Christine O’Donnell has become the talk of the nation; the “Tea Party” candidate O’Donnell beat Mike Castle in the Delaware Republican primary for the upcoming Delaware Senate Seat. Mike Castle who has been the nominal Republican senator since George Washington became the nation’s first president was supposed to be a shoo-in, so the Republican National Committee was extremely displeased that their comfortable little arrangement was upset by Christine O’Donnell who actually believes in smaller government rather than Mike Castle who spoke one way then played footsie with his more popular liberal, Democrat friends on the other side of the isle.
According to the “establishment political talking heads” like Karl Rove, James “The Snakehead” Carville and Chrissy Matthews, the only chance a Republican has to win in a state like Delaware is to be more — how does one say this delicately — to be more Democrat. So voters in Delaware should have two options: liberal REAL Democrats or soft, squishy FAKE Democrats called Republicans or Democrats Lite.
Rove’s head has nearly exploded from the apostacy caused by O’Donnell’s win in Delaware since now the Republicans will surely “lose” the election to her Democrat challenger Chris Coons. The reason is simple in Rove’s opinion: Christine O’Donnell is “too radical,” meaning she actually believes that government should be smaller, and in the world of the “established political elite” only O’Donnell is considered the “radical” against Coons who once called himself a “bearded Marxist.” Only in their world could a strict Constitutionalist be considered a “radical” while someone who once wrote a college article, entitled: “Chris Coons: The Making of a Bearded Marxist” is considered mainstream!
Bill Maher, that delightful fruitcake “comedian” and political pundit, started playing a 13-year-old interview of O’Donnell who is a Christian, saying that as a teenager, she once dabbled in witchcraft. He is using this clip as a way to blackmail her into making an appearance on his show; considering Maher, it’s no wonder he feels that he has to blackmail people to appear on his show.
The joke is on Bill Maher, however, since O’Donnell’s dabbling in the “dark side” should give her an amazing advantage in dealing with establishment politicians and those in the media who would love to bring her down — after all, one should know one’s enemy. In the end, it will take one reformed good witch to bring down the dark side — a la Harry Potter.
Whether O’Donnell wins or loses, however, at least the people of Delaware finally have a choice between two distinct candidates: one who believes in the Constitution, smaller government and free-markets or “the bearded Marxist.”
Ironic that in the Age of Obama’s Hope and Change and the socialization of the US economy, Communist Fidel Castro pronounced that Cuba’s economic system, i.e., socialism/communism “doesn’t even work for us anymore.” Furthermore, Communist Cuba has announced plans to lay off at least 500,000 government workers — nearly 10% of the total workforce! — by April 2011, forcing those workers to find employment in the now-practically non-existent “private sector.” Cuba has declared that this number will likely be increased to 1 million government workers of jobs shed by the overbloated Cuban government.
“Our state cannot and should not continue supporting businesses, production entities and services with inflated payrolls, and losses that hurt our economy [and] are ultimately counterproductive, creating bad habits and distorting worker conduct,” Cuba’s Communist union said!
Amazing to consider this is a communist union talking about “inflated payrolls” and “counterproductive…bad habits”! The world has certainly changed when the US could take economic lessons from Communist Castro’s Cuba!
As the US marches headlong into a top-down, government nanny state including the crown jewel of Obama’s reign, the recently passed socialized healthcare debacle aka “ObamaCare,” Castro’s Cuba is shedding huge numbers of government workers and dialing it back, acknowledging the importance and role of the free market. To add insult to injury, Castro made it clear that the Cuban people “must stop expecting too much from the government, which provides free education and health care.”
Next up: Obama, Pelossi, Reid, Oliver Stone and Michael Moore organize a beer summit to commisserate and cry over a drink or two – assuming, of course, that the US taxpayers pick up the tab.

As a follow-up to a previous post “As California Goes…So Goes the Nation,” California continues on its bender, spending like a drunken sailor (no offense to drunken sailors), going from a reputation for hot tubs with buxom babes in string bikinis to cauldrons of swirling bankruptcy, spiced with third-world political intrigue, stirred by Nancy Pelosi hovering on her trusty broomstick.
“Toil, toil, toil and freebies, bail-outs and hand-outs, let the contagions and stench from Cali roil and rot o’er the rest — coast to coast,” the crooked, wart-nosed hag cackles.
Time seems to blur that innocuous era in which greasy-haired, Mother Jones-subscribing women in tie-dye and Birkenstocks sold incense sticks, macrame dream-catchers and copies of “Dreams of My Father” (or was that slogans by Malcolm X?) from the back of VW busses plastered with bumperstickers like “Make Love Not War,” “Bush is a Nazi” or some other meaningful phrase (made more meaningful after snorting a tube of modeling glue, no doubt).
The slogan was always “vote local, think global” as if growing, buying or just eating organic, locally grown fruits and vegetables was one’s SEIU union card to the politically correct crowd and voting for the nation’s next messianic leader.
Speaking of local, it is time to snap out of the euphoria of one’s stupour of choice and consider Bell, California, a working class neighborhood just south of Azatlan’s Capital City of Los Angeles, California. In the past few weeks, it was discovered that the city of Bell (population: 40,000) had a city manager, Robert Rizzo, earning an eye-popping $787,000 annual salary. City council members were earning well over $100,000 annually. Bell’s police chief earned $457,000 a year which is 50% HIGHER than the salary of LA’s chief of police or county sheriff. Bell’s police chief oversees fewer than 30 employees yet the LA police chief has 10,000.
Not only are these salaries amazingly high, they are all eligible for retirement benefits of 90% of their annual salary after they retire … until they meet their demise and meet their maker — the Great Horned One with the Pitch Fork and Screaming Assistants.
Little working-class Bell is merely a bell weather (pardon the pun) of what is happening in the rest of the State of California as well as the rest of the nation — the real money to be made now is working for the government, and for those who aren’t a part of the ruling-class elite and still fortunately retain their God-given common sense, there is no doubt where the government “makes” its money — off of the backs of the private-sector tax-payers in the form of taxes.
At the rate government employees are “compensated,” California needs to generate LOTS and LOTS of taxes. It is apparently time for the rest of us schlepps to get another job to support our “public servants.”
And what political party are the City of Bell’s elected officials? They must be all democrats. Why draw that conclusion? The reason to draw that conclusion is that there has been absolutely NO mention of their political affiliation by the “LA Times,” “The New York Times” or any of the other tv “news” programs, collectively known as the “Alpha-Bet Soup Channels,” so one can deduce that they were all democrats; if one or more had been Republicans, one would see “Republican” boldly inserted every other word in their reportage.
In fact, as it turns out, this assertion is correct — only one newspaper in Orange County, CA bothered to report the political affiliations of these crooks. It turns out all of them are Democrats including Bell’s state legislators, Congressman (Lucille Roybal-Allard) and California’s two senators (Boxer and Feinstein).
Conveniently, the DNC propaganda machine, otherwise known as the “main stream media,” only fail to report a Republican’s political affiliation when such a Republican happens to be, say, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., his father, Martin Luthin King, Senior, or his niece, Alveda King, who spoke on Saturday, 08/28/2010 at Glenn Beck’s get-together in Washington, D.C., drawing approximately 500,000 Americans of every race, political party and religious affiliation — no doubt, all of this will be conveniently absent from the coverage of Aging Cheerleader Katie Couric, Brian Williams or Diane Sawyer.
