Death By a Thousand Cuts

Posted by redsatellite on March 10, 2009

I think old Ling Chi and the Chinese were on to something. These days, every liberal rag in America is suffering from this slow form of torture. But then again, it couldn’t happen to a nicer bunch of pandering invertebrates. Two days ago, the New York Times had to sell their building to stay afloat. Yesterday, the leftwing proselytizers over at the San Francisco Chronicle had to make a deal with the devil (err…I mean union) to keep their newspaper alive.

San Francisco Chronicle has reached a tentative agreement with its largest union on contract concessions, a key step in keeping the newspaper from being sold or closed, officials announced Monday.

The Chronicle told employees last month that the paper was at risk if it did not stop bleeding millions. Its closing would leave San Francisco as the first U.S. metropolis without a major daily paper.

Staff members at the Seattle Post-Intelligencer received similar news recently, with Hearst ownership saying the paper would be closed or turned into an Internet-only publication.

Similar financial pressures caused the
Detroit Free Press and Detroit News to announce in December that they would become the first major metropolitan newspapers in the United States to end daily home delivery. The owners of the Philadelphia Inquirer and Daily News filed for bankruptcy last month because of a huge debt load.

Secular progressive newspapers are hemorrhaging money. And one by one…these leftwing diatribes are going down. As far as I’m concerned, it couldn’t happen….soon enough. Today, they’re only rearranging the deck chairs on their ship:

The Titanic.

Global Warming Rages Through Kentucky

Posted by redsatellite on February 2, 2009

Al Gore, that gifted clairvoyant of the environment, may have a tough time selling his schtick in the state of Kentucky.

Utility crews renewed work in subfreezing temperatures Saturday in their effort to put the power back on for nearly a million customers left in the dark by an ice storm that crippled parts of several states this week.

Thousands of people in ice-caked Kentucky awoke in motels and shelters, asked to leave their homes by authorities who said emergency teams in some areas were too strapped to reach everyone in need of food, water and warmth.

Dozens of deaths have been reported and many people are pleading for a faster response to the power outages. About 536,000 homes and businesses across Kentucky were without power, down from more than 600,000 the largest outage in state history, surpassing the damage last year from the remnants of Hurricane Ike.

Doris Hemingway, 78, spent three days bundled in blankets to ward off the cold in her Leitchfield mobile home. News that it could take up to six weeks for power to be restored sent Hemingway and his husband, Bill, into a shelter at a local high school.

“I’d pray awhile and I’d cry awhile,” Doris Hemingway said. “It’s the worst I’ve ever seen.”

Hey… Al lives right next door in Tennessee! I think it’s high time Al Gore drove a Zamboni over to Kentucky and warned them about Global Warming.

Don’t you?

Memo To Al Gore: Americans Could Care Less About You

Posted by redsatellite on January 23, 2009

I’ve seen polls on the subject of Global Warming before…but this one….well this one takes the (frozen) cake:

As Barack Obama takes office, the public’s focus is overwhelmingly on domestic policy concerns – particularly the economy. Strengthening the nation’s economy and improving the job situation stand at the top of the public’s list of domestic priorities for 2009. Meanwhile, the priority placed on issues such as the environment, crime, illegal immigration and even reducing health care costs has fallen off from a year ago.

Fallen? Uh…you can’t fall any further than DEAD LAST.

Look at ALL the issues ahead of global warming. Trade policy? Lobbyists? I’m surprised that getting rid of pesky cockroaches didn’t rank above global warming.
So the lesson here is: Give it a rest- leave your Global Hoax alone.

Global Warming Rages Through Michigan

Posted by redsatellite on January 15, 2009

Good news! Polar Bears can have their pick of cities and states to settle in. Yep, they’ve got quite a number….like Michigan for example.

Frigid air gripped cities from the Canadian border to Florida on Wednesday, with some cities posting record lows.

Records were posted in the Michigan cities of Flint, at 19 below, and Saginaw, 10 below, and in parts of the Lower Mississippi Valley, where places like Hot Springs and Monticello, Arkansas, were in the low 20s, said Andrew Orrison, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service.

If you live in Flint, MI….you really really…(oh heck one more) really need to move. Not only are you freezing your butt off….you DON’T HAVE A JOB. So seriously, why are you there? Are you addicted to pain?

And Hot Springs, AK? I’m sure the city is struggling to convince tourists to come jump in their springs. I mean c’mon! Why would you vacation in HOT SPRINGS, if it’s frozen over?

Wait…I got it…it just occurred to me: Polar Bears could visit.

Global Warming Rages Through North Dakota

Posted by redsatellite on January 14, 2009

The blistering heat caused by Global Warming has now reached North Dakota. Ruh roh. Uh….and it ain’t pretty.

Blistering temperatures and winds battered parts of the upper Midwest Tuesday, delivering some states the coldest weather in decades. On the heels of a blizzard that barreled into the Northern Plains, temperatures dropped to minus 18 degrees Fahrenheit in Minneapolis, Minnesota.National Weather Service.

In Grand Forks, North Dakota, the weather was severe enough to break a record temperature from 1979, with minus 37 degrees, according to the National Weather Service.

Now wait just a Climate Change minute…I thought the oceans were going to rise and the polar bears were going to drown? Hmmm- maybe the Polar Bears can MIGRATE SOUTH to Grand Forks.

Liberal Poll-emics

Posted by redsatellite on October 29, 2008

Meanwhile at the pseudo-venerable Washington Post, liberals being liberals, they’re discussing the VALIDITY of all these national polls that show Barack Obama with an insurmountable lead. As we close in on the Big Day, the secular progressives are double and triple checking the data….just to make sure.

“We believe it is a very close race, and something that is frankly very winnable,” Sarah Simmons, director of strategy for the McCain campaign, said yesterday. Few analysts outside the McCain campaign appear to share this view.

And pollsters this time around will not make the mistake that the Gallup organization made 60 years ago — ending their polling more than a week before the election and missing a last-minute surge in support for Truman. Every day brings dozens of new state and national presidential polls, a trend that is expected to continue up to Election Day.

Heaven forbid, were McCain to somehow pull this one out of the fire. Of course, liberals have quickly forgotten how they manipulated the early Exit Polls in 2004– spreading the rumor that John Kerry was WINNING.

Still, there appears to be an undercurrent of worry among some polling professionals and academics. One reason is the wide variation in Obama leads: Just yesterday, an array of polls showed the Democrat leading by as little as two points and as much as 15 points. The latest Washington Post-ABC News tracking poll showed the race holding steady, with Obama enjoying a lead of 52 percent to 45 percent among likely voters.

Don’t you worry little liberals…the media is on your side. The fix is in. You will be taking the day off anyway…so go ahead and party- party like it’s 1999.

Al Gore is Snowing Us Again

Posted by redsatellite on October 11, 2008

Meanwhile….up in Idaho…it’s SNOWING. Yah, looks like all that Global Warming has denizens of the great northwest dreaming of a white– uhh- HALLOWEEN!

Boise gets earliest snow on record
Valley shivers as winter weather makes a premature appearance

Big snow flakes fell early Friday evening, turning Downtown Boise into a giant snow globe for people on their way home from work. The snow caught many people off guard, including this bicyclist heading down Idaho Street between 8th and 9th around 5:45 p.m. Across the Treasure Valley, tree branches heavy with wet, snow-covered leaves fell on power lines, causing scattered power outages.

This is the earliest measurable snowfall in Boise since recordkeeping began in 1898, according to the National Weather Service.

1898? ….Heavens to Bing Crosby! Why knock me over with a snowball. Remind me to thank Al…I may have to make that trip to Sun Valley afterall….hmmm…maybe I’ll go- this FRIDAY.

The Company You Keep

Posted by redsatellite on October 7, 2008

A simple question really. Should Barack Obama be judged by the company he keeps? I think it is very important…it certainly is telling.

1. Jeremiah Wright
2. William Ayers
3. Tony Rezko
4. ACORN (heck..this is a TEAM of felonious organizers and miscreants)

And this from a man who is all about Hope and Change? Memo to America: he’s running for PRESIDENT. We should all HOPE, that he CHANGES.

I’d like to think Americans are smarter than that….but this time…more than any other– I’m not so sure. If you go by all the recent polls…..conservatives have no chance. Zero. No chance in Hell. Sadly, America will not be changing for the better.

I hope Americans, at least the majority, understand this.

Keep Drinking Louisiana

Posted by redsatellite on September 3, 2008

Mayor Ray Nagin. You made no sense three years ago…and you make no sense now. My advice to Louisiana residents? Yep….keep drinking ’till he does.

The picture’s not as good as we thought it would be,” Nagin said almost 36 hours after Hurricane Gustav roared into the state with 110 mph winds.

SAY WHAT? 4 days ago, you said it was the ‘mother of all storms’….and the ‘storm of the century’. Which would make it a rather bleak picture, don’t you think? So which is it…you choco-latte?

Building a Better Cliche

Posted by redsatellite on August 27, 2008

Laddy– what a great idea. An Irish bookie is laying odds on Obama. Only, it’s not what you think:

Irish bookmaker Paddy Power says Sen. Barrack Obama (D-Ill.) is the undisputed master of cliches this election season, and his well-known mantra — “Change” – is sure to show up in Thursday’s speech when he accepts the Democratic presidential nomination.

The odds are 10 to 1 it will, the Dublin-based oddsmaker said.

10 to 1? I think that’s wayyyyyyyyyyyyyy too generous. Figure more like…. 5 to 4 or 3 to 2.

Which of the following cliches will Obama mention first during his acceptance speech on Thursday? “I’m fired up” is Power’s favorite, at 6-to-1 odds, along with John F. Kennedy’s “Forgive your enemies, but never forget their names,” which is a less-likely 100-to-1 shot.

Other contenders, at 12-to-1 odds, include: “I’d like to thank my wife”; “as I stand here today”; “fundamental belief”; “defining moment”; and “God Bless America.”

Those are all good. But…’defining moment’? at….12 to 1? I need to call this guy. That’s my winner….I could make some fast money here.

At 14-to-1 odds — “let me be clear”; “war on terror”; “politics of hope”; and “common purpose.”

At 16-to-1, “crossroads of history”; “I have a dream”; “pursuit of happiness”; “I’m fired up” and “building a better America.”

At 25-to-1, there’s “we cannot lose hope” -and at 100-to-1, “an eye for an eye only winds up making the whole world blind.”

Wait!…I’ve change my mind. I like that ‘building a better America’. And I’d get BETTER ODDS too.
