    02/27/2014 9:27:50 AM PST · by HalTa · 11 replies
    We are in the midst of the greatest political distraction scam of all time. A scam that has been running for several months, and will continue to run for the next eight months. Why eight months? The answer, as Sherlock Holmes would say, is elementary. Eight months will take us past the Congressional off year elections. The elections that are crucial for the survival of our political system. The only chance the Democrats have of keeping the Senate is to somehow deflect the anger and outrage that Americans feel towards Obama and the Democrats that voted for Obamacare, What better...

    Associated Press ^ | February 4, 2014
    The Red Hot Chili Peppers decided long ago they were never going to mime a live performance. The band made an exception for the NFL, it turns out. The group’s bassist, Flea, said in a letter to fans posted on the group’s website Tuesday that the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame members pretended to play along to a pre-taped track of “Give It Away” during the Super Bowl halftime show as Anthony Kiedis sang live. The request came from NFL officials who felt it was too difficult to pull off a completely live performance because of potential sound issues.

    Americans for a Free Republic ^ | January 27, 2014 | Nelson Hultberg
    Webster’s defines a dupe as “one who is easily deceived.” But a misperception prevails among most people. They think of dupes as ignorant people only. On the contrary, there are large amounts of intelligent dupes in all societies. Brains are no protection against dupery. In fact, I would classify dupery as one of the deadly sins that curse all men and women no matter what level of class and smarts they possess. Dictatorships depend upon dupery to perpetuate themselves – especially dupery among the intelligentsia. There are, in this writer’s opinion, three forms of dupery afflicting the human race, or...

  • Liberals Believe That White Conservatives Should Not Adopt Black Children

    01/06/2014 8:02:24 AM PST · by ComtedeMaistre · 55 replies
    The recent media controversy over the MSNBC anchor who criticized Romney for adopting a black baby, reflects how liberals view white conservatives. Liberals believe that white conservatives should not be raising children at all, including their own biological children. When white conservatives adopt black children, they view it as a form of child abuse. White conservatives are seen by liberals as haters of blacks, and that they will teach their black babies to hate blacks. That attitude may seem funny to conservatives, but the liberals are serious. One blog commented on this issue: http://godfatherpolitics.com/12835/conservatives-permitted-adopt-black-babies/

    A few months ago the Atlantic explained why no one should oppose extensions to unemployment insurance. The unemployed were jobless through no fault of their own. There were three applicants to every job but not enough jobs. There wasn’t enough demand for labor. The labor market was “broken,” it explained. What was needed was to create a demand for jobs. At least they never went as far as to suggest what Nancy Pelosi adventured: that unemployment insurance was itself a form of employment. Talking to reporters, the House speaker was defending a jobless benefits extension against those who say it...

The advantages held by Republicans today will be distant memories next November. Nevertheless, the vicious uncalled-for attacks on conservatives by John Boehner, Peter King, John McCain, and their like will not be forgotten. They will become rallying cries to fight against the Republican Party next year. Those who are tempted to think that since conservatives have nowhere...

    Catholicism's new Pope Francis has called for efforts by someone else to help the world's poor and to reduce income inequality. The Pope is a teacher of Christianity for world Catholicism but also a chief executive managing the vast global enterprise of the Catholic Church. Education and training for vocational (practical) skills -- such as learning to be a carpenter -- would be one of the greatest solutions to worldwide poverty. As it happens, the largest school system in the world outside of government is operated by the Catholic Church. (To be fair, Catholicism is not one single legal organization.)...

    In his weekly radio address, President Obama preposterously pouted that "it's well past the time for folks to stop rooting for [ObamaCare's] failure," with the obvious implication that conservative Republicans are in fact cheering for the pain of the un-insured. No, Mr. President, we are not. We are, however, having a delicious moment of schaden-fraud. This is the magnificent validation we are experiencing as all elected Democrats and members of the Jurassic media are fast discovering that the man and the plan they have so arrogantly shoved down our throats - and so naively placed their hopes in -- are...

Then the government shut down. Now, instead of sharpening their attacks on Democrats, Republicans on Capitol Hill are being forced to explain why they are not to blame and why Americans should trust them to govern both...

If $1,000 then you could buythe arguement that the clerk didn't want to show the purse because she didn't think the customer could afford it. If it was a very expensive purse Ianthe $25,000+ Opeah's argument falls apart. By appearence only if you can afford a $25,000 purse you probably can afford the $38,000 one. If I go to a store to buy something and the clerk shows me something identical which costs a lot less I appreciate it. If they are close I'll evaluate the difference and...

  • Did You Know That Houses In Detroit Are Cheaper Than Used Cars?

    Fifty years of socialist rule in Detroit has achieved a revolution in cheap housing. Because 60 percent of the population of Detroit fled from the city because of high crime rates, there are more houses than people in Detroit. This article from Bloomberg Businessweek says that you can buy a house in Detroit for $6,000. http://www.businessweek.com/the_thread/hotproperty/archives/2009/03/the_median_home.html This is less than what most people pay for a used car. Advocates of "affordable housing" must be very happy.
