Italian politician quits in sex scandal involving transvestite

Ooo I found this on another bloggers site today

Politics and $ex scandal, my two fav things.

Piero Marrazzo a high-profile governor stepped down on Saturday, days after four policemen were arrested for trying to blackmail him with a video purportedly showing him with a transsexual in a Rome apartment.

That certainly give another meaning to skirt-chaser!

Originally Piero, who is married with 3 daughters said it was a fake video but then changed his tune…oh dear, they all do.

It’s a personal case in which weaknesses that have to do with my private sphere have come into play,” said Marrazzo, the governor of the Lazio region, which includes Rome.

“The mistakes I have made have in no way interfered with my public activity,”

Well all I know is this guy needs to talk to Kobe’s jeweller, he has some sucking making up to do.

White House fails to exclude Fox News from Czar interview

If anyone out there voted from O-man and is not appalled at the ‘war’ on Fox News, you should be. Even f you dont watch the news station, thats fine, dont watch it, you dont have to, but I hope for educating yourself you do watch it as well as all the other news stations out there including BBC.

Because this is plain and simple, it really is attacking the first amendment, its freedom of speech. Yo umight not like what the other side has to say, but they have the right to say it….or dont make a big hoopla over someone yelling “you lie” during a speech.

The Obama administration on Thursday tried to make “pay czar” Kenneth Feinberg available for interviews to every member of the White House pool except Fox News. The pool is the five-network rotation that for decades has shared the costs and duties of daily coverage of the presidency.

But the Washington bureau chiefs of the five TV networks consulted and decided that none of their reporters would interview Feinberg unless Fox News was included.

Good!

Media analysts cheered the decision to boycott the Feinberg interview unless Fox News was included, saying the administration’s gambit was taking its feud with Fox News too far. President Obama has already declined to go on “Fox News Sunday,” even while appearing on the other Sunday shows.

Justice, not so blind?

If this is true, this is very sad.

Justice concludes black voters need Democratic Party, U.S. blocks N.C. city’s nonpartisan vote is the headline from the Washington Times

KINSTON, N.C. | Voters in this small city decided overwhelmingly last year to do away with the party affiliation of candidates in local elections, but the Obama administration recently overruled the electorate and decided that equal rights for black voters cannot be achieved without the Democratic Party.

WTF??? Thats worse than Lindsey Lohans Tan.

The Justice Department’s ruling, which affects races for City Council and mayor, went so far as to say partisan elections are needed so that black voters can elect their “candidates of choice” – identified by the department as those who are Democrats and almost exclusively black.

I think there are man things wrong with the voting system, but this is just terrible.

last time I checked voting was not mandatory in this country and nor should it be the the justice system get involved. Phish this makes the Afghan election look like its on the straight and narrow.

The department ruled that white voters in Kinston will vote for blacks only if they are Democrats and that therefore the city cannot get rid of party affiliations for local elections because that would violate black voters’ right to elect the candidates they want.

Well then geez, get a ACORN bus in there and it shoudl solve the problem.

“To begin with, ‘nonpartisan elections’ is a misconceived and deceiving statement because even though no party affiliation shows up on a ballot form, candidates still adhere to certain ideologies and people understand that, and are going to identify with who they feel has their best interest at heart,” said William Cooke, president of the Kinston/Lenoir County branch of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People.

Mr. Cooke said his group does not take a position on this issue and would not disclose his personal stance, but expressed skepticism about the Justice Department’s involvement.

Well I feel like I just woke up in the the 1940’s

Only 34 percent of Californians approve of Pelosi’s performance

And I think that is pretty darn high. I’m surprised anyone approves of her performance.

A poll released over the weekend shows that only 34 percent of Californians approve of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-Calif.) job performance, down 14 points from March

The study polled 1,005 Californians by phone from Sept. 18 to Oct. 5.

I’m wondering for those that came back ‘no-opionion’ have any idea in who she actually is and those that approved are actually her plastic $urgeons.

The budget is in, U.S is $1.42 TRILLION in debt.

The numbers are FINALLY in folks.

The Obama administration on Friday said the government ran a $1.42 trillion deficit in fiscal year 2009.

Merry Christmas kiddies

chart_deficit_03

Tax receipts for the year fell 16.6% overall, while spending soared 18.2% compared to fiscal year 2008. The causes: rising unemployment, the economic slowdown and the extraordinary measures taken by lawmakers to stem the economic meltdown that hit in fall 2008.

Consequently, the annual deficit rose 212% to the record dollar amount of $1.42 trillion, from $455 billion a year earlier.

But let me guess, this is all the previous administrations fault, forget earmarks, lobbying etc, etc

So of course the mouth peice out of the white house says:

“It was critical that we acted to bring the economy back from the brink earlier this year. As we move from rescue to recovery, the president recognizes that we need to put the nation back on a fiscally sustainable path,” said OMB director Peter Orszag in a statement. “As part of the FY2011 budget policy process, we are considering proposals to put our country back on firm fiscal footing.”

But O-man himself? I’m sure on airforce one somewhere heading to Oprahs house for dinner. NomNomNom.

Ted Kennedy is taking $20million from troops from the grave

Okay, okay the headline is perhaps a little exagerated, but 20 million is being diverted from expense accounts that pay for fuel, ammunition and training for U.S. troops, including those fighting wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, according to an analysis to pay for an educational institute named after the late Sen. Edward M. Kennedy.

Senators diverted a total of $2.6billion from these accounts to pay for certain pet projects earmarks, including Kennedy’s educational institute (sure hope they are not teaching driving lessons) is another 778 such projects and another example is a $25 million for a new World War II museum at the University of New Orleans.

Earmarks are not new in Washington and lets face it, Dems have a history of cutting funds to the troops, its what they do, but perhaps its time for this administration to stand by what they said, which was cutting back on earmarks and perhaps the one wing of the government that is hurting the most, should not have to worry about cuts for a while.

Once step further to health care and one big slide for the dollar.

a_bad_day_for_the_US_DollarWell folks, we knew it was going to happen and it did, so let me start my saying…

CONGRATULATIONS AMERICA YOU ONE STEP CLOSER TO PASSING HEATLH CARE REFORM FOR THE BONUS PRICE OF $829 BILLION DOLLARS!!!!!!!!

Ahhhh, make sure your grand kids thank you before you die, oh thats right, this thing is not goign to cost us anything is it?

Sen. Olympia Snowe, R-Maine, was the lone committee member to cross party lines, breaking with other Republicans to vote for the measure. All the committee’s Democrats supported the bill.

Which we all knew she would as she is as crazy as Brtitney Spears without her drugs

So what the next step

If the House and Senate both manage to pass health care overhaul bills, a conference committee then will negotiate a final version requiring approval from both chambers before going to O-man for his signature. Who as you could imagine when it comes to that will have the biggest hard on ego known to man.

Well folks for the time being, its off behind closed doors in Reid office for the orgy next step, all the while, the dollar is slipping to the yen and euro.

Its going to be a Merry Christmas for everyone!

Knock, Knock? Who’s there? Health Insurance

us_president_barack_obama_spending_money_for_debt_policy_speech_strategy_comic_political_cartoon_economist_funny_best_top_free_greatest1Ahhh back to the heath care battle. The dems are now scrambling behind closed doors as the Health Insurance companies with their huge pocket books are not playing nice anymore.

So once the Senate Finance Committee votes Tuesday on its health care overhaul plan, the focus will shift to the closed doors of Harry Reid’s office.

And then this is where must merge the conservative-leaning Finance Committee legislation with a more liberally drawn bill approved by the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions.

So whats the difference? The Finance Committee bill and the health committee legislation involves a government-run insurance company — the public option.

The health committee bill provides for a robust public option designed to compete head-on with insurance companies and force them to rein in costs.

Grrrreeeaaatttt…

So what are the health insurance companies doing?

They are sending a strong message that health care legislation will drive up premiums for people who already have coverage comes as a warning shot at a crucial point in the debate, and threatens President Barack Obama’s top domestic priority.

So whats the fear for the dems you say/ well back in the 90’s it was the Insurance industry that destroyed President Bill Clinton’s health care plan by fanning fears that people with coverage would wind up paying more.

McCain urges for more troops & U.S Citizen jailed in U.A.E for terror links

On the heels of McCain urging for backing of McChrystal’s suggested 40,000 troops in Afghanistan a U.S man was arrested and convicted in the U.A.E for terror ties

So where are we in this “war on terror”? No one seems to know, it seems to be a big mess and the arrests made throughout the U.S a few weeks ago, seem for some reason misplaced. We heard about them over and over again for a few days but previously we heard nothing for a few years and since those few days, we have heard nothing again. I dont know why, but something seems amiss, almost staged….ahhh perhaps its the conspiracy theory going on in my head.

How many U.S citizens do we need to worry about both fighting for the US and against the U.S? Both seem to be on the excalting rise and nethier seem to have the detail they deserve.

In the words of Sen Sen. Dianne Feinstein, head of the Senate Intelligence Committee something seems like its needs to be done “sooner, rather than later.”

O-man and the powers at be need to Focus or get some ADHD meds ASAP. But I guess fighting for the Olympics and receiving a Nobel can take your attention away, you know from the details

Want a 2 and half day work week? Become a member of Congress.

Ahhhh, remember when Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) boasted that lawmakers would work four or five days a week to bring change to America after the dems taking control of the House in 2006 and then when O-man was running for president?

Well it seems as though those days are over and congress is back in more of a hard working slackass routine.

Members usually get in sometime late on Tuesday and leave on Thursday, yet receive full tax payers dollars in their paychecks at the end of the week.

DAYM!!! How do I get that job again?

But of course, the dems are saying why should they stay when they can get the job in half tha time.

I dont know, let’s rattle off a few things, High unemployment rate, Health care bill, Financial Crisis, Afghanistan, Iraq, Low troop morale, Bailouts, Auto industry…just to name a few things.

Asked about the abbreviated workweeks, Hoyer said Tuesday: “I think you understand why we’re doing it.” He pointed to the appropriations bills stalled in the Senate, but he didn’t cast blame at senators for moving so slowly. “It takes a long time to do it,” he said.

Well, if you will excuse me, need to go chat to my boss and see if I can do the same thing…my guess is once I bring this up to him, I’ll be in the unemployment line with the rest of them tomorrow.

See you at the soup kitchen on Thanksgiving
