NATO

Today, the president assures us we are out of it.  We hand it over to NATO, and we take a backseat.  Please.  That's like Bruce Wayne handing it over to Batman. 

NATO= Need American Troops Only.

Handing it over to NATO means they make our guys wear a different helmet during the bombing.

Remember the purpose of NATO?  It is a treaty among nations that states if the Soviet Union attacks one of the nations, the rest agree to go to war against the Soviets.  It was our way of assuring Western Europe that we would defend them against the Soviets.

There is nothing in the NATO Charter about getting involved in  civil wars in the Middle East.

No Parades

They are making the Son of Mario into the next Milton Friedman because of the budget he just passed. 

Please.

He cuts spending by a puny 2%-and is hailed as a fiscal hero?

The fact that this budget is  being celebrated shows how pathetic we have become.

This budget solves nothing.

It does nothing regarding pension reform.  Without that, the 2% cut is like putting an ace bandage on the ankle of a lung cancer patient and giving them a clean bill of health.

The budget is silent on putting much-needed caps on medical malpractice lawsuits,which is killing the state.  

He avoids the public unions altogether, including the insanity that allows the teacher's union to decide who gets laid off.

Speaking of the teachers union, you know how you can tell if the Son of Mario is doing a good job?  When the unions hate his guts as much as they hate Chris Christie and Scot Walker, that's when.

There's nothing brave in this budget;we are still on the road to fiscal ruin. 

So don't throw him a parade.

Counting

NYC officials are complaining  that the city has been under counted in the 2010 Census.  Their complaint goes like this:

1) We are a haven for illegal immigrants.

2) We have regulations that forbids city government agencies from asking people to prove their legal status.

3) We provide unlimited social services to all illegal aliens that live in New York City.

4) Because of 1-3, we are a magnet that naturally attracts more and more people.

5) When the Census counters knock on the doors of illegal aliens, they purposely decide not to answer.

6) As a result, the illegal aliens-- who violate federal law by entering the country and receive services provided by the U.S. taxpayer-- are under counted by the Census.

7) Because they are under counted, we will receive less money from the federal government, which we need desperately because we are a city that  by design is a magnet for illegal aliens.

And around and around we go.

We are doomed.

Why He Did It

President OBomber agreed to implement the No-Fly Zone because we wants to encourage people to use high-speed rails.....

Barack OBomber

A lot of people when they go on spring break, they go to South America and get bombed.  Obama, the Neo-Bam, went to South America to begin bombing.  He did not bother to go to Congress to authorize military action action Libya, nor did he take the time to explain to the American people his rationale.

And after the bombing began, he continued his spring break. You would think that he would shake the hand of the Brazilian leader and say, "Sorry, I gotta split, I just started a war".  But if you thought that, you would be wrong.  Because Obama's spring break  tour continues as he makes his way to Chile.

Don't you find that equal parts odd and irresponsible? And downright weird?

And what about starting a war without getting authorization from Congress?

I thought libs were into the whole voting thing.  Rock the Vote. Vote or Die.

Want to turn your liberal friends/associates into as Tommy from Goodfella's would say, "stubling mumbling pricks?"  Just quote Obama  from 2007, before he turned into Neo-Bam:

The President does not have power under the Constitution to unilaterally authorize a military attack in a situation that does not involve stopping an actual or imminent threat to the nation.

Watch them stumble as they try to reconcile that statement with the Barack O' Neo-Bomber of 2011.

Even Harry Houdini couldn't get out of that bind.

But we don't hear a peep from the anti-war crowd, do we?

Schools Out

Check out this news item out of Asbury Park:

The state fiscal monitor who oversees financial operations in the school district Thursday morning ordered the closing of the Barack H. Obama Elementary School as of July 1.


The one issue school officials are struggling with: what are they going to do with all of those extra Teleprompters in the supply room?

The Fraud Five

Jalen Rose has done the impossible: by calling the black Duke players Uncle Toms, he has made me sympathetic to Duke.  What a horrible thing for me to feel-especially on the eve of the tournament.

Rose made his tasteless observation when he was promoting his bogus documentary, "The Fraud Five."

The Fraud Five never won a championship, never took a Big Ten crown, and they get their own documentary?

From all accounts their biggest contribution was the length of their shorts and the color of their sneakers.  Make a mental note: when the most memorable thing about a team is their sense of fashion, you know they never won anything.

But there is a Fab Fraud Documentary worth making: the relationship between Chris Webber and Detroit bookie Ed Martin.  Someone should look under the hood and tell us what they find.

Anyway, Grant Hill responded to Rose's comments in the New York Slimes, linked below. It's a masterful take down of Rose by Hill.

And while you should read the whole thing, take note of this little tidbit:

I come from a strong legacy of black Americans. My namesake, Henry Hill, my father’s father, was a day laborer in Baltimore.

How awesome-Grant Hill is named after his grandfather, Henry Hill!  I wonder if his grandmother is named Karen?

He Has His Priorities

Just because the world is on fire with tsunamis, nuclear meltdowns, civil wars, -not to mention a lack of a budget here which could lead to a government shutdown- it doesn't mean that the leader of the free world should not take the time to go on national television to complete his March Madness brackets...

By the way, if he filled out his brackets  like the way he's handled Libya, he would wait until the championship game is over and than write in the winner.....

A Tie Goes To....

Every year there are teams that get left out of the NCAA Tournament.  That's the way the ball bounces.  This year, Harvard was one school that had a legitimate claim to the dance, but instead were left outside the club hoping that the bouncer would let them in-but it never happened.

Let's examine Harvard's credentials.  They had their best record in more than a half century.  They had an amazing conference record.  Their RPI and strength of schedule were top-notch.

So why didn't they make it?  Well the truth was it came down to Harvard and one other school.  They were absolutely deadlocked when the committee put Harvard and the other school into the computer. With that being the case, the committee had to use  one last little- known tie breaker: has the school allowed the military on campus in the last 40 years?

And now you know why Harvard didn't make it.

National Punked Radio

To paraphrase Shaq, hey NPR, how does James O'Keefe's ass taste?  From now on, NPR is officially known as National Punked Radio.  How could it happen?  I mean, the people who run NPR are the brightest people we have in America-just ask them.  They don't cling to to their religion or their guns at National Punked Radio. 

They are much to progressive for that.

They are the elite of the elite-the green (energy) berets of liberal aristocracy. I mean, they speak so softly on National Punked Radio, isn't that a sign of high- level intelligence?  They went to the finest schools, they broadcast from their taxpayer paid for ivy tower and spread the liberal gospel from coast to coast.

And they got punked.

Big time.

By a 26 year old kid.

F them. 

God bless James O'Keefe.

Collect Nothing

Of all the great reforms put forth by Governor Walker in Wisconsin, the one that libs least want to lose is the collection of union dues by state government.

They know it's their life blood.

And that's why it needs to be abolished everywhere.

Starting now-in Wisconsin.

It is a totally private function, done on behalf of a private organization, but provided by the taxpayer.

It is indefensible.

Think about it: the state deducts money from the paycheck of union workers, collects that money, and then hands it over to the union.

Why should any state allocate resources to collecting money for a private organization?

What exactly does the taxpayer get from this arrangement?

Public Sector union leaders know that they owe their existence to this arrangement they have with liberal politicians.

They get their money no matter what.

They have no worries when it comes to cash flow-all because of this sucker deal.

Let these unions chase down their own members for their dues.

And that's exactly what happened for a brief shining moment in New York City.  After the last illegal transit strike, Governor Pataki told the union, "collect your own dues."  And what happened? 30% of union members stopped paying.  Which resulted in the union bosses having to use time and resources like a bill collector harassing their members to pay up.

It was a great public policy.  It forced unions to collect money themselves, and made them directly accountable to their members.  And every moment they spend bill collecting was less time devoted to shaking down taxpayers.

But it didn't last. Not in hopelessly liberal New York.  After 18 months, Governor Patterson went back to the old way, and the money came flowing in again to the union coffers.

But Governor Walker seems to have what it takes to win this fight.

For the good of all of us, let's hope he wins.

A Good Deed

The racial police always have their summons book ready.  They will write you up in a second.  Check out what happened with the LA Clippers.  In late February the team put an ad in LA Times stating that in honor of black history month, they will admit 1,000 underprivileged children to their March 2 game for free.

Sounds like a nice gesture, right?  And the kids who presumably love basketball, will get a thrill from going to an NBA game.

Sounds warm and fuzzy to me.

But not to the racial police, who interpret everything through the narrow prism of race, and they always assume the worst of motives.

Check this out from the LA Times:

In honor of Black History Month, the Clippers will admit 1,000 underprivileged children free," read the text, and if you're like me, you're thinking, hmm, why are "underprivileged children" directly linked to "black history?"


Is Donald Sterling saying that the only underprivileged children are black?

How twisted is that?  The team is giving away for free 1,000 tickets to poor kids and that is seen as a bad thing?

But the racial police handed down another indictment.  More from the LA Times:

The other problem is the date of the "Black History Month" giveaway, which is March 2 against Houston. If you are going to honor that month, get the right month.

So giving poor black kids free tickets to a March 2 game is disrespectful?  I guess a home game in February would have been appropriate to the racial police, but oh no, my bad, the advertisement that announced the giveaway was insensitive so it was a lose-lose situation.

And even if the advertisement was deemed sufficient, the racial police would have focused on seat location or some other bogus issue because that's the way the game works.

Let's just hope the kids had a great time at the game, and that their experience was not tarnished by the racial police and their never-ending summons book.

My Small Market Big City Team

It seems that the banks have all shut their cash windows to Met Owner Fred Wilponzi.  Don't be surprised if you see Jose Reyes at a Flushing check-cashing place this summer, hoping that Wilponzi's checks don't bounce.  Before you know it, the Mets will be asking fans to return foul balls....
