PRYING Eyes Are Watching YOU!

Kathryn Watson of Watchdog.org writes from Alexandria, Virginia:

The police know exactly where my car has been — and when — during the past few months.

They could have the same information — or more — about you.

You Work for the USA, Claire!

Now I’ve heard everything. As if a U.S. Senator doesn’t have anything better to do, Claire McCaskill is going to “press” the country of Ireland to make public their private adoption records, something which isn’t even the law in this country.

Paean to Income Inequality?

This song, The Trees, by 1970s-era progressive rock band Rush describes a dispute between maples and oaks in an imaginary forest.  The maples resent the oaks for being taller, because, in the maples’ opinion, the oaks are hogging all the light.  The oaks don’t understand that point of view, because they’re only doing what comes naturally. The song ends thusly:

… So the maples formed a union
And demanded equal rights
‘The oaks are just too greedy
We will make them give us light’
Now there’s no more oak oppression
For they passed a noble law
And the trees are all kept equal
By hatchet, axe and saw.

Infernal Irony

That is what I mean by the infernal irony; by the joke shared with the Devil. Shall I tell you something that sounds like what they call a paradox?

Sometimes it is a joy in the very heart of hell to tell the truth. And above all, to tell it so that everybody misunderstands it.

Who Wants Income Equality? Do You?

minuteman - Copy

While arguing for a large increase in the minimum wage, Barack Obama recently said:

Across the developed world, inequality has increased. … But this increasing inequality is most pronounced in our country, and it challenges the very essence of who we are as a people.

Obama called this perceived need to address the allegedly growing income inequality as the

defining challenge of our time.

We know Obama only too well, and so we also know that the challenge, in Obama’s reasoning, is how to impose communism, redistribution, and income equality on nearly everyone in the USA (with the elite like himself excepted).

What Did the Pope Not Say?

A Jesuit-trained blogger, fluent in both “native” English and Spanish, translated anew Pope Francis’s recent publication Evangelii Gaudium. It’s not surprising that many have concluded that the “official” translation distorted the Pope’s meaning, especially with regard to “trickle down economics.”  JMG wrote:

The Pope’s message has been very significantly altered by a calamitous English (and ONLY the English) translation.

MAD Libs vs. Vulture Conservatives

According to Scott Whitlock of NewsBusters, [emphasis added to quotes]

Chris Matthews appears to have a Mad Libs-style list of the worst insults he hurls at conservative. On Wednesday, he chose “verbal terror” to smear everyone on the right who disagrees with all of the “great things” Barack Obama wants to do. The Hardball anchor opened his show by hyperbolically warning, “Political armageddon!” According to Matthews, the fight between the President and conservatives is not a conflict of ideas.  h/t Gordo

No, it’s much more than a conflict of ideas, alleges Matthews.  Watch the video of him, salivating like a mad dog, at NewsBusters. Continue reading

Round Up Illegal Aliens and Deport Them (So Says Saudi Arabia)

Now we hear that Obama is “pivoting” away from the debacle that is Obamacare as well as the many scandals in his administration.  One issue to which he plans to pivot is “immigration reform”.  In other words, amnesty–preferably for all “undocumented immigrants”, preferably with citizenship included so that all former illegal aliens can vote, preferably without having to secure the border, so that more and more potential voters can invade our country and turn the whole place “blue”.  You might wonder what that photo up there has to do with “immigration reform”.  Well, I’ll tell you:
