Joe 'The Bag Man' Biden (2nd in Line)
"I would tell members of my family, and I have, I wouldn't go anywhere in confined places now. It's not that it's going to Mexico, it's you're in a confined aircraft when one person sneezes it goes all the way through the aircraft. That's me. I would not be, at this point, if they had another way of transportation suggesting they ride the subway...If you're out in the middle of a field and someone sneezes that's one thing. If your in a closed aircraft or a closed container or closed care or closed classroom it's a different thing."
**Joe's been alive long enough to be familiar with the WWII saying: "Loose lips sink ships." Well in our time there's a new saying: "Joe Biden's stupid-assed, fantasy land, creative epidemiology theory, loose lips sink transportation industries...and scares parents into keeping their kids out of school."
Oh, and I would say his idiotic comments could start a panic but no one in their right mind takes this windbag (one of the many types of 'bags' Biden is associated with) seriously...Plus he was beat to the panic-mongering by the media.**
"I dont' know whether it is better to have freedom or to have no freedom. With too much freedom...it can get very chaotic, could end up like in Hong Kong or like Taiwan...I'm gradually beginning to feel that we Chinese need to be controlled."
**Nice. If this statement is true it doesn't say much for the Chinese...In fact, it sounds outright racist to me. Can you imagine how an American who made such a statement about the 'incivility' of the Chinese people would be treated? It wouldn't be pretty.
It's humorous to listen to morons like Chan complain about how "chaotic" too much freedom can be. Historically, free nations haven't been nearly as "chaotic" as those who aren't free; especially considering the chaos we saw in the last century at the hands of countries who denied freedom: Germany, Soviet Union, China, Imperial Japan, etc...Seems to me these unfree nations caused a lot more chaos than those who were free.
I'm not Chinese and Chan may be right, but if he is it would be a repudiation of history...Not that I'd expect an idiot who 'pretends to be other people for a living' to have any knowledge of history.**
“You know, I thought it was one of Chavez’s books...I was going to give him one of mine.”
- Comment Obama made after receiving a gift from Hugo Chaves (Venezuelan communist dictator) - 'Open Veins of Latin America: Five Centuries of the Pillage of a Continent,' by Eduardo Galeano.
**This book is a Leftist Latin American boo-hoo'er about how poorly the U.S. has taken advantage of South America...I must give Chavez kudos for getting right to the point and not holding back any punches; not that he has to worry about our wussified president throwing any punches.
Incredibly, I have a feeling Barack is going to greatly enjoy the book, and to a large degree believe it is true...He's ripped on the U.S. while in Europe, so I'm sure after reading this book he'll find it in himself to rip the U.S. on his next trip to South America, too.
As far as Obama giving Chavez one of his books, I think I know which paragraph Chavez is going to enjoy most:"To avoid being mistaken for a sellout, I chose my friends carefully. The more politically active black students. The foreign students. The Chicanos. The Marxist professors and structural feminists and punk-rock performance poets."(from 'Dreams of My Father')...Chavez is such a megalomaniacal nut I bet he'll believe he can be Barack's newest 'Marxist professor.' He may be right!**
"Let's be very honest about what this is about. This is not about bashing Democrats. It's not about taxes. They have no idea what the Boston Tea party was about. They don't know their history at all. It's about hating a black man in the White House...This is racism straight up and is nothing but a bunch of teabagging rednecks. There is no way around that."
- Comment regarding the American citizens who participated in the tax-day tea-parties.
**I thought if we elected Barack Obama the Left was going to stop whining about racism? Nah...Now they have a front man to use as their race-baiting poster boy.
The tea-parties weren't about race, and they weren't exclusively about taxes (though I wouldn't expect Liberals to understand this)...The tea-parties were about dissatisfaction with the government; dissatisfaction with Democrats and Republicans.
The federal government is in the process of creating a nanny-state and many Americans have long-ago stopped needing a mommy. These Americans are sickened by the government and will be party to many more tea-parties and protests until the government gets under control: These people are Conservatives. Call them "rednecks" if you will, but they are adults...Unfortunately, we have another large portion of citizens who want nothing more than to be coddled by the government: These people are Liberals. They call me a "redneck," and I call them socialist children; children who refuse to grow up and take care of themselves who need the government to act as their mommy.
The children have control for now. Hopefully the adults can soon regain control of the insane 'ass'ylum (misspelling intentional).**
"There's a new CEO and new chairman of the board (at General Motors)...The government will play an active role as with Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and other institutions with a major investment from taxpayers."
**Uhhhhh...Heaven help us if the government plays as active a role in directing GM as it has with Fannie, Freddie and "other institution with a major investment from taxpayers."
Bankruptcy is a much better long-term option for everyone involved...Well, except for the Democrat appointed leadership which will acquire millions on the backs of this failing company, of course. IE: Franklin Raines, Jaime Gorelic, etc.**
"We are bringing to bear a number of our assets...to resolve the hostage situation and bring the pirates to justice."
**Thankfully, the captain has been saved, and at least a few pirates killed. I'm more than a little happy to see Obama gave the okay to a plan to save this poor man...But I have a question:
Who is Hillary Clinton to pass judgment on these pirates? Maybe they have some legitimate complaints. Maybe they are misunderstood. Maybe they are victims. Maybe they’ve been wronged in the past by the "arrogant," "dismissive," imperfect America!
Ouch! I think I pulled a groin pretending to be a Liberal…At least I hope it’s just a groin.**
"These acts of piracy off of Somalia's coastline may seem surreal, but they are all too real and a thorough debate is long overdue...I plan to hold hearings to further examine the growing threat of piracy and all the policy options that need to be on the table.**
**WOW! John Kerry wants to have Senate hearings...I bet the pirates are really scared now.
They were probably wetting themselves at the thought of 'Talker-in-Chief' Obama wanting to have a sit-down with them to explain why they shouldn't take hostages, even though the U.S. has mistreated pirates for far too long, but the thought of Senate hearings must really shake them up...I can only think of one thing that would scare the pirates (and Iran, North Korea, Al Qaeda, etc., etc., etc.) more:
"Maybe you can get a U.N. resolution while you're at it." - Sean Hannity**
"Saving the New York Times now ranks with saving Darfur as a high-minded cause."
**The New York Times has such poor subscription and advertising interest that it's on the verge of going out of business...Which equals the genocide in Darfur, Sudan. WOW!!
"UN officials estimate over 400,000 people have lost their lives and some 2 million more have been driven from their homes." 'However, the UN disclosed...that it might have underestimated the Darfur death toll by nearly 50 percent.'
400,000 dead and 2,000,000 displaced individuals = The New York Times going out of business...By my calculus this means the almost 2.5 million Darfur nomads listed above were pretty much useless; not worth worrying about. If they equal the loss of the NY Times there's no other way I can put it.
Either that or Mr. Keller made a completely ridiculous claim, which is the obvious case...I'm not going to hold my breath waiting for him to apologise for such a senseless correlation between his Liberal propaganda rag and the death of innocent human beings, however.**

THIS DAY IN HISTORY
1994 - Physicists at the U.S. Department of Energy's Fermin National Accelerator Laboratory discovered the subatomic particle called the top quark.
It’s a slow day, so why not.
