Getting Cained

Bill Clinton was accused of rape, sexual assault, and impeached for lying under oath about an affair with Monica Lewinsky.

Liberal Media?  Crickets.

Barack Obama wrote a book in which he admitted using cocaine and marijuana

Liberal Media? Crickets.

Someone leaks to Polit(bur)ico that Herman Cain was accused of sexual harassment in 1992.

Liberal Media? ON FIRE!!

However, to date, no one has identified the larger problem that has surfaced in light of the Herman Cain Sexual Harassment kerfuffle:

Herman Cain - 01

The real problem? No one in Cain’s campaign has enough political prowess to think, This story will come out; we better get in front of it; we better time the release; we better choreograph the response; we can make this work for us.’

No. Mr. Cain’s staff did none of that, and it appears possible that the release of this news came through a supporter of another Republican in the Presidential Primary contest.

How adolescent is Mr. Cain to think that something such as this would not come out?  How juvenile is his staff to not prepare for its broadcast? What other skeletons will jar his campaign?

Sadly, while we really like the straight-talking Cain, he may be ripe for more scandals… …as a third sexual harassment accuser is coming to light.  But, beyond that, his ‘chops‘ continue to be less than impressive.

I am no fan of the politics of this company’s owner.  But, your humble blogger was amused by a design from T-Shirt Hell today:

I may not already hate the next president, but I do hate the fact that I don’t have a good Conservative, well-versed, intelligent candidate to get behind!

Occupy Pepper Spray

The Evil Capitalists Big City Democrat Administrations are cracking down on the #OccupyWherever gatherings across the nation requiring them to move out of their Occupied Parks for reasons of Safety and Health… …and the liberals neighbors are even sick of them.

It’s sad. On many subjects, I wholeheartedly agree with their concerns and issues… …especially crony capitalism.  However, most of them don’t even know that crony capitalism is the real problem – not the free market.

Here are some of my favorite stories about the movement:

A Triumph Of The Free Market

In Cape Girardeau, Missouri, on April 5, 2011, the do-gooders once again knew better… …and that there needed to be a government-enforced ban on smoking in Cape’s restaurants and bars.  The do-gooders (aka liberals who assail freedom at every turn) were able to get a smoking-ban initiative on the Cape ballot and the vote ensued.

Activists like Dale Humphries were ‘reflective’ after hearing that Cape Girardeau voters rejected the ban by 52% to 48%.  Sadly, 48% of Cape Girardeau voters agree with the tyranny of mob mentality.

The Mayor was torn, but came down on the side of freedom:

Mayor Harry Rediger said Tuesday he had mixed feelings about the election results. He is not a smoker and understands that smoking is a health hazard, he said. But, in the end, his concerns about government interference were paramount.

“To me, this proposal overstepped its bounds,” he said. “It should, in my opinion, have been a business owner’s decision how it wants to treat its business.”

The result? Businesses were free to decide for themselves.  And, a few weeks ago, a business in Cape did just that.

As a Libertarian / Conservative, I was thrilled to see the local Pasta House Company restaurant make their own decision to enforce a smoking ban.  As a smoker, one knows they need to go to another business, such as Bella Italia, who currently allows smokers to enjoy a completely legal product.

This is the Free Market at work.  I praise the 52% of Cape Girardeau residents and the city leaders that believe in that Freedom.

Motorcycles Must Be Outlawed

Reported today, NHTSA has embarked on its latest tyranny of requiring the installation of monitoring devices in all new automobiles – your unelected regulatory oppressors at work.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) is expected to issue new regulations next month, that will require a black box style data recorder be fitted in all new cars.

Similar in concept to the familiar black boxes used in commercial aircraft for decades, the boxes are expected to record information about speed, seat belt use and brake application in the final seconds leading up to an accident, the data can be retrieved for later analysis. – Dvice.com

Now, compliments of Nanny State bureaucracy, Big Brother will be able to retrieve a log of your seat-belt usage for reporting to “the State”, and you can be ticketed ‘after-the-fact’.

The irony?

I can step out of my Ford F150, mount a Harley Davidson or Ninja Motorcycle, head down the same side-road or Interstate as I can in the Ford F150… …with only a helmet between my body (moving at 75 mph) and the pavement.  More irony? In states like Illinois, I can go sans helmet.

h/t http://harley-davidson-parts-catalog.com

Well! This can’t stand.  The do-gooders must intervene and protect me from my own self-destructive behavior.  Motorcycles must be outlawed!

And, damn-it, there are so may ways that humans can injure themselves, we must outlaw them all:

  • Parachuting
  • Jogging
  • Bull-Riding
  • Bacon-Covered Hotdogs
  • Skiing
  • Cigars
  • Incandescent Lighting
  • Cooking

But, since it’s already illegal to operate a human conveyance device without a seat-belt, outlawing motorcycles is certainly the low-hanging fruit.

Thank you to the automotive and insurance lobby for your assistance on this assault on our 4th Amendment Rights and our freedoms.

Petraeus To The CIA

What a difference a boss makes.

General Petraeus, heroic architect of the victory in Irag, is now moving to lead the CIA… …as glowingly reported by the New York Times.

But, under the employ of George W. Bush, General Petraeus was blasted in the infamous MoveOn.org ad “General Betray Us”.  The NYT even gave a 55% discount to the MoveOn.org that was not in line with their policies.

h/t NYT / BareNakedIslam

How will Hillary Clinton be able to work with someone who requires a “willing suspension of disbelief” when testifying in Congress.  How will she question him at length as to why they haven’t located Osama Bin Laden (then 6) now 10 years since the 9/11 attacks?

h/t NY Sun

But, just like if you want to find a racist pastor, all you have to do is follow Obama to church… …if you want to find a hypocrite, talk to a Liberal.

Now, he’s all okee-dokee because the Liberals are in charge.

A Tale Of Two Brains

Yahoo blogger and former Newsweek-worth-a-dollar White House correspondent Holly Baily reports on a study commissioned by scientist actor Colin Firth where the findings cite differences in the brains of Liberals and Conservatives.  Why do I suspect that the Liberal brain will come off sounding better?

h/t http://www.freedigitalphotos.net/

Holly writes, “Using data from MRI scans, researchers at the University College London found that self-described liberals have a larger anterior cingulate cortex–a gray matter of the brain associated with understanding complexity. Meanwhile, self-described conservatives are more likely to have a larger amygdala, an almond-shaped area that is associated with fear and anxiety.”

One might think a Conservative will cling to their guns and their bibles.

Funny thing on the way to Holly’s links.  When you follow her links, the words “understand” and “complex” are nowhere to be found.  Sorry, I wasn’t going to pay $31.50 to read the full article from Science Direct.  In one of her links, Conservatives were said to be “sensitive to threat or anxiety in the face of uncertainty”.  Sounds a little different than “associated with fear and anxiety”, or is it just me?

I guess if we’re going to spin things, we could look up the Liberal’s Anterior Cingulate Cortex and find that “neuroimaging studies have also identified the ACC’s involvement in transient mood changes, depression and anxiety disorders”.  At least I wouldn’t have to add words that aren’t in the article.

When we look into the larger Amygdala in Conservatives, we can find a Boston study that indicates that those with larger Amygdala are “social butterflies” and “live in larger and more complex groups”.

“The study examined 58 adults, between 19 and 83 years of age, using brain scanners and a survey that measured participants’ social networks. Researchers found the size of other brain regions was not correlated with the size of the social network.”

Thanks Holly for your article; we’re sure you didn’t mean to introduce any subjective bias into the objective science.

And thanks to commenter Benjamin for this old joke:

A Cannibal goes to the butcher.  He sees lawyer brains @ 8.99/lb, doctors brains @ 10.59/lb and politicians brains @ 39.50/lb. He asks, “Why so high for politician’s brains?”

Butcher replies,  “Do you know how many politicians have to die to get a pound of brains?”

Why Ban Foreign Laws?

Citizens and legislators that wish to ban the use and application of Foreign Laws in U.S.Federal and State Courts have been derided and decried as racist xenophobes.

In Missouri, at least to legislators have introduced such legislation Here is the text of one of the bills.

Islamophobia, Racism, Xenophobia!  The 3 favorite Cards of the Left!

h/t kentlaw.edu

From the Kansas City Star, “This is an attack on Islam and clearly an Islamophobia bill,” said Jamilah Nasheed, a St. Louis Democrat who is Muslim. “It’s a bill that’s being pushed by ignorant people that know nothing about Islam.”

And, from the Boston Herald, “An attorney for the St. Louis chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations said the U.S. Constitution already prohibits religion from being used as a basis for laws.

“It’s a political stunt being done to fan the flames of intolerance, nothing more,” attorney Jim Hacking said.

Yes, Curtman and his allies are clearly wrong to think that a Missouri court might consult religious law or other foreign law to decide cases.  There is certainly no evidence of that.

Except…

From Human Events, “On March 3, Hillsborough Circuit Judge Richard Nielsen announced that he would decide the case by consulting shari’a law to determine whether the arbitration was conducted properly, and should therefore be binding.  Only if his adventure in Islamic scholarship determines the arbitration was invalid will he revert to using Florida civil law to determine the ultimate outcome of the case.”

Only AFTER looking at Shari’a law will the judge apply Florida Civil Law?!?!?

And, from our Supreme Court Justices…

Supreme Court

h/t huffingtonpost.com

In USA Today, “Writing for the majority in a landmark decision supporting gay civil rights, Justice Anthony Kennedy noted that the European Court of Human Rights and other foreign courts have affirmed the “rights of homosexual adults to engage in intimate, consensual conduct.””

In the Huffington Post, “Breyer said there are those who complain about the high court potentially looking at what other countries do when they are resolving cases involving U.S. law.

“I say that’s a wonderful political debate. It’s good, but it’s pretty irrelevant because when I do read things, I can read what I want,” Breyer said.

If judges in another country with similar laws have a similar case, a judge should be able to consider how they solved it, Breyer said in remarks at the Johns Hopkins University Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International Studies.

Clearly, there is plenty to worry about from our Supreme Court down to State Level courts.  Yes, Missourians should fear the activism of jurists on many counts, and kudos to the Missouri Legislators who have the foresight to fight this problem proactively!

Immoral To Cut Spending

Today’s E-Mail from your favorite top leftist organization (has ‘Move’ in its title) decries spending cuts by the Republicans in Congress as immoral efforts to take money out of the mouths of babes:

“What kind of country cuts food aid to hungry pregnant women and children in the middle of an economic crisis—while giving a giant tax break to billionaires?

Seriously. WTF?!

The Republicans are winning the battle over the budget, hands down, even though what they’re fighting for is, put simply, immoral.”

Personal Pregnancy Blog

I agree.  Seriously.  WTF?!?

The Left has won the argument over the past 50 years by playing to emotion; the above is a perfect example taken from that playbook.  They also count on their sheep being less than thoughtful — okay, ignorant.

Just a couple of quick thoughtful questions to those they hope to be ignorant.

  1. What tax breaks were given to billionaires?  None.  Death taxes were re-instituted (raised) on the wealthy and otherwise tax rates were kept the same.  NO tax breaks were given to billionaires.
  2. If the food aid to hungry pregnant women and children is so important, why is the Left fighting so adamantly to continue to fund NPR?

But, that’s using ‘logic’ against the Left’s ’emotional’ arguments.  And, we will lose again.

So, if the Left is indeed so worried about the children, I emotionally ask these:

  • Why is the Left fighting so hard to continue to spend the labors of generations unborn?  Are the people of this generation so pathetic that we must take from future generations to pad our own selfish lives?
  • Why is the Left fighting so hard to kill off that new generation of taxpayers through their IMMORAL abortion policies? What about that baby, yes baby, that had it’s spinal cord severed to kill it before it came out of the womb?  Or that baby that had it’s heartbeat snuffed out by a Leftist Abortionist that took it’s unborn life?

The Left has the corner on the market of immorality.  Any time they cry wolf about the Republicans’ activities, the hypocrisy meter spins off its dial!
