Morning News/Views 1-12-11 @ Maggie’s Notebook

Before getting to the news and views you may have missed, today we will hear about the one-year anniversary of the Haiti earthquake. Rocking one of the poorest and most unstable countries on the face of the earth, the 7.0 magnitude quake demolished the lives of thousands, along with buildings and infrastructure, such as it was. Some 230,000 people died, 300,000 injured and ONE MILLION homeless. Hundreds of children were and are parentless. Haitians are still dying today from disease and filth. Aid money was manipulated and misused in many cases after loving and generous people from around the world gave all that they could. Little has been accomplished to improve the lives of those so severely affected – although it is not for the lack of a benevolent America trying. Haiti has not been a success story. Bet your day could have been a bit more peaceful without a reminder of this particular day in history.

Haiti Earthquake - January 12, 2010

The CBO wants Fannie and Freddie privatized. The Lonely Conservative has the details and what the CBO actually said. Wishing Barney Franks sleepless nights.

Beamish at the crank files documents some of the most famous historical assassinations and assassination-attempts, and proves their position as a “right” or “left” killer or would-be-killer. This is a great post, and I bet you learn something about events you thought you knew all about.

The Daley Gator has the video of an Ed Schultz’ hate fest with the hateful loser, Alan Grayson. He is all wee-wee’d up about Sarah Palin’s surveyor marks.

Social Sense always has spot-on commentary, so choose any one. After all, they are written by Mustang, but take a look at this Air Force Boeing 747 laser aircraft. This isn’t the airborne laser IBM-hunter you are accustomed to. Awesome video!

You know the Obama corruption we all talk about, and you know how we can’t begin to keep track of the Chicago machine inside the Oval ? Start with this at Scotty Starne’s Politically Incorrect.

Proof Postive has all the info on “crosshairs.” Did you hear about the t-shirt with Sarah Palin’s face in real crosshairs? Proof has the story.

Political Realities has the text of Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin’s inaugural address. After the swearing-in, the first thing she did was honor the military.

Left Coast Rebel has the CATO Institute and Rush Limbaugh discussing ObamaCare RomneyCare. Bring on 2012. It’s time.

Just a conservative girl has some thoughts for the new year. I know you’ve perhaps heard it before – all the atrocities of 2010 – but you haven’t heard them in quite this way. Read, be reminded, stay furious. Read also about a poll just out today and how Americans feel about the talk surrounding the Arizona tragedy.

I Own the World has a media guide for the journalistically challenged. Now, that would not be any of my readers, but my readers are always interested in fine art and great dialog.

  • Thanks for the link, Maggie. What a shame about Haiti.

  • I am going to sound heartless, but I don’t care about Haiti. Americans personally donated over $1 billion and still there is nothing being done. What a waste of money.
