Yes, perhaps a bit of schadenfreude, but I certainly enjoy watching Leftists hoisted on the petard of their own purposeful choosing, and I further enjoy watching falsehoods and outright lies exposed to the faces of Leftists. To wit:
Clearly, Michelle Malkin is more than capable of removing the skeletal structure of Juan Williams. Williams, like an addled goof, smiles throughout it all. He offers no logical retorts or responses except religion. Williams offers only religion.
How so, you ask? Because Juan Williams and Leftists of his kind expect you to proffer only faith. They expect you to exude faith and simply believe. How strange that the Secular Left expect you to believe — hallelujah! — in Anthropomorphic Global Warming and — can I get another hallelujah! — in our Leftist Savior, Barack Hussein Obaka! Praise Obaka, peace be upon him!
And Williams, of course, is far from the worst of the Leftists in the media.
I just thought there needed to be some sense displayed today.
New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg said on Sunday: Sometimes government does know best. And in those cases, Americans should just cede their rights.
“I do think there are certain times we should infringe on your freedom,” Mr. Bloomberg said, during an appearance on NBC. He made the statement during discussion of his soda ban — just shot down by the courts — and insistence that his fight to control sugary drink portion sizes in the city would go forth.
And there you have it. Leftists in government are inherently smarter than you, more highly educated than you, prettier, dress finer, and are more than willing to impose their feelings and emotions upon you simply “for your own good” — no matter prior laws, no matter such niggling little things like the US Constitution or that quite troublesome Bill of Rights.
Yes, frankly, Leftists are simply better than you, me, all of us. So they’ll simply do what they will with the Proles, the Serfs, the Groundlings, because we are too stupid to be “allowed” to run our own lives.
The only thing Leftists want from us? Money. Fork over the cash and shut the fuck up.
National planning Cyprus-style solution for New Zealand

National planning Cyprus-style solution for New Zealand
The National Government are pushing a Cyprus-style solution to bank failure in New Zealand which will see small depositors lose some of their savings to fund big bank bailouts, the Green Party said today.
Open Bank Resolution (OBR) is Finance Minister Bill English’s favoured option dealing with a major bank failure. If a bank fails under OBR, all depositors will have their savings reduced overnight to fund the bank’s bail out.
“Bill English is proposing a Cyprus-style solution for managing bank failure here in New Zealand – a solution that will see small depositors lose some of their savings to fund big bank bailouts,” said Green Party Co-leader Dr Russel Norman.
“The Reserve Bank is in the final stages of implementing a system of managing bank failure called Open Bank Resolution. The scheme will put all bank depositors on the hook for bailing out their bank.
Again, an excellent idea — raiding the accounts of those who had nothing to do with the fiscal management of a given banking institution(s) — but who only made the mistake of having their accounts present at same.
You see? I said the concept would take off. Great ideas like this are starting to make their rounds and will spill over into other countries. Viral ideas for Leftists, anyone? ATM runs in New Zealand, anyone? And with ideas like this, why put money in a bank if it’s nothing but fodder for capricious government raids?
Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-IL), a member of the Democratic Party’s leadership in the House of Representatives, suggested to Jason Mattera at a Feb. 13 women’s rights rally that plans for an assault weapons ban and private-sales background checks were only the beginning of a broader gun control agenda extending to handguns as well.
Schakowsky evidently did not recognize Mattera, a conservative video journalist and senior investigative reporter for Talk Radio Network, who infamously confronted Vice President Joe Biden in the Capitol. (Mattera introduced himself to Schakowsky by name but did not indicate that he was filming or that he is conservative.) She spoke to Mattera as if he were a fellow gun control enthusiast–and Mattera played along, eliciting answers about Schakowsky’s enthusiasm for gun control.
It’s no surprise that Demorats, Leftists, Progressives and the Obama Regime wish to abrogate the US Constitution and the Bill of Rights, particularly the 2nd Amendment because — once the 2nd falls — the 1st Amendment is up for bid.
And then the individual has no control, and Government ultimate control. One then becomes a Prole, a Groundling, a Serf, a Subject to the King.
In the exchange:
Schakowsky: We’re on a roll now, and I think we’ve got to take the–you know, we’re gonna push as hard as we can and as far as we can.
Mattera: So the assault weapons ban is just the beginning?
Schakowsky: Oh absolutely. I mean, I’m against handguns. We have, in Illinois, the Council Against Handgun… something [Violence]. Yeah, I’m a member of that. So, absolutely.
Mattera: We’ll never get a handgun ban with the Second Amendment as stated.
Schakowsky: I don’t know. I don’t know that we can’t. And there may be an allowance, once again, for communities–I have communities in my district that prohibited handguns within their borders. The rights of municipalities and states to view that as a sensible way to keep people safe–I don’t think it’s precluded.
Clear evidence, in my book.
This is nothing new. Mr Obama himself quite clearly stated that no one should own firearms.
In his new book, At the Brink, economist and author John R. Lott Jr., assesses the presidency of Barack Obama and recalls conversations regarding gun laws they had while working at the University of Chicago.
In Chapter Three, Mr. Lott discusses gun-control and takes the reader back to his time at the University of Chicago, where he and then-professor Barack Obama spoke on numerous occasions about guns in America.
“I don’t believe people should be able to own guns,” Obama told Lott one day at the University of Chicago Law School.
(A) chapter (of the book) documents the actions that Obama has taken on guns, citing the following:
In 1996, Obama supported a ban on handguns
In 1998, he supported a ban on the sale of all semi-automatic guns
In 2004, he advocated banning gun sales within five miles of a school or park, which would have shut down nearly all gun stores
Mr Obama has spoken many times. His original words are clear and undiluted: he’s coming for your American rights. He fervently believes that no individual should own any kind of firearm.
As far as Mr Obama in concerned: no American civilian is responsible or can be trusted. No one. Not you. Not me.
On February 22, “Right Views” reported that a growing number of firearm companies have suspended the sale of guns to states, counties, cities and municipalities that restrict their citizens’ rights to own them.
In just two weeks, the number of companies participating in what has been named the “Firearms Equality Movement,” has more than tripled from 34 companies to 118.
The Police Loophole lists every company and links to the statements that each has released regarding their new policies.
Let me just throw this into the mix: what did the Obama Administration already do regarding private business in America? That’s right, he forced the government into seizure of two of the three largest American automakers, GM and Chrysler. The result no one saw coming or wanted to report? Oh yes, that hundreds of dealerships closed.
“It is not at all clear that the greatly accelerated pace of the dealership closings during one of the most severe economic downturns in our nation’s history was either necessary for the sake of the companies’ economic survival or prudent for the sake of the nation’s economic recovery,” the report said.
What happens when the Obama Administration can’t get any more Colt or S&W or Ruger or Remington parts or firearms?
