This is the tweet that startled me this morning
Now I see pride and joy in furthering the GOP agenda!
“I fought for that package because, while we are recovering, we plainly still have a lot of work to do.”
Well, you fought and you won! yeay, you!
Do you ever have the feeling that all your enemies are gahering to conspire in one room?
It was this tweet from The Telegraph that gave me the Morning Sneeze
I don’t know if their predictions are right or wrong but there was one thing in the article that struck me
The company’s commercial ambitions are also open to question – particularly as Goldman Sachs is expected to raise a further $1.5 billion for Facebook from smaller investors, a move that is likely to interest the US Securities and Exchange Commission. When a US company has more than 500 shareholders, it must file financial returns, which removes one of the advantages of being private and makes a public listing more likely.
So, who else is missing? Bloomberg? Bill Gates? Billionaires of the world, unite!
There was just one bright spot in the story
In a few years’ time, Goldman’s funding could be seen as Facebook’s high-water mark, just as Rupert Murdoch’s takeover of MySpace, thought to be a game-changing development at the time, actually heralded its descent into terminal uncoolness.
But ultimately, it’s a story of elephants running and trampling the ground under them.
Proving she understands where the problem is (just like the time she declared there was no such thing as sexism), Nancy Pelosi is on a quest to rebrand the Ds. This headline gave me the Morning Sneeze
Geez, I thought Tim Kaine already did that by removing the superfluous “democratic” and coming with the exciting “circle Ds”.
Or rather Nancy did that when she took W’s impeachment off the table.
Or when she joined the hooligans who were dismissing women and working class voters in 2008.
But this is a rebranding akin to W’s finding names for the war in Iraq. Him went to Madison Avenue advertisers, and it was the Rice A Roni marketer that gave us “Operation Iraqi Freedom”. It’s good to know Nancy, the other San Francisco treat, has the same political acumen as W!
We find out that Nancy
So, if not Jaws, how about the Extra Terrestrials? (ET on the logo)
While it’s interesting that she is so fond of the corporate culture, I think even Wall Street could teach her that ultimately, you are what you do. No amount of rebranding will ever makes BP look not criminal or Enron honest.
And not even Spielberg can make the the dmocrats look “stronger”.
Not after messing up Social Security.
or here is a good one
Since today is very likely we get a fake net neutrality (to go along with th fake health insurance, fake Wall Street regulation and the fake stimulus), this is a good video explaining things – and clearing propaganda from the truth
I love that the VIPs in the cartoon are riding on Segways!
I was happy about the repeal of DADT. Much as I don’t really want gay people – or straight ones to get killed in wars – discrimination is discrimination.
Then the political posturing hit me over the head
I saw this right as DADT repeal happened, but it just hit me
I remember at the time someone objected that the gay wallets don’t flutter, but make a manly sound.
While I celebrate the civil rights moment, I can’t stop being awed by the cynicism of the Journolist brigade coupled with the chutzpa of those dragged kicking and screaming to finally get on with the repeal.
As for Os, after years of telling the gays that there are more important things to accomplish than their selfish agenda, they are finally able to tell the difference between Obama and McCain!
that DADT was repealed.
And in the meanwhile as a result
Some top universities moved quickly Saturday to respond to the vote repealing the ban on gays in the military, and those who don’t restore their ROTC programs in the wake of the vote are likely to face immediate pressure on the issue.
Which send me to the wisdom of this tweet
And for those ragging on Clinton for instituting DADT: before that gays were not allowed to serve at all. This was as far as Clinton could push things in the right direction then.
Key words – to distinguish from Obama’s tax deal: “right direction”
