Last, Holder and his buddies say that if the terrorists are not convicted, they aren’t going to be let go anyway. Then why not just lock them up and throw away the key. This decision is the most bizarre in a series of bizarre decisions by this Administration.
Since the increase in the minimum wage – pushed through by liberal Democrats – began in July, there has been a loss of about 330,000 low wage jobs. Entry-level teenagers have been hardest hit. It is George Bush’s fault.
I support people’s right to smoke cigarettes. I also think some anti-smoking people act fairly foolishly. So it seems hard to believe that despite the vehemence of the anti-smoking movement, some smokers still callously discard their butts wherever they wish. So much for their efforts to win friends and influence people.
Mattel recently announced an update to their brand powerhouse – Barbie. My first thought was whether the new dolls were going to have tattoos and navel piercings.
That is a sad statement on the current generation’s penchant for reveling in defiling their bodies. And just as much, it is a sad statement on the baby boomers who are their parents.
The environment is sacrosanct to the left unless…you are one of their friends. In Los Angeles, when DreamWorks wanted to move their headquarters to Playa Vista – a wetlands — there was nothing but support because it was Steven Spielberg and David Geffen, who are heroes to the left.
Now Ed Roski has gotten the California State Legislature to exempt him from any environmental impact studies for his soon-to-be-built football stadium to attract an NFL team to Los Angeles. The price to get that done was a guarantee that all the construction and post-construction jobs would be for union members.
As long as you have the right friends you can damn the environment. State Senate Majority leader Democrat Darrell Steinberg stated this was not open season on the environmental laws. That is the official policy of the State of California – until you have the right friends or the right employees to push through another waiver. Mr. Steinberg and his cohorts might realize the harm done to the economy by the stringent environmental laws and overturn them instead of handing out favors to their gladhanders.
While reliving my past recently, I was reminded of one of the big lies in history. On one of the Woodstock CDs, the announcer comes on stage and tells the audience that from that point forward, the concert was going to be free and the promoters were going to take a financial bath. Yeah, right.
The promoters have the gift that keeps on giving and will be able to support their grandchildren. In fact, I hear that for the 50th anniversary of Woodstock they are inviting all the surviving veterans of the event back to Yasgur’s farm. They can bring their grandchildren and show them where it all happened. It will be interesting when someone gets on stage and does their best Country Joe McDonald imitation and says “Give me an F.”
There may be no clearer indication of this administration than the interview of Valerie Jarrett by Campbell Brown on CNN. Ms. Brown confronted Jarrett, a senior adviser and assistant to the President, about the issue of the WH attacking Fox News. Forgetting that Jarrett had no answer to the perceived bias from MSNBC, she really revealed the true nature of this WH. She indicated that they were going to “speak truth to power.” Ms. Jarrett does not seem to realize she works for the most powerful person on this planet.
The WH still thinks they are community organizers running a campaign instead of running a country.
I have had the good fortune to be at White House events a half-dozen times. I know how the process works to get admitted to for an event. I am convinced that the crashers of the recent state dinner are empirical evidence of the incompetence of the Obama Administration.
