This public service announcement has been brought to you by a h/t from golfmom3:
“With the Just Move! stamp issuance the U.S. Postal Service hoped to raise awareness about the importance of physical activity in achieving a healthy lifestyle. However, according to Linns Stamp News, the USPS will be destroying the entire press run after receiving concerns from the President’s Council on Fitness, Sports & Nutrition over alleged “unsafe” acts depicted on three of the stamps.
I don’t think these stamps are really dangerous to your health. I’m passing this information on for the benefit of the philatelists out there. Get your head out of the gutter - they’re stamp collectors. I thought you’d want to know, because these stamps are about to become collector’s items, and if you can get your hands on some of them, they’ll be a better investment than anything else you have in your IRA.
The recalled stamps depict children performing dangerous activities such as:
“a cannonball dive, skateboarding without kneepads and a headstand without a helmet…also a batter without a batting helmet, a girl balancing on a slippery rock, and a soccer player without kneepads or shin pads.”
Not only that, butt as you can clearly see the stamps are also racist. The only black child depicted is shooting hoops! Do you see what happens when the government shuts down and people are left to their own devices, without adequate oversight? You get graphic artists designing racist cartoon stamps depicting kids performing dangerous, non-government sanctioned athletic activities.
While we don’t tolerate anything that smacks of racism around here, dangerous sports activities, I’m sorry to say, are no stranger to the Big White. Lady M herself has participated in some non-government approved activities in the past:
And it appears that MO isn’t the only one performing dangerous tricks around the White House these days. BO held an emergency presser yesterday (always a bad idea, as there’s a danger that TOTUS won’t be adequately loaded, and he’ll make Big Guy sound dumb).And calling what was essentially a bully pulpit speech a “press conference” always leaves the door open for hostile fire.
However, I think it worked out pretty well: in his 45 minute preamble to the presser, Barry cited “Republicans” more times than he used the words “I” or “my” – making it a truly historical speech.
If you're in negotiations around buying somebody's house, you don't get to say, well, let's talk about the price I'm going to pay, and if you don't give the price then I'm going to burn down your house. That's not how negotiations work. That's not how it happens in business.[ed. In business, people don’t usually refuse to talk to the people they’re negotiating with either.] That's not how it happens in private life.
So let me explain this [ed. “to you morons”]. If Congress refuses to raise what's called the debt ceiling, America would not be able to meet all of our financial obligations for the first time in 225 years.
And because it's called raising the debt ceiling, I think a lot of Americans think it's raising our debt.[ed.What a bunch of maroons!] It is not raising our debt. This does not add a dime to our debt [ed. until, maybe, 5 minutes after it’s raised].
It is true he took about a dozen non-questions from print reporters – none of whom, surprisingly, asked anything about Obamacare or the Shutdown Theatre. He didn’t take any questions from TV reporters at ABC, NBC, Ms.NBC, CBS, CNN, or the hateful Fox News; all of whom have been giving Jay-Jay grief lately.
Sensing some frustration in the room, Obama remarked at one point that the choice of which reporters to call on was not his, but his press secretary, Jay Carney. “I’m just going through my list, guys,” he said. “Talk to Jay.”
Ah yes, it’s good to be king. There are always plenty of little people around to blame your snits on.
Or maybe Jay-Jay really is in charge around here?
Anyway. Big Guy finally resorted to the always reliable Clinton strategy, lie through your teeth:
Our housing market is healing; we've cut the deficit in half. Since I took office, the deficit is coming down faster than any time in the last 50 years.
In fact, they might even toast you for it.
