Who's fault??

I saw today where Bush actually blamed Congress (Democrats) for the horrible economy. Funny how it was HIS policies that got us into the mess we are currently in and he is proposing NOTHING to help common people who are hurting the most. Let's here any idea that doesn't benefit his buddies in industry. He doesn't have any cause he doesn't want nor care about the people who need it most!

Again if I hear one more Republican who says who voodoo economics works despite this another obvious example that it doesn't I want whatever they are smoking!

Two things

I'd like to talk about two things that are related. They might not seem that way but they are. I have two links:



Sorry for the long link on the 2nd one but that's how it is. Both of these links show a clear connection on how not only does the GOP not want you to vote but they do not want a paper trail after you vote. If there is a more obvious attempt to create voter fraud by the Republican Party I don't know what is.

You need to see this video of how Bush is treating our soldiers. Yes this is his fault and it's disgusting. This is at Ft. Bragg


Again if you vote for McCain you will get the same treatment for our brave men and women.

Wrong views

I looked at the headline in Bill O'Idiot's column in today's Los Angeles Daily News and I thought my gody I must be dreaming I will agree with him. The headline read "Let's stop rewarding big oil companies"

But then as you read the op-ed it is his usual wrong view. His solution will not hurt big oil companies but reward them further. His solution: More drilling for oil. That is how we got to this point in our energy crisis. The solution is funding more money in finding alternatives to oil. That's the only way we will end our dependency. Hopefully when Obama or Clinton get into office next year they will find that (mind you I'm not saying they will that I hope they will) but we also know that more of the same McCain won't!

3 Years Ago

Wow it's weird. I just realized it's been three years since I started this blog. Time flies. I've learned a lot while on this blog and hopefully will continue to learn. As always I appreciate everyone who comes here and whether you agree with me or not please continue to voice your opinions.

Thanks again.

What is enough

I read a letter in today's USA Today stating that the fact t 4000 troops who have died is not enough reason to withdraw our troops out of Iraq. I wonder what is?

Is it the reasons we were given (all false) to go there?

Is it the cost to taxpayers?

Is it the Iraqi people don't want us there?

Is it the fact Al Queda was never there until we invaded and occupied Iraq?

Is it our troops are not properly armed in Iraq?

Is it the fact the MAJORITY of American people don't want us in Iraq?

I have so many MORE reasons to end our occupation of Iraq I can type for hours.

Does She Know??

Just wondering when Hillary Clinton brought up Rocky the other day and how he fought and fought and never gave up I was wondering if she knew Rocky lost in the first film??

Just wondering

As I see where 69% of people disapprove of Bush I was wondering why ANYONE would vote for more of the same McCain who has said he is going to continue Bush's unpopular policies?

Monday, April 21, 2008

Just remember

Whether it's Clinton or Obama just remember to vote tomorrow if you are in Pa. It's incredibly important so don't forget.

Most important

I always find this question interesting because I get a lot of different answers on this:

What is the most important right we have?

For me, more then anything separation of Church and State. I say this because I don't want religion forced on me nor would I want my religion forced on you. (For the record I am Jewish) I feel those who try to force their religion on me are worse then scum. Again that's my feeling. That doesn't mean I don't believe in god and don't worship in my way but that should be private. Completely private.

I'd like to know what you think.

I'm a little confused why so much attention is being put on the Pope visiting the United States. Isn't this the same organization that just brushed aside how many millions to cover up priests who molest children? Really never saying anything about it just brushing it aside?

New Info

Yesterday there was breaking news here in Los Angeles: We are going to have a large Earthquake in the next 30 years.

I've been told that since I was a kid. I understand it's going to happen. I understand it might happen sooner then later. I am as prepared as I can be but what I was hoping for (which I know is a long way away from happening) is if there is specific info. I guess they gave what fault lines are more probable and that's something BUT I think people are too complacent regarding earthquakes after all the last big Earthquake in Southern California was 14 years ago when we had the Northridge Earthquake.

I know it's a matter of when but how exact.

Why we are in a recession

Even though fearless leader Bush denies it we are clearly in a recession. It's very simple why. Something Bush knows obviously nothing about and that's economics. Here is why we are in a recession:

A) Prices for goods are higher then when he took office

B) Wages have not gone up equal to the rise in goods

And we are in a recession.

It's that easy.

The truth

Robert you had a quote on your website that applies here that I know I'm paraphrasing so if you can give me the exact quote I'd appreciate it. The quote was something like if you make them angry your making them think. I guess that's what Barrack Obama is doing that and doing that quite well.

He made an excellent, accurate statement and as always instead of the discussion being about the statement the discussion is is Obama an elitist. That answer is obviously no and I feel he is more on the pulse of small town America then Clinton or more of the same McCain. His statement should be talked about not if he is an elitist but no one seems to be doing that. Yeah people are bitter. People blame everyone but who is responsible (and again both parties are accurately equally responsible). People are hurting. And that what was the statement.

Here is his statement

You go into some of these small towns in Pennsylvania, and like a lot of small towns in the Midwest, the jobs have been gone now for 25 years and nothing’s replaced them. And they fell through the Clinton administration, and the Bush administration, and each successive administration has said that somehow these communities are gonna regenerate and they have not. So it’s not surprising then that they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.


Who should be in

Everyone knows I'm a huge music fan. I love watching the inductions to the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame but I was looking at the list and noticed a few names I feel should be in that aren't (as of yet). Here is my opinion (feel free to add or dispute anyone you wish. And this is according to the criteria that they have which is located at http://www.rockhall.com/inductees/induction-process/)

Eddie Money. Probably the most controversial on the list but with hits ranging from Baby Hold on to Two Tickets to Paradise to Take Me Home Tonight among many others should be inducted.

The Moody Blues


Robert Palmer

Don Henley. Just as good as a solo artist as a member of the legendary Eagles (who are already in the Hall of Fame)


Peter Gabriel

Phil Collins

Pat Benatar

Quincy Jones (obviously as a producer)

And one more controversial one but again qualifies under the criteria: Weird Al Yankovic.

By the way the full list of entries is located here: http://www.rockhall.com/inductees/inductee-list/

I read an article in the Los Angeles Times and the article states how are old friend Osama Bin Laden(remember him) is doomed and is within our grasp.

Now I'm not sure where the writer of that article has been but George Bush has said several times that he doesn't think about the man responsible for the 9/11 attacks and it's not a priority for him. Bush doesn't want the attacker on 9/11 to be caught and he doesn't care.


That is a link to the press conference where Bush said Bin Laden isn't important.

I guess all those who died on 9/11 died for nothing and Bush doesn't want to avenge their deaths.

When will this come around?

Just wondering when John "more of the same" McCain will get asked how he feels about abortion and a woman's right to choose. If you look at his voting record you will clearly know this alleged "maverick" is very right wing.


That's a link I was sent by my friend Tom that shows the more you look at more of the same McCain the more toward the right he is. Wonder when the alleged liberal media will call him out on that!

He lied

Why doesn't Bush just admit he lied to us about Iraq. There is really nothing he can lose since he is already the most hated President of all time!

The truth is he doesn't care one bit about our troops. That's the reason why he doesn't want them to come home ever. He is nothing but a coward and if anyone can defend this psychopath I DARE you.

There was no honorable reason to go to Iraq. None at all. It's time Bush told the truth about that!

Of course

I just figured why Bush is in such a rush to get another free trade agreement, this time with Columbia. Columbia is well known for the drug trade and since Bush is a drug addict it makes sense. Of course why else would he want a trade agreement with that country.

Betray us

After watching alleged General Betrayus (not a typo) today just push back yet again any hope to bring our soldiers home from our occupation of Iraq and watching Bush (not coincidently) give a medal of honor to a soldier he murdered and almost look sincere it's just a sick thing to watch. It's sick to watch how he just plays the public as idiots and what's worse is the right-wing mainstream media never seems to pick up on this. It's just sad how Bush has misled this country and if more of the same McCain slimes his way into the White House it's going to get worse.

Guessing who is going to be Vice President

Right now candidates will be choosing who the Vice President choices should be. It's an important decision (especially for more of the same McCain) but let me give an idea who is on each one's short list:

Condoleeza Rice. I think she would be a good choice for him cause she would be a hit with the right wing. Would continue his policies (since his policies are the same as Bush) and would come across strong.

Alan Greenspan. I think he would be an interesting choice cause by more of the same McCain's own admission he doesn't know about the economy.

Joe Lieberman. If more of the same McCain wants more independent voters he would pick the Democratic turncoat in Lieberman.

Mike Huckabee. If more of the same McCain wants to go after the religious right he would pick him.

Mitt Romney. Has a huge wallet and that would be a plus for more of the same McCain.

Now for Clinton/Obama if they don't pick each other.

John Edwards. Solid heathcare plan would be a plus for either. Is an expert campaigner and honestly would be the best prepared if something awful should happen to Clinton or Obama.

Bill Richardson. Great choice especially if they want to court Latino Voters

Chris Dodd. Strong on Defense. Well experienced.

Wesley Clark. Ex-General. Lots of military experience. Strong choice.

Evan Bayh. Indiana Senator would help in the midwest area

Al Gore. I know this is a longshot but a choice of him would energize the Democratic Party even more then it is now.

Eating Crow Again

Everyone knows I'm a U.C.L.A. fan and am eating crow yet again. Obviously I give credit to Memphis they were clearly the better team yesterday and were a better team then I gave them credit for all year but I just don't understand. Oh well at least they did better then U.S.C.

Another Reminder

After seeing yesterday John "more of the same" McCain march in a parade honoring Dr. Martin Luther King I think we need a reminder that he WAS OPPOSED to the creation the holiday honoring him.


Just a continued reminder of how much a loser this person is.

This story should scare the hell out of everyone.


It shows how FAA whistleblowers were threatened with their jobs for reporting the truth. The truth that the planes you fly in are NOT safe. And the defective planes were allowed to fly putting hundreds if not thousands of people in danger. If that doesn't scare you nothing will.

Sad part is the Bush filled Supreme Court recently ruled that employers COULD retaliate against employees so they are right to fear for their jobs.

Thanks George for keeping the people who do the work in mind.

A topical question

Is it ok to torture terrorists to get information? That is the subject of a 2003 memo by then White House Council David Woo who said absolutely that laws do not apply. Woo said "If a government defendant were to harm an enemy combatant during an interrogation in a manner that might arguably violate a criminal prohibition, he would be doing so in order to prevent further attacks on the United States by the al Qaeda terrorist network," Yoo wrote. "In that case, we believe that he could argue that the executive branch's constitutional authority to protect the nation from attack justified his actions." The following has a link to the memo.


I THINK of course that it is wrong to torture anyone but if you read this idiots reasons in the memo it's truly bizarre. And a question I will ask which never gets answered for some reason when our troops get captured and they get tortured as we do will you be pissed off even though the reasons are the same? And since Bush authorized torture does that make him to put able to be put on trial for war crimes as that is clearly a violation of the Geneva Convention?


Sad day as one of my favorite hangouts, Yankee Doodles, is going to close it's doors on Monday April 7th. It's sad cause that was the only real sports bar in the West San Fernando Valley. The reason why it's closing is Westfield, the owner of local malls Topanga Plaza and the Prominade, wants to create a huge monstrosity which connects the two separate malls into one huge mall. Sad.
