Pena Nieto Wins MRIOTD Award

Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto thanked California on Thursday for improving the lives of illegals (he incorrectly refers to them as immigrants) from his country, including legalizing drivers’ licenses for “undocumented migrants” and making it easier for them to work and start businesses.

For Mexican President Nieto (and national Coyote) to thank a state in the United States for making it more tempting and so easy for Mexicans to leave their country, Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto wins the Most Ridiculous Item Of The Day award.

Perdido Beach Mouse v2.0, MRIOTD Award Winner

Never ceases to amaze the hubris of some who assume the role of our Maker. Some command to lower sea level and adjust the world’s thermostat, others, like the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, refuse to take NO for an answer where rodents are concerned.perdido_beach_mouse1

The Perdido Key beach mouse, was wiped out naturally and was “re-introduced” in 1987. And again, it was wiped out naturally by hurricane Ivan. Not to be outdone by mother nature, the mouse has been captive bred since then. And people who are supposed to be environmentalists are about to infest the environment, Perdido Key, with a rodent that has twice proven it can not sustain itself, its survival rate is zero, in an environment where people have a survival rate of 100 percent.

And this makes sense to who? For this reason the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service wins the Most Ridiculous Item Of The Day award.

Mandela “Interpreter” Wins M.R.I.O.T.D. Award

The memorial service for Nelson Mandela was full of side shows that qualified for the Most Ridiculous Item Of The Day award. Winning out over President Obama’s selfie moment was the man, who’s name is still unknown, that posed as a sign language interpreter.

According to Cara Loening, director of Sign Language Education and Development in Cape Town, part of South Africa’s Deaf Federation . . .

“He’s a complete fraud. He wasn’t even doing anything, There was not one sign there. Nothing. He was literally flapping his arms around.”

Running a close third place to this guy and President Obama, is the security detail that allowed this stranger to be on the stage inches away from our president and other heads of state. In these days of explosive vests and who knows what else, the world can consider itself lucky that it didn’t end up that way.

Sen. Harry Reid Wins M.R.I.O.T.D. Award

Sen. Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) said this on the floor of the Senate.

“It’s very clear that private-sector jobs have been doing just fine; it’s the public-sector jobs where we’ve lost huge numbers, and that’s what this legislation is all about.”

It is with some reservation that Sen. Reid wins the Most Ridiculous Item Of The Day award. Not because he isn’t deserving of it, but rather that as a conservative, I have some compassion for my fellow-man. He might have some mental health issues for making such a statement and need professional help.

Hu News That China Won’t Hear

The talks between Chinese President Hu Jintao and President Obama had some give and take on the economic front. The ‘human rights’ front was another issue. Hu pretty much excused his human rights atrocities as nothing more than growing pains.

Hu said China is a developing country with an enormous population facing challenges in economic and social developments. He said human rights must be viewed under those circumstances.

Pains like his communist government can not handle, manage, or feed its huge population. So some executions here, forced abortions and sterilization there, and other population control measures, imprisoning political dissidents and Nobel Peace Prize winners is just something they have to do while working to, get this, ‘improve the lives of our people and promote democracy and rule of law.’ {emphasis added}

At the risk of jumping the gun on this one, The Lunch Counter is holding back awarding President Hu Jintao the Most Ridiculous Item Of The Day award. The clincher will be when it is learned that no one in China will hear or see those words. You can bet the ranch that Hu’s statement was for U.S. consumption only. It was the bone President Obama wanted to make the visit look ‘productive.’

NPR Wins M.R.I.O.T.D. Award

A day after George Soros offers a million dollars to NPR, a left-leaning and publicly funded radio broadcasting network, for the purpose of hiring the right kind of journalists and reporters, Juan Williams gets fired. That fact alone has people wondering if the firing of Williams was not more than a coincidence.

All that aside. Let’s take stock into recent facts of history, beginning with the airliner attacks on 9/11 and the people who hijacked the planes and crashed them into buildings, killing everyone on board and about 3,000 others. Then add to that the warnings that the Department of Homeland Security, and both presidents since, have made over the years and again just recently in Europe, and as Juan recalled, the terrorist who last week said, at his trial in New York, that this was just the beginning of jihad against the West.

When Americans are cautioned to be aware of your surroundings, what does that mean to you? To me, it means exactly what Juan put into words. It’s too bad that the PC Left, and the Hezbollah supporting C.A.I.R. (Ameriphobes) prefer to not be faced with facts or the truth, but that’s their problem and should not be Juan Williams’ problem.

For their blatant firing of Juan Williams for the reason they stated, National Public Radio is awarded the Most Ridiculous Item Of The Day award.

I’m Just Like You, Really?

Unless you’ve been in solitary, you’ve already heard the flap about the Obamas and their vacations. I am reminded of Michelle Obama’s comment, I think it was on the first night of the Democratic National Convention two years ago when she said ‘I’m just like you.’

Yeah right. I used to live in the northeast. And it never really occured to me to go to Florida for a 1-day vacation. Or spend a quarter million  dollars for a week in Spain with my child and a couple of friends. Never mind that the economy and unemployment are in bad shape right now. Now I know where her husband gets his audacity from. It’s all in the family.

Speaker Pelosi, M.R.I.O.T.D. Winner

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), for her contention that unemployment checks are like creating jobs, wins the Most Ridiculous Item Of The Day award, by unanimous decision.

As a small business owner and employer, I’ve been told by people on unemployment that they’d much rather collect an unemployment check than go to work. Problem is, trying to make a person who is out of a job more comfortable with unemployment minimums rising, and the length of time they can collect increasing with extensions upon extensions,  the administration and Congress are creating negative incentives for people to find and take work.

What ought to be obvious to everyone by now is, that after billions and trillions of dollars spent and borrowed in the last eighteen months under the pretense of jump-starting the economy, that President Obama and his circle of advisers either don’t have a clue how to stimulate the private sector economy to create self-sustaining jobs, OR, they are hell-bent on destroying the private sector in order to rebuild the country into another Europe.

Which one works for you?

Pakistan Wins M.R.I.O.T.D. Award

The proverbial chickens are coming home to roost in Pakistan, and possibly to a radical mosque near you.

You may recall a few weeks ago, the comedy TV show ‘South Park’ included a character representing Mohammed wearing a bear suit. It was totally in character for South Park to do something like that, since they take no prisoners and pull no punches. They make fun of everyone and everything. Religious figures, political figures, whoever or whatever.

Some Muslim somewhere complained, and surprise! South Park producers caved. (no pun intended) They blocked out the character in repeat showings of that episode.

Then another person put up a Facebook page called ‘Everybody Draw Mohammed Day’ where you could apparently draw or upload your representation of Mohammed.

For those who don’t know, Mohammed for a Muslim is like Christ, God, or Buddah for other people. Except that Mohammed is from this earth and regarded as a prophet by Muslims. I don’t know if he had a job or trade, just that he was a prophet. No miracle birth, wise men, etc.. The other difference is that some Muslims get their shorts in a wad real quick when someone puts up an image and calls it Mohammed. Some get so extreme as to commit murder over it, which, by what I’ve seen in the Koran, is against Mohammed’s teachings. Go figure.

There is an interesting element to this religion in that some-one’s faith can be so shaken by a drawing or a picture that it would cause them to go crazy. This does not happen in any other religion that I know of. These same radicals have drawn stupid pictures of Christ and the Virgin Mary and those whose religion is not referred to as a ‘religion of peace’ just blow it off as a crazy picture drawn by an insensitive bastard and move on with their life. Don’t know why they can not do the same.

So Pakistan, literally facing attack and suicide bombers from the radical elements of Islam on a daily basis, had blocked Facebook from the country. And for that, Pakistan wins the Most Ridiculous Item Of The Day award.
