The Left Wing Fearmongers Owe An Apology

In case you’re wondering, this call is due to the announcement that census worker Bill Sparkman killed himself for the insurance money (H/T: R.S. McCain) - which means that he was not murdered by conservative monsters from the id, or murdered for ideological purposes - or, in fact, was murdered at all.  I’m sure that this would be an embarrassment for everyone on the Other Side who flogged this particular narrative, except this would imply that they cared about Sparkman in the first place.  Which they didn’t, so expect a grudging bare minimum, at best.

PS: For the record: when you try to set up your suicide to make it look like you’ve been murdered by your ideological opponents, you have officially abrogated any obligation for me to be upset at your plight.


  1. Guy must've had a pretty sad and miserable life.

    But still.

    Massive fail by Sparkman.

  2. The left went crazy over this. Not one word out of them. I know for a fact that Bruce owes us all a big fat sorry.

  3. wow, the left went crazy? Don't know a single lib who spent any time on it. I didn't myself

  4. Google it stupid. The left went stupid on that story. They used it to prove how dangerous the right wing is and the "Teabaggers". The left are the ones that do the crazy things.

  5. Joey - Good for you, I truly believe that you didn't. However, check Democratic Underground, or as Anon said, google it. The libs were accusing everyone from Beck to O'Reilly. EVEN NOW they are saying that there is still something fishy, that the police were bought off, etc etc. Disgusting people those liberals are.

  6. Well to real people (including JoeC in this instance),no one (at least me) thought it but someone getting too,way too close to a marijuana crop. I did not suspect suicide? If you have ever been south,you would understand.

    But for the left to jump is not unusal,Columbine-liberal teen killers/liberal parents (must be conservatives),VA Tech shooter-liberal immigrant (clinical-defined) nut-case,anti-abortion dude right here in MI,remember the little girl murdered in Coloardo? Yep,MI connection. Liberal-not solved. A liberal idiot even said he knew of it, why? to get out of a marxist PRISON? If marxism is so great,why run? If so miserable,why want it here?

    Chris,there will be no apology forthcoming,only excuses and laws AGAINST law-abiding Americans

  7. That was a weird, sad case. At the time it reminded me of the Manson family writing "Pig" on the wall in blood. It just didn't seem real, you know? And now it turns out he was must a sad, desperate man. :(

  8. ugh, sorry for the typos. Shows that I should drink coffee before posting. lol

  9. John, i don't go to DU, its a fringe board just like the crazies at FR.

  10. I'm such a bad speller I didn't even know there were any typos.

  11. It is a shame when anyone is so depressed that they kill themselves. We are seeing more of that lately. He tryed to kill himself for insurance money and pin the blame on conservatives. He is not much better then the people that kill others before they kill themselves.

  12. God bless you all this Thanksgiving.

  13. What the fuck are you talking about? What kind of acid are you on Happy? Rainman made more sense then your rants. Maybe you should start wearing a helmet when you blog. Happy Thanksgiving all.

  14. anyone else wondering what that was about? who is happy?

  15. Dear Fellow Conservative,

    What if you discovered that the vet who takes care of your dog was Michael Vick? Would you think twice about bringing Fido back for his annual shots?

    Or what if you discovered that your auto mechanic was a member of Greenpeace? Would you think twice about having him work on your SUV?

    Of course you would. Just as, I hope, you would think twice about trusting your retirement savings to someone who secretly despised -- or simply didn't understand -- the free-market capitalist system that makes profits and prosperity possible.

    Yet that, believe it or not, is exactly the position millions of Americans are finding themselves in today -- as they discover that Wall Street, far from being a stronghold of "rich Republicans" and "laissez-faire capitalists," is actually dominated by liberal Democrats who support, overwhelmingly, the prosperity-wrecking big-government policies of Barack Obama and his merry band of neo-socialists.

    Think I'm exaggerating? Consider the following facts and statistics:

    According to an analysis of Federal Election Commission records by the Center for Responsive Politics, the 2008 Obama campaign received $12.6 million from Wall Street "Securities and Investment" firms versus McCain's $7.9 million

    The top three corporate employers of donors to Barack Obama, Joe Biden, and Rahm Emanuel were Goldman Sachs, Citigroup, and JPMorgan

    Employees of Lehman Brothers alone gave Obama $370,000, compared to about $117,000 to McCain. (No wonder Bush let them go under.)

    Since 1998, the financial sector has given a total of $37.6 million to Obama, compared to $32.1 million to McCain. But Obama ran for his first national office only in 2004. So McCain got less from the financial industry in a decade that included two runs for president than Obama did in four years.

    What's this all about? Well, you see, the financial industry takes care of Democrats -- and as we've seen in recent months, the Democrats take care of the financial industry. After all, it's a lot easier to get rich by taking money from taxpayers than to do it by choosing consistently profitable investments for your clients.

    Fortunately, there is someone who can help you invest your money who is as financially savvy and devoted to the free-market system as today's Wall Streeters are financially illiterate and devoted to shaking down taxpayers.

    His name is Mark Skousen, Ph.D., editor of the investment newsletter Forecasts & Strategies -- and he just might be the smartest financial advisor working today.

    Skousen, after all, launched his career by predicting, during the 1980-82 recession -- and to the scornful laughter of nearly all the other so-called experts -- that "Reaganomics will work."

    Boy, did he get that right. And boy, has he gotten it right ever since:

    Just this past March he called the exact bottom of the market, telling his subscribers that "stocks are a screaming buy." In the four weeks following, the Dow soared a remarkable 24.5%.

    In 2006 -- more than two years before the financial meltdown -- he warned subscribers that "we clearly are headed for fiscal disaster," and showed them how to protect themselves.

    Just weeks before the NASDAQ collapsed in 2000, he warned his subscribers that tech stocks were dangerously overvalued.

    He told his subscribers in 1995 that the NASDAQ would double, and then double again -- which is exactly what it did.

    He called the Gulf War of 1990 "a turning point for U.S. stocks" -- and the Dow subsequently began a bull market that didn't end for nearly ten years.

    And he issued a "sell everything" recommendation to his Forecasts & Strategies subscribers just 41 days before the stock market crash of 1987 -- then told them to get fully invested again several weeks later, just in time for the recovery.

  16. Herb great posts. Thank you for your input.

  17. The polls keep coming in and it doesn't look good for the Democrats and Obama. Independents are turning on Obama fast and in great numbers. Only 85% of Democrats think Obama is doing a good job. It really does suck to be a Democrat. Maybe when the conservatives take over all branchs of govt whe could have forced baptisms and mandatory prayers in school and in prisons. lol That is whaty these idiot think we will do.

  18. Has anyone heard about the Hamas refugees coming to America and most likely the Detroit area? I heard we are paying for it and covering their house and living expences.Hamas. The libs love Hamas. And the libs hate the Jews and Christians.

  19. It's been weeks since eyewitnesses reported that Maj. Nidal Hasan shouted "Allahu akbar" before spraying Fort Hood with gunfire, killing 13 people.

    Since then we also learned that Hasan gave a medical lecture on beheading infidels and pouring burning oil down their throats (unfortunately not covered under the Senate health care bill). Some wondered if perhaps a pattern was beginning to emerge but were promptly dismissed as racist cranks.

    We also found out Hasan had business cards printed up with the jihadist abbreviation "SOA" for "Soldier of Allah." Was that enough to conclude that the shooting was an act of terrorism -- or does somebody around here need to take another cultural sensitivity class?

    And we know that Hasan had contacted several jihadist Web sites and that he had been exchanging e-mails with a radical Islamic cleric in Yemen. The FBI learned that last December, but the rest of us only found out about it a week ago.

    Is it still too soon to come to the conclusion that the Fort Hood shooting was an act of terrorism?

    Alas, it is still too early to tell at MSNBC. For Keith Olbermann, Rachel Maddow and Chris Matthews -- at least two of whom would be severely punished under Shariah law -- the shooting of George Tiller was an act of terrorism, no question. The death of a census taker in Kentucky was also an act of terrorism. (We learned this week that it was a suicide/insurance scam.) But as to Maj. Hasan, the jury is still out -- and will be out for many, many years.

    Actually, according to Keith, the Fort Hood massacre may not have happened at all. He has argued persuasively, on several occasions, that it is impossible, literally impossible, to commit mass murder at a military base.

    Like many on the left, Keith loved to sneer at all terrorist plots allegedly foiled by the Bush administration. He was particularly contemptuous of the purported plan of six aspiring jihadists to sneak onto the Fort Dix army base and kill as many soldiers as they could.

    On Nov. 11, 2008, he explained why the Fort Dix terrorist plot was a laughable fraud, saying the "morons" apparently didn't realize that "all the soldiers have these big guns."

    Keith, the moron, apparently doesn't realize that on military bases on U.S. soil only MPs have guns. (Special authorization is required for soldiers to carry a firearm, which can be granted only in the case of a specific and credible threat against military personnel in that region. Thank you, Bill Clinton.)

    Again on May 21 this year, Olbermann ridiculed the Fort Dix terror plot, pointing out that the six alleged terrorists seemed to be "forgetting that every man there was armed." (Curiously, even though ROTC was offered at the ag school Keith attended, he appears not to have investigated it.)

    But it was not until Aug. 21 of this year that Olbermann hit upon the true reason for the Bush administration's hyping of this implausible terror plot. According to Keith -- and I'm not kidding -- it was to distract from Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius' announcement that her state had been unable to respond adequately to a tornado because Bush had diverted the National Guard to his crazy war in Iraq!

    The Bush administration, you see, had revealed the arrest of the Fort Dix conspirators the day after Sebelius' world-reverberating bombshell about Kansas' decimated National Guard! Eureka!

    This little theory of Keith's, adorable though it is, has problems apart from his insistence that it would be impossible to kill army personnel on "a closed compound full of trained soldiers with weapons." The other problem is Gov. Sebelius was full of crap.

    First, Sebelius wasn't in much of a position to know how well Kansas responded to the tornado, inasmuch as she had been partying at New Orleans' Jazzfest the day after the tornado hit -- while Kansas Sen. Pat Roberts and both local congressmen were on the scene, helping the rescue efforts.

  20. Second, the manager of the actual rescue team soon contradicted Sebelius, saying: "We have all the staff that we need and can manage at this time. If we had more people right now, it would just start being a cluster."

    The Kansas National Guard had 352 Humvees, 72 dump trucks and more than 320 other trucks, which would seem to be sufficient for the town hit by the tornado, Greensburg, Kan., population 1,574. That's almost one National Guard truck for every two people. (This is the same tornado that Obama claimed had killed 10,000 people. He was off by 9,988.)

    Third, it turned out that Gov. Sebelius had rejected offers of additional help from neighboring National Guard units.

    Consequently, the day after her dramatic cri de coeur for more National Guard resources, Sebelius' office completely reversed course, telling The Associated Press that the rescue efforts were going "just fine."

    What the governor had meant, her office explained, was that Kansas' National Guard might be stretched thin if, hypothetically, another natural disaster were to strike immediately after the tornado.

    Keith, unfortunately, was unaware of Sebelius' humiliating about-face, as it was not carried on the dirt ball org the Daily Kos. Bruce didn't you write for them?

    Last December, five of the Fort Dix plotters were found guilty by a federal jury of conspiring to kill American soldiers. The sixth had already pleaded guilty.

    Still, compare the macho posturing of the Bush administration over thwarting the Fort Dix terror plot to the masterful handling of domestic terrorist plots since the angel Obama has taken the helm. Why, the Obama administration managed to capture and arrest Maj. Hasan without violating a single American's civil liberties!

  21. What site did we get that off of? Could you source it?


Please keep it clean and nice. Thank you for taking the time to post you thought. It means a lot to me that you do this.
