ObamaCare: Maybe Unconstitutional & Can It Survive?; Inflation-What Stinking Inflation?; Global Weirding; Dumbass Statement of the Week By A First Class Dumbass

"With a name like Weiner, the immaturity level is already at a fourth-grade level. The joke's there already."--The Borowitz Report (And I say, "Thank you Lord!").

  • "Recession is Over News"-- first time jobless claims were up again last week. This marks 9 weeks in a row that first time filers were over 400,000 each week.
  • We're also being told that inflation is in check. Don't believe a word of it.  Yes, some components of the consumer price index have fallen such as the price of personal computers, household furnishings (considering the sad state of the housing market, this one should surprise no one) and clothing. But gasoline is up over 33%; food and beverages up over 3%; fuel oil exceeded 25%; meat, poultry and eggs up almost 8% and cereals and bakery products over 2%.
  • Little too early to tell yet, but reports suggest the judges reviewing ObamaCare right now might be leaning toward declaring the law unconstitutional. Why? Largely due to the mandate forcing Americans to have health care. This will continue to be a very interesting case to follow.
  • Sidebar on ObamaCare: If these judges knock down some parts of the law, it appears this law will have a hard time surviving. Considering the huge number of waivers given to date and the number of employers who plan on dropping their health care coverage, the law might end up in shambles.
  • "Never mind the debate over global warming, its possible causes and effects. We've got global weirding," climatologist Bill Patzert on the strange weather patterns lately.
  • Have you heard about the "Peace Angel" statue? Well, let me describe it for you. A recycling plant in New Jersey will make this statue out of melted down confiscated weapons. They believe or hope the statue would remind many people to stay away from weapons and inspire them to turn in their weapons. I don't know about anyone else, but I can clearly see thugs, Crips, Bloods and Narco gang members laughing their arses off right now (USA Today).
  • You might recall the story of an Israeli family that was butchered last March by two Palestinians. They broke into their home and cut the throats of the children including a 3- month old baby while the father was trying to protect the child. They shot the mother. These members of the "Religion of Peace" said they have no regrets and would do it again.
  • The Tampa papers down here are reporting on a Dajin Peng, a University of South Florida tenured professor. He allegedly took thousands of dollars from the university claiming he was attending conferences when he was on vacation and working at other schools according to the university investigators. He was not terminated. A university representative said, "Tenured faculty have rights that typical employees do not." Folks, how does it feel to be "typical" employees?
  • And while we're on the subject of schools, Fox News out of NY City is reporting the superintendent of Syosset Schools is pulling down $500,000 a year in salary. Yes, residents in that area pay steep property taxes to fund the school system. She makes more than the CEO of the NY City public school system--$300,000 more.
  • Another poll, this one by CNN, shows the president's approval ratings dropping again. It appears the "bin-Laden" bump is now history.
  • And a Rasmussen Poll shows that only 24% of Americans share the political views of Pres. Obama.
  • "Dumbass Statement of the Week" by Richard Gere.  Last week, he said Pres. Obama will go down as one of our greatest presidents. This is the same knucklehead who once said of terrorists: "If you can see {the terrorists} as a relative who is dangerously sick and we have to give him medicine, and the medicine is love and compassion. There's nothing better." I have a medication recommendation for Gere: Prozac.
  • Have you wondered why there's not been protesting in Saudia Arabia? Me too, but the answer is what is commonly called, bribing. They are paying each citizen $7 grand to keep the peace.
  • It's no secret the country is broke, and people are still having a hard time finding work. Then why is Pres. Obama offering billions to help bail Greece out?
  • The Weiner scandal is a huge political scandal.  Arnold even called Weiner to say, "Thank you."--Fergusen
