Obama Administration = Jihad: economic, political, moral, religious, security…

This certainly made me twitch:

Fortunately my tea was still brewing in the kitchen.

I leave it to a prudent restrained spirits like our host to comment, but can’t this lose Romney the nomination? If not the nomination, the election (by a landslide)? Especially if Ubersmart Harvard Whiz Mitt digs his heels in the way he has with RomneyCare.

As for the ‘Global March to Jerusalem’ you have to go to the main site to comprehend the mindset of the marchers: http://gm2j.co/

Propaganda…beyond the pale.

Where does SPLC get their statistics? It wasn’t clear in the article exactly where they come from and how they’re compiled, so I guess they must have pulled them out of the same place most liberals do. What a crock of scaremongerers.

Very few people, of any skin hue, has my respect and admiration as does Thomas Sowell. Right up there with him, would be Walter Williams, another Austrian economist who doesn’t mince words or hold back his opinion in fear of being labeled “not black enough.” Williams grew up in an absolute ghetto instilling in him the desire to advance where others used it for a reason to want to be pampered.

Sowell’s book, Housing Boom and Bust is a clear, concise explaination of the housing bust in certain regional areas, whereas other areas (Texas, in particular) did not experience that bust. Being the academic that he is, you would think that Sowell’s books would be written in jargon that the blue collar segment would have problems understanding, but they’re not. They are easy, and understandable reads.

Sowell, Williams, Elder and Thomas should be role models taught to every student. Their books, on their lives, should be required reading in every high school class and for all races. “Overcoming Adversity” could be the class title. For these men surely did and would provide encouragement to a black student from the Detroit ghetto or a poor white kid from a destitute Appalachia or a Native American student stuck on a poverty stricken reservation.

That Sowell, et al, truely lives the words of Dr. King should be encouraging to all of us.

    You know what? That is a FANTASTIC idea. I think that I’m actually going to do that with the students I tutor (as I do it somewhat as a group anyway).

      The good over evil, success over adversity story is one that should never get old. Unfortunately, black children are taught that they are a suppressed race, with their history beginning with the Emancipation Proclaimation. Nothing is farther from the truth. Think Crispus Attucks, an American colonial hero. Black history in the U.S. is as old as the nation itself, not what is taught to kids now, that black history didn’t start until the 1860’s. Would it not be better to teach children, of all races, the importance of their ancestors to the total history of this nation?

      I find it appalling that the history of our nation has been so turned on its head so as to be policially correct. When you teach children to have pride in those that came before them, they take on that pride as part of themselves.

    Well said retire05. Sowell’s book “Intellectuals and Society” is also very good.

Scandal at Wa-Poo? Who would have thought it….

You’re probably going to see the “for-profit” colleges like this imploding very shortly when the federal spigot actually gets cut off.

You see it happening with Kaplan. I have it on VERY good authority that Goldman Sachs’ for profit institutions are in the process of imploding (Art Institutes, Argosy University Online, South University Online and Brown Mackie College). Argosy is supposedly in the process of acquiring a “online Law School” in California somewhere. They’re NEVER going to get ABA accredited, so the degree will be practically worthless.

Apparently the Liberal players aren’t all on the same page, as the SEIU is holding press conferences and education events telling people NOT to go to these institutions.

Gently prompting them to have a food-fight could be a whole lot of fun to watch.

I am pro legal immigration. I want more of that. I am against illegal immigration. But what I see going on is the Obama regime stepping up enforcement in a way as to create sympathetic stories of long time green card holders (priests, minors, veterans, etc.) being sent home because of renewals on green cards. Meanwhile undocumented Latin American casual labor remains on your local street corner.

Rick Perry of course saw this coming and got vilified for it in the debates.

    If the illegals were people with degrees in journalism and willing to work for $7 an hour and they all voted Republican, you would see a different attitude on the part of the compassionate progressives.

    retire05 in reply to EBL. | March 8, 2012 at 11:11 pm

    Rick Perry was the only one that seemed to understand the value of the Hispanic vote. No, not the Hispanic that most people (especially yankees) first think of, the illegal, but the Hispanic who we in Texas refer to as Tejanos, who can trace their history back to the U.S. before it was the U.S.

    These Hispanics are, for the most part, hard working, very religious, strong family values, anti-abortion and pro-life. These are the Hispanics that we GOPers in Texas have been recruiting and have produced people like Henry Bonilla, Ted Cruz, Francisco Canseco and Bill Flores, conservatives all.

    But as the numbers of Irish increased in the 19th century, Hispanic numbers are increasing in the 21st century and we must bring these otherwise conservative voters into the fold.

A Web site devoted to Twitter posts? Please.
But tben, Michelle Malkin…better look.
She’s done it again.
In thirty days she’ll have the whole lot of them running for cover like roaches when a shade goes up. Gonna be a ball. Thanks Michelle (and LI).
It’s bookmarked.

[…] TWITCHY?  Legal Insurrection is doing Twitchy, as am I. It is Michelle Malkin’s new site, which is a compendium and analysis of Tweets. […]

CA Congressional Office: ““The environment is much more important than jobs”.Congresswoman Karen Bass seems more interested in re-electing Obama and promoting “Critical Race Theory” that either job creation or environmental protection. Details, with video and graphic, at link.

Twitchy.com covers sports but still nothing here.

What will it take to get the good professor to come around?

    I have been following Jousting lately. It is HUGE in Poland. I would like to see it take off in USA. You do have some castles as backgrounds – though they are very bad. Poland has the best medieval castles.

    Aim for that pole right between the eyes. What a nice metallic thud as they hit the ground.

    But I am reading “WarEagles82” right am I not? You are not into pussie sports surely?

      WarEagle82 in reply to BannedbytheGuardian. | March 9, 2012 at 4:04 pm

      Jousting is a regular event at the places I hang out. And we don’t use helmets and armor and stuff. You just get that dull thud like a green melon bursting…

Twitchy? This news story from Right Scoop probably has the management of Sleep Train going twitchy:

I saw that article about how Republicans need to appeal more to latinos a few days ago at Hotair. It’s bothered me since then. As conservatives, our values are universal. It’s impossible and anathema to “bend” them to appeal to some demographic group. Something needs to be done about this illegal immigration, our status as sovereign nation is at stake when 3 of every 4 children born in Texas are born to illegal immigrants.

Gasoline prices.

Firstly the $US has been devalued steadily – & all imports are 5-10% costlier.

Domestic producers can & will sell overseas for better prices. It takes investment to ship gas & oil out -which might just be cheaper than internal infrastructure eg Natural gas pipelines /transport corridors .

A product will find the best market.

I am not seeing $2.50 gas – but yes more secure supply.

What I see here in Ca is a lot of Mexicans (I don’t know what their immigration status is) who are working hard and love their families. But they send their kids to schools where they are more or less taught that we are in occupied Mexico. I don’t think we can’t do anything about Mexicans leaning Democratic without our own long march.

edge speaks this when he talks about a “long march” http://www.americanthinker.com/2007/02/cultural_marxism.html

When I was still practicing tax law I had a conversation with a conservative colleague who happens to be Jewish about the SPLC. We’d both noticed that the clients who listed the SPLC among their donations tended to be elderly Jewish ladies. ur conclusion was that Morris Dees was the Max Bialystock of the civil rights movement.

•Obama’s ”economic armageddon” campaign theme, also known by the vernacular, ”blame Bush.”

you mean “blame snowball”.

I think it will be increasingly hard to get the Latino vote, not because of immigration policies, but simply because the Democrat party is the party of handouts. I have never understood why Latinos who came here legally, would support illegal immigration. Then it came to me that even if there was a magical solution to the immigration debate,the Democrats would still own the majority of Latino voters. The Dems have soooo many people dependent on them with welfare payments, WIC, daycare programs, school lunches,housing benefits,heating benefits, almost 3 years of unemployment benefit etc, and they are making sure the private sector doesn’t recover. It’s not just latinos that will go with the “I’m-your-Sugar daddy” party. We need to kill off the benefit programs before it is too late and the “takers” outweigh the “producers”. As Margaret Thatcher said”The trouble with socialism is that eventually you run out of other people’s money”.
