Off The Wall…

There they go again, doing their best to sound brilliant and coming off like a bunch of dolts. Gossiping like high school kids, making ignorant statements concerning women, treating the American public as if we’re stupid. The clown show is neverending with the loons on the left in Congress.

First up is the adnoidal Harry Reid who heard from someone, whose name he can’t mention, who might be an investor, Mitt Romney hasn’t paid taxes in 10 years. This secret source of earth shaking information, which Reid brought up for public knowledge, couldn’t possibly know about Romney’s tax returns. But, Reid put it out there in hopes you are stupid enough to think it might be true. We could talk about Reid’s land deal in Nevada which made him a bunch of money through his legislative position and insider information. Now which man do you think is more ethical? Maybe Reid should release all the information that netted him a nice profit. How would that look?

About a month ago, Reid said, someone who had previously invested with the venture capital firm called him to say that the former Massachusetts governor and presidential hopeful hadn’t payed taxes for a decade.

“Harry, he didn’t pay any taxes for 10 years,” Reid said he was told, according to The Huffington Poston Tuesday.

Reid said he wasn’t sure if the tip was true or not.

“He didn’t pay taxes for 10 years! Now, do I know that that’s true? Well, I’m not certain,” Reid said. “But obviously he can’t release those tax returns. How would it look?”

Now comes Tom Harkin, another Senator on the left, who thinks women are just too darn bitchy, PMSing all over the place, unable to work, having major problems coping with every part of their lives if birth control is not free and available to all.

Sen. Tom Harkin (D-Iowa) today justified what the Catholic bishops of the United States have unanimously called an “unjust and illegal mandate” that forces Catholic business owners to provide coverage for free sterilizations, contraceptives and abortion-inducing drugs because, Harkin said, some women need birth control pills to deal with menstrual pain.

“There are many women who take birth control pills, for example, because they have terrible menstrual cramps once a month, some of them almost incapacitated, can’t work,” said Harkin. “I know of young women myself who, because of this, aren’t able to work and be productive, and it’s prescribed by their doctor.”

I’ve got news for this sexist asshat, women have been dealing with their lives for years. We helped build this country, fought for this country, defended this country, pioneered this country. Since when do we need Congress to help us figure out our medical problems? We have doctors with actual medical degrees who can advise us. Congress needs to stop minding everyones business and do the business that Congress was put in place to do, which has nothing to do with PMS or birth control. But, like many on the left, they really do think you aren’t capable or intelligent enough to handle your life without them. Insufferable arrogance!

Chick-fil-A is having the best day ever….thanks to people who actually believe in free speech, even if they disagree with a person’s ideology.

For those like John Mohler, 50, of Thornton, Colo., eating at Chick-fil-A on Wednesday was about defending free speech. Mohler said he doesn’t share Cathy’s belief–only his rights to air them.

“I’m not sure I agree with his position on gay marriage,” said Mohler, who drove to Englewood from downtown Denver on his lunch break. “But I applaud the owner for speaking his mind, and that’s why I’m here.”

In Chicago, throngs of supporters flocked to the lone Chick-fil-A, where the line of customers snaked through the entrance and around the corner. . . .

Further up the line, Jessica Cather, 29, Dana Haskins, 42, and Sarah Touhy, 43, all stressed that though they support same-sex marriage, they also support the right to believe what anyone wants to believe.

“We support tolerance on both sides,” Haskins said.

“Just because they don’t support gay marriage, it doesn’t make them a bad company,” Touhy said.

Another patron solicited donations to buy lunch for Alderman Joe Moreno, who made headlines last month for opposing a Chick-fil-A in his ward.

Linda Smith, 54, didn’t have time for the line. Instead, she gave someone else in line her money to spend to show her support. Smith said, “It doesn’t matter what the president of the company’s views are, as long as they don’t discriminate in hiring,” Smith said.

While pols don’t really get it, everyday Americans do. We are who we are, nothing will change that. Respecting the rights of all of us to say what we believe in, whether we disagree with those beliefs or not, is part of what makes us the greatest country on earth. Too bad our political betters have lost sight of that concept.  Remember, their rights end where yours begin, they have no power unless you give it to them.

      USA! USA!

      Photo in our local paper today showing lines out the door at our Chick-Fil-A. Of course the headline said it was people against gay marriage and missed the bigger point that it is citizens against government trying to shut out companies that don’t toe the politically correct line.

  1. srdem65

    Correct me if I’m wrong, but since when do birth control pills eliminate PMS or cramps?
    I always heard that giving birth usually eliminated cramping. ??

    Can we talk about men of a certain age and their problems with urination and the swollen prostrate glands? Let’s talk about how men are such wimps that they need the “blue pill” to, um, perform. I thought that woman who demanded that xxxsomeone leave their vagina alone was crude and demeaning, but I’m starting to feel that way too.

    My daughters don’t need. or want. you and your neighbors to pay for their birth control, and they don’t need some pompous creep to talk about their PMS or monthly cramps.

    SenReid is a sneaky, putrid little man. No one has the legal right to discuss my tax returns or to insinuate that I haven’t paid my taxes, and that goes for MrRomney’s rights too.
    All they’re doing is trying to get MrR to release his tax returns so that they can have some “fresh meat” to bbq and make a fuss over how much money he made.
    Me? I’m happy that our next President is a smart, hard working competent businessman.
    If he earned a bijillion dollars, then he’s the man we need to run this country.

      Srdem65 you are so right! I don’t need congress, the President, or the First Lady telling me how to live my life. I had res[onsible Irish parents who taught me the value of hard work, independence and striving for all that I can be as a human being. I don’t need a First Lady dictating to me that I need to eat my veggies or get out there and play an hour a day.

      The lame stream media doesn’t mind calling Romney a whimp, while never mentioning how Barry runs down the steps of Air Force One like a girlie girl, wears mom jeans and throws a ball even worse than a femine girl. They fail to mention his life membership with Man’s Country, a male bath house, or his documented male college lovers. I just want Romney to get tough and realize that being nice and civil to Barry isn’t going to work on a narcissistic asshat like Obutt. The Dim-o-cats only know how to play dirty by name calling, slamming other’s reputations and lying their hearts out and selling their souls to the Satin in order to get a vote. I am surprised the Obutts haven’t sold the furniture in the White House for $3.00 in order to get money for their presidential campaign.

      • When it comes to wimps, I doubt Romney has to ask Anne if he’s allowed to donate money like BO had to ask MO.

      • geoprof

        They called Bush, Sr. a wimp, too. It is a ploy they trot out constantly. Projection, all the time, projection… The Dims don’t pay their taxes, they all have a perennial wimp problem, and they lie. Then they project it onto others. Romney needs to just ignore those stupid requests for his tax returns, and he needs to ask them where ALL of Algae Boy’s records are.

    • A gift to big pharma…paying back for their investment in Dem campaigns. Big deals for big money by out of control Congress critters and lobbyists.

      • geoprof

        I was thinking that all day yesterday. How sexist was it of him to talk about women and their private monthly lives like they have some disease? It was over-the-top sexism. I thought libtards were all about how pregnancy and that monthly thing were not a disease, but a natural part of life? Women can’t do their jobs because they’re women?! The RNC needs to put out a new ad about the Dim war on women because the Dims are the ones waging the war.

  2. Private email accounts to do the country’s business….keeping the public in the dark…

    […]Other emails show then White House chief of staff Jim Messina using a non-governmental account to discuss language for the health care reform bill with a pharmaceutical industry lobbyist. In one message from March 2010, Messina assures the lobbyist he would overcome opposition from then House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to achieve more favorable legislation.

    “I will roll [P]elosi to get the 4 billion,” Messina told Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America lobbyist Jeffrey Forbes. “As you may have heard I am literally rolling over the house. But there just isn’t 8-10 billion.”

    Republicans say Messina’s emails from his personal account potentially violate the Presidential Records Act, which requires that all official executive branch communications be archived for public record.[…]

  3. GM pays $600 million to sponsor a European soccer team…$60 million a year for their logo on the team shirts.

    […]GM and its lending arm, Ally Bank, owe U.S. taxpayers $42 billion. The prospects of a full return on investment are looking grim. Ally is on the verge of bankruptcy and its attempt to spin off the mortgage division that sunk it in 2008 is under investigation. GM’s stock has fallen by more than 30 percent since its November 2011 initial public offering. It would have to triple in order for taxpayers to recover the entire $50 billion bailout.

    President Obama has touted the auto bailout as one of his biggest successes, while falsely claiming that the companies have paid back American taxpayers[…]

  4. sequestration…’R-words made us do it’ edition….here comes the class warfare crap again…

    […]“We’re not usually in the habit of hearing such partisan comments in what is really a bipartisan committee,” Turner said. “We don’t usually hear people throw around ‘Republican’ and ‘Democrat,’ but you have, very, very well. I want to commend you on your broken record of partisanship.”

    “Zients’ comments are pretty brazen in light of the $800 billion in wasted taxpayer dollars that was supposed to (but didn’t) stimulate the economy and which were, in effect, paid for by $800 billion in defense cuts,” said Gary Schmitt, resident scholar at the American Enterprise Institute. “And is he really suggesting the country’s national security be put at risk because the administration want to raise taxes (on more than the top 2 percent) in order to save PBS, Amtrak, and the Education Department?”[…]

  5. Nanny statists destroy more jobs…do no good…cause more problems than they solve…

    “Government paternalism is wreaking havoc on the economy. They have self-made entrepreneurs who refuse to play their games by the balls. The Nanny State is not a lifesaver. It is a self-serving serial job-killer.”

  6. So, why wasn’t the ginormous “stimulus” used to build infrastructure like it was supposed to? Now BO wants more “stimulus” to do what the first one was for…
    “Warren has been in the news lately as an inspiration for President Obama’s “you didn’t build that” comment. And Mr. Obama himself has been making somewhat similar points about infrastructure on the campaign trail. On July 27, the same day Warren announced her new ad, Mr. Obama, campaigning in Virginia, said, “I think it makes sense for us to take half the savings from war and let’s use it to do some nation-building here at home. Let’s make sure that we’re rebuilding our roads and our bridges. Let’s build broadband lines into rural communities and improve our wireless networks and rebuild our ports and airports. We can put people to work right now doing the work that America needs done.””

  7. Why are we subsidizing those preachy hypocrites in Hollywood? Do the taxpayers owe the multi-billion industry subsidies?

    ….”why film subsidies are killing the entertainment industry and hurting the economy, the urgent need for the studios to adapt to new technology more quickly, and why he describes his politics as “more libertarian than anything else.”

  8. Congrats to all the US Olympians who medaled. To those who haven’t, we’re proud of you too. Not many of us could put up with the rigorous training it takes to reach the Olympics.

    • I adore the Olympics. Every time I hear our National Anthem I get a bit teary eyed. I love our country and am so proud of our athletes. (Of course, I’m proud of al athletes for representing their countries in the name of peace and goodwill.) Go U.S.A.!

    • geoprof

      Wait! You can’t say that. They didn’t earn those medals. Some nanny-ing governmental hack got them there.
      Sorry, lost my head there for a minute… I’m getting memes confused these days. sarc/

      • LOL 😀

    • LOL, didn’t Michelle tell the athletes to WIN ! No clue what it takes to make the Olympic teams, there are no losers, imho 😀

  9. Still spending what isn’t there….

    […]The federal deficit is higher than it has been since the 1940s, in the years immediately after World War II.

    A new visual from the “Face the Facts USA,” a non-partisan election project from George Washington University, shows the federal deficit has risen significantly under President Barack Obama, and that the government is increasingly spending money it doesn’t have.[…]

    • srdem65

      The argument of who built what is so convoluted that it is almost impossible to define.
      If the gummint built anything, they had to get their money from the taxpayers who got their money by working for the business community who also paid taxes………..

  10. The Original

    One more reason that Obama must be voted out of the White House.

    Come to think of it Birdies, I can’t think of one good thing that Obama has done for this country. Not one single thing. Pointing out all the reasons why he should be voted out of office is really a mind numbing task. It would be so much easier to list the good things he’s done.

    I’ll start
    1.

    • He’s helped us reevalute George W. Bush one generation earlier than expected.

      He inspired the Tea Party.

      He reaffirmed the belief that a President should be substance over style.

      • He disenfranchised a whole bunch of Democrats

  12. Francine

    Obama inspired Birdie to build the first bird nest. Now we have Lynn II, who is an AWESOME nest builder! This is where I come to get current and correct information about the Obama administration and other political issues.

  14. Even little Obama non-stories TICK ME OFF …. just reminds people they can’t afford sending their kids to summer camp much less the gourmet chocolate …. for MO too !

    http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/politics/2012/08/obama-picks-chocolate-for-sasha-malia-care-packages/

    • Hershey’s Special Dark is about as grand as it gets here…. who gives a glorious damn if his kids are in summer camp…mine isn’t. prissy bi**h that he is!!

    • Carole

      Well gee, let’s just forget that Mooch went to the Olympics on the pretext of getting the youth of today to eat their veggies and exercise to get the fat off their behindies. Just watch the Obamas stuffing their faces full of fries, ice cream, fatty food and sugery sweets, butt you “folks” eat your veggies and play one hour a day, while we vacay and eat what we want. Come on you peons (folks) spread the wealth, while we sread our fat fannies eating what we want on your tax dollars!! Hey Mooch, who is home at the White House weedsing, hoing and watering your gardens? Granny Marian?

  15. “Sen. Obama supported layoff warnings; now sees no need”

    http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2012/aug/1/obama-favored-stronger-layoff-warnings-07/

    Jerk.

    • “The Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act requires employers with 100 workers or more to give 60 days’ notice of a plant closing or mass layoffs. And in 2007, then-Sen. Obama urged Congress to beef up the law, arguing that employers were ignoring it and the government wasn’t enforcing it.”

      It would bring his re-election plans to a screeching halt if they followed the law.

  16. Carole

    Who is the real whimp? I love Granny Jan.
