—Why FOX news downplayed this obvious overreacting of a Republican Congressman threatening to end the life of a reporter, but they did. CNN didn’t though—all they talked about today was the ice traffic jam in Georgia, and this incident. Right after it happened, he said this:
“I was extremely annoyed because I was doing NY1 a favor by rushing to do their interview first in lieu of several other requests. The reporter knew that I was in a hurry and was only there to comment on the State of the Union, but insisted on taking a disrespectful and cheap shot at the end of the interview, because I did not have time to speak off-topic. I verbally took the reporter to task and told him off, because I expect a certain level of professionalism and respect, especially when I go out of my way to do that reporter a favor. I doubt that I am the first Member of Congress to tell off a reporter, and I am sure I won’t be the last,” read the statement.
Nobody Wonders if this is the new norm: our elected power-inflated officials just have an overwhelming desire to pick up reporters and throw them off tall buildings and watch them splat.
Good thing there was a camera there.
This clearly was New York Union thug-like behavior towards a reporter. But then again, Obama had Larry Connors, a well established newsman here in St. Louis, fired after he interviewed Obama and later said that he was audited.
I’m so glad he didn’t have him thrown him off a 4-story building.
It’s been a while since I touched on probably my most favorite politician in the whole wide world: Daniel Hannan. (thanks to amforatas for putting me on to him.)
If only the world was filled with more of these men, earth would be a better place. In this speech, he delivers a uplifting speech for England to be its own country again.
Watch in awe— this man of intelligent perfection: And enjoy.
If England was smart, they’d make this man Prime Minister.
Before Ted Cruz, there was Wendy Davis.
Yes, remember Wendy? She made her big mark in history on June 25, 2012, when she strapped on a catheter in Texas, and filibuster to block Senate Bill 5, which banned abortions after 20 weeks and required doctors to have admitting privilege at a nearby hospital. Rick Perry won that fight, but Wendy became a feminist hero overnight—Which was the plan. The Democrats WANT Texas. And they are running the blond from…where else?
But…evidently Wendy hasn’t got the very important art of lying down quite yet.
Nobody Knows how hard it was for one poor and desperate single mom, to go from going to college, working to support herself and her two daughters while she was struggling, and all her own effort…actually make it to Harvard law school, ONLY to jump into the Texas race for governor?
Wow. What a woman, you might say. Not since Hillary have we heard such fortitude of strength. Imagine, having to support her two kids, struggle through law school at Harvard, losing sleep, worrying, staying up late at night helping the girls with their schools work…
Wait. Hear it from her own lips:
Wendy Davis will tell you…her life has been rough.
“I had a baby. I got divorced by the time I was 19 years old … After I got divorced, I lived in a mobile home park in southeast Fort Worth.”
Yes, prepare for another round of— “Women have had it SO tough, and they are not paid like the men, and they are losing the battle for equality” blah, blah, blah. It was Obama’s theme song in his last election, and it will be the new theme in Hillary’s campaign for President.
Once again…”Mistreated women of the world…UNIT!
But…somehow it has slipped out: Behind Wendy Davis’s miraculous story of success.. (shhhhh….) .There was a husband for whom she could not have attained that success. Imagine that? A man who not only paid for her education but took care of the kids while she got her degree!
Davis’s website says she made her way through college and Harvard Law School “with the help of academic scholarships and student loans,” but her second husband, with whom she had a second daughter, also made significant financial contributions. When the future state senator met lawyer Jeff Davis, she was working two jobs and attending Texas Christian University on an academic scholarship and a Pell Grant. After their marriage, he paid for the last two years of her undergraduate degree. While Davis attended Harvard Law School, her husband cared for the two girls back in Texas and helped pay her tuition, cashing in his 401(k) and taking out a loan.
And then the very DAY after he made the last loan payment—: She divorced him.
Nobody Knows how many men have met this same fate: But go ahead: Tell us.
The main reason Texas should beware of this harpie, who likes to mention the word vagina on the Senate floor, is her vindictive nature.
Davis first ran for the Fort Worth city council in 1996. She was defeated. After her defeat Davis sued the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, American Broadcasting Company, and the Disney Company, which at the time owned the Star-Telegram and ABC. The Texas Tribune stated that she alleged “that biased coverage led to her defeat and caused injury to her physical and mental health“.[
Nobody Knows if the democrats have bigger and better things in store for MS Davies if she loses her run for governor, but, I suggest, Bill Clinton is not too old to step in and help the poor woman out. I can just hear their new campaign song now..
“There’s a place for usssss…somewhere a place for usssss….hold my had and I’ll take you there…somewhereeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!”
Boy, I’ve got some catching up to do haven’t I? It seems the last two weeks, the press has been attacking the two front runners of 2016: Hillary Clinton VS Chris Christie. The ‘progressives’ have started their attack with the sweet face of Chelsea, who will be running right up front with her mom. She was on Rachael Ray, (more poised than her mother)–in order to get the young single women into the race. Chelsea will be the sweet bullet they will use to get the young vote—in the meantime mom sports the “bangs” that got Michelle’s ‘youth’ vote.
While Chelsea hogs the lame talk shows, Chris Christie is on full defense. He is being bashed as the man who prevented millions from going to the bathroom on the interstate. And as Rush noted —the dems bring out their stars to insult the front runners—Palin got SNL…Chris Christie gets his state’s hero, none other than Bruce Springsteen to mock him.
The comrades are just warming up: All the Benghazi investigations cannot even touch the stars that Obama has in his pocket. Hillary, will somehow persevere, if only because, the ‘progressives’ play dirty. and images go much further than common sense in America.
Tom Edison never expected this when he invented the motion picture camera did he now?
Did you know that Hitler was not killed? According to Jerome Corsi, in his new book, Hitler got out, and lived out his days in Argentina. Hey, why not? I can’t see that idiot killing himself. That’s one book I’m can’t wait to read.
That’s me. It seems my “flu” went into pneumonia…I blame my dog, who thought minus 7 degrees was a day at Maui and decided to let in all the cold air one night while I was sleeping. (Don’t ask, my dog is spoiled, a true American Eskimo.) Good news, antibiotics are kicking in…but I’m not ready for laps just yet.
Some GOOD news! China can now send us light bulbs that don’t kill us. If Congress did one thing right, it was open the door to our beloved Edison’s light bulb. Thank you!
John Kerry was described as being not only an nincompoop, but completely messianic by one of the Israel’s top guys who KNOWS the Iranians. Nobody Knows how Obama’s big peace movement can be claimed when they now have idiots saying that Iran can’t even make a bomb…but Iran has declared, thanks to Obama, that the West has surrendered. Which is why I present this early picture of Bin Laden: That’s him at 14, second from right….surrendering to the West. (Remind you of anyone?)
And speaking of John Kerry: Did you know he NEVER eats ketchup? That could be his problem Even Jesus would use ketchup on stale bread. (Speaking of Jesus, did you know now that Ariel Sharon has died he is coming back according to this rabbi? )
He just didn’t say when. (The Jews are so smart.)
In the meantime, the NSA continued to collect data on millions of American that it swears it will never see…but it’s just so much fun to collect it.
Rand Paul said having Obama look into potential abuses, was like having the Fox guard the hen house: He had this to say:
“We can’t allow the White House to be the one in charge of overseeing the White House,” he said. “They say collecting all your records is not spying. It is spying.”
Obama’s has put himself in charge of overseeing the whole terrorist NSA thing…which brings this picture to mind: During 9/11, these planes were grounded, waiting for their orders. Imagine where our military will be if we should ever be attacked on our own soil? (again) We are finding out Hillary and Obama saw no reason to protect 4 in the most dangerous place in the world, so…..will they worry about the rest of us, or blame it on a video? (again) And we thought the reaction to 9/11 was bad….
Obama has threatened once again, that he will take action with his pen and his phone, if Congress does not bend to his wishes. Imagine the surprise when Secretary of Defense, Robert Gates, whose book about Obama has been discussed the whole week, came out with a neck brace and put the record straight: It was CONGRESS’s fault.
Nobody Wins when your top officials are afraid of the “Commander in Chief” and nobody asks…uh…what happened to your neck Mr. Gates?
Jimmy Kimmel is Nobody’s Fool
Bill Clinton and Hillary Clinton playing volleyball. It took a man to make the woman….and we should all care about what’s coming….It was the first time Hillary laid down for Bill Clinton. And something tells me, it won’t be the last. You think Hillary runs the show? Would these two ever commit suicide in a bunker together?
Nobody Rants on a Saturday
I have been really out of it since last Monday, it seems I caught the usual “flu” of the season, and I can tell you the exact moment…I was coming out of the bathroom at my local Wal-Mart, the one that I HATE to shop at but have to due to “lack of competition.” They are the only place that sells certain items…anyway, I had washed my hands, put on anti-bacterial hand lotion, stepped out into the store, and then I heard it: the deadly cough…from a kid. Right there in front of me.
“Oh boy, I’m doomed.” I thought, and sure enough —while going out to pick up the mail in minus 3 below zero a few days later, it didn’t take long for the sore throat to start. And what they are saying is right: the new bugs are oblivious to everything: It didn’t matter what I took from my medicine cabinet, nothing worked. The only thing that worked was daily trips trapped in a steam filled bathroom, thanking god that I had hot water…
And speaking of hot water, I don’t think I ever remember a town’s water supply being contaminated so badly that 300,000 people are told not to touch it, do you? Can you imagine not being able to wash your face, your hair, your teeth, or cook as the poor people of West Virginia? And yet, have you noticed, whole towns can be wiped off the map by tornadoes or floods, or spilled chemical disasters, and what does the media repeat over and over and over?
The latest political scandal…whatever it is. As if, politics are the most important thing in the country. And last week it was Chris Christie’s email. It’s no secret that Chris Christie wants the Republican nomination. He showed that at the last Republican convention down in Florida, when he gave a big speech about himself instead of Mitt Romney. As I remember, he even looked very pissed at Romney that night, probably for not picking him to be his VP. And so everyone remembers Christie gawking over Obama right before the elections, and his obsequious behavior to Obama after that hurt Romney really bad. He knew it, and really didn’t care.
He is vindictive…no doubt about it. He’s as ruthless as they come. I don’t buy this “big heart” he puts on. Bill Clinton was good at that too.
Beware of puppy dog faces.
Nevertheless, Hillary is such a weak candidate, and Chris is about as big as a liberal as she is…they have to get rid of him early. Watch for some more nasty attacks on the big “bully”. Christie’s apology speech was much too long, and that was a stupid political move on his part, but so typical of egotistical politicians..
And speaking of egotistical politicians, since I was in bed last week, I even watched the Obama “promise Zones” speech, and I got something very different from everybody else. What I heard is that Obama is giving money to poor Hispanics and future democratic voters in economic zones (he left out Detroit…why?) where big corporations will be needing future workers, and he is going to make sure kids get government care from birth if necessary. The Promise Zone is early childhood state nanny help. That’s what I heard. Just more of the agenda that Hillary wanted on the plate since she stated it in “It Takes a Village.” Hillary stated in that book that she thinks the state can take care of the babies in the first year.
Don’t believe me? Read it.
Just his week in St. Louis, the last Macy’s North of St. Louis closed down. Eight thousand jobs were lost. The mall it was attached to died in 2009, so it’s a wonder it held on that long. For every ‘job’ created, five are lost.
By the way, did ANYBODY hear how great the retail sales were during Christmas?
I never did.
What kind of idiots base their GDP on how much people spend?
Anyway, the good news is, I did not cough ONCE while typing this! The old cantankerous woman is coming back!
If I seem a little scattered in the next few days, blame it on the Nyquil that isn’t working.
Any home remedies on “how to kick the flu in less than 3 days” would be really appreciated. (It’s now been 6 days, I’m ready.)
A few more thoughts on New Year’s Eve…basically, this is what’s coming to America.
And here’s more from Thomas Sowell….
What ObamaCare has done, thanks to Chief Justice Roberts’ Supreme Court decision, is reduce us all from free citizens to cowed subjects, whom the federal government can order around in our own personal lives, in defiance of the 10th Amendment and all the other protections of our freedom in the Constitution of the United States.
ObamaCare is more than a medical problem, though there are predictable medical problems — and even catastrophes — that will unfold in the course of 2014 and beyond. Our betters have now been empowered to run our lives, with whatever combination of arrogance and incompetence they may have, or however much they lie.
This means that Republicans have to decide whether their top priority is internal strife among the different wings of the party — another circular firing squad — or whether either wing puts the country first.
And last but certainly not least…thoughts from the past, still relevant today…
Some people just put their foot in their mouths every other day. And some people actually THINK before they speak. I’ve done more of the former than the latter. For instance, once after I had played and sang at a funeral for a friend who had lost his mother… Jesse (that actually was his name) went out of his way to thank me sincerely for making the day so special: And I said in my most sincerest voice—“I’d be happy to sing at any future family funerals Jesse.”
What I MEANT was: Anytime you need me, to do it again, just call, but whoa…he took it to mean, I couldn’t wait for his whole family to drop dead. Not what I was trying to say that…but to this day, I don’t trust myself when I speak…my brain goes faster than my mouth, and I’m totally bored with whatever I was thinking, on to the next thought I go, and my mind is usually on another subject by the time I get to the second word. Which means, I’m not paying a bit of attention to what I’m saying.
(Anybody else have that problem?) We’ve all been there. And THIS year, the media has published the most famous quotes of the year, many of us would like to forget, including the people who said them. Listed below are the “not so perfect” and then a few gems. My Nobody’s Perfect column fits perfectly with the last day of the year. Imperfection is at least one thing that we truly do, all have in common.
The Not So Perfect Quotes of 2013.
“My father had a ranch. We used to hire 50 to 60 wetbacks to pick tomatoes.”— Alaska Republican congressman Don Young
I missed that one. I think it would be a good name for a football team. Wetbacks. Maybe the Indians would feel better about the Redskins.
Nobody bothered to ask Rob how MANY drunken stupors Bob has had. But then again, it’s Canada, where everybody is drunk most of the time because the beer tastes better there. He’s perfect for them.
I can give assurances to the public’s in Europe and around the world that we’re not going around snooping at people’s emails or listening to their phone calls.”— President Barack Obama
B.S. —Before Snowden
“Well, you know, my shotgun will do better for you than your AR-15, because you want to keep someone away from your house, just fire the shotgun through the door.” Joe Biden

I have a hood?
“I think we disproportionately stop whites too much and minorities too little.”— New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg
The most intelligent thing ever uttered by a New York Mayor.
“If you like your health care plan, you can keep it.”— President Barack Obama
He didn’t really say that. What his mind was thinking is: You can’t keep your plan, I am getting rid of it, it’s just that my mouth wasn’t listening to my thoughts…
“embrace the suck.”
Nancy Pelosi telling the world, that we are going to be sucked dry of everything. And she sucks. Good to know.
“I didn’t set a red line. The world set a red line.”- President Barack Obama
And then, it crossed it again and again, amazingly not disturbing the many flights of Air Force One. Maybe he got confused. Obama has crossed too many red lines to count. In fact, I think he could be color blind, and everything is black and white. There IS no red.
“I am sorry that they are finding themselves in this situation, based on assurances they got from me”- President Barack Obama
No he’s not.
“What difference, at this point, does it make?”- Hillary Clinton
The difference it makes, is you want to be President.

“I was Hannah Montana’s mother…Where did I go wrong?” Brooke Shields

And thanks to you, I WILL remain the King of the Trivia Pursuit in my family: Green eggs and ham.
“Some of us feel like we are in a circular firing squad.”—– GOF P Virginia, Shelley Moore Capitol
The shutdown insanity….where local people survived but GOP representatives. Got shot with Obama bullets of blame for something he caused. Welcome to our world Ms. Moore.
“It does give you a perspective on humanity…they just came in, they helped, and they left.” —Boulder resident Kim Schuler after the epic flooding in Colorado.
Boulder resident find out white (probably republicans) humans are actually kind and good, and are great to have around in a crisis. Who knew?
“Obamacare is really the worst thing that has happened in this nation since slavery. It is slavery, in a way.”— Neurosurgeon Ben Carson
“So when you spot violence, or bigotry, or intolerance or fear or just garden-variety misogyny, hatred or ignorance, just look it in the eye and think, ‘The good outnumber you, and we always will,’” wrote comedian Patton Oswalt on Facebook after the Boston bombing.
Taken without political correctness…one of the best quotes of the year.
“The Fed manages what has become the biggest transfer program to the rich, channeling cheap credit to the government and big business. It comes at the expense of small businesses where most fit entry-level jobs are created. The fed has gained colossal new discretionary powers to micromanage the whole financial system. The Fed gives it whatever money it wants. It comes under no congressional control.. This is all blatantly unconstitutional but that matters less and less these days.” —Steve Forbes
Nobody Notes: I really hope everyone has a safe and Happy New Year’s celebration!
My advice: Don’t drink and talk. You might end up here next year.
UPDATE: WAIT…let’s add one more favorite quote:
“Just remember, the harder they squeeze, the more we’ll slip through their fingers.” snopercod
Here’s three events in the news that have got this Nobody….wondering.
He is old news…but the fraud interpreter at Mandela’s funeral was standing there for four hours before any security detail checked him out. What does THAT tell you? Do you really think with all those world dignitaries on the stage that SOMEBODY’s service detail would have not know that this guy was an imposter? He is pretty buff, and he has a brand new apple computer, but hey—he’s sorry.
Nobody Wonders if he wasn’t hired (Come on, what schizophrenic do you know that has biceps bursting through their jacket?) to stand close by to take a bullet just in case anyone from the crowd took a shot at one of the speakers. Never mind the American Presidential FBI being so lame, how did all the other security guards miss it?
Have you heard any alarms from any country besides South Africa?
And, he saw angels. Right. I see dead people. Next time find a body guard who can actually sign.
And then there was the “ho hum” news about Loretta Fuddy. Poor Loretta, she was the only fatality in a plane crash….what are the odds that all the other people survived? You have to ask the question: Can the government have people who hold secrets they don’t want revealed killed, and make it look like an accident?
Did Ron Brown NOT have a bullet hole in his head?
Loretta was the women, who produced Obama’s birth certificate, after it was announced that it didn’t exist.
Obama asked for copies of the document, and under Fuddy, the state instantly waived a long-claimed ban on reproducing long-form birth certificates. On Fuddy’s instructions, copies were produced and delivered to Judith Corley, a private attorney for Obama.
Fuddy had written to Obama: “We hope that issuing you these copies of your original Certificate of Live Birth will end the numerous inquiries received by the Hawaii Department of Health to produce this document.”
Immediately after the delivered copy was posted on the White House website, however, numerous computer graphics and software experts declared it fraudulent.
Poor Loretta…made the last page of the last article of the conservative blogs, a patriot helping her President only to be taken out by a freak accident…because anyone who would dare to suggest that Loretta was maybe regarded as a National Security risk would be considered a nutcase. Nobody Wonders if there was an deaf interpreter on that plane.
And to save the best for last, Phil Robertson from Duck Dynasty, had this to say about gays:
“It seems like, to me, a vagina – as a man – would be more desirable than a man’s anus. That’s just me,” Robertson stated. “I’m just thinking: There’s more there! She’s got more to offer. I mean, come on, dudes! You know what I’m saying? But hey, sin: It’s not logical, my man. It’s just not logical.”
Will Obama finally come out of the closet?
OR—-John “Benedict Arnold Boehner”: It’s All About the Principles, Stupid.
“It does not take a majority to prevail, but rather an irate and tireless minority keen on setting brushfiires of freedom in the minds of men. ” —Sam Adams.
The Republican Party is at war. A few very brave men have been fighting for America and its people, against a very old, entrenched, powerful old boys club. The NSA reports must be overwhelmed with angry conservatives, because John Boehner, (old, entrenched man) GOP Speaker of the House, just couldn’t take it anymore.
Last week the Congress actually passed a budget…with the help of Paul Ryan. Except once again, the democrats win.
Tell me, why do they always win?
Paul Ryan and John Boehner want you to think they can never win. They have already given up. All that really matters to them, is they get to stay in that wonderful seat of power for more years of their lives.
I quite liked Paul Ryan when he came out last year. Like Sarah Palin, he was brought onto the ticket by the progressives in power, to get the majority of American conservatives to the polls. Mitt Romney had implemented Obamacare in Massachusetts, and the people didn’t like that one bit. He really needed help. They showed off Paul, everyone fell in love with him, and then they hid him. But, unlike Sarah Palin, who refused to go to Washington and bow to the big dogs, Paul has fallen in line with them.
John Boehner blamed the tea party for shutting down the government last week—he was attacking them viciously as if he had NOTHING to do with it,
No,no…John was just a puppet in the whole thing.
A principled man would not have done something against his own nature, John…but hey, what do you know about principles?
Here’s their argument and they are all sticking to it: We are powerless, so, just vote us in again next time, and we’ll fix it.
Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!
Here’s the deal John: We don’t believe you anymore.
Paul was so excited, about the fact that there was going to BE no shutdown he said this:
To really do what we think needs to be done, we are going to have to win some elections.”
Gee…you’re getting off to a fine start, both of you. Big help there. Attack freedom loving, life loving, patriotic Americans. Talk just like Obama. Ignore the Marxist in your White House. Blame the people for everything. You’re just there to slap us all down when we act up, right?
Obama blames the republicans, and the republicans blame…the people.
What genius thought up that strategy?
So what did Paul get for his “I’m as helpless as a milkweed in a windstorm” attitude?
Spending has been increased by $63 billion, deficits will increase over the next 3 years, but fraudulent money won’t be going to prisoners anymore. (We’ll just send it to the illegal’s who will then send it to their friends in jail.) The federal government spends $3.8 trillion a year, and just like Iran, nobody can stop that.
Sixty-two House Republicans voted against the Boehner-backed budget deal Thursday, requiring dozens of Democratic votes to pass it. So, I suppose Bonehead thinks that all the independent democrats are going to vote Republican. He doesn’t need those radical conservatives anymore.
What happens if they have an election and we all stay home?
Here’s the good news: The leader of the Republican Party was so mad I wanted to send him a Uncle Sid Duck Dynasty Chia Doll for Christmas. John Boehner is tired of having to “Like’ those radical people in House., and he basically told the America conservative people last week to— “$&% Off!”
“They’re misleading their followers,” Boehner, R-Ohio, told reporters at the Capitol. “I just think that they’ve lost all credibility.”
John, we’re not misled. And the only one who has lost credibility is you. But then again, I don’t think you ever had any. What Nobody Wonders is why would he do such a stupid thing? Knock his own party so viscously?
Any man or woman of principle would have a hard time being friends with liars, cheaters, and egomanicas. But the GOP progressives Rino’s always turn the other cheek.
We don’t want them to turn the other cheek, we want them to fight for us. Fight! Fight!
In the end, Bongino (x Presidential body guard) had the best comeback to John Boehner’s angry rant:
“America’s best days are ahead, and you and your fellow insiders and cronyists and ‘party before country’ loyalists, on both sides of the aisle, can bathe in your titles and power now, but understand that I, and many others, have dedicated our lives to draining the dirty water from the bathtub. Consider yourself served,”.
So, dear John: Take a good hard look, at the principled man. The man who thinks giving in to tyrants in order to keep yourself comfy, is treasonous.
The man who puts his country before himself.
Better get your golf clubs out, because he is not going away.
NOBODY NOTES on Templates: This one is called Timeline: And I promise, once I settle on one, I will get a picture up.
Cocaine. The rich get a little money, and they just can’t seem to help themselves—- They love to do cocaine. Obama did so much cocaine throughout his life, his sweat is being collected by his buddy Mr. Love and being sold on e-bay for over a $1000 dollars a drop. (Just kidding, his poll numbers are going down. His sweat has dropped in value.)
And last week, we had Rob Ford, who had so much coke flowing through his blood, he was knocking over old ladies.
So this week, on our Nobody’s Perfect list of losers, we have a somebody (a politician) vs. a nobody. (not sure what this guy does) The world is filling up with somebody’s and nobody’s and comparing the two is always educational, don’t you think?
Let’s start with the politician first: Rep. Trey Radel, simply because he’s from a city that is close to my old home town of Naples, Florida:
(Newser) – A freshman Republican in the House now has much bigger worries than a re-election campaign. Rep. Trey Radel, who represents Florida’s Fort Myers area, has been charged with misdemeanor cocaine possession in DC, reports Politico. The Miami Herald describes Radel as a “libertarian-leaning” Republican in line with the Tea Party and says the 37-year-old might have caught a break by getting busted in Washington: He would have faced felony charges in Florida. His maximum penalty in DC would be 180 days in jail and a $1,000 fine if convicted.
Right! He got busted in D.C., where, as far as we know, half the city is on crack! They sure act like it. He has a wife and a son, and I’m sure two very proud parents somewhere in Ft. Myers wondering how this could have happened.
And then there’s the nobody: Jermaine Lloyd, who was busted because he was running around naked with a turban on his head.
Deputies had to use force Sunday to subdue a naked man wearing only high heels and a turban after spotting him hiding behind a tree trying to put on pink women’s panties and pantyhose.
So, who wins the Nobody’s Perfect award for the week? Aha! My first tendency is to give the award to Jerome, because Trey was just cokin…not running around naked with a Turban on his head.
On the other hand, Trey is being paid to represent the good people of Ft. Meyers. As a tax-paying citizen of Lee Country, I’m offended that my representative is hanging out with the people in Washington.
Unlike the motto of Las Vagas: What happens in Washington, doesn’t stay in Washington. In fact, it usually ruins the whole country. He should know that.
So, Congratulations Trey! You win, the Nobody’s Perfect award for the week, for basically not knowing that Obama is out to get anyone who is associated with the Tea Party. Everyone else is allowed to do cocaine…just not you. Trey is already being audited as we speak.
First, we see this apology from last week, made by the very entertaining Mayor of Toronto, Bob Ford. Before this very typical politician apology–you know, where they say “we need to move forward, for the good of the taxpayers” when caught being scumbags, the Mayor had been caught smoking crack, when drunk, and ranting madly in a video talking about killing somebody. But HEY! He does this on his own time, he says, therefore, he’s not really guilty!
So, the city council voted to strip him of his powers (after finding out more stuff…like talking nasty, hanging out with prostitutes and pushing down old ladies…etc…) NOW…he’s mad, so he is getting his own reality TV show, called….Welcome to New Jersey! No…sorry…that’s not the name of it. I get him mixed up with another fat loudmouth politician. It happens.
Second: We have the “Sarah Palin should just be forced to eat shit, like the old slaves were made to do.” man of the primetime MSNBC news hour: Martin Bashir. His apology seems so much more sincere, which makes you wonder if he even wrote it.
So, who wins the Nobody’s Perfect award for the week?
The man who got on SNL, of course.
I can’t decide whether to laugh or cry at this. Okay. I’m laughing. Dave Wilson didn’t really lie about not being black, he just did the same thing that Obama does and did to get himself elected. Vote for me…because I’m black like you! That’s all you need to know!
Nobody Wins when black Americans are so uneducated that they will vote for anybody, not for what they stand for, but because they like his skin color.
Nevertheless: Pretty funny Dave! (even though it’s kind of sad)
The right of a nation to kill a tryant in case of necessity can no more be doubted than to hang a robber, or kill a flea.—John Adams
I am a BIG fan of Thomas Sowell, and I don’t think that I have ever read a piece by him that I could disagree with: But this week, Thomas sided with the progressive Republicans in saying that Ted Cruz did damage to the party by trying to defund Obamacare. Nobody has a different opinion on that matter, so Mr. Thomas, forgive me, but I must protest. (Read his article here.)
Thomas: The tea party’s principles were clear. But their tactics can only be judged by the consequences.
Nobody: Tell me Thomas, you are basically saying that the only time to fight for your principles is when you are sure to win that fight…right? I don’t think there were many men that signed the Declaration of Independence that thought America had much of a chance of winning that fight…and yet, they stood together on principle. You don’t win a fight with just one battle. Instead of attacking the one lone man who did, we SHOULD be attacking the rest of the men that didn’t stand, and that was most of our Congress.
Thomas: Since the tea party sees itself as the conservative wing of the Republican Party, its supporters might want to consider what was said by an iconic conservative figure of the past, Edmund Burke: “Preserving my principles unshaken, I reserve my activity for rational endeavors.”
Nobody: You reason here that because the democrats are in the majority, they can pass Obamacare and therefore fighting to defund it was “irrational.”
Irrational? If you know something is going to destroy America, do you stand aside because you don’t have the legislative power? That’s irrational. Your rationality depends on honest and fair elections, something that NO one has the power to verify since elections results are now done in Spain, in secret, and reported to an elite few. Where have you been Mr. Sowell? Vacationing? The whole process of our elections have been changed with technology. This is not the America you remember. Not to mention, the power of the Feds and the corporate lobbying. The ‘people’s voice is very little right now. We are being boiled like frogs.
Thomas: Most people outside the tea party recognized that defunding Obamacare was also beyond their power — and events confirmed that.
Nobody: Right…we knew we would lose, so don’t fight. We also knew that Obmacare had other nasty goodies in it—like establishing civil armies in our cities, and that it would doom us to poverty, and in many cases death, but hey, it will die of its own accord, right Mr. Sowell? With only a handful of men opposing it, why should we feel confident about that? We can’t. Ted Cruz looks like a hero right now with all the people losing their insurance. John Adams would have been right up there with him..
Thomas: With the chances of making a dent in Obamacare by trying to defund it being virtually zero, and the Republican Party’s chances of gaining power in either the 2014 or 2016 elections being reduced by the public’s backlash against that futile attempt, there was virtually nothing to gain politically and much to lose.
Nobody: Okay, what you are saying that since our principles are just, we should compromise them, in order for the progressive members of the party to remain in power. Right now, there is no public backlash against Ted Cruz. The public backlash is against Obama and his lies. You, dear sir, are still on page one.
Thomas: However difficult it might be to repeal Obamacare after it gets up and running, the odds against repeal, after the 2014 and 2016 elections, are certainly no worse than the odds against defunding it in 2013. Winning those elections would improve the odds.
Nobody: We have lost the last two Presidential elections with your kind of thinking. The power of the President trumps all of Congress at the moment. And the tea party will not vote for another loser, especially if they believe in Obamacare as Mitt Romney did. The Democrats will successfully smear all republicans because they are just better at it, and their people have been brainwashed by years of liberal education, and they are being supported by the government. This is all by design.
In the meantime, Mr. Sowell, people will die waiting for the RIGHT time to defund Obamacare. Tell me, if I have cancer, and lost my doctor, do I have to wait until 2016 to get my treatment? I could very well be dead. Does that matter to you? Or does the success of the ‘party’ matter more?
Thomas: If the tea party made a tactical mistake, that is not necessarily fatal in politics. People can even learn from their mistakes — but only if they admit to themselves that they were mistaken. Whether the tea party can do that may determine not only its fate but the fate of an America that still needs the principles that brought tea party members together in the first place.
Nobody: It’s just your opinion that the tea party made a mistake. From our side of the isle, because Ted Cruz was honest, and right to oppose this horrible death sentence to America, we are proud to follow his example. You’re the one making the mistake by siding with the progressive Republicans, who are run by the corporations and banks, and you have given in, probably to keep yourself employed. Don’t worry, Peggy Noonan did the same thing.
When Hitler was in power, would you have told the Jews to just wait to the next elections to protest?
Nobody Wonders what happened to Thomas Sowell great thinking cap, and if he will ever admit HIS mistake in taking political expediency to principle. Our founders didn’t wait, and one of the reasons our country has gotten to this horrible point, is because more good men did not stick up for principle. No, they WAITED until the NEXT election. They sold out their principles every single time.
You might want to live in a country like that Thomas, but I don’t.
You admit the tea party is right on principle, but wrong on ‘tactics.” I disagree, and probably because I have much more to lose than you.
Only time will prove which one of us is right.
Media bias. According to this video, the reason the conservatives are losing the battle is due to the fact that there are more democrats reporting the news than conservatives. If the conservatives could get more of their message across, there would be a shift.
The liberal media is good at one thing that the conservatives are not: They know how to use the internet to create a fake firestorm
From the book by Ryan Holiday: Trust Me, I’m Lying. He explains how it’s done…
“I designed the advertisements, which I bought and placed around the country, (on billboards) and then promptly called and left anonymous complaints about them (and leaked copies of my complaints to blogs for support.) I alerted college LGBT and women’s rights groups to screenings in their area and baited them to protest our offensive movie at the theater., knowing that the nightly news would cover it. I started a boycott group on FACEbook. I orchestrated fake tweets and posted fake comments to articles online. I even won a contest for being the first one to send in a picture of a defaced ad in Chicago. (thanks for the free T-shirt, Chicago Redeye. Oh, also, that photo was from New York.) I manufactured preposterous stories about Tuckers’ (fake name) behavior on and off the movie set and reported them to gossip websites, which gleefully repeated them. I paid for anti-woman ads on feminist websites and anti-religion ads on Christian websites, knowing each would write about it. Sometimes I just Photoshopped ads onto screenshots of websites and got coverage for controversial ads that never actually ran. The loop became final when, for the first time in history, I put out a press released to answer my own manufactured criticism: TUCKER MAX RESPONDS TO CTA DECISION:” BLOW ME.” the headline read.
I pulled this off with no connections, no money, and no footsteps to follow. But because of the way that blogging is structured—from the way bloggers are paid by the page view to the way blog posts must be written to catch eh readers’ attention—this was all very easy to do. So as the manufactured storm I created played itself out in the press, real people started believing it, and it became true.
However the play starts, the end is the same: The economics of the Internet are exploited to change public perception, and sell product. “
So…how much of the news that bloggers are repeating actually fake stories? It’s pretty easy to plant the story and watch it go up the latter…from the bloggers, to the radio hosts, to the magazines, then to the national news.
I talked to my brother today, and he said, “They just ought to let Obamacare fail.” And right after he said it, I thought to myself, “He is just repeating the very same thing the Rino’s are saying. He must have heard it on TV.” And because everyone’s life is so busy, we have all trusted what we heard in the past.
Those days…..are gone.
We all know that Obama has thousands of fake followers on his tweets. Who knows how many people they have on staff to manipulate the news? According to Ryan, they know exactly how to manipulate the media, and they pay people big money to do it.
Nobody Wins when the media will plant staged events to get power, but at least some people are starting to know, like Ryan Holiday, that as clever as he was in doing this stuff, he is destroying lives.
And now, for more of a good laugh, see how many times Obama used this staged fainting stunt, and WHO he learned it from. Don’t miss the end, Hillary is pretty funny. Talk about “fake.” I’m starting to think we should rename Washington, “Silicone Valley.”
