The Ghost of Snapped Shot

Or, welcome to my low-maintenance heck.

News Idiocy Of The Day

I was just perusing my web-email page and saw the latest news headlines.  I just had to say something about them.

First up is this headline:

Obama warns of a 'double dip' recession

AP - President Barack Obama says he's worried that spending too much money to help revive the economy could undermine a fragile U.S. recovery and throw the economy into a double-dip recession.

Yeah.  Too late for that Mr. "We need to spend TRILLIONS before its too late".  It's too late to start playing the budget hawk Mr. Socialist Big Spender.  Just limiting excessive spending and holding us to only 12 TRILLION in deficit is not going to get us out of this massive debt hole you have put this country in to.

Next up was this...

Maersk Alabama repels 2nd pirate attack with guns

Don't you think that it is ironic that maritime sailors with guns repelled villainous pirates who also had guns?  I bet the liberals of this world are cringing at the thought that these civilian sailors had their own guns.  It isn't their place to take the law in to their own hands.  They should have called the cops, waited, and let the authorities handle these ruffians.

Obama: Professed 9/11 mastermind will be convicted

Wait.  I thought Obama was doing this to assure a proper and fair trial?!?!  But yet, the President of the United States is already declaring his conviction even before the trial starts?  Haven't we had enough of this president rushing to judgement?  If he can not be fair about judicial proceedings, then how can he be fair about the running of the country? 

He can't.  He hasn't.  He has learned to not be.

Oct. home construction, permits fall unexpectedly

About all I can say about this is.... DUHHHH.

What did they expect?  A half million people are losing their jobs each and every month.  The same number of people are giving up finding work.  The official unemployment rate is 10.2% and climbing.  The unofficial unemployed rate is around 22%.  The dollar is tanking, gold is skyrocketing, oil prices are starting to rise again, and the world is getting antzy for a new monetary format.

What's not to think that people would go out and buy new homes!?!?

Add to this..

Consumer prices up 0.3 percent in October

Consumer prices continue to climb, inflation risk is increasing, jobs are disappearing, incomes are falling..... What's not to like about Obama's change?



UN: Fight climate change with free condoms

The battle against global warming could be helped if the world slowed population growth by making free condoms and family planning advice more widely available, the U.N. Population Fund said Wednesday.

The agency did not recommend countries set limits on how many children people should have, but said: "Women with access to reproductive health services ... have lower fertility rates that contribute to slower growth in greenhouse gas emissions."

What The?!?!?   WTH?  I ....  I...  (shakes head).  I just can't come up with a comment.
