Donate your liver to science

I’d like to perform an experiment, and I’m looking for a couple of volunteers.

First, I need somebody with a good quality, professional “breathalyzer.”

Second, I need an approximately 200-pound man, willing and able to consume eight drinks in a single hour. (Sorry Sandeep, you don’t meet the weight requirement.)

If we can get both of these to this Tuesday’s Drinking Liberally, I’d like to see exactly how many drinks it takes to achieve a 0.17 percent blood-alcohol level, and a general idea of the associated level of impairment. In fact, in the interest of accuracy, I am graciously extending an invitation to Mike!™ McGavick to join us as our test subject.

Send me an email if you can volunteer either or both. Drinks are on me, as is the ride home.

    Was the Jew killer a conservative or liberal. In the Seattle Times we have the following quote:

    Haq’s friend said he couldn’t believe the timid, “geeky” man he knew from the tutoring center was capable of such violence.

    “Are you sure we’re talking about the same person?” he said Sunday………….

    He said Haq was not a devout Muslim and often complained that the Tri-Cities were too politically conservative.

    “I’m beginning to think I was his only friend in the Tri-Cities. I don’t recall him hanging out with anybody else.”

    Now for the other side we turn to Darryl’s story on HA July 30, 2006:

    Where to begin? First of all, the GOP cherrypicked its felon list by focusing solely on King County, and ignoring felon votes in counties that went heavily for Rossi. Second, nobody knows who most of those ineligible voters voted for. Third, the GOP list was heavily laden with errors. Fourth, the Democrats came up with their own offsetting list of nearly 1,000 felon voters from GOP precincts who were probably Rossi voters. The most comprehensive media analysis we have is the following article by the Seattle Times:

    Seattle Times, May 23, 2005:

    “Toss out felon vote, Gregoire still wins
    “By Seattle Times staff

    “For months, state Republicans have insisted that hundreds of votes cast illegally by felons put Democrat Christine Gregoire in the governor’s mansion. But a Seattle Times analysis finds that even if those votes were disqualified, Gregoire would still prevail over GOP challenger Dino Rossi.” http://tinyurl.com/nwex6

    But the definitive (and binding) analysis, of course, was the one done by a handpicked Republican judge in a handpicked Republican county — who subtracted 4 illegal votes from Rossi, and none from Gregoire. That was after a two-week trial involving the state’s best lawyers that cost $4 million.

    Maria Cantwell is a fucking liar when she says she voted against a bill that would cut minimum wage in Washington. Here’s the lies in her own words from excerpted from her “Waitress” ad:

    “When Republican leaders tried to cut Washington State’s minimum wage, I said “no.” My parents struggled and I worked as a waitress so I know people count on us getting these things right. We should be making it easier for people to be making a living not harder and we should be cutting taxes for working people not cutting wages. I’m Maria Cantwell and I approve this message because that’s who I’m fighting for, the people of Washington State.”

    It is simply incorrect to say that the bill would cut Washington’s minimum wage. Washington’s minimum wage is above the federal limit, and there was no provision whatsoever that would force cuts here. It is an out and out fucking lie for her to say that it would.

    In addition, it’s not possible to cut taxes for people making minimum wage. Can’t be done. It’s impossible because they don’t pay taxes. How the fuck do you reduce taxes to less than zero?

    So Maria is concerned about the theoretical chance that the tax bill may have decreased tip wages of waitresses in this state. Her colleagues gave her assurance that this wasn’t the case, and that if she wanted to change the language she could. She refused, at the orders of her party bosses. So, because she had to be obedient, our state loses the state sales tax deduction.

    Also, Maria and darcy really don’t care about low wage jobs, if they are union jobs. My daughter made minimum wage this summer at a major grocery store, but had to pay union dues regardless of how many hours she worked. She is part time and so has absolutely no say in the contract. Unions can dump on the poor all they want, dems and Maria and Darcy won’t make a peep. It’s the money, remember?

    Child sexual abuse by Muslims, the United Nations and your neighbor
    I don’t want to talk about pedophilia, child sex abuse, rape, … I really don’t. But I am compelled to do just that. Not because of the JonBenet Ramsey case. That is just one case, one child. I don’t want to talk about Islamic terror or illegal immigration, but again I am compelled to do so. I don’t care to talk about the United Nations any more, I reject them, but again I am forced to do so in the context of child abuse.

    Muslim Rape Wave in Sweden by Fjordman in FrontPage Magazine today forces me to concentrate on these ugly subjects.
    According to a new study from the Crime Prevention Council, Bråå, it is four times more likely that a known rapist is born abroad, compared to persons born in Sweden. Resident aliens from Algeria, Libya, Morocco and Tunisia dominate the group of rape suspects. According to these statistics, almost half of all perpetrators are immigrants. In Norway and Denmark, we know that non-Western immigrants, which frequently means Muslims, are grossly overrepresented on rape statistics. In Oslo, Norway, immigrants were involved in two out of three rape charges in 2001. The numbers in Denmark were the same, and even higher in the city of Copenhagen with three out of four rape charges. …

    A group of Swedish teenage girls has designed a belt that requires two hands to remove and which they hope will deter would-be rapists. “It’s like a reverse chastity belt,”
    It’s ugly reading, hard on the heart, mind, and soul. It is something we need to be aware of. You should read the entire article, but let me at this comment by Fjordman:
    The number of rapes committed by Muslim immigrants in Western nations are so extremely high that it is difficult to view them only as random acts of individuals. It resembles warfare. Muhammad himself had forced sex (rape) with several of his slave girls/concubines. This is perfectly allowed, both in the sunna and in the Koran. [snip]

    Janet S – All the bill did was say that tips have to be included when determining if an employee is making minimum wage. Those who say they would take home less are admitting that they lied about income by not reporting tips. But in no case would the minimum wage be reduced as Liar Cantwell and her minions here have stated.

  22. 35

    Roger Rabbit spews:

    120

    But in every case, waitress income would be reduced as Liar Redneck, Janet Whore, and GOP propagandists refuse to admit!

    Here’s how it works. Let’s say a restaurant owner pays Wendy Waitress $7.36 an hour ($5.15 in federal minimum wage states). Waitresses, restaurant owners, and customers have understood forever that tips are part of a waitress’s income. Sometimes the biggest part.

    Let’s say Wendy hustles, is always there with the coffee warmup, never fails to smile and ask if “everything is all right,” etc., and averages $5 an hour in tips. So, she’s making $12.36 an hour, right? Not great money, but she can eke out a living on it (remember, waitressing is not usually a 40-hour job; waitresses more commonly work 32 or 36 hour weeks).

    What the Republicans want to do is take that $5 an hour of tips and put it in the restaurant owner’s pocket. Yes, Wendy is still guaranteed $7.36 an hour. But now she has to average $7.37 an hour in tips to keep the first penny of tips.

    Now her income is $7.36 an hour instead of $12.36 an hour. That’s a 40 percent paycut for someone who is living on the economic margin to begin with.

    Don’t let Welsher (who’s so fucking cheap he refuses to pay a foolish $100 bet he made with Goldy — and lost) or Cheap Whore get away with their lame-ass efforts to whitewash what the Republican thieves in Congress are up to. They want to steal the contents of the waitress tip jar! How low can they get?

    Day 6 August 27, 2006 Where’s Goldy?

    Mayor Nickels’
    unprecedented tax increase proposal
    and
    Tim Eyman’s opposition campaign
    not only screws the taxpayers into paying extra for basic services, but it also really puts Goldy and the rest of you seattle moonbats in a helluva predicament. I’ve been taunting Goldy for some time now with my “Where’s Goldy” series, and he still won’t tell us where he stands. No doubt, he’s between a rock and a hard place trying to figure out what to do. So as a true compassionate conservative, here are your options Goldy:

    1) Open up your wallet and pay more and more property tax every year until you are forced out of your home. Even if you can do it, do you want to make seattle a place where only the rich can live? Or do you not give a fuck about anybody else?

    2) Join Eyman’s campaign to fight defeat the tax increase, and expose yourself to be the fucking hypocrite that you are. Admit that you are wrong about taxpayer rights, and thank Tim in pubic for giving you the right to vote on major policy issues.

    3) Support the tax hike and agree that the tax money has to be raised, but make somebody other than you pay. You could take the tried and true class envy approach and make those “rich people” in Magnolia and Queen Ann pick up the tab. Remember, a “fair tax” in moonbat parlance is a tax that the other guy has to pay.

    4) Or just keep quiet and hope I go away. That’s not gonna happen.

    Maybe Goldy could be the test subject. We can get some professional laboratory measuring devices, and see how big a “pint” of Manny’s is. Assuming 16 fluid ounces and 5.5%, you get 0.88 ounces of alcohol, which is equal to 1.8333 “drinks” (12 ounces @ 4% = 0.48 ounces of alcohol).

    If Goldy weighs 170 pounds, it should only take 6.8 “drinks” to be equivalent to a 200 pound man at 8 “drinks”. This isn’t scientific exactly, but reasonably close enough to extrapolate this way.

    Four “pints” of Manny’s should be 7.333 “drinks”. So if Goldy can gulp down this much in an hour, we should have a pretty good approximation.

    “It’s over nice warm Caribbean waters, and far enough off the coast of Haiti that it is still strengthening now,” said Ron Goodman, a forecaster at the center.

    The storm, moving northwest at 10 mph, was projected to make landfall in Haiti on Sunday afternoon, dropping heavy rain that could cause deadly mudslides in the heavily deforested country. Ernesto was expected to cross west-central Cuba on Tuesday night before continuing into the Gulf of Mexico. [[[……………………Carl, Does this prove that George Bush hates blacks in Haiti?

    Well okay, that’s this morning’s comedy. Where were we? Oh yes. Other web sites. I found one that called Roger Rabbit “the Anti-Christ.” I thought that was pretty funny. I’m wondering, though, what that job pays and if it comes with perks. I could use medical bennies, as I’m currently paying a third of my income for health insurance premiums — that’s before the deductibles, co-pays, and noncovereds. So much for the grossly overrated private enterprise system; another market failure — what good is private health insurance if they don’t insure anybody except healthy young people, and nobody cna afford it? But I digress … we were talking about “other web sites.” Eric, a moderator over at Sucky Politics, seems to think I might be an SP poster named “Steven” (or something like that). He’s got way too high an opinion of himself and his sucky little blog (I’m referring to Eric, not Steven who is one of the good guys). First of all, I wouldn’t waste my time on that cesspool of anti-intellectualism. Secondly, I don’t hang out with perverts unless they have pink ears and cute cottontails. If it’s a bunny, I’ll fuck it, but that’s another story. I have no choice; that’s the job nature assigned to me — making MORE BUNNIES!!! But I digress … just to show you how stupid wingnuts like Eric are, let me ask this question:

    What makes Eric think he would let Roger Rabbit post on Sucky Politics?

    What I mean is, I would be gone in 30 seconds. Wingnuts like Eric don’t believe in free speech, and they sure as hell don’t have any skin for criticism. Hell, they can’t even stand disagreement! So I don’t think they would handle it too well when I started calling them unpatriotic America-hating fascist traitors who ought to be hanged, which is exactly what they are. I don’t know whatever possessed Eric to think he would let me post stuff like that on his blog. (Well, it isn’t really Eric’s blog, it belongs to Stefan and Eric is just freeloading on it, but that’s a distinction not worth mentioning because I really don’t care about wingnut freeloading when they’re freeloading on each other; it’s their freeloading on the public dole that concerns me.)

    And last, but not least, Eric must be insane to think I would “out” myself by posting on his pathetic little blog. After all, they require you to register, they can backtrack your IP address, and they routinely “out” posters whose opinions they don’t like. There’s no reason for me to believe they would like my opinions; and there’s evidence to the contrary, for example, when they call me things like “a sick puppy.” (Kinda feeble name-calling if you ask me, but then, Republicans are notorious for their illiteracy, lack of imagination, lack of initiative, and above all, their spinelessness.) The IP address is no big deal, I really don’t care who knows the address I’m posting from.

    Roger Rabbit’s address: 7364 E. Green Lake Dr. N.

    And I don’t really care if they tell the world my name is Mandrake Rothschild von Eppelganger IV.

    But registering? No, I won’t register. Too much work, just to get kicked off their pathetic little blog by a spineless moderator with skin as thin as rice paper. Not worth the effort.

    So quit flattering yourself, Eric. I’m not Steven, and I don’t waste my time worrying about your pathetic little opinion of me on Stefan’s pathetic little blog. But if you know where I can apply for that Anti-Christ job, please fax me the application … I want the bennies.

    Mary Kay’s father was so extreme that he even got kicked out of the John Birch Society:

    “Schmitz won back his state senate seat in 1978. He was named chairman of the Constitutional Amendments Committee. However, his behavior became increasingly erratic. For instance, soon after his election, he advocated a military coup similar to that of Augusto Pinochet in Chile.

    In 1981, he chaired a committee hearing on abortion, which led to the issuance in his name of a press release headlined “Senator Schmitz and His Committee Survive Attack of the Bulldykes”. It referred to his audience at the hearings as having “hard, Jewish, and arguably female faces.” Feminist attorney Gloria Allred, who testified before the committee, sued Schmitz for $10 million, but settled for $20,000 and an apology. Schmitz’s “apology” read, in part, “I have never considered her to be…a slick, butch lawyeress”. The incident cost him his committee chairmanship. It was too much even for the John Birch Society, which stripped him of his membership for “extremism.” Despite this, Schmitz announced plans to run for the Republican nomination for the United States Senate in 1982.”

    Roger Rabbit @ 122

    I looked at Mike McGavick’s MySpace.Com page, and didn’t reach the conclusions that you were hinting at.

    On the other hand, I did find what could be another candid admission by McGavick, potentially even more powerful than admitting to the DUI charge 13 years ago:

    “Right now I am currently running for the United States Senate. I left Safeco back in January to focus on the campaign.”

Before you leftist moonbats go nuts, Pellet “claims” to be a Rabbit. We know most rabbits are white. He claims to have a “cotton tail”. He has told people to suck on it. Need I say more. Oh yes, he’s a human bestiality machine correctly identified by Mummified: “Irrelevant repetition.

    Here is a link to the Safeco Corporation 2006 Proxy Statement:

    http://library.corporate-ir.ne.....541ACL.pdf

    An excerpt from Page 24 and 25 of the 2006 Proxy Statement, or Pages 27 and 28 of the PDF document above:

    Former CEO Compensation—Mike McGavick

    Mike McGavick was our CEO throughout 2005. He stepped down as CEO, president and chairman effective December 31, 2005. Mr. McGavick remained an employee of Safeco through February 28, 2006, providing transition services. Mr. McGavick’s 2005 compensation included base annual salary, bonus, and compensation under the Transition Services Agreement Safeco entered into with him on December 6, 2005 in connection with his departure from Safeco. We filed this agreement as an exhibit to our report on Form 8-K filed on December 8, 2005. The Transition Services Agreement superseded our Amended and Restated Employment Agreement with Mr. McGavick dated January 5, 2005, and its terms are described below.

    Terms of Transition Services Agreement The agreement reduced Mr. McGavick’s annual base salary from $1,150,000 to $750,000 effective December 1, 2005, and effective January 1, 2006, it further reduced his annual base salary to $100,000. These reductions reflected his reduced responsibilities in connection with his resignation as Chairman and CEO and our appointment of Paula Rosput Reynolds as our new President and CEO. The agreement provided that Mr. McGavick would be eligible to receive a 2005 bonus based on: (i) a smooth and orderly transition of the responsibilities of the chief executive officer; (ii) his commitment to remain employed and to provide transitional support to Safeco through February 28, 2006; and (iii) Safeco’s financial and operating performance for 2005. On February 15, 2006, we awarded Mr. McGavick a bonus with respect to 2005 of $2,314,180 based on these criteria.

    Because Mr. McGavick agreed to (i) remain as Safeco’s President and CEO until a successor was in place; (ii) provide transition services through February 28, 2006; and (iii) not compete with Safeco or solicit its employees for a period of three years following termination of his employment, we also accelerated the vesting of unvested options to purchase 210,298 shares of Safeco common stock. These options would have vested under their original terms in May 2006. Based on the closing share price of $51.51 on February 28, 2006, this acceleration had a value to Mr. McGavick of approximately $3.3 million. All other equity awards that were not vested as of February 28, 2006 were cancelled. As a result, Mr. McGavick forfeited approximately $7.0 million in unvested equity awards based on the $51.51 closing share price as of February 28, 2006.

    Equity We awarded Mr. McGavick 72,848 PM-RSRs in March 2005 for 2004 performance, which were to vest in four equal annual installments beginning in February 2006. The grant had a value on the date of grant of $3,587,036, but because Mr. McGavick’s employment with Safeco terminated February 28, 2006, he forfeited three quarters of that grant. Mr. McGavick did not receive any PM-RSRs or other equity awards for 2005 performance.

    Performance Factors and Alignment with Shareholder Interests We based our decision to award Mr. McGavick a cash bonus of $2,314,180 for 2005 based on the qualitative and quantitative performance factors set forth in his Transition Services Agreement described above, all of which are aligned with our shareholders’ interests. The performance factors were his performance during 2005, his provision of transitional services to Safeco through February 28, 2006 and the following company performance criteria: net written premium growth, combined ratio, operating earnings per share, and operating return on equity. Mr. McGavick remained employed by Safeco through February 28, 2006 and helped ensure a smooth and orderly transition of leadership.

    Your link also fails to address my comment, which was:

    2000 – $1,372,376,000,000 (baseline year)
    2001 – $1,297,063,000,000
    2002 – $1,152,413,000,000
    2003 – $1,069,364,000,000

    Now I don’t see you challenging these numbers, Redneck. Let’s recap: You said cutting taxes ALWAYS increases revenue. I called bullshit on your statement. As you can see from the revenue statistics for 2001, 2002, and 2003, federal revenues DECLINED for three consecutive years after Bush cut taxes. What part of these numbers don’t you understand?

    Did revenues grow in 2004 and 2005? Yes, modestly. Why? Because tax collections from corporations and CEOs are booming. Corporations are making record profits, so naturally they’re paying more taxes. And top execs are taking most of those profits for themselves (leaving little or nothing for shareholders), so of course they’re paying more taxes, too. In all other categories of federal tax collections, revenues are flat or still declining.

    The irony is, the only two sectors of the federal revenue stream that are producing increased collections are precisely the taxes that Republicans are targeting for further cuts or elimination. They want to do away with corporate income taxes altogether, and they want even deeper cuts in the top tax rates. How will the increased collections from these two sources be sustained, if those taxes are cut? The answer is, cutting those taxes will decrease the revenues from those sources.

    Fucking liar — that’s you, Redneck, you’re a fucking liar.

    Roger Rabbit spews:

Just an out and out fucking lie. So this whole thing affects a small subset of a small subset of employees. It’s not employees as Liar Cantwell would have us believe.

    2) If you say Wendy Waitress was taking home $12.36/hour, then she’s above the minimum wage.

    Will America Survive to 2050?
    By Patrick J. Buchanan – August 25, 2006

    “In 376 a large band of Gothic refugees arrived at the Empire’s Danube frontier, asking for asylum. In a complete break with established Roman policy, they were allowed in, unsubdued. They revolted, and within two years had defeated and killed the emperor Valens – the one who had received them – along with two-thirds of his army, at the battle of Hadrianople.”

    So writes Oxford’s Peter Heather in “Fall of the Roman Empire: A New History of Rome and the Barbarians,” who is convinced that Valens’ welcoming of the Goths was the decision that sealed the fate of the empire.

    As recent headlines tell us of 5 million more immigrants having arrived in America in the last five years, we see now, no longer as through a glass darkly, how America ends.

    There are 36 million immigrants here, a number almost equal to all who ever came from Jamestown in 1607 to JFK. We are host to more illegal aliens, 12 million, than all the Jews, English and Irish who came over 400 years.

    In George W. Bush’s tenure, 6 million intruders have been caught on our southern border breaking in. One in 12 had a criminal record. Behind them, waiting to see if Bush will grant amnesty or secure the border, are the world’s 4 billion to 5 billion people whose average income is less than that of Mexico.

    Last year, 155,000 OTMs (”other than Mexicans”), triple the number of 2003, from Latin America, the Middle East, Africa and Asia, were caught. Four of five never appeared in court. They vanished into our midst.

    These numbers are astronomical by any historical standard, and the mindset of many newcomers is not that of the Ellis Island generation. On May 1, almost a million Hispanics marched under Mexican flags through Los Angeles to demand the rights of U.S. citizenship for all illegals. Aerial shots revealed huge signs reading, “This is Our Land” and “Chicano Power.” In Mexico City, PAN party members marched beside communists and Subcommandante Marcos in solidarity with their kinsmen in America.

    “With all due respect to Uncle Sam,” declaimed one Mexican TV reporter, “this shows that Los Angeles has never stopped being ours.”

    Added the respected Mexican pundit Sergio Sarmiento, if Mexicans “have begun the reconquista of the territory that the United States took by force from Mexico between 1835 and 1848, they have been able to do this thanks to the fact that the Americans themselves have permitted it.”

    Redneck — so now you’re trying to paper over your lies with more lies … you say tipped employees are “a small subset of a small subset of employees.” Let’s do a fact check:

    “Waiting tables is one of the most common occupations in the … (t)he Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates that, as of May 2005, there are over 2.2 million persons employed as waiters and waitresses in the U.S.” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Waiter

    And that’s just wait staff, which doesn’t include other categories of tipped employees, such as hotel workers, cab drivers, etc.

    If this thing passes, Democrats and organized labor should organize a nationwide boycott of businesses that count tip income toward their employees’ minimum wage.

    “What percentage of child rapist are MALE?” Commentby sgmmac— 8/26/06@ 9:10 pm

    At least one isn’t. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mary_Kay_Letourneau

    Maybe her upbringing had something to do with it:

    “Mary Kay’s father was John G. Schmitz, a U.S. Congressman from Orange County, California and a professor at Santa Ana College. He was generally considered one of the more conservative members of the House, and ran for the Presidency in 1972 on the ultra-conservative American Independent Party ticket.”

    You wanted to know where the “stealing” comes in. I’ll tell you. When the waitress does the work, and the customer leaves a tip in the belief it will go to the waitress as part of her pay for the work she does, but the employer deducts it from the base pay he’s required by law to pay her, that’s stealing. It’s stealing because he didn’t do the work, the waitress did, and it’s her money. It’s stealing because the customers thought they was tipping the waitress, not the restaurant owner, and he’s deceiving the customers. It’s stealing because the employer is expropriating the fruits of the waitress’s labor to himself. And it’s immoral. And you’re an immoral fuck for supporting it.

    Is it clear now? Any questions?

    Another troubling aspect about Maria Cantwell’s minimum wage lie is why she would lie about a relatively minor matter such as this. If she’ll lie about this, what else does she lie about? Does she also lie about the big stuff? Probably…

    How the fuck can we trust people like her with an issue as important as national security when she lies about trifling matters such as minimum wage?

    Doesn’t that kinda bother you guys?

    Let’s do the math.

    Waitress earnings before Republican minimum wage bill:

    $12.36 an hour (assumes $5 an hour tips)

    Waitress earnings after Republican minimum wage bill:

    $7.36 an hour (assumes $5 an hour tips)

    Notice the waitress is still earning the same $5 an hour tips. The only thing that has changed is her income — from $12.36 an hour to $7.36 an hour. How is that not a wage cut? One of two things is happening here. Either she’s now making $2.36 an hour minimum wage plus $5 an hour tips, or she’s making $7.36 an hour minimum wage and the employer is stealing her tips. I say “stealing” because the employer sure as hell isn’t waiting the tables, nor do the customers think they’re tipping the employer. They think they’re tipping the waitress.

    It’s really immaterial whether the Republicans prefer to call it “stealing the tips” instead of “cutting the minimum wage.” Any way you slice it, they’re lifting $5 an hour of the waitress’s paycheck and putting it in the restaurant owner’s pocket.

    Now I wonder if Redneck has thought about this. What do you suppose will happen when restaurant patrons realize their tips don’t go to the waitress, but to the restaurant owner? They’ll stop tipping, that’s what. The customers will figure they’re already paying the restaurant owner for the meal, and rather handsomely at that. (Have you priced restaurants lately?) Why should they tip the restaurant owner when he’s already soaking them with the menu prices? And why should they leave a tip for the waitress, if the restaurant owner is going to scoop it up and put it in his own pocket? Tips will dry up. No waitress will make more than $7.36 an hour. No restaurant owner will be able to get anyone to work.

    This is the thing Republicans haven’t figured out yet about their anti-worker policies. Between low wages and taxing the shit out of wage earners while owners of capital get a free ride (case in point: the current exemption for inherited wealth is $2.5 million, while the current exemption for wage earners if $3,600, give or take), the CHEAP LABOR CONSERVATIVES are destroying incentives to work. Nobody in his right mind will get a job or do any work! We will become a nation of real estate flippers selling the same rental condos to each other, back and forth, while China produces everything we buy (and eventually ends up owning everything in America, including the real estate). If this CHEAP LABOR CONSERVATIVEphilosophy

    Muslims are on a rape rampage in Europe? Why am I not surprised? Must have something to do with the fact that they consider women PROPERTY.

    Many Muslim extremist also circumcise their female children – to include sewing up their vaginas.

    United Nations soldiers are raping children around the world, many as young as 5.

    In dozens of countries after a women or girl is raped – she is killed by her own family.

    In many countries to include Iraq under Saddam, rapes are performed on women and young girls as punishment for something that her father or brother has done wrong.

    1400 women die in the US every year from domestic violence – that’s 4 women a day.

    Before I go up the hill for breakfast, I just want to remind all of you that Redneck said cutting taxes always increases revenue.

    Let’s check that against the facts:

    2000 – $1,372,376,000,000 (baseline year)
    2001 – $1,297,063,000,000
    2002 – $1,152,413,000,000
    2003 – $1,069,364,000,000

    (Data from official sources)

    Yep, just as you thought — Redneck is a LIAR. (He’s also a welsher and deadbeat who doesn’t pay his debts.) Later, Redneck — I’ll see you when I see you, if they don’t hang you first.

    Letourneau spouse gets DUI sentence

    Vili Fualaau, who married his former sixth-grade teacher Mary Kay Letourneau, was sentenced Friday in SeaTac Municipal Court to a year in jail for drunken driving, with the time suspended except for one day.

    Fualaau, 23, was pulled over for speeding Dec. 22. A breath test found a blood-alcohol level of 0.136 percent, well above the 0.08 percent state limit. The 1999 Cadillac he was driving was registered to Letourneau.

    Fualaau also must pay court costs of about $2,100, including a $350 fine. He will be on probation for two years.

    Dear Puddypuller,

    Um, well, I am not sure how to tell you this. I, um, well, this is going to hurt you, but, I, uh, don’t have any idea what you are talking about. I don’t do obtuse. I ended the post about Ms. Harris (which you did not challenge) with “’nuff said”. I was not stealing your moniker, or using a copywrited phrase. I was simply shortening “enough said” as an excalamtion point. No different than using “y’all”, “goin'” or “somethin'”. Don’t flatter yourself or try to increase your own sad, delusional self-importance. Your “inside” knowlege of this blog is relevant only to you. I post on the topic, and move on. I don’t catalog and file every post as you apparently do. I have a life and only stop by here for amusemnet. Unlike yourself who seems to think posting here is the way to prove your intelligence (or lack thereof) and manliness (or lack thereof).

    Have a nice day, Pudwhacker.

    According to UNISYS, we had five hurricanes and six tropical storms by this time last season: http://weather.unisys.com/hurricane/atlantic/2005/

    And we have had four tropical storms and one hurricane so far this season: http://weather.unisys.com/hurricane/atlantic/2006/

    Pan American Health Organization:
    “Global warming as well as routine, cyclical climate changes are causing a higher number of strong hurricanes in the Caribbean, meteorologists say. Add to that the increasing number of people living in areas such as coastlines, in substandard housing and the destruction in a crisis of essential infrastructure, such as hospitals, and you have the potential for more devastating disasters than a few decades ago.”

    Really, what we DO know is that the study of hurricanes and otehr storms has become so much more sophisticated in recent years that “strength,” “intensity,” or even numeric comparisons with earlier periods may be of little value.

    Following the “do federal revinues rise or dip after tax cuts” thing:

    First, RR and MTR appear to be using roughly the same data, which RR cuts off in 2003, which is when MTR’s curve begins to rise.

    I looked at that Treasury chart MTR linked to and noticed something. And all Republicans are guilty of this, USTreas and MTR included. They mention only the 2003 tax cut bill, ignoring that the president ALSO “signed” tax cut bills in 2001 and 2002 (as though the effect of a tax bill is when the president signs it, and not in the next year when the law takes effect or half a year after THAT when tax returns under that legislation are filed). They also ignroe the effects of the recession of 2001 and the 2001 attacks, both of which slowed growth.

    In general, I would say that the revenue curve shows us that it took the econopmy TWO FULL YEARS after the 9/11 attacks to begin to grow significantly, and that this reflects that the Bush policies propelled the mighty US economy to its slowest recovery from recession in out history, and that if you track jobs or real wages, the picture is even bleaker. Yes, the economy has grown, and yes, rising productivity has raised profitability, but that money has not “trickled down” ANYWHERE, as real wages continue relative stagnation, and the owners of capital are pulling away fast from all the rest of us.

    To put it midly, economic inequality is not good for the nation. Our economy depends on the American consumer, but in our current world of stagnant real wages, American consumers are borrowing to keep spending, including borrowing agaisnt their chief asset: housing. As interest rates rise and the folks in interest-only loans and ARMs are swamped, won’t consumer spoending dip? Doesn’t that mean recession on the way?
