I’m about done reading the news, I swear. Maybe I’ll feel better about everything tomorrow (Tuesday), but Monday night, when I am writing this post….notsomuch.
-Hollywood stars are now calling American Sniper a film about a NAZI….just imagine; a film about a real hero making more money than a film about perverts and crime? They can’t take it.
-Afghans who helped save Navy SEALS are now seeking asylum or they’re going to be killed.
-FOX is being mocked for so stupidly calling Birmingham, England, a “No go Zone” and Bobby Jindal made an ass of himself saying that because Steve Emerson did. BIRMINGHAM? THE CITY? What was he thinking? I think he needs to go make another response to a STOTU speech and really bow out of any political future. What thinking person publicly announces BIRMINGHAM is shut to non Muslims? And he tried to worm out of it so unartfully.
-The State Department says not all terrorists with American passports will have them revoked. Pardon me, but WHAT THE HELL?
-That complete idiot Al Sharpton thinks the Oscars are racist though SELMA is nominated for best film. But he feels there should have been Black actors and actresses (I refuse to call a female thespian an actor, sorry) nominated. I guess next year we’ll have BEST BLACK ACTOR and BEST HISPANIC ACTOR? Or maybe just BLACK because the Reverend wouldn’t care about anybody BUT Blacks? What a monstrous human being he is.
-and Obama speaks Tuesday night.
It’s a good thing I had a great day and dinner with good friends tonight.
Which of the above ticks you off the worst? OR, CHEER ME UP!
Steve Emerson admitted that he misspoke. Unlike many others whom others here can certainly name, he’ll never be forgiven.
I’m avoiding almost completely reading the news right now. The newspapers arrive, and I toss them straight into the recycle bin. Mr. AOW and I are too sick with what is probably influenza to care about current events. Busy trying to breathe!
What ticks me off? All that and much much more Z.
It’s relentless now, a loser feeding frenzy.
AOW, I wish the best for you both, the FLU is not good at all. My lunch buddies just had the FLU and were out for a week and a half.
Will be forgiven, I’m sure: MSNBC Racist Says Bobby Jindal “Trying to Scrub Some of the Brown Off His Skin” (Video).
It’s a misery. Mine started Wednesday, Mr. AOW’s on Friday afternoon. I’m still unable to return to work.
Hollywood is quickly becoming irrelevant these days with any thinking Americans, but we still have to worry about the Obama voters.
Actresses are still actresses in your book, Z? Good for you. Knowing this, I would bet that you still:
* call ‘flight attendants’ what they were for the first 75 years of commercial flight: stewardesses
* refer to ‘sanitation engineers’ as garbage men.
* call ‘calorically challenged’ or ‘big boned’ folks as fat
* mentally challenged/impaired folk as retards (Rahm Emanual does)
Ah, sometimes I pine for the gool ol’ daze….when a secretary was a secretary, not an administrative assistant. Too many damn additional syllables in our world today.
I don’t think Jindal made an ass of himself. I watched his interview with Wolfie … and although CNN attempted to invalidate Jindal, he was articulate and he refused to back off from what he said. And what he said quoted a British police commissioned from Birmingham.
Mustang, the whole city of Birmingham isn’t a no-go zone. That’d be like Cleveland, Ohio being a no-go zone. The article I read sure didn’t represent the situation like what you saw; I’m glad for your different take on it and, obviously, am sick of the journalists ridiculing all of FOX for these remarks.
This video is worth seeing of Jindal with a very liberal Brit interviewer.
Nowhere is the British police comment….Did he mention that to Wolfie?
fredd….I still slip and say STEWARDESS sometimes (Shame on ME, right?!) I completely agree with all you said!
Woodster; ya, they vote. uninformed
AOW…no Emerson will never be forgiven. What a truly amazing thing to even suggest. ALL OF BIRMINGHAM…..
Heck, even all of DETROIT isn’t……….:)
I’m so sorry you and Mr. AOW are so sick. I know it takes a lot for you not to go to work. I hope you’re better very soon.
Yes he did, Z … and once more, Jindal is making an observation about the tendency of Moslems to segregate themselves away from mainstream society, to impose upon non-Moslems, Sharia compliant behaviors. Bobby Jindal is saying in 2015 exactly what Enoch Powell said in 1968. How is that making an ass of himself?
“Afghans who helped save Navy SEALS are now seeking asylum or they’re going to be killed.”
If our government* is dragging its feet on this issue then this ticks me off the most.
*A government which allows almost anyone to breach what passes for a border
I’m with you, Z. Our rehearsal class starts at 5:30 p.m. tonight so will miss his speech. Aw Shucks!
Mustang, when someone like Jindal says all of Birmingham’s a no-go zone, that’s a problem…and that’s what I’d read…that he mouthed Steve Emerson’s preposterous statement. How could anybody hear Emerson say ALL of Birmingham on FOX and not ask “What did you say?” And then repeat it?
Honestly, I’m Googling now and can’t find what i’d read before….that Jindal repeated specifically the Birmingham line.
I’m TOTALLY on the side of Jindal’s argument about no-go zones being a terrible thing and that some areas of big cities are turning out like that and it has to stop, you know that.
But you are an ass when you quote someone without looking better into a statement like ALL OF BIRMINGHAM.
If he didn’t use Birmingham in his talk, and I can’t find it, he was right. And, if he did use it, I still think he’s right on all the other points he’s making. There is no doubt at all that there are zones muslim radicals have taken over and after reading liberals on this subject and how they’ve utterly insulted FOX for having Emerson make that statement, I see they’re leaning on the fact that they are not OFFICIALLY NO GO. Of course, nobody, even Emerson, has said they’re officially that…. and Jindal rises to that occasion by reminding us that it’s not FORBIDDEN for police to go in, they’re just scared to death to GO in (I know that from Paris)…they’re often attacked when they enter certain neighborhoods, cars are burned (we all know that…it’s an ongoing thing, not just that rioting from about 6 years ago, by the way)….
If Jindal didn’t use Emerson’s assertion about Birmingham, then I’m wrong and admit it. I can’t find that now but did read that he had earlier.
Does anybody have anything to say about my other stuff?
There is the text of Jindal’s speech…no BIRMINGHAM mentioned and I agree with 100% of the speech.
Now the Mayor of Paris is saying she’s going to sue FOX for the comments of Steve Emerson. I’m wondering why she doesn’t sue Emerson, since it was an interview and any news venue is susceptible to a guest saying ANYTHING?
Also, believe me, there might not be official no-gos but there are parts of Paris, streets, etc., where cops don’t go. If they don’t, would you?
MAL, actually I have to at least read the text, something only slightly less abominable than having to SEE his ridiculous plans for ruining America.
As Mia Love so aptly and correctly put it on FOX this morning, the deficit is enormous, so he has to tax us back out of it…but the poor will lose. How much can we tax without jobs being lost? How does one just keep taxing and taxing to pay for freebies and not turn into socialism?
I believe the doctor who helped us nab Osama bin Laden is still in a Pakistani prison. We promised him a reward of several millions. This should lead us to wonder: who in their right mind trusts the US government to do the right thing?
Mustang, that he is in jail is so disgusting and, you’re right, sends a terrible message.
There will be more terrible messaging tonight.
“Mustang, the whole city of Birmingham isn’t a no-go zone. That’d be like Cleveland, Ohio being a no-go zone.”
Z: I thought Cleveland WAS a no go city, like Detroit. 🙂
Bobby Jindal has a habit of stepping into a pile of crap, occasionally. I am sad that he can’t seem to keep his foot out of his mouth.
It is good that you have good friends with which to have dinner. That’s one of the most enjoyable and healing things a person can do.
I knew it…I knew the asswipe would say “Booming energy production”. I knew it…..which he HAD nothing to do with. As a matter of fact this doofus still wants to kill the XL Pipeline…which would bring us more energy and independence. We could make the Saudis’ weep…but he insisted on taking it in the can for them. Oil and energy production is on PRIVATE and State lands….NOT FEDERAL…which this toad has still placed off limits. He makes me want to puke…when I hear one syllable out of his pie hole.
Imp…I listened to a total of about 12 minutes and couldn’t believe the hubris. Apparently, “everything’s wonderful in America and would only be more wonderful if Republicans could see my vision and go along with me”…that was the unsaid word between every paragraph.
And the ‘sincerity’, the plaintive pleading in his voice tonight, just wishing the Republicans would put Americans first like he does…. You could puke? me, too
