How To Make A Million (Actually 2)

By now we have all heard the story of the firing of the NPR commentator, Juan Williams….just in case you have been in a coma for a couple of days……well a whole magilla has rose up over some comments that the normally liberal pundit had to say on an appearance on FOX News:

NPR is facing sharp criticism for terminating the contract of news analyst Juan Williams.

Williams was fired Wednesday for violating NPR’s ethics policy over comments he made on Fox News about Muslims.

But those comments — and NPR’s response — have prompted questions about where the boundaries are drawn for journalists these days.

Williams appeared Thursday night on The O’Reilly Factor, the same Fox program where he made the initial comments that seeing fellow airline passengers dressed in Muslim garb makes him nervous.

When the news broke…my first impression was……when will he get his FOX contract now that he has found a way to get out of the one he was serving with NPR….the media has been all over NPR for his firing….it has made good fodder for the normally boring news programs…..was it racism?  Was it fear mongering?  Was it…..on and on…..well my first impression was the most accurate…..and in two days I had my answer….

Williams is now enjoying the full embrace of Fox News, which has given him a new three-year, $2 million contract and a guest slot, Friday night, as host of The O’Reilly Factor.

All this crap is just too damn predictable!  Williams is trying to capitalize on the mad money that flies around the people on FOX….he has done and will keep doing whatever it takes to get his slice of that pie…….

UpDate:  God I love being right…..it feels semi-orgasmic…….told you so about Willimas

Former NPR new analyst Juan Williams joined the call in a Fox News appearance today to defund NPR in the wake of his firing, saying “if they want to compete in the marketplace, they should compete in the marketplace. They don’t need public funds.”

Williams continued that NPR tries “to make it out like, ‘you know what? We are a public jewel and we need the protection of the federal government,'” but that’s “nonsense. They are on the federal dole is what it is. And they better admit it and step up. If they want to compete.”

This guy is quickly becoming a media whore like the rest of the pundits on the tube……it is NOT about integrity….but rather chasing the God of the media….the dollar bill….

Sharia Law Cometh

From the VOMITORIUM

I recently wrote about the possibility that birth control pills could be illegal in Colorado if a certain ballot initiative passes on November 2…….and we have seen that the Arizona law did a lot stopping just in time before they made it illegal to be Hispanic….I am sure that there are other referendums that the voter will be asked to decide on election….but this one has me stumped…..

The newest lunatic suggestion is beyond idiotic….I realize that Americans quake in the shoes when they hear the word Muslim….but PLEASE!

From the halls of the political system in Oklahoma an initiative for the people to decide…..sate question #755…..

This measure amends the State Constitution. It changes a section that deals with the courts of this state. It would amend Article 7, Section 1. It makes courts rely on federal and state law when deciding cases. It forbids courts from considering or using international law. It forbids courts from considering or using Sharia Law.

Forbids the use of Sharia Law……is this a big problem here in the US?  Are judges making rulings based on Sharia Law instead of the Constitution?

Do any of you slow thinking people even know what Sharia Law is?  Let me help a bit……

  • Sharia Law is described as “a religious code for living, in the same way that the Bible offers a moral system for Christians.”
  • Sharia Law cites “Haram” offenses that carry punishments for those who commit them.
  • Offenses include pre-marital sex, adulter, alcohol intake, theft, robbery, etc.
  • Sharia Law has been adopted across various countries.
  • Sharia Law is intended to be applied to only Muslims.

The key for you mental midgets is the last point in the series….the Law is intended to apply to Muslims ONLY…….therefore it is virtually impossible for it to be applied to anything in the US…..Let me know if you have a problem understand that complexity….

Are these people slow or just plain stupid?  I realize that they are afraid of their own shadow when it comes to anything Muslim…..but really…..give this kind of waste of time and effort a rest…..

Winning Through Intimidation

Do you remember back in the day, about 2 years ago, when some members of the new Black Panther Party was said to be intimidating voters during the voting process and FOX News was all over it…..explaining just how violent these members were talking….the new Black Panter Party has a membership of about 5 people….a real force to be feared…or maube it was because they were African-American and we know how FOX feels about anyone with brown skin, huh?

Well it seems that the Black Panthers are not the only ones trying to intimidate voters….this happened in Houston during early voting for the mid-terms:

A Tea Party group called the King Street Patriots has been accused of “1960s style” voter intimidation in primarily minority precincts on the first day of early voting in Texas. The group is being sued by the Texas Democratic Party, following the filing of 14 voter intimidation complaints with the county clerk, and another two dozen with the Texas Democratic Party chairman.

The complaints, he said, came from Kashmere Gardens, Moody Park, Sunnyside and other predominantly minority neighborhoods. The complaints included poll watchers “hovering over” voters, “getting into election workers’ faces” and blocking or disrupting lines of voters waiting to cast their ballots.

“Keep in mind these are allegations of voter intimidation,” O’Rourke said. “It’s sometimes in the eye of the beholder.”

I watched FOX News as often as I could yesterday and today and so far I have heard NOTHING about this incident……nothing like the outrage they felt when the Panthers were accused of the same tactics…..
