Hypocrisy Personified

***Jon Stewart mocks Romney's wealth, but he's richer than Romney. Oh, but he's a liberal. So it's okay. This is humor?

In January Stewart exploded on-air over Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s income level. “That’s almost — that’s almost $57,000 a day!” he gushed.
But Stewart’s own income level brings him and his wife Tracey approximately $41,000 a day. The celebrity income-handicapping website Celebrity Net Worth lists his annual salary as $15 million and estimates his net worth at $80 million.

Being a liberal apparently excuses you from, well, just about anything. There's Al Gore, Mr. Environment, and his mansions; Obama's golf trips and vacations which the media ignores, but was indignant about when Bush took them, albeit much FEWER of them; oh, I could go on and on.

Just to put this in perspective, Bush played 24 rounds in 8 years, and got all kinds of grief for it.

***Concord Hymn, by Ralph Waldo Emerson

Sung at the Completion of the Concord Monument, April 19th, 1836

By the rude bridge that arched the flood,
Their flag to April's breeze unfurled,
Here once the embattled farmers stood,
And fired the shot heard round the world.

The foe long since in silence slept;
Alike the conqueror silent sleeps;
And Time the ruined bridge has swept
Down the dark stream that seaward creeps.

On this green bank, by this soft stream,
We set today a votive stone;
That memory may their deed redeem,
When, like our sires, our sons are gone.

Spirit, that made those heroes dare
To die, and leave their children free,
Bid Time and Nature gently spare
The shaft we raise to them and thee.
***President Obama: Biggest government spender in world history. And they tried to make him out as a fiscal conservative. They certainly abandoned that tactic in a hurry, didn't they? Wonder why?


***Men, like nails, lose their usefulness when they lose direction and begin to bend.  ~Walter Savage Landor

***Have a great day!
