And people ask

why we are stuck in the situation we're in?

It's because it would appear that the bulk of the members of Congress are lying, cheating thieves.

"Many members" of Congress suffer from the same disclosure issues as Rep. Charles Rangel (D.N.Y.), one of his allies said Wednesday.

Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) downplayed the seriousness of allegations against Rangel that he failed to disclose sources of income and pay taxes on some properties, saying that many lawmakers suffer from innocent lapses in judgment when filing mandatory financial disclosure forms.

"I want to tell you, there are many members who, if you go back over all of their records, over all of the years, you're going to find that there were disclosures that were not made," Waters said during an appearance on MSNBC Wednesday morning.
Republicans were trying to remove the corrupt, thieving and lying Charlie Rangle from his position of head of one of the most powerful committees in Congress. His buddies on the Democrat side of the isle though, don't see a problem with the chairman of the committee that oversees the IRS and sets tax code for the United States having broken the very laws that he is responsible for making the rest of us live by.

Here's how they cook the books....

First sentence reads:
NEW YORK – President Barack Obama's approval ratings are starting to rise after declining ever since his inauguration, new poll figures show as the country's mood begins to brighten.
Leading the reader to believe that things are getting better for the messiah in chief - as for the first time since his inauguration his poll numbers have started to rise.
An Associated Press-GfK poll says 56 percent of those surveyed in the past week approve of Obama's job performance, up from 50 percent in September. It's the first time since he took office in January that his rating has gone up.
Sounds pretty rosy for the White House, right?

Well, you have to go to the poll itself to find the real story, and that one's buried near the end of the poll questions. On page 23 of 32, the question is: "Do you consider yourself a Democrat, a Republican, an Independent, or none of these?"

Total Democrat = 43%
Total Republican = 32%

So, right off the top you've got an 11% difference in sampling, and that difference favors the president. Take a look at the sampling and you'll see around 90% of the Democrats are in the strong to moderate category and around 60% of Republicans are in the same category.

The Democrats that responded tend to be more liberal and left leaning and the Republicans that responded are nearly evenly divided into thirds - equally spread between strong, moderate and independent.

Add those two things up and you'll find that this "independent" poll ain't so unbiased. Yet I can promise you that the headlines tomorrow will read "Obama's poll numbers make strong turnaround" or some such tripe.

But the fact of the matter is that the poll numbers are cooked, and the president is still searching vainly for a cogent thought.

Come and take it

What you see here in the video, dear readers, are Chavezista thugs stealing a family farm in the name of redistribution. Chavez, mind you, and Obama are both reading from the same book.

VIDEO: Venezuelan farm stolen by Chavez

A group of red shirt-wearing Chavista thugs show up at a farm and seize the farm in the name of the government, under the pretext that the 103 hectare farm is “idle land” and that the law allows them to take it over for “food production.”

The farmer protests politely, explaining that he’s been raising cattle on his farm for 23 years. He is rebuffed by another guy, who says, “this is not going to be a debate; this is a public act approved by the Venezuelan people. I’m governor and I’m here to ensure public order. There won’t be a debate, I ask you to listen to the document, after which the public will take charge of the land.”

When the farmer’s wife protests, he tells her to discuss it in court.

Chavez controls the judiciary.

The farmer is told to sign the form, and then to gather the animals so they can be accounted for.

I will also point out, dear readers, that this tragedy would have been averted with a coupla guys armed to the teeth. But, oh, wait.... Chavez has made it nearly impossible for private citizens to legally own firearms. A few well placed .223 or .308 rounds would have made all the difference in this little encounter.....

CNN Fact Checks Last Saturday's SNL Obama-Razzing Skit

Really!! I'm not making it up!!

CNN actually fact checked a comedy skit on Saturday Night Live. You see, making fun of the chosen one is verboten under the Ministry of Propaganda - doesn't NBC know that?

The skit was actually kinda funny. Not rip roaring, gut busting funny, but I got a giggle or two out of it. And really, I couldn't find anything that SNL said that was off base. Other than weakening our country's national defense and our alliances with eastern Europe, France and Britain; the BS stimulus package and the nightmare of debt that has left the country with, he's done squat. And frankly, that's more than enough.

Romo, Romo, wherefore are thou, Romo?

Live blogging the game here against Denver and if the Cowboys manage to pull this one off it'll be very, very lucky.

Romo is continuing his streak of suck ass games this year and the running game has totally dried up in the 2nd half.

The 'pokes continue to look flat, flat, flat and largely uninspired and at this rate if they have a winning record this year it'll be a miracle. They've got the Chiefs next week which should be a win... but man they do not look crisp today at all. Again.

War? What war?

While Obama, Michelle and the Oprah were busy hobnobbing (to no avail) with the IOC, the chosen one found a little time to finally meet with his general on the ground in Afghanistan.

Official word from the White House, though, is that no decision about the war in Afghanistan has been made, but they did manage to achieve
a consensus to hold more meetings, up to five, including two next week. The president will take "the next several weeks to review our strategy," Mr. Gibbs said.
This is what happens when liberal Democrats run the country's foreign policy. Meetings. And never mind the fact that for over a month now, there has been a call for more troops on the ground by the man running the show in Afghanistan.
In the past month, the president has found the time to play golf - four times. He's had links legend Arnold Palmer and other top golfers over to the White House. He's shot some hoops with friends and yukked it up with hockey's Pittsburgh Penguins.
He's celebrated Ramadan at the White House, eulogized newsman Walter Cronkite in New York City, attended several fundraisers (including Thursday afternoon's luncheon), appeared on David Letterman's late-night show (one of eight interviews), delivered two speeches to AFL-CIO rallies and dropped by the Washington Monument and the Jefferson Memorial for a visit with his wife and daughters.
And instead of spending time figuring out how to defend this country, the chosen one has been sidelined with some very important tasks, like nominating
Carolyn W. Colvin to be deputy commissioner of Social Security. He picked Paul K. Martin to be inspector general of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. He issued an executive order demanding federal workers stop texting while driving government vehicles.
Yes, texting while driving has reached a more important part of the president's day than making decisions over a war that he campaigned on:
Democrat Obama declared that the failed policy in Iraq -- which he argued was never the central front in the war on terror -- has distracted attention from the growing terrorist threat in Afghanistan and proves the need to withdraw from Iraq. "If another attack on our homeland comes, it will likely come from the same region where 9/11 was planned," he said in a speech in Washington. "And yet today, we have five times more troops in Iraq than Afghanistan."
So, I guess since the surge won the war in Iraq, the distraction Obama mentioned during the campaign is gone.... And now we find ourselves distracted by texting while driving. Oh how the mighty have fallen.

I believe that this is really the reason why the previous worst president in American history has been out there talking all kind of smack about how racist the country is and getting everyone worked up. He knows that the worse it gets for Obama, the better chances there are that he'll be relegated to the 2nd worst president in American history - less than a year into Obama's term, I think it's already safe to say that Carter's no longer the worst president we've seen in our lifetimes. And contrary to Carter's idiocy, Obama's pathetic behavior and America's reaction to it has nothing to do with the color of his skin. Rather, it's that Americans tend to not suffer fools very well and Obama and his corrupt cronies are proving themselves to be quite the fool.
