Israel’s Benjamin Netanyahu is in the U.S. this week, and he wanted to meet with President Obama, but you know how busy the life of a president can be:

null

President Obama has his priorities:

null

Obama did still have a meeting with Egypt’s new Islamist president scheduled this week, but that’s been quietly canceled. I wonder why…

Also, Obama won’t meet with any of the leaders attending the U.N. meetings this week. This all probably has something to do with the old saying “Keep your enemies close and your friends really far away if it’s an election year.”

    "Despite critical 2011 support from Obama for the revolt that removed Hosni Mubarak, Morsi is now demanding restrictions on U.S. free speech that is critical of Islam, demanding more U.S. support for the anti-Israeli Islamist governments in Gaza and the West Bank, and more financial aid to help the cash-strapped Egyptian government buy food and fuel for its population of 82 million people."

    Pay up suckah! OMG, this is so laughable. If you can leave the violence it's created out of it for just a moment, that is really really funny.

    "Also, Obama won’t meet with any of the leaders attending the U.N. meetings this week. "

    They can't help Obama regain his "rock star" image; therefore they are useless.

    Great point. Unless you're bringin' the chicks AND the 'Panty Droppers' ( don't bother )

    Found it, an application of poetic justice that ultra-lib Green Day's singer is going into a full blown meltdown. In '03 ( when Bush Bashing graduated from cottage industry to its own economic 'sector' ) they released American Idiot.

    NOW who's the 'idiot'? Your choice of words Billy Joe, not ours. I find it symbolic for the hard Left's debacle. Life was just so much EASIER when all you had to do to get l@id/PAID was bash Bush. And/or Conservatives, people you've never MET and know nothing about.

    This having to chose/think thing is so haaaard.

  4. Truesoldier__ on September 24th, 2012 5:05 pm

    Speaking of bashing Bush to get l@id/paid, I saw recently that Devo (yes that one hit wonder) is trying to make a comeback by bashing Romney using the Shamus the dog story. The song is called "Don't roof rack me bro".

    Also, the Weid Al parody of 'American Idiot' (Canadian Idiot) is a whole lot better and funny as hell.

  5. Truesoldier__ on September 24th, 2012 5:07 pm

    Not sure if you heard the audio of the Congressional hearing questioning one of the dopes at DoJ regarding Islamists desire to limit our free speech and the reports that the DoJ was considering how they could make some agreement with them.

    The DoJ puke was tappdancing up a storm trying to avoid the question. Bottom line, he never denied that they were looking into it.

  6. Marshall_Will on September 24th, 2012 5:27 pm

    You had to know, that one line "One nation controlled by the media" would come back and bite them in the azz every bit as much as Townshend's "Hope I die before I get old".

    Yes, (1) network and a small army of Conservative just-a-bloggers are 'controlling' everyone. In the face of the sprawling/taxpayer funded Dem. media-complex. Got it.

    Loved Canadian Idiot! Why hadn't I heard of it before? Always shocking to me to hear people today say that Devo was an 'influence' on them? Really? Not to nitpick but if you count Workin' In a Coal mine that's 1 1/2 hits. Someone else wrote it.

    The good news is that they will be able to get 18,000 people on the set of The View, and a Trillion* viewers, according to press reports…

    http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Journalism/2012/09/2

    *A Trillion, counting all of the DVR playbacks and number of times that the LSM will watch it over again.

  8. Truesoldier__ on September 24th, 2012 5:40 pm

    LOL..yeah that really did come back to bite Townsend in a big way.

    As for the just-a-bloggers overcoming the lib media, it really is simple. Human beings crave the truth. They instictively know they are being lied to and recoil from it while searching out the truth. One more reason the MSM is on its sunset tour.

    It always amazes me at how many 'bands' have their material written by others and call it their success.

  9. Marshall_Will on September 24th, 2012 5:55 pm

    Oh yeah, everyone has stepped up to the plate with incredible energy, charm and wit. The growth in Conservative blogging has been, breath taking. Everyone pitches in.

    Truth is though, in '03 when that album came out, blogging was very fledgling. People were just getting started. Mostly personal interest type stuff in the early days.

    Yeah, Coal Mine was written in the mid-60's and bands go back in and pilfer material they deem so old, none of their current fans are old enough to realize it's a ripoff. In ways, I do it too.

    My focus is a little different, rather than find stuff that was popular, but happens to be old, I see my mission as dredging up the material was NEVER popular, but really really SHOULD have been!

  10. Marshall_Will on September 24th, 2012 6:06 pm

    "Both outlets described the location of the rally as a "park," without revealing the name of the arena itself, which would have given the game away."

    Just when you think they can't outdo themselves..? Sheesh, truly pathetic.

  11. Truesoldier__ on September 24th, 2012 6:17 pm

    Sounds like a solid mission. There is plenty of material that was from those who never were that should have been.

    I really miss seeing bands in the late 80's to mid 90's in the clubs in the bay area. Those were some of the best of times. Getting to see some really talented people either before they made it big or those that never it made it for one reason or another.

  12. Truesoldier__ on September 24th, 2012 6:20 pm

    And as the O administrations version of Benghazi crumbles, so does the tempers at the State Dept:

    Somebody turned me on to "Extreme" that enjoyed a fair amt. of popularity in that era. I heard them described as "Funky Metal". Absolute mother lode of largely unkown material.

    It really was a last chance, cross-over window. Now we've done an almost full regression back to manufactured, churned out 'vocalists' where the 'band' is essentially disposable session guys. Shania, Celine, Taylor, Amy Winehou… well you get the idea!

    My favorite is casting for, the road not taken I suppose. Evolutionary dead ends that needn't be. A good example might be Pat Travers: Heat In The Street. Great stuff, it just missed its window, and was left to die.

    The dufus and his female don’t even seem to want to win another election. They’re showing that they also don’t give a damn about world events.

    Zero’s female goes out last week and rages about slavery again. They refuse to let the wound heal and keep picking, picking, and picking at the scab even four generations removed from the actual events. Out of the heart speaks the mouth.

    It looks like all Zero and his female are counting on for victory is the black/white struggle and so continue to foment any anger and try to draw in any and all white guilt liberals, indoctrinated kids from liberal higher education campuses, and the 47% (?) for votes.

    Couple this with the response to the CNN reporter by Clinton’s limp-wristed aid and it shows we’ve got a Central African or South American, Penn-supported, Chavez-esque narco government that’s out of control with liberals who believe they owe nothing to nobody.

    The narco, in this case, being government freebies.

  15. Marshall_Will on September 24th, 2012 7:07 pm

    Good points. It's almost; "If we can't 'win' this thing off sheer media bias in layup fashion, well then We.Don't.Want.It!" You don't really expect me to win this off policies ( a passed budget ) and actual l-e-a-d-e-r-s-h-i-p do you!

    I've suggested ways to consolidate OUR 47% by providing real incentives for younger self-employed people. Like perhaps a "matching" plan or Vesting Schedule for people that run their own businesses. IF… you put $5 grand into your IRA, we will match it w/ a grand. BUT you have to keep that business operational for 7 years at which it converts to..?

  16. jeffythequick on September 24th, 2012 7:20 pm

    it converts to a bailout for all those businesses that failed.

    because it's not fair that those that save have money, and those that didn't don't.

    The grasshoppers are demanding that the ants feed them.

  17. Truesoldier__ on September 24th, 2012 7:44 pm

    I remember Extreme. Great band.

  19. Granny55 on September 24th, 2012 9:41 pm

    I am sure the "ladies" of the view had to double up on their pantie liners/depends underwear to make it thru the interview – if Chris Mathews gets tingles – you can only imagine what these broads are "emoting" while sitting next to DuH One.

  20. Marshall_Will on September 25th, 2012 11:53 am

    Jeff,

    That's why I'd implement a vesting schedule up front. In "cliff vesting" structure vice graduated. If you're not DOING anything w/ your biz ( and it really is just a shell ) then I guess there won't be anything going IN to it!

    State employment long held the promise of early and often unsustainable ret. plans. Just last week we learned the avg. teacher in Chicago will get $70k a year in retirement.

    It's almost impossible for the pvt. sector to compete with that! As in, 'who' are the 1%'er's again? Mine, is not a perfect plan, but it never will be if we're unwilling to even brainstorm.

  21. Marshall_Will on September 25th, 2012 11:56 am

    I'm always surprised at just how many other listeners are familiar w/ them while I seemed to miss the boat entirely?

    Back then I was on deployment regularly so it explains some of it. The other factor was so many players at the time were rediscovering the Blues thru Stevie Ray Vaughn, and really tuned out everything else. IMHO

  22. jeffythequick on September 25th, 2012 12:09 pm

    M_W,

    I didn't mean to cut your plan down, in fact, I like it! The thing is, I have a fundamental distrust of those in power to do the right thing and leave the private sector alone.

    That distrust extends to these types of programs, and I am worried that those in power will see this as another "tax cut for the rich!" and then raid it to buy votes from help the poor.

    Again, I'm sorry that I came off and was flippant, and you're right. We need to brainstorm. Then implement.

  23. jeffythequick on September 25th, 2012 12:11 pm

    You mean, Chris Matthews isn't on the view anymore?

    Who replaced her?

  24. Marshall_Will on September 25th, 2012 12:53 pm

    Jeff,

    Probably one of the 'nicer' responses I've gotten. One of the main drivers that KEEP people in the W-2 side of employment is.., the spouse is concerned about the lack of benefits that come w/ the freedom of self-employment. It's understandable.

    Now we've made a MESS of HC benefits, that's more or less off the table anyway. We'll get catastrophic policies and pay out of pocket. Hell, many of us are at the threshold NOW.

    There's "gives" we could offer up like Sect. 179 ( where a dentist can buy a brand new SUV and accelerate depreciation ) so he can drive the 4 blocks to the clinic?

  25. backwoodsconsr on September 25th, 2012 2:35 pm

    Well played.

  26. Granny55 on September 25th, 2012 8:57 pm

    Doug – I am flagged on your site again and I didn't say anything nasty. My post on your newest story has been flagged.

  27. SignPainterGuy on September 25th, 2012 9:55 pm

    You shouldn`t have mentioned taking food up north; now Doug`s notoriously hungry moderator / administrator / monster thingy is getting even ! ;-)

  28. backwoodsconsr on September 25th, 2012 10:13 pm

    The moderator thingy is of the same genus as Wile E. Coyote–Eatus Anythingus.
