Obama's Driver/Ditch Analogy Meets Reality

Giving money and power to government is like giving whiskey and car keys to teenage boys. --P. J. O'Rourke

Of course P. J. may need to include girls now that we have the estimatable Nancy Nana Pelosi buying all that booze for the rest of the kids at the party.

Michigan Dems In Fraud Against McCotter & Other Republicans.

It is still uncertain if McCotter's opponent Natalie Mosher' campaign was involved, but party officials in Oakland County, Michigan had to fire one of their employees (after it was published that the Democrat Party official) started a fake "Tea Party" to try and siphon votes away from McCotter and other Republicans.

DEM commissioners call for party worker's removal

"[W]e ask for the immediate removal of Jason Bauer as an employee of the Oakland County Democratic Party. Our caucus members and candidates demand the highest ethical standards of ourselves, our government and our party, and any violation of those standards must have real and significant consequences.”

Yep, turn on the lights and watch them scatter.

Rich Care For Petraeus Moist With Crocodile Tears

Oh, weep for the brave warrior as Frank Rich weeps. Must we allow our brave warriors fall on the sword of neo con stupidity? If only we had the stamina to wake each morning and look hard into the mirror and see ourselves as Rich can only see himself.

How Fox Betrayed Petraeus

It’s poignant, really. Even as America’s most venerable soldier returned from the front to valiantly assume the role of Willy Loman, the product he was selling was being discredited and discontinued by his own self-proclaimed allies at home.

Poignant? Ah, exactly the word I'd expect Frank to use to describe any situation of a soldier. Really, I expect that type of sensitivity from Frank. Frank is so sensitive he must, late on dark nights, quote to himself, "I realized what a ridiculous lie my whole life has been" and wonder if his brother was right at last.

Another Soon To Be A Party Switching Democrat?

Police: Fla. congressional candidate robbed at gunpoint while waiting for campaign appearance

At the very least he should be the primary sponsor of conceal-carry. If elected to anything.

Individual $44K Per Person National Debt Obligation Far From What It Should Be

To paraphrase John Paul Jones, Obama whispers to aides, "I have not yet begun to spend!"

USA DEBT: $13,310,379,000,000.00

$44,000 PER CITIZEN...
Actually, Americans need to cough up more than a mere $44K per person on the debt when it is costing about $75K per day for the Obamas to vacation and that's just Marie Antoinette Michelle. That's a $31K disparity. Time to buck up John and Jane Q. Publick.
Of course the Obamas, even on vacation, can't swim in the sea of poo surrounding Martha's Vineyard, but us mere taxpayers already know that feeling.

Sociology Students Feel Put Upon By Visit To Creation Museum And Ethnography 'Proves' It

I wonder if sociology students are upset when creationists are forced to listen to the evolution theory in government supported classes or are confronted with a belief they disagree with in museums on the National Mall that spout evolution as fact?

Would they be upset? No, because that would mean that they would have to believe the rubes have a belief different than theirs, but just as viable. That is something they only will not do, but they will also openly laugh at such an idea. They are that sure that they are correct that it allows them to mock, belittle, laugh at and get articles so full of crock as the one below published about their publishing a "scientific" paper base on ethnographyy. Ethnography, a subjective narrative based on one's bias, is considered a scientific research by those that agree with its findings. An example might be, "Jews act badly, in my opinion, towards Palestinians, ergo my bias against Jews and for Palestinians is correct."

When sociology students visit Creation Museum
A professor of sociology led a field trip through Kentucky's Creation Museum, a fundamentalist Christian facility. The professor found that non-fundamentalists felt uncomfortable there. Museum officials say they've received death threats and the site sometimes draws anti-Creationist protesters.

Barton combined hours of observation and analysis of museum materials into an ethnography, a detailed narrative about a place and its culture that is often used in sociology. Unlike other research methods, the ethnography does not strive for impartiality; rather, the researchers recognize and reflect on their own reactions to what they see. (read the entire article)

“Politically acceptable” is only acceptable to one side and they do not pray to God to be right.
