We have been silent for a long time because there hasn’t really been anything of a game-changing nature for awhile. We have believed, at least since March, that SANE people would be voting Democrats out and Republicans/Conservatives in. And barring massive election fraud (difficult even for the most immoral of Democrats given the likely size and scale of the sweep), we believe this will be played out in an astonishing way come November.
We just wanted tonight to weigh in on the Ground Zero Mosque / Lunatic Pastor controversey.
There is an 800 pound gorilla in the room that few seem willing to talk about, which is this: the lie that most Muslims are peaceful, just like everyone else. IF THIS WERE TRUE, then there would be no need for people from The Messiah to the Pope to weigh in on the doings of a sad little preacher who wants to burn a few books as a protest to the GZM.
But it is our considered belief that most Muslims in the world are not peaceful. Like liberals, they are vile human beings, little better than dogs. They rage at the mere possibility of a preacher doing this burning of the Quran. And how do they rage? By desecrating other people’s precious objects, e.g., burning the American flag.
But even worse – even worse – is the absolute silence by the Muslim community in America with respect to the hot-heads around the world. We have not heard one voice – not one – from the Muslim community condemning other Muslims and telling them to knock it off. Worse, we heard the GZM imam say, we need to be careful of the “radical” Muslims.
This is madness. There should be no effort by non-Muslims at comity with Muslims until they start issuing fatwas against their own hot-heads and killers. When they start doing that, only then can they demand, with any kind of moral legitimacy, that the crazy preacher not burn their precious Quran. But will they do that?
We’re not holding our breath.
Well, it’s been more than a month again…
Not much has changed. As anyone with an ounce of sense knew, the Messiah hasn’t been able to command the oil from the Gulf well to stop. Some God the Messiah turned out to be. What’s that? He never claimed to be a God? Could have fooled us…
In our last post we said that the President acted Presidential – not scapegoating BP. We spoke to soon. True to form, the President wants to know who’s “ass to kick.” Way to get mad, Mr. President. Way to show you’ve got emotion. Like emotion is what matters here.
While we acknowledge that as an engineering problem, stopping the leak may be extremely difficult, we believe it remains an engineering problem – and not a political one; except in this: What would have happened if we didn’t have a ban on close-to-shore, shallow drilling? What if the oil companies didn’t have to put down shafts where they are neraly inaccessible?
We lay the location of the drilling platform at the feet of the environmentalist whack-jobs who wouldn’t know a scientific fact from their horoscope if their lives depended on it.
Mr. President… why don’t you step down, and let someone with a brain – perhaps Lady Gaga – take over. At least she’s a tad entertaining. What’ve you got? Nothing. Squat. Zilch.
Time for you to go, Mr. Prez.
We’ve been quiet here for quite some time. Our last post was more than a month ago.
The reason is simple. We believe that the the cast has hardened. And what we are seeing is more and more heat and less and less light. We find it boring, and we have other things to do.
We know how we are voting.
While everyone here at O-t-c is registered as Independent, we will be voting nearly straight Republican line, unless we believe that an Independent who is truly conservative has a real chance of winning. We would love nothing better than to have conservative Independents win. But they have a job to do: they have to make a very strong showing in the polls. If they can’t do that, then they haven’t closed the deal with the voters, and we’re hanged if we’re going to let Democrats have another chance to control things without a fight.
We want Democrats – and liberals everywhere – to have sleepless nights. We want them to worry about life. We have gone, ad nauseum, into the reasons why. Those reasons have neither changed, nor do they need any updating.
As a matter of fairness (which the Left knows nothing about): We watched much of Obama’s news conference yesterday regarding the disaster south of Louisiana in the Gulf. We believe he acquitted himself well during this conference. We say to him this: what a shame. What a shame that you didn’t act like this with respect to the banking and credit crisis. What a shame you didn’t act like this with respect to the health insurance deformations you’ve inflicted on this country. In THIS disaster you seem to be doing some of the right things; and you haven’t demonized BP. Why couldn’t you do that during the fiscal disasters of last year? Why couldn’t you do that when you were nationalizing automobile companies?
If you had been Presidential with the other problems this country faced and faces, we would have felt no need to start Off-the-cliff.com in the first place!
What a shame, Mr. President. A dirty rotten shame.
You finally reared your ugly head in today’s NYT in an op-ed saying that despite all the controversy surrounding the climate change boondoggles, you are confident that global warming is real.
Maybe it is; maybe it isn’t. But we have questions, and these questions demand serious answers. And since you won’t answer them, we think you can go find an unfrozen lake in the Arctic circle and jump in it. But before we get to our questions, let us say this.
We believe you are not the right person to be speaking about this. You have too much money on the line to be representing yourself as a dispassionate citizen. You want Americans to transfer hundreds of billions of dollars to projects that may or may not have any utility to the American people. You want us to do this on your say-so. You say, “Don’t listen to me; listen to the scientists.” But we have scientists who stifle research; alter data; call skeptics (who they should welcome) names akin to those who would deny the holocaust. There are huge holes in the trust that Americans have toward you and toward “climate scientists” (so-called) generally.
Take all your money out of the game, Mr. Gore. Have all your money invested in things that don’t depend on policy changes resulting from global warming legislation. What’s that? There are no investments that would not be affected? Our point exactly. You are setting up the game so that YOU win. We have no faith that you give a damn about America generally.
Now to our questions:
1 – What is the ideal temperature of the Earth. How do we know when it’s running a fever?
2 – We have read reports of other planets in the solar system heating up over the past few years. Is this the result of George W. Bush refusing to sign the stupid Kyoto Accords?
3 – Why is it that there are no global warming changes that the average person can go see near him or her? Why are they always in far-off places that require a lot of money and “great sophistication” (like yours?) to discern?
4 – Some of us at Off-the-cliff.com live near American coast lines. We have not seen any noticeable rising of sea levels. We are not realizing our fondest dreams of our inland homes becoming beach front property. Can you tell us when we may see this glorious day? Imagine – the wonder of our mediocre property values skyrocketing because of global warming. This would make us giddy if we could believe it.
5 – How do you justify the demonization of skeptics? Are skeptics not allowed in this area of scientific endeavor? Is this a whole new way of doing science?
6 – Where are the PRECISE predictions that we can use to test these theories of yours? Give us something we can hang our hats on. You said there’d be more hurricanes and that they’d be fiercer because of global warming. Well – where the hell are they? We fully expect there to be crests and troughs in the patterns of hurricane development. But by your contention, every year should be seeing more of them and they should all be like Hurricane Katrina or Andrew. Where the heck are they?
7 – One would expect that as the “world heats up” that the extreme low would get warmer and the extreme high would also get hotter. But this hasn’t happened. Can you explain why?
8 – Supposedly the polar bears are endangered, but there are reliable reports that there are more of them now than in the recent past. Have they learned to swim since there is no longer any ice for them to walk on?
9 – Can you give us one good reason to consider you to be a trustworthy man? Why should we not look at you the same way we look at snake oil salesmen.
10 – Will you put up a bond for the value of your entire worth should the world not fall into a global warming black hole in the next 10 years? If you are wrong, will you agree to sit in a prison of our design for the rest of your life?
You are demanding that all of us (American taxpayers in particular) fund the global warming projects without building the necessary trust. You need to rethink your strategies, and get back to us.
Till then, we just say no.
We try to find good Democrats in Congress and there are very few. We also look for good Republicans in office, and while there seem to be few there as well, they are not the ones in power right now. And despite all the yahoos claiming that there is no difference between the Rs and the Ds, can anyone – anyone – imagine Boehner legislating the way that Pelosi does? Can anyone – anyone – imagine the Rs proposing legislation that looks even remotely like the socialist power grabs by the current Congress? We can’t. And anyone who thinks that the Rs and the Ds would create and propose similar legislation lives in a la-la land that should preclude them from voting.
So – the Messiah is calling for a “bipartisan” summit on health care tomorrow.
We call on the Rs to do the following: IF the Messiah turns out to be engaging in pure theater, help him with the drama. How? There would be nothing you could do as dramatic as to say mid-way through the performance, “Mr. President, this is pure theater. We will not help you sell America down the river. We’re outa here.” And then leave Blair House in full view of the American people. We fully believe that you would be cheered back home in ways that you haven’t heard in years! Oh – the lamestream media would hate you for it. But since it’s theater, you can play it for all it’s worth, and the lamestreamers wouldn’t know what to do. Should they cover you leaving? Should they act as if nothing happened? They’d be a bunch of confused nebobs and you could go home, look your constituents in the eye and say, “We stood up for America – for you!” And you’d mean it; and we’d know it; and we’d appreciate it.
So – Toyota is apologizing again. OK – that’s fine. And so far, to its credit, the Committee investigating this seems to be doing a reasonable job. But we want to see the same vigilance that is being mustered relative to Toyota be applied to the spending practices of Taxpayer Motors. We believe that all Taxpayer Motors cars are fiscally flawed from the jump, and that is true before a single piece of metal is laid out as part of the chassis. Where is the outrage that the secured investors at Taxpayer Motors were royally screwed by Obama? Why is there no outcry from the Ds? Again – can anyone imagine the Rs nationalizing a car company and screwing the secured investors? If you can, and if you believe what you imagine, then, again, your vote shouldn’t count since you obviously believe in the tooth fairy, perpetual motion and you think that Pelosi is an intelligent person.
So – it turns out that the Messiah is a liah. On Beck’s show yesterday, we saw Obama tell talking news heads that his ties to Acorn were ancient and superficial. Then Beck played video footage showing Obama swearing that he was practically blood brothers with this anti-American criminal so-called neighborhood organizing group. Liah liah pants on fiah. The Messiah is a liah. Thanks, Beck. We will be showing this video to anyone who comes to our homes.
