Hodge Podge Monday 12 April 2010

Hello all.  Time for another around the news Hodge Podge of events that I haven’t had the time to comment on 🙂  Well, some of it is news, some of it is history, some of it is humor, or humorous to me.  You be the judge and I will see if I can buy the jury 🙂

Well gas prices are up and will continue to climb.  I would gestimate that 4 dollars a gallon will seem like a pretty good deal by July.  With the President and his staff of environuts cancelling all the previously approved drilling leases we will continue to be a country incapable of meeting our own energy needs.  In fact, we are going in the opposite direction.  The cancelling of leases will cost the oil industry 1 trillion dollars.  That is 1 trillion dollars that will go out of our country to purchase foreign oil.  But, I could be wrong, the President could perfect that divine unicorn and rainbow power he promised with hope and change.

Lunch only beer shuts down the Danish Carlsburg Brewery.  Apparently drinking all day is no longer company policy at Carlsburg.   Now you can only get hammered at lunch 🙂

The warehouse and production workers in Denmark are rebelling against the company’s new alcohol policy, which allows them to drink beer only during lunch hours in the canteen. Previously, they could help themselves to beer throughout the day, from coolers placed around the work sites. An undated photo of a worker at Carlsberg Breweries in Copenhagen. Many went on strike Thursday, April 08, 2010 in protest after the brewery tightened their drinking policy.

The only restriction was “that you could not be drunk at work. It was up to each and everyone to be responsible,” company spokesman Jens Bekke said.

Carlsberg had mulled a stricter drinking policy for years and finally decided to impose the new rules on April 1, prompting protests from the staff.

Bekke said around 800 workers went on strike Wednesday and around 250 walked off their jobs Thursday, resulting in interruptions to beer transports in and around Copenhagen.

Carlsberg’s truck drivers joined the strike in sympathy – even though they are exempt from the new rules, Bekke said. The truck drivers are permitted to bring three beers from the canteen because they often don’t have time to have lunch there.

Good grief, what’s next, are they going to cancel the weekly AA meetings too?  Maybe its time they call in Captain Buggernuts to mediate a new contract.

Indiana Right To Life says there is no such thing as a Pro Life Democrat.  They are now barring the endorsement of ‘any’ Democrat Candidate.

“Our leadership anguished over this decision,” notes IRTL-PAC chairman Mike Fichter. “Had Democrats like Brad Ellsworth held firm in opposing federal funding for abortion in the health care bill, we likely would have rewarded such action with a bipartisan endorsement policy. Ellsworth’s collapse under pressure from the White House and Speaker Pelosi, as well as the collapse of his colleagues Joe Donnelly and Baron Hill, leaves us with no alternative. Leadership matters, and the reality is that Democratic leaders are advancing an abortion agenda at an alarming rate that will only be checked by a Republican majority.”

Former President Reagan had a saying “trust, but verify”.   I believe Rep Ellsworth and the entire Democratic Party have been verified (actually, I believe many of them are verifiable, but that is another story) as the anti-life, baby killing, blood thirsty, lying, cheating, old people hating, dog abusing, pedophile loving, Socialist racist they portray themselves to be through their own actions.  But, that is just my meek opinion after reading the non-Health Care Bill.  Ask and I will tell you how I really feel 🙂

Well, who burned the Stars and Stripes at the anti-war rally and why don’t you report it MSM?  Where is the outrage?

WASHINGTON, April 9, 2010-Amid recent mainstream media concern over “angry” tea partiers, Roger Aronoff, a media analyst and documentary producer with Accuracy in Media, observed a leftist anti-war rally to see how it compared to the conservative tea parties. The “peace” demonstrators, including four-time presidential candidate Ralph Nader, angrily denounced Bush and Cheney as war criminals, criticized Obama, called the United States an empire, bashed Israel and proudly burned an American flag.

Aronoff had one question for the mainstream media: “Where’s the outrage?”

“Did you see any reporting about the hate-speech and flag burning? I guess MSNBC was too busy that day,” wrote Aronoff at Accuracy in Media’s blog.

He noted that The Washington Post covered the rally, but left out the more extreme elements and never mentioned that President Obama was a target of the protestors.

Leave it to the lame stream media to ignore any violence or anti-Americanism on the left.  After all, when you have sold  your soul to Socialists and the Chicago Mob you dare not speak ill of them.  Reporting the news, truth or fact, or informing the people who global warming is a hoax is all too time consuming.   Why work when you can please your Socialist Overlords by simply making up lies, printing them and passing yourself off as a real journalist. 

Michelle Malkin provides a link to the Crash Course: Your Illustrated Guide To Tea Party Saboteurs.  Apparently some deranged left winger named Jason Levin has decided he cannot handle this free speech thing that allows people to disagree with his Socialist attitude.  So he has decided to organize and infiltrate the Tea Party with only one purpose.  To make them look and sound like the MSM currently portrays them.  This is an attack on America that is every bit as deadly as a terrorist bomb.

“We will act on behalf of the Tea Party in ways which exaggerate their least appealing qualities (misspelled protest signs, wild claims in TV interviews, etc.) to further distance them from mainstream America and damage the public’s opinion of them. We will also use the inside information that we have gained in order to disrupt and derail their plans.”

Ms Malkin has been set up by these people in the past.  One of them discretely held up an Obama nazi sign while posing for a picture with her.  As I have said in the past, the left cannot defend their positions against the message, so they simply attack the messengers.  It is the Socialist Way.  There is absolutely nothing American about the way they operate.  We could retaliate with smear tactics towards them, but who would report it?  They own the MSM.

Dick Morris believes Obama’s nuclear plan may a have few small flaws in it.

If any nation wants to attack the United States with chemical, biological, or electromagnetic pulse weapons, it need not fear nuclear retaliation as long as it has no nuclear weapons and abides by the Non Proliferation Treaty, Obama has announced. So, as New Yorkers are coughing their lungs out from mustard gas or dying in the streets of biological weapons, they will know that their government will not use nuclear weapons to retaliate against their murderers.

 In effect, Obama has said if you are a signatory to the nonproliferation treaty and do not have nuclear weapons, we will not hit you with nuclear bombs even if you unleash poison gas or biological microbes in crowed American cities or cripple our economy by a massive electromagnetic pulse.

His incredible announcement amounts to a green light for anti-American nations to hit our cities with gas or poisons resting secure in the knowledge that we will not use our nuclear arsenal to reply.

This is the problem when you send a rookie on defense into The White House.  Our Nuclear weapons stockpile is a deterrent.  It is part of our defense posture.  It keeps us from being attacked only if other nations believe we will use it.  If our enemies perception of our nuclear weapon becomes dependent on the idea that they are old, outdated and unmaintained garbage that we will never use, our defensive posture (our ability to defend ourselves) disappears.  You cannot tell a boxer go ahead and punch with your left all you want, I will only retaliate if you use your right, and by the way I haven’t been working on my boxing skills in some time, I may not be able to even throw a punch.  You will end up getting your butt kicked by a strong lefty who has no respect for your boxing skills.  President Obama it is only a deterrent if they believe we will use it.  Our current policy on the use of nuclear weapons has kept us safe for over 50 years.  Why change it to something less safe just to make a point, please your friends and further inflate your ego.

Star Parker tells us why she is running for congress 🙂  This article is a good read.

But this year no Democrat representing low-income Americans should feel safe peddling the same plantation policies that already have produced our broken schools, broken families, and broken spirits. Now they’re bringing these bankrupt ideas to the whole country.

Even California Senator Barbara Boxer recently admitted that this year no seat is safe.

Will we resign ourselves to an America where freedom and prosperity are distant memories and where 40% out-of-wedlock births and abortion as birth control are our new social norms?

I won’t. It’s why I’m stepping into this race.

Please read the entire article and Ms Parker’s Bio (linked at the picture).  You will find yourself supporting a conservative candidate with a good grasp of the issues and a strong will to save our nation from the Socialists now holding public office.  Good luck Ms Parker 🙂

Dick Morris and Eileen McGann have an article Since Passage Obamcare Loses 7 Points.  The article notes that approval of Obamcare is down to 34% support from the original 41% percent that supported the bill at the time of its’ passage.  I guess those that called up to get free Obamacare and were disappointed now realize they have been had.

Obamacare is a gift to the Republican Party that keeps on giving. The supposed benefits of the legislation start kicking in at the beginning of 2014 – far to distant to be of much political use today. But the defects start showing up right away. Insurance premiums are rising in the aftermath of the legislation’s passage. Doctors are retiring or closing their Medicare practices. Companies are taking write downs in their expected profits due to the higher health care costs imposed by the legislation. Soon, Medicare patients will begin to meet the word “no” when they seek care.

The destruction has begun.  The Democrat trick to reduce the cost estimate by collecting 10 years of payments for 6 years of service is ‘coming home to roost’.  People will come to realize that ‘slick willy’ politics are no substitute for real legislation that solves problems in lieu of creating them.  It is almost enough to make me vote Libertarian 🙂

And there you have it Friends and Neighbors, another Hodge Podge Monday.   Of course, I will close this up with a few humorous videos to lighten your day 🙂  And what could be more fun than personal injuries?

Okay, the video is old, but a perfect example of why foreigners need that government-run health care 🙂   This next video answers the question ‘is my child safe at the playground’?

Apparently not.  At least not with adults around.  I mean just look at what happens when adults play on their own.

And they call that recreation.  ‘Hey Bill, how was the weekend?  Hey Tom, weekend was great, took a turn on the old pogo stick, lost a testicle, cracked a rib or two, but hey, that’s what weekends are for, I’ve got to have my recreation’.

I will end this post with another one of the Asian candid camera shots.  Remember folks, don’t try this in the states, they have laws against hurt feelings.

Okay, there are still some things you can get away with in Western Culture.  Thanks for reading and have a great day:-)
