August was kicked off my Chik-Fil-A Appreciation day. Long lines did not deter people and some fun was poked at liberals in the process. Of course, in true liberal fashion there was a counter-protest which failed on an epic level and they took their frustration out on innocent people. Chik-Fil-A did a huge business that day, much to the chagrin of Adam Smith — more widely known as the Chik-Fil-A drive thru abuser. His apology was unimpressive and patronizing. While Chik-Fil-A stood up to Leftist bullying, August national caved. The Left was pretty frustrated so then came the assault on the Boy Scouts.
The phenomenon of fake hate crimes against homosexuals added one about an assault to a lesbian and another to the list. When someone finally did commit a violent crime, it was in the name of LGBT and not against it, which the media promptly blew off – anyone heard of Floyd Corkins? Bonus: Corkins had 15 Chik-Fil-A sandwiches on him to put on the bodies.
The RNC held it’s convention in Florida. Code Pink came dressed for disgust. Occupy had a welcoming committee. Protesters showed up the last night of the convention. Despite Hurricane Isaac, the show went on. My coverage: RNC 2012 – Night One, The Friday Focus, RNC – Night Two
Obama sued Ohio over voting laws that allowed military personnel 3 extra days. Meanwhile, Obama’s campaign kept having their attacks on Romney boomerang. Romney chose Paul Ryan to be his running mate. Romney made a wise choice. The Media did their best to make sure no one heard what they had to say. Harry Reid piled on in revolting fashion.
Violence continued across the nation. Wade Michael Page shot up a Sikh Temple, taking 7 lives and was investigated as domestic terrorism. In Chicago, the death toll surpassed 275 in the beginning of the month and near the end of it, I could barely believe the bloodshed. In NYC, a gunman was taken down in front of the Empire state building. Jared Lee Loughner pled guilty. James Holmes was tagged as an Obama donor.
Nevada showed us all how many jobs $1.3 billion in green energy subsidies created. Meanwhile, Obama offered $2 billion in green loans…. to Africa. He also sent a billion to Hamas.Our annual deficit was over a trillion for the third year in a row. Obama’s GM Victory cost taxpayers a $25 billion loss but pals of Obama who “lost” billions went free. Taxamageddon fears began and Obamacare looked poised to unionize 21 million healthcare workers by the time it was fully implemented.
Regulatory Czar, Cass Sunstein, resigned.
Our government became very cozy with the Muslim brotherhood both at abroad and at home. DHS launched it’s new amnesty program while refugees from Iraq mainly wreaked havoc and raped people. Plots of jihad on our soil were ignored by the media.
Abroad, Obama authorized support for
Al Qaeda rebels in Syria. In Mexico, the move to legalize drugs began. After 83,000 murders, Mexico decided they had enough of the decapitations and murder, but not before Americans were wounded. Islam continued to be the religion of peace and tolerance in Pakistan. More Green on Blue attacks in Afghanistan. Jihad came to Russia while some of Pussy Riot escaped arrest. In Bolivia, 2 tons of Uranium was seized.
