About 7 weeks ago I declared here that I would never celebrate Labor Day, for reasons obvious and numerous. Suffice it to say that I believe that unions and the labor movement as composed today (and 117 years ago as well) represent the very opposite of the ideas that America was founded upon, and under which America has thrived for well over 200 years. Unions are corrupt, anti-democratic, anti-freedom, and anti-free market. They are violent and dangerous. They are a parasite on the economy. What’s more, the federal government is so thoroughly penetrated by labor forces that they seem to work to one end. They deserve many things, all of them bad. What they do not deserve is to be honored with a paid national holiday on a par with Memorial Day, Independence Day, Christmas, Thanksgiving, and Washington’s Birthday.
Now, all that said, the first Monday in September is a great location for a paid holiday. As they say, waste not, want not. so it is my intention now and evermore to use that day as Right to Work Day.
The Democrat Media breathlessly await Moses barack coming down from the mountaintop posh vacation paradise to deliver The Latest Super Duper Genius Plan To Create American Jobs. Now that he is “pivoting to jobs” for the fifth time or so, surely his laser-like focus and that towering intellect will produce the grandest economic recovery plan ever constructed – with a genius right up there with Einstein’s Theory of Relativity, combined with the tactical brilliance of Hannibal ransacking Italy, adding a dash of the compassion of Mother Teresa, and showcasing wit and aplomb that would have done W.C. Fields credit.
The Media-Left Complex is busy right this moment going through Rick Perry’s past with a fine-toothed comb. Things done or not done in 1989 are suddenly of the utmost importance. Chrissie Matthews from MSLSD stated the other day that Perry “better be squeaky clean.” I guess Perry doesn’t give you a thrill up your leg, eh, Chrissie? Sarah Palin has famously gotten the “peek into every private area you can find” treatment as well, even to the point of email archives being made public, both legally and illegally.
From the mouth of the utterly forgettable Congresswoman Maxine Waters (Marxist-CA) Saturday night in her district, to cheers from an audience that included SEIU-shirt-wearing individuals:
This is a tough game. You can’t be intimidated. You can’t be frightened. And as far as I’m concerned — the tea party can go straight to hell.
Big Burden for Big Shoulders
The President of the United States is, at every moment in time since June 6, 1944, the most important and powerful person in the world. He also bears the most responsibility. He is more than just the titular head of the most powerful nation the world has ever seen. In that office resides the personification of human liberty on earth, the beacon to hearts of all men who would be free, the guardian and protector of freedom and virtue.
The Democrats really are like 14-year old girls
in just about every bad way a person might mean that. They are colossally stupid; their values are twisted and amoral; their grasp of reality is tenuous and is seen not through the prism of facts and principles, but through the prism of what their peers consider cool; they believe with a fearsome tenacity, and based on no evidence whatsoever, that not only are they smarter than everybody else, they are always infallibly right, glowing beneath a halo of wisdom far beyond that of mortals; they believe fervently that the world is stacked against them, and that they never once have received a fair shake, nor have they ever gotten what they deserve. At least on that last point they are correct…….
The primary difference? Fourteen year old girls aren’t actually running the country, controlling its bureaucracies, and controlling nearly all the news media centers.
What is it about know-nothing, sanctimonious jerks like barack, that their one true area of competence seems to be demonstrating what fools they are? His maleficence and stunning lack of basic understanding are the chief causes of our current economic death spiral. Yet there he is, day after day after day, calling press conferences in which he blames everybody but himself, calling for new, even more destructive measures. Yap, yap, yap, yap, yap. Never anything new, just the same tired marxist platitudes and class warfare. Meanwhile, unemployment goes up, gas prices go up, the stock market goes down, America’s credit rating goes down, our standing in the world goes down.
But there he is again, operating his pie-hole with a license to kill by serial stupidity.
