Obamacare is Unconstitutional!

Federal U.S. District Judge Roger Vinson has declared that the individual mandate in the health care bill is unconstitutional and that the mandate is unseverable from the rest of the law. This basically revokes the entire law!

Will this open up the door to forget repeal and go directly to replace?

UPDATE: 3:33pm

Judge Rules Health Care Law Is Unconstitutional
Judge Roger Vinson said as a result of the unconstitutionality of the "individual mandate" that requires people to buy insurance, the entire law must be thrown out.

"I must reluctantly conclude that Congress exceeded the bounds of its authority in passing the Act with the individual mandate. That is not to say, of course, that Congress is without power to address the problems and inequities in our health care system. The health care market is more than one sixth of the national economy, and without doubt Congress has the power to reform and regulate this market. That has not been disputed in this case. The principal dispute has been about how Congress chose to exercise that power here," Vinson wrote.

Kiss My Hamas Part VIII


Denial is not a river in Egypt, but it probably is an accurate description of how the White House is feeling right now.

The president really has to be regretting not supporting the Iranian uprising. If only he had and the Iranian government had fallen, this Egyptian uprising would be a welcomed example of another society of people freeing themselves from the shackles of despotism.

But now, since that did not happen, the thought of the Egyptian government is a horrible nightmare that provides an opportunity for Iran to install a Hamas style government. Can you imagine? The Egyptian army under the control of a Muslim Brotherhood inspired Hamas or Hezbollah?

So now, the president, who should have supported the people of Iran, but did not because he thought it would benefit his failed attempts to negotiate Iran away from their nuclear program, is now faced with supporting the popular uprising in Egypt, and moving the Middle East closer to a large scale war.

Israel cannot be sleeping comfortably tonight.

Chomsky is still a Chump!

How does this guy continue to be revered as some type of philosophical guru while speaking complete untruths in front of supposedly learned audiences? I've pointed out before how this guy appears to exist in some opposite upside down world universe.

Chomsky the Chump
And he's still at it!

Noam Chomsky lectures on nation’s problems
"The military budget is half of the deficit," Chomsky said. "The other half is the heavily privatized health care system. We would not have debt and might even have a surplus if we did not have (the health care system)."
I've heard him say this many times, including in the video below, and it is just simply not true, yet none of the brilliant know it all intellectuals call him on it. A little over half of annual spending by the government goes to defense, and what Noam calls health-care which he means medicare, and medicaid. Now, if half of your annual budget goes to health-care and defense, then how are you able to apportion those two line items to 100% of your debt? Unless you are cooking the books, all of your expenditures are proportionally responsible for your overage.
Chomsky also discussed terrorism and the post-Sept. 11 United States.
"Bush said terrorists committed crimes because they hate our freedoms," he said.
Contrary to this statement, Chomsky said that Muslims actually hate our policies, not our freedoms.
Chomsky said United States' policies actually benefit Jihadists.
Wrong again Noam! The Jihadists do hate us for our freedoms. Unless of course by policy you mean policies like educating our women. Policies like not requiring women to wear burkas. Policies like not incarcerating homosexuals. Policies like allowing people to listen to western music.
"The U.S. remains Bin Laden's only ally," he said.
Chomsky discussed the United States' support of dictatorships in Egypt, Tunisia, Georgia, Jordan and Colombia. He said this too falls under the "guiding principle."
Really? Last time I checked Columbia was a real democracy with a real freely elected president. Georgia too!
"The United States has a violent labor history," he said. "The rallying cry of the late 19th-century labor movement was, 'Those who work in mills should own them,'" he said.
Chomsky said this holds significance today, specifically with the automobile industry.
"Obama took over the auto industry, so the government owns it," he said. "The government is closing plants when they could turn them over to the workers and let them run it for profit."
Well, you get partial credit here Noam. The labor movement truly has been violent. Violent thugs who feel they deserve the property of people who took risks and became succesful. It's funny how labor only wants too take ownership of the successful businesses, which is precisely why, Noam, that the workers have not taken over those closed plants you claim they could run.
"Democrats today are what used to be moderate Republicans, and today's Republicans are so deep in the pockets of business, you have to have a magnifying glass to find them," he said.
Oh my god! Who lets him get away with such fantasies? Does he really believe a John F Kennedy, cut taxes and be strong on defense democrat would be tolerated in today's party?  The democratic party has moved so far left that communist principles and leaders are openly praised and adored.
"Social Security is actually in good shape, despite what you read," he said. "The rich want to get rid of Social Security, because it is based on the principles of compassion and solidarity, and (the spread of these principles) could be dangerous for the rich."
No Noam, it's because it's a ponzi scheme, and all ponzi schemes eventually implode. As soon as it's mathmatically impossible to expand the base of the pyramid to pay the few at the top, it collapses.
Students said they gained valuable insights from Chomsky's lecture.
God help us all!

Really? Can't they let the Tea Party Violence Thing Go?

No! afterall :
You never want a serious crisis to go to waste.
- Rahm Emanuel

After the anti-climactic attempt to smear the Tea Party where the the left shot it's load a little to soon in trying to paint Jared Laughner as an Afghan Vet and Tea Party activist, they do not want this effort to die too early of a death, less they be seen as the boy who cried wolf and ignored at the next opportunity, er um, I mean  national tragedy. And because, desperate times call for desperate measures.

Police Investigate Threatening Graffiti Targeting California Gov. Brown
Police are investigating graffiti messages found in Santa Ana threatening to kill California Gov. Jerry Brown.

Santa Ana police Cpl. Anthony Bertagna said officers were called to two different areas of the city Thursday where threatening messages were found. One message said, "We're gonna kill Gov. Brown 2/14/11." In the other, a vandal spray-painted in red, "27 more days 4 Brown" and included a swastika.
So what is the over under? Was this done by crafty Tea Party evildoers, confessing their plan like evil genius super bad guys in a '007' spy flick? or is this the work of another stupid militant gay democratic party volunteer?

Manufactured Violence
Remember the militant gay democratic party volunteer? The one that used a hammer to break the windows of the Democratic party headquarters in Colorado?

When the left commits violence its a lone wolf loon who is to blame. If a lone wolf loon on the other side does wrong, well then the entire opposition is violent and they should shut up and stop opposing socialism. There is nothing, no dirty trick, no ethical boundary, and no violent act that would stop Obama supporters from trying to shut down and marginalize the Tea Party.

Liberal Logic Lacks Lucidity

"People will no more advance their civility to a bear, than their money to a bankrupt."

Well that didn't take long!

As predicted on these very pages, the wails for civility and a more sober tone were never meant to apply to democrats. Of course to them, in their eyes, they are always civil and merely stating self evident truths. Right?

So in an attempt to incite Republican wrath or ire, Rep Steve Cohen (D-TN) gives us another glimpse into the innate inability to reason using logic or analogy.

Democratic Congressman Compares GOP Health Care Attacks to Nazi 'Lies'
So much for the new era of political civility.

Rep. Steve Cohen, D-Tenn., compared Republican attacks on the health care overhaul to Nazi propaganda advanced by Joseph Goebbels that led to the Holocaust.

Cohen, who is Jewish, made the remarks to a mostly empty chamber on Tuesday night as he argued against a Republican bill to repeal the health care law.

"They don't like the truth so they summarily dismiss it," Cohen said. "They say it's a government takeover of health care, a big lie just like (Nazi propagandist Joseph) Goebbels."

"You say it enough, you repeat the lie, you repeat the lie, you repeat the lie, and eventually, people believe it. Like blood libel. That's the same kind of thing," he said.
So let me get this straight? It's not OK for Sarah Palin to use the 'Blood Libel' analogy because it might offend people who were also persecuted by baseless lies, but it is OK to portray the assertions of your political opponents as being on par with the atrocities of the Holocost?
And in another stunning display of using circular arguments to bedazzle your opponents by stunning them with stupidity Rep Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) asserts that if health care is repealed people will die, and Neil Cavuto isn't falling for it as quickly as she would like.

Angry Olbermann - Keeping it Accusatorial

Angry people screaming angrily about the Tea Party's anger is where we now reside. And, there is nothing like spreading misconception and distortions to achieve a more civil tone in political discourse. The preplanned storyline and tactic for blaming the Tea Party for what ever the next national disaster was going to be went awry.  Several sources have already suggested that this story was written in advance a la JournoList, and like a prepared obituary for a famous person was ready to go and be launched at the necessary moment. The accusations and the unanimous chorus from state-run-media after the tragedy in Tuscon was so fast that one has to at least consider the plausibility of such a conspiracy.

But alas, it did not turn into the home run they were hoping for. The perpetrator was not the veteran from Afghanistan who was a Tea Party supporter, as was reported while victims were still being transported to the hospital (even on Fox News).  It was a Marxist leaning, pot smoking lefty who had been attending Rep. Giffords events since 2007. Before there was a Tea Party and before anyone outside of Alaska knew who Sarah Palin was.

Instead of keeping their powder dry, the state-run-media shot their load too soon.  It almost worked. It was such a great plan! Well, the media can't wait for another tragedy to try this tactic again, so the slam the Tea Party campaign must continue!

And who better then Gen. Keith Olbermann to lead the charge!

Olbermann Cherry Picks Poll to Bash Tea Party as Violent Threat to Elected Officials
Keith Olbermann on Monday cherry-picked a new poll to bash the Tea Party as a violent threat to elected officials.

As he discussed new findings in a Daily Kos/Public Policy Polling survey about who thinks violence against the current American government is justified, the "Countdown" host highlighted the Tea Party's number while conveniently ignoring demographic groups that responded at an equal or higher rate
In the on air broadcast Obermann goes onto say:
A new poll taken after the shooting showing only a handful of Americans, 5 percent or 6 percent, calling violence against the current U.S. government justified, but 13 percent of the Tea Party says it is.
And then the author Noel Sheppard points out
That's true, but as Mediaite's Tommy Christopher noted, the highest positive response to this question was 17 percent from folks aged 18-29.
"Other" under race scored at 14 percent while folks making less than $30,000/year pulled 13 percent. Also of note, under party affiliation, "Independent/Other" polled at 10 percent.

Some more interesting numbers from this poll were that Liberals polled at 7 percent, ahead of moderates and conservatives at 6 percent. This means Liberals not only polled higher than the rest of the country, but also higher than conservatives.
Beautiful, just beautiful.

The real irony here is that all this rhetoric took place on Martin Luther King day.  It is ironic because while it is true that Dr. King lead a non-violent effort to bring about justice and civil liberties he was being excoriated by the press for fomenting the violence being perpetrated by Bill Ayers and the Weather Underground, the Black Panthers,and other violent radicals.

Sounds familiar, doesn't it?

J Eric Fuller - Violent Lefty Loon

So once again, the left demonstrates it's penchant for violence. Amidst all the calls of curtailing speech, and changing the tone of the rhetoric they have not changed any plays in their playbook. As we knew all along the story line behind the howls on the left is really only intended to be observed by people who oppose them. They on the other hand will continue in their self righteous endeavors of limiting your freedom, redistributing wealth, and stagnating the economy; for your own good of course.

Man Shot in Tucson Rampage Is Arrested at a TV Taping
The man, J. Eric Fuller, 63, a military veteran who supports Ms. Giffords, was involuntarily committed for a 72-hour mental health evaluation, said Jason Ogan, a spokesman for the Pima County sheriff’s office.

The sheriff's office has forwarded charges against Mr. Fuller of threats and intimidation, as well as disorderly conduct, both misdemeanors, to the county attorney's office, Mr. Ogan said.

Mr. Fuller, who was shot in the left knee and back on Jan. 8, was among several victims, medical personnel and others who attended a special forum at St. Odilia Catholic Church hosted by Christiane Amanpour to be televised Sunday on ABC.

State Representative Terri Proud, a Republican, was sitting two rows behind Mr. Fuller. The topic of gun control came up in the forum, she said, and one of the speakers made a comment about a bill introduced recently in Arizona that would allow faculty members on college campuses with concealed weapons permits to carry guns.

Ms. Proud said she spoke up to clarify the bill’s language. Trent Humphries, the founder of the Tucson Tea Party, who was sitting one row behind her, rose to speak and suggested that discussion about gun legislation be postponed until after the funerals. He started to say that he had also been affected by the tragedy because a neighbor was a victim.

At that point, Ms. Proud said, Mr. Fuller blurted out to Mr. Humphries, “You’re dead.”
So clearly it was the Tea Party's fault. Once again inciting people to violence. Only, the violent keep turning out to be those in opposition to the ideals of the Tea Party. Violent opposition!

And if you're thinking "oh man, give the guy a break, he was shot just a few days ago", I would confess to subscribing to that very sentiment. However, this is not the first time.

Mr. Fuller was also involved in a confrontation on Jan. 8, shortly before the attack on Ms. Giffords, which occurred at an event she held for her constituents outside a Safeway supermarket. He said in a long interview last week with The New York Times that he had argued there with a man he described as a former Marine after a heated discussion over politics. Gabriel Zimmerman, an aide to Ms. Giffords, separated the two.

Mr. Zimmerman was killed in the attack later that morning.

Mr. Fuller spoke dismissively of Republicans during the interview. “They appeal to simple-minded rednecks,” he said.
Leading by example in the tenor and tone of civil discourse is not part of the democratic plan.

L.A. Times: Wrong again

The conversation about Sarah Palin's official post-Arizona statement: She really messed this one up

In using "blood libel," a term rooted in anti-Semitism, however, she created a bigger mess for herself. Quoting from James Oliphant's Los Angeles Times article, Sarah Palin's charge of 'blood libel' spurs outcry from Jewish leaders
"Instead of dialing down the rhetoric at this difficult moment, Sarah Palin chose to accuse others trying to sort out the meaning of this tragedy of somehow engaging in a 'blood libel' against her and others," said David Harris, president of the National Democratic Jewish Council, in a statement. "This is of course a particularly heinous term for American Jews, given that the repeated fiction of blood libels are directly responsible for the murder of so many Jews across centuries -- and given that blood libels are so directly intertwined with deeply ingrained anti-Semitism around the globe, even today."
Even conservative columnist Jonah Goldberg is with us on this one. Blogging for NRO, he said:
"I should have said this a few days ago, when my friend Glenn Reynolds introduced the term to this debate. But I think that the use of this particular term in this context isn't ideal. Historically, the term is almost invariably used to describe anti-Semitic myths about how Jews use blood -- usually from children -- in their rituals. I agree entirely with Glenn’s, and now Palin"s, larger point. But I’m not sure either of them intended to redefine the phrase, or that they should have."
 um....not exactly.  I think Rabbi Shmuley Boteach got it right.

Sarah Palin Is Right About 'Blood Libel'
 Murder is humanity's most severe sin, and it is trivialized when an innocent party is accused of the crime—especially when that party is a collective too numerous to be defended individually. If Jews have learned anything in their long history, it is that a false indictment of murder against any group threatens every group. As Martin Luther King Jr. wrote in his Letter from Birmingham Jail, "Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere." Indeed, the belief that the concept of blood libel applies only to Jews is itself a form of reverse discrimination that should be dismissed.
 The L.A. Times is leading the way in the replacement for Bush/Cheney/Haliburton dementia, Sara Palin obsession.

The Audacity of Hate

Gordon Gekko told us that "Greed is Good"

Barack Obama has shown us that "Hate Works".

Last night in Tucson, Barck Obama gave a speech hearkening back to the tenor of his 2008 campaign. Just like that campaign, he spoke of lofty ideals that he has no intention of pursuing.

In his 2008 Presidential campaign, Barack talked about being a 'post-partisan' president and about reaching across the isle. Despite all the evidence given by his voting record, this was received as a truth that would gladly change Washington. The reality was that the country was victimized by a Health Care bill that was rammed through congress despite bipartisan opposition, and that the country did not want, and rejected in the 2010 mid-term elections.

I have said on these pages before that Barack Obama was not elected because of any particular vision he espoused. He was  elected because for no other reason than 8 years of 'hate Bush' rhetoric paid off.

"Hate Works"

The presidents words last night were nothing more than another insult to one's intellect by trying to position himself as someone we know he is not.
But at a time when our discourse has become so sharply polarized - at a time when we are far too eager to lay the blame for all that ails the world at the feet of those who think differently than we do - it's important for us to pause for a moment and make sure that we are talking with each other in a way that heals, not a way that wounds.
Just like his claims for bipartisan relations with Congress, which amounted to 'sit down, shut up, and vote like I tell you; or you are an obstructionist!", this veiled platitude means nothing more than 'talking with each other in a way that heals means sit down, shut up, and vote the way I tell you to or you are speaking in a way that wounds"

The left's move to lay the blame for the tragedy that was brought by an individual divorced of reality and living on his own planet, was nothing more than an attempt to deny the people who oppose them the very weapon that has served them so well.

In the world of politics, there is no high ground to take. It's trench warfare. It always has been, and it will always be.

Symbolic to Ironic: Sarah Palin and Hillary Clinton Agree

It is ironic that Rep Gabriel Giffords read the first Amendment from the well of the House of Representatives in a historic and symbolic reading of the constitution in it's entirety, and that now her purported allies want to pass laws to curtail that very right guaranteed by the Constitution.

Rep Robert Brady has said that he will draft legislation to do just that.
In an interview on CNN, Robert Brady (D-Penn) said he wants to make it a federal crime to use threatening language or symbols against federal officials.
 There are already so many laws providing special protections to members of congress, this particular law would do nothing but provide incumbents a cudgel to any rival that might dare to challenge. After all, what is 'threatening language or symbols'? It's up for interpretation I guess.

Jared Loughner is a lefty loon.

While information is beginning to uncover who Jared Loughner is, the state-run-media outlets continue to blame Sarah Palin and the Tea Party. Incredible. Left wing zealot Paul Krugman was part of the choir bemoaning the 'Climate of Hate'. At first blush, after reading the title you would have to be forgiven for momentarily thinking that the piece might be about the Bush years and the dementia, outrage and hate that surrounded the Bush / Haliburton conspiracy. But no. The piece entirely leaves out the Bush years, but interestingly it does reach back to the Clinton years?
When you heard the terrible news from Arizona, were you completely surprised? Or were you, at some level, expecting something like this atrocity to happen?

Put me in the latter category. I’ve had a sick feeling in the pit of my stomach ever since the final stages of the 2008 campaign. I remembered the upsurge in political hatred after Bill Clinton’s election in 1992 — an upsurge that culminated in the Oklahoma City bombing. And you could see, just by watching the crowds at McCain-Palin rallies, that it was ready to happen again. The Department of Homeland Security reached the same conclusion: in April 2009 an internal report warned that right-wing extremism was on the rise, with a growing potential for violence.
Conveniently leaving out the Bush years he points the finger directly at Sarah Palin and the Tea Party. But guess what? Once again it turns out that the opposite is true. This guy was a one time supporter of Rep. Gabriel Giffords.

Ex-Friend: Loughner Wanted Eyes of Public, Media
On CBS' "Early Show" Tuesday, Tierney recalled Loughner's obsession with Giffords goes back to a 2007 event where Loughner posed a question which he didn't feel she answered, and became angry. Tierney said Loughner asked Giffords: "What is government if words have no meaning?"
Another report speaks of a letter in Jared's possession from the Representatives office thanking him for attending another event. But we've seen this before. They want their narrative to be etched into the minds of their blind faith followers before the facts get in the way of reality.

Remember the guy who flew a plane into an IRS building? Yep. Same drill. Blame those opposed to big government and higher taxes and then quietly mumble out of the side of your mouth that 'by the way thie guy who flew the plane into the IRS building was a democrat.

Lefty Loon Turns Suicide Bomber

And sometimes they even purportrate the violence themselves on themselves so that they can play the victim and demonize their opponents at the same time.

Manufactured Violence

 Shame on you Paul Krugman. You have revealed yourself to be nothing more than an opportunistic political operative who would use the tragic deaths of six people to further your ideological pursuits. But we already knew that about you.

Marc Ash is a Moron.

The leftist wing-nut founder of TruthOut and now Reader Supported News was one of the pseudo-news lefty operatives to come out early and start blaming Sarah Palin for the horrific events in Arizona.

Political Assassination in Arizona
It's time to set the record straight. The reason that Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords was shot in the brain, "through and through," was that an individual hated and feared her political objectives enough to commit the cowardly act.
Really? 'hated and feared her political objectives' ? Now there is some journalistic integrity for you. Using the deaths of six people and the horrid assassination attempt of a member of congress to jump to a politically convenient conclusion is an obscenity. All indications are that this was nothing more than a full on Mark David Chapman crazy guy.

But OK. You don't believe in defective humans doing random craziness? You need a political motive? I think they might be on to something over at The Jersey Nut blog.

Cover-up: Gabrielle Giffords targeted for being Jewish?
But what I find interesting is why the media absolutely refuses to raise the question of Congresswoman's Giffford's faith. She is Jewish, the first Jewish congressperson from the state of Arizona. In and of itself that could be coincidental, but being that Jared Loughner lists Mein Kamp as one of his favorite books, well - don't you think it is odd a few alarm bells didn't go off? Imagine if a Muslim in a similar situation were killed by an assassin with pockets full of Tea Party literature - the media would go nuts? But a pioneering Jew killed by a man who professed love for Hitler's classic tome? Strangely, the media is silent.
There you go. The so called progressives who want to bring you a European style welfare state also harbor a little bit of that European antisemitism that rears its ugly head every couple of years. So they won't be talking about that much. It's difficult enough to explain why we have been treating our allies in the the middle east, the Israeli's, the way we have to the American people. Well, it's actually not difficult if we just don't talk about it.

But no, the best defense is a good offense, so Marc Ash goes on to say
When men like John Boehner and women like Sarah Palin tell you that they are shocked and saddened by what has occurred you may well assume that they are indeed. They inspired the rampage, and they are now confronted by what they have wrought.
Yeah ok, we'll just pretend that we've forgotten about the videos of president Bush being hung and burned in effigy. We will pretend to ignore all the evidence that the left (can you say Bill Ayers) has always taken the lead in political violence.

All Patches has to fear, is fear itself!
Manufactured Violence
Lefty Loon Turns Suicide Bomber

Mr Ash ends his little rant with
Let this day go down in history with April 14, 1865, November 22, 1963, April 4, 1968 and June 5, 1968.
What? No Reagan assassination attempt?

William Daley - Obama's Fat Cat Chief of Staff

The Chicago Gang continues to roll!

How odd.  Richard Daley vacates his mayoral seat so that Rahm Emmanuel can run, and then the Mayor's brother gets the Chief of staff gig that Emmanuel vacated. Wow!

It probably makes good sense for Obama though. After all, Wall Street donated more money to the Democrats in the 2008 presidential race than they did to Republicans, and now it's time to start thinking about 2012. With the Presidents approval ratings as low as they are, no one is going to believe in another miracle micro donation bonanza again, so it's time to go crawling back to Wall Street after two years of vilifying them and calling them "Fat Cats".

Yeah, his base will probably howl a little bit
A decision to bring Mr. Daley into the heart of the administration could further annoy Mr. Obama’s liberal base, who frequently accused Mr. Emanuel of encouraging the president to compromise on liberal principles to achieve legislative goals.

Mr. Daley, who was chairman of Vice President Al Gore’s 2000 presidential campaign, helped Mr. Clinton pass the North America Free Trade Agreement, which is blamed by many union workers and liberals for helping to move jobs overseas.

Mr. Daley is also the Midwest chairman of JPMorgan Chase & Co., who also serves as the bank’s head of corporate responsibility. If selected to join the Obama administration, his ties to Wall Street are among the elements of his background that would likely be criticized by left-leaning groups.
 But who cares? What are they going to do? Vote Republican?

This move along with some of the other White House organizational changes is a clear signal that the Kamikaze mission is over, and the name of the game right now is 'getting re-elected'.....for now.

Get Ready for the Fiercely All Gay Military (FAGM)

The first official act of rescinding the "Don't ask Don't tell" policy was to relive Captain Owen Honors of his command.  The fiery gay politics that has distracted so many other aspects of our society will now loom large in the military. Here I think the shift and cultural change could be monumental.

Don't get me wrong. This not an anti-gay rant. Gays have rights. They deserve to be treated equal, including some equivalent status as married couples (just don't call it marriage because that would be like deciding to call the sky green instead of blue - but that's a post for another day). And they do deserve to serve in our military.

"Don't ask Don't Tell" merely glossed over what might be considered a logistical problem.

Look at it this way. What if when we decided to let women serve in the military we said "OK ladies you can serve in the military now. Just one thing though. You have to be housed and share showers with the males who serve in the military. What? That's a problem? You feel uncomfortable? Oh get over yourselves. Frankly your not that good looking so I am sure you have nothing to worry about. What? You still feel uncomfortable? What is your major malfunction!?!?  Are you some kind of heterophobic sicko? I mean really!"

I think if we had made it that uncomfortable for women, not many of them would have joined up. I think unless they make the same type of accommodations they made for women (separate housing) or just say tough everybody, suck it up, everyone is being housed together from now on (see "Starship Troopers"), we may see the military culture shift to a point where only gay people will feel comfortable serving.

By not wanting gays to feel uncomfortable everyone else needs to be made uncomfortable.

Captain Owen Honors - Leader!

I never cease to be amazed by the politically correct shallows that rear up every now and then.  This latest bunch of crap over Captain Owen Honors possibly losing his job for providing Saturday Night Live like content for his crew is over the top even for the most intolerant leftist fascist.

Did anyone reporting on this story watch the video?

If you watched the video and you were offended, then you really need to get a life. If you watched the video and you think that Captain Owen Honors should be fired from his post then I expect to see you protesting at 30 Rockefeller Center petitioning NBC to pull that oh so offensive TV show "SNL" off the air.

Our military personnel are real people who are living real lives. Like most of us who are normal and have a sense of humor we are able to get over it if we don't get or don't like a joke. What is abnormal is the ridiculous expectation that our military stand at attention and marches with a stiff spine everywhere they go twenty four hours a day, seven days a week.

It's only January 3rd and we have already stumbled onto 2011's most un-newsworthy story of the year.
