Hey GQ, Can’t Find Any Crazy Democrats? Here’s 16

 

Hey GQ, can’t find any crazy Democrats? Here’s 16

 

 

 

 In a survey of the “Craziest Politicians of 2014,” GQ had difficulty locating any Democrats. Seventeen out of 20 on the list were Republicans, with the only liberals being Texas Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, Georgia Rep. Hank Johnson and America’s reigning nabob of nuttiness, Joe Biden.

  In a note appended to the story, GQ defensively said it wasn’t guilty of “standard liberal-media bias,” it just couldn’t find any loony Democrats to speak of.

  Let’s give GQ a little help, shall we? Here are 16 more Democrats to the list of the most cra-cra political figures. “

Teens Defend ‘Fail Factory’ School In Error-Filled Letters

 

Teens defend ‘fail factory’ school in error-filled letters

” Earlier this month, The Post exposed a scheme at Manhattan’s Murry Bergtraum HS for Business Careers in which failing students could get full credit without attending class, but instead watch video lessons and take tests online. One social-studies teacher had a roster of 475 students in all grades and subjects.

  Red-faced administrators encouraged a student letter-writing campaign to attack The Post and defend its “blended learning” program. Eighteen kids e-mailed to argue that their alma mater got a bad rap.

  Almost every letter was filled with spelling, grammar and punctuation errors.

  A junior wrote: “What do you get of giving false accusations im one of the students that has blended learning I had a course of English and I passed and and it helped a lot you’re a reported your support to get truth information other than starting rumors . . .

  Another wrote: “To deeply criticize a program that has helped many students especially seniors to graduate I should not see no complaints.

  One student said the online system beats the classroom because “you can digest in the information at your own paste.

“ Us as New York City Students deserve respect and encouragement,” one letter read. “We are the future of New York City and for some students, The future of the country.”

  A Murry Bergtraum teacher said, “I am embarrassed that the school will graduate students who write this poorly.” “

” Hurricane Sandy hit October 29, 2012 near Brigantine, New Jersey, and terrorized 24 states up and down the East Coast. A year later, people are still recovering from an estimated $65 billion in damage. These photos capture the destruction of New York City and Long Island, New York.”

— And May Be Hiding More

 ” The Obama re-election campaign has accepted at least one foreign donation in violation of the law — and does nothing to check on the provenance of millions of dollars in other contributions, a watchdog group alleges.

Chris Walker, a British citizen who lives outside London, told The Post he was able to make two $5 donations to President Obama’s campaign this month through its Web site while a similar attempt to give Mitt Romney cash was rejected. It is illegal to knowingly solicit or accept money from foreign citizens.

Walker said he used his actual street address in England but entered Arkansas as his state with the Schenectady, NY, ZIP code of 12345.”

  “A $500,000 Port Authority patrol boat sank this month after a veteran police sergeant took the advice of a clueless civilian safety instructor — and opened a hatch while it was under water, The Post has learned.

“It was like opening a window during a carwash,” one PA insider lamented of the screw-up off Breezy Point, Queens, that left 11 people scrambling for their lives.

Nobody was seriously injured, but eight cops and three civilians had to either swim to safety or be rescued as the 37-foot M-2 model Moose Boats craft sank 40 feet to the ocean floor about 300 yards off shore.”

Party of the People ? Yeah Right

 

Dems weak on corporate crime

 

  “Judging by the records of the last two Democratic administrations, just the opposite appears to be true. Certainly, President Obama and, to some extent, Bill Clinton like to talk a good game in terms of class warfare, but under both men, real corporate crime-fighting has been at best a side issue — despite the immense amounts of white-collar fraud their administrations faced. In fact, neither Obama nor Clinton can hold a candle to the corporate crime-fighting record of George W. Bush, that supposed lapdog for large corporate interests.

Consider: As we near the four-year anniversary of the financial crisis, not a single Wall Street fat cat has been charged with violations of securities laws in connection with the 2008 collapse.”

” It’s a battle for America’s heartland “

  “To see why the choice of Clint Eastwood as the surprise guest speaker at last night’s close of the
Republican Convention was so brilliant, look at the electoral map.

   The Democrats, thanks to their dominance of the big cities, control the West Coast and the Northeast — plus (as long as the dead voters of Cook County can still get to the polls) President Obama’s home state of Illinois. The GOP dominates the South, the Plains and the Rocky Mountain states.”

” Trash-talking veep’s Tampa tantrum”

” Such trash talk is typical of the increasingly deracinated veep, whose motor mouth now seems beyond the control of even campaign consigliere David Axelrod’s well-oiled media
machine.

   But what’s really behind this stunning example of in-your-face poor sportsmanship?

  The heckler’s veto, that’s what.”

Once again Mr. Fleming delivers a laugh to keep the tears from flowing .

” Let’s face it: We’re never going to deal with the serious problems in our county. The economy is
still faltering, our debt seems insurmountable,gas prices are out of control and terrorists are
still trying to blow us up with their underwear.
But what issue is dominating the presidential race right now? Gay marriage. ”

There certainly is an attention deficit in this country . But also a courage deficit ….

” We can’t even leave it to the politicians to solve our problems, because they’re not any better.
When President Obama took office, he saw the joblessness and faltering economy and decided
he didn’t feel like dealing with that — instead, he started playing with his fun new health-care plan. ”

As Frank says , we won’t deal with the issues until they bite us on the ..s .

” Maybe we’ll just have to put Ritalin in the water to help us all focus. Because otherwise the only time our economy and the national debt will be interesting enough to hold our attention is when the country has collapsed. That will really grab everyone’s interest — you’ve seen how popular all those zombie-apocalypse shows and movies are. ”

Stock up on ammo and machetes its Zombietime .

NY Post :

“Back in 2008, hedge fund honchos flocked to support Barack Obama in his presidential bid, and Scaramucci was one of them. But during Obama’s term, Scaramucci and others in his circle have turned on Obama something fierce.

Two-thirds of hedge fund money went to Democrats in 2008; this year about the same percentage is going to Republicans. “
