Her driver was a female Harley-Davidson employee from Maryland.
These are my kinda biker chicks!

“Photographer Michele Coleman contrasted a rugged Appalachian hillside with the refined skills of a cello-playing teenager, offering a fresh perspective of a region accustomed to being portrayed through gritty images of squalor.
Her photo took top prize in a contest sponsored by the University of Kentucky's Appalachian Center. It shows a high school senior from Marietta, Ohio, with her arms draped around the classical music instrument while perched on the hillside.
‘You could see a talented young individual,’ said Coleman, a professional photographer from Parkersburg, W.Va.
The West Virginia native said she tires of seeing old photos reinforcing stereotypes of Appalachia, and hopes she did her part to show there's a much different side to the 205,000-square-mile region.”
“The President does not have power under the Constitution to unilaterally [without approval from Congress] authorize a military attack in a situation that does not involve stopping an actual or imminent threat to the nation.”Today, speaking about Barack Hussein Obama, ABC reports:
“Experts say this is the first time an American president has defied the War Powers Resolution's deadline for participation in combat operations without any concurrent steps by Congress to fund or otherwise authorize the role.”
“Nevada got a partial waiver from the health care law — a significant development that Democrats are dismissing as par for the course and Republicans are claiming as a political victory.
The Health and Human Services Department announced late Friday that Nevada had secured a statewide waiver from certain implementation requirements of the Obama administration’s health care law, because forcing them through, the department found, ‘may lead to the destabilization of the individual market.’”
“I find nothing in the language or history of the Constitution to support the Court's judgment. The Court simply fashions and announces a new constitutional right for pregnant mothers [410 U.S. 222] and, with scarcely any reason or authority for its action, invests that right with sufficient substance to override most existing state abortion statutes. The upshot is that the people and the legislatures of the 50 States are constitutionally dissentitled to weigh the relative importance of the continued existence and development of the fetus, on the one hand, against a spectrum of possible impacts on the mother, on the other hand.”Roe v. Wade has NOTHING to do with abortion “rights” and EVERYTHING to do with STATES rights. If Roe v. Wade were overturned, that would MERELY return to the states the Constitutionally guaranteed RIGHT for their duly ELECTED legislators to decide this issue state by state.

“The White House Press Office has refused to give the Boston Herald full access to President Obama’s Boston fund-raiser today, in e-mails objecting to the newspaper’s front page placement of a Mitt Romney op-ed, saying pool reporters are chosen based on whether they cover the news ‘fairly.’”
“Of the 204 new Obamacare waivers President Barack Obama’s administration approved in April, 38 are for fancy eateries, hip nightclubs and decadent hotels in House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s Northern California district.”
“The debate about global warming has reached ridiculous proportions and is full of micro-thin half-truths and misunderstandings. I am a scientist who was on the carbon gravy train, understands the evidence, was once an alarmist, but am now a skeptic.”
“Directional drilling and hydraulic-fracturing technologies are dramatically increasing natural-gas extraction. In aquifers overlying the Marcellus and Utica shale formations of northeastern Pennsylvania and upstate New York, we document systematic evidence for methane contamination of drinking water associated with shale-gas extraction.”
“With Wisconsin Democratic Sen. Herb Kohl announcing his plans to retire last week, there has been some speculation that Republican House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan might make a run for the soon-to-be vacated Senate seat.”
“Deep into the recent recession, Boeing decided to invest more than $1 billion in a new factory in South Carolina…
It would create new American jobs at a time when most employers are hunkered down…
Eighteen months later, a North Charleston swamp has been transformed into a state-of-the-art, green-energy powered, 1.2 million square-foot airplane assembly plant. One thousand new workers are hired and being trained to start building planes in July…
Yet the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) believes it was a mistake and that our actions were unlawful.”
“Boeing has fired back against a decision by the National Labor Relations Board to file a complaint against it opening a new non-union facility in the right-to-work state of South Carolina.
‘This claim is legally frivolous and represents a radical departure from both NLRB and Supreme Court precedent,’ Michael Luttig, Boeing's general counsel, said in a statement.”
“The president is expected any day now to sign an executive order that routs 70 years of efforts to get politics out of official federal business.
Under the order, all companies (and their officers) would be required to list their political donations as a condition to bidding for government contracts. Companies can bid and lose out for the sin of donating to Republicans.”
“The number of unemployed persons, at 13.7 million, changed little in April. The unemployment rate edged up from 8.8 to 9.0 percent over the month”
“There has rarely been a starker juxtaposition of evil and innocence than the moment President George W. Bush received the news about 9/11 while reading The Pet Goat with second-graders in Sarasota, Fla…
One thing the students would like to tell Bush's critics — like liberal filmmaker Michael Moore, whose 2004 documentary Fahrenheit 911 disparaged Bush for lingering almost 10 minutes with the students after getting word that two planes had crashed into the World Trade Center — is that they think the President did the right thing. ‘I think he was trying to keep everybody calm, starting with us,’ says Guerrero. Dubrocq agrees: ‘I think he was trying to protect us.’ Booker Principal Gwendolyn Tose-Rigell, who died in 2007, later insisted, ‘I don't think anyone could have handled it better. What would it have served if [Bush] had jumped out of his chair and ran out of the room?’”
“The U.S. Agriculture Department on Monday introduced an online ‘Food Desert Locator,’ showing where in the United States residents have limited access to affordable and nutritious foods.
The Obama administration defines a food desert as a low-income census tract where either a substantial number or percentage of residents lacks easy access to a supermarket or large grocery store. (The Census Bureau defines a census tract as a small, relatively permanent statistical subdivision of a county.)
‘This new Food Desert Locator will help policy makers, community planners, researchers, and other professionals identify communities where public-private intervention can help make fresh, healthy, and affordable food more readily available to residents,’ Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack said in a news release…
Tracts qualify as ‘low access’ if at least 500 persons or 33 percent of the population live more than a mile from a supermarket or large grocery store.”
“Houses that exceed their allotted energy budget due to non-essential luxuries like heated driveways and hot tubs are required to mitigate their consumption by either installing solar systems on-site or paying a fee to the Renewable Energy Mitigation Program (REMP), which funds renewable energy projects in the valley.”
“the WORST of all economic phenomena”The Dims have a very long and sordid history with Crony Capitalism. The incestuous relationship between General Electric and the Obama administration is -- arguably -- the most visible and most egregious current example. But, it hardly stops there. Wall Street has been in bed with both Republicans and Democrats -- but, mostly with Democrats. Through the “club” wielded by these Crony Capitalists, Wall Street has privatized their rewards and socialized their risks (at our collective expense and with millions in rewards to the utterly corrupt Dim politicians).
