Robertson: ...Now with medicine and nutrition in our society people are living a great deal longer and consequently they should be working longer and they should not begin retirement age at 65 or 66, we should push that retirement age up to 70 or 72 and it?s not going to hurt anybody. People really like to work they don?t want to sit around----there?s nothing worse than sitting around in a rocking chair, who needs that.
Yea Pat, you go support your beloved GOP's agenda with plans to work people into their graves. It's easy picking up a shovel or unloading boxes for UPS when you're sixty nine with arthritus. What does he care. He's worth millions of dollars, but talking on TV is a big strain on the back I'm told. Let me ask you, Pat. What jobs will be available to seventy two year old's?
This man represents religion in America? maybe he's hoping that if grandma does continue to work she'll keep the donation checks coming.

As much as I’d love to see Diana Prince be the subject of a movie franchise or a television show (though, of course, not one by David E. Kelley), that seems like a pretty remote possibility at this point. But at least I’m glad to hear that Fox is considering a tantalizing alternative, a story [...]

James O'Keefe: Criminal.Don't you just hate when you're on probation for trying to break in and bug the office of a United States senator and the super-mean federal government won't give you a special exemption to ignore your probation just because you are likely to continue your crime spree because you can't stop getting yourself into legal trouble every time you leave the house and maybe that's not a good enough reason to get a special exemption?
Yeah, I hate when that happens:
JMI Tampa Luncheon Update: Due to unforeseen circumstances, the guest speaker for our luncheon, James O?Keefe, will not be able to personally attend JMI?s event tomorrow. However, he will participate via Skype with both remarks and a robust Q & A session. Come hear why the federal government has revoked permission for him to travel to Tampa.Now, who among us doesn't love a good euphemism? And "citizen journalist" sure is a good one for a 27-year-old guy who lives in his parents' basement and enjoys amateur film-making about a range of topics, from conservative porn, to National Public Radio executives saying things they didn't actually say, to Medicare fraud that doesn't exist, to exposing a "dead" voter who isn't dead.
Despite the government?s restrictions, not all is lost for this citizen journalist in the age of new media. Even by Skype, if you have yet to see one of Mr. O?Keefe?s presentations, we believe you will find it thought-provoking and entertaining.
When not making fake videos, this "citizen journalist" enjoys swinging by Occupy Wall Street demonstrations just to be a dick, in possible violation of his probation; avoiding the entire state of New Hampshire for fear of being served with a grand jury subpoena; and committing voter fraud with his friends?the ones he's not busy suing to stop them from talking about all those times he sexually harassed them.
Yup. "Citizen journalism" at its finest.
