FYI – Alfalfa Club Dinner, Honors Confederate General Robert E. Lee

Just thought I’d be the one to offer up the real story on this annual dinner.

The annual dinner is private, very exclusive, and is a chummy roast-a-thon among the elitist of elites.

NEWS ALERT

Jan. 30, 2009

Former Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle, President Barack Obama‘s nominee for the secretary of Health and Human Services, paid around $100,000 in back taxes after his nomination to pay for a car and driver he was supplied but did not report as income, according to documents being prepared by the Senate Finance Committee. The issue will dominate a closed-door meeting of the committee called for Monday afternoon.

————————————-   ~/~  ———————————-

I have been patient, not to jump on the media blog-o-sphere to dash any of President Obama’s choices for his cabinet, after all he is the president.  Then I thought about all the taxes I paid out over the years, with-out choice, and paid in full every year.

So how may non-law abiding citizens of these United States will be re-united in President Obama’s Cabinet…

Mr President, of the US of A. May ask you to follow suit….

President Obama, can we count on you to offer up your salary, that would be enough change for me to count on. just asking, well actually, praying you might consider this.

above is in response to the info below from the WSJ

NEWS ALERT

Starbucks will close another 300 stores and cut nearly 7,000 workers .
Starbucks
CEO Howard Schultz asked the company’s board of directors last week to reduce his annual base salary to $10,000, from $1.2 million, a move the board approved, according to a company spokesperson. Once his health-care coverage costs are deducted from his salary, Schultz will earn less than $4 a month.

only in America… can you break the law and still become the Treasurer of the united states…

only in America… can you break the law ans still become the Treasurer of the united states… you know the person who signature is on the currency we are so lacking in.  So does this mean if you are a tax paper in the US, that we are all forgiven, can we all ignore our late fees and the notices that pile up in the file 13 basket.

And that brings me to Pres. Obama view of compromise, you know, like the time he voted for fisa, instead of standing tall on his views and what is really good for our nation.  Chew on that you folks at MSNBC, CNN, CNBC and HLN… and the folks who watch these networks.

ps. if the wall street journal was less per isue that the local papers in our towns, I think that the public at large would not put up with this on going romance between Pres. Obama and his dream teams wish list fulfillment.

in response to – Brad Conway, the attorney representing the family of Caylee Anthony, when he went ON THE RECORD last night 1.23.2009

Who are we to judge why George did what he did.  I do feel the same as Mr. Conway, that this was a real, if they hadn’t been pro-active, George would be today another part of this tragic story, that we all should remember is REAL Life,  not just a story.

with that said, I ask that the media, the public at large and the blogosphere, take all of the family’s plight in to consideration before writing non-fact base words on paper, the web and even to be read by news/media outlet anchors. …as Joe Friday use to say…Just the facts please.

The media, mostly to the fault of the public, is hand feeding us this story, hour by hour, via news13, and other local Orlando stations, the cable news picks up the story, as if it is their own and adds their twist.

If anyone wants to place blame on a single media outlet, I ask you follow up with some reading on Nancy Grace, remember Melinda Duckett, her viewer said Ms. Duckett killed herself because she was guilty. Does Nancy Grace realize the power she has when she offers her version of a story.  She is not  a judge, or the jury, she is not even a DA anymore. NANCY GRACE is holding the largest spoon in the media forum regarding this story. she has had her own career in the prosecutors office under suspicion.  So before you throw out the next Storm Ms. Grace, you might want to remove that stone from your own eye.

as for Greta, I fine her the most fair in this actual story.  Greta has always allowed her panel of guest to speak with out interruption, she always place disclaimer, such as ” a person is innocent until proving otherwise…”

I am not stating this as a fan of Greta, but as another blogger who reads a lot of blogs on the web, and found that this one does allow both views. maybe more people need to look into themselves and draw from their own compassion , before typing that first sentence that usually on this topic, offers words of hate and disdain for the Anthony’s as a whole.

responding to -by Greta Van Susteren “Ugh! The flub that keeps on growing!”

I think that the issue was brought forward to actually be done again, than it should have at least being taped and then offered up at a press conference later. Pres. Obama, did drop by the press room today, maybe he should have done this Yesterday too.
 
It seems that the Physical transition of Mr Bush leaving the white house went with-out loosing the “Os” on the keyboards, but I think that the departing Bush staff know there would be a lot of “Os” no’s going on in the first 100 days.
 
as for the Executive Orders signed, well if the first Oath was not Official, then anything thereafter is not, fruit from the forbidden tree, just as evidence from an illegal search is usually denied. the Executive Orders were executed under an illegal oath of office given by the Judge presiding.

What I heard today was a good old fashion scolding

at what point will people like Chris Matthews, stop waving the race banner. Alright already, so your black, so your president,  can we now see the real news.

It’s  so weird to see the African American guests on these talk shows, and all of them are saying what the Anchor wants to hear, but for every time a Chris, or Keith and even Rachel,  say “this must be a great day for the American people, that Black Americans have a role model now, etc., “So what your saying the men and woman who sit before you, of African American descent, are not role models,  have not achieved the American dream?

Get a life Mr. Matthews [I guess I am expecting too much from some one who has had 43 male role models, and countless of unnamed men who carry out their dreams, such as Sen. Ted Kennedy. I honestly think the only person in my America that could not achieve the American dream, is the person who does not apply themselves unselfishly.

May I remind all you, the media and readers, that there are past and present African Americans whom have offer themselves to service to there country [Colin Powell, Jesse Jackson and Condoleezza Rice].

Whether you are first, last or in between, a persons Ascension to success in America will not  be, based on their race. It will be measured by their deeds and service to their families and if the situation warrants it, to their country.

How many days until the media drops “the First Affican American”… are we not all AMERICANS period.

I do realize the importance of this day. I just wonder if anyone realizes that every time some one praises our nation in harmonies chorus, that we are proud to have elected and placed in power the first African American President, that we are also admitting how bias our country has been as recent as 11:59 am today.

I also want to bring forward that at 12:01 pm nothing has changed on the streets of Harlem, the Bronx, Riverside, south bay and chitown [chicago], that unless each person of all ethic backgrounds take a similar oath,  these as like many neighbors ridden with bias based plight, will not change.

We can not assume or make President Obama responsible to everyone,  he is only accountable to us, up to which we should rise up, and meet him in the middle.

He is not the first to offer U[nited] S[tates], A[merica] a chance for change, but he seems ..

…to be the most palatable.

I hope to see one interview today that offers me a view of the day with out the words that describe, race and offers me words to describe all of us.

How can the media say that the young African Americans NOW have a role model. May I remind everyone (including the media), of Rosa Parks, Martin Luther King, Nelson Mandela, Colin Powell, Jesse Jackson, and many others who, because of the same media blinded by Mr. Obama’s word (with a new spin),  Have been offering the same ideas and dreams to all of us. Is it because he’s more GQ’ than the above stated, that the media has been taken in by this romance. I hope note because a divorce between the media and a public figure is usually not pretty. let’s pray for Rain.

….So call me crazy, insensitive, or even out right mean, but lets get real here. Barack Obama,  is a Rainmaker, …. I am dedicating this song to Mr. Obama.  I think He is very capable of taking this Nation into [another] cold war status, But please stop making him out to God, because he is not my god. he is [will be], my president.

 

You came riding in on the sunrise
On a hot west Texas day
With a fancy man in a painted wagon
With some fancy things to say
Looks like you folks need some water
Well water is my game
And for the small price of $100.00
I bet you I could make it rain

Step back non-believers
Or the rain will never come
Someone start that fire burning
Somebody beat the drum
He said some may think I’m crazy
For making all these claims
But I swear before this day is over
You folks are gonna see some rain

They all just stood there staring
Trying to believe
But there was one named Lizzy Cooper
Who said he was a lying cheat
She said you call yourself the Rainman
Well you ought to be ashamed
Starting all these people dreaming
Thinking you can make it rain

Step back non-believers
Or the rain will never come
Someone keep that fire burning
Somebody beat the drum
He said some may think I’m crazy
For making all these claims
But I swear before this day is over
You folks are gonna see some rain

Hey Lizzy
Well a man’s gotta have a dream
And if you can’t walk on the inside with me
I’ll meet you in between
Oh come with me Lizzy
And the stars will write your name
And if you still think I’m lying to you
Look yonder there comes the rain

Step back non-believers
Or the rain will never come
Someone keep that fire burning
Somebody beat the drum…

[tanya tucker]
