Oops! In Major Turnaround Politico Confirms Possible Hoffman Surge to Lead in NY-23

Again, News people are asses now. You do not have to know facts any more. And, as a matter of fact, after the interview on CNN, with Jessie Jackson, they have taken “news” to a “new” level. Teleprompter; mode. I guess, since, our President relies on it so much, so should everyone else.

From Newsbusters;

Note to Politico: If you base a story on an outdated Daily Kos poll you could end up with egg on your face. This is pretty much what has happened in the past three days.

On Saturday your humble correspondent cited a Politico story of the day before by Josh Kraushaar in which he reported on Doug Hoffman continuing to lag behind in third place in the NY 23rd CD race:

Pelosi ‘Public Option’ Needs New Name

This is from NewsMax;

Now, a little opining from me before you read this. I want all of our Uncooperative Readers, Listeners, and Citizens to have their Uncooperative Detectors in place. Notice that, when a politician, or a “party” for that matter, does not get his/her or their way, they change the Language they are using to try to “sell” it to us, the Peeps.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi says a government-sponsored public option for health care lives. But it may be going by a different name.
In an appearance at a Florida senior center Monday, the Democratic leader referred to the so-called public option as “the consumer option.” Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, a Florida Democrat, appeared by Pelosi’s side and used the term “competitive option.”

Yes, Us Dumb Ass, Conservative, Clear thinking, Beer Drinking, Family Loving,God fearing,Constitutionalists, need to be told how to think. No, this is not a commie bill, no this is a “consumer Bull”, no wait, sorry, “consumer bill”. Can We Stop Consuming yet? Can We?

How the Media is attacking and is being attacked

I am going to compile stories from NewsBusters.org about the recent attacks to and from the media. I know, my readers, again, I have not been blogging for a while; I’m trying to get us set up here on the mountain for the winter. Ya know hauling food, ect… Sorry. I am in Chipmunk/Squirrel mode. He, He, He. Soooo let’s begin.

From Newsbusters;

NBC’s Brian Williams allocated a few seconds Thursday night to how a new Pew Research Center for the People & the Press survey discovered the percent of Americans who, in his words, “believe there’s solid evidence of global warming…has dropped off significantly” while “the number of people who say they don’t believe in climate change at all has doubled in that time.” (If it’s a scientific issue, what does “belief” have to do with it?)

But instead of crediting Americans for recognizing the media-fueled case global warming is a threat has been undermined by reality since global temperatures have not risen an iota since 1998, Williams attributed the change to how “in a down economy, people are less sensitive to the environment.”

Serious Dumb Ass commentator. Let’ move on to the next one.

Just when you thought the White House couldn’t possibly do anything to make their bizarre feud with the Fox News Channel an even larger spectacle – the administration manages to take it to another level. On the Oct. 22 broadcast of Fox News Channel’s “Special Report,” host Bret Baier revealed a White House pool announcement was offering Kenneth Feinberg, the “Special Master for Compensation,” better known as the White House “pay czar” for interviews – all except for one network – Fox News.

Serious Dumb Ass White House. And then there is this.

Is there no depth MSNBC’s Chris Matthews won’t sink to?
Judging from a truly disgraceful comment he made on Thursday’s “Hardball,” the answer has got to be a resounding “NO!
MATTHEWS: That’s not fair. The group in this country that most resembles the Taliban, ironically, is the religious right.

I show you, my readers, then let you decide.:)

Readers’ Ideas on Obama’s Nobel $ Award

I am always hesitant to take any article from “the old grey lady”, but this is kinda fun; In a sick political way. The fact that “our President”, or as I like to call him, “El Presidente”, wait, no, “Comrade Obama”, no, wait, wait, “The Great Socialist”, no, “the Great Community Organizer in charge,” no, no, no, “The Anointed One”, Oh what the helllll! He just has toooo many names so, here’s the article.

From The New York Times;

Of course, Saturday’s post wasn’t intended as a snarky directive to the White House. The president and his aides surely have their own ideas as to how to invest the prize money in various causes. This was merely an invitation to find out what issues/causes/foundations come to your minds when, and if, you pause to ponder donating such a sizable sum to something in sore need of a financial windfall.

And the suggestions do run the gamut, from financing more cancer research, to quite a few goals for improving education among children in the United States, to promoting international peace or reducing the nuclear weapons arsenal or tackling AIDS around the world. (And those simply contending that the funds could be used to pay down the national debt.)

To that aim, here reprinted are some of your recommendations, (a few excerpted, not in full):

Pressing Domestic Issues

Donate all of it towards cancer research. Imagine a world without cancer. It would be a little more peaceful than it is now, don’t you think? — Carl Billadeau

I hope he gives it to “community trusts” in some of the cities/areas hurt most by the recession. (cleveland, detroit for example have had such trusts for a long long time) It could really make a difference and by giving it to a community trust; the leaders of those communities can decide which organizations would benefit most from grants. — Josie

There is a lot more suggestions, you’ll just have to follow the link and read them all. But in the mean time. I would like to have input from my Uncooperative Readers and Bloggers about this subject. Should He have gotten the Prize? And, as a conservative, what would you do with the money? And as a socialist, commie, what do you all think He should do with the money? Thoughts, comments?

At least 119 dead in South Pacific tsunami

,Ok, I’m going to tell you this part of the story, so you can get, “the rest of the story”. Shall we begin;

From USA Today:

HONOLULU — The South Pacific earthquake hit at 6:48 a.m. Tuesday, followed 10 minutes later by the first of four killer waves that hit American Samoa, Samoa and Tonga.

They were not huge by Hawaii big-wave standards —, up to 20 feet according to Togiola Tulafono, the governor of American Samoa, who was in Honolulu Tuesday for a conference.

But in a low-lying, island nation of about 65,000 people, the kinetic energy of the earthquake-born waves was powerful enough to knock out a major bridge, destroy homes and major roads and send cars crashing into one another, Tulafono said.
