"Wise Latina" Not Looking So Smart

A Supreme Court ruling that a group of white firefighters were unfairly discriminated against has quickly turned into a political football -- since the opinion reverses a decision high court nominee Sonia Sotomayor had endorsed in the lower court.


...the ruling quickly became a political football in Washington as Republicans argued it raises serious questions about Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor's judgment -- since the opinion reversed a decision she had endorsed in the lower court. The White House pushed back on the criticism Monday afternoon, saying the opinion should not prove an obstacle to Sotomayor's confirmation.


Justice Anthony Kennedy authored the 5-4 opinion in favor of Ricci and his fellow firefighters.

It included no specific reference to Sotomayor. But Republicans skeptical of Sotomayor swiftly used it to bolster their case that the high court nominee may let her personal views influence her judicial decisions.

"It was quite a rebuke actually to her and the opinion that was rendered," Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., ranking Republican on the Senate Judiciary Committee, told FOX News Radio.

And the spin?

"I don't foresee that this would represent anything that would prevent her a seat on the Supreme Court," White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs said.

Gibbs explained that Sotomayor was clearly following a precedent in ruling in favor of the city of New Haven. He said the Supreme Court was offering a "new interpretation" of part of the Civil Rights Act.

Ri-i-i-ight! And having Black Panthers "guard" voting sites by brandishing billy clubs last November and selecting a woman who thinks Latin woman are smarter than white men simply because they are,..that's NOT racism,...just a "new interpretation" of ethnicity.

MM, Due Mille, or Cockroach Blogging

Gentle readers, this is officially my 2000th post on Blogger.

When I started out in October, 2004, I never thought I'd still be at this. But then again, I never thought my country would be pushed to the brink of Socialism by a TelePrompter-addicted neophyte and his band of sycophants.

More to come,..thousands more to come!

My ONLY Thoughts on Michael Jackson

Over the weekend, I adamantly resisted posting anything about The Gloved Pederast. Then came the Sunday Talking Heads shows and critical mass was reached in the BitterHouse.

I have come to the realization that I know why, in part, most of the civilized world dislikes the US: we, as a collective society, have the attention span of a 10-year old with ADD!

To wit, for the past week, we watched what could have been this generation's Tienanmen Square or Berlin Wall: In Iran, the populace finally realized they were duped by their leaders. People took to the streets. The 21st Century's greatest tool - the global net - was used again and again to usurp I-Am-A-Mad-Jihad's attempts to squelch the revolution. People watched Fox, CeeNoNews and the Hardcore Liberal Network, wondering if our TelePrompter-addicted leader would finally obtain the cojones to turn his Persian open hand into an iron fist,

Then Jackson died and "Neda" was thrown under the wheels of the LA Coroner's van hauling his carcass away.

Revolution? What revolution? Who cares about democracy, MICHAEL JACKSON DIED!!!

I'm willing to bet Farrah Fawcett died before him just to escape the media onslaught.

And I swear, if he becomes some martyr because rumors persist that his doctors led him down the Elvis Presley path, I'LL SCREAM!!

As always,...

(S)He Who Laughs Last,....

In Kosovo just hours ago, Gov. Sarah Palin spoke to a group of servicemen and
answered Sen. John Kerry’s joke that he wished Palin had been the governor who went missing:

“He looked quite frustrated and he looked so sad. I just wanted to reach out to the TV and say ‘John Kerry, why the long face?’”

“We can’t spare this woman. She fights.”

We're Laughing AT You, Kerry,...

Massachusetts Sen. Kerry has joined the fraternity of jokesters using Sarah Palin as a punch line.

Kerry was meeting a group of business and civic leaders in the nation's capital when he decided to play comedian, according to The Boston Herald. He was talking about the disappearance of South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford, the Alaska governor's Republican peer.

"Too bad," he said, "if a governor had to go missing it couldn't have been the governor of Alaska. You know, Sarah Palin."

Kerry's joke came 24 hours before Sanford turned up to admit an affair with a woman living in Argentina, the Herald reported Thursday.

It's not Kerry's first foray into comedy. In 2006 the former presidential candidate apologized for a "botched" joke he made about American soldiers serving in Iraq.

Talking to a group of students in California, Kerry said that people who do not study hard and do their homework will likely "get stuck in Iraq."

His comments elicited strong reactions from Republicans who criticized him for troop-bashing.

A statement from his aides later said the line was aimed at then President Bush and supposed to read: "You end up getting us stuck in a war in Iraq."

Sad Passings,...

Longtime talk-show host Irv Homer died last night at Bryn Mawr Hospital after he was stricken during an appearance at Eastern University in St. Davids. His age is being reported at 86, but public records say he was 85.

Mr. Homer, who lived in Feasterville, had been a longtime talk show host on WWDB from 1975 until its format was flipped in 2000. After that, he joined WBCB in Levittown, hired by Merrill Reese, and did the odd shift on WPHT. Homer hosted an Internet show as recently as Wednesday, and was a contributor to 6ABC's Sunday public-affairs show Inside Story.

A man who relished his nickname as "Evil Irv," he got into the business as a bar owner who liked calling in to talk shows back in the 1960s. He was inducted into the Broadcast Pioneers Hall of Fame and in 1972 ran for vice president as a Libertarian.

His pet project was the Sunshine Foundation, which grants the wishes of terminally and chronically ill children and their families. He was a national vice president.

Farrah Fawcett, the multiple Golden Globe and Emmy-nominated American actress best known for her role as the vivacious Jill Munroe in the 1970s television series “Charlie’s Angels,” died in a Santa Monica hospital. She was 62.

Her spokesman, Paul Bloch, confirmed that the iconic actress died Thursday morning at 9:28 a.m. PDT.

Her long-time partner Ryan O'Neal told People magazine Thursday, "She's gone. She now belongs to the ages ... She's now with her mother and sister and her God. I loved her with all my heart. I will miss her so very, very much. She was in and out of consciousness. I talked to her all through the night. I told her how very much I loved her. She's in a better place now."

Other "Charlie's Angels" stars paid tribute to her.

"Farrah had courage, she had strength, and she had faith. And now she has peace as she rests with the real angels," Jaclyn Smith said.

Said Cheryl Ladd: "She was incredibly brave, and God will be welcoming her with open arms."

Her former producer Craig Nevius told FOXNews.com, "She will be remembered as
the modern Mona Lisa and so much more. I will remember her as my friend."

Fawcett was diagnosed with anal cancer in September 2006 and, despite going into remission and enduring extensive chemotherapy and surgery both in the U.S. and Germany, it was revealed earlier this year that the cancer had spread to her liver. She stopped receiving treatment in May.

Sarkozy: It's French for "GW Bush"


PARIS — President Nicolas Sarkozy said the Muslim burqa would not be welcome in France, calling the full-body religious gown a sign of the "debasement" of women.

In the first presidential address to parliament in 136 years, Sarkozy faced critics who fear the burqa issue could stigmatize France's Muslims and said he supported banning the garment from being worn in public.

"In our country, we cannot accept that women be prisoners behind a screen, cut off from all social life, deprived of all identity," Sarkozy said to extended applause at the Chateau of Versailles, southwest of Paris.

"The burqa is not a religious sign, it's a sign of subservience, a sign of debasement — I want to say it solemnly," he said. "It will not be welcome on the territory of the French Republic."

Dozens of legislators have called for creating a commission to study a possible ban in France, where there is a small but growing trend of wearing the full-body garment despite a 2004 law forbidding it from being worn in public schools.

France has Western Europe's largest Muslim population, an estimated 5 million people, and the 2004 law sparked fierce debate both at home and abroad.

Even the French government has been divided over the issue, with Immigration Minister Eric Besson saying a full ban would only "create tensions," while junior minister for human rights Rama Yade said she was open to a ban if it was aimed at protecting women forced to wear the burqa.

The terms "burqa" and "niqab" often are used interchangeably in France. The former refers to a full-body covering worn largely in Afghanistan with only a mesh screen over the eyes, whereas the latter is a full-body veil, often in black, with slits for the eyes.

A leading French Muslim group, the French Council for the Muslim Religion, has warned against studying the burqa, saying it would "stigmatize" Muslims.

Sarkozy was due to host a state dinner Monday with Sheik Hamad Bin Jassem Al Thani of Qatar, where women wear Islamic head coverings in public — whether while shopping or driving cars.

A Sad Passing,.....

6abc is mourning the loss of Action News Sports Director Gary Papa, who passed away Friday, June 19, 2009.

Gary was born in Buffalo, New York, in 1954. Upstate New York would be his home for most of the next 27 years.

Gary went to Cornell University as an undergraduate, and actually considered a career as an attorney. He even earned his law degree at the University of Buffalo Law School.

But that's when the combination of sports and broadcasting got its hold on Gary. He went into television in Buffalo, and in Steubenville, Ohio.

In April 1981, Gary Papa came to Action News and the Delaware Valley. Gary's first report was from Milwaukee, where the Sixers were playing the Bucks in the NBA playoffs.

Its the COUNTY of Philadelphia, Not the STATE,...

Two key provisions of Philadelphia's most recent attempt to impose local gun controls - banning "straw purchase" of handguns and banning assault weapons - were invalidated today by a state appeals court.

Following a series of rulings that doomed previous Philadelphia gun control laws, the Commonwealth Court held that the state Supreme Court ruled in 1996 that only the state legislature - not municipalities - has the authority to enact gun laws.

But the 6-1 majority of the Commonwealth Court affirmed part of the 2008 decision of then-Philadelphia Common Pleas Court Judge Jane Cutler Greenspan and allowed three other provisions to remain in effect.

Greenspan, now on the Pennsylvania Supreme Court, had ruled in those three provisions that the National Rifle Association and other challengers of the Philadelphia laws were not affected seriously enough to have legal standing to sue.

Those provisions - requiring reporting of lost or stolen handguns, allowing temporary seizure of guns by police and barring gun ownership by people subject to "protections from abuse" orders - remain in effect in Philadelphia.

Richard Feder, chief of appeals in the city Law Department, said his office is "seriously considering" appealing the two invalidated provisions to the state Supreme Court.

Feder said the reporting provision is now in effect and the other two have not yet been implemented because they are legally complex and require the city to draft and adopt regulations.

In invalidating the assault weapon and straw purchase provisions, Judge Bonnie Brigance Leadbetter, the president judge of Commonwealth Court called the precedent set by the Supreme Court in 1996 "crystal clear."

Judge Doris Smith-Ribner wrote separately, concurring and dissenting from the majority opinion.

Smith-Ribner wrote that she did not believe the Supreme Court had totally barred local gun control and said a case could be made for provisions of the Philadelphia ordinance regulating assault weapons and the "straw purchase" of guns for other people not legally permitted to own firearms.

The five city ordinances, enacted in April 2008, were immediately challenged in court by the National Rifle Association, National Shooting Sports Foundation, Pennsylvania Association of Firearms Retailers, two local firearms retailers and four individuals.

"It's signficant," said Joseph Grace, executive director of the gun-control group CeaseFire PA, of the Commonwealth Court's decision.

Grace noted that the city's lost-or-stolen reporting ordinance is now the only one in Pennsylvania that has passed court muster - despite a failure to enact a similar law last year in the legislature.

"This decision simply puts the ball back where it should be - in the General Assembly," Grace said. "Cities and mayors have been taking action in the absence of any action from the General Assembly."

Since Philadelphia passed its gun control package in April 2008, Grace said, six Pennsylvania cities and one borough have enaced ordinances requiring the reporting of lost or stolen handguns: Allentown, Reading, Pottsville, Pittsburgh, Lancaster and Harrisburg and Wilkinsburg Borough in Allegheny County.

The NRA recently challenged the Pittsburgh ordinance in Allegheny County Common Pleas Court, Grace said.

Funny...True, but Funny

At least a half-dozen phony "Notice to the Public" signs were slipped into display cases on trains of the Frankford-Market El, SEPTA confirmed yesterday.

One or more hoaxsters - or jokesters - started posting the signs as early as last week, SEPTA spokesman Andrew Busch said. Soon, pictures of the official-looking posters were showing up on blogs, Twitter, and Facebook.

The messages broadly lampooned the transit system and its riders, so SEPTA had the notices removed.

"We do find the message very offensive in general," not just the anti-SEPTA parts, Busch said.

"The Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority (SEPTA) is committed to providing non-discriminatory transportation services to all of its passengers, including schizophrenics, drug addicts, Irish Catholics, hipsters, . . . gentrifying transplants, raging maniacs, tourists, obnoxious Penn students, corner boys, pimps, drunk rich kids who still think Old City is cool, and terrified suburbanites who tremble with unease at the sight of everyone.

"Any person who is or seeks to be a patron of any SEPTA public vehicle shall be entitled to the same depressing experience of loud cell phones, obese people eating McDonalds, parents telling their toddlers to "Shut the . . . Up!", and a constant inch-deep layer of urine-soaked trash and debris.

"No person or group of persons shall be discriminated against on any grounds with regard to routing, scheduling, or quality of transportation service furnished by SEPTA, with the following exceptions - race, color, socioeconomic status, and proximity to the suburbs.

"Any person who has experienced a cleaner, more efficient, more extensive, and better managed public transportation system in the U.S. (e.g. most if not all) can feel free to notify SEPTA about potential improvements, which shall promptly be ignored."

Potheads Calling the Kettle Blacklisted?

Or, follow liberal doctrine or be silenced!

From Ann McIlhenney:

Nowadays blacklists are a silent way of trying to destroy people and their careers.

And that suits those doing the blacklisting particularly if they call themselves liberal and claim to care about censorship and human rights.

But some liberals forget to keep quiet and make public what is really going on.

Richard Lindzen is an MIT physicist whose scientific investigations make him sceptical about Global Warming. But his significant scientific pedigree does not matter to those less qualified who believe otherwise. He recently told the GreenHellBlog that after a house fire he approached a Boston art appraiser to value an antique rug.

However it was amusing only until we asked a number of US companies to work for us. We needed companies to make DVDs and provide translated subtitles for our new documentary Not Evil Just Wrong. Just like Professor Lindzen it challenges liberal orthodoxy - taking a critical look at environmentalism and Global Warming hysteria.

And just like Professor Lindzen we felt the chill hand of discrimination. One of the companies, in the midst of the biggest recessions in living memory, said "our order was too big" and declined to bid for the contract.

However, the Atlanta based International Services translation company really gave the game away when in an email they explained why they were refusing to provide us with their services.

CEO Sue Ellen Reager stated:

"I have researched your film on the web, and do not see scientific reviews or major press reviews in support (may be too early), and needed that support to assure cooperation from our translators. Because we translate with highly educated people around the world, located in countries like Germany and France, who take Global Warming very seriously, I am fairly sure that several countries will refuse to participate in this project."

In a follow up telephone conversation Ms Reager explained to "you guys in Europe" how the system really worked.

Ms Reager and her company have "worked in Hollywood for years" she explained. Their client list includes CNN, Turner Broadcasting, Google and Microsoft.

Speaking on the phone Ms Reager said that in the email she was "just being nice" to us because we were Europeans and that she was worried that the film might be like some of the "Republican shit" that gets released in the US.

The real problem is with those pesky Republicans in the US who insist on making films that she and Hollywood don't agree with.

Carrot & Schtick

Wait a minute,...don't throw those needles at me,...just kidding about national Health Care!

So the Obamessiah spoke before yet another adoring crowd today....

Scratch that,..not everyone in the AMA bowed before His Holiness:

CHICAGO (June 15) -- President Barack Obama bluntly told doctors Monday he is against their highest legislative priority — limiting malpractice awards — and earned a smattering of boos from an audience he was here to court for his health care overhaul plans.
Pushing anew to reshape the nation's health care delivery system and extend coverage to the millions who don't have it, Obama went before the annual meeting of the American Medical Association and took on others who take issue with parts of his plan as well.

And if this approach doesn't work, the next step will be the demonization of all doctors (except the beloved abortionists) by the MSM. Right-Wing Extremist MD, anyone?

Pop Culture to the Nth Degree?

The newest buzzword in this recession? "Funemployed" As gleefully reported by the LA Times:

This new-found laziness is explained away:

While millions of Americans struggle to find work as they face foreclosures and bankruptcy, others have found a silver lining in the economic meltdown. These happily jobless tend to be single and in their 20s and 30s. Some were laid off. Some quit voluntarily, lured by generous buyouts.

Buoyed by severance, savings, unemployment checks or their parents, the funemployed do not spend their days poring over job listings. They travel on the cheap for weeks. They head back to school or volunteer at the neighborhood soup kitchen. And at least till the bank account dries up, they're content living for today.

The Times even found someone to explain away these lazy losers:

"Recession gives people permission to be unemployed," said David Logan, a professor at USC's Marshall School of Business. "Why not make use of the time and go do something fun?"

So what some are calling "funemployment" are really covering up for the 20-somethings that haven't had their college-socialism indoctrination worn away by relentless reality and hard work. In the end, the result is simply:

Republicans Finding Their Cojones?

President Barack Obama's hopes for a bipartisan health deal seemed in jeopardy Thursday as GOP senators protested his renewed support for a new public health insurance plan, and a key Democratic chairman declared that such a plan would likely be in the Senate's bill.

A public plan that would compete with private insurers is opposed by nearly all Republicans. Obama long has supported it, but he had avoided going into detail about his health goals, leaving the specifics to Congress and emphasizing hopes for a bipartisan bill.

That changed when Obama released a letter Wednesday to two Senate Democrats saying he believed strongly in the need for a new public plan.

"It wasn't helpful, it wasn't helpful," said Sen. Charles Grassley of Iowa, top Republican on the Senate Finance Committee, which is taking a lead role in crafting a health care overhaul. "Words make a difference. And this made a difference."

"Didn't help. It hurt," said Sen. Mike Enzi of Wyoming, top Republican on the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee.

Added Sen. John Ensign, R-Nev.: "If he wants a bipartisan bill, he has to recognize that a government-run plan doesn't get you to a bipartisan plan." Ensign spoke in an interview following a Senate Finance Committee meeting on the legislation.

The White House spokeswoman for health policy, Linda Douglass, responded: "As the president said in his letter, he remains hopeful that many Republicans will see fit to join with Democrats to enact legislation that will lower health care costs for businesses, families and government."

Seriously,...a 48-hour stomach bug wasn't enough? I opened up yesterday's Parade Magazine to see an advert for this???

Our skilled artisans have perfectly replicated Michelle Obama's Inaugural Ball attire down to the very last detail. Her white, one-shouldered chiffon evening dress has been hand-tailored and features all of the touches that made the original gown so spellbinding.

We've also expertly re-created her stunning diamond bangles, drop earrings, and sparkling cocktail ring. The result is an elegant porcelain sculpture that radiates with the First Lady's uncommon strength and beauty.

And the you gotta smack your head against the wall when you read this:

Sorry! This item is currently on backorder and will not be available until October 2009. You may still order this product and we will ship it as soon as it becomes available.

"Found On Road Dead," But At Least Not Bankrupt!

Yeah, so the Obamessiah got to buy a car company today. As far as I'm concerned, I think I got the better deal.

Here's my track record with cars over the last 20 years:

1988-1992 - 1988 Chevy Cavalier
Mileage: Can't remember - I blocked out that nightmare
Cause of Death: Euthanasia.
Comments: A track record of poor transmission and fuel injector sensors from day one: kinda sucks when your 5-speed can't get out of third gear! The original muffler rusted out and fell off 13 months after I bought it. The replacement muffler crumped 6 months before I traded it in. Eggshell-thin paint job: seriously, a raw egg was thrown at my car on Mischief night and managed to expose the primer and bare metal under it from the impact, not the acidity of the egg!

1992-2001 - 1992 Ford Tempo
Mileage: ~115,000
Cause of Death: blown transmission
Comments: God, I missed that car! Homely-looking, but rode hard and put away wet more times that legally allowed. Absent the transmission going (as much a fault of the repair shop as age), I easily could have gotten 150,000. Only had one minor issue all those years: a balky fuel injector that needed professional cleaning every third or fourth oil change!

2001-2009 -2001 Ford Taurus SEL
Mileage: 105,500
Cause of Death: Multiple System Failure
Comments: What the BitterMom called my "luxury car." Has some sensors issues early on, then ran like a champ. In the last 6 months, a combination of rust, diminished fuel economy and a bad suspension added up to costing more than the value of the car. Who knows, with a little TLC and some cleaning up by Garnet Ford, someone will give her a good home!

2009-??? - 2009 Ford Fusion
I looked at Honda and Toyota and liked what I saw. My wallet, however, had a different opinion. I saw the Chrysler collapse over six months ago, when other Daimler holdings like American LaFrance fire apparatus, Freightliner trucks, and MedicMaster ambulances started to go Chapter 11. That was enough to make me shy away.

So it came down to the Chevy Malibu and the Fusion. I like them both. They handle well. The look good. The Fusion gets a slightly better fuel economy, but not enough to make a big difference in my wallet.

What turned it for me? Ford, like myself, had the fiscal prudence and judicious forsight not to give in to the Obamessiah's siren song of Socialism to forgive past transgressions and union largesse.

I'm sold on Ford. Are you?
