Not Young, Not Black, Not Latino, Not Female...Not Important

Take a look at the picture above. It's Robert Krentz, the Arizona rancher whose murder at the hands of an illegal alien probably helped secure the passage of Arizona's tough new anti-illegal immigration law. But if Robert Krentz's murder propelled the new law into action, that's all it did.

It didn't move the oh-so-compassionate liberals to express sympathy for Krentz. It didn't prompt the Mexican government to issue an apology to Krentz's family for their suffering at the hands of a Mexican citizen. It didn't stir the lame stream media to demand the feds get in control of the border NOW! No, Robert Krentz's brutal murder didn't inspire any of the above because he was the wrong type of person. Robert Krentz didn't belong to any of the categories of people, articulated by Barack Obama, that it's fashionable for liberals to care about. Krentz was an unfashionable victim.

Take a look at the picture above. It's a picure of a human being: older, white, male, and in the mind of a frighteningly large segment of our population, expendable. That's REAL racial profiling. Why don't the liberals condemn that?

Gone, Baby, Gone! Part Deux

Everybody's heard about it.

Lance Baxter, aka DC Douglas, the voice actor for the Geico commercials, was fired by that auto insurance company after he left a hateful voice mail at FreedomWorks, a pro-Tea Party group. Apparently, Baxter/Douglas--who sounds very stereotypically gay on the voice mail--was angry at alleged anti-gay sentiment in the Tea Party movement. After FreedomWorks released Baxter's pseudo-civil tirade Geico handed the actor his walking papers. Adios muchacho!

Now I'm not sure if Baxter was fired specifically for spewing hate against FreedomWorks or for using the politically incorrect word "retarded" in his rant, but either way it's downright thrilling to see a denizen of the Left get his just desserts. I don't expect Baxter to be jobless for long. Hollywood's owned by liberals who'd love to have sweet Lance come and talk for them (or to them). So I'm sure Baxter/Douglas will be drawing a paycheck again soon. But for now Geico Dude is jobless and I, for one, couldn't be happier.

18 Seconds Of Truth

So the Tea Party is a racist movement, huh? This brief interview of Darryl Postell, a black man at a Tea Party rally, by white NBC reporter Kelly O'Donnell puts the kibosh on that liberal myth. The question that O'Donnell asks Mr. Postell exposes her liberal bias. Mr. Postell's answer is awesome. Listen and cheer!

God Bless The Tea Parties!

Well, today is tax day and I wasn't disappointed. Tea Party rallies were held all over the country just like last year, clearly demonstrating that this unjustly maligned movement is not just standing firm but gaining ground.

I didn't get to attend the local rally like I did in '09. I had to get my car fixed after I got off work. Also, the local rally wasn't held in my city but in a nearby suburb that I hardly ever visit. As I don't like to drive around unfamiliar places after dark, I probably wouldn't have gone to this year's rally even if my car hadn't been an issue. I'm thrilled, though, that millions of other Americans DID get to participate in the movement and make their voices heard.

I love the Tea Party movement. The people involved are the salt of the earth. They have, as stated above, been unjustly maligned. They have been smeared, trashed, mocked, derided, vilified, and demonized. The lame stream media has denounced them. Democratic officials have denounced them. Yet, despite all the hate and opposition the Tea Partiers have persevered, becoming the epitome of resolve, principle, and grassroots activism. They aren't burning the flag. They aren't demonizing our troops. They aren't chanting they want to kill the president, nor are they hanging anyone in effigy. They're simply using their God given right to speak out against criminal levels of fiscal irresponsibility and unconstitutional governmental expansion.

The Tea Party movement has it right. Spending is out of control and government is getting too big to be compatible with liberty. If that straight forward message is deemed hateful or racist by liberals then that only shows their intellectual bankruptcy. Tea Partiers have nothing to fear from those people. They should ignore them and keep on fighting for America to have a free and solvent future. They WILL do that, and that's why I love them and their movement.

God bless the Tea Parties!

God bless the Tea Partiers!

God bless America!

Gone, Baby, Gone!

Representative Bart Stupak has announced his retirement. The Michigan Democrat, I'm sure you remember, betrayed his pro-life views and the pro-life community in his desperation to vote for Obamacare. Stupak claimed his decision had nothing to do with anger over that betrayal. Instead, Stupak said that he's retiring because he's tired and wants to spend more time with his family. Yeah, right.

Stupak is the first in what will be a long line of post-Obamacare casualties. The American people, including those in Stupak's district, don't want the Dems' kind of health care "reform". They hate the way it was shoved down their throats by arrogant, we-know-what's-best-for-you politicians. And pro-lifers are NOT fooled by the executive order (EO) Stupak got from Obama in exchange for his vote. They know that said EO is just a fig leaf to give Stupak cover; it has no real teeth. And they are angry.

Stupak retired because he saw the writing on the wall. He wanted to avoid a humiliating defeat in November, a defeat that would be all he had to show for betraying his principles to support Obama and Obamacare. It's a bit frustrating that Stupak cheated his constiuents out of the joy of voting him out of his job. It would've been great to see his declining fortunes splashed across national tv on election night. Still, Stupak has gotten his just desserts. The voters didn't get to deliver the coup de grace but they, along with the majority of Americans, can cheerfully say of the Michigan traitor, "Gone, baby, gone!"
