Well its happened again. I authored a Last Word critical of Obama’s actions and policy in relation the the wild fires in Texas and once again Don Schindler had to shoot himself in the foot and make all Democrats look like liars, deceivers and dunces even after the drubbing he and the other guy got the last time for their non or at best semi factual comments. This time he tried pissing on our legs and telling us it was fire suppressant instead of rain.
Since I know most of you still stubbornly cling to the e-mail way of accessing the blog and can’t see the comments made on the issue OR the responses if we want to to see them we are forced to do extra work (thanks just what I need). I was fairly annoyed at the thought of having to lose yet another Last Word to disputing inane moronic liberal lies and half facts with the truth because some idiot has a learning curve flatter than a straight edge and cannot grasp the simple fact that their liberal brand of bullshit don’t fly here in plain English.
Below is the transcript of his comments and my response then I will make a couple of follow on warning comments about posting and integrity, some thing the democratic Obama zombies who have “graced” our comments section have showing a sore lack of and distain for so far.
The White House shot back Tuesday at Texas Republicans accusing the president of treating the state unfairly when it comes to disaster assistance.
“This administration has been extremely responsive to the state of Texas’ requests for fire management assistance grants,” press secretary Jay Carney said aboard Air Force One, as President Barack Obama headed to El Paso to talk about immigration and border security.
At last count, all 25 of the state’s requests for such grants – a subset of federal disaster aid – have been approved, he noted. But Texas officials want a declaration of a “major disaster,” which would unleash even more aid.
“In each case, the federal government, the federal taxpayer is paying 75 percent of the cost of fighting these fires in Texas,” Carney said, noting that the president has signed plenty of disaster declarations, when warranted, for states that voted Republican in 2008. “There is no discrimination here between red and blue states.”
Once again Don you’re only quoting the parts that make your Messiah look good and conveniently not citing your source to hide the fact. The article you quote continues at some un-Obama-flattering length:
I will not rest until this assault on Texas is rectified,” said Rep. Francisco “Quico” Canseco, R-Texas, whose district covers a huge swath of West Texas. He called it “unconscionable” to ignore impact on acreage bigger than Rhode Island and Delaware combined.
Texas Gov. Rick Perry and Texas Sens. John Cornyn and Kay Bailey Hutchison, all Republicans, have pressed Obama to tour the Texas wildfire damage, hoping to persuade him to reverse the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s rejection of requests for major disaster aid.
Perry also sought a meeting with Obama, to press the case both for more wildfire aid and for another 1,000 National Guard troops along the border, a longstanding demand.
Both the White House and governor’s office say Perry was offered a short meeting on the tarmac in El Paso. Perry spokesman Katherine Cesinger said that was too far to go for limited face time.
“We invited him to meet with the president, and he declined the invitation,” Carney said. “We have also in the past offered him a National Security Council briefing (on border security). He declined that as well.”

That’s the SECOND time you’ve tried the “Obama Obfuscation” maneuver on us here and second time you’ve pissed on our leg, this time telling us it was ” wild fire suppressant”. Third time will get your comments permanently moderated for excessive bullshit and Democratic deception.
Now if my tone thus far has sounded peevish and testy that’s because I am peevish and testy over this. NOT over there being a dissenting comment regarding what I wrote or that it was apparently carried in exactly TWO papers that I could find, (one of which carried the entire story which was the Boston Globe while the Dallas Morning News simply gives you two lines without paying for their paper all the rest the sites simply linking back to the Dallas Morning News) but because AGAIN Don’s comment DELIBERATELY totally distorted the news article through selective editing and posting to make Obama appear persecuted.
When we post positions,opinions and Last Words in which we quote articles or cite facts we have the integrity to to cite source at the bottom and even identify when we have included for brevity’s sake only the salient points of the article. We go out of our way to research our subject to make sure we have accurate hard facts that are verifiable. Occasionally we DO make a mistake and something in error does slip by. When it does we acknowledge it and correct it to the best of our abilities.
While we have repeatedly said and will continue to say we welcome open debate and opposing view points THAT IS NOT AN INVITATION TO TAKE US FOR GULIBLE IDOTS (a.k.a. fellow Democrats, Liberals, and believers in Global Warming or Chemtrails). HOWEVER if any of you, ESPECIALLY you fact twisting Democratic Obama Zombiebots are going to “grace” us with your presence and comments be adult and professional enough to:
- Not insult us and our readers by attempting to baffle us with bullshit. Use provable facts.
- DO NOT selectively post from articles out of context in an attempt to make the article sound pro Obama or his position.
- Cite your sources
FROM NOW ON we will repost comments in regular issues under the Response and Rebuttal banner IF you follow these simple guidelines. If you DO NOT follow them you’ll get ONE (probably very public) warning. If you are going to annoy us by refusing to follow our rules then expect us to enjoy ourselves by making a public fool out of you particularly when you make it so inviting and easy.
The second time your comment will be removed and you will be relegated to commenting hell, which in WordPress terms, means we will tell the blog site to treat any comment out of you as Spam. In practical terms this means nothing you attempt to post will never see the light of day and go straight into the trash evermore. This has been done twice already so please don’t think its an empty threat.
By now the liberals in the readership closet are foaming at the mouth and about to bellow the war cry “CENSORSHIP!” a few other of you may even well be saying, “you know Lethal that DOES sound sort of like censorship” Nae, nae gentle reader! On the contrary, we are simply setting a level of standards that have to be met to present opposing view points here. Why should the bar be set any lower for commenters than for ourselves? As Impish correctly pointed out when we discussed this matter, “You cannot have a meaningful discussion or debate without hard facts. To even attempt to do so when one side ort the other choses not to present factual responses is a waste of time and down right frustrating.” Why should these people be able to waste your and our time while simultaneously granting them the opportunity to continue to perpetuate their lies and myths? These 3 simple rules will insure they cannot and the penalties for trying to provide motivation not to even try.
