So now saying the president is running an angry campaign is racist code.
That makes me kind of angry.
Oops. Now I’m engaging in the niggerization of myself.
So, does that make me a self-hating racist?
In order to protect porn stars from themselves, the city of Los Angeles has implemented a condom law. Now how do you enforce the law?
Faced with a new law requiring condoms during porn shoots, Los Angeles officials have recommended that Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and the City Council begin searching for a medical professional to conduct inspections of adult film performances.
In a report issued Wednesday, a working group focused on ways to enforce the new condom ordinance said Film L.A. Inc., the office that processes film permits, should rework its applications so passages that discuss hazardous working conditions and dangerous special effects also mention the “transmission of blood and infectious materials.”
Still unclear is the amount of the inspection fee that would be charged by the city to adult film producers. The working group asked officials at the Fire Department to come up with an estimate if they were charged with the task and was informed the cost could range from $2,204 to $3,472, Santana said.
Depending on the number of film shoots and the frequency of the spot checks, the task could require more than 100 full-time Fire Department employees and cost more than $1.7 million, officials said.
“It’s hard to establish what the fee should be until we know the actual cost of providing the inspections,” Santana said.
It couldn’t be some run of the mill pervert doing this job.
It will take a health care professional. Imagine going to school for all those years, working all those hours, and the job you get is inspecting porn shoots.
Skip from Granite Grok had a sweet setup at the Defending the American Dream Summit and asked if I would like to do a quick interview.
It lasts all three videos:
So, did I at least give the impression that I have coherent thought?

[Folks] waiting to see Paul Ryan at Miami University in Ohio. Click to see it full size so you can see how far it stretches.
Paul Ryan has energized the base, something Romney couldn’t.
That’s why he terrifies the left. That’s why he was a brilliant choice.
Stories like this make be believe people who say, “The Founding Fathers would be shooting by now!”
Martha Boneta owns a small farm in Fauquier County, Virginia, where she recently hosted a birthday party for eight 10-year-old girls. They wore hats, picked veggies, and made goat’s milk soap. The county says she should have obtain a license before hosting such an event and hit her with a $5,000 fine.
Boneta also got slammed with two more fines for $5,000 each, one for advertising a pumpkin carving and another for violations in the small shop on her property. Boneta sells produce from her farm, as well as eggs, yarn, birdhouses, and local crafts. She sought and received a license for the shop in 2011, but the county now says she can’t sell handiwork or produce from her neighbors under that license.
So in Fauquier County, Virginia, you cannot sell produce that you grow on your own land and you cannot hold a birthday party for a friend’s daughter without direct permission from the government. And unauthorized pumpkin carving carries a $5,000 fine.
Why do we still call ourselves a free country?
Maybe because the people can still protest the fines and elect new members to the board. At least, I think they can.
Maybe that carries a fine also.
Yesterday, Al Sharpton destroyed Paul Ryan‘s credibility with a scathing diatribe on his failures in Congress and his proclivity for working out. Watch the brutality for yourself. I don’t think I can stomach it again:
I was ready to jettison the whole campaign because of this hard hitting bit of investigative journalism, but then I read this:
Even the president needs a post-Iowa State Fair workout.
So the morning after stopping at the fair, ordering a beer and eating a pork chop – the two totaled about 500 calories- President Obama stopped at Aspen Active, 4549 Fleur Drive, for an hour-long session.
The fitness club’s manager said Obama arrived around 7:30 a.m. and ran on the treadmill and did resistance training, before his motorcade departed.
He insisted on paying the $10 one-day entry fee, said manager Matthew Doughty.

What ever should we do now? It turns out the president is working on his abs too?
DOESN’T ANYONE CARE ABOUT THE COUNTRY?
Newt Gingrich don’t want no scrubs, a scrub is a guy who can’t think outside the Democrat talking points…
(it’s a work in progress…here’s the video)
PIERS MORGAN, HOST: I suppose the fundamental debate that’s going to be had, though, will come down to whether the Republicans can sell to the American people that they are really concerned about jobs, about people’s livelihoods, and all the rest of it. If they’re also scratching the backs of their rich and wealthy members, which is clearly I think the flaw in the Ryan plan is that it just does. I mean, if you’re very wealthy, you’re going to be doing a lot better out of Paul Ryan than you would out of Barack Obama who believes fundamentally the rich should pay more tax.
NEWT GINGRICH: You know, I don’t want to sound disrespectful, but I do wonder sometimes if you guys all get off in a little club and learn a brand new mantra and then all repeat it mindlessly. The fact is, these kinds of things were said about Ronald Reagan. Ronald Reagan’s tax cut – which was developed by Jack Kemp who Paul Ryan worked for – Ronald Reagan’s tax cut raised more people to middle class status, took more people out of poverty, created more jobs.
You know, this is the core thing that liberals don’t get. If you want to have jobs, you have to encourage job creators. If you discourage job creators, if you engage in class warfare, if you do what Barack Obama’s been doing, you have what we currently have. This is the worst recovery in 75 years.
Now, nobody in the media seems to want to come to grips with the fact that the Obama economic policy is a disaster for the poor. Look at the unemployment rate for black teenagers. Look at the unemployment rate for Latino teenagers. At what point do we hold the president accountable for a policy which is crippling the poor in America by crushing the economy under big government?
Ryan and Romney represent a different approach. And I think there’s this mantra you guys almost sound like you’re an extension of the Obama campaign. The Ryan/Romney plan empowers middle class Americans to get a job. When they get a job, their income goes up. They pay more taxes. They are independent. They’re able to live their own lives.
Obama worries about student loans. None of those students are going to get any jobs under Obama. Ryan and Romney are worried about getting jobs for those students so they can pay off the Obama loans.
I think this is a fundamentally different model, and I know everybody in the media wants to rush down and narrow it down to one point. So I’m going to rush down and narrow it down to one point: how long are we going to tolerate a president who makes the poorest Americans more unemployed, who pushes more poor Americans on to food stamps, and who eliminates hope for minorities? And that’s the Barack Obama record after four years.

It’s depressing to think that the line, “if you’re very wealthy, you’re going to be doing a lot better out of Paul Ryan than you would out of Barack Obama who believes fundamentally the rich should pay more tax,” is a rallying cry for the party of Thomas Jefferson. This isn’t the party of Jefferson, it’s the party of Marx.
Newt leveled up during this clip, I think. He was already Epic level, but he clearly applied some skill points to “Liberal Smackdown” towards the end.
