A Leftard Receiving Just Punishment!!!!

image

You know, I don’t believe in “Karma”, but, I do believe you reap what you sow. 

So, there, once, was this leftard who voted for president Zero —- twice!!!  And, supported Zerocare. 

Yes, millions of fellow citizens told her this was a bad idea.  Millions of people said our government simply can’t run stuff as effectively as the private sector.  We showed her facts, figures, and historical examples!  But, a leftard’s brain is impervious to facts, figures, and history. 

Now, she reaps.  I hope the IRS targets her because of the angst against the government she’s spewing!

 

The long and short of her whining and bitching is that our government can’t seem to generate a tax form she needs to file her taxes because she signed up for and paid for her Zerocare insurance. 

That would be the same Zerocare she supported and helped impose on her fellow citizens and friends, the very same citizens and friends who repeatedly told her in 15 million ways from Sunday how and why this was a bad idea —- one of them being that it’s a bad idea because government does things poorly and most inefficiently.  Now, she’s bitching because she has to fax something to our government and then wait on the mail to see if they actually received her fax or not!    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!!!!11111111!!!!!!!!!!

Personally, I don’t care if Melissa Klein no longer supports Zerocare because she had a bad experience with Zerocare.  She demonstrated her intelligence and character when her stubbornness against facts and reality led her to help impose this monstrosity on innocent people.  People opposed to Zerocare, people who reached out to her to try to gain her support in opposition.  But, by her account, throughout it all, she supported Zerocare, and felt no compassion on the people who opposed the compulsory oppression to come.  Still, she barely recognizes the harm she’s done.  She only mentions the fact that possibly a million other people are in a similar position as she is.  Forget the millions who couldn’t actually afford this power grab, or the millions who can’t afford the fines and penalties —- she doesn’t mention these people.  It’s all about her, and her whiny-ass bitching about the things she helped impose on her fellow citizens.  May her problems continue until she understands that she should never advocate the loss of freedoms upon her fellow citizens.

Hillary’s Latest Scandal Which Won’t Touch Her

image

By now, we’ve all read or heard about this …..

Above the Law: Hillary Conducted All State Dept Business from Personal Email Account…

That she flagrantly violated US law in order to circumvent FOI laws will do no harm to her standing among the left …. including the LSM.  She’s done far worse, and yet, is the presumptive Dim presidential nominee, and stands a very good chance at being our next POTUS. 

Why?  Well, I’ll leave to the readers to explore as to why.  But, I believe it’s because very few today, believe character matters.  But, it is character which matters the most when we pick our leaders.  Principled ethics and convictions are bulwark against vile schemes and false promises.  To paraphrase a song, if you stand for nothing, then, you’ll fall for everything.  And, so it is for the US voters.  Objective morality is out, and the subjective sense of feeling good is in. 

Hillary won’t go to jail.  She should, but, she won’t.  Even though she knowingly violated US law, in order to circumvent another US law. 

Why can’t we get our leaders to feel any sort of compunction to follow the laws they impose on us?  Because we don’t demand it.  Indeed, if any law enforcement agency were to go after Hillary for violating our laws, they’d be accused of a partisan witch hunt, millions of Hillary supporters would turn out, and speeches on Capitol Hill would be ceaseless in support of her. 

I’m neither surprised by this revelation, nor, am I really angry towards Hillary.  She was simply doing what she had shown the entire nation she had no regard for this nation, our laws, or our people.  She was put in a position of high power because the people of this nation do not regard character as a prerequisite for a leadership position.

Disco Night!!!!!

Well, yes, clearly I’m feeling a bit odd tonight.  But, I thought, that will all my music posts I’ve posted, I never posted anything about disco.  Yes, much of it, if not most was musically abhorrent, and lyrically repugnant.  Still, there were tolerable songs which featured some really good vocals, and some beats for some great dance!  —–  Come on, now …. all of us gents thought about being that guy who could whirl and twirl the hottest girl around the dance floor like a pro!  Disco music nearly demanded that! 

Unfortunately for Disco, most people really didn’t want to invest the time to be great dancers just to look cool at the local discotec.   And, unfortunately for the listeners, Disco devolved into some mind-numbing beat with repetitive lyrics such as “that’s the way, uh-huh, I like it, uh-huh, huh, that’s the way, uh-huh, I like it, uh-huh, huh” …… over and over again.  Honestly, I blame disco for the advent of rap. 

Still, from time to time, I hear a song or two which takes me back …

I think Vickie Sue Robinson’s Turn the Beat Around was my fav from that poor genre.

In my mind’s eye, I think I can still see myself moving like that …. never really could, but, in my mind’s eye, I could!

 

Here’s another from that time and genre …

Bibi’s Speech!!!!

image

I haven’t read through the entire transcript, but, ……

Okay, well, I couldn’t help it.  I read it all.  It’s an excellent speech and great rhetoric.  I recommend people clicking on the link and reading the speech in it’s entirety.  

A great thing it does is beclowns team Zero and their near apocalyptic approach to Netanyahu’s speaking here.  He does a fantastic job of killing them with kindness.  But, make no mistake, the anti-Semitic wing of the left really and truly hates his speech.  This would make a greater political stir, had it not been for the Repubs folding on Zero’s amnesty proclamation. 

The part I liked the most is this …..

Not to sacrifice the future for the present; not to ignore aggression in the hopes of gaining an illusory peace. But I can guarantee you this, the days when the Jewish people remained passive in the face of genocidal enemies, those days are over.

We are no longer scattered among the nations, powerless to defend ourselves. We restored our sovereignty in our ancient home. And the soldiers who defend our home have boundless courage. For the first time in 100 generations, we, the Jewish people, can defend ourselves.

This is why — this is why, as a prime minister of Israel, I can promise you one more thing: Even if Israel has to stand alone, Israel will stand. But I know that Israel does not stand alone. I know that America stands with Israel. I know that you stand with Israel. You stand with Israel, because you know that the story of Israel is not only the story of the Jewish people but of the human spirit that refuses again and again to succumb to history’s horrors.

I would that all nations, born of free men and women, would say, act, and be in the same manner.  It should not be that nations of the world look to one, two, or three other nations of the world for protection.  Because, with that protection comes a terrible price which, I would not wish on any free man or woman in this world.

Congressional Repubs Should Move To The Philippines!!!!!

 

image

…… we could then call them the Manila Folders. 

VICTORY FOR OBAMA
House OKs funding for DHS, ends immigration standoff

Repubs easily fold at even a whiff of confrontation. 

I’ve seen leadership before, this isn’t it.  I’ve seen principled stubbornness, before.  This isn’t it.  I’ve seen people stand on their convictions before, this isn’t it.

I’ve seen cowardice before.  This seems strikingly similar. 

I’ve seen utter stupidity before, and this seems to hit it right on the head! 

It was a stupid plan.  I said so when they came up with this half-baked, lame brained idea.  They had 6 months to come up with a plan B …… a plan that wouldn’t make them look so much like the unprincipled cowards they are.   These idiots couldn’t even plan for failure properly.

Gems 2015 — March 3 Scripture Selection: Deuteronomy 28-30

Guest post by Jeanette Andrade

March 3 Scripture Selection: Deuteronomy 28-30

Food for Thought: Deut. 28:66, 67

Sadly, Deuteronomy 28, verses 66 and 67 describe the condition of the heart of so many people. They live in fear and stress and are never content. When it’s time to get up in the morning, they dread the day and wish it were evening. In the night, their sleep is restless, and they just hang on, hoping that morning would come soon. What bondage!

But there is a way to be content in whatever state we may find ourselves and not lose hope. The key is found in Jesus. Isaiah 9:6 calls Him “Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.” We also know Him as Lord of lords, King of kings, and Savior (to save us from all the curses caused by sin and give us life in abundance (John 10:10). When He moves into our hearts and is given His place to rule, reign, and minister His truth in us, life takes on new meaning. By His Spirit, even our mortal bodies are “quickened,” given life (Rom. 8:11). Then, with hope in Him, the future looks bright, regardless of the circumstances surrounding us.

The psalmist grasped this concept and was able to say in Psalm 4:8, “I will both lie down in peace, and sleep; for You alone, O Lord, make me dwell in safety.” In addition, we have the promise of this kind of peace in Isaiah 26:3: “You will keep him in perfect peace, Whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You.” Jesus Himself promised to give us peace, but not how the world defines it, in John 14:27. That understanding is what enabled the apostle Paul to state in Philippians 4:11-13 “Not that I speak in regard to need, for I have learned in whatever state I am, to be content: I know how to be abased, and I know how to abound. Everywhere and in all things I have learned both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” When we cast every care on Him as He asks us to do (I Pet. 5:7), then we are able to rest through the night and wake up ready to face the day that the Lord has made (Ps. 118:24).

Willie Soon Responds!

image

Well, there’s a lot out there on this, but, I think it best to let the man speak for himself.

From Breitbart, my bold.

STATEMENT BY DR. WEI-HOCK SOON

In recent weeks I have been the target of attacks in the press by various radical environmental and politically motivated groups. This effort should be seen for what it is: a shameless attempt to silence my scientific research and writings, and to make an example out of me as a warning to any other researcher who may dare question in the slightest their fervently held orthodoxy of anthropogenic global warming.

I am saddened and appalled by this effort, not only because of the personal hurt it causes me and my family and friends, but also because of the damage it does to the integrity of the scientific process. I am willing to debate the substance of my research and competing views of climate change with anyone, anytime, anywhere. It is a shame that those who disagree with me resolutely decline all public debate and stoop instead to underhanded and unscientific ad hominem tactics.

Let me be clear. I have never been motivated by financial gain to write any scientific paper, nor have I ever hidden grants or any other alleged conflict of interest. I have been a solar and stellar physicist at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics for a quarter of a century, during which time I have published numerous peer-reviewed, scholarly articles. The fact that my research has been supported in part by donations to the Smithsonian Institution from many sources, including some energy producers, has long been a matter of public record. In submitting my academic writings I have always complied with what I understood to be disclosure practices in my field generally, consistent with the level of disclosure made by many of my Smithsonian colleagues.

If the standards for disclosure are to change, then let them change evenly. If a journal that has peer-reviewed and published my work concludes that additional disclosures are appropriate, I am happy to comply. I would ask only that other authors—on all sides of the debate—are also required to make similar disclosures. And I call on the media outlets that have so quickly repeated my attackers’ accusations to similarly look into the motivations of and disclosures that may or may not have been made by their preferred, IPCC-linked scientists.

I regret deeply that the attacks on me now appear to have spilled over onto other scientists who have dared to question the degree to which human activities might be causing dangerous global warming, a topic that ought rightly be the subject of rigorous open debate, not personal attack. I similarly regret the terrible message this pillorying sends young researchers about the costs of questioning widely accepted “truths.”

Finally, I thank all my many colleagues and friends who have bravely objected to this smear campaign on my behalf and I challenge all parties involved to focus on real scientific issues for the betterment of humanity.

Well, it looks like our leftarded friends find themselves in a state of overreach. 

But, I wanted to highlight one of Willie’s quote ….

I am willing to debate the substance of my research and competing views of climate change with anyone, anytime, anywhere. It is a shame that those who disagree with me resolutely decline all public debate and stoop instead to underhanded and unscientific ad hominem tactics.

Well, now, you see, that’s the problem.  The climate crazies have long since given up on open debate.  They won’t because they can’t.  Some used to try, but, they lost, each and every time.  Sometimes they would have formal debates, and they’d lose.  Back in the day, they used to try to debate on the blogs, but, they fail, each time.  Oh, sure, there are still the occasional trolls and whatnot, but, they’re usually pretty funny, in a amusingly pathetic sense. 

The fact is, the skeptics have long since won the debate.  It’s mostly because of the grandiose claims made by the climate crazies, but, the argument has long been over.  The models so dearly held by the lunatics have been completely debunked.  Whatever magical crystal ball they thought they had has failed, over and over again.  The claims of a doomed part of the earth (most often the Arctic) never seems to materialize, even after a quarter of a century of dire prognostications.  Nothing ever happens! 

I think one of the most hilarious and most often overlooked part of the argument is/was their incessant insistence that weather isn’t climate,  and, yet, they’re reduced to looking towards weather events as their “proof” of climate change.   But, then, that older nuanced version of global warming belies the fact that skeptics have always argued that the climate always changes and it’s impossible to distinguish regular changes to whatever changes may or may not be attributable to humans for whatever reason. 

I don’t remember the first paper I read with Dr. Soon’s name on it, but, I’ve always found his papers to be well thought, well researched, and well done.  That the lunatics on the left have been reduced to their idiotic witch hunt is all the evidence one needs to know the actual argument is over.

Economic Spin Lunatics At It Again! Horrible News Spun To Make You Feel Good About Our Crappy Economy!!!

image

I thought both of these stories were special …. they’re funny, really …. well, if it wasn’t so sad.  The first story I thought to read was this one ………

US manufacturing slows as output and hiring weaken

WASHINGTON (AP) — U.S. factories expanded last month at their weakest pace in a year, with orders, hiring and production all growing more slowly.

The Institute for Supply Management, a trade group of purchasing managers, said Monday that its manufacturing index slipped to 52.9 in February from 53.5 in January. It was the fourth straight drop and the lowest reading since January 2014. Still, any reading above 50 signals expansion.

The ISM’s measures of production and employment fell sharply, though they remained in expansionary territory. That suggests that factories are still adding jobs but at a slower pace than in January.

U.S. manufacturers have been held back in recent months by weak growth in China, Europe and Japan. That’s been partly offset by strong consumer demand in the United States. ……

Wait!!!  What?  That last part ….. I skipped another headline to read this story, let’s see what that one was…..

Consumer spending drops 0.2 percent in January

If you read the story attached to the above headline, you’ll see a nice re-write.  Apparently, dropping consumer spending doesn’t fit the narrative. So, they do what I’ve never seen done before, adjust the consumer spending to price changes …… which is ridiculous.

WASHINGTON (AP) — U.S. consumers spent less for a second consecutive month in January, but the weakness came from a big decline in gas prices. Excluding price changes, consumer spending was up in January and analysts expect strong income gains will fuel further solid increases in spending in the months ahead.

Consumer spending declined 0.2 percent in January following a 0.3 percent drop in December, the Commerce Department reported Monday. But the weakness in both months was heavily influenced by big declines in gas prices. Excluding price changes, consumer spending rose 0.3 percent in January and would have been down a smaller 0.1 percent in December. ……

I would have spent more if the prices weren’t so low …….. :|  Idiots.  They’re actually trying to describe purchases of goods and services, rather than describe actual consumer spending. 

OTOH, we can all take some time to point and laugh at them for powning themselves and their deflationary death spiral nonsense they continuously spew. 

A couple of other notes …. as I recollect, the gasoline prices had pretty much stabilized in January.  They’re on their way back up, now.  Much of the price increase in the US for gasoline prices is because the refineries have to stop refining and switch over to the way it is demanded of them for the summer.  Summer gasoline demand is always much higher than winter demand.  I don’t know where the prices will end up, but, I’m thinking somewhere south of $3/gallon.  For the $2/gallon, we won’t see it until next winter, if then.

Tell Me Again About The Brilliance Of Arming “Moderate” Syrian Rebels —- Group Disbands After US Gives Them Anti-Tank Missiles …. :|

First US-backed Syrian rebel group to get weapons disbands

The first Syrian rebel group to receive major military aid from the United States announced over the weekend that it was disbanding. 

The Wall Street Journal reported that leaders of Harakat Hazm, mostly based in northern Syria, decided to dissolve the group after a series of battles against the Nusra Front, an Al Qaeda-linked group that has emerged alongside ISIS as a major force in Syria’s kaleidoscopic civil war. 

Hazm spokesman Ahmad al-Ataribi told the Journal on Sunday that dozens of its fighters were killed fighting against the Nusra Front, which recently seized a key base from the Free Syrian Army, another Western-backed group. Al-Ataribi said that as long as the group remained extant, it would continue to be a target for more extreme opposition groups and serve as a distraction from the organization’s ultimate goal of overthrowing Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

The group had received American-made antitank missiles late last year as part of the Obama administration’s stated goal of increasing military aid to moderate rebel groups. However, Hazm members said what military aid did arrive was never enough to sustain operations, and also made them targets of their more radical Islamist rivals, who looked at them as U.S. puppets. 

“Moderate forces, backed by Western countries and moderate Arab countries, have this scarlet letter on their backs, yet they are not sufficiently resourced in terms of military aid to defeat Nusra,” said Oubai Shahbandar a former spokesman for the exiled Syrian National Coalition. “So there’s a clear contradiction in terms of Western strategy in fighting extremism in Syria.”

And, because of the success of this arms program, we plan on repeating it.  I feel sorry for the ambassador and team in Syria when the CIA begins that weapons buy-back program.
