When the camera [and the tape] is rolling.

*
If you don't believe that we are living in a new media age, the events over the past few weeks should go a long way in changing your mind. Consider the following: Some wacko makes a movie denouncing and mocking Islam and it causes riots all over the world. The future queen of England is caught au natural while on a private vacation. And, here in America, the republican candidate for president was caught on camera letting regular folks know just how he feels about them.

I love it. The world has become smaller and everything has become more transparent. This means that if you are a public figure you have to be more careful. When Mitt was hobnobbing with his big money friends in the home of one of the owners of my hometown Sixers, he never expected that it was possible that one of the servants --who, to him, might as well have been a piece of the furniture in the room-- might be taping his every word and movement from a cell phone. I am quite sure that when Kate decided to do her best Janet Jackson imitation she didn't expect some paparazzi with a high powered lens to be picking up what she was pulling out. But such is life in our new media age; everyone can become his or her own version of Cecil B. DeMille with the drop of a hat.

Finally, there are a couple of stories out there where I am glad that the cameras weren't rolling. The first one comes to us from out in Cali:

"A California chef told police he slow-cooked his wife’s body for four days after accidentally killing her, the Los Angeles Times reported.

The grisly detail emerged Tuesday during the second week of the murder trial of David Viens, accused in the death of 39-year-old Dawn Viens in October 2009.
In two March 2011 interviews with authorities that were played for the jury on Tuesday, David Viens recounted how he caused the death of his wife and disposed of her remains. The interviews were conducted in a hospital because Viens had jumped off an 80-foot cliff when suspected by police in his wife’s disappearance.

He said he panicked when he woke up the next morning and found his wife dead. Viens told investigators he placed her body into a large drum of boiling water and used weights to keep it submerged, the newspaper reported.
“I just slowly cooked it and I ended up cooking her for four days,” he said, according to the paper.

“You cooked on Dawn’s body for four days?” responded Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Sgt. Richard Garcia.

Before it was done,” Viens said. He didn’t say where he cooked the body, but Viens owned the Thyme Contemporary Cafe in Lomita, Calif., at the time.
The defendant did say he kept his wife’s skull. “That’s the only thing I didn’t want to get rid of in case I wanted to leave it somewhere,” he admitted, according to the Los Angeles Times.

He told police that the skull was in his mother’s attic in Torrance, but they did not find it there." [Source]

For today's special....let me stop.

The second story comes to us from Florida. (One day I am going to try and raise enough money to commission a study to research the behavior of people in Florida.)

"A frisky farm hand cuffed after allegedly telling police he masturbated with a donkey told a Florida court Tuesday that he wants his burro back.

“There’s got to be due process here. I paid $500 for her,” said 31-year-old Carlos Romero, according to the Ocala Star-Banner.

But Marion County officials want custody of the miniature donkey named Doodle, and plan to put her up for adoption, the newspaper said. The animal appeared in good condition after the alleged abuse.

Romero pleaded not guilty to charges of sexual activity involving an animal and animal cruelty. His bail was set at $2,000 and was placed into Marion County Jail" [Source]

Poor Carlos, there just aren't that many donkey pick up bars around. What's a love sick guy to do?

"The world has become smaller and everything has become more transparent. This means that if you are a public figure you have to be more careful"

Not everyone does. For example, there is a video tape of Barack Obama saying he believes that wealth in America needs to be redistributed, but the mainstream media outlets have pretty much ignored it. Andrea Mitchell said that neither NBC News nor MSNBC will air the video because they have not yet independently authenticated that the voice on the video is that of President Obama, even though it is clearly Obama speaking.

The LA Times has a video of Obama where he is toasting his friend Rashid Khalidi, a PLO operative while attending a Jew bashing dinner, and has refused to release the video to the public for many years now.

Then there's the Percy Sutton video, where he informs us that Obama got into Harvard with the the assistance of radical racist Khalid al Mansour, principle advsior to Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal. Somehow, that interesting bit of background information on Obama never got much publicity.

Obama has told us he's been to 57 states, with one more to go, but no one in the MSM thought that was funny. He also promised, on tape, to "bankrupt the coal industry", but not many people have seen that one either.

So you are right that there has been a democratization of media, but the gatekeepers still do a pretty good job shaping the reality of the majority of Americans. How else do expain the fact that Obama is President?

Romney is caricatured as an out-of-touch Mr. Moneybags, but in reality, he has done more to personally help people in need than Obama. Not just through donating money through his church, but physically helping -- going with his sons to move a single mother's furniture for her, that sort of thing.

Romney was, in effect, Mormon bishop of Boston for about a decade. That's not a glamour job: it involves a lot of boring meetings and a lot of dealing with individuals' problems. Mormons have kind of an informal private welfare state, so there is stuff like Mrs. Jones has to have a wheelchair ramp now, but her finances are tight, so how can we help her out? Who knows how to build one? Who can show up to help him? Can we a discount on lumber?

Real community organizing. Not like suing banks to make the government force them to give loans to people on the basis of skn color instead of their ability to pay it back.

The Obama campaign has adopted Bruce Springsteen's song "We Take Care of Our Own", but Mitt Romney and his Mormon church actually do take care of their own. Obama doesn't even take care of Aunt Zeituna, who lives on the taxpayers' dime in public housing.

Whitey's Conspiracy said...

Rawmoney has such solid, high teens/low 20 leads in the red states that his glass jaw's been hidden by his national numbers. Obama, on the other hand, has solid single digit leads in every swing state but New Hampshire and Colorado and low teen leads in the blues. IF, and it's a big IF, Obama hits 5+ nationally, red states like NC start going blue, but as long as he holds onto even the slimmest lead nationally, he still holds 274 electors. Something else, If he does turn red blue his coattails will save the Senate and possibly flip the house.

The rats were on the rails before Rawmoney started stomping all over his dick last week, some are hitting the water now, and it won't take much for the rest to jump.

I didn't say that they couldn't. To each his own. Just don't let anyone see you with your pet there my friend. Not everyone is such a libertarian when it comes to such issues.

Field, this donkey sexual activity breaks one of the Commandments. I am alerting Rev Farrell so that he can talk about the sins of screwing around with a miniature donkey.

Field, don't you think that in this century immorality is at an all-time high? Have you even noticed? I am sure your FN followers haven't. They have been totally asleep/ WAKE UP!

I can't take this sinful blog anymore. It's too depressing. I am seriously giving thought to leaving because my preaching to repent seems to have no impact whatsoever on Field.

Sometimes I Field knows Lucifer first hand. That is some baaaad karma. It's effing depressing.

I REALLY don't think the Romney campaign wants to get into a video tape of the past war. Trust me on this one.

Romney isn't afraid of any tapes or nothing. He fears NO ONE. Trust me on this one. You want war? Bring it on.

It's too bad Romney wasn't drafted. He would have made a great soldier and an even greater Commander.

Locals call it Flori-DUH for just such reasons.
I find it odd that modern people would yearn to a time when the very same people would be serfs, peons, indentured servants, starving workers or disposable cannon fodder. Mayhaps they fantasize being one of the elite and therefore exempt.
Perhaps the GOP should nominate rational candidates. Seems to me I recall an A. Lincoln or some such.
Oh wait, he thinks AfAms are humans.

only one is a WASP — Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, who happens to be married to an Asian-American.

...

Well, ... impenetrable, maybe not so much:

WASHINGTON—In a stunning disclosure this week, congressional sources
revealed that the acrimonious gridlock in the U.S. Senate traces its origins to a single November evening in 1986, when Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) engaged in sexual intercourse with Sen. Mitch McConnell's (R-KY) then-wife, Sherrill.


"The impenetrable stalemate on crucial issues is not due to a
widening ideological divide between parties, as we once thought," said Brookings Institution senior fellow Sarah Binder. "Rather, this inability to move the legislative process forward stems almost exclusively from a jealous and resentful Mitch McConnell, who has been unable to erase the mental image of Harry Reid pleasuring his wife one
wild, passionate night some 25 years ago."

Harry, you did Mitch a favor:
...
So Mitch McConnell has moved from the upper-middle class of a
lifelong government employee into the real upper class ($20M or so net
worth) of someone who married a woman with a rich father.


Who just happened to become rich from his connections with the rulers of communist China.


Villagers would say that this is old news, "free" trade is great for
everybody, we like Mitch and Elaine, and want him to return our calls,
etc.


So they have not reported on the source of McConnell's mega-wealth
(relative to the rest of us), and how that source has presumably, for 20
years or so, affected McConnell's positions on "free" trade and its
devastating impact on millions of Americans who used to have decent
manufacturing jobs.


McConnell and his wife are cheap-labor Republicans who hate the idea of American factory workers making more than $15 an hour.


Because that's what their benefactors want them to do.

Good thing it's in The Washinton Examiner instead of The Washington Post, that way liberals won't have to read it and mess up ther fantasies about Obama.

Only an idiot can't see it was a pre-planned attack.

I could post about ten more links verifying this. In fact, it's believed the "mastermind" behind the attacks was some raghead we had at Gitmo at one time, and let his ass go. (BTW....when is Obama going to close Gitmo? Is he making that a campaign "promise" THIS election, too?)

Sigh. So you think coddling those you are supposed to teach helps and is any way shape or form related to Obama's illegal alien family ignored by him but living here off taxpayer mandated funding?

Teach a Man to fish and you have fed him for a lifetime.

Keep giving that man a fish every day and you have created a useless democrat who will starve to death.

Uh Mold, you're talking about people who thought W, Palin and now Robbedme were good candidates. Gotta pander to the home school crowd.

PilotX said...

Notice they don't ever mention the republicans on welfare who can't fish for themselves and they will NEVER mention democratic fishermen who have good well paying jobs. No wonder they are so easy fooled, they believe the bull shit that conservatives are all somehow the only hard working self sufficient group. Ha! These dumbasses don't account for the lawyers, doctors and yes pilots who are dems that make more money than their entire family. SMDH

In re: to the individual who captured Mitt's meeting with 'his kind of folks';is he or she now in hiding?

I wonder why the Chef survived his fall for I don't get the impression that he's remorseful about his wife's death nor the fact that he cooked her to better dispose of her body.

The donkey thing is in the same class as the stories about men who exploited sheep when there were no women around.

Reality dictates drama and sci-fi now. As Arsenio used to say those things that make you go hmmmmm!

Yeah, how about that Romney, whose parents paid for his college, his house, gave him the $$$ to "make it big"?

So no parent should buy their child a car, help them when in need or at anytime in anyway?

These people are PAYING for their kids' insurance, or maybe the kids themselves might be.

What is family for, then?

take this job and shove it said...

==

On this day four years ago, after both conventions had ended and Obama was running against McCain and Palin, anyone making a bet on the outcome of the election would have predicted Obama the winner.

The polls were far apart with Obama way in the lead.

There was no candidate dragged down with a dismal record of leadership failure. It was just two guys starting from scratch with voters wondering which of the two had a better shot at getting the country back on track.

Both were senators and neither had much relevant experience, though Obama was clearly running a deficit in experience that mattered at least a little.

At any point up to election day, the oddsmakers predicted an Obama win. And he won.

This time? New ball game. This time, as we approach election day, it appears the world is closing in on Obama.

Fewer people are working today than the day he became president. He's got a gun-running attorney general. He's got flacks on the payroll trying to tell the public that an American who made a silly film is responsible for the murder of Ambassador Stevens in Libya.

He's trying as hard as he can to convince voters that ordering the hit on Osama bin Laden was the biggest whack of the last century. Considering the vainglorious way he keeps going on about it, you'd think Obama himself had whacked Hitler.

But no matter how much he praises himself for the killing of bin Laden, nothing changed for the better. No war ended. Islamic terrorism didn't stop. In fact, it got a recent boost, which came as a slap in the face to sissy-pants Obama.

And most recently Obama admitted that he can't change Washington from the inside.

That's his quote. Can't change it from the inside.

In other words, he's summed up his presidency by declaring it a failure. Worse, he's promising that, if re-elected, he'll fail for another four years.

That's quite a promise, though one he'd surely keep.

And we all know the republiCONs are doing all they can to ensure his failure. Et tu Brutis?
