Headline Potpourri #29: Geraldo Republican, Occupy Comics & Rubio’s Sip
By: Frederick Meekins
Geraldo announced on The O’Reilly Factor that he is a Republican ahead of his possible announcement to run for a U.S. Senate seat in New Jersey. I wonder how long he has held that conviction. These are the kinds of milksop candidates you are going to end up with when ethnicity is placed before ideology.
DC Comics plans to glorify the Occupy Movement in a new series called “The Movement”. So will the oppressively wealthy denounced in the storyline include DC Comics itself that threatens with legal action independent graphic narrative writers and artists that unwittingly use the term “superhero”? As Greg Gutfeld remarked on Fox News, will this hero’s powers include the ability to hurl his own feces, a tactic often utilized by activists at these protests?
Applying the principle that every step necessary should be taken to curtail firearms violence, since four were shot at Mardi Gras celebrations in New Orleans, will liberals rally to the cause of scaling back this debauched festival?
The Navy SEAL wanting his full retirement should put in his full time like everybody else. Is it that he can’t find a job or that he’s not going to be told what to do outside the military by mere civilians. According to the logic of a Navy SEAL, should someone get full Social Security if they theoretically applied for it four years before being entitled to do so?
In a sermon, a pastor gave an example of where Japanese volunteers were called upon to go on a suicide mission for the glory of the emperor. On this mission, each solider would at most be able to cut one or two pieces of barbed wire before being gunned down by the enemy. The pastor read favorably in essence how it was shameful that Christians weren’t as dedicated. While one might be called upon to sacrifice much for the Lord, is it really proper for those in leadership to manipulate those under their authority by claiming that God told the authority figure to tell the mere lackey for the lackey to throw their life away? Why is such fanaticism held up as the ideal rather than struggling through the mundane drudgery of everyday existence? There is nothing really favorable that can be said about a social context where people are so brainwashed that they are unable to formulate in their minds the thought that if the emperor is this being of nearly godlike power, why can’t he cut his own wire.
A murder/suicide in a neighborhood on the outskirts of a local university will fan the flames of the national gun control debate. However, will anything be done to curtail access to matches or fire accelerants since he also set on fire the house the shooter shared with the victims.
I guess the sterling moral character of the average Obama voter is why the watchbands are behind locked glass at the local Target store.
Unlike Marco Rubio, I suppose Obama never needed a sip of water. The media would have us believe he is the water from which we drink and will never thirst.
A caller to WMAL said that Marco Rubio can’t relate to the average Hispanic person. That is an euphemism meaning that he seems unwilling to lavish more extravagant public handouts on this particular ethnicity than he is already willing.
The cover of the 2/25/13 issue of New Republic consists of a blank background with words written in gray reading “The Republicans: The Party Of White People”. Would the editors of this screed posses the backbone to publish an issue titled “The Democrats: The Party Of Black People” or “The Party Of Jewish People”? And even if the Republican Party was the party of White people, why is that something inherently evil? Ironically, it is only White people that despise being White that make such a fuss over such things. Do not those of other racial backgrounds and ethnicities have political organizations lobbying on behalf of their interests? So why are Whites expected to bend over and have what they’ve worked for pulled out of their backsides?
Regarding Marco Rubio taking a sip of water, shouldn’t Al Sharpton be the last one criticizing someone shoving something edible into their mouth?
Obama spent $900 at a swanky bar to get his wench all liquored up. Yet you are the one that is condemned for eating what you want, riding around in an SUV, and keeping your dwelling climate controlled at 70 degrees.
“Zombie Apocalypse” is a code phrase for the government plans to systematically murder those with epidemic pestilences or radiogenic poisoning.
Screenwriter Tony Kushner claimed that the ideologies promoted by the Reagan administration pose a threat to the idea of human COMMUNITY and the very survival of the species. In other words, Reaganism undermined the notion how the collective is entitled to ever increasing percentages of your stuff. Isn’t Kushner confusing principled individualism with the gay marriages of the type of which he is a participant?
Representative Shelia Jackson Lee insists she is a freed slaved. If she was emancipated, it was probably because her master got tired of dealing with her leftwing back sass.
