“And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord,” Luke 2:10-11.
Please take a moment out of your day to remember the men and women of our Armed Forces who are thousands of miles from home while we enjoy the freedoms they continue to fight for on our behalf.
This is especially priceless as it comes on the heels of the launch of “No Labels” of which Scarborough and Precious Mika are charter members.
Mere moments after citing Matthew 7’s instruction to “judge not, that ye be not judged,” Joe Scarborough denounced Jon Kyl and Jim DeMint as “un-Christlike.”
Scarborough’s strange self-contradiction came in the course of his diatribe against the two Republican senators for having criticized Harry Reid for threatening to keep the Senate in session through Christmas.
I love the smell of hypocrisy in the morning.
On November 15th, while Americans were being subjected to being groped by TSA agents and/or body scans, a North Carolina teen made his way onto the tarmac at the Charlotte airport and climbed into the wheel well of US Air jet. He later plunged to his death, landing in a quiet Milton, Massachusetts neighborhood.
The grieving mother of a North Carolina teen — who “likely” plummeted from the sky over Milton after toppling out of a Boeing 737 wheel well — slammed airport security last night, saying her boy should have been stopped on the tarmac.
“I thought that after 9/11 there would be more security, especially on the ground,” said Jonette Washington, mother of 16-year-old Delvonte Tisdale.
“He was a good kid. He wasn’t really going to Boston. He was trying to get to Baltimore to get to me,” she tearfully told the Herald.
In a stunning announcement, Norfolk District Attorney William R. Keating said yesterday it’s “likely” the teen climbed into a wheel well of a jet in Charlotte, N.C., on Nov. 15 and fell to his death over Milton at about 9 p.m. Keating said a neighbor heard “a loud crashing noise” around that time.
Imagine what could have happened if it had been a terrorist who had climbed into that wheel well and not just a messed up teenager? It’s a good thing we’re groping nuns and toddlers at airports, huh?
69 years ago today America was attacked by Japan and our country was forever changed. It was the awakening of the Greatest Generation for whom we all owe a debt of gratitude. Without them, who knows what our lives would be like.
The recovery that wasn’t continues at breakneck speed.
NEW YORK (CNNMoney.com) — The economy continued to add jobs last month, but at a much slower pace than expected, while the unemployment rate rose to 9.8%.
U.S. employers added 39,000 jobs to their payrolls in November, the Labor Department reported Friday. That marks a major slowdown from October, when the economy added an upwardly revised 172,000 jobs.
November’s numbers also fell short of the 150,000 gain that economists surveyed by CNNMoney.com were expecting.
And what would an Obama loving news outlet story on unemployment be without the “U” word:
The unemployment rate, which is calculated in a separate survey, unexpectedly ticked up to 9.8% after holding at 9.6% from the prior three months, the government said.
