So, you’ve stumbled onto my humble little blog. Perhaps you are a Millenial wondering why most of your friends aren’t fully employed. Or wondering why ObamaKare is being shoved down your throat. Or why your generation is on the hook for a national debt that stands at $17 $18 Trillion and counting. Maybe you are scratching your head wondering why your President thinks Global Warming the weather is more worrisome than Islamic Terror. And perhaps you’ve started to become aware there might be something the corrupt and biased lame stream media isn’t telling you. The answer, to these and other existential questions, is ... the Left - specifically, the modern American Progressive. Think of this site as a portal to a richer understanding of this answer, a portal purposely designed with a consciously cock-eyed bent to keep it entertaining. Because the First Amendment is forever and the Internet never forgets. (Plus you better figure out FICA isn't the name of a Swedish bikini model, before she eats your entire paycheck.)

How to use the portal? You could dive into my archive*. I was most active here 2010-2012, but that matters not. How many times do I need to demonstrate the central point? To wit, the political / ideological Left is a menace to the constitutional republic and must be resisted lest the American experiment in liberty devolve into socialist dystopia. If it's the more pointed hand-to-hand combat of the comment board that whets your appetite, click the 'My Disqus Comments' widget. I continue to visit that world from time to time as a light diversion. Or you could browse through my blog roll. It's a very representative collection of center-right blogs, though hardly exhaustive. I can't do the political / ideology thing 24x7, and you probably can't either. Leave that to the hysterical, talking point chanting, mob agitating, race baiting, election stealing, gaia worshiping, straw man torching, Islamic Terrorist appeasing, organized Left (aka OFA, MSNBC, UAW, SEIU, Think Progress, Media Matters, most of legacy media, the politically correct faculty lounge, anybody who belonged to Journolist, anybody connected to Occupy Wall Street, anything funded by George Soros or Tom Steyer, their paid Internet trolls, and the rest of the usual Team Leftie suspects).

On the Sequestration Clown Car Wreck

I shall now proceed to pat myself on the back, as I often do in this space.

When the so-called "Super Commission" was formed in the summer of 2011, consisting of the usual Congressional suspects, to forge a so-called "grand deal" on taxes and spending, with a trigger for failure built in that has come to be known as 'sequestration' - I posted this opinion on 8/2/11:
I find the uber stupid super commission to be at best the usual DC establishment cop out. I fear it could be far worse – a trap set by the Left that they will close by obstructing the commission’s work to ‘trigger’ steep defense cuts they care deeply about acquiring. The parallel provider-side Medicare cuts* are a speed bump to them, and they probably already have a secret plan for making it whole with their new credit limit out of this deal.
*For some reason, my understanding of the crazy quid-pro-quo at that time was defense for medicare. It doesn't necessarily mean I was wrong on the day I wrote it. It could just as well be the deal morphed behind closed doors into the across the board non-discretionary cuts in discretionary spending we are discussing today. Team Leftie probably secretly figured out at a later date a better way to distribute the most pain to the most people with this 'trigger,' then tricked the hapless GOP into agreeing to it.

When the ridiculous commission of grandstanding peacocks inevitably failed, I posted this on 10/2/11:
And finally, slightly off topic yet very indicative of what we're dealing with: I tried to warn the establishment GOP the uber duper commission is a Leftist trap.*

Guess who LAS is, and who the establishment GOP operatives are, in this classic Python clip.

*This intro to the video clip was originally linked to a Breitbart article titled Dems Insist on Tax Hikes in Deficit Talks.


So, having established as much credibility on this topic as any credentialed bloviating hack in DC ... I shall now opine on the republic's current circumstance.

Our political "leaders" are promising chaos and ruin if, God forbid, they should take a 2% hair cut in discretionary spending.

They trot out Homeland Security genius Janet "the system worked when the Christmas Day bomber was thwarted by a Dutch artist" Napolitano to warn us DHS cannot possibly keep us secure with a 2% budget cut. Hey, Janet, why not keep a few of those gas guzzling DHS SUVs I see cruising around town with no apparent mission parked for a few days? I'm sure the State Department can loan you a few Chevy Volts from its Green Embassies program.

Transportation Secretary Ray What's Under LaHood warns of chaos in the skies because he will need to send home droves of air traffic controllers. Oh really? Hey, Ray, when that happens I want a full accounting of what was spent by your department on salaries and benefits for desk bound bureau-weenies.


These clowns can beclown themselves so because the big lie within the Big Lie is they have no discretion over how this 2% cut is applied. Such discretion could be acquired with the stroke of the President's pen, either by signing a simple one line law he was willing to negotiate with Congress or unilaterally by Executive Order. While he has demonstrated no capacity to muster the basic leadership skills for the former, he has certainly shown no hesitation to illegitimately act on the latter when it suits his purposes.

Managing the federal budget has never suited the purposes of the Prophet Barack. He doesn't have the experience, skills, or inclination to manage or lead anything. He is a Leftist community agitator in the Saul Alinsky mold through and through - meaning his modus operandi past, present, and future is to foment chaos for the purpose of lying, dissembling, and demagogue-ing his way to political advantage.

He was brought forth in 2008 by the Left solely because of his melanin level. His complexion was a uniting factor for the Left's race based politics as well as a tranquilizing factor for the low information voter. His radical past was hidden and his thin record puffed up by a sycophantic press corps in the tank for the political Left. This formula gave him a 53% - 46% popular vote victory.

Through a chaotic first term marked by an unbroken string of manufactured crises, like the Great Debt Ceiling Debacle of 2011 that brought us here, the republic's economy stayed stuck on "sucks." Simultaneously, America's international standing declined as Radical Islam's Caliphate gained new footholds across the globe.

Despite this miserable record of governance, the same formula dragged him across the finish line on 6 November 2012 with a reduced 51%-47% margin - ensuring four more years of lurching from one crisis to another. Fiscal Cliff and now Sequestration are just the beginning. Only 1422 days to go. Thanks low information voter. Thanks corrupt and biased liberal media.

Update 3/1/13

Beware the ides of March ... Sequesteration has hit! I made the effort this morning to document my commute to work.

Update #2 3/1/13

Reaganite Republican has an excellent article covering the Empty Suit's "chicken little" political strategy. Let me remind you we are talking about a 2% decline in the rate of growth for the federal budget. It's like saying your household is doomed, doomed, I say, if your budget only grew from 50 grand to $59,800 this year instead the previously expected $60,000.

Who Are You

Evil right wing talk radio host Chris Plante did some excellent vast right wing conspiratorial ranting last Friday, on the topic of evil Republican voter suppression conspiracies Democrat poll fraud schemes. Listen to the podcast here.

Predictably, all the talk of photo identification immediately brought to mind the classic song by The Who under the title Who Are You.
I woke up in a Soho doorway
The policeman knew my name
He said, "You can go sleep at home tonight
If you can get up and walk away"
Or, as it applies more to the topic at hand, with slight mods,
I woke up in a Philly doorway
OFA knew my name
Said, "You can have a hundred bucks tonight
If you vote twice for me, hey OK?"*
*140% voter participation? 100% - 0% vote count margins? Really? In which parallel universe is that?

All the talk about protecting the rule of law at the polls also brought back to mind this little email exchange I recently had with the rabid OFA operative known as Eric Byler ...

You see, I'm on this blockhead's mailing list. And I know he reads my little replies, because we previously had this little exchange ...

The Left thinks last November's squeaker gives them the running room to institute their entire agenda all at once. They are counting on the same enabler that gave them the election in the first place - the complacency of the low information voter. Team Leftie needs to feel what it's like to have their political "enemies" (Obama's term) get up in their faces (Obama's advice.) Welcome to Obama's America.

Update 2/19/13

And today's poster child for tightening it up at the polling place ... drum roll, please ... is .... Melowese Richardson of Cincinnati, Ohio.

I love her defense - "I had no intention of doing exactly what I did."
Richardson claimed she had submitted an absentee ballot, but was afraid her vote would not count so she also voted in person. She also said she voted in the name of her granddaughter and yet another person.

"There was absolutely no intent on my part to commit any voter fraud," she insisted.

Benghazi Truthing, February 7

Time for an update. Obama punted to Panetta for U.S. response to Benghazi attack.

Apparently it doesn't even need to be 3 am to be too early for the call.

In the search for the truth about what happened before, during, and after the most spectacular foreign affairs debacle since the Iranian hostage crisis of 1979 a picture fitting the character of the Empty Suit Known as Barack Hussein Obama is emerging.

Incompetence before, lack of leadership during, and corrupt political coverup after. Man, would I love to speak to Carter Ham off the record.


As far as Hillary's 2016 candidacy is concerned, I got a feeling that 3 am call meme is going to haunt her dreams of heading the first progressive regime lead by an old female who stood by her lecherous man. That and her doctoral thesis on Saul Alinksy, of course.

Update 2/11/13

A few thoughts on the Benghazi 'after' situation. Have the responsible Islamists been held to account? Have they even been identified? Didn't think so. Is it incompetence, lack of leadership, or corrupt international politics? I don't know ... ask the Saul Alinsky radical occupying the Oval Office.

I've been reading a lot lately about Barack Hussein Obama's prowess as a skeet shooter.

Very amusing. What's up with the odd angle of aim for the sport of skeet shooting? Is Bo the pet dog down range, and the former leader of the Choom Gang is flashing back to his days as a connoisseur of canine dishes under Lolo's tutelage? Why all the smoke? Is Camp David still stocking black powder from the Revolutionary war?

The most amusing aspect of this story, as far as I'm concerned, is the imperious and officious directive from the hacks of the White House to not "photoshop" their already ridiculous image. Many patriotic citizens of the blogosphere naturally ignored this silly command.

SooperMexican via Totus Blog connects the metrosexual President with his unwavering support for gay rights ...

Saberpoint depicts Obama firing on the Occupy Wall Street mob ...

The Black Sphere adds the one missing element that might tie it all together ...

Free Republic shows us how it probably went down in reality ...


What's not amusing at all is the explanation for how such a ridiculous image can enter the public discourse in the first place. The President of the United States has no idea who he is outside of politics. He told an obvious lie about who he is in an interview, to further his political interests, then compounded the lie by rushing out a ridiculous photo to cover for the obviously ridiculous lie.

Kind of like how the Benghazi cover up has unfolded, isn't it?


OK, I wasn't first on the Intertubes with 'BullSkeet' - that honor seems to belong to Blonde Sagacity - but I did come up with it independently. Scout's honor.
