As the old media indulged in 24/7 coverage of the death of Sen. Edward Kennedy, the left indulged its propensity for airbrushing history, with Obama dubbing Kennedy 'a kind and tender hero.'

Nary a mention of Mary Jo Kopechne, Kennedy's cheating scandal, his alcoholic behavior, his collaboration with the Soviets or Kennedy's disgraceful treatment of women. I guess holding liberal views excuses a plethora of (what used to be known as) sins. While the media was engaged in Kennedy hosanas, a bunch of news flew:
 
UNDER THE RADAR:
 
New Mexico Gov Bill Richardson became the latest ethically challenged Dem to join the skating Olympics. For a year, federal investigators have been looking into the details of Bill Richardson doling out state bond deals to campaign donors. He won't be criminally charged. I'm shocked.
 
Neither, apparently, will head of the tax writing committee Charlie Rangel, even though he failed to report as much as $1.3 million in outside income on financial-disclosure forms he filed between 2002 and 2006. He also somehow forgot to pay taxes on two plots of land he has in New Jersey. I guess Edwards was right - there really are two Americas.
 
More under reported news comes to light: Two truck bombers who killed 95 people in devastating attacks on the Iraqi finance and foreign ministries were recently released from US custody. Looks like bleeding hearts beget more bleeding hearts.
 
Did You Know? - The president signed into law a measure in April that designated Sept. 11 as a National Day of Service.

GOVERNMENT AT WORK:
 
The government has launched Census in Schools, an all-out campaign targeting superintendents, principals, teachers, students and, indirectly, parents.
 
A bill sponsored by Democrats in Congress would make several U.S. inspectors general currently appointed by federal agency heads presidential appointees instead. Translation: Obama wants to appoint his own whistle blowers.
 
CNET has obtained a copy of the draft of S.773 (excerpt), which appears to permit the president to seize temporary control of private-sector networks during a so-called cyber security emergency. Imagine.... 
 
Here comes the next clunkers program. The federal government is making (our) money available to states so consumers could get rebates of $50 to $200 for new, more energy-efficient appliances later this year in a so-called "cash for appliances" program.

Oh, the final tally for the 'Cash for Clunkers' program: 690,114 car sales were generated at a cost of $2.9 billion of our tax dollars. And many buyers are just now realizing that they have to pay taxes on their rebate. Ouch
 
In their regular Friday evening news dump, Obama informed America that the US economy will shrink far more than expected this year and will rebound much more slowly than forecast after that, and its still Bush's fault. Not only that, but reports by the White House and the CBO are expected to show the government will spend a record $1.6 trillion more than it collects this year.

CULTURE:
 
ABC and NBC have refused to run a national ad critical of Obama's health care 'reform.' 



Two adult children are suing their biological mother for intentional and negligent infliction of emotional distress that they say occurred over a period of more than 14
years.

In an effort to reduce the spread of HIV, public health officials are considering the promotion of “universal circumcision” for all baby boys born in the U.S. Here's a thought - how about we just quit promoting homosexuality?

The prospect of a human baby with three biological parents has moved closer after scientists created monkeys using a technique that one day could stop children from inheriting severe genetic diseases.
 
The war on capitalism continues, with the Venice film festival hyping Michael Moore's documentary on the U.S. economic meltdown.
 
SpacebookSpaceBook: first duel screen laptop
OF INTEREST:
 
The world's first truly dual-screen laptop, which will allow computer users to multi-task while on the move, is due to go on sale by the end of the year.
 
A new web site claims to give the odds on you dying next year, or for whatever period you select, based on a few simple questions.
 
Check out the radical backgrounds of some of the czars Obama is delegating our freedoms to in Who's Minding The Store.
 
In 2008, the average wage for 1.9 million federal civilian workers was $79,197, which compared to an average $49,935 for the nation’s 108 million private sector workers.
 
More than half of voters surveyed in a recent Rasmussen poll say they would prefer to replace every member of Congress this November.



Sign-Up

On a personal note, I predict the Obama administration will implode in the next few months. I just hope they don't take America down with them. Till then, keep smiling.
