Meanwhile, it appears no 'national conversation' will occur on Sonia Sotomayor's
nomination to the Supreme Court. Despite strong evidence of her intention to rule
by emotion instead of law, Dems inform us that her nomination is a done deal. The
GOP is, again, MIA.
Undeterred, our elected officials continue massive spending plans. Just today, they
committed an additional $30.1 billion
of our money to help (the unions)
General Motors go bankrupt. The government is assuming a 70% ownership interest.
Inquiring minds want to know if this is constitutional.
The new GM car
GM plans to reopen a shuttered U.S. factory to build subcompact cars
that will be
the smallest vehicles GM
has ever produced here in
America. No word yet on safety tests to determine what will happen when one of these
bugs gets in the way of an eighteen wheeler.
GOVERNMENT AT WORK:
Looks like ACORN, under indictment for voter fraud, will be among several organizations
helping out with
the 2010 census.
Speaking of voter fraud, this week the Obama Justice Department dropped charges
against three Black Panthers.
Apparently they felt the video of those hoods holding weapons and threatening people
at a voting booth last year wasn't important enough to warrant their attention.
The Obama administration is siding with the Saudi royal family to defeat a long-running
lawsuit seeking to hold it liable for the Sept.11, 2001, attacks. In a further act
of subservience, Obama will offer his "personal commitment"
to bridge US differences with Muslims
in his long-awaited speech to the Islamic world next week in Egypt.
Continuing the trend of putting America last, the State Department just provided
the UN with proposed text for a new global warming treaty that would require the
U. S. to comply with stricter carbon emissions standards
than most other countries
in the world.
On the economic front, it appears that states with the highest unemployment rates
have received comparatively few
of the $4 billion in stimulus fund contracts awarded by government agencies. Welcome
to crony capitalism.
Speaking of crony capitalism, there appears to be growing evidence that the Chrysler
dealerships that were chosen for closing
had a history of donating to the GOP.
Apparently they didn't know what side their bread was buttered on.
So far in May, Barack Obama has averaged 65% job approval.
Obama's average exceeds those of the three
most recent presidents -- George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton, and George W. Bush. Aargh.
Levi Strauss & Co. has come out with a new marketing scheme
that may dupe consumers who buy their
products into displaying support for same-sex "marriage."
On the left coast, an openly gay man was voted prom queen
at Los Angeles' Fairfax High School.
Meanwhile, Pastor David Jones and his wife have been told that they cannot invite
friends to their Calif. home for a bible study, unless they are willing to pay tens of thousands of dollars
to San Diego County for
Instead of seeing older workers staying on the job longer as the economy has worsened,
the Social Security system is reporting a major surge in early retirement
claims that could have implications
for the financial security of millions of baby boomers.
A Connecticut school district representing two towns is considering a proposal to close schools
on two Muslim holidays
This smiling dude is the winner of the all time deadbeat dad award.
Desmond Hatchett, 29, has fathered 21
children with 11 different women. His brood came to light after authorities in Tennessee
took him to court for non-payment of child support. Lest you forget, you and I are
the ones paying for that smile on his face. Am I the only one who thinks this guy
should have a taxpayer-funded vasectomy?
The founder of the homosexual activist group GLSEN has been handed a federal appointment
where he will be responsible
for overseeing "safety" in the nation's public schools. And last, but not least,
last week the U.S. Embassy in Iraq held a
"Gay Pride Theme Party"
at a pub called Baghdaddy's. Maybe they forgot they
were in a Muslim country.
No more bad hair days?
Good news for balding guys. Japanese scientists have identified
a gene in mice that is linked to early hair loss. Translation: Pretty soon men
won't have to suffer the indignity of hair plugs and women won't have to cringe
at bad combovers.
There is a bit of heartwarming news out there. Check out this 7 year-old singing the National Anthem
. The singer was born autistic
and didn't speak a word till she was three.
Another miracle as 3-year-old girl who fell into a coma after
getting meningitis stunned her mother when she woke up singing the Abba hit “Mamma Mia.”
A British husband and wife who say a little arguing and a "happy outlook" keep them
together just celebrated their 81st wedding anniversary. Whoa.
IDIOT OF THE WEEK AWARD:
The winner of this week's Idiot award
goes, hands down, to Obama's Energy Secretary,
Steven Chu. He has come up with the bright idea to paint the world white in order
to avert climate catastrophe. Getting scared yet?
Before I sign off, I'll leave you with some food for thought. Here is an article
that appeared in Russian newspaper Pravda,
American Capitalism Gone With A Whimper
. Scary stuff.
Till next week, try to keep smiling. I predict the Democrats
will soon collapse under their own weight.
