Gossip Girl Ends Winter Session with Drama

We wanted to catch up on one of shows Gossip Girl and recap the end of 2009. We like the show still uses Gossip Girl here, your one and only source into the scandalous lives of Manhattan’s elite. The show has moved away from Gossip Girl as she no longer has the 411 on the characters dirty and juicy gossip. The show still does end with X.O.X.O Gossip Girl, but it is clear the storyline is no longer guided by the Gossip Girl. The scenes are longer away from the fast switching of the past and the Gossip Girl dropped in comments no longer drive the show or the reactions. There was even a point in the congressman scandal where Gossip Girl was named as a third reference for getting the damaging video Serena and Trip the congressman in the elevator. There also have been multiple references to TMZ. The story has fractured into three groups, the kids at NYU, the kids in the business world, the kids back at Constance. The plots jump back and forth and adding the parents in where needed. The role of the parents has taken a back seat this season. We did enjoy the last episode of the winter session where all four groups tried for a Thanksgiving holiday at the new Rufus House. This was a disaster and the turkey on the table was never even carved. We look forward to where Dan and Nate find themselves. The character of the season so far is Dan. He has had a relationship with Georgina (Michelle Trachtenberg), Olivia Burke (Hilary Duff) and included a threesome with Olivia and Vanessa. College years are good for him. The other question is will Serena ever make a good choice as she has not sober or sober.

More Transparency like pulling teeth

Transparency and House Democrats fighting for President Obama. There was wide-ranging request by Republicans for documents on private meetings that White House officials had last year with doctors and other medical providers as health care legislation was being prepared. This of course was done behind closed-doors. The house was able to limit requests to records detailing agreements the White House reached with provider groups. The Republicans have rightly accused President Barack Obama of not fulfilling his promise to conduct health care talks in public. These talks held last May at the White House led to the announcement that doctors, pharmaceutical companies and other health care providers had agreed to find about $2 trillion in health care savings over the coming decade. this kind of back room dealings are out in front now because of Healthcare reform that included extra federal aid for Nebraska and Louisiana. This has not been passed yet but it is clear the details have been worked out as Democrats consulted with White House officials in working out the agreement with committee Republicans. This is the kind of thing that makes President Obama and the Democrats appear to be snake oil salesmen, they have a potion to cure everything and they know more than you.

State of the Union Wrap up

We watched President Obama who was stopped for applause 86 times in his State of Union address, this tradition needs to end. He spent two thirds of the speech dealing with the economy and jobs. There was so much speculation that he was going to move to the center, that never happened. It was 40 minutes before he even mentioned Healthcare reform and only took 50 minutes to lay some blame of previous President George Bush. There were two uncomfortable moments when he called out the Supreme Court as the only sat ten feet away. This happened again when he mention open military for gays in front of the Joint Chiefs of the military. Both groups sat stoic and must have know it was coming and sat staring straight ahead as the gallery leaped and applauded behind them. He finished up using the quote “I Don’t Quit” as Karl Rove reported he said “I” 96 times. There also might be a shock at was not said as he never mentioned Guantanamo Bay of the trails for terrorists in New York City. We were surprised he pushed Cap and Trade as we though and most pundits after the speech agreed have been dead for at least six months.

Pre-State of the Union Post

Tonight the President Obama is set to deliver his second state of the union. We are eagerly waiting to see the spin and shine he can put on his freshman effort. The rumor is that he will unveil a jobs-heavy agenda. The buzz is that the goal is to Get the economy, the confidence of voters and his own presidency on surer footing. The pre-speech up fronts say the speech will have two themes this first is to reassure Americans that he understands their struggles and convince people that he is working to change Washington. There should be detail about how he wants to help businesses hire again, salvage an overhaul of health care insurance. There have been many misses over the first year and health care reform stands at the top, ending the war in Iraq, Guantanamo Bay detainees are still there and the influx of thousands of troops in Afghanistan. We could her more of the same as he reverts to an agenda that would include health care reform, regulation of Wall Street, energy and immigration reform. We will heard about the lame spending freeze on some domestic spending for three years. The Republican response will be delivered by Gov. Bob McDonnell of Virginia, this is another good move for the GOP as it was McDonnell who won an election that President Obama campaigned hard for his opponent. We heard Scott Brown say yesterday on the radio that he will not be in attendance for the speech. We have a feeling his presence and what it represents will hover over the whole night like a cloud of clarity.

Go Scott Go –Brown on the Radio

Scott Brown was on the local radio today in Boston, this guy is a winner. There was plenty of reasons for him to win but to get over a million votes in Massachusetts there had to be something else. We think we might have heard it today. Brown speaking in the afternoon told the radio audience about meeting Patrick Kennedy on his first trip to Washington as senator. He told the story without jab even though he was being baited by the host he stayed true to the story. Patches meet Scott Brown was cordial and gave him a book written by his father the late Ted Kennedy who seat he will be sitting in the senate. The thing that makes Scott Brown appealing is that he said of the meeting with patches, he had a great respect for him as he did not think if he was in Patrick Kennedy’s shoes he could have done it. He is so refreshing an honest for a politician we cannot believe it and he is a republican. There is something so genuine about him and it is definitely what was tapped into by the non republican liberal leaning voters in Massachusetts.

dog grooming and more jobs losts

On November 4, 2008 the Massachusetts voters banned greyhound racing. This cost the state jobs as these race dogs needed dog grooming, training, care and feeding. The tracks themselves needed people to work the windows, administration, staff, concessions, and maintenance. In a time when the state needs jobs there have been at least 1000 people added to the unemployment ranks. There is more people that take of the greyhounds that are both associated with the racetracks as well as even more that handle other parts of the racing community. All of the dog racing tracks in Massachusetts were be ordered to shut down by January 1, 2010, as commercial dog racing was slowly phased out. This was due to Massachusetts Ballot Question three which passed, with 56 to 44. The 56% majority vote passed The Greyhound Protection Act. Even though there is no live Greyhound action in the bay state any longer there is still simulcast racing from these tracks as they try to hang on. There is a need to supplement the lost income by adding casino slot machines and gaming tables. The hours of operation have been reduced and they have added simulcasted thoroughbred racing as well. There is no magic replacement and it is uncertain the future of these tracks.
