The disease we call moonbattery corrodes every aspect of our culture. Where it touches politics, it produces Barack Hussein Obama as President of the USA. Where it touches architecture, it produces this:
Proposals for a bizarre looking eco-skyscraper that could help reduce pollution from the 77,000 vehicles which use Chicago’s Congress Parkway Interchange every day have been unveiled.
Named the Congress Gateway Towers, the unusual buildings will be covered in algae designed to absorb harmful carbon dioxide emissions from commuters below and transform it back into oxygen.
The living towers algae will not only produce safe, breathable air, but could also be harvested to be used in the production of biofuels which could eventually be supplied to the buildings residents to power any future eco-friendly cars.
Though it sounds like something out of the cheesiest science fiction novel any moonbat ever put to paper, this guffaw-inducing concept appears to be on the level. No doubt the polar bears are anxiously awaiting its successful implementation.
Massive quantities of algae are now blooming in the Lincoln Memorial Reflecting Pool, where the federal government has just spent $34 million in stimulus money to make the pool “sustainable” and “improve the quality and appearance of the water.”
It would be surprising if the crooked slime-covered skyscrapers don’t receive public funds too. Yet our liberal rulers have determined that they know how to spend our money better than we do.
The moonbats running our government schools had better look alive. Canadian schools are progressing right past them in the race to liberal utopia. For example, the Toronto District School Board’s website encourages children to have sex with vegetables:
[O]n the TDSB site, you will find — under the heading Coalition for Positive Sexuality — a link called “Just Say Yes, pro sex” which champions encounters with vegetables and other experimental options.
“Most of us learn that our bodies, and our sex, are things to be ashamed of,” states the link. “Most of us learn that sex means a man on top of a woman, and that the only other choice is abstinence. But sex can be lots of things … women have sex with women, men have sex with men, women have sex with men — and sometimes the best sex is with yourself!”
It then says: “There are lots of safe and fun ways to get off, which you probably won’t learn in school … don’t feel like you have to do everything on this page, but don’t feel like anything is automatically off limits either.”
It describes how an individual “could suck, kiss, touch, bite, fondle, nibble, squeeze and lick someone’s body, nipples, calves, toes, neck” and other areas. It talks of masturbation in front of the mirror, acting out fantasies and using sex toys.
“Play with your own or someone else’s a‐‐ or vagina, put your fingers, dildoes, vegetables, or butt plugs into them,” is what it states.
An adult who repeated this filth to a child on school grounds would be arrested, even at this point in our cultural decline. But linking to it on a website gets around that for now, while enlightened liberal educators wait for repressive laws and backward bitter clingers to catch up.
Among the most alarmingly psychotic propaganda you will see from the Muslim–moonbat alliance are attempts to equate Israelis with Nazis. In light of the Holocaust, and the second Holocaust that threatens to unfold as Iran acquires nuclear weapons, nothing could be more absurd or more obscene.
Speaking of absurd and obscene, here’s a shot Associated Press chose to illustrate Benjamin Netanyahu’s speech to the United Nations yesterday:
The purpose of the speech was to prevent that second Holocaust.
It wasn’t just AP. Reuters used this:
Kudos to AP and Reuters propagandists for their patience. They must have had to sift through hundreds of photos of the speech before finding gestures that look like Nazi salutes to send out on the wire.
We cannot be sure whether the Obama Regime will side with our Israeli friends or our Iranian enemies in the upcoming war, but we certainly know where the “mainstream” media will stand.
Remember Mona Eltahawy, the moonbatty Muslim activist familiar to MSNBC and CNN viewers who spray-painted an NYC subway ad and a woman who tried to defend it because she regarded its pro-Israel message to be “racist”? As always with Islamists, her outrageous behavior has been rewarded:
The New York Times reports the MTA will prohibit any advertisements that it “reasonably foresees would imminently incite or provoke violence or other immediate breach of the peace.” Those “viewpoint” ads that do not meet this criteria will be allowed, so long as a disclaimer is included saying the MTA does not endorse them. The MTA met on Thursday to discuss the rules, which were approved unanimously 8-0.
It was only a partial victory for Eltahawy, Hamas, al Qaeda, et al., but the best the dhimmis running NYC could do for now, considering the constraints of the First Amendment, and enough to cause Eltahawy to crow victoriously:
No word from Pamela Hall, the heroic bystander who tried to defend the poster. She’s probably still trying to get the pink spray paint off her glasses.
The sociopathic Mona Eltahawy beside her handiwork.
A slave revolt nearly broke out at a grocery store in Georgia. Not to worry, Obama supporters; it was quickly put down:
Cindy Nerger, 28, who relies on food stamps to feed her family, said she was brought to tears after being embarrassed by a manager at a Kroger store in Warner Robbins, Ga.
“He said, ‘Excuse me for working for a living and not relying on food stamps like you,'” Nerger said the manager told her.
The man’s comment came after Nerger and two other store employees disagreed over whether her total purchase was eligible for food stamps — the employees had insisted that roughly $10 of her bill was not covered. She said the manager ultimately told the employees to “just give it to her.”
After Nerger then stressed that she had been right all along, the man made his “working for a living” remark, she said.
Kroger quickly fell to its knees to apologize for the rebellious manager, groveling in an official statement:
“We deeply regret our customer’s experience. The comments made were not reflective of our company’s policy. We value all of our customers. Please know that we have taken immediate steps to make sure something like this never happens again.”
The manager has been transferred. His future with Kroger does not look promising.
It would be surprising if Nerger isn’t searching for the greediest lawyer she can find. Being brought to tears should be worth at least six figures. She was offered a $15 gift card and turned it down.
Largely with the use of rigged polls, the media has had some success in dispiriting patriotic Americans in the run-up to the biggest election of our lives. Maybe this guess post by B1bbet will help dispel the gloom:
I know these odious polls are trying on our patience, but keep these things in mind as you slog through the latest MSM’s putrid poll discharge.
1. Missouri: Since 1904, MO has gotten the winner of the Presidential Election wrong just twice; once in 1956 and last year. Last year, they missed it by the wafer-thin margin of 0.1% of votes cast. Romney is up big there — by about 7 points by the RCP average as I write this. MO getting it wrong, two years in a row and by such a large margin this time around? Does not compute. (http://www.270towin.com/states/Missouri)
2. Undecideds: Logic would dictate that undecided voters are such since they don’t like how the incumbent is performing, otherwise they would be in his camp already, as they know what they’re getting when casting their ballot for him. A rather lengthy study here (http://www.pollingreport.com/incumbent.htm) shows that approximately 82% of undecided voters end up voting for the challenger should they vote at all. I’m going to grant The Won a bit of wiggle room here due to the media’s ongoing tongue bath, though, and say that number will be just 75% this time around. Three of 4 undecided voters pulling the lever for Romney? Yes, please.
~ 2010 Happened: A historic rebuking of Obama’s hard-left policies actually DID happen, as much as the MSM may like to forget about it. Now, unlike Clinton, who was dragged further to the center by his midterm spanking, Obama only went harder left as a result. Think that sits well with all the people who cast votes in the Big Red Wave midterms?
~ Common Sense: Are there ANY indicators, besides these clearly slanted polls, that one can point to and say, “Yeah, Obama’s got that going for him”? The only one I could think of was bin Laden, and I’m pretty sure he won’t be mentioning that one much in the coming weeks for obvious reasons.
In short — don’t believe the hype. Believe your gut. This guy is terrible and the majority of the country knows it, just like you and I do.
The Blaze performed a remarkable feat by narrowing the field down to the 14 most absurd things for sale on the Obama website. But Moonbattery.com will go further, digging through all the kitschy crapola to the single most absurd item:
Why is this relatively tasteful scarf more absurd even than an Obama birth certificate coffee mug or an Obama logo/bones-patterned doggy sweater? Because it cost a staggering $95. They seem to have sold out. Fools and their money are easily parted.
As for the item that best sums up the grotesque cultural deformation that has reached its apogee in Obama…
On a tip from The Only Other Conservative in Seattle.
This explains why Occucommie protestors would be willing to goad police into using pepper spray:
The University of California has agreed to pay $1 million to settle a lawsuit filed by demonstrators who were pepper-sprayed during an Occupy protest at UC Davis last fall, according to a preliminary settlement filed Wednesday. …
Under the proposed settlement, UC would pay $30,000 to each of 21 plaintiffs named in the complaint and an additional $250,000 for their attorneys to split.
[Chancellor Linda] Katehi, who has publicly apologized for the incident, would be required to issue a formal written apology to each of the plaintiffs…
The settlement also calls for UC to set aside $100,000 to pay other individuals who can prove they were arrested or pepper-sprayed. The university would give the ACLU up to $20,000 for its work reviewing free speech and protest policies at UC Davis.
In short, the university had its pockets turned inside out. But since our dysfunctional legal system is run by moonbats, going to court would have cost it even more.
This sort of nonsense also helps explain why college tuition is shooting through the stratosphere, even as Big Government pours ever more money into education. Ironically, the protests were largely over tuition hikes.
He was actually spraying the punks with other people’s money.
The indirect costs of Obama’s disastrous presidency are incalculable. As for the direct costs:
Taxpayers spent $1.4 billion dollars on everything from staffing, housing, flying and entertaining President Obama and his family last year, according to the author of a new book on taxpayer-funded presidential perks. …
Author Robert Keith Gray writes in “Presidential Perks Gone Royal” that Obama isn’t the only president to have taken advantage of the expensive trappings of his office. But the amount of money spent on the first family, he argues, has risen tremendously under the Obama administration and needs to be reined in.
This gives an idea of how it is even possible to waste other people’s money on such a scale:
The president’s dog gets its own high-paid staffer: “Bo made the news when he and his handler were flown to join the president on vacation in Maine,” Gray wrote about the Obama family dog. “It has been reported that the first family’s dog handler was paid $102,000, last year.”
Considering Obama’s greed, arrogance, solipsism, looter mentality, and utter unconcern for the welfare of the country, you could hardly expect anything less, even as the nation goes bankrupt. Louis XVI comes to mind yet again.
Watching our government grovel before the Islamic world by denouncing an American video in response to the recent violence against our citizens and embassies has been a blow to our pride, but at least it has defused a potentially dangerous situation by placating Muslim leaders. Oh wait…
One of Pakistan’s most feared Islamists accused President Barack Obama on Wednesday of starting a religious war against Muslims over his handling of a video that mocked the Prophet Mohammad.
Hafiz Saeed, accused by India of masterminding the 2008 attack by Pakistani gunmen on India’s financial capital Mumbai, said Obama should have ordered steps to remove the film from the Internet instead of defending freedom of expression in America.
“Obama’s statements have caused a religious war,” Saeed told Reuters in an interview. “This is a very sensitive issue. This is not going to be resolved soon. Obama’s statement has started a cultural war.”
Denouncing the video that even Shrillary now admits did not really set off the 9/11 anniversary violence is not enough; nothing short of our complete elimination as a civilization will ever be enough. As a step toward that objective, Saeed demands that Obama turn over the creator of the insignificant video, presumably so that he can be made to suffer a ghastly death.
Both the USA and India would like Pakistan to turn over Saeed for helping murder 166 people in Mumbai, including six Americans. But Pakistan won’t even detain him. Why should they? Our government will continue to give them $billions per year of our money no matter how many times they stick their thumb in our eye, as has been confirmed by the effective death sentence Shakil Afridi received for helping us find Osama bin Laden.
Obama’s appeasement strategy isn’t working on Saeed.
Even before the 2008 election, when it was pointed out to Obama that his plans to jack capital gains taxes through the ceiling would actually reduce government revenue by suppressing economic activity, the Lightworker blithely replied that the point was “fairness” — i.e., Obama planned to inflict tax increases out of sheer malice, regardless of the Laffer curve. Where will money come from to finance his demented never-ending spending spree? Simple: put it on the credit card, then monetize the debt:
The latest round of extraordinary Federal Reserve stimulus is risky and leaves little room to maneuver should another crisis hit, economist Lawrence Lindsey told CNBC’s “Squawk Box” on Wednesday.
Lindsey said that with the Fed purchasing at least $40 billion a month in mortgage debt through QE3, “they are buying the entire deficit.”
This means that our rulers are using inflation to pay for their spending. Essentially, this is a tax on everyone anywhere who uses American currency.
Also before the 2008 election, Obama made a “firm pledge” that no family making less than $250,000 per year would see a tax increase. No one who believed him has any business voting.
Why continue to waste lives and money in Afghanistan? If we aren’t fighting to win, we may as well pack it in immediately, as the story of Greg Buckley makes obvious:
Deployed to a volatile outpost in southern Afghanistan where U.S. Marines routinely face a mix of skirmishes and hidden explosives, Greg Buckley Jr. sensed that an attack was imminent.
And he knew that it would come from within.
The 21-year-old Marine was posted to Garmsir in Helmand Province, where he was training local security forces as part of NATO’s planned withdrawal in 2014.
One Afghan trainee spent hours on end during nighttime guard duty telling him over and over again, “We don’t want you here. We don’t need you here,” until Buckley finally confronted him. He was of course forced to apologize to the openly anti-American Afghan, who refused to shake his hand.
Buckley was so sure that an Afghan trainee would kill him that he told his family in advance he would not be coming home. Sure enough, he was gunned down in an insider attack two days before he was scheduled to leave Afghanistan.
Apparently it is not politically convenient for Obama to get our people out of that hellhole immediately. Yet there is no plan for anything that could be construed as victory. Under Obama, Afghanistan has degenerated into an unwinnable exercise in humiliation. It may be doing more to destroy morale than his campaign to homosexualize the military.
It isn’t only overseas that we are falling prey to an enemy within.
If you thought there was any limit to the extremes the liberal establishment will go to in its mission to impose the mainstreaming of homosexuality, look to the country we have been following from the peaks of greatness into the abyss of moonbattery:
France is set to ban the words “mother” and “father” from all official documents under new plans to legalize gay marriage and give equal adoption rights to homosexual and heterosexual couples.
Under the proposed law, only the word “parents” would be used in marriage ceremonies for all heterosexual and same-sex couples, a move that has sparked widespread outrage, The Telegraph reports. …
The law will be presented to France’s President Francois Hollande’s cabinet for approval on October 31. Hollande has pledged to legalize gay marriage.
Halloween is a fitting date for another stepped toward forced normalization of the freakish.
Once again liberals have been using George Orwell’s 1984 not as a warning but as an instruction manual. The book describes the totalitarian tactic of restricting thought by limiting vocabulary.
