President Hamid Karzai has signed a law the UN says legalises rape in marriage and prevents women from leaving the house without permission.
The country that The One calls Pah-kee-stahn, essentially legalized marital rape and imprisonment. I doubt we'll hear narry a peep from femenists since for democrats, liberal politics supplant literally every other belief, even anti-rape. And for Obama, embracing the world's most up-and-coming radical, Islamic state, Pakistan, is liberal, political priority number one, even if they say it's OK to rape and imprison your wife.
So the reigning Miss Universe, Dayana Mendoza, visited Club Gitmo as part of the USO tour. And she wrote about it on her Facebook page. Here are a couple of interesting exerpts....
This week, Guantánamo!!! It was an incredible experience.
...We visited the Detainees camps and we saw the jails, where they shower, how the recreate themselves with movies, classes of art, books. It was very interesting.
...I didn’t want to leave, it was such a relaxing place, so calm and beautiful.
Wait, according to our media, the detainees are being routinely tortured and treated as sub-humans. If regular movies, art classes, halal meals, complimentary prayer rugs and Korans, soccer, and library books in a sunny environment of relaxation and serenity are torture, my every-day life really, I mean really sucks! My vacations should be so nice and peaceful.
In order to create demand for these clown cars, Obama will find a way to raise dramatically the taxes on petroleum companies so that prices at the pump are so high that we have no choice but to drive stupid hybrids. He'll probably raise corporate tax rates first, and then use the moronic cap-and-trade scheme to force prices at the pump even higher.
For liberalism to work, Americans need to be suffering, so democrats will do whatever they can to prolong our suffering.
Under The One, if you drive one of these, you'll be an enemy of the State.
As the climate crisis mounts and Arctic icebergs slip away, polar bears are suffering starvation, population declines, and drowning as they must swim further and further to find food. Seeking to raise awareness for the endangered species' plight, ADDI Concepts has taken wildlife preservation literally by designing a life-vest for displaced polar bears struggling to stay afloat as their homes sink into the sea.
It's too bad that the polar bear population is actually increasing, because of the exploding population of seals and fat, slow-moving environmentalists. Still, I'd love to watch them attempt to put a life vest on a polar bear.
Looks like this polar bear caught another slow-moving environmentalist.

Pirates who attacked a ship off the coast of Somalia got more than they bargained for when it turned out to be a naval vessel - from an international force against piracy, Nato said.
What's the world coming to when a swashbuckling, scurvy dog can't even make a living by looting, raping, and plundering on the high seas?
Pirates, and pirate ships, just aren't what they used to be.
"Here's my problem with this, I'm just going to come out and say it. If I have anything to say against Obama it's not because I'm a racist, it's because I don't like what he's doing as President and anybody should be able to feel that way, but what I find now is that if you say anything against him you're called a racist."
Given that most of the media and half of America have a bizarre, drooling, race-based obsession with Barack Obama, is it any wonder that dissenters have to fear the "racist" label simply for asking questions? Pardon me, but if questioning the wisdom and competence of an absurdly inexperienced community agitator who managed to ride a wave of hyperbolic media hysteria into the presidency is racist, then count me as one.
Thanks to FoxNews.

Obama seems to be the only person who doesn't know that he's abysmally lacking in executive experience, ability, or qualification to be President. In that way, he's the personification of the Emperor with no clothes. If that's the case, then Joe Biden must surely be the royal court jester.
If you recall, a month before the Spanish elections, Al-Qaida bombed the train station in Madrid. The cowardly Spanish people promptly elected an equally cowardly President in Zapatero. He won by promising to make nice with Al-Qaida and by promising not to lift a single finger to help the US rid Iraq of the Butcher of Baghdad in return for not bombing any more Spanish targets. One finger he did lift was his middle one, toward the US by pulling out of Iraq.
Biden was in Chile meeting with Zapatero last week and remembered to thank Zapatero for Spain's help in Iraq. What an idiot, and what a perfect representative of the most inexperienced, unqualified administration in US presidential history.

Here's a better idea for all TRR readers around the world. Between 8:30 and 9:30 local time, turn all your lights on to show appreciation for mens' conquest of and dominion over the elements, including the darkness. Simply by doing all the things you normally do at night, you are by default thumbing your nose at the morons who're sitting in darkness. If you have a smelly-hippie environmentalist for a neighbor who's house is dark, call him up and tell him to look across the street and witness your performative testament to human achievement.
Then, to really make him feel stupid, ask him to look up a phone number for you.
If it's 8:30-9:30 where they live, these people must be free-market, capitalist conservatives.

Undoubtedly over the next few weeks, we'll be treated by the breathless, liberal media, having cannonized this useful-idiot douchebag, to all kinds of stories of abuse and torture of the gentle Muslims by the evil, white, sadistic, American guards at Club Gitmo.
Besides Rahm Emanuel, have you ever seen somebody in greater need of a smack in the mouth than this pud?
Thanks to Moonbattery.
Experiment in Socialism
An economics professor at Texas Tech said he had never failed a single student before but had, once, failed an entire class. The class had insisted that socialism worked and that no one would be poor and no one would be rich, a great equalizer. The professor then said, "OK, we will have an experiment in this class on socialism."
All grades would be averaged and everyone would receive the same grade so no one would fail and no one would receive an A. After the first test the grades were averaged and everyone got a B. The students who studied hard were upset and the students who studied little were happy. But, as the second test rolled around, the students who studied little had studied even less and the ones who studied hard decided that since they could not make an A, they studied less. The second Test average was a D! No one was happy. When the 3rd test rolled around the average was an F.
The scores never increased as bickering, blame, name calling all resulted in hard feelings and no one would study for anyone else. All failed to their great surprise and the professor told them that socialism would ultimately fail because the harder people try to succeed the greater their reward but when a government takes all the reward away; no one will try or succeed.
Think about how Obama's redistributive vision of America might turn out.
Brazil's President, while meeting with British Prime Minister Gordon Brown Thursday, said the global financial crisis was caused by "white people with blue eyes."
Liberals love to hate America and rant endlessly about how evil capitalism and free markets are. Whenever they can find somebody from a poorer country who blames America for everybody's problems, they'll latch on to him as if he's the second coming of Christ....just like they did with Castro and then Chavez. But the icing on the cake is his singling out of white people as the specific villians. Liberals love singling out white people for abuse. In some perverse catharsis, it alleviates their own white guilt for a time.
I swear, there is nothing as annoying as guilty, white liberals.

There are bills making their way through some state legislatures that would require random drug testing for anybody who sucks at the public teat by consuming one or more of the generous welfare benefits we productive taxpayers make available to the unproductive. Predictably, democrats are against holding anybody to any standards as doing so might feel judgemental. Plus, denying welfare recipients the freedom to indulge in the vices that made them destitute in the first place might result in a few less democrat votes come election time. And let's face it, showering the deadbeat masses with fabulous cash and prizes of other peoples' money isn't about helping them, it's about insuring they remain unmotivated and dependent on democrats and therefor likely to vote to keep the booty coming.
I fully support drug testing of derelicts on the public dole. And I would go one step further. I would fully support mandatory, implanted-style birth-control for any female that lives off the earnings of others and from whom nothing more is expected. If she refuses implantation birth control, then she receives no benefits. Moreover, any girl on welfare who gets pregnant should have to name the father(if she knows him)or risk termination of benefits, so the authorities can immediately begin seizing earnings and/or property to help pay for his offspring.
It's time to stop celebrating freak-show irresponsibility like Nadya Suleman's, and expect something from them like no drugs and no more kids. It's the least they can do to repay a generous and compassionate society.
I found this article today, and it was just too funny to pass up posting. Here Goes:
SAGINAW, Mich. — A man police caught performing a sex act with a car wash vacuum has been sentenced to 90 days in prison.
Jason Leroy Savage must also submit to drug testing.
The 29-year-old from Michigan, was sentenced Wednesday at Saginaw County Circuit Court.
Savage pleaded no contest to indecent exposure last month.
Police say Savage was arrested after a resident called officers early on Oct. 16 to report suspicious activity at a car wash in Thomas Township, about 90 miles northwest of Detroit.
Savage's attorney, Philip Sturtz, didn't immediately return a message seeking comment.
Don't you know that the Savage family is proud this man. Sex with a vacuum hose. I wonder if he had his trusty "Penthouse" fold out with him? Jason has peaked at a very low sexual level. I wonder if it was one of those machines that work after quarters are deposited? I also wonder what happened with the remaining minute and a half on the timer? Remember this guy voted in the last election. Now do you wonder why this world is failing fast!
With Obama's ridiculous, race-based popularity, the feckless media ready to destroy any dissenters, and republicans compromised and rightfully shamed from having supported Bush's squandering of the budget surplus, nobody has the balls to stand up to Obama but, it would sure be satisfying to hear somebody do it anyway.
Plus, this guy's a better speaker without a teleprompter than The One is relying on a teleprompter to tell him what to say.
SAGINAW, Mich. — A man police caught performing a sex act with a car wash vacuum has been sentenced to 90 days in prison.
A carwash vacuum? Seriously?
This dude got to third base for like $1.25...and on the first date. Granted it was with an industrial vacuum cleaner but, in this economy who can afford to wine and dine an actual girl?
In a move that will likely get California's consumers in a huff, impending legislation may soon restrict the paint color options for Golden State residents looking for their next new vehicle. The specific colors that are currently on the chopping block are all dark hues, with the worst offender seemingly the most innocuous color you could think of: Black.
Apparently, the California Air Resources Board figures that the climate control systems of dark colored cars need to work harder than their lighter siblings – especially after sitting in the sun for a few hours.
I swear, the abject stupidity of these global-warming zealots just boggles the mind.
How long before the environmental fascists where you live start telling you what car colors are approved by the imperial State?
The best scene happens toward the end of the episode when they show how the Treasury Department chooses how to handle each crisis. I almost choked on my ice-cream I laughed so hard.

BUTTE, Mont. (AP) - Three California families headed to a retreat for the ultrarich were among the 14 victims of a plane crash in Montana.
For heaven's sake! What possible relevance to the plane crash does "retreat for the ultrarich" have? None at all. The stupid, jackass reporter that wrote it is suggesting, and not too subtly, that because they were ultrarich, that they probably deserved to die in a fiery plane crash. Otherwise why add that qualifier?
This is what Obama has wrought in America....open class warfare and resentment toward anybody who has more than you. It's disgusting and shameful!
The robber entered wearing a ski mask. He approached a clerk, showed his gun and demanded money, said Miami police spokesman Jeff Giordano.
A customer eyed him and the two started arguing. The customer had a concealed-weapons permit and his gun -- and the two exchanged gunfire.
The robber crumpled to the floor and was pronounced dead at the scene.
Who knows how many customers might have been killed if that hero hadn't put the robber down? Good for him.
I've said it before, and I'll say it again: where ever conceal/carry permits are obtainable by ordinary, law-abiding citizens, you have far less violent crime because the bad guys never know who's packing heat and who's not.

Apparently since there have been no actual terrorist emergencies, Chicago's school authorities just make them up now, and the geniuses at the Chicago Sun Times, thought it was newsworthy...
"School evacuated after chlorine-like smell found near pool"
In other CST headlines, "Beach evacuated after dry, white, granular substance found", or
"Great Lakes evacuated after cold, scaly animals found living there".
(CNN) -- An Indonesian fisherman has been killed by Komodo dragons after he was attacked while trespassing on a remote island in search of fruit, officials said Tuesday.
Muhamad Anwar, 32, bled to death on his way to hospital after being mauled by the reptiles at Loh Sriaya, in eastern Indonesia's Komodo National Park, the park's general manager Fransiskus Harum told CNN.
"The fisherman was inside the park when he went looking for sugar-apples. The area was forbidden for people to enter as there are a lot of wild dragons," Harum said.
This guy must have really, really liked sugar apples.

Would you trust a condom made in China?
Call it a condom conundrum.
At a time when the federal government is spending billions of stimulus dollars to stem the tide of U.S. layoffs, should that same government put even more Americans out of work by buying cheaper foreign products?
In this case, Chinese condoms.
That's the dilemma for the folks at the U.S. Agency for International Development, which has distributed an estimated 10 billion U.S.-made AIDS-preventing condoms in poor countries around the world.
But not anymore.
In a move expected to cost 300 American jobs, the government is switching to cheaper off-shore condoms, including some made in China.
The switch comes despite implied assurances over the years that the agency would continue to buy American whenever possible.
First they loaded up toys with lead paint, then they killed a bunch of pets with melamine-laced dog food, then somehow diethylene glycol(engine coolant) found it's way into toothpaste imported from China. According to Americans who've visited the manufacturing sector there, oversight, quality control, and basic standards of safety are non-existant. That may be fine if all you're buying is rubber dog crap but, would you trust the prevention of AIDS to a country that you cannot trust not to accidentally put anti-freeze in toothpaste?
Here she is, ready for her hot date with you.
Going 62 in a 50-mph zone, a Jeep barreled west on a slippery, snow-covered Airport Expressway on Valentine’s Day and blew past an Allen County sheriff’s squad car.
One traffic stop later, two men inside the Jeep were outside being patted down by officers. They acted nervous, according to a police report. At one point they looked as if they wanted to fight; at another they looked as if they wanted to flee.
In the Jeep’s back seat, police found more than $26,000 in cash wrapped in a stocking cap.
Though officers held the two men for a short time in squad cars, they were eventually released without charges, save for the driver receiving a citation for driving with a suspended license.
And the money? The police kept it.
There's too big of a potential conflict here. The police force benefits greatly from these cash seizures, so they'll expand the definition of "reasonable suspicion" to include just about everything so they can get as much as possible. It's a slippery slope for society to be on when the police force can steal money from people for almost no reason.
Racial and ethnic information, collected when children register for school, can inform school board decisions on reading programs, discipline procedures or admissions policies for gifted classes. The government looks at test scores of minority groups to help determine whether schools make the grade under the No Child Left Behind law. In an increasingly data-driven culture, educators also scrutinize such test scores and enrollment figures to pick programs meant to narrow achievement gaps and equalize academic opportunity.
In government schools, it's all about equality of outcome, not equality of opportunity. Honors programs aren't merit based, they have to have precise ethnic representation. Teachers must dumb down the curriculum to make sure even the stupidest kid in class can pass. Diversity training, ethnic sensitivity, and eco-awareness have replaced reading, history, economics, and math as the core areas of study. It's no wonder the next generation of leaders will be witless slackers who cannot speak clearly, think rationally and analytically, or make logical decisions....they've never had to. But they'll still thing really highly of themselves because their self-esteem will have been stroked for the last 20 years.

Toward the end of the interview on Thursday, Obama told host Jay Leno he's been practicing at the White House's bowling alley but wasn't happy with his score of 129.
Leno complimented Obama on the score, but the president quipped, "It was like the Special Olympics or something," which prompted laughter from the audience.
If a republican had said something this insensitive and outrageous, there would be hell to pay with the media but, this deranged media shrugs, and looks the other way no matter what Obama says. It just shows you, the political correctness of never questioning The One, supercedes any, any other political correctness regardless of the conflict. So Obama can ridicule the retarded all he wants. Handicapped people are less protected than the preception of The One.
Obama the bully picks on Special Olympians for cheap laughs.

State officials say Minnesota is working on a pilot program to test the idea of charging drivers for each mile they drive. Other states around the country are considering a vehicle mileage tax, as revenues from the gas tax are expected to decline.
Tim Pawlenty is supposed to be a good conservative. At least he portrayed himself that way in the primaries. Why doesn't Minnesota government reduce it's spending to reflect the loss of tax revenue from lower gas prices and people driving less? Everybody else has to do with less, why not the government?
This just illustrates why all politicians are basically craven, power-addicts. They'll throw all ideology aside before giving up political power by cutting spending. Government will never do with less tax revenue. It will always expand but never contract and it will always, ALWAYS find a way to get more money from you, regardless of stated political ideology.
Americans driving on this road will be a cash bonanza for RINO governors like Pawlenty.
In a dramatic reversal Wednesday, Sen. Chris Dodd confessed to adding language to a spending cap in the stimulus bill last month that specifically excluded executive bonuses included in contracts signed before the bill's passage.
Dodd, D-Conn., told FOX News that Treasury officials forced him to make the change.
"As many know, the administration was, among others, not happy with the language. They wanted some modifications to it," he said. "They came to us, our staff, and asked for changes, and the changes at the time did not seem that obnoxious or onerous."
This is hilarious! Dodd is blaming Obama for the AIG bonus debacle. It's about time a democrat threw Obama under the bus for a change. It won't stick though, Obama is still made of teflon, at least for now. Dodd will just have to eat this one and hope he can get re-elected in spite of lying for days to the American people.
If you haven't attended one yet, April 15th will be a good and fitting opportunity to join other fed-up Americans at a National Tea Party gathering to protest the coming seizure by Obama, of huge amounts of our income. Click the link and find the nearest one in your state. If you go to one, take pictures of the crowd and any clever signs you see, send them to me and I'll post them here at TRR.

U.S. weighs expanded covert war in Pakistan
Would it be disrespectful to suggest that the Obama administration go look up the definition of the word "covert"?
Idiots! I swear!
Predictably, the Obama administration has completely politicized the US census by enlisting the deplorable and corrupt A.C.O.R.N. to help recruit census takers....
The Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now signed on as a national partner with the U.S. Census Bureau in February 2009 to assist with the recruitment of the 1.4 million temporary workers needed to go door-to-door to count every person in the United States -- currently believed to be more than 306 million people.
Given the illegal shananigans the ACORN thugs pulled during the election of The One, and it's demonstrated disregard for the law, there's no telling what the US census will look like when their volunteers get ahold of the forms. I predict that Detroit, Chicago, Manhattan, Philadelphia, L.A., and most of the Pacific Northwest, all democrat strongholds, will experience dramatic and unexplained population explosions that require dozens of additional representatives in Congress. At the same time, Bible-belt states like mine, traditionally GOP states, will suddenly find that they are over-represented.
The candidate who promised to be the most non-partisan President in history turns out to be a liar and the most partisan President.

Whatever, if GM can stay afloat by selling redesigned Camero's to emotionally-stunted rednecks with mullets who pick up underage girls at the roller-rink and to self-adoring, guido douchebags from Jersey, good luck with that.
There are rumors of democrats in DC whispering that Obama may actually be as incompetent as we conservatives told them he was. It seems that all he's done is promote spending huge amounts of money to fix literally every problem he encounters. That's the socialist part. That he has offered nothing else and leaves the details of the spending to Nancy Pelosi and Rahm Emanuel to work out is the incompetent part.
I think he knows he's in way over his head. And he doesn't have the self confidence that comes from the experience that most Presidents have, to form policy ideas of his own. All he knows to do is spend money we don't have and demonize the rich so he can raise their taxes to pay for the spending. Taxing and spending are the tenents of the democrat party and any retarded liberal can do both with ease, even a skeevy, former community agitator like Obama.

Looks like Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston wont' be staying together after all, despite having a baby together. Raise your hand if you saw this coming....let's see, that's one, two,.....OK that's like everybody.
Johnston said they needed time to grow up before following through on marriage plans.
"It's just us not, me not being mature enough, or something, and having a kid and thinking ... it could be better -- better for us to separate for a while," Johnston said.
So while he's growing up, maturing, and essentially continuing with his childhood, Bristol is busy at home actually being an adult with their child. So Levi figures he's mature and grown up enough to bang 16 year old Bristol but, he's not grown up enough to deal with the inevitable consequences of banging her. Great example he's setting.
Through our Lifeline Service you will receive FREE cellular service, a FREE cell phone, and FREE Minutes every month! SafeLink Wireless Service does not cost anything – there are no contracts, no recurring fees and no monthly charges.
Notice how they keep emphasizing "FREE". This is outrageous! Like the fabulous cash and prizes these derelicts already receive, it doesn't cost them anything, but it costs me plenty. Why should I care if some crack-head on foodstamps in the hood has a cell-phone or not? The only person he'll be speed-dialing is his pusher to get another fix, or the local welfare office to demand, "Where my check at?"
In case you want to know who's eligible to be given luxuries that you work to be able to afford, here are the absurdly generous criteria
You are eligible if.....You already participate in other State or Federal assistance program such as Federal Public Housing Assistance, Food Stamps and Medicaid.
Your total household income is at or below 135% of the poverty guidelines set by your State and/or the Federal Government.
Slowly, perniciously, and steadily, the government is removing anything negative about being a lazy, good-for-nothing bum. With welfare, medicare, foodstamps, HUD housing, free school lunches, now free cell phones, and other very generous hand-out programs, what's the reason for even trying to get a job, be responsible, get educated, stay off drugs, an not have babies? Insidiously, the government is making as many people as possible dependent on it for everything. And the only thing they'll want in return is votes.
Reader David was right....."Americans, hold on to your wallets".
WASHINGTON (AP) -- Rep. Barney Frank charged Monday that a decision by financially strapped insurance giant AIG to pay millions in executive bonuses amounts to "rewarding incompetence."
Echoing outrage expressed on both sides of the political aisle in the wake of revelations that American International Group will pay roughly $165 million in bonuses, Frank said he believes it's time to shake up the company.
"These people may have a right to their bonuses. They don't have a right to their jobs forever," said Frank, a Massachusetts Democrat who is chairman of the House Financial Services Committee.
The federal government shouldn't be dictating compensation or bonuses for anybody but themselves. That's a function of stockholders and compensation boards. That said, neither does the federal government have any, any business using taxpayer money to prop up failing companies in the first place....PERIOD!!!
But since the taxpayers own 80% of AIG, (i.e., we are the majority stockholders now) and many of us are losing our jobs, should they be doling out hundreds of millions in bonuses? Bonuses for what exactly? This company would be in ruin but for the taxpayers. What have these guys done to deserve bonuses? Bonuses are awarded for being highly successful, not miserable failures. I heard this weekend that at the end of 2008, when AIG knew they would be getting a huge bailout of cash, they quickly and secretly re-wrote their executive compensation contracts so several thousand of them could collect millions in bonuses that they would have otherwise lost. Barney Frank is right on this one.
The stupid argument for allowing the bonuses and unrestricted compensation packages is so the best and brightest financial minds will stay in US companies rather than go overseas to work for European banks which have no such restrictions. Best and brightest? Are you kidding me? These idiots knowingly bankrupted their companies while enriching themselves. I don't give a damn if they go to Europe. Let 'em. If Europe wants our incompetent executives, they can have them.
Bottom line: if you are too stupid to be successful on your own and you take money out of taxpayers' pockets, you must accept regulation, transparency, and reasonable limits on compensation. If that's unacceptable, then quit and move to Europe. We don't want you anyway.

My question is if the Boy Wonder wasn't the right choice, how can we trust that the 700billion T.A.R.P., the 900billion stimulus, and the 410billion omnibus bills were the right choices too? If Obama's instincts were so flawed that he turned over the job of recession recovery to a single guy who looks like a hung-over frat boy, doesn't that introduce obvious and serious questions about his instincts on every big decision? Of course it does.
Once again, we are reminded of how abysmally inexperienced, imcompetent, and unprepared Obama was to lead the country.
WASHINGTON (AP) - The White House objected Thursday to U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon's description of the United States as a "deadbeat" donor to the world body.
Ban used the phrase Wednesday during a private meeting with lawmakers at the Capitol, one day after he met with President Barack Obama in the Oval Office.
White House press secretary Robert Gibbs said Ban's "word choice was unfortunate," given that the U.S. is the largest contributor to the United Nations.
The United States pays 22 percent of the organization's nearly $5 billion operating budget but is perennially late paying its dues.
Asked whether Ban should retract his comment, Gibbs said some recognition by Ban of the U.S. role would be appropriate.
"I think given the contribution that the American taxpayer makes, I do think it would be appropriate to acknowledge that role," Gibbs told reporters at his daily briefing.
The awful, dispicable UN does not one good thing, anywhere on Earth. The blue-hats are much more likely to be implicated raping children, stealing from people, and funneling money to brutal dictatorships than they are stopping violence. In fact, where there is violence and shooting, that's the place you can count on not finding any UN troops. But that's where you'll always find American troops doing the job the UN is supposed to be doing.
The American taxpayer is robbed year after year to pay for this collection of kooks and anti-American despots to hang around New York and criticize us. The more virulently anti-American you are, the more of a hero you will be to the UN audience. The more you oppress your people, the more you steal aid money, and the more corrupt your dictatorship, the more favorably the UN will gaze upon you.
Yet, in spite of the hostility toward the US among UN representatives, President Obama wants to loot the American taxpayer for still more cash to fork over to Ban Ki-Moon for the UN's pointless, idiotic adventures in child rape around the world.
Here's Ban Ki-Moon, puckering up to kiss some anti-American, dictator butt.

Citigroup downgraded Wal-Mart Stores Inc (WMT.N) to “hold” from “buy” saying the proposed card check legislation would increase labor costs and could be a significant drag to earnings for the world’s largest retailer.
“We believe that WMT would be the primary target if EFCA/card check were to be passed,” analyst Deborah Weinswig wrote in a note to clients.
If the unions are successful, the company would have to concede higher wages for more seasoned employees, increase employee benefits significantly, and would experience diminished workforce flexibility, the analyst said.
Wal-Mart has done more to enable poor people to afford nice things than all government, handout programs put together. But it remains union-free. This infuriates liberals who have sold their souls for union support come election time. This dreadful card-check bill will raise prices at Wal-Mart significantly. But socialist liberals don't care about the poor, they only care about inflating union rolls because all that money comes to democrats during elections. The last thing we need is for hundreds of thousands of Wal-Mart workers to become lazy, worthless, slackers because as union laborers, they can't be fired.
Labor markets are like any other markets. They are subject to supply and demand forces. At Wal-Mart, the jobs pay exactly what the market dictates they should pay. If they were too low, people by the hundreds wouldn't be applying for each job opening. Obama and the democrats have union favors to return and card-check is how they're doing it.
Wal-Mart should go John Galt if card-check is passed. They should announce that they are closing up shop and moving to China and Europe. It would serve the democrats and the thankless employees who want to unionize right.
MANILA, Philippines — A 10-year-old girl was decapitated by a crocodile in a Philippine lake after the creature knocked over her canoe, police said Wednesday.
The girl and a classmate were on their way Saturday to their floating school on Agusan del Sur province's Mihaba Lake when the 23-foot-long crocodile bumped the boat, causing it to capsize, said Bunawan town police officer Melchor Danuco.
Rescuers found the girl's headless body floating on the lake on Tuesday, he said.
The classmate was rescued by a man escorting the pair in another boat, said Roel Hipulan, head of the private group that runs the school in remote Bunawan town.
"It's a monster crocodile," Hipulan said, adding that he had seen the creature. He said salt water crocodiles, some bigger than a bus, are known to inhabit the lake.
This kind of makes my complaints about the 4th-grade bully taking my lunch money seem kind of silly. Good grief!

March 10 (Bloomberg) -- China vehicle sales surged 25 percent in February, the first gain in four months, after the government cut taxes on some models, helping the country extend its lead as the world’s largest auto market this year.
China has halved retail taxes on small cars and drawn up plans to give out vehicle subsidies in rural areas to revive demand after auto sales rose at the slowest pace in a decade last year. Combined with the country’s wider 4 trillion yuan ($585 billion) economic stimulus package, the policies have caused General Motors Corp. to roughly double its forecast for China’s nationwide auto market growth this year.
Reality to Obama, come in! Reality to Obama, do you read me?
Tax cuts stimulate slow or stagnant economies, not government spending. But I forget that the Obama, Pelosi, and Reid don't have any intention of fixing the economy, they intend to use the pain and suffering of Americans to seize control of ever phase of American life they can.
As awful as McCain was as a candidate, he almost beat Obama. Think if the banking crisis had hit before the primaries, we'd be cheering President Romney right now, as he cut our taxes and optimistic citizens stimulated the economy rather than stimulating the government.
PROVIDENCE, R.I. -- Former U.S. Sen. John Edwards took another tentative step into the public spotlight Tuesday, speaking at Brown University about extreme poverty around the world and urging Americans to get involved in what he called a "fundamental moral issue."
I'll point out to the Breck Girl that Americans are the most generous people on Earth. Our poor, who enjoy cell phones, color TV's, and microwave ovens live as well as most middle-class Europeans. Moreover, we've poured untold trillions of tax dollars down the crap-hole of Africa and only managed to personally enrich the barbaric dictators there, that, and relieve the white-guilt of stupid liberals in the US. Sorry Silky, but preaching with a straight face, convincingly to struggling Americans about how greedy they are is going to be trickier than hiding your bastard son from your wife. And we see how that worked out for you.

"You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that, my dear friend, is about the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it."
Dr. Adrian Pierce Rogers (September 12, 1931 - November 15, 2005) of Love Worth Finding Ministries, Pastor Emeritus of Bellevue Baptist Church.
And you don't think that under the democrats' pernicious agenda, we're nearing the end of the United States as it was designed to be, a Constitutional republic based on freedom, liberty, and personal responsibility? If we don't elect conservatives in mass numbers in 2010 to control Obama, then our children, if not ourselves, will witness the fall of America as the beacon of freedom and independence in the world. It will become a second-rate, socialist, nanny-State where perpetually whining minorities clamor for government goody-bags provided by the shrinking productive class. Where innovators and risk takers are punished and the shifless, stupid, and lazy are rewarded with the wealth of men better than them.
I weep for the future.
I believe it's a little of both. Yes he and his cabinet, especially Wonder Boy Timothy Geithner, are miserably incompetent boobs who haven't a clue how to fix the economy or anything else for that matter. But what they do have is a radical, far-left, socialist agenda that is much easier to implement when people are miserable and suffering. It's not about fixing the free markets and allowing unfettered capitalism to fix itself, it's about the government, run by them, controlling everybody and everything.
They(Obama, Emanuel, Pelosi, Reid, Soros, Hillary, etc) already control the willing, submissive media, and they indoctrinate our children through the dreadful public education system. Further, they intend to seize control of the internet by ceding it's operation over to the U.N. which will immediately start collecting taxes on it. They intend to seize control of 1/8 of the US economy which is health-care, by giving away free services to vast numbers of deadbeats and illegals. As you know, they are currently taking control of banking, mortgage, and some manufacturing. To the extent that any banks or industry is left uncontrolled by the government, Obama plans to use the pernicious carbon cap-and-trade scheme to control which remaining, healthy industries succeed and which ones fail. And finally, though the US punishes businesses with the second highest corporate tax rates in the world, he plans to further eliminate off-shore tax breaks that allow US businesses to compete globally.
I swear, if you wrote a fictional plan to destroy the US from within, you couldn't come up with a more treacherous scheme than what The One is implementing right now.
If you are a business owner and you have the means, get out now while you can. Ireland and the Czech Republic come to mind as friendly havens for business, or one of the Eastern European countries with the flat tax.
Dust off your pitchforks and torches, it may be time for a little revolution.

CAIRO (AP) - A 75-year-old widow in Saudi Arabia has been sentenced to 40 lashes and four months in jail for mingling with two young men who are not close relatives, drawing new criticism for the kingdom's ultraconservative religious police and judiciary.
Al-Watan identified one man as Fahd al-Anzi, the nephew of Sawadi's late husband, and the other as his friend and business partner Hadiyan bin Zein. It said they were arrested by the religious police after delivering the bread. The men also were convicted and sentenced to lashes and prison.
The court said it based its ruling on "citizen information"
"Citizen information"? That means some dirty, busy-body snitch ratted her out to the authorities.
What kind of society punishes people for delivering loaves of bread to the elderly? A backwards, barbaric civilization of cavemen....or as it is known by it's more common name....Islam.
The rotten snitch deserves the lashes if you ask me.
Police say a very small quantity of drugs was placed in amnesty bins which were used at a music festival in Perth at the weekend.
The bins were located at the entrance of the Rock-It festival in Joondalup, where people could dispose of drugs without being charged.
Commander Cunningham says only a few people disposed of drugs in the bins.

Barney Frank: I Demand Prosecutions for Those Risk-Taking Villains Who Begat This Crisis!
Heavens! We can't have risk-taking in the markets now can we? It was Frank and Dodd who used the power of government to force all the bad bank and mortgage lending even though Bush and McCain tried to point out the danger ahead. Now he's running around outraged that nobody's been prosecuted. If there is ever a prosecutor assigned to investigate, it'll be a hand-picked, spineless todie who'll do exactly what Frank tells him to.
Here's Barney Frank, playing a little grab-ass with probably an intern. If there were any justice in the world, he would be playing a lot more than that in prison where he belongs.

Venezuela is swirling as rapidly down the toilet of socialism just as fast as thug dictator Hugo Chavez can flush. As with all sufferers of misery, Hugo would like some company......
Caracas - Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez on Friday called upon US President Barack Obama to follow the path to socialism, which he termed as the "only" way out of the global recession. "Come with us, align yourself, come with us on the road to socialism. This is the only path. Imagine a socialist revolution in the United States," Chavez told a group of workers in the southern Venezuelan state of Bolivar.
Oh don't worry Hugo, with the reprehensible socialist Obama running the US, we'll be right where you are in a few short years....tumbling into the oblivion and misery of nanny-state collectivism.
Here's first lady Michelle Obama serving soup to supposed derelicts in a DC soup kitchen. Homeless and destitute huh? Check out the fance-schmancy photo cell phone on that one dude.
Turns out the helpless among us aren't exactly all that helpless after all.
Thanks to MichelleMalkin.

Waukegan police said a clerk at a guns-and-ammunition store appears to have shot a man who was trying to rob the establishment this afternoon.
There they found a man who had been shot twice in the chest and once in the leg, and a shop clerk who had a gun trained on him, the statement said.
How stupid do you have to be to rob a gun store?
Aquatic animals that feed on lake and stream bottom sediments burp out small amounts of nitrous oxide, a potent greenhouse gas, a new study finds.
Nitrous oxide (N2O) is more commonly known to anyone who has sat in the dentist's chair as laughing gas.
In the atmosphere it is a powerful greenhouse gas, packing about 310 times the punch as the same weight of carbon dioxide
If it's possible to regulate and tax the respiration of earth worms under the ridiculous hoax of global warming, I'm sure the Obama administration will find a way. But what about all those hybrid-driving, granola-munching hippies who use vast numbers of worms to compost, and then re-use, their own waste? Aren't they now major contributors to global-warming, I mean if global warming wasn't imaginary? I tell you, irony does't get much richer and delighful than that.
Watching stupid liberals try to choose between taxing the burps of Earthworms, and encouraging their use in pointless, but popular with hippies, composting operations would be fun as it would likely make their smallish, developmentaly delayed heads explode.
It's always entertaining to watch a dispicable liberal get p3wned, so head on over to HumanEvents and check it out.
