Fascist McCain Sponsors War Powers Act to Give President Power to Declare War at Will

Not that this president nor any other president, at least as far back as FDR, has ever sought Congressional approval to go to war, it seems McCain wants a new bill that simply gives that power, already assumed, to the standing president. Some would call that placating to the neocons but isn’t it really nothing more than fascism?

How Seriously Does McCain Take the Killing of Human Life?

At a 3-hour hearing in which lying, cheating, thieving scumbag politicians were supposed to be listening to the liars lying about evidence to justify the United States attacking and killing Syrian people in order to stop the attacking and killing of Syrian people, John McCain is caught on camera sitting in the hearing playing video poker. And we thought these crooked, narcissistic, hair ball, vermin were careless and callous in not bothering to read Obamacare or probably any other law they voted on. And we are supposed to support our government…..because WHY?

I read earlier this morning a commentary that included the thought that computers were designed in order to make man more productive. And then, somebody invented the Internet.

I might suggest treating the brain dead, useless, pols like the children they are and taking away their electronic toys while at work but these crooked bastards would make a law that would prohibit the voters from using electronic games while exempting themselves.

Why can’t people see through this nonsense.

In a side note and yet related, Greg Gutfeld, a member of Fox News’ “The Five”, who never has anything intelligent to say, yesterday made the only rational comment I’ve ever heard him speak. In describing the Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing with General Dempsey, John Kerry and Chuck Hagel, Gutfeld said it was like watching a very boring and orchestrated event. Too bad he didn’t really understand what he was saying or have the ambition to discover why it was a boring and ORCHESTRATED event.

Day 83 – No Executive Orders

MISREPRESENTATION!

83 days and nothing has been posted on the White House website about 23 executive orders on gun rights/gun control. But not to fear. I’m sure the President was deep in thought and planning during his rounds of golf over the past two weekends.

Big Sis Lies Again – Puts Border Patrol at Risk

Is it not enough that Big Sis lies to lawmakers and Americans and tells them she’s saving money by purchasing ammunition for the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) in bulk? Here’s the latest from Janet Napolitano. In an email sent from DHS to the Border Patrol, DHS tells agents Big Sis has a shortage of ammo and therefore cannot use extra ammunition for proficiency training.

Enforcement Personnel,

Due to budget concerns and ammunition availability, we will not be getting issued any proficiency ammunition for next quarter. In addition to these reductions, we are also being limited to qualification ammo only. What this means to you is that you will not receive the normal 150 rounds for practice and we will not have any extra ammunition for a combat course following normal qualifications.

If you have the ammunition available and would like extra practice during your qualification day, the firearms instructors will have a training course available for Indio Station Personnel, keeping in mind basic marksmanship skills as well as tactical training with a limited amount of ammunition. You are not required to bring your own ammunition.

If you do not have extra ammo to bring, you will be given extra time to clean and maintain your issued handgun as well as station long arms.

If you have any questions about this quarters (sic) quals please feel free to send me your concerns.

There are some estimates that calculate DHS has purchased in excess of 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition in the past few months; enough ammo to carry out a 40-year war by some estimates.

Is this a scare tactic or more accurately, putting in harms way border patrol agents as a means of playing politics with sequestration? Or perhaps Big Sis is withholding all that ammo for something planned that only the Obama Administration knows about. She has 2,700 plus tanks too.

For an administration that promised to be the most transparent in history, when they consistently and persistently take the time for dog and pony shows, like the fake signing of executive orders and addictive lying, why should there exist an ounce of trust between the American people and this corrupt administration?

Long Lines to Buy Ammo

At a gun show over the weekend in Kalifornia, lines formed for hours of people waiting just to buy ammunition. In Texas, like much of the U.S., ammunition is difficult to purchase anywhere. It is even effecting law enforcement training and qualification.

And gun and ammo manufacturers say they are making ammo as fast as they possibly can.

Who’s The Best Gun Rights Supporters?

According to the Wall Street Journal, all the hoopla about making access and ownership to guns more restrictive, states proposing and passing bills to ease restrictions on guns far outweigh anti gun legislation. But most wouldn’t know that because the biased media works very hard to ensure that we don’t get any truth – only a perpetuation of anti gun hatred. Thank you WSJ for revealing this information.

John McCain Dumb as a Fox

My advice to readers is to pay little attention to what the media wants you to hear or read that Sen. John McCain says. It is seldom the truth or at least the truth with any real outward meaning. According to a report from The Hill, McCain says he doesn’t understand the threats coming from within his own party to filibuster the Senate anti gun bill.

“What are we afraid of? Why would we not want… if this issue is as important as all of us think it is, why not take it to one of the world’s greatest deliberative bodies – that’s one of the greatest exaggerations in history by the way – but you know why not take it up, an amendment and debate. The American people will profit from it,”

McCain may be a master at saying what the people want to hear in order to appear as though he was looking out for their best interest, while doing everything he can to fulfill his own mission. Examine the words he chooses – “world’s greatest deliberative bodies” (meaning both the House and Senate); “What are we afraid of?”; “The American people will profit from it.”

Some form of an anti rights gun bill will come out of the Senate but it is quite certain to fail in the House and McCain knows that. McCain fears for any power he may lose through filibuster powers and the fact that it appears his outdated crony republican party is on the way out. This must be troubling, not only to him, but for the Council of Foreign Relations, among other entities, that might be fearing the loss of McCain’s power and influence. He needs all the help he can get and will resort to saying things that mean little concerning issues but has everything to do with retaining his power.

I Ate My Dog For Homework

Two things in play in our society today and one of them dominates all others. The second issue is that our society struggles to laugh at themselves and find humor in things where humor is intended to be found. The first and most dominant point of departure is hypocrisy.

Hypocrisy reveals myriad things in a society, one of which is the manifestation of people’s incompetency to make legitimate judgements about much of anything worthwhile. Hypocrisy is dishonesty and when we exemplify that we are also showing the world our anger and hatred, all of which drives our bias.

A current example playing out in this nation is the joke telling dealing with the topic of President Barack Obama’s revelation that when he was a kid growing up in Indonesia he ate dog. Do rational people care about this beyond the obvious, that either the president’s family was poor and that’s all they could afford or eating dog was acceptable table fare?

Even though I think we as a people are losing our ability to laugh, I still believe that existing in a society that considers laughing healthy, we have always had a strong yen for humor. Once, every comedian and late night talk show host made gobs of money telling jokes about presidents. We all laughed no matter who was in the White House. Of course some presidents became better targets of the quipsters, mostly dependent upon what they did or said. I even recall impersonators like Rich Little, who struggled to impersonate some presidents and then got plenty of mileage from others, sometimes by just the simple way they looked or the tone and quality of their voice. Think of the actor John Wayne, who had a distinct walk and a voice to go with it.

Today, people too often tend to limit their laughter based on political bias. This is where the hypocrisy comes into play. A joke about George Bush may make some laugh and others not, taking offense that they are being made fun of or that somehow it’s not fair. If the same comedian told a joke about Barack Obama, the roles become reversed. Don’t misunderstand me here. This hypocrisy swings in all directions and the worst kind is that coming from those who refuse to recognize it for what it is.

Let’s also be honest, if that’s possible anymore. Barack Obama is half black and half white. We have struggled as a society to get beyond racism and bigotry and as such, I’m positive in my assessment that a lot of restraint has been shown in targeting Barack Obama for jokes out of fear of just what has happened; accusations of racism.

President Obama ate dog as a child. What’s wrong with that? I’ve written about eating dog in our history and that eating dog is still the cuisine of some societies. When President Jefferson sent Captains Lewis and Clark to find a passage to the Pacific Ocean, neither of the men or their expedition would have survived had they not eaten dog. But as humans, we are prone to make jokes about it, I think some because we are uncomfortable with talking about the subject, but mostly because humor defines us.

On the website The People’s Cube, an entire array of photoshopped pictures depicting President Obama eating or chasing after dogs with the intent of eating them, can be found.

On John McCain’s Twitter page he posted a photo of his son’s bull dog and ends his Tweet by saying, “I’m sorry Mr. President, he’s not on the menu!”

When asked at a press conference, White House Press Secretary, Jay Carney, struggled to answer the question as to whether the President was aware of all the jokes but he couldn’t resist making a joke about the jokes.

If you click on the link to John McCain’s Twitter page, you can read some of the comments irate people left to John McCain about his sick sense of humor.

But what about the hypocrisy? Recall, if you will, that not long ago, there were a lot of people very upset about the movie “The Grey”. Two issues played out here. The movie was about a plane that crashed in the middle of nowhere in Alaska. Survival was key, i.e. finding food and prevent becoming food. The plot is about these survivors fending off a hungry pack of wolves. The first issue of outrage was that the makers of the movie dared depict wolves in a truth setting; that they are bloodthirsty killers. The second issue is that the wolves they killed, they ate.

Hang on for a second. This is a movie! But yet there was still outrage. In addition, before filming of the movie began, the cast and staff tried eating some wolf meat in order to gain a better understanding of what they were up against. Doing so has “dogged” them ever since. (See what I mean?)

The point is there was outrage over this and I recall reading in several places among the media outlets, including Online, that people just did not eat dog. That our society (American) has never eaten dog, etc. etc. etc. This is what prompted me to dig back through the Lewis and Clark Expedition journals to recount all the times they not only ate dog meat buy preferred it over deer or elk. In addition this dog meat they ate, included domestic dogs they bought from the natives and coyotes and wolves they were able to kill during their journey.

The hypocrisy here is that while there was outrage that dogs were depicted as being eaten in a movie, there was no outrage at the disclosure that President Obama actually did eat dog as a kid. Instead, their biased anger is directed at those who chose to make jokes about it, seemingly now supporting the eating of dog….well, depending upon who did the eating I guess.

One can argue that most of these jokes originated from people or organizations that are working to elect a different president, but why is this all of a sudden different or deserve a different level of scrutiny? Campaigns bring out the worst in everybody.

What the reasons are that President Obama ate dog as a kid, I don’t know, nor do I care. I think some of the jokes are funny. I find some a bit over the top. I certainly can understand a person who adores dogs, finding offense in some of these photos and jokes. And I find the same level of humor disseminated the same way regardless of which side of the political aisle they walk on.
