PELOSI, ATHEISTS, JESSE JACKSON, OWS LOONS – CAN IT GET ANY BETTER?
It’s that time again folks. While the Rat had a difficult time triaging liberal lunacies this week, when you have Nancy Pelosi talking jobs and atheists melting down over Christmas, how can you miss?
Do “Christmas atheists” warm the cockles of your heart, or what? While these people are predictably irritable all year long, (Seven in Heaven Street, the World Trade Center Cross, “God Bless America” posters, etc.) they become super-crazed during the Christmas Season. As is the case with their OWS pals, atheist organizations have never been particularly effective with “public relations.” Yep, there’s nothing like celebrating the birth of Christ to set these people’s hair on fire. Merry Christmas!
In a childish attempt to ridicule Wisconsin Family Action’s nativity scene in the state’s capitol rotunda, the Freedom From Religion Foundation set up its own version of a nativity scene: The wisemen are Charles Darwin, Thomas Jefferson and Albert Einstein. “Baby Jesus” is an African girl. The angels are an astronaut and the Statue of Liberty. The “Heathen’s Greetings” wish is classic, in-your-face atheism too. Such clever devils.
“Since it is a public forum, it didn’t look like legally we could do anything, so, we were left with putting up our own, natural nativity display,” said Annie Laurie Gaylor, co-founder of the Freedom From Religion Foundation.
Of course you were “left with” looking like bitter petty morons, Annie; it’s what you people always do. Keep doing it too; it reminds us who you really are.
Moonbat Pelosi says extending unemployment benefits will create 600 thousand jobs. This woman is the gift that keeps on giving – even during the holidays! Yep, “Macroeconomics-Professor” Nancy “We have to pass the [health care ] bill so that you can find out what is in it” Pelosi insists that an extension of unemployment benefits would “make a difference of 600,000 jobs to our economy.”
On Planet Pelosi: “The payroll tax cut that the president proposed would put $1,500 in the pockets of 160 million Americans,” said Queen Nimrod: “The unemployment insurance extension is not only good for individuals; it has a macroeconomic impact. It would make a difference of 600 thousand jobs to our economy.”
$1,500 “extra” is going to create 600 thousand jobs?
The claim is ridiculous. Whatever short-term economic benefits arise from “giving” $1,500 to 160 millions Americans is not enough to generate enough marketplace demand to create 600 thousand jobs, nor would its absence eliminate 600 thousand jobs.
The last time Congress extended the jobless benefits was a year ago; since then, the economy has added about 1.5 million jobs – an average of 125,000 a month, which is only enough to keep up with population growth. Pretending that Pelosi’s correct and we subtract 600 thousand from the 2011 numbers, the Obama Regime’s conomic policies would account for growth that falls well below that of population maintenance — at only 75,000 per month. This liar needs to retire.
Lib radio host (and ex-CNN host) tells Tebow: “S-T-F-U about Jesus.” While self-proclaimed socialist, Bill Press used the acronym, everyone over the age of 12 knows what it means: “Shut the fu*k up about Jesus.”
“You know what I want to say, ‘S-T-F-U.’ I’m tired of hearing Tim Tebow and all this Jesus Talk,” said Press. “He better be praying hard this week, because he’s up against a real quarterback on Sunday — Tom Brady and the New England Patriots.”
“Everybody wants to make him a hero. I think he’s a disgrace. I think he’s an embarrassment.”
“If you’re one of the silly millions of Americans who loves Tebow’s in-your-face kind of Christianity, consider this. What if he were a devout Muslim, who bowed to Mecca after every touchdown and shouted “Allahu Akbar?”
Really? How about you consider this, jackass: If Tebow were a Muslim, you and your leftist pals in the Obama Media Group would be defending the crap out his bowing toward Mecca, you hypocrite. Funny, I never heard you tell the recently-departed Christopher Hitchens to “Shut the fu*k up about atheism.” After all, he was pretty demonstrative – right, Bill?
OWS protesters throw bricks, road flares, sharpened steel in Seattle. Apparently, Occupy Seattle protesters think the First Amendment gives them the right to hurl bricks, flares, sharpened rebar and other objects at police officers. (another obvious similarity with the Tea Party, huh?) As is often the case with liberals in general, the OWS loons are denying the charges. As luck would have it, the Rat found the following YouTube clip – which includes video from both sides. The Rat reports, you decide:
Jesse Jackson says “Jesus was an occupier.” The completely-irrelevant Jesse Jackson continues his desperate, pathetic attempt to attach his worn-out wagon to the faded star of the Occupation Wall Street militants. You may recall he tried to compare OWS loons in Atlanta to the brave people who fought for civil rights in the south during the 1960’s. Now, Jesse “Hymietown“ Jackson is back with a Christmas theme: Jesus. Yep, the race-baiter extraordinaire is in England this time – firing up the Occupy London loons:
“Gandhi was an Occupier, Martin Luther King was an Occupier, Mandela was an Occupier.”
“If Dr. King was [sic] here today, he’d be occupying. Occupying is a just cause, a moral cause.”
Um, actually if Dr. King were here today, Jesse? He’d “be telling” you you’re a fool – and a disgrace to his legacy. Give it up, rev.
Members of U.S. Congress can’t say Merry Christmas in mail. Congressmen who submit official mailings for review by the Congressional Franking Commission to determine if it can be “franked,” or paid for with tax dollars are being told that no holiday greetings, including “Merry Christmas,” can be sent in official mail.
In a further extension of the lunacy, Congressmen cannot say ‘Happy New Year’ but can say “Have a happy new year” – referencing the time period of a new year, but not the holiday.
Franking Manual: 4(a). Example of Nonfrankable Items:
“Birthday, anniversary, wedding, birth, retirement or condolence messages and holiday greetings are prohibited.”
“You may make reference to the season as a whole, using language along the lines of ‘Have a safe and happy holiday season.’ It may only be incidental to the piece rather than the primary purpose of the communication.”
“Currently, incidental use of the phrase Happy Holidays is permissible but Merry Christmas is not,” according a commission spokesman. Whoa, back up the bus: does not the manual say, in part, “holiday greetings are prohibited.”? But, “Happy Holidays” is okay? Sounds like a “holiday greeting” to me. Perhaps, it’s the Merry Christmas “holiday greeting” that’s the real problem, huh?
I’m sure “Peace, Happiness And Faith On Eid!” would be just fine, wouldn’t it? After all, didn’t B. Hussein direct NASA to reach out to Muslims?
Merry Christmas, America. Oh, and Happy New Year too!
This crazy (liberal) world gets crazier by the day.
