Neil Armstrong, Dead Today August 25, 2012

But, NBC announced the death of Neil Young. He was the first man to walk on the moon, you know. Oh, wait. That was Lance Armstrong - he was the first man to walk ... no, that's not right, either. Hey, can someone find a grown up, please!

In the meantime, NBC went with this headline:


Guessing Neil Young was close - he did do Harvest Moon and that does have "moon" in it.





Neil Armstrong did the Moon, and he was not only the first human being to walk on the Moon, but any extraterrestrial body. Until Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin, mankind had been confined to this good earth. Today, we can watch the  robot explorer, Curiosity, rove across the surface of Mars. As grand as that is, nothing compares to staying up late to watch grainy black and white images of LEMs (Eagle) decent to the surface. Seeing the surface as too rocky to land, Armstrong took control from the landing computer and guided Eagle to a flat area and set Eagle down on the Moon surface with only 30 seconds of fuel remaining. Armstrong informed Mission Control, "Ahh, Houston. Tranquility base here. The Eagle has landed." 

Later, Armstrong stepped off the LEM and coolly intoned as only an engineer could, "That is one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind."



Rest in peace, Neil Armstrong.

CNN's Anderson Cooper Eviscerates DNC's Debbie Wasserman Schultz

Cooper pressed Democratic National Committee chairwoman DWS on tonight's AC360° that she had misquoted the LA Times in a campaign mass email concerning the Romney Campaign's stance on abortion while she denied there was any misquoting done. Cooper proceeded to read the correct LAT words and DWS said, "What I'm saying is, it doesn't matter." Cooper holds her feet to the fire for taking the LA Times out of context in a fund raising email opposing Romney and supporting Obama.



Essentially she's saying, "I'm lying. So what?" And this is another 'in-the-bag' reporter who is no longer playing nice with the Chosen One. This is an indication that some in the MSM are not giving the Obama reelection a free pass to the White House. A discounted pass maybe, but not free.

Joe Biden Speaks - Bless His Heart


Dude! Seriously - tmi!

Don't even get him started on Y-M-C-A

President Obama needed a do-over to spell “Ohio” correctly on the campus of Ohio State University this week.
(...)

The photo, tweeted by Romney's Ohio communications director, Christopher Maloney, shows Obama and the three students all a little confused about how to spell the state;s name, with Obama holding his hands up in what seems to be an "H" and as the third letter.

I don't see the problem here.

As the designated driver, the monkey wasn't drinking.



A Georgia Health Sciences University lab tech was recently discovered in a campus locker room engaging in unusual behavior.
Authorities said 32-year-old Coley Mitchell was jailed after he was found intoxicated with his pants down in a locker room in the Sanders Research and Education Building while two lab monkeys were found roaming free, outside their cages, the Augusta Chronicle reported.
Mitchell was booked into Richmond County jail on charges of public intoxication. The monkeys were examined and found to be unharmed.

Obama Photos Then and Now

Then, the Black Jesus.
                    

And now, Squarehead Spongepants.
 

This is a genuine Reuters photograph of Obama speaking at a campaign event at Capital University in Cleveland, Ohio August 21, 2012.

Something very real is happening here when the loyal press makes sport of their messiah.

When Media Lapdogs Attack

My, my! The times (and Newsweek), they are a-changin'.

In his inaugural address, Obama promised “not only to create new jobs, but to lay a new foundation for growth.” He promised to “build the roads and bridges, the electric grids, and digital lines that feed our commerce and bind us together.” He promised to “restore science to its rightful place and wield technology’s wonders to raise health care’s quality and lower its cost.” And he promised to “transform our schools and colleges and universities to meet the demands of a new age.” Unfortunately the president’s scorecard on every single one of those bold pledges is pitiful.

In an unguarded moment earlier this year, the president commented that the private sector of the economy was “doing fine.” Certainly, the stock market is well up (by 74 percent) relative to the close on Inauguration Day 2009. But the total number of private-sector jobs is still 4.3 million below the January 2008 peak. Meanwhile, since 2008, a staggering 3.6 million Americans have been added to Social Security’s disability insurance program. This is one of many ways unemployment is being concealed.

In his fiscal year 2010 budget—the first he presented—the president envisaged growth of 3.2 percent in 2010, 4.0 percent in 2011, 4.6 percent in 2012. The actual numbers were 2.4 percent in 2010 and 1.8 percent in 2011; few forecasters now expect it to be much above 2.3 percent this year.

Unemployment was supposed to be 6 percent by now. It has averaged 8.2 percent this year so far. Meanwhile real median annual household income has dropped more than 5 percent since June 2009. Nearly 110 million individuals received a welfare benefit in 2011, mostly Medicaid or food stamps.

Welcome to Obama’s America: nearly half the population is not represented on a taxable return—almost exactly the same proportion that lives in a household where at least one member receives some type of government benefit. We are becoming the 50–50 nation—half of us paying the taxes, the other half receiving the benefits.
(...)
It is a sign of just how completely Barack Obama has “lost his narrative” since getting elected that the best case he has yet made for reelection is that Mitt Romney should not be president. In his notorious “you didn’t build that” speech, Obama listed what he considers the greatest achievements of big government: the Internet, the GI Bill, the Golden Gate Bridge, the Hoover Dam, the Apollo moon landing, and even (bizarrely) the creation of the middle class. Sadly, he couldn’t mention anything comparable that his administration has achieved.
Read the rest at The Daily Beast

As nebulous as it is, can you feel it? The hoped for change is in the air. No matter what Obama does, no matter what the Democrats or Liberals do, they have lost this election and possibly the next. We are told the Conservative movement is moribund and the TEA Party is dead, but the fact is we are just waiting calmly, patiently, politely for November 6 to arrive so we can cast the vote that we have decided so many months ago.
