Centralia Is Still Burning

As a native of Pennsylvania and the great-grandson of a coal miner, I would probably be remiss if I failed to take note of the fact that Sunday, 27 May 2012, will be the 50th anniversary of the start of the Centralia Coal Mine fire, a tragedy which has, in the intervening fifty years, killed a pretty little town in the mountains southwest of the place in which I grew up.

The whole sorry affair seems, from beginning to end, to come down to stupidity and arrogance, always a dangerous combination (see President Barack Obama).  What a crying shame.

Clown Gerry Attempts To Extend His Reach

I suppose it isn't bad enough that Eleventh Congressional District Congressman Gerry Connolly (D-WaPo) holds Virginia's Right to Work law in contempt, and is a wholly-owned subsidiary of downtown international labor unions in (mis)representing his constituency.

Now, he's trying to stick his nose into Wisconsin, and aid far-Left attempts to recall Governor Scott Walker for daring to challenge union power and special privileges in that state by accusing Governor Walker of perjury.  Along with other union-boss apologists Elijah Cummings and Christopher Murphy, Connolly is complaining that Walker may have "lied" under oath because he failed to disclose a casual conversation with a constituent, and comes up with a politically-contrived "contradiction" between Governor Walker's answer and what Connolly thinks he said.

Fortunately, it appears that Connolly has hitched is wagon to a fading star, as recent internal Democrat polls show a surge for Governor Walker going into the last two weeks of the campaign.

Connolly really needs to replace that union "bug" on his campaign materials with the old RCA Victor logo.  You remember: the one with the dog sitting next to the Victrola, listening to his master's voice?

Would someone please retire this clown?  Hoe's an embarrassment not only to Northern Virginia, but to the Commonwealth as a whole.

Bring It On!

President Barry formally declared war today.

His war is on American/Christian/Western Culture.  And he has declared himself the enemy.

It remains to be seen whether he is damaged more by his prior flip-flopping on the issue, or by his alignment with the radical homosexual agenda.

Yeah. This Will Do Him Some Good

As someone old enough to remember the disaster which was the Administration of Jimmy Carter, this is commentary designed to not aid President Barry's chances for reelection.  Zbigniew Brzezinski, Carter's National Security Adviser, should perhaps explain the foreign-policy disaster which was Carter's presidency before reviewing President Barry's performance.
