Canada reassesses health care costs

The same day an article is published about how Canada is in such better shape financially because years ago they cut the cost of entitlements, another article is published about ballooning health care costs of the system Obama loves to tout




Memorial Day, 2010

James John Regan, 1980-2007

Obama timeline in pictures

He respects the office, takes all crises seriously (when he can gain an advantage from them), and, yeah, he's in it for the people.

NY Times columnist scorns women

Well, that's pretty much what it boils down to. Somehow for some reason whenever the subject of the subjugation of women in Islam comes up, liberals and so-called feminists side with the oppressors. It's not just dhimmitude; it's not just political correctness; it's not just willful ignorance; it's a hatred for the truth, freedom and it's rooted in anti-Americanism. One wonders what these people would do if they were in the same position. Here Powerline analyzes NY Times columnist Kristof's disparagement of Hirsi Ali. We begin with Kristof's column and move to Powerline's commentary. Oh, and did you know Muslims still hold slaves?

She has managed to outrage more people -- in some cases to the point that they want to assassinate her -- in more languages in more countries on more continents than almost any writer in the world today. 
That's only the beginning. Kristof goes on to write that Hirsi Ali "is working on antagonizing even more people," even though it "might seem presumptuous to write another memoir so soon." It is easy to see why so many want to kill her, Kristof says, since she is "by nature a provocateur, the type of person who rolls out verbal hand grenades by reflex." Bear in mind that in this case, the "provocateur's" "hand grenades" are arguments that little girls shouldn't have their clitorises cut out, be beaten for no particular reason, or be forced to marry men they haven't met. Is that provocative? To members of the Democratic Party, it is.

More school slapdowns of Christians

This is breathtaking. A public school bus driver referring to children this way--a taxpayer paid union member who brings the "offending" children back onto the bus to scream at them some more....and the family has to get a lawyer to see the tapes of the bus driver doing this! You can see why Obama's government wants to get rid of Fox News. I remember when all we had was Meet the Press.

Leftist media turns joke into racist comment

From Legal Insurrection:
This is the latest in a series on the use of the race card for political gain: 
Hey, did you hear the one where Bill O'Reilly called a black professor a drug dealer? What a racist. 
At least that is what Gawker wanted you to believe, in its post Bill O'Reilly Tells Black Guest He Looks Like a Drug Dealer (italics in original):

FTC seeks to "reinvent" journalism

Although it's hard to see how journalism could be any more in the tank for Democrats, lots of warning signals go up with this report from the Washington Examiner. Who chooses who gets government funding? What happens to those who do not? Who decides what "standards" are to be met? How on earth can any newspaper be considered "free press" if the government is tied up in it? And where are all those idiots claiming Bush was trying to control their lives? We need a new website called "ImagineifBushhaddoneit.com"

Release of the Federal Trade Commission'sworking paper on "reinventing journalism" makes it clear that there is no more time for diplomacy about this issue: Barack Obama is determined to federalize the news industry just as he has banking, autos, and health care.
Everybody who wants independent journalism had better wake up to these three facts about what is going on right now:

Bizarre encounter between Secret Service and Farrakahn's goons

Hm. Did you know they all live in the same neighborhood? And that Farrakahn's house is a "religious" tax exempt dwelling? And that the Secret Service stands down in the face of the Fruit of Islam? Remind me what country this is again?

President Obama’s home is in the same Chicago neighborhood as Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan.  On Saturday night, the overlapping of Obama’s and Farrakhan’s worlds made for a strange, and sometimes testy, encounter between the Secret Service, the press corps covering the president, and the paramilitary security force, the Fruit of Islam, surrounding Farrakhan.

The One declares he will not desert them, leaves

He gets 15 minutes of instruction about the tarball problem and then lectures everyone on camera. Committed to his photo op, he spent 3 hours flying back and forth from Chicago to La.,  poseuring awkwardly on the beach in his mucklucks for the cameras, fondles a tarball for a minute, throws it down and gets back on the plane. Ugh.


The following is a timeline of President Obama's tour in the Gulf coast Friday:
9:15 a.m. ET: Obama leaves Chicago. :
11:10 a.m.: Air Force One lands in New Orleans.
Noon: Obama arrives at Fourchon Beach, La., with Coast Guard Adm. Thad Allen and LaFourche Parish President Charlotte Randolph. The president inspects the shoreline, picking up small balls of tar that have washed up. 
12:40 p.m.: Obama leaves the beach en route to a Coast Guard station. 
12:57 p.m.: Obama and Allen speak briefly to pool cameras about the cleanup. The president afterward attends a briefing with Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, Alabama Gov. Bob Riley, Florida Gov. Charlie Crist, Sen. Mary Landrieu, D-La., Sen. David Vitter, R-La., and other officials. 
2:56 p.m.: Obama addresses the media. The president says "the buck stops with me" and announces that he is ordering more workers to coastlines where oil is coming ashore.
3:33 p.m.: Obama boards Air Force One and departs for Chicago.

What is the liberals' president's job?

James Taranto has an answer:

What exactly is the job of the president of the United States? Let's ask the man who currently holds that position, Barack Obama:
My job right now is just to make sure that everybody in the Gulf understands this is what I wake up to in the morning and this is what I go to bed at night thinking about: the spill.
Obama's job description is fascinating. He has been depicted as a proponent of "activist government," but this may be a bum rap. Now he tells us he thinks that if he somehow gets people to think about him and how much he's thinking about what he thinks they think he should be thinking about, his job is done.

Good fences make good neighbors

Liberal blogger brags about lunching with Joe McGinniss and letting his dog poop on the Palins' lawn. Boy, these people sure have revealed themselves to the world, claiming Palin has incited "hatred" toward them for stalking her. Wow. The self delusion.

And Joe is set up to work on the book. With the fence looming over the south-facing windows, the Palins can, from the top floor of the main house, look down on Joe, typing away on his MacBook Pro, even if he can’t see them. No doubt they’re already installing, probably with Newscorp help, instruments in the cult compound that can decipher Joe’s keyboard strokes.
I did have the satisfaction, while helping Joe deal with a stream of intruders coming down his driveway, of watching my dog, Strider, go over to the Palin’s yard and leave a present. I gave him an extra treat when we got home.

More on govt destroying evidence

In the James O Keefe Louisiana case. 

James O'Keefe and his henchmen discovered something important about a political actor. Had that political actor been a Republican, the entire nation would be celebrating his craftiness and fearlessness in exposing a lie, with the media cheerleading this response, even if he had to (barely) bend the law to accomplishment.
But the actor was a Democrat, and so the story is about the penny-ante lawbreaking that ferreted out the information.
And not only that, the information itself is destroyed. By court order. The apparatus of the state rising up with alacrity and menace to protect a member of government from accountability to the public.

Sappy reporting at the AP

Imagine writing this about any other president than the current messiah. President Obama will be sleeping in his own bed. Not in DC. How much lower can they go? 

Hanky panky in Louisiana O'Keefe case

Over at Hot AIr:

I know of no justification for the destruction of the taped footage. A defendant’s property can be forfeited under certain circumstances — if he commits a felony. O’Keefe pled to a misdemeanor. Surrendering the footage was not part of the plea agreement, which you can read here. Nor is there any national security issue in play; O’Keefe has confirmed to me that he and his companions accessed only thepublic reception area of Landrieu’s office.
In addition, the footage was potentially exculpatory evidence in O’Keefe’s criminal case, and as such should have been turned over immediately after his arrest. The Government has admitted, in court documents signed by the Government lawyer, that O’Keefe’s intent was “not to actually tamper with the phone system, or to commit any other felony” but rather “to orchestrate a conversation about phone calls to the Senator’s staff and capture the conversation on video.” This means that the tape recording made by O’Keefe was exculpatory evidence, which would have helped him prove the lack of intent that the Government eventually admitted.

Oh Supreme Court rules health care repeal WILL be on ballot

November. It's all about November.

Mexican pirates feared in Texas

The violence of Mexico is always reaching across the border, which the president knows and refuses to do anything about. It seems American foreign policies include sticking heads in the sand. Hopefully those heads will still be attached to bodies.

Palin stalker posts no trespassing sign

Old Joe was quite grumpy when ABC knocked on his door...threatens to call the police. Nice. The ABC report laughs it up, really funny. Stalking is really funny.

Bill to repeal health care

As difficult as it is to accomplish, a bill has been introduced by the GOP to repeal the health care monstrosity that will bankrupt this country and destroy health care, particularly for senior citizens:
“As unpopular as this healthcare bill is today, it’s at the height of its popularity,” Blunt said. “The more the American people know about it, the more concerns they are going to have, and the more they are going to look at alternatives.” 
Chances are slim Republicans could get their measure to the floor, given the Democratic majorities in the chamber, but it could make a useful campaign tool for the party. 

Coordinating their responses

Well, if you tell the truth, you don't have to remember what you said. Regarding the Sestak/White House scandal, some commentary regarding the upcoming coordinated White House response:
There will be an official response shortly on the Sestak issue, which I hope will answer your questions,” Mr. Obama told reporters at a White House news conference. “I can assure the public that nothing improper took place.”
If nothing improper happened why do they need time to formulate a response? Well according to a report by the Washington Post, it may be because everybody needs to get their story straight. Tonight Joe Sestak said his brother, who is the campaign's political strategist and lawyer met yesterday with the White House met about the scandal surrounding the job offer.

Feel good moment of the day

Who is Joe McGinniss?

This is an excellent blog post on the history of Joe McGinniss, the stalking writer who has moved in next to Sarah Palin and whose publisher calls him "well regarded." This is well worth the time to read his background:
Now, if Joe McGinniss truly was the "well regarded" and "highly respectful" investigative journalist his publishing house said he is, why he didn't actually do the legwork MacDonald's defense team paid him to do and investigate and report MacDonald's story? The answer is obvious: a book about a handsome Army doctor who turned psychopathic and drug crazed and viciously murdered his beautiful - and pregnant - wife and two young daughters is far more compelling and sells far more books than a book about prosecutorial misconduct, as evidenced by the fact that many people have heard of Fatal Vision but few have heard of Fatal Justice.

More on protestors at 14 year old boy's house

What the heck is going on that even the police are supporting these thugs? This was an appalling situation where 500 people driven in 14 buses descended on the private property of this individual, who wasn't even home, and screamed and chanted and made scenes, yet the police chief says, well, they didn't see them and they were all peaceful and not a problem. Ugh. The police chief appears in this interview to be a union sympathizer.

Congress coming after bloggers

Free speech for THEM and for the NY Times but not for BLOGGERS, the new media. And why? Because they don't like the fact that bloggers have broken more stories and researched and found the truth about The One and his party than the MSM. That's why. Are there no moderate Democrats? Of course, the idea behind this is the law and the connections of unions and newspapers will protect them from any kind of injury or accusation, while once again the little guy is in the cross hairs of the government and, of course, the bloggers' competition: the MSM.

Under the DISCLOSE Act, certain incorporated entities would be restricted in how they can exercise their free speech rights. There is an exemption for some in the media sphere like newspapers, TV news, and the like. However, there is one driving force in today’s public debate that is NOT exempt. Bloggers will not have the same exemption provided to other media sources. Never mind that the Supreme Court’s opinion in the Citizens United case stated, “Differential treatment of media corporations and other corporations cannot be squared with the First Amendment.”
For many bloggers to exercise their free speech rights, they would have to jump through the same onerous new hoops as many businesses, nonprofit groups, and even such threats to democracy as your local chamber of commerce. If this sounds like an absurd overreach by one party in power, I invite you to take a look at their government takeover of health care, taxpayer-funded bailouts, and general hostility to private sector economic growth.

More on Mexico's mistreatment of illegals

Hypocrites.

Get that body movin'

So here's the latest pic of The One's wife pushing her Let's Move program. She's such a fashion icon that she works out in pedal pushers, floral top and tiny cardigan. And are those your $600 silver sneakers? Yeah. Well, here's the thing. This looks stupid. Get your workout clothes on, girlfriend. And why do this on the LAWN? It's a crummy photo op. Where were your handlers.

And his kingdom crumbles


The One's reaction to the various crises around the country has truly been astounding, in addition to complaining that no one's had it harder than he has as president. He screams at private company BP to clean up the **** hole, even while partying down and acting totally uninterested in taking responsibility for solving the problem (unlike the bank crisis, the pension crisis, the auto crisis...); he sends 1200 paper pushers to the border while screaming at Republicans for wanting to seal the borders with troops in a face to face matchup with Corker, he continues to cater to his far left wing base while ignoring the Sestak scandal (is Sestak a liar or is the administration lying? Which is it?). Meanwhile Republican governors request help, only to be met by stony silence. And the president parties and fund raises and complains and golfs and has his minions scold the press for asking too many pointed questions. Yeah. That's the America I know. He's hiding from events, just as he hid (and played golf) when the Detroit bomber struck. This behavior of hiding and blaming others is something we're growing to expect from the leader (?) of the free world (?).

The president's pity parties

He's had the roughest years since FDR. He's been picked on. He's got terrorism to fight. He's got PROBLEMS with Republicans.
Obama’s whining is puerile. One does hope it’s been the toughest year and a halfhe’s ever had. He is the president, and it’s a job that requires a bit of work. But to treat the previous presidents with so little respect is unbecoming. Sure, he has two wars to fight – just as his predecessor did – and a global struggle against radical Islam. But he isn’t even focusing (with a few exceptions) on these events. What seems to have him down is that he has a political opposition resisting his agenda. 

The presidency is a job that you really have to want in order to get. The last thing people want to hear from a president is even an iota of self-pity.

Still, at 13...

Obama nominated THIS person for the court?

It is really hard to believe that The One is not trying to destroy this country, bit by bit. Watch this video and you'll agree. Ace has the story:
You've got to be pretty hard core to fight against the death penalty in the case of an eight-time serial strangler (seven time rapist, too). Especially when the rapist-murderer himself doesn't want to fight his execution any further. 
You've got to be really hardcore to bully the guy's lawyer into signing a motion for a stay of execution that the client didn't want but you wanted to sign. 
Admitted. Guilty as sin.  
So why this fight for a rapist-murderer's life?

Seize BP??

This picture ought to chill you to the bone. In yet another attempt to take over a private business, "protestors" (read: commies, socialists, anarchists, union thugs) demand that the government SEIZE BP. Ironic, considering how utterly inadequate our government's response has been to the actual oil spill. Watch as Obama backpedals and spins that it ain't his fault...it's, um, Bush's fault? The Yahoo article attempts to assuage any anxiety anyone might have about Obama's handling of it. This article also only attempts to warn the White House to get it's act together. Updated with link.

According to the poll, 53 percent rate Obama's handling "poor" or "very poor"; 43 percent believe Obama is doing a good job.
Yet the poll also finds that the public tends to blame others in the mess more than it blames the White House. Asked  broadly about the federal government's role, 60 percent rated the response "poor." BP got the lowest marks: 73 percent of Americans gave the company's handling of the spill a "poor" rating. Still, a whopping 68 percent say BP should remain incharge of the cleanup.

Even opposites can play together

If they WANT to. Or not. Laugh.

The Sestak problem

So I've been puzzling over the Sestak problem. He's in a bit of a conundrum at this point, because he's claimed that the administration has broken the law by offering him a job not to run but now that he's a Democrat candidate, he's being queried constantly about the details of it. Who did it? And how could someone like Emanuel or Axelrod offer something like that (Secretary of the Navy?) without the approval of The One. So what's he going to do, I ask myself? I kinda like the guy and he seems like a good representative of the military but something just doesn't add up. Now Blackfive has a rundown that all makes sense. Read it here:

So here's what I think.  I think the fact that Joe Sestak -- even after being called a liar by Robert Gibbs -- has not come forward and made a statement to the authorities about felony corruption he claims to have witnessed says something about Joe Sestak.  And what it says is this:  Joe Sestak is either a coward, a liar, a political sycophant or -- and this is where I'd put my money -- all three of these things.  
Whatever Joe Sestak learned in the Navy, it wasn't "personal accountability."  

The oceans aren't receding

     Well, here's the thing. You live by the sword, you die by the...All the monkeys who were on Bush after 9/11 and Katrina have suddenly wakened at the nightmare going on with the oil leak. Lots of weak protestations starting up around the country from his own people (well, the east and left coasts, where the MSM resides) about the inaction of the president to the crisis. 

     So what's he do ? He vacations. 
     He has only visited the area once, while Bush visited the Katrina area 7 times. Bush had offered federal help the day before the levees broke and it was rejected, while Jindal is begging the feds to back off and let him put up a barrier to save the marshlands. 
     Then word comes the The Messiah got into a snit with the Republicans when he deigned to have a luncheon (at taxpayer expense) with them and they weren't compliant to his wishes. The weasels who are Republicans finally seem to be growing spines, as they actually mocked his behavior publicly.
     The economy continues to worsen, and the Bam's spokesman Gibbs is getting snippy because he's being asked too many times about the BP disaster and the Sestak scandal, which has the potential to ruin him, although his "Justice" department seems to find nothing wrong in anything he or his people do. 
     So what's he do? He takes a vacation. Oh, and he's not planning to waste his day off (between the parties and the golf outings and the vacations) on visiting any old war memorial.
     On a day when even Imus is making fun of Dodd for trying to blame the oil spill on Bush, The One has had numerous news outlets reminding him about his vow that he was going to make the OCEANS RECEDE and the PLANET HEAL ITSELF.
     Are we sorry yet?
It was a rough day for President Barack Obama. The Sestak suspected bribery case was back in the news. Republican Governor Bobby Jindal of Louisiana attacked him for his failure to act on the Gulf oil spill crisis. The media made a stink about his second vacation this month since the devastating Gulf oil explosion. Republicans refused to support his radical leftist agenda. And, now this…

Tuesday, May 25, 2010

Well, well, well, well, WELL. It seems The One got his panties in a knot today; lots of clucking around the web about how naughty he was to the Repubs. It's always the same m.o. He walks in, demands they listen to him, doesn't to them, and then gets mad when they don't agree. Because, you know, he's The One.
Some Republicans were less kind.
"He needs to take a Valium before he comes in and talks to Republicans," Sen.Pat Roberts, R-Kan., told reporters. "He's pretty thin-skinned."
Sen. David Vitter, R-La., said he addressed Obama, "trying to demand overdue action" on the giant oil spill damaging Gulf coast states. He said got "no specific response" except Obama's pledge to have an authoritative WhiteHouse official call him within hours.
Sen. John McCain of Arizona, Obama's 2008 presidential opponent, said he pressed the president on immigration issues. McCain said he told Obama "we need to secure the border first" before taking other steps. "The president didn't agree," he said.

Illegal alien immunity

Yes, this is a serious subject. Not only are they teaching in certain states that Arizona is part of Mexico, they have immunity in certain crimes. Read at NRO:
Now we have the developing concept of what you might call "illegal-alien immunity," which exempts unauthorized immigrants from a wide variety of laws. My colleague Ron Mortensen writes about it in the context of an illegal alien in Georgia arrested for, among other things, driving without a license. Boston troublemaker Michael Graham writes with relish today about an illegal alien who crashed into a pro-illegal-immigration state legislator, was arrested for drunk driving etc., and simply laughed at the police, saying he would just go "back to my home country, Mexico" — a likely prospect, since Massachusetts judges can't take legal status into account when making bail decisions.

Another job scam from the government

Story after story has emerged about the scam that is the Census, not to mention all the ads that are still running advertising it. Now it is discovered that the Census is being used to inflate job numbers enormously, not just from the number of workers hired but the number of workers rehired, time after time at an hour a "job."

What's up with Jack Cafferty?

He's been off the reservation for a couple weeks now. In the past, everything was Bush's fault. Now he's starting to see the light, which must surely make the other CNN anchors VERY uncomfortable. We'll see how long he lasts.

The enormity of the budget...and the debt

They don't even want to discuss the budget because it reveals the porousness of the state of the economy. They also don't want all of us to know the true extent of their borrowing.

More on rationing health care

The Blog Prof:
A step towards rationing? It is the very foundation of rationing! Comparative effectiveness takes only 2 factors into account when deciding to give a thumbs up or down (just like the Caesars did centuries ago in the Colosseum): 1) your age, and 2) the cost. It's called comparative effectiveness and is the lynch pin of the rationing that will be handed out by a group of bureaucrats given great power over all decisions medical that will essentially put them between you and your doctor. Obama's fidelity-challenged budget director Peter Orszag spilled the beans recently on what are essentially death panels:

The auto workers, the fed workers, the teachers and now all troubled unions

You may have seen the first report that the Congress is proposing billions of dollars to "save" teacher jobs for a year or two (because districts can't afford to maintain their stimulus jobs), but now did you know that all unions, whose pensions are not only underfunded but impossibly escalating, are asking to be "bailed out" by the government, even for the ones making 400,000$ or more? (And, yes, that's a PENSION.)


How do you excuse this?

How do you pretend this did not happen? Like the stampede on AIG executives last fall, SEIU "protesters" swamped the home of a Bank of America executive, with only his teenage son at home. (By now, you've heard this.) Powerline has an excellent report about this situation. Nina Easton, a neighbor of the man whose son was terrorized, is a left of center reporter whose husband worked for the McCain campaign (if memory serves correct.) It is obvious, at this point, that these thugs think that it is their right to intimidate folks who work for any of these companies. That it is their right to stomp on the property of those who oppose their point of view. If you read nothing about this controversy (which you probably won't because the MSM isn't covering it), read these two articles, remembering that the goal of this is to become Greece. We are to become Greece, where 19 year olds complain that their dreams have been stolen because they won't have an ample pension by 53 years of age. We will NOT become Greece. We will NOT become Greece.

Arcane legislation for special interest groups, including the armed forces and those who held hazardous jobs, meant that pensions could be had as early as 45. The daughters of deceased army officers could claim their father's pension for a lifetime if they remained unmarried; a hairdresser working with "dangerous" chemicals could receive pensions by the age of 50; a policeman on the beat could leave his job all expenses paid at the age of 45.
And this:
There are signs that the movement to shame public employees may catch on. The Web site californiapensionreform.com provides a searchable database of all 12,201 public employees in that state earning six-figure pensions.
In case you were wondering, Bruce Malkenhorst, former city administrator from Vernon, Calif., earns a pension of $509,664 a year. Yes, you read that right.

Email: it was all for naught

For all of you out there across the globe who have fought so hard to tackle the hideous enemy of our planet, namely carbon emissions, that bogus god you worship named "Climate Change" or "Global Warming", there is some really bad news that will be very painful for you to process.
The current volcanic eruption going on in Iceland, since it first started spewing volcanic ash, has, to this point, NEGATED EVERY SINGLE EFFORT you have made in the past five years to control CO2 emissions on our planet. Not only that, this single act of God has added emissions to the earth estimated to be 42 times more than can be corrected by the extreme human regulations proposed for annual reductions.
It's very disheartening to realize that all of the carbon emission savings you have accomplished while suffering the inconvenience and expense of driving Prius hybrids, buying fabric grocery bags, sitting up til midnight to finish your kid's "The Green Revolution" science project, throwing out all of your non-green cleaning supplies, using only two squares of toilet paper, putting a brick in your toilet tank reservoir, selling your Landcruiser and speedboat, going on vacation to a city park instead of overseas, nearly getting hit every day on your bicycle, replacing all of your $1 light bulbs with $10 light bulbs ...well, all of those things you have done have all gone down the tubes in just the past week. The volcanic ash emitted into the Earth's atmosphere in the past weeks has totally erased every single effort you have made to reduce the evil beast carbon. And, those thousands of jobs you helped move to Asia with expensive emissions demands on businesses...you know, the ones that are creating even more emissions than when they were creating our jobs, well that must seem really worthwhile now. And I do wish that there was some kind of silver lining to this volcanic ash cloud but the fact of the matter is that the bush fire season across the western U.S.A. will start in about 2 months and those fires will negate your efforts to reduce carbon emissions in our world for the next 2 years.
So, grab a beer, give the world a hug, and have nice day!

Drunk illegal alien rams car of Mass official

The president parties!

Party down! The country suffers, real unemployment is 17%, there's a crisis in the Gulf as thousands of jobs just go away, animals die, private businesses and lands are taken over by the government and the president talks of global governance to men and women who are taking the opportunity to lay down their lives for their country. The country's borders are flooded with people trying to milk it of every  But millions of taxpayer dollars are being spent on parties and gowns. Remember when Nancy Reagan had parties? Quite a different story there. No clucking or condemning from the press, no matter how ugly Michelle's outfits are. No sad stories about people living in the street or how the president is responsible for all the bad stuff happening in the world.

A liberal wakes up?

There's a question mark at the end of the title of this post because many liberals never seem to actually "wake up." They seem to get flashes of insight about particular incidents, and then flip back to their old ways. Here Marty Peretz, who is the editor of the New Republic, has just begun to notice that The One has a problem with, um, Jews. And that somehow anything a Muslim (no matter how radical) does is part of their tradition and thus understandable, if not acceptable. The absurd photo op that The One presented by never mentioning Danny Pearl was a Jew was worse than The One talking about a global governance plan at West Point the other day. This entire article is worth reading:

Republican takes Hawaii

Granted there were significant other circumstances, like two top Dems fighting with each other and refusing to withdraw, even though they knew they split the vote. But don't watch the press make a big deal out of this like the did the one in Pennsylvania:

Somebody was actually PAID to create these

These are the mascots for the next Olympics. What kind of a brain thought this up and WHO paid real money for its development? The blue one looks like it has a diaper on the the orange one likes like a firecracker exploded on it. You would expect something bizarre like this from the Japanese but the BRITISH?
