Hucklebuck Speaks

Mike Huckabee says:
The greatest threat to classic Republicanism is not liberalism; it's this new brand of libertarianism, which is social liberalism and economic conservatism, but it's a heartless, callous, soulless type of economic conservatism because it says "look, we want to cut taxes and eliminate government. If it means that elderly people don't get their Medicare drugs, so be it. If it means little kids go without education and healthcare, so be it." Well, that might be a quote pure economic conservative message, but it's not an American message. It doesn't fly. People aren't going to buy that, because that's not the way we are as a people. That's not historic Republicanism. Historic Republicanism does not hate government; it's just there to be as little of it as there can be. But they also recognize that government has to be paid for.
You and your fellow hacks abandoned us with your distorted view of conservatism Mike, we didn't abandon you. Since you and your fellow cronies follow what you falsely describe as "classic Republicanism," and since you and your buddies continue to misrepresent what Libertarians stand for, we are going to teach you a lesson in November when we vote for Barr or Obama.

And Hussein Obama will win a landslide victory-35 states and 58% popular vote is my guess. The Republicans will likely loose more House and Senate seats as well, which will give us the most leftist government in the history of our country. And you won't care, really. McCain won't care, Hillary won't care, none of the political elites will... probably the people wont care, either. They are mostly concerned with making a living and watching American Idol.

To the politically astute in the 21st century, Republicans and Democrats represent two factions of the same stagnant oligarchy, whose sole objective is convincing the American public that there is an appreciable difference between the two, while they profit from the political conflict and bask in the power of office. And we fall for it, every year.

Life is still good in America though-real good- still better than just about anywhere else. And as long as it is, maybe I don't care either.

Liz Trotta Jokes About Obama Being Assassinated

I know what she meant, but there is no excuse for this, and Fox News should sever their relationship with her.



Yes, the left openly pines for the death of George Bush and dances on the grave of any conservative or Republican that dies, but Fox is purportedly a professional news organization, and even though this was commentary, comments like these are unacceptable and have no place on an American news channel.

Buford T. Justice's Son Arrests Storm Chaser



Posted on Extreme Instability.

Apparently, an over-zealous, terrified Texas tough onion Sheriff's deputy arrested a storm chaser at a rest stop for "obstructing highway or other passageway."
Brian runs a tour group and was stopped in a public rest stop watching a storm. A cop asks him to leave, Brian refuses since he has a right to be there watching the storm, and he gets arrested! He was arrested for "obstructing highway or other passageway,"....which witnesses report that he was not. It seems pretty odd to me if that's what he was arrested for, why is that Sherrif's comments about everything BUT details on how he was obstructing something. The article makes it sound like the cop thought he was in danger from the storm and that's why he asked him to leave. Then it mentions a bunch of crap about spotting and reporting to their whatever. As if that gives you more right to watch a storm....it doesn't. Why are all these things brought up in there, and nothing explaining how he was obstructing a highway or other passageway(in a rest stop!....wasn't even parked on a shoulder)? IMO a cop can suggest you leave an area over a storm, but not arrest you for not doing so. Last I checked, a chaser that chases storms frequently has a better handle on storm behavior than your average cop. If a storm is truly threatening your location, a cop will not have time to arrest you. I mean really. How would you feel if you are watching a storm you know isn't threatening you, and you are told to leave a public place...then arrested when you stand up for yourself? What a joke. Reminds me of the whole seatbelt law, something else really stupid(even though I always wear mine when on the highway). You should be free to hurt just yourself if you so desire! Here's a funny one on that. You can ride a motorcycle without a helmet in states like SD or IA, but you still have to wear a seatbelt in a car! How dumb is that? Pretty damn dumb.

Arrested for essentially not leaving an area where funnels were seen earlier....brother.

Code Pink Now Using Witchcraft To Protest Iraq War

You can't make this stuff up.
The women's anti-war group has told ralliers to come equipped with spells and pointy hats Friday for "Witches, clowns and sirens day," the last of the group's weeklong homage to Mother's Day.

"Women are coming to cast spells and do rituals and to impart wisdom to figure out how we're going to end war," Zanne Sam Joi of Bay Area Code Pink told FOXNews.com.

The group's week of themed protests, which included days to galvanize grannies and bring-your-daughter-to-protest, appears to have done little to boost its flagging numbers.
I'm a bit prejudiced against witches.

30 Years Of Man's Life Disappear In Mysterious 'Kansas Rectangle'

Yeah, outside of KC Kansas is pretty desolate. From The Onion:
Experts estimate that several million tons of consumer goods disappear into the region per year. Yet, almost nothing, save for the odd Sunday morning church broadcast, is ever detected coming back out.

Still, some travelers have returned to tell their tales. The most frequent occurrence reported by those who have survived the Kansas Rectangle is extreme disorientation and an unsettling perception of time distortion.

Boulder, CO resident Ned Frome entered the Rectangle in 2005 while en route to visiting family in St. Louis.

"I had been driving for hours, but it was as though I hadn't moved at all," Frome said. "I had no idea which direction I was going in. No matter where I looked, everything was exactly the same and before long, normal navigation was almost impossible."

"I'll never go in there again," Frome added with a shudder. "I felt like I was going insane."

Yet Another Encounter with the Global Warming™ Guy at Work

Last week, I posted a story about how a Global Warming zealot argued with me because I did not believe in Global Warming as he did.

Today, I was again outside smoking with my boss, when he came over and butted in on our conversation about the Democrat primaries today, and offered this:

“Hey Tommy, I know you don’t believe in Global Warming, but what do you think about that hurricane killing all those people in Asia?”

“A tragedy to be sure. I hope it isn’t as bad as they’re reporting,” I said.

His eyes were like lasers burning into me and he said, with a slight smirk, “So even after this, you still don’t believe in Global Warming?”

I’m a little pissed now. “Even after what? That the Northern Indian Ocean had a ‘hurricane?’ They don’t call them ‘hurricanes’ there, for your information, and May is one the two peaks in their tropical cyclone season which lasts all year, unlike in America, where the season only lasts six months, ”

“Yeah but it was like twenty times worse than Katrina,” he said with a dumbfounded look on his face.

“As far as death-toll, yeah it was far worse, but as far as strength and size at the time of landfall, it was very similar to Hurricane Dennis in 2005. Yet that storm killed less than 50 people. Why do you think that is?”

“Well because the ice caps melted and raised the sea level,” He said. (This isn’t a joke, he actually said that.)

“Yeah, by like one inch in the last hundred years. The storm surge was at least fifteen feet, and wiped out a bunch of over-populated bamboo shanty-towns five feet above sea level in a third-world coastal flood plain with no warning- because there is no modern communications there.”

“It’s just weird that we are seeing so many hurricanes killing people now,” he protested.

“Well, did Global Warming cause the 1970 Bhola Cyclone or the Haiphong Typhoon in the 19th century, which each killed more people in one country than the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami world wide? Do you even know what the name of yesterday’s storm was?”

“Hey I’m not trying to start a fight; I’m just saying that storms are killing more people now that the Earth is warming.”

My boss stood up at this point and all but dragged me away.

Huffington Post Reporter Behind "Cunt" Question at McCain Town Hall Meeting

This is one hell of a scoop by Gateway Pundit. No wonder the MSM fears bloggers.

The video:



Marty Parrish is a Huffington Post contributor.

How do we know?
...Because, that's how he registered when he arrived at the event yesterday.

(pic)

If you look at the list you can see that there are two Huffington Post reporters listed- Marty Parrish (the questioner) and Keith Dinsmore.
Guess who was filming Parrish?

Marty Parrish, an Obama supporter, signed in at the press check in as a Huffington Post reporter.

Bu$hitlerchaneyroveburton Strikes Back!

Moonbats are frothing at the mouth and the left wing blogs and "news" sites abound with conspiracy theories about the "D.C. Madam's" "suicide" (nice work, Karl!)

**Warning** Clicking on these links my permanently lower your IQ.

It doesn't help that she had been a guest on Alex Jones' radio show on several occasions, saying that she expected to be "suicided" by Dick Chaney.

Over on the Huffington Post, they had to closed the comments. for "some" reason.

The "Smirking Chimp" almost gets there, but pulls back and leaves it at "fishy."

Kos broke out the Kool-Aid early. I really enjoyed this comment:
I would say that it's at least a 30% chance (2+ / 0-) that foul play was involved here.

Reminds me of the story about some woman in TX who was allegedly murdered (but was officially treated by police as a suicide) to protect Dubya from a bisexual sex scandal.
The San Francisco Chronicle comments are about what you would expect. The most reasonable comment was left by somebody who had the audacity to suggest that you can't rule out suicide 100%:
I don't think you can rule out suicide 100 percent. To face 55 years behind bars just for managing a business ... wow, I'd sure be thinking about reaching for the herbicide if I was her. Poor woman. Maybe now there will be peace.
One of the more reasonable conspiracy threads was on Reddit. No, really:
Who else thinks the DC Madam was murdered because of what she knew?

Fox News has more on the conspiracy angle.

Dr. Jerry Vlasak: Murder of Animal Researchers is "Morally Acceptable"

At the "Confronting Animal Cruelty" conference in the Salt Lake City Library, 2NEWS Brian Mullahy got a chance to speak with Dr. Vlasak about the measures that activists should take.

Mullahy: Is murder on the table as an option?

Vlasak: Whatever it takes to stop someone from abusing animals is certainly morally acceptable.

Vlasak also said:

"Nothing is more violent and radical than what's being done to non-human animals in our society," said Vlasak. "If a researcher won't stop abusing animals and is stopped physically, whether with the use of force, or is killed, I certainly wouldn't lose sleep over that idea."
