Racist employer: Obama won, so I fired 22

From the Elections Have Consequences Department

LAS VEGAS (CBS Las Vegas) — A Las Vegas business owner with 114 employees fired 22 workers today,  as a direct result of  Obama’s re-election. …

“I’ve done my share of educating my employees. I never tell them which way to vote. I believe in the free system we have, I believe in the right to choose who they want to be president, but I did explain as a business owner that I have always put my employees first. I always made sure that when I went without a paycheck that [I] made sure they were paid. And I explained that I always put them first and unfortunately I’m at a point where I’m being forced to have to worry about me and my family now and a business that I built from just me to 114 employees.

“I explained to them a month ago that if Obama gets in office that the regulations for Obamacare are gonna hurt our business, and I’m gonna have to make provisions to make sure I have enough money to cover the payroll taxes, the additional health care I’m gonna have to do, and I explained that to them and I said you do what you feel like in your heart you need to do, but I’m just letting you know as a warning this is things I have to think of as a business owner.   …

I had to lay off 22 people today to make sure that my business is gonna thrive and I’m gonna be around for years to come. I have to build up that nest egg now for the taxes and regulations that are coming my way. Elections do have consequences, but so do choices. A choice you make every day has consequences and you know what, I’ve always put my employees first, but unfortunately today I have to put me and my family first, and you watch what’s gonna happen. …. There’s a tsunami coming and if you didn’t think this election had consequences, just wait.”

This guy is an obvious racist millionaire who didn’t get the hope and change memo.  He should have his taxes raised and his books audited by the IRS.   /s

A Republic, if you can keep it

It’s Election Day!

Hope everyone voted.  I’ll be hanging out at Free Republic and Grouchy, while watching the returns on Fox.

Hang in there folks.

Birthday Open Thread

How bout that.  Old Nuke turns another year older on the day before Election Day 2012.

I’m sure y’all know what I want for my birthday:  a new president.  Easy enough, just get out there tomorrow and vote.

 

It wouldn’t be Nuke’s Birthday without some Def Leppard  (new and improved)

 

 

RNC fundraising effort leaves me po’d

Friday afternoon around 2:30, I received a phone call from the Republican fundraising arm of the Romney Campaign.  They have been very persistent, calling me every couple of weeks or so asking for a new donation, a matching donation, a last-minute donation, a get-out-the-vote donation, or whatever.  I gave some in 2008, and now I reckon I’m a GOP bigwig donator.  Not.

So, on Friday afternoon, when asked for one last donation to get the message out and the turnout over the hump, I told the young lady I wouldn’t be donating this time.  Her response, “Do you mind if I ask why not?”  I said, “I’m hanging up now,” and that’s  exactly what I did.

Pushy bastids.  Tuesday can’t come soon enough.

Me Too, Abigael….Me Too!

I’m sick of Bronco and Mitt, too.

From the child’s mother:

This is my four year old daughter, Abigael, after hearing one too many mentions of the election.

Sound of Thunder

A remarkable story from the campaign trail, Red Rock amphitheater, Colorado

And the governor, he lowers his head and his eyes shut tight and you could see him take a slow deep breath and then he lets it out and says quietly, but just loud enough for some to hear, “Lord, if this is your will, please help to make me worthy.  Please give me the strength Lord.”  And then his eyes open up, and he’s back to smiling and laughing and shaking hands and being the candidate once again.

 

I haven’t been a big Romney fan.  He is better than the democrat, but that is about it.  this story from Colorado is inspiring.  Please Read it All.

The White House knew, and did nothing

The Smoking Gun:

A series of internal State Department emails obtained by Fox News shows that officials reported within hours of last month’s deadly consulate attack in Libya that Al Qaeda-tied group Ansar al-Sharia had claimed responsibility.

The emails provide some of the most detailed information yet about what officials knew in the initial hours after the attack. And it again raises questions about why U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Susan Rice, apparently based on intelligence assessments, would claim five days after the attack that it was a “spontaneous” reaction to protests over an anti-Islam film.

Ansar al-Sharia has been declared by the State Department to be an Al Qaeda-affiliated group. A member of the group suspected of participating in the Sept. 11 attack in Benghazi has been arrested and is being held in Tunisia.

Joe Bidenism strikes again… “But, I always say what I mean.”

Seriously, Joe?

11/07/12: See you at the polls!

I remember Stern’s crew doing this in time for the ’08 election. Seems like the Obama supporters haven’t learned much.

To all Obama voters: be sure and get to the polls on Wednesday, November 7, 2012.

Three months to live

Writing a blog post generally begins with an idea, followed by a quick run-through, getting as much down as I can without losing the original inspiration.  After that, a quick edit or three, and finishing touches of a photo, then a title.

Today, I began with the title first.  Now I’m trying to backfill with a post.

Today is Friday, September 21, 2012.

Today, there are 46 days till Election Day.

Today, according to the Mayan calendar, we’ve got three months to live.

Today, Mississippi State is making final preparations to raise their record to 4-0 against another Sunbelt Conference opponent.

Today, if the Mayans are correct, the December 20, 2012 football polls will have Mississippi State ranked #1, and scheduled to face a Big-12 opponent, probably Oklahoma, in the BCS National Championship Game.


This is the World Famous Friday Open Thread, End of the World edition.

WFFOT:  And I feel fine.

 

 

update:  this is too good not to post

 

NFL has more integrity than Mainstream Media

Poor ol’ Brian Stropolo.  He posted pictures of himself at a New Orleans Saints pre-season tailgate party on Facebook.  ESPN found out and told on him.  Rightly so, I believe.  Especially since he was supposed to officiate a Saints game.

At least the NFL had the integrity to remove  him.  The NFL pulled him from the game to avoid the appearance of impropriety.

You probably heard about it.

Now I know that politics is nowhere near as important as professional football.  So, I guess I’m not real surprised to see this story at Fox News.

A CNN political reporter last week tweeted a link to a fundraising page for the Obama campaign — one selling tickets for as much as $5,000 for a Milwaukee, Wis., reception. 

But, still.  Seriously CNN?  You care nothing about the appearance of impropriety?
When asked, CNN didn’t even respond.

The Friday before the State-Auburn game, and other interesting stuff

In today’s racially charged political environment, if any political disagreement with the current occupant of the White House gets characterized by the drive-by’s as racism, what does this button (seen at the demo convention) mean?

 

Other than illustrating the Democrat penchant for shallow-thinking-bumper-sticker politics, does voting for someone because of their race mean the same as not voting for that person for the same reason?

 

This is the World Famous Friday Open Thread. Hubba, hubba, hubba.

WFFOT: disagreeing with the current administration since 2008.

Is it Mitt, or is it Hillary?

This is excerpted from an earlier post during the last Presidential primary season. I pulled the quotes from the excellent resource website, “On The Issues.”

See if you can identify the speaker as Mitt Romney, or Hillary Clinton:


1) “I am adamantly against illegal immigrants. People have got to stop employing illegal immigrants. you see loads of people waiting to get picked up to go do yard work & construction work & domestic work.”

2) “We have to have our citizens insured, and we’re not going to do that by tax exemptions, because the people that don’t have insurance aren’t paying taxes.”

3) “I hate the idea of in any way making it more difficult for kids, even those who are illegal aliens, to afford college.”

4) “We need to stand firm on behalf of sensible gun control legislation.”

5) “I also support an assault weapon ban.”

6) “The American people are tired of liars and people who pretend to be something they’re not.”

7) “I have never met anyone who is pro-abortion. Being pro-choice is not being pro-abortion.”

8] “We ought to be providing domestic partnership benefits for people who are in homosexual and lesbian relationships.”

_________________________________________

The answers:

(1) Hillary, (2) Mitt, (3) Mitt, (4) Hillary, (5) Mitt, (6) Hillary, (7) Hillary, (8) Hillary

So, how did you do? I live in a deep red state so my protest vote against Mitt won’t mean very much.

But for you conservatives who think Mitt is the only way to “win” the country back, take a look at Mitt’s changing stands on the issues that matter. Look closely. No one has forced Mitt to change his mind on them. Just naked opportunism. You decide if it’s worth it to you to elect someone who is the Republican version of Hillary Clinton.

I know what my answer is.

It’s Good to be Hated Again

Scott Walker prevails in Wisconsin.

In the end, there was very little doubt. The people of Wisconsin spoke loudly and clearly. In fact, the major news networks had called it before 8:30 p.m.

Deep blue Wisconsin is in play for 2012, as conservatives dealt President Obama and his union allies a staggering blow.

I suppose it sounds like I’m gloating a little bit. Yeah, well suck on it Goonions!


“And reflect that whatever misfortune may be your lot … It could only be worse in Milwaukee.”

Obama narcissism knows no limit

The 57 second excerpt of Obama’s interview on Good Morning America contains this rather breathtaking quote …

” When I think about those soldiers or airmen, marines, or sailors out there fighting on my behalf …”

(emphasis mine).

/sigh

Controlling the news cycle

Today, President Obama made a strategic shift in his re-election campaign by coming out in favor of allowing homosexuals to marry.

In an interview with ABC’s Robin Roberts, the president did his best to quell controversy begun by Vice-president Biden over the weekend. Some, in fact, are calling the Biden statement a gaffe.

Riiight.

Biden has made many gaffes in his career, in both word and deed. But folks, this wasn’t one of them. This one had a purpose: to lay the groundwork for Obama to control the talking heads. It was simply the play of the day to continue the Obama’s team effort to control the news cycle. Don’t believe it? Look for yourself, network and cable news, internet, the issue may be controversial, but so far, given the lack of a coherent response by the GOP, it’s a win for Obama.

Even the Tea Party was trotting out the, “we’re just about economic issues, we leave the social issues alone.”

Call me cynical if you like, but the response to this so-called gaffe was way too smooth, too clever, and just had the feeling of being contrived. But, as usual, it is working.

Romney can unite the GOP

I know you can’t believe the title of this post, but bear with me for a second.

I believe all Romney  has to do is this:  offer a heartfelt apology for Romneycare. Tell us that he has seen the light, and he realizes that it was wrong to impose government health insurance on the citizenry.

Will we believe him?

No.  Of course not.  Frankly, we don’t believe the bastard on any of his previous flip-flops either.  Here is the point: There is NF way I am going to vote for Romney until and unless he apologizes for Romneycare He is going to have to walk this one all the way back.

So, there you are, Gov Romney.

You want a reset button?  Like an ‘Etch-a-sketch’  toy?

Here is your solution.

Trending at Cnn, Allahpundit at Hot Air

And it makes me wonder

English: Newt Gingrich at a political conferen...

Gingrich

“Hey, can you play, Stairway to Heaven?”

And, for the first time in a long while, I didn’t automatically change the channel.

It wasn’t like I had to break out the air guitar or anything.  Besides, it was only a short drive to the polls, and as an official “undecided” voter, I needed some background music to listen to while I was making up my mind.   Santorum or Gingrich, 6 of one … half dozen of the other.  Only thing is, I’ve wanted to vote for Gingrich for President for a long time, and this is the first opportunity I’ve had.  I’ll vote for Santorum if he gets the nomination, and I don’t feel the same way about Romney.

Over the past week, I’ve received a couple of phone calls each from Santorum and Gingrich supporters, but  easily 2 dozen Romney robo-calls.  Each call was a negative info hit about Santorum or Gingrich.  I kept remembering Barbara  Bush last week whining about all of the negative campaigning, and how it is hurting her guy Mitt — but it’s always Romney doing the negative campaigning.

There’s a sign on the wall, but she wants to be sure, cause you know sometimes words have two meanings ..

I am tired of it, too.  It got to where would just hang up on the Romney calls.  The talking heads are saying he has outspent  his competition 5 to 1, but it seems a lot more than that. Romney has been all over TV.  Gingrich has been on radio.  Santorum has been on TV, but not that often.

The big question might just be turnout.  I voted around 11 AM and was #28 on the roll.  There was no crowd at all.  Only one other voter at the poll.  If the turnout is as light as my experience indicates, the best organization will be favored, and that means Romney. .

And it makes me wonder …

My prediction for Mississippi:  Romney 39, Gingrich 30, Santorum 21, Paul 9.

Update:  Just got another robo-call from the romney campaign.  If he loses, it won’t be because he didn’t leave it on the court.

GOP Primary Is Getting Interesting

With three states down, we have three different caucus/primary winners. Before I go further, Paul should drop out/suspend his campaign. That was his advice to Newt after Iowa and it is very sound advice he should follow himself.

As for the results, it was lightly reported that Santorum was officially declared the winner of Iowa late Friday. With the SC primary going to Newt, Mittens has to be feeling the painful realization that he isn’t inevitable or electable. In fact, exit polls from Fox News show that the SC voters viewed Newt much more electable than Mittens over Obama by 51% to 37%. That result alone shows the mantra of Mittens as being inevitable/electable was a false contruct designed to shape the minds of GOP voters.

Some are now saying that this is good news for the GOP going forward toward the eventual nominee. That if Mittens were to win, that he would be fully tested and prepared for all that the Chicago Thug Regime would throw at him. Of course that implies that he is capable of changing his personality completely and actually do the things needed to win as a candidate and not just trying not to lose, as he has been doing. That and relying on his shady Super PAC practices to destroy his opponent, which is his biggest asset to date.

I’ll state this now. Of the three candidates left in the race(Paul is not included) I would prefer Santorum, not because I think he is the very best candidate the GOP could come up with, but because his warts aren’t as grotesque and hideous as Mitten’s and Newt’s. Having said that, if Santorum doesn’t win and Gingrich does, I will have little trepidation in voting for him. If Mittens wins, I will not be voting for POTUS this year, just down ticket votes. I had thought I could punch his ballot as a vote against Obama, but not now. I have expressed this to several people, after seeing the below video, I didn’t think I could think less of Romney than I already did…but I was wrong.

I will admit that all three have some positive attributes, but their negatives can’t be overlooked, so I will break it down a little from my perspective.

Santorum:Positives are that he is a strong social conservative and clearly loves this country and what it has always represented.
His biggest negative is he seems entirely too comfortable with Big Government.

Gingrich:Positives are he is an intelligent and well spoken orator that will fight back against the left and have fun doing it. That fighting spirit connects with the average American, as evidenced in SC this past week. Also, he has hinted he might ask Rep. Allen West to be his VP.
Negatives:Burdensome personal relationship baggage and a great deal of evidence that he is a Progressive.

Romney:Positives are his experience in the business world.
Negatives:Too many to list. In that regard please view the following 52 minute video that was brilliantly produced and found at Ann Barnhardt’s website.

I agree with Miss Barnhardt emphatically, when it comes to Mittens…GO HOME, WILLARD!

Run Sarah Run !!

Saw this over at the Lighthouse…….

 

Sarah Palin Says “It’s Not Too Late for Folks to Jump In” the 2012 GOP Presidential Nomination Race

 

It’s really not too late. Especially since the GOP changed the primary system from winner-take-all to a proportional type of campaign. In fact, I can envision a write-in tidal wave of Palin supporters who are willing and able to propel Sarah to a Primary victory. And, given the hate-fest she has endured from the left, any nastiness from the Romney campaign will be a pesky annoyance by comparison.

Or, how about they fight it out at the GOP convention! Wouldn’t that make some great television.

C’mon Sarah! Time to bring your “A” Game!!

Why do conservatives distrust Mitt?
