Middle Class Hero Lizzie Warren: "I love little businesses" (JWF)

Now that we've all been caught lying about the incendiary class warfare of Elizabeth Warren and Barack Obama, it's about time the non-Cherokee Harvard professor set us all straight. Appearing with the non-partisan newsman Al Sharpton on MSNBC last night, Warren let America know she really, really likes small businesses because some of her non-Native American relatives themselves have started up their own.

SHARPTON: Now, how do you respond to this new ad from Senator Brown?

WARREN: You know, this is just one more attempt to not talk about the central issues. But the way I look at this: I love little businesses. My daughter started a small business, my brother started a small business, my Aunt Alice started a small business--I worked in it when I was a teenager.

Apparently Aunt Alice's restaurant was in violation of child labor laws, if we're to believe Warren.
She started waiting tables at 13 at her Aunt Alice’s Mexican restaurant.
I notice her bio page doesn't claim credit for creating the intellectual foundation for the Occupy Wall Street anarchists.

Meanwhile, Obama was out in the Bay Area at a series of lavish fundraisers, including one attended by some Solyndra honchos.

And the GOP is loving the sight of Westly at the Obama fundraiser. Also spotted was Matt Rogers, an ex-Department of Energy adviser, who helped approve Solyndra’s loan.

No sooner were the lemons in the air than the Republican National Commitee had made lemonade out of it:

“Looks like some of the central characters in the Solyndra scandal and other green energy controversies gave up even more money for the Obama campaign tonight,” quips Matt Connelly of the RNC. “And is there any more fitting metaphor for the failures of Obama’s green energy program than one of them juggling lemons?”

Ouch.

So after spending $100 million distorting Mitt Romney's record at Bain Capital, Obama whined about Romney distorting his attack on small businesses.
"Knowingly twisting my words to suggest I don't value small business. In politics, we all tolerate a certain amount of spin. I understand those are the games that get played in political campaigns. Although, when folks like omit entire sentences of what you said, they start kind of splicing and dicing, you may have gone a little over the edge there.”
Obama's speech in Roanoke doesn't need to be distorted in any way. His ugly class warfare was plain for all to see. But now he's worried his "vision" is distorted. As to that:
A stimulus bill equivalent to 1,567 Golden Gate bridges. A 2011 federal budget equivalent to 6,788 Golden Gate bridges. And yet we don't have a single one.

Because that's not what Big Government does: Money-no-object government spends more and more money for less and less objects. For all the American economy has to show for it, President Bob the Builder took just shy of a trillion dollars in stimulus, stuck it in his wheelbarrow, pushed it halfway across the Golden Gate Bridge, and tossed it into the Pacific.

Instead of roads and bridges, Obama-sized government funds stasis and sclerosis: The Hoover Dam of regulatory obstruction, the Golden Gateway to dependency. Last month, 80,000 Americans signed on to new jobs, but 85,000 Americans signed on for Social Security disability checks. Most of these people are not "disabled" as that term is generally understood. Rather, it's the U.S. economy that's disabled, and thus Obama incentivizes dependency.

The words of Obama and Warren will justifiably haunt them the rest of this campaign cycle. Any pathetic attempt to tell voters they didn't see what they saw should be met with only derision and mockery.

Elizabeth Warren is anything you want her to be. And anything she decides she wants to be.

Indian, Mexican, Oppressed feminist academic, a floor wax, a desert topping, a guest on Al Sharpton's propaganda-fest.

She's a politician. The very model of the modern politician.

And those oh so very smaht people in Massachusetts will probably elect her as a Senator. Massachusetts must have some of the very dumbest rubes in the country. And they make fun of other people. They elected that crooked lying dirt-bag Kennedy again and again, elected Deval Patrick, and will probably elect this lying imbecile. Because they are oh so very smaht.

33 Oh, Democrats love small businesses- they're the easiest to steal from. Big (or even mid-sized) businesses can afford to pay someone to take the time to make sure they have the optimal tax structure. Small businesses tend not to have those kinds of resources, and so pay a higher percentage of taxes.

51 Isn't Lizzie's "I love small businesses" a bit like "I have black friends?"

How many, Lizzie, how many of those houses you helped yourself to during foreclosure--so you could make a hefty profit--how many were small business owners who had taken out a second mortgage on their business and lost it all because they couldn't keep up with the regulations and burdens of your type of government?

How many times, Lizzie, how many times have you profited off of the misfortune and hardship of small business owners?

Love 'em? I bet you do love them. You love it when you can swoop in and take their house for pennies on the dollar.

95 "Okay, maybe not "best ever," but really freaking good."

I have added it to my mental list of places I see on Triple D that I want to try if I ever find myself in that city. Done.

While I've never gone to a place that claimed to be a Mexican restaraunt outside of TX, I've learned enough from other "expectations" in food from my occassional travels.

Ordered a spicy shrimp pasta dish at a Seattle restaraunt first time I was there. I was in a pretty macho mood, so I asked the waiter, "How spicy are you talking?" He assured me it was quite hot. I told him not to let the chef pull any punches.

It was the same level of "spicy" that you or I would rate the salsa at El Chico.

108 CAIRO - Egyptian President Mohamed Mursi has asked Hisham Kandil, a relatively young water minister little known outside Egypt, to form a new government, disappointing investors who had hoped for a high-profile economy specialist.

Kandil was a senior bureaucrat in the ministry until he was appointed minister in July last year after the fall of President Hosni Mubarak. He obtained a doctorate in irrigation from the University of North Carolina in the United States in 1993, according to the water ministry's Facebook page.


A spokesman for Mursi, the Muslim Brotherhood politician sworn in as Egypt's first freely elected president on June 30, described Kandil as an "independent patriot" who had not belonged to a party either before or after the popular uprising against Mubarak, according to the state news agency.

Yet Kandil's beard has generated speculation that he has Islamist sympathies. He has denied being affiliated to any Islamist group, but told Al Jazeera in an interview last year he had grown his beard out of a sense of religious duty.

"Religious Duty"--Oh yeah promising development. I bet hillary's trip there sure helped?

---
Geography. Tex Mex is Mex in Tex. Many Californians will say the Tex-Mex does not qualify as Mexican food as Cal-Mex (not an actual common term used) is. Some refer to Tex-Mex as crappy Mexican food. Tex-Mex could be defined as (Northern) Mexican street food served on a plate with stuff poured over it. Many Texans consider Tex-Mex the only authentic Mexican food outside of Mexico while others consider it the only authentic Mexican food anywhere.

Rule of thumb: the closer you are to the Mexican border, the hotter the food gets. In New Braunfels, I wouldn't order anything over a 3. And then I might want a glass of milk.

One of our family friends regularly produces a kind of hot sauce. I know that habaneros are the primary pepper used, but not the hottest one in the sauce.

About ten minutes after eating, it all came back up rather abruptly.

170 The Department of Justice is investigating whether Pennsylvania’s new voter ID law is discriminatory, according to a letter released Monday.
Specifically, the department is reviewing Pennsylvania Act No. 18 (2012), which establishes the requirement to show proof of identity to be able to vote, according to the document.
The Justice Department requested data on the state’s registered voters in an effort to analyze whether those who lack the proper identification are disproportionately minorities.
The move by the Justice Department could be a step toward a federal lawsuit under the 1965 Voting Rights Act. Lawsuits against several others states for voter ID laws have already been filed.
Supporters of the laws cite anecdotal cases of fraud as a reason that states need to do more to secure elections, but the Republican National Lawyers Association last year published a report that identified only some 400 election fraud prosecutions over a decade across the entire country.
Pennsylvania’s law will be challenged in state court later this week as civil rights groups argue the legislation makes it too difficult for the general public to vote.
Pennsylvania is one of 11 states to pass voter ID laws since 2010.


Does this Justice Department do ANYTHING other than try to fuck with elections?

182 She really called them "little businesses"? Really?

Does she not understand how condescending that sounds?

Not that she cares, she IS condescending.

183 So, they're running with the out-of-context defense.

Exactly quoting a politician is now wrong? OK. But: The context is worse than the quote. Pay attention to the parts about how there are lots of people who work hard and lots of smart people. It's all a poorly reasoned conclusion that successful business owners somehow succeeded through unfairness. And the unfairness is that they used resources for which we all paid. Which unfairness he means to remedy through additional levies, taxes and fees. This notion, that if you've ever received any help from any person or entity (even if you paid for it) then you are forever indebted to such is so wrong--there is no logical endpoint to the mischief, misery and servitude under such a scheme. No good end to the "I helped you once so now and forever you owe me and must do as I say."

It's not freedom.

We have another word for the condition where a man is never free of his obligation to another.

184 The move by the Justice Department could be a step toward a federal
lawsuit under the 1965 Voting Rights Act. Lawsuits against several
others states for voter ID laws have already been filed.




Actually they are suing under the theory of "disparate impact" which is entirely a fabrication of the liberal courts.

186 EOJ - I agree. Heat for the sake of heat is pointless. First thing that comes to mind are these stupid "flamin' hot Cheetos." There is no cheese flavor that I can detect. Only the "flavor" of caspaicin. If I wanted that, I'd spritz my tongue with pepper-spray.

Heat with flavor is fantastic.

And heat with an inflated sense of invincibility is hilarious.

Military pilots routinely stop in San Antonio for "fuel," and time it to coincide with almuerzo. Body fuel is as important as airplane fuel, and the standard refrain to "why are you fueling in SAT" is because that's where the Tex-Mex lives.

193 speaking of heat...

are raw garlics supposed to be hot?

My throat has been hurting bad for a coupke of days. So I looked up online for relief remedies. They said garlic or salt water gargle might help.

I went and bought a garlic. Took a bite and my mouth was in flames.

201 Yes, raw garlic is very potent. It's also very good for you, I'd recommend eating it in smaller portions with plenty of milk for health benefits.

Eating a clove of raw garlic is pretty spicy.

206 On the other hand, if you find yourself in Carlsbad, NM, go to Roja's
Mexican Cafe. Best. Molé. Ever. Okay, maybe not "best ever," but really
freaking good.


Aahh! no Mole' to be had in MontCoMD where most of the TexMex is actually El-Salvadorans.

There is an Indian, married to a Costa Rican, runs a place down the street with some really neat dishes. A little red curry in the beef stew, grilled cauliflower.

No time for lunch today.

Speaking of Tex-Mex, a place in Pearland, TX (Lila's) serves a grilled beef fajita with BACON sizzling on a steel platter with onions and green peppers. Mmmmm.
