The BEST column of the year!

by @ 21:14. Filed under Uncategorized.

I am not exaggerating. If anyone should disagree, please show me a better one.

Mike Banzet is not a quitter, though he says he quit.  After 22 years of active duty, Banzet retired this year as a

major in the U.S. Air Force. The reason? Major Banzet was extremely displeased with the political leadership in America, i.e., the Democrats. Remember, this is a political party whose leadership despises the military.

Two days before the November mid-term elections, Major Banzet wrote a pointed letter to America’s electorate that appeared in the Daily Inter Lake. Here are excerpts:

“You’ve elected officials who, for partisan points, spoke openly that the ‘…war is lost.’ I happened to be in a dining facility in Baghdad that day, filled with the (mostly) young faces of (mostly) Army men and women. CNN was on the TVs, and things got very quiet when this elected official continued on, railing that the mission that some of these very people were here to do, had ‘…failed.’ Yet, they would be donning their body armor, strapping on med kits and weapons, mounting HMMVs or MRAPs and heading outside the wire, ensuring that the newborn democracy in Iraq, purchased with so many lives, would be safe another night. The newly re-invigorated insurgents would be waiting, teeth bared back in a hateful smile, gripping the IED detonator, the RPG launcher, or the AK-47s to ply their trade with new energy, because the Senate Majority Leader had said they were winning.

You elected officials who continually defame and berate military members, whether it is the observation that if you’re not too bright, you’ll get ‘…stuck in Iraq.’

You’ve elected officials in the role of commander-in-chief who ‘loathe’ the military, while using ROTC deferments and special treatment to avoid military service that the less ‘connected’ take as a responsibility.

On the basis of ‘change,’ you elected someone who had close, ongoing associations with people who were part of an organization that tried to kill us [U.S. military] on our own soil.

You elected officials that promised to take property from some Americans, and give it to you, merely because they had more than you did.

You elect officials who openly embrace illegal activity; but they don’t have to live with the consequences.

You support an administration that leads a party that gives a standing ovation to the leader of a country that exploits our kindness and actively encourages law-breaking in our country while insulting our fellow citizens who dare to try to enforce the law.

You elect officials who are openly racist, decrying that ‘White folks’ greed drives a world in need…’ and that their own grandmother was a ‘…typical white person.’ Someone who sits in admiration as their pastor (small p; no capital letters for racists), in a church he attended for 20 years, slanders the United States  as the ‘…U.S. of KKK America’ and delights that the 9/11 ‘…chickens have come home to roost.’

You support the tactic of using the epithet of ‘racist’ as the cudgel of choice for racists who don’t like policies that conservatives advocate.

Don’t like illegal activity? Racist.

Your party insists that to provide a photo ID — proving you are who you say you are — is not only too much of a burden to ask a voter to bear, but it’s racist as well.

Don’t like a particular female’s policies? Sexist.

Yet, you support politicians who prey on 20-year old interns, seduce underage male interns, and, as a double bonus, support a person for the Supreme Court who says she is ‘wiser’ than white people because of her race and sex.”

Outstanding stuff, a must-read.

Here are, in my view, interesting, noteworthy columns and articles from the past week that I highly recommend (You will note that on occasion, I do not endorse the opinions of the author and may point that out. Despite my disagreements, I still feel the piece is worth a read).

Take your olive branch and shove it, Democrats!

“Here is an ironclad certainty: It’s too little too late for the antagonist-in-chief to paper over two years of relentless Democratic incivility and hate toward his domestic ‘enemies.’ Voters have spoken: They’ve had enough. Enough of the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize winner’s rhetorical abuse. Enough of his feints at bipartisanship. Whatever the final tally, this week’s turnover in Congress is a GOP mandate for legislative pugilism, not peace. Voters have had enough of big government meddlers ‘getting things done.’ They are sending fresh blood to the nation’s Capitol to get things undone.”

Solutions for America

“The voters decided to send to Congress men and women pledged to act upon the principles of free enterprise, limited government, individual freedom, traditional American values and a strong national defense. Heritage has compiled this checklist of five overriding actions, representing the bare minimum required for Washington to fulfill its electoral mandate….”

Top 10 Democrats we’re happy to see defeated

“Here are the Top 10 of these big-spending Democrats that we were happy to see take a beating from the American voters on Election Day.”

What’s so great about America

“Marco Rubio will have to write a new speech sooner or later, but he shouldn’t hurry up on our account. We still enjoy the one he’s been giving all year. He delivered it again to a national television audience on Election Night, after walloping not one but two formidable opponents in his campaign for a vacant Florida Senate seat. Along with his gift for wooing voters, the speech has made Rubio, according to a chorus of news accounts, a ‘rising star’—even, said one Vanity Fair writer who should know, a ‘matinee idol.’ Republicans might want to ponder why.The theme of the speech, and the source of its power, is……”

The next two years

A congressional majority will mostly be limited to playing defense, to checking any further ill-considered legislative efforts to expand the size and scope of government, as well as presenting to the American people a strong and coherent alternative to the big government liberalism of the Democrats.”

Why Palin petrifies progressives
“According to the Progressives, women cannot be ‘real women’ if they don’t fit the Progressives’ script. Yep, if a woman doesn’t march to the Left’s horse dung definition regarding what ‘they’ (whoever the heck ‘they’ are) have determined constitutes a real woman, she is illegitimate.  

For instance, for the shemales at NOW and their misandrist ilk, a woman is not a woman, in their estimation:

– If she’s not cool with killing unborn babies

– If she’s not into hating men who act like masculine men

– If she’s not into being a mannish lesbian

– If she’s not into blaming every global ill on Old Glory

– And if she’s not into worshipping big government

Yep, ladies, you’re not a ‘real woman’ if you do not agree with their garish political description of what it ‘really means’ to own a uterus.”

Politico’s Michael Kinsley goes full unhinged

“Mikey is looking for a little attention, just wanting to make a splash. Perhaps he really believes this filth of an opinion piece. Regardless, this has to be one of the most disgusting things I have read from a major news outlet in quite some time, even with Eugene Robinson still being employed by the Washington Post and the loonies at the NY Times: U.S. is not greatest country ever…” 

Tracking your federal tax dollars

“Where do your federal tax dollars go?

“Many people don’t know. A recent Kaiser Family Foundation survey found that 40% thought foreign aid was one of the two largest federal-budget expenses. In reality, Uncle Sam spends $14 on Medicare—itself the second-largest expense—for every dollar spent on foreign aid.”

Lobbyist HO Train derailed

by @ 15:56. Filed under Choo-choos, Politics - Wisconsin.

The Wisconsin State Journal carried an Associated Press dispatch saying that, a week after committing Wisconsin to spend all $810 million of Porkulus money to create a train to make lobbyists think they’re living in southern Maryla…er, link Milwaukee and Madison by car-speed passenger rail, Jim Doyle has cried, “UNCLE!”

From the relevant part of the press release/rant (courtesy Vicki McKenna on her Facebook page, who broke out the U-word):

While I could force the issue, I believe that this project will only be successful in the long run if the State of Wisconsin and the U.S. Department of Transportation are strong partners. For that reason, I have put the project on pause, so that the U.S. DOT and the Governor-elect can confer about the future of the high speed rail project. If Governor-elect Walker opposes the project, U.S. DOT has made it clear that the money will go to one of the many other states that intend to move forward with high speed passenger rail.

Ding-dong, car-speed rail’s dead.
