Except, You Know, I Can’t Sing and You Can’t Dance

nMark Levin takes note of the only time since BO’s Occupation that borders seem to matter:

Specifically: when companies want to relocate their headquarters to countries that are slightly less socialistic then the USSA.

Meanwhile, as our borders are being stampeded in both directions -  “refugees” coming and corporations, who “are not people” so I don’t know why it matters, going, we carry on as best we can. Here are MO and the girls taking a break from the pressures of being the First Family by enjoying the beauty and grace of JayZ and Beyonce at their concert in Chicago. Daddy couldn’t joint them as he was in California, doing the work of the American people Democratic Party.

Sweet couple; and that Beyoncé – what a classy broad! Such a good role model for the girls:

I assure you, not a day goes by butt what Lady M bemoans the fact she and Big Guy could have been the Bey and Jay of Chicago, except for, you know, “I can’t sing, and you can’t dance.”

keep calm stay beautiful…and classy

Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold

 

yeats 1a

Did you see Big Guy’s comments from his recent round of fundraisers?

old prder not holdingThings fall apart; the centre cannot hold; – William Butler Yeats

*sigh* Do you have any idea how many times I’ve had to cite passages from The Second Coming in the 5 1/2 years of this blog’s existence? Who could have guessed that Yeats would be the unofficial poet laureate of the Obama years, and his poem of apocalypse the unofficial poem of the Occupation?

Another tweet from Barry’s last round of fund raising:

yeats

So why don’t I just go ahead and post the entire poem for our *ahem* reflection:

William Butler Yeats (1865-1939)

THE SECOND COMING

    Turning and turning in the widening gyre
    The falcon cannot hear the falconer;
    Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
    Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
    The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
    The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
    The best lack all conviction, while the worst
    Are full of passionate intensity.

    Surely some revelation is at hand;
    Surely the Second Coming is at hand.
    The Second Coming! Hardly are those words out
    When a vast image out of Spiritus Mundi
    Troubles my sight: a waste of desert sand;
    A shape with lion body and the head of a man,
    A gaze blank and pitiless as the sun,
    Is moving its slow thighs, while all about it
    Wind shadows of the indignant desert birds.

    The darkness drops again but now I know
    That twenty centuries of stony sleep
    Were vexed to nightmare by a rocking cradle,
    And what rough beast, its hour come round at last,
    Slouches towards Bethlehem to be born
?

 

OBAMA_SLOUCHING_TO_BETHLEHEMSlouching towards Bethlehem, where things fall apart.

Ah yes, being “exceptional” is such a burden.

Don’t Rest On Your Laurels; Keep Fundraising as Long as You Can.

President Barry-heard-it-through-the-grapevine-Obama presented the Congressional Medal of Honor to Staff Sgt. Ryan M. Pitts on Wednesday. In doing so, he also provided him with some sage marriage advice:

Ha ha ha! That’s high-larious!

“You should try. I’m just saying, don’t rest on your laurels after just two years.”

framed world readership-CENTAU-WM copy

Good advice, for sure, Mr. President.

Lady M, who was too busy to attend the ceremony in person, had some marriage advice for him as well:

Not that Staff Sgt. Ryan M. Pitts needs any advice from this regime administration; in fact, he could probably give them some.

Everything I know, I learned on television

Screenshot Studio capture #2131

…except for Fast and Furious, Benghazi, NSA abuses, EPA abuses, IRS abuses,VA abuses, Bergdahl-Taliban exchange, and the invasion of our former southern border. I guess phony scandals are not included in the “things I usually know about” category.

So I wonder: does he, or does he not, know about the DOJ’s suppression of the Shirley Sherrod emails? Apparently the public doesn’t have ‘any need for access to those documents,’ which seems a low standard  for any administration, even this Won, the most transparent ever.

“Go ahead, punk, make my day.”

I’ve heard from tons of people regarding yesterday’s  “What’s Your Superpower” post. Some who previously hadn’t realized they possessed superpowers, like HHS.

Until they read my blog, HHS had contended they had “no legal authority to exclude the U.S. territories from ObamaCare.” Then (ahem) upon “reflection” HHS:

discovered new (super) powers after "a careful review of this situation and the relevant statutory language," that enabled them to 'selectively exempt' American Samoa, Guam, Puerto Rico, Northern Mariana Islands, and Virgin Islands from Obamacare.

Most impressive, as up till now only Barry and DOJ were allowed to circumvent the law of the land.

Unfortunately, somebody showed Lady M my poster of her superpower. And while she liked the photo, she denied the superpower I attributed to her. So I thought I’d try again:

food 2 butay copy

I suppose I’ll hear from her about this one too, butt let me know which you like best.

Oh, and I also got some international reaction. In fact, Pooty himself weighed in on the meme with this:

putin supWM copyHe attached a personal note saying “We don’t need no stinkin’ superpowers.” I think that’s technically known in international circles as “taunting,” although I don’t think it’s against the law in Russia.

What’s Your Superpower? Besides Your Awesomeness.

Don’t blame me, Blonde Gator started this last week with her pig poster:

piggy supere power_thumb[1]

Butt that got me wondering: Do we all have super powers?

Clearly BO does; sometimes he deploys them with nothing more than his phone. Other times, it’s just his pen. It’s awesome. Still, I remember not so long ago when he lamented being burdened with his super power:

"It is a vital national security interest of the United States to reduce these conflicts because whether we like it or not, we remain a dominant military superpower, and when conflicts break out, one way or another we get pulled into them."

I sense he’s totally back in his super power groove now though:

city into detroit copy

Lady M has super powers to. For starters, like BO, she’s a Transformer. Which explains this:

So, what’s your super power? Apparently we should all have one - or not. I predict “super power inequality” is going to be a big issue for the Progs in the upcoming elections.

Progressive’s Law of “Millionaire Denialism” as explained by Kemosabe.

"Those with power fight to make sure every rule tilts in their favor. That's what democracy is up against." —Elizabeth Warren

warren netrootsElizabeth Warren headlines the 2014 NetRoots Conference in Detroit:

Right on! Right on! Right on! The most progressive wing (NetRoots) of the most progressive party convened last week in Detroit (where else?) to demand human rights for the victims of the city’s racist and inhumane water shutoffs and to unofficially acknowledge that Elizabeth Warren is Barry’s heir apparent.

warren

Lizzie took the opportunity to outline the 11 tenets of progressivism, because 11 is a nice round number:

  • "We believe that Wall Street needs stronger rules and tougher enforcement, and we're willing to fight for it." (And by “fight” I mean after we get as much from them for our campaign as possible)
  • "We believe in science, and that means that we have a responsibility to protect this Earth." (I believe that is a fallacious statement, butt then again I’m not a scientist.)
  • "We believe that the Internet shouldn't be rigged to benefit big corporations, and that means real net neutrality." (Again, I mean after we get our big bundling contributions from these big corporations.)
  • "We believe that no one should work full-time and still live in poverty, and that means raising the minimum wage." (Fallacious statement #2)
  • "We believe that fast-food workers deserve a livable wage, and that means that when they take to the picket line, we are proud to fight alongside them." (And we don’t care if that means Big Macs cost $15. We don’t think you should be eating them in the first place.)
  • "We believe that students are entitled to get an education without being crushed by debt." (Might I suggest they get a job? Better education than 99% of the college curriculums offered now days, and if Elizabeth gets her way, they’ll be making $15 an hour.)
  • "We believe that after a lifetime of work, people are entitled to retire with dignity, and that means protecting Social Security, Medicare, and pensions." (The operative term here is “lifetime of work”)
  • "We believe—I can't believe I have to say this in 2014—we believe in equal pay for equal work." (I can’t believe believe I have to say this in 2014 - STFU!)
  • "We believe that equal means equal, and that's true in marriage, it's true in the workplace, it's true in all of America." (If your Mom didn’t teach you that life isn’t fair, you will probably never grasp the intrinsic fact that human beings, by design, are not equal.)
  • "We believe that immigration has made this country strong and vibrant, and that means reform." (Fallacious statement #3, whether “reform” means amnesty or open borders.)
  • "And we believe that corporations are not people, that women have a right to their bodies. We will overturn Hobby Lobby and we will fight for it. We will fight for it!" (We will fight for the right to bypass the Constitution. Because some things are just too important to let it get in the way, like the right to employer paid abortifacients.)

In short, 1 percenter Lizzie focused her keynote NetRoots address on denouncing other 1 percenters who do not share her generous and caring heart. So you can add Lizzie to the growing list of progressives championing the elimination of “income inequality” by taxing the benefactors of “white privilege” who actually have jobs and work for a living. Also, you can add her to the list of charter members of the “millionaire denialism” movement:

 

After Liz’s stump speech, actor Mark Ruffalo (the “Hulk,” if that helps) appeared on stage to say that he was in Detroit to protest the city’s controversial water shutoffs for nonpayment:

“It’s a choice between our America and the .001%’s America,” he said.

In order to fully understand the extent of this humanitarian crisis you need to know that the Detroit Water Board - owned by the bankrupt city of Detroit – started shutting customers off for non-payment last March. At the time they had $120 million in arrears, as over half of the residential customers had already determined that water was a basic human right and therefore did not pay their bills at all. Currently the Water Board is down to a far more reasonable $90 million arrears. I’ll let Nadine, who has had her water shut off for being just $5700 in arrears, explain the inequality of this situation:

“I just cannot imagine that there’s thousands of people right here in the city that are going through this and that so many people see nothing wrong with it. They feel like, ‘Well if you didn’t pay your bill, then you shouldn’t get water.’” (h/t to my bro)

I KNOW! I can’t believe it either!!! Imagine thinking that you should have to pay for stuff like your Obama-phone, or your lobster tails! When there’s so much inequality in this country. That’s so, so…Republican. Because “millionaire denialism” only works for “dead broke” Democrats.

warren v clintonWhat difference, at this point, does it make?

Anyway, I think Nadine should be allowed to run up her water bill to a nice round $9000 before anyone harasses her again. Because with the Water Board running an arrears balance of $90 million – if my math is correct – Nadine will then be a member of the .001%.

Move Over Jimmy, America’s Worst President Now Available in Black

polls_obama20worst_president_poster_5352_807205_answer_1_xlarge

If not for Thursday’s .38 second special speech on the downed Malaysian airline, BO’s address yesterday might have gone down as the worst international incident speech by an American President ever. For any number of reasons, here are just a few:

“By far the country that lost the most people onboard the place was the Netherlands.” – thanks BO, butt there isn’t a prize.

“Now, here is what we know so far. Evidence indicates that the plane was shot down by a surface-to-air missile that was launched from an area that is controlled by Russian-backed separatists inside of Ukraine.” – Far be it from us to rush to judgment, to take sides, to use this crisis as an opportunity to advance our own agenda. We reserve that tactic for domestic issues.

“Now, here's what's happened now. This was a global tragedy.” -  Upgraded from Thursday’s “terrible tragedy.”

“So there has to be a credible international investigation into what happened.” - Because allowing the Russian Separatists to investigate themselves would be sort of like letting the IRS investigate itself. Or the DOJ investigate itself. Or the State Department investigate itself.

“Evidence must not be tampered with. Investigators need to access the crash site.” – Are you paying attention, Lois Lerner?

“So now's, I think, a somber and appropriate time for all of us to step back and take a hard look at what has happened. Violence and conflict inevitably lead to unforeseen consequences.” – Really? unintended consequences? That never happens does it?

obamacare-cartoon-2-a

Remember when Romney declared Russia our #1 geopolitical foe? Remember how liberals laughed, and Big Guy joked “the 1980s called and they want their foreign policy back,”? Seriously, that’s no joke. Heck, we might even settle for the 1970’s about now, and you know how difficult it was to make Jimmy Carter sound presidential.

Remember, nature abhors a vacuum; step away from the giant sucking sound: it leads down the rabbit hole.

black hole vacuumWe are now staring into an actual black hole

And one last thought: who doesn’t lose their mind over a bowl of good chips and guacamole?
