Poor duplicitous, sniveling Dan Rather, still hocking his “fake documents”


At the same time Danny boy Rather unconvincingly pleads on T.V. and newsprint that he is wiser and holds no animosity toward CBS and his critics, he continues peddling his “fake documents” story, absurdly in such a manner apparently trying to rewrite history…  

Little doubt from this perch that CBS NEWS “signed off” on the original news segment attacking George W. Bush’s military record, and that Dan Rather was jettisoned once the public outcry arose over the fake documents,  but undoubtedly Danny Boy Rather was the duplicitous  instigator of it all and no amount of bellyaching and of  “rewriting copy” will change that…

Person of the Week: Colin Powell, for being representative of people who don’t know when it’s time to “get off the stage”


Person of the Week, Colin Powell, for being one of those who wants so much to be relevant that he now seems, if not a buffoon, then at least a poor example of what he could be. …  His service during the Persian Conflict is appreciated and respected — but his service in the State Department (and thereafter) was a perfect example of those  pathetic ones who simply are more concerned with protecting and promoting their own image than looking after the wellbeing of the nation.

He makes it a point to blame the Tea Party for disunity in the nation?!  Give us a friggin’ freaking break, Mr. Powell — time to exit, … stage left, or right,  but exit. …

Atten – tion! Disorder in the World!


Yes , it seems the anarchists   are demoralizing populations near  and far. …  Who is “managing  ” things?  …

Cases of “she said, he said” — at times can help someone keep a job or get a promotion that is not deserved?


Certainly, there are real instances of various kinds of discrimination and harassment in the workplace and in life in general —  but not infrequently, bystanders can cite cases in places of work where some individuals or groups of individuals continually make unfounded complaints. …   And then, forevermore, employers and/or supervisors will keep or even promote the complainers out of fear that firing or not promoting the  incompetents will result in a lawsuit stating that they were fired or not promoted because it was retaliation for the original complaints.

PanAm, of course,  is not passing ultimate judgement on those who have made accusations against Herman Cain or regarding anyone who has ever filed a complaint in the workplace. …  

Just sayin’. …

Person of the Week: Jean Quan, Oakland, California mayor


Person of the week — Oakland mayor Jean Quan (symbolic of current California and national political “leadership”), whose roots as a liberal community activist  have shown again that such a political philosophy,  in large measure devoid of commonsense, does not help in solving urban problems but rather leads to a more fertile breeding ground for community decay and disfunctionality. …

 

 

Person of the Week: Khaled bin Talal, Saudi Prince — sabotages American interests and safety


Of course it is all about family and self preservation, this prince from the “Royal Family” of Saudi Arabia reportedly  pledging millions for the capture of a single Israeli soldier so that he might be exchanged for Arab murderers and terrorists currently in prison for violent activities against Israel…  But these kinds of actions show why it is difficult for the average American to trust the Saudi leadership when clearly the people in charge over there have no compunction about spending some of the billions they make off Americans purchasing their oil, in order to undermine our interests and sabotage our safety so that they themselves can stay in power.

Republican Party debates: debilitating “demolition derby” debacles or?


Ahhh, American politics at its best, or worse. …

In Nevada ,  yet another traveling circus venue for the Republican presidential contenders and pretenders– the pretenders merely “Don Quixotes”  swinging away at windmills. …   A few others  interested in tripping and ripping up the front-runners for the sake of pleasing esoteric Republican segments of the electorate, while still others serving solely as stalking horses for their compadres…  In the end — there will be an end, right? — will any Republican really win, or will the Democratic Party be the ultimate winner as a result of the Republican Party’s self-inflicted wounds?

Why did the Republican Party agree to this format of  “101” debates?
