Poles Protest Weather
Polish people are protesting weather! And if that wasn't polish enough, they want the UN to hurry and make the weather stop changing!
...protesters in Poznan waved a banner reading: "Stop clowning around, get serious about climate action."Everyone knows businessmen are immune from changes in the weather...
Others carried pictures of seas inundating cities and villages, and the suited hand of a businessman squeezing the planet.
Obama Admits He IS the Cause for the Rise in Gun Sales
"I believe in common-sense gun safety laws, and I believe in the second amendment," Obama said at a news conference. "Lawful gun owners have nothing to fear. I said that throughout the campaign. I haven't indicated anything different during the transition. I think people can take me at my word."Now when is he going to admit to being the cause (along with his socialist policies) to the largest stock market crash following a presidential election?

Timothy Egan: Jealous Lefty
The unlicensed pipe fitter known as Joe the Plumber is out with a book this month, just as the last seconds on his 15 minutes are slipping away. I have a question for Joe: Do you want me to fix your leaky toilet?
Joe would love for you to fix his leaky toilet, Timothy...if you can. Obviously, Joe has the skills to write a book. Do you have the skills to fix a toilet? We all know how mad you are that someone could just get a book deal simply for being in the public eye. (Have you mentioned Paris Hilton and her music career anywhere in your rants Timothy?) No? Just a little pissed that maybe someone other than a journalist can write a book? It's quite obvious anyone can write an opinion piece for the NYT, or a blog, but getting it read is quite another thing.
But Timothy goes on:
With a résumé full of failure, he now thinks he can join the profession of Mark Twain, George Orwell and Joan Didion.Actually Timothy, he is joining the ranks of people such as yourself, Barack Obama, Bill Clinton, and other people thrust into the spotlight by the media.
I would like to question YOU. Why do you get to write a guest opinion piece of the NYT? Why should you get to voice your opinion on something personal to you and pretty much no one else? There are millions of other people from whom I would like to hear who never get a chance to voice an opinion. Something similar to your thought here: "...voices in Iran, North Korea or China struggle to get past a censor’s gate." Voices here in America struggle to get heard right here at the New York Times. There are no consevative voices at the Times (David Brooks is NOT a conservative).
So stop your vitriolic whining. With Obama as president, I'm sure the government will crack down on differing opinions with such things as the UnFairness Doctrine (that should pep you up some).
And just because I am fair, here are some books by Timothy Egan. Let's allow the consumer to decide.
Tom Brokaw is a Socialist
Let's talk for a moment about consumer responsibility when it comes to the auto industries. As soon as gas prices dropped, consumers moved back to the larger cars once again. The SUVs are the big gas consumers. Why not take this opportunity to put a tax on gasoline, bump it back up to $4 a gallon where people were prepared to pay for that, and use that revenue for alternative energy and as a signal to the consumers: "Those days are gone. We're not going to have gasoline that you could just fill up your tank for 20 bucks anymore."
So Tom Brokaw does NOT believe in consumer choice. He believes government must enact laws and taxes to alter consumer behavior. This is not only socialism at its finest, but this borders on communism. I guess Tom Brokaw wouldn't mind if consumers had to wait in lines for consumables if it "benefited everybody" and saved the planet.
Thank you comrade Brokaw. The state will reward you for this.

New Word - COMPASCISM
Timing is Everything
It must feel like that for USA Today writer, Adam Shell. His article, "President-elect Obama's actions perk up stock market" in today's edition, updated 8 hours ago as of this writing. In it he praises Obama on "...hasn't even moved into the White House yet. But Wall Street is already showering him with praise for injecting confidence into the battered psyche of investors and working quickly to hatch a plan meant to jolt the economy out of its worst funk in decades."
Simply amazing. Here's some more: "Stocks soared last week after Obama moved aggressively to fill the power vacuum until he's sworn in and demonstrated his commitment to dig the USA out of its economic rut. The Dow has rallied 17% during its current five-session win streak — its best five-session run since 1932. The rallies coincided with Obama-related news and public appearances where he introduced his economic dream team and sent a clear message that he'll do whatever it takes to repair the economy. Jack Ablin, chief investment officer at Harris Private Bank, says the so-called Obama Factor has been "a solid force behind the recent moves in the stock market." Reminder to self: NEVER USE HARRIS PRIVATE BANK!
More from Adam: "So what has Obama done to restore hope to investors? •He's made the economy priority No. 1, •He's chosen a first-rate economic team, and •He's moved quickly to fix things.
REALITY CHECK:Down we go again: Fourth-worst drop ever for DowBy Sara Lepro and Tim Paradis, AP Business Writers
Wow Adam, how could you be SOOOOOO WRONGGGGGGGGGGGG!!!???
The Dow lost 679.95 points to close at about 8,149. There have only been three days in market history with bigger point losses for the Dow -- the Monday after the Sept. 11 attacks, and Sept. 29 and Oct. 15 of this year.
Let's here it for Adam Shell of USA Today! He get's the DOH! Award by Homer Simpson. I bet you feel like a bit of an idiot right about now, don't you, Adam?
