‘HE WAS HITTING HIKERS’: 50-60 INJURED AS CAR PLOWS INTO VA. CROWD. Where’s the FBI? Where’s Dianne Feinstein? Where’s Mayor Nanny Bloomberg? Where’s Obama? Why aren’t 100′s of Democrats threatening to pass car control laws? This is a dark vehicle and looks like it’s an assault Cadillac.These evil vehicles should be limited to 7 gallons of gas and have ID technology on the front bumpers that leaves an imprint of the car’s serial number on the body of the person you just ran over!
Amid scandals, White House announces star-studded concert in East Room. We can hear Obama now: Let’s see, we have sequester, Benghazi, the IRS, Obamacare, Israel, Hamas, Syria, missing terrorists, GITMO, the Boston terrorists, Russia, gun control, the border, immigration reform and the economy is totaled out like a Fiat 500 that got run over by a logging truck. Hmm, I know! Let’s do something really important and have a concert! I can be the master of hegemony! I’ll do a takeoff on Al Green again! I’m, so in love with myself, whatever I want to do is all right with me.
Piers Morgan: Say, I guess government can become tyrannical after all. “I’ve had some of the pro-gun lobbyists on here, saying to me, ‘Well, the reason we need to be armed is because of tyranny from our own government,’ and I’ve always laughed at them,” Morgan said last night. “But, actually, this is vaguely tyrannical behavior by the American government.” Anybody who thinks anybody can be trusted with unchecked power just hasn’t been paying attention for the last century or so.
Report: IRS deliberately chose not to fess up to scandal before election. “…what would have happened if this fact came out in September 2012, in the middle of a presidential election? The terrain would have looked very different.” Benghazi as well. Gee, you’d almost think there was an orchestrated, deliberate effort by someone to hide all this stuff so that Obama could be reelected.
Democrat Baucus warns: More to come out on IRS scandal. “I have a hunch that a lot more is going to come out, frankly. It’s broader than the current focus. And I think it’s important that we have the hearings, and I think that will encourage other information to come out that has not yet come out.” And he oughta know. Pity he didn’t think to do anything about it before now. That’s only his job or something.
Detroit is broke – but only for the little people. “Four trustees of Detroit’s two public pension funds are heading to a Hawaiian beach resort this weekend with their $22,000 tab paid for by the funds, which are mired in claims of mismanagement and said to be at least $600 million underfunded.” Eleventy!
When pencil pushers attack. “The big-government model depends on having scrupulously honest bureaucrats. How’s that working out?” Same as it ever was – sucky. “It is said that power corrupts, but actually it’s more true that power attracts the corruptible. The sane are usually attracted by other things than power.” ~David Brin
Woodward: ‘I Would Not Dismiss Benghazi,’ Similar to Watergate: While we appreciate the direction Woodward is leaning in we must ask that he re-examine the premise. Watergate is similar to Benghazi in the way that a cup of water is similar to a flood. And the last time we checked Watergate didn’t have a body count.
I, pencil. “…nobody knows how to make a pencil. Nobody is in charge of the operation, and nobody understands it end to end. From the assembly-line worker to the president of the pencil company, thousands or millions of people have tiny, discrete pieces of knowledge about the process, but no coordinating authority organizes their efforts.” Nobody knows how to make a healthcare system either. The simple pencil illustrates why central planning can never work. Obamacare, too.
Obama: I Have ‘Complete Confidence’ In Holder: So do we. Complete confidence that he’ll shelter racist thugs, use the power of his office to persecute those on Obama’s “enemies list” and possibly be responsible for a few more deaths brought about by the guns that he gave to Mexican drug lords.
Report: IRS denied tax-exempt status to pro-lifers on behalf of Planned Parenthood. “…the IRS agent told the group to send a letter to the IRS with the entire board’s signatures stating that, under perjury of the law, they do not picket/protest or organize groups to picket or protest outside of Planned Parenthood.” Why not just make them swear a loyalty oath to Barack Obama? It’s what all the other advanced, enlightened countries do…
