Yeeee-HAWWWWWW!

I, for one, would love to see this domesticmango guy do a race on this platform between the General Lee, The Bandit’s Trans Am, and the rides of Sheriffs Rosco P. Coltrane and Buford T. Justice, respectively…just to see who catches whom!
But for now, let out that Rebel Yell as we ROAAAAAR into the Overnight Open Thread!

    A good way to increase the thoughtfulness of future voters. Dennis Prager Link. If you send it out once a month and ask people to pass it on or pay it forward it will reach the hearts that need to be reached.

    Minis, the Mazda Miata, the Subaru WRX STI for low-end ones. The new Subaru/Scion (Toyota) 2 seater has potential, but I haven’t driven one. Look for a turbo version of that in the near future. Classic American asphalt rippers are pretty much confined to the top-end Mustangs and fugly Camaros. If you mean medium to full sized sedans with personality, the answer is “no” until you get up into the exotica range.

    Israel should depopulate Gaza for humanitarian reasons. It is inhumane to expect the Israelis to endure the terrorism that emmanates from Gaza.

    I’m a pretty charitable guy, but I’m beginning to take a “screw ‘em” position on these people.

    President Obama’s most solid strongholds are suffering from economic disaster under his presidency, according to new reports. A University of Michigan study shows that 80 percent of people in southeast Michigan have been blasted by financial problems between 2007 and 2011. Those stastics were even higher among blacks without a college degree.

    Assistant UM Professor of Social Work Kristen Seefeldt stated, according to local reports, that “researchers were shocked by the high levels of food insecurity, with nearly 28 percent of people interviewed did not have stable, reliable access to food or were forced to change their eating habits for financial reasons.” Some people, says Seefeldt, are skipping meals; that included many people with a job.

    A few hundred miles to the East, Boston is running out of giveaway turkeys for the poverty-stricken. Three days in advance of Thanksgiving, the Pear Street Cupboard and Café in Framingham, Massachusetts, is out of turkeys. According to organizers, “requests for help are up 400 percent over last year.”

    Moving south a few hundred miles, New York City food pantries and soup kitchens are shutting down at record rates thanks to overburden. One in four food pantries and soup kitchens have gone dark since 2007. “We’ve seen that food shortages are more commonplace and occur more broadly in our network and when people are turned away from a food pantry or a soup kitchen, it is most commonly due to a lack of food,” said Triada Stampas of the Food Bank for New York City. That was before Hurricane Sandy.

    Until people feel the consequences for their actions, they won’t alter their actions. In today’s United States, there’s no personal responsibility and no consequences for bad decisions. Reelecting Obama was a bad decision foisted upon us largely by those who have no skin in the game. Let ‘em have a taste of consequences, while I have a steaming plate of schadenfreude.

    @ MacDuff:

    Did you see this that I linked yesterday? Susan Estrich is upset that Obama is going to raise her taxes. One thing that you can admit that Obama was clear on was that if he was re-elected taxes were going up. Remember, this woman probably makes more than a million dollars a year. What did she think she was voting for when she voted for Obama? I have no pity for her. If there was a way to tax just the Liberals, I’d be for taxing them at 100% of their earnings. They need to pay their fair share!


  30. 31 | November 21, 2012 7:54 am

    @ MacDuff:
    Another reason why all those soup kitchens and food banks are shutting down is that there are fewer and fewer people able to afford donating to such institutions. That and a larger population base that are thinking that the government is taking care of it. Do you have any extra servings of that schadenfreude?

    As the old saying goes, “everyone wants to go to heaven, but no one wants to die.”

    She seems to waste a lot of words, but her meaning is, essentially, “taxes need to be raised on the rich, but only those who are richer than me -- leave me alone”.

    During an appearance on Fox’s Special Report, Pseudo-intellectual Juan Williams said that Israel is using ‘overkill’ in its attacks on Hamas and the Palestinians in Gaza. Lost on this increasingly unmasked liberal is the fact that Israel has shown unwarranted restraint for years, as Hamas rockets have been fired indiscriminately into civilian neighborhoods. http://shoebat.com/

    Oh, man, I just…nobody’s asking the million dollar question, which is why on 9/11 does an ambassador who has already written in his journal that he’s feared for his life, has already reached out to Foggy Bottom back in Washington, D.C., State Department headquarters, and said I need more security. Why on 9/11 does he leave our fortress-like embassy in Tripoli and go down to Benghazi with a light detail? Why? Nobody’s asking that question, and it blows my mind away that I haven’t heard anybody push the State Department on that issue or the White House. http://hotair.com/greenroom/archives/2012/11/21/the-million-dollar-question-on-benghazi-no-one-is-asking/

    Liberals like Israelis as victims, but when they step up and defend themselves, it’s portrayed as “overkill”. The only thing Israelis can do to assuage the press is die at the hands of the Muslim savages.

    I just sent this to all my members of Congress:

    President Obama & the Democrats are demanding increases in taxes on ‘the rich’ in order to achieve ‘fairness’. While I know that such tax increases won’t touch the extra cost of the massive spending increases we’ve seen, I’d like to propose a compromise.

    I’d suggest a 1%, 1 year ONLY surtax on incomes over $1 million, with a 20-25% surtax on those in the entertainment industry with incomes over $1 million, contingent on real cuts in spending of $100 billion. Double points if you can get a 50% surtax on George Soros.

    The left is getting their beloved symbolic ‘fair’ taxes, we’re getting some real cuts in the bloated federal bureaucracy, and we’re giving the Hollyweird left what they want- the chance to pay higher taxes.

    Thank you for your time & attention.

    Syria’s increasingly powerful Islamist rebel factions have rejected the country’s new Western-backed opposition coalition and unilaterally declared an Islamic state in the key battleground of Aleppo.

    The move highlights the struggle over the direction of the rebellion at a time when the opposition is trying to gain the West’s trust and secure a flow of weapons to fight the regime.

    Giving them the tax increases they deserve:

    What’s the least defensible special break in the U.S. tax code? With so many distortions to choose from, it’s hard to name just one. If forced to pick, I might say the deduction for state and local taxes, which cost $67 billion in fiscal 2011, according to the congressional Joint Committee on Taxation.

    This one overwhelmingly benefits upper-income households in a handful of upper-income states, while rendering the entire nation’s finances less transparent. It’s also a potential source of friction in the “fiscal cliff” negotiations between President Obama and the Republicans (but we’ll get to that in a moment).

    Taxpayers have been allowed to deduct state and local income and property taxes since the federal income tax began in 1913. (Sales taxes have at times been deductible, too, but that’ s a relatively minor issue.) The theory is it’s unfair to make people pay twice for the public services they receive. That’s doubtful, though, since, despite some overlap, federal taxes support different services than state and local.

    What the deduction does is enable higher-income states and localities to tax — and spend — more than they otherwise would, while shifting some of the cost to other states. It also encourages them to collect revenue in forms that are easier to deduct on federal returns.

    End these deductions, and watch the Blue States scream!

    I want to tell you what it’s like to live in most of Israel right now.

    A missile is fired by Hamas in Gaza…

    A siren goes off.

    You get 15 seconds to find shelter.

    I want Americans to think about what that means.

    If you lived in a place where missiles were fired at you…

    Hundreds a day…

    And you would get just 15 seconds to hide…

    How would you live?

    Stop what you’re doing. Run to a basement. A shelter.

    And if you can’t make it inside…

    Lie flat on the ground with your arms over your head.

    That’s life in Israel right now.

    None of us would be willing to accept this.

    None of us would have to.

    Every country has a right to defend itself against terror.

    But they keep telling Israel… “don’t overreact!” “don’t fire back!” “be careful!” “don’t ramp things up!”

    Let me get this straight…

    If Mexico fired a missile into El Paso, you know what we would do?

    If Japan fired a missile into Beijing, you know what China would do?

    So why does Israel have to hold back?

    Why does every country get to defend itself…

    But not Israel?

    Why could that be

    Jordan is one of the remaining “moderate” states in the region, not because it’s an especially wonderful place, but because after the Arab Spring, much of the region has gone Islamist. The Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan is reasonably moderate and friendly to America mainly because it has no other options, with no oil and surrounded by larger countries that would love to gobble it up, it had no choice but to swap out its dependency on the UK for a dependency on the US.

    The Muslim Brotherhood would love to take over Jordan, as they have taken over Egypt, with Obama’s assistance, and as they are trying to take over Syria. But the United States appeared to have exempted Jordan from the Jihad of the Arab Spring. Until now…
