19 years of litigation has seemingly come to an end for a group of Native American activits who were turned down yesterday by the Supreme Court regarding their challenge to the Washington Redskins’ racially charged name.
SCOTUS declined without comment, meaning a lower court’s ruling will stand. The Native American activists said that the Washington football team’s nickname was so offensive that it did not deserve to be trademarked.
The Redskins have adamantly maintained that their team name is a tribute to the Native Americans, not intended to be offensive in any way.
Thanks Obama! This makes Americans look so educated. Everyone knows Asian people always bow, only eat rice, and own laundromats. That reminds me, I need to get more Kabuki makeup before I go home for Thanksgiving. Don’t want to disappoint the relatives!
Pamela Eyring, the president of The Protocol School of Washington, said this of Obama’s symbolic gesture of America’s hegemonic decline: “It isn’t correct for a chief of state to bow to another chief of state. It’s not appropriate. He should not be bowing to other chiefs of state.”
In a highly anticipated interview with Obama fanatic Oprah Winfrey, which aired Monday, former veep candidate Sarah Palin continued driving her fans/bloodhungry political pundits crazy by eluding her 2012 decisions. She did say that “having a title” has not been necessary for her recently to have clout, but she never did deny outright that she would not be running for prez in 2012.
Why do we still care about presidential elections in 2012? Doesn’t everyone know the world is going to end by then!? Trust me, I saw it in the movies.
A conservative Hollywood-based filmmaker created what he believed to be a patriotic iPhone app that offered directory listings of every US senator and congress(wo)man serving our country. However, the app was DOA when Apple caught sight of this drawing of Nancy Pelosi, which is apparently offensive. Here is what Pelosi really looks like:
Seems favorable to me.
The directory would have contained caricatures of members of all parties, drawn by former Mad Magazine artist Tom Richmond. The politicians’ heads bobbled on the screen for added effect.
Perhaps because he doesn’t enjoy gunfire, Lou Dobbs is leaving CNN “to pursue other opportunities. CNN allowed him to peace out of his contract early, and were probably glad to get rid of the neoconservative anchor whose views would have clashed with the other CNN anchors, who are outrageously liberal open-minded!
Dobbs has been working for CNN since 1980, when the news channel was conceived. He was hosting a show about business, but says his worldviews changed arfter the 9/11 attacks and corporate scandals. He began to more openly put forward his opnions, and was in particular very vocal about illegal immigration. Pointing out Obama’s clear lack of birth certificate didn’t help things, either, with the CNN crowd, and Dobbs says he has been in discussions for months about getting out.
Apparently Tuesday’s GOP sweep did little to faze House Democrats, who haev been riding high on the Obama gravy train since the prez took office. Despite an overwhelming majority, and not simply a plurality, of Americans not wanting Obamacare to pass, the “landmark” bill found favor in the House, winning narrowly in a 220-215 vote.
An ecstatic Nancy Pelosi smiled as much as her Botox would allow, and compared the passing of Obamacare to the healthcare bill to the 1935 program of social security and then Medicare thirty years later, two largely successful government programs that are not drenched in scandal, fraud, or abuse. Can’t wait to see how the healthcare turns out…
It’s interesting the Lady of the House mentioned Medicare, as the 1.2 trillion dollar bill comes at the cost of Medicare and a tax on the wealthy: the bill cuts Medicare’s spending over $400 billion in the next ten years, while simultaneously imposing a 5.4%–1/20 th of one’s salary–on enterprising individuals who make over $500,000 a year, and on families brining in over $1 million a year. We don’t want people being too successful here in America.
