Breaking News- Democrat Leaders React To Reynolds Outrage

Earlier today I posted an article about Mel Reynolds, convicted sexual criminal and all around putz, throwing his hat into the ring for his old seat in Congress recently vacated by Jesse Jackson Jr.  I have spent the rest of today compiling a video montage of outrage expressed by various leading Democrats that such a man would dare to run under their party's banner........

Attention Rapists and Child Molesters! Filing Now Open For Illinois Congressional Seat

Mel in happier times, you know, before the sexual assault and bank fraud  convictions

Somehow the resignation last week of Congressman Jesse Jackson, Jr. slipped right past my eagle eyes.  J3 has been missing in action on Capitol Hill since taking medical leave on June 10, 2012.  At the time he cited "exhaustion" as the cause.  In August, reports surfaced that Jackson was in fact being treated for bipolar disorder. 

Looks like the 99.9% was in
charge on this day.
Mental illness is nothing to sneer at, but pardon me for viewing those reports with a slightly jaundiced eye.  Perhaps somewhere in J3's character is an ounce of decency and honor, and that small part of him was in constant conflict with the 99.9% that is a lying, thieving scumbag (google the name Pius Ailemen).  But I digress.  

I'm sure the October 12, 2012 announcement by federal prosecutors that they were conducting a criminal investigation of J3 for financial improprieties involving Congressional (taxpayer) funds had NOTHING to do with his resignation.  He probably just needs more free time to update his 1999 book..It's About the Money, How You Can Get Out of Debt, Build Wealth, and Achieve Your Financial Dreams.  The tome's original edition is 288 pages.  The 2012 update is 1 page long.  "Get elected to Congress and steal money from the American taxpayer.  The End."  But I digress.

J3's resignation surely brought hope to the voters of Illinois's blighted 2nd Congressional District.  Perhaps finally, a person of character, honor, and integrity would represent them in Washington D.C.  Uh, not so much.

One of the first "people" to announce his intention to run for Jackson's vacated seat was former Congressman Mel Reynolds.  You remember Mel right?  He was elected to the 2nd District Congressional seat in 1992.  Before his 2 year term was up, he was convicted on 12 counts of sexual assault, obstruction of justice, and solicitation of child pornography, all involving an underage campaign volunteer.  
Mel "Nobody's Perfect" Reynolds

In April of 1997, while in prison on those sex charges, Reynolds was convicted of 15 counts of various and assorted bank and securities fraud.  So he is quite a swell fellow.

While his announcing his plan to run for the vacant office, Reynolds was asked about his criminal history.  His response was very heartfelt and touching....and I quote....."The fact of the matter is, nobody's perfect.".  Indeed Mel, indeed.  

Editor's Note-  we at SACSTW apologize for the length of this post.  We hope our readers understand that while one is attempting to discuss the moral and character deficiencies of Democratic politicians, brevity is, well, problematic.

Arkansas Atheists- Charlie Brown Must Go!

A Christmas Story, Miracle on 34th Street, blah blah blah.  For my money, the absolute best holiday program is A Charlie Brown Christmas.   First airing in 1965, ACBC has become an annual treat, and is must-see TV in the Crew household.  It airs tonight on ABC at 8pm EST.  I'm not sure why it appeals to me so much, I've always had a fondness for classic comics and Charlie and the gang are the standard-bearers.  The incredible piano score and that droopy little tree always get me!

You know who doesn't like A Charlie Brown Christmas?  Atheists.  Specifically, Arkansas atheists.  An elementary school in Little Rock is under fire from the "Arkansas Society of Free-Thinkers" for daring to transport their students to a live performance of ACBC at a local church.  The play is set for Dec. 14th during the school day.  Students who CHOOSE to attend the event (it is not mandatory), will be required to pay $2 each to cover the cost of school bus transportation.

Anne Orsi, vice-president of the aforementioned "Free-thinkers" commented thusly.....

"We're not saying anything bad about Charlie Brown.  The problem is that it's got religious content and it's being performed in a religious venue, and that doesn't just blur the line between church and state, it oversteps it entirely."

I checked out the website of these brain-dead crapweasels, and found the following statement amongst their "goals". inform people of their First Amendment freedoms of and from religion, and to monitor and promote the awareness of local separation of church and state issues.

Atheists worship at a wall just like those at the Wailing Wall, they just do it in front of the mythical "Wall of Separation".  We've covered this numerous times at SACSTW, the separation of church and state is completely fictitious, and the First Amendment certainly offers no "freedom from religion" to the individual.  Heck I thought, maybe down in Arkansas there is such a theory, let's consult the Arkansas State Constitution....

We, the People of the State of Arkansas, grateful to Almighty God for the privilege of choosing our own form of government; for our civil and religious liberty; and desiring to perpetuate its blessings, and secure the same to ourselves and our posterity; do ordain and establish this Constitution.

"Almighty God", "blessings".......Yep sounds like a secular document to me.  Quite frankly, I am weary of this incessant bleating from the atheists that their rights are being violated by someone else's kid watching A Charlie Brown Christmas.  Of course the crap they spew piles higher and deeper this time of year, so I guess I should just thumb my nose at them and move along.  Would that they could do the same.

Monday Musings With The Crew

Wow, I must still be on vacation time getting MM out so late in the day.  It's true, I have been holed up in the SACSTW Ozark hideaway for the last several days.  Being a primitive outpost, the hideaway has no TV or internet capabilities save for my cellphone.  However, since my cell provider (T-mobile) evidently has constructed its network in mid-Missouri from kite string and soup cans, I was effectively cut off from the civilized world.  But I digress.

  • Can a Bieber get a break?  Remember when Justin Bieber was a cute little Youtube sensation?  Yeah, me neither.  Fresh off his on-stage vomition a few weeks ago, the Biebs has adopted a new look that is part MC Hammer, part Sha Na Na, and part Eminem.  He performed at halftime of the Grey Cup (the championship game of the Canadian Football Leage) over the weekend in his native Canada.  Fortunately, the Canucks had the good sense to boo him mercilessly.  I really have only one thing to say to the Biebs.....turn your damn hat around, you look like an idiot.

  • Continuing the theme of misguided A-listers, Jamie Foxx's comments at the Soul Train awards have stirred the pot a tad.  The Academy Award winning actor opened his comments this way....
It's like church in here.  First of all, give an honor to God and our lord and savior Barack Obama!

have a look for yourself

  • With Foxx and Biebs losing their minds, at least you can settle in and watch the Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York without a care in the world, right?  Not so fast confetti breath.  Reports indicate that much of the confetti dropped on parade goers was shredded documents from the Nassau County Police Department.  Witnesses claimed that the strips of confetti contained Social Security numbers, addresses, bank routing numbers, etc.  Read more here.

  • Convicted killer Ronald Post has lost his latest appeal to delay his impending execution.  An Ohio judge denied Post's claim that his marked obesity (he weighs over 400 lbs) may cause him to experience severe pain during the execution.  Hmm.  I hope so.  

  • The official Crew nominee for the 2012 Darwin Award is 32 year old Edward Archbold.  Archbold choked to death after consuming dozens of live cockroaches in a bug-eating contest sponsored by a south Florida pet store. Wow, you'd think you would see people dropping dead in Waffle House parking lots everywhere!

Union Kills Twinkie the Kid!

RIP, Twinkie the Kid...

Talk about cutting off your nose despite your face...

The Bakers, Confectionary, Tobacco Workers and Grain Millers International Union or BCTGM  has killed Twinkie the Kid.  Because they refuse to make any concessions, the venerable 82 year old company Hostess will be shutting down and laying off 18,500 workers.  

Way to go union wonks!  Instead of pay and benefit cuts, 18,500 get 100% of NOTHING!  I mean heck, even the Teamsters were on board with Hostess.  But I guess I need to remember that Obama got reelected last week.  I guess the BCTGM union is counting on Obamaphones, 100 weeks of unemployment checks, Obamacare, and food stamps for doing nothing.  

Hmmmmmm.....  maybe that was their master plan from the beginning.

Chuck Woolery Chimes In On Assault Weapons- Must Watch!

Long-time SACSTW favorite and all-around good guy Chuck Woolery has a brand new video treatise out on assault rifles.  Loyal SACSTW readers know that the left's fanatical hoplophobia and obfuscation of the truth about guns is a sore spot with us.  We've talked about it in this space before.  Here's what Chuck has to say...

The real nugget in here is Ice-T's intellectually honest evaluation of the Second Amendment.  He's right, it has nothing to do with sport hunting, target shooting, or even personal self defense.  It has everything to do with the citizenry's ability to defend itself against a tyrannical government.  Methinks that is becoming more important every day.  Good on ya Chuck!

The Crew's Monday Morning Math Lesson

I suppose there is a reason I'm not in the election prediction business, it didn't go so well for me (or the country for that matter) last week.  I underestimated how thoroughly the progressivist entitlement cancer, seeded by Presidents Wilson and Roosevelt, had metastasized through the body of the American electorate.  

Since his re-election, Dear Leader has said that he will not support any fiscal plans that do not involve the rich paying higher taxes.  We've heard it all before, it's time for the rich to start "paying their fair share" in order to dig the country out of the financial hellhole it finds itself in.  

Attention Class, please open your Math With The Crew textbooks to page 27.  We will start today looking at tax data for 2009, as it is the most recent that is readily available. Let's establish some facts...
  • in 2009, the top 1% had a total Adjusted Gross Income (AGI) of 1.324 trillion dollars.
  • of that 1.324 trillion dollars, they paid 0.318 trillion dollars in federal income tax.
Let's say for the sake of this exercise, the federal government freezes spending today, and continues to operate indefinitely with the 1 trillion dollar annual deficit it currently has.  Given that the national debt is 16 trillion dollars, here is the question...

Q: How long will it take (based on 2009 data) to pay off the national debt if we taxed the top 1% at 100% of their adjusted gross income?  Scroll down for the answer.....

A:  The answer is a smidge under 267 years.  Yep, if we take every penny the top 1% make, and make sure the feds don't spend one more nickel a year than they do now,  we'll all be in high cotton in time for the 2279 Christmas shopping season.  Well, except for the top 1%, they'll all be broke.

 Class, repeat after me.....

The federal government is in this fiscal nightmare because of runaway spending, not because the top 1% are not paying their share.

Gee I Wish Obama was White!

You know devoted readers, I really wish Bronco Bama was white.  I'm really tired of every criticism of him and his big government socialistic policies somehow being racist.  I've seen some accusations that require  mental gymnastics with more spins and twists than a McKayla Maroney vault.  Granted there are some people out there making racist comments like:
  • At least I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean.
  • He is light-skinned African American with no Negro dialect.
Anyone who says something like that should be publicly shunned and should lose their jobs right?  Unfortunately, our fellow citizens decided that Joe Biden and Harry Reid deserve to keep their jobs.  Anyone who has any desire (and the stomach) to see a sample of how the "tolerant" left handles African Americans with whom they disagree, check out what they had to say about actress Stacey Dash on Twitter when she had the temerity to voice her support of Mitt Romney before the election. 

Fortunately, there are still a few intrepid Americans trying to educate our children about Obamanomics as Steven Crowder is doing in this hard-hitting video:

BUT WAIT!!!!!  How did I miss it!  He's wearing a brown bear costume.  You know... brown like African Americans have brown skin.  And a bear... you know that President Obama used to go by Barry. That's the most thinly veiled racist attack on the president I have ever seen!  I am embarrassed that I posted his video on my blog.  But rats!  I can't figure out how to delete it so it will have to stay.

Well, I guess I'll just have to live with four more years of The Crew and I being branded racists until 2016 when Hilary runs... and then we get to be sexist.  Buck up little campers.  At least it won't be boring.

America Needs You Today

"Ask not what your country can do for you - ask what you can do for your country."

John F. Kennedy   Jan.20, 1961

Never in the almost 52 years since Kennedy said those words have they been more important than today.  

Time and time again throughout its history, the United States of America has been there for others during their darkest hours.  It has been the brightest point of light for untold millions to look to for inspiration, hope, and the chance for freedom.

Today, it is America that is in need.  Please answer her pleas for help today at the ballot box.  This is our last chance to peacefully restore America to the path she has carved out over the last 236 years.  

Barack Obama's promise to "fundamentally transform" America will come to grotesque fruition in a second term.  Freed from the need to curry political favor, he will run roughshod over the Constitution, over your personal liberties, and over the very foundation of our country.  

Americans have always answered the call when others around the globe have been in need.  Today we are the ones in need.  Please vote today to save this great country.

Monday Musings With The Crew

  • Barack Obama is a nasty piece of work, and only getting nastier as his personal Waterloo approaches.  Campaigning in Ohio on Friday, he exhorted supporters to not boo Mitt Romney, but vote because "voting is the best revenge".  Do you really need to know anything else about this petulant child?  Listen Barry, if anyone should be voting out of revenge, it is conservatives who despise what you have done to our country.  But we don't vote out of spite or revenge.  As Mitt Romney commented, we vote out of "love of country".  We don't want revenge.  We just want you to go away.
  • Apparently, so does Joe Biden.  At a campaign stop in Wisconsin on Friday, Jokin' Joe said this...."There's never been a day in the last 4 years that I've been proud to be his vice-president.  Not one single day".  

Believe me Mr. Vice-President, we feel your pain........

  • Can any of the talking heads and political pundits claim a 94.4% accuracy in predicting presidential election results?  The Washington Redskins can.  By losing to the Carolina Panthers yesterday, the 'Skins have all but guaranteed a Romney victory tomorrow.  In 17 of the last 18 elections, the Redskin Rule has been accurate.  A loss in their last home game before the election results in a loss for the incumbent President.  
  • Finally, here is what you all have been waiting for....the Crew's prediction for tomorrow.  Fourteen months ago, I predicted a defeat for Obama 2012 when a Republican won a special election in New York's 9th Congressional district.  I'm not backing off now.  Special janitorial crews have been sent into the offices and broadcast studios at MSNBC to remove all scissors, shoelaces, letter openers, and any other instruments that MSNBC personalities may use to harm themselves as the rout becomes inevitable tomorrow night.  
Romney  52%
Obama 45%

Romney wins a minimum of 300 electoral college votes

So dear reader, do what I am going to do tomorrow night.  Order a pizza, crack open a cold one, and watch as the American people strike another blow for life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
