Gneeral David Petraeus, The US Army Central Command, Commander (Middle East), is going to receive the American Enterprise Institute’s annual Irving Kristol Award……the award is given for….. “notable intellectual or practical contributions to improved public policy and social welfare” and named in honor of Irving Kristol“.
I really don’t understand why he’s getting it, except that there is a conservative angle to it….that means political…right?…..he’s serving U.S. Army General …right?Share on Facebook
The Wall Street Journal is out with a piece today (Friday night, right?…When nobodies looking, except us) that details the United State plans and hopes to have 3,000 to 5,000 more troops sent to Afghanistan to help President Obama’s expected troop increase, or ‘surge’…..
Funny..the piece says the announcement could be made by November 30th…just about when the Commander-in Chief will make his troop announcement…or right after……
My guess is they are going to have trouble getting more troops (or even keep the ones they have) from Germany, which has had trouble accepting the fact the troops are there to do a little fighting and having casualties which is normal for this type of thing…These causalities are the first Germany has had since World War II…..Share on Facebook
Zhu Zhu is not real folks…..it’s a $7.99 toy hamster that doesn’t run all night in its cage…..ah, they are so popular that there is a price war going on to get them….(for you old timer’s remember the cabbage patch kids, price scalpers?)
Eager to work a good thing…look out for sets of toy hamsters, with everything a real one would need, cage, excercise wheel, fun house and more….of course the set will cost you more..
…the stores and manufacturer has to make money some how, right?
Note: “zhu zhu” means little pig in Chinese….Share on Facebook
This is dumb…the New York Times writes a piece on the busted efforts of the United States and other Western countries to negotiate anything with Iran….and guess what….NOTHING…Naddda…No GO…..
And you know what?….it’s gonna be the same until the Iranians announce they have the bomb…or you know who took the bomb factories out…..
Stay tuned…..and watch smart people keep doing dumb things……Share on Facebook

I heard this Afghani quote yesterday from a reporter that had spent a lot of time in Afghanistan…..
….’the American’s have the watches…we have the time’…..
How true and astute…..Share on Facebook
Rudy Giuliani was pro-choice, and wasn’t against gay marriage ( and he dressed in drag more than once)…..
Just a reminder…..
Be careful what you wish for……..Share on Facebook
It is now impossible for Hoffman to win with the count of absentee ballots below the 3,105 vote plurality that Bill Owens has…..it’s over…..Share on Facebook
As if the President doesn’t have enough grief with democrats scared of midterm elections….the Congressional Hispanic Caucus (CHC) is now declaring war on Rahm Emmuel, in particular….The CHC are not happy that Illegal immigrants are being denied access to getting health insurance from their employers…..
While the House bill would give them way to get insurance..the senate version would not…..
The whole policy question plays out to this…..should the White House jettison any thing for illegal’s to get votes from the right?….or should they fight for the hispanic/latino vote?
The fact remains that people will go to the hospital for care when have to…do we…the taxpayer pay for that?…or do we let them pay for that, even if they are illegals (but willing to pay out of their own pocket)….Share on Facebook
Yesterday the New York Daily News breathlessly pushed a story that Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani would not run for Governor of New York, but would run for the US Senate from New York…challenging sitting Senator Kristen Gillibrand……
Well, the story was only half right actually…..
Rudy’s handler’s have come out strong backing the no governor run…..But have denied that Rudy has made any decision on the senate race…..If fact, to a tee everyone that knows Rudy doubts very much that he run for the senate, since Rudy is more of an executive type who “run’s things” these days…..
Ah, let me remind people…the last few races Rudy ‘ran’….Resulted in him quitting the races before they finished…..
This one probably won’t even get started…..
But the democrats , and Kristen Gillibrand in particular are going to be happy with the Rudy and the NY Daily News…..because over the last two days her fund-raising totals have to have doubled or tripled……
Note:…. The NY Daily News is posting the story today as…..’Rudy Giuliani doesn\’t need to run for senator – the former NYC mayor already has money and influence’….that’s not what they said yesterady…..Share on Facebook
A new Open Thread starting November 20th…….what’s on your minds people?….Share on Facebook
The mega star will step down from her Chicago based talk show in September 2011…..while her ratings have come down a bit, Oprah G.Winfrey still commands a dedicated audience and has started may a career including Dr. Phil (McGraw)…her fortune was estimated at $800 million in 2000…..
Winfrey will start a partnership with the Discovery Health Channel, which reaches 70 million homes in 2011, and she may want to move her show to that cable channel then after the two channels will become the Oprah Winfrey Network….Share on Facebook
