Apparently realizing fallout from the joke that is called ‘porkulus’ could be quite damaging, that $800 billion dollar bonfire of taxpayer money; the White House is doing what governments do, move to quickly restrict criticism. It’s the way of thugs and two bit tin horn dictators. Read the rest of this entry »
Conventional wisdom, especially that driven by the biased media, is often so spectacularly wrong it’s breathtaking. The mentality of the herd, how can that be. Simple, when the ‘head lemming’ goes over, the rest just follow behind, until they are all laying at the bottom of the cliff.
Today’s must read:
A new laser technology could make a light as bright as a 100-watt bulb consume less electricity than a 60-watt bulb while remaining far cheaper and radiating a more pleasant light than a fluorescent bulb can. Exploring the nano-world.
From the University of Rochester press release:
An ultra-powerful laser can turn regular incandescent light bulbs into power-sippers, say optics researchers at the University of Rochester. The process could make a light as bright as a 100-watt bulb consume less electricity than a 60-watt bulb while remaining far cheaper and radiating a more pleasant light than a fluorescent bulb can.
The laser process creates a unique array of nano- and micro-scale structures on the surface of a regular tungsten filament—the tiny wire inside a light bulb—and theses structures make the tungsten become far more effective at radiating light.
The findings will be published in an upcoming issue of the journal Physical Review Letters.
England is out front on this, we are following along behind:
Britain on Thursday became the first big economy to be warned in the financial crisis that it might lose its top-notch credit rating, in a move that raised fears of possible downgrades for other large industrialised nations. Read the rest of this entry »
— White guys, formally known as bubbas, are the problem, to be gotten rid of by any means necessary. This is why the economic crash is not being addressed seriously by the progressives, like Obama, it is afterall, mostly white guys who are losing their wealth.
And that goes double for getting a bigot like Sotomayor put on the Supreme Court, where the legal dunce can carry out the progressives form of reverse racism. You see, jurisprudence is not what is wanted, it’s the reverse racism.
The general feeling amongst progressives, “white guys are too comfy in their jobs, family and lives to seriously fight for anything” — Yes that is a direct quote from a bunch of Washington progressives, who didn’t know I wasn’t one of them at the time.

Obama’s Uncle: He’s Using Buchenwald for Political Purpose
“We had never talked about that before.”
Barack Obama’s great uncle offered some blunt language as to why his nephew is visiting the memorial at the former Buchenwald concentration camp next week during his trip to Europe and the Middle East.
“This is a trip that he chose, not because of me I’m sure, but for political reasons,” Charles Payne told the German magazine Spiegel. “Perhaps his visit also has something to do with improving his standing with (German Chancellor) Angela Merkel. She gave him a hard time during his campaign and also afterwards.” Read the rest of this entry »
UPDATE: Looks like it was a hoax, Mancow faked the whole skit. Gawker has the evidence.
Waterboarding — Lots of people have done it, our Navy Seals do it as matter of course in the SERE training, so now shock jock Mancow has done it.
Should we get the law and prosecute those standing there torturing Mancow? The trainers of our seals? The stupidity of these arguments that waterboarding is torture is just, well, laughable. Maybe sign a petition, or something or other, quick … War crimes have been committed.
“We have so much room for improvement,” she said. “Every aspect of our lives must be subjected to an inventory … of how we are taking responsibility.” — Nanny Pelosi
So is this what you voted for? A Nanny to tell you everything to do in your lives? Fools are easily mislead.
And what happens if you choose NO?
House Republicans put the data together.
Today, Barack Obama told the public, “In these last few months, the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act has saved or created nearly 100 — 150,000 jobs”? Only a Democrat sees government jobs as real jobs. It’s a real laugher.
Unless and until the jobs loss stops, the economy will never turn around.
