    A comment with no link to a particular article…

    The privatization of space travel via SpaceX’s Dragon is, to me, ‘…one small step for government, one giant leap for capitalism’. (Sorry Neil.)

    Of course – now I’m seeing Obama get ‘credit’ (ABC News).

  3. Red Dawn says:

    Interestingly, the “Forward” slogan traces all the way back to the very first “community organizer”, Thomas Muntzer, who used it to wreak havoc and mayhem on Germany in 1525.

    So much for “progress”, I guess.

  4. Bloodless Coup says:

    From The Canada Free Press…

    US Dictator Barack Hussein Obama has announced he has given his latest Czar (John Brennan) the “right” to assassinate those whom Obama chooses.

    the erroneous Kenya detail in his literary booklet bio..”
    —-As Allahpundit so characterizes BO’s autobiographical admission that he was born in Kenya.

    Another piece of brilliant work. Allahpundit at HotAir has been a long time ad hominem critic of “birthers*”.

    This apparently in order to gain some kind of intellectual credibility with the enlightened class of “objective” conservatives, Allah firmly ensconces himself with liberals who haven’t a clue or don’t care that this is a critical national and constitutional issue.

    Bizarre thinking, but that’s what it takes when assuming things, rather than looking at the facts, about BO.

    *An appellation intentionally derisive since it phonetically lumps those concerned about the constitution in with “Truthers” who argue that 9-11 was an inside job spearheaded by Jews and Bush.

  6. A. Levy says:

    “Marching Forward”. As with all tactics used by the Left, the slogan says one thing, but in fact, means the exact opposite. Diversion and misinformation are two of the Left’s oldest and most effective tactics. Why? Because people still fall for them.

  7. Fiberal says:

    Also notice that Allahpundit safely criticizes soft target Donald Trump for suspecting BO’s citizenship, rather than to take on Joe Arpaiyo and the evidence his team has amassed demonstrating that the long form is an obvious forgery, as was BO’s Selective Service registration card.

    Yep. That would be a bit too difficult. Safer to ridicule “Birthers” and give it to BO.

    And BTW, why has Ann Coulter, famed “birther” critic, not demolished Arpaiyo’s arguments?


    Overall, it’s just easier to take the Bob Roberts approach and argue that the citizenship issue is a “distraction”, —-meanwhile engaging in daily posting of every other possible topic ever known to any news blog anywhere on the web and from beyond.

  11. Spider says:


    “From time to time we’ve been tempted to believe that society has become too complex to be managed by self-rule, that government by an elite group is superior to government for, by, and of the people. Well, if no one among us is capable of governing himself, then who among us has the capacity to govern someone else? All of us together, in and out of government, must bear the burden. The solutions we seek must be equitable, with no one group singled out to pay a higher price.

    We are a nation that has a government–not the other way around. And this makes us special among the nations of the Earth. Our government has no power except that granted it by the people. It is time to check and reverse the growth of government, which shows signs of having grown beyond the consent of the governed.

    It is my intention to curb the size and influence of the federal establishment and to demand recognition of the distinction between the powers granted to the federal government and those reserved to the states or to the people. All of us need to be reminded that the federal government did not create the states; the states created the federal government…”

    New draconian financial regulations imposed by Democrats in Congress are having the effect of preventing stay at home moms from getting credit. Previously they could get credit based on the income of their spouse but no longer. Without their own visible income stream they no longer qualify for credit under new rules enacted by Obama and the Democrats.

    Why can’t Fiberal read?

    Apparently he went to a union school, I guess.

    I did not simply say the birth issue was a distraction, I said it was a critical Constitutional issue!

    However, I also said that, sadly, a majority of people either DO NOT KNOW, OR DO NOT CARE about this issue.

    I think Constitutional issues are #1, before EVERYTHING else.

    However, not everyone shares my view – and some snipe at me without even knowing what they’re talking about.

    My point was and is that if you want to defeat Obama, you need to choose issues a majority of people care about. At the end of the day, as critical as Constitutional issues are, they’re not the ones on which elections turn. Economic issues tend to be the strongest and this is an area where Obama is weakest.

    And as I’ve said to others, if you don’t like what I post, DO NOT READ MY POSTS. How simple is that?

    Careful, Fiberal will accuse you of ” engaging in daily posting of every other possible topic ever known to any news blog anywhere on the web and from beyond” if you’re not careful.

    Next thing you know he’ll be accusing Mr. Blount of the same thing.

    I tend to avoid one trick ponies. I tend to gravitate towards those with a broad body of knowledge and experience. While there are a lot of wise voices out there talking about things that are important, those who pick losing issues are, in a word, losers. An issue can be important but can still be a loser of an issue, wrong as we all agree that may be.

    WHINER DISCLAIMER – I’m sharing a variety of information in this post, some political, some humorous, some just interesting news. Whiners – feel free to skip to the next post.

    These links are offered NOT TO MONOPOLIZE THE CONVERSATION, BUT TO START IT. Go ahead and expand on any of the topics I share, or share your own.

    Russians arming oppressive Syrian government.

    Iran wins again.

    after often fraught bargaining in Baghdad, diplomats left declaring they had made no progress at all.

    When will ANYONE learn that Iran’s leaders are insane? You can’t fix crazy, you have to exterminate it. I wish the Iranian people would get around to doing it, but if they won’t, someone else will have to step in and do it.

    The longer we negotiate, the close terrorists in charge of Iran get to having a nuclear weapon.

    Michelle Obama’s latest junket at taxpayer expense.

    Who did Obama thank in his yearbook?

    Ray the dealer was “freakin’ scary.” Many years later they learned that he had been killed with a ball-peen hammer by a scorned gay lover. But at the time he was useful because of his ability to “score quality weed.”

    Not those who raised him, not those who taught him – rather he thanked the drug dealers that supplied him and those he got high with.

    Another link for lunatic liberals who are snooty about sources.

    It occurs to me – had Martin married and had a son, he would probably look a lot like “Barry”.

    Even with teleprompter, Obama mentions “my sons”. Does he have any illegitimate/unacknowledged children out there perhaps? Is it possible Martin was really one of his offspring? Would that explain his interest in the case? (For those of you without a sense of humor, I jest.)

    Mexican drug cartels making military uniforms. Last time I drove through Mexico I was stopped several times by people in military uniforms. They were pretty cool, really, probably there to catch the drug cartels, actually. I was driving through some bad areas.

  16. Fiberal says:

    That’s quite a reaction Bob,

    You were running on the “distraction” line up until about a week ago.

    Fiberal says: May 26, 2012 at 10:03 am
    Obviously you didn’t read my posts, which started, in general, with a statement that I agree the birth/citizenship issue is a valid Constitutional one and therefore is a top issue – but as I said AND AS YOU SHOULD KNOW, not enough people care about it.

    That’s not my fault, it’s just a fact.

    So, IN EFFECT, all you do when you hammer on an issue THAT NOT ENOUGH PEOPLE CARE ABOUT is you do distract from the issues that PEOPLE DO CARE ABOUT.

    However, I did not say it was “just a distraction” as you claimed. I said that, since people are more concerned with where they’re going to get their next meal, whether they’ll have a place to live next month, if they will be able to afford to get to work even if they could find a job, they have things that are more important to them personally to worry about.

    I agree with you – that’s what you don’t get. Constitutional issues are the most important issues. But to the average person that’s not the case. They care about survival, which even you have to admit is sensible in this time when Obama and the Democrats are putting us all, and our nation, at risk.

    So can we stop bickering about something we agree on? You are right that the birth/citizenship issue SHOULD BE a top concern, but, frankly, it isn’t. That’s all I’ve tried to say. Maybe I said it poorly.

    I say again, hammer Obama on one of the many issues where he’s weak. Ones that resonate with a majority of the people. Not on issues where, even though he should not be, he is strong. Sadly, the birth/citizenship issue is not one that will lead to defeat in 2012.

  18. Bob Roberts says:

    Oh, and a little correction:

    “At the end of the day, as critical as Constitutional issues are, they’re not ALWAYS the ones on which elections turn.”

    They should be, yes, I totally agree with you Fiberal.

    Sadly, they’re not.

    Local girl comes in second, they claim she has “nothing”. She’s got wonderful looks, a great voice, lots of talent. Many would kill or die for what she’s got.

    Obama blames Bush, then invites him to the White House.

    Disease spread by fleas. Of the top five travel destinations for this weekend, California got three. So if you’re coming out, watch out for the fleas in Santa Ana – you may wind up with typhus.

    A good move – letting the private sector take over in space activities. They’ll do it cheaper & better than government ever did.

    Take that, lunatic liberals! Liberal lunatic moonbats love to come out with studies that show Fox viewers are not as smart as they are – nor is anyone else because everyone knows they’re always the smartest people in the room, right?


    They hate Drudge – yet it turns out Drudge readers are way ahead of your typical moonbat.

  20. Bob Roberts says:

    Internet insanity!

    House lawmakers will consider an international proposal next week to give the United Nations more control over the Internet. The proposal is backed by China, Russia, Brazil, India and other UN members, and would give the UN’s International Telecommunication Union (ITU) more control over the governance of the Internet. The Internet is currently governed under a “multi-stakeholder” approach that gives power to a host of nonprofits, rather than governments. Strickling said that system brings more ideas and flexibility to Internet policymaking. “We lose that when we turn this over to a group of just governments,” Strickling said.

    This will drive the “open borders” crowd crazy!

    I have to admit it was nice to be able to travel around Europe with less border hassles. But we used to be able to do that here, too, before 9/11. I could get into Mexico, and get both ways at Canada, with minimum hassle. The only problem with getting out of Mexico was the lines – the actual border crossing was easy.

    Chance for global recession now 100% That’s what happens when liberals/socialists destroy the economic engines of the world.

    Get ready for more expensive and less available eggs.

    Government regulation – screws up everything. Pretty soon our store shelves will be as bare as those in the defunct USSR!

  21. Bob Roberts says:

    Obama and the Democrats – creating a nation of moochers. How can a nation be great if a majority of it’s citizens are dependent on government for their survival?

    HILARIOUS! Europe, about to go down hard, lecturing us on fiscal matters? I mean yeah, Obama and the Democrats are doing their best to drive us off a fiscal cliff, that much is true, but Europe giving US a hard time about it? Obama and the Democrats got us to this point by emulating them!

    City sends Obama the bill for campaign visit Don’t hold your breath waiting for them to pay up.

    Liberals making empty gestures again!

    Vermont becomes first state to ban fracking – there are no known or likely deposits that would lead to any plan to start fracking there.

    I’m no longer surprised when liberals spend a lot of time on things that don’t matter.

  23. Judith M. says:

    Wingman, that link to the great Piggly Wiggly bacon heist of 2012 was priceless. You’d think a person who weighed 340 lbs would be embarrassed to shop at a store named “Piggly Wiggly”, let alone shoplift bacon from there, but you’d be wrong.
