The leftists have invented a False Racial Controversy out of some comments made by Cliven Bundy, the famous Nevada Rancher. It’s totally bogus, but, just as expected, weak minded republicans are denouncing Bundy, because this is what the lefties tell them to do. We really need to get rid of these politicians, and unfortunately that seems to include Rand Paul. It has now become racist to say that the stupid government policies are are screwing up the lives of various minority people.
Click THIS, or the pic to hear what Cliven Bundy really said: that for Blacks, living on government subsidies is no more freedom than when they were picking cotton down South, and is possibly worse, due to destruction of the family structure. He also gives some interesting comments on immigration. Of course some buzz words are there, and no brainless acolyte of political correctness could pass through them to hear the real message. In addition, the destruction of family is high on the leftist agenda.
The lamestream media managed some editing, so that the Republicans would denounce Bundy as fast as Pavlov’s dogs salivated. They never fail to disappoint.
UPDATE: Rip Curl at Truth Revolt has provided text and a bit of commentary on the media editing hack job of Cliven Bundy. The NYT has acted similarly to NBC, editing the 911 call by George Zimmerman, to smear him as a racist. This is defamation.
The problem always has been how to keep minorities in the college system after freshman year. More minority students have trouble with being raised up, and attending school in ‘war zones’, and missing out on the educational material necessary to succeed in college.
The usual stupid educator tricks involve closing the best urban schools (as Obama did in Washington DC), giving affirmative action admissions to minorities in college, and dumbing down the curriculum to make up for declining quality of early education. The latter two jobs being eagerly pursued at Western Washington University, which is openly looking for more ways to make the school “less white”. It’s a recipe for American failure, just as the lefties intended.
Universities would have naturally become less White, without any affirmative action or dumbing down of curriculum, had the left not had such strong programs of 1) encouraging people not to work for a living, and 2) aborting minority babies at rates so much higher than whites.
Can we name a single human endeavor that the lefties have not screwed up?
Apparently the IRS has begun the practice of seizing the tax returns of citizens in order to satisfy supposed debts of their parents to the government. It seems that they are not required to supply proof of said debt, nor are they giving effective prior notice before taking the money.
Tax payers now have another reason to attempt to pay only what is owed on their taxes so that no return is due after they file.
From the Washington Post comes a story of a woman whose tax return mysteriously disappeared into the bowels of the IRS. When she sought explanation, she was told that a social security overpayment (stemming from the death of her father) to her now-deceased mother was being collected from her, as the one of her remaining siblings who 1) has an income, and 2, could be located.
This woman, Mary Grice was able to file suit, in order to find out what was going on. It seems that the IRS initially seized the entire $4,462 tax returns, but after the Washington Post inquired about the case, some of this was returned, as the supposed debt was only for $2,996 dollars. Grice wants all of the money back, because she is not the one who incurred the supposed debt.
Get ready for some surprises from the IRS if anyone in your family has overdrawn government benefits. It seems that this new practice was authorized by the farm bill, 110th Congress Public Law 246, extending the ability to collect debts beyond. 10 years. In 2011, the Treasury dept started grabbing this money more agressively, and this year has collected $75 million on debts, which are more than 10 years old, and stopped a total of $1.9 billion from tax refunds.
Reid Cherlin has bailed from his job as an assistant press secretary and is making his bucks by dishing on work life with the Obamas. He repeats what we’ve been hearing for years, that Michelle is not loving the constraints of First Lady-ism, and that this adversely affects those who service her day to day needs in the East wing of the White House.
A Michelle-administration spokesperson has defended her thusly: “From day one, the First Lady ambitiously set out to make a measurable impact on the lives of everyday American families. The First Lady is laser-focused on moving the needle wherever and whenever possible.”
Work has become “moving the needle”.
Dear White House spokes-BOT: please understand just how stupid this sounds to the people in this country who produce things, and perform useful services. Please also understand that the rest of the world is laughing at the community organizers who think that “moving the needle” is a useful occupation.
Vladimir Putin has at least 3 more years of space in which to rebuild the Soviet Union, generated by the brain vacuum in Washington DC.
Yes, it is really the Polar Kotex, because the ancient one, Pharmer’s Papa, declared it to be so…… mocking the new term used by the acolytes of the man made climate change religion, (which supplanted the global warming religion).
Oh what the Titanic outcropping of the Polar Kotex has done to our government, binding it up in that protective white fluff and causing closure of federal services in Washington DC, as announced today on opm.gov .
Just for today Pharmer feels more protected and secure 😉
Barrie.. you since have sicced the IRS on D’Souza for letting that story out, and for his other criticisms of your hypocritical self.
Your latest initiative to do something for Black American’s whose unemployment problem has skyrocketed under your administration, using everyone else’s money, is going to earn you more richly deserved disrespect .. DOUBLY so if it is as ineffective as your Obamacare program.
The problem is…….. we can’t decide who is more lame, you, or the currently stupid Republican establishment, which is going along for the ride with you.
Obama’s recently sold off Government Motors has a new CEO, Mary Barra, and because she’s a female, hiring her was a fiscally responsible thing to do. As you know, the Obama administration has been hiring women at deep discounts at least since the time of his first presidential campaign.
There has been a persistent rhetoric from Obama concerning the pay disparity between men and women, but Government Motors Company has hired Ms. Barra at 48% of the salary which had been paid to departing Dan Akerson (who had no prior experience in the automotive field). Barra’s total compensation is $4.4 million vs Akerson’s $9 million pay package. Their base salaries are $1.6 million and $1.7 million respectively.
As an outside senior adviser, Akerson will continue to outpace the new CEO, with a compensation package of $4.68 million.
Pay is said to be based on tenure and experience, but the 33 years spent by Ms. Barra at GM is not enough to compensate in this Obama-nation for the fact that she has ovaries instead of testicles.
Apparently Barra’s prior total compensation package was $4.94 million when she was VP of global product development. It seems that her “promotion” has actually gotten her a salary cut.
As is the case with so many other little details, the Obama Regime had no inkling of this as they hosted CEO Mary Barra, a shining example of income disparity, while Obama decried the practice during State of the Union address.
The man behind the Taking Sense Away, TSA blog on WordPress decided to reveal himself to the world, publishing yesterday in the Politico.
Jason Edward Harrington is working on a novel based upon his experiences as a TSA employee (paid to grope passengers at airports). Hopefully the remaining, capitalist vestige of the economic system will reward his efforts. Up to this time he’s been exposing the antics and inside stories of the TSA anonymously, first as an employee, working through college, then from the outside while in graduate school.
A portion of what news stories have carried about the workings of the TSA has come from Harrington’s blog. Be sure to take a look, if you haven’t seen it already. The January 30 entry will lead you to his piece at the Politico, entitled: Dear America, I Saw You Naked, and yes we were laughing. Confessions of an ex-TSA agent.
“If it falls to your lot to be a street sweeper, sweep streets like Michelangelo painted pictures, sweep streets like Beethoven composed music … Sweep streets like Shakespeare wrote poetry. Sweep streets so well that all the host of heaven and earth will have to pause and say: Here lived a great street sweeper who swept his job well.” – Martin Luther King
