"This Thursday marks the beginning of Texas’ new fiscal year, and with it a slew of conservative legislation signed by Gov. Rick Perry (R) takes effect.

Among those laws is the highly controversial sonogram law Perry signed in May, forcing pregnant women seeking abortions to undergo a medically unnecessary ultrasound at least 24 hours before an abortion and to hear a description of the fetus."

What is the goal here? To make the victim of rape or sexual abuse feel guilty? To make a mother who knows that her unborn child is very ill feel worse about deciding not to have her child suffer through life?

You want Govt out of your lives but isn't this exactly what you are against?

Rafe- I noticed that none of the fringy intellects here ever responded to this reasonable question that you posted the other day. I suspect Perry will most likely secede from the race over the next couple of months.

Fascinating how I've made Gringoman do nothing but babble straw numerous nonsensical straw replies that not even DJ understands, to the point that HE actually has to lie (skits?) and pretend he does because he knows NO ONE gets the obtuse babble.

Does Gringo have any family that can commit him like UG's did?

Corruption in Science is spreading like a disease, and no doubt Obama probably thinks throwing money at problems like these, will solve the problem.

Now Japanese scientists at the Univ. of Tokyo, are lying about the Fukushima accident. They declared there were few problems at the facility while three reactors were in active meltdown. When asked about plutonium residue found outside the reactor containment vessel, they related it might be leftover from the US bombing in WW2.

What is clear is that they either lied to the public, or were totally detached from reality and just making things up to feed the public. No doubt, in either case they are trading in their credibility with the public for money, and exposing the public to possible hazards because of their misinformation.

Why should the Japanese public pay them for this?
Furthermore, aren't they actually guilty of fraud, and deception?

Love him or hate him, Ron Paul has been consistently right about the economic issues that face America. He understands better than all the candidates what is causing the bubble/burst economic cycles we've been subjected to. Moreover, he offers common sence solutions to the problem. He rates an A+ on economic issues in my book.

Rick Perry panic fires up the left

Why is the panic spreading (even among the originally Connecticut House of Boosh operatives? Perry is perceived as pro-America, pro-business, pro-gun, pro-God,pro-military, pro-Constitution and anti-Marxocracy, i.e. TOO TEXAN for the Beltway Gang. Progs say he is anti-woman, anti-choice, anti-Union boss, anti-welfare nation, anti-Wall Street crony capitalists (he takes from Texas wealthy not from the Left's Soros, Buffet, Gates, Fannie and Freddie billionaires, GE's "greenie" Jeffrey Imelt,oil sheiks, China, Goldman Sachs etc and their SLIME mediaacks)

gringoman

The word progressive denotes or implies that the people involved are working to move their cause in a POSITIVE direction. Hence, the word progressive is a gross misnomer when comes to describing the left.

Why?

Because the left is progressing towards socialist economics and cultural-Marxism.

A better, more accurate word to describe those on the left would be regressive. Or to be even more accurate leftists should call themselves regressive-socialists.

Posted by: DJ | August 30, 2011 at 10:26 PM

Bingo, DJ. This reminds me that the classic term used by Left to demonize opponents, "reactionary," is a perfect description of themselves today. They always denounce opponents as being "obstacles" to progress. And yet, after a full century of socialism's failures, not to mention nightmares and atrocities all over the world, what do they do: As Americans try to plow forward to liberty, the socialists want to stop this and drag them into what has failed, demonstrably, all over the planet.

But don't expect any trolls to get this, which is why Mark Levin (and I) say they are a droning waste of time. This, if it's not clear by now, is why I do not bother to address any of them directly. They're not worth it. What I think of them should be clear from the appearances of trolls like MARXELLA X. TROLLSCUM, not to mention J. BOOBUS MARXOTROLL. That's one way of dealing with nasty jerks and arrogant ignoramuses.

But then I keep getting signs that he's not putting it on. He really is dumb as a rock. I wonder how he even got a driver's license---assuming that's not a lie. Scummela and Dem Talking Points must be proud. Or maybe not. Yes, he might have made it in old timey vaudeville, or movies with titles like, THE DUMBEST IN THE WORLD. With that kind of dumb he should be trying out for cable TV. But he's too dumb to realize that.

MARXELLA X TROLLSCUM/// GOP Nazis, leave our Troll Boobus alone, or I'll tell Satan on you! So what if Booby is an idiot, he's our idiot, i.e. he is for we the Progressives, like the poor babies and Warren BUffet and Jeffrey Imelt and George Soros and----you get the picture? Don't worry about the hole in Booby's head. I have enough brains for both of us, in fact all of us, including you! You don't know that by now?

Rick Perry Continues Baseless Attacks On Obama For Statement On Israel’s 1967 Borders

By Ben Armbruster on Aug 15, 2011 at 10:47 am


It’s no secret that most of the Republicans running for president are trying to paint President Obama as Israel’s enemy. During the Fox News debate last week, former Minnesota governor Tim Pawlenty — who has since dropped out of the race — said Obama “repeatedly sticks his thumb in Israel’s eye.”

It’s important to remember that while the Obama-hates-Israel lines get good applause from the far right, this notion has no basis in reality. Take for example Obama’s statement last May that “the borders of Israel and Palestine should be based on the 1967 lines with mutually agreed swaps.” Despite the fact that the president was merely reiterating settled U.S. policy, right-wing hawks cried foul, saying Obama had sold out Israel. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu also initially fussed about Obama’s 1967 borders statement, but he has since agreed to peace talks based on Obama’s policy and Rep. Steny Hoyer (D-MD) said last week that Netanyahu told him that he and Obama “were in agreement” on the issue.

Yet the facts don’t seem to be getting in the way of a good attack line. Announcing his candidacy for president over the weekend, Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R) continued this trend, falsely claiming that Obama is trying to dictate “new borders” for Israel:


jay

“The idea that the President would make this statement about going back to the ’67 borders sent a chill down all of my friends’ back and certainly mine,” Perry said in an interview with Time last week. But it’s unclear why Obama’s 1967 borders statement should worry Perry and his pals. It doesn’t worry Netanyahu, Israel’s opposition leader, and most Israelis and Palestinians. “I should tell you honestly that the president didn’t say that Israel should go back to the borders of ’67,” said Israeli defense minister Ehud Barak last week, who added, “I can hardly remember a better period of support, American support” for Israel

DJ,

I don't get the alarm for Perry out of this that you seem to. The author sounds sensible, but in the sense of a cradle-to-grave liberal jew who fears that maybe he'll need Socialist Sammy to give him a proper burial one day. As Michael Savage points out, there are Jews like this. You see them in restaurants in Florida, cramming their pockets with leftover begals and lox and even the silverware. Obama's Brain, David Axelrod, from Bolshevik Boulevard in the Lower East Side, would be a master at playing to them (he probably has relatives just like them)just as he will remain discreetly silent as his vicious black hacks heat up the silent Race War, one of them now declaring that the Tea Party wants to see blacks hanging from trees.

As for two of the biggest names in Talk Radio, both Jews:

ANN COULTER AND THE DARWINIACS

But that's not what the fossil record shows. We don't have fossils for any intermediate creatures in the process of evolving into something better. This is why the late Stephen Jay Gould of Harvard referred to the absence of transitional fossils as the "trade secret" of paleontology. (Lots of real scientific theories have "secrets.")

If you get your news from the American news media, it will come as a surprise to learn that when Darwin first published "On the Origin of Species" in 1859, his most virulent opponents were not fundamentalist Christians, but paleontologists.

Unlike high school biology teachers lying to your children about evolution, Darwin was at least aware of what the fossil record ought to show if his theory were correct. He said there should be "interminable varieties, connecting together all the extinct and existing forms of life by the finest graduated steps."

SOCIALIST SAMMY'S BLACK HACKS

Kevin Jackson, author of “The Big Black Lie” and founder of TheBlackSphere.net, tells Newsmax that Carson’s remark will give him “street cred” in the black community. “Of course, if you walk around in the black community and say ‘the tea party can go to hell,’ you get cheered,” Jackson says. “Now, any reasonable person would say if a group has been around for three years, and you’ve been experienced what you’ve had in the black community for decades, you shouldn’t be blaming the tea party . . . That’s the level of absurdity that we have, where these guys can point the finger at some obscure specter, some notion: ‘They’re the reason for the demise of the black community.’ As if the tea party is going secretly at night and doing drive-bys in the black community, impregnating black kids, and foreclosing on black homes and kicking people out.”

PERRY AS C-130 PILOT

BELDAR////I was reminded of this point today by this post by ArthurK at Ace's, which compares and contrasts Perry's USAF work environment with President Obama's.

But looking at the photos in that post made me wonder if I'd erred in thinking only about Perry's duty as a C-130 pilot. And so I asked a very close friend who's a former USAF instructor pilot with lots of time in lots of different kinds of aircraft; and although my friend and I are a few years younger than Perry, my friend's brother is within a year of Perry's age and was also a USAF pilot, so I think their observations are likely to be well-informed.

My friend assures me that based on the pilot training Perry necessarily would have had in route to his ultimate assignment flying C-130 Hercules cargo planes, Perry "would absolutely have trained in the T-37 and T-38 before being assigned to the C-130 (which, for some real trivia, is a turboprop-powered aircraft, which some consider to qualify as flying a jet; certainly, even though there are propellers on the '130, they're turned by jet engines!)."

The T-37 is a relatively slow and uniquely maneuverable training jet in which, among other things, Perry would have been trained in spin entry and recovery techniques that were too dangerous to try to learn in faster, hotter jets. But the T-38 is the real deal — for all practical purposes, it's a supersonic jet fighter used for advanced pilot training before pilots get their post flight-school assignments. Indeed, rebranded and slightly modified as the F-5, these aircraft are still in use as a fighter in the air forces of many American allies, and T-38s are still flying for the U.S. Air Force, Navy, and NASA. Perry's training in the T-38 would have included solo cross-country flights.

And such is the magic of the internet that a search engine query for "Rick Perry T-38" returns this image:

Rick Perry beside his Northrup T-38 Talon supersonic jet trainer

So: I'll no longer be correcting anyone who asserts that Perry "flew jets" in the USAF. He almost certainly did, and did so proficiently, as part of his training before he was assigned to C-130s. And setting aside the "jets versus non-jets" question: Flying big multi-engine aircraft presents a different but no less intimidating set of challenges than flying, say, a T-38 or an F-16. Perry can be justifiably proud of his service flying C-130s, and it is indeed fair to highlight that service as a credential now — not because he would need to pilot aircraft as POTUS, but because he'd need to command their pilots.

PERRY, HE 'STOOOOOPIT'

The left won’t believe Toobin, or any like him who try to alert them to the danger. Too much of their self-identity is wrapped up in feeling oh-so-superior to their enemies, they will joyfully self-immolate before they give up on that sacred doctrine.

It still surprises me how almost no one in the MSM saw what Perry was doing with the Bernanke comment. Just ask yourself – how popular is Ben Bernanke on Main Street right now? Do the ranks of the unemployed look up and say “Oh thank you Ben Bernanke for saving your friends in the big banks but not me!!!”
Is Ben Bernanke the man who’s face you would want on your Campaign Ads, on account of how popular he is with the voters?

Bernanke is the emobodiment of the Banking system which people on Main Street feel has left them to rot. It isn’t just the tea-party; the Progressive’s on the hard left rail continually about how Obama’s should be harder on the Bankers, and make THEM pay!

So look what Perry did – in what is being called a “thoughtless act”, he positioned himself as the friend of Main Street, made an enemy of the man the public sees as the Head Banker who’s ripping them off while enriching his friends at Goldman Sachs, and forced Obama to jump in and tie himself even more tightly to the Big Bankers the public hates. He just played the populist card right over Obama’s head, and no one on the left realizes what he did – as far as Central Bankers go, he’s just moved to the LEFT of Obama! And all Obama can do is stutter about it and bite on his lip.

Oh, but Perry just happened to do this by accident. No way could he have thought all of this out beforehand. I guess he’s just lucky.

gringoNOTE: Now repeat after me. "Perry, he stupid."
