Lets not talk about Michelle Obama losing her LAW LICENSE.

OK?

NK

Is there a link to a story about Moochelle surrendering her Illinois Bar membership?

ramirez again.


I think she went into inactive status..and I think if it was because of some wrongdoing we'll never know. I rather suspect it's because AA goes only so far and she really isn't smart enough to practice law.

Jim,MtnViewCA,USA

Michelle's law license is old news, right?
All the snopes style sites say it basically expired, nothing to see here, move along.
WND notes the verbiage on the form "on court ordered inactive status". Is the phrase "court ordered" standard boilerplate for this status?

Minimalist Poster

is this the link on the Obamas' law licenses:

http://www.snopes.com/politics/obama/lawlicenses.asp

or has something changed since then?

Jim,MtnViewCA,USA

re: Michelle's law license
WND also concludes "nothing to see here, move along" if you read deeply enough into the article.

Jack is Back

In Jacksonville (Duval Co.), US Rep. Corrine Brown (D), AKA, The Dumbest Woman in Politics, is suing in Federal court to allow voting on Sundays during early voting in Florida. Says by not allowing Sunday voting you are suppressing the "god-fearing, gospel singing, dressed in Sunday best" AA voter. They don't have time to do it during the week or on Saturday but they do go to church and its only right that after listening to the Preacher mention that Obama needs your vote that they be able to give it just like the money they give to the usher during services.

They used to allow Sunday voting but it was optional. Now with tighter budgets they cut back on it. If the court agrees with her they have to bring it back. Now I wonder if they will also allow Saturday voting for our Jewish population so they can vote after Shabbath?

In fact, you can set up the machines in the back of the Temple and Church.

re: Michelle's law license.

The continuing ed requirement can be a bit of a hassle. She wasn't giving legal advice to any clients so I understand it.

Plus, when as the Obama's would have you believe they're fishing through the sofa cushions and raiding the change jar to scrape together the $10,000.00 for summer camps,

that $350 annual fee could have been a deal breaker.

Both Obamas and Bill Clinton. Does Hillary have hers after having to take the bar exam a second time?

bgates

Nothing to see, except for the fact that she was plainly not bright enough to practice law or do much of anything else besides serve as a graft receptacle as her husband amassed political power.

Michelle Dunham (R) would have been the most popular role of SNL's 2007 breakout star, Brian Urlacher.

NK

JimMtnView-- thanks, the WND story was very informative. She left law to go into the welfare/Grievance Industry. She went Inactive to avoid paying renewal fees and possibly Continguing Legal Ed requirements. No biggie.

BumperStickerist

It's worth mentioning - as we enter this time of Election Lawyering - that local boards of election determine how the funds are spent to make sure their electorate --- the people in their voting district --- can vote.

Which is to say:

The Local Government spends Money to Make Sure Local People can vote.

Funny how all. the. damn. problems. center around districts in which Democrats were responsible for 1) choosing the election technology and 2) training the poll personnel.

President Obama joined a group of former NBA stars at a fundraiser at New York’s Lincoln Center Wednesday night. With Michael Jordan, Patrick Ewing, Walt Frazier, Bill Bradley and other basketball legends sitting nearby — “It’s very rare that I come to an event where I’m like the fifth- or sixth-most interesting person,” Obama said

What an asshole.

lyle

Ig,

As an Idahonian, I fear I must take umbrage at your tuber slur. Sure, a spud isn't very smart but that's beside the point...;)

Danube of Thought

Maybe so, Iggy.

Akin has now asked God to forgive him.. For what does he feel he needs forgiveness?

TexasMom2012

I think the idea about Sunday voting is to have rallies at AA churches in the morning, then send them to vote and maybe meet back afterward for a fellowship supper... Isn't that sweet, Bless her little Dem Heart.

Henry-- did you see my comment/link in another thread about the WS post about Wisc? You Badger State conservatives are doing a great job, you are a model and inspiration for those of trapped in Blue State Hells.

I said 'stupider' not 'stupid as' and so didn't consider it a slur. Looked at another way I'm declaring a subterranean starch brighter than the FLOTUS and a few other members of the bar.

You mean all those seniors who benefited from the Romney/Bain 80% investment success rate are going to complain and vote for the side that wants panels of bureaucrats deciding if they can live or die? Who has so tanked the economy they've lost their retirements, their homes, and have to let their kids and grandkids move back in with them?

Especially you, Chuck.

God love ya.

So what does everyone think about the dem convention having 20,000 Muslims in attendance?

Some guy

“It’s very rare that I come to an event where I’m like the fifth- or sixth-most interesting person,” Obama said

Most events have more people so he's usually down around 98th or 99th. He was just thrilled to finally move up to the top 10.

No wonder why they are 'strategically' limiting the size of crowds.

Via Hot Air Headlines, very bad news for ObamaCo:

Study: Romney criticism of controversial cancer ad effective with swing voters

The researchers said this was the first ad of the campaign cycle they had studied that resonated with true swing voters.

Too bad ObamaCo doesn't have anything else to talk to the voters about.

I think it's a good thing. They can sit the Muslim group next to the GLBTETC. group. Get some dialog goin'.
On the other side can be the angry lib women group....& then the abortion cheerleaders also.
Maybe some Code Pink vaginas could introduce the Muslim participants?
It's all good.

Gawker.com has just obtained thousands of Bain capital financial documents.

And nobody has stared more blankly at sheets of paper since Barry visited the National Archives in 2009.

Gawker.com couldn't figure out how to use private equity financial documents to housebreak a dog without causing an electrical fire.

"Dateline October 27: Gawker.com has been reviewing Bain financial documents for several weeks, and we are now in a position to report that the documents contain numbers, including some very large numbers, which we believe represent some sort of money. We can also report that we have a very bad headache and would like to lie down quietly for a very long time."

Gawker.com: Your home for celebrity gossip and forensic accounting on the web.

I know what you're thinking: "Gawker.com is investigating complicated financial transactions? Why isn't TMZ on this?" But Perez Hilton is still auditing the major banks for Basel III compliance.

This reminds me of the 80s, when Mad Magazine and Tiger Beat broke the S&L scandal.

"Impressive resume, Mr Schrader. London School of Economics, three years with Morgan Stanley, the St Louis Federal Reserve, and above-market returns with your hedge fund since the crash. Splendid. Welcome aboard. Your first assignment will be a quantitative comparison: Is Kim Kardashian's booty bigger now than when she was with Reggie Bush? Try for a matching photo set - same light, outfits, etc."

UPDATE: After extensive study, Gawker has determined that the documents are not actually financial records, but script transcripts from every episode of The Simpsons to feature the Arnold Schwarzenegger manque 'McBain'.

More advice from President Obama on how to spend other people's money.

CNS News reports that Obama said that Romney's donors should be sending their Romney donations not to Mitt, but to college Scholarship funds: “They should be contributing that to a scholarship fund to send kids to college."

But last month Obama wanted American's to send him our beer money and our wedding gifts for his campaign.

Via Patheos:

The Chronicle of Philanthropy has released a comparison of the giving rates of all 366 major metropolitan areas.  I won’t paste the whole chart, but I would direct your attention to the top 25 areas and the bottom 25.  First, here’s the top 25:

 

And now, the bottom 25:

I think it safe to say that Mormons rule in the charity giving world. It is estimated that Mitt Romney has given $7 million to charity in the past 2 years. Of course, unlike those in the Blue Hells in the bottom 25, he doesn't care about the poor, the needy, the hungry, the elderly, or anyone else but himself.

CNN Money:

Fortune - Gawker today published what it's calling The Bain Files, hundreds of pages of audited financials and private placement memoranda for old Bain Capital funds. Let me save you some time: There is nothing in there that will inform your opinion of Mitt Romney. How do I know? Because I saw many of the exact same documents months ago, after requesting them from a Bain Capital investor. What I quickly learned was that there was little of interest, except perhaps for private equity geeks who want to know exactly how much Bain paid for a particular company back in 2006.
