A Guide to the Inauguration´s
No-Shows

Atlantic Wire, by David Wagner

Original Article

Posted By:ketchuplover, 1/21/2013 7:36:38 PM

George W. Bush, Mitt Romney, even Oprah Winfrey—the famous people who didn´t attend Barack Obama´s second inauguration say as much about the ceremony as those who did turn up. The no-shows offered many different excuses for staying home—some legitimate, some paper-thin. And some of these no-shows hurt more than others. As Washington´s presidential party carries on into the afternoon, let´s take a look at the people who aren´t celebrating Obama´s second term in D.C., assessing their alibis and the severity of their snubs. George W. Bush Excuse: George H.W. Bush just got out of the hospital last week after

Comments:
Ho hum. Was the president inaugurated today? I must have missed it as much as he missed me.

The Atlantic used to be a pretty good magazine. This lame piece is indicative of its present state of decay.

Those who were named, well, except for Clooney, have been insulted and trashed by this man for years. I would have been disappointed if they showed up. And why didn´t Mitt Romney show....are you kidding me? He was so mistreated by this man, and I use the term loosely, so lied about it was or should have been a crime. Anyone who voted for this fraud, and there are a couple in my family, should be ashamed of themselves. Low info indeed.

For the same reason they don´t go to strip clubs, Michael Moore film premieres, Satanic rituals and similar establishments.

I´d love to know what W and his Mom said privately about attending.

Romney has no reason to go to Washington, D.C. and congratulate Obama for successfully trashing both his personal and professional reputations for the last year. Romney did the right thing and is better off in California, besides its warmer there.

"W" attended the last inauguration out of protocol, and then watched as the jerk proceeded to insult, shame, deride, and blame him for Everything negative about the country.

Romney was made into wanting to screw people into the ground in the pursuit of "more money" for the 1%ers.

And David says they should have been there!

If I was Bush or Romney, I wound´t walk across the street to p#*& on his shoes if they were on fire!

Ah, did widdle Barry get his feelings hurt because "W" and Mitt wouldn´t come? Maybe some day Barry will understand that you can´t lie about and demonize someone every time you give a speech and expect those people will revere you. Glad to see "W" and Romney didn´t lend their presence to this waste of money.

If someone does not want to attend a function then they owe no explanation to anyone. Politely decline.

Mickey Rooney, Legendary Actor,
Dies at 93
Variety, by Carmel Dagan    Original Article
Posted By: ketchuplover- 4/6/2014 11:52:45 PM     Post Reply
Mickey Rooney, the pint-sized actor who was one of MGM’s giant box office attractions in the late ’30s and early ’40s, died on Sunday. He was 93. As adept at comedy as drama and an excellent singer and dancer, Rooney was regarded as the consummate entertainer. During a prolific career on stage and screen that spanned eight decades (“I’ve been working all my life, but it seems longer,” he once said), he was nominated for four Academy Awards and received two special Oscars, the Juvenile Award in 1939 (shared with Deanna Durbin) and one in 1983 for his body of work.

Vampires, nudists, snakes: Nobody

Orlando Sentinel, by Scott Maxwell    Original Article

Last week, news broke that a congressional candidate in Gainesville had a secret pastime: impersonating vampires. And superheroes. Some people would call this nutty. In Florida, we just call it Tuesday. Seriously, that´s not even our highest-profile vampire story. Remember the "vampire killings" from Lake County? Some of our stories are heartbreakingly tragic. But so many are also mind-numbingly strange. In Florida, we do weird the way Kansas does wheat. Here, giant pet snakes escape. And breed. And then invade our national parks. We have fish that eat people, alligators that eat people and people who eat people.

Brothers´ app blocks texting
while driving
Orlando Sentinel, by Richard Burnett    Original Article
Posted By: ketchuplover- 4/6/2014 10:53:48 PM     Post Reply
One of the latest tools targeting the growing problem of texting while driving didn´t come out of Apple, Google or Microsoft. It was the brainchild of two Orlando-area entrepreneurs who recently launched a new mobile app called Txt Shield. The idea behind Txt Shield, which runs on Android phones, is to short-circuit any texting capability when people are cruising down the highway, according to brothers Philip and Geoffrey Stiles, co-founders and partners in Txt Shield LLC. Parents can install it on their teens´ phones; employers can put it on company-issued phones; and individuals can download it to help resist the urge to

Report: Obama Admin Released
Tens of Thousands of Illegal

Breitbart´s Big Government, by Matthew Boyle    Original Article

President Obama’s Department of Homeland Security caught then released 68,000 aliens who had previously been convicted of a crime, a new report from the Center for Immigration Studies shows. The report, provided to Breitbart News ahead of its late Sunday evening release, reviews internal Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) metrics to conclude that the Obama administration released 35 percent—or 68,000—convicted criminal aliens back into the U.S. general population when they could have been deported. (Snip) In response to these findings from CIS that follow up on his office’s report last week, Sessions said immigration law in America has essentially ceased to

San Jose, Calif. — A usually busy DMV office in San Jose was closed Friday after a motorist waiting to take a driver´s test crashed her car into the building and caused a gas leak. The driver declined to give her name but told KTVU she was nervous about taking the driver´s license tests because this would have been her third try. Around noon the line started to move but she said she hit the accelerator instead of the brake and rammed a motorcycle rider in front of her. Then, she said she swerved to try to avoid running over the rider and

Obama on undocumented Irish:
Our immigration system is broken
Irish Examiner, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: ketchuplover- 3/16/2014 12:05:16 AM     Post Reply
President Obama says the thousands of Irish immigrants in the US are being denied opportunities because of the US strict immigration laws. The President was speaking the traditional Shamrock ceremony at the White House as part of the St Patrick´s Day celebrations. The issue of immigration reform was a priority for the Irish Government delegation, led by Enda Kenny. The delegation has been lobbying in Washington during the St Patrick´s Day trip for reforms to benefit the 50,000 undocumented Irish there. President Obama said too many undocumented Irish were denied the chance to contribute to society as they were not able to pay taxes

These are the 634 runways where the missing Malaysia Airlines plane could have landed after a potential hijacking. Today Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak said investigators believe flight MH370´s disappearance is the result of ´deliberate action´ by someone on the plane. During a dramatic press conference, he said satellite evidence showed the aircraft´s transponder was turned off and it change direction shortly before it vanished. (Snip) Mr Razak said it is believed to have been heading in a westerly and then north westerly direction. The revelation gives hope to the families of the 227 passengers and 12 crew that the Boeing 777 may

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to
