Shiftiness And Doublespeak

Some random observations from Monday night’s Tea Party GOP debate in Tampa, Fla. There seemed to be a great deal of shiftiness and doublespeak! And I wonder what the mainstream media think about this: If Ron Paul is unelectable, why are so many of the candidates echoing his positions?

The Rape Of Amy Alkon

While preparing to go through airport security on March 31, Amy Alkon noticed everyone in the line she was in was receiving an “enhanced pat-down” by Transportation Security Administration gropers. Alkon was determined not to go through the scanner. But she was unprepared for the sexual assault that was about to take place.

When “Incendiary” Rhetoric Doesn’t Matter

The Teamsters union’s lead thug Jimmy Hoffa had some profane and incendiary rhetoric in store for a crowd at a campaign event for President Barack Obama in Detroit on Monday.

Government Facilitating High Food Prices

Inflation-driven rising food prices, consumers with less discretionary income and alternatives to the hormone- and antibiotic-laden chickens found in grocery stores have caused a drop in the demand for store-bought chicken. Rather than let Big Chicken deal with the fact that it erred by raising production 4 percent as demand was decreasing, the United States Department of Agriculture (read the American taxpayer), is bailing out chicken producers to the tune of $40 million.

In His Own Words

Fox News’ Chris Wallace is finally treating Representative Ron Paul with the respect he deserves. Rather than try and paint him as a kook and hitting him with “gotcha” questions, Wallace gives an honest interview and allows Paul to answer his questions.

Don’t Jump The Gun

In track, a gun is fired to signal the start of the race. If a runner leaves the block before the starter fires his pistol, it is called jumping the gun. The Republican race for a Presidential nominee seems to have started already, but I want to caution you about jumping the gun. By that, I mean don’t glom onto the candidate flavor-of-the-month until you have vetted him or her properly.

Ron Paul CAN Win!

Despite the best efforts of the mainstream media and the Republican apparatchik to ignore him or paint him as a kook, Representative Ron Paul can win the Republican nomination. The MSM is finally recognizing that Paul’s message of liberty, sound money and ending foreign intervention is resonating with a growing segment of the American electorate.

The USDA Food Safety Joke On Us

The United States Department of Agriculture knew a dangerous form of salmonella was present at a Cargill, Inc. turkey plant but did not inform the company until after one person died and 77 others were sickened by the bacteria. Cargill and the USDA announced the recall of ground turkey from the Cargill plant in Springdale, Ark., on Aug. 3. It was the third-largest meat recall in history and involved 36 million pounds of ground turkey.

The MSM And Downgrade Absurdity

The meme of the week, that the Standard & Poor’s downgrade of the United States’ sovereign credit rating was caused by the Tea Party, is absurd. First, S&P and its rating system are irrelevant. This is the same ratings agency that gave A ratings to Lehman Brothers and other teetering banks right before they crashed and burned in 2008.

The 1st Amendment And Truck Decorations

A woman in South Carolina is facing a jury trial for choosing to decorate her truck with an object that the local police chief believes is obscene. I feel that obscenity laws are like the Federal government’s own proverbial gateway drugs: First it makes obscenity laws, then there is systemic censorship, then the Constitution is being rewritten to leave out the 1st Amendment altogether.
