These came in too late to include in my digest of weekly news, so here they are:
Last week Obama pointed to a Toledo, Ohio restaurant as example of indirect beneficiary of Chrysler bailout. You know, the bailout kept the Chrysler plant open and in turn small businesses as the ma and pa restaurant in the story flourished; blah, blah, blah.....
Well, according to the local ABC station, the very same restaurant has announced that they have to go out of business after 70 years because of the economy and the workplace smoking ban approved by Ohio voters in 2006.
If this Administration had any integrity, they would be embarassed; but, hey, this is the gang that can't shoot straight!
Obama says cutting spending would dishonor America. What??? Is Obama competing with the village idiot (Biden) to see who can say the most outrageous stuff?
Of course, god forbid, we may not be able to fund likes of EPA, FCC, NLRB, Dept. of Education, etal. to continue their fine efforts to undermine America!
Obama Admin Awards $17 Million Grant To Lay “Foundational Work” For American Carbon Credit Market…
Who says cap and trade is dead? When has congressional inaction ever stopped this rogue administration, and what does the U.S. Constitution matter anyhow?
Just to put your minds at ease that the madness is not solely attributable to our continent, in Australia they are considering awarding carbon credits to people who kill camels -- you heard it right, carbon credits for dead camels because of the methane they produce! It is equivalent of the 2009 epa proposed cow and pig 'fart tax' in this country.
Better watch those beans....
Somehow, I missed this next one...
Last week-end, Obama proclaimed June as LGBT pride month and Richmond Fed promptly obliged by flying the multi-colored LGBT flad alongside the old glory. Sadly amusing...
On Tuesday, Obama urged EU members to prevent a disastrous default by Greece (and it goes without saying - Spain and Portugal in due course) and pledged U.S. financial support as well.
I wonder if the EU will be there to bail us out when we go under?!
And finally (but not for long).....
MSM continues to spin the latest jobless claims as "unexpectedly rising". Didn't Einstein say that insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results? ...And doesn't that apply to the MSM? If the latest jobless claims are just the repetition of what has been happening for the past two plus years, how is that still "unexpected"?
