Well, well, well. Removed by the user? Can’t have the truth about BHO getting out, now can we?
Yep, I heard it from a friend, who heard it from a friend, who heard it from… well you get the idea. Now it’s up to Dingy Harry to prove he didn’t do it.
I think that fist proves it all…
There’s been some criticism out there since Ford came out with this latest candid customer commercial.
Chris answers that criticism here.
Now that we’ve dispensed with the background, on my wish list is the All American 2012 Shelby Cobra GT 500 Super Snake. There are few people as All American as Carroll Shelby, and as long as I’m dreaming I may as well dream big.
Although, I prefer the more subtle shade of gunmetal gray…
Surely there are less expensive ways to learn that “shovel-ready projects” are a myth.
Back in early 2009, President-elect Barack Obama was asked on Meet the Press how quickly he could create jobs. Oh, very fast, he said. He’d already consulted with a gaggle of governors, and “all of them have projects that are shovel-ready.” When Obama revealed the members of his energy team, he explained that they were part of his effort to get started on “shovel-ready projects all across the country.” When he unveiled his education secretary, he assured everyone that he was going to get started “helping states and local governments with shovel-ready projects.”
In interviews, job summits, and press conferences, it was shovel-ready this, shovel-ready that. Search the White House website for the term “shovel-ready” and you’ll drown in press releases about all the shovels ready to shove shovel-ready projects into the 21st century, where no shovel is left behind.
Only now it turns out that the president was shoveling something all right when he was talking about shovel-ready jobs — a whole pile of steaming something.
In the current issue of The New York Times Magazine, Obama admits that there’s “no such thing as shovel-ready” when it comes to public works.
It’s not that Obama was lying when he said all that stuff. It’s just that he didn’t know what he was talking about. All it took was nearly a trillion dollars in stimulus money and 20-plus months of on-the-job training for him to discover that he was talking nonsense.
Moonbattery did find a shovel ready job that The Anointed Won created:

Only in Washington DC could a person who describes the First Amendment’s protection of free speech wind up in jail for 90 days. The Institute of Justice has decided to challenge DC’s regulation of the tour-guide industry, where the capital of the free world exercises a prior-restraint licensing regime on those who would describe the city to tourists, who come to admire this bastion of liberty:

More than 81,000 gallons of retardant were dropped on two of the biggest fires in the north state in the past two weeks.
That kind of firefighting strategy is coming under closer scrutiny, though, as a federal judge has ordered the U.S. Forest Service to take a closer look at the environmental effects of dropping fire retardant on wildland fires.
“The government has to begin to reassess how, where and when this is done,” said Andy Stahl, executive director of Forest Service Employees for Environmental Ethics (FSEEE), which sued the Forest Service over its use of chemical fire retardant.
“Retardant is toxic,” Stahl said.
On Wednesday, U.S. District Judge Donald Malloy of Missoula, Mont., ruled that the Forest Service needs to complete an environmental-impact statement on the use of retardant by the end of 2011, The Associated Press reported.
The case dates back to a lawsuit filed by FSEEE in 2003, challenging the use of retardant without an environmental impact report, AP reported. The case was dismissed in 2008 after the Forest Service completed an environmental assessment.
But FSEEE filed again in 2008, claiming the environmental document was inadequate, AP said.
Jennifer Jones, a Forest Service spokeswoman, said her agency hasn’t determined whether it will appeal the judge’s ruling or complete another environmental review. Jones said she doesn’t know how much retardant is used in the Shasta-Trinity or Lassen national forests. Nationwide, an average of 20 million gallons of retardant is dropped on fires annually by the Forest Service, Bureau of Land Management and state agencies, she said.
The Forest Service’s policy is to not drop retardant within 300 feet of any body of water, Jones said. Daniel Berlant, a spokesman for the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection, said Cal Fire’s retardant policy is similar to the Forest Service’s.
Berlant said that in 2009 Cal Fire dropped 5.3 million gallons of retardant statewide.
Stahl said his organization has notified Cal Fire that it intends to sue the agency, claiming the retardant kills threatened and endangered species.
Berlant said his agency has not received that notice. He said Cal Fire has studied the environmental effects of using retardant and issued what is called under the California Environmental Quality Act a “negative declaration,” which means using retardant won’t have a significant environmental impact.
Even though only 14 of the 128,000 retardant drops during the past eight years caused the death of protected fish or plants, Malloy said the assessment was still needed, AP reported.
Stahl said he didn’t know of any cases where retardant drops killed protected species in the Shasta-Trinity or Lassen national forests. But hundreds of endangered steelhead were killed when retardant was dropped in a creek while firefighters were battling the Jesusita Fire in Santa Barbara County this summer, Stahl said.
Jones said that using retardant to fight fires protects endangered species from having their habitat destroyed by wildfire.
Water is a better alternative than retardant, Stahl said, noting that retardant is rarely used east of the Mississippi River.
Of the 110.2 million gallons of retardant used nationwide from 2004 to 2008, about 2 million gallons — just less than 2 percent — were dropped east of the Mississippi, Jones said.
Retardant is used more in the West because fires often occur in more remote places, where there are fewer roads, Jones said.
Retardant is about 85 percent water, 10 percent fertilizer and 5 percent other ingredients, Jones said.
“Because retardant contains fertilizer it is more effective than water,” Jones said. “When the water evaporates, the retardant still slows the fire.”
But many plants in the West thrive in tough conditions where there are few nutrients. Introducing high levels of fertilizer allows invasive species to grow and push out the native plants, Stahl said.
Retardant is toxic says Stahl. Hey asshole, so is fire. Retardant and air attack is the only thing that keeps the western US from burning to the ground, and this jackass worries about killing a few fish or plants to save humans.
Stahl also says, “Water is a better alternative than retardant, Stahl said, noting that retardant is rarely used east of the Mississippi River”. And just how many forest fires start east of the Mississippi? Fucking retard.

Of course the Precedent is bowing to foreign leaders AGAIN! BHO Bows To Communist Chinese President.
Robert Gibbs being groomed for Axelrod’s, job? Failing Upward. He stutters like his boss without a teleprompter, can you imagine them trying to get something done in an emergency?
SEIU’s Andy Stern Moving up too? Purple People upheaval: What’s behind SEIU thug-in-chief Andy Stern’s resignation? He’s been to the White House more times than most of the cabinet.
Don’t need no Teleprompter Jesus Go watch the video, it speaks volumes.
What union leaders think of you. If you’re white, you’re “f**king rabidly racist.”
FBI to release the Kennedy (Ted) files. Maybe we will finally find out the real story about Mary Jo Kopechne’s murder.
The REAL party of no. With the Democrats on the defensive and getting beaten up in the polls by their constituents, they are doing what any vicious scared animal does when cornered: lash out
It’s really hard to comment on the stupidity of this statement and keep it civil.
!!!NEW VIDEO!!! Check out the pitiful little worm here talking about Bush only adding 126,000 jobs. !!New Video!!
Only 36,000 jobs lost, and it’s a really big day in America. Get out of our lives Harry, you clueless, pitiful, little worm.

!!UPDATE!! The Won joins in the stupidity! From Michelle Malkin
President Barack Obama boasted Friday that his economic recovery efforts were showing results after the national unemployment rate stayed at a steady 9.7 percent for February.
Obama, touring a small business in Arlington, Va., said that the 36,000 jobs lost last month was ‘actually better than expected’ considering the massive snowstorms that devastated the East Coast.
I’ve been saying it all along, you can’t control mother nature. Now learn from your new found intelligence Precedent Obama, and stop this “Man-Made Climate Change” crap.
