Let Them Eat Paella!

While unemployment in this country remains on the up tick, General (Government) Motors invests $500 million in a plant in Mexico, and forecasted retail sales fell short for a fourth straight month, First Lady Michelle Obama is spending a luxury filled 5 day vacation in Spain on the U.S. taxpayer's dime.

What a complete joke.

Does Stephen Bainbridge Throw Like a Little Girl?

Or did he get his nerdy wine-swilling butt kicked a few time in high school by some lunkhead jocks? I ask only because of the apparent hostility the good law professor from UCLA has toward sports, as projected in the elitist-laden swipe he took at Sarah Palin in his blog post on the reasons why it's getting to be embarrassing to be a conservative.
Let's tick off ten things that make this conservative embarrassed by the modern conservative movement:

A poorly educated ex-sportwriter who served half of one term of an minor state governorship is prominently featured as a -- if not the -- leading prospect for the GOP's 2012 Presidential nomination.
Why pejoratively mention that Sarah Palin was an "ex-sportswriter," as opposed to a television journalist, if you didn't have some deep seeded antipathy to sports, right? At least give me credit for looking for a unique angle to Bainbridge's snooty comments.

Example #99823829 That Liberals Really Hate Democracy

In striking down Proposition 8, a state constitutional amendment regarding the definition of marriage that California voters approved by a clear majority, Federal District Court Judge Vaughn Walker proclaimed that "Gender no longer forms an essential part of marriage." Perry et al. v. Schwarzenegger et al.

To the extent that this foundational comment is completely without legal basis, as well as the fact that Judge Walker is an unelected public official, there should be no doubt left in anyone's mind - except for maybe the severely deranged - that the policies of liberalism simply cannot prevail in a democratic republic.

Oh, and by the way, Judge Walker should be impeached for the illegal conflict of interest he had in this case, and for violating the First Amendment rights of Proposition 8 supporters.

Beyond Outrageous

Below is a video of Joseph Holland (in the striped blue shirt), a 25 year old graduate student at Northwestern University who, as you'll see, was peacefully praying the rosary outside of a Planned Parenthood abortion clinic in downtown Chicago. Although clearly not interfering with anyone wanting to enter the clinic, it appears that Joseph was criminally charged for this behavior under the pretext that he was engaged in "disorderly conduct" in violation of the city's "bubble" law.

Outraged doesn't begin to describe my level of anger toward this situation.
