    Here we have dear leader placed in a mason jar full of some yellow-colored liquid. Who is to say this isn’t a work of art?

    Burgler brings a knife to a gun fight…

    Unfortunately the homeowner made a couple of mistakes. A 40 cal pistol is fine for carrying around town. When a guy breaks into your home, it’s shotgun time.
    Second mistake….the bad guy is arguing with the homeowner while waiting for the police to arrive.

    Maybe the homeowner was being merciful. Maybe he just ran out of rounds.

    Maybe he just didn’t want to clean up the mess from eight or ten bullet holes.

    Classic movie and hit title song declared racist!

    Now, the creator of “Truth,” Michael D’Antuono, said that his “First Amendment rights should override someone’s hurt feelings” and that “we should celebrate the fact that we live in a country where we are given the freedom to express ourselves.”
    So, in other words, if I want to put a KORAN in a jar full of pig blood, my right to express myself naturally overrides someone’s hurt feelings?

    Thanks to Democrats mercilessly attacking women who run as Republicans, House Committee chairs all went to men.

    Same reason Republicans didn’t get the first hispanic on the USSC: Democrats viciously attacked him when he was nominated and the name was withdrawn.

    GM shifts from just plain stupid to outright insane.

    General Motors is giving its Chevrolet Spark a jolt of electricity.

    An all-electric version of the mini-car will debut this week at the Los Angeles Auto Show. It goes on sale this summer in California, Oregon, Canada and South Korea, where it’s made. The car will start for less than $25,000 in the U.S. when a $7,500 federal tax credit is factored in.

    Bankrupt San Bernardino, and several other CA cities aren’t far behind.

    Seven demonstrators from the group Act Up came into the personal office of House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) in the Longworth House Office Building around 12:30 pm. This is not the Speaker’s Office, but his “regular” office alongside other rank and file members.

    Next phase on the War Against Light Bulbs…. the next Ebay Twinkie craze? Stock up now and sell them on Ebay once they manufacture of 100 watt normal bulbs is banned.

    Ms. Farley, the Fox Chapel architect, insists she’s “pretty green. I’m obsessive about recycling. I don’t use central air-conditioning. But I draw the line at bad lighting. It’s a quality-of-life issue, because people are lit so harshly.

    “These light bulbs drain all the color out of your face, and I know I don’t want my clients sitting in a room that looks like the crypt keeper.”

    “If light bulbs were cars, surely the Utilitech Pro LED 800 lumens light would be a 1958 Buick.

    It’s heavy, fussy looking, doesn’t pack much horsepower at 60 watts — and it even has fins.

    Still, as energy-guzzling 100-watt incandescent bulbs disappear from local store shelves in the first phase of a federal ban on all such bulbs — passed by Congress during the Bush administration and in effect since January 2012 — light-emitting diodes (LEDs) and compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFLs) are in our future, whether we like it or not.

    And some people don’t like it one bit.

    “I am stockpiling those bulbs,” said Liz Farley, a Pittsburgh architect and interior designer, who has built up a collection of about 100 boxes of 40- and 60-watt bulbs in her Fox Chapel basement.

    “I’m not real happy about this,” added Louis Talotta, a Pittsburgh and Palm Beach-based interior designer, who was startled to discover one of his Squirrel Hill clients had replaced the incandescent bulbs in his lamps with CFLs, distorting the colors of the paintings, the fabrics and the porcelain and turning a delicately lit celadon green room with chinoiserie wallpaper “a dirty, mucky green.”

    That article illustrates the inherent racism of the left to a tee.
    They fret over the thought that 18 black Democrapt candidates in the running could cancel each other out with the Democrapt white woman coming out on top ?
    Good grief libs. What a monster you have created just to win elections.
    That being said, I won’t be shedding any tears as her own “beloved” party drags her (Sharia style) through the streets of Chitcago!

    Naked moonbats storm Boehner’s office to protest spending cuts

    From the linked article:

    ““Boehner, Boehner, don’t be a dick! Budget cuts will make us sick!” Classy.”

    Liberals aren’t very good at logic. I’m pretty sure that these folks have AIDS due to poor choices that they have made. In fact, how can a spending cut make them sick? The AIDs virus isn’t transmitted by spending cuts in government programs.

    White House Says ‘There Are No Unanswered Questions About Ambassador Rice’s Appearance on Sunday Shows’

    I’m going to have to agree with the White House on this one. Susan Rice has shown that she doesn’t care what the truth is, that she will blindly puppet whatever the administration tells her to say. Just what we need…a teleprompter ambassador for the TOTUS.

  17. Sam Adams says:
    “Mike Malloy 26 Nov 2012: …these Tea Bag bastards who by the way, I just wish they would all just go away – or, like in Passover, I just wish there was an angel of the Lord that would pass over – instead of killing the first born in all the households of Egypt just wipe out all the Tea Baggers. Just, you know, the terrible swift sword, just [Mike makes exaggerated “swishing” sounds] – lob their heads off!”

    Come to think of it…I’m more than happy to stand at attention along with Mike Malloy and other leftists and see who’s head the angel of the Lord would lob off.

    Unlike Malloy, I trust in the judgement of the Lord to separate the righteous from the wicked.

    Way ahead of you. Check out the top story on this thread.

    Liberal moonbats just don’t get it, but intelligent people do:

    Two-thirds of millionaires left Britain to avoid 50% tax rate

    When you increase taxes prohibitively, you reduce the tax base significantly. It’s economics, not rocket science.

    Or, as someone once said, it’s the economy, STUPID!

    Those who depend on government ultimately get what they deserve:

    800 NYC Apartment Buildings Still Lack Heat After Sandy

    And what is government’s latest contribution? Instead of HELPING people get things resolved, government THREATENS, causing people to have to change gears and focus, dealing with protecting themselves AGAINST THE GOVERNMENT instead of resolving the problems.


    EBAY is RACIST. And inconsistent. Beck proved his point:

    On Tuesday evening, Glenn Beck featured an Obama bobble head doll in a jar of yellow liquid, meant as a parody of the controversial “artwork” that defaced a crucifix in a glass of urine. Beck’s piece was meant to highlight the hypocrisy of those who rail against disparaging figures who they hold dear, but do not hold themselves to the same standard when disparaging figures others hold dear.

    The Justice Department said on Tuesday that it was opening an investigation of the Albuquerque Police Department, after officers were involved in more than two dozen shootings, many of them fatal, over the past two years.

    An outcry over the use of force erupted in March after The Albuquerque Journal reported that the police union was making payments to officers who had been involved in shootings. In one case last year, a local television station reported that an officer who had been involved in a fatal shooting listed his occupation on Facebook as “human waste disposal.”

    Media still pushing the lie as is some mock “court” in Egypt:

    An Egyptian court convicted in absentia Wednesday seven Egyptian Coptic Christians and a Florida-based American pastor, sentencing them to death on charges linked to an anti-Islam film.

    Have they convicted those who actually killed people in Benghazi? No, the court is not interested in that.

    In a telephone interview Wednesday, Jones said the ruling “shows the true face of Islam” – one that he views as intolerant of dissent and opposed to basic freedoms of speech and religion.

    “We can speak out here in America,” Jones said. “That freedom means that we criticize government leadership, religion even at times. Islam is not a religion that tolerates any type of criticism.”

    Golf chiefs plan limits on belly and broomhandle clubs. Players would be banned from anchoring any strokes to a pivot point, such as their chest or midriff, from 2016.

    In 1968, a “croquet” style of putting was outlawed and snooker or billiards-type strokes are also banned.

    Have ANY of you ever done this? Used one of these? New to me!

    The things nutty nudists come up with!

    BBC hid the naked truth in pursuit of profit, claim naturists. Naturists have accused the BBC of “falsifying history” by putting clothes on the actors appearing in Andrew Marr’s History of The World.

    So what? So they avoided a bunch of complaints from prudes by putting clothes on people who probably went around largely naked, proving that global warming is good because it lets you walk around with less clothes so you don’t have to spend so much time collecting the materials for them, making them and thus can concentrate ON SURVIVING.

    Carnival Forbids Drag Dress On Ship

    They did the right thing initially. However, if you read the story, you will find they caved eventually.

    The Miami-based company came under fire in the gay and lesbian community when they told passengers who had booked to attend the Drag Stars at Sea that they must “refrain from engaging in inappropriate conduct in public areas” — or be kicked off the ship Glory.

    What’s to apologize for?

    “Carnival attracts a number of families with children and for this reason; we strive to present a family friendly atmosphere. It is important to us that all guests are comfortable with every aspect of the cruise. Although we realize this group consists solely of adults, we nonetheless expect all guests to recognize that minors are onboard and, refrain from engaging in inappropriate conduct in public areas… Arrangements have been made for drag performances in the main theater featuring stars from LOGO TV. These functions will be private and only the performers are permitted to dress in drag while in the theater. Guests are not allowed to dress in drag for the performances or in public areas at any time during the cruise.”

    This is us all too soon thanks to Obama/Democrats and, most of all, THOSE WHO KEEP VOTING FOR THEM!

    Fitch downgrades Argentina by five notches and predicts default:

    Fitch has downgraded Argentina, which is locked in a court battle in New York over its debt, and said the country would probably default. US judge Thomas Griesa of Manhattan federal court last week ordered Argentina to set aside $1.3bn for certain investors in its bonds by December 15, even as Argentina pursues appeals. Those investors don’t want to go along with a debt restructuring that followed an Argentine default in 2002. If Argentina is forced to pay in full, other holders of debt totaling more than $11bn are expected to demand immediate payment as well. Argentina is in a deepening recession and is grappling with social unrest. Besides the court case, Fitch cited a “tense and polarized political climate” and public dissatisfaction with high inflation, weak infrastructure and currency.

    All the problems there are the same problems Obama/Democrats are creating here.

  21. Bob Roberts says:

    POWERLINE explains how re-electing Obama was pretty much the same as giving G.W. Bush a 4th term.

    Obama keeps doing stuff George Bush was doing, the only difference is the left villified Bush when he did it and they praise – well most of them, not all of them – Obama for doing it.

    Drone strikes. Climate policy. These are but two areas where Obama emulates Bush:

    Yesterday Obama signed a bill that will block the European Union’s attempt to impose a climate tax on international air travel. But that’s not the only step the Obama Administration has taken that adopts the Bush Administration’s outlook. When Bush initiated the Asia-Pacific Partnership around 2004, a group of nations that included a higher share of global greenhouse gas emissions than the Kyoto Protocol’s “Annex I” group, environmentalists screamed that Bush was doing an end-run around the UN. Can’t have that! Rather than junk the Asia-Pacific Partnership, the Obama Administration renamed it the “Major Economies Forum,” and kept at it, with the sensible understanding that there can be no serious climate agreement without the real participation of the BRIC block (Brazil, Russia, India, and China; of those, only Russia was a party to the Kyoto Protocol).

    And the CIA has shut down its Center on Climate Change and National Security. Guess the top spooks aren’t so spooked by the subject any more.

    If a Republican president were doing all this (as indeed Bush started to do), environmentalists would be screaming from the rooftops. But since it’s Obama, not so much.

    WaPo Ombudsman Patrick Pexton shills for terrorists.

    The story here is told in the comments that follow his screed:

    The journalist who was photographed holding his dead child was a Hamas Al-Aqsa commissar. People are dying because Hamas deliberately staged missiles and command centers in populated areas to ensure such casualties to enrage the easily fooled.

    Do I blindly accept that the infant died from Israeli shrapnel or detonated debris, no. Because for all we know there were secondary explosions because Hamas staged it’s weapons lockers near that “house” and it may have been an Iranian missile tail fin that killed the infant.

    Pexton claims that the POST verified the bombing. What does he mean by that. DId WAPO ascertain beyond doubt that Israeli ordnance hit the home, or perhaps it was a Gazan rocket that fell short?

    What we DO know is the photograph was clearly staged. It is entirely possible, even likely, that this dead child died of completely unrelated causes and it’s corpse was mutilated to be used to score some propaganda points.

    How they turn reality into nonsense propaganda.

    If Romney would have pushed this he would have crushed Obama.
