America more economically unequal after 5+ years of Obama

المنتخب محمد مرسي بضوء اخضر من امريكا والغرب اطفال سيناء اصبحو هدفللجيش المصري الذي اطاح بارئيس  – Roughly translated: “Elect Mohamed Morsi green light from America and the West kids Sinai Asubho goal of the Egyptian army, which overthrew Baris

Malaysian government admits altering MH370 pilot transcript, hiding evidence and misleading the public in massive cover-up

Common Core Worksheet tells kids to Choose 2 to remove from the Constitution – That’s easy.  Remove the 18th and the 21st amendments and absolutely nothing would change.  The 18th brought about Prohibition of alcohol; the 21st, repealed the 18th.

The 17th Amendment, “Establishes the direct election of United States Senators by popular vote,” could also go by the wayside without any tears from this corner.  The 23rd, which gave the District of Columbia 3 electoral votes, would also be a prime candidate for elimination.  The 26th and 27th would also be no great loss.

So there’s six amendments which could disappear without anything changing for the worse–and maybe the better.

This is all likely to come as a shock to those who place their faith in the US constitution to protect their “rights.”  Basically,  nine unelected people in Washington DC decide what rights the American people deserve to have. Those who put their faith in the US constitution are doomed to be disappointed.

As a great many Americans are finding out to their great dismay.

Duck Dynasty: Phil Robertson and the Corporate Media

Duck Dynasty: The Media Controversy

Duck Dynasty: The Media Controversy

DUCK DYNASTY: REALLY, WHAT’S THIS ALL ABOUT?

Phil Robertson, one of the Duck guys from the relentlessly-promoted Duck Dynasty, has been kicked to the curb, purportedly over remarks he made in an interview conducted on his own time.

Now, the fight has escalated, with people who don’t know a duck call from a carburetor, encouraged to feel the outrage and join in the fun that can only be had by expressing that outrage in public.

But seriously: what is this all about?  Why has the Corporate Media chosen to shine it’s worldly spotlight of 24/7 coverage on this event?  There is always a reason.  What is that reason?  Is it because the media desperately wants the folks at home to have the truth?

Is it really about some guy in Louisiana who doesn’t think homosexuals are right with God?  Seriously, there’s a ten-ton truckload of those of a similar mind in Cajun country.

Maybe ten thousand truckloads.

Secret Life of Barack Hussein Obama: Three Months in Print

The Secret Life of Barack Hussein Obama is nearing its third month in print.

The Secret Life of Barack Hussein Obama was released on October 25, 2011 by Threshold Editions, a division of Simon & Schuster, and explores the many aspects of the President’s life that remain unreported–or under-reported–by the the American Corporate Media.

Written by Mondo Frazier, Secret Life of Barack Hussein Obama is packed full of facts that most likely won’t make the president’s next autobiography.

The book is available in both hardcover and e-book at hundreds of locations worldwide, including Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Books-a-Million, iTunes and better bookstores across the USA.

Rielle Hunter Image Rehab Tour: Almost 100% Negative Comments

Rielle Hunter’s Mistress Rehab Media Image Tour has stopped at GQ and will pull into Oprah’s in 4 more weeks. How’s John Edwards’ mistress doing with the fans? If the comments on articles about her are any guide: not so hot.

WHAT DID READERS THINK OF RIELLE HUNTER’S GQ INTERVIEW?
DID HUNTER CHANGE HER IMAGE?



2010 Rielle Hunter Mistress Rehab Media Tour Continues

Former mistress and current media manipulator, Rielle Hunter, has booked the second leg of her Image Rehab Tour on Oprah the first week of May. But how was her first stop received? What did readers think of her infamous 10-page GQ interview?

Did Rielle Hunter change any minds out there? We were curious, so we went looking.

But first, a bit of history, for those coming late to the story.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY’s Jeff Labrecque has the conventional wisdom on John Edwards’ mistress, Rielle Hunter’s Magical Mistress Make-Over Tour.

Now that Edwards’ political career is kaput, do we really need to grant Hunter a showcase for her version of the tawdry details?

Fair or not, is there anything Hunter can tell Oprah that will improve her public image? Do you even want to hear what she has to say? Will you watch?

That seems to the take from both the Left and Right. Hunter seems to be a lot like medicine: you can only take her in very small doses. The correct dosage for Rielle seems to be smaller than she’s willing to provide.

One can only image what Hunter would be doing today instead of doing Oprah had the media chose to cover the affair back when it was relevant in 2007-08.

Instead, a total black-out (with the exception of a few lines in the NY Post) of coverage imposed a news vacuum for 10 months--until Edwards gave the go-ahead for his buddies in the media to talk about it by "confessing" on ABC's Nightline on August 8, 2008.

If the story had been covered from the beginning, Edwards would have bowed out and the soap opera that ensued would not have happened: No Enquirer chasing Edwards around the Beverly Hilton, no tortured non-denial denials, no Nightline lies and drama.

Rielle Hunter would be at best Old News--or no news at all.

No doubt Hunter would be proposing some type of reality show which featured the appearance of her daughter, Frances Quinn. Quinn is the only thing that makes Hunter palatable in print or TV.

And she knows it.

Hence any media must make the trek to Charlotte, NC to interview her at her home--where conveniently, FQ also resides. Frances Q. becomes a topic of conversation during the interview--thus lifting the focus, if for only a few moments--from the frothy narcissism-cum-Eastern mystical cluelessness that makes up Hunter's persona.

If the EPA regulated auras, there'd be a TOXIC DO NOT ENTER sign nailed to Hunter's forehead.

But enough. What do readers think?


Q: HOW DO PEOPLE SEE RIELLE HUNTER?
Q: HOW DOES RIELLE HUNTER SEE HERSELF?
A: THEY'RE A UNIVERSE APART

Here's some comments from the GQ interview itself. These are representative. After combing through pages, no positive comments on Rielle Hunter were found.

Rielle Hunter seems to be the Richard Nixon of mistresses.

But that's not an exact parallel: Nixon had his foreign policy admirers.

On to the comments.

BTW, Zara, you mentioned a comparison to Camilla Parker Bowles and I must respectfully disagree. 1. Camilla kept her mouth shut. She never once gave a tell-all interview even after they married. 2. Unlike Johnny & Ms. New Age Hunter, I believe Charles and Camilla clearly loved each other and had a relationship that went far beyond sex. 3. Camilla actually had a means to support herself other than living off a man. (She was heiress to a property development fortune from a grandfather, but even before that, she actually WORKED.) 4. Lastly, Charles actually married Camilla whereas I think there is a better chance of Johnny Boy being elected to public office again than ever marrying this woman.

"You can't help you fall in love with? BULL. SHIP. Yes you can. You stay away, simple as that. Just because you don't want to and don't think its fair blah blah blah doesn't mean you CAN'T. This woman is like a deluded 15 year old trying to convince herself that it was something magical and special because she knows she did a despicable thing, but if she can convince herself (and everyone else) that it was LOVE and DESTINY and whatever other SPIRITUAL TRUTH crap she wants to spew, then it doesn't seem so bad. And if that crap was the FACTUAL TRUTH then would he have really denied it and denied her and lied and whatever else? And did the author really call her smart? Because how smart can she be if she sits there and acknowledges all his deliberate and elaborate and intentional lies, and then say she "knows" he would never lie to her? It kills me that these women get this attention. Clearly I am a fool for going to college and having a job instead of just making a career out of being a slut. BLAH."

Well, kids, we haven't heard the last of Rielle Hunter. CNN reported today that Oprah is going to interview her. While I wish Oprah would not have agreed to this since it is clear Hunter craves attention, I doubt this is going to be any softball interview. She had Andrew Young on a few months ago and did nothing to hide her disgust over John making that sex tape and lying repeatedly to Elizabeth. Oprah is a helluva lot smarter than Hunter, so it will be interesting to see this!

Rielle Hunter Comments: Mistress Image Rehab Tour Not Doing Well

“For what it’s worth, I wholeheartedly approve of this article. Tabloids have made Rielle Hunter out to be a jaundiced predator, but now I know better: she’s actually an honest, attractive, spiritual woman who’s not afraid to tell the truth. Also, the photos give her a millenial Princess Di aura. Congrats, G.Q.”
–ctb 16

“There is an awful lot of moralistic, holier than thou, rhetoric going on here. Yes, John definitely made many mistakes, the biggest that he should have divorced 1st but he dragged others along…not only his family but Rielle as well”

Rielle was not dragged into anything. Rielle is a happy participant who knew exactly what she was getting into when she cornered Edwards in front of the Regency hotel. Rielle is the reason that John Edwards may even go to jail. To call that a chance at happiness is ridiculous.
–Zara

“I just read this article in my GQ and if people didn’t already think Hunter was an idiot they probably do now! Just reading it I was thinking are you really that stupid and naive. She constantly says she was not a mistress, but only playing a role as one…what the hell does that mean? Women you are a mistress! She must be the queen of denial! She takes no responsibility for her actions. She says it wasn’t about sex…then what the hell was it? If he wouldn’t have been John Edwards she wouldn’t have looked twice at him…that is what is the sad part about this to me. What I don’t get is how a women can have such little self respect for herself? Does she not realize he has probably had tons of mistresses and told them all the same thing…like Tiger Woods was doing. She isn’t special…if she was special to Edwards he would have wanted her to keep the baby (which in the interview it didn’t sound like that was the case) and he would have already left his wife a long time ago and married her…he still hasn’t married her and he probably never will! Why would he when he can have his cake and eat it too! Hunter should read the new Jackie Collins best seller called “Poor Little Bitch Girl” she would relate very well with the character of Carolyn…”
–jdockery

The early returns are in and they don’t look good for Hunter being able to use Oprah as a vehicle for her rehabilitation. From Oprah Welcomes John Edwards Mistress at Gawker:

“The title should read “Oprah Welcomes John Edwards’ Mistress and Is Immediately Overcome by the Need to Shower with a Sandblaster.””
–TheSometimesWhy

I wonder if Oprah will let her get away with spewing that New Age b.s. She takes no responsibility for her actions. She helped to ruin several people’s lives including four children. Edwards is definitely a slimy asshole but she sees this as a love story and the cancer stricken wife is just a speed bump.
–HeyWhat


OPRAH WINFREY NABS EDWARDS MISTRESS FIRST TV INTERVIEW – ENQUIRER WORLD EXCLUSIVE! Oprah Winfrey has nabbed John Edwards’ mistress Rielle Hunter for her first TV interview!


“Fame whoring is a good color on you, Ms. Hunter.”
–Sophomoric

I don’t care if they roll footage of her saving puppies from a burning building while adopting orphans and bathing lepers, she’ll still be the cheap slut that stole cancer woman’s husband.
–doctorzizmore

“Wow, although I consider myself an Oprah fan, this is enough to make me reconsider. Especially is she treats this woman with any measure of politeness or sympatico. If she doesn’t rip ol’ Rielle a new one, I won’t know what to say about Oprah.”
–JudyPaceFace

“So Reille. Am I pronouncing that correctly? I am? I’m not? Whatever. Let me ask you this: Will you ever tell your bastard child about the dirty pregnant fuck vid you shot with his dad, while he was married to a cancer-stricken woman?”
–HughJackmanOfforCan

Whew!

So what does this all mean? That most people enjoy a train wreck? That only mean people comment on Internet stories? That Rielle Hunter has a very steep, maybe impossible, hill to climb?

Or maybe, just maybe, it’s a slow news day?

OR is it all of the above?

NOTE: Readers may think that we’re being too hard on Hunter. Maybe. Maybe not. Here’s an interesting experiment (for those with the time and inclination, admittedly a small audience): Google “Rielle Hunter” in Google News. Pick a random article or two and check out the comments. If you can find any positive ones, you’re doing better than us.

    As long as there are women out there like this one, there will be men willing to sleep with them and ruin lives. Its not just about the cheater (who is the most to blame because he/she is married) but its also about the so desperate partner who just has to have someone that they are willing to be with someone who is married to someone else. Its a two way street and both sides are to blame. I’m so ashamed of women who have to have a man so bad they are willing to hurt another woman in the process.

    According to Hunter,

    It’s all Elizabeth’s fault Hunter became Edwards’ mistress. Hunter tried to argue this in the GQ interview.
    It’s obvious Hunter doesn’t have a clue how idiotic and shopworn this particular argument is.

    Edwards should have run for Village Idiot.

5-Step Real Plan: ObamaCare More Like Prohibiton than Social Security

DefundObamaCare2

THE FIRST STEP TO REPEAL:
WIN the HOUSE, DEFUND OBAMACARE


OBAMACARE HAS MORE IN COMMON WITH PROHIBITON
THAN SOCIAL SECURITY and MEDICARE

A lively debate ensued yesterday on whether it’s possible/probable to repeal ObamaCare.

It most certainly is, and readers only have to look at the past to find where Americans repealed another highly-unpopular program that was rammed down their throats by those who thought that Government Knows Best: Prohibition.

The talk of repealing ObamaCare was everywhere in the blogosphere. A quick round-up:

* Michele Bachmann, Big Government: We Must Repeal this Bill!

* Bill Whittle, PajamasMedia: FREE WILL AND DESTINY

* Bill Kristol, Weekly Standard: Special Editorial: Repeal

* Jeffrey H. Anderson, The Corner: The Battle Is Lost, and the War Has Begun

* Ace, AofSHQ: We Can Repeal This

* Paul Hsieh, PajamasMedia: ObamaCare: The Coming Battles

Many commentators–some on the Left, some on the Right–insist that once a historic action (entitlement) is taken, it’s impossible to reverse. Which calls into question how we got rid of the whole repealing Prohibition thing.

Believe it or not, this is the proper comparison of ObamaCare: not Social Security, not Medicare. ObamaCare has more in common with Prohibition.

* Both ObamaCare and Prohibition are “noble experiments” which attempt to regulate personal human behavior by an unwieldy, gargantuan federal apparatus. In fact, Prohibition was known as the “Noble Experiment.”

* Both programs are highly-unpopular with a majority of the population.

* Both programs were promulgated by those who thought that government was smarter than ordinary Americans.

* Both programs are examples of the government’s “forcing you to do something you’d rather not do for your own good” philosophy.

It took a Constitutional amendment to make Prohibition the law of the land. While Nancy Pelosi might insist that the unprecedented government power grabs against its citizens are totally Constitutional (“Are you serious?”), we’ll see.
