So far, this has been a good week to observe and laugh!
A) By the time this edition of The Claw is posted, Amanda Knox will have already spent a night in her own bed in Seattle. Her lawyers will have also fielded at least 40 calls about book deals, 15 about movie deals, and 100 about porn deals.
B) All I can really say about this story is...See! It works! Get rid of the incentives and they will leave! Alabama found a way to cut the cost of public education without having any impact on the kids. It gets even better. The folks who were protesting the new law were all concerned about racial profiling against Mexicans, but the first illegal alien arrested under the new law is from Yemen, not Mexico, so he’s not only an illegal but also a possible terrorism suspect!
C) What happens when the drug addled flower children of the 60s raise children in their liberal mindset? You get the Wall Street protesters of today. Let this be a lesson to all those women who think it will be okay for them to smoke pot during pregnancies. Take a gander at their list of demands and see if any of them would work. Chances are you are going to see them as nothing more than typical leftist utopian dogma that has exactly zero chance of working in a world with any reality...but they are good for comic relief! While the protests are spreading to more liberal locals, one thing remains constant, and completely unmentioned by the media. This group of left wingnuts is almost exclusively WHITE. The media blasted the Tea Party constantly with the charges of non-diversity and extreme racism, but what about the lack of diversity with these groups?
D) In a number of speeches over the past 2 years, Barack Obama has mention trade agreements with South Korea, Panama, and Colombia, which he said he wanted passed quickly as they would help our economy and job creation. These agreements were negotiated by the W Administration, but held back from Congress while the union-owned Democrats held the House. You see, Big Labor disapproves. On Monday, The Won finally sent the agreements to Congress.
E) Big Labor isn’t gonna like this bit of news, either. Meeeechigan is the cradle of Big Labor, but the state’s legislature and Governor are now considering giving the workers of that state the freedom to choose whether or not they want to join a union, instead of workers being forced to join a union to keep their jobs. Liberals will have a cow, but then again the only right to choose that they support is regarding abortion. The Crawfish wants this to become federal law as well, since I am forced to be a union member in a right-to-work state because my employer’s building is on federal property.
F) “You don’t have some inherent right just to get a certain amount of profit” sayeth the Community Organizer in Chief. Oh really? Will you puh-leeeeeze show me where the Constitution allows the government to limit the profits of any company. I realize that banks are one of the declared enemy businesses according to our liberal fascist Administration, but how a business operates is not within the purview of our federal government.
G) The whole Bank of America debit card monthly fee issue came up because of the new Dodd-Frank financial regulation law, and an amendment put into that law by Senator Dick “Turban” Durbin. Durbin portrayed himself as a populist taking on the evil banking empire and their highly-paid lobbying machine, when in reality he was doing the bidding of the highly-paid lobbying machine of the big retailers like Wal-mart. That monthly fee is rightfully called the "Durbin Fee." So how much did his campaign war chest get filled in order to make debit card users “pay their fair share”? A hint of that is found in the story. Just look for a reference to the Podesta Group.
H) Hall of Fame quarterback Fran Tarkenton has a great column regarding public education. He puts the teachers unions issue in simple terms that all sports fans can understand. What would happen if the NFL was run by the same rules as teachers unions?
I) I’m sure that this will not come as a surprise to anyone who reads my columns, but Eric Holder has been proven yet again to have committed perjury in his Congressional testimony involving Gunrunner/Fast and Furious. Holder testified in May of this year that he had only recently learned of the operation, but now there are e-mail memos showing that he was briefed on the op in July of 2010. We also know that he knew of the op well before that since he gave a speech in 2009 in which he told the Mexican audience that the operation was underway. Can we get an impeachment started?
J) Neal Boortz takes us on a trip on the Way Back Machine to examine the root cause of the housing collapse, and why it is NOT Bush’s fault. He also asks why the media has completely ignored the story.
K) On Tuesday, The Won said “It's time to pass this jobs bill and get America working again!” Senator Mitch McConnell tried to do just that. He called for an immediate vote on Obama’s “Save My Job Bill” by trying to attach it to another piece of legislation. Senate Majority Leader Dingy Harry Reid blocked the move. Obama continues to blame the GOP for delaying his bill, but who blocked a vote on it?
L) On top of that, Dingy and the Senate Dems are changing all of Obama’s provisions to pay for the “Save My Job Bill”, since all of the tax and fee increases presented by The Chosen One are a bit unpalatable leading up to next year’s election.
M) Don’tcha just love it when a liberal blowhard gets completely schooled on live television? Once again we see the pattern. Liberal women are loud, obnoxious, ugly, and never know the facts. Conservative women are restrained, attractive, and smart.
N) This retired Squid has just one thing to say regarding this video...OOH-RAH!
