NEWSWEEK vs. The Atlantic: Dueling Data wonks

Newsweek‘s “Hit the road, Barack: Why we need a new president” written by conservative historian Niall Ferguson vs. The Atlantic‘s article “A Full Fact-Check of Niall Ferguson’s Very Bad Argument Against Obama” by senior associate editor Matthew O’Brien are good reads.

The only problem going on here is with me and my frustration in knowing who to believe anymore without having to do my own research to ferret out the truth.  If I have to devote one more minute to fact-checking the supposed ‘fact-checkers’ on facts (not to mean the writers referenced here), I might as well finish the dam research and go the one-more-step and just publish my dam book Liars for Hire for a million bucks advance and get on with my life, hunh?  I dream of isolated beaches….aaaaaah

Crikey-Roos!

Sen. Pat Toomey (R-PA) & Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) vs. Common Sense

Sen. Pat Toomey (R-PA) shared the podium with Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) to disgust (sic) gun control and yup, there’s that word again, “Common Sense” bandied about during their discussion.  Both senators agree that society is on the down spiral, morals-wise, but they think that background checks will ferret out hoodlums and the mentally ill from obtaining guns.  COMMON SENSE, senators?

  • It’s naive and irrational to think that a criminal is going to fill out background check information, wait for it, honestly.  Honestly, it’s the most stupid presumption going here, guys.
  • Likewise, the mentally ill, may have no COMMON SENSE and will lie, beg or borrow any dam weapon they can get their hands on (the recent stabbing at Lone Star College proves this).
  • It’s only honest, law-abiding citizens that, wait for it, obey laws.

With all due respect, senators.

It’s the Self-Control NOT Gun Control, Stupid!

Let’s get real here, pardner.  This Instant-Gratification Party needs to end.   The Trigger-Tempers need to be reined in, like, now.   Our kids and young adults need to get down to the business of becoming productive, responsible citizens.   Our parents need to put down their toys and self-interests and get down to the business of raising their kids as though they love them.   Not tolerate them.  Not resent them because they require one’s time and attention.   Feed their bodies and their souls.  Teach them and yourselves moderation, patience and self-control.  Get your kids some religion and community service to learn to get over themselves and serve others.   Get off your high-horse and get down to business!  And remember, PopUpCommontater is not full of what your horse leaves behind it, warm and steaming.  Hee Haw.

I appreciate my gun. Thank you gun. Thank you for standing at the ready. Thank you for saving my life.

Ode to Gun

glock22-sm

Without you, my gun
I’d have no one, not even
me.  I owe you one.

So here’s THAT one, gun;
where I say you are MY gun-
nothing above you

save Heaven’s Father.
Nothing between us except
God and our country.

Have Gun Will Travel
to ends of earth proclaiming
God’s Liberty song!

Please don’t tread on me
world, or I’ll make my gun sing!
rat-a-tat-tat, rat

C’mon gun, let’s get
hell out of Dodge, let heaven
take a crack at it.

From dust are we born,
to dust we shall rest in peace;
me and Blue steel gun.

Sen. Diane Feinstein, gun owner for *her* own protection vs. wants to take *your* gun! *hypocrite alert*

Here’s a good one to mull over hours before Prez-O takes to the podium to dictate what you are allowed in the World According to Garp, er, Grab-ber, as in, grabbing up all your Constitutional Rights squirreled away in your nest egg.  As Prez-O stands at the podium, backed by all his Enforcers backed by their Big Guns with their own Big Gunners, just think for a moment about how FAST and FURIOUS they are to get their gun ban laws enacted (BEFORE they clean their own house of illegal doings?).  You’ll only have your pitch forx to hold them off at the stand-off corral, ok?  And so, without further ado, here’s Diane Feinstein du jour senator, sitting in her congressional seat (where’s her seat belt??!!), rationalizing why she had to arm herself to her captive *snort* audience because she received death threats – and she was gonna shoot them first!  Gotta love these congressional Ghost GunBusters!

Prezzes Karzai & Obama White House presser and Karzai at Georgetown University

I watched both the joint news conference and Karzai’s address on U.S.-Afghanistan relations and this is my 2 cents:  I was awe-striken by the difference in Karzai’s speech patterns between the 2 events.  While at the podium with Obama at the White House, decked out in his home country regalia, Karzai spoke hesitantly, displaying micro-stutters at beginning of each utterance, giving the impression his English left much to be desired having all the makings of a goat herder , hesitatant, ah ah ah-ing, etc., compared to his speech at Georgetown University.  Hat’s off!  Karzai seemed like a new man. A man whose speech was unhesitant, sure-footed, and very much like a seasoned American.  What’s Up With That????!!!

(I know his family lives in Baltimore…duh!)

Private, er, parts of this website holding “Ellie” in SpamLand *wink*

Hiya Ellie, er, Wayne, of foreign allegiance in domicile .de/Germany.  Thanks for your comment which will not show up here for the simple reason that you are a liar, liar, pants on fire!  and never had a “similar” website  such as PuC’s <commontater.wordpress.com/the-wrecking-ball> albeit, with a “slightly different spelling”, because it ain’t, plus the fact that you’re being held “prisoner” in the spam hold *tricksy titters* of this ship.   No, I did not “click” on the URL link you provided <dewaynecagle@vegemail.com> ……………….because my readers will!

p.s. I don’t mean you no harm, Ellie – but you done tol’ me a lie – so good-bye!  Have a nice life.

It’s NOT the Birthicate! It’s the foreign FAH-THER! sayeth the Constitution (*,*)

Really, people, this is not rocket science and you can look it up yourself.

So, Arizona GOP Chairman Tom Morrissey resigned last Wednesday after he lit a fire under the state’s Electoral College asshat meeting when he questioned our Illustrious Leader’s eligibility, something to do with a quack birthicate [source].   I’m not kidding.  Morrissey managed to rise to his lofty position without knowing anything about the U.S. Constitution’s requirement for the presidency.  To be fair, Morrissey, Chairman Don Ascoli and former Graham County Republican Chairman John D. Rhodes have basketballs to speak truth to power and I salute them for their bravery.   (For the accuracy of their contention…bzzzzt.)  As long as the birthicate feign is front and center, they won’t address the larger issue of the IL’s foreign father, which is the issue.  Our founding father’s addressed this issue of ‘allegiance to the country’ in their writings, and reason why; to be a natural born citizen one has to have PARENTS who are U.S. citizens.  Not one parent, but 2 parents.  A mother and a father.  It’s why they use the word “parents”, as in, plural.  If our knucklehead leaders had to read the Constitution as a prerequisite to placement on the ballot to begin with, we wouldn’t be having these discussions.  “Every child born requires no act of law to establish the fact the child inherits through nature his/her father’s citizenship as well as his name (or even his property) through birth” (Defining Natural-Born Citizen).  Our IL’s father was a British subject, therefore so is our IL unless he disavowed his British allegiance and consented in writing allegiance to the U.S. of America.  We have yet to see evidence of this, as far as I can glean.  (Which, of course, will suddenly appear online posthaste [if the usual psychopants read my posts and report to their Leader.])  So, let me capitulate: It’s not about the Birthicate:

*It’s the Foreign Allegiance*

Welcome, visitors!

To all recent visitors to my site, WELCOME! Welcome to PopUpCommontater’s lair, where the truth is lain bare, sometimes on a dare, and where falsies are rare. *tricksy titters* Some of you are legit. Others, well, you’ll soon have a fit. My eyes are on you, too. -oo- I’m no Lame Cherry, as Cherry is not lame. Me, on the other hand, am a fool; a toothless crybaby who set up shoppe to ed-u-cate the educable – not to taunt those who possess brains the size of a planet to my marble, but just for crikey roos, if your brain’s the size of a planet, why the hay would you settle for earth when the universe is your milieu! a space limitless enough for your limitless brilliance? Why rule this puny planet when you can go conquer your own ball-and-chain mega-orb, Babylon 5, or 6-ish? Why, oh, why expend your mega-intelligence here, in Blandland. Shoot for the stars! populate Mars! Mensa new frontiers! Abandon us, here!

We. are. a. figment. of. your. imagination. We are not worthy of your presence. Surely you have better things to do than rule us unruly thankless anencephalic nonquislings, no? Why can’t we all just get along???

Yes, why? I think we can’t get along because you don’t want a world without war. Or, without power…money…or sex.

Good luck with that.

So to my visitors from France, Belgium, Macedonia, Sweden et al., if you’re drawn to truth, then I receive you with open arms! if you’re here to monitor me, be warned I’m monitoring you. If you come in peace for knowledge then I mean you no harm and you shall find some thing to take away from here to enlarge your own world of ideas.

If you’re here to administer mischief upon me, well then, PuC you!

Prez-O to penalize individuals if state doesn’t comply with Obamacare………I’m SHOCKED!!! (**,)

“Residents of states that refuse to set up health insurance exchanges under Obamacare are set to be hit with higher premiums under new rules announced by the Health and Human Services Department.”

Where I come from, that’s called B.R.I.B.E.R.Y.  COERCION, if you will.  Such a noble man.  Gee, I never imagined the old baseball bat to the knees persuasion by a seated prez.  My, oh, my, how things have changed, yes?

1. State residents of Obamacare non-compliant states will enjoy perhaps a 3.5% higher premium if the state doesn’t pay The State “protection” money like street-front store owners who have to divvy-up protection money to thugs who “own the streets” or they come by and break your windows, loot, and beat up the owner and its clientele.  Tell me that’s not classy iffen the prez do dat.  Only this time round it’ll be your white-collared neighbors doing the shake down a la Jackson.  Pretty cool, huh?  Please note I wrote “white collared” (not white colored) as even blacks can be white-collar thieves-of-the-State.  Even I know liberals will seize the day on that one! *tricksy titters*

One has to be brain-dead not to see that prez-O is reneging to some point on most of his promises.  Even the Pell grants, you stupidly uninformed students!
