Who's Fault??

For the record I agree with everyone who votes against spending $700 billion of our taxpayer dollars but I would like to talk about insane more of the same McCain for a moment. It was Republicans who voted against this disaster waiting to happen but that doesn't stop the moron from putting the blame on Obama and Pelosi who support this plan. Nevermind it was insane more of the same McCain who is in a big part responsible for this mess to begin with.

The truth

A few of quick things. Just wondering if the whole more of the same McCain and Bush getting Obama back to Washington for the financial mess that more of the same McCain was done to distract Obama from his debate preparations. Honestly neither one of them needed to be there and more of the same McCain has been absent from the Senate pretty much completely this year due to his campaining.

Goodbye to Yankee and Shea stadiums. I've been to both, Dodgers Stadium is 9 billion times better although my one trip to Yankee gave me the greatest thrill ever going to David Wells perfect game. Hard to believe Dodgers Stadium (and someone can correct me if I'm wrong on this) is like the 2nd or 3rd oldest stadium now which is a scary thought.

Last I found this on the Bill Press Show website and it is so true and how Obama is being treated vs more of the same McCain and Palin. (

I’m a little confused. Let me see if I have this straight…..

If you grow up in Hawaii, raised by your grandparents, you’re ‘exotic, different.’

Grow up in Alaska eating mooseburgers, a quintessential American story.

If your name is Barack you’re a radical, unpatriotic Muslim.

Name your kids Willow, Trig, and Track; you’re a maverick.

Graduate from Harvard law School and you are unstable.

Attend 5 different small colleges before graduating, you’re well grounded.

If you spend 3 years as a brilliant community organizer, become the first black President of the Harvard Law Review, create a voter registration drive that registers 150,000 new voters, spend 12 years as a Constitutional Law professor, spend 8 years as a State Senator representing a district with over 750,000 people, become chairman of the state Senate’s Health and Human Services committee, spend 4 years in the United States Senate representing a state of 13 million people while sponsoring 131 bills and serving on the Foreign Affairs, Environment and Public Works and Veteran’s Affairs committees, you don’t have any real leadership experience.

If your total resume is: local weather girl, 4 years on the city council, 6 years as the mayor of a town with less than 7,000 people, and 20 months as the governor of a state with only 650,000 people, then you’re qualified to become the country’s second highest ranking executive.

If you have been married to the same woman for 19 years while raising 2 beautiful daughters, all within Protestant churches, you’re not a real Christian.

If you cheated on your first wife with a rich heiress, and left your disfigured wife and married the heiress the next month, you’re a Christian.

If you teach responsible, age appropriate sex education, including the proper use of birth control, you are eroding the fiber of society.

If, while governor, you staunchly advocate abstinence only, with no other option in sex education in your state’s school system while your unwed teen daughter ends up pregnant, you’re very responsible.

If your wife is a Harvard graduate laywer who gave up a position in a prestigious law firm to work for the betterment of her inner city community, then gave that up to raise a family, your family’s values don’t represent America’s.

If your husband is nicknamed ‘First Dude’, with at least one DWI conviction and no college education, who didn’t register to vote until age 25 and once was a member of a group that advocated the secession of Alaska from the USA, your family is extremely admirable.

By the way if you wanna look up something that again proves what hipocrites the right-wing media is look up Bill O'Reilly and Jamie Lynn Spears look at the anger he directs toward her mother and wonder why he isn't equally as angry at Sarah Palin!

Debate Thoughts

Some thoughts on last night's debate:

1) How many more times will more of the same McCain call Obama stupid? (code words naive and he doesn't understand)

2) Both continued to make their talking points and said really nothing new

3) Does more of the same McCain think Obama is so far beneath him that he couldn't address him directly?

4) How come more of the same really broke in when Obama was speaking but wouldn't let Obama do the same?

5) I would not be surprised if Palin all the sudden had an illness to break next weeks debate with Biden cause if you saw her during the Katie Couric interview this week she looked well out of their league and what will happen when someone with experience takes her to task on the things she has wrongly said?

Don't Give In

Error by Obama: He is going to the White House to meet with Bush and more of the same McCain who will use this as a photo op and against Obama.

Error by more of the same McCain: Trying to delay the Presidential debate tomorrow. Like Obama said if you are President you need to handle multiple situations. To sane people it shows how more of the same McCain is not ready and not mentally equipped to be President.

Error #2 by more of the same McCain: Deciding, after being out of Washington for more then a year and missing more votes then Obama, that he needs to go to Washington now. Remember he is a huge cause of this mess.

I hope Obama doesn't give in to more of the same McCain and postpone the debate. If more of the same McCain doesn't show up then it should be a question and answer with Obama. This is nothing but a stunt by more of the same McCain. I hope people realize that. And remember more of the same McCain has nothing to do with the negotiations so he will accomplish nothing.

You know really thinking about it since more of the same McCain wants to postpone the debate to the night of the Vice Presidential debate he just really doesn't want to send out this alleged pitbull with lipstick (her words not mine) to get destroyed by Biden.

Last thought in the idiots speech last night he blamed instead of the banks which gave out loans to people who should not have received them he blamed solely the American people. Remember that come election day.

Trickle Up

Since Republicans have the phony theory of trickle down economics which never works, where tax breaks and advantages for people at the top of the income scale will trickle down to those who are at the bottom, I'd like propose the exact opposite. I'd like to propose trickle up economics. Here is what I mean:

Instead of giving $700 billion of taxpayer dollars to failed industries on Wall Street which we will never see, how about paying off people's mortgages? Here is what that will accomplish:

A) People will pay their debts (which ultimately is a good thing that we wouldn't be as much as a debtor nation).

B) People will save money for there future. People could save for retirements or college for their children and rely less on government programs which would create smaller government.

C) People will spend. That will be the thing that does things like create profits for businesses which in turn creates jobs.

Just my view.

Broken Record

I can predict what Bush is going to say tonight since he is nothing but a broken record and repeats himself over and over again. He is going to say the following: Give me what I want or else. That's what he has said time and time again.

By the way I see where more of the same McCain wants to "postpone" the debate scheduled for Friday and he all of the sudden wants to go to Washington for one of the few times he has been there this year. If I were Obama with all the momentum right now he should tell more of the same McCain no. Remember more of the same McCain is a huge reason (not the whole reason) why we are in this nightmare and I hope Obama reminds people that.

Trust Who?

How are we supposed to trust Sec. Paulson when he was CEO of a failing bank himself? Yes he was CEO of Goldman Sachs.

And the top adviser for the more of the same McCain campaign Ricky Davis was a lobbyist for Fanny Mae and Freddie Mac. Bet you didn't know that either.

We should really trust these people?

A couple of questions

Just a couple of questions and observations:

How come you can find $700 billion dollars of taxpayer money to bailout Wall Stree but you can't find a dime for Universal Heathcare?

And also is this yet another reason NEVER to privatize social security cause that would be another disaster waiting to happen?

Why doesn't the bailout of taxpayer dollars do anything to really to help taxpayers?

Looking things up

If you look a few posts down you will see a discussion between Robert and I. I point out how deregulation does not work he wrongly thinks it does buying the phony Republican line how it creates competition when in reality it does not. I point out several industries that were deregulated and how monopolies were created.

One of the industries I said was deregulated was the cable industry. He said it wasn't but to be accurate I looked it up cause if he is right I am man enough to admit it. I found since I looked it up the Telecommunications Act of 1996 which DEREGULATED THE CABLE INDUSTRY.

So Robert my good friend I guess I do know what I'm talking about after all at least in this case as well as every industry that has been deregulated.

How to make a scandal

If you wanna know how to make a scandal out of something that isn't I present Republican Vice President Sarah Palin. You see she was all set to give testimony about "troopergate" where she wanted her ex brother in law fired for divorcing her sister. Simple enough. No she decided to get political and pull out cause the final report was due a little before the election. I wanna bring up two points regarding this:

A) Honestly there is a long history of people getting fired for their boses not liking them for whatever reason whether it's personal or job related. That's fine I honestly don't have a problem with that.

B) By not testifying she is making this more of a scandal then it really is. The committee is not bias it is made of two Democrats and two Republicans. Again she just has to say what happened and that's it.

But as a typical Republican she decides to be decitful. What a loser.

Just wodering

How come the media considers more of the same McCain a maverick when he votes with Bush at least 90% of the time?

How come Obama is considered an elitest when more of the same McCain doesn't even know how many homes he owns?

How come the media doesn't really call more of the same McCain (or Bush for that matter) when he says the economy is fine when anyone with half a brain knows it isn't?

How come Obama is critisized regarding a preacher and a serman he wasn't at BUT Sarah Palin is at a church that preeches hate and more of the same McCain has endorsements from preechers who spread hate and there is no response?

How come no one calls out more of the same McCain for saying how he wanted a clean campaign when he has done nothing but attack AND offer nothing but a continuation of Bush's policies which as we know DON'T WORK!

Now for some non politics:
Has there been a player that has made more of an impact from a mid-season trade then Manny Ramirez has with the Dodgers?

Should he be considered for MVP?

Did UCLA gets their butts whiped on Saturday or what?

DID USC look impresive against Ohio State Saturday or what?

Is the Kansas City Chiefs the worst team in professional Football?

Or is it the Rams?

Is it me or is it really selfish for Kobe Bryant NOT to have the surgery on his finger when if it gets worse in the long run he will hurt the Lakers?

And isn't this his option year of the contract?

Just wondering

Like Father Like Son......

Making a couple of comparisons from papa Bush to current Bush.

Papa Bush: Spent billions of taxpayer dollars to bail out the Savings and Loan Industry (including the current President) with the aid of more of the same John McCain and the Keating 5

Current Bush: Spent billions of taxpayer dollars to bail out the mortgage industry with the aid of more of the same McCain

Papa Bush: Dealt poorly with the destruction of Hurricane Andrew in Florida

Current Bush: Dealt even more poorly with the destruction of Hurricane Katrina in Louisiana

Papa Bush: Attacked Iraq for oil

Current Bush: Attacked Iraq for oil

Stunning simularities huh?

An Add Idea

Here is an add that Obama should make:

Show all the economic failures of George Bush, give Bush quotes saying how the economy is fine then morph him into more of the same McCain who said yesterday "the fundamentals of the economy is strong" and the chief economic advisor for more of the same McCain Phil Graham saying how we are in a "imaginary recession". Then have the announcer say something like "they broke it you can't trust them to fix it"

Just my idea.

Where are they?

So we know about the disasterous train wreck in Chatsworth on Friday (about 1 mile from my work) I hope the reports are false that the engineer was texting some train enthusiasts in the area instead of paying attention to a red light which would have easily prevented this tragedy.

I really thought there were other safeguards in place where something like that would be prevented. Metrolink if the reports are true will get their heads sued off and possibly even be forced to go under if it's true.

Just Remember

Remember the grim anniversary today. 9/11/01. Remember how Bush was told it was going to happen and chose to do nothing. Remember how Republicans have used this to their advantage in every election, how Bush has used PHONY threats to scare people into getting nightmares like the invasion of privacy act and remember how this should be a reason NEVER to vote for a Republican again (remember they were in charge of the country) and remember all those who died so Bush can get his war.

More of the same part 2

Didn't more of the same McCain say at the beginning of the Presidential Race he claimed (which I knew was crap) he was going to run a clean campaign? Well that lasted two seconds. The latest is the UN-NECESSARY UN-WARRENTED attack on Barack Obama when he made an HONEST statement regarding more of the same's economic policy but it turns into a right-wing smear.

The quote that Obama used was "lipstick on a pig" which was used to describe more of the same's ecnomic policy and nothing else. But no the right wing claims how that's an attack on Palin which in complete crap!

Just some facts using google (happy 10th birthday by the way) I found five different times more of the same McCain used THE EXACT SAME TERM in the past year describing Hillary Clinton DIRECTLY but nothing has been said of that regarding more of the same's DIRECT ATTACK on her. I even found the big Dick Cheney using that SAME PHRASE regarding John Kerry's policies. So again since the press is conservative they ignore THOSE FACTS.

And again it shows that more of the same HAS NO ORIGIANL IDEAS so they do the ONLY THING they know how and that is attack. They have no plans for America and no vision of the future like Obama has!

So once again more of the same has to use smear tactics instead of talking issues.

Tuesday, September 09, 2008

More of the same

So Sarah Palin is MORE CORRUPT then more of the same McCain. She has taken money from the oil companies (like McCain) and I will have some more stuff regarding her religion later which is absolutely fair game since the right attacked Obama.

Monday, September 08, 2008

I don't see it

I don't understand why anyone would vote for more of the same McCain. He is the most pathetic candidate I have seen (even more so then Michael Dukakis) he has no original ideas and would continue to head our country on a path of self-destruction that Bush has started us on.

Just say it already

One of things I keep hearing from more of the same McCain and the right-wing media is how people can't vote Obama because he is "different". You know I just wish they would say what we all know he means by that and just get it out in the open already. He is saying people shouldn't vote for Obama because he is African-American.

At least if it's out in the open we can have an honest discussion about it and everyone's true feelings will come out.

Another Joke

What a joke a Palin's speech was. I realize Republicans like her, more of the same McCain have no original ideas of their own so they attack Obama's. Obama is the American Dream and is proof how every person has the chance to become President and the fact the Republicans continuously attack his life shows just how jealous and petty they are!

Wednesday, September 03, 2008


Has anyone noticed something lacking at the Republican Convention. I have. I noticed how lack of African-Americans, lack of Asian-Americans, lack of Mexican-Americans just an overall lack of diversity which is something you had at the Democratic Convention.

So if you want the party of old white guys you vote Republican.

Tuesday, September 02, 2008


What a horrible choice from more of the same McCain for Vice President. I understand he is trying to get disgruntled Clinton supporters but if he wanted to pick a strong Republican woman for Vice President why not Sec. Rice or Sen. Snow from Maine or Kay Baily Hutchinson from Texas.

Doesn't that also negate the argument from more of the same McCain about how inexperienced Obama is cause she has even less. I mean come on Los Angeles County has more people then Alaska.

It's already starting with the scandals she already has so she must be a Republican I'm just waiting for a sex scandal involving her since the Republican Party is the party of sex scandals.
