It Most Certainly IS Constitutional To Withhold Congressional Pay

Feb 23, 2013 — J.J. Jackson

There are a lot of fools who fancy themselves smart.  Sometimes these fools even exist within the Conservative and Libertarian movement.  Seriously, if I hear one more of these yo-yos whine about how it is “unconstitutional” for Congressional pay to be withheld pending the passage of an actual budget, I am going to scream.

Why So Much Anger At Manti Te’o?

Jan 20, 2013 — J.J. Jackson

So Manti Te’o lied about having a girl friend who was in a car accident and died from leukemia.  So Manti Te’o played the media to hype his own run for the Heisman Trophy.  So Manti Te’o and the University of Notre Dame continued to lie even as the sham was falling apart.

You Never See Mass Shootings At Gun Shows, Tea Party Rallies, Or NRA Meetings

Jan 12, 2013 — J.J. Jackson

Liberals think guns are the reason why we have mass murder in our schools (Newtown, Connecticut) and movie theaters (Aurora, Colorado).  And now they are pushing hard to see how much of our second amendment rights they can strip away from us while Low Info Voters (as Rush Limbaugh calls them) are in a panic over when another group of innocent kids will be targeted.

Solution? What Solution?

Jan 6, 2013 — J.J. Jackson

Happy New Year!  Welcome to higher taxes!

Yes, that’s right, Democrats, along with a minority of the majority Republicans in the House, voted to raise your taxes as part of the deal to avert the “fiscal cliff”!  The Senate approved the measure and Obama, the champion of the middle class, signed off on the deal that will strip money from your paycheck.  FYI, I’m firmly middle class.

The Constitution Isn’t A Black Box

Dec 15, 2012 — J.J. Jackson

The federal Constitution, according to those who penned it, is a limited set of powers granted by the States and the People to our federal government.  Modern liberals disagree, thinking that the document is an unlimited grant of power for them to do whatever they want.  Our federal government, infested with do-gooder leftists, believes in this new, rewritten Law of the Land with a fervency that is so nauseating and destructive, that it has brought us to the edge of oblivion with deficits piled on deficits for the sake of funding their doing whatever they want.  They treat government as some sort of “black box”, whereby they can pull any club out of it that they so choose and then bludgeon us with it.

Harry Reid Strikes Again With Obstructionism!

Dec 8, 2012 — J.J. Jackson

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D- NV) is probably the largest obstructionist in Washington DC these days.  What is funny, however, is when he obstructs President Obama.

Prepare For The Tantrums To Get Worse

Dec 1, 2012 — J.J. Jackson

With the “fiscal cliff” looming before us, it is time to warn you that this Christmas Season the only thing you are likely to receive are worsening tantrums from Washington.  Most of these tantrums will come from liberal Democrats.  Although, make no mistake, there will be many coming from liberal Republicans too.  Sure, there are a lot more of the former, but the latter are just as bad.

States Don’t Need To Petition To Leave The Union

Nov 18, 2012 — J.J. Jackson

You might have heard stories this past week about states that are petitioning the President for permission to secede from The Union.  The Union, being The United States of America.  But this actually is just sloppy reporting by the main stream media.

Moderate Romney Fails To Deliver for GOP

Nov 10, 2012 — J.J. Jackson

So, how’s that whole, “Let’s nominate the next in line, moderate, GOP establishment candidate” working out?  Answer: Not good.  Not good at all.  You know, sooner or later you cranky Republicans pulling the levers and switches of the party are going to listen to me.  That is, if you ever want to win another Presidential race.

Unions Uber Alles ... Suffering Citizens Be Damned

Nov 3, 2012 — J.J. Jackson

Liberal labor unions in New Jersey have a message for those suffering in the wake of hurricane Sandy.  That message is that you will suffer longer than necessary … in the name of union power.

Michelle Obama Worried Liberals Too Stupid, Too Dependent To Vote?

Oct 27, 2012 — J.J. Jackson

It’s a hard life being a liberal.  You apparently don’t know how to do anything.  Worse, not knowing how to do anything prohibits you from voting for your fellow liberals.  Don’t take my word for it.  Just ask Michelle Obama.

Everything About Obama’s Presidency Has Been “Not Optimal”

Oct 20, 2012 — J.J. Jackson

President Obama sure has a way with words.  His response to Jon Stewart when asked about the terrorist attacks Benghazi was to say, “‘If four Americans get killed, it’s not optimal.”

The U6 – The Scary Side Of The Unemployment Numbers

Oct 13, 2012 — J.J. Jackson

Happy days are here again!  After four years of trying, unemployment finally dropped below the rate considered to spell doom for President Obama.  That rate would be 8%.  There were orgasms of joy when it was announced that the unemployment rate for September was a mere 7.8%.  Forget the fact that President Obama promised that his “stimulus” plan would prevent unemployment from exceeding 8% and that we have been above that number for years.

An Empty Chair Would Have Fared Better

Oct 6, 2012 — J.J. Jackson

Liberals and their media lap dogs guffawed over Clint Eastwood’s empty chair speech at the Republican’s nominating convention.  Yet one thing was certain after Wednesday night’s first debate between President Obama and Republican challenger Mitt Romney.  Laugh all you want, but an empty chair would have fared better under the withering assault that Mitt Romney unleashed.

Romney Needs To Articulate His Plans For Dealing With Interest On Our Debt

Sep 29, 2012 — J.J. Jackson

So, here we are.  It is four years after “Hope and Change”.  That slogan proved to only be more psychobabble from a babbling fool who rode the saying right into the White House.

Trying To Make The Barn Door Fly

Sep 22, 2012 — J.J. Jackson

We engineers have a saying: “Given enough thrust, even a barn door can fly.”

Now, one does not have to have a PhD in Aerospace Engineering to understand how non-aerodynamic a barn door is.  But the saying is indeed true: if you strap a big enough engine (some call it a rocket) to a barn door, it will indeed fly.  And by “fly” I mean careen haphazardly though the air leaving a trail of destruction in its wake as it slams into things at random.

Chicagoland: Useful Idiocy On Display

Sep 15, 2012 — J.J. Jackson

Eventually liberalism turns on itself and starts eating its own.  Evil always does.

People of the Government, by the Government, for the Government?

Sep 8, 2012 — J.J. Jackson

Certain truths are undeniable.  The sun will rise in the east and set in the west.  If you plant a peach seed, you will get a peach tree and not an apple tree.  Telemarketers will always call you, despite being on the national do not call list, as you are trying to sit down and eat dinner with your family.  And, of course, liberals just don’t get America.

GM’s Volt Powerless To Resist Market Forces

Sep 1, 2012 — J.J. Jackson

GM has announced that it is shutting down and retooling the plant making their Chevy Volt because they are sitting on a three-month backlog of proverbial ugly babies.  That’s right, GM has 6,500 of the boondoggles just waiting to be purchased.

Of Course I’m Intolerant, Aren’t You?

Aug 4, 2012 — J.J. Jackson

So, now that I’ve endured a week of intolerance at the hands of those who claim to be tolerant, those homosexual activists who are upset that I dared to support Chick-fil-A publicly last week, it’s time to have a serious discussion about intolerance.
