Bobby Kenneth Jindal

Via: Huffington Post

Hoping to avoid a struggle similar to that between President Obama and the so-called “birther movement,” Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal released his own birth certificate on Friday.

Jindal, who is of Indian heritage, publicly issued the document “knowing that his own status will certainly be examined in the event he ends up on a presidential ticket,” The Times-Picayune reports.

Born Piyush Jindal on June 10, 1971, the former congressman arrived in the U.S. in utero, his mother, Raj Jindal, three months pregnant and moving to Baton Rouge with a scholarship offer to study nuclear physics at Louisiana State University

‘Lure of Citizenship Spawns “Birth Tourism” in NYC’

Inside a 700-square foot room, there is a double bed, a flat-screen television with cable, and a little terrace that overlooks a quiet residential street. It could easily be a bed and breakfast, but it’s not.

It’s a suite inside a maternity center in Flushing, Queens called Cupid’s House -(a.k.a. ‘Anchor Baby House’) a center that caters to so-called birth tourists — women who travel to America to give birth and leave with their American babies.

“Many of them want American citizenship for their children,” said Anna, the owner of Cupid’s House. While she advertises on her website, USANYBABY.com, and in Chinese papers, she realizes how controversial her business has become.

‘Jindal’s Kenneth problem’

Bobby Jindal has a wunderkind resume: a Rhodes Scholar appointed assistant secretary of Health and Human Services at age 29, elected to the U.S. House at 33 and governor of Louisiana at 36.

Increasingly, though, he’s being likened to Kenneth, the dweeby page on “30 Rock.”

The politically devastating comparisons started popping right up after Jindal delivered the Republican response to President Barack Obama’s address a joint session of Congress. And they’ve spread like wildfire on the Internet.

“Close your eyes and think of Kenneth from ‘30 Rock.’ I can barely count the number of e-mails making that observation,” Andrew Sullivan wrote on his blog minutes after Jindal’s speech.

“Show photo (‘click’ red X above) as warning to others seeking America’s destruction.

No pussy-footing around, no politicking, no drama; it’s part of the mission”

He may be homeless, but he has Facebook

Via: Gizmodo

The homeless man I photographed has rigged up some speakers to a shopping cart, and seems to have some sort of lighting/solar panel rigged up atop of his cart. I’ve seen him around town a couple of times, and he’s always seems to be doing a laptop DJ routine (all techno music).

From a shabby, makeshift office, he ran a global terrorist empire. The world’s most wanted man watched newscasts of himself from a tiny television perched atop a rickety old desk cluttered with wires.

For years, the world only saw the 54-year-old Osama bin Laden in the rare propaganda videos that trickled out, the ones portraying him as a charismatic religious figure unfazed by being the target of a worldwide manhunt.

‘Wis. gov starts state worker recognition program’

After pushing to take away most of their collective bargaining rights, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker is now proposing a program to recognize the hard work and dedication of state employees.

Walker announced the creation of the State Employee Recognition Program on Monday. He says it will honor state workers who go the extra mile in their service.

Walker says he is starting the program to “highlight the most outstanding employees with public recognition.”

photoshopped?

No doubt, but it speaks to Walker’s hypocrisy.
