, corrupts, and suppresses capitalism.

Remarks taxpayer Les Cox, interviewed at a Harlem gas station:

Bloomberg's a billionaire and has no idea what it's like out here.

The problem with us little people is that we don't want to let our betters decide how we should behave and what it's best for us to pay.

Rockland County Moonbats Wig Out over Mug Shot

Posted by Dave Blount at 9:43 AM

In Rockland County, just northwest of New York City, a police officer is getting raked over the coals because welfare cheat Shifra Cohen was asked to remove her wig so they could take a proper mug shot. Being Hasidic, Cohen doesn't like taking her wig off in public, and in a country run by moonbats, pandering to the eccentricities of non-Christian religions gets priority over the exigencies of law and order.

Puled Ramapo Supervisor Christopher St. Lawrence, "who has received major political support from the Hasidic and ultra-Orthodox communities":

This was an insensitive action by the police officer. I sincerely hope that the community will accept my heartfelt apologies for the insensitive behavior that occurred.

Local police will now be subjected to "additional sensitivity training on religious and ethnic issues" — i.e., insufferable multicultimoonbatty brainwashing.

Dennis Procter of the Police Benevolent Association describes the officer's offence:

The officer acted with the utmost professionalism and treated the arrested individual in the same manner any person would have been treated during the arrest processing.

The mistake was trying to treat all the criminals the same, when some animals are more equal than others. The purpose of mug shots — to provide a record of what the criminal actually looks like, without wigs, turbans, novelty nose-and-moustache glasses, etc. — is irrelevant in the face of moonbattery:

St. Lawrence said District Attorney Thomas Zugibe told him the photograph of the woman would be expunged and a new photo taken at a future date.

No doubt Muslim welfare cheats will now insist their mug shots be taken while they're wearing hijabs. Dhimmified authorities have already complied with this demand regarding drivers license photos.

How long until a criminal's religion requires wearing these?

Newspeak Dictionary Update Alert

Here's how Merriam-Webster defines the term brainstorming:

a group problem-solving technique that involves the spontaneous contribution of ideas from all members of the group; also : the mulling over of ideas by one or more individuals in an attempt to devise or find a solution to a problem

Hoax Whore James Hansen Calls for Stalinesque Show Trials

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:06 AM

Believe it or not, Al Gore isn't the creepiest moonbat to exploit the global warming hoax. Creepier still is his friend James Hansen, the NASA bureaucrat who during the 70s prostituted science for global cooling. Hansen, who provided propaganda support for Gore's A Convenient Lie, is making a pretty penny from the pernicious hoax. Revealing the Bolshevik red that can always be found beneath the green facade of environmental fanaticism, Hansen is now calling for the arrest of oil company CEOs.

Their crime: providing the energy required for modern civilization to function. The charges are to be something along the lines of "high crimes against humanity and nature." Specifically, they are accused of spreading doubt about the global warming hoax.

Like Lenin, Mao, Castro, and other luminaries of the Left, Hansen regards doubting progressive ideology to be literally criminal. Also like his fellow authoritarian moonbats, he insists on the remaking of society. Not only are critics to be coercively silenced, but there must be a moratorium on coal-fired power plants, so that wind, solar, and pixie dust can be given a chance to keep the economy from collapsing as completely as in Pol Pot's Kampuchea.

Hansen had better keep screaming at the top of his lungs, if he wants to drown out the fact that it hasn't gotten any warmer in the last 11 years. Hopefully he will yell himself hoarse before disseminating such information becomes illegal.

Hoaxers like Hansen hope to master the world.

North Korea Endorses Obama

Posted by Dave Blount at 7:10 AM

North Korea — the prison state that has taken moonbattery to the point of reducing its inmates to eating grass — has unsurprisingly followed the lead of Hamas by endorsing Barack Obama. From One Free Korea:

The Chosun Sinbo, the mouthpiece of North Korea's Japanese front organization Chongryon and often for the North Korean regime itself, has announced its preference for Obama over McCain, whom it calls "a variant of Bush" and "nothing better than a scarecrow of neoconservatives," which is a bit odd considering that the Bush Administration's giveaway diplomacy is better for Kim Jong Il than even Clinton's awful performance.

Obama is praised for being willing to meet with the satanic dictator Kim Jong Il without preconditions, whereas McCain is vilified for being a "Bush clone."

McCain = Bush. Where have I heard that before? Oh yeah, from the standard Democrat talking points. It looks like Osama bin Laden isn't our only enemy to draw inspiration from them.

Ironically, Obama's the one who would continue the Bush policy of aid and appeasement, whereas McCain might actually hold North Korea responsible for having possibly the most repressive government on Earth.

Britons Aren't Buying Global Warming Hoax

Posted by Dave Blount at 10:17 AM

At last, some good news from Britain. Despite having been subjected to a relentless barrage of propaganda, Britons still aren't buying the global warming hoax.

The majority of the British public is still not convinced that climate change is caused by humans — and many others believe scientists are exaggerating the problem, according to an exclusive poll for The Observer.
The results have shocked campaigners who hoped that doubts would have been silenced by a report last year by more than 2,500 scientists for the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), which found a 90 per cent chance that humans were the main cause of climate change and warned that drastic action was needed to cut greenhouse gas emissions.

Imagine that: people aren't convinced by the self-serving lies shouted by the power-mad bureauweenies on the hyper-politicized IPCC. Despite the mainstream media's efforts to suppress it, word must have gotten out to the public about actual scientists on the IPCC so appalled by this prostitution of science in the name of totalitarianism as to renounce the Nobel Prize, or the long list of top scientists who petitioned the UN to stop pushing this malignant hoax.

Meanwhile, the British government is about to announce plans for a tax hike/power grab that will supposedly reduce the country's harmless greenhouse gas emissions by 20%. The revelation that so many victims still have their eyes open is unwelcome news to Jonathan Porritt of the bureaucracy's Sustainable Development Commission, who complains:

It's disappointing and the government will be really worried. They [politicians] need the context in which they're developing new policies to be a lot stronger and more positive. Otherwise the potential for backlash and unpopularity is considerable.

Socialized Medicine Report

Posted by Dave Blount at 10:13 AM

There is one nice thing about socialized medicine: it guarantees there will always be outrageous lunacy to report. The latest:

A pregnant woman was forced to give birth in a hospital corridor after being turned away from two hospitals when she went into labour. Humilated new mother Emma Johnson gave birth in a hallway at the Princess Royal Hospital in Haywards Heath, West Sussex. She plans to make an official complaint to NHS bosses after being turned away from two hospitals by staff who claimed there were "no beds available".

But that's not the crazy part. What's truly insane is that even after watching Britain and Canada jump off the cliff by socializing medicine, America may follow suit.

As a small child could understand, when an autocratic government sets an artificially low price on a valuable and limited commodity, the supply will disappear. This is why socialized medicine does not and could not possibly work. It's also why calls by Democrats to control gas prices not by drilling for oil but by nationalizing the energy industry is such good news to anyone nostalgic for horses and buggies.

UN Cracks Down on Criticism of Islam

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:38 AM

The tasteless joke known as the UN Human Rights Council has forbidden criticism of Muslim human rights abuses.

Muslim countries have won a battle to prevent Islam from being criticised during debates by the UN Human Rights Council. Religions deserve special protection because any debate about faith is bound to be "very complex, very sensitive and very intense", council President Doru-Romulus Costea said Wednesday. […] Only religious scholars should be allowed to discuss matters of faith, he told journalists in Geneva. While Costea's ban applies to all religions, it was prompted by Muslim countries complaining about references to Islam.

Since other religions exhort people to do good instead of evil, only Islam requires special protection from the malignant UN.

This means there is to be no more complaining about genital mutilation and honor killings among Muslims. Oh, and the UN Human Rights Council does not allow itself to criticize sharia or fatwas. But it's okay to criticize the atrocities of September 11, since that was the work of George Bush, according to UN bureaucrats.

If the nightmare of a universal caliphate ever becomes real, it will happen in part because American taxpayers helped pave the way by funding the UN.

Dumpster Muffin Fends Off Civilization

Posted by Dave Blount at 7:40 AM

The other day it looked like authorities had finally gotten tired of fooling around with the moonbats who have been infesting the trees near Memorial Stadium in Berkeley for the last year and a half, ostensibly to protest the building of a new sports facility. However, the saga continues.

UC Berkeley's tough new policy is to cut supply lines and to remove those treetards who don't put up a fight. Congenitally cowardly, university officials snivel that they will not put anyone at risk by forcing them to come down, despite the danger that hippies will continue to fall out on their own.

This leaves the moonbats free to carry on with their spectacle. Zombie reports:

The sitters had constructed an insanely perilous aerie towering far above the highest branches. It was occupied by a protester with the too-perfect name Dumpster Muffin (yes, her name really is Dumpster Muffin), who would go into convulsions whenever one of the dismantlement-minded arborists neared her outpost. She’d screech and scream and shake the platform violently, forcing her opponents (who were dangling from a cable attached to a crane) to back off, fearing she’d martyr herself by plummeting to the ground rather than be captured. Using this technique repeatedly, Dumpster Muffin (seen here warily eyeing the crane in the distance) successfully defended her perch, to cheers from supporters down below.

A local news station has surreal video.

At least if Obama is elected, Dumpster Muffin will have to come down — unless she wants to turn down her likely appointment as Secretary of the Interior.

What sort of invertebrates will be passing themselves off as Britons in days to come? The country that went from Winston Churchill to Boy George in two generations continues its willful tailspin:

For generations falling over on a bumpy grass running track was all part of the fun of school sports day.
Nowadays health and safety concerns have deemed it an unacceptable risk.
A junior school in West Sussex has cancelled its annual summer sports day because of fears that children will trip over and hurt themselves during the events.
The headteacher has decided the surface of the school's new playing field was 'too dangerous' for the traditional three-legged, egg and spoon and sack races due to the number of cracks and holes in the ground.

The field is grass. If kids trip and fall on it during a three-legged race, that's pretty much par for the course. Or it once was.

U.N. Official Demands 9/11 Conspiracy Investigation

Armpit-scratching Troofers can take heart that they have an ally in their quest to rewrite history so that it was not Muslim terrorists but the Bush Administration that committed the atrocities of 9/11. Former Princeton professor Richard Falk, the moonbatty special rapporteur on human rights in the Palestinian territories, normally specializes in hurling nasty allegations at Israel. But now he has his own country in his sights, as he demands that the U.N. investigate whether "some sort of controlled explosion from within" brought down the World Trade Center.

Here he goes:

I do think there are questions that haven't been answered, questions about the way the buildings collapsed and the failure to heed a variety of signals that there was danger coming.

As always, the lone voice of sanity in anything involving the execrable U.N. is John Bolton, who — thanks to Democrats — is no longer our ambassador:

I think [his beliefs are] fruitcake city, but among many delegations to the U.N. it's probably the conventional wisdom.
It's just an example of the inmates running the asylum. It's a particularly graphic example for Americans, but this is not an aberration — this is, unfortunately, typical of much of what goes on.

By the way, Americans pay the lion's share of the salaries of Richard Falk and the rest of the verminous creeps infesting the U.N.

Third World colonizers certainly are catching on to how you get ahead in the West — by posing as a victim and suing. A London hair salon is now on the brink of bankruptcy after being ordered to pay 19-year-old Bushra Noah $7,800 because her feelings were hurt when it failed to hire her. The job entailed showing her hair, which as a Muslim she made clear in advance she would not do.

Here's a terrifying paragraph:

[The owner] was unable to prove to the court that employing someone with a headscarf would have a negative impact on her business' stylistic integrity, The Mail reported.

The idea that you could prove such a thing in court is preposterous. But what's worse: what kind of totalitarian dystopia are we living in if private citizens have to justify how they run their businesses to moonbatty, authoritarian courts that don't know the first thing about them?

Meanwhile, a Sikh is suing Disney World for $1 million, claiming it wouldn't hire him as a trumpet player because the turban and conspicuously neglected personal grooming characteristic of his religion didn't fit the Disney look. According to Disney, the guy never even applied for a job. But they'll no doubt settle for something in the six-figure range.

Look who's back.

Canadian Court Overrules 12-Year-Old's Grounding

Posted by Dave Blount at 11:19 AM

To destroy the family, the liberal State must displace parents. This has led to bureaucratic micromismanagement in Canada, where a court has overturned a 12-year-old's grounding.

Using a taxpayer-financed lawyer, a little girl took her father to court for refusing to allow her to go on a school trip as punishment for visiting websites he had tried to block. But she appealed to a higher parent — the State — which indulgently told the little darling she could go.

Maurice Hinchey Calls for Nationalization of Oil Refineries

Posted by Dave Blount at 7:57 AM

Why is it that Democrats deliberately exacerbate high gas prices by doing everything they can to prevent drilling in the USA, so that we are at the mercy of enemies for the fuel we need to keep the economy running? It's possible some really are nutty enough to think it will oppress the caribou if we drill in the ANWR, or inconvenience fish if we drill off the coast. Rep. Maurice Hinchey (D-NY), one of the most vociferous opponents of off-shore drilling, offered a clue as to the motivation of the rest of them during an off-camera briefing:

We (the government) should own the refineries. Then we can control how much gets out into the market.

Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA), has already threatened to nationalize the entire industry.

We don't need to drill for oil. We can just nationalize it. Then the price will be whatever bureaucrats say it is.

Fellow socialist thug Hugo Chavez has taken the same approach. This is how he managed to created food shortages in oil-rich Venezuela despite record high oil prices.

We haven't built a new refinery in this country in over 30 years, thanks to government interference. If the goal is to impose socialism by providing an excuse to nationalize a key sector of the economy, this interference almost makes sense.

No doubt after the same folks who control our dysfunctional public schools have taken over the energy industry, prices will be brought under control. I wouldn't be surprised to see gasoline at $1/gallon again. Unfortunately it will have to be rationed so heavily that you'll need government connections to get any. Prepare to be told that having to walk to work is necessary to save the polar bears.

As socialism teaches us time after time, wealth cannot be created by bumbling autocrats, but only destroyed.

Don Schrader: A Natural for BHO's Cabinet

Posted by Dave Blount at 6:56 AM

When it comes to picking a Secretary of Health, Education, and Welfare, Barack Obama need look no farther than Don Schrader. An old puff piece in New Mexico's Daily Lobo glowingly reports that he's been a member of the University of New Mexico community since 1970, when he came to Albuquerque as a conscientious objector to the Vietnam War. Schrader has used a local public access channel to advocate poverty, pacifism, and environmental extremism. Evidently sharing possible Energy Secretary Al Gore's belief that the internal combustion engine is "a mortal threat … more deadly than that of any military enemy," he refuses to ride in vehicles.

There's more:

Schrader also practices urine therapy. He began the therapy in 1999 and drinks one to five cups of his own urine every day.
"This has been practiced for thousands of years all over the world," he said.
Schrader said urine contains hundreds of nutrients and is healthy for the skin.
"There have been multitudes of people all over the world, for many centuries, healing almost every disease known to human kind by urine therapy," he said. "It is tried and true. There is no hocus pocus."
Schrader said his other convictions are to be a homosexual and a nudist. He said he didn't know of the existence of homosexuality until he was in his 30s.
"That's how ignorant we were of such things," he said. "It's especially ironic that 43 years later, I am the most well-known openly gay man in the city."

But wait, there could be a problem…

Schrader said the most important conviction is to not pay federal taxes. He has not paid federal income tax for 27 years and has pledged never to pay again. He said he refuses to pay to murder people.
"I have come to see that for me, as a conscientious objector to all war, to pay federal income tax to train other people — largely the poor and people of color — to become professional hired killers for Uncle Sam, for the U.S. empire, to murder on command with no conscience, would be more evil than for me to be a soldier myself," he said.

An aversion to taxes won't win him any friends in an Obamination Administration.

But even on taxes, both his motives and his methods are pure. He dodges the taxman by scrupulously avoiding work, thereby earning so little money that he doesn't owe any. This dovetails nicely with Michelle Obama's helpful advice that college grads not pursue the American dream.

Schrader's a guy Obama could forgive for being white.

Next on the Agenda: Animal Marriage

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:18 PM

Now that a wacky California court has overruled the voters and declared homosexual marriage valid, moonbats can prepare the next blow against holy matrimony — and by extension, the family. Polygamy might seem like a natural choice, but liberals associate it with Mormons, who in turn are associated with conservatives. Apparently they're going with animal marriage instead.

For now the emphasis has been on marriages within a species. However, "prejudices" keep falling like dominos.

But even as moonbattery appears poised to triumph over civilization, capitalism holds sway. Pet wedding consultants are charging as much as $1,500. Beaded dog wedding gowns go for up to $10,000.

There's no guessing how much you could blow on a honeymoon at Enumclaw.

Moonbats May Finally Be Removed from Berkeley Trees

Posted by Dave Blount at 10:38 AM

The moonbats who have been infesting, maiming, and even dropping from the trees near Memorial Stadium at UC Berkeley for the last year and a half may finally be removed.

Arborists cut ropes used to supply the moonbats. It wasn't easy work. Police and arborists were pelted with human waste. A progressive calling herself "Millipede" was taken into custody for biting an arborist.

Tree-dwelling moonbats at UC Santa Cruz have expressed concern.

Berkeley's tree infestation has cost the university $370,000 in security costs.

Police have the area fenced off, but ProtestShooter has some pictures of local fauna drawn out of its burrows by the commotion:



Animal Planet ought to do something really exotic, and film a Wild Kingdom episode in Berkeley.

Another, from Zombie:


Zombie asked the moonbat above, "Are you trying to start a die-in, or just sunbathing in the street?" The reply: "I feel it's important to be in touch with the ground at this time. Perhaps someone will bring me some food."

Berkeley is one place where Obama will not need to campaign.

Massachusetts School of Law Calls for Hanging President Bush

Posted by Dave Blount at 9:02 AM

It pleases moonbats to be morally superior to anyone who doesn't realize that capital punishment is barbaric. Of course, this only applies to criminals, not to your own unborn children, or to top officials in the American government deemed to be insufficiently progressive, including the President.

The Massachusetts School of Law at Andover is convening a conference in September to plot the prosecution of W et al. for imaginary "war crimes." Bellows Dean Lawrence Velvel:

We must insist on appropriate punishments, including, if guilt is found, the hangings visited upon top German and Japanese war-criminals in the 1940s.

Stringing up the President and members of his administration after they've left office would send "a powerful lesson to future American leaders."

It sure would, that message being that America is now a banana republic, where the pension plan for anyone no longer in power consists of a length of rope or a firing squad. There are indications that Obama might be on the same page.

Obama Supporter Calls for Attacks on U.S. Troops

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:10 AM

Ayham Alsammarae is not a wholesome character. A former Minister of Electricity in Iraq, he was jailed on corruption charges, but was then busted out of prison by mercenaries. He turned up in Amman, Jordan, where he gave a press conference the other day, at which he expressed his hope that the terrorist insurgency in Iraq "would continue [against U.S. occupation] and avenges the Iraqi people."

Like a lot of other extremely unsavory people, Alsammarae is a supporter of Barack Obama. He gave the maximum $2,300 to Obama's campaign. Alsammarrae holds American citizenship, and owns a mansion in the Chicago area. During his Iraqi bureaucrat days, he brokered deals with his former roommate, Obama's old friend Tony Rezko, who has also been found guilty of corruption.

Naked Moonbat Hijacking Family Parade

Posted by Dave Blount at 7:21 AM

More from Oregon, which appears to be lost to the civilized world:

A woman seen frequently in Ashland riding topless on her bicycle says she plans to be in Ashland's Fourth of July parade free and independent of all clothing but a hemp G-string. The Chamber of Commerce says that's contrary to the rules for the family celebration. She says she'll sue if she can't parade as she wishes.

Like many of the moonbats infesting the Pacific Northwest, Jen Moss is a refugee from California, where she complains police harassed her for riding around on a bicycle wearing only a G-string and pasties. Her plan for the family-oriented Fourth of July event is to lead a troupe of in-line skaters "wearing only a hemp G-string and blowing a conch shell."

Moss has threatened to sic the ACLU on the town if she's not allowed to turn the parade into a pornographic freak show. City Council member Eric Navickas is already on her side, puling that it would be

an interesting commentary on our society that we're willing to tolerate dead bodies through our aggressive foreign policy from the war, but not healthy, naked bodies.

People like this are taking over our country, forcibly reducing it to an abomination unlikely to survive.

Pledge of Allegiance Banned to Please Muslims

From Portland, another indication of the caliber of the people who have been entrusted with educating the next generation:

Most children growing up in the US memorize the Pledge of Allegiance. But, in one Oregon elementary school, the kids won't be allowed to recite it at an end of the year assembly. The principal banned it that day so as not to offend Muslims.

The principal's explicit excuse was that Muslims wouldn't like the reference to God.

Al Gore's Carbon Footprint Keeps Getting Bigger

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:07 PM

I seem to recall that after the Goracle was revealed to be a phony, one of whose homes used 20 times the power of a normal family, we were told that he would make it all better by installing solar panels or windmills or whatever. As with everything pertaining to the Goracle, these assurances were false:

In the year since Al Gore took steps to make his home more energy-efficient, the former Vice President's home energy use surged more than 10%, according to the Tennessee Center for Policy Research. […] In the past year, Gore's home burned through 213,210 kilowatt-hours (kWh) of electricity, enough to power 232 average American households for a month.

It's not that Gore didn't try to make his house green. It's just that the environmentalist gestures ecofascists like himself keep demanding don't actually do any good:

Despite adding solar panels, installing a geothermal system, replacing existing light bulbs with more efficient models, and overhauling the home's windows and ductwork, Gore now consumes more electricity than before the "green" overhaul.
Since taking steps to make his home more environmentally-friendly last June, Gore devours an average of 17,768 kWh per month —1,638 kWh more energy per month than before the renovations — at a cost of $16,533. By comparison, the average American household consumes 11,040 kWh in an entire year, according to the Energy Information Administration.

But intentions and ideological conformity are all that count, not actual results, right moonbats? Otherwise this would be all over the news. They might even take his Oscar and Grammy and Ignoble Putz Prize away.

The Goracle has been living like a czar on proceeds from the global warming hoax.

Maniacs' Rights Movement Is Born

Posted by Dave Blount at 9:20 AM

Apparently hospitals will now be required to let deranged patients go berserk until they tire themselves out. Maintaining order for the safety of the other patients would be a violation of maniacs' rights. From Minnesota:

When the emergency room staff at Northfield City Hospital thought an obviously disturbed patient was about to turn violent, they did what many hospitals do in that situation: They called the police.
In this instance, officers used a Taser to shock the man. The patient dropped to the floor, was injected with medications and transferred to the psychiatric unit at another hospital, according to an official report about the February incident.
Now federal and state health officials have cited the Northfield hospital for violating the patient's rights.

Once again we see that anyone who takes money from the government, is at the mercy of the government:

The Minnesota Department of Health, which investigated the incident, cited the hospital for failing to protect the patient's safety. Under federal law, the hospital could lose Medicare funding if the problem isn't corrected.

Staff had of course tried to calm the maniac down using "verbal deescalation," but when he became more and more agitated, they made the mistake of placing the safety of all the normal people in the hospital above the minority privilege that entitles psychos to behave as they please.

Maniacs' rights could be the next big movement, no doubt culminating in a presidential candidate who has no qualifications other than being a maniac.

Cuban Regime and MSM Still Exploiting Elian Gonzalez

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:47 AM

Elizabeth Broton Rodriquez drowned during a desperate attempt to help her son Elian Gonzalez escape from the wretched communist slave state Cuba, so that he might grow up in wealth and freedom in America. Her sacrifice was in vain: the Clinton Administration abducted the little boy from the relatives who had given him shelter and offered him up to the totalitarian Castro regime, which has been exploiting him as a political pawn ever since — as have its fellow travelers in our leftist media.

A brainwashed Elian has now been inducted into the Young Communist Union. Here's how AP reported the delightful news:

Communist youth newspaper Juventud Rebelde quotes Elian Gonzalez as saying he will never let down ex-President Fidel Castro and his brother Raul Castro, who succeeded Fidel earlier this year. Now 14, Elian was 6 when Miami relatives lost their fight to keep him in the United States and he was returned to Cuba in mid-2000 with his father. Elian had survived a boating accident off the Florida coast that killed his mother, who was attempting to get to the U.S.

A boating accident. That's like saying the Germans who didn't make it over the Berlin Wall died in target practice incidents.

CNN was no better, playing along with the whole farce as if the kid had rejected freedom and wholeheartedly embraced slavery of his own free will — just as the MSM would have us all do.

Correspondent Shasta Darlington reported that

for most Cubans, it comes as no surprise that Elian Gonzalez joined the ranks of those young people who [are] most committed to Fidel Castro's revolution.

Kiran Chetry chirped that his inevitable recruitment into Cuba's version of Hitler Youth

does show a certain commitment to the revolution and to the party that not all youngsters have.

If communists ever seize power in America, they won't have to worry about subduing the media. It's already on their side.

NY Times Collects Obama Endorsements among France's Third-World Colonists

Posted by Dave Blount at 7:37 AM

Though the liberal media is mostly blacking it out, Third-World colonists from Africa and the Middle East continue to torch cars and clash with police in France. An intrepid New York Times reporter ventured to Paristan and returned proudly waving more endorsements for our affirmative action post turtle:

When Youssoupha, a black rapper here, was asked the other day what was on his mind, a grin spread across his face. "Barack Obama," he said. "Obama tells us everything is possible."

Buried in two pages extolling the glories of négritude (i.e., black racism) is a paragraph actually acknowledging what's going on over there.

Meanwhile, this past weekend, 60 cars were burned and some 50 young people scuffled with police and firemen, injuring several of them, in a poor minority suburb of Vitry-le-François, in the Marne region of northeast France.

Then it's back to the négritude and Obama endorsements, finishing on a quote from an immigrant from Cameroon who denounces France as "hypocritical":

Then she smiled: "Too bad I forgot to wear my Obama T-shirt."

If I had the correct skin color, and an Obama T-shirt to remember to wear, I wonder if the New York Times would object to my showing up in their lobby with a gas can and a match. If so, France doesn't have a monopoly on hypocrisy.

Gavin Newsom Presides over Orgy of Profane Marriages

Posted by Dave Blount at 9:21 PM

Thanks in part to the efforts of San Franfreakshow's drunken, degenerate Mayor Gavin Newsom, homosexual marriage has at least temporarily been deemed valid in the Land of Fruits and Nuts by judicial decree.

The orgy has already begun, with homosexuals pouring into the state from all over the country to participate in the official mocking of the sacrament of marriage. Newsom initiated the festivities by presiding over the grotesque parody of a wedding officially uniting a pair of shriveled, drooling, 80-something lesbians.

You would think the government would be more interested in coming up with new excuses to raise taxes than in defiling and destroying human civilization's most fundamental institution. But there's a method to the madness.

Liberals dominate the bureaucracy and may soon have complete control of the federal government. They dominate the courts. They dominate the media. They dominate education, both public and private. The only serious obstacle preventing progressives from remaking society according to their twisted visions is the family. Reducing marriage to a tasteless joke may not do as much damage to the family as welfare has done, but it's sure to take a toll.

Newsom proudly presides over a blasphemous travesty of marriage.

The Sikh who claimed discrimination was kept on full pay while assigned the task of finding equipment that would fit over his Sikh attire. Finally he gave up and went on long-term sick leave, because he suffers from "stress." Sounds familiar, doesn't it? Good thing taxpayers have plenty of money.

Grammar School Abortion Clinics Expand in Britain

Posted by Dave Blount at 10:37 AM

To use the terminology of E.U. bureauweenies, Britain's public schools have claimed a "competency" that shoves parents another step toward obsolescence.

Sexual health clinics are to be opened in secondary schools to hand out contraception and help arrange abortions.
Pupils as young as 11 will be able to drop in for free condoms, contraceptive pills, morning-after pills, pregnancy testing and screening for sexually-transmitted diseases.
Parents will be made aware of the clinics but will not be told if their children have attended.
Hundreds of schools already run sexual health clinics but many more are expected to follow suit after researchers praised a pilot scheme involving 16 schools in deprived parts of Bristol.
A research team from the University of the West of England concluded that pupils are more likely to use sex advice services if they are based at school. According to their report, the 16 clinics, catering for 11,805 pupils, received around 500 visits a month from pupils, most aged between 14 and 16 but some as young as 11.
The researchers tracked 515 youngsters over 15 months and found that nurses gave 55 girls the morning-after pill, with one receiving it three times.
Nurses also carried out 213 pregnancy tests for 137 girls and found that nine were pregnant.
One girl became pregnant three times and was referred each time to an abortion advisory service.

Running abortion mills out of grammar schools accomplishes more than keeping the population down in "deprived" parts of Britain. By edging parents out of even the most personal matters, the State has moved closer to its objective of obliterating the family, the last major obstacle to absolute indoctrination and control.

Now liberals can do more than sneer at "family values." They can stamp them out altogether.

Sharpton Extorting a Fortune from Corporations

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:59 AM

One sector of the economy that is doing just fine is the racial extortion business. Greasy thug and prominent Democrat politician Al Sharpton — whose race-baiting has gotten people killed on more than one occasion — is making a mint:

Anheuser-Busch gave him six figures, Colgate-Palmolive shelled out $50,000 and Macy's and Pfizer have contributed thousands to the Rev. Al Sharpton's charity.
Almost 50 companies — including PepsiCo, General Motors, Wal-Mart, FedEx, Continental Airlines, Johnson & Johnson and Chase — and some labor unions sponsored Sharpton's National Action Network [NAN] annual conference in April.
Terrified of negative publicity, fearful of a consumer boycott or eager to make nice with the civil-rights activist, CEOs write checks, critics say, to NAN and Sharpton — who brandishes the buying power of African-American consumers. In some cases, they hire him as a consultant.

NAN is a tax-exempt, nonprofit funnel with the skinny end sticking into Sharpton's pocket. The extortion is as obvious as paying the mafia not to break your store's windows.

A General Motors spokesman told The Post that NAN had repeatedly — and unsuccessfully — asked for contributions for six years, beginning in August 2000.
Then, in December 2006, Sharpton threatened to call a boycott of the carmaker over the closing of an African-American-owned GM dealership in The Bronx, and he picketed outside GM headquarters on Fifth Avenue.
Last year, General Motors gave NAN a $5,000 donation. It gave $5,000 more this year, a spokesman said, calling NAN a "worthy" organization.
In November 2003, Sharpton picketed DaimlerChrysler's Chicago car show and threatened a boycott over alleged racial bias in car loans.
"This is institutional racism," he bellowed.
In May 2004, Chrysler began supporting NAN's conferences, which include panels on corporate responsibility and civil rights and a black-tie awards dinner to honor Martin Luther King Jr. Last year, Sharpton gave Chrysler an award for corporate excellence.

Sharpton acquires not only money, but power — the power to get his supporters hired rather than more qualified Caucasians.

In 2003, Sharpton targeted American Honda for not hiring enough African-Americans in management.
"We support those that support us," wrote Sharpton and the Rev. Horace Sheffield III, president of NAN's Michigan chapter, in a letter to American Honda. "We cannot be silent while African-Americans spend hard-earned dollars with a company that does not hire, promote or do business with us in a statistically significant manner."
Two months after American Honda execs met with Sharpton, the carmaker began to sponsor NAN's events — and continues to pay "a modest amount" each year, a spokesman said.

There are laws against extortion and racketeering. But apparently they only apply to white people. Otherwise Jesse Jackson would have been locked up long ago. At least the U.S. Attorney's Office in Brooklyn is finally looking into NAN's finances.

Even Some Dems Hesitant to Go Over the Edge with Obama

Not all Democrats are sufficiently deranged to get on board with turning the country over to an adolescent Marxist with near zero experience who comes from a black supremacist background and is on a friendly basis with unrepentant anti-U.S. terrorists. Via the Political Grapevine:

He's got some bad connections, and he may be terrorist connected for all I can tell. It sounds kind of like he may be."
Hobbs was giving an interview to the paper about fellow Tennessee Congressman and Democratic superdelegate Lincoln Davis, who has not yet declared his support for Obama.
Reacting to Hobbs, Davis' Chief of Staff Beecher Frasier says he does not know for sure if Obama is terrorist connected, but he assumes he is not.

Despite some of the infuriating political stances John McCain has taken, no one can fail to respect what he went through in Vietnam, where he effectively volunteered for years of torture rather than accept release prior to other GIs who had been in captivity longer.

Well, almost no one. Gore Vidal of the elite moonbat intelligentsia flings his appalling opinions at the subject in an interview with NY Times Magazine's Deborah Solomon:

Asked what he thinks of McCain, Vidal calls him a "disaster," then tells Deborah Solomon, "Who started this rumor that he was a war hero? Where does that come from, aside from himself? About his suffering in the prison war camp?"
Solomon replies: "Everyone knows he was a prisoner of war in North Vietnam." To which Vidal responds: "That's what he tells us."

Sure, he broke his own teeth off at the gumline and then made out like the sweet and innocent communists did it.

No amount of reaching across the aisle with moonbatty policies on border defense, First Amendment rights, the global warming hoax, et cetera is going to spare McCain from the wrath of the liberal establishment. They'll never forgive him for not being one of them — i.e., a crawling obscenity.

Intellectually superior halfwit jackass Gore Vidal strikes a pose.

Euroluddite Moonbattery Causes Headaches for Beekeepers

Posted by Dave Blount at 10:17 AM

As you may have heard, many European moonbats regard genetically modified crops — a triumph of human ingenuity over hunger — to have political cooties. They have even inflicted starvation in Africa as part of their campaign to keep the Dark Continent in the dark regarding agricultural technology that could help feed its people. Now this absurd prejudice has led to hard times for beekeepers:

Bee-keepers in Germany are increasingly taking their buzzing charges on long commuter journeys to the pollen fields — in order to avoid genetically-manipulated (GM) corn which can contaminate honey.
The GM pollen collected by bees from GM corn makes the honey too GM for human consumption, and thus impossible to sell, with big fines and even prison sentences for those who break the rules.

Bureauweenies will put beekeepers in prison for up to three years if their bees stray too near to modern corn. The likelihood of any harm coming from "GM" honey is remote, but not as remote as the chances of any human endeavor escaping being made more difficult and expensive by meddling moonbats.

Idolizing Both Che and Obama

Posted by Dave Blount at 1:23 PM

Unfortunately Maria Isabel — the Obama campaigner worker fond of displaying flags that feature communist executioner Che Guevara — is not unique:


The moonbat above is Lorain County, Ohio Judge James Burge. The picture accompanies a USA Today story describing Burge's opposition to Ohio's lethal injection procedure, on the grounds that it isn't quick and painless enough for murderers.

As a fan of Che Guevara, he no doubt feels that a bullet to the head is plenty quick and painless enough for counterrevolutionaries.

Guevara was Fidel Castro's personal executioner. Every socialist dictatorship needs one. The Nazis had Heinrich Himmler, the Soviets had Felix Dzerzhinsky, the Khmer Rouge had Honcho Nuon Chea. For some reason progressives chose Guevara as the personification of the evil they embrace.

Maybe it's because Che inspired them with lofty words like those below.

Dismissing the objections of a colleague who understood the importance of trials and proof:

Go ahead and try them tomorrow morning — but execute them NOW!

From his Motorcycle Diaries, which acolyte Robert Redford managed to edit into a cinematic hagiography:

Crazy with fury I will stain my rifle red while slaughtering any enemy that falls in my hands! My nostrils dilate while savoring the acrid odor of gunpowder and blood. With the deaths of my enemies I prepare my being for the sacred fight and join the triumphant proletariat with a bestial howl!

Instructing his Revolutionary Tribunals:

We don't need proof to execute a man. We only need proof that it's necessary to execute him. A revolutionary must become a cold killing machine motivated by pure hate.

From a letter to his father:

I'd like to confess, papa, at that moment I discovered that I really like killing.

Summing up socialism, after describing how he shot some poor helpless guy in the head at point-blank range:

He went into convulsions for a while and was finally still. Now his belongings were mine.

To a 14-year-old boy, just before he personally blew the kid's brains out for trying to defend his father, who was also executed:


(The kid wouldn't kneel and had to be murdered standing up.)

Your average teenager walking around the shopping mall in a Che T-shirt is only doing it to be a brat. But adults who adulate such pure evil are fit subjects for an exorcism.

The popularity of both Che Guevara and Barack Obama among the same moonbats indicates what the vague rhetoric about Hope and Change actually means. These sick freaks are hoping to change America into hell on earth.

Nonetheless they're morally superior, because they think pricking a murderer with a needle is cruel and unusual punishment.

Che Guevara is thankfully dead. But they've still got Obama.

Jodie Evans of Code Pink Raising Money for Obama

Posted by Dave Blount at 9:28 AM

Here's a small surprise: Jodie Evans, cofounder of the ultra-Left outfit Code Pink, is now bundling for the Obama campaign. Just as Code Pink raised $600,000 for the Islamic terrorists killing American troops in Fallujah, Evans has promised to raise $50,000 for BHO.

Here's Evans presenting al Qaeda's case for the 9/11 atrocities:

We had it coming because we had bases in Saudi Arabia, which were there to protect that country from Saddam Hussein. The way forward is obvious: accede to all terrorist demands, no matter how outrageous, hide under our beds, and hope they don't come after us. This is Obama's foreign policy in a nutshell, so Evans is as good a match for the campaign as terrorist anchor baby Mohamed Salim Al-Churbaji.

In addition to her work with Code Pink, Evans

sits on the board of directors of the Rain Forest Action Network (RAN), a coalition of anti-capitalist, anti-corporate environmentalist groups. RAN’s co-founder Michael Roselle also founded the Earth Liberation Front, which the FBI ranks alongside the Animal Liberation Front as the foremost domestic terrorism threats in the United States. According to the FBI, during the past seven years those two groups have been responsible for more than 600 criminal acts and $43 million in damages.

Sounds like she'll get on well with other friends of Obama, like unrepentant anti-U.S. terrorist Bill Ayers.

ABC Predicts End of the World by 2100, Asks for Public for Supporting Video

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:59 AM

In a desperate attempt to get someone to take the global warming farce seriously, ABC will be airing a two-hour broadcast entitled Earth 2100, devoted to hyping the hysterical claim that human civilization won't last 92 years unless we submit to totalitarian moonbattery within the next several years.

The idea is to frighten children of all ages with unlikely scenarios that will allegedly result from not abandoning modern civilization for the medieval totalitarianism envisioned by the liberal elite. We will face famine, war, disease, drought, flood, et cetera ad nauseam if we don't repent of our consumerist, individualist ways by 2015 at the absolute latest. Viewers will be asked to believe that these dire if imaginary fates would be even worse than the poverty and state slavery global warming hoaxers are attempting to impose.

Apparently running low on apocalyptic material, the propagandists at ABC are actually asking the public to send in short videos depicting our impending decline and fall as a species if we don't start drinking the Kool-Aid.

Ironically, the harder moonbats attempt to exploit their control of the media to ram the hoax down our throats, the less likely people are to take them seriously on this issue — or any other.

Al Qaeda Terrorist's Anchor Baby Works for Obama

DHS officials are laboriously attempting to deport al Qaeda bigwig Mohammed Al-Churbaji for a second time. The Syrian national has been living in Ann Arbor, planting terrorist anchor babies that make it even harder to get rid of him.

One is his son Mohamed Salim Al-Churbaji, a student at the moonbat-infested University of Michigan. Like Nancy Pelosi, Salim has been making trips to the terror state Syria. Unsurprisingly, he's a fundraiser and organizer for the Obama campaign.

Yet Another Downside to Socialized Medicine

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:07 AM

Under socialized medicine, the state helps itself to more than just your money:

France may have to reconsider its medical definition of death after a heart-attack victim came alive in the operating theatre as doctors were about to remove his organs for transplant.
The patient, whose identity has not been revealed, recovered after a long period in intensive care and is now able to walk and talk.
The 45-year-old man owes his life to the fact that surgeons authorised to remove organs for transplant operations were not immediately available. Under experimental rules adopted in France last year, to make more organ transplants possible, the man had already reached the point where he could be officially regarded as dead.

The important thing to remember, after Dems have managed to impose socialized medicine over here, is that if you check into a hospital and the state harvests your organs even before it's managed to kill you, it's all for the greater good. There's no use complaining; after all, the only things that are certain are death and taxes — at least where socialized medicine is concerned.

9th Circus Judge Alex Kozinski Maintained Obscene Website

Posted by Dave Blount at 7:11 AM

Not all circuses are suitable for children. An example is the famously liberal 9th U.S. Circus Court of Appeals, where the trial of a hard-core pornographer has detoured into an investigation of the obscene materials posted online by judge Alex Kozinski.

The computerized cache included a picture of two nude women on all fours painted to look like cows, images of masturbation, a video of a bare-bottomed man being pursued by a sexually aroused donkey and a slide show featuring a striptease with a transsexual.

Kozinski claims he didn't know his website was accessible to Internet surfers. No matter: only Congress can fire circuit judges, and these days it's controlled by his fellow moonbats.

But he might have to step down from the case of Ira Isaacs, "who is charged with obscenity for selling movies depicting bestiality and fetishes involving feces and urination."

Dead Rise to Register as Democrats

Maybe there's some truth to that voodoo stuff. Dead Democrats are rising from the dead to vote in Louisiana:

Secretary of State Jay Dardenne said Tuesday he will meet today with a Democrat-affiliated group responsible for a voter registration effort that is inundating East Baton Rouge and other parish registrars with bogus and incomplete applications. […]
Two cards received in Caddo Parish had George W. Bush as the voter applicant with a 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. address in Shreveport, Dardenne said. Other cards have been filed for prisoners who cannot vote and dead people.

Strange that the Louisiana versions of George W. Bush were registered by Democrats.

Obama Opponent Confesses to Racism

The Dem-controlled media will try its best to convince us that anyone who doesn't vote for Barack O'Bigot is a racist. Kudos to Bookworm for coming clean. When Bookworm votes against Obama,

• It won't be because Obama wants to withdraw from Iraq, which I think will weaken America's interests beyond repair, it will be because I'm a racist.
• It won't be because Obama thinks that a nuclear Iran is no threat to the Western World, it will be because I'm a racist.
• It won't be because I think it's an incredibly stupid idea for the most powerful nation in the world to approach evil totalitarian dictators as a supplicant, it will be because I'm a racist.
• It won't be because I hate the idea of a President who will subordinate America's interests to the UN (as he inevitably will), it will be because I'm a racist.
• It won't be because Obama has the thinnest resume ever in the history of Presidential candidates, it will be because I'm a racist.
• It won't be because I think Obama's Leftist connections (Ayres, Dohrn, Soros, Pfleger, Wright, etc.) show him to be either stupid about or complicit with an agenda antithetical to basic American values, it will be because I'm a racist.
• It won't be because Obama consistently chooses as advisers people who have opted for the wrong side in the completely binary debate about Israel's right to exist, it will be because I'm a racist.
• It won't be because Obama wants to socialize American medicine, which I believe will destroy the high quality of medical care available to most Americans, it will be because I'm a racist.
• It won't be because Obama wants to gut the military and reduce us to a nation with a big target painted on our collective backside, it will be because I'm a racist.
• It won't be because Obama wants to gut the Second Amendment and destroy Americans' Constitutional right to protect themselves from foreign and domestic enemies, it will be because I'm a racist.
• It won't be because Obama has already announced loud and clear that he will support activist judges who place their "feelings" above the law, it will be because I'm a racist.
• It won't be because Obama supports judicial decisions creating a right to gay marriage, when I think that decision is one for the voters, it will be because I'm a racist.
• It won't be because Obama's announced that he will dramatically increase taxes, putting the slow, inflexible, ill-informed government in charge of what should be a quick-reacting, knowledgeable marketplace, it will be because I'm a racist.
• It won't be because Obama's record in the Senate (albeit short and undistinguished) has been so liberal he makes Teddy Kennedy look like a reactionary, it will be because I'm a racist.
• It won't be because Obama's an open-borders kind of guy, it will be because I'm a racist.
• It won't be because Obama has shown himself to be a scarily slow thinker and speaker when released from the teleprompter (which really doesn't bode well for those cozy private chats with Ahmadinejad, Jong-Il, and Assad), it will be because I'm a racist.
• It won't be because Obama's wife clearly loathes America and everything it stands for, despite the fact that she's done pretty well out of it, it will be because I'm a racist.
• It won't be because Obama was affiliated for more than 20 years with a church that preached white hatred and began to care only when it looked as if it would affect his campaign, it will be because I'm a racist.
• It won't be because Obama was good buddies with Tony Rezko, and other sleazy characters (showing again that Obama was complicit or a singularly bad judgment of character), it will be because I'm a racist.
• It won't be because Obama's a compulsive liar who clearly thinks we in the public are too stupid to catch up with his lies, it will be because I'm a racist.
• It won't be because Obama's campaign has proven to be fly-paper for every two bit troofer and anti-Semite in America, it will be because I'm a racist.
• It won't be because Obama's promised already to start down the totalitarian path of purging his predecessors through criminal prosecutions, it will be because I'm a racist.

Not to worry, Bookworm. I'm sure that under an Obama Administration, the government will have special programs to cure you of your racism.

Environmentist Explosives

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:12 AM

These days you can greenwash anything — even explosives:

New explosives could be more powerful and safer to handle than TNT and other conventional explosives and would also be more environmentally friendly.
TNT, RDX and other explosives commonly used in military and industrial applications often generate toxic gases upon detonation that pollute the environment. Moreover, the explosives themselves are toxic and can find their way into the environment due to incomplete detonation and as unexploded ordnance. […]
To make safer, more environmentally friendly explosives, scientists in Germany turned to a recently explored class of materials called tetrazoles. These derive most of their explosive energy from nitrogen instead of carbon as TNT and others do.

I hope the human extinction movement doesn't find out about this.

Why Moonbats Hate Cars

Posted by Dave Blount at 7:58 AM

Now I get why liberals hate cars so much that their prophet Al Gore denounced the internal combustion engine as the greatest threat in the history of mankind. The obsession with extravagantly expensive light rail boondoggles is starting to make sense too. Terence Jeffrey explains:

No device is more in keeping with the American spirit than the automobile. Privately owned cars and trucks allow us to go where we want, when want. They are freedom machines.
Still, some liberals would like to use government to force Americans out of their cars. They believe in socialized transportation, not free-market transportation.
In a free-market transportation system, a person purchases his own vehicle with his own money, buys his own gas with his own money and can drive his vehicle anywhere there is a road — and, if he has the right kind of vehicle, some places where there are no roads.

In contrast,

In a socialist transportation system, the government takes the taxpayers' money and purchases vehicles — often buses or trains — for itself or a government-funded agency. Where and when these vehicles go is determined by the government.

This helps explain why bureaucrats have been pushing gas prices through the ceiling with their excessive taxes and restrictions on drilling and building refineries.

Artificially suppressing the oil supply is the most significant method government is using today to move people from a free market transportation system into a socialized transportation system.
In May, the Department of Interior estimated that U.S. territory contains about 139 billion barrels of undiscovered oil resources, much of it (85.9 billion barrels) off our coasts on the Outer Continental Shelf. Development of most of this oil is either forbidden or effectively prevented by federal laws and regulations.
Also in May, when the Federal Highway Administration released its monthly report on "Traffic Volume Trends," it revealed that Americans had driven 4.3 percent fewer miles in March 2008 than they had in March 2007. This was the fifth month in a row that Americans had driven fewer miles than they had in the same month the previous year.

In light of all this, Obama's recent admission that he approves of gas prices going up, but only wishes they wouldn't shoot up so fast that voters get mad, almost makes sense. Our self-induced problems aren't quite incomprehensible, once you become sufficiently cynical.

Canada Apologizes for Attempting to Assimilate Indians

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:51 PM

In a speech shameful enough to be hyped by AP as "historic," allegedly conservative Canadian PM Stephen Harper all but crawled on his knees as he cringingly apologized to Indians for Canada's attempts to assimilate them into modern civilization.

Like other kids, Indian children have been forced to go to school. Once this was called opportunity. Now it is a crime against multiculturalism. Much better if they were left to shiver in teepees — or to drink themselves to death in taxpayer-financed trailer parks.

Bleated Harper:

The government of Canada now recognizes that it was wrong to forcibly remove children from their homes and we apologize. We now recognize that it was wrong to separate children from rich and vibrant cultures and traditions, and that it created a void in many lives and communities and we apologize.

Australian PM Kevin Rudd — who at least has the excuse of being a liberal — made a similar apology for attempts to draw Aborigines out of the Stone Age and into Australian culture. But not even Crudd is offering financial compensation to those oppressed by assimilation, like Canada is doing.

Imagine if the West had always been dominated by sniveling moonbats, too ashamed of their own culture to want to see it prevail. Canada and Australia would still be populated by savages running around barefoot, bashing each other's heads in with rocks.

Vegan Diet Deforms Little Girl's Spine

Posted by Dave Blount at 1:59 PM

As we've seen, raising children as vegans isn't just moonbatty; it's unethical. More evidence:

A girl of 12 brought up by her parents on a strict vegan diet has been admitted to hospital with a degenerative bone condition said to have left her with the spine of an 80-year-old.
Doctors are under pressure to report the couple, from Glasgow, to police and social workers amid concerns her health and welfare may have been neglected in pursuit of their beliefs.
The youngster, fed on a strict meat- and dairy-free diet from birth, is being treated at the city's Royal Hospital for Sick Children. She is said to have a severe form of rickets and to have suffered a number of fractured bones. The condition is caused by a lack of vitamin D, which is needed to absorb calcium and is found in liver, oily fish and dairy produce.

The parents are "well-known figures in Glasgow's vegan community." As nutrition and dietetics professor Tom Sanders of King's College London comments:

Some of them think we're still monkeys that can live on fruit and nuts.

But it may take a few generations, or should I say degenerations, before moonbats can actually subsist as the lower primates they emulate.

At least the poor kid didn't die of malnutrition.

Rancher Wins Claim against Forest Service Thugs

Posted by Dave Blount at 9:19 AM

At last a little good news:

A judge awarded more than $4.2 million to a late Nevada rancher's estate after finding that the U.S. Forest Service engaged in an unconstitutional "taking" of water rights out of hostility to the rancher, a property rights activist.

Wayne Hage bought the Pine Creek Ranch in central Nevada in 1978. Forest Service goons soon began to harass him about his federal grazing permit, which they eventually canceled. U.S. Court of Federal Claims Judge Loren Smith ruled that this violated the Fifth Amendment clause against expropriating property without just compensation.

The government had demanded that Hage maintain ditches using only hand tools, so that he was unable to irrigate his 7,000-acre ranch.

Next, moonbats might decide that General Motors has to make cars using only plastic tools from Fisher-Price.

Unfortunately Hage didn't live to savor his victory; he died two years ago. Having theoretically infinite financial resources, the government might appeal.

McCain Vows to Crack Down on Free Enterprise

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:41 AM

Obama must be a communist, if he's to the left of John McCain. A sample of McLame's socialist rhetoric from a conference in DC yesterday:

For too long, government has been the voice of big business. Even when very large businesses violate their trust, they seem to be held to a different standard — getting away with conduct that would leave any small-business owner broke.

Apparently the Sarbox albatross isn't punishment enough for wicked capitalists — not when McMaverick needs to distinguish himself from W by stressing his hostility to economic freedom.

Resorting to demagoguery that would have made socialist thugs like Mussolini proud, McAmnesty denounced the "extravagant" salaries and severance packages of executives in the financial sector — never mind that they are paid voluntarily, not with money extracted by force like all the $trillions acquired by the government.

True, it's hard to take anything politicians say seriously during a campaign, and McCain does want shareholders rather than Nancy Pelosi et al. to determine salaries. But then comes this:

Sen. John McCain praised Mayor Bloomberg yesterday — talking up Hizzoner as a strong candidate for governor and refusing to rule him out as a vice presidential candidate.

The quintessential RINO Bloomberg temporarily masqueraded as a Republican to run against the juvenile, ultra-Left wackos infesting NYC's Democrat Party. Only slightly less of a leftist himself, before long Bloomberg renounced his temporary Republican status, as he set about smothering the city with environmental fanaticism and ludicrous nanny state fascism.

Even considering an authoritarian moonbat like Bloomberg for VP would be about as reassuring to the Republican Party's conservative base as choosing open-borders advocate Juan Hernandez — former spokesman for the Mexican government on illegal immigration issues — to be his Hispanic outreach director.

Child Porn Exploited to Regulate Online Content

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:06 AM

More ominous safety: bureaucrats are protecting us from online kiddie porn, terrorism supporters, and "racial hatred." France is the latest to announce that service providers have been pressured into blocking access to "offending sites," which will be flagged by users.

A similar deal was announced yesterday in New York, where Verizon, Sprint, and Time Warner are cooperating with state officials to block child porn.

Not many people are in favor of child porn, which makes it perfectly suited to serving as the thin edge of the wedge of Internet censorship. An emphasis on blocking flagged content, rather than chasing down illegal pornographers, allows for the short hop to banning "racial hatred." Any site to the right of Daily Kos might be flagged by moonbats as promoting racial hatred; the term essentially means "unappealing to moonbats." Even cutting taxes and resisting terrorism have been characterized as racist.

Rupert Everett Calls Soldiers Wimps

Publicly homosexual actor Rupert Everett has declared the British soldiers fighting terrorists on his behalf in Iraq and Afghanistan to be "whining wimps."

Opines Rupert:

They are always whining about the dangers of being killed. Oh my God, they are such wimps now! The whole point of being in the Army is wanting to get killed, wanting to test yourself to the limits. Now you have to fly 15,000ft above the war zone to avoid getting hit. I don't think there is any point in having wars if that's how you're going to behave. It's pathetic. All this whining!

There's more:

The whole point of being in the Army is going to war and getting yourself blown up. That and p***ing on prisoners. Yet we all get shocked by Abu Ghraib. But that's war. If you don't like that side of it, don't do it. Of course soldiers are going to p*** on the first prisoners they take. It goes with the territory.

Similarly, what goes with the territory with entertainment types is anti-Americanism. Everett accuses Americans of being "whiny victims," apparently because some of us resent 9/11 and want to prevent it from happening again. We're told we have gotten "very blobby as a nation."

Everett has relatives who earned the Victoria Cross. His own father is a retired major. This gives an idea of how fast Britons are degenerating under their regime of ubiquitous moonbattery.

There was a time when heroes spoke for society. Now the lowest scum speaks, denouncing the heroes. The rot that creates creatures like Rupert Everett has destroyed a great nation in only a couple of generations. If we let it happen to us, we really will go blobby.

PETA Campaigns to Inflict Horrific Death on Sheep

But PETA moonbats are unwilling to wait. They have threatened to hold their breath until they turn blue, pound the floor with their fists, and organize a boycott of Australian wool unless the operation ends immediately.

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:10 PM

As Ernest Christian and Gary Robbins point out, we are not exactly getting our money's worth from Big Government:

[T]he government says that the tax burden will be $2.6 trillion in 2008. But counting the "deadweight" loss from damage done by taxes to the private economy, the real tax burden is twice that — roughly $5.2 trillion, according to various estimates, including ones published by the National Bureau of Economic Research and the Congressional Budget Office. On the spending side, a study by the Office of Management and Budget showed that government programs on average fall 39% short of meeting their goals. Thus, in 2008, government will spend $2.7 trillion to provide $1.65 trillion of benefit.
A real tax burden of $5.2 trillion to pay for a $1.65 trillion benefit seems a bit excessive, even by Washington standards.

They ought to feel grateful we receive any benefit at all. The cost of the recently defeated Lieberman-Warner global warming bill would have been exorbitant, and it would have provided no benefit whatsoever. Look forward to a similar bill appearing next year, when there will be someone in the White House foolish enough to sign it.

School Paper Features Burning Old Glory

Shasta High School in Redding, California won't be publishing a student paper next year, thanks to outrage over an editorial supporting flag burning that included a front-page photo of Old Glory going up in flames.

Gas Prices Producing Resistance to Global Warming Lunacy

Posted by Dave Blount at 4:12 PM

There is one good thing about the soaring gas prices our government has created with its environmentalist moonbattery: they have prevented even more moonbattery from being imposed — at least for now.

Last week, the Senate debated and cast aside the Lieberman-Warner Climate Security Act of 2008, named for Sen. Joseph Lieberman, I-Conn., and John Warner, R-Va., who drafted the initial version of the legislation. The bill would have required the U.S. to cut greenhouse gas emissions almost 70% below current levels between 2012 and 2050.
The timing of the debate couldn't have been worse for supporters. Opponents of the bill took advantage of soaring energy prices and numerous cost estimates for the bill to argue against imposing mandatory economy-wide emissions cuts. In the end, this "landmark" legislation, as supporters dubbed it, became a victim of $4 a gallon gasoline. […]
Supporters acknowledged that the bill "will have a profound impact on the economy" and "will cost money," but pointed to the creation of new jobs in the renewable energy sector and a reduction in the consumption of costly fossil fuels that are expected to stem from the bill as evidence that it would be good for the economy.

By making gasoline unaffordable, the government will reduce fossil fuel consumption, thereby saving us money. Ingenious.

Energy costs and economic downturns are real. Global warming and "new jobs in the renewable energy sector" are not real. Politicians may not be able to make this distinction, but the people who elect them can.

Unfortunately the White House will be infested with moonbats no matter how things go in November, the presidential election having been lost by conservatives the day McCain got the nomination. But there's still hope for a Congress sane enough not to engineer a depression to please the Sierra Club.

Columbia Professor Blames USA for Execution of Homosexuals in Muslim Countries

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:57 AM

The Weekly Standard reports on the moonbattery prevailing among the Middle Eastern Studies faculty at Columbia University. The department that hosts Obama's PLO buddy Rashid Khalidi is also home to professor Joseph Massad:

In Desiring Arabs, Massad asserts that the West "produces homosexuals as well as gays and lesbians, where they do not exist." But for colonialism, Massad contends, there would be no gay people in the Middle East for the tyrannical governments of Egypt and Iran to persecute. Although Massad says he opposes hanging gay people, he shifts the blame from the hooded executioners to the United States.
When Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad visited Columbia last fall and made a similar claim ("In Iran, we don't have homosexuals like in your country."), students laughed and booed. They recently, however, elected to award Massad the Lionel Trilling Book Award for making the nearly identical claim.

Hey, what do you expect for only $36,997 per year tuition?

Canadian Pastor Ordered to Renounce His Faith

Posted by Dave Blount at 7:42 AM

In politically correct Canada, a Christian pastor has essentially been ordered to renounce his faith:

In a decision handed down just days ago in the penalty phase of the quasi-judicial proceedings run by the Alberta Human Rights Tribunal, evangelical pastor Stephen Boisson was banned from expressing his biblical perspective of homosexuality and ordered to pay $5,000 for "damages for pain and suffering" as well as apologize to the activist who complained of being hurt. […]
Boisson had written a letter to the editor of his local Red Deer newspaper in 2002 denouncing the advance of homosexual activism as "wicked" and stating: "Children as young as five and six years of age are being subjected to psychologically and physiologically damaging pro-homosexual literature and guidance in the public school system; all under the fraudulent guise of equal rights."

Comments Ezra Levant, an author who has been targeted by Canada's absurd yet frightening Human Rights Commissions:

[The] government now believes that if it can't convince a Christian pastor that he's wrong, it will just order him to condemn himself? Other than tribunals in Stalin's Soviet Union and Mao's China, where is this Orwellian "order" considered to be justice?
This is like a Third World jail-house confession — where accused criminals are forced to sign false statements of guilt. We don't even "order" murderers to apologize to their victims' families. Because we know that a forced apology is meaningless. But not if your point is to degrade Christian pastors.

Adds Pete Vere of the Catholic Exchange:

In essence, the Alberta Human Rights Tribunal is ordering […] the minister to renounce his Christian faith, since his opposition to homosexuality is based upon the Judeo-Christian Bible.

By imposing on Canadians a grotesque parody of a society, liberals are proving that freedom can be handed to you on only a temporary basis. Sooner or later, you will have to fight for it.

Dems Still Trying to Impeach W

Dems had better hurry; they've only got seven months to impeach W before he leaves office on his own. They still haven't come up with any serious grounds, but that won't stop Dennis Kucinich. Barks Bob Fertik of

We've waited seven years to find one Member of Congress brave enough to stand up for our Constitution, for which generations of Americans have fought and died. We are thrilled and honored that Dennis Kucinich has chosen to be that one genuine patriot. We congratulate him on his historic leadership, and pledge to do everything in our power to persuade Congress to adopt all 35 Articles and put George W. Bush on trial before the Senate of the United States, exactly as the Founding Fathers wanted.

Wow, even the Founding Fathers wanted W impeached for fighting terrorists!

In a typical example of Democrat projection, Fertik frets that Bush will use his power to grant illegitimate pardons, like a less scrupulous president who actually was impeached.

More alarming than Kucinich's burlesque act is the possibility that a victory by today's Dems would reduce the USA to a banana republic in which once you leave office you are thrown in jail.

Bureauweenies Act to Protect Crabs from Stress

In accordance with their philosophy of letting no activity go unregulated, British bureauweenies have wasted £200 on leaflets instructing kids on how crabbing must be performed.

The authorities have determined the maximum number of crabs that can be put in a bucket, how often the water in the bucket must be changed, where the bucket must be placed, et cetera. The 10,000 leaflets were printed after pointy-headed experts at Cambridge University declared that being overcrowded in buckets could cause crabs stress.

Maryland Textbooks to Feature Dumbed Down, Pro-Islamic Propaganda

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:11 AM

How generous of America to propagandize on behalf of the enemies trying to destroy it:

A textbook monitoring group said that Maryland middle and high school students will be required to read about Islamic teachings that have been dumbed down and are products of political correctness.
According to the New York Examiner, a new report issued by the American Textbook Council said that administrators who approved books for use in the Montgomery County school district caved into pressure by pro-Islamic groups seeking to present a less violent interpretation of Islam.
Gilbert Sewall, director of the council, stated that, for example, the definition of jihad has gone through "amazing cultural reorchestration" in textbooks, losing any connotation of violence, the Examiner wrote.
Other terms, such as sharia law, have been adjusted or removed from lessons to avoid what he called "inconvenient truths."

The lefties running our schools would be the first to lose their heads under an Islamic regime. But apparently they still regard any enemy of our civilization to be their friend.

State Bureaucrats Grow Fat on Gas Tax

Posted by Dave Blount at 6:33 AM

If greedy socialist thugs really want to use high gas prices as a pretext to seize "windfall" profits, they might start by looting themselves — at both the federal and state levels:

The average state sales tax on gasoline is 28.6 cents a gallon, according to the American Petroleum Institute. That's a dime more than the federal gasoline tax of 18.4 cents a gallon.

In some states the tax is tied to the price you pay at the pump, driving the take ever upward:

California, which has the highest gas tax in the nation according to a survey by the American Petroleum Institute, would rake in $5 billion this year if the price at the pump remains at $4 a gallon. That's more than double the $2.1 billion the state took in gasoline tax revenue in 2003, state revenue officials said.

Despite his Big Government proclivities and hostility to a sane energy policy, McCain is at least calling for federal gas tax relief. But even further to the left, B. Hussein calls tax relief a gimmick.

Meanwhile, oil companies are still not allowed to avail themselves of the plentiful American reserves that could make gasoline affordable again, if only we could get the bureaucrats out of the way.

Judge Julian Hall of Oxford Crown Court has refused to recommend deportation for illegal immigrant Nurul Islam, who has admitted to ten counts of inflicting sexual acts on a child, on the grounds that Hall does not find him dangerous.

No Slacker Left Behind

Posted by Dave Blount at 12:33 PM

The concept of "no child left behind" has reached a new extreme of pernicious absurdity in North Carolina's moonbatty Chapel Hill-Carrboro school district, which is considering making 61 the lowest possible grade students could receive — even if they turn in a blank test.

Explains educrat Sherri Martin:

There is little or no evidence that repeated failure makes people more responsible.

Therefore, they should be given a passing grade even if they do nothing. Also proposed is a 20% limit on how much homework can count toward a final grade, so that students' grades won't suffer unduly if they refuse to do any. Students will also be given more time to make up incomplete assignments, should they find a reason to bother.

More from Martin:

Getting a bad grade or having a bad day does not mean you are a failure. This is about hope.

It's also about change — changing America into a second-rate country by assuring the next generation does not receive an education.

Here's an idea for educrats: Instead of setting a floor for all students, why not take points from the students who study hard, and give them to those who slack off? That's what the government does with our money. The term for it is Social Justice.

Obama the Totalitarian "Lightworker"

Posted by Dave Blount at 2:28 PM

You had to figure that the San Franfreakshow Comical's Mark Morford — the quintessential left-wing bigot — would be a fan of someone who would earn the sobriquet Barack O'Bigot. But Morford's slavish worship of the empty skin Dems have chosen as their affirmative action nominee would embarrass even Chris Matthews.

Slobbers Morford:

Barack Obama isn't really one of us. Not in the normal way, anyway. […] No, it's not merely his youthful vigor, or handsomeness, or even inspiring rhetoric. It is not fresh ideas or cool charisma or the fact that a black president will be historic and revolutionary in about a thousand different ways. It is something more. Even Bill Clinton, with all his effortless, winking charm, didn't have what Obama has, which is a sort of powerful luminosity, a unique high-vibration integrity.

What? But it gets worse:

Many spiritually advanced people I know (not coweringly religious, mind you, but deeply spiritual) identify Obama as a Lightworker, that rare kind of attuned being who has the ability to lead us not merely to new foreign policies or health care plans or whatnot, but who can actually help usher in a new way of being on the planet, of relating and connecting and engaging with this bizarre earthly experiment. These kinds of people actually help us evolve. They are philosophers and peacemakers of a very high order, and they speak not just to reason or emotion, but to the soul.

Shovel down through the flaky B.S. to Morford's core message, and it's just what Obama's nasty wife has been screaming:

[O'Bigot] is going to demand that you shed your cynicism. That you put down your divisions. That you come out of your isolation, that you move out of your comfort zones. That you push yourselves to be better. And that you engage. Barack will never allow you to go back to your lives as usual, uninvolved, uninformed.

They don't want a president. They want a totalitarian dictator, who will remake every aspect of human existence in accordance with coercive moonbattery — a cross between Stalin and the Antichrist.

Moonbats will be disappointed to learn that Obama is not the Antichrist, or even Stalin, but just a mediocre left-wing kook who has been aggressively marketed by an increasingly radical media establishment that picked him for his Muslim name and skin color.

Seattle Parks and Recreation may push the envelope of environmentalist absurdity over the edge by banning bonfires on the grounds they could cause global warming.

From a memo to the park board from staff:

The overall policy question for the Board is whether it is good policy for Seattle Parks to continue public beach fires when the carbon … emissions produced by thousands of beach fires per year contributes to global warming.

Grown adults, presumably walking around unmedicated, actually believe that bonfires on the beach will heat up the planet. It's getting scary out there.

What if we just told these 21st century savages that they can avert global warming by wearing green on Thursdays, or maybe by shaking a bone at the sun? That would leave the rest of us free to go about our business.

Moonbats Reject "Middle Class" Education

Posted by Dave Blount at 7:42 AM

Marriage isn't the only fundamental institution that moonbats have been systematically dismantling. John White embodies what they've been using their hegemony to do to education.

A professor of the philosophy of education and advisor to the British government, White believes that students should not study academic subjects, but be taught things like civic responsibility and saving energy.

According to White, ministers are already "moving in the right direction." But they must go farther, because traditional subjects are "mere stepping stones to wealth" — and the liberal holy grail of social justice can only be accomplished when everyone is poor.

Teaching math, history, science, English, etc. has been an attempt to impose bourgeois values, says White, who avers that this has "alienated many youngsters, especially from disadvantaged backgrounds." We certainly wouldn't want to offer disadvantaged youngsters an opportunity to escape from poverty if that could mean alienating them.

As White makes crystal clear, the liberal objective is to dismantle education, so that our civilization may die out with the current generation, to be replaced with ignorant peasants who cannot feed themselves without government assistance, who cannot do math or find Italy on a map, and who have been made to believe that poverty is good and global warming is real.

Kiwis Fight Global Warming with Flatulence Vaccine

Posted by Dave Blount at 7:09 AM

One of the reasons that a mentally retarded child should be able to figure out that global warming is a hoax is that animal flatulence is said to be a major cause. This implies that there were more animals in the 80s and 90s, when temperatures rose slightly, than before or since. Nonetheless, New Zealand scientists are hard at work on the imaginary problem:

Methane pumped out the backsides of New Zealand's 45 million sheep and 10 million cattle helps make the tiny country a bigger per-capita climate culprit than notoriously polluted China, reports the Times of London.
So it was with great pride Wednesday that Phil Goff, the Kiwi trade minister, told a Paris meeting of the Organization for Economic Co-Operation and Development that the genome of the microbe responsible for all that methane had been isolated.
That would pave the way for a vaccine against bovine flatulence, he added, according to the Daily Telegraph.

There is a slight downside:

Of course, because those same gassy bacteria also give sheep, cattle and their kin the ability to digest grass and hay, the vaccine could just cause mass livestock starvation.

But as leftists like to say, you can't make an omelet without breaking some eggs.

Times Building Climbers Cancel Each Other

In separate incidents, two people tried to climb up the outside of the New York Times building today. One was Alain Robert, who has made a career out of similar stunts. But this time, he did it for a purpose even higher than his lust for attention, as he announced in a press release:

I am climbing with my bare hands, as a PEACEFUL way to create support for far greater and urgent action from world leaders on global warming. Greenhouse gas emissions are still climbing. So am I!!!

A few hours after Robert's gesture in support of the increasingly alarming cult of environmentalism was interrupted by police, another guy started climbing the building in a Malaria No More shirt.

Malaria would be no more if it weren't for environmentalists. DDT had pretty much done away with it, until Rachel Carson came out with the propagandistic diatribe Silent Spring, said to inspire the Goracle himself. Now use of DDT — which has been described as the most beneficial substance ever devised — is almost totally suppressed. The result has been the unnecessary deaths of hundreds of thousands of Third World children, who have been sacrificed on the altar of the phony religion that Robert pretended to climb the Times building for.

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:28 PM

The War on Christmas grinds on, even in June:

AMSTERDAM, 06/06/08 - Amsterdam municipal transport company (GVB) bus-drivers and tram personnel cannot celebrate Christmas any more. GVB is axing the event to please Muslims, newspaper de Telegraaf suggested yesterday.
Personnel association VTN has been told by GVB management that "the multicultural representation of the colleagues at the Christmas party is too one-sided." Supposedly, GVB meant to say that only white GVB staffs have been attending the annual event organised by management in the past years. It has therefore halted its financial contribution to the Christmas party.
"We have a limited budget and want to organise something that is intended for everyone," said GVB spokeswoman Brit Wijkniet. "Perhaps a New Year drinks party."

Someone needs to tell Brit that alcohol will be the next thing to go after Christmas.

Global Warming Hoaxers Fly from All Over to Discuss Carbon Tax on Airline Tickets

Posted by Dave Blount at 9:27 AM

As global temperatures plummet, hundreds of useless bureaucrats continue to spew fortunately harmless carbon emissions as they jet around the globe to attend climate change circle jerks, where they plot ways to expropriate our money and curtail our freedoms in the name of the nonexistent global warming crisis.

There are eight more international meetings already scheduled after the farce taking place in Bonn, to which 2,400 bureauweenies have flown in from 172 countries to discuss a "carbon tax" on airline tickets.

They won't have to pay the tax on their own tickets, any more than they pay for the tickets themselves. That's what we taxpayers are for.

Nanny State Moonbattery Stunts Children's Development

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:57 AM

Nanny State moonbattery is having its intended effect: reducing humans to soft, squishy things incapable of thinking for themselves:

Our health and safety culture is producing a generation of 'bland' children who do not know how to evaluate risks, a headmaster has warned.
Jonathan Hughes-D'Aeth said that pupils' development was being "stifled".
He told a conference of independent school heads in London about an incident last year where two children assumed that it must be safe to leap into the sea from a harbour wall — because there were no warning signs.
He said: "They exemplify a generation of young children who have not been given the chance to evaluate for themselves the risks of the dangers which are around them."

Rather than learning a lesson from minor bumps and scrapes, children are taught by their parasitical parents to whimper and snivel in court in exchange for someone else's money.

Norwich Union experts have said a U.S.-style compensation culture is sweeping through Britain. Parents were now less likely to accept minor injuries to their children — such as cuts, grazes and bruises — as accidents and instead sued for personal injury, they said.

Wandering off education's moonbat reservation, Hughes-D'Aeth observes,

If we take drowning as an example, the best form of protection is actually to teach children how to swim, not putting up large numbers of notices banning swimming. Systems themselves do not create safety. Competent people do.

However, self-reliant, competent people are a threat to authorities, so they are being systematically eliminated in favor of cowardly, unthinking, bovine farm animals that can be bred for votes — which might explain idiocy like this:

• Children at Cummersdale Primary School in Carlisle were told to wear goggles when playing conkers
• Youngsters taking beach donkey rides in Bogor Regis were told to wear hard hats
• Councillors in Bristol ordered 100 yew trees next to a playground to be chopped down in case children poison themselves by eating the leaves
• Three swings at Great Somerford in Wiltshire were taken down because they were slightly too high under EU regulations
• Derby City Council told schools to cancel trips in sunny weather in case the pupils were sunburned
A future human, protected and safe.

U.N. Calls on Us to Kick the Habit of Existing

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:16 AM

Carbon dioxide is a trace but essential element in our atmosphere. The more CO2, the healthier Earth's plant life, the basis of our food supply. Fortunately, animals generate this precious gas every time they exhale, and literally all human activities produce CO2. Yet totalitarian moonbats who take us for morons have declared it to be a pollutant and even a drug.

The latest rhetoric from the U.N.'s Goofball-in-Chief Ban Ki-Moonbat makes W's "addiction to oil" idiocy sound almost sane by comparison:

"Our world is in the grip of a dangerous carbon habit," Ban said in a statement to mark World Environment Day, which is being marked by events around the globe and hosted by the New Zealand city of Wellington.
"Addiction is a terrible thing. It consumes and controls us, makes us deny important truths and blinds us to the consequences of our actions," he said in the speech to reinforce this year's World Environment Day theme of "CO2 Kick the Habit."

All human activity is the equivalent of drug addiction. If we were good citizens of the world, we wouldn't just die, we would will ourselves out of existence, so as not to leave behind corpses releasing still more C02.

Good thing liberals are on hand to absolve us of our carbon sins through taxation and regulation.

Like the rest of the liberal elite, Ki-Moonbat thinks we're morons.

Judge Marcia Cooke Continues to Coddle Terrorists

Posted by Dave Blount at 7:43 AM

To get an idea of the insanity in store for us if B. Hussein Obama gets to pick judges, consider some of the nutcases appointed even by Bush — terrorist-pampering U.S. District Judge Marcia Cooke, for example.

Currently Judge Kook is holding up the transfer of convicted terrorist Kifah Wael Jayyousi to a maximum security unit in Terre Haute, Indiana, because his communications would be closely monitored and visitors limited. This would interfere with his ability to conduct terror operations from behind bars (à la Omar Abdel-Rahman), and — according to some of the moonbats running our legal system — violate his "rights." Why a district judge in Florida thinks she can dictate the conditions at federal prisons in Indiana is anyone's guess.

Jayyousi was convicted together with the Dirty Bomber Jose Padilla. Earlier, Judge Kook rejected prosectors' demands for harsh punishment for Padilla, and exploited the case as an opportunity to denounce his supposed harsh treatment, whimpering on his behalf that he had been held without a Koran or entertainment opportunities.

Padilla wanted to set off a radioactive bomb in an American city. But evidence of that couldn't be presented in the circus environment of a normal criminal court, probably because it was classified. The trained al Qaeda killer could be free to continue his terrorist activities in less than 13 years.

Welcome to the future of the War on Terror. Both Obama and McCain have promised to close Club Gitmo, so that all terrorists can be treated to mollycoddling at exorbitant taxpayer expense by moonbats like Judge Kook.

Your family's safety could lie in Judge Kook's hands.

Gun Pendant Threat Averted

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:18 PM

Another dangerous weapon has been confiscated by airport security. G.I. Joe's rifle and an armed cartoon robot were bad enough, but PhD student Marnina Norys actually attempted to board a plane in British Columbia with this around her neck:


She tried removing the menacing pendant and stuffing it in her bag, but that wasn't good enough for security personnel at the airport in Kelowna. Ms. Norys was compelled to check the necklace in storage under the plane, which arrived safely at its destination, thanks to security's diligence.

If only Norys had been wearing a hijab, she probably could have gotten through security with a live grenade.

Whites Blamed for Africa's Self-Induced Misery

Posted by Dave Blount at 11:35 AM

Jacques Diouf, Director General of the U.N.'s Food and Agriculture Organization, has been denouncing the West for the fact that Africans are too sunk in moonbattery to feed themselves. Listen to him rail:

No one understands… how over-consumption by obese people in the [Western] world costs $20 billion each year.

The media is only too happy to help him convince the gullible that Africans are starving because fat white people snatch the food from their mouths. Check out this pair of pictures from


That's some powerful propaganda. Now here's a picture that tells the real story:


These are William and Annette Rogers, who were assaulted, whipped, and shot after Robert Mugabe supporters gave them two minutes to leave their property in Zimbabwe. Their story is both harrowing and common among the white farmers who have not yet managed to escape this formerly civilized country.

Their farm will now belong to thugs of the proper skin color. Instead of producing food, it will be taken over by weeds, as the U.N. and its media toadies point the finger at Caucasian children for eating too much cotton candy.

Meanwhile, Mugabe is in Rome at the invitation of Jacque Doofus's FAO, despite having been formally forbidden to travel in Europe as a result of his criminal conduct as Zimbabwe's socialist dictator. At a previous U.N. food conference, Mugabe boasted that his policy of stealing farms from white people was going to increase the former Breadbasket of Africa's food supply. Now people are starving there, the country's money is worthless, and Mugabe has been using foreign food aid as a political weapon.

In related news, racist socialist Barack Obama has the Democrat nomination sewn up.

Bishop Gordon Mursell Compares Hoax Deniers to Josef Fritzl

Posted by Dave Blount at 9:29 AM

Barack Obama's longtime friends Jeremiah Wright and Michael Pfleger don't have a monopoly on spewing unhinged moonbattery from the pulpit. Reverend Gordon Mursell, Bishop of Stafford in the leftist cult that blasphemously refers to itself as the Church of England, incongruously compares those unwilling to be duped by the global warming hoax to the fiendish Josef Fritzl.

Fritzl was recently arrested after breeding a large captive family with his own daughter in a dungeon under his house. What that has to do with refusing to drink the climate change Kool-Aid, only a moonbat could explain. Rev. Mursell gives it a try, screeching that by hesitating to plunge the world into a depression and turn over totalitarian control to the government in the name of a discredited hoax,

We are in effect locking our children and grandchildren into a world with no future and throwing away the key.

The global warming farce would seem to have as little to do with religion as it does with Josef Fritzl. But as Jill Kirby of the Centre for Policy Studies observes,

Climate change has achieved the status of an alternative religion.

Having lost faith in Christ, the Church of England retains its belief in the Devil — defined as anyone who does not conform to establishment ideology. Sociology professor Frank Furedi of Kent University explains:

Focusing on the current anxieties about the future of the planet is a fruitful way of rediscovering Satan. Demonologists in pre-modern times argued that scepticism about witchcraft was a form of heresy that had to be punished. Now, scepticism towards the received wisdom on global warming, or on public health issues such as AIDS, is described as "denial." Denial has been transformed into a generic evil. History shows that crusades against heretics and demons have a nasty habit of disorienting society and undermining civilized and humanist behavior.

Only the positive aspects of Christianity are being rotted out of existence by liberalism. The dark side that brought us witch-burnings and the Inquisition is alive and well and fashionably green.

Studies Find Conservatives Are More Honest

Posted by Dave Blount at 6:48 AM

This shouldn't surprise many people. According to a Pew Research poll, the liberals who relentlessly advocate higher taxes are three times more likely than conservatives to think it's okay to cheat when paying them. They are more than twice as likely to excuse getting paid under the table so as to keep collecting unemployment benefits. Liberals also have less of a problem with shoplifting and buying stolen goods.

A study published in the Journal of Legal Tax Research confirms that liberals take tax evasion less seriously. One in the Journal of Business Ethics found that conservatives have "higher levels of ethical values." Another in the same journal found that liberals are more likely to cheat, plagiarize, and let others take the blame for their ethical lapses. The Journal of Psychology found a link between liberal political views and "lying in your own self-interest."

Peter Schweitzer blames this not on liberals being bad people, but on them having been corrupted by a bad ideology:

Modern liberalism is infused with idea that truth is relative. Surveys consistently show this. And if truth is relative, it also must follow that honesty is subjective.
Sixties organizer Saul Alinsky, who both Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton say inspired and influenced them, once said the effective political advocate "doesn't have a fixed truth; truth to him is relative and changing, everything to him is relative and changing. He is a political relativist."

What's wrong with cheating and lying when reality is whatever we find it convenient to pretend it is?

The choice isn't so much between right and left, as between right and wrong. Yet again we see that liberalism is the ideology of decline.

Compact Fluorescents: Congressionally Mandated Environmental Menace

Posted by Dave Blount at 9:14 PM

Perversely yet unsurprisingly, the overpriced curlicue light bulbs that Congress is mandating, allegedly for the sake of the environment, contain enough mercury to be environmentally ruinous. Here's what the EPA says to do when one inevitably breaks:

Before Clean-up: Air Out the Room
• Have people and pets leave the room, and don't let anyone walk through the breakage area on their way out.
• Open a window and leave the room for 15 minutes or more.
• Shut off the central forced-air heating/air conditioning system, if you have one.
Clean-Up Steps for Hard Surfaces
• Carefully scoop up glass pieces and powder using stiff paper or cardboard and place them in a glass jar with metal lid (such as a canning jar) or in a sealed plastic bag.
• Use sticky tape, such as duct tape, to pick up any remaining small glass fragments and powder.
• Wipe the area clean with damp paper towels or disposable wet wipes. Place towels in the glass jar or plastic bag.
• Do not use a vacuum or broom to clean up the broken bulb on hard surfaces.
Clean-up Steps for Carpeting or Rug
• Carefully pick up glass fragments and place them in a glass jar with metal lid (such as a canning jar) or in a sealed plastic bag.
• Use sticky tape, such as duct tape, to pick up any remaining small glass fragments and powder.
• If vacuuming is needed after all visible materials are removed, vacuum the area where the bulb was broken.
• Remove the vacuum bag (or empty and wipe the canister), and put the bag or vacuum debris in a sealed plastic bag.
Clean-up Steps for Clothing, Bedding and Other Soft Materials
• If clothing or bedding materials come in direct contact with broken glass or mercury-containing powder from inside the bulb that may stick to the fabric, the clothing or bedding should be thrown away. Do not wash such clothing or bedding because mercury fragments in the clothing may contaminate the machine and/or pollute sewage.
• You can, however, wash clothing or other materials that have been exposed to the mercury vapor from a broken CFL, such as the clothing you are wearing when you cleaned up the broken CFL, as long as that clothing has not come into direct contact with the materials from the broken bulb.
• If shoes come into direct contact with broken glass or mercury-containing powder from the bulb, wipe them off with damp paper towels or disposable wet wipes. Place the towels or wipes in a glass jar or plastic bag for disposal.
Disposal of Clean-up Materials
• Immediately place all clean-up materials outdoors in a trash container or protected area for the next normal trash pickup.
• Wash your hands after disposing of the jars or plastic bags containing clean-up materials.
• Check with your local or state government about disposal requirements in your specific area. Some states do not allow such trash disposal. Instead, they require that broken and unbroken mercury-containing bulbs be taken to a local recycling center.
Future Cleaning of Carpeting or Rug: Air Out the Room During and After Vacuuming
• The next several times you vacuum, shut off the central forced-air heating/air conditioning system and open a window before vacuuming.
• Keep the central heating/air conditioning system shut off and the window open for at least 15 minutes after vacuuming is completed.

That's a lot of work for a broken light bulb. But whatever you do, don't call in the authorities to help. That's been known to cost as much as $2,000.

As John Lott points out, eventually you'll need to get rid of the bulb even if it doesn't break — which will happen all the sooner if you don't leave it on for at least 15 minutes at a time. Unless you own your own biohazard disposal service, you'll be tempted to throw it in the trash, where it will shatter, either in the bin or in a garbage truck, exposing sanitation workers to the dangerous mercury. But if the unnecessary toxic waste gives them mercury poisoning, at least they can take solace in knowing it's all for the sacred cause of the environment.

Once light bulbs represented good ideas.

Socialized Medicine Update

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:37 PM

Just so no one loses track of what's in store for us when Democrats seize complete control of Washington, here's a little update on the state of socialized medicine in Britain:

A 86-year-old woman was forced to sit in agony for eight hours at a flagship hospital because staff were too busy to treat her.
Barbara Norman was admitted to Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital by her GP after being ill for weeks.
But when the distressed pensioner arrived she was told there was no bed available, despite the fact she was in a lot of pain and barely conscious.
Her distraught daughter, Wendy Norman, 46, said her mother was 'almost passing out' by the time she was seen.
It emerged the pensioner had a urinary tract infection and two kidney stones.

But on the positive side, there's equality. Medical care stinks for one and all — except people who are really important. Plus it's free — unless you count the exorbitant taxation.

PETA Proposes Lobster Empathy Center

Posted by Dave Blount at 1:27 PM

The moonbats of PETA have inoculated themselves from ridicule by pushing self-parody to the last extreme:

SKOWHEGAN, Maine — People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals has sent a proposal to the Somerset County commissioners to lease their jail for the world’s first Lobster Empathy Center. […]
"A prison is the perfect setting to demonstrate how lobsters suffer when they are caught in traps or confined to cramped, filthy supermarket tanks," PETA wrote in a June 2 letter to the commissioners. "The center will teach visitors to have compassion for these interesting, sensitive animals while also commemorating the millions of lobsters who are ripped from their homes in the ocean off the coast of Maine each year before being boiled alive." […]
PETA said the center would feature interactive exhibits such as a human-size lobster trap where visitors can have their fingers wrapped in large rubber bands that will remain on for their entire visit.
"At that point, visitors can be moved to a small, filth-strewn glass tank where they will be crammed together and confined for up to an hour," the proposal states.

Sounds almost as fun as a ride on a New York subway.

Dirty Baths for Gaia

There's more that obedient moonbats can do for the sake of a sustainable society than eat bugs. For example, they can share dirty bath water.

Brigitte Bardot Convicted of Countermoonbattery

Obama's Church of Anti-Americanism Rakes in Tax Money

Posted by Dave Blount at 10:00 AM

Barack Obama's recently strategically disowned church, which he had been attending for 20 years, is famous not just for its hostility to Caucasians, but for its fiery denunciations of America. Long-term friends of Obama like Jeremiah Wright and Michael Pfleger are famous for drawing rousing applause by screaming "God damn America!" and "America is the greatest sin against God!"

All this hate must be directed against America's people, not its government, which has been extraordinarily generous toward Trinity United, having treated it to at least $15 million in federal grants.

Andrew Walsh of the Leonard E. Greenberg Center for the Study of Religion in Public Life with Trinity College in Hartford explains why there's no hypocrisy involved in Reverend Wrong's habit of biting the hand that feeds:

Wright believes things like the government-funded programs are a necessary compensation for the legacy of white racism, part of what's necessary to heal the wounds inflicted over four centuries on blacks.

I keep forgetting: white people are the racists, not the Black Liberation Theology maniacs screaming racial epithets from their tax-exempt and taxpayer-subsidized pulpits.

If the government is already extracting $millions from our paychecks to shower down upon the Reverend Wrights of the world, imagine what it will be like with Obama as President. Race-based "churches" may be the only sector of the economy that will actually grow.

Inalienable Right to Bestiality Found in Declaration of Independence

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:36 AM

Homosexuals and transsexuals have made such impressive gains lately, some have moved on to the next phase of the plan to reduce civilization to a freak show that would shock the most depraved denizens of hell. Next up: establishing the "inalienable right" to have sex with animals:

Frank Kameny, a hero to the homosexual community who was integral in pressuring the American Psychiatric Association to reclassify same-sex activities as "normal," has written to a pro-family organization that he believes bestiality is fine, "as long as the animal doesn't mind."

According to Kameny:

Absolutely indisputably a central part of the very definition of Americanism is the guarantee, found in the Declaration of Independence, as not merely a Right, but as an Inalienable Right, of the "Pursuit of Happiness." If something which someone arbitrarily defines as a "sexual perversion" provides happiness for consenting adult participants, then its enjoyment is enshrined in basic Americanism.

Why not have sex with animals? After all, animals are people too.

Kameny's contributions to mainstreaming homosexuality have been officially consecrated by our moonbat masters. His "Gay is Good" slogan from the 1960s is enshrined as a sacred artifact at the National Museum of American History.

If Kameny lives long enough, he might move on to mainstreaming pedophilia and necrophilia. What's next after that, only moonbats could imagine.

British Bureaucrats Help Carve Out Muslim No-Go Areas

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:03 AM

Appallingly, the quislings running Britain are officially assisting Muslim colonists in carving out no-go areas from which Christians must stay away. The Telegraph reports on a demented new Home Office scheme:

The plan includes a suggestion that local councils should map their areas religion, surveying and recording the faiths and denominations of local residents.
New guidelines for councils say: "A deeper understanding of local communities should be developed to help inform and focus the programme of action — this may include mapping denominational backgrounds and demographic and socio-economic factors."

In light of this, it's not so surprising that authorities recently threatened Christian evangelists with arrest and with getting "beaten up" if they don't stay out of a Muslim no-go area in Birmingham.

The new plan also calls for dealing with Islamic radicals by offering them therapy and counseling, and hoping they don't blow up any buses or subways, instead of by arresting and deporting them.

Britain may as well just get it over with and put the Muslims in charge, instead of their dhimmified flunkies.

Democratic Underground Calls for Citizen's Arrests of Political Opponents

Posted by Dave Blount at 7:33 AM

Remember the recent farce when the Guardian's George Monbiot made a spectacle of himself by pretending he was going to subject John Bolton to a citizen's arrest for being a "war criminal"? If the kooks at Democratic Underground have their way, we'll be subjected to more tasteless entertainment along the same lines.

DUmmies are advised not to announce they're coming before pouncing on their quarry, and to refer to for information as to when suitable victims might show up in their towns.

There follows a long list of "war criminals," along with their alleged crimes, mostly having to do with being mean to terrorist murderers or the genocidal dictator Saddam Hussein. Some are household names like Condoleezza Rice and Colin Powell, but others are relatively obscure lawyers whom moonbats feel should be intimidated as punishment for offering legal counsel to conservatives.

Cue the Mission Impossible music. Your mission, moonbats, should you choose to accept it:

Form a team. We need teams in California, Texas, New York, and Washington, D.C., among other places. Your mission is to locate a war criminal from the list above in a public place, detain them, handcuff them, phone the police, read the criminal their rights and the charges against them, ask them if they have anything to say in response, videotape the arrest and post it online. Your team should include one or more people who can produce an excellent video and be extremely fast in editing and posting it online. Your team should include people capable of physically detaining your war criminal. Your team should ideally include a lawyer. And, of course, people who can read the charges and question the suspect. Everyone on your team should be able to keep a secret while you're planning your arrest.

Some verbiage lifted from Wikipedia is posted in a preemptive attempt to ward off charges of kidnapping, assault, false imprisonment, etc.

These clowns certainly provide some laughs with their adolescent fantasies of handcuffing those who don't share their wacky views. But they would be a lot less funny if the government were run by fellow moonbats, who through benign neglect or active nurturing might develop them into the brownshirts of our liberal fascist future.

Will Moonbats Make Us Eat Bugs?

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:53 PM

In a perfect progressive world, everything would be either forbidden or mandatory. After meat becomes illegal on the grounds that it's supposedly unhealthy and cow flatulence is a greenhouse gas, what will our Nanny State masters demand we eat instead? Here's an idea:

Some insects in their dried form are said to have twice the protein of raw meat and fish, while others are rich in unsaturated fat and contain important vitamins and minerals. Experts believe they could one day be marketed as a healthy alternative to fatty snacks. […] Earlier this year the Food and Agriculture Organisation held a conference to discuss how entomophagy — eating insects as food — could contribute to sustainable development.

Eating bugs also provides an alternative to using environmentally incorrect pesticides.

Our best hope is that some European commission discovers that insects have human rights before they start turning up on school lunch menus.

Girls' Locker Rooms Declared Open to Perverts in Colorado

Posted by Dave Blount at 2:09 PM

Political correctness is a pervert's wet dream. To pander to the tiny but extremely aggressive transsexual lobby, Colorado has eliminated gender-specific restrooms and locker rooms throughout the state in the name of eliminating "discrimination" against transgendered weirdos. Now sexual predators need only say they feel like women inside to avail themselves of private female facilities.

James Dobson elaborates:

Henceforth, every woman and little girl will have to fear that a predator, bisexual, cross-dresser or even a homosexual or heterosexual male might walk in and relieve himself in their presence. The legislation lists every conceivable type of organization to which this law applies, including restaurants, bathhouses, massage parlors, mortuaries, theaters and "public facilities of any kind." Those who would attempt to protect females from this intrusion are subject to a fine of up to $5,000 and up to one year behind bars. This is your government in action.

Once again we see that when liberals say "tolerance," what they mean is ramming depravity down the throats of the innocent.

Pelosi Credits Iran for Progress in Iraq

Posted by Dave Blount at 11:58 AM

Even now, Nancy Pelosi steadfastly refuses to acknowledge the success of the surge. Yet the improved situation in Iraq is undeniable. Pelousy skillfully bypasses this fact by crediting not the American troops fighting to preserve democracy or even pro-democracy forces in Iraq, but Iran, the major backer of the terrorists they've been fighting.

Here she goes:

Well, the purpose of the surge was to provide a secure space, a time for the political change to occur to accomplish the reconciliation. That didn't happen. Whatever the military success, and progress that may have been made, the surge didn't accomplish its goal. And some of the success of the surge is that the goodwill of the Iranians — they decided in Basra when the fighting would end, they negotiated that cessation of hostilities — the Iranians.

This transcription comes via Abe Greenwald, who comments:

This is an inexcusable slander. Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki brought the Sadrists militias to their knees in a month-long battle that enabled Iraq's largest Sunni bloc to rejoin the government. Furthermore, when Pelosi met with Prime Minister al-Maliki in Mosul she sang quite a different tune. She had "welcomed Iraq's progress in passing a budget as well as oil legislation, and a bill paving the way for the provincial elections in the fall that are expected to more equitably redistribute power among local officials," and stated, "We're assured the elections will happen here, they will be transparent, they will be inclusive and they will take Iraq closer to the reconciliation we all want it to have."
Discounting the success of the American military, denying the accomplishments of U.S. allies, and giving the credit to our most dangerous enemies seems like an especially productive week for a Democrat on Capitol Hill. After Nancy Pelosi's post-Iraq hat trick, there's really no need for Barack Obama to make this trip after all.

Let's hope Mad Mahmoud Ahmadinejad appreciates her propaganda efforts on Iran's behalf. He will most certainly owe our whole country thanks if we let Democrats retake the White House, paving the way for Pelousy et al. to advance a foreign policy that puts the Iranian terror state's interests ahead of our own.

Iran has friends in alarmingly high places.

Michelle Obama Denounces Whitey

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:53 AM

Though still unconfirmed, the persistent rumors that recordings have been made of Michelle Obama denouncing "Whitey" are becoming ever more concrete. MyTownTalks even has a partial transcript:

Once again, the white man keeps us down, what's up with Whitey, Why'd he attack Iraq, Why'd he let Katrina happen, Why'd he leave millions of children behind. This is the legacy the white man gives us.

Whitey is so evil, he not only oppresses genocidal socialist dictators, he even causes bad weather. What won't Whitey do to keep the rest of the world down?

This does sound like something the affirmative action Ivy League millionaire would screech to the applause of her husband's mindless swarms of roach-like supporters.

Putting militant bigots in charge would be a change, all right.

Crackdown on Christian Proselytizing

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:09 AM

Just in case moonbat clergy like Rowan Williams are unsuccessful at causing Christianity to rot to death from within, authorities have been cracking down on Christian proselytizing.

In Iraq:

A U.S. Marine handed out coins promoting Christianity to Muslims in the former insurgent stronghold of Fallujah, outraged Sunni officials said Friday. The U.S. military responded quickly, removing a trooper from duty pending an investigation.

The offensive coins are printed on one side with the question, "Where will you spend eternity?" On the other is printed a verse from the New Testament:

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3:16.

A certain Marine is in very big trouble for this outrage.

Meanwhile, in Britainistan:

A police community support officer ordered two Christian preachers to stop handing out gospel leaflets in a predominantly Muslim area of Birmingham. The evangelists say they were threatened with arrest for committing a "hate crime" and were told they risked being beaten up if they returned. The incident will fuel fears that "no-go areas" for Christians are emerging in British towns and cities…

God forbid anyone turn away from the bloodthirsty terror cult of Islam toward Christianity.

Muslims owe the liberal establishment big time for repressing Christianity, creating a spiritual vacuum for Islam to fill. Unfortunately for moonbats, they are unlikely to receive much gratitude once Muslims have gained the upper hand.

Christianity banned
A sign of the times.

Gay Day at Disney World

Posted by Dave Blount at 7:45 AM

If you think nothing could be more family-oriented than Disney World, think again:

June 7 is the day when thousands of homosexuals and lesbians [and] transgenders will converge on the Magic Kingdom in Orlando, Florida, to basically demonstrate their passions, their lifestyles in front of a captive audience of tens of thousands of children and unsuspecting parents and families who will go to that theme park and have no idea what they're going to experience that day.

Gay Day displays for the kiddies have included homosexuals kissing and groping each other. As one Gay Day patron proclaims:

We need to be seen in the heart of America's playground.

Apparently moonbats believe that innate revulsion for homosexuality can be overcome by immersing children in the lifestyle before they know enough to be disgusted.

Not recommended for children — or adults either.

Anti-Gun Activist Knifed to Death

Posted by Dave Blount at 7:14 AM

When liberals have accomplished their goal of effectively repealing the Second Amendment, we'll be more than ever at the mercy of the government, but at least we'll be safe from each other, right? Wrong, obviously.

In Britain, where moonbats aren't encumbered by the pesky Second Amendment, anti-gun campaigner Pat Regan has been found stabbed to death in her apartment. Too bad she didn't have a gun; she might have been able to defend herself.

Mrs. Regan started the Leeds branch of Mothers Against Guns after her son Danny was shot. Her grandson has been arrested for stabbing her.

In a world with guns, 53-year-old grandmothers like Pat Regan have a chance. In a world with only knives, not so much. When knives are banned, and it comes down to fists and blunt objects, they'll really be in trouble.

Airport Authorities Disarm G.I. Joe and Cartoon Robot

Posted by Dave Blount at 6:49 AM

Maybe our descent into totalitarian moonbattery is all an elaborate joke, intended to make a point about the perils of political correctness. This couldn't possibly be for real:

A doll caused a security alert at an American airport because its two-inch plastic gun was considered a dangerous weapon. Judy Powell, 55, from Walton on the Hill, Surrey, bought the GI Joe toy in Las Vegas and packed it in her hand luggage. But security staff at Los Angeles International Airport refused to let Mrs Powell on board the plane with the replica rifle.

At least Mrs. Powell still has her sense of humor:

I was simply stunned when I realized they were serious. Security examined the toy as if it was going to shoot them and looked at the rifle. I was really angry to start with because of the absurdity of the situation. But then I saw the funny side of it and thought this was simple lunacy.

A grim spokesman for LAX was less inclined to levity:

We have instructions to confiscate anything that looks like a weapon or a replica. If GI Joe was carrying a replica then it had to be taken from him.

Meanwhile, across the pond:

Brad Jayakody, 30, from London, said he was stopped from passing through security at Heathrow's Terminal 5 after his Transformers T-shirt was deemed "offensive."

The shirt featured a cartoon robot holding a gun. Jayakody was forced to remove it.

You would think authorities would focus on young Muslims with scraggly beards and ticking luggage. But that would be racial profiling. Imposing moonbattery appears to be more the point than security.

G.I. Joe had to be disarmed.

Obama Throws Entire Church under the Bus

Posted by Dave Blount at 9:00 PM

It wasn't so long ago that Barack Obama said of the unhinged racist demagogue Jeremiah Wright:

I can no more disown him than I can disown the black community. I can no more disown him than I can my white grandmother…

In the same breath he went on to denounce the white grandmother as a racist, artfully deflecting the blame onto Caucasians as always.

But this was before Obama was alerted that not all white people are latte liberals who hate their own guts for having pale skin. Now he has disowned not only Reverend Wrong, who has retired anyway, but his entire church, after attending it for 20 years.

Via Michelle Malkin, here he is trying to spin his betrayal of the demented racist cult that calls itself Trinity United Church of Christ:

Characteristically, BHO drips with self-pity as he praises scum like Wright and guest bigot Michael Pfleger, and complains about voters who fail to be too dim to realize that the views expressed by the people he has spent his entire adult life around might reflect the opinions lurking behind his meaningless rhetoric about "hope" and "change."

Maybe he thinks this will stop people from digging into taxpayer money he may have funneled toward maniacs like Pfleger in return for their support. I would hate for this to be the first time Obama wasn't wrong.

It may soon get even more crowded under that bus, if the rumored video of his nasty wife denouncing "whitey" comes to the surface.

Carter's Second Term

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:06 PM

Some optimists have suggested that a McCain presidency would be like a third term for W. If only. Bad as Bush 43 has been, it could be worse — much worse, as this bumper sticker reminds us:


Many voters are too young to remember the days of President Malaise. This explains Obama's dependence on the youth vote.

Even Moonbats Disgusted by McClellan's Profiteering

Posted by Dave Blount at 12:56 PM

Possibly the most thoroughly contemptible person currently infesting our political scene is former White House Press Secretary Scott McClellan. A floundering mediocrity, McClellan was kept on his position longer than he should have been, apparently due to Bush's famous loyalty. This loyalty has been repaid with a nasty book denouncing W in exchange for profit.

Normally Mr. Nice Guy, Bob Dole couldn't contain his contempt:

There are miserable creatures like you in every administration who don’t have the guts to speak up or quit if there are disagreements with the boss or colleagues. No, your type soaks up the benefits of power, revels in the limelight for years, then quits, and spurred on by greed, cashes in with a scathing critique.

Even the kooks at, though unhinged by their hatred of the President, are disgusted that McClellan will make a fortune for being a perfidious insect. They're calling on him to turn over his profits to veterans of the wars he supported but now denounces.

Then there's this from former DNC head Terry McAuliffe:

I find it abhorrent the way these people come out and write books about their boss. It made 'em money, it made 'em prestige, it gave them all this power and then they turn around and slap 'em. I don't care who it is — Democrat, Republican — it's wrong.

Too bad for McClellan if he thought his Benedict Arnold act would turn him into a hero on the Left. But at least he still gets all the money.

Now even Terry McAwful has someone to look down on.

Machine Invented to Remove CO2 from the Air

Posted by Dave Blount at 12:27 PM

What if CO2 really were harmful? Even if environmentalists managed to bring all human activity to a halt, animals would continue to emit it, just like they've been doing for millions of years, dooming us all to catastrophic climate change. The only way to stop CO2 from being emitted would be to end life on Earth. A machine that would take it out of the air would save the world, right?

Yet now that physicist Klaus Lackner has invented a machine that does just that, environmentalists apparently aren't very relieved that the planet has been rescued:

The idea is bound to be controversial, with environmentalists seeing so-called technological solutions to global warming as undermining attempts to promote greener lifestyles and industries.

There you have it: imposing "greener lifestyles" and hamstringing industry are the objectives, not limiting harmless CO2.

Lackner proposes that the CO2 collected by his device be pumped into greenhouses to boost plant growth. Here's an idea: how about just leaving it in the air to boost plant growth?

Next they'll invent a machine to take oxygen out of the air.

John Cusack, War Profiteer

Posted by Dave Blount at 12:19 PM

Could it be that according to his own moonbatty ideology, Tinseltown limousine Leninist John Cusack belongs in jail? After all, he is a war profiteer, who has been making a career lately out of exploiting liberal opposition to winning the war in Iraq. La Times reader Steven Zak comments on Cusack's latest displays of moonbattery:

From the safety of his stateside home, John Cusack has made a movie to mock people like Blackwater contractors who, at great personal risk, provide a service to their country in time of war ["Cusack Goes to War," by Tina Daunt, May 23]. Since they get paid, he considers them "war profiteers" who "should be sent to prison." How infantile.
Yes, people rise to provide needed goods and services in wartime; it doesn't follow that wars are started so such people can make a buck. That paranoid, Vietnam-era delusion aside, does Cusack really think it a crime for people to be paid for wartime labors? How about the soldiers who put their lives on the line? They're paid. Or farmers who grow food those soldiers consume? Or people who make the troops' boots and clothes? Or workers who build military vehicles? Or journalists who cover the war? Greedy war profiteers all? What patent nonsense.
But if you can't beat 'em, you join 'em. So, seizing the opportunity of war, Cusack offers a film he no doubt hopes will make a profit. Sure, war profiteers "can all go to hell." Except for Cusack, who ridicules them all — all the way to the bank.

Maybe instead of throwing him in jail the judge could just give him probation, with an injunction to keep his mouth shut unless he has something intelligent to say. But then for Cusack, that would be worse than jail.

No doubt a cutie like Cusack would make lots of friends in prison.
