Left Wing Liberal Finger Pointers

@ 07:31 PM (104 months, 13 days ago)
Recent events and the attempted use of them for political gain has show the desperation of the left. Even a 4 year old knows that the Republican party had no responsibility for the recent weather related disasters in this country. It is amazing that Hillary has not used this as a photo op to be shown driving a bus load of deprived individuals (her perceived constituency) away from the Texas and Louisiana coasts. Perhaps there is a connection with the extensive televsion coverage and the focus of that coverage to favor the liberal agenda. Exactly how much cash has Michael Moore, Cher and their ilk directly provided the disaster victims of all races and colors. It is not a stretch to think of the left attempting to tie the weather related disasers into the debate about Sandra Day O'Connor's replacement. Since when does the party who has been deemed the majority by the majority of voters in this country have to give slots to the minority to achieve 'balance'? Is this something the left would do? History shows the the left maximizes its aims to the exclusion of everything else when the left even smells power. CNN should be ashamed to pay Soledad O'brien and show her face on televsion. Don't even get me started on Katie Couric. Even Wolf Blitzer has more balance than those two women who luck has made wealthy. More to come on this topic in the coming days and weeks......

Katrina Observations

@ 08:05 PM (104 months, 14 days ago)
TV news is great!  If you only watched network TV, here's what you would have learned from watching the news during the last few weeks:


The hurricane only hit black family's property

New Orleans was devastated and no other city was affected by the hurricane

Mississippi is reported to have a tree blown down

New Orleans has no white people

The hurricane blew a limb off a tree in the yard of an
Alabama resident

When you are hungry after a hurricane steal a big screen TV

The hurricane did 23 billion dollars in improvements to
New Orleans: now the city is welfare, looters and gang free -- and they are in your city.

White folks don't make good news stories

Don't give thanks to the thousands that came to help rescue you, instead bitch because the government hasn't given you a debit card yet

Only black family members got separated in the hurricane rescue efforts

Ignore warnings to evacuate and the folks will come get you and give you money for being stupid

Bill Clinton can't understand why the royalty checks are not rolling in or is Hillary uh eating the profits?

@ 11:42 PM (104 months, 16 days ago)
A rubber company in China has begun marketing condoms under the brand names Clinton and Lewinsky, apparently seeking to exploit the White House affair that led to the impeachment of America's 42nd president.

Spokesman Liu Wenhua of the Guangzhou Rubber Group said the company was handing out 100,000 free Clinton and Lewinsky condoms as part of a promotion to raise consumer awareness of its new products.

He said that after the promotion ends, the Clinton condoms will go on sale in southern China for 29.8 Yuan ($3.72) for a box of 12, while the Lewinsky model will be priced at 18.8 Yuan ($2.35) for the same quantity.

"The Clinton condom will be the top of our line," he said. "The Lewinsky condom is not quite as good."

Liu said the company had chosen to use the Clinton name because consumers viewed the former president as a responsible person, who would want to stress safe sex as an effective way to prevent the spread of the HIV virus.

"The names we chose are symbols of people who are responsible and dedicated to their jobs," he said. "I believe Bill Clinton cannot be unhappy about this because he's a very generous man."

Liu said the company did not believe using the Clinton and Lewinsky names constituted a violation of copyright or other laws.

"We have received full approval from the local Industrial and Commercial Bureau to start production," he said.

Clinton has campaigned aggressively for heightened AIDS awareness in China, where the disease is spreading rapidly.

In impeachment proceedings conducted by the U.S. Senate in 1999, he was acquitted on charges of perjury and obstruction of justice. The charges stemmed from denials he made about a sexual relationship he maintained with Lewinsky, a former White House intern.

Apparently Hillary is the type of uh woman that appeals to certain crybaby californians or do we REALLY know if hillary IS a woman?

Using comedy as a serious political strategy, Hillary Clinton for president supporters announced this morning the launch of Bill-for-First-Lady.com, a campaign Web site featuring live-action comedy videos of a cross-dressing Bill Clinton wearing a pink skirt, matching high heels and a pink purse. The site's goal is to generate 1 million e-mails from Americans urging Hillary to run in 2008.

The Democratic Web site, which uses comedy to convey its message, has produced two Internet campaign commercials depicting Bill Clinton preparing for the First Lady role. The first, entitled "Boxers, Briefs or Thong?" shows Bill trying on skimpy pink lingerie - much to the shock of a flabbergasted saleswoman.

In "Men's Room?" Bill struggles to use a urinal while decked out in a pink skirt, high heels and uncooperative pantyhose. "Our campaign style is laugh-out-loud funny - but Hillary is a serious candidate and this is a serious strategy. Bill-for-First-Lady.com is here to beat Republicans to the punch and the punch line by making the inevitable 'Bill as First Lady' jokes old before they can hurt during the election. Cross-dressing humor crosses party lines and we're here to tickle the red states pink," said Campaign Manager Luke Montgomery.

"Hillary's not just a First Lady, she'll be the first lady president. Our goal is to get America ready for a man as 'First Lady' by joking now so voters are used to it in 2008. The Republican ridicule machine is geared up to go after Bill - we're disarming them and laughing with Bill, not at him," said Montgomery.

A campaign spokesperson includes "Bill" himself. Organizers are making available a comic Clinton voice impersonator for appearances on radio shows across the nation as part of the campaign.

Just in...the latest from the Reverend Jackson

The Reverend Jesse Jackson was holding a press conference

in the appliance department of a Sears store in Chicago

 He was there to protest the fact that all the washing machines were white. 

 So the clerk called the store manager, who asked,  

"What's the problem here, Reverend?" Jesse pointed  

at the machines and loudly bemoaned the fact that all 

of them were white. 

The manager replied, "Well, Reverend, it's true that  

all the washing machines are white, but if you'll open 

the lids, you'll see that all the agitators are black."

Cheese Cake Factory

@ 12:10 PM (104 months, 19 days ago)

 

It is hard to believe a place could be great after a two hour wait in a mall.  However the cheesecake factory was.  The food was scrumpious to say the least.  We had a party of nine and everybody had something, or a lot in my case, off of just about everybody's plate.  I had the lack of forethought to share an appetizer.  I was still full at the end of the day after I went.  The waitress fainted when I order the nine inch chocolate cake and passed over the twenty some cheescake selections.  I would go back again but only if guaranteed a longer wait.  What is the matter with the old fashioned concept of reservations anyway.  I hate these no reservation places that unfortunately are so good that you still go and wait anyway.

Ginsberg is Headed for the Nut House

@ 11:44 AM (104 months, 19 days ago)
Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg once argued that girls as young as twelve should be able to have sex with adult males, Sen. Lindsey Graham said Tuesday - while pledging to make an issue out of Ginsberg's radical philosophy during John Roberts' confirmation hearings.

"She argued that the age of consent for a woman should be twelve," Graham told ABC Radio host Sean Hannity.

"She wasn't representing clients," Graham noted about Ginsberg's endorsement of child sex. "She was writing an article about her own views."

Other radical left positions backed by Justice Ginsberg:

* The legalization of prostitution

* Coed prisons for men and women

* Argued that polygamy may be a constitutionally protected right

* Backed federal funding for abortion

Said Sen. Graham: "[She argued for] a lot of things that are so far out of the mainstream that if a conservative took her writings as a test, not her qualifications, she wouldn't have gotten one conservative vote," said Graham.

"She had personal views that I find just laughable - but she got 96 votes by the U.S. Senate," he added.

Graham said that if the Roberts' confirmation hearings grow more contentious: "I'm gonna paint Justice Ginsberg as being as far out of the mainstream as you can possibly get."

How Do You Tell the Difference between a Democrat, a Republican and a Southern Republican?

@ 11:41 AM (104 months, 19 days ago)

The answer can be found by posing the following question:

You're walking down a deserted street with your wife and two small children. Suddenly, an Islamic Terrorist with a huge knife comes around the corner, locks eyes with you, screams obscenities, praises Allah, raises the knife, and charges at you. You are carrying a Glock cal .40, and you are an expert shot.

You have mere seconds before he reaches you and your family.

What do you do?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Democrat's Answer:

Well, that's not enough information to answer the question!

Does the man look poor or oppressed?

Have I ever done anything to him that would inspire him to attack?

Could we run away?

What does my wife think?

What about the kids?

Could I possibly swing the gun like a club and knock the knife out of his hand?

What does the law say about this situation?

Does the Glock have appropriate safety built into it?

Why am I carrying a loaded gun anyway, and what kind of message does this send to society and to my children?

Is it possible he'd be happy with just killing me?

Does he definitely want to kill me, or would he be content just to wound me?

If I were to grab his knees and hold on, could my family get away while he was stabbing me?

Should I call 9-1-1?

Why is this street so deserted?

We need to raise taxes, have a paint and weed day and make this happier, healthier street that would discourage such behavior.

This is all so confusing!  I need to debate this with some friends for few days and try to come to a consensus.

Galen Hall Golf Club

@ 10:48 AM (104 months, 26 days ago)

 

This gem of a course is located west of Reading in Berks County.  I was lucky enough to be invited to a charity tournament up there yesterday and played with three wonderful guys.  The weather was beautiful, sunny mild not too hot.  One of the guys gave me some great putting tips.  For even while you do look at the green itself, also look at the surrounding terrain and which direction it is to the nearest water.  Despite what your eyes may tell you looking at the green, more often than not, the break will follow the overall terrain and be towards the water.  The same thing for the speed.  Yesterday the greens were slick and super fast as well as being hard as rocks. It was extremely difficult to even hit in front of the green roll on and stay on.  One of the guys bombed a drive 400 yards, not on the long drive hole of course.  He read the terrain perfectly and rolled a ton after landing.

Here is a Politician Whose Campaign is Headed for the Trash Pile

@ 10:40 AM (104 months, 27 days ago)

 

"Bill Gates sells the public defective products. And then expects us to spend years being his guinea pigs, while he corrects the myriad of defects and vulnerabilities in his defective code. This is mass consumer fraud. It is unacceptable corporate behavior. Over four (4) years after Windows XP was released I still receive regular 'updates' and 'bug fixes,' which reflect a product that was originally scandalously defective. ... Why should someone buy or 'upgrade' an inadequate computer on Bill Gates' say-so? The Committee to Fight Microsoft is launching a legal action effort to bar such practice, in advance, for Windows Vista. Bill Gates, you are on notice."

Employer Uses Alternative Labor Force

@ 10:34 AM (104 months, 27 days ago)

 

CSX recently hired several cannibals.

During the welcoming briefing, the Human Resources representative said, "You are all part of our 
 
team now. You get all the usual benefits and you can go to the snack machines or bring your lunch 
 
for something to eat, but please don't eat any of the other employees."

The cannibals promised they would not.

Four weeks later their boss remarked, "You're all working very hard, and I'm
quite satisfied with you. However, one of our dispatchers has disappeared.
Do any of you know what happened to her?"

The cannibals all shook their heads no.

After the boss had left, the leader of the cannibals said to the others,
"Which one of you idiots ate the dispatcher?"

A hand raised hesitantly, to which the leader of the cannibals continued,
"You fool!!! For four weeks we've been eating Managers and no one noticed
anything, but noooooooo, you had to go and eat someone important!"

The Saga of my Golf Playiing

@ 10:29 AM (104 months, 27 days ago)

 

Although I love to get out on the course, the lack of quality of my golf game is a serious problem.  A good way to describe my game is contained in the top ten things caddies have actually said to me (of course I did NOT tip the bastards - although one time I was so disgusted I gave on my entire bag of clubs - and no the replacements did NOT help one bit)

 #10 Golfer: "Think I'm going to drown myself in the lake."
Caddy: "Think you can keep your head down that long?"
#9 Golfer: "I'd move heaven and earth to break 100 on this course."
Caddy: "Try heaven, you've already moved most of the earth."
#8 Golfer: "Do you think my game is improving?"
Caddy: "Yes sir, you miss the ball much closer now."
#7 Golfer: "Do you think I can get there with a 5 iron?"
Caddy: "Eventually."
#6 Golfer: "You've got to be the worst caddy in the world."
Caddy: "I don't think so sir. That would be too much of a
coincidence."
#5 Golfer: "Please stop checking your watch all the time. It's too much
of a distraction."
Caddy: "It's not a watch - it's a compass."
#4 Golfer: "How do you like my game?"
Caddy: "Very good sir, but personally, I prefer golf."
#3 Golfer: "Do you think it's a sin to play on Sunday?
Caddy: "The way you play, sir, it's a sin on any day."
#2 Golfer: "This is the worst course I've ever played on."
Caddy: "This isn't the golf course. We left that an hour a go."
and the #1 best caddy comment:
#1 Golfer: "That can't be my ball, it's too old."
Caddy: "It's been a long time since we teed off, sir."

Hillary Clinton Proposes Katrina Tax Hike

2008 presidential candidate Hillary Clinton said Wednesday that she favors rolling back the Bush tax cuts to fund reconstruction efforts in New Orleans in the wake of Hurricane Katrina.

Asked where the money to rebuild the city should come from, Mrs. Clinton told NBC's "Today Show": "It comes from the first instance in not making those tax cuts for rich people like us permanent." "Let's get back to shared sacrifice," Clinton insisted, defending her tax hike plan. "Let's take care of each other. Let's plan for the future. Let's do what is necessary to put Americans first again."

Mrs. Clinton has consistently argued for a tax hike ever since she was elected to the Senate.

Last year she told a San Francisco audience: "We're going to take things away from you on behalf of the common good."

In 2003 Clinton argued for a tax hike to pay for the Iraq war.

In Nov. 2001, the former first lady blamed the 9/11 attacks on the Bush tax cuts, telling CNN: "If we hadn't passed the big tax cut last spring, that I believe undermined our fiscal responsibility and our ability to deal with this new threat of terrorism, we wouldn't be in the fix we're in today."

Apparently the geezer just had to die in the saddle wearing the infamous stripes.  I was beginning to worry the he would hang in there and the President would not get the opportunity to personally select the next Chief.  I have every confidence that the President will make a totally wise selection and not pander one inch to the Hillary's, Kerry's, Biden's, et al ad nauseum.  Imagine the news pressure on the President to select a middle of the road centrist (aka flaming liberal loser panty waisted no hearted pussy footing....you probably got the point by now).  This is the time for all true lovers of freedom and democracy to show they are totally behind the President and let the real majority of the country have a Chief Justice for decades to come who will do the right not the expedient aggrandizing Clintonlike thing.

Can you believe it?  Me at a ritzy place?  And I even MIGHT have word a jacket.  Elegant delicous food served in a delightful country setting.  Imagine nibbling a perfectly done filet complete with bernaise butter sauce and hearing the pleasant drifting piano music.  The flourless chocolate cake was as rich as Sam Walton.  Get this, a friend of mine planned his all as a surprise party for his wife's birthday.  A completely personally selected menu of four courses with his wife's name and happy birthday printed on the specialized menu.  The waitress even said I could take one home as a souvenir.  It all worked out great.  She got some lovely gifts and was so much the gracious birthday girl.
