Nancy Pelosi Ponders Retirement

Alexandra Pelosi, Nancy Pelosi's daughter says her mother wants to leave Congress–she is only sticking around for her 'donors'.

Alexandra sputtered, "She would retire right now, if the donors she has didn’t want her to stay so badly. They know she wants to leave, though. They think she’s destined for the wilderness. She has very few days left. She’s 71, she wants to have a life, she’s done. It’s obligation, that’s all I’m saying." Yikes, what does 'she is destined for the wilderness' mean?

Recall, Nancy groveled, clinging to a sliver of power after the Democrats mid-term debacle. The erratic, irrational rhetoric from Nancy is bad enough, but now her daughter is shooting from her hip too? How much koolaide can one family drink?

Nancy has done her damage, she has done all any one grandma can do to wreck her own country, so why not get out?

Well, we can still hope. Should Nancy Pelosi possess the tiniest impulse of ethics in her addled mind, she should ponder the possibility, and do her donors a solid - QUIT!

Pelosi’s Office Denies Everything

Christmas Food To Fear

Beware the fibrous vituperative vegetables of Christmas yule - the ones that turn your rear into a flatulent flesh-tuba.  Who did that? Dad, the dog, mom?.

First in the offenders lineup is the Jerusalem Artichoke.  The fiber in one of these missiles is twice as high as the second place pretender. 

Parsnip places second.  The humble green spidery clump really doesn't classify as food at all. Parsnip is a garnishment meant to be seen and not heard; chomped down by the unsuspecting in a frenzy of 'eat everything in sight' madness. The material races thru the digestive tract like an unstoppable rebel force.

Brussels sprouts bust in at third.  Nothing like a sprout, more like a tight little titan of leafy turf transforming readily into miasma.  The eventual outcome reminds one of a colorful aroma of fermented shoe-laces in a vat of apple-cider vinegar.

Fourth, give way to the Christmas Cabbage, blanched, boiled, or beaten, the cabbage will have you whistling in short order - remember the barbarian hoards?.

Finally, fifth, the cantankerous cauliflower. Why anyone wants to eat this vegetable remains a mystery. Cauliflower is as dense as a bowling ball, textured like a frozen human brain, and presents the color of carton of milk two months past the expiration date.  Even soaked for half a lifetime, nothing penetrates the fiber in this malformed missive. The crazed cauliflower consumer chews and chews till the pooper-pipers price is paid.

'A possible cure for flatulence is to add dill or caraway seeds to vegetables such as cabbage when cooking, or if all else fails have a cup of peppermint tea after your meal.' a Vegetarian Society spokesman sputtered.

One last important tip - never, under any circumstance, in no way, shape or form, pull dad's finger - its a trap, a trick, one of the oldest in the book. Just don't do it!

Romney Picks Chris Christie As Running Mate

George H.W. Bush the senior endorsed Mitt Romney today. Cool.

Even more fun? GOP Gov. Chris Christie, who was courted for months by conservatives, saying 'no' for months to running himself, may well accept the VP slot when Romney calls on him.

Of that possibility Christie said 'The fact is if Governor Romney comes to me and wants to talk to me about that, we'll have a full conversation about that and then [my wife] Mary Pat and I will make that decision about what we want to do with our future'. Gold - Score!

Of course a few things need to happen before that can happen, like Romney wins the nomination, and Romney really does ask him, and Christie finally says 'yes', and all that stuff.

Christie cautions that Romney would not 'presume' to line up a VP while he is still trying to be P, himself.

The GOP Primary circus is tiring. A Romney/Christie ticket would certainly setup the election we all deserve and expect. Two of the toughest job making, union busting conservatives, against the roll-over wimps Obama/Biden. I like it already.

IBM Sees Mind Controlled PC's In Five Years

Forget the mouse, the keyboard, even your voice - go directly to the cerebral cortex and do not pass go.

'Mind-reading has been wishful thinking for science fiction fans for decades, but their wish may soon come true,' said an IBM spokesperson. IBM is bringing mind-control to PC's and cell phones where, 'You would just need to think about calling someone, and it happens.'

The current trend is to use the voice or eyes to move the mouse, but lets face it, why keep fooling around with the middle-man. Using thought would revolutionize all of it, passwords, document writing, even graphics - the mind boggles.

Of course, they would require some kind of virtual 'delete-key'.  Men would end up with a lot of porn mixed in with company financial reports, and calls to the boss.

Brain-computer interface will happen, and it will be the 'next big thing' no doubt.

Mexico's Mayans Launch Apocalypse Countdown

Is it that time in an epoch again?  You know, when the end of days are near, and everyone starts to check-out early it does give get your attention.  Well, the Mayans are up this time, along with the I Ching, and Nostradamus.

Launch date 12/21/12...  The last day of the Mayan calendar.  On that day the full alignment of the Earth with the Sun and the creamy center of the Milky Way's giant black hole - aptly named the 'Black Rift' completes.  The Sun will enter the 'Age Of Aquarius'. All of it predicted centuries ago by those in the know.

Some think it's party like it's 1999 - apparently Mexico's tourist bureau sees the doomsday as a once in the life of a planet's marketing opportunity.  According to some of Mexico's archeologists there is no need for panic, the last day of the 1,300 year old calendar is really just the beginning of a new one.  Others aren't so sure.

"The Maya are viewed by many westerners as exotic folks that were supposed to have had some special, secret knowledge," said Maya scholar Sven Gronemeyer. "What happens is that our expectations and fears get projected on the Maya calendar."

Well, expect the worst, and smile when it doesn't happen my grannie used to say - or did she say when the worst happens, smile?

The Schizophrenic Fight Over Tax Cuts

Reid wants the voters to think the GOP is 'against Bush tax cuts'. Reid expects voters to be push-overs as he 'plays' the 11th hour deadline.

Democrats trying to paint the GOP as tax hikers is ironic given the Bush Tax Cuts originated with the GOP.

Reid knows that a 60-day extension does nothing to establish stability in the private sector, or help payroll earners in the long run.  Remember, Democrats don't really like tax cuts, they just want to twist the concept to make the GOP appear to be against them.

Will it work? Will voters see thru Reid's party tricks?

Obama is coaching Holder to use the race card to deflect calls for his resignation.  The race card worked for Obama in 2008 against Hillary, so why not spread it around.  Obama exploiting race is a defect in his character.  But then, we knew Obama lacked character.

Obama made a stunning pronouncement on 60-minutes over the weekend - comparing his 'record' to past presidents claiming to be 4th best.  The delusional Obama comes to the fore.

Voters will need to be extra vigilant this time.  One example is to cut thru the noise in the US Labor Dept jobless number. The real jobless rate is over 10% when you account for those leaving the job market.

Obama has a billion bucks, and a failed record.  In the bizzaro world of politics all that means to the unethical is to simply pronounce a bad record a good record, and keep the voters looking 'over there'.

Record Texas Drought: 600K Cattle Killed

The record drought in Texas has already cost the state over 600,000 head of cattle, representing about 12% of the herd.  Oklahoma also saw a 12% reduction in their herds.

China's demand for food has so far pushed corn and wheat prices up 50% over the last 6-months.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture estimates beef prices will go up 6% in 2012. Beef prices were up 9% in 2011.

The U.S. is the world third largest consumer of beef per capita at 85.5 pounds per year. Uruguay is first at 137 pounds per capita.

Over 100 million are on some kind of government food program, or depend on local food banks and shelters to eat.    See why Obama has reestablished horses for slaughter and human consumption?

China will be driving up prices trying to top the rising prices in the USA as demand remains steady.  The squeeze in the supermarkets will be felt next year as incomes continue to decline, and those long-term jobless ranks swell.

Athiest Christopher Hitchens Bites The Dust

The Brits are an empty people these days.  After centuries of chasing others around in their own countries, and nearly being obliterated by Adolf Hitler, the ex-empire now produces a series of banal, mouthy, pompous people who foist themselves to the forefront of liberal hypocrisy.

One of the most oddly defiant Brits to do that was Christopher Hitchens. A self-proclaimed atheist ready to 'struts and frets his hour upon the stage' and never considered that, as Shakespeare had aptly noted some centuries ago 'there are more things in heaven and earth...than are dreamt of in your philosophy.'.

Today, at 62, Hitchens curled up in a Houston hospital bed, far from his birth country, and pooped out his last chunk of rage - dead.

Diagnosed with esophageal cancer, Hitchens remained profane to the end likening God to a ‘celestial dictatorship’.

Hitchens is testing his hypothesis that 'God Is Not Great', a book he penned slamming the faithful, and reassuring the sinful that they have nothing to fear. As with we all, this bitter little man has blacked-out (his hope), or is answering for his mistakes (his fear); no question he has his answers now.

The man who once referred to Mother Teresa of Calcutta as a 'fanatical Albanian dwarf' was no stranger to acting like an ass. Insulting saints seemed oddly preferable in his mutant mind, than simply accepting his obvious sense of worthlessness.

Hitchens was an angry man, in fact, and unafraid to spew his anger at any turn. Like many left wingers, Hitchens was filled with arrogance, and a self-proclaimed false sense of heroism, lamenting his disease 'So far, I have decided to take whatever my disease can throw at me, and to stay combative even while taking the measure of my inevitable decline...'.

Well, death takes us all - for Hitchens it just came a little sooner. In all his shallow existence, this is a guy that chose to be pissed off, rather than being generous.  Hitchens will not long be remembered, the last laugh is on him, isn't it...

Israel: Iran Must Chose Between A Bomb Or Survival

"We believe that in order to stop the Iranian military nuclear project, the regime in Tehran should face a dilemma -- whether to have a bomb or to survive," Strategic Affairs Minister Moshe Yaalon told reporters in Jerusalem.

The prelude to war is the war of words. As Teddy Roosevelt famously noted - "Speak softly and carry a big stick". In this case, the 'softly' is getting louder.

The abrupt pullout of US military in Iraq today is incredibly bad timing. Even after WWII in Europe, presence of US military was necessary to ensure the peace. Obama has learned nothing from history or his predecessors. The sacrifices in Iraq may be made in vain if Iraq falls into civil war.

How does the vacuum left in Iraq affect the looming war between Israel and Iran? Iraq sits between these countries. The US exit opens the air-space in Iraq to Israeli warplanes - there is no Iraqi air-force, no one to stop them. Likewise, the Iraqi land and air-space is open to Iran - once having waged a bloody war with Iraq, Iran is poised to move into the region, bringing with them a far more deadly weapon than they had in 1980.

The truth about Iran's nuclear weapons can no longer be ignored.  Imagine Mexican drug-lords getting nuclear weapons?  Would the US simply wait for NATO, or Israel to come help out?  Israel has no choice, and the window is closing.

Obama, thus far, appears impotent in regard to Iran.  Israel cannot afford the luxury of rolling over as Cater and Obama have done - the world must prepare for this ugly thing to happen.

China Hikes Tariffs On US-Made Car Imports

China’s commerce ministry said on Wednesday that it was taking action in response to damage to its car industry from US “dumping and subsidies”.

A trade-war started by Obama is widening to include all cars made in the USA.  Auto makers with plants in the US include Mercedes, BMW, Honda, GM, Chrysler, and Ford.

Since 2009, China consumes more cars than the US. Faced with trade tariffs, manufacturers building cars in the US will shift production to plants in China.

 “The move shows that China is always capable of intervening politically in its markets,” said Juergen Pieper, a Frankfurt-based analyst with Bankhaus Metzler. “The automobile industry is very dependent on China for growth...".

Obama bails out GM in order to 'save' union jobs, then pushes China into a trade war.  Now GM and Chrysler push production into China - bailout nullified!  Obama strikes again.

Time Magazine - Tawdry, Trivial, Tautological

The selection of  'Occupy' anarchists as 'person of the year' over the real heroes of the country, like Seal Team Six, proves again the disdain the editors of Time Magazine have for the country.

Recall last year it was Facebook's Zuckerberg that got the honor.  Zuckerberg, the goofy pimple-faces man-child is symbolic of what a Time editor would admire, true - but what about the readers?

On January 2, 1939, Time Magazine published its annual Man of the Year issue - Adolf Hitler won.  So we have to assume the goons at the magazine knows what their talking about, laughing.

Time Magazine, like Newsweek, and the New York Times have fallen off, as they should.  Fairness would require that any media, print, radio, or television go bankrupt when they fail to meet the minimum standards for relevance, and responsibility.  Unless they are propped up, as NPR has been.

Sadly, there is no quick way to bankrupt bias.  The bigots on the left are piling up a trail of dead bodies failing to gain a public audience.  Examples include Air America, NBC, Newsweek, CNN, and MSNBC - all on the edge of, or have already gone bye-bye.

Still, a few relic, irrelevant, babble-merchants are running their mouths, and damaging the unwary.  Time Magazine will eventually join the other wrecks at the bottom of the media sea. Karma is a bitch.

Realtors: Home Sales Numbers Gamed

U.S. home sales data from 2007 through last October counted each house twice. What?

Early this year, the National Association of Realtors was accused of over-counting existing homes sales by CoreLogic who insisted the numbers were off by at least 20%.

The Realtors ignored CoreLogic and now admit the error is 100% - even worse.  The NAR plans to reissue the corrected numbers next week - look for a stock market dive on that day.

Fannie Mae/sub-prime lending crashed the housing market in 2005. Now we have a zombie-like construction industry.  The over supply of homes has also been made worse by Obama's bailout, and foreclosure aid - delaying the inevitable.

With this news, the grim reality that housing will not recover for decades is clearly a hard reality now.

Eric Holder 'No Confidence' Vote Looms

AZ GOP Rep. Paul Gosar filed a resolution in the House yesterday calling for a vote of  “no confidence” in Attorney General Eric Holder.

If passed, the vote would be an initial step to formally removing him from office.

“It is imperative that the citizens of our nation have confidence in our Attorney General,” Gosar detailed in the resolution text. “After months of evasive answers, silence and outright lies it is time that Congress speak up on behalf of the many people who have or will fall victims to the firearms in the flawed gunrunning operation Fast & Furious.”

The 56th member of congress called for Holder’s resignation today, joining two in the senate, and four of the GOP Obama challengers.

Holder faces a Congressional Black Caucus split. A CBC staffer said yesterday that the “general feeling” of most caucus members is that the congressional investigation into Operation Fast and Furious is warranted. But they would not comment on how deeply they see Holder's role, or whether Holder should step down.

Eric Holder joins Janet Reno in disgrace. Holder worked in the Reno DOJ, ironically, where he advocated the pardon of Marc Rich.  Rich was the convicted poster boy for white-collar crooks getting big payback from Bill Clinton.

Holder would be wise to put his ego and swagger aside, and resign - at least he could preserve a little self-respect that way.

Canada, Russia And Japan Quit Kyoto

Canada has withdrawn from the Kyoto Protocol Treaty.

The move is to save $14 billion in fines and to pursue vast resources in oil sands Kyoto would curtail.

The USA is the largest and most prominent nation in the world to have never ratified the Kyoto treaties.

Canada is the first nation to formally renounce the protocol. Japan and Russia will not renew at the end of 2012.

Canadian Environment Minister Peter Kent noted 'To meet the targets under Kyoto for 2012 would be the equivalent of either removing every car, truck, ATV, tractor, ambulance, police car and vehicle of every kind from Canadian roads or closing down the entire farming and agriculture sector and cutting heat to every home, office, hospital, factory and building in Canada.'

Greenpeace Canada spokesman Mike Hudema complains that the conservative Harper government 'has imposed a death sentence on many of the world's most vulnerable populations by pulling out of Kyoto'

In Durban, South Africa this week 200 countries and Barbara Boxer from California sat brewing up a replacement for Kyoto to go into effect in 2015.  Since the USA, Canada, Japan and Russia are out, why bother.

Had science supported the worlds left-wingers on this issue, then destroying the world's economy might be justified, but since there is no climate Armageddon, why persist in the wipe-out? Don't ask, the mind of a liberal is incomprehensible to sensible people.

Tea Party Calls Obama A Skunk

The Kansas-based Patriot Freedom Alliance calls Obama a 'skunk'.

The website shows Obama next to a skunk with the caveat: 'The skunk has replaced the eagle as the new symbol for the president. It is half black, it is half white, and almost everything it does, stinks.'

The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People's (NAACP) Darrell Pope says it's a 'blatant statement of racism'. Hey Darrell the term 'colored' is considered racist and demeaning too.

Recall Ray Nagins referring to New Orleans as the 'chocolate city' - where was the NAACP on that one?  Even better, find NPR, the taxpayer funded bastion of left-wing bias referring to Washington, DC as the 'chocolate city with vanilla suburbs' - NAACP?

Tea Party supporter Chuck Sankey said,  'It just makes a point that we're in trouble and what's happening doesn't smell right. That's what it means to me.'  Chuck was asked about the black/white reference as it relates to Obama's genetics, he said: 'Isn't that the truth? 'What's wrong with the truth?'

With the worst performance in presidential history how does Obama get reelected?  Obama can't run on his record, and he didn't keep the jobless rate below 8%.  Obama frames a false choice between the bad (him) over the more bad (GOP).

Will Obama also play his race card again, or will he just let the NAACP do it for him this time?
Is that a black and white choice?  Great, now the blog has the NAACP upset.

Woman Denied Food Stamps Kills Self, Shoots Children

A 38-year-old woman entered the Texas Health and Human Services Commission office in downtown Laredo this week, with her two kids, a 10-year-old boy and a 12-year-old girl.

She demanded to speak to a supervisor, and when confronted, pulled out a handgun taking a male supervisor hostage.  After two hours of negotiations, the woman released the hostage, but refused to come out.

"About 11:45PM, she hung up the phone with negotiators, and a little bit later, negotiators heard three shots," police said. "What had happened was that she had shot each of her children once and herself once." The kids were airlifted to a hospital in critical condition.

Politics aside, this is a monumental tragedy.  The faces of poverty not seen in the media are nonetheless out there, barely crawling along at subsistence levels.

Obama has the worst poverty rate since the Great Depression, some estimate at least 100 million are unable to buy food to feed their kids. Officially, there are almost 50 million on federal food stamps, and millions more are daily visiting local food banks.

The USA should not have starving people.  The cruel reality is, there are now millions in dire straights, unacceptable.

Obama’s Top 10 Violations Of US Constitution

Obama's presidency has been a disaster - the wreckage of a nation, a consistent pattern of defiance for the rule-of-law, and the US Constitution are his legacy.

Obama is not shy using his executive powers. Hundreds of crippling EPA, and DOE regulations have been issued without the consent of congress.

Obama is plainly violating his oath of office by not enforcing the borders, and by selling guns to foreign agents attempting to harm citizens of the USA (Guns For Drug Lords).

Obama's top 10 violations of the US Constitution:
  1. Mandate To Purchase A Product - Obamacare (Commerce Clause)
  2. Medicaid Coercion Of States  (10th amendment)
  3. IPAB - Obamacare Death Panel (Separation of Powers)
  4. Chrysler/GM Bailout Bond Holder Prioty Violation (Takings and Due Process Clauses)
  5. Dodd/Frank Administrative Overreach (Due Process and Separation Of Powers)
  6. Offshore Drilling Ban - Struck Down By Fed Judge, Obama Tried To Override and Withdrew
  7. Political Speech Disclosure For Fed Contractors (First Amendment)
  8. Taxing Political Contribution - IRS (First Amendment)
  9. Graphic Tobacco Warning (First Amendment)
  10. Health Care Waivers - Obamacare (Dispensing Powers Not Granted To The President)
Why sidestep the US Constitution, Congress, and the people?  Simple - to re-form the USA into his vision of utopia. The 2012 election is the most important since Lincoln's election in 1860.

    Math Teachers Gone Bad Bad Bad

    Chicago math teacher Lenore Ulaszek, 36, resigned after social workers found a young student living in her apartment.

    Hoffman Estates High School documents show the teenager began living with Ms. Ulaszek in August. School authorities notified the Department of Children and Family Services who ordered an immediate suspension of the errant teacher.

    No charges have been filed thus far, the investigation continues.

    Grandma Strip Searched, Cut By TSA

    When is enough, enough?  TSA is harassing the public, not protecting it.

    Witness yet another outrageous incident involving an elderly air traveler and TSA.

    Lenore Zimmerman, an 84-year-old Long Island grandmother, says she was injured and humiliated during a strip search at Kennedy Airport.

    The elderly Zimmerman was on her way to a flight to Fort Lauderdale, Florida, when TSA forced her to strip down to her underwear. TSA says it was needed due to her defibrillator. What?

    'I walk with a walker- I really look like a terrorist,' she said sarcastically, 'I'm tiny. I weigh 110 pounds- 107 without clothes- and I was strip-searched,' she continued.

    In the past she was patted down by a female TSA officials, somehow this time was different.

    The ordeal begins when Ms. Zimmerman was escorted to a private room where two female officers started removing her clothes. Agents yanked away her metal walker, banging her shin, cutting the grandma. 'My sock was soaked with blood. I was bleeding like a pig,' she said.

    Ms. Zimmerman takes blood thinners, so even a small cut can be life-threatening. Paramedics were called to aid her at that point. Video footage of the incident shows a cold, uncaring molestation by TSA personnel, methodically stripping the old woman, and casually tending to cuts they caused.

    TSA's response? 'Our screening procedures are conducted in a manner designed to treat all passengers with dignity, respect, and courtesy'.  At what point will the public demand an end to this madness, after all, it has been 10 years!

    The question that begs an answer is - how is an 85 year-old invalid a terror suspect?

    No one is watching the store, especially not the vacationing Obama, or the lumbering, incompetent Janet Napolitano.  The flying public needs protection from the protectors!
