“Who is going to pay for your house, car, dental care, health care, education, who pays for that?” Sean Hannity asked after his guest said all of these should be free. Occupy Wall Street Organizer Harrison Schultz replied, “Nobody! It’s free.”
Economic Genius!! The Next Nobel Prize for Economics folks! 🙂
The Perpetual Wealth Machine, it produces wealth without any production cost at all. It produces all from nothing!
Amazing! Maybe we can give him a Nobel Peace Prize, Like Obama, for solving the entire economic inequality equation.
Then the revelation that all the violence, drunkeness, and rapes in Zucotti Park last year were because the NYPD planted drunks, criminals and rapists there.
Some parents are calling school officials in Colorado “food Nazis” after they announced a ban on all sweets, including cupcakes, candy bars and even birthday cakes – unless the cakes are made with district-approved recipes.
School officials in Greeley, CO advised parents that new federal guidelines require all food served on grade school campuses to adhere to strict calorie counts.
“Fundraisers held at school are no longer allowed to include food items of any kind,” said Jenna Raymond, of the District 6 Nutrition Dept. “Rewards for children are to include gifts such as erasers and pencils.”
The Greeley County School district is even banning sweets at off-campus fundraisers.
“The only food items allowed to be sold for these types of fundraisers are those that meet the nutritional guidelines,” she told the Greeley Gazette.
That means no more sweet treats like cake at birthday parties or class holiday parties – unless the cake is made with a recipe approved by the school district.
“We have a recipe we use in the district that uses black beans and the kids love it,” Raymond told the newspaper.
“They’re dictating what I can send with my child for lunch – what I can give them for a treat at a school party,” she said. “I don’t believe that’s right. It’s my child. I should be able to feed them whatever I want. They’re not raising my child. They’re not paying for their orthodontic bills. They’re not tucking them in at night telling them they love them. But yet they’re telling me what I can and can’t feed my child?”
She said school officials are acting like “food Nazis.”
“This is how it starts,” she said. “The government is sticking their nose where they don’t exactly belong.”
“What are they going to start doing – checking every water bottle they bring in to make sure it’s not pop?” (FOX)
Maybe they can hire the TSA to check for “contraband”. What’s a little x-ray or a pat down when it’s about children’s health! 🙂
“It’s for the children”.
So was The Witch’s oven in “Hansel & Gretel” 🙂
And will the Adults follow the same guidelines. Of Course Not! That would be silly.
Don’t Do as I do, Do as I Say. And we are far better at running your life for you.
AL-Qaida endorses Ministry of Truth
Al-Qaida spokesman Adam Gadahn: Osama bin Laden pondered the merits of US television news channels as he considered how to extract the best propaganda benefit from the tenth anniversary of 9/11 last year, and concluded that CBS was “close to being unbiased”. (But he got killed first).
MSNBC as questionable after it fired one of its most prominent presenters, Keith Olbermann.
“I used to think that MSNBC channel may be good and neutral a bit, but is has lately fired two of the most famous journalists – Keith Olbermann” wrote Gadahn.
Gadhan describes ABC as “all right”:”Actually it could be one of the best channels, as far as we are concerned. It is interested in al-Qaida issues, particularly the journalist Brian Ross, who is specialised in terrorism. The channel is still proud for its interview with the shaykh (Bin Laden),” he said. “CBS channel was mentioned by the shaykh. I see that it is like the other channels, but it has a famous programme (60 Minutes) that has some popularity and a good reputation for its long broadcasting time.
“In general, and no matter what material we send, I suggest that we should distribute it to more than one channel, so that there will be healthy competition between the channels in broadcasting the material, so that no other channel takes the lead. It should be sent for example to ABC, CBS, NBC, and CNN and maybe PBS and VOA. As for Fox News, let her die in her anger.” (UK Guardian)
PELOSI FOR HER STATE’S RIGHT TO TOKE!
Reacting to an ongoing crackdown on medical marijuana facilities in California, Pelosi said in a Wednesday statement, “I have strong concerns about the recent actions by the federal government that threaten the safe access of medicinal marijuana to alleviate the suffering of patients in California.”
The California Democrat said that medical marijuana is “both a medical and a states’ rights issue.”
Pelosi’s call for the federal government to respect the policy decisions of individual states contrasts with a brief filed with the Supreme Court in opposition to Arizona’s anti-illegal immigration law known as SB 1070. In the brief, Pelosi and other House Democrats argued that “Arizona impermissibly seeks to substitute its judgment and its priorities for those of Congress.”
“[E]ach of the disputed provisions of S.B. 1070 directly conﬂicts with the enactments and intent of Congress on vital issues of national interest,” the Democratic congressmen added. “As such, these provisions are preempted by federal law and therefore invalid.”
Amazing how IMBY (In MY back Yard) makes a difference. But she can imperiously pontificate about other people’s back yards.
ObamaCare, EPA, IRS, TSA…
Don’t Do As I Do , Do as I Say!
Remember when Nancy Pelosi brought “poor,” (she’s rich) “23-year-old” (she’s 30) Georgetown Law student (she is also a feminist activist who specifically went to Georgetown, a Catholic University, with a goal of forcing the school to cover and pay for birth control despite moral opposition to doing so) Sandra Fluk before Congress to ask you to pay for her birth control because it was costing $3000 a year? And remember when Pelosi accused conservatives of waging a war on women because they didn’t want to pay for Fluke’s contraception and Pelosi then claimed Republicans wanted to strip all funding from women’s health programs? The Washington Post fact checker is crying fowl and asks “A GOP ‘assault’ on women’s health?” Yeah, not so much.
Here is Pelosi’s original statement:
“In order to pay for it, [House Republicans] are going to make an assault on women’s health, make another assault on women’s health, continue our assault on women’s health and pay for this with prevention initiatives that are in effect right now for childhood immunization; for screening for breast cancer, for cervical cancer; and for initiatives to reduce birth defects – a large part of what the Center for Disease Control does in terms of prevention.”
And here is WaPo’s analysis:
From Pelosi’s statement, one could imagine a wholesale “assault” to strip funding for women’s health programs. But in fact, there are virtually no specific programs aimed at women currently in the fund. In the future, the administration hopes to add such programs, but that is not the reality today, as evidenced by the fact the administration never raised this concern last year when the GOP-led House also voted to kill the preventive health care fund.
Pelosi could have raised concerns about perceived cuts in preventive health. She could have also noted that women benefit greatly from such efforts. But she — and fellow Democrats — went too far to label this “an assault on women’s health.” Maybe evidence of that will emerge through the regular appropriations process—at which point we could revisit this ruling — but for the moment this smacks of political opportunism.
The fascinating Genius of The Left folks. Bask in the “Superiority”.
