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…

NEWS FLASH!!! A truly believable lady says Elvis lives on Catalina Island…


News at 11:oo.   Apparently until now she had not come forward with her story because all this years someone has been threatening her about not divulging the identity of the round man in sequins  with a penchant for pizza and peanut butter & banana sandwiches.  But  …  for the sake of historical authenticity and 15 minutes she has put her life in danger to come forward.

The woman says that on the night Elvis erroneously was reported to have died she was in a sailboat in the next room and for 15 minutes  heard him cry out  about wanting more food, but no one brought him any…  Noticing that Elvis was in dire need of comfort food she called the police department  once or twice about making a food run for the King,  but the police department was closed…

Person of the Week: Jerry Lewis, he who “brung ’em”, then was discarded unceremoniously


Jerry Lewis ( tho’  irascible sometimes, yes),  for his lifetime of giving of himself to the Muscular Dystrophy Association so that billions of dollars of charitable contributions could be received that could help advance the search for cures. …  Some might not have appreciated his brand of comedy  nor  his at times politically incorrect statements,  but he more than anyone else put the “MDA” on-the-map, and because of his efforts the Association became a major player in the quest for charitable monies… 

But the sad saga continues, alas, because even charitable organizations are made up of political animals,  made up of those with their own agendas, right or wrong,  with little concern about being thankful  to “old Jerry”, who brung ’em to the “Big Dance”. …

Just sayin’…

Another example of a judge acting omnipotently?(re Anna Nicole Smith)


 Anna Nicole Smith Died from Accidental Overdose | Anna Nicole Smith

[Photo from People Magazine]

At age 39 on February 8,  2007, at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Florida,  Playboy Magazine centerfold, actress    , clothes model and celebrity,  Anna Nicole Smith reportedly died of an accidental overdose  of prescription drugs: among them methadone, anti-anxiety and weight reduction drugs (as well as possibly numerous vitamins) —  the legal drugs supposedly were acquired illegally by those closest to her…

After months/years of wrangling by several people over who the legal father of her child was, and over control of her estate, several people in her inner circle were brought to trial over the matter of the supposed illegal prescribing and acquiring of drugs to be used by Ms Smith.

After trial by jury in Los Angeles County, California, and after the jury brought in guilty verdicts against those charged by the County Prosecutors, on January 6 the Trial Judge set aside   the jury’s guilty verdicts altogether or imposed his own light penalties…

Was that a sham or what?…  Another case of the Courts seeing themselves as above the law and against the Will of the people?  Another reason for the nation’s law-abiding common folk to have doubts about activist judges?…

If the judge had doubts about  the evidence in the case, he could have dismissed the case at the hearing stage months prior to the beginning of the trial.  Or the judge could have dismissed the case after closing arguments, and prior to the jury beginning its deliberation… 

But the judge went through a charade, wasted public time and resources, and undermined the jury system, while in effect protecting those who illegally feed prescription drugs to celebrities and others — that is not good public policy nor morally right.

Just sayin’

Person of the Week: Steven Slater

Steven Slater:Steven Slater

Regardless of the circumstances preceding Cabin Attendant Slater‘s dramatic slide from the JetBlue aircraft, to him a plastic cup toast filled with a beverage of whatever is one’s choice (for him, a brewski), for doing it his way…   Now wait for the reality show, as well as the Sunday T.V. talking heads and newspaper columnists give their erudite analyses — including why the chicken crossed the road and what  Nietzche and Al Gore would say to us all about the meaning of the whole episode as it pertains to the world as we knew it pre Slater and post Slater… Prepare to take notes…

“Nuff said”… 

Person of the Week: Roman Polanski

Proof that if a person has enough money and clout in certain circles, can buy a victim’s loyalty and outrun the law long enough,  there will be some in the system who will find a way to let him skate away

An example like this just makes it a lot more difficult to explain justice to people in general and to those with little or no money who rot in jail for lesser crimes.

Potpourri Pan America: Headline news – Elian Gonzalez, the Mexica Movement, Oliver Stone, Obama, Chavez and more


PONDER THIS:

1.  The previous administration would be under attack   —  however advisable the program might have been, if it had instituted this.

 2.  The bear is still roaming  — looking for weaknesses, like in the Cold War, but the button has been reset, no?

 3.  Obama pledged a new relationship with Venezuela  — but has gotten little in return?   Oliver Stone gets into the act.

 4.  A different perspective, quite.   – Nican Tlaca: something to interpret and evaluate. Different/ be ready…

5.  Remembering:   Elian Gonzales –  Who is he and where is he now?
