Pelosi's Religious Act

In typical Liberal fashion, Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) exhibits her religious roots by fabricating what she claimed were quotes from the Bible.

You have to ask yourself, does this performance portray deeply held religious beliefs, or was it a political act meant to appeal to religious voters? You know, those bitter and out of touch Americans.

When you consider that she has used this ‘quote’ in several communications and appearances on ‘Earth Day’ and for similar liberal conservationist audiences, what she is actually doing is trying to give the environmentalist wackos some religious creds, no matter how fake it is.

On Earth Day, Nancy Pelosi quoted the Bible: “The Bible tells us in the Old Testament, ‘To minister to the needs of God’s creation is an act of worship. To ignore those needs is to dishonor the God who made us.’ On this Earth Day, and every day, let us honor the earth and our future generations with a commitment to fight climate change.”

There’s a problem with her quote. It does not exist in the Bible. No surprise. Liberals see things in the U.S. Constitution that are not there either.

New York Times Co. Stock, Junk?

Moody’s Downgrades New York Times Co. To Notch Above Junk‘ is the headline in Editor & Publisher. Times are bad for the Times. Advertising revenue is down and is expected to continue in that direction, and until when is any one’s guess. Some would argue that a notch above junk is being generous.

Moody’s Investors Services believes . . .

the publisher’s free cash flow leverage will remain “significantly weaker” in 2008 than expected.

And . . .

The ratings firm assigned a “stable outlook” to the Times Co., saying it expects “greater revenue stability in 2009 as digital media generates more revenue and cyclical economic pressure eases.

I think it is wrong to expect that the downturn or recovery of the Times is part of anything cyclical like the economy. The Times’ downfall is self-inflicted by its product. And Mayor Bloomberg denies an interest in bailing them out by buying into it. Says he doesn’t want to get into the paper business. He may be a liberal but he’s not stupid.

Never fear, I’m sure there’s someone in Dubai interested in taking things over. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. al-Jazeera could make it official and just become a major investor. I mean, cutting out the middleman can be more efficient.

I love it how the free market works.
