What a Bunch of…

Yahoo’s is the answer. I have a quandary. I don’t want to use Google for web searches because of their overt hypocrisy of supporting Obama, cow-towing to China and other tyrannical nations, and their “official” spin that they are somehow all about freedom for individuals. Out of habit I have tended to use Yahoo for my searches, but these folks are mind-numbingly (I don’t think that is a word) bad. I posted a “Sweet Sixteen” of Yahoo’s banners a while back so I am never surprised, but today’s banner was beyond the pale.

Don’t Piss On My Leg…

…and tell me it’s raining!

Unemployment:   If you listen to the White House and the mainstream media puppets you’ll think unemployment is trending down and at 8 percent as of February 2012.  Too bad the numbers are cooked (FYI all administrations cook) and are quite misleading…okay not “misleading” but flat out lies.  Gallup offers real unemployment numbers;

REAL UNEMPLOYMENT IS 19.0 PERCENT

If you want to compare the numbers the White House uses then Gallup determined that rate to be 9.0 percent;

Parse-imony – Vouchers

In “Parse-imony” I break down current news stories with my pithy, running commentary…

First the headline:

Poll: Most Pennsylvanians oppose school vouchers

Nearly two-thirds of Pennsylvanians oppose creating a voucher system that would use tax dollars to pay private-school tuition, according to a public opinion poll released yesterday.  [Sounds bad for voucher proponents]

The poll, commissioned by a coalition of groups opposed to school vouchers [What are the chances that a poll commissioned by a “coalition” of groups opposed to vouchers will get these results?], was conducted by Terry Madonna Opinion Research. Madonna is a political science professor at Franklin & Marshall College in Lancaster County.

Herding Cats

Now with over eighteen months in the White House the Obama Regime is having to come to grips with ruling versus running.  Even though he still seems to be in campaign mode, Obama has to be coming to the realization that being the President of the United States is not anything like community organizing.  He can no longer say anything he wants or make conflicting promises.  He is still doing it, but citizens have expectations that are not being met.

Obamacare…The Beginning!

In a show of inordinate CLASS President Barack Hussein Obama mocked those of us who opposed his health care bill:

“You have to love some of the pundits in Washington.  Every day since I signed reform into law, there’s another poll or headline that says ‘Nation still divided on health reform. No great surge in public support.’ Well, yeah. It’s only been a week!”

So what happened the first week when United States corporations were required by Securities and Exchange Commission Rules to restate earnings based on the new “pro-business” Democrat Care program.

That Guy

If you have worked anywhere you have probably run into that guy (or girl) sometime in your career.  Terry was the name (name changed to protect the innocent) of “that guy” at one of my recent jobs.  I would describe him as young, well dressed, very good looking, very personable, great to talk to, funny, a good listener, and someone everybody likes.  Terry started in our sales department.
