This man writes for the Boston Globe. He is quite possibly the only one there with a working brain cell. Well, other than the sportswriters, because I hate the Yankees.
All people should live in freedom. No one has the right to “run a nation” like a prison camp. Those are core American truths – truths most Democrats once understood in their bones. Do they still?
Read his excellent column here.
A Verbal Diarrhea Alert has been issued for the DLO reading area. Today’s oral defecation comes to us not just from one but from many — The Congressional Black Caucus. Also known as commie boot licking useful idiots, some CBC members made a trek to Havana to sip a few mojitos, smile at the quaint natives, and continue Obama’s meme of blaming the United States for every evil.
However, no visit to Havana could be complete without a meeting with Murder, Inc. — the Castro brothers. Here they are hanging on little brother’s every word (indulging in a little verbal diarrhea himself, no doubt) . . . . .
Now, no visit to Cuber would be complete for these fellow travelers without an audience with The Don himself, El Coma Andante. So, without any further ado, the diarrhea:
“It was quite a moment to behold,” Lee said, recalling her moments with Castro.
“It was almost like listening to an old friend,” said Rep. Bobby Rush (D-Il.), adding that he found Castro’s home to be modest and Castro’s wife to be particularly hospitable.
“In my household I told Castro he is known as the ultimate survivor,” Rush said.
Rep. Laura Richardson (D-Ca.) said Castro was receptive to President Obama’s message of turning the page in American foreign policy.
“He listened. He said the exact same thing” about turning the page “as President Obama said,” said Richardson.
Richardson said Castro knew her name and district. “He looked right into my eyes and he said, ‘How can we help? How can we help President Obama?'”
Yeah, right. And if you believe that, then sunshine and bunny rabbits are about to hop out of his surgically repaired ass.
But, my friends, all is not lost. Someone does get it. Let’s wipe diarrhea with the venerable Thomas Sowell . . . .
How a man who holds the entire population of a country as his prisoners, and punishes the families of those who escape, can be admired by people who call themselves liberals is one of the many wonders of the human mind’s ability to rationalize. Yet such is the case with Fidel Castro.
More from Sowell (emphasis mine):
Barack Obama seems determined to repeat every disastrous mistake of the 1930s, at home and abroad. He has already repeated Herbert Hoover’s policy of raising taxes on high income earners, FDR’s policy of trying to micro-manage the economy and Neville Chamberlain’s policy of seeking dialogues with hostile nations while downplaying the dangers they represent.
Step 1: Go to Iowahawk.
Step 2: Read the often astonishing, always hilarious, post du jour.
Step 3: Clean (spewed coffee / chewed up bagel pieces / snot) off of monitor screen.
Step 4: Shamelessly create post linking his brilliance.
Step 5: Welcome visitors (even those who don’t poke around)
Let’s try it out…
This Verbal Diarrhea Alert is so unbelievably surreal, that Obi Wan (aka Iowahawk) doesn’t even find the need to editorialize.
Ladies and Gentlemen… The Esteemed Gentlewoman from the Great State of Florida…. The United States Congresswoman, representing the people of the 3rd Congressional District. The never underestimated, always insightful… Ms. Corrine Brown!!!!”
She is now serving in her 8th session of Congress. EIGHTH!
Ho. Lee. Crap.
Barack Hussein Obama is not a misguided yet well intentioned left-leaning moderate. He is not a pragmatic, well-spoken, amateur statesman who is finding his way. He is a deceitful, conniving, ill-intentioned fear-monger who is doing everything he can to establish a permanent ideological, economic and cultural lurch to the left… There I said it. Wow! That feels good.
He’s not taking his time either… In less than 60 days, we have witnessed the largest ingress of government control into the free markets in modern history. By the words relayed to us from the mighty tele-prompter we have been informed that we are ending the War on Terror as we know it because it is high-time we Americans learn how bad we make the rest of the world feel when we mistreat the poor, misunderstood, freedom fighters in Gitmo whom we have unjustly hung by their scrotums (Is the sarcasm thick enough? If not, please let me know. I delight in lathering it on.) Through the power of Executive Order, we have seen the return of pro-death policies such as the lifting of the Mexico City policy and the return of Embryonic Stem-Cell Research. (With the latter, our Mighty Instiller of Fear has once again opened up the door to human cloning… only for “research purposes” mind you (yeah, right!) Eugenics, here we come! Wouldn’t Margaret Sanger be proud? Maybe we can get rid of that pesky self-reliance, liberty seeking gene?)
Through all of this we have been told to sit back and not question what the man and his cronies are up to because he has a mandate to lead and we must give him time and opportunity to do so. When other duly elected leaders such as the Minority leadership in Congress questioned him on the wisdom of the Spendulus Package, they were told to sit down and shut up. When noted liberal and respected financial guru, Jim Cramer (who is a vocal advocate of most of Obama’s policies) questioned the sanity of Obama’s choices to raise taxes on business and investment while the stock market is crumbling, he was cast to the street and ridiculed by Bobby Gibbs (wasn’t he a Bee-Gee?) as a nut-job that has a “small audience”. All the while, his Urukai are brazenly boasting that they are leveraging this economic crisis to their advantage to ramrod their predetermined agenda up our collective asses. (Link to an EXCELLENT op.ed. by Jonah here. )
Given the vast amount of deceit, hypocrisy, acrimony and pure bullshit that is spewing forth from the administration on a daily basis, we think that this is the perfect time to launch the newest page at The Disloyal Opposition:
In homage to Chairman Mao and LBJ, two of Obama’s apparent mentors, TLRB will be our little cozy place on the Web where we can document Dear Leader’s pearls of wisdom (read – steaming piles of crap) for all of the world to see. We look forward to your contributions to TLRB, however there will be strict guidelines. We want the page to be an authoritative account of Obama and his administration in THEIR OWN WORDS, especially when their words can be juxtaposed and contrasted with reality (e.g. Obama’s promise to eliminate earmarks line by line in budgets while being transparent in all things as opposed to him signing the pork laden budget bill yesterday behind closed doors.)
For now, if you would like to suggest content for TLRB, please leave comments on TLRB‘s page (link / tab above). Soon we will have an email setup for submissions. If we approve the submission (i.e. We can validate its authenticity and it provides value in drawing attention to Obama’s corruption, hypocrisy and lies) we will post it to TLRB‘s page.
Let the fun begin.
First – on the minute chance that anyone is still checking in periodically, let me apologize for my protracted absence. As Louis wrote, life sometimes gets in the way and in my case that has especially been so. My mother suffered a major stroke a little less than a month ago. The past few weeks have been spent focusing on her care and transitioning her back home. Thankfully, she is recovering nicely. With continued rehabilitation, time and prayers, we expect her to make a full recovery.
That being said, even if this crisis hadn’t happened, I cannot confidently state that I would have (or for that matter – could have) amassed enough energy, concentration, heart and fervor to blog much anyway. The simple truth is that I am discouraged, disheartened, distraught, disincentivized and pretty much any other “dis” word that you could think of by the course that our country is finding itself on. This frame of mind is not conducive to being creative, articulate and inspired. Regardless, I am compelled to force myself into a renewed habit of putting my thoughts to “paper” in the hope that maybe something good, productive, inspiring and insightful might come of it. So here we go…
As it has been so long and so much has transpired since my last post, I thought it would be best to compartmentalize my thoughts into several different posts over the next few days.
Today’s Topic: Rush Limbaugh
Rush has been targeted by the left and the media (sorry – redundant) as an evil ignoramus who is hell bent on the destruction of America by publicly wishing Dear Leader his worst. By taking Rush’s comments that he wants Obama to fail out of context, the smear campaign (orchestrated by no less than the White House itself) is in full effect. This obfuscation serves two purposes. First it diverts the attention of the unwashed, inherently headline focused, masses to this kerfuffle while the Obama Administration sells our country to the lowest bidding foreign power. Second, it distracts the Conservative Movement and the Republican Party (unfortunately there is a major difference between the two these days) from focusing in on and combating the common enemy of Big-Government Liberalism, and redirects attention to a futile and counterproductive in-fight where such “principled” spokesmen as HRIC (Head RINO in Charge) Steele and Newt “Wow! Thanks for the food. Can I now bite your hand” Gingrich lambast Rush as being incendiary and out of bounds. (Warning – both links are to HuffPost… You may need hot shower and extreme eye scrub once you visit… At the very least, wipe your feet before coming back in 😉 )
Disclaimer – I am not a Ditto-head. I used to be a devotee of the man, however I must admit that I have not paid much attention to him as of late (“late” being the past 10 years or so). It is not that I think him irrelevant, it is that I personally do not care for his self-aggrandizement. I perceive it as buffoonish. That being said (Sorry – I use that phrase a lot), the man is correct. Obama’s policies (which are as far left as this country has ever witnessed) need to fail. For if they succeed, we will no longer enjoy the liberties and opportunities that this nation has provided to us. Every aspect of Obama’s agenda – uncontrolled and misdirected spending and inconceivable tax hikes during a recession, horrific policies on abortion, ESCR, and other life issues, ad hoc / half-baked policies regarding Gitmo and the War on Terror that will put our nation in grave danger and the eminent nationalization of health care system – drives us further down the path of European Socialist Democracy. I too hope that our Lecturer in Chief fails. I pray that he fails MISERABLY. His policies must not stand and his administration must not succeed.
You know all of this self-righteous indignation would be ironic if the hypocrisy wasn’t so blatant… Just a few months ago, it was considered patriotic to denigrate our President. In fact, the vitriolic spew leveled at President Bush was championed as the pinnacle of free speech and political discourse. An entire cottage industry of t-shirts, bumper-stickers, placards and the like was born. Cafe Press and other similar sites were churning out orders for the “Somewhere in Texas a Village is Missing its Idiot”, “When Clinton Lied, No One Died” and who could ever forget the dandy: “Bush, Pull Out Like your Daddy Should Have!” sticker? The principle stoker of this fire, James “Cletus” Carville, moments before the first plane hit the World Trade Center, himself stated that he hoped Bush would fail. These same idiots are now crying foul that the most consistent and principled voice of modern conservatism disagrees with the most Liberal President ever?!?? Not to fear though. I am sure that the above the fold, front page exposé on the hypocrisy of this whole episode is imminent. Can someone check the New York Times Sunday edition for me?
Tomorrow’s Topic: Spendulus!
This is sooo much fun.
Watch, the Head Spokes-Douche, Robert Gibbs (I mean c’mon… Where in the hell did they find this guy?!!? He makes Scott McClellan look like a modern day Emerson), as he gets bent over the podium by his presumed Comrade in the Media, Jack Trapper, while trying to brush off an amazing feat of actual journalistic inquiry:
“Oh you want to dismiss my question, do you? How about I shove an embarrassing, yet chewy, little stat up your ass illustrating the lack of support for your Generalamisimo’s stimulusless bill, dickhead?!!?”
I like mine buttered with light salt. How do you take yours?
