Paul Harvey passes away

harvey_bushHello Americans, This Is Paul Harvey

And with those words, ABC News legend, Paul Harvey, begins another broadcast.

Paul Harvey is the most well-known newsman in the world. He established the gold standard for news and commentary over 50 years ago. Today the legendary broadcaster is still going strong with his morning and noon News & Comment and his tantalizing broadcast, The Rest of the Story.

Paul Harvey has passed away.

From wiki

Paul Harvey Aurandt (September 4, 1918 – February 28, 2009), better known as Paul Harvey, was an American radio broadcaster for the ABC Radio Networks. He broadcasted News and Comment on weekday mornings and mid-days, and at noon on Saturdays, as well as his famous The Rest of the Story segments. His listening audience was estimated at 22 million people a week. Harvey liked to say he was raised in radio newsrooms.[1]

The most noticeable features of Harvey’s idiosyncratic delivery was his dramatic pauses, quirky intonations and his folksiness. A large part of his success stemmed from the seamlessness with which he segued from his monologue into reading commercial messages. He explained his enthusiastic support of his sponsors as such: “I am fiercely loyal to those willing to put their money where my mouth is.”[citation needed]

On Sept. 12, 2008, after the death of George Putnam, Harvey became the oldest syndicated radio personality in America.[citation needed]

On Feb. 28, 2009, Paul Harvey, America’s oldest radio personality died at the age of 90.

RIP.

OMG, another freaking tax cheat

Is there any wonder why obama and his minions don’t mind raising taxes?  They don’t plan to pay them.

Today’s tax cheater? None other than Gregory Craig.

Operating a business out of one’s home in D.C. requires a home occupation permit and registration with the city’s division of corporations. Additionally, the government has instituted a new requirement for business license permits.

A spokesman at the Washington D.C. Department of Consumer and Regulatory Affairs told Gawker that no one has ever sought any kind of permit or registration for a business under the name of Noyes Graphics or at the Craigs’ home address. By not registering Craig may have avoided local business taxes.

Private investigator Joseph Culligan looked into business records for Noyes Graphics, which is run out of the Craigs’ home, and found Dun & Bradstreet records showing substantial annual sales, a Yellow Pages listing, and an online listing inviting customers to visit the business at her home address (now posted on Webofdeception.com).

And a source within the D.C. government has told Culligan that authorities have begun a full-fledged investigation into Noyes Graphics. (The spokesman would not confirm or deny the existence of an investigation.)  source (gawker)

Shameless bastids!

I spoke too soon

With the announcement of the messiah’s 2010 tax-spend-borrow-spend-some-more budget, I made this observation:

I didn’t think it possible, but it looks like we’ve found something that democrats enjoy more than killing babies.

I stand corrected. Link

Citi nationalized

from the Times

In its most daring bid yet to stabilize Citigroup, one of the nation’s largest and most troubled financial institutions, the Treasury Department announced on Friday that it would vastly increase its ownership of the struggling company.

After two multibillion-dollar lifelines failed to shore up Citigroup, the government will increase its stake in the company to 36 percent from 8 percent.

As part of the deal, Citi will shake up its board so that it has a majority of independent directors, Richard Parsons, the bank’s chairman, said in a statement.

Under the deal, Citibank said that it would offer to exchange common stock for up to $27.5 billion of its existing preferred securities and trust preferred securities at a conversion price of $3.25 a share, a 32 percent premium over Thursday’s closing price.

Investors are voting with their dollars. Pre-market price is around $1.40.

The great deleveraging continues unabated.

Obama’s tax and spend two-step

Today, President Obama released the outline of his $4 Trillion budget for FY 2010, revealing the true nature of the radical left, and their plans to dismantle free market capitalism. It’s an old song and dance called the tax and spend two step.

President Barack Obama is sending Congress a budget Thursday that projects the government’s deficit for this year will soar to $1.75 trillion, reflecting efforts to pull the nation out of a deep recession and a severe financial crisis.

Obama’s budget overview will call for between $3.5 trillion and $4 trillion in spending in fiscal year 2010 and creates space for up to $750 billion in additional bank bailout funds this year – money that hasn’t been requested and the administration hopes will not be necessary to stabilize the still-reeling financial system.

I didn’t think it possible, but it looks like we’ve found something that democrats enjoy more than killing babies.

Cell phone pops corn (and I don’t care)

Mrs. Nuke just sent me an email with this video attached.
I think the cell phone folks have some ‘splainin’ to do.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Actually, I do care. I just couldn’t help thinking about that song

(Tune in next week: the video inspired by the tune “A Frog went a Courtin”)

The new liberal spin: 9/11 hijackers -“dumb luck”

I thought it curious that the new DHS secretary totally avoided mentioning “terrorism” and “September 11” in her prepared remarks to Congress. Link

Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano avoids mention of the terms “terrorism” or “Sept. 11” in remarks prepared for her first congressional testimony since taking office, signaling a sharp change in tone from her predecessors.

The explanation may be found in this article at Slate: The Terrorists-Are-Dumb Theory
(Don’t mistake these guys for criminal masterminds)
Here is an excerpt:

The 9/11 attacks were heralded as the harbinger of a new era of foreign-based terrorism in the United States. What if they were really a fluke?

Al-Qaida’s successful elimination of the Twin Towers, part of the Pentagon, four jetliners, and nearly 3,000 innocent lives makes the terror group seem, in hindsight, diabolically brilliant. But when you review how close the terrorists came to being exposed by U.S. intelligence, 9/11 doesn’t look like an ingenious plan that succeeded because of shrewd planning. It looks like a stupid plan that succeeded through sheer dumb luck.

The hubris and arrogance of the new administration will be their undoing. Let us hope that it will not be the republic’s undoing.
