Supporting The Tyranny Of The Masses

2009 - California Supreme Court rules in favor of love segregation.
...
1852 - At the request of Gov. Brigham Young, the Territorial Legislature passes a bill legalizing slavery in Utah Territory, thereby establishing slavery outside of the South and foreshadowing future Mormon exercises in God-ordained persecution of minority populations.

[ cf Milestones in Majority Rule ]
Ah yes....

You just have to Respect Jesus' General.

was privatizing the intelligence community a Gooder idea?

Ah yes, not sure I want to know whom this Kerner is:
Critical Updates Below: Red State, American Thinker, Joey Smith and Reliapundit provide anecdotal and quantitative evidence that would appear to confirm a decided bias against dealers who donated to GOP causes or to anti-Obama Democrats.

Special note for moonbats: no one here is saying that the sole criterion for closing a dealership was partisanship. What we ask is: does it seem odd that the list of closed dealerships appears to have contributed a grand total of $200 to Barack Obama and millions to GOP candidates/causes?

[ cf Kerners Are Go!!! ]
Since I am not sure I want to get into that level of discourse about means and methods.

If there is anything that has opened up as an alternative reality, it is the unpleasantness that we may not need an intelligence community, if all that is required is Political Agenda, and talking points....

What would happen if we had to deal with the whole testable hypothesis idea....

Oh yes, more clear proof that nanciiPelosii must resign because obviously she was involved in supporting the torture of Auto Executives who did not support Obama....

Once Again Krugman Stabs Our Troops In The Back

Douglas Holtz-Eakin wants a conservative version of the Center for American Progress. But as Matt Yglesias points out, there are plenty of think tanks on the right, funded at levels beyond the left’s wildest dreams. If CAP is running rings around right-wing think tanks intellectually — which it is — it’s not due to a lack of institutions or funding.

So what’s the right’s problem? That’s easy: conservative think tanks are short of new ideas because new ideas were the last thing the billionaire funders of those institutions wanted. What they wanted, and still want, is validation of their prejudices; if someone at a right wing think tank forgets the nature of his job and actually, you know, does some independent thinking, he quickly gets fired.

A footnote: does anyone remember this?
In his latest column, the Washington Post’s David Broder extols the virtues of the Heritage Foundation and the Cato Institute, two of the nation’s most powerful and influential think tanks, on their 25th anniversaries. He writes that their “usefulness in Washington politics stems from their intellectual honesty and their willingness to question conventional wisdom, even when their friends are in power.”
[ cf Center for American Regress? ]
Well... Let us put our thinking cap on for just one minute here... Komrade Krugmann cites:
In the latest sign of the deepening split among conservatives over how far to go in challenging President Bush, Bruce Bartlett, a Republican commentator who has been increasingly critical of the White House, was dismissed on Monday as a senior fellow at the National Center for Policy Analysis, a conservative research group based in Dallas.

In a statement, the organization said the decision was made after Mr. Bartlett supplied its president, John C. Goodman, with the manuscript of his forthcoming book, "The Impostor: How George W. Bush Bankrupted America and Betrayed the Reagan Legacy."

[ cf In Sign of Conservative Split, a Commentator Is Dismissed ]
That was back in 2005, while our troops were ever more gloriously victoriously Mission Accomplishedly Winning In Vietnam than ever before.

Thus to oppose the Great Leadership of america's war president, and the think tanks that bring the thinking to tanks, is to Oppose Our Valiant Fighting Forces of The Republican Guard...

Which I think we can all agree is more proof why we must demand that nanciiPelosii Stand Down...

Oh hold it, this memo just in Bartlett was right, we have always opposed the Radical Leftist Doctrinaire Unamreicanism of Dubya!!!

Thank GOD we have RoboBushCheneyParis!!!
They Shiney!
and fashionably Fashionable!!!

They are the Thinking Tank....

Gays Stab Troops In The Back

A coalition of gay rights groups said Wednesday that a federal same-sex marriage lawsuit brought by two high-profile lawyers is premature and they'd rather work through state legislatures and voters to win wedding rights.

A day after the California Supreme Court upheld a voter-approved ban on gay marriage, the American Civil Liberties Union, Lambda Legal and other national organizations issued a statement saying they think the U.S. Supreme Court is not ready to rule in their favor on the issue.

"In our view, the best way to win marriage equality nationally is to continue working state by state, not to bring premature federal challenges that pose a very high risk of setting a negative U.S. Supreme Court precedent," said Shannon Minter, legal director of National Center for Lesbian Rights.

[ cf Gay groups call federal marriage suit premature ]
Well, let us deconstruct this Obvious Liberal Code Wording.

As we all know, the number of veterans is smaller than the number of voters, thus seeking to get a legislative agenda advanced by legislatures, rather than appealing to the Supreme's or the civilian president, mean that clearly gays are seeking a legislative agenda that will establish that laws are created in the legislature, and it would mean... OH MIEN GOTT IM HIMMEL - we would gain consensus that the consensus gained represented the overall majority.

But, But, BUT!!! What about the Cosmic Revelation of Truth??? What about the Special Powers of The War President????

Clearly by seeking to circumvent the Radical Judicial Activists Legislating from the Bench, and the Enhanced special powers of a war president.....

Thus we can only logically conclude that nanciiPelosii must resign because clearly this level of torturing reasoning means that she is more evil....

Or what if this could be one of those really happy moments in american history as we return to having a legislature legislating... Why, that way would maybe mean that the congress would need to be congressional!

Hetros' Stab Stuff In Back...

Ok, I confess, I did not know that there was a genre about men who fall onto planets of only women, and that the new bend on this is with a western theme wear version. No, those people are just, well, WRONG!!! Clearly another case of SciFiWesternNationalSocialistMarxinistIslamoCryptoZionism.

Where the choo-choo took the big trip around the bend was learning:
Publisher's Weekly has a great run-down of the rapidly growing genre of paranormal romance books,
...
paranormal romance is about the relationship, dark fantasy is usually about other stuff
...
Most of all, it's amazing to realize quite how successful the genre has become, growing at a massive rate even as the book industry as a whole suffers.

[ cf People Are Falling In Love With Paranormal Romance ]
Ok, this is where they should be rounded up as obvious Enemies of the state....

I thot that the whole point of getting the tax cuts for the war was to be providing us with gooder culture...

I mean, what is the point of
The Most Important Thing In A Time Of War!
Is Tax Cuts
-- Tom "Yes there is a KulturKampf Going On, with hats and fishnets, and permenate capital gaines tax cuts" DeLay
You know, to protect us from the Radical Hard Left who want legislatures to legislate, Governators To Governate, and Judges to provide some solid judgement....

{ SAFTEY WARNING - do not watch the vidoe ao i09, since the dialog May Be Terminal.... Oye... The Drek, The Drek!!! I mean who make that mark to fantasy island.... }

Should Obamanations Fund Psuedo Konspirakii?

Ok, so the news is starting to leak that the reason those four alleged terrorists were up to doing all of that bad, but without actually having any weapons, and were caught by the plant who was the federal funding informant, is.......

So would you take on a risky criminal enterprise, such as being the fall guy for Obamanation so that your brother could get the liver transplant???

And should the Obamanation be allowed to entrap folks into risky criminal enterprises so that the news splash will show that the paid informants can stage media spectacles???

I mean, this would work better with DearOldDick at the helm.... since we would also have the opportunity for a pay per view torture session for the select of the elect... the truly cool kids.

( digby's take: They're Coming To Get You )

Could this be a good time for the Obamanation to step up to the plate and resolve what the National Security Homeland Defense Health Care Programme should be - so that we do not face home grown terrorists trying to raise cash as Federal Special Operations Contractors, who happen to also be the fall Perkins....

Or were we just suppose to kvetch about the problems of outsourcing in the NationalLackOfIntelligenceCommunity?
