Liberal logic

You'd think after a while, I'd get used to liberals saying and doing stupid things. But, I really don't get used to it. It still amazes me that people can be so stupid and still manage to walk upright.

It's sort of like a Road Runner cartoon. Wile E. Coyote thinks he's a "Super Genius" but comes up with some hair-brained plan that ends with him ordering rocket-powered roller skates and blowing himself up or splattering himself against a canyon wall.

You know he's going to do it. You know his logic is flawed. But you enjoy watching him make an idiot of himself time after time.

Watching liberals is that way. Except, Wile E. Coyote was a creation of the hilariously twisted minds of Chuck Jones and Michael Maltese. Today's liberals? Living cartoons, except there are too many of them running loose, with way too many holding elected office.

Still, there's a little bit of that "watching the Coyote" thing that keeps me paying attention to what liberals say and do. Their logic is ... Wile E. Coyote-style Super Genius.

For example:
  • Liberals think that early snow and cold weather is a sign of Global Warming ™.
  • Liberals believe that conservatives who support Herman Cain do so because conservatives hate blacks.
  • Liberals think that Americans shouldn't own guns, but think it's okay to run guns to Mexican drug lords.
  • Liberals believe that the TEA Party is bad because they could be violent, even though they're not violent.
  • Liberals think that the Occupy groups are good, despite their violence.
  • Liberals believe that the solution to problems caused by government is more government.
  • Liberals think that killing an unborn baby is fine, but executing a convicted killer is bad.
  • Liberals believe in Affirmative Action, in which blacks are treated different than whites, because blacks have suffered in the past by being treated different than whites.
  • Liberals think you shouldn't impose your morality on them, while imposing their immorality on you.
Despite the obvious fallacies in their logic, liberals get up every day, try to live according to these beliefs, fail miserably, and then do it all again.

Liberals. Super geniuses.

Who's gonna lose, week 9

The 9th week of the 2011 college football season is upon us, and we're getting closer and closer to the big showdown in January between the SEC champion and this year's victim. Heading into the week, there are 8 unbeaten teams: two in the SEC and 6 trying to earn a spot in the game against one of them.

Except for LSU and Alabama, the top two teams, the other six don't play each other, so there could be as many as 7 undefeated teams at the end of the season. Personally, I hope that happens. Anything that helps make the case for a playoff is a good thing. If they had a playoff, Houston, Boise State, Clemson, or any of the others that are likely to get left out would truly have a chance. But the NCAA won't listen to me.

It's time to check out the schedule and see what big games are scheduled. We'll look at the matchups between ranked teams, games involving teams from my state, Frank J's state, and Harvey's state. And a few of the other games where the game is the only game on the boob tube.

If you don't like college football, you must be a Ron Paul supporter. If you do, let's see if we can figure out who's gonna lose this week.

Who said college football was fair?

As the 2011 college football season winds down and upsets are knocking out some of the sports heads' favorites, the TV faces are scrambling to find a team to rally behind. And they seem to have chosen Stanford.

The ESPN has an article up talking about how Stanford compares to the best in the SEC.

And guess who Sports Illustrated is talking about? That's right. Stanford.

With losses by ESPN favorites Oklahoma and Wisconsin, the sports media is trying to find another team to tout. It's looking like Stanford may be their pick. They certainly don't want Number 4 Boise State, who will have spent the entire year clubbing baby seals. And they don't believe in Number 3 Oklahoma State, the only Big 12 team in the mix, nor do they believe in Number 5 Clemson.

Look for all the sports heads to start talking about how amazing that Stanford team is. If they run the table, look for them to jump Clemson, Boise State, and Oklahoma State so they can face the SEC champ.

It's happened before. Remember the 1977 season? With New Year's Day 1978 losses by Number 1 Texas and Number 2 Oklahoma, you'd figure Number 3 Alabama would slip right into the championship. But Number 5 Notre Dame, the media darling, jumped the Crimson Tide to claim the top spot.

How about the end of the 1983 season? Number 1 Nebraska and Number 2 Texas lost. Does Number 3 Auburn move to the top? Nope, Number 5 Miami does.

In 2004, Auburn was unbeaten and Number 3 behind Southern California and Oklahoma. The top two had held those spots the entire season, while Auburn opened the season at Number 18, the lowest of 5 SEC teams in the season-opening poll. Southern Cal and Oklahoma each won 2 games against ranked teams during the season, while Auburn won 4. But, being the media darlings, Southern Cal and Oklahoma played for the BCS title.

And look at the 2007 season. At Thanksgiving, Georgia was sitting at Number 4, behind Number 1 Missouri, Number 2 West Virginia, and Number 3 Ohio State. The Bulldogs needed two of those teams to lose. Missouri and West Virginia did. Does Georgia move up to Number 2? No, they drop to Number 5, after Number 7 LSU, Number 6 Virginia Tech, and Number 9 Oklahoma jump them, shutting Georgia out of the BCS championship.

So, this year, if Stanford runs the table -- and they just might; they don't play anybody worth a damn -- look for them to somehow make it to the game against the SEC champ. And then get blown out.

Would that be fair to Oklahoma State, Boise State, or Clemson? No. But who said college football was fair?

Certainly not Alabama, Auburn, or Georgia.

Have you seen the new ad from the Herman Cain campaign?

[Direct link]

CBS calls it "bizarre" and notes that the ad is, currently, unlisted. Which means you can't go to the Cain YouTube channel and find it unless you know where to look.

ABC takes the opportunity to run down a list of Cain campaign staff with "interesting" backgrounds.

The Atlantic asks, "For real?"

Rather than go on, let me sum up the reaction: the ad generated a lot of criticism from people who already didn't like Herman Cain.

I'm not a smoker, so it didn't particularly appeal to me. But smokers don't like being criticized, just like everybody else.

Obama smokes, but hides it. Cain's campaign manager smokes, and posts it on YouTube.

I'm wondering how this is going to play out.


Everybody is talking taxes. Okay, not everybody. But some of the major Republican candidates are.

Herman Cain has a plan ... two actually ... to remake the tax code. One is his 999 plan. If you keep reading about 999, though, you'll see that the long-term plan is to convert to what some call the Fair Tax. 999 involves income, corporate, and sales tax. The Fair Tax is simply a national sales tax.

Now, Rick Perry has come out with his own plan: a 20% flat tax rate for everybody. It's an income tax, not a sales tax.

Waste of time. And here's why.

Changing the tax code won't do any good if the government keeps spending. They want to talk income, when the problem is outgo.
"Captain Smith, the lookout has spotted an ice berg dead ahead!"

"Very good, Mister Murdoch. Have the deck chairs rearranged immediately!"

"Aye, aye, sir."
If we don't cut spending, then 999 will become 20-20-20, then 30-30-30, then 50-50-50, and so on. Or, Perry's flat tax won't be 20%. It'll be 40%. Then 60% And so on.

We've got to cut spending. But that's hard. We can't handle hard. Never have been able to.

[Direct link]

Oh. Well, maybe we were able to do hard things. Maybe we still are. If we only decided to.

But if the whiney tittie babies that are occupying Wall Street, or sitting in the cabinet, or sitting in the Oval Office were around earlier in our nation's history, things would be different. And not good different.
"Go to the moon? Imperialist! I'll make a movie about it. Now give me a sandwich. Extra mayo." -- An nameless Hollywood filmmaker.
"You've brought us into this war under false pretenses. Germany didn't attack us. Japan did! And that's because of our support for Jews! We need to bring our troops home now!" -- An unnamed Texas Congressman.
"That's just like an evil Republican president. Next he'll be using troops to seize property from people. What? He suspended habias corpus? Somebody needs to take Lincoln out." -- An unnamed Democrat
"Look at those awful Tea Partiers! It's not safe to visit Boston Harbor any more. I tell you, they're going to get violent one day!" -- An unnamed government worker
The whiners and complainers need to shut the hell up. And we need to make some hard choices. It will be difficult, and hurt at times. But, like exercise, that's when you know it's working.

But, until we quit rearranging the deck chairs, we're going to crash head on into that ice berg. Then, folks won't be talking about pulling the car out of the ditch; they'll be trying to get the ship off the bottom of the ocean.

Blazing Republicans

Now showing!

[Direct link]

Who's gonna lose, week 8

As this year's college football season creeps along, you'd think that none of the games matter until November, when Alabama and LSU square off, then in December when Oklahoma and Oklahoma State do their battle. That is, if all you did was listen to the hype.

Truth of the matter is that there is no such thing as a meaningless college football game. If you don't believe me, go ask the players. Games that don't lead up to the so-called national championship game in January do matter a great deal. And that so-called national championship game really isn't, until they implement a playoff. I have the perfect solution to that. I've talked about it in past seasons, and might share my brilliance with you again this year. But not this week.

If you don't like college football, then there's little hope for you. If you are a fan, you might not agree with this week's picks. But that's part of the fun of being a fan.

I can't not vote

There are still some people that don't like any of the Republicans that are running. Or, at least, don't like the ones polling the best.

Currently leading the pack is Atlanta businessman Herman Cain. He's the guy who has no chance whatsoever, despite leading the polls. Some people don't like him because he has no experience in politics, except for losing a Senate race (2nd in a 3-man primary). He's too conservative for moderates. He's too black (color) for some liberals and not black (racial stereotype) enough for other liberals. And he has too much testosterone for Sarah Palin or Michele Bachmann fans. He's trending up.

Then there's Mitt Romney, who everybody hates and the media and GOP establishment has declared the frontrunner, even though he currently polls in second place. Front-runner must not mean what I thought it meant. He's too liberal for anyone who's not a liberal. He's trending neither up nor down.

Rick Perry was the great hope before he ran. Once he declared he was running, suddenly nobody liked him any more. His being a former Democrat hurts him with conservatives. Supporting some benefits for illegals hurts him too. After briefly leading the polls, he's now third or fourth, depending on the poll. But he's trending down.

There's Newt Gingrich, who was written off months ago but is in 3rd or 4th place, depending on the poll, and trending up. He lead the conservative takeover of Congress back in the Clinton years, but committed the unforgivable sins of sitting on a couch with Nancy Pelosi and supporting a RINO over a TEA Party candidate in New York in 2010. Plus, he pisses people off by being smarter than them. I can relate.

Then there's Ron Paul, who's been nuts for years and keeps getting nuts following him. Including two children that share my DNA. Kids. What are you gonna do? Anyway, Ron Paul has really crazy followers who either take too much drugs or not enough medication. He's got like 3 really good ideas and 800 really nutty ones. His followers focus on the 3 good ones when they argue, then slip up and tell you how evil Jews are and how the Twin Towers were blown up by George Bush. Like I said, crazy. He's trending up.

Michele Bachmann is trending down. She's like the hot chick you wanted to date, then while sitting in the restaurant, you realize that she talks to the silverware. She's still hot, but you keep thinking she's going to go all Glenn Close on you and you'll find your rabbit in the kitchen.

Jon Huntsman is still hanging around because some libertarians -- and a bunch of liberaltarians -- like him. Probably because he thinks pot should be given out instead of condoms. Or something. I was never quite sure what he was saying. Philosophically, he's what you get if you cross Ron Paul and Mitt Romney. Now, go get that image out of your head.

Sarah Palin and Chris Christie aren't running this year, though they still have fans thinking they will.

Now, despite the things I listed about the candidates that different people don't like, there are groups that like each of these candidates, and like them a lot. Way too much, for some.

There are some Ron Paul or Rick Perry or Sarah Palin or Michele Bachman fans that say they won't vote for anyone but their candidate. They focus on the things about the candidates that they don't like (can you count to 999?) and say how unqualified that makes that candidate.

"I'll never vote for Newt Gingrich!" or "If they nominate Herman Cain, I won't vote" or "RONPAUL!!!1!!!" or the like.

Honestly, there are things about each candidate that I don't like. Been that way since the 1976 election, the first where I was old enough to vote.

There are some candidates I really like (though, like I said, not everything they say), some I like okay, and some that I really don't like. But, come November 2012, I'm going to vote.

Over the last several months, and again Thursday, someone said to me that if the election came down to a certain candidate (rhymes with Sherman Payne) against Obama, he wouldn't vote. Others have said something similar in the past.

I couldn't do that. I couldn't not vote.

You see, if we end up with a candidate that we don't really like -- I won't name names, but say his name rhymes with Ritt Momney -- I still can't sit the election out.

Think about it. Who will vote for those candidates? People that really like them. What kind of people would really like Barack Obama or some polarizing Republican? You already think the people that support those candidates are nuts. Well, yeah, they might be. And they'll vote.

I may have two crazy candidates from which to choose, but I would rather choose than let a bunch of crazies choose between the crazies. I'll vote for the least worst, and I'm responsible if that candidate wins. Plus, I'll know I did everything I could to prevent the most worst candidate from winning.

I can't not vote. I may not like the final choices, but I'm not going to go off crying like a little tittie baby who got his toy took from him.

I can deal with it.

Who's gonna lose, week 7

Throughout the first six weeks of the season, our perfect record remains intact. Some of the teams got the results wrong, of course, but our picks were, as always, on the mark.

As the season progresses, more interesting matchups will occur, as ranked teams face ranked teams, and traditional rivalries show up on the schedule. This is the time of the year that real Americans enjoy -- especially college football fans.

Unless you'd rather join the football-hating un-American Occupy Wall Street crowd, you're ready for another episode of us picking who's gonna lose.

Caption contest!

Did you see the pictures on Drudge last night?

This deserve a caption.

The winner gets ... HIGH PRAISE!

Okay, try anyway.


After the 2008 election, some people who supported Barack Obama told me they were shocked -- SHOCKED! -- when he actually did some of the things he said he'd do in the campaign.

When I challenged them with, "Didn't he say he'd do that?" the usual response was, "Well, I didn't think he would."

I don't want to be that guy. But, I'm thinking I may turn out to be that guy.

I'm supporting Herman Cain. The parallel with Barack Obama should be obvious.

No, not the black thing. Cain grew up black, Obama was raised by a bunch of crazy white folk. If elected, Cain would be America's first black president.

No, what I'm talking about is: 9-9-9.

I like a lot of things about Herman Cain, but I don't like the 9-9-9 plan.

On the face of it, that seems odd, since that's all you hear about Cain.

The two biggest things I like about Cain are:
  • He's a successful businessman, and we need someone in the White House that understands business. Without that, the economy will, well, do what it's doing today.
  • He's a conservative. That means that, when situations arise, I'll more than likely be satisfied with how he handles it.
Those two items are the most important thing about Cain. When compared to the other candidates, he's strongest on these two qualifications. And that's enough for me.

But, what I don't like is the 9-9-9 plan. Or the 9 part. No, that 9. The other one. No, that that one. The other one. Yes, that one. The national sales tax.

Here's the plan:
  • Business Flat Tax – 9%
    • Gross income less all investments, all purchases from other businesses and all dividends paid to shareholders.
    • Empowerment Zones will offer additional deductions for payroll employed in the zone.
  • Individual Flat Tax – 9%.
    • Gross income less charitable deductions.
    • Empowerment Zones will offer additional deductions for those living and/or working in the zone.
  • National Sales Tax – 9%.
    • This gets the Fair Tax off the sidelines and into the game.
Flat tax rates for business and individuals is a good thing. If you make twice the money, you pay twice the taxes. It's that national sales tax that I don't like.

Opening up one more way for the government to get our money? That's a no-go. You start a new tax, you'll never get rid of it. It took over 100 years for the government to stop billing you for the Spanish-American War.

The saving grace is, a national sales tax may be unconstitutional. If there will be a tax on everything sold, what about land? If you sell property, does the national sales tax apply? If so, it could run into the same problems brought up in Pollock v. Farmers' Loan & Trust Co., which ruled that income tax was unconstitutional, and was the impetus for the 16 Amendment to the Constitution. A national sales tax may require another amendment. And I don't want another amendment; every time somebody touches the Constitution, they screw things up. Well, not every time, but in the last 100 years. We don't need another 18th Amendment fiasco, for instance.

The thing most people know about Herman Cain, 9-9-9 plan, is just about the only thing I don't like about his platform. I do want tax reform; I just don't like the national sales tax portion of that plan.

I still support Cain for president. I hope he wins. But, when it comes time to implement 9-9-9, I hope he fails.

Hide your kids, hide your husbands, Republicans be rapin' ev'rybody

Joe Biden wants to raise your taxes so you won't get raped.

[Direct link]
In 2008, when Flint had 265 sworn officers on their police force, there were 35 murders and 91 rapes in this city. In 2010, when Flint had only 144 police officers, the murder rate climbed to 65 and rapes--just to pick two categories--climbed to 229. In 2011, you now only have 125 shields. God only knows what the numbers will be this year for Flint if we don't rectify it. And God only knows what that number would have been had we not been able to get a little bit of help to you.
So, if you weren't raped or murdered this year, thank Joe Biden and Barack Obama.

If you were raped or murdered, blamed the Republicans. In fact, the Republicans are tired of rapists and murders getting all the credit. They have formed a task force to climb into your windows, snatch your people up, and rape them.

How do you defend against it? You need to hide your kids, hide your wife, and hide your husbands because the Republicans will be raping everybody.

And they're all racist. Especially that colored fellow. He's the most racist of them all.

Things you won't see in the next GOP debate

According to CBS News, Jon Huntsman said he won't light his hair on fire in tonight's debate.

I didn't realize that was even a possibility that he might do that. I mean, if he has to actually say he won't, then either it had been under discussion, or people think he's crazy enough to consider it. I'm leaning toward the latter; Huntsman was part of the Obama administration, after all, and if that doesn't say crazy, I dont' know what does ... other than supporting Ron Paul.

Anyway, we now know to not expect Jon Huntsman to light his hair on fire. And now I'm wondering what else we won't see.
  • Michele Bachmann won't swing from the ceiling like a monkey. (Ron Paul might, but Bachmann definitely won't.)
  • Newt Gingrich will not propose everyone get naked and cook hamburgers. (But Ron Paul might.)
  • Herman Cain won't sing "I'm a little teapot, short and stout." (Although Ron Paul won't rule it out.)
  • Mitt Romney won't show his underwear, although Ron Paul will show his.
  • Rick Perry won't pull a gun on the panel. A knife, maybe, but not a gun.
  • Rick Santorum won't answer every question with an 80s power ballad.
If you plan to watch tonight's debate, you now know what to not expect.

Columbus Day 2012

I think it was "in Nineteen-Hundred and Forty-Two, Columbus sailed the ocean blue..."

Maybe it was earlier, because if it was then, the Germans would have torpedoed him.

I'll go look it up. Be right back.

* * *

Okay, I'm back. And here's the deal. It was a Friday, October 12, 1492 (makes a difference). At least, on the Julian calendar it was a Friday. I can't tell you what day of the Gregorian Calendar, because Pope Gregory XIII wasn't born until 1502. But I think it would have been a Wednesday.

Anyway, Friday October 12, 1492 is when Columbus discovered America. Which was a shock to the people already living here.

So, it's a holiday. Columbus Day, that is. Only we don't celebrate it on the Friday. Or a Wednesday. No, the government has decided that it's on a Monday, and that makes it October 10th this year.

Banks are closed today, because of Columbus' influence on the banking industry. Or something.

Post Office is closed, too. Get used to that.

Schools are closed, too. At least, I didn't see any school buses stopped in the road loading or unloading kids while cars sped by at 55 in a 35.

So, I suppose we're supposed to be celebrating. I'm observing Columbus Day by working at my job in Columbus.

How are you celebrating Columbus Day?

When it's Media Whore vs Media Whore, who do you cheer for?

I haven't followed much of the whole Occupy Wall Street thing for a few reasons. First, unless it's well-financed by lots of money, it'll go away soon. Next, it's up in New York, and that kind of stuff won't happen around here.

Only, now, there's an Occupy Atlanta group. Which is a little closer to home.

Now, lots of people confuse Atlanta with Georgia. Atlanta is in Georgia, but Atlanta isn't Georgia. (Don't make me spend a bunch of time explaining the difference; it'll end up with you acknowledging I'm right and a lot of time wasted. Or, you could just accept what I say save yourself a lot of time and aggravation. Agreed? Good.)

The geography involved with protests being in Atlanta makes the whole protest thing suddenly relevant to people who live or work in Georgia.

Nobody really knows what they're protesting. Maybe the Braves' end-of-season collapse, I don't know. Best I can tell, they saw some protests on the television and said, "Hey, we can do that!" And so they are doing that.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution has decided that they're protesting "corporate greed and the war in Afghanistan," although it couldn't find anyone to actually say that. They did find a fellow from Copwatch, an anti-police group, who's not sure why they're there, either.

Just like a pile of manure attracts flies, the Occupy Atlanta protests have attracted flies like John Lewis.

The whole left likes to make out like he's some civil rights hero or something. He's not. He was a media whore then, and he's a media whore now. And, in case you forgot, he's the little liar who made false claims that TEA Party protesters hurled racial epithets at him. They didn't.

So there are the players: a protest group that doesn't know what they're protesting about and a long-time left-wing protester who got himself elected to Congress a while back.

Lewis showed up at the Occupy Atlanta the other day, wanting to show his supporte for their protests about ... whatever the hell it is they're protesting. And, he wanted to address the group. They told him "no."

Who do you root for in this one? John Lewis, who's way past his 15 minutes? Or Occupy Atlanta, which has camped out in Woodruff Park (where Atlanta's homeless-away-from-home reside).

I'm sort of amused by all this. Media Whore vs Media Whore. I just wish they were a little further way.

Who's gonna lose, week 6

My perfect record continues through this year's college football season. While on some weeks, a few of the teams don't do like they're supposed to -- that's on them, not me -- last week, most of the teams did like they were suposed to do.

Now, it's time for week six. And, unless you enjoy playing golf with Adolf Hitler, you're ready for this week's picks. We'll look at the battles between ranked teams, some other games of interest, plus the major schools from my state, as well as Frank J's and Harvey's states as well.

How the Stimulus saved us

In case you weren't aware, Barack Obama is teh awesomest person in the whole wide world. Just ask him. Or Nancy Pelosi.

The former Speaker of the House and current Minority Leader who represents Planet San Francisco, told The Weekly Standard that, without Obama's 2009 Stimulus, we'd be in worse shape than we are now:
"Without the Recovery Act and accompanying federal interventions, whether from the Fed, or Cash for Clunkers, or other initiatives, the unemployment rate last year at the time of the election would have been fourteen and a half percent, not nine and a half percent," said Minority Leader Pelosi.
You see? You see? The Stimulus was a good thing. Crazy Aunt Nancy said so.

I wonder why she stopped there, though. Because there must have been more that the Obama Stimulus did. Because Obama and the Democrats are so awesome you know.

We did some digging, and found out that, not only did the Obama Stimulus save 8.3 million imaginary jobs, it did a bunch of other things, too.
  • It helped Steve Jobs invent the iPad.
  • The stimulus kept the asteroid 99942 Apophis from striking the Earth.
  • It killed Osama bin Laden.
  • The stimulus won Super Bowl XLV.
  • It blew up the Death Star.
  • The stimulus is what gave the Old Spice Guy his job.
  • That thing you thought you lost? The stimulus actually found it and put it there on the table for you.
  • It kept the sun from burning out.
  • Remember when Global Warming was going to melt all the ice caps by 2011? The stimulus stopped it.
  • The stimulus saved Chuck Norris.
  • It kept Windows 7 from sucking as bad as Windows Vista.
  • The stimulus kept Pluto from leaving the solar system after scientists fired it.
There are so many wonderful things the stimulus has done, we need a new one every month.

ESPN and Hank Williams, Jr.

ESPN pulled the standard Hank Williams, Jr. opening from Monday Night Football after some comments the singer made on Fox and Friends:
In an interview Monday morning on Fox News' "Fox & Friends," Williams, unprompted, said of Obama's outing on the links with House Speaker John Boehner: "It'd be like Hitler playing golf with (Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin) Netanyahu."
I, for one, applaude the decision by ESPN.

Comparing the Speaker of the House, John Boehner, to Adolf Hitler was a horrible thing for Williams to do.

Then, comparing Obama to Benjamin Netanyahu? Our Israeli friend deserves better.

Who's gonna lose, week 5

After another perfect slate of predictions last week, I continue on a roll of getting all the picks correct. Some of the game outcomes were wrong, but the picks were dead on target.

And, unless you secretly want to work for the TSA or are a Troy Davis supporter, you're ready for another round of picking who's gonna lose this week in college football.
