NEWS TO AMUSE

Several stories in that past couple days clearly establish that liberals see lies as merely a matter of public policy.

David Axelrod’s new book reveals what many of us knew in the first place.  President Obama lied his way into office – and on the advice and counsel of Axelrod.  There are many examples, but the one making the news is his oft repeated campaign claim to being opposed to gay marriage.  When running for the State Senate, Obama filled out questionnaires in support of gay marriage.  When running for President, he repeatedly lied, saying he opposed gay marriage.  Once in office, he went back to supporting gay marriage.  He says he “evolved.”  No.  He lied.  What is amazing to me is the many liberals on MSNBC who defended the lie as a good thing – you know, the ends justify the means.  This is no different than the lies Jonathon Gruber exposed about the cost of Obamacare and keeping your doctor.  Or, Obama criticism of Bush using executive orders.  Or, promising to work with Congress.  Or, promising transparency. Or … wow … is there anything Obama says that is the truth?

Remember Dominique Strauss-Kahn, head of the International Monetary Fund, who sexually molested a maid at a New York hotel, and is now charged with being a pimp and orgy host for the high and mighty?  Well, he now claims that it was for the greater good since it helped alleviate the tensions of dealing on the global stage.  I am not making this up.  Using this theory, we might put an end to ISIS by giving them 40 virgins now instead of a gift in the afterlife.

You can’t miss the story of NBC uber anchor Brian Williams, who believes in making up stories to convey the impression of news when the facts are not good enough.  A number of supporters are saying that it is okay to claim false experiences because it gives a better “sense of the event.”  On the other hand, if Williams was coving a raid on a house of ill-repute, would he have reported as being one of the “johns” in order to convey a better “sense of the event?”

Zombies are making a comeback in the world of entertainment.  Also in politics.

I noticed in my local newspaper, that Gloria Steinem has surfaced from obscurity to give a lecture at the University of Miami.  After reading some of her 1960’s retreaded comments, I better understood why the editors placed the news article on the obituary page.  Her’s is the only article on the page where the person is still alive.  Maybe politically dead, counts.

Not since slavery …

Former New York Mayor, and America’s billionaire liberal nanny, Michael Bloomberg has thrown political correctness aside in taking his anti-gun zealotry to a new level.  He suggests that young minority men be banned from gun ownership.  Again, I am not making this stuff up.  This has not been suggested since the Democrats were running things in the old days of southern slavery.  Would somebody get this guy a copy of the Constitution … and the Emancipation Proclamation?

And finally, under “there outta be a law …” or “what’s in a name.”

Recently, a 61-year-old man was arrested, but found not guilty, for taking phone photos up a young girl’s skirt in a Target store.  Though totally repulsive and offensive, the judge could not find a law that made it illegal.  The story was not what caught my eye.  But am I the only one who thought it was ironic that the incident occurred in Beaverton, Oregon?
