Mark Lloyd--FCC Czar

Washington, D.C. — Federal Communications Commission Chairman Julius Genachowski appointed Mark Lloyd, a former senior fellow at the George Soros-funded Center for American Progress (CAP), to be the FCC’s “Chief Diversity Officer.” Lloyd is a proponent of the Fairness Doctrine and recently wrote that the Doctrine, and other regulatory tools such as localism and diversity mandates (more "blacks, women, & gays,") should be employed by the FCC to limit the number of conservative voices on the air and supplant them with liberal voices. He also suggests fining conservative radio stations up to $250 million (I must add that these programs are NOT federally funded--so what makes Lloyd think he has the right to any money privately generated by the popularity of these talk shows?) and giving the proceeds to national public radio

What is the Fairness Doctrine?  Basically it was a law passed in 1949 requiring the holders of broadcast licenses to present both sides of any controversial issues of public importance and to do so in a manner that was, in the Commission's view, honest, equitable and balanced.   The fairness doctrine has been eliminated since many claimed it violated free speech rights--guaranteed by the First Amendment.  Think about this administration . . . there are no limits.  So, if we have a program on heterosexuality--we must also have one on homosexuality.  Get the picture?

The point:  If Mark Lloyd has his way, each radio/television station will be required to have as many liberal programs as conservative.  If networks do not provide such programming they will be subject to fines and/or loss of licensing.    Ever hear of supply and demand?  If those programs were in demand--they'd have them on the air already.  Dahhh!  Check the ratings of the very toxic MSNBC.  Those guys are bitter!  And while you're at it . . . "google" Mark Lloyd and his quotes.  He thinks Hugo Chavez is a genius.

Talk About Staged!

Did any of you catch President Obama's "press conference" in Lisbon Portugal? He's been making the rounds--preaching to the world. But this particular press conference caught my attention right off. After he patted himself on the back for a job well done, he reached into his pocket, pulled out a paper and said he would now take questions. He looked at his list and called on the first plant, errh journalist, who happened to be a woman from PBS (George Soros funded). Her question was regarding the Republican resistance to Obama's agenda. He then gave an "outlined" answer to the woman's question. He continued in this manner for the entire briefing. Whatever happened to the days where journalists clamored to get their question answered first? I think it's shameless that journalists allow themselves to be used and manipulated in this manner. But then--what do I know?

If This Doesn't GiveYou Goosebumps--Nothing Will!


The epitomy of arrogance:  Nearly the entire world (France, England, China, Japan, Greece, Spain, Ireland--not to mention approximately 80% of your fellow-countrymen) tells you that you're heading for an economical train wreck.  But you stay the course because YOU KNOW MORE THAN EVERYONE ELSE.  Who could this be?  None other than our own President Barrack Hussein Obama. 

Meanwhile, he's also reaching out to "heal" relationships between the United States and (our good "friends"--my own insert) the Muslim world.

Obama hosts economic summit with Muslim entrepreneurs from 50 nations
"In a step the White House hopes will help shift relations beyond decades of talk about terrorism and conflict, Obama brought entrepreneurs from 50 countries to Washington for two days to spur economic ties.  The president pledged to host the meeting in a landmark speech in Cairo last June, when he also called for a "new beginning" to relations between the United States and the Muslim world.

There is no doubt in my mind that this man is a Muslim pretending to be a Christian.  You decide for yourself.

Waddya Think?

Genesis 41:29-31 Behold, there come seven years of great plenty throughout all the land of Egypt:
And there shall arise after them seven years of famine; and all the plenty shall be forgotten in the land of Egypt; and the famine shall consume the land;
And the plenty shall not be known in the land by reason of that famine following; for it shall be very grievous.

Is it possible that we have just had the seven years of plenty?

The Fox Guarding the Hen House

Those assigned to monitor the "waste" of our president's stimulus bill have such a daunting task that they need special accommodations in order to carry out this assignment.  Each of them has an office with--I'm sure--a large conference room.  Hmmm. . . not good enough?  They are holding this conference at the Ritz Carlton in Phoenix, Arizona.  The rooms rent for approximately $300-$500/day (just like your last business trip, right?).  At this summit they will discuss various techniques to detect and prevent fraud, waste, and abuse, as well as larger issues of transparency and public awareness.  Portions of the meeting will be open to the public, while other parts will be closed.  Be sure to click on the first link and take a photo tour of this antiquated hotel.  I'm guessing that the taxpayer (you) is also paying air fare/private jets to bring these hard-working blokes into town.  How successful do YOU think they'll be?  (If these links don't work just google "stimulus waste convention" and you'll find everything you need.  Happy hunting.)

I've Been Gone

The hubby and I decided to take a much needed vacation and headed for Arizona. We wanted to show our support for that "battered" state by spending a little cash there. While we were traveling I took it upon myself to ask the "locals" what they thought of their governor and the "lawsuit". The results were surprising. Most people had no opinion whatsoever about Jan Brewer--governor of AZ. The only firm comment I got was "She's a drunk!" As to the lawsuit--most Arizonans looked perplexed when I asked them about it. "Who's being sued?" I find it amazing that while the country is anxiously watching to see what happens with Arizona's fight to secure it's border--most of it's citizens could not care less. Granted, most of my contact with the locals was at the gas stations or grocery stores, but come on???  I guess they'll pay attention when they're annexed into Mexico!
