The Disgrace Continues - Obama Appoints AIG Crony

In what can only be described as a slap in the face to every American who suffered from the over $9 Trillion dollar loss in homes values due to the financial chicanery of Bankster’s and Friends, Barac O’bama has appointed AIG “consultant” and crony James Cole to the office of Deputy Attorney General.

China and Iran will sink our aircraft carriers

It has long been suggested by opponents of the aircraft carrier that they are sinkable. The myth of the unsinkable aircraft carrier comes from the luck we had in the Pacific in WWII. Unlike the Japanese we lost no aircraft carriers after the Yorktown. It does not take a fancy new missle to knock one out. It only takes a torpedo or 2 from a sub that was hiding on the bottom long enough to get through the destroyer screen. That could probably be done by a non-nuke sub.

Forever Stamps

Your caller was wrong about a replacement of the forever stamps. The Post Office announced this month that all stamps are now forever stamps and 1 and 2 cent stamps will no longer be issued. Note that even some of the recent holiday stamps were also forever stamps.

The Gift of Ass Fault

"Open a new 2011 Cadillac, and give yourself the Gift of Ass Fault," said the commercial announcement on my cable-free television set of unknown manufacture.

People who are writing television script these days don't realize there are those in their audience who hear spoken words entirely in their literal sense.

Bill Clinton: the problem and the solution

If I hear one more person talk about generic job creation, in the abstract, my head's gonna' explode.

Reagan may have launched the process of uploading the wealth and devastating the middle class, but Clinton's second stage booster rockets put those machinations into orbit. He swung the barn doors open wide, allowing US industry to bolt, to seek greener pastures abroad. Leave it to the republicans to fool or coerce a moderate democrat to sign off on their malicious dirty work.

Does Trump "Tweet" When His Staff Says No?

Thom plus logo Lev Parnas tells the story of how Donald Trump fired ambassador Marie Yovanovitch at least "four or five times," and that they were afraid that he would "fire her with a tweet." This is not the first time we have heard from White House insiders that the president often gives irrational or stupid orders that his staff then ignores.
