The Big Picture

So how screwed up is this country? Let me count the ways:

Palin and the Tea Party have disappeared off the face of the Earth when they have the  potential to change Politics as we know it.

The CIA is kowtowing to Pakistan over drone strikes when Pakistan has demonstrated a total in ability to control their own borders and Secret Service.

Kinda like the Federal Government suing the States that are tired of them  not enforcing the immigration laws in this country……………

The White House issues a statement that they have turned over substantial amounts of documents in the Solyndra scandal and expect us to not make the  distinction that “substantial” does NOT equal ALL. Yes we are dumb.

A 14 year old is expelled from school for giving a class mate a hug, because they have a zero tolerance policy. Zero tolerance policy simply means the Administrators and teachers are to stupid to figure out the difference between affection and harassment. I am robot.

The Justice Department has reversed itself on it’s decision that it is OK to lie to people about whether they have certain information.  Duhhh.

Lindsay Lohan is still bouncing between probation, community service, and doing jail time. Oh and Playboy decided to cancel her shoot.

The ex Democratic Governor of NJ, after having nearly bankrupted his state has bankrupted MF Global and is resigning. Wonder who he will bankrupt next?

Obama  flies to Europe to tell them they MUST solve their financial crisis………Help me, I’m laughing so hard I peed my pants!

Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae continue to enjoy taxpayer support while continually bleeding money yet their high mucky mucks rake in millions in bonus’

The Post Office issue forever stamps but now wants to raise the cost of a first class letter…………..

Are we having fun yet?

 

Occupy Wall Street Protests

Whats REALLY behind these gatherings? This movement grew much to fast and to explosive;y for it to be just dissatisfaction with Wall Street. Somewhere there is an entity” that  is orchestrating and pushing this movement. What is it’s purpose and goal? Who stands to gain from all of the uproar?

Some have touted the answer that  Obama will gain because the news is focused on these people rather than his failed economic policy.  While that may be a side effect I doubt that it will have much effect come Nov. ’12.

Is there a connection between the growing violence in these demonstrations and the paid instigators that made brief, ineffective appearances at the Tea Party rallies? Is violence the ultimate goal so that martial law can be declared?

Is the FBI doing any digging into the situation?

Morgan Freeman Calls Tea Party Racist

I saw a partial interview of Morgan Freeman the other day where he was being asked why he called the Tea Party a racist organization. Now, I like Morgan Freeman’s acting but how does he figure this out? When pressed he lamely mumbled something about the Tea Party wanting to cut minority programs but couldn’t give an example. Nor has anyone else and this accusation keeps coming up over and over.

I suppose if you say that the Tea Party wants to end government  waste and that a lot of the most wasteful and bloated Federal programs are aimed at minorities then maybe. It seems childish though to have to call an organization racist, just because you might have to go out and get a job, quit having kids or sell your new car because they took away your free housing, welfare, food stamps and beer money.

Democratic comments on the Tea Party

Yesterday the Dem’s blasted the Tea party again. So whats new?

 

What they don’t acknowledge is that in the last round of elections only half of the seats were up for grabs. In 2012 the other half as well as the Presidency will be contested. With the amount of seats won by Tea party members already and the extreme dissatisfaction of the American  people with the performance of Congress, to borrow Mr. T’s phrase;

“I pity the poor fools”
