Once a commie ...

 Where was Putin on  9-18?

Jan. 29 (Bloomberg) -- Russia urged China to dump its Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac bonds in 2008 in a bid to force a bailout of the largest U.S. mortgage-finance companies, former Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson said.

Paulson learned of the “disruptive scheme” while attending the Beijing Summer Olympics, according to his memoir, “On The Brink.”

The Russians made a “top-level approach” to the Chinese “that together they might sell big chunks of their GSE holdings to force the U.S. to use its emergency authorities to prop up these companies,” Paulson said, referring to the acronym for government sponsored entities. The Chinese declined, he said.

Russia’s five-day war with U.S. ally Georgia started on Aug. 8, the same day as the opening ceremonies of the Beijing Games. Prime Minister Vladimir Putin told U.S. President George W. Bush during those ceremonies that “war has started,” according to Dmitry Peskov, Putin’s spokesman.[Full story]

No one person could have engineered the run on our cash reserves, but nations acting in concert?  Ratcommie nations?  Hmmmm.

There are no allegations of any wiretap plot in the FBI affidavit, and a law enforcement official has conceded that the four men were not attempting to wiretap or intercept calls.  Furthermore, legal representation for the accused has gone on record stating there were no intentions to bug phones in the Senator’s office.  The Atlantic’s own Politics blog recently published a post acknowledging there was no attempt to wiretap.

We kindly ask you to issue a correction/retraction to the story.

We have been/will be making similar requests of other news sources to correct similar errors.  Some, such as the Washington Post, MSNBC’s David Shuster, and Talking Points Memo already have posted corrections or retractions.

In addition, Mr. O’Keefe is 25-years old.

  2. General Motors' will pay Toyota vehicle owners a cash allowance of up to $1,000, or offer free financing if they switch to a GM car or truck. The promotion will run through February.

Democrats and Republicans Can Be Differentiated from Their Faces

That's what these guys claim. 

Individuals' faces communicate a great deal of information about them. Although some of this information tends to be perceptually obvious (such as race and sex), much of it is perceptually ambiguous, without clear or obvious visual cues.

Methodology/Principal Findings

After Climategate, I no longer accept the methodology of other so called scientists. I'm doing my own double-blind test right here, in public.  Can you tell, just by looking at their faces, whom is what?  Findings will be published.

Abortion=Gay Dating

 CBS's Moral Equivalency
 .... two men excitedly watching the game, before their hands brush as they both reach into a bowl of chips. Suddenly, the two begin making out, much to the shock of a guy sitting close by.   - Man Crunch Commercial

As a sop to the leftards currently going bonkers over Heisman Trophy quarterback Tim Tebow's "my mom was advised to have an abortion, but she said no; so here I am" Super Bowl commercial, CBS is considering the "Man Crunch" gay dating service commercial as an offset.

If I was a gay dater, frankly, I'd be a little pissed. The counter message to Tebow would be "avoid those stretch marks ladies; abort the little bastard."  Instead, CBS seemingly sees gay dating as  morally equivalent to infanticide.  What a country.

And FWIW, and don't ask me why this is, but the people who watch football would gag, even vomit, at the sight of men swapping spit.  Two nice looking women, on the other lip ... .

'Not true' sums it up
Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito let a pained expression cross his face and muttered, "Not true." He was reacting to President Obama's description of the high court's ruling in the Citizens United case, and he was entirely right. But the words aptly sum up the entire State of the Union Address.

The unions are starting to feel the pinch, as companies are now indicating that they can no longer make concessions. This means that either union membership has to give up some of their benefits and pay, or everyone gets canned.
