Hawaii to Obama, “Stop talking down business travel, you’re killin’ us!”
Corporations that took or were forced to take taxpayer bailout funds should not be taking business trips to Las Vegas so said Barack Hussein Obama recently. Vegas Mayor Oscar Goodman promptly shot back, ““The assumption that all meetings, events, and incentive travel (to Las Vegas) are wasteful is wrong, now more than ever, we need businesses to travel and hold meetings and events. There’s no question that we’re feeling the impact of it [Obama’s comments] today, and as far as living in Las Vegas, this has a debilitating effect on our economy,” Meanwhile Hawaii estimates it’s economic loss due to companies canceling trips for meetings and conventions at nearly $60 million with an overall impact on the state’s economy approaching $100 million. Businesses fear a White House backlash if they were to schedule events on the islands due to this type of activity being viewed and labeled as “excessive” by the Obama administration. Nice job Obama, driving our economy into the ground seems to be going according to plan.

Stolen American Stinger missiles bite Hamas thugs in the ass.
Hamas, the “legitimate government” of the Palestinians was able to get their hands on some American made Stinger surface to air missile systems only to find they couldn’t use them against aircraft friendly to the U.S. These missiles have an embedded ID system that will not allow them to fire on American of allied aircraft rendering them basically useless to these knuckleheads. Not to be deterred and just to make sure they wouldn’t work as intended one of the Hamas donks did manage to fire one of these things at an Israeli helicopter only to have it reject the target and immediately zero in on a group of his buddies. This guy sounds like a perfect candidate for Obama’s cabinet if ya ask me.

Canada introduces legislation that may result in abolishment of gun control in that country.
Hey it’s probably going to be a tough sell in that socialist country but legislation has been introduced to abolish the Canadian long gun registry. Calling the registry “…totally inefficient and ineffective against crime,” Public Safety Minister Peter Van Loan went on to say the registry does not work and is simply a waste of resources. The proposed legislation would bring and end to the registration of rifles and shotguns as well as loosening the strict controls on fully automatic machine guns. Naturally the anti guns groups are wigging out claiming this bill is the end of gun control in the country. What is amazing to me is their misguided and disingenuous argument that because a weapon is registered it will not be used in the commission of a crime. If someone is absolutely determined to cause havoc, laws and registration requirements certainly mean nothing to them as this country has learned over the last several weeks.

Launching rockets into space is going to kill us all! I guess someone needs to go tell those nutty North Koreans huh?
The quickest way to get your name in the news? Be sure you are employed by a university as a professor of atmospheric and oceanic sciences then come up with a seriously whack but as yet unmentioned threat to our very survival as a species. This is what Darin Toohey, a professor at the University of Colorado at Boulder, has done by proclaiming that rocket launches are the latest threats to the earth’s ozone layer. This revelation will no doubt provide the green weenies around the world something else to get all twisted up over causing untold amounts of teeth gnashing, hand wringing and sleepless nights among them. That said I wonder who is gonna go tell Kim Jong Il to chill out with all his rocket launching shenanigans?

Obama selects yet another stark raving lunatic for his administration.
Obama has chosen abortion rights attorney Dawn Johnsen to head the Office of Legal Counsel. Some of this woman’s radical views concerning abortion go something like this: “Abortion restrictions ‘reduce pregnant women to no more than fetal containers.” “The argument that women who become pregnant have in some sense consented to the pregnancy belies reality… and others who are the inevitable losers in the contraceptive lottery no more ‘consent’ to pregnancy than pedestrians ‘consent’ to being struck by drunk drivers.” “The experience [of abortion] is no longer traumatic; the response of most women to the experience is relief.” This whack job has also compared pregnancy to slavery and claims that mothers are ‘losers in the contraceptive lottery.’ Isn’t it funny how when the Democrats are in the minority they always yell and scream and stomp their feet demanding the Republican president appoint people to his administration that are mainstream and reflect the values of all Americans? Yet we continue to see Obama chose the most radical left wing loons he can and the Congressional Republicans just let them sail on through confirmation.
