The Americans With No Abilities Act
President Barack Obama and the Democratic Senate are considering sweeping legislation that will provide new benefits for many Americans. The Americans With No Abilities Act is being hailed as a major legislative goal by advocates of the millions of Americans who lack any real skills or ambition.
“Roughly 50 percent of Americans do not possess the competence and drive necessary to carve out a meaningful role for themselves in society,” said California Sen. Barbara Boxer. “We can no longer stand by and allow People of Inability (POI) to be ridiculed and passed over. With this legislation, employers will no longer be able to grant special favors to a small group of workers, simply because they have some idea of what they are doing.”
I am going to shock you…
- Politicians lie!
- The main stream (old media) covers for them…at least the Demoncrats.
Brief 1: July’s jobs report came out and Obama hit the stump bragging about how many private sector jobs were created that month. Apparently we are heading in the right direction;
“That means that we’ve now created 4.5 million new jobs over the last 29 months, and 1.1 million new jobs so far this year. Those are our neighbors and family members finding work and the security that comes with work.”
Geri: Geri is a popular Pixar character thrust on the international scene after his appearance after the blockbuster Toy Story movie. The elderly Geri plays a game of chess against himself becoming each of the players by moving to the other side of board. He seems to change personalities depending on which side he sits. At a point late in the game the “nice” Geri feigns a heart attack to distract the “bad” Geri and literally turns the board on his opponent. Realizing that he is beaten the bad Geri hands over the prize – his false teeth. Sadly there is only one Geri and he has been playing alone at the chess board.
A number of years ago illusionist, David Copperfield, made the Statue of Liberty vanish. Makine a 300+ feet tall statue that weighs 225 tons made his earlier feats pale in comparison. Unfortunately for Copperfield and his fellow illusionists one of their kind had a popular television show exposing their secrets. Obviously Copperfield was not able to make Lady Liberty disappear, however, the main stream media has taken illusion to a whole new level.
Now this could only happen to a guy like me
And so I say to each of you most gratefully
And only happen in a town like this
As I throw each one of you a kiss
This is my kind of town, Chicago is
Sometimes you find the perfect image to illustrate your post.
Chicago is having a pretty good year if you follow the old adage that all press is good press. Even with “bad” press you are still in the news. The Blackhawks made it to the Stanley Cup Finals. Their junior member of the Senate is now the President of the United States and many of Chicago’s operatives are now employed by the White House.
As I was watching and listening to the debate over Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s comments about President Obama it reminded me of a nature show that I recently saw. Democrats are falling all over themselves to come to the aid of a beleaguered Reid. Both white and black Democrats are hitting the talk shows and circling to defend Reid. This behavior mimics the tactics used by the musk oxen to defend their young.
It seems like the Republicans have failed to stop the Obamacare bill from making its way to the President’s desk to sign sometime early next year. In a rare occurrence, the Democrats have not been able to peel off one RINO from the Republican party enabling them to call this a bipartisan bill. Maybe that is because Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has written the legislation in a secret chamber somewhere in Washington. His amendment was only released to the Senate after he completed the bribes to Nebraska Senator Ben Nelson. The Wall Street Journal calls this a “Change That Nobody Believes In.”
Pittsburgh Penguins fans have been treated to a local series about the team’s players where they are interviewed and it is called “In Their Own Words.” Hockey is my favorite spectator sport because of the speed and action in the games. The greatest about hockey, however, is the players. I cannot speak for other teams, but hockey players are the nicest guys. You can learn a great deal about a person by what they say in unscripted moments (i.e. without a teleprompter).
Has anybody here seen our old friend Harry?
Can you tell me where he’s gone?
He screwed a lot of people,
But it seems the pols. they hide now.
You know, I just looked around and he’s gone.
Anybody here seen our old friend Nancy?
Can you tell me where she’s gone?
She ticked off the CIA,
But it seems she just up and left town.
I just looked around and she’s gone.
