From Junior Varsity to Cancer in 6 Months

Posted by madjillmom on August 21, 2014

Remember when George Bush told us he wanted Bin Laden “dead or alive”. He was castigated as the “Cowboy” President, shooting first and asking questions later. Many of the media felt his statements had incited the terrorists. 

Fast forward to January, 2014. Obama uses a basketball analogy and called ISIS/ISIL a junior varsity team pretending to be professionals. They weren’t Kobe Bryant in Lakers jerseys, they were not of note. Perhaps this statement was a gauntlet throw down.

Fast forward again to yesterday. Obama says that ISIS/ISIL is a cancer that has no place in this century. Did ISIS/ISIL change in that time? Were they trying to tell “Cowboy” Obama that they are in the big league? I guess his mind was really on basketball yesterday, because immediately after that he went to play golf with a former NBA star. 

So now Obama says he understands the threat of this Army. But what is he going to do? He says we will act “alongside others”. He says the cancer must be stopped, not eliminated.

The New Thought Police

Posted by madjillmom on April 29, 2014

A 80 year-old NBA franchise owner, Donald Sterling, tells his young mistress (with 3 different aliases) some awful racist things during a phone conversation that was probably illegally taped. The man has a history of racism that evidently has been well known. This same man was to receive a NAACP Lifetime Achievement Award even with this known history. Evidently, you can buy an NAACP award. What this man told his “sweet young thing” was reprehensible. So now the NBA is suspending him for life, fining him $2.5 million, and is trying to force him to sell his franchise. The man is most certainly a racist. But he hasn’t broken the law in regard to his NBA franchise.  Is Charles Barkley now calling for an all-black NBA?

About a month ago, gay rights groups ran the CEO of Mozilla out of town and out of his job for giving a contribution to a group supporting traditional marriage. This man did nothing illegal, but evidently he couldn’t be left alone to run a company.

College campuses all over the nation scheme to make it hard for those with conservative thoughts to participate in the debate. College fees won’t fund conservative speakers, conservative newspapers are stolen and confiscated, conservative speakers are sent away or heckled. Rutgers is trying to push Condoleeza Rice out. Brandeis un-invited Hirsi Ali because of complaints about her stand on Islam.

The IRS decides after signals from Obama about the Citizens United Supreme Court decision that conservative tea-party groups are to suffer at the hands of a politicized behemoth government agency.

The thought police are here.
