If AIG's handling of the bonuses is so bad, why not remove the CEO? Since the federal government own 80% of it, the votes are there.

All they'd have to do is vote to remove the CEO, replace him with someone in whom they have confidence, and who has paid their taxes, and . . .

Oh . . . wait, I just found the flaw.

It's nonsense. How much you wanna bet that there is never a constitutional challenge to the bonuses? If there is a challenge I'd guess it won't be overruled. I really find it odd that conservatives are trying to turn these wealthy executives into some sort of capitalist martyrs sacrificed on the altar of socialism.

Bartering makes a comeback for those short on cash

BOISE, Idaho - Tired of her pink bathroom countertops but short on cash for a remodel, Rachel Alemany decided to get the work done the old-fashioned way: through bartering.

Alemany has experience putting down flooring, so she and her husband traded flooring work with a neighbor who has tiling experience.

"It was that easy," said Alemany, a special education teacher from Pittsfield, Mass. She got the idea from her mother-in-law, who exchanged renovations for room and board, and she might try it again: "I have other rooms in my house that need work."

Bartering -- the trading of goods or services without using cash -- is making a comeback in a troubled economy. It can be as simple as trading baby-sitting with another family, or as complex as an exchange with strangers facilitated by one of the several Web sites that have sprung up to connect barterers.

President TelePrompTer® compares Model T to SUV

At a visit to at the Edison electric car factory in California, President TelePrompTer told the employees that "A Model T got better gas mileage than today's SUV". Not wanting to take a man of his stout reputation at his word alone, let's look at the specs for each. Since the Model T is a Ford, we will use the Popular Explorer for comparison:

Model T

Engine: 177 Cubic Inch (1.9 Litre) in line 4 cylinder

Horsepower: 20.2 BHP

Top Speed: 40-45 MPH

Fuel Mileage: 13-21 MPG

Ford Explorer:

Engine: 4.6L V8

Horsepower: 292 BHP

Top Speed: ~120 MPH

Fuel Mileage: 15-21 MPG

So, to summarize the Explorer has a bigger engine, more power, higher top speed, not to mention more luxury and comfort than a Model T, plus all kinds of Pollution controls and electronic monitoring and it gets about the SAME MILEAGE and the Model T!

I suppose no one would dare challenge His Holiness on his wholesale fracturing of the facts.

A priest and a rabbi operated a church and a synagogue
across the street from each other. Since their schedules
intertwined, they decided to go in together to buy a car.
So they did. They drove it home and parked it in the
street between their establishments.

A few minutes later, the rabbi looked out and saw the
priest sprinkling water on their new car. It didn't need
a wash, so he ran out and asked the priest what he was
doing. "I'm blessing it" the priest replied.

The rabbi replied "Oh," then he ran back into the synagogue.
He reappeared a few minutes later with a hack saw, ran to the
car and cut off the last 2 inches of the tailpipe.

A concerned husband went to a doctor to talk about his wife. He says to the
doctor, "Doctor, I think my wife is deaf because she never hears me the
first time and always asks me to repeat things." "Well," the doctor
replied, "go home and tonight stand about 15 feet from her and say
something to her. If she doesn't reply move about 5 feet close and say it
again. Keep doing this so that we'll get an idea about the severity of her
deafness".

Sure enough, the husband goes home and does exactly as instructed. He
starts off about 15 feet from his wife in the kitchen as she is chopping
some vegetables and says, "Honey, what's for dinner?" He hears no response.
He moves about 5 feet closer and asks again. No reply. He moves 5 feet
closer. Still no reply. He gets fed up and moves right behind her, about
an inch away, and asks again, "Honey, what's for dinner?"

She replies, "For the fourth time, vegetable stew!"

Yeah. They could get a firm or firms to this pro bono. As someone pointed out this morning the executives in question have "nothing to lose." However, as you pointed out unless they have the financial ability to fight this case it might not get anywhere.

Sure I would like a smaller bonuses, like most people. But we are still a country with laws and they must be respected else it is just anarchy.

I prefer to live by our country's laws.
The bonuses were legally contracted prior to the stimuloso and included in the Porkulous package that Congress passed and TOTUS signed it. So, AIG, Congress and TOTUS are contracturally obligated to pay them.

The 90% tax is ex post facto is illegal unless some liberal judges decide to reinvent the English langauge in the constitution.

re: #53 Killgore Trout

Either way, could you imagine AIG going to the supreme court to sue the American tax payers to pay their outrageous bonuses? I think conservatives are making a very bad mistake defending these creeps who ran the economy into the ground and now we're expected to give them outrageous bonuses for doing it? It's insanity.

Geithner: Treas. expressed concerns to Dodd

Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner acknowledged Thursday that his department "expressed concern" to Sen. Chris Dodd (D-Conn.) that a provision concerning bonuses in the stimulus bill could prompt lawsuits from workers at bailed-out companies—a measure at the heart of this week’s AIG bonus controversy.

Already under fire for his handling of the issue, Geithner said Treasury officials spoke with Dodd about the measure. The language that was then substituted in the bill allowed the controversial AIG bonuses to go forward.

A.I.G. sues U.S. government for return of $306 million in tax payments

While the American International Group comes under fire from Congress over executive bonuses, it is quietly fighting the U.S. government for the return of $306 million in tax payments, some related to deals that were conducted through offshore tax havens.

A.I.G. sued the government last month in a bid to force it to return the payments, which stemmed in large part from its use of aggressive tax deals, some involving entities controlled by the company's financial products unit in the Cayman Islands, Ireland, the Dutch Antilles and other offshore havens.

The U.S. House of Representatives has approved a plan to set up a new "volunteer corps" and consider whether "a workable, fair, and reasonable mandatory service requirement for all able young people" should be developed.

The legislation also refers to "uniforms" that would be worn by the "volunteers" and the "need" for a "public service academy, a 4-year institution" to "focus on training" future "public sector leaders." The training, apparently, would occur at "campuses."

A.I.G. is effectively suing its majority owner, the government, which has an 80 percent stake and has poured nearly $200 billion into the insurer in a bid to avert its collapse and avoid troubling the global financial markets. The company is in effect asking for even more money, in the form of tax refunds. The suit also suggests that A.I.G. is spending taxpayer money to pursue its case, something it is legally entitled to do. Its initial claim was denied by the Internal Revenue Service last year.

"My administration is now committed to diplomacy that addresses the full range of issues before us, and to pursuing constructive ties," Obama said in a message released to select broadcast outlets in the Middle East timed for the Nowruz holiday celebration in Iran.

INTERVIEW WITH HOMELAND SECURITY SECRETARY JANET NAPOLITANO

Janet Napolitano, 51, is President Obama's new Homeland Security Secretary. She spoke with SPIEGEL about immigration, the continued threat of terrorism and the changing tone in Washington.

SPIEGEL: Madame Secretary, in your first testimony to the US Congress as Homeland Security Secretary you never mentioned the word "terrorism." Does Islamist terrorism suddenly no longer pose a threat to your country?

Napolitano: Of course it does. I presume there is always a threat from terrorism. In my speech, although I did not use the word "terrorism," I referred to "man-caused" disasters. That is perhaps only a nuance, but it demonstrates that we want to move away from the politics of fear toward a policy of being prepared for all risks that can occur.

Are they all young, cowed or what? If I was in a class I'd think it was great debate but, then again, I got a "D" in a college English class because I challenged this prof who thought Jesus was gay. Finally got the grade up to a "C" because my uncle's bro (from another college...USC) sent a letter on my behalf.

"Francisco's Money Speech"

"Whenever destroyers appear among men, they start by destroying money, for money is men's protection and the base of a moral existence. Destroyers seize gold and leave to its owners a counterfeit pile of paper. This kills all objective standards and delivers men into the arbitrary power of an arbitrary setter of values. Gold was an objective value, an equivalent of wealth produced. Paper is a mortgage on wealth that does not exist, backed by a gun aimed at those who are expected to produce it. Paper is a check drawn by legal looters upon an account which is not theirs: upon the virtue of the victims. Watch for the day when it bounces, marked, 'Account overdrawn.'"

On whether it's a big deal or not, if you're sitting around in your living room, and you say it to someone who knows you say it with love and no ill will, that's one thing. In his case, the whole country is looking through that keyhole, and the POTUS can't afford to mention special olympics in a way that implies it's something less. The big deal is how it's treated vs. how it would have been treated had it been someone not idolized by the press.

This truly leaves me speechless with dismay:

Barack Obama issues surprise video offering 'new beginning' to Iran

Video here.

(Only 224 views as of this writing -- apparently not many Americans know about this! Note however that it was shown in the Middle East on TV, but not here. Obama does not want to let American citizens too see exactly what he is doing, it seems.)

President Barack Obama issued an unprecedented video appeal to Iran today offering a 'new beginning' of diplomatic engagement to reverse decades of distrust and animosity between the two nations.

In an extraordinary videotape, which was aired early today on selected networks in the Middle East, Mr Obama said Washington was committed to pursuing "constructive ties" with Iran. He promised that Tehran could take its 'rightful place' in the world if it renounced terror and embraced peace.

"My administration is now committed to diplomacy that addresses the full range of issues before us, and to pursuing constructive ties among the United States, Iran and the international community," Mr Obama said in the message marking the start of Nowruz, the Iranian New Year, which is planned to appeal direct to the Iranian people.

In a major shift from the isolationist policy toward the Islamic state pursued by George Bush, he expressed an openness to direct diplomatic contacts between the countries, saying :"For nearly three decades relations between our nations have been strained.
...

"You have that right (to take its place in the world) - but it comes with real responsibilities, and that place cannot be reached through terror or arms, but rather through peaceful actions that demonstrate the true greatness of the Iranian people and civilization," he said.

"And the measure of that greatness is not the capacity to destroy, it is your demonstrated ability to build and create," in a reference to Iran's nuclear programme and missile development efforts.

After it was broadcast, a top advisor to Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad welcomed Mr Obama's message but urged him to back it with concrete action to repair past American mistakes.

Note Dinnerjacket's response: "Words will do you no good, Barry: bend over and take it like a man!"

Here are some choice snippets from the speech, with my commentary:

Nowruz is just one part of your great and celebrated culture. Over many centuries your art, your music, literature and innovation have made the world a better and more beautiful place.

Note how Obama has never said this to Americans -- only to Iranians. Instead, Michelle said she has never been proud of America, and appointee Eric Holder says we are a nation of cowards. But the Iranians -- they get the full measure of praise!

The United States wants the Islamic Republic of Iran to take its rightful place in the community of nations.

But including the phrase "Islamic" in this he has just legitimized the Iranian regime! Even Carter wasn't this craven. Nauseating.

Thank you, and Eid-eh Shoma Mobarak."

This is why he doesn't want Americans seeing this -- it feeds the widespread suspicion that he still has Islamic religious sentiments.

Needless to say, Iran will play along with this time-wasting charade, and not make a single concession as we all sit around the conference table and talk talk talk -- while in the background they are finishing their bomb. It's a dream come true for the Islamic hardliners -- at least another two years to build the bomb while another president foozles away the time and makes no hard demands.

Under Obama, Iran is sure to get a nuke, if this is his approach.

It's everything Obama's detractors during the campaign feared he would do, and worse.

Well, if I were to concede a bit I would say that he almost forced himself to say these things. Which means as you said he is trying to play nice but he sat behind the lens and forced the words out in a task like fashion.

Gus, I saw that differently from you. I'd swear Obama means every word of it. He's that dumb. The Iranians have got to realize it. He's not conning them; he's simply handing them our lunch money. He means every word of what he says. That's what's so scary.

Inside AIG-FP, Feeling the Public's Wrath

The handful of souls who championed the firm's now-infamous credit-default swaps are, by nearly every account, long since departed. Those left behind to clean up the mess, the majority of whom never lost a dime for AIG, now feel they have been sold out by their Congress and their president.

"They've chosen to throw us under the bus," said a Financial Products executive, one of several who spoke on condition of anonymity, fearing reprisals. "They have vilified us."

. . .

But it would be impractical at best, dangerous at worst, to get rid of everyone at Financial Products, according to AIG officials. If everyone leaves, Pasciucco said, "you don't have people that really, truly understand the book [of business]. We're still big enough that that matters."

If they did walk out the door, who would volunteer to work at the Chernobyl of the financial world? And what would become of the mammoth portfolio that remains?

"It would become the biggest naked position on Wall Street," one longtime Financial Products executive said, "and everybody would exploit it."

Yeah, keep haranguing these honest people out the door.

C-Rations... A Love Story

I have to tell someone. Keeping it a secret all these years has taken its toll on my sanity. You're the only one I trust and hope you will understand. Don't judge me too harshly.

I was an Avionics consultant on H-34's and had a contractual agreement with Uncle Sam. Not a difficult assignment, but it almost paid well. Their headquarters in D.C. had asked if I'd go look at some problems in a quiet little place called Ky Ha, VIETNAM. Wouldn't take long I was told. So, I booked passage on the Princeton and arrived late in August. It was a hot, dusty little town without one decent restaurant and no bar. Picked up my blanket and looked for an empty embarkation box to sleep in. That night, under the gaze of a floating flare and the gentle, rhythmic sound of M-60's, I slept.

I'm not certain when it was that I first realized I was in love with C-Rations. It must have been a gradual thing because I never did go through that knock me out of my socks phase. I just seemed to wake up one morning, opened the box and it was there. I knew. C knew. As if the master plan of the universe had placed us together. Together! But, only for one of life's cruel short periods of time.

We both knew it was wrong. C came from a family of Flag Rank Officers, General Foods. And, me? I was just a kid from the south side of Memphis. Young and innocent. She was bright and shiny with the words PROPERTY OF THE U.S.GOVERNMENT stamped on her full, smooth, rounded sides. Cold to the touch but, oh so warm when held tightly over a flame. Whereas, I was just a piece of Marine trash in a dirty flight suit and unpolished boots. But, each time I saw C I fell deeper into the spell of her charms. It couldn't be simple heartburn.

I'd heard what men said about her. How her Ham & Limas were untouchable. Her Spaghetti needed seasoning. The saltpeter they had forced her to be with when she was young. The tasteless rolls and green cigarettes. It didn't matter. None of it mattered. I wanted her. Once I found her I wanted to protect her. To keep her from all those John Waynes and K-Bars they had used to open her. They didn't understand her. They didn't know C as I knew C. I loved her.

We had to steal our moments together. First we saw each other twice a day. Gradually, we grasped for more and more time. Anytime. Just to be with each other. For as I drew nearer to C, I could feel the emotions start from deep within my gut. My feelings would often run from both ends while knowing this was true love. The highs and lows of our love flowed together like nothing I'd ever experienced before. All I wanted to do was be with C. To Hell with the rest of the world.

Then it happened. Someone whispered a rumor. I heard it first in the four holer and later in the Green Garden Hose Shower Room. Nasty rumors which couldn't be true. They said C was going away. Her father had sent her an ultimatum. Either be on the 0600 Marlog or she was to be disinherited. She'd never be able to see her little brother roll of toilet paper again. Her teenage plastic spoon. Her aunt Fruit Cocktail. She had to choose between ME and her filthy rich, godforsaken family. Why did it have to come to this?

I tried all night to reach her on the field phone. Her new roommate, SPAM, didn't know where she was. I was frantic. I looked for her everywhere, but it was too late. She was gone. And with her went my heart and Kaeopectate. I was left with only the memories.

I'm older now and can afford to eat at almost any Burger King I want to. I no longer have a consulting contract with CMC, Inc. I still think about her though. The nights we spent together during the monsoons in our hardback tent. Just the two of us and eight of our closest friends. Whenever I reach for the Tabasco sauce I see C standing there with the moonlight glistening off her open top. The fragrance of her gravy still wisps through the air. She was so beautiful. And, for awhile, she was mine.

The more I rewatch the video the more I think the man is showing classic signs of medicinal over-dosage, legal and/or illegal. He may not have a clue what he is saying.

Note that Obama, through his bong-buddy Holder, essentially just legalized marijuana while nobody was noticing.

I know there are some pro-pot people here on LGF, but I'm not one of them. Holder just said that the Feds will not pursue any "official" pot dealer in any state with "medical marijuana" laws.

I have it from good authorities that at least 75% of the patients at these pot dispensaries are fakers -- no real disease, just want to get high. It's easy to buy a 'scrip (fake prescription) on the street for a few bucks. The pot stores know this, and never verify them. The whole goal is to de facto legalize pot using the "medical" excuse. It's working.

One wonder if Obama's change in policy on this topic has anything to do with this or this.

I don't know if this was posted in the Obama Insults Disabled People thread because I haven't read a lot there, but this part says it much differently than would be stated in a US publication

"It just seemed to pop out of nowhere. One minute the President was being all warm and self-deprecating. The next he was making fun of the disabled.

Not even Obama’s second-in-command, the apocalyptically hapless Joe Biden, could have snatched such a resounding defeat from the jaws of such a guaranteed victory."

Under Socialism, Who Benefits?

Under capitalism, I work for myself and you work for yourself. Under socialism, I work for myself -- and for you. Under socialism, you work for yourself -- and for me. Wait a minute. If each of us works either way, then why do we need socialism? Can't you and I each do a better job if we simply concentrate on ourselves? But there's a third party -- someone else who doesn't want to work. Under capitalism, you and I can each ignore him. But under socialism, we have no choice: We must work for him as well as for ourselves, regardless of what we want. He doesn't have to work because he knows we must work for him. That's the difference between socialism and freedom.

An old Native American wanted a loan for $500. He approached his local banker. The banker pulled out the loan application, asking, "What are you going to do with the money?" "Take jewelry to city and sell it," said the old man. "What have you got for collateral?" queried the banker, going strictly by the book. "Don't know of collateral." "Well that's something of value that would cover the cost of the loan. Have you got any vehicles?" "Yes, I have a 1949 Chevy pickup." The banker shook his head, "How about livestock?" "Yes, I have a horse." "How old is it?" "I don't know; it has no teeth." Finally the banker decided to make the $500 loan. Several weeks later the old man was back in the bank. He pulled out a roll of bills, "Here's the money to pay loan," he said, handing the entire amount including interest. "What are you going to do with the rest of that money?" "Put it in my pocket." "Why don't you deposit it in my bank?" he asked. "I don't know of deposit." "Well, you put the money in our bank and we take care of it for you. When you want to use it you can withdraw it." The old Indian leaned across the desk, looking suspiciously at the banker, and asked, "What you got for collateral?"

You simply cannot write blacker irony than the lead of this story..

Private inspections of food companies seen as weak

WASHINGTON – The mortgage meltdown exposed the weakness of self-regulation in financial markets. Now the salmonella outbreak is doing the same for the food industry.

The government broke the mortgage market. The government was supposed to regulate the financial companies but was to stupid and corrupt.

Now they do not want to let the salmonella "crisis" to go to waste as they try to spread their toxic tentacles into another sector of the economy.

Food industry executives! How bad will you look when you sit before these people in a toxic food poisoning scandal after accepting government money? And then I would move heaven and earth to keep my plant clean of filth and government regulators.

If I were a food industry exec I would look closely at the photo of the congressman in this story before coming under his power.

President Barry has ended terrorism:

Obama-Speak: Homeland Security Secretary Replaces 'Terrorism' With the Term 'Man-Caused Disaster'

SPIEGEL: Madame Secretary, in your first testimony to the US Congress as Homeland Security Secretary you never mentioned the word "terrorism." Does Islamist terrorism suddenly no longer pose a threat to your country?

NAPOLITANO: Of course it does. I presume there is always a threat from terrorism. In my speech, although I did not use the word "terrorism," I referred to "man-caused" disasters. That is perhaps only a nuance, but it demonstrates that we want to move away from the politics of fear toward a policy of being prepared for all risks that can occur.

And if we've learnt anything from liberals (and we haven't) it's that "man-caused" disasaters can be solved with carbon credits.

An avid golfer dies and goes to heaven. He is met by St. Peter who tells him, "Welcome to Heaven. I know you will be pleased to know that this is the best golf course in the universe!" The man's eyes turn cloudy.

St. Peter says, "And the weather here is always good." A tear begins to form in the man's eye.

St. Peter says, "And there is never any lines of people when you want to golf." A tear starts dropping from the man's other eye.

St. Peter hurriedly says, "And your drives go at least 50 yards further up here." The man is now sniffling.

St. Peter then says, "And you will never have more than two puts on any of the greens." The man is now sobbing uncontrollably.

St. Peter asks, "Hey, what is the matter with you? I thought you would be overjoyed. Why the tears?"

The man answers, "If my wife had not fed me all those healthy food, I would have been here five years earlier!"

Galloway is barred by Canada eh!

Border security chiefs have declared the Respect MP "inadmissable" because of his views on Afghanistan and the presence of Canadian troops there.

Mr Galloway is due to make a speech in Toronto on March 30, following a US lecture tour, but will be turned away if he tries to enter Canada.

Canadian rules say he will be allowed in only if he has a special permit from immigration minister Jason Kenney.

But Mr Kenney's spokesman said: "George Galloway is not getting a permit — end of story.

My kind of Chain Letter

True Friends

Are you tired of those sissy 'friendship' poems that always sound good, but never actually come close to reality? Well, here is a series of promises that actually speak of true friendship.

You will see no cutesy little Smiley faces on this card - Just the stone cold truth of our great friendship.

1. When you are sad --I will jump on the person who made you sad-like a spider monkey jacked up on Mountain Dew!

2. When you are blue -- I will try to dislodge whatever is choking you.

3. When you smile -- I will know you are plotting something that I must be involved in.

4. When you're scared -- we will hightail it out of there.

5. When you are worried -- I will tell you horrible stories about how much wo rse it could be until you quit whining, ya big baby!

6. When you are confused -- I will use little words.

7. When you are sick --Stay away from me until you are well again. I don't want whatever you have.

8. When you fall -- I'll laugh at your clumsy ass.

9. This is my oath...I pledge it to the end. 'Why?' you may ask -- because you are my FRIEND!

Friendship is like
peeing your pants,
everyone can see it,
but only you can feel the true warmth.


Send this to 10 of your closest friends,

Then get depressed because you can only think of four .

Good morning.

I woke up to hear the MSM falling all over themselves to "understand" and explain away and defend The Marxist Messiah's insult about Special Olympics. If this was Bush you would hear the screaming non stop all day. Today they will mention it once, dismiss it and then ignore it.

By the way, expect the market to drop again today as Obama's incompetant Treasury Secretary and SEC Chair continue to flounder and the credit system continues to lock up.

There were outstanding articles yesterday in several places about how illegal "naked" short selling by speculators was a main key in the destruction of Lehman Brothers. Look for similar bear raids to start up as the SEC is still dong nothing about it and the bears will try to destroy more companies for profit until the uptick rule is reinstalled.

As bad as his comment about the Special Olympics is, I think comparing AIG and banks to suicide bombers is worse.


At his town hall meeting in Costa Mesa, Calif., Wednesday evening, President Obama compared embattled insurer AIG and other large failing banks to a suicide bomber.

"Here's the problem," Mr. Obama said, "It's almost like they've got -- they've got a bomb strapped to them and they've got their hand on the trigger. You don't want them to blow up. But you've got to kind of talk them, ease that finger off the trigger."

Laura Bush would have climbed Mr. Bush like a tree if he had said something like that.

Bush had too much respect for other people than to say something like that. Interwoven into Obama's bad attempt at self-depreciating humor is an arrogance that requires him to put down others.

I heard him say last night that he is trying to change the past practice of blaming others. All he has done since he got elected is blame Bush.

By the way, the 90% tax is going to really make it difficult for large banks to be profitable. Their "rain maker" employees will leave and go to work for other banks not likely to be subject to the tax. Thus these struggling banks will be further crippled and their competition strenghtened.

I bet head hunters are burning up the phones right now at any bank that even looks like it might have some TARP money coming. I worked at a place once where something similar happened. The head hunters got a hold of a bank phone book and just started working their way through it. The place was stripped of all talent (including me) and folded.

Mandy, I had not heard the word "retarded" used very often. Boy, it flew around on the left.

I actually heard an 0bama supported call in to the John Gibson show who said, "We don't need no vice-president who goes around birthing retarded babies."

That depth of ignorance is shocking. The caller obviously has not even the least idea of what causes mental retardation.

Anyway, red line on the left is 2009 to date and after all the dire predictions, we are actually having a rather average year......Arctic Sea Ice

"You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy
out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another
person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to
anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody
else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work
because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other
half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is
going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is about the end
of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it."

Those union workers "protesting" AIG while on the clock, are probably Obama's biggest supporters at the SEIU union. Andy Stern, the Service Employees International Union, had a bullhorn and was fomenting the fake outrage.

Correction, that was SEIU union president Andy Stern with the bullhorn, fomenting fake outrage from his union employees, while he pays them to "protest" AIG, and spread the wealth around. As if Obama hasn't promised the unions billions.

Maher: "I'm not that convinced that that's her baby....You don't smell something?... It's not like they're not willing to lie about everything else." Other winners:

• "The Media Messiah Award" went to MSNBC's Chris Matthews for boasting Obama gave him a "thrill going up my leg."

• "The Obamagasm Award" was won by ABC's Bill Weir for ruminating over how "even the seagulls must have been awed by the blanket of humanity" at Obama's inauguration.

• "Dan Rather Memorial Award for the Stupidest Analysis" was earned by Ted Turner for warning that if global warming is not addressed that in 30 or 40 years "most of the people will have died and the rest of us will be cannibals."

Greets and saluts from the NYC metro area. As I wrote up in the spinoffs, NJ nanny staters are looking to strip bikini waxers of their jobs by banning brazilian wax jobs - all because they got all of two complaints for injuries (one of the victims is filing suit - which is an appropriate action depending on the facts and circumstances).

If two injuries is sufficient to kill this particular industry service, how about the death of a skier this week? Would that not require the shuttering of the ski industry? The death or paralysis of baseball, football players or basketball players from injuries sustained? Where does this end?

All this comes at a time when Trenton faces a dire fiscal situation, and the do-nothing legislators need to show their constituents that they are doing something. This is the sideshow they've devised.

re: #657 lawhawk

Greets and saluts from the NYC metro area. As I wrote up in the spinoffs, NJ nanny staters are looking to strip bikini waxers of their jobs by banning brazilian wax jobs - all because they got all of two complaints for injuries (one of the victims is filing suit - which is an appropriate action depending on the facts and circumstances).

If two injuries is sufficient to kill this particular industry service, how about the death of a skier this week? Would that not require the shuttering of the ski industry? The death or paralysis of baseball, football players or basketball players from injuries sustained? Where does this end?

All this comes at a time when Trenton faces a dire fiscal situation, and the do-nothing legislators need to show their constituents that they are doing something. This is the sideshow they've devised.

Classic.

The skiing industry is waaaaaaaaaaaay too powerful to mess with. A ski resort practically has to hunt down and shove a skier off a cliff in Colorado before any negligence is found.

That's a shame because I was impressed - with Obama's short term memory - and lack of advisors who have any knowledge of American History. Iran took over our Embassy in 1979, held 54 American Civilians Hostage for 444 days, enabled the bombing of the US Marines barracks in Lebanon in 1983 and - WHILE OBAMA WAS POTUS, were captured in Iraq teaching Al-Q and others how to more effectively KILL American troops. And Obama wants to apologize to them?! Fuck him and Fuck Iran.

780 Honorary Yooper  Fri, Mar 20, 2009 7:15:47am

re: #693 Dustoff-507

So Obama wants today cars to get the same MPG as a Model T Ford.

Is our Prez really that dumb?

Yes, Dustoff, I'm afraid he really is that dumb. The Detroit Free Press took him to task for it:

Obama repeats inaccurate jab on Model T's mileage

“The 1908 Model T -- think about this -- the 1908 Model T earned better gas mileage than the typical SUV in 2008,” Obama told the crowd. “Think about that -- a hundred years later and we're getting less gas mileage, not better, on SUVs.”

That line about the Model T, a version of which Secretary of State Hillary Clinton used during her presidential bid, can be traced to a 2003 Sierra Club ad campaign that said the Model T could go 25 miles on a gallon of gasoline. Earlier references put the Model T’s mileage at 20 to 25 m.p.g.

That’s certainly better than the 18.7 m.p.g. real-world average of SUVs sold in 2008, according to federal statistics.

But according to Ford the first Model Ts built in 1908 could go 13 to 21 miles on a gallon, depending on the particular variation. The automaker and Model T clubs say typical Tin Lizzies averaged 15 m.p.g.

What remains unclear is how it makes sense to compare a fabric-roofed, four-seat car to a seven-passenger truck stuffed with high-tech accoutrements.

Those first Model Ts weighed about 1,200 pounds, lacked windows, rode on wood wheels and could ease up to a top speed of 45 miles per hour. A modern SUV tips the scales at 4,600 pounds, hits a top speed of 140 m.p.h. and has to meet a bevy of laws for crashworthiness.

When adjusted for their massive differences in weight using the government’s formulas, today’s typical SUV is about five times more efficient than the Model T.

Then, part of Sympathy was posted, I followed up with some of my lines, and got some additional ones from Occasional Reader and other lizards.

So here is the result, Sympathy for Obama:

Please allow me to introduce myself
Im a man of hope and change
I've been around for few short years
But I'm the object of a new faith.

People think I'm Jesus Christ
Bringing hope and change
Made damn sure that no one
Knows what that change will bring

Pleased to meet you

I went to Washington

Turned the US socialist
The people screamed in pain

While the Reverend Wright

Put down Jews and Whites

I shouted out,

and made y'all think

Im a man of hope and change
And I played all the race cards
And threw all my friends under the bus

Pleased to meet you
Hope you guessed my name, oh yeah
But misleading you
Is the nature of my campaign, oh yeah, get down, baby
Pleased to meet you
Hope you guessed my (middle) name, oh yeah
But misleading you
Is just the nature of my campaign

Just as every pol is a criminal
That the spinners make into saints

To end this tale
Elect me President
And I'll lay your world to waste

So if you meet me
Have some courtesy
Have some sympathy, and some taste
Use all your well-learned politesse
Or Ill lay your world to waste, um yeah
Pleased to meet you
Hope you guessed (middle) my name, um yeah
But misleading you
Is the nature of my campaign, um mean it, get down

You know, I'm almost to the point of saying, go ahead, tax the shit out of everyone, rich and poor. Go ahead with that UN proposed oil tax of 750 billion, to "invest" in a greener future.
I won't be able to drive anywhere, or afford anything, but the sooner people realize how very stupid these ideas are, the better. People are learning more about the constitution, about how the economy works, and doesn't work, than ever before.
The slow drip, the death by 1000 cuts, that is the real danger. Have them ram everything down our throats in months, not years, and we will see Republican's back in power in 2010.

Ted Turner shrugged off the millions dead in Cambodia by Pol Pot's hand after we let the Communists take Vietnam and the region back by force.

Turner shrugged and said something like, it wasn't newsworthy enough to document, so it's like it didn't matter.

Turner could have played ignoring genocide like Clinton did, by PRETENDING to be sorry, but he's too big a narcissist to care about genocide when enabled by liberals such as himself.

I won't be able to drive anywhere, or afford anything, but the sooner people realize how very stupid these ideas are, the better. People are learning more about the constitution, about how the economy works, and doesn't work, than ever before.
The slow drip, the death by 1000 cuts, that is the real danger. Have them ram everything down our throats in months, not years, and we will see Republican's back in power in 2010.

In other news this morning...

I have to give credit where credit is due. After establishing a bizarre and troubling new precedent by putting a sitting president on the Tonight Show, NBC at least did go ahead and air Obama's offensive "special olympics" remark, without editing it out. So they're not completely under Obama's thumb.

Either that, or they're just so hopelessly in love with the messiah-king that they never even noticed that he said something offensive. I'd prefer to go on thinking that it was the former.

Fist clencher plays hard to get.

This will just make Obama and his smart diplomats more desperate and more willing to sell the farm.


TEHRAN, Iran — Iran's supreme leader said Friday that world powers had been persuaded they could not block Iran's nuclear progress — making no mention of a new-year's message sent by President Obama to his country, Reuters reported.

Neither Ayatollah Ali Khamenei nor Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad noted Obama's attempt to make a "new beginning" with their country in recorded messages they issued to mark the Iranian New Year.

Obama released the video Friday to coincide with the Iranian festival of Nowruz, which marks the arrival of spring. In the video, Obama says the U.S. is prepared to end the strained relations if Tehran tones down its combative rhetoric.

"This process will not be advanced by threats. We seek instead engagement that is honest and grounded in mutual respect," Obama said.

A press adviser to Iran's president downplayed the video, saying "minor changes will not end the differences."

Ali Akbar Javanfekr told the Iranian state-run English-language Press TV satellite station that Iran will never forget U.S. meddling in Tehran's affairs. The two countries broke off relations after the 1979 Islamic revolution.

Good morning.

This may have been commented on already, but what the hell:

I avoided last night's POTUS Laugh-In like the plague (okay, I watched his grand entrance out of morbid curiosity, then switched off), and so am somewhat surprised to read today that Obama - and even Leno - were making at least a little sense about the AIG bonus double secret probation tax:


President Barack Obama reacted coolly to a House bill that would use the tax system to try and confiscate nearly all the bonuses paid to American International Group Inc. employees.

It's important, he said, not to "lurch from thing to thing" in trying to address the nation's big problems.

"Look, I understand Congress' frustrations," he said on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno." But he suggested that legislators were being more vindictive than constructive...

Mr. Leno was even more negative to the House plan, saying it "kind of scared me."

"If the government decides they don't like a guy, all of the sudden hey we're going to tax you, and, boom, and it passes, that's seems a little scary," he said. "It was frightening to me as an American that Congress or whoever could decide I don't like that group, let's pass a law and tax them 90 percent."


Hear that, Killgore? You could actually learn something from Jay Leno.

Didn't he keep bison on his ranch instead of cattle, bcz as an envirowacko he believed that they farted less? He is a commie in capitalist clothing.

I imagine he kept bison because they garner more per lb at the slaughter house and they take less work in the cold MT winters.

He tried to fence off some gvmt land access roads that crossed his property and FWAP kept cutting up his fences.

Obama's First Round NCAA Bracket A Bust

After the first day of the NCAA basketball tournament, President Obama's bracket appears to be a bust.

The president, a self-described basketball junkie, managed to only pick 11 of 16 games correctly--or 69 percent.

CBS 2 imported Obama's picks, which were originally made for ESPN, into its Bracket Challenge game. Currently, the president ranks in the 27th percentile among all players.

Several contestants managed to pick every game correctly. CBS 2 traffic reporter Susan Carlson, who admits to watching very little basketball, picked 15 of 16 games correctly.

He got beat by a traffic reporter.

I'm not a big Duke fan, but I recognize their ability and I have them getting into the final four. I don't know if they'll make it, but they always seem to do so well in the tournament.

I have them to win.

win one for the lacrosse players!

At the rate my current and future wealth is evaporating thanks to DC, I expect to be working post-mortem.

I am actually ALMOST speechless about your turd-head asshole President.

Comparing Americans to suicide bombers, insulting disabled people and butt-licking Iran in the space of 24 hours. He is making America the laughing stock of the western world. Never mind the confirmation of the wrong format of DVDs for the British PM.

Even if you don't like their politics, it's nice to see so many kids interested in converting this country into a communist paradise.

What I meant is that Spring is when the boobies start to come out of hibernation. There's also a classic Onion story about that.

That's why I said it puts a bounce in some people's steps! LOL.

You're right! Reminds me of Germany in the early 20's. A group of fresh faced youngsters trying to "change" the world. They rallied around their leader, a certain German chancellor. Even though you might not agree with his politics, it's good to see so many youth interested.

See any parallels here?

re: #992 Colonel Panik

Yes, there are a number of employers that have gotten busted here in AZ. We passed an initiative about that recently.

Wasn't it already illegal to hire "illegals"? But it does seem like the best way to tackle the problem. If you don't get in trouble for hiring illegals for less money then what is the incentive not to? Except of course, giving your neighbor a job/?
