An Apology Would Be Nice

It’s difficult to be an American these days.  At home and especially abroad.  At home for having to look across the Thanksgiving table at the stupid effing faces of the people you know who voted for Obama and engage politics and elections as some sort of football game where one side roots against the other and at the end of the day we all go home as if there are no consequences to their victory.  And abroad, for the complete mischaracterization of what most Americans, want, believe in or stand for as a result of this historically ignorant and apologetic Marxist being our face to the world.

Example:  I spent a few weeks in England a couple of months ago and it was Libya, Libya, Libya on the BBC 24/7.  My cockney accented colleagues were incredulous when I explained that Libya was not even a blip on the radar in the US.  Why would it be after all?  Obam-er, as they call him, had launched an unprovoked war without Congressional approval and the media would be forced to call attention to it.  What was it?  Oh, yes – Leading From Behind ™ until he’s caught and then it was all our idea.  The  collateral damage, innocent civilians killed or the rampant post-Qaddafi horror show , even now, hasn’t seeped its way into American newspapers or evening broadcasts yet.

It is truly amazing what a US President can accomplish when not being held to account by the media.  Give or take a few raped, attractive female journalists.  Rather than focus on these Arab Spring indiscretions, we should strategically deploy our vast reserves of fugly Journalism majorettes to take a few for the team.

Regardless, there are those of you who know who you are.  Braindead morons high from an allnight Hopium bender who have cowered away from the responsibility of their idiotic choice.  They’ll be crawling out of their holes again over the next year.  Oblivious to the economic destruction they personally wrought on their neighbors and themselves.  It’s all Bush and the bankers’ faults they’ll say not once looking at the Goldman Sachs revolving door of this administration.  Sanguine at the thought of unelected bureaucrats deciding what company can stay in business and which should go under, which 40 year old man or woman should get a prostate or breast cancer exam, which Department of Homeland Security agent is best qualified to fingerbang your four year old.

And while international incident upon international incident compounds your tragic choice becomes more evident.  You were wrong and it’s high time you admitted it.

Village Idiot Amber Alert:

  Often seen with a porker stuffed into a sausage casing or eating a hot dog.

A nuclear Pokkystan just cut off 40% of our supply routes because of your drone attacks, the European Union is on the verge of collapse, China and Russia are openly backing a nut who is threatening to bomb anyone associated with us in the Middle East, 16%  real unemployment in the U.S. while  felonious  mobs coordinated by one of your head political advisors rapes, murders and threatens anyone who dares to continue holding a job.

Think I’ll just opine on the state of those 1-percenter NBA spoiled brats and their professional handball negotiations while catching a game and my 88th round of golf since elected.  After all, we’ve got a few hours before the next fundraiser.

An apology would be nice.  But since you’re void of anything resembling honor or honesty, we’ll just be sure to check for photo IDs next November.  :)  HaHa.



End Corporate Weed!

Everyone has a right to free education!
Everyone has the right to free healthcare!
Preach it brother!!
Everyone has the right to internet access!
Woo hoo!
Everyone has the right to some of your doobage!
Woah, bro, step off! I HAVE weed.

I know the Occupiers like to blame the fringe for acts of rape and murder, but when you’re throwing a party dedicated to tearing down the “system”, well you can’t be surprised by the arrival of folks who actually live that message. This movement has more fringes than a tacky faux Persian rug.

These comfy white kids and their liberal enablers in the media play pantomime revolution. My concern is that out of the mess comes another Bill Ayers or John Kerry type. As history shows, the “masses” generate chaos and in steps a person of privilege who fills the vacuum with something much worse than our imperfect republic. Not that I think this little hissy fit is Russia 1917 waiting for its Lenin, but it is the same pattern and should it come to pass, all the limousine liberals in Hollywood won’t be spared. But it is fun for now for to indulge in peasant populism.

NYTea Party?

Here is a clear headed quote from the reliably anti-corporate, pro-union, teabagger hatin’ New York Times.

On the surface, Greece and Italy seem remarkably alike. Both countries have entrenched patronage networks that predate the European Union by centuries and suffocating regulations and work rules. And both Mr. Papademos, 64, and Mr. Monti, 68, the president of Bocconi University in Milan, have close ties to European Union officials, who are taking a strong hand in managing the affairs of both countries because the fate of the euro hangs in the balance.

Both face daunting changes. In Italy, a new government will be asked to carry out labor and tax reforms and other growth-enhancing measures. It will also have to write a new electoral law.

Substitute New Jersey, the AFL-CIO and the EPA for Italy and Greece and you have a National Review article.

Rent Seekers and Other Strange Parasites

Have you received any emails or letters claiming you as part of a class-action lawsuit? I get about three a years and it is usually about as pointless of this crime here:

If you purchased an Apple iTunes gift card, you could get benefits under a class action settlement.

A proposed settlement of a class action lawsuit could affect you if you purchased an Apple iTunes gift card and the card or packaging to which it was attached contained language that “songs are 99¢” or other language indicating that songs are priced at 99¢ (referred to as a “99¢ iTunes gift card” in the rest of this Notice).

Why yes, I probably did buy an iTunes gift card that said Songs are 99¢. So what’s the problem officer?

The lawsuit claimed that Apple advertised, distributed, and sold 99¢ iTunes gift cards. It further alleged that in April 2009, Apple raised the price of certain songs at the iTunes Store from 99¢ to $1.29 and that 99¢ iTunes gift card holders who purchased $1.29 songs were overcharged. Apple denies all allegations and has asserted many defenses.

Good Lord man! Kudos to the eagle-eyed lawyers who vigilantly guard my well being against corporate fascists. To think that Apple would cleverly work a 30¢ scam into an innocuous “promotion” then manipulate space-time where prices would rise in the future. I feel like you’re the handsome Superman who just rushed to the scene and saved my virtue from a would be rapist.

The settlement will provide you a $3.25 iTunes Store credit if you purchased or received a 99¢ iTunes gift card and used it to purchase one or more $1.29 songs from the iTunes Store on or before May 10, 2010.

Oh. Well thank you anyway, lawyer people for taking up the banner of Justice and righting a $3.25 cent wrong. I’m sure you got the same $3.25 reward from this and you’re cool with that because it was about doing the right thing.

Did Apple actually do anything malicious or illegal in this case?

Apple denies all allegations and has asserted many defenses. The parties are entering into this settlement to avoid burdensome and costly litigation. The settlement is not an admission of wrong-doing or an indication that any law was violated.

In another era, one might call this a protection racket. But Apple is an evil corporation (OK, I’ll concede this one) and “the people” get a free trinket. So it’s A-OK!

UPDATE iOwnTheWorld makes the connection between slimy lawyers and Democrats.
