Costa Concordia, Emblem of Socialist Europe

For the ultimate symbol of socialist Europe, look no further than the Costa Concordia:

costa-concordia

From Wikipedia:

In 2010, Costa Concordia provided the decadent setting for Jean-Luc Godard’s film Film Socialisme (in English: Socialism).

Socialism was so bad that not even the pretentious liberal elitists at The Guardian could stomach it.

If the ship symbolizes Europe’s socialist economy, the captain personifies its political leadership:

While the Costa Concordia cruise ship started to sink… while men, women, and children panicked… while lifeboats were lowered and people prayed for rescue… Captain Francesco Schettino sat in a lifeboat and watched.

Under Democrats and big-spending RINOs, Americans are in the same boat, so to speak.

Hopefully Europeans will take this as an omen and reverse course. Their economies are already listing and taking on water.

Occupy Oakland Erupts Again

Not that different” from the Tea Party, says Barack Hussein.

God bless them,” says Granny Botox.

Meanwhile, in liberal Oakland:

occupy-oakland-burn-flag

Oakland officials on Sunday were inspecting damage inside City Hall that was caused by about 50 Occupy protesters who broke in and smashed glass display cases, spray-painted graffiti, and burned the U.S. and California flags.

The break-in on Saturday was the culmination of a day of clashes between protesters and police. At least 300 people were arrested on charges ranging from vandalism and failure to disperse.

At least three officers and one protester were injured.

Mayor Jean Quan said Occupy protesters have caused an estimated $2 million in damages from vandalism since October. She said the cost to the city related to the Occupy Oakland protests is pegged at about $5 million.

Apparently her bold strategy of vacillating between half-hearted law enforcement and obsequious pandering to these lawless vermin isn’t working out.

Here’s how you know it was in the Bay Area:

Some people were wearing bandanas over their mouths and others were holding signs saying, “We are the 99%.” A marching band dressed in pink and black tutus and neon pick tights also was in the crowd.

It seems the ground troops for Obama’s promised fundamental transformation of America are getting tired of waiting for him to spend the country into economic collapse. They want to get started not wasting the crisis right now.

Here Comes Global Cooling Again

When Rick Santorum openly acknowledges the global warming panic to be a hoax, his voice is a lonely one among mainstream politicians. Statist hoaxers like Gingrich and Romney had better hope primary voters aren’t reading the news:

The supposed ‘consensus’ on man-made global warming is facing an inconvenient challenge after the release of new temperature data showing the planet has not warmed for the past 15 years.

The figures suggest that we could even be heading for a mini ice age to rival the 70-year temperature drop that saw frost fairs held on the Thames in the 17th Century.

Based on readings from more than 30,000 measuring stations, the data was issued last week without fanfare by the Met Office and the University of East Anglia Climatic Research Unit. It confirms that the rising trend in world temperatures ended in 1997.

Meanwhile, leading climate scientists … told The Mail on Sunday that, after emitting unusually high levels of energy throughout the 20th Century, the sun is now heading towards a ‘grand minimum’ in its output, threatening cold summers, bitter winters and a shortening of the season available for growing food.

Global warming is not a problem; like CO2, it helps the crops grow. As we may soon be reminded, global cooling is less benign.

But at least falling temperatures will reveal hoax participants as the liars and/or fools many instinctively knew them to be. As Nicola Scafetta of Duke University notes:

“If temperatures continue to stay flat or start to cool again, the divergence between the [global warming] models and recorded data will eventually become so great that the whole scientific community will question the current theories.”

That is, the entire hoax will collapse no matter how much of our money the government shovels at it, and the liberal media will go back to screeching about the coming ice age, as in the 1970s.

Fatwa Issued Against Chevy Logo

You would think after all the bowing and scraping Barack Hussein has performed in the Middle East, his Muslim friends would at least refrain from boycotting the auto companies he quasi-nationalizes. But no:

A Salafi sheikh in Egypt has reportedly issued a fatwa that buying [or driving] a Chevrolet vehicle is haram [forbidden] because the American brand’s logo looks like the Christian cross.

Good thing they don’t use the Roman alphabet, or they would have to issue a fatwa against the letter T.

Next After ObamaCare

What does the Manchurian Moonbat have in store for us next to follow up ObamaCare? Voters will have to bend over for him in November to find out. No doubt he has something historic and transformational in the works.

Taking Charge of the Battlefield

Allen West opens fire on the enemy:

“Take your message of equality of achievement, take your message of economic dependency, take your message of enslaving the entrepreneurial will and spirit of the American people somewhere else. You can take it to Europe, you can take it to the bottom of the sea, you can take it to the North Pole, but get the hell out of the United States of America.”

With a lot more of what Rep. West is serving up and a lot less of RINOs sniping at each other, we could still turn this situation around.

The Debt Generation

They were the Obama Generation. Now they are the Debt Generation:

The youth of this country will spend the rest of their lives paying for Obama’s spending spree. They have been sold into slavery. Hopefully enough wake up to what’s being done to them in time to save their future.

Riding on the Crony Socialist Gravy Train All the Live-Long Day

Why is zillionaire crony socialist Warren Buffett singing “I’ve Been Working on the Railroad” on communist Chinese television?

Maybe because his financial and propaganda support of the Manchurian Moonbat appear to have paid off. Obama killing the Keystone XL pipeline will cost us little people tens of thousands of jobs and send Canadian oil to China that would have come to us, but it will mean extra profits for Buffett, thanks to his railroad holdings.

That’s how business is done, now that our system is rotted through with moonbattery.

What the Government Is Buying With All Those $Trillions

They say Comrade Obama has $1 billion dollars to smear his 2012 opponent. But that is pocket change compared to the $trillions our collectivist rulers spend every year to buy our votes, as Bill Whittle explains:

Anything as rotten as our entitlement state has got to cave in, and it soon will. The reason our moonbat overlords aren’t doing anything to prevent the impending collapse is that it will be the ultimate crisis not to let go to waste.

All Whites Are Racist

If you live in Duluth and don’t agree that all whites are racists, then Mayor Don Ness needs to put up some more billboards:

This evil crap is evidently paid for by Duluth taxpayers, over 90% of whom are Caucasian.

Tantrums on the Tarmac

This week’s fit in Phoenix wasn’t the first time Barry Soetoro has thrown a tantrum on the tarmac:

His skin got him his job. If it were a little thicker, he might behave more like someone who should keep it.

Dem Rep. Jan Schakowsky: 20,000 Keystone Jobs Obama Killed “Not That Many”

There is good news regarding the Keystone XL pipeline that would mean Canadian oil continuing to come to us instead of communist China. No, Comrade Obama is not going to let the pipeline be built. But it’s not a big deal, because his apparatchik Jan Schakowsky (D-IL) informs us that the 20,000 direct jobs that would be created “are really not that many”:

She could have a point. Under Obama, real unemployment is well over 20%. What’s 20,000 jobs? It’s not as if even the hundreds of thousands of secondary jobs Keystone would create could reverse the damage Hopey Change is inflicting on the economy.

Biden Makes Fun of Indians Again

Remember when Joke Biden declared that you can’t go into a 7/11 in Delaware unless you have an Indian accent? Now he demonstrates what he thinks such an accent sounds like:

Hopefully few Indians are neurotic enough to be offended by Biden’s buffoonery. However, if he were a Republican, the entire media would be offended, and we would be deafened by demands for the RACIST!!! XENOPHOBE!!! to step down.

Democrats See Blacks as Useful Idiots

Here’s a history lesson Democrats won’t want blacks to see:

Good thing for libs they control the government schools, or people would already know all this.

Republicans freed the slaves. Democrats reenslaved them. Slavery is called “social justice” now, and all the slaves have to do is vote instead of picking cotton, but it isn’t any less pernicious.
