The Obama administration have always pandered to the anti-oil lobby tree huggers and this should be no shock. The problem we have is there is a wind-power industry lobby that has the crazy left support dropping cash. We never expected that the Obama administration said it will allow companies to kill or injure eagles without the fear of prosecution for up to three decades. Thirty years and killing eagles is their nothing sacred as an eagle. We wonder if these are the same people that lobby to save seals and whales. Do they not know that dozens of bald and golden eagles being killed each year by the giant, spinning blades of wind turbines. President Barack Obama has sold the farm for pollution-free energy. He has nearly doubled the wind power in his first term as a he claims as it his way to help with global warming. This is not the only truth as we have learned corn-based ethanol blended into the gasoline has proven more damaging to the environment than politicians promised and worse than the government acknowledges. We hope people are taking not this president is willing to accept environmental trade-offs – pollution, loss of conservation land and the deaths of eagles. Green energy at all cost to combat the phony baloney climate change.
Washington coming down to the wire for the end of the year. House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi might be the reason as she is withholding support for across-the-board cuts until Republicans also agrees to renew expiring unemployment benefits. These add benefits add $25 billion to extend federally-paid jobless benefits. Those benefits average $269 a week to people whose 26 weeks of state-paid unemployment benefits have run out. On the GOP side are ready to block a proposal to raise fees on airline tickets to pay for TSA agents. The fee proposal is increasing Transportation Security Administration charges that could add $5 to the cost of a typical round-trip airline ticket. The GOP must be a little nervous about another government shutdown in January with no budget deal in sight. The House will exit Washington by next Friday, leaving little time to pass a budget bill, a defense policy measure and renewal of food stamps and farm programs. We think we will see a temporary extension through the end of January to give negotiators more time to fight over the details. There is a rumor that there is a proposal to require both military and civilian federal workers to contribute more to their pensions, and higher premiums on companies whose pension plans are insured by the government. This is a step in the right direction.
This is a special day so you will not see, fiscal problems, GOP, President Obama, Obamacare, NSA, a women of the week or even congress. Today is 12/5/13 being this is tea512 there are two special days May twelfth and December fifth both are natural 512. Depending on the way you write dates. We always try to stop on these two days and write about why we are called tea512 and give people the clue it is due to the dates May twelfth and December fifth and that is usually as far as we go. The rest is going to have to be left up to guessing and speculation after all there has to be some mystery or it would be too easy. We want you all to celebrate like we have at the office today. We have done nothing but celebrate by drinking and playing music loud enough to not hear the phones and have the business next door as always complain. We are going to take the staff out for dinner thinking Cheesecake Factory and then off to a local dive bar that is the new hang. We are going to a local Cambridge club that has live bands every night. We will back at it tomorrow chasing off the hair of the dog and stomping out liberals on posts of truth and glory, thanks for reading and have a great day.
This week we used a photo of Ashley Green for the women of the week. The photo was taken premiere of The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones held at the ArcLight Cinerama Dome in Hollywood, California. This was the first time Ashely appeared with her honey-colored hair on the red carpet. She hit it out of the park in a Temperley London Fall 2013 sleeveless white Laurel mini shift dress, with ivory crystal-embellished, and pearl studded detail that traveled along the neckline and split down the center. Alice Temperley is a British fashion designer based in London. Her fashion label, Temperley London was launched in 2000. Temperley London produces three lines; Temperley London, ALICE by Temperley and Temperley Bridal. There are ten collections a year across the three lines, including Cruise and Pre Fall. Temperley has five standalone boutiques; two in London, the flagship on Mayfair’s Bruton Street and an occasion wear boutique in Notting Hill, as well as stores in Los Angeles, Dubai and Doha, Qatar. Temperley London is sold in 300 stores in 37 different countries. Ashley put this look together by wearing a foot tattoo revealing matching nude sky high platforms pumps. She went bear with no jewels or clutch.
We wanted to let you know if you are in the Tennessee area a great take is the National Ornamental Metal Museum . It is the only museum in the US devoted exclusively to the preservation and promotion of fine metalwork. The best part about this museum, it is not just a place where art is displayed, there is art being made while you are there. At the Metal Museum you can not only see works of art, you can see the artists working, watch and learn the craft and then you can craft the art. Admission is $6 for adults and $4 for children and groups of all ages enjoy viewing exhibits in the Museum galleries. If you book in advance, you can receive a tour guided by a knowledgeable staff member. Then, the Museum metalsmiths demonstrate their craft in the Schering-Plough Smithy. If you are local you can even take classes there. In 1975, at the National Ornamental and Miscellaneous Metals Association conference in Atlanta, GA, members of the Memphis Chapter proposed an industry museum. The Metal Museum is located on a 3.2 acre site overlooking the Mississippi River just south of downtown Memphis. The property, which includes three historic buildings, had been part of a public health service hospital. When the hospital closed in the mid-1960s, it was deeded to the City of Memphis through the Heritage and Conservation Act. The Metal Museum opened to the public on February 5, 1979.
This week we picked our favorite vampire of all time and the only reason to watch Twilight. Ashley Michele Greene was born on February 21, 1987 in Jacksonville, Florida and was our last year 2012 #8 in the top 51. She had spent the previous two years 2011 and 2010 at #11. We are trying to clean up the year using the photos we did not get to. This was Ashley at her movie premier for The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, looking good as always. Ashley is a great actress and super-hot with an awesome curvaceous body and long legs. We also picked her this week because Joe Jonas who can never keep his mouth shut is telling everyone he lost his virginity to her. You would expect better from any normal person but other deal with the loss of fame by grasping at straws. We hope there is real backlash for this release of personal information. Ashley having a bad 2013 and did not need this after her apartment fire that killed her dog and is being sued for damages by her neighbors. To look ahead she four movies to release of the next year, Random, Wish I was Here, Staten Island Summer, and the much anticipated Burying the Ex.
It has come full circle we all love the troops and we watch as people do not support the war but support the troops. We watch the same people who vote to stripe the military of funding then send out press releases telling us to keep the military in their prayers. We see them tell us during Veteran’s day to support the military and we go live to Afghanistan. Not to say the military gets a big head but returning heroes are looking to right Washington. Pennsylvania in the 8th Congressional District, a former Army Ranger Kevin Strouse is running as a Democrat. In Arizona, Republican Martha McSally is putting her military service at the forefront of her second congressional campaign. Strouse and McSally are among more than a dozen veterans recruited to run for the House in 2014. It is clear that veterans are looking to capitalize on the public’s high regard for military service and when you balance that against the record-low confidence it has in Congress why would they not give it try. We think this is a cure to the incumbent always winning at the house level. There has got to be a change and we at the tea512 are all about new blood democrat and republican because what we have is not working.
Not much going on this Thanksgiving weekend so you get to thinking. We were talking about how grim it was for the GOP after the government shutdown the democrats seemed to not only be top of their game, but left us feeling a little deflated. Then the season changed the weather got colder and Obamacare happened. Now we hear there are many Democrats in Congress worried about the party’s re-election prospects. Then you have never heard this for the first time distancing themselves from President Barack Obama after the disastrous rollout of his health care overhaul. This more than likely is the people who are the bread and butter of the off year midterm elections are part of the some 4.2 million Americans received notices from insurers that policies Obama had promised they could keep were being canceled. It is sad this is the one that matters after the attack in Benghazi, the IRS scandal, a gun-tracking operation and now Obamacare. They have finally seen the light and realize the White House is operating without integrity. But he noted that not all his Democratic colleagues agree. Thirty-nine House Democrats defied a veto threat and voted for a GOP-sponsored bill to permit the sale of individual health coverage that falls short of requirements in the law. This is going to be a good twelve months ahead.

Whatever stage you are we hope you have a Happy, Healthy and Fun Thanksgiving.
This week for the photo of Women of the Week we used the number one on the list of 2012, Rihanna. She went to the American Music Awards at Nokia Theater in Los Angeles. The first ever Icon Award winner wore a sexy Jean Paul Gaultier two-piece ensemble from the spring 2013 Couture Collection. The dress showcased her toned midriff in a plunging sequin-embellished black bustier top. The full length skirt with a girdle-like construction was semi-sheer enough to show off her shapely tanned legs, it was embellished crystal detailing and a floor-sweeping flowing train. Jean Paul Gaultier is a French haute couture and Pret-a-Porter fashion designer. Gaultier was the creative director of Hermès from 2003 to 2010. Gaultier never received formal training as a designer. Instead, he started sending sketches to famous couture stylists at an early age. Pierre Cardin was impressed by his talent and hired him as an assistant in 1970. Rihanna also wore a collection of jewels courtesy of Lynn Ban and Repossi plus an Alex Mika ear cuff to accessorize her look. Alberto Repossi founded in 1925. Granddaughter, Gaia, is now the Artistic Director and continues to pay tribute to the family heritage with every new collection. The knowledge and craft of three generations—a legacy rich in both tradition and bold design—has been passed along. Much of the work is still done in the same workshops from the start. Rihanna finished her look by wearing her favorite shoe designer Manolo Blahnik and a pair of BB pumps.
This Obamacare failures keep coming today the Supreme Court agreed to rule on whether businesses may use religious objections to escape a requirement to cover birth control for employees. This issue has divided the lower courts in some 40 lawsuits asking to be spared from having to cover some or all forms of contraception. The Obama administration and the liberals were happy to promote a range of preventive care, free of charge, as a key benefit of Obamacare. Contraception is included in the package of cost-free benefits. This is and was always an attack on the religious freedom of employers. The court will consider two cases Hobby Lobby Inc. and Conestoga Wood Specialties Corp. The court said the cases will be combined for arguments, probably in late March. A decision should come by late June. In both cases the Christian families that own the companies say that insuring some forms of contraception violates their religious beliefs. This issue is largely confined to religious institutions and family-controlled businesses with a small number of shareholders. The justices chose two cases in which the companies object to only a few of the 20 forms of contraception approved by the Food and Drug Administration. We just like there is another hit coming to Obamacare, the left, the president and Hollywood that want protect every religion but the one the country was founded upon.
This week we highlight the top woman of the year for 2012, Rihanna. She was born on February 20, 1988 her given name is Robyn Rihanna Fenty and she was born in Saint Michael, Barbados. She has had an impressive run on the chart as she has charted every year in 2008 and 2009 she was #7, she jumped one place to #6 in 2010. Before she leaped to number one she came in #5 in 2011. She has a good chance at a repeat as she just sets the screen on fire, live, in videos, or just standing on the red carpet. We picked her this week as she performed and was given the first ever Icon award from the American Music Association in 2013. She has a total of seven music releases and her body of work is amazing. She has had a new release every year for the last four years. When you look at the releases you see 2009 Rated R reached #4, 2010 Loud and 2011 Talk that Talk, reached #3 and Unapologetic was her first ever US #1. She has even found time to appear in a major movie releases. We are big fans we like the way she sings, her songs, her sexy and her style. The world is hers with no sign of stopping.
We cannot stand this how this president chases money and stiffs tradition. President Barack Obama set up two days of shaking down money in Seattle, San Francisco and Beverly Hills. Remember the president could not attend the 150th anniversary commemoration of the Gettysburg Address because of the ObamaCare crash. The hob knobbing starts with a reception at the home of Magic Johnson and Marta Kauffman, the co-creator of Friends. There is real work so he can use Air Force One he intended to use the trip to keep the heat on Congress to pass an overhaul of immigration laws. He planned to address that issue during a stop at a Chinese recreation center in San Francisco, and to promote his economic agenda at the DreamWorks Animation studio in Glendale. In Seattle, he was set to attend two events, one at the home of Tom Campion, co-founder of the clothing chain Zumiez, and the other at the house of a former Microsoft executive, Jon Shirley. We know the Democratic National Committee has a massive 2012 debt and they need their star to make it rain, the question is does the star still shine. We know these fundraisers are with his people and their support is not affected by getting their health insurance cancelled.
Political correctness run amuck as Duke Energy Corporation has pleaded guilty to killing eagles and other birds at two Wyoming wind farms and agreed to pay $1 million as part of the first enforcement of environmental laws protecting birds against wind energy facilities. The wind energy company had been prosecuted for a death of an eagle or other protected bird. The company pleaded guilty to killing 14 eagles and 149 other birds at its Top of the World and Campbell Hill wind farms outside Casper, Wyoming . All the deaths occurred from 2009 to 2013. The president of the American Bird Conservancy jumped off on this and has pushed the Fish and Wildlife Service to investigate 18 bird-death cases involving wind-power facilities, and there have even been some referred to the Justice Department. These wind farms have turbines as tall as 30-story buildings. Is there any kind of energy generation that is completely free of impacts? This where we have really let things get out of control. We want to know who gets the one million in the settlement. This was the first case ever prosecuted under the Migratory Bird Treaty Act against a wind energy company. We are sure it is no surprise that the Obama administration who has championed pollution-free wind power and used the same law against oil companies and power companies for drowning and electrocuting birds. Turnabout about is fowl play.
We love the fact the administration cannot pump their chest on fixes to the Obamacare website. The much-maligned health insurance website should be able to weather an expected year-end crush of customers was the latest claim. There has been a combination of software fixes, design changes, added hardware. The real fix was the newly announced breathing room making the run on the system not as intense. This should provide the right combination to finally deliver a workable website. The software consultant so called White House troubleshooter Jeffrey Zients thinks this gives them the capacity they need to reach everybody for the new period of time allotted. The big key is the change that makes policyholders must pay their premiums by December 31. We wonder how this is going to go and if it will really happen. We watch the coming weeks as every week a new edict from the administration sends the companies scrambling. More time for consumers means less time for insurers to verify enrollments and correct errors. We know that the ObamaCare Act covers the uninsured through a combination of subsidized private plans and expanded Medicaid. Consumers were supposed to be able to apply and enroll online. Zients had set a November 30 goal to have the federal site working smoothly for the vast majority of users. They backed off as there was a significant outage this week, lasting several hours. The site is now able to handle about 25,000 users at the same time. Zients said upgrades during downtime this weekend will put it on track to handle 50,000 simultaneous users we will see.
This week the women of the week was Lea Michelle the photo we used was from the 2012 Screen Actors Guild Awards at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles. The gown she wore was from the Fall/Winter 2011 Atelier Versace collection. The dress she is wearing was a Grecian-style one shoulder Versace pale blue-grey gown with a daring split to the hip on her left hand side and features a fitted corset. To accessories she wore Lorraine Schwartz diamond jewels, and a sparkling evening bag by Fendi. Lorraine E. Schwartz Inc. is based in New York City. The jewelry business has been a part of Schwartz’s family for three generations, run mostly as a small business. Schwartz took over the family business in 1989, and renamed the company Lorraine Schwartz Diamonds & Fine Jewelry. She also remade the company business model so that her works are sold only at Bergdorf Goodman in New York City, by appointment at her 5th Avenue showroom in Manhattan and by private commission. When it came to shoes she wore an elegant silver super high Casadei pumps. Fendi is an Italian luxury fashion house that is specialized included leather goods, fragances, eyewear, timepieces, and writing instruments. It was launched in 1925 by Edoardo and Adele Fendi, as a fur and leather shop in Via del Plebiscito, Rome; but today is a multinational luxury goods brand owned by LVMH.
It is good to see that nothing has changed in the Senate, stupid is what stupid does. There is a $625 billion defense bill that establishes military policy delayed in the Senate as Democrats and Republicans struggle on the enormous bill. The divide comes because the right way to do it as the Republicans insist is an open process that would allow them to vote on amendments to the popular defense authorization bill that has become law every year for the past half century. The problem is the moronic lead being set by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid as the brain dead idea to limit amendments and wrap up the legislation in a few days. This would avoid a vote on a possible measure to impose new penalties on Iran and another on health care. We know Reid is working on orders from the White house as want a pause on sanctions while the President Barack Obama and other world powers negotiate a nuclear deal with Tehran. The problem is the limiting of the ability of members of the Senate to offer amendments goes against the way the senate works. This bill that authorizes more than $500 billion, we think this is powder keg and we are at the beginning of a long ride.
We had another good laugh at the expense of Obamacare. We heard President Barack Obama urged Americans to enroll for health insurance by mail, in person and over the phone. This is not throwing the website totally under the bus but pretty close would not say. We know the idea is to lower the expectations of the error prone, freezing screen, hard to navigate, HealthCare.gov website. They are selling the down play that the website maybe never fixed or the solution for the uninsured ever. The White House has a problem and needs more creative ways to get folks into the system including direct enrollment through insurance companies. The best stat came from the White House as they actually had to admit that one in five will never be able to complete their enrollment through the website due to technical glitches, discomfort with using computers or complex personal tax situations. They actually seem to get it now saying that purchasing insurance for a lot of American is going to be complicated. Remember the deadline they set for themselves is November 30 and it is coming closer. The bottom line is the president said there would be a high-tech, streamlined insurance market which is clear will never materialize for millions of Americans.
This week we highlight last year’s #9, Lea Michele Sarfati. This was huge jump for her as she was just #18 in 2011 and #22 her break out year of 2010. Lea was born August 29, 1986 known professionally as Lea Michele and was born in The Bronx, New York City, and grew up in Tenafly, New Jersey. We feel that with award season coming up Lea is going to be steeping out and looking fine. It is a shame she does not show off her awesome body in the show Glee, but when she hits the red carpet she is red hot. We think this is going to be a pretty tame year on Glee as well as the loss of her costar and fiance Cory have a black cloud hanging over the show since the announcement. We know there is going to be at least one more season but one has to wonder how long a two state show can keep running. The other problem with all these high school shows is the kids must grow up and move on so the cast needs to change. This usually means the people that made you want to see the show must leave and the replacement never live up to what made you like the show to start.
