Piers Morgan: Don't Let The Door Hit'cha...

I know, I know... The asshat Piers Morgan is running his mealy mouth in a desperate attempt to stay relevant, like any lame celeb.

That said, I just couldn't help but rip this idiotic diatribe by the vacuous talking head in question. I have only included text and my own comments in bold. The pics Morgan used in the linked article are, of course, a ridiculous tug at your emotions.

BEGIN:


I have fired guns only once in my life, on a stag party to the Czech capital Prague a few years ago when part of the itinerary included a trip to an indoor shooting range.

So let me get this straight, mister anti-gun-man, we Amurcuns are all are too irresponsible to even so much as look at a gun...Yet you went out on a stag party, AKA a bachelor party and shot a bunch of guns. I'm sure none of you had imbibed, especially not you, Piers... Right?

Oh, and you went outside of your gun-free utopia to participate, too.

For three hours, our group were let loose on everything from Magnum 45 handguns and Glock pistols, to high-powered  ‘sniper’ rifles and pump-action shotguns.
It was controlled, legal, safe and undeniably exciting.

Hell, yes, it is!

But it also showed me, quite demonstrably, that guns are killing machines.

Duh. 

Rarely has the hideous effect of a gun been more acutely laid bare than at Sandy Hook elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut, two weeks ago – when a deranged young man called Adam Lanza murdered 20 schoolchildren aged six and seven, as well as six adults, in a sickening rampage.

Sickening. Agreed.

The Sandy Hook massacre brought back such horribly vivid memories for me of Dunblane, the worst mass shooting in Britain in my lifetime.
I was editor of the Daily Mirror on that day back in 1996 and will never forget the appalling TV footage of those poor Scottish mothers sprinting to the small primary school, many already howling with anguish at the thought of what might have happened to their five-year-old children.

Of course. 

It was a slaughter so senseless, so unspeakable, that it reduced even hard-bitten news reporters, including me, to tears.

We were all brought to tears. Who wouldn't be? 

And as I watched the parents at Sandy Hook racing to try to find their children, I saw the same images, the same terror, that engulfed Dunblane. And I felt the same tears welling up.
Then, 16 five-year-old children were slain in their classroom. Now, 20  six- and seven-year-olds. Beautiful young lives snuffed out before they had a chance to fulfil any of their potential. It made me so gut-wrenchingly angry.

It makes any sane person angry! It gives us all feelings of helpless rage! OF COURSE! 

I have four children. And I still remember the blind terror I felt when I lost my son Stanley, then aged two, for half an hour at a cricket match on a field surrounded by a small running creek. I was sure he’d drowned. But I was lucky: he finally emerged from where he’d been hiding – big, cheeky grin intact.
Every parent has a similar story. To even try to conceive of how you would feel if your child was shot multiple times in the head by a Rambo (That's a movie. No sane gun owner pictures him or herself as Rambo.)madman at school is just impossible. I honestly don’t know how you would ever carry on with life.
But my anger turned to blind rage when I saw the reaction to this hideous massacre in America.

Wait for it...

Sales of the specific weapon used, an AR-15 military-style assault rifle, rocketed at gun stores all over America in the days following the Sandy Hook shooting.
And the country’s biggest gun supplier, Brownells, said it sold more high-capacity bullet magazines in three days than it normally did in three-and-a-half years.
What is behind this apparently insane behaviour? The answer is, mainly, fear.

Yes, Piers. It is FEAR. Fear that a corrupt government will attempt to usurp our Constitutional rights by dishonorably using a tragic massacre as an excuse to take those rights away. Fear that YOUR ancestors instilled in ours. 

Cracked a history book lately? 

The well-organised, richly funded, vociferous pro-gun lobby were straight out, on my CNN show and many other media outlets, declaring that the only way those schoolchildren would have survived is if their teachers had been armed. (Seems to work pretty well for cops responding to crime. Seems to work pretty well for law-abiding citizens, too.) It’s been their answer to every mass shooting.('Cause yours has been tried and worked so well.)
After the shootings at a cinema in Aurora, Colorado, in July – where 70 people were hit, the worst victim-count in such an incident in US history, and 12 people died – sales of guns in the state rose by a staggering 41 per cent in the following month as people bought into the theory that if everyone in the theatre had been armed too, they’d have stopped the shooter. Can you imagine the scene as 200 people pulled out guns and started blazing away in a dark theatre?

No, because responsible, non-insane gun owners wouldn't do that. Again, duh. What you're suggesting is absolutely ridiculous.

The gun-lobby logic dictates that the only way to defend against gun criminals is for everyone else to have a  gun, too. Teachers, nurses, clergymen, shop assistants, cinema usherettes – everyone must be armed.
To me, this is a warped, twisted logic that bears no statistical analysis and makes no sense. Do you fight drug addiction with more cocaine? Alcoholism with more Jack Daniel’s? Of course not.

Nice straw men, there. Sheesh.

But woe betide anyone who dares suggest this. In the days following Sandy Hook, I interviewed a number of gun-rights representatives and grew increasingly furious as they  trotted out these hackneyed old  disingenuous lines.

Sure, Piers... To your pickled, liberal mind. I'm sure the 'other side' would say the same about YOU.



Finally, I erupted at one of them, a man with the unfortunate name of Larry Pratt, who runs the Gun Owners of America lobbying group.
‘You,’ I eventually declared, ‘are an unbelievably stupid man.’

Now, I have not watched that 'debate'. Mostly because I didn't want my head to explode... But it's been my observation that when libs get soundly beaten in a verbal debate, they regress to, "you're stooooopid!" 

And that was the catalyst for the full wrath of the gun lobby to crash down on my British head.

Yeah, once again, ever crack a history book? We had to do that once before...

A petition was created on an official White House website demanding my deportation for ‘attacking the 2nd Amendment of the Constitution’. This, of course, is the one that alludes to an American’s ‘right to bear arms’.

I don't think our founders meant this, Piers:




The concerted effort to get me thrown out of the country – which has so far gathered more than 90,000 signatures – struck me as rather ironic, given that by expressing my opinion I was merely exercising my rights, as a legal US resident, under the 1st Amendment, which protects free speech.

Yup. And we're exercising ours, Piers. Mostly, our outrage that you want to rip apart the Second Amendment, and then use the First to defend that rape. You have the luxury of LEAVING if you don't like it, and we're telling you so. You can't be a cafeteria American.

Put your money where your mouth is, Piers. Become a citizen, and THEN try to reform OUR Consitution. 

But no matter.

Says you...

This gun debate is an ongoing war of verbal attrition in America – and I’m just the latest target, (Ooh, a target.) the advantage to the gun lobbyists being that I’m British, a breed of human being who burned down the White House in 1814 and had to be forcefully deported en masse, as no American will ever be allowed to forget – Special Relationship notwithstanding.

Um, no. We have an excellent relationship with our Brit cousins now. Well, at least we did until Obama started dissing your Queen and PM...

It’s no exaggeration to say that America’s unique fondness for guns pretty much got cemented by hatred of us Brits and the War of Independence. 

Again, no. We Americans don't HATE Brits. Our love of guns was cemented by King George's dictatorship, and as our only means of defense against him. Most Americans love our British cousins! 

The victim card is a pretty lame defense, but one that leftist employ quickly when their argument is watery. Try harder, Piers.

But the main reason the more fervent gun-rights activists give is a fear of their own US federal government using its army to impinge on their freedom. 

Yes, and well we should. We saw how bloody an unaccountable government could be. Our Founders wished to avoid that, and gave us the tools to do so!

The problem is that America’s historical love of guns means the country is now awash with them – and with gun death.

Once again, nice load, Piers. Maybe we should ban planes, guns, and stones  and acid from Muslims. I'm sure they'd all be peaceful then, and not another kaffir or woman would die.

The bare statistics say it all. There are 311 million people in the United States and an estimated 300 million guns in circulation. (Between four million and seven million new firearms are manufactured in the US every year.)
Take out children from the population figure, and that’s comfortably more than one gun per person.

Ugh. References, please? Even if that 'bare statistic' is true, this discounts collectors, households with multiple firearms, ect... Nice try. Not every American is 'packing', and not every legal gun owner is carrying every weapon he or she owns.

Each year, on average, 100,000 Americans are shot with a gun. Of these, over 31,000 are fatalities, 11,000 of them murders and 18,000 suicides. More than a million people have been killed with guns in America since 1968 when Dr Martin Luther King and Bobby Kennedy were assassinated.

Again, nice try at those heartstrings. Now quote a few instances where murderous criminals were stopped with a firearm. C'mon, I know you can.

The US firearm murder rate is 19.5 times higher than the 22 next most populous, high-income countries in the world. And a staggering 80 per cent of firearm deaths in the combined 23 countries occur in America.
My campaign against America’s gun laws didn’t begin two weeks ago when Adam Lanza committed his carnage. It began a week before I went on air for CNN, in January 2011. A US Congresswoman called Gabby Giffords was shot in the head by another deranged young man at an outdoor event in Tucson, Arizona, and miraculously survived. Six others, including a nine-year-old girl, were murdered.

Now, Piers, tell us about Major Nidal Hassan in the Ft. Hood massacre. (But you won't, because that doesn't fit the liberal media template.) Tell us about how the police officer that stopped him with a firearm was evil. Tell us how, on a military base during a time of war, no fully trained and highly qualified soldier was permitted to carry. Those soldiers were following orders and look what it got them. Dead, that's what. The only one not obeying the order to disarm was the evil bastard that gunned down others.
  
There are many more examples. The Sikh Temple shooting.  The recent incident in Clackamas Mall... I could go on.


It was a horrifying incident but, to my astonishment, nothing happened as a result. A week or so of debate and furrowed brows, and everyone went on with life.
Since then, I’ve watched in despair as the volume of gun-related massacres has escalated. (Six of America’s 12 worst-ever mass shootings have occurred since 2007, when I first came to America to work as a judge on America’s Got Talent.)

Maybe the mass shootings are your fault, Piers. It could be coincidence, but how can we be sure? 

 And I’ve been shocked at how America’s politicians have been cowed into a woeful, shameful virtual silence by the gun lobbyists and the all-powerful National Rifle Association in particular.

You are obviously not watching the same news I am, then. I've heard a lot of vociferous calls for banning guns, magazines (or 'clips,' as idiot leftists like to call them) and the like.

The NRA targets pro-gun-control politicians on every rung of the political system and spends a fortune ensuring they either don’t get elected or get unelected. It’s been a concerted, ruthless and highly successful campaign. And to those, like me, who stand up to them, they sneer: ‘You don’t know anything about guns. Keep quiet.’
Well, I do know a bit about guns, actually. My brother’s a lieutenant colonel in the British Army and has served tours of duty in Northern Ireland, the Balkans, Iraq and Afghanistan. My sister married a colonel who trained Princes William and Harry at Sandhurst. My uncle was a major in the Green Howards.

No one is telling you to keep quiet, Piers. We're asking you to educate yourself and not speak out of ignorance. Just because you have relatives that have firearms training doesn't make you an expert by relation or association. I have a brother who is a police officer. Does that make me qualified to strap on a badge and start doing his job? 

You yourself admitted you've only used a firearm once, and in a 'party' situation. You don't exactly sound like an authority on responsible gun use.

My argument with guns is not based on some universal, pathological hatred of them. I’m not a pacifist. Guns win necessary wars and defeat tyrannical regimes like the Nazis.

So will the government start magically issuing them should anther such threat arise, and teach us to use them? Or do we hold them and use them, and teach our children? 

What was that quote by Yamamoto about a gun behind every blade of grass and not wanting to invade the American mainland? 

Oh, and by the way, explain the Swiss, and the Israelis. Just sayin'. 

Nor do I have a problem with those who use guns for hunting or for sport. I also understand, and respect, how there is an inherent national belief in America, based on their understanding of the 2nd Amendment, that everyone should be allowed to have a gun at home for the purposes of self-defence.
But where I have a big problem is when the unfortunately ambiguous wording of the 2nd Amendment is twisted to mean that anyone in America can have any firearm they want, however powerful, and in whatever quantity they want.

Then you have failed to understand the Second Amendment. 

This has led to the absurd scenario where I can’t legally buy six packets of Sudafed in an American supermarket, or a chocolate Kinder egg, or various French cheeses, because they are all deemed a health risk.

Or a sixteen-ounce soft drink. Talk to your buddy Mayor Bloomberg.

The legislators that authored those ridiculous restrictions are the same ones now pushing to ban 'big guns and clips.' 

Yet I can saunter into Walmart – America’s version of Tesco – and help myself to an armful of AR-15 assault rifles and magazines that can carry up to 100 bullets at a time.

That is such utter bullshit that I don't even know where to start decimating it, or if I should just let the idiocy of that statement stand for us all to marvel at with incredulity.


That weapon has now been used in the last four mass shootings in America – at the Aurora cinema, a shopping mall in Oregon, Sandy Hook school, and the most recent, a dreadful attack on firemen in New York.
The AR-15 looks and behaves like a military weapon and should be confined to the military and police force. No member of the public has any need for a death machine that can fire up to six rounds a second when modified and can clear a 100-bullet magazine (as used in Aurora) within a minute.
The only apparent reason anyone seems to offer up is that using such weapons is ‘fun’. One gun-rights guy I interviewed last week even said admiringly that the AR-15 was ‘the Ferrari of guns’.

So what if it is? Should we then start banning Ferraris if a few people speed in them, or should we let people open them up responsibly, say, on a private track? 

Following your logic, your boys at Top Gear would be out of a job.

Well, I’m sorry, but ‘fun’ is just not a good enough excuse any more. Not when children are being killed by gunfire all over America.


President Obama seems to agree it’s time for action. After four years of doing precisely nothing about  gun control in America, he finally snapped after Sandy Hook and said he’s keen to pursue a ban on assault weapons and high-capacity magazines. And he wants a closure of the absurd loopholes that mean 40 per cent of all gun sales in America currently have no background checks whatsoever – meaning any crackpot or criminal can get their hands on whatever they want.

Again, utter bullshit. The Sandy Hook murderer didn't pass a background check. Criminals don't obey the law. Duh. Murder is already illegal, did that stop Lanza? 

These measures, which will be resisted every step of the way, won’t stop all gun crime. Nor all mass shootings. There are too many guns out there, and too many criminals and mentally deranged people keen to use them. But the measures will at least make a start. And they will signal an intent to tackle this deadly scourge on American life.

So, no other county suffers from gun violence? How ridiculous. 

Obama should follow up by launching a Government buy-back for all existing assault weapons in circulation (as worked successfully in Los Angeles last week). I would go further, confiscating the rest and enforcing tough prison sentences on those who still insist on keeping one.

At first, I was going to laugh at the absurdity of the buy-back... Then I read the rest of the paragraph. What you are suggesting is frightening, Piers. Where does it end? People like you are why Americans insist on their gun rights! 

Either you ban these assault weapons completely, and really mean it, or you don’t. 

He should also significantly increase federal funding for mental health treatment for all Americans who need it. It’s the lethal cocktail of mental instability and ready gun availability that is the key component in almost every American mass shooting.

Oh, really, Dr. Piers? 


Nor do I think Hollywood or makers of violent video games should avoid any responsibility – their graphic images can surely only twist an already twisted mind.

That's not gonna happen. That's how your leftist buddies make their money. Start messing with their bottom line and see how quickly they dump your sanctimonious ass.

I will not stop in my own efforts to keep the gun-control debate firmly in people’s minds, however much abuse I’m subjected to.

You poor martyr.

And let me say that for every American who has attacked me on Twitter, Facebook or Fox News this past week, I’ve had many more thank me and encourage me to continue speaking out – including one lady who came up to me in Manhattan just before Christmas, grabbed my arm, and said firmly: ‘I’m with you. A lot of us are with you.’

You know what they say... Misery loves company. It seems that the ignorant do, too.

I genuinely think Sandy Hook will act as a tipping point. A Gallup poll released on Thursday showed that  58 per cent of Americans now support new gun-control laws, up from 43 per cent in 2011. That’s a big jump.

The ‘more guns, less crime’ argument is utter nonsense. Britain, after Dunblane, introduced some of the toughest gun laws in Europe, and we average just 35 gun murders a year. 
Japan, which has the toughest gun control in the world, had just TWO in 2006 and averages fewer than 20 a year. In Australia, they’ve not had a mass shooting since stringent new laws were brought in after 35 people were murdered in the country’s worst-ever mass shooting in Tasmania in 1996. Fewer guns equals less gun murder. This is not a ‘pinko liberal’ hypothesis. It’s a simple fact.

No, it's a supposition. Your supposition.


In conclusion, I can spare those Americans who want me deported a lot of effort by saying this: If you don’t change your gun laws to at least try to stop this relentless tidal wave of murderous carnage, then you don’t have to worry about deporting me.


Although I love the country as a second home and one that has treated me incredibly well, I would, as a concerned parent first – and latterly, of a one-year-old daughter who may attend an American elementary school like Sandy Hook in three years’ time – seriously consider deporting myself.

Then be my guest, Mr. Morgan. Don't let the door hit you on the way out. 





Happy New Year, Everybody!

I hope you just read that in Farnsworth's voice!

Reptile House Renovations

Our family lives fairly close to Cincinnati, so several times each year we visit the Cincinnati Zoo. 

Not so much in the summer, though. Too crowded, too hot...

Being one of the oldest zoos in the country means there are a few very interesting buildings and displays, our Reptile House being the very oldest in the country. Please watch this video:


Every single time we visit, Dave and I look up at the dome and wish we could've seen it in her day! Now, it seems, we will be able to!

Bob Costas Is An Idiot

I mean, how else do you put it?

After the terrible story in KC this week, Bob Costas had the gall to get on the air during halftime and show his ass:



Ok, I know what you're thinking... Unfathomable? Um... Sure Bob, we all hate glurge reporting...Oh, oh... This is starting to sound kinda sanctimonious and leftist agenda-driven...

Or, oh, crap. Someone forgot to give grandpa his meds.

'Current gun culture'? Perhaps if the victim had participated in this 'culture', she'd be alive right now.

Young teens fighting over music in parking lots? Where are their parents? How did they purchase weapons? I though current gun laws forbade the acquisition of weapons by minors? Is this the only reason why urban yoooooots are murdering one another?

Handguns sure as hell do enhance my safety. I've had a couple of instances in which I was very, very glad to be in possession of one! It's pretty hard to exacerbate a flaw when an attacker leaves you dead, and it is pretty hard to avoid conflict with someone who is dead-set on doing you harm without one!

Here is what I believe... If the severely mentally ill Belcher did not possess a handgun, he would've found another method to murder his girlfriend and commit suicide... Whether by knife, rope, or bare hands.

Which do we outlaw next? I wonder what Nicole Brown Simpson would say?

Costas, you are a dope.

Conservatives 'Unfit' to Parent?

Read this story from the UK, regarding foster parents who had children removed when it was found they belong to a conservative political party.

I suppose it is far more important to make sure that the young fosters are indoctrinated properly than to see that they have a loving, stable home.

I'm sure the trauma of being suddenly removed, AGAIN, will just fade away and they'll be fine...

I'm also forced to wonder how long it will take for this trend to bleed over here?

Scumbag of the Week Award Goes To...

Tingles handlers apparently forced him to apologize for his latest douchebaggery after the election:

Wednesday, November 7, 2012


I know this will sound like 'sour grapes', but it is the truth: the left stole this election. There is no question about this in my mind at all. There was voter fraud everywhere, voter intimidation, disenfranchising of the military–you name it, they did it. If this election had been run fairly, Romney would have won.
This is what is really discouraging–that our country is in the hands of frauds, cheats, opportunists, and cutthroats. May God have mercy on us all.
I honestly don't know how we survive the next four years. I really don't. National security, our allies being jettisoned and our enemies embraced, the new 'freedoms' Obama will somehow miraculously attain in his second term, decreased energy exploration, increased energy costs, increased inflation, increased taxation, decreased personal freedoms, the SCOTUS being stacked for life with leftists... 
Our only course is impeachment over Benghazi. Will that happen? I'm certainly not going to hold my breath... The HOUSE seldom looses.
I'm not sure if I should put my flag at half mast and/or upside-down right now.
My first client and I may have to part ways today. It depends on her. She's an elderly Catholic, and a vehemently ignorant Obama supporter. (I know, you can't explain that.) 
Also, she is certain that I don't even know how to work a mop. Or vacuum properly. Or sweep a floor. And I'm never EXACLY on time. In other words, she's a controlling beast that is incapable of being satisfied.
We are not supposed to talk politics/religion at work, but she will not take no for an answer. I try to deflect the conversation or pretend to not have a WHOLE LOT of opinion, but to no avail. 
She has excoriated me on politics, saying Romney is the most crooked man alive;  he owns all of the voting machines (guess he should've bought more) and she has no idea what Benghazi even is. She's rudely dug at me over my religious denomination multiple times. If she starts up today, I may just have to walk out and take the hit on hours. My supervisor knows 'how she is'. Hopefully she can find someone else for me to see.

Early Voting in SW Ohio

My previous post was a link to a story of possible voting fraud by Dems here in the swing state of Ohio using non-English speaking Somali (code word: Muslim) 'immigrants'. Please check the link for details.

Having never voted early, I decided to do a little recon yesterday. So, after an early day of work I drove to the county BOE to cast an early in person ballot. The road leading to the Butler Co. BOE is off a highway connector that goes instantly rural after I turned off onto it. For yards and yards there were political signs driven into the ground, mostly for candidates and just a few for issues. There were so many, in fact, I couldn't pick out which candidate had more. This went literally all the way up to the BOE property.

The process started out with plastic tables set up in the foyer. No workers were present in this area.There were stacks of pens thrown about haphazardly, and piles of early voting ballot applications. The apps were a single page, and one had to fill out their name and address, and sign it. Although the form indicated the early ballot would be mailed to the person requesting it, one had to assume from the hastily hand-made signage in the foyer that we were to take them into a hallway with a connected room cleared for voting.

Once I found the room, there were signs posted explicitly warning people entering NOT to wear political buttons, shirts, ect. There were three cloisters of voting machines as one typically finds at the polling station on election day.

The facility was surprisingly busy; I even had to wait in a small queue on a Thursday morning. I didn't expect to see that.

One of about four workers at a table set up with laptops and card readers asked me over. He took my paper and did not even glance at it. At this point I would've been asked for ID at my regular polling place, as I have been every single time I've voted, so I started to fish out my wallet. Instead, the poll worker simply handed me the ballot card, told me to insert it into a machine and report to a table by the exit door when I'd finished. I did not have to prove my identity or residence. I did not have to show a licence, state ID, or even so much as a utility bill.

So at this point I picked an empty machine and cast my ballot. No problems at all there; everything turned up as I indicated. I submitted the ballot, ejected the ballot card and reported to the final table to turn it in. This table was not manned. Instead, one of the poll workers would occasionally shout at us to put our cards in a basket and sign a form on the table, and then place the form in it's own basket.

This form was nothing more than a xeroxed paper requesting that I write and sign my name, and that I state I am who I claim to be under penalty of law! Curious, considering that could've been easily verified with a state-issued identification! Or hell, even my county-issued CCW card has a pic on it!

I signed the form and left completely unchecked and unchallenged, as I would have at least cursorily been on election day.

So, ladies and gents, what do you think?

No matter what you think of Glenn Beck, please, please watch these two videos. They give a father's account of the aftermath of his son's death in Benghazi:






I don't know what to say. This administration is absolutely criminal; they are callous murderers. 

God help us if Obama is reelected.

War On Women, Anyone?

This just in: Democrats think that women are stupid, easy whores... And they're releasing ads pandering to us as such.


That's right. Lose your voting virginity to Barry Barack Hussein Soetoro Obama. We promise Mooochelle won't mind. Just this once.

Now, remember to vote with your lady parts in November...



...No, not those lady parts. The lady part the Dems don't think we have. The one between our ears.

Finally, she must've really got it hard from Barry, because she's spouting the same lines of bullshit that he is! Every single thing she said in this video was factually inaccurate; in other words, a lie!

The Third Debate

So I have to rush off to work. Round two of four today, so I don't have a whole lot of time to post on the debate last night, except to say that I think Obama took a page out of the Joe Biden "How To Be A Complete Liar And Look Like A Total Ass" handbook, and that I wish that Romney, while good, would've been a helluva lot more assertive.

Of course, ABC started shrieking immediately about Obama winning before the families were even off the debate stage. I went to bed at that point.

For me, here is the moment Obama lost his shorts and the whole night:



                   
                   
                   
             

What a complete jackass.

Finally, Obama... Propaganda much?

Mitt VS Obama

I know most of you don't care for the ERBs, but in light of the final debate tomorrow I just couldn't help but post this one:



It's good for a few chuckles.

Mitt FTW tomorrow!

Who Won the "First Lady Debate"?

By now I'm sure quite a few of you have seen the Jimmy Kimmel bit where idiots are asked to expound  on who won the second presidential debate... before it happened.

If you haven't seen it, here you go. Make sure you're sitting down.

Kimmel decided to up the ante after that amazing display; he asked Cali schmucks who won the "First Lady debate":



Ladies and gentlemen, be afraid. Be very, very afraid.

Mitt Wins

And we can thank the bald faced lying of the pResident and his lapdog Crowley for it.

Obama whining to the stuttering Crowley for help and the absolute wide-eyed "did you seriously just say that to me" daddy look Romney gave him when Obama was flat busted lying about Benghazi... It's the same look I've seen my husband give our kids when they're caught in a ridiculously thin lie.

Romney. F. T. W.

Romney Rally, Lebanon, OH

Yesterday my husband, children and I attended the Romney rally at Lebanon, OH. It wasn't overly long, but it was fun and energizing.

I took a few pics, and will include a few short thoughts. I won't go into it too deeply, as I had a particularly rough/sad day at work this morning.

When we first got there it was a couple of hours early. We still had to walk a bit, but not too much. After getting in the admission line, this was one of the first things we saw:



I'll let the idiocy of that pic speak for itself.

Next we got to the gate. I was a bit surprised to see these clowns in charge of security; it didn't leave me with an overwhelming confidence for the candidate's safety.



Don't worry, though. I didn't get molested... Just my cell phone and jacket got an intensive pat-down.

Real security was elsewhere, of course:



I do have to say that the city set up the venue very, very poorly. It was on the historic town's main street, and the media tent was so inexplicably close to the stage that only a couple hundred out of thousands could see the speakers in person.


We retreated a bit to get out of the crush between the storefronts and the media tent to right behind it where a jumbo monitor was set up. This was a whole lot less claustrophobic. Still, the atmosphere was electric!

The reason for the venue was that it just had to be in front of The Golden Lamb restaurant, which is Ohio's oldest Inn and Eatery. Our Congressman, Steve Chabot's grandparents purchased what was left of the Inn, which had become little more than a low-rent boarding house and restored it to its prior charm and splendor with a mere $2,000. Yes, Mr. Obama, they did build that. 


While we were there we saw a group of energetic people of all ages and ethnicities. The crowd was polite and clean; not a scrap of trash was to be found and everyone treated their fellow man with courtesy.

On the way out we saw vendors, of course. Some had the chintzy cheap stuff that was intended to make a quick buck. I kid you not, one young guy was hocking Mitt Romney oven mitts out of a plastic child's wagon. Some of the merchandise was very nice, though. A few framed pieces of art depicting this nation's history that were well done. I wouldn't have minded hanging one on my living room wall, but the budget just wouldn't allow. Most folks were selling shirts and the like.



There were also pamphleteers. (I picked up a few good ones.) There were also people with clever signs and a few cosplayers to boot:




A wonderful afternoon, overall. Here is Romney's talk, if you're interested. It is a shame that the crowd noise can't always be heard; it was very interactive!

How Obama Wins This November:

Check these two videos out. I speak with a man from church; he states that the only way Obama wins this November is through fraud and blind voting.

Between these, and my previous post about registering both High School and JR. HIGH SCHOOL kids as Democrats, it seems clear that the fraud by the left is going strong.




Wednesday, October 10, 2012

So... I think the author of this article missed the point just a bit. How do clearly underaged kids, regardless of their political orientation, get registered to vote? Just ask your friendly local Democrat party. They tried it. Don't worry folks, I'm sure there's NO fraud going on here:

School Lets Dems Register Students to Vote, But Not GOP


Read the whole thing here.

I guess your dead grandpa and his dog's vote aren't enough... The left is now going after the Clearasil voting bloc.

BHO's New Theme Song

After last night's debate, I think this is very appropriate. Hell, they should play it at the next debate when Barry Barack Hussein Soetoro Obama walks out:

Meanwhile, Chrissy isn't getting a tingle up his leg anymore:



Nope, Chrissy. It certainly wasn't an MSNBC debate, was it? Bwaahaaaaaaa!!!

Biden Lets The Truth Slip and Voting Uteri

This just in: Joe Biden is a double-agent working for the Romney campaign.

I mean, how else does one explain a 'gaffe' like this:

“Of course the middle class has been buried. They’re being buried by regulations, they’re being buried by taxes, they’re being buried by borrowing,” said Mr. Ryan. “They’re being buried by the Obama administration’s economic failures.”
-----

“This is deadly earnest. How they can justify, how they (Romney) can justify raising taxes on the middle class that has been buried the last four years? How in the Lord’s name can they justify raising their taxes? We’ve seen this movie before....“

And right before the first presidential debate. It must be Christmas!

Meanwhile, all you girls make sure your vagina gets out there and votes for Obama:




You know, because Dems respect you for your mind, opinion and don't at all see you as a walking uterus that votes for them because they told you to. It's the Republicans and conservatives that are devaluing women and waging a war on them, right.

Riiiiiight.

Kim Jong Style

I'm sure by now most of you have heard of the latest annoying foreign music fad given meme immortality: Gangam Style. If you haven't watched it, you don't know what you're missing. Other than about four minutes of your life, that is. 

Well, here's some Kim Jong style for 'y'all: 


You're welcome. Heh.

"On this day in 1976 the NASA Enterprise Shuttle received it's official dedication. Gene Roddenberry and most of The Original Series cast were on hand for this incredible event."




I find it offensive and saddening beyond measure that Obama has since gutted such a proud organization. No doubt Curiosity was so successfully executed in spite of him...

Godless Dems

Here is the video of the Dems reluctantly re-instating God and Israel back into their platform. Just watch:




The Chair could discern a majority in the 'voting.' It was clear the nays were louder!  He just went ahead and put God back in anyway, amongst booing, because it was politically expedient.

In other words, this would've bit 'em in the ass in a couple of months. It may yet!

I bring you some excellent satire from AWD: 


Begrudgingly, and with a shower of boos, the Dims at the DNC Convention reluctantly put God back into their platform today. Reportedly, the Big Man Upstairs has been watching all this and is not pleased! In a prepared statement released today, the Almighty said:
“Verily I say unto you! The Dims have once again turned their back on righteousness and embraced evil! With their original platform that omitted me and my chosen people, the Israelis, I can say that I did not get a thrill up my leg!
I don’t know what’s wrong with those Dims! They seem to have fallen for Allah. Allah this! Allah that! Oh, Allah all the time! And what has Allah ever done except encourage his followers to chop off people’s heads! I just don’t get it! I’ve been good to America! I’ve blessed America with tremendous wealth and power! But the Democrats are head over heels all over this guy Allah! We’ll see what happens when Allah has them buried in a pit dodging rocks!”
Democrats quickly changed their platform after it was revealed they no longer wanted anything to do with God. The socialists running the Democrat show had forgotten there are still a great deal of Dims who believe in the Almighty and haven’t fully embraced a godless society. But the leaders of the Democrat Party are working hard to make government the God of the people!
Heavenly Father continued:
“I see that President Obama has moved his acceptance speech to a Ramada Inn on Nations Ford Road in Charlotte from the Bank of America Stadium because of a 20% chance of rain. Good thing for him. I was going to drown those sumbitches with a storm not seen since Noah! For God will not be mocked and, while God doesn’t hate, I will exact my vengeance on the unpure! And there are none more impure than Democrats!”
“Things are going to get pretty bad for America with every step away from the Christian values that built their once-great country! Go ahead, Dims! Embrace Allah and Islam…see where it gets you! Think those unwashed savages will spare you from the knife? Guess again! You’ll end up on YouTube with your melon resting on your chest! And it will serve you right!”
The changing of the Democrat platform to use the word “God” was met with a chorus of boos from the liberal crowd in Charlotte. It was met with even more resistance from the mainstream propaganda media! For Dims, God = Government. And that is why America is screwed!
God the Father finished his statement saying:
“Verily I say unto Chris Matthews and his fellow libtarded sinners. Repent! Or you’ll soon find yourself in a lake of fire with Ted Kennedy! I have a whole section of Hell reserved for the Democrat Party!”



Meanwhile, a 'voter' at the DNC who came from Nueva York but hails from the territory of Puerto Rico wants to make her opinion of the political process in Los Estados Unidos known.

 She wants to kill Romney should she see him. That's perfectly reasonable, isn't it?



Don't worry. I'm sure the Secret Service will take a small break from the cathouse nearest the DNC to make sure this woman wasn't serious.

Riiiiiiight.

Addendum:

How about, "If you vote white, you've voted right." 

Nah, now THAT would be RACIST. Not this, however:
