Western Education Is Sacrilege

Another, day, another country, more Dar al-Harb, the Religion of Murder and Mayhem rampages on.

At least 69 dead in north Nigeria sect attacks

Residents fearfully left their homes Saturday to bury their dead in northeast Nigeria following a series of coordinated attacks that killed at least 69 people and left a new police headquarters in ruins, government offices burned and symbols of state power destroyed.

A radical Muslim sect known locally as Boko Haram claimed responsibility for the attacks in Borno and Yobe states, with the worst damage done in and around the city of Damaturu. The group also promised to continue its bloody sectarian fight against Nigeria’s weak central government, with residents nervously moving through empty streets, waiting for the next attack.

. . .

Boko Haram wants to implement strict Shariah law across Nigeria, an oil-rich nation of more than 160 million which has a predominantly Christian south and a Muslim north. Its name means “Western education is sacrilege” in the local Hausa language, but instead of schooling, it rejects Western ideals like Nigeria’s U.S.-styled democracy that followers believe have destroyed the country with corrupt politicians.

Much like the Taliban in Afghanistan, the Boko Haram kill and maim, in the name of Islam, to prevent the education of Muslim children.

Who Owns The Freakshow?

Well, let’s see. Obama likes him some OccupyWallStreet. He thinks “[they express] the frustrations that the American people feel.”

Nancy Pelosi says, “God bless them,for their spontaneity. It’s independent, it’s young, it’s spontaneous, and it’s focused and it’s going to be effective.”

Susan Sarandon notes that, “we can’t let our Arab brothers and sisters get way ahead of us.”

Michael Moore observes, “this movement has, very rapidly, reached millions of Americans . . . it’s very heartening.”

What about the labor unions? Yep, they’re onboard.

In fact, there’s a whole ticker tape parade of bandwagons filled with lefty politicians and celebrities who have glommed on to the “occupiers'” cause. But who are these “occupiers”, really?

For starters, they’re racist, Jew hating antisemites.

They’re also violent lawbreakers.

In general, they’re vile, filthy degenerates, illegally squatting in New York City parks.

Stinking up Wall Street: Protesters accused of living in filth as shocking pictures show one demonstrator defecating on a POLICE CAR

This are the shocking scenes that have led some people to accuse the Occupy Wall Street protesters living rough in New York’s financial district of creating unsanitary and filthy conditions.

Exclusive pictures obtained by Mail Online show one demonstrator relieving himself on a police car.

So, who owns the freakshow and who’s organizing it? It obviously emanates from the left of the political spectrum and the tacit approval and open encouragement from Obama, Pelosi, and other prominent Leftys tells you all you need to know. And when the unions join in as reinforcements, that confirms it. All roads from Occupy Wall Street meander back to the Obama reelection campaign through various left wing front groups. It’s the most bizarre reelection strategy I’ve ever seen, incite, encourage, and reinforce class warfare rioting in the streets of major American cities. Will it be enough to get Obama reelected? Probably not, but what else does he have to run on?

/in any case, whatever else ensues from the “Occupy Wall Street movement”, for better or worse, Obama ultimately owns the freakshow

Another One Bites The Dust

Yet another government entitlement program looks to be about to go belly up.

Social Security Disability Payments Could End in 2017

Aging baby boomers and laid-off workers are inundating Social Security’s disability program with benefit claims, a financial strain that new congressional estimates report could leave the program bankrupt by 2017.

Applications have increased by 50 percent over the past decade, according to a report from the Congressional Budget Office (CBO), as more people with disabilities lost their jobs — and often remain unemployed for months or even years — in an economy that has been hemorrhaging jobs.

Medicare, Social Security, and now Social Security Disability are all well down the road toward insolvency and the politicians, particularly the Democrats, don’t have the guts to do a damn thing about it. So, if you’re under say, 50, I wouldn’t be counting on any of these entitlement programs to be there for you when you might need them in the future.

/it’s the Age of Obama economy and you’re just going to have to learn to fend for yourself

Slip Slidin’ Away

Gee, the weasel politicians in Washington continue to abdicate their responsibility and keep kicking the can down the road and the Social Security and Medicare insolvency problem keeps getting worse year after year. Go figure.

Financial Outlook Worsens for Social Security, Medicare

Social Security and Medicare’s annual checkup found that the entitlement system continues to face long-term financial challenges. The Social Security trust fund is expected to be exhausted in 2036, one year sooner than was projected last year. And the date Medicare’s hospital insurance trust fund is projected to be depleted has advanced up to 2024, five years earlier than in last year’s report. Once those dates pass, there will only be sufficient resources coming in to pay out about 77 percent of scheduled Social Security benefits and 90 percent of retirees hospital insurance costs, unless changes are made to the program.

Read the Medicare trustees’ report:

And, since we’re already into the 2012 election cycle, I wouldn’t expect Obama or Congress to step up and have the courage to make the hard, politically unpopular decisions that will have to be made in order to put Medicare and Social Security back on the path to solvency. Just look at how Paul Ryan is already being attacked for lucidly speaking truth to the demagogues. And so, next year, there’ll be another report telling us that the insolvency problem for Medicare and Social Security has gotten even worse.

/seriously, you didn’t really think you were going to collect Medicare and Social Security benefits, did you?

The Bloom Is Definitely Off The Obama Rose

It took a while, but more and more people are finally figuring out that Obama is nothing but a huge bunch of bull[expletive deleted] tethered to a TelePrompTer. It’s bad enough that 57% of Americans disapprove of his performance, but how is his infamous outreach to Islam going? Well, after apologetic, blame America first speeches in Egypt and Turkey, it turns out that Muslims worldwide don’t like Obama much either, their fists are definitely not unclenched.

President Obama losing the confidence of Muslim countries, new survey shows

President Obama can’t seem to please anyone, lately.

He’s losing friends both at home and abroad.

As U.K. pundits and politicians slam the president for assigning blame to Britain over the BP oil spill disaster, a new survey shows Obama falling out of favor in Muslim nations, too.

Overall, confidence Muslim countries have in Obama fell from 41% to 31% in the past year, according to Pew’s Global Attitudes Project.

Turkey, Egypt and Lebanon also posted 10% drops in confidence.

While never a big fan of Obama to begin with, only 5% of Muslims in Pakistan have confidence in Obama.

The over-arching reason: fears the U.S. will become a military threat to their nations.
