Poet Al Gore Gets Creepy on The Early Show

This is just a tad creepy.  I think there is a little man-love going on here.

Try to contain yourself Harry Smith.

Of course, this is just my opinion.

Taos Hotel Owner Tells Whiney Employees to Push a Rope

I found this story interesting.  It highlights a new hotel owner in Taos, NM.  He bought a distressed hotel and decided to run it his way (since it was his money.)

I applaud Larry Whitten.  I like the fact that he is not backing down.  He explained in the interview that he fires everyone and they have to reapply for their jobs. Also, having someone use an easy to recognize name is common practice in customer service arenas – try and contact a call center and log what name they use. I’ll bet it is something simple.

Evidently CNN’s Rick Sanchez has changed his name to be more accepted by the American audience as illustrated by this clip. Sanchez also agreed with the hotel owner and his policy for those people answering the phone and dealing directly with customers.

The bottom line is that this is Mr. Whitten’s hotel – he paid for it and is responsible for making it profitable. He understands business. If he is successful, more local people will have jobs and that is real job security.

Of course, this is just my opinion.

Juan Williams Defends Rush Limbaugh

I usually don’t agree with the opinion of Juan Williams.  My wife and I call him Whiny Juan because of his proclivity to Whine about issues.  Nothing personal on our part, that’s just what we seem to hear.

Mr. Williams was a guest on The O’Reilly Factor last night as the discussion about Rush Limbaugh’s bid to become a minority owner of the Rams fell flat.  He debated Warren Ballentine if it was valid to tag Rush as a racist. 

1970?  That’s a little weak.  If that is it, ok, that’s not a great thing but I’m not sure that rises to the level of racism.  Bad taste and insensitive, maybe.

Of course, that is just my opinion.

Cavuto Slams White House Communications Director

I don’t watch Neil Cavuto on a regular basis, but he always seems to cut through the BS and really hit home runs.  In the clip below he slams White House Communications Director Anita Dunn on her dislike for Fox News.

Is Fox News really biased outside of the opinion shows?  I hardly think so.  The  fact that more Americans trust this network to give them the real story shows that they are on the right track.

Let’s examine the opinion shows:

  • Glenn Beck – Somewhat conservative but very independent thinking.  He’s no Republican.
  • Bill O’Reilly – I can’t tell what his leanings are – he really seems independent to be, but I know most lefties will disagree.
  • Bret Baier– Independent and balanced.
  • Greta Van Sustren – Independent and balanced.
  • Sean Hannity – Conservative and very right leaning.  Very biased on the right.
  • Geraldo Rivera – Liberal.
  • Sheppard Smith – Liberal, very biased on the left. 

Where is the vast right wing bias?  Even with the opinion shows thrown in, I don’t see the big deal. 

Of course, this is just my opinion.

Michael Steele is as Harsh as the Taliban

According to Barbara Boxer the head of the GOP, Michael Steele, is as harsh in his statements about the President’s Nobel Prize win as the Taliban and Hamas.  

From Michael Steele:

“The real question Americans are asking is ‘what has President Obama accomplished?’  It is unfortunate that the President’s star power has outshined tireless advocates who have made real achievements working towards peace and human rights.”

So is she really comparing the GOP to terrorist organizations?  Nice.  At least the commentators of the liberal MSNBC actually asked her to clarify her position.

Of course, this is just my opinion.

A Tale of Two Protests

Bill Hemmer really showed the difference between protesters at a G-20 protest (or riot if you prefer) and a recent Tea Party protest.

Which one would you rather attend? 

Of course, this is just my opinion.

Whoopi Goldberg: It Wasn’t Rape Rape

The only time I watch The View is when clips like this come up. 

The discussion on this particular day was about the extradition of Roman Polanski.  If you don’t remember or don’t know, Polanski was an excellent Hollywood director until he drugged and raped a 13-year-old in the late 70’s.  He’s been on the run ever since.

I’m not easily offended and I can’t remember the last time I have been offended by something someone has said.  I think I’m offended by Ms. Goldberg.  I have a daughter and I can tell you that if some adult, let alone some Hollywood scumbag, drugged my 13-year old and had relations with her I would hunt him down and drag his but into the police station.  Rape is rape. 

When Sherri Shepperd and Joy Bahar look like the smart ones things are off kilter. 

Of course, this is just my opinion.
