Townhall health care debates dominated the news last week, with Democrats outraged
that Joe Six-Pack is actually demanding answers - answers that they don't have.
Despite outspending critics
by a margin of 3 to 1, Americans still
aren't buying what the left is selling. For the first time in over two years of
polling, voters trust Republicans slightly more
than Democrats on the handling
of the issue of health care. Duh. More details in Elite Meltdown.
An African-American man from Mississippi, trying to paint (racist) white supremacists
as the villains in the health care debate, has admitted posing as a white supremacist
to send a death threat across
state lines by Facebook. What a state of affairs - when you actually have to manufacture
racism. Good thing the left has banned shame.
And video has surfaced
showing how left-wing group ACORN has teamed up with local police in an effort to
keep Americans from talking to each other (using the threat of law) as they wait
in line at a townhall meeting. This is scary stuff.
Glenn Beck's program on Fox News is generating outrage on the left. An organized
campaign (with ties to Obama) has succeeded in getting 3 liberal sponsors of the
show to withdraw their ads. But Glenn Beck fans
are fighting back
. Stay tuned.
Speaking of media, looks like CNN can't stand the heat and has decided to ban radio talk show hosts
from appearing on CNN. Oh, pooh:)
Two days after a DNA test revealed
former VP candidate John Edwards to be
the father of his mistress Rielle Hunter's baby, Edwards bravely admitted it. Quel
Courage! Did I mention Edwards is a Democrat?
The bad news:
The percentage of people who claim no religion has nearly doubled
since 1990. Meanwhile, the percentage
of Christians is on the decline, according to a new study.
The good news:
Thus far in 2009, 40% of Americans
interviewed in national Gallup Poll surveys
describe their political views as conservative.
PETA's "McCruelty Campaign" has ruffled the feathers of moms
and dads in Albany who say they don't want their kids exposed to any throat-slitting
chickens or pictures of slaughtered poultry.
PETA's McCruelty campaign
What week would be complete without a public Mea Culpa? This week's came from the
Senate Committee on Indian Affairs who apologized
"on behalf of American people" to all Indian
tribes for the mistreatment and violence by American citizens. Just in case anyone
forgot what an evil country the US is, has been, and always will be.
JetBlue Airways will offer an "all-you-can-jet"
pass for $599 in which passengers can
book an unlimited amount of flights within a one-month span.
California could get nine House seats it doesn't constitutionally rate because illegal
aliens will be counted in 2010, concluded an opinion piece
in The Wall Street Journal.
A Scottish soldier has been praised for making the longest recorded kill
in Afghanistan after shooting a top
Taliban fighter from almost a mile away.
Need a job? You might want to head to N. Dakota - it has the country’s lowest unemployment
rate at 4.2 percent, a budget surplus of $1.2 billion and more than 9,000 unfilled
Last, but not least, Obama is preparing to fire a batch of US attorneys. This, as his
attorney general moves closer to a formal investigation of Bush - for doing the
same thing. Aargh!
RIGHT BIAS IDIOT AWARDS:
RightBias has had to recall its IDIOT AWARDS, due to, well, so many liberals acting
so incredibly stupidly. This week's winner is Senator Debbie Stabenow (D., Mich)
who claimed "Climate change is very real."
As evidence, she stated,
"Global warming creates volatility. I feel it when I'm flying." Words fail...
Yale University gets our runner-up award in yet another bow to radical Islam. Yale
refusing to publish cartoons
and images of the Prophet Muhammad in a new
book about those very pictures. My question is, how do you publish a book about
Muslim cartoons without the Muslim cartoons? Gee, if only I had a PhD...
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has repeatedly called the health care dissenters
. Here's hoping his idiotic attempt to create
a catchy soundbite will follow him forever.
This week, I'll leave you with a lovely, soothing site dedicated to showing what
a great country we live in. My Beautiful America. Just in case you forgot.
Till next week, keep smiling,
