It Wasn’t Futile!

Posted in 2010 Election, Politics, Society on November 7th, 2010

Remember how, back in 2008, the domestic enemies of America declaimed that our nation had lurched to the Left like some sort of shambling, drug addicted, derelict? Remember how they crowed that the installation of Barack Obama as POTUS proved that resistance to the Leftists’ agenda was futile?

Barackus of Borgistan Was Wrong; Resistance Was Not Futile

They and their Messiah, President Obama, were very, very wrong. Resistance was not futile; America has not lurched to the Left and remains a proud and sovereign nation. The results of the 2010 Elections, which turned the nations electoral map red at local, state and federal levels, proved that to any and rational minds without a shadow of doubt.

To quote Obama, himself:

Being an American is not a matter of blood or birth, its a matter of faith.

To the followers of Obama and his anti-American agenda I say, amend your faith and assimilate, as all foreigners within our borders must, into the Body of America or be treated as any other cancer or foreign infection must always always be treated.

Olbermann’s Out

Posted in 2010 Election, Ethics & Morality, Society on November 6th, 2010

Keith Olbermann - Liberal Pundit, Media Personality, and Anti-American Traitor worthy of a slow death, preferably by being gut-shotAs most Americans know and Liberals bemoan, Keith Olbermann was suspended without pay indefinitely by NBC on November 5, 2010 for violating NBC News ethics policies. Specifically, he was removed for contributing to the election campaigns of three Democratic candidates this election season.

Silencing Olbermann is a great thing for America but I’m not sure this was the way to do it.

The stated reason for NBC’s suspension of the hyper-Liberal Olbermann was that he directly and willfully violated NBC’s Newsroom Policy when he made those donations with the one to Raul Grijalva being made immediately on the same day that Olbermann hosted Grijalva on his show:

Anyone working for NBC News who takes part in civic or other outside activities may find that these activities jeopardize his or her standing as an impartial journalist because they may create the appearance of a conflict of interest. Such activities may include participation in or contributions to political campaigns or groups that espouse controversial positions. You should report any such potential conflicts in advance to, and obtain prior approval of, the President of NBC News or his designee.

There is no doubt that Keith Olbermann violated NBC’s policy which is based upon the journalistic ethics code called – ironically given the foul and perfidious degeneration of the NY Times – the code of the Grey Lady.

Where doubt, both ethical and logical, arises is in whether or not such standards and policies should be applied to Olbermann.

The ethical question arises from NBC’s policies themselves. Legal or not, is it right to require as terms of continued employment that employees refrain from full participation in the civic process? These employees are private citizens, and there’s an ethical issue with any employment requirement that impinges upon their freedoms of speech and association.

The logical problem is nothing more than a result of a logical fallacy based upon an utterly false and well-disproven postulate, that Keith Olbermann is a journalist or even an employee of a news agency. MSNBC is not a news agency by a creditable definition of the term and Keith Olbermann doesn’t even attempt to bear any resemblance to journalist. Applying the code of the Grey Lady to him is patently ridiculous.

So, for what little it’s worth in the grand scheme of things, I’m ambivalent about Olbermann suspension. I’m ecstatic that he’s been, at least temporarily, stopped from further polluting the airwaves with his filth, but I’m not fond of why he was removed.

On Nov 2 Money Talked

Posted in 2010 Election on November 5th, 2010

The Gadsen Flag - Don't Tread On MeIn the recent 2010 Congressional Mid-term Elections, as in almost all elections in America, money talked. This time, however, Americans weren’t listening or, if they were, they certainly repudiated what they heard.

Despite the majority of Dems outspending their GOP rivals they still lost because, contrary to the Liberals’ incessant whining, America is not for sale.

From the Washington Post:

In two-thirds of the House seats that Republicans picked up Tuesday, Democratic candidates had more money behind them, according to a Washington Post analysis of data from the Federal Election Commission. Overall, Democratic candidates in the 63 races that flipped to the GOP had $206.4 million behind them, a tally that includes candidate fundraising and spending by parties and interests. That compares with only $171.7 million for their GOP rivals.

The pattern appears to contradict widespread complaints from Democrats that they were being unfairly overrun by wealthy Republicans, many of whom donated money to conservative groups to spend on political races unencumbered by the limits and public-disclosure requirements that constrain most political fundraising. The data show that even in many races in which Republicans had more outside help, they still had fewer resources than their Democratic opponents.

So much for President Obama’s baseless accusations and mendacious, jabbering attacks against the US Chambers of Commerce and any corporations that his handlers could think of for him to assault and slander.
