This Really Makes Me Angry!


While I really don't feel well enough to post today, when I saw this picture on Drudge I couldn't help make comment.


This is not a Photoshop. This was actually posted on Obama’s official Tumblr page:

After the passing of a great American, Neil Armstrong, who outside of the great sacrifice America gave the world by defeating the enemies of freedom in WWII, help give America pride and one of the greatest accomplishment of humankind as a whole by setting foot and walking on the moon. Armstrong was a private man of integrity who never sought the limelight. 

Yet the Self Absorbed resident of the White House pays tribute, not with a picture of an American Hero , BUT OF HIMSELF!

This angers me beyond believe! If this doesn't prove he deserves no respect, nothing does!

I'm Still Here....

Sorry I haven't posted anything for my regular readers this week, but I have had a severe medical problem that has arisen and I haven't felt to much like Diogenes lately. I'll be back as soon as I feel better.

The Ryan Choice

DiploMad 2.0

I will leave to those more qualified to analyze and spin the electoral impact of Governor Romney's choice of Congressman Paul Ryan as his VP running mate. The masters of spin and parse will be out in force looking at whether the choice "alienates" single women, frightens senior citizens, or galvanizes the Tea Party into action. I am not going to get into that . . . much.

In terms of intellectual firepower, and track record of accomplishments in the private and public sector this presidential ticket, regardless of party, is the best one in decades and arguably ever. This is a serious ticket. Voters will have before them a stark choice in November. On the one hand, the Democratic ticket consists of a failed, truth-avoiding, and corrupt incumbent President running with Joe Biden, one of the dopiest and least interesting hack politicians of our time. The GOP ticket consists of a successful job- and wealth-creating businessman and governor running with the single smartest and most competent Congressman on the Hill, the one man in the whole Congress who knows how a federal budget is put together and the impact it has on the country. For me, there is no dilemma in making my choice.

The Democrats got nothin'. So they will double down on the sort of vicious assault on truth that we have seen over the past few weeks. The Democrat lie Gatling is already beginning to fire away: Ryan favors throwing the elderly off a cliff; he favors a federal budget to make the rich richer. More will come. Ryan can expect to have the most minute details of his life put out in public and subject to ridicule. The President who refuses to divulge the most basic information of his own life, will spare no expense in having his minions dig up anything and everything that can be used or distorted. It will be disgusting and infuriating.

I hope that Ryan will give as good as he gets while sticking to the truth and coming back again and again to the failed Obama-Biden record, and the basic choice now facing us: do we want to continue marching down the road to stagnation, dependency, poverty, and a government-run society, or do we get back to the basics that have made America great. There should be no problem in making that choice, except that we have been busy developing a society of half-educated college graduates and cynics with no basic understanding of the economy or the world. We have people more and more removed from the process of wealth production and further and further into wealth consumption. That will be the challenge facing the Republicans and the future of America, to wit, to tap into what I believe is a still strong American ethos of work, saving, and investment, to make it clear that we do not have to become Greece.

The Elitist New Yorker's View of Paul Ryan

"After spending weeks looking into Ryan’s history for The New Yorker, visiting his home town, and interviewing him twice, I am genuinely surprised that Romney chose him. First, let’s tally the risks of a Ryan pick.
For one thing, Ryan has no significant private-sector experience. Besides summer jobs working at McDonald’s or at his family’s construction company, or waiting tables as a young Washington staffer, Ryan has none of the business-world experience Romney frequently touts as essential for governing. In the run-up to his first campaign for Congress, in 1998, that gap was enough of a concern for Ryan that he briefly became a “marketing consultant” at the family business, an obvious bit of résumé puffing."
Compared to the present White House occupants experience at being a community agitator and part time State and US Senator, Ryan’s private sector experience seems adequate.
"But Ryan’s Washington experience is also light, at least for a potential President—which, after all, is the main job description of a Vice-President. Ryan has worked as a think-tank staffer and Congressman, but he’s never been in charge of a large organization, and he has little experience with foreign policy. Given how Sarah Palin was criticized for her lack of such experience, I’m surprised that Romney would pick someone whose ability to immediately step into the top job is open to question."
Really? Ryan has more political experience and knowledge compared to Obama’s 2 year Senate sleeper. Obama hardly worked, voted present and started campaigning for president, instead of representing the people of Illinois. Paul Ryan has 14 years in Congress and chairs the House Budget Committee. Obama, multiple years of voting present! Ryan got his budget passed. Obama, his own party gave him no votes.
And what foreign policy experience did Dear Leader possess when elected? Maybe soaking in a little History Channel in between bong hits at Bill Ayers pad?

I bet we won’t find out that Ryan's friends were busted for soliciting prostitutes in a prostitution ring. I bet we don't find Ryan attended a racist church or embraced a racist preacher . I bet we won't find out that Ryan started his political career in the living room of a terrorist or had any felons helping him obtain a home he couldn't afford.
But that won't matter....he's going to push granny off a cliff.

Mitt Romney: You Can Win This Election

From one of my favorites - Fuzzy Slippers

Fact 1: 0 is two seconds away from a full-on, total and complete meltdown. He’s someone who craves, thrives on, gets fuel from adoring masses. Those adoring masses have shrunk. A lot. They’re worried they can’t even fill the stadium for his acceptance speech, for goodness’ sake. He gets second billing to clown shows or something. This isn’t new; I remember when he dashed into Massachusetts to “save” Croakley from Scott Brown (didn’t happen, of course), and they couldn’t even fill a crap-sized auditorium at Northeastern University. They were having trouble giving out free tee-shirts. Sad.
And nothing has improved since then. 0 has turned into exactly what the “youth vote” hate: a cynical politician dedicated to cronyism and the DC status quo . . . oh, blahdy blah, we know 0 is, easily, the worst president in my lifetime, and arguably, the worst we’ve ever had.
He knows it, too. He probably knows that four years into his leadership, Hitler still had the German people in his thrall. So 0′s dying to get out there with his real message, the one he truly, to his heart of hearts, soul of souls believes is the right message: that at some point you’ve made enough money, that it really is better for everyone if the wealth is spread around, that quite frankly, you didn’t build that. He believes all this to the core of his commie being. And he’s dying to tell us; he’s an ideologue, after all. Give him his wish, his Howard Dean “scream.” He’s on the edge. A little push will shove him right into full-blown commie mode. Give him his chance to make the case that he really wants to make: that America is evil, that capitalism is the bane of the world, that . . . oh, what the hell ever. Let him tell America what he believes, let him tell America who he is. Just push that button, he’ll melt down. It’ll be funny. And you’ll win.
Fact 2: 0′s record sucks.

Biden is Up For the Challenge


Friday, August 10, 2012

On Making the Case Against Reelection:

"In 1988, Michael Dukakis famously said, 'This election is not about ideology; it’s about competence.' He lost. If Republicans want to win, Obama’s deeply revealing, teleprompter-free you-didn’t-build-that confession of faith needs to be hung around his neck until Election Day. The third consecutive summer-of-recovery-that-never-came is attributable not just to Obama being in over his head but, even more important, to what’s in his head: a government-centered vision of the economy and society, and the policies that flow from it."  
"Four years of that and this is what you get."
"Make the case and you win the White House." — Charles Krauthammer

Repeat this to Yourself: There is No Such Thing as Voter Fraud


Despite decades ripe with history of stolen elections at the local, state and national levels, a often used strategy and tool for retaining power by the democrat party is really non-existent, a myth, propaganda and just a figment of your imagination....... 

The Brennan Center for Justice at NYU School of Law claims to have carefully examined past allegations of voter fraud to get at the truth behind the claims:

Allegations of election-related fraud make for enticing press. Many Americans remember vivid stories of voting improprieties in Chicagoland, or the suspiciously sudden appearance of LBJ’s alphabetized ballot box in Texas, or Governor Earl Long’s quip: “When I die, I want to be buried in Louisiana, so I can stay active in politics.”  Voter fraud, in particular, has the feel of a bank heist caper: roundly condemned but technically fascinating, and sufficiently lurid to grab and hold headlines.
Perhaps because these stories are dramatic, voter fraud makes a popular scapegoat. In the aftermath of a close election, losing candidates are often quick to blame voter fraud for the results. Legislators cite voter fraud as justification for various new restrictions on the exercise of the franchise. And pundits trot out the same few anecdotes time and again as proof that a wave of fraud is imminent.
Allegations of widespread voter fraud, however, often prove greatly exaggerated. It is easy to grab headlines with a lurid claim (“Tens of thousands may be voting illegally!”); the follow-up — when any exists — is not usually deemed newsworthy. Yet on closer examination, many of the claims of voter fraud amount to a great deal of smoke without much fire. The allegations simply do not pan out.
So remember, when you read stories like registration documents sent to cats and dead people, or 177 people have been convicted -- not just accused, but convicted -- of voting fraudulently in the Minnesota Senate race that was openly targeted by democrats to install an inexperienced useful idiot, it's all just the over imagination of the small minded who probably ate to much chicken or poisoned themselves with the fumes from their gun cleaning fluids.

There is no voter fraud. They tell us so.

Mussolini would be proud of todays Democrats

"It is time for plain speaking: true to its Leftist, "progressive" nature, the Democrat party is the American proto-fascist party, pure and simple, on this as on most every other public matter. The beating heart of Totalism in all its forms is power and control over others. This has become the raison d'etre of the Democrat party." - Donald Sensing

The woman who made your WiFi work.

by Diogenes-

Hedy Lamarr was an Austrian-born American actress. Max Reinhardt called her the “most beautiful woman in Europe” due to her “strikingly dark exotic looks”.

Mathematically talented, Lamarr came up with an early technique for spread spectrum communications and frequency hopping, necessary for wireless communication from the pre-computer age to the present day.

The international beauty, along with co-inventor composer George Anthiel, developed a "Secret Communications System" to help combat the Nazis in World War II. By manipulating radio frequencies at irregular intervals between transmission and reception, the invention formed an unbreakable code to prevent classified messages from being intercepted by enemy personnel.

Lamarr and Anthiel received a secure secret patent in 1941, but the enormous significance of their invention was not realized until decades later. It was first implemented on naval ships during the Cuban Missile Crisis and subsequently emerged in numerous military applications. But most importantly, the "spread spectrum" technology that Lamarr helped to invent would galvanize the digital communications boom, forming the technical backbone that makes cellular phones, fax machines and other wireless operations possible.
