Tiger Mom…Meet Mama Grizzly!

Amy Chua, Tiger Mother...

Sarah Palin -self described Mama Grizzly

This one is kicking up a bit of a storm… And while Palin isn’t involved in this one in any way (or with the death threats against Chua made by folks likely not  associated with, or motivated by either  Palin or her followers) – you can’t escape her “Mama Grizzly” imagery of American motherhood as a contrast…

Strict, Controversial Parenting Style Leads to Death Threats for ‘Tiger Mother’ Amy Chua

Amy Chua calls herself a “Tiger Mother” because of her strict parenting methods that didn’t allow for play dates, sleepovers or choice in extra-curricular activities for her two daughters.

But her essay in the Wall Street Journalhas made her one of the most talked-about – and criticized mothers – in the blogosphere.

On January 8, the newspaper published excerpts of her book in an article titled “Why Chinese Mothers Are Superior.” The Internet erupted in a firestorm of outrage over the piece, in which she described how she belitted one daughter — calling her “garbage,” and threatened to withhold food and bathroom breaks from the other if the 7-year-old didn’t play the piano perfectly.

The outrage is so intense that Chua has even gotten death threats, according to reports…

The controversy over Chua’s book, “Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother,” heated up further on Saturday when Ayelet Waldman, a Jewish author and mother, responded with her essay, entitled “In Defense of the Guilty, Ambivalent, Preoccupied Western Mom.”

Waldman’s essay humorously outlines differences between what she sees as the lackadaisical approach taken by western mothers and the strict regimen Chinese mothers use on their children that Chua discusses.

The first Wall Street Journal piece, which took excerpts from Chua’s parenting memoir “Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother,” ignited a heated debate across the Internet, with critics claiming that the book advocates abusive parenting, while others asserted that it would lead to xenophobia and feed China haters.

Aided by the controversy, “Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother” reached the No. 6 slot in the Amazon sales rankings on Tuesday, the day it was released.

Juan Williams To Lose His Other TV Gig?

Juan Williams was recently booted from his gig at NPR to the anger and chagrin of conservatives…

Now it seems, at the hue and cry from the same conservatives, he might be booted from his Faux News gig because of stating the obvious truth – The Sno’ Ho’ is stupid.

2012 Election – Sno’ Ho’ vs. “Hair” Trump

You're Fired!

He has a hit TV show where he fires contestants…

She has a TV show where she fires at defenseless animals.

He made millions by cunning Real estate deals…

She made millions by conning conservatives.

He’s got hair…

She’s got hair.

The one thing he’s got she doesn’t,  is nobody in their right mind accuses “The Donald” of being stupid…

Whereas anyone with a mind, knows the Sno’ Ho’ is.

“Hair” Trump for President… Indeed.

Trump ‘really thinking’ about prez bid

Let’s get one thing straight: Donald Trump doesn’t want to run for president. Honestly, he doesn’t. Not interested.

But because the country is in such dire straits, he says, the business tycoon and perennial publicity hound just might have no choice. The country needs him.

“For the first time really would think about it. And I am thinking about it. It doesn’t mean I want to do it. I’d prefer not doing it. I’m having a lot of fun doing what I’m doing. It’s a great time to be buying things. I’m buying a lot of things and really having a good time,” Trump told Joy Behar Wednesday on HLN, CNN’s sister network.

“But I hate – you know, I’m very proud of this country. I’m very proud to be an American. And frankly, I hate what I’m seeing. I hate that friends of mine from Europe, from Asia, from all over the world – they’re telling me stories about this country,” the reality television host lamented.

Trump said President Obama particularly embarrassed America when he traveled to Copenhagen a year ago in a failed last-minute bid to secure the 2016 summer Olympics for Chicago.

“Our President flies over to see if he can get the bid. Now, he then comes back. We don’t end up not only in first place. We don’t end up in second place or third place. We were in fourth place,” said Trump.
 “Now, for the president of this great country to fly over there, he has to be given a wink. Like, come over, we’d love to have you. And you’re going to get it. I mean, do you know how bad we looked?”

Ultimately, it all comes down to respect for Trump:

“That shouldn’t be happening to this country. People are not respecting us. They are not respecting this country. And I hate to see it.”

Trump said earlier this year he will decide on a presidential run by June.

RealClearPolitics – Video – Sarah Palin Calls For Change In Haiti

The Sno’ Ho’ states the obvious. The one place you can be assured of never seeing the Sno’ Ho’ or most of her cohorts is in any group trying to figure out how you solve those problems.

As to Franklin Graham, I think he just set the work his group is doing back.

Funny how the folks actually doing some good and busting their chops in Haiti, never seem to make the news. Sean Penn is an example.
Vodpod videos no longer available.

Sno Ho to Visit Haiti?

In quite possibly one of the stupidest moves since the Jackass movie, the Sno’ Ho’ is travelling with Franklin Graham to Haiti this weekend for some photo ops with the “natives”. The Sno’ Ho’ playing tourist.

Hope they drop her off in Cite Soleil…And leave her ass for 6 months.

Sarah Palin to Visit Haiti With Franklin Graham — Boosting Her Standing With Evangelicals?

Sarah Palin will travel to strife-torn Haiti this weekend with Franklin Graham, son of famed evangelist Billy Graham, on a mission that could burnish her standing on foreign policy and with evangelicals if she pursues a 2012 presidential run.

The trip to the island nation, still ravaged by the effects of last January’s earthquake and facing rising civil violence, will be part of a mission by Samaritan’s Purse, the Christian relief operation that the younger Graham heads.

The Associated Press reported that the duo will be visiting a cholera clinic, among other stops. Palin staffer Rebecca Mansour says the former Alaska governor’s husband, Todd, will join her and that daughter Bristol may come along, as well. Gunfire and barricades were reported Thursday in the capital city of Port-au-Prince, and the U.S. State Department reissued a travel warning to the country and recommended against non-essential travel.

Update –  U.S. issues travel warning for Haiti

The U.S. State Department advised against all non-essential travel for its citizens in Haiti, warning that embassy officials don’t have the capacity or the infrastructure needed to evacuate citizens in trouble.

“No one is immune from kidnapping, regardless of one’s occupation, nationality, race, gender or age,” the warning stressed.

The warning said that Haitian police believe gangs are targeting travelers who arrive in Haiti from the United States, accosting them shortly after they leave the airport.

The Sno’ Ho’s Fake Hunting Trip

What’s with these Republican politicians? First we have Dick Cheney shooting his hunting companion – taking a shot no real hunter would have ever even considered even drawing a bead on…

Now the Sno’ Ho’ killing a Caribou for political points. Actually after missing 4-5 shots – it’s more than likely somebody else shot the Caribou, and they edited it in. Even more suspicious is the fact that the Caribou didn’t spook and run away after having a gun go off next to it. I mean…If the game stands there, and lets you shoot at it all day like a paper target…

That’s target practice… Not hunting.

Seems the hunting crowd is miffed at the fact that the Sno’ Ho’ broke a few cardinal safety rules, and demonstrated an utter unfamiliarity with the skills, which she supposedly has been dong since she was a little kid.

What’s wrong with this picture?

1. A “Varmit Rifle” isn’t something you’d normally take to hunt game the size of a Caribou.

2. Either the rifle isn’t “sighted in”, or the Sno’ Ho’ can’t shoot for beans. And yes, shooting uphill does cause the shooter to shoot high, although having the target silhouetted against the sky is the easiest target there is. Any real hunter makes sure their equipment is in good functioning order before the hunt – and that includes sighting in the rifle. Read the rest of this entry »

The Sno’ Ho’ Show Suffers Audience Drop

It appears that the Sno’ Ho’ Show on TLC, has a major audience drop down to it’s basic viewer demographic…

Horny white men over 60.

Sarah Palin's Alaska...Rooting for the Bear to Have White Meat for Dinner

 

Sarah Palin’s Alaska Ratings Plummet

It seems mostly old people are watching Sarah Palin’s Alaska. Ratings for the show’s second installment fell 40%, CBS News reports. While the premiere set a record for TLC with 5 million viewers, only 3 million came back for more. Of those, only 885,000 were in the advertiser-friendly 18-49 age bracket. The median age of viewers was 57, which is 15 years older than TLC’s average.

But TLC says it anticipated the drop, since the show was going up against the NFL’s Sunday night games and the American Music Awards. “We are very happy with the ongoing strength of Sarah Palin’s Alaska,” said a network spokesman, noting thatConan saw a similar drop off.
