What? Me, Worry?

Here in the land of 21st century socialism, where I live, it was clear to about 40% of the population in 2002 that the country was coming apart at the seams. There were mega-protests by the opposition in the streets of the capitol and in all the major cities. Foreign news media were here in abundance and reporting on the crisis. The president at the time and other high officials would take to airwaves and say day after day ” ¡Aqui no passa nada!” (Here? Nothing’s happening here). The opposition protestors were quick to turn that phrase in their own […]

Shaneen Allen vs. Ray Rice – You Be The Judge

Shaneen Allen is not a new name on Political Realities. I have written twice about her plight after she accidentally went afoul of New Jersey’s antiquated gun laws. You can read those posts here and here. Suffice it to say, this young mother of two young boys from Philadelphia never envisioned being thrown in jail for bringing a gun legally purchased in Pennsylvania into New Jersey. As much as that may be, that is what she is facing. It seems the Garden State doesn’t abide by anyone bringing a gun into their state that isn’t approved and they are throwing […]

The Asylum Watch “Nut Case of the Week” Award

It’s Sunday, which makes it a good day to reflect on man’s follies. No where are man’s follies more visible than in the halls of any government in the world. We Americans certainly have countless examples in our government. While browsing the web this morning, I came across an article titled Idiot of the Week, in which  the author had a hard time deciding between John Kerry, for his use of bible quotes to support global warming, and Debbie Wasserman Schultz, for accusing Scott Walker of abusing women. He went with Schultz. But allowing words to escape one’s lips in […]

Obama: ‘I Should’ve Anticipated The Optics’ Of Golfing After Foley Beheading [VIDEO]

Hat/Tip to The Daily Caller. Even when he offers a mea culpa of sorts, he still manages to get a little whining squeezed into his rambling reply… Basically, he said that when “…you’re supposed to be on vacation,” that “you’re followed everywhere.” Supposed to be on vacation?? And he has the audacity to whine about the press? The press that falls all over itself to prop this empty suit up? Mr. President, I submit the idea to you that maybe, just maybe since we have Americans being beheaded, mutilated, tortured and killed and since we have a systematic genocide against […]

An Open Letter to Barack Obama: World War III is Here

Hat/Tip to Larry Gatlin and Fox News. Here, in its entirety is the open letter that country music legend, Larry Gatlin penned to President Obama. Dear Mr. President, It’s been quite a summer. The world is not a pretty place right now but I see you have had a chance to play golf. In fact you’ve played golf through the worst of it. Right after announcing that American journalist James Foley had been beheaded. Now I play golf and I enjoy it. But I’m not president of the United States… so I have a little more time. But I digress. […]

Despicable Prank!!!! So Wrong!!

A boy living in Ohio was the victim of an atrocious prank. The boy thought that he was participating in the ALS ice bucket challenge but instead other high school students played a cruel, vile prank pouring human waste and cigarette butts on the boy.  Plus, the pranksters even went so low as to make a video of their bullying the boy with autism.  Sick!!!  Friggin awful!!  I feel so sorry for the autistic boy.  Drew Carey is spot on when saying that after these teens who committed this horrible act are found, they should be arrested and expelled from […]

New Six Flags Ride Captures The Essence of Obama’s Domestic and Foreign Policy

For six years of this abomination known as the Obama Presidency, most us feel like we’ve been trapped on some incredibly insane roller coaster. Six Flags has captured that feeling in their new ride. (H?T to Right Scoop) . .   They should name the Obama Policy Comet. Well, that’s what I’m thinking. What are your thoughts? . . .

Three Examples of Why America is In A State of Irreversible Decline

Three Examples of Why America is In A State of Irreversible Decline   Being a self-appointed observer of the asylum we all have to live can be a daunting task. Although there are times when one can find humor in the observed insanity, more often than not the observations are unpleasant in the extreme. And, what could be more unpleasant than having to conclude from observing so much insanity that the irrefutable decline our once great nation is a permanent and irreversible. Think of the inertia in a spinning flywheel. For over a hundred years, the idealogues on the left have […]

Douches Wild

“Obama simply decided to trade in Jeremiah Wright for someone objectively worse: Al Sharpton. Wright was a divisive, racialist demagogue, no question, but I’m unaware of anything in the Chicago preacher’s past that rises to the level of Sharpton’s behavior, past or present.” – John Nolte The worldview of Barack Obama has always been shaped by a wrecking crew of assorted communists, socialists, Islamists, pacifists, and perverts, so it should come as no great surprise to anyone who’s been paying attention over the last 6+ years that in matters of race, he has taken to relying on the inflammatory advice […]

Honey, I Shrunk The Presidency

  You know a leftie like Obama is in hot water when sycophants like Tingles Matthews,Maureen Dowdy, and the editorial lackeys at the New York Times begin to carp.  Of course, that posse of progressive punditry is not really as exercised over Barry’s inane policies (or lack thereof) as they are over the excessive amount of time he’s spent bogeying the back nine when he could have been back in the Oval Office with his brat pack of latter-day Bolsheviks devising more ways to screw up the country and the world.      For a silver-plated narcissist like Obama, the day-to-day grind of […]

Gas prices are falling, Do we question the timing…?

If there wasn’t an election in 2 months I might be happy about falling gasoline prices Gas prices are falling. I question the timing. Gasoline prices in New Jersey have dropped this summer and as of today, three stations in Union and Middlesex counties were charging as low as $2.98 for a gallon of unleaded. That marked the first time since February that a station in the state sold gas for less than $3 a gallon, highlighting what oil analysts say is a trend that should continue into Labor Day and beyond. Yup, “beyond,” to Election Day. The $2.99 gas […]

Slinging In The Rain

“Obama, with his presidency crumbling, is like a petulant child who wants to pick up his marbles and leave.” (The Presidency is Breaking Obama Even As Obama Has Broken the Nation) “With multiple crises spiraling out of control around the world, stories about the Obama presidency are taking on the air of postmortems. What went wrong, who’s to blame, what next — even The New York Times is starting to recognize that Dear Leader is a global flop.” (The media is turning on President Obama) “Barack Obama has played almost 200 rounds of golf, no matter what crisis is ongoing. […]

Are Women Victims Of Their Vaginas? The Call for Free Feminine Hygiene Products

Move over Sandra Fluke and make room for Jessica Valenti, a reporter for The Guardian. {A big Hat Tip to Bruce McQuain at Questions and Observations for this bit of insanity.} Thanks to the testimony of a political plant from the prestigious Georgetown Law School, Sandra Fluke, the insurance provided by employers must provide women with FREE condoms and/or other forms of contraception. Flukes argument seems to have been that women can’t control what they do with their vaginas and according to her cost estimate of $3000 per year, women law students lose control of their vaginas a lot! Now we […]

An Ode To The Odious

Original Post:  Be Sure You’re Right, Then Go Ahead

I am an American

I am an American.

I want my elected leaders to read, understand and follow the Constitution of the United States of America; to the letter.

An Embarassment Of Glitches

“Instead of worrying about whether immigrants can learn English, you need to make sure your child can speak Spanish.” – Barack Obama “By opening our borders to illegal immigrants, and pardoning those illegals already here as he plans through executive order, Obama will create millions of new citizens within a few years to help him transform America into a multicultural vacation land for the world’s footloose homeless with free food, housing, education, entertainment, and healthcare as drawing cards.” – Douglas Hertz “At least 71 individuals from the three nations affected by the current Ebola outbreak have either turned themselves in […]

If you’re wondering if our government is friend or foe, wonder no more.

Political cartoonists are some of our most clever people. With simple caricatures and a few words they are able to capture the essence of an important issue facing the people. In my opinion, this cartoon which I borrowed from Zero Hedge, explains perfectly why Americans on Main Street do not feel like the government is working in your best interests. h/t @butifulabsurdt That’s exactly right, isn’t it? The well being of the folks on Main Street was not a fundamental of interest to our central planners in Washington, D.C. Your well being was not a part of their calculus. Instead, […]

The Arrogance of Some High Profile Lawbreakers

The idea that we are all equal under the law is pure horse puckey. That shouldn’t be news to anyone who isn’t brain dead. Justice often goes to who can afford the best lawyer or who is more politically connected. No doubt the family of Mary Jo  Kopechne, for example, have some thoughts on the subject. Most people in America are law-abiding. Even when they don’t like a particular law or even when that believe a law to be unjust, they will generally abide by the law anyway. For these law-abiding folks, it really rubs them raw to see how […]

Why Do Fools Fall In Love?

  “In the United States, Eid also reminds us of the many achievements and contributions of Muslim Americans to building the very fabric of our nation and strengthening the core of our democracy.” – Barack Obama Percentage of U.S. population that is Muslim – .o8% – Wikipedia Try as I might, I just can’t recall any of the Muslim ‘achievements and contributions’ Barry refers to … unless it’s the recent ‘Kill the Jews’ demonstrations held in Chicago, Miami, New York, Boston, and Los Angeles, genocidal soirees sponsored by his dear friends in CAIR … In 2010, James Lewis wondered Why […]

America Is No Longer Feared Or Respected

Make no mistake, I am proud to be an American. I will apologize for that to no one. I am glad I was born here, in the best, the freest, the safest country in the world. We have been involved in conflicts throughout our history, but there has always been one overriding factor that has always kept us safe. Looking back on our history, I am certain mistakes were made. There were probably conflicts in which we were involved that we should have stayed out of. But no one dared strike us on our homeland, for fear of the terrible […]
