Obama slams Wall Street over bonuses...
'Height of irresponsibility'...
Now, the Obama served Waygu steak, costing $100 per steak, at his White House arm twisting session over the need for a stimulus package that America cannot afford, but has to have because Americans are suffering so much. Maybe the champagne was cheap. You know, as an offset.
Japanese steak to address what an American Congress has done to us. Just who is marinated here? I mean we're cooked, but O's admin has to be lubed.
Shoulda been ribs soaked in Jack and rubbed with cane and served with a cold Bud with some serious slaw, baked beans and Chess Pie. Serve that and you can talk the Devil outta his own tail afterwards.
Nice job Barack. Fortunatelt, DC ain't quite yet Chi Town.
Morning Bell: The Pelosi-Obama-Reid Trillion Dollar Debt Plan
What Hillary Clinton couldn't do as First Nurse years ago, this bill will make government the default care giver for the unemployed and 3/4's of children in the United States. Recap: socialized medicine.
The bill will place the federal bureaucracy in charge, not parents and local school boards, of our children's education. "The New York Times reports today, the bill will “profoundly change the federal government’s role in education, which has traditionally been the responsibility of state and local government.”" If federal bureaucracy was already in charge we'd have Al Gore's global warming bilge, without any questions, being taught as sound science.
Then you get to the pretty little
$1 billion for Amtrak - a money pit that still can't run on time or full - bring back the smoking cars
$2 billion for child care subsidies - federal control for an early age
$50 million for the National Endowment for the Arts - government has ruined the arts
$400 million for global warming research - better to research the coming ice age
$2.5 billion for clean coal - private business could do this for less and faster
$650 million for even more digital TV conversion coupons - 5 years lead up, so postpone and raise cost
$600 million for new government cars - won't save Detroit from Washington
$7 billion for modernizing federal buildings - tear down half of them for new business
$150 million for the Smithsonian - government shouldn't be in there
$54 billion for Economic Office and Small Business Administration programs - what a waste and both proven failures
All of the above programs (and many more not listed) are ineffective and in some cases even harmful to the country and business, but POR wants to throw good money after bad as payback to their people.
You like to have a smoke, real french fries or salt? Too freakin bad loser, Bloomie has decided it is the prerogative of his government to stop you from having what you like and has stopped business from catering to their customers. You and business, jeez, what a pair of problems for Bloomie's world. He has it tough enough ruling his minions from his limo and now you're gonna fight him about what your food tastes like? Careful, he'll send you to The Tombs for being unpatriotic, you selfish you-know-whats.
Mayor Bloomberg Declares War On ... Salt
Citizens Revolt, Claim NYC Is Turning Into Nanny State
This is just Mayor Bloomberg's latest health initiative, following on the heels of a smoking ban, a ban on trans fats and forcing restaurants to post the calorie contents.
Now if he could get into doing something about smells, maybe he could buy fabreeze by the gallon or, better yet, just get the bums off the streets.
A 68-year-old diner was in a critical condition with respiratory failure and two others, aged 55 and 69, were in serious condition, Iwase said.

In addition, banking regulations need to be internationally co-ordinated. Market regulations should be global as well. National governments also need to co-ordinate their macroeconomic policies in order to avoid wide currency swings and other disruption.
Of course internationalizing our banks would make it far easier for Soros to have a one-stop shopping for short selling currency, a practice he finds so repugnant that he keeps making billions of dollars through it just to show us how wrong it is.
George Soros, who broke the Bank of England through short selling, who financed BDS to the tune of $23, 581,000 and a convicted felon for insider trading, may be the president behind the president. Obama, through a spokesman, repudiated Soros on his anti-Israel comments, but kept on meeting and talking with Soros and, of course, kept accepting Soros money and support either directly or indirectly through the multitude of Soros fronts such as MoveOn.org. Obama also had a Soros associate, Jim Johnson Vice Chairman of Perseus, to guide the search for Obama's Vice President.
Soros has been more than just a sugar daddy for liberal causes in the Democrat Party. He has bee the driving force to reshape the party by buying it by, first; drying up donations by individuals to the party then forcing the cash strapped Democrat Party to bow to his wishes to regain the money through restarted donations, 527's that can end run the rule against foreign money and, second; to regain momentum with boots-on-the-ground workers from the 527s and unions and, three; to finally accept direction from the Soros backed groups as well as staff their party and campaigns with Soros people.
Soros owns the Democrat Party, they are now a subsidiary of his thus he owns the Democrat led Congress and Obama.
The top seven groups funding and directing the Democrat Party:
Democrat core groups:
1. America Coming Together funded by George Soros, Peter Lewis & unions
2. America Votes funded by George Soros, Peter Lewis & Herb Sandler
3. Center for American Progress funded by George Soros, Peter Lewis, Steve Bing & Herb Sandler
4. Joint Victory Campaign 2004 funded by George Soros, Peter B. Lewis, Steve Bing, Linda Pritzker, Dan Lewis, Agnes Varis, Herb Sandler, Marion Sandler, S. Daniel Abraham, Harold Snyder, Lewis B. Cullman, Anne Getty Earhart, Marcy Carsey, Susie Tompkins Buell, and Richard Rosenthal.
5. Media Fund funded by Joint Victory Fund (see above)
MoveOn.org funded by Linda Pritzker, George Soros, Peter B. Lewis
7. Thunder Road Group – A shadow group reported to be the nerve center and strategic leader of all the above listed groups and others.
"The Shadow Party is the real power driving the Democrat machine. It is a network of radicals dedicated to transforming our constitutional republic into a socialist hive. The leader of these radicals is ... George Soros. He has essentially privatized the Democratic Party, bringing it under his personal control. The Shadow Party is the instrument through which he exerts that control. ... It works by siphoning off hundreds of millions of dollars in campaign contributions that would have gone to the Democratic Party in normal times, and putting those contributions at the personal disposal of Mr. Soros. He then uses that money to buy influence and loyalty where he sees fit. In 2003, Soros set up a network of privately-owned groups which acts as a shadow or mirror image of the Party. It performs all the functions we would normally expect the real Democratic Party to perform, such as shaping the Party platform, fielding candidates, running campaigns, and so forth. However, it performs these functions under the private supervision of Mr. Soros and his associates. The Shadow Party derives its power from its ability to raise huge sums of money. By controlling the Democrat purse strings, the Shadow Party can make or break any Democrat candidate by deciding whether or not to fund him. During the 2004 election cycle, the Shadow Party raised more than $300 million for Democrat candidates, prompting one of its operatives, MoveOn PAC director Eli Pariser, to declare, 'Now it’s our party. We bought it, we own it…'
"Soros in 2004 spent some $26 million trying, unsuccessfully, to defeat President Bush’s reelection bid, a task Soros called “the central focus of my life” and “a matter of life and death.” He has likened Republicans generally, and the Bush administration in particular, to “the Nazi and communist regimes” in the sense that they are “all engaged in the politics of fear.” “Indeed,” he wrote in 2006, “the Bush administration has been able to improve on the techniques used by the Nazi and Communist propaganda machines by drawing on the innovations of the advertising and marketing industries.” Soros elaborated on this theme at the January 2007 World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, where he told reporters: “America needs to . . . go through a certain de-Nazification process.”
Soros has been a staunch supporter of Hillary Clinton, who, in turn, has long admired Soros and shares many of his agendas. At a 2004 "Take Back America" conference in Washington, DC, Mrs. Clinton introduced Soros with these words:
“Now, among the many people who have stood up and said, ‘I cannot sit by and let this happen to the country I love,’ is George Soros, and I have known George Soros for a long time now, and I first came across his work in the former Soviet Union, in Eastern Europe, when I was privileged to travel there, both on my own and with my husband on behalf of our country. ... [W]e need people like George Soros, who is fearless, and willing to step up when it counts.” (Cited in David Horowitz and Richard Poe, The Shadow Party, p. 53)
In December of 2006, Soros met with Democratic presidential hopeful Barack Obama in his (Soros') New York office. Soros had previously hosted a fund-raiser for Obama during the latter's 2004 campaign for the Senate. On January 16, 2007, Obama announced the creation of a presidential exploratory committee, and within hours Soros sent the senator a contribution of $2,100, the maximum amount allowable under campaign finance laws. Later that week the New York Daily News reported that Soros would back Obama over Senator Hillary Clinton, whom he had supported in the past. Soros' announcement was seen as a repudiation of Clinton's presidential aspirations, though Soros said he would support the New York senator were she to win the Democratic nomination.
President Soros? He is, at least, the power behind the throne and an unelected power who despises the United States of America and capitalism. Does that make Obama the Veep which makes Biden what?
6" of snow on top of 1.5" of ice on top of previous ice and snow is, I have no doubt, pay back for all of Bush's sins to us here in fly over country.
We are all hoping that aLgore's global warming comes to a town near us soon. If so, we will warm up the trucks and drive however far to hopefully get a glimpse of it and, if we're lucky, to make a photograph for the album.
We'll put that photograph right next to Aunt Bertha standing in the shadow of the world's largest peach pie that we made back in aught eight. They'll be keepers for sure.
