West doesn't like President Obama. "Get the hell out of the United States of America" West screamed at a Lincoln Day dinner in West Palm Beach, Florida, over the weekend.The complete quote is...

"We need to let President Obama, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, (audience boos) and my dear friend the chairman of the Democrat National Committee, we need to let them know that Florida ain't on the table. Take your message of equality of achievement, take your message of economic dependency, take your message of enslaving the entrepreneurial will and spirit of the American people somewhere else. You can take it to Europe, you can take it to the bottom of the sea, you can take it to the North Pole, but get the hell out of the United States of America."

Yeah -- take that!  We don' wan' no stinkin' equality around here, Mr. President! We're REPUBLICANS! And we animals are more equal than you animals. Even the circus performers who winter in the Sunshine State are cringing at the crew of clowns headed their way. 

And how can the US maintain strategic military activities in the Mideast while "officially" withdrawing the troops?  Why, with floating military bases! We're sending them into the Persian Gulf to secure our (oil) interests, don't you know. Iran ain't too happy about that, needless to say.

Well, how about revisiting the Supreme Court's Citizen's United ruling, and why Fat Tony Scalia is scrambling to justify that decision, which allows corporations to manipulate our entire electoral process. According to CBS, Scalia ...

"...has a simple solution for people who don't like all the political advertisements unleashed by the court's decision two years ago that ended limits on corporate contributions in political campaigns -- change the channel or turn off the TV.

"Scalia was asked about the decision during a presentation before the South Carolina Bar on Saturday, exactly two years after the court handed down the 5-4 decision in the case that led to the rise of Super PACs. They are outside groups affiliated with candidates that can take in unlimited contributions as long as they don't directly coordinate with the candidate.

"'I don't care who is doing the speech -- the more the merrier,' Scalia said. 'People are not stupid. If they don't like it, they'll shut it off.'"

Scared yet? Yeah -- me too.

Kathy never expected a career in radio as a talk show producer. Born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia, Kathy was completing her nursing degree when in 2001 - in an emergency - she was asked to fill in as the producer of Mike's program. Within a few (more...)
