Obama administration bigwigs are falling all over themselves to denounce, condemn, lament, and apologize for the unfortunate behavior of a few Marines in Afghanistan ….
Give me a break. More importantly, give our troops a break.
…. there are several people running for the Republican presidential nomination. Maybe one of them could say a good word about our troops?

Muslims killed in America “in revenge” for the religiously-motivated mass murder of 2,997 innocent people on 9/11: 1 in ten years.
Americans killed in Afghanistan “in revenge” for the accidental burning of a few Qurans: 4 in the first week.
Instead of coddling Muslim fanatics like children, our leaders should be telling them to grow up.
We should stop using Muslims’ self-chosen word – “Islamophobia” – by which they paint themselves into a corner of being feared: it destroys communication. Instead of such a divisive term, we should insert a more approachable and factual word that preserves opportunities for bridge-building and learning: “Islamonausea.” This does not render communication impossible, but enables visitors to our Western cultures to notice aspects of their behavior that make us sick.
Or how about Infidelophobia?
Since I posted this one yesterday morning, there have been over 30,000 virtual krans burnt. (and no, I ain’t claimin’ credit, except for about 120 of them maybe.) In case you missed it, heretis again:

And mind you – this winter, the dark in Europe is deadly cold.
The EU is isolating itself economically from the rest of the world at time when it can ill afford to do so in the increasingly vain belief that the rest of the world still believes in the ManBearPig religion of Anthropogenic Global Warming.
The Left have always attached noble and lofty adjectives to their political aims, taking the moral high ground, leading by example are popular chants from the comrades of socialism, environmentalism and the easily manipulated eco sheep of the Occupy movement.
All the talk of moral high ground and leading way to a brave new Green world are just smokescreens to force the environmental legislation through at any price, with the secondary vain hope that there might be other ecomentalist simpletons in power elsewhere who also want to de-industrialise their societies, commit economic suicide and embrace the misery and drudge of the Green Agrarian Society.
Any new source of energy that damages the chances of the politically correct wind and solar generation is immediately attacked, vilified and a new Green movie documentary of lies and half truths launched, just look at the hysteria about fracking and the Gasland propaganda movie. The Canadian tar sands have come in for the same treatment of lies and hysteria, warming alarmist scientist James Hansen “When the development of the tar sands continues, then it means “game over for the climate“, this is a view endorsed by another warming alarmist scientist Peter “Fakegate” Gleick.
Something about being judged by the company you keep would seem appropriate.
People with sound science on their side do not need to forge documents to validate their arguments or make the other side look bad. Also, people who are so desperate as to forge documents in an attempt to frame their rivals are clearly not above forging scientific data, studies and facts to similarly further their cause.
This week, a 1979 Palm Beach Post article resurfaced in which Steven Schneider, who for the past 30 years was one of the most prominent global warming alarmists, claimed the west Antarctic ice sheet could melt before the year 2000 and inundate American coastlines with up to 25 feet of sea level rise. Obviously, the west Antarctic ice sheet was not raptured away last century, and New Yorkers can still drive rather than swim to work.
…. it’s not that nasty old anthropogenic (man-made) CO2 that certain warmers have been blithering about for decades, it’s the variation of the tilt of the Earth’s axis, something I remember hearing about in grade school about 50 years ago, in pre-Goracle times when kids were taught actual science and didn’t major in Greentard Brainwashing 101.
Against all global warmzy odds:
» Survival is black and white as penguins bounce back
RESEARCHERS say it is remarkable that a population of king penguins on the brink of extinction has not only recovered but expanded ….
~~ via The Daily Bayonet: Pesky Penguins
…. for King Penguins, life was pretty much expected to be over as they moved ‘inexorably’ toward extinction caused by, you guessed it, global warming
…. That prediction was made way back in 2008, so it’d be fair to expect King Penguins to be harder to find in 2012, right?
But now another global warming calamity claim is found to be all alarm and no science. Either that or Gaia doesn’t need to be saved.
It’s like there’s a trend, or something.
» Documents: PETA kills more than 95 percent of pets in its care
This is old news, unless of course you haven’t heard – PETA is not about animals, it’s all about humans and the subjugation thereof.
…. since 1998 PETA has killed more than 27,000 animals at its headquarters in Norfolk, VA.
In a February 16 statement, the Center said PETA killed 1,911 cats and dogs last year, finding homes for only 24 pets.
Whip out your calculator and do the math: In only one year, in only one PETA HQ, with a budget of $37 million – PETA saved 24 out of 1935 animals in their care – That’s less than 2%.
Socialists work for death via economic starvation. Greenies work for death via denial of technology. Animal-Righters work for death in avoiding any contact with
other species food ….
My conclusion is that lefties are suicidal. And they need help.
And if you think you took that statement the wrong way, perhaps you didn’t.
Socialism: Rational or not, Greece’s street riots and emigration rates signify one thing: Socialism offers very little to the young. So why is the EU’s $172 billion bailout geared toward saving so much of the failed socialist system?
Why indeed. The EU itself is a socialist experiment. Socialism is at the root of the Grecian rot. Since the Europeans have bound themselves together economically, none can survive the fall of a single member.
All the European eggs are in the same socialist basket.
As Europe prepares to deliver a historic $172 billion bailout to Greece in a deal announced Monday, it’s pretty much a given that the austerity conditions required, in the absence of a true free market, will hit youth hardest. Athens will be trashed by another youth rampage, as many youths blame the pain on something other than Greece’s deeply rooted socialism.
A bigger effect will come from Greeks who do recognize reality. They won’t riot. They’ll leave, voting with their feet just as Eastern Europe’s youth once did.
It’s not just Greece, but also every EU state with institutionalized socialism — where high government spending seeks to create a warm blanket insulating everyone from risk, but instead has led to bankruptcy.
Data on Europe’s exodus are scarce, but enough credible reports recognize that human capital is flowing from indebted socialist states to vibrant free-market states. Chile, Canada, Australia and Hong Kong are seeing inflow. That’s directly tied to the fact that free-market states are the most youth-friendly.
Did you notice that list of free-market states did not include Obama’s fundamentally transformed U.S. ? Even a 6 year old has memories of a time in which America was the free-market state.
Obama said his new motor vehicle fuel standard regulations were so tough that someday they would somehow enable American families to save $8,000 at the pump “over time.”
True Enough, I reckon.
He ain’t lying there – ‘over time‘ American families won’t be spending any money at all on gas. ‘Over time‘ means ‘after the Obama second term‘, which references that point in the future when American families won’t have the means of purchasing gas, nor the need … with no jobs to go to.
Obama cited the Miami-Dade Museum which, he said, has a windmill that by itself on a typical day can generate up to 10% of the energy needs of one local home. (The president’s math would seem to suggest the need for about 10 wind turbines to power every house, which could make for crowded neighborhoods.)
… and smelly neighborhoods, with all the dead birds littering the streets and all, ya know.
…. then Obama got to the exciting new part of his energy speech.
“We’re making new investments,” he said, “in the development of gasoline and diesel and jet fuel that’s actually made from a plant-like substance — algae. You’ve got a bunch of algae out here, right?” …. “Believe it or not, we could replace up to 17% of the oil we import for transportation with this fuel that we can grow right here in the United States.”
Then Obama added, in at least one indisputable presidential observation, “If we can figure out how to make energy out of that, we’ll be doing all right.”
And the lefties swooned. It occurs not, to them, that it might be a good idea to figure it out before we dump all our life-supporting technologies.
Folks, this is serious. The left is going to kill us, starve us, freeze us or at least make us want to kill ourselves just to escape the embarrassment of being of the same species.
It’s been long enough. We’ve tolerated too much already.
What …. are we still waiting for?
“They’re now gifts that a benign king graciously showers upon his subjects.”
…. Danica Patrick. For some reason, Michelle Fields of the Daily Caller sought the views of the NASCAR driver and Sports Illustrated swimwear model about “the Obama administration’s dictate that religious employers provide health-care plans that cover contraceptives.” Miss Patrick, a practicing Catholic, gave the perfect citizen’s response for the Age of Obama:
“I leave it up to the government to make good decisions for Americans.”
So the ability to fill out a swimsuit and drive a race car is, obviously, no indication of intelligence.
The left is constantly on the prowl for the oppressed, even if the new oppressed are men who want to use the ladies room. And the oppressed can never be denied anything they want, instead there is an affirmative obligation on the entitled people who are not confused about which bathroom they want to use, to prove that they are granting every possible privilege and courtesy to the bewildered and confused.
Very little of this has to do with the kind of rights that were fought for from Appomattox to Selma. Instead individual freedom and equality before the law has been twisted to justify a state of legal inequality and the deprivation of individual freedoms. Rather than a color-blind society, we have achieved a color conscious society in which everyone knows their place on the great ladder of diversity.
Those who make their living demonizing so-called “assault weapons,” as “weapons of war, with no place in our neighborhoods,” face a number of serious logic problems in making their case. High up on the list of those logic problems is the fact that they very often defend the possession and use (“in our neighborhoods”) of these very same “weapons of war” by the police
» Congratulations, President Obama and the No-Drill Democrats: Gas Prices Top $5 In L.A.!
Take a guess who the leftists and their idiot cousins in media will blame for skyrocketing gas prices: (a) “speculators”, (b) “greedy oil companies”, (c) “the rich”, or (d) Bush. Not President Obama. Not his EPA. Not his Department of Interior. Not the brutal amount of taxes on each gallon of gas (about a dollar a gallon in total taxes versus two cents a gallon in profit for the “greedy oil companies”).
…. Obama’s done exactly what he said he’d do.
He’s shut down drilling on public lands, slow-rolled permit approvals, continued his de facto (and illegal) drilling moratorium in the gulf, and wasted billions on crony “green energy programs”.
Would someone tell Rep. Renee Elmers about this? She believes there’s no way that something that is happening could happen.
