REPUBLICAN =                      DEMOCRAT =

Why hasn't the main stream media reported better than 80% of the national debt comes from republican presidents?

WHY DON'T THEY DO THEIR JOBS?  The main stream media is confusing not bringing clarity to the Deb Ceiling Fiasco.


love of greed and contempt for the weak

I doubt that when Paul Ryan decided to publicly share his lust for Ayn Rand, he would imagined it would be so embaeassing that he ould have to speed-walk to his SUV to avoid a young Catholic trying to give him a Bible and telling him to pay more attention to the Gospel of Luke. Yet it happened Friday morning in downtown Washington after Ryan spoke to a sparse crowd at the Ralph Reed Faith & Freedom Conference.  CHECK IT OUT, when he LIES he looks up not at the camera most professional law enforcementt people will tell you this guy is a liar! Rep. Paul Ryan spoke this morning at the Faith and Freedom Coalition Conference; afterwards James Salt of Catholics United caught up with the Congressman to offer him a Bible on behalf of Faithful America, which is running a campaign encouraging Ryan to put down Ayn Rand and pick up the Bible.  He ran away as if a vampire from Holy Water. 
 
Ayn Rand GETS credit for starting a selfish Libertarian movement that is a total rejection of god and most religious notions of morality,.  Think about it, just what major religion PROMOTES selfishness the way she did. It is her followers who are the hypocrites, by claiming you can be selfish and Christian both.

A week or so ago, Boss Hog dropped out.  Now, its Huckleberry Hound & Super Racist Donald Trump announcing they are out of the GOP running.

First Boss Hog said he had no fire in his stomach and now Lonesome Huck says the factors say yes, but my heart says NO, and the Donald is pulling a patented Palin move? Good we can't afford this foolish man wasting time. 

Hey wait a minute, on second thought, I sort of wish the man wearing a forest animal for hair would run and waste millions of his own money.  Some of the better jokes are already gone... but alas, we still have man on dog, the serial quitter from Wasilla and the Tea Bagging Cheerleader along with the Newt.  There's still much to laugh about.


Did you know that it is Un American to ask an industry that made 34 billion in the first quarter of this year to forego part of their corporate welfare/subsidy ($21 billion in oil industry subsidies) when these same companies have said they don't need it when oil was 50.00 a barrel, now that it is over 100.00 they desperately need it?  What's wrong with this picture?  And of course, the RepubliTHUGS are on the side of big oil.

The top 5 Oil Producers showed up and testified before Congress... and none of them had a believable answer for why they should stll be getting the subsidies.  The greedy bastards flew in on their private jets and demanded that they keep getting these monies.  That's right, screw the poor, the middle class and the environment, big oild needs your money.  The most profitable industry in the history of mankind needs your money, so get out your wallets.

Big Oil gives big money to senators, and that cash buys a lot of friends on Capitol Hill.  But, if enough of us protest and tell our elected officials, we may get them to what is right for America, and not be held hostage by the Republicans and Big Oil.  Contact your representatives and Senator/s... tell them the corporate welfare for the Oil Industry must end, and instead put that money toward reducing our deficit.  In other words legislate in the direction of the 98% and not the richest 2% of Americans.


Osama Bin Laden is DEAD... HALLELUJAH!

“So how many times did Bush promise this.... 1000? Finally... and I'm glad its on Obama's watch.” So after promises of eight long years by the worst president in US history the Democrat  Barrack Obama cleans up Bush's mess.   Hopefully this will help us get out of Iraq and Afghanistan eventually and may well enhance the Democrats credibility on National Security. Proving without a doubt, Democrats can be trusted and we did it in a quarter of the time given to Bush's failed attempts. 

Numb Nuts - the worst president ever - GWB
This Bozo promised for eight years his administration would get him, "Dead or Alive."

And predictably the Yo Yo's on the right are trying to spin the good news of Bin Laden's death into a fantasy that somehow George W Bush deserves much or some of the credit...?  Yeah right, the same moron who said:  I don't know where bin Laden is. I have no idea and really don't care. It's not that important. It's not our priority."- G.W. Bush, 3/13/02 - or how about this gem?  "I am truly not that concerned about him." - G.W. Bush, responding to a question about bin Laden's whereabouts, 3/13/02 (The New American, 4/8/02).

BUSH GOT BIN LADEN?



We all knew the scumbag lying machine that is the GOP would do their best to sell the fantasy that GWB, or Saint Ronnie deserve the credit for killing Bin Laden.


Pure Bile

Thank God not too many are buying that bullshit, but now its the Donald's turn to sell the sheep!  CHECK HIM OUT  Whoops he has been in free fall for the last 2.5 weeks or so.  His polling numbers continue to decline.  His approval DOWN, his disapproval way UP.   So, is it over..? God, I hope so for the sake of this country. Racist blowhards wearing forest animals for hair have no business running this country!


Donald Trump, a man full of bile, and everything else disgusting you might think of wants to be our president, or is it a publicity stunt and just one more huge lie from the blowhard from the East Coast.?

MSNBC's Lawerence O'Donnell has more than had it with the race baiting and LIES of the Donald.  Yesterday he said this, "NBC has created a monster and it is called Donald Trump," O'Donnell said in a blistering 15-minute rant on Wednesday's edition of his show, "The Last Word," which airs on MSNBC, a sister network of NBC.

"NBC can no longer stand idly by, not for one more day," he said.

If a deal is in place for another "Apprentice" season, Trump's attention-grabbing flirtation with a presidential bid is nothing more than a publicity stunt, O'Donnell declared.

"If Donald Trump has committed to do ('Celebrity Apprentice'), he is obviously not running for president," O'Donnell said, "and all of this, every bit of it, is as fake as Donald's reality show."

NBC, which will formally announce its 2011-12 season schedule on May 16, must already know if more "Celebrity Apprentice" is in the cards, O'Donnell said. He insisted that NBC settle the question right away and avoid being part of what he called Trump's "campaign to legitimize hatred and racism."


If you agree with O'Donnell, and you really want to shake things up at NBC, call them and tell them you agree with Lawerence O'Donnell and that they should come clean about Trump and NBC's plans.  Of course they won't respond.  Cowards never do.  Call these dickwads at:

Who do the RepubliTHUGS actually represent?  It's definitely NOT you, unless you are worth millions, or even BILLIONS, are in the top 2% of wealth earners, are a giant corporation, big Oil, or a defense contractor.  They do love themselves some oil contributions.  Those contributions to GOP coffers is aided and abetted by the in tax credits and subsidies given the Exxon/Mobil, Shell Oil, Conoco Phillips, etc.  Where are your in tax credits and subsidies?  If they get their way, you will pay for these corporate welfare giveaways.

Seriously, as Americans continue to struggle with outrageous, unstable gas prices, big oil companies continue to benefit from them. Get this if you can wrap your mind around these ungodly figures:  Exxon Mobil announced Thursday a first-quarter profit of $10.6 billion — a 69% increase from last year, and a number so astronomical, Exxon executives felt the need to issue defensive statements in advance.1 Also unveiling massive earnings were Shell ($6.3 billion, up 30%), ConocoPhillips ($3 billion, up 44%), and of course, BP (7.1 Billion, up 16%). In all, the five largest oil companies have reaped nearly $1 trillion in profits in the last 10 years.

Back in March of this year, these Republican yahoos pleaded poverty and sought staggering budget cuts elsewhere (ok, well to entitlements, in other words, cuts for the poor, middleclass, handicapped, or seniors) — and of course, they voted unanimously against repealing these oil subsidies, at a total cost to us of $45 billion over 10 years.   And they say hell NO to taxing the rich to pay for anything, but the poor and middleclass, now that's different.

And these guys need your money?  They need corporate welfare at your expense?  Now you know who they represent... and it is NOT You!

 


How Do The RepubliTHUGS Convince So Many That They Too Some Day Will Be Among The 2 Percent Also?  Its the Lotto Nation Mindset.  Countdown returns on 6/20/11.. current tv

 
 


Texas is burning (so far over a million acres has burnt) and NO, it's not from a cinder blown of a burning cross, nor is it from a spark form some electrocution, it's just that there's been little, or no rain for an extended time... and NO, don't tell them it's global warming, or climate change, they won't hear of that either.

Texas Forest Service spokeswoman April Saginor: "We're actually seeing Texas burn from border to border. We've got it in west Texas, in east Texas, in north Texas, in south Texas -- it's all over the state. We've got one in the Dallas area that's four fires that have actually merged together."  Interesting and quite sad huh?

So now, where is all the talk of seceding Governor "Blowhard" Perry?  It wasn’t all that long ago you were mouthing off and acting all John Wayne… now, NOW you want help from the FEDS?  Maybe now even you might see the need for a Federal Government role?

What a pathetic leader you are Sir Rick of perfect hair.

Thoughtful, sober thinking Texans ought to recall you, because too many Texans don't think before they vote.

 


Here it is... more RepubliTHUGS lying:  "that reducing tax rates has always produced higher federal revenues."  Only in Conservative bizarro world would this be true.

Rep. Joe Walsh told the host of ABC's This Week, "that reducing tax rates has always produced higher federal revenues" while the ass wipe was making the case for keeping taxes low as a way of reducing the federal deficit.  It is an outright LIE.  It is absolutely FALSE and the legislative dipstick knew it when he said it. 

Pulitzer Prize-winning fact-checker PolitiFact took this latest Republican lie apart almost immediately, yet several other lying bastard Republicans have kept repeating the lie over and over and the main stream media let's them get away with it.  Why?  Why does ABS, CBS, NBC, CNN and MSNBC not call them out on it on the spot... right as these blowhards say it? So anytime you se these 3 words;
"GOP claim that..." Anything following those three words is going to be false. Anything.

They must be afraid of the corporate backlash... that is the only explanation I have for them being so cowardly.


 

Just how big a liar is Wisconsin's soon to be recalled Governor?

Well let's see. The man was ramping up his public relations campaign trying find an effective means to to counter a fast growing protest movement.  His grand idea was to Bullshit about emails he was receiving that he claimed was much in favor of his union busting agenda. Yes, the lying SOB said his email overwhelmingly urged him to eliminate nearly all union rights for state workers. Then saying that really seemed like a solid strategy... a good bet... right?  Seriously, who would have thought someone would sue his royal majesty to actually peruse the email?  Emails To Governor Scott "Big Time Liar" Walker Favored Union Rights 2-To-1, which is NOT what he claimed!

Now that he has had to give into an email review, an Associated Press analysis of the emails shows that, for close to a week, messages in Walker's inbox were running roughly 2-to-1 against his plans. Ironically, the tide did not turn in his favor until shortly after desperate Democrats fled the state to stop a vote they knew they would lose. The crooked Governor manipulated the emails... by selectively using 8000 he received in one day (8000 most likely orchestrated by the GOP and KOCH sucking Brothers for maximum affect on the evening of Feb. 17) and by not mentioning the overwhelming emails against his proposal for union busting which is simply "Standard Operating Procedure" for RepubliTHUGS.

You see, what the lying SOB didn't say is that for several preceding days, the emails Walker received in support had been vastly outnumbered by those opposed to reducing collective bargaining, or union busting.  And had it not been for the 25,000 protesting live at the capitol, there may have been another 25,000 emails telling this joke they disapproved of his
vicious assault on working men and women... but alas, they were busy doing it live in person instead!

Scott Walker, what a douche bag.  In the next year or so, someone new will be called Governor of Wisconsin... and that will be a good day for the middle class, labor and working men and women, not only in Wisconsin, but all over America?  We have the tens of thousands of Wisconsin protesters to thank... we appreciate your tireless efforts for all Americans... THANK YOU!


Did you see the latest claim, or boast from the Donald?  No doubt, he is one of the biggest douche bags around.

 Check this out.  Remember back in in 2009 when the dipshit with the bad hair piece rented a piece of property to Gadaffi so he could pitch a tent? 

Well Mr. EGO says, "I think I probably have more experience of anybody -- whether I sell them real estate for tremendous amounts of money. I mean, I've dealt with everybody," the billionaire real-estate mogul told Fox News Monday morning, touting his supposed foreign policy credentials. "And by the way, I can tell you something else. I dealt with Gaddafi. I rented him a piece of land. He paid me more for one night than the land was worth for two years, and then I didn't let him use the land."  "That's what we should be doing. I don't want to use the word 'screwed', but I screwed him," Trump continued. "That's what we should be doing."

The Donald, your hair piece looks like it was repeatedly screwed by  a porcupine and then used by Charlie Sheen to clean his geek glasses. Wow, what an ego.  He's so intent on trumpeting his so-called credentials the BOZO fails to understand he just revealed and more than highlighted his moral and ethical deficienci­es in dealing with clients. Oh yes, he's definitely a RepubliTHUG and could easily be their standard bearer!

The news out of Japan keeps on being similar to that of a roller coaster ride... up and down, good then bad... and just about the time you feel it's going to improve and stay improved, another explosion. The estimated death toll stemming from the Earthquake, Tsunami and Nuclear disaster is now estimated at over 18,000 lives.  Rebuilding could takes as many as FIVE years and the costs of doing so are estimated at 235 Billion.  And RepubliTHUGS like Coulter, Beck and Limbaugh have mocked the Japanese?  

Let us all pray for the people of Japan... they also need our financial support.  If you've got it to give, please do so... and hurry.  Time is of the essence.
 


Its All About the BUDGET... right?  WRONG!

Wisconsin is broke... right?  Well that is what Governor Walker claims as well as all of those RepubliTHUGS in their state senate have claimed.  So here's the $42,328 question... why then does the 26 year old girlfriend of a Republican state senator get a cushy state job and a 36% pay increase in these desperate times?  Oh my, how best can you describe Scott Walker and his band of loyal followers?  Can you say liars, cronyism and hypocrisy?

Randy Hopper - adulterer! screwing her way to the top?

A state worker with ties to Sen. Randy Hopper is being paid $11,000 more annually than her predecessor in a position at the department of regulation and licensing.  Wisconsin state officials say the woman, 26, was hired to a limited term, communications specialist position last month, with a salary equivalent to $42,328 annually.  She is being paid $20.35 per hour, because SHE gets him.

State officials Friday said the woman’s predecessor left the position in January, with a salary equivalent to $31,200 annually. No explanation was given for the new hire’s higher pay.  Maybe someone should ask the loud mouthed Republican senator just why his girlfriend is worth $11,000 more, or exactly what hidden talent she might posses to earn the extra money?  The lady in question is one Valerie Cass, who Randy Hopper's estranged wife recently identified as Hopper's new girlfriend.  "It is correct that my husband, Randy Hopper, started an affair in January 2010 with a then 25 year old Republican aide named Valerie Cass. The affair has caused great emotional pain for my children and me".

Even a Conservative Poll shows no support for what the RepubliTHUGS in Wisconsin are doing. I for one, believe they will pay the ultimate price.  The poll released this past weekend by a conservative Wisconsin think tank (WPRI) does more than just suggest they need to compromise.   It shows clear cut evidence that the enthusiasm gap favoring Republicans in Wisconsin in 2010 has vanished.  Of course, the elections are way off and as always respondents tend to overstate things in surveys.  Still,  the majority said they'd vote and the vast majority said they wouldn't vote Repuke. 

Maybe the fact that 400 of the richest Americans have more money than 150 million of working class Americans combined is a sign that has finally sunk in and has helped awareness for what the Republicans have done since their great Ron "Howdy Doody" Reagan was in office.

My how quickly the GOP has squandered their political treasure trove.  People are tired of hearing how they are fiscal stewards while watching them rob the treasury to give to their rich contributors and dole out Corporate Welfare all the while demanding that the working man pay for their sins.  People get ready, there's a revolution coming... the rich can only hope they have enough money to buy their way out of this one.  There are many more of us than you rich pricks!

Scott Walker and the other dickbird, Republithug, lying, scum have been calling the Wisconsin protestors slobs and claiming that they had done serious damage to the capitol building... in fact they even had a number...  the estimate was 7.5 million dollars.  Of course when they let that escape from their lying mouths... some one called them on it... Now guess what? The damage estimate has suddenly gone from 7.5 million all the way to .... duh... are you ready.... $0.00... that's ZERO.  Wow if these imbeciles are that good with numbers... they may have a budget surplus instead of a deficit even after the SOB gave 117 million to corporations that didn't need, nor deserve it. RepubliTHUGS do one thing well... LIE!

Rasmussen, yes their very own pollster has Walkers disapproval at 57%


The former security guard at New Life megachurch who heroically stopped a gunman at the Colorado Springs church in 2007 says she was asked to leave after announcing that she is gay. In December, 2009, a 24-year-old gunman named Matthew Murray opened fire on New Life's Colorado Springs facility, shooting four people and killing two. Jeanne Assam, then a 42-year-old volunteer security guard and ex-Minneapolis police officer, shot the gunman--who fatally shot himself soon afterward--as he entered the church. At the time, Assam--who said her strong faith was responsible for her swift and decisive action--was hailed as a hero.

Well, this is the NEW religious right, one of the top pegs in the new Republican party... so seriously, how else could one expect them to react? No doubt, they are all sanctimoni­ous, hypocrites­... and have no tolerance for anyone that doesn't think exactly the way they do.

But alas, someday soon, they will be overrun by the future of America... thank God.  Maybe she was too HOT for them to accept her being a lesbian?


Who did the KOCH Brothers, Karl Rove and  all the Billionaires with right wing tendencies, Corporate America, the Teabaggers, plain old Conservatives and naturally, the ignorant Rednecks put in charge of this country?  People like this BOZO:

Now that it's become a national news story and a bit embarrassing, Congress Neanderthal Paul Broun regrets and condemns violent town hall question.  As you know if you've read much at all on this site, I'm not a fan of President Milquetoast, but this... this is ludicrous, especially after Tucson.  And this idiot thinks of himself as a leader?????

The Southern Congressman confirmed that he received this question at a town hall on Tuesday: "Who's going to shoot Obama?" After an alleged chuckle or two, the Athens Banner-Herald reported Broun responded to the question this way: "The thing is, I know there’s a lot of frustration with this president. We’re going to have an election next year. Hopefully, we’ll elect somebody that’s going to be a conservative, limited-government president that will take a smaller, who will sign a bill to repeal and replace Obamacare."

What was this retard's excuse? Broun's spokeswoman told the Georgia newspaper: “Obviously, the question was inappropriate, so Congressman Broun moved on.”  Fortunately, a few in the media haven't moved on... and are still pointing out the hypocrisy, hate and poor judgment from jerks like this fool.



Barrack Obama, the ultimate "Bullshitter in Chief".  In 2007 on the campaign trail, this man said this:

 

Now that he's gotten your vote, won the presidency and is securely in office, he's practically silent on workers right and almost all the progressive agenda items!  Where is the candidate of change?  What happened to the champion of the middle class?  Consider this, Shep Smith with FOX has come out and criticized the union busting tactics (both stronger and more often) by RepubliTHUGS than our president.  W.T.F? 

A FOX News Anchor has shown more empathy for wage earners than the American President?  Obama you don't deserve a second term and I for one wish you'd never been elected in the first place.  Hillary has bigger gonads and would not have forsaken the middle class as you have.  You are a Democratic embarrassment.  Oh yes, and I have audited the time I wasted working for your campaign... you owe me 316 hours for my hard work and wasted time getting you into the White House (and that doesn't take into account all of the social networking, posting etc.).


Wow, Shep Smith from Faux News is even convinced that the Wisconsin spectacle is NOT about balancing the budget, it is in fact about busting the union.  "Fox's Studio B," Shepard Smith said the battle over union rights in Wisconsin was all about busting unions and securing Republican political power, not about the state's budget deficit. 

Smith said the fight was "100 percent politics."

"There is no budget crisis in Wisconsin," he said, adding that the unions "[have] given concessions." The real point of the fight, Smith said, could be found in the list of the top ten donors to political campaigns. Seven out of the ten donated to Republicans; the other three were unions donating to Democrats.

"Bust the unions, and it's over," Smith said. He then brought up the Koch brothers, the billionaires who have bankrolled much of the anti-union pushback in Wisconsin. The fight, Smith said, "started" with the Kochs, who he said were trying to get a return on the money they donated to Walker's campaign.

"I'm not taking a side on this, I'm just telling you what's going on...to pretend this is about a fiscal crisis in the state of Wisconsin is malarkey," Smith said.


 

A delicious prank call may actually be proof positive of Governor Walkers real intentions in Wisconsin.  The Buffalo Beast newspaper founded by onetime editor Matt Taibbi, typically best known for its annual list of "The 50 Most Loathsome Americans" -- has recordings of a phone call between Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker and current editor Ian Murphy. Walker himself has said it is real and it reveals everything we suspected about this manufactured crisis hell bent on union busting.  He pretty much proved all we had suspected... he is being led around by his little KOCH and testicles... and by the Corporate Elite... you know, A$$ (David) and Wipe (Charles) KOCH.  KOCH Industries are the ones holding his leash. Now if only our impotent mainstream media would do their jobs and expose these people for what and who they really are.... big money buying government in order to screw the little people.

Part 1:   

 


Part 2

This may or may not prove that Walker is violating any laws... just yet, but it does prove he has no moral compass and is easily led and ruled by the wealthy elite.  Walker is simply a KOCHsucker, or KOCHaddict!


Newt Gingrich... Do as I say, not as I do...

 

Isn't it funny, he didn't have a problem DISCUSSING the Clinton affair before during an after the impeachmen­t process, now did he? Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich was confronted Tuesday night by a college student asking about his extramarital affair during the 1990s.

She asked, "You adamantly oppose gay rights... but you've also been married three times and admitted to having an affair with your current wife while you were still married to your second," Isabel Friedman, president of the Penn Democrats, asked Gingrich after a speech at the University of Pennsylvania, according to Politico. "As a successful politician who's considering running for president, who would set the bar for moral conduct and be the voice of the American people, how do you reconcile this hypocritical interpretation of the religious values that you so vigorously defend?"

Gingrich said, "I'll bet almost everybody here can gather the thrust of your question," he said. "I appreciate the delicacy and generosity in the way it was framed.... I hope you feel better about yourself."  "I've had a life which, on occasion, has had problems," Gingrich said. "I believe in a forgiving God, and the American people will have to decide whether that their primary concern. If the primary concern of the American people is my past, my candidacy would be irrelevant. If the primary concern of the American people is the future... that's a debate I'll be happy to have with your candidate or any other candidate if I decide to run."

Apparently like all RepubliTHUGS, he thinks he is above anyone asking him these types of questions.­.. but Democrats, now that's another story.
 


  Wisconsin Governor Walker first off creates his own budget crisis by giving tax cuts to the rich and then tries to make public employees pay for his generosity to his friends.  Greed is Good... on Wall Street, in the House and Senate, but NOT if you're Teaching My Kids, or fighting crime, or fighting fires and make it so I can't spread the wealth back to my super rich friends.  Seriously Governor, you think its OK to try and balance a fabricated deficit on the backs of the working class while giving the rich unnecessary tax breaks?  This has nothing to do with closing a budget gap and everyone sees through the bullshit.  His and the RepubliTHUGS shared goal is to bust Wisconsin and any other state's unions.  This SOB has drawn a line in the sand and truly began a class war... middle and lower income working people against the RepubliTHUGS and their constituency the rich and Corporate America.  Apparently  Robert Reich got it right when he wrote, "The Republican strategy is to split the vast middle and working class - pitting unionized workers against non-unionized, public-sector workers against non-public, older workers within sight of Medicare and Social Security against younger workers who don't believe these programs will be there for them, and the poor against the working middle class."  And just who put this liar and Tea Baggers like him in charge?  Who aided and abetted the radical Wisconsin Governor's destructive Republican policies and OUTRAGEOUS attempt to bust the unions in Wisconsin?  Well of course the conservative zealots at KOCH Industries... the Conservative Taliban!


Meet Ass and Wipe... the Koch Brothers... (they make bathroom tissue, don't they?) who are about to get their CORPORATE welfare check from Wisconsin's Governor.

KOCH INDUSTRIES is doing it's best to USURP AMERICAN DEMOCRACY state by state, tea party by tea party.  Please boycott these products owned by the brothers KOCH:  PAPER PRODUCTS made by GEORGIA PACIFIC - Vanity Fair, Quilted Northern, Angel Soft, Sparkle, Brawney, Mardi Gras and Dixie.

While most of the attention by national media has been on the collective bargaining and union busting aspects a less noticed provision that would allow the state to sell or contract out any state-owned energy asset in no-bid deals with private corporations. 16.896 Sale or contractual operation of state−owned heating, cooling, and power plants. (1) Notwithstanding ss. 13.48 (14) (am) and 16.705 (1), the department may sell any state−owned heating, cooling, and power plant or may contract with a private entity for the operation of any such plant, with or without solicitation of bids, for any amount that the department determines to be in the best interest of the state. Notwithstanding ss. 196.49 and 196.80, no approval or certification of the public service commission is necessary for a public utility to purchase, or contract for the operation of, such a plant, and any such purchase is considered to be in the public interest and to comply with the criteria for certification of a project under s. 196.49 (3) (b).

It's unclear what "the best interest of the state" is. What is clear though KOCH Industries could be in line for a sweet enough deal.  Indeed, one of the companies that could stand to benefit significantly is Koch Industries. Koch already has several companies in the state, including a coal subsidiary, timber plants and a large network of pipelines.  Now get this, during the 2010 election cycle, Walker received $43,000 from the Koch Industries PAC, his second-largest contribution. The PAC also gave significantly to the Republican Governors Association, which in turn helped out Walker considerably in his race. Koch also contributed $6,500 to support 16 Republican legislative candidates in the state.

The Koch-funded group Americans for Prosperity has also been standing with Walker throughout his budget battles, busing in Tea Party activists and launching the site, Stand With Walker. After the election, Walker and other Republican governors received guidance from the American Legislative Exchange Council, a group that is also funded by Koch dollars and has pushed anti-union measures.

 

Hey they started it... we should be the ones to finish the Class War... and this is inspirational viewing... check it out!


Now that the RepubliTHUGS are in charge... what does that mean for budget cuts? If you don't have much money, the GOP is after you. Seriously, so far, they are not cutting their own salaries, but look out domestic agencies. They are after you.

Republicans now running the House are barely touching Congress' generous own budget even as they take a cleaver to many domestic agencies.  A new GOP proposal would reduce domestic agencies' spending by 9 percent on average through September, when the current budget year ends.

If that plan becomes law, it could lead to layoffs of tens of thousands of federal employees, big cuts to heating and housing subsidies for the poor, reduced grants to schools and law enforcement agencies, and a major hit to the Internal Revenue Service's budget.  Congress, on the other hand, would get nicked by only 2 percent, or $94 million.  Under the GOP, the rich get richer and screw the middle and lower class. 

One thing you can say about the RepubliTHUGS is their priorities never change.  They always look out for themselves and Corporate America.


Here's a darn good QUESTION. Did Supreme Court justices ‘participate in political strategy sessions’ before the infamous Citizens United was decided? Common Cause, a progressive group has asked the Department of Justice to look into "conflicts of interest" two justices may have had when issuing the ruling.  The two Supremes are Anthony Scalia and Clarence Thomas

Discovered by the group ThinkProgress was information that Koch Industries hosted events that Scalia and Thomas may have attended and if true, Koch Industries, a corporation run by two conservative activists may have directly benefited from the Citizens United ruling.  Wow, imagine that... if Scalia, or Thomas attended any of these gathering between 2008 and 2010, the time frame the Supremes were dealing with Citizens United, then they should have recused themselves... and of course they didn't, because after all they are Repukes and rules don't apply to them...
don't believe me?  Just ask the Koch brothers.  Hell they know everything.

 

Unlike the other side that have used this senseless tragedy to fund raise, our side has treated it with the sensitivity it deserves.  Here's what my congress critter sent me:

 

Martin Heinrich for Congress

 

Dear Friends:

An unimaginable tragedy occurred in Tucson, Arizona, this past Saturday when my friend and congressional colleague, Gabby Giffords, was shot and critically wounded while hosting a “Congress on Your Corner” constituent outreach event.

Though Gabby remains in critical condition, six of her constituents, including a member of her staff, a U.S. district judge and an incredible nine-year-old who was born on September 11, 2001, were killed in this senseless act of violence. Julie and I send are sincerest condolences to the families of Gabe Zimmerman, Judge John M. Roll, Christina Taylor-Green, Dorothy Morris, Phyllis Schneck and Dorwan Stoddard.

Over the last couple of days, my office has experienced a very heartening outpouring of support for Gabby and the victims of Saturday’s assassination attempt, with many inquiring how they can help. Gabby’s husband, U.S. Navy Captain Mark Kelly, has asked for your prayers for Gabby, Gabe, John, Christina, Taylor, Dorothy, Phyllis, Dorwan and the 12 additional victims who were wounded on Saturday. For those who wish to do more, Captain Kelly has encouraged folks to consider two organizations that “Gabby has long valued and supported.” Those organizations are:


Community Food Bank
3003 S Country Club Rd # 221
Tucson, AZ 85713-4084
Phone:  (520) 622-0525

American Red Cross, Southern Arizona Chapter
2916 East Broadway Boulevard
Tucson, AZ 85716
Phone:  (520) 318-6740


Gabby Giffords is an incredible individual and an extraordinary member of Congress. She is a tireless fighter, which is something that should give us all great hope for her recovery.  This is a better country because Representative Giffords is among our elected leaders.

On behalf of both Julie and myself, thank you all for your concern for Gabby and all the victims of Saturday's tragic events, and thank you the concern you have expressed for our safety.

Sincerely,

 

Martin

 

Like most of you, I was shocked, confused, saddened and eventually very angry after hearing about this tragedy in our neighboring state.  And I had to wait days before I dared to write how I felt.  I knew I would have gone off the deep end if I wrote about this too soon.  Now that enough time has passed I can focus on the right things.  Although, I must say the "right" has refused any responsibility for inciting, inspiring this Looney Tunes' behavior.  Glenn Beck, Sarah Palin and Rush have all said, we had nothing to do with it... I disagree.  They used their bully pulpits to fan the flames of hatred and now they must accept their roles.  And, I guess that's about all I will say at this point in time. 

Pray for Gabby and the others please.
 

Strict Adherence to the CONSTITUTION is important to us, unless it gets in the way of our making money!  Are you paying attention to this Tea Partiers?

Two House Republicans have cast votes as members of the 112th Congress, but were not sworn in on Wednesday, a violation of the Constitution. Yes Virginia, the same Constitution which the GOP read aloud in the Capitol.  Who were these patriots of capitalism?  Well, they are incumbent Pete Sessions of Texas and freshman Mike Fitzpatrick from Pennsylvania's 8th district.  Both money hungry carpetbaggers missed the swearing in because they were at a fundraiser in the Capitol Visitors Center.  In their defense, they watched the swearing-in on television.  I'm not a greedy bastard, I just play one while working for the people in the 12th Congress.

"That wasn't planned. It just worked out that way," said Fitzpatrick at the time, according to local press on hand, which noted that he "happened to be introducing Texas Congressman Pete Sessions while glad-handing his supporters in the Capitol Visitor Center that he secured for them when the House swearing in began."  And by the way, House ethics rules forbid fundraising in the Capitol.  But these are Republicans and I guess the rules don't apply... to them?


Guess what?  The richest households in the US now have a net worth 225 times greater than the average US household.  And that is why there may be a class war, if there even is a class war Republicans and Tea Party types…

It seems to me and many other progressives, or liberals as if the RIGHT has an inside man.. uh huh, Obama.   He seems to not want to fight the class war... he has no stomach for it and as a result, this Democratic President is selling middle and lower income Americans out and our futures are sliding down the drain.   So much for the so-called Class War... the average American has no General fighting the charge.  Wow, Obama seems to have fooled a lot of us... huh?

C'mon, wake up and take a hard look at the… enormous imbalance.  I guess you presumptuous bastards on the right actually think you are worth 225 times more money than the average working man, or woman?
 


Cry Baby Repuke
Not only is John Boehner a pathological liar, he's also a SERIAL crier...

This orange tool is always "for sale", God knows he'll be the best Speaker money can buy!  Just ask the tobacco industry.  This drunken toad was proud to hand out big checks from big tobacco... and that is hardly even scratching the surface of this man's dubious past.  America, you bought the big one this time.
 


They're not even in total power yet, and still the smug is already thick in the air.   Quite refreshingly, the new chair of the House Financial Services Committee, nine-term Alabama Rep. Spencer Bachus said,

"In Washington, the view is that the banks are to be regulated, and my view is that Washington and the regulators are there to serve the banks."   Yes this dildo takes over next month.. and aren't we all secure in knowing he's guarding the hen house?  Oh my God, America what have you done?.


 

Even after getting caught with their grimy, filthy hands inside the cookie jar, Faux News denies... and denies.  In fact, their pompous ratings leader even had the nerve to attack Rachael.  Of course the better informed Maddow was polite, classy and direct with her response to the bully on the block Bill O'Reilly. I love it when she smiles ever so sweetly while destroying the likes of "Bill-O"... don't you?  Speaking of nitwit bullies... Why is clown Beck a national voice?  Buffoon Beck is dangerous because many don't recognize he’s only in it for money while feeding off celebrity but soon he'll go away crying and begging for relevance after he's been totally discovered as the fraud he is..


  Surprise, SURPRISE - the Right leaning Supreme Court once again as always sides with Big Business over the average American citizen.  The Supremes led by Roberts and Scalia prove once and for always they don't give a damn about justice, or the little people... its the American Corporations where they get their money and support that are their concern.  So be gone little people.  These wackjobs just keep tilting things in favor of America's Corporations... first they give the Corporations the ability to buy candidates and now this...?  The middle and lower class have no future if this crap keeps up.  The Republithugs are going to own us all if we don't wake up America!  Just look at the distribution of wealth:

Siding With Skilling, Justices Limit Law on 'Honest Services', or how  the bias of this Supreme Court is really showing!

The Supreme Court has sided with Jeffrey Skilling, the former Enron chief executive, in limiting the use of a federal fraud law that has been a favorite of white-collar crime prosecutors.

The court said Thursday that the "honest services" law could not be used in convicting Mr. Skilling for his role in the collapse of Enron. But Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg said in her majority opinion that the ruling does not necessarily require Mr. Skilling's conviction to be overturned.

The court in this ruling also sided with the former newspaper magnate Conrad Black, setting aside a federal appeals court decision that had upheld Mr. Black's honest services fraud conviction. But as in Mr. Skilling's case, the justices left the ultimate resolution of the case to the appeals court.

 


Oh wow, so who knew?  Apparently Obama really does have a pair.  Of course they aren't as big as Hillary's, but allowing General Stanley McChrystal-Meth to resign proves Obama actually has balls.  Congrats Mr. President.  Good riddance General!  Your sorry ass should have been gone after the Pat Tillman cover up and subsequent scandal was proven to be placed squarely on your lying shoulders, or maybe with the detainee scandal you participated in.  Hell, either one should have brought you down.   You are a disgrace in oh so many ways.

dumb ass Texan... oil apologist...

After all the blowback, the "15 watt mentality of " Rep. Joe Barton (R-Tex) does it again... he actually put a piece on his web site titled, "Joe Barton was right." Naturally writtten by some Rightwing Hack from the American Spectator, or some such rag.


Of course the chickenshit took it down after about 5 minutes... but stll... what was this imbecile thinking?

Who is on your side Gulf Coast of America?

This week Republithug extraordinaire, "Jerkin" Joe Barton inadvertently told the truth.  No of course he didn't mean to... but he's oil through and through, so how could he hide his feelings?  The redneck Congressman is a former oil executive, and oh yeah, guess what? His oil company was purchased by BP. 

Oh no, no conflict of interest here... nothing to see... keep moving. When this all hat no rodeo cowboy made his Gulf Oil spill remarks he must have thought that he was merely following Republican Party protocol. Yet once the apology stumbled out of his mouth there was an immediate reaction of outrage and anger.  So naturally, Republithugs had to go into public relations damage control, or crisis management. Barton blew it. The dimwitted Texan had overloaded his mouth and committed a Republithug cardinal sin -- the energy chairman exposed, for any all to see, the "DNA" of the Republican Party -- NO, not ONLY the cozy relationship with big oil, but also that BIG OIL and REPUBLICAN are synonymous. They are the same reckless, selfish, inept yet still environmentally disastrous to our nation!  Yes indeed, they are exactly the same.  Many are still making the rounds trying to spin what was said.  John Fund the Wall Street Journal Neanderthal went as far to say, "that BP being prodded by the Obama administration to put up that fund is going to turn the United States into a “banana republic” and repeated the newly minted Republican meme that it was a “shakedown”.

Gee, I wonder just who these guys are protecting?  We definitely know who the Dems are trying to protect, while the Republithugs seem to care more for their donors than those losing everything while BP's big brass go yachting!


 

Just what political persuasion is Barrack Obama?  He's certainly not a PROGRESSIVE.  And hell, he's barely even a LIBERAL!

The fact that this White House allowed a staffer to GLOAT over the Blanche Lincoln narrow win over Labor's man Halter proves once again Obama isn’t who he said he was. The milquetoast Prez is a sham. No sir, Barry is not one of us… and God only knows exactly what or who he is…  After considerable thought, I seriously doubt he even knows. It's almost like it depends on the wind direction, or just how much the Republithugs complain. 

Need more proof?  Just look at the campaign promises already broken. If it was a progressive dream, he’s all but shattered it: escalation in Afghanistan, retreat on Guantanamo, no movement on worker rights or comprehensive immigration reform, dithering on 'don't ask, don't tell,' reverses on choice, delay on climate change and new energy. Just look at his idea of good candidates. Consider that Obama backed Spector over Joe Sestak, and Blanche "No to public option" Lincoln over Halter.  What the hell is Obama smoking? Then there is his handling of the oil spill Bullshit.. why has he allowed this to get away from him? Does he actually want the Bush comparisons?

Once again, he's lost my confidence.  I wish now, I'd worked even harder for Hillary.


Hypocrisy at its best. 

Abstinence means what?  Boinking a house staffer if you are a Republithug like Rep. Souder of Indiana.  Apparently he was selling it, but personally HE never bought it. 
"I sinned against God, my wife and my family by having a mutual relationship with a part-time member of my staff," Souder said. "In the poisonous environment of Washington, D.C., any personal failing is seized upon and twisted for political gain. I am resigning rather than put my family through a painful drawn out process."

Rep. Mark Souder was recently nominated for his ninth term representing northeastern Indiana.  He acknowledged an affair with a staffer Tuesday and unexpectedly announced his resignation, giving Democrats a chance at capturing what many had thought was a safe Republican seat.

The eight-term congressman apologized for his actions but provided no details.  This douche actually used his mistress in a pro abstinence video where the pious one criticized DEMS for questioning the effectiveness, etc.

"I am so ashamed to have hurt the ones I love," he said at a news conference in Fort Wayne. "I am sorry to have let so many friends down, people who have worked so hard for me."
Actually what he is sorry about is that the AFFAIR was uncovered... He's just another Republithug HYPOCRITE!
 


It is no surprise that with their total disdain for Government, the GOP has historically been abject failures at governing. So why do they keep fielding candidate after candidate? One obvious answer is to obstruct so they can claim government is a waste, etc.

 

George Bush, Dick Cheney and their bungling staffs spent eight years ruining our economy... even after they were handed a record surplus. And now that the GOP thinks you've forgotten just how inept they are as a governance body, they want you to put them back in the driver's seat with the ignition keys in hand. Scary, scary thought isn't it?  So, tell them HELL NO!



Mr. President: Its Time to Take the Wheel on Net Neutrality

In 2007, President Obama campaigned on the promise that he would “take a back seat to no one” in his support of Network Neutrality, the principle that stops Internet service providers from deciding which websites load fast, slow, or not at all. But if the press reports this week are accurate, the President and Federal Communications Commission Chairman Julius Genachowski are preparing to exit the back seat and jump out of the car altogether.

Last month, a federal appeals court ruled that the FCC, due to some terrible decisions made during the Bush administration, no longer has the authority to regulate broadband providers. That means the FCC can’t pass Network Neutrality rules, or even implement much of its National Broadband Plan, including programs to increase Internet adoption in poorer communities.

Conservatives and broadband providers hailed this decision as the end of Network Neutrality. But the story is not quite so simple. The truth is that the FCC still has the power to reverse the rejected reasoning of the Bush years, to re-establish its legal footing, and to protect the public interest.
 



 

It's obvious to me that the vast majority of illegals are simply people who are here to find work that is usually provided by greedy corporations and lazy rich people, so just arrest a few of Joe Arpaio's born again buddies, you know some CEOs and millionaires with illegal nannies and lawn care people, a few GOP elected officials and then believe me, that would end the problem practically overnight with almost no tax money or loss of liberties.

What do you think about or neighbor's (Arizona's) new immigration law "Papers please"... SB 1070?  Click to vote.
 

The Plum Line - Greg Sargent gave us this...

Queen of Tea Baggers
Palin Lies Again - boy that woman is on her back a lot!

On Facebook, the Queen of Tea Baggers Sarah Palin butchered President Obama’s quotes at the nuke summit in a strikingly dishonest (even for her) way, tearing them out of context to suggest he’s uncomfortable wielding American power and is hostile towards American exceptionalism:

Mr. President, is a strong America a problem?

Asked this week about his faltering efforts to advance the Middle East peace process, President Obama did something remarkable. In front of some 47 foreign leaders and hundreds of reporters from all over the world, President Obama said that “whether we like it or not, we remain a dominant military superpower.”

Whether we like it or not? Most Americans do like it.


Here’s what the President actually said:

But what we can make sure of is, is that we are constantly present, constantly engaged, and setting out very clearly to both sides our belief that not only is it in the interests of each party to resolve these conflicts but it’s also in the interest of the United States. It is a vital national security interest of the United States to reduce these conflicts because whether we like it or not, we remain a dominant military superpower, and when conflicts break out, one way or another we get pulled into them. And that ends up costing us significantly in terms of both blood and treasure.


As you can see, Palin and her team of ghostwriters plucked Obama’s remark out of context to quote him saying “whether we like it or not,” we are a superpower. In reality, he was saying that “whether we like it or not,” we get pulled into international conflicts that cost us American lives — so it’s in our security interests to resolve them.  Greg Sargent - The Plum Line

Its obvious this witch with a B doesn't understand the English language, so why does her interpretation of anything said become relevant?  What do you think of Queen of the Tea Baggers Sarah Palin?

"They are willfully misreading the bill or they are engaged in a cynical attempt to keep the president from achieving something." - Mark Halperin.

A January memo from Republican pollster Frank Luntz suggested that the public would be less likely to support financial reform if it was described as a fund to bail out banks.

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell seemed to be taking Luntz' advice when he repeatedly used the word "bailout" to describe the bill in a speech on the Senate floor. "This bill not only allows for taxpayer-funded bailouts of Wall Street banks, it institutionalizes them," he said.

"The thing is, it's crazy," Austin Goolsbee, a senior White House economic advisor, told Scarborough. According to the legislation, if the federal government is forced to intervene in a failing bank in the future, "all of the money is paid by financial institutions in the form of a bank fee," said Goolsbee.

"Nobody's allowed to be bailed out. It specifically outlaws bailouts. They must be liquidated or broken into pieces and sold off. All the management must be fired, and the shareholders must be wiped out. It specifically outlaws exactly the thing that they just keep standing up and saying that it promotes," he explained.


Yet, The GOP plans to filibuster Financial Reform. 

They claim the Dem plan will not prevent future Big Bank Bailouts... so let's take a look at the Big Bank Bailouts.. ok?  Big Bank Bailouts Are always caused by Republicans, when they are in power.  So, lets look at recent history: 
Crash of 1929. Hoover in the White House., Savings and Loan crash in the 1980s. Bush One, in the White House., 2008 Wall St. Banking Crash. Bush Two in the White House.

So it's quite apparent, the Best Way to Prevent bailouts, is to keep Republicans out of the White House. Just look at the havoc they create, when they get in.

Responding to criticism leveled by President Barack Obama in his weekly video address, Senate Minority Leader Mitch "no chin" McConnell accused the president on Sunday of politicizing the financial regulatory reform bill.  "He is the one who is trying to politicize this issue," McConnell said on CNN's "State of the Union." "We are the ones who are trying to get it right. When the Kentucky bankers tell that this bill is a long way from being what we ought to pass, then it raises some concerns with me. And I think it does with all of our colleagues across the country who are hearing the same thing."

McConnell has taken heat from the Obama administration and Democratic congressional leaders for meeting with at least two dozen top Wall Street executives and then coming out against banking reform.

"He made the cynical and deceptive assertion that reform would somehow enable future bailouts when he knows that it would do exactly the opposite," Obama said in the video address, referring to McConnell.

But on "State of the Union" McConnell repeated assertions that the bill amounted to another bailout for banks and said that Obama and Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner were not on the same page on the issue. 
Mitch McConnell is simply lying!

"He ought to talk to his own treasury secretary, who agrees with me, as well as the Washington Post and the Wall Street Journal, that there is a bailout fund in the bill that was reported out of the Banking Committee, the partisan bill that came out of committee on a party-line vote," McConnell said.

When CNN host Candy Crowley pressed McConnell,
saying that banks would have to fork over money for the fund not taxpayers, the Kentucky Republican replied: "Regardless of where the - how the money is produced, it is a bailout fund that sort of guarantees in perpetuity that we'll be intervening once again to bail out these big firms."  Yes lying Senator, with THEIR own MONEY.
 

The Tea Party Express?  Its Just A GOP Toy. 

The Tea Party Express itself is as phony as their complaints about Taxes (95% of working American families have seen a taxation cut  - your % of taxation is down since Obama).  Raw Story brings us the details.  The Tea Party Express has been billed as an organic grassroots operation, but a newly uncovered document obtained by Politico suggests the movement has been successfully co-opted as a Republican fundraising ploy.

GOP political consultant Joe Wierzbicki floated the proposal a year ago today to create the Tea Party Express, a nationwide bus tour to "give a boost to our PAC and position us as a growing force/leading force as the 2010 elections come into focus." His idea eventually became one of the best known brands in the Tea Party movement.

The document cautioned planners to be careful when discussing the ruse to use Tea Parties for political gain. "We have to be very, very careful about discussing amongst ourselves anyone we include 'outside of the family' because quite frankly, we are not only not part of the political establishment or conservative establishment, but we are also sadly not currently a part of the 'tea party' establishment," Wierzbicki wrote.

Wierzbicki, who works for the Sacramento firm Russo Marsh + Rogers, went on to outline how conservative media including Fox News could be leveraged to hype the Tea Party Express. He recommended using "mentions and possibly even promotion from conservative/pro-tea party bloggers, talk radio hosts, Fox News commentators, etc..."

Citing Michigan as an example, he noted that one of the plan's primary goals would be to elect Republican candidates. "It is also worth considering making a return run to Michigan.

This video is from MSNBC's Countdown, broadcast April 14, 2010.

  

Former Republican Michigan governor, John Engler, has recently stated that he believes the Republican Party will do quite well in Michigan," he continued. Raw Story has more of the details.


Finally Some Real Truth from a Tea Partier - Selfishness is what's driving these people. 
Grand Rapids resident Sharon Downer said, "[The health care bill is] going to tax the system way beyond what we have. For some reason, liberals seem to think people deserve paychecks who don't work and that's silly considering I don't want my hard earned money, my parents money, my siblings money to go to people who don't deserve it."

No, I guess she'd rather that hard earned money go to the Insurance Executive because by God, he deserves another couple of million in bonuses.  Just kick someone else off the insured roll and deny that expensive surgery they need to live... right?  Now that is fair... at least her money wouldn't have gone to some poor or middle class person.  Selfish, I'd say so.. but I'm sure her Christian God is different than mine.


Is the TEA PARTY BIGOTED, or RACIST?  Vote - share your opinion.  Oh my God, there is a new survey out proclaiming the party members to be above average in education, slightly older white Americans.  If that is so... why can't they spell?  You've all seen the signs and misspellings.  The average English speaker knows 10-20,000 words. The average teabagger can spell 11 of them!
Selfish Is As Selfish Does

One Day She May Need Some Help... will she turn it down if that time comes?

Victoria Jackson is as dumb as most tea partiers, but this is over the top... and watch and listen as the rank and file eat it up.  Whether he has a birth certificate or not, Obama is not an American.  You see to be an American means that you agree wholeheartedly with the Tea Partiers and right wing, and more importantly, you must look like them. 

It also helps that your trailer is parked in the right trailer park and facing South?

 


TALK ABOUT TONE DEAF!
Frustrated by recent political setbacks, tea party leaders and some conservative members of the Oklahoma Legislature say they would like to create a new volunteer militia to help defend against what they believe are improper federal infringements on state sovereignty.

Tea party movement leaders say they've discussed the idea with several supportive lawmakers and hope to get legislation next year to recognize a new volunteer force. They say the unit would not resemble militia groups that have been raided for allegedly plotting attacks on law enforcement officers.

"Is it scary? It sure is," said tea party leader Al Gerhart of Oklahoma City, who heads an umbrella group of tea party factions called the Oklahoma Constitutional Alliance. "But when do the states stop rolling over for the federal government?"

Thus far, the discussions have been exploratory. Even the proponents say they don't know how an armed force would be organized nor how a state-based militia could block federal mandates. Critics also asserted that the force could inflame extremism, and that the National Guard already provides for the state's military needs.

"Have they heard of the Oklahoma City bombing?" said Joseph Thai, a constitutional law professor at the University of Oklahoma. The state observes the 15th anniversary of the anti-government attack on Monday. Such actions could "throw fuel in the fire of radicals," he said.

 


Proud to be a Redneck Hillbilly


Coal CEO Calls Mine Safety Rules 'As Silly As Global Warming'

Don Blankenship
Here is your typical Repuke and what this party stands for... money first, not country, or community.  Worker's rights?  Hell NO.  Check this fat cat out, all wrapped tightly in the American flag, a true GOP bigwig, Don Blankenship tells the world that he cares only about profits not people.  Not even the people who have made him millions.  This major ass wipe needs to be put out of business for good.  On second thought, this sub human being should be in jail.  Care to vote on his punishment, or not?  Go to http//www.abqlinks.com/pages/Polls/

If you listen to the likes of Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, Newt Gingrich, Sean Hannity or the Twisted Sisters, Palin and Bachmann, the GOP is THE PARTY of fiscal conservatives... right?

In New Orleans right now, the party of Hell No is basking in the sunlight provided by the Main Stream Media while encouraging their attendees to hate the president, and claim they are the party of fiscal responsibility.  Obviously they have yet to face up to reality. They were DRUNK with power for over eight years, and spent like George W Bush spending Texas Rangers money on booze and coke.  Seriously, most all Americans know they are responsible for the economy that Obama is slowly lifting us out of... and they are the party that can't stop spending both donor and taxpayers money.  Need more proof, just look to Florida, let's forget about the spending by Michael "Know Where I Can Find A Lesbian Sex Show" Steele.

Melanie Phister's was a 25-year-old junior staffer when the Florida Republican Party gave her an American Express card.  Over the next 2½ years, nearly $1.3 million in charges wound up on Melanie Phister's AmEx — $40,000 at a London hotel, and nearly $20,000 in plane tickets for indicted former House Speaker Ray Sansom, his wife and kids, for starters. Statements show thousands spent on jewelry, sporting goods and in one case $15,000 for what's listed as a month-long stay at a posh Miami Beach hotel, but which the party says was a forfeited deposit.

The credit card records, obtained by the St. Petersburg Times and Miami Herald, offer the latest behind-the-scenes look at extravagant and free-wheeling spending by the party touting fiscal restraint. Not only did certain elite legislative leaders have their own party credit cards to spend donors' money with little oversight, but Phister's records show these leaders also liberally used an underling's card — without her knowledge, she says.

"I did not have the sole discretion to initiate credit card spending," Phister said in an e-mail statement. "Over that period of time, there were multiple instances when the card was used to make purchases that I had no knowledge of, and I did not regularly review the monthly credit card statements which I understand were sent directly to the Party's accounting office."

Even after a series of embarrassing revelations over profligate credit card spending by the likes of Republican U.S. Senate frontrunner Marco Rubio, Sansom and incoming House Speaker Dean Cannon — and pending state and federal investigations of party finances — revelations of the huge charges on Phister's card had veteran GOP fundraisers apoplectic.  And these people want you to think that suddenly they've found their inner fiscal conservative?  Give me a break.


Fox News is taken to the shed by Jon Stewart.  Watch to see Gingrich and Hannity accurately depicted as Beavis and Butthead by their willful misunderstanding of the Obama policy, or in my words, their freaking lies!  How did the public discourse in this country get so very poisoned?  Share your opinion by voting here.


On tour its Twisted Sisters Bachmann, Palin and the ever charitable "I like to ride in comfort" Sean Hannity... in FULL wing nut overdrive!
PAWLENTY OF BULLSHIT
and special suck up, guest star... Tim "I had to buy the BachmannRally.com web site domain name and redirect it to MY web site just to get attention" Pawlenty... What is truly amazing is how well a draw these people are to the so-called REAL Americans. 

Let’s consider this trio.  Fist a serial quitter with more ethics violations and questions than IQ points, next a scam artist ripping off the survivors of our brave veterans who made the ultimate sacrifice on foreign battle fields and lastly, Looney Tune Bachmann who has called for treasonous acts and armed conflict with our democratically elected Government. 

Patriots my ass... these 3 are simply the Three Stooges without any hint of actual humor!  What is going on here?  What is the reason for such a fractured and disconnected national dialog?  Why can't liberals and conservatives get along?  Care to offer an opinion, or two?

Big Man Cries Like a Baby

48 Year Old Crybaby Tea Partier Was Encouraged to be ANGRY by Fox News and its propagandists... So Says His Mommy

"Greg frequently gets in with a group of people that have really radical ideas and that are not consistent with myself or the rest of the family, which gets him into problems," Eleanor Giusti said. "I say Fox News, or all of those that are really radical, and he, that's where he comes from."

A San Francisco man accused of threatening House Speaker Nancy Pelosi in phone calls cried during his first court appearance, wearing a T-shirt and khakis and appearing disheveled.

Forty-eight-year-old Gregory Lee Giusti appeared Thursday morning before a federal magistrate, who read the charges of making obscene, threatening or harassing phone calls to a member of Congress.

Giusti is accused of making the calls because of anger over health care reform.

The magistrate ordered the U.S. Attorney's Office to interview Giusti to see if he is mentally competent enough to be released to a halfway house, or if he should continue to be detained.

If convicted, Giusti could receive a two-year prison sentence, $250,000 fine and one year of supervised release.

McCain claims he's never thought of himself as a Maverick?  Then can someone explain the title of his autobogrpahy? 

"McCain is shorting his own soul...He's driving down the price of his own soul by completely stripping it of its pride, its backbone, its integrity - all of its tangible assets - all the while knowing the value of his soul will soon plummet. Then, in a backdoor move, buys soul default swaps on the back end, makes a fortune and then picks his soul back up for a song when it hits bottom. And you know the worst part? Come election time, he's still get his tax-payer bailout and get re-elected. You know why? Because John McCain is too big to fail."

Jon Stewart goes right for the jugular of what is left of John McCain... I love it.  How can any thinking, sober person in Arizona watch this meltdown?  Better yet, how could anyone vote for this ego filled fool? 

Now, this is sure to scare the beejesus out of you....can you imagine he and Palin in the white house now?

Proving once again that the GOP is a party of Hypocrites, Liars and Deceivers!

FEC Commissioner Helped Conceal RNC's Role In Voter Suppression - and she's still in office but now with Obama's blessing?

Raw Story Reveals
How They Cheat To Win

Sore Losers that's what they are... the GOP is not just the party of Hell No!
Florida urologist Jack Cassell posted a sign on his office door reading, "If you voted for Obama ... seek urologic care elsewhere. Changes to your health care begin right now, not in four years."

Cassell, a registered Republican, quickly backpedaled in an interview with the Orlando Sentinel, but said he's perfectly happy to lose business over the sign. "I'm not turning anybody away, that would be unethical," he told the Sentinel. "But if they read the sign and turn the other way, so be it."

Patients who continue past the sign on Cassell's door find a waiting room stacked with Republican pamphlets opposing health care reform, underneath a sign reading, "This is what the morons in Washington have done to your health care. Take one, read it and vote out anyone who voted for it."  Rep. Alan Grayson (D-Fla.) told the Sentinel he was "disgusted" by Cassell's behavior.  "Maybe he thinks the Hippocratic Oath says, 'Do no good'," Grayson said. "If this is the face of the right wing in America, it's the face of cruelty. ... Why don't they change the name of the Republican Party to the Sore Loser Party?"

On Saturday, Alan Colmes had the displeasure of interviewing said doctor and found out that the man doesn't even know the details of the health care reform bill:  Dr. Jack Cassell, the Orlando urologist who put a sign on his door letting patients know he doesn’t want to have to treat them if they are Obama/health care reform supporters, was on my radio show Friday night, but didn’t seem to know much about the health care bill he’s criticizing.

Cassell: Hospice cuts in 2012…Does the government want people to die slowly?
Colmes: Do you really think the government wants people dead?
Cassell: Well I think that they’re cutting all supportive care, like nursing homes, ambulance services…
Colmes: What to you mean they’re cutting nursing homes?
Cassell: They’re cutting nursing home reimbursements
Colmes: Isn’t what they’re cutting under the Medicare plan what was really double dipping; they were getting credits and they were getting to deduct them at the same time.
Cassell: Well you know, I can’t tell you exactly what the deal is.
Colmes: If you can’t tell us exactly what the deal is, why are you opposing it and fighting against it?

Wow, a typical tea bagger - they don't know jack!  They've just heard whatever the GOP wants them to hear and feel they must protest.  Well, no one has ever accused these knuckle draggers of being mental giants, just ill informed loudmouths... led by their white trash Queen Sarah that is all. Who knew there were so many?


Judge found sworn testimony 'belied' the facts - read the whole story.

Caroline Hunter, a Bush-appointed Federal Election Commissioner who remains in office, provided misleading statements under oath in an effort to conceal Republican National Committee involvement in vote suppression activities during the 2004 presidential election, a Raw Story investigation has found.

Legal experts say Hunter's submission of misleading statements under oath is a serious ethical and professional breach which could warrant a bar review and potential disbarment. At the time, Hunter was serving as deputy counsel to the Republican National Committee.

How a young Republican lawyer became a central witness

In the final days of the 2004 presidential election, the Democratic National Committee files an injunction against the Republican National Committee in New Jersey federal court, alleging its involvement in using lists of returned mail to challenge 35,000 newly registered Ohio voters. This tactic, also known as voter caging, is historically employed to suppress votes from minority and low-income citizens who tend to vote Democratic.

Sworn testimony from a young Republican lawyer plays a central role in the RNC's defense. That lawyer's name is Caroline Hunter.

In her affidavit, submitted under penalty of perjury, Hunter claims "the RNC is not initiating, controlling, directing, or funding any programs of 'voter challenges' … including the effort by the Ohio Republican Party to challenge voter registrations in Ohio."

"Although representatives of the RNC were involved in the emails discussing the possibility of the challenges described above," she continues, "the RNC has not initiated any challenges to the absentee ballots in Ohio or in any other state."

Burchfield tells the court that Hunter's affidavit is proof the RNC isn't violating the decree. Rather, he says, her statement demonstrates the party was diligent to avoid "initiating, controlling, directing or funding" any voter challenger programs.

Yet her affidavit is submitted along with email communications showing RNC members engaging in vote caging activities in Ohio. They also demonstrate that the RNC worked in concert with state Republican Party officials. Hunter is on a few of the emails but her involvement is unclear.

After hearing arguments from both sides, Judge Debevoise rules that the RNC has violated the decree.

In granting the injunction, Debevoise specifically addresses Hunter's statement denying that the Party was involved in vote caging activities. He finds her sworn testimony -- made as a witness -- unsupported by the facts in the case.

"Miss Hunter," Judge Debevoise tells the court, "states in a conclusory way that, 'To the best of my knowledge, after due investigation, the RNC is not initiating, controlling, directing, or funding any programs of voter challenges as described above, including the effort by the Ohio Republican Party to challenge voter registration in Ohio as alleged.'"

"Miss Hunter's information and belief," he concludes, "is belied by the evidence developed during the brief period of discovery.

Emails show Hunter received caging email

Hunter was also named as a recipient on one of the most incriminating RNC emails discussing vote-caging activities in Ohio. The message included plans to roll out similar activities in Florida, Pennsylvania, Nevada and New Mexico.

Her name, along with others in the RNC hierarchy, appears on other emails as a scheduled participant in conference calls to discuss voter challenges. The subject lines on the emails are "Cuyahoga Returned List" and "Voter Reg Fraud Strategy conference calls."


Yes indeed Michelle Bachmann,' he's the Man alright.  Michael "Diamond Jim" Steele... big spender... of everyone else's $$!

RNC Chairman Michael Steele,
the man spending donor money like a drunken sailor. He's even wanted to buy his own private jet to whisk him from topless club to topless club... (LESBIAN themed topless clubs even).  Read more about that discussion on the Daily Caller Dot Com.  The RNC explains that Steele charters jets only when commercial service is unavailable, or when his tight schedule requires it. “Anytime the chairman has taken any private travel has been a either to a route that doesn’t exist or because of connections and multiple travel to where he just wasn’t able to do so,” Heye said. Yet Steele’s office repeatedly refused to explain in specific terms the circumstances of the February charter flights.

Once on the ground, FEC filings suggest, Steele travels in style. A February RNC trip to California, for example, included a $9,099 stop at the Beverly Hills Hotel, $6,596 dropped at the nearby Four Seasons, and $1,620.71 spent [update: the amount is actually $1,946.25] at Voyeur West Hollywood, a bondage-themed nightclub featuring topless women dancers imitating lesbian sex.  The GOP, the morality police for the rest of us.  So much for Family Values and longer will Michael be known as the Man of “steel” , no sir... his new nickname is “woody.” Don't you know Clarence Thomas is GREEN with envy?

RNC trips to other cities produced bills from a long list of chic and costly hotels such as the Venetian and the M Resort in Las Vegas, and the W (for a total of $19,443) in Washington. A midwinter trip to Hawaii cost the RNC $43,828, not including airfare.

Steele himself declined numerous interview requests, though his defenders point out that luxurious accommodations are sometimes necessary to attract big-time donors, especially since Republicans remain in the minority in Washington.  Read more about the RNC Chairs lavish lifestyle at contributor expense.  


Proof Positive the extreme rightwing of the GOP, the party of HELL NO is a Full House of whack jobs who are prone to violence.

 70 yr old Harry Weisiger

A Nashville man  says he and his 10-year-old daughter were victims of road rage Thursday afternoon, all because of a political bumper sticker on his car.

He said Harry Weisiger gave him the bird and rammed into his vehicle, after noticing an Obama-Biden sticker on his car bumper.

Duren had just picked up his 10-year-old daughter from school and had her in the car with him.

"He pointed at the back of my car," Duren said, "the bumper, flipped me off, one finger salute."

Once he started driving again, down Blair Boulevard, towards his home, he said, "I looked in the rear view mirror again, and this same SUV was speeding, flying up behind me, bumped me."

Duren said he applied his brake and the SUV smashed into the back of his car.

He then put his car in park to take care of the accident, but Weisiger started pushing the car using his SUV.

Duren said, "He pushed my car up towards the sidewalk, almost onto the sidewalk."

 

I tried to call Harry Weisiger to find out what he was thinking, but to no avail. Interesting enough, Harry K. Weisiger is still listed on the web site for Hayward, formerly Cumberland Real Estate, Inc., but they say he's been retired for a few years?  Humm, I wonder why someone who retired years ago is still listing real estate and continues to have a prominent place on the company's  web site?  I spoke to the reporter who broke the story and she said the man lost his wife a few weeks ago and that might have helped trigger his road rage incident.  Those we spoke to regarding Mr. Weisiger to a person said he has steadfast political beliefs and in the past has had political aspirations of his own... the man is 70 years old now, and I guess after this embarrassing incident those dreams may be at an end.


Its a shame that you can't trust a damn word that comes from the mouth of RepubliTHUG Eric Cantor.

Just like Lou Dobbs' errant attempt at martyrdom, Eric's has blown up in his face too.  Cantor said, "I have been directly threatened. A bullet was shot through the window of my campaign office in Richmond."  

Apparently the claim was pure bullshit just like everything else he says.  Richmond police spokesman Gene Lepley told CNN Friday that it was the result of "random gunfire."  The building, which has several tenants including an office used by Cantor, was unoccupied at the time, the news release said.  And police said the bullet struck at about 1 a.m. on Tuesday. The preliminary investigation showed that "a bullet was fired into the air and struck the window in a downward direction, landing on the floor about a foot from the window. The round struck with enough force to break the windowpane but did not penetrate the window blinds."  Slightly different a story from "I have been directly threatened."  My God Eric Cantor, what a pussy you are! 

And of course FAUX News jumped on and repeated the claim mercilessly.  Time and time again in a desperate attempt to spin the propaganda in the best way for the rightwing
, FAUX News gave credence to this bullshit story.  Fair and balanced... yeah, right.


How the immediate benefits of healthcare reform rollout.

Calendar year 2010

  • Tax credit assistance - Small businesses are eligible for a 35% tax credit; non-profits may receive up to a 25% credit.
     
  • Medicare Part D "donut hole" begins to close. Seniors receive a $250 rebate for prescription expenses in excess of $2,830.00.
     
  • Adoption Credit Increases adoption credit by $1,000, makes it refundable, and extends the credit through the 2011 tax year
     
  • Health students' assistance - Expands student loan programs, scholarships and loan repayments for medical services students, also allows exclusions from gross incomes for health professionals serving in underserved areas.

March 23, 2010
Federal grants to states to implement consumer assistance for complaints

April 1, 2010
Medicaid - Allows states to opt to cover parents and childless adults up to 133% of the Federal Poverty Level and receive federal funds under the current (strengthened) formulas

***  Please note how every item on the list is a benefit to most Americans, which obviously translates to an increase in disposable income, making it even more difficult for RepublTHUGS to repeal it.


As Joe Biden so succinctly put it... its "A Big F---ing Deal."
Only hours after the president signed health care reform legislation into law on Tuesday, the immediate political benefits for the Democratic Party are already coming into focus.

According to a Gallup/USA Today poll conducted the day after health care legislation passed the House of Representatives, 49 percent of the respondents think the passage of reform is a "good thing," compared to the 40 percent who think it is bad. The numbers are a welcome relief for a party and a presidency that had been bleeding popular support over the course of the past six months.

Democrats didn't just get a health-care-related boost in the realm of public opinion. The Democratic National Committee reported raising more than $1 million in donations on Tuesday even without making a direct ask. The money is expected to pour in for other campaign committees as well.

Responding to the growing GOP effort to get the legislation repealed, the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee launched a new fundraising toolbar on its website, pointing out which Republican senatorial candidates are ready to take away what particular benefits of reform.

And oddly, the GOP want to try and repeal the new healthcare reform bill? They (RepubliTHUGS) are also still claiming the American People don't like this Government Take Over, and that it was rammed down our throats, etc. How out of touch can privileged, rich, white men get?  I guess in their Country Club circles everyone has enough money that they can afford health coverage and don't want you or I to share in their good fortune!


Obama is making Bush look less PARANOID

Why is Obama being so secretive? When he took office almost immediately he made the promise of greater government transparency. Ye his administration is more often citing exceptions to the nation's open records law to withhold federal records even as the number of requests for information declines. This according to a review by the Associated Press of agency audits about Freedom of Information Act requests.

Oddly, the Obama Administration is quashing more requests than Bush ever did. Among the most frequently cited reasons for keeping records secret: one that Obama specifically told agencies to stop using so frequently. The Freedom of Information Act exception, known as the "deliberative process" exemption, lets the government withhold records that describe its decision-making behind the scenes.  So far, Obama's directive, memorialized in written instructions from the Justice Department, appears to have been widely ignored.

Major agencies cited the exemption at least 70,779 times during the 2009 budget year ( actually just in nine months time), up from 47,395 times during President George W. Bush's final full budget year, according to annual reports filed by federal agencies.

As you can imagine, the government's report card on transparency is the Freedom of Information Act, or better yet, how widely it is used, or not. In other words, just how transparently it goes about making its decisions of what information it is willing to share. When Obama promised last year to be more open he said doing so "encourages accountability through transparency," and said: "My administration is committed to creating an unprecedented level of openness in government."

In a statement Tuesday during Sunshine Week, when news organizations promote open government and freedom of information, Obama noted the release of White House visitor logs and federal data online in recent months said his administration was recommitted "to be the most open and transparent ever."

"We are proud of these accomplishments, but our work is not done," Obama said. "We will continue to work toward an unmatched level of transparency, participation and accountability across the entire administration."

So what happened to that promise? The AP's review of annual Freedom of Information Act reports filed by 17 major agencies found that the administration's use of nearly every one of the law's nine exemptions to withhold information from the public increased during fiscal year 2009, which ended last October.
 


HEALTH CARE REFORM FALLOUT
Who's WATERLOO is it?  Some say the GOP's like David Frum, and many are angry.  The party of NO, the immature, petulant, kicking. screaming, holding their breath, promising to never eat again GOP members are saddened, upset and righteously pissed off.  "There will be no cooperation for the rest of the year," McCain said during an interview Monday on an Arizona radio affiliate. "They have poisoned the well in what they've done and how they've done it."  Wow, what a threat.  So that means RepubliTHUGS are going to continue to do what they've been doing for the last fourteen months?  So how'd that work out for you Republicans on healthcare reform?  So more of the party of NO for the remainder of the year huh?  Well, as George W Bush liked to say, bring it. 

The individual mandate is an "unprecedented overreach by the federal government forcing individual citizens to buy a good or a service for no other reason then they happen to be alive or a person," Republican governor of Minnesota Tim Pawlenty said today on "Good Morning America."  Uh, wasn't that a Richard Nixon, or Ronald Reagan idea?  Either Nixon, or Reagan the patron Saint of Republithugs presented that idea when he was discussing healthcare reform... back in the day.  So, why does Tim Pawlenty hate Ronald Reagan, or is it Richard Nixon that first asked for an Employee mandate?
 


Wow, Obama has delivered something.  No, its not perfect, or even close to all we wanted, but still... CHANGE HAS COME, Progressives win and Regressives (the GOP) lose.  The American condition is much improved and will continue to IMPROVE.  Just like Social Security, Medicare and Civil Rights, the Republicans are on the wrong side of history.  But even THEY can be dragged, kicking and screaming as John Boehner did last night, into the year 2010 and possibly beyond.

House passes health care reform, the most sweeping social legislation in more than four decades.    
Bill passes 219-212...  of course the party of NO in a last ditch effort, still tried in vain to kill the bill!

REFORM is here... the votes are in, and soon Healthcare Reform will be the law of the land in spite of the party of NO.  Republithugs did their best, told lie after lie, brought up the boogeyman and of course spent millions to defeat the middle class and low income into submission.  Yet, in a matter of minutes, they will have lost and America has won.  God bless America. 

Here's a good question, who gets to book Rush Limbaugh's flight to Costa Rica? 

And oh yes, if these Republithugs are serious about the reducing the goddamned deficit, they should vote to end both the Iraq and Afghanistan wars NOW!


 Stewart Skewers Beck - and for good reason because all of Glenn's buffoonery needs as much exposure as possible!

Sadly, the show has enormous ratings which is bewildering.  I mean, to think that many people are so immensely stupid - bigoted - sheeplike - to believe and enjoy Beck's inane ranting and ravings.


Now Get This....
This is why they are called REPUBLITHUGS....

Apparently deriding, humiliating, belittling and heckling a handicapped man is what Republithugs do.  This is all you need to know about Republicans and hard core conservatives.  Compassion... I think NOT!  Americans for Prosperity needs to hear from you and your friends.  Contact these sub humans at:  Phone: (703)-224-3200, or toll free: (866)-730-0150 or visit their site at:  http://www.americansforprosperity.org  These pathetic people also have state chapters... contact your state office too.  When I contacted the Texas chapter their spokesperson claimed the 2 individuals at the Ohio rally where this incident took place were "random" participants of the rally.  When pressed she actually denied the fools that heckled and abused the person on the ground in this video were members of Americans for Prosperity.  Well, I'm sure they aren't members.... NOW  Its strange that the right leaning Columbus Dispatch didn't follow up on their video to find out if the two sickening so called people depicted harassing the man with Parkinsons were members of American Prosperity... isn't it?  Why no follow up?  I phoned the Dispatch this morning and as of yet, no follow up to report.  When asked if they had determined if the 2 wonderful human beings in the video were members of American for Prosperity, they had not even investigated that aspect... yet.  A very sad state of affairs for American journalism... isn't it?

Shameful State Chapters (after viewing the above video... if you find your state has a chapter, please call and tell them what you think.)


Lindsey Graham rewrites history and omits the psycho right wingers who caused Bush's immigration bill to fail in interview with ABC News.  Geez, why would they want to try and woe minorities such as Hispanics... now?
grahm a republithug liar
Lindsey Graham, a who favorite date for the MSM, and one who appears on the tube nearly as often as gramps McCain did his best Karl Rove and tried to rewrite history and blame the Democratic Party for the failure of the Bush immigration bill. Apparently, he doesn't remember that Karl Rove's plan to try and capture the Latino vote failed miserably as the xenophobic right wing talk shows, bloggers and of course the toxic Tom Tancredo's went ballistic and ran off minority support.

ABC TAPPER: Well, the leader of the Republican charge, other than President Bush, for immigration reform last time was your dear friend Senator John McCain, who, as far as I can tell, is completely AWOL from the debate. 
Oh, much like Bush while in the Texas Air National Guard?

I know he has a tough primary against a more conservative -- arguably more conservative challenger there. But shouldn't -- I mean, where -- what is his commitment? It certainly doesn't look unwavering.

GRAHAM: blah, blah... blah...
More total BS defending his BBF...... and basically offering nothing tangible.

ABC TAPPER:  To be fair, Senator Graham, the reason that immigration reform didn't pass last time, even with you, Senator McCain and President Bush pushing for it, was because of the Republican Party. The Republican Party seems in no --

GRAHAM: That's not fair.

ABC TAPPER: Why is that not fair? 
Maybe because the party of privileged, overweight, rich, white men have no tent, and least of all a big tent.

GRAHAM: That's not fair at all.

ABC TAPPER:  Even Republican members who are part of the coalition voted against it. 


Here's a great new web site for your perusal:  CHRONICLING The Misdeeds of the RICH,  The Evil of Rich People, or The Evil Done by The Rich
The swindling saga of legendary Wall Street conman Bernard Madoff has inspired the creation of The Vile Plutocrat, a website devoted to the notion that "rich people suck."

The Vile Plutocrat gathers news about the misdeeds of "the entitled class," mixes in scathing editorial commentary and then links stories to biographies of the purported villains.

"The idea was born out of the Bernie Madoff scandal," Paul Burton of 16 Toads Design told AFP late Saturday at a South By South West Interactive gathering here.

"In a nutshell, we are looking for any kind of news that revolves around people in the upper echelons of society that are doing something that takes money away from the middle class."

"The short version of the website is rich people suck," Burton said of the small operation based in the US state of Georgia. "We pull in news from around the world and it involves people from every country."


What a scream...
Karl Rove lies like the pig he is and Brokaw allows it while NBC gives him a forum to practice his revisionist craft.  WHY?  What motivation has NBC to help this SNAKE OIL salesman hawk his book of bountiful lies?  Crooks and Liars give us the video of Rove's bald face lies.

Anyone with a brain that isn't Bush's brain knows that within days after the U.S. invasion, then-Deputy Defense Secretary Paul Wolfowitz told a congressional panel that Iraqi oil revenues would help pay for reconstructing the country, i.e. a cost of the war. “The oil revenue of that country could bring between 50 and 100 billion dollars over the course of the next two or three years. We’re dealing with a country that could really finance its own reconstruction, and relatively soon,” he said.

One month before the war, then-White House press secretary Ari Fleischer said Iraq “is a rather wealthy country. … And so there are a variety of means that Iraq has to be able to shoulder much of the burden for their own reconstruction."


Turd Blossom's lies are so predictable, but even more predictable are the MSM reporters allowing the lies to go unchallenged. And to think Brokaw was once a respected journalist.



Because investigators with Toyota Motor Corp. and the federal government were unable to make a Toyota Prius speed out of control as its owner said it did on a California freeway, and according to a memorandum obtained Saturday by The Associated Press that a congressional spokesman says casts doubt on the driver's story; Republithugs that love to spend time stalking at Hugffington Post concluded that the driver lied and eventually with their ignorant posts began to cast blame on Obama, Dems and of course trial lawyers.

Yeah, yeah somehow I knew this accelerator problem on Toyota cars was Obama's fault... or maybe Pelosi and Reid, or maybe the unions, but no doubt trial lawyers for sure.  Screw safety first, its making that almighty dollar is the only thing that Republithugs care about.  Republithugs you guys are a riot. Your worshipping at the altar of greed will one day be your undoing... and I hope it's sooner than anyone thinks... in other words, I hope it gets accelerated.


Now Get This....
This is why they are called REPUBLITHUGS....
Not more than two days after her horrible accident, Harry Reid's wife is savaged by the most ignorant of idiot Republithugs.  The moron had to politicize her auto accident.  Seriously....

Read Dan Riehl's own words:

If Democrats want so badly to abort babies because of (healthcare costs), why are we bothering with someone who has a broken neck and back at 69? It sounds to me like she’s pretty well used up and has probably been living off the taxpayers for plenty of years to begin with. Aren’t we at least going to get a vote on it?

It's possible that Riehl is trying to allude to the non-existent "death panels" made infamous by Sarah Palin. But if Riehl is attempting irony, it falls seriously flat. Writers across the Web have quickly denounced his statement that Reid "pull the plug" on his wife.

Come on, Harry - do your civic duty. The nation's broke and counting on you guy. Pull the plug and get back to work. And don't bill us for a full day today, either. This is no time to be sloughing off. Air freight her home, you can bury her during recess on your own time and dime. Or are you going to bill us for that, too?

Lord knows y
ou can polish it all you want, but a turd is still a turd and this one is one of the biggest.  I'll bet this asswipe has pleaded for bi-partisanship and civility in the recent past... what a friggin idiot.  Dems wake up, this is the mentality of Republithugs... they can not be reasoned with... they don't think!


Glenn Beck is a national embarrassment.....

Click to view the video: Glenn Beck Attacks Progressives

Fox host Glenn Beck spent much of the last week claiming that a normal, everyday progressive was linked to Stalin, Elvis, Joe Biden's cousin, and the guy who came up with the idea of taxes.  And for real, humiliating himself with his torturous hour long  interview with ERIC MASSA where Massa outwitted Beck throughout the entire program.  Imagine that... Beck was shown up by the Looney Tune former Congressman Beck had so hoped he could manipulate into spilling the beans on those evil Democrats.  Instead, Massa bewildered Beck leaving him speechless for much of the hour long show.
 

Colbert Hammers GOP For Insane Euphemisms

Thanks to Frank Luntz and his Word Doctors, this is not the first time Republicans have twisted words around to follow their agenda, citing classics like "death panel" and "no." And like all the others, "nuclear option" is no less extreme.

To make his point, Colbert noted that any word could be twisted around to have a negative connotation, and conservatives may need to make the health care bill sound even more evil to sway the American people. "Doctors" could be called "rubber gloved ass-probers" who "keep you from going to heaven."


 

Fat Ass, loudmouth, lying Rush Limbaugh gives DEMS all the incentive and reason they need to pass healthcare reform... a caller asked the slimy one where he would go for health care if Congress enacts reform: 

Limbaugh:  I don't know. I'll just tell you this, if this passes and it's five years from now and all that stuff gets implemented -- I am leaving the country. I'll go to Costa Rica.


 

Now the bloated one shows his real colors... some Patriot huh?  Things don't go his way so he takes his football and goes home... to Costa Rica... ha ha what a joke!  He wants to go to Costa Rica... where they have UNIVERSAL Healthcare?  Interesting... what a commie.

UPDATE:  You knew it was too good to be trure.  The asswipe we know as Rush Limbaugh has already changed his tune:  Now he claims what he meant was that he'd go to Costa Rica for his healthcare... not actually MOVE there.  Yo dimly lit one, the fact of the matter is that Costa Rica has far superior "Socialist-Communist-anti-American" health care.  In fact. it's not just for their citizens, tourists and visitors of all kinds can partake... even FAT, lying druggies like you.


Just six more months and US Troops are suppose to leave Iraq.  Iraq just held elections again and this time they were less violent and corrupt (biting tongue... tongue bleeding) so we've been told.  So, Jon Stewart devoted a little air time to the Iraq experience and what all this means.  He singles out praise for many of the players... and I do mean PLAYERS!


 


While interviewed on his book tour with Matt Lauer, Karl Rove claims that he never used "Dirty Tricks."  Turd Blossom also  insisted he is not a negative campaigner.  He also claims he's not now, nor ever has been overweight.  Yes, he was beaten up by a girl.  And that contrary to most views, he says his father wasn't gay.  He goes on to say George Bush never lied and was not AWOL as an Air Force National Guard Pilot.  He also proclaims the Iraq War was justified, because HE said so... and the rotund one spews out so many other lies that he of course says that he nor Bush ever uttered in his new book Courage and Consequence: My Life as a Conservative in the Fight. 

Ah but of course, Matt "I'll believe anything a GOP gas bag tells me" Lauer was more than happy NOT to challenge any one of these ridiculous assertions by Mr. Turd Blossom.  Still, its a great read of Pure Fiction, and you'll laugh your ass off at the absurdity of it all. 

If you'd like to see some of the BS that Rove put in his book... check out media watchdog Media Matters and read a few of the Rovian lies.  They are priceless...


The RNC caught demeaning it's own donors and intentionally trying to make Americans fearfull of their President and Government... I'm so confused.  I thought that was the job of Teabaggers....
White Men Only Club - the GOP!
The Republican National Committee showed little respect for its donors and is trying to manipulate their donors by playing on "fear" of President Barack Obama and the top Republican in the Senate doesn't like it. Politico revealed a GOP PowerPoint presentation last week that recommended using fear and extreme negative feelings about Democrats to raise money.  Apparently this is what Republightugs call bi-partisan.

"That sort of thing is certainly not helpful. I can't imagine why anybody thought that would be helpful," Sen. Mitch McConnell told ABC's Matt Dowd Sunday.

"I don't like it. I don't know anybody that does," he said.  Oh yeah, and we all believe you Mitchie Boy.

When asked if someone should be fired for the presentation the Senate Minority Leader tried to distance himself from the RNC. "Look, I don't run the RNC. That's up to them," he said.  I still don't get it.  He said he didn't like it... what?  The fact that the RNC cares so little for its donors or simply that they GOT CAUGHT?  Which is it McConnell?


So, why isn't this REPUKE in jail where he belongs?
Why does CNN think anyone cares what Tom DeLay thinks? 
The crook should be behind bars and not trying to compare his crime with what got Charlie Rangell admonished by the ethics committee.  What he did was unlawful both in Texas and nationally....  Charlie broke no LAWS.  Yet that idiot Candy Crowley allowed him to make the claim that there was a real, an honest comparison.  Among other crap that spewed from the bug man's mouth was this little gem.  and showing his true compassion for all of mankind, Delay called Sen. Jim Bunning (R-Ky.) "brave" on Sunday for launching a one-man filibuster of unemployment benefits, arguing that they dissuaded people from going out and finding work.  Seriously this dickbird actually said, "unemployment benefits keeps people from going and finding jobs.  In other words, they have no jobs because they don't want jobs..?  Someone please, tell me why does CNN continue to promote this dirt bag?


John Patrick Bedell, the lone wolf shooter of two Pentagon Police Officers is NOT a terrorist.  You betcha!  Even though the 36-year-old right wing extremist is a fervent anti government believer and was most likely incited by FOX News, the Glen Beck's, Sara Palin's, Michelle Malkin's and that Minnesota wacko Michelle Bachman, or just about most any tea bagger of this world.
 
   John Patrick Bedell
no doubt a warped malcontent...
Oh no, not terrorism... it was a US citizen, so it can't be called terrorism... after all he wasn't Muslim... you know? 

Sadly, authorities were warned, but apparently nothing if anything was done even after being warned of his unstable behavior, extremist views he was still allowed to purchase a gun even with his history of either bipolar disorder, or manic depression
(John Patrick Bedell was in and out of treatment programs for several years). 

Why?  Seriously, how does HE get a gun?  He was missing for four days when his parents called the authorities.  So why wasn't a red flag raised?  He spent time in Reno, NV where he was given a citation for marijuana possession, or cultivation.  Later on he was ticketed for speeding in Amarillo, Texas and still nothing was done.  Although, his parent asked that they try to send him to a mental institution, but he refused and the t
he patrolman who had stopped him go with a warning. 

Conservative propagandist Michelle Malkin now says that Bedell was a registered Democrat... really?  If so, he didn't share many of the parties core values did he?  He does however share many of the Republithugs: 
In an Internet posting, Bedell had suggested an act like the 2001 terrorist attacks could have been the work of a criminal organization controlling the U.S. government, accepting a "sacrifice of thousands of its citizens ... as a small cost in order to perpetuate its barbaric control."Yes mam Michelle, his deluded and venomous view of the government seems pretty far out there, but leftist?  Actually it seems much closer to the views of your compadres.  You know like the right wing zealots like you and say... other people much closer to the Republithug power and authority who are out there preaching these days.

"America is teetering towards tyranny," Republican Sen. Jim DeMint of South Carolina told the Conservative Political Action Conference last month. He accused the governing Democrats of peddling socialist policies "that have been the enemy of freedom for centuries all over the world."  Oh yes and before you say that his internet posting was leftist because it was a 911 conspiracy theory, please consider that little lady from Texas who won what was it... 19% of the Republican vote in the Republithug primary for governor?  It just proves that people like Malkin, Limbaugh and Beck with the help of Fox News, have dumbed down their audiences so that they will believe damn near anything.

Since the first black president was elected, Republithugs have cried the sky is falling over and over again.  Republithugs have called any and every Obama policy either a form of socialism, or even Nazism.   I will admit they've done it for decades, but not as intensely until the black dude took power... why?.


  
There is a new movement afloat... the new proposal would put Ronald Reagan's face on the $50 bill.  Yikes, Howdy Doody on the fifty?  North Carolina Rep. Patrick McHenry's bill to replace Ulysses S. Grant's image with the 40th president's generates controversy.  Good lord, 45,000 people die each year without health care and this Yo Yo fiddles with a bill to pay homage to the Patron Saint of STUPIDITY. 

"President Reagan is indisputably one of the most transformative presidents of the 20th century," McHenry said in a letter to colleagues seeking their support. "Like President Roosevelt on the dime and President Kennedy on the half dollar, President Reagan deserves a place of honor on our nation's currency."

The $50.00 bill is NOT the appropriate setting for Ronald Reagan face...  No sir, at the bottom of public urinals is more apt a spot. You see, that way we can all trickle down on a worthwhile target.

Rachel Maddow sets the record straight.  She calls out Orrin Hatch for his lies and the Washington Post for printing them.  In Sen. Hatch's column he says, "Reconciliation on health care would be an assault to the democratic process," and argues against the use of reconciliation, a simple majority voting procedure, to "to jam through [health care] legislation." Maddow points out the pompous gas bag Sen. Hatch used reconciliation no less than 10 times over the past 21 years.  The GOP is full of hypocrites.


Hutchison Concedes Texas G.O.P. Primary for Governor to Perry

Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison Tuesday night conceded the Texas Republican primary for governor to the incumbent, Rick Perry, saying the party should unite behind the governor so he can win in November.

Just proves that Texas has more wing nuts per square inch than any 20 other states combined... secede, please... do us all a favor.



Wing nut and lying bastard Roger Ailes, president of the propaganda Channel (FOX), suggested in his interview with the National Review that there is no definition for success in Afghanistan.  Huh?  And what was the definition for over EIGHT years in Iraq you fatass Republithug?  Obama has done more in less than a year of taking over the two wars started by the Cheney/Bush presidency in order to define success in Afghanistan than Cheney and Bush did for the entire duration of their disastrous term as Commander in Chief.  Click here to play the ugly toads interview segment.  You may need Quicktime to play... click here to install if need be.

"I didn't think that escalating 400,000 more troops [was] warranted [during Vietnam] in a jungle where I didn't know what we were going to win. It's a little bit like Afghanistan right now. Now I understand the nuclear issue, but there is a problem -- when you send people into war, you have to tell them what they're trying to win."  WTF, and you called anyone that said that during the Bush atrocity treasonous, lying, and Un American.  But now, because what... the President is black, a Democrat it's patriotic to say that now? 

And the lying bastards at FOX want to be believed?  Oh yes, just in case you've been living under a rock for the last 8 or so years, Ailes' position is basically that "we are escalating a war that we cannot win because there's no definition of winning -- [which is] diametrically opposed to virtually every utterance on the subject of Afghanistan that his network has ever broadcast."  I guess this fool believes no one paid attention during the Cheney/Bush years?  Just how stupid does Jabba the Hut think we are?

Wow, this turd Ailes has selective memory. Not more than a year or two ago, he and all the other wing nuts were saying to heed the advice of the Generals on the ground. Now the asswipe wants to change his story... why?  Maybe because you want keep disseminating your vile, right wing propaganda?  Could it simply be because you want to keep deceiving your retarded audience?  You just want to keep dumbing down the ill informed, uneducated, rednecks that tune into your network BS? 

Who's Dumber than Palin?

What an asshole looks like!

Sen. Jim Bunning's office number is: 202-224-4343 - CALL HIM and let him know how you feel about his crusade.

GOP Gasbag Jim Bunning decides the poor need to get even poorer, and who are they to get in the way of him watching Kentucky B-Ball?  Sen. Jim Bunning Filibusters Unemployment Extension, and because their leaders have no gonads, the Dems Roll Over and allow this one simpleton to screw with millions of unemployed and of course the states where they would be getting unemployment benefits.  Oh yeah and oddly very few MSM outlets identified this ass as the Republithug he is... they simply headlined with "Senator."

If the DEM's had any TRUE leaders... especially when it comes to Obama, and Reid, they'd make certain the entire GOP pays a price for what this asswipe Bunning has done.  If I'm not mistaken, the GOP helped fund a competitor, or primary challenger to him not long ago.  So even they know this man is wackier than Sarh Plain.  Of course he can afford to behave this badly because he's retiring.  He claims he's just crusading against deficit spending, but I'll bet he's doing this more to derail the badly needed stimulus spending and to hinder any immediate job creation.

Of course, the whole lie through your teeth to scare people into thinking the boogey man is for real deserves a whole lot of payback as well.

Click to see this pompous ass yelling at ABC News reporters... what a total asshole....

It apparently didn't happen on camera, but Bunning also reportedly gave an ABC News producer the middle finger.

The GOP should pay a steep price for what this idiot has done... and if Obama had any huevos, he'd lead the charge.   Does anyone know if this one man crusade against logic is the same guy that played major league baseball?  Well yes, this is the same Bunning that pitched in the majors.  So, someone needs to check for steroids and other drugs... he appears to be on crack.  Well then again, which Repuke doesn't?


Amazingly another crack addict appears.  See what I mean?  Ah yes, Senator Kyl from Arizona is defending Bunning, and with a straight face.  God only knows how pay as you go only applies to those programs that help the poor, elderly and middle class.  My God, it seems that pay as you go NEVER EVER seems to apply to wars, corporate welfare and tax cuts for the rich.. why is that?   Why not call and ask this Repuke that very question?
Kyl's DC office number -  (202) 224-4521.
 


Want to see what a true dumbass looks like?  Check the video below of Michael Steele stepping in a steamy pile of Republithug crap.  Prior to the summit this morning while on MSNBC, dumbass Steele claimed the Obama administrations dog and pony show today should have happened a year ago... you know, like it did!  Of course this idiot wouldn't know it, because like every other Repuke, he's had his head buried up to 3 feet or more in the proverbial sand.

dumbass Michael Steele: This whole dog and pony show that we're about to witness today is something that should have taken place a year ago, when the administration first came in last February and laid out its agenda for health care. This is how you should have started it - bipartisan, public forum, CSPAN, your cameras rolling to capture this and to capture, most importantly, what the American people want. And right now, they want us to start over, and I think we should.

TODD: Chairman Steele, in fairness to them, I mean, it was a year ago that they actually had a summit.

GUTHRIE: On March 5th.

TODD: And it wasn't just the legislative leaders. They brought in folks from the industry as well. And that one was televised. So...does that one not count? I'm just curious.

dumbass Michael Steele: Well, apparently it didn't. Because we don't have health care.  Uh huh dumb ass, and who's fault is that?  The party of no... that's who's fault

Now this just might be who Limbaugh was referring to when he repeatedly used the "R" word.  Western Prince William Del. Bob Marshall, R-13th, says disabled children are God’s punishment to women who have aborted their first pregnancy. He made that statement last Thursday at a press conference to oppose state funding for Planned Parenthood.

“The number of children who are born subsequent to a first abortion with handicaps has increased dramatically. Why? Because when you abort the first born of any, nature takes its vengeance on the subsequent children,” said Marshall, a Republican. “In the Old Testament, the first born of every being, animal and man, was dedicated to the Lord. There’s a special punishment Christians would suggest.”

Marshall was among more than 20 people, mostly Christian pastors and clergy, who gathered for the press conference in the General Assembly Building.



   
Its Mr. 5 Deferments

Dickless Cheney Hospitalized Again... with chest pains... undergoes yet another angioplasties.  DICK Cheney has had four heart attacks, starting when he was 37. He has had quadruple bypass surgery and two artery-clearing angioplasties. In 2001, he had a special pacemaker implanted in his chest. The pacemaker's battery was replaced last year, and then the entire device was replaced. I know, you're asking why replace the pacemaker, why not just replace HIM?  You know with an actual human being!

Oh please, pretty please, Dickless Cheny, don't die. Oh God, not yet... millions of Americans want you around at least long enough to stand trial for all your war crimes. And then, after a fair trial, well, you know the rest... God Speed.  Get well, we all would really enjoy watching you do the perp walk.  And lastly, go Cheney yourself DICK!
 

With G.O.P. Help, Senate Advances $15 Billion Jobs Bill

In a rare bipartisan breakthrough, the Senate pushed a $15 billion measure intended to spur job creation over a crucial preliminary obstacle Monday night after five Senate Republicans broke ranks to back consideration of the Democratic leadership initiative.  Read More:

Did I read this right... 5 Republicans voted with DEMS on the jobs bill and Dick Cheney has a heart?  Is the apocalypse upon us? 
SERIOUSLY, THE JOBS BILL GOT THROUGH? 

The bill which also includes a crackdown on offshore tax shelters... passed? That's a good thing because the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office estimates that it would lead to $8.7 billion in savings over the coming decade, but that does not take into account the money that would be used for highway construction.  Also rumor has it it would create or save 1.3 million jobs, largely through highway construction and other transportation projects. 

Senator Harry Reid said, "I hope this is the beginning of a new day here in the Senate. Whether this new day was created by the new Senator from Massachusetts or some other reason, I'm very, very happy that we were able to get this done. But there are some winners. Not any individual Senator, not Democrats or Republicans. The winners are small business people throughout this country." Encouraging isn't it?


The president keeps beating a dead horse. His big proposal today does NOT include a public option.  Yes, after all this time, he still is trying to be Mr. popularity and bend over backwards for what a few Republican votes?  No sir, so far you've gotten ZERO and there is nothing to indicate you won't continue getting ZERO, so what up with that?

So, does his proposal offer some new slant, some new progressive thinking?  No, instead it is the same BS that he hopes he can get 60 votes on... why? It's time to pass health care without the Republithugs. All we need is 51 votes and with a robust public option, they would have more than enough votes.   Why pray tell is this President so lame and stubborn?

Dear President Milquetoast Obama, insanity is repeating over and over again the same action that hasn't worked time and time again and expecting a different result.   C'mon Mr. President, what is your problem? I know you are not insane, so why keep trying the Bi-partisan route?  Barrack, why not finally do what the majority of your base and for that matter what the majority of Americans want... a real Public Option?


Water cooler chatter:  Republithug Sarah Palin the mouth that lies and LIES!
Add another chapter to the litany of hypocritical statements from 6 Pack Sarah Palin!

Remember when the half governor of Alaska warned unsuspecting Americans not once but as often as she could to the dangers of "death panels" as explained rather unsubstantiated and wide of the mark to us all on Sarah "Dimwit" Palin's Facebook page and while out on the campaign trail?

She was utterly distraught at the thought her grandson could be the next victim of "socialized medicine".

Well guess what? Recently released documents from the custody battle show clearly Tripp Palin Johnston has socialized health care through Indian Health Services and the Alaska Native Medical Center.

Palin's family has federally funded health care afforded to them... ah, but if you had it Barack Obama might kill you. And to think many white trash, redneck, uneducated and ill informed Americans still believe in this disaster of a human being?  Why, or better yet, HOW?

The great state of New Mexico Screws It Up As Always.

We had a chance to lead the nation in doing something positive, inspirational and good for the nation as a whole, but thanks to REPUBLITHUGS, the New Mexico legislature timed out. The New Mexico legislature adjourned for the year on Thursday without acting on a bill that would give preference to community banks and credit unions in bidding for contracts to handle state money.

 
CONTINUED AT TOP OF NEXT COLUMN.....

The bill, sponsored by Rep. Brian Egolf (D-Santa Fe), was inspired directly by the Move Your Money campaign. The NM State Rep estimated the bill could potentially take more than a billion dollars away from Bank of America and Wells Fargo.

The bill was sliding along with ease and effortlessly at first.  It actually passed the New Mexico House unanimously, and it even cleared two Senate committees and ultimately reached the floor.  But oddly,   time ran out before it could see a vote. Why?  Who's grubbing, hairy palms were greased? 

True, the state's constitution requires the legislature to adjourn at noon on the 30th day of its legislative session, which was Thursday. Still the Senate was set to take up the bill on Thursday, but Senate Republicans spent the dwindling hours of the session filibustering a bill that would have allowed judges to put first-time drug offenders in treatment programs instead of prison. 

Yes indeed, the New Mexico Republicans ran out the clock at the very end with a filibuster.  I know it's hard to believe.  I mean, wow, imagine that, Republithugs using a filibuster to derail meaningful actions.  And these fools want to know why they've been branded the party of NO!
 

In what may just be the understatement of the year, VP Joe Biden: says Washington is 'broken'.  'I've never seen it this dysfunctional,' the insightful vice president says. Friends, its comments like that that make you wonder if these people ALL live in a bubble.


Also a new poll says the Majority opposes the recent SCOTUS ruling. A whopping 80% of Americans are against allowing unlimited corporate campaign spending.  Yet, the rightwing stll wants to claim Americans want corporations to participate as citizens even though the Washington Post-ABC News poll says American from both parties overwhelmingly oppose the supremes' decision.

Lord only knows these same people who think the SCOTUS is right would agree with many TEXANS who think
dinos, humans shared earth.  Seriously. nearly 33% of Texans polled think the Flintstones are real... we lived and played with dinosaurs.  These sad people (51%) also disagree with the silly notion that humans evolved from earlier species.  Oh well, Texans also prefer Tex Mex food, when great New Mexico chile and SW cuisine is just over their border. 

morons with a cause
Oh I see by the signs in the tea party crowd, its ah... ah... never mind!


The Washington Times' has a great story you should read.  It's about the hypocritical GOP Senators and Congress critters that blasted the stimulus, but privately begged for their own pork. 

Sen. Christopher S. Bond regularly railed against President Obama's economic stimulus plan as irresponsible spending that would drive up the national debt. But behind the scenes, the Missouri Republican quietly sought more than $50 million from a federal agency for two projects in his state.

Mr. Bond was not alone. More than a dozen Republican lawmakers, while denouncing the stimulus to the media and their constituents, privately sent letters to just one of the federal government's many agencies seeking stimulus money for home-state pork projects.

The letters to the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), obtained through the Freedom of Information Act, expose the gulf between lawmakers' public criticism of the overall stimulus package and their private lobbying for projects close to home.

"It's not illegal to talk out of both sides of your mouth, but it does seem to be a level of dishonesty troubling to the American public," said Melanie Sloan, executive director of the watchdog group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington.

In a letter to Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack, Mr. Bond noted that one project applying to the USDA for stimulus money would "create jobs and ultimately spur economic opportunities."

He and other lawmakers make no apologies for privately seeking stimulus money after they voted against it and continue to criticize the plan: "I strongly opposed the stimulus, but the only thing that could make it worse would be if none of it returned to the taxpayers of Missouri," said Mr. Bond, who is retiring.

But watchdog groups say the lawmakers' public talk and private letters don't square, highlighting a side of government spending largely overshadowed by the "earmarking" process. While members of Congress must disclose their earmarks — or pet projects they slip into broader spending bills — the private funding requests they make in letters to agencies fall outside of the public's view.  Click here to read on.
 


DEMS who are actually not too bright and a little too far to the RIGHT:  Wow, did you see where Harold Ford has decided NOT to RUN against Kristen Gillibrand? He claims its because he thinks that the primary even tough he'd win would love the campaign with too little money against a well funded Republithug... and that the DEM hold would be so slim in Congress that there is NO need to risk it... or words to that affect.  Huh?  If he honestly feels there will be so many loses and he is the best candidate, why would he not run?  Once again slick Harold, we see through your bullshit. 

Well of course all this is... is just political speak for, "Oh damn, they figured out my masquerade... and NOW I can't convince them that suddenly I'm a liberal".
