Here’s what we get for nearly a billion in “humanitarian” aid to these animals
As everyone knows, President Obama would like to help any country in the world … apparently under the condition that it hates the US as much as he does. Included in this is $900,000,000 of money borrowed from China that earlier this year he proposed sending to the Palestinians, mostly in the Gaza Strip. This would be the same people who managed to kidnap an | Read More »
How long before the next mortgage meltdown?
I wish Francis C were still around to explain this. I can’t match that, so let me toss it out and let y’all chime in. It sounds like a complete disaster in the making. This piece linked by Drudge caught my eye. It’s about people saying the Fed needs to start bumping up interest rates real soon. To prevent inflation from taking off, the Federal | Read More »
The biggest difference between polar bears and black bears
is apparently that polar bears don’t interfere with millionaire liberals who burn a huge carbon footprint to fly their private jets to Aspen to ski and hang out with other lefties. Officials are now concerned that across Colorado too many wild bears have developed a tasted for human food and are getting used to people. They are now actively telling residents to be, literally, mean | Read More »
One example of current Obama Afghanistan strategy
Let’s see… Raise your hand if you’ve seen this sickening story reported prominently in the drive-by media here. Someone? Anyone? NATO-led forces are investigating the death of four Marines in eastern Afghanistan after their commanders reportedly rejected requests for artillery fire in a battle with insurgents, the Pentagon said on Wednesday. Tuesday’s incident was “under investigation” and details remained unclear, press secretary Geoff Morrell told | Read More »
UN solution to swine flu: Rich nations hand over $1.5 billion to WHO [corrected]
Maybe when Obama becomes UN God for a day later this month, he can announce that we’ll pay our fair share of this debacle… [My apologies. I must have been half asleep and for some reason saw 900m below and thought 900b. Arghhh…] The swine flu pandemic could kill millions and cause anarchy in the world’s poorest nations unless £900m can be raised from rich | Read More »
The left doesn’t blame EVERYTHING on racism
Case in point: A school bus that HAPPENS to be filled with mostly black kids and where a couple of them just HAPPEN to beat the crap out of what HAPPENS to be one of the only white kids while most of the other black kids HAPPEN to cheer them on has absolutely nothing whatsoever to do with racism. Zip. Zero. Nada. The incident grabbed | Read More »
Snowe comes through for our side; Reid says no filibuster allowed
From the diaries by Erick. . . The Hill reports that Snowe is not signing on to the Baucus bill. Senate Democrats are going to have to move forward on healthcare without a single Republican supporter after Sen. Olympia Snowe said Tuesday she could not back the Finance Committee’s bill. Chairman Max Baucus (D-Mont.) failed to win any Republican backer despite weeks of intense negotiations | Read More »
Obama creates (not just saves) 670 new jobs!
From a report about the opening of the AFL-CIO convention that Obama is genuflecting before speaking at today…. Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., sent the convention videotaped hellos with effusive praise. “I look forward to working with your leadership team in the future,” Pelosi said. Labor Secretary Hilda Solis echoed Pelosi in her speech Monday. She also called Sweeney | Read More »
Armed invasion w/o imminent threat; no WMD found
I’m not talking about the US vs Iraq, but the FBI vs some NYC houses. What is one to think when there is intelligence saying there’s a dangerous buildup of weapons, so you invade and don’t find what you were looking for? Hmmm…. The FBI falls under DOJ, so I’m sure the Democrats will be demanding that Holder resign or be fired for lying about | Read More »
I hope no one’s right were violated!
AP reports that residences in Queens were raided by a joint terrorism task force. Questions I can think of: Were any wiretaps used? If so, did the ACLU pre-approve their usage? Was any Muslim involved? If so, was CAIR invited to make sure nothing offensive was done? If it was a task force on terrorism, was this related to the 9/12 march (since those are | Read More »
