OUR POLITICALLY-CORRECT AIR FORCE …
THE HILDABEAST – STILL IN DEMAND …
MORE BASIC POLITICAL TRUTHS

In the news ...
     "Commanders and supervisors in all corners of the Air Force will conduct a widespread sweep of all work spaces and public areas, looking for pictures, calendars and other materials that objectify women.

     
"Pictures of scantily clad women in calendars, posters or in briefing slides have no place in a professional workplace, said Chief of Staff Gen. Mark Welsh."
Of course, given present politically-correct trends, we can expect the next order will mandate pictures of scantily-clad men.

Why big government keeps getting bigger, despite debt and deficits ...
     Seventy-three percent of the new civilian jobs created in the United States over the last five months are in government, according to official data published by the Bureau of Labor Statistics. (CNS News)

If Hillary runs for president, as surveys of Democrat opinion indicate she should, I can confidently predict two words that will never be uttered or written by Big Media "reporters."
     Vince. Foster.
     A woman who rode her husband's coattails thru a shady law career and questionable investment opportunities (think cattle futures) and a political career whose "highlights" included making a fool of herself pressing a misspelled (in Russian) "re-set" button and hiding from charges that she bore some responsibility for the lack of security that got the U.S. ambassador to Libya murdered ...
     ... that this person is somehow qualified to be president is an idea so absurd it could only be held by the stupid human cattle who raised a subversive, anti-American nonentity to the highest office in the land. The same kind of Democrats who are clamoring for Michelle Obama to run for the U.S. Senate from Illinois.

John Ransom (Townhall.com) blows the whistle on another Obama boondoggle …

    “
A Congressional Budget Office report released in the fall tells Obama what the rest of us have known for some time: Your bet on electric cars wasn’t an investment, but a gamble; a dumb gamble.
    “
That’s because electric cars don’t save gas, they don’t save money and they don’t save the 'planet.'
    “
'Assuming that everything else is equal' says the CBO, 'the larger an electric vehicle’s battery capacity, the greater its cost disadvantage relative to conventional vehicles—and thus the larger the tax credit needed to make it cost-competitive.'
    “
Three months ago industry insiders revealed that General Motors was taking a loss of around $50,000 per Chevy Volt sold. That was assuming a sales price without the new and improved $10k discount. If you add in the $7,500 government subsidy, the Volt’s cost to the consumer is around $22,500. Cost to the taxpayers is much, much higher.”
    Footnote: Now Obama wants to put more taxpayer money into research to develop a better battery for electric cars. Obviously, if such a project had a predictable – and profitable – market, wouldn't it make sense for private companies to eagerly pursue such a project and the potential goldmine from patents? This is about funneling more money to politically-favored friends.

Today's political dictionary ...
     "Investment" -- Favorite Obama term meaning, "We want to collect more taxpayer dollars to give to my big-money Obama supporters. They will invest it in blue-sky projects like Solyndra while pocketing large sums with no financial risk to themselves. Meantime, they will funnel a substantial portion of those taxpayer dollars back into my campaign fund or other personal rewards."

Another fact of bureaucratic life that Democrats never learn: Any government agency created to solve a problem is highly UNlikely to ever solve it, simply because doing so would render the agency unnecessary and its personnel unemployed.

Valuable insights from the invaluable Burt Prelutsky ...
     "Why do Obama and the flakier environmentalists oppose oil derricks, but promote windmills? Oil is not only a far better and more reliable source of energy than wind, but they don’t massacre birds by the thousands. When there’s an occasional oil spill and it gets goo on seagulls, these people become as crazed as the loons at PETA; but when windmills mutilate even protected classes of birds, such as eagles, you don’t hear a peep out of them.
     "Some two thousand years ago, Marcus Tullius Cicero wrote 76 words that might have been written (about Obama) yesterday: 'Do not blame Caesar, blame the people of Rome who have so enthusiastically acclaimed and adored him and rejoiced in their loss of freedom and danced in his path and given him triumphal processions. Blame the people who hail him when he speaks in the Forum of the new wonderful good society which shall now be Rome’s, interpreted to mean more money, more ease, more security, and more living fatly at the expense of the industrious.'
     "For a long time, I was also puzzled by the fact that so many liberals sided with Muslims, treating them with the sort of respect generally reserved for such sacred cows as urban blacks, illegal aliens and the New York Times editorial board. After all, these are people whose religion promotes intolerance in the extreme. Free speech, women’s rights, gay rights, democracy, and even science and art, are all alien concepts everywhere in the Middle East except in Israel. Over the past three decades, except in a few isolated instances, every act of terrorism in the world can be traced to these barbarians."

Argus Hamilton --
     "North Korea announced plans to test-fire a long-range nuclear missile that can reach the West Coast. Their past efforts all ended in failure. They also built a nuclear bomb that can fit into a suitcase and be smuggled into this country but the airlines keep losing it."

It's the time of year -- and NFL season -- when rumors are rife about which football coaches could/should/will be fired after the last game.
     What's surprising is the utter silence about NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell possibly being fired by HIS bosses, the team owners.
     He hasn't had a good year. First, the fines and suspensions handed out to New Orleans players and coaches, some of which he later rescinded, making him widely disliked around the league. Then his latest silliness, advocating the abolition of the kickoff which would mean killing the most unpredictable and exciting element in the game, the kickoff RETURN. Dumb. Really, really dumb.

News bulletin: Lobsters practice cannibalism!
That should absolve us of any guilt the next time we devour one of the murderous little SOBs. Just think, "Serves him right!"

 Jay Leno --

     "
The engagement between 86-year-old Hugh Hefner and his 26-year-old girlfriend Crystal Harris is back on. I don’t want to say that Hefner is old, but the ring boy is Larry King. I guess she has agreed to sign a pre-nup, but only if he agrees to sign the 'do not resuscitate'” order.
