Saturday Movie Matinee

Yesterday, after signing copies of his book at at RightOline, Andrew Breitbart went across the street to shake things up at the Nutroot convention. Hilarity ensued:

ZOMG, he sure got Andrew good on the not being credentialed thing. That guy must be the toast of Crazytown, today. And the hard-hitting questions about some fracas that neither Bretbart, nor any of his people were involved in was Pulitzer quality work. That alone will keep left-wing feverswamps busy for weeks spinning theories.

A couple of weeks ago I wondered, will lefties sign anything? It turns out, they will. They really, really will.

People sign “I am a moron” petition without reading headline:

Social critic Mark Dice asks people to sign a petition for some reason or another, and almot everyone does without even reading a word. Mark Dice is a media analyst, social critic, political activist, and author who, in an entertaining and educational way, gets people to question our celebrity obsessed culture, and the role the mainstream media plays in shaping our lives.

My 12 year old daughter has been raving about this: Cecilia,  “covered by Local Natives. Performed from the courtyard of ‘gorilla manor,’ our humble dwelling”:

That’s was pretty cool, even though they’re a bunch of dirty hippies.

Hey, did you know that GE paid no income taxes in 2010? ABC’s Jake Tapper asked why, here.

The top tax bracket for U.S. corporations stands at 35 percent, one of the highest rates in the world. So how is it possible that a giant of American business, General Electric, paid nothing in federal taxes last year, even as it made billions in profit? And should the CEO of GE, Jeffrey Immelt, be advising the president on business?

This story was covered by The Blaze, earlier this week: SEIU Officials Throw Out Member Questioning Union’s Ballot-Counting Practices: Mariam Nojiam, a state worker for the Department of Motor Vehicles and SEIU member, became suspicious when she happened on vote-counters who were apparently breaking the rules pertaining to an internal union election. Hot Air’s Ed Morrissey sets upthe clip (since Mariam caught everything on her cell phone):

The SEIU held an election by mail for an internal election — for which it apparently uses the same kind of secret ballots that they want to deny workers with Card Check. By SEIU’s own rules, those ballots are supposed to arrive via US Postal Service, with postmarks to note the date so that the counters can verify they arrived before the deadline. One SEIU observer noticed counters opening large envelopes of ballots with no postmarks at all on them — and when she tried to protest, the other SEIU officials in the room pushed her out the door.

  2. GE paid no income taxes for 2010? Gosh, whooda thunk, what with approximately 497 senators and representatives writing laws specifically beneficial to them (and other major corporations), and an administration that openly and blatantly rewards its followers/worshipers/donors?

    And get used to the unions running themselves the way SEIU does – there is nothing democratic about them, and if there was they would change it in a New York minute to reflect their utter contempt for the rank and file.
