Kermit Gives Up Bacon

Posted in Humor, Society on July 28th, 2012

Times change and the chaotic winds of political correctness blow oddly, especially in children television. Such was certainly the case in Sesame Street.

What with the iconic Cookie Monster being put in Cookie Rehab, it was only a matter of time before they had Kermit the Frog give up bacon – much to Miss Piggy’s disgruntlement I’m sure. 😉

Oh Yeah…Take It, You Terribilis Slut!

This has, of course, led to some awkward behind the scenes moments and the banning of the Nature Channel, Animal Planet, and the National Geographic Channel from the set. Although it’s rumored that the producers are working with Peewee Herman to develop a segment called “It’s OK To Touch Yourself”, so the ban may be lifted soon.

NOTE: For the vast percentage of readers who didn’t get the pun in the image’s caption, the frogs displayed appear to be Phyllobates terribilis aka Golden Poison Dart Frogs from Columbia.

That’s Exactly Right!

Posted in 2012 Election on July 27th, 2012

It’s quite rare that can read or hear anything that this trumped-up, little, bastard by-blow of 1960’s rebellion, Obama says and say, “That’s exactly right!” It does happen upon rare occasions though.

That’s exactly right. And and, you know, a year from now I think people are going to see that we’re starting to make some progress. But there’s still going to be some pain out there. If I don’t have this done in three years, then there’s going to be a one-term proposition.

— President Obama
February 02, 2009, The Today Show

Well, it’s been over three years and, if improving the American economy was what he was supposedly going to “get done,” he’s made no progress. Indeed, he’s made matters far worse – far worse even then his Liberal cronies in Congress have managed to do – with his incessantly repeated class-warfare and anti-business sentiments.

Boy! You’ve got nascent but still huge and stinking economic catastrophe on your hands. You did built that! Nobody else made that happen.

Even more than ObamaCare’s overwhelming costs to businesses – costs all centered upon adding or maintaining employees, it is the climate of fear that Obama has instill in businesses that is keeping American unemployment numbers grievously high. Every time Obama attacks businesses, threatens to bypass Congress to do things via Executive Orders, or voices support for the rabble of OWS, he increases this climate of fear and causes corporations to tighten their purses in order to hopefully weather the storm that they fear Obama will bring.

So yes, Obama is exactly right and there must be a one-term proposition, no matter what that takes, if America is going to recover in our lifetime or, possibly, ever.

Someone Else…

Posted in 2012 Election, Politics, Society on July 27th, 2012

The jabbering, hate-mongering filth of the “Black Community” love to rant against America and Americans, screaming and hooting that they’re owed something and that all their problems are due to racism.

Well, it’s time to shine the light of uncomfortable truth upon these vermin and watch them scurry for cover.


Your Back Look Like This, Boy?

To borrow from- and paraphrase the now infamous words of their boy, Obama, The First Black President, based solely upon your race:

  • Are you a slave, thought of as no better than livestock or a tool?
  • Is your back striped from the lash?
  • Can I, a White Man, buy and sell you, your woman, or the children she claims are yours?
  • Does the law effectively state that nothing done against you by a White is to be considered a crime?
  • Are you disallowed from having an education?
  • Are you prevented from having sex with and marrying whoever you choose?
  • Are you told where you can or can’t live?
  • Are there restriction on your ability to travel freely when and where you choose?
  • Are you barred from having a paying job or told what jobs are acceptable for you to hold?
  • Is it illegal for you own property or enter into a legal contract with someone?
  • Are you barred from voting?
  • Are you forcibly kept out of businesses?
  • Are you prevented from holding public office?
  • Are you told what public facilities, such was water fountains, parks, pools, and buses, you can use?
  • Are you forbidden from taking someone like me to task for, as I did above, calling you, “Boy?”

If you’re Black, were born in America, and the answers to the above questions are “No” – and they are – you didn’t build that or do anything to cause it to be the case, nor did your ancestors. Some else made that happen and that someone was White.

NOTE: On the specific issue of slavery, that the Blacks didn’t deserve or earn their freedom is somewhat irrelevant. Basic liberty in an inherent right and such rights do not need to be earned.

Learn to deal with that fact, harsh and uncomfortable as it is, or to shut up. Either choice is acceptable to America. Continuing on as you have been isn’t and America’s tolerance for you is wearing very, very thin.
