WONDERS WILL NEVER CEASE…..A worker who was injured during sex gets a compensation payout. It happened in her hotel room, not while she was working, hopefully. It is good that it happened in Australia and not here but in Bloomies NYC Nanny State. I could see the likelihood in outcome. ”Injury during course of employment,” so ruled Justice John Nicholas. The successful barrister argued that the woman was injured during her “course of employment.” This enlightened judge decided that had the woman been playing cards in her hotel room she would also be entitled to compensation. Apparently, the woman received facial and psychological injuries when a glass light fixture came away from the wall while she was exuberantly cavorting. Oh my.
NUGENT CANCELED AT FORT KNOX…..Popular singer Ted Nugent had his concert canceled by Fort Knox authorities because of remarks he made the previous week when speaking to the NRA Convention. Apparently he suggested we ought to ride in there and chop off some Democrat heads. This comment produced an interview with the Secret Service. (Perhaps they thought Nugent could provide them with “companionship.”) Nugent is extremely outspoken in supporting our troops, and always has been. It’s a shame he was scrubbed. Facebook and email comments since the cancellation have heavily favored Nugent.
WHY PROGLIBS CONTINUE TO SUPPORT BO….. Without any actual accomplishments to tout for President Barack Obama and with attacks on his rival, Mitt Romney, backfiring, the dwindling group of supporters of the president is starting to come up with bizarre reasons to re-election him.
Chris Matthews, the MSNBC host who used to get leg tingles thinking about Obama, suggests we should ignore the advice of Martin Luther King Jr. and judge him by the color of his skin and not the content of his character, according to Real Clear Politics.
Sen. Barbara Boxer, D-Calif., adds we should vote for the re-election of the president for the sake of the ladies, according to Breitbart.
Former Republican Gov. of Florida Charlie Crist says the president is a “centrist worthy of admiration,” as reported by Buzzfeed.
On the other hand, current Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia is reported by the Washington Post as unsure whether he will vote for the president of his own party. Meanwhile the president is facing an open revolt from his own party on the Keystone XL pipeline, according to the Washington Examiner. Rep. Barney Frank, D-Mass., who is retiring, has opined that on second thought, health care reform was not such a great idea after all, Forbes reports.
Political prognostication is a tricky business for a pundit who lacks psychic powers. But all of this seems to point toward impending doom for the president’s chances of reelection. If Obama has not done anything that merits four more years and if Romney is not convincingly the anti-Christ, what is there left?
Obama could, one suppose, put country and party above himself and do a Lyndon Johnson, announcing that he will not seek nor will he accept the nomination of his party as our president. But such a person would be an Obama from an alternate universe, someone who does not see the naked face of God in his bathroom mirror every morning when he shaves. It would be someone who realizes that the fate of the Republic rarely rests on the fate of just one person.
No, the Democrats are stuck with Barack Obama, just as the 7th Cavalry was stuck with George Armstrong Custer and the Light Brigade with Lord Cardigan. Thus, we are in the stillness before battle, the calm before the storm.

ELECTRIC CARS DEBACLE CONTINUES…..The Detroit News reports that General Motors officials say damage could hit five million dollars following an explosion last week in a battery-testing lab at its Tech Center in Warren, according to a police report. Guess they are still trying to keep cars from going up in flames in people’s driveways. It never rains but it pours. From the Washington Free Beacon, comes this:
“Electric car company Fisker Automotive has fired an additional twelve workers from its flagship plan in Delaware, leading to concerns that the once bustling car company will fail to live up to its promise to produce a new line of plug-in hybrids. According to one of the fired workers who spoke with Autoblog, Fisker’s plant is ‘absolutely empty,’ devoid of the equipment and personnel necessary to produce its hybrid cars on schedule.”
SURVEY SAYS…..Most (51%) Hispanics do not like to be categorized as “Hispanics” or “Latinos,” saying they like to be identified from their family’s country of origin; Nicaragua, Mexico, Columbia. etc. Make of this what you will: Only 21% of those polled identified themselves as “American.”
Just a parting thought. Who cares where Obama was born. The problem is where he is now living.
