Weekend Open Thread / Tip Jar Update

Open thread …. literally : ) Had a rough last couple of weeks, so I will spend the rest of the Saturday afternoon with family and then friends in order to put the icky stuff behind me.

If these last two Tweets (as of this writing) from the @ BarackObama Twitter feed don’t (unfortunately) sum up the absolute arrogance of our “me first” celebrity President, I don’t know what does: “This weekend, Michelle and I join our fellow Christians in marking Good Friday and celebrating Easter.” —President Obama — Barack Obama (@BarackObama) April 18, 2014 Thirty minutes later … Hello, spring. pic.twitter.com/tkkCq0i3…

Debunking the Blame Righty propagandists…again

Here we go again. Liberal media outlets CNN and MSNBC have joined forces with the biased, numbers-cooking Southern Poverty Law Center and New America Foundation to foment renewed fear and hatred of conservative Americans. Their latest talking point: “Right-wing” terrorists have caused more American deaths than Islamic jihadists since 9/11. CNN ran with the “story” first. MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow hopped on the bandwagon tonight and the Blame Righty echo chamber is whipping up another witch-hunt frenzy. According to these divisive and demagogic fear-mongers, “right-wingers” have killed 34 people since 9/11 for “political reasons,” including the three innocent victims of last week’s Kansas City Jewish community center shootings, …
