For one old dude this, Kissinger (84) guy still gets it.

In this interview with Spiegel online, he provides great insight as to why European leaders love George Bush. Basically, they can use him as a punching bag to mask their own inferior policies yet know that the US will always do the heavy lifting. Pretty much the thinking of liberals around the world; let the rich pay for everything and then bitch because you have nothing.

I think it is obvious that the United States cannot permanently do all the fighting for Western interests by itself. So, two conclusions are possible: Either there are no Western interests in the region and we don't fight. Or there are vital Western interests in the region and we have to fight. That means we need more German and NATO troops (more...) in Afghanistan. What I am not comfortable with is that some NATO members send troops primarily for non-combat missions. That cannot be a healthy situation in the long term.

Cracking down on illegals

Norbert Nadel wants the state to pass a law making it illegal to hire an illegal.

A Hamilton County judge is asking Ohio lawmakers to adopt a law that punishes those who knowingly hire illegal immigrants.

"This cracks down on the employers," Judge Norbert Nadel said Wednesday. "If there's no well for them to drink out of, they won't come."

Nadel has nothing against immigrants, but thinks they should be here legally.

Hey Norbert, what exactly do you do when an illegal passes through your courtroom? Do you call INS? There's no mention in the article of the criminal being passed to INS once his sentence is completed.

I was in a muni court a few years ago on a traffic ticket. I was struck by the number of immigrants in court for DUI's, drving without insurance, license, etc.

What do you think the judge did in each of those cases? If you answered nothing, you get a gold star.

So let me make sure I have this right. We, as employers, have to do law enforcements job. The legal system does nothing when they have an illegal and yet we're punished when we don't even have the resources available to check to see if the applicant's documentation is fraudulent.

Shock jocks are shocking, imagine that.

I haven't commented on the talk show host/ blabber mouth McCain fiasco because that's what these guys want; say something shocking and get on the news. What great publicity.

Now that the news has passed like a bad meal through my intestines, let me make these points.

1) Why do news media types acknowledge these things when they occur. The talk show host involved got tons of mileage out of this and the national news media play right along like some kind of lap dog. These guys are like kids, ignore them when they pull attention getters.

By the way, who provided the national media with all the tapes? His radio station.

2) Since when did someone's name become an off limits attack. His middle name is Hussein. Deal with it. If he can't handle the truth then he doesn't have thick enough skin to be president.

3) Remember when John F. Kerry kept using that "F" initial in his name to create some kind of bull crap imagery of another Massachusetts JFK. Well, using your name as imagery is part of the game, positive and negative. By the way, I'm pretty sure the F stands for Francois.

4) McCain, how is it he found the fortitude to call out a shock jock but didn't call out the woman who called The Billary a bitch?

5) Once again, the national media is handling their candidate with kid gloves. As a result, he'll get pounded with a "swift boat" moment because the campaign will be ill prepared to deal with the fallout.

6) The national media has done a horrible job of vetting it's candidate. I guess it's hard to vet ole Che while you're screaming like a little girl at a Beattle's concert.

Free foreclosure lawyers

Dear Mr Newman;

I just read this article on your efforts to force the state to pay for attorney fees to individuals going through foreclosure proceedings.

I'm so glad your taking this on.

Let me tell you a little about my story. My wife and I wanted a nice house to move into. After all, it didn't seem fair that our neighbors were moving out into nice homes in the suburbs when they don't work nearly as hard as we do.

So we went house shopping and found a wonderful 4 bedroom 2 & 1/2 bath 3500 square foot house out in West Chester for $360,000. Even though there's only two of us we thought we could use the extra space and besides our whole goal was to get in at $360 and sell in a couple of years for $450,000 and use those profits to move into a $500,000 house over by the TPC.

Unfortunately, we ran into a problem. My wife works for a local credit union earning $40,000/year and I'm a self employed landscaper pulling in around $40,000 per year. Our real estate agent told us that we were going to have a problem getting approved for a mortgage because our incomes weren't sufficient for the mortgage amount. In addition, since we had no down payment, we were going to have the additional expense of PMI insurance.

After talking to some buddies in a bar, someone told me about these "stated income" loans. Where you simply tell the mortgage broker how much you make and they'll accept that as your income number.

So I filled out an application telling the broker I made $100,000 along with my wife's $40,000 and, bang, we had our home.

In order to make the payment fit our limited budget, we did a variable rate loan which got the payment down to $4,076 a month.

Now, with interest rate hikes and a recently passed school levy, our new mortgage payment is 5,102 a month. No one told us about this and we feel that were duped into buying much more house than we could afford.

So we look forward to your free legal service. I think it's totally appropriate for the state to pay for those fees when it's their fault we bought too much house. Never mind, people filing bankruptcy receive no free legal services because they were dumb and irresponsible.

So please call me when the state approves your proposal, we can use your services.

Another "progressive" city in ruins

You can't find a republican in the city of Milwaukee with a pack of blood hounds (Kerry over Bush 72-27); the city has been ruled by democrats for decades.

Well how have the "progressives" handled the city to date....


Today, Milwaukee mirrors the grim statistics on deepening poverty and racial inequality outlined in a new report that updates the Kerner Commission's findings, said a researcher who worked on the anniversary report.

"Unfortunately, it strikes me that Milwaukee continues to be a leader in so many unfortunate measures, such as unemployment, mortgage rates, incarceration and segregation," said Gregory D. Squires, chairman of the sociology department at George Washington University in Washington, D.C.

Middle-income Milwaukee neighborhoods declined in number, he said, while wealthy and poor neighborhoods increased. In 1970, the city had 11 census tracts in which 40% or more of the residents were poor, but by 2000, that had jumped to 43 census tracts.

According to U.S. Census figures, Milwaukee's poverty rate now ranks in the top 10 cities, and 1 out of 3 children in Milwaukee Public Schools is living in poverty.

So if you are trying to fix the problems in the city of Milwaukee what do you do?

If you're a "progressive" you come up with one of those new and original ideas to fix the problem; like a tax increase to fund more social programs.

All you "progressives" have been bitching about the Iraq War now for three years. When are you going to start addressing your war on poverty that we've spent trillions on over the past forty years and guess what? We still have poverty!

Why isn't this story getting traction?

One of Che Obama's economic advisers is admitting to talking to the Canadian embassy to allay fears that Obamamania will alter NAFTA.

Yet Che has flat out denied that it happened.

The NRO has all kinds of follow up on the kerfuffle.

He's a liberal

If you haven't seen this yet.... you need to.

Che Obama hates America

This election season we're watching the birth of America's Next Favorite Narcissists, Obamamania.

NRO with a nugget on Michelle.

Just like The Billary, it appears that Michelle has more stones than said husband.

Hey Michelle, just how evil is capitalism?

Without capitalism, guys like Gates, Buffett, et al, wouldn't have the money to actually solve problems. They'd be as impotent as the government.

It's pretty clear we've got a whole new set of the Clinton's, without all the ho's.

Who will this guy vote for? #4

Meet Wayne Lede, Sergeant in the US Army,

What's our Sergeant doing in the news.

After completing two tours in Iraq, Sgt. Wayne Leyde won $1 million from a scratch-and-win lotto ticket on Tuesday.

Now that he's won, Leyde, a 26-year-old member of the Washington National Guard, says he's still going to volunteer to go back to Iraq for a third tour and won't spend any of the money in the meantime.

The Question? Who does he vote for this fall?

Obamamania or McCain

Feels cold to me

Here's another article acknowledging the recent global cooling episode.

Some scientists contend the cooling is the result of reduced solar activity — which they say is a larger driver of climate change than man-made greenhouse gases.


Who's been saying that since he's had his blog going......

Thank you very much.

CTV on Obama, Clinton and NAFTA

Obamamania & NAFTA

So you are a hard working Teamster and you've been pissed at The Billary for years for their passage of NAFTA.

Now you've got Obamamania to rally behind becuase he's going to do away with NAFTA.

Not so fast.

Apparently, Obamamania has had communications with Canadian officials assuring them that they will not alter NAFTA if he's elected.

Obamamania has denied the rumor but a Canadian TV station stands by it's story.

NRO has more.

Friday night's ineffective police action

The will be a DUI check point in Fairfield on Friday night.

As soon as I have a exact time and place, I'll forward it on.

Get the haz mat team

It's risky to be green.

You go out of your way to buy those curly light bulbs and BAM, you break one.

Uh Oh, being green you know that these bulbs are loaded with a deadly toxin... mercury.

What do you do?

Run out and buy a haz mat suit for you and your family to make sure no one is contaminated with the mercury. But what do you do with the waste?

You need to call a haz mat team since they have the proper disposal procedures for mercury contamination.

Or, if your like me, you just sweep it up and toss it in the garbage.

Where "progressives" attend college

For some time now, I've been beating on the ruins "progressive" government has turned our cities and school districts into. But what about colleges run by "progressives" and who's alumni are "progressive" such as Antioch College, in Yellow Springs Ohio.


Antioch College is scheduled to close this summer for the 2008-09 academic year after trustees confimed a decision made last year.

The board of the Yellow Springs school said at a meeting in Los Angeles that it opted to suspend the college effective June 30 and close it for the 2008-09 academic year after it ran out of time to reach an agreement on the transfer of the college to an independent group called the Antioch College Continuation Corp. The board hopes to reopen for the 2009-10 academic year.

The board had decided in November to reverse a decision to close the financially troubled college after alumni raised millions of dollars and reached an agreement in principle with the board to halt the decision. In a statement Friday, the board said several large donors and members of the alumni board disputed the agreements and insisted on more authority for the proposed separate board of trustees and ultimately a full separation.

The decision will affect about 200 students and more than 120 faculty and staff, the university said.

I guess they can't even run a "progressive" university either. Gee, I wonder how this school stacks up against Hillsdale college who takes no federal or state funding for any of it's curriculum.

An addendum.... Interested participant yet another case of failed "progressive" leadership in higher education.

Global Warming challenge update

The updated score to my global warming challenge.

Warm - 70 Cold - 62

The warm score has been aided by four record warm days (20 points). Kick those out and we've had many more days colder than average.

Who would this guy vote for? #3

Bobby Cutts, a true class individual. Here's a list of his accomplishments.

A jury began deliberating Tuesday whether to recommend the death sentence for a former police officer convicted of killing his girlfriend and their unborn daughter.

A sobbing Bobby Cutts Jr. appealed to the jury Monday to spare his life. It was the same jury that convicted Cutts earlier this month.

He said he took responsibility for the deaths of Jessie Davis, 26, and the couple's unborn daughter last June and that he didn't mean to kill them.

Two weeks ago, Cutts sobbed on the witness stand as he testified that he had accidentally killed Davis with an elbow blow to the throat during a disagreement and dumped her body at a park in a panic.

So the question

Does Bobby vote for the "progressive" change promised by Obamamania or the status quo offered By McCain?

Who will I vote for?

Despite being a recovering liberal, I'm still a registered democrat.

Since the primary season is over for the GOP, I'm thinking what democrat will I vote for in the primary?

I hated The Billary so much, during their reign in the 90's I voted in the primary just to cast a vote for Lyndon LaRouche.

So can I vote for Obamamania?

It's a true dilemma.

Vote for Obamamania and we can finally put a stake in the heart of The Billary.

Vote for The Billary and maybe we'll get a real fun DNC convention this summer.

It's like deciding between a Precinct steak and Montgomery Inn Ribs.

I'd love to see them both.

More on "progress"

A reader commented on one of my posts yesterday
Gordon, I wish you'd stop this "progressive" crap. They're left-wing liberal weenies dang it. (LWLW)

I think a little history is in order

The whole deal with writing "progress" in quotes has been in response to a comment a reader posted a few of months ago.

"'conservatives' are for status quo while "progressives" are for progress. I can live with that definition."

As a result of the comment, I've been waiting like the second coming for someone to tell me what "progress" progressive government has brought to our society.

Since democrats run all large cities and school systems in the US, I figure that's a perfect place to analyze the results of "progressive" governance.

Well, I'm still waiting for some "progressive" to tell me how dilapidated slums in cities are "progressive" or how 30% graduation rates in inner city schools is "progress".

So until someone can tell me how "progressives" have actually brought "progress" to anything, I will continue with the quotations.

For sale - One ferris wheel, a couple of llamas, etc.


Michael Jackson's Neverland Ranch is set be sold at auction on March 19.

Jackson received word Monday from Financial Title Company, the trustee, that unless he pays off $24,525,906.61 by that date, a public auction will go forward in Santa Barbara, Calif., in front of the county courthouse.

It's not just the house either. When Neverland is auctioned, it will include everything: all personal property inside, all fixtures and appliances, furniture, and "all merry go round type devices," any rides, games. The auction literally includes every single thing that is or isn't nailed down.

After they sell off all his crap, maybe someone will find his nose.

Man, January was cold

I thought January was cold but that was because my gas bills for the month were astronomical. But, apparently, it was cold.

Global warming sceptics are pointing to recent record cold temperatures in parts of North America and Asia and the return of Arctic Sea ice to suggest fears about climate change may be overblown.

According to the US National Climatic Data Center (NCDC), the average temperature of the global land surface in January 2008 was below the 20th century mean (-0.02°F/-0.01°C) for the first time since 1982.

Temperatures were also colder than average across large swathes of central Asia, the Middle East, the western US, western Alaska and southeastern China.
The NCDC reported that the cold conditions were associated with "the largest January snow cover extent on record for the Eurasian continent and for the Northern Hemisphere".

In some parts of China and central Asia, snow fell for the first time in living memory, the NCDC noted.

"For the contiguous United States, the average temperature was 30.5°F (-0.83°C) for January, which was 0.3°F (0.2°C) below the 20th century mean and the 49th coolest January on record, based on preliminary data".


Who would this guy vote for? #2

If you're one of those "progressive" types, you probably don't believe in the death penalty.

One of the reasons? You probably believe that once we incarcerate an inmate for life he's no longer a threat to society.

What about Jame Were?

He's in prison awaiting his death sentence for the murder of Robert Vallandingham. He's no threat to society now that's he's in prison is he?

Except for the fact that his murder conviction occurred while he was in prison.

James Were, 51, was convicted in the April 1993 murder and kidnapping of corrections officer Robert Vallandingham. Were was serving time at Southern Ohio Correctional Institution in Lucasville on assault and robbery charges when a riot broke out, killing Vallandingham and nine inmates.

In court papers, Were's attorneys argue the trial judge erred by disregarding evidence that the defendant is mentally retarded.

Were's first murder conviction was overturned by the Supreme Court in 2002 because the Hamilton County Common Pleas Court failed to hold a hearing on his mental competency.

During a second trial, Were was found guilty and sentenced to death for Vallandingham's murder.

Naaah, he's no threat to society. Well unless you don't consider Robert Vallandingham and the nine inmates members of it.

On a second note.

Would Were push the button for Obamamania or McCain? Why?

Who would this guy vote for?

From now until the election, I intend to highlight various citizens in the news and raise the question..... Who would he or she vote for? Let's assume it's a choice between Obamamania & McCain

Today's citizen

Joseph Kaminsky. Why is he in the news?


A Miami Township man is accused of having sex with a 14-year-old girl who is now pregnant.

Joseph Kaminsky, 22, was arrested Monday and charged with two counts of unlawful sexual conduct with a minor.

Kaminsky, his attorney said today in court, admitted having consensual sex with the girl twice in January.

Kaminsky, who lives with his mother, has previous felony convictions for tampering with evidence, possesion of cocaine and breaking and entering, and is under indictment now on a felony theft charge.

Hamilton County Municipal Court Judge Russell Mock set Kaminsky’s bond at $200,000

So the question...Come November (assuming he's not in prison) does Kaminsky vote for Obamamania or McCain? Why?

Blue State exodus II

Tom @ Bizzyblog has a good post on state and local tax burdens.

Above is a graph of each state's tax burden.


Look at the top ten states v. the bottom ten states and tell me

Which group of states are growing and which are declining?
Which group is run primarily by "progressives" and which are run by conservatives?

See a correlation? Is it possible that the tax burdens are why these state are declining in the first place?

I'm still waiting on the "progressive" out there who can explain to me how "progressive" governance is sooooo much better than conservative governance.

Give me a city, state, school district, SPCA, or anything else run by democrats, and I'll show you a falling down dump.

The journalists annoited sons

Someone's halo has to slip and when it does, the fall will be jarring and the crash unusually harsh. The national media have two anointed sons in Barack Obama and John McCain, each the repository of extraordinary favor and each now poised to become the presidential candidate who may well be chosen to be an object of unrelenting scorn.

That is how things tend to play out in modern presidential campaigns, from at least the dawn of the stage-managed Reagan era if not to the beginnings of John F. Kennedy's Camelot. Who will be the next Al Gore, ridiculed and reviled for his intellectualism, his mannerisms, the color of his suits and the kiss bestowed upon his wife? Who is the next George W. Bush, the candidate of seemingly limited potential who somehow became imbued with what seemed like limitless appeal?


Clinton in Lancaster

The Billary took it's road show to my home town (Lancaster, Ohio) yesterday.

No word yet on the number of sexual assaults in the city.

Out of curiosity, I thought sexual predators weren't allowed in high school gyms.

The impact of "progressive" leadership

How do you know when a pack of democrats are running a school system.

When there's a whopping 32% graduation rate at the high school.


Just 31.9 percent of Detroit students graduate in four years, according to the first major study in Michigan conducted using a method now mandated by the federal government.

The study, by the Education Policy Center at Michigan State University, looked at how many ninth-graders in Detroit and the state as a whole left high school with diplomas after four years. It portends what may happen in August, when Michigan releases the graduation rate for the class of 2007, which will be calculated for the first time using the same formula used by MSU researchers.

Detroit Public Schools officials would not comment on the study, which has not yet been published, but School Board President Carla Scott said she doesn't believe the results, which echo the findings of an Education Week study released in June. That study found fewer than a quarter of ninth-graders who entered Detroit Public Schools in 1999 graduated four years later.

You may know the city of Detroit as a "progressive" city; Kerry 72% - Bush 28%. So who do the progressives blame for the rot they call a school system? After all, you can't find a republican in that city with a search warrant.

Is there a "progressive" out there who can tell me of a city or school system run by republicans this dysfunctional?


This is Che Obama's America.


It’s a country where the vast majority live in poverty, while a tiny, corrupt elite live in luxury. It’s a place where, 14 years after South Africa abolished apartheid, a form of it still operates. And it’s a country where you can be threatened with prison not just for criticising the country’s leadership, but also for querying a medical bill.

Welcome to Cuba, the ‘socialist’ paradise built by that great egalitarian Fidel Castro, who after 49 years at the helm has finally decided to hand over power — in the manner of a true democrat — to his brother Raúl.

My wife and I, as unreconstructed paleo-lefties who support Clause Four, free school meals and NHS dental provision, had long wanted to visit Castro’s Cuba. All the people whose views we respect had said that the Caribbean island was a progressive model whose policies on education and healthcare ought to be copied throughout the world. We went there last April desperately wanting to like the place — after all, if George W. Bush and other right-wing nasties hated Cuba so much, then the country must be on the right tracks.

But we returned home terribly disillusioned. Neither of us had been to a country which was so utterly decrepit.

So let me make sure I've got this right. "Progressives" think we should change things in our country so that it looks more like Cuba.

I guess Cuba's a "progressive" country if you think driving Vega's and Pinto's are progressive cars.


Need a new accountant?

It's never a good thing when your accountant gets busted for filing false tax returns.

So if Kay Rogers, Butler County Auditor, is your accountant, let me get you a card.

Apparently, Kay's going to be spending some time in the can after pleading guilty to various felonies.

Pot Kettle Black Award

Breaking a streak of 10 consecutive awards to The Billary, this week's award goes to Peggy Cioffi.

Her offense
The leader of a Treasure Coast-wide agency established to provide classes for people convicted of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs was suspended from her job Wednesday in the wake of her DUI arrest Monday.

The Comprehensive Offender Rehabilitation and Education program will continue to operate normally despite the arrest and suspension of its executive director, Margot "Peggy" Cioffi, 59, of Palm City, program officials said.

Democratic Debate, Clinton vs Obama

I'm still trying to see the humor. It looks like any other CNN debate to me.


Dykstra sues CPA

Lenny Dykstra is suing the CPA who prepared his tax return.

The fee? $111,097.

Hey Lenny, I'll do your return for half that. Let me send you a card.

You might want to talk to Wesley Snipes accountant. You may have to pay for some legal fees but you won't have to pay taxes.

"Progressives" hate our country.

Bill Kristol on Obamamania not wearing the American flag lapel pin


But Obama chose to present his flag-pin removal as a principled gesture. “You know, the truth is that right after 9/11, I had a pin. Shortly after 9/11, particularly because as we’re talking about the Iraq war, that became a substitute for I think true patriotism, which is speaking out on issues that are of importance to our national security, I decided I won’t wear that pin on my chest.”

Leave aside the claim that “speaking out on issues” constitutes true patriotism. What’s striking is that Obama couldn’t resist a grandiose explanation. Obama’s unnecessary and imprudent statement impugns the sincerity or intelligence of those vulgar sorts who still choose to wear a flag pin. But moral vanity prevailed. He wanted to explain that he was too good — too patriotic! — to wear a flag pin on his chest.

I never thought I would see the narcissism of The Billary topped but that was before Obamamania hit the stage.


Obamamania needs more than speech?

Excerpt from this article

When John McCain alludes to Barack Obama’s “eloquent but empty” rhetoric he is wisely acknowledging what’s abundantly clear to everyone else, i.e., that this oratorical phenom is the most dynamic speaker to hit the public domain since Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was gunned down nearly 40 years ago.

But he is also wise to imply there might be a vacuum beneath that veneer.

No one, not even the most virulent rednecks, would have suggested King’s elocution was barren, no matter how much they reviled him. Indeed, it was his effectiveness in articulating and advancing his beliefs that most enraged them.

The point of the article? Obamamania needs more than flowery rhetoric to win the presidency.

My question? Why?

Apparently, all those really smart "progressives" are willing to vote for a guy who's eloquent but offers nothing substantive in terms policy initiatives. Who are the rest of us to argue?

I was so lovin' the thought of The Billary beat down in November but I think it's going to be so wonderful watching all these Kool Aid drinkers switch to cyanide come autumn.

Obamamania in Cincinnati tomorrow

The Beatles, aka Obamamania, will be in town tomorrow at UC.

The over/under for fainting coeds has been set at 3.

I just hope he doesn't get shot by a pack of thugs down there on campus.

Sound like a monster in law?

Listen to this one.

Doesn't she sound like a pissed off monster in law? Wow, I'm surprised she's never caught on.

By the way, we only have another week or so before the Billary leaves and you can take your valuables out of hiding.

Nader's running

Ralph Nader is running for president.

Hey, Let's get Mike Bloomberg running so we can choose between four liberals.

Republican coalition

Fred Barnes on the Republican coalition


For decades, Democrats have been the coalition party. They brought together groups of people who differed on ideology and in social status. Republicans, at least since 1980, have been the consensus party. They rallied behind the standard positions of conservatism, differing only (and then mildly) on social issues.

In 2008, the parties have reversed roles. You merely have to watch a Democratic presidential debate to realize Democrats are now the consensus party. On everything that matters--Iraq, taxes, immigration, health care, the war on terrorism--Democrats basically agree. Their debates sound like an echo chamber.

In contrast, Republicans have become a party of squabbling ideological groups that John McCain must bring together if he is to win the presidency this fall. With McCain as their nominee--one with whom many conservatives have disagreements-- Republicans have become the coalition party.

Oddly enough, this role reversal may help Republicans retain the White House in a year that, by most political yardsticks, favors Democrats. With McCain, Republicans have a presidential candidate less vulnerable to Democratic attacks than the Democratic nominee, especially if it's Barack Obama, is to Republican criticism.


Where's Planned Parenthood now?

An artist killed herself after aborting her twins when she was eight weeks pregnant, leaving a note saying: "I should never have had an abortion. I see now I would have been a good mum."

Emma Beck was found hanging at her home in Helston, Cornwall, on Feb 1 2007. She was declared dead early the following day - her 31st birthday.

Her suicide note read: "I told everyone I didn't want to do it, even at the hospital. I was frightened, now it is too late. I died when my babies died. I want to be with my babies: they need me, no-one else does."

A long time ago I got into a heated debate on the abortion issue with a friend and this was how the dialog went.

GG So if you believe it's a woman's body to do with what she wants, you must believe in legalizing prostitution.

GG's friend No. I think there's been several studies that would show that there are long term effects on a woman's emotional health from that activity.

GG So if there were a studies that would show a long term emotional health consequence of having an abortion, you would be against that as well.

GG's friend Well, I don't know......

I know of six women who have had abortions. If you were to ask any of them if they would do it again, they would tell you no.

Now I also know of a woman who has had multiple abortions. Ask her if she would do it again, she would obviously tell you yes. That is.... if she were sober enough to utter the words.

Planned Parenthood is all gung ho about making sure women don't have unwanted children but they couldn't care less about the after effects of the procedure. Want to know why we never see studies on the emotional effects of having an abortion? Because everyone already knows the answer.

The Billary screwing a little guy

I will say this about democrats. They can understand how the little guy gets crewed all the time.


Because they're the guys doing the screwing.


It was just $2,492.63, a pittance, really, alongside million-dollar television buys and direct mail drops.

But with Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton’s bid for the Democratic presidential nomination enduring a rough patch, Peter Semetis, the owner of a deli and catering business in Lower Manhattan, had been following the news and growing increasingly worried that he was not going to be paid for the assorted breakfast trays, coffee, tea and orange juice he had provided the campaign for an event in mid-December.

“I’m afraid of her dropping out of the campaign and me becoming a casualty,” Mr. Semetis said.

So on Thursday, he went to small claims court and filed suit. Mr. Semetis, 53, said he was hardly a political pundit but like others across the country, he had become caught up in the election in the last year and was able to offer some analysis. “There is potential for her to lose Texas,” he said — an assessment not at odds with the polls — “which would pretty much force her to quit.”

Somehow I bet if it was a union head, he would have been paid.

Thank Reader Mark for the tip.
