    Interesting column on Obama’s failed economic policies from Reuters, of all places:

    Since we are coming up on the 4th of July I thought this might interest you folks. Harvard: July 4th Parades Are Right-Wing It must be true it has been researched by “Havaad Man”
    Now it is right wing to be a patriot for crying out loud. It is politically incorrect to recite the Pledge of Allegiance in public.
    Just where in the Hell do we live!!!!????? This is just insane…and frightening.

    The more amusing part of the link above, is that private corporate jets were given a tax break as part of the stimulus.
     
    Bookworm, nurse your child back to health and we’ll carry on in some odd manner.
     
    Oh…speaking of odd – the judge sentenced this thing to only 3 years?!? Well, that should certainly scare the crap out of anyone else trying this – a whole three years.
     
    LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – A California man who conned Chinese immigrants into joining his fake U.S. Army unit was sentenced on Wednesday to three years in prison after he pleaded guilty to counterfeiting and other charges.
    Yupeng Deng gave himself the title “Supreme Commander” when he was running his fictitious unit, and he promised recruits their time in his squad was a path to U.S. citizenship.
    A Chinese national from the Los Angeles suburb of El Monte, Deng convinced over 200 Chinese nationals from around the United States to join, and charged them initiation fees ranging from $300 to $450.
    Deng, 51, pleaded guilty on Wednesday to charges of theft by false pretenses, manufacturing deceptive government documents and counterfeit of an official government seal.
    Investigators also found child pornography when they served a search warrant at his home, and as a result Deng also pleaded guilty to possessing the porn.
    Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Jack Hunt sentenced Deng to three years in prison.
    Deng gave his recruits military uniforms, had them parade in a Los Angeles suburb, and took them to the decommissioned USS Midway aircraft carrier, which is a museum in San Diego, authorities said.
    He called his bogus squad the U.S. Army/Military Special Forces Reserve unit, or MSFR for short.

    And while I am at it I want just say that for once I am in total agreement with Mark Halprin of Time Magazine who, in case you missed it, pronounced BO Plenty a “D*ck” this morning on the Morning Joe show. Even the libs are beginning to catch on.

  • Michael Adams

    Well I  think Halprin was right.  After all, if he walks like a duck, quacks like a duck, he must be a duck.  He did say duck, did he not?
     
    Hope Baby Book is well soon.

    Here’s an interesting video at Breitbart:

    WARNING: This may cause abc to crash into the room screaming about “unaccounted for externalities” and Zach’s head to explode. But at least it will keep them busy as we adults discuss other matters.

    Nice video, Charles M. Was that Zach or ABC lolling beside the pool? My bet is on ABC.

  • Danny Lemieux

    Actually, having finished watching the video, its message will be lost on lemmings.

    Most (97%…a consensus!) of the freeBookworm room groupies will get it, though.

    It’s the migraine curse.  My daughter gets wrenchingly ill with migraines, and the only thing that helps is tincture of time.

  • Charles Martel

    Ymar, we referred to her daughter as her baby because her daughter will always be her baby. My baby son is 26. Danny’s almost fully grown children are his babies. You are still somebody’s baby, at least in the heart.

  • Michael Adams

    Stupid question, but people sometimes overlook the obvious:  Does Baby Book get an aura?  Has she tried caffeine immediately on its appearance? I’ve had more than one friend who got migraines and learned to eliminate them that way.  OTOH, others could only be cured by the tincture of time. I’m glad she’s better.

  • http://bookwormroom.com Bookworm

    My daughter gets auras during, not before, her migraines. I started getting auras for the first time last year, after 35 years without auras I just love them when I do get them because I can often stop the migraine in it’s tracks.

    Bookworm I do hope your baby will be well soon. I am not sure who said it but they will always be your babies. My babies range in age from 40 something to 27 or so. We have a 9 grandbabies and I can assure they are incredible fun each and every one of them.
    I want them to have the same opportunities that I have but I am concerned they will not. The people in these United States have taken for granted what our forefathers literally fought bleed and died for. I do my best to inform them but I fear it falls on deaf ears in that they take for granted the liberties they still have without any thought about what it takes for us to be free. 
    These days they don’t think they have any skin in the venture. They leave it to others to make sure that they will be protected. God bless our military for protecting them. By the way God bless the TSA for removing that 90 some odd year old woman’s diaper, God knows she has a gun in there. Meanwhile we don’t profile. Stupid.
    This one time and only this one time I will address abc and z. You guys need to pull your heads out of the dark space that your heads are in. Get off the Soros machine. Your arguments are purely Marxist. Oh I have read them all. You are plants sure as I am born. In the end we will prevail as we are the citizens of the greatest nation on earth. The United States of America We will not be deterred. There are too many of us.

    Decorum is the requirement here so I will refrain from other comments. Other than to say to the alphabet go somewhere else your Soros BS is just that BS.

    Take it from me, I don’t even bother reading them all. Skim and surf, like John Kerry on a wind runner.

  • bizcor

    Ymarsakar I don’t really read them either. In fact once I see they have weighed in I usually don’t read much further. Invariably they take people off topic, a tactic often used by those who have to try to prove the guilty innocent.

    The responses to A are pretty funny though. Z’s more of an odd bird, so people do bird watching.
