Everyone is talking about the House GOP on immigration. Please, I have a weak stomach today.
Andrea Mitchell is one of the most despicable people on MSNBC because she’s accepted as a real journalist, unlike say Al Sharpton. But she’s nothing but a political hack, it’s a disgrace that NBC features her on “serious” news on their Evening News with Brian Williams or Today Show. Here she and Maria Shriver dish out The 77-Cent Lie Heard Round the World yet again. http://newsbusters.org/blogs/kyle-drennen/2014/01/31/andrea-mitchell-urges-nbc-journalist-maria-shriver-take-bow-inspiring–
Here’s a link with an excellent analysis by Thomas Sowell of the persistent lie that’s so useful to the Dems. Heck every couple of years they express outrage over the gender wage gap and proudly pass a bill correcting it, showing the current crop Dem candidates applauding. http://www.powerlineblog.com/archives/2014/01/77-cents-not-worth-a-plug-nickel.php
You might want to think twice about shelling out your hard earned $$ for your kid’s college education. Get a load of this, keep in mind that Ivy Leaguers think of themselves as the “elites.” http://www.powerlineblog.com/archives/2014/01/dartmouth-doubles-down-on-unserious-leftist-academics.php Yep, a Dartmouth college class on Beyoncé.
So some people thought there were too many whites and not enough D-I-V-E-R-S-I-T-Y on this gifted student program so the logical step is: Yep, just cut the darn program. Oh yes that will take care of everything. http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2014/jan/30/nyc-school-cuts-popular-gifted-program-over-lack-d/
Scarlett Johansson stands up for the concept of free speech, to the dismay of numerous liberals and the hate-Israel bunch. I thought liberal meant tolerant, didn’t you? Sure. There’s a Facebook page to show her support. http://legalinsurrection.com/2014/02/i-support-scarlett-johannson-against-the-haters//#more
As for SodaStream, here’s a video on the jobs they provide for Palestinians. In the BDS movement and the far left, helping Palestinians taking second place to hurting Israel. Logic isn’t the strong suit of these haters. http://www.foxnews.com/world/2014/01/31/sodastream-ignores-anti-israeli-critics-to-quench-palestinian-thirst-for-jobs/
Jews and Palestinians might think an Israeli company providing hundreds of jobs in Palestinian territory is a way to promote peace and prosperity, but some international groups think they know better.
SodaStream, the company whose home-based soda-making machines have become an American sensation, is under pressure to close down a factory in the West Bank, where more than 500 Palestinians work, reportedly earning up to 10 times the area’s prevailing wage. The campaign has reached a fever pitch, after Hollywood star Scarlett Johansson ended her alliance with an international aid group miffed that she would endorse the company. But the boss of SodaStream said he’s not going anywhere just because some global critics want him out.
You know who else is walking a thin line here? Coca-Cola, which has a relationship with Oxfam, and may have objected to the original SodaStream ad. I’ve seen reports of that but no real confirmation so I’m not saying they did but Oxfam and BDS are beginning to look toxic, and the American Studies Association boycott didn’t help any. Coke cannot afford to be seen as complying with the BDS movement, not only because that would be viewed as anti-Israel or anti-Semitic, but because the action would be viewed in the context of greed. You won’t be teaching the world to sing over greedy anti-Semitism, folks.
