Class Warfare Meme

Following Tam, I wandered over to Sonic Charmer at Rhymes With Cars & Girls to smarten-up and git me some edumacation. While there I chanced to drop a comment at Andrea’s Spleenville, where the meme-in-progress was being rendered with What color is your bubble?, who goes on a good tear and says:

Anyway, for your amusement, I’m going to answer RWCG-guy’s parodic takeoff on the test.

And I thought, “Hey, Likewise!” Somebody please score me because I went to California schools where they used us as New-Math guinea-pigs, and subsequently I can’t do the math.

But first my Certificata from Test-Ology Camp, and before I attempt to gather some cleverness together, first I have my say.:  UPDATE: bLAH-BLAH-bLAH

Patrick Leahy Is Eric Holder’s Punk Ass Flunky Peg Boy

Meme this Peg-boy Leahy;  You owe it to Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry, ICE Agent Jaime Zapata, and over 200 Mexican Nationals, many of them law enforcement.  From The Drawn Cutlass, and the Sipsy Street Irregulars who notice what is observed by the Confederate Yankee – leaky-Leahy got a butt-plug, he’s a leaky-no-mo’:

When the Iran-Contra scandal was just beginning to brew, Vermont Democrat Patrick Leahy strategically leaked an unclassified draft report on the Iran-Contra affair in order to ensure a press frenzy….We’re hearing the words “Iran-Contra” again.
This time they are surfacing—along with Watergate—in comparison to the greatest political scandal of our age, a number of operations where agents acting on behalf of the executive branch “walked” thousands of weapons into the hands of drug cartels and domestic gangs.

As Mike Vanderboegh points out, Leahy isn’t interested in justice. He’s only interested in protecting the political investment he made in President Obama.

NOooo!! CA Gerrymander Proposition 27 – Lies, Fakery, and Falsity

From Ballot☆Pedia

At first I was enamored by the surface of this protest, to see the reflection of my own handsome face in the mirror-pond, wearing my old Youth Brigade beret and flowing hair – and feel the immense rippling power of my collective awesomeness.

Then the waters actually did ripple and with consciousness I saw my balding Earthworm Jim visage, the thin gray chest hair, and my delusion of grandiosity died.

If there was ever a DoubleTalk-DoubleSpeak award this might get it.
If the googly-eyed pinchy botox-faced Nancy Pelosi, the sad-clown Communist Barbara Lee, and psychotically deranged Lynn Woolsey gave money to it, it must be self-serving.

If scumbucket George Soros is for it, beyond simply being bad it is very likely to be evil.

The Incumbents and Political Master-Class want their power back and the will pay millions in their effort to return control to themselves. They want to eliminate the little people who are on the Commission and return it to the untrustworthy, lying fat-cats of Incumbistan.  For the greedy stupid Pasha’s to get their power back they preform Jihad on the electorate and Taqiyya. The lying.

Jump in the Toilet, Pull the Handle…

White House Science Czar Says He Would Use ‘Free Market’ to ‘De-Develop the United States’.
These people don’t just want to slow down growth, they want to reverse it.

“A massive campaign must be launched to restore a high-quality environment in North America and to de-develop the United States,” Holdren wrote along with Paul and Anne H. Ehrlich in the “recommendations” concluding their 1973 book Human Ecology: Problems and Solutions.

WTF?? We’re being guided by recommendations made in 1973?? These guys have been completely wrong for so long it’s absolutely crazy. They have never been right about anything.

Weasel Boy Marky-Marxisty

Look it up in Wikipedia and see a picture of a Weenie. Firedoglake – I should have known, havn’t been there in over five years, it’s a third-circle of Hell mental wasteland. The smoke and stench that comes off the burning lake drives people mad, and those who swim in it are intellectual skeletons. After reading a number of sources and comments about this vicious-tongued, violent-minded little creep – a hairy little mental-midget – one common thread of opinion emerges: “He must have got beat up a lot in school.”

I doubt it, because fights and violence teach a lesson whether you like it or not and produce at a minimum, interaction with concrete “facts” and physics – and evidently he has not learned much outside his little bubble worldview. I submit he has zero actual experience with violence apart from movies, video-games, and comic books – and based on his motor-mouth skills I’m guessing he’s been able to avoid it entirely. Violence might have taught him something, empathy at least for victims of Government – but I suspect even that is too much to ask his shriveled husk of a brain.

Kids like him, JournoListas, have been coddled their entire lives and grown-up in an affluent hot-house bubble. That’s what makes it so easy for them espouse the actual, violent views of unrestrained Marxist ideologues – they have no idea what threats of real violence and subjugation their political policies demand. Their contempt for Capitalism also shows they also have no idea how much sweat and actual labor it takes to work and save and buy a car, so that you can stop taking the bus (or bicycle) and get to work in a better job, in a better place, on time and advance your career – or what it’s like to have your stuff stolen by thieves. Kids like him live in a Lotus-land of pre-provided prestige and opportunity and get their “jobs” the old-fashioned way, through patronage. And they call them selves journalists.

Ugh.

Obama – Dreams From My Ghostwriter

H/T to GunRendezvouser American Citizen at Traction Control for the inspiration. As John McCain observed, “For A Guy Who Has Already Authored Two Memoirs He Is Not Exactly An Open Book.”
Also for a guy who’s got to demonstrate his executive experience to America, “he remains strangely silent about his eight years (1994-2002) as a director of the Joyce Foundation.” Is he a quiet guy just because of Ayers, or does that quietness include the shenanigans at the Joyce Foundation? Maybe he got a little help from another published author. What if Ayers wrote Obama’s books? That might very well explain his reticence at discussing his relationship.

In the great tradition of Democrat Politics the propaganda machine is revved-up and press-releases are pumped out, media-friendly fictions are created to enhance a candidate’s resume and position – so why is it so hard to find actual Obama scholarship and publishing? We all know now that JFK (with whom Obama likes to compare himself) didn’t himself write Profiles in Courage. He was a lousy writer but a great talker (like Obama without the teleprompter). Jackie helped but JFK’s ghost- and speech-writer was Ted “Ask-Not-What-Your-Country-Can-Do-For-You” Sorensen – and it even got him a Pulitzer Prize! That book helped established JFK’s intellectual credentials and helped make him a credible presidential candidate. It launched his political career on a Presidential trajectory – much as Obama’s two efforts are geared-towards.

Jack Cashill has written a book on intellectual fraud called Hoodwinked and says, “I developed an eye for literary humbug, and Dreams serves up an eyeful.”

Prior to 1990, when Barack Obama contracted to write Dreams From My Father, he had written very close to nothing.

As an undergraduate, Obama had written what he justifiably calls some “very bad poetry.” He published nothing under his own name in The Harvard Law Review, where he served as an editor and as president. And after leaving Harvard, he published nothing in its review or in any law journal.

Then, in 1995, this untested 33 year-old produced what Time Magazine has called–with a straight face– “the best-written memoir ever produced by an American politician.”

Obama’s memoir was published in June 1995. In January 1995, Ayers had chosen Obama, then a junior lawyer at a minor law firm, to chair the multi-million dollar Chicago Annenberg Challenge grants.

In the fall of that same year, 1995, Ayers and his wife, Weatherwoman Bernardine Dohrn, launched Obama’s ascent to political stardom with a fundraiser in their Chicago home.

In short, Ayers had the means, the motive, the time, the place and the literary ability to jumpstart Obama’s career. And, as Ayers had to know, a lovely memoir under Obama’s belt made for a much better resume than an unfulfilled contract over his head.

Go read more of the Cashill analysis.

The Left loves to have their own poetry and prose published – including even such well known Nobel Laureate-frauds as Rigoberto Menchu (faked autobiography), and scientific ignoramus Algore’s An Inconvenient Fiction (using among other things, computer-generated Antarctic ice shelves from the 2004 science fiction film “The Day After Tomorrow”).

Socialist Dictators from Tajikistan to North Korea use the State to fund their insane literary efforts that every citizen has to watch and listen, sung or danced or enacted on TV – and taught in school as a part of their education. Education remember, Ayers is an Edu-guy.

Even more-so than the Mainstream Media in general, the Publishing Industry is heavily and famously pro-Democrat, so much so that most conservative books receive a negative (if not merely unresponsive) reception at best and are often pushed aside to marginal, smaller publishing houses despite an enormously successful and proven post-publishing sales record. Yet the Big Publishing Houses still offer huge advances to kack-handed and futile Lefty writers who flounder and flail (Pelosi’s book) as they seek to advance the narrative – as they so often like to put it, “By any means necessary.”

Obama dissembles lethally when he describes Ayers as “just some guy in my neighborhood.” He is much more than that and quite possibly, as I have argued, the real author of Dreams From My Father.

The publisher of Dreams, the openly liberal Peter Osnos, tells how Obama dumped his devoted long time agent after Dreams took off and then signed a seven-figure deal with Crown, using only a by-the-hour attorney.

Obama pulled off the deal after his election but before being sworn in as Senator, this way to avoid the disclosure and reporting requirements applicable to members of Congress.

Isn’t that just Hopey and Changey…
