What's that b______'s name again?

I don't know how it happened, but Bob Schieffer decided to be a newsman

CBS reporter Bob Schieffer decided to ask Nancy Pelosi the tough questions and cornered her on her Congress’s record on the economy. How did she react? Let’s just say you could stamp ‘hypocrite’ on her forehead after this.

“We’re talking in kind of a different way, when unemployment went to 5% under George Bush. What you said then, that Americans are struggling with skyrocketing energy prices, gas was only $3 a gas then, and you say this morning this is January 4th, 2008, this morning’s job report confirms what most Americans already knew. President Bush’s economic policies have failed our country’s middle class. I mean, aren’t Republicans entitled to say, you know, if gas was $3 and unemployment was 5% and the President has failed the American people, don’t they have a right to say that this President has failed the American people?” Schieffer asked (emphasis ours).

Her response?

“Well, if you want to go into the past, we can talk about the past all you want,” she said before adding that Americans are looking to the future.

Unfortunately, this comes from a woman and an administration that has defined their entire time in office by the actions and ‘failures’ of the Bush administration – Glenn Beck
Damn  that was good!

GOP Immigration Doesn’t Alienate All Hispanics

According to the 2010 Census, the Hispanic population in the United States increased by 43 percent over the last ten years, leaving the final tally for the largest minority group in America at 50.5 million people. That being said, the Democratic Party may not be the demographic’s forever favorite. A Zogby poll conducted in 2009 surveyed Hispanic members of religious denominations and found that a majority of likely Hispanic voters believe that illegal immigration is too high, and results from inadequate enforcement. Their voices were heard the following year in a CNN Exit poll, where 38 percent of Hispanics reportedly voted Republican in the 2010 Congressional elections, and resulted in more Republican Hispanics’ elections to office ...

USB Monitor

Now we need a computer that runs off its own USB
USB 24''
USB-powered monitors started out small but are finally getting big enough to serve as a main display. The 24-inch ASUS MS248B is brought to life with a single cable courtesy of USB 3.0's extra current and bandwidth. What's more, this is achieved with few compromises: the LED monitor is just 16.5mm (0.66-inches) thick, does 1080p with a 2ms response time and has a 10000000:1 contrast ratio (although this last spec requires the usual seasoning). Some extras did have to be thrown overboard to bring power consumption down -- there's no additional USB or audio ports, webcam, card reader or ability to daisy-chain. But then, how much could you achieve with a mere 9W? engadget
I can't find a price for this, but Amazon has this item.
Lilliput 7" Um-70 Mini USB Monitor(non-touch Screen) by Lilliput Buy new$1,099.95 $109.99
I'll guess then that the ASUS 24-inch ASUS MS248B  will debut sell for $654,000, but drop to $129.95 six months later.

Wasserman Flunks Another Test

Debbie Wasserman's Load of crap

German Confederates

Confederates on the Rhine
General Robert E Cartman

I'll chance it, and say that Yoni Appelbaum may safely be placed in the column of progressive thinkers.  And sub-categorized— like all Liberals, as consumed by the unforgivable sin of slavery in America?  AWK!. No, not us!  Not we who are in full thrall of our progressive government.  I mean  African slaves— the ones sold by other Africans for transport to America.  That slavery. Anyway, he's presently appalled by —
"On a warm spring morning about 50 miles north of Berlin, Union troops and their Confederate rivals prepare for battle." That's the attention-grabbing lede of a PRI story on the bizarre phenomenon of Germans reenacting the American Civil War. The reporter explains that many participants feel "a personal connection to the war," and that everyone with whom she spoke took care to note that 200,000 Germans had taken part in the fight -

But the two parties to the fraternal conflict exert unequal appeal. When Germans gather at the reenactments, "more people want to be on the Confederate side." That produces a surreal spectacle. Germans marching about in butternut and gray, pretending to dwell in Dixie. With Teutonic precision, they have replicated every detail, down to the brass buttons and the brightly colored piping on their trousers.   

They have missed only one thing. In their search for an anodyne conflict, lacking the baggage of their historical wars of mastery, these Germans have taken a wrong turn. The units they prefer to recreate fought to preserve an abhorrent system that kept more than three million men, women, and children in bondage while denying their very humanity. THE HUMANITY!
Eat me Yoni.  To say that the rank and file Confederate soldier was fighting to save the institution of slavery, is like saying that the people don't like Obama must be racist. Which of course is what Yoni's pals do say, but you catch my drift.

 In 1861,  1.4 percent of whites in the country (or 4.8 percent of southern whites)  owned one or more slaves.*  To say that the  750,000 to 1,000,000 men who wore the Butternut, of whom approximately 258,000 died, did so to protect the institution of slavery is preposterous.  So to is  the proposition that the Union rank and file were primarily motivated by the slave issue.  Some did, and were,  but  state's rights, and saving the union were, respectively, what most of these men fought for.

"Take the [Germans] out of the Union Army and we could whip the Yankees easily," Robert E. Lee allegedly remarked. The quote, likely apocryphal. [Rhine]

He said this too.. In an 1856 letter to his wife Mary Custis Lee, Robert E. Lee called slavery "a moral and political evil." Yet he concluded that black slaves were immeasurably better off here than in Africa, morally, socially and physically.  Black educators like  Thomas Sowell have pragmatically agreed with that assessment. At any rate, it happened, and it's over.

Have some  Jägermeister and chill Yoni.

Richar Glover- Tattoo Climate Deniers

Richard Glover's 'Denier" Tattoo
The dangers of bone-headed beliefs (sic) 

  Surely it's time for climate-change deniers to have their opinions forcibly tattooed on their bodies.

Not necessarily on the forehead; I'm a reasonable man. Just something along their arm or across their chest so their grandchildren could say, ''Really? You were one of the ones who tried to stop the world doing something? And why exactly was that, granddad?'' Richard Glover

Richard Glover's 'Denier" Tattoo

Ya-know, Gore was right.  This debate is over.  For the most part,  anyone who still believes in man-caused climate change is a True Believer, or is pushing the progressive One World  agenda.  In either case, offering proof to the contrary is wasted effort.  Yesterday Anonymoose (O-Club) had this observation, which pretty much pigeon-holes the world's Richard Glovers. It's all about control.

20110605 15:24 Anonymoose Though it's not worth reading an entire article, once again a group of internationalists, in this case the World Bank, are trying to get some kind, any kind, of a worldwide tax, both to set a precedent, and to have a continual stream of money into their filthy pockets.

In this case, a "CO2 levy" on jet and shipping fuel.
