Oh The Hypocrisy!

By D. E. Carson, published on Sep 14, 2008

 

It is no secret that CNN has joined the rank and file of ABC, CBS and NBC in the tank for liberals when it comes to political news.  But every once in a while, a gem of a story comes out and it just has to be addressed.  It doesn’t happen very often what with veteran anchor Wolf Blitzer almost as transparently liberal as Dan Rather, but it does happen.

Today on CNN’s Late Edition, Wolf Blitzer was speaking with Obama Campaign Adviser Linda Douglass and McCain Economic Adviser Nancy Pfotenhauer about the economic plans of both campaigns.  As usual these two women were engaged... (more)

Remembering 9/11

By D. E. Carson, published on Sep 12, 2008

Like every American, I remember the morning like it was yesterday. My family and I had been in our new house a scant three weeks. The phone rang and since we hadn’t set one up in the master bedroom I had to walk downstairs. The voice on the other end of the line was my mother’s saying that the Libyans had attacked the World Trade Center. By the time I turned on my TV, it had been three hours real time since the attack happened. I got off the phone with my mother and sat and watched what I knew was an event deeply rooted in hate and evil against the United States.

Oh Grow Up Already!

By D. E. Carson, published on Sep 1, 2008

 

Why is it perfectly acceptable for people wishing to protest the Iraq war to act like a bunch of two-year-olds?  According to several reports anti-war protesters marched through the streets of St. Paul, Minnesota en route to the Xcel Center site of the Republican National Convention.  Had they been carrying signs and marching peacefully, that would have been the end of the story.

But it isn’t.

Of the estimated 8,000 – 10,000 protesters many were seen and subsequently arrested for various acts of vandalism including smashing windows, puncturing tires and throwing bottles... (more)

The Greatest Week In Comedy

By D. E. Carson, published on Aug 31, 2008

 

What happened in Denver, Colorado? Left-wing liberals spent four days last week trying to convince everyone who hasn't imbibed in the Kool-Aid that Obama is "the one ordained by God for America at this time." At least that's what Nancy Pelosi said about him. Then when she spoke at the convention Monday, she was heckled by protesters chanting, "Drill here! Drill Now!" She responded by saying, "Here? You want to drill right here? How about if we drill your heads?" That's real mature from the current Speaker of the House. But then Nancy Pelosi has never been in danger of being mistaken... (more)

Los Angeles To Force Day Laborer Accommodation

By D. E. Carson, published on Aug 16, 2008

Last Wednesday, the Los Angeles City Council discovered that it actually likes the taste of the illegal alien Kool-Aid. The council adopted an ordinance requiring home improvement stores like Lowe’s and The Home Depot to actually furnish accommodations for day laborers – you know, that organization of mostly illegal aliens who typically congregate in the parking lots of the aforementioned stores circling like vultures hoping that some rich white schlub will take pity on at least one of them, let them follow him home and do whatever project needs to be done. Yeah, those guys.

Right... (more)

There Is Talent In America

By D. E. Carson, published on Aug 7, 2008

Ordinarily I don't watch shows like American Idol, The Bachelor, or America's Got Talent. But tonight I happened to be walking through the living room where the TV was on NBC and I caught the last half hour of America's Got Talent and by golly, I was impressed by the last act of tonight's show.

His name is Kyle Rifkin. He's 38 years old and he grew up in Harlem. His father was an abusive alcoholic and his mother mustered the courage to take her children, including Kyle and leave the father. She left her children with a friend while she dealt with getting away from her abusive husband.... (more)

Obama Is Out Of Touch

By D. E. Carson, published on Aug 6, 2008

 

Last week Barack Obama said that Americans could lower their demand for gas and oil if they would “get regular tune ups and inflate their tires.”

When America stopped laughing itself stupid over Obama’s brilliant energy plan, people began ridiculing him – not because properly inflated tires are a legitimate fuel conservation tactic, but because Obama thinks Americans are that stupid.  All he did was prove how much of a moron he is. 

First of all, half of his recommendation does not apply to the majority of cars on the road today.  How long has it been since you thought... (more)

It's Not My Job

By D. E. Carson, published on Aug 6, 2008

Have you ever been standing in a store or even at work and heard the words That’s not my job?  Earlier today, I walked passed a conversation, of which I was not intended to be a part, nor did I care to participate and I heard someone say, “It’s not my job.”  As I walked out of earshot of the conversation I muttered under my breath to myself, “And it’s no damn wonder nothing ever gets done around here.”

That is the mentality workers in America have taken and it sucks.  Americans should be ashamed of themselves for even thinking something isn’t their job.  If you work for someone it is... (more)

Kathy Hilton Offended By Mccain

By D. E. Carson, published on Aug 3, 2008

 

Now let me get this straight.  Kathy Hilton, the mother of Hotel Heiress Paris Hilton is offended by John McCain's use of her daughter's likeness in a campaign ad comparing her daughter and Brittney Spears to Barack Obama in terms of over-the-top popularity and outlandish public display.

Yet when the Paris Hilton sex tape made its way to the Internet, Kathy said nothing.  Yet when Paris was first picked up for DUI, Kathy said nothing.  Yet when Paris was again picked up for DUI, Kathy said nothing.  Yet when Paris was dragged off to jail by LA County Sheriff's deputies, Kathy... (more)

Villaraigosa Boasts $1.6 Million Campaign Fund

By D. E. Carson, published on Aug 2, 2008

We haven’t finished fighting over whether or not to turn off the lights in the House of Representative chambers and already, Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa is sizing up his next potential run at the mayor’s office. And why shouldn’t he? After all he managed to secure most of that money back in June while he was on the stump for Hillary Clinton. Let’s not forget that the single most important part of the job of the mayor of Los Angeles is to be out crisscrossing the country for presidential candidates.

While no official offer was ever made, there was most likely some sort of... (more)
