A follow up to: Democrats vote to destroy democracy

The National Republican Senatorial Committee has put up a new video on YouTube in response to the Democrats push behind their bill to demolish a workers right to a secret ballot when deciding to unionize or not.

It's a pretty powerful piece of political campaigning made all the more effective by the fact that the only people seen and heard in the ad are the Democrats themselves.

Hat tip to Captain Ed, who has been on top of this story since the beginning.

Give them points for trying

Sure, they might have been responsible for the deaths of 2 million Cambodians, 40 million Chinese, 1.7 million Congonese (?), 6 million Jews and countless soviets but all those other fascist dictators had one thing over George Bush, they cared about their country.

At least that's the argument being put forward by Huffpo contributer Peter Mehlman and to no ones great surprise, there are very few Huffpo commentors pointing out the sheer lunacy of his statements but instead they are climbing over each other to agree and compliment his thinking.

You could almost laugh it all away except for the fact that within the next 18 months these same people will have a hand in choosing who the next President of the United States will be.

Democrats vote to destroy democracy

How is this story (by way of Captain's Quarters) not leading off the news segments of the morning news shows?

You have blatant vote buying of politicians by a group that often uses tactics on par with organized crime; in fact the two groups have very strong historical ties. The legislation in question has no redeeming value for the electorate and it violates one of the most basic tenets of democracy.

Could it have anything to do with the fact this violation of the peoples trust is being proposed by the Democrats? I'm sure the MSM wouldn't be that obvious in their bias would they?

You'll notice that even though they report it, the New York Times does their best to make this open sign-up bill as a positive move for workers because as we all know, having to write your name on a card voting for union leadership could never possibly be used against you, union people being so loving and forgiving and all.

This one takes the cake

By way of Hot Air, The Episcopalian Church welcomes it's first Muslim Priest.

Suprise at the UN

Well I'm surprise they would be so direct in their antisemitism.

It's like their not even willing to put the effort into pretending anymore. You'd think with all the money these poor countries pour into keeping these bureaucratic fat cats living the high life in New York they'd at least put on a little bit of a show when trying to push forward their "Jews are the cause of all the worlds problems" agenda but I guess they've passed the point of even caring. It's just sad.

It's like the last episode of Seinfeld all over again (and yes I get the irony in the comparison but honestly, it was the first example I thought of).



I'm not the biggest Michael Moore fan out there, but I decided to give his latest movie Sicko a shot. For the first 30 minutes Moore manages to actually make a pretty good documentary. He does this by focusing mainly on peoples individual horror stories with their HMO's as well as showing Insurance company insiders explaining how things work.

It isn't until he begins to ask the question "Who invented this system?" that the movie moves from strict documentary into the realm of the Michael Moore documentary with it's half truths, misdirection and selective facts.

Even without doing some independent research to expose his 'mistruthes', Moore's editing tricks are quite easy to see for those who are looking. For instance, any part way observant person will notice that when Moore and his boatload of 9/11 rescue workers face off against the guard towers at Gitmo it only shows his face when he is calling out (quite softly for an attempt to talk to a tower several hundred yards away) to the towers to let in the workers for medical attention. When he picks up his bullhorn and yells out the more challenging statements about them only wanting the same care as the US is giving the 'evil doers' you will notice the camera quickly pans to someone else on the boat, never actually showing him say those things. The odd way the camera avoids Moore only when he is supposedly making these more inflammatory statements very strongly implies to those of us who have read up on Moore's previous antics, that the audio you hear is more the result of some post production sound editing than any live recording.

I'm just amazed how someone can make a documentary on a topic like health care in the US, a system most people will admit is highly problematic, and actually make someone come out with sympathy for the HMO's, but Moore does. If he had kept up with the flow of the original 30 minutes he could have made a very powerful movie that with all the exposure normally afforded him, could have had the potential to foster actual change, but instead he resorts back to his old tricks and creates enough holes in his arguments that any defenders of the current American system could drive a semi through sideways.

I guess like most Moore documentaries this ones gets a 4 for looks but a 1 for substance.

If you want to see it for yourself, for the time being Say Anything Blog has the movie, in it's entirety, in this post.

Time for Lucifer to sharpen his Ice Skates

Hell is on it's way to sub-zero temperatures.

I'm linking this because you're not likely to see it's like again any time soon, but here is a link (h/t to HotAir) to a Democratic blog that actually makes sense.

It starts out normal enough, with an attempt at a dig at Republican Presidential hopeful (though not official) Fred Thompson, but somehow, and I'm sure to the bloggers surprise, the rational wing of the Democratic party (and yes, while mostly silenced and marginalized they do exist) manages to take control of the thread and debate the issues, and lo' and behold, they consensus seems to be Fred was right.

It's only a small thread with a hand full of comments but it's a start.

If anything this attempted attack may have pushed a few middle of the road Dems over to the Thompson camp. For a guy who hasn't even offically announced yet he seems to be doing pretty good for himself. Maybe he should just wait till the actual voting day to officially announce his candidacy. With the way things have been going by that time his popularity may be up in the high 80's.

Congrats to the Anaheim Ducks

New Stanley Cup Champions. I hate to say it but they deserved it.

So to consul all those Ottawa fans out there like me, here's a little something as far away from professional hockey as you can get; ventriliquism videos from YouTube:

Very Funny:

Even funnier:


It might not make the pain go away, but it will give you an excuse for those tears in your eyes.

Pronger Suspended for 1 Game

How in the world did he only get 1 game for that hit last night.

It was a blatant attempt to injure, but beyond that it was his second offense since the payoffs began!

If this was his first I would be ticked off about the 'light penalty' but it would be in keeping with the NHL's guidelines, or lack thereof, in terms of punishment, but being the second, you really have to go out of your way to make allowances to let him stay in the finals.

It's a sad statement about officiating in the NHL these playoffs that you have 2 suspensions in 2 weeks on the same guy and neither resulted in any time in the box.

P.S. I'm sure the Sharks will be surprised that they have a 1 game lead in the Stanley Cup finals. That's accuracy for you.

Sure, some may accuse Will Ferrel of child abuse but dang, if you can't make kids say amazingly inappropriate things what good are they.

If you think Pearl was bad you should have heard my youngest nephew every time he saw a 'truck' drive by.

Just when I thought I was out...

... they pull me back in.

I've been able to pretty much ignore the Wii virtual console since every time I checked there was nothing I wanted, but after reviewing some of the games now available I'm having a hard time not leaving my office to go buy a Nintendo points card.

Curse you Mario, and you're little Yoshi too!
