Pissed Off Liberals

Jersey Girl sent me this story.

ANTIOCH, Calif. (AP) - As more and more black renters began moving into this mostly white San Francisco Bay Area suburb a few years ago, neighbors started complaining about loud parties, mean pit bulls, blaring car radios, prostitution, drug dealing and muggings of schoolchildren.

It's a cultural thing.

In 2006, as the influx reached its peak, the police department formed a special crime-fighting unit to deal with the complaints, and authorities began cracking down on tenants in federally subsidized housing.

Huh? Isn't this some kind of racial profiling?

Now that police unit is the focus of lawsuits by black families who allege the city of 100,000 is orchestrating a campaign to drive them out.

White liberals wouldn't try to drive poor blacks out would they? Don't they love black people? They even helped elect one as

"A lot of people are moving out here looking for a better place to live," said Karen Coleman, a mother of three who came here five years ago from a blighted neighborhood in nearby Pittsburg. "We are trying to raise our kids like everyone else. But they don't want us here."

That's all they were looking for and they have become a victim of racial profiling. For shame!

Across the country, similar tensions have simmered when federally subsidized renters escaped run-down housing projects and violent neighborhoods by moving to nicer communities in suburban Washington, Chicago and Los Angeles.

Racial tensions? in 2008 America? How could that be? Call Reverend Jesse. Call Reverend Al.

But the friction in Antioch is "hotter than elsewhere," said U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development spokesman Larry Bush.

An increasing number of poor families receiving federal rental assistance have been moving here in recent years, partly because of the housing crisis.

Why's that?

A growing number of landlords were seeking a guaranteed source of revenue in a city hard-hit by foreclosures. They began offering their Antioch homes to low-income tenants in the HUD Section 8 housing program, which pays about two-thirds of every tenant's rent.

Ahh! Good old Section 8, one of the pillars of LBJ's Great Fucking Society.

Between 2000 and 2007, Antioch's black population nearly doubled from 8,824 to 16,316. And the number of Antioch renters receiving federal subsidies climbed almost 50 percent between 2003 and 2007 to 1,582, the majority of them black.

What's wrong with a little integration. Isn't that what the liberals want?

Longtime homeowners complained that the new arrivals brought crime and other troubles. In 2006, violent crime in Antioch shot up about 19 percent from the year before, while property crime went down slightly.

How dare they complain! Racist bastards!

So the Antioch police in mid-2006 created the Community Action Team, which focused on complaints of trouble at low-income renters' homes.

Police sent 315 complaints about subsidized tenants to the Contra Costa Housing Authority, which manages the federal program in the city, and urged the agency to evict many of them for lease violations such as drug use or gun possession. Lawyers for the tenants said 70 percent of the eviction recommendations were aimed at black renters. The housing authority turned down most of the requests.

70%! What did I tell you? Racial profiling.

Coleman said the police, after a complaint from a neighbor, showed up at her house one morning in 2007 to check on her husband, who was on parole for drunken driving. She said they searched the house and returned twice more that summer to try to find out whether the couple had violated any terms of their lease that could lead to eviction.

The Colemans were also slapped with a restraining order after a neighbor accused them of "continually harassing and threatening their family," according to court papers. The Colemans said a judge later rescinded the order.

Obviously the complaining family were a bunch of racists.

Joseph Villarreal, the housing authority chief, said the problems in Antioch mirror tensions seen nationally when poor renters move into neighborhoods they can afford only with government help.

On a serious note, we have people like these because of gummint policies which have created a dependent class, a class of people dependent upon the gummint.

"One of the goals of the programs is to de-concentrate poverty," Villarreal said. "There are just some people who don't want to spend public money that way."

I'm one of those people and I have been branded an elitist racist bastard.

Tensions like those afflicting Antioch have drawn scholars and law enforcement officials to debate whether crime follows subsidized renters out of the tenements to the suburbs.

Now that is sumpin' that is obvious to everyone but liberals.

I would really be interested in how the city of Antioch votes. I'll be willing to bet it votes overwhelmingly for Dimocrats. Let's do a little bit of investigation.

Lookee here. Turns out that Antioch is in the Tenth Congressional District and is represented by Ellen Tauscher (Rat Bastard Commie).

So why are you bonerheads pissed off? You voted for someone who us an avid supporter of the welfare state. These are the policies you voted for.

Cause meet Effect.

Name That Party In Puerto Rico

I realize I'm trampling on Fausta's turf here but I'm sure she'll excuse me. Dan sent me this link about Puerto Rico's soon to be ex-governor.

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico, Dec 29, 2008 (UPI via COMTEX) -- Puerto Rico's governor, indicted on corruption charges, posted a video on the popular social networking site Facebook admitting to making mistakes.

During the four-minute video, Gov. Anibal Acevedo Vila apologized to Puerto Ricans saying he "committed errors."

However, he did not address specific charges against him or admit to any criminal wrongdoing, according to the video posted Sunday.

A federal indictment handed down earlier this year accused the Puerto Rican governor of conspiracy to violate federal campaign laws and lying to the FBI, among other charges.

Acevedo, who was voted out of office last month, faces trial in February.

Hmmmm. There appears to be sumpin' missing from this story. What could it be? I'm drawing a blank here. Oh! I know! Is this dooshbag a Dimocrat or is he a Dimocrat?

Bon Voyage McCommie

Many readers sent me e-mails informing me of the latest doings of ny favorite little rat bastard commie, Cynthia McCommie. I read in this morning's Atlanta Urinal and Constipation that she was on a relief ship heading for Gaza. Turns out there's been an update on her voyage.

A boat carrying international activists, including former Georgia congresswoman Cynthia McKinney, and medical supplies to the embattled Gaza Strip sailed back into a Lebanese port on Tuesday after being turned back and damaged by the Israeli navy, organizers of the trip said.

Let's hear it for the Israeli Navy!

The crowds on the docks in the Lebanese port city of Tyre were jubilant and cheering as they welcomed the vessel.

They would cheer any opponent of Israel.

“Our boat was rammed three times, twice in the front and one on the side,” McKinney told CNN Tuesday morning. “Our mission was a peaceful mission. Our mission was thwarted by the aggressiveness of the Israeli military.”

Maybe they didn't recognize her. Don't know why not. She no longer sports the Buckwheat hairdo.

Yigal Palmor, a spokesman for Israel’s Foreign Ministry, denied there had been any shooting although the two ships had made “physical contact.”

I wonder if she threw a cellphone at them?

Palmor said there was no response to a radio warning to the Dignity, and the vessel then tried to out-maneuver the Israeli patrol boat, leading to the collision.

So solly Charlie. You moonbats were warned.

Cyprus state radio said the Cypriot government would seek explanations from Israel over the incident.

Here's the explanation: They tried to run a blockade. Israel stopped them.

McKinney called on President-elect Obama to address the Gaza crisis, saying the weapons being used by Israel were supplied by the United States.

Sorry Cindy. Jug Hussein Ears ain't president yet.

McKinney denied that the incident was an accident. “What the Israelis are saying is outright disinformation,” she said. “What happened to us last night was a direct threat to our mission, but not our cause.”

Like I'd believe anything McCommie said. She exhausted her credibility years ago.

Yannow, I was kinda hoping that McCommie would get past the blockade and would get stranded in Gaza. She would be among her own kind since she is a rabid anti-Semite. She got that from her Jew hating father, Billy McCommie.

I also don't give a rat's ass about the Palestinians. They have had many chances over the past twenty years to have their own state, but they would rather kill Jews. Golda Meir stated it best when she said, "There will not be peace until the Palestinians love their children more than they hate the Jews."

And of course we have Abba Eban who said, "The Palestinians have never missed an opportunity to miss an opportunity."

It's funny that there were no condemnations of Hamas firing rockets into Israel. Here's the big difference: The Palestinians try to kill civilians. The Israelis try not to kill civilians.

I have no sympathy for the Palestinians. Most of them are members of a 7th Century death cult. I'm fed up with them. I'm fed up with their terrorist ways. I'm fed up with their rampant hatred of Israel and the United States. I'm sorry to say that if they were wiped off the face of the earth, I would shed no tears.

It has come to that. How sad.

Saturday Night Feast

I was lucky enough to be invited to an Aubrey-Maturin feast that was put on by Elisson and Houston Steve. It was at Houston Steve's house and the entire feast was cooked by Houston Steve and Elisson which made the wives happy. Elisson cooked a goose. He also provided the horsey doovers. The full menu follows:


Image created by the very talented Elisson.

Attendees were Houston Steve and his lovely wife Debbie, Elisson and his lovely wife SWMBO, Barry (AKA Attila the Hun. I also found out that I'm referred to as Genghis Kahn) and his wife, and Stephan.

Was there wine? Of course there was. Houston Steve, Elisson, and Stephan are all fellow members of the Sommelier Guild of Atlanta. Since Houston Steve and Elisson supplied the food, Stephan and I supplied the wines.

Stephan brought a 1970 Cos d'Estournel Saint-Estephe, a 1978 Chateau Montrose Saint-Estephe, and a 1978 BV Beau Tour from Napa.

I brought a 2000 Rasteau (A delicious Rhone red. Alas! My last bottle) and a 2000 Chateau d'Angludet Margaux (I got five more bottles of it and it is ready to drink now!)

For those of you desiring to know who Aubrey and Maturin are, they are the heroes of the Master and Commander series. Houston Steve and Elisson were trying to create dishes that would be served in the captain's cabin (Minus the gravlox and blini.) aboard an English sailing ship in the late 18th and early 19th Century. I think we ate a little bit better Saturday night than they did aboard an English sailing vessel.

Elisson and Houston Steve outdid themselves Saturday night. What a feast! Thanks guys for an incredible evening.

Saturday Blonde Joke

From DBolsman.

I urgently needed a few days off work, but, I knew the Boss would not allow me to take leave.

I thought that maybe if I acted "Crazy" then he would tell me to take a few days off.
So, I hung upside-down on the ceiling and made funny noises.

My co-worker (who's blonde) asked me what I was doing.

I told her that I was pretending to be a light bulb, so that the Boss might think I was "Crazy" and give me a few days off.

A few minutes later the Boss came into the office and asked, "What in the name of good GOD are you doing?"

I told him I was a light bulb.

He said, "You are clearly stressed out." Go home and recuperate for a couple of days."

I jumped down and walked out of the office.

When my co-worker (the blonde) followed me, the Boss asked her, "...And where do you think you're going?!"

She said, "I'm going home too. I can't work in the dark.

Twelve Days Of Global Warming

From James.

Move Over Seattle

Since I'm feeling the Christmas spirit, I'm not gonna post an AOTW entry tonight. Instead, I'm gonna point out some massive moonbattery.

I was perusing the web yesterday and I came across this which has allowed San Francisco to rush past Seattle to reclaim the title of Moonbat Capital of the world.

Environmentally conscious travelers flying out of San Francisco International Airport will soon be able to assuage their guilt and minimize the impact of their air travel by buying certified carbon offsets at airport kiosks.

As P.T. Barnum once said, "There's a sucker born every minute."

The experimental program, scheduled to start this spring, would make SFO the first airport in the nation - possibly the world - to offer fliers the opportunity to purchase carbon offsets.

I'm sure that as soon as Seattle and Portland hear about this they'll follow suit.

"We'd like people to stop and consider the impacts of flying," said Steve McDougal, executive vice president for 3Degrees, a San Francisco firm that sells renewable-energy and carbon-reduction investments and is teaming up with the airport and the city on the project. "Obviously, people need to fly sometimes. No one expects them to stop, but they should consider taking steps to reduce their impacts."

I'm wondering if Steve was able to say that with a straight face? Even worse, I wonder if Steve believes his own bullshit.

San Francisco's Airport Commission has authorized the program, which will involve a $163,000 investment from SFO, but is still working out the details with 3Degrees. Because of that, McDougal said, he can't yet discuss specifics, such as the cost to purchase carbon offsets and what programs would benefit from travelers' purchases.

The scam has not been totally finalized yet. They stil haven't made up all the bullshit.

But the general idea, officials said, is that a traveler would approach a kiosk resembling the self-service check-in stations used by airlines, then punch in his or her destination. The computer would calculate the carbon footprint and the cost of an investment to offset the damage. The traveler could then swipe a credit card to help save the planet. Travelers would receive a printed receipt listing the projects benefiting from their environmental largesse.

Ain't that sweet? Stealing money from idiots. I thought they kicked out the religious dudes soliciting money at airports.

The carbon offsets are not tax deductible, said Krista Canellakis, a 3Degrees spokeswoman.

Why not? I thought the Dimocrats wanted to save the planet.

"While the carbon offsets purchased at kiosks can't be seen or touched, they are an actual product with a specific environmental claim whose ownership is transferred at the time of purchase," she said.

Psssst. Wanna buy some Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac stock?

But wait! There's more!

Nathan Ballard, a spokesman for Mayor Gavin Newsom, said a portion of each offset purchase would go to the San Francisco Carbon Fund, which supports local projects such as energy-efficiency programs and solar panel installations for low-income housing, as well as efforts to convert waste oils into biodiesel fuels.

Solar panels for low income housing. That makes about as much sense as giving mortgages to people who can't make house payments.

The cost of offsets for SFO travelers is still being negotiated, McDougal said,

We gotta figger out how much the suckers are willing to pay.

but figures on the company's Web-based "carbon calculator" suggest that a two-hour trip uses about 1,000 pounds of carbon dioxide per person, and the cost to offset that would be about $4. Offsetting a trip to Europe would cost $36.

A "carbon calculator". How scientific.

Under the agreement, the airport will provide the kiosks and 3Degrees will supply the software and the certified carbon offsets being sold and will operate the program. Kiosks will be placed throughout the airport, with locations at the customer service desk in Terminal 3 and two wings of the International Terminal. 3Degrees will get 30 percent of each purchase, with the rest going to carbon-reduction projects. The agreement calls for a one-year program, with a possible extension.

"The carbon kiosks will not only reduce global warming," Ballard said, "they will serve an educational function. It's something interesting to do while you're killing time at the airport."

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! AGW really is a religion and liberalism really is a mental disease.

A Pun For Christmas

From Richard.

As you know, it is important for Santa and his reindeer to be quiet when they deliver presents on Christmas Eve so no one will know they are there.

One Christmas Eve, Santa Claus landed on a rooftop and suddenly he heard a very loud, "Snort sniff honk honk snort!" coming from one of his reindeer. Since he was in the sleigh behind them, he didn't know which one it was. It happened again, only louder this time. "Snort sniff honk honk snort!" Dogs in the neighborhood began to bark.

"Shhh!" Santa hissed. "Please be quiet!" He went to work lifting the sack of toys out of the sleigh when he heard it again, only a lot louder this time. "SNORT SNIFF HONK HONK SNORT!"

Lights came on all over the neighborhood and some people even stuck their heads out of their windows. Santa was horrified. Jumping back into the sleigh, he drove quickly back to the North Pole. He lined up all the reindeer and announced, "We are not going to deliver another present until the reindeer who is making funny noises with his nose steps forward and apologizes!" None of the reindeer stepped forward.

Santa held up a piece of paper. "I know who it is and I have written your name on this paper. But I want to give you a chance to do the right thing on your own."

Still none of the reindeer came forward. So Santa did the only thing he could do.

He read off the rude-nosed reindeer...

Merry Christmas everyone!

An A-Salt On Reason

Those of you who know me know that I am seldom at a loss for words, but today I am totally flabbergasted. This isn't really true is it? Dear Criplet Paul this is a joke isn't it? Is this really an Onion site in disguise?

The icy streets are the result of Seattle's refusal to use salt, an effective ice-buster used by the state Department of Transportation and cities accustomed to dealing with heavy winter snows.

"If we were using salt, you'd see patches of bare road because salt is very effective," Wiggins said. "We decided not to utilize salt because it's not a healthy addition to Puget Sound."

WTF? Isn't Puget Sound made up of salt water???? How will adding salt hurt sumpin' that is already salty? Is there an optimum salt content for Puget Sound? Do they measure how much salt is there?

Holy crap! Liberalism is really a mental disease.

Monday Pun 12-22-2008

From Mike.

There were three medieval kingdoms on the shores of a lake. There was an island in the middle of the lake, over which the kingdoms had been fighting for years. Finally, the three kings decided that they would send their knights out to do battle, and the winner would take the island.

The night before the battle, the knights and their squires pitched camp and readied themselves for the fight. The first kingdom had 12 knights, and each knight had five squires, all of whom were busily polishing armor, brushing horses, and cooking food. The second kingdom had twenty knights, and each knight had 10 squires. Everyone at that camp was also busy preparing for battle. At the camp of the third kingdom, there was only one knight, with his squire. This squire took a large pot and hung it from a looped rope in a tall tree. He busied himself preparing the meal, while the knight polished his own armor.

When the hour of the battle came, the three kingdoms sent their squires out to fight (this was too trivial a matter for the knights to join in).

The battle raged, and when the dust had cleared, the only person left was the lone squire from the third kingdom, having defeated the squires from the other two kingdoms, thus proving ...

... that the squire of the high pot and noose is equal to the sum of the squires of the other two sides.

More Glow Bull Warming

So Pope Albert I of the Church of AGW said in Germany recently that in five years the north polar ice cap will be all gone. Funny, he sad that a year ago so won't it now be four years? Pope Albert loves to move the goal posts. About six years ago we had ten more years before we would be past the point of no return. So, it looks like the big year is gonna be 2012. Mark it on your calendars folks. In 2012 there will no longer be a polar ice cap at the North Pole and it will be too late to do anything about global warming. We're doomed!

But never fear. Jug Hussein Ears will fix everything. But he doesn't have much time according to the AP.

WASHINGTON (AP) - When Bill Clinton took office in 1993, global warming was a slow-moving environmental problem that was easy to ignore. Now it is a ticking time bomb that President-elect Barack Obama can't avoid.

But never fear. Remember that JHE said when he secured the nomination that we would look back and see that that was when the oceans quit rising and the planet began to heal.

Since Clinton's inauguration, summer Arctic sea ice has lost the equivalent of Alaska, California and Texas. The 10 hottest years on record have occurred since Clinton's second inauguration. Global warming is accelerating. Time is close to running out, and Obama knows it.

Actually of the ten hottest years of the 20th Century, five of them occurred before WWII, and 1934 was the hottest year on record, not 1998. Here we find a "journalist" blatantly lying about global warming.

The time for delay is over; the time for denial is over," he said on Tuesday after meeting with former Vice President Al Gore, who won a Nobel Peace Prize for his work on global warming. "We all believe what the scientists have been telling us for years now that this is a matter of urgency and national security and it has to be dealt with in a serious way."

Actually, more and more scientists are ceasing to believe in this global warming bullshit.

The rest of the article is more of the same, but I really got a kick out of the last two paragraphs.

Mother Nature, of course, is oblivious to the federal government's machinations. Ironically, 2008 is on pace to be a slightly cooler year in a steadily rising temperature trend line. Experts say it's thanks to a La Nina weather variation. While skeptics are already using it as evidence of some kind of cooling trend, it actually illustrates how fast the world is warming.

Huh?????? 2008 is gonna be cooler and that illustrates how fast the earth is warming. Dude! Can you get me some of that shit that you are smoking? Now he 'splains what he means.

The average global temperature in 2008 is likely to wind up slightly under 57.9 degrees Fahrenheit, about a tenth of a degree cooler than last year. When Clinton was inaugurated, 57.9 easily would have been the warmest year on record. Now, that temperature would qualify as the ninth warmest year.

Got that? Ya notice that he doesn't supply sources for his statements. In the spirit of today's "journalism" neither do I. Here's some fun. Google "warmest year on record" and see what you get.

Just remember, to a member of the Church of AGW, everything is evidence of global warming. Just like sub-freezing temperatures in Southern California.

Monday Pun 12-15-2008

Potato puns from Val.

Well, A Girl Potato and Boy Potato had eyes for each other,
and finally they got married, and had a little sweet potato, which they called 'Yam.'

Of course, they wanted the best for Yam.

When it was time, they told her about the facts of life.

They warned her about going out and
getting half-baked, so she wouldn't get accidentally
mashed, and get a bad name for herself like
'Hot Potato,' and end up with a bunch of Tater Tots

Yam said not to worry, no Spud would get her into
the sack and make a rotten potato out of her!

But on the other hand she wouldn't stay home and
become a Couch Potato either.

She would get Plenty of exercise so as not to be skinny like her Shoestring cousins.

When she went off to Europe, Mr. and Mrs. Potato told Yam to watch out for the hard-boiled guys from Ireland.

And the Greasy guys from France called the French Fries. And when she went out West, to watch out for the Indians so she wouldn't get scalloped.

Yam said she would stay on the straight and narrow And wouldn't associate with those high class Yukon Golds, or the ones from the other side of the tracks who advertise their trade on all the trucks that say, 'Frito Lay.'

Mr. And Mrs. Potato sent Yam to Idaho P.U. (that's Potato University) so that when she graduated she'd really be in the Chips.

But in spite of all they did for her, one day Yam came home and announced she was going to marry Tom Brokaw.

Tom Brokaw!

Mr. And Mrs. Potato were very upset.
They told Yam she couldn't possibly
Marry Tom Brokaw because he's just.......

a Common Tater.

Saturday Blonde Joke

From MoK.

A pretty blonde girl enters a sex shop to buy some sex toys.

She takes a long look at the wall in front of her and then tells the salesclerk:

“I’ll take the blue, the purple, and the red one.”

The salesclerk replies: “No problem with the blue and the purple one. But I’ll have to ask the boss about the fire extinguisher.”

AOTW 12-12-2008

This week I think I'll give the coveted award to Hot Rod Blowjobovich for trying to sell Jug Hussein Ears' Senate seat. What do you expect? He's an Illinois Dimocrat. He decided to rule Illinois from Chicago rather than Springfield so he could live close to the cesspool that is the Chicago political machine. Talk about a culture of corruption. Just remember, this is the sewer that JHE crawled out of. You do know that JHE won his seat in the state senate by having all of his opponents thrown off the ballot dontcha? What? The LSM never told you that? Also, when he ran for the Senate, somehow his opponent's private and sealed nasty divorce records somehow became public and unsealed. It's the Chicago way. Blowjobovich was just doing what comes naturally.

Unfortunately, none of this will rub off on the Obamessiah and even if it did, the LSM will cover for their hero. The only thing that would hurt JHE is if he were, in the words of Edwin Edwards, former governor of Louisiana, "caught in bed with a dead girl or a live boy".

I hope Blowjobovich sings like a canary to try and make a deal with the feds. I'd like to see some more Chicago pols arrested and led off in handcuffs. I notice Rahm Emanuel is ducking the press. Is JHE gonna throw him under the bus?

Yannow, I was expecting JHE to provide me with a lot of blogging fodder over the next four years, but I was not expecting a really good scandal even before he took office.

Blowjobovich committed the greatest sin in Chicago politics. He got caught. But he can console himself with this week's AOTW Award.

Pumpman used to call V-Man the best writer on the Web that no one reads. He is in rare form with this post.

V-Man is even funnier in person. His stories about his father, the Senator, always crack me up. He can also do a great Catfish impression having sumpin' to do with rolling eyes and a "pone star". Blown-Eyes know what I'm talking about.

Deadbeats = Deadbeats

We've been told that the reason we have all the defaults on these mortgages to poor people is because of predatory lenders who didn't explain to these bonerheads how their adjustable rate mortgages worked and that the interest rates would rise. So here's an easy fix. Let's just make the lenders lower the interest rates on these booger eatin' moh-rons and everything would be OK, right? They could keep their houses and they wouldn't be foreclosed on. Funny. It ain't working.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Recent data suggests that many borrowers who received help with mortgage modifications earlier this year tended to re-default on their payments, a top U.S. banking regulator said on Monday.

Deadbeats = Deadbeats.

"The results, I confess, were somewhat surprising, and not in a good way," said John Dugan, head of the U.S. Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, in prepared remarks for a U.S. housing forum.

How can that be? Barney Frank and Speaker Blinky told us that this would fix the problem and the poor could stay in their homes.

"Put simply, it shows that over half of mortgage modifications seemed not to be working after six months," he said.

I'm shocked! Who woulda thunk it?

Dugan said based on data collected from some of the biggest U.S. institutions, like Bank of America, Citibank and JPMorgan Chase, home foreclosure starts fell 2.6 percent in the three months ended in September.

However, data which is to be issued by the OCC and the Office of Thrift Supervision (OTS) next week could throw cold water on a push by some U.S. policymakers for loan modifications as the key remedy for the ailing U.S. financial and economic crisis.

Dugan said recent data showed that after three months, nearly 36 percent of borrowers who received restructured mortgages in the first quarter re-defaulted.

Deadbeats = Deadbeats.

The rate of re-default jumped to about 53 percent after six months and 58 percent after eight months, Dugan said, without providing an explanation for the trend.

At the risk of sounding like a broken record (Do you realize that in the age of CD's there are a lot of people who do not know what a broken record sounds like?): Deadbeats = Deadbeats. C'mon. It's like those consolidation loans that are supposed to eliminate credit card debt. Within a year, most of those buttheads have run up their credit card debt again.

Regulators speaking at an OTS-housing forum did not provide any explanations for the causes behind the data.

Dreabeats = Deadbeats. Howza 'bout that?

"We don't know the answers yet, but these are the types of questions that we have begun asking our servicers in detail," Dugan said.

Sheila Bair, chairman of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp, who has been pushing for fast and systematic loan modifications, said regulators need to examine re-default data more closely.

"I think it's very important to look at this data carefully and know what it says and what it doesn't say," Bair said.

What is says is that in spite of what the Carter and Clinton administrations did with the Community Redevelopment Act (and Jug Hussein Ears did as a community organizer) to force banks to loan money to poor people, many poor people should not own homes. They should rent.

In the majority of the cases poor people are poor for a reason. Go back and read my posts on poverty. They're easy to find. Just use the "Search this site" box on the left sidebar. To summarize, they made bad life choices. They dropped out of school. They never developed a work ethic. They had children they could not afford. Now anyone with the intelligence of a third grade pissant could tell you that these people were too fucking stupid to manage a mortgage. It should be obvious to the most casual observer, which of course puts it beyond the comprehension of bleeding heart liberals.

Chimpy McHalliburton Bushitler shares some blame here because of his "ownership society" plan, but he didn't browbeat banks to quit redlining neighborhoods and loan money to people who did not have the money skills to manage a mortgage. Banks redlined for a reason, as we are finding out now.

What I would like to see is Franklin Raines and Jamie Gorelick do the Ken Lay perp walk since they were up to their necks in the Fanny and Freddie collapse. They cooked the books and walked away with millions. Unfortunately, they'll be protected by the Dims in Congress and the JHE administration.

Raines is even a JHE advisor and Gorelick will prolly wind up back at the Justice Department where she can do more damage like what she did in the Clinton administration when she erected the wall between the FBI and the CIA to prevent them from sharing intelligence data.

Hey Planet Earth, aren't y'all glad that our gummint forced blanks to lend money to poor people. Wait until you see what the Obamessiah has in store. It's gonna get worse before it gets better.

Middle Name

Who knew? Jug Hussein Ears has a middle name? During the election his middle name was not to be mentioned. Now that he's been elected, I guess it's OK to use it. In fact, he's gonna use it when he's sworn in.

President-elect Barack Obama says he plans to use all three of his names when he takes the oath of office in January, giving voice to a name that was was rarely used during the campaign except by critics.

In his first post-election newspaper interview, with reporters from the Chicago Tribune and Los Angeles Times, Obama was asked: “Do you anticipate being sworn in as Barack Obama or Barack Hussein Obama?"

He replied: “I think the tradition is that they use all three names, and I will follow the tradition, not trying to make a statement one way or the other. I'll do what everybody else does.”

Wow! This reminds me of the election back in 1992 when Thunder Rodent Thighs quit using Rodham until after BJ was elected. Hmmm! I wonder why JHE is now gonna use Hussein? Could it be that he's now gonna suck up to the Moo-slimes? After all, he did say he wants to give a speech in a Moo-slime city. Yeah. That's gonna make the Islamic world love us. To them, the Obamessiah is an apostate. Since he had a Moo-slime father, he should be a Moo-slime not a Christian.

We're 21!

Saw a list of the most corrupt states at Politico. Got the link from my sister. Here are the top 35.

1. Louisiana(7.67)
2. Mississippi (6.66)
3. Kentucky (5.18)
4. Alabama (4.76)
5. Ohio(4.69)
6. Illinois (4.68)
7. Pennsylvania (4.55)
8. Florida (4.47)
9. New Jersey (4.32)
10. New York (3.95)
11. Tennessee (3.68)
12. Virginia (3.64)
13. Oklahoma (2.96)
14. Connecticut (2.80)
15. Missouri (2.79)
16. Arkansas (2.74)
17. Massachusetts (2.66)
18. Texas (2.44)
19. Maryland (2.31)
20. Michigan (2.14)
21. Georgia (2.13)
22. Wisconsin (2.09)
23. California (2.07)
24. North Carolina (1.96)
25. Arizona (1.88)
26. Indiana (1.85)
27. South Carolina (1.74)
28. Nevada (1.72)
29. Colorado (1.56)
30. Washington (1.52)
31. Utah (1.4117)
32. Kansas (1.4109)
33. Minnesota (1.24)
34. Iowa (0.91)
35. Oregon (0.68).

This is an eye opener. I would have guessed that the top three would have been Louisiana, New Jersey, and Illinois, but Illinois is number 6 and New Jersey is number 9. Holy crap! Are you crooks in Joisey and Illinois gonna let pissant states like Mississippi, Kentucky, and Alabama beat you out? WTF is wrong with you people? You have standards dontcha? It's nice to see Ohio is up there. The crooks there are doing their jobs, but they still got beat out by Alabama and Kentucky. You crooked pols just need to try harder.

Hopefully the Blowjobovich scandal will boost Illinois in the rankings. There's prolly more corruption in just Chicago than there is in many states.

Name That Party In Illinois

Looks like the governor of Illinois was busted for trying to sell Jug Hussein Ears senate seat. Corruption in Illinois politics? I'm shocked!

Let's see what the Chicago Tribune has to say.

Gov. Rod Blagojevich and his chief of staff, John Harris, were arrested by FBI agents on federal corruption charges Tuesday morning.

Blagojevich and Harris were arrested simultaneously at their homes at about 6:15 a.m., according to Frank Bochte of the FBI. Both were transported to FBI headquarters in Chicago.

In one charge related to the appointment of a senator to replace Barack Obama, prosecutors allege that Blagojevich sought appointment for himseld as Secretary of Health and Human Services in the new Obama administration, or a lucrative job with a union, in exchange for appointing a union-preferred candidate.

Another charge alleges Blagojevich and Harris conspired to demand the firing of Chicago Tribune editorial board members responsible for editorials critical of him in exchange for state help with the sale of Wrigley Field, the Chicago Cubs baseball stadium owned by Tribune Co.

The story goes on for 25 more paragraphs and never mentions what party Blagojevich is a member of. It does somehow work Nixon and Watergate into the story.

C'mon GOC, I can hear you say, the Chicago Tribune is an Illinois newspaper. Everyone in Chicago knows that Blagojevich is a Dimocrat.

On an amusing note, the owner of the Chicago Tribune and the LA Times just filed for bankruptcy. Maybe the people in LA and Chicago are tired of the blatant bias in reporting.

Let's see how the AP fares in this story. This appeared in the St. Louis Post Dispatch.

CHICAGO — Federal authorities arrested Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich Tuesday on charges that he brazenly conspired to sell or trade the U.S. Senate seat left vacant by President-elect Barack Obama to the highest bidder.

Blagojevich also was charged with illegally threatening to withhold state assistance to Tribune Co., the owner of the Chicago Tribune, in the sale of Wrigley Field, according to a federal criminal complaint. In return for state assistance, Blagojevich allegedly wanted members of the paper's editorial board who had been critical of him fired.

A 76-page FBI affidavit said the 51-year-old Democratic governor was intercepted on court-authorized wiretaps over the last month conspiring to sell or trade the vacant Senate seat for personal benefits for himself and his wife, Patti.

Holy crap! They actually named his party and they did it in the third pararaph! If he had been a Republican, it would have been in the first paragraph, but for the AP, even naming the party of A Dimocrat dooshbag is an improvement.

By the way for all of you folks who fell for JHE's Hope and Change bullshit, just remember that he comes from the same political machine that Blagojevich comes from.

Thanks to all who sent me links to this story.

The Deadwood Method

Doug Ross has a solution as to how we should honor the request of the 9/11 terrorists who now have confessed and want us to kill them, thus making them martyrs. Before throwing them in with the pigs, I think they should face a firing squad and make sure the bullets are dipped in pig fat.

The Roof Is Leaking

I'm sure y'all have heard the story about the hillbillies with the leaky roof. Earline tells Zeke to fix the roof because it is leaking. Zeke tells Earline he can't because it's raining. The next day when it's not raining Earline tells Zeke to fix the roof and he tells her he doesn't have to because it's not raining anymore.

That is a perfect analogy for what we'll be seeing the next few months and what we've seen over the last few months. Remember when gas was $4 a gallon (the roof was leaking), the Dims caved on offshore drilling (altho' ANWR is still off limits). They didn't cave on ANWR because even if we drilled there the oil wouldn't be available for the next ten years according to Chuck "the schmuck" Schumer. Now that the market place has determined (that old supply and demand thing) that gas should be $1.54 a gallon (that's what it costs here) watch for Jug Hussein Ears and the Dimocrats to reinstate the ban on offshore drilling again. After all, (the roof ain't leaking), we are back in the era of cheap oil again. People are even buying SUVs again. Oil is cheap. Let's party!

That's the upside of a world wide recession. The demand for oil went down, thus the price went down. Funny how that works.

There are people outside of the United States *cough* Prosper *cough* who are tickled to death to see the mighty United States go into a recession. What they don't realize is that when the US gets the sniffles, the rest of the world gets a cold. When the US gets a cold, the rest of the world gets the flu. When the US gets the flu, the rest of the world gets pneumonia. And when the US gets pneumonia, the rest of the world gets royally fucked.

We are still the engine that drives the world economy. Remember when we were gonna be supplanted by Japan back in the 80's? How did that work out? Now it's supposed to be China. They're even buying property in the US, just like the Japanese did in the 80's. They'll prolly get screwed just like the Japanese did back then as well.

Anyway, it ain't raining and now is the prime time to fix the roof before it starts raining again. We need to resume filling up the strategic oil reserve. We need to institute new drilling offshore and in ANWR so when we come out of the recession and demand goes back up, we will have additional supplies.

Of course we should start developing wind and solar, but we should also invest in clean coal and nuclear power. We should "drill, baby, drill!" so we'll be prepared for the next oil crunch.

Within two years it will start raining again. Now is the time to fix the roof. Too bad we won't.

Got it from Mark.

Just remember, this is the guy who helped put Mugabe in power in Zimbabwe. You know all about Zimbabwe, right? It used to be the bread basket of Africa, but thanks to the triumph of socialism, it is now the basket case of Africa. Ironic that the boob who helped put the thug Mugabe in power is now refused entrance to that country. Where's the gratitude?

Monday Pun 12-8-2008

This one is from Bill.

Not many people know it, but the Devil actually wears a wig. You'd never know if you weren't told - it's a perfect fit. Anyway, down in the world of fire and brimstone one guy did find out, and he decided to have a little practical joke. So one night, he sneaks past the guardian demons and manages to get all the way into Satan's bed chamber, whereupon he steals the hair-piece and makes good his escape.

Well, of course the Devil was most displeased by this, and he rounds up his demons, and demands to know which of them had been so lazy as to let someone sneak past them. Naturally, none of them owns up, which makes him even madder: So he calls a general meeting of everyone the underworld: everyone has to attend.

The meeting is held in a huge cavern, and it's absolutely packed (except for the odd gap in the crowd, where there's a lava-pit or bottomless fissure in the floor). As Satan steps up to speak, everyone sees that he's got no hair, and peals of laughter start echoing out around the hall.

The devil bellows at them to be quiet, and a deadly hush falls.

"Whoever stole it," he shouts, "had better return it immediately!" And here he paused for effect...

"Or else there'll be Hell Toupee!"

AOTW 12-5-2008

This week it's Harry "the war is lost" Reid for his bitching about smelly tourists.

The Capitol Visitors Center, which opened this morning, may have tripled its original budget and fallen years behind schedule, but Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid found a silver lining for members of Congress: tourists won't offend them with their B.O. anymore.

"My staff tells me not to say this, but I'm going to say it anyway," said Reid in his remarks. "In the summer because of the heat and high humidity, you could literally smell the tourists coming into the Capitol. It may be descriptive but it's true."

I'm surprised you could smell the tourists what with all the pork you dipshits have in all of your spending bills.

What is it with these politicians. I guess they do it because they know they can get away with it. Murtha calls his constituents hicks and rednecks and they prove him right by reelecting him. Now Reid calls American tourists, the people he supposedly "serves", a bunch of smelly people.

Here's your award asshole.

Civil War

I had a long talk with my nephew over Thanksgiving. He's currently stationed at Fort Gordon in Augusta and is going to school there. He changed over from Armor to Signals. In his first school, he finished third in his class, right behind two Navy guys. I did give him grief about finishing behind two squids. Anyway, he served two tours in Iraq and he was a little pissed off about the Iraqi Civil War.

Yannow about that right? The LSM has been saying that we are in the middle of a civil war in Iraq. TDHO was constantly harping about that in the comments. (Where has TDHO been lately? My guess is that she has had an Obamism of Chris Matthews like proportions and has been unable to function even at her level.)

My nephew was really surprised that when he got back from Iraq in the summer, that he had spent a year in the middle of a civil war. He was kinda wondering how being able to go around Baghdad unarmed was being "in the middle of a civil war". Compared to his previous tour, Baghdad was prolly safer than most large cities in the United States. His last few months there he was a liaison to an Iraqi Army unit. He said he was rather bored as there was no action.

He told me that the propagandists reporters who were writing about a "civil war" were holed up in hotels and never went out and actually saw what was going on. In other words, there was no Iraqi Civil War. It was made up. This came from someone who was actually over there.

I trust my nephew a hell of a lot more than I trust the propagandists reporters of the LSM.

More Liberal Idiocy

So one of the rat bastard commies at the Atlanta Urinal and Constipation wrote an op-ed on how we should fight terrorisim.

Every time terrorists strike, the civilized world vows not to let them win. Yet time after time, we give them exactly the victory they seek.

How so?

In the Middle East, Palestinian terrorists have attacked repeatedly in hopes of disrupting peace efforts; time after time, they’ve gotten their way.

What? More land? An independent Palestinian state? The destruction of Israel? I thought that was their goal. Doesn't sound to me like they're getting their way.

In the attacks on Sept. 11, Osama bin Laden made it clear that he was trying to provoke the United States into an overreaction; by invading Iraq, an oil-rich Islamic country that had nothing to do with 9/11, we gave him just what he wanted. Iraq became a great recruiting tool and rallying point for al-Qaida.

Actually he made it clear that he thought the United States was a paper tiger after we had left Somalia with our tail between our legs. Even he was surprised at our response. That's why he's been hiding in a cave ever since 9/11.

So it’s pretty simple: If you want to deny victory to terrorists, you figure out what they’re trying to get you to do. Then you don’t do it.

Let's see. They're trying to get us to die, so we won't do it. They're trying to get us to convert to Islam, so we won't do it. They're trying to get us to leave the Middle East, so we won't do it. Is that what you have in mind, Jay?

The goal of the terrorists who attacked Mumbai last week was not to kill hundreds of victims. “Victims are just the language of war,” as Khalid Sheikh Muhammad, the mastermind of Sept. 11, told his captors.

So what was their goal, Jay?

To the Mumbai terrorists, those many dead innocents were a means of achieving their goal, which was to undermine relations between Pakistan and India and provoke the two nuclear-armed nations to war. The world is now trying to ensure that rising anger in India —- anger that is natural and justified —- doesn’t give the murderers what they sought.

So they want India to wipe Pakistan off the map? Wow! That will reduce the number of Moo-slimes in the world. It will also reduce a base of operations for Islamic terrorists.

Now for the Kumbaya part of the column.

Ironically, one of the best lessons about how to respond to terror can be drawn from a seemingly unlikely source, the career of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Ah yes. Nonviolence. That's the way to deal with terrorism. Let's go demonstrate in front of mosques in Saudia Arabia, Iran, and other terrorist sponsoring nations. You lead the way Jay and let me know how that works out.

In his own, very different form of assymetric warfare, he too tried to provoke his more powerful opponents into an overreaction that would weaken them, with the very important moral difference that King chose to provoke through nonviolence. And as King discovered, some foes are too smart to play along.

Compare and contrast.

In 1962, King was drawn into the struggle to desegregate the town of Albany, Ga. He led protests and marches, trying to provoke local officials into an overreaction that would reverse the power dynamic. But the Albany sheriff, Laurie Pritchett, had studied King’s tactics and refused to give King what he sought. As Pritchett later explained, he met nonviolence with nonviolence.

King would organize mass demonstrations; Pritchett’s deputies would arrest the demonstrators, but they would do so calmly and professionally. King and his lieutenants would get themselves arrested, hoping to become high-profile martyrs; Pritchett would secretly arrange to let them go.

The good response. So I guess we should arrest terrorists and let them go? Is that what you are saying, Jay? You cannot provoke me Mr. Terrorist. I'm letting you go.

But a year later in Birmingham, King met a more cooperative foe in Police Commissioner Bull Connor. When demonstrators marched, Connor responded just as King hoped, with firehoses and nightsticks and police dogs sicced upon children.

The images out of Birmingham of the strong attacking the weak horrified the nation and forced federal intervention. Within days, legal segregation in Birmingham was ended forever. The weak had beaten the strong.

“We were witnessing police violence and brutality Birmingham-style,” as John Lewis put it. “Unfortunately for Bull Connor, so was the rest of the world.”

The bad response. Unfortunately for Lewis he was hit too many times by a nightstick which has turned him into a blithering idiot who is still living in the 60's.

Military force is a legitimate and necessary tool to defend ourselves and loved ones. When we can find terrorists, we should kill them, and where possible we should deny them sanctuary.

Which is what we are doing and which Jay has been against since about six months after 9/11. Remember when the whole country was against terrorism until about six months after 9/11 when the rat bastard commie Dimocrats decided that Chimpy McHaliburton Bushitler was a bigger enemy than the Moo-slime terrorists?

But it is important to remember that the civilized world is far stronger than they are. Whatever power they have is power that we give them through the anger and fear we allow them to provoke.

So we should Kumbaya them cause killing them gives them so much power?

Jesus H. Christ! This is one of the dumbest columns Jay has ever written and that's saying a lot since he has written so many dumb ones. On one hand he says we should kill them and deny them sanctuary, which is what we are doing, and on the other hand he says we shouldn't respond to terrorist attacks and act like some dude who arrested MLK and then let him out of jail. WTF?

Remember, he gets paid to write bullshit like this.

Freaking amazing!

Didja ever notice that whenever there is a recount the Dimocrat candidate always miraculously finds more votes that were somehow missing? Remember the Washington gubernatorial election a few years back when every recount found more votes for the Dimocrat? And look! Here's a whole box of votes that didn't get counted. They were hiding in that room back there and we just found them.

Also, they recount the votes until the Dimocrat wins and then they quit counting.

Well, once again, this scenario is playing out in Minnesota. Al Franken is trying to take his comedy skills to the Senate. I can only hope he'll be a better comedian there than he has been for the last ten years.

Minnesota Democrat Al Franken’s lead attorney said Tuesday that his count shows the comedian trailing Sen. Norm Coleman by just 50 votes with more than 200,000 left to be counted.

Attorney Marc Elias held his press conference in Washington just hours after elections officials found nearly 200 ballots that had not been counted on election night.

Wow! 200 uncounted ballots! What are the chances of that happening? Where were they hiding out? Maybe they just miraculously appeared out of nowhere. Poof PFM!

So far, the Franken campaign claims to have picked up 165 votes in the hotly contested recount. That number, Elias said, includes all ballots challenged by both campaigns, assuming any calls made by neutral election judges on the scene are accurate.

Amazing! Every recount (remember Florida?) always finds more votes for the Dimocrat. How does that work?

Chambliss Wins

Saxby Chambliss won the runoff for his Senate seat here in Georgia. I guess it was too much work for the Dims to round up welfare leeches and homeless people again this close to the last election.

Name That Party In Birmingham

It's time once again to play Name That Party. This time it's in Birmingham.

Birmingham Mayor Larry Langford was arrested this morning on federal charges and is being held at the federal courthouse, the FBI and other federal officials confirm.

See documents and past stories from the investigation of Langford.

A special grand jury for several months has been investigating county bond deals and Langford's financial dealings. Langford was Jefferson County Commission president 2002-06.

Al LaPierre, a close friend of Langford's who also was part of the federal investigation, will be surrendering today, said his attorney, Tommy Spina.

David McKnight, Montgomery banker Bill Blount's attorney, said Blount is on his way to Birmingham from Montgomery to surrender.

The Langford, LaPierre and Blount indictments are under seal, so details of the charges are not available.

There's more.

Former Jefferson County Commissioner John Katopodis was indicted in October on fraud charges stemming from his involvement with Computer Help for Kids, a charity established by Langford when Langford was mayor of Fairfield. Katapodis was arraigned on those charges in mid-November.

Now the big Question is what party do John Katapodis and Larry Langford belong to? Are they Dimocrats or are they Dimocrats?

I know! I know! Today's Atlanta Urinal and Constipation had a story about it. Turns out they are Dimocrats although it took six paragraphs before they mentioned it.

Thanks to Allan for sending me the link to the first story.

Yet another from Richard.

A couple decided to go out to eat at a Chinese restaurant. After looking over the menu, they both decided to have Chicken Surprise, the chef's special. The waiter brought their meal in a lidded pot. As the wife reached for the lid, it rose a few inches. She could see two beady eyes looking out before the lid slammed down. Startled, she asked her husband if he had seen the eyes. Just then, the lid rose again, revealing the two eyes before slamming down again. Perturbed, the couple called over the waiter and explained the situation.

"I apologize," he said,

"I mistakenly brought you the Peeking Duck."
