"I'm having SEX and YOU have to PAY for it................."........?

THIS is quite a situation, isn't it?  Georgetown law student Sandra Fluke says that it’s just too darned expensive to have sex in law school without getting their contraception paid for by insurance.  You'll listen to the video in the linked article and your jaw will drop, I promise you.

"We refuse to pick between a quality education and our health."  She says she and her girlfriends would have picked a different university had they known they couldn't have sex on the university.  The smoke screen she uses (the reason the Dems called her to testify) is pretty clever but really rather lame and transparent.   She talks about a friend who could go into early menopause without the pill and she's devastated "...not to be able to give her mother desperately wanted grandchildren."   I'm hoping her mother pays for the birth control that will keep her fertile enough to have children....when she's married.

Why don't their boyfriends pay for the contraception?  It could be "pay as you go?"  :-)   Wait, that means she's a .............  never mind.

She says girls with health problems can't get the pill because it's the pill, but we all know that a prescription and explanation by the doctor as to the fact that she needs the pill for health reasons would work.  If it won't, that needs to be looked into.
WAIT till you read THIS part of the testimony:

“When I look around my campus, I see the faces of the women affected by this lack of contraceptive coverage," Fluke testified. "One told us about how embarrassed and just powerless she felt when she was standing at the pharmacy counter and learned for the first time that contraception was not covered on her insurance and she had to turn and walk away because she couldn’t afford that prescription. Women like her have no choice but to go without contraception."    "embarrassed and just powerless?"   WHAT?  Were there people pointing at her and laughing?  Maybe she should feel more embarrassed getting the pill for free?  And why the heck can't they use cheap condoms?

Going to senate hearings whining about how you think insurance should cover your unmarried sex while at university and feeling no shame........."You've come a long way, baby."   The wrong way.


THIS is a perfect illustration of America's media today.......

Gitmo Detainees get another goody...$$$


"At a time of record deficits, a new soccer field for detainees at Camp 6 in Guantanamo Bay is just getting the finishing touches -- at a cost of $750,000 to taxpayers.
The project was the highlight of a tour Tuesday of the detention camp for reporters at the facility covering the arraignment in a military court of Majid Khan, a former Baltimore resident and the the only legal U.S. resident on trial at Guantanamo.
The project began in April 2011 and is due to finish this spring. The detainees will now have three recreation facilities at Camp 6, which is home to "highly compliant" detainees who live in a communal setting.
In addition to an indoor recreation field and the existing outdoor recreation field, the new soccer field -- selected because it is such a popular sport with detainees -- is half the size of an American football field.    
The new field has been specially constructed so that the detainees "have maximum access" -- about 20 hours a day. Special passageways allow the detainees to pass into the new recreation yard without being escorted by the military."

Well, our government's not QUITE as worried about our deficit, I guess, right?   I mean, who'd spend 3/4 of a million on a new and improved soccer field for enemies in detention, ESPECIALLY when.....

"Even some of President Obama's most ardent supporters suggest the administration seems eager to close the camps and reduce the detainee population, and plea agreements with minimal jail time are a sweetheart deal for all involved."

Yup....not only do we want to make sure they don't need to be escorted by (those pesky, tough American military!), we want to build something expensive and wonderful so detainees can have access to have fun even though the place might not be open for long.   Boy, if THAT isn't typical for our government these days, I don't know what is.

And, please, leftists....NO, Z is not saying these men shouldn't get any kind of physical activity while incarcerated, and nobody here is suggesting that we need to be unnecessarily rough on those who've (allegedly)  tried to kill Americans, and this isn't a discussion about keeping Gitmo open or not.   FOCUS (if you're still reading this far before you comment), this is about the fact that they HAVE places to exercise already and we don't have the money to build this for them.  Or anybody else, for that matter.

What is the POINT in building this, folks?


Voter Fraud in MINNESOTA...any question?

Do you think it's only in Minnesota that fraud is THIS EASY?

Harvey Weinstein

I am not inclined to do an Oscar's review of last night's show.  I barely watched it, as a matter of fact.
But, this morning, I heard Harvey Weinstein talking about the Best Actor Award and how George Clooney probably only missed "by 2 votes because he's such an incredible philanthropist....he was there for 9/11, he's  helped in Haiti...."   

Weinstein certainly has his finger on the pulse of Hollywood's Academy voters and knows many of them, that what he hears?  Is it an award given for talent or for being charitable?

Don't you think that's a little weird?  Or does it fit the new America which seems less interested in performance and more in being a good guy?

Santorum...what IF he wins Michigan?

HERE is some Yahoo 'wishful thinking'..........."A Santorum win in Michigan takes all of the talk about a new candidate or a brokered convention and puts it on steroids," Republican strategist Todd Harris said."  Do you think so, too?

another Sunday Faith Blog

On a slightly more serious note than the Sunday Faith Blog below, I feel compelled to share this with you.

I chose not to go to church today and couldn't think why I had made that choice. I enjoy it and try not to miss a Sunday.  I didn't go to a class I'd recently started attending before the service and then I stayed home through the service, too.  I had a really painful crick in my neck the last couple of days and I figured maybe that's why I felt like staying home, but it felt so much better when I awoke this morning that I knew it really wasn't that.  Then WHY? 

The phone a couple of hours later.  It was a woman with whom I've become reacquainted in the last few weeks.  She's not well at all and has had horrible troubles since I last had her in my bible study group (non church-related) about 7 years ago.  I hadn't seen her these last few years and was surprised to see her back at the study and I was asked if I'd have her in my group.  There had been a problem with her those years ago and I said I thought she'd be better in someone else's group, but then I suddenly felt she's just who I needed in my group.   She seemed delighted that I'd be her leader but seemed uncomfortable in the class.  She asked me not to call on her for answers as we went through the homework unless she raised her hand and she asked that she not be included on our group Prayer Chain because "I'm intensely private".   Then, after a couple of weeks, she was chiming in with responses and agreed that I could put her health on the prayer chain.  Sadly, her health has taken another bad turn and she has decided she can't come anymore.  But, I emailed her support and she's really opened up via email to me.
This morning, when she called, she said "I needed someone like you to talk with and I'm so glad you're home..."
Then I knew why I hadn't gone to church.  I'm glad I was home, too.   Church is letting out as I type.  I wouldn't have been here.

"And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose."  Romans 8:28

God is amazing.   Actually, to tell the truth?... in my frame of mind the last few days, I needed to be here more than she needed me to be here.


Sunday Faith Blog.......

I hope you enjoyed these...there were many more I rec'd in an email but I thought these were really good.....and we DO need a laugh, don't we.  Even about faith.

"In Him our hearts rejoice, for we trust in His Holy name.."  Psalms 33:21

Have a joyous, laughter-filled Sunday!

Yahoo's dishonesty never quits.

"Romney turns heads with Cadillac remark"  That's the Yahoo Homepage title for THIS ARTICLE
Then you read the article and you hear Twitter was all...well, atwitter... about his wife driving two Cadillacs.  One on the East Coast and the other at their California home.  McCain had more cars than that and who talked about it?  But the push is for liberal Yahoo to get Americans to constantly remember ROMNEY IS RICH.
Of course, it's not two BENTLEYS, it's not two ROLLS''s not two PORSCHES...    What's WITH these people, and what's with Yahoo (other than they can't stand Romney and need to make a big stink about the slightest mention that might get nonthinking Americans ticked off)?   They gloss over the economic plan which was the point of the speech and use the Cadillas line IN THEIR HOMEPAGE HEADLINE?  ...When the headline of the actual piece is  "Romney unveils economic plan in speech at Detroit's Ford Field"!!
By the way.........don't we WANT Cadillac to do well?  Don't we NEED PEOPLE TO BUY THEM, TOO?   GAD.
Man, and the election cycle's only going to bring on more of this stupid stuff, right?  We ain't seen nothin' yet.

Burning Korans ....Newt gets it right

Gingrich blasts Obama’s apology to Afghan president

Republican White House hopeful Newt Gingrich has angrily denounced President Obama's apology to Afghan President Hamid Karzai over the burning of Korans at a U.S. military base.
The former speaker took to his Twitter feed to condemn Obama's letter to Karzai, saying: "It is an outrage that on the day an Afghan soldier murders two American troops, Pres. Obama is the one apologizing."  (Z: that's okay...I'm sure the Afghan army apologized to us for the deaths of two American troops, right?  Oh, no, they didn't...oops)
The incident at Bagram Air Base triggered a violent response from Afghans, with 14 dead over three days of protests. Two American soldiers were shot dead when an Afghan soldier turned his weapon on them at their base in Khogyani in eastern Nangarhar province, district governor Mohammad Hassan told AFP.
Obama's apology mirrored that given by then-President George W. Bush in April after an American sniper in Afghanistan shot a Koran, peppering the Muslim holy book with bullet holes. At the time, White House spokeswoman Dana Perino had emphasized that it was important to show that the US president "knew that this was wrong."   (Z:  I'm thinking that 'holy book' might not have had the terrorist writings and instructions the burned korans are supposed to have had in them, right?)

Ahead of Gingrich's vitriolic comment, Obama spokesman Jay Carney told reporters aboard Air Force One that the apology was "wholly appropriate, given the sensitivities to this issue, the understandable sensitivities."
"His [Obama's] primary concern as Commander-in-Chief is the safety of American men and women in Afghanistan, of our military and civilian personnel there," said Carney. "And it was absolutely the right thing to do."
Asked whether Obama was concerned that Republicans might seize on the letter to reinforce their charges that Obama too-easily apologizes for the United States, Carney replied: "That's a fully false, fallacious and ridiculous narrative that is not borne out by any facts."
(Z:  Except the fact is he did apologize ....:-) 

Did Obama care about this? 
"Muslim holy books that were burned in a pile of rubbish at a US military base in Afghanistan had been removed from a library at a nearby detention centre because they contained extremist messages or inscriptions, a western military official has claimed.
The military official said it appeared that the Korans and other Islamic readings were being used to fuel extremism, and that detainees at Parwan Detention Facility were writing on the documents to exchange extremist messages."   That's from THIS article............seems like we shouldn't have apologized if they contained extremist messages, doesn't it?  And I guess we'll be waiting a very, very long time for an apology for the DEATHS of two precious Americans.   (and thousands more, of course)

my food blog's finally got a new post..........I hope you come by, there are some pretty fun stories and good talk about CHEESE!   thanks!

GOP DEBT?? 'licking YOUR chops'? Get a load of THIS:

THIS struck me funny, considering the Washington Post hasn't gone to too much trouble to show how Obama's actions are what's put TRILLIONS onto our debt.
What do you think?

Just saw THIS...and wondered where the HELL does Obama GET OFF?    I don't usually speak like this at my blog, but I am so tired of the way he insults anybody who thinks differently than he does.  What kind of president talks like this?...and, of course, he does this to a University crowd;  real brave, Obama, there's a crowd you have to be on your toes for (as if).   


The Debate

Who do you think won last night?   I think my pal Rich Galen is wrong about Santorum v Romney's performances, but I didn't watch the whole thing.  What do you think?   

I'm interested in hearing the reasoned contributions of my Conservatives commenters...thanks for taking the time.

Would you attack? I'm carrying this post into Wednesday post because the conversation is excellent. Join in COMMENTS..I added a question to my post, so please answer that, too:

If you were the American President (and I wish most of my readers were), what would YOU do to guarantee Iran won't hit Israel or us?

And, if you were President of Israel, would you do something without America if the trend of Iran's threats and their nuke buildup/capabilities continued as it has?   I'm curious.

THE ADDED QUESTION IS THIS:   What would Iran have to do before YOU thought that America should strike them in some way, not necessarily a nuclear strike but some kind of physical strike (not sanctions)?

A paraprosdokian is a figure of speech in which the latter part of a sentence or phrase is surprising or unexpected in a way that causes the reader or listener to reframe or reinterpret the first part. (Z: it ends with an IAN, so I think it's an Armenian figure of speech! :-)
"Where there's a will, I want to be in it," is a paraprosdokian.   Winston Churchill loved them.
1. Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.
 2. The last thing I want to do is hurt you. But it's still on my list.
 3. Light travels faster than sound. This is why some people appear bright until you hear them speak.
 4. If I agreed with you, we'd both be wrong.
 5. We never really grow up, we only learn how to act in public.
 6. War does not determine who is right - only who is left.
 7. Knowledge is knowing a tomato is a fruit. Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.
 8. Evening news is where they begin with 'Good Evening,' and then proceed to tell you why it isn't.
 9. To steal ideas from one person is plagiarism. To steal ideas from many is research.
 10. A bus station is where a bus stops. A train station is where a train stops. On my desk, I have a work station.
 11. I thought I wanted a career. Turns out I just wanted paychecks.
 12. Whenever I fill out an application, in the part that says, 'In case of emergency, notify,,,:' I put  'DOCTOR.'
 13. I didn't say it was your fault, I said I was blaming you.
 14. Behind every successful man is his woman. Behind the fall of a successful man is usually another woman.
 15. A clear conscience is the sign of a fuzzy memory.
 16. You do not need a parachute to skydive. You only need a parachute to skydive more than one time.
 17. Money can't buy happiness, but it sure makes misery easier to live with.
 18. There's a fine line between cuddling and holding someone down so they can't get away.
19.  I used to be indecisive. Now I'm not so sure.
 20. You're never too old to learn something stupid.
 21. To be sure of hitting the target, shoot first and call whatever you hit the target.
 22. Nostalgia isn't what it used to be.
 23. Change is inevitable, except from a vending machine.
 24. Going to church doesn't make you a Christian any more than standing in a garage makes you a car.
 25. Where there's a will, there are relatives
Clever, aren't they?  Got any of your own??

Let's have a little CNN OBAMA BUMP, huh?

THE OBAMA BUMP from Roberta Flack to Piers Morgan and Soledad O'Brien.......did you know this 'bump' is Obama's?  I didn't, either.  Did you know that CNN 'reporters' were so overtly biased? heh. Ya, I know. I did, too.
but, it's okay........they're lefties.  Apparently, it's just a given that one must support Obama.  Especially among those at CNN.
But, FOX "is the biased cable channel".. :-)

This goes with the Whitney posts below and I like to think she'd approve:

Whitney Houston's death, while a sad thing, was the direct result of very unwise life choices. It dominates the news. Charlie Sheen is 45 and his story is all over the news because he is a substance abuser, an adulterer, sexually promiscuous and obnoxious.

Lindsay Lohan is 24 and her story is all over the news because she is a
celebrity drug addict, thief and lesbian.

Something as frivolous as Kim Kardashian’s stupid wedding [and short-lived marriage] was shoved down our throats, While........

Are all Marines that gave their lives last month for you (not to mention the approximately 4000 others who've died in the last ten years). There is no media for them; not even a mention of their names.

We need to HONOR THEM!!  God bless you, Rest In Peace, and THANK YOU, TROOPS.
(thanks, Impertinent...good one)

Sunday Faith Blog and Whitney Houston

Millions of people all over the world sang "Jesus Loves Me" yesterday during the Whitney Houston funeral.

God works in strange ways, doesn't he.   During her service, millions of people saw the strong faith, true hope, and complete trust in Jesus she had and those who spoke still have.  T D Jakes stressed that, very often in our lives, it "..only looks like (in our adversities) death has won....but it hasn't."  

Whitney's bodyguard told us that he called her Bible "Raggedy" because it was so tattered from use, so marked up, so ...raggedy.   He said she'd take out a blouse from her suitcase if she couldn't fit the Bible in.   She was a strong believer and her life showed that even strong believers will suffer (not 'can suffer', but will suffer).  It showed that even strong believers who suffer still believe in their Lord and Savior, like Whitney and all of those people at the service do.

Marvin Winans preached what every pastor should preach this Sunday, or every Sunday.  He talked about how what the Devil ("Yes, I said the Devil," he interjected, because we don't hear about him too much in churches today) wants to use our circumstances against us when things go bad for us....he wants us to trust in our own abilities to make things happen and not rely on Jesus.  He talked about how every life has significance and God has a purpose for us.  He talked mostly about we must prioritize and make decisions based on our faith.  He said God cannot leave us if we put Him first.

He prayed at the end of his eulogy, "...We will not leave here feeling bitter or upset...God has spoken and the church says AMEN."

What a wonderful tribute to Whitney's faith and our faith.  What a wonderful sermon.  Let her life teach us all that God comes first, and even then we'll have problems but He'll get us through and bring us home. 

Have a good Sunday.  Please pray for her family.

"She said I've done what I had to do today....I need to rest.."  said Whitney Houston's body guard.   One thing I am getting from this morning's funeral is how much she gave in spite of being tired and worn out.  Her body guard implored us to stop being so hard on the entertainers who give us so much.

I believe that's a message we all need to remember.   And I think he and others who knew Houston well and are mourning her death, but also mourning her inability to overcome her drug and alcohol problems, are telling us  Whitney did what she did just to keep on going, to really rest, to get away from the demands on her which she seems to have fulfilled maybe better than most of us could.  She was kind and sweet and was taken advantage of by some. She did her best. 

On Drug Use During Her Marriage, 2009
"There were some times we'd laugh our tails off. We had a ball. Sometimes you do have a good time. But when it gets to the point where you're sitting in your home and you're just trying to cover what you don't want people to know. It's painful. And then you want more just so that you don't let anybody see you cry. Or anybody to see we're not happy."

Rest in peace, sweet Whitney.

And man, the Winans family is THE coolest :-)


The Sharks are at it again.....

The Yahoo headline is CHINESE SOUP PUTS OBAMA UNDER SCRUTINY.  But, can you tell me where in THIS ARTICLE it shows Obama had any scrutiny for having taken dim sum from a Chinese restaurant in San Francisco which also serves shark fin soup?   And why should he?   You know I'm no fan of this guy, but how picky can people be if they found this such an offense?  OR is this just a cheap chance for the media to get to say he "surprised and delighted lunch-time diners" ?

By the way, I had shark fin soup in Bangkok and it's like eating a bowl of the best chicken broth you EVER had except with a mess of silk stockings lying in the bottom of it.  I sipped the incredibly delicious broth and left the pile of awful, gelatinous slime.  You should have seen the faces of the waitresses and the eight Asian men Mr Z and  I had dinner with as the women took my bowl.   "She didn't eat the fins!"   No, I sure didn't.....

Think the president should take flack for this?  I don't.   I can list a million other things, but THIS?

Reporters joining TEAM HELL with bias, huh? Finally, conservatives are proven right.

This is an amazing adjunct to my post below, which I hope you all read (no, I don't HOPE, I insist, because Americans MUST KNOW THIS INFORMATION)
RECORD 19 REPORTERS, MEDIA EXECS JOIN 'TEAM OBAMA'.......(the sentence at the end is even more 'choice' than this one)

February 17, 2012 12:52pm, byPaul Bedard

For some Washington reporters and media execs, cheering their team from the sidelines just isn’t good enough: Tugging on a red, white and blue Team Obama jersey is the answer.
That’s the case for a whopping 19 journalists and media executives, including five from the Washington Post and three each from ABC and CNN, who’ve gone into the administration or center-left groups supporting the president.
Those inside the administration hit 14 this month when the Post’s Stephen Barr joined the Labor Department. That’s a record, say some revolving door watchers, and could even be much higher: The Post reports that “dozens” of former journalists have joined the administration, although Washington Secrets couldn’t verify that tally.

Many are in communications and speech writing offices, most prominently Jay Carney, the president’s spokesman who ran Time’s Washington bureau, and husband to ABC’s Claire Shipman. Some joined as the news business collapsed, many to finally voice their politics, and others, notably former Transportation spokeswoman Jill Zuckman, because she liked her future boss, Secretary Ray LaHood, a rare Republican in the administration. That relationship rocked: LaHood broke through the lower-tier Cabinet P.R. ceiling to become one of the most well-known Transportation secretaries ever. She had worked for the Chicago Tribune.

The revolving door isn’t a surprise to critics of the media and Obama. “The number of reporters going into the Obama administration merely confirms what I knew and what most conservatives long believed,” said Noam Neusner, himself one of the few reporters hired as a Bush speech writer. “There is a vast supply of liberals in newsrooms, they are very happy to support Obama administration policies if they can get hired and they barely hide their ideology in the way they cover the news.” Neusner, who I worked with at U.S. News, said that he too might have been guilty of a pro-Bush bias, but said correctly: “My editors and colleagues were surprised to hear that I was a Republican.”

A former GOP Capitol Hill and cabinet spokesman added, “It’s frustrating to see so many reporters that had relationships with trusted sources give up their ‘impartiality’ and start playing for the other side. It does show that the game is stacked in favor of the other side when most reporters still working in their profession remain silent.”

Stephen Hess, a presidential and journalism scholar at the Brookings Institution, said reporters can be “conflicted” when they trade places. “On the other hand,” he added,
“reporters going back to journalism after a stint in government are always better reporters in that they now understand how government really works.” (end of article)
Yup, now reporters know how government really works and they like it and aren't ashamed of it. Ideological whores$$. Can they have any credibility now or in their future careers unless they create the socialist, leftwing world they seem so desirous of, the one where freedom and hope and opportunity are GONE? I'm hoping for some remarks from my lib commenters who will still insist the media's not left "because of FOX" :-) Poor America.

"We must take FOX News discredit.....making it illegitimate in the eyes of the news consumers.."

See my title?  How long have I been saying here at geeeZ that this is the left's goal?   Here's the actual full quote "We must take Fox News head-on in a well funded, presidential-style campaign to discredit and embarrass the network, making it illegitimate in the eyes of news consumers.”     As if this is news to conservative bloggers? We're being joined by thinking liberals........check this out:

Liberal Alan Dershowitz gets it right HERE (and American Thinker always gets it right...amazingly good information).   Here's the piece by their James Lewis:

Does the left seem totalitarian to you? Does the vile scapegoating of every single GOP candidate but Romney (and his turn is coming) look like the rise of a one-party state? Who does Obama really remind you of? 
Well, Harvard Law professor Alan Dershowitz has finally said the magic word, specifically about Media Matters and the survival of Israel, but really about the core militant left today.  Including its favorite billionaires. (Z: let me just interject, the 'magic word' link is to Breitbart TV.  Now, for you liberals who despise Breitbart, you might want to write it off because he published it...but, really? (It's a video, let's see you disprove Dershowitz's words, okay?).  It's the truth (again) and your liberal media should be utterly ashamed they HAVE NOT MENTIONED THIS SCANDAL yet):
Said Dershowitz, 
"First of all, [Media Matters] are not liberals. They are radical Stalinists, for the most part. ... They're radical extremists....And any association with the Obama administration is going to hurt the Obama administration. There's not enough room under a big tent for both me, and people who are like me-support Israel, I'm a centrist in support of Israel, I'm in favor of the two-state solution-there's not enough room for me and the bigots of Media Matters. The Obama administration is going to have to choose....I could not vote for any candidate who had anything to do with Media Matters. That's clear. That's as clear as can be. I will not-I will take an oath here that I will not vote for a candidate who has any direct association with Media Matters."
Maybe conservatives who keep seeing totalitarians on the left aren't crazy after all. 
The power of leftist totalitarians is a huge problem for American safety and liberty. But letting them thrive and grow in secret is the worst part of the problem. William Buckley kicked totalitarian ideologues out of the conservative movement decades ago. 
The Democratic Party just imported them under politically correct labels. 
When big media voices tell us that the US Constitution is outdated, that democracy can't work, that socialist Europe represents the future, that America is evil, while the US President bows down to the King of Saudi Arabia and the President of China ... there's a message. When the President invades Libya without even notifying Congress, as required by law and the US Constitution, there's a message. When the US Attorney General violates the laws passed by Congress, not just once but repeatedly, and laughs at Congressional oversight, there's a message. 
Alan Dershowitz just gave a name to that message.  *end of article

A little after 1 p.m. on Sept. 29, 2009, Karl Frisch emailed a memo to his bosses, Media Matters for America founder David Brock and president Eric Burns. In the first few lines, Frisch explained why Media Matters should launch a “Fox Fund” whose mission would be to attack the Fox News Channel.
“Simply put,” Frisch wrote, “the progressive movement is in need of an enemy. George W. Bush is gone. We really don’t have John McCain to kick around any more. Filling the lack of leadership on the right, Fox News has emerged as the central enemy and antagonist of the Obama administration, our Congressional majorities and the progressive movement as a whole.”
“We must take Fox News head-on in a well funded, presidential-style campaign to discredit and embarrass the network, making it illegitimate in the eyes of news consumers.”
What Frisch proceeded to suggest, however, went well beyond what legitimate presidential campaigns attempt. “We should hire private investigators to look into the personal lives of Fox News anchors, hosts, reporters, prominent contributors, senior network and corporate staff,” he wrote.
After that, Frisch argued, should come the legal assault: “We should look into contracting with a major law firm to study any available legal actions that can be taken against Fox News, from a class action law suit to defamation claims for those wronged by the network. I imagine this would be difficult but the right law firm is bound to find some legal ground for us to take action against the network.”
Frisch went on to call for “an elaborate shareholder campaign” against News Corporation, the parent company of Fox News: “This can take many forms, from a front group of shareholders, to passing resolutions at shareholder meetings or massive demonstrations are [sic] shareholder meetings.”
Given the leaky nature of electronic communications, it’s unusual to see the term “front group” used approvingly in office email. Yet Frisch continued: “We should also hire a team of trackers to stake out private and public events with Fox News anchors, hosts, reporters, prominent contributors and senior network/corporate staff.”
Preparing his bosses for the potential cost, he added that, “If we need to buy tickets for events that these people will be speaking at, so be it.”
The memo goes on to suggest new and unusual ways to harass Fox News: “detailed opposition research” on the network’s staff and executives, attacks against Fox News employees on Facebook and other social media, mailing anti-Fox News literature to their homes and placing “yard signs and outdoor advertising in their neighborhoods.”
At one point, Frisch suggests putting “a mole inside of” the network.
The cloak-and-dagger tactics seemed to make Frisch jumpy. “Fox is likely to retaliate,” he wrote. Media Matters should find “ways to protect the privacy of our employees and the security of our office.”
David Brock apparently took this warning seriously. By the next year, Media Matters had two security guards in the office, and Brock’s personal assistant was carrying a holstered Glock to protect him.

Z: That's from THE DAILY CALLER.  (Liberals, calm down....your CNN and networks aren't covering this true story yet and probably never will, so most Americans will never know what horror your side is up to in blocking information from the public.   THIS is the new America your ***** leftwing journalists are promoting.  WOULD that more of you would feel the shame Dershowitz feels and actually want to do something to pull our media back into honest journalism..............see, it's not about the information FOX gives, this is about killing the messengers of anything the Left doesn't like.    WHY are you afraid of a THINKING PUBLIC?

Did Media Matters already push FOX to the left (because  of and through the work of George Soros)?  Check THIS OUT.    They got rid of Beck and good conservatives who want ALL sides of every topic are enraged.  

Is there a way to get the left honest in their reporting and stopping this onslaught they've had against FOX since before it even opened?  WHy are they so afraid of people getting all sides and thinking for themselves? (that's a rhetorical question, trust me...we all know why)

blogger word verification SPAM

How many of you with Blogger don't have WORD VERIFICATION requirements and get spam because of it?
Blogger's now got TWO word verifications and, as I travel our corner of the blogosphere, I see it more and more and it's blinding to figure those stupid things out.   Anybody ever get spam for having the verification off?
And how's spam present itself, anyway?

Your child will eat THIS and LIKE IT, says the State?

Will we sit back and take THIS kind of unbelievable behavior?  Suddenly, in America, 3 chicken (possibly  fried)  nuggets are suddenly more healthy than a mother-prepared lunch of a turkey/cheese sandwich, banana and potato chips because the STATE SAID SO?   Here is the gist of the story, you can click on the link for more, if you can, pardon the pun, stomach it:

RAEFORD — A preschooler at West Hoke Elementary School ate three chicken nuggets for lunch Jan. 30 because the school told her the lunch her mother packed was not nutritious.

The girl’s turkey and cheese sandwich, banana, potato chips, and apple juice did not meet U.S. Department of Agriculture guidelines, according to the interpretation of the person who was inspecting all lunch boxes in the More at Four classroom that day.

The Division of Child Development and Early Education at the Department of Health and Human Services requires all lunches served in pre-kindergarten programs - including in-home day care centers - to meet USDA guidelines. That means lunches must consist of one serving of meat, one serving of milk, one serving of grain, and two servings of fruit or vegetables, even if the lunches are brought from home.

When home-packed lunches do not include all of the required items, child care providers must supplement them with the missing ones.

The girl's mother - who said she wishes to remain anonymous to protect her daughter from retaliation - said she received a note from the school stating that students who did not bring a "healthy lunch" would be offered the missing portions, which could result in a fee from the cafeteria, in her case $1.25.
....(see link above for more)

Yes, we have inspectors now checking lunches in all schools....and demanding children pay for any of the food group they deem missing.    Don't you think it would be better if the States took the money they're paying inspectors and gave food to children in mostly inner cities which don't even get food?
I think so.   I remember our school cafeteria offered a bowl of mashed potatoes with a glob of dark brown gravy in the middle of it and I used to buy that and love it.  Isn't it amazing I lived to tell it? :-)

This is NUTS (wait, are nuts on the Statelist!?) and we're doing NOTHING to stop it...........wake up, America.

Heavy Metal........

............and I agree?    ARGH!   MEGADETH!   (who knew?)


Mitt Romney "Tries to show his sensitive side"

The title of the article is "On the trail, Mitt Romney is trying to show his sensitive side."   The Yahoo headline page says 'Romney tries to get emotional'...
HERE is the linked article but I had to publish it all here so we could discuss it...and I could interject:

DENVER—Mitt Romney has long campaigned as the economy's Mr. Fix-It, the man who would "restore America back to its greatness," as he frequently says. Emotion is something he has rarely talked about, much less exhibited on the campaign trail.
(Z:  I wonder what presidents on the campaign stump have ever 'talked about' emotion?)

He is not a candidate who lingers with voters. His interactions along the rope line or at meet-and-greets are usually succinct. At stops throughout the early primary states, Romney spent a lot of time shaking hands, signing autographs and posing for photos—but not much time actually talking to people.
(Z:  Again, most presidential candidates have to keep moving....and we've all seen plenty of Romney talking to people in diners, etc.  Good thing he hasn't spoken to anyone as badly as Obama did with the man who became famous as "Joe the Plumber")
At a stop in Charleston, S.C., last month, a man approached Romney and told him he lost his job and was planning to vote for him in hopes that he could get the country back on track. "Thank you," Romney replied. He didn't press the man on details and instead kept shaking hands as he moved down the line.
But as he has struggled to hang on to the mantle of the frontrunner in the Republican presidential race, Romney has tweaked his stump speech in subtle ways to counter the perception that he's too robotic and stiff—or maybe even too rich to care about average people. He has begun diverting from his usual stump speech, which was heavy on his explanations of his love and faith in America, to talk about the people he has met during his second presidential run.

"I've had the opportunity over the last several months to go across the country and meet people in this great land of ours, and these have been challenging times," Romney said at a stop in Colorado Springs. "I was getting my hair cut in a place in New Hampshire, and the barber, in his seventies, had expected to retire but couldn't afford to."
In Elko, Nev., Romney spoke of how "heartsick" he was to have recently met a group of seniors "who thought they would retire but are working minimum wage jobs to keep food on the table."
In Reno, Romney spoke of a couple he met who "used to think about where they were going to send their kid to college," adding, "Now they are wondering if they can put food on the table until their next paycheck comes in."
In Las Vegas, he spoke of "college kids" who pressed him on whether there will be jobs when they graduate. And at a stop just outside Denver, Romney spoke of a married couple he met who learned they were pregnant with their second child on the day they lost their home to foreclosure.
Romney never names the people he talks about, but he uses them as a way to talk about what he believes is the failure of President Obama's time in the White House.
(Z:  He never names them?  What's the assumption there, he's made it all up?  Could it be he didn't hear a name or didn't write every name of everyone he spoke to down?)

"These have been a tough three years," Romney says at virtually every stop. "This president has failed the American people."
There have been rare public moments where Romney has had intimate encounters with voters. At a stop in Sumter, S.C., last month, an ABC News reporter witnessed Romney reach into his wallet and hand an unemployed woman cash as he shook hands with voters after a rally.
(Z:  the ABC reporter 'witnessed' it so it wasn't done with flourish that demanded notice, was it.  And, just how intimate do the encounters need to be other than shaking hands, hearing people yell information like 'my daughter graduated and can't find a JOB'  at the candidates like they do, sometimes having enough time to really hear a constituent?  Just how intimate...this isn't Clinton, after all! :-)

Romney's aides and supporters say that, behind closed doors, he is far more at ease than his persona on the stump suggests. They say he is someone who has a big heart—and is nothing like the rich, aloof man that his rivals have tried to define him as.
At a stop in Centennial, Colo., a supporter introduced Romney by telling a story of how the candidate rescued the 14-year-old daughter of a coworker at Bain Capital—a story that was mentioned repeatedly in 2008 but has been rarely mentioned during this campaign, four years later.
And Romney briefly mentioned his time as a Mormon lay pastor during a campaign stop last week in Atlanta—a subject he has mentioned only fleetingly during this campaign. He used the moment to talk about his experience in dealing with people who were struggling.
"In my church, we don't have a professional ministry, and so people are asked to serve as the minister, or the pastor of their congregation from time to time, and I had that privilege for, I think, over 10 years," Romney said, the Washington Post reported. "And in that capacity, I had the chance to work with people who had lost their jobs, in some cases, or were facing other financial distress, losing their homes. And I found that those circumstances were not just about money or numbers. They were about lives, and they were about emotions."
Asked about Romney's anecdotes, an aide to the candidate downplayed the idea that they were evidence of a shift in strategy—insisting that Romney was merely trying to define America's struggles "in personal terms." (end of article)

Z: Do our candidates take enough time to speak one-on-one, and is that even really possible?   What would he have to DO to convince our liberal media Romney's heart's still ticking?  And do you see the media's headlines and how they can sway? "ROMNEY HAS NO HEART, NO EMOTION"  (how ridiculous......effective, but really ridiculous)

Stone's son, Ali..........What do you think of this?


US filmmaker Sean Stone, son of Oscar-winning director Oliver Stone, converted to Islam on Tuesday in Iran, where he is making a documentary, he told AFP.
"The conversion to Islam is not abandoning Christianity or Judaism, which I was born with. It means I have accepted Mohammad and other prophets," he said in a brief telephone call from the central Iranian city of Isfahan, where he underwent the ceremony.
Sean Stone's famous father is Jewish, while his mother is Christian.
The 27-year-old filmmaker did not say why he converted.
According to Iran's Fars news agency, Sean Stone had become a Shiite and had chosen to be known by the Muslim first name Ali.
Sean/Ali Stone has acted in minor roles in several of his father's films, and has directed a handful of documentaries.

Well, don't look now, Sean (oops...Ali), but you have a fascinating and unusual view of Christianity and Judaism.  Of course, your free will gives you the opportunity choose what you want from Christianity or Judaism, ignoring Scripture, and think you're not abandoning it.   God bless you and keep you in your decision.  


"TRUTH TEAMS"??!!.....the Obama folks are good, aren't they? :-)

HERE is a fascinating story, maybe even frightening, about a not so *'overlooked' principle of Liberalism and its accompanying hubris.  (Oddly enough, Ducky made a comment on my post just below this one, "The Six *Overlooked Principles of Conservatism",  that really fits this post well;  Here's the pertinent part of Ducky's comment "The entire game now is to demonize one another. Fail to notice areas of agreement and similarities and claim the moral high ground.).."

Talk about shutting others out, demonizing, and 'claiming the moral high ground,' the Obama folks are NOW launching TRUTH TEAMS so, when the Conservatives show any other perfectly respectable, informed way of looking at Obama's record and his plans for the future, these 'trained people' can set straight those poor Americans, who might be otherwise duped by the Republicans. :-)
You see, it's important that we Americans believe that the Liberals can DO no wrong, that there ARE no other ways of looking at things, and we're all wrong believing there are, right?  (wrong)   Here's a snippet from the article I linked above (Have Pepto Bismol ready, it's astonishing):

"If the other guys are going to run a campaign based on misrepresenting the president's record - and their own - we have two options: sit back and let these lies go unchallenged, or fight back with the truth," deputy Obama campaign manager Stephanie Cutter said in an email. "We're fighting back."

It's not only this type of endeavor by the Lefties that will help him win in November, it'll be the way the media will be covering this endeavor, the articles, the CNN and network coverage, everyone talking about this TRUTH TEAM thing.   See how that sounds to Americans who don't read enough information or aren't curious enough to understand that this is all just public relations?   VERY cunning and very smart on the part of the White House, isn't it.

Where have Republicans been since Obama's recently implemented so many of their plans we'd been told by Obama didn't exist?   Suddenly, after 3 years in which he could have implemented lots of things, (two years of which he had a Dem House and Senate), etc., he's touting the Republicans plans and calling them his own...but, that's fine for him because the media adopted his line about the Republicans "not having anything", too.  It's all very cunning, very planned, and if anyone thinks we can beat Obama short of his being overheard and recorded (and it had better not be recorded by Breitbart because the Left knows he's a liar :-),  saying "I'm a Communist Muslim who hates America," they're nuts. (Actually, that could get him votes today in this new America, too, come to think of it)   Of course, the media'd remedy any statement he was caught saying with something like "you have to see it in CONTEXT!"  HA!

How successful do you think these new TRUTH TEAMS will be?   Think they'll be paid? 

Oh, and Happy Valentine's Day to you all.
