LIBERAL JACKASS QUOTE

President Barack Obama (Friend of the 1% - Bottom & Top)

"If Republicans win, we know who they'll be fighting for...Once again, the interests of billionaires will come before the needs of the middle class."

Obama is spewing out one of the longest held Liberal lies:  The Democrat Party is the party of the poor and middle class.

I agree, the Dems are the party of the poor - tossing out as much free stuff to them as possible...They are also the party of the super rich!

Democrats are hardly the party of the middle class...Unless you consider sticking it to the middle class in order to give free stuff to the poor as being the party of the middle class, that is.

Here's a beautiful piece of irony in Obama's quote above:  He said it at a fund raiser in a $26 million house...A $26 million house owned by a guy who has a $10 billion company.

And the best part of this is irony is the owner of this $26 million house, who owns a $10 billion company is named...Wait for it:  Rich Richman!

LOL!

"Obama criticized the GOP for being the party of billionaires - while he was speaking at a fund raiser at a billionaire's house!  I don't see how that story could get any worse.  But did you see the name of that billionaire?  He was Rich Richman.  Are you kidding me?  Rich Richman is the guy's name?  That sounds like a Batman villain.  Rich Richman?  Come on.  Obama would have stayed longer, but he was late for his lunch with Dollars McMoneybags." - Jimmy Fallon

LIBERAL JACKASS QUOTE

Councilman Charles Barron (New York City)

"I would love for him (Robert Mugabe) to come to Albany (N.Y. capital).  I would love for him to come anywhere in the United States, really...I think he's a shining example of an African leader on the African continent...I see him as a freedom fighter."

For those who don't know who Mugabe is, he's been Zimbabwe's dictator since 1983.  A real charm of a guy; who has starved and impoverished the majority of his country (the average Zimbabwean earns $900/year), while enriching himself (worth millions and possibly billions)...But he's a socialist who has stuck it Zimbabwe's whites since the Brits left - which I am certain is why Barron is so enamored with Mugabe.

Anyone care to guess which political party Barron belongs to?  Here's a hint:

"All my heroes were America's enemies." - Charles Barron

Ok, that was too much of a hint...Of course he's a Democrat.

What's really pathetic is Barron is a councilman in what is 'supposedly' one of the greatest cities in the world.  Even better he's soon to become a New York state assemblyman...He will be replacing his wife in the state assembly - and she'll be replacing him in the city council.

Greatest city in the world my ass!  If anything, this kind of political idiocy, by political idiots representing complete idiots, is proof that NYC is about as big a joke as the country Barron's hero rules.

LIBERAL JACKASS QUOTE

Lying Kentucky Liberals (A bunch of them)

I don't usually use videos for Liberal Jackass Quotes, but there are so may in this clip I couldn't resist.

Also, it should be noted this video proves two comment in POISON PERO's ELECTION GUIDE

"YOU ARE VOTING FOR A POLITICAL PARTY - NOT INDIVIDUALS!"

"It's unfortunate the very core of American politics (from ALL sides) is lying, but it is what it is.  And you shouldn't even bother paying attention to any of their lying campaign promises and smears."


Which is why, a vote for Alison Grimes - OR ANY OTHER DEMOCRAT ANYWHERE - truly is a vote for Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi & Harry Reid!

U.S. Navy's 239th Birthday


**THE U.S. NAVY IS THE GREATEST NAVAL FORCE IN HISTORY, GIVING AMERICA "GLOBAL REACH & GLOBAL POWER" AT A MOMENT'S NOTICE.**
-----------------------------------------

On Friday, October 13, 1775, meeting in Philadelphia, the Continental Congress voted to fit out two sailing vessels, armed with ten carriage guns, as well as swivel guns, and manned by crews of eighty, and to send them out on a cruise of three months to intercept transports carrying munitions and stores to the British army in America. This was the original legislation out of which the Continental Navy grew and as such constitutes the birth certificate of the navy.

To understand the momentous significance of the decision to send two armed vessels to sea under the authority of the Continental Congress, we need to review the strategic situation in which it was made and to consider the political struggle that lay behind it.

Americans first took up arms in the spring of 1775 not to sever their relationship with the king, but to defend their rights within the British Empire. By the autumn of 1775, the British North American colonies from Maine to Georgia were in open rebellion. Royal governments had been thrust out of many colonial capitals and revolutionary governments put in their places. The Continental Congress had assumed some of the responsibilities of a central government for the colonies, created a Continental Army, issued paper money for the support of the troops, and formed a committee to negotiate with foreign countries. Continental forces captured Fort Ticonderoga on Lake Champlain and launched an invasion of Canada.

In October 1775 the British held superiority at sea, from which they threatened to stop up the colonies' trade and to wreak destruction on seaside settlements. In response a few of the states had commissioned small fleets of their own for defense of local waters. Congress had not yet authorized privateering. Some in Congress worried about pushing the armed struggle too far, hoping that reconciliation with the mother country was still possible.

Yet, a small coterie of men in Congress had been advocating a Continental Navy from the outset of armed hostilities. Foremost among these men was John Adams, of Massachusetts. For months, he and a few others had been agitating in Congress for the establishment of an American fleet. They argued that a fleet would defend the seacoast towns, protect vital trade, retaliate against British raiders, and make it possible to seek out among neutral nations of the world the arms and stores that would make resistance possible.

Still, the establishment of a navy seemed too bold a move for some of the timid men in Congress. Some southerners agreed that a fleet would protect and secure the trade of New England but denied that it would that of the southern colonies. Most of the delegates did not consider the break with England as final and feared that a navy implied sovereignty and independence. Others thought a navy a hasty and foolish challenge to the mightiest fleet the world had seen. The most the pro-navy men could do was to get Congress to urge each colony to fit out armed vessels for the protection of their coasts and harbors.

Then, on 3 October, Rhode Island's delegates laid before Congress a bold resolution for the building and equipping of an American fleet, as soon as possible. When the motion came to the floor for debate, Samuel Chase, of Maryland, attacked it, saying it was "the maddest Idea in the World to think of building an American Fleet." Even pro-navy members found the proposal too vague. It lacked specifics and no one could tell how much it would cost.

If Congress was yet unwilling to embrace the idea of establishing a navy as a permanent measure, it could be tempted by short-term opportunities. Fortuitously, on 5 October, Congress received intelligence of two English brigs, unarmed and without convoy, laden with munitions, leaving England bound for Quebec. Congress immediately appointed a committee to consider how to take advantage of this opportunity. Its members were all New Englanders and all ardent supporters of a navy. They recommended first that the governments of Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and Connecticut be asked to dispatch armed vessels to lay in wait to intercept the munitions ships; next they outlined a plan for the equipping by Congress of two armed vessels to cruise to the eastward to intercept any ships bearing supplies to the British army. Congress let this plan lie on the table until 13 October, when another fortuitous event occurred in favor of the naval movement. A letter from General Washington was read in Congress in which he reported that he had taken under his command, at Continental expense, three schooners to cruise off Massachusetts to intercept enemy supply ships. The commander in chief had preempted members of Congress reluctant to take the first step of fitting out warships under Continental authority. Since they already had armed vessels cruising in their name, it was not such a big step to approve two more. The committee's proposal, now appearing eminently reasonable to the reluctant members, was adopted.

The Continental Navy grew into an important force. Within a few days, Congress established a Naval Committee charged with equipping a fleet. This committee directed the purchasing, outfitting, manning, and operations of the first ships of the new navy, drafted subsequent naval legislation, and prepared rules and regulations to govern the Continental Navy's conduct and internal administration.

Over the course of the War of Independence, the Continental Navy sent to sea more than fifty armed vessels of various types. The navy's squadrons and cruisers seized enemy supplies and carried correspondence and diplomats to Europe, returning with needed munitions. They took nearly 200 British vessels as prizes, some off the British Isles themselves, contributing to the demoralization of the enemy and forcing the British to divert warships to protect convoys and trade routes. In addition, the navy provoked diplomatic crises that helped bring France into the war against Great Britain. The Continental Navy began the proud tradition carried on today by our United States Navy, and whose birthday we celebrate each year in October.

Columbus Day = October 12!


Columbus Day is celebrated throughout the Western Hemisphere and to a lesser extent in Italy and Spain. It commemorates the arrival of Christopher Columbus in the New World in 1492. His arrival to the Americas marked a sustained and permanent link between the two continents.

In the U.S., the holiday is celebrated as a national holiday on the second Monday in October, because of our desire to have 3-day weekends at the expense of celebrating legitimate history...Just another case of our leaders being a bunch of fools with no sense of history - not that they don't know it, they just want to de-legitimize it.

Needless to say (or it should be), Columbus' discovery of the New World is one of the most important discoveries in the history of mankind.  One which truly changed the world.

After seeking support for his journey from the village of Genoa, Henry VII of England, and John II of Portugal, King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella finally agreed to underwrite is voyage in hopes of finding a western passage to India. Despite the many naysayers, most scholars readily accepted that the world was round. Columbus was well read in Plato, Aristotle, Marco Polo, Ptolemy, and others thus supporting his hypothesis of a western route to the east. What he did not know was the distance and the fact that a great land stood in his way.

On August 3, 1492, he set sail with three ships, the Santa Maria, the Pinta, and the Nina and a ninety person crew. Just as the crew was becoming mutinous, land was sighted. It was 10 PM on Friday, October 11, 1492. They sailed for a few more hours before lowering their sails and went ashore the next morning. The landing spot is believed to be Watling Island today. On shore, they encountered curious natives, many trees, fresh water, and much fruit.

Columbus left the New World on January 4, 1493 with 6 natives on board, but leaving behind 39 members of his crew. Upon his arrival to Europe, he was greeted with great fanfare. He quickly reassembled new support for a subsequent journey and left on September 25 of the same year. In all, he embarked on four journeys to the New Land.

Ironic as it seems, Columbus never fully understood the extent of his discovery. While he died in wealth and great acclaim, he believed he had discovered islands off the cost of India, not a New World. Furthermore, through an editorial error some years hence, Americus Vespucci, and Italian explorer, was acknowledged as the discoverer of the new land thus lending the land to be named of him.

The Tammany Society of New York City first celebrated Columbus' October 12 arrival to America in 1792. Subsequent celebrations were held throughout the years until Alvah Adams, the governor of Colorado formally requested his state to observe the holiday in 1905. Other cities and states followed Colorado's example until 1937 when President Franklin Delano Roosevelt proclaimed it a holiday.

POISON PERO's ELECTION GUIDE

The 2014 Mid-Term Elections are about a month away, so I hope this is helpful.

First, I want to go over a basic truth in American politics - one which is true for better or worse in every city, state and national election.

YOU ARE VOTING FOR A POLITICAL PARTY - NOT INDIVIDUALS!

Most Americans deny this reality, because they hate the thought of its simplicity, but it is true...Almost every Republican politician votes with the Republican Party 80-100% of the time.  Almost every Democrat votes with the Democrat Party 80-100% of the time.

If you can't accept this reality, you can't accept the American political system...Either way, it is true.

Also, none of us know the various candidates we are going to vote for.  And you surely can't be foolish enough to fall prey to the stupid commercials and advertising they throw at you...All of the candidates lie about their own successes, failures and plans, and they lie even more about their opponents.  It's unfortunate the very core of American politics (from ALL sides) is lying, but it is what it is.  And you shouldn't even bother paying attention to any of their lying campaign promises and smears.

So, voting for individuals in any of your respective elections (city council, state representatives, governors, federal congressmen and senators, etc.) should be a very simple task - you should be able to fill out your entire ballot by asking yourself one question:

DO YOU LIKE THE POLICIES OF BARACK OBAMA, NANCY PELOSI & HARRY REID?

If your answer to the above question is 'Yes, I do like the policies of Obama, Pelosi & Reid' then by all means you should VOTE FOR EVERY DEMOCRAT ON YOUR BALLOT.

Doing so will ensure you get MORE of their policies.

The key word in that question is POLICIES...Who cares if you think they are good people, talk well, look good on camera, etc.!  What matters is the policies they will create and enforce on the back of YOUR vote.

DO YOU LIKE THE POLICIES OF BARACK OBAMA, NANCY PELOSI & HARRY REID?

If your answer to the above question is 'No, I do not like the policies of Obama, Pelosi & Reid' then by all means you should VOTE FOR EVERY REPUBLICAN ON YOUR BALLOT.

Doing so will ensure you get LESS of the policies of Obama, Pelosi & Reid.

So, vote for whoever you will, but be honest enough with yourself to vote for reality:  If you like the policies of Obama, Pelosi & Reid, vote for every Democrat on your ballot...If you do not like the policies of the Obama, Pelosi & Reid, vote for every Republican on your ballot.

IF YOU DON'T LIKE EITHER PARTY - DO NOT VOTE FOR AN INDEPENDENT!

You may think this is a good idea, but the Independent most likely has no chance of actually winning, and your vote will only help the candidate their policies are most closely aligned with; Democrat or Republican - it's probably why they are there in the first place:  As a stalking-horse against one or the other major candidates...SO, YOU MAY AS WELL VOTE FOR THAT DEMOCRAT OR REPUBLICAN!

I am not advising you who to vote for...I am simply reminding you that you are not voting for the individuals on your ballot.  YOU ARE VOTING FOR THAT INDIVIDUAL'S PARTY.  You are voting to support or not support Obama, Pelosi & Reid.

-----------------

Arizona Ballot Propositions (I live in AZ, but this review is true for every state)

Ballot propositions are a disgrace, and are a means to two ends:
1.  They are used by the state and local legislatures to push their job off on the people...Most often when they don't have the guts to make a tough decision, and want to be able to blame the people when things go wrong.
2.  They are used by various activist groups to push their pet projects around the state and local legislatures to the people.

Even the ballot propositions I may like are wrong.

America is a representative democracy - not a direct democracy...We elect representatives to do a job, and we should not allow them to not do it.  We should also not allow activists to go around our elected representatives.

Also, almost every ballot proposition EVER has unknown poison pills...This is by design, because those who create these propositions are counting on the FACT that the people have no idea what is in them.  Instead they are banking on the people falling for political trickery - which unfortunately happens far to often.

VOTE NO ON EVERY BALLOT PROPOSITION!

-----------------

Arizona Judges

Voting on judges is insane, because we know even less about these individuals than we do about those running for political office - not that judges aren't political.

So, I rely on the 'Judicial Performance Reviews'...Almost all rate out just fine, but there are two who stand out as terrible (I have no idea why or what their politics are, but both received completely failing grades):

VOTE YES FOR EVERY JUDGE...EXCEPT:
- Pima County Superior Court Judge Catherine M. Woods and Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Benjamin R. Norris.

Both rated way under 30% - one was 0%...Throw these two losers out.

-----------------

Good luck, America...We're gonna need it.
