Things That Burn My ...


Gas is now over $4/gal here in central New Yawk. I paid $3.87/gal last Thursday. It's like someone greased the skids to Hell. And I lay the blame at the feet of the idiot in the White House. Of course the media still carries Obongo's water and refuses to besmirch the sacred nature of His Emptiness. It reminds me of the Muslim anger directed at nonbelievers whenever the Quran is questioned or their Prophet, Bees Pee Upon Him, is maligned. There can be no criticism of Obongo because "All Your Blame Belongs To Bush."

The Real Revo has a nice piece about this.
As gas prices rose in 2008, network reporters mentioned President Bush in 15 times as many stories than they brought up President Obama in a similar period in 2011.

Bush drew gallons of coverage in 2008. Comparing a 20-day span of rising gas prices in 2008 to 24 days of rising prices in February 2011, the Business & Media Institute found the networks did more than 2 ½ times as many stories during the Bush years versus Obama.
Of course, unlike Bush, Obama has actually called for increases in the price of gasoline in order to goose his green dream. He has placed moratoriums on drilling and, as we reported today, stopped drilling for bogus reasons.

All of this, of course, is trivial compared to his policy of deep deficit spending, a weak dollar and quantitative easing. The irony is that the media blamed Bush for the price of oil and it wasn’t really his fault. Meanwhile, the RDM excuses Obama and it actually is his fault. It is maddening.
I had forgotten this quote. What a great wrap up.
“If I had my choice I would kill every reporter in the world, but I am sure we would be getting reports from Hell before breakfast.” ~William Tecumseh Sherman
Here's another one from Gen. Bill:
I hate newspapermen. They come into camp and pick up their camp rumors and print them as facts. I regard them as spies, which, in truth, they are.

It would be nice to see a scrap of honest journalism from the mainstream media - but it's simply not going to happen. They'll pursue their slavish worship of Obama irrespective.

LL - they have invested too much in him. It's like the Teamsters' Pension fund and organized crime. If Tony "Little Feets" Turtitano goes down, they all go down.

Don't expect anything from the "Lame Stream Media". President Obama know the first thing about economics. That is how he destroyed the US and economy and nearly the world's. He started on a two year quest for the white house by Destroying Consumer Confidence. Economics 101 tells us that once "Consumer Confidence" falters - so goes the economy. Even those "Liberal Fools" at HCC (Harvard Comm. College) know that, at least the honest ones.

I wish this was mine or that I had remembered it and was passing it on. But tonight I heard an interesting thing.

In the days of the U.S.S.R., Pravda (meaning truth) and Izvestia (meaning news) started a saying. There is no news in truth, and no truth in news. The more things change, as they also say...

You have to remember, newsmen have been despised since slightly before they existed. The pleas to not kill the messenger often went unheaded, and that was before the messenger started rearranging the "news". There is some pravda for you!

I wonder if Tecumseh has any living relatives...

The only really good thing about this is he's hurting the people most likely to vote for him. The Problem: They might be too stupid to know it.

A fair media is just a pipe dream, I wish I could live to see it though.
