The Shirley Sherrod Fix Is In

Robert Gibbs Apologizes to Shirley Sherrod

How many times did he apologize? How many times did he deflect questions concerning President Obama's involvement?

Gibbs isn't even in the same league as Vilsack who took one for the team, threw himself under the bus and fell on his sword all in a matter of minutes. He also deflected questions about President Obama's involvement.

White House apologizes to Shirley Sherrod, says administration wrongly fired black employee for tape

"The buck stops with me." "This is a teachable moment." "I accepted full responsibility for them."

I can almost feel the hot poker sent to Vilsack by the White House. His Captain will not go down with the ship. In fact, he was the first one off when trouble happened.

Of course, this was about agriculture and they still fertilize with natural substances around here. At least that is what I thought I smelled late this afternoon.

UPDATE: The CBS Early Morning Show had Sherrod on to wimper and console. Oh, they also spoke about that racist Breitbart who Sherrod may sue, but she isn't "actively" thinking about it. She just wanted to mention it on national TV as an aside, because Breitbart hasn't even called to apologize (like the rest of the world) and she doesn't think he will. Well, at least as far as she knows him, which she doesn't at all, she doesn't think he will apologize.

Maybe she can be the star of Obama's Apology Tour II (III, IV, V?).

UPDATE II: All must be forgiven. The Captain has called Sherrod and apologized for calling her a racist after she said she had stopped being a racist and also for throwing her under the bus because of his misunderstanding of what she said. He must've been paying attention with the same set of ears he had on for 20 years in one of Rev. Wright's pew. All is well in the universe now that we know who the real racists are.

Maybe The One will now call the NAACP and apologize to them for thinking they actually represented colored folks. "We are one people. We are one nation. I’m an NAACP American."

Why Should Democrats Discuss Their Failed Economy And Joblessness When They Can Yell RACISM!!

Beer Summit! Will Sherrod And Brietbart Be Invited???

President Barack Obama who has been known to accuse others of acting stupidly now has a chance to build a bridge from acts of real stupidity to a self awareness of personal stupidity. It would be a very short bridge.

USDA will reconsider firing

Maybe Obama will find it in his stupidly acting heart to allow Tom Vilsack to bus the table, but the NAACP should not be invited. They should be attending classes on racism. And stupidity.

A Great Quote

“The liberties of the american people were dependent on the ballot box, the jury box, and the cartridge box.”

The Health Care Reform "No Tax Increase" Lie

From my email a post about just one of the tax increases that Democrats have or are planning to pass into law. All that "no tax increase" talk is baloney as is the lie that no bill that increases the deficit will be tolerated. The leadership is lying. They know it and we know it, but the blatant lies just continue to be told.
2011 W-2 Tax Forms and


If this doesn't get to you, then check your pulse. You may be a flat line...

Should you want to verify this, go to, enter "H.R. 3590" in the search box and look for "CRS Summaries." This is what you'll find.

Title IX Revenue Provisions—Subtitle A: Revenue Offset "(Sec. 9002) Requires employers to include in the W-2 form of each employee the aggregate cost of applicable employer-sponsored group health coverage that is excludable from the employee's gross income (excluding the value of contributions to flexible spending arrangements)."

Starting in 2011—next year—the W-2 tax form sent by your employer will be increased to show the value of whatever health insurance you are provided. It doesn't matter if you're retired. Your gross income WILL go up by the amount of insurance your employer paid for. So you’ will be required to pay taxes on a larger sum of money than you actually received. Take the tax form you just finished for 2009 and see what $15,000.00 or $20,000.00 additional gross income does to your tax debt. That's what you'll pay next year. For many it puts you into a much higher bracket. This is how the government is going to buy insurance for the fifteen (15) percent that don't have insurance and it's only part of the tax increases, but it's not really a "tax increase" as such, it a redefinition of your taxable income.

Also, go to Kiplinger's and read about the thirteen (13) tax changes for 2010 that could affect you.
There should be no talk of defunding legislation such as this. There has to be action to repeal this and all the other onerous legislation Congress has passed in 2009 and 2010 against the will of the people. Those in Congress that do not vote to repeal should be voted out of elected office.
