1. Continuing on with the Wall Street occupation/protests I’ve been told that it is peaceful and everyone is singing kumbayah and playing bongo drums, but I tend to think that there is more going on that isn’t being shown on TV. Thankfully we have youtube.
And, of course, protesters don’t want to leave their “campsite” so the park can be cleaned even though they would be allowed back.
Why isn’t this being reported more? Some protester goes on a rant saying that Jews control Wall Street. If this was said at a Tea Party event, it would be widely reported and covered. Maybe it is because the more of this that goes on, the more Democrats who support the protests, the more it will reflect on them.
Or how about the guy who is saying that Ghandi is responsible for 600 million people living in poverty and the French revolution was more successful.
How about the protesters defecating on the U.S. flag? Just google it if you have to see it. Somehow it is freedom of speech though.
What about the guy who says Who hates hate speech, but only if it’s against his movement?
Screw it, 99%, meet the 53%.
2. The ever eloquent Joe Biden decides to open his mouth and and tell Americans that if the President’s jobs bill isn’t passed that there will be more rapes and murders. Isn’t this the guy who said Republicans are those who do all the fear-mongering? Hypocrite.
3. Applications for unemployment barely changed. Economy keeps going down the crapper and people are protesting the job creators. Two thumbs up people.
4. Funny how even though Herman Cain is now the Republican presidential front-runner, President Obama has decided to play the race card(or so it seems) while speaking to a forum on American Latino Heritage he made this statement:
I ran for President for the same reason many people came to this country in the first place: Because I believe America should be a place where you can always make it if you try; a place where every child, no matter what they look like, where they come from, should have a chance to succeed.
I still believe in that America. I believe we can be that America again. The truth is, the problems we face today were a long time coming and solving them will take time. In a global economy, it will require us to have the best-educated workforce, the strongest commitment to research and innovation, the most reliable communications and transportation networks.
But with so many people hurting today, there are things we can do right now to make a difference. There are things we should do right now to put more people back to work and to restore a sense of security and fairness that’s been missing for too long.
So that’s why I put forward the American Jobs Act. That’s why I sent Congress a jobs bill made up of the kinds of proposals that, traditionally, Democrats and Republicans have supported. Independent economists who do this for a living have said the American Jobs Act would lead to more growth and nearly 2 million jobs next year. No other jobs plan has that kind of support from actual economists — no plan from Congress, no plan from anybody.
But apparently, none of this matters to Republicans in the Senate.
5. Senate Republicans offered up their own jobs bill. Of course this has about as much chance of succeeding as PresBO’s, but it seems like the “party of no ideas” label can’t be used.
6. Interesting that a terror plot was uncovered by the Justice Department that involves Iran and the Mexican drug cartels at the time when Attorney General Eric Holder is subpoenaed by Congress for his false or inaccurate statements about what he knew and when about the “Fast and Furious” operation. Watch, he’ll say he had to deny knowing anything at the time because of the operational secrets of uncovering the plot. This story is so full of holes that it is pathetic. It sounds more like “Wag the Dog” than anything else. This is pure speculation, I don’t have the evidence that the feds have, but dog gone it, it sure is fishy.
7. Hotair.com reports that the Obama regime is doing away with jobs saved or created and is now using the term “supported”. In other words it is subsidizing jobs. Of course this is par for the course. Subsidize these jobs, the funding only lasts one year and then the states are on the hook for the funding. These are temporary measures that offer would only temporary job growth. Sure, it would make him look good for a while and boost his re-election chances, but then we’re in the same cycle of crap we’re in now. Maybe the goons in Washington and liberals will fall for this, but maybe someone will see the game that is being played like I have and call them out on it. Some other conservatives think that Presbo’s bill was meant to fail from the start, and I can understand their rationale for that as well, but that would be to paint conservatives as just opposed to anything the regime puts forward. I say to that, “put something forward worth passing then”.
