White House Access
In an unprecedented move the Obama White House has decided to become even more transparent than previously.Â Long considered by President Obama to be the most open administration ever he has now taken steps to be even more accessible to the White House Press Corps.Â Press Secretary Jay Carney announced the following measures late Friday night:
- Press photographers will still not be allowed into most events to take photographs, but the White House Ministry of Communication will make additional photographs available upon written request and seven dayâ€™s notice unless â€œexecutive privilegeâ€ applies.
Update – Fair Trial
Surprise surprise the jury found George Zimmerman NOT GUILTY.Â I am not one of the pundits who’ll lament the trajedy that a young man lost his life and another man’s life is ruined.Â That’s been said ad nauseum over the past 24 hours.Â I think the next 12 months are going to be interesting as the now innocent Zimmerman goes after the media and celebrities who have slandered him.Â The folks who have called for his death.Â Those who still “tweet” that justice was not served.Â Neither celebrities, sports “stars,” nor the media has a right to defame George Zimmerman and when they did he has a right to take them to court.Â He certainly shares some of the blame for what happened that night, but he shouldn’t have been portrayed as a public enemy.
There have been lots and lots of discussions and panels offering advice to Republicans regarding how to improve their brand. Some of the best â€œadviceâ€ comes from liberals who have absolutely NO desire to see Republicanâ€™s improve their lot with the electorate. It has been funny to me to watch these serious-faced pundits discuss Republicans as if they really wanted them to succeed. One only has to listen to their advice to know the truth behind their masks. They lie!
Demand That They Shut Up
IÂ am not sure who I dislike more, the main-stream media who are supposed to keep big government in check or the Hollyweirdos who are just supposed to entertain us yet love to preach to us about our behavior.Â They are both hypocrites and in my mind dangerous to society as they use their soapbox to manipulate the underinformed…hence the last election.Â These celebrities cannot help but butt into current events and thoughtfully tell us how society should behave.
Some ingenious soul put this video together showing the angelic celebrities juxtaposed with some of their movie/television work.Â Hypocrites all!
You gotta love the chutzpah of FOO (friend of Obama) Warren Buffet who again called for increased INCOME taxes on the rich like him.Â He is certainly the media darling for his continued support of Obama and was amply rewarded when friend Obama nixed the Keystone XL Pipeline.Â It seems that now all that oil has to be hauled by rail;
“Whatever people bring to us, weâ€™re ready to haul,â€ Krista York-Wooley, a spokeswoman for Burlington Northern, a unit of Buffettâ€™s Omaha, Nebraska-based Berkshire Hathaway Inc. (BRK/A), said in an interview. If Keystone XL â€œdoesnâ€™t happen, weâ€™re here to haul.â€
The REAL Vietnam History Lesson
General VoNguyen Giap:Â General Giap was a brilliant, highly respected leader of the North Vietnam military. The following quote is from his memoirs currently found in the Vietnam war memorial in Hanoi :
‘What we still don’t understand is why you Americans stopped the bombing of Hanoi . You had us on the ropes. If you had pressed us a little harder, just for another day or two, we were ready to surrender! It was the same at the battle of TET. You defeated us!Â We knew it, and we thought you knew it.Â But we were elated to notice your media was helping us. They were causing more disruption in America than we could in the battlefields. We were ready to surrender. You had won!’Â
Separated At Birth – Candy/Rosie
Rosey the Robot Maid:Â RosieÂ is a humanoid robot fictional character in The Jetsons animated television series of the 1960s. She is the Jetson’s maid and housekeeper and is usuallyÂ depicted wearing a frilly apron.Â Her torso is mounted atop a single leg and she rolls about on a set of caster wheels.Â She frequently calls George Jetson “Mr. J”.Â Rosey was an old demonstrator model hired by the Jetson family from U-RENT A MAID. In the episode “Rosey the Robot”, her model number is revealed as XB-500.Â Rosey is modeled after Hazel from the TV show Hazel, a sitcom featuring Shirley Booth as a similar maid character.
Shall Not Be Infringed
“A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”
About a year ago there was a tragedy near where I live.Â A mentally disturbed man started shooting at the psychiatric hospital killing a young man.Â The tragedy hit home even more when it was discovered that his sister had also been murdered a year earlier.Â She was also shot.Â The family recently held an event to raise money “to prevent gun violence.”Â That is understandable, but I couldn’t help but wonder why just “gun violence?”Â Why not all violence?Â Why not try to stamp out violent people?Â Why not try to have psychotics taken off of the streets?Â It may sound trite, but guns don’t kill people…people kill people.Â Do you doubt that a murderer will no longer murder if they cannot get a pistol?
Tax Cuts Cost More!
GOP tax cut plan to cost $28B more than Demsâ€™ pitch
This headline should alternately make your head explode, make you cry, or piss you off.Â Published by the Washington Post (Obama Post) last Thursday (click on the headline to be directed to the full article) it fallaciously attempts toÂ paint the “Dem’s” as cost cutters because, I guess, their tax plan “costs” less.Â
ALL POLITICIANS, LAME STREAM MEDIA ELITISTS, LIBERALS, RINOS, OTHER STUPID PEOPLE should note that LETTING US KEEP THE MONEY THAT WE HAVE LEGITIMATELY EARNED SHOULD NOT BE CONSIDERED A FREAKIN COST!Â
