Barack Obama: “We are mortgaging our children’s future”

Today, May 14, 2009,  in the State of New Mexico, the following comments were made:

“The current deficit spending is “unsustainable,” and warned of skyrocketing interest rates for consumers if the U.S. continues to finance government by borrowing from other countries.”

We can’t keep on just borrowing from China. We have to pay interest on that debt, and that means we are mortgaging our children’s future with more and more debt.” Barack Obama

Huh?  And who made the above statement?  A crazed “tea bagger,”  an equally crazed Sean Hannity or Rush Limbaugh?  Or maybe it was Newt Gingrich, Govenor Perry of Texas, or even Sarah Palin?

Nah.  It’s another “you just can’t make it up” moment.

Because after pushing through more spending in 100 days than in the history of the United States of America, President Barack Obama made the above comments at a town-hall meeting in Rio Rancho, New Mexico, outside Albuquerque (May 14, 2009).

So President Obama is saying, you know what, I admit the tea baggers are right. We are mortgaging our kids future.  Meanwhile he is pushing a massive healthcare plan through congress.  How dumb does he think the public is?  Answer:  Pretty damm dumb.

It’s unbelievable.  Just un. be. lievable.

He made the statements during the boy/girl, boy/girl question and answer session. A full transcript can be found Here.

Ripped jeans are back

There’s nothing new under the sun.

Ripped jeans and torn denim trend 2009

Torn denim 2009 Just when you thought they would never return… ripped jeans are back. Starting in 2008 with a horde of sexed-up editorial shoots and celebrity sightings, those torn denim shorts and shredded jeans are hitting the streets.  Ripped denim in 2009 is certainly sexy and revealing – possibly more than ever.

Imus Radiothon – May 7th and 8th

20th Annual Imus Radiothon-May 7th and 8th, 2009

For 20 years, Don Imus has been raising money through an annual Radiothon for the Imus Ranch for Kids with Cancer, the Tomorrow’s Children Fund, and the CJ Foundation for SIDS. Listen to 77 WABC on May 7th and 8th to hear from the many families whose lives have been touched by these important organizations. Stay tuned to 77 WABC and wabcradio.com for information about when pledge lines will open and when auction site is up! Please help us to make a difference in the lives that need it most.



Participate in this event and help benefit these fine organizations…


The CJ Foundation for SIDS, recognized as the leading SIDS organization in the country.
The organization is dedicated to supporting the special needs of the SIDS community through funding SIDS research, support services and public awareness programs. Since its inception, it has provided millions of dollars to SIDS researchers, organizations, support programs and public education and awareness campaigns throughout the nation, making possible remarkable strides in its fight to eliminate SIDS.

Twenty-six years ago, 16 parents whose children were diagnosed with cancer, turned to one another for support. Their dream, once modest, became the Tomorrows Children’s Fund, dedicated to easing the pain and speeding the healing of children fighting cancer or a serious blood disorder. Tomorrows Children’s Fund provides emotional, social and financial assistance as treatment is received and every year over 1,000 children and families turn here for support. The vision has become a reality today – offering a future of hope for many and being committed to ensuring a cure for each child who enter the doors of Tomorrows Children at Hackensack University Medical Center.

Imus Ranch is an authentic working cattle ranch near Ribera, New Mexico and was conceived and designed with the sole purpose of providing the experience of the great American cowboy to children suffering from cancer or serious blood disorders, and children who’ve lost brothers and sisters to Sudden Infant Death Syndrome. The objectives are to encourage in them a sense of achievement, responsibility and self-esteem, and to instill pride and restore their dignity as they become aware of just how much they are able to accomplish. Many have become convinced that because they are sick they are not normal. At Imus Ranch they quickly discover that they can do anything any other kid can do. Our experience has shown that when children suffering from these frightening illnesses are exposed to programs such as those offered by Imus Ranch it often actually contributes to their healing and recovery.
