Friday Follies: Baking gay cake, PolitiFact’s Lie, Obama’s selfie, and ESPN’s Godless act

December 13, 2013

A wild week this one indeed.  We’ve got gays demanding their cake, $6.8 million dollar Obamacare enrollees, Politi-Fact’s flip-fop of the decade, Obama’s selfie and ESPN’s pathetic Godless act.

Once again we find “Tis that time once again when we take stock of the inane and foolish put upon us by those forced to navigate life with an amount of gray matter just slightly larger than that found in your average toad.”

#5 The “Cover Oregon” organization responsible for getting all those Oregonians desperate for the wonders of Obamacare signed up post haste.  With over $300 million in federal grant money they built their exchange and produced an Obama administration award winning propaganda video to encourage sign ups.  They were held up as the epitome of success of state exchanges.  One accolade after another came pouring in.

And then something else came in: The Health Insurance Enrollment Report.  The report that tells the American public just how successful their efforts when judged by the actual number of sign ups.

That number?  A stratospheric, absolutely amazing, mind numbing:  44.  In the entire history of this nation we’ve only had 44 Presidents and yet in one of the most “progressive” states in the union, the best that $300 million taxpayer smackeroos can buy is 44 measly sign ups.

That comes out to roughly $6.8 MILLION per enrollee.  Now I’m no rocket scientist but we’d all be better  off if they’d just spend the money on free birth control for the entire state and keep these idiots from further polluting the gene pool.  You may not be able to get liberals to accept logic and facts but even they eventually die off.  The trick is to just keep them from breeding.


#4  Colorado administrative judge Robert Spencer takes the four spot on this week’s countdown for his ridiculous ruling that Jack Phillips, owner of Masterpiece Cakeshop and a devout Christian, violated the “rights” of gay couple Charlie Craig and David Mullins when Phillips refused to bake them a wedding cake celebrating what he believes is a violation of the Christian faith.

Ken Klukowski over at writes that even though the judge “readily acknowledged the authenticity of Phillips’s faith, including in his findings of fact”, Spencer still held that it all “fails to take into account the cost to society and the hurt caused to persons who are denied service simply because of who they are.”

“Cost to society” judge?  What about the cost to society when a less than 2% minority (The Williams Institute at UCLA School of Law, April 2011 study) forces its belief system and its lifestyle choices upon the rest of that society?  What about the cost to society when said minority with the aide of its allies in the media and pop culture present said 2% as a much larger and more prevalent segment than it actually is?  What about the cost to society when said “pushing” of said narrow minority view filters all the way down to the kindergarten level indoctrinating 5 and 6 year olds that shouldn’t even be hearing of such for at least another ten years?

That two individuals can force another individual to accept their views and force him into engaging in private commerce or face the possibility of jail time shows just how far we’ve sunk as a nation and just how intolerant the political left truly is.

And for any lefties just salivating about now to use the “homophobe” tag, get a napkin and clean up your drool.  This isn’t about equal rights for gays, this is about whether the First Amendment is anything more than just a few words on paper.

Jack Phillips was not denying the happy couple their right to engage in their lifestyle, he was only asking that he be free to live his.  Those “No shirt, no shoes, no service” and “We reserve the right to refuse service” signs don’t count if you’re a politically correct protected class hell bent on mandating your lifestyle upon the lives of others.

Mr. Phillips has rights too.  And one of those rights should be the freedom to bake or not to bake a cake for whomever he damn well pleases.


#3  The self-labeled “truth squad” organization known as “Politi-fact” for the rank hypocrisy for giving Obama’s “If you like your health plan you can keep your health plan” the “Lie of the Year” award.  But as Mediatrackers points out, the story isn’t so much about Obama lying as it is about the decision itself being the Flip-Flop of the year.

Back in 2008 when Obama had yet to secure his throne, and first uttered his famous lie, Politi-Fact at that time stated:

“Obama is accurately describing his health care plan here. He advocates a program that seeks to build on the current system, rather than dismantling it and starting over.”

But now that the number of Americans LOSING their health plans dwarfs those getting new ones under Obama’s utopian state mandated system Politi-Fact is trying to get back on the right side of history.

What’s the saying:  A day late and a dollar short?


#2  Did you really think there could be a week when Dear Leader didn’t make the list?  And yes, it’s for him and British Prime Minister David Cameron sandwiching the rather easy on the eyes, leggier than average Danish Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt for a friendly little “selfie” at Nelson Mandela’s memorial service.

Supporters of the tantalizing three defend them by pointing out that the service was more a “celebration of life” than a somber reflection on death.

I don’t really care what it was, I expect the President of the United States to act like a President of the United States.  But then again, I also expect the President of the United States to tell the truth and that ain’t working out so well either.


#1 ESPN, the Disney company owned sports network that denied the St. Louis based Cardinal Glennon Children’s Foundation advertisement because it mentioned “Jesus” in the ad but then had no problem running a pro Obamacare ad.

Says a lot about the company doesn’t it?  Happy to promote Obama’s propaganda, but refuses to air an ad that dares mention the very reason for the season?

Reminds us once again:  Why do they call it “common” sense when it’s so friggin rare?

UPDATE:  Reports are coming in that the backlash to ESPN was so strong the network has now agreed to run the original ad as submitted on Saturday.

As always, thanks for reading, have a great weekend and I’ll see ya round the corner.
