Dumbo, a one trick donkey, from William A. Jacobson, Legal Insurrection :
Whenever Obama’s in political trouble, he gives a speech.
Whenever he’s in a lot of trouble, he gives a major speech.
When he’s on the verge of a political meltdown, he gives a historic speech.
Has Obama ever given a memorable speech? I think not. For a guy who gives a lot s speeches, he just is not very good at it.
Guitar Wars, Gibson strikes back, from Tennessian :
Eleven days ago, Gibson Guitar CEO Henry Juszkiewicz was getting ready for work when he got a phone call at home from his assistant, whose voice sounded panicky.
Half a dozen armed federal agents with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service were searching the Gibson executive suite. Two of the company’s South Nashville guitar factories also had just been raided, along with one in Memphis.
In recent days, Gibson’s CEO has gone on a counterattack, telling various talk radio and TV news programs that the raids are an “outrageous abuse of federal power” that have unfairly singled out his company, perhaps for political reasons.
“There’s no doubt we’re being persecuted,” Juszkiewicz said. “But while I was sitting in my conference room, while agents blocked the door to my office, I decided two things. One, we were going to try and fight this in court. Secondly, we were going to give this issue visibility.”
Is Dumbo turning us into a nation of Howard Beal’s?
Da Mayor’s supporter guns down eight. Has to be. Only the mayor’s campaign contributors are allowed to have guns in Bloomberg’s gun-free paradise from Reuters :
NEW YORK â€” A male teen allegedly gunned down eight people at a house party in New York City early on Sunday morning, evaded police capture and remains at large, according to New York City police officials.
Dasilva Oneil, 17, opened fire before roughly 3:40 a.m. in the Bronx, a Manhattan borough, hospitalizing eight, including an 11-year-old male and four teens.
I say send New York’s mayor, Michael Bloomberg, to jail for willfully aiding and abetting crime. What say you?
