Rick Perry

According to Rick Perry: “I’ll work every day to try to make Washington, D.C., as inconsequential in your life as I can.”

That is the attitude I want in a politician.

Col. Allen West Says the Obvious about Debbie Wasserman-Schultz

According to Col. Allen West, Debbie Wasserman-Schultz is not smart. See below



This comes as no surprise to us. Fuzz-head Wasserman-Schultz is the only three-time winner of our coveted Moron of the Day award.

After winning one of our awards, most folks think twice before they speak. No one wants to win it twice, or so we think. Not Debbie.

At the rate she is going, we will have to create a once-only Moron-of-a-Lifetime award just for her.

Quote of the Day: Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter

The following quotes come from Mayor Nutter's remarks from the Mount Carmel; Baptist Church pulpit where he excoriated some (obviously not all) of the black, urban youth of his city in which he said about flash mobs that attack the innocent on Philadelphia streets, “You’ve damaged yourself, you’ve damaged another person, you’ve damaged your peers and, quite honestly, you’ve damaged your own race” He also said,
“Take those God darn hoodies down, especially in the summer. Pull your pants up and buy a belt ’cause no one wants to see your underwear or the crack of your butt. Nobody.”

“If you walk into somebody’s office with your hair uncombed and a pick in the back, and your shoes untied, and your pants half down, tattoos up and down your arms and on your neck, and you wonder why somebody won’t hire you? They don’t hire you ’cause you look like you’re crazy!”

“The Immaculate Conception of our Lord Jesus Christ took place a long time ago, and it didn’t happen here in Philadelphia. So every one of these kids has two parents who were around and participating at the time. They need to be around now.”

“Parents who neglect their children, who don’t know where they are, who don‘t know what they’re doing, who don‘t know who they’re hanging out with, you’re going to find yourself spending some quality time with your kids in jail.”

To fathers: “If you’re not providing the guidance,and you’re not sending any money, you’re just a sperm donor.”
These observations are certainly not limited to black youths, either, although some are addressed to the worst of urban styles.

False Claims of Terrorism in Debt Deal

Charles Krauthammer:
You had one congressman, I wrote it down — Mike Doyle in the meeting with the vice president yesterday actually said, ‘We have negotiated with terrorists. The small group of terrorists has made it impossible for us to spend any money.’ Well, that’s a hell of a definition of terrorism. Normally a terrorist says, ‘I want you to convert. I want your daughter, I want your money, I want your submission.’ This guy says a bunch of terrorists in Congress have stopped us from spending money we don’t have. You think that’s an argument that will carry with the American people? I think not.”
Of course, terrorism is not about goals, but a strategy or tactic. These Congresscritters who cheapen the word "terrorist" truly make me angry.

Hey, you clowns, terrorism is a tactic that involves actual creation of terror through death or destruction. What you Congressclowns don't like is the game of chicken, known in negotiating circles a "brinksmanship." Sometimes brinksmanship is the only thing that brings parties close enough to be able to make a deal.

I don't know if this current debt deal is good or bad. I don't know what good and bad mean in this context. I don't know who, if anyone won. Usually in Congress any deal means the American people lose, but that remains to be seen.

What is disappointing is that I don't see anything in the current deal that will shrink government.

Opposition to Voter ID is Racist?

I read a recent Mother Jones article (don't ask why) that noted that voter ID laws have a negligible effect on elections.  OK so far.  T...
