And now I have a new one, but news first.
Apple is a Democrat Organization
Maybe they think that if they kiss up to Obama he won't run them out of the country with tax hikes.
I call that 'delusional.' And I'm so glad I don't have an iPod. From Gateway Pundit:
Republican Ari David ... sent this today. The Republican candidate running against far left socialist Henry Waxman is being denied his free speech by Apple Computer , Inc. Apple officials notified Ari David that they were rejecting his submission for an app. They told his team that they were doing so on the grounds that they deemed the content in the app was defamatory against Henry Waxman.
By 'defamatory' they mean "told the complete unvarnished truth." You can see the list of unvarnished truths at GP's blog; I'm not going to relist everything.
This isn't the first time Apple has done something like this. But it does reinforce my happiness that my my mp3 is not an iPod.
Barack Obama Sinks Low... Again
This would be news if it wasn't, what, the 18,000th time? I stopped counting a year ago. Obama proves how stupid and delusional he is.
If you're drinking anything while reading this, you need to swallow and set your cup down before continuing, okay?
Good. Here's the headline: Obama Says Daniel Pearl's Beheading Captured World's Imagination.
Did you go off teleprompter again, Barack? Beheadings are NOT fuel for the imagination. They are sick and wrong!
That’s crazy sick. Obama told reporters yesterday that the video of Islamic radicals sawing off a Daniel Pearl’s head with a butter knife “capured the world’s imagination.”“Obviously, the loss of Daniel Pearl was one of those moments that captured the world’s imagination because it reminded us of how valuable a free press is.”No, Barack. It was horrifying.
And… It had nothing to do with freedom of the press. They beheaded Daniel Pearl because he was an American and a Jew. They beheaded Daniel Pearl because they were Islamic radicals. Something you have not yet figured out.
Obama astonishes me. Just when you think he can't get lower, he does. Cutting someone's head off with a butter knife. I might need to throw up now.
And, the third news story: Arizona Tells Los Angeles to Shove Off
Okay, so maybe they didn't quite say it like that, but still. This brings a tear to my eye. A happy tear. Thank heaven some people -and states - are standing up for liberty. The letter I'm about to cross-post here comes from a Representative of the Arizona Corporation Commission, Gary Pierce, and was sent to the mayor of Los Angeles.
Dear Mayor Villaraigosa,
I was dismayed to learn that the Los Angeles City Council voted to boycott Arizona and Arizona-based companies — a vote you strongly supported — to show opposition to SB 1070 (Support our Law Enforcement and Safe Neighborhoods Act).
You explained your support of the boycott as follows: “While we recognize that as neighbors, we share resources and ties with the State of Arizona that may be difficult to sever, our goal is not to hurt the local economy of Los Angeles, but to impact the economy of Arizona. Our intent is to use our dollars — or the withholding of our dollars — to send a message.” (emphasis added)
I received your message; please receive mine. As a state-wide elected member of the Arizona Corporation Commission overseeing Arizona’s electric and water utilities, I too am keenly aware of the “resources and ties” we share with the City of Los Angeles. In fact, approximately twenty-five percent of the electricity consumed in Los Angeles is generated by power plants in Arizona.
If an economic boycott is truly what you desire, I will be happy to encourage Arizona utilities to renegotiate your power agreements so Los Angeles no longer receives any power from Arizona-based generation. I am confident that Arizona’s utilities would be happy to take those electrons off your hands. If, however, you find that the City Council lacks the strength of its convictions to turn off the lights in Los Angeles and boycott Arizona power, please reconsider the wisdom of attempting to harm Arizona’s economy.
People of goodwill can disagree over the merits of SB 1070. A state-wide economic boycott of Arizona is not a message sent in goodwill.
Commissioner Gary Pierce
This guy is a hero. Well done, sir, well done.
And on that note, allow me to unveil my new Arizona Rocks! poster. Which, because I now love Arizona, has been shamelessly linked to an Arizona travel site, just to spite liberals.
It's definitely the most flamboyant of my sidebar posters, that's for sure. And I hope no one in Arizona is to mad at me for using part of their flag for the background, but I like how it looks like that. Some of the colors might have to be changed, and I'm sure it'll get moved around a few more times, but I'll deal with that later.
