Good riddance, Bill Bolling.

We won’t miss you. Right out of the gate in his withdrawal announcement, he whines about the switch from a primary to a convention. Never mind that he was nominated for Lieutenant Governor twice at conventions. Never mind that he and McDonnell helped engineer the previous vote of the State Central Committee in favor of a primary specifically to give himself an advantage against Cuccinelli. Never mind that his political director, Marissa Pugmire, a Utahn Romney hack from the 2008 campaign who glommed onto Bolling after THAT ended in defeat, was openly dancing around at the SCC meeting after that vote was taken.

Then he plays the victim, talking about how the evvviilllll conservatives robbed him of “his turn” and Cuccinelli should have waited. Newsflash, Bill: EVERYONE KNOWS YOU AND MCDONNELL RECRUITED JOHN BROWNLEE  TO RUN FOR ATTORNEY GENERAL IN 2009 AGAINST KEN CUCCINELLI. You’re not fooling anyone. Ken has NO obligation to you at all. Stop whining.

Also, quit speaking as if the nomination was your personal sinecure. “…late last year Mr. Cuccinelli unexpectedly announced that he intended to challenge me for the Republican Party’s nomination for Governor.” As if you were the incumbent. This business with the establishment politicians lining backroom deals about who will run for what and/or wait their “turn” in exchange for support or whatever needs to end immediately. Ken Cuccinelli is everything you are NOT. Genuine. Popular with grassroots. Conservative. Unafraid to stand on principle.

Your weakness and pathetic petty jealousy were in plain view, when, less than 12 hours after your huffy little withdrawal statement, you did an interview with the Richmond Times-Dispatch earlier today and left the door open to a third party gubernatorial run, after demanding party unity behind YOU from conservatives:

His withdrawal notwithstanding, Bolling still believes he is the best person for the job, and appeared to leave the door open, albeit very slightly, to a possible gubernatorial bid as an independent candidate should a groundswell of support propel him back into contention.

“I think this does give me the opportunity to be more of an independent voice on a lot of the issues facing Virginia today,” Bolling said.

“I think there are Republicans who have concerns about Mr. Cuccinelli’s candidacy and Democrats who have concerns about Mr. McAuliffe’s candidacy, and there are probably a lot of independent voters who are looking and saying, ‘Is this the best that we can do?’ So we’ll just have to see how that campaign unfolds over the next few months.”

Do us all a favor, Bill. Get lost and stay there. You can start by resigning right now, since your party obviously can’t count on your loyalty with this kind of tantrum the first time things don’t go your way.

Because having a vagina is more important

Than legal acumen? Damn skippy, according to Ruth Bader Ginsburg (a/k/a the Cryptkeeper).

Ginsburg said that no one has “ever raised a question” when nine men were serving on the bench.

Ginsburg added that she felt “lonely” on the bench when she was the only woman on the Supreme Court after Sandra Day O’Connor retired.

“It was the wrong perception for people to see just a little woman and eight larger men,” Ginsburg told the crowd. “But now if you come to the court, we are all over the bench.”

It’s THE SUPREME COURT OF THE UNITED STATES! No one gives a fuck if you’re lonely! You’re there to interpret the Constitution, not to have a Tupperware party or discuss bra size! Your plumbing shouldn’t matter to anyone, but your knowledge of the Constitution should!

But I guess in this post-racial, post-sexual United States, your skills should be secondary. What you’re hiding in your panties and your ethnicity is apparently more important.

America! What the flying hell happened to you???

Ever wonder just what kind of people (and I use that term very loosely) go on a crusade to relieve you of your Second Amendment rights? Let me give you a clue. They’re not just statist scum. They’re not just fetid satchels of possum shit who want to disarm you while they enjoy security at your expense. They’re criminals. Disgusting shitbags. Dregs of society, who somehow got themselves elected by drooling, retarded sheep who just love their chains, and were getting paid by your tax dollars to violate your constitutional rights.

And I don’t mean they’re criminals just in a moral sense.

I mean, they’re real criminals, as reported by WT’s Emily Miller. New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who hired thugs to illegally purchase firearms in other states, has surrounded himself with the dregs of society. These dregs just happen to be other mayors. Gun-grabbing, authoritarian, statist mayors.  But that’s not all they are.  They’re scum. Liars, predators and thieves. Is it any wonder they want you disarmed?

  • Gary Becker of Racine, WI, who was sentenced to three years in jail for felony child enticement and attempted sexual assault of a child.
  • Detroit’s former mayor, Kwame Kilpatrick, assaulted a police officer and perjured himself.
  • Sheila Dixon, who hosted Mr. Bloomberg and his MAIG conference in her city of Baltimore, MD was convicted while in office of perjury and embezzling funds.
  • Larry Langford of Birmingham, Ala., got 15 years in the big house for a staggering 60 counts of bribery, fraud, money laundering and tax evasion.
  • The late Frank Melton from Jackson, MS who violated his own city’s gun possession ordinances.

Funny how the rate of criminal behavior among Bloomberg’s mayors is much higher than in the regular population  Maybe Nanny Bloomberg should spend a little less time with felons before he attempts to paint gun owners with that broad brush.

Well, this is embarrassing!

The Russians think we’re a bunch of stupid twits, who haven’t learned from history.

Putin in 2009 outlined his strategy for economic success. Alas, poor Obama did the opposite but nevertheless was re-elected. Bye, bye Miss American Pie. The Communists have won in America with Obama but failed miserably in Russia with Zyuganov who only received 17% of the vote. Vladimir Putin was re-elected as President keeping the NWO order out of Russia while America continues to repeat the Soviet mistake.

After Obama was elected in his first term as president the then Prime Minister of Russia, Vladimir Putin gave a speech at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland in January of 2009. Ignored by the West as usual, Putin gave insightful and helpful advice to help the world economy and saying the world should avoid the Soviet mistake.

Recently, Obama has been re-elected for a 2nd term by an illiterate society and he is ready to continue his lies of less taxes while he raises them. He gives speeches of peace and love in the world while he promotes wars as he did in Egypt, Libya and Syria. He plans his next war is with Iran as he fires or demotes his generals who get in the way.

The tinfoil hattery about the NWO aside, is Pravda wrong? When the Russians make fun of us for outcommunisting them, we seriously need to take a closer look at ourselves.

Romney, the GOP, and immigration

3 Comments

Those of you who know me know that I did not support Mitt Romney for President. This was largely because of the cheating that went on at the RNC in Tampa, which is all the more galling considering that Romney had the nomination well in hand; apparently his minions, like the odious Ben Ginsberg, felt the need to punish the grassroots so we have to kiss the ring of the establishment every time out in the future. Despite this, I voted straight GOP all the way down the ticket, and then returned to the Presidential ballot line, which I’d left blank for consideration. I TRIED to force myself to vote for Romney/Ryan… TRIED… but then I remembered how the establishment, “the adults in the room”, meaning K Street and the consulting and punditry class, were in the tank for Romney, Pawlenty, and Huntsman. We were told any other choice was tantamount to Zero’s re-election. We had nothing resembling a fair primary process; it was loaded in favor of the establishment candidates, particularly Romney. I then unhesitatingly filled in the circle next to Johnson/Gray and turned in my ballot. I’ve met Gary Johnson personally, a number of times, and he’s exactly the sort of guy we need more of in politics. I had no illusions he’d be elected (and have some disagreements with him on defense and immigration), but he was the best man for the job and the best candidate on the ballot.

That aside, I’ve found my opinion of Romney, the man, not to say the candidate or the campaign, improving since his defeat. Romney was right on the money with his comments about the “gifts” to minorities, young voters and other special interests and voter blocs that Obama gave out. As Ilana Mercer pointed out far more eloquently than I could hope to, the GOP establishment descended on Mitt immediately, talking of how he was wrong and insensitive, and that we must retreat on immigration, entitlements and a host of other issues and become more “diverse”. This is exactly wrong. We cannot compete with Democrat Claus. Even if we could, that would represent complete ideological surrender. People are mocking the photos of Romney pumping his own gas, but this was the guy we needed to see more of during the last two years.

The Republican party embracing “comprehensive” immigration reform will mean its defeat. The Roveian idea of Hispanics as natual conservatives is a pipedream, as Heather MacDonald, who did an extensive study for the Manhattan Institute on Hispanic voters, points out. To more directly rebut the establishment’s babble about immigration, here’s Mark Kirkorian.

We’re importing third world peasants who will vote for more government largesse and who will further Balkanize America. Build the fence wall, and enforce immigration laws, and encourage self-deportation, and end birthright citizenship. We simply can’t afford another course of action, either ideologically or fiscally. It’s just another example of why the “moderates”, the social conservative and the neocons all need to be driven from control of the Republican party.

A Deal Where No One Will Be Happy

Comments Off

In a blind sprint to avoid what many are calling a “fiscal cliff” I’m hearing rumbles that the douchebags in Washington are “weeks away from a deal.”

Both sides have struck cooperative tones since Obama’s re-election. Even so, he and House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, the GOP’s pivotal bargainer, have spent most of the past two years in an acrid political climate in which both sides have fought stubbornly to protect their constituencies.

Translation: the Democrats are gloating about a mandate, and the clueless, feckless Republicans are trying to prove themselves inclusive “team players,” who are willing to sacrifice everything they stand for.

So the sides will agree on a deal where “the rich” will be just a bit more out upon, even though they already pay four times as much in federal taxes as the middle class. And these rich won’t be the multi billionaires who get much of their earnings from investment income that is taxed at a lower rate. These will be the “small” millionaires – ones who have probably scraped their way to that bracket, worked long hours, gone to school, and sacrificed a lot. And these will be those nasty, rich business owners who have sacrificed their entire lives. And they will be those damn doctors, who worked like hell in college and medical school, who slept two hours every two days in order to become experts in their field, to be able to save the lives of those who claim they’re entitled to not just dictate by government force how much the doctors should charge for their work, but also take more of their earnings. But hey, they have more to loot than the average guy, so why not. It’s not like they’ll miss it, right?

But I digress. I’m sure there will be some spending cut compromises, where the politicians will diligently ensure that the pork still flows to their districts – pork that funds superfluous defense projects the Pentagon doesn’t even want, and pork that funds tattoo removal, incentivizes adoption of rabid possum and builds infrastructure no one uses.

Don’t worry. Useless crap will survive. HUD, HHS, EPA, DOE and other worthless, bloodsucking bureaucracies will still exist. Entitlements for which the recipients paid X and will receive 3X during the span of their entitled lives will continue to suck away half of the federal budget. You will still get your goodies at the expense of the rest of us.

The military will still get its Chevy Volts (let’s hope they don’t catch fire while charging) – after all, GM needs sales, and they aren’t getting any the good ole fashioned way – by making a quality, reasonably priced product that people actually want to buy.

And we’ll still be in debt, which will likely continue to exceed 100 percent of our GDP through at least 2020.

But gosh! The politicians will have worked together to reach a consensus! By all means, elect them again, America! After all, they will have worked together to slow this country’s descent into economic mire. They deserve your vote yet again. They will have cobbled together a deal with which no one is happy, but they will have done so together, so it’s OK.

By all means, America, focus on bullshit issues such as whether or not your politicians agree with your social views, even though they haven’t and shouldn’t have anything to do with the federal government. Continue to harp on gay marriage, and other social issues. Pretty soon you’ll have nothing with which to purchase food for your family, except food stamps, because the leeches in Washington will have stolen your earnings and destroyed your will to achieve. But hey, you stood by your principles and voted for Dumbshit McHatethehomos because he’s for “traditional” marriage.

And by all means, continue voting for compromisers who will work together with the tax-and-spenders to slow the rate of government growth. Notice I didn’t say “reduce the size of government,” because that’s not even on their radar.

And in the end you’ll wind up with a deal where no one is happy, but in true communist fashion, you will know that it’s better to have everyone equally miserable than risk one group being happier than another.

I cry every time

Last year, Rob got me the 25th anniversary concert of Les Miserables. I can’t tell you how many times I have popped it in and watched, and I can’t even describe the number of times I burst into tears from sheer joy, listening to this music! And yes, I subjected Teeny to it too, and she enjoyed it. Dammit!

We got back from lunch today, and the concert was on PBS. I sat there once again and watched in awe as these amazing voices and actors took me away from everything. I particularly enjoy the end, where four men who played the role of Jean Valjean, including the original Colm Wilkinson, sang “Bring Him Home” in a quartet! When Alfie Boe hits the high note, that’s when I lose it. My second favorite portion is when the original cast joins the current one in singing “One Day More.” The effect of this entire brilliant cast singing this grand, passionate, flagship song is absolutely stunning.

Enjoy.

I can’t wait until the movie comes out next month!
