Oil Field of Dreamsby Pat_S on May 23, 2010
A post by Pat The petroleum engineers aren’t having much luck in shutting down the oil spurt despite some novel ideas. Bob Woodward thinks we should hand the problem over to Google. They’re smart people. …it is a potentially giant disaster of the — I mean, most disasters come and go. 9/11 came and went, okay. This continues. …Why don’t they call in Google? Why don’t they call in some of the people who have these great minds? Not everyone thinks the disaster of 9/11 is gone, but that’s another matter. Woodward goes on to explain why the oil companies make so much money. ..I think the one thing we’ve learned about oil is—it’s kind of answered the question why...
Compromising on Female Genital Mutilationby Pat_S on May 7, 2010
A post by Pat It’s just a little nick “down there”. Similar to ear piercing. It’s much better than total mutilation. Probably not even as painful as male circumcision. What’s important is that it would “build trust” with immigrant families. Who came up with this lunatic idea? The American Academy of Pediatrics. Doctors defend genital “nick” for girls The American Academy of Pediatrics has suggested a new way to fight female genital mutilation in the United States: Allow doctors to give girls a “nick” down there. In a policy statement titled “Ritual Genital Cutting of Female Minors,” the Academy suggests that allowing such a ritual could serve as a way to “build trust” with immigrant families and prevent parents from...
The Tammy Radio Allen West Intvby Tammy on April 14, 2010
From today’s Tammy Radio, and courtesy of the TAMs for enjoyment by everyone, here is my discussion with Lt. Col. Allen West, congressional candidate for Florida’s 22nd District. The podcast player is at the bottom of this post. If there is one person who absolutely embodies everything Americans need right now in Washington it’s West. Learn more about Allen and his family at his official campaign website. And for the icing on the cake, above is the video from last year which introduced Allen to America. Watch this and sit back and enjoy realizing that American and her families are still producing the sort of person the Founders expected would be our capable, worthy, and ready for leadership of our...
Health Care or Wealth Care? –Ask Howard Deanby Pat_S on March 29, 2010
A post by Pat Howard Dean rivals Biden in the loose lips department. The question is, in a democracy, where does the right balance between those at the top who are at 20% of the people do most of the consumer spending and so forth and so on, and those at the bottom? I think it — when it gets out of whack as it did in the 20s and it has now, you need to do some redistribution. This is a form of redistribution. If you redistribute too much, then the system doesn’t work ’cause you take out the incentive.
Fox Live Stream Searchlight Rallyby Pat_S on March 27, 2010
A post by Pat Fox News is providing live online coverage of the Searchlight Tea Party rally. Showdown in Searchlight: tea party targets Reid Thousands of tea party activists streamed into Sen. Harry Reid’s hometown in Nevada Saturday morning, bringing American flags, “Don’t Tread on Me” signs and outspoken anger toward President Barack Obama and his health care overhaul. The activists’ star, Sarah Palin, will rally the crowds later Saturday from a makeshift stage in a patch of dusty desert about 60 miles north of Las Vegas.
DNC Cashes In On Violence Hypeby Pat_S on March 24, 2010
A post by Pat Another orchestrated news day. This time it was about vitriol and rage directed against Democrats who voted for the health care bill. The media acted as though the barbarians were at the gates although the actual incidents were few, isolated and small. ABC did its part covering the story but went one step too far and gave the game away. The DNC is raising money from this phony alarm. You can bet it was the DNC feeding these stories to the lapdog media. Is it too low for the Democrats to go to stage some of this? Hah! The incidents are relatively small and isolated, but they have captured the attention of Congressional leaders and law...

The Interviewby Pat_S on March 17, 2010
A post by Pat I think Bret did a great job. He kept Obama on the defensive and Obama didn’t like it one bit. Bret was pressing Obama on the process and Obama wanted to stick to his well-worn talking points and lies. No need for TOTUS. Obama says these things in his sleep. He’s desperate.
