Who The F*** is Sharon BialeK?

Sharon Bialek came forward with sexual harassment allegations against presidential candidate Herman Cain after recent reports that two women had been financially compensate (fancy term for “Paid”) back in the 1990s because of some “alleged” sexual harassment by Cain and a third woman had considered filing a complaint against Cain around that same time.

Obviously the Cain campaign maintains that these allegations are false

In an effort that is obviously intended to cast doubt, distrust and suspicion on Sharon Bialek an outfit calling themselves “the Republican businessman’s advisers” put out a news release Tuesday that starts out asking “Who is Sharon Bialek?” and goes on to do it’s level best to take anything they could find out about her and paint the most negative picture they could.

It says she’s had a “long and troubled history, from the courts to personal finances.” It calls attention to some news reports that mention her involvement in a paternity case and a bankruptcy filing.

I don’t see where that’s even relevant. So she’s been involved in a paternity case and she’s had to file bankruptcy. Big deal. Both of these are things that thousands of people are involved in every single day without there being any reason to suspect that anything improper is going on.

For that matter, the way the economy is going it wouldn’t surprise me to find out that bankruptcy filings are reaching record proportions.

That report also points out that her case is being handled by celebrity attorney Gloria Allred and questions who is paying for her legal representation. It also tries to, without actually saying so, accuse her of doing this just because she’s been promised money from the media for her story or that maybe she’s been offered a job in exchange for doing this.

Bialek replied to these thinly veiled accusations by saying that Allred has taken the case with no fee and that nobody is paying her for her story OR offered her a job for going public. She further admits that she’s had money problems and that this has included bankruptcy.

Like I said, her money problems are nothing unique. The thing that I think is far more suspect is the extent that the Herman Cain campaign and it’s supporters are going to practice character assassination.

Does Herman Cain in fact have something to hide? Is the reason for all this crap that he’s actually lying through his teeth about the whole thing?

I don’t know the answers to that question but I do know this: I will NOT vote for or support him specifically because of this matter. I realize that all politicians are, by their very nature, skilled and well practiced liars but there’s something indefinable about Herman Cain’s case and the way it’s playing out in the media. The more he flails about saying he didn’t do it, the more I think that maybe he did.

Of course, the general public may never know for sure.

Will Obama Read The Writing On The Wall?

As we move farther and farther into the Obama presidency I have noticed that those who make it a point to defend him and his policies & decisions are definitely becoming fewer and farther between.

Oh it’s not like he’s in any danger of not having a significant number of supporters any time soon. Yet it’s also true that more and more people are finding things that they don’t like and they’re much more willing to say so.

While I don’t regularly follow Fox news (or any particular news source really, I tend to skim from several), I ran across a poll today that kind of illustrates what I’m saying.

The question asked was Has Obama Done a Good Job Handling the Libyan Situation?

As I write this there have been 97,418 total votes. Here’s how they break down. Oh, for the record, I voted “No” in this poll.

Not sure — Obama proceeded with caution, but did he wait too long? 3.36% (3,272 votes)

Yes — He was correct to wait. Now it’s time for Plan B. 5.62% (5,473 votes)

No — Obama’s inaction gave Qaddafi a lifeline. 89.23% (86,929 votes)

Other (post a comment) 1.79% (1,744 votes)

I’d say that this is one indicator that the days of people blindly jumping on his bandwagon are about over.

I just hope it means that he will NOT be re-elected.

New Mexico Senate Guts Law That Would Prevent Illegal Aliens From Getting Driver’s Licences

There’s a genuine full on “Duh Moment” happening in New Mexico. It seems that a state Senate committee gutted a bill passed by the House that was intended to stop the practice of allowing illegal aliens to get driver’s licenses. Instead they establish stronger penalties for fraudulently getting a license.\
Governor Susan Martinez calls the Senate’s actions a sham. Her position is that giving driver’s licenses to illegal immigrants is a bad idea on the grounds of it being a security risk.

My opinion?

This is a neck deep pile of stupidity. People who enter this country illegally have shouldn’t expect anything since the can’t bring themselves to come here legally.

I think that if you don’t have the sense to enter this country LEGALLY, then you have no right to a driver’s license. For that matter, the ONLY right you have is to leave and stay gone until you can bring yourself to enter this country legally, following the rules.

I don’t mind people coming to this country one bit. I *DO* mind when they can’t bring themselves to obey our rules for entering this country. I *DO* mind when they come here and expect us to learn their languages instead of them having the sense and courtesy to learn OURS. It’s funny how people in other countries get upset when American’s go there and don’t even attempt to learn the local language and customs but the don’t feel the need to give US the same courtesy.

If you want to come here, great. This is a great nation (in spite of many of its leaders being certifiable idiots!). But have the courtesy to learn and use English and obey our laws! (I realize that some of them are pretty stupid but that’s a whole other subject.)

Beyond Ridiculous

My father used to have an expression he would occasionally use to describe how difficult something was. He’d say it was “Like playing tiddlywinks with manhole covers” which, if you’re familiar with the game (no? google it), should give you a pretty good idea that whatever he was talking about was *very* difficult.

I sometimes think of that comparison these days when I hear the absolute BS coming out of Washington that says the economy is recovering. Specifically that getting a straight, truthful answer without sugar coating, doubletalk & lies to make it palatable to the voting public is like playing tiddlywinks with hot tub covers. This is because I can’t even see how *anybody* can get the idea that the economy is recovering at all. Gasoline is back up to nearly $3.00 a gallon here locally and nationally it’s averaging 15 to 20 cents a gallon higher.

Just last week a former exec of shell oil predicted that by the next election gas will hit $5.00 a gallon! This increase in fuel prices is going to affect *EVERYTHING* as the cost of shipping stuff goes up to cover the increasing fuel prices. That cost will be passed on to those paying for those shipments and from them it will be passed on to the consumer.

Just remember this when it comes time for the next election. We need to get obama and his cronies out of office A.S.A.P. before they break us all.

Proof No One Is Safe

This week’s episode of “Points of View” should prove once and for all that nobody but nobody is safe from being called out as a boob if that’s how they’re seen acting.

It matters not who you are or what your position in life is. Get caught displaying signs that you’re a boob and there is the chance that Bob will slam a bra on you and declare you the “Boob of the Week” award winner.

Even if your name is Barrack Obama.

Don’t believe me? Watch this video.
