The Great Palin Turkey Slaughter

November 23rd, 2008 | 2 Comments | Posted in Libtards, Loving the GOP

I’ve gotten used to the fact that anytime the media says the word ‘Palin’ it will be done with a mix of disgust, horror, fear and shock, but the most recent example of ‘Palin Derangement Syndrome’ was good enough to get a nice chuckle out of me.

Sarah Palin went and did the traditional turkey pardon at a turkey ranch in Alaska.  No big deal right?  Oh no, because when she was doing an interview after the pardon you could see very clearly in the background a man using a machine to process the turkeys by cutting their heads off.  The Huffington Post (purveyor of all things liberal loony) portrays it this way:

After the pardon Palin proceeded to do an interview with a local TV station while the turkeys were being SLAUGHTERED in the background!! Seemingly oblivious to the gruesomeness going on over her shoulder, she carries on talking for over three minutes.

I’m going to guess that no one at the HP eats meat at all then, or watches Dirty Jobs because that show has shown things a heck of a lot more disturbing than turkeys being inserted head first into a decapitation machine.

Here’s the facts of life, for us to EAT the animal it has to be dead first.  And since most of us don’t really want to wait until old age takes the animal we wish to consume, that means we have to kill it.  Sarah understands this and she, in fact, does kill her own food which is probably why the “slaughter” didn’t bother her at all.  She’s not oblivious to it, she just understands the facts of life a lot better than the so-called journalists at the HP.

The other thing is this: If it was so gruesome and disturbing why didn’t the camera man set up the shot so that wasn’t included?  The way it is framed leads me to think that the camera man set it up this way intentionally.  His motives for this I don’t know, but having done camera work, still and motion picture, I would find it very difficult to believe that he wasn’t aware of everything that was in the cameras view.

On Michelle Malkin’s site she links to the NY Times whose editors are apparently crying in their lattes about the ‘executions’ of the birds.  Well guys, if it would make you feel better we could execute a few terrorists instead.  Also, Conservative Pilgrim nails it with his piece ‘Execute Babies: Absolutely. Execute Turkeys: You’ve Got to be Kidding Me!?!!’ What it comes down to is that the left is so scared of Sarah that even though the election is over and they are having some buyer’s remorse, they are STILL scared that in four years she will come back and destroy them.

Ya know what?  They’re right too, she will.

Tim Blair Just freaking ROCKS

Now isn’t this special

We have all had moments, some of us more than others, where we have decided that our elected representative it a complete tool who never once took an American history or civics course in their life.  Well, now there is evidence that while they might have been in the class they didn’t bother to learn much while they were there.

The Intercollegiate Studies Institute recently did a study and found that not only our the politicians ignorant of what a free market system actually is, they also found that 71% of Americans are ignorant on some of the basic principles and history of our government and country.

– 30 percent of elected officials do not know that “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness” are the inalienable rights referred to in the Declaration of Independence; and 20 percent falsely believe that the Electoral College “was established to supervise the first presidential debates”
– Almost 40 percent of all respondents falsely believe the president has the power to declare war
– 40 percent of those with a bachelor’s degree do not know business profit equals revenue minus expenses
– Only 54 percent with a bachelor’s degree correctly define free enterprise as a system in which individuals create, exchange and control goods and resources
– 20.7 percent of Americans falsely believe that the Federal Reserve can increase or decrease government spending

This isn’t rocket science, hell, it isn’t even science, it’s basic government knowledge and history and yet seven out of every ten people FAILED this quiz.

Think about that for a moment.

These are people from all walks of life, all educational levels, both liberals and conservatives.  Not one area of our society was immune from this ignorance of how our founding fathers wanted our country to operate.  The vast majority of people living in the United States of America have no idea how it was supposed to run.

Combine this with a population that is easily manipulated by the press into voting for a candidate that they know little to nothing about and we come to the current state of affairs that we have in the United States now.

Our schools are more concerned with teaching to a test rather than teaching facts and critical thinking.  This attitude is backed up by a government that determines school funding by how many kids pass the test, which means that teachers who want to keep their jobs will make sure every child is drilled over an over to make sure they are ready for test day.

If I was a cynical person I would almost think that our government wanted our kids to be badly educated, ignorant and easily lead to the slaughterhouse.  I mean, if that were the case they would be able to do all kinds of things that would have our founding fathers turning over in their graves, stuff like $700 Billion dollar bailouts and trying to pass weapons bans that go against the second amendment.

Naw, that would never happen….

Oh, and my score was 93.94%.  Yea, I am that good.
