    Still feeling happy because the Marxists lost the election. There is a lot of sour grapes going on and the bashing has not stopped.

    I might end up writing this one up on my own blog but for now I will give you a part of the story. There is a man by the name of Steve Bracks who was appointed by the outgoing government to be High Commissioner in New York. He was a former Premier of Victoria and he is corrupt as far as I am concerned. He is the one who gave Juliar Gillard a job after she was fired from Slater and Gordon… but that is only a miniscule part of the full story. In othe words Bracks was getting one of those jobs for the boys, a reward. Well, the incoming government has already served noticed that the appointment will be canceled, and yes they did warn them back in April that is what they would do over this appointment. Now the Marxists are crying like the stuffed pigs that they are because Julie Bishop has given notice of the cancelation of the appointment. What spoiled little brat children!!

    Also, I found out that the Coalition had a document re the personality disorder of KRUDD. You would recognize those traits because Barry has the same symptoms for narcissistic personality disorder. It is only now, after discovering this information that a few things dropped into place. In particular some statements such as “Now the adults are in charge”, stuff like that was a hint of what they knew and how they were playing Mr. Rude.

    • Spoiled children, liars, thieves and hypocrites; that’s them all right. I’m confused about one thing. This Steve Bracks guy’s job in New York that was a reward; is that an “ambassador” job? Is “High Commissioner” similar to UN Ambassador? Or was he the ambassador to the U.S.?

      • Aussie says:

        It would be similar to an ambassador. The role is in New York, not D.C. Not sure he would be considered Ambassador to the U.S. but also not to the U.N.

      • Aussie says:

        the correct term is Consul-General.

        There is some more information to be had because Steve Bracks was busy campaigning against the incoming government. They had every right to tell him that he was not to take up the position.

        • Of course, but when have you ever known leftists to go quietly or comport themselves with any dignity at all? It’s not in their political DNA.

          • Aussie says:

            I know…
            …. but stand by because there is more to be revealed about Steve Bracks, his relationship with Juliar Gillard the tramp, cronyism and corruption. It is all about the AWU scandal and beyond.

            This remains a developing story because we have managed to get beyond the original scandal to find some very interesting links especially to climate change hysteria that leads to pigs in the trough.

    America, we must stop ObamaCare before it becomes hazardous to our health

    Last month DD had her annual checkup. Her pediatrician brought up Obamacare. She said that she couldn’t even begin to tell us all the rules and regulations that are hidden in that monstrosity. She told us that now EVERY child in the U.S. is required to have a physical EVERY YEAR and ALL the paperwork has to be submitted to HHS. Everything has to be in electronic form and every pediatrician’s office has to provide medical records proving each patient has been to the doctor at least once a year from his/her birth. She says that even though it’s been a little easy on them since they’ve always kept everything electronically, she knows that some offices in rural areas do not. I forgot the date that she said that they are required to comply, but she said it’s not pretty if an office doesn’t comply by that date. She also went on and on about Congress exempting itself from Obamacare. She’s an Independent but she says she recognizes incompetence when she see it.

    Business Owners May Face $100-Per-Day Penalty Under ObamaCare

    “Beginning Oct. 1, any business with at least one employee and $500,000 in annual revenue must notify all employees by letter about the Affordable Care Act’s health-care exchanges, or face up to a $100-per-day fine.”

  4. Bonanza! Country saved by Jimmy Kimmel! Young people forced to be skeptical of what they see. Obama’s days are numbered.

    Happy birthday to the king! Arnold Palmer turns 84 today. 🙂 One of the good guys.

    Flailing Obama slumps to lowest ratings of his presidency, as US voters see him as ‘a weak and indecisive leader’

    Unfortunately, all the low info voters that I talk to think he’s doing a great job.

  7. What message to the troops, Barry? One BILLION in aid to Syrian factions while cutting pay (raises) to U.S. soldiers.

    Rock it like it’s 1986. Don’t know if I could do this, but a great idea if you’ve got young’uns. 🙂

    • barnslayer says:

      Sounds like a good idea but I dunno. I’ll have to mullet over.

    • freedom1781 says:

      I could sort of see myself doing something like that minus the 80s fashion.

      My sisters make fun of Hubby and me over how we’re raising our daughter and how we live. We just got Wi-fi in February, we used dial-up for the longest time. We use a burner cell phone (no wireless plan for us!), still have a land line, don’t have satellite or cable t.v., drove older cars and live very simply. (The only 2 things we all have in common is our love for vegetable gardening and thrift store shopping.) My daughter did not watch television until age 2; now that she’s older we limit how many hours she sits in front of the t.v. and are strict on what she watches. We work outside a lot and she’s always there helping out; she’s not afraid to get her hands dirty. She’s only allowed to play on my computer if I’m sitting beside her and it’s usually educational games with some Barbie or My Little Pony stuff thrown in. No tablets for her even though she says she wants one, only because of the kids at school bragging about theirs.

      • Little girls really go for that My Little Pony stuff, don’t they? 😀

        • freedom1781 says:

          That’s disturbing.. ^^^^

          • And life in America goes on with the majority filling their minds to capacity with music, movies, soap operas, filth, gambling, gossiping, trends of the hour (DAY OR MONTH), sports, and ……. Everything that is not all bad in of itself but if not done in moderation (except those things which we should not take part of PERIOD) fills our senses to the fullest and leaves exactly no room for the Spirit of God in our lives. Give in to what our bodies want and makes us weak!

    Pelosi: Thanks to Obama’s Strength, We Have Russian Proposal

    Right on cue!

  11. Well, I owe Ann Barnhardt an apology. In the past, in other conversations, I’ve harshly criticized her for making irresponsible, sweeping accusations about large groups without acknowledging the exceptions. She claims frequently, for example, that all U.S. military officers are cowards for not resigning their commissions a long time ago, when some have done just that, Lt. Col. Terry Lakin being the most infamous. The truth is, we have no idea how many have quietly done the same. Many have undoubtedly suffered for doing so, perhaps on the same level as Lakin without it being covered widely by the national press. She’s also accused every single member of Congress of being corrupt, “without exception.” I believe she should admit that there may be, at least, one or two who are not total degenerates. Maybe. 😉

    But just yesterday, she offered a perfectly good apology to Terry Lakin on her blog after she failed to mention him as an example during a recent interview. It’s the first time I’ve noticed her apologize this way, but it may not be the first time in reality, since I don’t always keep up with her posts.

    “I erred in my recent interview with Elijah Jonson when I said that not a single man in the US Military was willing to stand up and call out the Obama regime. LTC Terry Lakin did it. And Terry spent five months in the Disciplinary Barracks at Ft. Leavenworth. But beyond that, he lost his pension. As a Lieutenant Colonel flight surgeon, that loss in lifetime benefits was estimated at over $2.5 million – and that was for a field grade reservist. I apologize to LTC Dr. Lakin for my mistake.”

    Well done, Ann.

  12. This story has been going around, and I can’t remember where I saw it late last night, but it’s very interesting. Notice the date. The Mail wrote about this back in January. Suspicious in light of recent events? You bet.

      I’m generally not a person that indulges in “Hate” . . .
      . . . but . . .

      Well, if the Ruskies kidnapped the Prez and cabinet and held them for ransom, I’d laugh and go on a shopping blitz . ..

  13. This one’s for you, Bob. “Grammar Gestapo.” Heh! 😀

  14. What A Hoot says:

    Here is a good one for you all. I know this young man and he ain’t no racist. When I heard about this story I went and googled it. ex., I noticed each of the articles would not put the offending quote in the article for people to judge for themselves. Finally it was located deep in a comment section where someone was thoughtful enough to include. Here it is….ready for some real racism?

    “I hate when Chinese people make me write emails in Asian speak. They think they know English better than me. #childish.”

    • Oh brother. 🙄 He really got in trouble for that? In Indiana?

      • What A Hoot says:

        Ball State, so yep, in Indiana. What is more of a story is how many articles for this story when google but none of them include the derogatory remark. Of course not, because it is not derogatory!

      • texan59 says:

        Gotta remember – even though this is in Indiana, pretty much the thought police have taken over almost all academia. Prolly get in trouble just like this at your and my alma mater’s just the same.
