Tea Party (Palin)....Et al....WINNERS!
Dede Scoza (whatsits) has dropped out......NY 23rd......Now it is Hoffman (CONSERVATIVE) vs Owens (DEM) in a GOP district.....NEWT came slogging for the GOP RINO candidate....but lost his way. Now Newt magically sees the wonderful of Hoffman....
Beware GOP of the Tea Party folks....they could replace you in a single election! Seriously!
Government Fiction = Stimulus Success!
Caroline Baum: "When the government distributes lucre or loot, people spend it. If your interest is national income accounting, spending other people’s money is great. Spending is a back-door way for government statisticians to measure what matters, which is the real output of goods and services.
But the government has no money of its own to spend; only what it borrows or confiscates from us via taxation. Oops.
“Government job creation is an oxymoron,” said Bill Dunkelberg, chief economist at the National Federation of Independent Business. It is only by depriving the private sector of funds that government can hire or subsidize hiring.
That’s why “jobs created or saved” is such pure fiction."
Writing at Bloomberg.com, Ms. Baum Has more here!
The nice thing is a media suddenly beginning to give the Obama WH much less than carte blanche....
Twenty Years of Newspaper (Lack of) Circulation!
This pretty much sez it all....
If you want the whole story Read it here!
Nothing to see here....just the death of an industry.
Clueless in DEMland!
Healthcare is on-the-line & DEMs fail to produce Flu vaccine! Glenn Reynolds is all over the topic.
The government has never run a program well. Usually they are run into the ground.
Oh, and now the figures are out.....each vehicle involved in the Cash for Clunkers program cost we taxpayers $24,000......In effect we could have just bought the cars and given them out for the same cost. Yeah, I want my healthcare run by this government....NOT!
The Tip of The Conservative Iceberg?
Allahpundit at Hot Air: “Now the establishment Republicans are beginning to panic. Establishment Republicans think that principled conservatives’ taking a stand in this contest will weaken conservatism and the Republican party. The Wall Street Journal recently suggested that ‘Tea-Party Activists Complicate Republican Comeback Strategy.’
“As William Kristol has said, the truth is exactly the opposite. It is the ‘GOP establishment’ that stands in the way of a conservative comeback.
“Our goal should not be a Republican majority. It should be a conservative majority. If the Republican party will not be conservative, then we are going to run against them … and we’re going to win.”FULL STORY HERE!
The idiocy of the Old-Line GOP is every bit as bad as the old-line (and current) DEMs. The lion is awake and the GOP either joins in or loses out. Palin-Hoffman-Thompson and other conservatives are already on-board. What will the rest of the Grand Old Party do>
States Opt Out of HealthCare????
Government by subterfuge!
Northwest Airlines Flight 188....Lost in (Hyper)Space!
The rumors are rampant. 1st the report from the Pilot(s) was....We were in a heated discussion!
Next rumor was the use of disallowed laptops by the pilot & co-pilot to discuss and dissect the new operation of their combined airlines.
The added, yet unconfirmed rumor, was there was a bit of hanky-panky in the cockpit involving one of the air crew who was "visiting" the pilots.
The flight recorder is no help. The pilots are no help...What did the rest of the crew, the ones who were not in the cockpit think and do? I guess this will all come out.
The facts are....the crew, under whatever guise, was completely out-of-touch with reality as pilots of an airliner carrying a lot of human souls. I care not if they were arguing, computing, or engaged in other activities more physical...I NEVER want to fly with them...nor should I have to!
Please Mr. President...Have Your Minions Attack Me!
I have been watching, and learning.....
You and the WH groupies attacked FOX News....their numbers are up 8%
You are attacking the US Chamber of Commerce....their donations are $10 MILLION ahead of last year.
I could use the help if you have room for just one more "enemy!"
HELLO GOP? - Are You Awake Yet????
I sincerely doubt it.
The story has been out there.....DEM & GOP Candidates running in NY 23rd district. Then, knowing the GOP candidate was actually a RINO....if not a full-fledged Liberal, along came a guy named Hoffman....a REAL Conservative. The GOP countered by bringing in some top-shelf old-line GOPers....They spouted words in favor of the RINO.New polls show Hoffman has shot into the lead with the RINO in 3rd!
Could you get a clue GOP? The conservatives endorsing Hoffman included Sarah Palin!
Interesting stuff which will produce some Washington Two-Step from the GOP...if the lead holds.
Bush Tied To Balloon Boy!
So pathetic it makes one laugh.....Bush tied to Balloon Boy story.
I regret I am in my 60s...I won't get to see the day the BDS idiots halt making everything Bush's fault, or related to Bush.
Better Get A BIG Bus for 2010!!!!
A High profile DEM is losing his campaign for Governor...Under The Obamabus you go!
& PrezBO didn't even wait til the election. I have a feeling he must have a giant bus on order for the Congressional elections of 2010. It may have to accommodate 30 to 50 so a standard bus is not gonna cover all the losing DEMs.
This guy is the worst amateur to occupy the Oval Office in my lifetime. He makes Tricky Dickie Nixon and Jimmah Carter look like accomplished administrators.
"Is That All There Is?".......
The soft voice of Miss Peggy Lee rings in my head with the words....We're told the stimulus is a done deal...there is NO MORE!
I feel cheated. The magnificent save-it-all plan by PrezBO is not going to help going forward? The unemployment rate is 9.8% and rising.
Despite the claims of "jobs saved"...something for which the PrezBO has no actual accountability...we know the thing failed miserably; but, I did hold hope for the future of the plan. Now that is gone.
The One has failed miserably, and no one is telling the Emporer he has no clothes.
Gotta Control; The Media!...Obama Rules!
We will enjoy the facts.....
We Love The Media....Except for Those Opposed To Us!
LOVE HIM OR BE DENIED!
Obamassiah Is TRYING REALLY, REALLY Hard to control the media.....Don't ya LOVE IT!!!!I DO!WOW!!!!
The question is how far will the MSM go to protect the Obama!
So much for the much-vaunted Democrat openness & honesty.
For thee not me is the global Democrat theme. They huff and puff, and Pelosi goes off in a snit...but when anything seems to challenge one of their members the rules change. Avoidance seems to be their new tool. After all the Charlie Rangel "investigation" is now 18 months in and not an utterance from the investigating committee.
Amazing stuff....all available for expose in the 2010 elections. Wanna bet they sacrifice one of their own tween now and Nov of next year as the sacrificial lamb of proving they are open and honest.
Neal Boortz' WebWench has FUN WITH NUMBERS!
Lovely.....we're headed to unseen heights of debt to economy.....and Obama has done all he can to paint rosy pictures of it all....as have all his Democrat friends.
To The Beach - To The Beach!
Duchess & I depart today for two marvelous weeks on "Mad Beach" (known to outsiders as Madeira Beach, FL.).
I'll be blogging and also working on my dollhouse "Princess House"
which I am building for 6 year old Princess for Christmas.....hope to get it done...
The beach is relaxing, and in addition to building rooms of furniture for said dollhouse there will be lots of Tito's Vodka....Euchre Games....Duke's Almost-Famous BBQ Ribs....Glenlivet....Mount Gay Rum....Spa wine-drinking....Restaurants (Crabby Bill's Stone Crabs), Thai-Am, II (Choice of Sushi/Combos/etc)....and lots of great wines...
Yeah that should do it!
Dive! - Dive!; The Obama Crash Is On! - Part Er....Whatever!
A new Harris Poll has PrezBO with a -10% approval rating....
Nobel's "Dynamite" award just did not get it for The One.
I am sure there is great mystification within the deepest confines of the WH & Obama's trusted inner-circle of socialist/marxist advisors.
Stimulus Working! - 1 New Job Costs 1.5 MILLION Dollars!
Holy Job Creation Batman!TheBlogProf has the numbers from Michigan & elsewhere!
Now I feel so much better.
I know, let's turn Health Care over to this stupendous team of village idiots! Yeah, that's the ticket!
Citizens Not Govt. Responsible for Economic Woes Cure!
NAW!!!! Can't be. Govt. is all things to all people all the time....Just ask PrezBO!
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce DISAGREES!!!!
(Note I could be considered biased here as I was a C of C Manager in Joliet/Will County, IL some 40 years ago!)
Actually I have disagreed with the CofC a lot in the last few years, but they are completely correct this time. Govt. does not, has not, will never be a job creation center....well, except for growing their agencies ever-larger and adding more and more govt. jobs.
ObamaCare....Baucus Style.....SMOKE & MIRRORS!
Did you ever have the feeling the speaker on a particular subject was just blowing out words with no actual responsibility for their truthfulness? YEPPERS! Obamy is the one!
ObamaCare is SMOKE & MIRRORS!
How much of this will you hear/read? How much of that will be in the MSM (Antique Media)? Maybe 5%????
Blogs do a major service to alert/inform/educate the public....A service abandoned by a completely biased media. The MSM is now, absolutely, a a theme/belief driven media... Nothing like the professionals of old.
But, But, But....Where's My Global Warming?
Two named hurricanes; 8 tropical storms.....It's mid-October!
Upper level wind shear, Atlantic Tropical waters TWO DEGREES COOLER....This whole (lack of) global warming thingee is working real well for me.
11 years of cooler weather....the list goes on and on.
I do notice the "climate change" thing is now the only phrase out there, and even AlGore is refusing to take questions again. He had not allowed any questions for years. He opens them one time and somebody actually....well, you know, ASKED A QUESTION! The guys microphone was quickly silenced and AlGore ignored the question. All the guy did was ask him to explain those multiple pesky lies contained in his movie.
Yikes; YOU asked The AlGore to actually discuss/answer/explain.....How dumb is that. If GW proves false his massive investments in alternative energy will fail. Cannot have that from Mr. I Burn Lotza Watts!
OUCH! - That's Gotta Hurt (Obama!)
After siding with the likes of Chavez, Castro & other luminaries of Socialist discontent saying that Zelaga was illegally removed, PrezBO is probably really bummed out that THE U.N. Reports the removal was LEGAL!
Boy, just when you win a Nobel Peace Prize somebody you think you trust knifes your support for overthrowing the rule of law....oh, wait you did that by giving the auto companies (GM & Chrysler) to the unions as campaign payoffs too...over the actual ownership rights of the stockholders.
Some days your Nobel just does not get you out the gate and running.
DukeUPDATE: Thanks Little Duke for the Cross-Post and another slant on this. By the way the UN now sez the report was merely a consultant, so it does not count. RIGHT...Did the WH-UN phone line get overheated. The UN better watch it, or they'll be thrown into the FOXNews category!
Who Ya Gonna Believe...One of The Premier Consulting Firms or Your Politician?
John Hinderaker at Power Line blog answers.
His points are clear. DEM yowlers who speak against the report that insurance rates would go up have not even read the report and its underpinning information...but they already know the report is wrong cause it disagrees with them!
What more do you need to know. Trust your politician...he is much smarter than you! He knows the rules on information....if it agrees with him it is valid without inspection; if it disagrees it is junk and issued by right wing terrorist-sympathizing FOXNews watchers! Simple.
DukeUPDATE: Roger Kimball gets even more specific!
O-M-G....Polanski Is Depressed!!!!!
He feels so poorly since his incarceration facing a charge of "CHILD RAPE/SODOMIZATION!"
WOWEE! I hates when ALREADY-ADMITTED criminals feel badly because they are incarcerated. Gosh, just makes you wonder how bad the child who was victimized must feel...to this day!
But the "GolleeWood Crowd" find Roman innocent-as-a-lilly-white-sheep....
How could the governments/ordinary folks find him needing sentencing???? He has produced such stunningly-talented pieces as ?????????
WHO CARES???? He is a convicted felon. He is subject to the same rules/laws as would be all of us MORTALS for a similar crime!
Go Joe...Go!; Go Joe...Go!....etc.
Despite federal (Obama) opposition to his actually, you know, ENFORCING IMMIGRATION LAW!
....Sheriff Joe is facing attempted restraint by the Obama forces.Sheriff JOE Tells Them to Go To Heck!!!!
Bravo! Regards to the man who is actually ENFORCING THE LAWS OF THE LAND.....!
PrezBO Obama & his minions want nothing more than 13-18 million FREE VOTES from illegals....matters not what they cost....who they kill/maim/etc.
Speaks to Obama's Chicago roots! LOUDLY!
Headline of The Week: "It's a 12 Day Miracle! - Praise Obama & Pass The Hopium!"
& It is by John Kass in the Chicago Tribune news columns.
Hopium indeed....bet that word takes on a life of its own!
Your Tax Dollars.....NOT At Work!
But instead paying interest on money already spent/borrowed/etc.
If you think 40% of your tax dollar going for interest, instead of actually being used for programs, is something obscene just wait til Obama/DEM triumvirate of power gets through spending (borrowing/printing) this year and next!
This country is in a full monty financial dive!
Obama....The After Years.....Be They 2012 or 2016....
WAY TOO INTERESTING!!!!!
I am just gonna watch, and HOPE my money survives PrezBO!
WE WILL END "Don't Ask, Don't Tell!"....We Just Do Not Know When....
For the 40-emptyth time PrezBO has again told an admiring audience of GAYS that he will end this discrimination......He has been planning this since he was the junion Senator from Illinois. He just has NO TIMETABLE.....
He'll drag this dead horse out again in time for the 2012 Presidential election! Maybe he'll even beat the dead horse again so the "Gay Troops" know he is serious.....But some in the Gay community may, by then, begin to see a pattern.
ALL TALK & NO SHOW!
The Obama theme all along on.....well on......EVERYTHING!
The man talks one hell of a game (HEY, it got him a Nobel nomination just 11 days into office!). However the proof in the pudding thing is not gonna happen on A-N-Y Obama statement.
Never has, never will....and if you question "HIS ONENESS" you are racist!
Obama Tween A Rock & A Hard Place On Afghanistan!
His "The Taliban could be part of the government" statement indicated he was headed directly to a "no new forces as the insurgents can participate in this government and we'll all be happy" sort of an excuse for no action has blown up in his face as the Taliban claims victory when we remove ourselves from one untenable position....plus the current round of Taliban attacks in Pakistan.
Eventually Obama SHOULD recognize the state-of-affairs and grant the requested troops....but that is simply not in his surrender-at-all-costs nature.
Obama will find some obtuse argument that we REALLY don't need more troops because (WHATEVER!)....
His argument will be interesting, and sure to cause much more controversy. Obama is ill-equipt to handle such decisions, and his WRIGHT-AYERS-Whomever guiding coalition of advisers are just as clueless!
We are doomed to multiples of the Carter debacle until 2012.....
We may never recover as a nation!
DAY-BY-DAY Details Obamania.....
Featured on my site, the Sunday strip is too large to fully under stand unless youGO HERE!!!!
This man should be in every Sunday cartoon selection, but the "uber-liberal" MSM keep him semi-isolated.
Keep up the good work Chris!
Death Panel Makes Error & Almost Kills Grandmother!
NAW, we'll never have death panels here.....wink, wink!IT CAN ONLY HAPPEN IN ENGLAND...
Our government, after all, is soooooo much better at ruining
It is coming folks, and you will not like it.
In addition we get to start paying for it right away....BUT the "benefits" only begin in 2013! What a deal....you folks are buying the biggest pig-in-a-poke ever all for the HopeyChangey idiot in charge....I mean he has done so much right so far....He even got a Nobel for "talking" about peace and togetherness.
Our country & its government-educated lackeys are both sick!
DeMint Visits Honduras, Found 1 Person Supporting Zelaya...The U.S. Ambassador!!!
Patterico has the story....
Indeed! Why does Obama support the man who tried to rewrite the Honduran Constitution so he could stay in power? Perhaps he feels such a move is OK?
Did You Think Tea Parties Were Going Away?
NOPE!Instapundit received this pic from the Tucson Tea Party today...
Judging by the visible crowd (not all of it by any means), my guess is the Lame Stream Media will report...if they report at all...that "a few hundred" attended.
Gotta love those manipulative idiots.....well, not actually.
Whatever Happened to Global Warming????
Those who read this blog know I have said for years that the entire GW thing is vastly over-blown, and probably dead wrong.Now others are asking the question!
It does seem AlGore is strangely AWOL lately....either due his own recognition that his attempt at creating GW hysteria was wrong, or the MSM itself finds they might not be on very solid ground with the theme of GW.
What the cause may be is not important....finding a new cause for AlGore is! The man needs something to scream about.
This Will Clear Up Any Of Your ObamaCare Questions & Doubts!
THE BRIGHT SIDE OF OBAMACARE.....
Got that folks....?
Nobel Joke Reverberations!
No, No, I misled with that header.....the Nobel award was made to Obama, and is a joke only in its lack of seriousness by the Nobel Committee!
At The Times Online Michael Binyon gives this analysis;
"The award of this year’s Nobel peace prize to President Obama will be met with widespread incredulity, consternation in many capitals and probably deep embarrassment by the President himself.
Rarely has an award had such an obvious political and partisan intent. It was clearly seen by the Norwegian Nobel committee as a way of expressing European gratitude for an end to the Bush Administration, approval for the election of America’s first black president and hope that Washington will honour its promise to re-engage with the world.
Instead, the prize risks looking preposterous in its claims, patronising in its intentions and demeaning in its attempt to build up a man who has barely begun his period in office, let alone achieved any tangible outcome for peace"
His entire article can be read HERE!
The news is full of words from astonished folks around the world.
The Nobel is indeed a JOKE!
UPDATE: Some additional posts....Jay Tea at WizBang Blog!Patterico's Pontifications...Michelle Malkin...
Obama Saved The World From War In 13 Days!!!!
As Bill Cosby used to include in one of his routines; "He was fast...so fast, and he could stop on a dime and give you 9 cents change!"
Obama wins the Nobel Peace Prize.....and nominations closed 13 days after he took office.
The man is a true world-beater!
Oh, and he had to get the award faster than did Carter, or he could never top him in his efforts at ruining the USA. All the world loves a chicken in the WH!
HERE IT IS! - ObamaCare in Preview!!!!!
Yeppers folks, we gonna get treated by ObamaCare.....
Boy-O-Boy....what treatment we gonna get, and all it costs is HUGE SUMS OF OUR MONEY!
to do this!
You Obama/Democrat Junkies are gonna love this. AND, by the time you pull your collective heads out of your xxx it is too late and the deal is irreversible....just ask the British/Canadians.....
ObamaCare...vis-a-vis Baucus DOES NOT EXIST!
Smoke & Mirrors.......Sell the sizzle, not the steak.......GOTTCHA! Part 7 er 8 er 9....ARE YOU REALLY SURPRISED?
Then you are deaf, dumb and Democrat!
We are being sold a bill of goods entitled "just give me your money and healthcare & I'll take really, really, really good care of (your money!)...."
That is what we have folks, but is there any hope of stopping this massive fraud upon the USA? I doubt it.
Given my age of 66 plus, I guess I'll be either dead or unable to discern any lack-of-treatment by the time the DEM Dirge fully kicks in, but my kids/grands will inherit this "let-us-be-like-England/Canada" plan and suffer while the controlling pols lick their chops for more ways to fleece the public.
Welcome to Socialism!
Obama - "We Got Docs!"
They are OUR
docs....they are all dressed in white coats.....Man-O-Man it just does not get any better than this!.....
Except.....well, 1st of all
many of the docs now say they are not actually supporters of Obamacare!
OH &.....THE WHITE COATS WERE HANDED OUT BY STAFFERS TO MATCH THE OBAMA THEME-OF-THE-DAY!
My GOD....this stuff writes itself....
Can we say "Stockholm Spectacle, Part Deux????"
ROFL!!!! PrezBO, the gift that just keeps giving, and giving, and giving.....
OOPSIE! - U.N. Hides Afghan Vote Problems...Fires Those Who SAW The Problem!
The U.N. Continues its strong effort to insure it is unquestioned, and able to do what it wants, when it wants.....GO-READ-UNDERSTAND!
My God, WE
financially support this ignorant operation???
No longer a fairytale....now FACT!Dr. Helen Smith is all over the transition!
The Obamaites....including "The One"
, are clueless in Seattle...Washington...and Stockholm....
Galt is Real.....He is "In The House!"
Stimulus - Economy Downturn - Confidence Lacking....
Instapundit (Professor Glenn Reynolds) is all over it....
I was surprised to read in some poll today (has anyone else noticed there are about 3-5 polls released every day?) that economy is no longer the biggest thing on people's minds. It is BAD GOVERNMENT!
I buy into that!
I Got Your Stimulus....Right Here!
It is a good thing Obama, Biden & Gibbs continue to tell us how well things are going. Otherwise one might think WE'RE IN TROUBLE!
I am still astounded at the bald-faced lies they tell to try to appear confident and as if they, somehow, are more in touch than the masses.
ACORN Planning Massive Layoffs????
Must be the economy....he he!
BULLETIN.....CHICAGO OUT OF OLYMPICS RACE!
FOXNews is reporting that Chicago was eliminated in the 1st round of competition to host the 2016 Olympics!
PrezBO & the thundering herd of "super-supporters" including Oprah, FLOTUS, must have red faces.....I wanna see em!
UNEMPLOYMENT SOARS!!! Govt. sez 9.8%; However....
FOXNews "If laid-off workers who have settled for part-time work or have given up looking for new jobs are included, the unemployment rate rose to
the highest on records dating from 1994."
That is astounding!
Here is FOX's complete story!
From the "Lack-of-Stimulus" folks; Obama, Biden & mouthpiece Gibbs we still hear and read a glowing rosy picture of the stimulus.
Makes one wonder just what it would take to hear anything negative from them.
& As For That Whole H & C Thingee By Dear Leader PrezBO...
Jannifer Rubin details "The One's" current (lack of) support.
I believe I referred to Obama once before as Carter, II.....
Possibly understated by me as he seems bent on achieving an entire new level of incompetence to take the permanent lead.
Openness - Transparency....NOT SO MUCH!
So much for DEM/Obama effort at bring in the GOP...so we can "All get along!"IT AIN'T HAPPENING!!!!
Gooollleee...I am surprised! (NOT)
This Prez still believes he can pull the wool over all our eyes all the time.
Not gonna be!
Chicago = Olympics.......MASSIVE PAYOFFS!
DID YOU EXPECT LESS FROM THE DALEYITES???????NAW!!!! That how the "Machine" Is Greased!
SHI-CAW-GAH is always the same!
GM - vs - Saturn......Non-Union In A Union-Owned Environment!
Glenn Reynolds, "Instapundit" covers this idiocy nicely!
