I downloaded State from Xtranormal, they're the people who did that "text to movie" application. Check them out here.
I was experimenting with the program and my satire news "headlines" from the last week. It's ROUGH around the edges, but I'm happy with my first go at this.
I don't know if I'll do this again with the headlines, but I'll definitely be using this program for future posts...it's pretty awesome.
President Obama called on U.S. businesses to do more to help grow the economy, saying that while the unemployment rate is getting better and jobs are being added, the U.S. needs “to get there faster.”
“Businesses have a responsibility, too,” said Obama in his weekly address on Saturday. “If we make America the best place to do business, businesses should make their mark in America. They should set up shop here, and hire our workers, and pay decent wages, and invest in the future of this nation. That’s their obligation.”....

What a week for this guy, it's really too bad that this came AFTER the Oscar nominations, because between him opening up about his faith, and now his outreach to American business, he's probably the first guy in history that could actually fake an orgasm too.
Business has a responsibility to do what is best for business. If it does what is not best for itself it will run itself out of existence....or in apparent Obamaspeak, "meet their obligation."
One thing is certain we don't need the president, who as Doug Power's puts it, couldn’t run a lemonade stand without running it into a $5 million debt, lecturing business about their role in the recovery process.
Does this idiot not realize that the private sector isn't like the govenrment? They don't sit around thumbing themselves while getting COLA raises and then some through the osmosis of mixing time with entitlement. They can't live their lives like a government worker, they have to hustle, they've been hustling. Strapping anvils like ObamaCare to the backs of business doesn't help, Mr. President.
Business may have an obligation to follow the law, but government has an obligation to not stifle business...and government is the horse, not the cart, in this equation.
Business can't "shop and hire" if there's no money or economic activity to justify it. They also can't project what they should do in the future when a certain nameless
buffn plays magic 8 ball with taxes and entitlements.
This is basic, common sense stuff. He probably should've thought it through a bit before putting business over his rhetorical knee. What was he thinking?

Yeah, ok, he proved this YEARS ago...but I'm just sayin'...
“We are happy to work with Republicans; we recognize that there has to be some long-term financial austerity,” Reid said.
“We’re not burying our heads in the sand; we recognize we need to do some things,” he added.
But he called a proposal by House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) to cut this year’s federal budget by $32 billion “unworkable.”

This is why people from Nevada can't be in charge of money. The deficit isn't some slot machine. A 32 billion dollar cut is "unworkable?" This is what he means by that:
If you put 100 pennies on a table, and those pennies represent the $1.5 trillion dollar deficit that Harry inherited from Bush 2 years after his presidency ended. Those 100 pennies represent pennies you don't actually have, and should not have spent.
In walks Paul Ryan and says, "holy crap those aren't our pennies! We've got to get rid of some of them, we need a change, A MAJOR CHANGE! Everyone......brace yourselves this is going to a BUMPY RIDE!!!!"
He then removes 2 pennies, or $32 billion dollars, off of the table......
Harry Reid thinks THAT is "unworkable"...
WRONG, square pegs in round holes are unworkable.
Global warming rhetoric during blizzards is unworkable
Michael Vick and the Dog Whisperer are unworkable
Helen Thomas and Victoria's Secret is unworkable
The Democratic Party is unworkable.
They're ready to shut down the government, like at this point that would be a bad thing, over cuts that amount to 2% of the deficit. This is madness.
Even with his glasses "Four Eyes" Reid can't see we are standing at the edge of a fiscal abyss.Add a comment
Warning: If you don't like profanity...move along, nothing to see here.
I've been waiting for someone to give me a cogent reason why Glenn Beck is crazy, and I got it in song format! It's too bad its laced with profanity, but then again profanity is the nectar of the intelligence gods. I'm willing to put up with a little bit if it means finally realizing why Glenn Beck is such a dummy.
WOW! I'm convinced. I never realized it was that simple! Oh, and how do you argue with that standing ovation?Add a comment
HAHA! Just kidding! It's a liberal rally for Common Cause. If you want to see the Tea Party saying what you're about to witness you need to find a writer, producer, director, and a cast of actors willing to put it together in Hollywood
Warning: This contains profanity, advocacy of torture, and death threats. Make sure your jaw is located under carpet or a fluffy pillow, on the floor and positioned to catch it.
So what does Common Cause have to say for themselves? Here's an excerpt of a letter featured at Big Journalism:
We condemn bigotry and hate speech in every form, even when it comes from those who fancy themselves as our friends.
Anyone who has attended a public event has encountered people whose ideas or acts misrepresented, even embarrassed, the gathering. Every sporting event has its share of "fans" whose boorish behavior on the sidelines makes a mockery of good sportsmanship; every political gathering has a crude sign-painter or epithet-spewing heckler.
Read the entire letter here.
In other words, "give us the benefit of the doubt we will never give the Tea Party." Their point would be well taken if the hypocrisy weren't so brazen.
When Glenn Beck featured this video on his TV show he rightly pointed out that now amount of argument or law can stop this hatred. Only the light of truth can help disinfect it. They can't be allowed to get away with this anymore, and the first step to this is merely being aware of it.
So....pass this on....I don't care if in doing so you refer this blog or not, but please just PASS THIS VIDEO ON!Add a comment

Media apologizes for misattribution of "if I resign today there will be chaos" to Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak when it was actually said by Obama's top teleprompterAdd a comment
As a result, President Obama has had the moment practically all to himself — for better or worse — as he gingerly proceeds without a sustained counterargument on a matter that could reshape United States foreign policy for years. The lack of debate underscores the relative absence of muscular Republican voices on foreign affairs in general, a sharp contrast to the way things were four years ago, when President George W. Bush’s Iraq policy was a flashpoint between the two parties at this point in the election cycle.
To some degree, the silence from Republicans reflects a lack of substantive differences, especially on Egypt. House Speaker John A. Boehner set the tone on Sunday, saying, “Our administration so far has handled this tense situation pretty well.” And in the Senate,Mitch McConnell, the Republican leader, said Tuesday, “America ought to speak with one voice, and we have one president.”
From The New York Times
I love this dichotomy that the world likes to play out that either the United States can't screw this up and there's really not much we can do to influence the chaos in a sovereign nation.
The line appears to be it's time for Mubarak to go find a pyramid to crawl in. I know this makes Israel upset because the status quo was working for them. While I'm all for giving the concerns of our greatest ally there primary consideration, the man is in his 80's! They're just going to kicking the can down the road in what will feel like a flash in the pan.
Besides, why would the GOP argue for an Egyptian autocracy that operates on heredity after spending the last decade arguing for the proliferation of Middle East democracy? Is the NYT suggesting they want a fight on this?
I don't really know what else to say, I've stayed away from the matter for the most part because I don't know much about the country except:
There's a lot of dirt...LOTS of dirt...and it fetches a higher price on the market than the dollar.
The Nile River runs backwards so it probably also votes Democrat.
Their ancient society must've been pretty advanced, because you can't make pyramids with Lincoln Logs.
They have a huge sphinx, which I would bet is REALLY smelly...unless I'm mistaken that sphinx translates into English as sphincter.
When they talk word bubbles appear because the official language is hieroglyphics
Unless I have martial arts training that could kick Batman's ass, I will never go there.
I don't know what the end result will look like when the dust settles, which over there is definitely pure expression. If it's not it explains a lot about why fighting never ends...
Anyway, in the end I pray the people of Egypt get a better government out of this, because at some point that will matter to us all.Add a comment
