Quote of the Day

January 24, 2010

“It’s not that the democrats are playing checkers and the Republicans are playing Chess. It’s that the Republicans are playing Chess and the democrats are in the Nurse’s office because once again they have glued their balls to their thighs.”

– Comedy Central’s Jon Stewart

So Stewart is saying that the Republicans won in Massachusetts because the democrats not only dropped the ball, they dug a hole and buried it.

One of the key factors in the democrat’s success in the 2008 and 2006 elections was the Republicans going out of their way to piss off their core voters.

So, political victory appears not to depend on the excellence of one party over the other, but the greater incompetence of their opponents.

Facts don’t matter to Palin haters

November 18, 2009

Ask most people on the right on why they don’t like our Dear Leader and most will be able to articulate specific policy issues they disagree with. OK, often they sum it up with “He’s a Socialist,” but when pressed, they can cite actual policies and give details.

Ask a typical hater of Gov. Sarah Palin why they don’t like her, and most can, at best, deliver quotes made by Tina Fey, and try to attribute them to Gov. Palin. If you press them for details, they tend to get angry and often blame you for attempting to insert reality into their irrational hatred that makes them feel all warm and fuzzy.

Proud ignorance is sadly a common feature of Obama supporters.

Quote of the Day

April 23, 2009

“…status is not the American Conservative position. Rather, conservatives believe that change for change’s sake is folly. What kind of change? At what cost? For the liberals and progressives, everything was expendable, from tradition to individualism to “outdated” conceptions of freedom. These were all tired dogmas to be burned on the alters of the news age.”

Morning Quotes

Isn’t the border fence shovel-ready?

Obama and his minions will be blaming President Bush for EVERYTHING ’till their dying breath.

“Under my plan of a cap and trade system electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket” — Barack H. Obama

During the campaign, a fellow journalist confided that “I know Obama is a Manchurian candidate, I just can’t figure out what for.” — Michael Goodwin

“You’ll note that politicians no longer spend money, they invest it. Don’t worry about paying more to the [IRS]. You aren’t being taxed; you’re taking a plunge on a fly-by-night stock issue.” — P.J. O’Rourke

“There is no virtue in compulsory government charity, and there is no virtue in advocating it. A politician who portrays himself as “caring” and “sensitive” because he wants to expand the government’s charitable programs is merely saying that he’s willing to try to do good with other people’s money. Well, who isn’t? And a voter who takes pride in supporting such programs is telling us that he’ll do good with his own money — if a gun is held to his head.” — P.J. O’Rourke

“There’s nothing like a dead body found in a pool of someone else’s blood.” — Leslie Bates

“Wearing a Che shirt in a free nation is as disgusting as wearing a Heinrich Himmler shirt in Tel Aviv.” — Leslie Bates

“In other words, under Attorney General John Ashcroft, the FBI, the INS and the Department of Justice are so out of control that they have actually begun to enforce U.S. immigration laws.” — Ann Coulter

“The exact same people who are now demanding prison for Libby for not remembering who told him about Plame are the ones who told us it was perfectly plausible for Bill Clinton to forget that Monica Lewinsky repeatedly performed oral sex on him in the Oval Office. Even if chubby Jewish brunettes aren’t your type, be honest: Which of the two events would stand out more in your memory?” — Ann Coulter

“Because of the industrialization of agriculture — using massive amounts of fossil fuel — only 2 percent of Americans work in farming. And yet they produce enough food to feed all 300 million Americans, with plenty left over for export. When are liberals going to break the news to their friends in Darfur that they all have to starve to death to save the planet?” — Ann Coulter

“Gun bans don’t disarm criminals, gun bans attract them.” — Walter Mondale, U.S. Ambassador to Japan, 4/20/94

“If cowardly and dishonorable men sometimes shoot unarmed men with army pistols or guns, the evil must be prevented by the penitentiary and gallows, and not by a general deprivation of a constitutional privilege.” — Arkansas Supreme Court, 1878

“Communism and socialism is seductive. It promises us that people will contribute according to ability and receive according to needs. Everybody is equal. Everybody has a right to decent housing, decent food and affordable medical care. History should have taught us that when we hear people talk this stuff — watch out!” — Walter Williams

“The modern definition of ‘racist’ is someone who is winning an argument with a liberal.” — Peter Brimelow, [and others] National Review 02/01/93

“The Constitution is not neutral. It was designed to take the government off the backs of people.” — William O. Douglas

“You can count on a few things in this world. The swallows will return to Capistrano. Salmon will spawn. Canada’s geese will fly south for the winter. And tax cuts will create growth” — Investor’s Business Daily

“Saddam Hussein’s continued life is more of a problem than Osama bin Laden’s,” — former Clinton Secretary of State Madeline Albright, Christian Science Monitor, November 2003

Annoy a Leftist: Think!

The Netcast of the Week.

April 2, 2009

If you listen to one pod/netcast this week, make it episode 43 of Brassballs Radio.

Wendy “RightGirl” Sullivan interviews Ezra Levant about his 900 day ordeal with the Canadian so-called “Human Rights” Commission, which is actually a rigged “kangaroo court.”

Here is the first in a series of videos of one of Levant’s interrogations by the “Human Rights” commission.

Mr. Levant went on to write a book about his ordeal and how these so-called “courts” in Canada operate. Shakedown: How Our Government is Undermining Democracy in the Name of Human Rights is selling out all over Canada. It’s a wake up call for what can happen in America if the left continues to push its agenda of “political correctness.”
