Why All The Hate?

Sarah Palin says celebrity critics are 'full of hate'

Film-maker Stephen K Bannon's hagiographical portrayal of Sarah Palin opens with several minutes of footage in which various well-known figures in film and US television offer scathing, often expletive-ridden verdicts on the former Alaska governor and darling of the American right, who is said to be weighing up a tilt at the US presidency next year. Their angry comments are interspersed with news footage of an effigy of Palin being hanged. Among those to be represented are Matt Damon (who likens Palin to "a really bad Disney movie"), Madonna, comic Bill Maher and talk-show hosts David Letterman and Howard Stern.

Speaking to the Hollywood Reporter following the screening at a historic opera house in the small town of Pella, Iowa, Palin said it was the first time she had seen the footage. "It makes you want to reach out to some of these folks and say, 'What's your problem? And what was the problem? And what is the problem?'" she said. "What would make a celebrity, like you saw on screen, so hate someone that they'd seek their destruction, their death, the death of their children? What would make someone be so full of hate and, I guess, a sense of being threatened that they would want to see that person destroyed?"

What's their problem?

These "Celebrities" she asks about are - off camera - liars, cheats, adulterers, drunks, druggies, pedophiles, thieves, lowlifes of all stripes who fear anyone that may shine a light on them and expose them for what they really are... very very sick people.

I conclude that - deep down inside - the individuals that launch these kinds of attacks know they are leading lives of depravity and perversion and cannot tolerate anyone that may expose them to the public, potentially destroying their reputations and careers.

It is easy to understand why any of Hollywood's cavorting and drunken blond bimbos do not want to be compared to someone like Michelle Bachmann.

Generally decent people like Palin and Bachmann really scare these scumbags. That's why all this hatred and vitriol are tossed at them every minute of the day.

Consider the sources of these attacks. Study the lives they lead, and then decide who the losers are.

Nationwide News Blackout

Here's a massive wreck that is almost impossible to get details on:

SPARKS, Nev. (AP) — Two truck drivers and a train engineer watched helplessly as a semitrailer slammed into an Amtrak passenger train at a Nevada highway crossing, skidding the length of a football field before it smashed through the warning gates and into a pair of double-decker cars.

They say his brakes must have failed.

When an eighteen-wheeler is involved in a serious accident out in the southwest and the news is buried, you can pretty much be certain that the truck driver was a Mexican National driving a Mexican truck, one of the trucks that have been allowed to enter the United States without any sort of proper safety inspection or oversight, part of the administrations pilot program to allow unlimited access across our borders for Mexican freight haulers.

I imagine we will never know for sure, particularly if the driver was indeed a Mexican national... Bad press for the pilot program.

Peoria, Illinois

Insanity in Peoria:

... around 11 p.m., a group of at least 60-70 African American youth marched down one of the side streets (W. Thrush) to the 4 lane main drag (Sheridan). They were yelling threats to white residents. Things such as we need to kill all the white people around here. They were physically intimidating anyone calling for help from the police. They were surrounding cars. Cars on the main drag had to slam on their brakes to either avoid the youth blocking not only all four lanes, but a large section of the side street as well. fights were breaking out among them. They were rushing residents who looked out their doors, going on to porches, yelling threats to people calling the police for help.

Those young "African American" fools have no idea how close to the edge they are.

I can promise you one thing: One fine night they will pick the wrong neighborhood in the wrong town... and none of them will live to tell the story.

They are begging for open warfare in the streets. They may actually believe they are ready for it. But being a big mouth with a pistol in the middle of a screaming mob doesn't make one ready for a 30.06 slug between the eyes.

Like I've said before, It's gonna be a long, hot summer... this one, or the next... latest.

Whose Side?

Drawing a line in the sand:

U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton is questioning the priorities of lawmakers criticizing the U.S. intervention in Libya.

She's asking bluntly, "Whose side are you on?"

Seems we have two choices for an answer:

-1) I'm on the side of the Constitution that requires the president to get Congressional approval before committing this nation to War, or to an Act of War.

-2) I'm on the side of a president who believes he has no limits to his powers.

Answer (1) means you also agree that the War Powers Act is Unconstitutional and thus illegal, that Congress cannot abrogate it's Constitutional responsibilities by pawning them off on to the president.

The real question is:

Whose side is Hillary on?

Ron Paul Beats Romney Big Time

Ron Paul captured the presidential straw poll at the Republican Leadership Conference in New Orleans, easily besting his nearest competitor, Jon Huntsman.

Paul won 612 votes to Huntsman's 382. Michele Bachmann came in third with 191 votes and Herman Cain finished behind her, taking 104 votes.

Paul was edged by one vote at this same event last year, but this straw poll success has become de rigeur at such gatherings. And, just as they have at recent CPACs, Paul's backers in the crowd here let out loud cheers when the results were announced from the stage while the regular Republicans in the audience booed the Libertarian-leaning Texas congressman's success.

Romney got a rip-roaring 74 votes, Tim Pawlenty, 18 votes.

Regular Republicans in the audience booed the Libertarian-leaning Texas congressman's success.

I used to be one of those "regular Republicans" but got tired of trying to tippy-toe around in a pit of Boa Constrictors.

Never was a democrat... Didn't like the pond scum sticking to my ankles.

Now I just sit back and throw rocks at both their houses.

Actually it's not two separate houses, it's more like a duplex that shares the same garage, yard and roof.

6,000 Megawatts Gone Forever

And that's just for starters.

Utility giant American Electric Power said Thursday that it will shut down five coal-fired power plants and spend billions of dollars to comply with a series of pending Environmental Protection Agency regulations.

In a statement outlining its plan to comply with EPA's regulations, AEP said it would need to retire 6,000 megawatts of coal-fired power generation in the coming years.

Does anyone understand just how much power that is? How many cities could go dark if we lost these 6,000 Megawatts?

One thing for certain, brownouts and selective power shut downs will increase dramatically.

Show me how this administration intends to replace this 6,000 Megawatts. With solar? Wind? Don't make me laugh.

Demand from these lunatics the plans on exactly now they will replace this lost energy: What kind of generation source, where it will be, how much it will cost, how long it will take to construct.

Demand that they provide replacement energy, watt for watt, before they close down any plant, anywhere.

Those who believe or think solar or wind will supply us with our energy needs are nothing more than day-dreaming fools. They just haven't done the math. At the same time, they refuse to allow nuclear plants to be built, or hydro-electric plants along our rivers, or gas-fired plants anywhere.

These Renaissance Fair simpletons think we should all scale back to the lifestyles of our forefathers in the 17th century: Mud shacks, tallow candles, outhouses, all of us raising chickens and sheep and planting wheat every year.

They intend to do this by not only making power too expensive for us, but making sure there is no power to be had at any price.

This is war people, and it's time to stop these lunatics. Who the hell does the EPA think it is to impose such draconian policies on America? By what authority are they doing this?

Congress better get off it's fat butt and put a short leash on the EPA before they do irreparable damage to our society and our nation.

Stanley Anne Dunham

Much has been written about Barack Obama's mother. The Internet is packed with views and opinions from every angle. Very little of what has been written can be truly established as fact since Stanley Ann is dead and gone... And that so many records about her are missing or destroyed.

For me, a picture has emerged about this woman - created by the many articles I have read - and the picture is not a pretty one.

Some say this woman hated her father because of her name: Stanley. They say she believed she was named for a son her father wanted but never had. Because of this hatred of her father - who represented all things white to her - she intentionally searched out the blackest of men who would have her.

It would seem that her "marriage" to Obama Senior was one of those "marriages of convenience", wherein a foreign student marries a citizen in order to remain in the United States, in this case for Obama Sr., it was so he could finish his American education. Records indicate that they never lived together, reinforcing this assumption.

She then married an Indonesian and moved to Indonesia. However, no record of a divorce from Obama Sr. has been found.

The available data and records on Stanley Ann suggest she could have been a huge embarrassment (at the very least) to a President Obama.

Obama came out of nowhere to become president. His short and unnotable bit as an Illinois Senator is/was not sufficient to elevate him into the national spotlight, into the role of a presidential candidate.

There are powerful individuals and groups that have managed and steered this man in to what he is today: A tool trained to transform America into something it was never intended to be.

For that reason, I suspect that those who molded Obama for the position he holds today, those who supported him and paid for his expensive education and livelihood, the people in the shadows behind this American president, arranged for his mother to be removed from the scene.

Consider: His mother was still reasonably young (52) and in apparent good health, but contacts cancer and dies. In 1995 she was examined at the Memorial Sloan–Kettering Cancer Center in New York City and diagnosed with uterine cancer that had spread to her ovaries.

Said Obama of his mothers death:

I remember my mother. She was 52 years old when she died of ovarian cancer, and you know what she was thinking about in the last months of her life? She wasn’t thinking about getting well. She wasn't thinking about coming to terms with her own mortality. She had been diagnosed just as she was transitioning between jobs. And she wasn’t sure whether insurance was going to cover the medical expenses because they might consider this a preexisting condition. I remember just being heartbroken, seeing her struggle through the paperwork and the medical bills and the insurance forms. So, I have seen what it's like when somebody you love is suffering because of a broken health care system.

Sounds like a campaign speech.

There was money enough for an education at two of Americas most expensive universities, but not enough available to save his mother?

Obama had the money to be able to graduate magna cum laude from the Harvard Law School in 1991, and we are to believe that a Harvard graduated lawyer couldn't figure out how to get some cash for his Momma's operation in 1995?

Now, hundreds of thousands of women have had those particular innards removed without issue. It's a form of birth control. One must ask why Stanley Ann's diseased organs were not simply removed? Or if they were removed(in what is considered a ho-hum operation), why did she die, when many thousands of women did not?

The whole story about the death of Stanley Ann stinks.

People powerful enough to create an American president out of thin air would certainly have no problem or qualms about removing a potential embarrassment, even if it was his mother.

One thing... What the records do show is that Stanley Ann was indeed a good mother, and all the sadder the story if she was killed for political convenience.

One must wonder if Obama has ever given this a moment's thought.

These People Are Just Plain Stupid

What planet are these people from?

The City Council in Cedar Falls, IA has voted to expand its lock box ordinance. What is that, you ask? That means residents in certain apartment buildings, as well as some businesses, have to give access to their building keys to firefighters. The council said it’s to protect the citizens in case of an emergency. But opponents say it’s a scary example of an ever-creeping Big Brother.

Is there anyone on planet earth that thinks some firefighter won't sell those lockbox access codes or keys to criminals if offered enough money, or sex, or whatever it is they need or want?

This is beyond stupid. It's criminal. The Cedar Falls City Council, by virtue of it's total misunderstanding of human nature, will be paving the way for the criminals of Cedar Falls to have a field day of crime.

If they force this issue on the citizens of Cedar Falls, they'd better have a safe place to go hide when the SHTF.

Some Good News

HOUSTON – Images of a smiling Rep. Gabrielle Giffords were posted early Sunday on her Facebook page, two photos that show her with shorter hair but few other signs of the gunshot wound to the head that she suffered five months ago.

It appears she may have survived with most -if not all - of her mental capabilities intact, nothing short of a miracle. Unknown by the general public at this time is whether her vocal functions have recovered.

The obvious indentation at her left temple is where a portion of her skull was removed to allow for brain swelling. By the time you read this, they will have replaced that portion of her skull.

The Trigger Has Been Pulled... Or Not

Oh-oh: - China has dropped 97 percent of its holdings in U.S. Treasury bills, decreasing its ownership of the short-term U.S. government securities from a peak of $210.4 billion in May 2009 to $5.69 billion in March 2011, the most recent month reported by the U.S. Treasury.

Glen Beck has consistently said that when the Chinese dumped their U. S. Treasury Securities we could start the countdown to our total financial collapse.

Problem right now is that Beck is so emotionally trussed up with Israel's endless problems with their neighbors that he's not watching any more, so has the clock started, or not?

Do they have other securities, like long-term ones? Enough so that this 97% dump of short-term ones is not the real trigger?

Curious, I am.

Airline Add-0n Fees Increasing.

Airlines have doubled baggage fees and other add-ons since the extra charges took off in 2008.

Can't say I blame them... More and more people can't seem to travel with less than half their wardrobe.

Used to be that the average passenger had one carry-on and maybe one for the cargo hold. Not so much anymore. You see many more flying travelers who think the airline is also a free moving company for their stuff:

So. Let her pay for transporting all that crap. Pound for pound, it takes the same amount of fuel to move a chest-high pile of baggage as it takes for a paying passenger.

I can hear it all now: But, but... She was on the way to college! She needs all that! OK, fine and dandy. If she can afford today's tuition, she can sure afford to pay the airlines to get her junk there. And when she gets there, her first course definitely needs to be "Dress for Success 101".

And I might add... Those obese 400+ pounders should pay double. The laws of physics don't change because they can't - or won't - push themselves away from the trough.
