The Week in Review

leave a comment »

Well, socialists have been quite busy this week bailing out financial institutions and now we have Paulson, The secretary of the infinitely stupid, calling for a $700 Billion bailout package. If that isn’t good enough, the bald headed Keynesian pillow biter wants to bail out foreign banks that have operations in the US. Enough. I wonder why the banks get bailed out, but the DMFs that borrowed beyond their means do not? Not that I believe either side should be bailed out, but if it is our money, shouldn’t we at least benefit directly by this latest exercise in corporate welfare? I also find it highly problematic that Paulson calls Warren Buffet for advice. Wouldn’t that be giving a trader inside information? The incestuous relationship between the Federal Reserve, the treasury and financial industry should be enough to send anyone screaming from the room.

Caryn Elaine Johnson or Whoopi Goldberg is still an idiot. I still haven’t hear or seen apostasy on her part, and I imagine none will be forthcoming. If ignorance is bliss, then she must be the happiest person in the world.

All the eco-terrorists and other neo-com lemmings must be ecstatic about the CERN collider being shutdown for repairs. I am quite certain they will be happy that the Gluon footprint will not increase in the short term. It seems a transformer needed work. These devices use a lot of energy you know.

Everyone seems to be waiting for Joe Biden to stick his foot in his mouth again. We didn’t have to wait long, as referenced by his latest speech in Virginia. I wonder if Joe will ever find his coal-mining ancestors.

What’s all the hubbub with HRC, Saracuda, and the Stop Iran Rally? It seems that HRC didn’t want to share the stage with Palin, and in an effort to actually try to help Obama, not only pulled out of the rally, but had the organizers disinvite Palin, and HRC & Co. gave them cover with three lawyers writing letters on how having only one side represented may interfere with their tax exempt status. What rubbish. Score one for Palin with the Jewish community on this one.

Charles Rangel, the Democrat representative from Harlem seems to be having tax issues. It seems that in addition to owning four apartments in Manhattan, at least two of which are rent controlled, it seems the chairman of the ways and means committee failed to report income. Can you imagine renting an apartment in Manhattan for less than $500 a month? If not, Ask Charlie.

The story that seems to be lying low right now is the affects of hurricane Ike. Many people in Houston are still without power and other utilities. This does not seem to be getting the same play as Katrina. One reason is that Texas is a red state. There is no political capital there for Obama and his de facto public relations firm, the lamestream media.

Lastly, I will be changing the programming of my blog to some extent. I will be publishing commentary on a regular basis, MWF, and now I will produce a podcast that will be published every Sunday. To all of those who have supported my blog by reading it, I give my eternal thanks. The best is yet to come.

Thank you as always for reading this blog.
