Oh, that's ok! We'll just throw money at public education. PFFFFFT!

“What we are buying here is a modest home, not a mansion. What we are getting here is a starter home. It’s got a good foundation: 30 million Americans are covered. It’s got a good roof: A lot of protections from abuses by insurance companies. It’s got a lot of nice stuff in there for prevention and wellness. But, we can build additions as we go along in the future. It is a starter home. Think about it in that way,”
Oh, and just to be crystal clear, he followed-up with this:
“At some point in the near future, and I don’t know exactly how long it is going to be, we are going to have some sort of a public option out there. We might not get it in this bill, but it will come in as the years go by"

Speaking at a Home Depot in Northern Virginia, President Barack 'The Moron' Obama had this to say:
"From the moment we took office … we began investing in newer, stronger foundations for lasting growth. One that would free us from the cycle of boom and bust that has been so painful. One that would create good jobs and opportunities for a growing middle class," Obama said. "Clean energy can be a powerful engine for that kind of growth."
What "stronger foundations for lasting growth"?? What is this idiot talking about??
“I just received a report from Vice President Biden that confirms that as a result of the steps that we’ve taken, a major transformation of our economy is well under way. We are on track to double renewable energy production … by the year 2012.”
A "major transformation of our economy"??? The major transformation is the 17% unemployment you've created! IDIOT!
"The simple act of retro-fitting”" - installing new windows, doors, cooling and heating equipment, etc. - "is one of the fastest, easiest and cheapest things we can do to put Americans back to work while saving money and reducing harmful emissions,"
Hey moron! Don't you know that most construction products including heating and cooling equipment is manufactured abroad!!!
Amazing!!! Caulking windows and doors is going to put Americans back to work??
WHAT A FREAKIN MORON!

“Whatever mistakes we have made, the plain fact is this,” Mr. Obama said. “The United States of America has helped underwrite global security for more than six decades with the blood of our citizens and the strength of our arms.”
Surprisingly, there was no mention of peace through superior fire-power.

WRONG, IDIOT! Businesses aren’t nervous about “the risks that are inherent in a free market system,” they are nervous about the risks inherent in a government dominated economy, and the complete financial irresponsibility coming from Washington!
The JOB SUMMIT was held yesterday in Washington.
We are told that Obama brought together the smartest and brightest to 'talk' about job creation.
I must applaud the President for doing this because he obviously knows nothing about business and especially creating jobs.
Anyway, I took a look at the list of the people invited and imagine my surprise when I saw the names of some of America's great job creators.

The White House has asserted that our relationship with China is at "an all time high" after Obama's visit to Asia. It's clear now that we have a White House and a President that measures success in terms of popularity. It may be true that the current occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue has "an all time high" approval rating from the Chinese and the Russians and the Iranians, but it isn't because our relationship with those countries is at "an all time high".
The White House went to China with a 71 car motorcade, hundreds of staffers that had never been to Asia and a flying party on Air Force One. Reporters on the trip have silently told their friends that they are having a great time with lots of shopping time and wonderful dinners. The problem with this expensive taxpayer funded travelogue for the White House is that by not pressing China on the issue of Iran or building support for the Proliferation Security Initiative with Japan, South Korea and China they are sending the message that these issues are not that important to us. Why not press the Chinese to stop the North Korean march toward nuclear weapons?
A basic rule of international diplomacy is that when you show up for an official visit you have to also ask for something in return. I am beginning to see a pattern with this White House - one in which they know how to socialize but not how to negotiate.

Today, union membership has fallen to 7.3%of all private sector workers. But it is a completely different story in the public sector: 37.6% of government employees belong to unions.
Those 7.9 million unionized government employees make up 51% of all union members nationwide. Most union members today now work for.................. Uncle Sam.
Last year the Service Employee International Union (SEIU) spent 60.7 million dollars of employee union dues to elect Obama, that is why when the White House released it's official visitors list, the #1 visitor to the White House was none other than Andrew Stern who just happens to be President of..................................Service Employee International Union (SEIU)
Keep that in the back of your head when you hear Obama talk about job growth.
Job growth to Obama is government job growth, union government job growth, which is nothing but a huge money spigot to Obama/LibDemocrat coffers.

If this is true then just about all the worst fears we had about Obama as Commander in Chief are coming true.
WASHINGTON - President Barack Obama does not plan to accept any of the Afghanistan war options presented by his national security team, pushing instead for revisions to clarify how and when U.S. troops would turn over responsibility to the Afghan government, a senior administration official said Wednesday.
He has already had the advice of his entire military chain of command with a near unanimous call for for reinforcements to move to the strategy that won in Iraq. We have watched as he has heard from the deep wisdom of Joe Biden and Rahm Emanuel. We have seen him dither and quibble and show a completely ineffectual and uncommitted face to our enemies and the rest of the world. Now months after his hand-picked commander has told him the situation is bad and getting worse, our troops in the field fight and die without the support of their Commander in Chief. He sent 21,000 more brave men and women there and now they are flappin' in the breeze. How can a squad leader look his men in the eyes and tell them to saddle up and head out on a patrol, perhaps to be the last to die for a cause their President no longer believes in?
You can't set the circumstances for victory before you commit to trying to win one. You can't set your strategy based on the hope that quality government will just spring up in the midst of chaos with no security. You can't just magic a functional, fighting Afghan Army out of nothing without competent US forces to first beat the insurgency down to a manageable level. Then they take the Afghans to the field for joint operations to build their confidence just like we did in Iraq. If your goal is simply to turn things over to the Afghans, then hand them the goddamn keys right now. Make a couple of passes over the worst Taliban strongholds, bomb the living shit out of them and then bring our troops home.
Whatever decision you end up making, you have shown a complete lack of leadership ability. You have made the job of our military more difficult everywhere as our enemies have seen you are not the strong horse. This entire process reeks of politics and the hands of your slimy Chicago fixers Emanuel and Axelrod. Why do I think you are looking for someone to hand you a plan that lets you start retreating before your 2012 elections and an appointment with your left wing? Well the rest of us get to vote as well sir, and we are watching your every back sliding step. America doesn't go to war based on an exit strategy, we go to win. Think about that. Also think about just how wrong you were about Iraq, over and over and over. Go in to win or bring them home now.Make the call!
Did he say "we've cut taxes"?? On whom?
Saved a million jobs? How did he do that, and what jobs were specifically saved?? More Obama bullshit!
Did he say "we've had job growth"? The only jobs that have been created have been either temporary of more government bureaucracy jobs. Hey idiot! The private sector isn't hiring.
Did he say that "companies have not been willing to hire"? NO SHIT MensaBoy! Who in their right mind can even consider expanding with you and your cronies continuing to crush the economy?
A JOB GROWTH SUMMIT where he's going to listen to everyone. WHAAAAA HA HA!!!!
Spoken like a true Community Organizer!!! Let's get together and talk. Let's chat and pat ourselves on the back and announce that everything is fine.
This guy doesn't know the first thing about private sector job creation, and I doubt he even gives a $hit.
For the last couple of years, Dobbs has been very outspoken on issues that are 'touchy' to the lefties at CNN.
From illegal immigration, the government takeover of industries, and health-care reform, Dobbs has been the only reasonable, and moderate voice at the once proud news network...........and now he's leaving.
Congratulations Mr. Dobbs, it's about time.

“What I think is appropriate is that in the same way that everybody has to get auto insurance and if you don't, you're subject to some penalty, that in this situation, if you have the ability to buy insurance, it's affordable and you choose not to do so, forcing you and me and everybody else to subsidize you, you know, there's a thousand dollar hidden tax that families all across America are -- are burdened by because of the fact that people don't have health insurance, you know, there's nothing wrong with a penalty.”
Eh Mr President, may I remind you that not everyone has to have auto insurance. Millions of people don't even own cars! What an idiot!

On September 24, Speaker Nancy Pelosi told THE WEEKLY STANDARD that she was "absolutely" committed to putting the text of the final House bill online for 72 hours before the House votes:
TWS: Madam Speaker, do you support the measure to put the final House bill online for 72 hours before it's voted on at the very end?
PELOSI: Absolutely. Without question.
But now, when asked if Speaker Pelosi will leave the bill online for 72 hours after we see what's in the rule, Pelosi spokesman Brendan Daly replied in an email: "No; [the] pledge was to have manager’s amendment online for 72 hours, and we will do that."Apparently Pelosi's agreement to leave the "final" bill online "at the very end" of the process wasn't such a straightforward pledge.

There's been a lot of chatter about Obama losing weight and the cause of it.
Some are saying that he's skipping meals. I doubt it.
Others are saying that he's back to chain smoking. Could be.
My theory is that any time a person gets a real job right after graduation, the pressure from the new-found responsibilities will have an impact.

Obama Cuts Pro-Democracy Funds for IranWednesday, October 14, 2009 7:34 PM
By: Kenneth R. Timmerman
The Obama administration has cut funding for pro-democracy and human rights programs in Iran, reversing years of efforts during the Bush administration to help develop a civil society, congressional sources told Newsmax this week.
The move is apparently intended to please Iran’s rulers after they criticized President Obama and the State Department for allegedly seeking to fund a “velvet revolution” during the June presidential elections in Iran.
“It sounds like the Iranians complained in Geneva and we acceded to their demands,” a former senior government official familiar with the pro-democracy programs told Newsmax.
First off, government doesn't create jobs, government has to create an environment that is fertile for job creation........in the private sector. This of course, is a foreign subject for Obama.
If you want to create jobs, you need the following:
1. A positive economic outlook: Right now the Obama policies are not creating that. You have a weakening dollar and gold at an all time high. Have those 2 thing occurred by themselves? No. And those are not positive signs for the US economy.
2. Less government regulation: Ask any businessman, from any walk of life, if business-chocking regulations are worse today than they were 5 years ago, and you will hear a resounding YES!
3. Reduce cost of labor: From rising minimum wages to mandated employee benefits, wages/costs in many sectors are artificially high due to government regulations. On top of that, you throw-in the pro-labor/unions policies this administration is implementing, and you have more rising costs on the horizon. Again, not good for business.
4. Less uncertainty: Talk to any businessman and ask them what they foresee in the next 6 months, and not one can give you a clear picture. They just don't know what new anti-business scheme is going to come out of Washington.
Ask any businessman, large or small, if they believe they have a friend in The White House?
From out of control deficits, runaway government spending, and looming higher taxes, we have an administration that is constantly attacking business and raising the specter of more government intervention and regulations. Is that good for business and job creation? I don't think so!

The plan, which Fox News has learned was agreed to in principle during negotiations, would constitute the most intrusive weapons inspection program the U.S. has ever accepted.
Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, who met with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, said publicly Tuesday that the two nations have made "considerable" progress toward reaching agreement on a new strategic arms treaty.
The 1991 Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty, or START, expires in December and negotiators have been racing to reach agreement on a successor.
Clinton said the U.S. would be as transparent as possible.
"We want to ensure that every question that the Russian military or Russian government asks is answered," she said, calling missile defense "another area for deep cooperation between our countries."
On another critical issue, Lavrov declared that it would be counterproductive to threaten Iran with more sanctions over its nuclear program -- as he resisted efforts by Clinton to win agreement for tougher measures should Iran fail to prove its program is peaceful.

Sima Samar: Women’s rights activist in Afghanistan: “With dogged persistence and at great personal risk, she kept her schools and clinics open in Afghanistan even during the most repressive days of the Taliban regime, whose laws prohibited the education of girls past the age of eight. When the Taliban fell, Samar returned to Kabul and accepted the post of Minister for Women’s Affairs.”
Ingrid Betancourt: French-Colombian ex-hostage held for six years.
Dr. Denis Mukwege: Doctor, founder and head of Panzi Hospital in Bukavu, Democratic Republic of Congo. He has dedicated his life to helping Congolese women and girls who are victims of gang rape and brutal sexual violence.”
Handicap International and Cluster Munition Coalition: “These organizations are recognized for their consistently serious efforts to clean up cluster bombs, also known as land mines. Innocent civilians are regularly killed worldwide because the unseen bombs explode when stepped upon.”
Hu Jia: Human rights activist and an outspoken critic of the Chinese government, who was sentenced last year to a three-and-a-half-year prison term for ‘inciting subversion of state power.’”
Wei Jingsheng: Spent 17 years in Chinese prisons for urging reforms of China’s communist system. He now lives in the United States.”
AND THE WINNER IS!!!!!

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A top U.S. labor group on Thursday asked the Obama administration's "pay czar" to stop any retirement payments to Bank of America Chief Executive Ken Lewis.
The Service Employees International Union sent a letter to pay czar Kenneth Feinberg, calling Lewis "one of the chief architects" of the economic crisis and saying he should not receive any retirement or severance package until the bank stops foreclosures and increases lending.
"Taxpayers have already provided nearly $200 billion in bailouts and backstops to Bank of America," the letter said. "This enormous public investment entitles taxpayers to have a say in the bank's executive compensation practices."
If you take FED money, be prepared to have unions thugs along with a PAY CZAR have a say in what your compensation will be.
Good luck Mr. Lewis!

On a daily basis were are being told that Obama is weighing all options on how to proceed in Afghanistan. But what if Obama decides to go against the McChrystal strategy? What does McChrystal do??
Does he proceed with a plan that he has openly said would fail?
How does he send men and women into battle pursuing a failed plan?
Does he resign?
I think he would have to resign, and if he does, you want to talk about a crisis in the Obama administration???
Even Ms. Couric is taking note.

The Buddhist monk arrived in Washington on Monday for a week of meetings with Congressional leaders, celebrity supporters and interest groups, but the president will not see him until after he has made his first visit to China next month.
This means that Obama will become the first president not to welcome the Nobel peace prize winner to the White House since the Dalai Lama began visiting Washington in 1991.
Clearly Obama is trying to be nice to the Chinese Communist Party in the hope that the Chinese will also be nice. Of course this idea that if you are nice to the Chinese Communist up front, they will be nice to you later is wrong on a multitude of levels. If you lower the bar on human rights the Chinese will just move it lower.
Not only is this another brilliant move by Obama, it's also another monumental flip-flop.
In April 2008, Obama was joined by Hillary Clinton, then his rival for the Democratic nomination and now his Secretary of State, in calling on George W Bush to boycott the Beijing Olympics opening ceremony in protest at the bloody repression of a popular uprising in Tibet.
At that time, Obama said: "If the Chinese do not take steps to help stop the genocide in Darfur and to respect the dignity, security, and human rights of the Tibetan people, then the President should boycott the opening ceremonies,"
I'm sure that right now thousands of Liberals are scrapping those "FREE TIBET" stickers from the bumpers of their Prius.

All along I was 100% sure the Chicago bid was a DONE DEAL. How could it not be a DONE DEAL?
First off, the First Lady along with Oprah flew to Copenhagen, where they made a weepy emotional plea to the committee. Then the BIG GUY personally makes a trip there, and makes another pitch for the Olympics. With all this 'theater' it has to be a DONE DEAL, right?
I mean, when heads of state make a trip, all the 'work' has been done behind the scenes, and the actual meetings are merely photo ops.
Can you imagine Nixon going to China and coming back with nothing?
Can you imagine Arafat and Sadat at Camp David and leaving with nothing?
When a US President meets with another head of state, they sign something, or agree on something! They don't just walk away empty handed.
What is obvious is that Obama thought he could just waltz into the IOC, do a little song and dance, and the IOC would just roll-over and give Chicago the games. Pssssssssssss............
Was this arrogance on parade, gigantic hubris, or just plain lack of preparation and negotiating skills?
Whatever it was, it is certainly a clear sign that these folks are in way over their heads, and the whole world, including our enemies know this.
When do those talks with Iran start? You know, the ones with no preconditions?
The “Center for American Progress” lead by John Podesta, a former Clinton Chief of Staff and senior Obama adviser, recommended in a report to the Obama administration that:
[T]he administration should consider a tax on consumption, such as a value-added tax [VAT] system similar to that in use in the European Union. Mr. Podesta suggested that its impact should be limited to protect lower-income people, who otherwise might be hit particularly hard.
“As progressives we need to debate the policy merits [of] a range of options, including designing a small and more progressive value-added tax,” Mr. Podesta said in a statement Tuesday.
The report, said the administration can’t rely on taxing richer Americans and companies to reduce the deficit to sustainable levels by 2014 because those groups would see 40% tax increases.
The Obama administration wants to stimulate consumer spending to revive the economy. Ok, good idea! But to achieve that, they propose a tax on consumption. Brilliant!!
I'm getting the sense that a shittier economy is the goal of this administration.

When asked about their trip to Copenhagen to lobby for Chicago's bid for the 2016 Olympics, First lady Michelle Obama vowed Monday to "take no prisoners"
"It's a battle -- we're going to win -- take no prisoners," the first lady said with a smile at a discussion with reporters in the White House State Dining Room....On the real war front, asked to "define victory in Afghanistan," Barack Obama said:
I'm always worried about using the word "victory" because, you know, it invokes this notion of Emperor Hirohito coming down and signing a surrender to MacArthur.
As if these comments aren't worrisome enough, I have to note that Emperor Hirohito didn't "come down" and surrendered to MacArthur, he sent Foreign Minister Mamoru Shigemitsu. Then again, as a Community Organizer I don't expect Obama to 'be up on history'
Oh, and by the way, is there any doubt whatsoever that there are a lot of friends in Chicago waiting to make a bunch of C H A N G E off of the Olympics?
Would the two Community Organizers be traveling to Copenhagen if Seattle or Dallas were bidding instead of Chicago?
UPDATE: And then there's THIS

President Obama and the leaders of France and Britain blasted Iran's construction of a previously unacknowledged uranium enrichment facility and demanded Friday that Tehran immediately fulfill its obligations under international law or risk the imposition of harsh new sanctions.
"Iran is breaking rules that all nations must follow," Obama said, detailing how the facility near Qom had been under construction for years without being disclosed, as required, to the International Atomic Energy Agency. "International law is not an empty promise."
PFFFFFT!!!! Did he say, Iran is breaking rules??
Is this guy serious?
How long have we been hearing about Iran enriching uranium, and what has anyone done about it? NOTHING! Now every leader of the free world is acting shocked and outraged at this, and are calling for an investigation and maybe some sanctions. Yeah, that will put an end to Iran's nuclear projects.
Unfortunately, the only solution to all this rests with Israel who is in the cross hairs of an Iranian nuclear devise. Will Obama give Israel the "green light' to after the Iranian facilities? If you're Israel do you believe a word he says? Can Israel depend on the US to defend any actions Israel might take? Would you?
Here is what Obama had to say. *yawn*

Poland in a dangerous "gray zone" between Western Europe and the old Soviet sphere.said he was concerned that Obama's new strategy leaves
Recent events in the region have rattled nerves throughout central and eastern Europe, a region controlled by Moscow during the Cold War, including the war last summer between Russia and Georgia and ongoing efforts by Russia to regain influence in Ukraine. A Russian cutoff of gas to Ukraine last winter left many Europeans without heat.
The scraped plan would have been "a major step in preventing various disturbing trends in our region of the world," Kaczynski said.
But that's ok, no need to worry. Secretary of Defense Robert Gates said he still sees a chance for Poles and Czechs to participate in the redesigned missile defense system.
See! the Obama administration is going to redesign a new missile system. You guys have nothing to worry about.

Now it is clearly obvious that ANY criticism of Obama is labeled by the LibDems as racist.
If a demonstration takes place criticizing Obama or his policies, the gathering we are told..... has racial undertones.
If a radio/TV show host bashes Obama, we are told that the host's comments are racially motivated.
When Clarence Thomas was getting crucified by LibDems, did conservatives shout RACISM? No. When Richard Steele is mocked by the MSM, do conservatives shout RACISM? No.
Commenting on the Joe Wilson incident, Jimmy Carter said: ''I think it's based on racism,'' Carter said. ''There is an inherent feeling among many in this country that an African-American should not be president.''
Sure Jimmy, except for the fact that the ones playing the race card are Democrats beginning with The Community Organizer in Chief.
Who was it that attacked Bill Clinton with racism during the primaries?
Who attacked Geraldine Ferraro with racism?
Who took a racist shot at Hillary?
Bottom line is that when ever you hear the words bigot, sexist, homophobes it's coming from LibDem lips. Racist is just the latest fashionable word in the LibDem arsenal.
Oh, and by the way, I'm still waiting for a LibDem to explain Sen. Robert Byrd to me.
Joe Wilson has been painted by the LibDems and the MSM as some unhinged nut. If you've watched him lately, he's obviously not.
Personally, I don't agree with what he did, but I understand his passion and the outburst.
I kinda like the guy!
UPDATE: In a world-class moment of manufactured outrage, The House has passed a resolution of disapproval of Wilson's action.
On a largely party-line vote, the House voted 240 to 179 to ratify a “resolution of disapproval” against Rep. Joe Wilson (R-S.C.) for interrupting Obama’s speech last week before a joint session of Congress. Just 12 Democrats opposed the resolution against Wilson, while seven Republicans supported the disapproval motion. Five Democrats voted “present,” rather than cast a yes or no vote.
During the hour-long debate, Wilson refused to apologize, saying his private phone call to White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel was sufficient because Obama himself said the matter was closed the day after his speech.
“It is clear to the American people that there are far more important issues than what we are dealing with now. . . . [Obama] graciously accepted my apology, and this issue is over,” Wilson said in brief remarks.

But the administration responded with a tersely worded letter indicating that they had healthcare reform under control."
Is anyone surprised that Obama has had no contact with Republicans on Health Care since April? I'm not.
First off, Obama, as always, is leading from the rear on Nationalized Health Care.
The ones that are doing the heavy lifting for him are the House & Senate Lib/Dems. They are the ones taking all the heat while Obama sits in the White House, or Martha's Vineyard, or Camp David waiting to see what direction to take.
Tonight Obama will give the majority of Americans a big F*CK YOU. He will take a full-tilt approach on the Government Option. Obama has nothing to lose by going for it all because if he fails he can always come back, over, and over again, and fight another day.
Will I be watching the Community Organizer in Chief tonight? Of course not! I know what he's going to say and.......................................... the US Open is on.
UPDATE: Today, The Community Organizer in Chief said:
"I'm open to new ideas," the president said in an interview Wednesday in which he previewed the themes of his speech. "We're not being rigid and ideological about this thing."
No, of course not!

The host commented about how the 'talk' will be positive and uplifting for the students, and parents are just plain jumping to conclusions by thinking this is going to be some type of national indoctrination. On the surface I tend to agree....................but then I give it some thought.
If one takes a look at public education over the last 30 years, it's easy to see that standards and academic achievements are in the toilet. It also can't be argued that private schools and home-schooling has flourished because of the total failure of public schools.
People can argue the reasons for this failure, but what can't be argued is that public schools have been the petri-dish of LiberalDemocrats and their social engineering experiments.
From banning prayer and the pledge of allegiance to making the now failed outcome-based education the ideal for years, public schools/unions have successfully clawed at the conservative fabric of American society.
For years we have been told that more money and more teachers are the solutions to the problems. But anyone that looks at the statistics sees that only 50 % of public school employees are teachers, funding per pupil has increased by over 220% in the last 25 years while public school academic scores continue to drop. Is it a wonder that parents have become skeptical about public education???
So now, after all of the failed programs, the continued lies, the blatant deceit, the President, the high-priest of everything LIBERAL, the epitome of a political animal, want to directly address all public school children. And you wonder why parents are rebelling???
What has happened here is that is the blink of an eye, parent have suddenly come to realized that public schooling AIN'T LOCAL. The PTA has been cast aside, and Mrs. Smith, Joey's 4rth grade teacher has been usurped by the COMMUNITY ORGANIZER IN THE WHITE HOUSE.
The America people are tolerant, trusting , and patient, but this time, much like a mother bear protecting her cubs..........................enough is enough.

CHRIS, WHAT HAPPENED TO YOUR JOURNALISTIC INTEGRITY?????
President Obama’s Address to Students Across America September 8, 2009 -
Part of me tells me that maybe the address will be about encouraging hard work, dedication, and the importance of education. If that is the message, then I applaud the President. But do we need a Presidential address for that?
The other part of me feels this is creepy. We have all heard about Obama's plans for national volunteers and his failed attempt to snitch on people opposed to his health-care program.
In the past we've witnessed dictators like Hitler, Mussolini, Franco, Mao, and Castro create 'youth movements' that served to indoctrinate the youth and silence opposing adults/parents. It happened, and it was effective.
Were I a parent, I would seriously consider keeping my child out of school on September 8 unless I had full prior knowledge of what the Presidential address was going to be about. I don't think I'm the only one thinking about that.
I don't subscribe to making Bush/Obama comparisons, but if this was Bush, thousands of public school/union teachers across the country would be proudly proclaiming how they were refusing the call to indoctrinate their students to the ravings of awful George Bush.
Think about it.

There has not been a lot of coverage of this. It happened back in July and is only now winding its way through the federal system.
Barack Obama and his administration are about to significantly drive up the costs of federal building construction. In an incredible reach of power, The Office of Management and Budget has directed that any federal construction over $25 million benefit unions.
The order would make all federal construction projects 10-20% more expensive by requiring all contractors to either use union workers and work rules to their employees. Contractors would also be required to make contributions to union pension funds and other union programs that non-union workers will never benefit from.
This will hugely drive up the cost of construction of federal buildings and line the pockets of unions without even having union workers involved in the projects. Statistics shows that only 15.6% of private construction workers in America belong to unions. In other words, 8 out of 10 construction workers in America will be legally denied the right to work on federal building projects.Just what the doctor ordered in a down economy.
There is nothing more important than protecting the identities of CIA officers. So I need everybody to be clear: We will protect your identities and your security as you vigorously pursue your missions.This was brought on by the Valerie Plame incident, and it seemed like the President was mending fences with the CIA while making perfect sense about the importance of keeping CIA identities secret.
It now appears that with the upcomming Dept. of Justice investigation, a whole lot of names of CIA personnel are going to become public.
Last year, for instance, the New York Times published the name of a CIA officer who interrogated 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed. This was despite the protests of the officer and the CIA that to identify him would "put him at risk of retaliation from terrorists or harassment from critics of the agency," Where was the uproar from the privacy advocates??
Last Friday, the Washington Post reported that the Justice Department is looking into allegations that military defense attorneys for top al Qaeda detainees had shown their clients photographs of CIA officers and contractors.
The pictures, some of which were "taken surreptitiously outside [the CIA officers'] homes," were gathered by an outfit called the John Adams Project. The Project seeks to identify the interrogators to serve as witnesses if and when their clients are tried in federal court or by military commissions. "We are confident that no laws or regulations have been broken," ACLU executive director Anthony Romero told the Post.
WHAT!!!!!! No laws or regulations were broken? Go ask Scooter Libby.
Please Mr. President, go ahead and start investigating and prosecuting folks at the CIA for only doing their job of keeping Americans safe. That should play well in Peoria.

London: Billionaire investor George Soros bought an $811 million stake in Petroleo Brasileiro (Petrobras) in the second quarter, making the Brazilian state-controlled oil company his investment fund’s largest holding.
August 20, 2009
RIO DE JANEIRO — Brazil, long proud of its push to develop renewable energy and wean itself off oil, has a bad case of fossil-fuel fever. An enormous offshore field in territorial waters discovered by national oil company Petrobras, — the biggest Western Hemisphere oil discovery in 30 years — has Brazilians saying, "Drill, baby, drill,"
August 21, 2009
The Obama administration is going to lend billions of dollars to Brazil’s state-owned oil company, Petrobras, to finance exploration of the huge offshore discovery in Brazil’s Tupi oil field in the Santos Basin near Rio de Janeiro. Brazil’s planning minister confirmed that White House National Security Adviser James Jones met this month with Brazilian officials to talk about the loan.
The U.S. Export-Import Bank tells us it has issued a “preliminary commitment” letter to Petrobras in the amount of $2 billion and has discussed with Brazil the possibility of increasing that amount. Ex-Im Bank says it has not decided whether the money will come in the form of a direct loan or loan guarantees.
For this administration to offer billions in loans to a foreign oil company is an insult to US tax payers and makes a mockery of many Obama talking points. First, why does Petrobas need loan guarantees to pursue its exploration? Petrobras, is a very large, and rich corporation, which should have the resources to get to the oil on its own. Obama, who has ripped American corporations for their supposed subsidies in American tax policy, now wants to use our empty Treasury to give cash to a Brazilian oil company. A Brazilian oil company where George Soros is heavily invested.
Next, Obama keeps insisting that we cut back on our use of fossil fuels. He and his allies in Congress have blocked exploration of American oil fields off both shores for decades, and Obama insists that we would only keep enabling our oil addiction if we started drilling off of our own coasts. Yet he has no trouble committing TWO BILLION of our money for Brazil to drill off its own coast.
Oh yeah, Obama did institute the Cash For Clunkers program in order to make us less dependent on oil, and is pushing American to drive electric midget cars while wearing solar panels on our asses and wind propellers on our heads. Sorry, what was I thinking.

In what is probably the most blatant evidence of creating 'news' MSNBC injects race into the health care debate along with the notion that Obama, the first black President, is at risk of being assassinated by some deranged (white) wacko.
What MSNBC chose to not show their audience is that the gun totting person at the rally was black.
The guy was at the rally basically supporting the Second Amendment and personal right/freedoms. MSNBC spins it as: Obama the first black President, is in danger of being shot by gun-totting white hillbillies.

That is our Secretary of State Hillary Clinton comparing the 2 bit piece of crap country, Nigeria, to the United States.
Yes sir! This apologizing/United States is evil bunch is really cleaning up our international image!
UPDATE: Hillary will today head to Liberia to show support for female President Ellen Sirleaf
The visit is being touted as A Women Power visit. Nice!
I wonder if Winnie Mandela will be invited? Maybe she'll bring some of her jewelry.

I hope it doesn't end like this or 30 years from now they'll be talking about the Great Beer War of 2009
Conan O’Brien put it best: “If this works out, the president is going to have Netanyahu and Ahmadinejad over for Jägerbombs.”

In reading those numbers, what sticks out is the 40% that STRONGLY DISSAPROVE. 40%!
During the race, Obama was sold as the non-partisan/new tone candidate. The one that would bring all people together, not tear them apart.
It seems that now Obama is clearly seen as a polarizing figure. A VERY POLARIZING FIGURE!

Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama got more than an education when he attended Harvard Law School in the late 1980s. He also got a healthy stack of parking tickets, most of which he never paid.
The Illinois Senator shelled out $375 in January – two weeks before he officially launched his presidential campaign – to finally pay for 15 outstanding parking tickets and their associated late fees.
Obama received 17 parking tickets in Cambridge between 1988 and 1991, mostly for parking in a bus stop, parking without a resident permit and failing to pay the meter, records from the Cambridge Traffic, Parking and Transportation office show.
He incurred $140 in fines and $260 in late fees in Cambridge in all, but he paid $25 for two of the tickets in February 1990.
Now tell me again who acted stupidly....................
UPDATE: The cops are pissed at the community organizer!

“There are some who’ve forgotten why we have a military. It’s not to promote war; it’s to be prepared for peace.” Ronald Reagan 1984
Obama and Democrats were quick to point out that this resulted in a savings of 1.75 billion dollars.
Sounds like a lot, no?
NO, it's not! 1.75 billion amounts to one third of one percent of the military budget for 2010.
There was no mention of the number of jobs lost at Lockheed/Boeing and supporting manufacturers.

I call this a misstep because Obama campaigned and also promised to quickly close Guantanamo after taking office while having no idea about how to go about doing it.
This is what some people would call "writing checks your ass can't cash"

The administration's annual midsummer budget update is sure to show higher deficits and unemployment and slower growth than projected in President Barack Obama's budget in February and update in May, and that could complicate his efforts to get his signature health care and global-warming proposals through Congress.
The release of the update - usually scheduled for mid-July - has been put off until the middle of next month, giving rise to speculation the White House is delaying the bad news at least until Congress leaves town on its August 7 summer recess.
The administration is pressing for votes before then on its $1 trillion health care initiative, which lawmakers are arguing over how to finance.
"Instead of a dream, this routine report could be a nightmare," Tony Fratto, a former Treasury Department official and White House spokesman under President George W. Bush, said of the delayed budget update. "There are some things that can't be escaped."
Allow me to tell you what this means:
1. Don't trust anything that comes out of this administration.
2. Don't trust anything this administration has told you in the past.
3. This administration could care less about the long-range negative effects of their plans.
4. This administration is only concerned with fooling the American public about the economic destruction they are committing.

In a release touting an agreement between Obama and President Dmitry Medvedev over how to craft a follow-up to the START arms reduction treaty, the White House claimed the document had been signed by one "Barak Obama."
Someone needs to check his birth certificate for the right spelling. Oh, never mind.

Well if it's all about jobs, why does the bill contain a clause that says:
Workers who lose their jobs if the pending climate change legislation becomes law could get a weekly paycheck for up to three years, subsidies to find new work and other generous benefits -- all courtesy of Uncle Sam -- under a little-noticed provision of the bill.
Adversely affected employees in oil, coal and other fossil-fuel sector jobs would qualify for a weekly check worth 70 percent of their current salary for up to three years. In addition, they would get $1,500 for job-search assistance and $1,500 for moving expenses from the bill's "climate change worker adjustment assistance" program, which is expected to cost $4.2 billion from 2011 to 2019.
This bill isn't about jobs, it's about JOBS LOST!!!

For Gods sake, what is the entire Jackson family doing?
For years, everyone has known that Michael Jackson was a freak, yet his family did nothing while watching his life go down the toilet. Now that he's dead, we see them weeping and mourning as if this whole thing came as a shock. PLEEEASE!
I wonder what the price of admission will be to see Michael Jackson in a glass coffin?
Please, by all means, let the freakness continue!
