Happy New Year All! (HK2′s Open Thread)

From “Anderson Cooper: Psy surprise was weirdest NYE moment“:

The video above shows Anderson Cooper and Kathy Griffin celebrating New Years Eve at Times Square.

By the way, Larry Johnson recently reported about what the Democrats did in his post, “Fiscal Cliff Pork“:

Think the Democrats are worried about America? Think again. They are only thinking about themselves and feeding their clients at the pork barrel. Received the following from a friend who was privy to a briefing by some Democrat lobbyists in the last couple of days: … Read more of Larry Johnson‘s post here, “Fiscal Cliff Pork.”

The night after their 2013 New Year’s Eve show, Anderson Cooper and Kathy Griffin sit down to recap the best and most unexpected moments. …

“He was pushed on by some Psy PR team…I don’t think he knew where he was. I don’t think he knew who we were. I don’t think he realized he was on CNN,” says Anderson Cooper.

The Boston Globe reports:

Almost 24 hours after Congress careened off the fiscal cliff, a bipartisan House of Representatives late Tuesday approved a Senate bill reversing income tax increases and pulling the nation back from the potentially calamitous economic consequences. … blog

We trust that you’ve read or will read Larry Johnson‘s post, “Fiscal Cliff Pork.”

Now it’s your turn to share what you did on New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day.

It would be fun to read what you did on January 1 and 2nd. Another year has passed, and it’s hard to remember that it’s now 2013.

    this article makes some really good points and makes sense. One reason the ideas mentioned will never happen under the present government

  • TriciaX

    We had a party at our house, but everyone wanted to watch New York live (9 p.m. California time) instead of waiting up. WELL, we actually turned it off. Kathy Griffin was obnoxious, Anderson Cooper looked uncomfortable, and I couldn’t even watch the clip on this article!
    In the meantime, I hoe everyone has a great 2013 and that our government shapes up somehow.

    Don’t believe them when they tell you they don’t want to take your guns away. In fact, just to be safe, just don’t believe them. Period!

    VDH mentions EBT cards in this article. Last week I bought a dozen eggs. I pretty much buy the same things every week, so I don’t look at prices–except I know everything is more expensive. I also have noticed food items stamped with the “approved ebt seal,” but, again never looked at prices. Anyway, when I reached for my eggs, which were less than $2/dozen, I noticed next to them cartons marked with the ebt stamp. They were over $3/dozen. WTF? So, I’m paying for someone on the dole to get eggs I can’t afford for myself.

    Happy New Year!

    I am grateful for what I have—health, people in my life I care about and likewise,
    and professionally, doing something I still love. However, I thank God I’m not a young person. Socialism is on the move and there are no signs of it stopping.
    People are more dumb and aloof than ever, our media is just the propaganda arm
    for the Democratic party, and the makers of this country have been effectively
    demonized and possibly marginalized forever.

    Elections have consequences. 2012 was terrible for this nation and the next four years are going to suck as well. All of us will be paying for the last election, like it or not.

    Thank you NQ for all you do.

      Twilight Zone: So did I. I forgot just how good they were. Serling was able to do in just 30 minutes what shows like CSI can’t do in twice the time (nor any other show). And they did in black and white.It starts with a great ORIGINAL story and great acting.

    Well at least–at the very least:

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

    House votes to freeze congressional, federal worker pay, and to overturn Obama’s EO raising pay.

    Despite Democratic objections, the bill passed 287 to 129, with 55 Democrats voting with Republicans to approve the measure.

    Gun Owner-Outing Newspaper Hires Armed Guards

    The Journal News of West Nyack, New York doesn’t want fellow New Yorkers to be allowed to own guns, and what better way to show support for its stand against guns than to hire armed guards to patrol its offices?

    The suburban Westchester Journal News made itself the center of a controversy by publishing the names and addresses of thousands of New York’s legal gun owners in an interactive map on its website. It was accompanied by an article supportive of “a raft of new gun laws” at the state and federal level.

    In response to the paper’s article, several bloggers decided to create an interactive map of employees of the Journal News.

    The paper then moved to up the ante and announced it would publish even more names and addresses of New York’s law-abiding firearm owners.

    In the meantime, however, it appears that the Journal News has decided to hire armed guards to protect its offices.

    The Rockland County Times reported Tuesday that the Journal News had hired RGA Investigations, a private security company, to patrol its offices.

    These guards “are armed and will be on site during business hours through at least January 2, 2013,” Rockland Times reports.

    What a bunch of hypocrites!

    • Hokma

      Well they need to put themselves on their own list. Seems reasonable. Left wing idiots are hypocrites.

    • Hokma

      Every day that goes by I become more convinced that to be a liberal means you have to either live some false reality or be a complete moron.

      This on the Journal News publishing locations of gun owners in their region in New York.

      American Thinker published responses from some of these people.

      There was a retired police officer who is now worried that people who he arrested will come gunning for him.

      But the best was this:

      “Another interesting point is that the Journal News in the article put an editor’s note: “Journal News reporter Dwight R. Worley (the article’s author) owns a Smith & Wesson 686 Magnum and has a residence permit in New York City for that weapon since February 2011.” Of course, they did not state how he was able to get a permit, since it is very difficult to be granted one, and why he did not out himself on the map or in the editor’s note.”

        If only they did. In the Senate I am most disappointed in Johnson,Toomey and Coburn.

        I the House, Ryan. I really thought he was different. My bad.
        As for Boehner? Can’t say bad enough. Even Pelousey would bring up a bill if more than 1/2 her caucus would vote against it. Boehner seems to have confused “moderate” with “weak.”

          In this year, 2013, both Groundhog Day and the State of the Union

          address will occur on the same day.

          This is an ironic juxtaposition of events. One involves a meaningless ritual

          in which we look to an insignificant creature of little intelligence for

          prognostication.

          The other involves a groundhog.

          • KenoshaMarge

            That is interesting and true.
            We also should have known that obama would win the election since 2013 is the year of the snake. It explains a lot.
