I fear the giving mankind a dependence on anything for support in age or sickness, besides industry and frugality during youth and health, tends to flatter our natural indolence, to encourage idleness and prodigality, and thereby to promote and increase poverty, the very evil it was intended to cure.
Some would say that this comic image is in poor taste. Others, Americans for example, would probably find it hilarious. Many of the latter would find it even more hilarious were it to really happen.
Wanna Toss Him In With The “Lower Taxes Now” Bunch?
For myself, I think it’s pretty funny as an image and as an idea. It’d make a great reality TV show. We could just drop members of opposing groups in cells together, let them “discuss their differences,” and broadcast the ensuing hilarity for America’s enjoyment. 😉
It’d be like the WWE cage matches, but without the oddly and disturbingly transsexual costumes.
A glamorous French model, a busty American co-ed, and an exotic African woman are traveling aboard an airline when the pilot announces that the plane is about to crash. Each beauty, putting the urge to panic aside, took immediate and decisive action to ensure their rescue.
The french model hastily puts on make-up, stirring up much curiosity. “Rescuers, they will save a beautiful girl first!” She declares.
The American co-ed quickly unbuttons her top and removes her bra, smirking. “The rescuers will save a girl with big, beautiful breasts!”
The African woman rolled her eyes at the other to beauties, stood up, and pulled her panties down and tossed them aside. “You two are fools!” She told the other two as she draped herself across her seat. “They always look for the black box first.”
Fox is the most trusted television news network in America according to poll results released by Public Policy Polling on January 26, 2010. That has to stick in the craws of the Liberals, though not nearly so much as Fox’s ratings and revenue sticks in the craw of the other media outlets.
But don’t expect to hear much about these poll results from any MSM source, including News Corp.
The other media firms certainly aren’t going to talk about this. Fox News strongly outperformed all of them. That, in combination with the White House’s attacks on Fox’s credibility, make it’s very unlikely that they’re going to say anything about their being less trusted as a news sources than their powerhouse rival.
The Liberals sure as Hell aren’t going to talk about this. They can’t even spin it into being the partisan results of a Right-biased poll because Public Policy Polling is a Democratic Party machine with almost entirely Liberal clients. If the results of the poll are skewed – which is not in any way not proven or even posited – it is unlikely that they’d be skewed in Fox News’ favor. 😯
Public Policy Polling is the group that included the question, “Do you think President Obama is the Antichrist” in a poll about support for ObamaCare. Need anyone say more about their bias?
News Corp certainly isn’t going to boast about being the most trusted source of news in America because, while Fox News might have been the most trusted of the the news outlets in the poll, it still wasn’t shown to be particularly trusted by people in America. Truly, Fox’s numbers are not worth bragging about.
The Overall Scores
The overall Trust, Distrust, and Not Sure response percentages to Fox, CNN, NBC, CBS, and ABC from the 1,151 registered voters polled on January 18th and 19th, 2010.
So Fox News is definitively the most trusted media outlet for news, with a solid 10% lead over its nearest competitor, CNN. It is also the only MSM outlet for news who was more trusted than it was distrusted (49% : 37%) by respondents to the poll.
But only slightly less than half of the respondents said that they trusted Fox as a source of news! Being the best of a bad breed is still being part of that bad breed.
No, don’t expect to hear much about these poll results from any MSM source, including News Corp.
During President George W. Bush’s tenure as POTUS there were many Liberals who liked to deride him by calling him, “King George,” and were often found whining and gnashing their teeth over his “Imperial Presidency.” Those were doing so claimed that their issue was that President Bush was expanding the powers of the Presidency, largely through the profligate use of Executive Orders to bypass the will of Congress.
One is forced to wonder if any of these myrmidons of the Left will have enough courage of their convictions to complain about “King Barack” in the same or at least similar manner?
Now, even after paying for what we spent on my watch, we’ll still face the massive deficit we had when I took office. More importantly, the cost of Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security will continue to skyrocket. That’s why I’ve called for a bipartisan fiscal commission, modeled on a proposal by Republican Judd Gregg and Democrat Kent Conrad. This can’t be one of those Washington gimmicks that lets us pretend we solved a problem. The commission will have to provide a specific set of solutions by a certain deadline.
Now, yesterday, the Senate blocked a bill that would have created this commission. So I’ll issue an executive order that will allow us to go forward, because I refuse to pass this problem on to another generation of Americans.
On Tuesday, January 26, 2010, the US Senate declined to approve and pass a bill that President Obama wanted passed into law. His response was, on Wednesday, January 27, 2010 – the next day – to boldly and very publicly declare that he would defy and bypass the entirety of the Legislative branch of the US government and create his desired fiscal commission by Executive Order.
King Barack indeed! I guess he’s been listen the filth, Valerie Jarrett, too much and has decided to take power and rule.
If the Left actually had any principles, there would be outrage over this. There won’t be though since the Left has very few, if any, principles.
Poor President Obama has a bit of a quandary. We’ll he be a leader and make a decision when all his choices are bad for his future as a President and for his hopes of reelection in 2012, or will he be a survivor – and a two term President – by choosing not to decide?
Obama’s Quandary – Too Lead Or To Survive
It’s one thing to be a rat caught in a trap. It’s another and, for a politician, worse thing to be the mouse caught between a number of traps. Knowing the doom that awaits and having to choose between – or to choose none – is a far worse torment.
Each piece of cheese looks so tasty, but he knows that whichever one he chooses – Healthcare, Global Warming, Foreign Trade & Relations, National Security, or the Economy – will result in his political demise and the loss of whatever hope he might have for reelection.
Of course President Obama has it even worse than the mouse in the picture. He’s a mouse caught between traps but he’s not alone. There are the Liberals, his constituency right there with him and the Liberals are much like mice and rats; they have the tendency to devour their their own when trapped for any length of time. 😉
