We have to ask ourselves, “What’s the best way to grow the economy and create jobs?”
Should we keep tax loopholes for oil companies? Or should we use that money to give small business owners a tax credit when they hire new workers? Because we can’t afford to do both. Should we keep tax breaks for millionaires and billionaires? Or should we put teachers back to work so our kids can graduate ready for college and good jobs? Right now, we can’t afford to do both.
This isn’t political grandstanding. This isn’t class warfare. This is simple math. These are real choices that we have to make. And I’m pretty sure I know what most Americans would choose. It’s not even close.
Time Traveler of the Day: While signing the guestbook at Westminster Abbey today, President Obama botched the date, writing 2008 instead of, um, ah, 2010. 2012? Anyway, the date is wrong.
People focusing on the flub are overlooking a far worse infraction: The European-style date format. What’s next? The metric system? I’d rather die.
Obama’s signature is just so boss.
“Obama’s speech is like a joke for me,” said Numan Qadis, 47, as he smoked his water pipe. He mocked Obama’s calls for Israel to give up land in the Palestinian territories based on the Jewish state’s pre-1967 war borders. “That is funny, there are tens of U.N. Security Council resolutions that call for that, and Israel is ignoring them all,” Qadis said. “He has done nothing for poor Palestinians who die every day in Gaza. He will do nothing for them or for us. Rather, he talks in mere slogans seeking to increase his popularity. I think his only achievement was killing Bin Laden, that is all, man.”
Then Qadis inhaled on his pipe and puffed out a cloud of smoke. “Look at this smoke … it is like Obama’s speech. Both vanish within seconds!” he said, letting out a big laugh.
Donald Trump has been saying that he will run for President as a Republican, which is surprising, since I assumed he was running as a joke.
Donald Trump often appears on Fox, which is ironic, because a fox often appears on Donald Trump’s head.
If you’re at the Washington Post table with Trump, and you can’t finish your entree, don’t worry — the fox will eat it.
… Gary Busey said recently that Donald Trump would make a great President. Of course, he said the same thing about an old, rusty bird cage he found.
Donald Trump owns the Miss USA pageant, which is great for Republicans because it will streamline their search for a vice president.
Donald Trump said recently he had a ‘great relationship with the blacks.’ Though unless ‘the Blacks’ are a family of white people, I bet he’s mistaken.
One night President Obama and his wife Michelle decided to do something out of routine and go for a casual dinner at a restaurant that wasn’t too luxurious. When they were seated, the owner of the restaurant asked the President’s Secret Service if he could please speak to the First Lady in private. They obliged and Michelle had a conversation with the owner. Following this conversation President Obama asked Michelle, “Why was he so interested in talking to you?” She mentioned that in her teenage years, he had been madly in love with her. President Obama then said, “So if you had married him, you would now be the owner of this lovely restaurant,” to which Michelle responded, “No. If I had married him, he would now be the President.”
