What's with our president?

Jim Geraghty has a piece on his blog "What is with the president?" analyzing how it is this administration continues to make blunder after blunder on White House communications.

Let me add some things to this list.

1) This guy is freakin' lazy. Let's face it. He's never had a real job in his life so I'm sure that having staffer after staffer waiting on you to make decisions becomes wearing.

2) Voting present isn't an option when you president. Real jobs mean making real decisions; often tough decisions. Not making a decision is a decision in and of itself. This guy thinks that not doing anything in the Middle East means that things will work themselves out. We can now see results of "leading from behind".

3) Because this guy has never had a real job, he really does not understand what an executive is called to do. Seriously, this guy thinks that an executive just shows up to rally the worker bees and then he's free to hit the golf course.

Years ago, I had a client who would just be AWOL during the day leaving her staff to make really important decisions without her. Then she would ream them out for not consulting her when they made a decision she didn't like. I told her that being a business owner was more than a name on a business card. I wasn't her accountant after that day and she's no longer in business today. Go figure.

4) He's intellectually inflexible. Part of being a liberal is adhering to the orthodoxy even in the face of abject failure. ie they still want to confront global warming despite the fact that there hasn't been any warming in the past 18 years yet no one can really explain why; let's be nice to terrorists and they'll leave us alone etc.....

5) He's doesn't want his name on anything so went the shit hits the fan he's got a scapegoat.

Back in the day when I worked in banking, my department head asked me to rewrite some inane memo. When I asked him what he wanted in or out of the memo he gave me a whole line of fluffy bullshit that didn't mean anything. I told him if he wanted it changed he could edit what he wanted.

It pissed him off because he really didn't want to be associated with the memo. I concluded that he wanted me to be the fall guy when the shit started flying.

If you have any other reasons why these guys are truly the JV team email them to me at and I'll post them.

I couldn't agree more.

Back to the future

Remember the good old days when liberals decried the use of paper bags to bag your groceries because some giant Sequoia in California had to die to make it.

In the perpetual liberal whining about all things commercial, plastic now sucks.

Go to a grocery store in California and buy all the milk, eggs and vegetables you want. But there’s one thing you won’t find at the checkout line, beginning July 1, 2015: Plastic bags to carry your stuff home. 
Gov. Jerry Brown (D) on Tuesday signed into law a ban on single-use plastic bags, making California the first state to prohibit stores from using the ubiquitous carry-alls. Shoppers will be charged 10 cents for every paper bag and heavy-duty plastic bag they use. 
“This bill is a step in the right direction,” Brown said in a press releaseannouncing his approval. “It reduces the torrent of plastic polluting our beaches, parks and even the vast ocean itself.” 
It is also a step toward what is likely to be an expensive electoral fight pitting the plastics industry against environmentalists who support the ban. The American Progressive Bag Alliance, an industry group of plastics producers, said Tuesday it will mount a campaign to collect enough signatures to put an initiative repealing the measure on the ballot in 2016.

Here's the dirty little secret about canvas bags. They create a larger carbon footprint than plastics.
None the less, I'm convinced that liberals will always create something to whine about .

The war on working people

Meet Yonah Israel

Why is Mr. Israel in the news..........

Cincinnati police arrested a man Wednesday just blocks away from where he allegedly shot and killed a service worker after an argument about an ATM machine in Roselawn.

Yonah Israel, 36, was charged with murder in the shooting death of Daniel Muscarella, 54, police said at a press conference Wednesday afternoon.

Israel has a criminal record and was arrested around 2:30 p.m. in the 7100 block of Reading Road close to where the homicide took place, said Capt. Eliot Isaac.

To say that this clown has a criminal record is the understatement of the year. This guy has been arrested and convicted over 50 times since the 1990's. He should never have been on the street.

Now let me ask you this question. Is it the crime policies of liberals or conservatives who allowed this guy to commit a murder against a working stiff trying to provide for his family?

Remember, this guy wasn't in the suburbs, where we would have dealt with him probably after his 20th conviction, he was in "Progress" City inflicting his pain.

Elbert Guillory: Mary Landrieu is Not Helping Blacks

The war on the poor

So utility costs are going up in Massachusetts.

Many Massachusetts households are going to see their electric bills shoot up 37 percent this winter, a rate increase that some advocates fear will put additional strain on low-income families. 
State regulators approved the increase for National Grid household customers that would mean an average of $33 per month more for the typical residential customer and would push a typical monthly bill higher than $150. 
Large-business customers will see even higher increases.National Grid has almost 1.3 million residential and business electric customers in Massachusetts. The new rates take effect in November. 
"This is pretty bad, and it's going to really have a bearing on a lot of Massachusetts households' abilities to just make ends meet this winter," John Howat, senior energy analyst at the National Consumer Law Center in Boston, told The Boston Globe. 
The utility blame the rate hikes on the cost of buying electricity from power plants, which has soared because of an increased demand for natural gas used to generate electricity.
Why is there an increase in natural gas prices?

Because the political correctness known as global warming means that we can't use coal to generate electricity.

Let me ask a question

Who gets hurt more from increased utility costs in Massachusetts?

1) Single Moms
2) John Kerry
3) Ben Affleck
4) David Ortiz
5) Tom Brady


The war on the press

It seems like it just rolls off the tongue like water.

Conservatives will do anything to stifle a free press in this country.

But is that really the case?

Let's face it. Whenever the communists take over a government, the first thing they do is start shooting members of the media.

But take a left wing government here in this country. There are no be headings but there's sure a hell of lot of press suppression. 

Don't take my word for it. Take a reporters.............

The war on children

Between getting ready for vacation, doing vacation, and catching up from vacation, I'm not able to devote some blogging time.

While I was out of town, I read this piece printed, in all places, the Minneapolis Star Tribune regarding the plan reduction in suspensions in Minneapolis Schools.

Creating stable middle class neighborhoods should be the top priority of our political and civic leaders — a goal requiring quality public schools, reasonable taxes and low crime rates. The simple fact is that Minneapolis and St. Paul will not be healthy without a large and growing middle class. 
But the reality is that people often leave depressed inner city communities quietly without much fanfare. Who can blame them given the quality of the schools and the level of crime and violence that exist in parts of our city? Along with most people reading this article, I would never expose children to the risks that exist in many parts of our city. 
What’s ironic is that public schoolteachers and elected officials know this. These public servants often talk of their support for public schools while disproportionately sending their children to private schools. 
Some studies show that public schoolteachers are twice as likely as the general public to send their kids to private schools. Other studies have shown that over 30 percent of the members of Congress send their school age children to private schools, while less than 10 percent of the general public use private schools. 
The recent effort by the Minneapolis school board to reduce suspensions in early grades and equalize suspensions across racial lines will have one certain effect — more chaos in the classroom. The school system will, of course, deny that the new policy will be harmful, presenting it as necessary to close the achievement gap and a learning opportunity for students of all racial and ethnic backgrounds.

So let me ask a question, is it the big, racist, conservatives subjecting good students to packs of derelicts or liberals?

I keep saying on this blog that I'm not a conservative for me. I've got my education so what do I give a shit if a bunch of kids in Minneapolis can't read because the school district would rather protect miscreants rather than educating the diligent. In fact, it's to my economic advantage to keep these kids ignorant.

But right is right. and you won't find a conservative worth their wears who would approve of this policy.

It's the liberals, waging the war on children.
