NHO WHAI!!!!!!!

Yes whai, and if you thought not you’d better go check out this article and then go look up Jeremiah Wright, and Jim Wallis.

Aw, come on! Is that all you got?! >

Big whoop, Andy Stearn is likely going to resign soon.  The only thing that is going to change is the desk nameplate.  He’s not going to be stopped at the White House gates, AAMOF I’m fairly certain he’s giving up the cushy union president job for something INSIDE 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.  And something less than 3 doors down from the Oval Office.

That or he’s going to join his buddy Van Jones over at the Soros Institute for Fundamentally Transforming America (into something that 76% of us DO NOT WANT), aka the Center for American Progress (no, I absolutely REFUSE to provide a link to that place so you’re just going to have to get there on your own).  Progress, my fat, white arse.  Turning MY America into a socialist democracy ain’t “progress” no matter how you measure it.

Cronyism…alive and well inside the federal government for the next 3 years.  Or less, we can hope.

With the TSA doing this, I think it safe to say that we are no longer a nation of free citizens.

The question is, what can we, or what should we do about it? I am a big believer in limited government, and in my view, the safety and security of airline passengers is the responsibility of the airlines themselves, not some boated and ineffective Federal bureaucracy.

The Department of That’s Gratitude For Ya™ earns its pay for the week by bringing us this little nugget about the biggest fucking ingrates on the planet.

The White House objected Thursday to U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon’s description of the United States as a “deadbeat” donor to the world body.

Ban used the phrase Wednesday during a private meeting with lawmakers at the Capitol, one day after he met with President Barack Obama in the Oval Office.

Only one day after meeting with the Ayatollah, He Whose First Ho’ Is Only Now Proud Of The US™

Give the Head Gook™ mad props for being a quick study, if nothing else.

White House press secretary Robert Gibbs said Ban’s “word choice was unfortunate,” given that the U.S. is the largest contributor to the United Nations.

The United States pays 22 percent of the organization’s nearly $5 billion operating budget but is perennially late paying its dues.

Hmf.  They’re damned lucky we pay Penny One™ of any  of that, period.

On the other hand, just as a f’rinstance – they don’t have to pay parking tickets – and they’re notoriously piss-poor drivers.  One wonders how many third-world economies could be funded just by the Useless Nitwits paying just half of those fines…?

Asked whether Ban should retract his comment, Gibbs said some recognition by Ban of the U.S. role would be appropriate.

“I think given the contribution that the American taxpayer makes, I do think it would be appropriate to acknowledge that role,” Gibbs told reporters at his daily briefing.

Damn skippy, Gibbs, ol’ boy.  Start with that huge building complex up there, on land generally considered to be supreme primo.  That complex, in & of itself, ought to take care of our so-called “obligation” in perpetuity, IYAM.

Then again, if you ask me, the UN ought to be nuked.  Hard.

Ban, apparently concerned about his choice of words, issued a statement late Wednesday saying the U.S. “generously supports the work of the U.N., both in assessed and voluntary contributions.” Ban also said he enjoys “an excellent working relationship with the United States and appreciates the many ways that it supports the United Nations.”

Yeah, I’ll just bet.

Smarmy little pisspot.

Now, about those parking tickets…
