All Goldy, all the time

I’ve got a busy schedule over the next week, so here’s a peek at what’s coming up.

  • Extra Radio:
    I’ll be filling in for Frank Shiers tomorrow (Friday, May 11) from 9PM to 1AM, in addition to my usual Saturday and Sunday shows, 7PM to 10PM on Newsradio 710-KIRO. Scheduled guests include:

  • Portland World Tour:
    I’ll be reluctantly absent from Drinking Liberally this Tuesday, May 15, as I head down to Portland to join David Sirota at the Digital Politics Forum, sponsored by the Oregon Bus Project, the Portland Mercury and my friends Carla and TJ at Loaded Orygun. 7PMish at ACME, 1305 SE 8th in Portland. Free admission, but feel free to buy me a drink afterwards.
  • 48th District Dems:
    Are you an Eastside party activist wannabe who just can’t bring yourself to attend your local Legislative District meeting? Well you 48th LD‘ers can drop by Stevenson Elementary School (14220 NE 8th ST, Bellevue) at 7PM, Wednesday, May 16 to hear me give my usual spiel on how the key to politics is telling a better story, and how if Dems want to tell a better story they could learn a lesson or two from the progressive blogs.

    Why is it when a Moonbat! goes from pro-life to proc-hoice he’s a hero and when a Republican goes from pro-choice to pro-life he/she’s a pariah?

    Oh… yeah, liberalism is a disease!

    …” Jonathan Cohn of The New Republic joins me to talk about his new book “SICK: The Untold Story of America’s Health Care Crisis — and the People Who Pay the Price.“ …”

    The book, while good, is an understatement of the actual crissis.

    All the nondisclosure clauses and agreements health-care workers sign keeps the true chaos/waste/ mismanagement under wraps.

    Whom is HIPPA really protecting?

    The moment you report what you see, you “violate” patient confidentiality and will loose your job, or get scared out of your wit by management with the threat of loosing your license, long before the actual “event” you are “speaking up” about goes anywhere.

    Why is the MSM so focused on Mitt Romney and Rudy Guiliani?

    Maybe they feel compelled to destroy them now and improve Hilary’s chances, since most are still backing Hilary while the peeps are coming around to Barack.

    Magic!

    “After months of conflicting signals on abortion, Rudolph W. Giuliani is planning to offer a forthright affirmation of his support for abortion rights in public forums, television appearances and interviews in the coming days, despite the potential for bad consequences among some conservative voters already wary of his views, aides said yesterday.”

    Personally I’m waiting for thei “man” Michael Moron to tell us all about health care.

    http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/200.....hael_moore

    “Academy Award-winning filmmaker Michael Moore is under investigation by the U.S. Treasury Department for taking ailing Sept. 11 rescue workers to Cuba for a segment in his upcoming health-care documentary “Sicko,” The Associated Press has learned. …

    In February, Moore took about 10 ailing workers from the Ground Zero rescue effort in Manhattan for treatment in Cuba, said a person working with the filmmaker on the release of “Sicko.” The person requested anonymity because Moore’s attorneys had not yet determined how to respond. …

    “Sicko” promises to take the health-care industry to task the way Moore confronted America’s passion for guns in “Bowling for Columbine” and skewered Bush over his handling of Sept. 11 in “Fahrenheit 9/11.””

    I’m sure he will focus on these images in his movie:

    Clueless – this is attribution. I realize your paramecium sized mind is confounded by this concept.

    RightEqualsStupid spews:

    Of Course Michael Moore is being investigated. It’s how the SS division of the Bush Regime works. They try to criminalize dissent. It’s a civil violation and EVEN if it gets legs, all it will do is help the movie. The right never learns. They pulled similar shit when the 9.11 movie came out and all they accomplished was making Moore millions of dollars and making certain his movie was a hit. So righties, bring it on. We love to watch you undermine yourselves. The funny thing is you inbred pieces of shit are too fucking stoooopid to realize it.

    to #5

    you need ‘Power of Attorney’ before you can even begin to have a say or look.

    Power of Attorney for Medical Decisions and a Living Will, with very clear advanced directives, written before the current “event” will give you some protection…

    Should your wife have HIV or similar diagnosed in the aftermath of car-wreck for example, your ‘cross viewing agreements’ will be contested if “the medical-team” feels threatened by your request.

    Puddybud:

    Let me see if I understand you correctly. You’re so busy you don’t have time right now to left click on a link and watch a 30 second commercial so you can FULLY understand the position your political leaders have placed our nation in that has cost the lives of 3,400 soldiers and breaking our Army and Marine Corp?

    But, somehow you have time to fuck off and blog on HA?

    You cannot take 30 seconds out of your life to support our troops?

    OK, either you’re lying about time management, or you’re lying about your support of our troops.

    The truth is, you have time to fuck off on this blog, and you know full good and well that your support of this failed president has caused the death of thousands of America’s soldiers, placed our military in peril, and endangers our national security.

    You know what? That is the most pathetic position I’ve ever known you to take.

    You cannot admit Bush lied. Because I’ve put you and all the other conservatives in an impossible position, for if you possessed the moral clarity to admit your wrongful support of conservatism would be to admit the blood of our soldiers are on your hands.

    I know it, you know it, everybody who reads this knows, it but more importantly all the families who have buried the result of your stunning lack of moral clarity knows it.

    Too bad. You better get right with the Lord because right now you’re violating the “9th Commandment.

    Nuff said.

    The first in the series of three ads features VoteVets.org Advisory Board Member, Major General (ret.) John Batiste, who was commanding general of the 1st Infantry Division from August 2002-June 2005. During this time frame, he conducted combat operations in Iraq in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom. Batiste twice voted for President Bush and is a lifelong Republican.

    I challenge in conservative to click this video and tell me which man is lying: Maj. Gen. Batiste or George W. Bush.

    Puddybud said on another thread is too busy right now to view a 30 second video, but has plenty of time to blog on this thread form 11:01am to 11:54am, almost an hour.

    Sounds like the kind of support your willing to lend to our soldiers — zero!

    That’s how 4 years of combat goes by and not one fucking Republican bothers to see how our troops are really being taken care of at Walter Reed. Or how they ALWAYS vote AGAINST our troops when it comes to spending $$.

    @23
    He also advocates for more troops for General Patreus, and not to set a “surrender date”.
    Seems like he’s critical of Bush, but not on board with the lib timetable-defeat strategy.

    “MoveOn and VoteVets have teamed up on a video project called VideoVets”

    Sourcing is everything. Georg Soros’s hand in this is all I need to know. He truly is an American Hater.

  27. 32

    Right Stuff spews:

    From the NY Times.
    “John Batiste, a retired Army major general who also joined in the call for Mr. Rumsfeld’s resignation, described the Congressional proposals for troop withdrawals as “terribly naïve.”

    “There are lots of things that have to happen to set them up for success,” General Batiste, who commanded a division in Iraq, said in an interview, describing the Iraqi government. “Until they happen, it does not matter what we tell Maliki.”

    Before considering troop reductions, General Batiste said, the United States needs to take an array of steps, including fresh efforts to alleviate unemployment in Iraq, secure its long and porous borders, enlist more cooperation from tribal sheiks, step up the effort to train Iraq’s security forces, engage Iraq’s neighbors and weaken, or if necessary, crush the militias.

    Indeed, General Batiste has recently written that pending the training of an effective Iraqi force, it may be necessary to deploy tens of thousands of additional “coalition troops.” General Batiste said he hoped that Arab and other foreign nations could be encouraged to send troops.”

    Well I guess he is not in line with the Lib Retreat and defeat strategy, but he sure can throw haymakers via video….
    That’s good enough for the hate the troops, hate Bush, retreat and surrender crowd here…

  28. 33

    Milo spews:

    144 of 275 Iraqi legislaters have called for US troops to set a timetable to leave. Will likely be debated next week. Bushies, if they ask us to leave, should we?

    No Right Stuff, you are clearly one of the troop haters.

    You such an ignorant fuck. See all those things you posted that Gen Batiste said we should do, haven’t been done.

    Thanks for helping me make my point, you al Qeada cock sucking troop hater.

    Your fucked up party cannot win in Iraq, and ties don’t fucking count in war, you cunt.

    PS: There’s more to come from the commanding generals on the ground, ass hole. Wait until Maj. Gen Eaton does his commercial.

    Question, dick suck: when in American history have generals retired from the military during a time of war and did commercials telling the American public that the commander in chief they served under LIED about the war?

    Answer: NEVER, prick.

    Conservatives hate the troops and America. You dumb mother fuckers are ending up on a teeny tiny island known as 28%.

    Good luck with that in next year’s elections, fuck wad.

    Do you need a towel to get all that blood off of you or are you good with that like Bush and Cheney.

    BTW: where are the Bush twin whores partying these days while other people’s kids go off to fight and die defending America like Pat Tillman.

    Nice try fuck head, but I’m correct and you are wrong.

    I’m not making the point, jerk off, Maj. Gen. Batiste is making the point that Bush is a fucking liar.

    More to the point, dick suck, the crap you’re spewing isn’t Batiste position any longer, that what it used to be when there was still a chance at winning the war.

    What you aint, what you’ll never be, is a winner in warfare. When America needed to defeat Germany and Japan we did it in less time than you assholes have been fucking around that rat hole in Iraq while Repubilcans were firmly planting their tails between their legs and pissing all down their legs.

    Here’s the difference between Democrats and pussy conservatives; Joe Kennedy pulled strings so his son could be on the front lines of combat. Conservatives pull strings so their kids can go leap frog ahead of other people so they can end up in the TANG, and then let their kids party like Paris Hilton while the Pat Tillman, Jessica Lynch type serve their country.

    Unlike you, you unpatriotic piece of shit.

    ”I am outraged, as are the majority of Americans. I’m a lifelong Republican, but it’s past time for change,” retired Maj. Gen. John Batiste told reporters.
    Our strategy in Iraq today is more of the same, a slow grind to nowhere which totally ignores the reality of Iraq and the lessons of history,” Batiste said. ”Our president ignores sound military advice and surrounds himself with like-minded and compliant subordinates.
    ”The fact is, the president has never listened to the soldiers on the ground effectively,”

    So fuck off, you unpatriotic piece of shit.

Every dry-humping, baby raping Publican who says they support the war ought to be in Iraq fighting or at least sucking soldier’s cock instead of approaching teenage boys behind the Port Orchard bowling alley.

    Fortunately 3/4 of Americans now realize the lies of the right have harmed this country and patriots are seeking out the traitors who sent us to Iraq and dealing with them accordingly.

    Seattle, WA 98103

    (206)706-4063

    I was told that a republican group about 3 weeks ago ordered 500 burritos for a meet up of some kind this Saturday, may 12, 2007. This week, they requested to know which political party this Taco Del Mar supported. Upon finding out that it wasn’t republican, they canceled the order. Although this small business received a 25% deposit, they will be receiving a bunch of food that will perish by the end of the weekend.

    I’m not sure if it’s accurate as I haven’t been able to find any republican meet ups this weekend. But it sounds like something they’d do, the frickin’ hypocrites.

    Headless lucy,

    When are you going to admit you were wrong and finally realize that Dems have left 1000 professional, Full time, Career, Union Firefighters without Medicare? Why won’t you call the Washington State Council of Firefighters? Why won’t you admit that dems created the 2nd worse Firefighter Pension program in the US when they went with LEOFF Plan 2? Are you afraid of the Truth?

    “In conformance with actuarial study recommendations, the City makes contributions of General Fund
    revenue to the Fire Pension Fund in excess of current needs in order to meet the expected payouts
    during future years. Consequently, the Fire Pension Fund has accumulated a substantial ending fund
    balance that generates a significant amount of interest earnings each year, which are incorporated into
    the actuarial studies. The City uses a funding method that attempts to achieve uniform and predictable
    contributions over many years, rather than delayed funding that will lead to large and rapidly escalating payments in the future.”

    I win!

    Union Fireman spews:

    Harry,

    Actually, you don’t win. In the State of Washington, Everett Firefighters are covered under the LEOFF Plan 1 and 2 Pension funds. Here is the link for the LEOFF Plan 2 advisory Board website;

    http://www.leoff.wa.gov

    If you notice, on the front page the statement;

    “You are a member of the Washington State Law Enforcement Officers’ and Fire Fighters’ (LEOFF) Plan 2 retirement plan if you were hired on or after October 1, 1977 and are a full-time, fully compensated law enforcement officer or fire fighter.”

    From October 1, 1977 to sometime in 1984, all firefighters and Police officers who were hired, and eligible for the LEOFF Plan 2(I.E. They have to be fully compensated and defined as firefighters) were not contributing to Medicare. Those of us hired after that date in 1984, do pay into Medicare. However, it was never retroactive. So, all Professional Fully Compensated Firefighters and Police Officers that were hired during that time period, and have not paid into Medicare through 2nd or 3rd jobs, are not eligible to receive Medicare.

    I didn’t say that these firefighters weren’t eligible for a Pension. I stated that our Pension is the 2nd worst in the US and we have 1000 members that are not eligible for Medicare.

    See Harry, you didn’t learn from Headless did you? Let me put this into terms that you might be able to understand. I AM RIGHT, YOU ARE WRONG!. Want proof?

    Contact the Washington State Council of Firefighters or the LEOFF Pension Advisory office, and see if anything I have stated is false. Then come back, admit you are are wrong, and maybe cry a little.

    @31 The way wingnutz like WrongStuff tell it, Dems are responsible for the defeat in Iraq. Let’s be clear about something. Republicans ran this war, and Republicans lost it. All the Dems are doing is saying, “the reality is you dumb shits lost your war, so let’s stop throwing away lives on it.” Big difference. But wingnutz would rather kill more Americans than admit they were wrong.

    re 89: But the same officers DID have Medicare taken out of their wages after 1984, so they are eligible. You are talking about a period of 7 years.

    Where is your list of firefighters (1,000 — you say)who have no Medicare coverage?

    Did 1,000 officers work for 7 years, never work again, and who now have a “fully funded” pension plan – with medical benefits — and are complaining because they do not have Medicare as well?

    Good luck making an issue of this — idiot.

    re 96: Nixon opened up China to trade and the Chinese government subsequently opened up “free trade zones” — which is where the melamine tainted products come from.

    All of this is beside the point. The point is that the FDA is not protecting the safety of our food sources, they are protecting corporate profits and shielding businesses from liability.

    That is not the job of the FDA.

    Once again the ASSES are wrong.. and ASSES spews:

    Conservative pundit Ann Coulter has been cleared of allegations that she falsified her Palm Beach County voter\’s registration and voted illegally — this, after a high-level FBI agent made unsolicited phone calls to the Palm Beach County Sheriff\’s Office to vouch for Coulter.

    The caller wasn\’t just any G-man. According to PBSO documents, he was Supervisory Special Agent Jim Fitzgerald, of the FBI Academy\’s Behavioral Analysis Unit in Quantico, Va. — the closest reality gets to the serial-killer catchers on CBS\’ Criminal Minds.

    So why would an FBI profiler who went after the Unabomber take time from his busy day to even think about a municipal election snafu?

    Fitzgerald is mum. But when the bureau heard about this from Page Two, it immediately launched an internal review of the agent\’s involvement.

    \”We\’re looking into it,\” bureau spokeswoman Ann Todd said.

    She declined to say whether Fitzgerald acted on his personal behalf or as an FBI agent or on someone else\’s orders.

    Once again the ASSES are wrong.. and are ASSES.

    We should have Indian food, that way you vegetarians can have more choices off the menu.
    Ain’t that a hoot? The Liberal is the red-meat eatin’, military veteran, and the conservative is the vegetarian, civilian. Well, except for PacMan, at least he served in Army.

    Then, I can bust your bust your balls in person over your chimp-in-charge’s handling of the War on Terror – which is a fucking failure, by the way. As the GOP congressmen who visited the White House the other days said the president; “you have no credibility on Iraq any more.”

    Union Fireman spews:

    Lucy @97,

    Damn, how stupid are you?

    Let me try this again, at a 3rd grade level. The firefighters and Police officers who were hired during that 7 year period, due to the changes in the LEOFF, have never paid into Medicare. They were exempt. Those hired after 1984, did and do pay into Medicare. However, the action was not retroactive, so those members remained in their exempt status. Like I said before, contact the Washington State Council of Firefighters or the LEOFF Advisory board. Hell, contact your local Rep, and they can even verify.

    So, when you say that those officers or firefighters who were hired in say 1980, started paying into medicare after 1984, you are wrong. Hell, call your Firefighters Local Union and they can verify, if you like. Basic research Libtard. Try it, Learn it Love it.
