The Rev. Al Sharpton held a press conference today to blast Tiger Woods for the lack of diversity among his mistresses. Sharpton claims that the lack of African-American women among Woods’ harem will have a negative affect on the black community, specifically young black girls.
“Why is it that a man who calls himself black can’t bring himself to cheat on his wife with a black woman?” said Sharpton, speaking to a group of supporters in Harlem. “What does it say to young black girls everywhere when you pass them over? Shame on you, Tiger Woods. What would your daddy say?”
Sharpton, who has long championed taking black women as mistresses, said that today’s black athletes need to stop neglecting black women when it comes to extramarital affairs, and should follow the examples of positive black role models such as Jesse Jackson and Martin Luther King, Jr., both of whom cheated on their wives with black women. Sharpton also stressed that cheating with African-American women would help the black community financially by giving black girls the chance to sell their stories to tabloids and gossip magazines.
Added Sharpton, “I’m not asking you to not cheat on your wives, I’m just asking you to give back to your own community.”

I don't know if this is the answer, but I certainly like the message.
Rep. Anna Eshoo (D-Calif.) is no longer alone her quest to bring down the volume of loud TV commercials. Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) has joined in the crusade to keep ads from blasting us out of our living rooms every 10 minutes.Just watch out for them to try to tack on ObamaNationalizedCare and Cap&Tax as amendments.
The bills--both called the Commercial Advertisement Loudness Mitigation (or CALM) Act--are crowd pleasers. Eshoo has 62 co-sponsors. The bill easily passed the House Subcommittee on Communications, Technology and the Internet in October and then by the full Commerce Committee last month. The bill is expected to hit the House floor today.

Oil producers, consumers in secret talks to replace $
"Secret meetings have already been held by finance ministers and central bank governors in Russia, China, Japan and Brazil to work on the scheme, which will mean that oil will no longer be priced in dollars," said the report, adding that France had also been involved in the talks.Well, it's not that secret. China alone could dump its dollars and cause a global meltdown, themselves included. They know better and are dumping dollars slowly and quietly. It won't take too much to start that snowball of a problem.
If the plan materializes, analysts say, it could be a major blow to the US economy, already suffering from an unprecedented downturn.Yes, quite a MAJOR blow. Team Obama won't let a crisis go to waste. Maybe another "bailout" for the American people and the government will own ya just like GM. It would be a CRISIS and dissent is no longer patriotic, you racist pig!
Earlier in September, World Bank President said the United States should not take for granted the dollar's status as preeminent global reserve currency because other options are emerging.If you have the cash you really should invest it in gold/metals before it's too late. Your cash won't be very useful compared to the value of gold or silver.
Remember the malaise of the Carter I Administration, you ain't seen nothin' yet!!!

I ate the liver, saute with a bit of salt and pepper, fresh (I actually cooked it before I finished cleaning the grouse) before it disintegrates; it was so delicious.
I gave the grouse (with heart and gizzard) to my dad as a birthday present for him to enjoy!

"...the Prime Minister was forced to dash through the kitchens of the UN in New York to secure a few minutes “face time” with President Obama after five requests for a sit-down meeting were rejected by the White House."
"...the American President treats the British Prime Minister with casual contempt. The President’s graceless behaviour is unforgivable. As most members of the Cabinet would confirm, it’s not a barrel of laughs having to sit down for a chat with Gordon Brown. But that’s not the point. Mr Obama owes this country a great deal for its unflinching commitment to the American-led war in Afghanistan but seems incapable of acknowledging the fact. You might have thought that after the shambles of Mr Brown’s first visit to the Obama White House - when there was no joint press conference and the President’s “gift” to the Prime Minister was a boxed DVD set - lessons would have been learned. Apparently not."
This must all be Dubya's fault!!! How embarrassing! How woooouuuud.
