TheWeekholeView: November 28 through December 4, 2012

Here each hole starts on Wednesdays and this is what fell through this past week: Last Wednesday, November 28, 2012, another movie I will skip was freely criticized on the web, J.R.R. Tolkien’s “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.”

On Thursday, November 29, 2012, Goldman Sachs CEO “Big Balls” Lloyd Blankfein shared his opinions with CNN’s Wolf Blitzer, and said said he’d be open to moving the top marginal tax rate for families making above $250,000 a year from 35% back to its Clinton-era level of 39.6%. Who keeps asking this asshole for his opinions? CNN! On other news the US ambassador to the UN, the other Ms Rice, rebuked the UN’s decision to recognize the State of Palestine. ThePotholeView finds it unnecessary bullying.

On Friday, November 30, Sen. Bernie Sanders, an independent from Vermont whos balls are bigger than any other sitting senator, derided Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfein, along with other Wall Street leaders, for pushing for cuts to entitlement programs as a part of the nation’s budget negotiations. Thank you, Bernie!

On Saturday, December 1, if you like soccer you cheered as London’s Galaxy defended MLS title in Beckham’s final game with 3-1 win over Houston. I have no idea what I just wrote.

On Sunday, December 2, the world famous Bibi announced that Israel has rejected the borders of a future Palestinian state the U.N. endorsed and it would press ahead plans to build thousands of settler homes. Israel also announced it will withhold more than $100 million in taxes and other funds collected on their behalf. When asked why, Bibi raised his shoulders and combed his few pieces of hair from left to right.

On Monday, December 3, the prestigious publication for the higher education crowd, the Chronicle of Higher Education, published an interesting survey on black sexuality literature and noticed that black scholars do not find it worth talking about. Maybe there is nothing to talk about there.

On Tuesday, December 4, TPV encourages its readers to sign up the MoveOn.org petition in support of raising the fast food workers’ salary to $15 per hour.
