Sorry OWSers. Even the Democrat National Convention Does Not Want You. (Maybe)

Posted by NosferatusCoffin | October 28th, 2011

Well, here is something that should probably be filed under Friday Fun. But I would prefer not to pollute that barely-famous section with the likes of OWSers.

For all of the DNC and Obama wedding ceremonies and cork popping when it comes to politically and ideologically copulating with the OWSers (which some of them helped organize, partially with your tax money), they still will revert to the status quo.

That is, the status quo when it comes to the unwashed, Starbucks drinking, talking-points reading loons interfering with the Magic: The Gathering ceremony that will be the 2012 Democrat National Convention in Charlotte, NC.

From the Charlotte Observer:

To prepare for the Democratic National Convention, the city of Charlotte is considering an ordinance that would prohibit camping on all city property, which could stifle the ongoing Occupy Charlotte protest.

In addition, the ordinance would prohibit the possession of “noxious” substances, along with items such as pipes, chains or padlocks if their intended use would be to block a street, sidewalk or building entrance.

While the DNC usually does an FDR Detention Camp sweep of the homeless and others they find undesirable in the days and weeks leading up to their convention, with the OWSers, it seems like that local officials are poking about for a “solution”. Read, appeasment with their peasant class.

Mayor Anthony Foxx, a Democrat, said he was asking the city attorney’s office for an analysis on whether the city could legally evict the Occupy Charlotte protesters with an ordinance passed after they began camping.

“I don’t have a legal answer to that question yet,” Foxx said.

For the DNC, Foxx said it’s important to observe First Amendment rights, but his primary concern is that “the public health and safety be placed at a premium.”

Walton said the draft ordinance was just written, and city staff hasn’t reviewed it yet. A copy of the ordinance was released Thursday after being requested by the Observer.

Walton said it is too early to speculate on whether the Occupy Charlotte protesters would be grandfathered in.

Maybe Tom Cruise should put down the L. Hubbard books and start rehearsing for a revisit of “Born on the 4th of July”. After all, Hollywood, just like the Democrats can do no more than recycle their own ideas nowadays.

So Much For Arab Spring, Look Out For Sharia Winter

Posted by NosferatusCoffin | October 23rd, 2011

Not that anyone who has been paying any attention to the whole deadly circus in the Middle East is surprised by any of this, but it does belie the administration’s and media’s pathetic attempts to portray this as anything but a Sharia Domino Theory.

From NewsMax:

And [Abdul-Jalil] he laid out a vision for the post-Gadhafi future with an Islamist tint, saying Islamic Sharia law would be the “basic source” of legislation and existing laws that contradict the teachings of Islam would be nullified. In a gesture that showed his own piety, he urged Libyans not to express their joy by firing guns in the air, but rather to chant “Allahu Akbar,” or God is Great. He then stepped aside from the podium and knelt to offer a brief prayer of thanks.

As far as Gadhafi’s death is concerned, little was revealed. (though we have seen this movie before)

Libya’s transitional leader declared his country’s liberation Sunday after an 8-month civil war and set out plans for the future with an Islamist tone. The announcement was clouded, however, by international pressure to explain how ousted dictator Moammar Gadhafi had been captured alive days earlier, then ended up dead from a gunshot to his head shortly afterward.

Gadhafi’s death in circumstances that are still unclear, and the gruesome spectacle of his body laid out as a trophy in a commercial freezer and on public view, are testing the new Libyan leaders’ commitment to the rule of law. Even at the ceremony to declare liberation, a couple speakers in positions of authority essentially said Gadhafi got what he deserved.

Obama, of course, was pleased as punch:

President Barack Obama congratulated Libyans on the declaration.

“After four decades of brutal dictatorship and eight months of deadly conflict, the Libyan people can now celebrate their freedom and the beginning of a new era of promise,” he said.

Indeed. Public stonings of raped girls, dissidents beheaded and re-upping of Libya as a terrorist funding and participating state is right on schedule. Truly a “promising new era”.

With elections in Tunsia today and elections coming up in Egypt shortly, the big question will be who can hold a more honest election? They or the Democrat party in the United States? My bets are on the former.

ObamaCare Costs Finally Being Admitted: Sebelius Admits “No viable path” For CLASS Act

Posted by NosferatusCoffin | October 14th, 2011

As more and more of ObamaCare’s costs and programs come to light, reality is setting in, even among it’s most ardent supporters, that it is unsustainable.

From the Chairman Ryan’s House website:

WASHINGTON – Today, House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan of Wisconsin issued the following statement regarding the Obama Administration’s decision to discontinue a key component of its health-care law:

“To hide the true cost of their health-care overhaul, the leaders of the Democratic party loaded it with gimmicks and double-counting. One of the most egregious of these gimmicks involved the CLASS Act, a new long-term care program that was scored as an offset against the ten-year, trillion-dollar cost of the Democrats new law. Independent health care experts warned that the CLASS Act program would turn into a classic ‘insurance death spiral.’ Not only would the short-term savings fail to materialize, but the long-term costs would prove catastrophically high. Even Democratic Senator Kent Conrad called the program ‘A Ponzi scheme Bernie Madoff would have been proud of.’

“Today, the Obama Administration finally surrendered to reality: Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius has informed Congressional leaders that she ‘does not see a viable path forward for CLASS implementation at this time.’ The smoke and mirrors that the Democrats employed to sell their health care overhaul are finally falling away, one broken promise at a time. When all of these gimmicks are stripped out, the new law would add hundreds of billions of dollars in red ink over the next decade, as health-care costs send the debt spiraling out of control. Now it is time for Congress to do the responsible thing: Repeal the disastrous new law and replace it with true, patient-centered reforms.”

For more information:

Expect a lot more of these “paths” to nowhere as we get closer and closer to both the 2012 election and the 2014 deadlines of full implementation of ObamaCare.

GOP Candidate Bill Randall Campaign Sign Defaced With “KKK” Scrawling

Posted by NosferatusCoffin | October 11th, 2011

Well, while hardly unexpected, it is little early for the Dems to be showing their true colors (pun intended).

GOP Candidate Bill Randall, who is running for the House in North Carolina against incumbent Brad Miller, had a campaign sign of his defaced with a scrawling of “KKK”, as well as having his image defaced with a devil’s moustache and goatee.


Incidentally, Randall and Miller ran against each other in 2010 and Randall came closer than any other GOP candidate had to winning the district since 1996. With the GOP capturing the NC House and with redisticting making Miller much more vulnerable then before, maybe this was just a cry for help by the defacer.
