THYME Magazine

Citizen Journalism with a Better Flavor

Volume I, Issue I

The 'Time' has Come

When professional journalists ignore important stories, such as the beliefs of 'Green Jobs Czar' Van Jones, someone has to step up to the plate. When major media outlets such as the Washington Post push 'their' man in the Virginia Governor's race, we think 'THYME's' time has come. Please enjoy the first issue.

A 'Blessing for the Czar'

"May the Lord bless... and keep the Czar... far away from us!" -- Rebbe in 'Fiddler on the Roof'

Seeing some of the 'qualifications' of some of the President's men, one is tempted to claim that blessing for oneself. Consider Cass Sunstien, University of Chicago law professor and Obama Czar appointee. Sunstien is a big-time animal rights advocate. He believes animals should have the right to legal representation. Talk about clogging up the courts with frivolous lawsuits! My dog Lucy could keep him busy for a year. Sunstien believes hunting should be banned.

Now it shouldn't be surprising that Obama is giving a place at the table to the far left, but he 'promised' to reach out to the half of the country that didn't vote for him. Mr. President, what does fulfilling that promise actually LOOK like?

Virginia Governor's Race: 'Debate Thyself?'

You've got to hand it to Creigh Deeds for creativity. This is the first time I've EVER heard of a candidate wanting to debate HIMSELF! Considering statements that Deeds has already made that he 'won't/will' raise certain taxes, his debate with himself could actually be interesting. Also, his folksy commercials trying to brand Bob McDonnell as the 'tax and spend' candidate qualify as 'high grade Kabuki.' But read on. Phil Cox reports:

With six weeks to go until Election Day, a lot hangs in the balance. While we always expected this race to tighten in the final weeks, we didn’t expect Creigh Deeds would sink to such incredible lows.

Deeds is now running blatantly false, negative attack ads with “facts” that have even been debunked by the Washington Post. The Lynchburg News & Advance called his recent ad on electricity rates “an outright lie” and the Virginian-Pilot trained its sights on another, editorializing that, “Deeds has deliberately concocted disingenuous and deceitful ads because he thinks voters are too stupid to know better.”

Creigh Deeds also made a last minute demand to NOT appear on stage with Bob McDonnell at a community candidate forum tomorrow at Virginia Union University. He insisted he appear alone instead.

Six weeks is not much time, but unfortunately, it’s plenty of time for Deeds to continue to engage in tactics to mislead voters.

Bad Timing?

The President's announcement that we will NOT be providing a missle shield to Poland and Czechoslovakia coming on the eve of the anniversary of the Soviet occupation of Poland? What kind of statement is that?

Liberals to Boycott South Carolina, Let's Go There!

Yes, they're upset at Joe Wilson and talking about boycotting the state's tourist industry. Just imagine!... those beautiful beaches and mountains... and none of those 'Obama' stickers. Pack up the SUV and plan your South Carolina Vacation now.
