Are We There Yet? By Deirdre Imus - The saying goes that with little kids you take trips, not vacations. A vacation is relaxing; a getaway involving children is usually anything but. Taking a trip therefore requires acknowledging that it’s no longer about what the adults want to do (occupy a lounge chair on a beach for three days straight, stroll through a museum, window-shop in Paris), but must include activities geared toward youngsters.  Read more...

 Celebrating 15 Years Protecting Children's Health & the Environment

 The Deirdre Imus Environmental Health Center®  - When you are among the first voices to speak out on an issue, it’s difficult to know if anyone is listening.

The Imus Ranch Foundation

With the closing of The Imus Ranch For Kids with Cancer, The Imus Ranch Foundation was formed to donate 100% of all donations previously devoted to The Imus Ranch for Kids with Cancer to various other charities whose work and missions compliment those of the ranch. The initial donation from The Imus Ranch Foundation was awarded to Tackle Kids Cancer, a program of The HackensackUMC Foundation and the New York Giants.  In addition, once the Imus Ranch for Kids with Cancer is sold, 100% of those funds will be contributed to The Imus Ranch Foundation.

    Monica Crowley Gives Imus Wardrobe Advice; Also Believes Obama is a Socialist

    Monica Crowley recently became engaged to her longtime boyfriend, an event Imus attributed not to love, but to the fact that his guest looks better than ever. “You know how long it takes to fall in love?” Imus asked her. “A fifth of a second.”
     
    Which is probably about how long it took Crowley, a nationally syndicated radio talk show host and Fox News contributor, to decide she didn’t like President Obama’s State of the Union address on Tuesday night.
     
    “After that speech, if anybody was left wondering what Barack Obama really is, there’s no mystery about it anymore,” she said. “This is a big government, big spending, radical program. There has been no change of ideological heart on the part of Barack Obama.”
     
    Recent predictions by the Congressional Budget Office that unemployment won’t be down around five percent until 2016 were indicative, in Crowley’s view, of the economy’s continuing structural problems.
     
    “What government can do is create an environment where you can have job creation by lowering the tax burden, lowering the regulatory burden on small businesses, and medium and big businesses,” she said. “And what we’ve had from this administration, and frankly from this Democratic congress until just recently, is the exact opposite. We’ve had a repressive kind of regime that has stunted job creation, and stunted job growth.”
     
    Though Imus thought Republicans had claimed extending the Bush tax cuts would create more jobs, which it has not, Crowley said, “You are incorrect, sir.” The Republicans’ argument, rather, had been that allowing tax rates to go up for everybody would make a bad situation even worse. “If you want real job creation, you actually have to cut taxes, not just keep it status quo,” she added.
     
    Then Lou disappeared for a hot minute, Imus had to wait to play a Todd Snider song for his guest, then admitted he had no idea why he even brought up Snider in the first place. Crowley, however, was more concerned with the I-Man’s black-on-black wardrobe choice, commenting that she felt like she was sitting next to the grim reaper.
     
    “I feel like you’re about to break into ‘Folsom Prison Blues’ at any second,” she said.
     
    Like Stuart Varney before her, Crowley firmly believes Obama is a socialist; not in the sense that, as Imus put it, “we all wear uniforms and make the same amount of money,” but in that he believes in taking from one to give to another.
     
    “It’s about equalizing everybody, and giving everybody an equal share of poverty,” she said. “That’s what Obamacare was all about. Health care reform was never about health care. It was about government power and government control.”
     
    Then, Crowley lost control of the point she was trying to make about Sarah Palin’s response to the State of the Union, because Imus was distracted by a reference to Newt Gingrich. “Remember when he was trying to hound Bill Clinton out of office, and he was having an affair, cheating on his own wife?” Imus said, and was quickly jumped on by Bernard, who explained that Gingrich had been investigating Clinton’s perjury and obstruction of justice, not his affair.
     
    “We are re-litigating 1997,” Crowley, frustrated, pointed out. “We are right on the edge on the ‘Imus in the Morning’ program!”
     
    We’re definitely on the edge of something.
