This just in from the Ministry of Truth! – 6/14/2012 Edition

2012 June 14
by justrand

Comrades, it is with sadness that we here at the Ministry of Truth must report a setback in the war against Crawford, Texas.  The forces of darkness that the nefarious George W. Bush has marshalled there, launched a vicious counter-attack against our brave workers…leading to an “up-tick” in the New Claims for Unemployment number. It “up-ticked” 6,000 to 386,000 from 377,000 380,000.  [Note: please report any friends/family/co-workers who claim it was NOT already 380,000…they are either deluded or are themselves agents of the “W-Brigade“]

This is only a minor and temporary setback in our Dear Leader’s war against “W” and, or course, EastAsia Eurasia EastAsia Eurasia EastAsia (whom we have always been at war with)! In fact, it may not be a setback at all!!  As our splendid Comrades at the A/P reported:

More Americans sought unemployment aid last week, suggesting hiring remains sluggish.

You see?  It is only a “suggestion“!!  Like when a waiter “suggests” a particular item on the menu…but you can simply IGNORE the suggestion, and that is what we here at the Ministry of Truth SUGGEST you do: ignore the suggestion that there is bad news!!!    [If you need help ignoring the “suggestion” that there could even POSSIBLY be bad news in the Age of Obama, please contact the Department of Proctological Education (DOPE)…they should be able to, um, help]

This week’s Public Service Announcement:

Cher‘s mom looks great, doesn’t she?  We know this because Yahoo “News” featured Cher’s mom at the top of their “News Roundup” all last weekend!  You see?  That should convince even the dimmest of bulbs out that there was NO bad news last week…else why would THAT have been THE top news item?  Duh!

    please note…there will be another thread up titled: “A Continuing Process”. The “gentleman” who will be posting this, “BC3B”, is quite obviously a secret agent of the nefarious “W-Brigade”. But as he is already scheduled for “re-education”, we here at the Ministry of Truth have no problem with you reading his LIES about Lord Obama!!!!

    Just remember: the TRUTH comes only from the Ministry of Truth! 🙂

    this “gem” was included in the A/P’s spin reporting on the unemployment news:

    Applications fell steadily during the fall and winter but have since leveled off” (they’ve “leveled off” by rising steadily…but who’s counting, eh?)

    Are things like slashed benefits ever counted? Companies downsizing in ways other than jobs? Less hours (though not to the point of being under employed), asking employees to pay for their bennies that have always been discounted to near zero, no more sick time, no more xyz? Because these things affect the economy as well. They are more of the SBD nature though. 😉

    #20 I saw the article on your #1 point yesterday, but I don’t think he can or will do that on a federal level. Yeah, a few states might put it on the ballot and have it pass, but customers who purchase still have to deal with the feds. #s 2-5 are almost a given, but he’d have to do that before the election, because at this point, I don’t think that all those youngsters who voted for him before still believe he has the ability to do anything that helps them. This time he might just have to pay in advance. If they are dumb enough to fall for his lies again, there won’t be any recourse when he fails them- again. They can’t not vote for him again.

    IP…my take on these:

    1)legalizing pot. – potential for MASSIVE backlash I doubt he does this, though he will “hint” at an “evolving position” on this
    2)Granting amnesty to illegals. – also potential for backlash…but also may buy him enough countering votes. PLUS, the media will paint him as a macho combination of Moses+Ghandi…with a touch of Reagan (yes, they’ll dredge THAT up again). I think he does this.
    3)Dumping biden. Biden is ONE more “up-tick” in the whimsical Monthly Unemployment number from “deciding to pursue other opportunities” I think he definately does this!
    4)Forgiving student loans – Wow…this would CRATER the economy, and convince all future college students that THEY are also “entitled” to a free college education! Yup…cratering the economy would NOT faze this bozo one bit. The timing would be tricky though. I don’t think he does this.
    5)Forgiving home mortgages(for the poor) same caveats as the Student Loan thingee

    Items 4 & 5 are the scariest, since he would have to do them KNOWING they would have a devestating impact on the markets…but Jughead does NOT give a damn!

    #3 is a sure thing, IMHO. I have still seen ZERO (none, nada, zilch) “Obama-Biden 2012” stickers…but LOTS of “Obama – 2012” stickers. There’s a reason

    You’re going to love this one…..

    Barack and Michelle Obama are at the O’s game.
    Sitting in the first row with the Secret Service people directly behind them,
    one of the Secret Service agents leans forward and says something to the President.

    Barack stares at the guy, looks at Michelle, looks back at the agent, and
    shakes his head “no” violently.

    The agent then says, “Mr. President, it was a unanimous request, from
    the owner of the team down to the bat boy. And…the fans would love it!”

    So, Barack shrugs his shoulders and says, “If that’s what the people want.”
    He gets up, grabs Michelle by her collar and the seat of her pants, and
    throws her right over the wall into the field.

    She gets up kicking, swearing, and screaming — and the crowd goes wild,
    cheering, applauding, and high-fiving.

    Barack is bowing and smiling, and leans over to the agent and says,
    “You were right, I would have never believed that!”

    Then noticing the agent has gone totally pale, Barack asks what is wrong.

    The agent replies, “Sir, I said, they want you to throw out the first PITCH!”

    I have noticed that as well, with the exception of the “lots” part. I have only seen a handful, but they are indeed only Obama ones. What I HAVE seen LOTS of are variations of the “nOpe” stickers. I always make sure to give those folks a thumbs up, instead of the one finger salute reserved for O voters.

    Oh- and all the O stickers have been on a Prius. Prius drivers are the worst drivers on the freaking road. They cannot stay in their lanes, they drive so far under the speed limit that they may as well be on the bike paths, and they are almost always on their cell phones, laws be damned.

    #14-#32 —

    Negotiations are still underway with the Clintons. Nothing will be decided until the convention (or after). Although I don’t see him taking Hillary. Obama doesn’t want to share the stage with anyone… especially not Hillary.

    I am thinking that Obama would take a Claire McCaskill before Hillary. But Carville is sticking his ugly mug into strategy so negotiations must be underway.

    I don’t see the Clinton’s coming in unless the real numbers are close. Right now I think there are internal polls that don’t overcount Democrats and apply a real Bradley effect to the votes for Obama (I’ll tell you Obama so you don’t call me a racist– but I am not voting for him).

    Hillary would accept VP only if she moves the needle sufficiently for ZERO to win. I don’t see Hillary moving the needle more than 2 to 3 points, so if the internals show Obama lower Hillary will not attach herself to a losing ticket.

    When Washington did not tell a lie and confessed his sin to his father, it was President Obama who urged him to do the right thing.

    Brutus|6.14.12 @ 11:53AM|#

    It was actually President Obama that drafted the Emacipation Proclamation and urged Lincoln to sign it.

    As relates back to Obama’s baked into that cake left out in the rain, I ready Krauthammer’s take on Obama’s math calculations and all I could think about is that Obama’s credentials for accounting and math sit far below the level of competency that he has demonstrated as a US Constitutional Law professor instructor lecturer Saul Alinksy propagandist.

    In other words, the only one dumber when it comes to explaining math than Obama are those who think Obama’s words are anything but fantasy. The only relationship Obama’s speeches have with the truth is that the words are written using the English alphabet.

    Otherwise Obama’s words are all Greek to me, Greek as is Greece as in another socialist mess that is falling over the cliff on the way to crash and burn.

    MI Conservative – problem with Pennsylvania is Philadelphia. They get 90% plus voter turnout (better known as cheating). In some precincts in the past have had 100% voter turnout.

    English is a beautiful language:

    Did you know:

    * That the words “race car” spelled backward still spells “race car”?

    * That “eat” is the only word that if you take the 1st letter and move it to the last, it spells its past tense “ate”?

    * And have you noticed that if you rearrange the letters in “illegal immigrants”, and add just a few more letters, it spells out: “Go home you free-loading, benefit grabbing, kid-producing, violent, non-English speaking hairy-faced, sandal wearing, bomb making, goat loving, raggedy ass radical Muslim bastards.”
