    I thank the Teabaggers for finally showing how radical the hardcore ideology of Ronald Reagan actually was. The proverbail straw that broke the camels back and caused mainstream America to finally abandon Reagaism as a model for governing.

    We tried it and, like the old way of doing business with health insurance companies, we’re not going back.

    Change that you can believe in. Change that did happen. Change that will continue to keep coming despite what the dead ender Reaganties cry about.

    The deaths of four Anacortes refinery workers (and severe injuries to three more) early today remind us that the cost of burning gas in our vehicles is more than the money we part with at the pump; more, even, than the concrete covering the land and emissions spewed into the atmosphere; refining oil into gasoline is, and always will be, a dangerous job that from time to time snuffs out vibrant young lives.

    @3, And the fat cats on Wall Street get paid huge bonuses for producing nothing and risking nothing and all they complain about the taxes they don’t pay.

    Bill Maher is a national treasure. He hit it on the nose–the Democrats won, thank God for teabaggers, and Nancy Pelosi has balls. There is a reason Wingnuttia hates Nancy Pelosi; that reason would be that she is putting them on the endangered species list. Gasp for air, wingnuts, your time has come.

    Yeah, maybe, but he is our arrogant fucking jerk.

    The difference between Rush and Bill is, Bill is right (that means correct to all you folks in Rio Linda).

    @8 I like our arrogant fucking jerks better than your arrogant fucking jerks. For one thing, ours are right and yours are wrong; but there are other reasons as well. Anyone who aligns himself with the teabaggers should be deported, whether he’s a natural-born citizen or not. I say deport Rush to one of those lush Caribbean isles where a rich guy like him can buy all the drugs he wants — he makes more sense when he’s zonked.

    Maxie @ 14,
    I understand that at 16 years old, and having been home-schooled by parents who did not quite make it through high school, given Mom’s inconvenient status as “with child” and all, that history is rather incomprehensible to you. But, really, comparing Roger Rabbit to Goebbels? Don’t you think that is a bit of an overstatement?

    It is, you sonofabitch. Goebbels was inhuman. When you wingies compare us on the left to monstrosities like Goebbels, you fucks think it is funny. It is not. That is why you will continue to lose, Maxie, you tiny piece of shit. You do not have any real sense of history. You just don’t get it.

    In case you’re wondering what those threatening letters to the nation’s governors are all about, the so-called “sovereign citizen” movement has been around for a long time. An outgrowth of the posse comitatas and tax protest movements, its founders are dead and today it’s a leaderless ideology, which exists mainly for the profits derived from selling books, tapes, seminars, and how-to information to gullible people who (falsely) believe they can exempt themselves from laws and taxes by declaring themselves “sovereign” persons. One of the hallmarks of adherents is their refusal to use postal zip codes on mail, as they believe doing so subjects them to government control.

    This ideology is complete bunk. It has been universally rejected by courts throughout the United States. Its premise — that a person can constitute himself an independent sovereign entity on U.S. soil simply by declaring his “sovereignty — is preposterous on its face.

    What is not ridiculous, however, is the threat these people pose to society. While courts do not take their ideology seriously, they do, and some of them are capable of violence.

    In Alabama, two self-proclaimed “sovereign citizens,” George Sibley and Lynda Lyon Block (his common-law wife) shot and killed a police officer who pulled them over for having a home-made license plate on their car — a form of protest. Both were executed for this crime. (Block was the last person to be executed by electrocution in Alabama; Sibley was later put to death by lethal injection.) Another group of “sovereign citizens,” the so-called “Montana Freemen,” were involved in a standoff with FBI agents.

    Aware of these ideologues’ potential for violence, law enforcement agencies are taking the threatening letters seriously.

    @14 “round them up and ship them to the camps, right goebbels rabbit?”

    You can thank Ann Coulter — I got this idea from her. Hey, you guys want to do it to us, so why shouldn’t we do it to you? Why should righties have a monopoly over deportations? My philosophy is, if conservatives want to have death squads, then liberals should have them too. What goes around comes around, you know?

    Roger Rabbit spews:

    @16 Oh, I don’t know, to be fair to Maxie maybe he’s onto something. After all, I’m as mean a sonofabitch as any of their guys — when I have to be — and I believe in fighting fire with fire, including dropping napalm on wingnut positions if military necessity so dictates.

    In any case, I’m not human to start with, so I guess that makes me an inhuman sonofabitch; I’m a feral rabbit, and when provoked, I’m all teeth and claws. Just ask any buck rabbit who tried to horn in on my harem.

    Let’s ship them all to Oklahoma. Oklahoma is a state that should be excluded from the union. James Inhofe, United States Senator from Oklahoma, can sometimes spell his first name correctly, rarely his last. Stupidity as big as his is, is hard to contemplate. Yet, he is a voice within the Republican Party. Let’s ship them all to Oklahoma.

    A fifth victim of the Anacortes refinery fire — the other injured woman — has died, according to news sources.

    The 7-person crew was performing routine cleaning and maintenance of boilers used to heat oil under pressure. The explosion occurred during the most dangerous step, turning on the boilers. The two remaining survivors, both males, are in critical condition at the Harborview burn unit.

    Refinery work is inherently dangerous. Six workers were killed at the nearby Shell refinery in 1998.

    Sorry. Didn’t mean to defend a rabbit fully capable of defending himself. Most bunnies run when confronted. I forgot that some don’t. (Please forgive our dog, who chases your species. She’s never caught one of you, though she has chased many. Now, she’s quite old. She can’t even jump up on the bed anymore. She still aspires to catch one of you, but I’m quite sure that will not happen. Forgive her or her aspirations.)

    Retailers See Improving Economy

    While media focus is on last month’s job gains, other economic data indicate a broad-based economic turnaround is underway.

    Here are some of the important statistical indicators:

    Consumer spending in inflation-adjusted real terms fell in 2008 by 0.2% and declined another 0.6% in 2009, the first occurrence since the 1930s of back-to-back years of slumping sales. But recently, consumer spending has risen for 5 straight months, up 3.4% in February from a year earlier.

    White House economic adviser Lawrence Summers calculates that 14 million new vehicles per year are needed for population growth and replacement of old vehicles. Sales last year were 10.4 million, well below what’s needed, indicating that pent-up demand exists.

    Wages and salaries grew 0.8% in the last 6 months after falling 4.9% in the preceding 12 months, suggesting consumers now have more money to spend.

    In the 4th quarter of 2009, household net was up by 11.8%, to $54.2 trillion from $48.5 trillion in the 1st quarter. Over roughly the same period, the household savings rate was up, to 3.1% from 1.7% in 2007, and both aggregate household debt and the percentage of of household income going to debt repayment fell — the lattr to its lowest level since 2000.

    One commentator quoted by Business Week predicts “solid, if unspectacular consumer spending growth this year near 3%.”

    Roger Rabbit Commentary: President Obama’s economic policies worked. A replay of the Great Depression has been averted. Home prices have stabilized, stocks have roared back, credit is becoming available again, consumers are returning to stores, and the economy is creating jobs again. Why vote the Republicans back in? That’s stupid.

    3 On SCOTUS Short List

    “The Obama administration, eyeing the possible retirement of U.S. Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens, is focusing on three candidates … U.S. Solicitor General Elena Kagan and federal appellate judges Diane Wood and Merrick Garland[.]”

    http://www.businessweek.com/ne.....court.html

    Roger Rabbit Commentary: Appointment of a liberal to replace Stevens wouldn’t change the ideological makeup of the court. President Obama probably won’t have an opportunity to do that, at least not in his first term, because most of the conservative bloc are relatively young recent appointees — it will take many years to reverse the damage George W. Bush inflicted on the federal judiciary. And, unfortunately, we have to expect the Party of No to fight tooth and claw against anyone Obama appoints. Hell, Obama could appoint Mother Teresa or Santa Claus or Jesus Christ and the Republicans would object! Merit, as we saw in the health reform debate, has nothing to do with it. After all, the insurance mandate McKenna and other far-right attorneys general are taking to court was a Republican idea promoted by the Republican party not so many years ago. No, this is all about having a humongous temper tantrum; to hell with democracy, if they don’t get their way, they’re gonna throw their baby bottles against the wall!

    Let’s remember that John Paul Stevens, now considered a liberal on the Supreme Court, was appointed by whom? He was appointed by Gerald Ford, a Republican who stumbled into the presidency, but a president, nonetheless. Stevens was a Republican when appointed, anointed, whatever. He is one of the finest examples of how far right, and wrong, the Republican Party has moved. Keep crawling to the right, my friends on the right, keep crawling.

    Easter Sunday at 9:00 PM eastern. Sounds like this could be History in the making. Obama has taken on Fox and it appears they are ready to spill the ugly beans of truth about the background of this individual who has had an extremely radical past. This Sunday Fox news, is going to air a very important documentary about Barack Obama, Sunday night at 9 P M Eastern. The report will go back to Obama’s earlier days, showing even then his close ties to radical Marxist professors, friends, spiritual advisers, etc. It will also reveal details about his ties to Rev. Wright for 20+ years, I.e., how he was participating with this man, and not for the reasons he stated. The report has uncovered more of Obama’s radical past and we will see things that no one in the media is willing to put out there. It will be a segment to remember. Democrat or Republican, this report will open your eyes to how YOUR country is being sold down the road to Totalitarian Socialism.

    Oba-Mao is still doing poorly with the unaffiliated voters. He got overwhelming support from this group in 2008.
    Now–

    Among those not affiliated with either major party, just 23% Strongly Approve of the President’s performance while 48% Strongly Disapprove

    Not so good.
    The Democrats are loving Oba-Mao.
    Republicans not.
    Unaffilateds…not.

    Do the math.

    Mr. Cynical spews:

    BTW–
    I think Fox waiting to do this blockbuster on Oba-Mao’s past on Easter Sunday for the obvious reason….but also so they could tie his words & actions as President to his past comments & affiliations.

    you talk as if in Canada there’s blood flowing in the streets. Or as if in France there’s “Totalitarian Socialism” with no elections, gulags, etc.

    Are you guys in fact so stupid and ignorant that you don’t knwo the most basic facts like these:

    Canada and France have freedom, elections, and no gulags?
    Canada has a per capita income that’s now the same as the USA…it’s caught up…thus proving your theory that socialized health care leads to a downward spiral is simply….

    wrong, stupid and ignorant?

    And France is doing just fine economically. In fact, it was a big fat socialist program based on the taxing the rich in the USA and TAKING THEIR MONEY AND GIVING IT AWAY TO OTHER PEOPLE that brought Europe back after ww2.

    Gee, Europe’s done pretty well from 1945 to the present, don’t you think?

How growth shrunk and shrunk so that finally we got out of the depression when ronald reagan took office, yeah, that’s how we got out fo the depression mr. smarty pants with your “facts” and “history” and stuff, neener neener neener!”

    God it’s like talking with 4th graders who just spit and stick out their tongues to mask their complete ignorance.

    Come on clynicalpuddylostinthehead:

    how’d we get out of the depression?
    how’d UK France Germany recover after ww2?
