Frankly Sad News

December 2, 2011 by  

Darn! Now, I can’t help defeat him. I was kind of sad to learn that after more than 30 years of pushing this country further and further left, Massachusetts’ favorite gay caballero, Barney Frank, would not be seeking re-election next year. I always enjoy sending a few dollars to anyone running against my least-favorite politicians. And I can tell you, there’s never a dearth of choices. Are there any other Bay Staters I should help defeat?

Barack Obama campaigns like crazy, and you pay for it. The following statistics shouldn’t surprise you, but they help confirm that our President is the duplicitous rascal we all know he is. Between Jan. 1 and Nov. 17 of his third year in office, Bill Clinton held 40 events in 24 days in the States his handlers considered vital for re-election. During the same period, George W. Bush held 49 events in 34 days. As of Nov. 17, Obama had attended 54 events in 11 battleground States over 42 days. He has attended two more since then. Taxpayers foot the bill for almost every trip.

NBC apologizes to Michele Bachmann. When Presidential contender Michele Bachmann appeared on “Late Night With Jimmy Fallon” last week, the band celebrated her entrance by playing a vulgar rock song, “Lyin’ Ass Bitch.” The band members thought it was a hoot; some of them had even tweeted to brag about what they would do. Imagine the outcry if they had done something similar to Hillary Clinton or Michelle Obama. At least Bachmann got an apology from an NBC executive. Were it up to me, heads would have rolled.

Feeling cramped in your workspace? If you sometimes feel that your office cubicle has shrunk, you’re right. A study by the International Facility Management Association says that non-management personnel have lost 15 square feet of office space since 1994. Jamming more employees into less space means lower rent and smaller utility bills. It also means knowing a lot more about your neighbors (and they know a lot more about you) than you’d probably like.

    I have a lot of difficulty with the fact that ANY christian, American having all their faculties could have voted for Barney with a clear conscious. This country has some deep problems. Like this whole administration. These folks clearly have to burned out on drugs. They are not in their right mind.

      Scout, I’ve never read any research on the topic, but I think some of the explanation concerning voter habits has much to do with how much they believe in that DAMNED ‘Big Tent’ theory’ that utopians and space cadets love.
      Their basic philosophy seems to be that once you’re a loyal member and you believe in the Big Tent’s crap, ALL members are absolutely OK, no matter what they say or do. It’s a form of pc absolution.
      They look at conservatives as though we are infidels. I still do research, and I’ve done it long enough to think that many ideas conservatives believe in are factual.
      In the utopian ‘camp,’ research is a waste of time. All you need is feelings and good intentions. They won’t admit it, but they reinforce their ‘beliefs’ with pc tactics that are taken straight out of the book of Hitler.
      By the way, where are all the Fwank jockstrappers? I’m vewy thuthspithious of their abthenth, Scout.
      A pwecious utopian hewo ith leaving under a cwowd.

    It’s interesting that both John Olver and Frank (both liberal Dems) are not running for re-election. What is more interesting is the fact that they are both members of the Progressive Caucus in MA, of which 35 MA legislators are members of, a little reported item. Back years ago WND did an expose’ on the progressive caucus and it’s affiliation with the communist party usa. Of course the regular media ignore this info and like to label anyone who offers it. Our country has been destroyed from within. These people are not representative of the country I grew up in and I consider them traitors to America. They are symptoms of a larger problem, the rot that has become so pervasive in our society.

    Chip: Since you mentioned the “gay” word, I would like to share my thoughts regarding sexual immorality. Why are straight men/women demonized in the press if they have indulged in adultry or fornication? They are asked to resign from public office and be disgraced. Herman Cain’s improprieties are between him, God and his wife. There seems to be different standards for homosexually, same sex marriage, gay pride parade. Staight or gay, it all comes under sexual immorality. So if we must accept the homosexual agenda as the norm, why not accept all sexual immorality. All sinners will one day stand before the Judge of the world.
