Racism in Iowa

How else can you explain this?

Where are all of the Hollywood celebrities holding telethons asking for help in restoring Iowa and helping the folks affected by the floods?

Where is all the media asking the tough questions about why the federal government hasn't solved the problem? Asking where the FEMA trucks (and trailers) are?

Why isn't the Federal Government relocating Iowa people to free hotels in Chicago?

When will Spike Lee say that the Federal Government blew up the levees that failed in Des Moines?

Where are Sean Penn and the Dixie Chicks?

Where are all the looters stealing high-end tennis shoes and big screen television sets?

When will we hear Governor Chet Culver say that he wants to rebuild a "vanilla" Iowa, because that's the way God wants it?

Where is the hysterical 24/7 media coverage complete with reports of cannibalism?

Where are the people declaring that George Bush hates white, rural people?

How come in 2 weeks, you will never hear about the Iowa flooding ever again?

C'mon, the last one is easy! You'll never hear about it again because pallid Midwesterners suffering from a natural disaster is nowhere near as important as minorities who are hit with a catastrophe; after all, Dick Cheny would never turn his weather-making machine against his own people, right? When minorities are struck with a natural event, it is preventable, and an impeachable offense.

"Remember New Orleans!!"

But when the gates of hell open up upon Iowa? Well, whether they are Boy Scouts slaughtered by a twister, or townfolks threatened by a flood, one can almost see the smirk of the mainstream media as they think to themselves, "Where's their precious Jesus now?"
When it comes to middle-class Midlle-Americans, well, we've got it coming - actually, we all deserve it it a kind of way, right? (Unless it is something the media can spin against Republicans, like, say, the housing "crisis". Then middle-class Americans who used their homes as an ATM machine are to be pitied, of course).

The obligitory minimal reporting is provided, and the press hustles its rumpled self off, looking for something more likely to fit their PC narrative, as the citizens of Iowa are once again left to fend for themselves....

John McCain, Barack Obama, and Ayn Rand

Barack Obama, April 2008:

Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama will push on Friday for passage of a bill to put the huge pay packages of some U.S. corporate executives under greater scrutiny.
The Illinois senator has introduced “say-on-pay” legislation that would give investors more of a voice in setting executive compensation packages.
“We’ve seen what happens when CEOs are paid for doing a job no matter how bad a job they’re doing. We can’t afford to postpone reform any longer,” Obama said in prepared remarks for delivery later on Friday.
“That’s why Washington needs to act immediately to pass this legislation.”

John McCain, June 2008:

"Americans are right to be offended when the extravagant salaries and severance deals of CEOs ... bear no relation to the success of the company or the wishes of shareholders," he will say, adding that some of those chief executives helped bring on the country's housing crisis and market troubles.
"If I am elected president, I intend to see that wrongdoing of this kind is called to account by federal prosecutors....

And finally, Ayn Rand, speaking through the character of Ellsworth Toohey in The Foutainhead:

Watch the pincer movement. If you’re sick of one version, we push you into the other. We get you coming and going. We’ve closed the doors. We’ve fixed the coin. Heads—collectivism, and tails—collectivism. Fight the doctrine which slaughters the individual with a doctrine which slaughters the individual. Give up your soul to a council—or give it up to a leader. But give it up, give it up, give it up. My technique . . . . Offer poison as food and poison as antidote....

You can substitute "climate change" for "CEO pay" if you wish; Ayn is still spot-on, as ususal....

"Change" I Can Believe In !

Obama "changes" every five seconds, depending on who he's talking to...

Barack Obama has strongly backed Israel in his first foreign policy speech since becoming the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee...

Speaking to the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, an influential pro-Israel lobbying group, Obama said, "Any agreement with the Palestinian people must preserve Israel's identity as a Jewish state, with secure, recognized and defensible borders. Jerusalem will remain the capital of Israel, and it must remain undivided."

In his address, Obama also faced head-on rumors that he is a Muslim and does not support the Jewish state, calling himself a "true friend of Israel."....

Uh huh. And do you want to see how fast Obama can "change" his tune on that?

....Obama's campaign backtracked on bombshell remarks he made Wednesday that Jerusalem should remain the "undivided" capital of Israel, according to the Jerusalem Post.

An aide later softened Obama's comments - which sparked anger in the Palestinian community - saying the sides will have to negotiate "an agreement that they both can live with."

The adviser explained that by an undivided Jerusalem, Obama did not mean that it wouldn't also serve as the Palestinian capital as well. The Jewish community balked at the news.

"The Orthodox Union is extremely disappointed in this revision of Senator Obama's important statement about Jerusalem," Nathan Diament, of the Union of Orthodox Jewish Congregations, told the paper.

Get used to disappointment, Rabbi...me, I'd stick with Obama's "changed" view, which echos that of his anti-semetic pastor of twenty years...

Doesn't matter, and Obama is smart enough to know it. If Hitler rose from the 12th Rung of Hell from whence he dwells and captured the Democratic nomination (not terribly unlikely given the sentiments of the far-left element of the party), he would still likely capture 75% of the Jewish vote.

"What, you want me to vote for that Republican fellow? That Hitler guy, he may not be the best thing for the Jews, but he's sure right about socialized medicine and gun control...""

UPDATE: More waffling from the terrorist sympathizer -well, from his spokesman:

He refused, however, to rule out other configurations, such as the city also serving as the capital of a Palestinian state or Palestinian sovereignty over Arab neighborhoods.

I see.....

Thank You, Democrats!

Remember the election in 2006? The one in which the Democratic party took control of both houses of Congress and vowed to take the country in a "different" direction?

Well, where did things stand a little over a year and a half ago, back in October of 2006? Let's take a quick ride on the WAYBAC machine, shall we?

1) Consumer confidence stood at a 2 1/2 year high;
2) Regular gasoline sold for $2.19 a gallon;
3) The unemployment rate was 4.5%.

Since voting in a Democratic Congress in 2006 we have seen:

1) Consumer confidence plummet,
2) The cost of regular gasoline soar close to $4.00 a gallon;
3) Unemployment jump up to 5% (a 10% increase);
4) $2.3 trillion in equity value simply evaporate (stock and mutual fund losses) across all American households
5) American's home equity drop by $1.2 trillion dollars;
6) 1% of American homes fall into foreclosure.

What will they do for an encore, once Barack Hussien Messiah Obama is elected? Maybe he'll sign this bill, the death knell of the American economy, once 'ol George is out of the way?

And once chaos results, whom will they have left to blame?
