We Own This Country…

31 Aug

Clint Eastwood’s speech/rant/performance at the RNC last night must have effective – the mainstream hated it, but people generally thought it funny and pointed.

Chris Matthews and friends are unsure what to do with a Hollywood icon gone off the reservation…

In case you missed it…

“I heard that Clint Eastwood was channeling me at the RNC,” tweeted comic actor Bob Newhart, known for his one-sided conversation bits. “My lawyers and I are drafting our lawsuit.”

Obama’s America – Where Everything is Free – But You…

31 Aug

Dems give away tickets to Obama’s acceptance speech — at Taverns…

Everyone who is at Manuel’s Tavern or the Bibb County Democratic Party by noon is eligible for two tickets. Arrive early if you want, but it won’t give you a better chance to win. Just be there by 12 noon!

If less than 50 people arrive, everyone will get a pair! If more than 50 folks arrive, we will do a random drawing to determine our winners.

There is no cost involved. We’re not selling the tickets, we’re giving them away.

Guess there are some empty seats in Charlotte…

Faded Obama Posters – the Video

31 Aug

One of Paul Ryan’s best lines Wednesday night was that of a grown student living in his/her childhood bedroom, staring at their fading Obama poster on the wall – and beginning to understand just how much of a fool is Obama, and how their previous faith in him was misplaced…

Now the video…

 

You have only yourself to blame, but Barry isn’t helping…

EU Data – Garbage in…

31 Aug

Despite the euphoria of the Commies in the EU over the past couple of days, there remains the unsettling fact that all of the projections these crooks have made in the past have been wrong. There is no reason to expect this time will be any different.

The basis of every upward swing in Europe is some new agreement based on new data – the basis for every drop in EU sentiment is the realization that every new agreement is completely unworkable, because the data is flawed.

They’ll do everything they can to hang on to give Obama a better chance of winning in November… then…

It is now quite apparent that the numbers for all of the Spanish banks, all of them, are inaccurate if American standards are applied.

Their projections for Europe and each and every country in Europe have been wrong, dead wrong and far too optimistic. There is such a strong pattern here than I wonder if it is the methodology employed by the IMF or that the data provided by the European nations has been more fantasy than reality. Either option would provide a reason why the projections have been so incorrect and it may not be just one option or the other; but both.

…many have wondered, why the crisis in Europe is so severe and I believe that I have found the answer; we have been staring at numbers that are not real and, whatever the real numbers are, they are providing the consequences that result from their actuality.

Praying for a Marois Win in Quebec…

29 Aug

When Quebec has another referendum, can the rest of us vote?

Get ready, Stephen Harper. Pauline Marois is going to ask for a quarter of the foreign-aid budget, wants Quebec to name its own citizens and plans to tell Quebeckers that your foreign policy is a pretty good reason to separate from Canada…

…In an April speech, Ms. Marois argued international affairs are increasingly important to Quebeckers’ daily lives – and to the PQ’s sovereignty goal. “That’s happening at a time when Quebeckers recognize themselves less and less in Canadian foreign policy,” she said. “This evolution goes directly against the interests of the Quebec nation.”

When she says “interests of the Quebec nation” she means Quebec’s deep seated hatred of Israel

Don’t let the door hit you in the ass on the way out.

It Ain’t The Uterus, Stupid…

29 Aug

James Carville, big Dem strategist and pollster is credited with coined the famous “its the economy, stupid” just ran a poll…

Looks like he and Dem friends are discovering no amount of attention on the uterus, the condom or pill will win this thing for Barry (and his late term abortion pals at the DNC)… Despite all the card stacking and oversampling…it’s still the economy that will decide, and the indies are breaking HARD for Romney/Ryan...

Democracy Corps — that’s James Carville and Stan Greenberg’s polling outfit — has Romney up 16 points with independents.

16 points.

Voter ID typically runs low-to-mid 30s for Republicans and Democrats alike, leaving the remainder as Independents. What’s that mean? If Carville and Greenberg have it right (and many other polls show Romney way up with Indies), it can mean only one thing: Democrats are being oversampled, and grossly.

If this is the picture the Dems are prepared to release publicly, their internals must be terrifyingLandslide Romney?

The Italians Know its Over

29 Aug

Over 28,000 “cash for gold” shops in Italy – and business is booming…

“Since I was a child I remember that gold was given as a gift on various occasions and people used to say: ‘Put it aside’,” said Ivana Ciabatti, who represents gold– and silversmiths at employers’ lobby Confindustria.

“We used to laugh at it, but they turned out to be right. Many families are surviving thanks to this gold.”

Meanwhile, across the counter…

The pawnbrokers, by contrast, can hardly keep up with business. They normally have the gold quickly melted down and sent abroad, making it one of Italy’s fastest growing exports. Official gold sales to Switzerland leaped 65 per cent last year to 120 tonnes, up from 73 tonnes in 2010 and 64 tonnes in 2009.

That’s one way to diversify your economy

RCMP – Collars, Cuffs and Percussion…

28 Aug

Out an RCMP officer into S&M and you can expect a visit from his pals with their own cuffs and floggers to take you on your very own musical ride… Pierre Trudeau would be proud.

Watchdogs fear RCMP raid of blogger’s home ‘suspicious’

Michael Vonn, policy director for the BC Civil Liberties Association, said this type of warrant is rarely used.
“Almost invariably when it’s invoked, it’s a critic of the police,’’ Vonn said. “This should concern all Canadians.”
Police investigating a crime against themselves creates “a massive accountability deficit here.”

 

Apparently Trudeau’s Charter ain’t worth the parchment it’s printed on…

          Section 2: Everyone has the following fundamental freedoms:

  • (a) freedom of conscience and religion;
  • (bfreedom of thought, belief, opinion and expression, including freedom of the press and other media of communication;
  • (c) freedom of peaceful assembly; and
  • (d) freedom of association.

    Section 8:   Everyone has the right to be secure against unreasonable search or seizure.

Hollywood – Hate and Rage

28 Aug

What is it with so-called celebrities and Twitter?

Heterophobe Ellen Barkin;  She retweeted the message of one of her followers that read: “C’mon #Isaac! Wash every pro-life, anti-education, anti-woman, xenophobic, gay-bashing, racist SOB right into the ocean! #RNC ” Barkin did not express any disagreement in her retweet.

Racist Samuel L. Jackson: Jackson said in a profanity-filled tweet that he was “not understanding God’s plan” given the fact that the storm was not disrupting the Republican gathering. “Unfair s—,” the Oscar-nominated actor known for his colorful language said on Twitter.

“GOP spared by Isaac! NOLA prolly f—– again!”

Are these goofs still making movies? Barkin is OK from the neck down – apparently the xenophobe irony is lost on her, Jackson peaked in Pulp Fiction, but we always suspected he was a racist…

Makes sense to dis over half the movie going population…

The Spanish Know its Over

28 Aug

In the “scary chart” category – this one is terrifying…

Spain’s monthly deposit outflows, which in July hit the highest amount ever, and where the YTD deposit outflow is now the highest on record. One look at the chart below confirms that nobody in Spain got the June 29 Euro summit memo that “Europe

The Spanish people, at least those who still have some money, are getting it out of Spain as quickly as they can…
