I just love Human Events. Even though it feels my inbox with what seems like a billion messages every day, articles and lists like the one below make it totally worth it. Below is a list of the top 10 dumbest quotes by democrats about healthcare.
“I don’t want the folks who created the mess to do a lot of talking. I want them just to get out of the way so we can clean up the mess. I don’t mind cleaning up after them, but don’t do a lot of talking.” — President Obama at an August 6 at a rally in Virginia
“They’re carrying swastikas and symbols like that to a town meeting on health care.” — House Speaker Nancy Pelosi in an August 5 interview
“What good is reading the bill if it’s a thousand pages and you don’t have two days and two lawyers to find out what it means after you read the bill?” — Rep. John Conyers (Mich.) at the National Press Club, July 24
“These disruptions are occurring because opponents are afraid not just of differing views — but of the facts themselves. Drowning out opposing views is simply un-American.” — House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (Calif.) and Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (Md.), writing in USA Today, August 10
“The last time I had to confront something like this was when I voted for the civil rights bill and my opponent voted against it. At that time, we had a lot of Ku Klux Klan folks and white supremacists and folks in white sheets and other things running around causing trouble.” — Rep. John Dingell (Mich.), on MSNBC
“What we’re seeing right now is close to Brown Shirt tactics.“ — Rep. Brian Baird, (Wash.) told a local newspaper
“The last time I saw well-dressed people doing this, was when Al Gore asked me to go down to Florida when they were recounting the ballots, and I was confronted with the same type of people.” — Sen. Barbara Boxer (Calif.)
“I hope people will take a jaundiced eye to what is clearly the Astroturf nature of so-called grassroots lobbying … The Astroturf nature of grassroots lobbying, which is largely the term for, you know, this is manufactured anger.” — White House spokesman Robert Gibbs
“Republicans and their allied groups — desperate after losing two consecutive elections and every major policy fight on Capitol Hill — are inciting angry mobs of a small number of rabid right-wing extremists funded by K Street lobbyists to disrupt thoughtful discussions about the future of healthcare in America taking place in congressional districts across the country.” — Democratic National Committee communications director Brad Woodhouse
“These are nothing more than destructive efforts to interrupt a debate that we should have, and are having. They are doing this because they don’t have any better ideas … It’s really simple: They‘re taking their cues from talk-show hosts, Internet rumor-mongerers and insurance rackets.” — Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (Nev.)
“Wait a minute. Wait a minute. Wait a minute. Wait a minute. Wait a minute. Wait a minute. Wait a minute. Wait a minute. Wait a minute. Wait a minute. Wait a minute. Wait a minute.” — Sen. Arlen Specter (Pa.), responding to a town hall participant

Charlie Rangel can’t seem to understand the tax code, which is excusable because most liberals can’t. However, there’s one catch. Charlie Rangel is in charge of the committee that writes the tax code. You would think someone that spends his time writing and editing our million page tax code would have a pretty good handle on what is good and what is illegal, but of course that makes too much sense. Instead, the spitting image of Dracula seems to think that rental property income is tax-exempt and the price of other properties flunctuates with the mood he’s in. Well, it doesn’t seem to work that way for the rest of us. Here are the details on Charlie’s latest little tax dilema:
Most know of Charlie’s tax dodging ways when it came to his rental property in the Dominican Republic. He was just slightly confused with the fine print that he wrote, and thought that his out-of-country property was there tax-free. Since he’s a liberal, he got a slight slap on the wrist from Queen of Congress, Nancy Pelosi, and was told he could pay up if he felt so inclined. But apparently he didn’t learn then (In his defense, I don’t know why he’d learn a lesson. He didn’t get in trouble.), and now is cheating his own rules once again. The latest little omition from his taxes was a house that he sold in Washington, in addition to a home that changed value three times over a few year span; going from $50,000 to $100,000, then even as high as $5oo,000. Of course Charlie sites the changes and omition as simple mistakes that could happen to anyone. Well he is right about that; however, if anyone else had made these so-called “mistakes” they’d be sitting in the tax-evasion dungeon underneath Charlie’s office. How ironic.
Charlie’s got to go. And all the other tax cheats, evaders, and the loophole posse can follow him on his walk of shame. I consider myself a forgiving person, but come on. Whose anyone kidding that Count Rangula (Had to) wasn’t fully aware of his alleged “mistake”? No one with a half a brain buys that bull crap. We have got to start extending the same punishments to those with power that we common folk are faced with. We don’t get fifty million chances to get it right; they actually expect us to *GASP* obey the law. Something needs to be immediately done with Rangel, Geithner, and the rest of the tax-evasion crew. How about they pay back what they owe, inluding penalties? That’s a start.
What do you think about the tax-evaders running amok in our government? I know, let’s all just make “mistakes” on our taxes and see if we just get a warning. How does that sound? Leave your comments on this below or e-mail us at email@example.com.
That’s right, we’ve come to the end of our quest to find the conspirator of WikiGate. Of the 5 suspects (Nancy Pelosi, Barney Frank, Al Gore, Joy Behar, and Michael Moore) who do you think edited Barack’s Wikipedia page to eliminate some shadier details of his past? Review over the evidence and vote in the poll below to decide who you think is the head conspirator!
Mail Bag, which highlights e-mails and comments worth a second look.
The presence of The Conservative Journal on many different blog ranking sites, all of which can be found on the top of the right sidebar. This week, The Conservative Journal worked it’s way into the Top 10 of several of the ranking sites during the heat of the Meghan McCain saga. I guess we reported on it the best here? 🙂
The WikiGate Project, which is aimed to find the conspirator of the campaign to rid Barack’s Wikipedia entry of anything not deemed 100% good.
Top 1o Posts and Pages of the Week
Be sure to check these out, everyone else seemed to like them!
This could be the most obvious poll that will ever be on the site, but here are the results: 77% of readers of The Conservative Journal are more conservative, while 23% identify more with liberal viewpoints. To those 23% in the minority: I’m glad you here! Rally some more of liberal friends so we get some comment debates going! Seriously though, thank you to all that voted and read The Conservative Journal!
This results of this poll are a lot closer than I expected: When asked whose side Conservative Journal readers were (Either Jim Cramer or Jon Stewart) on in their little feud, 53% sided with Jon Stewart, and 39% sided with Jim Cramer; with the remaining 8% having no opinion. I voted for Jim Cramer because I think his show is funnier, but I wasn’t expecting many to vote for him. Guess everyone agrees?
March 16th- Internet problems prevented a poll on this day.
In this poll, 63% thought that Laura Ingraham crossed the line with her “plus-sized model” comment to Meghan McCain, 23% think America needs to lighten up, and the remaining 14% don’t care about either one of them enough to form an opinion. Once again, on this one I went with Laura Ingraham crossing the line initially, though after hearing the full context of the comments I don’t think they were that bad.
On this random issue, the vote was almost split exactly as the “Liberal or Conservative?” poll, with 74% siding with the more conservative “Pro-life” option, and the remaining 26% going with the generally liberal choice of “Pro-choice”. Of course, I went “Pro-life” on this one.
We posted this before news of his apology, and 74% of those polled said that B.O. needed to apologize for his remarks, with the remaining 26% thinking that America needs to lighten up and laugh. While I did vote that B.O. needed to apologize (glad he did do that), I generally side with America needing to lighten up. For someone that campaigned on a platform of hope, change, and equality this was a low blow.
That’s right. I know he does because just hours after I called for his apology regarding the ‘Special Olympics’ comment on Jay Leno, he did. How do I know he read it here, you ask? Well, because I can tell, that’s why. Alright, so regardless of whether or not he read it here, B.O. did apologize for his remarks. He called chairman of the Special Olympics, Tim Shriver, to express his apologies and then went on to say some of the competitors were more than welcome to visit the White House for bowling or basketball. Well that was nice B.O., and to think I doubted you. Well now that I know you read this blog I have some more advice for you: fire turbe-tax Geithner, fire Nancy Pelosi, fire all of congress, stop being a socialist, and quit spending all the money you can get your hands on. Now get to work, that’s only the beginning!

Al Gore reminding everyone he invented this internet.
Al Gore is liberal enough to want the the Golden Boy to exist blemish-free, but he doesn’t have as much of a relationship with Barack as some of the other suspects. Still, his liberalness could very well have been a motive behind changing the entry. Look at the data below and decide for youself:
Al is a tech savvy guy. He’s got to know how to adjust his solar panels that he doesn’t really have to just the right wattage output to run his trillion square-foot Tennessee home. So that in itself gives him the immediate upper-hand when compared to Pelosi and Frank. Also, Al is used to having to swoop in and edit something online in order to save face. Just look at all those times his global warming numbers were proven false; he quickly pulled a ‘select all’, ‘delete’, ‘paste’ numerous times and had his global warming bull crap numbers changed to another set that we could all try and disprove. Also worth noting, Al Gore invented the internet.
Al doesn’t have as close ties with B.O. as most suspects. Though they have similar political stances, they aren’t as close of friends and their paths don’t meet quite as much. Also, Al is no doubt still bitter that his presidential prospects were cut short in 2000, and probably views Barack like the rest of us (an uninformed little punk) regardless of political view similarity.
Al Gore could be the dark horse in the race to find the conspirator of WikiGate. He is not really a suspect in most people’s eyes, which could be one of the reasons he felt safe committing the act. Don’t forget to check-in in the next few days to vote for who you think is behind this scandal.
Thanks for participating!

Hmmm, could the senile sea hag have edited the page?
No surprise here; everyone knows Princess Pelosi has a huge crush on Barack. But is it enough to swoop in and fix his Wikipedia page? We believe we have information that proves she did.
With Pelosi’s military jet use, she could have easily edited the entry on the go. Not only that, but Pelosi is a rabid Obama fan and an ardent liberal. Having Obama’s association with his pastor in the publica eye will not due for her. Crazy-eyes Pelosi also clearly has a lot of downtime, as evidenced by her excessive cheerfulness and clapping at Obama’s address to the nation. So, clearly, Pelosi had plenty of time to edit the entry, as well as the resources and the motive.
Pelosi is hundreds of years old, she’s senile, and probably doesn’t know how to even access the internet. Creating a Wikipedia account and then editing the entry would have been a great challenge for her, and then probably caused an aneurysm in the process. This may serve to eliminate a suspect that seemed so promising in the beginning. I mean, how many of you were suspecting it was Pelosi the whole time?
Although Pelosi certainly has the motive to comit such a herioc act, the fact that she was born pre-electricity casts doubt on her ability to even use the internet, much less edit a Wikipedia entry. I personally do not believe it was her, but you will have the final say in the vote that will occur next week. We’ll have to see how the other’s stack up.
Thanks for reading and participating in this nonsense!
Princess Pelosi runs the show, and for some I reason I have a problem with that.
Anyone that thinks we lost the royal family with the Declaration of Independence is sadly mistaken. Princess Nancy Patricia D’Alsendro Pelosi (No, I did not make that up) is reigning emperess of these fine United States, and no one’s going to convince her otherwise.
The latest chapter in her multi-part, made-for-tv drama consists of Princess P being an air plane hog and demanding that military jets are at her disposal at all times. In fact, she and her team of nitwits are sure to book a military plane, at the taxpayers expense no less, every weekend in case P gets the urge to go shopping on 5th Avenue across the country in New York, or in case she gets really bored at one of those stupid congress sessions and wants to make a bee line for the vineyard/San Fransisco estate/Magic fairy princess castle. Now, of course, her preferred mode of transportation is enchanted unicorn, but a private military jet that she travels on free of charge will do just fine (I hear B.O. has the unicorn reserved so he can travel more efficiently when ruining our foreign relations. I wonder what kind of fuel economy a unicorn gets?). Also, an official at the Defense Department said that Pelosi often cancels flights the day of the scheduled flight; far too late for anyone to take the scheduled flight instead and wasting millions of our dollars in flight prep work. Think of all the money we’d save if Mystical Sea Hag Pelosi just flew commercial!
Subject: i need a air plane pleze.

Alright, alright, these are obviously not the real e-mails (all errors are intentional), but they are what I imagined they said before looking at the real e-mails. These are all in good fun; if you take offense by them please don’t let me know. 🙂

Nancy Pelsoi is one of the richest members of Congress, yet she won’t pay for her own personal flights, and requires a private military jet every time she travels. She is an arrogant, elitist snob that has no clue what normal life is like in America. When people with a skewed view of society are in power they can’t make decisions that are meant to benefit the common-folk. I’m not saying we should shun Princess P for her financial success, but her “I run this joint” attitude proves she’s not capable of seeing the world from an everyday American’s perspective. Unless she sees herself through our eyes, she will never hang up the tiara and do what’s best for America.

Ahh, I just love a good bailout. Don’t worry about being responsible with your money, Nancy Pelosi and her squad of liberals will be at your door very shortly with a whopping check to “solve” all your troubles!
Hopefully, everyone sees the sarcasm in that. My opinion is actually completely opposite of that. I DESPISE the current love affair the democrats in congress have with bailouts. They seem to have the mindset that the more money you throw at the problem the better off we are and everyone is happy. False. The kool-aid drinkers are happy, but those that understand the economy are left scratching their heads. It blows my mind as to why they continue proposing these bailouts that clearly don’t work. The first economic stimulus package failed to do anything, so they are proposing a new one. Of course! If at first $170 billion doesn’t jump-start the economy, throw another package right on down! That doesn’t even make sense. Now, they have a package designed to specifically bailout Detroit. No, not their dreadful football team (For those that don’t follow football, the have lost all 8 of their games so far), but the automakers in Detroit. They are now proposing $50 billion to give to struggling automakers, and while I know the auto companies certainly need some help, this is not the right way to go. My main point with this rant is where will all this end? Are we going to continue bailing out every industry in the nation until every executive get’s their spa trip at a luxurious resort? Something needs to be done. At the rate we’re going, I wouldn’t be surprised if tomorrow Pelosi speaks on a bailout for struggling lemonade stands across the country. Eventually you have to draw the line, and most sensible people would have drawn after the first stimulus failed to make even a knick in the economy.
