President’s Day means the flurry of quite possible the most obnoxious advertisements - those that portray Washington and Lincoln in various bizarre “looks” as they are used as pawns to hustle primarily cars but also a variety of other items. IMO it is the absolute height of disrespect for arguably two of the greatest - if not the greatest - figures in our history.
Speaking of a Lincoln I just am amazed at the comments that have been attributed to Charlie Lincoln. The sheer hypocrisy is stunning. The ONLY thing Charlie Lincoln has managed to do is at least get some reforms to the state pension system legislated.
Obama has managed to break a string of campaign promises that continue to grow. The confusion of the number of jobs “created,” openness on health care and earmarks being a standard operating procedure. Right now vulnerable Democrats up for the next election cycle are attempting to distance themselves as much as possible from what is being a failed presidency. IMO he is too much an ideologue to change drastically.
The economy looked like there was some turn around in the works but that has been slammed shut with very negative job reports and mounting debt domestically and it other countries.
Toyota is an embarrassment at this point. The cover up has reached scandalous proportions with apparent cover ups, evasiveness, poor response and what may have been the ultimate 1950s indictment of Japanese products - lack of quality control.
I rarely watch Leno but from what samplings I have perused on his apparent lack of success in his new or job and the ability to be Teflon and toss Conan under the bus - granted - a very expensive bus - I am ready to consign Leno to dirt bag status.
Obama: No taxes on those whose income is under $250,000 (lie). Transparency on health care including hearings on C-SPAN (lie). I will sign no bill with earmarks (lie). We have created 3.2 Million new jobs (lie). I could go on and on but I’m ready to cut bait with this hustler.
Least we forget President WOW’s dope slap at the Supremes on campaign contributions one of WOW’s talking points was the potential of contributions being made by foreign corporations. Well, how about his aunt being an illegal alien who lives off our dime giving $240 to his campaign!
Someone made a post that when slots are allowed and casinos are allowed in Massachusetts it will represent a crushing defeat for the anti casino groups. Could not agree more.
State legislators get federal tax breaks. State legislators holding down full time jobs in addition to their legislative duties. Cushy perks and stipends. Lawrence mayor also a state rep. Charlie Lincoln must be a personal hero to some of these folks. Sad thing is all of it is “legal.”
More Global Warming questionable JP type research. Best one was the melting of Himalayan glaciers by 2035. Should have been 2350 but they kept it at 2035 since it looks better.
