On this blog, I'm going to leave the CD's on the shelf and vent my frustrations with the current state of political affairs.
Our country has problems.
Our tax burden is worse than our founding fathers fought a revolution over.
Our Federal government has grown into a monstrosity that would make Paul Revere start riding again.
We're back...in the United States' Socialist Republic!

YOU KNEW THEY WERE GOING TO PLAY IT....
With his approval rating in the toilet, his Obamacare legacy crumbling and his minions deserting him, our fearless commander-in-chief enlisted Oprah Winfrey to play the only card left in his hand. The race card.
In Britain to promote her film "The Butler," Oprah
Winfrey gave an interview to the BBC last week. Not surprisingly, she promoted
her movie about race relations in the White House with comments about race
relations and the White House.
The BBC's Will Gompertz asked: "Has it ever crossed
your mind that some of the treatment of Obama and the challenges he's faced and
some of the reporting he's received is because he's an African American?"
Who gave Gompertz his questions-Winfrey's PR team?
Winfrey responded: "Has it ever crossed my mind? …
Probably it's crossed my mind more times than it's crossed your mind. Just the
level of disrespect. When the senator yelled out, 'You're a liar' — remember that?
Yeah, I think that there is a level of disrespect for the office that occurs,
and that occurs in some cases and maybe even many cases because he's African
Here's a clip of the interview:
I have never liked Oprah Winfrey. I hate her as an actress, I thought her show was fluff, and I have always felt she (like many black celebrities) looks for racist motives in order to sensationalize whatever agenda she is furthering.
Wasn't her performance here Oscar-worthy? The feigned insult, the faked anger...bravo!
I agree that Rep. Joe Wilson should not have
shouted "You lie!" (whether or not it was a lie) at the president
during his healthcare address to Congress.
Show me the evidence that Wilson was
motivated by racism.
It is simply nonexistent.
However, a lack of evidence hasn't stopped countless
liberals, editorial boards, pundits and stand-up comics, not to mention
administration officials, from propagating the idea that Obama's problems boil
down to the irrational bigotry of his opponents.
For example, when Kathleen Sebelius told the NAACP that the same people who opposed the Civil Rights Act and anti-lynching laws were opposing Obamacare, that was obviously based on a scientific study she had made of the Obamacare opposition, because liberals would never lie if it suits them, right?
Sadly, though, this administration cannot even sling mud competently (or build web sites, establish border security, forge birth certificates, bring troops home, balance budgets, rebuild an economy or implement effective health care reform).
In the early 90's, when President Clinton tried to transform health care, conservatives were just as opposed to it.
How interesting that then, conservatives were not considered racist.
I am curious, though-what was the motivation for the bile thrown at Bush for eight years?
Yep, GW was a cracker, but he was shown PLENTY of disrespect by these liberal asswholes who pretend to be above mudslinging.
I see-when it's a WHITE president, you can question his performance, but if you question the performance of a BLACK president, you're a racist.
For the record, I do not consider myself a racist.
I do think that an incompetent Marxist got elected president. Twice.
And his performance proves he's not too good at the job.
Are there racists in Washington?
But characterizing opposition to a failing bill that was steamrolled into law, and where the incumbent president has refused to consider any modification suggested by the opposing party, as racism, is a heck of a leap.
But you know what is NOT a leap, Oprah, you ignorant slut (to borrow a phrase from Dan Aykroyd)?
Blindly supporting everything someone says or does simply because he IS black?
