This week, we don’t have to go any further than that great melting pot of talent called New York.
We have a Nobody’s Perfect contest between the people who dress up as Cartoon Characters in Times Square, VS the newly crowned Miss America, who, you guessed it— is from New York!
This is going to be a tough one.
First: Let’s take the dweebs that harass tourists in Times Square. It seems there are ways to make a living, and there are ways to…make a living and not pay taxes. It’s been a long time since I’ve been to Times Square, but since Rudy Giuliani cleaned up the “LIVE SEX ON STAGE!” acts, ALL the men from Wall Street have gone mad…wait….no…. the corporates have moved in and made it a very family friendly experience— you know, a place you can take the kids and watch Batman and Spiderman duke it out…for REAL. Several weeks ago, Spiderman hit a cop, and yes, Batman and Spiderman were arrested for fighting.
Cookie Monster has been known to grab at other things besides cookies.
Since I can’t figure out why Marvel doesn’t sue these people for using their trademarked and copyrighted images, it seems the city of New York has let this go on. But, too many people are showing up dressed as Cartoon Character (70?) and that means too many guys bantering for the same $5.00.
Second: And then you have Miss America…
Kira Kazantsev, the contestant from New York, won the Miss America contest last night, and everybody today is having trouble understanding why. In the talent contest she decided to sit on the floor and play…not four, not fifteen, not twenty, but ONE plastic cup. And that was even hard for her.
I couldn’t figure this out. She had a decent voice, WHY distract from it? You can’t imagine the horror of all New Yorkers…a place that has been known to produce some of the finest talent in the world. And this insult after the fantastic funeral from a REAL New Yorker…Joan Rivers.
I don’t know about you, but it doesn’t make me want to visit Broadway any time soon.
So, who wins the Nobody’s Perfect Award for the week?
Frankly, I didn’t watch the Miss America contest, so I’m going by the video here. I’m guessing she looked pretty good in her swimsuit, or somebody donated a LOT of money to the right judge. While the rest of America wonders what in the world this girl did in college to learn how to play cups besides drink shots of vodka, we can only wonder why she didn’t just sing the song standing on her feet. Still, there have been worse acts to come out of New York…Hillary Clinton for one.
Shame on them. I’m almost tempted to get a plane to New York, dress up as Wonder Woman, and throw them both out of Times Square!
(Ha! Ha!) Sure. Maybe I’ll just follow them around and beat loudly on a plastic cup, while singing “I’m Henry the VII I am!” and drive them crazy enough that they quit and get a minimum wage job like the rest of us.
So, it’s official—- the Mayor of New York wins the Nobody’s Perfect Award for the week.
Be the draconian progressive that you are Mayor De Blasio, and make these people pay taxes like the rest of us, or let Marvel take them to court.
Didn’t you learn ANYTHING in Russia?
Al Gore said that by now, the Antarctic would have completely melted, and Florida, along with the lost chads of Al Gore, would be sunk in a sea of rising (and no doubt very cold) arctic water.
BUT…that hasn’t happened, instead it’s actually gaining ice!
The amount of Antarctic sea ice is at record levels this year, but scientists insists that doesn’t disprove global warming. Satellite images show that almost 12.5 million square miles of sea ice surrounds the continent. That’s the largest amount since records have been kept in the early 1970s. “That is roughly double the size of the Antarctic continent and about three times the size of Australia,” Jan Lieser of the Antarctic Climate and Ecosystems Cooperative Research Centre told ABC. The discovery was made late last week.
But, never fear, the global warming believers have found a global warming answer for that:
They say the sea ice is actually growing around Antarctica because stronger winds, caused by global warming, are facilitating the process by which sea ice is made. The ice is made in “sea ice factories” called polynias.
Yes. I would like to visit these sea ice factories, wouldn’t you? I have no doubt they are being run by the evil Koch brothers who are changing under-minimum wages to Salvadorians to produce this ice that is destroying the democratic dreams of domination.
We can only hope and pray global warming scientists don’t read any Michael Crichton books, because they might get the idea to actually set blasts of dynamite in that manufactured ice, and set a chunk of ice bigger than Australia out to crash into that lovely country.
Remember when Obama, AND John McCain, AND John Kerry, were trying to drum up the American people into going to war in Syria and getting rid of that evil man Assad? We were told that he was evil and gassing his own people, even though, his country had always allowed Christians to reside peacefully. John Kerry used to dine with him.
Many of us remember President George W. Bush making the same case for going into Iraq. Saddam Hussein was evil and cruel to his own people, and had WMDs. It was right after 9/11 and so the people trusted him.
Why didn’t they follow through with it? Obama kept telling us he HAD the power go it alone in Syria.
But weary of wars, the American people had heard it all before and along with the men in uniform, and there was a resounding: NO.
So, like gun control, the politicians have just put it aside for another day…and isn’t that day coming fast again?
Usually wars have to be started with some kind of outrage. The latest beheading of Americans and British journalists are welcomed by Obama. He says, it will make the other Muslims see how evil they are. But it has also infuriated western civilization everywhere, hasn’t it?
(Ask yourself—WHY havn’t those video’s been taken down?)
Now, the logical thing for any leader to do, would be to go get this one man for now…who is making all the gruesome videos. But our leaders will use this somehow to drum up the people into going into Syria. It’s just a matter of days.
If you watched the above video, then you would know by Wesley Clark’s words that taking out Assad is part of the New World Order, which according to this young man, is all about keeping the dollar as the Petro standard.
And what does this have to do with Henry Kissinger, writing an editorial in the Wall Street Journal about the New World Order?
Just how IS that New World Order coming along–- Henry?
“The clash between the international economy and the political institutions that ostensibly govern it also weakens the sense of common purpose necessary for world order. The economic system has become global, while the political structure of the world remains based on the nation-state. Economic globalization, in its essence, ignores national frontiers. Foreign policy affirms them, even as it seeks to reconcile conflicting national aims or ideals of world order.”
Translation: We need a one world currency, and those pesky countries just keep trying to get rid of the dollar. No matter how hard we try, people just don’t want to become one big global nation and get rid of those damn borders. Only OUR banks need to control the markets. And the world is just not co-operating at the moment.
The New World Order, if you need a refresher course, was thought up long ago by the elite bankers and politicians, who decided that in order to spread democracy we need to get into every country’s market, and tie ALL the markets together, making them dependent on one another so that no nation would go to war, ending all wars forevermore.
That was the lofty goal they all toasted. The REAL goal, was about, as usual, control of the money, and who gets the most of it.
Henry also says:
“The prevalent American view considered people inherently reasonable and inclined toward peaceful compromise and common sense; the spread of democracy was therefore the overarching goal for international order. Free markets would uplift individuals, enrich societies and substitute economic interdependence for traditional international rivalries.”
Right. See, Henry puts it into his usual gobbley gook nonsense. Except, globalization hasn’t really worked out to their lofty idea has it? America has been plundered, and China remained communist, and used our American CEO’s to their advantage, putting millions out of work in America. We have 96 million people still unemployed here, and our CEO’s want communism here since it has worked out so well for China.
And globalization has placed China on the road to being Numero Uno. Nevertheless, in a global stock market, it makes no difference if America is number one in anything.
Henry goes on:
“The international order thus faces a paradox: Its prosperity is dependent on the success of globalization, but the process produces a political reaction that often works counter to its aspirations.”
Didn’t expect to sacrifice the United States, Henry?
“To play a responsible role in the evolution of a 21st-century world order, the U.S. must be prepared to answer a number of questions for itself: What do we seek to prevent, no matter how it happens, and if necessary alone? What do we seek to achieve, even if not supported by any multilateral effort? What do we seek to achieve, or prevent, only if supported by an alliance? What should we not engage in, even if urged on by a multilateral group or an alliance? What is the nature of the values that we seek to advance? And how much does the application of these values depend on circumstance.”
“The contemporary quest for world order will require a coherent strategy to establish a concept of order within the various regions and to relate these regional orders to one another.”
Well, I don’t know about you, but Kissinger with these words seems to prove that the guy in this video is EXACTLY right. The United States will use military force to get its way and damn the rest of the world if it won’t join us, because all the leaders in the world are wise to what Henry’s New World Order would mean for them.
Here is what he had to say about Hillary:
“And she ran the State Department in the most effective way that I’ve ever seen.” More effectively than he did, his interviewer asked? “Yes,” he replies, adding: “I was more chaotic.”
(God, don’t you just want to punch something? Pass me that pillow.)
And IF all these things come to pass, IF the United States goes to take out Syria, and Iran, and therefore gets into it with Russia and China, do you really want Hillary Clinton protecting the United States?
Does she have enough buttons?
I’m watching the start of the Hillary can be a great military leader propaganda campaign right now on PBS with the story of the Roosevelt’s. The word “progressives” was said as if an angel was mouthing it from on high.
Hey, the Roosevelt strategy worked with Obama. Before 2016, Hillary will be compared as being smarter and braver than all the Roosevelt’s combined.
So this Nobody asks, as she sits alone in front of her computer tonight, listening to the last crickets of the summer,–if Hillary is allowed to become President…
What difference does it make?
I told you that this kid would be a big star.
Here’s his first commercial.
(Let’s hope he stays off drugs.)
Liberals think all human beings can be socially engineered to their own ideas of utopia—-conservatives want to stick with what has worked in the past. Liberals are idealists, conservatives are pragmatists.
In the book, The Storm Before the Calm, A New Humanity Manifesto, Neale Donald Walsch has just the way to get all humanity to get along:
Wealth will be redefined, with enormous consequences for society. What humans strive for, what humans work for, will have nothing to do with the accumulation of money, but rather the accumulation of value within their lives, for their families and for humanity as a whole.
Nobody Says: Accumulation of ‘value’? Who decides what is of value? What if some people think they are more ‘valuable’ than others?
The redefining of wealth will also produce a new kind of currency. Equal Value Exchange Credits (evecs) will be a new currency denomination, and it will take the form of any exchange, not merely the exchange of paper or coins of financial accounting credits, which brings equal value to both sides in a transaction. Those who do “Gods’ work” to earn more than modes amounts money without being made wrong.
Originally the purpose of economics was not to make a profit. The original purpose was simply to establish a system under which people could trade with each other, exchanging their goods and sharing their abilities, so that the entire community could survive. There is enough of everything we need for all of us to be truly happy and all we have to do is find a way to share it.
Nobody Says: Will Obama share Air Force One with me? And besides, this is communism 101…Hey…I saw Doctor Zhivago..TWICE!
What a bunch of malarkey. Mr. Walsch has been regurgitating the Future Shock of Alvin Toffler.
Mr. Walsch, like many liberals who would NEVER dare share their wealth, is busy writing another one of his utopian books as we speak, and someone somewhere, will buy this, and dream of a world where everybody will all have free everything.
Hey, I have an old guitar I want to trade…and I want a month’s worth of lobster.
What? Not a fair trade?
Okay. I’ll throw in my old Willie Nelson records.
You don’t have a record player?
What? I’m trading you the value of a guitar which will get you a lifetime of pleasure and that FAR outweighs the value of a month’s worth of succulent Lobsters!
As you can see, this won’t work. Everything has a different value to everyone else. I can’t help it you can’t play guitar.

And so, Enjoy a few more Jewish Jokes and have a toast the next time you’re out telling jokes–to a very funny lady. We are going to MISS her.
(Thanks to Kris)
Q: What’s the difference between a Rottweiler and a Jewish mother?
A: Eventually, the Rottweiler lets go.
Q: Why are Jewish men circumcised?
A: Because Jewish women don’t like anything that isn’t 20% off.
They tried to kill us. We won. Let’s eat.
Did you hear about the bum who walked up to a Jewish mother on the street and said, “Lady, I haven’t eaten in three days.”
“Force yourself,” she replied.
Q: How many Jewish mothers does it take to change a light bulb?
A: (Sigh) “Don’t bother. I’ll sit in the dark. I don’t want to be a nuisance to anybody.”
The Harvard School of Medicine did a study of why Jewish women like Chinese food so much. The study revealed that this is due to the fact that Won Ton spelled backward is
There is a big controversy on the Jewish view of when life begins. In Jewish tradition, the fetus is not considered viable until it graduates from medical school.
Why do Jewish divorces cost so much? They’re worth it.
When a funny man with a very cool British accent tells me that Apple is lining up the first “mark of the beastie” I listen!
It’s just a matter of time until we all have to just put our thumbprint on scanners everywhere, and to make us all get used to it, (as they have made us get used to being groped like fat fish at the airports) they are using the most popular phone on the planet.
Even my little Wal-Mart T-Mobile Special is getting me used to ‘pressing’ my thumb to get into it.
You know what this means, don’t you?
Looting thumbprint will be coming to your neighborhood soon!
And some great inventor will make millions with his new ‘thumb glue.’
Better thumbs than eyeballs I say.
I have good news: I have found more irrefutable proof that liberals are much less educated in all matters than conservatives. Tonight I found something in history that all the democrats could use to gain their (black) liberal voter’s favor on immigration,
They could even use this to get every single Hispanic vote, if only their wise and all-knowing professors even cared to read real history books, instead of getting on talk shows and talking about how they used to blow things up.
Want to know what they could us as golden propaganda?
Frederick Douglass…was against the Mexican War. He thought it was an abomination. He thought America..PLUNDERED the poor Mexicans.
I can just hear Geraldo now. (Shhhh….Keep this knowledge to yourselves.)
The Mexican war was bloody, but it was fought by all volunteers. The treaty to end the war was signed on February 2, 1848. It was ratified by Congress on May 30. (NOTE: Back then Congress ratified treaties!)
Not everybody was happy. Some people wanted MORE territory, and some people didn’t want any at all.
Here was Douglass’s editorial on March 17, 1848, which appeared in the North Star, of which he was the editor:
PEACE! PEACE! PEACE!
The shout is on every lip, and emblazoned on every paper. The joyful news is told in every quarter with enthusiastic delight We are such an exception to the great mass of our fellow countrymen in respect to everything else, and have been so accustomed to hear them rejoice over the most barbarous outrages committed upon an unoffending people, that we find it difficult to unite with them in their general exultation at this time: and, for this reason, we believe that by peace they mean plunder.
In our judgment, those who have all along been loudly in favor of a vigorous prosecution of the war, and heralding its bloody triumphs with apparent rapture, and glorifying the atrocious deeds of barbarous heroism on the part of wicked men engaged in it, have no sincere love of peace, and are not now rejoicing over peace but plunder. They have succeeded in robbing Mexico of her territory, and are rejoicing over their success under the hypocritical pretense of a regard for peace. Had they not succeeded in robbing Mexico of the most important and most valuable part of her territory, many of those now loudest in their professions of favor for peace would be loudest and wildest for war-–war to the knife.
Our soul is sick of such hypocrisy. We presume the churches of Rochester will return thanks to God for peach they did nothing to bring about, and boast it as a triumph of Christianity! That an end is put to the wholesale murder in Mexico is truly just cause for rejoicing: but we are not the people to rejoice: we ought rather blush and hang our heads for shame, and, in the spirit of profound humility, crave pardon for our crimes at the hands of a God whose mercy endure forever.
There you have it. Think of what someone like Debbie “Pull my crappy hair” Wasserman could do with this knowledge.
Okay. So La Raza is already on this.
You have to ask yourself, why haven’t the democrats brought up the Mexican War? Do they really think they will just flood Texas with Mexicans and get the votes anyway?
Of course that’s the plan. :)
What they are NOT telling you is that the real reason men like Frederick Douglass and John Quincy Adams were against the Mexican war, is that they saw it as a plan for the Southern States to expand their territory, and therefore their votes, and slavery could live on forever more.
And aren’t they trying to do this again? Obama is just erasing the borders all the way down to the Northern borders of Brazil, and he didn’t even have to fight a war to get those votes. (I bet absentee voting cards are all Mexico already.)
Neither Douglass nor Adams saw back then, that the divide against the North and South would settle slavery forever in America, and we would actually make better use out of that territory than Mexico ever could have.
Adams led the small Whig opposition to the Mexican-American War. Most Whigs dared not vote against the requisition bills for the war, as doing so would deny resources to Gen. Taylor’s army, which was already suffering casualties against Mexican forces. The final vote on the war in the House was 174-14. Adams led the tiny opposition and referred to the conflict with Mexico as “a most unrighteous war.”
The people of Mexico didn’t put up much of a fight. The Indians had been raiding them for years. They were pretty tired of it all.
But— Imagine someone like Joe Biden saying ” The great Frederick Douglass said that we plundered Mexico!” ?
Plunder. The word would catch on in tweets all over the world.
Americans…plunder. (You bet we do. You should see us eat French Fries)
What would never be expressed by any liberal is that Douglass and Adams were two of the most conservative and righteous men that ever graced our history, and great fighters for the abolition of slavery, for which both men fought all their lives. They truly were afraid of slavery spreading forevermore.
That wouldn’t come out if the democrats used history today.
So——–nobody tell them.
Bradley Dean is either hated or admired. In the beginning of this video, he goes into the sacrifice of all the men and women who died throughout our history…those who died for the ideals of America.
The beginning describes many of the blunders that our military made on D-Day which cost thousands of our men’s lives—- Something you don’t hear much…and then you wonder–how many more blunders were caused in all the other wars?
Of course, we are not the first country or the last to do such. Many questions are being asked today about Obama’s new strategy to eliminate Isis. There is no end, there is no strategy, just a …well, we’ll do a little more… attitude.
It’s 9/11, and to those families who lost loved ones today we mourn with them. I’m sure feel it’s just another year to wonder for them, and another day for sorrow. I don’t see the age old fight between the Muslims and the Christians ending anytime soon, do you? (I’m just waiting for Obama to pick a side.)
Bradley Dean is a musician who goes around the schools and tries to educate the kids on American’s founders and Constitution. For that alone he is an amazing guy.
The first half of the video, is about our solders, the second half is mostly about Christianity, so if you’re not a Christian, you might find it sort of preachy.
Nevertheless, I had never thought about how all the apostles died, most of them…a bloody death…most all of them for being a Christian.
Some things…never seem to change.
So, Congratulations Bradlee Dean! You win the Nobody’s Fool Award for the week!
It’s good to know someone is trying to teach the kids.
If you like his video’s, just Google him on Youtube.
Boy. Am I disappointed. Everyone is so impressed about Obama coming out last night. Sounding Presidential. Sounding tough. We are going to war—To kill…all those… Islamist Jihadists (Wait….they are not Islamists…no Islam is a peaceful religion…sorry.) Nobody seems to think it’s all the usual Obama big mouth bluster.
Come on. You really don’t buy that speech do you? Remember that “You will NOT cross the red line, and you’ll keep your doctor too!” moments?
“We will hunt down terrorists who threaten our country, wherever they are,” Mr. Obama said. “That means I will not hesitate to take action against ISIL in Syria, as well as Iraq. This is a core principle of my presidency: If you threaten America, you will find no safe haven.”
Core principle? Since when? How many men that attacked Benghazi have been brought to justice?
Never mind that Obama said pretty much the same thing about getting all the people who killed our men in Benghazi. Yes, “Make no mistake” he would get them. (at the 1.00 mark)
So, excuse me…to most Americans this was just a more FORCEFUL speech, a political speech, to please the Americans people who are scared, elections are coming.
And why should we believe anything he says?
Face it: Here’s what the government doesn’t WANT to tell you. All democratic Presidents downsize the military and put money into their social programs. Bill Clinton destroyed so much of the military that it took George W. Bush a while to get it back up. About 9 months if I remember correctly.
They WANT you to think our military is always right there…READY. But, I’m not buying it anymore. And you’d better believe that the other countries know we are at our weakest.
Why else to you think Putin is having so much fun?
We’re just not ready to launch much of anything. Why else does Obama keep saying over and over “Uh..Everybody else has to help out..uh.”
Obama has already delivered half our military hardware to the local police, the rest he left over there for his ISIL.
And guess what? We don’t manufacture anymore, remember? How much do you think those bombs costs in China?
There has been a dramatic reduction in the Department of Defense. With the advent of GWOT (Global War on Terrorism) it is pretty clear that the force structure is totally inadequate to handle another campaign.
For the surge of 2010 in Afghanistan, more than 60 percent of the force structure was contract labor. And never before have contractors held such key positions.
Have we all forgotten that we are basically bankrupt? What’s the debt level now?
Two years ago it was $17 trillion. Have you heard ANY politician mention it in the last two years?
After the cold war, the budgets were cut, and too many contractors were competing for an ever shrinking budget . The companies began to merge to keep afloat.
Here’s a rundown a CIA operative, Dr. John B. Alexander
The mergers included huge companies, as well as acquisition and divestment of subsidiaries. As examples, in 1994 and 1995 Lockheed Corporation merged with Martin Marietta. Northrop merged with Grumman. Boeing merged with McDonnell Douglas. Raytheon merged with E-Systems and acquired Hughes, which had already been bought by General Motors.
This all happened under Clinton.
Most Americans would have been happy for President George W. Bush to just go get bin Laden, but he decided to re-engineer the whole middle East.
Maybe he saw the bigger picture. Maybe he didn’t. Maybe it was all about the money.
But here we are, more vulnerable than ever before.
Our government spend billions and BILLIONS of our dollars on Homeland Security, and the NSA, and yet any fool jihadists with a nuke can walk into the country.
How in the HELL are we suppose to believe that they are protecting us?
How can we possibly believe anything any President tells us anymore?
In what world?
Until our borders are secure we are sitting ducks.
Tonight, when Obama was spitting out all that patriotic BS that you KNOW he hates at the end of his speech, I couldn’t help but think that on this 9/11, in Obama’s home town of Chicago, five firemen are sitting at home after being suspended for having the American Flag on their lockers.
They were ordered to take the flags down. They refused.
There is a Marine sitting in a jail in Mexico, and Obama won’t lift a finger for him.
All over this country veterans are dying, waiting to be seen by doctors…Obama only cares about the ones who make him look good.
And as if to add insult to every American on 9/11…Obama starts off by TELLING us that ISIS is not Islamic.
Well, they CALL themselves Islamic. They kill in the name of Allah. Just because Obama wants to make up his own definition of them, shows how insulting he can be.
And when you have the leader of your country, saying such idiotic things to the world, you have to know it’s not just us that is in trouble, it’s everybody else too.
Obama IS the most clueless and dangerous man to EVER hold that office.
So, Obama will ask for millions to bomb from Congress, and he will get it. Nobody will declare war (They never do anymore do they?) and the money will go down deep black holes, and end up somehow in the wrong hands, and then those wrong hands will kill millions with their…Allah intentions.
So, on this 9/11 day, I would personally like to send a message to Michelle Obama
“Michelle. For the FIRST time in my life, I am ashamed of my President.”
Okay. Maybe the second. (Bill Clinton was disgusting.)
We can only pray the good men and women who still make up much of this country, are watching out for us now…because we have a bigger problem.
And right about now, he’s on the 16th hole.
This is amazing isn’t it?
Janay Rice not only accepts the fact that she was fully punched and knocked out by the man who “loves” her and doesn’t care, she has the gall to go on the ATTACK. She is attacking all the media outlets who are exploiting the elevator film for ratings and controversy. How DARE anyone get in her business!
Let’s look at it from HER side. Maybe she thinks she was asking for it. And by cutting off all his paycheck, she will have to stop buying new shoes, new coats, new clothes, new cars…she sees her future as disappearing from her life. Is it any wonder that she so pissed? After all, he didn’t kill her. He said he would NEVER do it again. She must think that she really is special.
Now, lets look at it from OUR side: Are you nuts? Why didn’t you have him arrested? Why didn’t you press charges? Instead you MARRY the guy? What did he buy you to make up? Enquiring minds want to know: Was it a diamond ring? A new car? A fur?
Actually, MS Rice thinks just like a democrat. When you HAVE no defense for your actions–do what Obama does—–Attack the other side for even criticizing you.
Why…blame Bush! Blame the white racists who own the football teams. I can’t believe you haven’t thought of that MS Rice.
Nobody Wonders about the mentality of abused women, but I’d say, if Janay wants to believe that this man, will never touch her again, I wonder…
Has she ever heard the 911 calls to the police from Nicole Simpson, long before she was murdered?
Stupid is, as stupid does. We hope his money is worth it Janay. Oh wait: He’s going to lose all that money. Better get it while you can.
I’d say —Better get yourself a gun, and stop spitting.
Where creativity comes from. You can read all the neurology books you want, the latest research, and they STILL don’t know why some people are more creative than others. When they say robots are going to take over the world…think again. Do you really think a robot will be as creative as a human?
Only by transplant.
(Although, I wouldn’t mind replacing Joe Biden with one.)
I was watching a documentary on Jimi Henricks last night, and remembering that I once saw him onstage, perform this very song. He was amazing to watch.
Jimi Hendricks could not only play the guitar in his sleep, he was incredibly original–from his clothes to the sound of his feedback, he did it all HIS way. No other guitar players sounded like him.
I don’t know how many millions of people dropped acid when they went to see Jimmy, but I bet some of those people are running the country right now.
When Einstein said that imagination was worth more than knowledge, I think he was talking about creativity. If you ask the really creative people, they have no clue where their ideas come from, most will say, it just comes from out of the blue. And as you will hear, the planet needs them, more than ever.
I found this video today on Glenn Becks’ site, and I enjoyed it so VERY much…I wanted everyone to see it, and especially anyone who reads this blog.
Sir Ken Robinson gave this talk at a TED gathering in California, where lots of brilliant minds get together and do talks on most everything.
Ken talks about how creativity is being destroyed in all school systems all over the world, and he’s right.
He’s also extremely funny, creative, and just like Jimi Henrick, puts his thoughts into YOUR head, like nobody else does.
So, I hope you can find the twenty minutes of your life, which if you are like me, is a lot….and watch this guy…I did. And now, I’m a big fan.
Attention! All Ferguson shoppers! Miami has joined you!
What is really fun about this video is the look on the protester’s faces when the reporter asked them the simple question:
“How much money does one McDonald’s make in a day?”
They have no clue. And why would they? To them, everybody that buys a McDonald’s hamburger is rich.
On the other hand, I wonder if it was rush hour, don’t you?
Bruce Levenson VS Lois Lerner.
Let’s take Bruce first:
It seems two years ago, Bruce Levenson, the owner of the Atlantic Hawks, sent an email to the Hawks general manager trying to figure out how to actually start making money with his team. Unlike in other cities, white people were NOT coming to the games, and the blacks who were attending, were just not spending much money.
“Over the past several years, I’ve spent a lot of time grappling with low attendance at our games and the need for the Hawks to attract more season ticket holders and corporate sponsors,” Levenson said in the statement. “Over that time, I’ve talked with team executives about the need for the Hawks to build a more diverse fan base that includes more suburban whites, and I shared my thoughts on why our efforts to bridge Atlanta’s racial sports divide seemed to be failing.
“I have told them I want some white cheerleaders and while I don’t care what the color of the artist is, I want the music to be music familiar to a 40 year old white guy if that’s our season tixs [sic] demo,” Levenson wrote in the email. “I have also balked when every fan picked out of crowd to shoot shots in some timeout contest is black. I have even bitched that the kiss cam is too black.”
The KISS cam is too black? Whoa. That’s low.
What’s a poor Jewish white guy owner to do? Why—- confess! And apologize! And show the whole world what a bigoted racist he is!
Does he think Obama might give him a job as the new Czar of basketball? With this kind of white liberal remorse, he might even get a buyer for the team, like that rich liberal Ted Turner. Or China? or Russia! He could very well get a few billion for his white liberal guilt. .
Stupid, he isn’t.
White people don’t want to go into a black neighborhood and listen to rap music at the game, so he says.
What am I missing here? (money)
And then there’s the Lois Lerner who “lost’ her emails, and nearly every email in the whole IRS data bank that had the word Obama and Tea Party in it. Never mind that the NSA has it.
“First it was only Lois Lerner,” Rep. Issa said. “Now we learn there are 5 others, several months after the administration supposedly came clean about email losses.
“The committee has recently learned that Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration has identified 760 IRS exchange server drives from the relevant period that currently exist and could contain Ms. Lerner’s emails.”
What? After ALL this time we find out all these missing emails might be somewhere else?
Have they tried looking in Hawaii?
Okay, this isn’t going to be too hard. Who do you think wins the Nobody’s Perfect Award for the week?
Is it the white, Jewish, and racist basketball owner who has been trying to sell this loser of a team for over two-year and he can’t find a buyer?
Or is it the “I did nothing wrong’ liberal tea party racist, who is protecting not only her own deep hatred of tea party citizens, but the fact that the orders to bully and threaten conservatives with the IRS was a plan from the White House all along?
And wouldn’t it be nice if, like Bruce Levenson, Lois Lerner brought ALL her ‘lost’ emails to Congress and said the very same thing that Bruce did?
Wouldn’t it be GREAT if she handed over her emails, and then said the same exact words to the public, that Bruce said–which were:
“If you’re angry about what I wrote, you should be. I’m angry at myself, too. It was inflammatory nonsense.”
Of course it would, and that’s why Lois Lerner wins the Nobody’s Perfect Award for the…year.
It’s one thing to try to make a buck selling a losing team, it’s quite another to illegally harass good citizens with the IRS like a SS Gestapo sergeant-of-arms in heat, and then shred all evidence of your crime, and then LIE about it all, all the while collecting your taxpayer pensions.
Next to Lois Lerner, Levenson looks like…the varsity team in Obama’s back yard.
Personally, I think they’d make a very cute couple.
