Racism ?

Only in America…

 

…could people claim that the government still discriminates against black obama must goAmericans when they have a black President, a black Attorney General and roughly 20% of the federal workforce is black. While only 14% of the population is black 40+% of all federal entitlements goes to black Americans – 3X the rate that go to whites, and 5X the rate that go to Hispanics!

What would the Founding Fathers think…

…about a government shutdown?

With all of today’s hoopla the possibility that the federal government will shut down over funding of Planned Parenthood and other liberal programs, I cannot help but wonder

 “What Would Our Founding Fathers Think of all of this?foundingfathers1

 Our Founding Fathers envisioned a government so small, so noninvasive and so unobtrusive, that if it ever shut down over an issue like federally funding the evil gang at Planned Parenthood –

No One Would Even Notice  That The Federal Government Was Closed and Certainly No One Would Be Harmed By It.

Whatever  happened?

Quick Quip – New Word Coined

Obama_emperor-300x180

A reader who is a good friend and fellow conservative recently sent me the following note. The new word that he has discovered aptly described the system of government that Emperor Obama I has put in place and is expanding. It is such an accurate one word description of our government that it should be shared, used and hopefully become a part of our every day lexicon.

“Every once in a while somebody ​hits it right out of the park ​ …….This word is not yet found in the Oxford dictionary, so it was “Googled” and discovered to be a recently “coined” new word found on T-shirts on eBay ​….​

Read this one over slowly and absorb the facts that are within this definition! I love this word and believe that it will become ​a recognized English word.​ ​….​

Finally, we have a brand new word to describe our future.”

Ineptocracy –

(in-ep-toc’-ra-cy)

A system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

Quick Quip – Lessons From My Father…

brian_williams_katrina…that former NBC News anchor Brian Williams probably should have learned.

 

 

One time many years ago, my father was giving me a lecture on lying and said  –

“I don’t have a good enough memory to lie”.

 When I pressed him about that he simply replied that –

“to be a successful liar, you must have a very, very good memory in order to keep your stories straight. I don’t”.

It is a shame that Williams who’s first- hand accounts of events that he witnessed and/or reported on in the past seem to change from year to year and day-to-day. If he had known my father, he would have learned that –

“You Have To Have A good Memory To Be A Good Liar”.

What Do You Think ?

Coincidence, Oversight or In Your Face ?

At yesterday’s news conferences to discuss the alleged under-inflation of the footballs used by the New England Patriots in last Sunday’s playoff game which could have made the balls softer, more flexible and easier to throw and catch, both Patriots’ head coach Bill Belichick and quarterback Tom Brady stood in front of a large sign proclaiming –

“FLEXBALL”

Quick Quip… The Press Condemns Obama Over Paris Snub.

 Why ?

TOPSHOTS French President Francois Holla

          World leaders join in Paris march to show solidarity in the War Against Muslim terrorism

It is very refreshing to see and hear the unprecedented criticism in and by the press of Obama’s decision to boycott the memorial march in Paris last weekend. Quite frankly, he is not classy enough to be in the presence of the 40 courageous, world leaders of every faith who did attend.

daily news 1.12.15However refreshing the almost universal commendation by the liberal press for his unexcused absence in Paris might be, a cynic like the Crusty Conservative has to question the motives behind this press criticism. Could it simply be that most of the victims of the muslim attacks were journalists and that the attack on Charlie was an attack on Freedom of Speech, Freedom of Expression and the Freedom of Press. As one reporter said shortly after the attack on the French magazine – “Today We Are All French”. Maybe he should have paraphrased and said – “Today We Are All Journalists” and like NATO an attack on one of us is an attack on all of us.

Would the press’ condemnation of Obama be as severe or universal if the victims of the Paris muslim attack were French Croissant Bakers?
