Newsweek shows just how warped they are……

Posted by iusbvision on May 9, 2009

When people take ideology to beyond nuttiness to the point of psychosis THIS is the kind of nonsense that you see from them. The “journalists” at Newsweek are so far to the left that they look at a piece like this and think it is right down the center.

This is also more proof that journalists mostly write to amuse each other. They say directly that this is how they see these characters. Tell me this is good for objective reporting.

They have George Bush as Darth Vader. Bush liberated 50 million people and freed women from the lash of the Taliban and lowered taxes giving people more freedom.

They have Barack Obama as Mr. Spock. Obama has signed legislation that undermines internal ethics processes and transparency (1, 2, 3, 4, 5,) and has signed legislation that KILLED a program that saved thousands of dollars in Washington DC schools while at the same time taking 1700 inner city black children out of those failing schools and got them in top performing schools. Obama and the Democrats knowingly and willingly hurt those children in order to secure their happy campaign contributors in the teachers union leadership (1, 2). Obama is using a crisis to expand government power, nationalize banks, hand over car companies to the unions that gave him huge money. The Obama administration has also asked Congress for the power to take over contracts and business that are not affiliated with TARP. Obama is still offering no serious housing and mortgage reform letting the people suffer, all while running a yearly deficit 9 times higher than Bush’s in 2007. Surely all this means less freedom for everyone, so could someone explain why Obama isn’t the emperor? 

Not enough for you??? Michael Barone of US News & World Report has this:

Welcome to the Gangster Presidency

The White House denied that it strong-armed Perella Weinberg. The firm issued a statement saying it decided to accept the settlement, but it pointedly did not deny that it had been threatened by the White House. Which is to say, the threat worked.

The same goes for big banks that have received billions in government TARP money. Many of them want to give back the money, but the government won’t let them. They also voted to accept the Chrysler settlement. Nice little bank ya got there, wouldn’t want anything to happen to it.

Left-wing bloggers have been saying that the White House’s denial of making threats should be taken at face value and that Lauria’s statement is not evidence to the contrary. But that’s ridiculous. Lauria is a reputable lawyer and a contributor to Democratic candidates. He has no motive to lie. The White House does.

Think carefully about what’s happening here. The White House, presumably car czar Steven Rattner and deputy Ron Bloom, is seeking to transfer the property of one group of people to another group that is politically favored.

In the process it is setting aside basic property rights in favor of rewarding the United Auto Workers for the support the union has given the Democratic Party.

Brother and Sister Lovers File Suit in Germany to Repeal Incest Laws

Posted by iusbvision on May 9, 2009

Nope, no slippery slope here huh marriage revisionists?

BBC News:

“Many people see it as a crime, but we’ve done nothing wrong,” said Patrick, an unemployed locksmith.

 

Ahh yes I can see the arguments now …

“While it is true that the incest law applies only to conduct, the conduct targeted by this law is conduct that is closely correlated with being in love with the person of your choice. Under such circumstances, the incest law is targeted at more than conduct. It is instead directed toward people who love family members persons as a class.”

or

I have news for you. Loving your family is not a mere “behavior”. It is a core component of a person’s identity – something that anyone who loves their family will tell you without hesitation and without equivocation.

or

I have news for you. Being a pedophile is not a mere “behavior”. It is a core component of a person’s identity – something that any pediphile will tell you without hesitation and without equivocation.

or

I have news for you. Being a polygamist is not a mere “behavior”. It is a core component of a person’s identity – something that any polygamist will tell you without hesitation and without equivocation.

or

I have news for you. Being a nudist is not a mere “behavior”. It is a core component of a person’s identity – something that any nudist will tell you without hesitation and without equivocation.

or

I have news for you. Being a Satanist is not a mere “behavior”. The animal sacrifice rituals required to be a functioning Satanist is a core component of a Satanist’s identity – something that any Satanist will tell you without hesitation and without equivocation.

By the way, the top quote is taken directly from the reasoning for Lawrence v. Texas that struck down the Texas anti-sodomy law. Just take out family and incest and throw in sodomy for the quote. The “not a mere behavior” quote is a from a homosexual marriage activist made on this very blog. Those activists will tell you that they have no intention to create a slippery slope while fully intending to create one.

539,000 Jobs Lost in March, Government Hires 66,000, Unemployment at 25 Year High, Media Spins Positive

Posted by iusbvision on May 9, 2009

Wow the media sure changes its tone when a Democrat is in power. When Busdh enjoyed higher government revenues and lower unemployment than under Clinton, they called it the “jobless recovery” than theys said it was all “burger flipper jobs” than they gave up when the evidence was overwhelming that the economy under Bush from 2003 to 2008 was booming and deficits were dropping. Deficits were dropping for the fourth year in a row before the bailoit fever hit Washington. The FY 2007 budget had a yearly budget deficit of about $200 Billion; Obama’s proposed budget for this year alone adds $1.85 Trillion in new deficits to this years budget (thats nine times higher folks) and adds a trillion dollars a year to it.   

So this is how the AP spun the news of the highest unemployment in 25 years “Evidence piling up that worst of recession is over ” simply amazing. Government hired 66,000 people in March and they are hiring for the Census (LINK).
