Sharon Stone, Tracy Morgan to lobby
lawmakers for arts funding

The Hill [Washington DC], by Judy Kurtz

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 3/30/2013 5:34:44 PM

A swarm of actors and actresses — including Sharon Stone, Tracy Morgan, Tiffani Thiessen, and Alfre Woodard — is trading Hollywood for the Hill, as they head to Washington to lobby lawmakers for arts funding. The group of artists — which will also include Patricia Arquette, “Private Practice’s” Tim Daly, Kevin McHale of “Glee” fame, Sam Trammell from “True Blood,” Giancarlo Esposito, “The Office” actor Leslie David Baker, and Josh Radnor — all hail from The Creative Coalition. The nonprofit organization is sending the delegation to D.C. for Capitol Hill Arts Day on April 26. While in town,

Greedy, wealthy, slobbering piggish, vampires lining up at the government trough to suck the taxpayer dry like they were getting food stamps and disability.

Of course, all in the name of the "Arts".

If it was going to be spent on arts exposure for school kids ok. When I was in 2nd grade we had music memory. You had to learn to recognize 7 or 8 pieces of classical music. The local PBS station ran the pieces a few times. After we learned the pieces we were treated to a concert at Grady Gammage where the Phoenix Symphony played each piece for us. It was wonderful. All of our families went, we were all dressed up. If it´s that kid of arts funding I´m all for it. Somehow I think I´m delusional and they have nothing like this in mind.

NO, not one red cent.
Donate your own money if you feel that strongly about it.
We as a country, MUST start choosing between wants and needs. We can no longer afford both.

Hollywood, you need to start funding stuff for yourselves. Stay out of our pockets!! This just proves Lady Thatcher was right about libs and other peoples money.

If enough Hollywood multi multi millionaires started funding these things themselves then maybe that might even help relieve some of their liberal guilt about having earned so much money pursuing their craft.

Tracy Morgan is regularly billed as a ´comic´ despite any supporting evidence of same.

The word "artist" is way over used. Anyone who can shape a virgin Mary from manure or stick a crucifix in a jar of urine is held in high regard. Let these sickos fund their own deviant "art". Don´t ask us to pay for it.

Obama: Right to vote ´threatened´ by GOP
Washington Examiner (DC), by Meghashyam Mali    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 4/11/2014 7:29:02 PM     Post Reply
President Obama on Friday said that Republicans were behind the biggest threat to voting rights in decades. “The principle of one person, one vote is the single greatest tool we have to redress an unjust status quo. You would think there would not be an argument about this anymore,” said Obama in an address to Rev. Al Sharpton´s National Action Network conference in New York City. “The right to vote is threatened today in a way that it has not been since the Voting Rights Act became law nearly five decades ago,” he added. The president directly blamed Republicans, saying new

President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama are enjoying a rare night out in New York City, dining with friends at an Italian trattoria at the high-end Gramercy Park Hotel. They are joined by poet Elizabeth Alexander, who read at Obama´s 2009 inauguration, Chicago friends Kelly and Andrew Dibble, senior White House aide Valerie Jarrett and sportscaster and former NFL wide receiver Ahmad Rashad. Obama and Rashad played golf last month during an Obama family vacation in Florida. The first couple was in New York Friday for Al Sharpton´s National Action Network conference.

ORLAND, Calif.- It was a busload of opportunity: young, low-income, motivated students, destined to become the first in their families to go to college, journeying from the concrete sprawl of Los Angeles to a remote redwood campus 650 miles north. Those dreams shattered for some Thursday in an explosive freeway collision that left 10 dead - students, chaperones and both drivers - and dozens hospitalized. Desperate families awaited word about loved ones Friday, while investigators tried to figure out why a southbound FedEx big rig swerved across the grassy divide of California´s key artery before sideswiping a car and slamming into

President Reagan was holding a meeting in the Cabinet Room on March 25, 1985, when Press Secretary Larry Speakes came over to me, as communications director, with a concern. The White House was about to issue a statement on the killing of Major Arthur Nicholson, a U.S. army officer serving in East Germany. Maj. Nicholson had been shot in cold blood by a Russian soldier. Speakes thought the president´s statement, "This violence was unjustified," was weak. I agreed. We interrupted the president, who reread the statement, then said go ahead with it.

A copy of Barack and Michelle Obama’s tax returns released Friday shows that the first couple gave only .3 percent of their income to their church in 2013. The Obamas made a total of $59,251 in charitable contributions in 2013 — 12.3 percent of their income — but most of the donations went to primarily secular organizations. From their adjusted gross income of $481,098, the president and first lady gave $1,500 to St. John’s Church, an Episcopalian parish near the White House where they occasionally attend services. The rest of their giving went to 31 different charities, including the American Red

Instead of getting to work on my own tax return, I´d rather look at President Barack Obama´s. So the White House did me a favor by releasing the 2013 joint federal income tax return of Barack and Michelle Obama Friday afternoon. Here are some highlights: • The Obamas paid $98,169 in total federal income tax on adjusted gross income of $481,098. That´s an effective tax rate of 20.4 percent. • The Obamas are due a tax refund of $19,108. What should they spend it on? • Besides his salary, Obama reported $104,809 in business income from book sales. That´s down

The son of the Nevada rancher locked in an increasingly tense land dispute with the federal government, says their cowboys managed to break a blockade and retrieve around 30 head of cattle. Federal agents swooped on Tuesday after Cliven Bundy, dubbed the last remaining rancher in southern Nevada, refused to remove his herd of 900 cows from land he claims has been in his family since 1870. The heavily-armed federal agents, equipped with eight helicopters and backed-up by snipers, surrounded the Bundy ranch after the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) attained a federal court order to confiscate the family´s herd.

A new review is questioning the effectiveness of two key drugs enlisted in the fight against influenza and in turn the investments by governments to stockpile the drugs in the event of a global flu outbreak. The antiviral drugs Tamiflu (oseltamivir) and Relenza (zanamivir ) are commonly used to treat influenza in healthy adults and children. In the case of Tamiflu, the drug does shorten symptoms of influenza by about half a day - as the manufacturer suggests - but there is insufficient evidence to support claims that it reduces hospital admissions or serious complications, such as confirmed pneumonia or

Big Government: As students flood Twitter with images of inedible slop, it´s clear that Michelle Obama´s government school lunch revamp is a costly failure. It´s time to get the feds out of kids´ lunch boxes. The $12 billion federal student lunch program, which serves 30.7 million kids, is losing participants fast — more than a million just last year, according to a recent Government Accountability Office report. The reason: the first lady´s Healthy Hunger-free Kids Act, an act that has accomplished exactly the opposite of what it claimed it would — leaving hungry, angry, disgusted kids and dumpsters full of wasted

Recently elected Democratic Virginia Gov.

The deportation of foreigners living illegally in the United States is similar to the forced internment of ethnic-Japanese Americans in World War II, according to Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi. “I’ll be very honest with you: Looking at the numbers at some point, in terms of how people are treated and deported and families separated and the rest, this has a scent of Japanese internment,” Pelosi told a Politico reporter. “It’s really a black mark,” said Pelosi. Roughly 110,000 ethnic-Japanese immigrants and their American children were detained during World War II after Japan’s sneak attack on Americans in Pearl Harbor. Pelosi also urged Obama
