Van Jones – The New Jesse Jackson

Posted by madjillmom on April 30, 2012

If I were Jesse Jackson or Al Sharpton, I would be looking over my shoulder to see Van Jones, the new guy on the block.  He is certainly up and coming.  His take-down from the Obama administration by Glenn Beck was an impetus to become the new black race spokesperson.  Jesse and Al must be wondering why the new, well spoken, handsome black guy is going to displace them soon.  Rainbow coalition, old and busted.  Van Jones, new hotness.  Color of Change is boycott central.  At least Van Jones doesn’t speak like a crazy preacher.

He is really radical packaged in an appealing package.  Kinda like PresBO.

Sandra Fluke, Entitlement Queen

Posted by madjillmom on March 12, 2012

Sandra Fluke started out as a game changer.  The Dems wanted to point out that the Republicans want all women to be barefoot and pregnant.  What a great spin on a trumped up story.  Poor law student, age 23, suffering to put pills in the nightstand.  Bad Catholics, bad Republicans, and most especially, Bad RUSH!!!

Then the news on the new heroine starts to trickle out.  She is a 30-year-old, women’s health activist. She is being handled/pimped out to the lefty press by a public relations group headed by Anita Dunn, one of Obama’s Mao loving White House appointees who had to resign when Glenn Beck brought her words to our attention.

During the same week this starts to come out, a young woman in Michigan is found to be collecting food stamps after receiving a lottery win of over $500,000.  Another welfare queen comes to the forefront.  The more we learn of both of these women, the more it stinks.

Then comes a phone call from PresBO, because he doesn’t want Sasha and Malia to get the idea that speaking out on something important to you is a bad thing.  He would much rather teach Sasha and Malia that they are owed contraception if they attend a prestigious law school.  Now, the Dems are sending robo-calls out lambasting Rush.

Sandra, contraception is readily available.  It has been for some time.  Maybe you don’t want to spend time at Planned Parenthood with the dregs of the neighborhood because you are special.  You are a grad student headed into a lucrative profession.  Buy your own contraceptives.

This story is destined to fade soon.  The facts do not play well to a public that just wants the government to stop  spending.  The President , the Dems and the MSM have misread this dog and pony show.  It will go away, because it is now hurting the Dems.

Expanding Our Moral Imaginations

Posted by madjillmom on January 13, 2011

I did not watch the Tuscon Memorial last night.  I heard snippets of Obama’s speech and then read over it online.  If Sarah Palin, who is not a public official, was late to condemn those trying to lay blame (as posited by a Dem on Fox News yesterday), then Pres. Obama was really late to do so.  Yes, he said some good things, some touching things.  He also finally sounded the undeniable truth that we shouldn’t jump to conclusions regarding this terrible incident, shouldn’t be eager to hijack the issue to our own benefit.  He seemed to go back to lecturing us all about our discourse and the need to strive to be better people.  I love to be lectured to, don’t you?  I would have been so much better if he had admitted  to cranking up the rhetoric himself.  I would have been impressed if he had admitted to being a sinner while extorting us all to be better.  I would have been even more impressed if he had done this before the polls came out that the public wasn’t buying the drumbeat of blaming the conservatives, Sarah Palin, Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh or the Tea Party members. I would have been even more impressed if he hadn’t called the media darling Sheriff Dupnik a few days ago and praised his handling of the situation.

The strangest phrase of the speech was requesting that we expand our moral imaginations.  What does this mean?  I know Obama is a smart man, but I have never heard of our moral imagination.  Morals are morals and imagination is imagination.  Seems that they do not really go together.  In fact, it seems that the murderer was expanding his moral imagination when he did this awful thing.  Is there a program available out there to help me expand my moral imagination?
