Oh Yea baby, we do not want to say we told you so, oh yes we do. We first heard about the pitch in Denmark for the 2016 Olympics to come to Chicago, we knew the President Barack Hussein Obama would not reisit. We called the article A Presidential Olympic riddle and it went to post on September 20, 2009. We knew there was no way he was going to let a world stage in Europe go by without making a speech. They claimed he would be to busy with heathcare but we knew better we all know him better. This will be the first time the White House has ever lobbied for the international event. Chicago is in the running against Rio de Janeiro, Madrid and Tokyo. The president is determined that his trip would not take away from the healthcare process. The “Bring Olympics to Chicago” team also includes talk show host Oprah Winfrey, 14 Olympic and two Paralympic gold medalists, including Michael Johnson, Jackie Joyner-Kersee, Nadia Comaneci and Nastia Liukin. Here is the test if President Barack Hussein Obama has enough juice on the world stage or if he is seen as a great talker but an empty suit, this could be the looking glass into the world perception. He has said the President Bush broke ties, he is mending fences, and all people will have a voice at the table. This will be the proof that these relations have turned a corner. The again it could just be another failed trip abroad like the last European trip in July.
This week we highlight last years number 51Shakira Isabel Mebarak Ripoll. Shakira was born on February 2, 1977 in Barranquilla, Colombia and she is known the entire world as Shakira. She is a singer-songwriter, musician, record producer, and dancer. She had tow releases using local producers with out much success, when she produced her own music in 1995 people took notice. In 2001, Shakira broke through into the English-speaking world with the release of Laundry Service, which sold over thirteen million copies worldwide. Followed up four years later, with the two-album project called Fijación Oral Vol. 1 and Oral Fixation Vol. 2. This produced the song “Hips Don’t Lie” According to Nielsen Broadcast Data Systems; “Hips Don’t Lie” was the most-played pop song in a single week in American radio history. It was played 9,637 times in one week and is the Best-Selling Single of Last 10 Years. Here current single and album She Wolf is climbing up the charts with great success. She has won two Grammy Awards, seven Latin Grammy Awards, and has been Golden Globe-nominated. She is the highest-selling Colombian artist of all time, and the second most successful female Latin singer having sold over 50 million albums worldwide. She made the Tea512 because she is hot as pistol, shake like a slinky and is intoxicating to watch perform. Last year she just made the list but we think she will have a higher standing this year when all is said and done.

File this he did not see that coming, or maybe he did. When President Obama claims the economy is turning around he always say we are not out the woods yet. We think he has known about the latest hammer that is going put a strain on the US Economy. The combination of big job losses and a the growth in early retirement claims, 23% higher than usual, will force Social Security to pay out more in benefits than it collects in taxes over the next two years, this is the first time that has been in more than thirty years. The number is not small either as it will be $10 billion in 2010 and $9 billion in 2011. The other part is right now Social Security has amassed a surplus of $2.5 trillion. There have been close to 2.2 million people that have applied for Social Security retirement benefits since October. The problem of course is the loss of 6.9 million U.S. jobs. The Social Security program is funded by payroll taxes, which if less are working less in going in. The fuzzy math comes from the Federal Budget Offices which claims Social Security is projected to start generating surpluses again in 2012 before permanently returning to deficits in 2016. Without a new fix, the $2.5 trillion in Social Security’s trust funds will be exhausted in 2037. Those funds have actually been spent over the years on other government programs. They are now represented by government bonds, or IOUs, that will have to be repaid as Social Security draws down its trust fund. Your hero President Barack Obama has said he would like to tackle Social Security next year. About 43 million retirees and their dependents receive Social Security benefits. An additional 9.5 million receive disability benefits. You know how this is going to play out, more payroll taxes or a reduction in payouts.

Being President is not as easy as telling everyone you will stand for hope and change. You will stop war, create peace, balance the budget, put a chicken in every pot, not raise taxes, and give free healthcare. People with a sense of the way government works understand these thing are impossible, unfortunately the followers of President Barack Hussein Obama thought he was different. He may have even thought he was himself. We know find out that President Barack Hussein Obama may not be able to close the Guantanamo Bay prison by January. The administration has run into legal and logistical problems moving the over 220 detainees. Senior administration officials for the first time Friday admitted difficulties in completing the lengthy review of detainee files and resolving other questions mean they will not make the January deadline President Barack Hussein Obama promised on inauguration day and all through the campaign. The issues include establishing a new set of rules for military trials, finding a location for a new prison to house detainees and finding host countries for those who can be released. There is a day when everyone grows up and put away childish things or you wake and you’re a grown up and realize that most real world problems you can not wave a magic wand and change everything.

There has not been a good comedy on ABC in long time. We knew when Bob Saget was signed on for the show it was going to have an edge. He has proven through cable and live shows he was trying to shed the image of the Full House dad. The costar on the show was another journey actress Cynthia Stevenson. The first show premiered on April 6, 2009 as it ran in the 9:30PM time slot. The last show which did not have the feel of a season finale turned out to be a series finale on August 7, 2009. ABC Entertainment President Steve McPherson announced that Surviving Suburbia was officially cancelled. The first run had thirteen episodes One of the best parts of this show was the character neighbor Lyndsey Jolly, a very hot young girl. The character was a teen that was already with child and still in school. The show did revolve around Bob Saget’s character Steve Patterson although we never really knew why he was home all the time or what he did for work. The typical husband plots getting caught lying, trying to hide things from the wife and meddling in the school kid’s affairs all this aside we found the show to be funny and glimpses of reality. We are surprised it did not have the pull to stay on the air based on the Bob Saget and the time slot. Maybe it was the fact the show was a cast off from the CW and never really had a home, but was used to fill in a hole in the schedule over the summer.

Do not let something your messiah President Barack Obama say get in your way. The House Democrats are considering a tax on high-cost insurance plans to help pay for health care overhaul. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, claims the tax is only under consideration. The House Democratic plan calls for raising income taxes on upper-income people to pay for covering the uninsured. The high-cost plans are expensive because they come with no co-payments or deductibles, and cover every dollar spent for health care. Some are expensive because they are sold to companies with older employees, or workers in high-risk occupations. This is a clear bait and switch as the House Democrats want to adopt the insurance tax to reduce the income tax increase that they already floated. The House Democrats are also struggling to get their 10-year, $1 trillion-plus bill down to the $900 billion price tag. Major cuts could be required, but Democrats want to protect the subsidies their plan offers to low-income Americans to help them buy coverage. Those subsidies are the most costly part of the bill. The other large cost in the bill is providing specified benefits such as preventive and surgical care and mental health services in policies sold to consumers who receive federal subsidies to make the cost more affordable. The problem is the Democrats have separated as House liberals are pushing for provider payment rates tied to Medicare rates but five percent higher, moderates say five percent is not enough and it would hurt struggling hospitals and other providers. The other bone of contention is how to address regional disparities in Medicare payment rates. If these guys cannot come up with something together how can they expect to sell it to the US?
