Friday Bits and Pieces
Mom jeans have been retired…one thing MO did right….courtesy of White House Dossier
President Obama announced Thursday at the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown that First Lady Michelle Obama had gotten rid of the “dad jeans” he wore throwing out the first pitch at the 2009 All-Star game.
Mark Cuban attacked for being honest…”I don’t want to be part of that” either.
‘In no uncertain terms am I supporting what Donald Sterling said, or his position,’ Cuban said. ‘He’s obviously racist, he’s obviously bigoted. And in this day and age when you’re in the public eye you’ve got to be damn careful – if that’s your position and that’s unfortunately where you’re at – you better be damn careful what you say, even in the privacy of your own home.
‘But regardless of your background, regardless of the history they have, if we’re taking something somebody said in their home and we’re trying to turn it into something that leads to you being forced to divest property in any way, shape or form, that’s not the United States of America. I don’t want to be part of that.’
Self preservation trumps race…every single time. If you live in an urban area, like I do, common sense trumps political correctness every time.
Flood of Comments Prompts IRS to Rethink Rule Limiting Political Activity of Nonprofits Let’s just walk that back until after the 2014 elections. Libs realize the rules would apply to them too. How “unfair” is that….
Lawmakers and policy analysts at both ends of the political spectrum have criticized the draft guidelines, which would bar tax-exempt groups from engaging in certain election-related activities, including voter-registration and get-out-the-vote drives. Conservatives have argued that the proposals are part of an Obama administration plot to silence criticism from the right. Liberals, many of whom contend that groups are using their tax-exempt status to influence elections without disclosing their donors, have said the plans simply go too far and need reworking.
JW Attorney Michael Bekesha, who’s handling JW’s Fast and Furious lawsuit, was in court during the recent hearing between the DOJ and the House investigative committee. For those who find the lengthy transcript too boring, here’s a layman’s synopsis from Bekesha: “They basically argued that, in the olden days, when Congress asked for documents and they said ‘no,’ they just went away.” That isn’t happening here.” How convenient that a government agency can swat away a congressional request for documents as if it were an annoying fly.
Best commencement speech ever…watch it all
The madder and meaner Bob Beckel gets, the happier we should be…it means we are winning the debate and he knows it.
