No Change In Sight

Sadly for the Republic, I just don’t see the “leadership” nor the “change”. Madame deFarge…errm, Pelosi…is obviously calling the shouts and ran rough-shod over the House Republicans from Day-One. Reid in the Senate froze-out the moderate Republicans and conned the liberal Republicans from Maine and Pa. …All the while “our leader” fled to the blue-collar countryside and took refuge in claimimg he had won the election, hence a “mandate”.
A few Blue Room cocktail parties do not bipartisanship make, gang.
Obamessiah had a once a generation opportunity to set a new course for the Republic in new energy sources and uses; exciting new technologies for infrastructure…and he blew it letting Pelosi and Reid conduct politics-as-usual.

Modern Day Welfare Queen

This is a story that won't go away.The reality is that the mother of 14 needs money and from reports the donations from corporate are not pouring in, due to the backstory of this story.
Octuplet mom Nadya Suleman has launched a website asking for donations for her family of 14 children.The site features pictures of the eight newborns, with their names and birth weights, drawings of a rainbow, bottle and pacifier, and has two options to donate.She is accepting monetary donations payable by credit card (MasterCard, Visa, AmEx and Discover taken) and she also given an address to which one can send goods.The website also contains a section to leave a comment and the following message:"We thank you for the love and good wishes sent to us from around the world. The octuplets arrived on 1-26-09. They are all healthy and growing stronger by the day." Suleman no doubt needs help. She has no income, is $50,000 in debt. She also receives $490 a month in food stamps and receives about $600 in disability payments a month for each of the three of her older six children with disabilities. One has ADHD, one had a speech impediment and one has autism, according to NBC's "Dateline" special.
Although still confined to a Los Angeles hospital bed, Suleman reportedly intends to talk to two influential television hosts this week — media mogul Oprah Winfrey and Diane Sawyer.
Her family has told agents she needs cash from media deals.
Suleman is being deluged with offers for book deals, TV shows and other business proposals, but according to her publicist she hasn't decided what she might do once she leaves the hospital.
