You all must have heard about this outrageous study. Liberals are defending it. Conservatives are railing against it. But nobody is asking the real question: Why in the heck would it cost over 900K to ask just 1065 gay men about their penis size and it’s social ramifications?
It amazes me every time Obama speaks- He tries to make everybody happy by agreeing with both sides. Then disagreeing, but not making it clear what he disagrees with. In other words, he is trying to be all things to all people. It’s pure politics- He leaves it open to interpretation on purpose, so people can see what they want to see. Well, a lot of people fell for that during his campaign, but now it has become a joke- Only, it’s not that funny.
With all the blatant bias in the news these days, there is still something at the core of being a journalist- a good one that is. You can still be biased, everyone will be- we can’t help it, it’s who we are. But in order to survive in the so-called new media, you have to be a lot more than just a pencil-pusher. You have to be a platform strategist, marketer, community builder, data miner, complete storyteller and entrepreneur.
Indiana Congressman Mike Pence is quickly becoming a popular figure in Conservative circles. He delivered a powerful speech on the Hillsdale College campus on September 20, 2010, where he called on President Obama to adhere to the Constitution. And he reminded Mr. Obama that his role is very limited by our founding documents and we the people.
First we frown- tsk, tsk. Then we pounce- Top Liberal websites- what a bunch of phony-baloney schmoozers. OK, I’ll give them their due, after all, all of these Liberal websites rank higher than mine. But hey, I got the truth on my side- Conservatism, patriotic Americanism, Constitutional Biblism. (I just made that word up.)
There’s only so much you can do in a day (or, in a life for that matter). But, when I look at the list of the top 100 Conservative websites, I wish I knew about them all. To be honest, I’ve only visited about twenty of them. But now that I have the list I’ll be back for more. Take a look, it’s a name-droppers paradise, a virtual list of who’s who in Conservative politics.
It really gives me great pain to say “our Muslim enemies”. But as painful as it is, it’s the truth. It’s factually incorrect to say (as Mr. Obama says) that a few extremists have perverted a great religion.
The fact is, they are commanded to kill Christians and Jews in their holy book, dozens of times. I wish I was wrong. But it appears to me that if all Muslims were to take their Quran seriously they would all be “extremists”.
The shadowy al-Adel, alias Muhammad al-Makkawi, alias Ibrahim al-Madani, alias Saif al-Adel, alias “Sword of the Just”, is the new al-Qaeda chief of international operations, according to BIn Laden. That, reported by Praveen Swami, Diplomatic Editor of The Telegraph in the UK. US and Pakistani sources say al-Adel is running several operations intended to persway Western officials that the war on Terror is unwinnable, and his strategy is to stage multiple, small terror attacks using resources of allies and affiliates.
At first glance you’d think it was outrageous that, while the Tribune is in bankruptcy since 2008, it still wants to pay its executives and managers $40 million in bonuses. But after a closer look, I get upset at the writers in the media who portray the story in that Marxist tone- and they don’t even ask the right questions. The untold fact is, those exec’s earned that money by increasing the Trib’s cash flow from 492 million in 2009 to 685 million in 2010. They made the company an extra (almost) 200 million, so why shouldn’t they get a little cut? The other elephant in the room is- how much do they actually owe their creditors?
Yes, you heard it straight- there is a Holy War. We didn’t start it, but at least we acknowledge it. I think it’s a sad state when people can’t say the truth. It’s a darn shame too, because this truth needs telling! We can sit around and act like it’s not a war, but that gives the advantage to our enemies. You can say you are not in this war, but someone sees you as an enemy. So, what are you going to do about it?
