Fluke-y list for Time mag
Boston Herald, by Michael Graham

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 11/28/2012 5:40:44 AM

When I first saw the report that Sandra Fluke was on Time magazine’s “Person Of The Year” short list, I immediately looked for the logo for the online parody newspaper The Onion. Alas, Time is serious — raising the question of whether the magazine itself has finally reached full “parody” status. Then I thought about it. Why does “Sandra Fluke — Person Of The Year” strike me as so ridiculous? Because she’s a 32-year-old woman who’s still in college (“Grade 25,” as humorist Mark Steyn calls it)?

And thus a once great institution descends into utter trivia on its way to the recycling bundle.

Mainstream media, Gangnam style.

I guess to some degree,Obama won with the manufactured war on women in which Fluke was a major player. Unfortunately is was Limbaugh who escalated this hapless woman´s profile.

The other side of the coin is republicans did a terrible job fighting back against the left´s assertions,especially Romney.Not even mentioned in all this is Obama using Obamacare and tax dollars to buy off a certain % of the female vote.

If republicans proposed using Obamacare to improve men´s health issues,they would have been laughed off the planet.

White (heterosexual) men are almost completely roped off from a whole range of government bennies because they supposedly capitalize on white privilege and therefore aren´t entitled to government help. I´m sure quite a few are in disability but they probably paid into it also.

White privilege is another liberal myth created by the poverty pimps to increase the notion that others are economically and socially oppressed. The truth is whites have more ambition and know how and that´s how they get ahead.

White people get turned down for jobs,loans,credit cards etc. all the time because of historical profiles the same standards apply to others.

I mean there´s no question that housing redlining was and still is in practice to some degree but it´s to protect the integrity of home values and neighborhood blight. Detroit didn´t turn into a basketcase overnight,it took years for it to happen.

Liberals are among the biggest white flighters in the country and even when they´re stuck in near urban areas,they send their kids to private schools.Even so they´re real big on neighborhood diversity with is code for blockbusting.What is the actual tangible benefit to having diverse neighborhoods? Actually nothing but a metric for liberals to pat themselves on their backs

The name Rush Limbaugh is the only reason anyone´s heard the name Sandra Fluke.

Poster #2 gets it right. "Liberals are among the biggest white flighters" - my own lib brother & SIL had to move from a city neighborhood that was being taken over by noisy illegals living three families to a house. SIL was afraid of the newcomers & they moved to a semi-rural area, that while safe, has no close-by ammenities. She complains constantly, but when she preaches about the superiority of BO and his dem policies, she always praises "diversity!" loudly and proudly. I´ve never met a lib who wasn´t an unembarrassed hypocrite.

Trouble is, on this one, Rush was right.

Not only is she one, she´s cheap, ´cause she doesn´t want to use her future $160K salary to pay for her $9 a month pills.

That´s the job of some poor slob in flyover country.

And, @4, your SIL will bring her liberal friends (who are all talk when it come down to backing up what they claim) to that semi-rural area, and make it a high-tax haven for wealthy libs, just as has happened in Vermont and New Hampshire, among other states. It´s what they do.

Time "Person of the Year"? Oh, please. That´s about as meaningful as the Nobel "Peace Prize". It´s a political statement, nothing more. So, give yourself a pat on the back, Kitten. It´s about as praiseworthy as a degree in "Transgender Studies".

"Fluke - parasitic worm - worm that is parasitic on the intestines of vertebrates especially roundworms and tapeworms and flukes."

Sounds about right for her, who wants the taxpayer to pay for her birth control. One of the 47% crowd.

Proponents of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) insist that the law will extend health insurance to millions, expand access to health care, and improve Americans’ overall health. But, as the New York Times recently reported, at least 20 percent of the new enrollees have not paid their premiums. They therefore do not really have insurance. But even for those enrollees paying premiums, having health insurance is not the same thing as getting good health care, or any health care. In fact, it doesn’t matter how many Americans obtain insurance under the ACA. Most will have difficulty finding a physician. Many Americans

INDIANAPOLIS | A Portage airman was among the Hoosier troops stationed in Germany that Gov. Mike Pence met Monday on the first stop of his jobs mission to Indiana´s largest European trading partner. Lt. Benjamin DeLaCruz, a 2007 Portage High School graduate, helped show the Republican governor and first lady Karen Pence around the sprawling Ramstein Air Base and participated in a discussion with the governor about the role of U.S. forces in Europe. "On behalf of the men and women serving overseas, I would like to thank Gov. Pence for visiting Ramstein today," DeLaCruz said in a statement released by the

Cults In Our Midst: Patty Hearst
And The Brainwashing Of America
The Federalist, by Stella Morabito    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/16/2014 5:39:12 AM     Post Reply
Exactly forty years ago Patricia Hearst stunned the nation when she turned up as a bank robber, a mere two months after she was kidnapped by the violent cult that called itself “The Symbionese Liberation Army.” Her astonishing transformation was documented by bank cameras on April 15, 1974. There she was — granddaughter of William Randolph “Citizen Kane” Hearst — wielding a sawed-off assault rifle and terrorizing people in a bank. She had recently announced in a taped SLA communique that she had voluntarily joined the SLA in its fight against the “fascist” United States. She took the nom de

Chevron, Dole cases expose lawyer corruption
USA Today, by Theodore J. Boutrous Jr.    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/16/2014 5:35:01 AM     Post Reply
A few years ago, the corruption convictions of several prominent plaintiffs´ lawyers put a spotlight on dishonesty in American civil courts. Now the sleaze has burst back into the news with cases involving Chevron and Dole Food Co., this time with an international twist. Last month, a federal court in Manhattan found that a U.S. plaintiffs´ lawyer had masterminded a multibillion dollar fraud and extortion scheme against Chevron in Ecuador. Three days later, a California appellate court affirmed the dismissal of a lawsuit against Dole as a "fraud on the court" perpetrated by U.S. and Nicaraguan plaintiffs´ lawyers. These rulings are welcome

   

 



 
Not all of the Pulitzers were

NFL players have Most Valuable Player awards. Major League Baseball players strive for Cy Youngs and Gold Gloves. For journalists, it´s the Pulitzer. Every year, when Pulitzers are announced, most of them are awarded to big corporate media outlets with huge staffs and budgets devoted specifically to the contest. But not always. On Monday, David Philipps, an investigative reporter for the Colorado Springs Gazette, claimed a Pulitzer for his three-day series, Other Than Honorable. Philipps exposed the shameful treatment of members of the U.S. military, many of them wounded combat veterans, in the drawdown of American military forces. Too often,

Joker sob story is just sickening

Another sob story in the left-wing media about Dzhokhar Tsarnaev? Yesterday it was the turn of The New York Times, under the headline, “Marathon Bombing Suspect Waits in Isolation.” Needless to say, the ACLU is up in arms. Boo-hoo-hoo. And if he were in general population, rest assured the headline would have been, “Marathon Bombing Suspect Waits in Fear of his Life.” Needless to say, the ACLU would be up in arms. This one was perfectly timed — on the first anniversary of the Joker placing one of his kettle bombs in front of little Martin Richard, who had moments

Feds Begin Fingerprinting ´High Risk´

Weekly Standard, by Jeryl Bier    Original Article

Four years after Obamacare became law, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is notifying Medicare providers and suppliers of new fingerprint-based background checks. Eventually, all individuals who hold a five percent or greater stake in a Medicare supplier or provider that is categorized as "high risk" will be subject to the requirement. The provision is part of the Medicare, Medicaid, and CHIP Program Integrity Provisions (Title E) of the Affordable Care Act, and gives the HHS secretary broad discretion in applying the background check requirements depending on the potential for abuse, fraud, and/or waste. The new requirements are spelled

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no." Now, the only child of former President Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explains, "I live in a city and a state and a country where I

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a
