Headlines

I thought it might be fun to take some headlines from The Drudge Report and expand on them. I could have gone forever, but I have other things I need to get done today. Hope you enjoy.


Lockerbie Bomber 'Set Free for Oil'... Gee what a shock! I thought showing mercy to a terrorist who was responsible for bringing down a jet and killing all aboard was a little far-fetched. This makes a whole lot more sense.

GORE: Country has 'moral duty' to pass health care reform...
Former VP Al Gore joined with former Prez Bill Clinton in another attempt to sell this "clunker" idea to us. Like I'm going to take any lessons on morality from those two.

UK SYSTEM: Prisoners 'have better diet than Health Service hospital patients'... This has been going on in the US for years. My sister worked for a hospice as a quality control person, and when she discovered falsified records of visits and occasions when prescribed medications were not given given to the elderly and dying, she reported her findings to various governmental agencies, newspapers and lawmakers, and NOT one person did a damn thing. The only result was her losing her job for caring about people and their welfare. She was actually informed that unless the medicare fraud exceeded one million dollars, the government wasn't interested. See, we've already put a price on the heads of senior citizens in this country...and they are supposed to be a protected class under federal government statutes. AND So much for protection under the "whistle blower's" act. Prisoners get far better care and consideration then our elderly. We're worried about infringing on the rights of prisoners...why do they have any? Think it's bad for our seniors...pass the Obama Health Care reform and see how much care they get then. These are the expendable people in that plan. Sad.

CARRIE PREJEAN SUES PAGEANT FOR LIBEL, RELIGIOUS DISCRIMINATION... OH...now here's something that makes me want to cry. So much sadder than the fact that California is burning and the elderly are getting shitty care. "Dethroned" beauty queen is suing the Miss California officials, citing numerous reasons such as libel, religious discrimination and emotional distress. What a great reason to tie up the Superior Court.

RASMUSSEN POLL: Obama Approval New Low at 46%...The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Monday shows that 30% of the nation's voters Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as President. Forty-one percent (41%) Strongly Disapprove giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -11.
There's a shock...people are actually waking and up and paying attention. Think watching Fox has become a trend? I just wonder what the 30% who STRONGLY approve of Obama's performance are smoking.

And finally, the saddest of all. Let all the unemployed, homeless, and hungry people stand up and say, "Awwwwww."

Obama ends frenetic vacation...US President Barack Obama headed back to Washington Sunday after a week-long vacation on the resort island of Martha's Vineyard, interrupted by a crush of outside events. Despite a few rounds of golf and the odd spot of tourism with wife Michelle and daughters Malia and Sasha, Obama did not get the relaxation he sought. The vacation took on a somber tone after the death on Tuesday of Obama's friend and political mentor Edward Kennedy and the senator's funeral mass in Boston on Saturday at which Obama delivered the eulogy.

Isn't that heart-breaking? Who else takes on a new job and gets a vacation after such a short time? And who can afford the plushy house he rented for the week...if I mention the cost, it will sicken you. But having to deliver a eulogy for someone who over-stayed his welcome in congress by at least forty years must have been tough.I wonder if the dearly departed had been anything other than Democrat...would Mr. O still have left Martha's Vineyard to attend the funeral. Martha's Vineyard...does that strike a familiar cord? Isn't that close to Chappaquiddick?

::boo-hoo:: I'm crying, too. Poor Obama had to actually WORK for a change...if you can call it work.

As for the Lockerbie guy...unbelievable. For oil. Do you honestly think the Libyans will honor the agreement?

As for moral duty...didn't Clinton also tell us if they didn't pass healthcare back in the early 90s, the country would explode or something? I'm still waiting for the 'boom'.

The UK system...that could and WOULD happen here, too, folks.

Carrie...I somewhat feel sorry for her because they did horrible things for her, but consider this...would she even have been KNOWN if Perez hadn't made an idiot out of himself over it? She should move on and make a name for herself, showing she actually can work.

And Rasmussen...you're right. It's about time. I'd like to see it in the negative triple digits, honestly.

Great post...and SO TRUE! Thank you!!!!

WARNING: I support the office of the President, not the person currently holding it!
