While the GOP leadership searches for new ways to reach common ground with America’s collectivist enemies, the Democrat rank and file is maintained in a state of psychotic belligerence toward anyone who stands between them and their authoritarian utopia. This rant from Mike Malloy is mean enough to make John Boehner cry:
As we all know by now, “tea-bagger” is an obscene epithet for homosexuals. By using this term to insult the people they most hate (i.e., patriotic defenders of the Constitution and traditional American values), liberals reveal that they not only revere homosexuals, but also loathe them. They have a similarly twisted attitude toward the minorities they patronize and exploit.

The diametric opposite of the cultural rot that produced Barack Hussein Obama would be the code of chivalry practiced by the knights of old — who of course are demonized by liberals. Wild Bill for America would like to reclaim the noble cultural heritage we have been discarding:

By now even liberals know about the Laffer Curve, and how raising taxes that are already excessive does not increase but rather decreases government revenue. But their eat-the-rich approach is good for one thing — ridding a country of its most productive citizens:
In the 2009-10 tax year, more than 16,000 people declared an annual income of more than £1 million to HM Revenue and Customs.
This number fell to just 6,000 after Gordon Brown introduced the new 50p top rate of income tax shortly before the last general election. …
It is believed that rich Britons moved abroad or took steps to avoid paying the new levy by reducing their taxable incomes.
Another partial explanation is that the high tax rates so oppress the economy that it is no longer possible to create as much wealth.
In any case, the predictable result of taxing millionaires more was that those who didn’t escape the country like East Germans climbing the Berlin Wall produced less tax revenue.
But as Barack Hussein Obama has openly admitted, the point of raising taxes on the demonized rich is not to raise revenue, but to inflict “fairness” — i.e., sheer malice — in the name of Marxist ideology.

We didn’t so much choose socialism on November 6 as we chose banana republic tyranny, not by voting, but by failing to make a peep about this:
Obama lost in each and every US State where voter ID laws were in place …
In 59 Philadelphia precincts, Mitt Romney received no votes and Obama received 100% of the votes — or even higher. This fact, alone, should have raised red flags and set off all manner of bells, whistles and sirens. But, the Republican Establishment (aka Marxist-lite) has remained silent …
The military vote was almost totally suppressed in the November elections
People were openly reported to have voted twice — or more
Republican poll watchers in multiple states were either turned away and not allowed to enter the precincts or thrown out once they had done so
Voters in multiple voting booths across the country reported their votes for Romney were automatically changed to Obama
Votes for Romney/Ryan were either changed to Obama./Biden by poll workers or thrown out entirely
Democrats bussed non-US citizen voters, many of whom could not speak English, from state to state to vote for Obama
The RNLA reported “election fraud occurred in Flushing [NY] when a Korean-American translator helping voters at PS 20 was caught directing them to vote for Democratic candidates. A volunteer poll watcher confirmed the incident” and in North Carolina
Et cetera, ad nauseam. Some of the most conspicuous fraud occurred in the definitive swing states, Ohio and Florida.
To accept this is to be complicit in it. Yet here’s the response from our excuse for an opposition party:

Some parasites sensibly allow their hosts enough nourishment to live. Others are so greedy that they kill their hosts in the assumption that another host can be found afterward. Liberals are parasites of the second variety. Anyone who doubts they are killing their host hasn’t seen this:
Some who draw a government paycheck perform needed services in return. Most do not — prominently including the best paid.
How many of them do they think we can carry on our backs?

There has been a step backward in our march toward progressive utopia. Stacie Laughton, the first transsexual freakazoid to be elected to the New Hampshire House of Representatives, did not last the month. If only Barack Hussein Obama’s comparably farcical election had been as short-lived.
Despite [its] resolve to take office next week, the case of State Representative-Elect Stacie Laughton has taken a legal turn, forcing [it] to resign [its] seat.
Based on the language of NH RSA 607-A:2:1 it appears Laughton, a convicted felon who served four months in Belknap County House of Corrections, would have been ineligible to serve for six more years had [it] not decided to step down. …
Laughton, who is transgender, was convicted and served time while still living as a man, under the name Barry Laughton.
Although a felon in New Hampshire has the right to run for office and vote once they’ve fulfilled the terms of their sentence, another question was raised earlier Tuesday with the AG’s office — whether Laughton was legally able to serve as a state representative due to the open status of two concurrent suspended sentences.
Laughton was sentenced in July of 2008 on three charges. Two of them — 7 1/2 to 15 years for conspiracy to commit credit card fraud and 3 1/2 to 7 years for the falsifying physical evidence — were suspended pending 10 years of good behavior. …
Although [it] did fulfill the terms of [its] 12-month sentence on conspiracy to commit fraud, since two of the convictions against [it] were suspended pending 10 years good behavior, [it] has six more years to wait for [its] chance to run for office.
Cheer up, moonbats; the news isn’t all bad. Within six years New Hampshire will have been completely overrun by Massholes attempting to escape the taxes they impose on themselves back in Taxachusetts. The liberal values that found champions in long-serving politicians like murdering degenerate commie Ted Kennedy, child-molesting homosexual Gerry Studds, and repulsive pervert Barney Frank will assure Laughton’s success when it becomes eligible to try again.

The GOP establishment is reflexively conciliatory. But you don’t know what you might touch if you try reaching across the aisle toward people like this:
Nothing says seriousness and respect for the political process like invading the office of the Speaker of the House in the nude. And nothing says great media like covering such a protest by laughing along with the protesters while playing up the protest to the hilt.
That’s what happened today, as AIDS research protesters descended on Rep. John Boehner’s (R-OH) office in the Longworth building. Boehner wasn’t in at the time. They began chanting and screaming: “Boehner, Boehner, don’t be a dick! Budget cuts will make us sick!” Classy.
Liberals aren’t interested in debate. They are interested in looting the country literally to death, while its defenders are drowned out by lewd circus acts.
For anyone whose stomach can withstand naked moonbats chanting Marxist slogans, video is here.

Contrary to news reports, we are not approaching the fiscal cliff. It is behind us now, because we dove off of it by reelecting the irresponsible and/or malicious punk who is spending the nation into oblivion. We just haven’t hit the ground yet. But no matter what we do now, we will. Meanwhile, the deficit spending continues:
The U.S. Treasury increased the net debt of the United States $24,327,048,384.38 on the day after Thanksgiving, which equals approximately $211.69 for each of the nation’s 114,916,000 households. …
Friday was also the first time in the history of the United States that the debt has topped $16.3 trillion.
When President Barack Obama first took office on Jan. 20, 2009, the national debt stood at $10,626,877,048,913.08. Since then, it has increased by $5,680,611,894,651.15.
That means that since Obama has been president, the national debt has increased by about $49,432.73 per household.
That means the debt imposed by Hope & Change so far comes to $49,432.73 per household. That tab will be much higher before this disgraceful debacle is finally over.

Following the catastrophic elections of November 6, obnoxious hard left lunatic Alan Grayson is back in Congress — and back to his boorish antics:
Grayson wasted little time in making it clear that his second stint at playing a lawmaker will be no less mortifying than the first when he spent Thanksgiving night agitating Walmart workers on behalf of organized labor and disrupting the early start to Black Friday holiday shopping.
Union-backed groups OUR Walmart and Making Change at Wal-Mart were calling for an employee walkout during Black Friday.
In the typical theatrics that define the far left, our newly elected Congressman was handing out turkey sandwiches and letters explaining the right to organize to employees at a local Walmart, forcing management to call the police to have him escorted off the property.
It isn’t a coincidence that this bullying clown was making a fool of himself on behalf of Big Unions.
[L]abor unions, primarily public sector unions, are the number one contributors to Grayson, donating hundreds of thousands of dollars.
That would be the same cancerous sector of society that recently killed the Twinkie and reduced the auto industry to a ward of the welfare state. Still more deleteriously, unions were also instrumental in placing the Manchurian Moonbat in the White House.
Either we rid society of unions, or it will be choked to death by the lowlife politicians who serve them.

Somehow I doubt they will be calling upon Steven Crowder to lecture at California’s new Humboldt Institute for Interdisciplinary Marijuana Research — although this proves that they certainly ought to:
You can expect marijuana to be not only legal but subsidized by your tax dollars in the foreseeable future, for the same reason the government subsidizes poverty. A stoned electorate is a compliant electorate.
At this point it can’t be easy for liberals to push their absurd ideology ever deeper into self-parody. Yet they manage:
Just before Thanksgiving last week, the liberal site Slate dredged up a 2010 piece claiming that the reason Americans love the white meat on a turkey is because we are all racists.
Ron Rosenbaum pondered the timeless philosophical question of why some people prefer white meat.
“It was enough to make me wonder whether there could be a racial, if not racist, subtext here,” he wrote.
Before long Rosenbaum had worked himself into a full lather, spewing spittle as he raved:
“Despite its superior taste, dark meat has dark undertones for some. Dark meat evokes the color of earth, soil. Dark meat seems to summon up ancient fears of contamination and miscegenation as opposed to the supposed superior purity of white meat. I guess it shouldn’t be a surprise that white meat remains the choice of a holiday that celebrates Puritans.”
Needless to say, if liberal ideology had any validity whatsoever, moonbats wouldn’t be so hard pressed to find racism that isn’t directed against whites.

What the heck, California is only a few hundred $billion in debt. Why not follow the election of an irresponsible tax & spend screwball as governor by opening up a public academic institute devoted to marijuana?
The Humboldt Institute for Interdisciplinary Marijuana Research at Humboldt State University plans to sponsor scholarly lectures and coordinate research among 11 faculty members from fields such as economics, geography, politics, psychology and sociology.
I wonder if they will offer the former President of the Choom Gang an honorary degree.

The collectivist cockroaches who control what comes out of your TV set aren’t the only ones pleased with Barack Hussein’s disgusting win. They can clink their champagne glasses with the terrorists running Iran, which has been at war with the USA since Barry was a foreign student freshman at Occidental College:
Iranian leaders did not hide their satisfaction in Mr. Obama’s re-election and the prospect of more negotiations, which, in their view, will buy them more time to develop nuclear weapons.
Professor Pirooz Mojtahedzade, who teaches political geography at Tehran University, said in a recent interview, “Perhaps one reason for Obama’s success in his re-election campaign was his opposition to the warmongering Prime Minister [Benjamin Netanyahu] of Israel, which officially eliminated the effect of the Zionist lobby in presidential elections, and the result of this is that the Israel lobby will not have much effect on U.S. politics in the next four years.”
It’s true enough that American Jews have discarded their political influence. By overwhelmingly backing Obama again despite his obvious hostility to Israel, they have proven they would vote for Hitler if he ran as a Democrat. Obama’s catastrophic reelection seals Israel’s fate even before it seals our own.

Not everyone in Hollywierd has been completely corrupted by the industry that produces the septic slime oozing for hours each day out of our televisions and into our families’ minds.
The teenage actor who plays the half in the hit CBS comedy “Two and a Half Men” says in a video posted online by a Christian church that the show is “filth” and that viewers shouldn’t watch it.
Nineteen-year-old Angus T. Jones has been on the show, which used to feature bad-boy actor Charlie Sheen and remains heavy with sexual innuendo, since he was 10 but says he doesn’t want to be on it anymore.
“Please stop watching it,” Jones said. “Please stop filling your head with filth.”
His advice can be applied to television programming in general, as well as silver screen excretions.

By any objective measure of performance, assuming that his purpose is to promote America’s best interests, Barack Hussein Obama has been a catastrophic failure. Yet we see this:

Similar accolades were paid to Hitler in the 1930s.

Ever wonder how the erstwhile Golden State, with all its massive resources, could find itself hundreds of $billions in debt and staring bankruptcy in the face? Compensation for state workers is one part of the story. Conservative Counterpoint observes that with the help of accrued leave payments, a prison dentist was paid $621,971, a prison psychiatrist $737,057, and prison doctor Jeffrey Rohlfing $784,596 in a single year:
The $784,596 figure includes overtime, bonuses, and other compensation, in addition to salary, but it’s quite a jump from 2004 when Rohlfing earned a mere $132,854. The pay hike is especially surprising since Rohlfing was put on probation for five years in 1997 after being found guilty of unprofessional conduct and impairment due to mental illness.
Standards are not high for government workers, as a peek inside the Oval Office will confirm. For years Rohlfing as been paid lavishly to do little or nothing.
More California salaries:
Then there is the state university system, where accelerating tuition rates cannot keep pace with the educrat gravy train:
State bureaucrats have a blank check to pay each other whatever they think they can get away with. Due to the liberal flakiness of most of the population, they can get away with quite a lot. The result: a tsunami of red ink that promises to wash the whole state away.
No worries. The federal government will find a way to force Texas to bail California out.

How many female justices on the Supreme Court would be enough to placate liberals? Let’s ask Ruth Bader Ginsburg:
Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg says there will be enough women on the Supreme Court when all nine justices are female.
“So now the perception is, yes, women are here to stay. And when I’m sometimes asked when will there be enough [women on the Supreme Court]? And I say when there are nine, people are shocked. But there’d been nine men, and nobody’s ever raised a question about that,” she said.
All nine justices being women might be enough for Ruth Bader Ginsburg, but it takes more than female gender to qualify for the most powerful court in the land. Others will shriek until all nine are black, and still others will insist that all nine publicly attest to engaging in sexual depravity.
When all nine justices are lesbian black women, Keith Ellison et al. will demand that all nine be Muslim. By then we will probably have militant little people demanding that all nine be dwarves.
One thing is clear. If Democrats continue to appoint them, eventually all nine will be clownish left-wing fanatics with nothing but contempt for the Constitution they are sworn to uphold.
