ALOHA, ALL!! It’s Friday – so let’s start off with a re-cap of the week’s news from PJTV:
Kind of puts it all into perspective doesn’t it????
In other news:
“Fair Share” rigamarole. Is The Buffett Rule an Election Year Gimmick? “For all of his rhetoric that the measure would “stabilize our debt and deficits for the next decade,” the Buffett Rule would bring in only $47 billion in revenue in ten years. To put those numbers in context, President Obama’s budget calls for adding $6.7 trillion to the national debt. So the Buffett Rule would cover just 0.007% of all of Obama’s debt and .001% of Obama’s spending.” Contrast with this: A 1% Spending Cut Is 6 Times As Effective As The Buffett Rule
I don’t think the Dems want to see this video: Ten years later, ANWR remains closed, gas prices have skyrocketed, and Obama continues to block additional energy production. Or maybe the Dems have seen it. Looks like they are defecting from their Dear Leader: Obama Faces Defeat on Keystone Pipeline
VEEP talk. Of Potential Veeps, Condoleeza Rice Has Highest Favorability Among Republicans “Condi’s ticket-balancing credentials are obvious, she would more than hold her own in a debate, she’s been tested in the national spotlight and she has a kind of grace and gravitas that seemingly leave her unfazed by anything. She’s equally comfortable defending controversial foreign policy as she is playing classical piano for the queen. She’s certainly a compelling choice, and I can understand why she polled as well as she did.”
“Jobs” plans? New Obama Plan Would Allow Workers To Keep Unemployment Benefits After They Are Hired and DC Employees Model Congress by Collecting Unemployment While Employed “Is it any coincidence that such a large scale corruption and theft took place in the shadows of the US Capitol Building and White House?”
Final Thought: “…the Supreme Court had unleashed a predator that was oozing slime into the political system.” Nancy Pelosi, Congresswoman and expert on slime and political system predators
