Time for Poland to declare war on Russia?

Of course they won't do it... but the fact that Ukrainian separatist terrorists are going around shooting down innocent civilian planes - that just makes no sense.

Then there's Israel and Hamas.  Hamas launches rockets into Israel, Israel fights back, and Israel gets the blame?   Well, it's because Israel's weapons are more efficient than Hamas's - but because of that they're not supposed to use them?

It's like we're in the Twilight Zone....

Joe BIden's (latest) Gaffe

What happened to Obama's "hope and change"?

The below two paragraphs are from the Washington Free Beacon:

The “Hope and Change” promised by Barack Obama and Joe Biden in 2008 “didn’t happen,” according to none other than Biden himself during a speech Wednesday.
Everybody says because we tried in ’08 and it didn’t happen, it’s not possible,” Biden said. “Wrong. We’ve gone through these periods before … Folks, this is totally within our power. Change for the better is absolutely possible, and I believe it’s close to inevitable if you’re the drivers of it.”
National Journal’s Ron Fournier on Thursday argued Biden saying this was a “really bad moment for the White House.”
“He basically conceded the original sin of the Obama presidency which is we promised to at least start changing Washington and we failed. And then later on what he does say? We can change things if we’re the drivers of the change. Well, who has been driving the last five and a half years? It was a really bad moment for the White House,” Fournier said on CNN’s New Day.

Where is the gaffe here? *He's* not saying hope and change didn't happen, he's saying that others - probably African Americans as poor now as they were then - are saying it didn't happen.

Sure would like to see those two sentences in CONTEXT!

OT: Need a plumber in Washington state?

I was talking to a friend in Mason County, WA yesterday, and he was mentioning that he'd been searching for plumbers in Mason County and plumbers in Pierce County, just to check out their services.

Plumbers do much more than just clean out your toilets or pump out your septic tank, they'll find your sewer lines, repair your sewer lines, practically everything that needs to be plumbed, a plumber will do.

I wonder if its better to stick with a plumber who only works in one town, or if a company that is so big that it has practically a franchise would be the way to go. For example these folks my friend was looking at - and found, when he searched for plumbers in Mason County.  (Why he was looking for plumbers in Pierce Country, too, I do not know!)

In any event, if you live in Washington and are looking for plumbers in Mason County.

John Kerry had a point...

Rush mocked John Kerry yesterday..

Rush is always talking about American exceptionalism... and it used to be true (today you gotta wonder though...)

This is what Rush said and then Kerry's quote:

Lurch: American Exceptionalism Talk Makes Me Uptight
RUSH: Now, the John Kerry quote: "...I was privileged to speak to the graduating class of Yale this year, and it was particularly a pleasure because it happened to turn out to be, literally -- I hate to say it -- 48 years to the day that I was privileged to speak as a graduating senior to my own class. ... I get always a little uptight when I hear politicians say how exceptional we are -- not because we're not exceptional, but because it's kind of in-your-face and a lot of other people are exceptional. A lot of other places do exceptional things."
Of course he does, because these people are laden with self-hatred and self-guilt over what they consider their good fortune to be.  

Rush is totally mischaracterizing what Kerry said.

I mean, come on, talk about Ugly Americans.

You go to some other country and say, "Look, America is exceptional, and you guys stink"  Then you try to give them advice on how to deal with their minority problem...or their drug problem... and they look at you and say, "Yeah, your African Americans are real happy" or "The US has more people imprisoned for drug offenses than the rest of the world combined."

Announcing the Crowdfunding Clarion!

I've started a new blog to help give some publicity to folks seeking crowdfunding on such sits as Kickstarter, IndieGoGo, GoFundMe, and various regional, country-specific sites (to which I think international people can donate.)

I thought these illegal kids were being deported?

Turns out they're being placed with families in a variety of states... I wonder if they're being placed with white families or Latino families...

The governor of Nebraska was livid when he found out that a whole slew of these children crossing the border are being dumped in his state and nobody told him, he didn't know.  That was the sound bite.  And it's happening to a lot of governors.  They're not being told.  That Border Patrol and Homeland Security and whoever it is, these companies the Regime has hired to handle transportation logistics, they're just dumping these kids. They're dumping them with families, I mean, they're dumping them in houses and homes.  They're not dumping 'em on the street, but the governors of these states do not know it.

There's a story about this today at National Review Online, Jim Geraghty's column.  Obama's Feds secretly inserting what are essentially illegal alien invasion forces into the states and not telling state authorities.  And there's a link to the study or the report.  We had the sound bite from the governor yesterday.  Now, there's a dot here that is not being connected.  You remember me telling you, and I interviewed this guy for the Limbaugh Letter. Stanley Kurtz of National Review wrote a book on his demographic study of what he says is Obama's war on America's suburbs.  And there is a related initiative at Housing and Urban Development called AFFH, Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing.
Now, Kurtz's theory is -- and you know that leftists are very upset at what they think is the unfairness and the disparity between city dwellers and suburban.  They think suburban dwellers are basically effete, elite, upper middle class rich snobs who fled the filthy confines of the city to escape it, leaving behind the poor and the disadvantaged to wallow in the garbage.  And this isn't fair.
So Kurtz has a theory that Obama has a war on the suburbs to take people from the inner city and put them in the suburbs via affordable housing right in these suburban neighborhoods.  It is happening, and I will take a break and explain it in a moment.
RUSH:  Stanley Kurtz said in his interview with me in the Limbaugh Letter, as well as in his book, that this transformation of the suburbs would be a major tenet of Obama's second term.
Now, when did this border crisis start?  Second term.  What do we have?  We're being overrun.  There's no end in sight, by the way, and the news is that there's no end in sight.  The governments of Mexico and Guatemala are facilitating the trip north by these kids.  There's no end to this, folks.  Nobody's trying to stop it.  Obama's not trying to stop it.  The Republicans aren't trying to stop it.
