Here, you are urged and encouraged to run your mouths about something important.

I'm really struggling to understand something here. In July, when the deposed (and annoying) Honduran president Manuel Zelaya walked across the Nicaraguan border into Honduras donning a white cowboy hat and a megaphone, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton called such actions "reckless".

Now we learn that Zelaya (with at least some level of international support) has made his way into the Brazilian embassy that sits in the Honduran capital, Tegucigalpa. Riots have already begun. Considering that sitting president Roberto Micheletti is willing to step down if Zelaya agrees not to pursue a return to power, we're seeing who is the more power hungry of the two. So far, the U.S. State Department, through spokesman Ian Kelly, is urging that violence be prevented.

Help me with this one. Hillary called Zelaya's half-cocked actions "reckless" in July. Yet, ever since Zelaya was removed on June 28th, the official American stance has been to support his return to power. Now we learn that the "reckless" behavior Zelaya engaged in this past July by walking into Honduran territory has been escalated to the point that he is literally the source of unrest in the country he claims to hold so much love for.

With each passing day, Zelaya is exposing himself as the power-hungry thug and leader he was removed for being. Yet, our nation's leaders continue to support him while the leader of our State Department seems less willing to confront Zelaya the more "reckless" he becomes.

Micheletti' stalk continues to rise with me and he didn't fail to disappoint when, while talking to Reuters, he made reference to how welcome Zelaya is in Honduras by using terms that obviously referenced prison time:
Micheletti assured Zelaya that he can stay in Brazil's embassy for "five to 10 years" if he chooses. Micheletti said he has no intention of confronting Brazil or entering its embassy to go after Zelaya.
Did I mention that Micheletti's stock is rising with me?


Joe Scarborough may have totally succumbed to the MSNBC bubble that surrounds him. Maybe he's been attacked by liberal spores. If you'd like a microcosm of what happened to the mainstream media over the years, look at what's happening to Scarborough at MSNBC. When you put one conservative in an outfit like MSNBC, he is going to change. You're either part of the Chris Matthews inspired leg thrill pack or you're alienated. Maybe Mika is having an effect on him that he's unaware of.

In any case, Scarborough seems all too willing to buy into the anti-Glenn Beck fervor that is raging on the left instead of looking at the facts.

Scarborough is officially a disappointment.




Folks, welcome to the slippery slope. If you post a poster of Obama as the Joker (like the one below), you might be arrested if you do it in Houston. I don't know what Houston law is but this definitely seems a bit extreme.

Perhaps you're only allowed to post Obama posters approved by the NEA in Houston?



It may be that the way to expose / defeat Community Organizing tactics is to turnover their rocks from underneath. That's what James O'Keefe and Hannah Giles did with Acorn. It's also what Patrick Courrielche did with the NEA, joining a conference call and reporting on it.

Now we have an unlikely mole penetrating the debacle that is the Cash 4 Clunkers bureaucracy, which comes under the purview of Department of Transportation. None other than Kathleen Willey entered that bureaucracy and reported back to WORLD NET DAILY.
After the federal "Cash for Clunkers" program ended Aug. 24, the Department of Transportation reported that nearly 700,000 clunkers were taken off the roads and replaced by more fuel-efficient vehicles. Rebate applications worth $2.877 billion were submitted by the 8 p.m. deadline. The Transportation Department hired federal employees and private contract workers to process the rebates vouchers so car dealers would be compensated.
One of those private companies, Vangent, based in Arlington, VA provided Willey with a job working on the Dealership Rebate Vouchers. Interestingly, when you go to the VANGENT website, you'll see that they are somehow involved with the 2010 Census and are asking for volunteers to help administer it. When you click on the census application link from the website, you are directed to THIS PAGE.

Back to what Willey uncovered. If her experience is common then the administration of this program was weak at best. Aside from mentioning the extremely unprofessional appearance of job applicants (some not wearing shoes), Willey maintains that there didn't seem to be background checks done or relevant job history taken into account.

Willey processed the Cash for Clunkers vouchers at her position in Chester, Va. She attended a job fair on Aug. 31 and was hired through Astyra Corp., a minority-owned staffing company.

"We were told that we would be working on the Cash for Clunkers programming, examining all of the documents that the government had received from dealers all over the country," Willey told WND.

She said many of the applicants had never even heard of the Cash for Clunkers program.

"We were not asked for any prior work history," Willey said. "The job description was listed as data entry and called for the ability to type 30 words per minute. There were no job requirements actually listed on the application."
Aside from having a lot of down time and getting virtually no supervision, perhaps one of the most egregious examples of why government should never be in charge of running a business is shown in its level of concern for payroll management. Willey not only reported that there was little to no supervision but that she was significantly overpaid.
During a 37.5-hour work week, Willey reported actually working only 14 hours – but she was paid for more than 37 hours of work.

"Two of those nights, I had no work at all," she said. "On those two evenings, when I left, I complained to two different supervisors and I got two different responses: 'Milk it, baby!' and 'Free money!'"
Just like ACORN and the White House's alleged dealings with the NEA, we are again looking at quintessential Saul Alinsky. In particular, Rules #6 and #7 from "RULES 4 RADICALS" seem to apply:
Rule 6: A good tactic is one your people enjoy. “If your people aren’t having a ball doing it, there is something very wrong with the tactic.”
Employees working on this C4C debacle were allegedly told they would be helping the environment, given no supervision, and paid (or overpaid) for doing little or no work.
Rule 7: A tactic that drags on for too long becomes a drag. Commitment may become ritualistic as people turn to other issues.
Cash 4 Clunkers was a short-lived program, as was the administering of the Rebate Voucher Applications. The tactic (if that's what it was) didn't drag on too long and it was one its people enjoyed.

ACORN, the NEA, and C4C are all taking massive hits as a direct result of infiltration. These are having an effect and should be stepped up.
