Dear Readers: I have a few news and notes today to share with you all before the busy weekend. As you may know, SONY is producing a movie about the heroic NAVY SEALs operation that lead to Osama Bin Laden’s Death. It is slated to help Obama’s re-election, as Team Sony and their Hollywood glitterati intend to release in in October 2012. They assert they have the Freedom of Speech.
I have a freedom, too. It is the Freedom of Spending. And their cinematic plans just cost SONY some money today.
I went to Staples to by CDs for my profit-center business. I need high-quality ones for the documentation I do. I was grabbing for the SONY brand, but when I recalled the movie stunt, I bought MEMOREX.
SONY: Your money-gram as arrived. NO SALE! Change the intended release date until after the November 2012 election, otherwise I will encourage others to express their own freedom of spending in ways you don’t like.
The Goddess of Capitalism is most displeased. Sony shall feel her wrath!
Speaking of money, 2 local politicians (North County Councilmen) have been caught not declaring the gambling winnings, despite state requirements to do so. Rules are for the little people.
Transition from gambling to WILDCARDS: Carl DeMaio for Mayor. DeMaio stood up for California Citizens, challenging the airing of the odious union-backed ad that tries to undermine our state’s petition process by false claims of identity theft. Sadly, the (un)The Fair Political Practices Commission has dismissed a request. . MUT task of the day: Call 1-866-275-3772 and thank these union hacks personally. It is bureaucracy like this that is driving our entrepreneurs out-of-state.
I am the last of our SLOBs to come out in support, as I recall how much DeMaio disappointed me during the incipient stages of the Tea Party. However, Palin has disappointed me, too (i.e.g, backing Fiorina instead of DeVore). But she stands strong where it matters — as does Carl. His initiating the request shows a perception that the focus of San Diegans is on small government that is there to serve the people (not the other way around). Palin was smeared as a “rogue” candidate. I have learned people are smearing DeMaio as a “wildcard”. I say — embrace it!
Hey Carl — if you read this, Sarah will probably work up a suitable Wild Card logo you personally! 😉 I think come 2012, Wild Card will be the winning hand.
Professor Athena wanted me to link to the million-dollar punditry of Charles Krauthammer today: THE SYSTEM WORKS. The Money Quote:
Notice how the loudest complaints about “broken politics” come from those who lost the debate. It’s understandable for sore losers to rage against the machine. But there’s no need for the rest of us to parrot their petulance.
Finally, some more money spending ideas:
PS. My thoughts on last night’s GOP debate?It was awful, and the biggest loser was the American public. I hold FOX partly responsible for the debate debacle. No questions on entitlement reform! No question on Social Security fixes! Romney got very little questioning about his late entry into the debate discourse and his “corporations are people” statement! And the focus was on the ever divisive social issue instead of the economy? And Byron York sounded like an elitist Beltway minion with his question to Bachmann about “submission”. If York gets anywhere in earshot of me today, I will teach him about “submission”.
