Don’t Bacon Me Bro!

I’m not a big fan of religious intolerance.  As Christians, we are targeted on a daily basis by liberals labelling us as “hateful” and “bigoted” just because we disagree with their secular world views and oppose their goal of purging all religion from public sight.

So, it was with no small measure of guilt that I found myself laughing at a recent story in the New York press about a “hate crime” committed against local Muslims.

What was the crime..?

Someone attacked a group of (in this case) peaceful Muslims who were celebrating the end of Ramadan in a local park.

What was the weapon..?

BACON!

You just can’t make this stuff up!

Apparently some asshat thought it would be a great idea to spread raw bacon around on the field where the Muslims were planning to pray.  Now, I call the guy an asshat because he is an asshat, even if I’m an asshat too for laughing at what he did.  We all know the kind of guy I’m talking about; the one always pulling some sort of stunt that just isn’t right, even if we can’t help but laugh.

And antagonizing this particular group of Muslims just for kicks and giggles fits that bill…

But, of course, the NYPD is going to take this one step (or MANY steps) too far:

NYPD Commissioner Ray Kelly has decided that this is a matter for the “Hate Crimes Task Force”.

Really..?

I mean…  REALLY…?!?!

When my car was stolen a few years ago, the best I could get out of Indianapolis police was a collective yawn, and that’s grand theft auto!  The REAL kind; not the little guy who runs around inside of my XBOX and has an odd penchant for running down prostitutes in the middle of the sidewalk..!

I can only imagine how much less the police in a city like New York would have cared about my poor car.

But in a city where there are murders on a daily basis and hundreds of cases go unsolved, this is where they place their focus..?

On a random baconing…

Get out the dogs!  Let’s start the manhunt for this heinous criminal mastermind!

But hey, apparently we’ve been fighting this war in Afghanistan all wrong.  We don’t really need the Army, or the Navy Seals; we just need a few pig farmers and a slaughterhouse.

Seems like it would be an awfully big waste of bacon…

Shot Down In Flames!

Oh, my, my, my!

SPANKED!

What a wonderful and glorious political week we have had!

Barack Obama and David Axelrod have invented a brand new game called “Hidin’ Biden”.

You have to love it.  After a week full of miscues that would have thrown the Obama campaign off message–if they actually had a message–Vice President Joe Biden got sent home to Delaware to stew for a while.  That would be funny enough, except that the White House released the announcement and actually titled it “Daily Guidance for the Vice President”.

Whoops!  Sounds like poor old Uncle Joe got spanked!

You just can not make that stuff up, and the Democrats are like the gift that keeps on giving this week..!

And, as it turns out, my musings from yesterday were not quite on target…

I speculated that John McCain may have made toxic the notion of replacing Biden with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.  Certainly that is what the Obama campaign would like us all to believe.  It did make sense to me, because Obama can never admit to making a mistake, especially publicly, and liberals across the nation recoiled at the idea of “taking VP advice” from McCain.

But apparently Axelrod and company DID try to recruit Hillary to replace Biden, and she shot them down!

I guess that the thought of attaching her political fortunes to someone like Barack Obama didn’t give her the warm fuzzies.  I still think it would have been really bad for us if she had accepted Obama’s offer, and that it could have been her best chance at becoming president in 2016, but–assuming they won this year–who can blame her for balking at the prospect of having to run on Obama’s dismal record?

Two members of the Obama campaign shot down in flames!  Shall we go for three..?

The coup de gras for Obama’s political week came in the form of Jim Messina.  Obama’s campaign manager has made overtures to the Romney campaign that almost certainly resulted in explosive laughter throughout the Romney/Ryan campaign headquarters:

“Please Mr. Mitt, can’t we just have a few more of those tax returns to dig through?  We promise we won’t ever bug you again for more!  We’ll be nice!  We swear!”

THAT, my friends, is pretty pathetic!

They will do anything to keep from talking about the real issues in this election, and Romney’s selection of Paul Ryan as his Vice President has them freaking out and shedding hair (except for Axelrod; he already shed his).

If I were the one writing Romney’s press release to respond, it would look something like this:

“BWAAAAAAAAAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHahahahahahahahaha!!!”

The Democrats are damned dangerous to this country, and Obama has been a complete disaster…

But never let it be said that they don’t provide us with comic relief!

Obama Chokes on Chick-Fil-A

I absolutely love Chick-Fil-A.

My original affection for the fast food chain has little to do with the recent controversy centered around the topic of traditional marriage.  We don’t have many of them in my area, so it is a treat when I get to eat there.  The food is always great, and I’m a huge fan of waffle fries..!

Yes, I am a life-long fast food junkie, and since Chick-Fil-A is rarely available to me, it has always been elevated a little higher than the other chains I frequent.

This recent controversy just elevates them higher in my eyes.  They handled the entire situation wonderfully, with grace.  By all accounts (including my own) people who went to support them during the height of all of the drama had a very pleasant experience.  The planned boycott and protests against them fizzled.  Angry activists were greeted with the same warm kindness and service standards set for those who came in support.

Now, according to Scott Rasmussen, 61% of people hold a favorable opinion of Chick-Fil-A.

That’s bad for Barack Obama.

Obama’s former Chief of Staff and current Mayor of Chicago Rahm Emanuel was clearly on the wrong side of this debate when he sought to deny the right of Chick-Fil-A to operate in “his” city.  It’s no stretch at all to see that Obama and Emanuel have very similar ideologies, or to think that Obama would have held the same position in Emanuel’s place.

Now, I am not naive enough to think that all of those people who see Chick-Fil-A in a positive light are opposed to homosexual marriage, but it is likely that most of them are.  Given Obama’s recent flip-flop of his past flip-flop-flippity-flopping on the issue, this does not bode well for him.  Because Obama has changed his position so many times, he loses a good deal of credibility.  Moreover, his switch in position came at a time when the LGBT community was threatening to withhold campaign donations from him; a very crass and cynical political move.  Nevermind that Obama isn’t proposing any actual policy change, or the fact that he was only paying lip-service to the LGBT community.

The real problem for Obama is that same-sex marriage has lost every time the people are allowed to vote on the issue, despite polling that would have indicated otherwise.

The Obama campaign is reading its own polls, and they’re believing them.

If we were to take polling at face value, along with exit polling, we would have had Presidents Al Gore and John Kerry, and there would have been no overwhelming Republican sweep of congress in 2010.  Most pollsters today care less about accuracy and more about propaganda.  The polls are crafted as a means to sway opinion rather than to gauge it.  They stack the deck by over-sampling Democrats, and by polling all registered voters instead of restricting themselves to those who are likely to vote.  Sometimes they don’t even bother to try to keep things that accurate;  they poll anyone, registered to vote, or not.

The fact that Obama “came out” in support of same-sex marriage indicates two things;  he was desperate for campaign cash, and his handlers are buying into their own polling.  That’s dangerous ground upon which to tread.

That so many people approve of Chick-Fil-A in the wake of what the media so desperately hoped would be a giant scandal can only be a bad thing for Obama.

Reid Takes a Bullet Full of Crazy for Obama and DNC

It has been an interesting week in the world of Politics.

Again, I could do with seeing less of this guy.

“Dirty” Harry Reid, the Senate Leader from Nevada, has come out to accuse presidential contender Mitt Romney of failing to file tax returns for ten years.  Oh, the joy he brings to a political pundit and strategist like me!

Reid makes these accusations based upon an obviously solid “source”…  himself!

Nevermind that the IRS, currently under control of the Obama administration, has never found fault with Romney.  Nevermind that Romney has released more tax returns than Reid (who has released exactly zero).  I delight in the irony of such an accusation coming from someone who lives in the Ritz Carlton, has dubious connections to organized crime in Nevada, and got very rich shortly after becoming a Senator, even though a Senator’s salary really isn’t all that high.

Senate Leader Whackadoodle just keeps on giving.

But Harry Reid doesn’t care what anyone thinks about him.  Obviously, he couldn’t care less what conservatives think, but he doesn’t care what other liberals think, or what the media thinks, either…  at least not right now.

That is because Harry Reid got re-elected in 2010 and he has another four years before he has to care what anyone thinks of him.  By then, everyone is sure to have forgotten this.

But even Reid himself is highly unlikely to believe his own story.  So, why make it all up?

As I pointed out in my article yesterday, the Obama campaign is desperate to dig up some dirt on the squeaky clean (for a politician, anyway) Mitt Romney.  Everything they have tried to use against Romney has fallen flat, and they’re out of ideas.  They need more dirt, so they have turned to Romney and they’re practically begging for his help.  But that rat bastard Romney just won’t budge!  How dare he..?

So far, the Democrats have tried everything they can think of to get Romney to help them, and none of it is getting enough traction in the press to force Romney’s hand.

Enter Harry Reid.

Obama and the DNC needed someone to escalate things into the realm of crazypants, and Reid fit the bill.  He’s perfect for the job.

The only thing Reid has to lose right now is his position as Majority Leader in the Senate, and he stands a much greater chance of holding on to that job if Obama gets re-elected.  As the Senate Majority Leader, the media is obligated to give him coverage, which spreads the lie almost as well as if Obama himself were to say it.  Reid can feel safe making the accusation from the Senate floor, because doing so gives him legal immunity from being taken to court for anything that he says, and Reid is bulletproof electorally.

Perfect!

Now DNC operatives and liberal pundits are free to distance themselves from Reid publicly, while rushing to the airwaves to claim that “Romney can clear all of this up by just releasing more tax returns”, which has been their goal all along.

While it is typical of the liberal mindset that the accused must prove himself innocent rather than the accuser proving guilt (at least when it comes to Republicans), that isn’t really something upon which anyone should focus.

The real thing of interest to a pundit like me is that the liberal sharks don’t smell any blood in the waters.  They really WANT to smell it, but they don’t…

They’re being denied their feeding frenzy, and it is making them slowly go insane (well, okay… more insane).

Expect them to get crazier as we get closer to November!

Someone pass the popcorn…

Who’s Really Full of Hate?

What a successful Chick-Fil-A Day!  It really was impressive! 

Unfortunately, as I explained in my article yesterday, I personally did not partake in the excitement.  But the lines at Chick-Fil-A outlets all over the country as conservatives, Christians, and many people who just felt strongly about free speech, came out to support the rights of businesses everywhere to hold their own opinions freely were very heartwarming.

Sounds like the opposite of hate to me.

See, in my world, which, as opposed to the world of liberals, has the ground below me and the sky above, hate is displayed by going after those people who disagree with your worldview, getting in their face, and screaming at them.

Unfortunately for Chick-Fil-A, they are very likely to see a lot of that hate today.  Ironically, that hate will be fomented at the behest of the very people who claim so often to oppose it.

I highly doubt that the liberals will stop at kissing, or whatever they plan to do, but even that is not a message of love and inclusion.  It is a desperate attempt to cause conflict and hope that it escalates so they can justify their narrative.

But why wait until today..?

If they honestly wanted a peaceful protest, they could easily have done so Wednesday.

I believe they hope that now that supporters of Chick-Fil-A have had their say, that they will be able to go in and do many things that most people will never see.  They certainly won’t record the most heinous of their actions, and wouldn’t publish any of it publicly on the internet, if they did.

Sounds like the opposite of peace to me.  In fact, it sounds really hateful.  But liberals never see the irony in someone foaming at the mouth and screaming about how hateful someone else may supposedly be.

If they were truly interested in love, instead of hate, they could certainly find a business that openly supports gay marriage and have a day of appreciation for them.  That, of course, is assuming that the liberals have any interest in getting anything more than water, like this guy.

They could be supporting a business that voices support for them, and instead they choose to try to tear down a business where the owners disagree with the way they think the world should be.

That, my friends, is very telling.  Our first instinct was to go out and build up the people we support, not tear down the people who disagree with us.  Their first instinct is always to destroy.

So, who is really full of hate, here..?

 

UPDATE:  So, this brilliant Mensa candidate pretty much confirms everything that I have just said here…   Warning:  Strong language, weird language, and some stuff that I’m not even sure IS language…

Chick-Fil-A Should Make Us All Proud

Okay, I feel like an idiot.

I realize that comment leaves me open to all sorts of snappy come-backs, but it is true, nonetheless.  See, I didn’t go to Chick-Fil-A yesterday.  I was planning to go, and then I forgot!

Please don’t hate me.

The closest Chick-Fil-A to my house is a good 30 minutes away, but it does happen to be close to the campus where I am attending college this year.  So, since I had orientation on August 1st, and that coincided with our day of support for Chick-Fil-A’s right to do business, I thought it was providence!  The only problem is that I got so wrapped up in orientation and all of the crap that comes with it, that it was only when I was pulling back into my driveway at the end of the day that I remembered where I had planned to eat.

Suddenly, I lamented my having eaten lunch in the cafeteria (and let me tell you, there was no small amount of remorse for having made that decision even before I remembered about Chick-Fil-A Day).

But you guys didn’t need me, did you..?

Normally I would chuckle at the notion of my being proud of a fast food chain.  I mean, why would I be proud?  I don’t design their food, or even serve it.  There are so few of them in my city that I rarely even get to eat there.  And I certainly wasn’t the one who stood up in support of traditional marriage at the risk of my right to operate my business.

But I am proud, even so.

I’m proud to be associated with the great many of you who stood up for Christians under attack by “tolerant” politicians seeking to deny them the right to operate.  The massive lines at Chick-Fil-A yesterday buoyed my spirit.  A clear message was sent yesterday, and I’m betting that more than a few Democrat operatives and strategists had trouble sleeping last night.  I never thought that I would see people getting heartburn from fast food without even eating it!

The liberals have good cause to be scared.  Their world is slowly crumbling around them.  They truly do not understand what happened yesterday, but they know it doesn’t look like a good thing for them.    If only they could fully grasp…

I believe that the turnout yesterday is going to look like a drop in the bucket when conservatives and libertarians show up at the polls in November, and you best believe that I won’t be too wrapped up in my own world to forget this time.

That has me proud… and them terrified!

An earlier article I wrote about Chick-Fil-A is here, if you would like to read it.

I would like to send a heartfelt thanks to all of the people who have taken the time to read my posts here.  This blog remains small compared to some others, but, in less than two weeks, it has grown exponentially because of you.  I greatly appreciate that.
