Oh, the Stupidity!

February 7, 2008

Mitt RomneyI have read a lot of stupid arguments in my time, but this takes the cake, ice cream and party hats.  This has got to be a spoof:

Romney lost here for two reasons that are not mutually exclusive: class warfare and envy. People don’t like him because he is richer, smarter, better-looking and more successful than they are, and so much so, that it is impossible for him to camouflage the difference. Oh, they will make claims such as religion or flip flops, but it’s all hogwash. This is, of course, contrary to what conservatism ought to be, but it is in line with humanity as it is.

Now, that’s hogwash!  Romney couldn’t seal the deal even with conservative talk radio, pundits and The National Review behind him.  Why?  Because he was transparently phony and unlikeable.  People couldn’t believe a word he said because he’s taken both sides of so many issues.

I respect his wealth, I don’t envy it.  Conservatives believe in the free market and making money.  It was his insincerity and chameleonic shapeshifting that I, and many like me, was unable to respect.  There just wasn’t strong enough kool aid to make me abandon my conservative principles.

No sale.

In case you missed it, Mitt Romney has tuned in, turned on and dropped out.  Good riddance.

Coral Reefs Are Satanic Plots

February 4, 2008

CoralYoung Earth Science (true science) is making remarkable progress on a number of fronts. I have yet to see them attack this, however:

We have sourced the latest information avaliable on the age of the Great Barrier Reef. Stay tuned though, because we’re expecting this information to change as more research is undertaken.

These are the significant dates you should be talking about when you explain the age of the Great Barrier Reef:

  • While corals have existed on the Great Barrier Reef for as long as 25 million years, they didn’t form large reef structures like those we see today.
  • The earliest record we have of complete reef structures (like those we see today) is from 600000 years ago.
  • The current Great Barrier structure started growing on top of the old reef platform about 9000 years ago when the sea levels rose at the end of the last Ice Age.

Many of the places that support reefs today were part of the land during the last ice age, which ended about 20000 years ago.

As global temperatures increased, the ice melted and retreated to the poles and mountain tops. Sea levels rose to their present levels about 6000 years ago, creating ideal conditions for corals to develop along the tops of former low coastal hills.

The Great Barrier Reef comprises about 2900 seperate reefs off the coasts of the islands and the mainland, and barrier reefs facing the sea. The outer Reef lies along the edge of the Australian continental shelf.

Turtles and sharks are the marine ‘dinosaurs’ of the Reef. Turtles have been swimming around in its waters for 150 million years, while sharks have been around for about 400 million years _ that’s 100 times longer than humans.

Coral ReefNow I am not a qualified YEC scientist, but even I can see that these ‘coral reefs’ are about as phony as can be. James Ussher accurately _ and biblically _ calculated the following dates:

  • 4004 BC – Creation.
  • 2348 BC – The Great Flood.
  • 1921 BC – God’s call to Abraham.
  • 1491 BC – The Exodus from Egypt.
  • 1012 BC – The founding of the Temple in Jerusalem.
  • 586 BC – The destruction of Jerusalem by Babylon and the beginning of the Babylonian Captivity.
  • 4 BC – The birth of Jesus.

This all sounds right to me. But the moonbat Australian government, which calls its birds ‘boobies’, is determined to destroy the faith of billions of Christians around the world with these ‘coral reefs’. When they are presented in the MSM or by some Darwinist college professor, we can easily see through their lives, but an innocent and brainwashed park ranger is much more convincing. Just take a look at a picture of this ‘brain coral’:

Brain coral 2.jpgThe photo looks convincing at first glance. There is no possible way this photo could have been photoshopped. However, the carvings appear too precise and too simple to be made by the LORD. The LORD does not make simple designs. It is obvious that these Darwinists took a bunch of colored rocks and embed them with tiny jacks so that they could expand slowly but surely. The idea that several small organisms formed these ‘coral reefs’ is utterly ridiculous.

Fiji MermaidWhat can you, the average citizen, do to stop this elaborate hoax on par with P.T. Barnum? (Update by Psycheout: Remember the Fiji Mermaid, pictured at right?) One thing you can do is to simply swim around the reef and start bashing it to pieces in areas where the Australian government can’t see it. A far better plan, however, is to get King Brownback to petition the Australian government to demolish these phony organisms. One can only hope that the Darwinists, losing one of their main ‘trumps’ (ha!), will be demoralized and will stop persecuting true scientists like Ben Stein. Then, we can begin the slow, painful process of not only taking back America, but making sure that ‘science’ no longer can even dream of making phony theories.

Not Just a Paper Tiger

January 18, 2008

Tony the TigerIt looks like the tiger victims brought it on themselves.  They must have been similar to those libtards that embarrass our nation, shouting “no blood for oil!” or “Bush lied, tigers died!”

One of the two survivors of the San Francisco Zoo tiger attack that left a 17-year-old dead told the victim’s father that the three had yelled and waved at the animal while standing atop the railing of the tiger’s exhibit, police said in court documents filed Thursday.

When will the youth of today ever learn?  I suppose once they grow up they will become conservatives.  We can take solace in that at least.

Still not convinced that these idiots were liberals?  Check it:

Investigators seized a small amount of marijuana as well as a partially filled bottle of Grey Goose vodka from the car, according to the inventory that police submitted from the search.

They also found a kit commonly used to defeat drug testing, which included a vial of unisex synthetic urine, police said. Paul Dhaliwal was on probation stemming from a drunken driving incident that occurred before the attack.

That’s known as a leftist party kit.  What idiots.

The Hair Has Spoken

January 3, 2008

The HairMitt Romney is the Republican version of manly John Edwards, the Silky Pony. I guess he was trying to be funny, but this is about as stupid as it gets.

Mitt Romney made a tongue-in-cheek plea Thursday for Ed Rollins, the Huckabee campaign chairman who recently said that he wanted to knock Romney’s teeth out, to keep his hands off his well-quaffed hair.

Ugh.

“I saw just yesterday the chairman of Gov. Huckabee’s campaign said that he would like to knock my teeth out.”

“My only comment on that,” he added, “is don’t touch the hair.”

Pathetic. Rollins could take him.

Long-Haired Men Are the Anti-Christs

December 24, 2007

A Dirty HippieWhat with the foolish amounts of hippies that are trying to appear ‘cool’ so that you might let them fornicate with your children, we can hardly risk letting our children out of our sight these days.

What we conservatives aren’t often noticing is that hippies are just a mere subculture of the great symbol of anti-conservatism, long hair on men. Liberals love symbolism; they use it to brainwash the school boards into allowing their foolish books to poison our children’s minds.

I think that there can be no greater threat to America than this deeply rooted hairstyle. And here it says that “long hair frequently shows less sexual control”; no wonder hippies are the worst part of our society. Although much of the site is meaningless whining over why they feel hair is ‘important’, I feel they are correct on this statement.

Another Hippie

It is worth mentioning that the Bible understood the threat very well. 1 Corinthians 11:14 : Doth not even nature teach you that it is shameful for a man to have long hair? The weirdos are undoubtedly going to argue that the Nazarites could take a vow to God by not cutting their hair. True to their traditions of quote mining, however, they will not know a single thing about the story of Samson and Delilah.

As conservatives know, Delilah invoked her typical woman’s deception on Samson by tempting him into breaking his vow. Blinded by the Philistines, Samson had not lost all faith with God, so he managed to kill his captors. However, the strongest man in the world had been betrayed by his hair and his woman.

It is fitting that God now requires women to cover their heads with hair: 1 Corinthians 11:16 for her hair is given to her as a covering… It is to be a transvestite for a man to adopt woman’s dress styles, but it must be a mental disorder to adopt a woman’s shame.

Not only that, the traitorous Abasalom must have had lots of hair upon his head: 2 Samuel 14:26 : And when he polled his head… he weighed the hair of his head at two hundred shekels after the king’s weight. God clearly does not want men to have long hair.

More Hippies

But the hippies, injuns, and whatnots have been subtly planning the overthrow of Jesus, first by starting an utter lie about whether Jesus agreed with their foolish ideas or not. They have now turned the commonly marketed Jesus into a symbol of their shameful ways. The Prince of Peace was no hippy.

Any right-thinking person can see the evils in hippy society: they give little babies marijuana, they fornicate with doorknobs, they waste half their life at rock concerts, and encourage shameful Asian religions. What we are not noticing is their slow spread into other cultures.

A Hippie Infestation

The premier place for these sinners to gather is at the Long Hair Hyperboard, where these sad pathetic whelps long for the next 10 years to be ‘skipped’ just so they can have dead protein hanging down to their shoulders. Longhairs often hang out at rock concerts, Harley-Davidson fanclub bars, and environmentalist rallies.

Long hair has become a symbol of just about every sector on the left. Hopefully, we can pass a law requiring all of these men’s heads to be sheered so that no hair grows past the ears or touches the collar. Long hair is anti-American, plain and simple.

Clintonian Parsing

December 23, 2007

Bill ClintonContinuing with the theme of Mitt Romney, the candidate who will say anything, or in the case of allowing others to spread misinformation that benefits him, say nothing, here’s some maddening clips of Romney’s skilled use of Clintonian parsing.

The video runs for under two minutes, but it will stun you. This is a must see for those who still naively assume that Mitt is a fine upstanding regular guy, or for anyone that is nostalgic for the heady days of serial liar-in-chief President Bill Clinton. Roll the tape….

Whether it’s about the definition of “saw” or “lifelong hunter” or “is” or claiming endorsements he never received, Romney is nearly as slick as a Clinton. And Mitt’s fanclub is as blindly loyal to him as Clinton’s was at the height of impeachment.

Is that what we, as Republicans, really want? I certainly hope not. Leave the shysters and congenital liars to the Democrat party. We’re Republicans. We can do better.

Hat Tip: Flap’s blog.

See also: Last night, LJ over at Race 4 2008 documented some more Mittisms in Romney’s Distortions, none of which include those documented here in the last couple of days. A man could make a career out of documenting Mitt’s abuse of the truth. It just never ends!

Mitt Romney - Man Bear Pig?Upon reflection: There’s more to Mitt Romney that aggravates me than just his Clintonian aspects. He actually reminds me very much of the last two loser DemocRATs to run for President. Mittens is also part al-Gore (the serial exaggerator and “inventor” of the Internet) and John F’n Kerry (windsurfer and consummate flip-flopper’s flip-flopper).

Mitt is the worst of all worlds: he’s Clinton-Gore-Kerry all rolled up into one slimy package (Clorry – the man-bear-pig). In short, he’s a phony, lying, flip-flopping weaselly mess of a candidate. He’s spent millions of his own bankroll in an attempt to fool us all, but when you come right down to it, he’s still man-bear-pig.

Update: I’m glad someone else gets it. And that someone is AllahPundit over at Hot Air.

It’s like the Clinton camp, except less smart.

Exactly.

Say Nothing

December 23, 2007

See Nothing, Say NothingMitt Romney is the definitive Say Anything candidate, that’s for sure. First he claimed that “I saw my father march with Martin Luther King.” Then he said it was figurative, not literal, that he “saw” it — doing his best impression of Bill Clinton redefining the word “is.”

In the past, Romney has also been quoted as having bragged, “My father and I marched with Martin Luther King Jr. through the streets of Detroit.” But it also turns out to be nonsense. What should we make of this?

Mitt Romney never marched through Detroit with Martin Luther King, as the Romney campaign now acknowledges. Nor is it true that the GOP candidate “saw” his father, a former governor of Michigan, join King on a civil rights march, as he has been claiming on the presidential campaign trail. (He now says that “saw” was a “figure of speech.”) It is conceivable that George Romney marched with King at some point, but this is disputed.

Mitt Romney, LiarRomney’s tall tales and the subsequent backpedalling renewed the obvious questions about Romney’s credibility and his annoying tendency to, let’s say, stretch the truth to the breaking point. Team Mitt needed the subject changed, and quick.

Then something magical happened which Romney supporters energetically used to beat down those valid criticisms and to cleverly change the subject away from Willard Romney’s self-aggrandizing lies to the late George Romney’s admirable civil rights record.

A couple of seemingly credible witnesses were conveniently rolled out, who conveyed a warm and fuzzy story about George Romney and MLK marching arm in arm in Grosse Pointe, Michigan. It was a slick PR team’s dream come true!

Shirley Basore, 72, says she was sitting in the hairdresser’s chair in wealthy Grosse Pointe, Mich., back in 1963 when a rumpus started and she discovered that Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and her governor, George Romney, were marching for civil rights — right past the window.

Aw, it really brings a tear to one’s eye, doesn’t it? It’s almost like Mitt was there, marching proudly with the civil rights icon. What a heroic figure he must have been! And everybody lived happily ever after. The end. Poppycock!

Too bad it turns out that the fuzziness of the eyewitness account was literal as well as figurative. The tale told was apocryphal. Worse, Team Romney knew it was false at the time, but they contemptibly decided to say nothing to correct the record.

See No Evil, Hear No Evil, Speak No Evil
Team Romney: See No Evil,
Hear No Evil, Speak No Evil

How principled. How honorable. How Romney-esque!

Two women contacted the Mitt Romney campaign this week, offering their memories of seeing Romney’s father march with Martin Luther King Jr., in Grosse Point Michigan in 1963. Campaign officials were well aware that the women were mistaken. Yet, they directed those women to tell their stories to a Politico reporter.

The motives and memories of the two women are unknown and irrelevant; the motives of the campaign, however, were obvious — to spread information they knew to be untrue, for the good of the candidate.

Martin Luther King Jr. marches, without RomneyHere’s the actual facts about that alleged Romney-MLK march:

Then-governor George Romney did indeed march in Grosse Pointe, on Saturday, June 29, 1963, but Martin Luther King Jr. was not there; he was in New Brunswick, New Jersey, addressing the closing session of the annual New Jersey AFL-CIO labor institute at Rutgers University.

Need more? Yes, you do.

A King researcher editing his letters from that time has stated definitively that the two men never marched together; Michigan and Grosse Pointe historians have stated definitively that King was not at the 1963 Grosse Pointe march; Michigan civil-rights participants of the time have concurred; so have those who worked for George Romney at the time.

I know nothing!All of this evidence is important to present to the general public, but it is unnecessary for the Romney campaign — it has been clear for some time that they know perfectly well that the two men never marched together.

If this is the kind of man that Mitt Romney is, if these are the type of unprincipled charlatans that he will bring with him were he to become President, we’d all be better off if he remained in the private sector. We should not accept being lied to like this. It’s shameless and shameful. Reprehensible. Un-Presidential.

Martin Luther King, Jr.Making up lies, or at least being deliberately misleading, to associate himself with the revered slain civil rights leader, allowing misinformation to be entered into the public record for unethical personal benefit, and cynically manipulating voters through alternately saying anything and saying nothing when it suits his purpose, principles be damned… well, it’s astonishing and revolting and thoroughly unacceptable.

Mitt Romney does not deserve to become the GOP nominee for President. He’s the Republican version of Billy Jeff Clinton, a manipulative and deceptive word parser and an obfuscationist. Mitt Romney clearly doesn’t give a hang about principle and he doesn’t concern himself with the truth. He obviously only cares about himself and his unquenchable thirst for power.

Get out of my party, Mitt. You are not welcome here.

Concord MonitorUpdate: Apparently I’m not alone. The Concord Monitor in New Hampshire agrees, boldly stating the obvious: Romney should not be the next president. Read the whole thing, it’s scathing!

If you followed only his tenure as governor of Massachusetts, you might imagine Romney as a pragmatic moderate with liberal positions on numerous social issues and an ability to work well with Democrats.

If you followed only his campaign for president, you’d swear he was a red-meat conservative, pandering to the religious right, whatever the cost. Pay attention to both, and you’re left to wonder if there’s anything at all at his core.

Amen! Romney’s once strong lead in NH is whithering as McCain’s numbers experience a surge. Go Senator McCain! And as for you, Mitt, just leave. Okthxbye.

Update 2: Curt at Flopping Aces isn’t buying any Mitt malarkey either.

No way can Mitt try to stifle this story by throwing a few witnesses at it when there is so much documentary evidence to prove that he, his father, and MLK never marched together.

George RomneyGot that right. However, I’d just emphasize the point that George Romney had nothing to do with this, and would have nothing to be ashamed of other than his son, Willard, who’s trying to cash in on daddy’s record and take credit for principles he’s never had.

Mitt talks big, beyond his league. At least his father actually participated selflessly in something larger than himself. His shallow son, on the other hand, is full of nothing but himself. For Mitt, it’s all about the Mitt and nothing but the Mitt. Sadly, Willard has done a great disservice to his noble father’s memory. And that’s tragic.

Update 3: Fact Checker has revised it’s rating of the Romney-MLK lies upwards from 2 to 4 Pinocchios. Well done. This was a whale of a whopper. The fish has landed.

Here’s what one of the eyewitnesses trotted out by Team Romney had to say about his recollection:

“I was fifteen feet away from them [Romney and MLK],” said Robertson, 64, who attended Grosse Pointe high school. “You don’t forget that kind of thing.”

When I told Robertson that news reports placed Martin Luther King in New Jersey at the time, he replied: “Well, it was somebody who certainly looked like him.”

Uh huh.  Perfect.

Ron Paul and Don Black Photo-Op

December 21, 2007

A picture is worth a thousand words.  Smile, Ron!

Ron Paul and Don Black

So what if Stormfront founder Don Black donated to the Ron Paul campaign and Paul cheerfully accepted?  So what if Ron Paul posed for a picture with Don Black, the man behind Stormfront, a notorious neo-Nazi “white power” website?  So what if Stormfront is 100% behind Ron Paul because they find common cause with the Presidential candidate?  So what if Ron Paul doesn’t stand a ghost of a chance at the nomination?

I expect to find more “so whats” in the comment thread.  Or perhaps crickets.  Crickets chirping speaks volumes too.

Say Anything

December 20, 2007

Ask Mitt NothingMitt Romney has sunk to a new low. Hard to believe, I know. But he’s been touting the “fact” that his daddy marched with Martin Luther King, Jr., a claim which people have so far been unable to verify. Here’s the claim:

In a major speech on faith and politics earlier this month in Texas, Mitt Romney said: “I saw my father march with Martin Luther King.”

He made a similar statement Sunday during an appearance on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” He said, “You can see what I believed and what my family believed by looking at our lives. My dad marched with Martin Luther King. My mom was a tireless crusader for civil rights.”

Now that this claim is being questioned, watch the campaign backpedal.

“He was speaking figuratively, not literally,” Eric Fehrnstrom, spokesman for the Romney campaign, said of the candidate.

I literally facepalmed when I read that. Mittens is the definitive “Say Anything” to get elected candidate. Enjoy your figurative Presidency, you liar. Do the right thing: just say no to this unprincipled lying charlatan. Yuck.

Update: Over at Race 4 2008, Axel G. makes a great point:

This is a problem for a few reasons. First, Romney is caught either lying or spinning and that reinforces the impression that he will say anything. He is sounding more and more like not just flip-flopper John Kerry, but serial fabricator Al Gore. Second, obviously civil rights is a sacred topic for some and to use a slain civil rights leader to boost your campaign will be seen as offensive. Third, Romney was using this false anecdote to refute any idea that he and LDS are bigoted. His father was indeed a proponent of civil rights, but this tarnishes that image.

Update 2: Is imitation flattery? I dunno, but John Cole wrote on this subject a day after B4C and titled it Say Anything, Starring Multiple Choice Mitt. I guess he really does read Blogs 4 Conservatives.

When I was a kid, I saw my dad quarterback the Steelers as they became World Series Champions.

LOL!

Move Over Turtle Wax, Here Comes the Turtle Car!

December 5, 2007

Turtle CarMichael D. is the greatest thing to happen to Balloon Juice since Terri Shiavo! Who can forget his greatest hits like I’ve got a new TV or how do I get my router to work? Wow, some great stuff there! It brings a tear to my eye. Memories, in the corner of my mind….

But today he’s really got the hot scoop. And I mean H-O-T-T!!! Get this: a car that can go 35 miles at a whopping 25 mph! WOW! Move over Ferrari, well, into the fast lane to get around this monstrosity. Here comes the turtle car!

Moron.

As Homer would say, “This car isn’t slow, that turtle is fast.” That’s Mike D. in a nutshell. Or should I say, “turtle shell?” Nah, not really. He’s a nut.
