Jesse Jackson

jesse-jackson-n-word-for-me-but-not-for-theeGood ‘ole Jesse Jackson … the man who LOVES to tell people how to live, what to do … attack people and sometimes ruin their careers … is the very definition of “do as I say, not as I do.”  This “man of God” has lived a very scanalous life.  Off the top of my head, he’s:

– said Obama’s “telling n-word’s how to behave” and that he wants to “cut his nuts out.” (A former slave punishment.)

– claimed Obama was “acting white”.  (Whatever that means.)

– referred to Jewish people as “hymies” and to New York City as “Hymietown”.

– cheated on his wife.

– fathered a child out of wedlock and secretly used the money of his “non-profit” Rainbow/Coalition to pay the mother $40,000 in “moving expenses”.

– money laundering, accounting scandals, Enron contributions, racketeering …

FOX should air the entire tape! It’s about time people get to know the real Jesse Jackson!

Barack Hussein Obama

Who is this guy?

We know he’s a young guy, just 45 years old with only 2 years of federal government experience.  We know he’s a prodigy of the Chicago Political Machine.  We know he supports socialist government programs and wants to increase the federal governments rule over our lives.  We know he says he’s all about CHANGE, but what does that mean?

Maybe he’s talking about what will be left in your pocket … after YOU‘re done PAYing taxes for all his new, expensive socialist programs … nothing but CHANGE.

Harvard boy Obama started his speedy political climb with the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN).  Who is ACORN?  A large, but not well known activist organization that promotes a 1960s-style agenda of anti-capitalism, central planning, victimology, and government handouts.

ACORN grew out of the 1960s New Left group the National Welfare Rights Organization (NRWO). The aim of this group was to overburden the welfare system with so many clients that it would burst, resulting in a crisis that would force the end of America’s capitalist economy in favor of a more totalitarian socialist regime.

There is nothing mainstream about NRWO, ACORN or their agenda.

ACORN has taken a slightly different approach while maintaining the philosophy of NWRO.  Instead of attacking at the federal level, they’ve gone local.  They set up shop in the poorest communities where it’s easiest to garner votes and support with the smallest of handouts.  They engage in “in your face” confrontational tactics.  It will take an entire separate post to get into the sordid details.

Obama, with the help of ACORN and other radicals obtained huge government subsidies for private developers like Tony Rezko who was recently convicted on 16 counts of bribery, fraud, and extortion.

According to the Boston Globe, Obama’s Chicago housing projects provide a “Grim proving ground for Obama’s housing policy.

Grove Parc Plaza, one of the projects in which Obama directed large sums of taxpayer (that’s YOU) dollars, was seized by the federal government in 2006 after city inspectors found extensive problems.  Valerie Jarrett, a senior adviser on his presidential campaign is CEO of Habitat Co., the company that managed Grove Parc Plaza.  Developer Allison Davis was involved in the creation of Grove Parc Plaza and used even more government subsidies to rehabilitate a North Side building cited by city inspectors as having chronic plumbing failures resulting in raw sewage spilling into the apartments.

Some renovation.

Davis was also a partner at Obama’s former law firm and a major fund-raiser in his US Senate campaign.  Six developers including Rezko, Jarrett, and Davis together have contributed more than $175,000 to Obama’s campaigns, and raised even hundreds of thousands more.  Rezko alone has raised over $200,000 for Obama.

The talking heads on television aren’t going to tell you about this stuff, they’re too busy tinkling down their legs.

So … who exactly is Barack Hussein Obama?

Just another dirty politician if you ask me.

Real Girls Eat Meat

I’m back … finally! I ran into a MAJOR computer malfunction 10 days ago, and I’m too stubborn to give up trying to cure it myself.  Well … I DID IT!!!

Jessica_SimpsonSince it’s been so long since my last post, I thought I’d come back with a “news” story about Jessica Simpson and PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals).  I know this has already been through the press and forgotten, but hey, it’s a great excuse to post a picture of Jessica! 🙂

PETA, who’s president Ingrid Newkirk claims “A rat is a pig is a dog is a boy”, now plans to target meat-eating celebrities.  At first, I think it’s funny that they target celebrities, but then my mood quickly saddens, as I realize how many people look to these celebrities as folk-heroes and believe in all the things they say.

From The Independent:

Ms Simpson was singled out for ridicule after she was spotted wearing a T-shirt bearing the slogan “Real Girls Eat Meat”, believed to be a light-hearted dig at her boyfriend Tony Romo’s vegetarian ex-girlfriend, Carrie Underwood.

Alistair Currie, a spokesman for Peta, said: “Jessica Simpson might have a right to wear what she wants, but she doesn’t have a right to eat what she wants – eating meat is about suffering and death. Some people feel like they are standing up against a tide of political correctness when they make a statement like this – what she is really doing is standing up for the status quo.”

PETA is an extremely radical organization.  As you can read in brief here, they have been involved in many extremely violent acts against humans, including burglaries, arson (burning down a 200-unit condominium complex), and firebombs (Michigan State University).  It’s my opinion that PETA simply hates people.  And while I’m playing armchair psychologist, it must then mean they really hate themselves.

Any group that has been involved with as much destruction of property, violence, and human death as PETA, should be investigated and squashed like any other terrorist organization.  Unfortunately, the PC Crowd has taken over, so any rational attempt to treat this organization for what they are – terrorists – turns into a baseless, emotional argument about cute, furry little animals.

Peter Singer, professor of ethics at Princeton University and leading animal rights activist, has the following to say about humans and animals:

“Surely there will be some nonhuman animals whose lives, by any standards, are more valuable than the lives of some humans.”

“When the death of a disabled infant will lead to the birth of another infant with better prospects of a happy life, the total amount of happiness will be greater if the disabled infant is killed. The loss of the happy life for the first infant is outweighed by the gain of a happier life for the second. Therefore, if the killing of the hemophiliac infant has no adverse effect on others it would . . . be right to kill him.”

“[T]he life of a fetus is of no greater value than the life of a nonhuman animal at a similar level of rationality, self-consciousness, awareness, capacity. to feel, etc., and that since no fetus is a person no fetus has the same claim to life as a person.”

“Very often it’s not wrong to kill a child once it’s left the womb. Simply killing an infant is never equivalent to killing a person.”

PETA simply HATES people! It’s that plain and simple.  And the not-so-funny thing is … they don’t much care for animals either.  As the San Francisco Chronicle points out in “Better Dead than Fed“:

DON’T BE FOOLED by the slick propaganda of PETA, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals … two PETA employees were charged with 31 felony counts of animal cruelty each, after authorities found them dumping the dead bodies of 18 animals they had just picked up from a North Carolina animal shelter into a Dumpster.

The Center for Consumer Freedom … shows PETA has killed more than 10,000 animals from 1998 to 2003. “In 2003, PETA euthanized over 85 percent of the animals it took in … finding adoptive homes for just 14 percent. By comparison, the Norfolk (Va.) SPCA found adoptive homes for 73 percent of its animals and Virginia Beach SPCA adopted out 66 percent.”

[PETA president Ingrid] Newkirk also told the New Yorker the world would be a better place without people. She explained why she had herself sterilized: “I am opposed to having children. Having a purebred human baby is like having a purebred dog; it’s nothing but vanity, human vanity.”

Now you know. People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals doesn’t really like people. PETA has no use for ethics. And PETA kills animals.

Yes indeed … PETA KILLS ANIMALS!

Think again before you donate a few bucks to help the animals.  Make sure your money is going to a geniune cause, and not to an organization run by psychopaths like PETA.

Give Me a Break: No bonfire for you!

As the myth of man-made global warming continues to turn minds into mush, Seattle Parks and Recreation wants to put out the fire. Bonfire, that is.

chris_wilsonThey fuel global warming, parks department says

Even with the skies overcast and threatening rain, Khang Nguyen, 18, and Joel Juan, 19, kicked back after school at Alki Beach.

“It’s just a relaxing way to hang out with friends,” Nguyen said of the bonfire crackling in front of them one evening earlier this week.

But Seattle Parks and Recreation might do what even this week’s chilly weather couldn’t — douse the long tradition of beach bonfires at Alki and at Golden Gardens.

Park department staff is recommending reducing bonfires at the two beaches this summer and possibly banning them altogether next year.

The park board will hear the recommendation Thursday, and the city plans to run public-service announcements and hand out brochures later this month about the effects of bonfires on global warming.

According to a memo to the park board from the staff released Thursday, “The overall policy question for the Board is whether it is good policy for Seattle Parks to continue public beach fires when the carbon … emissions produced by thousands of beach fires per year contributes to global warming.”

“What, me worry?”

Today I bring you this excellent read by Thomas Sowell, who points out that character DOES matter.
Irrelevant Apologies by Thomas Sowellbillyfoxtrot
It is amazing how seriously the media are taking Senator Barack Obama’s latest statement about the latest racist rant from the pulpit of the church he has attended for 20 years. But neither that statement nor the apology for his rant by Father Michael Pfleger really matters, one way or the other. Nor does Senator Obama’s belated resignation from that church.

For any politician, what matters is not his election year rhetoric, or an election year resignation from a church, but the track record of that politician in the years before the election.

Yet so many people are so fascinated by Barack Obama’s rhetorical skills that they don’t care about his voting record in the U.S. Senate, in the Illinois state senate, the causes that he has chosen to promote over the years, or the candidate’s personal character and values, as revealed by his actions and associations.

Despite clever spin from Obama’s supporters about avoiding “guilt by association,” much more is involved than casual association with people like Jeremiah Wright and Father Pfleger.

In addition to giving $20,000 of his own money to Jeremiah Wright, as a state senator Obama directed $225,000 of the Illinois taxpayers’ money for programs run by Father Pfleger. In the U.S. Senate, Obama earmarked $100,000 in federal tax money for Father Pfleger’s work. Giving someone more than 300 grand is not just some tenuous, coincidental association.

Are Barack Obama’s views shown by what he says during an election year or by what he has been doing for decades before?

The complete contrast between Obama’s election year image as a healer of divisions and his whole career of promoting far-left grievance politics, in association with America-haters like Jeremiah Wright and Bill Ayers, are brushed aside by his supporters who talk about getting back to “the real issues.”

There is nothing more real than a man’s character and values. The track record of what he has actually done is far more real than anything he says, however elegantly he says it.
