Harry Reid Breaks His Face and Ribs: Koch Brothers Suspected

Okay, maybe not the Koch brothers, but as one commenter put it, “If you break ribs & facial bones during exercise, you’re doing it wrong.

Updated Picture. Yup, that’s some nasty shit on his eye. From the looks of the shirt there’s a good bit of padding on those ribs.

Outgoing Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid was involved in an exercise accident that caused him to be rushed to the hospital.

According to a statement released by his office, the 75-year-old Nevada Democrat was using a piece of exercise equipment in his home Thursday when it broke and caused him to fall and “break a number of ribs and bones in his face.

“Senator Reid was first brought to St. Rose Dominican Hospital in Henderson by his security detail,” the senator’s office said. “He was then transferred to UMC for further testing, where he was admitted overnight as a precaution.”

Democrats Update Party Symbol, Donkey Out…

The Democratic Party today announced that it is changing its symbol from the Donkey to a Condom because it more accurately reflects the Party’s political stance. A condom allows for inflation, halts production, destroys the next generation, protects a bunch of dicks, and gives you a sense of security while you’re actually being screwed!

Senate Majority Leader and Ex Pro Boxer Harry Reid, Beat His Wife Into a Coma

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…

Barack Is Sure Shoveling Something

Shovel Ready My Ass

Shovel Ready My Ass

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.

See Jonah Goldberg at the National Review for the whole story.

This Is The Democrat Leadership? !Updated w/ New Two-Faced Harry Video!

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.

Missed Cash For Clunkers? You Are One Of The Lucky Ones

If you traded in a clunker worth $3500, you get $4500 off for an apparent “savings” of $1000.

However, you have to pay taxes on the $4500 come April 15th (something that no auto dealer will tell you).  If you are in the 30% tax bracket, you will pay $1350 on that $4500.

So, rather than save $1000, you actually pay an extra $350 to the feds.  In addition, you traded in a car that was most likely paid for. Now you have 4 or 5 years of payments on a car that you did not need, that was costing you less to run than the payments that you will now be making.

But wait; it gets even better:  you also got ripped off by the dealer.
For example, every dealer here in LA was selling the Ford Focus with all the goodies, including A/C, auto transmission, power windows, etc for $12,500 the month before the “cash for clunkers” program started.

When “cash for clunkers” came along, they stopped discounting them  and instead sold them at the list price of $15,500.  So, you paid $3000 more than you would have the month before..  (Honda, Toyota , and Kia played the same list price game that Ford and Chevy did).

So let’s do the final tally here:

You traded in a car worth:   $3500
You got a discount of:          $4500
———
Net so far                           +$1000
But you have to pay:            $1350 in taxes on the $4500
——–
Net so far:                          -$350
And you paid:                     $3000 more than the car was selling for the month before
———-
Net                                      -$3350

We could also add in the additional taxes (sales tax, state tax, etc.) on the extra $3000 that you paid for the car, along with the 5 years of interest on the car loan, but let’s just stop here.

So who actually made out on the deal?  The feds collected taxes on the car along with taxes on the $4500 they “gave” you.  The car dealers made an extra $3000 or more on every car they sold along with the kickbacks from the manufacturers and the loan companies.  The manufacturers got to dump lots of cars they could not give away the month before.  And the poor, stupid consumer got saddled with even more debt that they cannot afford.

Obama and his band of merry men convinced Joe consumer that he was getting $4500 in “free” money from the “government” when in fact, Joe was giving away his $3500 car and paying an additional $3350 for the privilege.

Think this was stupid for those who were crazy enough to swallow this wonderful scheme?
Just wait until we get health care with no additional costs over what most of us now pay for health insurance and the best medical care in the world.  Think that scheme  might be designed by the same people who came up with Cash for Clunkers?
