The Pink Flamingo has made no secret of the fact that I am far from thin. This said, I must also admit that I have a very real addiction problem. I love cheese enchiladas. I don’t want much on them, just a little red and a heck of a lot of salsa. I want cheddar cheese, That’s it. Contrary to how terribly sinful it sounds, it isn’t that bad. I don’t do sour cream, and I can’t stand green sauce, which is made with chicken fat. Now that’s nasty. Three cheese enchiladas, plain have about 450 calories. That’s not bad. It’s not fried, has very little salt, the cheese is protein, and the corn tortillas are not bad for you.
Since the dawn of the new cooking oils (saffron, sunflower, canola) I have developed some very serious food allergies, to the point where I’m at the throat closing, can’t breath, nearly pass out stage. These allergies never bothered me before it was determined that “we” needed to be doing healthy oils. I have a serious sunflower allergy, and many of these oils are made in the same presses.
If you ever wanted proof that the Obama version of “government” would be an abject disaster in dealing with socialized …Read the Rest
The Pink Flamingo has repeatedly this week stated that something about this attempted man made disaster just doesn’t pass the smell test. First, we learn that the CIA has been tracking our little bomber for months. Then we learn that a smartly dressed Pakistani helped Umar Farouk Abdul Mutallab on to the plane. This is about an Administration who is incapable of connecting the dots on Terror.
There is one question The Pink Flamingo wants to ask. Is it possible Umar Farouk Abdul Mutallab had help getting on those planes. I’m not talking “little help” but someone in a position of a little bit of power who let this guy get through check-points? Right now the Obama Administration is looking like a bunch of Keystone Cops. There goes that Smell Test.
Who let this kid slip through dogs, scans, check-lists, etc with a bomb?
Do you really think an alienated, depressed, possibly suicidal young man could slip through security without some “inside” assistance?
While we are are asking questions, perhaps it is time to suspend the religious rhetoric and get back to some basics. Look at the guy’s profile:
Umm….where have we seen these characteristics before? Want to be a little bit honest here? Like The Pink Flamingo says, dump the religious angle. We’re dealing with the same personality profile as two young men who destroyed a school in Colorado. It is the same profile of a young man who goes on a rampage on a college campus in Virginia.
The only difference – this time the father tried to warn authorities that his son was up to no good.
What if we are dealing with some truly evil master minds who are manipulating disturbed, obsessed, depressed, alienated, and possibly suicidal young men into doing something for their “religion”?
Which is more frightening?
We think the implications of Islamic terror are horrifying, but what if there are much greater implications – an entire generation of young men, the world over, who have the same profile, irregardless of religion?
Jasper Schuringa knows more about fighting terror than Barack Obama. And – it is paying off for him, which it should!
Are we feeling better now that Obama is in office?
On Christmas Day, Barack Obama was not notified of a terror attempt for three hours. In an attempt to prove that he could react when necessary, he brought the state of Hawaii to a hault in order to get back to the estate where he is vacatining. Earlier on Monday, Barack Obama, in what was an obvious attempt to avoid a potential lawsuit, fled his golf game (he has played more in one year than GWB did in 8 years) to check on some little kid who managed to get hurt while obviously playing with his kids. One wonders just how much money this emergency motorcade cost the be-leaguered American taxpayer, but then it is rather obvious that America’s very own POTUS version of Barney Fife doesn’t give a damn about the taxpayer.
Barney Fife and the Constitution of the United States of America. Yea, it reminds The Pink Flamingo of Barack Obama, too. Hugh Hewitt has a litany of The Barney Fife Presidency’s Failures – which are legion.
To quote C3PO “We’re doomed.”
You know the far right has gone too far when they turn on Newt Gingrich.
On O’Reilly Thursday night, Laura Ingraham did nothing but complain about Obama and his administration and Dems in general. She talked about how they set out to destroy the reputation of those they oppose. They lie, they denigrate, and will do just about anything to ruin a person’s reputation. She was quite upset about it. In her next breath she started complaining about the likes of John McCain, Lindsey Graham, and RINOS who were out to doom the conservative movement. She did nothing but denigrate and lie about Lindsey.
In other words, it is okay to destroy a “RINO” if you are a pure conservative who is trying to keep the party pure. Protecting the country doesn’t matter as much as purity and ideology. If this is what conservatives are up to, then they don’t give a damn about the fate of the country, only their personal agenda.
I gather Laura Ingraham, Michelle Malkin, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Glenn Beck, etc. are only interested in their “pure” agenda, and aren’t interested in recapturing the House and Senate from the Dems. If they did, they would use some rational thinking and realize a majority is more important than purity. Only FOOLS demand purity.
This is a lesson in the ways the far, far, far right tries to destroy a very good man. It is NOT about normal, decent conservatives, libertarians, and independents. It is about a handful of vile, nasty extreme right conservatives who have absolutely nothing to do with the Republican Party, but spent their venial time doing everything possibly to destroy, defame, and denigrate good, decent men and women who do not agree with them.
The real problem here is the fact that there is no differentiation between “conservative” and “Republican”. We automatically know that when we are dealing with “liberals”, a good 95% of them are Democrats. But – when we are dealing with the term “conservative” that is not the case at all. Most are either Republican or usually vote Republican, but there is a very vocal minority who basically control all things conservative online. They number in their midst some very powerful blogging voices who are regular commentators on FOX. A decent Republican doesn’t stand a chance – until Republicans get smart and start calling down the thunder.
Evidently the mantra of “drill baby drill” is not longer acceptable to the Far Right.
What’s wrong with building new nuclear power plants?
I thought energy independence was a good thing.
Evidently it is, but only if it is proposed by someone other than Lindsey Graham.
The irony here is that what he and John Kerry are proposing isn’t far from what Sarah Palin is advocating.
The real problem – Lindsey is not “pure” enough for the far right. The worst part of this – if Sarah Palin, Tim Pawlenty, Bobby Jindal, Mike Pence, Jim DeMint or even Ron Paul had proposed this the far right would be heralding the breakthrough as a way to defeat the far left.
First, The Pink Flamingo wants to go on record that we are dealing with climate change. I did NOT say global warming. I fear we are going to be hitting a period of global cooling due to the sun. If we experience one big volcanic eruption like Pinatubo, we’re looking at some serious global cooling – major cooling – another minor ice age. There are several things in this life that are consistent. First, always count on Lindsey to throw a curve and step into a fast-ball at the same time. Second, Michelle Malkin is ALWAYS going to lie about his actions. Then trust all the usual little far right flunkies to pick up on her irrational hatred of him.
I can only imagine what Rush is going to do tomorrow.
They say the devil is in the details. If the usual suspects would bother reading the details, they might discover that Lindsey is NOT selling out their precious and somewhat irrational conservative cause that is increasingly costing us votes. But then no one ever accused Michelle Malkin of being a Republican. Sometimes it just gets plain annoying having to constantly support and defend a man who believes in standing up for something he thinks is right, defending him from the people who don’t possess a small percentage of his honesty and honor. Now though, Lindsey Graham has done the unpardonable….he penned an Op-Ed with John Kerry.
Who knew being a statesman was such a bad thing.
Then again, the far right knows very little about history, or they would know how the Senate actually works.
From The Hill:
“…The two senators wrote that they both agree on five basic premises: (1) climate change is real; (2) the U.S. should take an all-inclusive approach to renewable energy; (3) climate change represents an opportunity to ween the country off foreign oil; (4), climate legislation can’t and won’t cost American jobs; and (5) the bill will protect small businesses….”
Durn – I thought Malkin was conservative.
Obviously she and the usual suspects are once again responding with their usual knee-jerk reactionary far right, anti-GOP hate. Maybe a few of the usual suspects need to read what is really going on here.
I will admit, I was annoyed with Lindsey when I heard he was up to this. I trust him, so I know he is not going to betray our country. I was more annoyed because I’m going to be out there defending what he is going against the usual conservative lies.
Funny thing about lies, you tell them long enough and they are taken as truth. The irony of the fact is the very people who are demanding purity, a return to traditional values, and are constantly damning Obama for his lack of truthfulness. Factual accuracy is a funny thing. It works both ways.
I will be willing to wage my currently very stinky toy poodle that the following usual sources are NOT Republican.
Want to know the real difference between liberals and conservatives?
Liberals usually circle their wagons and stand up for one another.
Conservatives have absolutely no problem eating their own, then going after liberals. The problem is you can’t have it both ways and be intellectually honest, but then intellectual honest is not something the far far right deals with on a regular basis.
From Day One, The Pink Flamingo has been telling you that the Tea Parties WERE NOT designed to benefit the GOP.
I truly hate being right.
Evidently, flexing their “power” Tea Party conservatives now think they can tell the GOP, RNC, etc. just who THEY want running for office. Dick Armey should know better.
The Pink Flamingo has been telling you the whole Tea Party thing is set up to either take over, destroy, or doom the GOP. If these people continue on their current course, they are going to cost us any hope of retaking the House in 2010.
We are dealing with a bunch of jerks who don’t have the courage to fight it out in a primary. I do NOT think their numbers are as large as they want us to think they are. I also know if we get some of their extreme conservative candidates into the primaries they will not win. Those who do ALMOST ALWAYS lose in a general election.
One can’t help but wonder about a group of alleged patriots who want to return the nation back to the principles of the Founding Fathers. In order to achieve their goals they must impose their arrogant and extreme views on an entire political party. Evidently democracy works for them only when it works for them – their way.
“…Tea party organizers say their resistance to Republican Party-backed primary candidates has much to do with what they perceive as the GOP’s stubborn insistence on embracing candidates who don’t abide by a small government, anti-tax conservative philosophy….“It’s an outgrowth of the frustration people have had with the Republican Party,” said Andrew Moylan, director of governmental affairs for the National Taxpayers Union, another group that has played a large role in organizing the tea party movement. “I think a lot of people have been angry at Republicans for betraying our trust.”
“I think the GOP establishment has ignored their constituents and the feelings of their constituents for years,” added Meckler.
It’s an unusual predicament for the Republican Party, since the conservative-oriented issues that animate Tea Party activists once seemed destined to make the movement a valuable auxiliary to the Republican Party….For some, supporting insurgent campaigns or waging primary bids just isn’t a strong enough signal to send to a Republican Party that has abandoned core conservative policies.
“…“Talk radio, MoveOn.org, the 24-hour news cycle makes it very hard to reach across the aisle,” Graham said. It gets polarized. Can you imagine doing D-Day with cable television? Can you imagine writing the Constitution — you know, O’Reilly says Ben Franklin’s giving in on something. Can you imagine having to do that in this environment?…”Do I want some of his policies to fail? You better believe it. Do I want him to fail? No, because he’s my president,” Graham said. “If he fails in Afghanistan, if he fails in Iran, my country fails.“…”
Finally, someone is unloading on Glenn Beck. Naturally it would be Lindsey, and naturally this will be a declaration of war. This is so much fun! Lindsey is saying what most of us are already thinking.
Lesson learned here?
If a person is a famous Hollywood celeb, they can molest children and get away with it.
“…“I know it wasn’t rape-rape. It was something else but I don’t believe it was rape-rape. He went to jail and and when they let him out he was like ‘You know what, this guy’s going to give me a hundred years in jail I’m not staying,’ so that’s why he left.”…” Whoopie
From what I am starting to believe, Democrats and the Obama Administration do not see anything wrong with raping children, as long as it is a good Liberal doing the molestation.
This should sicken every decent person in this country, no matter what their political affiliation.
