"I've noticed how liberals ALWAYS want proof..." (1.1MB graphic)

So ends this beautiful Facebook thread in which a very dear friend of mine completely shut down an OP whining about how the Obama regime is fixing gas prices.

My pal doesn't usually end up in FB discussions like this, but sometimes the temptation to watch a few mental circuits go pop-sputter-kaploing is just too great. My friend, one "Darren Cassidy" comes in near the end...

The truly sad part is that fact-proof people like the OP are getting ready to fight.

Banker Leaves 1% Tip On $133 Lunch Bill In Defiance of 'The 99%'

Typical. I used to sling coffee in SF's financial district (Half-decaf nonfat latte with extra foam and some child's tears). The only thing new here is the brazen elitism.


Clown Car Strategy?

The GOP Primaries.

While this big obnoxious reality show is going on, the GOP is quietly working on their real objective: taking over the Senate and keeping the house... and it's an easily achievable goal -- especially if nobody's watching.

The Democrats are defending 24 seats in the Senate.

The GOP has TOTAL control of gerrymandering (remapping congressional districts) in 15 states. Of the 113 seats in the House that will be up for grabs in 2012, the Democrats currently hold 44 and must gain 25.

It would make the GOP vary happy if we all just continue to watch their clown car. Then in January 2013 we can watch for the next 4 years as a united Congress spends all of its time on impeachment hearings; crashes-and-burns the Federal Government; publicly hangs responsibility around the neck of an "ineffective" Democratic President and, thanks to the passage of NDAA; takes the White House back in 2016 with the tools for a military dictatorship already in place.

Ever play Sid Meier's "Civilization?" If your citizens start gettin' rowdy, you can change your government to despotism with one click.

Anyway, here's some fun info if anyone is interested:
