“It’s great to have a nice home. It’s great to have nice homes! … It’s great to have a private jet. Anyone that tells you that having your own private jet isn’t great is lying to you.” Oprah Winfrey, to Duke University graduating class, May 2009
One would think that since her candidate is complaining that ‘the rich’ aren’t doing enough, that she would have donated all but a small sum to live upon to charity – or to Washington.
Do as they say, not as they do.
Yeah, well I got nowhere else to go, the ex-wfie took the whole damn planet in the divorce, all I got left is my bones.
Dr McCoy, Star Trek, J.J. Abrams. May 8, 2009
What is the difference between these two videos? (Besides the fact that the blonde looks much better saying it):
Obama on Gay Marriage: ‘I do believe that tradition and my religious beliefs say that marriage is something sanctified between a man and a woman.’
Colin Powell called for a more centrist Republican party on Tuesday (May 5, 2009). Whether Powell is a dupe or a closet statist isn’t clear yet, but it looks to be the later.
Mr. Powell, when you cave in on principles and on the defense of liberty you lose. Perhaps you didn’t realize you were fighting for the freedom Continue reading Powell calls for centrism, cares little for Liberty
“There’s still time for the Minnesota courts to do justice and declare Norm Coleman the winner.” Senator Arlen Specter, (D-PA) to Deborah Solomon, New York Times, paper date May 10, 2009, on-line May 5th. (NYTimes)
“Last night I came to him and I said ‘Arlen what’s all this about?’ And he said ‘I forgot what team I was on.‘” – Senator Reid, CNN with Wolf Blitzer, May 6, 2009, (YouTube video from CNN)
So Senator Specter who stated he wanted the Minnesota court to do “justice” tells Senator Reid later that his answer was because he forgot what team he was on? Since when should justice depend on what political party Specter belongs to? When you have a power-hungry Senator! What an embarrassment to the people of Pennsylvania and the United States.
With more revelations today about the Obama administration bullying secured creditors, it appears that the Obama administration is now channelling Wesley Mouch in their attempts to blackmail and threaten Hank Rearden. This show includes a special appearance by Bertram Scudder, played by Paul Krugman.
Colin Powell called for a more centrist Republican party on Tuesday (May 5, 2009). In part he stated:
Americans do want to pay taxes for services. Americans are looking for more government in their life, not less.
Powell must have missed recent statistics on who pays the taxes, but we can fix his quotation for him:
Some Americans do want OTHER PEOPLE to pay taxes for THEIR services.
There, we fixed that.
In relation to the automobile industry (with the exception of Ford), Buy American is now un-American. That is if you think America stands for freedom, the rule of law, and due process. The UAW and the Obama Administration are acting like mobsters, shaking down senior secured bond-holders in order to pay-off a political constituency, the Unions. The only difference between mobsters and their actions is that instead of having the gun visible, the gun is held by the government.
The hedge funds and other investment vehicles that own the secured debt -which, according to the LAW, gets paid before unsecured holders- have just as many “regular people” albeit one step removed, as do the UAW retirees. But the UAW is a favored group, and a visible group Continue reading UAW and Unions versus the rule of law
