The Top 10 Worst People of the Week: Adam Lambert, Oprah, Jon Gosselin, and CBS

This is something new I’m going to start doing with the help of my new writers.  The title is pretty self-explanatory, we’ll just go through and name the top 10 worst people of the week and a little bit about why.  This post will probably be posted on Saturdays, but seeing as this is Thanksgiving week and I’ll be busy Saturday, we’ll go ahead and do it tonight.

10. CBS- After CBS jumped at the opportunity to book Adam Lambert and be the shelter for the “kicked puppy”, they blurred out the Lamber/Male keyboarder kiss, while not blurring out the Madonna/Britney kiss that was shown in the same slide set.  I’m glad they blurred out the Lambert/Keyboarder kiss, but they should have been consistent and blurred both.  Watch out folks, hypocrisy earns you a spot on my list.

9. Google- Go back in time a week, google image search Michelle Obama.  What pops up?  A monkey.  True story.  Google lands on the list because they removed the photo and the website from their searches.  Don’t get me wrong, I find blatant racial attacks to be despicable and unwarranted in today’s society, but come on Google.  There are MILLIONS of offensive images on the internet, why try and play police with this one?  That image has been circulated to millions of American’s by now, and this all making much ado about nothing.  Everyone needs to quit being so dang sensitive.

8. Oprah Winfrey- Oprah started off great by announcing she was ending her tv show……… then she continued by saying it wouldn’t be over until 2011.  Geez Oprah, you got me all excited.

7. “President or Jihad” Billboard guy- Come on man, have some sense!  Sure I’d love for B.O. to show us the birth certificate, but really?  I’m not a member of the “AHH! HATE CRIME” group, I just think it’s ignorant.  I must say, it gave me a HUGE laugh when I first saw it though.  For those who missed this story, read it here.

6. Climatologists dismissing the e-mails- No one can take responsibility for their actions anymore.  3 of the climatologists who were a part of the global warming e-mail scandal last week came out today saying that it was nothing but a smear campaign.  When did “smear campaign” become the word of choice when trying to dodge a sticky situation?

5. Perez Hilton- The fact that I can’t stand him aside, Perez really aggravated me on the AMA’s.  They gave him 10 seconds of screen time and he used it to say “I caught up with Derek Hough….. in the bathroom”.  Perez has a chronic case of pedestalitus; he can say whatever he wants, but the second anyone else steps up, cue the tears and Vlog.

4. Jon Gosselin- He’s just a bully.  His latest episode includes being a bully to his twins for preferring their mom over him.  The two twins said they enjoyed being with their mom more, so Jon through them inside and wouldn’t let the poor girls sell lemonade.  I think he’s just bitter that his 15 minutes are officially ovahhhh.

3. WikiLeaks- I’ve never heard of this website until today, but apparently they’ve discovered thousands of 9/11 texts and have released them to the internet.  Why stir up memories with these messages, some of which were extremely personal and heartbreaking?

2. Keith Olbermann- Uhhhh…. He’s just annoying.

1. Adam Lambert- I’ve never seen anyone more desperate for publicity in my life.  I could tolerate him on Idol, but he took it too far at the AMA’s and continues to take it too far as he does interviews throughout the week.  Adam, you may not be “a babysitter”, but that doesn’t mean it’s fair game for you to force simulated oral sex on some back-up dancer in front of 15 million people.  You may think the the world is carrying out one big hate crime and discriminating against you, but I was just as appalled when Britney kissed Madonna.  Save it for pay-per-view, not a show with a rating of TV-14.

On a Scale of One to Ten: Top 10 Life Lessons You Can Learn from ACORN

Pre-P.S., “On a Scale of One to Ten” is the new name of the series that was previously known as simply “Top Tens”.

ACORN has taught us so much.. let us reflect on their vast knowledge.

ACORN has taught us so much.. let us reflect on their vast knowledge.

ACORN sure has been in the news a lot lately.  But even though they’ve been beaten down every day since last Thursday by a continuous flow of scandalous behavior, their acts aren’t all bad:  The various employees featured in the ACORN scandal tapes have taught us MANY life lessons.  Look below at the “Top 10 Life Lessons You Can Learn from ACORN!”

(In no particular order)

  1. You can find common ground with anything. Imagine this scenario:  You’re a prostitute.  You’re ashamed of your work and you think others may judge you.  THINK AGAIN.  Video 4 shows us that the lady who is paid with your tax dollars very well may have been a prostitute a few short years ago.  You never know unless you ask.
  2. Take pride in all that you do. Even if it’s prostitution.  Video 1 shows us that girls should never be embarrassed by what they do with themselves, as long as they are happy and doing well.  Forget that it’s illegal and trashy, to say the least.
  3. Performing Arts is a very brooooaaaaad career field. Video 1 strikes again.  They always say about taking a test, “When in doubt, pick C”.  Well, ACORN says when in doubt about which career cluster to choose for your “unique” line of work, choose “performing arts”.  There’s a reason why prostitution isn’t listed on the code sheet, imbecile.
  4. Become  a yardbird. When buying  a home, be sure to choose a home that has a huge back yard that is covered with lush grass because, according to Video 3, the best way to hide our valuables is to bury them.  This tip does not apply to hose living in New Orleans.
  5. Help your neighbors. Even they are prostitutes about to smuggle 13 girls in illegally.  Offer them your help in any way possible.  If you sell goods or services, go a step higher like the ladies in Video 1 and offer the prostitute a discount for whatever you’re offering to help her get her feet off the ground in her “new office”.
  6. Always be creative. You can’t call prostitution “prostitution” forever, you now.  Video 3 shows us that making a list of 3 different names for prostitution can be fun.  Homework: How many different ways can you call her a moron?
  7. Don’t stress about the fine details in life. Just lop off a zero or two from your income when filing taxes and your good to go!  Video 1 shows us there’s no need to pay taxes for $96,000 of income when you could very easily pay taxes for $9,600 of income.  It’s not cheating, it’s just smart money-management.
  8. Be proactive. If you think you’ve been wronged, do something about it!  Even if your in hot water for doing something far worse.  The Maryland office of ACORN reinforces this lesson by the lawsuit they lobbied against Fox News, Hannah Giles, and James O’Keefe, even though they currently don’t have a license to operate in Maryland.  ACORN’s offense of operating without a license is far more punishable by law, but because they got to the punch first they get a “Get Out of Jail Free” card.
  9. Only speak when spoken to.  Don’t offer up the illegal aspects of your life unless your asked, and in that situation it’s no big deal to speak in code.  Video 1 shows us that the shadier details of your life should be kept under wraps.  The government is everywhere, which is why your story should not be.  I wonder if there’s any way to hid your sketchy details in that box of money in the backyard?
  10. The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. I guess it would be the acorn in this case.  All four ACORN offices involved in the scandal so far have proven us one thing: a family truly can be formed in the office.  Just as blue eyes may be passed down from generation-to-generation, the tendency to make corrupt and unlawful decisions with clients is passed from ACORN employee to ACORN employee.  Maybe it’s something in the water?

What do you think of these life lessons?  If you can think of any further life lessons ACORN has taught us over the past week, leave them as a comment or send them in to theconservativejournal@gmail.com and they may be featured on the site!

Top 10 Dumbest Democrat Quotes Regarding Healthcare — Human Events

I just love Human Events.  Even though it feels my inbox with what seems like a billion messages every day, articles and lists like the one below make it totally worth it.  Below is a list of the top 10 dumbest quotes by democrats about healthcare.
  1. “I don’t want the folks who created the mess to do a lot of talking.  I want them just to get out of the way so we can clean up the mess.  I don’t mind cleaning up after them, but don’t do a lot of talking.” — President Obama at an August 6 at a rally in Virginia
  2. “They’re carrying swastikas and symbols like that to a town meeting on health care.” — House Speaker Nancy Pelosi in an August 5 interview
  3. “What good is reading the bill if it’s a thousand pages and you don’t have two days and two lawyers to find out what it means after you read the bill?” — Rep. John Conyers (Mich.) at the National Press Club, July 24
  4. “These disruptions are occurring because opponents are afraid not just of differing views — but of the facts themselves.  Drowning out opposing views is simply un-American.” — House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (Calif.) and Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (Md.), writing in USA Today, August 10
  5. “The last time I had to confront something like this was when I voted for the civil rights bill and my opponent voted against it.

  6. “What we’re seeing right now is close to Brown Shirt tactics.“ — Rep. Brian Baird, (Wash.) told a local newspaper
  7. “The last time I saw well-dressed people doing this, was when Al Gore asked me to go down to Florida when they were recounting the ballots, and I was confronted with the same type of people.” — Sen. Barbara Boxer (Calif.)
  8. “I hope people will take a jaundiced eye to what is clearly the Astroturf nature of so-called grassroots lobbying … The Astroturf nature of grassroots lobbying, which is largely the term for, you know, this is manufactured anger.” — White House spokesman Robert Gibbs
  9. “Republicans and their allied groups — desperate after losing two consecutive elections and every major policy fight on Capitol Hill — are inciting angry mobs of a small number of rabid right-wing extremists funded by K Street lobbyists to disrupt thoughtful discussions about the future of healthcare in America taking place in congressional districts across the country.” — Democratic National Committee communications director Brad Woodhouse
  10. “These are nothing more than destructive efforts to interrupt a debate that we should have, and are having.  They are doing this because they don’t have any better ideas … It’s really simple: They‘re taking their cues from talk-show hosts, Internet rumor-mongerers and insurance rackets.” — Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (Nev.)
  11. “Wait a minute. Wait a minute. Wait a minute. Wait a minute. Wait a minute. Wait a minute. Wait a minute. Wait a minute. Wait a minute. Wait a minute. Wait a minute. Wait a minute.” — Sen. Arlen Specter (Pa.), responding to a town hall participant
