Lets start out with Ted Nugent:
I usually ignore assholes such as Ted Nugent. Mainly because Ted is a stupid, drunk, drugged out relic from the 60′s who needs to appear on that reality TV show where old washed up has been celebrities go to expire. I forget the name of that VH-1 program.
Anyway……From The Grio……
The Secret Service talked to Nugent last year after the musician, a long-time NRA board member, criticized President Obama and the Supreme Court at the National Rifle Association meeting in St. Louis.
Nugent, who supported Republican Mitt Romney for president, said if Obama won re-election, “I will either be dead or in jail by this time next year.”
Stockman’s office will be scheduling interviews for Nugent after Obama’s remarks to a joint session of Congress. Each rank-and-file member of Congress is entitled to invite one guest to these joint sessions.
“I am excited to have a patriot like Ted Nugent joining me in the House chamber to hear from President Obama,” said Stockman, R-Texas. “After the address, I’m sure Ted will have plenty to say.”
Stockman, who returned to Congress in January after a 16-year hiatus, garnered headlines by threatening to impeach Obama if he used executive privilege to push gun-control legislation. Obama has proposed several measures, including a new assault weapons ban, a limit on the capacity of ammunition clips, and universal background checks.
The gun legislation faces fierce resistance from Republicans in Congress. Stockman, who backed off the impeachment threat, recently introduced legislation to repeal zero-tolerance laws for guns in school zones.”
Nugent once said: “If Barack Obama becomes President…I will either be dead or in jail.” I vote for dead in jail. It’s disrespectful to have him present at the State Of The Union address. I so hope he is drunk & shouts out & has to be removed from the Chamber by Capital Hill Police, in handcuff & leg irons. Poetic Justice.
Thank you GuardianUK……
Pope Benedict XVI resigns owing to age and declining health
Pope Benedict XVI stunned the world and left the Catholic church reeling when he said on Monday that he would resign – the first pope to do so since the middle ages.
The move, announced without warning, will take place on 28 February and leave the papacy vacant until a successor is chosen.
A Vatican spokesman said the pontiff’s aides were “incredulous” when he told them he would step down because he was too weak to fulfil his duties. The pope summoned a meeting of cardinals to tell them of “a decision of great importance for the life of the church”.
This is good news. Now he can join the other catholic church officials who are gone, to escape doing anything to solve the issue of pedophile priest. If you can’t prosecute ‘em…join ‘em.
The President’s Travel Plans:
From Rachel Maddow:
Presidential road trip annoys GOP
Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) complained on Fox News yesterday, “All [President Obama] does is go out and make speeches” instead of negotiating with lawmakers like him. Around the same time, on “Meet the Press,” Republican strategist Mike Murphy argued that the president should “stop the speeches” and “stop the politicization.” Also on “Meet the Press,” Republican pundit Michael Gerson complained about the “outside game [Obama's] been pursuing,” in which the president hits the road, “beating up on the Congress.”
It’s not exactly subtle: Obama’s GOP detractors aren’t happy about the president taking his message directly to the public though outside-the-beltway events.
Then again, it appears the White House doesn’t much care. When Obama delivered a big speech on preventing gun violence, he did so not in Washington, but in Minnesota. When he spoke on immigration reform, the president skipped D.C. and traveled to Las Vegas.
The president will deliver the State of the Union from Capitol Hill tomorrow, but over the weekend, the White House announced the president’s plans for the rest of the week.
After Tuesday evening’s State of the Union address, the President will travel to three different communities to discuss proposals, unveiled in the speech, that focus on strengthening the economy for the middle class and those striving to get there. On Wednesday, February 13th, the President will travel to the Asheville, North Carolina area for an event. On Thursday, February 14th, the President will travel to the Atlanta, Georgia area for an event. On Friday, February 15th, the President will travel to the Chicago area for an event.
To be sure, this is hardly the first time a president has taken a post-SOTU road trip, but these excursions come against an interesting backdrop.
For one thing, we have Republicans urging Obama not to take his message directly to the public, which should probably be a sign that the president is doing the smart thing
Has there ever been an attention/media whore like John McCain? I am sick and disgusted at seeing, hearing this NRAsshole supporting, lying, senile ass dipshit on MY TV screen. John McCain is the poster bitch for why term limits are NECESSARY.
Why Is There No White History Month…..OR Why Is Black History Month Necessary?:
What to do if someone asks: ‘Why isn’t there a White History Month?’
Every February 1st, it happens like clockwork. Folks complain. On Twitter and Facebook, in idle chatter before meetings and around the water cooler someone wonders aloud why there has to be Black History Month?
The condensed answer is this: When the day arrives that racism and hatred of skin color that is NOT caucasian colored….when Black Americans can TRUST caucasians to teach true factual history…..when the southern states are NO LONGER attempting to erase slavery from American history…..then there will be no need for a Black History Month, because American History will be the history of ALL Americans…..including Black America, Native America, Hawaiian America, LGBTQ America, Latin America, European America.
