Tantrum Part 2

Tantrum Part 2

Speaking more on the misleading Media......... how can anyone believe the polls the Media loves so much to report. I don't care about polls and people need to stop caring for them as well. 100 or 1,000 people polled do not speak for the nation of 300+ million!! I do not see the "landslide victory" for the GOP this November as the experts are predicting, but I do see some gains. The one gain the GOP had and stumbled on is in Nevada.

If you personally know me, then you know from day one that when Pelosi/Reid became Speaker and Majority leader I said "Democrats couldn't have picked worse people." Heck, my own mother called BigPoppa a sexist pig for talking ill of Pelosi (she now agrees with BigPoppa). However, the GOP has let Nevada slip through their oil slick fingers.

Seriously, I think if Harry Reid were to unfortunately pass away within the next few months, Sharon Angle would still lose (kinda like John Ashcroft in Missouri 2000).

Since she won the primary, Angle has made me gaffes then VP Biden could in one week.

July 12- Said she opposed MGM's City Center Resort because it recieved Stimulus Funds. The fact is the project never did

July 8- Said "Rape victims should use their pregnancies as a way to turn lemons into lemonade." I guess it was her way of saying two wrongs don't make a right. So a 12 year old girl, who is raped by an Aides pedophile and becomes pregnant, should turn the situation into a right? Hmm, abortion is a touchy subject to begin with, but seriously she believes a 12 year old should give birth?

July 8- Like many, believes BP's $20 billion escrow account is Un-American and a slush fund. Apparently it's good she's running in Louisiana

June 30- Stated "unemployed americans are spoiled" and "there are plenty of jobs out there." Well I can admit there are plenty of jobs, but as San Francisco Chronicle's Kathleen Pender writes "there are 5 times as many unemployed as there are jobs." So 5 people for every job opening. Yet companies are still not hiring, no matter how many tax breaks companies are given, they are not spending the money and turning those tax breaks into the profit margin so people will buy more stock.

June 28- Deregulate the Mining, Oil & Petroluem Industries. Guess she hasn't been watching the news over the past year.

June 15- Personalize, not privatize Social Security. It's the same thing. Yes Social Security needs fixed, but by Personalizing or Privatizing Social Security, you are actually going to expand federal government!! You get your 6%, but a federal liason to help you invest that 6% into the stock market, but you have no personal control over that investment. It's the same rebranded idea Pres Bush had in 2004-2005. So any collapse in the stock market, like in 2008, you would have lost your investment, just like your 4o1K and other investments. In turn, screaming louder at the Federal government for more help.

Even the National Rifle Association is endorsing Harry Reid this November. Guess there are some Democrats that aren't that bad

Answer to last poll: The Federal Reserve system of banks and other US intragovernmental holdings account for a stunning $5.259 trillion in US Treasury debt. They rank #1, China ranked #6

Tantrum Part 1

"Make a Hole, Make it Wide"

Well BigPoppa's back again. So much has happened in the past week, so this is going to be a 2 part blog. So grab the frosty cold one, but make sure it's an American company owned.

Part 1.

First I hate jumping to conclusions and I, like many that followed or heard the story over the weekend pulled the trigger fast on Georgia USDA official Shirley Sherrod. I saw the video and immediately said she needs to resign.

I should've paid more attention to whom broke the story and released the video, Andrew Breitbart and his website. Breitbart is trying to regain some of the lost credibility he had since last year's ACORN Pimp fiasco.

Fiasco BigPoppa? Yes, fiasco. Many remember how James O'Keefe shot video of himself costumed as a Pimp and a female friend as a Prostitute looking for help from ACORN. ACORN was already in trouble with many Opinionators (Beck, Hannity, etc.) so this video was the golden ticket for O'Keefe and Breitbart's struggling Many went crazy and ACORN disbanded, losing millions in federal money.

Well 6 months later, turns out Breitbart admits O'Keefe fooled him by never watching the entire video and only viewing the Pimp scenes. Never seeing that O'Keefe and accomplice were not in costume but in normal casual clothing when talking to ACORN officials.

So now Breitbart is back 6 months later with the Ms. Sherrod/NAACP video. Now only showing 25 minutes of 45 minute speech given at the NAACP March event. Yes, NAACP members in attendance were wrong in their cheers of glee for Ms. Sherrod's accounts of that day, 25 years ago, when she met Roger Spooner to discuss Farmer's aid. To date the both have become great friends, with Mr. Spooner and family coming to her side these passed few days.

This is another case of misleading media causing a frenzied stir in an already black/white climate.

Reading many Facebook comments, people are hoping Ms. Sherrod has "lawyered up" and sues the federal government for forcing her to resign. That can be agreed upon, but I would like to see Ms. Sherrod take a stand against Breitbart and the misleading Media, trying to make a story out of video excerpts. I give credit to MSNBC's Joe Scarborough for not jumping like so many, waited, researched, and reported the truth on this matter.

Speaking more on the misleading Media..... (on to Tantrum Part 2)

Update: On Thursday July 22, Ms. Sherrod stated on CNN's American Morning show that she would like an apology from Breitbart and retraction of the incident placed on his website
