Be your way is the new slogan for Burger King, and to go with it, the rainbow wrapped “Proud Whopper”. This special whopper will be sold at a single San Francisco store for a limited time. The wrapper features the classic gay pride rainbow along with the phrase “we are all the same inside” on the inside of the wrapper. It is interesting to me that a prominent burger chain would decide to chime in on this debate in such a public manner. But this move certainly answers some questions about previous ad campaigns.

“One of the things in sequester is we cut back in training and maintenance. That’s the way sequester was written, it’s just not appropriate, Mr. President, that our military can’t train and do the maintenance necessary. These men and women were Marines who were training there in Hawthorne, and with the sequester, it’s going to cut this stuff back.”
Well there you have it, the “King of the Demagogues” Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid tried his best to find a way to link the tragedy in Hawthorne with the budget cuts brought on by the sequester. The political opportunist Sen. Reid purposely politicized the tragedy, just another incident of “never let a good tragedy go to waste”. Rahm Emanuel would be proud!
Never mind the fact that Marine Corps officials stated that the exercise was planned well in advance, had nothing to do with the budget cuts and that there were no corners cut. They added “if they couldn’t afford to have all the safety precautions into place, they wouldn’t have done the exercise”. To insinuate that the Marines cut corners because of the sequester is irresponsible. Furthermore, Col. Chris Hughes, deputy director of U.S. Marine Corps Public Affairs, said in a statement:
“The comments are unsubstantiated and certainly do not reflect the Marine Corps’ position on this matter.”
Another Marine Corps official in reply to Reid’s comments stated that he considers this nothing but pure political posturing on the backs of these dead Marines.
Following the success of the “Twilight “ movies, the next hot genre of course would be Zombies. And indeed it’s true, “The Walking Dead “ is in it’s second season. And so too is the legacy media enthralled with the antics of the brain dead Occupy Wall Street zombies.
Today’s revelation “We going to burn New York City to the [expletive] ground on the 17th, ain’t no more talking, they got guns, we got bottles, they got bricks we got rocks, let’s see what they got. In a few days they’re going to see what a Molotov cocktail can do to Macy’s” prompted quick action by the New York Police Department and an arrest. The second arrest of protester Tinsley in a month. It seems he was arrested just weeks ago for assaulting a Police Officer.
Today’s ruckus stems from OWS’s eviction from Zuccotti Park. But they’ll be back tomorrow to “put an end to Wall Street’s reign of terror”. Bill Dobbs, one of the OWS organizers, told the New York media “Tomorrow is going to be a day of action around the city,” Dobbs said. “I’m looking forward to going after wall street and also galvanizing public support and awareness of what we’re about.” So, after two months, are they actually going to articulate something. I can’t wait… Let’s see, maybe they will ask for hemp filled hacky sacks. So when they are tired of playing with them, they can just smoke them.
But, I really find the phrase “put an end to Wall Street’s reign of terror” very humorous. When I think of “a reign of terror” a different picture comes to mind. I see mafia bosses, teamsters, and union thugs, not Bob Poindexter, the Wall Street corporate bean counter. Although, you could get a nasty stab wound from a sharpened pencil, or protractor. The real “reign of terror” is the constant assault on our personal liberties brought on by an ever increasing Federal Government. The “reign of terror” is the border violence that the current Administration turns a blind eye to. The “reign of terror” is the systematic attacks against Christians and Churches in the middle East in the wake of the Arab spring. The “reign of terror” is not your inability to scrape together the required funds to acquire the next iteration of “Gears of War” or “Modern Warfare”.
The most obvious question is, why are we having to watch this in the first place? Who cares about a rowdy ignorant unwashed collection of malcontents. Rapes have become so prevalent in the OWS camps, that one encampment actually created a tent just for women, to guard against rape. Add drugs, theft, sex (either in pairs, or just by yourself) and poor sanitation habits to the mix, and you have the makings of a serious public health issue. And I’m not just talking about things that can be cured by a silver bullet. For those of you from Lake Jackson, I’m not talking about a Coors Light, penicillin is often called a silver bullet. They claim that Wall Street has stolen their wealth and opportunities, meanwhile they steal from each other, rape each other, and assault each other. They have no regard for the rule of law, because they feel they are above it. The way the OWS protesters treat each other detracts from any message, if they had one, that they are trying to bring attention to.
And by the way, when I see a Che Guevara t-shirt, I’m already automatically tuned out, you’ve already lost me….
… so bring on the revolution, a conservative Republican revolution in 2012!
Over the last couple of weeks, we have seen the attacks against the Tea Party movement shift from allegations of racism,to extremism. I guess the whole unfounded racism front was not getting enough traction, so a change in tactics was in order. In typical Liberal fashion, when you can’t win on the basis of your argument, then fall back to your trump card, name calling. So what better word than extremism to associate the Tea Parties with hood wearing vigilante bigots, bomb throwers genocidal maniacs, and underwear bombers. Merriam-Webster defines the word as follows:
1: the quality or state of being extreme
2: advocacy of extreme measures or views : radicalism
— ex·trem·ist noun or adjective
If it is extreme to support the United States Constitution. and the Bill of Rights, then I am guilty of extremism. If it is extremist to defend my right to practice my religion in a matter of my own choosing, then guilty as charged. If it is extreme to support my right to free speech, or the right to assemble, I must then certainly be guilty of extremism. If I believe the 2nd amendment assures me of my right to bear arms, then I am surely a radical. If it is extreme to expect due process, protection from double jeopardy and self-incrimination and a trial by jury with a speedy public trial and the right to counsel without excessive bail and cruel and unusual punishment then an extremist I am. If I believe the the Representatives that I vote for and send to Washington should represent me and the best interest of my district or municipality and to the will of the people, then I am an extremist. If I am committed to do my dead level best to fight against the tyranny of socialist tyrants in order to secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, then color me extremist.
