More Democrats verses Republicans

This could almost be a game show or something, pointing out all of the instances of Democrats saying one thing but doing another and than showing Republicans just doing the right thing.

This latest example involved Barack Obama and John McCain. Barack talks a good game on equal pay but pays his female staff less then the boys whereas McCain actually pays the females on his staff better. It also does not hurt that he has more senior women on his staff where as Obama has maybe one senior woman on his staff. So much for diversity...

It is also pretty funny that Obama has more total staff then McCain and has managed to accomplish so much less. What does he do with the extra staff? I wonder if his female staff will be getting raises by the end of the week.

It does not appear to matter if the Democrat is Obama, Franken or Gore. They all seem to have the same play book, do as I say not as I do.

You mean to say substance matters?

To some at least...

For those voters, especially ones without college degrees, the fact that Sen. Obama is black may not be as much a disqualifier as his background as a Democrat from the Frost Belt with no national security or executive experience and a voting record judged by the nonpartisan National Journal as the Senate’s most liberal during 2007.

Wesley Clark

From one of my favorite articles, a profile of Clark: "Interviews with a wide variety of current and retired military officials reveal that Clark was disliked by only three groups: Those whom ranked above him in the chain of command whom he ignored, his peers at the same rank whom he lied to, and those serving beneath him whom he micromanaged. Other than that, everyone liked him."

Ba da bing

The Saddest Thing About Barack Obama's Available Military Expertise... that though he has Wes Clark in his corner, the only person he knows with the experience of getting a bomb on target is Bill Ayers.

eMail Joke: 2 Ways To Look At Things

My wife and I were sitting at a table at my high school reunion, and I kept staring at a drunken lady swigging her drink as she sat alone at a nearby table.

My wife asks, "Do you know her?"

"Yes," I sighed, "she's my old girlfriend. I understand she took to drinking right after we split up those many years ago, and I hear she hasn't been sober since."

"My God!" says my wife, "Who would think a person could go on celebrating that long?"

So you see, there really are 2 ways to look at everything.

Short term thinking

All of these examples are of the same type. Doing something in time to alleviate the problem results in the current situation never occurring and as such, there would have been no proof that it was the right decision. If we had started drilling for more oil in the places we can not today and as such oil prices did not get so high, no one would be given any credit for heading off a crisis. Instead we would be hearing about how we are destroying the wilderness for no good reason (not that environmentalists ever think there is a good reason).

It is like 9/11. Bush did something that a lot of people don't like and there has been no follow-on to 9/11 like what was expected but he gets no credit from the major quarters because "nothing has happened". On the other hand, had he done nothing and we had repeat attacks everyone would be yelling about how ineffective he is, which would have been true. Instead, he did do something and all is quite on the home front and he gets beat up for it.

Sanity and common sense in action

Judge Advises Crime Victim To Arm Herself After Attack Moon Says No Longer Possible For Police To Protect Citizens

As the (not so) old saying goes, "when seconds matter, the police are only minutes away".

The police no longer serve as much of a crime deterrent. There is no "cop on the beat" anymore. The police respond to incidents, they don't preempt much crime. Your protection is up to you.

No ice at the North Pole

Asinine article but a lot of really good comments.

This article is a travesty full of alarmist talk and poor research. It discusses the shrinking of the Arctic ice and blames the reduction of ice on global warming even though the recent year to year temperature evidence shows the earth is actually going through a cooling cycle. The article also completely ignores the recent evidence of active under water volcanoes in the Arctic that could easily account for the warmer water and ice reduction.

As one of the other commenters pointed out, Greenland did not get its name because everyone thought it would be a good joke. It used to be VERY green. It has been warm there before and it will be warm there again.

Another traitor in our midst

Scroll down and watch the video. Here is a representative of our country telling a witness in front of all the world that he (Bill Delahunt of Massachusetts) is glad that al Qaeda is watching and getting a chance to see the witness. Would it surprise you to know that Bill is a Democrat? It does not surprise me.

As John says "In a sane world, this would be a scandal..."

Well this world seems less and less sane all the time.

Coulter strikes oil

Liberals complain that -- as B. Hussein Obama put it -- there's "no way that allowing offshore drilling would lower gas prices right now. At best you are looking at five years or more down the road."

And where will we be five years from now if we don't start drilling?

Six long years ago President Bush had the foresight to demand that Congress allow drilling in a minuscule portion of the Alaska's barren, uninhabitable Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR). In 2002, Bush, Tom DeLay and the entire Republican Party were screaming from the rooftops: Drill! Drill! Drill!

We'd be gushing oil now -- except the Democrats stopped us from drilling.

It is funny how no one, media included remembers that fight or maybe it is not so much funny as collective liberal/media amnesia.

Guns are a feminist issue

I have to say I agree with Megan on this one and do not understand why NOW does not come down on the side of the 2nd Amendment for the sake of women. This is not a liberal/conservative issue but a self protection issue. On average, a woman will come out on the short-end in a straight up physical fight with a man. On average a man is bigger, stronger, has more upper body strength and is heavier. A handgun is just about the ideal equalizer in a fight and allows for a woman to not only protect her selves but protect her self at a distance. The best way to survive a physical confrontation is to never let it get to that point. Finally, despite what you might have read it the news papers, a person is NOT more likely to be injured or killed with their own firearm.

The fact that NOW is not pro-2nd amendment is just additional evidence that they are not a woman's rights group anymore but just a liberal political group.

Dr. NObama of energy

As Power Line notes: What Obama really stands for is managed decline--a government-supervised lowering of Americans' standards of living. (That would be your standard of living, of course, not his.) In this, he is Jimmy Carter redux.

Obama appears to be against anything that has a real chance of helping with this country's energy needs or with anything that might help reduce the consumer cost of gas. I still want one of these to get completely off the grid.

Some high-court sanity at last!

So it seems that 5 out of nine justices on the Supreme Court upheld the 2nd amendment right of the people to keep and bare arms. This is all very well and good and I am glad that it worked out this way. My question is how could 4 out of nine conclude that this was not the case? It says so right in the amendment and yet 4 out of the nine best(?) judges in the country could not plainly see this? I think this says a lot more about the politics of the court than of the legal interpretations of the case at hand.

Justice for victims of the U.N.?

Yet another example in a long string of such, showing the U.N. to be a morally and financially corrupt organization that has long since lost its direction and focus (if it ever really had any to begin with).

At Sbrenica, Dutch forces, operating as UN "peacekeepers" lured Bosniacs into areas which were claimed to be safe havens, disarmed the Bosniacs, and promised that the UN peacekeepers would protect the disarmed Bosniacs. When Serbs attacked, the Dutch peacekeepers (unlike peacekeepers guarding some other safe havens) fled, leaving the Bosniacs to be murdered.

It seems that U.N. "peacekeepers" are either running in fear, abandoning those they are supposed to protect or they are trafficking in child sex and slavery. When are we going to stop giving this group money?

Dog bites man, again

Israel closes Gaza crossings after rocket fire
Day of violence presents cease-fire with its first serious test

Palestinians violating a cease-fire truce, what a shocker...

Guess what party...

A debate on a Massachusetts version of Jessica's Law resulted in the following:

Rep. Fagan, a defense attorney, infuriated victims’ rights advocates during a recent House debate when he said he would “rip apart” 6-year-old victims on the witness stand and “make sure the rest of their life is ruined.”

In a fiery soliloquy on the House floor, Fagan said he’d grill victims so 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.”

Not once in the article did they state Fagan's party affiliation even though the party of Karyn Polito is mentioned. Karyn is the only other politician directly named in this article.

With a quick Google search I was able to turned up what the Boston Herald wasn't. I was also able to discover his full name. James H. Fagan, Party Affiliation - Democrat.

Every vote must count!

Even zombie votes! Apparently there are over 8,550 dead peaple still elajable to vote in Connecticut. In one extream case, a dead person has voted 17 times since leaving the land of the living.

Even with all of these facts in place, some still cling to the idea that there is no evidence of any election fraud.

Connecticut Secretary of State Susan Bysiewicz is adamant that “actually no dead people voted.”

“I want to be very clear about that,” she said, explaining that while votes were cast and counted in the names of the dead, “there was no voter fraud at all in the state of Connecticut.”

Officials elsewhere have confirmed other cases in which dead people appear to have voted.

In Washington State, Republican Dino Rossi ran for governor in 2004, and lost by only 133 votes. Officials confirmed that the names of 19 dead people somehow cast ballots.

I am willing to bet big money that the dead lean heavily democratic and as such is "no big deal" and in fact would explain much of the Democrats willingness to fight against any and all voter ID laws.

Barack Obama's plan to destroy America

It is unbelievable that he would say these things. It would be ludicrous if it were not so serious. This is the person that the left has selected to be the most powerful person in the world?

I have to wonder, does he sleep at night, in his house with his wife and children with the doors and windows unlocked and open? Does he have a sign in his front yard that says "no guns here"? I don't think so. So why does he want to do that to the entire country?

What was new is now old...

Sorry but this is just too funny! Bill Clinton complaining about MSM bias! His entire presidency was one big media love fest that he worked like a master conductor to the detriment of everyone and every thing that stood in the way of him and his wife. Now that the media has moved on the new and shiny and is treating him and Hillary like they treated EVERYONE ELSE, he gets a bit snitty. Just too funny!

The Community Based Reality

Paranoia strikes deep...

"One fourth of the population is retarded"

As a side note and it is hinted at, toward the end of the clip, a reporter talks about Obama getting a "fair shake" from red states during the primary, those are their people, their party. The Democrats always push the mime about conservatives and republicans being raciest but this entire primary season it has been Democrats voting for or against Obama, Democrats answering exit poles and Democrats worrying about if he is "black enough" or "too black". Not Republicans or conservatives. That fact just does not seem to be able to register with the MSM or they are willfully ignoring it?

Woman Calls Orem Police To Free Her From Her Locked Car

You have to love the headline over the accompanying photograph: "Trapped by Technology". No, I don't think so. I think a more appropriate title would have been "Trapped by stupidity!"

This sounds like the old joke where the man had to break his car window from the inside because he left his keys in the lock...
