Herman: You Had No Choice: Si-O-Friggin Nada; Has Alec Lost His Mind?, Muslim Brotherhood Wins; The Occupiers Cost Cities Big Time; Former Occupier Gets Wall Street Job; College Bowls Getting Re-Dick-U-Lus

"There was a time in this country when an overconfident f^ckhead like me could graduate and skate right into a job he didn't deserve."---From The Onion about the difficulty young people are having finding a job.

  • Allow me to get one important point out of the way right now. On this blog, we will refer to the Christmas Season as the Christmas Season not the holiday season. If that offends you, SI-O-FRIGGIN NADA!!!

  • Speaking of SI-O-Friggin Nada, I could be referring to Herman Cain. Let's face facts. Regardless of the questionable claims against him, he was screwing up in the last month or more with some embarrassing gaffes. In addition, since he's a black conservative, he would never get the passes that the likes of Bill Clinton received from the media (as far as I can recall, I don't believe Herman was ever accused of using a vagina as a humidor). And, yes, Slo Joe Biden's gaffes stretch from here to Iraq. But, as they always say, that's just Joe being Joe. No, that's Joe being a democrat. The media would never tolerate the high number of gaffes from a conservative, let alone a conservative man or woman.
  • If any Republican were president now and there was data like what is to follow, we would never hear the end of it. A report from Crain's NY Business, NYC has handed out $3.5 billion in food stamps, up from $1.5 billion in 2009. Also, the number of children living in families that are struggling with hunger rose 37% from 2008 to 2010.

  • It's no secret that Alec Baldwin is a big time Hollywood Lefty (although he plays a great Republican on 30 Rock. I've always liked his acting). But perhaps hell has frozen over. "Page Six" in the NY Post is reporting Alec said, "If Romney is the nominee, we have to get behind him and support that person to be president and give him constructive criticism." (Alec, I'm sure you're not referring to the type of criticism you gave your daughter several years ago). It should take Alec's publicist just a matter of minutes to come out with a statement that might look like this, "Mr. Baldwin never made such a statement. He was taken out of context. At this time, he has nothing more to add."

  • "Muslim Brotherhood Wins In Egyptian Elections," is the headline in USA Today. Don't say many of us didn't warn you. And why is that bad news? The Muslim Brotherhood inspired Osama bin Laden and many other al-Qaeda thugs. As I've written on countless occasions, the Arab Spring is a myth.
  • The cost of the cleanup of Occupy Wall Street sites has cost cities and municipalities big time. In Philadelphia alone, it's estimated the cost amounted to over $17,000 a day. In other cities, the costs exceeded a million bucks. And who will pick up the cost for these bozos?---the 99% they claim they support.
  • You may have heard that Miley Cyrus also showed support for the Occupiers. This from another 1% of the top 1%.  As Malkin said so well, "In many ways, Miley and the Occu-mob are a match made in heaven. Vacuous, Hypocritical, Entitled, Vain, Nihilist. Exhibitionist Coddled. Forever adolescent..."(and I don't even know what half those words mean).  Oh, did you hear? You can now purchase Occupy gear. Capitalism looks good to somebody.
  • And if you never heard of Tacy Postert, you will now. She's a former Zucottii Park occupier. But she gave that up for a job on Wall Street. Yep, she was hired by a Wall Street firm last week (NY Post).
  • On top of all this Occupy news, a group of NYC Occupiers are angry at the NYPD. According to their claim, cops at the 7th Precinct on the Lower East Side ate the pizza they ordered while they were in police custody. And that's a problem?
  • College Bowls are getting ridiculous. Here's proof---names of some of the Bowls: The Idaho Potato Bowl, The Poinsettia Bowl, The Insight Bowl,  The BBVA Compass Bowl (say friggin what?) and the Fight Hunger Bowl (have you seen the size of those lineman recently?).
  • While we're on football, I need to make an observation about Aaron Rodgers. While I'm a big Steelers fan, I admire this guy's skills. This guy is almost like the perfect quarterback. Even someone else made the observation that he has the toughness of Jim Kelly and Ben, the accuracy of Joe Montana and the flame-throwing release of Dan Marino. On top of all that, he's one smart dude on the football field. He's so good that fans at Green Bay keep asking, Favre who?
Don't forget to read Dedicated to Heroes---we honor Pearl Harbor heroes and survivors this week.
