For a good laugh, check the Left at Twitter / Search - Limbaugh

For a really good laugh until you cry, take a look at the rabid Left during a Rush Limbaugh broadcast. Here is a taste -
Twitter / Search - limbaugh:
Dreamer9177
Typical of Limbaugh//RT @ Limbaugh: Wisconsin Protesters Are "Long-Haired, Maggot-Infested (cont)
»
Jacquelyn Williams
Rush Limbaugh: Wisconsin Protesters Are "Long-Haired, Maggot-Infested Michael Moore Fans", (Sounds like a true member of the corrupt GOP)
The current ultimate humorist carping about Limbaugh is this guy:
DittoWatch
Limbaugh: Forget the union thugs. Next up is the welfare nation.
 With stuff like this:
DittoWatch
Limbaugh while complaining about when RW extremists put on terror watch-lists, accidentally says: "There weren't even any Tea Parties yet."
That was a commentary on the first hour of Limbaugh's 10 March 2011 show when Rush intentionally took a jab at the Obama administration announcing in 2009 that the "real" security threat to America was from Right-Wing "extremists" and it went on to describe anybody who was not some sort of Kool-Aide drinking Liberal as a "Right Wing".  Rush mentioned that Homeland Security was describing the Right as terrorists even before the Tea Party existed.  Now, some argue that the Tea Party began during Bush's TARP insanity, and I am in that camp, but still @DittoWatch seems to think that the Tea Party are a bunch of terrorists and Limbaugh 'accidentally' let it slip.

When you have time to blow, stop in on that Twitter search and have some fun.  On the same day, one could read Leftists calling the Wisconsin GOP a "mob", while union protesters in Wisconsin are rioting like a bunch of 3 year old children who want cake instead of cereal.  No, I did not write that backwards.  The people on that thread, the frothing, crying Limbaugh haters, really think that taking a vote and passing a law after ample debate, after the Governor and most of the legislators winning election on this issue, amounts to mob tactics.  Conversely, they are in full support of the capitol grounds and building being vandalized by a bunch of public employees who don't like the deal they were out voted on.
Union mob in the Senate
Union supporting thug dragged from the capitol.


I made mention on Twitter that not one single Democrat voted against what the union thugs were protesting against.  I will add that one Republican did, but the Democrats were in unison, hanging out in Rockford, Illinois for the past three weeks.  The only thing that prevented them from voting was them.

I did not bother to visit the Twitter feed to see a reaction to this threatening email.  Two guesses: ignored or waived away.

Subject: Atten: Death threat!!!! Bomb!!!!

Please put your things in order because you will be killed and your familes will also be killed due to your actions in the last 8 weeks. Please explain to them that this is because if we get rid of you and your families then it will save the rights of 300,000 people and also be able to close the deficit that you have created. I hope you have a good time in hell. Read below for more information on possible scenarios in which you will die.
WE want to make this perfectly clear. Because of your actions today and in the past couple of weeks I and the group of people that are working with me have decided that we’ve had enough. We feel that you and the people that support the dictator have to die. We have tried many other ways of dealing with your corruption but you have taken things too far and we will not stand for it any longer. So, this is how it’s going to happen: I as well as many others know where you and your family live, it’s a matter of public records. We have all planned to assult you by arriving at your house and putting a nice little bullet in your head. However, we decided that we wouldn’t leave it there. We also have decided that this may not be enough to send the message to you since you are so “high” on Koch and have decided that you are now going to single handedly make this a dictatorship instead of a demorcratic process. So we have also built several bombs that we have placed in various locations around the areas in which we know that you frequent. This includes, your house, your car, the state capitol, and well I won’t tell you all of them because that’s just no fun. Since we know that you are not smart enough to figure out why this is happening to you we have decided to make it perfectly clear to you. If you and your goonies feel that it’s necessary to strip the rights of 300,000 people and ruin their lives, making them unable to feed, clothe, and provide the necessities to their families and themselves then We Will “get rid of” (in which I mean kill) you. Please understand that this does not include the heroic Rep. Senator that risked everything to go aganist what you and your goonies wanted him to do. We feel that it’s worth our lives to do this, because we would be saving the lives of 300,000 people. Please make your peace with God as soon as possible and say goodbye to your loved ones we will not wait any longer. YOU WILL DIE!!!!

'Sharia-compliant' radio? (OneNewsNow.com)

Catherine Mann, aka Mrs. Fred
Following up on several earlier Fred Grandy stories:

'Sharia-compliant' radio? (OneNewsNow.com):
"James Lafferty, chairman of the Virginia Anti-Sharia Task Force, claims he heard from 'two very good sources' that the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) played a part in Grandy's leaving. He contends the station caved to browbeating from that pro-Muslim group.

Fred Grandy
James Lafferty (VAST)'It is America's first Sharia-compliant station -- and [the station's decision is] not being driven by advertising or anything else,' he says. 'It's CAIR pressuring the management of the station, who in turn turned around and tried to pressure Fred Grandy.'"

On Hoarding

Hoarding: a crutch word used by Marxists who refuse to acknowledge a free market exists without their dictatorial wishes.

I have been hearing lots of "hoarding" talk lately.  Actually, much longer than that.  I don't mean the acceptable, descriptive compulsive hoarding that actually describes a behavior that may or may not be bad.  No, I am talking about the "hoarding" usage flying around whenever the price of anything goes up.  Wikipedia has a perfectly fine description of economic hoarding:
In economics, hoarding is the practice of buying up and holding resources so that they can be sold to customers for profit.

Followed by a perfectly fine descriptions of possible causes:
Hoarding behavior may be a common response to fear, whether fear of imminent society-wide danger or simple fear of a shortage of some good. Civil unrest or natural disaster may lead people to collect foodstuffs, water, gasoline, and other essentials which they believe, rightly or wrongly, will soon be in short supply.

Economically speaking, hoarding occurs due to individuals obtaining and holding assets thought to be undervalued and build up reserves of it in hopes to profit or save money later. Examples include times when price controls were in effect as in the case of Germany after World War 2, communist countries, or after natural disasters when goods are in such short supply that consumers stockpile (this is sometimes compounded by anti-price gouging laws which prevent the supply and demand curves from functioning). In these cases the hoarding disappears after the price controls are removed.

 This is one of the rare cases where I will endorse the Wikipedia treatment of a topic.  Unfortunately, the common usage lately veers quite a distance from what is quoted above.  The clanging Leftist/Marxist banshees of the internet have defined "hoarding" through usage as "you are not selling at a price I like" (see above, the communist countries) and it is frequently used in conversations involving gold or silver.  Unshockingly, these caterwauls increase with the frequency of gold and silver investment advertisements on radio and television.

Here is a bit of free investment advice: if you hear commercials about a great investment, it is not a great investment.

Mind you, these people who use "hoarding" as a pejorative are probably the same people who would advocate your death if you tried to tell them what to sell a pepper and salt shaker set for in a yard sale, but they have no problem demanding that gold sell for $25 per ounce.  Yes, you read that right.

One of the popular scripts (even if they will not admit to, or know that they are using a script) is "gold (or another commodity) is at a high price due to hoarding." Followed by a few illogical leaps and concluding with: "It is just like the tulip bubble, they were trading so high one was worth a whole farm, then the bubble burst."

Interestingly enough, "hoarding" does not adequately explain the tulip bulb bubble.  That was a supply and demand "problem" where tulip bulbs became more popular than the suppliers could keep up with.  At the date of this writing, we have a quite different "problem" with refined oil products.  There is no supply shortage at all, in spite of the unrest in North Africa and the Arabian Peninsula.  Unlike the USA and parts north, those countries do not discourage oil production.  If the rest of the places on earth that have oil reserves actually encouraged oil production and refining, the price would be lower and more stable.  Additionally, oil is hard to "hoard" once it is removed from its natural container of rock.

What amazes me about every single person who tosses the "hoarding" accusation is that they are so passionate about the high price of something that they don't have a use for.  If you are in the electronics or jewelry industry, you do have uses for gold and silver.  The complainers are never manufacturers of products that use gold or silver, they are people who want to buy some cheap and wait until it is valuable, i.e., they want to engage in precisely the same behavior that they are carping about.

So, what are they really complaining about?  They are complaining about a perceived behavior that they do not like in others, but it is perfectly fine for them: buying and holding assets.  In other words, they are authoritarians and hypocrites.

The "solutions" for getting someone to sell their property "soon" are: offering a consideration that they will accept, stealing it or having the government steal it from them.  That is a pretty short list and covers all the bases.  The next time you hear someone complain about "hoarding" just ask them what they propose as a solution.

Additionally, if they attempt to use as evidence that a price of something (usually tulip bulbs) was high once and cheap now ask them if they really, truly believe that the highest price anything attained is supposed the be the only price until Sol becomes a Red Giant, or are fluctuating prices more the natural order of things?  Salt is no longer used as money either.  Any complaints about that?  Mayor Bloomberg, take down your hand.

Mrs. Fred Speaks Out About Her WMAL Dismissal

Will WMAL change its call sign to KPLO?
Another followup to this and this in the ongoing WMAL vs. the Grandy's story.

Catherine Mann, aka Mrs. Fred
Mrs. Fred | WMAL dismissal | The Daily Caller - Breaking News, Opinion, Research, and Entertainment:
"I’m not sure exactly what I said that they objected to, but if I had to guess, I’d guess it was how I concluded the show: “If I don’t return next Friday to continue this discussion, you’ll know that CAIR has successfully put pressure on WMAL — and the radical Muslims have won.”

Needless to say, my dismissal bothered me a tad. For a long time Fred and I have both believed the struggle against Islamic extremism is a secret war most Americans don’t even know we are fighting — and losing. We need more intelligence, not less.

Major Hasan
When management disagreed, Fred felt his microphone had also been muzzled and he resigned. That bothered me too. Now he’ll be around the house all day.

But you know what really bothered me? It was waking up not 24 hours after our broadcast careers abruptly ended to learn two American soldiers on their way to Afghanistan had been shot dead at the airport in Frankfurt, Germany, by some 21-year-old kid from Kosovo shouting “Allahu Akhbar” — the same thing Major Hassan shouted."
Italicization mine.

While I support the Grandy's in their efforts to get the truth out about Sharia, especially Sharia in America, I also support the rights of the microphone owners.  Property rights rule with me, so it should be no surprise that I find nothing "wrong" with what WMAL did.  They have a thriving business and the popularity of the content is pretty high on the list of items of importance in the calculus of their operations.  They are not exactly The Pacifica Network, The National Review or The Reason Foundation, they operate on a for-profit basis.

The one WMAL source of mine did mention the ratings and how the share of the show would drop when Mrs. Fred began doing the Sharia segments.  Everything else she did was popular, but the Sharia segments lost listeners.  Mrs. Mann-Graham does not mention that directly, but she indicates it in the second paragraph of her editorial.  This is a key element that cannot be dismissed.  Sure, some shows do not need a broad audience to be profitable.  The Imus in the Morning show is probably the most visible example of a drive-time talk radio show that has a very small listenership, however the listeners he has are courted by advertisers who spend great amounts of money for commercial time, segment sponsorships and mentions on the show.  On the other extreme, Rush Limbaugh has had the biggest audience in radio for years and his loyal sponsors pay great amounts of money to reach many people.

All that said, WMAL lost me as a listener when Fred Grandy resigned.  From the online circles I haunt, it sounds like they lost quite a few more than just me.  Granted, the ones they retained may outnumber those of us who moved down the dial to 570 AM WTNT or to internet streaming from other markets and I trust that they were well aware of this when they decided to remove a topic of such importance from The Grandy Group offerings.

Thug Festival in Hyatt Regency Crystal City - Video

For those as pathetically un-hip as I, the long name for the DMV Awards is "DC, Maryland and Virginia Entertainment and Music Awards" and is not the easiest thing to find.  They decided to have their festival of awards and fisticuffs in the Hyatt Regency Crystal City at Regan National Airport, in the same location Anime USA had their convention last year, just a few blocks from my residence.  The Anime kids seem to have a different view of how to have a good time.

View Larger Map
Although it was only a couple of blocks away, I had no idea anything was happening or I would have my own video here instead of ALLDMVHiphop.Com video below.  I think I was watching a hockey game at Bailey's.

Melee Breaks Out at Hip Hop Award Show in Crystal City | ARLnow.com:
"A huge brawl broke out at a local hip hop award show in Crystal City Saturday night, sending several people to the hospital.

Multiple fights broke out at the 2011 DMV Music Awards at the Hyatt Regency Crystal City, authorities said. Reports of more than 20 people fighting amid an audience of more than 1,500 prompted Arlington County police to take the rare step of sending every available unit to the scene.

“We’re going to need everyone,” an officer radioed to the dispatch center just after 9:30 p.m. “Apparently the whole place is out of control.”


TBD has additional coverage:
"The local music awards ceremony started peacefully, but fighting began just before 10 p.m., during a program intermission. Arlington County Police spokesperson Det. Crystal Nosal said that, from her understanding of the situation, there were “approximately 1500 people in attendance and multiple fights broke out, and there were multiple 911 calls.”

Nosal said that due to the size of the crowd, “we pretty much sent every officer we had.”

Five people were injured, and transported to 3 area hospitals following the altercations, Nosal said. One of the five was a hotel employee who, according to one witness, attempted to break up a fight. Jean-Marc Dizard, general manager for the Hyatt Regency Crystal City, confirmed that one hotel employee, a buffet worker, was injured. The employee was taken out of the hotel on a stretcher with what appeared to be a head injury."
