In The News

California welfare cards used in casino ATMs will be stopped according to state officials. Darn. Now folks will have to stop at the corner store ATM before heading to the casino.

Robert Byrd (D-WV), the Apologizer, finally succumbs to nature's term limits. Former KKK member (1942-52) , in 1997 Byrd explained the office he held in the KKK was a youthful indiscretion. He dropped out of the KKK after 10 years because he saw a similar, more lucrative group, suited to his talent and ambitions - Congress. In 2005 he continued to apologize for his KKK activity, because he no longer used terms like "race mongrels." He later claimed he regretted filibustering for 14 hours the Civil Rights Act in 1964. The King of Pork - a life spent having political epiphanies. A classic liberal progressive man of the people (white people).

The Obama administration's bungling incompetence in handling the Gulf of Mexico/BP oil disaster makes hurricane Katrina/Bush look like a job well done. Coastal southern states - is this collective karma or what?

Elena Kagan - Supreme Court vapid and hollow charade nominee. Kagan has never served as a judge, never married, never had children, never came out of the closet. As with many of "the chosen" the past decade or so, SCOTUS members are no longer chosen on ability - but on quotas. We are missing a dwarf/midget though. In 1995 Kagan said Senate confirmation hearings had become a "vapid and hollow charade." How true, especially hers.

Gen. Stanley McChrystal relieved of command to be replaced by Gen. David Petraeus (or if you're a liberal progressive democrat - Gen. Betrayus). The Runaway General and his staff's disparaging comments to Rollingstone, however true they may be, should not have been spoken to a reporter. One cannot publicly call the boss and/or his minions, terms like Joe Bite-Me, clowns, etc. Does this mean Rollingstone mag is now in charge of foreign policy?

Obama says he is serious about tackling the deficit. At the Group of 20 summit in Canada Barry endorsed a goal of cutting government deficits in half by 2013 and stabilizing the ratio of public debt to gross domestic product by 2016. Not expected to meet these targets but ouch ouch ouch when they try. Sources close to somebody said "Most of the savings will come from winding down the war in Iraq, increased (tax) revenue from those making more than $250,000 a year, and savings from making government work more efficiently and eliminating programs that do not work." The newly formed Ministry of Smoke and Mirrors will implement this policy.

There was something fishy about Rolling Stone's McChrystal article. I didn't read past the intro because it came off like a movie script. Then the chosen headline photo of the firing matched up with the RS article. The whole episode seemed so contrived.

Some think McChrystal was set up. He's a liberal General, interviewed by a hardcore liberal ... trusted Hastings wouldn't make him look bad. Poor judgment if true. Hastings and RS had to know that article would end McChrystal's command, if not his career.
