Captain Hate

Greetings from NYC. I knew Jane before she was famous.

Danube of Thought

Jane, I don't know what blog it was, but I sure hope you gave the guy an appropriate blast, complete with quotes from Michelle.

Sue

We all knew Jane before she was famous. And dagnabbit, she gets to meet my governor, a man I've never met. Not fair...

Army of Davids

Zero is your jobs number this AM. How fitting.

Probably the best thing we could do at this point is scrap ObamaCare. The mandates (on states and business) taxes, regulations, fiscal problems and uncertainties tied up in that bill have to be a significant headwind to Main Street business hiring.

Dodd/Frank a close second.

PD

That philosophy perfesser seems to be arguing that education loans go only to substandard and/or lazy students. I suppose he thinks therefore we should abolish the loan programs, right?

glenda

that leftwing nit better leave our jane alone. Our. Wonderful. Jane.
Texas is coming to kick your A-- back to Leningrad...

peter

Even more troubling issue about the student loan industry is that the entire industry was socialized without any good reason. Numerous lending institutions offered student loans for decades. Obama came along, and they were all put out of business by a massive government takeover.

Porchlight

Jane, congrats again on the great work. Are you really going to meet Perry?

Sue

Obama is in panic mode. He is halting a smog regulation.

PD

Obama is in panic mode. He is halting a smog regulation.

That's just so he can bloviate without fear of violating the regulation.

Thomas Collins

Congrats on the JOM/Instylanches, Jane!

Wow, Jane - suddenly I am seeing your name in "lights" everywhere! Well done.

Captain:
I knew Jane before she was famous.

Yes,but only a select few of us have actually met her in person.

As I've always said,Jane is my favorite.

matt

Yay Jane!

The puerile commentary by some of these people of the Left is mystifying. It goes immediately to ad hominem and yet they accuse their opponents of the lowest and most vile acts.

There is no filter. There is no introspection. And these people won an election? The Age of the Hollow Man.

Janet

There is no filter. There is no introspection. And these people won an election?

Here is another perfect example from the Dennis Miller show. She can't name even one country. DM is so nice to her.

Extraneus

Heh. Great link, Janet.

centralcal

Janet that is a great link. Never mind naming a single country, she can't even articulate what her point is.

BB Key

TM thanks for this post, The Mooch says stuff like this and MFM stands silently, not asking for details..... When? How much? Why did it take so long to pay such a small loan? Were you an AA admission ?

peter

Minus 22 at the Ras today.

bgates

Janet, what are the odds that that woman would never consider voting for Palin because she's an idiot?

Neo

Valerie Jarrett, a close friend of the Barack and Michelle Obama is the former CEO of Habitat Company, which managed Grove Parc, a federally subsidized apartment complex on Chicago's South Side that can be accurately described as a slum. Jarrett is now a senior adviser to the president.

On Wednesday with great fanfare the awarding of a $30.5 million federal grant to revitalize Grove Parc--by tearing it down--was announced.

...

In fact, no mention of her role in mismanaging the unhappy homes was mentioned by the Chicago Sun-Times or the Chicago Tribune.

Charlie (Colorado)

Obama is in panic mode. He is halting a smog regulation.

Until 2013.

Seriously.

hit and run

For those keeping score at home,we are on Day Four of the new minus 20 and lower streak.

Or 23 out of the last 25 days,if you prefer.

Ranger

On Wednesday with great fanfare the awarding of a $30.5 million federal grant to revitalize Grove Parc--by tearing it down--was announced.

And that $30.5 million will go right into the pockets of the connected builders, who will then turn around and pump a big chunk back into the local Dem poltical machine. That's how the "Affordable Housing" scam works. The only people who get hurt are those who actually live in the substandard housing, until they are kicked out and shuffled off to other substandard housing. But who could be heartless enough to argue against "Affordable Housing?"

"Green Energy" is just an minor variation of this 50 year old Chicago con.

narciso

Rush is replaying the Frank Rich interview with Piers Morgan, in tandem with Brokaw
and company, to show how clueless they still are about Obama.

Extraneus

♫ If you don't know me by now... ♫

Clarice

I hope you all noticed that Jane is doing all this while I am locked up in the grand jury just wait till I get out,sistah!

centralcal

ha ha ha ha, Clarice! Only a few more hours to go?

centralcal

Both Ed Henry and Mark Knoller commented (along with photos) on Obama and his daughter Sasha leaving for Camp David via Marine One. No mention (or picture) of Michelle or Malia. Did she already go a few days early?

What is up with these people? They sure are keeping Michelle far away from the spotlight. I thought everybody just loves Michelle and she has such high approval ratings, blah, blah, blah.

GMAX

Until 2013.

Thats long enough. I sense a massive disruption in the force centered in November 2012 which should make any further nonsense out of the EPA moot...

Janet

What is up with these people?

We need to send an email to flag@whitehouse.gov

Neo

This was predicted when Obama announced the closure of Gitmo ...

... what do you do when you don't want to capture them any more ...

CIA shifts focus to killing targets

Janet

just wait till I get out,sistah!

Hahaha, Clarice!

matt

So the CIA goes from a secret organization that whacks enemy spies and topples governments to a kinder, gentler CIA that fails to anticipate pretty much everything to a parallel secret military establishment under a liberal Democratic president.

Things are getting curiouser and curiouser....

narciso

I guess life imitates art, if we've seen any film or TV program about the CIA in the last forty years, the idea that there are really only 300 or so AQ, even in the NorthWest Frontier, much less world wide, seems a fundamental misunderstanding of how Salafi and Wahhabi militants operate.

PD

Has Moammar "Days, Not Weeks" Ghadaffi left power yet, per Obama's instructions?

Jane

Holy shit! What is it, Jane Day?

TM, you rock as always.

Jane

Clarice,

You've got nothing to worry about except the fact that I am spending the day with my BFF Rick Perry tomorrow.

Now where did I leave that "Jane Won" sign.

Ranger

And in the "Will this madness never end" file:

DOE Still Putting Up Millions for Solar Companies

U.S. Energy Secretary Steven Chu today announced that the Department of Energy finalized a partial guarantee for an $852 million loan to support the development of the Genesis Solar Project... NextEra Energy Resources, LLC, the project sponsor, estimates it will fund approximately 800 construction jobs and 47 operating jobs.

That's right, $850 million to create 47 permenant jobs.

Paige

Jane is my aunt and a woman I truly admire. She has inspired me to be independent, informed and strong. I am proud to say I had to work my way through college and I required student loans that I am now paying off! I too will celebrate the day I pay them off on my own, probably by having a drink with Aunt Jane!

Jane

Awwww Paige - I love you!!

narciso

Congratulations, Jane,

Sue

Sniff...sniff...y'all are making me sappy here...

Hi Paige! Nice to meet you. Yeah, we all admire Jane, too.

Jack is Back!

Oh, Boy. Obama's team of wet nurses are now telling Ed Henry and others in the know that the Job's Plan that requires a Joint Session of Congress to hear and a debate and football game to wait isn't really the whole plan at all. A lot of it will be rolled out through the fall. IOW's - its damn hard to do this leadership and executive type of stuff when you have to interrupt your vacation and golf game. LUN

Its Greta Wire but scroll down to Ed Henry's report.

I have to agree with Odummy on this one - being POTUS is a hard job and we need someone who doesn't mind working for a living just the same.

"DOE still putting up millions"

"Auditors are now scrambling to uncover other bad "bets" that Obama made with our money. Upwards of $38 billion dollars is at risk."

Now, WHERE in Montana did DoT say he was going?

Hobbit House of Montana

Well .....

I guess a link might be in order?

Jack is Back!

Jane,

Of course the real test of your popularity and punditry will come this Sunday when we read in Clarice's Pieces of your new found national notoriety:)

Danube of Thought

Every day is Jane Day as far as I'm concerned.

Jane

Aw Gawd, you guys are too funny. Don't tell Paige that too often the joke is on me. I wish she would hang around a little, she is one incredible chick. (And I actually co-signed one of her student loans).

centralcal

From Ed Henry and Peter Barnes:

In what could be a way of lowering expectations for next Thursday's big economic speech, aides to President Obama are privately spreading word that he will not present his entire jobs plan in his address to a Joint Session of Congress.

Oh good, more speeches ahead.

NK

I only want to hear the following speech from BarryO--

"I resign."

narciso

This film has been getting very good, some would say suspiciously good press, in light
of the subject matter:

Stephanie

What happened to the fierce urgency of now?

Don't know about y'all, but I wouldn't classify my expectations as needing to be lowered or raised.

I expect precisely the wrong medicine and a much weakened patient. I expect he'll fully deliver on my expectations...

DebinNC

FOX:
Aides say Thursday's speech will be part of a bigger plan the White House will roll out throughout the fall with the president hitting the road for speeches and town hall appearances. Aides have already confirmed that Obama will be traveling to California, Colorado, and Washington state for one three-day swing later this month that will include economic events as well as some fundraising.

...with taxpayers picking up the tab.

narciso

I'm on needles and. . .sorry I can't go through with it, the Col. Renault suit against the banks are a nice touch.

Jane

Aides say Thursday's speech will be part of a bigger plan the White House will roll out throughout the fall

IOW's he's got nothing!

Lindsay

Jane is my aunt as well. She is amazing women and is a huge inspiration to me. I am thankful for her & everything she has taught me about being independent in this crazy world we live in. I am proud to say my student loans have been paid in full. That was a good day. She has tought me to save and be proud for every accomplishment big or small. Cause in the end it makes a difference.

centralcal

This is just for Sue!

Who Is This Baby?

centralcal

Okay, Jane, how many nieces do you have stuffed in your closet! lol!

sbw

Jane!

What is the idea of drawing more intelligent commenters to TM's blog!

Um. ... Thank you.

Pops

All liberals need a sign atop their computer which says:

NOTHING IS FREE, AND FREE THINGS FROM THE GOVERNMENT USUALLY COST AT LEAST TWICE AS MUCH.

No college education is free unless the professors are waving their handsome salaries....

Pops

Boehner should have insisted Obama present a workable, successful jobs plan for his own blood relatives prior to taking on the rest of the country.

Of course Obama doesn't think much of the unemplyment rate, in his family unemployment and on the public dole is more like 75%.

Testimonials R Us:

Jane is my kindred spirit sister and has inspired me to stay involved in politics. ;)

Love ya, Jane!

Sue

C-cal,

I don't even have to click your link to know it is my man, Dick Cheney. But I will click anyway so I can see him in his nappies. ::grin:

Sue

He's adorable.

centralcal

ha ha - I knew you would figure it out, but I did want you to see what a cute little guy he was and to read the quote below the photo.

Tiffany

Jane is my aunt too and she is an inspiration to all of my friends. We are so independent we only buy generic when we go to Shaw's. And by paying off our student loans we are free, free to spend, spend, spend on every little thing our heart's desire. Now my aunt is going to me Governor Good-Hair and I am so jealous. He's my fav and I know Aunt Jane won't go over the top and like curtsey or something when she meets him.

centralcal

What, Jane? No nephews? Sheesh :)

Jane

OMG that's so funny - Lindsay and Paige - are both my nieces, Tiffany I've never heard of. But hey Tiff, the more the merrier.

I do have 2 nephews so watch out.

centralcal

Uh oh, daddy. Newt's (tongue-in-cheek - I hope!) idea to get out of debt quick is to sell Alaska to Brazil and let them develop oil and other resources and sell it back to us. Or somethin'

Do you know how to Samba?

Charlie (Colorado)

Jane is my aunt as well.

Either of you two like older men?

Charlie (Colorado)

Um, three?

narciso

I think daddy's modest proposal from the end of 2008, seems sounder, 'winning' Newt, just like Charlie Sheen,

Jack is Back!

I'm not saying that the devastation in New Jersey, Vermont, upstate New York, parts of Mass. etc. are the same as Katrina but where the hell is FEMA? And where were the warnings from the NHC, FEMA, our fearless leader, and the governor's during the travels of Irene? The photos at LUN are of Vermont. We spent 4 days there in early August and drove everyday on Rt. 4 between Bridgewater and Woodstock and over to Hanover sometimes.LUN

Stephanie 'Kindred Spirit Sister'

That rids Newt and Duke and Duke of their Sarah problems, too.

Duke and Duke would probably award him the presidency in an orgy of delight.

GMAX

I actually co-signed one of her student loans

So what you are saying is auntie is a soft touch? Say could I borrow $20? I am good for it I swear!

You nieces are incredibly fortunate, btw.

Jane

So what you are saying is auntie is a soft touch?

Auntie knows a good bet when she sees one.

And Auntie is also incredibly fortunate. Paige and Lindsay are like my daughters and I am so blessed that they let me take that role. My job was to teach one of them how to be bad and the other one how to be good. And I'm not telling you who is who.

Oh and BTW both are very successful.

JIB, those are serious disaster photo. My sister, who lost her home in Cedar Rapids, Ia during the flood in Jun 2008, finally got a check this year.

Anyway I am now reading that the Information sector of the economy recorded 48K of lost jobs last month, and 45K of those were striking Verizon workers who have now returned to work.

So the numbers next month will no doubt be explained by an "unexpected" surge in employment, in the magnitude of this extra 45K.

Why do you get UE insurance if you voluntarily go on strike? Besides that Democrats wanted to buy union votes I mean.

Sue

Really? You can strike and draw unemployment? Well count me in then. I'm going to form a union of one and go on strike.

Sue

Claims were expected to fall partly because of the end of a two-week strike at Verizon Communications Inc. in which thousands filed for unemployment benefits even though they were probably not eligible.

Shoot. I just disbanded my union. No use in having one if I have to work anyway.

glasater

JIB-

It is so sad the old covered bridge was destroyed. You can imagine how photographers love to shoot those structures--especially during the high color of Fall foliage.

Who the hell is sitting in for Sean today?

Charlie (Colorado)

I'm not saying that the devastation in New Jersey, Vermont, upstate New York, parts of Mass. etc. are the same as Katrina but where the hell is FEMA?

You know, I'd wondered about that myself. Where the hell is FEMA, and where the hell are Anderson Cooper and Shep Smith crying about the poor refugees?

Porchlight

For Sue and for posterity:

Sue

Awww...thanks Porch. Don't you just want to pinch those cheeks?

cathyf
Why do you get UE insurance if you voluntarily go on strike?
Well, to be fair, when one is a member of a union lots of things aren't exactly voluntary -- including joining the union!

Did y'all see the comment from LyssaLovelyRedhead at Althouse re the Baby Cheney?

I assume that Baby Cheney is wearing a dressing gown in order to cover the set of giant steel balls that he was no doubt born with.

Heh.

Porchlight

Sue,

He is indeed adorable. I didn't think it was possible, but now that I've seen this photo, I love him even more. :)

Extraneus

I don't think we have to worry too much about whether FEMA will pay blue states. The question is whether FEMA (i.e., "we") should be paying anybody. I wonder what the Founders would think about FEMA.

(Actually, I lie. I don't wonder about that. They'd surely think they f-d up by writing a Constitution that could be warped that far in just a couple of hundred years.)

Imagine if we could bring the Founders back for another Constitutional Convention? Talk about a target-rich environment.

Extraneus

Althouse updated that post with another quote since I saw it earlier:

I traveled from job to job with one large suitcase, driving a 1949 Chevy for a while. When it had to be junked, I hitched a ride or caught a bus until I managed to buy a ’58 Ford. Living accommodations were never fancy, usually a room in an old hotel or roadside motel....

After work, the guys on the crew would spend considerable time in one of the local bars, ideally a place that would cash our checks or carry a tab until we made our first payday. We consumed vast quantities of beer. If something stronger was called for, we’d drink shots of bourbon with beer chasers—a combination that helps explain how I managed to get arrested twice within a year for driving while under the influence....

And I was sleeping off a hangover in the Rock Springs jail. It had taken a lot to drive the message home, but I realized the morning I woke up in that jail that if I didn’t fundamentally change my ways, I was going to come to a bad end.
