Shocking Breaking News: Under Gov. Walker’s reform, Wisconsin business is expanding.

Whenever I read NRA in the context of the Cain scandal, I always flash to National Rifle Association and become confused. There really should be a law against duplicate acronyms.

It appears that dancer Michelle Marshall aka “Taylor Marsh” is primarily interested in writing anything in which she can make links to promote her new Hillary Effect book. Gibberish or no, it would appear to be about surrounding her link with SEO-priming words. Not to be cynical or anything…

Rick Perry spoke up about Fast & Furious today in NY.

•Shocking breaking news — Third-grade boy in our daughter’s elementary school diagnosed last month with (what sounds to be terminal) cancer, shows not even a fraction of self-pity of OWS crowd. Bravo to the boys in his class for shaving their heads in a show of solidarity.

LukeHandCool (whose wife and the other Japanese mothers at the school led a packed room of well wishers yesterday in the origami folding of 1,000 cranes to present him. The OWS crowd usually amuses Luke, but their selfish, arrogant, self-pity makes him angry when compared to what this little boy faces. How is it that healthy young adults can convince themselves they have no hope?)

    *sigh* That is heartbreaking. I will never meet you, your child, your child’s classmate with cancer but that is something no one should endure. My prayers for his recovery.

    My wife told of me of one of my daughter’s classmates that suffered a seizure earlier today at school. CAT scans showed a mass in her brain. Good Lord…

    There are so many things that I do not understand. The suffering of a child is one that I will never comprehend.

      LukeHandCool in reply to turfmann. | November 18, 2011 at 8:58 pm

      We don’t know the boy or his parents personally, turfmann. Our daughter is two years older.

      The school sent out an email with his picture and his story. It’s just heartbreaking. Mothers who know him and his parents have filled my wife in on some of the details. It has nothing to do with politics, I know, but when I see the OWS crowd now, what used to amuse me about them now just irritates me to no end. You see a little kid like that facing true danger and hopelessness and you just want to yell at all those idiots to shut the hell up.

      Prayers headed your way, too, for your daughter’s classmate’s complete recovery!!

NY Times feels tingle going up its leg at thought of Elizabeth Warren

I guess they’re really impressed at the woman who was the intellectual foundation of the man who shot at the White House.

That tingle for Elizabeth must be getting stronger. Just yesterday (literally) it was a “Hall of Fame” induction. By this time next spring, who knows, maybe even a Nobel in anticipation of her winning her first election!

Without that tingle, even a Hall of Fame induction must wait until you’ve occupied Forbes list of richest people for a while (in the case of Harold Hamm), or had Grammy Awards, Tony Awards, etc., and been dead for 19 years (in the case of Roger Miller).

[…] (typeof(addthis_share) == "undefined"){ addthis_share = [];}When Professor William Jacobson called this to my attention, I could scarcely believe it, yet Dave Weigel has the story:So what does Hoffman think? Is Newt to […]

Is this Newt’s version of Obama’s “Fight the Smears?”

Yea, that worked so well.

“But reading Palin’s entire op-ed, all I can think of is how my assessment of her in my new book is right on (Sarah Palin was the first to benefit from the Hillary Effect). What might have happened if Palin hadn’t been seduced herself, but instead kept her fight against “crony capitalism” alive throughout the last years? ”

The Hillary Effect?

Shocking breaking News: Obama Touts Job-Creating Potential of Boeing Indonesia Deal

SAUL LOEB/AFP/Getty Images(BALI, Indonesia) — Hailing the deal as a “remarkable example” of the commercial opportunities in the Asia-Pacific region, President Obama touted a new agreement between Boeing and an Indonesian company, claiming it will create more than 100,000 jobs in the United States.

“For the last several days, I’ve been talking about how we have to make sure that we’ve got a presence in this region, that it can result directly in jobs at home. And what we see here — a multi-billion-dollar deal between Lion Air, one of the fastest-growing airlines not just in the region, but in the world, and Boeing — is going to result in over 100,000 jobs back in the United States of America, over a long period of time,” Obama said Thursday morning at a signing ceremony between the two…”
LIES,LIES,LIES are shocking, Huh?
Then there is TRUTH, TRUTH, TRUTH:
So this is why Obama kept Boeing out of S.C.

one op-ed today, I hope it is Mary O’Grady’s column in the Wall Street Journal: “Big Labor’s Yanqui Imperialism.”

On the face of it, the National Labor Relations Board’s effort to block a new Boeing plant slated for the right-to-work state of South Carolina seems like a futile exercise. After all, we live in a global economy, and that means U.S. producers who can’t access a competitive labor market at home can go abroad.

That is unless Big Labor manages to impose its stifling regulatory model beyond American borders. In that case, costs could be pushed up strategically elsewhere, and companies that might otherwise try to escape U.S. regulation would have nowhere to run.

The effort is already under way in Latin America, where countries that have signed free-trade agreements are being increasingly bullied by the Obama administration. The administration claims it is defending worker rights, but it seems more likely that it wants to use labor regulation as a back door to increase protectionism at the behest of U.S Big Labor. […]”

From the Taylor Marsh link: “This may not be Mrs. Palin’s fault, however. It’s likely that of the Wall Street Journal‘s title jockey’s who are so ignorant they don’t know that to Occupy means to confront.”

It does? Since when? And wth is that apostrophe doing in “jockey’s”?
