No, I'm not talking about the trillions of dollars wasted on the Lightweights so called stimulus plan.
But some of the money waste probably came from there, too as some kind of political payback to the abortion industry in the guise of Embryonic Stem Cell Research. This HUGE deal the Libs made of the advances they could make by using dead babys to cure ailments in adults, except they just can't get it to work right.
I just got another round of shots in my elbow and it hurts worse than when they split my left arm open to repair some nerve damage. I have to go in for a meeting and to look at a difficult job, then it's Darvocets for me.
Obama says the first couple is "not that far removed from what most Americans are going through." He tells the network "it was just a few years ago that we had high credit card balances, we had two kids, thinking about college. We had our own retirement accounts, wondering if we were going to be able to get enough assets in there."
...And you paid off those credit card bills with your fist book advance and Michelle's no-show job. ...Your kids thinking of college were what- five and seven at the time? ...You don't need to worry about your retirement now, with your state and Federal pensions enshrined in stone.
Jezus, the guy can't even play off being average believably.
On the one hand, we have the CEO of a multinational company that's historically been demonized by the Liberal media -one Tony Hayward of BP who has worked almost continually from day ONE to correct a massive problem his company caused
On the other hand is the media darling - our own Barack Obama who only turned his Lazerlike focus on the gulf problem after being called out by the gibbering idiot James Carvel two months into the problem -interrupting at least one golf outing in the process of making a photo op off the golf course.
Now BP Tony is out and Prez Kickass is taking a break from showing Americans that they can relax and still be focused on fixing the problems buy taking another vacation.
When this hits our health care system...is there going to be a sekrit codeword you can put on your admitting papers to let them know you voted for Obama? That way they'll take a little better care of you than normal or scoot you up half way in line to just after the ones they owe favors to.
Apparently the San Antonio airport is getting the high tech version of X-ray glasses (yes you CAN see through her clothes!!!).
My back-up station KTSA55AM was having a little discussion about them. I seems that the pervs at the TSA wherever this unattended 14 year old girl was forced her to go through that backscatter X-ray machine where she was promptly patted down. Not so surprisingly, mom had a problem with this. After contacting the TSA bureaucracy, she was basically told to get over it because it was random.
I don't fly. Firstly because I don't have to, secondly if it's anywhere within about a five hour drive- I can get there in about the same amount of time with A LOT less hassles, and it's cheaper.
...Oh yeah, mom was also told that it was random under the local airports security detail.
NOW, what I'm getting to is this. These new backscatter machines are supposedly random as decided by the local boss. You can use it or get felt up. If there were a way to connect the names (if they keep the randomly selected) and you could connect them with faces....what do you think the ratio of hot babes selected VS wrinkled grannies or hairy guys will show?
Because, in addition to some unelected and uncaring bureaucrat making the final decision on ALL loans, your cards will now be monitored. But don't worry! It's not like anyone in the .gov would do anything politically motivated with the knowledge that you bought that sheep costume at 2AM in Vegas if they wanted something from you.
Me, I got lazy and use a debit card for most things now. I guess I'll be going back to cash.
"Mr. P- we see that you fill your truck up two to three times a week. Don't you think that's quite a bit more gasoline than you need to be using? ...And this beer that you buy too much of..."
I'm watching James May's 'Toy stories'- in which Captain Slow of 'Top Gear' fame makes toys of Olde England relevant today.
I only found out that the famed 'plasticine porters' of a certain Beatles hit were not some Lladro-like figures, but made of Play-do.
Now, he's got engineering students making a full size bridge out of their version of an Erector set. They made it in their lab, and in setting it up, the mild steel started to bend,,, and showed the legendary British 'stiff upper lip' has bypassed this generation of guys (the girls swore and the guys started crying)- so they had to rebuild it.
And yes, captain Slow walked across some famous canal in Liverpool via a child's intellectual toy.
BTW...what's up with the Kindle ad and the blonde babe who's no longer going through her adventures?
As a matter of fact, Mort Zuckerman, Babs Streisand and the rest of the Leftist Hollywood Liberals have been fighting for this exact thing for the last forty years.
Now that Prez Kickass is delivering on the complete state takeover of every private enterprise they can think of-they are starting to get a clue. It's not that their belief system is changing so much. but that it's THEIR pocket that's going to be taking a hit.
He's even unintentionally agreeing with Bush in his thoughts on Fanny Mac: but most glaringly in forcing Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, and the Federal Housing Administration to back loans to people who could not afford them. And not to mention the role of the Securities and Exchange Commission, which in 2004 sanctioned higher levels of leverage for financial firms, from 12 times equity to over 30 times equity.
If the O-man keeps up, his Liberal base might even want to reform Social Security.
They were having a promo for their local *CRIMESTOPPERS!!!!ONE!!!* production.
In which they decided to go manno a manno reporter-a-miscreant on why they're driving with a revoked drivers licence.
If I were stupid enough to get my CDL yanked and a TeeWee reporter from CH-4 WOAI came up to me to get into my face about driving with a revoked licence, I'd just have to ask,,, "Why is driving undocumented so much worse than being an undocumented alien?...You HATER!"
Because, you know...'nobody is illegal!- why are you targeting ME? Because you want to make an example of me!!???!!!! HELP! They're violating my civil rights to drive as I want, wether I have documentation or not.....NOBODY IS ILLEGAL!!!!eleven!!!!
I was going to mention the city, but there's not much going on there, so someone could easily connect this blog to the company.
Anyway, this largish city in south west Texas isn't -as far as I know- a hub of anything, much less an oil hub ,,,yet this isolated city has gas prices below San Antonio and surrounding areas.
Now we're on day 83 of the blow-out and like day 45 of Prez Kickass' complete ban on any drilling in American territorial waters. Now, as long as I've been aware of gas prices- my entire adult life, every time there's an interruption, or possible interruption of supply- - -the Exxon Valdez, troubles in the mid-east, a pipeline blow-out,we're paying more because of the changeover to winter blend, we're changing over to summer blend, Abdullah's camel didn't fart right--- gas has gone up by a quarter in a week.
BUT, Captain GreenPeace has shut down almost a third of our domestic oil supply and gas is holding steady, or even dropping.
Why? I don't remember gas prices holding steady when the bottom fell out after the economy cratered after 9-11. In the past thirty years, every time a camel sneezed, the gas prices spiked up.
Am I going to have to mark my post as another "Can I call them, or what?" label and drag it up on Nov. 3rd when the Dems get voted out en-mass and gas hits $5/gal when the Republicans take over in Jan.? Because that's all I can see is the same Big Oil that shovelled money into 0bama's campaign holding back their prices to help save as many Dems as possible.
Hey BP, how's that crapload of money you sent to the DNC helping your company now?
That would happen if it were the Chimpy BusHitler regeime that was censoring the intraubZ. But since this is "the most open and ethical" administration 2.0, we'll be hearing about how freedom of expression is overblown anyway.
Not that I'm saying an employer can't have a say in where their property is going on the internet, just that it's an awful subjective way to go about it.
Hey! Are they blocking the pr()n channels, or is the MMSA still looking at midgit penguin prawn instead of inspecting drilling rigs?
Class, this will be testable. Read this article thoroughly, and tell us
1- What was the icon they were trying to ban. 2- Aside from being a Liberal Asstard, what were you trying to teach the kids? That is OK to put someone out of business 'for the children' because YOU don't like what they're legally able to do?
I mean, we're going to send the kids up to speechify about ,,,something still not pictured in the article...that's harmful to kids? But we know it's so stupid that we don't even tell what IT is?
Kind of like 'smokefree San Antonio' that wan'ts to ban a legal product because we don't like it.
As I heard on a local rock station on Sun AM on the way to get the weeks grorceries.... 'we have statistics and stuff' anyone who doesn't want a blanket ban on smoking is a NAZI, but we don't call them that.
I didn't know that Louisiana had over 7,500 miles of coastline.
And that only 180 of them are oil infested. You can read all about it here in the highly fact-checked ABC News site with their layers and layers of fact checkers and editorial oversite. It's the third page, middle para.
If LA has that many mile of coastline, I wonder what Texas has?
HEY! If LA has that many miles of coastline... no wonder Captain KickAss and his NIS/ICE leader gave up on trying to secure a boarder that's like, 20 times as long.
Gotta start working on that deficit somewhere, ya know...
Which I was going to make a post about- including 'being the most open and ethical bussiness out here' after I got done making breakfast. (Really, I was. Would I lie to you? Srysly)
Then I started reading the article...
which went all the way to the fourth para for this-- "The difference between the Apple model and the Google model is easy to understand - they're completely different. The Google model is completely open.
And again- " We like our strategy a lot because it's consistent with our values, which are the openness and the open platform and the web platform."
And finally the usual you can trust us in the last para: Google, Schmidt says, is kept in check by its customers and by the competition: “All of our testing indicates that the vast majority of people are perfectly happy with our policy. And this message is the message that nobody wants to hear so let me say it again: the reality is we make decisions based on what the average user tells us and we do check. And the reason that you should trust us is that if we were to violate that trust people would move immediately to someone else.
Where? Because anywhere I go on AlGores intratubz, I can find a blue "G" somewhere on the site.
