++Vivian Schiller, CEO & President of NPR, has resigned after a taped conversation of NPR fund-raiser, Ron Schiller (no relation), called GOP and Tea Party members a bunch of gun-toting, white, racists. Finally the true progressive bias of NPR was exposed for what it really is. The firing of Juan Williams sparked much discussion about the left-wing operation. Now, if Congress has any courage, it will de-fund NPR and let it compete on an equal footing with other programs! But, don’t hold your breath!
++Hurray for Gov. Scott Walker and the Senate in Wisconsin. They found a way to get around the Democrats boycott of their duties. The fight is not over, but the Dems should have known that hiding like a bunch of children in day-care playground was not the solution to the budget woes of Wisconsin. The GOP took a page from the Pelosi Playbook….they found a way to get the job done! Well played!!! Hopefully Boehner was paying attention and will play some Pelosi hard-ball with the House.
++The number of jobless claims increased this week after the unemployment rate went down last month. Does anyone really trust the numbers that come from the government? Seem a little contradictory? Why not highlight the “under-employment” rate of 16%+. That is the real problem with the economy!
++Rep. Peter King (R-NY) has launched a committee hearing on the radicalization of Muslims in America amid much controversy and renewed uproar about profiling and homegrown terrorists. Is there a problem “discussing” threats to our national security? It is time we opened our eyes to this obvious threat….no little old ladies from Nebraska have blown up anything recently!!!
++Wow, more evidence that the economy is reeling! Seven (7) iconic movie posters sold for almost $2,000,000 on eBay! Three were thought to be the only remaining copy of “War of the Worlds”, ‘Forbidden Planet”, and “The Day The Earth Stood Still”….all ’50’s sci-fi classics! I wonder if the buyer was one of the new jobless claimants!
