Good gravy, Gentle Readers. I was going to wait until March to resume putting out this E-rag, but recent events have given me itchy fingertips. And now I scarcely know where to begin. As I have previously stated (and this is a quote from Lily Tomlin, a Leftist, I know; but it is apt): I try to be cynical, but it's really hard to keep up.
Okay, first item.
GUN CONTROL ADVOCATE GOES NUTS, KILLS THREE COPS AND A CIVILIAN
Yes, I am aware that you have probably heard of Christopher Dorner, the fired LAPD cop and former Navy dude who went on a rampage against the police because he percieved himself as a "victim of racism", having been fired for making false statements in an Internal Affairs investigation of "police brutality". Here at the Alexandria Daily Poop, however, we tend to be Paul Harveyesque and bring you "the rest of the story".
The rogue ex-cop published a lunatic "manifesto" on Facebook which has been mentioned in the lamestream media. What they DON'T say about it is that the killer in his "manifesto" called for strict gun control.
Well, it's not surprising that this nutball wanted everyone else disarmed. It was quite convenient that the man whose truck he hijacked and the couple who came to check on the cabin he was hiding in were completely unarmed.
Funny, isn't it; that many of the national figures such as Diane Fienstein who want to make it unlawful for the peons to have weapons carry one themselves.
And extremely UN-funny is the way even the LAPD and its multiphasic personality exams and extensive background screenings failed to detect the bat in Dorner's belfry.
We have written before that these killers tend to attack "soft targets". Dorner attacked mostly "hard targets"; but he had been specially trained to do just that. As the LAPD Chief of Police said: "Of course he knows what he's doing. We trained him."
THE STATE OF THE UNION SPEECH
The State of the Union speech by Mr. Obama was more of a dog-and-pony show than any other SOTU has ever been. Of course, Mr. Obama demagogued "gun control", showcasing the weepy relatives of shooting victims from Newtown and former Rep. Gabby Giffords and her husband Marc. (And also the relatives of a Chicago girl who had sang at his re-inauguration and had recently been shot in Chicago; which has the most stringent gun control in the nation. Which begs the question of how that strict gun control is working out for Chicagoans.)
The rest of the speech was an extended pledge to not add another dime to the deficit, followed by a laundry list of programs which would inevitably do just that. Maybe what he meant was something akin to the claim that you can't eat just ONE potato chip. One quarter demagoguery, three quarters twaddle, one hundred percent absolute bullshit.
MARIO RUBIO'S OFFICIAL REPUBLICAN RESPONSE TO THE STATE OF THE UNION
Which of course was brilliant, and called out Mr. Obama point-by-point. Which is why all the lamestream media and the left will let anyone see a repeat of is the point at which he found it necessary to reach way over to his left to get a sip of water. The talk shows on MSLSD and Chicken Noodle News were just full of japes, not on the substance of the speech (except to call it a "junior high school debate society level" speech) but about "Watergate II" and "Zero Dark Thirsty" and "Rubio's drinking problem". This is because they dasn't tackle the truths Rubio spoke. One commentator asked if this "episode" might be "the end of (Rubio's) political career.
That's what they are aiming at: to stifle dissent. Card-carrying Communist and former Obama "Czar of Green Jobs" Van Jones let the cat out of the bag when he called Rubio "dangerous" to the Democrat Party left.
OH FOR THE LOVE OF PETE, NO. NOT THAT "REDSKINS ARE RACIST" CRAP AGAIN.
Yes, the move is on again to force the Washington Redskins NFL franchise to change its name. Now, I am qualified to speak to this issue, seeing as how I am 1/8th Cherokee. As I have previously explained, my great-grandmother was a 16 year old Cherokee maiden in Oklahoma when she was smitten by a young handsome U.S. Cavalry officer, who was suddenly and perhaps not so mysteriously transferred when she became pregnant with my grandfather. When GGM gave birth, she gave her son the last name "Norman" after the nearby settlement of Norman, Oklahoma in the hope that the name might give him some advantage. My dad had to endure taunts about being the "son of a half-breed". So, anyway.
Since about the mid-1980s ther has been a growing drumbeat (shut up) demanding that the Redskins change their name. All sorts of tactics have been tried including a lawsuit alleging something about an "offensive trademark". People have asked why nobody would even think of calling a team the "Retards" or the "Wops" or the "Niggers".
Bullcrap about what "Redskin" means has been tossed about. There have been people who ought to know better saying that "Redskins" comes from the fact that back in the old days, Indians were hunted for a bounty, paid for on reciept of a bloody scalp, called a "red skin". Bullcrap. Indians didn't live in centrally-air-conditoned condos and hunt buffalo in air-conditioned offices. Spend as much time outdoors as they did, and see what color your skin is.
The reality is, this call for a "Redskins name-change" is just another attempt to enforce "political correctness" and control the language and the larger debate. The "Kids Post" section of the Washington Post exposed exactly what the Left is attempting in this assault on the name of a football team. The idiot who wrote the "Kids Post" piece said that since football is an entertainment for families, the team should have a name that reflects "kindness". Pussycats are warm and cuddly. How about the Washington Pussies?
Yeah, me too. GO REDSKINS! SUPERBOWL 2014!!
I guess now this blog is up-to-date.
