RIP Mary Jo Kopechne

July 20, 2009

Last week marked several milestones:
 
The 40 year anniversary of man walking on the moon and the passing of broadcaster Walter Cronkite at the age of 92. Cronkite used his position as 'the most trusted man in America' to "guide America to defeat in Vietnam". Cronkite's epitaph includes being the man who made liberal media bias acceptable - by reporting the decisive American victory, the Vietnam Tet Offensive, as a stalemate.
 
Sunday also marked the 40 year anniversary of the death of Mary Jo Kopechne. Many Americans remain totally unaware that this young girl was left to drown after Senator Ted Kennedy drove them both off a bridge in Chappaquiddick on July 19, 1969. RIP.
 
Of necessity, RightBias has had to bring back the:


RIGHT BIAS IDIOT AWARDS:
 
This week's Idiot Award goes to VP Joe Biden who, with a straight face, announced that "we have to go spend money to keep from going bankrupt." For the first time I find myself concerned for Obama's health.
 
A close runner-up is top economic advisor Larry Summers, who stated that America's economic free-fall has ended. Why? Because the number of people searching for the term “economic depression” on Google is down to normal levels.

GOVERNMENT AT WORK:
 
The battle continues on revamping our nation's health care. Though 82% of Americans are happy with their health care, the Obama administration is branding it, you guessed it, a 'crisis', in dire need of a government fix. The proposed fix includes making private insurance illegal, making vaccines mandatory (through home health visits) and slapping a fine on anyone who doesn't join. Of course, Congress will be exempt and continue to enjoy a benefit system not available to the rest of us peons.
 
Oh, and Dems want a $5.4% tax increase on 'the rich' in order to pay for it, ignoring the fact that more than a million small business owners and about two-thirds of the profits earned by U.S. small businesses would be hit by the income tax increase on the "rich".
 
The U.S. government rang up a $94.32 billion budget deficit in June, a record for the month.
 
In their zeal to protect their members from politically hazardous votes on issues such as gay marriage and gun control, House Democrats are taking extraordinary steps to muzzle Republicans. Including rejecting an amendment to audit the Federal Reserve and a bill banning the misnamed Fairness Doctrine.
 
Unemployment topped 10 percent in 15 states and the District of Columbia last month.
 
Texas' unemployment fund will run dry this week. And California is still handing out IOU's but thousands of low-income Coloradans reliant on public assistance could get a free cellphone under a plan before the state Public Utilities Commission.

Its not all bad news. Flying under the radar: The Tenth Amendment Movement Is Gaining Steam. Cool jeans.
 
A new congressional report has come out, confirming what most conservatives already know - that the government caused the housing crisis. You heard it here first, I bet.


CULTURE:
 
A jumbo-sized road sign claiming that civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr. was a Republican has stirred a religious and political fight in Houston, where a church leader is trying to draw black voters into the GOP.
 
A group committed to establishing an international Islamic empire and reportedly linked to Al Qaeda is stepping up its Western recruitment efforts by holding its first official conference in the U.S. Ah, if only our famed tolerance extended to conservatives also.
 
Couples who shack up before tying the knot are more likely to get divorced than their counterparts who don't move in together until marriage, a new study suggests
 
A new study shows that the human fetus displays short-term memory from at least 30 weeks gestation - or about two months before they are born.

A Missouri car dealer has taken a novel approach to combating the fall in US vehicle sales by offering a free Kalashnikov assault rifle with every truck, whether new or used.
 
OF INTEREST:
 
Remember Filegate? Well, its over. A federal judge has thrown out a 13-year-old lawsuit against Hillary Rodham Clinton that involved the White House's mis-handling of FBI background records.


World's cheapest car goes on sale in India

The world's cheapest car has just gone on sale in India.
 
The United Nations has called for a return to state-led "industrial policy" for poorer countries in what amounts to a rejection of the free-market thinking (capitalism) that has dominated global institutions for the last 30 years.
 
A new organization called the Alliance for Bonded Term Limits (ABTL) has formed to explore a process that could put term limits into effect without having to pass term limit legislation. Their plan is to support candidates who will voluntarily bond their promises of limited tenure in office by use of their personal assets - as in 'putting their money where their mouths are'. Whoa, baby.
 
Supporters of a case that disputes the legitimacy of Obama's citizenship claimed a victory last week when a U.S. District Judge told them to fix their paperwork and that he would listen to the merits of their case.

Henry Allingham, the world's oldest man and the oldest surviving British veteran from World War I, has died at the age of 113
 
Ford, the only car company not receiving a government bailout, has just released this most amazing commercial. A very moving tribute to our returning soldiers.
 
OurCountryPac.org has just released a great ad that seeks to alert Americans about the agenda and tactics of the Obama administration. And last, but not least, conservative comedian Steven Crowder has released a great video showing what Canadian health care is like. Kudos.


Till next week - keep smiling,
