  • DNC Convention:What Can Speakers Say Regarding Economic Recovery?It's Going To Laughable.

    04/15/2012 6:25:25 PM PDT · by Reality_News · 25 replies
    Have any of you given thought regarding what the likes of Wasserman,Congresswomen Waters and Joe Biden may say at the Convention? Then again, what can they say? Wouldn't you think that any "Grand Speech" would start off with "When Obama Took Office In 2009"? then go into the statistics of that time. They can't brag about/compare any economic statistic. Unemployment,Deficit&Debt are so much worse! That pretty much leaves them with nothing formittable to say about Obama. And they claim "Obama Stopped The Bleeding"? Yah! Try and spin that one off. !! The 2012 DNC Convention will be more like the...

    Full Title: ‘He Enjoyed Booze, Guns, Cars, and Younger Women Until the Day He Died’: Unrepentant Obituary Deemed ‘Best Ever’ ------------------------------------------------------- Michael “Flathead” Blanchard’s obituary, published in the Denver Post on April 12, bears little resemblance to the standard “in memoriam.” Penned by Blanchard before his death, the obituary notes, among other things, that Blanchard was “weary of reading obituaries noting someone’s courageous battle with death.” Rather, he wanted it known that he “died as a result of being stubborn, refusing to follow doctor’s orders and raising hell for more than six decades.” “He enjoyed booze, guns, cars, and younger...

    By simple reporting and exposing their dismal numbers, Big Hollywood has completely obliterated the ongoing media myth and charade that "The Daily Show" and "The Colbert Report" represent some kind of populist phenomenon. The media elite love their fellow elites Colbert and Stewart and so the media elite create a phony reality that claims that both of these left-wing, speech policing, Obama Palace Guards are, you know, actually popular. When the truth is that they're regularly beaten by cartoons, reruns, and "Robot Chicken." Now, it appears as though the last refuge of "Daily Show" defenders have switched the argument to...

While symptoms can often be ameliorated by the raised eyebrows and amused snickers of nearby people, a lasting cure for Triskaidekaphobia remains elusive. Until there is a cure, we must not relent!

    We are trying to figure what's more impressive about Oscar the cat in this video. Is it his super intense game face, staring into the camera like boxers going nose to nose during the pre-fight instructions? Or is it his insane vertical and commando-style skills in opening the freezer? In either case, the cat's owners say they have a safety lock on the freezer to keep Oscar from helping himself to fish sticks. (That's the only part of the story we're skeptical about. We would've figured he was making the moves on the ice cream.)

    U.S. Treasury officials had just one day to review the Obama administration's $535 million loan to the now-bankrupt solar panel company Solyndra, according to a new audit from the Treasury's Inspector General. The report, published this week, found that the Treasury's review was "rushed" to accommodate a Department of Energy press release announcing the approval of the Obama administration's first clean energy loan. In its feedback to the DOE, the Treasury raised several concerns about the loan, including about the amount of equity in the project, and voiced a preference for a partial, rather than a whole, loan guarantee. Although...

    Sorry for the vanity but this was too funny not to post: If not Obama, Who! Seriously.? Even I'd be a little more worried if one of the younger generation republicans were running like Eric Cantor, or Paul Ryan because less is known about them. Everyone knows the more you know about a Republican the less attractive they become. But not one of the clowns running presently stands a chance once they get the nomination. Romneys worse of a debater than Sarah Palin. Obama's steering this country in the right direction and pretty comfortable with him driving. What the hell...

Among his many creative feats is a fairly unknown, fairly scandalous one: In 1939, when Geisel left Vanguard for Random House, he had one condition for his new publisher, Bennett Cerf—that he would let Geisel do an "adult" book first. The result was The Seven Lady Godivas: The True Facts Concerning History's Barest Family, which tells the story of nudist sisters who, after their father's death, pledge not to wed until each of them has "brought...
