  • Small Vermont Town Latest Sad Example of Oversensitivity Epidemic

    08/29/2014 6:12:45 AM PDT · 4 of 22
    Jim Scott to Kaslin
    From the article:

    City manager Katherine Decarreau tingled with glee as she celebrated the stifling of free expression on the altar of contrived offense. "The cool part of living in a diverse community is that it's not always comfortable,” she said. “It’s a fascinating place with lots of opportunities for conversation.”

    This willful surrender to the complaint of a Muslim about a sign that advertised bacon and the town manager's dopey response that reeks with politically correctness is both amusing as it reflects the insanity of the left in America and sad as it also reflects the rapid erosion of our constitutional right to free speech, taken incrementally, one piece at a time.

    That this incident was motivated by a Muslim complaining about a sign advertising bacon (on public property) indicates how easy it is to intimidate Americans with PC rubbish. So much for the joys of multiculturalism.

  • Bobby Jindal is playing politics with Common Core, Louisiana students: Editorial

    Jim Scott to Oldeconomybuyer
    Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal is waking up late but at least he is waking up to the attempt by the federal government to control the state's school curriculum via 'Common Core'. A rigid teaching system that precludes much critical thinking and is camouflaged as 'state run' when it is actually federally run using federal 'standards'. Local input is pretty much non-existent. Its a con by the left. Jindal is right to fight it.

    Automation will eliminate most of the fast-food jobs and this demand for salaries far above the workers value to the business will simply accelerate that inevitability. Idiots.

  • The Blumenthal “Kill Them Later and Later” Bill

    07/18/2014 6:47:39 AM PDT · 6 of 12
    Jim Scott to Kaslin
    Richard Blumenthal is one of my state's senators. Chris Murphy is the other. Both are hardcore leftists in a deep 'blue' state where their re-election is essentially guaranteed.

    This is why the Democrats use people like Bluementhal, a notorious publicity hound when he was Connecticut Attorney General, to originate this kind of evil legislation. No matter what they do, they don't have to fear being turned out when they next run for re-election and both Blumenthal and Murphy know it, as does their corrupt party.

    I hope enough senators see the growing public revulsion to abortion and refuse to sign on to, much less pass this Bill. I suspect that, realizing the Democrats are about to lose control of the senate, we'll see lots of terrible legislation such as this in the next few months and a blizzard of it right after the November 4th election as Democrats attempt to ram unwanted laws down our throats as they depart the senate.

    This Bill is who they really are - and it is revolting.

    Very encouraging news from North Carolina!

    It's long past time to push back on the left's assault on religious expression in public schools and elsewhere. This is a great start that we can hope will encourage other states to consider similar common-sense legislation pertaining to the right of public school students to reference God in their essays or form voluntary religious clubs devoted to prayer, worship and good works.

    The secular left has had it their way for decades as religious expression was forbidden in public schools as if it were toxic. I believe our nation has been diminished because of their 'success'. Let's fight back!

  • Georgia On My Mind: Steyn's Song of the Week

    06/09/2014 1:06:19 PM PDT · 7 of 14
    Jim Scott to mojito
    Great Mark Steyn piece that gives both Ray Charles and Hoagy Carmichael their due for a song (and performance) that helped Ray's career reach another level of greatness.

    Ray had recently left Atlantic Records and signed with ABC Paramount when this recording was released. 'Georgia' was included on his first album for ABC: 'The Genius Hits The Road'.

    Radio stations loved it because, in 1960, most of the big AM stations were still controlled by middle-aged men who were never comfortable with rock and roll. Ray Charles, then only 30, and best known for his blues/rock style, was eagerly accepted as a 'mainstream' performer when he released this mournful ballad backed by what sounds like a few dozen violins. It wasn't exactly rock and roll but, thanks to Ray's soulful rendition of the old song, America liked it and radio play helped make the song #1 in late 1960.

    Ray would have other hit records, including the catchy 'call and response' pop song from 1961: 'Hit The Road, Jack'. Still, 'Georgia' remains Ray's signature song for those who were listening to the radio back in 1960.

  • The Five: Unlike Hillary, Palin Was Fair Game to Media Because She’s ‘Not Human’

    05/21/2014 11:18:09 AM PDT · 7 of 31
    Jim Scott to 2ndDivisionVet
    Sarah Palin is a Christian conservative that revels in a physically challenging lifestyle and that is absolutely foreign to the media elites.

    Palin's stable marriage, her obvious love for her children and most of all, her conservative political views, made her 'fair game' for the leftist character assassins because she was, in their jaundiced view, an alien creature that warranted elimination before she influenced others.

    Palin was gravely wounded in one sense but recovered and if not a viable political candidate right now, may yet be. Especially as America feels the pain of the socialist schemes being foisted upon us by Obama and the Democrats.

  • George H.W. Bush Given Courage Award For 1990 Tax Hikes

    05/05/2014 11:42:51 AM PDT · 9 of 26
    Jim Scott to nickcarraway
    As I understand it, the congressional Democrats made a deal with President G.H.W. Bush to cut spending if he would raise some taxes. He agreed. Of course, the Democrats reneged on the spending cuts but not until Bush had committed to the tax hikes.

    Then, in '92, the Democrats pilloried Bush for 'lying' (in the '88 campaign) when he had stated 'read my lips, no new taxes'. Bush lost his re-election bid.

    Now, a quarter-century later, the former president, 90 next month, is given an 'award' for 'courage' by the left. In effect, President Bush is being mocked and the concept of a Republican raising your taxes celebrated.

    Too bad the always-polite Bush didn't tell them where they could put their 'award'.

  • One Person Claps for Obama at The Hague

    03/27/2014 2:25:23 PM PDT · 14 of 25
    Jim Scott to Kaslin
    Obama and his feckless foreign policy of appeasement and 'leading from behind' (far behind) is not only weakening the U.S. but in doing so he is alienating allies, emboldening enemies and making much of the world nervous because whatever they may complain about regarding America, they realize that up until now, our nation has often been the only thing between chaos and stability in the world. Under Obama, that is drifting away, by design.

    Ironically for the narcissist Obama, his deliberate show of weakness is reflecting badly on him more than anything. Hence, the tepid reception to his latest puff of wind. He deserves the disdain.

  • High court to weigh limits of religious liberty in O-Care case

    Jim Scott to 353FMG
    Is it true that muzzies are exempted from signing up to Zerocare? If so, why?

    Not specifically. However, the law has a exemption provision for those adherents of a religion that has a 60-year (or longer) history and traditionally rejects any form of insurance including Social Security (the Amish, for instance). Muslims may well apply for this exemption and have it granted but not yet as that would trigger even more backlash against the Unaffordable Care Act.

  • Gingrich: As soon as 2016 is about substance, Hillary starts losing support, literally, overnight

    03/23/2014 2:31:42 PM PDT · 16 of 52
    Jim Scott to Din Maker
    Gingrich has a point but the same could have been said of Barack Obama in 2008 - and he won the election. Voters rarely focus on substance but on perception.

    However, Hillary has little going for her but a fading political cachet and the fact that her election as president would be - all together now -'historic'. Voters did that once with Obama and may not want to gamble again following his tremendous disappointment for many young voters.

    As always, Hillary's success or failure will have a lot to do with who the Republican party nominates. Another RINO and she likely wins it. A real conservative opponent and she may flounder and fail, as she should.

  • Pelosi Laughably Claims Democrats Are The Jobs Party (She's beyond help)

    Jim Scott to jazusamo

    If the Democrats plan to run on a ‘jobs’ platform and embracing Obamacare, they are toast. However, San Fran Nan Pelosi is part of the Washington, D.C. ‘bubble’. Politicians in ‘safe’ seats that live an alternate universe where they are ‘royalty’ and we’re peons. Most congressional Democrats have to live in the real world and they are, unfortunately, not quite stupid enough to pretend Obamacare is a big success and that the jobs that have not materialized under the Obama administration (five years and counting) have nothing to do with them - or their president. As the articles states: ‘good luck with that’.

  • John McCain Says Ted Cruz "Crossed a Line," Should Apologize to Bob Dole

    03/09/2014 12:08:17 PM PDT · 58 of 75
    Jim Scott to imardmd1
    As has been repeatedly mentioned in this thread, Ted Cruz was making the point that Republican candidates such as McCain, Romney and Dole were good and decent men but campaigned as 'me-too' Republicans against the Democrat. None of these GOP presidential candidates stood up for Republican First principles beyond lip service. They followed the 'moderate' template that assumes only a quasi-liberal 'Republican' can possibly hope to defeat a liberal Democrat, which was proven wrong in the 3 presidential contests McCain, Romney and Dole participated in.

    McCain bringing up the service record of Bob Dole and subtly implying Cruz insulted McCain, also, was a smokescreen to deflect the truth of what Cruz stated.

    If stating what millions of fed-up Republicans already know is being 'brash' and, in your opinion, requires 'correctional experiences' then the GOP is in serious trouble with conservatives. We've sat by and watched the alleged wise men of the party hierarchy effectively cede winnable elections to the Democrat while the Republican candidate 'took the high road' - to defeat. We're done with that and if the GOP insists on trying the same tactic and getting the same defeats, we're done with the Republican party and it's aversion to 'brash' senators who state the truth.

    Ted Cruz did not denigrate the military service of Dole or McCain. Their service does not give these men a pass on accountability for their failure to stand on Republican principle when they ran for president. McCain using Dole’s (and by association, his own) military service as a rationale to not criticize either man’s presidential campaign failures is as lame as McCain’s 2008 campaign.

    Jim Scott to Jim Robinson
    Sarah Palin is hardly the cluelss bumpkin the leftmedia and Washington elites try to portray. Her prescience regarding Obama's bumbling presidency, the Obamacare death panels and now, Russia's reaction to the uprising in the Ukraine are just some of the predictions Palin made five years ago that are proving true.

    Sarah Palin is astute and has the fortitude to take the left's flaming arrows and remain standing. Unfortunately, the voting public is not cognizant of Palins correct views and most likely assume she is what the leftmedia claim. Still, I hope she considers running for president as an independent because the RNC would make certain her candidacy never got past an announcement. Their loss, America's gain.

    The people Reid refers to that have lost their medical insurance due to Obamacare, e.g. cancer victim Julie Boonstra, are definitely not lying. Fossilized Harry Reid is not only being (surprise!) harshly insensitive but slandering them and setting himself and, more importantly, his political party up for a huge blow back. I assume Reid is counting on the leftmedia to carry his water, ignore his slander and definitely ignore the victims of Obamacare. Fox News should make Julie Boonstra a household name and thus show Reid and the Democrats for the callous, insensitive, totalitarian thugs they are.
  • ARIZONA GOVERNOR VETOES RELIGIOUS FREEDOM BILL

    Jim Scott to markomalley
    Jan Brewer ceased being anything close to conservative a long time ago. Even so, I've read that the Bill was written in a way that made it risky to sign as it would give Muslims the right to deny all kinds of services to 'infidels' (non-Muslims). If so, I can understand why Brewer didn't sign it.

    However, the leftmedia will, as always, play this a huge victory for 'gay rights' while ignoring the fact that citizen's religious convictions can be legally overridden without such a law (which needs to be carefully re-written and submitted to Governor Brewer.) Right now, it's a heads-they-win, tails-you-lose situation and not encouraging.

    The unseemly rush by opportunistic politicians to give homosexuals all kinds of special rights that trump others rights cannot end well for America.

    Jim Scott to nickcarraway
    Rubio mistakenly believed Krauhammer's assertion that backing 'immigration reform' (amnesty) would 'save' the GOP. Both were mistaken. The Republicans should propose securing the border first, with adequate funding, then worry about the rest of it - with no amnesty.

    Most Americans are not overly concerned with 'immigration reform'. This is a Democrat issue intended to (a) bash Republicans and, (b) gain Democrat voters by proposing amnesty (with lots of loopholes) for those already here. Rubio is permanently tainted and will likely never regain his 'star' status because the party base - conservatives - no longer trust him, for good reason.

    Although the specifics change, conservatives have known for a long time that the Washington D.C. power establishment is totally corrupt and that the establishment Republicans are just fine with expanding government power, as long as the GOP elites get their turn at running things.

    Despite the denials and attempts to portray the Tea Party as a fringe group that is irrelevant, it's obvious that the Tea Party is a threat to the GOP establishment and they are more than willing to see the corrupted IRS attack them any way possible to weaken the movement and discourage others from attempting to fight the GOP status quo, which works so well for the establishment elites.

    Have we had enough, yet? This should be the kind of 'news' that motivates Republican voters to 'throw the (establishment) bums out' (of congress) in November as they've long since abandoned any pretense of working for the people, much less defending conservative values.

    This wickedly satirical piece sums up the idiocy of the Obama administration telling employees that are seeing their hours cut or job disappear entirely due to the Obamacare debacle, that not working (and qualifying for taxpayer-funded Obamacare 'subsidies') is some kind of 'liberation', which is insulting rubbish.

    When a society starts believing that it's parasites are noble then the people still working and footing the bills (via taxes) are made to look like fools. If too many workers decide to become takers then who will pay the costs? Apparently, leftists never ask that question, assuming that there will always be enough 'rich' to pay for 'government' handouts. This doesn't end well for anyone.

    Excellent article that explains, in medical detail, why homosexual behavior (anal sex) is very risky, at best. Most of the leftists that cheer for 'gay rights' either have no idea what they are encouraging or do know and don't care because they want to support what they wish to believe are an 'oppressed minority', making the liberal supporter morally superior in their own eyes.

    Meanwhile, 'gay' rights are being used to trash natural heterosexual marriage by including a sexual perversion as equal in law (and inferred social acceptance) as natural sexual relations that marriage legalizes and religion approves in that context (marriage).

    Jim Scott to Teotwawki
    Insane verdict and sentence. This man's life is likely ruined. How do you come back to a normal life and a decent job from a six-year prison sentence?

    The judge totally ignored the fact that the drug pusher 'victim' was beating a woman and instead, lectured the young man (Carl Neale) who tried to stop him with his fists - not a weapon - and succeeded. Yes, the injuries to the pusher-assailant were horrific but that doesn't make Neale deserving of a six-year prison sentence. At the least, it should have been suspended.

    Frankly, the prosecution was way too zealous in this case. If this is what is in store for the U.S., I don't want to live here. This is why the left must be opposed and defeated before we get so far afield that we can't come back to sanity. The U.K. is already hopeless.

    Bryant Gumbel lost credibility a long time ago. He is not only a leftist that sneers at the country that made him a millionaire but sees everything through a racial prism.

Putin is a hard core communist and just the kind of guy leftists should embrace. Too bad that he is also an authoritarian who sees homosexual behavior for what it is - a perversion. Let the lefties figure it out but stop whining about it. I doubt many Olympic Games viewers are all that interested. Are you listening Bob Costas?

    Tammy Bruce puts the Obamacare dilemma in stark, easily understandable terms: it's a cancer on the body politic. The ACA is a Trojan Horse intended to make us slaves to the federal government who can then finish stripping us of our constitutional rights. It must be repealed.

    The congressional Republicans are wimps and statists but with enough public pressure, as with the amnesty scam that Boehner has now backed away from, they can be persuaded to do the right thing, even against their own wishes. A threat to one's job security has that effect. The American people need to be making that threat and, in effect, saying enough is enough. If they do not, we are truly finished.

Biden is just a dope.

    We all knew this was coming. As usual, the gay advocacy groups pretended that they wouldn't bother religious organizations. Noooo...of course not! "How dare you suggest such a thing! We just want our rights" yada, yada, yada.

    Churches based on the Word of God are an oasis of sanity so the gay advocacy groups have to co-opt them by forcing them to accept homosexual 'couples' as employees despite the fact that the religion the church-affiliated groups were founded on proscribes homosexual behavior.

    It's another in-your-face attempt by the gay lobby to force 'acceptance' of homosexual behavior on the nation by using every legal means available. The anti-discrimination laws are the perfect tool for these people to misuse in order to force religious organizations to accept what is a sin to them and to do it under the force of law. It's diabolical - and no surprise. I pray they lose.

    Jim Scott to grundle
    Jerry Seinfeld is right to be annoyed when the PC police start whining about the number of 'minorities' on his show that interviews comedians. It's another example of how the PC 'diversity' mania has turned into a litmus test for everything. I suspect Seinfeld is a liberal but apparently he is fed up with the PC police counting how many professional black, brown and female comics he interviews about their craft and then taking him to task if the number doesn't match some predetermined percentage.

    I wish Seinfeld would have turned the tables and asked if anyone does the diversity calculations on the racial makeup in the NBA. Of course not because that would be 'racist'. Such is the hypocrisy of the PC crowd.

    Jim Scott to RummyChick
    Powerful letter from Dylan Farrow.

    Of course it's too late to prosecute Woody Allen and the he-said/she-said aspect of the situation makes it impossible to do more than offer Dylan Farrow our sympathy. Well, there is one other thing we can do: to see Woody Allen as what he is: a child molester.

    He should be shunned by Hollywood but we know that won't happen as show business is rife with leftist hedonists that are loath to 'judge' a big star such as Woody Allen because many have their own dirty little secrets they carefully hide.

    Perhaps Woody Allen, at 78, will now go quietly into retirement and out of respect for Dylan Farrow, Hollywood will cease to give him awards.

    Sure they will.

    Typical liberal nonsense. Spit out something defamatory about conservatives, wait for the backlash, and then apologize. The Left will love it because it takes a shot at conservatives plus they love people who apologize. And since the message it out and Americans for the most part have a short attention span, the damage has been done.

    Excellent analysis! This is the leftist's game. A steady drumbeat of 'news' that portrays Republicans as racist, misogynists, elitist and generally terrible people who 'hate' the poor and anyone who isn't a rich WASP.

    Unfortunately, the mostly apathetic and politically-obtuse American voter allows the meme to seep into their conscious thoughts and eventually believe the lies - and vote Democrat. One hopes the stark reality of what voting for the 'historic' candidate brings will wake people up, but I won't hold my breath waiting for that to happen.

    "What I believe unites the people of this nation…is the notion that if you work hard and take responsibility, you can get ahead." (Barack Obama - 1/28/14)

    Isn't this the OPPOSITE of income equality?

    Obama starts with a true statement, and then twists the meaning into the exact opposite.

    Perhaps this is the hallmark of proficient lying?

    It's the old class warfare game based on the fantasy that the economy is finite and that those who have more have it at the expense of those with less. Obama uses this lie to claim that his economic plans have been successful but passes the blame for the fact that most Americans are not better off five years into Obama's presidency onto 'the rich' who are, somehow, taking all the money. Utter rubbish but then, it's Barack Obama talking and lies are his mother tongue.

  • The 'Kerry Plan': Palestinian capital in east Jerusalem, recognition of Jewish state

    Rational observers have long realized that the 'Palestinians' have no real interest in any 'two-state solution'. They have made it clear that their goal is to destroy the Israel and run the Jews that inhabit it out of the middle east. 'Negotiations' are nothing but stalling tactics to gain a little more time for each side and for the 'Palestinians' to coax Israel to give up more land and make an invasion easier.

    John Kerry is not going to change that reality no matter what kind of ultimatum he issues to each side. Israel cannot keep making concessions in exchange for empty promises from the 'Palestinians'. Netanyahu cannot simply cave to Kerry's plan but he can use it, as Friedman stated, as a framework. A telling quote from Netanyahu: “Israel does not have to agree with everything America presents.” Indeed, they do not - and with Obama directing this show, they should not.

  • If Obama Can Credit Michelle With Lowering Childhood Obesity, Then He can Get Away With Anything

    Obama is now infamous for lying unashamedly to the American people. Thus, his absurd claim regarding his wife reducing childhood obesity is hardly shocking in relation to all of his other bare-faced lies as he looks into the TV camera and grins. The man is incapable of truth and his out-of-control narcissism is becoming apparent even to those who once believed his rubbish about the oceans receding and the planet healing when he was elected back in 2008, which now seems a very long time ago.
  • Dem senators intervene in Hobby Lobby case, urge justices to deny ObamaCare exemption

    Jim Scott to Steely Tom
    This kind of attempted political intervention in the judicial process at the highest level, the Supreme Court, is outrageous but typical of the constitution-hating left that controls the Democrat party. Republican senators have a golden opportunity to excoriate the Democrats for this high-handed political interference in a Supreme Court case being reviewed but of course they are effectively silent, as usual, except when running for re-election as 'conservatives'. Then they'll tell us how terrible this kind of intervention by leftist Democrats really is but the 'political climate' wasn't right for them to express their opinion at the time.

    The reality is that the left has the GOP establishment scared to death of losing the 'women's vote' with the Democrat's 'war on women' meme and they fear that opposing the Democrat attempt to influence the Supreme Court on the contraception issue that Obamacare has brought will hurt their RINO candidates in November. This mindset ignores the fact that the establishment GOP is losing the conservative vote big-time for their timidity in just such situations as this.

  • Gay Activists Determined to Overthrow Florida's Traditional Marriage Laws

    Unfortunately, the same-sex marriage advocates will likely find a sympathetic liberal judge to entertain their attempt to overthrow Florida law that defines marriage the way every society has defined it for millenniums: as between a man and a woman. Using twisted interpretations of the Constitution to overthrow the people’s will is now SOP for leftists and especially the homosexual lobby. Sadly, they often win.

  • Poll: 99% Don't Care About Obama/Media Pet 2014 Issues

    This is good news for the GOP if they have the brains to take advantage of it. While Obama and his minions blabber about ‘income inequality’, immigration ‘reform’ (amnesty) and guns, the Republicans should be ignoring those issues - not responding to Obama - and talking about the way jobs evaporated under the Obama administration and how to get them back as well as the utter folly of the ACA and how true medical insurance reform can be accomplished once Obmaacare has been repealed. Ted Cruz could gain a lot of attention and support for bringing these issues to the fore while making Obama and the Democrats look as disconnected as they are when the drone on about the ‘income inequality’ few Americans really care about.

    What makes this kind of satire piece sardonic is the fact that we know Obama and the anti-freedom leftists that support him are absolutely capable of doing what the fake story outlines. Too often under Obama, what is satire today becomes the ugly truth, tomorrow.

  • GOP adopts changes to 2016 presidential primary process

    The 'early' primaries (held in February) should be abolished.

    There should not be 'open' primaries, either. A voter should be a registered member of the party to vote in that party's primary. That is logical and could help avoid the kind of mischief that too often occurs in 'open' primaries where Democrats vote in droves for the least conservative candidate on the party ballot. Yes, Republicans have been known to do something similar (vote for the most liberal Democrat running) but the majority of this kind of shenanigans occurs in the GOP 'open' primaries.

    It's another way the left sabotages conservative candidates along with the usual establishment games that have the same goal. It's how we get a McCain or even a Romney as the Republican candidate or, as I call them, the GOP-designated loser.
