Today’s Daily Quips are brought to you by the labor unions: destroying American enterprises and beating people up since the Industrial Revolution.
From Breitbart With Love One of the heroes in this upside down world is Andrew Breitbart. I had the privilege to meet him a year ago where he laid out his vision of a world in which conservatives could fight back through the media, be it in Hollywood or abroad. His vision is starting to be realized, as the ACORN videos and their startling effect on the public have shown. He is taking this ACORN story straight to the liberals, all the way up to Eric Holder, a man who seems to have been getting a lot of press coverage recently. Keep fighting the good fight Mr. Breitbart!
Those Loopy Louisianans In a story that reflects all too often the rule rather than the exception, we get the scoop from ABC News on how Mary Landrieu will be bought off for her healthcare vote. First, one can’t help but notice how arcane yet deceptive the language is in the bill. Clearly it is something written by lawyers, intentionally set out to deceive the public. Second, this is how politics works. In its simplest form this case represents bargaining, but in its most nefarious it represents legalized plunder. Third, Glenn Beck did a great job of showing how the DC game works in exposing good ol’ John Murtha last night. American politics makes a mockery of the public, but the public continues to feed at the trough of DC.
The Financial-Political Complex Mr. Corzine, another esteemed former Goldman politician looks to potentially be coming back into the financial fray as CEO of B of A. And he thought governing New Jersey was hard. Big Government picks up on Corzine’s ties to Big Labor, and questions how that might impact his decisions as CEO. As we know, the big financial institutions have always done business with the criminal community-organizers, and I would expect nothing less if Corzine does in fact take the job.
Gangreen Michelle Malkin, another hero in the effort to expose the sheer and utter corruption of this administration specifically and the lefties generally writes about a global warming scandal that has recently come to light. People need to understand what the Green Movement is. It has nothing whatsoever to do with improving the environment. It is about a power grab, plain and simple. There will be a massive wealth transfer to companies that play along with the government in pushing green technology, and to the financial services sector that will make billions in trading revenues from the “carbon market.” The consumers will have to deal with the cruel tax of increases in energy prices, while politicians, energy-producers and bankers will have a field day. I should note that GE is the face of all evil when it comes to this movement. They are also ruining quality programming like The Office and 30 Rock with their green message. Al Gore plugged global warming for a couple of minutes at the end of last night’s 30 Rock for example. And can they please stop with the green NBC peacock logo and green tickers. Shameless, shameless propaganda.
