The Lefty Tolerance and Civility Police have a long list of Politically Incorrect words, phrases and actions … but there is one minority they have No Problemo with people bashing.
You can’t make fun of Muslims cuz that would be “disrespectful” … but boy oh boy … put a crucifix in a jar of urine and they’ll call it “artistic expression.” Even better, pee on a religious picture and do an entire sit com about some foolish Catholic woman who thinks the pee is miraculous tears.
The latest So What’s the Big Deal? shrug is over this abomination:
Luke Tobias, director of operations at Kuma’s Corner, said he is baffled that Catholics are upset.
“We didn’t expect this reaction. Apparently, today, someone’s coming out to do a rosary prayer over our restaurant,” Tobias said. “We’ve done plenty of burgers named after fairly controversial bands in the past to seemingly no visible effect. It’s based on a band, just like every other burger on our menu.”
Seriously? You don’t get why this is offensive? Here’s a thought … do a burger that’s offensive to Muslims. You won’t be getting people saying rosaries for you, I can guarantee that.
I googled “Ambert Alert” and got http://www.amberalert.gov/ which is described as “a site by the Department of Justice that provides information on AMBER alerts, Public Service Announcements, a child safety guide, news, and a tool kit for …” Clicking on it got me:
Clearly, all that “if it saves just one child” was just hot air … and not the kind that comes out of a person’s MOUTH.
I can see not maintaining a nonessential website, but why do they need to shut it down completely? It doesn’t need anybody there to be seen and navigated, does it? I have a website. It’s there all the time, regardless of whether I bother to update it.
How many barricades would the administration have had to not put up in order to afford to keep the Amber Alert Web site operating?
The National Park Service informed watermen that they are not permitted in Florida Bay until the feds get back to work. That means that more than 1,100 square miles of prime fishing is off limits, affecting tour operators and fishing and paddling guides. Enforcement rangers will be on duty.
Troops deployed to fight Obama’s War in Afghanistan won’t get to watch their games either. President Petty Pants isn’t allowing Armed Forces Network to broadcast American sports overseas.
At home, military cemeteries and memorials are barricaded AND the commissaries where military families buy groceries at a discount are shut down.
Guess what ONE non-essential military facility is NOT closed down … go ahead. I’ll give you ONE GUESS. … President Obama’s favorite 18 holes – the Andrew’s Air Force Base Golf Course – is OPEN.
They say it’s because the golf course is paid for by green’s fees. Riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight. Just like how Mount Vernon and a bunch of other places they’ve shut down are funded. And how about the commissaries? You telling me the money the families spend there doesn’t PAY FOR THOSE PLACES?
Thanks to President Stompy Foot, elderly residents were given 24 hours notice before being forced out of their private homes on Lake Mead. They own the homes, but the land is federal. The order affected some 60 families.
Obama’s and Biden’s homes are not just on federal land, but are owned by the government. Just saying.
On Twitter, President Petty-Pants’ behavior has sparked a new name for the federally-owned structure wherein he apparently plans to reside for life … The Spite House.

Oct 5, 2013: In Washington, D.C., a citizen tried to take his usual run along an open-air path and was greeted with barriers, a turned off water fountain and a pushy cop. “I asked him, ‘Why do you have to put your hands on me and push me out when I’m leaving anyways?’ He replied, ‘It’s quicker this way.'”
Oct. 5, 2013: At the open-air Vietnam Memorial, our “closed due to lack of money” government assigned cops AND A DOG to guard the barricaded entrance to a space that is ordinarily unmanned 24/7.
We need a new Occupy movement – patriots occupying their national parks and war memorials until President Hissy Fit relents.
Oct 5, 2013: In California today, it became legal for aliens residing in the U.S. illegally to practice law. (I am not making this up.) Maybe when Oblamer arrests us, some of those illegal legal lawyers can represent us pro bono seeing as they no doubt qualify for food stamps and free health care.
I have not been able to find where the Senate has taken any vote on this. But it’s the week-end. Democrats apparently don’t work week-ends … or holidays. Not even when there’s an international crisis. Remember the Fourth of July when Egypt was burning and SecState Kerry was spotted on his yacht off Nantucket?
So … is it true that priests could face arrest for saying Mass on base while furloughed? There’s been a lot of mis-information thrown around about this, so here’s the best info I’ve found:
31 USC 1342 says “An officer or employee of the United States Government or of the District of Columbia government may not accept voluntary services for either government or employ personal services exceeding that authorized by law except for emergencies involving the safety of human life or the protection of property.”
Penalties for violating 31 USC 1342 are spelled out in 31 USC 1350: “An officer or employee of the United States Government or of the District of Columbia government knowingly and willfully violating section 1341(a) or 1342 of this title shall be fined not more than $5,000, imprisoned for not more than 2 years, or both.”
So yes, priests can be arrested if they defy the furlough and say Mass on base.
Yet another open-aid monument to America’s finest has been “shut down” because President Petty-Pants is an effing schmuck.
UNBELIEVABLE Police force Vietnam veterans to vacate Vietnam Veterans Memorial [:57]
The Vietnam Veterans Memorial requires absolutely no security. As John McCormack commented, “It takes more manpower and costs the government more money to close down an outdoor wall than to let people walk past it and pay their respects.”
