Katie Couric praises San Francisco push to ban happy meal toys.

Typical liberalism on display by praising big government to do a job that parents should be doing which is say no to their kids in eating junk food. Why should the government come in to ban toys because parents refuse to do their jobs?

PM John Howard attacks multiculturalism

The west has long been on a path where saying sorry for being the west is the easy way out.
Former Australian Prime Minister John Howard has attacked "multiculturalism" in English-speaking nations, while urging countries to hold on firmly to their cultural identities in the battle against terrorism.

Mr Howard said on Tuesday on a visit to Washington that the "Anglosphere" needed to take greater pride in its values and achievements.

"I think one of the errors that some sections of the English-speaking world have made in the last few decades has been to confuse multiracialism and multiculturalism," Mr Howard said at the Heritage Foundation, a conservative think-tank.

He pointed in particular to Britain, whose Muslim community came under the spotlight after the 2005 bombings on the London transport system.

He declared that he was "a passionate believer in multiracialism", in which migrants from different cultures of the world adopt the culture of their new country.

"I believe that societies are enriched if they draw ... from all parts of the world on a non-discriminatory basis," he said.

"But when a nation draws people from other parts of the world, it draws them because of the magnetism of its own culture and its own way of life.

"People want to live in the United States not because of some futuristic ideal of multiculturalism but because of what they regard as the American way of life and American values," he said.

WH spokesman points out how much Obama likes Olbermann and Maddow.

Just after Obama went after Fox News for not being his personal boot licker, a WH spokesman points out who is to them team players.
The vice president told Democrats to “stop whining.” The president told them to “buck up.” And neither seemed to leave any doubt in separate interviews this week that press secretary Robert Gibbs’s exasperation over the summer with the “professional left” was the official view of the White House.

But who, exactly, makes up this “professional left” that is so bothering President Barack Obama and his advisers? On Tuesday, Gibbs’s deputy, Bill Burton, made it clear that the occasionally critical cable personalities originally associated with this comment have the administration’s blessing.

"If you're on the left, if you're somebody like Keith Olbermann or Rachel Maddow or one of the folks who helps to keep our government honest and pushes and prods to make sure that folks are true to progressive values, then [the president] thinks that those folks provide an invaluable service,” Burton told reporters.

Mexico: Mayor and his aide stoned to death.

Again, why isn't this admin treating the border as an active warzone I will never understand.
A small-town mayor and an aide were found stoned to death Monday in a drug-plagued western state, the fifth city leader to be slain in Mexico since mid-August.

Michoacan state Attorney General Jesus Montejano said the bodies of Tancitaro Mayor Gustavo Sanchez and city adviser Rafael Equihua were discovered in a pickup truck abandoned on a dirt road near the city of Uruapan.

Montejano's spokesman, Jonathan Arredondo, said initially that the victims were hacked to death with a machete, but the attorney general said they were killed with stones.

Arredondo said police were trying to determine a possible motive.

Tancitaro, a town of 26,000 people, is in a region where soldiers have destroyed more than 20 meth labs in the last year and several police officers have been killed by suspected drug gang members.

NAACP's Ben Jealous with Jew, Muslim and overall race baiting at the pulpit.

From the Blaze. The Kristallnacht? Really? Just a continuing example of why the NAACP is a joke.
