Dumb and Dumber Alert: Jim Carrey, Please Shut Up!

He made moronic remarks about people who exercise their 2nd Amendment rights. Along with his former squeeze, the equally vacuous Jenny McCarthy, he’s a “vaccination denialist,” meaning that he believes in the thoroughly debunked and dangerous theory that vaccines cause autism. Now there’s this idiocy, denouncing “corporate greed.” Remind me again. How many millions has this guy made from films produced and distributed by evil corporations?

Theater Shooter’s Connection to Black Bloc?

I’m no Brian Ross, and I don’t want to be misunderstood. We know very little about this disturbed individual who murdered 12 movie goers in Aurora, Colorado, and what has been reported may not be accurate. With that in mind, consider the following reported by the Denver Post:

Less than an hour later a man, dressed in black and wearing a gas mask and what looked like body armor, marched into the theater through the same emergency exit. He lobbed two canisters and almost instantly the theater filled with smoke.

Dressed in black and wearing a gas mask? That sounds very similar to the Black Bloc anarchists affiliated with the Occupy Wall Street movement, doesn’t it? And doesn’t this Batman movie present a very negative view of the Occupy movement?

Stay tuned.

 

What Romney Needs to Say About Romneycare-Show Notes: 2-26-12

You need this book!

Any truth to the rumor that if the Oscars go over 3 hours, Obama is going to show up and personally apologize?

Nancy Pelosi was right: we had to pass the bill, Obamacare, to find out what was in the bill. Now that we are, we are discovering an endless supply of nasty little surprises, which result in higher costs, rationing of care and many good doctors leaving the profession. Our special guest Grace-Marie Turner, president of the Galen Institute and author of the new book, Why Obamacare is Wrong for America, has been examining health care policy for over 15 years. She has some terrific advice for Mitt Romney. Let’s hope if he’s the nominee, he’ll take it. Listen to the interview to hear it. Ms. Turner’s appearance begins at ~40 minutes after the opening of the show. She makes clear that if we don’t treat Obamacare like one of those abortion survivors that B.Hussein was blithely willing to let die by defunding it and then repealing it, America as a free country is over. Note to John Boehner: remember what happened in 1996. Despite what we read in the revisionist history written by LSM, about Bill Clinton’s skillful defeat of Newt Gingrich, the real story is that Bob Dole did the El Foldo because he was afraid of what would happen when it was his turn to run for president. Moderates strike again! Don’t take my word for it. Liberal apparatchik Paul Begala agrees.

Second Amendment Update: Another weapon from Fast and Furious involved in murder of a federal agent. The parents of ICE agent Jaime Zapata were shocked to learn that the weapon trafficker was sentenced to prison in January. No one bothered to contact them! They are looking for answers. There’s one question we’d all like answered: Why is Eric Holder still Attorney General?

More than 200 attend concealed carry event in Rockford – Rockford, IL – Rockford Register Star (read the hilarious advice given to gun grabbers to women who are attacked. I say don’t bring a rat-tailed comb–who the heck has had one of those in the last 30 years?–to an attempted rape.)

Producer Thomas suggests a method to get the state of Illinois to join the other 49 and allow some form of concealed carry to law-abiding citizens, one that would be very effective; give Illinois pol Mike Madigan a commission on every bullet sold.

British journo Katty Kay, appearing on the 2/26/12 edition of Chris Matthews’ syndicated show, is mystified about why “Americans” are obsessed with non-issue of contraception. Gee, could it be that the Lame Stream Media, led by former dem operative George Stephanapolous, took its marching orders from the Regime back in January? (We were the first to point that out on our January 8 show.)

Best Performance by an Insufferable Gasbag in a Non-Supporting (as in supporting America) Role-it’s Oscar Sunday, after all

Nominees:

  • Barack Hussein Obama, who actually deserves a Lifetime Achievement in this category, but was nominated for his statement a couple of weeks ago that it “turns out” that pesky Constitution is a MUCH bigger problem than could have realized before he got into office. Really, “Professor?”
  • Tim “Turbo Tax” Geithner, falling back on the dem meme that paying taxes is patriotic, and the price of being an American. Does this statement mean that he’s plagiarizing from Joe Biden?
  • Warren Buffet, whether out of guilt or for ego gratification, allowing his secretary to be used as a shill for a false narrative about the “unfairness” of our tax system. Nice little lame happy talk routine, Warren and Debbie. Too bad it’s not true.
  • Liberal brain rot victim/MS-NBC host Melissa Harris Perry explains the GOP’s “War on Women” to Al Sharpton. It’s a national eating disorder. Who knew? Has anyone told Moochelle? The brilliant professor also weighed in on the movie “The Help.” I know that you will enjoy this excellent analysis The PJ Tatler » Why MSNBC’s Melissa Harris-Perry Pretends to Hate The Help.

Obama discovers new form of alternative energy: pond scum. No doubt that will be the answer to $5/gallon gas. Which campaign contributor owns an algae factory?

Caller Marathonpundit answers our request for alternative Oscar hosts, and suggests an excellent choice. He also updates us on his great reporting on the Occupy movement. Is that still around? As long as there are people who refuse to take their psych meds, there will be filthy misfits obstructing commerce, roaming the streets, screeching obscenities.

Never doubt me file: I told you I thought Billy Crystal would be lame, based on this montage I watched before yesterday’s show. Never doubt me.

Hillsdale Econ Professor, Gary Wolfram, on Occupy Wall Street: Today on the Teri O’Brien Show

This week we’ll focus on the democrats,’ both elected and unelected, the latter sometimes called “journalists,” and their desperate attempts to deflect attention from the embarrassing, and possible perjurious, Solyndra testimony by another Obama administration braniac, Department of Energy Secretary Stephen Chu. They hope that by incessantly bleating about Newt Gingrich’s alleged lobbying on behalf of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, they can cover up the reeking stench of corruption and cronyism rising from the administration’s green energy schemes. Unfortunately for Obama and his liberal friends, trying to cover up this fetid  mess by talking about the GOP field is like trying to conceal the odor of a rotting corpse with a can of air freshener. You’re going to need a lot more than Lysol for this one.

Speaking of foul odors, the Occupy Everything but a Shower and a Job Movement continues its always silly and juvenile, and increasingly violent, anti-capitalist activities, seemingly blind to what is obvious to even moderately intelligent observers; specifically, that it is only capitalism that makes their lives possible. Our special guest, Gary Wolfram, Hillsdale College professor of economics, and author of the recent column “Occupy Wall Street Blind to the Benefits of Capitalism,” will explain why this bunch of whining slackers reminds him of Monty Python.

Tune in Sunday for the rest of the story.

Obama’s “Broad-Based Frustration:” In Other Words, Insanity on Parade

Remember when Barack Obama described those filthy, foul-mouthed, screeching refugees from a looney bin, commonly known as “Occupy Wall Street,” as “giving voice to a more broad-based frustration about how our financial system works?”

Submitted for your approval, a few choice examples of what the Dear Reader considers average Americans, just like you and me, throwing bodily fluids at people who don’t want to give them free food, shoving old ladies down the stairs, wishing for 911 more 9/11s and, my personal favorite, a guy who looks like a cross between Charlie Manson and Leonardo DiCaprio ranting insanely, and hurling racial epithets.

  • What, you aren’t going to give us free food? P**s on that!
  • How dare you ride a bus for 11 hours to attend a tribute to that douchebag Ronald Reagan? Take that, you old bag!
  •  ‘I WOULDN’T GIVE A F*CK IF 9/11 HAPPENED 911 MORE TIMES’ (H/T Atlas Shrugged)
  • Nutso Manson-DiCaprio

I could go on, but better yet check out  the amazing  “rap sheet” of the Occupy Everything but a Job and/or a Shower Stall movement that Big Government’s John Nolte has compiled.

Mr. President, are you sure you want to characterize this collection of kooks, misfits and certifiable wackjobs are representatives of the “frustrations” of the American people?

Obama’s Latest Vote Buying Scheme

As you no doubt heard, the latest example of the liberal racket, in which they create a problem with their income redistribution schemes, then confiscate money from the productive to hand out to their friends and mascots, while pretending to solve that problem, is Barack Obama’s plan to help poor, long suffering liberal arts grads suffocating under the crushing debt that they incurred to get their worthless degrees.

Do you think health care costs have skyrocketed over the last ten years? They have, but not as much as the cost of college. Now, I’ll bet most of you will answer the following question correctly, even if you didn’t go to college: did government intervention make college more or less expensive?

From the Michigan (as in University of) Daily:

Tuition data for the University’s Law School show the effect of government intervention. Adjusted for 2009 values, yearly tuition at the Law School in 1950 was $1,884 for state residents and $4,037 for out-of-state students. In 1950, the inflation-adjusted, median personal income was $18,103, meaning that students would have earned enough to pay off a year of tuition in less than three months.

Fast forward 60 years: tuition for the Law School is currently $41,310 and $44,310 for in-state and out-of-state students, respectively. The median personal income is approximately $25,000. Today, the average American would have to work more than 18 months to afford a year of tuition.

What caused the difference? Before World War II, there were no government loans or grants. When these things did not exist, college was inexpensive and affordable. Government intervention in education has caused costs to skyrocket.

Besides driving up the cost of education, the government is driving down its value. Since fewer individuals went to college before World War II, people didn’t stay in school very long before they joined the work force. Today, however, with guaranteed loans, droves of Americans obtain college degrees. Thus, the value of the degree has diminished. This is basic supply and demand. To stand out, a student must obtain a graduate degree or Ph.D. These students spend more years in college, accumulate more debt and delay their entrances into the work force, where they can actually make money.

Today, anyone who wants to go to college has access to a loan co-signed by the government. Students then bid and compete against one another for spots at universities with government money. There is no restraint on the demand, which causes an increase in prices. Universities love this, as it enables them to increase admission costs knowing that the government will guarantee the debt. If anything, college tuitions should be decreasing. We are currently in a recession and demand for highly skilled workers has diminished. Unemployment is high, and incomes and the economy are shrinking — yet college prices continue to rise.

Could colleges afford to charge $30,000 a year if government loans did not exist to support this artificially created demand? The answer should be obvious. These programs mean that colleges have no incentive to bring down costs.

The reality of everything that liberals say is the exact opposite. They always pay lip service to those who play by the rules, but they now they want to reward people who borrowed money and now expect to whine, beat on bongo drums and refuse to take showers so that they don’t have to pay it back. They claim to want to help “working families,” but now want to effectively shovel tax dollars into the coffers of elitist college professors and administrators who took oodles of cash under false pretenses.

Obama’s latest plan is breathtaking in its undisguised political cynicism. Rasmussen reports that most Americans oppose this racket, but that doesn’t matter. Remember, most members of this audience reside in the bottom of the Obama pyramid, the group whose job is to silently submit and pay while the royalty at the top live large, and those in the middle receive the favors they dole out. That’s why most of you will be expected to work until you drop dead so that members of public employee unions, especially school teachers, can retire in their late 50’s at 75% of their average salary. Now you are being asked to also pay for the “educations”, and I use that word very charitably, of spoiled brats whose votes are essential for Barack Obama’s re-election. It’s beyond nauseating, and if the American people allow this bunch to pull this scandalous plan off by not showing up in droves to vote them out, we deserve what we get.

Content of Character? The Left’s Shredding of Dr. King’s Legacy. Today on the Teri O’Brien Show

This week, on the day of the dedication of Dr. Martin Luther King as Mao Memorial, we’ll focus on how the Left his turned his aspirations for a society where the focus is on the content of a person’s character, not the color of his skin, into a bad joke with its poster child America’s first affirmative action president. Candidate Obama surfed a wave of white guilt and ignorance first into the U.S. Senate and then all the way into the Oval Office. Once there, he went about keeping his promise to “remake” America, as in to exact revenge on the evil, racist, imperialistic Amerika that he learned to despise from Frank Marshall Davis, Bill Ayers and Rev. Jeremiah Wright. One key player in that game plan is the Attorney General, Eric Holder, who famously called out his fellow citizens as “cowards” on the issue of race. Now mired in at least two scandals, it’s clear that those who suggested that Mr. Holder should never have been hired in the place were correct. At the time, we summarized our objection to his confirmation with two words: Marc Rich. Mr. Holder displayed the same selective amnesia in the Marc Rich pardon that he’s showing as his coverup of the Fast and Furious debacle unravels. Perhaps he was right about that coward thing. The evidence is that he remains Attorney General.

Last week Congress issued an invitation, also called a subpoena, to Attorney General Holder, offering him the opportunity to explain the following braintwister: Barack Obama mentioned back in March that neither he nor Holder had approved the boneheaded Fast and Furious plan. Two months later, in May, Mr. Holder said he had probably first heard of it a couple of weeks earlier. There’s also the little matter of it being mentioned in 2009 on a Justice Department website. Quite a head scratcher, that presumably can’t be explained by a wrinkle in the time-space continuum. Amazingly, on the day the subpoena was issued, Eric Holder dramatically appeared before the media to announce his department’s crackerjack work foiling an Iranian plot to murder the Saudi ambassador that was straight out of a B-movie. Even more amazing, the hit was supposed to be carried out by …wait for it…a Mexican drug cartel! Mr. Holder didn’t mention whether any of the weapons they planned to use came from Arizona gun stores.

Tune in Sunday for the rest of the story.
