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.

A Travesty

Score One For The Bad Guys

  US Army Deserter Bowe                       Bergdahl

 THE GOOD NEWS –

NBC News is reporting this morning that: “Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, who was held captive by enemy forces in Afghanistan for five years, will be charged with desertion, a senior defense officials tell NBC News. The officials say the charges could be referred within a week.”

Great!


THE BAD NEWS –

NBC also is reporting that  “While a court-martial could lead to imprisonment, defense and military officials tell NBC News it is likely Bergdahl would be given consideration for the 5 years he spent in captivity and be permitted to leave the Army with a “less than honorable discharge.”

No Prison Time?

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?

George Zimmerman = Innocent Until Proven Guilty ??

George Zimmerman = Innocent Until Proven Guilty ??

Last night, while watching the news coverage of George Zimmerman’s murder trial acquittal on Fox News and CNN, several reporters and pundits preached a startling new line. Over George-Zimmermanand over again, they kept saying that Zimmerman “had not been found innocent” of the murdering Trayvon Martin. Rather, they reasoned that the prosecution had simply not been able to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that Zimmerman was guilty.  The implication was that Zimmerman was guilty, but the prosecutors were too inept in collecting and presenting the evidence to prove it.

Wow!  Whoa!  Stop the presses!

I always thought that the underlying principle of the American justice system was that a person was innocent until they were proven guilty of a crime. If that is indeed the case, yesterday’s jury verdict proclaimed George Zimmerman’s innocence.

Did not Zimmerman enter the courtroom

Whether you like it or not George Zimmerman was declared “innocent” by a jury of his peers  in a court of justice.

as an innocent man under the presumption of innocence doctrine?  Did not the jury thereafter find him “Not Guilty” of the charges brought?  Then I ask, did not George Zimmerman leave the courtroom yesterday just as he came in to it  – An Innocent Man under the presumption of innocence doctrine?

Wake up Fox News. Wake up CNN. Whether you like it or not George Zimmerman was declared “innocent” by a jury of his peers  in a court of justice.

Thank You American Taxpayers

Quick Quip – Thank You American Taxpayers, but you shouldn’t have done it!

$10 million cost to fight So. Calif. fire shared by all taxpayers.

$10 million cost to fight So. Calif. fire shared by all taxpayers.

I would like to extend my sincere thanks to all of the taxpayers outside of California for their kind but forced generosity in covering the $10 million costs of fighting a brush fire here in Southern California.

Three weeks ago, there was a major brush fire across town from where I live. At its height, 2,000 + firefighters from as far as 400 miles away were involved in fighting the fire which threatened 4,000+ homes and eventually consumed over 28,000 acres of brush, park land and agriculture property.

The firefight was not without cost. Although no homes were lost to the fire, the cost of fighting it was estimated to be in excess of $10 million. However, fear not for the local jurisdictions within whose borders the fire burnt. Low and behold, it was announced this week that the federal government (meaning taxpayers from as far away as Florida and Maine) will foot the bill.

I sincerely thank all taxpayers for your generosity but I also sincerely question why you should have to pay the costs of a local firefighting effort. Is that the duty of taxpayers who probably never heard of Camarillo, Point Magu or Newbury Park – the areas that their tax dollars paid to defend from the fire? Is that the role of the federal government and if so why?  Spreading the wealth? Is it the shared burden imposed by socialism? Who knows?

Thank you taxpayers but is your gift really necessary or for that matter appropriate?  You shouldn’t have done it!
