I would like to thank our governator. He terminated unemployment 10 %. What irks me more then anything is it's the people at the bottom who pay for the bad decisions from the people at the top who not only get to keep their jobs but get bonuses from those bad decisions. Really I would think that companies would save more money if they fired more people at the top instead of the people making minimum wage at the bottom. But I have logic.

Arrest him

Shawn Hannity needs to be arrested for making a direct threat on President Obama. There is a poll on his website advocating overthrowing the elected PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES. You can't even joke about something like that. It's scary cause you always have nutjobs who will believe and try to do as Hannity and so many other right-wingers want. And you know they do. I won't link to the poll cause I don't wanna give help to someone advocating TREASON like Hannity is!

Another thing that's directly related to this treason is how there are more hate groups who are blaming Obama for the economy that he inhereted from Bush. Pathetic but what do you expect from Republicans.

Two More Notes on Tuesday

So I finally got around to watching the Republican response from President Obama's speech on Tuesday and I really have one thing to say:

If Bobby Jindal is the Republicans best chance in 2012 they are in big trouble.

He was horrible. He was not ready for primetime and it showed. Sarah Palin looked better then him and if they both run it will be an easy repeat for Democrats.

Also wasn't it nice to be talked to as adults as President Obama did instead of like children as Bush did?

Do They Know?

I wonder if MSNBC knows that the election is over and Obama won? During last nights speech they were comparing Obama supporters and McCain supporters like during the debates. Again the election happened LAST NOVEMBER so crap like that doesn't need to happen anymore cause Republicans don't matter.

Tuesday, February 24, 2009


If anyone saw PRESIDENT OBAMA'S speech tonight it was so refreshing. Refreshing to hear common-sense ideas for our country, refreshing to hear proposal's that actually benefit common people instead of the wealthy and refreshing to hear common-sense ideas about what oru place should be in the world.

So refreshing from the previous administration.

But it's clear a few ideas Republicans won't accept since they don't care about common people just the rich snobs and anyone who saw the speech saw this too

Affordable college for everyone. No fanfare from the Republicans who sat there
Better more affordable health care for everyone. Silence for the Republicans
No no bid contracts for Iraq. The silence from Republicans was golden as Halliburton won't get to kill anymore troops

As I said I like watching Republicans squirm.

Did you see?

Did anyone notice yesterday something that President Obama held a "fiscal responsibility summit" yesterday?

Boy it's nice to have someone actually talking and who is going to take action unlike something we had the last 8 years with the free spending Republicans who ruined our country.

Running Scared

The funniest thing I've heard recently is how scared Republicans are of the "fairness doctrine" even though I've not heard anything from the Obama Administration about bringing it back. I've heard the fear in voices from people like drug-addict Limbaugh and Hannity just at the mere thought of having (god-forbid) equal voices on the air.

Personally I would love to have options of my listening to talk radio. I don't think it will happen but just the thought of these know-nothing idiots squirming makes me happy.

Three Questions

Where President Obama is raising the troop level in Afghanistan I would like three questions answered that we never got from Bush which is why we haven't achieved victory there:

1) What is the mission in Afghanistan
2) What would be considered victory
3) What is the exit strategy

I think before we send more troops we need those answers.

Their own desires

I see where the REPUBLICAN Governors of Mississippi, Louisiana and Alaska are threatening to refuse the money from the stimulus package. What these three people have in common is they are interested in running for President in 2012. Honestly that will hurt if not end all of their chances because I can see the ads that Democrats will rightly run against them showing how many jobs were not created based on the Republicans egos, how many homes were lost, how many projects not started. It will be a beautiful thing.

Meanwhile the Governors are putting their own needs instead of those for their states. Pathetic but what else is new from the Republican party.

What a shock

I'd like to bring out the two latest Republican double-standards. First I present Kit Bond (R, Mo.). He sent out the following press release:

Last week, Bond led a bipartisan group of Senators in introducing an amendment to help provide needy families affordable housing. Bond’s amendment provides $2 billion to fund low-income housing tax credit (LIHTC) projects that have been stalled by the financial credit crisis. As part of the Democrats’ spending bill now signed into law, the Senate unanimously accepted Bond’s provision. […]

This provision will have a real impact in Missouri, especially for low-income, working families in need of safe and affordable housing. … Bond’s amendment will save more than 700 housing units and create 3,000 new jobs in Missouri.

Now I really wouldn't have an issue with this BUT Bond voted AGAINST THE STIMULUS. He is a typical Republican taking credit for something he voted against. He shouldn't receive any benefits from the stimulus.

2nd I present Ms. Palin. You remember her. It's actually sadly hard to forget her since she won't let her 15 minutes expire. She was ordered to pay taxes on property she was using. Just wondering why she is still Gov of Alaska when not paying taxes disqualified Tom Daschle from becoming Secretary of Health and Human services. Why is there no call from the same Republicans for her resignation? Also why is it none of our business on what she owes BUT we had to know what Daschle owed?

Again just the usual double-standards from Republicans.

Issues vs. Personal

One of the main differences between Robert and I (funny outside the website we're good friends) is I stick with issues but instead of disagreeing with me and making an intelligent argument why Robert would rather go with a personal attack against me. He doesn't like the fact that I blame Republicans for the state of our country right now even though they have been in charge since the 1990's when they seized Congress and the Senate on the phony contract on America.

The best example on that other then a few posts down where Robert's latest feeble attempt to smear me is when I made a comment (it's in the archives) about how horrible it would be for our country if our auto industry went down and I pointed out how it's simple union busting. Robert instead of making an argument why I'm wrong on that went on to attack the fact that I drive a Japanese car. Which I do but if he bothered to actually read my post nowhere did I say you had to buy American because you have a choice to buy whatever you chose but, as usual for Robert, made absolutely no argument what-so-ever against my point.

I figure there are a couple of reasons why:
A) Robert can't make an argument and would rather attack me
B) Robert won't make an argument and would rather attack me
C) Robert agrees with what I say and is too proud to admit it and would rather attack me
D) Robert really doesn't understand the issues I talk about and just attacks me

Either way Robert also questioned why I attack Republicans with such venom. Really Robert how would you feel if you have been called un-American if you don't blindly support Bush as I have been the past 8 years. How would you feel if you have been called un-patriotic as I have if you don't support Iraq? How would you feel if you feel if you have been told I don't support our troops as I have been since I disagree with Bush? I would not say anyone is unpatriotic if they disagree with President Obama and I would never expect anyone to support everything Obama will do in the next 4 to 8 years. And Robert keep in mind and something you really don't talk about I will happily agree with any Republican that has an idea I like and again if you would bother to look at my site you will see examples. You will also see examples of times I disagree with Democrats. Yes my attention is on Republicans but they deserve it for how our country is right now. And yet they still offer the same ideas that got us where we are. In other words THEY DON'T WORK!

And really Robert as you know me personally you would know how I've been outsourced twice during the Bush years and I've gone from making a decent living to struggling to get by every month. You think I want to live where I am? I don't I have to. I have real reason cause it's Republican policies that lead to this. I have real reasons to hate these people.

So really Robert I guess it all comes down to this. If you want to talk issues fine. If you, like the typical Republican you are, wanna to do smears that's fine I fight back I don't take bull$shit especially from someone who doesn't make a point otherwise.

Robert I would love to have an intelligent argument on the issues. I really would but if you want to go the low road you seem to forget I know you too and I'll be very happy to go round for round with you


So Alex Rodriguez issued his phony apology yesterday. Fine as I said it doesn't bother me in the least what he chose to do with his own body. What does bother me is Bud Selig saying how he tried to ban steroids since 1995 and he was fought by the union which is a lie. He, like most of baseball, enjoyed the huge home run derby between McGwire and Sosa in 1998 and he probably wouldn't have done anything unless Congress pressured him. And the fact is as an owner he knew steroid use was going on and turned the other way.

But I do have a question: Why hasn't anyone called the former owner of the Texas Rangers George Bush on that? He had to know what was going on and he is just as guilty because he looked the other way like everyone else.

Excuse Me

The link shows more of the same McCain complaining how President Obama HAS NOT been bi-partisan. How dare he. President Obama met many times with Republicans wanting to hear their ideas and they offered none. The one who didn't offer anything is the Republican Party, as usual.

One more thing. In terms of releasing the stimulus money if anyone voted against it they shouldn't receive any money. It's really that easy cause obviously their districts don't need it. I'm talking Democrats and Republicans because I would love to hear them explain to the people they are hurting why they chose not to help those in need.

And for people like Robert who don't like it refuse the check they are going to get. Obviously you are doing fine to so let people who need it receive it.

HOW DARE the California Leglislature have the nerve to give 1 billion dollars of TAX BREAKS to CORPORATIONS while RAISING TAXES on gas, vehicle fees and sales tax. HOW DARE ARNOLD, who ran on the fact that Gray Davis wanted to raise the vehicle fees and swore up and down he would never do that, agree to this disaster. HOW DARE REPUBLICANS, who recalled Gray Davis on the vehicle fees have the NERVE to give these tax breaks to the people WHO DON'T DESERVE THIS! F*CK you Republicans who agreed to this nightmare and if you think your jobs are safe you are going to lose your next election! And I'm singling out Republicans cause solely on the recall.

The Latest

In the latest attempt to embarass President Obama Republican Sen Gregg dropped out of being nominated for Commerce Secretary. I hope this is the last straw for Obama as Republicans do not in any circumstance want to help him or the country in any way shape or form. I understand his desire for bi-partisanship but Republicans don't care.

Talking Baseball

I don't understand Dodgers owner Frank McCourt. He has a huge tv contract. He has the money to get ballplayers and well doesn't. It's horrible. I mean the Dodgers dropped at least $60 million in payroll for no reason. They draw fans. They get money from the tv contract. There is absolutely no excuse.

This year they could have made an effort to get C.C. Sabathia, who wanted to be here in Los Angeles, they chose not to. They are playing games with Manny Ramirez when they shouldn't and the alternatives they had in mind, Adam Dunn and Bobby Abreau have signed elsewhere. I guarentee they will not be successful if they don't sign him. I know what you get with Ramirez but they need him.

On that thought the pitching is suspect at best. Billignsly is coming off a broken leg. Kuroda looked decent at times but still has question marks, can they rely in Kershaw? Claudio Vargas? Jeff Weaver??

Really they should have re-signed Derek Lowe more then anything. You know you get a guy who eats innings and is reliable.

I think it's going to be a long year.

All the sudden?

When Bush seized the White House in 2000 you had the Republicans throwing out their alleged fiscal responsibility (which we know is an absolute scam to begin with) and gave Bush approval for the tax cuts for the wealthy and the Iraq War which has lead us to where we are today. In complete debt and in a depression.

Now we have a Democrat who is trying to fix Bush's mess and all the sudden the Republicans have become the just say no party. All the sudden they are what they claim to be since they are not in charge anymore.

And by just saying no Republicans are saying no to President Obama and are not offering any new ideas as usual.

Isn't that the definition of being a hypocrite?

Double Standard

Can someone tell me why David Vitter is still in the Senate? Let's take a look at the double standard in the right-wing media. First you have Democrat Elliot Spitzer of New York who had to resign for having sex with an escort. You also have John Edwards who had an affair and took all sorts of heat for it (mind you I'm not saying they didn't deserve it). But you have Republican David Vitter of Lousiana who also had sex with an escort but still is sitting in the Senate. You also had Republican Larry Craig who had male sex in a bathroom who also was able to serve out his term. Nothing happened to them the alleged liberal media never called for anything to happen to the Republicans but called for the heads of the Democrats (insert pun here) So I guess if you are a Republican you are allowed to have sex with hookers or affairs but if you are a Democrat you aren't. Again more proof of the double standard by the right-wing media.

Again these people claim to be the party of morals.


Isn't it refreshing to have a President who actually answers questions (unlike George Bush) who will go to places that didn't vote for him (unlike George Bush) will take questions with those who disagree with him (unlike George Bush) and actually speaks the English Language (unlike George Bush) and who talks straight with the American People (unlike George Bush). I think it's refreshing and he made the Republicans look like complete amateurs yesterday. Thank you President Obama.

Moving on

So Alex Rodriguez admitted he used steroids. To me, like using pot, that's no big deal. Other then himself who has he really hurt and really hasn't he helped the game with his great play? In the end it's his body that's going to live with the consequences of his choice as long as he is not hurting anyone else now if he ever does then the book should be thrown at him at that point.

And also these tests were supposed to be kept confidential I think Rodriguez should sue Sports Illistrated, the baseball union, major league baseball and all those responsible for the leak. I have a few thoughts on who it is but can't really speak cause I might be sued.


God bless the Republican Party. Seriously. Rep. Pete Sessions (R,Tx.) actually compared them to the Taliban. You know the terrorist organization that Bush overthrew in Afghanistan. Yes them.

Insurgency, we understand perhaps a little bit more because of the Taliban,” Sessions said during a meeting yesterday with Hotline editors. “And that is that they went about systematically understanding how to disrupt and change a person’s entire processes. And these Taliban — I’m not trying to say the Republican Party is the Taliban. No, that’s not what we’re saying. I’m saying an example of how you go about [sic] is to change a person from their messaging to their operations to their frontline message. And we need to understand that insurgency may be required when the other side, the House leadership, does not follow the same commands, which we entered the game with.”

Nevermind how many time Obama spend how many times trying to get Republican votes for the stimulus package they are the ones being obstructionists. Sessions is just sick which is yet another reason why Republicans aren't significant right now.

In all honesty it's very simple. If he is saying Republicans are terrorists then they should all be arrested and sent to whatever prisons we have left, tortured, held without legal representation for as long as President Obama sees fit. It's the only logical thing to do since Sessions said Republicans are terrorists.

On a serious note the one thing is obvious. If anyone doesn't vote for the stimulus package that means that their states are not hurting and they don't need any of the money. So they go to the end of the line in terms of receiving any of the funding that will be available and the Senators, Representatives will have to go to their constituents and explain why their states, counties, cities have no money. See how that would play out.

Double Standard

You know I always find the right-wing being their usual hypocritical self. In 2001 the Republicans had no problems giving $1.3 trillion dollars to the wealthy which has lead us to where we are now in terms of a depression BUT when Democrats want to fix Bush's mess you hear about wasteful spending. What complete losers these "people" are.

Funny also with Robert saying how those were "pork" on Democratic ideas but I heard nothing about the same "pork" when Republicans were DOING THE EXACT SAME THING TO THEIR BILLS!


I would like to say congrats to Tennessee Volunteers coach Pat Summit for reaching 1000 wins. It's a great accomplishment you earned it.

Tell me

Tell me what the hell Michael Phelps did that was so wrong? So he smoked pot. Did he hurt anyone? No. Was he doing anything destructive? No. He was just smoking pot and the press is treating him like he killed 30 people. I think we need to re-prioritize what's wrong here. It's really pathetic.

What it really does

So we have a lesson from the Republicans on what trickle down economics really does. For years Republicans ran up the deficits, that trickled down to the states running up their deficits making states like California so broke we won't get our tax refunds. All it does is ruin economies.

By the way have you noticed that when Democrats who saw this coming got either recalled (like Gray Davis) or humiliated (like Eliot Spitzer). That's what you get for telling the truth.

Amen to President Obama for wanting to put a cap of $500,000 for salary for those executives who receive bailout money. I think that's the best idea he has had yet.

Wednesday, February 04, 2009

It's nice

Isn't it nice to actually hear a President say I screwed up as Obama did with Daschle? His team did less vetting then McCain did with Palin.

One more thing if not paying taxes disqualifies you from office shouldn't McCain have been disqualified from running for President? I have a story in my archives of him owing taxes on one of the houses he didn't know how many he owned.

Oh boy

It's funny what the Republicans would claim is wasteful spending in the stimulus package. There is a list. Now don't get me wrong some of them they are right but for the most part they are wrong. Here is what I mean:

$2 billion earmark to re-start FutureGen, a near-zero emissions coal power plant in Illinois that the Department of Energy defunded last year because it said the project was inefficient.

• A $246 million tax break for Hollywood movie producers to buy motion picture film.

I agree with Republicans here

$650 million for the digital television converter box coupon program.

I've been hearing about the switchover for a long time I heard they ran out of coupons for the coverters and millions of people still don't have theirs. Typical Republican want something but refuse to fund it

• $88 million for the Coast Guard to design a new polar icebreaker (arctic ship).

I agree with Republicans there

$448 million for constructing the Department of Homeland Security headquarters.

• $248 million for furniture at the new Homeland Security headquarters.

Bush's baby the Department of Homeland Security would need priority funding I would think. Republicans of course don't think

$600 million to buy hybrid vehicles for federal employees.

Why would Republicans want to clean up the enviornment? This would help that

$400 million for the Centers for Disease Control to screen and prevent STD's.

Republicans refuse to think long term. More people who can prevent STD's and the earlier they are able to detect them the less long term heath care costs there will be.

$1.4 billion for rural waste disposal programs

Again Republicans refuse for whatever reason to help the enviornment

$125 million for the Washington sewer system.

$150 million for Smithsonian museum facilities.

$1 billion for the 2010 Census, which has a projected cost overrun of $3 billion.

$75 million for "smoking cessation activities."

Agree with Republicans here

$200 million for public computer centers at community colleges

To me this would be a no-brainer. But then again we are dealing with Republicans. Everyone should have access to computers.

75 million for salaries of employees at the FBI.

The people on the frontline in the United States on the War on Terror. They deserve it

$25 million for tribal alcohol and substance abuse reduction

Agree with Republicans here

$500 million for flood reduction projects on the Mississippi River

One can only look to this past year for major flooding on the Mississippi. You don't think this would help?

$10 million to inspect canals in urban areas

Again looking to how Republicans failed New Orleans this doesn't surprise me

$6 billion to turn federal buildings into "green" buildings

Republicans won't want to help the enviornment at all.

$500 million for state and local fire stations

$650 million for wildland fire management on forest service lands

These I feel should be a state issue (I know Robert will faint when he sees this)

$1.2 billion for "youth activities," including youth summer job programs

Wouldn't putting people to work be a good thing

$88 million for renovating the headquarters of the Public Health Service

$412 million for CDC buildings and property.

• $500 million for building and repairing National Institutes of Health facilities in Bethesda, Maryland

Again more healthy people less costs on the system long term. It's simple logic

$160 million for "paid volunteers" at the Corporation for National and Community Service.]

If they are volunteers they shouldn't be paid.

5.5 million for "energy efficiency initiatives" at the Department of Veterans Affairs National Cemetery Administration

Republicans probably right here

$850 million for Amtrak.

We need our rail systems working.

$100 million for reducing the hazard of lead-based paint.

Again the health issue

$75 million to construct a "security training" facility for State Department Security officers when they can be trained at existing facilities of other agencies.

Depends how state of the art the current facility is.

$110 million to the Farm Service Agency to upgrade computer systems.

Agree with Republicans here

• $200 million in funding for the lease of alternative energy vehicles for use on military installations

Again the enviornment. I guess Republicans don't care.

Tuesday, February 03, 2009

Isn't it the same?

Isn't this the same reason why the Illinois Gov was impeached? Judd Gregg (R) said he would only accept the nomination of Commerce Secretary if he was replaced by another Republican. In other words I'll do something for you if you do something for me. Sounds like the exact same thing.

Bad game

It's must sure be nice to have the refs on your side as the Pittsburgh Steelers beat the Arizona Cardinals yesterday. Horrible officiating tilted in favor of the Steelers gave them the game.

Just wondering

Just wondering for any Catholic out there how they can support a religion that allowed their priests to molest young children and when rumors came out they, instead of firing the priests, just transferred them away so they could continue to harm more children? Cardinal Roger Mahoney is now under grand jury investigation and since he knew that it was going on he is at least an accomplice to these crimes and should, along with EVERY PRIEST INVOLVED, be thown in jail! That's those Catholics for you.
