DavidL's Breakfast Scramble
So who is the Tea Bagger? I won tries to muddle the message, from USA Today:

President Obama said many Tea Party followers have “mainstream legitimate concerns,” but their movement is built around a “core group” of opponents who call him a socialist and question his citizenship.

Is the Dim One calling the Reverend Al Sharpton a Tea Bagger? From Conservative Blog Watch:

“Americans overwhelmingly voted for socialism when they elected Barack Obama

Dumbo hates being called a socialist.  Yet Obama has nationalized, General Motors, health care and student loans.  Obama’s mere words can only mask but not alter his socialist core.  He action define Obama a socialist.

Obama Care Strikes again, from Associated Press:

NEW YORK — Insurer Prudential Financial Inc. said Monday that it will take a $100 million charge in the first quarter in relation to the recent health care overhaul legislation.

The life insurance and annuities provider said in a regulatory filing that it will take the charge against earnings in the first quarter.

Henry Waxman will not be happy.

John McCain’s Brain on drugs, P9litico:

Sen. John McCain wants to call in the cavalry to defend Arizona from illegal immigrants crossing the border from Mexico — and to shore up his own right flank.

Three words Moron McCain:  Posse Comitatus Act

Question of the Day, “What Is John McCain Smoking?” From Dan Riehl, Riehl World View.   All the more reason to retire McCain, the old guy not Stacy.

What is Eugene Robinson smoking? When Major Hasan murdered twelve American soldiers Fort Hood, Texas, Robinson blamed the shootings on the Army’s failure to protect and worried about offending Muslims,  from 10 November, 2009, Washington Post:

Had authorities learned in advance of any link between Hasan and radical Islam — as opposed to the mainstream Islam practiced by more than a billion people worldwide — they could have moved immediately to ensure that Hasan could not hurt others or himself. That wouldn’t have been an act of bigotry, it would have been an act of prudence, even compassion.

How is the Pentagon supposed to tell the difference between reasonable caution and blatant discrimination? There are thousands of Muslims in uniform, serving their country at home and abroad. Ask them.

Yet when the Eric Holder directed FBI arrested citizens in Michigan and Ohio for an alleged plot to kill police officer, Robinson is quick to condemn both the right and Christians, from the Washington Post via RCP:

WASHINGTON — The arrests of members of a Michigan-based “Christian” militia group should convince doubters that there is good reason to worry about right-wing, anti-government extremism — and potential violence — in the Age of Obama.

Right wing violence largely exists in the demented imagination of crackpots like Janet Napolitano and Morris Dees.    Leave aside the late Timothy McVeigh and the FBI  has killed more innocent civilians than the right wing.    I mean it is not like Bill Ayers was a member of the John Birch Society.   However Sheets Byrd is still in the Senate.

Does reading the Bible, scare the shat of the Obami?

DETROIT (AP) – It started inside a trailer home in rural Michigan, where a small family gathered before bed for prayer. Years later, the private devotions had evolved into a small militia of “Christian warriors” preparing to fight the Antichrist.

The changes in David Brian Stone’s personal theology partly destroyed his marriage, his former wife says, and prosecutors claim they later led him to hatch a plot to kill police officers – a violent act the militia hoped would touch off an uprising against the government.

Maybe the Obami have good reason to be scared.   A lot of American both read the Bible and have guns.    Aside from being literate and armed, I don’t a lot specifics in the charges.  Do you?

Iceland bans strip clubs, young males and immigrant women hit hardest. No big deal.  I had no immediate plans to travel to Iceland anyhow.   However I did find the discussion of the article on Feministing to be interesting, provocative and a just a wee bit hopeful.   Any time a liberal discusses the idea the limiting a power of an individual to make a frec choice a not necessarily a good idea, I get a warm conservative tingle.

Being a fair minded, albeit sexist,. individual, I feel obligated to point out the disparate impact of Iceland’s ban.   It adversely affects young males, who often feel the need of testosterone boost without also impacting females from boosting their estrogen levels.    In fairness Iceland should also ban female pornography, to with supermarket rags the Nation Enquirer,whatever clutters the aisle of what p[asses for supermarkets in Iceland.
