TCJ Journal Honorary Plaque of Fail: Jon Gosselin, ‘Kate Plus 8’

Gosselins:  take your family drama out of the spotlight and work things out.  It’s not right for your kids to let this all play out on national television.  Thank you.

Goodbye Jon.

Goodbye Jon.

It was announced today that Kate will continue “Jon and Kate Plus 8” under a new title; “Kate Plus 8,” and talk about raising 8 kids as a single mother during the show.  Interestingly enough, Jon Gosselin also released apology today for the way he’s treated Kate and even asking to halt the divorce.  Coincidence?  I think not.

I’d love to live in happy land where everything is innocent and good, but unfortunately I do not.  No one is naive enough to think that Jon Gosselin just happened to ask for forgiveness the day it was announced that he doesn’t have a job anymore.  I mean come on Jon, at least wait a week or two.  For being worthless, Jon Gosselin earns the TCJ Honorary Plaque of Fail and a place in the Hall of Fame.  Congrats Jon!

Having said that, Kate’s not off the hook either.  As a single mother, she needs to focus on raising her 8 children, not raising the ratings of her TV show.  Don’t get me wrong, I’m definitely on her side (though she’s probably a bit of a control freak), I just can’t see how she’s going to have enough time to raise the kids and have a TV show about their lives, among other business ventures.

Additionally, the kids deserve some privacy.  They aren’t old enough to say, “I’m not doing this show,” so they’re forced to go along with if that’s what mommy wants.  I can’t imagine the difficulties of going through a regular divorce, and having that whole process play out in front of millions of viewers will make that about one million times worse for the kids.  So Kate, put your (well deserved) desire to get back at Jon aside and do what’s right for the kids.  I’m not going to give you a Fail Plaque yet, but you’re borderline.

TCJ Honorary Plaque of Fail: Miley “Pole Dancing Skank” Cyrus

I am not okay with this.

I am not okay with this.

Miiiley, you got esplaining to do!  America’s teen pop annoyance Miley Cyrus shows us she has no plans to “keep it G” for much longer by breaking out the stripper pole and dancing the night away.  I feel like the above picture should be blurred out in it’s entirety, except of course for the young man visible in the bottom left because I can tell he tried hard to get into the shot.

Skankarina Cyrus’s name is probably long overdue in the “Plaque of Fail” department, but I was waiting for just the right time.  And what better time than after she shows all of her pre-teen/tween fans how to be tasteful and classy young ladies?  I don’t have children, and I don’t watch or support Miley myself, but if I was the dad of a young girl that idolized Mrs. Cyrus, I’d be fuming right about now.  At not only Cyrus, but also at Disney Channel for refusing to take action against her skanky behavior even after SEVERAL offenses.  “Parents can rest assured that all content presented on the Disney Channel is age-appropriate for our audience – kids 6-14 – and consistent with what our brand values are” is all Disney had to say?  I mean of course she won’t be on a pole on her Disney Channel show!  But when you have millions of kids following your poster child’s every move, you have to at least speak against such behavior or you lose a little credibility in the childhood values department.

So, Mrs. Cyrus, keep your pole dancing ways at the club, in your room, or pretty much just anywhere that won’t allow it to wind up on TV where millions of little girls that look up to you can be negatively influenced by it.  Thank you.

What do you think about Mrs. Cyrus’s pole dancing ways?  Should Disney take action after Miley’s multpile offenses?  Leave your comments below or send an e-mail to theconservativejournal@gmail.com.  Don’t forget to bookmark The Conservative Journal and sign up for the RSS Feed and the daily e-mail newsletter.

TCJ Honorary Plaque of Fail: FreeCreditReport.com

Apparently I’m the last one to figure this out, but that’s the norm these days.

NEWSFLASH:

FreeCreditReport.com is not free.  In fact it costs $15 a month.  The company behind the service is now forced to alter there catchy commericals due to the recent crackdown on the credit card and credit industries.  Suppliers of these “free” services now have to inlcude “This is not the free credit report provided for by Federal law” in all tv and radio advertisements.  They must also now inform consumers that the only free credit report service is AnnualCreditReport.com.

I’ve never been in search of a credit report service, but it’s a real shame that people didn’t do further investigating when looking for a free report.  If they hadn’t been drawn in by FreeCreditReport.com’s catchy jingles, they could have easily found the free alternative.  So for catchy jingles, FreeCreditReport.com gets a thumbs up.  But for scamming consumers out of millions, two big thumbs down.

FreeCreditReport.com, The Conservative Journal honors you with the “Honorary Plaque of Fail” because you’re going to have a heck of time developing a well written jingle that includes “15 Dollar a Month credit report dot com” and “This is not the free credit report provided for by Federal law”.  Best of luck.

What do you think of this services trickery?  How long have you known about this?  Longer than I have, I assure you.  Leave your comments below or send an e-mail to theconservativejournal@gmail.com.  Don’t forget to bookmark The Conservative Journal and sign up for the RSS Feed and the daily e-mail newsletter.

TCJ Honorary Plaque of Fail: Joe”I Have A Top Secret Bunker In My Basement!” Biden

Joe Biden swapping secrets with his waitor at dinner last week.

Joe Biden swapping secrets with his waitor at dinner last week.

Man, that Joe Biden is a card.  He just can’t seem to get it right, can he?  Joe’s been known for his gaffes over the years; in fact, there are several lists of them circulating around the interweb.  And while I usually think they are hilarious and innocent, this one’s got me a little worried about ole Joel.

Apparently, Joe told a group of friends he was having dinner with about the bunker, which held former Vice President Dick Cheney during and after 9/11.  The bunker is supposed to be top secret to ensure the safety of the VP should anything happen to the president.  Well of course, Joe couldn’t handle a little secret and now the world knows where he’ll be if the U.S. should face a 9/11-like attack in the future.  If his blunder results in the relocation of the secret hideout, it’ll be a real shame considering that in 2002 the bunker was apparently fixed up with the latest epuipment to sustain the VP and his staff after officials saw that it was not fully prepared to handle a crisis situation like 9/11.  Of course, Barack was not at all happy about this incident.  I don’t agree with anything he says, but at least he’s got enough sense not to leak top secret information.

Surely Joe can learn to keep his mouth shut before he leaks something even MORE secret than TOP secret.  But look on the bright side: Unless the people running top secret government stuff have learned their lessons, we can sit tight until Joe is briefed on the happenings at Area 51!  We’re surely in for a treat when he spills that.  And until then, I am honored to present Vice President Joe Biden with The Conservative Journal Honorary Plaque of Fail.

What do you think of Joe’s spilling the beans?  Leave your comments below or send an e-mail to theconservativejournal@gmail.com.  Don’t forget to bookmark The Conservative Journal and sign up for the RSS Feed and the daily e-mail newsletter.

TCJ Honorary Plaque of Fail: Barack Obama and Gang

Dear Barack and Posse,

The city of New York and the entire United States ask that you please refrain from joy riding around in Air Force One at only hundreds of feet of above the ground.  We realize that we didn’t have any pictures of you in flying past The Statue of Liberty or Trump Towers, but please.  At least tie a banner to the back of the plan that says, “GOOD MORNING NEW YORK!  IT’S B.O. UP IN THIS PLANE”, or something to that effect.  We’ve even included a reference for you for the next time you want to take scenic shots of Manhattan:

Barack, we expect to see this next time.  Thank you.

Barack, we expect to see this next time. Thank you.

Anything less than that will be a disappointment.

Thanks,

The United States, excluding Frank-Pelosi-Reid.

For Barack and crew’s display of ignorance we award them with the “Honorary Plaque of Fail”, which even includes a place in the Hall of Fame!  This award is extra ironic because Barack was the first recipient of the “TCJ Seal of Approval” back when he took out those pirates in an efficient manner.  Well, in accordance to the law of gravity, what comes up must come down, and Barack’s status as upstanding member of society did just (Intentional exaggeration.  Don’t e-mail me about it.) that when he approved the flight of the Boeing 747 that flew low through the skies of Manhattan just so the White House Gift Shop could update its Statue of Liberty post card section.  The trip not only horrified many New Yorkers, but it cost (and wasted) millions of tax payer dollars.  And while “millions” of dollars is nothing in the grand scheme of the government budget, it’s the principal of the matter.  And for that, Barack and the gang, we tip our DUNCE caps to you.

What do you think of the flight through Manhattan?  Leave your comments below or send an e-mail to theconservativejournal@gmail.com!
