Isn't it amazing that, within only one week of Tiger Woods crashing his Escalade, The press found every woman with whom Tiger has had an affair during the last few years? And, they even uncovered photos, text messages, recorded phone calls, etc.! Furthermore, they not only know the cause of the family fight, but they even know it was a 9 iron from his golf bag that his wife used to break out the windows in the Escalade. Not only that, they know which wedge! And, each & every day, they were able to continue to provide America with updates On Tiger's sex rehab stay, his wife's divorce settlement figures, as well as the dates & Tournaments in which he will play.
Now, Barack Hussein Obama has been in office for nearly four years, yet this very same press: Cannot find any of his childhood friends or neighbors; Or find any of Obama's high school or college classmates, or any of his former girlfriends; Or locate any of his college papers or grades; Or determine how he paid for both a Columbia & a Harvard education; Or discover which country issued his visa to travel to Pakistan in the 1980's; Or even find Michelle Obama's Princeton thesis on racism.
They just can't seem to uncover any of this. Yet, the public still trusts that same press to give them the whole truth!
Don't you find that amazing ?
NOW TELL ME THERE IS NO CORRUPTION IN THE AMERICAN PRESS

Earlier this season, she scored the season's first perfect score. On "Good Morning America," Bryan said the elimination was hard, but that she remains proud of her performance.

Career politician Sally Stutsman has run an ad in the Iowa City DePressed Citizen today, an ad she hopes will propel her to victory in her desire to gain a seat in the Iowa State House.
Stutsman, a Democrat, is running for Iowa House District 77, a new district. Here's the problem with her ad.... She's been a politician too long. Note that she's not touting her record.
She represents politics as usual. She's about saying one thing and doing another. Her ad is marketing, without substance.
She's been a Johnson County Supervisor for more than 17 years and many would argue that she has not represented her constituents well. Newport Road anyone? She supported a proposal to expand the road, the people that actually live on the road did not.
She says she stands for fiscal responsibility in the ad, but her record betrays her words. Saying one thing, doing another......
She says she stands for creating jobs in Iowa but does things like object to a convention and business opportunity in the Iowa City Coralville area. (Go to section "G" in the link above). Saying one thing, doing another....
Restoring Iowa's premier education status is a great goal, but she has no record of doing so. Saying one thing, doing nothing about it...
She claims to stand for protecting valuable farmland. It needs protection from her! And again, Newport Road anyone? And let's not forget that she followed the lead of others with the conservation bond issue to have Johnson County taxpayers cough up $20 million to buy up farmland. Saying one thing and doing another....
Her ad finishes with the line, "Let's get to work!" As a supervisor, her record is one of big spending, mismanagement and minimal accomplishment. She is a follower, not a true leader.
Let's get to work indeed, by no longer tolerating politics as usual. Sally Stutsman has been a less-than-stellar supervisor, so why would we send her to Des Moines?
IOWA CITY, IA. -- On October 30, 2012 at approximately 11:33 p.m., Iowa City Police officers responded to Black's Gaslight Village at 422 Brown St. for a report of an armed person. While enroute, officers were informed that there were two separate calls from people reporting they had been robbed. Multiple officers flooded the area, but were unable to immediately locate the suspect. Upon speaking with the victims, it was learned a male approached them, displayed a black handgun, pointed the gun directly at them, and demanded their purses. One of the victims ran into a residence and got away from the suspect while the other gave the suspect her purse and he then ran away to the east on Brown St. Both of these robberies occurred within a couple minutes of each other at separate locations in the complex and it's believed both were committed by the same person. An undisclosed amount of property and money was stolen during these robberies, but fortunately no one was injured during this incident.
From speaking with the victims and witnesses, it was determined the most accurate description of the suspect was a thin black male, approximately 5'10" - 6'0", in his 20's-30's wearing a dark blue or black hoody with white writing on it, dark pants, and dark shoes with white edges. The suspect also had a red bandana covering his face during the robbery.
Iowa City Area CrimeStoppers is offering up to a $1000 cash reward for information leading to the arrest of this suspect. Anyone with information about this crime is urged to contact CrimeStoppers at 358-TIPS (8477). All calls are held in strict confidence and anonymity is guaranteed. Individuals providing information do not have to reveal their identity to collect a reward.
