The Doorbell. Something to ponder.

From the powerline blog:


Quote of the day – Mort Zuckerman

Many voters who supported him are no longer elated by the historic novelty of his candidacy and presidency. They hoped for a president who would be effective. Remember “Yes We Can”? Now many of his sharpest critics are his former supporters. Witness Bill Broyles, a one-time admirer who recently wrote in Newsweek that “Americans aren’t inspired by well-meaning weakness.” The president who first inspired with great speeches on red and blue America now seems to lack the ability to communicate any sense of resolve for a program, or any realization of the urgency of what might befall us. The teleprompter he almost always uses symbolizes and compounds his emotional distance from his audience.  Mort Zuckerman/WSJ

More ‘do-gooders-doin’-stupid’ in Britain

After the riots and looting we’ve seen in London of late, I find this pretty astounding.  The story was featured on Cam & Company tonight.

There are going to be 125,000 school kids getting free tickets to go to the 2012 London Olympics but they will not be allowed to watch the shooting events. Not even shooting practice for you, kiddies.

Danny Bryan, founder of Communities Against Gun and Knife Crime said: “I agree with Boris [the mayor of London]. It is good kids should enjoy the Games but there’s no way we should glorify guns.”

So with that argument, are they glorifying the javelin, the shot or the discus? Any of those can be lethal weapons and all are Olympic events. For cryin’ out loud, you could beat someone over the head with a hurdle or a block, for that matter.

What do they think they are protecting these kids from? It’s okay to see Londoners break windows, steal flat screen tv’s and throw rocks at the unarmed police but not okay to watch people shoot at targets. And it goes without saying, but I’ll say it anyway – these kids have seen much worse on tv, in video games and in movies. They have seen much worse “glorifying guns” than they can ever absorb at an Olympic shooting event.

After the looting and riots we have just seen in London, how do these ‘do-gooders-doin’-stupid’ justify this – - seriously?

You know, I love the Brits but sometimes they say and do things that just make no sense.

This came in my email – I don’t watch network news. But this is pretty astounding.


Quote of the day – Quin Hillyer

The truth is, it’s a sad day in America when Joe Biden’s blarney would be a marked improvement in Oval Office leadership.

How to get 10 million votes in two easy steps

Obama has just assured the democrats (and why we still call them democrats, is beyond me) a whole new voting bloc:

“Having failed in the legislative process, the Obama administration has simply decided to usurp Congress’s constitutional authority and implement an amnesty program for millions of illegal aliens,” FAIR President Dan Stein said. “This step by the White House amounts to a complete abrogation of the president’s duty to enforce the laws of the land and a huge breach of the public trust. … In essence, the administration has declared that U.S. immigration is now virtually unlimited to anyone willing to try to enter — and only those who commit violent felonies after arrival are subject to enforcement.”

I won’t call them democrats anymore. They are now the American Marxist Party (Formerly Known as Democrats.)
His next move will be to issue them voting rights and mark my words, he will do so before the next election.

Lloyd Marcus at American Thinker

Folks, I believe human beings are responsible for their behavior.  However, as America’s first black president, fair or unfair, Obama’s presidency comes with enormous responsibility in terms of its influence on black youths.  This is why it is so unfortunate that American black youths’ ultimate role model is a characterless, race-baiting political hack.

While I am not saying president Obama is responsible for the epidemic of black youth flash-mob attacks on whites around our country, his race-baiting has to be a contributing factor.  (Read more)

Lloyd really makes several valid points in this blog.  The only point he didn’t really touch on is the one I’ve mentioned here before and that Maxine (we’ll socialize your oil companies) Waters brought up in Michigan this week: lack of employment for minorities.

The fact that nothing has been done to curb the unemployment rate among Black males, especially young Black males, has had to have had a profound effect on that community. When people are working, young people especially, they have a lot less time to engage in mischief and crime.

I find it really telling too, that when these flash mob videos are shown on television or written about in the media, there is virtually NO mention that these are black kids overrunning and clearing the shelves in stores like 7-11.  It’s as though the media is afraid to admit the obvious – like the emperor has no clothes.

On the one hand the Black community has been totally disaffected by the left’s do-good, nannyism that has destroyed their families for the last 50 years, while at the same time they are marginalized by the highest rate of unemployment and empowered by the first Black president to do whatever they choose to in the name of pay-back for misrepresented racism.

The leadership and example that these children need is not coming from their president – the first place it should be coming from. But it could be coming from the Lloyd Marcus’, Allen Wests, Thomas Sowells of the world, if only these kids would pay attention to the message.


Oh – this is rich! Fairey beat up by fellow travelers!

Shepard Fairey

Funny, no mention in the story of the lawsuit against him by the AP for lifting their photo and making this poster. No mention of erasing his computer of said photo. No mention of his arrest in Boston for defacing a building with his street graffiti.

I gotta wonder how he likes all the graffiti on his monument.

But he’s not marching to the tune that these particular leftists expect him to, so he gets beat up! This is too funny, as far as I’m concerned.
