WTF - Are  you kdding me?

Illinois may give driver's licenses to illegal immigrants

Quote
Illinois may soon become the most populous U.S. state to grant a form of driver's licenses to illegal immigrants, after the nation's growing Hispanic population boosted the power of Democrats in national and state elections on November 6.

A bipartisan group of Illinois politicians announced on Tuesday they would propose such a law when the legislature convenes on November 27.

Washington state and New Mexico are the only states that currently allow illegal immigrants to get licenses. Utah allows driving permits. As the fifth most populous state, Illinois would be the biggest state to adopt such a law.

A California law that allows immigrants with federal work permits to receive driver's licenses will take effect January 1, 2013.
Supporters said the law would be good for public safety, allowing Illinois immigrant motorists to get tested on their driving skills and buy insurance.

"When you have a quarter of a million undocumented drivers on the road, it's definitely a safety concern," said Ron Holmes, spokesman for Illinois Senate President John Cullerton, who is backing the measure along with fellow Democrats Illinois Governor Pat Quinn and Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel.

I'm more liberal than conservative, but this just sounds ridiculous. This should be addressed more like I've been saying. America needs to get tougher. We are such wimps and do nothing or worse... aid illegal immigrants. WTF is wrong with politicians?

Stephen Colbert for Senate?

Even though Colbert was making light of this on Thursday night on The Colbert Report, I think there is a very real possibility this actually comes to fruition.

Enraged Chris Christie blasts Boehner, House GOP over Sandy aid

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m_82LoRqokc

Quote
WASHINGTON – Enraged over Congress' failure to approve disaster relief for victims of Superstorm Sandy, Gov. Chris Christie of New Jersey unloaded Wednesday on House Speaker John A. Boehner and Republican lawmakers in Washington for putting "palace intrigue" ahead of their official responsibilities.

Washington politicians "will say whatever they have to say to get through the day," Christie said, adding that, as a governor, he had "actual responsibilities" -- "unlike people in Congress."

Christie, a potential 2016 GOP presidential contender, reserved his most blistering words for the Republican House speaker.  He described Boehner, variously, as selfish, duplicitous and gutless for reversing course at the last minute on Tuesday night and refusing to allow a vote on a $60-billion aid package before the current Congress adjourned.

Christie said that as a result of "the speaker’s irresponsible action," there will be further delay in federal disaster aid to New Jersey, New York, Connecticut and other areas hit by the October storm. He pointed out that it had been 66 days since the storm hit and that areas struck by other hurricanes in recent years had received relief packages in far less time.

However, as outrage continued to pour in from elected officials in the affected area, Boehner agreed to hold a vote Friday to direct needed resources to the National Flood Insurance Program. And on Jan. 15, the first full legislative day of the 113th Congress, the House will consider the remaining supplemental request for the victims of Hurricane Sandy.

But that came after Christie dished out his cold outrage on members of his own party.

"Shame on you. Shame on Congress," Christie said at a news conference in Trenton, the state capital. "It's absolutely disgraceful, and I have to tell you, this used to be something that was not political. Disaster relief was something you didn't play games with." But "in this current atmosphere, [it's] a potential piece of bait for the political game.  It is why the American people hate Congress."

At another point, he said of Republicans in Congress: "We've got people down there who use the citizens of this country like pawns on a chessboard."

"My party was responsible for this," Christie said, charging "one set of Republicans was trying to prove something to another set," and that Boehner was trying to "prove something. I hope he accomplished it."

Christie, whose disaster-relief-themed efforts to reach across partisan lines to President Obama in the days leading up to the election angered many Republicans, said he did not think that was a factor in Boehner's decision.

But the governor, who delivered the keynote address at last summer's Republican National Convention and has helped raise money in recent years for fellow members of the party, did not rule out retaliating against his enemies in Washington.

"We'll see. Primaries are an ugly thing," he said.

“Demand Celebrities Go F--- Themselves” splices scenes of stars performing violent acts in TV shows and movies with footage of them calling for gun law reform.

Quote
A new video is turning Hollywood’s “Demand a Plan” gun law PSA on its head. The original video was released in the wake of the Dec. 14 mass shooting in Newtown, Conn., and featured dozens of celebrities demanding elected officials do something to fight gun violence.

But “Demand a Plan – Demand Celebrities Go F--- Themselves” inter-cuts footage of these same stars brandishing guns in their film and TV roles with them calling for curbs in violence in real life.

“These self-serving whores of the 1 percent love guns and violence as long as they can line their pockets,” writes the video's creator on YouTube. “Hey these hypocritical assholes ‘probably’ voted for and support Obama...how many kids has he killed with his toy drones and foreign policy? When you elect leaders that commit mass murder, don't be surprised when the citizens follow suit.”

The video had been viewed more than 575,000 times since being uploaded Christmas Day.

Stars depicted performing violent acts include Jamie Foxx, Jeremy Renner, Cameron Diaz, Will Ferrell and Chris Rock. A hunting episode of NBC’s Parks and Recreation provided plenty of fodder for footage of Amy Poehler, Aziz Ansari and Rashida Jones with hunting rifles.

The original “Demand a Plan” video has been viewed more than 6 million times.

Watch the “Demand Celebrities” video below but be warned it contains scenes of film and TV violence.

It's a little known fact that when an actor receives their SAG cards that they have to sign a Hypocracy Waiver in exchange for a lifetime membership.

Not is only a slow day in news and politics, but a sly one as well.

First, WTF as far as newsworthy? What am I missing here.
Acting CIA director shoots down 'Zero Dark Thirty' accuracy

Must be a slow day, because who gives a f uck? When does the CIA director have time to give any thought to a Hollywood movie and it's Impact? Uh, I think you have more important s hit to do.

Quote
Acting CIA Director Michael Morell is getting in on the "Zero Dark Thirty" controversy.  In the wake of criticism the film has faced in regards to the veracity of its content, Morell sent a letter to CIA personnel about the thriller-flick's accuracy, and then made it public.

"What I want you to know is that 'Zero Dark Thirty' is a dramatization, not a realistic portrayal of the facts," Morell said in the letter posted on the CIA's website Friday. "CIA interacted with the filmmakers through our Office of Public Affairs but, as is true with any entertainment project with which we interact, we do not control the final product."

More...

and now something a little more important

Boehner re-elected as Speaker of the House

WTF... seriously. Holy s hit Batman...

Quote
Ohio Rep. John Boehner, R, won a second term as speaker of the House on Thursday over the dissent of a handful of House conservatives.

Following a bruising first two years as speaker and leader of House Republicans, 10 conservative lawmakers cast votes for someone other than Boehner during a roll call vote in the first hours of the new Congress. Several other conservative Republicans abstained from voting. Boehner received 220 votes of a total of 426 cast.

More...

and isn't this just wonderful to know. Our congressmen continue their crap. NASCAR? Asparagus? Movies?

FOCUS PEOPLE... FOCUS!!!!

Fiscal cliff deal includes at least $67.9 billion for special interests

Did you read that... 67.9 BILLION

Quote
Taxpayers aren't the only ones who won't be flying off the fiscal cliff — this year, at least. Add race cars, movies and asparagus to the list.

As part of their last-second deal to slam the brakes on an economy racing toward the so-called fiscal cliff, lawmakers gave the green light this week to extending dozens of business and industry tax breaks, like a cost-recovery program that will save the owners of "motorsports entertainment complexes" (that is, racetracks) about $70 million over the next two years.
