and that is a good thing. It is time to expose these idiots for what they are.
After Robertson claimed that the people of Haiti got what they deserve for their “pact with the devil” many turned on him.
On his program Don Imus said “You know, I’m not sure whether sometimes I’m ambivalent about whether I support the death penalty or not. I guess I do if I didn’t have to do it, but in his case (Robertson), I’d pull the switch on him myself. I mean he should be put to sleep. How does that contribute anything? It’s insanity.”
During a White House press briefing Robert Gibbs said ”It never ceases to amaze, that in times of amazing human suffering, somebody says something that could be so utterly stupid”.
Keith Olbermann said the following on his show (Countdown) ”Even the worst of us in this political mosh pit of the early 21st century can ..continue reading
Haiti was hit with a 7.0 magnitude earthquake. Estimates of the missing and dead are exceeding 100,000 in a country of 3 million people. Relief agencies are struggling to help those in need with many of their own also directly impacted by this disaster.
Along comes Pat Robertson and says:
“Something happened a long time ago in Haiti and people might not want to talk about it. They were under the heel of the French. Napoleon the Third and whatever. And they got together and swore a pact to the devil. They said, “We will serve you if you get us free from the prince.” True story. And so the devil said, “OK, it’s a deal.” They kicked the French out, the Haitians revolted and got themselves free.”
“But ever since, they have been cursed by one thing after the other, desperately poor.”
Pat Robertson has a long history of blaming disasters ..continue reading

There is an article in the New York Times that makes you wonder who is in charge and why is it so difficult for some in positions of responsibility to think before they act.
According to the Times “New York City officials destroyed tons of new, unworn clothing and footwear last year that had been seized in raids on counterfeit label operations, abandoning a practice of giving knockoff garments to groups that help the needy.”
The “clothing (that was destroyed) includes winter jackets, shirts, pants and underwear.”
“Until last April, the city had turned over some of the seized goods to not-for-profit organizations, including World Vision and the New York City Clothing Bank, which removed labels and defaced the counterfeit trademarks, then distributed the clothing to aid groups across the city.”
“A spokesman for the Police Department said that no one asked for the knockoffs in 2009 —an explanation that was bewildering to the operators of the clothing bank, ..continue reading

No not that Palin.
Bloomberg reports that 19 year old Bristol Palin has registered to set up a public relations firm, BSMP LLC.
This twit who has been running around the country preaching abstinence after having a baby with then boyfriend Levi Johnston beleives she is qualified to run a PR firm.
Who would hire her? There are probably enough Palin lovers out there to make sure she doesn’t fail.
Only in the USA. I love this country.
according to a study by Marjorie Gunnoe, professor of Psychology at Calvin College in Michigan.
Gunnoe questioned 2600 participants for the study and found that children who are smacked before the age of six perform better at school when they are teenagers. They are also more likely to do voluntary work and to want to go to college than those who have never been physically disciplined. But the study also revealed that children who are smacked after the age of six were more likely to exhibit behavioural problems, such as being involved in fights.
Penelope Leach, a parenting expert disagrees with the findings ’No good can come from hitting a child,’ she said. “I do not buy this idea that children will learn positive behavior from being smacked. The law says adults hitting adults is wrong and children should be protected in the same way. Children are people too.”
Right on. Keep your hands off the kids.
