The Goode Family - 5/27/09

The so-called “Progressive” religious cult was largely foisted upon us through pop culture. The majority of the world -- whether they know it or not -- developed their opinion of American Conservatives through pop culture (and the utterly dishonest bastards who call themselves “journalists”).

And, until pop culture starts -- in a big way -- to satirize and savage “Progressives” in a manner similar what has been done to Conservatives, we will be stuck with lunatics like the ones currently running our government.

Well, there may be light at the end of the tunnel.

Green Cultists Resume Genocidal Policies

I always assumed the murderous lying thugs who cleave to the totalitarian political religious cult euphemistically known to some as the “Progressive” ideology would soon resume their eco-imperialistic genocidal policies by reinstating their counter scientific ban on DDT. Sure enough, they have.

Ask anybody who grew up in the South during the 40’s, 50’s or 60’s about the joys -- as a child -- of running directly behind the DDT truck as it fogged the neighborhood to prevent the spread of encephalitis. Now, realize that this generation is healthier than any which preceded it and ask yourself just how insanely malevolent these neurotic eco-imperialists really are.

Quoting The Wall Street Journal opinion page:
“In 2006, after 25 years and 50 million preventable deaths, the World Health Organization reversed course and endorsed widespread use of the insecticide DDT to combat malaria. So much for that. Earlier this month, the U.N. agency quietly reverted to promoting less effective methods for attacking the disease. The result is a victory for politics over public health, and millions of the world's poor will suffer as a result.”

On offense, Cheney scores points

Quoting The Washington Times:
“Former Vice President Dick Cheney's sweeping indictment of administration policy changes on the handling of terrorism-suspect detainees has thrown President Obama on the defensive and scored points for the vice president and his party, according to pollsters and political analysts…

polls show a majority of Americans side with him on using aggressive interrogation methods on high value al Qaeda prisoners and are against moving them from the detention facility at U.S. Naval Base Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, to maximum-security facilities in the U.S…

Meanwhile, a key former adviser to Mr. Cheney, says he has no intention of folding his tent and going into retirement anytime soon, as long as he feels Mr. Obama's policies will endanger the country's security. A major objective for him will be to force the administration to release key intelligence memos he says will show that aggressive interrogation methods were effective in producing valuable information that kept Americans safe from terrorist plots…

‘Obama's clearly on the defensive here. He turned this into a values fight. This is not about moral relativism. Evil people want to kill innocents. Wanting to defend ourselves is not an abrogation of our values’ [said former Cheney adviser Mary Matalin]”

The Quagmire of Waging War With Lawyers

Imagine if FDR had attempted to defeat the Axis powers by affording every enemy combatant every right afforded American citizens and by prosecuting every enemy combatant in a Federal court of law. What would have happened if the Axis powers were fighting a war and the Allied powers were attempting to prosecute each and every individual enemy combatant as if he was merely a criminal? We would all now be speaking German!

But, although al Qaeda declared war against the United States in 1998, what I described above is EXACTLY what lunatics such as Rachel Maddow and others at MSNBC propose -- nay, demand!

Naturally, candidate Obama told these nuts precisely what they wanted to hear. Today, President Obama -- the one who NOW receives the “President’s Daily Brief” is obviously coming to understand exactly how insane, self-destructive and utterly unworkable this approach really is.

But, President Obama does not have the spine required to admit his foolishness and openly reverse this particular position. Oh, no! President Obama -- as he so often does -- is attempting to have it both ways. In doing so, President Obama is wading directly into the bottomless quagmire of waging war with lawyers on the front lines. In doing so, he is guaranteed to take heavy fire from ALL sides. As evidence, examine the beating the great Messiah took tonight from some of the nuttiest of the nutty on the far, FAR Left:

Well after Cheney had scheduled the date for the above speech, Obama decided to preempt it with a speech timed to conclude just before Cheney’s began. It appears as though the tail is wagging the dog yet again. It is yet another sure sign of one not fit to lead.

Reusable Grocery Bags May Cause Food Poisoning

Updated on 9/21/11:
The original National Post article has vanished.
Click here for a similar and more recent study.
Click here for more on the fraudulent assault on plastic bags.
Click here for some facts on plastic (published by The Boston Globe).

I have long suspected that canvas grocery bags were just food poisoning waiting to happen. Now we have scientific evidence to substantiate my suspicions.

Quoting Canada’s National Post:
“• The moist, dark, warm interior of a folded used reusable bag that has acquired a small amount of water and trace food contamination is an ideal incubator for bacteria.

• The strong presence of yeasts in some bags indicates the presence of water and microbial growth substrate (food).

• There is a potential for cross-contamination of food if the same reusable bags are used on successive trips.

• Check-out staff in stores may be transferring these microbes from reusable bag to reusable bag as the contaminants get on their hands.

• In cases of food poisoning, experts will have to test reusable bags in addition to food products as the possible sources of contamination.”

To be safe, one would have to wash the cloth bag(s) after each visit to the grocery store. Factor THAT into your environmental equation! And, how many will actually do that?

For those who do not harbor an irrational hatred for anything produced from petroleum, using and recycling plastic bags is by FAR the most environmentally friendly (and sensible) choice. But, don’t even attempt to tell that to one of the religious cult members carrying a reusable bag.

Bono - The Hypocrisy of Another Idiot Celebrity

“In 2005 Bono and his wife Ali Hewson set up Edun a clothing range that was going to prove there is a different way to end poverty. It was going to be a non-corporate and of course ‘sustainable’.

At he time MSNBC said it would be ‘clothing with a conscience’. Vogue magazine said Edun was going to ‘flip capitalism on its head’.

But now it seems that Bono has now discovered that big companies with their big carbon footprints are useful if you want to keep paying the wages and produce the goods and sell them. Last week the rock star announced he has sold out to LVMH, the world’s largest luxury goods company. Announcing the deal Bono all but admitted that his touchy feely version of capitalism and development just didn’t work…

Neither side felt it necessary to say how much Bono got for selling half the company to LVMH. Edun has, in the past, made much of the company’s transparency. However it seems that the transparency only extends to poking our noses into what the workers earn. Bono and his wife are exempt from such questions. But good luck to them. It is really not important to know how much money they have.

But it is important for them to stop keeping people in poverty in the name of sustainability. We used our resources – we burned coal and oil and chopped down our forests. We drove our cars and flew our planes. We have used capitalism to conquer disease and poverty and as a consequence our children are the best-educated and healthiest in history.

But it seems that now some of these children want to stop the poorest on the planet from having what we have. Bono loves sustainable development but only for other people. U2’s latest album was recorded in separate sessions in France, the UK, Morocco, the US and Dublin. The band is now going on a worldwide tour to promote it.

This is not ‘sustainable’ but it is necessary to keep people in work and to keep Bono’s bank balance healthy. And this is a good thing. U2 will provide employment for hundreds if not thousands through selling the album and going on tour. But it is being done the old fashioned way – through unsustainable but wealth creating capitalism.

If it is good enough for Bono and his band of Irish multi-millionaires then it should be good enough for the poorest on the planet.”

CBO Take on Climate Bill

Quoting The Washington Times:
“Congress' chief scorekeeper [the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office] says the global warming bill moving through Congress will either be scored as a major tax increase or a massive expansion of the federal government”
Click the image & read the rest:
Click the image & read the rest

Candidate Obama promised a tax cut for 95% of Americans. President Obama, if he has his way, will impose a MASSIVE tax increase on ALL Americans. Of course, it will be a stealth tax in the form of MUCH higher energy costs -- with all the looted booty going to brainless counterproductive Federal bureaucrats.

But, the real irony is that this idiotic bill will likely do so much economic harm that the Federal government will actually wind up getting LESS TAX REVENUE while Americans pay massively higher energy bills. Again, quoting the above link:
“The six-page CBO letter also listed repeated examples of situations in which, for purposes of the federal budget, it will assume that the cap-and-trade approaches will dampen businesses' income, meaning less revenue to the federal government.”
But, anybody stupid enough to have voted for Obama will be stupid enough to blame the energy providers rather than their beloved Messiah and his fellow Dims. And, with an ever complicit media leading the propaganda campaign, the most massive deception in the history of humanity will just keep on rolling on. IDIOTS!!!

Once Again, Dims Reward Bad Behavior

Obama and his Dim Congress have established a very clear pattern. Bad behavior will be rewarded and good behavior will be punished. After all, how else can they accomplish their Marxist goal of redistributing the wealth of the nation?

Under the Dim concept of “fairness”, those who pay their mortgage on time are required -- by force of law -- to make the mortgage payments of deadbeats.

Now, according to that charter member of “The Vast Rightwing Conspiracy” -- The New York Times, those who pay their credit card bills on time will be required to pay more in fees so that irresponsible deadbeat Dims can enjoy even greater “fairness”.

Quoting The New York Times:
“Congress is moving to limit the penalties on riskier borrowers, who have become a prime source of billions of dollars in fee revenue for the industry. And to make up for lost income, the card companies are going after those people with sterling credit.

Banks are expected to look at reviving annual fees, curtailing cash-back and other rewards programs and charging interest immediately on a purchase instead of allowing a grace period of weeks, according to bank officials and trade groups.”

When Dims tried -- with respect to housing -- to make life more “fair” for deadbeats, the GLOBAL consequences were rather severe. But, Socialists NEVER learn from their prior mistakes! Why? Because so-called “Progressives” are not merely blind ideologues, they are straight up CULT MEMBERS! They NEVER allow facts, evidence, prior experience or anything else to interfere with their blind faith in their religious creed.

When Will Bimbo Pelosi Resign?

Quoting The Hill:
“CIA Director Leon Panetta challenged House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s accusations that the agency lied to her, writing a memo to his agents saying she received nothing but the truth…

Pelosi (D-Calif.) infuriated Republicans this week when she said in a news conference that she was ‘misled’ by CIA officials during a briefing in 2002 about whether the U.S. was waterboarding alleged terrorist detainees…

For weeks, Pelosi had dodged questions about what she knew about waterboarding and when she knew it. Republicans have called her a hypocrite for criticizing techniques as "torture" when she tacitly agreed to the practices after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. At least one lawmaker — Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) — called on Pelosi Friday to step down as Speaker.”

Here's the Tithing to Al Gore's Cult

Quoting The Heritage Foundation:
“Representatives Henry Waxman (D-CA) and Ed Markey (D-MA) proposed yet another global warming bill following the tradition of McCain-Lieberman, Lieberman-Warner, Dingell-Boucher, and others. Though the proposed legislation would have little impact on world temperatures, it is a massive energy tax in disguise that promises job losses, income cuts, and a sharp left turn toward big government.

The result is government-set caps on energy use that damage the economy and hobble growth--the very growth that supports investment and innovation. Analysis of the economic impact of Waxman-Markey projects that by 2035 the bill will:

• Reduce aggregate gross domestic product (GDP) by $7.4 trillion,
• Destroy 844,000 jobs on average, with peak years seeing unemployment rise by over 1,900,000 jobs,
• Raise electricity rates 90 percent after adjusting for inflation,
• Raise inflation-adjusted gasoline prices by 74 percent,
• Raise residential natural gas prices by 55 percent,
• Raise an average family's annual energy bill by $1,500, and
• Increase inflation-adjusted federal debt by 29 percent, or $33,400 additional federal debt per person, again after adjusting for inflation.”

Bimbo Pelosi's Latest Display of Ignorance

(I inserted the link):
“At the end of President Barack Obama's statement Wednesday morning concerning a number of pending bills before Congress, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Cal.) interrupted him to offer some truly sycophantic praise about all the good he's doing for the nation:

‘You, under your leadership and working with this Congress, have done more to promote healthcare to move it along, prevention, technology, the biomedical research, children's health, veterans' health, than has been done in our country since Medicare was established in the '50s.’

Medicare was established in the '50s?

Um, no Madame Speaker, for Medicare and Medicaid were both established under the Social Security Act of 1965.”

$1,600 Per Year to Indulge Al Gore's Religious Cult

Quoting IBD Editorials:
“Douglas Elmendorf, director of the Congressional Budget Office, told members of the Senate Finance Committee Thursday that ‘Under a cap-and-trade program, consumers’ — not demonized corporations, we might add — ‘would ultimately bear most of the costs of emission reductions.’…

Cutting carbon emissions by 15% through this method would cost each American household an average of $1,600 a year, the CBO found. In a worst-case scenario, the cost is $2,200 per household.

Current House legislation would carry even heavier economic penalties than the CBO's model suggests.

Should it become law, it would require that CO2, the greenhouse gas some (but far from all) scientists believe is warming the planet, be cut 20% from 2005 levels by 2020. By 2050, the emissions would have to be 83% below 2005 levels. In light of this, $1,600 a year seems like a bargain. …

OK, now we're convinced. The country does need cap-and-trade — preferably a cap placed on the many poor ideas flowing out of Washington and a large-scale trade of the existing political leadership for a fresh class of elected officials who can think straight.”

Click the image & read the rest

Naturally, as the editorial notes, the Dims have no intention of allowing reason, facts or common sense to interfere with the creed of their totalitarian, political religious cult. They WILL impose this travesty on us all.

So, start now to gather up your $1,600 annual tithing to The Father (Al Gore), The Son (Obama) and the most unholy ghost (James -- mad man -- Hansen).

Of course, $1,600 per year is the lowball estimate. I can guarantee it will be far, far, FAR more than that -- and all this money will just be flushed down the crapper. There will be NO BENEFIT what-so-ever.

The following chart can be replicated by visiting this NOAA page and selecting the corresponding time frame and “April”.

Swine-Flu Hysteria

Quoting The Wall Street Journal Opinion Page:
“These are the people [the usual hysteria mongers] whose terrifying forecasts you last heard during the avian flu panic of 2005 (deaths to date: 257, according to the World Health Organization) and the SARS panic of 2002-2003 (774 deaths). By contrast, garden-variety flus typically kill upwards of 30,000 Americans a year.

You might also have a vague memory of the ‘mad cow’ panic that gripped the world in the 1990s. In his 1997 book ‘Deadly Feasts,’ Richard Rhodes warned that the human variant of mad cow, known as vCJD, might kill as many as 500,000 people a year in Britain alone. So far, total confirmed cases world-wide run to around 150…

Today's touchstone for panic is the 1918-20 Spanish Flu, mention of which seems to be included in nearly every news account of the swine flu outbreak… as science writer Wendy Orent has pointed out in the New Republic, ‘only the precise conditions of World War I's Western Front -- a true disease factory -- could have created a flu as virulent as the one responsible for the 1918 pandemic’ ”

All this hysteria reminds me of Rahm Emanuel’s most famous quote:
“You never want a serious crisis [real, imagined or government created] to go to waste. What I mean by that is it’s an opportunity to do things you couldn’t do before.”
Count on the Obama administration to use this hysteria for yet another utterly counter-productive Socialist power grab.
