Alex Jones, Infowars Moneybomb And Richmond Top News

Alex Jones Infowars Moneybomb and Richmond surprisingly top news. First Alex Jones, the controversial internet star, apparently is in trouble. While he has the traffic from his far-flung web business, Jones is not earning enough livable money. Infowars Moneybomb is an effort to change that. But why is he in trouble and what's Richmond got to do with it.

According to Alex Jones' past work, for example his blasts about reverse racism focusing on people no one ever heard of and elevating it to news, he gets a lot of attention. But Alex has never shown a number of advetisers on his site to make that effort translate to revenue. Infowars Moneybomb is an internet event that it doesn't seem a lot of people are going to turn to. But the approach should be used by Richmond California to raise money for job training efforts - if the current mayor, Gayle McLaughlin, would be supportive of an idea not her own.

Because of that, the buzz in Richmond is around the candidacy of Maria Viramontes and Myrna Lopez. Two candidates Alex Jones would approve of. Viramontes and Lopez have been working to create good paying jobs that will drive economic development in Richmond. Viramontes and Lopez will listen to Richmond voters and support the issues they care about, including public safety and crime, jobs and education.

Viramontes and Lopez, two candidates for City Council in Richmond, California, who deserve their own Infowars Moneybomb.

Journalism 101: Newsworthy

Bill O'Reilly disrupts 'The View'

Courtesy of ABC
Today, October 14, 2010, Fox News' Bill O'Reilly made an appearance on The View to argue against the Muslim community center slated to be built two blocks from the World Trade Center. Viewers were shocked when O'Reilly's comments caused Joy Behar and Whoopi Goldberg to storm off stage.

O'Reilly said something along the lines of Muslims were the reason for the 9/11 attack and was shocked that the ladies on The View did not believe that Muslims didn't kill Americans on 9/11. O'Reilly insisted that 70 percent of Americans do not want the mosque.

Barbara Walters showed that she was upset that Joy and Whoopi took such drastic actions, and was disappointed that the two were unable to participate in a discussion that may have opposing viewpoints. She believed that the two were very unprofessional.

O'Reilly was speaking to Joy like a child and making such bold statements without even attributing where he was getting this information from, because clearly it is not common knowledge. At one point he even told Joy to listen up so that she could learn some things.

Joy and Whoopi returned back to the set, but Joy no longer sat next to O'Reilly.

Who was more in the wrong? Joy and Whoopi or Bill O'Reilly?

Academy and Oscar News: Bruce Davis Steps Down In 2011, Doc Series News

In Academy and Oscar News, Bruce Davis, the Executive Director of The Academy Of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences is stepping down from his post July of 2011, Variety reports. Davis has been at AMPAS since 1981, and held that post since 1989, or for 21 years.

Over at, Nikki Finke, long-time observer of the Oscar business, lays out several heavy-duty reasons why Davis is leaving:

..he (Davis) couldn't get an Academy Museum Of Motion Pictures off the ground, with AMPAS spending tens of millions of dollars to buy the property for the proposed 8-acre campus without first raising the necessary funding and now having nothing to show for the money because the project is postponed indefinitely. He also allowed AMPAS to lag behind in technology, which means administrators will have to start from ground zero to ensure Academy voters can receive the films in competition on their computers and vote online if the 2012 Oscars are moved up to January or early February as the Board of Governors is considering. He also presided over a smugly arrogant organization shrouded in secrecy...

There's no report of a person to take his place. But stay close to for news on who that may be as we approach 2011.

Christine O'Donell: Can You Remember Recent Supreme Court Decisions?

There’s an old saying ‘Don’t get too smug that you wind up being the smartest person in the room-In the end that won’t win you very many friends‘. In other words be wary of trying to make others feel or seem stupid. Be humble. Walk and talk WITH people. Don’t preach or talk AT them.
Thats a word of caution to those of us on the left leaning side of the room. Acting smug leads to us underestimating and alienating folks
It was hard not to think these thoughts when watching the Christine O’Donnell vs Chris Coons US Senate debate in Delaware that aired on CNN last night. Here O’Donnell was asked what recent Supreme Court decision has she disagreed with and she was stumped. O’Donnell couldn’t name one.
Now, a lot of my colleagues who are in the media or part of the pundit’s brigade took glee in her misstep. Many were quick to tweet about ‘how dumb she was’ and compared her to Sarah Palin who was similarly stumped when she was running for Vice President.Many are quick to say since she’s running for office she should know. ideally yes, I agree, but many look to see themselves in the folks they elect.
We saw this with George Bush and his ‘aaaw shucks lets have a beer’ mannerisms. Many accused an un-infiormed public of voting for President Obama without fully knowing what he was about other then skin color and our collective reaction to racial attacks directed at him.
If we believe what has been reported in the past we certainly know that many of the bills passed are not fully read by those in office. I caution folks who took glee in O’Donnell’s flub to slow down and not get too full of themselves. Her not knowing is not to far removed from the reality of the average ordinary person who works 9-5 and likes to think they stay fairly abreast of current events. Many folks look to see themselves in politicians and while O’Donnell is likely to lose in Delaware, what about other places?

Tea Party Candidate Sharon Angle is leading Harry Reid in spite saying a lot of 'dumb' things.  Where are all the smart people?
We’re gleefully calling people dumb but may wind up losing all sorts of seats to ‘dumb’ Tea Party types. How is that happening if we’re so damn smart? Why is Harry Reid trailing in polls to one of those ‘dumb’ tea party types-Sharon Angle? Where’s all the smart people in the room ?I’ll await your answer.
To those who wanna sit back and smirk, I caution and challenge you to ask your neighbor or family member the same question. Heck ask yourself. What recent Supreme Court decisions over the past couple of years do you disagree with? Cite 3 without looking them up. I’ll wait.
Most folks are likely to cite the Supreme Court decision that came down earlier this year that allows corporations the right to pump unlimited funds into campaign ads. However, most including myself are likely to have to Google to get the exact name and even then we better have some inkling because simply typing in ‘Supreme Court decisions’ wont get you very far.
Quick, is it People vs Citizens United? or the FEC vs Citizens United? Does anyone know who or what is Citizens United without looking it up?
Thank God for Wikipedia. I’d venture to say that very few of us and that includes many folks in the media knew that Citizens United was a conservative non profit. Even fewer knew who Citizen United intended to attack, but was prohibited, which in turn prompted the lawsuit and the eventual Supreme Court’s landmark decision.
For those who don’t know, it was Hillary Clinton. You can brush up on the case here.. FEC vs Citizens United.
There are many who are in media or political junkies who are up on such things or at the very least have enough info on hand that they can start a reasonable search. A lot of folks simply would not know where to begin, even with the internet at their finger tips. For example, type in the term Supreme Court decision and see what you get.. If it’s on Google you get the following sites:

Christine O'Donnell not knowing the most recent Supreme Court decisions is not too far removed from the reality of most people
Try reading your way through those pages and come up with reasonable conclusions. The average Joe or Jane is probably gonna call it a wrap and move on. Maybe our esteemed media outlets should spend less time telling me about Lindsey Lohan going to jail or Courtney Cox breaking up and more about important decisions made by the nine justices on the Supreme Court.
Again only the smug, smartest kid in the room is gonna clown O’Donnell for not knowing Supreme Court decisions. Everyone else is going to see themselves in her especially after she noted she didn’t know.
In addition I think most folks watching probably appreciated the fact that she noted howRoe vs Wade wouldn’t make abortions illegal, but would leave it up to states to decide. A lot of folks did not know that.
Here’s a brief breakdown
NANCY KARIBJANIAN: What opinions, of late, that have come from our high court, do you most object to?
O’DONNELL: Oh, gosh. Um, give me a specific one. I’m sorry.
KARIBJANIAN: Actually, I can’t, because I need you to tell me which ones you object to.
O’DONNELL: Um, I’m very sorry, right off the top of my head, I know that there are a lot, but I’ll put it up on my website, I promise you.
WOLF BLITZER: We know that you disagree with Roe v. Wade.
O’DONNELL: Yeah, but she said a recent one.
BLITZER: That’s relatively recent.
O’DONNELL: She said “of late.” But yeah. Well, Roe v. Wade would not put the power — It’s not recent, it’s 30-something years old –
BLITZER: But since then, have there been any other Supreme Court decisions?
O’DONNELL: Well, let me say about Roe v. Wade — If that were overturned, would not make abortion illegal in the United States, it would put the power back to the states.
BLITZER: But besides that decision, anything else you disagree with?
O’DONNELL: Oh, there are several when it comes to pornography, when it comes to court decisions — not to Supreme Court, but federal court decisions to give terroristsMirandize rights. There are a lot of things I believe — This California decision to overturn Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell. I believe there are a lot of federal judges legislating from the bench.
BLITZER: That wasn’t the Supreme Court. That was a lower –
You can peep the exchange below
O’DONNELL: That was a federal judge. That’s what I said. In California.
Now will last night’s stumble hurt Christine O’Donnell? Probably not. She was already hurt because of her infamous witchcraft remarks which were made known to us via HBO TV host Bill Maher who pulled out the 10 year old clips.
To the degree that’s made her the butt of jokes and has wiped away her shine and momentum is very different then her not knowing the most recent Supreme Court decisions. Trust me I was one of those folks that had a field day because of her remarks.
But I gotta be honest, I was riding that pony with the hopes it would gain traction and slow her roll. I don’t want Ms O’Donnell in the US senate. I disagree with her political Tea Party inspired views. The witchcraft flub is fair game. She can explain it away as being youthful indiscretion the same way President Barack Obama explained away his use of cocaine or the way former President Bill Clinton explained away his marijuana puff or lack of a puff. (He said he didn’t inhale-yeah right Bill)

We all know Christine O'Donnell, but who is Chris Coons? What do we know about him?
Lastly I cant say what’s what in Delaware but most folks outside its borders know Christine O’Donnell but most would be hard pressed to name her opponent Chris Coons without looking him up. Most of us would do so by googling her name and then reading whatever article popped up in hopes of seeing his name. While I can see folks not wanting O’Donnell in the senate what about her opponent? What’s he about? What’s his stance on issues? Is he progressive or another Ben Nelson/ Joe Liberman type? Has he excited voters so that we wanna vote for him or are folks riled up and wanna vote against O’Donnell? I’ll await your answers…

Oakland Children's Hospital's Own Head Nurse Attacks Nurses Union

Oakland Children's Hospital is being plagued by a nurses strike as this is written. As a fan of Children's Hospital and its staff, the current situation does not reflect how hard they've worked to keep the establishment a going concern in a tough economy.

This blogger is not anti-union, but some unions need to be called out when they're not playing to work with administration, but against it. Such is the California Nurses Association.

Someone's paying attention. Namely, Nancy Shibata, RN, MSN, Chief Nursing Officer, Children’s Hospital Oakland, who sent this opinion piece to be ran in this space:

CNA Nurses Union Out of Touch With Current Economic Realities At Children's Hospital Oakland

By Nancy Shibata, RN, MSN

Chief Nursing Officer, Children’s Hospital Oakland

Ironically, the high cost of health insurance is a difficult problem for hospitals today. Over the past 5 years, health insurance benefit costs have risen for Children's by 80 percent or over $17 million dollars. That's a hefty increase for any institution, especially one that is the primary provider of children's healthcare services for Alameda and Contra Costa Counties.

Children's Hospital Oakland is now facing a three-day strike by members of the California Nurses Association (CNA), the union that represents 700 of our nurses at our 190-bed hospital, over our health insurance benefit and pay proposals for the next three-year contract that we are attempting to negotiate with them.

Despite the fact that we are offering our nurses pay increases during the life of the contract and two healthcare plans that are 100-percent paid for by the hospital (and a third "premium" plan that they can chose with a monthly contribution), they are demanding higher pay and no benefit changes as part of a new three-year contract.

We value our nurses. They are vital and essential to our hospital and every patient. They provide the expertise and care, which combined with their personal skills and nurturing abilities, help make our young patients' experience a better one in every way.

The CNA union, which represents the nurses, unfortunately is out of step with both the economic realities facing Children's Hospital Oakland, but also with the broader economic climate nationally.

The three-day strike, which started today, is reflective of the CNA's inability to acknowledge and accept the changes that are occurring throughout the country related to wages and healthcare. A full-time nurse at Children’s earns, on average, $136,000 per year. A new graduate nurse on the day shift earns $95,000 per year. And this is without including what Children’s pays in addition for benefits.

At this time when our region, our nation and our people are struggling with the economic challenges of this difficult economy, this union is demanding no changes in its benefits (negotiated during a different economic climate) and increases in pay when they are not supported by the market or by Children’s ability to pay for them.

In our negotiations, Children's is proposing a wage freeze in 2010 with modest pay increases in the following years. We are asking the union to accept one health plan where members contribute a small percentage of the premium cost, while still offering two 100 percent employer-paid HMO and PPO health benefit plans for nurses and their families. The third, cost-share option, is a premium PPO that requires a pre-tax employee contribution ranging from $111 - $311 a month, depending on individual or family coverage.

A mix of employer-paid and contributory plans have been rolled out to other Hospital employees already. Currently, more than half of our employees have this type of healthcare benefit program and this bargaining session is our first opportunity to negotiate the change with the CNA.

The last CNA union contract, negotiated in better economic times in 2007, provided raises of 6% in 2007, 5% in 2008, and an additional 5% in 2009. These large increases are the basis for the Hospital's wage freeze proposal for the first year of the contract.

Earlier this year, Children's Hospital announced that it has lost more than $69 million over the past four years, of which $22 million was lost in 2009 alone. Since that time, the hospital has been restructuring its services, developing new business opportunities, and actively renegotiating private insurance and government reimbursements to cover patient care costs. As a not-for-profit regional pediatric medical center, our financial challenges stem from the poor economy, low reimbursement rates, increasing healthcare costs and a lack of public hospitals with pediatric inpatient beds.

Children's Hospital is on the road to financial stability, and we hope to reach it in 2012. We have made many changes to help secure our future and our ability to provide healthcare to the most vulnerable of patients, babies and children. Other industries have been crushed by the burden of labor contracts that were negotiated during prosperous times but could not be sustained during an economic downturn. We cannot let this happen to our vital hospital for children. We need the leadership of the CNA to step up and recognize that their members are highly valued, well-compensated and that 100-percent paid by employer healthcare benefits are a good package for everyone. Our children and our community deserve nothing less.

South Park goes Jersey

South Park's episode, It's a Jersey Thing, aired on Wednesday, October 13 at 10 p.m. EST was all about the Jersey trend on television including Jersey Shore and Real Housewives of Jersey. Watching the episode showed how ridiculous the reality tv shows truly are.

Although exaggerated the impersonations of certain stars, such as Snooki and The Situation from Jersey Shore, were realistic to the way they are perceived.

The part of the show that may be offensive is that in the end the hero who saves the day and saves South Park (and the rest of the country) from Jersey domination was Osama Bin Laden.

There is sure to be some interesting reactions from the reality stars depicted - but hopefully they will take it with a grain of salt and feel lucky that they are special enough to appear on the show (like the way the Kardashian's reacted).

Internet Explorer User? Dump It For FireFox Or Opera Browsers

If you're reading this and are an Internet Explorer user, please immediately click on this link, where you will be taken to the FireFox website. Download FireFox and use it instead of Internet Explorer.

Or to get the Opera Browser, here.


Because if you use Internet Explorer, chances are it's an older version and not Internet Explorer 8, which still has some problems with "rich media" applications. A "rich media" application is this blog, for example, that has a video player installed to show YouTube videos. Chances are that player's barely loading or not at all.

Moreover, YouTube stopped playing nice - supporting - older versions of Internet Explorer, specifically Internet Explorer 6, last year. You can download the Adobe Flash player and hope it works, but just use FireFox or Opera for that matter.

So, if you're having trouble seeing YouTube videos, it's not YouTube, it's your browser. Stop using Internet Explorer.

In fact, there's been a quiet war against Internet Explorer in much of the Tech Community, and that's the problem: the war's both quiet and confined to the Tech Community, when it needs to be loud and outside of it.

If you're computer's over three years old, and you're using the same version of Internet Explorer on it, time to switch.  You're missing a lot of good stuff on the Internet.

Muff Cabbage And Ashley Anderson Are New Urban Terms

Now that the last rescuer of the Chilean Miners has been brought back to the surface , we can turn to silly issues like Muff Cabbage and Ashley Anderson, the new urban terms.


"Muff Cabbage" refers to a term used in the South Park episode that aired Wednesday, and is also called "pink cabbage." According to forum postings, the reference to "Vagina, pussy, and cockpit" came from fans of the TV show, who then went to Urbandictionary and installed the term:

Vagina, pussy, cockpit.
"I really want to stuff her cabbage."
"His douglas fits my cabbage nicely."
"We're going out looking for cabbage."
"She wanted me to go down on her, so I slapped her in the face with my douglas and said, '*****, I'm not eating your rotten cabbage!'"
"I smashed her cabbage so hard there was cabbage juice on the ceiling. And my douglas."


As for "Ashley Anderson" that's not a woman but an Internet virus.  It's sent via email as an attachment that, when downloaded, can damage your computer.  Just don't download any strange files from emails that come from people you don't know, or are something you don't need.

Just where the "Ashley Anderson" virus came from is not known, but it's spreading.  It's even a MySpace page, complete with a fake music download.  Whatever you do, don't go there and touch it!

Stay tuned.
