Lost Internet open thread

My Internet is dead this morning, so blogging will temporarily be limited to this iPhone generated open thread. Have at it! I’ll be back as soon as I can — probably in a couple of hours.

    Who’s the most popular visitor to the WH.

    Having ruined the pension funds of Americans nationally through corrupt and utterly unsustainable “projections” of future growth labor unions are now targeting your money to make up the difference:

    One of the nation’s largest labor unions, the Service Employees International Union (SEIU), is promoting a plan that will centralize all retirement plans for American workers, including private 401(k) plans, under one new “retirement system” for the United States.

    And so, it begins.
    First, they force the bill through using unscrupulous measures.
    Then, an enraged public is accused of  physical assault on the monsters who passed it, and a compliant lamestream media is more than willing to play into their hands. Eventually, one of those legislators is injured, or God forbid, killed.
    Next comes the ‘state of emergency’ — a lockdown of the internet and talk radio because of the “hate” they’re spreading. Then comes martial law, a door-to-door search to confiscate weapons of any registered Republican, Libertarian or Independents (or anyone who has posted to a conservative blog). Arrests, mock trials, firing squads.
    The Gulag has arrived.  Stalin used the phrase “peace, jobs and democracy” to describe his tyrannical Communist regime. Is the current regime any different?
    On another note, I’m now replacing the term ‘abortion’ with the word ‘stupak.’ Example: “Planned Parenthood is the largest provider of stupak or stupak referrals in the US.” or “She had a stupak rather than give the baby up for adoption.”

    It began – quote from Obama 2008

    “We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that we’ve set. We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded.”

    Time to pass the word around.
     
    Search “III” or “three percenters”.

    This one says Bad Stuff is about to happen.  At least it’ll either be right or wrong very soon…

    On this one, you don’t need to read the article – just take a look at the graph.  Container shipping is 25% of what it was just a couple of years ago.  So…if we don’t manufacture, and it isn’t being shipped…how can the economy improve?

    On the other side of the pond …
     
    The Labour MP Ann Cryer has called for British Pakistanis to stop marrying their first cousins after a study suggested that they were more likely to have children with recessive disorders than the general population.

    Fifty-five per cent of British Pakistanis are married to first cousins and in Bradford the figure is 75 per cent. British Pakistanis represent 3 per cent of all births in Britain but one third of children with recessive disorders….

    The rest here

    What Obama did to Israeli Prime Minister Bennjamin Netanyahu is beyond unconscionable for a Head Of State.  This M$#(@therf#$*%$er has me spinning with rage this time.  I am so sick of our enfant terrible President.   Please God, make this rancorous little monster Obama GO AWAY.  I can’t stand it anymore.
     
    The link, and the paragraphs that start this article about our horrid little child President.

    For a head of state to visit the White House and not pose for photographers is rare. For a key ally to be left to his own devices while the President withdraws to have dinner in private was, until this week, unheard of.

    Yet that is how Binyamin Netanyahu was treated by President Obama on Tuesday night, according to Israeli reports on a trip seen in Jerusalem tonight as a disastrous humiliation.
    After failing to extract a written promise of concessions on Jewish settlements, Mr Obama walked out of his meeting with Mr Netanyahu but invited him to stay at the White House, consult with advisors and “let me know if there is anything new”, a US congressman who spoke to the Prime Minister said today.
    “It was awful,” the congressman said. One Israeli newspaper called the meeting “a hazing in stages”, poisoned by such mistrust that the Israeli delegation eventually left rather than risk being eavesdropped on a White House phone line. Another said that the Prime Minister had received “the treatment reserved for the President of Equatorial Guinea”.
    Left to talk among themselves, Mr Netanyahu and his aides retreated to the Roosevelt Room.
    ————
     
    Let’s repeat a key phrase from the article above, where Mr. Netanyahu is *in* the White House, with advisors…
    An ally to be left to his own devices while the President withdraws to have dinner in private
     
    Unbelievable.  I can’t take it anymore.  A pox on our sickening, nausea-inducing President.  Go hug Hugo Chavez with that huge crap-eating grin of yours.  And go bow to another dictator. You fricking CREEP.  I am so angry.

    Mike Devx – you took most of the words out of my mouth.

    POTUS  plays  ‘pharoah’ before Passover.   Here on planet Earth, we all know how well that worked out the first time. I’d stay clear of D.C. for awhile, the locusts can be quite a nuisance in the Spring.
     
    Forget a pox on his house – there’s 10 plagues.

    If a picture is worth 1,000 words … How many do you need to express yourself after seeing this.
