From 'round the sphere today...
China (and Russia and much of Europe) want to end the Dollar as the global reserve currency. Meanwhile, our new Treasury Secretary, Timmy G., defines the meaning of "amatuer hour" and gives the impression he agrees...and the dollar plunges on currency exchanges. (Meanwhile, "The One" sees no threat to the dollar).
A congressional Democrat is actually proposing what amounts to a federal government bailout for the newspaper industry. Yes, liberal fishwrap bailed out at your expense. And if you think most newspapers are liberal now, wait until they have to rely on tax breaks from government to survive.
How this happened I have no idea, but a reporter for the Associated Press actually ran a "fact check" piece on Obama the day after his press conference this week. The article pointed out some "inconvenient truths" such as Obama's false claim that his budget projections are in line with what "blue chip forecasters out there are saying." Which might be the reason for this headline: "Obama turns to Web to take questions from public".
Ann Coulter says that "Gordon Gekko is a Democrat" in her latest column. Pointing out that the Wall Stree "fat cat" types, so often thought of as Republicans, actually gave overwhelmingly to Democrats in the recent election, (with Obama and Hillary besting McCain by three and one million dollars respectively). This was especially the case for employers of the big firms that have been bailed out over the past year.
The decline of "old media continues. Newsbusters points out that the ratings for the "Big 3" news programs have continued their decline (after a slight bump during the election season). I'm crying inside...no, really.
