Your Tax Dollars at Work: Florida Agency Spends $14,000 on Superhero Capes for the Unemployed

“It’s a jobless bird… it’s an out of work plane… it’s — Super Unemployed Man!”

ORLANDO, Fla. – Florida officials are investigating an unemployment agency that spent public money to give 6,000 superhero capes to the jobless.

Workforce Central Florida spent more than $14,000 on the red capes as part of its “Cape-A-Bility Challenge” public relations campaign. The campaign featured a cartoon character, “Dr. Evil Unemployment,” who needs to be vanquished.

“Dr. Evil Unemployment” wouldn’t happen to be from Chicago and currently living in DC, would he?

Not only did taxpayers pay for the capes, but we’re paying people to think up these kinds of absolute embarrassments. What are the super-powers of Unemployed Man? The ability to leap well beyond 99 weeks in a single bound?

By the way, there actually is an “Unemployed Man,” and Florida might owe him a few dollars for swiping the idea:



Joyanna Adams Here: Sitting in for the Master of Powerful Wit…Doug Powers

Nobody’s Flashes: Louis Farrakhan, that lovable public enemy number-two, has just warned us all: “What you see happening there (Middle East) you’d better prepare, because it will be coming to your door soon.”
To which my baby tea party spirit says, “Oh yeah? “
Is it me? Didn’t that sound like a threat?
According to Louis Walcott, his real name, (sort of like President Barry, who also took a Muslim name)— Louis proclaims that whites are not civilized. (Come on…if Obama was a real Christian he would have run as Barry Soetoro.)
Farrakhan says that L. Ron Hubbard can save us, and if we hurry, we can all be as civilized as his good friend, Moo-moo Gaddhafi, or that other lovable black leader, Zimbabwe’s Robert Mugabe, or even Hitler, who by all accounts according to Louis, was a good man.
Remember the million-man marches? This nobody remembers how it was reported to be a wonderful Christian gathering for the  men to come back and be responsible for their families again. No mention back then that this guy was a die-hard Muslim/communist leader who had founded over 130 Mosques here.
THAT wasn’t on MSNBC.
Did you also know that Nation of Islam believes that white people were created from blacks 4,000 years ago on an Aegean island by a black scientist.. …ummmm…what was his name again? Caliphatitis?
Really, why is this guy NOT in jail somewhere picking bugs out of Charlie Mansion’s eyebrows because it’s on the record that he was behind Malcolm X’s assassination. Malcolm’s’ own daughter tried to kill him and was arrested.
Malcolm took the guy, trained him, and then decided that well…the Muslim religion was pretty bad stuff. Farrakhan saw an opportunity to make himself KING of the American Muslims and took it. But, that’s all history…that was before he was taken up in a UFO and enlightened about the how the Nation of Islam, hates Jews-whites-gays, and that filthy swine, Rihanna.
Snoop Dog on the other hand is great.
Our ‘President’ Obama has kept quiet on his Muslim brother..while calling the Tea Party all racists—but remember this: In 1952, President Truman started the National Day of Prayer. In 1988, President Reagan made it the first Thursday in May, In June 2007, Obama canceled the National Day of Prayer because he didn’t want to offend anybody— BUT, on September 25, 2009, the President held a National Muslim Day of Prayer next to the White House and 50,000 Muslims attended.
I know– my poor baby feet. The sand is getting real hot.
Louis now says, “The Jews want to invade Libya and start a war.”
Gee Louis…The war in Libya has already started from all reports, and the Jews weren’t exactly in the region. Maybe you should switch to Scientology and change your name to Louis Hubbard. That UFO might pick you up again…and hopefully take you somewhere far…far…away, to a more civilized planet, where you can make a movie called “Battlefield Earth, The Final Solution” starring Snoop Dog, and Moo-Moo Gaddafi. (Yes, take them with you.)
And just to show you how civilized this nobody is: on the next National Day of Prayer, I will pray for a UFO to do just exactly that. And then, we can all start concentrating on public enemy number-one.

Of Course: Texting Woman/YouTube Sensation Who Fell Into Mall Fountain Gets a Lawyer

Have you seen the video of the woman who was walking through a mall while texting and fell into a fountain (vid below). I saw it the other day and the first thing I thought of was “when’s she going to get a lawyer?”

The answer is “right now”:

All laughing aside, Marrero says she’s mortified by the incident and gets uncomfortable when talking about it.

“My issue is I don‘t think security was professional because they didn’t send anyone to check on me until 20 minutes later and I had already left,” she said Wednesday. “Instead of laughing, they should have said, ‘Is she OK?’ and been down there right away to check on me,” she said.

Since her accident, Marrero has recruited an attorney, James M. Polyak, to “conduct an investigation into what happened.”

And without a doubt her attorney’s “investigation” will determine that the mall was not at fault for his client’s stupidity.

Not only that, but she works at the mall. You think she’d know where the fountain is by now. If she wins any settlement or a court award, this will be the “hot coffee in the lap” of the texting age.

In my opinion, if she wanted some money for her stupidity, she had a chance to pick up some loose change when she was in the fountain, but blew it:

Update: If the mall is responsible for this person falling into the fountain, and if Sarah Palin is responsible for the Tucson shootings, then hey, why not blame Michelle Obama for increased pedestrian deaths? Turnabout is fair play.

Meet One of the ‘Very Smart’ Women Who Will Host CBS’s Knock-Off of ‘The View’

Brace yourself for more MSM daytime talk genius:

During Monday’s CBS Early Show, a promo ran for the network’s new daytime show, ‘The Talk,’ based on ABC’s ‘The View.’ The show features former Early Show co-host Julie Chen and five other well-known women chattering about topics of the day.

At one point in the ad, fellow host and actress Leah Remini declares of Chen: “Julie, very smart. Makes me feel stupid.”

If Chen makes Remini feel stupid, that show’s going to be quite entertaining:

She makes Rick Sanchez look like Magellan. At least Rick got the correct ocean.

26% of Americans Don’t Know Who US Declared Independence From

Too bad we can’t declare independence from a wildly failing system of public education/indoctrination (not necessarily in that order).

From the NY Daily News:

How dumb are we?

Apparently, pretty dumb.

At least according to a new Marist poll, which says 26% of people in this country don’t know that the U.S. declared its independence from Great Britain.

That includes 20% who were unsure and 6% who thought the U.S. separated from another nation.

So what country do people think the U.S. achieved its independence from?

Among the countries mentioned were France, China, Japan, Mexico and Spain.

Can you imagine somebody actually saying we declared independence from Mexico? The Obama administration is about a week away from declaring independence from Arizona in order to avoid declaring independence from Mexico.

And China? Oh, I wish.

Why am I guessing that if you broke down this poll along party lines, the vast majority of this 26% voted for Rainbows, Gumdrops & Unicorns?

Let’s close with a famous quote from Ronald Reagan: “Republicans believe every day is the Fourth of July; Democrats believe every day is April 15th.”

Happy Independence Day all!

Update: Watch this clip from Jay Leno and the above percentage will start to seem a little low — in particular I like the woman who says the US gained independence from Greece, and the college professor who thinks we won independence in… 1922:

Slick Move: Guy Swims in Gulf Oil Spill

This crude behavior is a little like swimming in a pond that Mickey Rourke was pushed into the night before, except a little less dangerous:

If Valvoline Vinny develops some sort of an illness and successfully sues BP for millions, look for “slick swimming” to really catch on.
