Roundup

Comedian Jon Lovitz mugged by reality — twice! — First, he felt betrayed by Obama’s class warfare and lies.  Then he found out how “tolerant” his liberal fans were of opposing viewpoints.  Ouch.

Great video on why Christianity is true and Islam is not.

Obama’s creepy composite character, “Julia,” and her cradle-to-grave consumption of other people’s money should make even Liberals realize how ridiculous his government-will-solve-all-your-problems worldview is. But alas, discernment seems to be at an all-time low.

By her mid-twenties, Julia is a litigious member of the workforce suing for equal wages while hard working Americans subsidize her. She has her fatherless child and for twenty years drops off the map. That’s the most curious part — that and the fact that this paragon of Obama’s liberal America has no documented abortions and was not herself aborted.

James Taranto at the Wall Street Journal points out “[t]hat period includes the typical peak earning years–the time at which, assuming Julia is gainfully employed, she will be paying the biggest price for “Obama’s” generosity.” We know nothing of her time during those key years. Perhaps they were of little consequence because her whole adult working life was spent paying for the benefits of those who came after her.

That is the key. There is no mention of cost, no mention of debt, and no mention of tax burden for Julia. She receives everything and gives nothing. What is Julia’s fair share? In retirement, Barack Obama claims social security helps her live comfortably. Really? It boggles the mind.

This is Barack Obama’s vision of America — a welfare state from cradle to grave where parents and spouses are not needed because you have a federal government there for you the whole way from the delivery room to the death panel.

Here’s a good spoof (hat tip: Matthew from Facebook)

Plus this from Roxanne:

This blogger will note a few other telling problems with Julia’s life: no where does it mention where this money is coming from.  It assumes that social security will be available into the indefinite future, which is plainly erroneous. It also assumes that income-based repayment for college will exist throughout Julia’s life, which is also erroneous (explanation to follow shortly).  Julia has a sexy job as a web designer, but it never mentions that any old college major won’t qualify her for that job, nor does it say that she eschewed the liberal arts in favour of computer science.   Julia has a baby at age 31 but still needs more government help than my parents did when they were in their very early 20s. No where does Julia turn to charity, participate in charity or her community (except for a community garden, which is helpful only to those in her nice, middle-class area), go to church, or do many other things that normal Americans do.  It never said, “Julia’s Catholic Church shut itself down rather than pay for abortion drugs, so she was left to say her rosary at home.”  No mention is made of how Julia’s one child, and, by extension, everyone’s precious one baby, can pay for Social Security for their parents.

More reality from Roxanne as she nails the upside-down nature of Obamacare:

The only way that ObamaCare can control costs (and not reduce them, see above), is to ration care.  We’ll eventually all have “free” doctor’s visits but be denied life-saving treatment, which is the exact opposite result that you want for insurance, which is supposed to cover the really expensive things you can’t pay for yourself.  It would be like homeowner’s insurance that covers a leaky faucet for free but doesn’t give you a cent if your house burns down.

Some good pro-life news: Georgia becomes 6th state to protect pain-capable preborn children.  That’s progress, but even if someone doesn’t feel pain it is still immoral to kill her because she’s unwanted.  Pain-free killing is still killing.  If we really love our neighbors we’ll fight abortion.

The Left Got it Right: Let’s Drop the “I-Word”

So today, let’s acknowledge that words are indeed important. Let’s follow the lead of our friends on the progressive left. Let’s agree that “illegal alien” is inaccurate, insufficient, and possibly charged with interplanetary racism.

Today, let’s begin using the far more accurate and race-neutral term of criminal entrant.

Black Teen Run Off the Liberal Plantation – fascinating story about a teenager who dared to write about the similarities of slave-owner mentality and those who rule her schools.  Monopolists don’t like to give up their power!  Oddly, she hasn’t received a call from the President.

And see Rewriting History, where Stan exposes the many myths about which political party has really helped black people.

California apparently solved all their financial problems, so they are branching out.  Now the anti-choice zealots want to take away the rights of people who want to leave the LGBTQX lifestyles.  Stan has a good analysis.  Apparently all the stories of change from places like this must be lies, because the State of California said they couldn’t be true.

California bill targets consensual therapy for unwanted same-sex attraction – Just part of the activists’ ongoing SodoMonopoly plan, where religion, education, entertainment, government, media, medicine, counseling, foreign aid, etc. must be 100.0000% pro-LGBTQX or else .

General Electric: $14,000,000,000 in profits, 57,000 page tax return, zero taxes paid.

The sole purpose of corporate taxation is that it allows for Big Government “picking winners and losers,” as Paul Ryan puts it. Not even corporations that lack GE’s cozy relationship with the Obama Regime pay the taxes themselves; all costs are passed along to customers. In any case, the government’s main source of income is Ben Bernanke’s metaphorical printing press. The tax that actually produces the most revenue is inflation, a means of taxing every penny in your pocket.

The point of our tax code is to allow bureaucrats to “reward our friends and punish our enemies,” to use Obama’s phrase. Otherwise, corporations would devote their resources to hiring, cutting costs, and producing better products rather than to bribing the leeches in Washington.

“Attacked by tolerance.”  Not coming soon to the mainstream media near you.  These would be front-page “hate crimes” if done in the other direction.  I expect this hypocrisy from the pro-LGBTQX groups, but not from those claiming the name of Christ who aid, abet and encourage them.  I pray that they all repent and believe.

This is a great video by those upset that Obama is taking all the credit for killing Bin Laden.

  1. California? Oh, the anti gay/lesbian therapy thing is only the tip of the iceberg of lunacy out here these days. Look at what our wise and benevolent overlords in Sacramento are working on right now:

    http://www.nraila.org/legislation/state-legislation/2012/05/california-anti-gun-bills-need-your-help-to-be-stopped.aspx?s=&st=&ps=

    That’s right. They want to make it a felony to inadvertently drive onto school property with a toy gun in your car. And that’s on top of their efforts to eradicate open-carry of rifles, ban people from airports after making a mistake with the TSA, and crack down on arms trading among retired police officers…on top of their prior efforts to tell us where we can and cannot buy ammunition that is otherwise completely legal to purchase and possess.

    It’s not like we have massive problems with joblessness, deficits, immigration-related social and economic problems, issues over water rights, taxes, overregulation, social unrest or gay “marriage.” It’s not like other Western states are laughing at us as all our businesses and talented labor pull up stakes and relocate into one of their jurisdictions.

    No, we fixed all those problems permanently, decades ago. The Legislature now has plenty of time and other resources available, with which to continue writing and passing bills aimed at harassing and annoying law-abiding gun owners. We hunters, target-shooters, and defenders of our homes are SUCH a serious threat to “public safety”, you know.

  2. Thanks for the link to my “Non-Virgin Virgin.” It was a fun one to do!

    “Criminal entrant”- I LIKE IT!!!

    I think the most frustrating link here is to the girl who was “run off the plantation.” Where are the Al Sharptons and Jesse Jacksons, and even Obamas, for this one?

    As for California, I’ve been reading Stan’s blog, and nothing about California surprises me any more. That state is a regular Sodom and Gomorra.

    • The “Non-Virgin Virgin” piece was worth a link for the title alone!

      And yes, the absence of $harpton and Je$$e is just more proof of what they are really about. That is something worth protesting, not their other shakedowns.

So, what do you think?
