Person of the Week: Harry Alford (calls President Obama a “Marxist” and “Brownshirt”)


For various reasons, as previously has been written on this page and others, President Obama will most likely win re-election in 2012 because he has the Black vote in his back pocket and this constituency will vote almost 100% for him, as it did in 2008…  But some  Black Americans such as Mr. Alford (president and CEO of the National Black Chamber of Commerce)  take a different view of Obama and he reportedly will not simply vote for Obama racially in-lockstep — could people such as he create a problem for the president?… 

Cutting-to-the-chase, though, regardless of how badly the economic wellbeing of  Black Americans has particularly deteriorated under Obama, how many Black Americans actually will vote in the presidential election based on something other than race?… 

Only a relative handful?…

Persons of the Week: Frank and Jamie McCourt, of Los Angeles Dodgers baseball


Yeah, Persons of the Week, for reportedly running aground the once proud Dodger organization while using it as their personal ATM…  Major League Commissioner Selig has indicated he is stepping in to help turnaround  the beleaguered franchise

Frank and Jamie (once proud parking lot owners), “‘poster child‘ adults” for handling personal and business problems in one of the worse possible ways — airing their filthy linen in the public square

Attaboy, attagirl, some say: parking lot trash always rises but also always settles to the bottom…  The McCourts, just showing poor business sense or simply parking lot trash?

Teamsters Union bosses in a pickle — union dues pay for dance tights, and more


 With rank and file dues monies, bosses spent 100s of thousands of dollars on dance tights, barbie dolls, cigars, wine, restaurant meals and more …

Potpourri Pan America: muchachos, vote President Obama in 2012; and more…


PONDER THIS:

1.  It’s 2012 election campaign time, folks  — so the White House wants immigration reform, to get the Latino vote?…  He’s already bombed Libya to portray himself as a strong Commander-in-Chief, now, let’s get them votes, muchachos

2.  “Three Cups of Tea” of fallacy? — who picked this guy to help set our Afghanistan policy? 

3.  S and  P says not so good and Obama Campaign 2012 says it’s all political? — by the way, why isn’t the press complaining about the high gas prices?  Oh, they still want to blame Bush?!!!  Give America a friggin’ break Brian Williams, Diane Sawyer, Katie Couric and company!!!

4.  What happened to “transparency” in government? — where is the change that was promised?  It’s worse than it ever was….

5.  Pres. Obama says: don’t ask me no stinking questions? — America is being treated as a Third World banana republic — come on, Mr. and Mrs. news anchors, speak up, you have the freedom to be independent…

Person of the Week: Wisconsin State Supreme Court Justice David Prosser


DAVID PROSSER — Person of the Week.

From archives: [Unionists reacted in earlier confrontations against  Wisconsin governor Scott — photo from Doug Ross Journal.] 

“State Supreme Court Justice David Prosser emerged as the winner Friday over challenger JoAnne Kloppenburg in a heated election that drew national attention because of the fight over collective bargaining and a ballot reporting error in Waukesha County.”… [From the Milwaukee-Wisconsin Journal Sentinel.]

This was a major fight pitting the nation’s powerful public employee unions, as well as private ones, against the forces  in Wisconsin that are trying to reform the political system in order to begin to control out-of-control spending there…

For future general elections and in currently underway recall elections in the state,  does this portend the real mood of the Wisconsin electorate or is this a mere skirmish that will be but a belch in the ongoing budget battles?

Person of the Week: U.S. General Carter Ham


 U.S. General Carter Ham — for bringing attention to the possible use of American land troops in Libya, and drawing attention to President Obama’s seemingly expedient and incoherent foreign policy…  It seems from this vantage point that the president authorized the bombing in Libya in large measure as a reaction to the significant numbers of people who do not see him as a strong Commander-in-Chief, while he was in the midst of preparing to kickoff his 2012 presidential campaign… Furthermore, who knows, maybe if President Obama gets to a point where he believes sending in ground troops into Libya would help him in his re-election effort, and also pacify the American segment that wants army boots in Libya, he might authorize ground troops as well…  General Ham might be prepping the public for such action…

Just sayin”…

Potpourri Pan America: “moderate” ElBaradei now more “immoderate”; and finally, concern about Iran-Venezuela – really!!! And more…


 PONDER THIS:

1.  Another little friend from South America gets irked     — after all the visits by the president and the Secretary of State, who are America’s friends in Latin America, really?

2.  Wasn’t “moderate” Arab ElBaradei supposed to be Pres. Obama’s boy in Egypt?   — either the  Muslim Brotherhood or El Qaeda or a combination could be problematic in Egypt…  Another “Shah booted out of  Iran” situation?  Hopefully not…

3.  KSM to be tried by military tribunal  — Whoa, Mr. Holder (KSM is not a Dutch airline) — are you simply playing politics?!  Think things through, why don’t you…  Or are you the fall guy for those above you?

4.  The federales of socialist Nicaragua say “nyet” to popular demonstrations — Daniel Ortega, friend of the people!?  Heck, when will people learn: boot out the supposed dictators only to install another one…  Who are the federales?!

5.  Is America on the verge of giving weapons to its enemies in Libya?   — that’s the rumor…  Another failure of foreign policy for the Obama Administration?… 

6.  Concern over Iran-Venezuela connection expressed — oh really!!!  Here and in many other places that concern has been continually expressed!!!  Give America a friggin’ break!!!

PREVIOUS:

  Iraq not yet settled but send   the weary military and stressed, expensive weaponry  into another war?  Are reasons given consistent or factual , or is Obama acting like a  Bush-Lite simply the start of campaign 2012?  His military leadership skills were reportedly viewed by the American public as almost wholly lacking recently — more macho image needed, so send in the military as a military tool, maybe!  Not comfortable here about the president’s decisions and the process of getting there…

  Will this policy encourage illegal immigration? —   the president simply does  not seem to want to seal the U.S. border…  “Come on up, we’d love to have you”?

  What would the news media say if Bush were still president?!  —  but  probably they will say it’s still Bush’s  fault…  Rolling Stone stories roll right along…

  Look out, Arab end time is near? — what’s with Iran and the clergy! 

  President Obama “just” returned from South America and Hugo Chavez nonetheless is being “awarded” there. —  will Venezuela be bombed next?  It “is” the beginning of election season…
