Comey Fired

Posted by Troy on 9th May 2017 in Current Events, Political

So, the Left’s argument is this:

1 – Comey has poor judgement.  Interjecting himself into the election gave the election to Trump.

2 – Trump firing Comey is proof positive that Trump colluded with the Russians and is worse than Hitler.

I think you protest too much.  Is Comey competent or not?  Did he help Trump or not?  The argument, on its face, is laughable and shows just how partisan the whole thing is.  If Comey’s judgement is that bad, he should be fired.  Honestly, Comey should have gone a long time ago.  The reason he is still there (as far as I can see) is that Trump didn’t want to look like he was firing people over the investigation in order to protect himself.  Trump may not be able to escape those implications, unfortunately, as we all know how the media is going to portray this.

The big winner tonight is Comey.  He gets to sleep in tomorrow and put this nightmare of a job behind him.

Hannity’s Crank Phone Call

Posted by Troy on 24th October 2013 in Current Events, Entertainment

So Hannity thought it would be cute to call up the Obamacare hotline and ask them questions.  This was inappropriate.  These people are doing their job, and I imagine they have enough stress as it.  One lady did speak to him and tried to get him information on the policies (etc).  She was fired today.  Well, thank you, Hannity!  Apparently, it was against the rules for her to talk to media types.  According to her, she didn’t know, but I’m sure they made her sign a contract or something that she didn’t read.  As such, I’m putting some of the blame on her, but this is why you don’t pull games like this.  Much like bullying.  If you bully someone, they might go home and kill themselves.  They might show up at school with a knife and slit your throat too.  My point?  There are consequences for your actions, and these must be considered and not taken lightly.  In Hannity’s defense, he is making a gift to her and her child (tax-free) of her $26,000 salary he cost her and vowed to find her another job.  I am sure, which is connections, that she will find another job.  I hope Hannity learned his lesson on this one.

Happenings at the Republican National Convention

Posted by Troy on 29th August 2012 in Current Events, Political

First, let me say that I really enjoyed Ann Romney’s speech.  It actually made me feel a little better about voting for the guy, and I’m not moved by such things generally.  She came across as utterly sincere.  I believe that she loves her husband absolutely and unconditionally.  When she said that her husband does not fail, I believe her.  I bet he has always accomplished his goals.  She also reminded people that, although they are wealthy now, they had their rough times when they were first getting started and during her illness.  Of course, all of this was summed up by Juan Williams calling her a “corporate wife.”  Pretty bloody insulting there.  So we sum people up with a two word phrase, eh?  I postulate that there was nothing Ann could have said that Juan wouldn’t have trashed.  Of course, calling her a corporate wife who cannot relate to the common man must be based upon the assumption that Michelle Obama can somehow relate to the common man with her jet trips and fancy clothes and foods.  Hey, at least the Romneys pay for their own extravagance, not the taxpayers.  One thing that I can tell you we will never hear from Ann Romney say is: “For the first time in my adult life, I am proud of my country!”  Know who said that?  Michelle Obama.  And she did it on two separate occasions.  I can tell you that there is no way Michelle Obama can relate to me.  I have always been proud of my country, even when they screw up and elect someone like Obama.

In other news, Yahoo fired David Chalian for saying that Republicans are “happy to have a party with black people drowning.”  Good for them.  Let me just say, I’m sick and tired of everyone crying and flying the flag at half mast over every single death (oh, and so far there’s only one confirmed death from Hurricane Issac).  Here’s a question to Chalian, “What do you suppose we do then?  Should everybody stop living their lives and fake mourn and wail for people we don’t know?”  No.  I would say we should probably carry on with our own lives.  If we feel so compelled, it would be nice to contribute to relief efforts and what not, but this is a piddy little Category 1 storm.  Psh!  Grow up, dude.  This isn’t Katrina.

Anyway, the convention is going great.  Paul Ryan gave a tremendous speech.  Hopefully the ticket will be able to stay on message.  If they keep hammering the truth about the economy and the budget, there is little that Obama will be able to do.  If someone is wielding the sword truth against you, you will soon find your shield of lies shall shatter.

Long Live the Constitution!
