514.) President Obama has once again spoken up about the protests in Wisconsin, one of his comments was “I don’t think it does anybody any good when public employees are denigrated or vilified, or their rights infringed upon.” So its not okay to vilifiy public workers, so is it okay to vilifiy private workers? There may be a lot of people taking cheep shots at the Union Workers striking right now, but it is the Union itself that is vilifying public workers. Look at the protests, what is going on over there. Protesters refusing to listen to police when asked to leave the state house, signs saying F Scot Walker, they are actually giving classes on how to be more comforatble in handcuffs when they get arrested. While these are non-violent protests, they are not painting themselves as innocent school children. What I find the most interesting is when President Obama says that no one wins when these public workers rights are infringed upon. I imagen that he is refering to the issue of collective bargining. In this case a practice where the labor unions bargin with state officals with someone elses money. A great quote comes to mind, “All Government employees should realize that the process of collective bargaining, as usually understood, cannot be transplanted into the public service, It has its distinct and insurmountable limitations when applied to public personnel management. The very nature and purposes of Government make it impossible for administrative officials to represent fully or to bind the employer in mutual discussions with Government employee organizations” Quote that right wing radical FDR. Even FDR a radical progressive, much like President Obama, understood that the government could not afford to have collective bargining with labor unions. Part of this might be because FDR was not as dependent upon union dollars to get reelected. It is interesting to note that President Obama says that collective bargining is a right, yet federal employees are not allowed to collectivly bargin.
515.) President Obama said in his inaurgeration that now the earth was going to start to heal. He has dedicated himself to fighting the dangers of global warming. He anounced plans for a cap in trade system that would cause our energy rates to necessarily sky rocket. He championed the idea of bankrupting the coal industry. He put a moretorum on drilling in the gulf (Against, a court order) which has help tot lead to the sky rocketing gas prices. We as a nation have all had to make sacrifices to fight the dangers of the discredited theory of man made global warming. Our President is leading the way on how to live responsibly in these new green times, and he should truely be commended for it. Rather than taking time and wasting energy on finding a new personal trainer who lives in Washington D.C., President Obama has realized that it would be far more enviromentally friendly to fly his personal trainer from Chicago to Washington DC at least once a week. Wait… that doesn’t make sense at all. While I commend the first family for leading the way on thining down the American belt line, it brings my blood to a boil when I think about this story. President Obama has been on the attack against anyone who doesn’t believe in his green movement, while we are facing an increase hit to the wallet caused by his policies, this man flies someone to D.C. to work out? Are you telling me that there are no personal trainers in Washington? The man preaches do as I say not as I do. He only wants the green economy so long as it doesn’t effect him at all.
516.) A low level Obama Administration offical, Secreatary of State Hillary Clinton, made a very interesting statment recently. “In fact viewership of Al-Jazzeera is going up in the United States because it is real news. You may not agree with it but you feel like you’re getting real news around the clock instead of a million commercials and, you know, arguments between talking heads and the kind of stuff that we do on our news that is not providing information to us. Let alone forigeners.” So, the Obama administration started by going after Fox News, now they are going after all news. Apparently it is the responsibility of the government, the executive branch in particular, to explain to us how a forgien system is better than our own. So Breit Bear having a pannel that includes people from both sides of an issue such as Charles Krauthamer and Juan Williams is not informative. Bill O’Reilly having people like Allen Colms and Dick Morse on to discuss issues is not informative. But Al-Jazziera having full length videos of Osma Bin Laden calling for death to all Americans is? Seccretary Clinton in this same speech blamed cable out lets for America’s bad image abroad, I think Al-Jazziera playing images of Osama Bin Laden, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad calling America the great satan might have more to do with the image than cable tv. I just cannot beleive that Hillary Clinton said that Al-Jazziera is real news, when anyone who sees it can instantly tell the anti-american message. The anti-American bias became so deep that award winning reporter David Marash gave up his job there. He is definiatly not a memeber fo the 6% of journalist that are conservative either. Yet more sickening statments from the Obama Administration I wish I could say that I was suprised.
517.) President Obama slow to react, has finally started making statments dealing with the situation in Lybia. President Obama had this to say to Gaddafi loyalist, “I want to send a clear message to those who are around Colonel Gaddafi. Tt is their choice to make, how they opperate moving forward, and they will be held accountable for whatever violence continues to take place there.” So President Obama is sending aclear message that people are going to be held accountable. What in his history as President gives him any creditablity in this area? He did a great job dealing with Iran and their nuclear ambition… no actually he did a bad job with that because if I remember correctly the Iranians laughed in our face. I bet those Lybians are shaking in their boots. He might levy sanctions against them.
