How Are Those Green Jobs Doing?

Yeah, just as expected.

After a year of crippling delays, President Barack Obama's $5 billion program to install weather-tight windows and doors has retrofitted a fraction of homes and created far fewer construction jobs than expected.

In Indiana, state-trained workers flubbed insulation jobs. In Alaska, Wyoming and the District of Columbia, the program has yet to produce a single job or retrofit one home. And in California, a state with nearly 37 million residents, the program at last count had created 84 jobs.

Buy a Gun Day Can't Come Soon Enough

Update:   I just read the whole thing, as the say, and it appears to be more limited than I originally saw.  As most laws, it says one thing in the heading and then contradicts (further limits) itself below.  There is a yearly cost laid out and the restriction of health/natural disaster application is more or less specified.  I still think its unnecessary and overreaching and shouldn't be in there but I doubt Obama could actually use it for anything too nefarious.

Oh yeah, this bill was all about Healthcare, not the terrifying expansion of government power.

(1) IN GENERAL.–here shall be in the Service a commissioned Regular Corps and a Ready Reserve Corps for service in time of national emergency.
(2) REQUIREMENT.–All commissioned officers shall be citizens of the United States and shall be appointed without regard to the civil-service laws and compensated without regard to the Classification Act 2 of 1923, as amended.
(3) APPOINTMENT.–Commissioned officers of the Ready Reserve Corps shall be appointed by the President and commissioned officers of the Regular Corps shall be appointed by the President with the advice and consent of the Senate.
(4) ACTIVE DUTY.–Commissioned officers of the Ready Reserve Corps shall at all times be subject to call to active duty by the Surgeon General, including active duty for the purpose of training.


Remember, you're not paranoid if they really are out to get you.

How much are a bunch of dead babies worth?

So you remember how Stupak folded on his "no paying for abortions" requirement?
Well, apparently a bunch of dead babies are worth $726,409 for three, little-used airports in his district.
Not only is he a whore, he's a cheap whore.
Just business as usual with a Chicago-machine politician as POTUS.
Yay!

I couldn't figure out where this belongs. It started in Funniest End of Civilization Ever, went to Notes on the Revolution, then to Liberal Fail and now Obama's Fault. I think that's right.

It's One Thing To Defend Or Spin A Shady Political Deal

But at least have the decency not to embarrass yourself like this.

There is something wrong with the world

When the French are getting cool Steampunk movies and we are getting Alice in Wonderland. (Would someone please put Tim Burton in a burlap sack and beat some talent into him).

Behold The Chicago Way, Massa Edition

Whoa. The Massa resignation has the markings of a coordinated hit by Rahm and Axelrod.

“Mine is now the deciding vote on the health care bill, and this administration and this House leadership have said, 'they will stop at nothing to pass this health care bill, and now they’ve gotten rid of me and it will pass.’ You connect the dots,” Massa said Several times during the broadcast Massa raised the prospect of rescinding his resignation if national news media picked up on his story of being railroaded out of office by Democratic leaders.

And therein lies the problem. How interested will the MSM be to cover this story, knowing that an uproar from the great unwashed could lead to the guy coming back? Hell, the Mediacrats are as interested in helping Teh Won secure a victory as the Party  Rank And File, and mentioning this dirty detail would get inthe way of Obamacare's passage. As Ace has always stated, you don't need to spin that which you don't cover.

Between offering a judgeship to the brother of a wavering Democrat, and forcing out of office a "No" Vote, thus lowering the margin the bill needs for passage (now, all the Democrats need are 216 votes, not the more dicey 217), this is how the Chicago Way will get what they want. Just be on the lookout for military bases, contract awards/revocations, mysterious arrests in nightclubs, surprise tax audits, etc.

So that's what a spit take is.

Instructions for using this post.
1. Swallow your mouthful of coffee.
2. Hit "more".
3.Laugh.
4.Read rest of post.

Pic nearly shamelessly stolen from the Mega Independent. A totally non-biased, fact-based Intertube News Page that's totally middle of the road and totally journalism-based in the style of the NY Times and the Washington Post (Hosannas).
They have such helpful stories as this one about tea and tea bags

"It's a disgusting drink," remarked one of the scientists, "Anyone who would even associate themselves with tea after this study is obviously just a pathetic loser with no life."

Wow, Paul Krugman couldn't have said it better. I assume we know he's a "scientist" because he had a white lab coat on.

Classless and Petty

This vid is good for a couple reasons.
First, we see Obama acting in his normal, classless and petty manner.
Second, we see the CNN tool admitting they spend their time just gazing at Captain Wonderful in their "iso" camera shot.
CNN has vid of Capt. Wonderful listening attentively to Republicans last week.
