Random Detritus Day.

I cannot begin to fathom why or how this guy came to be in a position of political power.  This is, however, fairly typical histrionic behavior on the part of the liberal mindset.  I’ve seen more emotional self-restraint on the part of pregnant women.

The health care crisis is a Holocaust???

That’s like calling a large electric bill a financial disaster.

Well, Jimmah Carter took the chickensh*t way out.

Carter said in an interview that he was only talking about a “fringe element” when he made the controversial remarks two weeks ago.

racist-toon091001

A good 'toon by Eric Allie... he captured the look of an idiot anchor quite nicely. I must go look up more of his stuff.

He’s not got a spine that allows him to stand behind his words.  Maybe some day they’ll have a spine transplant but for now, he’s doomed to be a jellyfish.  Watch him soft-pedal it…

“I said those that had a personal attack on President Obama as a person, that was tinged with racism,” Carter told CNN. “But I recognize that people that disagree with him on health care or the environment, that the vast majority of those are not tinged with racism.”

That is absolutely not what he said.   What he said weeks ago was:

“I think an overwhelming portion of the intensely demonstrated animosity toward President Barack Obama is based on the fact that he is a black man, that he is African-American,” Carter said at the time.

Michelle Obama: It’s a ‘sacrifice’ to travel to Europe to pitch for the Olympics. But I’m doing it for the kids.

A sacrifice?  What is a “Life-Changing Event”?  Having a slightly damp towel to dry off with after a shower?  A catastrophe must be running out Beluga caviar and settling for Sevruga.

Poor dear.  She has suffered so.

Anyway… Whose kids are you doing this for, Michelle?  Your own and the US’s children?  How is having the Olympics in Chicago better than in some other country for the benefit of their kids?

note:  Let’s not fool ourselves.  The Olympics may be about sports to the competitors, but to nations and political leaders it is about power and money.

Given the democratic/liberal mindset, those who are more successful should give more so that the less privileged may have more.  The US, having one of the best standards of living in the world, how can you argue to take the Olympics away from some less affluent nation?

Oh, we’re centered on our children?

Then by what logic can you possibly hold that taking from rich to give to the poor -AND- taking from the poor(er) are not mutually exlusive if not just hypocritical?

The whole idea of taxing one group to pay benefits to another has no moral or philosophical basis because free will has been removed.

Muslims need to develop a sense of humor and an appreciation of satire — and they need to understand that they are not “free of being mocked or being offended”Kurt Westergaard, the Danish caricaturist whose cartoon depicting the Prophet Muhammad incited rage throughout the Muslim world four years ago.

Mohammeds Secret

CAIR and muslims everywhere are bitching about it still.

“As an institution purportedly committed to making our campus an educational environment where all students feel equally comfortable, we feel that by hosting Kurt Westergaard Yale is undermining its commitment to creating a nurturing learning environment by failing to recognize the religious and racial sensitivity of the issue,” the group [Yale Muslim Students Association] said in a statement.

So… uh… hosting a fella is undermining a nurturing environment for some students.  Gee, that’s a shame.  Does the next paragraph help illustrate what real undermining is?

Several months after the cartoons were published, a Pakistani cleric reportedly offered 1.5 million rupee — roughly $16,700 — and a car to anyone who killed Westergaard. Mohammed Yousaf Qureshi, prayer leader at the Mohabat Khan mosque in the northwestern city of Peshawar, announced the bounty in February 2006 at the mosque and the Jamia Ashrafia religious school that he leads.

I’m sorry.  I’m just not supportive of any religion that in and of itself allows members to behave like thin-skinned overindulged children – to the point of riots, killings, looting, and burning.  And the overinflated sense of self that comes with hypersensitivity is repulsive, too.

But Ibrahim Hooper, communications director for the Washington-based Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), said the event was meant to rile Muslims.

“We’re strong believers in the First Amendment and he has the right to publish whatever he wants, however bigoted and offensive it is,” Hooper told FOXNews.com. “The people who brought him here are obviously intending to offend Muslims, but we’re not going to rise to the bait.”

“Their intent is to offend and get free publicity by getting Muslims to reply with a reaction,” Hooper said. “So, we will not.”

See?  Choose to be offended and then claim that everything that offends you was purposefully done just to rile you.  There’s an ego trip.

Kanye West seems to think that his inability to grieve over his mother’s death two years ago is a good pass to behave like an utter ass.
Kanye West may be able to take time off to think about his life after all now that his concert tour has been canceled.
<snip>
The reason for the cancellation was not revealed.
<snip>
West caused a ruckus at the MTV Awards last month when he put down his bottle of cognac, jumped on the MTV Music Video Awards stage and grabbed the microphone from singer Taylor Swift as she was giving an acceptance speech.
Don’t Miss
<snip>
West, who apologized the next day on “The Jay Leno Show,” seemed to blame his erratic behavior on the lack of time he had to grieve his mother’s death two years ago.
<snip>
“I deal with hurt and, you know, so many, you know, celebrities, they never take the time off, and I’ve never taken the time off to really, you know, I just, music after music and tour after tour on tour,” West told Leno.

Actually Kanye, I don’t, you know, know, you know?

Need any more reason to eliminate the practice of having Czars and have individuals vetted like anyone else would be?  Oh yeah, that advice to a boy to use a condom with an older man… good advice that.  If you have no moral compass and think relationships between kids and adults are ok, yeah sure.
