Spoof of the royal wedding

Quoting The U.K. Telegraph:
“It is a worldwide internet hit which mercilessly lampoons the royal wedding, but it has neverthess won an unlikely fan in Prince Harry.

Mandrake hears that Prince William’s mischievous younger brother has been using his Facebook page to share with his pals a three-minute video which features lookalikes of the bride, groom and other members of the Royal family — not to mention himself — breaking into dance as they weave their way up the aisle in a church masquerading as Westminster Abbey.”
Here’s the spoof video:

Click here for the obvious inspiration.
I still love that clip!

The royal wedding really was inspirational. For a moment, I indulged the fantasy that all of human civilization is not actually headed for an inevitable fiscal collapse driven by entitlement fantasies. It was nice to see the polite side of British society (both the royals and their admirers). But, how much longer before we see violent and destructive entitlement punks once again tearing London apart? Not long. I’m sure of that.

On the surface, it appears as though William and Kate are decent and honorable people who are truly devoted to one another. There is -- at least for now -- every reason to believe that surface impression runs deep. That inspires hope for the future -- even if that hope is fleeting and soon to be shattered by economic reality.

It was nice to escape, even if just for one morning. Thank you, William. Thank you, Kate. All the best to both of you.

Lastly, thank you Harry (and T-Mobile) for spreading some good cheer.

Peter Gleick politicizes tornadic tragedies

It was predictable that notorious climate alarmist Peter Gleick would politicize the current tornadic tragedies.

Peter has three major problems:

1) NOAA’s Greg Carbin has flatly rejected any anthropogenic influence -- correctly noting that:

A) Warming (either man made or natural) has offsetting influences on tornadic activity.

B) There is no scientific evidence to link warming with increased tornadic activity or increased tornadic intensity.

Note: Observational evidence from NOAA documents a decades long decline in “strong to violent” tornadoes.

2) Even the infamous IPCC says:
“Observational evidence for changes in small-scale severe weather phenomena (such as [smaller, less damaging] tornadoes, hail and thunderstorms) is mostly local and too scattered to draw general conclusions; increases in many areas arise because of increased public awareness and improved efforts to collect reports of these phenomena.”
3) The most comparable tornadic outbreak occurred in 1974, just one year before the climate charlatans famously warned us that we would all freeze to death unless big government came to our rescue. Gee, that’s “inconvenient”!

But, hey! Why let a little thing like real science hinder Peter’s efforts to scare the public into kowtowing to his tyrannical political vision?

Memo to Peter:
When even David Appell calls you out, you know you’ve REALLY jumped the shark. After all, Appell is infamous for defending (to this day) the obvious fraud perpetrated by Michael Mann.

When deciding which state has the most favorable tax codes, each individual has to look at their own personal circumstances. Some states are friendlier to those who work for a living. Other states are friendlier to those who are retired. But, those are generalities. Income level, consumption habits and housing value are just the top three other variables which one must take into account. Local tax rates are another very significant consideration.

Dims promote their Medicare mythology

The entire “Progressive” ideology is PURE mythology.
There is NOTHING factual about it.

Here, Dims promote their Medicare mythology.
It’s just a flat out lie from start to finish:

1) Think Medicare serves the poor?
Medicare robs the poor & gives to the rich.

2) leans hard to the Left.
But, even they admit this ad is a bald faced lie.

3) Paul Ryan’s plan is the best chance we have to save the nation.

The truth is that if we instantly and totally eliminated every entitlement program, every American would be far better off. The economy would take off like a rocket. The stock market would soar. And, those who truly need assistance would INSTANTLY be FAR better served by the private sector generosity of the most generous people on earth.

But, decades of bald faced lies such as this one have indoctrinated far too many Americans into believing the welfare state is actually a good thing. Pity, that.

Docs to pay for Wisconsin fraud

Quoting Media Trackers
(I inserted the second link):
“According to the Wisconsin State Journal, up to 22 University of Wisconsin doctors face penalties for taking part in providing fake sick notes to government employees and teachers during February protests against Governor Walker’s Budget Repair Bill. Knowing that employees would not be docked pay if they could provide a credible sick note with a doctor’s signature, a handful of University of Wisconsin doctors attended the massive protests on February 19, to write excuses for any and all who asked.”

EPA Tyrants Block Drilling Over CO2!

Quoting Fox News
(emphasis mine):
“Shell Oil Company has announced it must scrap efforts to drill for oil this summer in the Arctic Ocean off the northern coast of Alaska. The decision comes following a ruling by the EPA’s Environmental Appeals Board to withhold critical air permits…

Shell has spent five years and nearly $4 billion dollars on plans to explore for oil in the Beaufort and Chukchi Seas. The leases alone cost $2.2 billion…

The EPA’s appeals board ruled that Shell had not taken into consideration emissions from an ice-breaking vessel when calculating overall greenhouse gas emissions from the project…

The EPA did not return repeated calls and e-mails. The Environmental Appeals Board has four members: Edward Reich, Charles Sheehan, Kathie Stein and Anna Wolgast. All are registered Democrats and Kathie Stein was an activist attorney for the Environmental Defense Fund.”

Progressives shocked that Ayn Rand resonates

Quoting Paul Bond
at the Chicago Sun-Times:
“The power of Ayn Rand devotees has impressed some Hollywood distribution executives, who took note of the hefty $5,640 per-theater average scored by ‘Atlas Shrugged: Part 1’ during its opening weekend…

business has been brisk enough for producers Harmon Kaslow and John Aglialoro to expand from 299 theaters to 425 this weekend and to 1,000 by the end of the month. They don’t have enough film prints to fill all the orders.”

If theater management sacrifices their self-interest on the altar of their “Progressive” ideology, the movie will not show. Only time will tell.

A Euro Awakening in Finland?

Euro-Socialism -- as was inevitable -- is collapsing under the weight of various Socialist entitlement fantasies. The predictable Socialist response is to take from the wealthier Euro nations and give to the “needier” Euro nations. It is wealth redistribution (sound familiar?) on a continental level.

Well, not everybody in Finland is entirely happy with the idea of forcibly taking from Finland and giving to Greece, Ireland and now Portugal. Domestically, they are beginning to question the wisdom of giving “free” housing to immigrants. Huh! Imagine that! Shocking, eh?

Well, to The New York Times, it is shocking and they are none too happy with this Euro-Awakening. In the NYT fantasy world, the Finns are not questioning the wisdom of the Euro-Socialist welfare state, they’re just a bunch of racist right wing extremists (sound familiar?)

Move Over, Al Gore!

Sane people are jumping off the CAGW ship of fools like rats off of a sinking ship. Fear not, hysteria mongers! Your cult has at least one new devotee -- Charles Manson!

These days, even the gullible young hate Al Gore and his hideous hypocrisy. Clearly the CAGW cult needs a new leader. Manson is a proven leader, with brainwashing talents that almost rival those of Al Gore. So, who better to attack (pardon the sick pun) the leadership crisis at the CAGW cult?

As a lifer in a California prison, Manson even has the ideal carbon footprint -- one which the CAGW cult members can (for now) only dream of imposing upon the rest of us. (The tyrants at the EPA are working furiously to make that dream a reality.)

Once a cult leader, always a cult leader!

Ignorant Idiots Demagoguing Big Oil

On the subject of gasoline prices, the ignorant idiots at CNN are pandering to their ignorant idiot allies in Washington D.C.

Only in the very last sentence does CNN mention that even Eric Holder admits:
“It is also [also???] clear that there are lawful reasons for increases in gas prices, given supply and demand”
Click here and examine the dirt simple supply and demand issues which primarily, overwhelmingly and OBVIOUSLY have driven up the price of gasoline.

As I documented in the previous post, ANWR alone could have prevented the global price spikes of 2008 (and 2011).

The Fed printing an unprecedented amount of money (thereby driving down the value of the dollar) plays a role in this. But, a far more minor role.

Price gouging is an absolute red herring. Dims always dishonestly blame this on price gouging and NEVER FIND even the slightest bit of evidence to substantiate their LIES! But, the stupid, ignorant morons who vote for them lap this crap up.

Pull out your bullshit meters! Here we go again!

Kate Walsh - Entertainers should shut up & entertain

Most entertainers (for their own sake) should shut up and entertain. Kate Walsh (displaying both ignorance & arrogance on the subject of oil) is a classic example.

About the only thing she got right is that oil is a global market and USA oil independence is -- therefore -- a fantasy. We could achieve oil independence, but only after developing our vast resources AND only after (tyrannically) forcing domestic energy producers to only sell their energy domestically.

Beyond that, she regurgitated the same tired old Leftist lies, distortions and absurdities:

1) The lie that the USA has only 2% of global oil.

2) The absurdity that we should not drill now because it will not reduce gasoline prices tomorrow. Jay Leno addressed that stupidity as well as anybody.

3) The lie that domestic drilling will never have a significant impact on gasoline prices. Yes, I know the EIA published a report concluding that ANWR would do little to reduce the price of gasoline. That report was published by people who clearly have no understanding of economics, not even the most basic principles of supply and demand.

The fact is that:

1) ANWR alone could have prevented the global price spikes of 2008 (and 2011).

2) The USA easily has 6 to 7 times the proven reserves of Saudi Arabia.

Hey! Kate! You’re not as smart and not as well informed as you think you are! You are ONLY well indoctrinated (and -- demonstrably -- quite the fool).

Unless and until you become better educated and less likely to make an absolute fool of yourself, SHUT UP AND ENTERTAIN!

By exploiting your celebrity status to spread lies, ignorance and propaganda, you are doing tremendous harm to ALL of human civilization!

$11 Billion Gift to the UAW

Quoting The Wall Street Journal:
“The U.S. government plans to sell a significant share of its remaining stake in General Motors Co. this summer…

At Monday's price, and taking into account shares sold during the IPO, taxpayers would lose more than $11 billion on the rescue if the government dumped the rest of its stake now.

A summer sale makes it more likely Treasury could sell all of its stake in GM by year's end, avoiding a potentially controversial sale in the 2012 presidential election year.”

1) This was a UAW bailout. The insane entitlement mentality of the UAW destroyed GM. Obama rescued them -- simple as that. At the current stock price, this would amount to a purely political; utterly corrupt $11 billion GIFT to the UAW union thugs -- a “gift” funded with money stolen from tax payers against their will.

2) As you can see from the above quote, Obama puts his reelection ahead of the interests of the tax payers AND the country -- anybody surprised?

Mr. Gore - Are you proud of your new hire?

When MSNBC terminated Keith Olbermann, many hoped he would fade into a well-earned obscurity. But, it seems Al Gore thought Olbermann would be a perfect match for Gore’s snake oil empire -- hard to argue with that conclusion.

Lacking any substance with which to attract any attention, Olbermann quickly resumed his same old shtick. And, the Lame Stream Media -- as is their nature -- happily rewarded his slithering slime with the attention he so desperately craves.

Yep, Olbermann defended federal funding of Planned Parenthood by publicly suggesting that the parents of commentator S.E. Cupp should have used the services of Planned Parenthood to prevent the birth of S.E. Cupp. That is, of course, a typical example of Olbermann’s “debating” “skills”. Surely, nobody was surprised -- least of all Keith’s new employer. Gore had to have known this was the sewer he was climbing into. Then again, Gore is no stranger to swimming in sewers.

After a prolonged silence, S.E. finally addressed the latest sewer sludge to ooze from that atrocious hole in Olbermann’s face:

Click here for the mother’s response
(as well as Olbermann’s disgusting rebuttal).

To the point of taxpayer funding for Planned Parenthood (as debated in the video clip found here)…

1) Leftists always deliberately conflate constitutionally authorized spending (such as National Defense) with utterly unconstitutional (and entirely tyrannical) funding of their social and political agendas -- via Planned Parenthood, NPR, PBS, and so much more. It is profoundly (and typically) dishonest to conflate one with the other -- ditto funding of fire departments and all other legitimate, non-partisan government activities.

Those on the Left (and/or others) may disagree with funding this or that war. Personally, I HATE funding this moronic intervention in Libya. We can even debate whether Obama had constitutional authority to enter into that folly without Congressional approval. But, nobody can even begin to argue that such activities (when authorized by Congress) are not authorized by the United States Constitution. In contrast, there is NOTHING in the Constitution which even comes remotely close to authorizing funding for Planned Parenthood, NPR, PBS or a whole slew of other Leftist outlets.

2) NO level of government should EVER fund ANYTHING which even remotely smells like “charity”. That is NOT a proper role for ANY level of government. Charity should ONLY be funded and delivered by the private sector. NOBODY (other than the Mafia) is well served by government “charity”. In point of fact, ALL are HARMED by such “charity” -- most of all the purported “beneficiaries”.

S&P lowers outlook on US debt rating

Quoting Standard & Poor’s:
“Standard & Poor's… said that it revised its outlook on the long-term rating of the U.S. sovereign [debt] to negative from stable…

In 2003-2008, the U.S.'s general (total) government deficit fluctuated between 2% and 5% of GDP. Already noticeably larger than that of most 'AAA' rated sovereigns, it ballooned to more than 11% in 2009 and has yet to recover…

We believe there is a significant risk that Congressional negotiations could result in no agreement on a medium-term fiscal strategy until after the fall 2012 Congressional and Presidential elections…

Even in our optimistic scenario, we believe the U.S.'s fiscal profile would be less robust than those of other 'AAA' rated sovereigns by 2013.”

At worst, nobody will buy that debt and we’ll be cut off like a junkie without a dealer (and suffer even worse withdrawals).

We can pay the Piper now or pay him a whole lot more later. Either way, the Piper WILL get paid!

EPA Tyrants Defy Even Obama

Quoting Executive Order 13563 issued by Obama on 1/18/11 (emphasis mine):
“Our regulatory system must protect public health, welfare, safety, and our environment while promoting economic growth, innovation, competitiveness, and job creation.”
Quoting The Daily Caller (emphasis mine):
“EPA Assistant Administrator Mathy Stanislaus testified Thursday [4/14/11] before an Environment and Energy subcommittee hearing that his agency does not take jobs into account when it issues new regulations.”
Remember, Obama promised to bankrupt the coal industry. So, is it possible that Obama told the EPA that his Executive Order was just for show and that the EPA should continue with their job killing tyranny?

This week, we also saw that -- when it comes to his precious Czars -- Obama is perfectly willing to sign an agreement and then back out on it.

It should be obvious to all that nobody can believe anything Obama says, does or signs -- EVER! Unfortunately, the Obama Zombies -- living in the fantasy world fabricated by the Lame Stream Media -- will never understand that.

Obama's Speech - Waste, Fraud and Abuse

Quoting James Taranto
at The Wall Street Journal
(emphasis mine):
“Even by the standards of the World's Greatest Orator, yesterday's was a dreadful speech

Obama said he was going to start ‘by being honest about what's causing our deficit.’ It's hard to cut spending: ‘You see, most Americans tend to dislike government spending in the abstract, but like the stuff that it buys.’ It's hard to raise taxes: ‘My finely honed political instincts tell me that almost nobody believes they should be paying higher taxes.’ And politicians are selling voters a bill of goods when they ‘feed the impression that solving the problem is just a matter of eliminating waste and abuse.’

What's needed, he claimed, is ‘a serious plan’ that will ‘require tough choices.’ He then outlined a four-step ‘approach’--it wasn't detailed enough to achieve planhood--that showed his promise of honesty to be an utter fraud.

Waste, fraud and abuse will ALWAYS be

America was not great before 1965?

Quoting Barack Hussein Obama on 4/13/11
(attempting to rationalize the Dim spending spree):
“‘There but for the grace of God go I,’ we say to ourselves, and so we contribute to programs like Medicare and Social Security, which guarantee us health care and a measure of basic income after a lifetime of hard work; unemployment insurance, which protects us against unexpected job loss; and Medicaid, which provides care for millions of seniors in nursing homes, poor children, and those with disabilities,” Obama said. “We are a better country because of these commitments. I’ll go further – we would not be a great country without those commitments.
Medicare & Medicaid were passed into law in 1965.
So, Obama is saying America was not great prior to 1965?
Was this a one sentence departure from his beloved teleprompter?

Here is the fool spouting his usual nonsense:

I have very fond memories of the days before the phenomenal waste, fraud, corruption and abuse that came with Medicare and Medicaid -- both signed into law in 1965. There is absolutely, positively, no question that the American people were FAR better off without this massive government intervention.

Today, scamming Medicare is so easy and so safe that the Italian Mafia have virtually abandoned all their other criminal activities to focus solely on Medicare fraud.

But, according to Barack Hussein Obama, America was not a great country prior to the colossal disasters perpetrated upon the American people by the Dims in 1965.

Largest Spending Cut EVER?

Quoting Chris Edwards

(from 4/1/2011):
“The Washington Post said today that a plan to ‘cut $33 billion from the federal budget’ would be ‘the largest one-time reduction in U.S. history.’


Indeed, even with $33 billion in cuts, total federal spending will still rise by more than $200 billion this year due to rising ‘entitlement’ costs.”

Panorama also alleged that van der Sloot has been a heavy drug user while in jail. ‘He has been put into solitary confinement several times but comes out even more angry,’ a source told the magazine.”

I hope the rotten degenerate spends the rest of his miserable life in that Peruvian jail. I wonder -- are Peruvian inmates even less tolerant than American inmates of men alleged to have murdered women?

Paul Ryan - The Path to Prosperity

Paul Ryan’s solution to our debt crisis:

Click here to learn more.
I would prefer to completely eliminate all entitlements -- now!
Private charities would do a FAR better job.
The economy would take off like a rocket.
The stock market would soar.
We would all be FAR better off.
But, the voters do not understand that.
It is unlikely they ever will.
By contrast, Ryan’s plan just might sell.
That would be FAR better than continuing our death spiral.
Ergo, Paul Ryan for President!

This is what Liberal Fascism looks like

But, what does Liberal Fascism look like?
It’s Fascism wrapped in a Happy Face.

The CAGW fraud is nothing but an excuse for Socialists worldwide to take control over the “Commanding Heights” of the global economy. The energy sector of the global economy is the very apex of those “Commanding Heights”. Big business in bed with big government is classic Fascism.

Please! Tell me again who thinks it is a good idea to utterly waste $45 TRILLION in order to pretend we can micromanage climate change. Kyoto has already PROVEN that we can waste all the money we want and we will not even come CLOSE to changing the global temperature in any way which could even be measured.

Furthermore, history tells us that the estimate of $45 TRILLION would balloon into at LEAST a full order of magnitude above that figure.

Wisconsin Supreme Court May Not Veer Left

The latest development in the Wisconsin Supreme Court election battle suggests that court may not veer Left after all.

This means the utterly unsustainable public sector union excesses in Wisconsin might actually be reined in.

With the election result tables turned on them, Dims are now finding their own accusations are coming back to haunt them. Come now; let’s not tease the circus animals! LOL!

Obama Thugs Plan to Hold Soldiers Hostage

Quoting CNS News:
“Soldiers will continue to earn money but not be paid during a government shutdown, a senior Obama administration official said…

Meanwhile, if the government shuts down Medicare payments will continue, the Obama administration official affirmed, saying a government shutdown would have to go for an unusual long time for Medicare payments to stop.”

The Failed Couric Experiment

Quoting Brent Bozell
at Newsbusters:
“The news leaked out Monday that Katie Couric is stepping down from her failed experiment as the anchor of the ‘CBS Evening News.’…

Couric didn’t fail at this job or lack authority because she was the first female nightly news anchor. She lacked authority because she was such a blatant feminist and liberal activist…

No one imagines that Katie Couric’s replacement of CBS means less liberalism. The leading candidate to replace her is Scott Pelley, who’s been tougher on people he’s compared to Holocaust deniers -- global warming skeptics -- than actual Holocaust deniers, like Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, whom he asserted was ‘genuinely religious, genuinely humble’ and ‘said to be absolutely incorruptible as well.’ The meltdown at CBS [and NPR, and the rest of the Lame Stream Media] will continue.”

Former NPR CEO - Elites are 'Terrified'

When a particularly smelly pile of NPR pooh hit the fan, NPR CEO Vivian Schiller finally got fired.

Memo to poor little Vivian and all her ilk in the Lame Stream Media:

Those so-called “journalists” who present one face in public and another (extremely bigoted) face in private should always be fearful of being exposed for the duplicitous, vacuous, whoring hypocrites that they are. After all, real journalism is all about looking behind the mask and ferreting out the truth.

Has Ryan’s budget boxed in Obama?

Quoting The Washington Examiner:
“the House GOP’s official budget, authored by [Congressman Paul] Ryan, contains major reforms to Medicare and Medicaid…

The problem Obama faces is that he himself has said that current entitlement costs are unsustainable…

If Obama responds to Ryan with his own deficit reduction plan that confronts entitlements, his liberal base will go apoplectic. Yet if he doesn’t offer anything, then all his talk about being the kind of president who would set politics aside to deal with the nation’s challenges looks even more empty than it already does.”

Largest March Snow Cover Since 1987

Quoting Steven Goddard at Real Science
(I inserted the second link):
“Extensive northern hemisphere snow cover during the 1970s was caused by record cold and global cooling, but now it is caused by record heat and global warming. Like when your broiler starts behaving like the deep freeze.

So far this year, snow cover has been fifth highest on record. Snow cover has been rising steadily for 20 years, in direct proportion to the level of dishonesty from the global warming funded alarmist community.”

57% Okay With Government Shutdown

Quoting Rasmussen Reports:
“A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 57% of Likely U.S. Voters think making deeper spending cuts in the federal budget for 2011 is more important than avoiding a partial government shutdown. Thirty-one percent (31%) disagree and say avoiding a shutdown is more important.”

Vindicating Guantanamo - Holder Undone by Fellow Dems

Quoting The Wall Street Journal:
“The Obama Administration did a full spinning reversal with a triple twist yesterday on its plans to prosecute terrorists, announcing that it will now try September 11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed in a military tribunal at Guantanamo Bay after all. We were going to applaud the Administration for sticking the national security dismount, but then we saw Attorney General Eric Holder grouse through his press conference and say that he only took this step because [the 2010 Democrat controlled] Congress made him do it [with Chuck Schumer, New York Dem, leading the charge]…

KSM and his fellow murderers will now be tried by military commissions of the kind that President George W. Bush proposed in the earliest days of the conflict formerly known as the war on terror. Someone should write the headline: Holder vindicates Ashcroft, as in Mr. Bush's first AG.”

Libya - The WORST possible place to intervene?

Just when I think Obama could not possibly make any mistakes any bigger than those he has already made, the damn fool proves me wrong yet again.

Of all the possible places to intervene with United States military force, could Obama have POSSIBLY chosen ANY location any WORSE than Libya?

From the reporting I have seen thus far, my conclusion is that this is not a revolution. It’s not even a civil war. What we have in Libya is just straight-up anarchy. It’s like a really, really bad sequel to a Mad Max movie (only much more chaotic and FAR less purposeful).

Unlike Bush, Obama has gotten us involved in a situation where we have NO national security interest. Hell, if anything, assisting the al Qaeda infested “Libyan” “rebels” will almost certainly CREATE a national security problem for us!

Unlike both Iraq AND Afghanistan, Obama did not even CONSULT with Congress (much less secure their approval) before launching us into the mess. Vice President Biden is on record strongly asserting that failure to do so is an impeachable offense. Even Obama has asserted that he had NO Constitutional authority to do this.

Who the HELL elected this buffoon? Sorry, that was a rhetorical question.

Was There a Natural Nuclear Blast on Mars?

Quoting Fox News
(reported on April Fool’s Day):
“About 180 million years ago, a planet-shattering yet naturally occurring nuclear reaction may have wiped out everything on Mars, sending a shockwave that turned the planet into dry sand.”
Is this for real?
Or, was it an April Fool’s joke?
