“The Daily Show” Lampoons Union Hypocrisy (!)

with 2 comments

Watch as the union representative squirms and stumbles in his attempt to answer adversarial questions (for which he is comically unprepared). This could be a breakthrough for the reliably leftist “Daily Show.”

“Let them eat carbon credits”

without comments

From the American Thinker:

The environmental impact of Al Gore is growing faster than his waistline. The warmist con game has been very lucrative for the king of carbon credits. He and Tipper have just added to their collection of energy-gobbling homes with a nearly 9 million dollar 5 bedroom, 9 bath Italian-style villa in the celebrity-studded coastal enclave of Montecito, California, home to Oprah Winfry and many other celebrities. Al certainly likes living large. The home comes complete with 6 fireplaces. How are Al and Tip going to use them without generating carbon dioxide?

BARACK OBAMA (ca. 2004-2007): Democrats should not pass healthcare reform with a simple majority

without comments

See below a video compendium of Barack Obama consistently expressing a belief that significant legislation, including healthcare reform, should not be passed with a “fifty-plus-one” strategy.

I wonder how much longer clear instances of hypocrisy like this– repeated, video-captured self-contradiction– will continue to surprise us. It seems to happen all the time– tactics that you previously condemned as overreaching and dangerous become perfectly palatable once your team wins the majority.

UPDATE: Gateway Pundit has more.

New Carbon Credit Firm Achieves Offets By Smothering Non-Rich Americans

with 2 comments

PALO ALTO, CA – Vice President Al Gore announced on Monday the creation of a new “carbon credit” firm that will offer carbon emission offsets to wealthy international clients by suffocating non-rich Americans and climate change deniers.

The new firm, which is named Expiria, will target high net worth individuals and families whose appetite for private air travel and electricity-guzzling palatial homes has resulted in an unusually large carbon “footprint.”

While other carbon offset solutions exist, they depend to a great extent on renewable energy sources such as solar, wind, hydroelectric and biofuels. Gore described Expiria’s innovative solution to reducing emissions,

The great thing about our new technology is that it attacks the problem from three directions.

First, it provides a market for anybody from the wildly wealthy to the preposterously wealthy to cancel out the deleterious effects of their jet-setting lifestyle and shield themselves from cries of hypocrisy.

Second, it promises to eliminate a large segment of the human habitational cohort, thereby reducing the considerable emissions that humanoid bioentities make on an aggregate level– much of it simply by exhaling.

Third, Expiria has targeted for carbon-negation individuals who have expressed skepticism about global climate change. They’re already expelling poisonous carbon gas every time they open their mouth– there’s no need to tolerate their hateful anti-science either. That makes Expiria’s work much easier, creating a virtuous cycle between numbers one, two and three.

Much of the work is done by the Carbon-Negative Smothering PillowTM, a product manufactured by Gaiatech, another green tech company co-founded by Gore.

A non-rich American could not be reached for comment because we did not bother to contact any.

Michael Moore and the Liberal Press: A Love Story

without comments

surprising that a face like that would have smugness in its repertoire of expressions

A film review from Kenneth Turan writing for the LA Times:

Say what you like about Michael Moore, he certainly knows how to pick his subjects. “Fahrenheit 9/11” was so au courant about the invasion of Iraq it won the 2004 Palme d’Or at Cannes, and 2007’s “Sicko” got the jump on the current healthcare imbroglio. Now, barely a year after the Wall Street meltdown, “Capitalism: A Love Story” examines, in typical love-it-or-leave-it Moore fashion, the causes of the collapse of the century.

In a nonscientific poll* conducted by Missourah.com, it was discovered that 95% of the LA Times’ remaining 200 readers get a tingly sensation running up their legs when they read words like “au courant” and “imbroglio”, and hear any reference to the Palme d’Or award.  The remaining 5% clearly did not go to Columbia.  Maybe Brown, or…a state school.  If those people can even read…

*Note:  no one at Missourah.com actually wasted their time polling LA Times readers

JIMMY CARTER: Racial segregation is a natural inclination

without comments

Jimmy Carter describing his opposition to government programs “to inject black families into a white neighborhood just to create some sort of integration”:

I have nothing against a community that is made up of people who are Polish, or who are Czechoslovakians, or who are French Canadians or who are blacks trying to maintain the ethnic purity of their neighborhoods. This is a natural inclination.

From Time Magazine, 1976. H/T Mike B.

UPDATE: More on Carter’s own record on race from NewsReal:

Carter campaigned for governor of Georgia as a self-proclaimed “redneck,” in an era when that word had pronounced racial connotations. His campaign distributed a photo of his gubernatorial opponent Carl Sanders being embraced by black basketball players to a Ku Klux Klan rally. Carter pledged to invite Alabama’s infamous segregationist governor George Wallace to Georgia if elected. He once said he was “proud” to have the equally segregationist Lester Maddox as his lieutenant governor following the 1970 election, calling Governor Axe-handle “the essence of the Democratic Party” (which he was).

Comical Hypocrisy on MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow Show

with 6 comments

Another pop-up video from Mainstream News Bellowed Comically (MSNBC).

Frank Schaefer, author of “Crazy for God,” decries the use of Nazi allusions among a handful of protesters, then cannot resist employing his own Nazi allusion. Another reason the Rachel Maddow Show is the second funniest show on TV (after Countdown with Keith Olbermann).
