It’s the White House Blog — which I have read before — but today’s entry is outstanding. The best part:
RHETORIC: BECK SAID VANCOUVER LOST $1 BILLION WHEN IT “HAD THE OLYMPICS.” Glenn Beck said, “Vancouver lost, how much was it? they lost a billion dollars when they had the Olympics.” [Transcript, Glenn Beck Show, 9/29/09]REALITY: VANCOUVER’S OLYMPICS WILL NOT TAKE PLACE UNTIL 2010. Vancouver will host the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Games from February 12 – 28, 2010 and March 12-21, 2010, respectively. [Vancouver2010.com, accessed 9/29/09]
Is President Obama no longer the Leader of the Free World? Well, the Washington Times and Kathleen seem to think so. And it’s all his own fault because he didn’t say anything against the three most terrible people in the world while he was addressing the U.N. I guess if you don’t say nasty things about people that means you are weak. Or something.
So who does Kathleen and the Washington Times think is the new Leader of the Free World? Why, Mr. Netanyahy (sic), of course!
Mr. Netanyahy’s (sic)”Have you no shame?” speech to the U.N. brought tears to my eyes. It was a long time coming. The U.N. shamefully allows such evil as Ahmadinejad, Chavez, and Qaddafi to speak as world leaders and no one had a thing to say against them. Until Netanyahy (sic).
Gee, I don’t know. I’d like my Leader of the Free World to be above the fray and above calling people out, but that’s just me.
Ahmadinejad stole an election and killed his own people protesting, and let’s not forget that little nuclear proliferation issue. Pres. Obama then adopts a resolution to curb the proliferation and testing of nuclear arms and move toward total disarmament. (I’m thinking of adopting a resolution in my home that my teenagers keep their rooms pristine. I’m sure it will work. I mean, a resolution always works, right? They worked so well against Saddam.) The text of the resolution doesn’t even cite Iran by name. Why is this?
Because then he might have to name Israel as an outlaw nation as well???? Maybe???
Kathleen seems to be confused about how U.N. resolutions work and the state of nuclear weapons in the world. It’s a public secret that Israel has a rather large nuclear arsenal, it has never let the IAEA inspectors in and is not a party to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty. Just today, Syria demanded that Israel must comply with IAEA . I’ve always felt that it is dishonest of Israel not to comply with treaties and rules that every other nuclear nation does with the exception of India, Pakistan and North Korea.
Obama stated that the UN resolution was “not about singling out individual nations.” Oh no, heaven forbid we do that.
Se my above comment.
But Netanyahy (sic) didn’t have any such misgivings. It was nice to see strong leadership in the face of evil.
Because he’s the only kid on the block with the bomb? Could that be why? Or he’s just petty?
It doesn’t look like Russia or China are interesting (sic) in any serious sanctions on Iran. So it looks like it’s up to us. Great.
That’s news to me. And I guess the U.K. and France don’t count.
The White House reveals (sic) a few days ago that Iran has (sic) building a secret underground nuclear facility. Iran responds by test firing a series of missiles yesterday.
Which was expected by the administration.
As much as Pres. Obama and his “flower power” (ed. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH) foreign policy goes, Iran is clearly not going to “unclench it’s fist.” It’s now time for Obama to step up to the plate and be the kind of leader Netanyahy (sic) has clearly shown to be.
C’mon Obama, get up in front of the world and shake your fist in the air angrily! NOW!
There you have it: sloppy and stupid.
“Lefty, how do you FEEL being lumped in with this guy?”
Meh. You are the one doing the lumping, Kathleen, and I don’t really think that your opinion matters much to me and mine.
You keep fishing, but your bait is sour and all I can say is good luck with your crusade to get the good ole boys to vote for a “darkie”. Get back to me when you have found a minority to run for elective office here in Texas (who wasn’t appointed in the first place). The last one I remember was failed business owner and one time mayorial candidate Sanchez.
And while I don’t really care for football — GO COOOGGGGGSSSS!!!!!!!
That’s what Roberto said.
Here’s the video that I couldn’t find the other night of children praying to the president.
I don’t know if that is going to work, so here’s the link, too. (Upon editing, looks like it did.)
And here’s the link to the Michael Berry show where I was robbed. I’m on in the first hour on 9/24, then the second hour goes downhill. At least I got a laugh out of him. . . .
Thanks for letting me be on your show, Michael!
Lesson to self: careful what you ask for.
Dan Patrick shows up on PBS and showboats it all the way. It looks like he’s done the hair care for men and colored his gray. He looks like some guy from the ’70′s.
He’s trying so hard to dominate the conversation by throwing out every canard he can.
Perhaps more in depth about it tomorrow.
Next up is Jared Woodfill, the hapless chair of the Harris County Republican Party.
Jared: Democrat party democrat party democrat party. And keeps coughing and sniffling. Dear GOD he might be dying off-camera.
The Democratic chair is hilarious! LOL hilarious. He skewers everything.
Jared is spreading the pig flu as we speak. Jared is fringe!
I entered this contest on the radio, and sure I knew going in that it was subjective, but I thought I had the very best answer.
I listened to the whole show, just to know where NOT to shop. Nick wins because of his family.
At least I got the first 10 score!!1111!!!!1!1!!!11!!!!!
What was the competition? What is the creepiest President Obama “worship” you have seen or heard. I called in and said that I had seen a video of children (because this show was bouncing off the video of children making the rounds today) raising their hands in worship to a cutout of the president and then the woman leading the prayer started speaking in tongues. I was referring to the documentary Jesus Camp. (The film was made by the same people who made the film The Boys from Baraka — which I love.)
Of course, there was enough time to do a simple Google search while I was on hold, and I’m pretty sure the people who work for the radio host are competent, so when they let me on the air, they were not kind (they didn’t even ask me to stay on the line to get my information, despite the fact that I had the highest score at that point), and the radio host was prepared (maybe).
My only surprise was that none of the callers who knew what I was talking about got through. So, it was a very harry call screening this evening.
Podcast up tomorrow. (9/24 hours i and 2)
Earlier in the show, the host was saying that Americans (can’t remember if he said ‘real Americans’) don’t do the worship thing. That sort of stuff is left to African countries.
There are McCain condoms, too.
While he tried to focus his one hour show on President Obama over-exposing himself and his interview with Glenn Beck, his callers were more focused on a local story.
Last year, a Houston police officer was killed by an illegal immigrant in a stop where the officer had pulled the man over and placed him in custody, but the man had a gun and shot the officer. The wife of the officer, who is also an officer, has sued the city.
The two callers that I heard while running errands and driving home were very possessive about police department equipment and their taxes. They were both probably old white guys, as Michael Berry could deduct as well. Why should they pay more for a black police officer not doing his job right? So, he died. So, they “feel” for his family. But damn it all if their taxpayer cop cars and their taxpayer cops do something their taxpayer (but non-cop) asses have to pay when there is a lacking.
Berry tried to bridge the gap by suggesting that the killer had the gun “up his rectum.” This made the one caller uncomfortable because he had to argue about asshole and gun sizes with Berry on the air. Berry said, “He’s a big guy.” Or something like that.
Oh, did I mention that the slain police officer was black?
So let’s break this down. The chief is black, the slain officer is black, Michael Berry’s callers are old white guys. Of course they think that they will pay individually for this crime, and claim that they own the police department (while wanting to de-fund every branch and tree of government — every man for himself!!!!!).
Did Berry diffuse anything? No. He just stepped on his own interview of a personality that he already has on board and agreed with him, while the person Berry idolizes (wants to replace?) sends a shot out.
Gees, and I thought it was bad being a Democrat.
HAHA moment — Berry said Clinton left office in 2002. And then whored himself and his book until he was shamed to go underground and claimed there was some magazine showing Clinton circling the drain. HAHAHAHA. Lucky tags tonight Michael.
Remember hearing last week that the Senate and the House had moved quickly to de-fund ACORN? Well the same people who have been whining about legislation moving to fast (though how spending months upon months on something is somehow moving too fast escapes me) have now seemingly overreached. From HuffPo:
The congressional legislation intended to defund ACORN, passed with broad bipartisan support, is written so broadly that it applies to “any organization” that has been charged with breaking federal or state election laws, lobbying disclosure laws, campaign finance laws or filing fraudulent paperwork with any federal or state agency. It also applies to any of the employees, contractors or other folks affiliated with a group charged with any of those things.
In other words, the bill could plausibly defund the entire military-industrial complex. Whoops.
This legislation may also be unconstitutional, if the intent is to single out one group.
I hate the”gotcha” method of arguing, and so I really disliked what smart-alecks who made the videos did. I do enjoy that the Republicans have gotten themselves in a bind.
As all the commenters on the Houston Chronicle have been crying: where’s the reporting on this!?!?!?!??!?!?!?!
I felt a little sad about it. Poor Dora, she gets such a bad rap. But she’s the one who bit the water heater guy, and NEIGHBOR just can’t resist teasing her. He walks along the sidewalk holding his hand just high enough so that she (Dora with her bad little leg) can’t jump up and bite him. Dick.
I’ve seen one little girl ride her bike in the street until she gets to my house, and then she rides on the sidewalk. She does this consistently, with her mom still walking in the street. Dora always barks.
I’ve got to put the sign up, just to protect Dora. It makes me a little sad though.
Yeah, that’s all I could come up with. I literally worked in the ditch today and I don’t wanna go to work tomorrow — just one more day off, please!!!!!!
