  1. Of course the hidden hand of the NYT that keeps the Obama administration from falling into the abyss would find MrObama’s aloof, disinterest and lack of personal political skills as something to be admired.
    The truth is that MrO is only interested in racial/special interest politics and questionable environmental issues. He’s abandoned all attempts to oversee foreign affairs after being ignored and diminished by other foreign leaders.
    If the Dems lose the majority in the Senate, or can’t win a majority in Congress, then his last two years will be the lamest of the lame-duck Presidency.

  2. From the Washington Times article ( http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2013/jul/15/feds-admit-improper-scrutiny-candidate-donor-tax-r/#ixzz2ZDY1EVZ6 ):

    “The Treasury Department has admitted for the first time that confidential tax records of several political candidates and campaign donors were improperly scrutinized by government officials, but the Justice Department has declined to prosecute any of the cases.”

    No prosecution for sharing the tax returns of political (IOW Republican) candidates? Surprise, surprise. The Injustice Department is led by an unprincipled partisan leftist hack who is owned lock, stock, and barrel by Preezy Revenge…

    • This is the Obama Royal Court. They do not answer to the people. We may joke about this but with DOJ simply refusing to enforce the law or investigate government abuse there simply is no government of, by, and for the people.

      Eric Holder is simply a corrupt Attorney General doing the dirty work for Barack Obama. He is untouchable and unaccountable.

      And with such massive invasions of privacy at almost every level, armed only with what are now not much more than windbag congressional hearings we have little recourse but to submit.

      So, I am going to go out and smash a store window, score a big tv and some new sneaks, grab a bag of chips and honor Trayvon.

      • I’m sure you’re referring to BHO when you say “he is untouchable and unaccountable”, but that applies to Holder as well. What ever happened to Eric Holder sic-ing a federal judge into signing permission to investigate James Rosen as a potential co-conspirator?

          • I think since I did do one and published it here without comment it is your turn. I tentatively suggested a cowboy theme the other day. But perhaps you might want to do something with the blond black, or black blond — or just perhaps a haiku about Starbucks. Or perhaps Trayvon. We are supposed to be honoring him. Seize the syllables!

          • I am assuming your haiku will not be from dropped words….you rarely do that. But haiku or not, I enjoy your thoughtful posts and funny comments.

          • oops. And this is not the beginning of a new HAIKU.

            Actually Julie I think of them as one and the same person. Both corrupt and unaccountable.

            I don’t know what happened to the judge/Rosen thing. I suspect everyone was bought off with the new DOJ ruling re. the press.

            Pretty much like you said the other day. Squirrel. There are so many squirrels and so much corruption that we are hopelessly mired. Not one tea party group investigated by the IRS has been contacted since the first investigations. The IRS will be in every cranny in America with Obamacare. And the FBI will probably “secure” each home before the “tax collection”.

            And Lois Lerner will still be on paid vacation.

            I don’t see anything changing as long as Obama rules and the leftist progressives are further entrenched in every institution. At one time the American people were the bulwark. The majority of them seem to be otherwise occupied.

      • You better not be a “creepy ass cracker” or you will be the first one hauled on the paddy wagon, gracepmc. Only so-called oppressed former slaves are allowed to loot and ransack in honor of Trayvon.

  3. The best article I have read on the Zimmerman verdict so far was by someone named Jason Riley in today’s WSJ: “Race, Politics, and the Zimmerman Trial”. It’s not politically correct, of course, but it’s the author’s belief that we can never improve race relations here unless we face the hard, cold facts. A couple of the statistics he used were that 1) although blacks make up only 13% of the US population, between 1976 and 2005 they committed more than half the murders in the country and 2) although they make up 10% of St. Louis, they have committed 58% of crime in that city. Some 90% of black murder victims are killed by other blacks.

    “So, let’s have our discussions, even if the only one that really needs to occur is within the black community. Civil-rights leaders today choose to keep the focus on white racism instead of personal responsibility, but their predecessors knew better.”

    • And then there’s this quote from the Rev. Jesse Jackson:

      1993 PUSH convention:
      “There is nothing more painful to me at this stage of my life than to walk down the street and hear footsteps and start thinking about Robbery — then look around and see somebody white and feel relieved.”

        • A few years ago I was accosted by two black teenagers in the parking structure at Century City. They had knives and demanded my purse and car keys. I complied immediately – just thankful that I lived to tell the tale. The brazenness of these thugs is mind boggling.
