Today’s Headline News!

Let’s talk about what’s important today…what’s new in the news….

Have you heard about the woman in Michigan who won a $1,000,000 Lottery but still was collecting food stamps? After taxes she only got $500,000 and she has 2 houses but no job  and since she wasn’t cut off, she saw no harm in still collecting. Do you?

Wages for young workers have dropped for the last ten years and dropped drastically since 2007 to 2011.  The entry-level hourly wage of a young male high school graduate in 2011 was 25.3% less than that for the equivalent worker in 1979, a drop of roughly $4 per hour in 2011 dollars.  Amazing how bad the economy really is!

The US offered to give Israel advanced weaponry — including bunker-busting bombs and refueling planes — in exchange for Israel’s agreement not to attack Iranian nuclear sites, Israeli newspaper Maariv reported Thursday.

President Obama reportedly made the offer during Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s Washington visit this week. You can’t tell it’s a re-election year, can you?

Sarah Palin’s video entitled “Game Change We Can Believe In” came out today trying to head off the movie HBO is releasing on 3/10/12 that she alleges is fiction. Palin alleges the movie is based on “false narrative” about her and how she handled being the the GOP vice presidential nominee.  Palin’s political action committee is asking for a disclaimer on the film that it is fiction. HBO said in a recent statement ” it is a balanced portrayal of the McCain/Palin campaign.”

“HBO has a long track record of producing fact-based dramas, and our mantra has always been ‘get the story right.’ We stand by our movie and we hope that people will withhold any judgment until they have viewed the film,” the HBO statement said. I personally do NOT care enough about the players to see it, do YOU?

That’s it for now……..

    “Game Change” has been getting a lot of good reviews and I might admit a crush on Julianne Moore. I think the Palin-arc has been fascinating (in sort of a train-wreck way) and a fascinating mirror through which to look at ourselves as a nation.

      I heard that Julianne Moore looks just like Palin…I just hate these sensationalized stories…whether it’s true or not…though I’m sure they have taken some liberties…and it is a train wreck….I don’t know why we care what she says I find her quite annoying….I don’t HATE her, though!
