I was checking the accuracy of a story I saw, and I came across this article. Very interesting and to the point. It was penned last November, but it is timeless as long as we have these occupy idiots occupying our space.

In various cities across the country, mobs of mostly young, mostly incoherent, often noisy and sometimes violent demonstrators are making themselves a major nuisance.
Meanwhile, many in the media are practically gushing over these “protesters,” and giving them the free publicity they crave for themselves and their cause — whatever that is, beyond venting their emotions on television.
Members of the mobs apparently believe that other people, who are working while they are out trashing the streets, should be forced to subsidize their college education — and apparently the President of the United States thinks so too.
But if these loud mouths’ inability to put together a coherent line of thought is any indication of their education, the taxpayers should demand their money back for having that money wasted on them for years in the public schools.
Sloppy words and sloppy thinking often go together, both in the mobs and in the media that are covering them. It is common, for example, to hear in the media how some “protesters” were arrested. But anyone who reads this column regularly knows that I protest against all sorts of things — and don’t get arrested.
The difference is that I don’t block traffic, join mobs sleeping overnight in parks or urinate in the street. If the media cannot distinguish between protesting and disturbing the peace, then their education may also have wasted a lot of taxpayers’ money.

President Obama and the Democratic National Committee (DNC) might have the makings of a new slogan for the 2012 election cycle, as the DNC announced that a design called “Urban Unity” will be the poster for the DNC convention in Charlotte, N.C.
(same shit, same tune, just gussied up in a new look)
This is how the nutbags on the left justify what they said and did to President Bush.
Bill Maher revisited a recurring theme of his show in his final New Rule tonight: conservatives actively disrespecting President Obama to his face. From Congressman Joe Wilson to Bill O’Reilly, Maher argued there is a consistent pattern emerging that Obama is being treated far worse by his opposition than any Democratic president of the past fifty years. And as he did exactly a year ago, Maher patiently acknowledged the numerous insults he threw at George W. Bush, but insisted upon the difference between someone like him or Sean Hannity attacking a sitting president and someone scolding him to his face.
Maher went down a list of his most insulting nicknames for Bush, before admitting he would have never called the former president “a rube” to his face, even if he was served the opportunity on a silver platter. But, Maher said, that’s not how conservatives have been with Obama, because of the multiple instances of people “going apeshit in his presence.” He pointed to presidents like Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton, and Lyndon Johnson for doing all the things Republicans hate Obama for, and yet those presidents were treated with “a modium of respect, at least to their faces.”

December 1934. Huey Long speaks passionately about income inequality and the wealthy in the United States. Even then, the democrats were pushing class warfare.
The Arrest Comes After #Occupiers Throw Grenades At White House Unmolested, And As #OccupyDC Continues To Illegally Occupy Park….
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Father Denis Wilde, OSA, associate director of Priests for Life, was among six people arrested today during a peaceful protest outside the White House.
Father Wilde was representing Priests for Life at an organized protest of the HHS contraception mandate that violates the First Amendment guarantee of freedom of religion. Priests for Life yesterday filed a lawsuit against the Obama Administration that seeks to permanently block the implementation of the mandate because it imposes clear violations of conscience upon any American citizens who morally object to abortion and contraception.
Father Wilde and the other protesters, including the Rev. Pat Mahoney of the Christian Defense Coalition, were cited for “Failure to obey a lawful order” as they knelt in prayer in front of the White House. They each paid a $100 fine and were released from custody.
“Occupy Wall Street protesters have been occupying federal property for months, but when we kneel in prayer, the police are called in and we are arrested,” Father Wilde said. “We knew that was the risk when we gathered today, and we will do it again regardless of the risk. What people of faith – of every faith – need to do now is stand with us.”
Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, said the New York-based organization remains committed to battling the HHS mandate because it forces Americans to become morally entangled in practices they find objectionable.
“As an organization of Catholic clergy, as a corporation that employs 60 people of various religious backgrounds, and as a ministry whose very purpose is to protect and promote the pro-life teaching about the specific practices at issue in the HHS mandate, we are particularly well-positioned to fight against this intrusion of conscience,” Father Pavone said.
Priests for Life is the nation’s largest Catholic pro-life organization dedicated to ending abortion and euthanasia. For more information, visit www.priestsforlife.org.
I am very angry with my fellow Catholics, both in the clergy and the laity, because they are the reason why we find ourselves in the horrible position that we are in now. I have been too aggravated to articulate this in a manner that I thought would be worthy of a blog post, but I’ve said it in a few places; first on my facebook page where I don’t bother to self censor, and then on blogs whose owners I respect, so I cleaned up the language some. Days have passed and I am still quite ticked off, and since I am no longer on a Blogger hosted site where I might get myself into trouble for cutting loose, I might as well share my thoughts here with all of you, because I can. Below are the various incarnations of what I have had to say about my fellow Catholics who have been “useful idiots” for Obama and only NOW have a problem with his evil despite the fact that there was ample warning that we would find ourselves exactly where we are now because Obama’s unholy, unconstitutional, and unconscionable mandate that forces people to violate their core values would never have come about without being aided and abetted by CATHOLICS.
But wait! There’s MORE
Don’t forget! On Tuesday please pick up a coffee or other beverage (or little pastry) at Starbucks to support their decision to follow local laws allowing defensive weapon carry. And pay with $2 bills if you have them to show you believe in the 2nd Amendment.

Valentine’s Day 2012….
Hard to believe but today is my wife and I’s 13th wedding anniversary! Yes, we actually got married in Texas (yes, dragged her from Iowa to Texas way back when) on Valentine’s Day. Had to wait at the courthouse for the judge to come down on his day off (this was a saturday) plus a witness to be found. Very quick ceremony for sure!
Then it was to San Antonio to spend our honeymoon.
And harder to believe, but we have 5 (five!) grandkids who are older than we have been married.
So, find a grandmother like I did, and marry her!
Obama budget proposes new security, airline fees And with him making sure the gas prices will continue going up until he is re-elected, traveling will become very expensive!
Sen. John Cornyn says Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. is “playing politics” with the nation’s anti-terrorism efforts and has compromised national security and put the lives of military personnel at risk.
The Texas Republican used a Saturday speech at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington to rail against the attorney general, calling him “hyper-partisan” and “dangerously ideological.”
“Holder has ignored genuine cases of voter intimidation, and he has failed to vigorously enforce the right of our men and women in uniform deployed abroad to be able to cast their ballot,” he said. “Is this the kind of behavior that instills complete confidence in the President of the United States?”
Mr. Cornyn, chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Campaign and a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, also took Mr. Holder — who was appointed by President Obama — to task for releasing previously classified memos on U.S. interrogation methods of suspected terrorist “simply because he didn’t agree with the Bush administration anti-terrorism policies.”
“Holder decided to provide sensitive information to our nation’s enemies and to give our allies fresh cause to worry about our trustworthiness,” he said at CPAC, one of the nation’s premier annual gatherings of conservative activists. “Playing politics with the war on terrorism is unacceptable.”

Explain if you can why Obama is NOT an islamic loving idiot…
Then explain why he wants to give almosat a BILLION DOLLARS of OUR money to a bunch of terrrorist extremists hell-bent on our destruction; animals who kill small children, rape donkeys and routinely offer their asses in the air 5 times a day to a child pedophile?
Where is Congress in this abomination?
And notice the part for an Incentive Fund! What, they get so much money for killing christians? For beheading those who oppose them? Just what incentive is our islamic president talking about?
The White House announced plans on Monday to help “Arab Spring” countries swept by revolutions with more than $800 million in economic aid, while maintaining U.S. military aid to Egypt.
In his annual budget message to Congress, President Barack Obama asked that military aid to Egypt be kept at the level of recent years — $1.3 billion — despite a crisis triggered by an Egyptian probe targeting American democracy activists.
The proposals are part of Obama’s budget request for fiscal year 2013, which begins October 1. His requests need the approval of Congress, where some lawmakers want to cut overseas spending to address U.S. budget shortfalls and are particularly angry at Egypt.
Obama proposed $51.6 billion in funding for the U.S. State Department and foreign aid overall, when $8.2 billion in assistance to war zones is included. The “core budget” for the category would increase by 1.6 percent, officials said.
Most of the economic aid for the Arab Spring countries — $770 million — would go to establish a new “Middle East and North Africa Incentive Fund,” the president said in his budget plan.
If you want to hear from someone who unmistakably understands the profound impact of America’s founding and believes there is still time for its citizens to take hold of its bureaucratic laden government and return it back to the will of it’s founding, then you must hear this speech from Daniel Hannan. You’ll appreciate America all the more afterwards, I assure you.
You can hear it at THE RIGHT SCOOP
The Defense Department may have to force soldiers, Marines or other members of the military out of the services for the first time since the aftermath of the Cold War to achieve the spending reductions in its budget proposal.
The Pentagon plans to cut 67,100 soldiers from active and reserve Army units and the Army National Guard in the five years starting Oct. 1, as well as 15,200 from the active and reserve ranks of the Marine Corps as part of an effort to save $487 billion over a decade, according to the budget sent to Congress today. The Navy and Air Force would lose fewer people — 8,600 and 1,700 respectively — because of their role in a strategic shift toward the Asia-Pacific region and the Middle East.
The military will first try buying out contracts or offering bonuses for people to leave, while working to keep those with valuable specialties such as cyber warfare and acquisitions, according to Travis Sharp, a fellow at the Center for a New American Security, a Washington policy group, who attended a Pentagon briefing for analysts last month.

From UN Watch via Big Peace
GENEVA, Feb. 13 – Gays threaten the continuation of the human race, Libya’s delegate told a planning meeting of the UN Human Rights Council today, reported the Geneva-based UN Watch monitoring group. It was the first appearance in the 47-nation body by the post-Gaddafi government, whose membership was restored in November following Libya’s suspension in March.
Protesting the council’s first panel discussion on discrimination and violence based on sexual orientation, scheduled for March 7th, Libya’s representative told the gathering of ambassadors today that LGBT topics “affect religion and the continuation and reproduction of the human race.” He added that, were it not for their suspension, Libya would have opposed the council’s June 2011 resolution on the topic.
“Yet today’s shocking homophobic outburst by the new Libyan government, together with the routine abuse of prisoners, underscores the serious questions we have about whether the new regime is genuinely committed to improving on the dark record of its predecessor, or to pandering to some of the hardline Islamists amidst its ranks,” said Neuer [executive director of UN Watch].
