Good to Have Friends in High Places

Does it send a tingle up your leg to know that you have a friend, Richard Trumpka, President of the AFL-CIO, in high places? No more filthy cronyism of Republicans corrupting the will of the American people. Labor has ascended to its rightful place of leading the Americah people and the fading Republic.

You are a union member aren’t you?

From the Civility Files

Dropkick Murphy suggests that “we have to take the bastards down” in a kinder, gentler America. Actually who knows what the original impetus was for writing the song. The band did release this statement about the release of the album song as a single:

“[We] would like to take a moment to acknowledge the struggles of the working people of Wisconsin and to pledge our support and solidarity by releasing the song ‘Take Em Down’ from our upcoming album. We think it’s appropriate at the moment and hope you like it… The Dropkick Murphys Stand With Wisconsin!!!!!”

“Bastard” seems rather uncouth, but don’t you just love phrases like “struggles of the working class” or words like “solidarity.” It does seem rather 1930s reactionary. Personally I would prefer that the teachers would get into 1776 reactionary speech like “We the People of the United States…..” That seems so much more…, well, unifying then union talk about whiney, educated, professional people angry about having to contribute more to their retirement and healthcare an amount still less than what most of the actual blue collar, working class taxpayers who pay their salaries.

Looking at teacher professional’s love affair with unions and language from the thirties I am not surprised that they are failing to properly educate our children.


Oh Stop, California!

Need more proof that parts of the People’s Republic of California are out of their collective, ever loving minds? This should do it for you, “SF May Ban Infant Circumcision.“ Do they ever stop out in LaLa Land?

The part of the story I love most is that when several Jewish organizations objected the intellectually inadequate mindless twit responsible for the proposed initiative countered “that under his proposed law, adults would be free to opt-in to circumcision, but infants would not be allowed to have the procedure until they reach 18.”

A little underlying frivolity to this story is the San Francisco Bay Area website publishing the last sentence above. An 18 year old infant? Really? Isn’t it amazing how liberals get overwrought about circumcision but think the old screwdriver to the base of the skull of a partial birth abortion is just fine?

How does that old “separation of church and state” red herring work in these circumstances? Will San Francisco rewrite 4,000 years of Jewish religious practice so that their collective empathy for infants allegedly in pain will not be offended? So many tantalizing unanswered questions. So many contradictions.

Here is the religious context:

Genesis 17 (King James Version)

10 This is my covenant, which ye shall keep, between me and you and thy seed after thee; Every man child among you shall be circumcised.

11 And ye shall circumcise the flesh of your foreskin; and it shall be a token of the covenant betwixt me and you.

12 And he that is eight days old shall be circumcised among you, every man child in your generations, he that is born in the house, or bought with money of any stranger, which is not of thy seed.

13 He that is born in thy house, and he that is bought with thy money, must needs be circumcised: and my covenant shall be in your flesh for an everlasting covenant.

14 And the uncircumcised man child whose flesh of his foreskin is not circumcised, that soul shall be cut off from his people; he hath broken my covenant.

The Last Word

“The fact that liberals support democracy in Egypt, but not in Iraq or Iran, can mean only one thing: Democracy in Egypt will be bad for the United States and its allies. (As long as we’re on the subject, liberals also opposed democracy in Russia, East Germany, Czechoslovakia, Yugoslavia and all the Soviet satellite states, China, Vietnam, North Korea, Cuba, Grenada, Nicaragua and Minnesota.) Democrats are all for meddling in other countries — but only provided a change of regime will harm U.S. national security interests. Time and again, Democrats’ fecklessness has emboldened America’s enemies and terrified its allies, which I believe was the actual slogan of the State Department under Jimmy Carter: ‘Emboldening America’s enemies, and terrifying her allies, since 1976.’ For 50 years, Democrats have harbored traitors, lost wars, lost continents to communism, hobnobbed with the nation’s enemies, attacked America’s allies, and counseled retreat and surrender. Or as they call it, ‘foreign policy.’ As Joe McCarthy once said, if liberals were merely stupid, the laws of probability would dictate that at least some of their decisions would serve America’s interests.” —columnist Ann Coulter

Take note of the word in red above;  feck·less/ˈfeklis/Adjective

1. (of a person) Lacking in efficiency or vitality.
2. Unthinking and irresponsible. 

I was banned from the discussion forums at FrontPage Magazine because I used the word feckless – go figure.  You would think that a serious intellectual, like David Horowitz, would hire a moderator with at least a rudimentary command of the English language.  So, here I am with the three or four people who semi-regularly follow this blog.  Anyone seen the Duck lately?

Ann Coulter is a regular contributor to FrontPage Magazine. Ann Coulter uses the word “feckless.”   That would certainly seem to legitamize Big Bubba’s use of the word.

If you do not subscribe you really should.


Bush and the Marine Corps Band

One thing about President Bush, he is a real person full of joie de vivre and good cheer. You can tell from President Bush’s face he was having a ball.  Actually his “conducting” technique was quite good until towards the end he seems to get somewhat carried away.

I can personally attest to the thrill of what President Bush experienced. Big Bubba experienced it as well. My father was the First sergeant of the 564thAir Force Band, Langley Field, Virginia. One time the band gave a concert inside the huge building housing a wind tunnel at Langley Field. During the concert I was brought on the stage to “conduct” the band. Despite my tender age at the time, four years old at the most, it was a thrill that I have never forgotten.

Here is a “lost page” floating around the internet with pictures of military bands my father was assigned to during his career.

Comments From Leading Authority on Civility in the House of Representatives

Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.), a leading authoruty on civility and decorum in the House posed a question to Speaker Boehner if “disparaging” remarks, like use of the term Obamacare, should be allowed on the House floor? Who would have ever thought that the President would not want to be associated with the centerpiece of his legislative accomplishments.

Am I the only one to notice that civility on the House floor is a strictly one way street when it comes to the pseudo intellectual progressive liberal demoracists mindless twits?

Mark Alexander on the Ronald Reagan Centennial

Everyone who believes in our Consttutional government as formed by the Founding Fathers should subscibe to the publicatioins of The Patriot Post – Voice of Essential Liberty. Mark Alexander, publisher, wrote “The Reagan Centennial” in honor of Ronald Reagan’s 100th birthday. Annoy pseudo intellectual progressive liberal mindless twits, throughout the land,by constant reference to them that this is Reagan’s Centennial year, and, without a doubt, he was the best President of the previous century.
