The Marriott Casa Monica Hotel in St. Augustine = Jerks

November 13th, 2011 | No Comments | Posted in America the beautiful, Jackass

Has a heck of a lot of FAIL going on.  They fired an employee for wearing an American flag pin.

Late to the party, but what the heck.

Representatives for the Casa Monica Hotel are defending a company policy that prohibits employees from wearing badges and buttons, even American flag pins.

“The American flag greets every guest and employee with its symbolism of our belief in this great country,” according to a statement from the Casa Monica Hotel. “However, our employee handbook clearly states, ‘No other buttons, badges, pins or insignias of any kind are permitted to be worn.’ “

Then maybe, in the interest of not being a bag of steaming crap, you should change the policy to allow your employees to wear an American flag pin.

Jackasses.  Guess I’ll be staying at the Holiday Inn from now on.

Can You Blame Them?

Personally, I wouldn’t tell that jackass if the sun was shining.

Israel refuses to tell US its Iran intentions

Israel has refused to reassure President Barack Obama that it would warn him in advance of any pre-emptive strike on Iran’s nuclear capabilities, raising fears that it may be planning a go-it-alone attack as early as next summer.

The US leader was rebuffed last month when he demanded private guarantees that no strike would go ahead without White House notification, suggesting Israel no longer plans to “seek Washington’s permission”, sources said. The disclosure, made by insiders briefed on a top-secret meeting between America’s most senior defence chief and Benjamin Netanyahu, Israel’s hawkish prime minister, comes amid concerns that Iran’s continuing progress towards nuclear weapons capability means the Jewish state has all but lost hope for a diplomatic solution.

Because, you know, he’s treated all of our other allies so well I’m certain B. Hussein Obama wouldn’t give Iran a heads up on what he was told, right?  It’s not like he’s sold out our other allies in the past or anything.

We are SOOOOO Lazy

November 13th, 2011 | No Comments | Posted in B Hussein, Libtards, We're from the government...

Dear Reader says so

Obama said it’s important to remember that the U.S. is still the largest receiver of foreign investment in the world and things like stability, openness and innovative free market culture are attractive. He also said there are a lot of things that make foreign investors see the U.S. as a great opportunity – like stability, openness, our innovative free market culture.

“But we’ve been a little bit lazy, I think, over the last couple of decades. We’ve kind of taken for granted — well, people will want to come here and we aren’t out there hungry, selling America and trying to attract new business into America, Obama said.

He then went on to say things his administration has done like setting up Select USA that organizes government agencies in an attempt to make it easier for foreign investors to set up a plant in the U.S.

Uh-huh.  It’s always us plebeian workers who are sitting on our ass or out playing golf while Dear Reader must carry us on his broad shoulders into the future because we are to lazy to walk there ourselves.

It couldn’t be that we aren’t getting investments from outside, or inside, our own country because we have had a Congress that has created a labyrinth of bureaucratic rules that no sane person could ever make sense of, or because we have regulatory groups like the EPA, NLRB, and OSHA that create their rules from ideology rather than rational thought processes like a normal human would – no, that can’t be it.

I will also bet that the “Unicorn and Rainbows” legislation that is Obamacare – whoops, the Dems don’t want to use that phrase anymore – the “United States (you won’t have any) healthcare plan – yeah, that didn’t kill any job at all, did it?  Bet it’s just made foreign investors say “Damn, let’s get a piece of that action.  I mean, look how well Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac have worked out!  What could go wrong with this?”

I will also bet someone’s money, not my own – not that dumb, that the payoffs to Democrat supporters and bundlers commonly known as the “Stimulus Package” didn’t hurt anything either, right?  I mean, it’s not like businesses and people aren’t going to have to pay off the debt that our government created by spending worse than a drunken sailor on shore leave.  Hell, I knew to stop drinking when I was out of cash – Congress isn’t that smart and Obama is on the bottom of THAT bell curve.

It’s not like Boeing had created 1,000 jobs in South Carolina before they were sued by the NLRB.  The reason?  They weren’t union jobs.

You know, things like that wouldn’t make a company reconsider expanding, or even investing, in the American marketplace.  When the rules of the game keep changing in the middle of the game, how many people will really want to play?
