100 Days

So today is the 100th day of the return of sanity to the White House in President Obama. He has accomplished a lot (most recently the defection from Arlen Specter from the Party of Cowards to the Democratic Party) but he does have weaknesses such as a willingness to cooperate with a party (again the Party of Cowards) that will do nothing to support him no matter how great his ideas are and who are openly calling for a revolution against the elected President.

One thing he promised open government we have it he promised change we don't have it completely but we are getting there. His is incredibly popular despite the media being against him and he is getting the job done.

Overkill or fair warning?

So I'm sure everyone saw the Press Briefing about the swine flu yesterday. I think they did a decent job in trying to get everyone informed but of course I feel the media did overkill the story. Let's face it in our country of hundreds of millions there are only 20 confirmed cases so far. s usual the media plays to fear instead of facts even though that's what the Obama people were trying to give.

Don't get me wrong we need to be informed but there is a difference.

So the GOP says we need to embrace Nuclear Energy like the country of France? Someone please correct me but isn't this the same country who after saying how Bush was lying about the Iraq Weapons of Mass Destruction they wanted to rename things like French Fries and French Toast to Freedom Fries and Freedom Toast? That's the GOP nothing but hypocrites.

What to do

So the big question of the week is what to do with those who authorized the torture of prisoners captured in the wars of Iraq and Afghanistan. To me it's very simple: If there is evidence of wrong doing those who authorized and carried out need to be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. And there is legal precedence:

And while the draft-dodging right continues to claim it's not a big deal it is. It's illegal. The link shows how American soldiers did face court martial and tried and convicted. It's very simple to logical people how to proceed. Of course logic doesn't apply do Republicans.

And I do have a question: We have an American Citizen who is being held in Iran. If she gets tortured should we be upset? I think we have no complaints if she does.

This might surprise you

Did anyone catch the controversy with Miss California during the Miss America event? Actually their really shouldn't be any. Miss California was asked by Judge Perez Hilton (whoever the hell he is) what her thoughts on gay marriage were and she said she thought it should be between a man and a woman. Simple enough and as much as I disagree with her she is absolutely entitled to her own opinion.

But she might have a lawsuit on her hands because Hilton then goes off on her on youtube saying that it cost her being Miss America and if that is the reason that is completely wrong. Everyone, right or wrong, has a right to their views and really is that a question that should be asked during an event like that.

What did she expect?

So I see where California Rep. Jane Harmon is upset that the NSA was using their authority that she voted for to listen in to her coversations. My question is what did she expect? Bush was going to use that to listen into American citizen conversations everyone with a brain knew that he would use that to his advantage. Why did she not know that it would happen Bush's word? Give me a break she got and is getting at she deserves but we should know who else.

More Phony Outrage

In yet another phony outrage Republicans are using the media they control to attack President Obama for the crime of shaking Venezuela President Hugo Chavez hand and being nice to him. First off I know Chavez is not a nice guy BUT we need to be reminded a few things about him:

After Katrina hit he, not Shell Exxon or anyone here offered oil for cheap while they(Shell, Exxon gauged prices

In the cold winters back east Chavez (not Shell, Exxon) has offered cheaper heating oil to those who couldn't afford the high gas prices that were going on by American Companies

And if they are upset about that why weren't they upset at photos that show Former Sec. Rumsfeld shaking Sadam Hussein's hand or Nixon in China or Reagan, both Bush's in Russia? Oh yeah Republicans are STUPID!

Wrong Move

So President Obama released the memos from the Bush Administration authorizing torture. I think President Obama's strength is also his biggest weakness and that is his desire to move away from Bush. These people who ordered, authorized and applied the torture should be prosecuted, convicted and have the same done to them as they did to other people and for what? NOTHING ACCOMPLISHED FROM IT. Sorry Mr. President you are wrong for doing nothing.

So the latest phony outrage from the right is the Department of Homeland Security report saying how recruitment from domestic right-wing terrorist organizations has increased and there is increased chatter. What the right-wing media said (idiots like Rush, O'Idiot, Hannity etc) is this is purely political (nevermind there was a report a year ago saying how left-wing groups are gong to use cyber attacks) but let's take a look at the past few months to prove that this is a legitimate concern:

First during the campaign. You had Palin and McCain encouraging violence

Then you had the Arkansas Reporter Anne Pressley, who played Ann Coulter in the movie "W"

You had the curch shooting in Tennessee

You had the murder of the head of the Democratic Party in Arkansas

Then just a few weeks ago the mass shooting of police officers in Pittsburgh from a guy who was a right-winger who was afraid Obama was going to take away his guns.

Yes Republicans are increasing violence so the reports is accurate


So today is the fourth anniversary of my website. I am proud of it (the fact I've committed myself for this long still amazes me) and I will continue to post news and commentary showing how stupid and absurd the right wing media and Senators and Congressmen and Congresswoman are by using their words quoting them not out of context but in context as they are.

And I hope you notice one thing about me: If I am typing it on my website I will not backtrack from what I say and I am man enough to say when I do change my mind or if I am wrong which is something the right never does

Get Out

I saw when I got home yesterday how Texas Gov. Rick Perry said at the phony tea party that Texas could withdraw from the union whenever they want. First doing the research (something apparently Republicans can't do or won't do) they can't according to a Supreme Court Ruling in 1869. Second I think the following steps needs to be taken:

A) The stimulus money Texas received needs to be taken back. It's obvious they don't want it
B) That border fence needs to be moved to Oklahoma, New Mexico, Arkansas and Lousiana to keep Texans out of the United States
C) Next time a hurricaine, fire, tornado, drought or any of the other disasters that hit Texas happen there should be NO FEDERAL HELP! They want to be on their own let them.
D) Perry needs to be arrested for TREASON. That's what his statement implied. For that matter so should Chuck Norris who said the same thing as Michelle Bachman from Minnesota who said the same thing. That is TREASON and should be treated as such!

You want to incite violence there needs to be a direct result of your actions!

A Day of Tea

Against my better judgement I figured I should check out the local tea party and maybe talk to a few people to see why they are so angry. Interesting responses and a small crowd. It always amazes me how ignorant people are.

I asked one person why he was there. The response was I'm against being taxed by Obama to fund Wall Street bailouts. I asked him if he knew that the bailouts happened in October under George Bush in fact reminding him how McCain "suspended" his campaign in order to deal with the crisis. He insisted I was wrong even though I'm not and he simply walked away

I talked to a woman there (by the way at this rally I noticed not many latino's or african americans or asians just mainly white people) why she is here. She said she is against the spending going on in Washington. So I asked the simple question was she upset when Republicans under George Bush ran up the record deficit and erased the budget surplus that Bill Clinton gave us? She walked away.

So I went up to another gentleman carrying a sign saying "Don't take away my guns" and I asked him what has President Obama said are implied that indicates he will do that? His response was "Glen Beck said he would". I asked if Glen Beck asked you to jump off a cliff would you? He walked away in typical response to reasonable questions I asked today.

That's how it was. The people at these protests don't know who they are really upset at and would rather be guided by False News then facts.

Misplaced Anger

I was trying to aviod talking about the phony "tea parties" that's being heavily promoted by Fox and Right-wingers. The reason is as I said it's a complete fake and the anger is completely misplaced.

First for those who don't understand or remember their history the Boston Tea Party was one of the pre cursors for the American Revolution. Which makes sense since the right has said they want to overthorw the elected President.

Second if you listen to the reasons why the protesters claim they are angry it's completely misplaced. Here is what they claim they are upset about:

A) The Wall Street Bailout. First it wasn't President Obama who did it. It was George Bush. Bush set this up in October. So you should blame Bush and not President Obama cause it was Bush who wanted and received the bailout.

B) Record deficit spending. Again it was THE REPUBLICANS under George Bush who ran a record deficit. Not President Obama. Place the blame where it deserves to be

C) (And this is the one I understand the least) Taxes. Speaking for myself my paycheck has INCREASED and not DECREASED. Tell me where taxes has been raised on a NATIONAL LEVEL? They haven't been. Now at state level yes but not ON NATIONAL LEVEL. Again people aren't believing facts on that.

And worst of all how this is being treated as a grassroots protest, it's false news and a group headed by Dick Armey who is sponsoring it. Again look at the facts.

By the way isn't it the job of journalists to reports the news and not create it?

So in other words we have phony anger being directed at people who are not responsible for it. Typical Republican hypocrites!

It's over?? Not yet

I don't understand something. The vote in the Minnesota Senate happened in November. The recount happened, Coleman appealed lost the appeal Al Franken should be certified as the Senator of Minnesota hence giving the state two Senators. But since Coleman is a SORE LOSER who can't accept defeat (funny how the media said that about Gore and Kerry but isn't saying that about Coleman) Minnesota isn't getting the representation they voted for and their Governor won't let Franken go to the Senate pending Coleman's appeal to the Minnesota Supreme Court putting his own needs, as Republicans always do, before the voters desires (again as Republicans always do). This is one of the things I hope voters remember.

You also know about the hijacking of the ship in Somalia and the Captain who was freed yesterday. I would like to say congrats to the U.S. Navy, the brave people aboard the ship and most importantly President Obama who gave the order to the Navy to do what is necessary to free the Captain.

Now we know the Republicans are going to find a way to blast President Obama since that's all they know how to do. Smear. But this was his first foreign policy test and he passed with flying colors. And the best part compared to the previous idiot in office is there is no victory lap from President Obama he did his job and moved on. THAT'S a true leader!


In my last post I commented how Republicans need enemies I forgot to mention Cuba. You may or may not know that members of the Black Caucus visited Cuba last week and got, as usual since that's all they know how to do, got blasted by Republicans saying how can they meet with the Castro Brothers based on their human rights? I was wondering where that outrage is with countries that they want to do business with like oh say China, Saudi Arabia and many others that have far worse governments and violate human rights? Oh yeah they are silent there.

I hope President Obama lifts restrictions against Cuba. It's been way too long!

What Republicans Really Need

I think I figured it out. What Republicans really need. They need enemies. It has to be it. They obviously have no ideas but the ones the constantly fail. All they do is attack because of it. Here are examples:

Gay Marriage
Illegal Immigration
Media even though it's truly right-wing
everything else

They only attack. That's why they are no longer in power. They need enemies cause they think it will make them stronger but instead it makes them weak.

Whoo is really an activist?

What I always find amusing from the right is whenever a court or judge rules on an issue they disagree with they call those judges "activist judges". Always. As the latest example I present the Iowa Supreme Court which recently allowed same-sex couples to marry. I say bravo to them. But I wonder when judges who actually are activist in their rulings (aka our SURPREME COURT in the ruling of Bush vs. Gore) why there is no outcry? Just the usual hypocritical G.O.P.O.C (for those who need a reminder that stands for grand old party of cowards which is what they are) selves.

NL Central: Cardinals
NL East: Mets

Shut Up Part 2

So in my previous post I implored Republicans to "shut up" now you may know that three police officers were killed in Pittsburgh but you don't know the reason why. This is from the AP:

A gunman wearing a bulletproof vest and "lying in wait" opened fire on officers responding to a domestic disturbance call Saturday, killing three of them and turning a quiet Pittsburgh street into a battlefield, police said.

Police Chief Nate Harper said the motive for the shooting isn't clear, but friends said the gunman recently had been upset about losing his job and feared the Obama administration was poised to ban guns....

Poplawski had feared "the Obama gun ban that's on the way" and "didn't like our rights being infringed upon," said Edward Perkovic, his best friend....

Another longtime friend, Aaron Vire, said Poplawski feared that President Barack Obama was going to take away his rights, though he said he "wasn't violently against Obama."

This IS A DIRECT RESULT of John McCain, Sarah Palin and the hate they smeared during the campaign as well as Rep. Michelle Bachman and Chuck Norris calling for a revolution against the President which they have! They are accessories to the officers murders and if the D.A. would have any guts would charge them as such. As I said theRepublican Party needs to SHUT UP ONCE AND FOR ALL before they lead to more deaths. This isn't the first time this happened and until they SHUT UP won't be the last!

One Request

I have one simple request for Republicans: Please shut up! There are reasons why you are not in power anymore. Your policies ruined this country. You constantly lie about the ELECTED PRESIDENT OBAMA and what he is doing to get out country on the right track you continuously blame him for getting us into the mess we are in (even though YOU DID) and you are openly campaigning about having a "Revolution" as Michelle Bachman and others are saying when that is clearly treason! As I said SHUT UP!

If anyone who is liberal said about Bush what Republicans have said about PRESIDENT OBAMA we would have been told or called "un-patriotic" or " treasonous" or "we don't support America" the fact is YOU are the ones who put us where we are and if you look at the latest poll from ABC News and the Washington Post the PUBLIC knows that! So as I said SHUT UP!

You always run on deficits you never have new ideas (and I realize that's part of the reason why you hate Obama cause he has good ideas) and until you regain power (which you won't at the rate you are going and the disaray your party is in) you need to SHUT UP you treasonist losers!
