Yes, his sponsors threatened to quit, but some did anyway. More importantly, there was no moral imperative to do so because I doubt a modern woman like Ms. Fluke is insulted by Rush’s word choice. And get this, our President who doesn’t want his daughter to be punished with a baby, called Sandra Fluke to see how she’s coping with Rush’s comments. What a phony!
These day and age being accused of sleeping around — even for money — is not a big a deal. “Slut” is simply a semi-rude word (we all can think of stronger expressions) for behavior that is not exactly unacceptable, and in some circles is even desirable. In the era of 3rd wave feminism, when women are called sluts, they buy skimpy outfits and go on parades. Hence the Slutwalk phenomenon sweeping Europe and North America.

Vicarious grief is not my thing. Grief is very personal, and reserved for those you knew, loved, and lost.
And I didn’t know Andrew Breitbart.
Still, though, I have fought tears all day. He was one of my heroes. I don’t have many. I’m late to this whole conservative blogosphere party, but I understand and appreciate the fact that this “party” would not exist without certain key outliers. Rush Limbaugh, Neil Boortz, Matt Drudge, Glenn Reynolds, and Andrew Breitbart are prime examples.
The “Big” voice.
I dunno if you’ve noticed, but my tagline is “just one voice from the rabble.”
This tagline is meant to emphasize the smallness of my voice. Insignificant. No one of any import.
Well. As a typical average nobody, can I just say? It’s awesome when a bigger voice speaks for you. And that’s what Andrew Breitbart did. When nobody-ol’-me attended the Code Red anti-Obamacare…

BENJAMIN NETANYAHU AND BARACK OBAMA: A PAIR FOR THE AGES. SERIOUSLY.
Bibi and Barack. Sitting in the Oval Office before the world. Bibi Speaks. The look on Obama’s face is that of a man in desperate need of Pepto Bismol.
It’s absolutely hysterical. Barack Obama hates Benjamin Netanyahu. You can see it in his eyes. You can see it in the disgust on his face. You can see it in his body language. The mad Jew from Jerusalem irritates the crap out of the community organizer from Chicago.
It doesn’t get any better than Benjamin Netanyahu vs. Barack Obama. One of them is a strong principled leader who possesses the certitude and moral courage to stand up to the enemies of his country – at all costs – regardless of domestic politics or world opinion.
The other one is Barack Hussein Obama.
Obama “welcomed” Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to…

This is an absolutely great read. So here ya go!:
Prior to his passing, Andrew Breitbart said that the mission of the Breitbart empire was to exemplify the free and fearless press that our Constitution protects–but which, increasingly, the mainstream media denies us.
“Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?” – “Who guards the guardians?” Andrew saw himself in that role—as a guardian protecting Americans from the left’s “objective” loyal scribes.
Andrew wanted to do what the mainstream media would not. First and foremost: Andrew pledged to vet President Barack H. Obama.
Andrew did not want to re-litigate the 2008 election. Nor did he want to let Republicans off the hook. Instead, he wanted to show that the media had failed in its most basic duty: to uncover the truth, and hold those in power accountable, regardless of party.

“Oh yeah – did I mention that the boy was white? And that the hate crime was carried out by blacks?
The entire quote was:“This is what you deserve; you get what you deserve, white boy.”

‘THIS IS WHAT YOU DESERVE; YOU GET WHAT YOU DESERVE’ – AS CHILD IS ENGULFED IN FIREBALL
Police in Kansas City are investigating a possible “hate crime” after a 13-year-old boy was doused in gasoline and set on fire. According to Allen Goin’s mother, the attack occurred just as her son was getting home from school. Mrs. Goin described what happened:
“They rushed him on the porch as he tried to get the door open; one of them poured gasoline, then flicked the Bic and said, ‘This is what you deserve; you get what you deserve…’”
The boy was engulfed in a “large fireball,” according to police, but was able to beat out the flames and call 911 and his dad. In addition to suffering first degree burns, Allen lost his eyebrows, eyelashes, and part of the skin on his face. Doctors say there is also long-term concern…

I look forward to Mondays, almost as much as I do Friday afternoon. Well, that’s a bit of a stretch! But taking a couple of days off from writing my random thoughts and views on the affairs of the world is kind of nice.
It can be overwhelming at times when I see acts from our government that are blatantly unconstitutional, immoral, or both. And the only defense, or offense high have is my vote, and my keyboard. Sometimes in order to solve a problem, one has to step away from the problem. I virtually go on a news lock down. I watch golf, NASCAR, and dvds. I do yard work, I bbq, meet friends for beers, and generally spend too much of my change!
So I guess I need to start each Monday by saying hello and thanks for continuing to stop by this little blog that I have. I know I ain’t the best writer, the best cook, or the greatest political analysts in the world, but I do have a whole heck of a lot of fun thinking I am.
So happy Monday to all of you, and I will continue to make an effort to stop by all of you who are following the Hillbilly!
