Speaking of rabbit holes and how deep they can go.  The Washington Examiner has a gold nugget…

“If there’s a blue pill and a red pill, and the blue pill is half the price of the red pill and works just as well, why not pay half price for the thing that’s going to make you well?” — President Obama

In last night’s press conference, President Obama seemed to be reliving that famous scene from The Matrix. The main character is offered a choice between a red pill that makes him see reality for what it is, and a blue pill that allows him to continue living in a pleasant world of illusions.  – David Fredosso, The Washington Examiner

Take the red pill, you moron.

An alert co-worker (Mews) sent me this link:

http://www.detnews.com/article/20090723/POLITICS02/907230392/State-Dems-propose-$10-minimum-wage

He had this to say:

I’m lost for words….  The first two paragraphs sum up the stupidity.

I’d point out this sentence in particular:
It’s pretty obvious from this whose side we’re on. We’re on the side of people who are suffering…  – Mark Brewer, the party chairman, during a news conference at Democratic headquarters in Lansing

Raise the minimum wage by 35% as mentioned in the news article and you’ll see all the small businesses that have to lay off more people to swell the ranks of the suffering.

It’s pretty obvious how self-serving that sentence is.  Whenever we decide to rob Peter to pay Paul, we can always count on the support of Paul.

He gets the “Silly Rabbit, Tricks are for Whores” award of the year.

According to the democrats this is thei raison d’être, whereas I see it as not the end but the means to gain power.  They are quite skilled at using people.  But when you basic assumption is that the little people need your help and cannot possibly help themselves in mind or deed it means that you must, for the higher good, manipulate them.  And help yourself to the cake as you go because, after all, you should get high compensation for high calling.

Obama had to weigh in and add fuel to the fire.  Never mind what the officer’s report shows, which is completely reasonable if you are a cop, given the sh*t you have to put up with (thank you, to all you policemen out there – my brother and nephew are cops).

WASHINGTON – President Barack Obama said Wednesday that police acted “stupidly” in the arrest of prominent black scholar Henry Louis Gates Jr. and that despite racial progress blacks and Hispanics are still singled out unfairly for arrest.  source here

Obama then says:

Obama called Gates a friend, and said he doesn’t know all the facts of the case. Nonetheless, Obama said, anyone would have been angry if treated the way Gates claims police in Cambridge, Mass., treated him.

Responding to the story – I don’t care if you have proof of being in your home or not.  If you have gotten to the point where you are yelling and screaming at the cop trying to do his job and refusing to listen – and – causing a disturbance… that’s called “being an asshole” and there are police who don’t take kindly to that kind of mistreatment.  Go figure.

But my take home lesson?  Obama doesn’t know all the facts of the case yet feels qualified to weigh in on the matter.  Why?  Because the man is “a friend” and black.
