Monday mornings tend to have a lot of stuff to mention,

and this one's no different. The major media is playing 'minimize the 9/12 protest and insult everyone involved'.

Obama is paying back unions, and screw the economy.
As a result of “Buy American” provisions in Obama’s porkulus law, Canadian companies have “retaliated with measures effectively barring U.S. companies from their municipal contracts — the first shot in a larger campaign that could shut U.S. companies out of billions of dollars worth of Canadian projects.”

Now, the tire war is on with China.

Make no mistake: This is not about protecting consumers or American jobs.

It’s about paying off Big Labor again.

This time, it’s the United Steelworkers cashing in.

Yes, the same United Steelworkers union that backed the “Buy America” provisions in the porkulus law.

And the same United Steelworkers union that employed union hatchet man-turned auto czar-turned-manufacturing czar Ron Bloom.

One more fun fact: United Steelworkers president Leo Gerard “also serves on the U.S. National Commission on Energy Policy and is a founding board member of the Apollo Alliance, a non-profit public policy initiative for creating good jobs in pursuit of energy independence.”

And speaking of unions, let's not forget the teacher's unions:
Teachers unions have contributed over $1.3 million to ACORN and its affiliates, since 2005, according to U.S. Labor Department financial disclosure forms.

But there is no guarantee that the $1,333,112 million in donations from the National Education Association (NEA) and Teachers AFL-CIO unions are actually being used for their stated purposes, according to present and former Association of Community Organizers for Reform Now (ACORN) officials
At least teachers know their money is going to an organization that seems to have no problem with sneaking underage girls into the country to be hookers.

Obama & Co. are planning, either after seizing control of health care or to console themselves if they don't, to 'reform' immigration. I like this line:
...These incredibly harsh detention facilities that are there and treating people like criminals.
Uh, Rep. Schakowsky(Amnesty Party-IL), they are criminals; they came into this country illegally, which is, like, a crime, y'know? You moron.

It's not political, but Kanye West is a friggin' idiot. And an ill-mannered jerk.

Rep. Charles Rangel(Evil Party Tax Cheat-NY) is still the gift that keeps on giving:
Rep. Charles Rangel reported no rental income for eight years on his rundown Harlem row house, even though public records show tenants were living there.

The powerful chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee said he received nothing from 1993 to 2000 on the six-unit building, according to federal financial disclosure forms.

But one current tenant told The Post she had lived at the building for 20 years -- and paid rent during that period.

Another said her former boyfriend called 74 W. 132nd St. home for many years, paying about $500 a month in rent.

A real scientist who had a truly incredible impact on civilization died. Suggestion in his memory:
A fitting tribute would be to mulch Paul Ehrlich into fertilizer for a Third World wheat farm.

More later, have to head to the dentist for checkup

Great post on Rangel. That man needs to go. Congressman John Carter (R-TX) has filed the "Rangel Rule." If Rangel decides he doesn't want to pay taxes, other people can decide that too.

Welcome to where britain was in the 1970s on the road to fourth world dictatorship.

At least the change to t'wan has been enough of a bump to wake up one or two of the sleepily boiling frogs.

Sipsey street has some interesting opinions on 9/12
