Merry Christmas to ALL! Christmas News Video Clips

From Denny:  Wishing you and yours a wonderful holiday season.  Hope you enjoyed a tasty feast and stuffed yourselves silly.  Just wait until the New Year for those calorie regrets.  Enjoy your day and thank you for all your support this year! :)

Thought I'd put up a few cool Christmas video news clips of people who live the Christmas spirit of goodwill and giving to others.

Cleveland Mayor Spanks Big Banks On Abandoned Foreclosures

From Denny:  A crooked Congress and a delusional President continue to ignore the millions of foreclosed homes at their peril. America's Winter Revolution is about to erupt like a super volcano before the New Year has a chance to arrive.

Yes, Americans are that fed up at inequality, unemployment, under employment, unfairness, a police state mentality against peaceful protests and double standards for the law.

Mayors across the country are equally desperate about how to deal with the huge inventory of abandoned foreclosed homes getting vandalized.  The foreclosure scavenger thieves are quite sophisticated.  They check out the evictions of the foreclosed homes at the sheriff's department online and arrive the same afternoon to rip apart the house like a demolition team.

Political Cartoon, Video: Obama And His Fellow Election Pundits

Barack Obama
Image by jamesomalley via Flickr
From Denny:   As the 2012 election gears up to wear out the American public this month and for the next year nonstop, I thought I'd remind my fellow media guys - and now President Obama - just how bad they often look when giving their opinions, especially of their own accomplishments.  It really is the season of having to endure more delusional smug political propaganda from both sides of the aisle.

Tis the season of the cartoonish political pundit, spouting off silly opinions that rarely ever come true but sure makes for funny entertainment.  This pastel drawing is a classic of mine.  It was drawn when George Bush 43 began his campaign for president back in 1998.

The Repbulicans tout how they are gods we the voters are supposed to bow down and worship.  You see, they keep their message pretty simple:  Worship me; get nothing and like it.

Official First Family White House Portrait for 2011: The Obamas

Official Obama Family Portrait 2011

Where Is The Middle Class in America? Half Living Low Income Or Poor

The St. Columbanus Church food pantry in Chicago feeds 500 households a week, but some weeks it struggles to keep up with demand.
From  Denny:  Where is the middle class in America?  Half of Americans are now scraping by on low income or downright poverty, according to the latest census data.  That's 146 million doing without because of high unemployment, costs that have risen fast, stayed high and suppressed wages.

Mayors of 29 cities say they cannot meet the needs for emergency food assistance, food stamps, and are turning away 25 percent of applicants.  There are already 46 million people on food stamps, a former middle class that never asked for any help until now. Federal and states' programs are frayed at the edges.

And the Republicans claim the Democrats are screaming "class warfare"?  These figures don't lie.  Just where did the GOP expect the unemployed to go?  How do they expect people to eat?

Funny Jon Stewart Mocks Perry Romney 10K Bet

speaking at CPAC in Washington D.C. on Februar...
Image via Wikipedia
From Denny:  This is too funny.  Jon points out that on the GOP national debate stage a Mormon is gambling with an evangelical about who is the biggest liar of the two, to the tune of 10,000 large.  According to comic John Oliver, this feeds into the narrative of Romney being an out of touch rich guy millionaire.

After all, the average person in Iowa makes a $10 bet not a $10, 000 one.  Only rich guys throw money around like that demonstration.

How dumb can you get?  In the worst economic depression in 70 years you have a millionaire making expensive bets in front of an audience trying to figure out how to keep their kids in college and pay their mortgage.

John Oliver basically buries Romney as "everything tells the tale about Romney as the guy who just fired your Dad."

The Soul Calendar: Total Lunar Eclipse Put On Intense Red Display, Photos: 10 Dec 2011

The Soul Calendar: Total Lunar Eclipse Put On Intense Red Display, Photos: 10 Dec 2011: From Denny: The 10 December 2011 total lunar eclipse was the last total lunar eclipse to be seen until April 2014. At least we can view a partial lunar eclipse on 4 June 2012. It was reported to be an intense red, putting on quite a show in the sky. In fact, the type of red color was considered a rare treat.

Of course, when I went out to view it here in south Louisiana all I got was a completely cloudy sky. It's time for me to move up to higher ground, like the mountains. The Gulf Coast just doesn't cut it for proper skygazing. :)

From atmospheric scientist and eclipse expert Richard Keen of the University of Colorado: "During the lunar eclipse, most of the light illuminating the moon passes through the stratosphere, where it is reddened by scattering. If the stratosphere is loaded with dust from volcanic eruptions, the eclipse will be dark. A clear stratosphere, on the other hand, produces a brighter eclipse."

Polls: Voters Yell: Throw Them ALL Out!

From Denny:  Americans are fed up with a bad economy, massive job loss, bickering politicians and a weak President who does nothing about it all.  The anti-incumbent mood is downright antagonistic toward current office holders, according to the most recent poll released by Gallup.  In fact, it's the worst anger against politicians in 19 years.

How many members of Congress deserve to lose their jobs?  More than 75 percent of the registered voters said, "Yes, throw the bums out!"  By that large margin voters said Congress deserves to be kicked down the road.

Obama Step Aside: Should Hillary Clinton Replace Him for 2012?

From Denny:  Voters are severely dissatisfied with both the GOP candidates and President Obama.  Because of a rocky economy, 36 million foreclosed homes dumped onto the market since 2007 plummeting home values for everyone not foreclosed (another 20 million foreclosures on their way) - and uncertain employment - everyone is looking elsewhere for answers and real leadership.

The name of Hillary Clinton is on the lips - and in the hearts - of many Democrats disillusioned with the Obama term.  Many women are looking for more women in government to meet their needs instead of the current male dominated politicians playing ego games and stuffing their wallets while in office.

Poll: Americans Want To Cut Congress Pay, Work Longer Hours

The western front of the United States Capitol...
Image via Wikipedia

From Denny:  You can always tell just how bad a job Congress is really doing when the voters want to fire them all, cut out their health care and raid their pension funds.  After all, turn about is fair play for it is what Congress and the Obama White House have done to the American worker.

A recent poll from The Hill, which covers Washington politics and lawmaking extensively, reveals some dire predictions for the upcoming 2012 election.  No one in Congress or the White House should consider their jobs to be safe.  This is an angry electorate.

Since Congress has behaved so badly the past year the public now wants to treat them like a business owner with a bad employee:  fire them, scale back their pay, eliminate or reduce their health care benefits and cut out the pension funds.

Image via Wikipedia
From Denny:  Check out this Norwegian wingsuit flyer/paraglider as he leaps off a high cliff and soars a mile or so over the mountains near a river.  He finally pulls his chute open to finish the last glide to land easily on the road where a car is waiting to take him home.

What a rush!  He looked like a speeding bullet to the camera crew on the ground as he crested the mountain range.  He just zoomed on past them, going maybe well over 130 mph?  Turns out he was clocked at 250km/hour - which is 155 mph.

Norwegian Espen Fadnes thought this outdoor activity would be a fun experience for the weekend.  He has donned his wingsuit and performed this crazy feat so many times he has earned the dubious honor of World's Fastest Flying Human.  In fact, last year he jumped off the Swiss Alps in an international competition, taking home the win.

This is one thrilling video.  After the wingsuit ride they show you the making of the video and the mapping out of the air ride.  Take a look.

And hey, before you get all inspired and decide to go try this feat by jumping off the nearest neighborhood bridge, check out the second video.  It's an academy to teach you how to properly do the jumps and work your way into the final flying feat.

These people are maybe arguably crazy but it sure was a treat from the photographer's point of view, a view you could never see any other way.  Can you imagine if ancient aliens really did visit Earth and ancient man saw something like this?  Indescribable.

Jon Stewart Mocks Herman Cain Sexual Prowess

From Denny:  Leave it to Jon Stewart and The Daily Show comedy crew to lampoon yet another political sexual whodunit. In fact, Jon Stewart is praying Herman Cain does not quit the race.  He is the satire gift that keeps on giving in the season of Too Much Jolly.

Jon questions Herman Cain's excessive denials of knowing but not knowing - in the biblical sense - the parade of women across the 2012 GOP election stage.

He also challenges Cain's concept of sex.  Like how can you conduct a 13-year-old affair without having any sex?  Who ever heard of a 13-year-long platonic affair?  Better yet, who ever heard of paying off women with whom you never had sex?  Does that make any sense?

Jon postulates that Cain must be the worst guy in bed, the worst liar or the worst at getting lucky.  Anyway you look at it he sure isn't presidential material for this country.  We like our leaders to be virile and capable of sealing the deal.  After all, what kind of lousy negotiator would Herman Cain be with another world leader if he can't even get sex in a 13-year-old affair?

Of course, this latest sexual allegation from Ginger White only makes it easier for Gloria Cain to divorce her cheating husband.  After all, the media has basically paid for the investigator and the damaging witnesses to come forward.

Maybe this is just Lady Karma's way of balancing the books on a guy who thought he could continue to arrogantly lie and cheat without consequences.  One thing is for sure; Cain's wife will be enjoying this season for to her it will be the season of 'Tis To Be Jolly.  Her only question to the divorce court is this:  Hey, Herman, what's in your wallet?  Oh, yeah.

Jon Stewart Interview: Prez Clinton Talks Fixing Global Economy, New Book

NEW YORK, NY - NOVEMBER 08:  Former US Preside...
Image by Getty Images via @daylife

From Denny:  President Bill Clinton sits down for in-depth interview with Jon Stewart on what it will take to revive the American economy and create jobs.  His new book, "Back To Work," (Why We Need Smart Government For A Strong Economy) lays out specific plans for doing just that, recommending several strategies to current President Barack Obama.

In fact, just recently the Obama political hacks, Axelrod and Plouffe, met with President Clinton in the hopes to help the 2012 campaign.  Yes, the same political hacks that have F'd up this economy by advising Obama to cater only to the Republicans and ignore Democratic principles to help the middle class.  Those same guys that the Democratic Party should throw from the train.

Apparently, Axelrod and Plouffe were rattled by the recent poll in New Hampshire - the state that has picked the presidential winner in the last four out of five elections - where Obama is 10 points down from Romney as the favored candidate for the 2012 election.  Axelrod and Plouffe peppered Clinton with questions about the Independents since Obama is clearly out of favor with that voting block.

Well, you can always tell when Team Obama is not listening to Smart.  Clinton always shows up on all the talk shows and writes a new book.  Clearly, they don't take his sage advice.  There is even a new poll out about how Obama should step down and Hillary should step up to run for 2012.  Obama is that out of favor with voters and his party.  Hillary is that IN favor with said folks, polling well with Independents.  Of course, it does look suspect that Bill Clinton probably had a friend commission that poll but hey, the numbers still tell the story.

Clinton's new book spends the first half discussing the three decades leading up to our economic crisis.  The second half gives several specific prescriptions to return the economy to health.

From Denny:  Ellen Schultz, an investigative reporter, discovered that Big Business has taken the private pension plans for millions of workers - to the tune of 44 million people - and, instead, "turned them into profit centers for their companies."  As a result, the plans are severely underfunded. 

Did you know that as recently as 10 years ago, these same retirement plans were so flush with cash that they   experienced a quarter of a trillion dollar surplus?

Late Nite Jokes: Funny Herman Cain Sexual Hysteria

From Denny:  For weeks now, GOP candidate, Herman Cain, has treated the American public to the skeletons in his closet.

Surely, he realized he would end up as joke fodder for the comedians on every late night talk show.  What was he thinking to run for president and believe he could emerge unscathed?

Cain tries to bob and weave around the obvious issues - of now four very public accusers - like Rick Perry drunk in a political debate.  It just isn't selling.  In fact, the latest poll numbers are out that reflect GOP voters' dissatisfaction with - and hesitance - to now vote for Cain.

And, just in case, Herman Cain, doesn't see The Big Picture, our national comedians are delighted to drive home that very sharp point:  "Get outta the race, bud, 'cause you are cooked."

Be sure to check out the hilarious video clip below of Jon Stewart wearing out the inconsistencies and inadequacies of Herman Cain.

Ouch Outrageous Obnoxious and Odd: Funny Jon Stewart: Rick Perry Gaffe Gifts Joy Boners to Comedians

Jon StewartImage via WikipediaOuch Outrageous Obnoxious and Odd: Funny Jon Stewart: Rick Perry Gaffe Gifts Joy Boners to Comedians: From Denny: When the GOP presidential candidates screw up on national television, let the comedians count their blessings. Jon Stewart continues to be amazed - and thankful - for all of the Dope Moment gaffes from the Rick Perry campaign.

Just how many times can a candidate mess up like the gift that keeps on giving? Perry trots out on to the various talk shows to try and convince voters he was in on the joke from the previous night's debate. See? It wasn't really a gaffe like it looked. And who believes that sorry try? Well, no one - certainly not on The Daily Show set.

Worse, The Daily Show comedians all had to get in on the act to "display" their visual joy over the recent Rick Perry debate gaffe where he could not remember all three of the government agencies he claimed he would close down if he were in the White House. He managed to tick off the Commerce Department and the Dept. of Education but declared it an Oops! Moment when he experienced a brain freeze, OK, a brain fart to be truthful.

Dennys Funny Quotes: Calling In Sick To Your Boss: 15 Funniest New Excuses

Claiming your young daughter stole your car is just one of many bizarre excuses to miss work.

Dennys Funny Quotes: Calling In Sick To Your Boss: 15 Funniest New Excuses: From Denny: When you don't feel like going in to work, pull out your little Black Book Of Funny Excuses. Well, there is a new edition in town since a career survey was conducted.

During the colder weather of autumn and winter most people call in sick due to illness like colds and flu. Illness accounts for 39 percent of employees missing in action, according to the survey.

But then there are the creative types who just want an excuse to spend more time with their families. Others just want to spend more time in bed because the weather is too crappy to deal with. Or the procrastinators realize they need to get in some last minute holiday shopping.

So, what hilarious excuses are this generation of employees offering up as savory mind candy to their bosses? If I were their boss I would give them the day off just for creativity and the boldness to try to sell something so absolutely ridiculous.

Jon Stewart Interview: Condoleeza Rice Admits Bush Knew No Iraq Nukes

An official portrait of Condoleezza Rice. Cont...                         Image via Wikipedia
From Denny:  Jon Stewart discusses the marketing of the fairy tale ex-Bush administration officials consistently try to sell about the lead up to the Iraq War since they left office.  Condi Rice is no exception.

In a carefully crafted narrative she declared the necessity of going to war in Iraq.  She cited how Saddam Hussein was "a bad man" and had 16 United Nations Security Council resolutions passed against his regime just for starters.

Rice quoted President Clinton as sending a few friendly cruise missiles Saddam's way to discourage his nuclear interests back in 1998.  Of course, at the time, Republicans - and later Bush - ridiculed this "small bore" effort of containing Saddam Hussein but now they praise it.

She also failed to mention how the outgoing Clinton administration gave her loads of intelligence, warning against the 9/11 attack.  At the time she foolishly blew that off as a fairy tale and did not act on the intelligence.  That true story was conspicuously missing from her interview and book.

Then she quoted the Bible of 9/11, according to Republicans, of how the world would fall apart if they did not break it and attack Iraq.  Some of their logic leaves a lot to be desired.  Since it's fear-based programming, a lot of it does not properly connect the dots to make their case.

Report: Up For Auction, Who Is Buying Up Our State Judges?

From Denny: Author Charles Hall, of the report "Justice At Stake, Interest Groups Dominate Judicial-Election Spending" and Landon Rowland, Chairman Emeritus of the Janus Capital Group discuss America's bought government and the rapid pace to buy up our legal system on the Dylan Ratigan Show.

Our politics are rigged and now our legal system, via state court elections, is getting bought up as well by money interests.  The federal system of judges have to be appointed by the President and confirmed by the Senate but the state and county level is far easier to purchase - with no oversight to detect it or enforce if judges have been compromised.

The danger is that money interests are frantically busy right now buying up state and county judges for influence and arm twisting so they can win in court.  It's the Koch Brothers, and other special interest groups, who figured out that the majority of the law in America is decided on the smaller legal levels and they seek to corrupt that system.

Funny Late Nite Jokes: GOP Gaffer Rick Perry

Rick Perry

From Denny:  GOP 2012 candidate Rick Perry has been stepping on his tongue ever since he entered the race.

Considering how we here in Louisiana feel about the next door neighbor's bullying Texas culture, we Cajun types affectionately call "Shit Kickers," it could not have happened to a better politician.

After all, who has empathy for the guy who thought the BP Oil Spill was  good event planning?  And what about his whining wife who could dish out the meanness but not take it when kicked back at her and her husband?  Whining is not a sign of inner spiritual strength.

Jon Stewart Screams and Laughs at Pat Robertson Mocking GOP

OK, so this is NOT Pat Robertson but Glenn Beck: same difference.

From Denny:  If you missed the latest Pat Robertson incredulous statement, not to worry.  Jon Stewart saved the juicy clip for all to see.

How timely it is during the GOP political debating season of stupid issues and stupid political positions while Rome is burning.  Which is exactly what Pat Robertson, of the Moral Majority 700 Club, addresses.

I don't know which is funnier:  Jon's reaction to a sane statement from Pat Robertson that could not be more true about just how ridiculous the Republican Party has become or actually hearing with your own ears what Pat Robertson declared to his own party.  It's a case of a looney tune calling his party a bunch of lunatics.

Take a look and you will see why Jon renames Pat's TV show "The 180 Club" for he certainly has staked out an unusual position of his own:

The Soul Calendar: Jon Stewart Interview: Why Fear Mongers Will Not Accept Science

Lisa RandallImage via WikipediaThe Soul Calendar: Jon Stewart Interview: Why Fear Mongers Will Not Accept Science: From Denny: Stewart interviews author and physicist Lisa Randall, of the new book "Knocking On Heaven's Door: How Physics and Scientific Thinking Illuminate the Universe and the Modern World."

Stewart asks, "Why do we fight so hard to be illuminated by it?" He is referencing the conservative political atmosphere that fears science unreasonably.

Randall offers up that perhaps the reason science is not so easily accepted is because "so many of the theories are far removed from what we see in our daily lives - and not necessarily the most intuitive."

She believes that if people would go beyond just human scale - where only technology can measure - that perhaps they will not be so afraid if they learn more about it and be more interested.

Stewart poses the question as to why are God and science incompatible? Clearly, that is what so many people fear - like science will be 100 percent provable and certain, eliminating room for God.

Dennys Funny Quotes: Libya: Comic Talks Marketing Guru, Rebranding Libya

John Oliver, photo taken on October 11, 2009, ...Image via WikipediaDennys Funny Quotes: Libya: Comic Talks Marketing Guru, Rebranding Libya: From Denny: This Daily Show interview, conducted by comic John Oliver with former Libyan Ambassador Ali Suleiman Aujali, is a study in what we call in Louisiana "Crawfishing." Get a laugh and watch this 40 year loyal servant of Gaddafi walk backwards his life, his actions, and resell himself as a servant of Libya.

John Oliver: "Gaddafi is one of the most eccentric despots in the Middle East. This leather-faced, Ukrainian nurse-loving lunatic has been in power since 1969."

Then Oliver compares both their bosses as dictators: "We both work for charismatic dictatorial figures who don't like to leave their rooms unless it's to go on to TV. They are both addicted to the adulation of crowds. They both look really weird up close. They both like Jewish jokes - though probably for different reasons..."

Dennys Global Politics: Libya: Jon Stewart Comments on Celebrating Gaddafi Death

Jon StewartImage via WikipediaDennys Global Politics: Libya: Jon Stewart Comments on Celebrating Gaddafi Death: From Denny: Only Jon Stewart could send off Gaddafi with a Big Bang out of this world. He likens Gaddafi to the death of the wicked witch in the Wizard of Oz.

You watch the striped legs with fire engine red shoes suddenly withdraw and disappear under the house - that was dropped onto said naughty witch - and then the witch vanishes in the famous Hollywood magic.

So it is with Gaddafi vanishing off the world stage. Actually, he was also mocking the media for telling viewers about how graphic were the death photos of Gaddafi so Stewart had a little fun with this idea.

Moving right along, Stewart changes over to giving advice to dictators in his segment: Offers Strongmen His Dic-Tip. Come on; all American male comics love penis jokes and never fail to include them in every show. Of course, nothing like rightfully comparing dictators to Dick Heads - or Richard Craniums for the sensitive crowd.

What happened to screw over Americans?  You see Bank of America got greedy and shoveled toxic derivatives out of their recently purchased Merrill Lynch and into the part of the bank that is insured by the U.S. government: taxpayers.

That way the Merrill Lynch unit of Bank of America will not be responsible for what could be as much as $75 TRILLION in this toxic dump.  That's how much of this garbage they have in house. To get perspective on this, the annual American economy is only $15 trillion.
