In Barack Obama's home town of Chicago, Local Banks work with families to Redo predatory loans.



Or, we could re title this article, Things Barack Obama supports for his hometown of Chicago that he doesn't support for the rest of america, certainly not for gun toting, bible thumping, bitter people.

Football: President Obama chats with Jeffrey Lurie, Congraulates him for signing Michael Vick - mcall.com



There is more to this story. If the only reason Barack Obama had called Jeffrey Lurie was to talk about Michael Vick, that would absolutely freak me out. However, once again Barack Obama dodges a huge faux pas by also talking about the alternative energy plans that Lurie is planning on installing at Eagles stadium.

hey Barack Obama, there are millions of homeowners being foreclosed on every year in this country, and HAMP is bait and switch and probably a violation of the Federal Hobbs act, the extortion clause, lets focus on what matters.

Unless Barack Obama is eyeing the stadiums as foreclosure homes for those he's helping make homeless.

"Barack Obama Congratulates Himself" is a GOOGLEWHACK!

CLICK ON IMAGE TO ENLARGE.

I just don't understand what is going on. I thought I recently saw Barack Obama congratulate himself for doing more in the past two years than any administration has in recent and far away memory. So for kicks, I did the following google search, "Barack Obama congratulates himself", with the quotes wrapped around the phrase which is CRITICAL so that google only looks for those four words in that exact order.

Amazingly, ONLY ONE LISTING CAME UP, and it was from a year and a half ago!
"Barack Obama Congratulates Himself" is a GOOGLEWHACK! (well, presumably now that I have written this article "Barack Obama Congratulates himself" will become a GOOGLETHWACK.)
Am I to believe that no other blogger in the past two years has observed Barack Obama congratulating himself and written those exact four words in that exact order? I kind of wanted to watch the recent video news clip again of Barack Obama congratulating himself over all that his presidency has done in his first two years in office, but I guess it never happened?

What amazes me about Obama's sentiment that his administration has done more in the first two years in office than any recent presidency, assuming I wasn't dreaming, is that Barack Obama has turned his back on over a million HAMP applicants who were the victims of parallel foreclosure. Barack Obama basically prioritized a realistically flawed healthcare program that may be overturned by the courts rather than dealing with the home foreclosure issue head on that is foreclosing on up to 10,000 homes a day.

When Does ACORN, and all of their NEW NAME offshoots, apologize to Hillary Clinton?

Click here for the most current DailyPUMA article.

I am completely supportive of homeowners in the home foreclosure controversy that has swept the nation for the past couple of years. However, I think I'm starting to see ACORN sponsored foreclosure protestors on television, being arrested, speaking on capitol hill, and so on.

Until ACORN admits to their cheating ways in the 2008 democratic caucus contests that favored Barack Obama and were against Hillary Clinton, they won't be absolved of their past sins, and their complaining about foreclosure won't have the impact it could have.

If ACORN truly cares about the downtrodden and those who are being victimized by parallel foreclosure and other unfair foreclosure actions, they would apologize to Hillary Clinton for their unseemly actions in 2008. Hillary Clinton was the only remaining 2008 presidential candidate that advocated a 60 day foreclosure freeze so the foreclosure issue could be dealt with fairly and squarely.

In the fall of 2008, before the actual election contest against John McCain, Barack Obama favored a 90 day home foreclosure freeze. Certainly looks like another HUGE promise made by Barack Obama that never came to pass.

Blame Betty Grable for Don't Ask, Don't Tell.

In the 1940's during World War II, millions of american soldiers had Betty Grable posters pinned up over their baracks bunk beds. Unfortunately, if a soldier was gay, they could not put up a hunky poster of their favorite male movie star.

Whether you google male pinups from the 40's, or female pinups from the 40's, the images are basically all of women.

Fast forward to today, and the repeal of don't ask, don't tell. Is it possible that once the pinup posters of Brad Pitt go up in the male barracks, a rift might form among soldiers who are supposed to put aside all of their differences and be there for each other on the battle field, as soldiers?

I would assume that gay soldiers having to look at heterosexual pin ups in their baracks, but not being able to put up a pin up of a male figure that they admire, is discrimination. Is that what the repeal of Don't Ask Don't Tell is about. Well, yes.

But if you are a commander in the army, you probably care less that 10% to 20% of your soldiers can't put up the pin up poster they want, if it might make some of the other 80% to 90% uncomfortable in such a way that it could subliminally impinge their performance in pre-battle or battle time situations.

You can sit there and say, screw you, you homophobes, that's your problem. But a commander in chief is still going to want what produces the most effective result ON THE BATTLEFIELD. Strengthening the resolve for a much smaller percentage of the troops, at the risk of possibly weakening the resolve of a portion of the majority of the troops, may not be the ideal scenario for a commander in chief.

What I always thought was cool about "don't ask, don't tell", was that even if someone revealed they were gay, in theory, they could not be prosecuted because nobody else was allowed to tell, even if they heard. It was double protection against persecution. However, my perception of what Don't ask, Don't tell, might not actually be how it was followed.

In terms of the military, all I care, as an outsider, is that the entire troop watches out for each other to the max, and I wonder if Betty Grable changed that for all time. Maybe one day only posters of family, or friends of family will be allowed up on a barracks wall, thereby making the issue moot. Oh wait, that won't work either until anyone can legally be married.

The Sad Tale of Oprah Winfrey and her farewell Victory Tour while millions of americans suffer foreclosure fraud.

In just the past week, I have seen THREE Oprah Winfrey spoofs, one on Jimmy Kimmel, another on David Letterman, and another on Saturday Night live. While the spoofs are probably meant in fun and jest, in my opinion they are a condemnation of Oprah Winfrey's over the top narcissim during her retirement victory tour that appears to be lasting an ENTIRE television season!

In the past few weeks, without even looking, I have been exposed to Oprah Crying opposite Tyler Perry. Perry was recounting his horrible childhood, and began gushing at how Oprah inspired her, which got Oprah crying. It would be all well and good if Tyler Perry had not been also hawking his new movie, For Colored Girls, and if we didn't have 10,000 people being foreclosed upon every day in this country, many of them unfairly. It's just the wrong time to be making it about you, Oprah and your rich and successful friends.
Can there be anything more pathologically narcissistic than the site of two BILLIONAIRES crying on stage about how hard their lives were growing up, while every day in the United States 10 thousand homeowners are foreclosed upon?
Then there was Oprah crying as she and Whoopi Goldberg confab'd. It reminded me of the almost overdone sit com plot line where the protagonist on the show can't stand it when somebody doesn't like them. Gosh Oprah, how about asking Whoopi OFF CAMERA, why she doesn't like you, and not on! By the way, that may just be why Whoopi doesn't like you, your opportunizing a moment on camera, that could have been more productive doing off camera.

Just what is Whoopi Goldberg supposed to say ON AIR about why she doesn't like you, Oprah?

Then there was Barbara Walters asking Oprah if she was a lesbian and Oprah's vehement lie, er, denial that she was not. "Not that there's anything wrong with that" (a Seinfeld reference), but does anybody really believe Oprah's lesbian denials?

I have never bothered to calculate the percentage, but I believe that at least 50% of all female talk show hosts that have hosted their own television show, have been lesbians, and it could be as high as 75% if you count the couple who never came out. So this isn't really groundbreaking stuff even if Oprah is a lesbian. Anyways, all of these moments were rebroadcast on other television shows as excerpts, and these moments found me, I didn't find them, and I am the worse for it.

Speaking of Oprah's victory tour, she's in Australia for several weeks doing her farewell victory show and just a short while ago Hugh Jackman crashed into a light while making a special entrance for...Oprah Winfrey in Australia!

By the way, Aussies have been coming to the U.S. and gleefully buying up Florida properties for pennies on the dollars. Glad to see Oprah so in tune to her own countries troubles, snark, or that of Haiti's in their struggle to get any of that money that the United States allegedly raised for Haiti, but has held onto. But rumor has it that Oprah did fly over Haiti on her way to Australia and gave Haiti her blessings.
Has there ever been a television personality with the reputation and clout of Oprah Winfrey who has frittered away their final year in daytime programming by focusing on their own narcissistic journey, when the country and the audience that made her famous needed her to protect them from predatory banking and foreclosure practices that have been surfacing at an alarming pace?
Oprah Winfrey could have used the final year of her television show to expose the dastardly deeds of her own business acquaintances, such as those of Jamie Dimon of Chase Bank, but instead we are treated to a trail of Oprah's tears as guests tell her how much she has meant to them...meanwhile, TEN THOUSAND homes are foreclosed upon every day in the United States, and many of them are not being fairly treated.

The closest Oprah Winfrey went to addressing the home foreclosure issue that I can recall seeing is her focus on how YOU could take control of your own finances. That is fine and well, but what about predatory lending, foreclosure fraud, parallel foreclosure that americans are being victimized by Oprah? That woud require Oprah doing battle with the business establishment, and apparently, those who are Oprah Winfrey's closest friends.

I have a theory as to why Oprah Winfrey seems to have developed a weak spine. I think when the Texas Beef Council sued her for slander in the late 90's, and she had to go to Texas, (ironically, this was how she met Dr. Phil and he ultimately earned a shot at his own show), Oprah Winfrey was really really scared she could go to jail. She might have lost it if not for Dr. Phil.

It's my opinion that Oprah probably had a relapse of fear when the girls orphanage in South Africa that she funded ended up with accusations of abuse. I guess Oprah lives in fear that she will be sued if she gets involved in noble causes, and the result is a shell of what she could have done in her final year in the daytime television spotlight.

And of course, there is Barack Obama. Oprah Winfrey is quite proud that helped a racist country (that embraced her whole heartedly 25 years ago) elect Barack Obama, irrespective of his actual experience, to the presidency of the United States. Oprah did a show after the 2008 elections where she talked about Barack Obama being elected president as being as big of a deal as B.C. and A.D. (before christ, after death). I recall that Oprah show, she literally repeated herself two or three times on how miraculous it was that Barack Obama had been elected.

G'day Oprah.

New Agenda video "Searching for Sexism" offers some disturbing images, and maybe some "change".



The first video clip of the very young kids dancing is really, really, creepy.

If I could sheepishly suggest a title change to your series. I would call it
"Escaping Sexism".

Jonathan Alter Tributes Elizabeth Edwards, Alter also ridiculed John McCain for praising Hillary Clinton's 2008 presidential campaign.

I am fuming right now. But, rather than spew here, read what AN ARSEHOLE Jonathan Alter was in 2008 when he visited Keith Olberman's show and spent over four minutes ridiculing John McCain after McCain made an incredibly eloquent speech about Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign and the media attacks she had to preservere through.

So I guess Alter can tribute women who have passed while piling on the BS against strong, successful women who are alive. Newsweek, and Alter, you stink.

Shouldn't documents be stolen and leaked from ALL COUNTRIES before discussing punitive actions?

The belief that because top secret documents were stolen from the United States, and therefore whatever they reveal should result in punitive actions, does not allow for a comparison to be made to all other countries and their top secret documents.

It is silly to demand that one country be punished for leaked top secret documents when no one knows how they compare to the unleaked top secret documents from all other countries.
