Thought For Today – March 17, 2014

Food For Thought – By Junius P. Long If you can get arrested for hunting or fishing without a license, but not for being in the country illegally …you might live in a country founded by geniuses but run by idiots. If you have to get your parents’ permission to go on a field trip or take an aspirin in school, but not to get an abortion … you might live in a country founded by geniuses but run by idiots. If the only school curriculum allowed to explain how we got here is evolution, but the government stops a $15 … Continue reading

Hooray For The Red, White, Blue And Green !

Silly me. Thinking that the Boston St. Patrick’s Day Parade was actually held on St. Patrick’s Day, and not the day before, I waited to see what the decision was going to be concerning allowing openly queer veterans to march in the parade. But now I can report the following : THE FAGS LOST ONE !!  From an earlier report : With a vow to “never say die,” Mayor Martin J. Walsh said he’ll make another push to let a gay veterans group openly march in the St. Patrick’s Day Parade, just days before the pipe and drum bands roll into South Boston. “I don’t give … Continue reading

Quit Your Day Job. You’re Covered !

Marking the third anniversary of Obamacare’s passage, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said the health care law fulfills the promises of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness by liberating workers from their place of employment and allowing them to pursue careers in the arts. “And just think that you could be a photographer or writer,” Pelosi said. Pelosi often has praised Obamacare in this way, saying it enables Americans to quit their jobs and become artists. In 2010, she was famously quoted : “We see it as an entrepreneurial bill. A bill that says to someone, if you want to … Continue reading

Bill Whittle: Gulliver Unbound

  Bill talks about the Left’s hamstringing of America’s ability and the sleeping giant that awaits. “the power of progress has been removed by the progressives…” Fortunately American ingenuity, despite the left’s policies, has forged ahead and provided a bulwark against energy hostage taking.  Imagine the USA without the moronic policies of the left. I am looking forward to the asskicking this fall, the hobbling of obama, the purging of the left, the election of a constitutionalist president in 2016, and a reawakening of American ingenuity beginning in 2017. Call me optimistic. but I think Americans are tired of the … Continue reading

Harry Reid Gone Completely Bonkers?

From The Examiner: Harry Reid Blames Koch Brothers for Stalled Ukraine Aid, Implies GOP Unpatriotic It seems the Koch brothers live rent-free in Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid‘s head.  On Thursday, the Nevada Democrat blamed the Koch brothers for stalled legislation intended to help Ukraine, The Hill reported.  He also implied Republicans are unpatriotic. “It’s hard for me to comprehend how with a clear conscience they could say, ‘Ukrainians, we probably can’t help you because we’re trying to protect the Koch brothers,’” he said. “And not only that, they’re saying to the American people that protecting the Koch brothers is … Continue reading

Page 930 of Obama’s Budget Has This Tidbit

From Daniel Greenfield at Front Page Mag: The Environmentalist Eugenics of the Left Pick up a copy of Obama’s $3.9 trillion budget and there among the TSA fee hikes, Medicare payment cuts and the $400 million for the DHS to fight global warming is a curious little item. On Page 930 of the budget that never ends is $575 million for “family planning/reproductive health” worldwide especially in “areas where population growth threatens biodiversity or endangered species.” The idea that the way to protect insects, fish and animals is by preventing human beings from having children is part of an approach known … Continue reading

In 2015 Chicago faces a looming financial disaster with a municipal pension system that is in worse shape than that of any other major U.S. city. Chicago is under the gun … Continue reading

SC Sheriff Says Not on My Watch

From Breitbart: Reacting to a Democrat-led proposal to repeal “stand your ground” in South Carolina, Spartanburg County Sheriff Chuck Wright said it won’t happen on his watch. According to GoUpstate.com, the repeal was introduced by state representative Harold Mitchell (D-Spartanburg), chairman of the Legislative Black Caucus. Mitchell’s bill “would limit the ability to use deadly force against someone illegally and forcibly entering a home, business, or occupied vehicle.” He said such a change is necessary because, “we were taught in Sunday School to retreat.” Sheriff Wright said the idea of taking away or limiting self-defense is “absolutely ridiculous” and he … Continue reading

Connecticut May Curb Loud Movies

From Fox News: Yes folks, the same state that wants to confiscate guns from its citizens, now wants to legislate the volume on movies and trailers.

Michelle to Vacay in China

From IJ Review: Michelle Obama and her family (absent the president) are heading to China for a taxpayer-funded vacation. While fist-bumping in the worker’s paradise, she will likely be taking the “Let’s Move” message into the Chinese schools. The First Lady should champion her initiatives abroad.  In the content of a sluggish economy where money lost to the government is an opportunity lost to create sustainable jobs, however, the White House’s priorities are growing questionable, and undeniably costly. How much is this vacay likely to cost? The Daily Mail has the skinny (which comes via Judicial Watch): According to Judicial … Continue reading

If they’re still behaving unacceptably, then we remind them that we really, REALLY do mean what we said, and that we’re not just saying that. 5. Should this result in … Continue reading

At the King’s Behest – A Chronology of the IRS Scandal

From Stand Up America: Since Lois Lerner is scheduled to testify, or not, or reschedule, or whatever, before the Oversight Committee tomorrow, this might be a good time to review the IRS’ timeline of events. ~~~ Maybe there never was any direct order from Obama to go after certain enemies via the weaponization of the IRS and other agencies, he did not have to. His team knew what they needed to do, and they were already predisposed to it as well, and were already doing it across the board anyway. We at SUA believe there was such an order, because after a certain … Continue reading
