    “You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that, my dear friend, is about the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it…”

    Moonbats caused it – and the timing couldn’t be worse.

    CA balance sheet 127.2 BILLION in the red.

    Thanks to Democrats/moonbats, who are sure that Obama will not let CA go down – after all, we’re “too big to fail” so of course you other taxpayers in other states have to bail our slimy politicians out of the mess they made, right?

    C’mon now, too big to fail. Eh?

    Moment of silence please. Pray silently if you’re religious.

    Oldest person in USA dies at age 113, just short of 114th.

    Moonbat effort leads to tragedy.

    A man who was found dead hanging by a rope off an 18-story Sacramento high-rise appears to have been a graffiti tagger, Sacramento police said Monday.
    Fire Battalion Chief Marc Bentovoja said the man appears to have died accidentally of asphyxiation when he created a harness from the rope and lowered himself down the east side of the office building. The man’s death comes less than three weeks after police say a 22-year-old convicted graffiti tagger fell to his death while spray-painting a freeway bridge in Sacramento.

    Resolving this one moonbat at a time, THANKS DARWIN!

    What the heck are those moonbats up to anyway?

    Moonbats spitting mad – yet another species they declared a victim of humanity found not to be extinct after all!

    A crow known to science only by two specimens described in 1900 and long thought extinct has reappeared on a remote, mountainous Indonesian island. Rediscovery of the Banggai crow was confirmed by a zoologist at Michigan State University, who compared two birds secured in 2007 on Peleng Island with the two preserved specimens at the American Museum of Natural History in New York. Distinctive eye coloration differentiates the species from the similar slender-billed crow, which also flutters around Indonesia.

    The case of Fallon Fox – who used to be a man and now identifies as a woman – has brought up legal issues and safety concerns, experts said.

    But MMA fighter Allana Jones has decided she will face off against Fox at the University of Miami’s BankUnited Center May 24, promoter Jorge de la Noval of the Championship Fighting Alliance told NBC 6 Monday night.

    Just wrong.

  7. Sam Adams says:

    Well, folks, its time for Earth Day celebrations. Time for the school kids to make posters about keeping the air clean, the water pure, and conserving our resources.

    Has it ever occurred to any of these moonbats that:

    1. There is no such thing as “clean” air? All air has particles in it. The “cleanest” environments have at least 10 particles per cubic foot. Even air with a minimum of particles contains trace amounts of CO2, CO, and who knows whatever other compounds, aka contaminants. Any time you provide a definition of “clean” someone can come along and pronounce a “cleaner” definition.

    2. Pure water is a bit easier to define. Pure water consists of 100% H2O. A variety of processes can produce essentially pure water. Problem is that you better not drink pure water. It will literally suck the minerals out of your bones. Pure water is dangerous. Plus it doesn’t taste good.

  8. Sam Adams says:

    One other “Earth Day” thought. Schools can’t celebrate Thanksgiving or Christmas or Easter any more. My religious belief is that the earth is here for us to be stewards of and to use. It is contrary to my religious beliefs to lock away huge tracts of land, along with the resources that they contain; doing so is contrary to God’s plan. Therefore, Earth Day and its celebrations are promoting a religion which is contrary to my views. Public schools should stop promoting their Earth Religion.

  9. Sam Adams says:

    Today I listened to several radio ads talking about this month being Organ Donor Awareness month, where DHS specifically is thanking organ donors for their eyes, skin, and organs.

    Doesn’t it seem odd to be thanking organ donors?

    After all, how many are still around to listen to the radio spots from DHS?

    But still….it is another way for your government to spend your money.

    “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it on to our children in the bloodstream. The only way they can inherit the freedom we have known is if we fight for it, protect it, defend it and then hand it to them with the well-taught lessons of how they in their lifetime must do the same. And if you and I don’t do this, then you and I may well spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it once was like in America when men were free.”

    HOOKSETT, NH (CBS) – A Hooksett, New Hampshire woman was arrested for allegedly calling 911 because she wanted help ordering Chinese food.

    Now this is what I call a low information voter. In fact she looks so like your typical Democrat that I wonder why they don’t have 911 callers register to vote during the call.

    I mean, might as well, no..?

    State Sen. Malcolm Smith arrested in ‘bribery plot’ to rig mayor race – Democrat to run as Republican

    The plan was to get Smith — one of the state’s top Democrats — placed on the GOP mayoral ballot, sources said.

    “Elected officials are called public servants because they are supposed to serve the people. Public service is not supposed to be a shortcut to self-enrichment,” FBI Assistant Director George Venizelos said in a written statement today.

    “People in New York, in Spring Valley — in any city or town in this country — rightly expect their elected or appointed representatives to hold themselves to a higher standard. At the very least, public officials should obey the law.

    Lego To Stop Production Of ‘Star Wars’ Set Due To Anti-Muslim Backlash

    Lego will reportedly cease production of a popular “Star Wars” toy set after Muslim communities complained about the product.

    The Independent reports that several Muslim groups in Austria claimed “Jabba’s Palace” was anti-Muslim as it showed popular “Star Wars” character Jabba the Hut in a mosque-like lair with a hookah, guns and an imprisoned Chewbacca.

    “This sort of thing does not belong in a child’s bedroom,” Melissa Gunes, spokeswoman for Austria’s Turkish Cultural Association, told The Independent. “The game is pedagogical dynamite. It depicts Muslims as terrorists.”

    First, there’s not a muslim in it. Second, all too often muslims ARE terrorists, that’s the only reason this is an issue.

    Flattering Obama Images Flourish As White House Media Access Narrows

    A photo of the Obamas hugging that was released on Election Day 2012 has become the world’s most popular tweet on Twitter. A dressed-up version of Barack Obama’s State of the Union speech, packed with charts and graphs, is huge on YouTube. A playful picture of the president cavorting with a 3-year-old in a Spiderman costume is a favorite online.

    It’s all courtesy of the Obama image machine, serving up a stream of words, images and videos that invariably cast the president as commanding, compassionate and on the ball. In this world, Obama’s family is always photogenic, first dog Bo is always well-behaved and the vegetables in the South Lawn kitchen garden always seem succulent.

    You’ll have to look elsewhere for bloopers, bobbles or contrary points of view.

    46 traitors in the Senate who voted to turn the 2nd Amendment over to the UN.

    Senator Jim Inhofe (R-OK) offered Amendment 139 that was passed with a 53 to 46 vote. His Amendment contained language to affirm that foreign treaties would not trump the U.S. Constitution.

    He went on to say, “I want to very briefly read this so nobody over there or over here misunderstands what this amendment does. This is right out of the amendment. Uphold the Second Amendment rights, that is one thing. And secondly, prevent the United States from entering into the United Nations arms trade treaties.”

    But many Democrats simply didn’t agree with Inhofe’s insistence that the U.S. Constitution trump the UN.

    These 46 US Senators voted against this: “To uphold Second Amendment rights and prevent the United States from entering into the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty.”

    If this doesn’t qualify as treason, nothing does.

    PRESIDENT TO TEACH YOUNG PEOPLE HOW TO BUDGET RESPONSIBLY (Try reading this with a straight face)

    President Barack Obama, who has increased the national debt by $53,377 per household, has proclaimed April “National Financial Capability Month,” during which his administration will do things such as teach young people “how to budget responsibly.”

    Listed among the “popular topics” on is “Managing Debt and Credit,” which includes a link to a page on the Federal Reserve’s website called “Getting the most from your credit card.” Tip 2 on that page is: “Stay Below Your Credit Limit.”

    Thus far, Obama has not submitted his budget proposal for fiscal 2014.


    Fisker Automotive, the green-car company that has not built a car since July, has hired law firm Kirkland & Ellis to advise it on a possible bankruptcy filing, a person close to the matter said on Thursday.

    Fisker had drawn down $193 million of its $529 million federal loan before U.S. officials froze the credit line, citing delays in the launch of Fisker’s flagship car, the Karma plug-in hybrid. The remaining money was earmarked to develop Fisker’s second model, the Atlantic plug-in hybrid.

    Former Weather Underground radical Kathy Boudin — who spent 22 years in prison for an armored-car robbery that killed two cops and a Brinks guard — now holds a prestigious adjunct professorship at Columbia University’s School of Social Work.

    Boudin’s status of perp-turned-prof outraged the widow of one of her victims, Brinks guard and dad of three Peter Paige, who was gunned down by her accomplices from the Black Liberation Army on Oct. 20, 1981, in Rockland County.

    Boudin acted as a getaway driver in the heist.

    “She doesn’t deserve a job at all,” said Josephine Paige, 74, when told of Boudin’s posts. “She doesn’t deserve anything, nothing at all. I think she should be back in an institution.”

    Welcome to fundamentally transformed Amerikka, Mrs. Paige.

    Boudin’s son, Chesa, was raised by America-bashing and flag-trashing Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn, won a prestigious Rhodes Scholarship, graduated from Yale, and is now a Yale Law School fellow.

    No one can say libs don’t take care of their own.




    At Sunday’s ceremony, Brig. Gen. Mohammad Reza Naghdi, as promised, presented “The Wet Gunpowder” award to first lady Michelle Obama. The award is given to those who “unknowingly and unwillingly” have contributed greatly to the Islamic Revolution. The prize was sent to the Swiss Embassy in Tehran to be handed over to American officials for delivery to Mrs. Obama.

    As WND reported March 14, Naghdi had announced that Iran would give the first lady a special award for allegedly exposing a direct link between Hollywood and the White House. He cited her announcement of the “anti-Iran” movie “Argo” Oscar for Best Picture in a live feed from the White House Feb. 24.

    “Mrs. Obama’s action was awesome,” Naghdi said with what he described as irony, “and if we had spent billions of dollars, we could not show a link and allegiance between Hollywood and the U.S. government and the White House, especially since they have always denied the allegations.”

    Wing beat me to it. … oh, well.

    The Firearm Risk Protection Act, pushed by Rep. Carolyn Maloney and seven co-sponsors, follows efforts at the state level to create the controversial new kind of insurance for gun owners.

    “For too long, gun victims and society at large have borne the brunt of the costs of gun violence,” Maloney said in a written statement. “My bill would change that by shifting some of that cost back onto those who own the weapons.”

    I’m sure criminals will get right on buying Ms. Baloney’s insurance. Why would ordinary law abiding citizens need insurance other than Demonrats like Baloney will also push bills to strip them from their Second Amendment rights to self-defense so that ambulance chasing shysters can sue on behalf of “mischevious youths” who might catch a few bullets by armed citizens while trying to shoot baby’s in the face as part of a gang initiation.

    A Salt Lake City School Board member filed a federal complaint last month against his own district for what he claims are discriminatory practices against the Boy Scouts at a local elementary school.

    Board member Michael Clara, a moderate Republican, filed the complaint after hispanic 30 Cub Scouts were blocked from meeting at Mountain View Elementary School because Principal James Martin said the district’s anti-bias policy conflicted with the Scouts’ ban on gay members and leaders.

    In his complaint, Clara states that in mid-March two Latino parents reported to him that the principal banned the Cub Scouts from the school. Clara then spoke to the principal, who said that the Cub Scout meetings violated the anti-bias policy of district. Clara argued his decision was a misapplication of the district policy as there are faith-based groups that meet at the school that share similar views to that of the Boy Scouts on gay members.

    “This is contrary to federal law,” Clara said, citing the Boy Scout Act that prevents schools receiving federal funding from preventing the Boy Scouts from meeting at the institutions.

    Clara’s complaint took both Mountain View Elementary and the school board by surprise. The particular Cub Scout troop had not met at the school for over year due to staffing issues and only recently met with Martin to express an interest in once again meeting at the school for one hour each week.

    Martin purportedly explained that the groups could rent space at the school, but he needed to check if a partnership with the Boy Scouts would conflict with the district’s anti-discrimination policy, said a statement provided to Fox News Latino by the Salt Lake City School District.

    Jim Martin – arbitrator of bias, and persecutor of Latino scouts.

    “James continues to conduct research on topics of interest, namely how culturally-relevant practices are enacted at the school organization and classroom levels. James created and leads a group of Salt Lake administrators called Leaders for Equity and Social Justice.”

    Now this make sense, the Scouts pledge to remain morally straight cuts too close to home form Dr. Martin. Nevertheless, he’s in hot water for violating the Save our Scouts Act:

    “No State or unit of general local government that has a designated open forum, limited public forum, or nonpublic forum and that is a recipient of assistance under this title shall deny equal access or a fair opportunity to meet to, or discriminate against, any youth organization, including the Boy Scouts of America or any group officially affiliated with the Boy Scouts of America, that wishes to conduct a meeting or otherwise participate in that designated open forum, limited public forum, or nonpublic forum.”

    Who are the most racist?

    Apparently it’s the white liberals – who knew?

    “They need to shut me up, they need to get rid of me. They can’t find anything else to delegitimize me, so they take my words, misinterpret them, and try to make it seem that I’m a bigot,” he said.

    After Levin asked him about white liberals, Carson, who is black, said, “They’re the most racist people there are because they put you in a little category, a box. How could you dare come off the plantation?”

    Socialist comes clean, under investigation.

    Former French Budget Minister Jerome Cahuzac has been placed under formal investigation over alleged tax fraud, his lawyer has said.

    It comes as Mr Cahuzac admitted to having had a foreign bank account.

    The ex-minister had until now denied a report by investigative website Mediapart that he kept an undeclared Swiss bank account until 2010.

    Mr Cahuzac – who gained a reputation as a vocal crusader against the use of overseas tax havens – quit in March.

    Just like Obama and the Democrats – do as we say, not as we do.

    Mr Cahuzac said he made the admission about the bank account during a meeting with investigating magistrates on Tuesday.

    In a statement, he said he had about 600,000 euros (£509,000; $770,000) in the account.

    He also asked for forgiveness from French President Francois Hollande and his former government colleagues.

    “I was caught in a spiral of lies and lost my way. I am devastated by guilt,” the statement said, quoted by the AFP news agency.

    “It was an unspeakable mistake to think that I could avoid confronting a past that I wanted to consider behind me. I will now face this reality with all transparency,” the statement said.

    Mr Cahuzac had earlier insisted that he had done nothing wrong. He was a plastic surgeon before entering politics.

    The ironic thing is that yes, it SHOULD not be wrong to have foreign bank accounts. But, to some people, it is. And he preached that it was wrong all the time he had one.

    PC policing up the AP style book.

    The Associated Press, the largest news-gathering outlet in the world, will no longer use the term “illegal immigrant.”

    The news came in the form of a blog entry authored by Senior Vice President and Executive Editor Kathleen Carroll on Tuesday afternoon, explaining that the decision is part of the company’s on-going attempt to rid their Stylebook of labels.

    So what do you call an alien who is here illegally then and how is TELLING THE TRUTH labeling someone?

    Moonbat logic:

    “The Stylebook no longer sanctions the term ‘illegal immigrant’ or the use of ‘illegal’ to describe a person. Instead, it tells users that ‘illegal’ should describe only an action, such as living in or immigrating to a country illegally,” Carroll wrote.

    The company’s decision comes after years of controversy over the term. Fusion, the ABC-Univision joint venture, does not use “illegal immigrant” because we believe it dehumanizes those it describes and we find it to be linguistically inaccurate.

    If you are an immigrant who is here illegally, that makes you an illegal immigrant. It’s not what you are called, IT IS THE STATUS YOU CHOSE TO ADOPT!

    Some critics of the term, like journalist Maria Hinojosa, argue that those newsrooms that have continued to classify people as “illegal” lack diversity.

    Nearly half of Latino voters polled last year in a Fox News Latino survey said that they find the term “illegal immigrant” offensive.

    Well many of us find it offensive that people continue to immigrate here illegally!
