Video of the Day: A Tale Two Bows

I saw this over at Conservative Underground, and I thought it was just too good to pass up.  Here is a video that compares B.O.s bow to the Queen compared with his bow to Saudi Arabian King Abdullah.  Which one looks more sincere to you?

What do you think?  Does anyone have a sneaking suspicion that he would have rather just high-fived the Queen?  Leave your comments below or send us an e-mail at theconservativejournal@gmail.com!

Leonardo Dicaprio at KCA: “Our mother is hurting!”

The Green activists love to talk about their green endeavours; however, occasionally they take it a little far.  First, we had the speech Al Gore made where he basically told young teenage children that their parents were out of touch and didn’t understand the modern world.  Now, it’s Leonardo DiCaprio telling the millions of young children at the Kids Choice Awards that “our mother is hurting”.

I haven’t seen much reaction to this on blogosphere yet, most likely because most bloggers likely weren’t watching the awards show.  However, I happened to catch a few minutes of the telecast, and what I saw was ALL ABOUT some green activism.  Leonardo was there to accept his award for “The Big Green Help” (which never fails to remind me of Sara Silverman’s “The Great Schlep”), which is given to the person that exhibits excellence in advancing green initiatives.  During his speech, he said this:

Right now, our mother, Mother Earth, is hurting.  And she needs a generation of thoughtful, caring, and active kids like all of you to protect her future.  You can help us win the battle to clean up our air, our water, our land, to protect our forests, our oceans and our wildlife.

There was much more to the acceptance speech, which drug on for at least an hour and was the longest acceptance speech I’ve ever heard.  After hearing that, several things came to mind.  First of all, I can’t imagine why this is on a show geared to young tweens.  At this point in their lives, the environment is not a priority.  Secondly, I don’t understand why the people at Nick feel the need to shove something as controversial as Global Warming down our throats at an awards show for kids.  At a time when most are beginning to doubt the mere existence of Global Warming, Nick is in full force pushing a green way of life.  Don’t get me wrong, I don’t have anything against a green lifestyle; I do, however, have something against a children’s channel taking advantage of children by pitching farce like Global Warming.  And I don’t necessarily have a problem with children being educated in taking care of the environment, but using lines like “our mother is hurting”?

What do you think of this?  How does this compare to Al Gore’s speech earlier in the year?  Leave your comments below or send us an e-mail at theconservativejournal@gmail.com!

Posts from the Week

These posts were posted during the last week.  If you missed them the first time, be sure and check them out by clicking the article below.

Poll of the Day Results

March 21st- Who Do You Think Changed the Wikipedia Page?

  • We presented the evidence, and you voted to find the culprit.  In the end, the person you all thought is the conspirator of WikiGate was clear.  And that person is………. Joy Behar!  Joy was my pick also, as the evidence against her was compelling.  Here are the details:  Joy Behar had 35% of the vote, Michael Moore had 19% of the vote, Nancy Pelosi had 17% of the vote, Barney Frank had 15% of the vote, and Al Gore had 14% of the vote.

March 22nd- What Do You Think of the 2012 Poll Results?

  • In a vote that remained close all week, readers of The Conservative Journal sided with the poll that predicted Barack Obama would beat Sarah Palin if they faced off in 2012.  42% of our readers think that the results were accurate, while 39% think Sarah Palin could take Barack down.  The remaining 19% don’t know.

March 23rd- What Do You Think of Charlie Rangel?

  • Looks like I’m in good company around here as a Charlie Rangel hater, as 81% of readers of the site voted that Charlie Rangel has got to go.  A mere 5% voted everyone should just back off, and the remaining 14% don’t care enough to form an opinion.

March 24th- What Do You Think of Meghan McCain’s Interview?

  • Looks like there isn’t much Meghan love here at The Conservative Journal, as 38% of our readers don’t care enough about her to read the recap of her Larry King interview, or to watch it back online.  34% of our readers thought it was horrible and boring, while the remaining 28% loved the interivew.

March 25th- Who Was Your Favorite on American Idol?

  • For our inaugural “No Politics Tuesday” day, we asked who our readers thought was the best on American Idol.  Our readers chose Adam Lambert as the best with 20% of the vote.  The remaining contestants stacked up like this: Allison Iraheta received 16%, Danny Gokey received 12%, Lil Rounds received 9%, Kris Allen received 8%, Anoop Desai received 7%, Megan Joy received 5%, Matt Giraud received 4%, Scott MacIntyre recieved 3%, and Michael Sarver recieved 1%.  The remaining 14% of readers don’t watch.  It’s also worth noting that our readers not only predicted the bottom 3 accurately, but predicted who was going home as well.

March 26th- Did Watch Obama’s Press Conference?

  • 53% of Conservative Journal readers watched the press conference, but fell asleep at some point through the itnerview, 24% of readers didn’t watch because they’d rather have been watching The Wheel of Fortune, 18% couldn’t work it into their schedule, and a mere 6% watched it and enjoyed it.

March 27th- No Poll

Poll of the Day: What Do You Think of Michelle Obama’s Attire?

No, no, no.  This question is NOT what you are probably thinking.  I’m not asking whether or not you think she is fashionable, but what you think of her wearing sleeveless items, which she has recently been under fire for.  I personally have ZERO problem with the First Lady showing a little arm.  Some, however, are not quite as accepting.  Vote in today’s poll to see how our others view the situation.

Thanks for participating!
