They are desperate for change. However, the only change they will see is a massive defeat in November. It’s ironic that the Democrats would choose a bullseye as their new logo. Again, another brilliant idea for former Governor “Jet Set” Tim Kaine.
Wouldn’t it be nice if the Republicans in Congress could follow Taiwan’s lead and pommel Nancy Pelosi? Imagine Barney Frank’s reaction to the fight.
It’s Electric Slide time for the U.S. House Leadership team of Reps. Jim Clyburn (D-S.C.) and Steny Hoyer (D-Md.). The big question is: Where’s the Botox Queen, Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.)?
Meanwhile, the economy continues to slide and Congress continues to destroy our liberties by passing Obama Care, etc. However, the Democrats believe in partying, rather than working. I can’t wait to see the Depression set in for the Dems in November.
This week has one of the most important holidays devoted to the Earth. You’ve guessed it, Earth Day. It’s the day when I do my part by hiking a part of the Appalachian Trail (or a nearby trail…this year, I plan to visit Cunningham Falls State Park in Maryland) and celebrating nature’s beautiful scenery.
Earth Day has taken many twists and turns over the years. Now, thanks to the advent of “An Inconvenient Truth” and a degree of hyper-environmentalism, we are faced with a new slogan “Recycle or die” or Cap and Trade legislation, which would regulate industries that produce clean energy. Earth Day is no longer about promoting conservation within reason. It is now a day, which is meant to make Americans feel obligated about cleaning up trash, rather than allowing others to take initiatives for their own actions. Public schools across America talk about how recycling is a must. I always thought recycling was an initiative that one could decide to partake in, not feel forced. Then again, I wonder if this is the other portion of the curriculum being taught for Earth Day.
Granted with all of this “Save Mother Earth” and “Save the Planet” jargon, I feel as if I can’t celebrate Earth and the people who created the trash in the first place. I conserve water, recycle, clean up after myself, and drive an emissions free vehicle (not a hybrid, but close enough) on my own initiatives. George Carlin says it best time and again as evidenced in this clip.
Happy Earth Day! Celebrate reasonably.
Earlier this morning, I highlighted the fact that Congress forgot that their cadillac health coverage would be gone until 2014 with the recent passage of President Obama’s health care reform law. Now, it appears Congress has become Comedy Cabana.
Enter Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) for today’s entertainment. Now, for those not following Rep. Waters’ career, it is common knowledge that she is a loose cannon, who is not afraid to speak what’s on her mind (no matter how insane her comments might be). During a Congressional hearing, she openly admits that she’s a socialist. Hey, we can’t accuse her of being dishonest.
Hopefully, voters (except in Rep. Maxine Waters’ case) can help get rid of some of these village idiots currently in control of Congress.
We have rocket scientists running Congress. According to Ace of Spades, Congress has voted to terminate their own health insurance and will not receive a replacement until 2014. This session of Congress has certainly brought out who’s who among the morons and it also goes to show that they did not read the bill fully to comprehend what they were going to do to the American public and even themselves.
In a recent New York Times article, the Congressional Research Service says there will be consequences to not just the coverage received by members of Congress, but to their staffers as well.
For example, it says, the law may “remove members of Congress and Congressional staff” from their current coverage, in the Federal Employees Health Benefits Program, before any alternatives are available.
The confusion raises the inevitable question: If they did not know exactly what they were doing to themselves, did lawmakers who wrote and passed the bill fully grasp the details of how it would influence the lives of other Americans?
The law promises that people can keep coverage they like, largely unchanged. For members of Congress and their aides, the federal employees health program offers much to like. But, the report says, the men and women who wrote the law may find that the guarantee of stability does not apply to them.
“It is unclear whether members of Congress and Congressional staff who are currently participating in F.E.H.B.P. may be able to retain this coverage,” the research service said in an 8,100-word memorandum.
The law apparently bars members of Congress from the federal employees health program, on the assumption that lawmakers should join many of their constituents in getting coverage through new state-based markets known as insurance exchanges.
But the research service found that this provision was written in an imprecise, confusing way, so it is not clear when it takes effect.
The new exchanges do not have to be in operation until 2014. But because of a possible “drafting error,” the report says, Congress did not specify an effective date for the section excluding lawmakers from the existing program.
Perhaps, members of Congress should lose their cadillac plans, as it will help them to realize the impact of their votes for government-run health care on the American people. In the meantime, we can only laugh at their stupidity.
Alright, some of you read that I was moving company headquarters to Google, Kansas. Well, I decided to leave quietly in the middle of the night to come back home to the confines of the underground bunker in Northern Virginia.
While Google, Kansas is a lovely town filled with computers, wi-fi, park benches, and organic markets, I missed the non-stop entertainment of Virginia. Remember, ruby red stilettos can only last you for an hour before you throw them over the extreme pain caused by the shoes. The furby is also annoying too, so I sold that to a little Google-ian for 25 cents.
So, April Fools! I am here to party in Virginia for the long haul.
Rep. Hank Johnson (D-Ga.) thinks Guam is going to tip over, according to a recent hearing on Capitol Hill. In case you were wondering, it is that tiny island in the Pacific Ocean. I thought I heard it all before, but Johnson’s remarks take the cake. When I heard this on Grandy and Andy (WMAL, of course) this morning, I could not stop laughing. Perhaps, it is time to rid Congress of morons, like Johnson, and actually elect people who use common sense. Thank goodness, they are on Easter Break this week and not continuing to destroy our liberties.
It is with a heavy heart that I am writing to each of you today. You see, during my two years operating and writing for this website, I have experienced the laughter, the tears, the fiery temper, and the expansion of a wolfpack. Trouble has always encountered me, along with the humor in every day life.
Today, I have decided to relocate CCC to another city. You have heard that right! We are moving CCC Headquarters to Google, Kansas. Kansas offers CCC a pair of ruby red stilettos and a furby named Pedro (if you think a furby sounds and looks odd, they are great companions for those who have excessive allergies).
In the meantime, I hope you will continue to visit CCC and read our commentary on the wheat fields and of course, our reactions to the New York Yankees pasting the Boston Red Sox…thank goodness for Opening Day 2010.
Crystal Clear Conservative
P.S.–Happy Birthday, Shaun Kenney!
Since the recent passage of President Obama’s health care legislation, one can only imagine the great upheaval surrounding its passage and signing into law. Things have only begun to get serious with various threats to our elected officials, which are unnecessary, unacceptable and should be condemned.
Despite all of this, can we at least find our sense of humor with the President and Congress’s health care plan? After all, the late night comedians are having a field day with Obama and Congress for passing this monstrosity. Now, here for your laugh of the day. MAD Magazine has two front covers for laugh value. One cover shows how most Obama supporters are feeling.
The other cover allows for another laugh…how Obama has been coping in the Oval Office.

I don’t know about you, but can we at least laugh while we can…you never know when there will be a ban against our right to laugh.
