A quick trip around Hannity's America...

Not So Stimulating

It's been almost three months since President Obama approved $787 billion stimulus package and just before signing the bill, you may remember that he made this pledge:


PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA: It's a plan that's been put together without earmarks or the usual pork barrel spending. With a recovery package of this size comes a responsibility to assure every taxpayer that we are being careful with the money they worked so hard to earn.


So, is he living up to his word? Not even close!

Take Rhode Island for example. A city there is planning to use $550,000 of your stimulus money to build an outdoor skate park.

Then there's Joe Biden's home state of Delaware, which is spending over $7 million to rebuild a boardwalk. But don't expect this project to have an immediate affect on the economy, construction won't even begin until the fall.

And the National Zoo in D.C. is getting its fair share of your money too. The feds are going to dish out over $11 million to them for unspecified improvements.

The list of irresponsible spending goes on and on, and as proof continues to surface that this was no more than a Democrat-sponsored spending bill, we are going to tell you about it right here.

U.N. Love Fest

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton took a moment Monday to impart her wisdom to the nation's youth at the D.C. Model United Nations Conference. Secretary Clinton used the opportunity to praise all of the U.N.'s good work:


SECRETARY OF STATE HILLARY CLINTON: The United Nations brings relief. They bring humanitarian aid.

LIBERAL TRANSLATION: They also steal humanitarian aid! See: Oil-for-Food.

CLINTON: They're looking at what can be done to help the hundreds of thousands of people fleeing the Swat region of Pakistan because of the Taliban and the Pakistani army's offensive.

LIBERAL TRANSLATION: We're thinking of sending ACORN out to register them to vote.

CLINTON: We worry about displaced people in Darfur, the Sudan.

LIBERAL TRANSLATION: We haven't done much besides worry yet, but maybe soon.

CLINTON: We just have so many concerns and the United States cares deeply about the entire world. But we could not be a presence working on all of these issues were it not for the United Nations.

LIBERAL TRANSLATION: In conclusion: The U.S. would be nothing without the United Nations. Thank you.


Last I remember, the U.N. was impeding U.S. action, not enabling it. But thanks for that revisionist history lesson, Hillary!

Teaching Terror

Those of you bemoaning the state of America's public high schools have even more reason to be upset. A Pueblo, Colorado, high school seeking to teach students about terrorism asked 110 freshmen students to plot an act of terrorism against the United States. Talk about an educational exercise!

Here's how an outraged parent described the assignment:


UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: She said you have two minutes to write down on a piece of paper what your act of terrorism would be if you were to come up with an act of terrorism.


The teacher who gave the assignment claims that she merely asked students to illustrate an act of terrorism committed against the United States. The school district's superintendent reassured everyone involved that if any student did, "illustrate an act of terrorism that they might commit, let's say against the school, we've expelled students for that."

And here's the best part: The school collected all of the assignments and destroyed them.

Obama-Mania Gone Wild

It appears that members of the liberal media aren't the only ones with an uncontrollable love affair with President Barack Obama. One Ohio woman is such a fan of the Anointed One that she actually broke into a home last weekend and attempted to steal a picture of the president.

According to the police report, 24-year-old Marla Anderson walked into the home, grabbed the Obama picture and then began a struggle with the owner before being arrested.

And get this: She even had a getaway driver! Thirty-one-year-old Tamika Cornwell was also taken into custody. Cincinnati.com reports, "She's accused of being an accomplice to the burglary, tampering with evidence and putting her child in danger."

Wow, Obama-mania is alive and well. I guess there's always a chance for a presidential pardon.
