Post-SOTU: Media More Focused On
Rubio´s Water Than Economy

Big Journalism, by John Nolte

Original Article

Posted By:ketchuplover, 2/13/2013 1:47:34 AM

This evening, President Obama spent a fairly large chunk of the early part of his fifth State of the Union regurgitating the same tired ideas and bromides to fix the economy that we heard in his first State of the Union. This, even though these policies have delivered the slowest and most lackluster economic recovery in almost a century. (Snip) A few minutes after the president´s speech, Florida Senator Marco Rubio gave the Republican response, during which there was an awkward moment when he stopped to take a sip of water.

Comments:
Rubio´s was a great speech, and the water pause we can relate to. Prior to this, my 81 y.o. mother said, "Listen - he needs a drink of water." So rather than distract us with a dry, rasping voice, he broke decorum and got himself a drink. Had he not done so, the media focus would have been on his dry, raspy voice, rather than the content of a good speech. How silly! Today´s media would have asked 148 years ago, "Aside from that, how was the play, Mrs. Lincoln?"

I missed that part (chasing cats), but who cares if he took a sip of water. If your throat is dry, take a drink! Big deal. People are so stupid and petty.

Chris Mathews is being crude as usual. This water bottle thing is the 0bama way of starting the destruction of Rubio.

If the LSM has any fairness (which they don´t), they´d remember how they treated Bill Clinton after his unending nomination speech of Dukakis. He just laughed, and they LOVED IT! Talk about "in the tank"!

The "media" have no conscience.

Both Rubio and Paul called for a balanced budget amendment to the Constitution. That, not any meaningless blather King Barack inflicted upon his subjects, is the real news from last night.

Eh, it was pretty funny -- especially the lead up to it as it was obvious boy wonder had a major case of the nervous dry mouth high school debaters often get when tgey find themselves in front of a big audience for the first time. Panic set in and he ackwardly guzzled that water rather hysterically. Not ready for prime time. And as much as he tries to sell himself on his biography, ala Oblahma, he sounds more like a preening John Edwards than an Obama. Say what you want about Dear Leader, but the guy is smooth.

Smooth? Obama is poorly educated and doesn´t even bother to read the papers. The U.S. is leading the charge in reducing meaningless carbon dioxide output and does Stinky the Gunrunner know it? No, ...he´s stupid. He is needlessly plowing under the US economy while by his measure we are doing more than anyone else in the world to reduce meaningless CO2. I mean, believing in Co2 catastrophism is the surest sign of a low intellect and toadying along with those who do, is no. 2. I´m so frustrated. Stinky has no idea what is going on.

Lucky for the media that Rubio got a drink of water during his speech. Now they have something petty and human to tweet about all day. Otherwise they might have had to discuss the speech.

Why couldn´t they put him at a podium with a glass of water, or at the very least have the water at arm´s length? The whole thing was so awkward and made me cringe. I knew the enemedia would harp on it! But I did love the speech!

He was stocking up on water to later use it on the shoes of the MSM.

Mickey Rooney, Legendary Actor,
Dies at 93
Variety, by Carmel Dagan    Original Article

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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)

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as
