Oh Goody.

From a news blast by CNN:

Radiation from cell phones can possibly cause cancer, the World Health Organization said today.

The agency lists mobile phone use in the same “carcinogenic hazard” category as lead, engine exhaust and chloroform.

I remember the big scare when cell phones first came out people worried about this and they were pooh-poohed.

This bit from the TaxProf  is scary

WSJ: IRS to Small Business: ‘We Want Your QuickBooks’

The IRS, moving aggressively to collect more taxes from small businesses, is telling companies being audited to turn over exact copies of the electronic records kept in their business-software programs, according to a letter from an agency official to the American Institute of CPAs.

When you add this to Glenn Reynolds reminder that the Obama Administration has no problem with sic-ing the IRS on its political opponents, you have the makings of a real mess.

From the Gateway Pundit

Canadian delegation blocks mention of 1967 lines in Group of Eight leaders’ joint statement calling Israel, Palestinians to return to peace talks.

Group of Eight leaders had to soften a statement urging Israel and the Palestinians to return to negotiations because Canada objected to a specific mention of 1967 borders, diplomats said on Friday.

Sigh.  another job the Obumbler’s American won’t do.

Being president of the world has sometimes seemed a job more agreeable to Barack Obama than being president of the United States. – David Bronwich

“As those numbers suggest, the scale of American decay is entirely different: a trillion-and-three-quarter dollars in regulatory costs, a trillion dollars in college debt, four-and-a-half billion dollars spent by Washington every single day that we don’t have, 70 percent of which the United States government “borrows” from itself because nobody else wants to lend it to us — and a governing party whose Senate leader boasts about not passing a budget and whose plan for Medicare is not to have a plan at all and whose crusading regulatory reformer’s greatest triumph is getting Daisy the cow moved out of the same federal classification as the Exxon Valdez.” – Mark Steyn

Professor Krauthammer, who emphatically does NOT have a “professorial stammer,” has taken Ostumbler to task on his Israeli-Palestinian policies.

Pres. George W. Bush gave a written commitment that America supported Israel’s absorption of major settlement blocs in any peace agreement, opposed any return to the 1967 lines, and stood firm against the so-called Palestinian right of return to Israel.

For two and a half years, the Obama administration has refused to recognize and reaffirm these assurances. Then last week in his State Department speech, President Obama definitively trashed them. He declared that the Arab-Israeli conflict should indeed be resolved along “the 1967 lines with mutually agreed swaps.”

Nothing new here, said Obama three days later. “By definition, it means that the parties themselves — Israelis and Palestinians — will negotiate a border that is different” from 1967.

It means nothing of the sort. “Mutually” means both parties have to agree. And if one side doesn’t? Then, by definition, you’re back to the 1967 lines.

If there exists anyone who does not understand that B.Hussein Obama intends to facilitate the destruction of Israel they are uninformed, illiterate, or moronic.  They are either liberal or brain-dead (redundant, I know).

This is just too good not to pass on.  We know that Obumbler is lost without TOTUS* and he cannot put together a coherent thought that was not pre-written for him by some hack in the speech writing shop.  We were sold the “greatest orator” ever, and got a dim-witted stumble-bum who can read a feed pretty good.

You know this will not stand.  The lamestream media must protect their ideal.  They must keep the curtain closed around the Wizard.   Here’s a glimpse of how they plan to do it, courtesy of Michael Walsh at the Corner

It’s not that Obama can’t speak clearly. It’s that he employs the intellectual stammer. Not to be confused with a stutter, which the president decidedly does not have, the intellectual stammer signals a brain that is moving so fast that the mouth can’t keep up. The stammer is commonly found among university professors, characters in Woody Allen movies and public thinkers of the sort that might appear on C-SPAN but not CNN. If you’re a member or a fan of that subset, chances are the president’s stammer doesn’t bother you; in fact, you might even love him for it (he sounds just like your grad school roommate, especially when he drank too much Scotch whisky and attempted to expound on the Hegelian dialectic!).

If you’re not, chances are you find yourself yelling, “Get to the point already!” at the television screen every time Obama’s search for the right word seems to last longer than the search for Osama bin Laden. And thanks to its echoes of the college lecture hall, you may think it comes across as ever so slightly (or more than slightly) left wing.

Yes, I do find it annoying but simply because he doesn’t have a point.  Or an original idea in his head.  He is the ultimate left-wing empty suit who can endlessly parrot what is put in front of him but is lost at real leadership.  But you know the LSM will protect him.  they always do.  And the Stupid Party is doing their damnedest to make she that no one with a chance in hell will run against him in 2012.

We are doomed.
