Obama Campaign Priorities, $10 K On Nail Polish

Seems the priority for the upcoming election would be to find ways to get people back to work, lower gasoline prices and reduce the debt! Wait, nail polish seems to be more important.

Obama’s $10,000 nail polish buy
The Obama campaign‘s latest campaign finance report for one of their high-dollar joint DNC account, shows that Chicago has spent about $10,000 in February alone on nail polish designed by Richard Blanch Of Le Métier De Beauté. The campaign is, in turn, selling the nail polish in a three bottle set along with a collectable bag to supporters for $40 dollars.

The nail polish swag first debuted as part of a fashion-focused “Runway to Win” event in New York City in February.

Plant Flowers And Get A $6000 Fine

Has the world gone absolutely mad!

NH Woman Sued For Planting Flowers In Her Front Yard

PORTSMOUTH, N.H. (CBS) – Kimberly Bois’ tiny front yard garden isn’t much to look at right now. But in a few weeks, it’ll be in full bloom, and every blossom will cost her dearly.

Even though she says her builder gave her permission to do a little planting, the current condo board now says she’s in violation.

They’re charging the Portsmouth, New Hampshire homeowner $50 a day for being so petal pushy. That fine has reached close to $6,000, plus the board’s legal fees.

“It’s just not a happy place to live anymore for me,” says Bois, who planted the small flower bed with the help of her mother, who has since passed away.

She says, “It just feels like we’ve been bullied and really all we wanted to do was have a conversation to figure out how this can benefit all of us.”

Ryan Plan, Democrats Stonewalling

So we have a plan to discuss and hopefully save this country.

House GOP unveil election-year budget blueprint cutting $5.3T beyond Obama plan
By Associated Press, Updated: Tuesday, March 20, 10:52 AM

WASHINGTON — Conservative House Republicans on Tuesday set up what appears to be a potential re-run of last year’s turbulent domestic policy fight with President Barack Obama, putting forward an election-year budget manifesto that would blend steep social program cuts with reduced tax rates.
“If you want to save Medicare and keep it from going bankrupt, you must reform the program, and that’s what we intend to do,” countered Ryan, R-Wis.s

So where is the plan from the  democrats? Seems the dem senate hasn’t put out a budget in over three years. Who is trying and who is stonewalling the economy?

Guest Op-Ed: Union Passion Killing Wisconsin Jobs

By Owen B. Robinson
Some, not all, want a better Wisconsin

The political environment in Wisconsin has been heated since Gov. Scott Walker took office largely because of the tantrum that the public employee unions have been throwing over Act 10, which modified the rules under which public employees unionize. It would be nice to think that those public employee unions had been acting for what they perceived to be the best interests of Wisconsinites, but their own statements disabuse such notions and reveal a cynical cabal interested in only their own greedy ends.

The maniacal jihad being waged against Gov. Walker by the public employee unions is also creating discord with the private unions. In order to prevent the Republicans and Gov. Walker from having any political victory, even at the expense of Wisconsin’s best interests, the public employee unions pushed hard against the approval of an expedited permitting process to lure mining into the state. While it may seem that public employees have very little interest in a private enterprise like mining, they went to the mat for no other reason than to keep Gov. Walker from helping to create jobs before the recall election.

The problem is that many of those mining jobs would likely have gone to good, hardworking, union folks who dig in the dirt for a living instead of pushing pencils in Madison. It’s easy for a tenured teacher with a pension to carp against the semantics of mining, but it’s a different story for an unemployed Teamster who drives a loader for a living.

Wisconsin: Jauch, Schultz Get Recalled

Jauch, Schultz face recall over mine vote
1:22 AM, Mar. 20, 2012

MADISON — Conservatives have launched recall efforts against two state senators who opposed a bill that would have helped a Florida company open a huge iron mine in Wisconsin‘s northwoods, saying the duo cost the state jobs.

Shirl LaBarre of Hayward filed paperwork Monday with the state Government Accountability Board authorizing her to start collecting recall signatures against Sen. Bob Jauch, D-Poplar. Dan Curran of Dodgeville filed papers with the board authorizing him to create a committee to explore recalling Sen. Dale Schultz, R-Richland Center. Both LaBarre and Curran are affiliated with the Citizens For Responsible Government Network, which works to elect conservative candidates.

Will President Obama Make Te Call

Seems Bristol Palin has some good points how our president and liberals play politics with some Americans and not with others.

Mr. President, When Should I Expect Your Call?
Posted on March 18, 2012 by Bristol Palin

Dear President Obama,

You don’t know my telephone number, but I hope your staff is busy trying to find it. Ever since you called Sandra Fluke after Rush Limbaugh called her a slut, I figured I might be next. You explained to reporters you called her because you were thinking of your two daughters, Malia and Sasha. After all, you didn’t want them to think it was okay for men to treat them that way:

“One of the things I want them to do as they get older is engage in issues they care about, even ones I may not agree with them on,” you said. “I want them to be able to speak their mind in a civil and thoughtful way. And I don’t want them attacked or called horrible names because they’re being good citizens.”

And I totally agree your kids should be able to speak their minds and engage the culture. I look forward to seeing what good things Malia and Sasha end up doing with their lives.

But here’s why I’m a little surprised my phone hasn’t rung. Your $1,000,000 donor Bill Maher has said reprehensible things about my family. He’s made fun of my brother because of his Down’s Syndrome. He’s said I was “f—-d so hard a baby fell out.” (In a classy move, he did this while his producers put up the cover of my book, which tells about the forgiveness and redemption I’ve found in God after my past – very public — mistakes.)

Lutheran High School(Sheboygan) visits Solidarity Sing Along
MARCH 16, 2012 by LESLIE AMSTERDAM

The students, parents and supporters were all in town to participate in the WIAA Boy’s High School Basketball Tournament and arrived at the Capitol for a celebratory rally and to have their photo taken with their legislators. A small group of singers was located on the ground floor of the rotunda for their weekly Thursday afternoon song circle which was quickly drowned out by the thunderous cheers of the LHS group. Shouts of “LHS” and “Stand with Walker” thundered through the rotunda and was met with wide approval from the LHS supporters. One student entered the circle to mock and taunt the singers with dance moves. The extremely loud and boisterous encounter could be heard in the Assembly chambers, where legislative business was still being conducted.

Bobby Knight Couldn’t Say That “K” Word

So some in the media have their undies in a bundle about Bobby Knight. Seems kind of funny. Read on.

Bob Knight refused to say ‘Kentucky’ this weekend
By Chris Chase

Bob Knight refused to say “Kentucky” during weekend segments on ESPN, drawing criticism from media critics who believe Knight’s actions harm college basketball and warrant a full independent investigation.

Relax, everybody.

The former Indiana coach referred to top-seeded Kentucky as that “team from the SEC” while avoiding uttering the proper name of the school on Saturday. Knight has never hid his disdain for the Wildcats or his antipathy toward coach John Calipari.
ESPN refused to comment on the situation.

It doesn’t matter what his motives are either. Whether he didn’t say “Kentucky” because he thinks Calipari is slimy or because Brent Musburger bet him $2,500 that he could go a whole segment without saying it is irrelevant. Knight speaks his mind. There isn’t a phony bone in his body. We need more of that of in sports media.

I don’t want to live in a sanitized sports world where everyone minds their Ps and Qs and adheres to Bristol’s undoubtedly huge book of rules and regulations. I like that Bob Knight is out there ripping John Calipari. When you watch Kentucky play on CBS this weekend, Calipari’s vacated titles and shady recruiting practices will be glossed over. That’s a far more egregious journalistic sin.

Keep doing your thing, Bob Knight. He can get a little too negative at points, but he’s a refreshing voice that makes you smarter about the game you’re watching. He’s worth listening to. The next time 99 percent of college basketball analysts do something interesting on ESPN, it will be the first.

It’s getting to the point ESPN seems to talk out of both sides of their mouths. ESPN, drop it, let it go! I think it’s funny.
