American Citizenship Is An Honor,The Super Bowl 4 Women, Why Does The Media Dislike Trump?, Waldorf Putzes, Why No Real Energy Policy?, Pathetic Rules of Engagement, Black Chamber of Commerce CEO Blasts Obama

A source at the Episcopal Diocese gave this reason why former NJ Gov. Jim McGreevey was denied the priesthood: "It was not for being gay, but for being a jackass."
  • I hope this birth certificate issue has now been put to rest. However, I will make one last statement on it (I hope). Don't you believe it's an honor to have an American citizenship? And if one believes that, why did it take so long for Pres. Obama to show it?
  • John Farmer of the Newark Star Ledger made an interesting case for Trump being a Democrat mole. I don't think so, but it's an interesting theory. In short, he believes the--you know what (I won't break my promise. Shoot, I just made it a few minutes ago)--made a lot of Republicans look silly about the entire you-know-what issue.
  • At breakfast this morning, all of the waitresses were talking about the wedding. I was reading a newspaper that had about 6 pages all devoted to the wedding. I've been going to this diner for a long time now, and they all know I just leave the paper when I'm done reading it. As I was at the register paying my bill, I watched as every waitress attacked the paper like a group of white-tipped sharks in a frenzy over chum. That scene proved a theory I have: Royal Weddings to women are like Super Bowls to us guys.
  • I have another theory about why the media dislikes Trump so much (at least in the last several months). It's because he brings up issues they should be raising. And I'm not referring to the birth certificate issue either. I'm referring to economic and fiscal issues.
  • And I've finally figured out why I believe the administration has not focused on the economy as much as it should have---because their policies have left the economy in shambles. Those economic indicators that came out last week were pathetic and the administration and Dems know it. For example, wages have shrunk to a historic low, GDP was anemic and those applying for unemployment jumped again.
  • Speaking of shrinking wages, the CEO of Wal-Mart said Americans are running out of money. How does he know? Wal-Mart, like many other large companies, tracks everything going on in their stores including shopping and spending habits. For example, if you buy shampoo and you then go to the pharmacy area, they track that including the merchandise. Wal-Mart noticed an interesting phenomena occurring recently. People were hanging around the store from 11pm until midnight and not purchasing anything. Why? Because many were waiting for the social security checks to be deposited in their accounts or their debit cards to be recharged.
  • Shoppers in NYC are finding out that the price of common purchases has increased by 14% over last year.
  • If this story is true, the Walforf-Astoria hotel must be run by a bunch of putzes. The NY Post today reported a Mohamed Kotbi, a banquet manager at the hotel, said he was forced to wear fake name tags like "Edgar."  According to Mohamed, the management told him two days after the 9/11 attacks, "It's better to be Edgar than Mohamed today." He's now suing the hotel for religious and racial discrimination. I hope he cleans their clock. No employer, perhaps with the exception of intelligence agencies, has the right to force anyone not to use their real name.
  • Some people are scratching their heads and wondering why the administration is so unsure of what to do about these rising fuel prices. Folks, they want the price of fuel to rise.  As Victor Davis Hanson points out so well today in the NY Post, Ken Salazar, the current secretary of the Interior, as a senator in 2008, refused to vote for any offshore drilling. Steven Chu, current Energy secretary, said before he became secretary, "Somehow we have to figure out how to boost the price of gasoline to the levels of Europe." That shouldn't surprise anyone. He's a global warming cultist. And in 2008, Obama said regarding rising fuel prices, "But we could save all of the oil that they're talking about getting off drilling, if everybody was just inflating their tires and getting regular tune ups. You could actually save just as much." As Hanson write, "Note again the fantasy."
  • In case you missed the story a few days ago, an Afghan pilot killed 9 of our soldiers. This makes 39 of our troops murdered by these infiltrating thugs. But there's more to that story. Do you know the rules-of-engagement in Afghanistan and Iraq prohibit many of our troops carrying "loaded" weapons in some areas. In other words, there are restrictions on carrying loaded weapons in a clear combat zone.  That's insane. Police officers here carry loaded weapons most of the time including a chambered round unless restricted in some areas, ie hospitals, schools, casinos, etc. And, as I understand it, many those local laws do not always apply to federal agents.
  • Harry Alford, CEO of the Black Chamber of Commerce and 2008 Obama supporter, blasted Pres. Obama yesterday and said his policies are "Marxist" and "fanatical." He said he and the Chamber were pressured by the White House to "dance to his {Obama's} music and have blind allegiance to his crazy programs and agenda, which are totally anti-business..." {Real Clear Politics}
  • Pat Buchanan embarrassed Chris Mathews on MSNBC this week.  When Mathews said he didn't have to show any transcripts to MSNBC when he was hired, Buchanan replied, "Well, that's apparent." Touche!
