Friday Bits and Pieces

obamadetroit  Not to worry, the “blue model” is working out so well for the Dems, (Obamacare) we’ll all look like Detroit and be in the same position very soon. Our government is spending more than it takes in, just like Detroit, on pork and bribes in every single bill that’s passed, corporate welfare (GE, GM, Solyndra), all great examples, with just 50% of taxpaying workers footing the bill for a failed experiment in social and political engineering.

Progressive politicians, wonks, and activists can only blame big corporations and other liberal bogeymen for so long. The truth is that corrupt machine politics in a one-party system devoted to the blue social model wrecked an entire city and thousands of lives beyond repair. The sooner blues come to terms with this reality, the greater chance other cities will have of avoiding Detroit’s fate.

MO is so happy she got to sleep in her “own bed” in Chicago. She and the girls attended a Beyoncé concert to add to the festive homecoming atmosphere. The real treat for MO was not the concert, it was meeting with young people at an event stressing education and employment. Yeah…..riiiight!

While the concert may have been a fun night  out, it wasn’t the formal reason for the First Lady’s visit to their hometown. 

She joined Chicago’s Mayor Rahm Emanuel, who  was her husband’s first Chief of Staff, at an education and employment program  event for area high school students on Thursday.

‘I am thrilled to be here. I mean, in  addition to giving me an excuse to come home and sleep in my own bed, it’s  really a treat for me to spend time with you guys,’ she said in her opening  remarks.

Does anyone doubt the reason for Obama to give his “little speech” on Trayvon at a presser today was for the purpose of deflection? Especially when it was discovered one of his IRS appointees is up to his green shade in the targeting of conservative groups. Name that Bureaucrat;

Hull said he had tried to tackle the growing pile of applications, but he was told they must first go through a multi-tier review that involved Lerner’s office and that of William Wilkins, the IRS’s chief counsel. Wilkins, a political appointee of President Obama’s, has been involved in Democratic politics as a staffer and campaign donor for over 30 years. Wilkins’s office did not have its first meeting with IRS officials on the tea-party applications until August 2011; at that point the applications had been pending for so long that it was decided that the IRS needed to demand updated information from the tea-party groups, further slowing down the process. Hull says that the behavior of IRS management during this whole process was “unusual.”

But, we know Obama’s behavior isn’t unusual, it’s par for the course. When scandals emerge, create and foment division to take the heat off him. His “little statement” was more of the same tactic, talking out of both sides of his mouth.

Though Obama did not address the protests directly, he identified with their theme–namely, frustration with a justice system that is characterized by Sharpton, and now by the president, as racially biased. Though only 24% of Americans agree that Zimmerman was motivated by race, many demonstrators have disagreed–vehemently.

Obama isn’t fooling anyone…..if he had a son, he would be living the same luxe lifestyle. It’s just pathetic the first “Black President” is such a hypocrite and liar and spends so much time dividing the country’s citizens because of his own lack of ethics and unprincipled actions.

Alas,  none of us should hold our breath waiting for Obama to take a stand and call for  an end to the violence in the wake of the Zimmerman verdict. Obama has been  fomenting racial tension since his community organizing and Jeremiah Wright days  — that is who he is and what he does. But it certainly does his people little  good to take to the streets like a bunch of wild animals while the rest of civil  society looks on appalled at what they are witnessing. As our streets are  looking more and more like Egypt’s Tahrir Square (replete with Martin  supporters’ jihad-like  threats to behead Zimmerman), I am starting to feel less and less,  to paraphrase Michelle, proud to be an American.

Spent the last couple of days with a few neighbors. We are having a rash of break-ins in the area. One of the break-ins was particularly disturbing as the wife of one of the men was home and asleep in their bedroom while the thugs robbed the place. Kareem, husband, is so beyond furious. We know who the thieves are, we know where they live, one of their ‘facilitators’ got nervous and spilled his guts. Guess what….they all “look like Trayvon” too. The youngest is a baby face 13 year old, the others  are in their late teens. Their ‘facilitator’ is a known car thief who managed to get off by turning on the other 35 members of the car theft ring.  Every single victim of this current bunch of thugs is black.
The minute we get one bunch arrested and off the street, another crop of thugs pops up to take their place. Inevitably they all “look like Trayvon” and they all belong to the local gangbanging wannabees.

  1. Yes, I am cynical enough to believe this speech was a ploy to keep more important issues from the public domain….

    A part of me cannot help but think that the only reason President Obama addressed this story so personally today was to get these other headlines off the table, and thrown down into the memory hole:

    Is it me only, but did Barry look like he was “under the influence of something” when he gave his speech about out of both sides of his mouth about the Zimmerman/Martin trial outcome?

    I can’t tell you how much I despise this man.

    • He certainly hasn’t given us very much reason to like him…..

  4. OMG….where do they find these people?

    Aquilina, who granted the restraining order, clearly was irked.

    Prior to her ruling on Friday, she criticized the Snyder administration and Attorney General’s Office for what appeared to be hasty action to outflank pension board attorneys.

    “It’s cheating, sir, and it’s cheating good people who work,” the judge told assistant Attorney General Brian Devlin. “It’s also not honoring the (United States) president, who took (Detroit’s auto companies) out of bankruptcy.”

    Aquilina said she would make sure President Obama got a copy of her order.

    “I know he’s watching this,” she said, predicting the president ultimately will have to take action to make sure existing pension commitments are honored.

    “I know he’s watching this.” She’s essentially threatening to tattle on the governor by faxing a copy of her order to Our National Father, whose dignity is on the line as the fate of America’s most notorious experiment in pure progressive government is decided. They should be grateful she didn’t hold them in contempt under the Dishonoring Obama clause of the Constitution.

    The only reason people lock their car doors when Obama walks by is they are afraid he’ll tax them to death…

    Barry is only interested in starting a civil war using the race card. He really sees himself as the world leader, leading all countries to be ” unified as a one nation country on eath.” Mooch and Barry schmoozed the military families in order to gain their loyalty to their cause of a civil army. What is the best way to get already trained personnel for a civil army? Well it is by schmoozing US military personnel. Barry’s goal is to use the Zimmerman/Martin case to force Americans to give up their arms and leave them without the ability to defend their freedoms and to have a take over such as what happened in Germany under Hitler. That is what Barry and Holder are working towards, the fall of America, and the dream of their ideology of a one world country ruled by marxism and possibly Islamic laws.
