Man o man SO MUCH to blog about today. I heard something incredibly stupid from the president, remeniscent of Orwellian doublespeak, I am watching currently a recorded presentation of Glenn Beck's "Founding Fridays" segment of his show, and am learning so much more about history that's not in the text books that I could very well go to wherever they write these things, and beat someone over the head for not including them, and for outright destroying the most important weapon in the war for freedom and liberty: Information!
This will likely be a long post, so those with short attention spans (*cough*liberals*cough) should really consider reading Dick and Jane instead. Or if that's too much for you, might I suggest Dr. Seuss..
Anyhow, to the news!
Item One: Apparently an Arizona Supervisor doesn't even know that her state is on the border. Via Hot Air:
There was an odd moment during the debate when Supervisor Peggy West stood up and seemed to be confused about her geography. “If this was Texas, which is a state that is directly on the border with Mexico, and they were calling for a measure like this saying that they had a major issue with undocumented people flooding their borders, I would have to look twice at this. But this is a state that is a ways removed from the border,” West said during debate…
While speaking at the meeting, West did go on to talk about National Guard troops on the border in Arizona. West points to that as she tells us that she simply misspoke…
West claims that the point she was trying to make is that because Texas has a much larger border with Mexico, she might feel differently about such a law in that state. “Had Texas come out with the legislation, having the largest border, I think that I would be more receptive to the fact that there was a problem. But having it be Arizona, having it be the second largest boarder and knowing there are troops on the border in Arizona, it didn’t seem to me that this legislation was particularly necessary at this moment in time,” West said.
Can you even BELIEVE that she said that? Just to make sure the world hadn't turned upside down, I had to look up a map of the United States to make sure that Arizona hadn't been moved without me knowing. Fortunately, it hadn't. Still, someone might want to tell this moonbat to look at a damned map every once in a while.
Item 2: President Obama on radio this morning actually had the hugeness of balls to say that cutting deficit spending will make the deficit expand! What?!
Via Talk Radio and Washington Post:
But as he meets with the Group of 8 in a rural resort town north of here, Obama is appealing to European leaders not to trim back public spending in the midst of a growing debt crisis on the continent.
The radio version of his words, a direct sound bite, said something about how cutting spending would somehow cause the Europeans' deficits to expand anyway.
Um...How? How will NOT spending money result in SPENDING OF MONEY!? Good God this president makes my head hurt!
Item 3 (possibly the most important item). So it turns out that there were black people back in 1789. Huh. Who knew? Well, apparently those in charge of writing our textbooks for schools knew and decided not to tell anyone. What's more, they decided to lie and say that everyone was a Negro hating racist ever since the founding of this country, even though they have newspapers and history books FROM THAT TIME PERIOD that not only mention these guys, but give the ones who fought in the Revolution FULL MILITARY HONORS. Huh. What bigoted assholes.
Item 4: I have decided that whenever I have the money to take a trip to another state, one of those states must be Virginia, capital state of the now defunct Confederacy. Or, as they called themselves in the Confederate Constitution, the SLAVEHOLDING Confederate States of America. That's right, I said SLAVE HOLDING. All those morons who say the Confederacy was fighting for states rights are pretty much liars, since it says IN THE CONSTITUTION that to join the Confederacy you must allow slavery. Wow. I thought it was about States Rights. Wouldn't that mean that the state would be the one to choose? Yeah, I think it would. Funny how those "rights" things work, ain't it?
And that's just the tip of the iceberg. More to come in future posts. Please tape your heads together to keep the brain matter inside in the event of a cranial explosion.
