The Broken Reset Button

Wednesday, November 23rd, 2011

Do you remember a few years back when Hillary Clinton met with Russia’s Foreign Minister, Sergei Lavrov, and gave him that ridiculous “reset button” which represented the new administration’s desire for better relations with Russia? (funnily enough, the word “reset” was mistranslated as “overcharge”) If you’re wondering if the reset button worked, the answer is a resounding nooooooo, fool:

The United States said Tuesday it would no longer provide data to Russia on conventional weapons and troops in Europe, citing non-compliance by Moscow with a two-decade old treaty that governed the information exchange.

State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland told reporters the United States will cease to observe the provisions of the Treaty on Conventional Armed Forces in Europe (CFE).

Adopted in November 1990, it was seen as a groundbreaking accord credited with greatly advancing global security. But Russia suspended its observance of the treaty in 2007.

“This is an issue that we’ve been working on ever since the Russians withdrew,” Nuland told reporters.

“After four years of Russian non-implementation and after repeated efforts… to save the treaty, we think it’s important to take some counter-measures vis-a-vis Russia,” she said.

The current administration in Washington has an absolutely bass ackwards foreign policy. The great minds of the Obama administration thought (and still think) they can work with Russia on their countries mutual interests. However, the problem is that the commies don’t have any mutual interests with the American’s. The Russian’s are helping to develop the Iranian nuclear program, they support Hugo Chavez, hell, they even support Assad, and even sent muscle (warships) to the area to keep an eye on any NATO buildup.

The commies don’t want to make nice. They aren’t our friends and simply don’t share our mutual interests. No matter how many stupid gimmicks the Obama adminstration might come up with (“reset buttons”, “peace horns”, “do-over bells” etc), the fact remains that the commie adminstration in Russia hates America and want to see it destroyed. And all the unicorns, pixie dust, and hopey-changey nonsense in the world aint gonna change that fact.

**Is it possible for Lavrov and Clinton to come up with creepier smiles? The answer is no. No it isn’t.

Denouncing Capitalism

Sunday, May 15th, 2011

Denouncing capitalism is just one of those things you have to do to get and keep your job and lifestyle of tax payer subsidized privilege. An acquaintance of mine went into a rant about the evils of capitalism; which narrowed down to the evils of corporations. Corporations. Corporations are evil. Which leads to the question: what do you mean by Corporations. As in, how do you define Corporations. Being so hork spit in the granola evil, they must be identifiable, eh what?

The Recession Is Over — Although 35 Million Americans Might Not Agree

Monday, September 21st, 2009

food_stamps

As Bernanke and Co.™  have been telling the world lately, good times are here again. Ya. Except if you’re part of the 12% of Americans on food stamps:

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – More than 35 million Americans received food stamps in June, up 22 percent from June 2008 and a new record as the country continued to grapple with the worst recession since the Great Depression of the 1930s.

The food stamp program, which helps cover the cost of groceries for one in nine Americans, has grown in step with the U.S. unemployment rate which stood at 9.4 percent in July.

The Labor Department will release August employment figures on Friday.

June was the seventh straight month in which food stamp rolls set a record. The average benefit in June was $133.12 per person.

Now that unemployment in the States has risen to 9.7% (we all know it’s far higher than that even), expect the 35 million to swell once again.

A 22% monthly rise seems awfully high, doesn’t it? That’s what, 6-7 million extra people on food stamps in one month? I’m not sure what to attribute that to, maybe the good readership can tell The Mayor where these extra 6-7 million people came from all of a sudden. Is ACORN performing door to door services now?

The Mayor isn’t a mathematician, (although I once killed a budgie by hitting it with an abacus), but 35 million Americans getting $133 bucks a months works out to somewhere in the neighbourhood of 4.6 billion a month. That’s a sweet 50 billion a year. And that’s ALOT of stamps.

Not to worry though, as long as 52% of Americans still believe in the Hope & Change© Express, I’m sure everything will be just fine. Now go to bed, tuck yourself in, and have a lovely sleep.

Health reform? Bite me!

Thursday, September 3rd, 2009

relax_its_fake

You have to wait until the fourth paragraph, but you eventually find out what the pro-reform side has resorted to–biting off fingers:

A witness from the scene says a man was walking through the anti-reform group to get to the pro-reform side when he got into an altercation with the 65-year-old, who opposes health care reform.

The assailant chomper might have inadvertently illustrated what was wrong with the health system:

The man took his finger and walked to Los Robles hospital for treatment. Doctors reattached the finger, which was said to have been severed in half. He has since been released, according to a hospital spokesperson.

Wait, what? He got timely treatment, a finger re-attached, and was released within 24 hours? How was this possible without serious health insurance reform? Meanwhile, I stumbled along a story from Britain where overnight care involves the icebox:

Ms Sykes, who is now considering legal action, told the BBC: “I saw a nurse taking his finger, which was on a tray, in a plastic bag out of the bin and wiping it off.

“I feel so confused and angry. I believe that it hasn’t taken because of our treatment, because of it being thrown in the bin.

“It was in a plastic bag for a couple of hours and it’s not going to take after that much treatment.”

The family were then told to take the finger home, pack it in ice and put it in the fridge before taking it with them to Booth Hall hospital for the operation next morning.

Yes, the public “option” is clearly the way to go. If you don’t accept it, we’ll threaten your health.

Deadbeats To Get More Bailouts

Wednesday, July 15th, 2009

While most Americans now believe Obama’s stimulus plan has been a disaster, there are still many Americans that believe it has been a gift from God himself…or is that redundant?

NEW YORK, July 14 (Reuters) – U.S. government officials are weighing a plan that would let borrowers who have fallen behind on their mortgage payments avoid eviction by renting their homes instead, sources familiar with the administration’s thinking said on Tuesday.

Under one idea being discussed, delinquent homeowners would surrender ownership of their homes but would continue to live in the property for several years, the sources told Reuters.

Officials are also considering whether the government should make mortgage payments on behalf of borrowers who cannot keep up with their home loans, tapping an unused portion of a $50 billion housing aid kitty.

As part of this plan, jobless borrowers might receive a housing stipend along with regular unemployment benefits, the sources said.

In other words, if you have paid your mortgage religiously from the start, you are an absolute idiot.

Rewarding failure is the new pink. Taking gobs of money from the responsible and handing it to the slugs and deadbeats that can’t manage their own affairs is in vogue. If I was the sceptical type, I would think that these slugs and deadbeats are the same peoples that delivered their votes to The Messiah in the last election, and will deliver their votes to The Messiah in the next one, too.

Pay their mortgages, pay their healthcare, bail them the hell out. All this *free* stuff sure is costing you a lot, isn’t it?

Hopey Changey Week–Wednesday Edition

Wednesday, January 21st, 2009

To be honest, I didn’t really have it in me tonight to continue on with the whole hopey/changey thing. To be frank, I’m pretty much fed up with American politics right now. The whole jizzfest over Obama has sickened me and I need to step back and reload regroup.  

Instead, I bring you three hot babes.

I don’t like the look of the one you’re getting.

Hopey Changey Week–Tuesday Edition

Tuesday, January 20th, 2009

What a strange day. Obama (pbuh) gets inaugurated and Ted Kennedy and Robert Byrd nearly bite the dust. I’m starting to believe in this whole hope and change thing. I can see Kennedy taking a dirt nap at any time, after all, the guy’s a real pig. I’m sure he had his seizure right after eating a Baconator and right before eating some chocolate cheesecake. But Byrd? I have a feeling the Grand Wizard will live to 150. I actually think he’s dead and is being operated like a Muppet, but as long as there’s movement in dem dar eyes, I suppose we legally can’t write him off. Yet.

Anyway, Obama is the first Halfrican American President, and the world is a better place. The Moslems and Jews are now friends, Iran is no longer supporting terrorism, the stock market is back over 10,000, and the financial crisis has ended. And the birds are singing from the trees. Hopey changey, my friends, hopey changey.

DC Will Be A *Prostitution Free Zone* For The Inaugural

Saturday, January 17th, 2009

 

And when I say *prostitution free*, I don’t mean that the hookers aren’t charging, I mean that they are to be removed–temporarily.

Here what the good folks at Sweetness & Light (where I took this post from) had to say:

Reader Jason Cragg sent over this capture of a sign placed at 5th and Eye Streets NW, right in the middle of Inauguration Island. You’re reading it right: portions of downtown have been declared a “Prostitution Free Zone” for the Inaugural celebration period. The best part? It has an expiration date, as though at all other times, hookers have free reign over downtown Washington — hey, at least the MPD is honest.

Truth be told, this isn’t the first time the MPD has declared a PFZ. You can read about how the law works here, but the basic idea is that it allows police officers to issue fines of $300 to a group of two or more persons found congregating in a public space or property within the PFZ for the purpose of engaging in prostitution or prostitution-related offenses. Still, these signs are sure to look mighty funny to most people walking through the area on their way to the Inauguration on Tuesday.

I am also going to rely on the comments from the good readership at Sweetness & Lightto complete the rest of this post. Sit back and enjoy, there are some doozies in here:

“Has the area also been declared a crack cocaine-free zone?”

 

“Does this mean that no Democrats will be able to attend?

Next commenter–> No, it just means that there will be less attendance.

 

Media whores, easy Liberal girls, and people who have had 5+ abortions over the past year are still going to be there, rest assured. So at least their carnal desires can be sated.”

 

“Isn’t that Barney in the Limo with Barry?”

Next commenter–>It’s his corner now

 

Was this intended for politicians or hookers? At least one group makes its’ living honestly…

As is typical in a Democratic administration, the whores will be removed from the street and put directly into the White House.
