This blog is mainly about the spectacular train wreck at The Sacramento Bee and its parent company, the McClatchy Company. But I also post about current events, the Iraq and Afghanistan wars, politics, anything else that grabs my attention. Take a look around this blog, hope you enjoy it.

Saturday July 25 -- Got news or an update?
If you have news or an update, leave it in comments. . . .
Obama's a Racist (The American Thinker)
Yes, I said it: Obama is a racist. As the white, conservative mother of black/Mexican/white children, I know a racist when I hear one. S
o is his buddy, Henry Louis Gates. Don't let these two Ivy League-educated, erudite, distinguished black men convince you that only whites can be racists.
Believe me, these two men are the worst kind of racists: black and elitist.
There are many black racists who hate whites and Asians and/or Hispanics. Gates is just as much a racist and race pimp as Al Sharpton.
Recall, Obama sat in a racist Church fo 20 years listening to the sermons of a racist Preacher.
His wife wrote her thesis on her racism, Obama wrote in his book of his lean toward racism. It should come as no surprise.
David Brooks: 'I Feel Politically Closer to Barack Obama Than to House Minority Leader John Boehner'
Almost every week at the New York Times, house "conservative" David Brooks and liberal columnist Gail Collins have a public conversation.
This week Brooks made a startling admission in The Conversation which really wasn't so surprising when one actually reads his columns. Here is the money quote:
At the moment, I feel politically closer to Barack Obama than to House Minority Leader John Boehner (and that’s even while being greatly exercised about the current health care bills).
That says it all. The NYT token "conservative" thinks he is closer to the most leftist president in the history of the country than he is to an elected Republican official.
I'm convinced: Brooks is a socialist, and the NYT is even further left than he is.
NYT Now Gets As Much Money from Circulation as from Ads
If current trend lines hold up, circulation revenues at The New York Times will pass ad revenues sometime this quarter for the first time ever. In the second quarter, the Times (I’m using NYT
Media Group numbers, which are almost all from the NYT itself) brought in $185 million in advertising revenue, while it reaped $166 million from its subscribers. Three years ago, those numbers were $316 million and $156 million respectively. The ad-to-circ revenue ratio at The New York Times has gone from two-to-one to one-to-one. Stunning.
///I'm convinced: Brooks is a socialist, and the NYT is even further left than he is.///
ROFL! No wonder you guys are out of power and are going to remain that way for at least another generation.
The Kansas City Star has been deleting comments off their blogs that criticize either them or their columnists.
They also selectively delete comments by conservatives. Looks like they are working towards blogs that only agree with their point of view and opposing opinions need not bother.
Rasmussen: Daily Presidential Tracking Poll (-9) DIVE, DIVE!
The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Saturday shows that 30% of the nation's voters now Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as President. Thirty-nine percent (39%) Strongly Disapprove giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -9. (see trends).
The number who Strongly Disapprove of the President has increased slightly following the prime time press conference on Wednesday night. That figure—39%--is now at the highest level yet recorded.
The more the public knows him, the less it likes him.
That’s why the media and dems conspired during the campaign to keep the public focused on the mantra “first Black president” and not on his character.
Those Working to Become Rich Carry Heaviest Tax Load WSJ EDITORIAL RESPONSE
Regarding your editorial “The Small Business Surtax” (July 14):
President Barack Obama, Rep. Charlie Rangel and Speaker Nancy Pelosi have decided that the best way to prosperity, equality and the utopia of universal health coverage is to tax the rich just a little more....
....So how can I afford to pay more in taxes? It is very simple. I will employ fewer people, and grow the company slower, if at all. When the layoffs occur,
I will begin with the people who have “Obama” stickers on their new cars in the parking lot.
Then they can all go down to the welfare office and apply for their government-supplied health insurance, which I am sure will be better than the 80/20 private plan we provide.
The comment on this thread, and many others, that "you will out of power for a decade" illustrates as important point about the liberals. Notice that there is no thought to what is right or best for the country only what will lead to power.
Power after all is what drives the liberal mind. That's why Obama is driving to take over health care so quickly. That's why he socialized a large hunk of the Automobile industry.
Liberals have an unending thirst for power and can't imagine why anyone would stand up for right or what's best.
Know-Nothing-in-Chief (Obama knows nothing about economics)
Is President Obama an economic illiterate? Harsh as that sounds, there's growing evidence he understands little about economics and even less about economic growth or job creation. Yet, as we saw at last week's presidential press conference, he's undeterred from holding forth, with seeming confidence, on economic issues.
Obama professes to believe in free market economics. But no one expects his policies to reflect the unfettered capitalism of a Milton Friedman. That's too much to ask. Demonstrating a passing acquaintance with free market ideas and how they might be used to fight the recession--that's not too much to ask.
But the president talks as if free market solutions are nonexistent, and in his mind they may be. Three weeks after taking office, he said only government "has the resources to jolt our economy back into life." He hasn't retreated, in words or policies, from that view.
8:05 It is definitely NOT what's right or what's best to have the selfish, self-serving, tunnel-visioned, intolerant, self-righteous Republicans in power.
Anon 8:25 You go girl, and are 100%correct. And Dear Leaders poll numbers are not down!
He still has:
90% of blacks
100% of communists
99% of gays
100% of illegal aliens
100% of government ee’s
97% of college proffessors
100% of Muzzies and terrorists AND
98% of MEDIA TYPES
= 30% of people.
I don’t see how Obama can turn his poll numbers around.
Healthcare will stink the more that is known about it, teh same for cap and tax.
Obama has already gone all-in on the stimulus with almost zero results and unemployment continues to rise.
What’s left to prop up this presidency? More blathering soft ball press conferences? Maybe a Michele Obama fashion show?
The only question is how large is the core of commie lemmings are that will support him no matter what?
I think it's the media's fault for not giving Dear Leader enough face time.
One press conference a week is too infrequent; he should go for daily. Then he should get soccer stadiums full of people to applaud his 10 hour speeches. Then he should take over all of the radio networks and give daily speeches on them.
And statues, we need statues, ones with him standing chin held high with his left hand extended in a grand gesture.
Then we need gigantic murals of smiling laborers waving back at him as he stands above them.
If only he had more exposure, then people would like him and his wonderful pogroms.
The story behind my Obama question
The Chicago Sun-Times
BY LYNN SWEET Sun-Times Columnist WASHINGTON -- I asked President Obama what turned out to be a provocative question at his press conference on Wednesday night… well, it was his answer that was really provocative …
“I got a call from the White House press office about 6:30 p.m. confirming I was indeed going to show up at the 8 p.m. press conference. I was told I “may” get a question from the president. No one asked me — directly or indirectly — about what I may be asking. No one from the White House tried to plant any question.”
First, me thinks she protests too much! But more importantly, if the President knows in advance which reporters he is going to pick for the questions - even to the point that they call them in advance to make sure they are at the press conference - and- if it was so planned out that the President had to hurry to make sure that reporter gets to ask his/her question – then - what is the point of having the other reporters there?
Is that how it was done when Bush was President?
It is utterly ridiculous to believe that the Whitehouse did not know in advance what she was going to ask. They choreographed everything else for her.
The question was supposed to deflect attention off of his horrible health care bill - but “the most brilliant orator we’ve ever had for a President” blew the answer & took more heat for it.

Docs tell 83-year-old Swede she's 'too old' for treatment (The Local)
An 83-year-old woman from Östergötland in southern Sweden was forced to pay for back surgery out of her own pocket after doctors at her local public hospital told her she was too old for the treatment.
...Is that how it was done when Bush was President?...
9:40 AM You're a liar.
You liberal, pussy, liar, POS. You know it's a lie as useful McClatchy idiots and dykes like Rosenberg would come unglued if President Bush did that.
Yet, talk about TOTUS, and how President Bush did that you sack of.....well you get my drift
///Yet, talk about TOTUS, and how President Bush did that///
Yes, every president since Eisenhower has used a teleprompter.
