Information contained within the following blog posting, has been determined to be inaccurate. Please see the following retraction for all the details, an explanation for why I didn’t just delete this entry, and my sincere apology to all involved:
Well, I just got done watching tonight’s debates. I found it interesting when Joe Biden mentioned the name of an ordinary American who he apparently had a conversation with at a gas pump, about the economy, and about the cost of that gas!
Sen. Biden said the name of this “average American” is Joey Stanko. Some on a popular Conservative message board jokingly said, “I’ll bet he made that name up”.
Now out of pure curiosity, I decided to do a quick google search, and lo and behold, “Joey Stanko” aka Joseph Stanko, Jr. is a LOBBYIST, in Washington working for Hunton & Williams!
His profile available here:
states the following:
Joseph Stanko, Jr.
Practice focuses on issue advocacy before Congress, White House and other Executive Branch officials in the areas of global climate change, renewable and bio-fuels, the Clean Air Act and other environmental laws, energy policy and Homeland Security. Also provides strategic planning for corporations developing environmental mission statements or undertaking long-term business planning.
So the question now becomes… Did Biden have an astounding coincidence happen where the name of the “average American” he spoke to at the pump just happened to have the same name as a Washington Lobbyist pushing these exact issues? Or, did Biden, in his attempt to one-up Palin and her anecdotal stories about people she has spoken to on the campaign trail simply make something up?
I truly believe there are no coincidences, and what would be the statistical chances that Joe would happen to run into “some guy” at a gas pump, speak about energy issues, and what are the chances that that “average American” would share the SAME NAME as a man who Biden is undoubtedly familiar with through his lobbying activities in Washington. Again, there are no coincidences, and I believe the statistical chances are FIRMLY on my side when I say — Nice try Joe, but you’ve been BUSTED!

A small Northern Texas School District has voted to allow teachers to carry guns when classes resume later this month. If the plan goes through they will be the first in the nation to take this step to protect the defenseless children and adults in our public schools.

Alert parties with good eyes have identified two areas of an official photo released by Iran of their missile test, that appear to have been duplicated. The photo appears to have been altered. Please see the link below at Little Green Footballs for more information.
An Official Photo Released by the Iranian Government of
Missile Test May Have Been Photoshopped
Some readers may remember how common this ‘technique’ was during the Israel/Lebanon war a while back… During that time newspaper editors ran photos that were either staged, and/or photoshopped. There were a large numbers of these photos that came out during the war leaving one to theorize that perhaps the stringers the major news syndicates were receiving information and photos from were not ‘uninvolved’ parties. It seemed more like outright propaganda, IMHO…
