The News in Zingers
By Argus Hamilton
http://www.JewishWorldReview.com | CNN joined ABC and NBC in admitting its George Zimmerman coverage was slanted to make him look racist. It looks like they tried to start a race riot. South Korea just filed an official protest with the networks on behalf of convenience store owners in Los Angeles.
President Obama signed a bipartisan bill Wednesday that bans Members of Congress from any insider stock trading. Their perch on Capitol Hill gives them an unfair edge in knowing what new companies will succeed. Nancy Pelosi bought Apple when it was Seed.
Goldman Sachs announced itíll no longer advertise in the Village Voice. Itís because the newspaper allows ads for prostitution. The investment bankers donít have anything against prostitution, itís just that they didnít like being right next to them in the classified ads.
CBS News did an extensive report last Sunday about a doctor whose research shows that sugar is a highly-dangerous substance that reduces life span. Whereís his sense of patriotism? Everybody knows by now that a healthy diet just makes Medicare insolvent.
President Obama slammed the GOP budget Tuesday saying the conservatives refuse to meet him in the middle on raising tax revenues. He blamed the lack of progress on Republican rigidity. Itís lasted more than four hours and itís time to seek medical attention.
Mitt Romney gave a speech on job creation in Pennsylvania Thursday. Heís proposed Reagan Economic Zones in areas that need help generating money. It allows economically disadvantaged areas like Detroit and south Chicago to sell missiles to the Iranians tax-free.
Mitt Romney tried connecting with voters in Wisconsin last week by discussing how his own family struggled. He likes to tell crowds the family story of how his grandfather returned to Utah from Mexico a hundred years ago with just his knapsack on his back. He forgets to mention that the knapsack contained two million dollars in silver certificates.
