Your "Weak" In Review

Updated on January 28, 2012

What's Next Bugs Bunny?

What a difference a week makes! But not really. The weak minded Lame Stream Media did its usual yawn of a job covering nothing of any particular importance so I had to look elsewhere for the details for “the rest of the story…” I found some nuggets along the way.

The "Do Nothing" Party At Work Last Week

Weinergate was finally over. Whiny Weiner finally came out of his hiding place to announce, not humbly this time, that he was resigning his seat and hanging his wiener up, as it had been on public view long enough. Interesting that a public official who disgraced himself, his family and constituents and the US House of Representatives by blatantly lying to all of them will garner about a million dollars in retirement benefits in the future. Isn’t our political system marvelous? Good riddance Whiny and take take your wiener with you. It got tiresome hearing about the narcissist’s schlong.

Killer Headline Huh?

Debbie (Wasserman Schultz) Downer got put on the spot and I’m hearing that Obama isn’t too pleased with her admitting that the “Do Nothing” Party owns the present economy. Well DUH Debbie! She wants us to all be in awe of the “recovery” that Obama has engineered. If there has been any recovery it has been so weak that very few people not living in Debbie’s “World of Ivory Towers” can see it. With unemployment up, commodities prices up, gas prices making the average American skittish, manufacturing numbers down and food prices going through the roof I reckon "recovery" is taking on a new meaning. Can't someone gag this woman? No forget that! She's the best secret weapon we conservative types have.

I bet she is thrilled! Sends a tingle up Chris Matthews' leg this one does!

Pelosi saw the recovery the rest us are pining for though. You haven’t heard about that? Seems that San Fran Nan’s personal wealth increased by a whooping 62% in the year 2010. But all those poor people she is so worried about grew poorer. There is justice in the nation, huh Nancy? When I read that I grabbed my Merriam-Webster and looked up the word hypocrite. Her picture was right there. Jeez, I wonder when the mice out that way ate last? You can catch up on that tidbit at the link below.

As I patrolled the news, I found a nugget about “why” the people in her district keep returning her to do more damage. This is in the “Did Ya Know?” category. Did you know that the great city of San Francisco has an Animal Control and Welfare Commission? Not an animal shelter but an actual commission. The mice must find comfort in that. But not the goldfish! “What you talkin’ about FP?” flashed through your mind I’m sure. They are proposing to ban the sale of goldfish out there in ultra-liberalville. The rationale here is that they are seeking to put the “impulse buying” of animals in the time out corner. Goldfish seem to be their top priority target and what is really nuts is that they reached that conclusion after conducting a study that lasted a year. If you live in San Fran you better stock up on breeding stock goldfish while you can. Duck and cover time Mr. and Mrs. Goldfish!

I Can't Bear To Watch Some Of This Nonsense!

Then Obama himself made the news. He loves the limelight you see. He created the ATM Boogie Man to try to rationalize continuing unemployment. He also added the Kiosk Boogie Man as ATM’s faithful sidekick. This was another immediate clue that Obama couldn’t run a lemonade stand much less our nation and its complex economy. His teleprompter must have been having brain cramps that day. Or else he was speaking unscripted which I find to be more than likely to be the case. So according to Obama the development of efficiencies in the market place accounts for his spending about a trillion dollars of our tax dollars on “shovel ready” projects that produced no jobs because there isn’t really such a thing. Obama seems quite adept at creating SCAPEGOATS. He has a corner on the market at this time, but what about JOBS Obama? I’ll leave that right there so you can think about it.

He Does Get A Bit Confused!

Then low and behold up Obama pops again on the serious subject of job creation at a meeting of the great "Jobs Creation Commission" he had the wisdom of creating. He was even smart enough to appoint Jeffery Immelt, the CEO of General Electric to chair that body. GE has caused more jobs to “off shore” than Carter has little liver pills so… But he and Jeffie yucked it up together when asked a serious question. You can see it here in the video. I didn’t find his response the least bit amusing..

I Know What End Of The Shovel Is Which Too

The real yawner this week was the Republican Presidential Debate in New Hampshire. Why in the world they would agree to let CNN moderate this event is lost on me. Wasn’t the Cartoon Channel available? Remember the “boxers or briefs” with Bill Clinton? This thing made that look like child’s play. John King, the CNN moderator, was as focused as Obi Wan Kenobi with a laser weapon folks. He zeroed right in on the important issues, little things like Coke or Pepsi, whether the Ipod or Blackberry was the communicator of choice or what about choosing between American Idol or Dancing With The Stars. Issues of substance you understand.

Next debate why don’t we allow the National Enquirer to moderate? Now really Lame Stream Media, if we wanted top see another dog and pony show, we could go to see the Barnum and Bailey circus. That would have been much more entertaining. But debates aren’t supposed to be about entertainment but candidates and the issues facing this nation - serious issues.

CNN Reports. You Decide!

Then the arrogance of Obama was put on display again Friday when he basically told Congress to shove a stick in its eye concerning his non-compliance with the War Powers Act. He knows best. He knows the US Constitution because he was a part time teacher of constitutional law at the University of Chicago. A lawsuit has been filed by a bi-partisan group of 10 Congressional wizards against Obama. A law suit? Impeachment proceedings should be immediately commenced against the I’ll Ignore The Law-in-Chief. I wrote an article about his Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD) this past week. Check it out if you haven’t had the opportunity. He’s text book material and this further confirms that.

His Arrogance Knows No Bounds!

I could go on but this is Father’s Day and we Dads in life need a rest. I’m beginning to long for the days past when George W. Bush was President. His administration was rather boring compared to the clowns Obama has imported to run the show.

HAPPY FATHERS DAY to the Fathers of the nation. To you too Founding Fathers. I know you're rolling over in your graves, but take a break today.

      Not to mention the Oval Office. Obama should recuse himself from the amnesty debate due to conflict of interest.

      Stu - I reckon we could add Obama's shovel ready projects and put the unemployed back to work - leaning on shovels.

      Whoops! I think illegal aliens have the corner on that market.

      The opportunities here are endless:

      - Get rid of phones and put the Pony Express back to work (lots of jobs for both riders and horses).

      - What do we need over the counter medicines for? We could generate more jobs for doctors and nurses without them.

      - Legal settlements could be outlawed. Every dispute should be litigated until the judge makes a decision. More work for lawyers and judges.

      - Who needs automated ticketing for air flights? Let's hire all those ticket agents back.

      - Snowplows? Get rid of them! The loss of driver jobs would be far outweighed by the number of shovelers we could hire.

      Keep adding to the list. We could have everyone employed in no time. Per capita GNP might fall to something like Burma has, but that's another problem for another day. We'll at least achieve Obama's dream - we'll all have the inalienable equal right to have absolutely nothing.

      What an imaginative, but realistic review of the 'weak' that was, Frog. Keep it up. Speaking of technology taking jobs away, I expect Obummy to call for the removal of self-service elevators any day now. Look at all the elevator operators who have been jobless since they were invented.

      Marcoujor - Thanks. Father's Day is a day of sadness for me on the one hand for very personal reasons and a day of joy on the other. My son will return from training in Brazil this coming Thursday and we will talk. My personal reason is contained in "Writing That Blank Check" if you care to read that article I wrote a while back.

      Oh, Stu - I am SO disappointed with you! (Although you're definitely still my friend!)

      When you asked if any of Weiner's pension was from a private employer rather than the State or Federal government - I was stricken with remorse. I have avoided ANY mention of this weasel including checking his resume. I really don't care - but I DO! I don't think he's had a "real job" in his life.

      Just like Nancy who was left a fortune, literally, and the O man who, I don't think, has a pension coming from his "Community Activist" charade, probably has a million a year from the University of Chicago. Even THEN he didn't work - they made a no-show job for him to give him some sort of credential.

      Now Michelle, who, allegedly gave UP her Law License (NO ONE EVER DOES THAT!)has a no-show job at a Chicago firm from which, I believe, she gets $500,000 per year.

      His biggest income source are the books he (didn't) wrote that people actually BUY! What's wrong with this picture? I can't wait for the plethora of books he has ghost written after he's thrown out of office on his skinny butt. (Michelle's butt has eaten VERY well and it's not coming from her stupid garden.) That's OUR house and I don't appreciate her messing it up. (Dwight Eisenhower did have the putting green put in, but that was to cover the express entrance to the Greenbrier.)

      I'm also VERY p.o.'d that this creep has been in re-election mode for months. Including Africa? Come on... how stupid does he think we are? Even his "base" is calling quits on him 'cause he hasn't done a dam thing he promised them.

      Gee - I don't think he's done a dam thing for me and I didn't even vote for the jerk.

      Stu, Surely not one-million per year?!! Then again, good question. I should be beyond surprise or shock by now. Thanks for taking over due diligence in salutes today. I'm startin' to think that maybe "lifting a finger" is too much energy spent on the sorry lot in Washington.

      National Inquirer seems to have done a better job than the MSM on reporting.As far as shovel ready jobs that seemed like a dubious promotion to begin with. Although it could have provided work for unskilled immigrants. The ATM thing I have not figured out.Will ATM's get fired and collect unemployment benefits no?

      To bad we couldn't get O-man to take a deal like that.

      Stu From VT 7 years ago

      Hi Amy,

      I'll fill in for you and give'em the one finger salute now. You can take over tomorrow.

      BTW, regarding the pension, is that:

      (1) $1 million per year, or

      (2) $1 million in total

      Is the pension totally from the federal government, or is part of it from prior private sector work?


    • Amy Becherer profile image

      I was not surprised when I saw Anthony Weiner finally pack it in and resign. And then the media reported they will now subsist only on his wife's salary followed by the little detail of his million dollar pension. I'd like to see how full of himself he'd remain on $288/week unemployment and losing his health benefits? While the Prez and family extended their Christmas vacation in Hawaii, I was struggling without my earned unemployment for 4-weeks until the business in D.C. resumed. So, it was bitter irony I dined on while I listened to the First Family's Christmas dinner menu. Since it's Father's Day, I'll skip and then resume my middle finger salute to D.C. tomorrow.

      News flash; Obama's newest "shovel ready" recovery project is to hire SEIU members to bury all those ATM Machines preferably in Wassermann Schultz’s district while Naughty Nancy can hire her own Shovel Brigade to bury her new found loot! Either way think of all the new minimum wage jobs they will create!

      Hi Frog,

      I'm getting an uncontrollable impulse to hoard goldfish. I better go to the ATM to get some cash.

      A dodecahedron is a three dimensional surface with twelve flat surfaces (in the case where each surface is a pentagon with equal length sides, the dodecahedron is called a "regular dodecahedron," the typical "causal" definition of dodecahedron). Roman dodecahedrons were regular dodecahedrons, but had holes cut in the faces. Quite a few have been found in the ruins of ancient Rome, but nobody knows what their purpose was.

      Of course the real news this week was that Roman Dodecahedrons continue to remain a mystery as nobody can figure out why they were made or what they were used for. Personally, I think somebody way back when was warning the future about O-man.
